Monday Open Thread | Kavanaugh accuser comes forward, details alleged sexual assault

The woman who sent a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein earlier this year accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school during the early 1980s has spoken publicly for the first time to The Washington Post.

The big picture: Christine Blasey Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University, told the Post that she decided to come forward because she felt her “civic responsibility” began “outweighing [her] anguish and terror about retaliation.” Ford does not remember all of the details of the alleged incident — such as the exact time or location — but says she took a lie detector test administered by a former FBI agent in August, which determined she was telling the truth when she said her account of that night was accurate.

      About this Watson guy..

      “..Paul Joseph Watson is an English YouTube personality, radio host, writer and conspiracy theorist. He has been described as ‘alt-right’ by multiple sources, though he does not associate himself with that label.

      Watson’s career emerged through his work for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, for whose website he promoted fake news and conspiracy theories such as the claim that 9/11 was an inside job, the Chemtrail conspiracy theory, the New World Order and the Illuminati.

      London-based Watson is a longtime editor of, and contributor to, Infowars, which has peddled conspiracy theories such as the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre being a hoax, that the 9/11 terror attacks were a false flag, and that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. Watson also co-founded the conspiracy website Prison Planet.

      He is the editor-at-large of InfoWars.com, a publication that promotes conspiracy theories and fake news about American and international politics, and a contributor to Infowars’ talk radio programme The Alex Jones Show, where he occasionally either hosts or co-hosts. Watson has been working on Infowars.com since October 2002…”

      And with Alex Jones finally kicked off most social media …including finally, by that very brave, brave Alt-Right nerd over at Twitter …Jack, it now falls on proud acolyte and surrogate, Mr Watson, to continue to spew and incite and issue the hourly call to arms to fellow Alt-Right crazies that prefer their version of white supremacy served ever so slightly different from that catered by FOX ‘news’ and co … or that seemingly more mainstreamed sort served mushy, through ‘progressive’ media by the likes of Scarborough, Smercornish, Noah Rothman, John Podheretz, Jonah Goldberg etc.

        Bishop Orin Hatch of the land of many wives, is the same guy who vouched for (and supposedly did background checks) on his former staff and serial wife-beater Ron Porter …and also supported that pedo saint of a man, Roy Moore..

        Perverted compulsions that manifest at 17 years old, are not the same as and should not be classified or dismissed as ‘teenage indiscretion’..

        Most 17 year old boys – no matter how raging their hormones – do not attempt to rape 14-15 year old girls …or anyone else for that matter..
