Driven a Fraud Lately?

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, kavanaugh, supreme court, sexual, attack, confirmation, lawyer

No matter what your politics, you have to salute the strength and courage of a woman who, despite the formidable forces against her and the risk to her reputation, agrees to give testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee reviewing the wildly contentious Kavanaugh matter.

Of course, we're not referring to Christine Blasey Ford, whom we sympathetically believe to have significant psychological issues which are being cruelly exploited by the Left. Rather, we're talking about Dr. Ford's lifetime friend, Leland Ingham Keyser, who was recently named as a witness present at the infamous party at which an attack may or may not have occurred.

In written testimony which carries a criminal penalty if not true, Ms. Keyser said she "does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with or without Dr. Ford."

It's worth noting that, besides being Dr. Ford's friend, Ms. Keyser is a longtime Democrat who presumably would be happy to torpedo Kavanaugh if it could be done without committing perjury. Although it's certainly possible that she's simply an honorable person who puts doing the right thing above politics. In either event, we predict she's going to need to find a whole new circle of friends soon - and probably hire security to ensure her personal safety.

This makes a total of four "witnesses" named by Dr. Ford, all of whom say the incident never happened.

In legal terms, we believe this entire matter has more than met the definition of farce majeure and needs to be wrapped up as soon as possible, with justice for Judge Kavanaugh and an extended and hopefully beneficial stay at Happy Acres for his accuser.

BREAKING: UPCHUCK UPDATE

No doubt because Christine Blasey Ford's story has fallen apart, a NEW "victim" of Kavanaugh has suddenly come forth with recovered memories which even she admits are pretty hazy based on being blind drunk at the time of the alleged incident.

According to reports, Deborah Ramirez (a Democrat- surprise!) wasn't sure who waggled a weenie in her direction at a party in a Yale dorm room 35 years ago when she was incoherent, but after consulting with a lawyer for a week, she's miraculously "remembered" that it was 18-year-old Long Dong Kavanaugh.

Bullshit.

This time, the "victim" says there was a roomful of witnesses. The problem? They all say that it never happened. So we're going to go out on a limb here and say that, while we think Dr. Ford likely has mental problems, Ramirez sounds like an opportunistic liar.

Enough. The vote on Kavanaugh should take place today, he should be sworn in by week's end, and afterwards no one nominated for any position by a Democrat should be approved for anything ever again. 

This whole thing has gone way beyond the pail. And no, we didn't spell "pale" wrong - we meant that the perfidy of the Leftists makes us puke so violently that it doesn't all hit the bucket.

I'd say the Katz lady has sung. Stick a Ford in it, this story's done...

Velveeta Processed Cheese Food said...

It really bothers me that everyone keeps referring to this Ford as "Dr." Ford. According to the AP Stylebook, that title is usually reserved for MDs, and only then when it's relevant; for example, "Dr. Joe Smoe says he's cured herpes," but not in other contexts; for example, "School Board Present Joe Smoe says herpes are out of control at More Science High School."

At this hour, the Ramirez allegations have already fallen apart. We'll see what tomorrow brings. It's going to be a long week.

Bonus points for anybody who gets the "More Science High School" reference.

Does anyone remember the term 'one trick pony'? When I was younger, it referred to a person who had only one minor qualification. I believe this applies to Ms Ford.

Stilton,
Outstanding!
You hit a grand slam!

Is it just me.
Or am I the only one who thinks Christine Blasey Ford, looks like Gary Busey?

Take care, be safe.

Breaking Broken News!!

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/23/us/politics/brett-kavanaugh-christine-blasey-ford-testify.html

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.

I'll tell ya...after watching Democrats in action over the past couple of years. I don't know if I could ever be more certain that I made the right decision when I did my #WalkAway in 2010.

@ Velveeta: If she has a PhD, she's entitled to be addressed as "Dr" .

Where's a dead parrot when you REALLY need one? The fjords are particularly beautiful this time of year. (BTW, I propose that we start referring to her as Dr. Fjord.)

Fish Out of Water said...

Am both angered, dismayed and furious at what is being allowed to happen.

Angered as I see this circus as playing into the hands of the neo-fascists in the democratic party who want to delay and obstruct until they get their Senate & House majorities back. And it may be working. There was an article I saw last night abt a poll taken that shows more people are now less comfortable with the Trump SCOTUS nominee. So much for the 'wisdom' of the masses.

But there is the other side. All this has shown why there is a need to not just drain the swamp, but pave it over. And if handled well enough, al this is giving the neo-fascists and their enemedia enablers enough rope to hang themselves and I dearly hope energizes enough voters in November to throw some of them out 0f office.

Last, for those who can access it, there is an excellent OpEd in today's WSJ titled;" Why the Left is Consumed with Hate"

Laura D said...

Please don't insult Norway by calling that lying $*#&@ anything that has to do with the Fjords (which really are beautiful!).

However, we *could* call her "Dr. F-ord." "Ord" is Norwegian for "word," so we would then be calling her the F-word.

AmyH said...

Supposedly she remembers, in her drunken stupor, that classmates of his yelled down the hall "Brett Kavenaugh waved his p at..."
Really? They are going to yell full names? More like nicknames or first names. Pathetic.

As you said, Stilt; “Bullshit!”

I was talking to my neighbor down the holler about the case and he said that he would testify if the money was good enough. Said he needs George Soros' phone number.

Ah, how I long for 'Night of the Long Knives'. And moonshine. Can't forget the 'shine.

Blind drunk, but remembers someone pointing a dildo at her and Brett Kavanaugh pointing his penis at her.
Maybe it was just a realistic, penis-shaped dildo named Brett.

Velveeta Processed Cheese Food said...

@Fish: Generally not in news writing, as refereed by "The Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual." I spent 20 years in journalism, and later got a Ph.D. (in a STEM subject), and I wouldn't expect to have that mentioned in an article having nothing to do with my field. Also, the Stylebook forbids repeated use of the title after first mention. Using it, repeatedly, looks like an attempt to give her more credibility, which is why it bothers me.

Bruce Bleu said...

Deb Ramirez says "...and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.” I've been a guy for most of my life, and when I pull up my pants my hips go BACKWARDS because there's something "in the way" of pulling them up... why the hell would I want to put it in the way of my pants rising? I admit that WOMEN might bring the hips forward, but THAT is so they can get their fat ASS into the pants, but not a MAN! (well, lamont insane obama might bring hips forward, but we KNOW why that is.)
VPCF, Wow, I am duly impressed... a Ph.D., and you don't "wave it around" like Turd Kennedy's penis in a Hyannis Port Saloon! (BTW, got MY PhD at Home Depot on the day they had a sale on Post hole Diggers.)

Emmentaler Limburger said...

Why are Feinstein and Schumer not being held in contempt of Congress?! How could there be any plausible deniability when they went so far as to offer a SECOND trumped up (NPI) allegation which IMMEDIATELY self-destructed? There has to be repercussions, or this behavior will become (although I think it already has...) the new "normal".

Edam Wensleydale said...

@Emmentaler: Why hold them in contempt when lampposts are plentiful? :D

Judi King said...

You would think someone with a PHD in psychology would know the difference between "repressed memory" and false memory. This whole thing is over the top phony.

American Cowboy said...

Fish Out of Water said, "If she has a PhD, she's entitled to be addressed as "Dr"."

In the case of Ms. Ford it reminds me of the two cowboys walking past a city office building with a gentleman's name painted on the door, followed by the initials B.S.-M.S.- and PhD.

First cowboy asks the second, "What do you suppose all those letters mean?"

Second cowboy replies, "Well we BOTH know what B.S. is. M.S. must mean More of the Same. And Phd must mean Piled High and Deeper!"

I think that pretty well sums up the Kavanaugh hit job.

Brie Camembert said...

And if Judge John Doe (R) had been proposed as SCOTUS then these self same floosies would have been accusing him of the self same "crimes".
Pay them off in Bolivars and send 'em to Venezuela.

At this point: IF: This isn't shut down, now today. It will act to invalidate all election results from now on until the outbreak of open warfare. Any election could AND WOULD BE overturned simply by hiring a whore to scream RAPE. No proof needed. If Chuck can't find the guts to shut down this communist side show, RIGHT NOW. the only rule left will be rule .308. It's time for the adults to take charge in DC. I wonder if there are any left?--Ray

To paraphrase a certain democrat strategist from the 90's "I wonder how many 20 dollar bills they had to drag through a trailer park to find this Ramirez woman"

TrickyRicky said...

Regarding the excellent cartoon today. If "every woman tells the absolute truth every single time", what about the 65 women who knew Judge Kavanaugh during the times in question and have come out very publicly in his support? Are they not to be believed, and if not why not? I'd like to see someone in the so-called media ask these and the appropriate follow-up questions. Not holding my breath, only my nose at this point. The stench of lying hypocrisy is overwhelming.

Anonymous said...

When I was a freshman in college I met more than a few coeds who loved to have a weenie waved in front of their face. And eagerly "bit" it.

John the Econ said...

So this is now where we've arrived: Accusations of alleged poor personal behavior by drunken teenagers that took place over a third-of-a-century ago based upon repressed memories that cannot place the act or actors at any particular time or place and have been denied by practically everyone who might have even been there are enough to bring the business of state to a complete stop.

And then the accuser, who felt strongly enough about this to send letters to various officials then places all kinds of roadblocks between her and the telling of her story to the people who matter.

This is not to say that we are in favor of having our government lead by entitled former drunken gropey teenagers. I'd love it if we could purge Congress of the likes of any Kennedy, Cory Booker or Keith Ellison. But that's clearly not going to happen.

What we really are seeing here is the full-on weaponization of what the Democrats started over a quarter century ago with Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas: Drive-by character assassination. No evidence or collaboration necessary. Just find someone out of 300-million willing to make an accusation, then add oxygen and fan the flames for the outrage industry. This will work, because no Progressive will ever be made to quantify their accusations to any worthwhile standard. Meanwhile, accusations of poor behavior by Progressives will continue to be denied or just ignored, just as they currently are for Booker, Ellison, or the 66 million people who voted for Hillary Clinton.

This is why the Kavanaugh nomination must go forward. If these tactics are allowed to succeed, we will never see another non-Progressive elected or appointed in our lifetimes.

In the meantime, this all kinda makes me want to run for office. I'm genuinely curious as to what kind of crimes I might have committed when I was 17. They might make my past so interesting that I might wish I'd actually lived it.

Bobo said...

Our “leaders” should hold all goverment personnel to the same standards of ethics, morality and integrity, starting with themselves.

We the people need to demand more accountability of our self-named “betters.” Expulsion from office and prison is needed, not SUMU - Screw Up Move Up mentality. How many in goverment positions, particularly in the House and Senate, have histories of DUI, assault, fraud, domestic violence, corruption, drug abuse, and on and on. Would they be hireable or retained by private sector employers for such behavior?

If a politician’s mouth is moving be assured they’re probably speaking a lie, (Trump excluded, of course, cuz I voted for him.) :-)

Sortahwitte said...

What is the republicans game plan? Have they thought about it? The dims know exactly where they are going and are united in their obstruction, lying about anything and everything, persecution of witnesses, and openly running for president from the committee bench. WTF?

Every day as I see the dims poo flinging antics and the repubs just sitting there, I am so glad I cut my ties to the grand ole party. I will always be a conservative, but those who call themselves repubs are closer to the dims than they are to me.

Out where I live, there aren't too many lamp posts. However, there are almost as many backhoes as there are pickup trucks. Rather than the possibility of a jury, some still use that same tractor accessory to remove the problem. Ten or twelve feet deep is usually enough. Then you fence off about 10 acres above the sight and start running pigs in there.

Fred Ciampi said...

I am a Constitutional Conservative and quite possible a neighbor of Sortahwitte. Same mindset anyhow. Hmmm 24134

Colby Muenster said...

Super cartoon AGAIN, Dr. Jarlsberg, although you may want to consider dropping the "Dr." after this. Your posting about sums up what I believe to be very typical behavior by most Democrats. They are losing their mojo, though. They used to hire much more believable actress/acusers back in the old days. Maybe they can't afford to pay what they used to? Is the DNC that broke? Maybe Shrillary doesn't give enough of a shit about Kavanagh to turn loose of some dirty money?

Really.... "I was totally sloshed at the college party, and think this dude may have waved his dick at me..." is all the better the democrats can find? Pathetic. AT least hire someone who doesn't say they were drunk at the time. maybe the Dems need new writers.

At any rate, yes, this fiasco has gone on way too long. I pray Grassley and McConnell say enough is enough, and schedule a vote for tomorrow.

@Bruce Bleu,
Any dude who has ever accidently zipped his tallywhacker DEFINITELY does not stick it out there when pulling up the pants, even if it's protected by the whitey tighties.

...and lastly, "Don't crush that dwarf! Hand me the pliers!"

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@M. Mitchell Marmel- Well played!

@Velveeta Processed Cheese Food- I think it's okay to call her "doctor," but apparently it's not cool to ask her to play "doctor."

@Unknown- The term applies to a lot of people on the Left. And in fairness, quite a few on the Right.

@Griz Alaska- Now that you mention it, there is a touch of Gary Busey there. Then again, maybe it's just the crazy.

@Fortescue J. Giraffe- I love Firesign Theater truly, deeply, madly.

@Jason Anyone- I have lost all patience with these bastards.

@REM1875- If Kavanaugh is still in contention, the Dems won't stop at only 247 imposters.

@Fritz Brohn- When you're right, you're right.

@SpecOpr8r- You're right. And I say "bring it on!"

@Trevor Vietor- Pshew! Scared me!

@Mike Porter- Yes.

@Fish Out of Water- I believe it's pronounced "Fudd." (grin)

@B.C.- Beautiful plumage!

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Fish Out of Water- I'd like to think the Dems are creating enough rope to hang themselves with, but I just don't have that much faith in the intelligence of the electorate anymore.

@Laura D- You make a good point, and thanks for the language lesson!

@Amy H- That whole "detail" of her story sounds completely bogus.

@Section147- I generally shoot for greater subtlety when expressing myself, but sometimes you just have to use the correct word.

@Fred Ciampi- This latest accuser is a "Soros Senior Fellow," whatever that means (other than that she's on the payroll).

@Anonymous- Now I'm having Firesign Theater flashbacks. And loving them!

@Geoff King- I'm starting to understand why Mike Pence refuses to be in a room alone with a woman other than his wife.

@Velveeta Processed Cheese Food- Good points!

@Bruce Bleu- Good catch on the whole pulling up the pants thing. I have zero doubt that this woman is a liar.

@Emmentaler Limburger- I'd love to see them held in contempt of Congress, though we both know it will never happen.

@Edam Wensleydale- I like your "glass half full" attitude!

@Judi King- Yep.

james daily said...

This slandering will continue until each and every one is sued and have to prove their case in court. Unfortunately, Kavanaugh cannot do this but the hearing might provide relief if just One lie is prosecuted for perjury. Next time this happens, nip it in the bud by immediately filing slander charges and costing them dearly to defend this sheit.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@American Cowboy- By George, I think you've got it!

@Brie Camembert- You're right; whoever gets nominated in the future is going to face these same attacks.

@Anonymous- No question that this would indicate that the system is well and truly broken. The Dems are pushing people to their breaking points.

@Greywuff zfavrr- I'm sure George Soros was able to drag as many bills as possible to pull Ramirez out of the weeds.

@TrickyRicky- I agree. Shouldn't the women testifying in favor of Kavanaugh "be heard?"

@Anonymous- Well, there goes your seat on the Supreme Court.

@John the Econ- Excellent summation of this miserable situation.

@Bobo- I agree that these posturing politicians should be held to the same moral standards they're currently pretending to care about. In a country as big as ours, is it really impossible to find exemplary people to work in Washington - or is it such a cesspool that only turds can really thrive there anymore?

@Sortahwitte- I would give the stink eye to anyone who accused me of being a Republican. I embrace being a Conservative openly and proudly. But screw the GOP (to put it bluntly). Also, thanks for the interesting horticultural instruction (grin).

@Fred Ciampi- Do you have a neighbor who suddenly fenced off 10 acres...?

@ringgo1- Just wait right here with Artie Choke until Deputy Dan brings you your points.

@Sortahwitte- Oorah!

@Colby Muenster- The painful truth is that Kavanaugh's accusers don't even need to be convincing. They just need to be trotted out long enough for more "investigations" to go on and stall Kavanaugh's confirmation until after the mid-terms. Which is starting to look like a likelihood.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@James Daily- If Kavanaugh is not confirmed, then I'd definitely like to see the defamation lawsuits filed.

Again President Trump is right when he commented to the effect that libel/slander laws, especially regarding public figures, need to be updated.

Nonetheless, there's a good chance the "actual malice" requirement in the Times v Sullivan decision has been met by several of the media reporting these accusations.

Anonymous said...

I see two reasons for all of this crap.
1. To postpone the vote, or actually stop the confirmation, and
2. It keeps the "news" away from the sealed indictments that are slowly being unsealed, as well as the executive orders being released.

This is what should happen: https://yournewswire.com/woman-damages-false-rape-accusation/

A woman who waited thirty years to accuse an Army Colonel of sexually assaulting her while they were Cadets was ordered to pay a total of $8.4 million in damages after the false accusation destroyed his reputation and military career.
The case, the details of which bear a striking similarity to the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, provides a precedent should his accusers be found to have made false claims against him.

While here, I was thinking those four accused witnesses could also file defamation suits as it will probably affect Their careers. Four different suits please

JustaJeepGuy said...

I read in the local paper (the Colorado Springs Gazette) today that this Ramirez woman (currently living in Colorado) has an attorney who used to be a prosecutor in Boulder County, Colorado. The attorney was sent to her by Colorado's US Senator Michael Bennet. Note that the attorney and the Senator are both Demo_Rats from Colorado. I still have no idea how or when Colorado was invaded by all these Demo_Rats. I don't vote for Demo_Rats.

JustaJeepGuy said...

Oh, I also wanted to say that President Trump needs to start nominating anyone and everyone whom the Demo_Rats hate for any position whatsoever. The more the Demo_Rats hate 'em, the better I like 'em! The Demo_Rats can have a 6-year-long hissy fit and who cares? They'll cry and whine no matter who gets nominated by President Trump anyway; why try to appease the lousy Demo_Rats?

Jim G. said...

Stilt,

Sorry I'm a little late to the party. But I definitely can confirm I saw Kavanaugh with Busty Ross at a party when I was in high school....but then that would make them pretty young. Ok, forget that. I definitely saw them both at a party when I was in college, but then...they would probably only be 8 years old. Ok, forget that. I definitely saw them both at a party when I was stationed in Washington D.C. while I was a Navy Pilot, at a college party doing drugs, having sex, and giving homage to the Republican Party. So there, yeah, that was it.

If anyone doubts my story, all I can say, "It wasn't me, you didn't see me do it, and you can't prove a thing."

Jim G.

Jack Colby said...

Velveeta, it's MORSE Science High, n'est pas?

John the Econ said...

If you had seen Kavanaugh with Busty Ross at a party in 1983, then that would be a scandal.

No doubt, if the "Kavanaugh Standard" is allowed to stand, that will be the sort of accusation that the left will be queuing up next for future candidates and appointees.

If Kavanaugh did it (yuuuuge, enormous ,jumbo sized IF), he should have put her in a car, driven off a bridge into the water, then left her to drown. That behavior, apparently, is just peachy keen with the Democrats.

@John the Econ,
Your statement is very worrisome, but I also fear you have nailed it. The chances are pretty good that the Republicans will cave in yet again, but I'm praying that, for once, they will do the right thing, and tell the Dems to shove it, and hold the confirmation vote early next week.

@JustaJeepGuy,
Colorado Springs, eh? Sometime, cruise over to Elite Auto Salon, and say hi to my nephew, Sam (124 W Cimarron St). Tell him Uncle Rick from NC said hi (he has two uncle Ricks).

https://www.yahoo.com/news/kavanaugh-apos-aggressive-belligerent-apos-120031237.html

Remember way back when Harry Reed stood up in Congress and declared a close friend of Mitt Romney confided to him that Mitt had not paid taxes for 10 years?
Recently I saw an interview he did where he was asked about that, when Mitt was shown to have paid a lot of taxes for those 10 years...he shrugged and said "He lost, didn't he"?

Here we are again... Read what the roomie said.
He saw nothing of Brett acting in any way at any party...neither did the accuser Raimirez...mean drunk is all he has, sounds like he and Ramirez were not too cool and still resent their non-inclusion.
Peop[e at both gatherings saw nothing occur like the 2 lame bitches made up...
not ONE WITNESS!
Repressed memories? Try Harry Reed-class lies.
The first set-up almost worked...but they panicked and threw out Ramirez

@Velveeta Processed Cheese Food- Thanks! And as always, those points can be redeemed for prizes over at our gift counter!

@A. Dumas- I don't encourage the drinking of liquids while on this site (grin).

@Anonymous- I'm not sure WHAT to make of that video! I watched all of it, though!

@Dan- Oh, I think "actual malice" is absolutely demonstrable here.

@Anonymous- I think it's primarily reason #1, though #2 is certainly possible.

@Anonymous- That wasn't my cartoon. I did one in which Trump said he was going to nominate Obama for the Supreme Court, but he'd have to produce all of the records which have been locked away and hidden.

@James Daily- I completely agree. Examples need to be made of these people who are proven liars.

@JustaJeepGuy- There seem to be a lot of politically incestuous connections associated with Ramirez. Who, I just read, is refusing to testify under oath.

And I agree that at this point, Trump should nominate anyone he damn well wants to. There's no pleasing the Dems.

@Jim G- I feel your pain and would never think of re-traumatizing you with skepticism.

@Jack Colby- I honestly have no idea. They sound the same.

@John the Econ- I agree. If Kavanaugh gets shot down, we can expect every inquisition in the future to begin with "have you ever made a woman uncomfortable?" and go down from there.

@MrBeatrixKiddo- Apparently with the help of a lawyer and a few scriptwriters.

@Gee M- How I despite that smarmy little whiny bastard (Harry Reid, that is).

John the Econ said...

@Colby Muenster, Republicans offer me so few reasons to vote for them as it is. If they cannot stand up to this obvious injustice, then what is the point? The GOP has devolved into nothing more than an opposition party that in the end achieves little beyond occupying space and profiting from the corruption. If they remain content with that role, I will continue to throw my vote away on useless fringe candidates.

@MrBeatrixKiddo, you don't. Your remaining brain cells invent new ones to fill the space.

@Geoff King, it was nice to see a President that did not bow down to evil for a change.

Velveeta Processed Cheese Food said...

@Jack Colby: You may be right. It always sounded like "more" to me, but my hearing took a hit from early childhood on from days on unmuffled tractors, firecrackers, and gunshots. It hasn't improved any since.
