Beasts of England

My dear ol' Mom just called to make sure I was going to watch. In the conversation she called Feinstien '...that bitch senator...' Yowzaa. I was shocked to hear that coming out of her mouth.

Good job, leftards!! Appreciate how easy you're making the midterms. At no charge... 😎

lurkersusie

Excellent piece from the lawyer who worked on the Rolling Stone rape hoax story -->

Senate Republicans should not have invited Christine Blasey Ford to testify without first requiring her to answer written questions under oath and produce any documents supporting her claims. The polygraph results were finally released Wednesday, but where are those therapist notes? What questions was Ms. Ford asked, and how did she answer them, in each of those settings? What do others—witnesses either to the alleged assault or to Ms. Ford’s recounting of it—have to say about it under oath?

But I DO wish they would circle the wagons and protect themselves more, rather than engage in circular firing squads or circle jerks.

Hey, RG!

Just been quiet, lurking, and in a self-imposed exile.

Still on the Ledge. LOL

How ya been?

Jane

First of all, Man Tran, I'm sorry to hear about Herb.

2ndly, MM link of last night, saying the committee has talked with a guy who supposedly admits to the groping, is very important. The prosecutor should have a field day with it. Hell I hope the guy is in the audience.

Thirdly - I got nuttin'.

((I think it's more of a "Big Tent" party than the Dems ever could be, since they don't really tolerate "diversity of thought".))

Exactly. We are the Big Tent party.

So the labour party is much more militant than the Tories who are middle and upper class with one section at odds with the other.

Damn good. I hope Jane and Henry gave a good report on me from our meet-up last week.

But . . . come on in, man, the waters fine.

Grassley (a.k.a. Checkmate Chuck) is handling things nicely, our foil from Carolina South has even stopped with much of his foolishness now that McCain is off the scene, and Trump still shows no signs of nervousness or worry.

* * *

I see that CP Time is in full effect; can they start this damn thing already !?!

Sue

Jane,

Senator Graham said that he doesn't believe one of them and the other is crazy as a loon. He doesn't want to put any stock into her story by believing her at all, it would seem to me.

Shelia Jackson Lee is there. The Dem Senators seem pretty jovial.

RG,

Yeah, heard about the meet up. I envy you! Maybe someday I'll get a chance to meet them, too.

Man, they were shooting the shit about you! LOL

Just kidding .... all good news, as expected!

Janet 🚬

Apology for the circus?

The only reason this circus is happening is because DiFi held on to these accusations.

My good man, rich!

Watching!

Grassley is genius for bringing up Biden on the FBI:)

Missed you, RG.

Critical Mass of Hypocrisy

Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who has accused former President Bill Clinton of rape, will hold a rally Thursday in support of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his highly anticipated appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Broaddrick, along with representatives of Women for Trump, will be on Capitol Hill Thursday to throw their support behind Kavanaugh and highlight "the hypocrisy of Democrats in how they treat victims of sexual assault," according to a press release promoting the event.

James D.


I hope Kavanaugh hits Feinstein right between the eyes.

"Senator, you are a national disgrace."

He should, but he won't, unfortunately. The statement I'd write for him would be something along these lines:

"Good morning.

Ms. Mitchell, I'm not going to dignify this farce and answer any questions from a sex-crimes prosecutor, so I apologize for the Committee wasting your time.

Mrs. Ford, I don't know whether you've mistaken me for someone else who really attacked you, whether you're delusional, or whether you are a flat-out liar, and considering the damage you've done to my reputation and my family, I don't really care which it is. My attorney is waiting for you outside this room, by the way. He's got some papers you'll need to sign for.

Senator Feinstein, you are a disgusting liar and a wretched human being, and a disgrace to this institution, and to the people who sent you to Washington. It's obvious that you never believed Mrs. ford's baseless accusations, because if you did, you would have followed Senate procedures and the law and brought your concerns to Chairman Grassley when they came to your attention, and you would have handled them appropriately so as to protect the reputations and privacy of everyone concerned. You didn't do that, because all you cared about was making vicious and dishonest political attacks on me and my family. Your Democrat colleagues are no better, and I have nothing but contempt for all of you.

Chairman Grassley, you pandered to the ridiculous, unbelievable and slanderous stories Mrs. Ford is peddling. You allowed Senator Feinstein to lie to your face, to break all the rules of the Senate and of this Committee, and you've presided over a circus for several weeks now. You've allowed my family to become a target, you've allowed other innocent people to be brought into this pathetic joke of a process and let them be slandered and ridiculed. You're a disgrace as well.

No one on this Comittee has any moral authority whatsoever. You are all dishonest, cowardly and amoral human beings, and I'm ashamed that I've allowed myself and my family to be put through this so I can beg for your approval like a dig seeking table scraps, when the truth is that not one of you is worthy of your position or the trust the public has mistakenly given you.

I apologize to President Trump, because I must withdraw my nomination. I don't want this seat, because, frankly, I can't stand to be in the same city as any of you, let alone the same building."

fdcol63 🇺🇸

Oh, she'll break down and tear up .... will try to get sympathy.

It may work. We'll just have to see.

Evidently, the trauma did not adversely affect her ability to pursue education and career too much.

Hey rg how have you been.

what does the Chinese puppet have to say?

DebinGA

Just opening remarks from DiFi literally made me sick. Can't possibly watch this travesty, at least until it's BK's turn, so I'm counting on y'all for updates.

Janet 🚬

Blasey Ford wanted to wear bigger glasses but it wasn't possible.

narciso

I had a similar suggested statement.

Clarice Feldman

ChiFi making speech on poor women victims. Bah

lurkersusie

I’ll be the one to say it, Ford looks at least
10 to 15 years older than Kavanaugh.

Whaddyaexpectfromliars?

To help the country prepare for this morning's masquerade ball in the Dirksen building, the Republican staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee later helpfully leaked its brains out between 10 and midnight. The most spectacular bit of misdirection was the sudden appearance of two anonymous men who allegedly told the committee staff that they might have been the person who sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford back in 1982. Thus did the committee staff double down on the doppelgänger theory of the case that had worked out so well for Ed Whelan last week..

Gag me.

DiFi is squawking about things that have no bearing on this show.

Ford is a prof & had a good education? So?
Other stories? So?

Captain Hate

Grassley (a.k.a. Checkmate Chuck)

Speaking of bumbling codgers you have a soft spot in your head for, where's that fucking FISA Report?

White Hunter, Black Heart

So, the eleven old white men of the SJC want a female stand in to make their evisceration and shining on of putative kidnapping, sexual assault and attempted rape victim Dr. Ford. Because the optics the GOP men, and men are the only sex that has ever served for Republicans on SJC, looked too ugly for even them.

But is this unprecedented move, clearly designed with public optics and maximal humiliation of Dr. Ford even appropriate? Maybe not!

Now, I am not a Senate Rules expert, but a comment made me go do a little digging. Here is the text of the the most recent version of the United States Senate Standing Rules, Orders, Laws, And Resolutions. Here, specifically, is the section, contained in Chapter 43 thereof, in §4301(i)(3) relating to committee retention of consultants:

(3) With respect to the standing committees of the Senate, any such consultant or organization shall be selected by the chairman and ranking minority member of the committee, acting jointly. With respect to the standing committees of the House of Representatives, the standing com- mittee concerned shall select any such consultant or organization. The committee shall submit to the Committee on Rules and Administration in the case of standing committees of the Senate, and the Committee on House Oversight in the case of standing committees of the House of Representatives, information bearing on the qualifications of each consultant whose services are procured pursuant to this subsection, including organizations, and such information shall be retained by that committee and shall be made available for public inspection upon request. (Emphasis added)

So, Senator Feinstein, is this indeed the case? If so, why would you assent to appointment of a prosecutorial thug like Rachel Mitchell to examine the putative victim here, Dr. Ford?.

Jack is Back!

Trial by innuendo. What a dispicable individual DiFi is.

James D.

Grassley (a.k.a. Checkmate Chuck) is handling things nicely

If this is "nicely" I'd hate to see what it looks like when Chuck isn't doing a good job.

White Hunter, Black Heart

Feinstein is rocking the house!

Scary looking he/she sitting behind DiFi.

I thought Feinstein said she was making a brief statement.

Ford's "Cousin It" hairstyle screams shame/consciousness of guilt.

She's continuing with the character assassination approach.

Will the Senate do nothing about this embarrassing display ???

I just got home from food shopping mom going to make gravy with meatballs
Feinstein is on right now
& it's true the entire country is watching
I swear to God that if the Repubs don't pushback hard over these lies of hers I'll scream
I project the gravy will turn out excellente!

Trump releasing an arrest of DiFi and hubby for being Chinese spies at the intermission of this charade would be entertaining.

Oh, cool, she wore a blue suit to help the Anita Hill comparisons. Sorry it took me so long for the penny to drop.
Blue and green are the gold standard, I've read, so this may not be a ghastly scheme.

James D.

Will the Senate do nothing about this embarrassing display ???

Chuck could have told DiFi it was too late after she sat on the accusations for two months without disclosing them, lying to his face the whole time.

He could have held the vote as scheduled, and then referred her to the Ethics Committee for her failure to disclose relevant information during the hearing.

He didn't do that. He allowed this circus to come to town.

She reads really good!!! Is she educated??

What a disgusting spectacle. I agree it's akin to a Challenger moment.

So ... women are as smart, strong and capable as men. Thus, we should allow them into combat roles in the military.

But .... they are always victimized by men, and should be given special considerations.

Anyone else see the logical inconsistency here?

Yes henry, specific on what cannot possibly be disproved and vague as to what can.

I despise women with baby voices, especially at her age.

She's TERRIFIED to give testimony before a Senate committee?

But the tears magically flow on demand.

Having to grade a pile of papers must turn her into a weeping, sodden mass of humanity.

Good grief, this is third-rate theater.

She's more credible than I had guessed, but that's a decidedly low bar to clear. My Mom is right - Feinstein is a bitch.

My money is on Jon Favreau as the scriptwriter for her testimony.

Re: Doors

She says she was pushed into a bedroom and then locked inside.

Bedroom door locks are there to keep people out, not in. How is it even possible to lock anyone in anything from the inside?

Then, after getting knocked off the bed, she runs out the door which now magically is not locking her inside.

Does that make sense to anyone?

Jack is Back!

What a crock of BS. How can you be conflicted after you already wrote the letter, including giving it to the WaPo? What did you expect? She is a self-impaled victim.

fdcol63 🇺🇸

Is anyone else crying yet?

Dave (in MA)

fdcol63 🇺🇸, not really. It's the perceived threat to Roe in the minds of the other side. No matter how many Constitutionalists we get on SCOTUS, nobody's going to get their "right" to grind up inconvenient babies taken away. That train has sailed, as they say.

Does anyone really believe any minds will be changed by this. The media has already written their stories, the senators all know how they’re going to vote. The tears will flow on cue. The real consequences will come later in November.
