Mark Judge: Democrats Used ‘Extortion and Direct Threats’ to Pressure Me in Destroying Brett Kavanaugh

Published March 28, 2024

Journalist Mark Judge, the high school friend of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, has publicly claimed Democrats threatened and extorted him into potentially supporting Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of sexual assault.

In an explosive interview with Martha MacCallum for Fox Nation, Judge said Democrat operatives combed through his well-documented history of alcoholism, something he chronicled in the 1997 book Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk, as a means to blackmail him.


“They thought, ‘Okay, if we can get Mark Judge involved in this, we can sink Kavanaugh. But we have to get Mark Judge involved in this,’” Judge told MacCallum.

The strange part, [is that it] felt like I had been believed, but then the response was a proverbial shrug.

Christine Blasey Ford, writing of the aftermath of her Senate Judiciary Committee testimony against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, where she disclosed that he’d sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers, in her new memoir, “One Way Back” (affiliate link). Kavanaugh was later confirmed in a 50-48 vote. Jenna Greene discusses additional details from the book in her Reuters column.

March 25 (Reuters) – “I am terrified,” Christine Blasey Ford told a television audience of 20 million Americanswhen she appeared before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in 2018, alleging that then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers.
In her new memoir “One Way Back,” published by St. Martin’s Press, Ford offers behind-the-scenes details of how she found herself in the spotlight, and how her pro bono legal team helped (and sometimes hindered) her in telling the story.
The approach they hit on, which put a premium on authenticity and accuracy, strikes me as a useful model for counseling others in the hot seat.
Because congressional testimony can go horribly awry. Look no further than what happened to the former presidents of Harvard and Penn, who both resigned after fierce criticism of their testimony at a hearing in late 2023 about antisemitism on campuses.
Ford’s testimony did not prevent Kavanaugh’s ultimate confirmation. Still, she was “widely praised as credible and brave” by partisans on both sides, my Reuters colleagues reported at the time.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
