Here below is a section from Cortez’s Green New Deal document.  Written by a true Socialist mind, with less sense than a grade school child.   To sell it; she sounds like a time-share sales person.  It isn’t an expense, it is a “MASSIVE” (HER WORDS) INVESTMENT”; an investment WE would make.   Not going to calling funds gobbling a tax……… nope, an investment.

US Senate Targets Those Boycotting Israel; 77 Senators Voted To Throw Away The First Amendment; 23 Voted To Protect

We need more boycott, divestment and sanctions, not less.

In NAACP vs. Claiborne Hardware Co., it was determined that boycott is protected under the first amendment of the US Constitution:The nonviolent elements of petitioners’ activities are entitled to the protection of the First Amendment… Through exercise of their First Amendment rights of speech, assembly, association, and petition, rather than through riot or revolution, petitioners sought to bring about political, social, and economic change… While States have broad power to regulate economic activities, there is no comparable right to prohibit peaceful political activity such as that found in the boycott in this case.https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2018/10/17/naacp-v-claiborne-hardware-co-boycott-protected-under-first-amendment-of-the-us-constitution/

It’s A Con To Talk About The Border-Wall When Trump Admin Gives Out Over 3000 Permanent Resident Cards Per Day; Over 1 Million Per Year, And A Wall Can Be Tunneled Under Anyway

Mining Awareness +

Illegals can tunnel under a wall, but the approximately 1 million per year of legal permanent resident immigrants don’t have to bother to tunnel under. The Trump Admin gave out over 3,000 immigrant legal permanent resident “Green” cards PER DAY in 2017; Over 1.1 Million total in 2017.

To put this in context, Dallas, Texas is the 9th largest city in the United States and has a population of 1,341,075.

Greencards easily turn into citizenship and so the insane numbers of new US citizens per year will continue, or again worsen, if nothing is changed. Each new citizen dilutes democracy, too, because each vote is of less value.

Even if a wall were effective, it is futile with such huge numbers being let in legally. The USA is already filled up with Americans, many of whom have no right to return to their place of origin.

OUTRAGE: Democrats Remove “So Help Me God” From Key Congressional Oath

Democrats on The House Committee on Natural Resources have made a controversial proposal to remove the words “So Help Me God” from a key congressional oath.

According to Fox News, “a key committee in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives is moving to eliminate the words “so help you God” from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week, according to a draft obtained exclusively by Fox.”

VOTE NOW: Should Nancy Pelosi be removed from office?

The new Oath would read “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? [so help you God],” with the ending of the oath in blocks removed.

Per reports, the committee will vote on the decision to remove the wording from the rules this week. The change would take place immediately if passed.

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming criticized the move to remove the phrasing from the committee’s rules in a statement to Fox News.

First, the Democrats booed God out of their party. Now they have kicked him out of the oath. It is now utterly impossible for a Christian in good conscience to vote for a Democrat. https://t.co/Mm7YRpGcPi

— Bryan Fischer (@BryanJFischer) January 29, 2019

“It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority,” she said.

Adding, “They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”

Fox also Noted:

The proposed rules change was not the first time Democrats have sought to strike references to “God” in official party documents. In 2012, the floor of the Democratic National Convention erupted over a sudden move to restore to the platform a reference to “God” and recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — after heavy criticism from Republicans for initially omitting them. Democrats, though, were hardly in agreement over the reversal.

What are your thoughts on the attempt to remove the language [so help you God] from the committees oath? Let us know in the comment section below.

The Art Of The Deal?

The Lone Cactus

Donald Trump came before the American public the other night with a deal he was proposing for Democrats to re-open the government. On the surface it says a lot…and it shows why he’s the ultimate dealmaker.

Let’s take a quick look at what he said. He wants to get $5.7 billion for the wall…or fence…or added border protection in the form of a barrier along the southern border. That’s been his line in the sand all along. He is giving over 700,000 DACA kids a three year reprieve in hopes Congress can get their problem solved in that time. He’s also giving those that moved to the United States temporarily when natural disasters hit their homeland another three years to live here without the threat of deportation.

He promised $800 million in humanitarian assistance to help those in need along the southern border…most likely those folks in the caravan from…

Kykotsmovi, Ariz. – On behalf of the Hopi Tribe, we urge you to work with Congressional leadership to immediately end the partial government shutdown. This shutdown violates the trust obligations of the United States government to our Hopi-Tewa people.

Agencies such as the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Indian Health Service and other federal agencies that provide critical government services to our Hopi-Tewa people are caught up in unrelated politics over funding for a southern border wall. As the unnecessary and heedless shutdown drags on day to day, the well-being of our Hopi-Tewa people hangs in the balance.

Trump warns Nancy Pelosi to ‘be careful’ after Democrats signal they won’t accept his shutdown offer

President Donald Trump lit into Democrats — and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in particular — in a Sunday tweetstorm in which he appeared to threaten to increase deportations of undocumented immigrants living in the United States and defended his proposal to end the partial government shutdown.

That offer, which Trump presented Saturday in a White House address, included giving about 1 million immigrants a three-year protection from deportation in exchange for $5.7 billion in funding for a wall along the U.S. southern border. Those immigrants include 700,000 who were brought to the country illegally as children and remain protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and 300,000 who fled their countries and are facing the expiration of their “temporary protected status.”

While Republicans praised the proposal and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pledged to bring it before the full Senate for a vote this week, Democrats panned the deal because it did not ensure permanent protections for those two vulnerable populations and funded a border wall they say is unnecessary. Additionally, some on the far-right complained that the deal amounted to “amnesty” for those 1 million immigrants.

Pelosi said in a Saturday statement that the proposal was “a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives.”

“It is unlikely that any one of these provisions alone would pass the House, and taken together, they are a nonstarter,” she said. “For one thing, this proposal does not include the permanent solution for the Dreamers and TPS recipients that our country needs and supports.”

Nearly 800,000 federal workers are affected by the partial government shutdown, which has gone on for nearly a month and is the longest in U.S. history, with many working without pay or furloughed from their jobs. Federal contractors, not included in that number, are losing about $200 million a day.

Trump also tweeted about his upcoming State of the Union address, which Pelosi suggested he delay or submit in writing on its originally agreed-upon date next week because of security concerns related to the partial government shutdown.

After Pelosi sent Trump a letter last week urging the delay, the president pulled the plug on a military plane that was set to take her and other members of Congress to visit troops in Afghanistan. Trump said lawmakers should remain in Washington in order to negotiate an end to the government shutdown.

On Sunday morning, Trump wrote, “Nancy, I am still thinking about the State of the Union speech, there are so many options — including doing it as per your written offer (made during the Shutdown, security is no problem), and my written acceptance. While a contract is a contract, I’ll get back to you soon!”

Deep State Cover-up of Missing $21 Trillion Deeply Disturbing – Dr. Mark Skidmore

Pelosi’s Latest Gaffe

The Lone Cactus

It didn’t take long for Nancy Pelosi to open mouth and insert foot. The new Speaker of the House did so by letter this time around, suggesting that Donald Trump either delay the scheduled January 29th State Of The Union Address to Congress because of the partial government shutdown, or give it from the Oval Office, or better yet (in her eyes) just write it out and send it on over.

It was quickly rebuffed by members of both the House and Senate on both sides of the aisle, and the thought that Pelosi had that because of the government shutdown, that they couldn’t provide “enough security” was even walked back by Pelosi herself, almost as soon as she said it.

Why do I get the feeling Nancy Pelosi is like the old woman that has a gaggle of other old women at her house sitting around the living room…

And the answer is….nope.

Well, that’s the long and the short of it. I think Americans get used to stuff happening in their lives pretty darn quickly, and they end up accepting it maybe a little too quickly. That’s the way it is in the government shutdown department.

When the government shut down during Bill Clinton’s administration, public approval of both Congress and Clinton dropped substantially. When the government shut down during Obama’s term, both took a hit, but Congress took almost three times the hit that Obama took. That was because he blamed the Republicans in Congress for the shut down. It didn’t hurt them in the elections however.

Well, the latest results are in. While Donald Trump’s numbers are down about 2%, Congress’ numbers are actually up about 2%. That’s primarily because Democrats are happy that they retook the House of Representatives, and it really has nothing to…

What Trump Just Wrecked by Canceling Pelosi’s Trip to Afghanistan

What Trump Just Wrecked by Canceling Pelosi’s Trip to Afghanistan
Erin Banco, Sam Stein, Lachlan Markay01.17.19 5:11 PM ET
5-7 minutes

For more than three weeks, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her staff had quietly planned an international trip to Brussels and Afghanistan to check in on America’s longest war. Like most congressional delegations—“CODELs”—it was time-consuming work, involving coordination between numerous agencies, stakeholders, and international officials along with extra security briefings because of the danger of the destination.

Pelosi’s chief of staff worked with a liaison from the U.S. Air Force who was the lead in setting up travel arrangements and the itinerary for the trip. Senior officials at the Pentagon also had been read in on the speaker’s plans, especially those regarding her visit to war-torn Afghanistan, where extra security was needed for her time in Kabul. Two senior officials on the ground in Afghanistan said they received the itinerary for the trip, as they do other congressional trips, weeks in advance and held it close to the chest. Fellow members of Congress made similar accommodations as they prepared to accompany the Speaker on the CODEL.

And then, with minutes to go before they departed, President Trump pulled the plug.

“I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” Trump wrote in a letter to Pelosi. “We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over.”

“Obviously, if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative,” Trump wrote.

Trump’s stated reason in cancelling the CODEL was the fact that the government remains shut down. But the more obvious explanation was that the president had been searching for a way to fire back at the speaker after she had informed him that his State of the Union address would be postponed until a resolution on the shutdown was reached.

Left unappreciated by the back and forth was just how impulsive the president’s swift response truly was.

White House officials told CNN that Trump had coordinated with the Department of Defense about the decision to prohibit the use of military aircraft for Pelosi. But as of the time of this publication, staffers in the Pentagon were furiously scrambling to gather information about the cancellation.

“We’re still gathering information just like you,” one Pentagon official told The Daily Beast. “We are trying to figure out what is going on.” One other source inside the Pentagon said that the White House had not coordinated with senior officials in Kabul about the cancellation, either.

The White House did not respond to The Daily Beast’s question on whether or not the president or his team directly contacted the Defense Department and the Air Force about restricting Pelosi or her team’s use of military aircraft, prior to issuing the White House announcement Thursday afternoon. But the president’s team appeared prepared for the moment in other ways.

Within an hour of the White House’s announcement, the Trump campaign was already fundraising off of the tit-for-tat. The Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising account for the campaign and the Republican National Committee, blasted out an email with the subject line “I’m disinvited?”

“Democrats have illegitimately ‘disinvited’ me from making my scheduled and VERY important State of the Union Address,” the email complained. “Americans DEMAND the truth, so we need to make a CLEAR STATEMENT and raise $1,OOO,OOO by Midnight TONIGHT to show your support for Border Security (the REAL security concern).”

Pelosi’s trip was to come during a particularly sensitive geopolitical moment. The Speaker was to stop in Brussels to meet with top NATO commanders amid Trump’s continued criticism of the transcontinental alliance. And she was to visit Afghanistan amid news that the president would significantly drawback U.S. troops from the ground, two source with the U.S. Marines in Kabul said.

Trump is set to roll back close to half of all U.S. troops in Afghanistan, dealing a significant blow to the progress the U.S. has made over the last six months to help broker peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban, those same sources said. The administration appointed Zalmay Khalilzad as a U.S. envoy to Afghanistan in September to work solely on negotiations between the two sides.

Troops on the ground viewed the Pelosi trip as a chance to gain an inroad with someone, especially the highest ranking member of the House, in the U.S. government who could see the need to keep U.S. troops in the country. The announcement of the drawback has significantly lowered morale among officials and soldiers.

And Pelosi’s team, too, said it wanted a chance to visit the troops in Afghanistan—where Trump has never been—to understand exactly what was happening on the ground.

“The purpose of the trip was to express appreciation and thanks to our men and women in uniform for their service and dedication, and to obtain critical national security and intelligence briefings from those on the front lines,” Drew Hammill, spokesman for Speaker Pelosi, said.

Meanwhile, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and other Trump officials such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are supposed to travel to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week.

Trump Abruptly Cancels Pelosi’s Overseas Trip Just ONE HOUR Before She Was Supposed To Leave

ilovemyfreedom.org

Moments ago, President Trump wrote a scathing letter to Speaker Pelosi in which he canceled her overseas trip to Brussels and other foreign countries. According to reports, her flight was supposed to leave ONE HOUR before Trump blasted out this letter.

“I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” Mr Trump said his letter.

SPECIAL OFFER: Get Your “Build The Wall” Coin For 50% And We’ll Send Nancy Pelosi A Foam Brick!

According to Fox News, the trip cancellation was announced just an hour before the Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives was scheduled to leave on Thursday afternoon.

“Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed,” Trump wrote. “We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over.”

“In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” the president wrote. “I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security movement to end the Shutdown.”

In conclusion, Trump told Pelosi that she could FLY COMMERCIAL if she still wants to go on her trip!

“Obviously if you would like to make your journey by flying commercial, that would certainly be your prerogative”, Trump added.

Here is the letter in full:

As expected, Twitter EXPLODED:

Full text: Pelosi letter to Trump asking to reschedule State of the Union

politico.com
The full text of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 16, 2018, letter to President Donald Trump asking him to reschedule his upcoming State of the Union address or to deliver it in writing:

Dear Mr. President:

On January 3rd, it was my privilege as Speaker to invite you to deliver the State of the Union address on January 29th. The Constitution calls for the President to “from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union.” During the 19th Century and up until the presidency of Woodrow Wilson, these annual State of the Union messages were delivered to Congress in writing. And since the start of modern budgeting in Fiscal Year 1977, a State of the Union address has never been delivered during a government shutdown.

In September 2018, Secretary Nielsen designated State of the Union Addresses as National Special Security Events (NSSEs), recognizing the need for “the full resources of the Federal Government to be brought to bear” to ensure the security of these events. The extraordinary demands presented by NSSEs require weeks of detailed planning with dozens of agencies working together to prepare for the safety of all participants.

The U.S. Secret Service was designated as the lead federal agency responsible for coordinating, planning, exercising, and implementing security for National Special Security Events by Public Law 106-544, December 19, 2000. However, both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security have not been funded for 26 days now — with critical departments hamstrung by furloughs.

Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

NANCY PELOSI

Speaker of the House

Breaking! Conservation Groups File New Lawsuit Against The Trump Administration For Failing To Protect Giraffes – World Animal News

By WAN –
December 6, 2018

Conservation groups have sued the Trump administration for failing to consider protections for Africa’s rapidly dwindling giraffe population under the Endangered Species Act.
Yesterday’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., comes weeks after the International Union for the Conservation of Nature updated its assessment of Africa’s remaining giraffes, reaffirming that the species is “vulnerable” to extinction, and classifying two subspecies as “critically endangered.”
Filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, Humane Society International, Humane Society of the United States, and Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the suit challenges the refusal of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to accept an April 2017 petition seeking Endangered Species Act protection for giraffes. The agency was required to respond within 90 days, but 19 months have passed without action.
“Giraffes capture our imaginations from childhood on, but many people don’t realize how few are left in the wild,” Tanya Sanerib, international legal director at the Center for Biological Diversity said in a statement. “Instead of throwing these unique animals a lifeline under the Endangered Species Act, Trump officials are twiddling their thumbs. Trump will be to blame if future generations know giraffes only as toys and not the long-necked icons of Africa.”
Fewer than 100,000 giraffes remain in the wild, and the population dropped nearly 40% over the past three decades. The species is gravely imperiled by habitat loss, civil unrest, and illegal hunting for their meat, they are also threatened by the international trade in bone carvings, skins, and trophies.
“The Trump administration would rather allow its rich donors to mount giraffe trophies on their walls than protect giraffes,” said Elly Pepper, deputy director of NRDC’s Wildlife Trade Initiative. “Giraffes are headed toward extinction, in part due to our country’s importation of giraffe parts and trophies. It’s shameful, though unsurprising, that the Interior Department has refused to protect them under the Endangered Species Act.”
On average, the United States reportedly imports more than one giraffe hunting trophy a day, and the country imported more than 21,400 giraffe-bone carvings between 2006 and 2015.
Protection under the Endangered Species Act would help track and curb imports of giraffe bones, trophies, and other parts, and increase funding for conservation efforts in Africa.

Ohio Gov. Kasich: ‘The Lord’ Doesn’t Want Americans to Oppose Migrant Caravan
Anthony Accardi
5-6 minutes

Ohio Gov. John Kasich told CNN Thursday that “the Lord” doesn’t want Americans to build walls and oppose the migrant caravan heading to the United States from Central America.

“We’ve got to start putting ourselves in the shoes of other people,” Kasich told CNN’s Newsroom.

Kasich, the grandson of Catholic immigrants from Eastern Europe who became an Anglican Christian as an adult, said he believes most Americans would welcome the caravan.

We’ve got to start thinking about the consequences that others suffer. And if we have been spared those by the grace of God, let us be appreciative, let us count our blessings, and let us reach out to those who have less. Let’s stop putting up walls around ourselves and not understanding the plight, the trouble, and the problems of others. It is not right. And the Lord doesn’t want it, and our people at their hearts want to reach out to others. Look at what they do in these storms. They go and they rescue people they don’t know. They put them in their homes. They feed them. That’s America. Not all this garbage and this division and yelling and screaming and hatred on all sides.”

But not all Christians agree with the governor’s take on biblical truth.

Kelly Kullberg, author of Finding God at Harvard.

Kelly Kullberg, a Christian Ohioan who is editor and co-author of Finding God at Harvard, leads the new American Association of Evangelicals and has served as a missionary in Guatemala and El Salvador. She said the Bible has a lot to say about nations, but nowhere does it teach nations to open their borders to mass migration.

“While I appreciate Gov. Kasich’s Christian faith and compassion, I would encourage him to reconsider the nature of love and the balanced wisdom of Scripture,” Kullberg told The Ohio Star. “The Bible does not teach open borders, but wise welcome.”

Kullberg said the Bible has four words for “foreigner” in Hebrew. One word indicates those who come lawfully as blessings; the word really means “converts,” like Ruth and Rahab. These foreigners are to be embraced as citizens.

Two other Hebrew words indicate temporary visitors or guest workers, to be treated kindly while passing through.

A fourth word indicates a danger, someone who does not come lawfully to assimilate and bless a nation, and is not to be welcomed. (See Dr. James Hoffmeier’s classic book, The Immigration Crisis).

“Rarely do folks quoting the Bible on immigration ever mention that Nehemiah and Ezra led their nation in the rebuilding of its faith, culture and walls,” Kullberg said. “Or that, in Isaiah 1, God considers it a curse and tragedy when a nation is overrun by foreign influence.”

DHS and ICE record many thousands of crimes against American citizens by people here illegally. And Kullberg believes God is grieved when a nation doesn’t protect its citizens, while remaining open to those who come lawfully as blessings.

“We’re to be stewards and gardeners, using wisdom to grow a beautiful culture,” she said.

Kullberg said she noticed something else about the caravan that Kasich apparently didn’t.

“I don’t agree with the governor that people, such as the young and strong men in these ‘caravans,’ should flee their home nations,” she said. “I love Guatemala and worked there as a missionary with widows and children. When sons leave, they leave behind vulnerable grandparents, women and children. What if we and they put creative effort, wisdom and the curious money behind these marches, into the protection and growth of their local villages and cities?”

“That’s what the Bible teaches us to do. The Gospel and its teaching are to uplift every nation,” she added. “That’s why I went with teams of grad students to help build homes, small businesses, a medical clinic and school in Guatemala, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and Peru.”

Kasich has always been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, both before and after he was elected in 2016. On Wednesday, in an interview with MSNBC, Kasich blamed Trump for the bomb-scare packages that were mailed to 10 prominent Democrats.

Kullberg said she encourages the governor to honor the common sense of Ohioans, and how they voted in 2016.

“I ask him to honor struggling American workers who deserve to not be replaced by cheaper foreign labor,” she said. “He could look into the orchestrated, political nature of much mass migration, who funds it and why.”

She said Kasich would also do well to “brush up on the concept of sovereign nations – and the Book of Nehemiah.”

“The whole counsel of Scripture is the highest love for human beings, and the highest good for cultures and nations.”

Prosecutor Who Questioned Ford Shreds Her Case In Five-Page Memo

Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor who questioned Christine Blasey Ford last week during a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote a five-page memo that was released on Sunday that outlines why she would not bring criminal charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Mitchell’s memo notes nine significant problems with Ford’s testimony and underscores that her case is “even weaker” than a “he said, she said” case.

“A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove,” Mitchell states. “But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them. For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard.”

Here are the nine problems outlined in Mitchell’s memo:

  1. Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of when the alleged assault happened:

In a July 6 text to the Washington Post, she said it happened in the “mid 1980s.”
In her July 30 letter to Senator Feinstein, she said it happened in the “early 80s.”
Her August 7 statement to the polygrapher said that it happened one “high school summer in early 80’s,” but she crossed out the word “early” for reasons she did not explain.
A September 16 Washington Post article reported that Dr. Ford said it happened in the “summer of 1982.”
Similarly, the September 16 article reported that notes from an individual therapy session in 2013 show her describing the assault as occurring in her “late teens.” But she told the Post and the Committee that she was 15 when the assault allegedly occurred. She has not turned over her therapy records for the Committee to review.
While it is common for victims to be uncertain about dates, Dr. Ford failed to explain how she was suddenly able to narrow the timeframe to a particular season and particular year

  1. Dr. Ford has struggled to identify Judge Kavanaugh as the assailant by name:

No name was given in her 2012 marriage therapy notes.
No name was given in her 2013 individual therapy notes.
Dr. Ford’s husband claims to recall that she identified Judge Kavanaugh by name in 2012. At that point, Judge Kavanaugh’s name was widely reported in the press as a potential Supreme Court nominee if Governor Romney won the presidential election.
In any event, it took Dr. Ford over thirty years to name her assailant. Delayed disclosure of abuse is common so this is not dispositive.

  1. When speaking with her husband, Dr. Ford changed her description of the incident to become less specific:

Dr. Ford testified that she told her husband about a “sexual assault” before they were married.
But she told the Washington Post that she informed her husband that she was the victim of “physical abuse” at the beginning of their marriage.
She testified that, both times, she was referring to the same incident.

  1. Dr. Ford has no memory of key details of the night in question—details that could help corroborate her account:

She does not remember who invited her to the party or how she heard about it.
She does not remember how she got to the party.
She does not remember in what house the assault allegedly took place or where that house was located with any specificity.
Perhaps most importantly, she does not remember how she got from the party back to her house.
Her inability to remember this detail raises significant questions.
She told the Washington Post that the party took place near the Columbia Country Club. The Club is more than 7 miles from her childhood home as the crow flies, and she testified that it was a roughly 20-minute drive from her childhood home.
She also agreed for the first time in her testimony that she was driven somewhere that night, either to the party or from the party or both.
Dr. Ford was able to describe hiding in the bathroom, locking the door, and subsequently exiting the house. She also described wanting to make sure that she did not look like she had been attacked.
But she has no memory of who drove her or when. Nor has anyone come forward to identify him or herself as the driver.
Given that this all took place before cell phones, arranging a ride home would not have been easy. Indeed, she stated that she ran out of the house after coming downstairs and did not state that she made a phone call from the house before she did, or that she called anyone else thereafter.
She does, however, remember small, distinct details from the party unrelated to the assault. For example, she testified that she had exactly one beer at the party and was taking no medication at the time of the alleged assault.

  1. Dr. Ford’s account of the alleged assault has not been corroborated by anyone she identified as having attended—including her lifelong friend:

Dr. Ford has named three people other than Judge Kavanaugh who attended the party— Mark Judge, Patrick “PJ” Smyth, and her lifelong friend Leland Keyser (née Ingham). Dr. Ford testified to the Committee that another boy attended the party, but that she could not remember his name. No others have come forward.
All three named eyewitnesses have submitted statements to the Committee denying any memory of the party whatsoever. Most relevantly, in her first statement to the Committee, Ms. Keyser stated through counsel that, “[s]imply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.” In a subsequent statement to the Committee through counsel, Ms. Keyser said that “the simple and unchangeable truth is that she is unable to corroborate [Dr. Ford’s allegations] because she has no recollection of the incident in question.”
Moreover, Dr. Ford testified that her friend Leland, apparently the only other girl at the party, did not follow up with Dr. Ford after the party to ask why she had suddenly disappeared.

  1. Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of the alleged assault:

According to her letter to Senator Feinstein, Dr. Ford heard Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge talking to other partygoers downstairs while she was hiding in the bathroom after the alleged assault. But according to her testimony, she could not hear them talking to anyone.
In her letter, she stated, “I locked the door behind me. Both loudly stumbled down the stairwell, at which point other persons at the house were talking with them.”
Kavanaugh or Mark Judge turned up the music in the bedroom so that the people downstairs could not hear her scream. She testified that, after the incident, she ran into the bathroom, locked the door, and heard them going downstairs. But she maintained that she could not hear their conversation with others when they got downstairs. Instead, she testified that she “assum[ed]” a conversation took place.
Her account of who was at the party has been inconsistent.
According to The Washington Post’s account of her therapy notes, there were four boys in the bedroom in which she was assaulted.
She told the Washington Post that the notes were erroneous because there were four boys at the party, but only two in the bedroom.
In her letter to Senator Feinstein, she said “me and 4 others” were present at the party.
In her testimony, she said there were four boys in addition to Leland Keyser and herself. She could not remember the name of the fourth boy, and no one has come forward.
Dr. Ford listed Patrick “PJ” Smyth as a “bystander” in her statement to the polygrapher and in her July 6 text to the Washington Post, although she testified that it was inaccurate to call him a bystander. She did not list Leland Keyser even though they are good friends. Leland Keyser’s presence should have been more memorable than PJ Smyth’s.

  1. Dr. Ford has struggled to recall important recent events relating to her allegations, and her testimony regarding recent events raises further questions about her memory:

Dr. Ford struggled to remember her interactions with the Washington Post.
Dr. Ford could not remember if she showed a full or partial set of therapy notes to the Washington Post reporter.
She does not remember whether she showed the Post reporter the therapist’s notes or her own summary of those notes. The Washington Post article said that “portions” of her “therapist’s notes” were “provided by Ford and reviewed by” the Post. But in her testimony, Dr. Ford could not recall whether she summarized the notes for the reporter or showed her the actual records.
She does not remember if she actually had a copy of the notes when she texted the Washington Post WhatsApp account on July 6.
Dr. Ford said in her first WhatsApp message to the Post that she “ha[d] therapy notes talking about” the incident when she contacted the Post’s tipline. She testified that she had reviewed her therapy notes before contacting the Post to determine whether the mentioned anything about the alleged incident, but could not remember if she had a copy of those notes, as she said in her WhatsApp message, or merely reviewed them in her therapist’s office.
Dr. Ford refused to provide any of her therapy notes to the Committee.
Dr. Ford’s explanation of why she disclosed her allegations the way she did raises questions.
She claimed originally that she wished for her story to remain confidential, but the person operating the tipline at the Washington Post was the first person other than her therapist or husband to whom she disclosed the identity of her alleged attacker. She testified that she had a “sense of urgency to relay the information to the Senate and the president.” She did not contact the Senate, however, because she claims she “did not know how to do that.” She does not explain why she knew how to contact her Congresswoman but not her Senator.
Dr. Ford could not remember if she was being audio- or video-recorded when she took the polygraph. And she could not remember whether the polygraph occurred the same day as her grandmother’s funeral or the day after her grandmother’s funeral.
It would also have been inappropriate to administer a polygraph to someone who was grieving.

  1. Dr. Ford’s description of the psychological impact of the event raises questions:

She maintains that she suffers from anxiety, claustrophobia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The date of the hearing was delayed because the Committee was informed that her symptoms prevent her from flying. But she agreed during her testimony that she flies “fairly frequently for [her] hobbies and … work.” She flies to the mid-Atlantic at least once a year to visit her family. She has flown to Hawaii, French Polynesia, and Costa Rica. She also flew to Washington, D.C. for the hearing.
Note too that her attorneys refused a private hearing or interview. Dr. Ford testified that she was not “clear” on whether investigators were willing to travel to California to interview her. It therefore is not clear that her attorneys ever communicated Chairman Grassley’s offer to send investigators to meet her in California or wherever she wanted to meet to conduct the interview.
She alleges that she struggled academically in college, but she has never made any similar claim about her last two years of high school.
It is significant that she used the word “contributed” when she described the psychological impact of the incident to the Washington Post. Use of the word “contributed” rather than “caused” suggests that other life events may have contributed to her symptoms. And when questioned on that point, she said that she could think of “nothing as striking as” the alleged assault.

  1. The activities of congressional Democrats and Dr. Ford’s attorneys likely affected Dr. Ford’s account:

WOW: Prosecutor Who Questioned Christine Ford Tears Apart Her Case With Brutal 5-Page Memo

ilovemyfreedom.org
Martin
5-7 minutes

The Arizona sex crimes prosecutor who questioned Christine Blasey Ford last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee has released her final report, and it is not good for Democrats.

As noted by The Daily Wire, Rachel Mitchell not only wrote in a brutal 5-page memo that she would not bring any charges against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, she also tore apart Ford’s flimsy allegations. Ford alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her almost 40 years ago. Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegations.

Mitchell’s memo details nine major issues with Ford’s testimony and claims, and writes that her allegations are so problematic and shaky that it would be next-to-impossible to ever bring her case before a judge in court.

Here’s what Mitchell writes:

“A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them. For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard.”

Below are the nine problems Mitchell detailed in her memo:

  1. Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of when the alleged assault happened.

Mitchell writes that Ford’s timeline is very shaky, noting that she told the media, Sen. Diane Feinstein, and the Committee three different dates for when the alleged assault took place.

  1. Dr. Ford has struggled to identify Judge Kavanaugh as the assailant by name.

The Arizona prosecutor details how Ford never mentioned Kavanaugh by name in her 2012 marriage therapy notes, her 2013 individual therapy notes, and how there’s no proof that she named Kavanaugh when she told her husband around 2012 about the alleged assault.

  1. When speaking with her husband, Dr. Ford changed her description of the incident to become less specific:

Dr. Ford testified that she told her husband about a “sexual assault” before they were married.
But she told the Washington Post that she informed her husband that she was the victim of “physical abuse” at the beginning of their marriage.
She testified that, both times, she was referring to the same incident.

  1. Dr. Ford has no memory of key details of the night in question—details that could help corroborate her account.

Mitchell writes that Ford has no memory of who invited her to the party, how she heard about it, how she got to the alleged party, what house the assault allegedly took place at, where that house is located, or how she got from the party back to her home.

  1. Dr. Ford’s account of the alleged assault has not been corroborated by anyone she identified as having attended—including her lifelong friend.

The Arizona prosecutor notes that the three witnesses who Ford claims attended the party have told investigators that they never witnessed what Ford has alleged.

  1. Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of the alleged assault.

Mitchell explains that Ford has changed her story numerous times about what happened, telling the media, Feinstein, and the Committee a different story each time. She also writes that Fords account of who was at the alleged party has been inconsistent.

  1. Dr. Ford has struggled to recall important recent events relating to her allegations, and her testimony regarding recent events raises further questions about her memory.

Ford cannot remember what she told The Washington Post about the attack and what information she actually gave to the outlet.

Dr. Ford refused to provide any of her therapy notes to the Committee.
Dr. Ford’s explanation of why she disclosed her allegations the way she did raises questions.

  1. Dr. Ford’s description of the psychological impact of the event raises questions.

Ford testified that she was given a polygraph examine in August in the conference room of a motel around the same time of her grandmother’s funeral. Mitchell writes that Ford doesn’t know who paid for the examine and that she should not have been given the examine while grieving. Ford was also only asked two pathetic questions.

  1. The activities of congressional Democrats and Dr. Ford’s attorneys likely affected Dr. Ford’s account.

Mitchell concludes by writing that Democrats and the media likely influenced Ford to change her story to better fit the narrative because there is hardly any evidence to support her allegations.

Mitchell’s report is brutal, factually sound, and tears apart all of Ford’s flimsy claims.

Sen. Tom Cotton Gives Dianne Feinstein Some REALLY Bad News

Notsofeinstein, Ford’s lawyer, Sheila Jackasson Lee, and the rest of the low-life Democrat Marxist hacks should be held personally liable for slandering Mr. Kavanaugh and irreparably damaging his family. How dare they?! Interestingly, the elected body politic, in this case, is comprised of mostly attorneys who are nothing short of a lynch-mob. Those dogs believe innocence must be proven, not guilt, and I truly believe they revel in the destruction of checks and balances in favor of chaos. I really hope a legal tsunami wipes them from the positions they’ve made toxic through lies, deceit, smear campaigns, payoffs, and holier-than-thou attitudes.
