Kavanaugh Book that Had Explosive New Allegation Bombs

A new book about Justice Brett Kavanaugh is bombing after detailing an allegation of a new sexual assault against a woman WHO DOES NOT REMEMBER the assault.

You know, details, details.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The latest book on Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a critical biography from two New York Times reporters that made new sexual assault charges that were immediately undermined, has suffered an epic sales crash, according to publishing insiders.

Expected to sell at least 10,000-12,000 in the first two weeks and propel The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation onto the newspaper’s bestseller hardcover list, it has sold about a third of that in the first two weeks.

A publishing source provided the latest BookScan numbers, which can account for about 80% of sales. That number is 3,120. “If you add in ebooks — they may have sold a total of 4,000. That’s one of the most epic bombs in political publishing over the past decade,” said the source.

By comparison, another Kavanaugh book, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, which details the Democratic war on the Trump nominee, has sold 60,000 books and a total of 100,000 copies since its July 9 debut. It was written by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino and published by Regnery.

As of early Friday afternoon, the book has just 47 reviews and three stars on Amazon, where it is rated 6,568 just two weeks after publication.

Squad member Seeks to Impeach Kavanaugh

Rep. Ayanna Pressley effort isn’t going to succeed. But the Squad and the like will feel good, and it’s a further step in the campaign to intimidate Justice Brett Kavanaugh into doing what the left wants him to do, at least sometimes.

And the campaign to make sure President Trump has difficulty finding the right person to serve on the Court when the next vacancy occurs. I mean, who wants to go through this?

According to The Hill:

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) plans to introduce a resolution on Tuesday that would call for an impeachment inquiry to be opened against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh following a newly reported allegation of sexual misconduct.

“I believe Christine Blasey Ford,” she said in a statement. “I believe Deborah Ramirez. It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors.”

“Sexual predators do not deserve a seat on the nation’s highest court and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process set a dangerous precedent,” she continued. “We must demand justice for survivors and hold Kavanaugh accountable for his actions.”

Under the measure, a committee would be authorized to take affidavits and issue subpoenas in connection with the impeachment inquiry.

The measure also says that “there shall be paid out of the applicable accounts of the House of Representatives such sums as may be necessary to assist” the committee in conducting the inquiry.

Christine Blasey Ford Friend Now Doubts Her Kavanaugh Story

It’s okay. The left will keep smearing him, because they want to get inside his head when it comes time to rule on issues like abortion.

And they’ll probably succeed.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Leland Keyser, a high school friend of Christine Blasey Ford, cast doubt on Ford’s claims of being sexually assaulted by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at a high school party in the 1980s. 

“I don’t have any confidence in the story,” Keyser told New York Timesreporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly in their new book, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Examiner

Last summer, Keyser seemed to say that, although she didn’t remember the event, she still believed Ford. 

“Ms. Keyser does not refute Dr. Ford’s account, and she has already told the press that she believes Dr. Ford’s account,” Keyser’s attorney wrote last year. “However, the simple and unchangeable truth is that she is unable to corroborate it because she has no recollection of the incident in question.”

Of Course the Kavanaugh Protestors Were a Mob

There’s now a debate raging about whether the protestors racing around Capitol Hill and confronting senators during the debate over Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination constituted a mob.

Here’s my definition of a mob. When groups of people are chasing individuals down and threatening them and interfering with their ability to go about their business, it’s a mob.

So that was a mob.

Threats against Republican senators grew sharply during the Kavanaugh debate. Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife were chased our of a restaurant by protestors. Sen. Jeff Flake was physically prevented from using the elevator.

Republicans met behind closed doors last Tuesday to figure out ways to deal with the threats.

According to the Daily Wire:

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and other members of the GOP’s Senate coalition reportedly met behind closed doors Tuesday to discuss how to handle threats to their families, staffs, and offices.

“There’s a lot of unprecedented activity taking place,” Corker told senators at the meeting . . .

While threats against senators have become a routine occurrence in the Trump administration, some members of Congress say the behavior has become shocking and even dangerous over the last several weeks . . .

Here’s an exchange last night in which CNN host Don Lemon got into it with conservative Matt Lewis over what’s a mob and what’s not. While conservatives are mocking Lemon, I have to admit that, while I like Matt Lewis a lot, he was a little rude here. But he was also right.

Conservatives don’t act like a mob. And I’m sorry, but Nazis and white supremacists are not conservatives. They’re Nazis and white supremacists.

Emblematic of the physicial mob was the abandonment by Democrats of the principle that you are innocent until proven guilty. Talk about a mob mentality.

These people who were on Capitol Hill were the equivalent of the Tea Party, which didn’t harass people in this manner. We’re at the point where you’ve gotta think Susan Collins had some of her larger male staffers – or even professional security – with her after she announced she would support Kavanaugh.

These were professional, highly trained agitators who were willing to use physical intimidation to get their way. Mob tactics.

It’s not like they were just some gang of old ladies.

Woman Who Caught Jeff Flake in Elevator Makes a $178K Salary

One of the women who harangued Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake as they refused to let his elevator door close is a top professional agitator whose salary is nearly $178,000, not the random outraged citizen many no doubt assumed her to be.

Ana Maria Archila, a Colombia-born sexual-assault victim, is co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy. Her salary, according to a recent Internal Revenue Service 990 form, included $156,333 in regular pay and a bonus of $21,378, according to a piece in the Wall Street Journal.

Archila’s group receives significatn funding from leftist financier George Soros, according to reports.

In the video below, Archila is the woman with dark hair on the right side of the screen standing directly in the way of the elevator door.

It would appear she earned her salary that day. Flake soon after caved to the left and said his final vote to support the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would be contingent on an FBI investigation of the assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

Republicans relented, but the investigation turned up nothing new and Flake helped vote Kavanaugh onto the Court.
