Proof? Credibility of accusers? Coverup of scandals? Established connections between alleged victim(s) and accused?
Pattern of behavior?
Are we seeing any of this in the Kavanaugh allegations?
Did we see this with Clinton and others?
So much for comparisons.
Innocent people also vehemently deny accusations. Denial cannot be taken as a sign of guild, except in the tiny little minds of the agenda-driven left. They have a narrative, and they will work as hard as needed to fit their desired message.
Don’t they have anything better to spend money on?
Is the ACLU a tax exempt organization? If yes, that should be pulled TODAY!!!
ENOUGH of “the rules only apply to the right” attitude within government!!!
Funny, isn’t it, that they only mention Clinton’s lie about Lewinsky, but there is no mention of Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, or Paula Jones.
Let them blow their money on advertising. And let their donors think about whether this is an organization worthy of their dollars.
“Recovered Memories”; McMartin Style, All Over Again.
Keep in mind, Blasey (now Ford) was about the right age to have gotten swept up in the eighties recovered memory/Satanic Panic hysteria while she was in school.
And impressionable. And maybe “looking to make a difference.”
BREAKING: This is HUGE (waiting for permission to h/t): One of Christine Ford Blasey’s research articles in 2008 included a study in which participants were TAUGHT SELF-HYPNOSIS & noted hypnosis is used to retrieve important memories “AND CREATE ARTIFICAL SITUATIONS.” pic.twitter.com/11n1JVnArM

If you’ve never seen the great James-Woods-starring HBO movie Indictment: The McMartin Trial, Wikipedia sums up the real-life trial of a perfectly-innocent family running a dayschool based on “recovered memories” of kids who claimed they’d been sexually abused in Satanic rituals:
The McMartin preschool trial was a day care sexual abuse case in the 1980s, prosecuted by the Los Angeles District Attorney Ira Reiner. Members of the McMartin family, who operated a preschool in Manhattan Beach, California, were charged with numerous acts of sexual abuse of children in their care. Accusations were made in 1983. Arrests and the pretrial investigation ran from 1984 to 1987, and the trial ran from 1987 to 1990. After six years of criminal trials, no convictions were obtained, and all charges were dropped in 1990. When the trial ended in 1990, it had been the longest and most expensive criminal trial in American history. The case was part of day-care sex-abuse hysteria, a moral panic over alleged Satanic ritual abuse in the 1980s and early 1990s.
The stories they told were literally unbelievable. Literally. Unbelievable. Kids told them about “The Naked Movie Star Game” where they’d have to undress and strut the cat-walk for guests.
In another incident, kids claimed that they were led to a ceremony to engage in Satanic rites. A photo array was put before a kid, and he was asked to circle any faces of the men who took them to the ceremony.
The two men identified? An LA attorney and martial arts legend Chuck Norris.
This link may not work for long, but this seems to be the full movie.
The Chuck Norris part is at 109:30.
Of course, that’s just the case they made a movie about — this panic swept up all of America. Commenters remind me that Janet Reno made her reputation (to the extent she has one) riding this wave of insane panic.
The Committee was holding an inquiry on whether President Bill Clinton had committed impeachable offences in his handling of the Paula Jones sexual harassment suit..... during which he committed perjury regarding his affair with then-White House Intern Monica Lewinsky. After an investigation, the committee in December 1998 voted to impeach Clinton, a decision supported by Schippers.
On December 10, 1998, Schippers said to the committee: "The President, then, has lied under oath in a civil deposition, lied under oath in a criminal grand jury. He lied to the people, he lied to his Cabinet, he lied to his top aides, and now he's lied under oath to the Congress of the United States. There's no one left to lie to."
One Clinton lies.....
"I never had sexual relations with that woman...Miss Lewinsky."
And the other Clinton swears to it.
Standing by her man (sniffle).
VINTAGE TIME COVER The Clintons leave the WH
arm-in-arm after Bill got lewinskied. Plotting to exploit
Bill's BJ for votes, the Clintons' political apparat never faltered.
That smirk on Hillary's face tells the story.
Hillary later went on network TV all decked out in virginal pearls,
denying everything, blaming Billy's B/J on "an invention of a VRWC."
Bill later admitted to it, was impeached, and disbarred.
He had to pay Paula Jones 850,000 dollars.
Yep - Clinton and that famous Black guy have nothing left to offer them...doing a Cindy Sheehan on them and discarding them as wrung-our/used-up husks...
this will only help our side...
Good thing they protect civil liberties like innocent until proven guilty.
The difference is, they WERE lying.
