Never ascribe to malice what can easily be explained by incompetence.

Now watch the Left trash her viciously, thereby demonstrating once again that all their glib talk about supporting any group or anything is simply duplicitous. The Left doesn't give a hoot about anyone. They use everyone and everything to further their own agenda.
Murkowski doesn't believe Ford but opposes BK because Democrats believe Ford, thereby subordinating her judgment to opponents who believe the opposite of what she does, at the same time wanting us to believe that she is acting out of some higher principle she hasn't articulated.
In other words, no idea what's going on in Sen. Murkowski's head. The pity of it is she, more than anyone else in the entire Senate, has the political flexibility to vote any which way she wants. If only she can figure out what her higher principle is.

1. The New Yorker Today
This excruciatingly laborious piece is a garbage pail of the same old tendentious nonsense with apparently one important new nugget. Read the article if you have time or read next couple of tweets. newyorker.com/news/news-desk…2. The nugget: Brett Kavanaugh's classmate Appold told another classmate Wetstone about Ramirez incident; Wetstone confirmed hearing from Appold about it. Appold, however, said he had heard it from another unnamed classmate who he has not been able to contact to confirm.

One Glaring Flaw Exonerates Judge Kavanaugh
The thing is we don't need a litany of flaws in Dr. Ford's testimony, most of which could be honest inconsistencies. There is one overarching flaw/lie that totally exonerates Judge Kavanaugh in my view. 1/
Dr. Ford has not claimed a repressed memory of the assault that she retrieved through therapy. To the contrary, she claimed the assault was seared into her memory and she never ever forgot it. She told her husband about it even in 2002, and her therapist in 2012 and 2013. 2/

1. Karma Works in Mysterious Ways
Top Republicans say they're seeing a surprising and widespread surge in GOP voter enthusiasm, powered largely by support for Brett Kavanaugh and his Supreme Court nomination.
2. "The Kavanaugh debate has dropped a political grenade into the middle of an electorate that had been largely locked in Democrats' favor for the past six months," said Josh Holmes, a former top aide to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

1. Trump Family Finance (key excerpts from WSJ)
Being Fred Trump’s son was good for business. Being President, not so much.
2. Last year MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow revealed tax data suggesting that Donald Trump is not nearly as good as Warren Buffett when it comes to avoiding federal income taxes.

This should be held "very close" just like @SenFeinstein held Christine Ford's letter, and then leaked only when it suits Democrats' political purposes. Is that it?
No wonder @SenFeinstein doesn't want the FBI report released publicly. Look what happened when FBI met with Leland Keyser, Dr. Ford's lifelong friend who according to Dr. Ford was at the party where the assault took place. This is not old news. This is from this past Saturday.

I know this. We are doomed as a society if we abandon rigors of due processe for each and every person accused of a crime and replace it with the trope that classes of victims must be believed without evidence, no matter how sympatheic the victims or how heinous the crimes.
As for the appeal to "arguments at stake" let us never forget this. We were ennobled by not abandoning the due process even at Nuremberg trials.

1. Hypothesis Re: Dr. Ford's Sexual Assault
According to her therapist's notes, Dr. Ford said she was assaulted in her late teens in mid 1980's by 4 boys. In her SJC testimony she said her academic performance suffered during her college years because of the experience.
2. The above data would indicate that the sexual assault on Dr. Ford took place shortly before or during her freshman year in college, instead of during her sophomore year in high school. This would also explain why her academic performance in high school did not suffer.

1. Kavanaugh vs. Ford
I absolutely hate how Judge Kavanaugh and his family has been made to suffer egregiously based on what continues to be hearsay so far.
Yet, I feel no animus toward Dr. Ford, and it is not because of her sympathetic testimony delivered in a child's voice.
2. In my mind, even if Dr. Ford is later proven to have a false memory, I will not hold her accountable for destroying a good man's reputation, so long as she did not fabricate the whole story willfully, knowing it to be false from day one.

How ironic would it be if a move (FBI investigation) designed by the Democrats to sabotage Judge Kavanaugh's nomination ends up decimating Democrats' reputation. FBI should investigate everything around Dr. Ford's accusation, including an accounting of who's pulling the strings.
I would hate to see anyone going after Dr. Ford's personal life (FBI is free to do so as needed) or her family's. I believe that is the wrong way to go about it. What needs to be exposed are the partisan interest groups and operatives exploiting her situation for political gain.

Dr. Ford is credible in terms of what she believes and impressive in her presentation.
Rachel Mitchell is quite empathetic, professional, and impressive.
This is shaping up to be quite informative, in no small part because everyone will be on their very best behavior today.
July 30 - Aug 7 (What Happened That Week Is Key)
Dr. Ford admitted she does not know who paid for the polygraph test. Knowing how Dr. Ford got in touch with the law firm that is representing her now is key, but her attorneys will fight tooth and nail for that not to be revealed.

1. The Polygraph Released
Christine Blasey Ford polygraph regarding Kavanaugh assault allegation has been released. The polygraph was taken on Aug 7, 2018. A total of two questions were asked and answered (the questions were reviewed with Blasey prior to the test). 2. I am no expert on polygraph tests, but these questions seem to be designed to ensure she passes the test with flying colors, especially if the questions had already been reviewed/rehearsed with her.

-- Democrats have no idea how many anti-Trump independents and Republicans they have pushed into having second thoughts.

1. Kavanaugh The Monk
Unwittingly Kavanaugh has issued this challenge to all the sleazeball Democrats: Forget sexual assault, if you can even find evidence that I had consensual sex with anyone before I was in my mid-twenties, I am out.
2. Just imagine how easy Kavanaugh has made it for the Democrats. Just one person has to come forward with corroborated evidence that they had consensual sex with Kavanaugh any time before 1985, and Kavanaugh will be proven a liar.

1. Why the Left Is Consumed With Hate
Shelby Steele is one of the most preeminent thinkers of today in my books. This excerpt from him is just about the most insightful commentary on the left I have seen this year. 2. Today’s left lacks worthy menaces to fight. It is driven to find a replacement for racism, some sweeping historical wrongdoing that morally empowers those who oppose it. (Climate change?) Failing this, only hatred is left.

The Shark Has Jumped The Democratic Party
When Michael Avenatti scurries aggressively to join the team Feinstein, who do you think gets discredited? Democrats have made their bed. Now Avenatti will sleep in it.
Avenatti-Feinstein is lit AF.
These Memory Lanes are Littered with Booze and Lawyers
For all the wooziness in Dr. Ford's allegation, her memory was jogged allegedly on a therapist's couch in 2012.
Deborah Ramirez's memory was jogged only recently by having six days of strategic discussions with her lawyer.
On a day 35 years ago, Deborah Ramirez, whose Catholic upbringing required her not to touch a penis until after marriage but placed no limits on alcohol, was so sloshed she couldn't tell the real thing from a plastic toy, but distinctly recalls someone mentioning Kavanaugh's name

1. A Clear Perspective On Dr. Ford
With due sensitivity to and sympathy for any personal trauma Dr. Ford has suffered in her life, let us be as clear as possible about her objective based on her explicit actions, behaviors, and statements.
2. Dr. Ford has stated that she does not recollect when or where her alleged assault took place, nor any recollection of how she got to that place or how she got back home from that place. However, the incident in question took place some 35-36 years ago.

1. WSJ: Is Trump Creating New Republicans?
Much of the media is trying to persuade Latinos to dislike the GOP but it’s a tougher sale than expected.
2. Media and the Democrats thought that President Trump’s rhetoric and policies around immigration, especially the issue of separating children from their parents at the border, would be a catalyst for higher Latino engagement in 2018.
