So, about that FBI investigation

It appears "Doctor" Christine Ford may have perjured herself at the Senate hearings:
Testifying under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Christine Blasey Ford identified herself as a ‘psychologist,’ but records indict this is a false statement under California law. Someone at Stanford University also appears to have caught the blunder and edited Ford’s faculty page. Just one sentence into her sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford may have told a lie.

After thanking members of the committee on Thursday, and while under oath, Ford opened her testimony saying, “My name is Christine Blasey Ford, I am a professor of psychology at Palo Alto University and a research psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine.”

The issue lies with the word “psychologist,” and Ford potentially misrepresenting herself and her credentials, an infraction that is taken very seriously in the psychology field as well as under California law.

Under California law, as with almost every other state, in order for a person to identify publicly as a psychologist they must be licensed by the California Board of Psychology, a process that includes 3,000 hours of post-doctoral professional experience and passing two rigorous exams. To call oneself a psychologist without being licensed by a state board is the equivalent of a law school graduate calling herself a lawyer without ever taking the bar exam.

According to records, Ford is not licensed in the state of California.
The more this drags on, the worse it is going to get for Democrats. The fact that Stanford is already trying to whitewash its allegedly criminal actions doesn't bode well for Ms Ford or her credibility.

There is a view on our side that the FBI investigation is bad because it delays things.
I think it's not so bad. The FBI will come out with report saying that there is no case, even if the statute of limitations didn't pass.
Now wavering Senators can use the FBI report as cover.

Blogger OGRE September 29, 2018 9:38 AM  

Highly unlikely that would be considered or prosecuted as perjury or false swearing.

Assuming all of the above about 'psychologist' is true and that she violated some aspect of California law by referring to herself as such, the falsehood must be to a matter material to the tribunal's investigation for it to be satisfy the perjury elements. Misrepresenting one's CV isn't normally considered material unless its in the context of an expert witness or its central to the matter at hand.

If thats the only provable falsehood in her testimony, then at best we're looking at obstruction of justice, and even that would be a stretch.

A horrible precedent is being set here. So every time some lying bitch makes an allegation against a Republican or Republican appointee we have to roll over for some nebulous FBI investigation? What next, a full FBI investigation of the Ramirez and Swetnick allegations?

Maybe this time it works out for Republicans as far as the optics go. Maybe the Dems completely discredit themselves. Then again, maybe not. The longer this drags on, the more time the Dems have to find new lying bitches in order to open up new FBI investigations. It also gives them time to flip leftist Republicans like Flake, Collins, and Murkowski over to their side.

With a few exceptions, the Republicans have been nothing but weak and defensive throughout this entire thing. And as we know, you can't win as long as you only play defense.

First impression of her testimony I though the pubs were in deep trouble, but then that voice convinced me that it was all a bad acting job, and someone with a national audience ought burst that "brave woman" bubble we are in at the moment.

This line of argument sounds try-hard to me. I don't believe one has to be licensed psychologist (which is a medical practice accepting patients) in order to be a "Professor of psychology", which is a research/teaching position. Nor does one have to be a licensed attorney in order to be a law professor. It's up to the University who they hire and what titles they give.

Blogger OGRE September 29, 2018 10:16 AM  

I agree she is not a credible witness. But thats based upon the overall presentation of her testimony and her physical and verbal mannerisms.

But this is nitpicking and an ineffective line of attack, and could even be counter productive. Does she in fact work as a researcher in the field of psychology, and do most people in that field refer to that position as 'research psychologist?' If so then its not a very effective attack on her credibility, even if shes not an actual psychologist. Trying to paint her as a liar based just on that, as opposed to the other much stronger ways her testimony can be attacked, just makes us look like we are reaching. It plays into the oppositions narrative of 'they are all big meanies.'

If on the other hand nobody would refer to her position as a research psychologist, even with a relaxed and casual understanding of the term, then there might be something there; is she fabricating her actual position in order to bolster her credentials? It still wouldn't be perjury, but then it would be a stronger attack on her credibility.

There's also how she said she was arguing with her husband about remodeling in 2012 when the permit on the books is from 2008. Or how anons working from a tweet that was later scrubbed have discovered that a boy she was dating at the time lived in a house within walking distance of hers that has a floor plan just like what she described, so he's a far better candidate than Kavanaugh. Or how the Committee apparently offered to interview her in California and her lawyers kept that from her so they could drag her in front of the cameras in D.C. Or the fact that she and her dad glow in the dark.

Gee, it's almost like an investigation might be a good idea after all, and not a sign of imminent cucking. Imagine that.

She won't be charged.

You don't charge Ford. She's not the target. You bring her in and explain to her that you not only have her dead to rights on perjury, but you can out her as a liar in front of the whole country. You point out that the Democrats lied to her to get her crying on camera. Then you give her an out. She just has to admit it was really a different boy, or that her memory is so conflicted that she doesn't remember which one and she started thinking it was Kavanaugh after she started seeing his name and face in the news. Hell, that might even be true, but it can be "her truth," whatever. Then you frame it as Kavanaugh AND Ford being abused by Feinstein et al to try to destroy a good man and overthrow the duly elected president's right to fill Supreme Court spots. Then you charge Feinstein and Ford's lawyers with anything you can think of, whether it'll stick later or not.

Melanie Griffith acted it better, in a poor matinee I sat through, surprising her liver and center of balance both. The audience began to mutter and get restless. The 'professionals' on stage all had the strained smile of "get her off now". Ford did the same dying dog performance for every wife and mother with sons to see.

So? So is speeding, and drinking beer in public. And just like those things, this isn't even admissible in court to impeach a witness' credibility.

So we're stuck using this in the court of public opinion. Is this a persuasive attack? It doesn't even persuade everyone here. Does she work in the field of research psychology or not? Because unless she does not, this is just a distraction from the other much more serious attacks on her credibility. And I know you know that the shotgun approach is rarely an effective tactic.

And calling it perjury when it most certainly is not doesn't make this line of attack any stronger.

She lied about the second front door having been about her trauma happening in 2012, when the second front door was built in 2008 as part of a renovation for the purpose of renting. The second front door was for the renters, not some manifestation of her past trauma. All of the supposed witnesses deny or outright dispute, zero corroboration.

This may be a quibble, but one does not need to practice law to be a lawyer. "Lawyer" also means someone learned or trained in the law.

You're not allowed to practice or advertise yourself as someone able to practice law without being a member of the bar. I don't know for sure, but you probably can't call yourself an attorney.

None of that matters. Sen. Flake needed cover and so he asked for up to 1 week to give the FBI time to investigate. Flake's request was granted as he was the swing vote in sending Kavanaugh out of Committee.

The coverup or whitewash of Blasey-Ford's professional status (indeed her whole life it seems) is the smoking gun more than whether or not she is in actual violation of CA law by claiming to be a psychologist. Hell, her using the term "research psychologist" could be enough of an out.

It is a nice opening shot against her case overall as on the surface, she's violating CA law and states at times love to go after this to assert their power over licensing anything. The point about Joe the Plumber is apt as well.

One case where it backfired recently was in Oregon where the state board of engineers fined a man $500 for calling himself an engineer while writing a complaint letter about faulty traffic lights in his city. The man is originally from Sweden or Norway and had been an actual electrical engineer with a BS degree but... not licensed in Oregon.

TLDR, the man won his case, mostly because it seemed absurd to claim the state owned the word engineer, given general use of the word in society for almost anything like calling someone a sanitation engineer instead of janitor. As well as the fact that the he was correct that a local city was ripping people off with the timing of their traffic lights and proved it via math.

While I was initially disappointed with the 7 day delay, my second thought was the very high probability that without news (we have to wait for the FBI) the left is very likely to do something stupid and evil in addition to their continuing crazed screaming.

Indeed there is a reasonable chance they will have a Fukushima level nuclear meltdown that will turn #WalkAway into #RunAwayFromTheseCraziesAsFastAsYouCan.

Think a collective Mad Maxine Moment for the entire left, with more Lindsay Graham moments on the right.

That the infection will be clear enough and close enough to fatal to red-pill everyone who is not already brain dead.

I'm not ruling out some attempted assassination or other violence to "save the world from Trump and Kavanaugh".

SJWs always Double Down, and it is reaching exponential phase. From polite "not the right judicial temprament" (Bork) to weak attempted character assassination (Thomas), now to star chamber lying slanderellas, and they have been accelerating over the last few weeks desparate to prevent a pre-mid-term appointment.

Their choice is either to do something beyond the pale to sink Kavanaugh and expose their profound evil nature, or wait and nervously hope for an adequate blue wave during the mid-terms to bring a senate majority when the electoral map is against them.

Note it will only take one unhinged lefty to go beyond the pale (beyond the batshit crazy allegations). Then the rest are likey to pile on.

"So Sorry Senator R was assasasinated, but we need to take the vote today as scheduled".

Trump is a masterful judge of character - maybe his darker side allows him to recognize and predict what others without such genius will do.

"There has to be a penalty for malicious accusations, or you just encourage more of the same."

One reason so many women are buying this BS is because normal women don't make false accusations. They even police each other against doing it.

Roger Simon, former liberal----A real rape had taken place but it wasn't the one everyone was talking about. It was simultaneously a rape of Judge Kavanaugh, his family, and the American people themselves. The collateral damage was Dr. Ford, her friends, and her family. And the perpetrator was the Democratic Party, principally their Judiciary Committee members, their ranking member, and the minority leader.

Blogger Noah B. September 29, 2018 4:40 PM  

So this might not technically rise to the level of perjury, but it should still diminish Ford's credibility in the eyes of any rational observers who hadn't already concluded that she was lying. If she is working in research psychology, she should be well aware of the California requirement for a license before identifying oneself as a psychologist.

Agree. Do they still call programmers "software engineers" though? They did for many years, even in Texas

Democrats are slaves to the Big Lie. And so is any woman who had a bad experience with a cad in high school, didn't do anything about it, and now wants to take her hate/frustration/revenge out on Kavanaugh.

A horrible precedent is being set here. So every time some lying bitch makes an allegation against a Republican or Republican appointee we have to roll over for some nebulous FBI investigation?

There are no precedents being set. This entire episode has been too ridiculous a farce for that. Whatever happens next time will depend far more on how assertive the Right is willing to be with power. Same as this time.

If the Right is willing to be assertive, the next call for an FBI investigation will be met with "Na, we did that for you with Kavanaugh thing and it was a big waste of everyone's time. We're not doing it again."

Blogger VFM #7634 September 29, 2018 5:39 PM  

There has to be a reason the President is so calm about this. I'd expect him to be chewing out the Democrats if he knew there'd be a serious problem.

Again, I suspect the investigation is window dressing to satisfy Flake and the RINOettes. OF COURSE the SJWs are gonna SJW about this being "not enough" and "just the first step" etc etc.

Blogger Dave September 29, 2018 6:43 PM  

Do they still call programmers "software engineers" though?

An overwhelming majority of engineers across most of the engineering disciplines (mechanical, electrical, chemical, petroleum, etc) are not Professional Engineers. Other than civil engineers, roughly anywhere from 10-20% of engineers that graduate with a 4 year engineering degree from an accredited school go on to become Professional Engineers (PE's)

The primary reason to become a PE: Only a licensed engineer may prepare, sign and seal, and submit engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval, or seal engineering work for public and private clients.

Each state has their own PE licensing board, however it is fairly easy if one is a PE in one state to obtain a PE license in another state. Typically though, most PE's are only licensed in their state of residence, and perhaps one or two other states.

I'm not aware if states have a PE license for software engineers or any type of computer engineering.

Does the complainant open herself up to being investigated as well?

Blogger CYGNUS FACETIOUS September 29, 2018 7:24 PM  

Head canon: Someone -- perhaps Kavanaugh's HS 'twin' in the year book -- may well have sexually assaulted someone, someone Ford herself knew; yet said and did nothing, except confabulate herself into the event for political expediency at the behest of her glow-in-the-dark CIA Ugandan father/brother et. a. The Trump ordered FBI investigation into this Ramirez accuser is mysterious. Purely empty gesture? Were she to corroborate something which perjures Ford further would be a nice cherry on top of this farce.

If you were convinced that your enemies were controlled by a centuries old dark splinter cabal practicing cultish Italian Flatbread sacrifices,obsessed with Malthusian depopulation agendas, and if you possessed real first strike strategic weapons capability-- A 'New Pearl Habor Moment' was deemed necessary prior to 9/11. The danger now with these cornered rats would appear to be a 'Chernobyl Moment'. The French Frigate/Israeli fighter NATO provocation for a Gulf of Tonkin re-run wasn't ill conceived from their position. Things like this, the Hawaiian missile, and the Russian Ambassador assassination in Turkey . . . divine providence is needed to make our luck hold if they are as crazy as they sound in these Kavanaugh hearings.

@76- Yes, that was shameful. And it's not as if Joe the Plumber was asking in official capacity as a plumber. His occupation was irrelevant. He could have been a serial killer or a stay-at-home dad. The story was Obama's answer.

Blogger Zeroh Tollrants September 29, 2018 9:07 PM  

Don't forget, she said this epiphany came to her in 2012, during an argument over her home remodel and her desire for a double front door, (because she was afraid that a middle aged Judge Kavanaugh was going to travel all the way across the country to finish the aborted rape, I guess), yet according to pics online from the various real estate sites, she last remodeled her house in 2008, and the pics from 2010-2011-ish show the already installed double door, in the pics.
Also, she claims her BFF Leland, one of her witnesses, drove her home. She also claimed this Leland was also 15, same as she. I never knew a single upper middle class family back in the 80s who not only let their unlicensed daughter drive, with another unlicensed teen in the car, AND provided them with the car to do so. Now, maybe they were already both 16, but that's not what she said.
Of course, she also doesn't know the who, what, where, when, and how of her new found revelation, either.
The idea that a boy groping you and shoving you down on the bed and trying to get your clothes off wouldn't have stuck with a teen girl from a well-to-do good family, is completely preposterous to me.
I never believed a single thing that was said about this whole to-do, and I still don't to this day. I remember EVERY major event and the circumstances surrounding it, from that time period, even when I was a little pickled, and as I learned last night, I'm 6 mos old than Ms. Prof. Dr. CB Ford.
Frankly, I think she's got mental and emotional issues. She came off as one of those unhinged screwy old bags, to me.

Blogger justaguy September 29, 2018 9:57 PM  

What gets me, and this may be a guy thing: the idea that Prof. F didn't know the date or even the year seems so incredulous that I do not see how anyone could give any credence at all to her statement. To me this lack of a date was an attempt to keep Judge K from defending himself. If they randomly gave a date he could have been at a football camp or even been out of the state. To not know the date seems to me to be way to clever a way to prevent her from being shown to be a lair by a good abilis once Judge K had the accusation. The law would not even start an investigation without a date-- I don't know how any media talking head could not be pushing this point-- no date no credibility.

Their social media thought leaders like Rosie O'Donnell (why isn't she in prison for bribery?) and Jennifer Rubin are trying very hard to kick one off. They're not going to get out in front and lead any charges, though, so so far it's all talk. This week convinced me it's just a matter of time, though. The globalists will find a way to set them off rather than just accept a real rollback of their power.

Grassley has criminally referred anyone who misled the Judiciary Committee to the FBI amd DOJ investigation and for prosecution.

That could include Senators Whitehouse, Feinswine, etc.

Blogger Azimus September 30, 2018 5:58 AM  

According to Alan Dershowitz when speaking of Trump/Michael Flynn, an untrue statement can only rise to the level of perjury if it germaine to the investigation. If it is not, the lie/mis-statement only rises to "lying to the ____" (police, FBI, Congress, etc) and is not a serious crime. It would be hard to argue that technically mis-stating her profession is a perjurable offense. In any event who would bring this charge? It would have to be a senator - which politician wants to hang "publically attacked and jailed alleged rape victim" around their neck?

Has anyone looked into how long she's had those big nerd glasses? I suspect they are a deliberate part of her costume because of how they make her face look small and damaged. I was shocked at how different she looks when she took them off and put them on her head.

Blogger Damelon Brinn September 30, 2018 12:06 PM  

@96, it's funny you say "costume." There's a theory on the chans that she's actually Amy Schumer in old lady makeup. Apparently Schumer cancelled an appearance on very late notice that was scheduled for the day of the hearing, and there is a strong resemblance when you put Ford's younger pictures up next to hers.

I don't buy it, but it's funny, because people have tweeted Schumer to compliment her on the job she did. But clearly Ford is being played by Garth from Wayne's World.

only posting a single time.

Investigation will be over late Monday evening.
Corroborating evidence showing emails from a major news organization in order to defend itself once the FBI investigation was launched were turned over to the FBI to cover their ass.

>Report in order to cover themselves received information from a senator to push multiple stories but not all at once
>"We need these all spread out for maximum impact to delay his nomination and reclaim the seats needed to outlast the administration"
>reporter and news corp granted immunity for turning this over and protecting themselves once the investigation was officially launched they panicked and never expected the president to agree

Enjoy the shit storm. The allegations were staggered out to trigger public opinion calling for an FBI investigation when one was not needed because the senators receiving the allegations knew they were already faked/not credible. It was a coordinated smear campaign between 3 major newspapers and a news network.

DF is done.
Tuesday morning NEWS CYCLE is going to be glorious. The boss knows what he is doing.

Sincerely,
A girl with a job putting her in the middle of this.

@98 Crew, I saw that one too. Fits what we've seen so far, but I've seen a lot of "insider" reports that did and then fizzled. One point in favor of this one is that she did only post once. I think with LARPs, the temptation to stick around and eat up the attention is usually too great to post once and leave. Also, "the boss" rings true.

At least we'll know by Tuesday. If it's true that one of the MSM has been flipped and is feeding the White House intel, that would be yuge.

Blogger Damelon Brinn September 30, 2018 4:02 PM  

Aaaaand, the president's new tweet ends with "Stay tuned and watch!" He really seems to be signaling something more than just an FBI background check that says, "Yeah, he's clean, like we already said six other times."
