Chairman Grassley Extends Final Deadline “10:00pm Tonight”…

WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier today offered to move next week’s hearing to receive testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh to Wednesday, in order to accommodate one of several requests made by Ford’s legal team. The Committee also offered to accommodate certain other terms while respecting fairness, due process and the senators’ ability to fulfill their constitutional duties.

Chairman Grassley issued the following statement:

“Despite the fact that the July 30th letter remains hidden, my committee has been investigating the allegations and has heard from multiple witnesses since Sunday. Ms. Katz has discussed Dr. Ford’s allegations in numerous media interviews and said on TV Monday morning that Dr. Ford wants to share her account with the Senate Judiciary Committee. It’s Friday night and nothing’s been agreed to despite our extensive efforts to make testimony possible,” Grassley said. “I’m extending the deadline for response yet again to 10 o’clock this evening. I’m providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford’s attorneys don’t respond or Dr. Ford decides not to testify. In the event that we can come to a reasonable resolution as I’ve been seeking all week, then I will postpone the committee vote to accommodate her testimony. We cannot continue to delay.”

The chairman issued a notice of a committee executive business meeting, at which the committee can vote on the nomination of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States.  (read more)

    Blasey Ford is lying about not being able to fly (for mental reasons.)
    She was accidentally outed on that by a former classmate, on a long puff piece by the New York Slimes on September 19.
    I read that on a comment which did not offer a link, at another website.
    So I went looking for the article. It took me all of 30 seconds to find it. Here it is:
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2018/09/19/us/politics/christine-blasey-ford-brett-kavanaugh-allegations.amp.html
    I know, it is the Slimes. To avoid nausea, scroll down through the article until you pass the picture of the young Judge Cavanaugh.
    Interesting… she did an internship in Hawaii!!!
    So how did she get there and back? By boat, by air, or did she swim over 😡😡😡???
    I am sure she did not swim over.
    That leaves two options, boat or air.
    Grassley needs to demand proof of how she got to Hawaii and back.
    For those who do not want to give the Slimes any clicks, I will copy and paste the relevant paragraph on my next post.

    There should be no more of this nonsense. We all see what is happening here. The more liberal activist lawyers that come onto her team, the more outrageous this gets.

    That said, I think Grassley has bent over backwards to try to accommodate these people, who care nothing about fairness and truth and protecting the “victim” here. She has lost control of this fiasco …. wonder how she feels about that?

      If those female senators are so intent on hearing her out, then they should fly out there to CA and hear her out. Take video or tape. Or transcribe it. Then they will have heard her. Has anybody even seen this accuser? How about the alleged letter she allegedly wrote?

      This plot is so transparent that any thinking (and intellectually honest) person should be able to easily see through it. The media bias and complicity is also obvious. They paint the Republicans as the unreasonable ones, as if it’s reasonable to demand that hundreds of years of jurisprudence be turned on its head.

      To them, he’s guilty until he proves he’s innocent. He can’t even be in the room with her, much less confront this witness against him. He’s supposed to go first. (The media has actually reported that to make her go first gives him an “advantage.”)

      Every trial across this country begins with the prosecution first, then the defense last, for obvious reasons. How else does someone rebut the charges? The court sets the rules, not the plaintiff. She also has demanded that the (male) senators question her, not a lawyer. (That one’s easy to see through.)

      This woman’s lawyers want to set all the rules. All demands go against how our system has worked for hundreds of years. Yet the media portray the Republicans as bullies who demand unreasonable things.

    This extension does not hurt the timeline for confirmation next week, although it really pisses me off. It is to appease Flake and the women Senators whose votes they need.

    Testimony Wednesday — Committee Vote Thursday — Full Senate Vote Friday.
    This seats the Judge in time for the new session of the Supreme Court.

    So, the 24 hour extension is meaningless as far as next weeks schedule because Grassley had already conceded to the testimony meeting being held on Wednesday (instead of Monday). Thus, the 24 hr. extension looks good optically in order to receive the “yes” or “no” from Ford and her dyke lawyer. Yes this is BS, and this better be the last damn extension, although Grassley could extend into Sunday and not effect next weeks confirmation schedule.

    Again, none of this would be taking place if not for Flake and the women on the fence! Pete C.

    We are tired of being bullied by the Left !

    ” From Bork, to Thomas, to Alito, to Kavanaugh, these are all horror stories of destroying the lives of innocents with grotesque charges. All done at the hands of Democrats.
    Families weeping, Mrs. Alito running from the hearing chamber in tears after Ted Kennedy kept calling her husband a racist.
    Yet, Sotomayor – who is a terrible steward of the Constitution and the last person who should be on the Court was afforded every courtesy, and there was no looking at her video rentals, and her casual statements she made in high school, who her sex partners were, even her hard left credentials got a light hand. None of their lopsided judges came close to these nightmares of smearing and life crippling attacks that Republican judges have had to sustain. True – Merrick Garland got passed over, but that was a rule Joe Biden laid down years ago – and Garland was not mutilated in an orgy of hate.
    In fact when Obama prayed at the alter of Rev. Wright for 20 years, the Black Himmler who spewed a vicious racist creed saying that white people are evil due to their skin color, – no one called him on that – except maybe Sean Hannity. McCain certainly didn’t. It should have been brought up every day. What kind of person goes to a psychotic monster like Wright for spiritual guidance. It was unconscionable that no one was called to account.
    We treat their monsters like people, and they treat our people like monsters.
    Look at this Kavanaugh case, it has the familiar stench of the of the Duke LaCrosse hoax, the Univ of Virginia-Rolling Stone rape hoax, even the Sharpton Tawana Brawley debacle. The person refuses to go on the record, the person refuses to go under oath. Republicans are still acting like gentlemen when the whole thing smells of a phony setup. Face the facts, her complaints don’t even sound like a crime, someone tried to make out with her at a drunken high school party and got fresh, and then fell down and ran away.
    Kavanaugh immediately denied under oath that he did this, accepting the penalty of prison. (I believe him) She has no police report, no corroboration, no basic details of the house, the date, the time,… and she went to a high school that celebrated drunken debauchery in their year book – so let’s not act surprised and shocked. Yet she has been treated with kid gloves. It has been lopsided, and the media quickly joins in with their Democrat masters, since they are the house organ.
    This case should have been tried privately back in July and then dismissed when the accuser would not testify under oath, privately. This was a planned IED of hate, set to go off to delay the vote, and stop the democratic process.
    I view all this hate as one sided – and it has come from the Left.” This was posted this morning by Titus-Maximus over at Free Republic

    So why is it so hard for Ford and her dyke attorney to decide “yes” or “no” on whether to testify? We all know the answer—because she is afraid to fly!!! Or is it because she is lying and certain her BS will be exposed?

    We can only hope that because of the delay, the Republicans have gathered corroborating evidence to expose her potential perjury. Ford knows she lying, but she doesn’t know what others have found—was she able to scrub everything sufficiently??? Pete C.

      Nice thought but it’s a forlorn hope with little possibility of actually occurring *unless* enough CTH persons, and others on the web, have Twittered/emailed/etc the links (far above in this thread) about Ford’s party past and Dewey Beach and other places to Grassley and other members of the Committee…

      ….and those members actually clicked on and read the links.

      This is where Repubs suck: at getting the message out via the media. The R’s should’ve gone on Fox with the 1982-1984 yearbook articles (via the “Cult of” website), with the Dewey Beach articles, and pounded over and over again that Ford was a predatory party girl in high school. And that Kavanaugh’s mother oversaw the foreclosure against Ford’s parents, which means Ford has a big axe to grind. THAT’S the message the public needs to hear. That’s the message that’s a COUNTERPUNCH to the Dem’s false narrative that Ford’s a “victim”.

      R’s need to make Kavanaugh the victim by showing Ford’s past and using it to make her into the bad actor/predator.

    GRASSLEY FOLDS *AGAIN*!

    This guy has no integrity or honor. He should be screaming for the alleged “July letter” *and* the date stamped envelope it was mailed in.

    He should be *demanding* Ford go first at any hearing. The prosecution *always* goes first. Grassley should tell Katz’ if Ford doesn’t go first, she can go to hell.

    Where are the men with integrity, honor, balls, and guts in this mess!?!?! This being nice crap doesn’t work. Dems are like the Japs in WWII; fanatics who’ll fight to the end for a lost cause, damn the collateral damage.

    I’m sick and tired of R’s rolling over and giving up without a fight. This is when the wall and cartridge appears attractive, even if impossible and wrong.

    Excerpt from link above:
    —————————–
    The Senate Judiciary Committee has given Ford’s attorneys a deadline of 2:30 p.m. ET Saturday to respond with their decision, a committee source confirmed to CNN.

    I just granted another extension to Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed w the statement she made last week to testify to the senate She shld decide so we can move on I want to hear her. I hope u understand. It’s not my normal approach to b indecisive

    Feinstein’s statement quoted in CNN article is excellent example of Democrat’s skill at perverting the truth by interweaving lies into the matter:
    —————————————————-
    “It’s clear that Republicans have learned nothing over the last 27 years. Bullying a survivor of attempted rape in order to confirm a nominee — particularly at a time when she’s receiving death threats — is an extreme abuse of power,” Feinstein said in a statement. “I’m shocked and appalled by the Republicans’ refusal to wait 24 hours for a hearing and instead rush forward with a vote on Monday. From the outset Republicans have tried to push through this nomination at all costs.”

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/21/politics/kavanaugh-ford-senate-judiciary-hearing/index.html
    —————-

    Many perversions of truth in this statement:

    – Feinstein falsely and without proof convicts Kavanaugh of attempted rape,
    – Feinstein claims Ford received death threats but provides no proof,
    – Feinstein deliberately, skillfully, and falsely mischaracterizes the Committee’s request to interview Ford in a manner that’s fair to Kavanaugh and Ford, as “bullying”,
    – Feinstein deliberately, skillfully, and falsely accuses the Committee of “abuse of power”,
    – Feinstein falsely claims the Committee has “tried to push through this nomination at all costs” when in reality the Committee has simply followed the standard procedure for affirming a SCOTUS nomination.
    ———————-

    Millions of brain dead, robotic, stupid Americans will accept everything Feinstein says as truth beyond reproach. These dangerous parasites will be outraged if/when Kavanaugh is approved. Their outrage – carefully planted, watered, and cultivated by Dems lying schemes – will strongly motivate them to vote in Nov.

    THUS, it becomes clear the ultimate goal of Feinstein’s lying scheme is to MOTIVATE DEMS TO VOTE. Except for the duplicity of the scheme, it’s a brilliant tactic to win at all costs. Destroying Kavanaugh’s reputation is icing on the cake for the Dems.
    ————————–

    Here’s the ONE QUESTION R’s should ask on TV everywhere:
    “WHERE WAS FEINSTEIN’S VOICE FOR ALL OF BILL CLINTON’S RAPE VICTIMS?”

    R’s should compare Dems current furor and angst over Ford’s allegations to Dems response to Bill Clinton’s rape and sexual assault victims. At that time Dems called Bill Clinton’s victims:

    – Liars,
    – Mistaken about what happened,
    – Mistaken about who assaulted/raped them,
    – Gold diggers,
    – Women of loose morals with checkered past,
    – Women with mental problems.

    R’s should be saying this in TV:
    ————————————–
    We will agree to the FBI investigating Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh on the following conditions:

    – The FBI also investigate the allegations of (insert names of all Bill Clinton’s victims here) that they were raped and/or sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton,
    – The FBI also investigate the same victim’s claims they were threatened into silence by Hillary Clinton,
    – The FBI allow Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes, and two other members of Congress the Committee shall select, to receive daily updates, including documents, recordings, etc of the FBI investigation into Bill Clinton’s multiple rapes and sexual assaults.
    R’s should make media and Congress’s

    I believe that this will work against the Democrats and the RINOs beyond anything they ever thought could happen. They have seen “Cold Anger” in action when President Trump won the election. As voters see the difference between President Trump who cares about the country and all of the others who just lined their own pockets while destroying our country, minds are changing.

    This is causing a lot of the Democrat and RINO voters to look at themselves. They are beginning to wonder why they are supposed to be supporting the right for Democrats like Bill Clinton to rape women but get hysterical over the possibility that almost 40 years ago a teenage boy may possibly have made an awkward pass at a known slut according to her own high school yearbooks of 1982, 83 and 84.

    President Trump has a track record now and the middle class is coming back strong. Now we are dealing with facts and not just hopes.

    Let Soros, the MSM, the US Chamber of Commerce, the big banks, the tech Gods of the Universe and China spend all of their money on ads that demonize President Trump and his supporters. They can spend billions. This is going to be a bigger investment than the usual Presidential elections.

    When all is said and done, people will quietly go to the polls and vote the Democrats out of office in every race on the ticket. This is a huge grass roots movement. It does not require propaganda that costs a lot of money. Elections are decided by very few voters. When we turn out in huge numbers, they really can’t beat us because there are not enough Communists, illegals and dead people to outnumber us.

    We can also have our own exit polls because the law against it is no longer in effect since the Carter appointee District Judge Dickinson R. Debevoise, who, even after he retired, returned every year for the sole purpose of renewing his 1982 order for another year. Debevoise died in August 2015. The consent Decree remained in effect until an Obama appointed judge nullified it in January of 2018.

      Elizabeth;

      Thanks for an inspiring post. I’d like to believe that cold anger is enough to turn out tens of millions of R voters in 5 weeks. I’d like to believe that what drove voters to elect Trump will drive them to vote R in Nov.

      But the fact remains that R’s are terrible at messaging, advertising, and promoting their brand. We can’t rely on SD and CTH alone to remove the blinders from American’s eyes and expose them to the truth. If we could somehow, some way, get the info that SD shares with us, and that other doggedly determined investigative journalists bring us, to the public eye, I believe voter turnout for R’s would be much higher than without that info being publicly shared.

        Boots, That is exactly why President Trump won. His rally’s are the best thing we have going for us. The energy level is so high and so positive that when you listen to anyone who is against President Trump, they drain energy like they are going down the swamp drain already.
        People line up for President Trump and wait for hours just to see him even if they can’t get inside. It is about us and not just about him. What is happening really is a movement and no amount of money in the world can buy it. It is not about money, it is about getting our lives back.

    I would like to see proof of life in regard to Christine Ford. One picture that is akin to stock photography and statements made by third parties, in my opinion, constitutes fiction. I feel at this point that all this is a scripted production … a con.
    All the articles, commentary, etc. are fill ins and nothing more.
    Let me say, just for the sake of argument, that this person is real. The dynamic I have objectively observed so far, would make Ms Ford the aggressor/perpetrator with Judge Kavanaugh being the target (victim). All that has gone with this, commentary, posturing, blame, deflection (few of many terms/actions) reminds me of group abuse dynamic/behavior(s).
    The preponderence of “I believe …..” statements say nothing but what each specific individual believes … period. Well, Ok . That is what you believe. And, your point(s)?
    In my opinion, Judge Kavanaugh’s statement of denial is simple, uncluttered, and rational.
    Sen. Grassley and the participating committee members have followed the rules and have gone beyond what has been required.
    Right now, I don’t see any hearing happening with the exception of moving Judge Kavanaugh through committee as previously scheduled.

    So, they postponed the hearing but I didn’t see anywhere that they postponed the confirmation. Is that correct?

    I’ve read a couple of posts here stating that if the vote in the Judiciary Commitee does not happen by the end of next week, it’s over. Scary, so I went looking for info.
    My understanding from listening to Jay Sekulow’s podcast yesterday and from reading the article attached is that there is no next week deadline. He won’t be seated by October 1st, but can still be seated. Jay Sekulow’s group estimated him being seated on October 3rd if the Blakey-Ford testimony is Wednesday.
    Once the Judiciary Committee votes to recommend to the Senate, the average is 8 days until confirmation. Floor debate for 2 days, then a cloture motion vote, which if passed limits debate to a max of 30 hrs. For Justice Gorsuch, cloture motion filed on April 4, McConnell ruled to eliminate to a filibuster on April 6 and the confirmation vote was April 7.

    it’s probably not even important at this stage but it seems odd that Ford has the notes from her therapy session regarding this ‘incident’. Was it a one time session or did the psychologist rate this as the underlying reason for marriage & life probs?

    Did she/he give Ford these notes as a professional courtesy so Ford could bring Kavanaugh down?
    There seems to be something off here….would a therapist give you or I sections of HIPPA protected therapy notes so that we could flaunt them in front of someone we felt wronged us?

    Mr. Grassley’s own words: “…I feel like I’m playing 2nd trombone in the judiciary orchestra and Schumer is the conductor.” You make me want to vomit.. With those words, pick up your bag and go home. You should resign immediately. All of you are spineless. You’ve sold all of us out — but, more importantly, you’ve allowed a good man, and his family, to be summarily destroyed. All of you…..Rs, Ds, and independents…go straight to hell!!!!
