Very clearly, Christine Blasey Ford lied during her time in the spotlight at Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh.
It’s a sort of law that when an accuser, under oath, says a thing was done to her by a named fellow “100%”, as Blasey Ford did yesterday, and then that named fellow, Brett Kavanaugh, the accused, also under oath also states, “100%” he did not…
…one of them lied.
Certain laws of nature are involved here, for when a person says something that is clearly not so, as one of these people did, there are only four possible reasons why; 1) mistake 2) lie, 3) ignorance (stupidity), and 4) delusion.
We can rule out stupidity. And delusion, which while a very possible option in a world where possibly a third of the entire adult population is living in a kind of mass delusion about all sorts of realities, and that delusion most likely externally induced, I tend to also rule it out, because evidence…the sort juries are actually allowed to hear and consider, leans heavily toward a series of events long after the alleged date of the sexual assault, that lead to knowing cognitive awareness. Malice aforethought
She lied because, as Brit Hume of Fox News so ineloquently put it, Bret Kavanaugh had more evidence supporting his denial than did Christine Blasey-Ford in adding weight to her accusation.
I haven’t watched Fox News in several months. Any of it. I’m now addicted the space monsters on Comet Network and the Military History Channel. One of the reasons I stopped was that, since the election almost every element of the media, all political establishment insiders, had begun to lead (or follow, one is never sure) the national Democratic Party, in some of the most exotic plots against the Trump Administration and its very right to exist. known to man.
This began on Day One in February, 2017, and has not just continued unabated, but grown to perilous dimensions, including the rise of a new term in the people’s lexicon, “the deep state”.
This Kavanaugh episode is but a side show to that larger conflict, what the British in India called the Great Game, and Henry Gondorf, a Chicago grifter in the 30s, called the Big Con.
Long story short, for various reasons I suppose, while Fox News would never go along with this Game as played by the rest of the media and its partners in crime in government, neither would they just out-of-hand condemn it. Fox might speak of lies by their competition, and a few politicians, but they would never call them out, never crossing the boundary between “lies and damned lies” as Mark Twain so eloquently pointed out in the 19th Century, when those words alone could cause the drawing of pistols.
To call a man out as “damned liar” was once a big deal. And only this past week I urged members of the Republican Party leadership to do that very thing. I suggested the Republicans throw down on the Dems, warning them that if they brought a knife, we’d bring a gun, Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD).
My prescription was at least partially followed, at least by Sen Lindsay Graham, who said everything to the entitre Democvrat side I wanted Chuck Grassly to say to Diane Feinstein. Lady Di tried to hide under the podium anyway[…]
