Are you ready for Kavanaugh-ageddon?

Are you ready for Kavanaugh-ageddon?

Expect high dudgeon and harumphs from Democrat Senators before, during and after the confirmation hearings.

We’re all gonna die! Or should I say, those of us who didn’t already die from the end of net neutrality or from the Trump tax cuts are GONNA DIE!

Because Brett Kavanaugh.

His confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee start on Tuesday, September 4, and based on my inbox, the collective freakout is ramping up. Here are two samples:

From Demand Justice:

Democratic Senators Must Not Approach This Sham Hearing as Business As Usual

Republicans have turned the entire process of filling a Supreme Court vacancy into a sham. Just by attending this week’s hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, Democratic senators are lending legitimacy to a charade. If they insist on going, Democrats must at least reject the courtesies and customs that typically mark these hearings. Democrats cannot approach these hearings as business as usual when this process is so clearly not on-the-level and when so much is at stake with this nomination.

Republicans’ Rush To Hold These Hearings—Without Insisting on Obtaining Kavanaugh’s Full Records—Makes This Process Illegitimate.

From The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights:

There will be a press call at 8:15 AM ET to discuss what’s at stake with the Kavanaugh nomination, and then at 11:30 AM ET, one hundred women leaders from progressive non-profit organizations will join Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for a vigil in the Hart Senate Office Building Atrium. Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights will be particpating in both events.

On Tuesday, Sept 4, before Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings begin, Senator Gillibrand will join leading advocacy groups and storytellers on a press call to outline what’s at stake with Kavanaugh’s nomination. Speakers will call attention to the fact that Brett Kavanaugh will not only work to end Roe and criminalize abortion, but also rule to gut health care, LGBTQ rights, voting rights, disability rights, environmental protections, workers’ rights, and immigrant rights.

Senators now hold the keys to the fundamental freedoms, healthcare, and lives of millions of people in their hands with this vote. If the Senate votes to confirm Kavanaugh, in addition to gutting Roe, criminalizing abortion, and ripping away our healthcare, he will place the president above the law, remove vital checks and balances on a runaway administration, and cement into place the worst of Donald Trump’s policies for generations to come. Nothing less that the future of our democracy hangs in the balance.

DRAMA, THERE WILL BE DRAMA

You know who will save the liberals from being owned? MADDOW!

Expect disruptions of the hearings. Expect high dudgeon and harumphs from Democrat Senators.

Expect Kavanaugh to clear the Judiciary Committee on a party line vote, and to be confirmed on a party line vote.

Elections have consequences….

We won so shut up already.

BTW, whatever happened to the term “loyal opposition???

When absolutely everything is dialled up to 11, then it loses its effect.

Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing was highly-entertaining. In large part because of the Dumb-o-crats’ predictable, grandstanding histrionics, infantile hostility and incivility and spectacular legal ignorance, which postures are all as predictable as the day is long.

But, also, because it was superb fun to watch the unflappable Gorsuch ignore the slings and arrows, while his wife sat behind him, smiling beatifically throughout the proceedings, no matter what barbs were being hurled at her husband, at a given moment. It was during these hearings that it occurred to me that Gorsuch would make a superb George Bailey, if a sequel to, or, a remake of, “It’s a Wonderful Life” is ever made.

We know full-well that the Dumbs are now totally unabashed in viewing the federal courts as a super-legislature whose sole purpose is to rubber-stamp Leftist policy aims which are stymied at the legislative level. The concepts of judicial modesty and restraint, and, of judges reaching legal results that are at odds with their personal political views and policy preferences, are totally alien to Leftists.

I expect Kavanaugh to be similarly nonplussed, despite the Dumbs’ idiotic and transparently desperate efforts to cast him as Satan incarnate.

But, I promise that I will throw a shoe at the screen, if a Dumb-o-crat Senator asks Kavanaugh whether he considers Roe v. Wade to constitute an unassailable “super-precedent.”

It took a President who isn’t even a career Republican to wake up the Somnolent Party. That’s disgraceful. If the Bushes hadn’t been such weenies, we could have had a dynamite show like this years ago.

Elections have consequences. So does leadership.

Democrats die a thousand deaths,….

42,000 pages? Not enough time to read? Let’s just confirm him and see what’s inside. (Thanks, Nancy.)

So, what foul arcana did Maddow reveal last night?

I used to have a great deal of respect for Ron Perlman as an actor, but he’s really choosing to go full retard.

    I thought the same thing when I saw that tweet. I loved Sons of Anarchy and thought he was great in it (yeah, I know, he’s done other great stuff, but that’s what came to mind when I saw the tweet). He’s not on my personal “no buy” list yet, but he’s working toward it.

      Tom Servo in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | September 4, 2018 at 8:19 am

      He needs to be on a no-buy list, he’s gone even nuttier than Joss Whedon and is just as bad as Michael Moore. And it’s not just that he spouts leftist talking points, it’s that he does so with such complete idiocy. Take this battle – none of them will admit that this situation came about because Harry Reid killed the filibuster for most judges, and then Chuck Schumer caused it to get killed by trying to block a perfectly acceptable nominee who should have been approved unanimously.

      When you act like idiots, you get treated like idiots.

The posturing, preening, and grandstanding is going to be glorious!!!

Before I comment on this, there is something I must say. I will be too busy the next few days to totally address this.
There is a disgusting “commercial” that appeared on your website. It was some kind of embedded video ( which I later discovered was for the youtube delish channel ). It was titled something like `making a “male member” cake` and the description is pretty much accurate.

I took a screen shot and will take more appropriate measures when I get more time.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

    So, you’re saying that the male phallus isn’t worthy of celebration and culinary memorialization?

    Your outrage is as inane as it is overwrought. And, frankly, makes you sound like a sanctimonious, grievance-wallowing Leftist who takes himself way too seriously.

    Lighten up — Life will go easier for you.

      I never saw what he saw, but I do know that many times websites have no very little control over what ads pop up on their websites. I’ve observed when I’m browsing that often the ads will be keyed to topics that Google has noticed that I’ve run a search for. One of their algorithms, I suppose.

        tom_swift in reply to Tom Servo. | September 4, 2018 at 9:04 am

        Of the sites I visit voluntarily, LI is the worst. It was the clickbait ads with photos of repulsive skin diseases and grotesquely fat people right in the middle of the page which finally inspired me to try supplementary adblock software. That software also eliminated the annoying video popup which made the site difficult to read.

Now the big question, in two words.
McCain’s replacement>

Btw. It would be funny if somehow they block his nomination, in November the GOP picks up three or four Senate seats and Trump nominates Amy Comey Barret and they can stop it and argue that somehow we have to have Kavanaugh get a revote.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to RodFC. | September 4, 2018 at 6:57 am

    I’m wondering… would the governor appoint Kelli Ward?

      I’ve heard he hated Kelli Ward. I’m still betting on Senator Cindy, but Gov. Douchy is running for re-election too, and he might be thinking he can’t get away with that one. It’d be funny if he appointed himself, he actually has the legal authority to do that.

        Freddie Sykes in reply to Tom Servo. | September 4, 2018 at 9:01 am

        Former Gov Jan Brewer would be a reasonable choice. She has won a state wide race, has a decent record and may be satisfied to act as a place holder at 73.

        I think that the McCains forfeited any claim on the seat with the show of their ingratitude towards Trump who granted them the honor of a ride on Air Force II for that great defender of Obamacare.

What is the over/under on how many questions the Dems/Progs will ask and how many bloviating speeches will be made instead?

You should have listened to the Rachael Maddow interview. Aside from a lot of stupid bloviating by Maddow, it includes some tapes from an oral argument Kavanaugh presided over.

I don’t see much there, but I can see how it can be spun to create problems.

We should start having National ‘Megedon Parties, like Halloween, but themed for each specific extinction level event.

The Bush/Clinton/Obama Axis Powers strike again.

Hours before Kavanaugh… hearings, Bush lawyer releases 42,000 pages… to Judiciary Committee***
Hours before the start of hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, the lawyer for former president George W. Bush turned over 42,000 pages of documents from the nominee’s service in the Bush White House, angering Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, who issued what is certain to be a futile call to delay the proceedings.

    They looked really hard for Sotomayor’s papers and Kagan’s as well…..but came up empty.How curious. One is a dunce and the other a apparatchik.

      Tom Servo in reply to puhiawa. | September 4, 2018 at 8:37 am

      Can’t blame Bush for this – first, since Kavanaugh worked for the Bush Administration, and since these documents were classified internal documents, by long standing practice the people who work for Bush at his presidential library have custody of these particular documents, and they make the call as to whether they are privileged and must be kept confidential for whatever reason. (current admin has no say) Reviewing documents takes time, that’s been the Dem’s goal, to ask for a paper blizzard that can never be properly reviewed to justify a massive delay.

      But SOMEHOW the Bush review people put a huge amount of work into this, did EXACTLY what Chuck Schumer asked them to do, BEFORE the hearing started, and all Chuck can say is “oh boo hoo, it’s too much paper, I can’t read it all, cuz you didn’t do it fast enough.” Even though they produced these things FASTER than anyone thought possible, and even though Schumer had asked for nearly 1 Billion pages of paper, which every sane person in the world KNEW no one could ever read through.

Increasingly, the Dems are looking more and more like school yard bullies from the Obama reign that, having lost their power base, are now nothing more than whiny children angry that they cannot have their way. Increasingly this political theater is looking more and more like pre-school daycare spats between a bunch of spoiled and self entitled children who know nothing other than their own selfish wants and desires and, if you won’t do what they want, then they will take their toys and go home to brood.

So, basically, they are admitting that a ton of the “rights” and “protections” the liberal courts of the past have forced upon us have no basis in the Constitution. Because all Kavanaugh will add is a straightforward reading of the Constitution. Go figure.

The democrats are not going to read these documents or change their votes because of these documents. The democratic strategy is to delay any confirmation vote until after the elections, in case they can gain a majority in the Senate. The republican strategy is to hold a vote before the election in case they lose their majority.
Kavanaugh’s qualifications don’t matter anymore.

    Tom Servo in reply to Terry T. | September 4, 2018 at 8:45 am

    In all seriousness, qualifications ceased to matter and the process became purely political the day that the Dem’s killed Robert Bork’s nomination for purely political reasons.

    I predict that virtually every question from every Democrat Senator during this hearing will consist of the following: (I believe they are given 6 minutes per question, to keep the hearing moving along) A given senator will pontificate on a subject that he thinks makes him sound good politically for 5 minutes and 45 seconds, and then say “would you vote to take this away from the American People??” and then Kavanaugh will say “As you know, I cannot comment on a case or controversy that may come before the Court, since that would be pre-judging it.”

    We are going to sit for hours and hours of that. Every question will mean nothing. Every answer will mean just as little. The Senate, by it’s political infighting and the viciousness of the left over the last 30 years, has abdicated its “advise and consent” duty. Now all they do is piss and moan.

Mitch McConnell told the Dems, and Harry Reed, that they would be sorry if they used the nuclear option.

“You’ll regret this, and you may regret this a lot sooner than you think.” ~ Mitch McConnell

I’ve never been a McConnell fan but that line is coming back to haunt the Dems and it’s wonderful.

My dream job would be to drive the Karma bus and drive it right into the left side of the Senate.

I feel sorry for the females of the Kavanaugh family: they won’t get to experience up close and personal touch of Joe Bidden at the swearing in ceremony.

Professor Jacobson:
You sure called this one right.
