The plot thickens..

per CNN:

Former classmate of Kavanaugh's denies being at party in sexual assault allegation

(CNN)In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, another former classmate of Brett Kavanaugh's denies attending a party like the one described in the allegation made by Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her three decades ago when they were teenagers.

Patrick J. Smyth attended Georgetown Prep -- an all-boys school in North Bethesda, Maryland -- alongside Kavanaugh. Both men graduated in 1983. Smyth signed a letter this summer, before the allegations against Kavanaugh were made public, testifying that Kavanaugh "is singularly qualified to be an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court," along with dozen other of the school's alumni.
Eric Bruce, who is representing Smyth, authored a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the committee. CNN has obtained a copy of the letter, which includes a quote from Smyth denying seeing any "improper conduct" from Kavanaugh.
"I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as 'PJ' who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post," Smyth says in his statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh."

Frankly, if CNN is reporting this, you've lost...

Maryland's statute of limitations on sex assaults.

https://www.rainn.org/pdf-files-and-other-documents/Public-Policy/Legal-resources/2009-Statutes/09MarylandStatutes.pdf


There is not a statute of limitations on sexual assault in Maryland. If she feels so strongly that he attempted to rape her, she should go to the police and file a report. Let it go to a jury trial.



Edit to add that, as some posters have pointed out, since they were both minors, the SOL is 7 years...

Questions

Why would you take a polygraph in August if you wanted to remain anonymous?

She only decided last week to dox herself.

Curious...

Also, if he is denied because of this claim, are they going to impeach him in his current job? And what is the level of proof needed for that??

And if he is found sufficiently not guilty and the impeachment fails, can he still be a supreme?

Funny funny funny....

I am number four, high school bullying




Dealt with this yesterday...my boy is the skateboard kid...

Got the call that all parents don't want to get...I did not lose my cool...I had to calm my sister down...It's handled unless the punk kid doesn't leave well enough alone, and then he and his parents will deal with ME....My boy is not a fighter, but I was proud..He chose to ignore the bully, but he didn't run away.. He didn't even tell me about it, although I thought something was wrong....and other kids, in another class, heard it and did not ignore it and told the teacher..

In a separate incident on the same day, a kid took off his belt and started wailing on a kid..the other kids laughed and filmed it....That kid got expelled and all the children in the classroom received ISS...

I will be so glad when he graduates...

Devon Windsor....

Devon Windsor Says She Relates To Problems Women Of Color Face Because She’s Blonde

Windsor is one of the models appearing on the new E! series “Model Squad,” and she got a dressing down for comments she made on last Thursday’s episode.

On the latest edition, Shanina Shaik, whose father has roots in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, recounted to her fellow models how people used to tell her she would never do high fashion because of her skin color. She added that black girls were left out of big shows in Milan because the designers didn’t want women of color, according to The Cut.

Unfortunately, Windsor attempted to equate her own struggles as a white model with the unique issues faced by women of color when the subject of diversity in modeling came up.

Spoiler alert: She sounded a teensy bit self-centered.

“I literally fucking went through hell and literally lived in different countries like every other month and didn’t speak that language,” she said. “I didn’t speak Paris, didn’t speak Italian. And I did that for like, two years.”

Sorry for the curse word...she's as classy as she is smart....bless her heart...

Does anyone speak Paris?

I went into this thinking it was satire...unfortunately no...I know that there are many on here who won't care that she doesn't speak Paris cause she's pretty...and she is pretty..

It reminds me of Julie Brown's song, "Cause I"m a blonde."




yes I sound snarky...not jealous of her though...I'm a not natural blonde too...The only thing she has on me is age. I just can't get past the "I don't speak Paris part." PARIS??? Who speaks like this?

Transcript of Tom's Last Calls to Deena

6:27 a.m.( pacific time) First cell phone call from Tom to Deena

Deena: Hello
Tom: Deena
Deena: Tom, are you O.K.?
Tom: No, I’m not. I’m on an airplane that has been hijacked.
Deena: Hijacked?
Tom: Yes, They just knifed a guy.
Deena: A passenger?
Tom: Yes.
Deena: Where are you? Are you in the air?
Tom: Yes, yes, just listen. Our airplane has been hijacked. It’s United Flight 93 from Newark to San Francisco. We are in the air. The hijackers have already knifed a guy, one of them has a gun, they are telling us there is a bomb on board, please call the authorities. He hung up.

6:31 Deena calls 911
6:34 The phone rang in on call waiting, Tom’s second cell phone call.

Deena: Hello
Tom: They’re in the cockpit. The guy they knifed is dead.
Deena: He’s dead?
Tom: Yes. I tried to help him, but I couldn’t get a pulse.
Deena: Tom, they are hijacking planes all up and down the east coast. They are taking them and hitting designated targets. They’ve already hit both towers of the World Trade Center.
Tom: They’re talking about crashing this plane. (a pause) Oh my God. It’s a suicide mission…(he then tells people sitting around him)
Deena: Who are you talking to?
Tom: My seatmate. Do you know which airline is involved?
Deena: No, they don’t know if they’re commercial airlines or not. The newsreporters are speculating cargo planes, private planes and commercial. No one knows.
Tom: How many planes are there?
Deena: They’re not sure, at least three. Maybe more.
Tom: O.K….O.K….Do you know who is involved?
Deena: No.
Tom: We’re turning back toward New York. We’re going back to the World Trade Center. No, wait, we’re turning back the other way. We’re going south.
Deena: What do you see?
Tom: Just a minute, I’m looking. I don’t see anything, we’re over a rural area. It’s just fields. I’ve gotta go.

6:45 a.m. Third cell phone call from Tom to Deena

Tom: Deena
Deena: Tom, you’re O.K. (I thought at this point he had just survived the Pentagon plane crash).
Tom: No, I’m not.
Deena: They just hit the Pentagon.
Tom: (tells people sitting around him “They just hit the Pentagon.”)
Tom: O.K….O.K. What else can you tell me?
Deena: They think five airplanes have been hijacked. One is still on the ground. They believe all of them are commercial planes. I haven’t heard them say which airline, but all of them have originated on the east coast.
Tom: Do you know who is involved?
Deena: No
Tom: What is the probability of their having a bomb on board? I don’t think they have one. I think they’re just telling us that for crowd control.
Deena: A plane can survive a bomb if it’s in the right place.
Tom: Did you call the authorities?
Deena: Yes, they didn’t know anything about your plane.
Tom: They’re talking about crashing this plane into the ground. We have to do something. I’m putting a plan together.
Deena: Who’s helping you?
Tom: Different people. Several people. There’s a group of us. Don’t worry. I’ll call you back.

6:54 a.m. Fourth cell phone call to Tom to Deena

Deena: Tom?
Tom: Hi. Anything new?
Deena: No
Tom: Where are the kids?
Deena: They’re fine. They’re sitting at the table having breakfast. They’re asking to talk to you.
Tom: Tell them I’ll talk to them later.
Deena: I called your parents. They know your plane has been hijacked.
Tom: Oh…you shouldn’t have worried them. How are they doing?
Deena: They’re O.K.. Mary and Martha are with them.
Tom: Good.

(a long quiet pause)

Tom: We’re waiting until we’re over a rural area. We’re going to take back the airplane.
Deena: No! Sit down, be still, be quiet, and don’t draw attention to yourself! (The exact words taught to me by Delta Airlines Flight Attendant Training).
Tom: Deena! If they’re going to crash this plane into the ground, we’re going to have do something!
Deena: What about the authorities?
Tom: We can’t wait for the authorities. I don’t know what they could do anyway.
It’s up to us. I think we can do it.
Deena: What do you want me to do?
Tom: Pray, Deena, just pray.

(after a long pause)

Deena: I love you.
Tom: Don’t worry, we’re going to do something...

Bird's eye view....way cool

Nike products

I’ve witnessed many people burning and or trashing their Nike shoes, clothes, etc.

Instead of that(Nike already has your money), please consider donating them to homeless shelters. There are many, many people that could use them.

My sister manages a day laborer company, and she said the need is great. Many of the homeless walk EVERYWHERE and many don’t have resources to buy shoes.

Not being political or anything. Just think about it. You don’t want to buy anymore Nike products? That’s up to you, but you could really make a difference in a persons life by donating these products.

Thanks and have a great night.
