The confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court is to kick off today.
The hearings are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, with opening statements by committee members.
The hearing can be followed on C-SPAN (open link as networkstream in VLC "Media > Open Network Stream…")http://cspan1-lh.akamaihd.net/i/cspan1_1@304727/index_1000_av-p.m3u8
>Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings launch amid partisan fireworks, high stakes for Supreme Court>The Senate Judiciary Committee launches confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday, kicking off what is expected to be a bitterly partisan gauntlet as Democrats vow to scrutinize his lengthy record as an appellate judge and lawyer in the Bush administration.>Last month, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., accused anyone who supports Kavanaugh of being "complicit in evil.">But Kavanaugh steadily has gathered support from legal circles, former colleagues and Republican lawmakers. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, called him "perhaps the most qualified person ever nominated to the Supreme Court.">The judge's nomination, though, will ultimately succeed or fail depending on a handful of swing-vote senators, including vulnerable red-state Democrats and moderate pro-choice Republicans who have all said that they would withhold judgment on the nominee.>Republicans command a narrow 50-49 Senate majority, which would return to 51-49 once a Republican successor to the late Sen. John McCain is appointed. Republicans have little margin for error, though Vice President Pence can break a tie. http://archive.is/Q3HdX
>trying to fucking adjourn before the committee is even in session
Welp, the Democrats are already coming off as professional
It is hopefully going to be a fun shitshow, but the democrats will just bitch and moan all the time like they did during the hearing of Strzok.
Isn't democrats bitching and moaning a given?
In all seriousness, I'm hoping it'll go well.
True, and I wholeheartedly agree, and hope it goes orderly.
Sadly the democrats will use their question time to do political statements instead of asking questions.
I'm just supprised the hecklers haven't said shit yet.
>"That's a rate of 7000 pages an hour, that's super human"
>Implying multiple people can't read at the same time
I think they all were thrown out at the start. They started their "protests" too soon; shame they didn't have time to chant "this is what democracy looks like" in an attempt to stop senate doing their job.
They also apparently assume all those pages were written in 10pt font size and filling all pages with text.
I bet at lest 10% of those pages were cover letters (should not take more than a couple of seconds to read those). Then at least 50% were couple of lines of text.
Watch leftards screech about how civility is a racist concept.
Gosh these fools are loud.
Loud, and you can't even understand what they're saying.
They're just salty because they're getting politically skullfucked.
This confirmation will effectively neuter (((progressive activism))) in the Supreme Court for decades to come.
If we also get Ginsburg switched out America will truly have a very bright future ahead of itself.
Oh, there will be SALT if Ginsberg kicks the bucket during a Republican term.
I wonder how many justices the Democrats will add to the supreme court if they ever get to power again.>my bet is two liberals at least (perhaps three if they feel bold)>>169431
Jesus Christ, watching fictional drama really isn't healthy for leftists, especially leftist women.
They must be practicing for when the Muslims they love so much take over and enslave them, because the show is basically the same thing.>I wonder how many justices the Democrats will add to the supreme court if they ever get to power again.
I've seen cries to pack the court all over social media in my salt mines. Liberals have no standards when it comes to the judiciary; they only see the Court as a means to push their progressive agendas on issues they could never win in Congress and warp existing laws to their liking, not as a means to protect the Constitution as written.
All they're doing is screeching at the court and making fools of themselves.
Just a big fat embarrassment.
Why are there never any qhite men in full SS uniforms at these things?
That they are. Sadly they think stopping democratic processes is what real democracy looks like.
Looks like a swarthy italo semitic mongoloid
So what are the chances the dems are able to block this guy? I know committee approval is required to allow the president's nominees for justices, but as far as I know there isn't a lot of contention surrounding these choices typically. Is it up to a committee vote?
I will say Zero chance. As long as the Republicans vote to confirm Kanvanaugh he will have enough voted (with Pence tie breaker vote) to confirm him. At least that is what I have understood.
Cory Booker is the biggest idiot I've ever had the displeasure of hearing in my life.
Agree. It is fun how the democrats "thinks" if Kavanaugh is elected the negros have to sit in the back of the bus again.>not that I don't hope they are right
Fuck, this Harris lady is really
pushing that statement I made. They're just so fucking stupid.
lol.. I wonder what tomorrow will bring when they are suppose to start asking Kavanaugh questions.
Beuacratic bullshit has left me in a position today where all that I could do was hurry up and wait. To pass the time, I turned on fox's stream.
>Booker (D-NJ): The founding documents of U.S. don't mean much when the people don't have faith in them.
Commies get out! Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
She's a mexican-Jewish mutt, and they still blew their tops when they saw it.
I'm rather impressed by the success of this meme. I guess it helps that leftists have been grasping at straws so much lately.
Sorry for my ignorance but what exactly is this supposed to be? They remind me of pilgrims but instead of black, they wear red. The color red reminds me a bit of the scarlet letter. So pilgrims that committed adultery are protesting the Supreme Court Justice? Seriously how is a protest like this supposed to work if no one gets the reference?
It's a show about a dystopian future where women in the west are treated like property.
It's called The Handmaid's Tale.
>>169569>The Handmaid's Tale.
Had to wiki it to learn more, for a dystopian future, the pilgrim get up is quite odd. Though this is sorta funny what exactly are these people protesting? That Kavanaugh is going to enslave all women and make them sex slaves? or did I miss something? Taking away womans rights (because the dems push this roe vs wade bs all the time with every republican)
Leftists liken not being able to kill their fetuses to slavery.
Wait can you rephrase that?
You saying that the left rather Kill(abort) a child than raise them into slavery? What, they think that childbirth is slavery to a child? That a family is slavery?
Is this seriously what they believe? If they want the sex and not the child why don't they castrate themselves? Seriously.
I mean that they percieve the prospect of not having access to abortion as men trying to "own their bodies". The slavery crap is just a baseless slippery slope argument, and an excuse to cosplay.
To any women out there, boy is this stupid. Just as we know it is wrong to steal and to kill, we are told by others that this is wrong and others tell them and a high power tells them. We all have free will but just because you have the "will" to do something doesn't mean that we are going to make it any more easy for you to do so. No one owns anyone for not stealing, killing or being dishonable to their parents.
So to the woman whom are this stupid, fuck off.
Really I can only laugh at such stupidity. Yeah the whole abortion argument. "My womb my rules, I can evict who I want." Yeah it isn't a house for one and women treat it as such. They are destroying a life and is what I find so horribly disturbing. So many try to argue and tieing religion to it as well. Though if not for a higher power telling you that murder is wrong then obviously, well look at the example godless women committing murder.
Feminists see reality through eight layers of hysteria. If you took even half of what the (((Legacy media))) has been saying seriously, you'd think the world was ending.
That, and they think showing up to these kinds of things will be something to brag about to their friends.
One hour till day two is about to start. Today the politicians are suppose to ask questions. But we will likely get long speeches from Democrats about how Trump is literally Hitler and Kananaugh is akin to Mengele in a judicial position.
The hearing is going to be aired on CSPAN3http://cspan3-lh.akamaihd.net/i/cspan3_1@304729/index_200_av-p.m3u8
There is a preshow right now on CSPAN1 for those interestedhttp://cspan1-lh.akamaihd.net/i/cspan1_1@304727/index_200_av-p.m3u8
>>169580>either layers of hysteria
first time hearing that. Seriously is this like the 5 stages of grief?
*Eight* I have no idea how it came out either.
It's a hyperbole. They're just hysterical and detatched from reality.
Oh gosh, I don't even know what to call it. Mass hysteria, close but not quite. I mean this isn't just a small group within a certain area or confinded it wide spread where no matter what they so whole heartedly believe that no matter what, Trump should not be president. No logic, nothing. It is frightening how far gone they are and how childish they become. Even down right cartoonish. Like that CNN report with that Paris guy and cia guy.
Dayum… I thought for a moment he was about to quack off like donald duck.
So what are you guys' thoughts on Kavanaugh? I pretty much know nothing about him other than the dems hate him. Is there a good place to go and look at any of his past rulings to get an idea of how he will be as a justice?
Not sure, but this site might be a start to dig furtherhttps://www.archives.gov/news/topics/kavanaugh-records>there is probably an easier source out there somewhere
He seems decent enough. He has a good record, and he seems to interpret the Constitution as it was meant to be read. I think he'll fill the seat in well, and he'll probably stop any of the progressive activist bullshit currently plaguing the American judiciary from creeping into the Supreme Court.
Cher can be glad she has others to write her songs because she sure can write for shit.
But on another note the first part has gone better than what I expected. The Democrats have for the most part been behaving.
And the hearing has started again (after a little meal break).
I want to believe…
How many times does Kavanaugh have to remind the dems that a judge's job is to read and follow the law as written and not to bend it around how he feels?
It would do them no good to obstruct at this point.
If they could be convinced so easily, they wouldn't be progressives.
The court for them is just a way of sneaking in legislation that they can't passed through traditional means.
All in favor of making this the official welcoming image?
>cosplayers keep heckling
They clearly just need a good dicking down. Why else dress like that?
Lol, the last woman who was thrown out.>we will not go back, we will not go ba….>then police just pushed out of the door, didn't even escort her out
lol. Impeaching a supreme court judge because he was confirmed by the senate. Only leftists can come up with those kind of "reasonings"-
>>169644>feminists selling their bodies
Hopefully this will make the legal statute that she (and all the other) is charged with more severe and carried a hefty jail time.
This bitch is pissing me off.
>dumb bitch doesn't understand the concept of precedent
I really want to read something into Cruz drinking a White Dr Pepe

>"That's not a law professor though."

Why is he wearing a condom to promote abortions?
This motherfucker doesn't understand what the word "executive" means.
>yes or no
They're dressing it up as a question of character/values, but they're really just trying to see how he'd rule on a case.
I think his responses have been very professional so far.
very much so
this is clearly bait
this cannot be real
this is a /pol/ack larping
>nothing you said today gave me comfort
Because you kept interrupting him nigger!
That's the thing: this USED to be parody, but the left has gotten so batshit insane, they've become parody in itself. You literally can't tell the different anymore between the real thing and the fakes, even those made by your own people.
Pretty sad that we have crazy gay niggers in congress. Like wtf
This court hearing is pissing me off.
It's just one loaded bait-question after another; and they keep interrupting him trying to get their soundbites.
I genuinely want to hear what this guy has to say, and they're messing it up with their political cockdickery.
>YES OR NO QUESTION
These cunts need to be lined up against a wall and shot.
That's how the game is played.
Step 1: Setup a loaded bait question to try to bait a soundbite for (((CNN))).
Step 2: If he doesn't take the bait, interrupt him and move on to the next question. DO NOT allow a soundbite of him BTFOING the questioner.
Repeat until he slips up.
I feel really bad for the guy
You can see it in his face that he's really tired of the bullshit.
He came fully prepared to demonstrate his impartiality and vast understanding of the law and court precedents, and they've repeatedly struck down his chances to share what he knows.
I'm more salty about how his daughters were in the room yesterday until their mother got them out of there. They were visibly upset at what their father was being put through.
I think that Kavanaugh himself fully understands what's going on and is prepared to weather the storm. They don't have shit on him, so he's golden so long as he doesn't lose his temper and slip up. But if you think this is bad, just wait for the next one when Ginsburg croaks. You won't need to turn on a stream to hear the salt. Just open a window and you'll hear the salt flow.
Oh, I can taste it now. Salt finer than the crystalized tears of six gorillion angels.
It's going to be a bloodbath.
Had to save the last part of day two till now..
Jesus Christ the Hawaiian bitch was a pain to listen to. No questions from her what so ever, only assertions and projections.
It will be a glorious day
>>169635>When is the time to stand up, and have our voice heard?<We've done nothing but screech and protest for two years and it hasn't accomplished anything! What should we do?^Maybe they didn't hear us, let's screech and protest even louder!
These people will never stop being funny to me. It's like watching a dog trying to get duct tape off its tail.
hahaha.. makes you wonder who would win of a monkey trying to write Shakespeare's complete works by randomly hammer on a typewriter, or a leftist trying to come up with a logical though given infinite time.
I will never cease to be amazed by the sheer amount of stupidity I saw in two days and the sad part is that I know it's going to be worst in the near future.
And we still have at least two more days of the confirmation hearing.
Day three starts today at same time 9:30am ET
Q points out something interesting: at 26mins in the video Kavanaugh is questioned about US citizens acting as enemies to the US gov and the difference in law that causes.

Interesting line of questions?
Military Law v. Criminal Law.
Think HRC panic.
Do you believe in coincidences?
You have more than you know.
He actually has watched MLP. Once when talking with a little girl on his campaign trail he asked "Who's your favorite My Little Pony? I like Fluttershy."
Sadly I can't find the clip on Jewtube because results are flooded with fake news.
Day 3 has begun and Cory Booker is already dropping IQs around the nation
And Dick Blumenthal is trying to adjourn again…
I fear I don't have enough booze or more importantly blood to dilute to be able to do that in any "healthy" way.
They won't. They're pissing on him out of spite just because they can.
As AnCapAnon said >>169790
we can hope. I hope the Republicans put hard to hard and call the Democrats on their game of chicken and take it all the way and make them loose their seat in the senate. The more democrats thrown out the more special elections that will need to be held to replace them.>not that I know the exact process that will follow
Oh fuck Grassley actually laying them the fuck down, that was impressive.
>there is no rule
Then there is no issue, goddammit!
Cory "PLEASE MAKE ME A MARTYR" Booker
>Cory Brooker is sacrificing his career to be salty
The current state of the Democratic party
Motherfucker wants to be president. Being removed from office for disclosing confidential documents would prevent him from holding public office. He really did not think this through.
It's just unbelievable how these are many of the same people who just hand-waved away every point about HRC's emails, emails on a private, non-secure server where we know for a fact many were classified, we know for a fact that Obama communicated with her this way, we know for a fact that it did indeed jeopardize national security.
But in the case of Kavanaugh, they have been told a hundred times that they are asking for every single document that crossed the desk of a secretary for Bush, documents that would span everything from birthday cards to lunch menus to classified information. They have had this explained over and over and they just plug their ears and whine about it because they know they can do nothing.
Republicans fuck things up a lot, and lots of them are corrupt. But every single fucking democrat here is completely and wholly corrupt and hypocritical to boot. They don't give a fuck about American citizens, they don't care about anything but power. Every one of them should hang.
See, there's such a thing as a sensible republican but not a sensible democrat.
Senate Rule 29.5:https://www.rules.senate.gov/rules-of-the-senate>Any Senator, officer, or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate, including the business and proceedings of the committees, subcommittees, and offices of the Senate, shall be liable, if a Senator, to suffer expulsion from the body; and if an officer or employee, to dismissal from the service of the Senate, and to punishment for contempt.
And the protesters are back
>VOTE NO ON KAVA NO
My favorite so far is the "woman" who screeched "shame" in overly hight pitch as she was shoveled out.
what they're saying?
They make it so fucking obvious that they are being paid to be there
>>169819muh fucking sides>>169821
It's kinda fun to watch a shitshow knowing that outcome.
Left = feelings
Right = thought
It's a fundamental distinction.
you know he had to do it to em
he posted confidential documents online? also all this seems to be is a legal discussion about the potential legal repercussions of laws regarding racial discrimination and at worst kavanaugh seems to be arguing for taking a "race blind" or rather neutral approach to the way the government and supreme court handles things. What's cory's point here exactly?
were these declassified? this sounds obviously illegal
I wonder if 'CNN will take the stand that illegally obtained documents is illegal to report on and even read.
I think Lehay is starting to loose it, perhaps senility is setting in. Now he is starting to talk about adding Evidence into the record like this is a trial.
>S T O L E
I so hope the Republicans show backbone and throw them out of the senate>if an officer or employee, to dismissal from the service of the Senate, and to punishment for contempt
I also hope Kavanaug after confirmed will be one of the Supreme Court judges that hammers in the final nail sending them to jail
>if you just say what I want I'll let you talk
How about FUCK YOU Lindsey Graham.
What is she seriously saying because I dont speak emoji.
it's a shame but apparently there might not be grounds to apparently these documents were actually declassified and cleared for release this morning and he made an ass out of himself for no reason
It is probably the next best thing.
I wonder if they can get them on some kind of technicality because they thought they were breaking the rules on purpose
doesn't everything trigger mass protests these days? these faggots are so found of referencing fiction have they ever read the boy who cried wolf?
>John McCain watched CNN during Senate lunches
Well that explains a fair bit of character.
>>169872>had brain cancer>watched CNN
really percolates my pecans
Like a good leftists they only want judges that will bend to the leftist agenda no matter what the law says. In good communist tradition there must be no separation of legislative and judicial.
how many episodes of rick and morty do you have to watch in order to understand the supreme court?
>You're a murderer
What did she mean by this?
>tfw he brought the whole fuckin' crew so that the dems look like shit when they're rude to him in front of all those young women
>>169862>he made an ass out of himself for no reason
Don't make the mistake of thinking that everyone on their side is just stupid. The staggering number of legitimate idiots on their side can lull you into a false sense of security that the devious ones can exploit. This looks like it was carefully calculated.
>Booker releases confidential documents to fight Kavanaugh>(((media))) and leftists swoon. How brave, what a risk. He's a martyr who's willing to risk it all to stop Hitler.>lol no, this shit was technically cleared moments ago. Booker isn't risking jack shit.>the headline painting him as taking a bullet for our democracy already went to print. This inconvenient detail will be on page 12 in size 2 font.>what was in the documents? Let us at (((CNN))) summarize the legalese for you: It says here that Kavanaugh is racist.
They will blame Kavanaugh for using them as human shield by inviting the team to come and see democracy in practice from front row.

INGSOC, Ingland(England)Socialism. I laugh that even socialists call themselves fascists. The absolute state of the left.
I really want to know who this girl is supposed to be because I can't stop laughing how based she is.
I was under the impression that she's one of Kavanaugh's aids.
Booker is such a flaming faggot, holy shit.
These people are way too concerned with this judge. Even IF Roe v. Wade is overturned states will likely just put in place their own local laws. That is literally worst case scenario for them.
The left is best at taking mountains out of molehills. They just can't stand to witness a single victory for Conservatives.
Watching Trumps speech on Fox News and at 8:10pm MT there was this one guy in plaid that was "replaced" by a girl wearing a black dress. She looks like this person,seriously is it?
I got a headache just from reading the first few lines of that.
Alright, related note: one of the few things me and my centrist mother can agree on is Roe v. Wade, and we both think it needs to go. She doesn't think, however, that even with Kavanaugh going through that it will ever get brought up before the Supreme Court let alone get reversed.
So, what are the chances of Roe v. Wade getting nuked?
If it's ever going to happen, it probably won't be very soon. Give it a decade and make something will boil up.
Liberals act like the world will end next week, but that's not how the court system works.
>>169959>So, what are the chances of Roe v. Wade getting nuked?
Pretty slim, honestly. The Supreme Court usually doesn't revisit cases that it's already decided unless a new case comes through that challenges it again.
Even if it gets overturned all it means is things just go back to how they were previously, which is that states can pass their own abortion laws. I'm guessing most red states would make it illegal or restrict it, but I doubt any of the blue states would. Federal funding to Planned Parenthood could also realistically get cut at some point, but that has nothing to do with Roe v. Wade. So absolute worst case scenario for left wing sloots who want an abortion is they might have to take a road trip to California or NY and pay for it themselves, nbd. Hardly justifies all their wailing and screeching over it.
Really, reading all the salt screencaps in this thread has just made me lose even more respect for these people, which I didn't even think was possible at this point. I'm just amazed that people this uninformed about current events could possibly get this worked up over them. They literally are just giant, overgrown children who cry and wail and act like the sky is falling every time they don't get their way. I honestly can't believe I share a country with these imbeciles.
The right to vote should really be restricted to people who can demonstrate that they at least understand the issues they're voting on.
>>169959> what are the chances of Roe v. Wade getting nuked?
Really close to zero. They are completely detached from reality. In their mind, if we aren't sucking their dicks then we must be plotting to holocaust them.
Day 4 of the Kavanaugh hearing today will be consisting of legal experts and others testifying on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.
The hearing is scheduled to start 9:20am ET on CSPAN2http://cspan2-lh.akamaihd.net/i/cspan2_1@304728/index_200_av-p.m3u8http://cspan2-lh.akamaihd.net/i/cspan2_1@304728/index_1000_av-p.m3u8
The vote is today, right?
Not sure, looks like the vote will be held on Spt. 20th>Senate Republicans laid out a fast schedule Tuesday for action on Judge Brett Kavanaugh, setting up a Sept. 20 vote in committee which would be followed by action on the full Senate floor the final week of the month.>Barring hiccups, that schedule would put Judge Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court before its Oct. 1 start of the new session.http://archive.is/piPcP
Or military tribunals are coming.
Booker is so full of shit…
time to call ICE
Checking an accurate rendition of Brook.
y'know I'm sorta impressed the whole "drag them along kicking and screaming" is just an expression but the left actually managed to convince a bunch of women to actually kick, scream, and get dragged around on television while they continue to lose
It is top notch entertainment seeing them being thrown out. I like to imagine they are immediately bound and gagged once out of sight as their screams of "shame" and "vote no" stops so abruptly once out of sight.
>Top Democrat refers confidential info about Kavanaugh of a sexual nature to FBI
>Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., confirmed Thursday that she had referred information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to "federal investigative authorities.">“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities,” said Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination next week.>Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats met on Wednesday night to discuss a vague sexual misconduct allegation against Kavanaugh dating back to his high school days, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
>Feinstein had been in possession of the letter for some period of time, two sources said, but the matter was not referred to the FBI until after the Democratic meeting on Wednesday evening. The meeting was called because members of the committee had heard rumors of the letter’s existence from reporters, one source told NBC News.>White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said Thursday that Feinstein should have raised the information earlier in the nomination process.>"Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him," Kupec said, accusing Democrats of an "11th-hour attempt to delay" Kavanaugh a seat on the high court. "Throughout 25 years of public service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has thoroughly and repeatedly vetted Judge Kavanaugh, dating back to 1993, for some of the most highly sensitive roles.">The controversy comes after a marathon series of hearings for Kavanaugh’s nomination last week in which he testified for two days before the Judiciary panel. The committee was originally scheduled to vote on his nomination Thursday morning, though it has now been delayed until next week on Sept. 20.http://archive.is/zyoLK
Fucking leftists and their distracting lies.
They're just grasping at straws now. Anything to delay or delegitimize Kavanaugh's confirmation even the slightest bit.
I wonder if people will start sending anonymous messages to Feinstein en mass>"I want to stay anonymous so I wondered if you could contact the FBI on my behalf and report that something happened that might have had a sexual nature, but I don't want to say what, at some time many many moons ago involving someone"
They really have no standards whatsoever.>>171299
That implies that Democrats are willing to drink their own coolaide, but it could be interesting to see how they respond if multiple allegations sprung up accusing Democrat politicians of sex crimes 40 years ago.
They're trying to pull a fast-one. The right to confront one's accusers is a less-appreciated but equally important constitutional right, and they're further trying to push the idea that awkward flirting and approaches (dude was in high school) constitutes sexual assault, as they have been on college campuses (that being the origin of the 1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted on a college campus).
They know they can't win with any legitimacy against Kavanaugh, so instead they're keeping the propaganda going on all the batshit lefties that are
following/playing along with their overall narrative, and they'll be pushing this heavily in the upcoming and future elections, especially in areas/ways where the popular vote can't be countered by an electoral college.
I'm going to be very disappointed in this country if they allow this bullshit to delay the confirmation.
I am not surprised.
It will likely end with her not wanting to say who else was "in the room" so no one can give their version, and it will be her word against "what the hell are you talking about woman" and the leftists will believe her.
What I hate about this is that it doesn't really matter how bullshit that the claim is. The claim doesn't need to hold up in court, it simply needs to give RINOs an excuse to be turncoats.
Rinos will be the death of this country.
>Hearing Set for Monday to Hear Kavanaugh and His Accuser
>The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, under mounting pressure from senators of his own party, will call President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, and the woman who has accused him of sexual assault before the committee on Monday for extraordinary public hearings only weeks before the midterm elections.>In setting the hearing, Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa, backed down from a committee vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination, planned for this Thursday, and pushed a confirmation once seen as inevitable into limbo.>The announcement of Monday’s hearing capped a tumultuous day in Washington, as senators of both parties absorbed the accusations against Judge Kavanaugh, who only last week seemed on a glide path toward confirmation. Dr. Blasey has said he sexually assaulted her at a social gathering in the 1980s when they were both teenagers. Judge Kavanaugh has categorically denied the accusations, which Dr. Blasey detailed in a letter sent in July to Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, who kept its existence secret until last week at Dr. Blasey’s request.http://archive.li/hxV2a
Great. So if they succeed in stopping Kavanaugh, they'll have stopped him. If they fail, they get to run with the narrative that Trump put a rapist on the supreme court. They tried this shit with Clarence Thomas, and luckily the left wasn't nearly as batshit insane as they were, but times have changed. There's a chance this could blow up in their face as it did with the reduction in majority for Legislative confirmation, but ffs this is absurd.
I don't think they will be able to stop the confirmation of Kanavnaugh. It will end up as he said, she said. And she won't name the others she claim was in the room because reasons. So the left will always say he is a rapist and have nothing real to back that claim up with.
But also according to Q post the leftists know it is a nothingburger and want to use it to blackmail the Trump administration >>172131
If she don't show up they should hold the vote to confirm instead of holding the hearing. Otherwise it will probably just be a public "hearing" where democrats will accuse Kavanaugh and demand he prove his innocence. Well the Democrats will do this anyway, but Ford will not have to answer questions or reiterate the accusations under oath.>>172200
This don't surprise me the slightest.
I hope she gets nailed for prejury after she testifies.
This is pure defamation.
She will probably not show up for the hearing from the look of it. She will therefor avoid perjury because she never came with the accusations under oath or was the one who called the FBI asking for them to investigate. She will still be liable for defamation.
I hope they just go forward with the bite if she doesn't show.
Agree. All the Democrats will have shown up to accuse Kavanaugh so they should be able to vote. They could probably stage a walkout, but this will just result in Kavanaugh being confirmed with no opposing votes. So the only way for them to all vote no as they are going to do anyway is to take part.

I agree 100%.
Holy shit, she's ancient.
The old lady can barely hold her head up.
Kek, this sounds like something from a badly written Anonfilly green.
It's amazing and sad that people fall for this shit. Right before a conservative is about to rise to a position of power, a bunch of sexual harassment charges from 30-40 years ago are "conveniently" brought to light all at once, all without any evidence whatsoever. It happened with Trump, then Roy Moore, and now Kavanaugh. It would be funny if leftists weren't stupid enough to actually believe it.
The group, Demand Justice, established in 2018, gets its money from the Sixteen Thirty Fund — and the Sixteen Thirty Fund received roughly $2.2 million from the Open Society Policy Center, one of Soros’ outlets, between the years of 2012 and 2016.
And Demand Justice’s entire mission is to advance a progressive agenda through the courts.
“[Our goal is to] sensitize rank-and-file progressives to think of the courts as a venue for their activism and a way to advance the progressive agenda,” DJ’s executive director, Brian Fallon, said to The New York Times.
But that’s not all.
Debra Katz, the attorney representingKavanaugh’s accuser — Christine Blasey Ford — is vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight, an organization that has been directly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
Katz is also a hefty Democratic donor, giving thousands of dollars over the years to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other leftist candidates.
I'm not sure if they're stupid enough to believe it, or just corrupt enough to go along with it so long as it isn't directed at themselves.
They are spinning this as if Ford is "on the run" from "evil death threats." They're using every excuse in their playbook.
Hope the Republicans calls Ford out for her obstruction of justice. And that the only reason she refuse to testify is because she is lying about the whole incident.>>172290

The FBI has already conducted and concluded 6 extensive background checks on Kavanaugh to date. These new allegations are A. something that would have had to have been officially reported a long time ago
to even be on
the background checks, B. occurred so long ago that they can't even be prosecuted if they were legitimate, C. have been denied by the individual who Ford claims is the sole and exclusive witness, D. involved alcohol in the first place (making her testimony incredible, as in not credible), and ultimately do not adjust your screens, its as blatant and transparent a political move as it appears to be.
Shit, I need to check and make sure everything's correct before I post, next time.
She's fucking lying.
She thought she could weaponize the energy behind #metoo to soil his reputation, but then Republicans called the Dremocrats' bluff, and want her to testify so that they can prove that Kavanaugh is a vanilla, straight-laced Biblecamp boy. If she shows up, she'll have to testify under oath and potentially face perjury trials if she says anything that they prove incorrect, so she's sittyit out so he'll confirmed, and Democrats will be able to screech about it for decades to come that Drumph appointment a rapist to the SCOTUS.
Huh, that's odd; my flag didn't show.
>>172319>Democrats will be able to screech about it for decades
You mean in a few weeks when they try to coerce suckers into voting for them in the midterm. There will be headlines about Republicans supporting accused sexual predators. Loads of bullshit headlines and suckers who never read the body of the article.
Glenn Beck (of all people) knocks it out of the park, from 2 days agohttps://youtu.be/Ts7-81uwe-I?t=5m15s
Skip to 5:15 if it doesn't automatically"… if you're 16-17 and you do something, you go to a juvenile court and you do your time and those records are sealed because we believe that you do stupid things when you are young and we don't hold that over your head for the rest of your life."
Whether the allegations are true (which, there's plenty above to cast lingering doubt that), he's being smeared for something that wouldn't even be public record if she had done her due diligence 36 years ago instead of waiting until it was politically expedient for a literal pink-hat-wearing (there's photos) anti-Trump advocate to try and obstruct this process.
Such offenses may not be held against you as an adult in the court of law, but they do continue to follow you around in the court of public opinion. The records may be sealed but word of mouth gets around, especially when the girl is an attention whore.
Facts, reason, and law don't matter here. This is purely a feelings based attack. This case cannot be disproven after all of these years, and they have been spending years to groom popular culture to assume that men are guilty until proven innocent in matters regarding sexual assault. They're not trying to build a case against Kavanaugh, they're trying to induce reflexive knee jerk responses.
This attack gives them many moves depending on how things play out.
1: it gives RINOs an excuse to vote against him. The normalfags in my life aren't paying attention to this process and will only hear the headlines around the result. If he loses the vote, they'll only hear about how Trump's nomination (they won't even know Kavanaugh's name) was voted down because a "brave' woman came forward with her rape story.
2: if Kavanaugh wins the vote, they'll have tons of soundbites to take out of context. They will not stop spewing headlines about how "Trump's FBI refused to investigate the sexual assault claims." It doesn't matter if the FBI refused legitimately due to statutes of limitations and lacking of jurisdiction to undertake the investigatation. Idiots don't know that and they'll only hear about how the investigation was refused.
3: armed with their soundbites, they'll try to mobilize midterm voters to "stop Trump and the evil sexual predators that he's putting in power"
This is about the midterms as much if not more so than it is about Kavanaugh himself. They are DESPERATE for their blue wave so that they can make an attempt to impeach Trump or at least stonewall everything that he's trying to do.
>>172449>they have been spending years to groom popular culture to assume that men are guilty until proven innocent
This is one of the things I loathe about leftists more than anything; it's the most blatantly unamerican narrative in the modern U.S. culture.
The notion of innocence until proven guilty is one of the things that has made our court system the envy of the entire world; and SJWs want to throw it away, just so they can lynch-mob anyone they're displeased with.
>GOP pushes to move forward with Kavanaugh confirmation if his accuser won't testify
> Republican lawmakers on Wednesday appear poised to move ahead with a confirmation vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is accused of sexually assaulting a woman while they were in high school, if the woman does not participate in a Senate hearing to air the allegation.>Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford indicated Tuesday night that she would not agree to attend the hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled for Monday under the current circumstances.
>The chairman responded to Ford's lawyers Wednesday afternoon in a letter in which he said again that FBI involvement is not needed and that the Senate doesn't have the power to authorize such an investigation.>"It is not the FBI’s role to investigate a matter such as this," Grassley wrote, saying the White House requests and provides FBI background investigation files to the Senate "as a courtesy to help us determine whether to confirm a nominee. The FBI does not make a credibility assessment of any information it receives with respect to a nominee.">"You have stated repeatedly that Dr. Ford wants to tell her story. I sincerely hope that Dr. Ford will accept my invitation to do so, either privately or publicly, on Monday. In the meantime, my staff would still welcome the opportunity to speak with Dr. Ford at a time and place convenient to her," said Grassley, echoing a statement by spokesman Garrett Ventry earlier Wednesday that the chairman was willing to send committee staff to speak to Ford in California "if that is what she prefers.”>Grassley also said that the committee has attempted to contact Ford's lawyers directly by phone and email "several times to schedule a call at a time convenient for you and your client. We thus far have not heard back from you with regard to that request." He said Ford would need to submit her biography and prepared testimony by Friday at 10 a.m. if she intends to testify Monday.
>Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, a possible no vote on Kavanaugh, tweeted Wednesday that she hopes Ford "will reconsider" the offer and testify on Monday: "It is my understanding that the Committee has offered to hold either a public or a private session, whichever would make her more comfortable," wrote Collins.>"After learning of the allegation, Chairman @ChuckGrassley took immediate action to ensure both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh have the opportunity to be heard, in public or private. Republicans extended a hand in good faith. If we don't hear from both sides on Monday, let's vote," Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., tweeted late Tuesday.>Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who sits on the judiciary committee, said in a Tuesday tweet: "When Dr. Ford came forward, I said that her voice should be heard and asked the Judiciary Committee to delay its vote on Judge Kavanaugh. It did so. I now implore Dr. Ford to accept the invitation for Monday, in a public or private setting. The committee should hear her voice."http://archive.li/R4pse

Glow in the darks are fucking with the system, Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
If that happens I really hope Trump choose a super conservative woman that wants to ban abortion and is a die hard creationist.
This is a test of Q predictions also:>POTUS: Judge K will be confirmed regardless…
I also think that there is no way for the democrats to actually hinder Kavanaugh from being confirmed for Supreme Court.
Why is that? Is there a vote? What is the ratio of D:R voters?
Because the Democrats enacted the nuclear option when Obama was president you only need an simple majority to confirm Kavanaugh. So because the Republicans have majority in both Senate and the House as long as all Republicans vote in favor of Kavanaugh he will be confirmed. This is also the reason the Democrats want to delay the vote till after the midterms. The democrats hope to take control of the Senate and be able to block the nomination.
The Senate Judiciary committee has 11R and 10D, including the committee chair. The Senate its self has 54R, 44D, and 2 Independents>>172540
Its a bigger issue than that. If the Democrats re-take the senate in November, they can potentially (and by their recent behavior, undoubtably would) block any
judge whom Donald Trump nominates for the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh included.
That is true. They can probably block most policies put forward too, forcing Trump to use executive orders to get anything done.
And the more executive orders he has to use, the more the left will use it against him and the right by turning the "Look, he's abusing executive orders!" claim back on us.
>>172695> "In my [Facebook] post, I was empowered"> I was empowered
Is this a new way to say "I was drunk and bullshitting"
OMG he likes women… with a certain look… OMG… he's .. he's …. normal! REEEE!
And we continue our rotation to fascism.
So the moment she had to stand by her words and what she wrote she retracted them.>>172704
If there is any truth to that he probably was looking for and wanted to hire women and not men who thought they were women.
Cuz BHO totally didn't go fucking nuts with EOs during his presidency
Hussein did not do anything besides signing EOs for 6 years (I think there was Democratic majority the first two years he was in office).
One of the top stories on Drudge
>If Senate Democrats and their media allies manage to destroy Brett Kavanaugh, they will bring America one step closer to a new, liberal style of totalitarianism.
>I don’t use the “T”-word lightly. I’ve spent years pushing back against those who fling it about in free societies like ours. But totalitarianism doesn’t require cartoonish, 1984-style secret police and Big Brother. The classical definition is a society where everything — ethical norms and moral principles and truth itself — is subjugated to political ends.
>By that measure, the Democratic campaign to block Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, based on ahazy, uncorroborated, decades-old assault allegation, tends toward the totalitarian. Certainly, it has many of the elements of abusive politics that Americans normally associate with foreign lands untouched by the light of liberty and reason:
>An (initially) anonymous accusation, surfaced at the 11th hour, seemingly calculated to strike terror into the hearts of Kavanaugh and his family members and supporters? Check! That came in the form of Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s cryptic statement last week, confirming that she had “received information from an individual concerning the nomination” of Kavanaugh but declining to offer any details.
>An accusation that’s impossible to rebut? Check! Senate Democrats aredemanding that the FBI look into the allegations firstbefore the Judiciary Committee holds a hearing. But Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, can’t remember the time or location of the alleged incident. An FBI probe is impracticable, not to mention improper given the lack of a federal crime.
>Kavanaugh’s integrity is thus besmirched, and the path to the only forum where he could clear his name is obstructed.
>A media mob that treats the mere existence of an accusation as proof of its veracity? Check! The examples of this are legion. My favorite came courtesy of the Atlantic writer who claimed that her own run-in with a pervert meant that Kavanaugh is also guilty. This, just a couple of years after Rolling Stone’s University of Virginia fiasco was supposed to have taught reporters a lesson about the importance of listening to the accused as well as the accusers.
>It didn’t have to be this way.
>Feinstein didn’t have to leak the anonymous accusation to the press, contrary to Ford’s wishes. Or she could have urged Ford to go public early, giving both parties enough time to be heard.
>Even now, Feinstein and her colleagues could back a committee hearing, without which Kavanaugh has no realistic opportunity for mounting a defense. Kavanaugh is a judge and a political operator. But he ‘s also a father and husband.
>But no. Senate Dems have settled on the ugliest means available, even by the standards of the body that added the verb “Borking” to our political vocabulary. The question is: Why have Republican high-court nominations brought out the worst from the left, going back to the Ronald Reagan era?
>The short answer is that liberals fear their major cultural victories of the past half-century are democratically illegitimate. Not a single one was won at the ballot box, going back to the Supreme Court’s 1965 Griswold decision, which recognized a constitutional right to contraceptives. From abortion to gay marriage, plus a host of less titillating issues, modern liberalism has lived by the Court. And liberals fear their cause will die by the Court.
>Unless, that is, they block conservative encroachments into the judiciary by all means necessary. Hence, Borking and Clarence Thomas-ing. And hence, too, the naked slandering of Mitt Romney in the course of the 2012 presidential campaign, to forestall his shifting the Court to the right.
>>172736>I wish I could say that the way out of this impasse is for the right to double down on the gentle conservatism represented by Romney, the Bush dynasty, and the late John McCain. Perhaps that is the right course in the long term. But for now, it is imperative for the health of American democracy to resist the liberal ruthlessness that is on display in the halls of the Senate.
>The verb “to Kavanaugh” must not be permitted to enter our lexicon, lest the step to unfreedom become irrevocable.
>Sohrab Ahmari is senior writer at Commentary and author of the forthcoming memoir of Catholic conversion, “From Fire, By Water.”
The good doctor now claims that she's willing to testify before the Senate if certain conditions are met
, but that testifying on Monday would be 'impossible',…reports the New York Times
who received an e-mail from Katz, the dyke-lookin' lawyer for the accuser. The lawyer claims that both sides of the Senate Judiciary were also notified.
>The woman who has accused Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual assault has told the Senate Judiciary Committee, in an apparent bid to jump-start negotiations, that she “would be prepared to testify next week,” so long as senators offer “terms that are fair and which ensure her safety,” according to an email her lawyers sent to committee staff members.>In the email, obtained by The New York Times, the lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford said that testifying Monday — the timetable Republicans have set for a hearing — “is not possible and the Committee’s insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event.” The lawyer reiterated that it is Dr. Blasey’s “strong preference” that “a full investigation” occur before her testimony — wording that stopped short of demanding an F.B.I. probe and suggested she is open to testifying without one.
>A spokesman for Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had no comment when asked if Mr. Grassley would agree to a date other than Monday.>“We’re glad to hear back, but that’s about the extent to which we can comment,” the spokesman, George Hartmann, said.http://archive.li/pHGWS
This fucking bitch…
This is a textbook picture of someone who views herself as "the cool wine aunt." Someone who has wasted her whole life on degeneracy and never found true happiness.
LOL public not falling for your shit anymore, Dems!
Wait, those numbers are from the huffington compost? BWAHAHAAHA. The "Blue Wave" is canceled.
The defendant always goes second.
This cunt is full of shit.
If democrats says her terms are reasonable they will show that they don't agree with due process. This will likely hurt the Democrats more than they realize. The moment they starts reeing that the demands was not met they will also have to explain why they think the demands were reasonable. And why due process and innocent until proven guilty is a bad concept in their mind.
You underestimate the arrogance of American liberals. I'm less confident that Democrats will be held accountable for this kikery.
It does send a very clear message to anyone with half a brain that Democrats couldn't care less about our rights though. The right to fair trail, the right to confront your accuser, the notion of innocence until proven guilty; none of those things matter to Democrats.
It is fun watching the faces of CNN "reporters" when they don't get the answers they want and can't push their skewed narrative.
