Nobody cares what you think.

John Kasich on Twitter: "My statement on Judge #Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court: https://t.co/zw53NY9yeL"

hrtshpdbox

"The group said none of them recall meeting an individual named Julie Swetnick."

Brand new letter from 60 of Kavanaugh's schoolmates.

Katshit looking for another 15 seconds of fame ...

Captain Hate

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows issued this statement:

WE will not allow Speaker Ryan to punt to the White House (on Rosenstein.) We will have an answer one way or another today.

It's an executive branch matter, Meadows. What am I missing?

I'm not talking about this Kavanaugh matter any more because everything about it disgusts me, particularly everything having to do with the GOP.

Pinandpuller

Cassius Clay only changed his name once.

Captain Hate

Nobody cares about Katshit. I can't wait until he's out of office.

daddy

Chris Ferrell says this about the memo's the House is being denied:

Ferrell: Worse than that Lou, Speaker Ryan has guilty knowledge of all of this, and he is as bad in my opinion as Mr Rosenstein, because he is sitting on top of corrupt, criminal activity, and he is suppressing and obstructing the Freedom Caucus members who went to get that information out...he has guilty knowledge of all of this stuff...the good news is that through Court Process, through our litigation, Judicial Watch will uncover those records long before Mr Goodlatte or anybody else on the Hill ever sees them.

Lou Continues apoplectic, but wryly smiles because he knows thats the truth:)

Extraneus

So what's the prediction on the committee vote? I say Collins is a definite yes.

I don't want to opine on the dominant/submissive body language between Feinstein and Murcowski.

Pinandpuller

If Pete Holmes still has a show he won't be able to play Kav in the HBO movie. https://youtu.be/lK8G_VAuEnk

The Infamous Ignatz

I wish Jane was a good enough friend that when I asked her to kick Jonah Goldberg in his tiny nuts next time she saw him she'd do it, instead of telling me what a great guy he is. :/

Jack is Back!

A couple of days ago, I woke up to 58F. Today, it is now 76F, very humid, no wind. Ocean is a sheet of calm. But then this the beginning of Indian Summer here. The best time of the year.

If that is really Ford's opening statement then the Maricopa prosecutor is going to have a field day. Why this woman wants to go through this only God knows. It is very weak tea.

When you consider how Code Pink can recruit the retrobates that showed up at Kav's hearing, does it not doubt these so-called professional, successful women coming forward? Hell, yeah, it does.

It wouldn't surprise me she gets up after her opening statetment, and screams, "No to Roe, No to Roe!" as she is escorted out of the hearing.

Beasts of England

Claims of a 4th accusation from 1998 - pushed a girl when he was hammered. I guess they've moved on from attempted rapist to mean drunk.

The Infamous Ignatz

That black dude could easily resolve two of America's greatest problems with one shot, were he so inclined.

Jane

Why can't we find something to arrest George Soros for?

Barbara

I read her prepared statement.

There's a lot of dancing through her legal minefields.

A couple of things:

She spent almost every day that summer at this country club presumably practicing her swimming and diving. I find that statement interesting.

She doesn't mention socializing with this group that included "Brett", yet her causal reference to him indicates a certain degree of familiarity.

She went to this, one would assume unsupervised, party for which she provides no place, date or time. She only had one beer.

That's as definitive as she gets in her written statement about this life altering event.

For the most part, her statement is a recitation of her concerns about Kavanaugh receiving a nomination to the Supreme Court. Frankly, it sounds as if she was following his career with great interest, but didn't feel compelled to speak up until now. In fact, she didn't feel compelled to speak up now at all. She thought she could scuttle his nomination by tossing a letter over the transom to a congresswoman.

The rest of the statement is just a recitation of the poor woman's woes. I'm not sure she ever explained why she and her husband went into therapy.

This is a target rich environment for any Republican on that Committee to pursue if they have the fortitude to do so.

Beasts of England

Is Kasich unaware that he already has a lifetime appointment? Now go get your confetti gun.

derwill

Daddy could you email that pic to Murkowski’s office and let her know that it is all over the internet (it is). I doubt she wants her Alaskan constituents to see it and then know how she allowed herself to be bullied into voting no by a California senator.

James D.

Nobody cares about Katshit. I can't wait until he's out of office.

I can’t wait until he’s dead and rotting in the lowest circle of hell.

I am done with all these people. They hate me, I hate them back.

I'm too busy watching that Hardee's commercial to provide a meaningful reply,

Obviously Beasts is an East Coaster because this side of the Rockies it's not Hardee's, it's Carl's Jr.

Pinandpuller

I knew Merc was lanky but I thought she'd be taller.

Ext, Chitown Lurker suggests the DiFi-Murkowski pics have a staged element to them.

Jack is Back!

We really need to do something about term limits. ChiFi is 85, Hatch is 84(?), Leahy is (83?) Grassley is (82?). Now maybe back in the founders day, the average life span was into the 60's and they didn't consider our medical advancements, but something needs to be done. I don't think they are incapable but come on their faculties are impaired, just watch the way they talk.

No one over 75 can serve in Congress, or something like that.

Of course the negative there is we are being run by a bunch of weed smoking, flag burning ex-hippies from Haight-Ashbury, or are they too young for that?

henry

That cheeseburger is getting more tail than Kav ever did.

henry

JiB, that group is too old for Haight Ashbury.

daddy

Brand new letter from 60 of Kavanaugh's schoolmates.

"The group said none of them recall meeting an individual named Julie Swetnick."

Golly,

Julie was even more invisible than Barrack Obama was at Columbia.

NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA !!!!!!!

Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.

Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, “I don’t know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don’t have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia. Ever! Nobody recalls him. I’m not exaggerating, I’m not kidding.

Extraneus

Chitown Lurker suggests the DiFi-Murkowski pics have a staged element to them.

Thanks, Melinda! I forget where I found it, will look into that now.

JimNorCal

Miss Marple (the real one)

I totally agree about the age limitation. People over 75 have limitations due to stamina, if nothing else (President Trump will be an exception).

Of course, even if you could get that passed, the dems would file age discrimination lawsuits and tie it up in court.

sbwaters

Ext, on twitter there was another image of DiFi and Murk.

DiFi looks mean and threatening, but Murk may not be buying it.

Jack is Back!

henry,

Good point. Lets check out the haunts. Mine when I was in college was both Frisch's Big Boy and White Castle. You can tell a lot about a person from the burgers they order and eat. At Big Boy, it was car service on skates. Ask those girls how many times they were hit up by future judges, congressman, senators, supreme court justices, et. al.

White Castle people are different. They save their money for beer, and use the left over change for a bag of oringinal sliders. Too blasted to do anything but eat.

Extraneus

Wow, that's some body language. I'd love to read an expert's take on that.

Extraneus

Is Feinstein 85 and still doing this?

DebinGA

Maybe Lisa is reminding DiFi Trump beat Hillary in AK by 15 pts.

I am pleased to see that the White House communications people understand the importance of background music. It resonates with people who are movie watchers. Take a look and see what I mean.

A man would have pushed a guy for that Feinsteain hand-on-the-wall move, or at least would have moved to his left to defeat it.

matt - deplore me if you must

The Karchers (Carl's) are a local family. I know their son, a priest. They were very devout Catholics. A lot of us were furious that they did that series of commercials. Lascivious.

@drawandstrike
Ford is claiming in her official statement to the Senate Judiciary committee that...her email account was hacked.

I believe by this time tomorrow we're going to know why she's making this claim.”

Extraneus

Did she write a bad email?

henry

"Don't believe the trail of smoking gun evidence of premeditated character assassination, I was hacked". Plus "I didn't know this wiped my social media like with a cloth".

Extraneus

This doesn't look photoshopped to me.

So the interesting thing in swetnick CV, is she is at least shallow state, she worked for homeland before dc govt and the us mint (on a deloitte contract)

rich

I thought we've had a few threads over 2000 comments ...

henry

Not photoshopped so much as staged. A series of photos of the confrontation? Professional photographer standing by for it at the Captitol Tram stop? Staged for someone.

The Infamous Ignatz

Avenetti and Sweathog aren't even worth refuting. The GOP probably should subpoena them both. Might make Kavanaugh wait a bit but it would probably mean three or four more Senators and 10-15 reps after people watched the Dems not knowing how to react to the little porn monster they cheered on or they simply didn't even show up.

Jack is Back!

Read Memeorandum at the side bar and then understand why the media is so suspect among right thinking people.

Barbara

It's interesting to compare Blasey-Ford's recollections of The Summer of '82 with Brett Kavanaugh's calendar for that same period of time.

Perhaps I'm only reading this into her statement, but she implies that she became acquainted with "Brett" and his friends while hanging around the pool at the country club that summer. Kavanaugh's calendar, on the other hand, shows that his summertime activities were quite different from hers. He was off to camp; he traveled to this friend's home for one weekend and to another friend for another weekend.

He spent the week at the beach. He was focused on his studies and the next step in his education.

If this calendar typifies the young Kavanaugh's activities, whether it was 1982 or any other year, it doesn't match with the indolent sort of summer Blasey-Ford's describes. Not even close.

Meanwhile, Jen Rubin needs an intervention stat.

From a stealth Jeff tweet: Swetnick sued NY Life over sexual harassment and got paid off. Her lawyer worked for Debra Katz, the Ford skank's lawyer.

Coincidence ?

narciso79

And previous to that at main justice and foggy bottom, so there's that angle despite her lack of an ivy league pedigree, she is a swamp critter.

From memorandum;

Wictor picked up on that NY Life / same lawyer coincidence. Leads to a WSJ article from a decade ago.

The GOP probably should subpoena them both.

The problem is, the Senate requires both committee leaders for that, unlike the House.

DebinGA

Must see to believe - Trump's presser today

Beasts of England

Ford says her email was hacked? Is this like when she said her shrink wrote down the wrong number of suspects in the note she won't submit to the committee? Okie doke!

narciso79

So how is this polygraph dispositive, like I say rowan pope would kill everyone involved on principle.

Porchlight

The UN is stupid and evil, so it matters not a bit that they laughed at Trump.

daddy

In the close up DiFi looks angry and all business and that makes sense to me because if she fails without taking out Kavenaugh she will have totally destroyed her image of integrity for nothing---this is totally personal to her---It's not about Ford at all, its about DiFi.

Murkowski, with eyes closed, appears subordinate and apologetic to DiFi, who most definitely has her eyes wide open and locked firmly on Murkowski's closed eyes. DiFi looks like a Marine Drill Instructor or more properly a Mob Boss demanding an answer. She is angry but most definitely not afraid of Murkowski in the slightest.

Bike ride time.

Porchlight

Ford contradicted herself - the polygraph statement and the letter to DiFi (dated a week apart) indicate differing numbers of guests at the fake party.

I noted that upthread, Porch - didn't you carefully read all 1,963 comments?! 😜

jimmyk

So did Hillary. Who's laughing now?

As did Obama, Colbert, John Oliver, Seth Myers, George Clooney, Joy Behar, and many others.

henry

Beasts, the aforementioned ex read all 1964.

Porchlight

Beasts, this is for you:

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/09/26/ex-boyfriend-filed-restraining-order-against-kavanaugh-accuser-845348

Swetnick's BF filed a restraining order against her.

“Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said in a telephone interview with POLITICO. "I know a lot about her.”

"She’s not credible at all,” he said. “Not at all.”

narciso79

Well she was hawt, per your description, there was one in junior high and one in college who was like that.

So Im thinking that this is in part a revenge scheme from those two Saudi princes, whose fortunes were affected by prince salman swetnick part in the story makes it plain.

Beasts of England

lol, henry!!

jimmyk

Do they have Ford's emails? I doubt it. I'm guessing the "I was hacked!" is a preemptive strike to discourage investigators from demanding the emails. But what it does is draw attention to them, as in "Pay no attention to that elephant in the room!"

Beasts of England

Good find, Porch! And it matches her MyLife comments that she was screwing married men and trying to destroy their families. Can't believe I haven't dated her. (Yet...)

narciso79

Now David (last name escapes) girlfriend, was like that, she was part of a election scheme, in the 2010 election, she high tailed to Nicaragua, where the authorities remember his part in aiding the contras

Porchlight
Vinneccy made clear that he did not believe her story.

“I have a lot of facts, evidence, that what she’s saying is not true at all,” he said. “I would rather speak to my attorney first before saying more."

The restraining order was filed 17 years ago.

Yes, I saw that you noted it upthread, Beasts, but just wanted to note that the polygraph statement contradicts more than one other Ford account.

What a mess all these women are.
