Clash Poll: Did Dr. Christine Blasey Ford Perjure Herself?

Written by Wes Walker on September 28, 2018

City records are calling part of yesterday’s testimony into doubt… here’s how.

It’s been a wild ride in the current political circus, with more twists and turns than an M Night Shyamalan story.

The word of the week was ‘credibility’. And no less than Senator ‘lied about going to Nam’ Blumenthal raised that exact issue with Judge Kavanaugh.

The senator asked Kavanaugh if he was familiar with “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus” which is a legal principle that dictates jurors can rule a witness to be false in everything if he says one thing that is not true.

“The core of why we’re here is really, credibility,” Blumenthal said Thursday, before drilling into a variety of things Kavanaugh said throughout the hearing Thursday, pressing him on the veracity of the statements.


Keep that one thought in mind as we review the following testimony.

The incident Kavanaugh is being accused of first came up, we were told, in 2012.

Paul Sperry looked at that context and did a little sleuthing.

Is her claim as non-partisan as she says?

Watch the testimony and judge for yourself:

Here’s another publication that wrote about those permits. It asserted the 2008 date, affirming one aspect of the testimony, without any suggestion that there was any problem with the discrepancy.

A building permit from the city of Palo Alto shows that Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford did, in fact, install a backdoor on her master bedroom — supporting a friend’s public assertion that she feels trapped without an exit route.

Ford’s friend Jim Gensheimer, of Saratoga, told the Wall Street Journal last week that Ford needed more than one exit door in her bedroom to feel safe.

Permits from 2008 show that Ford and her husband renovated their Eichler-style house in south Palo Alto’s Greenmeadow neighborhood to include an exit door in the master bedroom.

It’s only in the context of the tweets, above that the Palo Alto story becomes, to borrow DC speak: “problematic”.

Now remember Blumenthal’s statement about lies and the credibility of witnesses and ask yourself the following question.

Do you accept her testimony as valid, or do you think she’s discredited her own testimony?
