Kavanaugh: ‘I Will Not be Intimidated Into Withdrawing’

Kavanaugh: ‘I Will Not be Intimidated Into Withdrawing’

“The last-minute character assassination will not succeed.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2QThtYGyCA

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein that he will not withdraw. He wrote:

These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination—if allowed to succeed—will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service.

As I told the Committee during my hearing, a federal judge must be independent, not swayed by public or political pressure. That is the kind of judge I will always be. I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last-minute character assassination will not succeed.

The letter comes a day after former Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez accused him of sexual assault when they were freshmen.

It’s the second accusation against Kavanaugh. The first came from Christine Blasey Ford from when they were teenagers. She is scheduled to speak in front of the Senate on Thursday.

Kavanaugh addressed the accusations:

Only after that exhaustive process was complete did I learn, through the news media, about a 36-year-old allegation from high school that had been asserted months earlier and withheld from me throughout the hearing process. First it was an anonymous allegation that I categorically and unequivocally denied. Soon after the accuser was identified, I repeated my denial on the record and made clear that I wished to appear before the Committee. I then repeated my denial to Committee investigators—under criminal penalties for false statements. All of the witnesses identified by Dr. Ford as being present at the party she describes are on the record to the Committee saying they have no recollection of any such party happening. I asked to testify before the Committee again under oath as soon as possible, so that both Dr. Ford and I could both be heard. I thank Chairman Grassley for scheduling that hearing for Thursday.

Last night, another false and uncorroborated accusation from 35 years ago was published. Once again, those alleged to have been witnesses to the event deny it ever happened. There is now a frenzy to come up with something—anything—that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring.

The New York Times buried two important details in its article about the Kavanaugh hearing:

The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.

Even The New Yorker article about Ramirez has flimsy evidence. Karol Markowicz from The New York Post has an excellent thread on the article:

Ramirez herself admitted that she has “significant gaps” in her memories and reluctant to name Kavanaugh as the man who shoved his penis in her face. She only came to the conclusion after she met with her attorney and recovered suppressed memories.

Those The New Yorker contacted that should know about the party and the incident denied knowledge of it:

In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and three other classmates, Dino Ewing, Louisa Garry, and Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: “We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett’s Supreme Court nomination was pending. Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this.”

The former friend who was married to the male classmate alleged to be involved, and who signed the statement said of Ramirez, “This is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.” She said she hadn’t spoken with Ramirez for about ten years, but that the two women had been close all through college, and Kavanaugh had remained part of what she called their “larger social circle.” In an initial conversation with The New Yorker, she suggested that Ramirez may have been politically motivated. Later, she said that she did not know if this was the case.

The White House and President Donald Trump have reiterated support for Kavanaugh. From Politico:

“For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and — never mentioned it, all of a sudden it happens — in my opinion, it’s totally political. It’s totally political,” Trump said. “There’s a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything.”

“Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person, and I am with him all the way,” Trump added.

Who knows how Thursday’s hearing will go. Ford’s story has fallen apart as four of the alleged witnesses have denied knowing about the party and allegations against Kavanaugh. One of the witnesses is a lifelong friend of Ford and she said she doesn’t even know Kavanaugh.

Terrific news.

What are the chances Jeff Flake goes in for a cajones transplant surgery this week?

What happened with the scandal of Feinstein’s ‘assistant’ of 20 years being discovered to be a Chi Com spy????

https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2018/08/06/difis-driver-was-a-chicom-spy-for-20-years/

Oh. Yeah: Sessions.

Who’s worse: the Chi Comm spy or Sessions, who enables the likes of him?

Sessions.

What about the rest of Feinstein’s grotesque and ongoing corruption??

“Is Dianne Feinstein the Most Corrupt Senator in the United States?”
https://pjmedia.com/michaelledeen/difi-and-the-red-chinese/

Oh. Yeah – Sessions.

The guy should be indicted.

    Come on, man — Feinstein’s story involves national security and espionage…YAWN…

    We’ve got a salacious SEX allegation on our hands…filled with tales of drunken boys and girls, boozy frat parties, a dildo, and/or, a free-roaming penis.

    Priorities, man!

Reality check- Ramirez claim

This occurred in a college dorm with 6-10-15 people present. Some one ran down the hall yelling that BK stuck his penis in her face. Does this sound like it was a secret?
Does anyone believe that word would not have spread like wildfire?

I lived in a college dorm for 2 years in the mid 70’s. There is absolutely 100% probability that word of such an event would have made it to at least one RA and the head RA within a couple of days.

No discipline, No RA reports – Get real.

Sonia: Do you think he’ll make it through?

Elena: Well, if all these stories are true, I hope so.

While we’re at it, Kavanaugh should also clear himself of being present during the Duke Lacrosse party. I hope he also has an ATM receipt for that night to prove he’s not guilty of that accusation.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Andy. | September 24, 2018 at 3:50 pm

    I’m not sure, but a rumor I just made up says he has a receipt for a cab ride stamped around the time Marlyn Monroe died.

I hope Clarence Thomas has his RV parked in the Kavanaugh driveway. That would be super…

At last …someone with a spine!!!! It’s Kavanaugh!

I will harken back to a different time: “Look, there is Jackson standing like a stonewall, rally behind the Virginians!”

No wonder the Left and flakes fear him.

    oldgoat36 in reply to alaskabob. | September 24, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    This is what everyone should want in a SCOTUS Justice, fearless to state the case, standing up for the ruling based on the law, and independent from political and social pressures. While no one lives in a vacuum, Kavanaugh certainly seems like one who could put aside his personal belief even if it conflicted with the law. Yet be able to stand up when he decides on an issue and give the causes for his stand.

    Instead the left want those who will pervert justice and the law to push ideology. That isn’t “winning”. It is divisive and fails to settle anything.

    Matt_SE in reply to alaskabob. | September 24, 2018 at 6:22 pm

    Public office is like a gate. Once you’re on the other side, it’s extremely difficult to undo it. That’s why Democrats are fighting so hard to ensure Kavanaugh isn’t confirmed.

Grassley’s utter incompetence and weakness are the cause of this mess.

Democrats have behaved like toddlers throwing a tantrum. For weeks they made speeches about how they were already going to vote ‘no’, and yet were allowed to demand MILLIONS of documents and THOUSANDS of questions that are irrelevant to the proceedings (more than all previous SC nominees COMBINED), they were allowed to disrupt the hearings as literally dozens of protesters were arrested, they were allowed to outright lie about the nominee and his answers, and finally have intentionally withheld unbeliavably laughable allegations until after the hearing and demanded delays.

And rather than hold them accountable for their disgusting behavior, Grassley has REWARDED it at every turn by giving them exactly what they demanded.

Feinstein should have been censured and thrown off the committee. Instead Grassley has curled up into the fetal position and given them weeks of delay.

Regardless of how this ends Grassley should be given an ultimatum – resign from the committee or be publicly replaced.

    guyjones in reply to Olinser. | September 24, 2018 at 3:40 pm

    I share your frustration. But, in fairness to Grassley, he is undermined by the unfortunate realities of his caucus, which limit his strategic options. I refer to the three Stooges — Collins, Flake and Murkowski. I had mentioned this, on another LI thread.

    Collins and Flake made clear that they wouldn’t vote on Kavanaugh until the “victim” had been heard by the Committee, in whatever forum or fashion. Sure, a legitimate argument can be made that Grassley could have done more to twist Collins’ and Flake’s arms, but, they seemed pretty adamant, on this score.

    If Grassley could have been confident that his caucus would stick together and didn’t have to worry about keeping the three Stooges in the fold, I’d like to think that he would have proceeded directly to a Committee vote the minute that it was revealed that duplicitous Feinstein had sat on this allegation for one month (or, longer) and had concealed its existence from the Committee, while Kavanaugh was under oath, only to spring it as a transparently desperate, last-minute kamikaze slander attack. Which procedural posture would have totally fair and justified, as a response to a transparently dishonest and self-serving political stunt.

      Matt_SE in reply to guyjones. | September 24, 2018 at 6:25 pm

      My problem is that the voters aren’t really clear what’s happening. Is Flake the person screwing this up? Is Corker? Is Collins?
      Or is it someone in leadership, like Grassley or McConnell?

      It could be any of 6 people, or any combination thereof.

      I would dearly like to see some senior Senator come forward and tell us who is screwing this up for us.

        Olinser in reply to Matt_SE. | September 24, 2018 at 7:48 pm

        Yes. People are just GUESSING.

        Grassley is the one that’s supposed to be in charge.

        This farce has gone on for too long already. If one of the RINO pieces of shit like Flake or Collins are the ones holding this up, then put it to a vote and FORCE THEM to publicly defend it.

    Barry in reply to Olinser. | September 24, 2018 at 5:01 pm

    “Grassley’s utter incompetence and weakness are the cause of this mess.”

    While Grassley is far from perfect, he has to deal with the hand he has. It is the perfidy of the GOPe that continues to give us the likes of Collins, Flake, McCain, Murkowski, Corker, etc that is to blame.

    I would actually argue that Grassley has been giving the Dems a shovel, and they’ve been obliging him by digging the absolute *deepest* hole possible.

    I think they’ve hit lava.

“There’s a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate for anything.”

Oh, I don’t know, Teddy Roosevelt, campaigning as the Progressive Party candidate in 1912 and being shot through his folded-up speech, was probably worse.

Stand strong. Stand your ground.

Warlock trials are unconstitutional.

Feinstein seems to want to return us to a different time and place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberum_veto .

    I wonder if she has the guts to even look him in the face during questioning.
    She’s evil enough that she might, but I’d love to see her squirm.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to lc. | September 24, 2018 at 8:30 pm

      Of course she does and will. For something like this to bother someone they have to have an ethical and moral center, most leftist lack such a center.

Did Maryland ever amend the sexual assault laws to remove SOL? Has it always been that way? They amended them in 2017 to not require the victim to fight tooth and nail at time of the assault.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to alaskabob. | September 24, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    If the SOL was removed after the time Ford alleges this all took place, does the lack of SOL still apply?

      As a general rule, extending the Statute of limitations after the expiration would be an ex post facto law – so the answer is no.

      A similar case was the sexual predator registration law, whereby sexual predators were required to register with local law enforcement. Various states attempted to have the new laws apply to convicted predators who had completed the sentences. SC held (as I recall) that it was a retroactive law/ex post facto and therefore unconstitutional ( Thomas wrote the opinion as I recall – My apologies since I dont have time to look up the actual case)

    Could happen. That’s why it’s important to demonstrate innocence.

    Gremlin1974 in reply to Tiki. | September 24, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    Flake is a no vote and everyone knows it. He will vote no just to spite Trump. So what McConnell is hoping for is to get Collins and Murcowski on board so that he has 50 then his 1 with Pence. At that point there are about 3 red state dems up for re-election that will vote yes so their opposition can’t use the no vote against them in campaign ads.

Once he’s seated, maybe he can help overturn the 17th amendment.

Ask yourself, did your mother raise you to be a coward? With yoiur shield or on it. I didn’t say it here but I predicted that Kavanaugy wouldn’t withdraw because what would that say to his daughters.

Calling it now. He will be confirmed

I am sorry for one thing, however. This confirmation hearing is giving him knowledge of evil, a knowledge that I’d rather he did not apply too strongly in his future considerations of the people and issues that come before him.

    ecreegan in reply to Valerie. | September 24, 2018 at 4:53 pm

    Disagree 100%. I’m sorry for the people suffering, but the confirmation hearing is our best guarantee that Kavanaugh will ‘grow in office’ like Justice Thomas, not like Justice Kennedy.

    RodFC in reply to Valerie. | September 24, 2018 at 7:27 pm

    Strange I was thinking of other lines from that poem:


    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools

There are only two people with any balls in this, Trump and Ksvanaugh. The rest of the Republicans, especially Flake, Collins and Murkowski, are simply cowards. This letter is quite amazing when compared to Ford’s fifth-grade level (“me and my friend went to the party!”) scrawl. Plus he is going to be interviewed tonight on Fox. He is the only one, apparently, who knows how to deal with these smears.

Judge Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley, will be interviewed this evening at 7:00 pm by Martha McCallum — Fox News.

    I have seen some clips of this, and I am appalled that a grown man has to describe his sexual history to be considered for the Supreme Court.

    I’m going to need an FBI investigation on every man in Congress who showed his penis to a woman in college. Let’s go.

      Joe in Ocean View in reply to hrhdhd. | September 24, 2018 at 7:38 pm

      Unless you intend to willfully discriminate, you should insist on a complete FBI investigation of every man in Congress who ever exposed his penis to a woman – OR TO A MAN – in college, before college, or ever since. And while we’re at it, can’t we require all women sitting in the Senate and the House to advise America as to whom they’ve exposed themselves to, at any point whatsoever in their lives, whether man or woman. Under penalty of perjury. I think we’re good now. Let’s go.

If we brought back the Scold’s bridle…how many Congresswomen would be wearing one right now?

Mark Steyn made an interesting point:

The same people who are telling us that teenage girls should learn to get over it should they happen to see the exposed penis of a transitioning male in the gym locker room are the same ones who think that Ms. Ramirez was permanently scarred from being in the proximity an exposed penis her freshman year at Yale.

hat tip – patterico pontifications

Interesting post from Ace:

Hirono asked Kavanaugh, out of the blue and with no underlying predicate, if he had ever touched someone in an unwanted way, back on September 5th, back before the Democrats began leaking information about this accuser on her own personal No-Fly List.

Asked why she’d asked those questions of Kavanaugh, she claimed, falsely, that they were standard questions she asked of ever would-be Justice.

That’s a lie; she didn’t ask them of Gorsuch.

So why did she ask them? And how many people are part of this “strategy”?

https://twitter.com/phillyrich1/status/1044246068349874178

I continue to be impressed with Kavanaugh’s mettle, and after the gauntlet he’s had to run I assume he’ll be even more conservative than ever.
However, the Democrats know this and Kavanaugh’s confirmation won’t hinge upon him giving up.

To repeat, we should be focusing on the weak points in our line: Flake, Corker, and Collins.

    Arminius in reply to Matt_SE. | September 24, 2018 at 7:13 pm

    First, I misspelled curious. Second, how do I look into a mother’s eyes and tell her I didn’t do every g+d damned thing before the ship turned turtle and make sure her child didn’t make it out alive.

    Am I clear?

    Call them and let them know you support Kavanaugh.
    This is a dangerous political ploy the left is playing that will continue if not stopped now.

The New York Times rode its “Believe the survivor” ideology proudly and relentlessly throughout its coverage of the Duke Lacrosse case. It did cover Nifong’s disbarment, but nowhere is there any evidence that it ever took a hard look at it its own newsroom culture with the intent of discovrering, “How could we have gotten the story so wrong?”

And so, too, with Duke’s “Gang of 88.” The “Gang” (Group, if you wish to be more polite) never did any real examination of how they could have been so wrong either. Nor did the Duke University community apparently ever feel the need to wonder how so many of their supposedly erudite faculty could so easily have turned themselves into a baying, mindless mob.

So, here we are again- except this time, there can be no declaration of innocence, for there’s no court of law to judge (nor, conveniently, any way to prove the charges false). I wouldn’t, therefore, put much hope into the possibility that some of those demanding we “believe the women” even sans evidence will ever have second thoughts about their public behaviors. Let alone look in a mirror someday and be astonished to see the ghost of Joe McCarthy staring back at them.

    Well put. Society is rearing a generation of thugs – women screeching for acceptance of unsubstantiated charges, men for masking their faces and going out to physically intimidate political opponents. This will not trurn out well.

This is interesting… Planned Parenthood ad from back in 2012. This smear job has been in the works a long time…

The left in this country has adopted the tactics of hyenas in battle: create chaos and exploit it.

But lions usually kill hyenas.

Be lions, and save our nation from this coup attempt. Then prosecute.

Btw: imagine Roberts undergoing this? He’d be gone in 60 seconds. Unlike the unfaithful Roberts, we know Kavanaugh won’t be intimidated in his votes as a Justice.

Agreed. I keep asking how far we are willing to go to preserve Liberty. Would we commit war crimes, if there was no other choice to avoid becoming enslaved to an authoritarian marxist state? Or would we mutter “that’s not who we are” platitudes as our family, friends and neighbors are corralled into cattle cars for the labor camps?

If we aren’t willing to go to any length to defend

Fucking Verizon wireless…

If we aren’t willing to go to any length to defend Liberty, do we really deserve to be free?

I keep going back to Solzhenitsyn:

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterwards “

    CincyJan in reply to Fen. | September 24, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    It chills the blood to think we are approaching such a state of affairs here in America. But the point is clear: beat the thugs back while we can or we will be overwhelmed.

We didn’t love freedom enough.

    You’d have to be pretty drunk or pretty nuts to compare us to subjects of the Soviet Union.

      Reading comprehension. Again.

      Your poor clients.

      Subjects of the Soviet Union had a mass media as honest as the one we have. While we still maintain some of our freedom it is slipping every week. One can easily see a future…

      Well, think Detroit. Yea, they can leave, no wall. Otherwise not so different.

1. Corbin to Murkowski. “Nice seniority. You want to keep it?” There
is a reason he is whip.
2. Flake is a protege of Kyl. Kyl is a pal of BK. So are a lot of
Flake’s associate. Flake is a Mormon. Romney would have nominate
Kavanaugh. So BK is generally acceptable to him. Opposing BK will
piss of his “network” which I’m sure he wants to keep in contact
with.
3. Collins is in the Senate for a reason if she was not in the Senate
it would be a Democrat and we would be much worse off. So don’t
whine about what she is. Understand where she is coming from. No
you don’t have to agree with it, but you do have to have some
hint.

That being said she was on board before the accusations. If she
wasn’t the accusations would never have come out. She generally
has believed BK, but wanted to hear from CBF first. She proposed
that lawyers question each first at a hearing. Ford basically blew
her idea off.

That being said we really haven’t heard much from much since the
initial claims. Not much this weekend except for Flake who said he
might vote present at the committee vote. So what! Do you think it
matters if the committee vote is 11-10 or 10-10? I don’t care what
the committee votes. I don’t care what the Senate votes as long as
there are 50 votes for BK at the end.

Now that that has been said let me make a big statement. Something
I hope that some of the editors take up.

I hated McCain with a passion. I hope one day to have enough money
to buy a curly haired wig, Hobbit clothes, Hobbit feet, a video
camera. Then go to Arizona put that stuff on and record myself
dancing on his grave. Then put that video up on youtube entitled
“Revenge of the Hobbit”.

He called us hobbits, and when he did he didn’t just mean Trump
supporters but anyone who didn’t kiss his ass and agree that he was
the greatest republican ever. Hell he thought we should hold our
noses and vote for him. To put it simply, John McCain didn’t
respect Republican voters.

That being said, in this case I have not seen any disrespect from
republican senators here. When OJ was accused no one wanted to
believe it. ( I remember Murphy Brown had a episode called “Where
have you gone, Joe Dimaggio” which deal with the disbelief. ) You
could have floored me when I heard Bill Cosby was a rapist. There
are lots of other examples. When the CBF accusations I was
hoping it wasn’t true, but I couldn’t be certain. These
Senators couldn’t be much different.

It entire reasonable that we expect Republican Senators to
respect us
That they not blow off out concerns, that they not
lie to us, that they not promise to do one thing and then do
another.

But at the same time if we expect them to respect us, we should
be ready to respect them
. They have their constituencies that
they have to answer to, and that they should respect. Keep in mind
that if they didn’t do this there would instead be some democrat in
their seat and we wouldn’t have any chance of their vote.

    A GoFundMe listing can make this dream come true. I’d even contribute. I wouldn’t contribute a lot. But I’d contribute a little.

      I’m afraid there’d be a line.

      I’m going to wuss out a little bit. I’m stuck living in the Peoples Republic of Chicago. I would have to remain anonymous. So that’s out. I’m kind of hoping to wiun the lottery. But there might be another way… hmm. let me see.

      My initial plan was to get a bunch of us together to do a group dance.
      Maybe a sort of viral competition, like a lot of those stupid things on the internet. People visit the grave and record themselves as hobbits.

      Maybe I could visit a grave here, put a sash saying , “John McCain”
      but that would disrespect the other persons grave and I don’t want to do that. Let me think about it.

    Right after the elections Grassley should move to censure Feinstein. Punishment, removal from all seniority positions ion committees. I would want removal from the Senate, but Kookyfornians would put in someone worse ( sorry Leslie).

Having sat through an attempted murder trial for a woman with repressed memories that were restored through hypnosis, I’m not impressed by these women.

Yes, we found the guy guilty.

Allow me to make a piont. Look at this from the perspective of a judge on the bench. Any bench. They are all terrified. If this is allowed to prevail all of them are subject to the same treatment whether or not they are democrats or republicans. If he goes down why not any of the rest? If any judges read this I would wonder what they think.

Latest, if it happens the republicans have gotten a rape prosecutor to do the questioning.

Wow, what happened to Lindsey Grahnam? He actually sounds good in his defense of Judge Kavanaugh

    Lady Lindsey’s boyfriend McCain released his mortal coil, so he now has to be butch to take care of himself.

    You finally paid attention. I’ve been watching him in hearings for years. He stopped the closing of Gitmo cold, as well as the attempts by the Obama administration to try foreign warfighter in US civilian courts. He embarrassed the living daylights out of Eric Holder. He was a thorn in the side of the lawless Obama administration, which is probably why so many sock puppets called him a RINO.

The GOP should retaliate in every possible way, no matter how petty, across all Senate business. From ‘reassigning parking spaces, mandatory construction in all Democrat offices, zero bipartisan sponsorship of bills, blanket denial of all Democrat requests of Committee Chairmen to revise and extend remarks, break for consultation. Every Democrat staffer investigated into bankruptcy by FBI, IRS, DHS. etc. And watch those steps they sure are slippery.

But watch, instead they will be best buddies, laughing and joking with the Feinsteins and Schumers like none of this ever happened.

To preserve the “comity” of the institution.

    “The GOP should…”

    Yes, they should, but as you say they will not. The institution was destroyed years ago. It suffered a slow decline, accelerated under Clinton, and has turned into a full comity comedy now.

    Not petty, but “Big League”! Got a natural disaster in a state with , say a Senator Schumer or Feinstein? Too bad we’ve a deficit to consider. Need to give a lucrative government contract? Find a red state company. Repubs need to start playing hardball but lack the cajone’s to do so

Someone has set up a gofundme account for Kavanaugh.

Someone please tell me there is an innocent explanation of the Renate alumni thing. Even if he was just “claimng” a conquest without actual making one it seems bad.
