Bad News For Fraud Ford’s $700K Jackpot, Major Movie Deal, And More – Said She Had ‘Nothing to Gain’

Published

on

When contemplating the possibility of humiliatingly derailing an apparently respectable person’s career, harming his family, conceivably destroying his life… I’m sorry I have to point out that glib talking points flatly don’t cut it.

Consider what YoungConservatives’ Andrew Mark Miller writes about Blasey Ford v. Kavanaugh:

“One of the silliest arguments in favor of believing Christine Ford’s uncorroborated allegations against Brett Kavanaugh was that of course, Ford is telling the truth because she has no reason to lie. She has no reason to subject herself to this scrutiny and she doesn’t gain anything by coming forward.”

“… [H]ow can you possibly argue she doesn’t gain anything? She had the opportunity to change the course of history and stop Trump from adding a conservative judge to the bench.”

“Second of all, she instantly became a liberal hero.’”

The The Daily Wire pitches in this:

“Christine Blasey Ford has already been nominated by her alma mater for a distinguished alumna award. Predictably, the reason is her ‘speaking truth to power.'”

The website reminds us of Anita Hill who, back in 1991, accused SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment: “Hill has now had an HBO movie and a documentary glorify her testimony.”

“In her letter nominating Dr. Ford, Jennifer Ho, a professor of English at UNC, said the former alumna’s testimony “was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was: she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”

Miller anticipates there are additional ”awards and recognition” in the pipeline for the 51-year-old psychology professor.

And I suspect not many observers are aware the ordeal has yielded some financial benefits for Blasey Ford.

CBS News reports: “Two GoFundMe accounts made on behalf of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her family have raised over $700,000 in donations.”

700 large? We’re not talking chump change. Say what you will, that is not exactly “nothing to gain.”

Look, from the start, I suspended judgment and resolved to hear out both/all sides in the Blasey Ford/Kavanaugh dust-up. Notwithstanding the Supreme Court nominee’s/now-Justice’s gold-plated reputation and curriculum vitae, I understand any person is capable of villainy. I’m a Christian and Romans 6:23 settled that question for me long ago: “All have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.”

People surprise us – frequently darkly and uncomfortably. Individuals who are stellar examples in one area can end up real stinkers in others. An apparently upstanding man can cloak baneful secrets. A seemingly kindly woman victim can speak inaccurately – or even dishonestly.

So when this controversy initially erupted, I wanted to give the principals a chance to make their case before I declaimed, “Ridiculous! He’s clearly innocent!” or “That poor woman! How could that creep have done that to her?”

Eventually, I more or less settled on the likelihood something cripplingly grievous had happened to the lady accuser, but the evidence indicated it hadn’t been visited on her by Brett Kavanaugh. I felt genuinely sorry for her conspicuous distress – but not so sorry that I wanted a probably innocent man railroaded into ignominy over it.

But, I gotta tell ya… the more information that comes out about Christine Blasey Ford, the more time that passes, the more potholes in her claims are becoming visible and I’m getting closer to deciding there’s no reason to credit her allegations with any credibility.

In a recent piece, Dr. Don Boys roughly tracts with my quickly hardening conclusions:

“During the hearings, I believed Ford was honest but mistaken about her attacker. I felt sorry and pity for her; however, it is now my opinion that she is a liar and tool of evil, unprincipled Democrats. She lied about her fear of flying; she lied about being claustrophobic; she lied about the polygraph test; she lied about her ex-boyfriend’s credit card and charged $600 on it; and she lied about when her second front door was installed. My daddy the philosopher with a sixth-grade education said, ‘Anyone who will lie will do anything.’ Daddy was right.”

We can toss in there the numerous fault-lines in her sensationalistic indictments from the get-go… the inability to recall sizable chunks of rather significant details, inaccurate claims of eye-witness confirmation, etc.

I hesitate to assume anything about human beings. One of my go-to life mottos – and life experience and the daily news second it every day – is the straightforward phrase: “People are complex.” The reasons for their actions, the motivations, the expectations? Predictably befuddling, oftentimes downright impenetrable.

National Review’s Kevin Williamson proffers a commonly overlooked but indispensable consideration when contemplating emotionally-crackling situations like this controversy:

“‘Why?’ is a question that is not easily addressed by indisputable evidence. ‘Did she lie?’ is a different kind of question. … That the accusations against [Kavanaugh] are inconsistent, and that many of those close to the facts have disputed the claims as inventions, is dismissed as inconsequential. ‘Why would she make something like that up?’ … I do not know why Lena Dunham, the Duke accuser, or Rolling Stone’s sources made up their stories. I only know that they did.”

Along those lines, I can’t read Christine Blasey Ford’s mind. I can, though, determine her brief for bringing down Brett Kavanaugh seems to be growing weaker by the news cycle.

Meghan McCain Cold-Cocks Trump While Explaining Her Break From ‘The View’

Published

...

* By

Perhaps Meghan McCain moving to The View from Fox was a better fit than anyone knew at the time. She’s carrying forward her late father’s criticism of President Trump. This time she’s slapping at Trump for not going after Russia and Putin harder.

McCain took advantage of the fact that she is traveling to Britain to accept the Magnitsky award on behalf of her father. Her charges against President Trump are unfounded. He has aggressively fought against both Russia and China while in office. The Daily Caller has more on McCain’s bitter vitriol:

Meghan McCain criticized President Donald Trump on Wednesday for failing to “fight against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s global expansion and murderous regime.”

“I will be gone from @TheView tomorrow and Friday. I am going to London to speak @HouseofCommons and then to accept the Magnitsky award on behalf of my father and all who continue the fight against Putin’s tyrannous KGB dictatorship,” the co-host of the ABC talk show tweeted ahead of accepting the award for the late Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain.

“While the Trump’s and their administration continue to be too ignorant or too unscrupulous to fight against Putin’s global expansion and murderous regime -I promise on behalf of my father to spend the rest of my life doing all that I can to help fight and speak out against it,” she added.

McCain’s father passed away in August following a year-long battle with brain cancer. During her father’s eulogy, she appeared to use the opportunity to call out Trump over his “Make America Great” slogan.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” McCain shared. “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.”

Daniel Vajdich, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, and others have shared their beliefs that Trump’s been tougher on Russia than his predecessors.

“When you actually look at the substance of what this administration has done, not the rhetoric but the substance, this administration has been much tougher on Russia than any in the post-Cold War era,” Vajdich explained.

Under Trump’s administration, “some of the toughest sanctions in years” have been brought against Russia’s elite, according to a CNBC report. The president also approved the sale of weapons to Ukraine, something former President Barack Obama declined to do. He has also openly targeted Russia’s allies and strategic operations by ordering missiles to be fired at Syrian military sites.

The London event titled, “The McCain Legacy and the Magnitsky Act” will involve discussions about McCain’s role in passing the 2012 human rights act named after Sergei Magnitsky, who exposed money laundering and corruption in Putin’s regime, according to Newsweek.

The legislation promises to impose sanctions against countries found to have committed human rights abuses.

Melania Fired Them ALL! ‘That Is Not Acceptable Here – I Won’t Allow It!’

Published

...

* By

First lady Melania Trump just sent them all packing! She released multiple people from their positions as she would not allow taxpayers to be ripped off for jobs that were simply not needed – quite contrary to the former first lady, Michelle Obama. While Melania Trump takes on bigger roles and a more active schedule, she has proven herself to spend a lot less than what Obama did. This news comes about as Melania Trump runs one of the lightest East Wings in recent history.

Michelle Obama was reported to have 16 people working under her, being paid a combined $1.24 million. Melania Trump’s staff is only four people who earn a combined $486,700, much less in comparison to Obama. Knowing that Melania Trump refuses to hire 12 extra people to do jobs that can be handled by herself and four others is a wonderful bit of information as it reduces wasteful spending of the taxpayer money.

Not carrying the extra staff for jobs that can be handled by fewer people is a step in the right direction towards reducing the amount of money spent by the administration and shows that Melania cares to be mindful in her position as the first lady. That’s an enjoyable quality for a first lady to have as it spreads a message about being responsible and not overspending.

Fox News reported more on Melania’s smaller staff: “The details are contained in an annual report the White House sends to Congress showing the names, positions and salaries of all its personnel. Both the Obama and Trump administrations acknowledged several additional staffers beyond those listed in the report with the term “first lady” in their titles. But even counting all those employees — 24 for Michelle Obama and nine for the current first lady — Melania Trump’s office is relatively small.

It’s an approach her spokeswoman says is intentional.

“As with all things that she does, she is being very deliberate in her hiring, focusing on quality over quantity,” communications director Stephanie Grisham said in an email. “It is important to her that the team is a good fit for what she wants to accomplish as first lady, and that everyone works well together. She also wants to be mindful and responsible when it comes to taxpayer money.”

While the 2009 annual report listed 16 staffers for Michelle Obama, her press secretary said at the time the staff actually included 24 people. A 2009 FactCheck.org story said Obama’s 24 aides might have broken records.

“That may indeed be the largest of any first lady, but Hillary Clinton, with 19 staffers, and Laura Bush with at least 18 and perhaps more, weren’t far behind,” FactCheck.org said.

Grisham told Fox News this week there are nine people working in the East Wing under Melania Trump, a few more than listed in the annual report.

According to those personnel reports, Melania Trump’s staffers include a chief of staff, a communications director, a deputy chief of staff and a deputy director of advance.

Michelle Obama’s staff included those same positions and a slew of others: additional press aides, a director of policy and projects, a personal aide, a traveling aide and a director of correspondence.

Michelle Obama’s office did not return a request for comment.”

Melania and Donald Trump will surely be criticized for this one way or another. The critics will say that Melania fired people instead of being resourceful and saving money for the White House and their Presidency. While every President and first lady face critics, there has surely been an insufferable and increased amount of criticism has been levied towards the Trump family, with even Barron facing his own fierce barrage of harsh commentary from spiteful people who dislike the Trump family living in the White House.

Donald and Melania work through the criticism, doing things to make many Americans in hopes that they’re constantly doing right by the citizens. They will always face criticism from those who oppose their leadership, even though Trump won the Presidency in a fair election well over one year ago.

What do you think of Melania having a smaller staff? Is she saving money for taxpayers? Is it a smart move for her to be more resourceful in her spending?

Will Michelle Obama respond to Fox News to talk about why she had so many people working under her?
