Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer glossed over Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, dismissing the allegations at Biden’s denial alone. Whitmer had previously accepted Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulting her, a standard she declined to apply to Reade.
Tapper, who occasionally deviates from CNN’s strict obedience and promotion of the Democratic Party, pointed out that Reade’s allegation has demonstrably more corroboration than Ford’s did. This doesn’t mean that Reade’s allegation is true, but it does go to show the partisan hypocrisy of the Democratic Party and Whitmer; declining to recognize a sexual assault claim against a member of their party while rushing to judgement on an allegation against a conservative judge.
Watch Tapper’s painful interview with Whitmer here:
Whitmer declined to recognize a “pattern that goes into this,” ignoring the numerous complaints of invasive personal behavior against Biden by several women and girls.
CNN’s Tapper pointed out what appeared to be Whitmer’s blatant double standard- accepting Ford’s allegation as truthful and merely dismissing Reade’s allegation arbitrarily. Several associates of Reade, a former Senate staffer, have come forward and described hearing of her account of events at the time of the alleged incident in 1993.
I believe Dr. Ford

Even leading leftists and progressives have recognized the hardcore hypocrisy of the establishment Democratic Party when it comes to the Biden allegations. Actress Rose McGowan(an early promoter of the #MeToo movement) and journalist Glenn Greenwald have pointed out the cynicism of the Left.
Excellent job here by @jaketapper in seeking an explanation for why Democratic politicians decided to believe Christine Blasey Ford but not Tara Reade. He received nothing other than indignation in return because there’s no cogent answer to provide: https://t.co/FfmRwfygKr

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
