Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault last year without evidence, received the Rodger Baldwin Courage Award from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California on Sunday.
She appeared at the Beverly Hills event to once again present her sob story, as her failed attempt to impede Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation has made her an icon in the minds of millions of leftists who do not believe in due process and the presumption of innocence.
“When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous. I was simply doing my duty as a citizen. I understood that not everyone would welcome my information, and I was prepared for a variety of outcomes, including being dismissed,” she said.
Blasey Ford continued her mission as a Democratic political advocacy during the speech, where she also spoke in favor of the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

She has become a hero to the empowered women of the feminist Left, who are dedicated to creating anti-constitutional witch hunts in the age of #MeToo.
Activists played Blasey Ford’s testimony outside of an event hosted by the Federalist Society featuring a keynote speech from Kavanaugh just last week:
A vast hall filled with members of the conservative Federalist Society on Thursday night welcomed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a conquering hero, while outside on a large screen protesters played video from Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing of testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.
His appearance marked the first time since joining the bench that Kavanaugh addressed the group that played a key role in his confirmation process. Grinning with pleasure, he delivered an address that was largely a laundry list of people to whom he offered “gratitude” for securing his “new job” — as a justice on the nation’s highest court…
His appearance Thursday did not go off without a hitch. Protesters twice interrupted Kavanaugh’s speech, the shrill sounds of whistles cutting through his words. At one point, there appeared to be a fight for control of the room’s sound between the protesters’ whistles and the crowd’s applause.
In day-to-day life here in the nation’s capital, where Kavanaugh was raised, people express both ardent approval and intense dislike for the justice. The Washington Post reported that Kavanaugh has been met with both insults and applause from other diners at a quiet French restaurant in his suburban Maryland neighborhood.
Even at invitation-only, conservative-friendly events, Kavanaugh meets critics. “You should be ashamed,” yelled a young woman at Kavanaugh at The Ronald Reagan Institute’s celebration of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Kavanaugh had come to the event to listen to his fellow justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, speak about the legacy of O’Connor’s life as the first female Supreme Court justice.
The ACLU, an organization that claims to support the Bill of Rights, has chosen to honor a woman who made a mockery of the 5th Amendment with her unfounded, politically-motivated sexual assault accusations against Kavanaugh. The ACLU serves as a glaring example that no leftist group can be trusted.
He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee
Gardner found his backbone.
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.
This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.
“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.
“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.
One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:
Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.
Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.
Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.
President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.
Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.
Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.
It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
