‘Crazy Aunt Christine’

At family reunions, hands covering our mouths to hide our words, we all whispered quietly about her off to the side and some distance away, so she couldn’t overhear the conversation. We all had one, our very own ‘Crazy Aunt’. While watching the three ring circus that took place on Thursday with the claimed sexual assault victim Christine Blasey Ford I couldn’t help but be reminded of everyone’s ‘crazy aunt’.
As the talking heads on most of the news media outlets weighed in on whether or not Ms. Ford was a credible witness, the real question that came to my mind was wondering whether or not her mama knew she was out by herself.
Though the reality is that she was not at all by herself. Ms. Ford had a couple of lawyers, ten Democrat senators on the Judiciary Committee, most of the news media, and millions of Democrats around the country right by her side cheering her on.
I will certainly concede that Ms. Ford appeared very emotional at times, even tugging at one’s heartstrings. Clearly affecting many of those who might have been viewing, as well as those who are already predisposed for purely political reasons to believe her story.
Her testimony and answers to questions were emotional, confused, halting, and contradictory. A reasonable person watching could be sympathetic towards her while not believing for a second what she was saying. That doesn’t make one a heel, a jerk, or a bad person. It merely means that you value fairness and honesty in the proceedings.
But the reality is that she was either a well-coached and prepared actress of Academy Award stature, or just an individual who experienced a real – or imagined – trauma during her life. A supposed trauma not necessarily perpetrated by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Then again, maybe she’s just that ‘Crazy Aunt Christine’, the hypochondriac relative who constantly asks those around her to look at her warts because she thinks they’re changing color and might be cancer. The aunt who calls the police every time she sees a stranger in the neighborhood because she thinks he’s there to commit a crime. Maybe even break into her house and rape her!
We all nodded and smiled at ‘Crazy Aunt Christine’, humoring her since that was easier than confronting her with the truth. Everyone knew that she wouldn’t believe you anyway. She was convinced that everything she told you was true.
There was one exchange I found rather interesting, and bizarre. It involved her and her husband needing to seek marriage counseling over the installation of a new front door to their home during a remodeling. I am simply stumped at what to say about this tidbit from Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony. Dr. Ford blamed it on the ‘event’ that happened thirty years earlier. Ok, I guess.
On the other hand Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony was direct, crisp, and firm. And his opening statement was fiery, just what the Democrats and Republicans on the Judiciary committee needed to hear. And on top of that it was more than compelling.
Though certainly it had no effect on the Democrats. They’re not concerned about the truth during this process. They’re concerned only about blocking his appointment to the Supreme Court where they fear he will cast a vote that overturns Roe v Wade. For decades now the Democrats have been bought and paid for by the abortion industry.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh more than defended himself during this process. His opening statement alone showed the Democrats for what they are, interested only in political power regardless of the cost to any American citizen’s reputation. No American citizen’s reputation matters to them. From a Supreme Court nominee, to the local janitor at the high school, if one’s political beliefs differ from what Democrats deem as appropriate be prepared for character assassination.
Christine Blasey Ford has my sympathies if she indeed was the victim of what she has claimed. But the facts seem to belie her story, at least with regards to Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
And based on those facts and Judge Kavanaugh’s impeccable record as a judge and as a person, I’m inclined to believe the ‘Crazy Aunt Christine’ who everybody whispers about at family reunions theory. Since I simply don’t want to believe that someone could be so cruel and partisan that she would be willing to besmirch a good man’s name solely for a political agenda.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…
