Your fucking guy Kavanaugh is only going on the Court and the only reason he’s gotten anywhere in the judiciary is because of fucking politics. You just can’t handle the fact that your guy is a woman abusing asshole who should have gotten kicked in the nuts several times.

Ya know, I was 18 when Hurricane George struck PR. María’s devastation is often compared with George’s. Both brought a comparable level of devastation. FEMA’s recovery efforts for George were above and beyond what was done for María, even from the get-go. Since then, we’ve been struck by several storms and hurricanes, and recovery has been on par.

And this guy thinks that PR recovery has been the “best it could”. May he go fork himself. 🤬

Indisputably so. They are so fixated on illegal aliens and those who are not white committing crime that they ignore identical crimes when committed by white guys.

Don’t believe me? Just look at recent mass shootings, or even the murder of Iowa State golf star Celia Barquin. It was done by a white homeless guy, and it’s barely a ripple in the news, but right wingers spewed nonsensical ravings endlessly over the murder of Mollie Tibbetts because her alleged murderer was an immigrant.

Since 1995, the fastest person to ride a bicycle over ground was Dutch cyclist Fred Rompelberg, who rode behind a car at 167 MPH. That record has been obliterated by 45-year-old Denise Mueller-Korenek, who teamed up with a professional race car driver Shea Holbrook to reach 183.932 MPH over the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

The dragster has fairing on the back that essentially looks like a closet, to protect the cyclist from the wind. Behind it, Mueller-Korenek sat on a bike with gearing so steep that she needed to be towed to about 100 mph before taking over under her own power.

The tow rope was released some 1.5 miles into the run, Mueller-Korenek said on Facebook, “leaving 3.5 miles in the draft to achieve an average speed for the last mile of 183.9mph (between mile 4 & 5)!”

This is the secret society that Kavanaugh was a part of at Yale. What a creepy asshole.

Doug Ginsberg removed himself from consideration for a SC seat because he acknowledged that he committed the heinous crime of smoking pot when he was a professor. He didn’t lie — but then there were more recent witnesses to his “criminal” activity and he remembered engaging in this behavior.

It is possible that Kavanaugh actually doesn’t recall the incident but, given he’s a practiced liar, instead of saying the truth: “I was a blackout drunk in those days and I really don’t recall anything I did at the parties I attended. I apologize to Professor Ford for my injurious behavior toward her when we were both minors”. Of course, if he’s honest, then he would have to withdraw but he’s not honest.

40 years ago, when I was a college student in SoCal, I spent a few days at Stanford and a friend of a friend let me stay in his room at DKE house (1 of his roommates was away, I could use that bed). He treated me like a gentleman; I only found out later that our mutual friend had warned/threatened him to be on best behavior. He even spoke politely and in a gentle tone of voice when he asked my permission to tell his frat brothers a raunchy untrue story about me to enhance his reputation.

(other things I learned later — girls were amazed I’d spent days in that building without being assaulted. And that the Delta House of Animal House was modeled on the dekes.)

ETA: The DKE’s were not in any way a “secret society”. They were a national frat with many chapters.

That’s a lot of qualifications. He wouldn’t be where he is today if he were a honest and forthright person. He’s a GOP operative who has been rewarded for years of being a GOP opp first to the district court and now to the Supreme Court. He lied in 2006 and he’s lied now. But this story shows you how he views women.

A Bernie friend recently told me he voted for Jill and persuaded his father to do the same (His father probably would have supported Trump). I think he bought the nonsense that the Democratic Party was unfair to Bernie. He was shocked when I told him that Jill was also owned by the Russians, but she managed to portray herself as the environmental alternative to the major party candidates. Too few liberals placed the SC sufficiently high enough to vote D.

I’ve always had respect for the FBI.

If not, these were fairly shallow investigations. My guess is, the committee knows all this, and more, and they just don’t care.

A comment on Wonkette’s Susan Collins article:

Look. Susan Collins is a monster. She’s going to vote like a monster, because she is a monster. And she friggin’ doesn’t care.

Like Lindsey Graham, whatever enjoyable speculations people may indulge, she’s probably not being blackmailed into jumping on board this national express excursion flight into raw fascism: like Lindsey, she signed up, she’s an eager volunteer.

The Republican Party has been trending toward fascism since at least the 1970s and the infamous Powell Memorandum which provides the blueprint for literally everything that has happened since: and really since the 1950s, when what was then a fringe element of the Party (the John Birch types, seedbed for the Koch brothers, once a minority, now the whole ugly ball of Republican wax, which is like ear-wax, only worse) freaked out about the rise of liability laws, the popularity of Social Security, the regulatory tendencies of the post-war state, and the civil rights movement, and began to organize in earnest.

This is who these people are. They’re anti-democracy. They’re natural fascists. They believe in Master Race theory. They want to smash democracy because they think it’s bad and unfair to the rich. They want to erode voting rights until only Republicans are allowed to vote, because otherwise people will just vote for their own self-interest (Republicans have no sense of irony about this, none at all).

They believe rich people are rich because they’re better than other people: and that white people are white because they’re better than other people: and that strong men can’t be expected not to engage in acts of sexual aggression against women who are careless enough to go out in public without a duenna.

They believe the safety net is bad because it’s like feeding raccoons, you just get a bunch of lazy raccoons (this is practically a direct quote from numerous Republican politicians), so no more Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, VA benefits, jobless benefits, SNAP, CHIP, or public education. Privatize it all. Voucherize it. Break it. Smash it down to its original atoms. As long as there’s even one single billionaire out there weeping because he can’t siphon a few more dollars worth of public treasure into his private offshore accounts, it’s a friggin’ human tragedy.

And machine guns for everyone, because freedom: and no abortions or contraception, because Freedom Jesus.

Susan Collins is voting to place Brett Kavanaugh on the bench so that he, along with Roberts, Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch, can accelerate this shit. Not despite the fact that he will do this, but because he will do this. This is what Susan Collins believes in.

Ben, who the fuck asked you? And it’s about having an impartial/apolitical group look into Dr. Ford’s claims. But I get it, you’re a pathetic punk asshole who has never done anything decent in his life.

I accuse you of attempting to rape someone. When will you request that the FBI investigate this allegation?

Yes, Ben, if you’re applying to the Federal government for a position of national security or public trust, it is supposed to get investigated by the FBI.

You’d think someone that graduated from Harvard Law would know that but he’s an amoral partisan hack who has zero credibility outside the world of right wing self fellatio.

My two cents on Never Trumpers - I wouldn’t agree with most of them on most things, but if there’s a chance to damage the Trump machine (and modern conservatism), we’re gonna need a shit-ton of hammers.

And if Jen Rubin or Rick Wilson are swinging a couple of those hammers, I’ll take it. I’ll go back to hating on them later, but there’s work to do first.

Who’s going to reach wobbly conservatives more easily - someone who’s been on their side up until two years ago, or a hated liberal?

re: #85 HappyWarrior

If we can have Stalin to destroy Hitler, we can have Rubin to destroy this. I think you’re a little too hard on her TBH. Yes, she is a conservative and yes I wouldn’t necessarily call her an ally but she unlike your Senator Sasse and some of the other self-professed Never Trumpers, she’s actually willing to call out the entire GOP for their shit. I think she’s rightfully angry how the GOP are treating Dr. Ford. I’m just saying. She could be having a sincere moment where she is questioning the ideological/party agenda she worked to advance. IT does happen.

Well, Stalin only went after Hitler when Hitler invaded the Soviet Union first. He only did it for self-preservation.

As for Sasse, he’s not up for election this go round, and I suspect he figures people will have forgotten about Kavanaugh by the time he is.

Fischer on the other hand is up for election, and we’re trying to oust her. She was one of Trump’s first endorsers, and hasn’t said anything I can find on Kavanaugh which might hurt her campaign.

If the WH interfering with the FBI is a bad thing, it’s bad in principle, not whether or not it “helps” anybody (SPOILER: it usually doesn’t).

Or does he just assume that puerile “own that, libs!” snark is all his audience cares about?*

I’m speaking to Sasse’s “I don’t like or support Trump” and then voting for most of his agenda. Jen’s been critical of more than Sasse has. I hear ya thought about Stalin. Maybe not the best analogy but then again, remember that we were never officially attacked by Hitler either. It took Hitler declaring war on us for us to declare war on Germany.

I think he really is showing once again that he’s at best a mediocre mind and that’s enough to get by in conservative circles these days. He also never misses an opportunity ot be a condescending jerk to a Democratic woman. And if he were actually smart, and believed Kavanaugh innocent, he would actually see why an independent investigation is better than a partisan inquiry but I suspect he knows Kavanaugh is guilty but doesn’t care.

Jennifer Rubin is not an ally. She is still a conservative. She is only concerned to the degree Trump and others are making conservatism look bad by not using dog whistles.

[Embedded content]

She believes in the rule of law, including the 14th Amendment. She believes in letting all citizens over 18 being able to vote on who writes the law. She believes that Russians and other foreigners have no proper role in American elections.

That’s ally enough for me.

She seems to be doing better than most Never Trumpers in calling out the whole of the GOP too, not just Trump and Trump fanboys.
