‘Believe All Women’? Christine Blasey Ford’s Own Father Supported Kavanaugh Appointment

Well, this will make for some awkward conversations around the table at family gatherings.

Remember a year ago when Democrats like Kamala Harris and Feinstein were busily trashing the good name of anyone who dared apply the presumption of innocence to the terribly flimsy accusations that had been made against a sitting judge?

We were all supposedly ‘evil’ and ‘anti-woman’ for failing to believe her story, even though Helen Keller could have seen the inconsistencies in it.

She couldn’t definitively name the place, the date, or even which SUMMER the events she has accused him of were supposed to have happened.

The accusations led to spin-off stories where people Kavanaugh had known had THEIR names and reputations dragged through the mud on the national stage by ‘journalists’ with an ax to grind.

But there was a glaring omission in that ‘letter of support’ circulated by those who wanted to affirm Ford’s accusations. Her own family were not found to be among the co-signers.

A public letter of support for Ford that began “As members of Christine Blasey Ford’s family . . .” wasn’t signed by a single blood relative. Reached for comment by the Washington Post, her father simply said, “I think all of the Blasey family would support her. I think her record stands for itself. Her schooling, her jobs and so on,” before hanging up.

Privately, however, it appears the Blasey family had significant doubts about what Ford was trying to accomplish by coming forward and making unsubstantiated allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. Within days of Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a fascinating encounter took place. Brett Kavanaugh’s father was approached by Ford’s father at the golf club where they are both members.

Ralph Blasey, Ford’s father, went out of his way to offer to Ed Kavanaugh his support of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, according to multiple people familiar with the conversation that took place at Burning Tree Club in Bethesda, Maryland. “I’m glad Brett was confirmed,” Ralph Blasey told Ed Kavanaugh, shaking his hand. Blasey added that the ordeal had been tough for both families.

The encounter immediately caused a stir at the close-knit private golf club as staff and members shared the news. The conversation between the two men echoed a letter that Blasey had previously sent to the elder Kavanaugh. Neither man returned requests for comment about the exchanges.

Blasey never explicitly addressed the credibility of his daughter’s allegations, but he presumably wouldn’t have supported the nomination of a man he believed tried to rape his daughter.

Maybe we could all go back to NOT weaponizing the political process to destroy people who might threaten your side’s political agenda?

And maybe — just maybe — we could all go back to the presumption of innocence that gave real protection to citizens against wild and unfounded accusations.

Whether that actually happens will depend on what we prioritize… the real rights of a citizen or the acquisition of political power by any means necessary.
