Anatomy of a High Tech Lynching

So, I imagine you’ve heard, this Bernie supporting California Professor, Christine Blasey Ford, has suddenly remembered that she was sexually assaulted by none other than Brett Kavanaugh. But she doesn’t remember what house, address, or even the year. Hard to defend against that, there is no there, there.

It’s a bit suspicious I think, that Diane Feinstein sat on the allegation for well over a month, during which the nomination interviews and hearing were held, and only brought it forth, and anonymously a few days before the committee vote. Odd, that?

Still, she deserves to be heard, but I’m pretty skeptical. So is Bookworm, as she relates here.

By now you’ve all heard that Christine Blasey Ford is the woman accusing Kavanaugh of attacking her 35 years ago, a claim he strenuously and absolutely denies. Her story is a bizarre pastiche of precise details and huge memory holes. It’s also got a big lie planted right in the middle, which is Ford’s claim that she always meant to be private and only went public now because she couldn’t hide anymore.

That’s bull crap. The moment Ford sent a letter to a Democrat pol, she knew with absolute certainty that this would be a big deal, that her name would emerge, and that she’d become the Democrats’ new darling.

Put aside for now the fact that the notes don’t jive with the accusations Ford is making. Focus, instead, on that date: 2012.

It’s a weird date. Keep in mind that Ford, aside from being a Bernie supporting academic, is a psychologist. Part of getting a degree in psychology is going through analysis. One would think that, even if, as a shy 15-year-old, Ford was too afraid to go public with her charge against Kavanaugh, when she went through psychoanalysis on her way to her degree, she would have spoken about this alleged assault, especially because she says it traumatized her for years. But she didn’t. Instead, suddenly, in 2012, she’s bathed in flop sweat from an incident decades before.

In an update, Book informs us that getting psychoanalyzed is not part of a psychology degree, although it is for an analyst. A small matter, really, but worth correcting. You may know what we called psychology majors in my world: “Nuts and s***s”. I’ve never found a valid reason to reverse that youthful opinion.

So what happened in 2012? Coincidentally (or not), 2012 was another election year.

In 2012, Romney ran against Obama. Up until his 47% gaffe, Romney was doing well. He actually had a shot of winning.

For the Democrats, as has been the case since Bork, having a Republican in the White House, especially with the ever-aging but never retiring Ruth Bader Ginsburg a perpetual risk, raised the specter of a conservative judge getting appointed to the Supreme Court. With that in mind, one Twitter user, who must have an amazing memory, remembered something interesting he’d read back in 2012:

I’ll save you a click to The New Yorker website. The article, which The New Yorker published in 2012, is a Jeffrey Toobin analysis about Bret Kavanaugh and the threat he would pose should he get on the Supreme Court. According to Toobin, Kavanaugh was a scary conservative who, if he got on the Court, might overturn Obamacare:

In other words, according to Kavanaugh, even if the Supreme Court upholds the law this spring, a President Santorum, say, could refuse to enforce aca because he “deems” the law unconstitutional. That, to put the matter plainly, is not how it works. Courts, not Presidents, “deem” laws unconstitutional, or uphold them. “It is emphatically the province and duty of the judicial department to say what the law is,” Chief Justice John Marshall wrote in Marbury v. Madison, in 1803, and that observation, and that case, have served as bedrocks of American constitutional law ever since. Kavanaugh, in his decision, wasn’t interpreting the Constitution; he was pandering to the base.

In the nineteen-nineties, during Kavanaugh’s first brush with prominence, it was said that some conservatives suffered from Clinton derangement syndrome—an obsessive belief that the President and the First Lady had committed every misdeed that was attributed to them. (Hillary Clinton was involved in Vince Foster’s death; Bill Clinton had trafficked narcotics through Mena, Arkansas; and so on.) Kavanaugh’s bizarre opinion confirms that a contemporary analogue to the Clinton malady has taken hold: health-care derangement syndrome.

There’s more blah-blah from Toobin, a man who can never be trusted to be honest about the law. Don’t bother reading it. Just pay attention to that last paragraph:

If a Republican, any Republican, wins in November, his most likely first nominee to the Supreme Court will be Brett Kavanaugh. (Emphasis mine.)

In 2012, Romney might have won the election. In 2012, Toobin stoked Democrat fears that Kavanaugh, a conservative, might get on the Supreme Court and overturn Obamacare. And in 2012, Ford, a psychotherapist who undoubtedly had years of prior therapy herself, suddenly can’t stop talking about her hitherto undisclosed claim that Kavanaugh was a bad boy almost 30 years before.

There is quite a bit more there, and you owe it to yourself to read it.

Results: Well, so far the traitorous Jeff Flake, preparing for his new career as a Democrat wants to think about it. And that is enough to keep the nomination from reaching the floor from the committee, since no Democrat can survive Chuckie Schemer’s wrath and vote for Kavanaugh.

And Ford may even have a personal motive: It seems that when her parents were involved with a foreclosure case, years ago, the judge that ruled against them was Judge Martha Kavanaugh, Brett’s mother. Or so says PowerLine.

In other words, this has all the hallmarks of a planned character assassination, perpetrated by the Democrats, just as they did on Judge Bork and attempted to do on Justice Clarence Thomas, who first called it a high tech lynching in the Senate hearing. Of course, Democrats have lots of practice with lynching, although usually of black men who get uppity, as their action arm, the KKK used to say.

I speak for no one but myself, but if the Republicans (and even Susan Collins is very skeptical of this stunt) cannot get this nomination done, I see very little reason to ever vote for one of them again. I strongly doubt I’m the only one.

Why? Because the Republic in recognizable form will no longer exist. It is time for a bit of spine.

    I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed and that this will be the Lord’s doing. He is at work in America, although I am somewhat concerned by the President considering to get involved in the so-called “Peace Process”. America must not recognise a sovereign Palestinian state within the borders of the Promised Land.

      I doubt very much he will. Most Americans agree with you. For the rest, well, one hopes one is on God’s side. 🙂

      Not many things really anger me, but this attempted character assassination does very deeply.

        Me too – everything in this world is messed up at the moment. It’s got to the stage where my knee-jerk reaction to something new is: “If the Left hates it, it must be good!” They are enemies of freedom and of the Gospel.

          That about covers it. I liked yours today, BTW, just didn’t have anything to say.

          Thank you 🙂 No worries about comments – I think it’s hard to comment on things like hymnody and I didn’t say anything controversial. I felt AATW needed something more stable since the edginess recently. I had hoped when this recent wave of Catholic scandal broke that I could just sympathise with them going through it. I know in my head it’s wrong to kick people when they’re down, but I struggle to be completely peaceful with them at the moment. I blame Catholicism itself partly for what happened and I strongly believe that the Reformation, while not completely shielding us from problems opened up a way to get away from some of this stuff.

          I agree about AATW. And I mostly agree about Catholicism as well. Clergy sexual depravity wasn’t the only cause of the Reformation, but it was one of them.

          No, it’s not unheard of in our churches either. That’s why there are so many jokes about marriage counseling, but usually it’s not a power thing, just the weakness of the flesh.

      I hope you’re right. Possibly though the problem with Sessions and here with repbs not supporting the nomination or Trump is they are asking themselves “what they got on me?”
      As for as a Palestinian state, maybe the idea is to get’em all in one place and clean the plate? 🙂

        I know things look bad from a sensory perspective – but we must have faith in God. Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” God can do this; He can break the hold of abortion and He wants to. America was made as a covenant with God; your Founders appealed to Him for their liberties and in so doing consented to His limits on those liberties. He will prevail. He will dethrone the iniquitous people who have usurped the government of your land. Appeal to Heaven!
