    Ford refuses to file a complaint in Maryland, but insist she “be heard”. In other words she wants to tell a story, not file a criminal complaint. Congress doesn’t have time for storytime. No more hearings, VOTE.

        Yes, I wasn’t pleased with Whelan’s revelation.

        It tacitly endorses the accusation, while offering an alibi.

        So now if this guy was out of the country that summer, it indicates Kavanaugh -was- the guy? Just doesn’t seem helpful in the slightest.

        IMO, the lack of details supplied with the accusation are proof that it was a sham.

        No crime existed to accuse the wrong suspect IMO.

        100% EXACTLY

        What this does is give them a plausible-deniability “out” for if/when it all falls apart – so that she doesn’t have to come out looking like a flat-out liar – instead she just “mis-remembered”. It’s a face-saving “card” to be played if needed.

        I don’t care if they do play it. Everything they do is a sh*tshow anyways.

      How so?

      It looks logical, well-researched, and well presented. Whether that other fellow is willing/able to step into the breach and tell what really happened is another question.

      And it could well turn out (based on the tripe in the yearbooks), that the young *cough* lady was trying to pin him.

      Or, if it’s his (OK, parents’) house, maybe Ms. Prynne was somewhere she shouldn’t have been, and one or two lads locked her in to “punish” her, with no untoward activity haven taken place at all.

      Sneaking around in someone else’s house isn’t a great thing to do, especially if the party one is at is in a different room, on a different floor…

        First, there was NO rape. Boy who was drinking got fresh with a girl (drinking?), made advances that were ill-received by the girl, and according to her, she was able to escape into a bathroom. I’ve been in a similar circumstance in HS, but won’t go into the details because the accusation was totally fabricated. Actually, I was the one who keep the girl from being raped by my two friends (yes, we were drinking). The police were involved.

        Anyway, Whelan has put the spotlight on another person who must be presumed innocent until proven guilty. That is my only hang up with the Whelan theory. Think Judge K is probably innocent and the girl is lying.

            Yep. Theatre indeed. I don’t know where anyone got the idea that I said a rape occurred…
            Back in the old days, if someone was sneaking around where they didn’t belong, we’d embarrass them to shame them into not being a sneak. Since the “woman” apparently has no shame, there’s no point in that tactic…

            Most homes don’t have locking interior doors, except for bathrooms. This is a safety measure, in case of fire, or the need to rescue a sleeping person. Only reason I could see to have a lock on a non-bathroom interior door would be something like a den, library, or music room where there are high-value items inside. But that presents other problems…

    I may be wrong but here’s my theory: Whelan and Kavanaugh are sure it’s Garrett. They have tried to get him to own up to it and he won’t. They have now put this out to the public to see if other evidence comes forward or to show Ford the evidence and ask her if she still wants to make this accusation under oath. Your move, Dems….

We are each in a battle that ends in 43 days with a Trump win or a win for the haters that will last for at least 2 years. Nunes will be replaced by Schiff. Maxine will head Finance. Jordan will be out Pelosi in. No MAGA for 2 years. No wall money. No change to immigration. Investigations of corruption stop. Investigations to destroy Trump start. Impeachment begins. The unhinged haters and MSM/Never Trumpers are over joyed, emboldened and mock us unmercifully. This is the REALITY that you can help avoid based on your ACTIONS during the next 43 days.
