It’s official. On Tuesday, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), sent out a notice that the scheduled Thursday vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court was postponed. A hearing to allow Kavanaugh’s accuser and Kavanaugh to testify in front of the committee was still scheduled for the following Monday. However, things have now changed once again.
Grassley on Tuesday also raised the likelihood that the Monday hearing to examine sexual assault allegations could be canceled because the accuser had not yet accepted the committee’s invitation. The accuser had purportedly indicated recently that she was willing to testify before Congress.
Grassley stated on The Hugh Hewitt Show:
“We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours three or four times by email and we have not heard from them, and it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?”
Would failure to respond to an invitation mean that the accuser has gotten “cold feet” about testifying? Could it mean that she is no longer confident in her “story?”
It could be those reasons or any number of reasons why she hasn’t yet responded.
However, the moment the other male (teenager), Mark Judge, that the accuser claims was in the room on the night in question indicated that he didn’t want to be involved in the hearing, many on social media immediately condemned Kavanaugh as being guilty since they claimed Judge didn’t want to protect Kavanaugh (his friend) and “lie” for him under oath.
In other words, when a “man” in the current climate of #MeToo doesn’t want to step into the public arena for whatever reason, and remember he has NOT been accused of wrongdoing by anyone including Kavanaugh’s accuser, AUTOMATICALLY it is assumed that he is guilty himself or covering up for his “friend’s” guilt.
Men are often at a real disadvantage in the U.S. today when it comes to being viewed as “trustworthy” or “credible,” especially when a female accuser is involved.
There is a long history in this country of automatically believing the female accuser regarding alleged sexual misconduct without first hearing the accused’s side of the story.
Don’t believe me?
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) appeared on “CBS This Morning” and said that Christine Blasey Ford, the woman behind the allegations, has “nothing to gain” by stepping forward.
“I think it’s going to be about, it comes down to credibility…and it’s going to about listening to what each party has to say, but I believe her.”
No testimony. No opportunity for the “accused” to face his “accuser” and Harris has already found Kavanaugh “guilty.”
Who could blame Judge for not wanting to be thrown into such a chaotic atmosphere when he has no requirement or legal obligation to do so?
Maybe Judge doesn’t want to be “sacrificed” on the Democrats’ “unholy altar” where Kavanaugh is currently finding himself.
Judge issued a written statement, forwarded to the committee by his attorney, Barbara Van Gelder which read:
“I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone asked me to be involved. The only reason I am involved is that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford remembers me as the other person in the room during the alleged assault.
In fact, I have no memory of this alleged incident,” Judge said in his statement to the committee. “Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes.
“I have no information to offer the Committee and I do not wish to speak publicly regarding the incidents described in Dr. Ford’s letter.”
Sen. Orrin Hatch, (R-Utah), told reporters Monday that Kavanaugh denied allegations that he committed sexual assault at a high school party in the early 1980s and also told the senator he was not at a party similar to what his accuser described.
What should Judge’s statement reasonably imply?
Judge’s written statement indicates, “In fact, I have no memory of this alleged incident…” and implies that perhaps neither Kavanaugh nor Judge have any memory of the incident because IT NEVER HAPPENED, THEY WERE NOT AT THE EVENT DESCRIBED BY THE ACCUSER OR IF IT DID HAPPEN, IT WASN’T AS THE ACCUSER DESCRIBED?
However, regardless of Kavanaugh’s innocence or guilty, it has become clear that Democrats are prepared to do whatever it takes to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
Democrats are now calling for more witnesses and even an FBI probe before they are willing to even consider a vote. (Not that Democrats intend to vote “yes” for Kavanaugh but they don’t want to appear dishonest before the American public.)
Why are Democrats calling for additional information and an FBI probe when they previously called only for a hearing?
Bottom line, Democrats never intended to allow Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court Justice and it’s another tactic either to delay or extinguish his chances of doing so.
“Interesting that Democrats are suggesting the need for more witnesses when they won’t even join on the basic background phone calls to start planning the hearing. The games continue.”

The Department of Justice issued a statement on Monday that no potential federal crime” was committed by Kavanaugh.
And the Democrats’ deception continued on Tuesday.
As if the current Democrat “sham” wasn’t enough, late Tuesday, Kavanaugh’s accuser said an FBI investigation should be a “first step” before she agrees to testify, according to The New York Times.
Does anyone else find the timing of her request, which is in lockstep with the Democrats’ call for an FBI probe, to be just a little suspicious? #sarcasm
Who contacted the accuser or accuser’s lawyer and “suggested” that the accuser follow the Democrats’ lead? It seems difficult to believe that no one did given the timing and circumstances.
What should the GOP do now?
GOP, put on your big girl and big boy pants and stop falling for every charade the Democrats throw your way!
Get the RINOs like Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Lisa Murkowsi (R-AK) to toe the Party line and confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court NOW without delay!
