Will the SCOTUS Vote Commence as Scheduled?

Kavanaugh lined up the girls he coaches behind him, a protective shield against what he had to know would eventually be divulged.

Why would a Supreme Court Nominee repeatedly mention coaching his daughter’s all girl basketball team. He said it several times; he even introducing them all, by name… twice. Why? He was using these girls, because that’s what Brett Kavanaugh does and has done his whole life. He uses girls for his own design. He didn’t want us to figure that out though. He wanted us to think, “what an involved caring dad.” Maybe he thought their presence would keep the line of questioning subdued… innocent.

One of Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates, Deborah Ramirez, is the subject of a story in the New Yorker, by written by Jane Meyer and Ronan Farrow, published late last night.

Senate Democrats Investigate a New Allegation of Sexual Misconduct, from the Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s College Years, by His Yale Classmate Deborah Ramirez

Deborah Ramirez came forward with allegations of sexual assault against Judge Kavanaugh, and like Dr. Blasey Ford, she has requested an FBI investigation into the matter, and an investigation which must include witnesses.

The New Yorker article claims the GOP was notified of the pending allegations last week. Last night the GOP feigned surprise.

They’re acting surprised because this shines a new light on their bullying of Dr Blasey Ford on every level. Chuck GrASSley’s arbitrary deadlines to force her to testify immediately, or not at all, make sense. The letter, signed by 65 women who were not raped by Kavanaugh… they knew.

GrASSley, Lee, McConnell, Hatch, and the rest, wanted Kavanaugh confirmed before this New Yorker story came out.

These new allegations explain the abhorrent treatment of Dr Blasey Ford’s. The death threats that forced her and her family into hiding seem to have been designed, not only to unnerve her, but to frighten other victims from coming forward. Hacking into Dr Ford’s email in order to impersonate her was a character assassination designed to discredit her and demoralize anyone else who might be thinking of coming forward. These dual purpose attacks of the first victim were meant to push her to the point that she would decide not to testify, and to keep others quiet for fear of the same retribution.

What happens at Georgetown Prep…

These men with the majority in Congress did not expect Dr Ford to be so strong in her conviction. She has suffered untold consequences because of her attack, for over three decades.

Did they know there was a third allegation forthcoming?

Then there were three… at least. Michael Avenatti (Stormy Daniels attorney,) claims to have a credible client who will testify under oath that Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were known to throw group gatherings, during which he and his accomplices targeted underaged girls to ply with with alcohol, then take turns raping them. (allegedly)

The following details are difficult to read, but imagine the difficulty of living with the memory.

So many secrets.

The problem with this type of story is the majority of witnesses would be participants in the rapes. They would be destroying themselves by corroborating.

However, victims are witnesses. Anyone the victims spoke to is a witness. They need courage to come forward to take a stand against these powerful men.

Senator Lindsey Graham said yesterday “What do you expect me to do, destroy a man’s life because of allegations?”

Senator Graham is under duress. Clearly someone is holding something, a secret, over him.

America does not appoint a man like, a man who hates women, to the SUPREME COURT for a lifetime appointment.

And by the way, why are these men NOT CONCERNED WITH THE WOMENS DESTROYED LIVES?

Kavanaugh hates women. Do we need the swing vote on the Supreme Court to be a man accused of unspeakable crimes against women? He is a man with extreme views, ranging from birth control to abortion, to immigration. He has he lied to congress.

Remember this moment? He refused to shake hands or even engage in conversation with a man whose daughter was shot and killed during the mass shooting at Parkland High School in Florida.

Why hasn’t he withdrawn? Is it because he has assured Donald Trump his freedom from any possible future conviction on treason, or any impending conviction on obstruction of justice?

Call the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Tell them what you think of their nominee.

Game of Trump

Rod Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment – The New York Times

Everyone, even FAUX news, is reporting that this 👆🏼New York Times story is factually incorrect, and is a “set up,” dictated to NYTimes, who are either in on it or really bad at their job. Word is this gives Trump his excuse to fire Rosenstein, whom he would replace with someone more pliantly willing to fire Special Council Robert Mueller.

Mueller is now investigating $3 million dollars that changed hands on June 3, 2016. That was the day Don Jr received an email requesting his presence at a treason meeting at Trump Tower. You’ll remember his response: “If it’s what you say it is, I love it. Especially later in the summer.” The $3 million changed hands between two people at that (nothing burger) meeting.

I believe the NY Times “bombshell” story serves another purpose as well:

It takes the attention off blackout drunk, frat boy, Judge Rapey Kavanaugh. Trump was doing so good, but he couldn’t keep his fingers still, ignoring his staff’s request that he remain silent on the subject… he tweeted:

Outraged? Many people are, but the NY Times story worked. It knocked Kavanaugh out of the headlines.

What had been in the news was Dr Ford, the woman who Judge Kavanaugh (allegedly🙄) assaulted and attempted to rape, requested an FBI investigation, standard procedure with every other SCOTUS, and was flatly refused.

Dr Ford has been receiving death threats. Her email was hacked and someone impersonated her online with the intention of smearing her. This forced her and her family to go into hiding, and her offer to appear and testify needed to be modified.

Seeing this as their opportunity to keep this credible witness from testifying, the GOP refused to accommodate her. “Monday, or we are taking a vote on Kavanaugh”. ~Chuck grASSley

Dr Ford was silent for a day, weighing her options. Republican Senator, Chuck grASSley, announced his “repeated attempts to contact her, eager for a reason to vote without anymore talk of Ford.

Ford’s attorney contacted the judiciary staff saying she is “willing to testifying next Thursday in a public hearing in Washington assuming her safety is guaranteed, Kavanaugh testify first and no outside counsels question her. She wants them to subpoena Mark Judge,” (the other guy in the room.)

The outside counsel request was due to reports that the GOP panel was considering retaining a defense attourney, who specializes in sexual assault cases, to question her. They want a specialist to ambush her.

The GOP made a counter offer, between coaching Kavanaugh:

No to everything, except a postponement until Wednesday, not Thursday.

Mental health break.

Okay, I’m better.

Then there were attempts to garner sympathy for blackout drunk frat boy, Judge Rapey Kavenaugh. He is very upset because he’s getting hate emails, so he wants to get this over with, for the sake of his family.

He owes his family an apology, and he owes Dr Ford an apology, and he owes me, all of America, and planet earth an apology, because he did this.

Mitch McConnell is unfazed by the uproar against kavanaugh.

https://twitter.com/cnn/status/1043154728870400000?s=12

I love Mazie.❤️ Senator Mazie Hirono (D/HI), my new hero, has held several press conferences speaking out against the poor treatment of Kavanaugh’s victim, by the GOP, and all men.

“Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country. I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”

With regards to Chuckie grASSley’s earlier claim that Republicans had done everything they can to contact Dr. Ford, The Senator said:

https://twitter.com/kylegriffin1/status/1042782988583534593?s=12

And the crescendo:

“I’ve been fighting these fights for a — I was going to say f-ing long time. I want judges who are fair and qualified and care about individual and civil rights. If that’s considered liberal, as opposed to what I call justice and fairness, as I am wont to say, ‘F*** them!’ “

Kavanaugh’s fabricated wholesome family man, girls basketball team coach, persona is beginning to sour. People who know him are coming forward. This week I included in several of my posts, essays written by the ghosts of frat boy’s past, (his peers didn’t think he was a good guy.) But now:

“Harvard Law Students Say School Should Reconsider Brett Kavanaugh’s Teaching Job”

Harvard Law Students Say School Should Reconsider Brett Kavanaugh’s Teaching Job

And Yale won’t be outdone:

Yale Law dean: Reports that professor groomed female clerks for Kavanaugh “of enormous concern.”

Yale Law dean: Reports that professor groomed female clerks for Kavanaugh ‘of enormous concern’

Here is a sampling of the opinions of people who knew both Kavanaugh and Ford in high school:

I hope the reason Ford is postponing her testimony for the senate is because she’s busy filing a criminal complaint against both Kavanaugh and his buddy, Mark Judge. He was the one who helped push her into the bedroom and locked the door.

She has grounds to file complaints for kidnapping as well as sexual assault. And there is no statute of limitations for sexual assault in Maryland. (According to a Harvard law professor.👇🏼)

Since Republicans refuse to allow the FBI to investigate her allegations of sexual assault as part of the vetting process, the state can do it.

Meanwhile, the attacks on Dr Ford, first by Kavanaugh, and now by the GOP, are a joke to a certain faction of society. South Carolina Republican Representative, Ralph Norman tried out a new joke during a debate yesterday:

“Did y’all hear the latest late-breaking news on the Kavanaugh hearings? Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out that she was groped by Abraham Lincoln.”

Rep Norman is a pig. I hope this failed attempt at humor, disrespecting Ginsberg, a great woman, and timed to injure Dr Ford, costs him his re-election.

This game isn’t over.

I Believe Christine Blasey Ford

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who somebody (in Russia) must be blackmailing, said today— “lying to the FBI is not a big event.” If that is true, what’s the point of sworn in? Perjury is still illegal, isn’t it?

Senator Graham might have meant— perjury is not a big event if it’s committed by someone on the GOP team.

Today we have a Supreme Court nominee who committed perjury, no less than 5 times during his confirmation hearings, and now faces an accusation of attempted rape.

Photo of Kavanaugh, during Senate Confirmation Hearings, refusing to shake hands with a man whose daughter was murdered during the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The GOP had a list of 65 signatures ready, women who Kavanaugh didn’t rape.

That list proves he didn’t attack anyone… right? I broke a glass in my kitchen, but I didn’t break 20 glasses in my kitchen, look at them, not a chip. I guess that means I never broke that broken glass.

How much effort went into finding these women who claim to have known Kavanaugh 30 years ago… 65 women, and he went to an all boys high school. I’d have a hard time coming up with 65 men or women who I knew in high school.

The GOP did their homework and had that letter ready because they knew allegations were coming. Rumor has it this is not even the accusation they were expecting. They were expecting to hear about an incident that took place during a summer internship. Maybe another woman will come forward.

Now Republicans are in the process of attacking the accuser.

They are as desperate as she is credible.

Christine Blasey Ford, is the woman who came forward last week. She has two Masters Degrees, one in psychology from Pepperdine University, the other in Education from Stanford, and she has a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from USC. She is a professor at Palo Alto University and teaches clinical psychology in a consortium with Stanford. Her work has been published in many academic journals. She’s also been a research psychologist for Stanford’s Department of Psychiatry, and a professor at the Stanford School Of Medicine Collaborative Clinical Psychology Program.

I’m impressed. So what did she say happened in that summer of 1983?

  • She was a 15 year old at a party.

  • On her way to the restroom, two 17 year old boys pushed into a bedroom.

  • One of them locked the door and turned up the music so no one would hear.

  • Kavanaugh covered her mouth so no one could hear her scream.

  • He groped her and tried to remove her clothes.
  • She believes if he hadn’t been so drunk and if he had been able to remove her clothes, he would have raped her.
  • She told her husband about it.

  • She told her therapist in 2012.

  • She passed a polygraph test administered by a former FBI agent.

  • She is willing to testify.

I believe Christine Blasey Ford

***UPDATE: Only 2 of the 65 women who signed the character reference for Kavanaugh still support him now that they are aware of the allegations.

***UPDATE 2: Alumnae of the girls school Dr Ford attended have now penned their own missive, giving her their support. 😁

Open Letter from Holton-Arms Alumnae in Support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

Chuck Grassley is an Ass

Brett Kavanaugh, if you aren’t aware, is about to be elected, by the Senate, to the Supreme Court of the United States. This is bad for many reasons, many of which I’ve written about throughout the week.

The big reason, in my opinion, is that he was chosen for the position by Donald Trump. Trump chose Kavanaugh because the judge believes a president can do what ever he wants to do, without consequences, and without the nuisance of an investigation into his ties to Russia.

If you’d like to read more about why Kavanaugh should not be confirmed, feel free to backtrack through my posts.

*This is new:

The newest revelation is with regards to a woman Brett Kavanaugh went to high school with. She wrote a letter detailing an allegation of sexual misconduct against him. She was 15 and he was 17 at the time of the incident.

The letter wound up in the hands of Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, who passed the information on to the FBI.

This resulted in a postponement of the Senate’s vote until next week.

***

According to the Washington Post: The FBI does not plan to launch a criminal investigation of Kavanaugh regarding these new allegations, instead the bureau passed the information on to the White House as an update to Kavanaugh’s background check… of course they did. 🙄

So, Kavanaugh 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

finds his support is wavering a tiny bit, among a few members of the GOP.

Butt, Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼,

the GOP chairman of the senate confirmation hearings, who bulldozed through the hearings without releasing 93% of Kavanaugh’s records… because “there wasn’t enough time”, had a swift response to the letter.

He penned a letter of his own. Then he obtained the signatures of 65 women who knew Kavanaugh in high school. The letter states Kavanaugh “has behaved honorably and treated women with respect”.

Chuck Grassley had the time to do this overnight, but he still couldn’t find the time to release 93% of Kavanaugh’s records.

Chuckie wants us to believe, that because 65 women were not sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh in high school, he could not possibly have harmed the one who came forward. This argument is the equivalent of: Ted Bundy (serial killer) met thousands of women in his lifetime whom he did not kill, so he could not possibly have ever killed anyone.

Brett Kavanaugh Held A Woman Down While Forcing Himself On Her According To New Allegations

These men, Kavanaugh and Grassley, not only want to end the Mueller investigation, but they hope to set women’s rights back decades.

Please contact any or all senators whose emails are listed below. This link will also allow you to see each senator’s position on this matter.

SCOTUS Senators Tracker

Unfortunately, for everyone who does not fall into the “old republican white man” demographic, Chuck Grassley was re-elected in 2016. We have him for 4 more years.

The upside is, we can make his remaining time in the senate miserable by surrounding him with women and a racially diverse group of senators.

I know this is overkill, but:

Please urge people to vote. This is, without question, the single most important primary election this country has had. Every vote matters.

Senator Collins Has Never Been “Undecided”

There is a movement among the masses known as “crowdfunding”. Citizens have used social media to pledge donations to the political opponents of those politicians who they feel are not representing them well. Senator Susan Collins of Maine is among the most recent targets of crowdfunding.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised, to be paid to the campaign of Senator Collins’ opponent, in the event she votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. Kavanaugh is the judge who has perjured himself multiple times with hopes of being confirmed. If this was any other point in history he wouldn’t have come this far.

The amount of money raised against Collins is enough to have garnered the attention of said Republican Senator from Maine. She has called it bribery.

Think about it. It is pathetic that in order for politicians to do their jobs, represent those who voted them in, vast amounts of money needs to be infused to even garner their attention.

Using money to influence federal legislators is something lobbyists do regularly, and it has served them well.

For example, “bribes” are the reason our prescription drug costs have skyrocketed. “Bribes are the reason the price of pharmaceuticals drugs used in hospitals is exponentially higher than the ridiculous prices already paid. “Bribes” are the reason insurance companies decide our healthcare treatment rather than our doctors. Bribes are the reason the GOP tax scam bill passed. Bribes are what drives politics today, not the people who elect those enriching themselves as they turn their backs on their people.

I’ve listed Collins among those who are “undecided” with regards to Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation as SCOTUS. Her phone number and email address have been in several of my recent posts.

I was mistaken. Senator Collins is feigning indecision. She never had any intention of voting no to the man who will decimate women’s rights, the rights of labor, healthcare, contraception, money in politics, voting rights, LGBT rights, executive power…

Her husband is lobbyist Thomas Daffron of Jefferson Consulting Group. He is on the payroll of Russian oligarchs. There is no question as to whether Senator Collins is compromised.

This explains her voting pattern, and the policy of those who answer her phones. If you call Collins’ office, in order to voice your opinion that she should vote no, the person who answers the phone will tell you they’ll pass along your message. They’ll do so without taking note of the call even keeping a tally of calls.

Regardless of what her constituents in Maine have to say, Collins belongs to the Senate Majority. This speaks to the high level of corruption in the GOP, and this is why the GOP will not survive Donald Trump.

Russia controls the GOP, often via millions of dollars funneled through the NRA. Republican members of Congress do not represent their constituents.

Don’t let Collins fool you; she was always a yes vote.

Incidentally, in the past two months, while we have been focused on Kavanaugh, the GOP has confirmed twenty six district court and federal appeals judges.

They are worried, as they should be, they’ll lose the majority in November. They’re scrambling to do what they can to protect themselves and their political agendas before that happens.

Republicans Confirmed A Lot Of Judges While Everyone Was Focused On Brett Kavanaugh

This is the list, again, of Senators who claim to be undecided with regards to their SCOTUS vote. Collins is at the top of the list.

  • Susan Collins
    • ME: 207-784-6969
    • DC: 202-224-2523

    Lisa Murkowski

    • AK: 907-271-3735

    Heidi Heitkamp

    • ND: 701-258-4648
    • DC: 202-224-2043

    If you prefer to email, the link below is complete list of senators with email addresses. It tells you who has committed to vote yes or no, and who is leaning toward a vote, and who remains completely undecided. For many, like Collins, their professed stance is purely theater.

    9/11 in Trump’s World

    Trump, in Pennsylvania, on his way to flight 93 memorial.

    Trump tweeted ‘No Collusion’ before mentioning 9/11 today, on 9/11

    Trump Tweets About ‘No Collusion’ Before Mentioning 9/11 on 9/11 – The Daily Beast

    A brief history of 9/11:
    Seventeen years ago today America was attacked.
    The men involved in the hijackings hailed from: 15 from Saudi Arabia, 2 from the United Arab Emeritus, 1 from Egypt, and 1 from the Lebanese Republic.
    None were: Afghans, Iranians, Iraqis, South Americans, or Mexicans.
    Osama Bin Laden, was the leader of the militant organization, al-Qaeda, that these men belonged to and worked for. Bin Laden was a Saudi Arabian member of the wealthy bin Laden family who were connected to the Saudi Royal family.
    Some of Bin Ladin’s family members were living in the U.S. at the time and were permitted to fly out of the country immediately after the attack, even though a flight ban had been imposed.

    Donald Trump lived in New York on 9/11.

    • He claims he cleared rubble from Ground Zero, and pulled people out. He did not.
    • He claims he saw Muslims celebrating when the Twin Towers fell. He did not.
    • He claims “hundreds” of his friends died in the the Twin Towers, but he can not name a single one, because those friends did not exist.
    • He claims to have donated millions to 9/11 funds…

    Fun Fact: DONALD TRUMP DONATED $ZERO to victims of 9/11, INSTEAD,

    Donald J Trump took $150,000 from a 9/11 fund designated for “recovery efforts.”

    Records from Empire State Development Corp. show he requested the money for “rent loss,” “cleanup” and “repair”.

    After the towers fell, Trump told a radio audience Trump Tower was the new tallest building in Manhattan after the WTC fell on September 11th.
