Brett Kavanaugh -  Wonderful Choice

The paid mob chants   Hell No On Kavanaugh    Wonder if Soros thought that one up.

F. Chuck Schumer was on CBS This Morning and was just having a come apart.  Love it.  Keep it up Chuck!

Side note... So glad the Thai Soccer Team is out.  This past two weeks has been heart wrenching.  I know what it is like to be LOST waiting for help.

Interesting that tRump chose someone who has specifically said that a sitting president should not be investigated.

hmmmmm - can't help but wonder what 45 is hiding.

If Trump is hiding nothing, then he should release his tax returns like he promised he would.

And he should talk to Mueller.  Now.

And he should explain why his trade tariffs exempt Ivanka's shoes and handbags that are made in China.  Nothing that the Trumps "make" are made in the USA.  Why can't she have her stock made in the USA?

Rerun and Jean,

I have one question for you that I have yet to hear any Trump supporter actually answer: 

 Regardless of whom the nominee is, do you feel that it is appropriate for a president under federal investigation to be allowed to nominate an individual to the Supreme Court when it is that court who will be adjudicating any eventual case against him?

I'm sure he will be just fine.  He's a longtime member of the DC swamp so is used to the game.  He's been around for a very long time.  At least he will get a hearing, unlike Obama's pick.

I honestly don't know who I would have picked, Jean.  I didn't even consider the question as it is pretty irrelevant.  President Trump isn't interested in any opinion from someone who is not his base.  I really don't know much about any of the judges out there that might be under consideration.

One thing that troubles me about this particular pick, though...  It is my understanding that he was on Ken Starr's team when they were after Bill Clinton, a sitting president, and their case brought about Clinton's impeachment.  But since then, Kavanaugh has written that sitting Presidents should not be "burdened" as a civilian would by any lawsuits, either civil or criminal, nor by any investigations into possible wrongdoing.  Doing so, he claimed, would too badly handicap the federal government.

This opinion indicated that Kavanaugh believes that a sitting President is above the law.  Furthermore, since we have a Vice President and two other branches of government, I don't understand how the entire government would fall if a sitting President was under investigation.  America still got on with it while Kavanaugh was on the team investigating Clinton's sex life.

Furthermore, America didn't fall during Nixon's legal problems.

Whenever one admonishes others to trust them, it gives me pause. Trust is earned through integrity, and should never need to be artificially brought to the table. Doing so, usually indicates there is reason not to trust....

I guess if Trump was "really" being investigated for a real crime then he shouldn't pick.  But, they have had plenty of time to arrest him and they haven't.  Because there is no evidence.

If Trump could not pick because he was under investigation... the investigation would last 8 years.  No.  Not falling for that one.

If he has nothing to hide, wouldn't it behoove him to simply testify and be done with it? Then the country could move on with no cloud hanging over the *president.*

On the other hand, look at all the criminal charges (and even convictions) levied against those who have been in tRump's inner circle. Does that not give you pause?

At the very least, it indicates that he is not a good judge of character. At worst, he was well aware of the illegal shenanigans and chose to ignore them (or even participate).

What is it that has convinced you that tRump isn't being investigated for a real crime? Are you truly willing to take that chance?

Manifort and Gates were arrested for Money Laundering for working for the Ukraine back in 2014.  So Manifort is in Solitary Confinement.  WTF  Serial Killers get that.  They are acting like the Mafia.  Squeezing him and his family until the talk.  Are they going to waterboard him next? 

I'm not condoning Money Laundering, but let the punishment fit the crime. 

The DNC was hacked.  But we don't know by whom.  Assange has said he did not get the leaks from Russia or Trump Committee.  Why would he lie.  There is a DNC campaign member who was shot in the back.  They say it was a robbery yet nothing was taken.  Hmmm

Muller has no evidence on Trump.  I would be willing to Tell Muller he has 30 days to bring charges against Trump.  If nothing... Trump picks.

The guy was in a soft prison and he is in "solitary" confinement in a private room with a bathroom, phone (15 minutes only per call - unlimited calls), computer, plus a laptop so he can write emails that are sent when the lawyer carries the laptop outside of the prison  etc... If anything he is getting protected from non white collar criminals.

I'm sure that will change once he is in The Alexandria Detention Center and he probably will be put into "solitary" confinement to protect him from violent inmates.

Manafort is so stupid.  He gets his lawyer to move to push his trial back because he's whining about being "too far" from his legal counsel.  So the judge, in his infinite wisdom, moves Manafort out of his cozy VIP surroundings to that jail in Alexandria so that he can be closer to his attorney.  Not so nice amenities.  LOL!

The FBI knows exactly who hacked the DNC.  They gave the plot a codename, Operation GRIZZLY STEPPE.  The plot began early in summer 2015 by the Russian Military Intelligence service.  Their spies ran all over the DNC computer system for almost a year before they were detected.  By the fall, the FBI notified the DNC that their computer systems were being probed.

Didn't Fox News talk about COZY BEAR?  The people behind this software were a cell of Russian army intelligence soldiers.

The Russian intelligence agency, the FSB, looked at every GOP candidate's file on the DNC system but stole only one, that being the one on Trump.

This is not new news.  The FBI and some members of Congress knew about this before the election.  It was Mitch McConnell who demanded that the American people not be told the extent of Russian hacking.

As for Assange, he has said that he did not obtain the emails by any "state actor".  He almost certainly got them from Guccifer 2.0, the original Guccifer being a Romanian hacker who is presently in a US jail.  Cybersecurity experts believe that Guccifer 2.0 is a Russian citizen but not necessarily a Russian official.

We don't know if Mueller has evidence on Trump.  That's why he needs to be allowed to keep working on the case.  How long did the investigation on Benghazi take?  Seventeen months, and nothing was found.  NOTHING.  If Trump has nothing to be afraid of, he should encourage Mueller to be as thorough as possible and to take all the time he needs.  Besides, the investigation has already resulted in several guilty verdicts, so it IS progressing nicely.

Benghazi was started by a video showing Mohammad  as a Thug!  Right?  That is what Obama and Hillary told us.  So Nothing was found as a crime.  Lying was not a crime.

Hilarious. Truly hilarious in the age of the largest inauguration in history, through being the first R Presidential candidate to win Wisconsin, to the most recent claim - made from the podium by Sanders - that this administration has already increased African American employment more than the previous administration in it's entire eight years. Given all that, to hear you say that because the initial analysis, presented by the National Security Advisory on the Sunday chat shows justifies this ongoing harping about Benghazi after three years of endless wailing and rending of garments. Is astounding and one can only laugh.


Really the stories of Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the rest are now types of shibboleths divorced from the actual events. Signals of faith.

I just learned from a Democrat  that ex-pres OBummer and his minions have declared that all positive growth in everything is because of O'Bummer 8 years of service.  Service such as apologizing to the entire world for the existence of the United States and a request of Putin to wait on asking for anymore favors until the 2016 election was over when he would have more "room" to operate in.     :rofl;

Are you saying that this is the first time you heard the economy does better under Democrats?
Donald was absolutely right when he told Wolf Blitzer in 2004: “I’ve been around for a long time and it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.”

Well, it looks like the Dembos have struck at the 11th hour.  Now we can go back to puberty on to see if someone was sexually curious.  Next we can go back to grade school to see if someone tried to kiss someone.  Good Grief.  No trial, just guilty as paid.  Diane Finestine held on to this hoping they would get Kavanaugh during committee questioning .  The couldn't so now they drug this cat out of the couch.  Sickening!

I find it even MORE interesting that those pushing Kavanaugh had 65 (!!!!!!) letters ready from women who were high school peers of Kavanaugh ready to spring immediately after the victim of attempted rape came forward. Is that not suspicious? Kind of reveals that the GOP were not only aware that this skeleton was lurking, but also that it would be especially damaging.

And doesn't it cause any supporters pause to know that Kavanaugh lied under oath?

To be fair, when the sitting PO(TU)S is a known sexual predator, why should that be a stumbling block for an appointee for the SCOTUS? Smacks my head!

Well, it looks like the Repugnants have struck at the 11th hour.  Now we can go back to equating "sexual assault" with "sexual curiosity".  Next we can go back and see who else on the Supreme Court was also a sexual predator.  Good grief.  A lot of questioning of Justice Thomas, but the old white men on the committee didn't allow any corroborating testimony.  Senator Feinstein held on to this hoping they would get Kavanaugh during committee questioning, and quite right, too!  Bravo!  After Kavanaugh's advice to Ken Starr regarding Bill Clinton, it's a stunning and brilliant move.  And after Senator Mitch The Turtle refused to even TALK to Obama's nominee, color me unsympathetic.  What goes around, comes around.  So, now Sen. Feinstein has revealed what Chuck Grassley has known all along, hence his insistance that the entire committee would be refused access to the documents they requested.  Sickening!!

We've got an election coming up where the Senate will be changed,  so the American people should get to vote before a new Supreme Court Justice is appointed. Hear that, Mitch?

Of course they knew, at least the Rs on the committee did.  At the very least, Grassley knew.

No.  He could probably shoot someone on 5th Avenue, and they wouldn't care.
