Due Process for Me but not for Thee

Vice President Biden gutted due process for college students accused of sexual assault. While serving under President Obama he helped change Title IX rules so that accused offenders were considered guilty until proven innocent.

But along comes President Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVoss. And on Wednesday she brought colleges back to the Magna Carta era by restoring due process to Title IX.

Biden says that’s “wrong.” And he promises to “put a quick end to it January 2021.”

And its not just an academic thing for him. Here’s what he had to say about the Brett Kavanaugh hearings:

Start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts.”

But no such presumption for Tara Reade.

On Friday, Biden said in a statement that Reade’s claims “aren’t true,” adding that “this never happened.”

Not Just Hair Sniffing for Joe Biden Anymore

It’s not just hair sniffing anymore. Tara Reade, a former Joe Biden senate staffer, has accused Biden of sexual assault. Uh oh! As President Obama’s point man reforming campus “rape culture” Biden helped gut due process rights for those accused of sexual assault.

Biden’s rhetoric has also employed a de facto presumption of guilt. On a 2017 conference call with campus accusers’-rights activists, Biden offered a simple message to those who alleged that they had been sexually assaulted: “I believe you.”

And during Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing Joe had this to say:

For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real

Senator Chuck Schumer was feeling it at an abortion rights rally outside the Supreme Court. So he threatened two justices by name. Here’s what he said:

“I want to tell you, Gorsuch! I want to tell you, Kavanaugh! You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Chief Justice Roberts was having none of it, and he rebuked Schumer:

Threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.”

So Senator Schumer apologized. Kind of:

I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. I never — never — would do such a thing.

Christine Blasey Ford Presents Award

Christine Blasey Ford made a video presentation of the award. She claims to be a victim too. She accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of molesting her at a high school party. But no one corroborated her story. Nor could she remember when or where the alleged assault happened or how she got there or got home.

Judge Kavanaugh was put on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Trump denounces Democrats as an “angry mob.”

But Democrats insist they’re not a mob.

And Hillary says they’ll stop being a mob when they get back in power.
