GOOD GRIEF, LOOKS LIKE SOME ONE IS MOVING THE GOAL POST …
As reported at CNN, Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, she will not testify on Monday. She states there must be a FBI investigation first. HUH? So the woman who 35 years later makes a sexual assault allegation and cannot tell anyone for sure where or when it took place now demands an FBI investigation? Just what are they supposed to investigate? This is what the politicization and weaponizing of the #MeToo movement looks like. An individual who makes such an accusation after all these years, after all the statutes of limitations have run out, sorry, you need to defend your accusations. You are being provided an opportunity to tell your story and now you are saying no.
The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault says the FBI should investigate the incident before senators hold a hearing on the allegations.
In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys argue that “a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.”
The letter from Ford’s lawyers notes that despite receiving a “stunning amount of support from her community,” Ford has also “been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats” and has been forced to leave her home.
“We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you and Ranking Member Feinstein to discuss reasonable steps as to how Dr. Ford can cooperate while also taking care of her own health and security,” the letter from Ford’s lawyers said.
Ford’s attorney Lisa Banks told Cooper that Ford will talk with the committee but added, “She is not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday.”
The accuser was given an opportunity to be heard, now she wants to delay this and turn it to even more of a circus. Sorry if this looks like a total polical hit job and an orchestrated Democrat ploy to delay the Kavanaugh vote. This delay of producing this letter was purposeful.
LOOKS LIKE DIFI IS DOING A CYA WHEN IT COMES OUT THAT THIS WAS ALL A POLITICAL SCAM …
As reported at the National Review, Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA-D) told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked if she believed Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation, “[Ford] is a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted. On this . . . I can’t say that everything is truthful. I don’t know.” WHAT!?! This coming from the Senator that has started this chaos at the 11th hour? Read the many reactions to Feinstein’s comments on Twitchy.
I can’t say that everything is truthful. I don’t know.
Senator Dianne Feinstein of California conceded Tuesday that she can’t attest to the veracity of Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.
“[Ford] is a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted. On this . . . I can’t say that everything is truthful. I don’t know,” Feinstein told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked if she believed the allegation.
Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, has been maligned by her Republican colleagues for failing to disclose the sexual-harassment accusation after initially being made aware of it via a letter from Ford in July.
Asked why she did not make her Judiciary Committee colleagues aware of the allegation at the beginning of Kavanaugh’s vetting process, Feinstein hesitated before citing Ford’s desire to remain anonymous.
Sen. Ted Cruz Grills Mark Zuckerberg … Facebook “Appears to be a Pervasive Pattern of Political Bias” (VIDEO)
ONCE AGAIN THE LEFT IS CAUGHT RED HANDED BEING BIAS …
Yesterday Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was front and center before a joint Senate committee answering questions regarding Facebook practices as to user information privacy and their obvious pattern of political bias. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked, are you a neutral public forum or are you engaged in political speech? Sen. Cruz then went on to point out to Mr. Zuckerberg that many Americans are concerned that Facebook is biased against conservatives. Cruz went on to ask why Facebook suppressed conservative news and why Facebook shut down certain pages it deems controversial, naming examples such as as “Chick-fil-A appreciation day” page, a post from a Fox News reporter, and Trump supporter Diamond and Silk’s Facebook page. Facebook deemed Diamond and Silk’s Facebook page, two black conservative women, to be unsafe to the community.
Questioning Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at a Senate hearing Tuesday, the Republican senator and former GOP presidential candidate said that to many people there “appears to be a pervasive pattern of political bias” after some conservative pages were taken down from the platform. In a series of pointed questions, Cruz asked Zuckerberg if he had tracked the political affiliations of his employees.
Zuckerberg said he had not. But he noted that the company is based in left-leaning Silicon Valley, and said “it is a fair concern.”
Finally, Facebook has been outed for what they truly are, a liberal, Left-wing, bias media platform. Facebook and Zuckerberg are not interested at all with a platform of all ideas. If that was the case there would not be so many examples of right leaning web sites being penalized by Facebook and even taken down. Zuckerberg could not come up with one example of a Left leaning site that was treated the same. Imagine that?
The senator cited the 2016 controversy over how Facebook editors handled conservative-leaning political news in the trending topics feature. He also questioned why Facebook shut down certain pages it deems controversial, naming examples such as as “Chick-fil-A appreciation day” page, a post from a Fox News reporter, and Trump supporter Diamond and Silk’s Facebook page.
“Senator, let me say a few things about this. First, I understand where that concern is coming from because Facebook and the tech industry are located in the Silicon Valley which is an extremely left-leaning place,” Zuckerberg said, addressing Cruz. “And this is actually a concern that I have and that I try to route out in the company — is making sure that we don’t have any bias in the work that we do.
He added that it was a “fair concern” before Cruz cut Zuckerberg off to ask if any left-leaning pages, like those of Planned Parenthood, Moveon.org, or Democratic candidates, had been shut down by Facebook.
Zuckerberg said he was “not specifically aware” of any pages that may or may not have been shut down.
Cruz pointed out that Facebook has 15,000 to 20,000 people working on security and content review, and asked if Zuckerberg was aware of those employees’ political orientations.
“No, Senator, we do not generally ask people about their political orientation when they are joining the company,” Zuckerberg replied.
SCOTUS Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says Election 2016 too ‘Macho’ for Hillary Clinton to Win … The LEFT Still Whining about their Loss (VIDEO)
RUTH BADER GINSBERG NEEDS TO STEP DOWN … NO ONE THIS POLITICAL NEEDS TO BE ON THE SUPREME COURT.
When will the LEFT let it go? Folks, its been more than a year since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election in an electoral landslide. An election that many said she could never lose. However, that’s why they play the game and the LEFT still cannot get over it. In an interview this past Sunday at Columbia University during a Women’s Conference Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, “I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized.” This was a doubling down on comments she made last year that sexism “no doubt” played a role in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election defeat. Good grief, REALLY? Where does this 84 year old Supreme Court justice get off being so political? She needs to step down if she is going to act in such a political and bias manner because obviously, by her own words and actions she can no longer be fair and just.
A note to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Hillary Clinton lost because she was a terrible candidate. In a change election, the Democrats nominated the most establishment candidate ever. America had Clinton fatigue and were tired of her corruption, scandals and lies. It is only those in Leftist group think that blame sexism for her loss. As it was she rigged the Democrat system against Bernie Sanders in the primaries, of which she barely won. I am curious, was it also sexism that caused Hillary to lose to Barack Obama in the 2008 primaries?
Ginsburg: ‘Macho Atmosphere’ & ‘Sexism’ Hurt Clinton in 2016 Election
Hillary Clinton has spent most of her days, post-election, pining about her loss and blaming it on the deplorables who followed President Donald Trump — the so-called sexist, misogynist atmosphere she perceives as marking her race to the White House.
Well now, here comes Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, tossing the same gender card. And not for the first time, either.
When asked by CNN’s Poppy Harlow during a Columbia University forum to clarify her previously made comments about sexism during the election year — that it was a “major factor” in determining the outcome — Ginsburg didn’t walk back, but rather ran head-first forward.
“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign,” Ginsburg said, The Hill reported. “[S]he was criticized in a way I think no men would have been criticized. I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer the same way I did, yes, that sexism played a prominent role.
In other words, Clinton was held to account on pretty much gender neutral political platforms. She was questioned about most of the same issues as Trump — except Trump, of course, was slapped hard for his past treatment of and remarks about women. If anyone was subjected to gender-based questioning, it was Trump, not Clinton.
Ginsburg, however, has described herself as a “flaming feminist litigator,” CNN reported. And she’s a flamer, apparently, who made widespread news for her inappropriate — for a supposedly unbiased court justice — who spent the pre-election weeks condemning the idea of a Trump presidency, wondering “what the country would be” with him in the White House, and threatening, maybe somewhat jokingly, maybe somewhat not, to move to New Zealand.
How long is the LEFT going to whine over Hillary Clinton’s loss? GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON!!!
How satisfying is it going to be when a Republican, preferably President Donald Trump gets to nominate her replacement on the Supreme Court?
LINDSEY, SHUT UP AND SKI …
In a loaded and politically bias interview with CNN’s Alpine Edge, US Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn was asked how she felt competing in an Olympics for the United States whose president is Donald Trump? Vonn responded by saying, “Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president.” Really, so you will be representing the people, not the president? Last time I checked Donald J. Trump was a person of the United States. It is sad that these athletes would let politics get in the way of athletics as all this has accomplished is having people, yes the American people, hate you. Lindsey, you do realize that 62,984,825 people of the United States voted for President Trump, right? It is a sad commentary that these athletes cannot shut up and just do what they are skilled at, instead of alienating half of America.
On a person note, I have skied since I was in the second grade. I grew up in a part of the country where we had half days on Wednesday and Friday so we could lean to ski. I have long followed Alpine skiing and snowboarding forever, long before it was cool to. And have known individuals who trained for the Olympic ski team and made it. And some who passed away in the pursuit of it. I have long cheered for Lindsey Vonn because of her amazing talent. However, for the first time I will find myself not cheering for Lindsey not to win Olympic gold. Not because she isn’t a Trump fan, but because she is so ignorant and bias in her beliefs, that she is acting like the very individual she thinks that Donald Trump is. It is sad that athletes think they have to mouth off and tell us about their political beliefs. WE DON’T CARE!!! Sports and the Olympics is an escape from politics. Thanks for ruining that Lindsey.
A number of US athletes have spoken out against Donald Trump during his presidency — and skier Lindsey Vonn has become the latest to have her say.
Targeting Olympic gold at February’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she spoke passionately about what it means to compete for the US ski team.
“Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn told CNN’s Alpine Edge.
And Vonn revealed she wouldn’t accept an invitation to the White House if she were to win gold at Pyeongchang.
“Absolutely not,” said Vonn. “No. But I have to win to be invited. No actually I think every US team member is invited so no I won’t go.
