Left-wing Uglies Will Not Stop Harassing Kavanaugh

Left-wing Uglies Will Not Stop Harassing Kavanaugh

It has been almost five years since Justice Bret Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court after an intense FBI investigation concerning an accusation of sexual assault in his college years. 

At no time in his past — including a past Senate confirmation to the federal courts – were such accusations ever advanced.  There were not even rumors of misconduct.  The FBI found no credible evidence to support the belated claims of Christine Blasey Ford, a left-wing political activist — and Kavanaugh was confirmed.

That should have been the end of the controversy, but those on the left do not take defeats comfortably.  They harbor grudges that manifest themselves from time to time – and Kavanaugh’s hatred has been on simmer since his confirmation.

As a free constitutional society, we respect the right of people to assemble and peacefully protest – with emphasis on peacefully.  But the left’s anger at the Supreme Court in general – and Justice Kavanaugh specifically – has led the most radical faction to exceed proper behavior and constitutional rights.

A recent prosecutorial-style documentary fired up the nutcase contingent on the left.  They gathered at both the Supreme Court and the Kavanaugh home to resurrect the old issues and demand his removal from the Court.

In many ways, the documentary by Doug Liman was intended to stir the passion and promote the public protests.  It was nothing less than a prosecutor’s brief (propaganda) in the court-of-public-opinion – a presentation that would have never prevailed in a court-of-law.

The documentary offered supposedly new evidence – although it fell far short of real evidence.  Just more after-the-fact accusations from folks who have less credibility than Ford.

Although the protests were more of concocted political stunts without a clear achievable goal, the gathering at the Supreme Court was well within the constitutional rights of the assembled.  One does not have to have a worthy or practical cause with an achievable goal in order to protest.

It was the appearance for the aggrieved outside the Kavanaugh home that was beyond decency and constitutional protection.  They were actually breaking the law – although they are laws that are routinely broken by demonstrators.

Chanting outside of the Justice’s home at night was not a protest.  It was harassment.  They were not only disturbing the peace of the Kavanaugh family but of the neighbors.  Falsely shouting that Kavanaugh is a rapist within earshot of his children is a despicable act.  It is a lie.

Protestors at Kavanaugh’s home were not veiled in their desire to harass.  One of the main chants was “no privacy for us, no peace for you” – “privacy” refers to the basis for the original Roe v. Wade decision.  The “no peace for you” concedes their motivation – harassment.

And yes … Kavanaugh is not a rapist.  He has the right to be considered innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.  And he is not even under investigation or indictment for rape or any other crime – and never has been.  If Kavanaugh were not a public figure, he would have every right to sue the accusers for slander.

The accusation against Kavanaugh was subject to two intense FBI investigations – more than such accusations would have been investigated if he was an ordinary citizen.  The FBI investigations did not lead to subsequent criminal investigations because there was no cause to proceed further.  Case closed.

Increasingly, the freedom to protest has evolved into personal harassment.  Public figures have been accosted on the streets … in restaurants … and at their homes.  While protestors may get an inflated sense of self-importance and empowerment, harassment does not reflect well on the protestors or their cause.  That is not within their constitutional rights.  Perhaps it is time for law enforcement to uphold the law.

So, there ‘tis.

    Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath before Congress. That’s a serious crime. While Christine Blasey Ford was a “fraud”, there were also 2 other investigations made where people who knew Kavanaugh had personal knowledge of his wrongdoings, and all of that was shut down by the FBI because Kavanaugh was needed to overturn Roe v. Wade. Our country is controlled by religious extremists whose agenda includes the total control and oppression of females.

    • Theodore

      And I suppose you know this for a fact, even after all the investigations proved your accusations false? What a maroon.

      • frank stetson

        I would say Theodore is once again showing his racist’s stripes with that language, but I expect he’s just a moron.

    • Tom

      So you do acknowledge in your comment that the FBI was (and is) being weaponized and politicized to achieve a political/religious goal! Great! Trump says the same thing! You and Trump have something in common!!!

  2. larry Horist

    Susan Lea …. First of all that female victimization stuff is getting thread bare. Smacks of paranoia. Not sure if you are referring to the phony charge that the nutty Michael Avenatti tried to promote. You also seem unaware that the FBI actual reopened its vetting of f Kavanaugh after a Democrats on the Committee complained. Not sure any Supreme Court nominee was more intensely and deeply vetted by the FBI. There was not there there… period. And if fibbing to Congress under oath was a serious infraction, most witnesses would be in jail. Can understand if you are unhappy about overturning Roe, but that does not entitle you to make up stuff. As a pro-lifer, I will tell you that it is NOT about oppressing women. It is about saving human lives — including little girls.

    • Tom

      Very good points and well said Larry.

    An automatic sprinkler system would get the liberals moving, or they decide to damage your system then they get a vandalism case. He could also add a supplement canister with fertilizer and green dye to ensure full coverage of his lawn.

    • Theodore

      Yes! That would be a great start to ending illegal harassment like this.

    • Tom

      Hey that is an awesome comment. Install a sprinkler system activated by an intelligent security system! Brilliant! I love it!!

  4. Tom

    Larry, first let me express my dismay that I could not comment to your “Hotdog” post. Comments seem to be shut off. I tried twice. Hot dogs are wonderful foods. In NC I can still buy the 8 pack of hot dogs and an 8 pack of buns. I might suggest that those extra dogs can be mixed with pinto beans, jalapenos, brown sugar, catsup, a little spicy mustard, and water in a pot to make an excellent high protein meal. I do not use canned beans because of sulfides. Also, they go great with over easy eggs – you can dip and slurp your way to weenie heaven!

    On Kavanaugh, I agree with you but I must say, looking at that man gives me the creeps for some reason, and I don’t know why. Its like every time I see his face on the TV, I am waiting for his plastic looking face to peel off and the demon to be revealed. I know, you are probably saying Tom needs therapy. LOL I think Nick’s comment about a sprinkler system is great! And I know how to do it all. Gosh that would be fun!!!

    Great post, enjoyable read! Keep up the good work!

    Harassment of federal judges is a federal offense, and these jackwagons need to be arrested and charged with a felony. But that clearly isn’t going to happen with Biden’s DOJ being openly corrupt, enabled by Merrick Garland’s sheepish obeyance to the Biden cabal while Christopher Wray hides in the corner.

  6. Tom McNamara

    Never mind a sprinkler, come out with a well-pressured hose, good volume of water spiked with indelible day-glo yellow dye and hose them all down. Should only have to do it once, but be ready for round two just in case.

  7. frank stetson

    Kavanaugh was confirmed, that’s it. It was totally a political vote after Trump weaponized the FBI who held a limited investigation failing to be anywhere near comprehensive. But that’s it, it is done.

    He was not adjudicated for his sex crimes in a court of law, that’s it. Ford did not follow up, I think she could have, with her own law suit which speaks volumes. It’s over.

    Protestors who break the law should be held to account for trespassing or disturbing the peace. Beyond that, have at the cad.

    From personal experience as a high school student in Kavanaugh country in the 70’s, this shit went on just as described. Rich kids, huge houses, no parents, lot of parties, much drinking and drugging and the arrogance of the rich and mighty. Fun times for a poor kid from the sticks. Did not do it, but saw it and the results.

    Larry though, do you have links or dates or anything on the second Kavanaugh investigation. I know the Trump ordered one, it was an expected sham, limited/restricted/incompetent, but I can’t see the second one at all. Thanks.

    • Tom

      Frank, perhaps Larry is speaking of these two investigations:

      October 4, 2018 at “”

      July 2019 the FBI did a supplemental investigation of the hot line tips and some witnesses sent to the FBI in 2018 as part of the background investigation, but that were ignored by the FBI (they admit this in many articles). Apparently they did investigate some tips and talked to a few witness but I do not think anything substantive became of it. See more at “”

      I could not find anything separate and distinct that stated they did a full second investigation so I think the supplemental investigation is the second investigation or at least is being treated that way, which is probably why they called it a “Supplemental investigation”. Just a guess on my part though.

      Hopefully Larry will clarify.

    “First of all (sic) that female victimization stuff is getting thread bare.” With all due respect, Mr. Horist, shove that notion up a very dark place and then rotate. Anecdote Alert: Just the other day, a friend announced she would die soon from breast cancer and related her terrible story of the same type of assault in the same part of town. Sad to say, I never knew, and it affected her entire freaking life. Top of class, Harvard, never married, she still had a sad bitterness in her mid-60’s that I could not believe for just a simple grope. It was a crime what some bastard did to her life, got away with it, and how society makes all of us enablers. Probably just like Larry, as a child I was indoctrinated that no may not exactly mean no. It was in all the movies — Flynn, Wayne, and more all pushed against NO because they knew, in their minds, that she really wanted it, then she caved and they fell in love. Yeah, right. Grooming? So, shove it old man, you enabling unwoke creep.

    Kavanaugh is probably not a rapist in the classical sense, but pretty sure he is a big-time groper and that’s a crime. Not to mention really wrong, not right, not OK, ever. Like I said, not that unusual for folks of a certain crowd down there.

    And for the record, I never pulled a Kavanaugh but I am guilty as sin of frisky pushback against a no. No attacks, no groping, but did not accept the first no upon occasion once in a blue moon. Then I married her and 35 years later am still apologizing, still making up for, well, for almost everything I do :>)

    But the Kavanaugh case is over, except for the protests which, as long as legal, I hope frustrate this man until the day he retires. At his home, in the restaurants, wherever and whenever it’s legal and peaceful. I think he deserves it.

    Also, it seems clear that Kavanaugh lived an exemplary life so perhaps he has redeemed himself. But all gropers still deserve a little guilt reminder of their past deeds.

    Ford did not pursue further in court and, unless precluded for time or some reason, that says something. Hard to imagine she couldn’t muster the strength after her Congressional testimony, so wonder if she just didn’t have the facts, witnesses, and evidence.
    But the FBI was weaponized by the Trump White House, or at least failed in their duty which was a Trumpian set-up to begin with. The investigations were limited in scope and restricted in action. They NEVER interviewed Ford, how could that be right? They NEVER interviewed Kavanaugh, how could that be right? It was the right all right. Law and Order and they ordered their own law.
    They followed few of the 4,500 tips they got and only followed up on a few later (although I have yet to find that) under Democratic Congressional pressure post the first investigation perhaps as long as two years later (still have not found, Tom’s link was to first investigation). While the FBI only followed a few leads, the White House allowed Senators to see all 4,500 tips, in a scif-like room, they couldn’t even take notes. You have to vote for it before you can take notes…..

    It took only a week to complete the primary investigation. Not because the crime required a week, but because the White House controlled the task and only gave them one week. Thirty-year-old crime, one week to figure it out. Bush gave 72 hours to do Hill in, so there was precedent, although this one is more complex, wit more people, with more time passing.

    Avenati was an ugly portion of this, one should take that out of the equation as a red herring but note that the FBI was not allowed by the White House to interview his client either.

    The FBI stated they were not doing an investigation of Kavanaugh but instead responding to questions from the White House Counsel. Enough said. Technically, according to the FBI, there was NO investigation! But that is the point – this was not an FBI investigation but the FBI responding to the White House on a specific request, to do their bidding.

    They never interviewed Ford. They never interviewed Kavanaugh. They never interviewed any of the 20 corroborators noted by Ford’s lawyers. They never followed up on over 4,500 leads to their tip line. They never interviewed Avenati’s client. Ten people were interviewed, perhaps six are known to the press, the rest hidden. They ONLY answered White House questions.
    That’s how the Law-and-Order Party does an investigation and clears the path for a groper to become a Supreme.

    It’s done, it was not fair IMO, and it certainly was not a comprehensive investigation but instead answering questions as directed by the Trump White House.

    Frank Stetson … your not taking your meds today? I love the “with all due respect” before you go gutter with your childish attack. LOL And as far as your loooong irrational screed, it is so typical of you style. In terms of your unfounded and ignorant references to me, I should sue you for identity theft.

    You claim to have lived among the Kavanaugh types is an absurd observations. It wreaks of class jealousy. Rich folks are immoral. Then you confound readers with your own admissions of sinning against your own standards in the past. Your example of your friend is a play for sympathy on your part. The fact that she is terminally ill is a sad fortune, but has nothing to do with the issue of female victimization. You say she was groped and spent a lifetime in bitterness because of it. I assume that by “grope” you are referring to having been touched in one of the three erogenous zones — butt, boob or crotch (in ascending order of importance) — through her clothing. If that really led to a diminished life of bitterness, I would think there were other issues to be considered, Hell … I have been groped a number of times — by women and men. It is not polite behavior, but they had no enduring negative impact on my life. I know the same is true of many woman. There are serious sex crimes, but to raise a grope to the equivalence of rape does a huge disservice to women who are victims of real rape. I recall a feminist who said that construction workers whistling at a woman is tantamount to a rape. THAT is what I mean by excessive victimization.

    I have had to deal with a number of rape victims in my lifetime, so I have had some direct experience with the subject. How they move on depends on a complex set of factors. But not one of them would have thought too much of a pat on the ass. THEY knew the difference. For them it was a real comparison, not theoretical.

    Your entire opinion on the Kavanaugh case seems to be a political bias based on an agreement that the woman should always be believed. No evidence necessary.

    At one moment, you condemn not accepting a “no” as some sort of serious criminal assault against a woman — and then call your admitted actions merely a “frisky” push backs.

    I get it. You have bought into the extreme feminist view of male genetic toxicity and universal female victimization at every turn. That view may comport with political correctness, but it does represent the general reality. You tend to be an enabler that promotes as sense of victimization where it has not previously been seen or felt. In that context, I have a much higher opinion of women than you do. I see the vast majority of women as strong — not shrinking violets crushed at every situation. I would rather reinforce self-esteem than victimhood — to empower rather than to promote oppression.

    In terms of the rest of your screed, it is just old left-wing propaganda that was expressed at the time of the hearings. Show me the proof of your opinion. Oh.. I forgot, that is not a self-imposed requirement for you.

    Frank … put on your big boy pants. And stop hoping for a sexual assault on me. Were you just kidding or ideating? LOL

    • frank stetson

      I have a screed to match your screed but perhaps just a summary. You have mischaracterized me and told me my opinions are wrong without showing even a single fact. I an happy for you that you like a good grope whether man or woman and entertain them often.

      • larry Horist

        Frank Stetson … zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Your “where.s the facts” mantra is getting very tiresome — especially from a guy who wallows in opinions, accusations, distortions and misrepresentations without facts.. You are a master of projection. Oh ,.. I get it. You are like those folks on MSNBC who think their opinions ARE facts. Okay, carry on.

  10. George

    Seems to. me that these people should NOT be allowed to congregate in front of his home and SHOUT chants. Not only are they disturbing the peace but they are making “life” for the neighbors just awful. Surely an ordinance of some sort should be introduced in local government to do something. Either limiting the amount of people who can congregate at one time and a noise ordinance should be instituted. A legal term for harassment should be defined and the harassers should be arrested and fined and made to pay for extra police protection.This family and ALL the families on this street are having their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness violated. These people have a right to protest but NOT at the expense of infringing on the rights of others.

    • larry Horist

      George … Actually what they are doing is illegal. It is just that the laws giving guidelines to constitutional assembly and protest are routinely ignored. It is illegal to block streets. It is illegal to block access to businesses. It is illegal to pressure or lobby the justices. It is illegal to create a public nuisance. It is illegal to disobey police orders. It is illegal to ignore curfews. If authorities wanted to do so, that could clear the street in front of the Kavanaugh home and allow protestors to demonstrate in an alternative legal location. While I want our constitutional rights to be as expansive as possible — there most be minimal restrictions. Like not yelling fire in a crowded theater.
