Every election year we see the October surprise sprung. Insane allegations at the last minute without enough time to research.
Because of the hysteria over the Oct. 1 seating the surprised came a bit early.
"Kavanaugh ran a gang rape business."
Now the surprise is that Dems have fallen on their swords.

>without enough time to research
The power of social media has made the time required to research much less.
Claims are made / issued raised
These are then spread much faster than the MSM are capable of.
There is then a Darwinian race to research/refute them.
This is partially driven by the revenue model of YouTube.
Often the full refutation facts are on the internet before the MSM has even got around to publishing the original false claim.

Very good point. The 4chan autists are really good at finding secret connections between people even after "deep state internet scrubs" because those scrubs won't get everything.
PLUS random unpredictable things can happen like a letter arrives in the inbox of someone not part of the conspiracy.
"Beach Friends" was such a strange thing to say 4chan was really interested in it.
Letter arrives from ex-boyfriend from 25 years ago alleging polygraph coaching back then, including a name.
Name, McLean, turns out to be a woman who is in the elementary school yearbooks (forgot to scrub those; they scrubbed the high school ones but not before people snagged copies) as best friend of Blasey, and who currently lives in Rehoboth Beach where Blasey was holed up and got advice from "Beach Friends".
Internet is scrubbed of all photos of McLean. Alas, one photo remains, her doing a wine tasting tour in some tiny hamlet newsletter.
4channers instantly realize she is sitting behind Blasey in the Congressional hearing. As is her lawyer, which we know since he sent a letter denying the polygraph coaching allegations.
She is an ex-FBI agent who have worked for a Clinton connected insider who was a staff member of Chuck "I'll do anything to stop this nomination" Schumer and who is a devoted enemy of Trump.

Her lawyer is a Clinton connected former DOJ director who just happens to be representing her.
Everyone else in this is connected to each other and the Clintons in various ways.
This was after a deep state internet scrub! But they didn't get everything and couldn't stop the boyfriend from 25 years ago from sending the god damn missing piece of the puzzle nor could they stop DOJ director lawyer from resisting the temptation to out himself in a letter.
This stuff all went down within hours sometimes minutes of key pieces of evidence being found.
NSA has multi-billion data centers that have access to everything with algorithms trying to piece these sorts of terror network style connections together.
But real human analysts, especially 4chan autists, beat the NSA system every time.

Scott Adams was live-streaming on periscope recently and was brainstorming the title for his next book.
He commented on how amazing it was that he could do this with the assistance of over 1,200 other people in real time, all helping him via the comments.
