Trey Gowdy made one Democrat realize she made the biggest mistake of her life

Democrats pounced on the ridiculous allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.

Every Democrat running for President in 2020 wanted to be in front of the cameras launching the most over the top attacks possible.

But Trey Gowdy responded and made one Democrat realize she made the biggest mistake of her life.

New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand is one of the many 2020 hopefuls.

She didn’t sit on the Judiciary Committee so she missed that chance to make a spectacle of herself for primary voters.

But she made up for it afterwards.

At a press conference, she accused Kavanaugh of being guilty solely because the FBI was not investigating this case.

Even though the FBI has no grounds to probe local crime allegations, Gillibrand pointed to that as the proof he was guilty.

Trey Gowdy responded on Fox News and destroyed her argument.

He pointed out that Gillibrand was calling for communist dictatorship style show trial.

Gowdy also reminded her that we still live in America where there is a presumption of innocence.

The Daily Caller reports:

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy fired back at Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on “Special Report With Bret Baier” Thursday night. Gowdy criticized the New York Democrat for suggesting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is guilty solely because he has not called for the FBI to investigate the claims made against him.

Bret Baier aired the clip of Sen. Gillibrand and asked Rep. Gowdy what he thought of it.
“Wow. When I walked into the studio tonight, there was a presumption of innocence and you did not have to prove your innocence. So, I’m a little surprised to hear what the senator from New York said,” Gowdy stated.

“Bret I’ll tell you this,” he continued. “I think that Dr. Ford met with Democratic legislators before the FBI investigated it. I know that she talked to The Washington Post before the FBI investigated it. The FBI did not have jurisdiction over state sex assault claims. If they want to locate witnesses, if there are witnesses that know whether or not this happened, I am all for it and I am all for them being compelled to testify.”

    maybe the supreme court should just outlaw the demo party all together,
    if that don’t work, go with chinese justice , if the govt deems you anti govt.,
    you make them disapear

  2. rickzilla says:

    Maybe airhead Gilibrand will select her close pal: Harvey Weinstein as her running mate. I can’t believe she graduated from law school – what a disgrace to her alma mater UCLA School of Law. She’s not fit to be a president of anything. She does, however, represent her political party’s mascot: JACKASS !

  3. Cathylovesyou says:

    Kristin Rutnik Gillibrand is no qualified for the job she holds now. Her boy friend Schumer gave her the lift up as well as Hillay as heir. Running for President ? She should run for Czarina , she is a Commie, and favors those policies as Gowdy stated. She is on the wrong side of everything and off the reservation as she feels her oats and has been off on her own not asking for Schumer’s approval. Nationally no one should vote for a NY Democrat, look what they have done to that state. It is like Brown in California. High debt, taxes crime, dirty streets MS 13 and creeps and bloods running wild in the streets. Middle America was and is always right.

      She sounds like that Sinema person in Arizona or Kamala Harris in CA.!! Where did such ignorant, unAmerican bimbos crawl out from!! It’s crazy!! I think they’re both democrats. They both should have their citizenship rescinded and get exiled to a country where they think they’d be happier. We certainly do NOT need them in politics in our country!

      Senator Amy Klobuchar Once Raised $17,000 From Ex-Boyfriends
      By Amanda Arnold@aMandolinz

      Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota has, once again, made the most compelling case for staying in touch with all your exes: If you remain friends, you can guilt them into donating to your future political campaigns.

      At a TimesTalks forum this weekend, Klobuchar sat down with three other female senators — Susan Collins, Republican of Maine; Joni Ernst, Republican of Iowa; and Heidi Heitkamp, Democrat of North Dakota — to discuss women in politics, and the various obstacles they face. When the conversation turned to women’s struggle to raise money when running for office, Klobuchar referenced her 2006 Senate run in Minnesota, which she financed in a creative way, Elle reports: by making her exes donate.

      “I raised $17,000 from ex-boyfriends,” she said.

      This isn’t the first time Klobuchar has publicly spoken about this inspiring number — she joked about it at the 2009 Washington Press Club Foundation’s dinner, and again in a HuffPost Live conversation in 2015 — but it’s a statistic worth repeating, especially given the record-breaking number of women who are running for office this year. Just a tactic to keep in mind!

      *****************************

      Attention: Hon. Senator Thom Tillis, R., NC

      Attention: COS Ted Lehman

      Dear Senator Tillis, I am requesting the Senate Judiciary Committee Ethics Violation committed by Senator Amy Klobuchar’s with her claim of Campaign Fundraising by asking and using EX BOYFRIENDS to fund her election without regard to the FEC Regulations or Senate Judiciary Committee Rules. Senator Klobuchar’s depicting her personal use of her past sexual attachments as inducement. It is clearly an ignorant display of a FEMINIST Klobuchar emasculating MEN, she has had personal familial relationships with in her past. Please Hold Senator Amy Klobachar accountable for her effort to justify her propagandizing, and her pimping her Ex Boyfriends for future political aggrandizement.

  5. MJB says:

    All we need to do is find a woman to accuse Kirsten Gillibrand of conspiracy against the USA.
    By the Democrats latest logic, that should be enough to make her guilty.

    • jim says:

      So far, we have the fake pocahantis running, and I am waiting to see exactly what her format will be, and if she will still insist that she is part Native-American!? Maybe the Democraps will be shooting for CROOKED HILLY? Can you imagine CROOKED HILLY and SLICK WILLY living in the White House again? He would require his own “WING” with a separate entry,,,,,,,that way he could carry on with whomever and not run into HILLY!
      I AM SICK OF THIS WHOLE TRAVESTY, AND MY HEART GOES OUT TO JUDGE KAVANAUGH!! FOR THE WAY THAT HE HAS BEEN< AND WILL BE TREATED I PRAY FOR HIS FAMILY, HIS FUTURE, and the FUTURE OF USA! (US ALL!) WHAT FEINSTEIN AND HER FELLOW DEMOCRAPS HAVE DONE IS NOT ONLY DESPICABLE, BUT CRIMINAL AS WELL!!! TIME TO STOP VOTING FOR ANY AND ALL DEMOCRAPS!!!

      • Hawk says:

        Excellent post I agree 100% and i`m sure the real Americans will agree with you as well. And our vote will help clean the swamp rats. Our votes is our weapon.

  6. Grizz Mann says:

    Bill said. I did not have sex with that woman, Innocent until proven guilty, right?
    Whoops, she saved that blue semen stained dress. Now that is proof.
    All Rape accusers must be believed, like,Tawana Brawley, Crystal Gail Mangum, Susan Shannon, etc.. They would never lie, unless Bill Clinton, Keith Ellison, Anthony Weiner, Al Frankin, etc. is accused.

  7. Robert Higginbotham says:

    I can’t wait until the rubber meets the road and all these wannabes have to really declare. How many democrats actually throw their respective hats in the ring will be a sight to behold. Right now there is at least a dozen thinking about it none of which are qualified based on their performance to date.

  8. OLD VET says:

    she is a know nothing air head does not know about about law just follows the stupid schumer arund for yrs and does what he tells her ,she could not run for dog catcher on her own and win the dogs would vote against her.

  9. Ron says:

    There is NO Demorat fit to be President! Period!

  10. D.P. Allen says:

    Listening to Feinstein’s answer brought up numerous questions, but answered nothing. She only stated that her office ddn’t leak anything, but then proceeded to talk about all of the things that happened AFTER the leak. (No “press could bother Dr. Ford and she couldn’t have been chased out of her home until AFTER the leak. Until the leak, no one had a clue that there was a letter!)

    Now, if you believe Feinstein’s statement about Dr. Ford that says you MUST believe everything that Dr. Ford says because she is a victim, then that means that her saying that she and her lawyer didn’t leak anything HAS TO BE TRUE. That ONLY leaves Feinstein and Dr. Ford’s representative in congress as the possible leakers.

    • Ron says:

      Nothing ANY of these low life Demorats say about anything can be assumed to be true! If DiFi says she didn’t leak, you can bet she did! Today’s Demorat Party functions totally on lies and hypocrisy. If they didn’t they could not exist!

  12. Gerry says:

    Her statement against Kavanaugh just makes her a libtard moron, she has never been fit to even run for President let alone be elected. This female is a worthless POS who just follows the despicible schumer around like a little pupppy dog. She has done absolutely nothing for New York State.

  13. Believer says:

    REALLY WERE WE EXPECTING ANY THING RESPECTFUL OR DECENT TO COME FROM ANY DEMOCRATS.. THEY ARE THE LOW LIVES OF HUMANITY/…

  14. K says:

    As a very crime of sexual abuse at about the same age as this accuser was I can promise you that there would have been no possible way I could have hidden my emotions or not told somebody what happened. It is such an intrusive act that there’s no way I could possibly describe my state of mind during & after the attack. I find it unbelievable that any young girl would be able to hide her emotions following a sexual assault, even one described by this accuser. In addition, one would see a notable change in the victims chatacter after the attack. This change, most often, is a change that distinctly affects ones ability to trust- it even affects ones mood and how they interact with others. For me, that change lasted for years. I simply don’t buy her story, too many things just don’t add up.

  15. How can I put this as simply as possible. Kirsten Gillibrand is just plain stupid, and deserves absolutely nothing but a swift kick in the a** from the electorate in 2020.

    Do you think it’s right that Mitch McConnell is rushing to confirm Kavanaugh before the midterm elections? Did you know Brett Kavanaugh refused to answer questions on women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and the Mueller investigation in his confirmation hearings?

    • JR342 says:

      Well, I asked your parents if it was true that your mother is not really your mother, and they refused to answer, guess that means they are definitely not. And I asked your dad if it was true you were stolen from the zoo. Again they refused to answer. I don’t think it’s fair, but we must assume you are actually a zoo animal. And there are questions lingering as to whether you are actually a child molester and whether you murder puppies. But since you refuse to answer we have to assume you are GUILTY. But again you are such a smart liberal you can read something between the lines on anything Brett Kavanaugh says, and assume he is lying about something. That is just as ridiculous as my statements about you and your parents, isn’t it. Just reading between the lines!

    • Pj says:

      Know what, shut up. Women have all rights, lgbto is a disgrace to humanity. So sick of these people. They all have rights but you have no rights when you go after our kids . Keep your way of life to yourself. No one is rushing anything. These women who accuse him are liars. Paid by the democrats to stop anything the president does. This is America not Nazi Germany. We have laws. Your innocent first then go to court. This crap because she said doesn’t make it true. Common sense might help you with your stupidity.

    • n wilson oliver says:

      Rushing to confirm!!! Classic doublespeak from 1984–Your desperate party is using every trick in the book to attempt to lynch, yes, LYNCH, Kavanaugh IN THE MEDIA!!! These allegations of drugged “memories” were NOT introduced when it was the appropriate time–and you know why! They KNEW there was no substance–it was a chimera which was only valuable with the ORCHESTRATED OUTRAGE you fools conduct!!!

      Vasu, if you find OUR process so abhorrent, perhaps you might wish to change residences and find Shangri-La elsewhere! The Women’s Rights issue is another red herring–more than HALF his staff have been women WITH UNQUALIFIED PRAISE for his conduct–Oh and the LGBTQFU issue is a pathetic joke–You like those “gender-confused” little misfits–go party with them and go find a Russian–or better, focus your outrage on real targets, the Clintons–who are legitimate targets of your “outrage”–

    • Dad Al says:

      Do you think its right that the demo’s purposely waited all this time to try and keep a vote from being had on the judge ? You would have to be an idiot not to see just what is happening. She, that senator had that info almost 2 months before she brought it out, surely that tells you something. Also, all the demo’s have already said they would vote no even before they knew anything about the judge. Wake up, these libs are trying to change our country to something you won’t like !!!!!

    • Rxtek says:

      Cite your source of information please. I, for one don’t believe you.

      • Shannon says:

        There is always one in the crowd. “Cite your sources”. All you have to do is watch the hearings! Every single thing
        Dad AI said was heard & discussed on the news. I suggest you watch and listen to news channel OAN, best 24 hr news network out there. One American News. No commercials, either! But Dad AI should not have to “cite sources” just because you don’t keep up with the current confirmation hearings. Again, everything was discussed, over and over again. I ran into a Commentor like you recently. Wanted sources cited, mainly cause he was too lazy to turn his TV on to a news channel. Check news channels on internet.

    • SHIRLEY WILLIAMS says:

      It is not what he thinks or believes… when he is judging a case before him he should judge on the merits. Unlike Dems Judges who “make” law that THEY are pushing.

  19. John Decker says:

    Sen. Grassley needs to grow a pair. This woman has no evidence that this is anything but a partisan political smear job to keep Kavanaugh out of the Supreme Court because he might- not will- overturn Roe. The Dems are so scared to lose the money from abortions and selling baby parts that they will do ANYTHING to stop Kavanaugh’s appointment. It is past time for Grassley to tell the Dems to stuff it and Ford to put up or shut up. If the Dems are allowed to pull off this obstruction, every appointment hearing from now to eternity will look just like this one or worse. If this BS is not stopped now it never will be.

  20. Al says:

    This ability to lie, manipulate, humiliate without reason, smear, take bribes (pay for play) and any other immoral act is why the DNC will only fund de facto atheists for office.

  21. Terry says:

    I thought the only crime that didn’t have a Statute of Limitations was Murder. She had plenty of time to report alleged attempted rape, she didn’t because it never happened.
    And all these Hollywood star’s just now coming out about their alleged rapes, had their time to report it. IF it were me, I would of reported it right after it happened!!! WORK PLACE sexual abuse has been taught since 1984, so these women WHO are just coming out, you knew better. And you are ruining our Justice system, your Lie’s reflect negatively are Women who are truly abused.

    • Betty Jay says:

      I agree. Every woman has been told to report ANY sexual harassment. Many if those women accusers are liars and make it tough for REAL SEXUAL HARASSMENTS. Those who falsely accuse someone should have to serve prison time.

    • D.P. Allen says:

      IN MD, ATTEMPTED rape is a misdemeanor with a 1 year statute of limitations. Actual rape is a felony with NO statute of limitations. Since she claims it was only an attempted rape, the statute of limitations ran out 34+ years ago.

    How about, why did she go into the bedroom. Who did she go to the party with,how much did she drink,Did she say NO .she can’t even remember the house this backfired on her she never wanted to come out. The Dems leaked her name

  23. Gloria says:

    Any abuser of sexual abuse, especially a 15 yr. old, would have confided in a friend, a teacher, a parent, someone, at the time and not have waited 36 yrs. later to report this. She cannot remember any details, date, where, who else was at the party, how did she get home and what time she got home, etc. As soon as this inf. was released, she should’ve been glad to testify and tell her story, She has now become a pawn of the DEMS. The Republicans have given her the time and all decent options to come forward. Why not ??

  26. K says:

    With Gillibrand is an educated idiot who doesn’t know the justice system OR she depends on the ignorance of others to believe her stupid comment about Kavanaughs guilt because the FBI refuses to investigate him. Truth is, at every level of his appointments, the FBI has investigated him as they do all federally appointed judges, etc.
    Personally, as a victim of a sexual attack, I find it next to impossible to believe Dr Ford waited 35-36 years to state these allegations. Seems more fitting that Soros or Steyer or HRC got to her in hopes of destroying his chances of becoming a judge on the highest court!
    A first grader could figure out this is a last ditch effort to block kavanaughs nomination, at the very least delay it. They’re so obviously corrupt it is sinful. FEINSTEIN should be answering her own questions about her 20+ year CHINESE spy driver – that’s priceless!
    Far as Gillibrand, the word BIMBO is first to enter my mind. She’s desperate to rule but lacks the knowledge to lead a horse to water!

      • BSM says:

        You bring up a very good point, Ms. Douglass ! Also, something else occurs to me, I wonder what her year books might tell us?? I have not heard much said
        about this area of investigation, however, if I were investigating this case, I would look for, say Sophomore, Junior, and Senior year books on this individual. After all, it has been deemed fair to look into the Judges’ personal files, nothing has been held back concerning his business, personal and professional.
        I would begin with records of different types, before they had a chance to be “scrubbed”, you know, the type that very intelligent Republicans, Independents, etc., on the ball citizens of all sorts, might have captured before they were tampered with. That just might give us all the pictures and statements that would settle the case rather nicely, would it not? Hummm….. might even send some up for treasonous actions, might it not??
        I wonder how many years one might get for trying to incriminate a Judge in
        good standing, one who is known to stand up for the right judgements ?? Seems to me that persons trying to entrap an honest Constitutional Judge,
        would fill the bill of a Treasonous group, doesn’t it? Seems to me that anyone who would try such an idiotic maneuver, is against all our country stands for, sounds very TREASONOUS to MANY of us !! Pause and think of that !

God bless America and may God smite the demonically evil left starting with Jell-O brand that Allison, Pelosi,And Maxine Waters to start with

  30. Doc JD says:

    Gowdy is a lawyer who is saying erroneous things because it draws attention to himself. First, this is NOT a trial, a criminal case, so there is no presumption of innocence and the burden on the accuser to prove a case. This is a hearing to see if the country is best served by a lifetime appointment to the SC or to find someone who is best qualified. If there is a doubt at all about a lifetime appointment, we should walk away and find another.

    Second, Gowdy throws foolish arguments around about some Communist show trial, which is just too bizarre – – if anyone is acting like a dictator, it would have to be Grassley who is running the show. Gowdy should also know as a lawyer that the use of the FBI is standard practice in these hearings, as was done in the case of Anita Hill who brought up allegations about Justice Clarence Thomas under similar circumstances. The FBI did an investigation in 2-3 days.

    Gowdy is on his way out to pursue more lucrative avenues. He is making a pitch but using biased and erroneous information that is not correct.

    • Laurie says:

      There is an accusation. Normally an accusation is either dropped or goes to trial. The accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty. It is the accuser who has to prove that the accused is guilty.
      As far as this hearing goes, the accuser still has to produce viable, reasonable evidence that her accusation is true. Without that you would have chaos….anyone could say anything. How would you like it if someone erroneously accused you of something that you did not do?
      People who have agendas often LIE. A person who has their life ahead of them should not have it tainted by someone with political agendas. If Ford were to produce concrete believable evidence then I agree with you. Unfortunately, not only has she not produced evidence, her background of democrat activism TAINTS her word! She is NOT believable !
      Quite frankly, it is very offensive to me that she is playing the “victim” card when there are real victims of abuse, attack, and rape out there – it diminishes those of us who have really been attacked!

  31. Rick says:

    Bob, the FBI doesn’t investigate sex crimes – it’s NOT their jurisdiction. Plus I don’t think they investigate anyone that was under 18 years of age at the time of the alleged incident. If anybody needs a FBI investigation, it should be Dr Ford. How is her credibility and background? Maybe her motive for naming the judge is because her parents lost their home to foreclosure. Why is that you say? Judge Kavanaugh’s mother was the presiding judge! Why doesn’t she just go and talk to the Senate – she had no problems blabbing to the Washington post.

    • Dr. J. D. says:

      Rick you are using a false comparison. This is NOT investigated criminally. This is EXACTLY the same kind of scenario as with Justice Thomas and Anita Hill, and they brought the FBI back into investigate backgrounds, as they always do, and it only took 2-3 days. Again, it is not a criminal investigation, but it COULD be if Dr. Ford filed the paperwork in Maryland, which has NO statute of limitations.

      As to your second argument, the Washington Post was before her death threats and they were not hostile to listening to her. Now, some of the Republicans on the Judiciary Committee have UNPROFESSIONALLY passed judgment on her, along with the horrible example of both Trump and McConnell publicly siding with Kavanaugh. She enters a very hostile environment, where she cannot even bring corroborating witnesses (she has two) and yet Anita Hill had 22.

      • Dan says:

        Why did she not bring this to light when he became a Federal Judge? If he had not been nominated as a Supreme Court Justice it would have been okay and she never would have come forward? the situation would not have been as traumatizing and she would have left it alone? Just something to think about.

      • Rick says:

        Dr J D, the FBI investigated Anita hill vs Thomas case because they were both government employees. Totally different in this case. Judge Kavanaugh has had at 6 background checks already with one very recent. Reopening is pointless. They have already said they won’t reopen it. What the hell can be investigated, she seems to know NOTHING, not even the year or place. Also, her witnesses, Mr Judge has already said under oath, that it didn’t happen as did another witness she named in the letter. If anyone needs an FBI background check, it is Dr Ford. Oh, the letter, what hell do you call a Senator who sat on this information for nearly 2 months and after the hearing was over, then dropped it – an OBSTRUCTIONIST! She still hasn’t given a raw copy of the letter to the chairman. Sen Feinstein should be looked into also. You evidently don’t watch TV., the ones that are prejudging are the filthy lying Democratic senators and most of the nut jobs in Hollywood. They are a disgrace to the Senate, Dr Ford and Judge Kavanaugh. The republicans have been very professional and have bent over backwards to accommodate her so she can tell her story while the loony Democrat board members boycotted the investigation. Judiciary Chairman even said they would go to her. You’ve incorrectly labeled the wrong party as unprofessional; it’s the Democrats that have no honor. As far as the death threats go, she made her bed and disclosed her name, the republicans DIDN’T. By the way, Judge Kavanaugh is also receiving threats. Are you a US citizen? In this country the defendant is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The burden of proof rests with Dr Ford. Why the delay Dr Ford, you have had no problem blabbing to the Washington post. At lease she will be under oath and under protection of the capitol police. Let’s hear her story now!

Besides, a biased employee of Grassley was chosen and he sent out tweets to show he had already made up his mind before talking to Dr. Ford. Not even a pretense of fairness for Dr. Ford. Read these posts here, everyone has already made up their minds and not only found her guilty, but also all democrats for some vile charges.

        • Clarissa Jones says:

      Christine Ford is mentally ill and the liberal baby killer faction is trying to use her to smear Brett Kavanaugh because he supports the Constitution. The tail does not wag the dog. Christine Ford’s attempt to manipulate the US Senate should be stopped immediately. Only nut cases have an interest in her fiction story. In normal jurisprudence it is the responsibility of an accuser to present evidence. Ms Ford has failed to do that. She is lying and playing a game. No one is under obligation to defend himself against a 35 year old fiction told by a person who comes across as quite unstable and disturbed. Get on with the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It appears quite clearly the baby killer faction does not want him sitting on the high court. They worship that ancient god to whom babies were sacrificed around 2700 years ago.

      • Ric B says:

        First of all Walt, what are your qualifications to assess a person mentally ill – – do you have professional degrees and certification. Even a college degree? You call her unstable and disturbed, so what evidence do you have for that because she is a successful professor at one of the best schools in America and has written over 50 professional publications. That is NOT the mark of an unstable person.

        Second, most of you DO NOT UNDERSTAND this is NOT a criminal case, where the accused has the presumption of innocence and the accuser’s job to “make a case.” It is a hearing to decide if Kavanaugh is the best choice for the SC or whether the country might be best served with someone else.

        You have assumed DOCTOR Ford has failed to present her case BEFORE she has even giving testimony. She has two witnesses, that that biased Grassley will not allow. Anita Hill was allowed to have 22 witnesses, Dr. Ford, NONE!

        Your last comment is too vile and sick to respond to. I think you have given more evidence of being disturbed than Dr. Ford to date by saying sick and biased garbage like that.

  40. Sarah Wilson says:

    Gillibrand’s reasoning is a bit twisted! He is guilty because the FBI is not investigating? That is absurd. The FBI is not investigating because there is nothing to investigate. They don’t any information needed for an investigation and no place to start. Gillibrand probably believe that all men are rapists and all women always tell the truth.

  41. Rick says:

    Sen Gillibrand is nuts. She couldn’t have gone to law school or if she did she must have been sleeping. I think the Bar should think about disbarring her for her outrageous rant that goes totally against the American way.

    The person that needs to be investigated is Dr Ford. I think the FBI should do a background check on her ASAP and see just how credible she is. Judge Kavanaugh has already had 6 of them.

    Next I think Sen Feinstein should go the through the ethics committee and/or be indited for withholding evidence from the Judiciary commentate. She has disgraced her office, Dr Ford and Judge Kavanaugh!

    Lastly, Sen Blumenthal should keep quite – he seems to lie whenever he talks. Claims he was a Vietnam veteran – what a liar and a buffoon! Maybe he peeled potatoes as a Marine reservist while he was still home with his mommy. He disgraces all of us who really did serve.

    In a court of law, Kavenaugh gets the assumption of innocence until proven guilty by a preponderance of the evidence. There is no such requirement in the court of public opinion, which this is. Shocking that right wingers don’t know that.

    But that’s not true, is it? You are just hypocritical. For example, in the case Of Hillary Clinton, most of you would have already consigned her to the firing squad with not so much as an opening statement by the Defense, and charged her family for the bullet.

    • Gary Jensen says:

      Eric,
      Kavenaugh is a respected jurist! Respected by both parties in his last selection to the Court of Appeals. He has been around for 30 years, and if he was a predator most assuredly there would be many others. Hillary Clinton is a predator. Donald Trump boasting in a locker room 11 or 12 years does not make him a predator. The court of public opinion has already decided he would be the best choice as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

  44. Vasu Murti says:

    The Republicans who refused to give Merrick Garland a fair hearing and who demanded we wait until after the 2016 elections to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court now are trying to rush through confirmation hearings during the 2018 election year…

    …which would inevitably lead to a heated nationwide debate over abortion and the directly related issues of personhood, privacy, and civil liberties, or at the very least, quickly become. a referendum on abortion during the 2018 election year. And they have yet to release Kavanaugh’s entire record.

    Serious charges are being leveled against Kavanaugh. It isn’t a “communist dictatorship style show trial” as the article implies. In other parts of the world, like Mexico, which is under “Napoleonic” code or law, one must prove one’s innocence. Yes, here in the United States, one is entitled presumed innocent until proven guilty and entitled to a fair hearing a fair trial, etc., whether the trial involves Rodney King, O.J. Simpson, Oscar Grant, Trevon Martin, etc. Kirsten Gillibrand’s comments are a bit presumptuous, but not “anti-American.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

      Not sure you understand the law or the Constitution. The accusations against Judge Kavanaugh are just that accusations. He is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. The examples you brought up were all settled in courts of law. Whether you agreed with the decisions or not the persons were adjudicated by a jury of their peers. Senator Gilliabrand’s comments allow that she fails to have a grasp on the very Constitution that she took an oath to uphold. You should get a better grasp of the situation before you spout off!

    • Minoo says:

      Vasu–You are totally wrong–Firstly–Traditionally NO Supreme Court Nomination was considered in the last Year of a President’s term–At least I cannot remember a single one. So there was no precedent for considering Garland.
      Secondly–Kavanaugh has been in the public eye for over 20 years. ALL his pronouncements are in the public records. There is no need for any “OTHER” records to be released. If his 20-odd years of writings, judgments and briefs cannot show you what type of judge he will be, then you need to go back to school and learn the methods of objective analysis. You talk about the Democratic Platform including those assiduous items delineated in your post–You Forget–If you had been born during Indira’s reign, you may not even have had the opportunity to be considered as a gleam in your father’s eye. Shame on you for being a proponent of ABORTION–because that is what the Pro-Lifers are! Animal Rights OVER human rights!!That is not what the Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, or Sikhs teach. If you do not care for humans, there will be no one left to take care of the animals. Lastly–glad you threqw in Global warming, now called climate change. I do not know where you live, but where I live climate changes every day, week, and month–we have a saying–If You Do Not Like The weather, wait 5 minutes it will change!! In 1973, there was a study conducted by the nations of our world on the worldly weather–conclusion was that by the year 1993 we would have an ice freeze and 75% of the world would be in a deep freeze. Study was published and got rave reviews for accuracy and boldness!! Much different than the dribble coming out of Igor’s brother’s mouth.

      • Vasu Murti says:

        Minoo, Article II of the U.S. Constitution states that the President “shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint judges of the Supreme Court.” Therefore, President Obama was required to put forward a nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy, and the Senate had an obligation to quickly consider that nominee.

        Chief Judge Garland was a nominee with impeccable qualifications. A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Judge Garland served since 1997 on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. He previously clerked for Supreme Court Justice William Brennan and famed Judge Henry Friendly before serving as the Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice.

        During his time at the Department of Justice, Garland led the investigation and prosecution following the tragic bombing in Oklahoma City in 1995, which claimed the lives of 168 people. Chief Judge Garland has the disposition and the credentials to serve on the Court, and that he deserves a full review and hearing in the Judiciary Committee.

        Fourteen Supreme Court Justices have been confirmed in presidential election years, before the presidential election took place. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy was confirmed in 1988 during the final year of President Ronald Reagan’s term. Justice Clarence Thomas was confirmed in October 1991, after the presidential election campaign had begun that year.

        In both instances, the Senate had a majority of Democratic members, but still moved to confirm them to the high court. In fact, not since the Civil War, in 1862, has the Senate taken longer than a year to confirm a replacement for a Supreme Court vacancy.

        In addition, an eight-member court creates the potential for deadlock in important cases, which will create uncertainty in the law. In 2004, Justice Scalia wrote about the dangers of an eight-member Court. He stated that in cases of a tie vote, the Court “will find itself unable to resolve the significant legal issue presented by the case.” That means the law and constitutional protections could differ in different parts of the country, denying the full system of justice guaranteed by our Constitution. In fact, the Supreme Court was already deadlocked in two cases since Justice Scalia passed away.

        Republicans refused to meet with Garland nor give him a simple up or down vote!

        Prominent Republicans previously spoke favorably of Merrick Garland, a moderate. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said, “Obama could easily name Merrick Garland, who is a fine man.” Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said, “I have nothing against the nominee. Mr. Garland seems to be well qualified and would probably make a good judge.” Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) similarly said, “I would feel comfortable supporting him.” And Rep. David Jolly (R-Florida) said Republicans should act on President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee in 2016. “I do think he should have a hearing and I would like to see a vote,” Jolly said. The Florida lawmaker also said if he were in the Senate now, he would meet with Obama’s pick, Merrick Garland. “Of course,” he said.

        Jolly didn’t say he’d vote for Garland. He said he’d vote against him, and cited concerns with his judicial record on the Second Amendment and labor unions. Nonetheless, he said the Senate’s job is to give nominees hearings and votes, and they should be doing it with Garland’s nomination. “That’s actually the proper exercise of the Senate’s Article I authority,” he said.

        It might not sound like a bold statement, but Jolly’s comments came as several GOP senators refused to even sit down with Obama’s nominee. That’s because Republican leaders settled on a strategy of denying Garland any attention and punting the Supreme Court nomination until 2017. It’s the Republicans playing partisan games, not the Democrats!

        Minoo, you seem to view animal rights issues not as directly related sanctity-of-life issues, the way abortion and euthanasia are directly related sanctity-of-life issues, nor as a similar campaign, like women’s rights and civil rights are similar campaigns, but rather as a threat to the pro-life movement!

        The ancient eastern reincarnationist religions Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism all predate Christianity, all oppose abortion, all teach ahimsa, or nonviolence towards humans and animals alike to the point of vegetarianism, all are vegan-friendly, and all teach that abortion and war are the karma for killing animals, and that therefore, we cannot end abortion nor bring about world peace until first we abolish the killing of animals.

        The fate of the animals and the fate of man are interconnected. (Ecclesiastes 3:19) A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, worshipped by millions of Vaishnavaite Hindus worldwide as a shaktya-avesha-avata, or empowered representative of God, said in 1974:

        “We simply request, ‘Don’t kill. Don’t maintain slaughterhouses.’ That is very sinful. It brings a very awkward karmic reaction upon society. Stop these slaughterhouses. We don’t say, ‘Stop eating meat.’ You can eat meat, but don’t take it from the slaughterhouse, by killing. Simply wait (until the animal dies of natural causes) and you’ll get the carcasses.

        “You are killing innocent cows and other animals–nature will take revenge. Just wait. As soon as the time is right, nature will gather all these rascals and slaughter them. Finished. They’ll fight among themselves–Protestants and Catholics, Russia and America, this one and that one. It is going on. Why? This is nature’s law. Tit for tat. ‘You have killed. Now you kill yourselves.’

        “They are sending animals to the slaughterhouse, and now they’ll create their own slaughterhouse. You see? Just take Belfast. The Roman Catholics are killing the Protestants, and the Protestants are killing the Catholics. This is nature’s law. It is not necessary that you be sent to the ordinary slaughterhouse. You’ll make a slaughterhouse at home. You’ll kill your own child–abortion. This is nature’s law.

        “Who are these children being killed? They are these meat-eaters. They enjoyed themselves when so many animals were killed and now they’re being killed by their own mothers. People do not know how nature is working. If you kill you must be killed. If you kill the cow, who is your mother, then in some future lifetime your mother will kill you. Yes. The mother becomes the child, and the child becomes the mother.

        “We don’t want to stop trade, or the production of grains and vegetables and fruit. But we want to stop these killing houses. It is very, very sinful. That is why all over the world they have so many wars. Every ten or fifteen years there is a big war–a wholesale slaughterhouse for humankind. But these rascals–they do not see it, that by the law of karma, every action must have its reaction.”

        In a 1979 essay entitled “Abortion and the Language of Unconsciousness,” contemporary Hindu spiritual master Ravindra-svarupa dasa (Dr. William Deadwyler) explains Srila Prabhupada’s words in terms of a secular slippery slope argument, familiar to pro-lifers:

        “A (spiritually) conscious person will not kill even animals (much less very young humans) for his pleasure or convenience. Certainly the unconsciousness and brutality that allows us to erect factories of death for animals lay the groundwork for our treating humans in the same way.”

        In the March 1982 issue of Back to Godhead, another contemporary Hindu spiritual master, Srila Hridayananda dasa Goswami (Dr. Howard Resnick), comments on this shortcoming of the anti-abortion movement:

        Insisting that human life begins at conception, the anti-abortion movement seeks to shock us into the awareness that abortion means killing–killing a human being rather than an animal, a bird, an insect, or a fish.

        “Thus although the movement calls itself ‘pro-life,’ it is really ‘pro-human-life.’ Its fudging with the terms ‘life’ and ‘human life’ reveals a disturbing assumption: that nonhuman life is somehow not actually life at all, or, if it is, then it is somehow not as ‘sacred’ as human life and therefore not worth protecting….

        “If the pro-life movement can become part of a broader struggle to recognize the sacredness of all life… then undoubtedly it will attain great success.”

        No lay practitioner of bhakti-yoga nor ordained (initiated) with lifelong vows can take a stand against the killing of the unborn without simultaneously taking a stand against the killing of animals for food, clothing, sport, etc.

        In his 1987 booklet, The New Abolitionists: Animal Rights and Human Liberation, subtitled, “An introduction to the ascendant animal rights movement, framed in the historical context of human emancipation and explained in the terminology of progressive thought and politics,” B.R. Boyd similarly writes:

        “With more and more people sensing connections between the looming global violence of environmental collapse and thermonuclear war, on the one hand, and our various ‘localized’ or specific violences of child abuse, sexual assault, class exploitation, etc., on the other, the message of the animal rights movement echoes an ancient Chinese Buddhist saying:

        “If you wish to know
        “Why there are disasters
        “Of armies and weapons in the world
        “Listen to the piteous cries
        “From the slaughterhouse at midnight”

        “Whether viewed spiritually as karma or in secular, psychological terms as the natural result of our individual and collective psychic numbing to the suffering we inflict, it does seem that our violence comes back to haunt us — as we have sown, so are we reaping — and that the roots of our ecological and nuclear dilemma reach deep into our history and our psychology.

        “It seems increasingly clear that a thoroughgoing solution to the big problems we face will require a radical change in many of our ways of thinking and feeling and being in the world. Radical ecofeminism and some other wholistic perspectives are teaching us that an integral part of that change lies in learning to balance our intellect — including clear-headed analysis, which is essential — with our emotions, integrating head and heart, and developing circular and complete relationships with the earth and her creatures, as contrasted with the separated, linear patterns and the absolute primacy of intellect over feeling and intuition that seem to typify Western patriarchal thinking.”

        In the April 1995 issue of Harmony: Voices for a Just Future, a peace and justice periodic on the religious left, Catholic civil rights activist Bernard Broussard similarly concludes:

        “…our definition of war is much too limited and narrow. Wars and conflicts in the human kingdom will never be abolished or diminished until, as a pure matter of logic, it includes the cessation of war between the human and animal kingdoms.

        “For, if we be eaters of flesh, or wearers of fur, or participants in hunting animals, or in any way use our might against weakness, we are promoting, in no matter how seemingly insignificant a fashion, the spirit of war.'”

        The “might makes right” mentality that makes abortion possible begins with what we humans do to other animals.

        Animals are like children. If you can’t see toddlers as persons, how will you ever see zygotes and embryos as persons?

        The institutionalized killing of billions of animals has led to global hunger, global warming, the energy, environmental, population and water crises. Why is it so hard to accept that there’s a slippery slope, a connection between the killing of animals and the killing of human beings?

        Again, it’s a core belief among the ancient eastern reincarnationist religions which predate Christianity (Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism), that abortion and war are the karma for killing animals, and that therefore we cannot end abortion nor war until we first abolish the killing of animals. PETA literature in the ’80s said concisely: “A nonviolent philosophy begins at breakfast.”

      Serious Charges, 30 years ago! Wow, what rock has she been hiding under all this time? I see that you raise the flag for Democrats for America. Animals are not human beings, many need to be destroyed because they do not belong in society. Take the case of a woman and her dog attacked by three pit-bull dogs, that no doubt belonged to homeless drug dealers. There are many such cases. Responsible owners care for their companions. ACT is not affordable. I am still waiting for my $2,400 in savings promised. “We have to pass this bill so we can find out what is in it.” The Democratic Party does not have any pro life candidates, they believe in killing of all babies. Gun Control. Why? Gun control wherever it has been tried has been a failure. Look at Chicago, Washington DC, toughest gun control laws in the country. There are other ways of identifying weapons. All school shootings can be avoided with new technology, as well as the Vegas massacre by use of Patriot 1 technology. Net neutrality, now that would put Democrats controlling all social media websites as they do now. Why would you desire to change that from happening. Minimum wage of $15.00 an hour. You must not have ever had a job in your life or were not very good at the job that you did not perform. If you do your job extremely well, you will be rewarded. There are many here just like in the former Soviet Union, that would show up for work just to collect wages, doing little or no work, those that did the excellent job got no better than the one who did nothing. Why do you think the system failed? Global warming was a ruse to get money from the governments across the world. Scientific consensus were paid to come up with the answers that the governments wanted. Ask someone who was not bought off. They finally could not make a case any longer for global warming, they then changed it to climate change. We need all the carbon we can get to keep from going into a new ice age. You and others think that the earths climate is controlled by humans, and that planet earth live in a vacuum and nothing changes, we have very little control over climate, this is controlled by the sun. the sun appears to be going to sleep for a number of years. More ever we have a sustainable Energy Policy under President Trump! It is time for you to Walk Away from the Democratic Party as I did years ago ! Go out and get a real job! Not the Democratic Communist Party of the United States.

    they think the FBI should investigate this matter. What about the rapist Clinton how soon they forget. She’s a dumb ass POS trying to reck a mans life. If I was the Senate I would have her testify under oath then get the FBI to investigate bust her lying ass put her ass in jail. Then go after the dumb ass democratic ass hole who paid her to do it and put his ass in jail next to her.

      Great idea

      You said it right..She’s nothing but trash the Demos paid to do this.But they will let the whore Bill Clinton go free.

    • Pat says:

      I agree completely with you Mark. These limelight seeking tramps make me sorry I am female. I promise you if a man had touched me inappropiately , or tried to sexually seduce me, I wouldn’t wait until I had one foot in the grave to remember it. I have had more than my share of attention, because of my looks, in my lifetime. It never gave me a reason to succumb to the propositions, nor did it turn my head. I always knew it would come to an end when I got older (like I am now). And I never used this idiotsy to climb any ladder. I certainly would never cause shame on my family by acting like this lying “Professor”. She should have said something WHEN or IF it happened, or shut her lying mouth.

    • BB says:

      The FBI has no jurisdiction. This is a local police matter. And this Dr. Ford has never filed a complaint, even now, with the local authorities. That seems to tell me that this is a very questionable matter that may not have occurred. This is a Democrap delay tactic and Sen. Grassley needs to shut this down and call for the vote.

  47. Hey, she’s a N.Y. Demon-Crap. arrogant, ignorant, un-informed and stupid.

  48. David Rose says:

    To be elected as a Democrat these days one must be able to do 3 things, they are: CHEAT, STEAL, and LIE.
    As an American be careful who you vote for.

  49. Fr Tom Martin says:

    For an elected official to make a statement that would suggest you are guilt until YOU prove your innocent is frightening. What kind of people have we let get elected. How can we survive if our elected officials are that corrupt or stupid. I have learned more truth about how messed up things are in Washington D.C, under President Trump than ever before in my life. I do not know how we have survived as long as we have. The very foundation of our government was build on faith in a God. Today it is hard to find anyone in Washington that ever thinks of faith, trust, morality and certainty not a God. Someone posted the FBI should get involved in all crimes. I guess they are asking for a Police State where one law enforcement agency controls the nation sort of like Russia. We need to be careful what we ask for we might just get it. Diane knows the law she ignored the law. She knows the rules that govern the FBI and if she did not then what is she doing in Washington. The Democrats snd some Republicans could care less about laws, rules and order when it comes to getting what they want. We have become puppets and they are the puppet masters. I thank God everyday that I am old. I do not want to be around to see what so many fought and died for destroyed.

    • Patricia Gaviglio says:

      Fr Tom…I cannot believe you are blaming Trump for a messed up Washington. Do you watch the news and understand how corrupt Washington became under the administration of Barack Obama??? A corrupt Justice Dept and a corrupt CIA with a biased media approving of everything they did. Every Attorney General he appointed was corrupt.

      • Minoo says:

        Patricia–Maybe you read a different post by Fr. Tom–There is nothing in his post that indicates President Trump is responsible for the mess in Washington DC. He is saying that President Trump showed him what a mess the DC Swamp is! Please re-read his post and then comment.
        Fr. Tom-you are absolutely right.All the people who want the FBI (now proven to be as corrupt as the Swamp people) to investigate ALL crimes–no one has said that, but once you give a law enforcement agency unrestricted power, they will become like the KGB (if they are not already).

    • Tonja says:

      Maybe you should tweet this to the dictator..

    • She’s not the only one who thinks that way and has said the same thing as this Jackwad.

  50. D D says:

    Wow! That’s not even what I typed!!

  51. Tommie Walker says:

    You call the police. You tell them that you were attacked. THEY tell you to come in and file a report. You say no that’s okay. Case closed… OR No case to begin with…. 36yrs later, You tell a senator that you were attacked. WHO? Kavanaugh. WHEN??? 36yrs ago during high school. Well, let’s get to the bottom of this!! WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, HOW, AND WHO ELSE WAS THERE??? I don’t remember that part…. But, it was Brett…. The FBI can’t find Hitlary’s e-mails but; Maybe they missed something when they did a background check 5 times on Brett. Never mind. I want to remain anonymous…..

  52. Barbara Cook says:

    I have said and I’ll say it again, ” The Democrats are going to do everything that they can to ruin President Trump’s presidency!” They weren’t happy with the way the election turned out in 2016, so, they are going to continue with obstructing President Trump in every way shape or form to make sure that he will look bad to his supporters. That is the main goal with the corrupt and crooked Democrats PERIOD!

    I do not believe that Judge Kavanaugh did everything that Dr. Ford is saying for my opinion, and another, she can’t remember what house, the year that this was suppose to happen to her, and she doesn’t remember everybody that was suppose to be involved with this incident. My other point of view is, Dr. Ford picked the wrong attorney to represent her in this case.

    I am praying that Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed and appointed to the Supreme Court A.S.A.P. !!!!!!!

    Judge Kavanaugh will be an excellent Justice on the Supreme Court. GET HIM CONFIRMED AND APPOINTED NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Janet says:

      Barbara: I’m in total agreement with your comments. I believe the Democrats are fearful that the law will prevail and appoint Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Dems don’t care who they destroy, even children, who they are constantly “defending” regarding the WALL!

    • Tonja says:

      No he will be a Trump supporter..get real

    • trapperwv1 says:

      So far the democrats have done nothing but weaken their party . in a strange way maybe that is the old guard trying to preserve our America by undercutting their rank and file.

  53. Mike says:

    There’s nothing unamerican about Kristan’s comments. The FBI should be investigating the alledged claim. It may have occurred locally, but once it becomes a claim against someone who is being nominated for a life time appointment thr FBI should be investigating. A few days to investigate is reasonable. Kananaugh should want it done also to clear his good name.

    • Stephanie Cripe says:

      The FBI does not have jurisdiction unless a crime occurs on federal property or the crime breaks a federal law. If you had a brain, you would know this.

    • Cliff says:

      PLEASE tell me how many FBI ‘investigations” have to be done? He has gone through 6 what I have heard, plus the last one as he was nominated for SCOTUS.
      This was a “job” for local law enforcement, (but no “police” investigation was ever DONE.
      “she” has NO leg to stand on and will be made a BRIBED LYING FOOL , and open for a LAWSUIT.
      This is a “stall tactic” by DEMOCOMMUNISTS. gillibrand herself is NOTHING but a LYING anti-AMERICAN sack of Excrement. DEMOCOMMUNISTS will do and say ANYTHING including making up “stories” and out and out LIES to attempt to retain their STOLEN POWER, CONTROL, and those all-precious TAXPAYER DOLLARS that fund their cushy lifestyle that are being curbed by PRESIDENT TRUMP and RETURNED BACK to “we the people”
      As a resident of COMMUNIST N.Y. State (and seeing HOW she “rolls”, “she” is nothing but another corrupt DEMOCOMMUNIST that should be voted OUT. (right along with “king” andrew cuomo and chuck-you schumer and clean up N.Y State of the RAMPANT “government” CORRUPTION,

    • Jim Jones says:

      You are a Commie moron.

    • Bill says:

      Mike you are as big a dumbass as both those bitches put together.

    • Christopher D. says:

      Are we not innocent, until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt? Only with the burden of proof should the accused be found guilty. To accuse someone w/o substantial proof is bearing false witness. Ford should come forward and make her case.

    • Ladycqi says:

      No. The time to investigate was when it happened fool!

    • Emma says:

      BS!!!!
      She is being paid to lie.
      How long has she sat on this BS??!!
      I have been “hurt”
      Not remember details ?!
      Not a chance of forgetting!!!

    • Patricia Gaviglio says:

      How many investigations would satisfy you? He has already been investigated many times for the SCOTUS. Wise up!!

    • Tonja says:

      Totally agree Mike. Something this important to the make up of this country warrants a thorough investigation.

    • Tonja says:

      I totally agree with you Mike. Something that is important to the makeup of this country should be invested thoroughly

    • Chip says:

      She never filed a complaint to the local police like anyone who has been sexually assaulted? Red flag #1 She supposedly sent a letter to Mrs. Frankenstein 6 weeks earlier that she will not allow anyone to see red flag #2 and the only other women who supposedly witnessed the assault, came out yesterday and changed her story,saying she really didn’t remember any assault and the accuser never mentioned anything to her about being held down and groped. Strike three she’s lying!!

    • Bob says:

      How can they investigate this. She does not know what year it happened, where it was, and exactly when it happened. The two people she named as witnesses, said it never happened!!

    • Minoo says:

      Mike –you are giving too much credence to a governmental agency’s efficiency!! A few weeks? Then you have achieved the goal of the Dimms,, because in a few weeks Congress will break for the election and the vote on the nomination would end up being postponed till after the election-The Dimms are hoping that the election will bring a Dimm majority and then we will have 8 justices of the Supreme Court for the next two years, till after the 2020 elections! Surprised that you did not see this happening!!

  54. Haraldur says:

    Gillibrand had this all plant as a strategy to obstruct the Kavanaugh confirmation. To say she believes Ford without having talked or investigating her incompetent accusations is obsurt and shamful. She uses the Stalinist playbook, give me the person and I will accuse him with dirt without having any prove. If the Republican don’t show their backbone against such a accusations, they will loose may voters. These obstructions are a disgraceful and needs to stop.
