Sometimes Women DO Sit Around Making These Things Up

According to Senator Mazie Hirono during her interview on “MSNBC Live” yesterday, the new standard of justice when it comes to sex crimes in America is that “Women do not sit around making these things up”.  She made this statement regarding the sexual assault accusations of Christine Blasey Ford against Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford’s Story

So here is Christine Blasey Ford’s story in a nutshell.

A woman claims that a man attempted to rape her 36 years ago.  She claimed to have repressed the memory and only recovered it during a 2012 couples’ therapy session with her husband whom she married in 2002.  Brett Kavanaugh’s name was never mentioned in the therapy session notes.

She has offered no physical evidence of the attempted rape.

She does not remember where the house was.

She does not remember what day or month it was in.

She said she received medical treatment but does not remember where or when.

Every person she has put forward as witness denies any knowledge of such an event.

There is No Evidence of a Crime According to American or Biblical Law

Whether this attack happened 36 years ago, or 36 weeks ago there is no evidence according to our legal system that a crime ever took place.  An accusation by the alleged victim of a crime is not evidence. There must be physical evidence, circumstantial evidence or witnesses to a crime to convict someone of a crime.

One of our American founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin, stated this about how our justice system should work:

“That it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer, is a Maxim that has been long and generally approved.”

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, letter to Benjamin Vaughan, March 14, 1785.—The Writings of Benjamin Franklin, ed. Albert H. Smyth, vol. 9, p. 293 (1906)

The concept of “innocent until proven guilty” is not just the bedrock of American justice, but it was also the concept of Biblical justice as well. The Bible required multiple witnesses to establish the guilt or innocence of a person accused of a crime in Israel:

“One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.”

Deuteronomy 19:15 (KJV)

In other words – you can’t accuse someone of a crime, including assault, simply based on your own witness of the event.  Where are the other witnesses, where is the physical evidence?

Yet many in our court of public opinion have already assassinated the character of Brett M. Kavanaugh based on these allegations by Ford.

Sometimes Women DO sit around making these things up

Contrary to the assertions of Senator Mazie Hirono, sometimes women do sit around making these things up for a variety of reasons.   It can be for reasons of pride, fame, spite, revenge or other political motivations. In the Bible we find a famous story of a woman “making these things up”:

“11 One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside. 12 She caught him by his cloak and said, “Come to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house.  13 When she saw that he had left his cloak in her hand and had run out of the house, 14 she called her household servants. “Look,” she said to them, “this Hebrew has been brought to us to make sport of us! He came in here to sleep with me, but I screamed. 15 When he heard me scream for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.”

Genesis 39:11-15 (KJV)

Women making up claims of sexual assault is as old as men committing sexual assault itself.  Both of these sins have occurred throughout history and our legal systems must recognize the very real possibility of both of these things occurring.

A lot of Ford’s defenders will say “Well she talked about him doing this way back in 2012 in a therapy session long before he became a nominee and there is documented proof of her making this claim to a therapist.  Why would she make up the lie before ever knowing who would be President in four years or that he would nominate Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court?”

Well first and foremost there is no documented proof of her making a claim that Brett Kavanaugh attempted to rape her.  She never gave the therapist any names.  Her husband alleges she told him afterwards that it was Brett Kavanaugh but spouses lie for each other so he is not a reliable witness.

So, this leaves us with two other likely possibilities of what actually happened.  Ford could have been sexually assaulted by someone other than Brett Kavanaugh and she may not even remember who it was.  But she chose to put Kavanaugh’s name in as her attacker when she saw him announced as Trump’s nominee because she wanted to stop him from being nominated.

An even worse scenario would be and could be that she made the entire event up in therapy as an excuse to deal with problems in her own marriage and then filled in Brett Kavanaugh’s name as the attacker as an added bonus. And of course, her loving husband supports her in her lies.  This is a very real possibility as well.

But what about the second or third woman?

A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, has claimed that Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself in her face when he was Yale University. So, if we have two women accusing him then both these claims must true right? That is the sad standard for many in our society.  If you can’t take the man down with one flawed accuser, just throw in another for good measure.

This second woman even admitted to not being sure it was Brett Kavanaugh who exposed himself to her until after a democratic lawyer helped coach her and convince her that it was.

Then of course we have the trashy lawyer Michael Avenatti claiming he has yet another woman making claims against Brett Kavanaugh.

Conclusion

Senator Mazie Hirono was partially right in some advice she gave to men the other night when she stated:

“I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”

The only part of her advice that was wrong was when she said “shut up”.  I would simply change this part of her statement and give this advice to all men including Brett Kavanaugh in the face of the rampant misandry going on in American culture today:

“I just want to say to the men in this country: Speak up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”

The Bible gives us as men this admonition:

“Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.”

1 Corinthians 16:13

I was so pleased to see Brett Kavanaugh make the forceful defense he did in his interview with Martha MacCallum from Fox News.  I was pleased to see him speak up and step up to the corrupt political forces that would see him step down.

I pray that God will give the Republican senators the wisdom to see that this is truly a smear campaign against a good man and a good judge and I hope they will have the courage to help him win this nomination.

  1. Brett Kavanaugh showed up in national news stories in 2011 because he was the lone Appeals Court Judge that voted No on ObamaCare. He showed up again in 2012 because he was thought to be on Romney’s short list for the Supreme Court. Very possible for both accusers to begin to Transfer/Overlay him onto their political fears in 2012.

  2. metoo is about power and control. It calls all male behavior toxic. Both men and women sin, but under metoo only men. You can’t show up making an unsubstantiated claim decades later with no proof. That is what metoo is all about.

    I was watching the interview last night and thought, this is the beginning of the end if they are successful in derailing this guy, if he can’t get approved after all of the defense he has and people who stand for him, both women and men, then how does any man? That is the idea though isn’t it, the end of men in power, right? As usual, there is the world’s way and there is God’s way. 1 Tim 2:12.

    Women, if you can’t trust men, you are in a lot worse spot than you think. A Godly woman has no problem operating as she should with men. She trusts the Lord. She has confidence in and obeys her husband. She respects her father. She loves her sons. As to the un-Godly woman, she trusts in herself. She prostitutes herself by thinking her beauty will last forever and is her’s to control and wield for selfishness. In addition to being wrong, this direction will leave a woman old and alone, without the one very thing God says husbands need to do which is love their wives. Better to do right and captivate the heart of a man who will do right by you and love you when you are no longer young.

  3. This is a national spotlight on what plays out in family courts every day. Just make an accusation and the man is considered guilty until he proves what is logical unprovable. Come to think of it, it is played out in churches too.

    Misandry by any other name would not be so sweet to the anti-family anti-male activists.

  4. Jonadab,

    Building more on your point listen to what Senator Coons said on Monday:

    “It is Judge Kavanaugh who is seeking a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, and who I think now bears the burden of disproving these allegations, rather than Dr. Ford and Ms. Ramirez …”

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2018/09/25/sen-coons-kavanaugh-needs-to-prove-his-innocenece-n2522221

    As I have said on here before. I once had a conversation with an attorney at a church I attended about this. I asked him if the courts treated child abuse differently than other crimes. I said something like this. It seems that when it comes to any child abuse(including child molestation) – our judicial system has turned against our core value of justice, that a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. Instead the burden is placed on the person accused of abuse to prove they did not do it. I asked him as a lawyer whether he found that to be true and he said “Yes”. But he actually defended this warped view of justice and said since children could mount a good defense it should be up to the accused adult to prove their innocence.

    How scary that was for me to hear an attorney make such a statement. And the scariest part is that same philosophy spread into all sex crimes over the past couple decades. Now men are considered guilty of assault until they can prove their innocence.

    So what is the answer to this dilemma? It is for men to do what they did in the 2016 election. Come out and overwhelming vote for Republican candidates and repeat what happened in George Bush’s first mid terms where he did a rare thing in American politics – gained seats for the party of the sitting President.

  5. After Anita Hill, corporate America set out to create harassment seminars and sensitivity training. Just being a male was suspect, treating a female as an non-male was forbidden unless the female wanted her privilege. If a woman complained, HR jumped to protect her even if it meant firing the male with nothing more than her word that she felt “uncomfortable”. Believe the women really means men do not get justice, because -you know “equality” and social justice.

  6. An event that may or may not have happened over 30 years ago with zero physical evidence, zero DNA, zero legitimate witness statements, why would anyone even attempt to take that to court? I am going a bit off biblical topic here and more into my own opinion but as a woman I find that to be an embarrassment and I would caution any woman against going forward to a court with such a weak case. It is cases like this that make a mockery of real assault and I view this as a slap in the face to actual abuse victims. I can’t say that I would ever feel comfortable taking an abuse type of case to court BECAUSE of cry wolf cases such as this.

    Regarding a statement made above about how a “Godly woman have no problem operating with men as she should.” This has less to do with this woman not respecting men and more to do with her being a selfish individual. Most likely she is the type of woman that will step on anyone to get her way, this was just the easiest way for her to do it. A lack of trust is generally the direct result of fear of failure, or fear of loss. I feel it is much harder to fix a person’s selfish heart than it is to fix a trust issue. If a person has a trust issue you just need to figure out what they are afraid of and you will most likely be able to remedy it. Lack of trust could come off as selfish but the root is actually fear. This woman doesn’t have “trust issues” or issues respecting men, she’s blatantly selfish. I bet she would respect a male judge or male attorney who helped her with her case.

  7. It is sadly true that we women do sometimes lie to attract attention. Even though I am a woman, I still want to see more women being called out and punished for lying about rape especially because the consequences are so dire for the man involved.
