The Kavanaugh confirmation proceedings are the most shameful moment in the history of the US Senate.
High school yearbooks?
Publishing anonymous accusations?
Using Kavanaugh as a human piñata ?
Retweeting phony stories in an effort to visit harm on Kavanaugh?
Stalking and assaulting legislators?
Threatening Kavanaugh with impeachment if confirmed?
Are you f**king kidding me?
This is sick. It is diseased. I should clarify – democrats are diseased. They are mentally ill.
What this sordid process has done is demonstrate very clearly the difference between the left and the right. Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor did not see their personal lives and family destroyed. Some Republicans voted to approve them. Like Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas was lynched during his confirmation process. GOP nominees are subject to politics of personal destruction while democrat nominees are treated respectfully.
In the other day’s hearing, this was again repeated. Ford was treated with deference and Kavanaugh was assailed, in particular by some of highly dubious character.
A man who groped a girl in high school,
A man who lied about being a Vietnam War veteran,
A woman who slept with a man 30 years her elder to build her political career,
And the woman who had a Chinese spy on her payroll for 20 years ,

Blumenthal went completely off the rails
“Do you believe Anita Hill?”
Then he stepped on his own rake. Blumenthal cited a Latin term to Kavanaugh that basically means “once a liar, always a liar.” Blumenthal claimed to have served in Vietnam. He never did.
Remember how Ford’s appearance was in doubt because she was so afraid to fly?
Mitchell: “May I ask, Dr. Ford, how did you get to Washington?
Ford: “In an airplane.”
Mitchell: “I ask that because its been reported by the press that you would not submit to an interview with the committee because of your fear of flying. Is that true?”
Ford: “I was hoping that they would come to me (in California) but I realized that was an unrealistic request.”
Mitchell: “it would have been a quicker trip for me.”
Ford: “That was certainly what I was hoping to avoid getting on an airplane. But I eventually was able to get up the gumption with the help of some friends and get on the plane.”
Mitchell: “You fly fairly frequently for your hobbies and you’ve had to fly for your work. Is that true?”
Ford: “Correct. Unfortunately.”
And about this:
“I was hoping that they would come to me (in California) but I realized that was an unrealistic request.”
Uh, not really.
In the hearing, when Ford was asked if anyone, including her lawyers, had relayed to her the committee’s offer to visit her in California, Ford refused to answer when her lawyer objected:
Question: “Okay. Was it communicated to you by your counsel or someone else that the committee had asked to interview you, and that they offered to come out to California to do so?”
Counsel: “I’m going to object, Mr. Chairman, to any call for privileged conversation between counsel and Dr. Ford.”
Question: “Could you validate that the offer was made, without her saying a word? Is it possible for that question to be answered without violating any counsel relationships?
Ford: “Can I say something to you? Do you mind if I say something to you directly? I just appreciate that you did offer that. I wasn’t clear on what the offer was. If you were going to come out to see me, I would have happily hosted you and been happy to speak with you out there. I just did not — it was not clear to me that that was the case.”
This is rather important. If her lawyers failed to present her the offer, they could find themselves sanctioned, at the very least.
The media has gone completely derelict. NBC made public an anonymous letter making accusations at Kavanaugh. Liberals have happily retweeted a phony story without so much as trying to check its veracity first.
Mainstream media reporters and commentators appeared to be much too zealous in spreading a false story on social media Friday that was very damaging to Brett Kavanaugh, the president’s nominee to the Supreme Court.
The story was contained in just one tweet, and it had no link, just a claim that the content came from the Wall Street Journal.
Despite the dubious sourcing, various reporters retweeted it over and over for hours,apparently in hope that the damaging story was true.
Among the a**holes who retweeted it: Laurence Tribe and Aaron Blake.
Laurence Henry “Larry” Tribe (born October 10, 1941) is a Chinese-born American lawyer and scholar who is the Carl M. Loeb University Professor at the Harvard Law School in Harvard University. Tribe’s scholarship focuses on American constitutional law. He also works with the firm Massey & Gail LLP on a variety of matters.
See the quality Harvard can turn out.
Larry O’Donnell sounded more like Rosie O’Donnell when he misrepresented something Lindsey Graham said.
MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell falsely claimed that Sen. Lindsey Graham called Dr. Christine Ford’s allegations against Brett Kavanaugh “garbage” in a tweet Friday.
Ever notice that when right wing groups offer support they’re well mannered? Ever notice that left wing feminist protests mean pussy hats, screaming, stalking, harassing and shouting at those with whom they disagree? For a nice representation of the insanity of the left, go here.
"Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame!"

CNN leads with this
“Christine Blasey Ford’s friend is not refuting Ford’s allegation, will cooperate with FBI, lawyer says”
But read the article and you find this little nugget
The previous statement, which Walsh released to CNN and the committee last week, said, “Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”
The loathsome Michael Avenatti produced a “witness” making obscene and completely asinine accusations. Left wing media was all too happy to run with them. This “witness” has been sued for sexual harassment and has had a restraining order imposed upon her. PMSNBC made a documentary about her.
Immediately after the hearing some dem House operative doxxed the GOP committee members.
Personal information of Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch were posted by an unknown person located in the House of Representatives on Thursday during the hearing of Supreme Court Nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
The information, which supposedly included home addresses and phone numbers, was posted – or doxxed – on the senators’ respective Wikipedia pages, where users are allowed to update the information at any time. The information has since been removed.
All three targeted senators were members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who questioned both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh regarding Ford’s allegations that he sexually assaulted her over 36 years ago. The leaking of information occurred sometime after the three lawmakers questioned Kavanaugh.
And should Kavanaugh be confirmed, democrats have promised to
kill destroy him. Here is the threat.
If Senate GOP ignores Dr. Blasey Ford and tries to muscle an attempted rapist onto the Supreme Court:
1. They will pay dearly this November.
2. Senators up in 2020 (Collins, Gardner et al) will feel intense heat for next two years.
3. Kavanaugh will not serve for life.

This is the best of democrats. This is the best of the media.
The notoriously squishy Sen. Jeff Flake demanded another (that will make 7) FBI investigation and so Trump has ordered one. Raise your hand if you think any democrats will change their minds once Kavanaugh is again exonerated. And before you could blink, Ford’s attorney Katz demanded that there be no time limit to the FBI investigation.
Oh, BTW, here is the letter written by the PhD Ford
Realistically, one needs to examine the preponderance of of evidence. Kavanaugh had contemporaneous journals, witnesses and an exemplary life of service. Ford had memory loss and no corroboration.
Democrats were not and are not serious about Ford’s accusations. Were they truly serious they would not have sat on them for seven weeks without acting. That tells you all you need to know.
It is also amusing for anyone to think that Kavanaugh could be such a boozing and sexual-assaulting youngster and somehow still manage to be at the top of his class throughout his academic career.
But out of all this horror, I have a new hero
It was a speech for all time.
This shitshow is undeniable proof that the media is the hand maiden of the left. It also is undeniable proof that democrats suck.
Liberalism once again is proven to be a mental illness.
Tucker was good last night.
I believe Mrs Ford signed and dated that “letter.”
But look at the little “g” in August.
Then compare it to EVERY single letter “g” in the letter’s text.
Do the same with the letters “u” and “s.”
That letter was written by someone else.
I’m both incensed and amazed that Dems are blowing their wad to get rid of Pres Trump’s most moderate nominee possible for the rest of his time in office.
They’ve ruined their brand and used up all their best moves.
And for what?
Moderate swing-voter, Justice Kennedy personally picked Brett Kavenaugh to replace him because Brett is just as moderate and likely to swing vote as Kennedy was.
While on the same court as Obama nominee Merrick Garland, Brett Kavenaugh voted in agreement with Garland 97% of the time!
Gateway Pundit adds the internet sleuths have found pictorial proof Ford lied about why she had to tell a councilor about her “sexual assault,” in 2012.
See the photos of her home before 2012.
The door, the 2nd door, was already in as was the rental part of their property.
Ford testified that at the therapist’s office, she told the therapist that she and her husband were quibbling over the placement of a second door. NOT HAD BEEN, BUT WERE, which denotes present time (2012). The reason for the “quibbling” was her traumatic experience in 1982. Yet the second door had been installed by 2011 and major remodeling had been done by 2011 as evidenced by the roof line from the pictures.
Well, she could have asked some questions. Grassley’s generous and conciliatory offer to move the entire proceedings to California was widely reported on the news. Well, on Fox, anyway. I can’t verify that ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC or CNN reported it. Maybe that could explain why they didn’t call out the Democrats that accused Grassley and Republicans of trying to prevent Ford from testifying. Or, not.
Um… look at Booker’s picture. Not very Presidential.
Lesson: DON’T get in the way of the leftist agenda.
Yeah, but evidence interferes with the use of weak accusations.
That ALONE tells us everything. It tells anyone what is true and what is a lie. One has to WILLFULLY ignore this glaring fact to believe the Democrats. THAT tells you quite a bit as well.
Could this be why Obama’s records remain sealed?
I sent Graham an email to his website after his speech thanking him for voicing what many of us was thinking in the manner many of us want to express it. His website had crashed due to being swamped with activity.
I wonder at what point the gutless wonders who still sit on the sidelines will finally admit they have provided enough concessions, embarrassed themselves enough with their cowardice finally declare, “Enough. Kavanaugh is the right man for the job.”
@Nan G: Would it be too cruel to wish that Kavanaugh, when confirmed, would make a statement to the effect of, “You know, I never had any intention of reversing Roe v. Wade, but Democrats have shown me that none of you deserve to be able to get an abortion. So, I am going to make it my mission to wipe Roe v. Wade off the map. Democrats have vowed to continue to destroy me, so what do I have to lose?”
So, Senator Blumental… falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus?
Of course Kavanaugh could’ve been a heavy drinker and sexual assaulter and do well at school.
Dr. Ford came off as sincere and credible. Kavanaugh was loud, shrill and demonstrated an unrestrained anger that certainly makes him unfit to be a Supreme Court Justice. It was clear he wanted no part of an FBI investigation. He certainly did not sound like an innocent man, but rather a guy who needed to rely on an overload of emotion to disguise his lack of truthful substance.
Several classmates say he misrepresented himself on Thursday. Leland Keyser says she believes Dr. Ford. Now Kavanaugh will have to be subject to a polygraph. And this is the best candidate for the Supreme Court?
This woman is a professor, it seems many things are unclear, who is paying for things, her answer falling into the dumb blonde 80s valley girl zone, someone needs to advise her she is way, way too old for the act. It was caught by the prosecutor she knew.
AV: Your link was subscriber only, they hate I block for privacy.
Could have been. Yet, there is no evidence that he was. Meanwhile, there is LOADS of evidence that he wasn’t. That’s a big problem for you liberals, isn’t it? You have an nice, big, juicy accusation and you simply can’t get around all the PROOF he is innocent. Dadgummit, ain’t it shitty when truth gets in the way of a good butt-f**king?
Yeah, but that ain’t holding up. She lied about a fear of flying. She lied about not knowing about Grassley’s offer to come to California. She lied about being a psychologist. She lied about date of the remodel on her home and, therefore, the motivation for any therapy. Now, taking all that into account, what’s the probability she lied about Kavanaugh almost raping her in exchange for a $1 million GoFundMe?
Tell me, what is the acceptable sound made when an innocent man is accused by Democrats and the media of a heinous crime? A low, gurgling, “Oh… well.”?
He’s been the subject of six. You really think another one worries him?
Yes, he did. THAT is the sound an innocent man makes. Shaky, whiny, crying is the sound of a woman committing perjury.
Misrepresented in what way? Just because someone says they believe Ford does not mean she’s telling the truth. I mean… YOU say you believe her and she lied… a LOT. Doesn’t really carry that much weight, does it?
Just because some slimy people slime someone does not mean the person slimed is slimy. Certainly not as slimy as the people doing the sliming. Will Kavanaugh get the same polygraph as Ford? Run through the questions numerous times, then get asked the same question twice? And then, if the test doesn’t go well, throw it out and do it again until the proper results are achieved? None of which would be supervised by any authorities? What, exactly, would that prove?
Your extended investigation might work against you. I myself have sent links to John Cornyn demanding they be part of the investigation just on the off chance the obvious might be overlooked.
If Brett Kavanaugh could be a serial sexual assaulter and a heavy drinker, even on week days, and remain at the top of his class for his entire academic career and get into Yale Law School then I want to be Brett Kavanaugh.
Dr. John, I have a lot more respect for you than Judge Kavanaugh.
No evidence of his heavy drinking?
Reached after the hearing, Lynne Brookes, an undergraduate classmate of Judge Kavanaugh’s at Yale University, said she believed he had “grossly misrepresented and mischaracterized his drinking.”
“He frequently drank to excess,” she said. “I know because I frequently drank to excess with him.”
New York Times
@Gary Miller: “excess”. And what is that? And, who is Lynne Brookes? Before we can believe anything she says, her connections to the Democrat party, ANTIFA, Soros and NARAL have to be investigated. WE have to do this because the liberal left have proven themselves to be such rotten, stinking, despicable liars and will lie about anything to achieve their far left goals.
How about addressing Ford’s lies? You seem to see lies everywhere but where they actually are.
Because of a law in CA, the NPR radio cannot call Mrs Ford, “doctor.”
In CA you can only be called a doctor IF you finished medical school & internship, are a dentist, a shrink and a few other medical positions.
A college professor who sets up models for grad students to hang their research on is called a “professor,” in CA.
Mrs Ford’s bio at her university was changed 7 times in the last 30 days!
The day she testified it listed her as a “doctor.”
But the very next day, that disappeared.
Dianne Feinstein told The Independent:
“It was an important nominee to the Supreme Court and one that could tip the balance on key issues, and that is a women’s right to control her own reproductive system, as well as gun issues…as well as presidential authorities.”
So there you have it; Kavanagh doesn’t march lock step with the baby killer philosophy. So why are the Democrats putting this man through so much hell when they aren’t going to vote for him no matter what the FBI reports?
@retire05: They are supposed to be considering his qualifications as a judge, not their own political preferences. The Republicans didn’t like the political bent of Sotomayor or Kaygan, but they could not disqualify them a judges.
True, the argument against Kavanaugh has nothing to do with anyone actually believing he is a sex offender. They simply think they can tell Trump who he can choose as a candidate.
Elections have consequences.
@Gary Miller: Ms Brookes his woman went to COLLEGE with him not HIGH SCHOOL, She also made no allegations of any type of sexual behavior, this actually backs up his testimony he developed no tolerance to to many beers, a sloppy drunk most people are sloppy when drunk I bet she was too. Maybe she should suffer now 30 some years later no matter what type of stellar career she has, lets drag her through the mud and slime she hung out with him!
Good link AV
Does anyone think if this FBI check comes up clean Retardacus, Spystein and the rest of the minority will be satisfied and apologize? Will the 7th investigation satisfy the loons protesting?
Kavanaugh drank beer underaged.
Of course not. But now that Grassley has sent criminal referrals to the FBI for false statements that were made during this Soviet style circus, things are going to get a whole lot more interesting.
@another vet: @another vet: 1 problem, only women that accuse leftists can be destroyed, they will make her a martyr.
There is no sanity on the left especially when they lose.
And Obama sold and used drugs as an adult and the loonie left put him in the WH- twice. Hypocritical morons with no standards. As a beer lover, I feel we are being discriminated against!
@another vet: From the state with the 3rd most bars per capita, drinking is no big deal, just learn to be responsible when downing a few. I personally never liked beer I like a glass of wine, or a margarita.
Q . How can you tell a liberal is close by? A. Listen for the whining when the National Antheme is played
No. Already, Ford’s legal team is declaring it should be an investigation without end, like Mueller’s. Investigate until something is found and if there is nothing, keep investigating. Why hasn’t the Democrats figured out how they can use, “He’s under investigation; he must be guilty of SOMETHING!”?
@kitt: I was shocked at the letter. It looked like the scrawlings of someone having great difficulty putting their thoughts together. She has to be bright and possess good writing skills given her education. There is something “not right” with her brain. It reminds me of someone with a mental illness trying to write coherently. She seemed confused and could not remember if she gave the letter to the Washington Post. That’s a basic to remember. She looked like a wounded human being. I really think she is a pawn. Vile. Absolutely vile.
Do you remember the republican-majority Senate delaying confirmation hearings on Merrick Garland for nearly a year, you dumb, hypocritical bastard? Here’s a question for you: What Supreme Court nominee recently observed, “What goes around, comes around” ?
Something else that’s coming around is November. Another thing is Robert Mueller.
@Songbird: Well, hell, she only had a little over a month to coordinate with her team of lawyers and make this stuff up.
Do YOU remember Biden and the Democrats declaring that is how Presidential nominations for the Supreme Court by a lame duck President should be handled, you dumb, hypocritical bastard?
Go ahead and blow steam our your ears—or whatever orifice it comes out of, in reference to a famous Trump remark. We’ll see who’s got the most steam at the ballot boxes. I’m guessing we do, and with good reason.
What? POLLS? (snicker)
Based on righteous outrage, and based on There will be no help from Vladimir Putin’s hackers tinkering with an electoral college system this time. If you want to look at the polls, I suppose you can do that, too.
@Greg: Based on the fact that Putin didn’t “tinker” with the Electoral College, and based on the fact that you arrogant, elitist, ignorant liberals have never figured out what happened to you November of 2016, you are in for a massive disappointment.
My things have gotten a lot nastier on here. Sign of the times.
@Deplorable me: That’s what I mean. They should have had her shaped up to testify by now. I thought her eye glasses looked all smudged. Could you tell? I just thought she was kind of bizarre. Tragic, befuddled, confused, trying to be too nice. Come to think of it, I bet her handlers wanted her to look disheveled. Normally they would assist a client in looking their best. And All that beer guzzling in college sounds completely normal to me. Frat boys the worst. Doesn’t mean he was a sexually abusive drunk. It was the 80s, it could have been coke!
@Greg: If you are wrong again, will you go somewhere else? so intelligent people can have uninterrupted intelligent conversations?
