Marathon Man Newz / Re: 600 Yale Women In Support of 2nd Kavanaugh Accuser
« Last post by Eddie on Today at 02:11:25 PM »
No, actually this is different.

Both these alleged incidents supposedly happened in public circumstances. People close to Ford have stated she never even mentioned it to them at the time. She didn't get raped, just groped by some blind drunk kid in her social circle.  Kavanaugh? Who knows?   I am willing to believe she thinks it was Kavanaugh. So what.

The Ramirez woman at Yale has no corroborating witnesses either. Not one, although there were suppsed to be lots of people there in the dorm.

Somebody is going to come forward now and talk about a culture of "gang rape" that was prevalent in that social circle. Let's see if it's more than the kind of general stuff you were saying, prep-school brats are self-centered assholes. We all know that's true. Let's hear from all the gang rape victims. I'm guessing that part won't be forthcoming.

Renate (the girl everyone bragged they screwed in the yearbook) says Kavanaugh never even kissed her. He says he did. Who cares. It's ancient history.

It's all very thin and questionable.

Kavanaugh's freshman college roommate has turned on him.

He says "There is more and more evidence coming out." Except the only thing that is REALLY coming out is more accusations, some of which are still completely anonymous as of now.

There is NO evidence being offered that I've seen other than unsubstantiated accusations. But as more people pile on, this is how the public perceives it. More accusers must mean he's guilty.

It's FaceBook Justice.

"Like" this comment if you think Kavanaugh is a douchebag.


You're never going to get absolute proof of stuff like this that happened decades ago and all you have are some witnesses.  What you do have though is corroboration, it increases the probability that Kav is lying.

I will say though that going after people for stuff they did decades ago is a bothersome problem.  There should be some form of a Statute of Limitations on stuff more than say 20 years old.

RE

So far there is NO witness willing to corroborate anything. Not a single one willing to go under oath and swear they saw Kavanaugh do so much as give his girl friend a hickey. Not a single soul.

Let's see if any do come forward before we make up our minds. I can be convinced, just not by this kind of shoddy character- assassination-by-media. This stuff stinks to high heaven.

If evidence is out there, lets see it.

There's almost never any witnesses to a rape besides the perp and the victim.  It happens behind closed doors.  It comes down to whose story do you believe?

A gang rape is a different story, since there are multiple perps.  However, they are not going to admit it happened unless given immunity from prosecution.  But right now nobody is being prosecuted for anything, it's just a confirmation hearing.  The committee simply has to decide whose story they wanna believe, and that of course is political.  Repugnants want to believe Kav, Demodopes want to believe the victims.

Media personalities, Political figures and the mega-rich are always under the microscope and the media loves a juicy story, so it's going to get plastered on the front page of every media outlet.  Does social media exacerbate this problem?  Yes it does, but it's not a new problem.  Politicians have been taken down by sex scandals back to time immemorial.  See Britain for this and their newzpapers.

Significant Evidence of Gang Rape. That WOULD be a significant thing...if it were true. This article makes it sound like there is evidence.

In fact, it's just an allegation by Stormy Daniels' slimeball lawyer Michael Avenatti. We'll see.

He SAYS he will present individuals with the evidence. I'm sorry to see high profile journalists like the Martens giving credence to these (so far) completely unsubstantiated allegations. It's interesting what is allowed to go to press in Wall Street On Parade.

It’s Now Three Women Accusing Kavanaugh with “Significant Evidence” of Gang Rape
By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: September 24, 2018 ~

Brett Kavanaugh
Brett Kavanaugh

Yesterday, two of the most trusted reporters in America, Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer of The New Yorker, reported that Senate Democrats are investigating a second sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The second charge comes from a woman who attended Yale University when Kavanaugh was a freshman there in the 1983-84 school year. The women, Deborah Ramirez, told the reporters that “she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.”

Like Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when she was 15 and he was 17, Ramirez is also calling for the FBI to investigate the incident. Dr. Ford, a professor in clinical psychology in California, is expected to testify this coming Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee in a public hearing.

Former Federal prosecutors have been regularly appearing on news programs stating that while investigating sexual assault is not the role of the FBI, re-opening the background check that it did on Brett Kavanaugh is not only necessary, but critically needed, under the circumstances. Neither Chuck Grassley, the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee that is conducting the confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh, nor the White House that requested the original background check, have been willing to re-open the FBI’s investigation into Kavanaugh – leading millions of Americans to lose faith in the process of putting a judge in a lifetime position on the highest court in the nation.

Farrow and Mayer note that by his freshman year at Yale, “Kavanaugh was eighteen, and legally an adult.” If the Ramirez allegation is true, that would mean that Kavanaugh perjured himself before the Senate Judiciary Committee write the reporters because he “swore under oath that as a legal adult he had never ‘committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature.’ ”

While The New Yorker report could not find eyewitnesses who would confirm the Ramirez allegation, a classmate who was not present when the alleged assault happened told the reporters that he was “ ‘one hundred per cent sure’ ” that he had been told either on the evening of the incident or “in the next day or two” that “Kavanaugh was the student who exposed himself to Ramirez.”

Kavanaugh issued a statement saying:

“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name — and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building — against these last-minute allegations.”

Also yesterday, Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing Stormy Daniels, the woman to whom Donald Trump paid $130,000 in hush money over an alleged affair, tweeted this:

“I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge. We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify. The nomination must be withdrawn.”

Avenatti also tweeted that the woman he represents is not Ramirez.

Mark Judge is the pal of Kavanaugh whom Dr. Ford identified as being present in the room at the time Kavanaugh assaulted her. Judge has said he has no memory of the incident and declined to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Grassley, thus far, has refused to subpoena Judge’s testimony despite growing demands that he do so.

Avenatti also tweeted the contents of emails between himself and Mike Davis, the Senate Judiciary Committee’s chief counsel for nominations. In one email dated 6:06 p.m. last evening, Avenatti told Davis the following:

“…We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the early 1980s during which Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them. There are multiple witnesses that will corroborate these facts and each of them must be called to testify publicly…Please note that we will provide additional evidence relating to the above conduct both to the Committee and the American public in the coming days.”

In an interview with Politico that was published just before midnight last evening, Avenatti said that he represents “a group of individuals” one of whom he would describe as a victim, who will corroborate allegations against Kavanaugh and Judge. Avenatti also told the publication that the female accuser “will likely appear on camera for an interview” before she testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

It’s going to be difficult for the Senate Judiciary Committee not to take Avenatti’s statement seriously. For weeks before the facts emerged to substantiate Avenatti’s allegations against Trump, Avenatti appeared on multiple cable news programs stating that Donald Trump had paid hush money to multiple women and that Michael Cohen, Trump’s long-time attorney, would eventually flip on Trump.

Kavanaugh and Judge were classmates at Georgetown Preparatory School when the alleged attack on Dr. Ford occurred in a private home with no adult supervision present. Ford attended Holton-Arms School, not far from Georgetown Prep. Judge is now a writer who in a 2015 article wrote that “if that man is any kind of man, he’ll allow himself to feel the awesome power, the wonderful beauty, of uncontrollable male passion.” On his Georgetown Prep yearbook page, he featured a quotation from playwright Noel Coward, which appeared to endorse violence toward women: “Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs” he wrote.

Farrow and Mayer also report in yesterday’s New Yorker article that a woman who was in a three-year relationship with Judge, Elizabeth Rasor, told them that Judge had told her of “an incident that involved him and other boys taking turns having sex with a drunk woman. Rasor said that Judge seemed to regard it as fully consensual. She said that Judge did not name others involved in the incident, and she has no knowledge that Kavanaugh participated.” Judge denied the allegation through his attorney.

Frostbite Falls Newz / I Passed the DHS Test!

My Passport arrived today in the mail!
 :multiplespotting:

Very fast, less than 3 weeks.  It was a renewal though, not a new passport.

I now have the Full Set of Goobermint ID Cards and can start making my travel plans for October.  DHS obviously does not yet consider me a threat to National Security.  The Diner is still flying under the radar.

I also resolved most of my Lost Wallet Worries.  I now have TWO wallets, one which I use every day and just has one bank card, cash for a couple of days if the card doesn't work and a COPY of my D/L.  I scanned it in and then printed it off, and once slipped behind the plastic window of my wallet you can't tell the difference from the original even though it is paper.  Of course if you pull it out you would know, but most of the time in stores checking your age you don't have to pull it out, just flash it.  It worked the one time I have had to do that since coming up with the idea.

My OTHER wallet has the rest of my bank cards, the REAL D/L and a lot more CASH.  Now also the Passport Card.  This wallet is the kind with a chain which I hook around my belt and makes it impossible for the wallet to bounce out of my pocket while driving the cripple cart.  I also about never pull it out since the daily wallet fulfills most of my needs.  So I can't forget it at a store or even misplace it at home since it is always attached to my person, even while sleeping. The only time it comes out is at doctor's offices where they want to make a copy of your D/L on your first visit or when travelling and TSA wants to see the passport card.  I also got the full booklet passport in case I want to travel somewhere beyond Mexico & Canada, although at the moment no plans for that.

Having my renewed D/L and my Passport is a big relief for me.  I fretted over this for months knowing they were both expiring.  I am a worry wart this way. Now I should be good until I am pushing up daisies.  :icon_sunny:

Kavanaugh's freshman roommate: "I believe Debbie"
From CNN's MJ Lee

James Roche, Brett Kavanaugh’s freshman year roommate at Yale, said he was good friends with Deborah Ramirez, Kavanaugh's second accuser, and said he believes her.

“There is more and more evidence coming out,” Roche told CNN. “My hope is just that people will take a deeper look.”

He added: “I believe Debbie.”

He also reiterated that he is not political, and, “I don’t want to attack Brett.”

Roche declined to say more beyond the statement below. He would not answer questions about why he described Kavanaugh as “aggressive and belligerent” when drunk, or why he said he could believe Kavanaugh and his social circle would have been capable of the behavior Ramirez described.

Here's Roche's full statement:

I was Brett Kavanaugh’s roommate at Yale University in the Fall of 1983. We shared a two-bedroom unit in the basement of Lawrence Hall on the Old Campus. Despite our living conditions, Brett and I did not socialize beyond the first few days of freshman year. We talked at night as freshman roommates do and I would see him as he returned from nights out with his friends. It is from this experience that I concluded that although Brett was normally reserved, he was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk. I did not observe the specific incident in question, but I do remember Brett frequently drinking excessively and becoming incoherently drunk.
I became close friends with Debbie Ramirez shortly after we both arrived at Yale. She stood out as being exceptionally honest, with a trusting manner. As we got to know one another, I discovered that Debbie was very worried about fitting in. She felt that everyone at Yale was very rich, very smart and very sophisticated and that as a Puerto Rican woman from a less privileged background she was an outsider. Her response was to try hard to make friends and get along.
Based on my time with Debbie, I believe her to be unusually honest and straightforward and I cannot imagine her making this up.
Based on my time with Brett, I believe that he and his social circle were capable of the actions that Debbie described.
I do not consider myself to be a political person and I have no political agenda. I have shared this information with a small number of reporters who reached out to me directly because Debbie has a right to be heard and I believe her.
I have been asked for more detail and additional stories, but this is all that I am comfortable sharing. If I could contribute more first-hand information, I would, but I will not be granting any more interviews or answering any more questions at this time.

The only thing that will kill him for sure is a hardwood stake driven through his chest.

The saddest thing of all is that the Democrats have no game for 2020. None at all. More of the same.

WWIII will come in the Trump second term, I have a feeling. When the shit finally does start hitting the fan. None of this UN stuff matters in an election. The more embattled and beleaguered Trump gets, the more his moronic supporters are going to love him.

I don't see Trumpofsky being re-elected in 2020.  His base is already eroding.  The Demodopes do have potential candidates, Bernie may run again despite his age and Liz Warren would pull in the women voters.
