  • Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh Confirmation Circus, Day 2

    Well, day one was full of infantile histrionics by the Democrat Party who, like a small child, cant stop the inevitable and decide to throw themselves on the ground and have a tantrum. The wise adult ignores them, let them have their tantrum, and lets them tire themselves out. This time it is the entire Democrat Party making a spectacle of themselves by throwing the infantile fit while the adults allow the spastic gyrations to continue purely for entertainment and educational values. This stuff is very revealing and can be used as political ads in the future.

    The Dems can’t stop the inevitable. This behavior will backfire on them as they move closer and closer to insanity.

      I think Harris and Booker are just trying to get their faces out there so they’ll develop a high recognition quota. They both want to run in 2020

      Of course Liz will stomp them into the mud and walk it dry

      “But in the 1930s, during the Great Depression, the Statists successfully launched a counterrevolution that radically and fundamentally altered the nature of American society. President Franklin Roosevelt and an overwhelmingly Democratic Congress, through an array of federal projects, entitlements, taxes, and regulations known as the New Deal, breached the Constitution’s firewalls. At first the Supreme Court fought back, striking down New Deal programs as exceeding the limits of federal constitutional authority, violating state sovereignty, and trampling on private property rights. But rather than seek an expansion of federal power through the amendment process, which would likely have blunted Roosevelt’s ambitions, Roosevelt threatened the very makeup of the Court by proposing to pack it with sympathetic justices who would go along with his counterrevolution. Although Roosevelt’s plan failed, the justices had been effectively intimidated. And new justices, who shared Roosevelt’s statism, began replacing older justices on the Court. It was not long before the Court became little more than a rubber stamp for Roosevelt’s policies.”
      —Mark Levin, Liberty and Tyrrany, 2009

      Yep. This goes way back. Wilson started it, FDR injected it with Steroids. Wickard vs. Filburn (the wheat case) was during the FDR administration.

      That’s been walked back already. But Bash’s husband had to act quickly with the truth. Everyone in public life is a potential target of leftist lying tweets. The left gets more paranoid all the time. Delusional.

      Well, my Sister-in-law,. who is about as political as a gummy-bear, is watching the CBS coverage of the Kavanaugh Hearings, she is laughing her ass off, alternating between calling the Democrats and the Media lying assholes.

      I haven’t seen any of the hearings, so I don’t even know what she is laughing at.

      Good morning from Phoenix. I watched some of the Kavanaugh confirmations on the plane.
      These Democrats are a bad example for yoots. The are petulant children,and bad examples for kids.
      To me Durbin is the worst, he is my senator. That special interests lackey smeared Kavanaugh , who
      from what I can tell is a fine man all in front of his two small children.
      At least he did not call them Khymer Rouge, Nazis and Soviets like he called our troops.

      this Nike branding campaign doesn’t make sense…. unless, you realize a much bigger picture. A hidden bigger picture.

      “a multinational corporation would never make a branding decision adverse to their financial interests. Unless there is a hidden risk unrelated to what is visible on the surface.”

      @ doriangrey:
      Woodward is a dick, and so is his girlfriend Bernstein. they show up on cable news and drivel nonsense while
      giving an air of gravitas.
      They are. living off of old glories, but that is not totally justified. While investigating Watergate and writing they wanted
      to go with an unverified story. In all of the Presidents Men Ben Bradlee admonishes them ” You better be right”
      Turns out they were, but the point is that they represented an unverified story as factual.

      Guess what the New York Times did today? They printed an anonymous – there’s that word again – op-ed from someone who claims to be a senior person in the Trump admin. The NYT sez they know who the author is. The writer claims to be part of the ‘resistance’, doing their best to thwart Trump’s agenda and keep his ‘erratic’ personality on a steady keel. The writer also claims Trump is – get this – anti-trade.

      I should stop by more often, but frankly Jazzy McPimplebutt has become a bore. Hell, I should stop by HERE more often. Work and new baby has intruded.

      @ yenta-fada:

      Actually, the sign she gave is sign language for “assh*le.” Which is what I think she was flashing at the Senator. I’m surprised he or she hasn’t seen it before.

      And that stunt by Guttenberg and his flat-out lying of how it actually went down. I guess the idiot didn’t realize there’d be VIDEO of it from two different angles. Turns out it was Feinstein to invited him to sit in the audience, so this friggin’ stunt was pre-arranged.

      I do not remember ANY Republican Senator behaving this way when the most unqualified idiot ever nominated for the Supreme Court – Elena Kagan, had her confirmation hearing. NO judicial opinions, no time on ANY bench. But the GOP was respectful.

      And yeah, Booker, Harris, et al., are preening for the cameras in advance of their Presidential runs. And we will have a field day with both of them.

      It’s going to be a conundrum. Both check the race minority box, but Harris checks the gender box. But so does Liz. So, it’s Harris, 2 out of 2.

      But I think Liz has some big money behind her and will probably stomp both of them. And, she can come across as a really cool grandma type. Harris is a bitch on wheels, some hard edges there.


    33. 34 | September 5, 2018 8:21 pm

      Harris has a SERIOUS problem. It’s well known that she was the mistress of the Speaker of the Assembly (I don’t call her “Senator Spread Your Legs” for nothing) and got no-show California jobs from him.

      One problem is going to be her steadfast refusal to seek the death penalty for cop killers when she was SFDA and California AG. But her biggest problem is going to be the Bologna family. Father and two sons MURDERED by a criminal illegal affiliated with MS-13 that she as SFDA REFUSED to turn over to ICE, citing San Francisco’s “Sanctuary City” policy. That is NOT going to play well nationally. I can tell you flat out that if the “Sanctuary” policy was put to a vote of the citizens, it would be defeated. That’s why Sacramento made it a state policy.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Yes, and a more corrupt politician has never been seen in this state. I had a friend who had an executive level job with the San Francisco Airport Commission and he told me that Willie Brown was one of the biggest grifters and con men he’d ever seen. Willie Brown was in many ways one of the reasons term limits passed so easily in the state. He kept getting re-elected and paid off his buddies to keep his Speakership (jobs, contracts for family members). However, the REST of the State couldn’t stand his criminal ass.

      He actually believed HE was going to be the first Black President.

      OBAMA THREATENS TO CANCEL TAXPAYER-FUNDED SPEECH IN DENMARK IF HIS CONTRACT IS RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC

      Representatives for Barack Obama have threatened to cancel the former president’s upcoming paid speech at a Denmark university if details of his speaking contract are released to the public.

      Obama will participate in a moderated question and answer session on Sept. 28 at the University of Southern Denmark before local business leaders, university students and local dignitaries, according to Business Kolding, the event’s organizer.

      But the event has already sparked criticism from citizens of Denmark’s Kolding Municipality, which is providing 750,000 kroner, or $117,000, in taxpayer funds to support the behind-closed-doors event titled “A Conversation with President Barack Obama.”

      Kolding currently faces a deficit of 100 million kroner in its next year’s budget. The town’s mayor, Jørn Pedersen, justified using taxpayer dollars to fund Obama’s invite-only talk, claiming the event is effectively a marketing opportunity for the town, according to Danish news outlet JydskeVestkysten.

      https://dailycaller.com/2018/09/05/obama-speech-denmark-contract/

      Tell Denmark we’ll pay them to keep him.

      That’s one of the papers we get. It is well written and proves that Woodward is not fit to teach writing in a high school. Woodward completely misses the point of an incident. That does happen with dyslexia ya know.

      Actually it is a complex disorder that can run from reading letters incorrectly to many other difficulties with comprehension and expression of language. I had a friend who was diagnosed as dyslexic, but he got a PhD in Public Health. The brain is beyond complicated.

      @ eaglesoars:

      Here’s the actual definition of dyslexia.

      Reading is complex. It requires our brains to connect letters to sounds, put those sounds in the right order, and pull the words together into sentences and paragraphs we can read and comprehend.

      People with dyslexia have trouble matching the letters they see on the page with the sounds those letters and combinations of letters make. And when they have trouble with that step, all the other steps are harder.

      Dyslexic children and adults struggle to read fluently, spell words correctly and learn a second language, among other challenges. But these difficulties have no connection to their overall intelligence. In fact, dyslexia is an unexpected difficulty in reading in an individual who has the intelligence to be a much better reader. While people with dyslexia are slow readers, they often, paradoxically, are very fast and creative thinkers with strong reasoning abilities.

      Dyslexia is also very common, affecting 20 percent of the population and representing 80– 90 percent of all those with learning disabilities. Scientific research shows differences in brain connectivity between dyslexic and typical reading children, providing a neurological basis for why reading fluently is a struggle for those with dyslexia.

      Cynthia Nixon on getting single-payer health care in New York: ‘Pass it and then figure out how to fund it’

      In her quest to become New York’s next governor, Cynthia Nixon has advocated for a single-payer health care system in the state – something studies have shown would be a costly endeavor.

      The proposed New York Health Act (NYHA), which would establish universal health care for everyone in the state, including undocumented immigrants, would require the state’s tax revenue to increase by about 156 percent by 2022, according to a study by the RAND Corp. But it also found state spending on total health care under NYHA would be slightly lower – about 3 percent – by 2031 than under the current system.

      Nixon recently told the New York Daily News editorial board she did not yet have a plan to pay for single-payer.

      “Pass it and then figure out how to fund it,” Nixon said.

      Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who Nixon is challenging in the Democratic primary next week, has said it should be up to the federal government to pass a universal health care system. During a debate between the two candidates last month, Cuomo said the NYHA was good “in theory,” but would cost more than New York’s annual budget to implement it “in the long-term,” according to the Albany Times Union.

      Good morning. Just a thought, the NY Times will not reveal the identity of “Anonymous” who wrote the op-ed
      ,Journalistic integrity and all that.
      But when Trump speaks off the record the Media have no problem taking his remarks public.
      Apparently journalistic integrity is situational.


    80. 81 | September 6, 2018 9:54 am

      @ RIX:

      “Journalistic integrity” applies to “sources” tapped for information for reporting purposes. This is not a “source”. This is the New York Times allowing someone to post anonymously what may very well be LIBEL in their editorial pages without having to identify themselves or establish their bona fides for the statements made.

      For all we know, it was Omarosa. She is, after all, claiming to know who it was.

      Ah yes – I forgot that stunning little detail.

      Looks like Corey Booker is snotting that he’s going to release “Confidential” documents about Kavanaugh. Has been told that “running for President is not a reason to violate rules of the Committee.”

      I think this is the next phase in the concerted plan to delay Kavanaugh. Booker should be immediately removed from the Committee. Chances are there is nothing in these memos at all and Booker knows it, just wants to create the “illusion” that Kavanaugh is hiding something. He’s counting on being told he can’t release them. Would have served him right if Grassle had said “okay, release them. You will be removed from this Committee if you do, but hey, if you think it’s significant, you should be willing to put up.”

      Which means it’s entirely made up. And it also would explain why the NYT did not want to reveal the name. At this point Assorama is a laughing stock – her bombshell tapes revealed nothing, her so-called explosive “VIDEO” revealed only that Michael Cohen boarded a campaign flight. Wow….

      It also wouldn’t surprise me to find out she submitted this using the name of someone that still worked in the White House. After all, remember her claims that someone had told her they had the “n” word tape and when confronted, they said Assorama was full of it.

      nonsense. She’s only moderately shrewd, no one I would consider intelligent.

      When you look at stuff like this, ask yourself who has had practice doing this before? Look at the post-release analysis. Everyone focuses on a couple words, ‘lodestar’, etc., to throw suspicion on Pence, Mattis and Kelly. It’s no accident that everyone is asking the same questions and coming up with the same answers

      We’ve seen this before, but in another context.

      Code that Brennan released to prove that hacking was done by THE RUSSSIANS. And the post release analysis used the same tactics, language analysis. Oh! We’ve seen these pseudonyms and this code before in source we know were Russian.

      Yeah, fine, except it was utility code and people build libraries of that stuff so that they don’t have to re-invent the wheel every time. It says nothing about who was actually using the software.

      It was meaningless crap. And so is this. Whoever wrote this did it as psy-ops.


    92. 93 | September 6, 2018 4:14 pm

      @ eaglesoars:

      Actually, I was sort of joking about Assorama. But she’s all over Twitter saying she knows who it is. Probably to get herself back on TV.

      I seem to recall Rush saying that our intelligence services knew how to leave “code” behind if they broke into something that would indicate it was the Russians. Hmmm…..remember how they wouldn’t let the FBI near the servers but instead used CloudStrike? How far-fetched would it be to think that CloudStrike was instructed to leave those Russian breadcrumbs so that could claim “RUSSIANS!” and if government agencies subsequently examined the computers, they would find the signs of Russian involvement.

      Assange has claimed since Day One that it was not the Russians that gave him Hillary’s emails, even though the DNC wants you to look there and only there.

      THIS was SO annoying to listen to. Tracy keeps interrupting the agent to add background and hogs all the time. First FANTASTIC thing to report is that this is the beginning of accurate information from agents and others. They are building a website FOR President Trump and everybody else. There will be more about it coming up.

      I’m going to look around and see if I can find another source without commentary from Tracy. I don’t have yinz background to get the juice from the info. They discuss the SET UP in place during the campaign and before the election. They can prove that Obama changed the wording on his own Executive order AFTER the election. They know that there were spies within the Trump campaign operation.

      It is a series of interviews they have clearly planned in advance. I can only imagine the risks that these patriots are taking.

      Off to find something with fewer interruptions if I can. The crucial point is that the process of attacking the tentacles of the Deep State has started.

      I remembered it vaguely. Rogers was the one that went to Trump Tower as I recall.

      These people must have sh*t BRICKS the day after the election. Obama, Lynch, Comey, Rosenweasel, Clinton. Although I’m pretty sure they had a contingency plan to execute just in case. I’ve always wondered if their internal WH polling didn’t lie to them like the media did and they knew a real possibility existed that Clinton could lose – even if they didn’t share that intel with her.

      I’m sure Obama would have relished initially watching her be humiliated on election night even though he would have to scramble afterward to cover his administration’s malfeasance. Even then, I think he never believed Trump would be able to dismantle his agenda as fast as he did – they thought they’d drive him from office before that could happen or that Trump would be forced by public opinion to backtrack.

      Back to the Ann Vandersteel interviews – these guys were at a meeting in Norfolk with HUNDREDS of IC people from all the alphabet agencies to ensure the election wasn’t rigged.

      Since when does that happen? Am I the only one who is surprised that all the IC agencies monitor elections? How do they do that? Do they do the same with primaries? Then how did Hillary get away w/stealing hers?

      Another thing: a coalition of 119 IC people are going to be coming together to do this? Every last one of them signed some form of oath non-disclosure agreement that binds them unto death, so how do they do that w/o violating that oath?

      I surely don’t know, but good questions. I have a bias that wants this to be true. I did correct the Clapper involvement earlier in the thread. I have yet to check the websites. That’s next.

      Cory Booker may have reached a new low today:

      Booker Accuses Reporter of Violating Constitution by Asking Him a Question

      Sen. Cory Booker accused a reporter of violating the U.S. Constitution after he asked the New Jersey Democrat a question in the halls of Congress on Thursday.

      During the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Booker threatened to release confidential documents relating to Kavanaugh’s service as a lawyer in the George W. Bush administration.

      “I understand the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” Booker said before releasing Kavanaugh’s old emails, adding, “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”

      After the display, however, the Washington Post reported that the “confidential” emails were already cleared for public release before Booker’s dare, citing both Democratic and Republican aides on the judiciary committee.

      “We cleared the documents last night shortly after Senator Booker’s staff asked us to,” confirmed Bill Burck, Bush’s presidential records representative. “We were surprised to learn about Senator Booker’s histrionics this morning because we had already told him he could use the documents publicly. In fact, we have said yes to every request made by the Senate Democrats to make documents public.”

      When Wall Street Journal reporter Byron Tau asked Booker whether his actions during the morning session were a stunt, the senator accused him of violating the U.S. Constitution:

      Democrats knew full well that the documents that Booker and Hirono released this morning were no longer confidential, according to D+R lawmakers and aides.

      I asked @CoryBooker if his remarks in committee were a stunt. He told me I violating the constitution by being in his way.

      — Byron Tau (@ByronTau) September 6, 2018

      It is not entirely clear what Booker was referring to, but the Speech or Debate Clause of the Constitution does state that members of Congress cannot be arrested on their way to session and “in going to and from [session] … shall not be questioned in any other Place.” The prohibition against “questioning” lawmakers on their way to session, however, has generally been interpreted to apply to law enforcement, not reporters.

      @ eaglesoars:

      I forget his name – Catalus, maybe? – was the Roman general responsible for finishing off Spartacus. He marched them all toward Rome. Then, he’d take a bunch from the back of the line, and when the line had marched out of sight, crucify that bunch, and on and on. Miles and miles of decomposing bodies for months. Spartacus had been killed in battle before that, so he missed his star turn.

      Everything Elon Musk does, is about going to Mars. EVERYTHING. Tesla is about going to Mars. His Battery factories are about going to Mars. SpaceX is about going to Mars.

      Elon Musk is that rare individual with a vision willing to do damned near anything to achieve that vision.

      Keep this in mind. The atmosphere in Mars is .002 millibars, and 90 percent carbon dioxide. There will be ZERO internal combustion power generation on Mars. All vehicles will be electric. Most power consumed there will be Solar, there will be NO fossil fuel generated electricity. Electricity must be generated and stored by means that on earth are to expensive to be of any significant use.

      Elon is by most peoples standards eccentric, but his is a genius, and he is driven to do something that just 30 years ago it was conceded by everyone that only a Government could do.

      Yes, the government does subsidize his businesses, that because his goal of putting men on Mars coincides with NASA’s goal of doing the exact same thing. The US Government is subsidizing Elon Musk the exact same way it subsidized Boeing and Lockheed-Martin back in the 1960’s for NASA’s Apollo missions. The Exact same way it subsidized Intel in the 1980’s for the Space Shuttles.

      (For those unaware, Gordon Moore was a engineer for Fairchild Semiconductor who was lured away from Fairchild to produce processors on a chip for NASA’s use in the Space Shuttle, the 8086 processor was designed for the Space Shuttle, we profited from that design)

      Elon Musk came out of the closet a few weeks ago as a Conservative and Trump supporter (he maxed out his political contributions on Trump $115,000.00 or so). If the end is nigh for Musk, its because the media now hate him and will do anything to destroy him because they discovered he supports Trump and other genuine Conservatives.

      When I was making the Arm for the International Space Station that captures the DragonX Capsules (the resupply capsules) what the SpaceX engineers told me was, that the Tesla automobiles were always designed as vehicles for Mars. That’s why the government subsidizes Tesla, because it is a “Proof of concept” vehicle.

      Yes, it would be nice for Tesla to earn a profit, but pretty much Elon Musk is a NASA proof of concept creation himself. Back in the early 2000’s NASA and the US Government decided that space exploration was to expensive for any government to do because popular support was to fickle. So they decided that a significant portion of the financial burden had to be shifted to private corporations.

      In order to convince private corporations to take this risk, they invented Elon Musk. Elon was/is a private citizen with the dream of space exploration, so NASA made him the face of private industry tackling space exploration and kicked off the whole private corporation assault on space exploration. Now we have Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson also throwing their hats in the ring. Which they would not in all likelihood have done without Elon going there first.

      Sometimes, you have to prime the pump before you get anything out of it.
