Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is just one of many Democrats who spoke against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court. Blumenthal pushed for an official FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh and the accusations he faces from Christine Blasey Ford, a woman who says that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980’s when they were both in high school.
Kavanaugh denied that allegations.
Kavanaugh was investigated multiple times as part of background checks, not one incident was reported. Nothing. Clean and clear history of service and treatment of people.
Ford named four witnesses to corroborate her story and all four rejected her accusations against Kavanaugh. One of them is reportedly Ford’s good friend, but Ford brushed her off and suggested she’s going through medical issues. What? That doesn’t mean a person can’t tell the truth. Just because someone has a health issue, that doesn’t mean they’re incapable of answering some questions. It’s not like she was in a coma.
Ford’s story has no true location or date, meaning it’s impossible for Kavanaugh to prove where he was not, when he doesn’t even know where that is.
Ford said she didn’t remember how she got home, but she remembers only having one beer at the gathering where she alleges that Kavanaugh assaulted her.
There are so many holes in Ford’s flimsy story and Democratic Senators like Blumenthal are ignoring the fact and basing their targeted character assassination of Kavanaugh in hopes to push the vote beyond the midterm date. Then, and this is my opinion, I think they will try to stall it even further.
What’s this have to do with Blumenthal, beside him being one of the people pushing against Kavanaugh’s confirmation and using senseless reasons to do so?
Well, when the Democrats act immature and delay delay delay, that gives other people time to look into them.
For starters, it appears as though Senator Richard Blumenthal is guilty of stolen valor.
That’s right. Blumenthal reportedly “misrepresented” his time in the service. He made it seem like he served in Vietnam.
He did not serve in Vietnam.
He made people think he did multiple times.
He still did not serve in Vietnam. No matter what you read, hear, or see, Blumenthal was not serving in Vietnam, but he was stealing valor and acting like he was some war hero soldier.
This is the same guy going after Judge Brett Kavanaugh in a pathetic smear campaign because Democrats are upset that Trump gets to pick someone for the Supreme Court.
That’s a big accusation to throw at a sitting senator.
Where is my proof that Senator Blumenthal was stealing valor?
Well, it is funny that you ask.
Blumenthal’s story is so bad that even the left-wing fact checkers at Snopes reported it.
Here’s what they said:
Not everyone likes Snopes. Do you want another story showing more evidence of Blumenthal stealing valor?
How about an article from the New York Times from May 17, 2010?
That article states:
“But an examination of his remarks at the ceremonies shows that he does not volunteer that his service never took him overseas. And he describes the hostile reaction directed at veterans coming back from Vietnam, intimating that he was among them.
In 2003, he addressed a rally in Bridgeport, where about 100 military families gathered to express support for American troops overseas. “When we returned, we saw nothing like this,” Mr. Blumenthal said. “Let us do better by this generation of men and women.”
At a 2008 ceremony in front of the Veterans War Memorial Building in Shelton, he praised the audience for paying tribute to troops fighting abroad, noting that America had not always done so.
“I served during the Vietnam era,” he said. “I remember the taunts, the insults, sometimes even physical abuse.”
Mr. Blumenthal, 64, is known as a brilliant lawyer who likes to argue cases in court and uses language with power and precision. He is also savvy about the news media and attentive to how he is portrayed in the press.
But the way he speaks about his military service has led to confusion and frequent mischaracterizations of his biography in his home state newspapers. In at least eight newspaper articles published in Connecticut from 2003 to 2009, he is described as having served in Vietnam.
The New Haven Register on July 20, 2006, described him as “a veteran of the Vietnam War,” and on April 6, 2007, said that the attorney general had “served in the Marines in Vietnam.” On May 26, 2009, The Connecticut Post, a Bridgeport newspaper that is the state’s third-largest daily, described Mr. Blumenthal as “a Vietnam veteran.” The Shelton Weekly reported on May 23, 2008, that Mr. Blumenthal “was met with applause when he spoke about his experience as a Marine sergeant in Vietnam.”
And the idea that he served in Vietnam has become such an accepted part of his public biography that when a national outlet, Slate magazine, produced a profile of Mr. Blumenthal in 2000, it said he had “enlisted in the Marines rather than duck the Vietnam draft.”
It does not appear that Mr. Blumenthal ever sought to correct those mistakes.”
We’re supposed to trust a guy like Blumenthal who allowed people to believe he was bigger than life, a servant of the military who risked everything in Vietnam, when he was nothing more than a chump who lied about it?
It’s time to confirm Kavanaugh.
Get this FBI show on the road and return to the voting block.
Blumenthal should remember his own history and lies before pushing his Democratic agenda and ruining someone’s life.
It’s shameful that one human being, a guy like Blumenthal, would have the nerve to allow a fellow politician to be part of a massive Democratic smear campaign.
It’s obvious that Democrats care more about their agenda and not about Ford.
She means nothing to them.
She is a pawn in their game and they’ll abandon her as soon as Kavanaugh is confirmed.
