A little over one hour until Popcorn time Get your snacks ready and get comfy >The Senate Judiciary Committee hears testimony from Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Professor Christine Blasey Ford about her allegations that Judge Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while the two were teenagers.
The hearing is scheduled to take place at 10am EDT It will be streamed on C-SPAN3 (who went full jew and blocked access to their direct streams) But it will be possible to view it on their website once it starts.
>>175543 Good. At least that will curb the narrative of old white men ganging up on a "defenceless" women. >>175545 Any antifa there? Seeing them beat up a bunch of older women would be bad, but would spark decent outrage.
>>175571 Nice pali. Its about what I expected. The usual Democrat grandstanding, Ford answering "Yes/No" to Democrats and spending a minute or so answering "Uhm,… well I would say blurr blurr blurr blurr blurr blurr blurr to your simple question. And if I could also add blurr blurr blurr blurr…" to the Republican counsel. I thought it was shameful the way Feinstein decried at the outset about how Republicans have treated this process, completely ignoring the fact that it was her own actions that led to what they're calling "ramming Kavanaugh in", because they've already delayed the process far longer than during the Thomas/Hill case. That one faggot who was like "I believed Anita Hill" (like that fucking matters).
I am starting to wonder what her lawyer is trying to hide. Will be fun to see what other innocent questions he will "enact the lawyer equivalent to the taking the fifth" >Did someone advice you to take polygraph test >… THAT IS LAYER CLIENT PRIVILEGE … >Did someone recommend using …. for the polygraph >… THAT IS LAYER CLIENT PRIVILEGE …
>>175650 Nobody gives a shit what the press thinks anymore except the people who already agree with them. What I'm concerned is that this """public pressure""" is going to give some republicucks an excuse to change their vote.
>>175655 Not only did she set that stage very well, but she also specifically indicated and got confirmation that Feinstein decided without permission to release the information wrt to the letter and the testimony. Tl;dr This has been political all along (duh, we knew that, but confirmation) in spite of the good doctor's desires and expressed wishes
>>175657 Kinda blows apart the narrative that the Democrats are allies of and committed to the safety and whatnot of the victim,… If anyone has missed so far, here's Part 1 https://youtu.be/RyMYz_T9Hjg (~1 1/2 hour) and Part 2 https://youtu.be/flWMCww4X3U (~1 hour) of the hearing, ending at the 1/2 hour (1 hour) lunch break
>>175707 I wish there were some shots in this coverage of the faces of the committee. Guarantee NONE of them expected him to show up with a fucking manifesto & SELL his case so convincingly without even attempting to.
>>175712 NPCs in the white house too. If I went from respected federal judge to attempted rapist, to gang rapist in a week, I don't know that I could keep my face straight either. Can't say I'd be prepared for this turn of events.
>>175728 This is backfiring hard on the Dems because literally their entire case was based on emotion and Kavanaugh has completely outdone them there, and you can actually tell it's genuine. Also, the burden of proof is not on him.
>just woke up again and turned on the hearing This poor guy. You can tell this whole thing has been weighing on him hard. [b]WHEN[/u] this is proven wrong and there isn't outrage it will show a sad state of our country.
>>175739 >>175737 >>175733 That is true, but people do not care about burden of proof. The Zim Zam trial was proof enough. Unless he is able to decisively disprove the allegations/starts litigating everyone they'll just keep circling.
>>175753 I'm hoping he starts grilling them on why they didn't ask MD police to investigate SINCE THEY'RE THE ONES WHO ACTUALLY FUCKING WOULD the same way they're trying to hammer him for "not asking for an FBI investigation" himself. Probably because the fucking MD police would have the case closed in days as laughably unprovable & inconclusive.
>>175737 >>175739 Apologies for the double post. I'm phone posting from a hell hole where my data rate is best measured in bits per second. Web forms freak out sometimes. It takes minutes to load this page, much less load images.
>>175766 real people in america have already tuned this out. The democrats are pushing centrists further awzy the more insane they act. a group of normally center-left people i know have just begun to make fun of how ridiculous this whole charade is. "he raped me at an unknown location sometime in between my freshmand and senior year. there were no witnesses. i demand to talk to senators!"
>>175774 Depends on the echo chamber you live in. >Kavanaugh clearly took that criticism to heart. The first 10-ish minutes of his opening statements was delivered in something close to a yell. He blasted Democratic senators for what he insisted was a coordinated attempt to smear him. He invoked the Clintons, he called out Democratic members of the Judiciary Committee for calling him "evil." He also insisted that he would never withdraw as the nominee and dared Democrats to vote him down. >The performance was one that undoubtedly delighted Trump. The question is whether Senate Republicans -- first those on the Judiciary Committee and then the broader GOP conference -- is convinced by Kavanaugh's anger. Is it seen as the righteous indignation of a man who has been wrongly accused?
>>175774 >I can't imagine anyone who has watched any portion of this taking any of it seriously The key words are "has watched any portion of this." A lot of normal fags haven't been watching this. They tune out politics to watch their football and Hollywood. At most they see the fake news headlines.
But again, the opinions of the people at home only matter in respect to the upcoming midterms. We're not the ones who have a say in whether Kavanaugh is confirmed or not.
>>175789 >They have to hold the line as sternly as the Dems are attempting to. Not sure I'd describe what the Dems have been doing so far as "holding the line". Seems more like they're bayonet charging right into a bunch of spiked barricades, hoping they'll pile up enough of their bodies for the rest of their forces to make it over.
>>175795 Well this whole thing was a hail mary. But even though Kavanaugh's opening alone shredded the whole thing, they still managed to find one point (muh FBI illogics) to rally around, and each has been hammering it home while trying to find any other possible crack. My favorite thus far has been the bitch who tried to paint her father's alcoholism as an understandable weakness of an otherwise good man before trying to pain Kavanaugh as one.
>>175797 Yeah, I'm bad at describing things. Imagine a general ordering their troops to throw themselves into a bunch of spiked barricades, then marching themselves over the pile of bodies their dead troops have formed.
>>175804 They're so desperate to push it past the midterms, they're giving this level of an allegation 1,000x more weight & seriousness than it ever should have. One can only hope it eventually turns and bites them in the ass if this tactic proves successful for them.
>>175822 >Nobody forget to vote in November. This year I'm burning some of my vacation time for election day and the day after so that I can spend the whole day glued to status updates and then spend the next day recovering from the ordeal.
>>175822 Honestly & unironically reminds me of watching WWE, when you knew exactly what the heels were trying to accomplish with their bullshit but still had to watch them go through all the motions of making it look legitimate anyway. What I wouldn't have given to hear "Glass shatters" start up out of nowhere.
I watched just about everything and I'm just mad. Kavanaugh and his family should have never had to have gone through what they have. And the fact that every other question the Democrats asked was "Do you remember drinking to the point of blacking out?" It's just depressing to see that this is the current state of our government.
>>175830 I try to be smug about that, but it just saddens me at this point. This man's reputation has been needlessly and irreparably damaged. He and his family has been attacked to a horrid extent, and he will never fully recover very from the humiliation he has faced.
>>175832 I think he'll pull through, especially if he gets voted in. He's got a great, supportive wife from what I saw, and by all accounts has a huge network of friends, family, & associates who all believe in & support him. It was hard as hell to watch him go through it, but that will be paid for to both him & us in salt. I can feel it.
>>175835 Not only that, but she needlessly dragged Ford into the public eye, which was more than she signed up for. She USED her, for the slightest suggestion of political gain. >OY VEY I DID NOT LEAK THE LETTER, HER FRIENDS LEAKED THE LETTER, HER FRIENDS DIDN’T LEAK THE LETTER, THERE WAS NO LETTER YOU RACIST ANTI-SEMITE!
>>175848 >Getting angry when your reputation is ruined should exclude you from the SCOTUS What kind of sociopath would you have to be to live up to that kind of double standard? Leftists are so full of shit; it's unbelievable.
>>175774 >>175776 Anyone who takes CNN (or any msm source) seriously at this point has questionable rationality >>175780 >>175782 The worst part is the fact that this dog and pone show is going on at the expense of the taxpayer. >>175788 You know it's bad when even limpwristed lindsey is on our side >>175809 I really hope this insanity results in less votes. It will be supreme hilarity if a red wave hits and all this stalling was for nothing. >>175827 Thanks anon, pic related
>>175961 >>175963 This. I saw a post on cuckchan that said that they already have the votes, and this has been too awkward for normies to talk about since a lot of them are conflicted and unsure this time around. They really didn't execute this circus well.
I had a three hour class today and talking about Kavanaugh wasted two-thirds of the class time. Assuming Kavanaugh gets through, the Trump administration basically has civnat Hitler in the Supreme Court.
After a disgraceful day where the Democrats showed their true colors and turned all fair minded people against them.
Today at 9:30am EDT there will most likely be a vote in the Senate for them to confirm Judge Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. >Senate Judiciary Committee holds an executive meeting to possibly vote on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
>>175992 >Today at 9:30am EDT there will most likely be a vote in the Senate for them to confirm Judge Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Exist yet the possibility that this circus will continue until Tuesday or Wednesday.
>>175997 > The vote later this morning is just to end this hearing & push the vote to the full Senate. Okay, understand. Well hopefully the last day in the Judiciary Committee will be used to scold Feinstein for her disgraceful behavior, and her blaming the good friends of Ford for leaking something Ford didn't want to be leaked.
>>176000 So just 30 hours delay… But if they are not going to say anything or do anything for those 30 hours why is is allotted?
>>176001 >why is is allotted? Likely to allow both sides time to talk to everyone & secure their votes either way. I honestly don't know if they need to talk through it, but that'd be fucking hilarious if they did. Hopefully Feinstein would try to Iron Man it & drop dead 3 hours in.
I'm just going to point out the obvious here and say…Even if Kavanaugh is proven innocent the damage is done. The Democrats and their supporters will continue to make up even more ridiculous lies and incite violence. The anti-Trumpers will never believe in the truth and take part in said violence.
Seems like there is no place left on this planet to run to.
>>176014 >anti-Trumpers >Seems like there is no place left on this planet to run to. This is great. Accelerationism means war. Communism is sickness waiting to be uprooted once and for all, along with its (((ideologues))), promoters and collaborators.
>>176037 Yep. Sadly the mainstream media will not report that Democrats had the info in 60 days without doing anything to investigate. Nor will they report that the Democrats also recommended that Ford got a lawyer weeks before they had individual personal interviews with Kavanaugh (i.e. before the public hearing).
>>176040 Yeah, I know. The reason I sat through every minute yesterday is so that I wasn't getting Fox's, or CNN's, or anyone else's spin or take, or soundbite-ridden video clips, but aside from the few hundred-thousands who were watching (which isn't insignificant, but still a gross minority) the vast majority of the country is. The partisanship of this process is clear and apparent.
>>176070 this probably means the republicans have the votes to recommend kavanaugh to the broader senate vote, which means he'll be confirmed before too long and we get to watch the left lose their minds about it
>>176073 I think he tried. But I think he basically destroyed his opportunity to run for President. All one have to ask him if he don't think it time for a woman to be president and that he should step aside so a woman can run instead of him.
>>176074 Gawd, he's just gonna keep talking until Grassley shuts him down, and they're gonna use that as a sound-bite. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes on until they have to have him removed; he's already had his "I don't care if I get kicked off the Senate Judiciary" moment. My roommates - who don't follow politics - can clearly see what he's doing. Its that obvious.
>Senate Republicans do not yet have the votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. That's according to Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, the third-ranking member of Republican leadership. >Thune said that Republicans still have "a little work to do" to get enough support. >Whether Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court could hinge on the votes of two Republican senators: Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. It does not appear that President Donald Trump or the White House is reaching out to them to try and influence their decision. >Thune said while such calls may be well-intended, "it's better to let people decide on their own up here." >Republicans have set a committee vote for Friday afternoon to send Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate. http://archive.fo/EL97X
>>176085 Vote passed and the nomination is forwarded to full senate vote. But there will probably be an 1 week pause where the FBI will find out that nothing happened and then they will vote in full senate. >give the FBI a limited time, no more than one week, and limited scope, limited to the allegations at hand, to do an investigation.
>>176088 what is the FBI even expected to do? Ford has yet to produce an exact date or location and it's not like they'd be able to find any forensic evidence after 36 years anyway, the three witnesses she named also denied her allegations under oath already
>>176094 Its partially this, the 'advisement' was put forward by Jeff Flake (yeah, his name is literally Flake) after a meeting with Democrats during the lunch break, but watch 'witnesses' come out of the woodwork. Just watch. This isn't over.
>>176099 >>176100 The FBI already concluded once nothing happened. And the only witnesses that can come forward that Ford claim saw anything have all said it didn't happen. Or rather that they don't recall. If they suddenly recall within one week I doubt anyone, at least not the FBI, will take their "sudden recollection" serious (besides perhaps send them to jail for perjury).
Starting to see memes of none other then Senator Lindsey Graham. I never though this would happen. I've always viewed him as an effeminate wuss, and that outrage yesterday was completely out of character for him in my opinion. Cruz and some other Republicans are also seemingly shining in a better light recently too. Is this feeling because the Democrats have become literal devils and Republicans look better because they are on "our team," or are they genuinely improving?
>>176113 The righteous anger he showed at that moment was refreshing, and inspiring to a certain extent. I can't say it's a sign of improvement, but they could all see plain as day that this case has been full of shit.
>>176113 I think it is that Republicans and those on the right are mostly honorable people and live by a set of moral codes. Leftists are not shy of doing all kinds of nefarious deeds to reach their goal. When you remove the good religion lying will no longer have any repercussions. As long as you don't get caught by the law you skate free in their mind. I their mind there is no afterlife, religion is a bad thing for them because it makes you accountable even if the laws of man don't catch you. But for people like Lindsey Graham the laws of God and the eternal soul of people matter. And when righteousness sees injustice it doesn't shy away. >For justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it. Who rises up for me against the wicked? Who stands up for me against evildoers? >Psalm 94:15-16
>Sen. Cornyn says GOP leaders will allow up to a week for background check of Kavanaugh. >Senate Republican leaders have agreed to delay a final vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to allow time for an investigation by the FBI of the sexual misconduct allegations against him. >Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican, says, "There's going to be a supplemental background investigation," which would delay a vote "no later than one week." >Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called earlier Friday for the FBI to investigate the sexual misconduct claims against Kavanaugh. He said the process should not take longer than a week. >After Flake made that call, the Judiciary Committee sent Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate in an 11-10 vote. http://archive.fo/NTbmL
(addendum) As testified by the ki-adi mundi looking motherfucker, the left has already purchased the domain name to oppose the next SC nomination. Do you really think they're not planning years in advance?
>>176145 >Just watch Looking like you're right. All manner of shit is being thrown at the wall in hopes it'll stick. Pic related as well, can see that angle coming too now. They should've just fucking pushed the vote.
>>176156 Yeah, muh "can't possibly be impartial now because we ruined his impartiality".
>>176160 Didn't see that shit coming, but guess I should have.
>>176220 >>176221 >>176223 Ok, I've got you now. And yes, absolutely all of them work for the kikes. There is no way anyone of them could make it into main politics without the "kosher" rubber stamp. It makes me sad that most of the Trump supporters aware of this massive treason, deny this reality and play along.
>Trump Agrees to Open ‘Limited’ F.B.I. Investigation Into Accusations Against Kavanaugh >President Trump, ceding to a request from Senate Republican leaders facing an insurrection in their ranks, ordered the F.B.I. on Friday to open an investigation into accusations of sexual assault leveled against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, his nominee to the Supreme Court. >The decision capped a confusing day on Capitol Hill, where the Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to advance Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination, but only by agreeing to a last-minute demand by Senator Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona, to conduct a time-limited inquiry. >“I’ve ordered the F.B.I. to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh’s file,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week.” http://archive.is/m48Up
Important Lesson In chess, and in life: Unless your opponent quits/forfeits the game, they always get a counter-move. No matter how successful one appears to be, your gains are always subject to reprisal, and if your opponent is of any competence you will not see it coming.
>Leland Ingham Keyser, a friend of Christine Blasey Ford whom is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were at a party in high school, does not refute the veracity of the allegation, although she does not remember the alleged incident, her lawyer said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. >"Ms. Keyser does not refute Dr. Ford's account, and she has already told the press that she believes Dr. Ford's account," Keyser's attorney, Howard Walsh, wrote in the letter, which was sent to the committee overnight Friday. "However, the simple and unchangeable truth is that she is unable to corroborate it because she has no recollection of the incident in question." >Walsh also said in the letter that Keyser will "cooperate fully" with an FBI investigation into the allegation. >The previous statement, which Walsh released to CNN and the committee last week, said, "Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford."
>FBI reaches out to second woman who has accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct >The FBI has begun contacting people as part of an additional background investigation of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, including a second woman who alleges that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her, according to people familiar with the unfolding investigation. >The bureau has reached out to Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh’s who alleges that he shoved his genitals in her face at a party where she had been drinking and become disoriented. It was not clear that agents had yet interviewed Ramirez. But the FBI is moving quickly to contact people as part of the new background investigation, which President Trump ordered on Friday under pressure from key members of his party. http://archive.is/MQ34G
>Trump asks if Feinstein leaked allegation against Kavanaugh, says FBI probe may be 'blessing in disguise' >President Donald Trump on Saturday fully backed his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, said the FBI investigation of him may be a blessing in disguise and questioned whether Sen. Dianne Feinstein might have leaked the sexual attack allegation from Christine Blasey Ford. >Trump trashed Democrats and the media at the campaign event, saying the Kavanaugh hearing at which both the nominee and Ford testified showed that the Democrats were full of "anger" and "mean," "nasty" and "untruthful." The president said they were on a "mission to resist, obstruct and destroy. You've seen that over the last four days." >"They don't care who they hurt, who they have to run over in order to get power and control," he continued. "That's what they want — power and control — we're not going to give it to them." >He called the Democratic Party the "party of crime" and pointed out to the crowd that was a new line of attack on his part. At another point during the rally, which lasted over 80 minutes and touched on dozens of domestic and foreign issues, Trump said he and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "fell in love." >Earlier, Trump was asked by reporters about Kavanaugh when he was on his way to West Virginia. "I think it's going very well," Trump said. "The FBI as you know is all over talking to everybody…he's a very high-quality person. I would expect it's going to turn out very well for the judge, there's never been anybody that's been looked at like Judge Kavanaugh." >Trump added that "having the FBI go out and do a thorough investigation, whether it's three days or seven days, I think it's going to be less than a week, but having them do a thorough investigation, I actually think will be a blessing in disguise, it'll be a good thing." >Trump suggested the FBI probe might even reveal who he said leaked an allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh by Ford and he hinted that it could be Feinstein. >"I think, frankly, the FBI has a chance reveal a lot of different things," Trump said. "I'd like to find out who leaked the papers. Was it Sen. Feinstein? Because certainly her body language was not exactly very good when they asked her that question, so I would like to find out, as part of it, who leaked the papers, which Democrats leaked the papers?" >Trump said he has no plans to replace his Supreme Court pick. >"I don't need a backup plan," the president said. "We have to see what happens. I think he's going to be fine. Again, one of the most respected men, and certainly one of the most respected jurists, or judges, in the United States." >Trump said on Saturday that the FBI has "free reign" in its investigation, although NBC News reported exclusively that significant restraints have been put on the agency.
This is some seriously ultrapolarizing shit, at a time when the US is already starkly polarized & has been for a couple years now. Had to play a show last night/this AM & it's seriously fucking ridiculous how many people in the mostly leftist area I was in were buying that side's slant of it 100%. Every one that I'd talked to had not watched it live, either; had only seen any of it as presented in their typical news shows, if they'd seen any video from it at all. The anger & vitriol they had about it was intense, the whole atmosphere tense. Couple near fights went down, which for this scene was unusual (couldn't tell you what they were sparked by, though). This shit stands more of a chance of exploding than I would've thought.
>>176406 So one step closer to Civil War.. I wonder if the leftist realize how hard they would loose if they started it. Also wonder when, if ever, leftists will realize they are not as enlightened as they are led to believe. If they only for one moment could put down the party book and actually watch the raw footage they might learn something.
>>176407 >>176407 >I wonder if the leftist realize how hard they would loose if they started it They don't even have a clue how widespread the opposition to them IS. They live in echo chambers, and for the most part, all but people in the far-right have learned to keep their mouths largely shut; they're not "known" opposition to them. They avoid conflict & act/vote in opposition silently. They attribute so much to Russia & trolls that they're totally blinded, assuming the vast majority completely agrees with them & it's a minority of racist whites somehow using their privileged system & outside interference to gain control.
>>176408 >They don't even have a clue how widespread the opposition to them IS. This is a good point. Only danger (mostly for them in the end) is that they will lash out violently because they think it is only a minority they are fighting against. Still a couple of hundred thousands delusional leftist lashing out can do some damage, and only way to stop it is if the government hit back hard.
>>176406 What disgusts me the most is that every day leftists i talk to, even family, think that it was perfectly acceptable for (((Fienstein))) to hold off this information until the day before Kavanaugh was confirmed. If Fienstein were serious, and mentioned this shit two months ago when they were doing background checks, leftists could've had their FBI investigation, Fird could have remained Anonymous, Kavanaugh could have kept his reputation, and there wouldn't have been a fucking national outcry over all this bullshit. Despite being informed of all that, liberals think it was okay; they especially like to site "muh Merrick Garland" over it, when questioned about the ethics of what Fienstein did. The willingness of luck liberals to defend the atrocious acts committed by their party leadership, even when they're being misrepresented, absolutely astounds me.
>>176411 >a couple of hundred thousands delusional leftist lashing out can do some damage, and only way to stop it is if the government hit back hard Their ideas of who their problem is are so completely delusional for the most part that they'll end up shoving all the fence sitters into the opposition camp as well. And there are so many militant rights with itching priapisms, fucking DYING for someone to throw a damn chair already, that there's a decent chance the shit would be largely over & done with by the time the government mobilized enough to respond en masse.
>>176423 Fucking objectivity & critical thinking went out the window for most with the election (like the left had much of it to begin with) & it's only gotten worse & more widespread. I'd love to be able to say all around it was only on their end, but I've seen too many niggers on cuck/pol/ & even irl go full retard. Like with the Gunn shit. Don't get me wrong, it was absolutely hilarious & a sodium overdose to make them eat the shit they'd be feeding the rest of us, but trying to hold autist tweets up as indisputable evidence of actual pedophilia was retarded #metoo tier faggotry. When you give up the moral high ground you give up your right to bitch about their tactics.
>>176426 Yep they will stand totally alone once they start their total chimpout. And they will fairly quickly be beaten. But there will be a few cities and towns burning and a lot of property damage before that. But I guess it is a very small price to pay to be able to remove them for good.
>Kavanaugh withdraws from teaching at Harvard Law this winter, as graduates gather signatures objecting to his role >Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh will not teach at Harvard Law School in the winter, as he was expected to do, the university announced Monday night in an email to law students. >“Today, Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered,” Catherine Claypoole of the law school curriculum committee wrote in an email to students Monday night. >Hundreds of Harvard Law School graduates had signed a letter calling on the school to rescind Kavanaugh’s appointment as lecturer at the school, following sexual misconduct allegations against the U.S. Supreme Court nominee.
>>176703 It just fucking gets worse & worse. In a just world there'd be laws preventing people's lives from the ability to be nuked by mere fucking allegations.
>>176710 >I wonder if the snowflakes actually have any inkling of the precedence they are setting In terms of how it could affect THEM, of course not. They REEEEEEEEE'd & mentally gymnasted the fuck out of the Gunn situation to make it the fault of the use & intent of the precedent they'd set, rather than it being a shit precedent biting them in the ass. They'll either do the same shit when this one starts to, or you'll see them instantly drop whoever from their side gets railroaded like this at fucking lightspeed, while defending the precedent itself.
Mitch McConnell made a statement yesterday about the entirety of the Kavanaugh nomination process, the obvious duplicity by Senate Democrats and the purpose behind it, the absence of any credibility to the allegations as attested by Mitchell (the independent counsel who questioned Ford and Kavanaugh), and made numerous predictions with regard to how Democrats are attempting to move the goalposts further and further. He concluded by stating in no uncertain terms that he was going to call a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination - regardless of the spin that Democrats and the media put on it ('he drank/drinks beer!' or 'he's too angry to be a Supreme Court Justice!') - this week. https://youtu.be/C-5NrtTZPRM McConnell starts at ~12:00 (skip Schumer, it will only make you mad).
I was reading a lefty forum earlier to see their view, and it's weird. They ofcourse blindly believe Ford. Kavanaugh in their eyes is an obvious liar and cruel alcoholic because of some nonsense about ice cubes and beer. I can't begin to follow their train of thought.
This little gem got a bunch of agrees/up votes (everything bellow this line is a quote incase phone posting fucks up the greentext formatting): >Think about all the plans that Trump has floated that he could not really accomplish with Kennedy on the court but now with Kavanaugh he can. >Total reversal of Roe vs Wade >Internment camps for Muslim Americans (in addition to the ones that he already has for immigrants). >Death penalty for drug dealers >Permanently remove 3-4 million Democratic voters from the rolls. >Complete shutdown of all FBI investigations against Republicans >Ignoring presidential term limits
>And these are just the ones he has already thought of. We are entering a new phase here with this nomination, and I do not expect it to end in my lifetime.
how fucking detached from reality are these people?
>>176774 >how fucking detached from reality are these people? This is what happens when all the news they get is from post and reposts in their facebook feed, and they also blindly believe all that their "friends" post. In other words the only thing tethering them to the real world is that they might know they need to eat food once in a while.
>>176774 This is all right in line with the kind of melodramatic fearmongering they've been circlejerking since before he was even elected. Like the impeachment, he'll get around to all of this any day now….
>>176792 What really perplexes me was this claim : >Permanently remove 3-4 million Democratic voters from the rolls.
What did he mean by that? I have no clue. You don't need to be a registered Democrat to vote for them, so it couldn't be wiping the dems registry (which he can't do anyway).
Are these permanently removed voters illegal immigrants that are being deported? As non-citizens, they never had the right to vote in the first place. Any votes that they cast are a prime example of voter fraud.
Was he proposing that voters will need to re-register as voters? That wouldn't be permanent removal of dem voters, unless we're talking about the scores of deceased who keep voting blue and who can't re-register because they're no longer of this world. Is this about voter ID? I've yet to find a poor person who doesn't have ID. They don't have jobs, so they had time to sit around the courthouse to get one. They also needed one to sign up for gibsmedats.
I honestly have no clue what he means by that, since there is nothing Trump can do to stop US citizens from voting for whichever party that they please. My only conclusion is that he must subconsciously believe in rampant voter fraud in favor of the Dems, and that anti-fraud measures would permanently strip the dems of millions of votes.
>>176798 Yes, I think it is the all about the idea that "Voter ID" is racist, and Trump want the US to be like every other democracy on earth and require voters to have some form of valid identification. That and the InfoWars article that "3 million votes in presidential election cast by illegal aliens".
I think it basically all boils down to the fact that Democrats want every "immigrant" in a sanctuary city to be able to vote (as long as it is for the Democratic party). It is the notion that "no human is illegal" nonsense and add in some batshit mental gymnastic and it probably makes sense to them. I don't think they believe it is voter fraud (or at least they can't admit it). They somehow have to make the votes cast by undocumented and illegal immigrants valid or they will loose every future election.
>>177005 I might be missing something, and I hope you can clarify. But the only way I see that this would take down Feinstein is if they manage to prove she leaked the document. I am not sure how Hillary coordinating all the attacks on Kavanaugh in the Judicial Committee would be violating any laws. All the members on the Democratic sides would be cucks for doing so, as they already are, but not sure if it would be illegal in any way. And unless they manage to prove that Hillary hired, convinced, or forced, Ford to present these false accusations against Kavanaugh she would also steer clear of any troubles in this regard. >I hope I am wrong, and that there is something I am overlooking
The memo from Kavanaugh should anyway be a clear indication on his feelings towards sexual predators like William "Bill" Clinton
>Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is asking for Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, to turn over notes from her therapy sessions and recordings of the lie detector test she took. >Grassley made the request in a letter sent to Ford's attorneys on Tuesday night, according to The Wall Street Journal. The letter also asks for exchanges she's had with the media, and says that he is making the request because her sexual assault claim has "put Judge Kavanaugh on trial before the nation." >The Journal noted that Grassley also questioned the truthfulness of Ford's testimony in the letter. >Ford told senators she only discussed the lie-detector test with her lawyers. She also said she did not receive any tips on how to pass a polygraph. >Grassley said in the letter that the committee had received a sworn statement from an unidentified ex-boyfriend of Ford's that raised "specific concerns about the reliability of her polygraph examination results." >The former boyfriend reportedly told the committee that he dated Ford from 1992 to 1998 and that he witnessed Ford, a psychologist, once help a friend prepare to take a lie-detector test.
>>177008 Well during the hearing, she said that no one had helped her prepare to take a polygraph, and that was technically probable. However, has anyone forgotten that she's a psychology professor? She knows all about body language, tone, inflection, micro-expressions, and yes, polygraph analysis. Its based on detectable stress levels, which can be spoofed or faked or masked. That's why they are unreliable and inadmissible in court, but thats also why the democrats have tried to make this the court of public opinion (read: Social Justice), where 'passing a lie detector' is translated into "Nevar lies evar".
>>177009 See this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGxr1VQ2dPI
Ford is definitely trained to produce a favorable response in the layman but not to the extent she can fool a professional. The Republicans know this and that's why the prosecutor is being just as manipulative.
>>177011 Mah nigga. I posted that video here >>176039 the day after the hearing. Mandy is my favorite body language analyst, she's in usual form on this one and everyone following the Kavanaugh saga should watch at least the first few minutes of it. But yes, and I retract my earlier statements about how Ford was questioned. On re-analysis there is no way out of this one other than bullshit distractionary tactics (wait for it) by the left and the media. Mrs. Mitchell was quite precise and particular about the questions she asked, which the new sworn statement by Ford's ex-boyfriend expressly refutes pertaining to both knowledge of how polygraph analysis works (duh, psychology professor), as well as whether she ever had been coached or had coached anyone about them. Sadly, I fear that Jeff Flake will live up to his name, and that Collins and Merkowski are either RINOs or just plain gullible (read: stupid).
>Senate Republicans are stepping up efforts to challenge Christine Blasey Ford’s credibility by confronting her with a sworn statement from a former boyfriend who took issue with a number of assertions she made during testimony before the Judiciary Committee last week. >Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa and the committee chairman, cited the former boyfriend’s statement in a letter sent Tuesday night to Dr. Blasey’s lawyers demanding that they turn over material that could be used to assess her veracity. >The former boyfriend told the Judiciary Committee that he witnessed Dr. Blasey helping a friend prepare for a possible polygraph examination, contradicting her testimony under oath. Dr. Blasey, a psychology professor from California who also goes by her married name Ford, was asked during the hearing whether she had “ever given tips or advice to somebody who was looking to take a polygraph test.” She answered, “Never.” >“I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam,” the man said in the statement. “Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam.” >Ms. McLean, a former F.B.I. agent, denied the assertion on Wednesday. “I have never had Christine Blasey Ford, or anybody else, prepare me, or provide any other type of assistance whatsoever in connection with any polygraph exam I have taken at any time,” she said in a statement. >Although the man’s name and hometown were redacted from the copy of the statement, which was dated Tuesday, a person informed about the matter identified him as Brian Merrick. A profile of Dr. Blasey in The Wall Street Journal last month said she met Mr. Merrick while pursuing a master’s degree at Pepperdine University. She was “sweet, cute and with a good attitude,” he told the newspaper. >In his letter on Tuesday night, Mr. Grassley confronted Dr. Blasey’s lawyers about the contradiction between Mr. Merrick’s statement and her testimony. “This statement raises specific concerns about the reliability of her polygraph examination results,” he wrote, requesting her lawyers turn over any audio or video recordings of the polygraph that Dr. Blasey took about her allegation against Judge Kavanaugh in August. “The Senate therefore needs this information.” >Mr. Merrick took issue with Dr. Blasey’s professed fear of flying and of confined spaces, noting that they once traveled around the Hawaiian islands in a propeller plane. “Dr. Ford never indicated a fear of flying,” he wrote. “To the best of my recollection Dr. Ford never expressed a fear of closed quarters, tight spaces, or places with only one exit.” >While she testified that she once insisted on building a second front door in her house because of the trauma of her encounter with Judge Kavanaugh, Mr. Merrick said he helped her find a place to live in California “in a very small, 500 sq. ft. house with one door.” >He also wrote that they broke up “once I discovered that Dr. Ford was unfaithful” and that she continued to use a credit card they shared nearly a year he took her off the account. “When confronted, Dr. Ford said she did not use the card, but later admitted to the use after I threatened to involve fraud protection,” he said. >In his letter to Dr. Blasey’s lawyers, Mr. Grassley also demanded copies of notes taken by her therapist, portions of which The Washington Post reported that she had provided one of its reporters. And he asked for any other records of her communications with the Post reporter who first interviewed her. “Your failure to provide the entirety of Dr. Ford’s correspondence with The Post again suggests a lack of candor,” he wrote.
>Senators will view FBI report on Kavanaugh Thursday >Senators are being told that they will get to review a supplemental FBI background investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday, but only one copy is being made available to senators under restricted conditions. >Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.), a member of the Judiciary Committee, said that preparations are being made to review the report on Thursday. >Only one copy is being made available to senators, and each party will take turns viewing it in one-hour increments, Durbin said. >"Get this - one copy! For the United States Senate," he said. "That's what we were told. And we were also that we would be given one hour for the Dems, one hour for the Republicans. Alternating. >A senior Democratic aide confirmed the restrictions being placed on viewing the FBI report Thursday. >If all 100 senators decide to review the document and it takes each senator 30 minutes to peruse the document, it could take 50 hours for the entire chamber to examine it. >"Do the math," said Durbin. "That's a lot of time." >A GOP spokesman for the Judiciary Committee declined to comment on the Democratic pushback. >Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said he expects senators will be able to review the FBI report in the "secure compartmented information facility" in the Capitol Visitor Center, since the space is large enough to hold a large group of senators.
