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.

      Be careful posting stuff from actual racist Neo-nazi dregs like this Watson guy..

      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, 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 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.

      When you thought Rafael couldn’t be any more callous, weasel-ier, cowardly, smaller.. he goes and does it again..

      A self-loathing man who claims to not speak his father’s native tongue … who won’t defend his wife’s honor …or his similarly awful father’s..

      A lazy, deluded, entitled weasel who’ll stop at nothing – including cozying up to the equally deluded, entitled, weaselly treasonous buffoon, to stay on in perks-rich, cushy gig and stay sucking at the taxpayer teat.. doing nothing but self-serving and self-enriching …

      How do Texas folk think this weaselly, soulless wish-washy opportunist is ever going to look out for them..

    Please God, make Ken Starr go away with his brazenly disingenuous, book-hustling Alt-Right butt..

  3. eliihass says:

    You’ve probably seen the right-wing attempt at smearing Kavanaugh’s victim as being on some sort of revenge blitz.. that has to do with his mother ruling on her parents ‘foreclosed home’.. not true, fam..

    • Liza says:

      Yep. What I been saying about Flake. He can talk but he will always toe the GOP line because he’s thinking of his career after the Senate.

  4. eliihass says:

    How is this evil pos still being paid to opine by any credible news media..? And note the use of ‘us’… does Ari have something to share..

  5. eliihass says:

    And like clockwork, the treasonous buffoon-Russian-asset is declassifying certain FISA documents trumped by treasonous foot soldiers Nunes and Jim Jordan.. Just in time to try to try to change the news narrative and distract and deflect from Kavanaugh..


  6. Liza says:

    Well, don’t know what to say here.

  7. ENOUGH of @SenatorCollins nonsense……………

  8. We need to hear from #Christine Blasey Ford. Postpone The Vote.
