FBI Report Can’t Corroborate Ford’s Accusation; Senate Votes Saturday
After the Senate Judiciary Committee requested an FBI investigation into the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh which President Trump authorized, the FBI reached out to 10 witnesses and nine of them were interviewed. No one corroborated Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s story about an alleged assault back in 1982.
White House spokesman Raj Shah defended Kavanaugh yesterday morning on CNN.
SHAH: “The president, the White House are firmly behind Brett Kavanaugh. We believe that all the Senate’s questions have been addressed through this supplemental FBI investigation. We cannot live in a world where allegation alone can sully a man’s reputation for life. Judge Kavanaugh has expressed his denial firmly, unequivocally and repeatedly under oath.
“And Dr. Ford has identified three other individuals who would be able to corroborate her account and none have been able to do so. All three have said they either said they have no recollection or don’t think it happened. The White House didn’t micromanage the FBI. The FBI has done what it does. They are trained professionals and we applaud them for doing their jobs in this background investigation. It has been sent to the Senate, no White House editing.”
Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky agreed with Raj Shah’s analysis.
McCONNELL: “What we know for sure is the FBI report did not corroborate any of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. And the second thing we know for sure is that there is no way there was anything we could have done to satisfy the Democrats. They’ve always got a reason why the goal posts need to be moved farther down the field.”
Republican Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa was direct.
GRASSLEY: “Judge Kavanaugh should be confirmed on Saturday.”
And Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, could not contain his frustration with Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, in particular, and his Democratic colleagues on the Committee.
CORNYN: “A vote against Judge Kavanaugh tomorrow will be an endorsement of the mishandling of this confirmation process because of hiding relevant information that could have been examined on a bi-partisan basis in a way that respected Dr. Ford’s request for privacy and gotten to the bottom of this as we have attempted to do now with 20 million people watching on television.
“A vote against Judge Kavanaugh tomorrow will be a vote for abusing the confirmation process and a good person. And it will be a vote for the shameful intimidation tactics that have been employed as part of a smear campaign.”
With the vote on tap for tomorrow, you can urge your two Senators to confirm President Donald Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court through a link in our transcript today at www.TheWorldView.com. Or call 202-224-3121.
South Carolina Church Urges Kavanaugh Confirmation from LED Billboard
On the church’s LED billboard, you can read three rotating messages: “Confirm Kavanaugh Soon”, “Pray for Kavanaugh” and “We Stand with Judge Kavanaugh”, reports The Christian Post.
Pastor Steven Griffith told 7News that he got full support from his congregation to use the church’s digital sign to let the world know that they stand with Kavanaugh.
GRIFFITH: “We just wanted to support him, because we feel like, number one, he’s innocent. We feel like he’s being accused unjustly. I want to quote Rachel Mitchell who is the Sex Crimes Prosecutor who questioned Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford. She would not bring criminal charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. I was really just so upset and bothered with the vicious attack on this nomination.”
Robert Jeffress: Democrats Afraid Kavanaugh “May Chip Away at Roe v. Wade”
And Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, appeared on Fox News and said that he has never seen conservative Christians “as angry as they are right now over this debacle.”
Listen to Pastor Jeffress make his case.
JEFFRESS: “Look, I have never seen Evangelical Christians as angry as they are right now over this debacle. Look, they realize now, conservative Christians, that the Left is willing to do whatever it takes to cram their liberal agenda down the throats of Americans including destroying the foundation of our legal system, the presumption of innocence. Make no mistake about it, the reason the left hates Kavanaugh is not because of his judicial philosophy.
“It’s not because of what he may or may not have done to Dr. Ford. The Democrats don’t care one thing about Dr. Ford. They are afraid that if he is confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, he may chip away at Roe v. Wade and diminish the number of babies being murdered every year in the womb through abortion. Conservative Christians see this.
“They know this is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats, it’s a battle between good and evil, between the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness, and that’s why they’re going to turn out in the 2018 midterms.”
Jesus spoke to the Pharisees again. “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness.” (John 8:12)
After Kavanaugh Hearing, Republicans Fired Up to Vote in November
The New York Post notes that Republicans are now more fired up about the November midterm elections than Democrats.
NPR reported Wednesday: “In July, there was a 10-point gap between the number of Democrats and Republicans saying the November elections were ‘very important.’ Now, that is down to 2 points, a statistical tie.”
And GOP strategist Andrew Surabian said, “Pre-Kavanaugh, Democrats were at a 9.5 motivation level and Republicans were at a 6. Post-Kavanaugh, Democrats are at a 10 and Republicans are at a 9.”
Austin Hotel, Pressured by Planned Parenthood, Refunds Money for Pro-Life Movie
And finally, a filmmaker behind the movie Gosnell, which tells the story of abortionist Kermit Gosnell based in West Philadelphia who in 2013 was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of a patient, has announced that he will use a $1,000 check sent to him by a hotel that canceled a screening to pay for free tickets to his film.
The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Austin, Texas had canceled a screening event, reportedly due to pressure from Planned Parenthood, which was set to have an event at the same time and hotel.
Funded by a $2.3 million crowdfunding campaign, Gosnell is being released to 750 theaters nationwide next week. It also documents the three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of four babies born alive inside his “House of Horrors” abortion mill which went uninspected for 17 years.
Numbers 35:33 says, “Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land.”

After Regret, Former Transgender Transitions Back to Woman
A girl who underwent hormone therapy and a double mastectomy after she became convinced she was really a boy has told her story of why she was wrong, reports The Christian Institute.
Cale Firgren first became uncomfortable in her female body at 12, transitioning in her late teens by taking testosterone and three years later, getting a double mastectomy.
But she became dissatisfied, saying, “The more I thought about it, it wasn’t about wanting to be a boy. I just didn’t like what it meant to be a woman. I hated that we were expected to settle down and have kids. It felt easier to say: ‘I’m not fitting in with girls because I was born in the wrong body.’”
Today, Cale, now 24, has “detransitioned” and is living as a woman. Thankfully, the process has not affected her fertility.
98-Year-Old Justice John Paul Stevens: Thumbs Down on Kavanaugh
Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who is 98, said yesterday that Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who Stevens once lauded in one of his books, does not belong on the Supreme Court, claiming he doesn’t have the temperament for the job, reports the Palm Beach Post.
However, while Stevens is a Republican, he’s known for falling on the liberal side of several judicial rulings.
Trump Administration to Deny Visas to Sodomite Partners of Diplomats
The Trump administration will begin denying visas to the homosexual partners of foreign diplomats who are not “married,” in a move homosexual and transgender activists are decrying as harmful and homophobic, reports LifeSiteNews.
A July 12 diplomatic note from the United States to the United Nations explains that, following State Department policy and the Supreme Court’s enshrinement of same-sex “marriage” in 2015, the U.S. will only grant non-immigrant visas to the “spouses” of foreign diplomats, rather than “unmarried” partners of either sex.
The policy, which effectively reverses a 2009 order by the Obama Administration granting visas to diplomats’ homosexual partners, took effect for new applications and renewals on October 1.
The Innovative Heart Surgery That Saved Jerry Falwell, Jr.’s Life
Liberty University President and prominent evangelical Donald Trump supporter Jerry Falwell Jr. recently underwent an innovative surgery to repair a hole in his heart, reports The Christian Post.
Falwell underwent a new procedure called NobleStitch last month in Fairfax, Virginia during which a microscopic needle is used to sew a hole in the heart back together. The procedure takes about an hour and does not require a permanent device to be implanted in the heart or open-heart surgery.
Falwell explained that he was connected with NobleStitch inventor Dr. Anthony Nobles in May through renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, who now serves as Trump’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
