Revision as of 13:24, 22 September 2018

Kavanaugh smear refers to the unsubstantiated slander made against Judge Brett Kavanaugh by liberals and anti-originalists upset of the prospect of losing the U.S. Supreme Court for the first time since 1934. The allegation is a claim that Kavanaugh tried to rape Christine Blasey Ford, who would later go on to become a far-left[1] university professor in California.

Several factors point to the allegations against Kavanaugh being false:

  • Despite knowing of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh for several weeks and having the opportunity to get to the truth during the regular hearings, Senate Democrats stayed silent about them until the last possible moment.[2] Afterward, they refused to hold a fair hearing, opting instead to abandon due process and consider Kavanaugh guilty with no evidence.[3] Democrats ignored[4] the numerous threats made against Kavanaugh and his family,[5][6] and some Democrats mocked the threats made against swing-vote Senators.[7] They even considered impeaching Kavanaugh in the event of him being confirmed.[8]
  • Dozens of women who knew Kavanaugh well as early as his time in high schools have attested to him being very respectful toward women.[9] The alleged witnesses that Ford named all affirmed that the event did not happen.[10] Meanwhile, despite Democrats obsessing over the allegations, they defended people useful to their cause such as Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, Cory Booker,[11] and Keith Ellison,[12] as well as taking money from woman-abusers[13] (see also: Left-wing war on women). Real victims of rape, such as Juanita Broaddrick, disputed Ford's account.[14]
  • Despite claiming to want to testify, Ford balked when Senate Republicans actually tried to find a time for her to come, and then she demanded outrageous and unprecedented conditions in order to attend.[15] This was in order to delay any votes on Kavanaugh's confirmation as far into the future as possible.[16] Ford's lawyers also refused to cooperate with the Senate judiciary committee, missed deadlines to respond, and kept asking for more time.[17] This was despite the fact that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley was extremely generous in trying to accommodate Ford.[18]
  • Ford hired prominent Democrat operative Ricki Seidman – who worked for Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama – to advise her after the allegation was made public.[19] Earlier, Seidman publically stated that she and other Democrats were plotting to destroy Kavanaugh's nomination once it was announced in July 2018.[20] Additionally, two of Ford's attorneys agreed after the allegations became public to headline a fundraiser for Democrat Senator Tammy Baldwin, though they canceled it once their plans became known to the public.[21] One of the main attorneys – Debra Katz, a Democrat donor who defended Bill Clinton and Al Franken[22] – representing Ford publically made statements opposing President Trump earlier in his term.[23]
  • Ford and Senate Democrats demanded that the FBI investigate her allegations – however, the allegation did not involve a federal crime,[24] was too vague and far into the past for an FBI investigation to be of any value, and Congress traditionally investigates such matters.
  • Ford and her lawyers refused to reveal who paid for the polygraph test – a notoriously unreliable method of determining whether one is telling the truth – she allegedly took and how it was conducted – essential questions to determine how seriously to take its findings.[25]
  • Ford's yearbooks show that she and her friends willingly supported the promiscuous, drunken, and racist culture at her school.[26]
  • Ford admitted to not knowing many details of the alleged incident, even including how many people were involved.[27]
