The Brett Kavanaugh nomination hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee are a sad, sickening saga that has been repeated too often recently. The allegation has been made by Christine Blasey Ford, a reputable female professor, that during their high school years, Kavanaugh groped her to the extent she thought she was going to be raped or killed. Of course, she threw that grenade from the tall weeds of anonymity when she discovered Kavanaugh was on Trump’s short list to the Supreme Court. That forced her to get involved, we are told.
Everyone must keep in mind that there is a miniscule possibility that her accusations are true just as there is small chance that there are little green men on Mars.
I have strong feelings about such issues and want justice to prevail. I’m not interested in some leftwing or rightwing agenda. I wish to go on record as saying that I have a wife, three daughters, and too many granddaughters and great-granddaughters to count, so I am very pro-female. I’ve been called a purist, a prude, and even a Puritan. None are true but since age 15, I have kept my hands to myself and strictly followed the “Billy Graham and Jerry Falwell rule” never to be alone with an unrelated woman.
A false accusation can destroy a man’s family, finances, and future. All sexual assaults should be seriously looked at and any rapist should be executed as in bygone years and any false accuser should be branded with an L on her forehead and horse-whipped out of town (figuratively).
Only fools or fanatics or feminists (but then I repeat myself) say that all female sexual accusations against men should be believed. Period. Under those circumstances then Bill Clinton is a rapist after all. Will feminists demand accountability from him and Hillary for their shameful treatment of Bill’s accusers?
Concerning automatically believing all female accusers, comedian and writer Kurt Metzger factiously said, “ALL women are as reliable as my bible! A book that, much like a women, is incapable of lying!”
But then anyone is capable of lying.
Must I drag up the Duke Lacrosse incident (three athletes were falsely accused of raping a black stripper), the University of Virginia case (seven fraternity brothers were falsely accused of gang-raping a female student), and the Tawana Brawley case (four white men were falsely accused of raping a teenage black girl). I could go on and on but will not. Just realize that there are numerous horrific false charges that have destroyed innocent people. It is shocking that Liberals out there don’t care about justice, truth, honesty, and fairness.
According to female fascist progressives, all the above men, found innocent, are really guilty because three females said so.
The young men falsely charged will have to live with the stigma all their lives. The attorneys’ fees, the lost jobs, the lost tuition, the loss of credit hours, the stress—how are those losses to be compensated?
Some have said that false rape charges are rare; however, studies prove they are rather frequent. The Rumney study (2006) suggests that between 10-50% of rape allegations are false. The Kanin study (1994) arrived at an estimate of 40%. Other studies such as Stewart (1981) have arrived at figures as high as 90% that were false.
The FBI reports that between 4,400 and 5,100 allegations of rape every year were deemed false.
Please understand that a false rape accusation is a major attack upon a man for which few women are sentenced after the discovery of the false charge. The man usually loses his reputation, his job, friends, and often his family—yet was totally innocent. Plus, if found guilty when he is in fact innocent, he spends many years in prison where he is often raped!
If an innocent man is accused but does not go to prison, he must live with the stigma for a lifetime; it becomes a sentence without a conviction. Whether Kavanaugh is confirmed or not, where does he go to get his reputation back?
Most false accusations cause the woman no problem unless she does it a few times then usually gets a slap on the wrist. Maybe a large brand on their forehead might be a good warning for others who are loose and free with their lips. Maybe the L should be real!
Some common sense definitions are necessary regarding this accusation. Rape is having sex with a woman while she screams for help. No scream, no rape according to Deuteronomy 22:23-24. Ford says Kavanaugh held his hand over her mouth so did she scream for help when his hand was elsewhere? After all, it was in a bedroom of a house; surely, one of the other 4 teens could have heard him scream when she bit his hand. Did she bite his hand? Poke him in the eye? Women know instinctively how to protect their honor: screaming, shouting, slapping, spitting, slugging, and stabbing with a finger, pencil, or hat pin. Since she did not cry out or stab him, I will not believe her without a film of the event.
Moreover, Matthew 18:16 clearly commands that there must be at least two witnesses to validate a charge against a person. This is a repeat of Old Testament law. Ford has no witnesses. The other man who was allegedly there, Mark Judge said, “It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way.” This week, another teen that was supposed to be there Patrick J. Smyth said the incident did not happen. That should settle it; now let’s all go home, pull down the shades, and get some sleep.
Well, we all know about Potiphar’s wife who falsely reported to her husband that Joseph tried to rape her. She had tried in vain to get Joseph into her bed, then she sought to characterize him as rapist to her husband. In that, she succeeded. No doubt she felt resentful because she felt repelled and reproved by Joseph’s virtue. She accused him to his peers who no doubt resented Joseph’s high esteem from his master.
Not everyone who has a spotless conscience can keep a spotless name if a conniving woman is determined to smear him. It is no new thing for the best of men to be falsely accused of the worst of crimes by those who themselves are the worst of criminals.
Joseph, although totally innocent, was sent to prison for many years; but after a difficult time he became the number two man in Egypt, second only to Pharaoh!
Lessons to be learned are many. Brett Kavanaugh should not have been drinking let alone been drunk if he was there. And why was a 15-year-old girl at such a party? Why did she go to a bedroom with two drunk or sober boys? Was she drinking? Had she been sexually promiscuous?
Has she or her Washington-based attorney received any substantial sums of money from any person or group? Why did she wait so long to make the charges? Why make the charges anonymously? And why wait until this time to make her charges? Has she supported radical leftwing causes other than the Democrat Party, ActBlue (partly funded by George Soros) and the presidential bid of Bernie Sanders?
Why should she be more credible than the judge who has a lifetime of impeccable service?
Ford said the other boy jumped on top of Brett putting considerable weight on her and the two boys “scrapped with each other.” Wait, in middle of an attempted rape, with hormones raging, Brett allegedly interrupted his rape to tussle with a friend! Doesn’t pass the smell test.
USA Today reported that “more than 200 former students of the school signed a letter in support of Ford,” but the paper did not reveal that many of those people were at the school long after she was there. The article did not mention that of 65 female high school contemporaries of Kavanaugh’s signed a letter vouching for his integrity. Plus all the female law clerks that worked for the judge have vouched for his integrity and character.
A horrific thought: if Dr. Ford is telling the truth and can convince the committee of that then a sexual groper will return to the Circuit Court!
Come on, let’s have some transparency and accountability. Being a woman is not, absolutely not, enough reason to accept her word over Kavanaugh’s.
Senator Orrin Hatch suggested that maybe it is simply that Christine Blasey Ford, in her recollections, must be “mixed up.” It is reported that she passed a polygraph test given by “a former FBI agent” but I want to know more about that.
Even if she passed the polygraph test, that does not prove her accusations valid. She may honestly believe what she is saying is reality when it is not.
I’ve had some experience with being deceived. My daughter and I were alone one afternoon when I heard something break. I yelled, “Tammy, what happened?” What had happened was my small daughter broke an expensive vase I had purchased in Athens, Greece. She pretended she did not know what happened. “It just fell off the table,” she said. I can still see her standing in the door of my office with guilt all over her face. Like most people, she wanted to blame others instead of taking the responsibility. I have told that story all over the world, but it didn’t happen that way. It wasn’t Tammy; it was Suzan. Suzan is adamant that it was her not her younger sister who was the culprit.
However, I can clearly see Tammy in my doorway. I could pass a polygraph test; but it would still not make Tammy guilty or Suzan innocent. I have been wrong about that vase for 35 years until I was proved wrong. Doesn’t matter what a test might show. Whatever the test results, “It Ain’t Necessarily So!”
Same with Judge Kavanaugh.
The Senators should listen to Dr. Ford politely then vote to recommend to the full Senate that he be the ninth justice on the U. S. Supreme Court.
Even with the miniscule possibility that Kavanaugh is guilty which I admit could be true since everyone involved is human, he should still be on the highest court. After all, isn’t redemption possible anymore? Can’t a man see the error of his evil ways and change? Yes, but we are told that would mean we would have a liar on the U.S. Supreme Court! Big deal. You think the other eight are innocent?
Let’s stop the charade. Tammy didn’t do it; neither did Brett.
