Published

on

11:28 AM update:

Grassley calls for a 15 minute break. Republican prosecutor Mitchell has asked several poignant questions, including one that led to an admission of an embellishment of the story on the part of Ford.

In Ford’s testimony, she claimed that members of the “social gathering” were laughing and talking downstairs during the alleged ordeal, but then admitted that she could not hear them. When asked how it was possibly that she knew that they were talking and laughing, Ford admitted that she “assumed” that that was the case.

Grassley is giving Judiciary Committee members five minutes each: Five minutes for a Republican member to ask questions, then five minutes for a Democrat member. Republicans are using prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who will be interrupted every five minutes for softball questions from Democrats.

10:53: AM update:

Opening statements are finished, and prosecutor Rachel Mitchell has the floor to ask Ford questions.

10:38 AM update:

Noticeably emotional, Ford is now recounting the details of her alleged sexual encounter with Kavanaugh.

She said that either Kavanaugh or his friend Mark Judge pushed her into a bedroom at a house party, before Kavanaugh, in a drunken state, grinded on her and attempted to remove her one-piece bathing suit.

She has not given any new details that were not provided in her letter to Feinstein.

According to Ford, she wanted a “second front door” when her home was remodeled, which brought up the story about the alleged assault. She does not remember naming Kavanaugh as the assailant, but that her husband does.

10:33 AM update:

Ford is sworn by Grassley. She is now under oath, preparing to give her opening statement.

10:20 AM update:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is making her opening remarks. She welcomed Ford to the hearing, and is now addressing the prevalence of sexual assaults in America, and calling the process for addressing such allegations “wanting.”

“Our institutions have not progressed in how they treat women who come forward,” she said.

10:00 AM update:

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is making opening remarks, during which he blasted Democrats for obstructing the investigation into Ford’s allegations after her confidential letter to Sen Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was leaked to the media. Ford, looking tense, is waiting for Grassley to finish his opening remarks to speak publicly for the first time.


Big League Politics will be bringing live coverage of today’s testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

COWARD: Sen. James Lankford Grovels to Black Constituents for Opposing Electoral Fraud

Lankford is an ethnomasochist.

Published

on

Since last week’s siege on the U.S. Capitol, there has been a tremendous amount of groveling from Republican cowards desperate to save face and avoid media scrutiny, but Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has taken it to a new low.

Lankford issued a letter apologizing to his black constituents for opposing electoral fraud. He is sorry because the areas that committed the most fraud just so happened to be diverse inner-city communities. Multiculturalism means that fraud is ignored, and it is our national strength. This is the credo of the New America.

The Oklahoma senator wrote that his efforts “caused a firestorm of suspicion among many of my friends, particularly in Black communities around the state. I was completely blindsided, but I also found a blind spot.”

“What I did not realize was all of the national conversation about states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, was seen as casting doubt on the validity of votes coming out of predominantly Black communities like Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit,” he wrote.

“After decades of fighting for voting rights, many Black friends in Oklahoma saw this as a direct attack on their right to vote, for their vote to matter, and even a belief that their votes made an election in our country illegitimate,” he added.

Lankford’s pathetic obsequious letter apologizing for fighting the vote steal shows why the Republican Party is dying, and Republican politicians are despised by their own rank-and-file party members. There is little difference between a GOP elected official and a social justice activist these days.

“I can assure you, my intent to give a voice to Oklahomans who had questions was never also an intent to diminish the voice of any Black American. I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you,” he wrote. “I deeply regret my blindness to that perception, and for that I am sorry.”

Big League Politics has reported on how the Capitol riot forced RINOs to show their true colors and publicly express the disdain they have always held for President Trump:

Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”

In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.

“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”

The Republican Party can either become the Trump party moving forward or go extinct. With cowards like Lankford among the ranks, they may actually choose extinction because they’re that weak.
