    It seems a disturbing trend has now developed where someone who has been assaulted in some manner is now turning that assault into a political issue. I refer specifically to the lady in the elevator with Sen. Flake who confronted him about the sexual assault she suffered in the past. While I feel bad that such a thing happened to her, why is Jeff Flake or any other politician getting drawn into her personal tragedy? What did the pending vote on Judge Kavenaugh have to do with what happened to her? Answer: Nothing!

    Her assault at the hands of another man has nothing to do with anyone else, the only person who has any culpability is the man who assaulted her. I really feel sorry for her, but she should seek some professional medical help to deal with what happened, and not turn to the political establishment in an attempt to help her deal with her pain.

    It has also been reported that the woman works for a leftist "civil rights" organization, funded of course by the evil billionaire George Soros. Gee, I wonder if that had anything to do with the confrontation in the elevator?

    MEET ANA MARIA ARCHILA

    I’d like you to meet Ana Maria Archila. She was the woman with the Columbian accent who confronted Senator Jeff Flake as he was attempting to exit the elevator on September 28. CNN and other media outlets are crediting her for getting Flake to call for a seventh FBI investigation on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. CNN had her on for an interview a few hours after she confronted Flake and lauded her “bravery.”

    CNN apparently had no interest in asking Archila about her background and affiliations. That would seem to be relevant. So, with my family at Disneyland, leaving me behind to take care of the pets, I decided to take a little time to do the research that CNN wasn’t interested in doing.

    Archila is the co-director at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD). CPD is a federation of groups, including groups that were the old chapters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). ACORN disbanded shortly after two conservative activists, James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, secretly made and released videos of interactions with low-level ACORN personnel in several of their offices, portraying the personnel as encouraging criminal behavior.

    CPD has received funding from the Democracy Alliance. As I noted in my book, The Tea Party Challenge, the Democracy Alliance in 2005 agreed to give $28 million to several progressive groups. According to The Nation, “[T]he bulk of the money went to familiar names on the DC circuit, like the Center for American Progress, a think tank run by [John] Podesta, and Media Matters for America, which monitors right-wing media and media bias, headed by former conservative journalist David Brock.”
    The Democracy Alliance Democracy Alliance was formed with major backing from billionaires such as financier George Soros, Colorado software entrepreneur Tim Gill, and Tom Steyer. You may know Steyer from his commercials on CNN and MSNBC, in which he calls for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Kelly Craighead, Democracy Alliance’s managing director, served eight years in the Clinton Administration with the rank of Deputy Assistant advising both President and First Lady Clinton on a range of domestic and international activities and initiatives.

    I checked CPD’s list of partners and recognized one of them, Sunflower Community Action (SCA) here in Kansas. SCA, a Wichita-based group, bused nearly 300 people to Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s home on June 15, 2013 to protest his views on illegal immigration. Fortunately, Kobach and his family, which then included four young daughters, were not home when the mob arrived.

    SCA is part of National People’s Action (NPA), a Chicago-based community organizing network with affiliates in fourteen states. In fact, Emira Palacios, a coordinator with SCA, also serves as NPA’s vice president and secretary. In the past, NPA has engaged in protests similar to the one at Kobach’s home. For example, in March 2004, NPA protested outside the home of Karl Rove, President George W. Bush’s chief political advisor, to show their support for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or the DREAM Act. “If President Bush wants our [re-election] vote, he has to give us the dream,” Palacios said. According to CNN, “Palacios said Rove agreed to meet with group leaders in his garage but then chastised them for protesting in front of his house and scaring his children.”

    According to NPA’s website, NPA was founded in 1972 by Shel Trapp and Gale Cincotta “to develop the ideas, talent, and organizations that will help reclaim our democracy and advance racial and economic justice.” After Trapp died in 2010, an obituary in the Chicago Sun-Times noted that Trapp “appreciated [Saul] Alinsky’s use of the dramatic gesture to afflict the powerful and attract news coverage.”

    The use of the dramatic gesture to attract news coverage. Mission accomplished.

    So, contrary to CNN’s portrayal of Archila as an individual who bravely confronted Flake, it’s clear she is part of an effort financed by George Soros and Tom Steyer to use Alinskyite tactics to intimidate elected officials. They obviously succeeded with Flake, who was duped into accepting the Democrats’ dishonest delaying tactics.

    I was able to find all of this in less than an hour. CNN, MSNBC, and the networks, with their resources, could have found it as well. However, that would not have advanced their anti-Trump/anti-Kavanaugh agenda.

    Since they won’t share this information, I urge you to share it on Facebook and elsewhere. Thank you.

    This ‘lady’ made 168k last year as a paid activist. Flake is a flake, always was, always will be. Tool.

    The entire deal was a set-up. The bony fingers of Soros are behind all this. Soros seems to hate everyone in the world. CNN did not just happen to be there. Everything was planned.

    Several senators have expressed alarm that these weirdo leftists are roaming the halls of their offices at will. That really should stop before one of these weirdo leftists does something even more criminal against the American people and the elected representatives of the American People.

    I think that Trump supported Flake's call for a seventh investigation. It proved Ford a total liar and it proved DiChiFi, or ChiFi, a dealer in lying witnesses. Notice that Feinstein kept calling for more time--to me that was an indication that the Dems lacked the votes to stop the nomination.

    I think that Graham's speech in the committee resonated with the American public, who are sick and tired of these power grabs at any price and they agreed with Graham in that the American people hope that people like liar Blumenthal and ruthless Feinstein never get power.

    I pray that these Democrats never get power as long as they live.

    These activists are not a good reflection of the average Democrat Party member.

    According to a Democratic talking head I recently saw on the tube (don't remember who it was except he shows up on FOX every once in a while, says unkind things about his party - the Dem party.).

    RE:The activists (NOT Antifa, - the LOUD but peaceful and organized folk shouting in the faces of everyone on the hill).
    They represent an elite minority funded by BIG $$$.
    Part Socialist, Marxist, Communist, and yes a splash of Capitalism pushing the DNC agendae.

    Into what will it/they ultimately morph if they ever gain power?

    BUT, what with the poll numbers now favoring both President Trump and Republicans in the midterms, the DNC is probably VERY MUCH concerned.

    My opinion FWIW

    The elevator lady is directly tied to Soros.

    Soros seems to hate the whole human race.

    When the Soros bunch threatened Sen. Collins that they were going to chase her down the rest of her life, that was no idle threat. Soros has enough money to turn his thugs loose on a person for many years.

    What Soros and the Democrats are doing is exactly what Mussolini did in Rome and Italy to grab power--turn gangs loose on people in public.

    I believe Republicans in Congress and administration employees and officials should begin to carry pepper spray. If they are surrounded by belligerent demonstrators at their vehicle like Graham was, a one second burst will clear the crowd pronto.

    Pass a law to make it legal when threatened and make it a felony for a protester to use it under any circumstance.

    I honestly think the nation is in the early stages of a civil war. It is a cold war now, but I truly fear it will go hot in the near future.

    What's worse unlike Civil War I, Civil War II might trigger WWIII (IMO).

    Oh really? The leadership of the Democrat Party does not say one word against what these people do. Did you hear Chuckie Schumer say to tone it down? Ms. Feinstein perhaps? Nope, and neither have I. Where is the average Democrat speaking out about these people and fighting to take their party back? They don't exist, and if they do their numbers are very small at this point.

    The Democrat Party as it used to be is no more.

    If these thugs ever got power they would morph into a Stalinist bunch. Arbitrary arrests, camps for "re-education", the Constitution would be destroyed in a heartbeat. That is why they are hellbent of removing firearms from the people, to make their potential lawlessness easier.

    I realize all of the above, I'm speaking about next door neighbors, church members.
    Yes here in the Peoples Republic of Washington several of our church members are Democrats.
    I am a former Democrat (pre-Roe v. Wade)

    If they don't represent the typical Democrat, then where is your supposed civil war to come from.

    But that strongly implies that they in fact do represent the typical Democrat, which is so sad.

    Eh, take any revolution (apart from our own - 1776 - of course) Infiltrate, divide and conquer.

    The infiltrate part is where the deception takes place.
    Those who infiltrate must learn their part well, so well that only a small few (if any) will ever suspect.

    As an example Its happening in the Church as we speak.

    Jesus warned us - the wheat and the tares (Matthew 13).

    But even the tares can be saved if they wish (just an afterthought).

    Life is cheap to the Democrats. They will do anything for power. Rich Democrats like Soros and those in Hollywood and Silicon Valley hate the human race.

    If it goes hot, it will not go well for the anti gun crowd. I recall a discussion in the past where someone said they were preparing for disaster with massive food storage. Someone asked if they had equal attention to weapons & ammo. Well no, was their answer, they were anti gun. The questioner laughed & said their food prep wouldn’t be lasting long, for them anyway.
