    Well, I don't know for sure if Kavanaugh is innocent, I don't know for sure if event, described by Dr. Ford actually happened (with K. or with someone else). But I do know that I can't trust Ford. She comes off as manipulative. This forced cutienes at the beggining. This quick and frequient eye-scan of the room. This cracking voice for so long, yet no tears or attempts to fight it.

    I can't even believe all those hateful, mean and monstruous comments. No, she cannot remember everything because people dissociate while going through a traumatic experience and no, we don't see tears and that's totally normal. She is trying to overregulate her underragulated emotions inside. She is terrified both of what is painful and emerging in her and of the situation she's in. Those shocking comments are disturbing to another level! They show nothing but profound lack of empathy and compassion, ignorence and antisocial behaviors. I really hope those who wrote these comments go through something as traumatic so they can have a realistic idea of what it really is like to experience something so deeply devastating. It makes me deeply sad, hopeless and ashamed of the human race.

    Ladies and gentlemen, do you know why China and Japan are among the 3 largest economic countries in the world? Simply because Chinese and Japanese study very hard in school, work very hard in the work place and most importantly, they respect their parents, communicate with them and learn many facts that happened even decades ago. Did you know the following event took place about 30 years ago in the U.S.? In 1991, President George H. W. Bush (Republican) nominated Judge Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court Justice. The initial confirmation hearing was completed and his confirmation seemed assured. Then, all of a sudden, Professor Anita Hill came forward and said in the nationally televised hearing that Judge Thomas had sexually harassed her many times in various ways for a long time. FBI completed comprehensive investigation in 3 days using their nationwide network. No corroboration was found. However, it was found Professor Hill`s accusation was crafted and designed by the Democrats and anti-Bush lawyers. It was also found anti-Judge Thomas protesters were paid and trained by the Democrats. This is the strategy Democrats have been using to take power. Now, 27 years, after that event, the Democrats did it again with no success. God is always watching to sort good from bad. The Democrats always believe they can fool, play and make use of American people. Most Americans have common sense. They do not automatically believe the accuser with no corroboration. They do not automatically believe the accuser simply because the accuser is a woman. Let`s pray for the democrats so God will ameliorate their minds. God bless America.

    From what I understand, this accusation NEVER could have been proven, specifically because no one can even corroborate the existence of such a gathering. It was ALWAYS going to be a matter of he said, she said.
    So if it never could have been proven as true or false... why was it handled in this way? Why did they put this woman who never consented to going public on display like a circus act? Why did they subject her story to scrutiny? Why did they subject this man to public humiliation?
    If this never could have been proven and Dr. Ford never agreed to go public, is this not the weaponization of sexual assault allegations by those who stand to benefit politically? Were these 2 humans not used as pawns in a political chess game? Since this allegation can never be proven, for these 2 human beings, there are no winners or losers.
    Do people really not see the danger in weaponizing these kind of allegations? Do you not see the damage that this does to victims of sexual assault? The court of public opinion treats people as guilty until proven innocent and that attitude is leaving so much destruction in it’s wake that affects ALL OF US.

    wow she passed a lie detector test and it said she was telling the truth and they put Bill Cosby in jail for that ugly thing "Cousin It" that went to his house after he paid a 3.4 million dollars Ladies If a man tries to rape you keep you a 9 mm and just close all discussions then you won't have to worry about going before FBI investigation just blow the mother f***** away when you get a chance👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏😂😂😂😂😂😂 and they deemed Bill Cosby as the worst thing that ever was and they go ahead on and vote for this thing and let him have free rain over everybody and they accused the soccer player of rape I guess if you wait 10 or 15 or 20 years to tell your story you better get it on out of your mouth because its not going to do you any good so if he tries to take what you got let that 9 mm answer the question😨 stand-your-ground ladies.

    The thing that really makes me mad is the fact of how it all went down like a giant circus. The allegations should have been handled seriously and in PRIVATE. The media should have never been given the opportunity to make any of this public. The democrats should have shared this with the committee and it should have been investigated privately by the FBI and nothing should have been reported unless there was something of substance to report. This has become a joke. There should be an investigation to find the leakers and make an example that this type of behavior is unacceptable in our government. Instead the allegations were leaked to the media and a frenzy was stirred up purely for political reasons. Let the committee and the FBI do their jobs and then report on the findings. The media in America is a absolute joke!!!

    These comments are disgusting. I hope NONE of you have daughters. Dr Ford seemed sincere and credible, and Kavanaugh seemed dodgey, untruthful, and unhinged. It says a lot about the state of our country when a trauma victim is crucified in the court of public opinion, and the perp is fast-tracked onto the Supreme Court.

      Laura Finnan sexually assaulted me 12 years ago. I may have no evidence and no corroborative witnesses; hell, I don't even remember for sure when it happened, or where it happened, but I SAID it happened, therefore it DID, so Laura is guilty. I demand an investigation.

      Iambic Pentameter Yes but there’s a difference, if you are applying to a lifetime job position and you are suppose to be bi-partisan and listen to all sides of a situation but then burst into a crazy shouting match you wouldn’t and shouldn’t get the job. PERIOD! This is the biggest job interview in the world and he failed on all levels. It makes no difference if the rape story sticks. He lied about drinking ages, he then asked insane questions back to the panel of which he didn’t answer questions when directly asked and further more he blames the Clintons for something when they are not even reliving to the situation. He’s using his own “truth” not an opinion when stating his own “facts” all that leads to a huge mess when he’s confirmed. And of course he will be confirmed, because that’s how this insane world works. No one wants the truth to be known these days. It’s all scare tactics and party hand holding. It’s a disgrace and the United States as a country is suffering.. at the point of dying now because of it. People are not paying a attention. It’s truly sad.

    ‘The laughter’ and ‘two friends having a good time with one another’. I still haven’t heard anything that might be rated R or even remotely close to rated PG-13. I’m afraid Ford cannot seem to go for the jugular. I think it might be because her story is what we call in English, a lie.

    Guilty till proven innocent even then he's still guilty... "What I find most unexcusable is the rush to judgement" said finestine. Wow i can't believe she had the nerve to say that. Because as soon as she heard about this she instantly rushed to judgement with out any evidence or any testimony or anything she believe ford without question simply because she said he did it that is one huge rush to judgement.. this hole thing is a joke.. I'm someone who disagrees with most of the conservative ideals and the liberals and progressives too I fall directly in the middle of this political war I hate both sides equally that being said I see the garbage the left is using here to discredit a conservative about to be placed in a powerful position and the only reason for it is cuz Trump nominated him and that is stupid if you look close enough yeah sure Trump is loud and says stupid things but he is trying to do good things for the country but no one left or right will let him. Because their all stupid and nieve and can't see past their own bullshit leftwing, rightwing nonsense they believe so strongly in their political side that they don't care what happens to us regular people who work hard everyday for what little we have they only care if they win or lose. It's disheartening to watch this fight from the sidelines I have no faith in our country I don't think we can ever come back from the hell hole where in right now. mainly caused by the left. when our leaders are only motivated by money,power,greed, and hatred we the people do not stand a chance
