  • Yale Law School Devours Its Own

    National Review ^ | 10/06/2018 | By MICHAEL KNOX BERAN
    New Haven realism was supposed to redeem the nation. Instead it gave us New Haven Nietzscheanism. ‘Like Saturn,” Jacques Mallet du Pan said of the French Revolution, it “devours its children.” The same might be said of Yale Law School. Cory Booker (Yale Law ’97) broke Senate rules to release documents he hoped would undermine Brett Kavanaugh (Yale Law ’90) in Kavanaugh’s quest for a Supreme Court seat, while Ronan Farrow (Yale Law ’09) published a New Yorker piece containing uncorroborated allegations that Kavanaugh exposed himself to a fellow student at a Yale dorm party. An old boys’ club, as...

    Charles Ludington, Lynne Brookes and Elizabeth Swisher attended Yale University from 1983 to 1987 with Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. We were college classmates and drinking buddies with Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. In the past week, all three of us decided separately to respond to questions from the media regarding Brett’s honesty, or lack thereof. In each of our cases, it was his public statements during a Fox News TV interview and his sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that prompted us to speak out. We each asserted that Brett lied to the Senate by stating,...

    A pair of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's former classmates at Yale Law on Tuesday withdrew their support of him after previously endorsements. Michael Proctor and Mark Osler wrote in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that they can no longer support Kavanaugh's confirmation because of the "nature" of his testimonty in front of the committee last week while addressing accusations of sexual misconduct. “In our view that testimony was partisan, and not judicious, and inconsistent with what we expect from a Justice of the Supreme Court, particularly dealing with...

    The New York Times has reported that the FBI has at least four witnesses who are of interest to the intelligence agency as it takes a look at Mr Kavanaugh’s past. However, several people who are not on the list have contradicted the nominee’s testimony about the nature of his partying and behaviour over three decades ago. Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Mr Kavanaugh’s who said he frequently drank with the nominee in college, told The New York Times: “When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive. “On one of the last occasions I purposely socialised with...

    A political figure getting questioned about a bar fight that results in no arrests might be news. A political figure that got questioned but not arrested by police 33 years ago for a bar fight because he allegedly threw ice? If the name is Kavanaugh, it’s news … for some reason. The New York Times broke the Flying Ice Story wide open last night: As an undergraduate student at Yale, Brett M. Kavanaugh was involved in an altercation at a local bar during which he was accused of throwing ice on another patron, according to a police report.The incident,...

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was reportedly questioned by police in 1985 after he was accused of throwing ice on someone during a college bar fight. The New York Times obtained a report from the New Haven Police Department on Monday dating back to when Kavanaugh was an undergraduate student at Yale University. Kavanaugh, then 21 years old, was questioned along with four other men after an early morning altercation at Demery’s bar in September 1985. Kavanaugh was not arrested but was accused of throwing ice on someone for “some unknown reason,” according to the report obtained by The Times....

    As an undergraduate student at Yale, Brett M. Kavanaugh was involved in an altercation at a local bar during which he was accused of throwing ice on another patron, according to a police report. The incident, which occurred in September 1985 during Mr. Kavanaugh’s junior year, resulted in Mr. Kavanaugh and four other men being questioned by the New Haven Police Department. Mr. Kavanaugh was not arrested, but the police report stated that a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him “for some unknown reason.” *** He said that the altercation happened after a UB40 concert, when...

    WASHINGTON — A Yale classmate of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s accused him on Sunday of a “blatant mischaracterization” of his drinking while in college, saying that he often saw Judge Kavanaugh “staggering from alcohol consumption.” The classmate, Chad Ludington, who said he frequently socialized with Judge Kavanaugh as a student, said in a statement that the judge had been untruthful in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee when he had denied any possibility that he had ever blacked out from drinking. Mr. Ludington said that Judge Kavanaugh had played down “the degree and frequency” of his drinking, and that the...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked a female classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh if he was “known at Yale as a virgin” in a Thursday evening interview. The far-left anchor for the cable news channel asked this embarrassing question of Lynne Brookes, who attended Yale with Kavanaugh. “I don’t believe it’s disqualifying to have partied in high school or in college,” Cuomo said. “But him telling the truth about himself is a more relevant standard. Was Brett Kavanaugh known at Yale as a virgin?”

    Deborah Ramirez was sexually assaulted at Yale. That part, she’s sure of—she was on the floor, drunk and incapacitated, when a man exposed himself. As she struggled to get up, he thrust his genitals in her face, causing her to touch his penis. Bystanders allegedly taunted her to “kiss it.” Then, it gets murky. Ramirez spent six days “assessing her memories” to determine whether the penis in question belonged to Brett Kavanaugh. She wasn’t sure. Apparently, it could have been anyone’s. Many people wondered why Ramirez needed six days to “assess her memories” about such a bizarre and offensive incident....
  • PHONE AUDIO: CNN Producer Cold-Calling Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale Classmates

    CNN producer Scott Bronstein is caught on tape calling around to Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates from the class of ’87. “Sender’s husband is a Yale grad and CNN is proactively contacting ‘87 Yale graduates who were in Pierson Residential College to try to dig up dirt on Kavanaugh,” Amy Dryden wrote on Facebook. The media has now put forward two sexual impropriety accusers: Palo Alto-based left-wing activist professor Christine Blasey Ford, and former George Soros Open Society Foundations senior fellow Deborah Ramirez, also a professor. But so far no concrete evidence has implicated Kavanaugh in any wrongdoing.

    Amy Chua, the Yale law professor and best-selling author who endorsed supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, has denied allegations that she instructed female law students to exude a “model-like” femininity when interviewing for clerkships with the judge. “Everything that is being said about the advice I give to students applying to Brett Kavanaugh – or any judge – is outrageous, 100% false, and the exact opposite of everything I have stood for and said for the last 15 years,” Chua said in a letter that was sent to the Yale Law School community. The Guardian and the Huffington Post published...

Mark Zuckerberg’s platform has also decided to ban the user who posted the audio. “This is what happens when you post an actual recording of a CNN producer’s dirty journalism on Facebook. #banned So wrong!,” tweeted Amy Dryden, who posted the Bronstein clip on Facebook after a friend sent it to her. Dryden also made clear that the number Bronstein provided on the audiotape was not Bronstein’s personal...

    More freshmen at both Harvard and Yale identify as LGBTQ than as politically conservative, according to surveys published by the universities’ student newspapers. According to Yale Daily News’ “Class of 2022: By the Numbers,” approximately 23 percent of the freshman class identify somewhere along the LGBTQ spectrum. This is up from 21 percent last year and 15 percent in 2016, according to the paper. At Harvard, a similar student survey in the Harvard Crimson found that more than 18 percent of the freshman class identify as something other than straight. This number has increased every year since 2014, when less...

    Students held a sit-in today at Yale Law School to protest the Kavanaugh nomination while some of their classmates traveled to Washington, D.C. for a similar protest. Classes were canceled to make time for all the protesting. From the Cut: Today, 115 YLS students bussed down to the U.S. Capitol, while dozens of others are occupying their school’s halls in a sit-in to demand that the Senate committee conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the mounting sexual-assault allegations against Kavanaugh. By early Monday morning, members of the law school faculty had already cancelled 31 of the day’s scheduled classes...

    In his careful reading of the available reports of the accusation made by Deborah Ramirez against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra found ten serious problems for those who want to believe it. Here they are: 1. The New Yorker could not find a single witness who could put Kavanaugh at the alleged party. 2. The New York Times could not find a single person who could corroborate Ramirez's claims. 3. The man accused of egging on Kavanaugh denied Ramirez's allegations and vouched for Kavanaugh's character. 4. A third person that Ramirez claimed was at the party says...

  • Christine Blasey Ford Reaches Deal to Testify at Kavanaugh Hearing [Rameriz story is falling apart]

    I want to excerpt a portion of this NY Times story. It looks like the new accusations against Judge Kavanaugh are already falling apart. The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.

    Powerline ^ | 09/23/18 | Steven Hayward
    I’ve been saying all week that you could expect another late hit on Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend, and right on schedule, we have the New Yorker story, which, as Paul and Scott have already noted, is pretty thin gruel. But it was absolutely necessary for the left to come up with a story like this, for several reasons. First, one thing that is true in virtually all cases of sexual predation (think Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein) is that there is a pattern of behavior, and usually several other women stepping forward. This trait was conspicuously absent until now....

    The undocumented population in the United States could be twice as large as the most commonly-used estimate, according to a research study published Friday in the scientific journal Plos One. The paper, led by Mohammad M. Fazel-Zarandi, a researcher at Yale and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, estimates there are 22.1 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Fazel-Zarandi's study compared inflows and outflows of immigrants as well as demographic data. According to the report, the number of undocumented immigrants could be as low as 16.5 million, or as high as 29.1 million. “We combined these data using a demographic model...
