    Statement from Debra Katz: "As Dr. Ford has said, she did not share her story publicly or with anyone for years following the incident with Judge Kavanaugh. It’s not surprising that Ms. Keyser has no recollection of the evening as they did not discuss it....” 1/2 .. It’s also unremarkable that Ms. Keyser does not remember attending a specific gathering 30 years ago at which nothing of consequence happened to her. Dr. Ford of course will never forget this gathering because of what happened to her there.” 2/2

    I'm 3 years younger Christine Blasey Ford. I grew up in an elite Seattle neighborhood, hanging around country club type places, going to tennis camps, and living in the culture of a girl coming to age in a wealthy enclave in the 1980's. That is not said to impress anybody. It just goes to show that I have an idea what kind of circles she walked in. Having read through the Holton-Arms yearbook pages from that era, I can say that the level of partying among those girls makes the Seattle 80's scene look mellow by comparison. They seemed to...
  • The midterms

    Folks, the midterm elections appoach us. History has shown that the midterm elections favor the party that is not in the White House. There have been exceptions, of course. In 1998, the Democratic party gained seats in both Houses. It was the fisrt time a party occupying the party in the White House had done so in a mid year election since 1934. In 2002, the GOP did the same thing. However, in 2006, 2010, and 2014 the party out of the White House gained seats in both Houses. Many Trump supporters here, lacking political savvy and ignoring history, believe...

    Enough of this crap! The Liberals and assorted nutcase Leftists are fighting for their way of life, their degenerate, depraved way of life. A perverted way of life they want to impose on our children and our grandchildren. We are righteously fighting for ours! The use of innuendo, lying, rumors, falsehoods, misinformation, smearing, misdirection, personal attacks, slut shaming, nut shaming are the required weapons. That is what is being done to Judge Kavanaugh and his family. Anything that can be gotten up into the media bloodstream is mandatory. We are creating reasonable doubt. The use of any and all rhetorical...

    On Laura Ingraham’s show tonight. Joe DiGenova said: “Here’s what’s interesting. Remember how the Democrats claimed she was outed by Republicans? Thirty days before anything was written about her, Doctor (Ford) approached the Washington Post on her own and asked to be interviewed as long as they maintained her confidentiality. She outed herself to the Washington Post thirty days before the first story.”

    I've thought about this long and hard and have even started several posts on the subject, but never completed them. Several pundits and casual observers have stated, "If Trump had not won, we'd have never known about the unmasking, illegal surveillance and the illegal collusion between the FBI, DOJ, CIA, DNC, etc., to influence the 2016 election. The very first time I heard that I thought, "That being the case, how many times has this happened in the past? Just how deep does the corruption go and for how long?" Operations the likes of the one that's unfolding before our...

    WASHINGTON — She went public just days before a critical vote and took a polygraph test to bolster her credibility. He unequivocally denied her years-old charges of sexual misconduct. Calls mounted to delay the vote and investigate. It was late September, and a Supreme Court seat hung in the balance. For those of a certain age in Washington, the past few days have felt like an eerie echo of the confirmation battle that consumed the capital in 1991 when Anita F. Hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexually harassing her. Now it is Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh who faces a hearing...
  • Dr. Ford's Polygraph Test

    09/18/2018 5:05:22 AM PDT · by ladyL · 107 replies
    I feel compelled to get something off my chest this morning about a profession I hold in high regard. I am a retired polygraph examiner and administered several thousand polygraph examinations during my career. I also was a Director and instructor of a national Polygraph School. The fact that Dr. Ford took a polygraph test and was said to have passed means nothing to me. Can a polygraph test be beat? Yes...it sure can. Actually the polygraph can't be beat the polygraph examiner can. As in a critical medical diagnosis, a second opinion is necessary for professional efficacy so too...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 13 September 2018 | Kimberley A. Strassel
    A long, thoughtful article on the 2018 battle for Congress got me thinking. Is it possible for the good folks at Free Republic to whip up a few short, punchy scripts for election commercials aimed at television and webcasting audiences? Perhaps excerpting the aforementioned article would be helpful: How Republicans Could Still Win A forthcoming poll suggests ways they can persuade voters in swing districts. This was a week of gloomy midterm polls for the Republican Party, with a wave of results projecting a Democratic takeover of the House and maybe even the Senate. But not all polls are created...
