UNREAL: Far-Left ACLU Gives ‘Courage Award’ to Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford

This is the opposite of what a real civil liberties organization would do.

By Shane Trejo

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault last year without evidence, received the Rodger Baldwin Courage Award from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California on Sunday.

She appeared at the Beverly Hills event to once again present her sob story, as her failed attempt to impede Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation has made her an icon in the minds of millions of leftists who do not believe in due process and the presumption of innocence.

“When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous. I was simply doing my duty as a citizen. I understood that not everyone would welcome my information, and I was prepared for a variety of outcomes, including being dismissed,” she said.

Blasey Ford continued her mission as a Democratic political advocacy during the speech, where she also spoke in favor of the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

She has become a hero to the empowered women of the feminist Left, who are dedicated to creating anti-constitutional witch hunts in the age of #MeToo.

Activists played Blasey Ford’s testimony outside of an event hosted by the Federalist Society featuring a keynote speech from Kavanaugh just last week:

A vast hall filled with members of the conservative Federalist Society on Thursday night welcomed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a conquering hero, while outside on a large screen protesters played video from Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing of testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.

His appearance marked the first time since joining the bench that Kavanaugh addressed the group that played a key role in his confirmation process. Grinning with pleasure, he delivered an address that was largely a laundry list of people to whom he offered “gratitude” for securing his “new job”— as a justice on the nation’s highest court…

His appearance Thursday did not go off without a hitch. Protesters twice interrupted Kavanaugh’s speech, the shrill sounds of whistles cutting through his words. At one point, there appeared to be a fight for control of the room’s sound between the protesters’ whistles and the crowd’s applause.

In day-to-day life here in the nation’s capital, where Kavanaugh was raised, people express both ardent approval and intense dislike for the justice. The Washington Post reported that Kavanaugh has been met with both insults and applause from other diners at a quiet French restaurant in his suburban Maryland neighborhood.

Even at invitation-only, conservative-friendly events, Kavanaugh meets critics. “You should be ashamed,” yelled a young woman at Kavanaugh at The Ronald Reagan Institute’s celebration of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Kavanaugh had come to the event to listen to his fellow justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, speak about the legacy of O’Connor’s life as the first female Supreme Court justice.

The ACLU, an organization that claims to support the Bill of Rights, has chosen to honor a woman who made a mockery of the 5th Amendment with her unfounded, politically-motivated sexual assault accusations against Kavanaugh. The ACLU serves as a glaring example that no leftist group can be trusted.

Now that even MLK is a ‘sex criminal’, maybe US can stop toppling statues and ‘canceling’ people?

The long-delayed reckoning for Martin Luther King Jr is a chance for America to step back from immature social justice radicalism, and once again separate people’s personal lives from their public achievements.

Accounts of the civil rights hero’s infidelity and voracious sexual appetite date back to his lifetime, but the latest accusations, presented by his esteemed biographer David Garrow on the basis of FBI surveillance tapes, won’t disappear neatly under the carpet.

They are too graphic, including orgies and boasts about founding the “International Association for the Advancement of Pussy-Eaters.” They are too criminal, cheering a fellow pastor as he allegedly raped a woman in a hotel room. And most importantly, they are the first ones to surface since #MeToo.

‘Time for some statue removals?’ Twitter reacts to MLK sex life claims, rape comments

Screen Shot 2019-05-28 at 10.14.30 AM

Some on the right have called for vengeance, just as for historic figures, some of them dead for centuries like Robert E Lee, who have been punished for failing to adhere to present day liberal views. And celebrities, who have been branded as anything from sex pests to rapists to pedophiles on much thinner evidence.

So, it’s only fair that we cancel Martin Luther King Jr Day, rename all the streets and schools named after him, take down the statues, and rewrite the textbooks. No more biopics.

But what if instead, we break the cycle of cultural violence?

Surely this is the moment when even the most passionate cancel-happy #TimesUp activists can admit that King’s contribution to the civil rights movement, both as a person and a symbol, is such that no amount of private misdeeds will detract from it.

Indians ‘infinitely superior’ to blacks: Gandhi statue removed for racist remarks against Africans

Screen Shot 2019-05-28 at 10.16.02 AM

And perhaps as well as learning not to judge too harshly, Americans will be wary of erecting more idols. After all, we have been here before with Mahatma Gandhi’s naked sleeping with teen relatives, Mother Teresa’s refusal to apply modern medicine that could have saved lives, Nelson Mandela’s role in violent resistance, Aung San Suu Kyi’s rule, and even MLK’s own undeniable plagiarism in academic texts and speeches.

This is an opportunity not only to step back from the Manichean hysteria, but perhaps even a chance to reach across the political divide tearing America apart daily. By treating MLK with humanity and a sense of proportion, the same generosity could then be extended to other “sinners,” even those who do not share the same values.

MLK was flawed, Ronald Reagan was flawed, as were John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger, Malcolm X, and George W. Bush. Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, Brett Kavanaugh and Barack Obama and other recent media punching bags are not personifications of evil, but merely public servants trying to do what they believe is best for the country.

But this reads like a naive fantasy.

This is what will more likely happen: excuses will be made for King – the subconsciously racist lower standards of sexual propriety will be applied to a black man. Or perhaps doubt will be cast on the veracity and provenance of the information; focus shifted to the villainy of the FBI that traced MLK’s every step, but did not protect him or his alleged victims.

At worst, MLK’s reputation will take a battering but retain its overall shape. But most likely of all, the impolitic truths will be double-thought out of existence, both acknowledged and forgotten at the same time. Congress will again keep official full FBI records that should have been long opened – and that could confirm or disprove Garrow’s claims – sealed until 2027 and beyond, prolonging the timer on the bomb.

And the same unyielding standards will continue to be applied from the vanguard of the left to the usual targets on the right. The political imperatives are too strong. Because when the big social confrontations are at stake, the heroes must always be saints, and the enemies devils.

Record number of attacks on gays in France: report

Record number of attacks on gays in France: report

By AFP

Paris (AFP) – Assaults in France on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people hit a new record in 2018, “a dark year” for the LGBT community, French group SOS Homophobie reported Tuesday.

The non-profit association registered 231 physical attacks, up from the previous annual record of 188 anti-LGBT assaults back in 2013 linked to same-sex marriage legislation.

“2018 was a dark year for LGBT people,” said SOS Homophobie co-presidents Véronique Godet and Joël Deumier in the yearly report.

The number of assaults jumped 66 percent over 2017, with a spike towards the end of the year when a case a day was being reported to the group.

SOS Homophobie’s helpline, website and legal services collected 1,905 statements from witnesses of abuse of the gay community, 15 percent more than the previous year.

The breakdown of cases, which could involve multiple categories, showed 62 percent involved rejection, 51 percent insults, 38 percent discrimination and 20 percent harassment. Threats and defamation made up 17 percent each with physical assault on 13 percent.

Some 66 percent of witnesses were men, who were “more inclined to talk about it and turn to SOS Homophobie to denounce what they suffered”.

The association said the 42 percent leap in reporting of violence against lesbians appeared linked to the greater willingness of victims to speak out and the influence of the #MeToo movement.

With 23 percent of reported cases, Internet was the leading place for the expression of LGBT phobia in France.

Facebook and Twitter act like an “echo chamber” of daily cases with the social networks recording more than half of all reported cases, the group said.

MUSLIM SOCIOLOGIST GIVES INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO ON HOW TO PROPERLY BEAT YOUR WIFE

Muslim Sociologist Gives Instructional Video On How to Properly Beat Your Wife

“By nature they like violent husbands”

 | Infowars.com – APRIL 4, 2019

A Muslim sociologist uploaded an instructional video to YouTube on how to properly beat your wife by demonstrating the different techniques on a young boy.

The clip shows Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj Al-Ansari showing how to beat your wife in an Islamically permissible fashion.

According to Al-Ansari, a man must sometimes beat his wife “out of love” so that “life can move on.”

Although emphasizing that the beating should be light and painless, Al-Ansari said it was necessary so the wife could feel her husband’s “masculinity and strength” as well as her own “femininity”.

While demonstrating the procedure by grabbing, shaking and slapping a boy who appeared to be his son, Al-Ansari said, “I told you not to leave the house! How many times do I have to tell you?”

Justifying the act, Al-Ansari said, “Some wives like domineering and authoritative husbands, by nature they like violent and powerful husbands.”

Although the original video appears to have been deleted, the YouTube channel that hosted it is still active.

Presumably, YouTube is fine with demonstrations of wife beating performed on children, but Alex Jones had to be completely terminated because ‘reasons’.

Meanwhile, Muslim country Brunei just passed a new law that allows gay people to be stoned to death. Progressives across the west took to the streets to denounce such vile homophobia.

Oh no, wait, they’re still whining about Mike Pence’s gay conversion therapy.

New Biden Accuser Comes Forward To Allege Inappropriate Touching At Fundraiser

By

A woman is accusing former Vice President Joe Biden of touching her inappropriately at a 2009 fundraiser in Greenwich, Connecticut.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head. He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth,” Amy Lappos told the Hartford Courant after first posting the allegation on a Connecticut women’s political Facebook group.

This marks the second accusation against Biden in recent days, following Lucy Flores’ claim that Biden kissed the back of her head and sniffed her hair backstage at a political rally in Nevada with Eva Longoria.

Biden agreed to “listen respectfully” to Flores.

“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention,” Biden said.

Biden is under fire for working with his daughter-in-law Kathleen’s DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, which covered up sexual misconduct in the DC Superior Court bathroom.

Big League Politics reported: 

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law Kathleen Biden operates a group called the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, which provides court-appointed legal counsel to children in divorce cases. Kathleen Biden is listed as a co-chair of the group in some materials and as director of strategic partnerships on the group’s website. Kathleen Biden’s lifelong friend founded the group, and Kathleen Biden has been involved with the group since its inception.

Kathleen Biden was married to Biden’s son Hunter Biden until 2017, and was married to him at the time of this incident. Joe Biden raises money for the group.

A lawyer for The DC Volunteer Lawyers Project was caught propositioning a male teenager in the bathroom of DC Superior Court, and the founder of the group covered it up before acknowledging wrongdoing and quietly terminating the man when forced to by a Washington newspaper editor who never ran the story.

Big League Politics has exclusively obtained court documents and emails showing both the incident and the cover-up. A witness speaks on the record with Big League Politics: her six-year old daughter was being represented by the man who committed the act in the courthouse bathroom.

Multiple eyewitnesses including the boy’s mother notified the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project. The group’s officials expressed that “they didn’t care” about it, according to the eyewitness account.

Time went by. After the local opinion editor for the Washington Examiner asked the group about it, a top official with the group stated that they were aware of the incident and they were dismissing the man for “inappropriate” conduct. The Washington Examiner never went to print on the story, but we have the never-before-seen emails.

The DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, the Biden Foundation, and the alleged perpetrator have all been sought for comment, and have had ample time to respond. The perpetrator now lives in Ohio, where he has been stripped of his law license for a separate incident.

The witness says she has faced retaliation for knowing that “this group had a bunch of perverts working in it.”

Biden delivered his famous 2013 “rape” speech, in which he said that women fear getting “raped again by the system” and referenced the movie “Deliverance,” at a fundraiser for the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, which has also hosted presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand.

Here is Vice President Biden speaking alongside his daughter Kathleen at a DC Volunteer Lawyers Project event in 2015:

Here is the witness statement

“There is a group called the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, which Kathleen Biden runs. They are supposedly volunteer attorneys but they hang out all over the courthouses.

They were appointed in my case — if you have a child in a custody battle, sometimes they appoint a “legal guardian,” which is really just somebody who milks you for all the money you have. It’s a big court scam and they do it for the elderly as well, so they can seize people’s property and money.

In June 2011, my ex-husband wanted to take homeschooling away from me, so we were having a hearing at DC Superior Court and James Marion Broadstone was one of the appointees for my child in the divorce. These people from the Volunteer Lawyers Project were just unbelievable.

My friend Victoria’s teenage son Jefferson was going to testify because he was homeschooled. While we were waiting outside of the court, James Marion Broadstone kept talking to Jefferson, who I think was 19 years old at the time, sort of flirting with him. The next thing we know, he followed Jefferson into the men’s room.

Broadstone said Jefferson was very good-looking and he could help him make good money from his looks, and he liked the “cut of his jib.”

He invited him to a party at his house in Annapolis and then uninvited him after he was fired. I think he was discussing being a prostitute.

Jefferson came out and told his mother Victoria what had happened. Then he went into the court to testify.

My friend Victoria was very upset. Jefferson was very upset. And we reported it to the company, the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, who are not volunteers. They are hiding millions of dollars in their IRS 990 forms and pretending to be volunteers.

We told Jenny Brody, who kept coming in and out of the case, and then Olivia C. Baker who was the other GAL on the case, and she wasn’t even a practicing attorney. They just didn’t care, they’re a sleazy group.

Here is a list of people who were notified of the incident:

Jenny Brody, founder of the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project and 2015 “Washingtonian of the Year”

Olivia C. Baker

Judge Jeanette Clark

Victoria Rose and Jefferson Rose

Dr. Harry Wachs and his wife Ruth

My former lawyer who is a real scumbag”

Witness statement ends

Here is the party invite that James Marion Broadstone gave to the teenage witness:

Here are the emails between the Washington Examiner and the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project

Several weeks later, a reporter for the Washington Examiner asked the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project about the boy’s experience. The DC Lawyers Project acknowledged wrongdoing on the part of the perpetrator.

Here is the definitive email, from Jenny Ann Brody on June 17, 2011 to Washington Examiner local opinion editor Barbara Hollingsworth, who never ran a story on the matter:

Dear Ms. Hollingsworth,

“I’m writing to follow up on our conversation yesterday morning concerning James Broadstone, an attorney serving as a pro bono (volunteer) Guardian Ad Litem for a child who is the subject of a contested custody case in DC Superior Court.

I have spoken with Mr. Broadstone as well as with another attorney who is co-Guardian Ad Litem and was with Mr. Broadstone in court on the day in question. (It is the policy of the DCVLP to always assign two attorneys to every case.) It is my understanding that Mr. Broadstone had several conversations with Victoria Rose, a witness for, and employee of, the mother in the case, and with Ms. Rose’s son, a recent high school graduate. My understanding is that Mr. Broadstone, Ms. Rose, and her son had discussions of a social nature, including about Ms. Rose’s son’s college plans. At the end of the hearing, Mr. Broadstone invited both Ms. Rose and her son to a social event he is planning.

It is the view of the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project (DCVLP) that, while Mr. Broadstone’s conduct was not a violation of any ethical rule, he nonetheless showed poor judgment as a GAL for proposing social contacts with a witness. For this reason, we have accepted Mr. Broadstone’s offer to resign as Guardian Ad Litem in this case, and will be filing appropriate documents to inform the court and parties of this fact. In addition, I note that Mr. Broadstone is not currently serving, and will not serve, as a volunteer on any other DCVLP cases. We are disappointed in this lapse in judgment, since, in the past, Mr. Broadstone has achieved excellent results on behalf of domestic violence survivors in other cases he has handled with our organization.

If you have any further questions about the incident concerning Mr. Broadstone, or about the DCVLP, please do not hesitate to contact me. You also may wish to review our website (www.dcvlp.org) to get a larger picture of our organization and its mission, which is to provide free legal services to low income clients in family law cases. The overwhelming majority of parties in family law cases in DC Superior Court lack legal representation, even though these cases affect important family relationships. The DCVLP recruits and trains volunteer attorneys to represent these clients. Our largest area of practice is representing domestic violence survivors in cases to obtain protection orders , and, in some cases, to obtain custody of their children. Our volunteers also serve as Guardians Ad Litem for children who are the subject of disputed custody cases. Our volunteer attorneys receive no payment for their services. Their work has helped to ensure the safety and stability of over three hundred women and children. In some cases, our volunteers have protected women and children who were in danger of serious injury or even death. We hold our attorneys to the highest standards of excellence, and I believe that the results of our work show that they achieve this standard.

One final point. We are very puzzled that Ms. Rose chose to contact a newspaper reporter to express her concerns in this case, rather than contacting the DCVLP directly. I note that Ms. Rose is employed by a party in this case. I also note that it is a violation of the Rules of Professional Responsibility for an attorney to make, or cause anyone else to make, statements to the media which may influence an ongoing case.

Thank you for bring this situation to our attention. Again, if you have any further questions, please call me, 301 379 1788.

Yours truly,

Jenny Brody,

A tortious negligence complaint was filed in Superior Court of the District of Columbia and a judge crossed four courts to dismiss it.

Here is Joe Biden’s famous rape speech, which has been mostly scrubbed from the Internet, which he delivered at a May 2013 fundraiser for the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project.

“You’ll often hear men say, why don’t they just leave? I ask them, how many of them have seen the movie ‘Deliverance’? And every man will raise his hand. And I’ll say, what’s one scene you remember in ‘Deliverance’? And every man here knows exactly the scene I’m thinking of. After those guys tied that one guy to the tree and raped him, men raped him in the film, why didn’t that guy go to the sheriff?”

“Why wouldn’t you go the sheriff? The reason why is, they’re ashamed, embarrassed. Why do you think who get raped, so many don’t report it? They don’t want to get raped again by the system.”

Thanks to Democrats, Virginia Lt. Governor’s Sexual Assault Accusers Won’t Get Public Hearing

By Tom Pappert

Fairfax’s accusers will not receive a public hearing if Democrats have their way.

Democrat delegates in the Virginia House of Commons are refusing to allow the women accusing Lt. Governor Fairfax of sexual assault the opportunity to publicly go on record with their stories.

In a statement posted to the Virginia House GOP website, House Speaker Kirk Cox revealed that Republicans are behind the effort to give Fairfax’s alleged victims the opportunity to make their accusations in a public forum, and are being barred by Democrats from giving the women the opportunity.

Cox revealed that Republican legislators “have communicated with attorneys representing Dr. Vanessa Tyson and Ms. Meredith Watson,” and learned that “Tyson and Ms. Watson are prepared to share their accounts at a legislative hearing, only if there is bipartisan cooperation to conduct the hearing.”

He elaborated that “Unfortunately, despite the compelling accounts we have heard from Dr. Tyson and Ms. Watson on television in recent days, Delegate Filler-Corn has made clear that she will not agree to a bipartisan General Assembly hearing of any nature,” with the Democrat legislator adding that the party does not believe it is the correct forum for such a hearing.

Accusers Meredith Watson and Dr. Vanessa Tyson have both expressed willingness to meet with Virginia authorities  and legislators to make their accusations publicly. Watson went on record in an op-ed published in February condemning Democrats for refusing to allow her to make her case publicly, even as her personal life was parsed apart by investigators and the media to determine the quality of her character.

Big League Politics reported:

Meredith Watson, who alleges that Fairfax raped her in 2000 while they were both college students, wrote an opinion article in The Washington Post decrying the media and politicians’ short memory, and saying she is willing to testify publicly.

In her article, she said that she has refused calls from politicians and media outlets to make the alleged rape a partisan issue or media talking point, and as such has been ignored.

Watson also stated that reporters and researchers have dug into every facet of her personal life, going as far as researching her elementary school records in an attempt to find evidence she may be untrustworthy or lying about the alleged rape.

Fairfax, who blamed the alleged victims for causing harm to him in the media circus following their accusations, has thus far felt no meaningful consequences for his alleged actions, even after many of his staffers resigned following the accusations.

He was, however, unceremoniously fired from his position as chairman of the Democratic Lieutenant Governors association.

Fairfax remains an elected official in Virginia, with local Democrats circling the wagons to protect him.
