Watch Live: Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court Confirmation Hearing

Politics • Views: 28,698

YouTube

Democrats are fighting hard today, as a batch of documents the Republicans tried to keep hidden are released by Sen. Cory Booker. It’s important to get all this in the record, but the bottom line is depressingly simple: the Republican Party has the votes they need to confirm this clearly dishonest GOP puppet to a lifetime on the Supreme Court.

I don’t know why anyone would accept the word of Grassley and Cornyn that these emails were already cleared.

I assume Grassley knew he didn’t have the votes to do shit about the Dems, so rather than look weak he decided to bullshit his way out of it. Thanks, dude, appreciate the piles of smoking guns.

I don’t know why anyone would accept the word of Grassley and Cornyn that these emails were already cleared.

They were already cleared two seconds after they both figured out they were looking real bad and Booker was showing them up because he has some fight in him.

You know, a lot of Democrats/liberals/lefties were bitching an moaning the Democrats were doing nothing to stop the Republicans nominated and appoint Kavanaugh.

I almost think they allowed that sentiment by laying low until these hearing and then they came out firing. I think they have in a way caught Grassley and the Republicans off guard.

Give ‘em some damn credit.

re: #13 Charles Johnson

The random capitalization is getting worse - much worse. Trump’s mind is coming undone.

I figure, like with a lot of things, there’s a tipping point before which it doesn’t seem like anything’s happening, and after which everything falls apart. We may be getting there. And if there are not enough Senate vote to convict at the beginning of impeachment, there very well may be at the end of it, Republicans or not.

Booker forced their hand with his document dump, so, of course, they’re trying to blunt his impact by lying their asses off that the committee (dominated by the GOP) had “cleared” their release, so no BFD. Only suckers and zealots would take what Grassley/Cornyn said as truth.

As a team they have been working together pretty well.

I like the fight. I think Booker calling out Cornyn and Grassley was masterful. He knew they were full of it…and when Durbin and others jumped in to back him they knew they had called their bluff.

I hope he displayed that Democrats need to do that all the time.

In the past too many backed down from Republican bullying instead of standing up to them directly.

I hope this gives all the Democratic candidates in this upcoming election some game to get behind and to be proud of.

if this 4AM clearing nonsense is true, the questions everyone should be asking:

I’m interested in your feedback, lawhawk - is Underwood being this aggressive in part because she’s not running for the seat in November, or are we losing out by not having her on the ballot? (And am I right to think that among the Democrats who are running, Maloney is a much better pick than Zephyr Teachout? His ads have been just brutally direct against Trump.)

She’s being aggressive because this is where the investigations are taking her office. They’ve been flush with evidence and opportunities to go after Trumpworld and now the RC church, and those investigations will continue under whoever replaces here. I do agree that she’s turned out to be quite impressive in her own right and would be formidable if she chose to run.

Since she isn’t, I’m thinking Letitia James is probably going to win the primary over Maloney or Teachout.

My mother owned a gold Trans Am like that one. My best moment of insane 20 year old driving came from that car… (downtown Minneapolis to Eau Claire ~ 90 miles in just under an hour. You do the math… < evil grin > Once we hit the interstate (I94) it was three figures the whole way. )

They have a spy themed bar in downtown Milwaukee called the Safe House. Walk in a door marked International Exports from off the alley, enter a very small quaint room, and if you say the password, a wall opens up and the bar is right there. Anyways, in the women’s bathroom they have this large photo of Burt Reynolds, and if one moves the heart, a buzzer goes off in the bar.

They were working on plans to see how they could stop her from making the swearing-in ceremony had they won.

They backed off when in September of 2008 the economy took the big dump and as Schmidt said…they were done more or less a shot to the head.

Coors was so exotic back then because you couldn’t get it east of the Mississippi. Later I learned about Coors. Anyway, strange that that’s the moment that stands out to me.

I have not read the book or viewed the movie. I hated that McCain/Palin bull so much I stayed away from it.

By the way, John Heilemann was on with Nicole today and did say he covered some of it, but he kind of made is seem what Schmidt was saying today was even more out in the open.

I guess it was all new to me.

Been a long time since I read the book, but from the movie they were certainly complicit:

Steve Schmidt: There are unknowns with Palin, and, ah, certainly it could go bad. But if it were me, I’d rather lose by ten points going for the win than lose by one point and look back and say “Goddamn, we should have gone for the win”.

and

Mark Salter: John is getting slammed for making an irresponsible choice!
Steve Schmidt: We picked her.
Mark Salter: No, *you two* picked her and then slapped her on the butt and shoved her out there under a banner saying “Country First”!

And Nicolle’s warm fuzzies worrying about what they were putting poor Palin through:

Nicolle Wallace: [shakes head, calls Steve Schmidt] Steve, it’s Nicolle. I will gladly resign if you want to blame me for Couric, but if you want me to stay, then I’m back on McCain’s bus tomorrow, as I never want to deal with that woman ever again!

They may have had regrets after all was said and done, but they were all in when they thought they could win.

More importantly, reading the article makes it look like Bernie is cherry picking facts:

Amazon, however, called Sanders’ assertions “inaccurate and misleading” in a blog post last week. The company says that Sanders’ data for food stamp recipients includes people who only worked at Amazon for a short period of time or who chose to work part-time. The median US salary for full-time Amazon employees is $34,123, it says. Sanders’ figure includes part-time employees and those who work globally.

It has invited the senator to tour one of its fulfillment centers, which is where many of Amazon’s lower-paid employees work.

The company highlighted that its average hourly wage for a full-time fulfillment center employee is more than $15 an hour, including cash, stock and incentive bonuses, but before overtime. Amazon also noted that it offers health and disability insurance, as well as retirement savings plans, company stock, tuition payments and up to 20 weeks of paid leave. The company says it created more than 130,000 new jobs in the U.S. last year.

I don’t think you can solve these problems with tax policy though. A better approach, I think, it reworking corporate governance. Require employee representation on the board of directors of publicly traded companies, require publicly traded companies to offer 401(k)’s that include company stock (thereby potentially creating another avenue for employee representation on the board). Ultimately, we have to get away from the shareholder primacy view of corporate governance and more towards a stakeholder view.

Yeah, utterly unserious*, but at least it wasn’t the yammering incoherence that is Sarah Palin unscripted.

*[small]As one who grew up in a small town, more than anything else, I hated the “Small Towns Are REAL ‘Murrika!” bullshit. Yeah, small towns are real America. And big towns. And small cities. And big cities. And suburbs. And islands in the middle of ocean. It’s ALL Real America.{/small]

I despised when she went to a red pocket of Virginia and proclaimed how glad she was to be in the “Real Virginia” and I hated McCain’s brother describing NOVA as “Commie country.” Meanwhile Biden as Obama’s chief surrogate was reminding everyone what you’re saying. And remember we were two years removed here in VA from George Allen calling that Indian-American kid a “macaca”, that kid btw had more Virginia bonafides than the son of the football coach who used his Dad’s coaching career to build his career.

Yup. While I hesitate to use the trite “not all men,” I will when a conservative tries to lump me in with their projection.

When women use the group noun “men,” it is understood that “not all men” is included in that. Problems of English grammar, not the real problems women are outlining.

When some wingnut tries to claim that “women must cover up because men can’t control their hormones,” they don’t speak for me. They might not be able to, which means perhaps someone should be keeping an eye on them.

Just saying it is not stupid for the individual because they know it is their behavior. They can’t control their own behavior. They are aware and choose it.

To excuse it, they say all guys have that problem and it allows them to go with the behavior because they have that excuse to justify it.

They surround themselves with others that think like that and get in groups.

Then they get stupid…and dangerous.

The GOP basically have no way to sell Kavanaugh’s nomination other than a charm offensive. They can’t really tout his record because they’re working so hard to keep his record hidden and he keeps dodging questions on his record, which the same reason they can’t really sell him on his personal views because they’re working to keep as much of that hidden as they possibly can. So what’s left is “He’s such a nice guy,” which is aimed more at making their fence-straddlers feel okay about voting for him than actually selling him to the public. The party leadership is prepared to gamble their Senate majority on getting Kavanaugh seated before November.
