The Kavanaugh confirmation proceedings are the most shameful moment in the history of the US Senate.
High school yearbooks?
Publishing anonymous accusations?
Using Kavanaugh as a human piñata ?
Retweeting phony stories in an effort to visit harm on Kavanaugh?
Stalking and assaulting legislators?
Threatening Kavanaugh with impeachment if confirmed?
Are you f**king kidding me?
This is sick. It is diseased. I should clarify - democrats are diseased. They are mentally ill.
What this sordid process has done is demonstrate very clearly the difference between the left and the right. Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor did not see their personal lives and family destroyed. Some Republicans voted to approve them. Like Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas was lynched during his confirmation process. GOP nominees are subject to politics of personal destruction while democrat nominees are treated respectfully.
In the other day's hearing, this was again repeated. Ford was treated with deference and Kavanaugh was assailed, in particular by some of highly dubious character.
Blumenthal went completely off the rails
"Do you believe Anita Hill?"Then he stepped on his own rake. Blumenthal cited a Latin term to Kavanaugh that basically means "once a liar, always a liar." Blumenthal claimed to have served in Vietnam. He never did.
Remember how Ford's appearance was in doubt because she was so afraid to fly?
And about this:
Mitchell: "May I ask, Dr. Ford, how did you get to Washington?
Ford: "In an airplane."
Mitchell: "I ask that because its been reported by the press that you would not submit to an interview with the committee because of your fear of flying. Is that true?"
Ford: "I was hoping that they would come to me (in California) but I realized that was an unrealistic request."
Mitchell: "it would have been a quicker trip for me."
Ford: "That was certainly what I was hoping to avoid getting on an airplane. But I eventually was able to get up the gumption with the help of some friends and get on the plane."
Mitchell: "You fly fairly frequently for your hobbies and you've had to fly for your work. Is that true?"
Ford: "Correct. Unfortunately."
"I was hoping that they would come to me (in California) but I realized that was an unrealistic request."Uh, not really.
In the hearing, when Ford was asked if anyone, including her lawyers, had relayed to her the committees offer to visit her in California, Ford refused to answer when her lawyer objected:This is rather important. If her lawyers failed to present her the offer, they could find themselves sanctioned, at the very least.
Question: Okay. Was it communicated to you by your counsel or someone else that the committee had asked to interview you, and that they offered to come out to California to do so?
Counsel: I'm going to object, Mr. Chairman, to any call for privileged conversation between counsel and Dr. Ford.
Question: Could you validate that the offer was made, without her saying a word? Is it possible for that question to be answered without violating any counsel relationships?
Ford: Can I say something to you? Do you mind if I say something to you directly? I just appreciate that you did offer that. I wasn't clear on what the offer was. If you were going to come out to see me, I would have happily hosted you and been happy to speak with you out there. I just did not -- it was not clear to me that that was the case.
The media has gone completely derelict. NBC made public an anonymous letter making accusations at Kavanaugh. Liberals have happily retweeted a phony story without so much as trying to check its veracity first.

All high school yearbooks are equal. Some are more equal than others.
Hers was scandalous with boasts of sex booze and passing out.
Yet it was not discussed at the hearing. Only hers was with allefatikns of what ‘alumni’ meant.
I’m going to object, Mr. Chairman, to any call for privileged conversation between counsel and Dr. Ford.
This isn’t a court of law. Does attorney/client confidentiality really apply here? And who told the lawyer that she could even make an “objection”?
What an ugly farce.
The senate is a body incapable of shame.
Dems don’t want to “take over” the Senate (Congress) to make a “better country”, they want ultimate and absolute power over the country.
They want America to be Venezuela and rule us from their high and mighty mansions.
Fox News is good as far as it goes, but I haven't listened to them in over a week after the 4 AM morning show did a segment on a supposed poll that Americans are pro-Obamacare and the Republicans must now focus on doing what they can to promote Obamacare because of this supposed poll, acc. to the Fox panel. Really? That was an insult to my intelligence.
I have a ‘gnawing’ feeling that these cretins will go after Justice Thomas AGAIN if they win this one..
It is also somewhat apparent that ‘they’ have/had something on Roberts as well...May as well open that can of worms...
Getting to be - MORE SO - that the only ones that will be willing to run anymore are felons and complete idiots that ONLY see the road to Politics as a road to quick riches.
May be interesting when 2 ‘say’ Hastings run against each other or the LIBs keep plowing the underbrush bringing in people that will make Pelosi - Jackson etal look intelligent.....
The entire democrat party deserves to resign in shame. The worse, by far, is the weasel/snake from CT, bloomenthal. He is absolutely despicable. A worm of a man.
This is beyond preposterous.
They searched and searched, but could not come up with anything substantive against K.
So they took and are running with this ludicrous claim.
They are evil.
Blumenthal and Schumer both have reptilian appearances.
Senators Coons and Flake remind me of Molin’s painting of Judas and Satan. Satan (Coons): “To hell with presumption of innocence. Sell your soul and destroy this man, his reputation, his wife, and daughters, Stop at nothing! Consider it just another way of proving your unrelenting hatred of Trump.”
I don’t know how to paste a photo, otherwise there would be a photo of the that revealing painting.
Fox radio news, produces propagandistic and misleading news reports through the day,IMHO.
>>was hoping that they would come to me (in California) but I realized that was an unrealistic request.”
Except she was in Deleware, no?
It is still rape even if a woman is a slut or a prostitute or a porn star
That being said, I don’t know how many cases go to court for sexual-harassment In the porn film industry
Blame, yes. Shame, no.
And the continual cooperation of the (not GOP) COP: Controlled Opposition Party.
