Re: Grassley Scraps Kavanuagh Hearing

Fri Oct 05, 2018 2:13 am

Who coached this woman to talk like a little girl for eight straight hours? All the YouTube videos of her lectures where she actually talks like an adult were removed.

How could Jeff Flake not know the woman who cornered him in the elevator was not a professional? ( paid for by none other than George Soros). “Look at me when I talk to you and tell me that what happened to me didn’t matter!”

Her timeline changed from late teens and late 1980s to early teens and early 1980s after meeting with Democrats. They needed the dates to match up with when Kavanaugh and her were in the same town.

All it takes is one, and of course one might consider it a foregone conclusion, so why bother. Some might even call it a Whitewash. Very common in DC theses days and in years gone by.


Well, like they always say, you have vote on it before you know what’s in it.


A trite reply. I take it we are now referring once again times a thousand Nancy Pelosi's comment on the Affordable Care Act? If I am wrong, please correct me, if not, once again, a trite reply.

I wonder what the accused molester was doing at the White House ? Studying law? :banghead: :banghead: Now that I think on it, he sure had a experienced teacher close by, the Master Molester himself.

It has more to do with confidentiality. Only one copy, no cell phones allowed in, no note taking allowed. With only one copy allowed for viewing nobody can remove an extra copy without anyone knowing and leak it.

Pretty standard when handling classified* information. I think this is more about protecting a couple of the witnesses who were interviewed in addition to those we already know about.

*I know this isn't classified information, but it seems they are handling it with a very high level of sensitivity. Warranted given the history of leaking in DC imo


I love how the politicians complained about this, yet only a few showed up to actually read it.


The White House told the FBI what to investigate. Is it any wonder no one read it? If you read my link, the FBI did not even question witnesses or either Ford or Kavanaugh as directed by the White House. How is this any good?

The FBI report was thorough, and simple. No proof of any of the outlandish claims by Ford, Ramirez or any other liberal leftist operative trying to take down Kavanaugh. All of the harpies were and are liars.

Democrats are shameless liars and they would have more respect if they would simply state “I want to take down Kavanaugh in the most vicious way possible because I hate Trump and I want revenge for Merrick Garland”. Quit the sanctimonious bullshit about rape, assault, temperament or his views.

At the end of the day, Kavanaugh May yet lose as I simply don’t trust Collins, Murkowski or Flake.
But your Pyrrhic victory will come with a cost.
Payback will be a bitch and never again will a unwise Latina or Ruthless Badder be confirmed. Ever.
They will be handled in the EXACT hyper partisan, vicious, and scorned earth process that the horrible democrap party have behaved. And your black sadistic wife beater Islamist Keith Ellison will be cashiered. Count on it.

However, if he somehow does get on the court, congratulations!!! Because you fools will have transformed a mild mannered Bushie into a man who will make the late Scalia look like Ginsburg.

Finally, the Republicans also thank you and your despicable ilk for waking up with sleeping tiger of the US voter who will keep the House red and actually increase the numbers Of the Republican senate.

No investigation has taken place. Witness where refused to talk to. The constrains on the investigation was so tight, it was basically "don´t talk to anyone, just clear his name" and the FBI apparently complied.

Yeah let’s just interview every charlatan who has “heard a rumor about Kavanaugh stealing a French fry in 3rd grade”.

You guys are pathetic. No direct corroborating evidence and you try to keep your bullshit crusade.

You guys are pathetic. Not one, NOT ONE direct evidence of any wrongdoing. Not one evidence of anything. Liars. Hearing a third hand hearsay from a disgruntled leftist who went to school with him doesn’t count. Liars. Quit trying to move the goalposts. Shouldn’t you guys move on to temperament?

Oh well Sunday or Monday, God willing, you can call him Justice Kavanaugh. And I hope he gives it nice and hard to you Democrat mongrels.

And oh, your sweet little dreams of taking over the senate has just been flushed down the toilet mouths of Booker, Harris, Hirono, and Feinstein et al.

Enjoy more subservience to Trump you Democrat stooges.

he lied under oath a gazillion times during two confirmation hearings. For Clinton one lie was enough for impeachment. But who is expecting standards from Rape supporters, the only thing you are consistent about: All women claiming sexual assault are liars. Makes one wonder how many Trumpistas are hoping that their victims won´t be heard once they come forward.

Trump yesterday, Trump today, Trump forever.

Since her YouTube videos were removed, you will have to ask one of her thousands of students over the years, or watch this YouTube video where a body language expert analyzes her.

“Seemingly organic powerful protests. But in both instances, the women involved came from a nonprofit called Center for Popular Democracy that has received funding from liberal billionaire George Soros, records show.

Ana Maria Archila, who confronted Flake is the group’s co-executive director.

Tracey Corder, who according to reports, confronted McConnell, is the group’s racial justice campaign director.

Corder also confronted another Republican senator, Bob Corker of Tennessee at the airport Monday.”

“But the problem for Ford is not that she doesn’t remember everything: It is that everything she remembers changes at her convenience.

First, Ford’s testimony that the assault occurred in the summer of 1982, when just 15, conflicted with both her therapist’s notes and the text message Ford sent to the Washington Post. According to reporter Emma Brown, Ford claimed she had been assaulted in the mid-1980s; and the therapist’s notes stated Ford had been the victim of an attempted rape in her late teens. But by that time, Kavanaugh was attending Yale, so Ford’s recasting of the attack to the summer of 1982 is suspect.”

If you are looking in the constitution for it, you are looking in the wrong place. It's a matter of integrity that a justice appointed by a Republican does not even support this candidate.

Huge.

The FBI report reveals that Ford's friend, Leland Kaiser, was pressured by D operatives to revise her statement about not knowing Kavanaugh or attending any party with him.
The SJC has been supplied with all text messages sent by the operative to Kaiser.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/friend-of- ... 1538715152

The way Democrats handled this entire thing was disgraceful to the bone. Back in 2016 the general consensus was that when Trump won, Democrats would be frustrated, but if Hillary won, Republicans would be angry. Well, turns out it was just the other way around. The Democrats said it would threaten democracy not to accept the results of an election, but it looks like after they lost, they threw this sentiment overboard. Their lust for power has corrupted their minds.

From The Hill article:

"She told the FBI that following her initial statement, Monica McLean, a retired FBI agent and friend of Ford’s, reached out and urged Keyser to clarify what she had said, according to the Journal."

Nothing about pressure from Democrats anywhere in the article. *sad trumpet*

Not to derail the thread but i always ask about what the evidence is in any situation. I try not to jump to conclusions, but I'm human so I'm sure it happens. The opposite could be applied to the left in these cases as well by the way.

Anyways, looks like Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed at this point.

Just more "blame the victim" from the right. If she had not been drunk, if he had not been walking, if she had not worn that skirt, if he had not been sitting in a park......

Blame the victim....

Anyways, looks like Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed at this point.


Welcome to 1840. But, the Republic is not dead until the over emotional beer lover is confirmed and sworn in. The vote, BTW, to send his confirmation to the full Senate was 51-49. Hardly a landslide nor time for celebration from the right.

I guess I won't go home and pop open the champagne then... :sarcastic:

51-49 is about the best Republicans can expect in this environment anyways. Minority Leader Schumer is doing a pretty good job of keeping everyone in line on just about every issue really. I'm a little anxious to see how this plays out in the midterms if i'm being completely honest. I don't think McCaskill has a fighting chance in MO at this point. But my links to Missouri (via family) is a bit of an echo chamber on that so I guess that could be a bit of a false impression. Still excited either way, going to be a fun month :hyper:

Welcome to 1840. But, the Republic is not dead until the over emotional beer lover is confirmed and sworn in. The vote, BTW, to send his confirmation to the full Senate was 51-49. Hardly a landslide nor time for celebration from the right.


I guess I won't go home and pop open the champagne then... :sarcastic:

51-49 is about the best Republicans can expect in this environment anyways. Minority Leader Schumer is doing a pretty good job of keeping everyone in line on just about every issue really. I'm a little anxious to see how this plays out in the midterms if i'm being completely honest. I don't think McCaskill has a fighting chance in MO at this point. But my links to Missouri (via family) is a bit of an echo chamber on that so I guess that could be a bit of a false impression. Still excited either way, going to be a fun month :hyper:


I heard everyone in MO is depressed these days. That could, er, depress turnout.

The amazing thing for me is that the Americans discuss if he did or did not assault Ford, but imho that is much of less of a question than the total inability for the job he showed during his hearing.

No empathy for the possible victim, no respect, bad tempered, clearly partisan and nearly conspiracy theorist crazy. Such a person should not take such an important position.

Collins is on CSPAN right now to announce her decision.

Something she noted, that I didn't realize, and may make me reconsider my support for Kavanaugh. He upheld Obamacare in full prior to it being appealed and going to the supreme court where Roberts noted Kavanaugh's decision helped him influence his decision on upholding the law.

edit: based on her comments so for she's going to vote yes. But she could pull a comey and lay out the case and then say "despite all this, i'm going to vote no" doubt it though.

What happens if a nominee dies before getting on board SCOTUS?

Nothing. It gets withdrawn.

Going to ignore any potential underlying thoughts to that.

Senator Collins nailed it! Finally, the latest Democrat/media circus comes to an end.

Good job Democrats exposing yourselves even further and taking a neutral judge and converting him into a conservative one!

Anyone else see that Susan Collins speech on the Senate floor? She took her time to lay out her case step by step. She used Kavanuagh's writings and help from legal experts to analyze his position on various subjects. She also talked about the confirmation process and the state to which it degraded. If it's on youtube it would be well worth your time (about 25 min).

It makes me wounder if Trump has the nominee he thinks he has.

Wow did Collin's nail it. Such bravery from an elected official. Manchin too. At least we are done with this madness. Now you can go back to blaming Russia for Hillary losing.

Great speech by Sen Collins. I'm getting tired by the protestors/media circus and I'm sure most of the country is as well.

Thursday on CNN “Newsroom,” anchor Jim Sciutto brushed off accusations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh as simply “politics” as network commentator Scott Jennings defended the judge’s temperament at last week’s hearing.

“To be honest with you, I think Judge Kavanaugh reacted exactly the way most Americans would react to being smeared,” Jennings stated. “If somebody said the things about me that they said about him, I think I would have asked somebody to step outside.”

What you have left, after the mud is washed away, is Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh !


The drunken angry frat boy will rule on your personal liberties, and corporate green. Looks really swell to me.


It's even better in light of the fact that many of Kavanaugh's most ardent supporters couldn't even read, comprehend and cogently summarize a typical case that Kavanaugh has ruled on in the past.


Maine Senator Susan Collins has read, comprehended, and cogently summarized Brett Kavanaugh:

It would be only just if/when Kavanaugh gets confirmed, after being sworn in (by Clarence Thomas, of course), he produced a can of beer (Natural Light, naturally) from his judicial robe, punched a hole in it with his judicial gavel and proceeds to shotgun it. If you are going to get the reputation regardless, might as well take advantage of it.

“Now you can go back to blaming Russia for Hillary losing.”

Russian meddling is pretty much an accepted fact by those of us living in reality. The thought of another conservative simpleton on the high court is scary enough. We don’t need the added terror of people that willingly ignore the interference of a foreign enemy when it means their side wins. Some of us have concerns that run deeper than momentary political gains.
