Kavanaugh is innocent, as many “innocent until proven guilty” supporters expected

I actually went and read through the main parts of the 414 page Senate Committee report.

Ford allegations:

Committee investigators found no verifiable evidence that supported Dr. Ford’s allegations against Justice Kavanaugh. The witnesses that Dr. Ford identified as individuals who could corroborate her allegations failed to do so, and in fact, contradicted her.

Ramirez allegations:

Committee investigators found no verifiable evidence to support Ramirez’s allegations.

Swetnick allegations:

The Committee found no verifiable evidence to support Swetnick’s allegations. Indeed, the evidence appears to support the position that Julie Swetnick and Mr. Avenatti criminally conspired to make materially false statements to the Committee and obstruct the Committee’s investigation. Accordingly, the Committee referred both to the Department of Justice and FBI for investigation and potential violations of 18 U.S.C. § 371, § 1001, and § 1505 on October 25, 2018. In addition, on October 26, 2018, the Committee made a second criminal referral against Michael Avenatti to the Justice Department and FBI for investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 (knowingly providing materially false statements) and 1505 (obstruction of a congressional investigation), based upon the NBC story that evidenced that Mr. Avenatti may have fabricated allegations by a second declarant.

Rhode Island allegation:

The Committee found no verifiable evidence to support the allegations. Indeed, the evidence appears to support the position that [blacked out] provided false information. Accordingly, the Committee referred both to the Department of Justice and FBI for investigation and potential violations of 18 U.S.C. § 1001 (knowingly providing materially false statements), and § 1505 (obstruction of a congressional investigation).

Colorado allegations:

The Committee found no evidence to support the allegations in the anonymous Colorado letter. The alleged victim of the incident—the woman Justice Kavanaugh was dating when he authored parts of the Starr Report—denied the event ever took place. Justice Kavanaugh similarly denied engaging in the alleged conduct. The letter is anonymous, and the Committee has no way to identify the sender for further investigation. The Committee found no verifiable evidence to support the allegations.

California allegations:

The Committee found no credible evidence to support the allegations in the Jane Doe letter. Justice Kavanaugh denied engaging in the alleged conduct. The letter is anonymous, and the Committee has no way to identify the sender for further investigation. Although Judy MunroLeighton emailed several Senate offices to claim responsibility for the letter, she later admitted that she was not the author of it and merely used it as a “ploy” to “get attention” and had never met Justice Kavanaugh.

Basically, Kavanaugh was enraged for good reason. Lots of people were falsely accusing him of terrible things. Not just 1 or 2 or 3 but 6 different allegations have come up that have all proved immaterial. Many in fact were simply made up for attention or ulterior motives.

I don’t doubt that Ford believes it was Kavanaugh who groped raped her, but it’s likely someone who looks like Kavanaugh and/or a false memory.

For the former, in a Senate report there were two interesting entries that are eerily like Ford’s allegations:

(Sept. 24, Sept. 25): [Blacked out] stated that after graduating from high school in Hampton, Virginia in 1982, he made several trips to D.C. that summer. During one of the trips, he attended a house party where he kissed and made out with a woman he met who he believes could have been Dr. Ford. said that based on old photographs of Justice Kavanaugh he has seen on the news, he believes the two of them share a similar appearance.

(Sept. 26): [Blacked out] stated that when he was a 19 year-old college student, he visited D.C. over spring break and kissed a girl he believes was Dr. Ford. He said that the kiss happened in the bedroom of a house which was about a 15-to-20 minute walk from the Van Ness Metro, that Dr. Ford was wearing a swimsuit under her clothing, and that the kissing ended when a friend jumped on them as a joke. said that the woman initiated the kissing and that he did not force himself on her.

In particular, the 2nd one is almost word for word on her accusations of Kavanaugh and Judge.

For the latter, Ben Sharipo notes that in this Newsweek article:

One report from the U.S. National Research Council explains that eyewitnesses are notoriously unreliable: “Unknown to the individual, memories are forgotten, reconstructed, updated, and distorted.” Elizabeth Loftus of the University of Washington points out that memories can easily be distorted by misinformation; in her words, memories are “more easily modified, for instance, when the passage of time allows the original memory to fade.” False memories “are constructed by combining actual memories with the content of suggestions received from others.” In a small-scale study performed by Loftus, fully 25 percent of respondents remembered false events constructed for them, and insisted that those events were real memories.

Whatever the case, Ford was likely not assaulted by Kavanaugh, and the smear campaign was a smear campaign.

Of course, you’ll not hear a peep of this in the mainstream media that Kavanaugh is innocent. I did a search for it and only saw it in Fox News and a couple other small time papers.

    “Recalled memories”, ridiculous.

    I recall finding a dragon in the field next to the housing tract of my childhood home when the houses were still under construction. While I was young I swore it was real. Its amazing what the mind will convince us of when we let it.

  2. fuzziewuzziebear says:

    False allegations are a rash and they are all over. In the linked video, the speaker uses UK feminist numbers to prove that most allegations are false. If you skip to the eight minute mark, you will find it. To boil it all down, an estimate of eighty five thousand rapes results in one tenth of them being reported. Yet forty one thousand five hundred are reported. That leaves thirty three thousand false accusations, by their own numbers.

    Women want the power of Potiphar’s wife and they want to abuse it. It’s not just the women though. It is all the enablers within the criminal justice system, the police, prosecutors, and judges. They need to take responsibility for this too.
    While I am not sure which is worse, it is embarrassing that Democrats have used this as a political tool, and will continue to do so until censured.

    I have known many war veterans in my life. I don’t know a single one who has trouble remembering traumatic events that happened. You regularly see 80 year olds and 90 year olds being interviewed- and they remember crazy details… over half a century later. And then I am supposed to believe that if a penis is whipped out, psychology changes to where nothing is remembered?

    Why so many people filed false allegations on one man after his nomination leads me to suspect a larger orchestration.

  5. Bee says:

    Dr. Elizabeth Loftus has written several books. One here:

  6. gunner451 says:

    Ford never claimed the he raped her, only that she was held down and groped by him so you should change your statement:

    I don’t doubt that Ford believes it was Kavanaugh who raped her,

    To

    I don’t doubt that Ford believes it was Kavanaugh who groped her,

  7. @ gunner451

    Thanks. Fixed.

  8. @Wayne:

    Because we literally found the network that was running the main parts of the operation. However, the grifters showing up is what turned the tide, as once you get 2 obviously fake accusations, it means pretty much all of the rest are necessarily fakes.

    It’s a good metric when they pull the “where there is smoke there is fire” gambit, but it’s also useful for hiding actual malfeasance by the same means.

    Good on DS for going through the document.

  9. Scott says:

    That Loftus book does a great job of consolidating the mountain of clinical and research evidence against the existence of “repressed memory”

    Her stuff was required reading in graduate school (ethics class of all places–to help us if we ever got into forensic cases about it).

    On the matter of trauma. What it (memory/recall) looks like clinically is that if you are doing trauma work, you can sometimes get the patient to articulate more and more details from iteration to iteration during trauma work (I’m talking about imaginal exposure–retelling the story over and over). But this does not mean that the patient “repressed” the memory. It was always there, and they always had access to it. But as their mind applies more and more emotional context to it, that meaning allows them to be more comfortable talking about it.

  10. Scott says:

    That is to say, false memories (memories that incorporate a “filling in the blanks” component) are a real thing, Repressed memories (“I all of the sudden remember being hit by a car 30 years ago. I had completely repressed it”) are not.

    The first type is easy to confirm, because it has happened to all of us. Think of a story that you tell (especially one that has deep emotional/developmental meaning attached to it for you) that your parents and all your siblings swear you are remembering wrong. The even happened, but your internal structure (which depends on the story version being “true”) has modified it to provide a major component of your personal narrative. The story that you believe defines you.

  11. Novaseeker says:

    And then I am supposed to believe that if a penis is whipped out, psychology changes to where nothing is remembered?

    Sure — remember, in all of the alleged incidents there was rather heavy drinking involved, which has a negative impact on the accuracy of memories during the periods when one was heavily inebriated. Besides that, the utter lack of any corroborating testimony spoke volumes — and loudly. The most likely explanation is that something she regretted later happened that evening with some boy at the party, but that it was not BK and that the details, which were almost certainly hazy due to the drinking, became embellished later, and caused her a good deal of trauma much later on.

    “I have known many war veterans in my life. I don’t know a single one who has trouble remembering traumatic events that happened.”

    This shouldn’t be overlooked. Genuine rape victims remember everything right down to the last detail – smells, sounds and sights.

    If there’s an upside, it’s that this whole circus sideshow has served to Red-pill more Western men than just about any other event in recent history.
