      The smoking gun of perjury on the part of Ms Ford. Prosecutor Mitchell asked what I thought was a strange question,

      “Had – have you ever given tips or advice to somebody who was looking to take a polygraph test?”

      Two pts:
      1) Mitchell already knew about Ford’s boyfriend’s input. Note he became aware of her Sept 16th, 4 days before the hearing and time enough to write his letter.
      2) She knew that Ford did this kind of polygraph teaching, advising for a living. Interns wanting government jobs.

      A good lawyer never asks a question they don’t already know the answer to.

      Note how cogent and organized and logical the ex-boyfriends letter is. Good memory of dates and activities. Apparently, Ms Ford is quite comfortable flying and living in small spaces.

    Lindsey Graham has clarified his remarks which he made on Hannity’s show last night (did it tonight on Hannity, as well). He was talking about forcing a vote on the Kavanaugh nomination and making Red State Dem senators defend “no” votes on Kavanaugh for the 2018 midterms.

    Relevant section of the video starts at about 2:45 or so

    We had a discussion last night about whether or not Graham meant (when he said that Kavanaugh could fall one vote short in the final vote) he wanted a vote to occur, or whether he meant that the nomination would be pulled and there would be no vote.

    Tonight he seems to indicate that he means to have a vote. Good. That’s the only intelligent strategy I can see as relates to the “one vote short” scenario he addressed last night. If Kavanaugh goes down now, then you must try to extract an electoral price for that and not allow people the cover of not having to vote in the first place.

      Christine Blasey Ford perhaps should thank the FBI, Grassley and the Senate investigators that they have not asked to interview her….and perhaps think about firing her lawyers.

        I think the same. More talk with the FBI will just expose her to more charges as she will not keep her story straight and will make more “mistakes”/lies.

        she was interviewed by the Committee, under oath, on nation-wide TV with a prosecutor asking questions, in addition to the Committee members. There’s no need for an interview, they have her testimony.

    Latest news feed is Trump mocking Ford tonite. Some claiming lock her up chant (was for Ford when obviously a reference to Hillary). Probably a bad tactical move.

      Yeah, Trump has no clue, you should tell him how to do this. /S

      It doesn’t matter what President Donald J. Trump does. The cultural Marxist democrat media will always find a way to twist the truth to try to make him look bad to the low information public.

      His most brilliant tactic is attacking the media repeatedly, especially when the lies that they are disseminating are the most obviously untrue. I know people who aren’t Trump supporters that are getting really sick of the bias and lies of the media. It will be impossible to defeat the democrats unless the media is exposed, reformed or destroyed. They are, in effect, the democrat party. If the media wasn’t so biased, the democrat party would disappear almost overnight.

    Everyone keeps pushing pres Trump to wait to confront China until Pres Trump has the allies with us.
    People are soooo stupid.

    Last week at the U.N., the U.S. joined with the EU, Japan, Mexico and Canada – 32 countries – and signed an agreement to take on China and start enforcing the rules for China. Larry Kudlow and Amb Robert Lighthizer accomplished this.

    “Larry Kudlow: Our “Trade Coalition of the Willing”—32 democracies—signed a tripartite agreement against all the Chinese missteps of illegal protections, tech transfers, tariffs, IP theft; first time such a document has been signed.”

    Larry Kudlow explained this tonight on the John Batchelor Show.

    These people are so stupid. Pres Trump is already many steps ahead of the chattering classes. They just cannot keep up.

      Wow, I LIKE that terminology;
      “Coalition of the willing”, direct reference to Iraq war, a recognition that this battle with China is, in fact, a WAR!
      South China sea disputes, Trade imbalances, election meddling, corruption of our and other countries governments, ALL the attacks on DJT, the Clanton foundation, it ALL points to CHINA.
      DJT just LOVES Chairman Xi, lol!

    As I am all knowing and all seeing, I predict everyone with a smartphone will receive a text message at exactly 2:20 pm, EST, from President Trump. He will alert us to something of major importance.

    heh, heh

    On the tax story which is bunk…they have been investigating it for a year with an documentary team from Showtime. The special will air this Sunday. They think we are all fools…they are incredibly stupid. What a dirty October Surprise trick but the people will not care. They keep overplaying their hand. We will win and this story will be proven to not hurt the President. https://thehill.com/homenews/media/409595-showtime-to-air-documentary-on-nyt-trump-investigation

    Gotta say, I watched the Diamond/Silk after rally show. It was EXCELLENT!

    Many good bits, but especially loved their tips for men, for their protection.
    (From false accusations)
    Wear a whistle, around your neck, so you can draw people’s attention to what’s happening.
    Travel in large groups, and NEVER alone, etc.
    Vote RIGHT, so you won’t get left.
    All Great material!


  23. There is additional information online (link below) about the “best friend”, Monica L McLean, who Ford coached on how to take a polygraph. Obvious evidence of perjury from Ford.

    Meanwhile, McLean is no angel herself. Worked for DOJ for 24 years and left abruptly after Pres. Trump won in late 2016. There is other somewhat confusing detail of McLean’s connections to other swamp-crats, some of whom may be involved in nefarious work. If that is real, I suspect we’ll hear more.

    In any case, Ford’s perjury is plenty of WOW from this letter today.
