So chastity belts and Prohibition 2 are what the Senate bluenosed donks want? Does that mean no more Handmaid's Tale costumes?

Janet 🚬

This was a good point -

"The Democrats have also become the new Puritans. Voters should take note, though I doubt Hollywood will.

Thirty years ago, while Judge Kavanaugh was sharing “skis” with his football buddies, Hollywood told us it was the right, the GOP, that were the scolds. Movie after movie, from Footloose to others, had church-going Republicans as the enemy of fun.

Yet Senate Democrats went on the attack, demanding details about beer, parties, farting, beer, sex, drinking games, fun. “Have you ever passed out? Did you ever play quarters? Did you have sex in high school?”"...

FTA - " The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around."....

"“I love coaching more than anything I’ve ever done in my whole life,” Kavanaugh said in his opening statement on Thursday. “But thanks to what some of you on this side of the committee have unleashed, I may never be able to coach again.”

He just might be right. Oh, not the part about blaming Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee – that’s just to avoid placing blame on his wholly sympathetic accuser – but the may-never-coach-again part."....

What a week, huh? Try as hard as he might and Flake just can't help getting played.

Two hour rule! Did you see their stunned faces. What, the party is over? But we had so much more we wanted to do. Wait. Wait. Two hour rule? What does that mean? We're done. Done?

So the FBI gas to re-open process for existing allegations. I presume they don't need to re-interview people they've already talked to. Who's left to interview? Ms. Ford. Her lawyers. The press?

The Infamous Ignatz

I've come to the conclusion if I only read lurkersusie and MM's links and Extraneous and Derwill's analysis I don't really need any other sources to be well informed.

Kavanaugh will be confirmed, if he isn't assassinated first and William Kristol's loathsomeness is unsurpassed. He's begun to take on the look of Dorian Grey after he stabs his portrait.

The Infamous Ignatz

And out.

Another thing about those screaming lib. women...

If you're not a gun person, be aware of the NRA's wonderful magazine Armed Citizen. It documents cases where ordinary people were able to protect themselves by being armed and willing to fight back.

Sample story from latest issue:
https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/08/29/good-people-carry-guns-sheriff-backs-uber-driver-who-shot-threatening-stalker

I think a lot of people just aren't aware that in some locations life is not settled. And in some very safe locations there are, nonetheless, brief times where things are not safe. The media is averse to printing anything against the anti gun agenda so seeing a constant flow of these stories is psychologically healthy and helpful.

This is how I feel about Flake

GOP Officials Slam Flake: 'He's A Pompous A** Who Has Lost His F**king Mind' | Daily Wire

Republican officials sounded off on Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) on Friday afterhe sided with the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee in calling
for an FBI investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"He's a pompous a** who has lost his f**king mind," a high-level GOP official told The Daily Wire on the condition of anonymity.

The outrage against Flake came after he changed his mind from voting to confirm Kavanaugh to wanting an FBI investigation completed so that he would "feel better."

You are right. People are REALLY disgusted.

While I was over at CTH I noticed he had a clip from Tucker Carlson's show tonight.

Tucker talked about how the dems wewre operating and how Kavenaugh now has a constituency larger than people would believe.

He finished with this:

“Kavanaugh stood up for those people yesterday. He raised a middle finger to their tormentors; and they love him for it. Kavanaugh is far more popular with republican voters today than any single republican senator; and he’s incalculably more popular than the senate as a whole.” … “Kavanaugh now has a constituency, a powerful one; and they will long remember whether republicans defend him in his moment of need”..

Thanks for the reminder to pray.

Yes he is, because his statement although obviously prepared came out genuine, Graham was a,close second, but he has been circling this point earlier in the last week or so. The rest are paint by numbers.

I think this USAToday thing is going to break the MSM. Once you see, you cannot unsee. And if you have even an ounce of decency and human compassion in you, there is no defending this.

https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/408928-trump-administration-predicted-seven-degree-increase-in-global

Originally reported by the W(hite) P(ower)

Deep within a National Highway Transportation Administration 500 page draft report on proposed new car emission/mileage rules is a line that predicts a 7 degree rise in temperature by 2100. Where did that come from? Maybe from one of the two cooperating agencies, U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Remember it's a draft report, not the final report.

So the WP and The Hill call it a Trump administration report.

The report was issued in July and the news comes out now because some WP reporter was reading the report.

BS. Someone told them the number was in the report.

A caller in to the Joe Paggs Show today claimed to be a therapist who had many years of experience dealing with characters like Ms Christine Mangum Ford. She made the point that no responsible Polygraph operator would give a Polygraph to a subject on or around the day the subject had attended or was about to attend a loved ones Funeral, because the emotions of burying a loved one would in a way overwhelm and thus invalidate the responses that a legitimate Polygraph operator would be trying to record and analyze.

That made a lot of sense to me.

I was so fn pissed about the Kavanaugh situation this afternoon I suggested to D lets go over to the car dealership and look at what we would need to tow a boat and....

D bought a new F-150 truck and traded his Mustang. STX if anyone knows what that is.

We are planning on buying one maybe two Yamaha Wave Runners next spring, and my Escape won't tow them, so we were just gonna go see what was out there to pull them.

I'd like a Glastron GTDX220, but holy geebus $37K for a deck boat??? and payments of like $700 a month. For a glorified deck boat. NO way.

At least the Waverunners run on regular gas station gas not marine gas and cost about 1/2 as much for a couple of middle of the line ones.

Fun new toys for the lake and we can take them to the Keys next fall. Plus when we move to S Florida, we will have them.

Progs wail and cry to keep themselves miserable and conservatives buy toys to have fun.

Should I send the bill to Flake or start a GoFundMe???

As he considered his course of action, Flake also had a conversation with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is in charge of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Coons said Flake asked to speak to Feinstein. Eventually, it became a scrum where "virtually every member of the committee" gathered in the anteroom. Flake later told reporters he met with Democratic colleagues and asked them, "What would cause you to say we have a better process?"

Watching local Fox 9 news coverage this past week where they played a 10 second snippet of Ford's "He dunnit!" and a 3 second snippet of Kav's "I didn't". Then the reporter summarized with it's a classic he said/she said story.

I suppose a Twin Cities TV station would have to grub for viewers by catering to the Left when reporting news. I remember some time in the distant past a "Fair and Balanced" moniker and they used to occasionally quote viewer comments.

I'm grateful to JOMers for fleshing out links and perspectives that tell more of the story. Killfile is getting a workout. I pray Judge Kavanaugh and his family are sustained with courage and fortitude.

Hoyden,

Yes killfile has been busy all week. The troll only seems to show up when something important is going on, as though to demoralize us. I feel sorry for him, but his tactics suggest he doesn't deserve anything other than scorn.

I also killfiled Tom R some time ago. I don't mind his theories, but his presentation and follow-up were triggering me.

I also decided to killfile TK today. I don't see Tom R's posts, so TK's responses make no sense to me.

TK skips the overnight posts to save time. I'll skip TK to save time.

Seems fair to me. Like TK I have limited time to read all the posts. Saved time already today.

I've just done almost 48 hours of personal news blackout - I hadn't seen or heard a single story or headline or mention of any news during that time. I've checked a few stock quotes, that's it. Instead of a normal greeting, I've been saying to people "Don't mention any news to me!" So, yes, I've been a nut, but it was a fun exercise and I must have lowered my blood pressure.

And so this morning, I look to see how it all turned out, and it hasn't all turned out. Sigh. But...Lindsey Graham, yes!

I've mentioned before that I don't have or want a killfile program, it's not that hard for me to just scroll through the nonsense.

The private information on the Republican Senators is coming from a computer from the House of Representatives!

Now this…

The IP addresses lead back to a Congressional office.

The IP address of the villain who doxxed the Republican Senators is 143.231.249.130.


From there, a google search reveals that this IP address posted a comment on AUGUST 22, 2018. Very recently [redacted]
Kathleen Sengstock, a staffer for Maxine waters, posted from this IP. (https://www.c-span.org/person/?kathleensengstock) (https://twitter.com/kathleensengsto?lang=en)

So, one of Maxine Waters’ staffers has posted from that IP. I’m not sure how subnetting works in the House of Reps. But I would assume that for security purposes each rep would get their own router. Can anyone confirm?
