To the editor: After 36 years of careful contemplation and soul-searching, I’ve made a decision: I’ve decided to reveal that I was once subjected to unwanted inappropriate touching by Democratic Sen. Nancy Pelosi. She accosted me in a hotel bar, and convinced me to accompany her to her hotel room, on the premise that she had a lucrative employment opportunity to discuss with me. Once there, she made inappropriate and unwanted sexual advances. Although I tried to tell her she was way out of line, she persisted, and I had to forcibly fend her off. I was appalled and traumatized, as I had no romantic interest whatsoever in this woman, and I promptly exited the room. I do not recall the name of the hotel or the bar, the exact date is eluding me and I have no corroborating witnesses. Nevertheless, it did in fact occur because I said so. I am requesting the FBI investigate the incident, even though they have no jurisdiction in this matter.
How can I even imagine that anyone would believe such a ridiculous, preposterous yarn such as that? Well, why shouldn’t they? The Democrats in Congress, the reporters at the three major networks, along with CNN and MSNBC, and, of course, former “Man Show” host Jimmy Kimmel, (there’s an expert on sexual harassment) have full faith and confidence in the validity of a nearly identical fabrication concocted by Christine Ford against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Thus, my story merits a full investigation as well.
Ok, let’s be clear: No one, not even Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren and other prominent Democrats believe this nonsensical diatribe. They are aware that an investigation into this fictitious allegation will yield no results. This is nothing more than a shameless attempt to derail, or at least delay, Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment until after the November election, in the Democrats’ fervent hope that their party will regain power and thwart the nomination altogether. If this fine man’s longstanding impeccable reputation is destroyed in the process, it’s merely collateral damage. The end justifies the means. If you think this is an exaggeration, recall the words of then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nevada). When questioned by a reporter during an interview after the 2012 presidential election as to how he could blatantly lie about Mitt Romney not paying taxes for 10 years, Reid smiled wryly and replied, “He didn’t win, did he?”
Most reasonable people would question the curious timing of this allegation. Consider the fact that 36 years have elapsed and Ford never saw the need to report this until the 11th hour of the confirmation process. Why didn’t she come forward years ago, or during the Senate confirmation hearings, which were held only a week earlier? And where were the other two co-conspirators, who waited even longer to step into the fray? Finally, Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) had Ford’s allegation in her possession since early July. Why did she not bring it up at the confirmation hearings, which was her duty as a senator? Why did she wait until mid-September? Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows the answer.
Why are the Democrats and media engaged in this almost fanatical attack on this man? What is the source of this indescribable hatred? The answer to that question is perhaps the most disturbing and pathetic aspect of this entirely corrupt process. It is exclusively, unquestioningly, all about preserving the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision, which provides for the essentially unrestricted right to murder the unborn child, right up to the day the child is born, through a barbaric and Nazi-like process known as partial-birth abortion. How sad and frightening it is that one of America’s two main political parties will, without hesitation, destroy a good man simply because he may vote to restrict the killing of the most precious and helpless of God’s gifts to us, that of our children.
Please join me in calling, writing or emailing our senators and congressmen and demanding an end to this disgraceful and despicable sham, and that Judge Kavanaugh be confirmed.
