Senate CONFIRMS Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

Senate CONFIRMS Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

That’s Mr. Justice Kavanaugh, to you

https://www.supremecourt.gov/publicinfo/press/oath/oath_kavanaugh.aspx

Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, 50-48. He has been sworn in, with a ceremonial swearing in likely Monday. He will take the bench Tuesday.

The vote repeatedly was disrupted by screams from protesters in the gallery.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED about what is going to happen here IF Kavanaugh is confirmed: Fireworks and Loud Music – Wear eye and ear protection.

FIREWORKS are over. Was it as good for you as it was for me?

Here’s a couple of screenshots, will try to upload video for those who missed it.

ADDED – Video. Not the greatest quality, my good video camera had a problem so this is from my phone, just small clips from three of the songs.

Here is the now obligatory Victory Dance [if you are sensitive to strobe lights, don’t click]

OK.
I am here.

have i missed anything?

LoneStarWhacko | October 6, 2018 at 3:14 pm

I figure an assassination attempt. Logical progression of events. Here’s the problem….the Secret Service and the DOJ are heavily politicized. No protection there.

Gee, I thought they’d have more people than that there! No worries, the media will make a few additions

Must be the Texas/ OU game!

OK place your bets place your bets!!!!!

Democrats demand a delay – GUARANTEED NO BETS ACCEPTED

Cory Booker cries – 3-1

Chuck Schumer whines about ‘norms’ – 2-1

Flake makes a grand speech about ‘principles’ and votes against Kavanaugh to try and fuck Trump one last time – 5-1

Lindsey Graham makes another Monty Python reference – 10-1

Manchin tries to act like he’s being ‘courageous’ and ‘moderate’ in coming out only after his vote didn’t matter anymore – 2-1

Murkowski makes another speech after realizing both Republicans and Democrats think her last one was bullshit – 2-1

Welp, I think we can kiss that whole “increased civility” thing good-bye. Chuck Shumer has gone all-in for insanity; I shudder to think what the next nomination is going to be like.

    RodFC in reply to Anonamom. | October 6, 2018 at 3:47 pm

    Prediction in the next few weeks the SCOTUS building will have to be evacuated several times due to bomb threats.

    The last time RGB will suffer a fatal heart attack.

    Olinser in reply to Anonamom. | October 6, 2018 at 3:48 pm

    Anytime a Democrat calls for civility they’re really saying, ‘shut up and stop fighting back’.

    The ‘civil’ course in Schumer and the Democrat’s warped minds would have been meekly withdrawing after the Democrat smear campaign.

anyone know where Brett will be holding his victory kegger?

Colonel Travis | October 6, 2018 at 3:40 pm

Holy crap. Do we have to listen to nearly 100 Susan Collins-length speeches before the vote?

    Good heavens no! That’s what the mute button is for. Plus I can’t read lips. So I just watch to see the expression on their faces. It reminds me of the news media on election night after they learned Trump won the electoral votes. It’s all gravy.

    Remember the Alamo!

Sadly I can’t hear the ayes and nayes.

Listening to the incessant histrionic interruptions and screaming by Dumb-o-crat zealots, it occurs to me that the Dumb-o-crats and their Party resemble nothing so much as perpetual infants, lashing out in petulance, anger, threats and violence, when they don’t get their way.

There can be no doubt that the Dumb-o-crats are the party of unabashed and transparent totalitarianism, their supporters, are jackbooted, goose-stepping thugs.

Fluffy Foo Foo | October 6, 2018 at 3:51 pm

Trump is the greatest President any of us will ever see. Six more years of this! Woo!

How do these idiots get tickets to the gallery? Are they given passes by Dumb-o-crat Senators?

    Diana in reply to guyjones. | October 6, 2018 at 4:19 pm

    That’s my guess. If senators can let whomever they want into the senate chamber and/or office building, each visitor’s pass should indicate who let them in. If there are just a few senators letting protestors in, let those senators answer for the disruption.

DieJustAsHappy | October 6, 2018 at 3:53 pm

Done and Done and Done!

Notice how Schmuck Schumer revealed the Dumb-o-crats utterly contorted and perverted view of the SCOTUS, stating that he wanted a Justice who would do “X, Y and Z” and protect “A, B and C.”

Schumer wants a super-legislator who will do the Dumb-o-crats’ bidding; he doesn’t want an impartial Justice, ruling with restraint.

where are the ka-Booms?

there were supposed to be earth shattering ka-Booms…

😎

DieJustAsHappy | October 6, 2018 at 3:58 pm

As an aside here. I like Mike Pence. It was a tough campaign. It’s been a tough, tough nearly two years. I’m glad to see he’s able to preside over the Senate on this occasion!

Are we there yet? 🙂
#ConfirmKavanaughNow

Colonel Travis | October 6, 2018 at 4:01 pm

HELL YEAH!

WOOOH! Thank God!

When can he start?

DieJustAsHappy | October 6, 2018 at 4:04 pm

As they’re brothers-in-arms, so to speak, it would be grand if Justice Clarence Thomas would do the swearing-in of Brett Kavanaugh.

About time!

Morning Sunshine | October 6, 2018 at 4:05 pm

waiting for the fireworks!

filiusdextris | October 6, 2018 at 4:05 pm

I tuned in and immediately heard Pence’s blessed words of confirmation. Yeehaw!

Now I’ll just pray he doesn’t turn into another J. Roberts.

Oh happy day! Woo and a most profound and exhilarated Hoo!

Ok. Why a quorum call? Why not just shutdown for the day?
Oh and UI think the fireworks have gone off like a well limp male member.

YES!!!

President Trumps leadership at work. His strength gave McConnel, Graham, Grassley and Collins strength,. Any other Republican President after Reagan woulld have pulled the nomination.

    Milhouse in reply to dystopia. | October 6, 2018 at 9:40 pm

    Not once it became clear that it would do no good, because similar allegations would be made against the next nominee (male or female), and the one after that, so what would the point be?

I like the fireworks!

DieJustAsHappy | October 6, 2018 at 4:10 pm

Is there any music?

Who’s tired of winning?

Lee Greenwood and “God Bless the USA” would also be fitting right now. We need it now even more.

“if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves”

Winston Churchill

Any riots outside yet? These are Democrats you know.

Gorsuch with zero controversy only got the following demcratic votes

Donnely indiana
Manchin – WV
Heidkamp – ND

does anyone think Kavanaugh controversy was based on principle?

Does anyone think the opposition to kavanaugh was different from Gorsuch opposition – other than the fake optics?

    DaveGinOly in reply to Joe-dallas. | October 6, 2018 at 5:07 pm

    Excellent comment. That is going into my “comments” file.

    Milhouse in reply to Joe-dallas. | October 6, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    Yes, the opposition was different. With Gorsuch they weren’t losing ground, so they didn’t pull out all their ammunition. They unwisely made McConnell pull the trigger on the filibuster, which if they’d still had it could have given them some extra delay this time around, but they kept the smear campaign in reserve. They could have sent this Ford woman out against Gorsuch just as easily as against Kavanaugh; Gorsuch was at the same school, after all. But they kept her in reserve, which shows they cared more about this fight than that one.

Okay, got my party helmet on. A slight malfunction issue with the beer feed system but it should be fixed in a minute. It’s been sitting there idle far too long. Makes me look erudite and sophistated. Not like that cheese nacho helmet I used to wear. That’s for morons.

Ha steraming just went back to Coons. It just makes me think he needs to get more McDonald french fries.

Headline at Huffypost:

Supreme Farce; Kav Confirmed.

CONTAMINATED: KAVANAUGH HISTORICALLY UNPOPULAR

Ha, that is what they think. Wait for midterms.

Brett Kavanaugh Is Proof Republicans Will Never Hold The Elite Accountable

So is that a pink dildo-phone the rabid stalker is wielding?

If ever a picture was ready made to be a meme, it’s the Lindsay Graham picture. It’s hilarious.

I hope all of this partying doesn’t cause me to ralph or boof.

The greatest thing about Trump is he has taught the Republicans to loosen up and fight back against the media and the left. Relentlessly.

    MajorWood in reply to LukeHandCool. | October 6, 2018 at 6:35 pm

    I would only say that he is teaching them. They still have a lot to learn, but as they say in medical school, don’t screw with an improving condition.

Chuckie and DiFi just got BOOFED!

This press release from the Supreme Court:

The Honorable Brett M. Kavanaugh will be sworn in as the 102nd Associate Justice of the Supreme Court on October 6, 2018. Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., will administer the Constitutional Oath and retired Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy will administer the Judicial Oath in a private ceremony later today in the Justices’ Conference Room at the Supreme Court. Both oaths will be administered so that he can begin to participate in the work of the Court immediately.
A formal investiture ceremony will take place at a special sitting of the Court in the Courtroom at a later date.

      DieJustAsHappy in reply to fishstick. | October 6, 2018 at 5:03 pm

      I’m surprised, considering what Judge Kavanaugh has gone through, that they’re moving so quickly. Needless to say, he’s been under tremendous stress, or more aptly distress. Not given him much time for any beer parties!

I think the Democrats have really shot themselves in the foot with this debacle. Not only did they lose the confirmation battle, but their smears of Kavanaugh have

1) fired up the Republican base for the midterms,

2) disillusioned a number of Republican lawmakers who were willing to work with [cave to] them in the spirit of bipartisanship/collegiality–e.g. Lindsey Graham, AND, most importantly,

3) given the heretofore center right D.C. insider Kavanaugh plenty of cause to loathe them and doubt their motives and integrity for the duration of his lifetime appointment to SCOTUS.

Justice has been served.

Now, it’s time for Ginsburg to go. Mmm,mmm, mmm, three USSC justices in one administration? Haha, let’s get tired of all the winning!

When do we get to do this again?
Gosh, that was swell.
Hopefully the Mid-Terms will be a mess for the Democrats now that they have remover their Burka’s.
The next run may actually go a lot smoother.
My Senator, Murkowski, snapped up an easy way out of having to put in a comfirmation.
I notice Sarah is not all to happy with her.
So, I can see Sarah as the new junior Senator in 2022…
Not that I am unaware of her short-comings, but compared to Murkowski, I have an awful lot I can over-look.

Yay. An innocent man wasn’t burned at the stake. Yay.

    Aye, I hear you, Fen. I used to tell my students that they didn’t get any kudos for showing up in class and doing the bare minimum (that was before this was an actual plus for students at the college level). I was saying, you don’t get rewarded for doing what you should be doing, and that is the essence of your point, I believe. We are celebrating NOT burning an innocent man at the stake, and I get that.

    But we are also celebrating, and I think much more importantly and gleefully celebrating, the death of this kind of personal attack for political gain. Not only did this horrific, shameful, unconscionable strategy of personal destruction fail, but it appears to be rebounding on Democrats. We won’t know for sure until after midterms, but Democrats won’t be quick to pull this kind of stunt again. The backlash from their base is astounding (okay, and kind of funny), and more important, perhaps and certainly politically, is the backlash from the deplorable sleeping giant Dems keep forgetting until their base vileness rouses us from our slumber.

    This isn’t a celebration that the right thing was done at long last. It’s a much bigger win than that, and we have every right to celebrate.

      It’s too early to tell if the Left’s tactics have backfired or if they will suffer any consequence that would prevent them from doing this again next time.

      Yes, a 12 point swing with women. But that’s just another poll, not the actual midterm turnout.

      Charges filed against the doxxer? 4 felony counts were filed against Clanton for cracking skulls with a bike lock. He got 3 years probation.

      Will Feinstein be left standing? Ford and her attorneys? Fusion GPS? Will any of the major players suffer any consequence for this?

      Will we fold when the Cucks advise us “we won, ve merciful, forgive and forget, come together and heal, dont punish the perps” ?

      And then there is Kavanaugh. Is he going to be a Scalia? Remember how hard we fought for Roberts, only for him to rule the Obamacare mandate is a tax? Let’s see how Kavanaugh rules before ordering another bottle of champagne.

      You guys celebrate if you want. I’ll be scanning the ridge-line, wondering why the enemy’s missile launchers are still intact.

        Thanks for having our back, Fen! We’ll enjoy our glee for the moment safe in the knowledge you have our back. Tomorrow, we will take our shift at the ridge-line, ever vigilant, keeping watch. 🙂

          Yah, fuck you too Fuzzy. Geez.

          You two fight it out.

          “Fuzzy, do you remember the night in Geneva when we made love on the billiard table and the balls rolled everywhere?” Pooh asked wistfully while staring down at the smooth, furry patch which once rose like the hills of white humperdinks.

          Well, OK, it’s not in there in those exact words. But you couldn’t sand blast the smile off my face. Hillary Clinton will never be President. Brett Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Pass the cooler full of Georgetown prep brewskis, it’s like Christmas every day.

          OK, back to fighting. I’ll be watching from across the clearing and into the trees, scanning the ridge line with my million mile eagle-like glare. Or, alternatively, every once in a while asking combat if they have anything on their screen.

          Have I mentioned that Hillary will never be President?

        My wife and I just donated to 11 GOP Senate candidates. We need to do our part to see that these kinds of tactics from the Left will have a happy result – the destruction of the Democrats in November.

      I used to tell my students that they didn’t get any kudos for showing up in class and doing the bare minimum

      This will sound dumb but this same principle is why if I’m at a PGA event, I don’t clap when someone makes a normal par (I’m flummoxed when someone claps for a bogey or worse, even out of sympathy.) At baseball games, I don’t clap for a routine grounder to SS and the runner going to 1B is out by a mile.

      Anyway, it’s good to have standards across all subjects. I don’t like it when people are thrilled at something that shouldn’t be thrilling in any way.

        I salute you. I don’t participate in standing ovations for every play I see, either. You’d think people had never seen a play before the way they’ll stand and applaud for 15 minutes for a fair to middling production.

        I don’t like it when people are thrilled at something that shouldn’t be thrilling in any way.

        Like all the encomiums for Collins when she finally started to make Republican-sounding noises.

          Valerie in reply to tom_swift. | October 6, 2018 at 6:45 pm

          Collins is a moderate non-lawyer who gave a full, clear, careful explanation of a decision on the level of an appellate opinion. She demonstrated a clean grasp of the issues, and a good understanding of the subject matter. She obviously did her homework, and did it well.

          The lawyers here cheered for a job well done, not for partisanship. You see, there was an objective right and wrong in this particular case, fully visible to anybody who understands what the applicable due process is. That is why Lindsey Graham got so hopped up. He had expected better of his Democratic colleagues.

          Susan Collins speech would’ve meant something if delivered two weeks ago. But Susan is a political beast, checking and rechecking the political trade-winds. The welfare of her barque being the only consideration. And only now, at the 11th hour, when she finds the climate favorable, and deems it wholly safe, she less-than-boldly weighs anchor.

          Lindsey Graham seized the fallen banner when our republic literally needed a champion. It was his (and our) cultural Agincourt moment.

          Meanwhile, Susan Collins arrives late to the victorious battlefield, strikes her most courtly Falstaffian pose, and plunges a dagger into the heart of a mortally wounded foe.

          A bit of overheated rhetoric on my part, but this is the internet after all!

          tom_swift in reply to tom_swift. | October 6, 2018 at 9:10 pm

          She demonstrated a clean grasp of the issues, and a good understanding of the subject matter.

          Of course she did. They’re not difficult or obscure.

          The problem is that she didn’t allow her grasp of the issues to influence her vote. Not until long after her earlier position became untenable.

          That’s why she’s a jerk, and undeserving of all the accolades tossed her way like laurel draped on a Roman imperator.

          Her crime remains—she’s one of the traitors who allowed the D’rat circus to happen. Putting lipstick on that pig later doesn’t make it any less of a pig, no matter how expertly the lipstick is applied.

          She went to work for a day. Big whoop.

          We’ve got to eliminate GOP squishes, in every race.

          And God damn jeff sessions: but for that corrupt sell-out, corrupt scum like pelosi, harris, fauxacahonas, etc couldnt be pulling the kind of scams they have and will be doing. May he rot in hell alongside his patron hillsry klinton.

          pwaldoch in reply to tom_swift. | October 8, 2018 at 1:50 pm

          Collins was finally making like a Republican. Its also important to praise them when they do what we like, if we want more of it. Sure, she hasn’t been a reliable vote in the past, but she was this time around, and if she sees she will get praise from her electorate for doing it, then good, maybe her Red Pilling will stick.

        I so agree! We all know that you get more of what you reward, so if we reward mediocrity, we get more of it. What we forget, though, is that mediocrity fast becomes the goal: “Gee, if only I could make it to class and do my assignments on time, I’d earn an A for sure.” From there, we have to lower standards ever further so that mediocrity is now achievement . . . and so on. This is what has been happening over the past couple decades in higher ed, and of course throughout our society and culture.

      I tell mine that the police don’t pull people over to thank them for going the speed limit. 😉

      Anonamom in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | October 6, 2018 at 6:25 pm

      “But we are also celebrating, and I think much more importantly and gleefully celebrating, the death of this kind of personal attack for political gain.”

      I devoutly hope that you are correct, Fuzzy Slippers. I, however, am not so sure. Schumer’s speech doubled down on the Kavanaugh-is-a-rapist-I-believe-the-womyns BS, so I think he at least is appealing to their lunatic fringe. While some Democrats are no doubt terrified at what they have released, I don’t know that the leftist fringe groups are going to follow orders. Unfortunately, this particular level of theater of the absurd has been thirty years in the making. I don’t know that there truly is both the commitment and the power to get things back under control.

        Great points, Anonamom, and perhaps in my happy glee that we won THIS war (this was no battle, it was the whole war), I may be giving Democrats too much credit. After all, when have they ever learned why they lose elections? Over a thousand of them at the federal, state, and local level during Obama’s admin alone?

        Perhaps at best, we can hope that the establishment Democrats understand that following the bleating chorus of their crazy base will not get them very far? That’s something, though. 😉

        As to the GOP side, I think this is a wake-up call for them, too. For decades they sought appeasement and bent over backwards for Democrats, but they may finally be realizing (as Graham so eloquently noted) that their good deeds are not respected nor met in kind. It took them a while, maybe, and I may be wrong, but McConnell is walking with a spring in his step, Graham is blowing away the radical left with zingers that make me want to cheer, and Democrats are losing not just momentum, but their base.

        It’s a great day, even if we slice it with a bit of skepticism. Let’s enjoy. Tomorrow we can fret. 🙂

          Anonamom in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | October 6, 2018 at 6:41 pm

          “It’s a great day, even if we slice it with a bit of skepticism. Let’s enjoy. Tomorrow we can fret. ????”

          Well, definitely AMEN to that, sister! Anonamom has declared that she will NOT be making dinner, that Anonadad WILL be driving into town to pick up a fabulous pizza from the best little pizza joint in the West, and THERE WILL BE WINE.

          I’m not completely crushed by cynicism! Yet. 😛

          Your house is the place to be! 🙂

        RNJD in reply to Anonamom. | October 6, 2018 at 9:42 pm

        Well, I for one hope their pussy-hat wearing, screaming like a banshee, Tasmanian Devil swirling crowd shows up on the news every night between now and November 6. Preferably hauled off the Supreme Court steps by the police as they demand Justice Kavanaugh be impeached. Republicans must not get complacent thinking that conservatives have “won” the Court and can skip the next election. Our best chance for that not to happen is for the clowns to keep beclowning themselves all day, every day.

        Edward in reply to Anonamom. | October 7, 2018 at 12:13 am

        I don’t wish violence be visited on them (mostly), but I do hope the Leftmost fringe of the Socialist-Democrats continues their antics. Those who might be tempted to go back to “sleep” will remain alert and pi$$ed off and VOTE.

      Chris Rock, from his greatest work, “Bring The Pain” (1996):

      “You know the worst thing about niggas? Niggas always want credit for some shit they supposed to do. A nigga will brag about some shit a normal man just does. A nigga will say some shit like, “I take care of my kids.” You’re supposed to, you dumb motherfucker! What kind of ignorant shit is that? “I ain’t never been to jail!” What do you want, a cookie?! You’re not supposed to go to jail, you low-expectation-having motherfucker!”

      But we are also celebrating, and I think much more importantly and gleefully celebrating, the death of this kind of personal attack for political gain.

      I doubt it. Their tactics and attacks have been so illogical and divorced from any reasonable concept of reality that they’re now stranded in some alternate universe, with no attachment to anything real. Marooned out there, they can’t run on issues, so I expect them to double down on their program of personal harassment, nonstop synthetic outrage over everything (especially things which don’t exist—the best sort of outrage, because it’s unanswerable), and barrages of false accusations. Next time they’ll prepare their smears a bit better. They won’t have just one letter, hidden under a rock by one senator until she can whip it out at an inconvenient time. They’ll have dozens—and why not? They’re not hard to generate, being entirely imaginary. Criminal offenses, abuses of imaginary “privilege”, violations of modern P.C. orthodoxy, all are easily fabricated. And they’ll be much more careful about their corroborating witnesses. Those will be fake, too, but next time much better prepared beforehand. In future, I think we’ll see dozens of bogus accusations. Perhaps hundreds. The D’rats and the Borg Collective will act as if their survival is at stake.

    AmandaFitz in reply to Fen. | October 6, 2018 at 9:31 pm

    HOWEVER, look at the face of his oldest child- her innocent smile is gone. What the Democrats have put that family through is DISGRACEFUL.

    The Judiciary Committee needs to do a COMPLETE INVESTIGATION of how Senator Feinstein hijacked the process, whether Dr. Ford’s lawyers violated DC Bar ethics, and how a former DOJ/FBI lawyer/spokesperson was involved in all of it.

    If they do NOT investigate further, Justice Kavanaugh will never be fully vindicated, just as Justice Thomas STILL suffers in the media from Anita Hill’s false accusations. Don’t pretend that sweeping the Democrats’ behavior under the carpet will “help in the healing.” Democrats do not want healing- they only want power and if that means the character assassination of an innocent man, so be it.

      I noticed that in the photographs, too, Amanda, and it broke my heart.

    Never attack our beer.

Rev Al made an odd claim on MSNBC about justices nominated by president that didn’t win the popular vote.

John Roberts – Bush 2004 50.7% popular vote
Clarence Thomas – Bush 1988 53.4%

Ruth Bader Ginsburg – Clinton 1992 43.0%
Stephen Breyer – Clinton 1992 43.0%
Samuel Alito – Bush 2004 50.7%
Sonia Sotomayor – Obama 2008 52.9%
Elena Kagan – Obama 2008 52.9%

Neil Gorsuch – Trump 2016 46.09%
Brett Kavanaugh – Trump 2016 46.09%

What was interesting is that Wikipedia doesn’t list the popular vote percentage for Bill Clinton.

    Liberals/Democrats make a special exception for Clinton, claiming he won a majority then when pointed out he never did, either election, well, he won the popular vote. Not sure they could define plurality…

    Which is one of the reasons we have that electoral vote thingy.

    Fen in reply to Neo. | October 6, 2018 at 6:21 pm

    Popular vote is irrelevant. I wish we would stop entertaining arguements that grant that premise.

    No one “won” the popular vote because it’s not in play. If it counted for anything, both candidates would have run entirely different campaigns, vote turnout would have been massively greater, and the final popular vote totals would be completely different.

    Sharpton is a idiot.

Tiny Tim and I are loving all this Winning.

We probably ought to link the Hampster Dance, too.

With Kavanaugh’s confirmation #MeTooLiars have been bitch slapped. Most certainly A MeToo claim should be accompanied with tangible evidence, and if such a claim cannot be substantiated, then the claimant should be subject to civil and criminal remedies.

    The Democrats are so ashamed of how they covered for their rapists, they decided to punish some guy who was accused of being too grabby in high school.

That picture of Patty Murray behind UpChuck… Bovine-Americans are well represented in the Senate.

Mid terms will tell us a lot about the future of this country. The choice has never been clearer. After all of this if the democrats take the house and Senate, I don’t see much hope.

    IF the Dems take both houses, the first thing we should do is investigate for Chicago-style voter fraud!

Ooo, and he’s already sworn in. That was fast!

So, Democrats’ feelings weren’t even considered here? Seriously?

Over at Breitbart, John Nolte in his “winners and losers” column has written he can’t wait for Graham to become Trump’s next A.G.

My Gosh, that would be horrid. Graham loves him some illegals and would never tighten things the way Sessions has. Graham is the one that said if we don’t like immigration, then all of the people in their 50s have to start having kids, or words to that effect.

This isn’t off-topic. I swear it’s not!

I am relieved.

I do not believe we have seen the last of the character assassination campaigns. That is because the Democratic Party at the national level is being drained of its smart and ethical supporters. Further, they don’t have any policies to run on, so the only thing they think they have left is character assassination. That is exactly what the New York Times reporter mirrored back to the Clintons, when they made that crucial, disastrous choice about how to run their campaign against DJT.

The following is a quote from a verified email from Patrick Healy, National Political Correspondent, New York Times, to members of the Clinton campaign. Circulation information is available, as well.

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/59194

“We’re told that President Clinton (like Mrs. Clinton and some other Dems) thinks that Trump would be a formidable opponent in the general election, and that Dems are in a form of denial if they dismiss Trump as a joke who would be easily defeated in November. President Clinton, like others, thinks that Trump has his finger on the pulse of the electorate’s mood and that only a well-financed, concerted campaign portrayed [sic] him as dangerous and bigoted will win what both Clintons believe will be a close November election. ”

The Clintons themselves decided to AVOID a policy discussion to the extent possible, in favor of a campaign of slander. The rest of the party keeps doubling down on that failed strategy. Unless and until substantial numbers of Democrats in high public office are replaced, they will stick to what they think they know how to do.

    Not to mention their more radical donors, who are driving a lot of the intransigence. If someone on their side would stifle the likes of George Soros and Tom Steyer, perhaps one or two less radical Dems could emerge—I’m not holding my breath!

Octoberfest at the Kavanaugh’s will be blast this year. Keg already on order.

I was at an Academic League tournament all day, as my son is on the Varsity Team. I took a break around 1:30 pm just to watch the fireworks…which were epic. I had to do it on my cell phone, so I couldn’t savor the full experience.

Now, I am back at home, enjoying a glass of this:

Justice served, it is a good day indeed! Next up: midterms, let’s sock it to them good there as well!

Fun historical video that we can all fully enjoy, now — Justice K.’s Circuit Court confirmation hearing in 2006. Schmuck Schumer is the first interrogator and he’s as hostile and obnoxious as ever.

I’m working on my ahistorical novel “Black Cats and Green Dragons, a Song of The Slot.”

https://portal.engineersaustralia.org.au/event/black-cats-catalina-flying-boats-australian-service

Everything in my novel may turn out to be a lie. But on the other hand some of it may be true. I wasn’t there. Neither were you.

“He rolled back, aware of the atrocity that had just passed between them. The words. The words. They just wouldn’t, couldn’t, form. Finally he stammered, “You want some Spaghetti-Os? I’m thinking of heading into the kitchen and reheating some Spaghetti-Os.”

She stares down. ‘I was thinking Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.’

Damn!

His mind races. “I don’t want to lose her” he thinks.”Aha!” “I don’t have Ben and Jerry’s” he sez. “But I have a Boston Cream Pie.”

“Yes, yes.”

    Inspiration profided by Lena Dunham sitting on a toilet eating a birthday cake. An experience I could but choose not to relive for the sake of decency.

I realize that I’m going to be accused of exploiting these men. Nothing could be further from the truth I realize as my history scatters in my rear view mirror. The only question left to ask is, “What lies do I want to stick to me.?”

LI did the best job of covering the vote compared to the other sites I frequent. And the posters held their ground too. Good job, Mr. Jacobson and friends. The fireworks made my week. You all have built a great community.

Ya think this is marketable?

The maintainers: “If only I had a f***ing spark plug. I could use a fouled spark plug. But right now I have 14 cylinder radial engine with a hole in it.”

the Marines: “Where are those army jackwagons, we were only supposed to take the beach.”

The drivers: “How the f*** am I going to avoid a court marial?” JFK sez to himeelf. Three liberty engines and he couldn’t stay out of the way of a Japanese destroyer.

And:

“‘It will fly’ Greg keeps telling himself as he stares at the trees he’ll crash into if it doesn’t.”

That’s sort the skeleton for the song of the slot. Think it can work?

looking back on it I did more harm than good. How I didn’t get shot I’ll never know. There I am stumping for the Klan as they put it at the time. And I’d do it again. It’s important.

I am hardwired to admire a great deal about the female form. Watching Asyly Kavanough’s reactions to her man being taken apart in public, I realized that there as something about a woman that I admired. Something that I always knew but never put into words.

Her spine.

the histrionic mob was defeated. for now.

but if the Republicans don’t make them pay dearly, the mob will do it again and again and again.

if I was Kavanaugh, I’d sue swetnick and others for defamation of character (could he do that?)

    It’s a pretty high bar. I don’t think as a publid person Kavanaugh can meet it. As a practical matter I’d let it go. Look at his daughters. Odds are he’ll come up empty. Not that he wasn’t slandered but you can’t prove it. Drag it out? No way.

The man’s wife and daughters are absolute angels. Where do you go to get issued girls like those?

“Believe all survivors”?

There are people alive and free today who were on Death Row due to eye witness testimony – which was later recanted or proven mistaken via physical evidence.

There are African Americans men who died at a young age due to accusations of “inappropriate behavior” made by white females prior to the 60s civil rights victories – without benefit of trial or recourse to prove innocence – because the standard THEN was “believe all survivors”.

The turning point for me in the Thomas/Hill hearings was the moment when a judge Friend of Ms. Hill who was called to testify that Ms. Hill had shared her story of a Boss’s harassment – so as to give credence that the story was true and not of recent provenance – repeated the shared story – and when asked for a timeline repeatedly gave one that excluded the time frame Ms. Hill worked with judge Thomas. Saying she was 100% sure when pressed. The (D) chairman hurriedly called for a short recess. The witness was talked to off live mike. Upon reconvening, she NOW admitted she was unsure of the timeframe – the same timeframe she had positively and 100% been sure of just moments before.

Perhaps Ms. Ford truly believes that judge C. Harassed her nearly four decades ago. Lacking any collaborating witness, lacking collaboration from the witnesses she herself named as there, lacking any documentable history of remembering an attack at all until decades later, lacking any documentable history of remembering Judge C. as the attacker at all until his being put forward as a nominee, lacking any memory of details surrounding the event which COULD be investigated so as to either disprove or collaborate her story…… Her story has no more evidentiary value than that of a white female complaint in the 50s in Georga that a black man winked at her.

But evidently the current generation of Democrats is all too eager to return to those “good old days” when extra-legal “justice” is to be served up to those they despise as less then themselves.
