A video from Tim Pool on the media covering up for Kavanaugh's false accusers:



(He does go off on a tangent towards the end about something else).

PS: I noticed something interesting in the vid.
Notice how during the video, as he is reading snippets from the article, every time he comes to a point where the news article uses the word "Rape". Tim substitutes the word "Assault".

Odd, isn't it.

While I don't know for certain WHY he is doing this, my hunch is that YT has some sort of automated filter in their programming that will flag a video for review if the word "Rape" is used in a video. A video flagged for review, may be delayed in the notification process to those subscribed to it, which will impact the number of people watching the video (which results in reduced income to the YT poster). It may also be demonetized, which again results in reduced income. YT has gotten to the point where their automated filtering technology is actually discouraging people from reading words in news articles. It forces people to use synonyms so as not to run afoul of YT's programmed filtering.
How screwed up is that?

7 Top Takeaways From Grassley’s Report On Brett Kavanaugh’s Accusers

The Senate Judiciary Committee report included several new tidbits that further expose the fraudulent nature of the claims of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh.

Click the link above for the details.

The big one (IMHO is #7:

7. Grassley Isn’t Done

Although Grassley’s report provided a detailed synopsis of the months-long investigation, and exposed several new facts previously unreported (or underreported), the most significant revelation from the weekend release is that the investigation continues.


People should understand that 'making shit up and submitting it to Congress' is not acceptable, and will not go away simply because the hearings have ended.

Hopefully, by the time the next hearings come up for SCOTUS, Michael Avennati will be doing time in prison.

Interesting story from the Senate Judicial Committee report.

Senate Report Reveals Christine Blasey Ford Had an Encounter Similar to Her Kavanaugh Claim

A Senate Judiciary Committee report released Saturday revealed that committee investigators interviewed a man who described a sexual encounter with Christine Blasey Ford that shared similarities to the one she claimed she had with Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh.
According to the report, a man — whose name is redacted — told committee investigators in an interview on September 26, 2018, that when he was a 19-year-old college student, he had visited D.C. over spring break and kissed a girl he believes was Christine Blasey Ford. According to the report:

He said that the kiss happened in the bedroom of a house which was about a 15-to 20 minute walk from the Van Ness Metro, that Dr. Ford was wearing a swimsuit under her clothing, and that the kissing ended when a friend jumped on them as a joke. [Redacted] said that the woman initiated the kissing and that he did not force himself on her.

The man’s description of his encounter with Ford is similar to the one Ford alleged she had with Kavanaugh in three ways.

First, the man said the incident took place in the bedroom of a house that was near the Van Ness Metro station, which is located in Northwest Washington, DC, near the border of Montgomery County, Maryland. Ford claimed the incident with Kavanaugh took place in a bedroom of a house in Montgomery County.



Second, the man said Ford was wearing a swimsuit underneath her clothing, which Ford claimed was also the case in the Kavanaugh incident. Ford’s detail of wearing a one-piece bathing suit was so specific that Bustle recently dedicated a post to it titled, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s One-Piece Swimsuit.”

Third, the man said the kissing between him and Ford ended when a friend jumped on them as a joke. Ford claimed that with Kavanaugh, his friend Mark Judge had jumped on them, allowing her to escape.

Ford first publicly spoke about her allegations against Kavanaugh to the Washington Post on September 16, 2018, including the detail about wearing a one-piece bathing suit underneath her clothing. According to the Post:

Speaking publicly for the first time, Ford said that one summer in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a friend — both “stumbling drunk,” Ford alleges — corralled her into a bedroom during a gathering of teenagers at a house in Montgomery County.

While his friend watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth.



“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” said Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in northern California. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”

Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending all three tumbling. She said she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house.

The report also revealed that another man, whose name is also redacted, said that during that the summer of 1982, he had attended a house party where he “kissed and made out with a woman he met who he believes could have been Dr. Ford. [Redacted] said that based on old photographs of Justice Kavanaugh he has seen on the news, he believes the two of them share a similar appearance.”

The report includes the two men’s summaries but does not comment on whether Ford may have confused or mistaken one of the men’s identities for Kavanaugh.



The report said that the committee conducted interviews with more than 40 individuals with information relating to allegations against Kavanaugh.

“Committee investigators found no witness who could provide any verifiable evidence to support any of the allegations brought against Justice Kavanaugh,” it said.

The report also revealed the committee has recommended charges against one accuser, Julie Swetnick, her lawyer Michael Avenatti, a man in Rhode Island, and a woman who claimed to have submitted an anonymous letter accusing Kavanaugh of rape, for knowingly providing materially false statements and obstruction of a congressional investigation.

In addition, the committee is investigating whether a friend of Ford and former FBI official Monica McLean, had tried to tamper with witness testimony by trying to persuade another friend of Ford, Leland Keyser, to change her testimony.

I have not read, nor even skimmed the report yet.

BUT, Sen. Grassley is not empowered to levy criminal charges against anyone---it's outside his job description.

I presume the report summarizes and details issues of concern and perhaps asks the Dept. of Justice to look into them.

Yeah, I guess so. Well maybe if there is probable cause, real criminal investigations will be opened and charges, and indictments can follow.

It is honestly a bit puzzling that the Congress has no power to charge criminal wrongdoing, or at least to charge perjury. If that is entirely true, it means that: one can lie to Congressional committees with the expectation that the consequences will be at minimum, tangled into inter-departmental requests, and possibly swept aside depending on partisan divisions in the departments. DOJ is pretty much a Federal hiring entity for most jobs I think isn't it? (investigators and most prosecutors I would think). It is only the very tip top of that organization which are Executive Branch appointees and direct reports to the President (meaning he can tell them to resign or fire them).

Getting "rid" of partisan Federal employees is, I reckon, NOT an easy task, as the Federal system for reviewing and hiring for positions is extraordinarily intricate and laced with non-discrimination safeguards, with "discrimination" taken in the broadest possible sense. I could see Hussein's talent for "grass roots" organizing (political commissar) having been put to great effect during the eight years he reigned in order to stack as many protected job roles in the DOJ with "minorities" or other special interest entities which the Federal system would make even difficulty for Trump or his appointee to jettison in the absence of clear evidence of malfeasance.

I suspect that Congress was intentionally not given that power when the Founding Fathers designed our government...all part of “checks and balances”.

It may lead at times to “inefficiency” but it also helps minimize the potential tyranny that may result from giving too much power to any one person or branch of government.

I'm sure that is intentional.

Imagine the chaos to have two arms of government prosecuting each other. :lol: We would be a Banana Republic with F-22's.
