Excuses, excuses…

Well…how bad of a SC nominee do you have to be to have the entire repub party lying and trying to hide who you are before a vote to confirm you? That’s what’s going on with Brett Kavanaugh, the worst nominee in the history of the court and he is someone who should never get anywhere near the supreme court…or the court where he currently sits for that matter. The latest trial balloon that has been floated by Orrin Hatch and his minions is that Kavanaugh’s rape accuser is mistaking him for someone else…someone who might look a little like Kavanaugh but it’s not him…and they have smeared this middle school teacher who has nothing to do with any of this scandal over the past few days…even going so far as to provide maps and photos of the interior of the house this man lived in when he was younger…the only problem is that Kavanaugh’s accuser knew this other person and has emphatically said that she knows the difference between them and the other guy was her friend…she even went so far as to visit him in the hospital when he was sick so I’m pretty sure that this is just another of the lies that have been spewed trying to get this lying, sex assaulter on the SC. Now, I don’t remember any dem candidate having to have people lie for them and protect them from accusations of sexual assault…or from the accusations of multiple counts of perjury, or having to hide 90% of the dems records since it is known that the information in those records would disqualify them. Only on the repubs watch does this kind of thing happen…the corruption smells to high heaven…

Attempted rape…

Well…just a short on on the fact that the repubs are minimizing the allegation that Brett Kavanaugh attempted to rape a 15 year old girl when he was 17, saying since he didn’t finish it, it’s all okay and he was a good guy for it….never mind that the 15 year old was kicking and screaming and trying to push two 17 year old men off her….and has been traumatized ever since…which I can understand. We just need to look at other cases where the privilege of the rich and connected was not in play to see how serious this crime is treated across this country…just the other day, a 20 year old man was sentenced to 40 years to life for exactly the same crime that Kavanaugh is accused of…and there have many other cases that I have seen that had sentences that ran from 10-20 years in prison…and now the repubs won’t even let the normal investigation of a SC nominee happen? The corruption of the repub party is complete…with the destruction of the constitution done by McConnell with not letting the Garland nomination even come to a vote, and now protecting an accused rapist and liar and jamming his nomination through in direct contravention of the normal rules of the senate, McConnell and his cronies will be remembered as the worst of the worst…and I hope they rot in hell after the damage they’ve done….

More Kavanaugh…

Well…are there any worst people on the the planet than repubs? After a woman came forward to relate her trauma from Kavanaugh attempting to rape her when she was 15, the repubs have been in overdrive trying both to try to discredit the witness and to move the goalposts of acceptable behavior by saying it was just “roughhousing” and that every boy or man does it. Now, they are going to have a hearing on Monday where the woman is going to testify under oath followed by Kavanaugh…but, there is one thing we already know and that is that Kavanaugh is a liar and has perjured himself multiple times during every damn confirmation process he has been in since his first judgeship. Let’s remember something else that shows how big of a liar he is….he was part of Ken Starr’s investigation of the Clintons and personally pushed to spend millions of dollars to investigate Vince Foster’s suicide and pushed conspiracy theory after conspiracy theory even to the point that he screamed that Hillary had Foster murdered for something, something….this is the kind of person the repubs think is qualified to be a SC judge…I want to know how the quarter of a million dollars in Kavanaugh’s gambling debts magically disappeared just before his hearing started….who does he owe that bailout to and can he be blackmailed to rule for whoever did it? This is the worst candidate for the court in the history of the country and he needs to withdraw from the process and then resign from his current judgeship…now….

Kavanaugh should resign…

Well…is anyone else as tired of the entitled little shit Kavanaugh as I am? I guess it wasn’t enough for the repubs that he has perjured himself many, many time during the confirmation hearings, but I wonder if these credible accusations of sexual assault will be? Na….these days, being accused of sexual assault is almost a requirement for any repub candidate for office and Grassley and McConnell are still going to try to ram his nomination through…and I really hope they do…the political fallout will be immense and may even cost them the senate. But, that’s not what this whole allegation is about…it is about a frickin entitled punk from an exclusive boys school who thought, and still thinks that women are “things” to be used and who do not deserve equal rights…and who tried to rape a young woman…the sick thing is that repubs are trying to normalize that behavior, saying that any man being investigated has something like that in his past and it should be left there. I have news for you, repubs, not every man has done those kind on things…in fact, I can’t think of one man or boy from my teenage years who would ever think about forcing themselves on any of the girls that we knew….but, we had morals and still do…something that can’t be said for any repub these days. Let’s add another sick thing to this whole debacle…during the hearings, the repubs trotted Kavanaugh’s daughters out to show how he was such a great “family man” and that popped this question into my head: Brett, what would you do to the person if someone did to your daughters what you did to that girl? I have had just too damn much of smarmy assholes like Kavanaugh getting away with abusing women and taking away their rights….I hope ole Brett realizes that 52% of the people in this country are women and they have had enough…as I have…impeach this son of a bitch…

Manafort has flipped…

Well…not sure how long this one is going to be but I just wanted to acknowledge that Paul Manafort has flipped and is now going to work with Mueller to  fill in the gaps in the trump/Russia investigation, but not just that, Manafort has been in repub politics since back in the Reagan administration and has seen all of the scams and lawbreaking that has happened in the past 40 years by the repubs…but, more than that, he saw all of the conspiracy that got trump installed as president even though he was only campaign manager for 4 months..but those 4 months were the decisive ones in the election…so, I think Mueller has enough now to charge trump but I also think he is going to continue to build the cases in the methodical way he has done through the entire investigation…and remember that no one who Mueller has charged has walked away from the charges…and trump won’t either…impeach…

Grading on the curve…

Well…not sure how much I’ll be here over the next few days with getting ready to head out to Baltimore tomorrow and then on the move until I get home Sunday…but, I am taking my computer with me so I’ll try to come here for at least a short one every day.. But, first…I want to comment on the idiot in chief’s comments on the abject failures of his administration to deal with the hurricanes that hit the US last year…but, in the addled mind of idiot boy, he rated himself an A+ for his personal involvement and how well he did to help people that were hit by them…going so far as to say that, in secret, people are saying that it couldn’t have been handled any better…and people are going to find out soon how wonderful a job he did….hmmm…does that sound familiar? “Heck of a job, Brownie” is what ole GW had to say to his failure of a FEMA director and his response to Katrina where thousands died because of their ineptitude. Can you say “grading on a curve”…it’s an A+ that at least 3,000 and as many as 5,000 Puerto Ricans died on his watch due to the indifference that trump and his minions showed to the “brown” people that every damn one of his administration hates?  And now we have another huge hurricane bearing down on the country and the only work being done is to steal money from FEMA to build more places to lock up immigrants? I really hope that this hurricane is not as bad as the forecast but maybe people need a shock that climate change is real and is resulting in more and stronger storms…and there are two more backed up right behind Florence and 4 more in the Pacific heading toward Hawaii…and folks, there has never been 7 storms at a time…ever in the history of records…so I wonder what could be causing it? Impeach…

It’s meltdown day…

Well….on the anniversary of 9/11, we have another day of meltdown coming with the publishing of Woodward’s book on the idiot trump and idiot boy’s reaction to it..I found the one from yesterday just so damn laughable…the moron threatening to write his own book about his “well-oiled” administration…now, I’m pretty sure that it is ‘well-oiled” but not in the way trump thinks…more from the barrels of Jack Daniels that his staff needs to just show up to work for the orange blowhard. To think that trump has the capability to write anything longer than a tweet just shows how deep his delusions run…he can’t even read anything that is more than a couple of bullet points long before he looks out the window and yells “squirrel” to no one in particular…and then praises himself for saying it…just the bestest squirrel yelling that anyone has ever done anywhere and then he has done his two minutes of work for the day and goes back to the residence and watches fox news while he gorges on Big Macs and cookies. I suppose we should be thankful that trump has the attention span of a gnat…I guess that limits the damage he can do…but it is still terrifying…impeach…

Nike’s online sales up 31% this week…

Well…after Nike announced that Colin Kaepernick was going to be the face of it’s new ad campaign, the MAGA idiots out there went nuts cutting up their Nike clothing and burning their Nike shoes…just brilliant to destroy something you’ve already paid for just to “own” the libs that they think run everything….and then came the usual calls from the righties to boycott Nike since they support Kaepernick “disrespecting” the national anthem…but, let’s get this straight..the protest are not against the flag, or the military, or the national anthem as the right has lied and lied about…they are about the unfair treatment that minorities still get every damn day by police in this country…and it is Kaepernick’s right under the first amendment to do it. So, today…Nike announced that it’s online sales have exploded by 31% since the ad campaign was announced…and what I have to say about that is ha, ha….and, would you MAGA shits please announce a boycott of my site? I could use a 31% increase in readership….geez….

How much perjury is enough?

Well…I have a really, really simple question for every damn repub in this country: How much perjury is enough? How much perjury should Brett Kavanaugh be able to commit before he is rejected for the SC? Eight, nine, ten? It is already documented that he has lied to the senate at least six times…and that is six felonies, folks…but the repubs sit there and conspire to place this unqualified liar on the court for the rest of his life. But this isn’t even the worst of this guy…this is a guy who believes that a sitting president can’t even be questioned about committing crimes…that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided and he lied to the senate when he said that Roe was “settled law” that he won’t vote to overturn…we have the damn e-mails that prove he was lying and can now understand why the repubs are trying to keep his record secret….even in this day and age, this far right woman hater believes and has stated openly every time that birth control is used by a woman it is in fact “an abortion” and he will vote to outlaw all birth control. What do you think about this guy ladies? Do you want to go back to the days when there was no birth control and families of 9, 10, or 12 kids was commonplace? A vote for Kavanaugh will deliver us back to the bad old days where women were not in control of their bodies or lives…so, place some calls to your senators and get out to vote in November…this one is important, folks….impeach…

Cripes, what a liar…

Well…if you look in the background of the “qualified” SC candidate Brett Kavanaugh, you can see that his entire career in the repub party was built on lies and conspiracy theories…starting with his pushing of the blatant lie that the Cintons somehow murdered an aide of theirs, Vince Foster, and then covered it up so craftily that there was never any evidence uncovered. Then, he moved into the Bush WH where he was a cheerleader for torture and was even involved with the SC court case that installed GW into the presidency before that…so we can see that instead of the “fair and unbiased” bullshit that the repubs in the senate are pushing, we see a partisan hack who lies as much as trump does…at least the dems are calling him out on his perjury in the hearings and exposing him as a criminal for his acceptance of stolen e-mails that he used to get other unqualified judges installed…but, with today’s repub party, criminality is seen as a plus and a qualification for any job, not the disqualifier that it has been until this group of thugs came along…I still stand by the idea that if this moron is confirmed, we need to impeach him as soon as we take back the house….impeach…
