    Interesting story from the Federalist on Christine Blasey Ford --

    " .... Privately, however, it appears the Blasey family had significant doubts about what Ford was trying to accomplish by coming forward and making unsubstantiated allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. Within days of Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, a fascinating encounter took place. Brett Kavanaugh’s father was approached by Ford’s father at the golf club where they are both members.

    Ralph Blasey, Ford’s father, went out of his way to offer to Ed Kavanaugh his support of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, according to multiple people familiar with the conversation that took place at Burning Tree Club in Bethesda, Maryland. “I’m glad Brett was confirmed,” Ralph Blasey told Ed Kavanaugh, shaking his hand. Blasey added that the ordeal had been tough for both families.

    The encounter immediately caused a stir at the close-knit private golf club as staff and members shared the news. The conversation between the two men echoed a letter that Blasey had previously sent to the elder Kavanaugh.....

    Blasey never explicitly addressed the credibility of his daughter’s allegations, but he presumably wouldn’t have supported the nomination of a man he believed tried to rape his daughter....."

    BOMBSHELL: Blasey Ford's Father Supported Kavanaugh's Confirmation

    And instead they double-down... they will NEVER stop. NEVER. That is why the Republicans became the party of no. There are no negotiations. It's only to establish a new beach-head from which to launch from.

    Democratic presidential candidates want Kavanaugh impeached after newly surfaced sexual misconduct accusation

    It's amazing how the media has become an arm of the democrat party.

    Beto is doubling down on coming to take your AR-15. There is no interest in a majority vote or other interests. They are going to take it. That is how they operate now. WE KNOW BETTER. WE WILL USE OUR POWER. YOU CAN'T STOP US. WE WILL IMPEACH YOU IF YOU TRY.

    Kavanaugh is going to prove to be Democrat bain. They are losing anybody who thinks about anything for more than 30 seconds.

    Julian Castro first to call for impeachment for Kavanaugh, followed quickly by Kamala, Spartacus, Beta, Fauxcahontas, and Bernie.

    NY Times is to blame. Their article forgot to mention that the woman involved doesn't remember the incident. That seems like an important fact.

    Garmel, where have you been? The MSM has been part of the DNC for 25 years or more.

    Apparently the Times has amended its original story to clarify that the woman who supposedly had Kavanaugh's junk in her hand never spoke with the Times and that her friends say she doesn't remember anything about the alleged incident. How the hell is this actually "news?" Is there any reason why a reader shouldn't assume that this Times reporter didn't just make it up? I'm not saying she did, but that assumption has no less credibility than assuming the claim to be true. Hell, the alleged victim doesn't even say it's true.

    What's also kinda laughable about the Left crapping their pants over Kavanaugh is that he's not even that conservative. Personally, I didn't even support his nomination for that reason. He's probably barely to the right of his predecessor, but they act like he's friggin' Robert Bork.

    Have you ever noticed how professional athletes are quick to attack the media about taking things out of context or baiting them with loaded questions? Yet when someone on the right attacks the media, suddenly they are seen as honest holders of the democracy flame as if they are not human beings with agendas, ambitions, weaknesses and influence from their masters?

    What do you think about the complaints from the Left that he supports the unitary executive theory:

    "The unitary executive theory is a theory of US constitutional law holding that the US president possesses the power to control the entire executive branch. The doctrine is rooted in Article Two of the United States Constitution, which vests "the executive power" of the United States in the President."

    I would have thought that more of a "left" position than a "right" position (up until Trump's election, of course).

    First question - why does the left consider juvenile antics in college disqualifying? Second, like Blasey’s lawyer said, is it to prep public for their response to a possible overthrow of Roe v Wade? That is, the decision is being made by crude, juvenile men? I have to wonder if the left’s poor opinion of men come from their experience with lefty men. They sure don’t hang around conservative men.

    I'm extremely cynical and because of that, somewhat superficial in my thinking as I see it very clearly at this point. The plan is to stack the judiciary with Liberal judges who will moot the need for a Constitutional amendment. They'll just wave policy on through if it is challenged.

    I feel it's the same in terms of gamesmanship with California offering benefits, local voting rights, sanctuary cities etc. to illegal aliens. They need to pump up the population in order to gain more electoral college votes because despite all their bluster, they know they can't amend the Constitution to eliminate the Electoral College. They are looking to grease the skids on the way to total power.

    I heard Beto doubling down on his gun control ideas on TV yesterday and he has no problem as President snatching or forcing buybacks of AR-15's. The law is not to be considered; he has defined it as a moral imperative and that is good enough for him. And he say's it with absolute arrogant sanctimony. In a way, he has mimicked Trump's unapologetic aggressiveness.

    That is dangerous. Very dangerous.

    I sympathize with his emotion because he's from El Paso but that kind of over-ride of the Constitution will be applied time and time again if it is allowed.

    To the extreme Left (and this is my cynical opinion), the Constitution is not just a guideline or a suggestion; it is an impediment. It is a problem for them and they know it.

    nah You are not cynical. if you were you would understand that Beta's faux outrage is not because he is from El Paso and cares about the people. He is merely trying everything he can to be relevant.
    His latest ploy, on impeaching Kavanaugh, proves that

    It appears they jumped on that article from the newspaper of record as quickly as they jumped on the Jussie story. They coordinated the modern day lynching comments....

    The NY Times did the same thing last week. It claimed that Wilbur Ross threatened NOAA members to go along with what Trump said on Dorian or get fired. The NOAA administrator came out and said that was all hogwash. Most of the MSM just can't be relied upon to give accurate info, especially in regards to republicans.

    It's a ******** criticism. There's a reasonable case against the unitary executive theory. However, using it as a criticism is a matter of partisan politics. When Democrats want to limit a Republican administration, they worry about the unitary executive theory. When a Democratic administration is in charge, they don't give a crap. And of course, the reverse is also true.

    To be fair, if true, at least the allegations by Ford crossed the line beyond mere "juvenile antics." I could dismiss whipping out his schlong as "juvenile antics." I pretty much assume that Garmel and Sangre did that several times per week when they were in college. However, trying to forcibly rape is a serious crime. It's not unreasonable to consider that disqualifying. The problem is that the great weight of the evidence strongly suggested that her story was false.

    To borrow your rhetoric, it's about the taint. They are trying to delegitimize any 5-4 decision that comes down by being able to say that a "rapist" was part of the majority. What's somewhat ironic is that there's at least a decent chance that this "rapist" will turn out to be the decisive vote to uphold Roe like his predecessor was. Of course, it won't be spun that way if he does that. We'll hear about his "integrity" and willingness to be "independent" - much like we heard about his predecessor when he sided with the Left.

    Next, I suppose the left will be going after Kavanaugh’ farts during classroom. At least that has the aroma of taint.

    Squad member Pressley to push inquiry into Kavanaugh impeachment.
    ‘Squad’ member Pressley pushing Kavanaugh impeachment inquiry, despite allegation concerns

    "Statement from Pressley, who has made addressing sexual violence a core focus from the start of her career;
    ""I believe Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors."
    Pressley also used her personal Twitter account to retweet a post that included images of what appears to be text from the resolution. It calls for “Inquiring whether the House of Representatives should impeach Brett Michael Kavanaugh, Associate Justice for the Supreme Court of the United States of America,” and for the House Judiciary Committee to conduct depositions and take affidavits, serving subpoenas if necessary."

    I guess she is jealous of all the attention the other 3 are receiving.

    Nadler's response?
    "“We have our hands full with impeaching the president right now,” Nadler said on a radio show Monday."
    That right there is funny.

    Honestly, I'm surprised that Democrats actually want this fight. They very likely lost Senate seats because of their lunacy on Kavanaugh.

    What a display of virtue signaling. A classic statement if ever there was one. No evidence needed. I BELIEVE THEM.
