Open Thread

—Ace of Spades

Discuss things not related to Dr. Blasey Ford and her endless excuses and evasions.

Oh, wait. I found #TheHottestTake. The hottest take of all.

See, if you believe in the Bible, get this, you must believe Blasey Ford's fuzzy memories.

Because, like, her own testament was written closer to Current Year.



Weird thing about a testament, though: It requires testifying.

Something that Feminist Saint Ford is, for whatever reason, curiously reluctant to do.

Here's this dear-heart's bio, by the way:

Co-Founder of @RakkasanTea and @McPhersonSqGrp | Columnist, @NYDailyNews | Former Obama guy |

These f***ers have anti-Christian Tourettes. They just can't help themselves.

Feinstein: "Show some heart" and "Wait until Dr. Ford feels that she can come before the committee," Presumably Some Time in 2021 or Maybe 2025
Grassley: The Drop-Dead Deadline is 10PM Tonight. If We Don't Get a "Yes," We Vote on Monday.

—Ace of Spades

Democrats: "Show some heart. Wait until Dr. Ford feels that she can come before the committee."

I mean, she's only had Thirty Six Fucking Years to process this traumatic event that almost certainly didn't happen.



Mitch McConnell says: We'll get right on that, sister.



Reminds me of a movie I saw once.

Grassley just extanded the deadline for the delicate Ms. Ford to accept the request to testify -- but attached an ultimatum to it.

It's a drop-dead deadline:

@ChadPergram 32m

Grassley: I'm extending the deadline for response yet again to 10 o'clock this evening. I'm providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford's attorneys don't respond or Dr. Ford decides not to testify.

How much time must elapse before the Cucked-Out, Tucked-Under Enforcers of Twitter Consensus Opinion feel comfortable saying that this woman seems to be playing games and seems to be very, very reluctant to have her claims questioned?

Truth is protector. And people feel vulnerable without it.

Thanks to weft-cut loop for the Grassley update.

CNN's Director of Thumb Programming Chris Cillizza: It Is "Whataboutism" to Ask Why Cory Booker's Admitted Groping-Without-Consent of a Girl Too Drunk To Even Remember The Incident Should Not be Disqualifying From High Office

—Ace of Spades

Cillizza says there's no comparison between the two events -- after all, Booker admitted his near-rape, whereas Kavanaugh has denied his own.

John Sexton notes the problem with Chris Cillizza's latest venomous stupidity:

Let’s step away from the specifics and look at this another way. Is the person who admits to a crime, say bank robbery, a better person than the one who is accused but denies robbing a bank at all? The only fair answer is that it depends on the facts. If the denier is actually guilty and he's lying about it to avoid prison, he’s a worse person than the guy who admitted he's a crook and repented. On the other hand, if he’s innocent and telling the truth about not being a bank robber, then he’s a much better person than the guy who is a bank robber.

This level of nuance seems to penetrate Cillizza's awareness and yet the fact that Kavanaugh could be innocent is literally a parenthetical. That suggests he's not taking this real possibility very seriously. The only fair thing to say here is that we don’t know the truth and therefore we don’t know if Booker's story is better or worse.

I'd go further: I'd guess Cillizza not only believes that Kavanaugh is guilty despite denying the accuastion, but that he also believes Booker is innocent despite confessing to it. I imagine Cillizza thinks that Booker was just apologizing "out of an excess of #MaleAlly Feminist Heroism" or trying to appear #SuperWoke by confessing to sins he didn't even commit.

Twitchy has some good push-back to this potato-shaped individual who wears highly structured suits to hide his girthy shame, including this call-back:

Did Blasey Ford's Advisor Rikki Seidman Tease Their "Strategy" for Borking Kavanaugh In July?

—Ace of Spades

Strange that so many question so much about Ford's claims -- why she never told anyone about this until this year (she mentioned an assault in 2012, we're told, but did not name Kavanaugh), why she's now afraid to fly, why the endless delays and gamesmanship with format, etc. -- but the NeverTrumpers have decided that it's verboten for Trump to ask a related question, "Why did she never talk to police?"

Matter of fact, she could make a report to police right now, Twitter Lore has it. According to Twitter experts, there is no statute of limitations in Maryland for attempted rape.

Eh. Maybe she doesn't want to fly to Maryland for it.

Anyway, the GOP put out this video of Blasey Ford's "adviser" Rikki Seidman talking up a coming "strategy" which could peel off two of Kavanugh's female supporters, Collins and Murkowski.

"While I think at the outset, looking at the numbers in the Senate, it’s not extremely likely that the nominee can be defeated. I would absolutely withhold judgement as the process goes on. I think that I would not reach any conclusion about the outcome in advance," Seidman says in the recording.

Was she teasing a post-hearing surprise that was triggered by Sen. Dianne Feinstein?

Seidman speculated that Kavanaugh was chosen prior to Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement, and that liberal groups -- who would oppose any Trump nominee -- were caught flat-footed.

"Over the coming days and weeks," Seidman says in the recording that seems to have occurred shortly after Kavanaugh's announcement, "there will be a strategy that will emerge, and I think it's possible that that strategy might ultimately defeat the nominee."

Hmmm... wonder what she had in mind, huh?

Is this okay for the GOP to release? Or is this an unconscionable attack on the credibility someone we're going to assume is a victim despite the lack of any evidence to establish she is a victim?

Does it all just come down to whether Trump said it, or whether someone else said it?

CNN's All-Republican Woman Panel on Kavanaugh Accusation Doesn't Go The Way They Thought It Would

Literally Unf*ckingbelievable: "Dr. Ford" Doesn't Want to Come to DC to Testify, Because She Doesn't Want to Fly, Now

—Ace of Spades

So sorry to inconvenience you, Dr. Ford, whose credibility must not be questioned, Polite Company Conservatives keep telling me.



"Amtrack can get her there by Monday," Vashta Nerada observes. And he's right!

John Madden didn't want to fly and yet could still make it from NY to LA to call a game in an RV. The Women's March could hire an RV for this woman with a couple of drivers to change shifts. They could have women hold hands in support along each highway she traveled.

And yet, she's using "I don't wanna fly" as her latest excuse to get out of testifying.

Would Ben Shapiro, Ed Morrissey, Steve Hayes, and the rest of the You Must Not Challenge the Credibility of this Credibility-Challenged Super-Victim mind if noted that I don't think "I don't want to fly" is a credible excuse to get out of testifying about an alleged rape that is meant to block a Supreme Court nomination?

Are we allowed to say that her constant Dog Ate My Homework excuses aren't credible and are becoming absurd without the Ben Shapiro, Ed Morrissey, Senorita Steven Hayes, David French and other members of the Fake Conservatives' Ladies Auxiliary getting hysterical about it?

Here's an idea: Just subpeona her already. When she starts screaming "You're raping me all over again," which she will, then just say "Well, she won't testify" and call the fucking vote.

thanks to artisinal 'ette.

Coming Soon: Whenever an alleged victim acts in a way that seems inconsistent with her claims, the Accuasation Apologists begin telling us that it's completely normal for victims to act that way.

If Mattress Girl keeps texting iloveyouiloveyouiloveyou to her alleged rapist, and asking when she will see him again, they claim, "Well, rape victims sometimes develop post-traumatic dependency on their victimizer" or whatever.

If an alleged rape victim then hooks up with another guy hours after her alleged rape -- which happened in one alleged campus rape this past year -- they'll say something like "Well, sometimes rape victims seek a consensual experience to wash away the unconsensual one" or whatever.

So anyway, I'm now expecting the Twitter Experts -- who are not experts, but they are on twitter -- to tell us that "Rape victims often develop a fear of flying 30 years post-assault."

Whenever an alleged victim demonstrates behavior that seems inconsistent with their claims, the Twitter Experts rush out to assure us that not only is this consistent with the accusation, but in fact proves the allegation even more.

NYT: Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein "Suggested" He Could Wear a Wire to Record Trump to Make a Case for a 25th Amendment Removal

—Ace of Spades

Fire him.

A savvy analyst posits that this leak is all about Rosenstein trying to make himself unfireable. He's trying to drum up support from the leftwing (as if he needed more of it) that he's protecting the Deep State from Trump, and that any firing would therefore be another Obstruction of Justice or whatever.

Fire him. Fire him now. Damn the consequences. Fire his ass.

The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit.

Mr. Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017 when Mr. Trump's firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director plunged the White House into turmoil. Over the ensuing days, the president divulged classified intelligence to Russians in the Oval Office, and revelations emerged that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Comey to pledge loyalty and end an investigation into a senior aide.

Mr. Rosenstein was just two weeks into his job. He had begun overseeing the Russia investigation and played a key role in the president's dismissal of Mr. Comey by writing a memo critical of his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. But Mr. Rosenstein was caught off guard when Mr. Trump cited the memo in the firing, and he began telling people that he feared he had been used.

Mr. Rosenstein made the remarks about secretly recording Mr. Trump and about the 25th Amendment in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and F.B.I. officials. Several people described the episodes, insisting on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The people were briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by F.B.I. officials, including Andrew G. McCabe, then the acting bureau director, that documented Mr. Rosenstein's actions and comments.

None of Mr. Rosenstein's proposals apparently came to fruition. It is not clear how determined he was about seeing them through, though he did tell Mr. McCabe that he might be able to persuade Attorney General Jeff Sessions and John F. Kelly, then the secretary of homeland security and now the White House chief of staff, to mount an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment.

Also, fire whoever it was who suggested this tool for this position, assuming that person hasn't left the White House yet.

Also, start scrutinizing anyone else was suggested by whoever vouched for Rosenstein and look for reasons to fire them as well.

Update: Rosenstein denies this.

Fire him anyway. An accusation of wrongdoing is, the liberals assure me, enough to convict.

Meanwhile, Andrew McCabe does not deny it in a response. His non-denial is so plainly a non-denial you have to imagine he intended it to be read as a confirmation.

Left-Wing Groups Like The Women's March May Have Violated the IRS' Rules for Non-Profits By Essentially Paying People to Break the Law

—Ace of Spades

They paid people's costs for arrests and fines for disrupting the Kavanaugh hearing -- which is against IRS rules.

Don't worry, though; the #Resistance will make sure they pay no price.

Left-wing nonprofit groups that orchestrated disruptions during Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearings likely violated IRS rules, which can result in their loss of tax-exempt status, according to an investigation by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

TheDCNF listened in on a conference call Monday where organizers for three groups behind the protests called on activists to continue their "civil disobedience" as part of their efforts to "shut down" Monday's upcoming confirmation proceedings.

These activist organizations -- which include Women's March, the Center for Popular Democracy and Housing Works -- provided cash for the post-and-forfeits [fines in lieu of jail time for misdemeanors] to protesters who didn't show up with their own money before they faced arrest for their conduct, CPD Action national field organizer Darius Gordon and Housing Works national advocacy coordinator Paul Davis both said on Monday's call.

...

"If you do not have access to your cash we will certainly be able to arrange to get it to you before the action," Davis said, noting that they had done so at previous anti-Kavanaugh protests.
...


Wong told CNN her group raised more than six figures in the first two days of Kavanaugh's hearings, funds that were used to provide travel, accommodation, legal training and bail for its members who engaged in illegal activity.

But organizing such conduct isn't allowed under IRS rules and is "incompatible with charity and social welfare," according to IRS rules. Ruling 75-384 "holds that an organization... that planned and sponsored protest demonstrations at which members were urged to commit acts of civil disobedience did not qualify for IRC 501(c)(3) or (4) exemption," the IRS states in a document detailing activities that would bar organizations from tax exemption.

Texts Show Disagreement Among Allegedly-Unified Intelligence Community Members on Russian Interference; Some Dismissed Accusations as Coming from Those "With Partisan Axes to Grind"

—Ace of Spades

But I thought they were unanimous and the evidence was unquestionable.

Strangely enough, some of these concerns were voiced by... Peter Strzok, who is himself an intense partisan, but who apparently found some partisans too partisan.

For most of the past two years, the U.S. intelligence community has presented a united front on all the key conclusions in the January 2017 report that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

Now, congressional investigators have unearthed text messages and emails showing the FBI feared there were some in the intelligence community with "partisan axes to grind" and suggesting there could be no singular conclusion that Moscow wanted to help elect Donald Trump.

For instance, then-FBI agent Peter Strzok's text and email messages in December 2016 and January 2017 show his boss feared that giving some classified information to the White House, then-Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper and the larger intelligence community in the final days of the Obama administration might result in political abuse.

...


Just before Christmas in 2016, as Trump was preparing to assume the presidency, Strzok and Page texted sentiments of concern that there was some conflicts between classified intelligence and the information already in the intelligence community.

Those conflicts, they feared, would surface as the FBI made its final contribution to the intelligence community report on Russia meddling.

Maybe demanding that she testify would be akin to rape, as is claimed of another leftwing ringer.

"Christine Blasey Ford is the Eric Clanton of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. You morons remember Clanton, don't you? He was the antifa pussy who clubbed a Trump supporter with a bike lock, and I say pussy because just look at the video: He's hanging in the back of the crowd, then suddenly bursts out in front, hits the guy when he isn't looking, and disappears back into the crowd. Clanton obviously didn't expect any consequences for his cowardly attack, but hadn't counted on being tracked down and identified by 4chan. And it's the same with Ford. She expected to just toss in a stink bomb and then disappear back into anonymity as just another #MeToo victim. And the Democrats expected the GOP to just flop like the Cleveland Browns late in the season and that would be that. Oh,and completely scrubbing her internet presence made her bad faith even more obvious. That's like your wife coming home and you suddenly have a completely blank browser history. That's not innocent housekeeping, that's a tell."

The Morning Report 9/21/18

trutgras.jpg

Good morning kids. Friday is here and as I hit the post button we are a scant 2 hours 8 minutes from the magic 10 o'clock hour where we will learn whether or not the lying stooge planted by the Dems will come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and lie some more at a Monday hearing or not. What surprises the Democrat-Left-Media complex may or may not have up their collective skirt, such as new witnesses and/or "victims" to inflict on us or demands of a change of venue, the continued pressing for an FBI investigation into the nominee, an investigation as to why the FBI won't investigate the nominee, what questions the Accuser/Liar will be permitted to be asked of her and by whom, only agreeing to be deposed when there's world peace, etc. etc. to me are wholly irrelevant, headline-generating though they doubtless will be.

The only thing that I am waiting to find out come 10:00 this morning is will Chuck Grassley step up to the plate and do his duty as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee and as an honorable, decent, law-abiding man if the Dems attempt to continue to abuse Brett Kavanaugh, his family, the American people who elected the President who nominated this man and in so doing, sabotage the will of said people, the proper functioning of government and the rule of law?

With everything we have been forced to endure not only with this shameless and shameful spectacle, but for decades now, not only with Justice Clarence Thomas but with virtually every single judge or political appointee nominated by a Republican president since Ronald Reagan if not Richard Nixon, it is high time that the GOP under Senators Grassley and McConnell and the entire majority in Congress swat this garbage down and say "enough!"

At the risk of being repetitive, the Supreme Court, along with lower courts represents perhaps the most powerful weapon by which the Democrat-Left cements much, if not all, of its unpopular and anti-constitutional policies into permanent, eternal, immutable law. Even after at least 50 years of controlling the media and brainwashing several generations of the citizenry via the schools, they know that they cannot achieve what they want via the ballot box without lying to the electorate (and that may yet change considering the internal struggle between the stealth Trotskyites and the bust-out Khmer Rouge factions within the Democrat party). Couple this with the fact that they are still licking their wounds over 2016 and voila.

They will not accept rejection because they cannot accept rejection (I wont't go into a diatribe about elitism, the Frankfurt school, progressives and the Fabian socialists but many of you understand how that fits in, and it's not needed). The long march towards what was seen as the inevitable overthrow of America as founded and fundamentally transforming it into some sort of socialist "utopia" has been stopped cold by the election of Donald Trump. Thus the insane lie that he with the help of the Russians stole the election, along with the usual anti-American, anti-free market, anti-Judeo Christian bromides has so infected the Left that those who manufactured the propaganda believe it.

Their will-to-power is such that we are seeing the putative political leaders vomit up mind-bogglingly insane, hate-filled rhetoric as they rage against we the people who have rejected them, and as the President's policies are succeeding beyond what anyone had hoped for and in stark contrast to the previous 8 years and to the conventional wisdom of the Acela Corridor/Ivy League/Coastal Elite weltanschauung. But I digress...

What it all boils down to is the Democrat-Left-Media Complex is now naked in its ambition to recapture the reins of power at whatever the cost - even if it means , fomenting violent confrontation, destroying the rule of law, common decency and the norms and customs that hold the threads of our society together. And those threads are gossamer thin to begin with.

Despite all of this, the mindset of the GOP Establishment is such that it either a) does not recognize the mortal danger that this nation is in because its members, especially the older ones, live in a time warp and view the rhetoric as mere politics b) don't care about what the Dems are doing because they're bought and paid for by big corporate interests and just go along to line their pockets, or some combination of both.

If I want to be optimistic, I can say that Grassley's letter to the Accuser/Liar and her lawyers, amounted to an ultimatum and that that this Feinstein-engineered stunt was the last straw. And when even loud and proud anti-Trumpers like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker say enough's enough, then that gives you an idea that they are not amused by this. But on the down side, I have to recognize that whether for the reasons above or whatever, it's just not in the nature of the GOP to be confrontational. Will some stunt pulled either late today, in time for the weekend panel shows, or even on Monday be enough to make the GOP cry uncle?

This nomination, right here and right now, especially 2 weeks before the Supreme Court begins its new session and 7 weeks out from the midterms is beyond crucial; it's for all the marbles. Chuck Grassley must stand firm and draw a sharp line in the sand. If the Democrat-Left is allowed to prevent Brett Kavanaugh from taking his rightly deserved place as an associate justice on the SCOTUS, it will be perhaps a blow to the civil society and the American system that we can really never recover from.

Senator Grassley, come 10:00 o'clock this morning, if the Accuser/Liar and/or her representatives have not met the conditions laid out in your letter in order to hold Monday's hearing, and/or make further demands outside what is laid out in your letter, you must immediately dismiss the accusations and call for a vote within the Senate Judiciary Committee as to the nomination, yea or nay, of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and if the yeas have it, then advance to the full Senate for a vote to consider the matter.

Obviously much of the other buckets we have include items that touch on this insanity. Most importantly, Brett Kavanaugh's wife and kids are now getting death threats but no word yet if Eric Swallows-all has said "boo-hoo," Cory Spartacus Blucher wrote an op-ed years ago admitting that he attempted to cop a feel off of a drunk high school classmate, Maizie Hirono eagerly took money from an admitted Dem wife-beater, Tammy Baldwin nixed a fundraiser featuring Ford's shyster lawyer, Doomberg was invited to speak at a Lefty women's group just a few days after defending pervert harasser Charlie Rose, Sheldon Whorehouse is a whore, Kirsten Jello-Brain is an idiot, Mark Levin rails against the totalitarian Left, Soros needs to be deported to Hungary and Rush Limbaugh comments on Frank Luntz warning that this whole thing could be Midterm poison for the Democrats.

Meanwhile, at a rally in Vegas, PDT urged rally-goers and those watching against complacency in the Midterms, wants the vote on Kavanaugh without delay and railed against Congress for an insane budget which has no provisions for funding the border wall; way to go GOP.

I'll gloss over the rest as I know you're itching to comment in the run up to 10:00AM, Tubby Riefenstahl is threatening to go to Canada if us evil right-wingers torpedo his latest propaganda porn flick, homes built in New Orleans by Brad Pitt's foundation are falling apart, and a fine essay about the President and what we're up against.

Hold on kids. Tick tock tick tock...


Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

Mistaken Identity?

—Ace

I’m not happy about Ed Whelan’s offer of proof of mistaken identity by the accuser, as it basically just accuses another guy who is probably himself innocent. I don’t think this accuser has a strong enough claim or a credible enough presentation of her claim to warrant Finding the Real Rapist. Is this there one at all?

Nevertheless, Ed Whelan has stoked enough interest with his promise of 100% vindication I don’t see any point to supppressing this. So, with no endorsement and considerable queasiness, here is Ed Whelan’s offer of evidence about possible mistaken identity.

Update: Criticisms and partial walk-backs.


Yeah, if one is protesting the high-tech lynching of one guy, with no evidence to back an accusation up, I don't see how it helps to suggest an Alternate High-Tech Lynching victim in his place.

California Governor Jerry Brown Re: Trump: "Something's Gotta Happen to This Guy"

Had Trump said this, the liberal media -- and the alleged conservative media -- would be accusing Trump of making a not-so-coded call to assassination against an elected official.

But, given that the leftist media covers up for the left and the alleged conservative media only feels it's truly Alive when it's castigating conservatives for their alleged barbarism and ickiness -- our Establishment "Conservative" Betters do so love lecturing us and hall-monitoring us -- this is getting a very muted response all around.

Brown added: “It’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country; the Democrats will win…something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world."

NYT: Christine Blasey Ford Asked Her Best Friend if She Had Ever Mentioned a Sexaul Assault to Her, and Her Best Friend Answered "No"

—Ace of Spades

At least, no mention of it until this past summer.

And this was her best friend since college.

From the New York Times:

Over their years of friendship -- as roommates, bridesmaids and parents on opposite coasts -- Dr. Blasey wanted to know, had she ever confided that she had been sexually assaulted in high school?

No, Ms. Piwowarski said she texted back, she would have remembered that, and was everything O.K.? Dr. Blasey didn't want to speak in detail quite yet, her friend recalled her responding. "I don't know why she was asking that or what it ultimately meant or didn’t mean," Ms. Piwowarski said in an interview, but she remembers thinking that the question betrayed deep turmoil.

This woman seems to have a lot of problems with memory.

You're a senator who police will protect. A sexual assault victim can't sleep in her home tonight because of threats. Where are you sleeping?

Woman Who Claimed She'd Heard About Kavanaugh Attack Recants and Admits She Lied;
Says She Felt "Empowered"

—Ace of Spades

Yes, this is the problem. Rape accusations now put you at the top of the victim scoreboard and therefore give you more social currency than any achievement. Claiming to have information supporting someone else's rape accusation gives you almost as much.

I don't want to hear "Why would Ford lie about rape?" any longer. This idiot came forward out of the shadows to lie about rape. Ask her if you want to know why someone would lie about rape.

A former classmate of Christine Blasey Ford tells NPR that she does not know if an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took place as she first suggested on social media.

"That it happened or not, I have no idea," Cristina King Miranda told NPR's Nina Totenberg. "I can't say that it did or didn't."

That's different from what Miranda wrote Wednesday in a now-deleted Facebook post that stated definitively, "The incident DID happen, many of us heard about it in school."

This is the letter, posted on Facebook, from a woman who knew Kavanaugh, Judge and Blasey Ford and claims that the attack did happen, that "many of us heard about it in school," and that it was talked about for days afterward.
The FBI should interview her and others.

...

"In my [Facebook] post, I was empowered and I was sure it probably did [happen]," Miranda told NPR. "I had no idea that I would now have to go to the specifics and defend it before 50 cable channels and have my face spread all over MSNBC news and Twitter."

It seems like lying about rape can be "empowering" for some women.

So spare me further bullshit on this point.

Yes, men do rape. But women also do lie about rape. Both things happen. It is absurd that we are expected to take a woman's testimony on a rape claim as absolutely determinative and that we are not even allowed to question her.

It's even more absurd that we don't even have her testimony, but we're supposed to take a redacted letter she wrote to a partisan senator as determinative.

If Kavanaugh isn't confirmed I think we are lost. Governance-by-riot will be firmly in place, and I see no way out of it. The flashes of backbone that we are seeing in the Republican leadership is gratifying, but until it is confirmed by a timely vote it will just be more of their typical obfuscation in service of the corporatist wing of the party. What makes me sick is that these verysame Republicans take off the gloves when they are in tough primary races, but can't seem to retain that killer instinct when it matters.

And another thing...why aren't Republican operatives asking Feinstein to recuse herself from the confirmation process because they have credible evidence that the letter was actually a plant by the Chinese spy who was until lately in her employ? Yeah...it's called tit-for-tat. And the Republicans need to be doing more of it.

Good morning kids. Running late this Thursday so I will attempt to be brief, despite the fact that there are other things that are really going to get lost in the sauce that are absolutely crucial to be paying attention to.

With the Brett Kavanugh Low-Tech Lying Fest, we already know the score. Chuck Grassley has essentially told the Democrats and their Lying Stooge Ford to either shit or get off the pot. IMHO, as of this writing with everything that has happened and the facts as we know them, such as they are, the Dems have stepped on a rake. Instead of torpedoing Trump and energizing their base, they have done exactly the opposite as we head into the home stretch towards the Midterms. But before I touch upon some of the most incredibly insane reactions and proclamations, in the lead and every bit as enlightening as to who and what they are and what they stand for, we have the continuing saga of DNC co-chairman Keith Ellison, whose been accused by his ex-girlfriend of physical and mental abuse.

Karen Monahan, who has all but been ignored by the Media (and worse) has come forth with actual medical records detailing the injuries that she allegedly suffered under the pimp-hand of Ellison. To add real insult to real injury, what have the Democrats done? Shunned her, and perhaps even worse. Naturally she now bitterly points out the hypocrisy with what is happening vis a vis Brett Kavanaugh and her own situation. And I don't think I really need to talk about Juanita Broaddrick and the half dozen or more women left in the wake of Bill Clinton.

Despite this, Democrat National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has proclaimed he is proud to have Keith Ellison as his number 2 man (the double-meaning of that is perfect). This is more than just disgusting - it's perfectly illustrative of who and what the Democrat-Left are and what they will do to grab, maintain and consolidate their power. In short, they are the embodiment of projection and hypocrisy. And circling back to the Kavanaugh fiasco, here are today's prime examples; a trio of glittering jewels of stupidity and gall.

First, we have Senator Maizie "Macadamia Nut" Hirono who is blasting GOP senators for giving Ford the opportunity to testify. Somehow that's abuse. So if we propose waterboarding her you'd be totes cool with that, eh Maizie? Then there's the odious talking coprolite John Garamendi who proclaimed women across the nation should be outraged at what these white senators are doing to Ford. Say, what? Last I looked, Balsey Ford is white. I guess when you have no cards, playing the race card works because I guess he, like all Democrats, think that black people are just too stupid to realize it's not 1991 an this isn't Anita Hill. Loathsome jerk, that one. And finally we have the Eric "Swallows-Well" Swalwell who is threatening that if Kavanaugh is confirmed, that he'll push for judicial impeachment once the Dems sweep into power come November. Sir, you have no ethics, no morals, no class and most of all not two brain cells to rub together and so not the sense to fully understand the words which you have uttered. Do you not realize what you are suggesting?

Well, maybe then again he does, given the constant drumbeat that this President stole the election, is illegitimate and is to be opposed "by any means necessary." And this is a tidy way of moving into our next subject which is the James O'Keefe's latest Project Veritas sting in which he exposes State Department and other bureaucrats boasting about their efforts to sabotage directives from the Executive Branch. And surprise, surprise, surprise! Allison Hrabar, the Squeaky-Fromme-mousy-looking-pint-sized-unibrow-thugette who harassed Kirstjen Nielsen has been caught talking about how she uses the resources of the department, on department time, to find out the addresses of Trump supporters and administration members for the purpose of sending goon squads over to protest/harass them and their families.

Supposedly the DoJ is now looking into the revelations of this video but I don't know what if anything they'll do. I know what should be done. They should at minimum be fired and their pensions forfeited, union rules be damned. If it's a war they want, then a war is what they should have. Con gusto. And Hrabar et al are just the little foot soldiers in what amounts to insurrection. Hell, they call themselves "the resistance" so why not treat them as such? When Palsi Pelosi and Cuck Schemer, let alone Brennan are calling for those still in the DoJ, FBI and intel agencies to refuse to declassify documents that the President lawfully orders them to, then you have what we call in the trade as "a situation."

Again, if this is a war - and it most certainly is, especially after all we have seen and heard since November of 2016 - then it should be treated as such. The ball's in your court, Mr. President.

In politics, not to be outdone by the Dems stepping on a rake, the Senate GOP did not include border wall funding in its budget an the House is likely to do the same, McAssKill is now an official no vote on Kavanaugh but with the overwhelming evidence that this is a shit-show, GOP candidates are now running in support of the nominee and PDT, Texas seat that was Democrat for over 100 years is now Republican, Dem candidate loves her some Black Panthers, and House Dems will try yet again to detox from the Botox.

In the Amnesty front, Oakland has passed an "Abolish ICE" resolution, the illegal alien animal that killed Mollie Tibbetts pleaded not guilty to murder charges, and since 2010 immigration from Muslim third world paradises is way up. Oh joy.

Internationally, PDT will push for religious liberty at the UN, Mike Pompeo has told Kerry to STFD and STFU, and no love between Putin and Xi just yet. Meanwhile, the Joo-Haters are going nuts at the prospect of the Eurovision Song Contest being held in Israel and Ford Motors has a better idea - promote Louis Farrakhan's theory that Jews make black males go homo (must be the weather, or big matzo balls). So, "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" in Ford glove compartments will be making a comeback? Sheesh.

Another story getting lost in the sauce is the House passing a bill that redefines the term "Crime of Violence" is raising alarm bells and Snoozy McSnoozerson sounds the right notes about Chicago gun deaths and the ACLU, BLM and Antifa.

From hither and yon, Chevy Chase thinks SNL sucks, but not for the same reasons we do, the NFL is in need of more violence; presumably on the field and not the off the field murder, rape, gunplay, drug dealing and mayhem of the players, and lastly, Netflix "documentary" on Roe vs Wade is about as factual as you'd expect.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

UPDATE: Louie Gohmert link fixed

Video: Meet the World's First Domesticated, Semi-Doglike Foxes

—Ace of Spades

A Russian scientist wanted to prove, back in the 1980s, that the evolution from wolf to dog was genetic and caused by selective breeding by man. To prove this, he bred foxes for decades, selecting for only one trait: friendliness towards humans (or at least lack of fear of humans).

Foxes that were fearful of humans or unfriendly towards them were not permitted to breed. (To be honest, given that this was done by Russians and scientists, neither group having excess empathy for lab animals, I assume "not permitted to breed" really means "not permitted to live.")

But the foxes that seemed warmer towards humans were allowed to breed. And over decades and many generations, they slowly produced more dog-like foxes.

The video below shows a San Diego couple who pay up to $9000 for the domesticated foxes and the import fees for exotic animals, and have about eight of them. They say the foxes are not housebroken at all, and not nearly as sweet-natured as dogs; but the video points out, too, that these were lab animals, bred and tested and then allowed to breed if they were sufficiently friendly, but not cared for as a master would care for his dog.

So, genetically they might be friendly foxes, but they haven't been socialized to be as friendly as dogs. Most of their early lives were spent in kennels and cages.

Who knows, maybe the next generation of these San Diego foxes, properly brought up by humans from puppyhood, might be more like dogs.

It's kind of interesting.

The TL;DR version is: No, domesticated foxes are no threat whatsoever to become Man's New Best Friend. While they're tame and unafraid of people, they're also pretty aloof. And who knows, maybe they're not housebreakable.

Still, they're kinda cute.

Video below, print article here.

If you want to dive right into the Road Test -- wild foxes vs. domesticated foxes as far as friendliness towards humans -- skip to 4:54 and watch for about 30 seconds.

Something's Coming That Will Vindicate Kavanaugh?

—Ace of Spades

#SalonHot25 charter member AllahPundit digests some tweets which suggest that there may be some strong evidence emerging soon.


Whelan also suggested that while Kavanaugh was innocent of any crime, someone else might be guilty of one, and noted that it was a crime to lie to Congress.

I'm suspicious of all this -- not because I think Kavanaugh is guilty, but because, in my experience, life just doesn't work out this way.

Usually.

Kamala Harris: Accuser Should Not Be "Bullied" Into Testifying About It;
Mazie Hiromo: Men Should Shut Up

—Ace of Spades

The woman who orchestrated a national PR campaign to hype up the release of her Oscar-hopeful accusation should not be "bullied" into actually testifying about it.

And Senator Mazie Hirono demands that men "shut up" any time a woman lobs an accusation.

On Monday, Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) put on a show for reporters, ranting about the "men in this country" and telling them to "just shut up" with regard to the flimsy decades-old allegations of sexual assault launched at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at the eleventh hour.

"Guess who's perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It's the men in this country. I just want to say to the men in this country, just shut up! And step up. Do the right thing for a change," Hirono ranted, when asked about being one of four women on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

I have an idea. If liberal feminist women cannot understand that due process and the requirement of evidentiary standards do not turn off just because another leftist feminist woman has made an allegation, perhaps they should be excluded from public debate and public office. Perhaps they're just not mentally capable of participating in participatory democracy.

Meanwhile, another man Blasey Ford alleges was present at this four guys, one girl (or two girls? Depends on her fuzzy, mutating memory) pool party denies he was at any such party.

"I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as 'PJ' who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post," Smyth says in his statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh."

"Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women. To safeguard my own privacy and anonymity, I respectfully request that the Committee accept this statement in response to any inquiry the Committee may have."

Update: Kristin Gillibrand, who looks okay when she's not fat, joins in the coordinated messaging about not "bullying" this heroine into testifying.

Note that the last accuser Gillibrand promoted was Mattress Girl, another confabulator.

Update: The Democrats are whining about "bullying" her into testifying, but of course it was Democrats who leaked her letter to the press, thus guaranteeing she'd be asked to testify.

They want her accusations shouted but never questioned.

The Morning Rant

—OregonMuse

talking ape.jpg
"So it looks like Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has been identified and, guess what, she's a progressive activist college professor who apparently scrubbed her entire social media presence before her name was made public. She sends her letter to Senator Diane Feinstein who sits on it for weeks and then, after the confirmation hearings are over, gives it to the FBI for investigation, only with the professor's name redacted. Like, what are they supposed to do with it? So the FBI says this is not a matter for them to investigate (strange as it may seem, drunken high school groping is not a federal crime) and gives the letter to the White House. And now it's being reported that the professor will be a no-show at a proposed hearing next Monday and DiFi says she can't verify that she has said is truthful. This is all so stinky that even the extremely liberal San Francisco Chronicle newspaper editorialized against it. Grassley needs to shut down this shit show before it gets out of hand. Hell, it's *already* out of hand. There's no doubt in my mind that Kavanaugh is going to get confirmed. Even if Jeff Flake goes into a fetal position, they've still got 50 once Pence parachutes in. The problem is, the Democrats never seem to suffer any consequences when they toss in these stink bombs. Which they will do the next time and the next and the GOP needs to figure out how to make them pay for it. And last, some Eeyore conservatives are already complaining that these bogus allegations of sexual misconduct will permanently taint Kavanaugh's SCOTUS career. Really? I don't think so. Tomorrow will bring another day, the progs will gin up a new outrage, and everybody will forget this national freak-out, and Kavanaugh will go to work deciding cases according to sound constitutional law. And nobody will care. Just ask Clarence Thomas."

The Morning Report 9/19/18

—J.J. Sefton

corysezbrett.jpg

Good morning kids. Mid week and before we delve into the Kavanaugh sabotage disgrace, the other big story that is flying somewhat under the radar is the reaction to the the President's announcement that he is going to declassify documents relating to the FBI/DoJ manufactured witch hunt against his campaign and his nascent presidency (and still going strong in virtually all quarters of the bureaucracy per Project Veritas' latest revelations). The usual suspects - both figuratively and literally - are blasting the President's move as an abuse of power, threat to national security, obstruction of justice, blah blah blah, etc. That can only mean one thing; he's directly over the target and the documents will prove to all who have eyes to see and even the tiniest scintilla of a brain cell to reason that all the charges against him are a lie and that those who are screaming the aforementioned the loudest are themselves the guilty parties. Lee Smith at The Federalist lays out a fascinating unraveling of how in the waning days of the Obama Tyranny the strategy went from offense to defense, vis a vis preserving the Iran sellout and then sabotaging preventing President Trump's scrapping of it. Meanwhile, Robert Mueller is yet again trying to usurp executive branch authority by undercutting his boss' - that is, President Trump's - ability to issue a pardon to Paul Manafort. I'd say, who the hell does he think he is when, in point of fact, he has built his entire career and lived his life believing that of the American people 24/7/365. If there is a G-d in Heaven, I pray he sees fit to have Mueller thrown into the general population of a Federal prison, preferably the same one he tossed innocent people into to protect Whitey Bulger.

Now, on to the more or less main event. I am not going to go into any more details about this Accuser/Liar Ford's charges although in the RUFKM Dept., I find it interesting (read "disgusting") that the strident Leftist hack shyster who is representing her represented both Al Franken and Bill Clinton. And you'll be surprised, I'm sure, to learn of Accuser/Liar's interesting connections to Nazi collaborator George Soros and that the latter's minions are preemptively handing out bail money to rent-a-mob protestors in the event they get pinched.

It is now obvious that this woman is a paid liar in service of the Democrat-Left-Media complex. The parallel strategic goals are to sabotage Trump, fire up the base in order to protect the political hides of the old guard (Feinswine, Schemer, etc.) from the Maoists on the rise, pressure Trump into replacing Kavanaugh with a Bader-Meinhoff clone, and if successful hold onto their most powerful instrument of illegitimate policy implementation as well as in their mind fire up their base for the "Blue Wave."

From our perspective, the GOP leadership and key players including Jeff Flake of all people have apparently had it up to here (I'm pointing at my receding hairline [scalp, not crotch]) with this crap. Look, Feinswine herself is backtracking faster than a tobacco auctioneer on whether Accuser/Liar Ford is truthful or not, despite the Dems insistence on no vote until the FBI finds Kavanaugh guilty, the FBI - which has no jurisdiction on this whatsoever - has declined to investigate this, and Accuser/Liar Ford is not going to testify on Monday. Bearing all of this mind, then for the love of all that is good, Senators Grassley and McConnell should announce that the Monday additional hearing and flea circus is cancelled and that a vote in front of the full Senate will take place on Thursday.

If they do not do this, and if they allow Monday to happen (despite the optics being even worse for the Dems than they were the first time around) and if Kavanaugh is either stonewalled until after November or even until after 2020, the GOP is going to get wiped out in November. Worse than that, the Dems will now have a free pass to do this and get away with it from now on. Again, I call on Grassley and McConnell to end this garbage here and now. If you do that, I can almost guarantee a Red Wave come November. Assuming that that really is what they want, and the jury is out on that.

Last, but not least, in the REALLY R-U-F-K-M Dept., when I saw the link by Jeffrey Lord over at American Spectator my jaw just hit the floor. Cory "Blucher" Booker, the closet(ed) organizer is either utterly clueless or is a chutzpadik of such titanic radiance that it staggers the imagination, even for a Democrat (I know; embrace the power of "and"). On the verge of proclaiming himself "Spartacus" in his opposition to Brett Kavanaugh, and then as everyone in his party is seeking to destroy this good man over something that he allegedly did as a teenager, what does Booker go and do? Announce that he is sponsoring legislation to mandate leniency for teen offenders.

...If one assumes that Christine Ford's account is accurate, it happened for one reason -- the reason that no less than Cory Booker himself has -- truthfully -- asserted. Again, that is this:

Studies of youth brain development have found that the decision-making functions of the brain do not fully develop until much later than was previously believed to be the case. Despite this, some states still try 17-, and even 16,-year-olds as adults by default.

In other words? The activities of a 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh, not to mention 15-year-old Christine Blasey, were the result of immature teenagers whose "decision-making functions" were impaired to begin with because they had brains that were not "fully" developed. Not to mention that if Booker is literally sponsoring legislation that would make it the law of the land to seal youthful criminal records, there is no way that Ford's 36-years later allegation -- when no charges were even filed in the day -- should be relevant in the first place..."

Well done, Senator Booker. You're not only a despicable egomaniac but you have just confirmed yourself to be dumb as a stump. Possibly lower than a Joe Biden-level functioning imbecile. Would be nice if the GOP made some hay out of this.

Moving along to the political scene, looks like Doomberg and possibly Hickenpooper and even the Wookie with the killer triceps are eyeing a 2020 run (the latter two are not in the links), the RNC is worried that GOP voters may not turn out because they think the midterms are in the bag, Virginia students evidently never heard of Kasich's father and a big "OK" for Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco.

On the Amnesty scene, the Feds are being forced to release illegal kiddie border jumpers to illegal alien felons (why?), chain migration is a freaking disaster of a time bomb and that ultimately leads to fundamentally transforming our nation. Which is a big Leftist wet dream.

Internationally, Whoa, Fat! is once again singing PDT's praises, crisis possibly averted in Syria, the Chi-Coms retaliate with $60 billion in tariffs, IBD analysis of China vs US in a trade/tariff war, Putin doesn't blame the Jooz for controlling the weather and Syrian SAMs (but mostly Syrian SAMs), a shocking yet unsurprising video from a UK sharia law no-go zone (y'know, the ones that don't exist), and PDT putting the screws to Iran is already paying big dividends.

In First Amendment, AgitProp and Censorship, interesting take on Google becoming the Chi-Com Stasi, Daniel Greenfield shreds the Trump killed 3,000 in Puerto Rico bromide, NPR attempts to sabotage promo efforts for the "Gosnell" movie (why have we NOT defunded NPR yet?), Vanderbilt Poofter is all wet, Brett Kavanaugh's wife is a class act, and more on the Wa-Po's border passport fiction.

Domestically, as the GOP dithers on Brett Kavanaugh, they manage to pass a titanic spending bill so fast that if you blinked, you missed it, Planned Parenthood's new prexy spews lies on The Yenta Patrol, aka The View, and Hurricane Florence defies the Global Warming fraudsters' "science."

From hither and yon, Rozelle, Cosell and Dandy Don are rolling in their graves as Monday Night Football craters to a new low for week 2, an essay on Feminazi male-blaming for doing the Fluke, and the insane corporate culture at Google.

On a point of personal privilege, today marks the 2nd Anniversary of The Morning Report. Thank you to Ace for affording me the privilege to be here, the Cobs for all their support and to all of you who come here, comment and make it all worthwhile.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

Breaking: Kavanaugh's Accuser Says She Won't Testify Until The FBI, Which Has Already Declined to Investigate Her Non-Federal-Jurisdiction 37 Year Old Allegations, Completes Its Investigation, Sometime After a Democrat is President

—Ace of Spades

Coming over Tucker Carlson: After saying she would testify, she now says she won't, not until the FBI investigation (which is not happening) is completed.



Strangely enough, this tracks perfectly with the Democrats' talking points that the FBI must conduct a long, slow investigation which, conveniently enough, delays the vote until after the midterms.

And what would Republicans do then?

Well, believe it or not, even Jeff Flake says if she doesn't testify, then they just move forward with the confirmation:



And Jim Acosta decided to deceptively edit a Kavanaugh clip to create even more CNN #FakeNews.
