Allegations that Kavanaugh, in a drunken state during his first year at Yale University, dangled his penis in the face of an equally drunken female student, Deborah Ramirez, were immediately and forcefully denied not only by the Supreme Court nominee himself but by the White House.
The allegations were contained in a piece by The New Yorker published on Sunday, which noted:
After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.
“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name — and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building — against these last-minute allegations,” Kavanaugh said in a statement.
The White House pushed back as well, dissecting the New Yorker piece paragraph by paragraph, pointing out inconsistencies as well as statements of fact that couldn’t possibly ever be considered serious legal arguments in a court of law, let alone warrant an FBI investigation.
But then, Democrats who are assisting with this seemingly concocted story aren’t pushing for investigations (not really) or confirmations of allegations by Ramirez and, last week, Christine Blasey Ford.
They want disruption of the process. They aren’t interested in “justice” for these women, their sole interest is in keeping Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court or, at a bare minimum, tainting him with the same stench of false allegations as they did Justice Clarence Thomas in the early 1990s.
These facts were revealed in the New Yorker story, in fact. One of the story’s authors, Ronan Farrow, admitted as much. During a Monday interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” program, Farrow said of Ramirez, “She came forward because Senate Democrats came looking for this claim. She did not flag this. This came to the attention of people on the Hill independently, and it has cornered her into an awkward position. She said, point-blank, I don’t want to ruin anyone’s life, but she feels this is a serious claim.”
Right. So, in order not to ruin someone’s life, you go ahead and conspire with Democrats and their mainstream media allies to ruin someone’s life, or attempt to anyway.
This was all predictable and in fact, it was predicted.
On his nationally syndicated radio show last week, top talker Rush Limbaugh said:
I’m telling you right now it’s already in the works with, and I know it’s in the works because I heard a Drive-By Media person talking about it. The Drive-By Media person was Karen Tumulty of the Washington Post who says she wouldn’t be surprised if more women surface over the weekend alleging similar acts by Kavanaugh. She’s just telegraphed that they’re out there trying to find women that they can convince to come forward and say what they want them to say. You know they’re working on that.
And sure enough, just like magic, it happened.
Meanwhile, these allegations are also the Democrats’ and their propaganda media’s way of changing the subject. As Washington Examiner contributor Dan Hannan pointed out in a column on Monday, the incessant noise over Kavanaugh’s confirmation is crowding out any Republican talk of a massively growing economy or Democrats’ attempts to talk about the ballooning budget deficit.
Democrats are blowing up the nomination process and the rule of law at the same time. They don’t care what happens to the country.
