For weeks during the Brett Kavanaugh-Supreme Court confirmation, we heard constant “Christine Blasey Ford” and her credible, believable accusation and testimony regarding a rape allegation. It was wall-to-wall coverage in the media and protests all the way to the doors of the Supreme Court; that is until the process was concluded. Now, near nothing but radio silence from “Team Ford” and her accommodating activist mechanism and supportive media.
Now that Brett Kavanaugh is sitting on the Supreme Court, Christine Blasey Ford is no longer making daily headlines. But she’s still making money via GoFundMe, where one of two massively successful fundraising pages is still collecting donations for a no-strings-attached pot that currently contains more than $633,000.
No survivor of assault should have to pay to tell the truth, especially when that truth could protect others from harm or keep an unrepentant abuser out of a position of power. The question of whether Ford should profit from her testimony is an incredibly thorny one.

Even though the media was found complicit in aiding Blasey Ford and another supportive accuser has admitting to lying about being raped, it’s funny that when an investigator going after Donald Trump is accused, it’s time for a federal investigation; warranted or not.
To be consistent, we’ve also must be wary of the amateurish allegation made against Special Counsel Robert Mueller. With that, can you imagine the progressive, #BelieveSurvivors and media outrage had a Republican investigating a Democrat president been accused of rape and initiated an FBI investigation on the accuser? There’d be more protesting in the streets, constant media vilification on that Republican and no doubt, another impressive GoFundMe campaign and nonprofit activism in her name.
The justifications for such generous outpourings continue.
“This has been terrifying, her family has been through a lot,” Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, told MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt. “They are not living at home, it’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending, it’s deplorable.”

There was a time, many years ago, when we heard of “threats” made to certain persons, we’d hear phone recordings broadcast on local television and radio or pictures of letters sent, yet in the age of email and social media, we too often hear about threats but very seldom are provided any examples for public scrutiny. And as far as the disappearance of Blasey Ford, lawyers will raise their heads periodically to justify their cut.
We’re consistently admonished while reminded that false rape accusations are extremely rare, despite what we’ve witnessed since President Trump nominated Kavanaugh and the validity of the accusations publicly issued as a response.
Ford told The Washington Post she was upset when Trump won in 2016, because Kavanaugh was mentioned as a Supreme Court pick. But Kavanaugh wasn’t added to Trump’s list of possibles until November 2017, a full year later.

However, the Kavanaugh accusers in question inconveniently meet the definition of those who attempt to smear an innocent person’s reputation.
These false allegations appear to serve three major functions for the complainants: providing an alibi, seeking revenge, and obtaining sympathy and attention.

Again, the bottom line is when Democrats accuse Republican men of sexual assault, #BelieveSurvivors.
When Democrats are accused, the accuser’s allegation must be questioned and investigated. Hollywood liberals don’t count.
And note how this is no longer a “midterm” issue…?
