    When we take back the House and Senate in November I hope the first piece of business is the removal of Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court, if he’s even on the Supreme Court. I’m still holding out hope that either Collins or Murkowski vote no on Kavanaugh.

      Yes. I think this explains why the DEMS are suing for all of his records. They’re building a case because they know they’re gonna regain control of both houses

      Impeachment from SCOTUS requires 2/3 vote of the Senate. It will take a long, long time for that to happen. We are screwed if he gets confirmed. Among the first cases to come up when SCOTUS convenes next week:

      Gamble v. United States
      Docket No. 17-646
      Issue: Whether the Supreme Court should overrule the “separate sovereigns” exception to the double jeopardy clause.

      This is to determine whether states can prosecute crimes in addition to the federal government, i.e., whether Trump can pardon everyone and in addition remove himself and others from further jeopardy of state prosecution.

      THIS is part of the reason for RUSH to confirm Kavanaugh. It’s GROTESQUE.

    The American Bar Association wants a postponement and full investigation:
    THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION took the highly unusual step of writing to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) urging them to postpone any vote until a full investigation can be conducted. “Each appointment to our nation’s Highest Court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote,” wrote the group’s president,Robert Carlson. “Deciding to proceed without conducting additional investigation would not only have a lasting impact on the Senate’s reputation, but it will also negatively affect the great trust necessary for the American people to have in the Supreme Court.” (TP)
    –GRAHAM just hours before the above announcement, claimed the bar Association’s endorsement of Kavanaugh to be “the gold standard”.

    I can’t get past that polygraph test that Dr. Ford took, and yes polygraphs aren’t allowed in court. You know what, even criminals will ask for polygraph test, even though they know that they are guilty. They believe that they can beat a polygraph test. So when Kavanaugh refuses to even take a polygraph test it tells me everything I need to know. Even a guilty criminal will ask for a DNA or polygraph test on the outside chance that it will clear them, but Kavanaugh, he wants no parts of a polygraph test.

    • September 28, 2018 at 12:41 pm

      His extreme arrogance, his outsized hubris, is a cover for his shame. He is in extreme denial but at some level he knows that he is guilty and his rageful outbursts belie all this. He’s a walking sociopath.

So many criminal creeps in power passing laws and making policies that hurt every single last one of us. And we don’t even know the half of it because of Trump’s insane bullshit firehose of scandals every damn day and our pathetic press who can’t and won’t focus and keep up.

    Thinking the skin tone, physical and behavioral signs of alcohol dependence, or unrecovered alcoholism were very much on display at the hearing.
    Wondering if Kavanaugh did any alcohol or drugs in the a.m. prior to the hearing. And also in the absence of such, if denied, might have been ‘driving him crazy’.

    Kavanaugh is in denial. ARE WE in denial about what we saw yesterday?
    We also heard Trumputin’s mouthpiece Graham screaming repeated threats: “If you don’t vote xxxx is going to happen to you.”
    imo mobster Trump has Kavanaugh in the same vice grip.

  28. September 28, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    How many times did Kavanaugh say the word BEER yesterday?

  29. September 28, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    Be careful, people. And yesterday, it was reported that Facebook is sharing your phone number with businesses (I’m assuming that a phone number is provided is you want two-part authentication for logon?)

      A Russian oligarch has been funding Graham, McConnell, Grassley et al for quite some time (details seem to be missing from the internet).
      They’re there to protect Russian interests and one would think Graham earned a couple of hammer and sickly badges yesterday.

      • 97 jacquelineoboomer
        September 28, 2018 at 2:24 pm

        Just getting back – you probably know already now that (as I hear it) Flake implied he can’t vote yes without allowing one week for the FBI to do its due diligence, in re-opening the background check. trump says “it’s up to Grassley.” Grassley took the vote today to move the nomination to the floor, so it’s up to McConnell. Graham said he’d be the only one (ugh) who could talk to trump, but so far trump’s being (suspiciously) agreeable. Bottom line – Flake can hold this up, because he’s also talking with other Rs – not just Ds – and that implication is other Rs might not vote yes w/o the FBI’s extended involvement, either.

        And now to take my goddess nap! 🙂

    If one were to design the perfect voice, face of a sexual assault accuser, it would be Dr. Ford. She was perfect, even Fox news thought so.
    So what does it say to women that have been sexually assaulted, that don’t have the “gifts” of insight, education, pose, articulation that Dr. Ford brought? Dr. Ford was the best women could hope for to represent us all. I cried watching her strength. For so many of us yesterday was a painful day,a day of reckoning. Dr. Ford become “all of us”, and how proud we were. Yet so many still see Kavanaugh as the victim. Bring in the only witness to the crime…Mark Judge. The R’s did not want a search for the truth..they wanted to “show” us that they “let” the accuser testify.
    So the R’s message to the women that have been sexual assaulted? STFU, we don’t care. I think Melania has a jacket for them.

      What next. No one expected Flake to vote NO to get Kavanaugh out of committee and on to the full senate. That is a huge burden for one person. …unless that person is strong. Flake is not. Our only hope now is that the vote in the full senate Flake has cover with 1 or 2 other senators voting no, unless a proper FBI investigation has been completed. The rathe of the GOP on one person would be unbearable…unless of course that person had a strong moral compass.

      Plus I think they’ll also be interviewing the other women who’ve come forward … both of whom (I think I recall) through their attorneys have said they’d be willing to talk with the FBI.

    • 128 jacquelineoboomer
      September 28, 2018 at 2:26 pm

      Mark Judge has implied through his attorney that he’ll be getting a “doctor’s note” to get out of being involved, but hopefully the FBI will work through that.

    September 28, 2018 at 2:32 pm

      • 137 Don
        September 28, 2018 at 2:55 pm

        Lying to the F.B.I is easier to prove than lying to congress. So yes he can not be charged if he lied to congress. But the F.B.I is a whole different animal. Kavanaugh can always say he made a “misstatement” to the F.B.I if he’s questioned and then found to have been lying or untruthful. If you want to get caught lying, my best advice is to get caught lying to congress.

    So now Kavanaugh is sitting around waiting to find out if he’ll have to talk to the F.B.I., and trust me, he’s already thinking it wouldn’t be so bad not being on the Supreme Court. If I were Kavanaugh, I’d get out before the decision is made for him because his future is being decided by those in the Whitehouse and on Capital Hill.

    • September 28, 2018 at 3:04 pm

      I’m wondering if he withdraws now, whether that would salvage his circuit position. That might motivate him to do so.

        September 28, 2018 at 3:11 pm

        To tell you the truth, Kavanaugh is all in, everything in his life is on the line. Lets put it this way, if the F.B.I comes back with some bad shit, Kavanaugh’s judgeship on the D.C. Circuit is over. The only way he might be able to get out is if he withdraws his nomination, and even then that won’t necessarily stop the F.B.I investigating.
