The truth always seems to prevail, even if it takes some time to get there. Luckily the left, along with main Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, demanded and FBI investigation into her 36-year-old accusations, which was pretty ballsy given all that Blasey Ford seemingly has to hide. Perhaps she didn’t think that certain things would be uncovered, but now she’s unravelling at the seams and so are Democrats who have fervently pushed this accusation to facilitate their doomed agenda.
Dr. Ford has allegedly been caught in a web of deceit and a research article she contributed to ten years ago has resurfaced recently. What’s particularly questionable about this material, is the subject matter that may have foreshadowed how she’s now retrieving decades-old memories to “create artificial situations,” according to professor and senior writer for The Federalist, Margot Cleveland.
Despite her extensive and impressive educational background, Dr. Ford didn’t seem to think her high profile allegations through. She must have forgotten that she co-authored a study in which participants were taught SELF-HYPNOSIS and noted hypnosis is used to retrieve important memories. But more importantly, this study also taught how to “CREATE ARTIFICAL [sic] SITUATIONS,” Cleveland said on Twitter with photo evidence of the study’s existence and Ford’s part in it, which she also wrote for The Federalist.

Cleveland and many other Kavanaugh supporters believe that this answers a lot of questions about what Ford is up to.
While Dr. Ford’s purpose and suspected practice of “self hypnosis to create artificial situations” has not proven to have any part in her recent allegations against Kavanaugh, it has many people wondering if there’s any connection to this case and her behavior, who are now connecting the dots, without complete proof. We are not accusing Ford of using hypnosis to create “fake” memories, but simply stating that the correlation of her research study on this specific practice, paired with this current case, is causing conservatives to question Dr. Ford more than they already were.
“Adding to the alarming retrieval of this information is that “Ford’s internet history was wiped clean before she made allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stemming from an alleged incident 36 years ago,” Big League Politics reported.
“In sum, the same woman whose allegations against Kavanaugh from 36 years ago, which depend on retrieving old memories, authored an academic paper on how to do just that via hypnosis, which is a fringe science at best,” Big League Politics concluded.
What also seems a little suspect is how quickly this surprising material she was a part of authoring was squelched by large left-wing news outlets. Within minutes of Cleveland’s sounding the alarm with the documents on Twitter, left-leaning media watchdogs, Media Matters, published a piece discrediting the claim and of course referred to it as a “conservative conspiracy theory.”
The exceptionally quick retort to Cleveland’s shocking discovery seemed very odd, to say the least. We have no idea how Media Matters was able to know that Ford was about to be exposed by her own written words in the 10-year-old study, investigate Cleveland’s findings to determine it to be false, all within minutes of her statements and evidence to back the claim up being published on social media.
However, Media Matters seemed to have swiftly pulled something off, casting immediate doubt on what Dr. Ford meant when she wrote that.
The site’s article slamming the so-called “conspiracy” casted immediate doubt on Cleveland’s assertion in the headline, based on their own claim, for anyone cross-checking what she retrieved. “Pro-Kavanaugh conspiracy theory suggests Christine Ford hypnotized herself into creating false memory of assault by Kavanaugh,” was the title and the article expounded on their own assertion of it being a “conspiracy” as follows:
An emerging smear of Christine Blasey Ford, who says that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school, suggests that Ford created a false memory of the assault while in a hypnotic state.
Margot Cleveland, a senior contributor to The Federalist, launched the conspiracy theory on Twitter, seizing on an academic article co-authored by Ford, who is a psychology professor at Palo Alto University, and 10 others that is titled, “Meditation With Yoga, Group Therapy With Hypnosis, and Psychoeducation for Long-Term Depressed Mood: A Randomized Pilot Trial.” The conspiracy theory was later posted at The Federalist.
The implication is that Ford may have hypnotized herself and created a false memory of her account of Kavanaugh sexually assaulting her at a party when she was 15 and he was 17. This is a misreading of the article, which cites research published in 1964 by Stanley Abrams that “suggested that hypnosis could be used to improve rapport in the therapeutic relationship, assist in the retrieval of important memories, and create artificial situations that would permit the client to express ego-dystonic emotions in a safe manner.”
In terms of self-hypnosis, the article says that “participants also were taught self-hypnosis to use outside the group for relaxation and affect regulation” — not to create false memories.
Reached for comment, one of the study’s co-authors, who is being granted anonymity because of harassment and threats surrounding Ford’s decision to speak out, told Media Matters that the claims being spread about Ford and the study are “absolutely ridiculous” and “the study had absolutely nothing to do with the creation of false memories, or the creation of memories of any kind.” The co-author added that Ford was a statistical consultant on the report, not a participant in the study, and that she worked on the data after it was collected.

Opinion: Congress Just Exposed Democrat Collusion – Dems In Major Trouble
For far too long politics in America has been much more about right or left rather than right or wrong. If Donald Trump’s presidency accomplishes nothing else, it has exposed the sheer volume of corruption in Washington D.C. that has been allowed to fester in such a way as to make it undeniable, except perhaps to those that are content to live with their delusions. Though they make pharmaceuticals for that…but I digress.
It seems Senator Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee is also sick to death of the lies and shenanigans it seems. He sent a searing letter to the attorneys representing Christine Blasey Ford, who made 11th-hour accusations that Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 35 years ago. In the letter, he reiterated his already twice-stated request for Ford’s attorneys to turn over the “therapy notes, polygraph materials, and communications with The Washington Post that Dr. Ford has relied upon as evidence.”
The evidence includes notes from Ford’s therapy sessions and detailed charts from the polygraph exam she arranged to take in August prior to going public with her accusations.
After being briefed on the FBI's seventh background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh, I have seen no corroborating evidence to the claims made against him. It's time to vote, and I will vote to #ConfirmKavanaugh.
— Senator John Thune (@SenJohnThune) October 4, 2018
Grassley began his letter with a simple civics lesson noting that the Senate is specifically charged by the Constitution to advise the President, be it President Trump or another president future or past, on his nominees for the Supreme Court. As such, Grassley charged that the Committee had a “constitutional obligation to investigate and evaluate independently the President’s nominees.” He also clarified the Senate’s “obligation is unrelated to anything the FBI does … We have to make our own assessment.”
Grassley has extended deadlines and written multiple letters requesting this information be provided to the Committee so they could be properly evaluated as part of the Senate’s vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Every single request has been ignored and rebuffed. The latest excuse in an ever-growing list that grows longer by the hour has Ford’s attorneys stating to Grassley that the information in question would now only be turned over to the FBI as part of a full investigation into Ford’s accusations.
Grassley unequivocally let them know that is not how this works, stating – “The U.S. Senate doesn’t control the FBI. If you have an objection to how the FBI conducts its investigations, take it up with Director [Christopher] Wray. But don’t raise that objection as a reason not to respond to this committee’s demand for relevant evidence.”

As the Daily Wire notes –
“Grassley then set the record straight about the attorneys using their objections to the FBI investigation as an excuse to deny the Judiciary Committee access to the information they were demanding. He wrote, “The FBI’s investigative decisions aren’t our concern. Even if the FBI never interviews Dr. Ford, or interviews her ten times, this Committee has a constitutional obligation to investigate Dr. Ford’s allegations, and that’s what we’ve been doing since we became aware of her allegations.”
Grassley pointed out that the attorneys had “claimed repeatedly that the evidence I have requested supports Dr. Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. She even provided some of this evidence to national news. Indeed, if the evidence supported your client’s allegations, you surely would produce it as quickly as you could.”
Then Grassley really got to the nitty-gritty: “But you have repeatedly refused to produce this evidence to the Senate. In doing so, you are preventing the Senate from considering the evidence most crucial to Dr. Ford’s allegations. I don’t know what other inference we should draw from your refusal but that the withheld evidence does not support Dr. Ford’s allegations in quite the way you have claimed.”
A NEW TWIST

Grassley’s concluding paragraph indicated he thought there might have been some interesting communication going on between Ford or her attorneys and some of the alleged witnesses she named to the alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh –
“In addition to the evidence I requested in my October 2 letter, in light of recently uncovered information, please turn over records and descriptions of direct or indirect communications between Dr. Ford or her representatives and any of the following: (1) U.S. Senators or their staffs, particularly the offices of Senators Feinstein and Hirono, other than your communications with me and my staff in preparation for the September 27 hearing; (2) the alleged witnesses identified by Dr. Ford (Leland Keyser, Mark Judge, and Patrick “P.J.” Smyth); and (3) Debbie Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, or their representatives.”
There has been some significant speculation with regards to exactly what Grassley has uncovered and when the American people will find out. If it is collusion as the letter appears to suggest, then it could potentially spell more bad news for Democrats with less than a month away from the 2018 midterm elections.
Ford’s allies did their level best to demonize Grassley and his committee of “11 old white men” for browbeating an alleged sexual assault victim. Ford’s team of attorneys — Debra S. Katz, Lisa J. Banks, Joseph E. Abboud, and Michael R. Bromwich — have been highly critical and very vocal in their criticisms of the handling of their client’s allegations. They have questioned just why the Judiciary Committee did not allow more witnesses last week and then blasted the FBI for choosing to not interview Ford herself as a part of its new five-day investigation into the accusations of sexual assault and rape from her and another woman, Deborah Ramirez.
– Leland Keyser was pressured to change her testimony clearing Kavanaugh
– Pressure came from former FBI agent who is good [beach] friends with Dr. Ford
– This is the same FBI agent Ford trained to pass a polygraph
– GOP has copies of the messages

With allegations so suspect that Ford’s former school Leland Kyser told the FBI she was pressured by Ford’s best friend, Monica McLean, to “clarify” her original statement. McLean just happens to have spent 24 years working for the Department of Justice, including as an FBI special agent. During her time in the FBI, McLean also served as a spokesperson for the FBI’s New York field office, according to a 2009 CNN report. She also just happens to be a former spokesperson to Preet Bharara, a far left-wing former US attorney fired by President Trump last year.
Kyser originally stated through her attorney regarding the accusations levied against Kavanaugh – “Ms. Keyser does not know Mr.Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”
According to the Wall Street Journal –
“A person close to the former classmates said it was her understanding that mutual friends of Dr. Ford and Ms. Keyser, including Ms. McLean, had contacted Ms. Keyser after her initial statement to warn her that her statement was being used by Republicans to rebut the allegation against Judge Kavanaugh. The friends told Ms. Keyser that if she had intended to say she didn’t remember the party—not that it had never happened—that she should clarify her statement, the person said…”
DEVELOPING: Christine Ford Nailed Over Major Polygraph Slip Up – Why Is She Hiding This?!
Now that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified we can safely say we have more questions about her story than we did before she testified.
One particular question that’s very odd is when she was asked about the polygraph test and she actually said she doesn’t think she paid for it. What? How can you not know if you paid for something or you didn’t? Only in Liberal Land can someone forget if they paid for something so important when they are testifying in front of the U.S. Senate and the world.
Here is more on this controversy via Breitbart:
“Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor who leveled allegations of teenage sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, said she does not know who paid for a polygraph examination regarding the incident while testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday.
UPDATE — 1:44 PM: Ford’s counsel, Debra Katz, after a break in the hearing, says: “Let me put an end to this mystery – her lawyers have paid for her polygraph. As is routine.”
Blasey Ford told prosecutor Rachel Mitchell Thursday afternoon that she did “not yet” know who paid for the polygraph exam she underwent on August 7, one week after her allegations against Kavanaugh reached Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
Ford testified Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, leveling her accusations against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee. The Republican members all ceded their time for questions to Mitchell, a veteran sex crimes prosecutor.
In this exchange, Mitchell asked whether Ford recalled who had paid for the polygraph exam:
MITCHELL: Did you pay for the polygraph yourself?
FORD: I don’t think so.
MITCHELL: Do you know who paid for the polygraph?
FORD: Not yet, no.
Mitchell also asked why Jerry Hanafin, the polygraph administrator, did not conduct the examination in his Virginia office, rather at a hotel next to Baltimore–Washington International Airport. “I had left my grandmother’s funeral at that point at Fort Lincoln Cemetery that day and I was on a tight scheduled to get to make a plane to Manchester, New Hampshire,” Ford told Mitchell. “He was willing to come to me, which was appreciated.”
Mitchell followed up, “So you were administered a polygraph on the day that you attended your grand mother’s funeral ?”
“Correct, or it might have been the next day,” Ford replied.
In a hot mic moment, Ford then turned to one of her attorneys, Debra Katz, and said, “I don’t remember the exact day.”
Asked if she had ever been advised on how to take a polygraph or offered any “tips” regarding an examination, Ford said she had not. She said that while she was “scared” to take the test, she believed it would accurately gauge whether her responses were truthful.
“I didn’t expect it to be as long as it was going to be,” she added. “It was a little bit stressful.”
Why is it that when Liberals testify against conservatives the mainstream media never call them out on what they say? And why is it that everytime a Conservative man seems to have an issue with some women in his past that woman always turns out to be a far left wing liberal? Why don’t conservative women ever seem to come out and accuse anyone? Maybe they do, but when Paula Jones and Juanita Broaderick came out and accused Bill Clinton instead of investigating the only thing that happened is that Hillary Clinton referred to them as “Bimbo Eruptions.”
Dr. Ford made a fool out of herself in today’s testimony. She came across as someone who didn’t know what had happened and who when asked about that night actually had to read a notepad in order to remember. That doesn’t sound normal when you have been traumatized so severely that you claim to not be able to go into small spaces, although you do fry in airplanes and you do go scuba diving which is terrifying for anyone who suffers from claustrophobia as Ford claims she does.
The left-wing media is as I write this already conspiring with the Democrat Party as to how to spin this so this woman looks somewhat credible. But the truth of the matter is the damage has already been done and the American people already saw first hand what kind of Democrat Party orchestrated farce this whole thing is.
Perhaps the saddest part about all this is how, even if confirmed, Kavanaugh’s reputation has already been tarnished to a level no innocent individual should have to endure. Let’s hope and pray that all this fake narrative from the left is uncovered and those who conspired and lied go to prison. If not then we can safely say America has lost its greatness and all we are is just another banana republic like so many others in the world.
Please pray for Judge Kavanaugh, His family, President Trump, and the United States of America!
