Brett Kavanaugh and the #MeToo inquisition

One particular aspect that has been repeatedly overlooked—yes, I’m referring to you Huffington Post—throughout the whole judicial fiasco involving the completely unsubstantiated accusations Christine Ford has made against Brett Kavanaugh, is that Ford may well have a pecuniary conflict of interest in Kavanaugh not being elected to the Supreme Court. This is because if Kavanaugh is elected then—as a conservative—it may well have implications for overturning the infamous Roe vs Wade decision which legalised abortion in the U.S.

Why would this matter to Ford? Well, because according to an article by Jim Hoft, “Christine Blasey Ford Published Eight studies about “Abortion Pill” and Works for Company that Produces It”. Actually, it’s even worse than that since John Zmirak, writing for The Stream, has pointed out that, “Ford actually worked as “director of biostatistics for Corcept Therapeutics in Menlo Park,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle. (H/T Tiger Droppings.)” Hence, as Mike Adams writes:

Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, who claims — without any evidence — that Kavanaugh inappropriately touched her at a drunken party while in high school, turns out to have ties to an abortion pill pharmaceutical company called Corcept Therapeutics. This discovery brings to light an obvious conflict of interest in Blasey’s story, revealing that she works for a pharmaceutical company that manufacturers an abortion pill drug, whose profits could be strongly impacted by future Supreme Court decisions on abortion rights.

Corcept Therapeutics (Corcept.com) manufactures and markets an abortion pill drug called mifepristone, and Christine Blasey Ford is a co-author of at least eight published scientific papers produced by the pharmaceutical giant to promote its pills. You can see Blasey’s name listed on several publications at this Corcept.com web page detailing their research papers.

Corcept Therapeutics, Inc., a $166 billion market cap company (stock symbol CORT) reportedly has current annual sales of $216 million. The company offers just one drug, mifepristone, which is widely known as an “abortion pill” or RU-486. 

Now, all of this might be just an incredible coincidence, but as Zmirak argues:

Imagine if an anti-gun SCOTUS appointee were just about to be confirmed. Then some right-wing woman came out with vague, unprovable charges? Then we learned that the accuser had worked for a company that made AR-15s. How much credence would the media give her?

Make no mistake. The Democrats don’t give a toss about protecting women. Otherwise, why would they continue to defend and exonerate Bill Clinton, a man whom Jennifer Hartline notes:

Committed adultery in the Oval Office as President. [What’s more] Clinton also remains credibly accused of rape and sexual assault by multiple women, all while he was a married adult, not an immature teenager.

No, as Hartline goes on to argue:

This is about abortion. It’s about the larger sexual ideology as well, but abortion first and foremost. This is about nothing more than demolishing a candidate for the Supreme Court whom they did not choose, and who poses a serious threat to their golden idol. Abortion is both sacrament and god.

Any honest observer has to be repulsed by the histrionics displayed during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. Screaming women raving like lunatics about one thing: abortion-on-demand. At the thought that they may not be able to extinguish the natural results of their sexual encounters, that the child they help create is a human being they are obligated to protect, the pelvic Left becomes absolutely unhinged. Unhinged is even too inadequate a word. It’s like the behaviour of demons about to be exorcised.

What Hartline is saying is absolutely spot on. ‘They don’t hate Brett Kavanaugh because of anything he may have done over thirty years ago. Any transgression can be forgiven if fervent devotion to abortion is manifest. They hate Kavanaugh because they love abortion and he does not. [And] Hell hath no fury like “women’s rights” scorned.’

This is a huge moment not just for American politics but for Western Civilisation in general. What we are currently witnessing is something between Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and Harper Lee’s, To Kill a Mockingbird where the presumption of innocence has been completely denied. As Miranda Devine observed in The Sunday Telegraph, “The Kavanaugh lynching is the ultimate weaponisation of the #MeToo movement. This is a powerful mutant offshoot of identity politics, a revolutionary moment aimed at overturning the patriarchy. It threatens not just to split societies but the most intimate relationships between men and women laid down over tens of thousands of years.

It defies reason and history by holding that a woman is always the innocent victim and a man always the perpetrator.

Men lie. Women never lie. But we know this is not true.’
