Leading Catholic magazine retracts endorsement of Judge Kavanaugh

A leading Catholic magazine, America: The Jesuit Review, has withdrawn its endorsement of embattled Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh — a devout lifelong Catholic with a flawless legal and judicial record, who had been vetted and investigated by the FBI six times.

On September 27, 2018, after the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Kavanaugh/Blasey Ford hearing, America published a piece titled, “The Editors: It is time for the Kavanaugh nomination to be withdrawn,” stating that whereas the magazine’s editors previously had endorsed Judge Kavanaugh based on his strong textualist viewpoint and solid “legal credentials,” the allegations against him have led the editors to withdraw their endorsement.

The reason is that although the editors “have no special insight into who is telling the truth” and “even if the credibility of the allegation has not been established beyond a reasonable doubt,” nevertheless, in the judgment of the magazine’s editors, “this nomination is no longer in the best interests of the country.”

According to The Conservative Brief, Sam Sawyer, a member of America’s editorial board and the Society of Jesus, told Vox that the decision to rescind Kavanaugh’s endorsement reflected, among other moral and constitutional concerns, a wider interest in ensuring that abuse victims are taken seriously because the Church has a “particular sensitivity to what’s going on in the wider society with the #MeToo movement.”

Put simply, America magazine has caved into the bullying tactics of the Left and, by so doing, is helping to ensure that the Left, having been successful, will continue to deploy underhanded tactics in the future.

Call me cynical, but what surprises me is that America magazine actually had endorsed Judge Kavanaugh to begin with, given Wikipedia‘s description of the magazine:

America is a national weekly magazine published by the Jesuits of the United States and headquartered in midtown Manhattan….

The publication was founded in 1909 in New York City and the Jesuits still maintain and publish the weekly magazine…. With its Jesuit affiliation, America has been described by The Washington Post as “a favourite of Catholic liberal intellectuals“.[1]

Under the leadership of [former editor in chief Thomas] Reese from 1998 to 2005, the magazine has been known for publishing articles and opinion pieces taking positions contrary to official Catholic teaching or discipline on matters such as homosexuality, priestly celibacy, birth control, and the abortion debate….

In 2009, under the leadership of Drew Christiansen, the editorial board gave support to an invitation for U.S. President Barack Obama to receive an honorary degree at the [Catholic] University of Notre Dame, which was controversial after directives from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops discouraged pro-choice politicians and activists from being honored at Catholic universities.

America‘s retraction of its endorsement speaks more about the magazine and the Catholic Church than about Judge Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford and the Hillary Clinton Connection

During the 2016 presidential campaign on August 21, rabid anti-Trumper Cher hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton at the Pilgrim Monument & Museum in Provincetown, Cape Cod.

The fundraiser, attended by a cheering crowd of about 1,000 useful idiots, netted $1.5 million for Hillary’s campaign coffers. (Cape Cod Times)

Below is a pic of Hillary, dressed in a hospital-gownlike smock, leaving the event.

Note the dark-haired woman behind Hillary.

In 2016, we’d assumed the woman was just some anonymous Hillary flunky.

But wait!

She’s no flunky.

That woman is none other than Debra Katz, Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney. (H/t Neon Revolt)

Wikipedia describes Debra Katz as follows:

Debra S. Katz is a civil rights and employment lawyer and a founding partner of Katz, Marshall & Banks in Washington, DC. Katz was raised in a Jewish family on Long Island…. Katz represents Christine Blasey Ford, professor at Palo Alto University, who in September 2018 alleged that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s, when they were both teenagers.

According to Slate, Debra Katz “is known for her work representing sexual harassment and abuse victims”. Both Katz and Ford’s other attorney, Michael Bromwich (whom Wikipedia describes as also “raised in a Jewish family”) are representing the Kavanaugh accuser pro bono, despite the fact that Christine Blasey Ford has received more than half a million ($528,315) in GoFundMe donations.

What both Slate and Wikipedia neglected to tell us is that Debra Katz is also a Hillary Clinton operative.

One of Wikileaks‘ Podesta emails shows that Debra Katz was an early fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The email, intended for Clinton, stated that as of November 2015 Katz had raised over $29,000.

In Katz, we see the hidden hand of Hillary in the ongoing machinations to take down Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Hillary Clinton had done this before. In 2016, her pal, Esprit Clothing founder Susie Tompkins Buell, paid $500,000 in an unsuccessful effort to fund women accusing Trump of sexual misconduct. (Fox News)

On Christine Ford, see:

UPDATE (Sept. 30):

Snopes claims that the woman with Hillary was Barbara Kinney.

Not true: Kinney has a bulbous nose; Debra Katz and the woman in the pic with Hillary has a thin, pointy nose.

Barbara Kinney (l) is not the woman with Hillary (r)

Christine Blasey Ford’s body language

According to Mandy O’Brien, a body language analyst who calls herself “Dr. Bombard,” during Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday, her body language indicates she was using her emotional demeanor to influence and manipulate.

As you watch the video below, just remember that, contrary to her little-girl voice and demeanor, Christine Blasey Ford:

  • Is a 52-year-old (she’ll be 53 in November), middle-aged professional woman.
  • Has not one, but three, degrees in psychology, which means she is knowledgeable about polygraph tests and emotional manipulation:
    • B.A., Psychology, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 1988.
    • M.A., Clinical Psychology, Pepperdine University, 1991.
    • Ph.D., Educational Psychology & Research Design, U. of Southern California, 1996.
  • Is a professor of both teaching and research, which means she is experienced in public speaking and public appearances.

But we are to believe that this highly-educated, 52-year-old professor did not know:

  • How to contact the Senate or the President!
  • What the word “exculpatory” means.

Here are some specific points made about Ford’s body language:

(1) Hard swallow and beady eyes darting and scanning the room while holding her head high in one position suggests the nervous look is contrived.

(2) Repeatedly opening her mouth like a fish gulping for air indicates “something is neurologically wrong with her…because that’s not normal behavior”.

(3) Defiance (5:38 mark):

When committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that the individuals whom Ford alleges to be eyewitnesses of the alleged assault all denied any knowledge of the assault or even of the party, Ford instantly switched from her nervous, vulnerable little-girl demeanor to arrogantly tilting her head high, looking down on the committee members. Who does that at a U.S. Senate hearing? That is her true face.

(4) Ford described the alleged assault in a choked voice for several minutes, during and after which there was no mucus and no tears.

The analysis of Ford’s body language is consistent with certified graphologist Leeann Springer’s analysis of Ford’s handwriting:

Christine Ford’s writing…is a combination of “writer/printer” which some use in the math field. However, those writers/printers have clear, well-formed and easy to read writing, which Ford severely lacks in her writing. She clearly wants no connection to the past, which is evidenced in her “right hand column writing”. She strays from being on task, and has forgetfulness. There’s a lot of “scratching over” strokes, which is what some of us term as “litter box scratching”. There’s obvious signs of addiction, sometimes, it’s drugs, alcohol, sexual or something totally out of control in a person’s life. There is a clear disconnect in what she is thinking vs. what she is writing. Although, I don’t have the original writing, I’d safely venture to say “she has misplaced pressure throughout the writing, which borders on severe mood swings. She is trying to stay in control by writing in an AB slant (controlled writing) but in some areas there is a “severe abnormal left slant” as though she is falling over backwards. The body of her writing which is frozen in the AB slant does not match with her signature, which means she wants to appear one way to the world, but not in reality. She wants to appear friendly and warm to others, but isn’t. She is a middle zone writer, which means she’s only concerned with the here and now and lives for the moment. Overall impression is that her writing is poorly integrated, choppy, not free flowing, scratched over, she has some rebellion in her strokes and is stubborn. She also lacks high self-esteem and for a person who is in education, she certainly has low goals, as witnessed with the very low “t” crossings, poorly formed thinking letters “m’s and n’s”. It’s not just one trait that is measured in HA, it’s collectively analyzed. She is someone though, that probably wants her own way, seen in many threaded strokes in her writing. She is careful not to divulge too much about herself on a personal level. Her writing lacks logic, most of all, and does show addictive behavior that is not beneficial. We analysts have also seen this in those who’ve beaten addiction, but still live with the residual damages, which is recorded in the brain. Handwriting is indeed brain-writing.

Referring to Ford’s number zero (0) in “2018”, which contains a small oval, her not dotting i’s, and her low-cross t’s, Springer explains:

Loops inside ovals or hanging jabbed marks on ovals, indicates lying. If seen throughout the writing, it is pathological lying, also seen in self-absorbed narcissists. When ovals are inside ovals and there’s a lot of threading (imagine a long thread) the person is not truthful. Scratching throughout a writing, if there’s no brain damage, is deception. We call it the litter box scratch and we all know why cats scratch litter. If an oval is looped on both sides (imagine hair parted in the middle with bangs hanging on each side) indicates big liars. Those who forget to dot i’s, cross t’s and have cover strokes in small “m’s and n’s” are secretive and they can play people.

Recall that little-girl Ford had deleted all her social media BEFORE she went public that she’s the author of the accusatory letter Sen. Dianne “my personal driver of 20 years is a Chinese spy” Feinstein forwarded to the Justice Department. The deletion of her social media is another indication of her “careful not to divulge too much of herself”, “secretive”, and “deception”. What was contained in her social media we’ll never know.

Someone in Congress posted Republicans’ home addresses & phone numbers on Wikipedia

There is no limit to how low Democrats sink.

During yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, someone(s) using a House of Representatives computer edited Wikipedia‘s article on the U.S. House of Representatives by posting the home addresses and phone numbers of Republican committee members.

Politico‘s congressional reporter Burgess Everett tweeted:

Someone is doxxing GOP senators on a computer from the House of Representatives, began shortly after the Graham speech. I’m not going to retweet the account where this is posted.

Victor Morton reports for The Washington Times that committee members who were doxxed included Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah).

Independent Journal Review editor Caleb Hull said Mrs. Hatch has been receiving “nonstop” harassing calls nonstop on her birthday, and that their home address was made public.

The doxxing came from an IP address associated with the U.S. Congress. We know this from CongressEdits, an automated TwitterTwitter account (@congressedits) created in May 2014 which tweets changes to Wikipedia articles originating from IP addresses assigned to Congress.

White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah tweeted:“This is outrageous. Please stop.”

Senate hearing of Kavanaugh and his accuser – Live

Below is the live hearing.

Born on November 28, 1966, Ford is a 52-year-old professional with a Ph.D., but curiously speaks in a little-girl voice, ending nearly every phrase or sentence with a totally inappropriate question-mark inflection, as if she’s a little girl asking permission.

She also speaks of the alleged assault that allegedly happened 36 YEARS AGO, in a choking, tearful voice. But, like the Sandy Hook crisis actors, there’s no tears, not one.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoRnYO7xcQY&feature=push-lsb&attr_tag=q0sqq7GzxhYwBzOg%3A6

Meanwhile, two men have come forth to the Senate Judiciary Committee that they assaulted Christine Blasey (Ford) in 1982, not Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

From the Judiciary Committee (source: Daily Wire):

Committee staff have a second interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in the summer of 1982 that is the basis of her allegation. He described his recollection of their interaction in some detail.

The Committee also had a phone interview with a second man who also believed that he may have assaulted Ford in the summer of 1982.

Also, Julie Swetnick, the woman represented by porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, who claims that she’d witnessed Kavanaugh participate in gang-rapes, sued her previous employer for sexual harassment using a law firm run by Debra Katz, the lawyer for Ford. A separate report further raised questions about Swetnick’s credibility after it was revealed that her ex-boyfriend had filed a restraining order against her and insisted that she’s “not credible at all” and that he has evidence to demonstrate that her claims about Kavanaugh are false.

Kavanaugh-accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s handwriting

Graphology is the science of analyzing handwriting for personality traits, which has been around since the days of Aristotle. Today, it’s used for a variety of purposes, from criminal investigations to employers using it to screen potential employees.

Master graphologist Kathi McKnight told Business Insider that “Just from analyzing your handwriting, experts can find over 5,000 personality traits.”

Are you a graphologist or handwriting analyst?

If so, please examine the sample below of Christine Blasey Ford’s handwriting of August 7, 2018, and give us your informed analysis. Thank you.

Source: ScribD

Below is a cropped and enlarged version of her handwriting (I painted the red circles and arrow):

I’m not a professional graphologist. Based on what graphologists say, and my intuitive sense, here are my impressions of Ford’s handwriting:

  • The handwriting strikes me as chaotic, messy and childish, instead of that of a mature, 52-year-old professional woman, who will be 53 years old on November 28.
  • Her t’s with low cross-bars indicate emotional insecurities and a lack of ambition and lofty goals.
  • She often does not dot her i’s, which “denotes distraction, oversight, lack of attention, tendency to get distracted or forget obligations, lack of critical sense, lack of interest, apathy, lack of order, precision and exactitude,” thinking not based in objective conclusions, but wanders and “gives into receptiveness, indolence, negligence, laziness.” (Handwriting & Graphology)
  • How odd it is that the words in her account are upright, which graphologists say indicates a person who is pragmatic and ruled by logic instead of emotion, but her signature is slanted to the right.
  • She uses her maiden name Blasey, instead of her married name Ford.
  • Her signature mis-spells “Christine” as “Christi” and “Blasey” as “Blasy”.
  • The number zero (0) in “2018” is most peculiar: a little zero inside the zero. Graphologists say that inner loops (or circles) inside the letters “o” and “a” signify lying, dishonesty and secrecy.

Jimmy Kimmel threatens to cut off Judge Kavanaugh’s penis

Last night, Sept. 24, 2018, in his unfunny monologue, unfunny comedian Jimmy Kimmel threatened to cut off Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s penis if the Senate confirm his Supreme Court nomination.

Jerome Hudson of Breitbart gives us the background to Kimmel’s threat:

Kimmel launched into the Kavanaugh rancor midway through his monologue, noting a New Yorker article published over the weekend in which Deborah Ramirez alleged that as a drunken Yale University freshman, Brett Kavanaugh “exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party.” Ramirez claimed she had “significant gaps in her memories” regarding the alleged encounter. Ramirez’s college best friend also told the paper she “never heard of” the incident in question.

Jimmy Kimmel cut to a clip of Judge Kavanaugh and his wife’s Fox News interview on Monday, in which the Supreme Court nominee called allegations from Christine Blasey Ford false and explained that he was a virgin in high school and college….

Kavanaugh has reportedly produced calendars from 1982, which purportedly prove he was out of town during the time in which Ford says he attempted to grope her at a house party.

“What 17-year-old keeps calendars of his social engagements?” Kimmel asked. “No wonder he was a virgin.”

Beginning at the 6:43 mark of the video below, Kimmel says:

“So Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court. Okay. Well, in return, we get to cut that pesky penis of his off.”

Kimmel’s audience laugh uproariously, because threatening to castrate a man is just so falling-on-the-floor funny.

https://youtu.be/935PjmlOH5o?t=4m3s

Kimmel really is in no position to be holier-than-thou when it comes to the treatment of women.

Recall his so-called skit wherein he invited women to touch his crotch to guess what he had in his pants. He said to one woman: “Maybe it would be easier if you put your mouth on it.” (See “Jimmy Kimmel to woman: Put your mouth to what’s in my pants“)

The latest: The spineless Senate Judiciary Committee has re-scheduled its vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to this Friday morning, a day after Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, presumably had testified before the committee.

A successful vote Friday is not necessary to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate. Current Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas received no recommendation from the Judiciary Committee in 1991, but was still confirmed by the Senate. (Fox News)
