I despise Twitter, FB and other types of mainstream social media. But I'll admit that it is very useful in weeding out these types, putting them under higher magnification.

I have been struggling ever since this Blasley Ford woman came on the scene to understand why so many came out to say they found her credible, in the face of what seemed to me so many points of uncertainty, lack of corroboration, etc.

All I can think of is that very many confuse credibility with sympathy. Very different concepts.


I didn't find her credible at all. I truly believe this is another Psych Degree Professional self diagnosing herself. To me her testimony seemed more of a dream newly "remembered" as a memory or an implanted memory. A lot of the other missing aspects/gaps of her "memory" is very consistent and explained as something else other than an actual event. I had one case where the woman had just moved into my town and venue when she reported a a suspect who got in her home and raped her. When I ran her name through the area Police Report system, there were FOUR other reports with four other departments (the four other places she had lived at prior). All four reports described the EXACT SAME incident and suspect. It turned out of course that she was mental and kept having this nightmare where she was raped. None it happened and because she was mental (no mental health court at the time), no charges for filing false police report were ever filed.

Almost all of the sexual assault victims I have interviewed, even the ones who were drunk or drugged (drugged ones didn't remember exactly what happened after being drugged but they remembered everything before and after drug wore off), had extensive memories of the events. They remembered voices, sounds, breathing, body odor, cologne smell, etc. The case of the false report, I referenced above had the exact same gaps and inconsistencies as Ford's story.


This reflects my experiences as well. You can tell when the story does not ring true. Anyone who does not believe some women will develop stories of sexual assault is naïve or refusing to accept the reality of it.


It is truly amazing the reasons women make up to justify a sexual assault claim. Had one case, the "victim" did not want to give her name or contact information, she just wanted us to go arrest the guy based simply on just her statement of he drugged her and raped her (I am not kidding, that was the extent of her statement). Well, the guy didn't need to drug her as she bought (paid for her own drinks) and drank 7, let me repeat this, 7 Long Island Teas. Lucky for the guy there was witnesses and video (as they left the club) with her all over him. Once she was confronted with facts and evidence, she said she made it up, wanted to get him in trouble for him not calling her right away.

If you do, use a fake name, a burner phone, and NEVER take her to your residence. This way you can disappear like you went into Witness Protection. Wink

I didn’t believe her, the little girl voice, the large frame glasses and her not remembering fact turned me off. The week she spent in California she was trained to respond like that. Also the fact of her afraid of flying was a big lie. She deserves an Oscar for her performance.

Prof Who Called for GOP Senators' ‘Deaths’ Admits to ‘Doxxing’ Her Haters’ Addresses, Phone Numbers

https://pjmedia.com/trending/p...esses-phone-numbers/

The Georgetown University professor who called for the “miserable deaths” of GOP senators admitted Thursday to PJ Media that she runs a “doxxing” blog where she posts the names, phone numbers, and addresses of people who send her rude emails.

The blog — “ShitMenSay” on Tumblr — was launched by Professor Christine Fair in January 2017. First, she began by posting screenshots of the “hate mail” she was sent by Facebook and email, typically only including names and people’s email addresses.



But as early as May 2017, Fair changed course. Instead of simply screenshotting the person’s email or Facebook message, Fair appears to have subscribed to a service that would help her figure out where these people exactly live.

PJ Media reviewed hundreds of posts (yes, hundreds) on “ShitMenSay” and identified 11 accounts of full-on doxxing, for which home addresses, phone numbers, photos, aliases, and occasionally work phone numbers and other family members were made public.

“When will these male trolls learn?” she wrote on September 28.

“I do research for a living. Locating their residences (these folks live in a town in [redacted] near an elementary school on [redacted] St.), their wives, employers, etc. is mental sport for me,” wrote Fair in one doxxing post.

“I will be notifying his current and past employer as well as his wife,” she wrote on a separate doxxing post. (PJ Media is not linking or screenshotting any of these posts due to privacy concerns for the victims of her blog.)

While Fair justifies her doxxing by calling it “accountability” for “harassment,” the emails that she received are garden-variety hate mail, and wouldn’t in any case rise to an illegal level of harassment.

For example, one man was doxxed after he emailed: “I find it interesting that you refer to half the [men] in this country as a form of ape. Your (sic) a PHD right? I guess it must not be difficult to get a PHD.”

He ended his brief missive with “HAHAHHAAHA GO TRUMP, I’M GLAD HE IRRITATES YOU.” In turn, Fair posted his email, his home address, and his phone number, and contacted his employer. It is unclear if he is still employed; he was unreachable by phone and email.

Title IX Complaint Filed Against Prof Who Called for ‘Miserable Deaths’ of White Senators

PJ Media contacted the 11 people who were hardcore doxxed by Professor Fair. The vast majority of this hardcore doxxing came after she tweeted that GOP white senators “deserve miserable deaths” during the Brett Kavanaugh TV saga.

Except for two victims, none responded to PJ Media's requests for comment.

One man, K, said he was unaware he was doxxed. (To be fair, it is unclear how many people follow Fair’s doxxing blog. It could easily have a handful of followers, or thousands.)

“Why would she post my personal information? Is it to create an opening for someone ... to harass me? Is this the new way for people with extreme points of view to 'punish' and try to quiet those that disagree with them?” said K.

“Since when is the goal to damage or have some anonymous person damage a person that disagrees online? Muzzling free speech thru fear is not an American ideal. It does however, seem to be a new weapon to beat down conservative voices. Sad situation,” K told PJ Media.

Another man, B, said he was doxxed within a day of sending Fair an email that contained his phone number in the signature line.

“Then I got 30 emails with the subject line ‘ASSHAT’ or something like that and some of the contents of those emails contained attachments with very disturbing images. Very gruesome. People."

“Were they dead or alive?” I asked B during a phone interview on Sunday.

“That I don't know. I only completely opened one email attachment, and was too afraid to open any others,” B told PJ Media. Then B got a phone call from a man who said he knew where B lived, claiming that he was calling on behalf of Professor Fair.

Afraid for his safety, B was forced to temporarily move and change his phone number.

Fair — for her part — denies wrongdoing. Her blog is about “accountability,” she maintains. She says she only posts the contact information for the people who “harrass” her, but claims she herself does not harass people back.

“I run my Tumblr blog. You can see only people who send me vile notes are doxxed,” Fair emailed PJ Media last Thursday. She did not respond to follow-up inquiries.

According to a FIRE spokesman, Fair’s actions thus far are protected by the First Amendment. But James Salby — a manager at Acronis, a digital security firm — said that the fallout of doxxing can be immense.

“Occasionally, doxxing is used by people who feel vulnerable and powerless to try to expose and hit back at people who are hiding behind secrecy and anonymity,” he said.

“It is a crude weapon that can also harm innocent bystanders: family members, and people with similar names or appearances,” he added. “The reason to take it seriously is that its use is growing. That’s because it’s effective and it’s cheap and fairly simple to do.”

Georgetown University spokesmen did not respond to requests for comment for this article. Fair is currently on paid research leave, and her Tumblr doxxing blog can only be viewed by those with Tumblr accounts who turn off safe-mode.

Note: The two victims have been identified in this article by an initial bearing no correlation to their actual name.

Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

Fox News

Chief Justice John Roberts is referring complaints about statements made by new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to federal judges outside the Beltway.

In a letter posted Wednesday on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals website, Roberts announced that he has asked judges who handle ethics complaints for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to deal with the claims.

Roberts said in his letter that he was initially notified of complaints against Kavanaugh on Sept. 20. The complaints deal with statements Kavanaugh made during his confirmation hearings and were initially filed with the D.C. Circuit, where Kavanaugh served for 12 years before joining the high court.

In a statement issued Saturday, D.C. Circuit Judge Karen Henderson said the complaints only "seek investigations ... of the public statements [Kavanaugh] has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court." Kavanaugh was confirmed to the high court that same day after a contentious nomination process that included allegations of sexual misconduct dating back to his days as a high school and college student.

Roberts received the first three of 15 eventual complaints a week before Kavanaugh's angry denial of a sexual assault allegation by Christine Blasey Ford.

The Denver-based 10th Circuit handles appeals of cases that originate in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming.

The judiciary's rules allow members of the public to lodge complaints about federal judges. They typically are dealt with by experienced judges in the courthouse or region where a judge serves. Judges who receive complaints have a range of options that include dismissing them out of hand, having local judges investigate them or asking Roberts, in his capacity as head of the federal judiciary, to assign the complaints to judges in a different part of the country.

It's possible the complaints will never be investigated if the lower-court judges determine they have no jurisdiction over a Supreme Court justice under the judiciary's ethics rules.

Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the D.C. Circuit, typically deals with ethics complaints, but he apparently stepped aside from complaints against Kavanaugh. Garland had been nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, but Senate Republicans never acted on the nomination.

Roberts' letter was sent to Judge Timothy Tymkovich, the 10th Circuit's chief judge. Tymkovich was on President Donald Trump's list of possible Supreme Court nominees.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Alaska GOP Considering Whether To Throw Murkowski Out Of GOP For Opposing Kavanaugh

The Alaska Republican party has requested that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) submit any information she has that might dissuade them from reprimanding her for opposing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

As AP reports, “Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock says the committee could decide to issue a statement. Or he says it could withdraw support of Murkowski, encourage party officials to look for a replacement and ask that she not seek re-election as a Republican.”

It might be emotionally satisfying, but it would be certifiably idiotic to push too hard on this, with a squeaky-thin Senate majority and right before a very close mid-term, after which every vote to keep Schumer in the Minority column is to be desired. There are already two 'independents' that vote for Schumer - Sanders and King.

If we end up with 60-40 majority, though, might be time to recall the Klingon axiom, that "revenge is a dish best served cold". Till then, best to keep your friends close and your not-up-for-relection RINOs closer. Wink
