Money makes the world go round, right? The political world, anyway.
Why are the Democrats clamoring over each other to shout “I believe Ford” the loudest?
There are a few possible answers. The most charitable one is that they generally care for a woman who says she went through a terrible ordeal.
More cynical answers are that she is being used as a weapon in their efforts to thwart a Right-of-Center Supreme Court nominee, one who is unlikely to carry water for Progressive causes du jour and to advance their cause in the midterms.
There’s another explanation. An explanation with some mounting evidence.
The woman who claims she was once used by some drunken teens making obscene advances is being used again.
But this time, it’s for money.
She’s their latest cash cow, and you can bet they’re gonna milk it!
(And they are painting Judge Kavanaugh as ‘evil’? Are there NO mirrors in the Democrat Senate?)
Democrat senators have turned Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, evaluating claims that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh assaulted a then-15-year-old classmate 35 years ago, into a campaign moneymaker, releasing fundraising pleas less than 30 minutes into the start of Thursday’s event.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who is expected to take a starring role in the hearings, began a social media ad blitz Wednesday night, blanketing Facebook with more than 3,600 ads excoriating Senate Republicans over their treatment of Kavanaugh’s accuser. Each ad begs targeted progressives to donate $15 to Harris’s campaign coffers so that she can continue her crusade for women.
Harris followed up on her Facebook ads with an email sent during the first part of the hearings, asking supporters to put their name to a petition protecting “civil rights.”
“Sign my petition during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings” the email read. “I am prepared to do everything in my power to stop this nomination.”
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who became a media darling after suggesting Kavanaugh should be afforded no presumption of innocence on the sexual assault charges, largely because of his commitment to conservative jurisprudence, was the first to take advantage of Thursday’s hearings, releasing an email to supporters less than 30 minutes after opening statements commenced.

Even Booker — who wrote an article about grabbing a woman’s breast far more recently than the events in question during this hearing — and has denounced Kavanaugh as ‘evil’ has been cashing in on this hearing. (This one is dated the same week as his ‘Spartacus’ spectacle.)

Is she just a means to an end? A cash cow for them to milk and send packing if she doesn’t achieve the desired end?
Are popup ‘GoFundMe’ pages jaundicing the objectivity of the process by introducing potential conflicts of interest by the possibility of material gain among potential witnesses? After all, Anita Hill had a movie written about her. And that was before there were such things as ‘GoFundMe pages’.
How’s Dr. Ford’s page doing so far? Shortly before midnight on the night she gave her testimony, it was sitting at:
That’s quite a tidy sum in nine days.
But it’s probably nothing like the haul the Democrats pulled in after tugging on the heartstrings of the lemmings on their mailing list.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.
Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.
That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.
There’s a men’s version…
And a women’s version, too…
Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
