We all know the FBI is corrupt.

The Democrats have radicalized Kavanaugh. I predict Roe v. Wade is toast

-10 ( +9 / -19 )

It is very sad that the major motivation for many of those fighting justice Kavanaugh's nomination is to protect the right to terminate the life of children in the womb.

If this is what this war is about, may the babies win.

"We believe all survivors" ...

Believing before investigating amounts to religious faith and it's a very dangerous mindset.

Americans are now guilty once accused.

Senators may be reviewing the FBI report, but voters have been reviewing the deceit, depravity and hate that it takes to destroy good people that democrats seem to be so at ease with. They lost this round by losing moderates with atrocious antics, slanderous presumption and legal deception.

Poll numbers in the last week are quite clear as the lagging GOP gap for midterms has been halved--with undecideds clearly shifting to the right.

Major backfire.

Absolutely. Radicalization happening overnight indicates mental stability and a judicial temperament. Kavanaugh's definitely the correct person for the job.

Who knows what goes through his head during a marathon boozing session?

3 ( +14 / -11 )

Speaking of judicial temperament, recall Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s rhetorical assault on Donald Trump in July 2016. “I can’t imagine what the country would be—with Donald Trump as our President,” the Justice averred, adding that the possibility brought to mind her late husband’s advice: “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”

How does that rate on partiality?

It is highly likely Trump will have a third SCOTUS pick for RBG’s replacement. No doubt part of the dem’s scorched earth tactic with Kavanaugh is to make future conservative SCOTUS nominations so horrific to consider that no one will accept.

Spot on. It'll be a great day for the rule of law when Kavanaugh is drunk on the bench. It'll be similar to when that paragon of conservative values Rehnquist was making decisions whilst blasted out of his mind on opiates.

Exactly! Providing kme's opinions about a person whilst not acting in your official capacity is an exact equivalent to attacking a political party and pushing Clinton conspiracy theories during your job interview. It's exactly the same. Why can't libs see this?!

Totally agree.

It blows my mind that some Americans seem so willing to throw innocent until proven guilty under the bus.

Can they not see the logical consequences for the legal system as a whole?

5 ( +15 / -10 )

It blows my mind that some Americans seem so willing to throw innocent until proven guilty under the bus.

It blows my mind that people think not disparaging the alleged victim is tossing out the innocent t until proven guilty standard. Believing all survivors means allowing an investigation to go forward instead of railing in the alleged victim.

This is a backlash against the culture that created the situation in which 2/3 of all sexual assaults go unreported.

If they can rush an investigation like this through so quickly, why can't Trump set a strict timeline for the IRS to finish auditing his tax returns, so they can finally be released?

I could have done a more thorough investigation with an Ovaltine decoder ring.

Cue the screaming helplessly at the sky.

Not having a new SCOTUS member before elections cannot be allowed if you are Republican. It just cannot. Way to important for the next 20+ yrs.

It will hurt at election time, how much, nobody knows, but it has to be done.

Dems did a good job getting 4 weeks of news coverage about the "evil Republicans" who don't care about women at all.

Will that be enough to win any seats? I don't know.

My absentee ballot arrived this week. Think I'll vote yes to allow Sunday brunch meals to include alcohol. It is currently illegal here before noon.

"I'm sick and tired of seeing women's experiences not be given weight,"

Among other negatives, after an ever so brief period when women were finally believed after claiming they'd been assaulted, the Trump era will be looked back on as a time when privileged class males could get away with assault because as always they could afford the best legal protection and because a fellow privileged class male was on the Supreme Court.

@burningbush Americans are now guilty once accused.

Totally false. Weak flame. Hopefully the US under Trump, with a GOP (the party of the privileged class) controlled Congress and under the Trump Supreme Court won't copy Russia where spousal battery has been decriminalized.

Of course they should confirm him. The problem is the Democrats were never seeking the truth, they were only seeking to destroy and create chaos. Well, shame on you Democrats, you have once again shown your true colors as over 50 percent of America knows you will reap what you sow. All the liberal posters here should thank the Politicians they elected for representing their base in such a pathetic way.

-8 ( +7 / -15 )

Several people came forward to describe Kavanaugh's drinking habits in high school and college, which go contrary to what he said to the senate panel. Plus the definitions he gave of several expressions on his calendar that don't match reality. It's more than likely that he lied to senators while under oath.

That's what they should be concerned about.

6 ( +13 / -7 )

The elephant in the room:  Why, after denying President Obama his selection for the Supreme Court and keeping the seat open for over one year, are Republicans now in such a rush to confirm?

It blows my mind that some Americans seem so willing to throw innocent until proven guilty under the bus.

Says the crowd that all chanted "Lock Her Up" - it's spelled H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-S-Y....

8 ( +13 / -5 )

Really, you think she is innocent? Oh Bill is innocent too.....

-7 ( +6 / -13 )

@bintaro That's what they should be concerned about.

Exactly. I think most #kavanopes agree. Most think a man who's dishonest should never serve on the Supreme Court. Another argument against him is he's said to believe the executive should be granted more power than most Americans, especially those who fear Trump becoming more of a despot, believe an executive should have. Most Americans don't want a king. Or tsar. Or autocrat of any kind.

Oh Bill is innocent too.....

Halloween month so the ghosts of the Clintons are once again haunting rightists.

Say hello to the Left's October Surprise.

-10 ( +7 / -17 )

For weeks I wondered why Kavanaugh supporters were too cowardly to explain the Republicans' choice to cram this confirmation down America's throat. I have been forced to consider the possibility that they don't support him in spite of his horrible, unprofessional traits. They support him because of his horrible, unprofessional traits. For the party of Trump, inflicting trauma and suffering through incompetent government appointments is its own reward.

2 ( +10 / -8 )

Believing all survivors means allowing an investigation to go forward instead of railing in the alleged victim.

But she still hasn’t gone to the cops! She would have at least some credibility if she filed her case with the Montgomery County Maryland police department. They have stated that they are willing to pursue the case despite the fact that the statute of limitations in effect at the time no longer exists. Why not seek justice and put your rapist in jail? The reason she won’t is because there is more evidence that Ford is a Leftist political operative than a sexual assault and attempted rape/murder “survivor“.

She doesn’t want justice, she wants to inflict her political views on other Americans. She wants to destroy Kavanaugh to save Roe vs Wade. There is little doubt that abortion rights will be sent back to the states if Kavanaugh is confirmed this weekend. There is extreme desperation to save it - it’s almost a religious like obsession. It’s why the Leftists activists have been harassing Republicans at restaurants, airports, and in their workplaces. It’s why they shoot Republicans in baseball fields and send poison to them in the mail. The Lefts extremism is getting very dangerous. It’s worrisome that something terrible might happen.

It blows my mind that some Americans seem so willing to throw innocent until proven guilty under the bus.

Al Franken is wondering the same thing. Doing away with the right to due process is a dead end for Democrats.

-5 ( +7 / -12 )

Although I am against Kavanaugh's appointment and I am not a supporter of Trump I find the poster used in the photo to be scary. This means that ALL accused of any type of sexually related crime are believed to be guilty based on the testimony of a single person.

I deplore any person that commits rape or any sexual crime against a woman, child, or a man for that matter but I would not want to live in this type of world where one is believed to have committed such an act based o the words of one person.

There is no logic anymore. It is all based on emotion.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

there is more evidence that Ford is a Leftist political operative

Ha ha.

Show us that evidence, please. Does she have a Che poster on her bedroom wall?

Don't worry, though. Boofing Bart Renate Alumnius O'Kavanaugh will get the SCOTUS seat he won through all those years of honest hard work, including getting into Yale with no family connections at all (except his grandfather's).

And then you can enjoy the "justice" of watching liberal heads explode.

Doing away with the right to due process

A confirmation hearing is not a court of law.

Besides which, Trump supporters seem to have little regard for the latter anyway. Pardons by Trump are always a legitimate way out as long as those convicted remain loyal to the Don.

Why do the GOP have to give a Democrat President nominee a hearing if that nominee is not a true conservative? Makes No sense, especially knowing that the GOP didn't trust the man.

While I do think it's bad for us to pass judgement without being givin all the facts, the system itself has failed simply by lack of transparency of investigated facts for one of the most important government jobs in America.

That being said, we do know that one of the accusers was confident enough to take a lie detector test that she passed. Usually, where there's smoke, there is fire. Sadly, we the public, will never get to hear all the details of this investigation and he'll likely be approved. Just another example of divisive political practice in America.

@Stuart - The lack of transparency is disgusting. To appease those on "both sides" since things have devolved to levels of divisiveness I have never seen; similarly, under Obama there were many instances where transparency was lacking (vis a vis NAFTA as one good example).

In the end the world is run by the powerful and it is to their benefit to keep us pawns as divided as possible. They are doing a very good job at it.

Allowing single viewings of one hour only of the report is not a thorough and proper process.

This is not a criminal investigation – though it probably should be – this is to determine whether he is fit to be appointed a Supreme Court judge.

Regardless of the veracity of the allegations against him, and even accounting for the stress he must be under, judging from the way Brett Kavanaugh has presented himself throughout the investigation, he is not fit to work at Walmart, let alone be appointed to one of the highest positions in the US.

He comes across as having no integrity, or tact, and being of rather low intellect.

Then again, this is the US in 2018 we are talking about, so perhaps he is overqualified.....

Monkey; it's interesting that nobody brought up Kavanaugh's character or demeanor at any time during the Senate hearings prior to the Ford allegation. Even then, only when it was apparent that her story, while sincere, was not provable to any legal standard. Nor has any allegation regarding his character or demeanor ever been made during his 25 years of public service. Methinks it is a shibboleth, designed to distract.

In the end, it won't matter. He will be confirmed, serve for three decades, life will go on, another Yale graduate will take his rightful place in the upper echelons of power in America.

It's interesting how many downvotes the people who are worried about the "we believe the survivors" part are getting.

I can understand the idea that these people have as well as how it's important to have a certain amount of belief in people who report a crime of any kind. But if the whole "belief" in "survivors" testimony is going to be the basis of whether someone is guilty or innocent, is definitely a scary notion.

Now don't get me wrong, rape/sexual abuse is horrific and I don't wish it on anyone, as well as I understand that the victims of it surely don't want to relive the experience, but, I do think that while initially we should take someone's claim into account, it must be investigated, and proven, before we think about lynching the "bad guy". This seems to be the idea that is common now, "we believe the survivors" so the person accused obviously did it, so lets ruin him/her.

I think this is probably the part that worries people the most.

Once again providing evidence of the second of Trump follower's 'principles', i.e. troll the libs, which of course is based on their first principle, which is believe everything Trump (and his global media supporters) say, then repeat it.

Democratic principles, the law, honesty, morality, ethics, compassion have been dropped by Trump supporters, many of whom say distrust women who claim to have been assaulted.

But I guess that's to be expected when Trump followers say things like 'I'd rather be Russian than Democrat'. After all, in Russia spousal battery has been decriminalized.

Actually that’s not true. Ford can present her evidence to the police and a proper investigation can be conducted. They have stated that they are willing to pursue the investigation despite the fact that the allegation is 36 years old.

If Kavanaugh is found guilty during a trial in which the defendant is allowed due process the Dems probably would not even have to impeach- he would likely resign. Bring the case. That’s what the police and prosecutors are for.

From the yahoo article:

"Stevens, 98"

OK, he can be excused for not being being able to think clearly any more.

"Stevens, a lifelong Republican and appointee of President Gerald Ford who ended up as a generally liberal voice on the court by the time he retired in 2010"

As you can see his mind was already compromised 8 years ago.

After 28 years of public service and without a blemish and once it came out he was going to be appointed to the highest court in the land, the left within 23 min. of the announcement said, they would oppose him and when the hearings proved that he was smarter than all the senators, Feinstein delivered an accusation at the 11th hour with the hopes of stalling or derailing the Judges confirmation hearing, they wanted an FBI background check and then when they got their way and STILL not satisfied they cry foul. Kavanaugh had every right to get emotional, as I have said before, if it were me....well let's say, TV viewers would be glued to the set

Bit of confusion on my part. Maybe in places like China, Russia, North Korea and other totalitarian states the media and the state executive can be compared because the exec owns and/or controls them, making them pretty much the same thing, but comparing the US executive with the media suggests a pretty basic lack of understanding of US systems. Unless that's wishful thinking on your part.

And on a peculiar comparison note, I don't understand how the media can be compared with a continent, let alone a housing lot.

No need for any FBI investigation to determine the suitability of Bart O'Kavanaugh for SCOTUS since he has patently disqualified himself with his own weasel-mouthed ranting and hissy fits. His Animal House performance demeaned the office he aspired to, but we can trust the ruthless, unscrupulous Republicans after consulting their sham inquiry to ignore his disrespectful demeanor and his bathetic, self-pitying protestations of innocence. As always, blind to the truth, they will look past last week's farcical antics and only have eyes for Trump's pick garbed, like the proverbial Emperor, in his beautiful "new clothes". Once more they are now about to press Trump's poisoned chalice to their lips and drink deeply from the draft of their self-destruction. If so, the women of America will soon be heard from!

The allegations by Dr Ford against Kavanugh, while important, are now irrelevant, at least in terms of his Supreme Court appointment. 

They were surpassed by his unhinged testimony in front of the Senate Committee last week.  Judicial temperament is a key variable in the overall assessment of a candidate to the Court - and he failed spectacularly with his over-the-top, emotional performance.   Judicial impartiality is also critical - and by invoking the ghosts of the Clinton's demonstrated clear partisanship.

On these two grounds, irrespective of the sexual assault allegation, he is clearly unqualified and should be denied. 

I wouldn't have chosen Justice Roberts, but it's clear he has the appropriate judicial temperament and is impartial. 

It speaks volumes that Republicans can't find another more qualified candidate that Kavanaugh...

Totally. It's completely different than Kav's classmates contradicting his testimony. It's so different that the corrupt FBI didn't need to

Indeed! Damn Ford helping herself. Damn her!

, the woman can't name specific people at this party, not sure of times or dates and meanwhile, we know that she is a strong liberal, a Hillary supporter.

And we conservatives know that someone's political affiliation tells us all we need to know about their credibility. Since Kav's a good conservative, his political affiliation means nothing negative. It doesn't work both ways!

Now maybe something happened to her, but the woman and her stories are like holes in a ship, they are filling up and fast, her credibility is shot, the game was well played though.

Too right! Kav's stories are airtight, which is why the corrupt FBI didn't bother to interview any of his former classmates that contradicted Kav's testimony. We know anyone that contradicts the Kav are just Hillary supporting libs. ROFL.

Attack a persons family and expect for them to be calm, ruin a persons life and expect them to be calm, threaten a persons spouse and mock their children and expect them to be calm. Given what he went through, I'm surprised that he didn't jump up and strangle those idiots, I know I would have. He had every right to be emotionally outraged and then some. Yes, that was one of the stall idiotic tactics that the Dems used to slow him down to be scrutinized about that, but I think he did exceptionally well given the sneaky ambush he got, better than I would have.

Judicial impartiality is also critical - and by invoking the ghosts of the Clinton's demonstrated clear partisanship.

As if Ruth Ginsberg is a centrist. ROFL. The Clinton's have always, always hated Kavanaugh and who is anyone on JT to make the claim as if they know what the Clinton's intentions are or what they are capable of, he would know because he would get the intelligence on that from various sources. Washington isn't that big of a town.

On these two grounds, irrespective of the sexual assault allegation, he is clearly unqualified and should be denied.  

Well, that won't happen, even if the left wants it. he's more than qualified, I feel bad that he had to go through that fiasco with the slithering Democrats, but it should have been expected.

I wouldn't have chosen Justice Roberts, but it's clear he has the appropriate judicial temperament and is impartial.  

Impartial, not really and what a disappointment he turned out to be for conservatives on many issues, but he wasn't personally attacked, would like to see how he would have reacted, probably in the same manner if he is human.

It speaks volumes that Republicans can't find another more qualified candidate that Kavanaugh...

No, the Dems are afraid of Kavanaugh and as his record suggests, he is a strict constitutionalist, which works out great for the country and conservatives, but will in no doubt be bad for liberals that have always depended on activist courts to pass their radical and deeply flawed legislations.

At first I gave Christine Blasey Ford the benefit of the doubt and thought something might have happened to her, she just got the parties involved all wrong. I don't believe a word she says anymore. She made up the whole remodeling and therapy thing as proven by the Palo Alto district records. And her lawyers knew it. Otherwise they would not have refused to turn over the therapist's notes and the vid for the polygraph. Ford is a fraud, period. 7 FBI investigations on Kavanaugh and nothing. Kavanaugh is innocent.

It is obvious that Dr. Ford was just a pawn in Feinstein's great chess match. I still feel sorry for her. There is obviously something in her background that is haunting her, and the Democrats exploited it for political gain. She is in need of some support and counselling.

For the long term, the court will swing right for a while. Give it ten years, Justice Thomas will stroke out or keel over from diabetes, and a Democrat president will have the chance to restore "balance".

The beauty of this is that after he is confirmed RBG will be up for replacement as well. And the kicker? A woman will be nominated for that spot and all of the regressive leftist hate tactics will go bye-bye and this candidate will need to be judged on her merits alone.

The point is not what he did when he was a teenager. The point is that he tries to deny it, and the way he tries to defend himself. Should a judge lose his cool? Kavanaugh does not appear to be cool and calm.

So you insist that it happened. Just to be clear, these are your allegations:

That they attacked his family.

That they mocked his family.

That they threatened his spouse.

And this is your reaction:

That Kavanaugh would have been justified in strangling people putting unwelcome questions to him at the hearing.

That you would actually strangle someone who questioned you in the same manner.

So considering the extremity of your reaction, I invite you, without deflecting the question or throwing in false equivalence, to simply support your allegations, which I maintain are untrue, with a post that provides three things:

The name of someone present at the hearing who did this (it needn't have happened at the hearing itself: a press conference, media interview, or print article would do).

What they actually said - without interpretation, modification, or distortion. What we call a direct quotation.

A linked source, so that the rest of us can check and verify that you have quoted it correctly.

That's all I'm asking, not inviting a flood of other verbiage. Keeps it simple and clear, and we can see if you're able to back up a claim that I questioned and you insisted is true.

Silvafan - FBI Says It Lacks White House Approval to Talk to Kavanaugh and Ford

According to your linked article -

The FBI hasn’t interviewed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or Christine Blasey Ford because it doesn’t have clear authority from the White House to do so, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.

And

.....The FBI declined to comment on the investigation or its timing.

And

.....FBI Director Christopher Wray is documenting what’s happening behind the scenes in order to help ensure the bureau’s activities in the politically charged investigation are captured and perhaps made public one day, the person said.

Since the FBI has declined to comment about the investigation, I wonder just who the articles authors Chris Strohm and Shannon Pettypiece received their insider "information" from? Ford's lawyers? Feinstein and Durbin talking points? Chuck and Amy Schumer?

Christine Blasey Ford's claims are unsupported. She can't remember where, when, or how many people were involved. Her husband is supposed to have signed some statement that proves he wasn't there, but knows that his wife must be telling the whole truth because she's his wife. Not exactly solid evidence, is it.

Christine Blasey Ford's claims are unsupported. 

Christine Blasey Ford was willing to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath, and did so on live television. Other accusers have also stated their willingness to be questioned under oath, and to speak to the FBI. But in any case, it's all irrelevant to bass4funk's claim, so who knows what point you're trying to make.

Bass4funk has to be referring to something that he imagines happened during the questioning in the hearing, or in the week or so that preceded it, and is alleging something that is very easily verifiable if it happened at all. He says that Kavanaugh's family was mocked, attacked, and (his spouse) threatened.

For any of the Democrats questioning Kavanaugh to have done this, and for him to have been aware of it, it can only have occurred at one of those times, and can only have been done directly to Kavanaugh, or to the media in the form of a printed article, an interview, a press conference or the like.

I simply asked bass4funk, as he claimed that in the same situation he would strangle these people, to indicate who said what and when - if of course anyone said anything at all. He hasn't done so, but like you, has used his energies to supply weak and irrelevant argumentation instead.

There is absolutely nothing to stop him posting a quote that actually proves what he claimed, unless of course the claim was false - because then it would be impossible. And my conclusion is that as he has rejected the opportunity to prove his point, it was a false claim in the first place.

Your claim was that those Democrats in the room went after Kavanaugh's family. They did no such thing, which is why you don't take the opportunity to back up your claim, but resort to yammering about something else instead. Not exactly the first time you've done this either. You talk big, but there's often nothing behind it.

Blasey-Ford made the anonymous accusation. It's up to Blasey-Ford to provide some facts, or evidence, of what happened. None of Blasey-Ford's own chosen witnesses would confirm her claim. They didn't know what she was talking about. Without that information, Blasey-Ford's story was only compelling, but not convincing. 

Either Blasey-Ford, or the Democrats she trusted to keep her claim unanimous, could have asked for an investigation to verify Blasey-Ford's accusations. Since it appears that Democrats were only using Blasey-Ford to further delay Kavanaugh's confirmation, there would have been no reason for Democrats to actually confirm Blasey-Ford's sketchy story.

Anyone who watched the hearingS saw elected Democrats regularly attacking Kavanaugh. These same elected Democrats told media outlets that Kavanaugh was a serial-rapist. Not even the forgetful Blasey-Ford made that absurd claim.

Media outlets have claimed that Blasey-Ford and Kavanaugh, and his family, have received death-threats, and other harassing messages, from boneheads with internet access.

The bottom line is that Republicans had 50 votes to confirm a Republican Supreme Court nominee the day that Kavanaugh's name was announced. Due to the Democrat's predetermined decision to deny any Republican nominee, regardless of his/her qualifications, it took longer to finally confirm Kavanaugh. The only question now is which sitting Supreme Court Justice will retire next.
