Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Kavanaugh

I'm going to go out on a limb here and do some speculating...

I get anti-Trump emails on a regular basis from The Washington Post and in an email from them today there was this headline, "Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford moved 3,000 miles to reinvent her life. It wasn't far enough." It seems that she had told her husband, "I cannot live in this country if he's in the Supreme Court".

If this is true, I find it hard to believe that what she is saying is that she cannot live in a country where drunken seventeen year-old boys attempt to grope girls at teenage alcohol parties. I mean good luck finding that utopian feminist paradise in this world! OK so maybe if she submitted herself to the burka and lived in Saudi Arabia where a fifteen year-old girl discovered in that position would be stoned to death or something but you tell me where in the world drunk seventeen-year-old boys don't do outrageous things to fifteen-year-old girls foolish enough to hang out at alcohol parties. And I do mean foolish when I say foolish.

Girls that put themselves in these situations are nothing short of fools.

That said, I'm thinking that it wouldn't be very likely that a rational person would have to go to that much of an extreme to get away from Judge Kavanaugh. Why would any rational person insist on destroying the career and reputation of someone who groped her one time when she was drinking? And why would she need to leave the country if her ploy didn't work?

There has to be something else motivating her, don't you think?

But what?

It's not just the Pussy Hat paranoia about White males. That doesn't explain what she is feeling. She, a White female born in the U.S.A., would have to leave the country if another White male were on the Supreme Court? Not likely!

So what?

It does appear that this Ms. Ford is politically aligned with the Left and one of the primary objections the Left has been making about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh is that he could vote to reverse the Supreme Court decision on a woman's right to have a safe abortion in the U.S.A.

What if, and this is just speculation, but what if this particular woman had at some earlier point in her life gotten pregnant and had an abortion and what if, as many suggest can happen, this woman had guilt feelings about what she had done to her unborn child and what if in an attempt to shift the blame and the guilt off of herself she blamed the Pro-Life Right for the guilt she felt? Then how would she feel about living in a country where abortion was not just shameful but illegal as well?

What might that motivate such a woman to do politically?

Now last time I knew a guy, no matter how virile and threatening he might be, can't get a girl pregnant by groping her. So she's not accusing him of getting her pregnant, not that I can see at least. So if she did somehow get herself knocked up it would have been in another situation with another guy. Maybe that would be a good place to start if she insists on pushing this thing too far.
"Have you ever had an abortion?"
"If so, when?"
"Who was the guy?"
"What were the circumstances?"
Not to mention the obvious questions:
"What were you doing at an alcohol party when you were fifteen years old!"
"How often did you do things like that?"
"Was that enough to stop you and knock some sense into your head or did you keep doing crap like that?"
"How many abortions did you wind up needing to have?"
"Did you ever take personal responsibility for the choices and mistakes you made?"

Of course maybe it's not her herself that she is concerned about. Maybe she never had to face an abortion herself. Maybe she's thinking of all the other young women who wind up in situations like this. But if so, why would she herself have to leave America if Kavanaugh became a Supreme Court judge?

Never again trust the Left unless you subscribe to this notion, "The end justifies the means."
