The Bludgeoning of Kavanaugh

This event has really upset me. I can not let it go. Neither can the Judge or his family. Neither can the nation.

I normally post at 4:30 Central Time -6GMT. That's long before the vote on Saturday. It appears that on Friday afternoon the vote will be for confirmation, but...yes or no, I will not be happy. I doubt you will be happy either.

Sixty-nine percent of all voters—not just Republicans—believe “the Senate confirmation hearings . . . have been a national disgrace.” Seventy-five percent of voters agree Sen. Dianne Feinstein should “have immediately turned over the letter from Christine Blasey Ford” rather than sit on it for six weeks until it was leaked in the media.

  1. I think Senators Feinstein and Coons and Representative Waters are doing are doing a wonderful job of insuring an increase in Republican seats in the Senate and House come November. Just my guess... My two Senators, Carper and Coons, are prime examples of the Dems inclusiveness and broad mindedness - they both declared a "no" vote for Kavanaugh long before any hearings were held and before Dr. Ford's accusations surfaced - the un-admitted reason was of course that he was a Trump nominee.

    Have you noticed we have not heard much from Waters in the past few weeks? She got so crazy that the Dems leadership must have locked her away somewhere.

    1. I have a long list of representatives and senators I would like to horse whip. Not all are Dem's. I don't anyone beat Chuck Schumer who said 23 minutes after the nomination was made that he would oppose it with all his will. That was not a knee jerk remark. It's been assumed that Kavanaugh would be nominated for some time and he has a paper trail that shows he follows the law. Not a desirable trait to someone like Schumer.

      Best remarks by anyone were made by Lindsay Graham. I have never been a fan of his, but that five minutes made me pay attention to him.

      What did you think of the women's remarks in the link?

    2. My opinion only: Assuming that a SCOTUS nominee is already a sitting Federal judge, as most of them are, the most important question and criteria for confirmation should be: how many cases tried by them have had their decisions upheld by the SCOTUS? Any judge who was in the majority (or the sole judge rendering a decision)while in the lower courts with a batting average above 500 should be confirmed without much debate regardless of party. If more than 50% of your opinions were overturned you should not even be considered as a nominee.

      The women who were part of the Tweet storm are more familiar to me than the experiences of Dr. Ford and are reminiscent of my college experiences in the mid-70's. I lived in a co-ed dorm and had ample opportunity to observe drunk women and their behaviors on a weekly basis - there was a lot of sex in the dorm, but I cannot recall any problems.

      I guess Dr. Ford pockets her million dollars from those go fund me pages and goes back to teaching at her college. I am pretty sure that her attorneys will be compensated quietly by the DNC, so she does not need to worry about that. She "sanitized" her social media pages before she came out "anonymously"; I wonder if she will not slip up in some future posts......

    3. I think his appeal court decisions were upheld by the Supremes 12 of 13 times.

      Did you see Shelia Lee Jackson slipping one of the good doctors attorneys an envelope at the end of the hearings? He looked uncomfortable and slipped it in his suit pocket.

      I have a real fear that one of the unhinged will do violence to one of the conservative judges or their family. Rand Paul was attacked in his front yard and Steve Scalise was shot playing baseball.

    4. "...upheld by the Supremes 12 of 13 times." That would be an average of .923 - confirm and immediately move along REGARDLESS of party affiliation.

      That sort of record blows the Dems argument out of the water that he would tilt the Court to the right, blah, blah, blah...... He has a track record which shows the Supremes agreed with his decisions 92% of the time with the swing vote (Kennedy)in place. I find it ludicrous to believe that once seated he would magically change his judicial outlook and go super hard right.

      Of course, he does not fulfill the Dems wet dream of getting another Ruth Bader Ginsberg onto the Court, but what do they expect from a Republican President?

  2. Those remarks fall on deaf ears. The democratic liberals would ignore them or question their veracity at best. Those remarks run counter to their purpose, therefore they are invalid.

    Jim C. I hope you’re correct about winning seats, but keep in mind the areas these people represent. All liberal strongholds filled with dependents on social welfare policies. Maxine Waters should have been incarcerated years ago, but she’s a heroine to the progressive braindead.

    Bogey. Lindsay Graham has been accused of political grandstanding during these hearings. Grandstanding for what? He’s not running for President unlike black Spartacus, Mt. Booker, the poor mans version of the Rock, who has his sights on the Oval Office. Perhaps he’ll stage the next schmere campaign like he did the rescue of a child from a burning building in Newark, a city he did crap for.

    This whole fiasco was disturbing. It’s a pure divide now in this country, caused by a party still crying like spoiled children over the loss of an election.

    Kavanaugh. DILLY DILLY! 🍺🍺🍺
