Sunday – Do you hear the people sing?

 

 

Congratulations all those in Bunkerville land. Justice Kavanaugh is happily installed as the ninth Supreme. Two clips today.

Do you hear the people sing? – Les Miserables

I caught this over at Adrienne’s Corner one of Bunkerville’s favorite blogger buddies. Wander over for a great read:

From Deplorable to Dregs: Now We’re MILITANT NORMALS!!..

 

 

 

I had to add this one. Caught as Feinstein and her chums had just finished the latest FBI update on Justice Kavanaugh and were speaking to the press. I can only wonder what was going on in her mind. Is there a tear in her eye? Be sure and have the sound on.

Kavanaugh – The cost of taking on the Clintons

 

Kavanaugh claimed that the Clintons were included behind the orchestrated attacks upon him. An unwise move? Now Hillary comes out with the “I am a victim of the vast Right Wing conspiracy” trope. Her remarks made at the Atlantic Festival. The memo written by Kavanaugh in 1998 should prove my point that the Clintons have a long memory.

Why would that be? Kavanaugh spared no mercy for Bill during the Starr impeachment investigation. Especially because he went after Bill and his sexual proclivities. It was no doubt unwise to raise the Clinton name. Awakening the beast from the underworld. But they were no doubt already about the business of aiding and abetting the destruction of one Brett Kavanaugh.

 

 

The Clintons don’t forget. Ever. And how just like the Clintons to help orchestrate a character smear against Judge Kavanaugh for things that never happened because Mr. Kavanaugh was in 1998 adamant that then-President Clinton answer for things that actually did take place.

 

Mentioning the Clinton name gave Hillary the opening once again, its just that vast right wing conspiracy raising it’s ugly head. Apparently if one has a different political view it’s simply a conspiracy. Rare indeed.

The Clinton’s are users.

Yet there’s another dimension to their chronic crookedness, and it gets insufficient attention even though it might be more important to the nation’s well-being.

“Wherever they go, whatever they do, ethics are trashed and suspicions of criminal conduct follow them like night follows day.”

It is that, in addition to being personally corrupt, the Clintons are corrupters. They are piggish users, with the people and institutions around them inevitably tarnished and sometimes destroyed even as the Clintons escape to their next scam. NY Post

 

Hillary in this clip extends her views regarding the vast Right Wing conspiracies. A real laugh-a-rama.

Ex-boyfriend: Ford had no fear of flying, coached polygraph test

 

Christian Martyrs Last Prayer

An interesting find in the quicksand of the faltering Ford Circus Maximus. So much to choose from, so little time. I chose this little item to show that prosecutor Mitchell, in her supposedly failed questioning of Ford, had plenty of information prior to her go at Ford.

Let’s get on with the show:

 

The alleged ex-boyfriend also claims that Ford frequently flew, including in small propeller aircraft, without complaint over the course of their relationship and had no fear of small spaces or rooms with only one exit. Ford’s claims that phobias of these things have plagued her since the early 1980s as a result of a 17-year-old Kavanaugh attacking her have been central elements of her story.

In that time, he claims to have witnessed Ford, then studying psychology, coach a close friend as she prepared for government administered polygraph exams.Further, the man claims Ford never mentioned being a victim of sexual assault in the eight years they knew each other and never once mentioned Kavanaugh’s name. Finally, he claims their relationship ended amid infidelity and credit card fraud on her part. He does, however, claim that he “finds Ford believable” and did not “want to become involved” with the investigatory process.

Note her attorney tries to cut off the questioning.

Flake makes second visit to New Hampshire – won’t rule out Prez run

 

Flake makes his second visit to New Hampshire, basking in his new found fame no doubt. Just like all the other media hogs who are prancing around for their 15 minutes of flame.

If you didn’t catch my late yesterday post, do it. It is a must read. Follow the link and it takes you to the full report the prosecutor Mitchell gave to the Senate. It’s devastating.

Prosecutor who questioned Ford, shreds her case against Kavanaugh in memo

Now back to Flake who couldn’t even win his primary so is retiring.

Following on the heels of his theatrical declaration that his vote on Kavanaugh was conditional upon another FBI investigation, the Arizona Republican set the rumors mills running as he headed to New Hampshire.

Flake appeared no worse for wear after his vote, having a grand time alongside his friend, Democrat Sen. Chris Coons at the Global Citizens Festival on the weekend.

The spineless lawmaker joked with the liberal crowd to “feel free to join me in an elevator any time,” making light of the incident in which two George Soros-funded protesters confronted him in an elevator at the Capitol before the Committee vote.

Riding on his new-found fame, Flake is making his second visit to the state which holds the first primary in the race for the White House, sparking speculation that he may be teeing up for a 2020 challenge to President Trump’s re-election.

Prosecutor who questioned Ford, shreds her case against Kavanaugh in memo

 

I for one, dismissed the Prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, out of hand regarding her questioning of Ford. It appeared Mitchell wandered to no point but I missed it entirely. Looking back, that is what prosecutors do. Lead them on then slam the door. I was not alone. Many thought she acted as if it were a deposition. Nope. Do read the whole thing over at the Daily Wire. I am dismayed that this isn’t getting the attention it so richly deserves. The party line is that we are sure something happened to her, it just wasn’t Kavanaugh. Read this.. it won’t disappoint. Two posts today, earlier catch Mustang’s post: Do You want to live forever?

 

Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor who questioned Christine Blasey Ford last week during a hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote a five-page memo that was released on Sunday that outlines why she would not bring criminal charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Mitchell’s memo notes nine significant problems with Ford’s testimony and underscores that her case is “even weaker” than a “he said, she said” case.

“A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove,” Mitchell states. “But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them. For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the prosecutor.

1. Dr. Ford has not offered a consistent account of when the alleged assault happened,

She lays bare why she thinks so.

The following 8 points are even more devastating.

Convicted Felon Testifies Against Kavanaugh

 

 

Post by Mustang.

Does anyone recall John Dean?  He was former White House Counsel under President Richard M. Nixon and played a key role in the 1973 Watergate scandal.  Now, long after Nixon passed away, Dean likes to tell folks that he warned Mr. Nixon that there was a “cancer” growing on the presidency. 

Of course, how can we ever know what he may (or may not) have said to Nixon?  He may have had that conversation in the same way that Senator Blumenthal from Connecticut was a hero from the Vietnam war.  But facts are inconvenient things, and John Dean ended up spending four-months in prison for obstruction of justice.  Yes, only four months.  It must have been the deal of the century for the rat who participated in unlawful behavior and then turned state’s evidence.

In any case, Dean added his two cents to Christine Ford’s three cents during the Senate Judiciary—Brett Kavanaugh hearing.  He is now warning the senate that confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh will lead to a White House takeover of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).  We’ll examine this testimony in a moment, but first let’s take a look at Dean after serving four (4) months in prison in 1973.

Shortly after serving in prison for his role in Watergate, Dean became an investment banker, an author, and a lecturer.  There is serious money to be made on the lecture circuit; if you don’t believe me, just ask Billy Clinton.  In his books and lectures, Dean chronicles his experiences in the White House.  In 1976 he wrote a book titled Blind Ambition (actually written by someone else), and this was made into a TV mini-series in 1979.  So, life was good for Dean after becoming a felon.  Oh, Martin Sheen played the part of Dean in the series.  Of course.

Mr. Dean, in appearing before the committee, warned the senate that conservatives have constructed a court that is overly deferential to executive power, particularly since Republicans control both the House and Senate.  Dean said, “Under Judge Kavanaugh’s recommendation, if a president shot someone in cold blood on Fifth Avenue, that president could not be prosecuted while in office.”

Yes, he said that.  It is at this point that one begins to wonder how Dean became White House Counsel in the first place —or how he ever got to appear in front of such a powerful committee.  Crikey!  But GOP Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) did push back when he told Dean, “I think you and your co-conspirators hurt my country,” and then noting that Dean ultimately did the right thing after Watergate, added, “you only did it when you were cornered like a rat, and it’s hard for me to take your testimony seriously.”

Well okay, there is plenty of room in this country for divergent views, but I think Dean is seriously off track.  He seems to overlook the fact that if the Senate and House are in the hands of the GOP, it is only by the will of the people.  If the President of the United States is a Republican, it is by the will of the people. 

And if a Republican president nominates justices to the SCOTUS who view their role as interpreting the Constitution (as opposed to legislating), then it too must be —by extension— the will of the people.  I guess what stymies me with Dean and others is that how does a well-educated man get to be obtuse when it comes to fundamental American civics?

Whether the SCOTUS is gaining too much power, or relinquishing its power to the presidency, is a matter of debate.  Senator Ben Sasse was recently eloquent when he argued that the US Congress have become lazy and ineffective, too willingly sending to the court matters that are actually the responsibility of the legislature.  Apparently, SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh agrees: his role, he said, is not political—it’s judicial. 

Democrats think the US government should take over everything … including health care.  In evaluating Kavanaugh, Democrats assembled a slate of witnesses who argued about the impact Kavanaugh would have on such “hot-button” issues as voting rights, access to abortion, and gun control.  Ah, the Democrats.  What a bunch of clowns. 

One might recall when Democrats controlled both houses of congress and the presidency, they passed Obama-Care in the middle of the night and sent it straightaway to the president for his signature.  No one in Congress read the measure before it was signed into law, and “We the People” were unaware that the law was less of a health care measure than it was a massive tax.  (Side note: If there was any justice inside the beltway, every member of Congress would be forced into the kind of health care system employed in the United Kingdom).

In spite of what John Dean thinks, the American Bar Association offers Judge Kavanaugh high ratings.  A consensus of his peers, involving 120 interviews and contacts with 500 people, rates Kavanaugh as “well qualified” for the SCOTUS.

Once more speaking about how the Congress doesn’t want to do its job, or the manner in which it passes off its own responsibility to others, how well does it sit with you that Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have relied on the testimony of a dangerously psychotic/delusional female and a convicted felon to help them decide whether or not to support the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.  That isn’t all … they also invited a 13-year old child who suffers with asthma who warned the senators that Kavanaugh wasn’t friends with the environment. 

Gad … we must be living in interesting times.

Ford caught in major lie, building permit in 2008 not 2012 for “two doors”

 

We ended up with precious few moments of any real interrogation by the “prosecutor” that the GOP hauled in for the questioning of Ford. The few claims she did make could easily be dismissed. The “fear of flying” being a case in point.

Lying to Congress is in fact a criminal matter. Clearly her statement about flying was a lie as was pointed out, she flew all over the world. The matter of her therapist notes. Did she show the Washington Post the actual notes or were they her oral representations? She didn’t know and this was only a few weeks ago? Her unwillingness to present the therapists notes to the committee. Then we had the so-called “lie detector” test and the unwillingness to acknowledge if any recordings were taken as well as other issues with it.

But the most compelling lie and the one that should clearly have her fined and jailed and totally discredited was this one:

 

Christine Blasey Ford told the US Senate Judiciary Committee that the memories of Brett Kavanaugh “first came up” when she went into counseling in 2012. In May 2012 Ford and her husband argued over her desire to add “a second front door” to their home. Ford told the committee on Thursday the desire for a second door was because Brett Kavanaugh made her “claustrophobic.”

 

As Paul Sperry reported on Thursday night. The Palo Alto building permits were issued to Ford and her husband in 2008 — NOT 2012.

Paul Sperry: Palo Alto bldg permit records raise questions about Ford’s testimony she completed an “extensive remodel” of home in 2012 & that this was seminal event that led her down path to coming out against Kavanaugh b/c she needed to add an escape door. Permit was issued in 2008.

 

 

The worst part of the hearing? Watching what appeared to be the Kavanaugh appointment slipping away by the GOP failure to intervene with the absurd non participation in the process.

Was I the only one that noticed the disbelief in Kavanaugh at the beginning of his questioning? Apparently abandoned by the GOP, the “prosecutor” looked to be the interrogator in chief?

So now it looked like he was going to be the one on trial after the soft glove treatment of Ford.

First having him “study” a sheet of paper defining what sexual behavior was? He would be permitted from time to time to refer back to it. Apparently if he got “confused” it seems as to what it was. Including in the definition was a sexual “grinding of the genitals” of sorts? Lordy I’m thinking, here comes another coke can moment.

After three of four turns of Dem attacks and her circling back around, the GOP woke up from their slumber. Thanks in no small part to Lindsay Graham.

I will add why wasn’t Ford’s yearbook explored? After all, Kavanaugh’s half of his testimony was about his yearbook.

 

1982 was a particularly wild year and Scribe 82 [that year’s yearbook at her school Holton-Arms] published multiple pictures of minors drinking heavily, beer cans stacked up, liquor repeatedly glorified, “boys, beer and “the ‘Zoo’ atmosphere”.

The Kavanaugh pawing supposedly happened in 1982, during the summer after her sophomore year…

10th grade seems to have been a ritual initiation into the “Holton party scene”. Another sophomore girl threw multiple all night benders, the highlight of which featured a male erotic dancer in gold g-string…

1982 was a particularly wild year and Scribe 82 [that year’s yearbook at her school Holton-Arms] published multiple pictures of minors drinking heavily, beer cans stacked up, liquor repeatedly glorified, “boys, beer and “the ‘Zoo’ atmosphere”.

“Lastly one cannot fail to mention the climax of the junior social scene, the party. Striving to extend our educational experience beyond the confines of the classroom, we played such intellectually stimulating games as Quarters, Mexican Dice and everyone’s favorite, Pass-Out, which usually resulted from the aforementioned two.”

The caption on the right side of the image mocks the faculty and parents, “Come on, you’re really too young to drink.”

 

In conclusion, I hope and pray Kavanaugh receives confirmation. He deserves it. Full stop.

As for the GOP? This comes to mind, “Get out of the old road if you can’t lend a hand, cause the times they are a changing.”
