As you likely know, Democrats have come out in full-throated support of allegations made by at least three women against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, despite the fact that the women themselves, as well as their charges, are not credible and their claims uncorroborated. Witnesses they have named have denied they were present during the alleged incidents, and in the case of Christine Blasey Ford, her charges are so thin and inconsistent a 25-year veteran sexual crime prosecutor said they don’t even rise to the level of “he said, she said.”
Nevertheless, Democrats have demanded everyone suspend their disbelief and heartily support Ford and the other women not because they are right or that proof is needed, but simply because they are women and thus, in the #MeToo era, should be believed outright just for making the allegation.
This attitude was epitomized by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., who declared before Kavanaugh had given one word of testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week to answer the charges, “…[W]hatever he says tomorrow, it will not change my view (about opposing his confirmation). And I’ve already read Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony and I believe her.”
Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said something similar. “The credibility is there for her. So, I believe her,” she told The New York Times (and she’s a member of the Judiciary Committee – so constitutional ‘advice and consent’ for judicial nominees is now arbitrary and not subject to factual evidence or provable information).
“This whole idea that the Republicans have, that women just sit around making these things up, that is not borne out by the reality,” she added.
Do you get that? A woman makes an allegation and so it must be believed, period – sans evidence, sans corroboration, sans an investigation.
But isn’t that a standard Democrats have imposed just on Republicans and conservatives?
Absolutely it is, and Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., is proof of it.
As The Daily Caller reports, a lawyer hired by the Minnesota Democratic Party to look into allegations of domestic abuse against Ellison – who, by the way, is running to become attorney general for his state (not even kidding) – is calling the accuser’s charges “unsubstantiated.”
An ex-girlfriend of Ellis’, Karen Monahan, a Left-wing activist, has accused him of physically and emotionally abusing her during the years they were together.
The decision by the state party “to conclude that the allegation is unsubstantiated,” according to a version of lawyer Susan Ellingstad’s report obtained by The Associated Press, stems from Monahan’s refusal to turn over a video she says would prove her allegations.
Ellingstad noted further, according to the AP, “An allegation standing alone is not necessarily sufficient to conclude that conduct occurred particularly where the accusing party declines to produce supporting evidence that she herself asserts exists.”
Further, “She has thus repeatedly placed the existence of the video front and center to her allegation, but then has refused to disclose it.”
So, which is it – women should be believed just because they accuse, or they shouldn’t sans evidence?
It obviously depends on which side of the political aisle the accused stands on. If he’s a conservative constitutionalist judge, he’s guilty (sans evidence), but if he’s a Democrat, then we not only have to have hard evidence but there has to be corroboration of same as well.
“Keith Ellison is being investigated by the party that endorsed his candidacy after multiple allegations of domestic violence. Any claim that this is an independent investigation is laughable,” said Ellison’s GOP opponent, Doug Wardlow.
You know what else is laughable? The assumption that Democrats have any interest in something other than the raw pursuit of power.
