A new Kavanagh bombshell

This one is hard to believe, but the accuser is indubitably credible:
I've always thought, as most people do, that John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Theater on April 4, 1865.  But after spending six days talking with lawyers from the Democratic Party to help me refresh my memory, I've come to realize that it wasn't John Wilkes Booth at all, but rather Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

I had no memory of this happening as recently as last week, but today, it is as clear as day.  I remember Kavanaugh coming up from behind the president of the United States and aiming a pistol at him.  Only I'm not sure it was at Ford's Theater.  It might have been at Ford's Theater, but it might also have been on the Mall, or in the White House, or on Capitol Hill.  I'm a little hazy on the day, too.  It might have been April 4, 1865, but it also could have been a few days before or after, maybe even as early as 1864.

The problem is that I had a few minor memory gaps.  I don't remember what happened right before or right after the shooting.  I don't remember exactly who was there and who wasn't.  All I remember clearly is that Brett Kavanaugh did it.
Why hasn't the Secret Service arrested Brett Kavanagh for the murder of Abraham Lincoln already? We need a Special Counsel to investigate the Trump administration's actions concerning this potentially unlawful coverup!


UPDATE: If you want to comment on Ford's appearance in front of the Senate, this would be the place.

"Here's the key line: 'He described his recollection of their interaction in some detail, as if this person has some more details, some more recollection than Judge Kavanaugh, who has denied it.'"

IIRC from discussions with our security people, polygraphs are unreliable because of the ability to "manage" results by interviewer or interviewee. That's why the call for all the paperwork and charts collected. Also doesn't account for neuroses.

This is why they do extensive background investigations, looking for the dog that didn't bark. Unless you're a chief of counterintelligence, it's truly hard to make things like that disappear.

Until there's real, serious consequences for this kind of nonsense it will continue. The only thing Leftoids listen to besides their own emotions is external suffering. As long as they can cast an accusation wrench with no consequences it becomes a tactic they will use at every opportunity. More than a few people have suggested the legal standard of "SOMEONE'S going to jail for this" to remedy the situation; the accuser if it turns out they brought charges falsely, the accused if they did it. Despite the pitfalls of such a system applied broadly, it's starting to look like a good solution for a few select situations like this.

Blogger Damelon Brinn September 27, 2018 10:41 AM  

It should be easy to pass a polygraph if you're using a memory of something that really happened to you and just pinning it on someone else, which has been a going theory on this for a while. If you really hate the new face because he's an evil conservative who might threaten your abortifacient business, you and your therapist can probably even insert the new face in your memory, enough to answer a question or two with his name.

So the silver lining is that we can get those kids--who are now in their 50s--to teach the FBI about how to keep secrets! Hell, they should even RUN the FBI. Why waste such talent on the Supreme Court, for Heaven's sake? Why, if THEY had been in charge of the People's Pantsuit's server, she'd be president today! Problem solved!

What's revolting is you know the great majority on the Left do not believe any of the accusers, either. From the senators I have heard who plan to vote against Kavanaugh, all have taken care to emphasize that these late accusations are not their reasons. Every single one of the US Senators know what a political hitjob looks like, they know what this is.


But truth doesn't matter, it is entirely irrelevant to them. This is yet another display of the Left's disgusting will to power. These women who accuse are minions useful as blades in the scrum, to be discarded later. And even the accusers know that -- they are proud to among a martyr-like Suicide Squad of sorts.

The ironic thing is that if Kavanaugh can get a seat on the bench and has child sacrifice er, um… "abortion" revoked, women will actually be safer and a lot less likely to be assaulted. Those "women" slandering Kavanaugh are actually helping cause more assault.

Lie detectors do not detect lies. They measure subtle physical indicators of psychological stress. Anybody who knows how to manage those indicators can fake a lie detector, as can anyone who feels no psychological stress when lying, or who is so stressed out that the tress of lying is lost in the background. So lie detectors are useless on meditators, people who live with chronic pain, anyone who's attended a couple of biofeedback sessions, most psychologists, neurotics and psychopaths.

Blogger The Remnant September 27, 2018 11:19 AM  

This isn't even about Kavanaugh. It's about the ongoing war against white male heterosexuals, who are (rightly) perceived as counter-revolutionaries who are sick and tired of the lunacy that has consumed America's institutions, not least of which is the Supreme Court. My response to the lunacy has been to distance myself from the diseased institutions as much as possible and enjoy watching them collapse. While I applaud Kavanaugh for working hard to make it onto the court and try to salvage it, this insane spectacle might prove that abandonment is indeed a better approach than salvage.

Polygraphs are "unreliable" because at the very best all they can demonstrate is if the taker really believes their own bullshit. There is no objective measure of "truth" involved.

Blogger OGRE September 27, 2018 11:47 AM  

@50 Cloom Glue

leading questions are best ("you didn't see X, did you?" "Aren't you the one who opened the door?"), but the prosecutor woman isn't using them. Prosecutors are mostly skilled at direct questioning, helping the witness introduce testimony, not testing the testimony via cross exam. Obviously there are more considerations at play here aside from a surgical cross exam, but thus far the prosecutor has done little more than lay foundation.

Humor would be almost useless in this setting and possibly detrimental. Don't avoid it but absolutely do not manufacture it here.

Fords gone into using a verbal uptick, this is often an attempt to convince the listener of something the speaker doesn't personally believe.

Given her 9yo speaking voice in her 50+yo body, she well may have had some significant trauma in childhood and could be mentally transposing Kavanaugh into some event that actually happened to her.

None of it matters though. They don't need to convict him here. All they want is to call for an 'investigation' to delay any confirmation vote till after the midterms. Everything today will be geared toward that goal.

Blogger Damelon Brinn September 27, 2018 11:58 AM  

Is humour useful?

I was just thinking that in a sane world, Kavanaugh's part would start with him and Grassley sharing a laugh over how ridiculous this was. But in that sane world, they wouldn't be there. They probably have to stick with their strategy of being fair-but-firm and respectfully let the lady prosecutor pick apart her testimony. She's already contradicted herself a few times on things like who got there first and how loud the music was, so they can come back to those any time. But they'll save their open anger for the architects of this like Avenatti and Feinstein, not the crying woman.

No one there thinks she's telling the truth. It's all theater so they can use quotes and clips from it in the midterms. They already know how they're going to vote, which will be based on the same political calculations it would have been if the Dems had never hatched this scheme.

I spent about an hour last night watching the Clarence Thomas hearings. That guy is a hero there is no other way to put it. He was dragged through the mud for weeks. Orrin Hatch asked him if he was going to withdraw to which he replied he would rather die than do so. What did he take the weight of the world onto his shoulders and pass through the fire for? It certainly wasn't for an extra $20,000/yr in salary. He did it on principle. For the truth. Guy is a standup m-fer. And we, the normies, are the benefactors of Thomas hurling these fiends back into the abyss where they came from. It bought us a lot of time.

Dems have no such problem, they don't need honorable people for their brand of governance. In fact, that would be a serious detriment, as any honor or class might get in the way of selling people out and ripping them off. But our side kinda relies on it. The fact that D.C. has become such a scum pit is why the effing GOPe acquired so many fakes like Flake and McCain.

It won't happen (yet) but the real response the GOP Senate should have to this absurd hatchet job would be to first confirm Kavanaugh, then kick DiFi and Schumer off all of their committees effective immediately, and start hearing on whether or not to remove them from the Senate itself.

Polygraphs.

Former intel guy. The US military used to give a course on beating a poly. Classified, of course. Now that information is online.

It's simple: There are three types of questions on a polygraph. Control Questions. Relevant Questions. Irrelevant Questions.

Irrelevant Question: "What is your name?"
Relevant Question: "Did Mr. Kavanaugh attempt to sexually assault you on ?"
Control Question: "Have you ever lied about anything in your life?"


The control questions, usually 3-4 of them, are set up before hand. For example, let's say you're being polygraphed because you work at a bank and someone at the bank stole 5 grand. Everyone has stolen something in their life. Everyone. Even if it's a pencil at work.

The polygrapher will get you to admit you stole a pencil from work. Ok, so that's the biggest thing you've ever stolen? Yes. Well, when we get to that question, since I already know about the pencil, you can honestly answer "No." on that question, ok? Got it.

So when you get to the question, "Have you ever stolen anything?" That's a control question. You'll pop hot on it and it gives a model for the relevant question, "Did you steal money from the bank at which you work?"

To beat the polygraph? Simple. Pop hot as hell on the control question. When you get to the control question (pick one, perhaps two, but not all of them because that's suspicious) bite your tongue and change your breathing pattern. You'll spike the blood pressure monitor with the tongue bite (and it's completely undetectable, unlike tightening up your sphincter muscle in your ass because some polygraphers have you set on a pad to detect that, even though it works great because tightening up that muscle shoots the blood pressure through the roof). Also, the breathing pattern change is seen too. A simple change in breathing pattern: Hold your breath 5-7 seconds after the control question.

Now... you've blown the needles through the roof on the control question where you are EXPECTED to show hot. But when you lie about taking the money, the reaction, if there is one, will be mild in comparison.

Simple.

Someplace out there is a Italian love song. The theme is a man soliciting a women for sex, and one of his lines is that she does not have to worry because he says, "I will take the blame." That does seem to be what it is about for a lot of women. What ever the hell happened is okay if the man takes the blame. For whatever reason, some women are unable or unwilling to see past this impulse, and so that is what you get.

Given the low standards of proof here, no standard at all actually, I am somewhat surprised that there have not been a whole lot of other women coming forward with claims. Hundreds would not surprise me even if Kavanaugh isn't into this sort of thing. And of course unlike Cosby or Clinton, a general lack of supporting evidence.

The Democrats have set a new standard


no, they have not.

they accused Reagan of wanting to make slaves out of blacks and trying to feed dog food to grandma.

Robert Bork got fucked so hard by the Judiciary Committee that his name entered the political lexicon back in the 80s: to be Borked.

Clarence Thomas was slandered but made it through due to his skin color in spite of Anita Hill lying about him.

Mitt Romney was falsely accused of having falsified his tax returns and "not paying any taxes for 10 years".

by the sitting Senate Majority leader.

After the election, Reid called the attack "one of the best things I've ever done". He also said, "Romney didn't win, did he?"

Their god is *power* and their theology is *expedience.* That's why it's stupid and pointless for Pollyanna to point out their "double standard" or their (gasp!) "hypocrisy." The Bolsheviks don't give a tinker's damn about being called hypocrites. EXPEDIENCE is the only thing.

It's time to look things in the eye, too, and call them by their right name. The Democrats are dead and gone. They are Bolsheviks now. Or Jacobins, Or Stand's foot soldiers. Suit yourself, but let's not call them "democrats" again. They are no more democratic than "liberals" are liberal.

Power and expedience. That's all you need to remember. Everything else is peripheral.

It's why they always show up at knife fights armed with sharp knives and the *will* to use them to greatest effect. But the GOPes show up at knife fights armed with a note pad, a pencil, and yammering about "civility" and "due process."

This is absolutely correct. Even when subjected to vigorous cross-examination that in theory should expose any inconsistencies or falsehoods in a given testimony, the trier of fact is limited to judging only the witness' belief in their own memory of an event, not the actual event itself.

Something of a side point, but the Left commenters will keep going back to Garland a lot. Partially as a dodge of dealing with the issue, but also because of the deep wound it left on them.

I think a lot of the cucks in the GOPe weren't necessarily always as cuckish, but they gave in to the Swamp a long time ago. So, when the winds changed radically, they've returned to a more normal posture. (Also, Q straight up said a lot of people were freed from their chains. We're starting to see that play out.)

Hatch had been rotten for a long time, or has been a Deep State captive for 40 years.

They're pissed off because Trump isn't inviting THEM to play golf with him.

I am gobsmacked by this new and improved GOP.

Blogger S1AL September 27, 2018 6:38 PM  

I think a lot of it is that the GOP made the same mistake as a lot of the right, generally - assuming that left is decent but misguided. The mask came off today. Every Republican politician watching this is saying "I could be next".

DiFi keeps getting pulled front and center about concealing this surprise. I need to check Robert's Rules; it'd be hilarious if the chairman can declare her out of order and make her leave immediately, and same for the vote.

Well, it's over now, and all the dems had the entire hearing were outright lies, insinuations, questions in bad faith, and angling to attempt rhetorical killshots.

It was amazing to see how many times Kavanagh ignored their traps and refused to play into their frame.

Using a separate prosecutor to appear "fair" was typical GOP cowardice. So glad Senator Graham saw that and interjected himself into the questioning. If only they did so from the beginning this would have ended up more lopsided than it did.

What stupid narrative are you trying to push?

Was I not being clear? The GOP has a penchant for playing "nice." Kavanaugh was fighting for himself until the republicans grew a spine and tossed the prosecutor at the halfway point.

Good to see the DEMs are letting their mask slip a bit. Soon it will fall away completely and the lublip will see the insanity staring us in the face.

Blogger Steampunk Koala September 27, 2018 7:13 PM  

It was certainly more entertaining than the usual fare. I'm still skeptical that this is the beginnings of a proper spine, but the GE has done some amazing things already. If the confirmation vote goes without a hitch and we avoid this idiotic 'FBI background check' nonsense I might actually have some hope for this Congress.

Without busting a blood vessel in my head just yet, I would only like to make two simple points....

First, many people seem to be completely confused about the special sex crimes prosecutor from Arizona (Mitchell) and her role in doing the questioning for the Judiciary Committee. Her expert reputation is built on going after MEN accused by WOMEN, with the purpose being to convict the MEN of crimes. She is not there to "examine" the (woman) accuser and I seriously doubt she ever has. Her bag is hanging MEN and sending them to prison, not separating fact from fiction by the accuser, not defending the accused, and definitely not prying the truth from the accuser! Katz (Ford's attorney) played her part with earlier objections to Mitchell as "unfair" and "disrepectful" to the accuser. (Reminded me of B'er Rabbit begging B'er Fox to not toss him in the briar patch, when he was stuck to the Tar Baby.)

Second, of course this is entirely political and derailing the nomination is only the small part of the deal. The real reason for this Kabuki theater by the Democrats is to interest the women of this country in voting in the mid-term elections. Yes, let's be frank. Women are not too interested in National Income Accounting, or taxes, or tariffs, or the Federal budget, or even the future of Western Civilization. They are not even particularly interested in the Leftist Liberal Agenda, or Global Warming, or gay/lesbian/tranny "rights", or the endless wars in the Middle East. What will get their attention and keep it is sex, particularly sex scandals, especially where the helpless female victims are wrongly abused and then re-abused by those awful guys. With women it is always alter ego. The purpose of all this is to get out the women vote in a little over a month for the mid-term elections. Kavanaugh was just a convenient back to ride on. Nothing else matters.

Genius of the GE is laid bare again: with Kavanaugh running first through the gauntlet now drawing all the fire, it’s not like they can do the same thing for Barrett as Ginsburg’s replacement.

Oh they’ll try something, sure. But she’ll remove a whole line of types of attacks from the table.

@85- Lie detectors are confidence games, then. If you get conned, you're a liar or a truth-teller. If you don't, it's "inconclusive."

@43- Update: I discover Dr. Prof. Ford is in the educational side of psychology. Educationists are known for putting on airs and demanding to be addressed as "doctor." My junior high principaltrix did.

Wikipedia says she designs statistical models for research projects. Bear that in mind next time you think about the Replication Crisis.

Blogger tublecane September 27, 2018 8:21 PM  

@192- I must admit this strategy for bringing out the woman vote is better than the Clinton campaign's. They thought Alicia Machado would be the kill shot. (The line of thought being she's hot and Trump called her a pig, most women won't think they're as hot as her, therefore Trump definitely called them pigs.)

> Two weeks ago half the D party base considered her a " Becky."

Oh, they still do. She's merely useful at the moment.

Watch them throw Ford under the bus over the next week. I think Feinstein already started.

Cernovich thinks Ford seems kind... I saw a looney Californian liberal with a fragile grasp on sanity.

Dude, she grew up in Maryland and went to college in North Carolina. She's an east coast looney.
