    EXCLUSIVE: Woman Who Was High School Friend of Kavanaugh’s Calls Claim of Sexual Assault ‘Absolutely Fishy’ A friend who graduated high school the same year as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says she could not picture him in the situation described by the woman who accuses him of sexually assaulting her when they were teens. The allegation is “absolutely fishy,” Lisa Molina Heaps told The Daily Signal. “It’s interesting, even in those small social circles in Washington, D.C., private boys and girls schools, there were certain people who had reputations and people that had crazy reputations, people that had reputations...

    In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, another former classmate of Brett Kavanaugh's denies attending a party like the one described in the allegation made by Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her three decades ago when they were teenagers. Patrick J. Smyth attended Georgetown Prep -- an all-boys school in North Bethesda, Maryland -- alongside Kavanaugh. Both men graduated in 1983. Smyth signed a letter this summer, before the allegations against Kavanaugh were made public, testifying that Kavanaugh "is singularly qualified to be an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court,"...

    Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) said Tuesday that the Senate Judiciary Committee should subpoena a former classmate of Brett Kavanaugh as it examines sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. Jones weighed in shortly after the former classmate, Mark Judge, told committee leaders through his attorney that he won't testify and that he has no recollection about the alleged incident from the early 1980s. "You can count on the fact that that letter, his response, is going to be entered into the record by someone, and that needs to be tested as well," Jones, who is not a member of...

    How could anyone think it was a good idea to raise white students’ awareness of racial injustice through a group that excluded non-white students? The University of Maryland is facing backlash over a social-justice training that will provide a “safe space,” for white students only, to learn about racial issues. The controversy revolves around “White Awake,” which has been billed as a new “group for White students to talk about race.” A flyer advertising the group contained a series of questions: “Do you want to improve your ability to relate and connect with people different from yourself?” “Do you sometimes...

    Two women who dated Brett Kavanaugh during his high school and college years issued a joint statement in support of the judge, describing him as a “perfect gentleman” in the wake of a sexual misconduct allegation leveled by a California psychology professor. Maura Kane, who dated Kavanaugh in high school, says he always conducted himself in a deferential manner and they still remain friends after 35-years. “In every situation where we were together he always respectful, kind and thoughtful. The accusations leveled against him in no way represent the decent young man I knew,” Kane said in a statement on...

    Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser came forward, she says, because she feels it’s her “civic responsibility.” “These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid,” Ford told the Washington Post. “Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and my terror about retaliation.” Judge Kavanaugh has since issued two statements denying the allegations.
  • Before Kavanaugh Was Even Nominated, ‘Reluctant’ Ford Sent Letter To Congresswoman And Called WaPo

    In less than 24 hours, Christine Ford went from obscurity to becoming the most talked about woman in America. She claims she was reluctant to come forward with her accusations. Yet, when Brett Kavanaugh's name was first raised as a possible candidate for the nomination, she contacted both her Congresswoman, Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA), and the Washington Post tip line. Kavanaugh had not even received the nomination and she had already written a letter to a politician and contacted a major newspaper. Does that sound like someone who is wrestling with a decision? This woman has placed herself right at...

    The likely goal of Democrats is to delay a vote on confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and Sen. Diane Feinstein, who produced the letter of a woman accusing the nominee of inappropriate behavior, has yet another trick up her sleeve. Adding to the cause to delay the vote, Feinstein says there’s still more that senators don’t know about Kavanaugh, according to Talking Points Memo.

    American Thinker ^ | 9/17/18 | John David Powell
    Lots of folks like to throw around the term “fake news” to describe stories they do not like or stories that are, well, fake. I prefer the term “agenda journalism” because it does not make a judgment on the veracity of the reporting, and it can be easier to spot than the fake stuff that always has an agenda. The Huffington Post ran such a piece last week called “Gun owners more likely to vote than non-gun owners.” Do not accuse me of journalism profiling, because I believe even the editors of the HuffPost would eagerly agree they have a...

    Sen. Dianne FeinsteinÂ’s September surprise exploded yesterday as Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, came forward as the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault in 1981. The Washington Post broke the tale she was apparently reluctant to tell. With Kavanaugh about to swing the court to fascism, according to the left, well, her reluctance relented. Now we must decide how the Senate should react to this last-gasp attack.The answer is pretty simple: He should be confirmed. For whatever reason, Feinstein decided that these allegations should remain under wraps even from other Democrats during the...

    Attorney Debra Katz made the rounds Monday on morning television to argue her client’s sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be taken seriously, an appeal accepted even by the White House. But while her client's claims have raised bipartisan concerns about Kavanaugh, Katz, a longtime Democratic donor known for representing sexual harassment accusers, also has a history of downplaying or dismissing accusations made by women against Democratic politicians -- including former President Bill Clinton and former Minnesota Sen. Al Franken.

    Senator Dianne Feinstein Won’t Set Up Call for Kavanaugh Accuser to Testify It’s now official: This entire situation is a farce that needs to end immediately. Anything less shows the Democrats are profoundly unserious about the allegations being made against Brett Kavanaugh. Over the weekend, Senator Dianne Feinstein made waves by going public with accusations against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. First, she revealed that someone who knew Kavanaugh in high school accused him of sexually assaulting her. Then the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, actually came out publicly. Senate Republicans tried to pull a fast one on her by challenging...

    During Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing earlier this month, Senate Democrats seemed content just scoring points with their base by quizzing the Supreme Court nominee about President Trump, abortion, dark money, racial issues and the like. Now, in the wake of Christine Ford's sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, Democrats appear to be shifting to a new strategy aimed at delaying the final confirmation vote until after the November 6 election and actually defeating the nominee. Playing to the base while implicitly acknowledging that Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation was unlikely to be slowed or stopped was a safe strategy. The same cannot...

    Debra Katz, the attorney for the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, said that it is not her client’s job to corroborate her claims. Katz said on CNN on Monday that investigators should be responsible for proving Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh held her down and drunkenly groped her while at a party in high school. During the interview, Katz revealed that there was another girl present at the party, which allegedly took place in 1982 while Kavanaugh was attending Georgetown Prep. Ford previously told the Washington Post that there were four boys at the party but never...

    President Donald Trump on Monday said that "if it takes a little delay" to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, that's alright. Trump stressed that Kavanaugh "never even had a little blemish on his record," adding, "He is somebody very special." The White House was reeling on Monday in the wake of explosive allegations by a California professor, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were teenagers. The allegations only became public in the past week, as Kavanaugh's confirmation seemed all but assured. Yet two Democratic lawmakers had known of them...

    Martha G. Kavanaugh, the mother of Brett Kavanaugh was a Maryland district judge in 1996. In an amazing coincidence, Martha Kavanaugh was the judge in a foreclosure case in which Christine Blasey-Ford’s parents were the defendants. Now it all becomes clear. Blasey-Ford is going after Brett Kavanaugh, not because of what he did in high school. Instead, Christine Blasey-Ford is going after Brett Kavanaugh out of spite and revenge for a case rulled on by Brett Kavanaugh mother. Martha Kavanaugh, Brett’s mother was Montgomery County Circuit Court judge from 1993 until she retired in 2001. During a 1996 foreclosure case,...
