Heidi Harris Show Podcast #124: American Academy of Pediatrics supports trans kids?

It’s astounding that the American Academy of Pediatrics is supporting the acceptance of transgenderism in kids, ignoring the stats on the number of kids who commit suicide even AFTER reassignment surgery. Some kids may be confused about which sex they are, but there are many avenues to try before administering sometimes irreversible or life altering hormones and surgery. They should know better.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #122: Kavanaugh explains his anger

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, explained his angry testimony last week when he defended himself against ridiculous, unprovable allegations. I’d call it righteous indignation, and I think it was more than warranted.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #121: Thoughts on the 1 October massacre. We are #VegasStronger

1 October 2017 was a day that Las Vegas and our nation will remember forever. While we may never understand  what motivated Stephen Paddock, we know what motivated US as a city. We were there for each other, and will move on, stronger than ever. We are #VegasStronger.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #120: Ford/Kavanaugh hearing and where it leaves America

After all is said and done, I believe Brett. Dr. Ford was fuzzy on details, which anyone would be after 36 yeas, but Judge Kavanaugh was far more convincing in his denial. He also has a track record of treating women well in his profession, and has had many women who’ve worked for him or gone to school with him defending him. I cannot imagine what it must be like to have to field those accusations when they are completely false.

No one should be believed or disbelieved simply because they’re one party or the other.

Winner: SCOTUS and rulings that follow our constitution.

Loser: America, the #MeToo movement, and partisan politics.

#WhyIDidntReport then, and I sure can’t now

I don’t have a lot of sympathy for Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers. How can that be? After all, aren’t all women supposed to stick together? Aren’t all men potential perpetrators, just looking for an opportunity? Shouldn’t all women be believed automatically? 

I have no sympathy because there’s no way for her to prove it, and no patience for this because I have been there myself. I didn’t go public about it until this week, because, like Dr. Blasey, I can’t prove it, and there’s no point in trying to destroy a man without any actual evidence. 

I remember more specific details about my attack than Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers do. I can tell you his name, where I was, what kind of car we were in, and what I was wearing, which included a coat, turtleneck and pants. Years later I learned my attacker had a pattern of this type of predatory behavior, when other girls from my high school talked to each other about it. Had any of us known at the time, he would have run out of girls to go out with. But he counted on our silence, and the fact that most of us wouldn’t warn others. 

Three quarters of the time women are victimized by people they know. They are co-workers, dates, or friends. Under my circumstances what was I going to do, scream? He didn’t beat me or leave bruises on me. He was simply stronger than I was. It’s a story far too many women can tell, but in my case, even if I had claimed sexual assault that very same night, how could I possibly have proven it? 

He would’ve said, “We were just making out, and she was okay with going further.” And there would’ve been nothing I could have done to refute it. When I was in high school women just didn’t speak out about those kinds of things. And did I mention he was rich, good looking, and popular? I was going to make a claim against a guy a lot of girls were lining up to date? Good luck with that. 

I don’t recall hearing about anyone being raped in my school, and yet now I know that it happened to numerous girls. Nearly 40 years later, the last thing I would do is accuse my attacker of something he can’t defend against and I can’t prove, even if he ran for President. What would be the point? Again, if I couldn’t have proven it that night how can I possibly prove it now?

In the case of Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers, if we believe the first one’s story, even if she had spoken out immediately, or run out of the room screaming, at a drunken teenage party, who would have come to her rescue? Have you been to an unsupervised teenage party? Everyone disappears into bedrooms, and that’s the end of it. No one cares what goes on in other rooms. After all, she wasn’t bruised or beaten, so everybody would’ve laughed it off.

The guy who victimized me and other girls at my high school demonstrated a pattern of attacking women. Perpetrators like Bill Cosby, Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, Darren Sharper, etc., have demonstrated long patterns of bad behavior with women. A young man who gets away with abusing women usually doesn’t stop. Why should he?

There is absolutely nothing in Brett Kavanaugh’s entire career and life that points to a pattern of bad behavior with women. Over sixty five women he went to high school with have defended him. Ex-girlfriends have publicly defended him. No one else, left or right, has claimed he was anything other than respectful. As far as I’m concerned, that alone is compelling proof that their claims are false. 

I’m not sure what Brett Kavanaugh’s first accuser thought was going to happen when she sent the letter to Diane Feinstein. Dr. Blasey’s accusations were their last shot at derailing him; didn’t she think her name would come out? It’s not possible or fair to lob grenades at somebody and remain anonymous, especially when the stakes are this high for Kavanaugh and the nation. 

The additional accusations are sickening, and either they are true, in which case he should not even possess a law license, or they are a complete fabrication, in which case the accusers should go to jai. Those of us on the right view this as nothing more than a political ploy to try to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation and delay any other nominees until after the midterms.

The Senate Judiciary GOP is offering the accuser a chance to testify publicly, which I promise you is far more than Harry Reid would have offered if a Democrat Nominee  were on the line. But now her defenders are asking, “How could she possibly remember all the details? After all she was traumatized!”, and claim that she’s just going to be sliced and diced by the members of the Senate GOP. You wanted to be HEARD? Here’s your chance, sister. 

If the witness isn’t credible after all the accommodations made by the GOP and they cave on this, they will be decimated in November. And who’d want to be the next male nominee anyway? Step right up, fellas. Who’d you know in Middle School…?

I’ve actually seen columns from lefties decrying the due process Kavanaugh is entitled to receive. Let me get this straight – any woman, any time, under any circumstances, should be believed without affording due process to the accused? Yep. Apparently so, in today’s America.

This goes far beyond left or right politics. This is about putting half the population on notice that the other half can take them down at any time with decades-old accusations that cannot be verified or refuted. 

Feminists have hijacked the #MeToo movement and made it nothing more than the latest weapon to bring men down, which also conveniently ignores legitimate victims like me or anyone else on the Right. If Brett Kavanaugh’s career can be derailed by specious claims, all men had better beware. Someone you don’t even remember might be coming for you next.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #119: Kavanaugh second drunken accuser?

This Kavanaugh case has gotten scarier by the day. No man in America will be safe from decades-old allegations destroying his life if these women are allowed to get away with this. The GOP members of the Senate Judiciary have to hold their ground and vote to confirm him. This man by all accounts has led an exemplary life, and is by all accounts, a brilliant jurist. If he’s derailed by these allegations, who wants to be the next nominee?

And another thing: Why, when everyone is drunk, are the MEN the only ones held accountable for their decisions? We hear this when women are attacked at Frat parties. Everyone was wasted, yet HE is the only one held responsible, and HER (drunken) account is to be unquestioned.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #118: Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser and the burden of proof

Suprem Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is terrifying the left, so much so that they are determined to stop his confirmation at any cost. The last thing they want is a judge who will interpret the constitution as our Founders intended, without allowing politics to sway him.

His accuser has provided zero proof of her claims and now seems reluctant to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Why? If you’re convinced you’ve been victimized, speak up! We all know why…

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #117: Government’s role vs. YOUR role in hurricanes

Bottom line, in a natural disaster, government can only do so much. They get the power back on and clear the roads, but they cannot be expected to show up at your house with a town car because you choose to ignore warnings or evacuation orders.

Heidi Harris Show Podcast #116: Ann Coulter interview

Ann Coulter joined me recently when I was in DC! She has a new book out, and is as spunky as ever. She weighed in in Trump, the Brett Kavanaugh Hearings, and much more!
