Professor Ford wants to testify. No Democrat nor Democrat operative wants her to. She won't.

That Andy McCarthy piece illustrates once again that:a) he still doesn't get it; b) he still feels bad for his buddy Jim Comey; and c) the swamp operates by rules which constantly shift and are incomprehensible to normal people. Rosenstein is a weasel--but Jim Comey isn't? Trump is "shameful" for describing the guy who proudly states that he hid behind the curtains to avoid facing Trump is a "nut job.?"

It seems to me as an admittedly biased outsider that Trump should have the authority to fire any or all of them for wasting time with palace intrigue and being grossly ineffective at carrying out the job they are supposed to do.

Sessions is holding a Popeye's container in the pics. That means he can't be all bad.

It took the WaPo 9 months to report Sandy Berger's crime.

*Sept/Oct 2003-Berger theft of classified national security information
*Jan 2004-FBI search Berger's home
*March 2004-Berger's 9/11 testimony
*July 20, 2004-Berger's theft reported in the news

If he isn't offering $'s for corraborating witnesses, then even the King of Porn doesn't think this is going far.

TK, I tolerated the first dozen times you all regurgitated that same unending and ultimately pointless argument, but aren’t even you all sick of it by now?

Just starting catch-up but I am wondering if anyone here has come up with the "Top Gun" slogan that 15 year old Corey Booker remembers ringing in his head a full 2 years before the Movie "Top Gun" ever came out?

Anyone?

I predict that, some day, we may see politicians - as well as high school and college students - wear body cams to provide exculpatory evidence in case of future allegations of "misconduct".

Another goal of the authoritarian Left - the destruction of personal "privacy".

Captain Hate

McCarthy must have some deep state contacts who play him like a ping pong ball.

"anger among GOP voters generated from a combination of the unsubstantiated attacks on Kavanaugh and flaccid response of emasculated Republicans"

It would not surprise me if the "flaccid response of emasculated Republicans" is nevertrump GOPe telling leadership ... "We will eventually confirm Kavenaugh if and only if you annoy the hell out of Trump supporters for our amusement and delight"

I’m told Rod Rosenstein refused to resign in his meeting with Kelly

WH does not want to fire him outright bc unclear line of succession

POTUS will meet him Thursday to try to secure his resignation

Though this probably pertains more to Booker:

"Your ego is writing checks your body can't cash."

Captain Hate

That's a pretty good description of how it's played out so far, boris.

Tom R

Poor Tom. Poor poor Tom.

Gus,

What are you trying to convince yourself I am upset over? Besides you how many people other here fell hook, line and sinker for the Fake News that Rosenstein resigned or got fired today?

I actually got a laugh when it turned out the meeting today at the WH was a scheduled meeting and that Trump and Rosenstein are not meeting until Thursday. If Rosenstein remains on the job after Thursday is your head going to explode from having a massive conniption fit? At that point you would have to start admitting that maybe Trump is indeed playing 4D Chess and Rosenstein is a White Hat.

Jack is Back!

daddy,

There are several to choose from:

"Great balls of fire!"

"Remember, boys, no points for second place."

"... the need for speed!"

"Show me the way home, honey."

"Let's turn and burn!"

"You're not going to be happy unless you're going Mach 2 with your hair on fire."

Take your pick.

 joan

Geebus, I hate Rosenstein.

Just reading how angry and scared he got because his president depended on his reasoning for Comey's firing, and he was terrified about what his 'friends' or the press would think....what a weak snake.

Tom R

That Andy McCarthy piece illustrates once again that:a) he still doesn't get it; b) he still feels bad for his buddy Jim Comey; and c) the swamp operates by rules which constantly shift and are incomprehensible to normal people

Bingo. Fortunately Trump plays 4D Chess and C doesn't apply to him.

"I understand that Stormy Daniels now says she had an affair with Kavanaugh."

Matt,

This is all that remains of "the Left". Wannabes, psychologically unfit nutcases who will do and say anything to please their masters (and maybe get a book deal or a photo shoot as a bonus).

Even Hollywood and George Soros' piggy banks combined can't rehabilitate these characters.

 joan

Should have added: ...and then Rosenstein the next day appoints Mueller.

And our nation has suffered from that ever since. And the democrats, media, and left have been licking their chops.

If RR won't resign, I hope Gen. Kelly gives him an office adjacent to his own and checks his schedule every day.

We need a few more men like General Kelly.

GUS at home

McCarthy is moving along slowly, but surely.
He clearly knows Rosenslime and knows a weasel when he see's one. Or at least when someone points out this creep is a weasel.

Tom R

I am wondering if anyone here has come up with the "Top Gun" slogan that 15 year old Corey Booker remembers ringing in his head.

I imagine a 15 year old virgin might consider getting to 3rd base and beyond as the "Danger Zone".

If, when all the dust settles, it's apparent that Ronan Farrow went with a story that even the Times and ABC wouldn't touch and did a good bit of embellishing, and Farrow is therefore knocked down a couple of pegs, well...at least there's that.

You acknowledged that Rosenstein was complicit in the Uranium One cover up and yet you insist he is a white hat.

SCOTUS confirmation hearing, 2053:

DiFi's successor: "Mr. Chairman, I would like to submit a letter I received recently, alleging that Judge So-and-So, while a student at Harvard, groped and sexually assaulted Dr. Pussy-Hat Wearing Leftist Partisan Hack at some vague, hazy party somewhere. We demand an investigation into this incident immediately."

Chairman: "Certainly, Senator. Mr. Smith, the NSA representative, you can check on this while we wait?"

Few minutes later:

Mr. Smith: "Mr. Chairman, we've checked Judge So-and-So's smart phone, internet, and social media metadata. We have discovered that this incident COULD NOT have happened. Judge So-and-So was chatting with his now transgendered husband on SMS and swapped photos of their new Yorkie via Snapchat, according to the timestamps of the messages and file transfers."

Good morning, A Psalm of David and a prayer for President Trump.

Psalm 64

For the leader. A psalm of David.

2O God, hear my anguished voice;

from a dreadful foe protect my life.

3Hide me from the malicious crowd,

the mob of evildoers.

4They sharpen their tongues like swords,

bend their bows of poison words.

5They shoot at the innocent from ambush,

they shoot him in a moment and do not fear.

6They resolve on their wicked plan;

they conspire to set snares;

they say: “Who will see us?”

7They devise wicked schemes,

conceal the schemes they devise;

the designs of their hearts are hidden.

8God shoots an arrow at them;

in a moment they are struck down.

9They are brought down by their own tongues;

all who see them flee.

10Every person fears and proclaims God’s actions,

they ponder his deeds.

11The righteous rejoices and takes refuge in the LORD;

all the upright give praise.

Amen

I imagine a 15 year old virgin might consider getting to 3rd base and beyond as the "Danger Zone".

So "Highway To The Danger Zone" was ringing in Corey Booker's 15 year old skull 2 years before the Movie "Top Gun" came out?

Booker is obviously lying. I'm just saying that song is what he was probably referring to when he formulated the lie.

Rocco, I've been emailing President Trump once or twice a week, telling him I'm praying that God bless him with continued strength, courage, and fortitude as he leads our nation. I always include prayers for his family.

I know it helps me, I know God hears those prayers, and in that, I am comforted. President Trump must have a lot of people praying for him to be able to face each day knowing what vile, evil people in his Justice Department are busy doing.

Jimmy Jimmy

(My love for chaos drives me to imagine another scenario: Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III looks at Monday's events and decides that This Outrage Against the Rule of Law cannot stand, and, since he's got to be fed up with the president* anyway, then he quits On Principle, leaving the president* to put up another attorney general before, perhaps, a Democratic Senate.)

Most folks in the Congress were still in Kavanaugh hibernation when the story broke, but there certainly will be comments a'plenty when they finally emerge, blinking, into the downpours, both literal and metaphorical. We all picked a really bad week to stop doing crystal meth. More, you can guaran-damn-tee, to follow. Also, nice work, New York Times. Judy Miller would be proud.

Tom R

McCarthy’s article really convinced me he is permanently GOP Establishment. The GOPe NeverTrumpers as well as the Democrat Progtards hate Trump. If they believe Trump firing Rosenstein will help Democrats win the 2018 midterms then they are in temporary alliance with one another.

Seems fairly obvious to me what Trump's opponents are trying to manipulate him into doing.

derwill

Fake news media sure got made fools of today. He resigned, Fired! Resigned! Fired! Oops— neverrrrrmiiind.

Peter Piper

Increasingly, the Kavanaugh story is about privilege. The younger Kavanaugh comes off as an entitled prick who thinks his preppie pedigree allowed him to do whatever the hell he wanted. To say that the combination of alcohol, testosterone, and entitlement is a toxic cocktail is a grotesque understatement.

One mystery of the Kavanaugh mess is why he didn’t try the “repentant former drunk” gambit that was used by his ex-boss, George W. Bush. When the Blasey Ford charges emerged, it would have been wise to have said something like this: “When I was young, I had a terrible drinking problem. I drank until I blacked out and do not remember what happened when I was in that condition.” Such a confession might have served him well but it’s too late for what the Watergate creeps called a modified limited hangout.

Adding to Kavanaugh’s political hangover is the fact that Michael Avenatti joined the fray last night with a third entry in the Brett Kavanaugh sexual predation sweepstakes:.

Tom R

I tackle Tom's "facts" and dismantle them.

I am 3-0 with him.

It's easy to go undefeated when you get to declare yourself the winner whenever you want.

What I have learned about you is you would rather argue over semantics and stupid shit instead of matters of substance. Why is that?

daddy

WiKi: "Danger Zone" is a song, with music composed by Giorgio Moroder and lyrics written by Tom Whitlock, which American singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins recorded and released in 1986. The song was one of the hit singles from the soundtrack to the 1986 American motion picture Top Gun, the best selling soundtrack of 1986 and one of the best selling of all time.[2][3] According to Allmusic.com, the album "remains a quintessential artifact of the mid-'80s" and the album's hits "still define the bombastic, melodramatic sound that dominated the pop charts of the era."[3]

So once again, Corey Booker, in his own write-up in 1992 about his sexual groping on New Year's Eve 1984 that I will never forget had the "Top Gun" slogan ringing in my head, , a Top Gun slogan that had not yet been recorded for another 2 years.

derwill

Aw, Ben. Bless your heart. Better go put some ice on that.

daddy

Concerning Kavanaugh, Rush in Hour 2 went into detail about how the Dem Senators are doing exactly what their base wants them to do.

He didn't mention that the Repub Senators are doing exactly the opposite of what their base wants them to do.

Captain Hate

I wonder if Levin will address McCarthy's piece tonight. Ol' Yeller has been adamant from day 1 that the NYT article was planted by McCabe and/or someone in cahoots with him to provoke removing Rosenstein, whom Levin doesn't like but strongly advised against removing him.

Threadkiller

Look at the substance of your Sanders claim and figure it out, Tom.

You were wrong. The facts don't support your claim.

Dave (in MA)

Could the Top Gun slogan perhaps refer to some stupid catch phrase from the movie rather than some song? I don't think I ever saw it.

Eye Doctor .

Tommy boy

You choose to bicker with TK over semantics and stupid shit rather than debate others on the facts.

Why is that?

Increasingly, the Kavanaugh story is about privilege the desperate, looney left.

Ol' Yeller has been adamant from day 1 that the NYT article was planted by McCabe and/or someone in cahoots with him to provoke removing Rosenstein

I said that when the story first came out, though I had in mind the NYT itself as trying to provoke the firing. But my presumption was that it wasn't a true story. If Rosenstein really did consider wearing a wire, good riddance. He'll be the next hero of the resistance.

A child like technique?

I won't agree to that, ED. I'm just correcting your notion that Tom wasn't debating me on factual matters.

It will come back to haunt him - just not this week.

Tom R

TK,

Extraneus also interpreted Sander's response correctly. All Sanders did was confirm that Trump and Mueller had a meeting but she explicitly refused to answer whether it was for the FBI Director job. You just assumed that since Sanders evaded the answering the question directly that meant she confirmed Mueller interviewed for the FBI Director job. You are treating your assumption as fact and then claiming you have "won".

I am not going to waste my time on this anymore so if you want to give yourself another win for getting the last word in knock yourself out.

I trust President Trump to make the right decision wrt Rosenstein.
But I concur with what another person has posited.
We are wasting an enormous amount of time with Mueller and the Obama people coup and President Trump is trying to run s country here.
Our wonderful United States is being ridiculed overseas by the nonsense that passes for our Congress and the ability of a group of Dem sore losers to hold a nominee hostage who belongs on the SC.
This crap needs to stop now.Character assassination is not the American way.
Do your job and Repubs make sure you get re-elected.
Ignore the fake media noise.
I made a conscious decision to treat any unverifiable news as propaganda and to call it that.

30 best quotes from 'Top Gun' for its 30th anniversary

You are missing my point. How does a 15 year old Corey Booker exactly remember the "Top Gun" slogan ringing in my head, 2 years before any of those quotes were ever made in a movie about Top Gun pilots?

Booker is anachronistically miss-remembering, or he's flat out lying. His 1992 column is a perfect example of a fake remembrance of sexual harassment.

maryrose

That Psalm hits just the right note wrt what has transpired this past week.

Where does he go to get his reputation back?

Pompeo's statement was solid, but not Haley's.

Haley:

“I have never once been in the White House where that conversation has happened,” Mrs. Haley said. “I’m not aware of any Cabinet members that are even talking about that. It is completely and totally absurd. No one is questioning the president at all.”

Contrast with Pompeo:

“I’ve never heard anyone talk about it, whisper about it, joke about it in any way. I’ve been in a lot of meetings with a lot of senior officials from this government.”

He also chided Mr. Acosta for claiming Mrs. Haley was the “only person” at the press conference that had been in the Trump administration “since the beginning.”

“Fact check: I’ve been with the administration since the beginning, too,” Mr. Pompeo said. “That’s relevant. But I’ll add — no discussion with me about the 25th Amendment anywhere, either — so you can now report that two senior leaders have said that your question was ludicrous.”
