Burden of Proof

11 Views

The alleged event took place 36 years ago. It was not a Federal Crime and therefore the FBI has rightly refused to investigate the matter further. Additionally it may have taken place in the jurisdiction of the District of Columbia. Even wrongfully assuming the alleged event was the highest felony sexual based crime. It has a statute of limitations of 15 years. So any charges or accusations should have been made at least 18 years ago it not before to be legally valid.

The Left insists that men who are accused of any sexually based crime are guilty until proven innocent. However, our Constitution and laws decree that the burden of proof is on the accuser and prosecution. And that all citizens are innocent until proven, beyond the shadow of a doubt, guilty. The Left’s mindset is an abomination against Liberty and freedom within this Republic.

However we will look at the accusation to see if it has any merit what so ever, even though the accused cannot be charged or tried for the event due to the statute of limitations within the District of Columbia. According to Ms. Ford this is what happened 3 and a half decades ago.

When she was 15 years of age, she was at a high school party. This was a co-ed party with girls and boys attending. There was underage drinking going on and she admits that she had been drinking and was in fact drunk during this party.

Two boys, one being now identified as Supreme Court Nominee Mr. Kavanaugh, were also present. These 2 boys and herself were drunk and ended up alone in a bedroom at the house were the party was being held.

One of the boys covered Ms. Ford’s mouth to prevent her from screaming. The other boy, now identified as Mr. Kavanaugh, was on top of Ms. Ford.

However, since both boys had been heavily drinking they had fallen off the bed onto one another during their struggle with Ms. Ford. At this point Ms. Ford escapes from the two entangled boys.

What happened after that is not yet known. Did Ms. Ford leave the party or did she remain there? Where there any adults present at this party? These and more are questions that need to asked.

What is known is that the incident was never reported to an adult, a teacher, the police, or Ms. Ford’s parents. Had it been there would have been an entire chain of events that simply did not happen. It is believed that Ms. Ford did tell a few close friends about it but it was kept silent after that.

From my own experience, I too was 15 years of age at the same time. Back in 1982 when this event allegedly took place. I cannot remember a single thing in detail of what I did during that year. I can make some guesses of course but the accuracy would be in doubt. Add a drunken party to the mix and the odds go way down at recalling anything with any real accuracy about it.

Given that Ms. Ford admits to being drunk at this teenage party calls her entire accusation into question. Especially 36 years later. Did it happen as she said, did any of it happen at all? Or is it all a fabrication of lies?

Ms. Ford and her fellow Democratic Leftists call this alleged event “attempted rape”. That is very strong language to use on an event that was just “remembered” so recently from so long ago. At best, if was still chargeable, it would be assault.

Now I will admit that a teenage male has a lot of sexual tension, drive, and desires. That is indisputable, but not proof of attempted rape. And being drunk can lower ones inhibitions as well. This can happen with any drunk individual, teenager and adult. But it is still not proof of attempted rape. And no where in Ms. Ford’s telling of this event does it mention that either boy was without clothing or even had partial clothing. This does cast doubt on the attempted rape accusation.

On the accused side of this story is Mr. Kavanaugh. He states simply that the alleged event did not take place. But here, I do have to say that IF it did happen as Ms. Ford states, it is possible that Mr. Kavanaugh’s memory of the event is long gone and may not remember that it happened at all.

Also being drunk and being a minor does not excuse such behavior. It was assault if nothing more serious. But we will never know the true intent, if the event actually did take place. And as I stated at the beginning, this happened too long ago to be a legal issue.

In our political arena and climate this kind of accusation sets a dangerous president. To be able to accuse a member of an opposition party of sexual misconduct from an unprovable vantage point decades in the past in order to prevent that person from seeking and obtaining political office is evil. It destroys liberty and it undermines our Republic. It can ruin lives and careers both public and private. All from an accusation that is unprovable and in some cases maybe completely false.

The burden of proof is on the accuser or prosecution within our Republic. And this includes testimony before a Senate hearing.

Ms. Ford also does not state when and where exactly this party was located either. Casting further doubt on the event. Give this information and we can find where Mr. Kavanaugh was located then.

Ms. Ford has offered no proof and Mr. Kavanaugh denies the event. The 2nd boy is unknown. So there are no other witnesses to bring forth new information. There is also no DNA or other evidence at all. Nothing.

We only have the word of a Democratic Party member and donor. One who has been involved in protests against the current Administration. One who believes that the President is not her president. Ms. Ford’s own actions would indicate that she would be against any nomination made by the current Administration to the High Court, no matter the person’s character, qualifications, or even gender.

Ms. Ford has not protested or brought up accusations against Mr. Kavanaugh in his past appointments to the Federal Court system. He has been before the Senate Judicial Committee before and was confirmed by the Senate. No word of any sexual misconduct. Only now, when he is being nominated to sit on the High Court does she come forward with this accusation.

What Ms. Ford did do was to send a letter to Senator Feinstein, a Democratic Senator on the Judicial Committee. Senator Feinstein is a well known Leftist and her public statements show a strong bias against the male gender. Within Ms. Ford’s letter, she demanded that the FBI investigate the alleged event. Thankfully the FBI has refused this unauthorized demand on their time and funds. It accusation does not fall under FBI jurisdiction. Ms. Ford, if you want a private investigation, hire a private investigator to do it, the FBI is not at your disposal.

Senator Feinstein did exactly what the Democratic Senators accused Senator Grassely of doing on the 1st day of the hearing. Not giving out documents in time for them to be read. Senator Feinstein received Ms. Ford’s letter on July 30th. And sat on it until the 11th hour, only then revealing its existence in an attempt to stall the vote or deny the nomination in committee.

At the time of this writing, Ms. Ford has agreed to testify but not yet agreed to do so by the Monday deadline. She demands protections from the Republican Senators. Unless she is going into a witness relocation program, she isn’t entitled to any extra protections. She is not a witnesses but the accuser. Every citizen has the right to face their accuser.

She has been given a deadline, she either meets such deadline or doesn’t. She is then either subpoenaed and brought before the Senate Judicial Committee or is found in contempt if she does not appear and goes to jail. If she elects not to testify, then the Senate moves forward with their confirmation and the accusation is stricken from the record.

I personally would like her to come and testify. If the alleged event actually took place there are unanswered questions about it that need answers that only she can give. Yes it will be hard. That happens anytime someone in an other’s accuser. And I know there is a negative stigma attached to victims of sexual assault. That is unfortunate, but she needs to be strong.

I have already written about how I don’t think Mr. Kavanaugh should be on the bench at any level in our courts. He is part of the problem of black robed tyrants based on some of his testimony and other statements prior to his hearing. However, he is the best available candidate that can be put on the High Court bench at this time and place in our history.

And if such testimony of Ms. Ford removes all doubt to her accusation, then I will join those in stating Mr. Kavanaugh should not be confirmed. But that burden of proof is on Ms. Ford and Ms. Ford alone.

Protesters

From the news reports the anti-Trump protesters appear to come from several camps:

  1. The Children. Mostly teenagers who should be in school instead of being truant. They don’t have the right to vote yet and thus have no say what so ever in the election. They are being manipulated by their liberal teachers and/or parents into protesting the election results.
  2. The people who are lazy. These are the people who are out of work by choice and sucking on every government teat program available to them in the last 8 years. They probably did vote for Hillary Clinton so they could keep getting all of their expenses paid by those of us who do work.
  3. The uneducated. Those who believe every single lie and rumor posted on social media.
  4. The highly educated liberal Marxists. These people hate the Republic. They wish to see it transformed into a Marxist Utopia. Which is truly a contradiction of terms. They are responsible for all the lies posted on social media and for involving children to fight for them.

Three of these camps have hope for the future. The children and be educated eventually, maybe by life itself. The uneducated of course can likewise be educated so they understand the true nature of the Republic. The lazy, will just have to get back to work. And will feel better once they are providing for themselves and their families again.

The last group, the liberal Marxists. They are the ones that really fear a Trump Presidency. They do not want to see American’s learning the truth of the Republic and how it works. They have worked hard for decades convincing everyone that our country is a Democracy, which it is not. They have worked hard to pull in the fringes of society into the mainstream and make them the norm. The liberal Marxists hate this Republic. They hate Christianity. All because it shines the light of Truth on them and they see how ugly they truly are, and they are horrified by that truth.

So as the protectors and guardians of this great Republic. We need to deal with this protest situation. Those that break laws and cross the line from civil disobedience should feel the full weight and force of the law on them. For the others, they need to be shown love and truth.

The 3rd Party Question

12 Views

The anti-Trump Republicans and Independents are looking for a 3rd Party alternative in the November election. Their goal is to force the election into the hands of the Republican controlled US House of Representatives by preventing any nominee from getting 270 electoral votes. This is a lofty goal, but possible in this election cycle.

Those leading this movement have singled out 3 top contenders for the 3rd Party nomination. Senator Ben Sasse, former Senator Tom Coburn, and former Governor Mitt Romney.

Former Senator Tom Coburn has already stated he is not interested in running as a 3rd Party candidate. This leaves the movement with the other 2 potentials.

It is important to note that Senator Ted Cruz is not in this list. This leads to many questions. Is Ted Cruz going to support Donald Trump as the nominee? Is Ted Cruz going to attempt to change the rules at the convention to win the nomination himself? Or is Ted Cruz going to start his own 3rd Party bid for the presidency? These and other questions remain unanswered for now.

The remaining 2 top picks for the 3rd Party run are very different men, not only from each other but also from the presumptive nominees of the Republican and Democrat parties.

First is the junior Senator Ben Sasse from Nebraska. The very thing that was used to attack both Obama’s presidency and Marco Rubio’s campaign seems not to matter for Senator Sasse (or Cruz for that matter.) Another untested freshman junior senator is hardly what the country needs again at it’s helm.

Of course when it’s “your guy” his faults are overlooked. Even if they are exactly the same reason you opposed another candidate as in the case of Marco Rubio and President Obama.

And the last potential 3rd Party runner up is former Governor Mitt Romney. He was the GOP nominee just 4 years ago and lost to Obama’s reelection bid. So already he doesn’t have a good track record.

Mitt Romney lost in 2012 for 2 reasons. The first strike against him was his connection to “ObamaCare”. It was Governor Mitt Romney that created it’s forerunner “RomneyCare” while he was at the helm of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The other is Mitt Romney is not an evangelical Christian. He is a member of the Mormon Church, seen by many evangelicals as a false teaching and a cult. Thus many evangelicals stayed home in 2012 which caused Mitt Romney to loose the election.

But now the evangelicals who rejected Romney just 4 years ago are welcoming him with open arms as their 3rd Party nominee choice. These 3rd Party pushers are nothing but hypocrites. They are not voting for their moral convictions. They are not voting for the Constitution or the principles of Liberty. No, they are voting to keep their own power, wealth, and influence on American politics and public policy.

They are evil and corrupt. No better than Hillary Clinton or any other wolf in sheep’s clothing. The need to be excised from the political landscape. They are responsible for turning our political process into the cesspool most see it as today.

3rd Parties don’t work in our 2 party system. You can always change which 2 parties are in control by changing how they do business. But that change always has come from within the parties and not from outside of the parties.
