How hilarious is it in this pornography-saturated culture of anything-goes-and-nothing-matters that a long-ago session of awkward teenage necking becomes the most horrifying crime since Eve consorted with a snake in the original wayback?

One theory: having worked tirelessly to destroy behavioral boundaries in its quest to transform human nature for the greater good of society, the Prog-Left has no idea anymore how the world works or how to interpret what human beings actually do in it. Hence this effort to turn the Brett Kavanaugh nomination proceeding into a retroactive abortion of the nominee.

The Democratic Party seems to be afflicted with a vicious sort of PMS that has turned the brains of even its theoretically male members, Senators Chuck Schumer and Richard Blumenthal, into polenta with red sauce on top. They see blood everywhere, and even appear to be thirsting for it like a gang of Old World Nosferatus, or giddy Jacobins merrily geeing up the guillotine blade in a frenzy of summary execution.

My own sense of the situation is that Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations are going exactly nowhere, no matter how carefully and elaborately conditions are set for her to lay out her case. It couldn’t be more firmly established that she doesn’t remember what year or what place the alleged necking happened in. Is she going to change that part of the story now? Surely lawyers, gumshoes, and phrenologists on the Democratic Party payroll would like to engineer some magic memory retrieval so she’ll be supplied with dates and addresses when her turn at the microphone comes. By the way, the boundary between truth and untruth is one of the lines that has turned all squishy on them. Because they can’t tell anymore, they must assume nobody else can either.

Who knows if Ms. Ford is sturdy enough for this ordeal-by-testimony. CNN asserted last night that this episode has “destroyed her life.” Of course, that claim, too, might be viewed as just another manifestation of hormonal disturbance which, let’s face it, women of a certain age are subject to. She can always retreat to her “safe space” back at Palo Alto U, with all the perqs and emoluments of her professorship, or perhaps even make a run for congress. God knows, California could use another victim of white male sexual abuse to advance the project of getting rid of men altogether. Hollywood would sign on for that in a New York minute.

This might come as a shock to readers, but the time is not far off when the remaining not-insane cohort of adult Americans gets good and goddamn sick of political sex bombing. Especially given this case of shuck-and-jive. Consider that the same CNN this week produced an entire segment about the shape and size of the President’s generative organ (as reported by an expert in these matters, the porn star and prostitute known as Stormy Daniels). It must be a subject of extraordinary interest to CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

On the other flank of the news this week is the much more perilous showdown between the Department of Justice (and the FBI), and Mr. Trump, the cis-hetero-white Golem who happens to be president. He has ordered these agencies to produce a set of un-redacted documents pertaining to the long-running Russia investigation, set into motion by personnel at these very places. It’s his prerogative under the constitution to do that. In turn, these agencies are being egged on by possibly culpable characters in this melodrama, such as former CIA Director John Brennan and Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Cal), to stonewall the Golem. If I were president — and I may get there yet — I’d send federal marshals into Rod Rosenstein’s office to seize these documents before they are mysteriously “lost.” A tremendous tension hangs over this transaction. Imagine the awful possibility that Mr. Trump may have to declare some kind of martial law to roust out these seditious rascals and clean up their departments. There’s your Fourth Turning horror show with whipped cream and a cherry on top.

    It amazes me that an act more than a third of a century ago is being used as a reason the stop the nomination process of a justice for the Supreme Court.

    • hmuller September 21, 2018 at 10:12 am #

      A very credible theory is that “the victim” is mis-remembering the event. A fellow high school football player named Chris Garrett who looked very much like Kavanaugh may have done the deed. The location of the house, its floor plan, and other details point to Garrett, not Kavanaugh as the horny teenager in question. See
      zerohedge.com/news/2018-09-20/was-kavanaugh-accuser-almost-raped-his-doppelganger-new-theory-emerges

      • teddyboy46 September 21, 2018 at 10:54 am #

        I had the same idea. The event really happened but she remembers the wrong guy. It has been suggested that there was a lot of drinking at this party and it has also been suggested that she was sober sitting there in a bikini in front of a bunch drunk horny teenage boys. This does not seem to make alot of sense in the real world.

        • Exscotticus September 21, 2018 at 12:04 pm #

          Agreed. And this may explain the memory gaps…

          In the pages [of her yearbook], you will see multiple photos and references to binge drinking and the accompanying joy of not being able to remember any of it.

          Scribe 84 is the yearbook for her senior year. Her name was Christine Blasey in high school, often referred to as “Chrissy”. In the image below, Blasey is pictured at a Halloween party in her junior year. The caption on the right says: “Lastly one cannot fail to mention the climax of the junior social scene, the party. Striving to extend our educational experience beyond the confines of the classroom, we played such intellectually stimulating games as Quarters, Mexican Dice and everyone’s favorite, Pass-Out, which usually resulted from the aforementioned two.”

          Apparently Miss Bathing-Suit-Beneath-Her-Clothes came from a culture of partying and drunken debauchery, which is now being systematically scrubbed and sanitized. Ford would be insane to face a public inquiry with this in evidence. Imagine the questioning…

          “Tell us more, Dr. Ford, about the game called ‘Pass-Out’. Did you play it often? What about that evening?”

          And speaking of memory issues, consider the conflicting testimony of her HS friend, who first claimed…

          “The incident DID happen, many of us heard about it in school.”

          …but then claimed…

          “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.”

      • pyrrhus September 21, 2018 at 1:11 pm #

        Yet another major motive that has surfaced for Ford’s dubious claims is that she worked intensely on getting RU-486 approved, and likely owns stock in the company she worked with…thegatewaypundit.com/2018/09/christine-blasey-ford-published-eight-studies-about-abortion-pill-and-w…

        That’s assuming she’s just not making up the whole thing. Women do things like that a lot. No doubt it’s real in her own mind though.

    • Wxtwxtr September 21, 2018 at 12:30 pm #

      In all the sound and fury of the media’s extraordinary delusions and madness of crowds, have we lost sight of the idea that IT’S NOT ABOUT Kavanaugh & Chrissy?

      I’m actually surprised those kinder and gentler Dems aren’t proffering pics of Kavanaugh porking Pepe in Kekistan. Perhaps the Dem circle jerk audience are so geriatric they wouldn’t get it?

      Maybe this time there is something going on behind the scenes that is so dangerous (nooses) to their “deep” state merger that they need to do ANYTHING to stop any Supreme appointment before Nov? All they have to do is stop the nomination. Then their Pop-up-Bimbo can go home with a few hundred g’s after her 15 minutes and be forgotten. Then the Continuing Circus restarts after the sElection, when the Dems and their Full Spectrum Dominance Election Fraud and Fredocon apathy will have saved the day. Or not.

      Regarding JHK’s ‘martial law’; perhaps some faction of the (allegedly deep) state merger is working overtime to get us Normies begging for it to punish the unrestrained over the top lawlessness that has overgrown all historic limits in the District of Criminals. That won’t work, because we Normies are voiceless and powerless. Maybe instead “The 300” unified media voice should reverse course and embrace Sessions pending prosecutions. Oh, wait … 🙂

    • Majella September 23, 2018 at 6:32 pm #

      Two things:

      1) if true, no matter how much time has elapsed doesn’t make it right. It also means he’s lying – right now, current time.

      2) why hasn’t ‘the resistance’ concentrated instead on his provable lying to Congress in his earlier confirmation hearings?

      It’s clear to me he’s the typical result of a private ‘asshole factory’ (hat-tip Bill Maher) and lacks any real empathy, as exemplified by his refusal to shake the hand of Jaime Guttenberg.

      Personally, I believe this woman and can understand why she’s been silent till now.

  2. John of the West September 21, 2018 at 9:39 am #

    The whole Kavanaugh episode is proving the hollow nature of our political system. These battles being fought have little to do with correcting the underlying structural problems of our political system, economy, and culture that are becoming increasingly broken. As new crises occur, our system becomes less and less able to respond effectively to them, and our decline will only increase in speed.

    • elysianfield September 21, 2018 at 11:29 pm #

      John,
      It helps to frame the issue if you realize that what is occurring has nothing to do with Kavanaugh, nor Mz. Ford. The issue is nothing less than an exercise in the naked use of power. Change the names, change the issue at hand, the two parties would conduct themselves no differently.

      It clears the mind not having to concern oneself with the veracity of the testimony, the outrage of the act, the endless pontificating of those within and without the government.

      What becomes clear, is that if THIS is all they got…a he said/she said from 35 years ago, the results are certain.

      Republicans rejoice…Democrats? Suck on it….

  3. JMR September 21, 2018 at 10:02 am #

    The whole Kavanaugh debacle has solidified my resolve. I don’t like republicans or democrats and I used to be a democrat. But the democrats are such low lifes and so disgusting that I have decided to vote republican across the board come November from Senator and Governor down to the court of appeals in my county in the hopes that every single one of them are voted out of office. I hope enough people will join me and people like me to send a message loud and clear that we the people do not think this is okay and we are sick of the BS and shenanigans. Enough is enough.

    • Exscotticus September 21, 2018 at 12:08 pm #

      Well it’s certainly interesting that in the Left’s collective judgment, Benghazi and multiple email debacles were not enough to disqualify Hillary from POTUS, yet this incident of teenage “hitting the walls” drunkenness—if true— should disqualify Kavanaugh from SCOTUS.

      In Benghazi people DIED. Hillary not only kept top secret and classified emails on her secret server, but then lied about it and tried to cover it up! Moreover, Hillary’s “gross negligence” over the years show a pattern of behavior.

      And Kavanaugh? No such pattern of behavior. Quite the opposite. He seems to have left a long trail of very satisfied women in his wake…

      • JMR September 22, 2018 at 11:44 pm #

        Amen brother (or sister). There are so many people who need to be in prison or executed right now that aren’t that I don’t understand what is holding Trump back from prosecuting them. And let’s not forget that Benghazi was the minor crime of the whole Libya debacle. Now there’s a failed state where once there was a prosperous country because of this maniac.

    • HowardBeale September 21, 2018 at 6:00 pm #

      @JMR

      Ditto!
      Was a Dem, then an abstainer; now, a virulent anti-Dem who is voting Republican across the board–no matter what.

      • JMR September 22, 2018 at 11:41 pm #

        Don’t get me wrong, I hate most of the republicans, but I’m doing this just because I think the democrats are so much worse. I wish there was a more effective way of making the people realize what trash they are, but I don’t have that kind of power.

  4. aibohphobia September 21, 2018 at 10:06 am #

    If the crime of NWAT (Necking While A Teenager) is the worst thing the Dem’s can dig up on Kavanaugh, he just might be the most virtuous Supreme Court Nominee ever!

    • benr September 21, 2018 at 10:18 am #

      My hope is the Democrat party implodes and something more sane pops up in its place and once that happens the slightly less toxic and corrupt Republican party implodes and something better replaces that as well.
      It is amazing how the forefathers understood that having political parties would cause people to be beholden and faithful to the parties and not to we the people.
      Sick of the witch hunts and party rhetoric as well as the party of no de jour.

      • darrell dullnig September 21, 2018 at 5:52 pm #

        Wishing for the system we have to produce something better is an exercise in frustration. The law of entropy is engaged, and we are collectively doomed. Wait till you see who replaces Mr. Trump. I would like to second your wishes, but this nation passed the point of no return decades ago. Prepare for impact….

        • SpeedyBB September 22, 2018 at 3:32 am #

          As regards “Wait till you see who replaces Mr. Trump” I surmise that the hapless (and reportedly not-very-bright) Pence will be so terrified that he will do little or nothing, either millenarianist or otherwise, for fear of running foul of the newly-confident puppeteers.

          He will become a true figurehead and placeholder, even more so than Slick Willy or Dubya, rather like some of those ineffective latter-day Roman Emperors set in place and then knocked off by the Praetorian Guard.

      He is too clean so he isn’t qualified. He doesn’t have a skeleton or two under his bed. It would make all the difference.

      All that is going on is an ‘are you worthy show’. A woman screaming rape without proof is not going to stop anything. Lets hope it never happens. We don’t want to be reading and writing about Jim’s penis here! If that happens Anderson Cooper can take my place as this columns dog. But, chewing a bone on the oval office rug for a day has a certain appeal. I hope that rug has been cleaned. I would not want any special flavorings.

      If ‘hair on a coke can’ Anita Hill was not able to do it and Ford does Janos will never stop ranting about the racism. We should hope Kavenaugh gets confirmed lickity split for that very reason! We don’t want this place to become the Janos show where crude racism causes discerning readers to flee every week now do we?

      • K-Dog September 21, 2018 at 10:51 am #

        I take that back. Confirming Kavenaugh will totally go against the oppressed white man shtick Janos puts out. I had it backwards. No matter which way it goes Janos gets pissed so it does not matter if Kavenough gets confirmed or not. If Kavenaugh is confirmed it shows the white man still has mojo. Janos won’t like that. If Kavenaugh is not confirmed it shows the white man is still oppressed. Janos won’t like that. No matter which way it goes the Janos character gets pissed.

        • Elrond Hubbard September 21, 2018 at 11:08 am #

    A fellow found the yearbook’s for Holton Arms during the time Ford went there:

    cultofthe1st.blogspot.com/2018/09/why-christine-blasey-fords-high-school_19.html

    Holton was an *expensive* school where rich Daddy’s working in the DC guv sent their airhead little princesses. To say these girls were ‘easy’ would be an understatement. High school guys back then just called them sluts. And gladly partied with them.

    And you wonder who raised the Snowflakes, who produced this pathetic generation? These psychos, and the stupids guys who married them.

          Some folks cannot comprehend or will not admit that it’s women who shepherd the past into the future. Properly understood, they bear our civilization’s mores, teaching, values in their bellies & on their laps. Women who stray from that ideal deserve all the scorn & derision heaped upon them such as ‘slut’, ‘whore’, ‘slattern’, ‘bitch’, etc.

          Men are under no such general constraint as women. Life is inherently unfair. We can make it fairer, but we cannot disregard what biology predetermines.

            If men & women were the same, that is to say, if the differences between men & women were not what they are, but only superficial attributes (as radical feminism would have us believe), then it would be hypocrisy. That not being the case, it is not hypocrisy.

            I don’t even know why I bother to reply to you. Your views are disgusting.

            “Women who stray from that ideal deserve all the scorn & derision heaped upon them such as ‘slut’, ‘whore’, ‘slattern’, ‘bitch’, etc.”

            Seriously. Disgusting. Based on hate, bitterness and entitlement. And you say those words because you get sick pleasure from saying them.

            My father was the main breadwinner in our house, although my mother had loved the job she used to have and eventually had to get a part-time job doing something else.

            He was a gentleman, unlike you. He respected women. If anyone had suggested to him that my mother was in any consideration not his equal (which does NOT mean the same) he’d have put them right in short order.

            And if you’d used any of those foul-mouth insults to ANY women inside his house he’d have put you out and shut the door in your face.

            Tate, I remember many years ago hearing that civilization is carried through the women, not so much through the men. The men are largely dispensable, but not the women. I believe the theory behind this conjecture is that women are keepers of the familial hearth.Hence it is the duty of the men to not permit their women to be turned into sluts and whore.But look around, Tate. What have we done here in America? The exact opposite, far as I can tell. When did this metamorphosis really get on a roll? Well, I suggest the evils really hatched out big-time with that pig who started Playboy, Hefner; a hand-maiden of a Moloch and a worshiper of Mammon. He popularized the concept of turning pretty decent, women into sex objects and sluts. No fun turning a slut into a slut. It’s far more “fun” to turn a simple maiden into a pleasure animal, no? Normal men considered themselves having “arrived” if they had a subscription to Playboy delivered to the family home, not in a plain brown wrapper. That was to show how avant garde they had become. Of course, there always have been the Delilahs in the world. The clever, arrogant, goal-seeking women. But they were relatively rare. Now we have average women, the so-called girl next store, who aspires to be a slut! I’ve even heard women say “I’m such a slut” in public settings, as though it were a badge of honor. Sic transit gloria mundi.

          • Tate September 23, 2018 at 5:11 pm #

            AKlein, you may be right about Hefner. I brought up something like that in a comment here several months ago. And you are so correct about the “slut next door”. They actually boast about their sluttiness!

            So how is it “disgusting” to pin that label “slut” on a girl when she willingly pins it on herself?

            This frequent commenter here who attacks me for plainly speaking the truth will of course deny that men & women have fundamental differences, that because of their biological differences, their life-strategies will always be inalterably distinct from one another. This is why there is no equivalent term in males for “slut.” To say otherwise is delusional. Or deceptive, if one chooses to be less charitable.

            Down through history (& almost certainly before), men have practiced hypergamy (if they’ve been able) & even been celebrated in song & story for it. If that is hypocrisy, then make your appeal to God, who ordained it thusly. Women have tried (usually surreptitiously but sometimes under the veil of law) down through the ages to practice something else: serial monogamy. Them who weren’t outright whores, that is. Only recently have they also practiced hypergamy, through Tinder & other means.

            The result will be to further erode if not destroy our society. What is threatened within Western civilization is the institution of normal monogamous marriage, which goes all the way back to the time of the ancient Romans & probably long before. Even the Roman emperors confined themselves to just one wife at a time. When the majority of women think that 80% of men are below average in looks & won’t consider them as marriage material, something has gone seriously hay-wire. If our culture abandons normal hetero-monogamy, the results will be unpredictable but certainly it won’t be a good outcome when just a few men have access to most of the desirable women. It will lead to (No, it is leading to) societal upheaval & chaos as the remaining men will still be men but men without access to women… those that haven’t converted to bugmen, trannies & strong-arm rapists, that is.

            Furthermore, for this person to drag her own mother into it using a straw-man argument in order to score debate points is what I find truly disgusting.

          • GreenAlba September 23, 2018 at 6:47 pm #

            “Down through history (& almost certainly before), men have practiced hypergamy”

            Hypergamy: the action of marrying a person of a superior caste or class.

            What on earth are you wittering about now?

            “If that is hypocrisy, then make your appeal to God, who ordained it thusly.”

            So, did Jesus say you you had to marry someone of a superior caste or just that you could shag lots of women? Did he say where you should find these er… ‘sluts’? I’m assuming they must be ‘sluts’ since they’d have to be those women who ‘stray from the ideal’. Unless you’re planning to marry them all. Is that why you’re so bitter, because you want 10 wives and the politically correct civil authorities won’t let you?

            And I didn’t ‘drag’ my mother into anything. I explained to you what a real man and a gentleman is, since you seem to be short of examples round your way. Maybe you’ve never met one.

          • Tate September 23, 2018 at 7:37 pm #

            By ‘hypergamy’ I was referring to the practice of dating or having sexual relations with many members of the opposite sex. Is the correct term ‘polygamous?’ In any event, if I got the technical term wrong, brand me with your Brit-speak so-called “wittering” iron. I’m not a sociologist.

            There are a lot of things Jesus didn’t comment on. But if I recall, Paul had a lot to say on the proper relations of men & women in his epistles to Timothy.

            And yes, harridan, you brought your own mother into it, in order to score debate points. For shame to involve your own mother in a discussion of sluts!

            You cannot deny the truth at the heart of my thesis.

          • Tate September 23, 2018 at 7:47 pm #

            And seriously, I want ten wives? You are mentally deranged.

            “You cannot deny the truth at the heart of my thesis.”

            I’m afraid I can.

            Don’t get me wrong, Tate – I don’t care how many women you or anyone else has sex with. It’s no-one else’s business. I just think you don’t have a leg to stand on if you try to defend it on Christian grounds. Paul’s admonition was to get on and marry to avoid sin (sin being ‘fornicating’ – having sex with women you’re not married to), so er… tough.

            ‘Marry or burn’ – you can take that as ‘marry or burn with desire’ or ‘marry or burn in hell’ – not my problem. And you sure can’t have sex with anyone else after you’re married, so I’d detach your argument from your ‘Christianity’ if I were you because it just won’t wash.

            And you still haven’t explained, if you’re having sex with all these multiple women, where they’re going to come from, if they’re all sticking to your ‘ideal’. And how you’re going to say sorry to all those men who won’t get a mate because you’ve ‘spoiled’ them. See how ridiculous this gets?

            And stop talking drivel about the example of my parents. Again, I’m merely demonstrating how a gentleman behaves but I can see that, on that one, I’m wasting my time, because you’re too far gone. But my mother would have been happy to tell you to wash your mouth out.

          I don’t recall claiming that Janos dislikes women, although he has since admitted to disliking most of them. My impression is that Janos dislikes women who have the temerity to not conform to exactly what Janos would like. Shock. Horror. I’m guessing, since the pool in which he would like to fish is smaller than he would like, he possibly sublimates some of his frustrations by converting them to wider ideological obsessions.

          I do so wish I had nothing more tedious to worry my pretty little head with than the details of Janos’ sexuality. I have to confess to some surprise that the subject seems to intrigue you. But lucky you for having a life with no real problems 🙂 .

        You missed the point. These little rich girls weren’t angelic princesses staying home on weekends to knit with grandma and care for the garden. These were party girls, desperate to bed the alpha guys who would give them status. (the yearbook link above gives a slightly mild view of their lives.)

        Between high school and college, Ford probably banged so many guys, she can’t remember half of them.

        And of course, the ‘alpha’ guys turned out to be dipshit MBAs and government lawyers and wall street crooks. Meaning, the guys running your lives and telling you how to think through the media and the government. They are your betters, your masters. So kiss up to Ford, she’s a couple rungs higher than you.

        • lateStarter September 21, 2018 at 12:40 pm #

          I grew up in the area and went to UVA in 75. The girls from the private all-girls schools and colleges were, how can I say it: the most accomodating. Not that I am claiming to be an alpha guy – far from it. But, if you were in the right place at the right time and had the looks, it was fairly easy to score. They were just so willing. I can’t even remember how many rich girls from private high schools in Goergetown/DC that I hooked up with in clubs before hooking-up was a thing. Sorry if this sound like bragging. It is not. I was just a clueless dude, out and about.

        In other words, men and women are the same and thus judged by the same standard. That may be “fair” but it’s not life.

        A good key will open many locks. But a good lock will only open to one key.

        One is reminded of Gloria Steinem and her belief that men and women are the same. The only difference is that women can get pregnant. When told women firefighters weren’t strong enough to carry people, she glibly remarked, Well they can drag them. It’s cooler down there anyway.

        Foul is far better than fair in this case.

        • GreenAlba September 21, 2018 at 1:22 pm #

          Janos

          Give it a rest with the ‘in other words’ TM. The very last place I want your words is in my mouth.

          ‘A good key will open many locks. But a good lock will only open to one key.’

          The point you miss is that in your view of the world (and in the way it has often worked in practice) the ‘good key’ (pause to reach for sick bucket) requires a cohort of those ‘many locks’ for its gratification. It therefore does not have the right to look down its nose at anyone in that cohort of many locks which are gratifying it. Not by one iota.

          That’s why the gender-biased term, ‘slut’ is offensive. I might find myself using the word myself, but if I used it, it wouldn’t have the weight of self-serving male hypocrisy attached to it. (Male persons who’ve only ever shagged the same number of persons as their wife has are obviously not hereby defamed).

          So open as many locks as you want – I don’t care. Just don’t presume to consider yourself entitled to slag them off, since you have made yourself entirely equal to them. You are bereft of logic. Who, in your ridiculous world, are the ‘good keys’ all going to end up with, if all the other ‘good keys have ‘unlocked’ them first? The stupidity of your world is breathtaking.

          • Janos Skorenzy September 21, 2018 at 2:01 pm #

            Yes, well said. Christian morality is opposed to nature. But since you have renounced the former, you are left only with the latter – so you are standing in mid air. But only for a milli-second! Your views are so much air. Enjoy the accelerating social ride down cuz the ground is going to really hurt.

            In the order of Nature, most men don’t reproduce. And 80% of women seek to be with 20% of men. Thus Nature endorses polygamy – and women are all in for it. Christianity enforced monogamy – and society and its members benefited despite themselves in many cases. As the Old Alchemists said, Nature unaided, fails.

            Your Kantian moral argument is logical, but Nature isn’t. One needs stronger medicine than Kant to take on Ma Nature.

          • GreenAlba September 21, 2018 at 2:24 pm #

            Janos

            Again, your logic still fails when it is applied to logic itself. I have not argued against nature, but merely against hypocrisy.

            And don’t presume to know about other people’s morality. Observing the hypocrisy of many Christians can make one more Catholic than the Pope. Figuratively.

          • Janos Skorenzy September 22, 2018 at 12:46 pm #

            Hypocrisy is built into the feminine nature. Moreover it is the price vice pays to virtue, so one could say it is built into the structure of official morality as well.

            I admitted you were logical with your Kantian type analysis. I simply repeat your logic will not work where logic does not avail. To think it will is contrary to all experience and experiment – and thus illogical in that sense.

          • GreenAlba September 22, 2018 at 3:03 pm #

    The Jacobins, just like the Marxists of the 20th century and the neo-Marxists of today’s Democratic party tried to “memory hole” basic cultural norms, even going so far as to replace the Julian calendar with a “politically correct” version . Today’s leftists understand that they will never remake America legislatively, they must rely on the tyranny of an activist kritarchy. Which explains their tactics from Bork to Thomas and now Kavanaugh. Perhaps not so ironically, the same activists that tried to lynch the Thomas nomination, are now feverishly working to immasculate the Kavanaugh nomination.

No one should be allowed a second 4 year term in office, including Presidents. Nor should any PACs be allowed to exist. These are all vehicles for endless corruption.

    The saboteurs’ attempt to derail Kavanaugh nomination is a ripple on the water, and the current is that all Trump actions occur in exactly the right order, and no storm can distract him from the main thing: not to let Hillary Clinton take control of the American red button.

    And this main thing is carried out in full accordance with the plan, which the Democrats for lack of brains published themselves, overhearing the conversation of the head of the congressional committee for intelligence Devin Nunes with the sponsors of the Republican Party:

    1. Judge Kavanaugh is first appointed to be a Justice of the Supreme Court, and this makes it pointless to subpoena Trump for interrogation, which is an attempt to lure him into a perjury trap and which he will immediately bring to the US Supreme Court, where, with God’s help, Kavanaugh will be sitting.

    2. Then Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, supervising the investigation of Mueller, is impeached by the Republican Congress for refusing to provide Congress with documents related to the unlawful initiation of the investigation that became the Mueller Commission.

    3. Trump fires Attorney General Sessions who refuses to wrest control of the DOJ from the Clintonoids and appoints a person who will turn the Mueller commission into an investigation into the cooperation of Hillary Clinton with Russian anti-Putin oligarchs in fabricating false evidence of the need to investigate the links between the Russian government and the election campaign of Donald Trump.

      “However, what healthy 17-year old back in the day did not try to roger every female he could get his hands on. The whole thing is an embarrassment.”

      I have no comment to add on (a) whether the event in question actually happened or (b) the opportunistic way it is currently being used. However, although I have paid little deliberate attention to the details, it seemed to me that the issue was more that he allegedly held his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming. Paulo seems to have been deleted for pointing this out, possibly in addition to commenting on the PMS comment.

      I am a loyal JHK reader, but this:

      “Of course, that claim, too, might be viewed as just another manifestation of hormonal disturbance which, less (sic) face it, women of a certain age are subject to. ”

      …is disappointing, especially to one who tries to approach most of the gender-bashing comments on here in a spirit of pointing out that most people of both sexes live their lives – together – without the tiresome gender warfare that pertains both in the limelight and on rabid internet websites.

      I especially regret that it suggests an entirely different tone from the one used in reference to the hormonal disturbances to which, let’s face it, 17-year-old boys are subject.

      I’ve only once faced potential male aggression. I mentioned it once before. A man who was following me got in front of me and stopped me in my tracks and I ran. He ran after me, It was terrifying and it was 40 years ago. I haven’t forgotten a single second of it. I told nobody but my boyfriend/future husband. I wouldn’t have known him from Adam anyway and there was nothing to accuse him of except putting the fear of death in me.

        Hello! No society has existed that didn’t intuit the tension between the different innate agenda of the respective two (emphatically just two) sexes, along with — of course — each’s particular purposefulness toward survival needs. That intuitive understanding was the basis for each society formulating an order of marriage rituals for binding the two sexes into a cooperative compromise that could flex toward pre-imminence of one agenda over the other as appropriate to circumstance. This discourse is one of much greater depth about “sexual natures” but I’ll leave it to all to do their own research — hopefully undertaken indifferently instead of serving partisanship.

        >>> the issue was more that he allegedly held his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming.

        And he did so while he was allegedly, in Ford’s own words, “hitting the walls” drunk.

        Does being intoxicated exonerate one of all responsibility for one’s actions? Absolutely not! Is it exculpatory? Absolutely!

        Morally and legally, we do not treat “under the influence” actions the same as those of a clear mind. Imagine the difference if there had been no alcohol involved. That’s a very different scenario!—a far more serious scenario. But that’s not what Ford is alleging.

          Great. So let me know if a drunk driver kills a member of your family, having imbibed alcohol which no one anywhere forced them to imbibe, and we can talk about how it wasn’t really their fault.

            >>> and we can talk about how it wasn’t really their fault.

            I neither said nor implied that. But if you check your UK laws, you will find a difference between attempted murder and vehicular manslaughter. It’s called mens rea and it matters.

            Speaking of intent, you seem to not appreciate that there’s a one-sided interpretation here that involves an assessment of Kavanaugh’s intent and state of mind. “…held his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming” is subjective. Someone else could just as easily claim that he was attempting to suffocate and kill her. Or that he was just trying to stop her from moaning loudly with ecstasy (I’ve seen the latter portrayed on broadcast TV). Point is, putting one’s hand over another person’s mouth is not in itself an incriminating act.

            I’m aware of mens rea, Exscotticus. I was thinking more of your own use of ‘morally’ as well as ‘legally’. I know that you can kill someone while you’re drunk at the wheel and get a shockingly low number of years in jail, even though you knew what you were doing when you drank with the intention of driving.

            Genuine question: if an actual rape is perpetrated and proven beyond reasonable doubt, unlike the case in question, does the guy get less time if he got drunk first? Obviously (in the UK at least) you can’t legally get consent from a drunk person, but in terms of the drunkenness of the perpetrator, I wonder if it’s useful legal protection to get tanked up before you try your luck.

            I’m not a lawyer (solicitor in your parlance). And I have a hard enough time just keeping up with all the gun laws. But I would guess that a one-off case of alcohol-induced mixed signals with no priors would not be treated the same as, say, someone who spent months planning a rape, with pictures and diagrams and sicko psycho journal entries and so on. I would say that, as with most things, context matters.

            >>> I wonder if it’s useful legal protection to get tanked up before you try your luck.

            Perhaps, but you do realize that your ability to “try your luck” is inversely proportional to the amount of alcohol you consume. I’ll leave it to this well-known women’s rag to explain the particulars.

            I don’t need to click on your ‘rag’ to know the effect of alcohol on performance. There’s a delicate line to be drawn between Dutch courage and a wilting lily, sorry, willy. Drunk people DO have sex.

            https://www.amazon.co.uk/BEER-HELPING-PEOPLE-SINCE-12×16/dp/B000O7MB92

            But I liked your neat move to comparing a ‘one-off case of alcohol-induced mixed signals’ to a pre-planned rape by a ‘sick psycho’ when all I mentioned was a young boy going to a party to ‘try his luck’. Straw man award.

            Mixed signals – ‘please hold your hand over my mouth to prevent me screaming, unless I speak our safe word through my ears’.

            NB all hypothetical as, I repeat, I have not paid enough attention to the actual case in question other than having picked up about the hand over the mouth aspect.

          • GreenAlba September 23, 2018 at 9:10 am #

            PS ‘lawyers’ is a generic term here, and covers solicitors, notaries and barristers.

            They all do degrees in ‘law’. There is, thankfully, not yet a degree in ‘soliciting’ 🙂 .

          • Exscotticus September 23, 2018 at 12:25 pm #

            @GreenAlba, my response was merely an answer to your question…

            >>> I wonder if it’s useful legal protection to get tanked up before you try your luck.

            I was not trying to characterize the Ford allegation as either one of “mixed signals” or the schemings of a psycho. The fact that I mention both extremes should have tipped you off to that. I merely mentioned that I believe context matters. The ENTIRE context. Not just the parts you seem to want to focus on, while conveniently ignoring the rest.

            If Ford ever does manage to testify, I’m certain more facts will emerge. Last I checked, she wants to travel to DC by horseback, and so it will take a few months. Democrats are urging Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to accept her low carbon footprint mode of transit, and give her the time she needs to make her arduous journey.

            I thought I had made it clear I wasn’t talking about the Ford case. I don’t know enough about it.

            My case was hypothetical, as I stated – young boy goes to party and drinks or doesn’t drink. Nothing to do with psychos and nothing to do with Kavanaugh.

          • Exscotticus September 23, 2018 at 7:55 pm #

            >>> My case was hypothetical

            Your “hypothetical” takes the few aspects of the Kavanaugh accusation you’re obsessed with and ignores the rest.

            What does “try your luck” mean in your “hypothetical”? Try to lure a girl against her will to a secluded room where he can assault her? Where he “held his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming”? So basically the premeditated acts of a sicko?

            Or perhaps it means to try and meet a nice wholesome girl who would never go all alone to a party wearing a bathing suite where a bunch of older guys are drunk?

      Plus a platform that says the party is almost over, hard times are coming, we’ll need to learn to live with less and more simply, ‘the people’ may have to discipline and harden themselves to accept the new economic realities that are coming … well, this is not a message that will resonate with suburban commuters, happy shoppers, and EBT card users.

Seems to me that when such things happen for real, waiting over three decades to address the issue seriously detracts from the validity of the “crime”. And if you’ve gone to hell, don’t you see a lot of this kind of action all the time? You should be used to it.

    Seems likely that the incident did happen, but her memory of events is impaired by time and her being drunk at the time. It’s more than a little possible that she seized upon Kavenaugh as the perp through one of those “recovered memory” phenomena, and that someone else may have been the one who groped her.

We are not talking rocket science, just money time and materials and a few brains. A leak must be accessible from the bottom via dead space so it can be identified and accessible should repair ever be needed. Having to dig a few feet to get to a problem should not be a problem. Do not give the job to the lowest bidder unless they really know what they are doing. Roof leak and only idiots would design a roof that can’t be repaired.

    I remember that when Obama was still president with about a year and a half to go, and he attempted to fill a Supreme court vacancy. Mitch McConnell queered that by holding off any hearings until after the elections, saying that he wanted to give the voters a voice as to who would appoint the next Justice. After all, there was only a year and a half to go. I remember thinking at the time, the voters already had a voice, they elected Obama, who still had a year and a half to go. Is there a cutoff in the presidency, like after the first two years in office, decisions like that have to be held off until the next president can be elected? The whole thing stinks, and it would stink regardless of which party pulled that stunt. The right will defend McConnells stunt because it fits their agenda, not because it was the right thing to do. It’s just more proof of the way our Democracy has degenerated. It was wrong, and no amount of arguing will make it right, but I guess the end justifies the means right? So it goes.

            You remind me of a sad series of exchanges I had with some SJW types on Facebook who were dissing Duterte and his extrajudicial killings – in towns where the mayor is the brother of the chief of police whose son is married to the sister of the biggest amphetamine dealer in the Province and whose Uncle is the head of the only bank in town. There.Is.No.”LAW”.

            Those who know illegal drugs will agree that from a social aspect speed is by far the most dangerous of all. Heroin just makes you stupid, and larcenous. Or kills you, in an extreme dosage. Cocaine may or may not make you violent while it sizzles your synapses but speed will definitely do the trick: the Wehrmacht barreled through the low countries in three days with the help of bars of Panzerschokolade: chocolate heavily laced with speed.

            When I was in northern Luzon last year I heard of entire villages where farmers and housewives and government officials were all permanently wired, thanks to massive imports of the drug from Taiwan (mostly). A favorite trick was to hide a few kg. in fresh fish being imported.

            It was a plague and there was no legal way to stop it. My SJW counterparts kept accusing me of supporting death squads, in spite of my citing an example related to me by the neighbor of a man shot to death by mistake (it was his son who was the intended target). Same counterparts conspicuously ignored my entreaties to offer another way to rescue the social contract – or at least stop it from burning itself out.

            They had none. We naturally ‘unfriended’ one another.

            Death squads in Brazil, hunting down gangs of throwaway 11-year-olds armed with Glocks. It is a low-level war and it is going on as we engage in these polite exchanges.

            I have no solutions but simply wish to highlight the hypocrisy of SJWs in their comfortable (and well-policed) ghettos pointing fingers.

            Like practically every other large-scale social ill it can be tracked back to overpopulation and what else is new.

Would it have been different had not he been “borked” by liberals in congress? If Kav makes it through, then his revenge can come into play. What will be even better though is if Ginsberg drops out and Trump gets to go for a third select. We may not have seen real fireworks yet.

      Luhrenloup: “He masturbated in front of me. Jeezum, why stand around!”

      Well, yes, but more to the point: Why masturbate in front of a woman in the first place?

      Presumably we’re talking about Louis C.K.. So first, let’s note that he has admitted the allegations are all true. Given that, how is it possible to question his target’s reaction, instead of C.K.’s own behaviour?

      To respond, “Well of course, C.K.’s behaviour was bad” won’t wash. The only culpability in the situation belongs to him and him alone. No one walked in on him during an awkward moment; he imposed himself on at least five women in this way. They are blameless (though they come in for all kinds of odious consequences, regardless). So why blame them? And yet people ask questions like “Why stand around?” as if they know what happened better than the women themselves.

      We expect grown-ups to be able to tell good from bad. So forget about Supreme Court nominees; at least in cases as obvious as the Surprise Masturbator, can we please remember to put the responsibility where it bloody well belongs?

        >>> Well, yes, but more to the point: Why masturbate in front of a woman in the first place?

        Elrond, you might as well also ask why a woman would make up a rape story like this woman did.

        Or why a woman would lie about being the victim of rape, sodomy, and kidnapping like this woman did, which resulted in two innocent men being jailed for 26 years?

        Or why this teenage girl would falsely accuse her ex-boyfriend of drugging and raping her when he refused to rekindle their romance?

        What we expect—Elrond—is for serious allegations to be adjudicated in a court of law with witnesses and evidence.

        • Elrond Hubbard September 21, 2018 at 6:45 pm #

          Ex, I agree with you absolutely that false accusations of rape are terrible. That’s true both because innocent people should not be accused of crimes they didn’t commit, and because true cases of such false accusations help the guilty throw sand in the eyes of justice. False accusations in such a serious area are awful and inexcusable.

          They are also completely irrelevant to the case of Louis C.K.. If you need a hint as to why, I’ve helpfully highlighted the key term up above. Your supposed counter-examples are worthless, because — and see if you can follow the intricate logic here — C.K. has admitted to the accusations. There is no lie.

          “‘These stories are true,’ read the 50-year-old comedian’s statement. ‘At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d— without asking first.

          “‘But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d— isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them.'” (Here’s the link, again.)

          Your posts make clear that you’re an intelligent and articulate person, Ex, so I’m quite incapable of believing you didn’t understand this to begin with. You just have your own kind of sand you like to throw in people’s eyes, for your own reasons.

            I took the liberty of bolding both the thesis and the summation. As you can see, it’s a bit broader than Louis C.K. (who wasn’t even mentioned). It in fact has to do with JHK’s post and Brett Kavanaugh. Or have you been living under a rock up there in the land of yummy tasty maple syrup?

            My point is that we don’t know why people do freaky crazy things and we don’t care. But if you acuse someone of freaky-crazy, the proper place to resolve it is in our justice system—not the fake news Washington Post.

        Weinstein was similarly accused. Masturbating and holding a victim down at the same time is not possible. A person is free to leave such an intimate situation.
        “He masturbated in my presence.”
        They are not blameless if they choose to remain in the situation. Once the zipper goes down before any action takes place, one leaves.
        The responsibility to not ruin a person’s life over an incident which could well have been avoided overrules the accuser’s discomfort. We are all grownups in the room and are well aware of masturbation. that a person masturbates is no reason to ruin their lives.
        Mixed signals are often part of these types of situation, especially with current styles of dress.

          Luhrenloup: “Masturbating and holding a victim down at the same time is not possible.”

          Clearly untrue, as most men outweigh most women. I mean, I think I know what you’re getting at, but this is weak.

          Luhrenloup: “A person is free to leave such an intimate situation.”

          Read the Louis C.K. quote from above: “When you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d— isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them.” C.K. was producing movies, TV shows, comedy tours, etc.. Harvey Weinstein was a much bigger deal, producing movies with eight-figure budgets. Both men had power over the women they mistreated.

          Say your boss called you into his office, shut the door, and asked you if he could show you his penis. Would you instantly feel completely free to leave? Or would you at least stop and think for a second about your paycheque and your future job prospects? Will you go hungry if you say no? Lose your home? How about your family? Then, say the story started to get around, and you couldn’t go anywhere without people whispering about you. How do you like people gossiping about you, and even blaming you, for something that your boss did? How free of your boss’ influence do you feel at that point?

          Luhrenloup: “They are not blameless if they choose to remain in the situation.”

          Dude, WTF? Why are you in any hurry to attach blame to anyone other than the perpetrators? Seriously, I should go rob your house. Then if I get caught, I can say it’s your fault. You are not blameless for leaving your house outdoors, where people can see it.

          • Luhrenloup September 22, 2018 at 12:39 pm #

            Why are you in such a hurry to paint men as power mad and women as their vassals? I would leave in a heartbeat if the boss tried any funny business. There is always another job, better to sling hamburgers than be degraded by someone who’s obviously out of control.

            Women who stay at the job with the sexually abusive boss are valuing the job more than its drawbacks. If a woman wants to do that, that’s fine. But her decision must be respected. She can’t go back afterward and jump on the me-too train.

            what is so offensive in this me-too business is this casting of women as the victims of men, just as you are doing in your comments.

    The single worst decision made in this country was George W Bush’s invasion of the middle east

    If you consider that US that time was on a brink of a nuclear war with Russia after Yeltsin’s reminder to Clinton from Beijing about the existence of Russian Nuclear Triad, taking over-aggressive military to the ME was not such a bad alternative.

    It is the other thing that after the brilliant military victory in Iraq, the massive sabotage of US military effort by US Deep State cooperating with ME Jihadists had begun.

    CNN/Fake News’s Chris Cillizza is defending Cory Booker’s teenage sexual hijinks today in a “political analysis” piece (notice: not under opinion).

    I take this as CNN laying groundwork for a Booker presidential bid in 2020.

    The piece is written assuming Kavanaugh is guilty of the accusation, and defends Booker’s actions as a “groping incident” (notice: not termed assault) which in part is excusable because, Booker openly acknowledges that he did it.

  31. Steeleje September 21, 2018 at 1:16 pm #

    I was a teenager and the same age as Kavanaugh and his accuser back in the 1980’s. Maybe teenagers who engaged in ‘necking’ where I lived (Pittsburgh, PA) approached it a bit differently – I do not recall ever being held down against my will and having my mouth covered so I could not utter a protest the way ‘necking’ went back in the day. Perhaps I just dated a better class of boy………

    Maybe Kavanaugh is a rapey creep, maybe he isn’t. My objection to him is that he is against a woman’s right to choose and to do with her own body what she will. One of his recent cases involved a migrant girl being held by the U.S. government who wanted to terminate her pregnancy. She jumped through all of the many hoops and was granted permission by a judge to undergo the procedure. The Trump administration appealed that judge’s opinion and the case went before a panel of judges that Kavanaugh sat on. He did everything he could to delay the panel’s decision in order to run down the clock on the girl being able to undergo the procedure legally. Luckily for the girl, he did not succeed and she was able to proceed with her decision. He also calls contraceptives ‘abortion pills’, which anyone who does a bit of scientific reading knows that these medications are nothing of the sort.

    I find his need to control the body-autonomy of half of our citizenry beyond troubling. I wonder if perhaps he has control issues when it comes to women and maybe his accuser shouldn’t be so quickly dismissed as some hormone-addled middle-aged woman with so poor a memory that she mixes-up the identity of the person who held her down while trying to tear off her clothes during a ‘necking’ gone wrong.

    But what do I know, I’m just a middle-aged woman who has the experience of a lifetime on which to base my opinions – a lifetime of seeing women dismissed, diminished and degraded.

          • Steeleje September 22, 2018 at 12:58 am #

            I haven’t lied about a thing. Most terminations are performed before 20 weeks and would not be viable outside the womb. I would support a woman’s right to choose in any circumstance, if she decides to terminate because that fetus has spina bifida or some other horror of a deformity that is her decision.

            Your prolife arguments are of no consequence to me and you will never change my mind, so save your breath.

      My parents were like Archie and Edith but since then, most of what I’ve seen is the opposite: seeing men dismissed, diminished, and degraded. But Feminism thrives on crisis so you would so that. So does Communism. During one election at the height of the Stalinist Terror there were signs saying, “Dare to vote for Stalin”.

      You believe this women based on political considerations – and that’s simply wrong and leads to mob justice. The furies have it in for Kavanaugh and if we give in to them, we’ll be living in a state of terror.

      • Steeleje September 21, 2018 at 4:23 pm #

        I am open to believing this woman because I know what men do to women. Her testimony will decide if I believe what is being alleged. I have my own reasons for being against Kavanaugh

        I have seen firsthand women assaulted because they rejected the advances of men. I have sat in hospitals with women who have been beaten and raped – sometimes by men they considered friends.

        I have witnessed women blamed for their assaults because they were out alone at night coming home from work.

        So don’t tell me why I believe anything, you don’t know me or my life experiences.

    Funny, no one seems to be arguing that Mr. Kavanaugh is the most qualified jurist available. A boat load of potential disasters are lurking just below the horizon and the solution is to choose someone for the court who belives the answer to our most pressing problems is to limit access to birth control. As Dwight Yoakam wrote “I may be slow but I ain’t blind”

    I would like to read his response the the question “Is the use of a condom abortion?”

    • volodya September 21, 2018 at 2:51 pm #

      Abortion may be a form of birth control, but when either “left” or “right” toss out those bits of meat that gets everyone all a snarlin’ it would be best to step back and ask, what’s the point of it?

      The point of it of course is set up a diversion while the country gets looted. Abortion is portrayed as one of those issues absolutely central to a woman’s well-being.

      But there’s an issue that’s even more central to a woman’s well-being that gets obscured by all the smoke and fire of the abortion issue, that is, her earning an income that enables her to eat, to pay rent, to make a car payment, or alternatively, to have a hubby that can support her and her off-spring without the constant anxiety of homelessness and destitution.

      A woman may need an abortion once in her life, or maybe twice. But she needs to eat every day and so do her kids and she needs to pay rent. That’s the bigger issue than abortion. Or, for that matter, birth-control.

      • Steeleje September 21, 2018 at 3:13 pm #

        The right to choose or have access to reliable birth control is absolutely central to a woman’s well being and successful future – I argue it is the most important issue.

        Example – A woman falls pregnant and termination is not an option. She is then unable to finish her schooling and must find work so she can feed, clothe and keep a roof over her and her child’s head. It will most likely be low-paying work – work that will not be of the caliber of work she would have been able to win had she finished her schooling. She is then, more often than not, trapped in a cycle of low paying jobs and living on the margins of society relying on the state to subsidize the shitty income she earns from Walmart.

        She may only need an abortion one or twice in her life, but it can make all the difference to the quality of life she will have.

        • Janos Skorenzy September 22, 2018 at 12:52 am #

          “Falls pregnant” – contemplate the absurdity of that line. If she’s not smart or responsible enough to avoid that, she doesn’t belong in college.

          Notice she avoids the humane third option of giving birth and then giving the baby up for adoption. Truly abortion is the sacrament of this evil sect – a latter day worship of Hecate.

          Quality of life? As in mourning the murder of your baby every year around the time it would have been born? Not all women I admit – only the best ones who “fall” into this sin.

      • Tate September 21, 2018 at 3:32 pm #

        Having a bread-winner reliable male partner (i.e., a husband) is what is central to a woman’s well-being. Women don’t need to earn incomes themselves. They need to bear children & raise them properly for a real future, that is to say, society’s well-being.

        • Steeleje September 21, 2018 at 3:55 pm #

          I guess if women were mindless broodmares that would be a lovely little life. But see, we’re not – we have our own dreams and aspirations and those do not include having your pipe at slippers at the ready.

          Society doesn’t need more children, there are too many people on this planet and resources are not finite. Society needs to truly address the issues – poverty, equal pay, environmental pollution, racism, sexism, gun violence, education, truly affordable healthcare – that is what needs to be done properly for a real future and the well-being of society.

          • wet dog September 21, 2018 at 4:20 pm #

            Mothers are not mindless broodmares. Mothers and Fathers are the linchpins of society, and to denigrate the most important job of all shows your shallowness.

            Motherhood is infinitely more rewarding than having an ’empowering’ career in accounting, or marketing, or whatever nonsense big business is promoting to girls these days. That’s why anti-depressant sales are skyrocketing among women. They aren’t among children and men they love, but among backbiting bastards in toxic, corporate offices: no love, no family, and reduced to being a sex object. And a long, lonely life ahead once they are past 35.

            That’s the evilness that feminism has produced.

            It is an inescapable fact that raising children in a traditional “Father knows best” pipe and slippers scenario, where Dad goes to work and Mom takes care of home and kids is best for everyone involved. Women who choose not to marry and birth children could and should have any job they are capable of doing. Overpopulation is the single biggest problem on this planet and all the problems we have are made infinitely worse because of it. I often hear people, usually older than me, bemoaning the state of the world and its problems increasing. What they don’t seem to understand is that the problems are increasing simply because the population has grown exponentially. If X% of the population in 1950 were mass murderers and X% rapists and thieves, then X% of billions is more than X% of millions. You will always have a percentage of the population that for whatever reason are criminal, sick demented, stupid, or just plain evil.

Oh, and it’s not the fucking woman’s body. That cluster of cells is a separate human being that should have the right to live. You’re demanding the right to murder your unborn children in the womb.

            More murder of actual children is happening everyday – the non-stop wars that the world’s governments wage are one big kiddie murderfest. You can go choke on your outrage and be honest with yourself that it isn’t the murder of the unborn that bothers you, but that women still have the right to legally terminate a pregnancy.

        As Keith pointed out in the last thread, testosterone enables men to be better risk-takers than women, also more practical decision-makers.

Rule your wife, said Delphic maxim No. 95. Like Eastern sages, the great Greek tragedians intuited the perennial antagonism between male structure and female chaos. First principle, O Deplorables, for any healthy and lasting culture: If men do not rule the house, in time women psychologically dominate the culture, and that means dysfunction throughout. So Nature Herself has made things, and hence the deep, dark gender lesson of our time.”

            In fairness, ‘incel’ seems quite mild compared to this aimed at Steeleje the previous day by Tate:

            ‘You seem to be a very bitter woman, probably barren’ [my bold – WTF???]…’who drank the kool-aid & then got sidelined in whatever endeavor you thought you were pursuing. Sorry it didn’t work out for you. Marriage can be negotiated successfully.’

            Especially given that she seems to be a happily married mother and a nurse.

            I think, in view of the provocation, that Steeleje was admirably restrained.

    Chronicles of the World Civil War in the USA

    Let me remind you that the union of Russia, Israel and the United States took shape several days after the arrest of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and Trump as a sheep destined for slaughter gave a go-ahead for the missile attack on Syria with “new smart missiles.”

    And it happened almost exactly one year after the missile attack, which according to my story, which made an indelible impression on the so-called “Chinese diplomat”, began under the table, on which stood the chocolate cake for the Chinese Premier:

    Trump at the time when his guest bit off the first piece of the cake, took off his boot under the table and with the thumb of his left foot, through a specially cut hole in his socks, pressed the very button that Hillary had given to Lavrov, and Lavrov returned it to Trump, began a consensual attack on Syria, which killed only the traitors, who for a very large amount in a Swiss bank armed Syrian bombers with chemical bombs without knowledge of the Syrian leadership or the crew.

    I specifically recall this story after the tragic events in Latakia (a downing of the Russian IL-20 plane) – a fairy tale, of course, but with a hint, a good lesson to good fellas, especially if we recall that it was with that missile attack on Syria on Friday the 13th in April 2017 that the first stage of the overthrow of Trump by the Deep State began to fail.

    And I myself, with my own eyes the day before saw on PBS an interview of a high-ranking official of the Department of Justice, who pleased the American “intelligentsia” with a message that the arrest warrant for Trump had already been issued by a special secret jury and on Monday he will be arrested.

    But a year later the attack was real, and not consensual, and it began as usual with a televised order “to bomb!, bomb!!, bomb!!!”, given by a very pale-looking Trump, who that day learned that his lawyer was secretly taping all his conversations; and with the glorious launches of the Tomahawks, but literally 15 minutes into this military euphoria, which until then invariably shaped the military adventures of the United States, disappeared somewhere, and the usual American TV-chewing gum began, and half an hour later, a very pale US Defense Secretary Mattis nearly fainted, when asked about the US losses during this missile attack, interrupted the interview after the through-clenched teeth statement that he had no information about such losses, and rumors started to spread over the Internet about a sunk US missile destroyer, and then of sunk American submarines, and not only off the shores of Syria, but across the world’s oceans, and I must say that the next day, these rumors received confirmation when the BBC reported that the British nuclear submarine could not participate in this missile attack on Syria because Russian diesel-electric submarine, which NATO officials call a black hole for its stealth, crept up and forced the British to dive in a panic, instead of shooting.

    But Trump, after such “victories”, became very cheerful and said that he does not care about his lawyer’s tapes, and on the very same day it became known about the deal between Putin’s Russia, Trump’s America and Netanyahu’s Israel.

    According to this deal, Russia is finishing off ISIS in Syria, without interfering with Israel’s fights in Syria with Iranians, who through Hezbollah are creeping up to its borders, the United States will render Russia economic assistance in rebuilding Syria and ruined Ukraine, after it gets rid of Ukro-Nazis installed their by Merkel and Nuland, and also will take away from Iran the slightest opportunity to create a nuclear bomb, and Israel will save Trump from Hillary’s “New York prosecutors”.

    And the Israeli part of the agreement was manifested right away in the person of highly influential Republican senator Lindsay Graham, Israel’s great friend, who right after these events unconditionally defected to Trump’s side and, despite years of friendship with McCain and Trump hating, rallied the Republican Party around the President, despite Hillary’s agents senator Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan.

    And then the Clintonoids made a fatal mistake…

    To be continued…

    It is really amazing, yet pathetic how little it takes anymore to derail the US government every time it tries to accomplish even the simplest functions. The incompetence and impotence of the American government and the American people has to make you wonder why we have not already crumbled into dust. There is nothing holding them together and everything tearing them apart. It is almost a shame that the movie “The Kingsmen” was fantasy and that there is no real way that some mega bad guy (good guy maybe) could just transmit a signal to every human’s cellphone that would drive them into a murderous rage. That might be a way to get something done.

  37. FincaInTheMountains September 21, 2018 at 4:28 pm #

    Chronicles of the World Civil War in the USA p.2

    And then the Clintonoids made a fatal mistake by recording the speech of the chairman of the intelligence committee Davin Nunes, done by the Clinton spy, at a meeting with the Republican sponsors that the impeachment of the Deputy Attorney General, Rosenstein, announced several days before, overseeing Muller’s investigation = a legalized attempt to overthrow Trump, is being postponed since this may prevent Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice.

    It is there that any Mueller summons for interrogation of Trump will inevitably end up, as until now everything was a preparation for the so-called “perjury trap” for Trump since without Trump falling into this trap the only thing that Mueller can do with his New York prosecutors is to pass the results of his investigation to the Congress for impeachment of the President, and even if the Clintonoids in the Republican Party will vote with the Democrats, this impeachment still has to be approved by the Senate, in which the majority belongs to Republicans, rallied around Trump by Israel’s great friend Lindsay Graham.

    Thus, thanks to the stupid spying by the Clintonoids, the plan became known to ordinary members of the Republican Party, which the Trump adherents themselves could not do for so-called “ethical reasons”.

    The first point of this plan was that first Brett Kavanaugh becomes a Supreme Court Justice that shifts the balance of power in the Supreme Court and blocks any attempts to catch Trump in a perjury trap and the opportunity to deny the blatant forgery of the results of the November elections by Clintonoids if they go to such an extreme measure and this automatically reduces the likely arrogance of such an attempt.

    Then Trump declassified the case of the so-called Steele Dossier, with Bastinda’s money prepared by someone in Moscow, and on the basis of declassified materials, the victorious Republicans impeach Rosenstein, Trump dismisses Attorney General Sessions, whom Bastinda sent back to him in early 2016, and appoints a new Attorney General who nails Clintonoids in the DOJ, and Trump takes the hammer to those in the State Department and the Pentagon who forced him to bomb Syria, as well as to Ukranian Poroshenko, who provided Bastinda and accordingly Mueller with the so-called granary book of Yanukovich, on the basis of which Mueller did get a conviction of Manafort for failing to pay taxes, the former head of the election campaign not only of Yanukovich, but also of Trump.

    And then, after Manafort was convicted on the same day as Michael Cohen agreed to cooperate with Mueller = surrendered Trump, the Democrats fell into euphoria and like Napoleon near Moscow waited for Trump to come out with the keys to the White House on a silver platter, just like weaker Nixon did.

    Trump instead gave an interview where he explained to the Americans that in this case they are facing an economic crisis and severe poverty, and Trump’s head of the legal team, very popular in the US Mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani, promised the Democrats that in the case of Trump’s impeachment his supporters, who are also supporters of the Second Amendment to the Constitution, will resort exactly to this Amendment as written by the Founders and Clintonoids will be badly beaten up, and not in court, but in the open field, ala Grad MRLS system.

    And a grave silence! And along the road dead McCains lurking with Scythes!

    “If I were president — and I may get there yet — I’d send federal marshals into Rod Rosenstein’s office to seize these documents before they are mysteriously “lost.” A tremendous tension hangs over this transaction. Imagine the awful possibility that Mr. Trump may have to declare some kind of martial law to roust out these seditious rascals and clean up their departments. There’s your Fourth Turning horror show with whipped cream and a cherry on top.”

    That prognosis might be a little too dour. Martial law would be welcomed by half the nation. Let the other side react to it. Put the snowflakes, Maxine and Schumer and Pelosi and the professors etc. to the test. If only.

    But now Trump is backing off his demand for declassification and release of unredacted documents.Certain allies advised against it. WTF? Can you follow the bouncing ball? Now it’s going to the Justice Department’s IG for review. Devin Nunes of House Intelligence said if these documents are not released it “should worry the heck out of the American people”.

    Remember the movie “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”, when alien pods were taking people over and Kevin McCarthy was actually found sane? Well here and now we have to worry about only one pod, and that is the ‘Peril of Democracy’. Who will be sane enough and strong enough to preserve it?

    The ongoing criminal conspiracy to overthrow a sitting president continues and the Crisis of the Coup is casus belli.

    Nuts n’ sluts theorizing is old & worn. What kind of individual would ever make it to prime time tv with false allegations and a doctorate to boot? The woman is obviously telling the truth otherwise you would not be spending so much time writing about it as though it was unworthy but somehow ‘newsworthy’ at the same time? A writer’s rhetorical trick aside, who in their right mind would step up to the plate with that sort of accusation if it was indeed false?

    Lets have some examples, Jim? What nuts n’ sluts can you identify by name that have stood up on mainstream media and made false accusations of sexual impropriety over the last four decades?

    Why can’t the apologist writers & rhetoricians realize that when a woman stands up with accusations of sexual impropriety they are invariably telling the truth as any man on the omnibus would envision it?

    The Nuts n’ Sluts legal defence is an old old canard & a tired one that is lame, man.

    As long as the voting simpletons acquiesce to hierarchy of dog-eat-dog and zero-sum politics this chaos will be the norm rather than the extreme.

    Even those that lament “today’s politics” and have lost faith in the system, are too, missing the point.

    Their systematic thought or conceptualization of the issue. The very way they conjure a thought about it is flawed.

    The corporate media hand-in-hand with social media have monetized stoking the fires of chaos, scandal, and disruption. Always a new five-alarm fire that can only be doused with enough clicks, eyes, and reads. When the curiosity and shock subsides, a new fix is in the works. The march towards totalitarianism presently at hand is being lead by the entities that the masses venerate most: entertainment, media, internet search providers, smart phone makers, web based merchant monopolies, social media platforms, and 401k administrators. They have everything you think you want and need and you listen.

    Steve Jobs said that people don’t know what they want. They simply don’t know. That human condition. The searching. For that next thing. That thing that will quell that urge. The next goal. The next possession. The next hurdle. The next challenge. He understood, and in fact said, it was up to him show people what they want.

    He did, and proved himself right.

    And it happens all the time. The power of suggestion. The preying on the bad code of human psychology. Exploiting it.

    Even the Kardashians, so often mocked here, could do it. And they keep doing it. Nobody was looking for a non-famous family of do-nothings to follow. But they told you you did. And you did. The media told you on TV, in magazines, in music, on social media. So you did.

    Cosmological evolution can be understood as the universe contemplating itself. Understanding itself. Sentience attained.

    Most people, or the eyes, ears, hands, and mind of the universe, so far as we know, cannot even understand themselves. See the patterns and the programming. Despite following it. Perfectly. Right on time. Tick-tock.

    Not enough quality.

    The road is long. We too, and all our idiocy, shall pass.

    • tucsonspur September 21, 2018 at 8:10 pm #

      It’s humanity. The world. The flesh. The devil.

      One wonders that if we live in a multiverse, what a waste of universes, to us, if they contain no sentient beings.

      If you are honest and older, you can come close to understanding yourself. Limitations. Recognition of the Mysteries. Of the Realities.

      We have a window on our universe and the view can be terrific.

      The road is short. We will pass quickly. Into eternity.

    Chronicles of the World Civil War in the USA p.3

    For two weeks the victorious cries of Clintonoids were not heard from, all mourned about the “unexpectedly” died from cancer McCain, who was not able to turn his friend, but as it turned out even more Israeli friend Lindsey Graham.

    And suddenly the Syrians knock down the Russian IL-20 with 15 Russians on board in such a way that the responsibility for this lies with Israel. I draw your attention that the description of this catastrophe given by the Russian Ministry of Defense and Shoigu excludes the possibility of provocation, unless the Israeli spy was recruited on the base of Khemeymim and transferred to Israel in advance the agreed time for approaching the IL-20 landing, and also that the Syrians who were handed over the S-200 are not aware of the results of the missile attack in April 2018.

    Nevertheless, the extreme timeliness of this catastrophe for the Clintonoids, who had been on the eve of a low start to do a wet job on Trump as the result of his assistance to the victims of Hurricane Florence, just as they had soaked Bush Jr. as the results of his assistance to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, as McCain died suspiciously in a timely manner, giving Clintonoids the opportunity not to discuss the statements of Trump and Rudy Giuliani about the consequences of impeachment.

    They were so carefully prepared for the repetition of Katrina that they even filmed the correspondent of CNN being knocked from his feet as a result of hurricane, ignoring the pedestrians who got into the frame, their hands in the pockets of shorts strolling in the rain despite the universal cataclysm.

    But then there was some kind of mysticism and the biggest hurricane in the history of America suddenly died down, leaving Trump a reason to sarcastically call it the wettest in American history.

    But if this did not happen, the reports of tens of thousands of victims of Hurricane Florence, combined with a description of the Israeli conflict with Russia in the vicinity of Megiddo Mountain, would be a marvelous confirmation of the Clinton-Neocon interpretation of the Apocalypse in general and of Armageddon in particular.

    And Florence was indeed the biggest in the history of America on the eve of the disaster in Latakia, but an hour before the disaster in Latakia, the same forces that made it the largest in the history of America made it the wettest. I’m already talking about Lindsey Graham and those speeches that he would have addressed to Putin, slandering his beloved Israel.

    I will write about the mysticism of this event, so it is surprisingly reminiscent of the mysticism of Hurricane Sandy, which I happened to experience and before my eyes Sandy threw Bastinda out of the White House in 2012, but this time I see even more amazing mysticism in the fact that after a failure of Plan A, Bastinda, the Great and Terrible, invoked Plan B, which goal is to slow down for a while a vote on Brett Kavanaugh, confirming him as a Justice of the US Supreme Court: school acquaintance of Brett Kavanaugh told Senator Feinstein that 35 years ago 17-year-old Brett, after drinking himself to the memory loss of the event, made something to her that she still can not forget, and then by her assumptions, it could escalate into rape. But it did not.

    And she does not remember where it was, or when, but she requests an investigation by the FBI, and she does not want to talk about how something almost turned into rape 35 years ago to the US Senate and Congress.

    Moreover, she did not even want her name to become known to the Senate and Congress, but Congressional Democrats who were so upset about her misfortune that they leaked her name to the press and now if she wants to break the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, at least for a day she must today consent to testify in Congress on Monday, after which Brett Kavanaugh is likely to be confirmed anyway on the same day after several hours of persistent congressional questions about how a drunken teenager threw up all over her 35 years ago.

    And personally my attention is attracted in this story, two circumstances:

    1. The fact that it demonstrates how the trap of perjury works: Bret Kavanaugh first heard about this story in conjunction with the description of the place and time of the party, where it happened, and, confused, immediately said that he was not there, instead of saying that he does not remember anything like that. And immediately out of the bushes a classmate shows out, who said that she was there and began to develop the case of lying under the oath of the future Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, which has nothing to do with whether something could turn out 35 years ago into rape or not. But something there did not work out, or the party turned out to be not the same, and the matter has died down, but in this connection the second circumstance attracts attention, namely

    2 The low sophistication of Plan B and the striking haste of its introduction. It seems that the activation of plan B occurred just minutes before, and this from notable events can only be a catastrophe in Latakia, or something that made Putin talk about a chain of accidents after a statement of the Defense Ministry agreed with him, in which a chain of accidents is described, but a conclusion is made about provocative actions of Israel.

    Now it seems that on Monday, not only Brett Kavanaugh will become a Justice of the US Supreme Court, but immediately Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, supervising Mueller, will be impeached – he disclosed that, secretly from President Trump, he recorded his conversations with him in order to bypass the impeachment procedure to subject the president to dismissal by virtue of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution – President Flew Over the Cuckoo’s nest.

    ople, including three baby girls, at a neighborhood nursery in Flushing, Queens, early Friday, the NYPD said. The woman then tried to end her life.

    One of the babies is three days old and suffered a stab wound to the stomach, another is 20 days old and suffered lacerations to the ear, chin, and lip. The third baby is one month old and suffered a stab wound to the stomach. The infants are in critical but stable condition at area hospitals.

    A female worker at the center was stabbed eight times in the torso and a 31-year-old man who tried to stop the assaults was stabbed in the leg. Police said he is the father of a child who was at the daycare center. It is not clear whether his child was among those stabbed.

    A 911 call at 3:44 a.m. alerted police to the assaults at a multi-family building at 43-67 161st Street. Nine babies were inside the building.

    The alleged attacker is a 52-year-old woman. Police found her in the basement with a slash wound to her left wrist.

      Janet, you sound like the progressive liberal you are. Who needs due process? She says he did something, so by social definition he did it. No questions, the man is at fault. I watched a lady lawyer one night talking about a large percentage of females utilizing this judicial can of worms to get something for themselves or to get revenge on a male. Yes, females lie, period. Somehow the Left has not only forgotten this, they manipulate the political play house utilizing middle aged women with questionable memories.

      Women need to protect themselves from predators, NOW, not 34 years from now at the beckoning of a group of me-too fanatics. Stop the excuse making and get tough with the bad guys. NOW! Otherwise it will just continue.

      And who are the biggest bad guys, the assaulters or the manipulators who manipulate the victims 34 years later.

      Men, just because another person is female does not make them impervious to evil of all sorts. Ladies, if you want to be treated as equals, act like it.

      Ozone, the Democrat wing of the ruling class put forth a great deal of smoke about how concerned they are about the lot of women and they make abortion rights central to their argument. Some women may need to have one but not all.

      OTOH ALL women need to eat every day and they need to pay for housing every month. These are necessities for survival, necessities which are obscured not by just the abortion-baiting by BOTH wings of the ruling class but also other snarl-inducing issues, gay marriage being one, immigration being another.

      For my part, I ain’t havin’ it. The ruling class could give a shit about ordinary women or Blacks or gays or Latinos, the rulers only give a shit about maintaining their own exorbitant wealth and their power and position in the food-chain.

      They obscure what they’ve done to wreck and ruin the lot of the ordinary Joe and Jane regardless of race or sexual orientation and, by and large, I’d say their smokescreens have been successful.

    I am a big fan of CFN and have read this blog religiously, but this is JHK’s most disappointing post ever. Democrats are notorious for rolling over and allowing Republicans to bully them every which way to Sunday. How does bringing up an attempted rape incident compare to Republicans obstructing Obama’s Supreme Court pick for an unprecendented 293 days, all because “it was an election year?” Now, in another election year, Republicans want to slam Kavanaugh through as quickly as possible without proper vetting. What’s the rush?? In view of the fact that the last Supreme Court pick was stolen, why shouldn’t Democrats pull out all the stops?

    Maybe Dems are approaching the obstruction of Kavanaugh wrong (or maybe not), but at least they’re finally showing a tiny bit of spine. Nearly all information on Kavanaugh has been kept secret from the public, and he has lied several times under oath. That’s what Dems should be focusing on, as the confirmation of Kavanaugh would be disastrous for at least a generation. How ironic that JHK pooh-poohs the idea of a woman being sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh when women’s rights are at stake here.

    I was a lifelong Democrat until the DNC rigged the primaries for Hillary and threw Bernie Sanders under the bus. Both parties suck.

    Clearly, the solution is to have Sirlexa secretly video record all sexual encounters as an insurance policy for heterosexual men.

    Perhaps some entrepreneur will devise a nanobot camera that can be released in the boudoir. It can take a perch and record the action and be the ultimate fella’s wingman. Watching over his guy when most vulnerable to she-saids.

    For now, men should be advised to use their phones and other cameras. Just make sure you hit record before stating, “Shall we have consensual intercourse and sexual fondling?”

      I have a much better solution as trademarked by Henry the VIII – who hung up half of the Cistercian monks high and short and other half sent to soldiers (I wonder where – Afghanistan?) and almost restored the Orthodox Church of England.

      Because Cistercian monks are not playing the same role as they played back then, the Neocon-Clinton bunch ruling the US since at least 1993 could be a better choice.

            Well it would be nice to think we’ll never actually end up engaged in nuclear – or even conventional – fisticuffs, Finca, Russian kleptocrats and Perfidious Albion-ites notwithstanding.

            You may soon find that your ‘England’ terminology is more accurate than it is currently. The way the current Brexit shambles is going, Northern Ireland is quite possibly headed for the departure lounge and Scotland may soon make its own exasperated exit.

            During the course of last week I found myself thinking the unthinkable. Surveying the national (UK) pratfall, yet having no time for the Nats or their leader – who are unable to manage either the health service or the education service satisfactorily even with subs from England, because their tiny minds are on other things – I nevertheless found myself wondering if I could vote for independence in the putative Indyref2.

            There is only so much cr@p one can take from the more venal section of the squabbling English Tories. And one might as well be hung, economically speaking, for a sheep as a lamb.

            And, when we next watched the news together, my husband, without any prompting, said exactly the same thing. And he’s not even Scottish. David Cameron will be able to survey the results of his triple whammy from his £35K garden shed and wax lyrical about the law of unintended consequences.

            At least one of my brothers (and quite possibly both), in England, would love to see the Conservative and Unionist Party given a kicking by Scotland going its own way.

            Perhaps we will be a lesson to all with regard to the coming fragmentations of the Long Emergency, as our standard of living plummets.

      According to Dr. Martin Lings a work of art, all art, not just the drama of Shakespeare, resonates with the reader of the book or the audience in the theater only if that work contains some truth, which we know because of our stay in the World Above before birth, but forget with the first cry at birth, and again remember when breathing our last.

      Forget but not entirely, and when we are confronted with a work of art which contains some analogue of the events in the World Above, our soul trembles and weeps and this what Aristotle calls catharsis.

      So, a “foetus” is a person who still staying in the world Above.

        I know that Kavanaugh is guilty because he’s been accused. But that’s not why I don’t like him. My gut tells me that he’s more mouse than man. You can wipe your ass with that law degree. It’s not so much that he’ll be a Trump tool, but that he’s just another shyster dweeb, up there with Sessions and Rosenstein. And then there’s Roe vs. Wade.

        “He became visibly uncomfortable when Sen. Kamala Harris attempted to pull out Judge Kavanaugh’s actual views on the legality of abortion, and again cited judicial independence as the reason he could not comment. He then all but burst into flames when she moved on to the question, ‘Can you think of any laws that give government the power to make decisions about the male body?'” This and more can be found here:

    It turned out that the behavior of the Russian public and the Russian Clinton media in regards to the provocation with shooting down of IL-20 shocked not only me, but most of the pro-Russian Israel and even such a pro-Russian man as Avigdor Eskin, who called the unfolding campaign in the Russian media a Blood Libel and Goebbels propaganda.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avigdor_Eskin

    And this is serious, and can lead to very serious consequences for Russia and Israel, especially if one looks at how the Clintonoids and Russophobes in Israel have revived.

    There are Colored Projects in any country, including Israel.

    And the Russian public in this situation turns out to be a bull, in whose face a red rag is waved, in the role of which Israel is playing, in order to divert attention from the matador who provoked this fight with a red rag.

    I do not write these lines to save a red rag from your horns, my dear readers, but in order to distract your attention from it and draw your attention to the matador who already holds a sword in his hand in order to kill you.

    And for this we must understand that if according to the official statements of the Russian Ministry of Defense Israeli planes flew to Latakia at 22:10, flew out at 22:15, and IL-20 was shot down at 23:00, then there is no causal link between the Israeli air raid and the death of Russian pilots , despite the fact that the raid in a minute after the warning is clearly a provocation, the task of which is to question the agreement between Russia and Israel on the prevention of dangerous incidents in Syria.

    But the IL-20 catastrophe is not a provocation by Israel, but is a provocation of the same matador who used Israeli rudeness for :

    1. Breaking the global agreement of Putin, Trump and Netanyahu, of which I wrote and which is related to the agreement on the prevention of dangerous incidents.

    2. To create long-term hostile relations between Israel and Russia, which could undoubtedly lead to the spoiling of Trump and Putin’s relations and the transfer of some Jews from the Trump camp to the Clinton camp on the eve of the November elections and the start of the hot civil war in the USA.

    3. To impose on Russia the role of Gog and Magog in the Middle East conflict, and the rest of the world the very interpretation of the Apocalypse shared by American neocons with ISIS, which plays a decisive role not only in the ideological and religious confrontation in the United States, but also in the worldwide War of the Roses, which I call the World Civil War, the religious character of which has already fully manifested itself in Ukraine.

    Orthodox Church split fuels Russia-Ukraine tension

    bbc.com/news/world-europe-45396464

    And Professor Ford yesterday had to consent to an interrogation by Congress and the Senate on Monday or to see as a teenager, who 35 years ago did or did not threw up all over her, is confirmed as a Justice of the US Supreme Court.

    And this is what I was going to describe as the finale of the tragedy that began in New York and Syria in April 2018, but today it has received additional time for reflection, and the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh has been suspended in the air along with all the other events that should have followed this confirmation, which is a direct result of the anti-Semitic bazaar in the Russian media and social networks, as well as the IL-20 disaster itself and the death of 15 Russian pilots, eternal memory to them, and all of that is the result of a speech by V. Putin in defense of the increase in retirement age and the associated fall in his popularity.

    “Maybe Dems are approaching the obstruction of Kavanaugh wrong (or maybe not)” –Jloughrey

    I don’t think the Dems are wrong. It’s obvious that Brett Kavanaugh is unfit for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. He certainly hasn’t shown the “good behavior” that the Constitution expects him to show.

    He denies receiving stolen, confidential documents when he worked in the White House, even though there’s substantial evidence that he did. He lied to the Senate about this in 2004 and 2006, when he was under consideration for his seat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals — and he lied again this month during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

    As the New York Times wrote last week: “Attending a strategy session as a White House staffer is not a crime. Lying under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee, on the other hand, is.”

    It looks like Judge Kavanaugh has already committed perjury on multiple occasions. Now we’re hearing there may be more outrageous and unlawful behavior in his past. Will he lie about that, too? Kavanaugh shouldn’t be confirmed to the Supreme Court

      It looks like Judge Kavanaugh has already committed perjury on multiple occasions.

      As I said, that’s exactly how the perjury trap works:

      The fact that it demonstrates how the trap of perjury works: Brett Kavanaugh first heard about this story in conjunction with the description of the place and time of the party, where it happened, and, confused, immediately said that he was not there, instead of saying that he does not remember anything like that. And immediately out of the bushes a classmate shows out, who said that she was there and began to develop the case of lying under the oath of the future Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States

I am starting to understand now why his country is converting to the Leftist amoral, the ends justify the means, mentality. Intelligent people on this blog are denying Kavanaugh the bare essential of due process before condemning him. You all sound like Janet. Impale him on his petard for political gain. Were all of you there 37 years ago at that party? Two witnesses that were at the party have already denied her allegations.

      Well I’m clearly not considered intelligent but I do seem to be considered ‘lefty’, so for the record I entirely agree that he is absolutely entitled to due process, as should anyone else be in the same position. Both alleged perpetrators and alleged victims.

      It’s equally unacceptable to defame either the alleged victim or the alleged perpetrator before said process.

    Anti-White male animus in the gaming industry is getting worse.

    “One Angry Gamer” writes:

    Over the course of the year Creative Assembly have been updating Total War: Rome II, issuing balance patches, modifying certain maps, and changing some of the political leaders and generals in the game with retroactive modifications. One thing that gamers noticed is that half their generals and leaders began turning into females and that more and more of their generals started having darker skin tones. When the developer was called out for changing the game and that the company was trying to utilize historical revisionism to change demographics, Creative Assembly’s Ella McConnell responded by saying that their games are “historically authentic” not “historically accurate”.

    It’s not just the generals, apparently – it’s the troops as well. Women firing war bows is just about the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. Do these retards know that war bows have draw weights over 100lbs? You think women can fire these things?

    It all started back in August of 2018, when forum posts began popping up questioning why so many of their generals and leaders were magically turning into women? Some users made others aware via the review scores on the Steam page, with gamers like Chaos Puppy writing…

    “When some fans voiced concerns that there were elements to Rome II that were grossely historically inaccurate, like over 50% of your generals women, Creative Assembly told their fans that their games were NOT hisotically accurate, and if they didn’t like it, not to buy it. So if you are looking for a simulation that tries to offer the strategies, tactics, and expereinces of antiquity, this game may not be for you.” [sic]

    Chaos Puppy isn’t wrong, and actually provided a visual example of the issue, where a large pool of potential generals in the game are depicted as women of color.

    The issue spilled over into the forums across multiple threads. In one thread that was eventually locked, community manager Ella McConnell made a post on August 13th, 2018 telling gamers that if they don’t like the generals and leaders being replaced with women, they can either get a mod, or stop playing, because Creative Assembly makes “historically authentic” games not “historically accurate” games…

    “This thread is a mess so I’m locking it (and bans have been issued for those who repeatedly violated Steam community guidelines).

    “As has been said previously: Total War games are historically authentic, not historically accurate – if having female units upsets you that much you can either mod them out or just not play.”

    Janos again: Historically authentic as opposed to historically accurate? What kind of bullshit distinction is that? Authentic as in not the son of a barren women? Or not a square triangle? Who is are their customers? That’s right: Young White Males. They’d rather lose money or go out of business than tell the truth and give their customers what they want.

    The CO2 level is the highest it’s been for a very long time, the oceans are polluted with radioactive materials, chemicals and islands of floating plastic, and the economy has been turned inside out to appear healthy when actually it’s very sick. And what do we spend our time and energy on? Discussing the actions of a typical teenaged boy from 35 years ago.

    Compare this incident with the,actions of a former married, sitting president who had sex with an intern, or another president who used to sneak out of the White House for sexual liaisons with many women.

    America has turned into a crazy, dumb greedy and corrupt nation. Are we going down the tubes? Who knows, but it will take an effort to prevent collapse. Stupidity has alway led to a downfall, whether a person or a culture.

    The Mississippi Delta used to be the richest area in the US. When Grant’s troops marched past Mississippi plantations the slaves literally greeted the Yankees despoiling the countryside in tears as Biblical liberators, like Moses.

    m.youtube.com/watch?v=l-pkSu9ORo0&t=277s

    No one pointed out to the slaves: “You see: The uneducated, poorly-disciplined Yankee troops are raping, pillaging, and despoiling. It’s not going to end well for you in the hands of such people.”

  71. janet September 23, 2018 at 1:03 am #

    “It’s not going to end well for you in the hands of such people.” –Pucker

    And yet it did end well for African-Americans after the Yankees won the traitorous, pro-slavery, failed, confederate insurrection. If you just look at how far African-Americans have advanced under the Yankees, you wouldn’t write such scurrilous patter.

    In 1940, 60 percent of employed black women worked as domestic servants; today the number is down to 2.2 percent, while 60 percent hold white- collar jobs.

    In 1958, 44 percent of whites said they would move if a black family became their next door neighbor; today the figure is 1 percent.

    In 1964, the year the great Civil Rights Act was passed, only 18 percent of whites claimed to have a friend who was black; today 86 percent say they do, while 87 percent of blacks assert they have white friends. Not only is miscegenation increasing, integration has also been successful; a fact that someone reading the posts of racist CFN commenters would never surmise.

    If you only read CFN, you would think blacks are dangerous animals who live in ghettos and travel in gangs. Progress is the largely suppressed story of race and race relations over the past half-century. And thus it’s news that more than 40 percent of African Americans now consider themselves members of the middle class.

    Surprise! African-Americans are not all in ghettos. Forty-two percent own their own homes, a figure that rises to 75 percent if we look just at black married couples. Black two-parent families earn only 13 percent less than those who are white. Almost a third of the black population lives in suburbia.

Why, Mississippi gets back $3 from the Yankees for every $1 it sends to Washington. Mississippi would not be as rich as it is if it weren’t for that yankee generosity.

    No, ding dong, all-gender restrooms do not lead to predatory attacks.

    Those who support policies opposing transgender people from using public facilities like restrooms, locker rooms or changing rooms that coincide with their gender identity argue that, without them, others may be more susceptible to predatory attacks.

    However, a recent UCLA study finds that Massachusetts’ nondiscrimination laws, which include protections for transgender individuals, did not affect the number or frequency of criminal incidents. In fact, “reports of privacy and safety violations in these places are exceedingly rare,” it said.

    The details:

    The study took place in Massachusetts, where some cities have transgender-inclusive public accommodation laws.

    Lead author Amira Hasenbush and her team compared cities and towns that had the laws and in Massachusetts. They also examined police reports of assault and privacy violations in these localities both before and after the laws came into effect.

    There is no evidence that letting transgender people use public restrooms that align with their gender identity increases safety risks.

    The study was done by the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law.

    Ford runs circles around hapless Republicans, who now have a second scandal

    Grassley told her he needed an answer by Friday at 10 a.m. That got pushed to 10 p.m., and then to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

    Katz rightly called these deadlines arbitrary and more importantly knew she had leverage. With Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Jeff Flake of Arizona saying they wanted to hear from Ford before voting, Grassley couldn’t very well cut off discussion.

    He didn’t have the votes to confirm the nominee.

    If Republicans were hoping to intimidate Ford it didn’t work. Rather it revealed that there is a slim chance, more than zero, that Republicans might not have the votes after this next week.

    The ding dong Trump administration is full of liars like KT McFarland who are covering up Trump-Russia collusion.

    The Washington Post noted that McFarland phoned the newspaper on January 13, 2017, and insisted in an on-the-record conversation that Flynn and Kislyak had never discussed sanctions, and stressed that her memory of this was clear.

    But shortly after Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to investigators about his conversation with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about sanctions, McFarland spoke to the special counsel’s office. She had reviewed her notes and documents by then and walked back what she previously said — this time saying that she could infer from a general conversation with Flynn that he had discussed sanctions with Kislyak.

    The Post reported that McFarland and her lawyer were able to sway the FBI that it was not her intent to mislead the agency.

    Right. Ding dong liars. The FBI ought to nail her ass. But the FBI and Mueller are out for bigger fish.

    Back when they were Catholic in other words, When the Orthodox were Catholic to == janos

    Harry Potter, Catholicism and the Fourth Crusade

    My shock from getting acquainted with the Harry Potter films is due to the fact that occult fantasy turned out to be a great work of cinematography (and presumably literature), warning humanity about the very danger that I was about to tell in my theory of Colored Projects, but postponed this sad necessity, fearing some details of this theory could simply drive some of the readers mad.

    And having been confronted with the fact that some powerful organization – and it is crystal clear to me that if Shakespeare could still be Shakespeare, but Mrs. Rolling could not have lifted such a layer of human history all by herself and isolated from it the most vile secret of the Western European civilization, which during the Great Indiction was thoroughly hidden by its best minds, is proving to be developing a multi-billion dollar project, setting itself about the same tasks as me.

    And in all other types of human activity, there are no traces for the existence of such organization, except for awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Barack Obama and the Abel Prize to John Nash. Moreover, from Harry Potter series it follows that, generally speaking, the above warning is addressed to the next generation, in the hope that today’s children, growing up at a critical moment in history will remember their children’s books and films.

    Well, I, refraining from the details, all the same I will tell you about this secret.

    The Fourth Crusade began quite a long time ago, perhaps even during the life of Christ with 32 pieces of silver, but the first specifically military manifestation of this was the victory in 974 of the Red Otto II, Holy Roman Emperor over the Orthodox King of the Danes Harald Bluetooth.

    (and yes, the well known wireless technology is named after him)

    With the Danes, the Red bastard had to tinker quite a bit and it ended badly for him: in 983 Harald Bluetooth was helped by the Slavs and together they threw out the crusaders from Denmark, and in 988 the baptism of Rus made the situation irreversible.

    And even the Massacre in 1002 on St. Brice’s Day could not stop the formation of the Cnut the Great Empire – the grandson of Harold Bluetooth and the son of Sweyn Forkbeard, who was poisoned by the monk of the Edmundsbury monastery after Sweyn questioned the holiness of St. Edmund.

    On the horizon loomed the Orthodox Viking Empire, but the betrayal of the Norman Duke Robert the Devil led to the fact that in 1054 Christianity split, and in 1066 the bastard of Robert the Devil Wilhelm with the help of Pope Alexander II conquered Orthodox England.

    Well, then it went: in 1147, the Reichstag in Frankfurt declares the Orthodox Slavs and Vikings pagans, and the “holy” Bernard of Clairvaux during it added to his merits racial anti-Semitism (in connection with the election of Pope Anacletus II), the blessing of the genocide of the Orthodox Slavs in the course of the Northern Crusade.

    Thus, as early as the 12th century, the leaders of the Black Project combine the Slavs and Jews as an object of extermination for religious reasons.

    And in 1159 the conquered Denmark becomes the main base of the Fourth Crusade and Gauleiter of Denmark Bishop Absalon destroys the largest city in the north of Europe the Orthodox Vineta and then begins to carry out the genocide of Orthodox Slavs and Vikings on the island of Rügen.

    After that, to say that the Crusaders took Constantinople by mistake or that Simon de Montfort went from Croatia to Occitania because he did not want to participate in the assault on Zara, is possible only for money, and very big money.

    And that’s where Harry Potter comes in.

    The fact is that Albigensianism in Languedoc was declared a Manichean heresy by those who burned Orthodox Christians at the stake for asserting the Immaculate Conception of Mary, Mother of God or that the head of the Church is Jesus Christ.

    And in their free time from basic work these people stormed Constantinople and arranged shithouses in the altars of Greek churches.

    At the same time, the Albigensians themselves considered themselves Christians, and from Manichaeism they had only a subdivision of people on the perfecti and profane. But we know from Blessed Augustine that the Manichaeans considered the ability to be a perfecti as a gift from above, incompatible with murder, and sought out such people from infancy, including, in this way, they found the blessed Augustine.

    But the Templars, whose statutes were written by the “holy” Bernard of Clairvaux, considered themselves to be people of the spirit, killing right and left, and they considered their ability to be perfecti as a result of their aristocratic origin.

    Especially it should be noted that during the Crusades in the Middle East, the Templars communicated very closely with the Ismailis and adopted from them what was later described in the film “Eternal Call” as the Dulles Plan.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dulles%27_Plan

    And aristocratic origin is known to be transmitted from one generation of aristocrats to another during sexual intercourse, and this makes one remember that the main conflict in Harry Potter is a conflict between those who believe that magic abilities can be developed at Hogwarts only if they are the result of a good sexually transmitted origin, and those who study at Hogwarts accepts mixed-blooded children born of the marriage of magicians with muggles.

    And this is really important, because within the framework of European esoteric the gifts of God are given to everyone and the Holy Spirit breathes wherever He wants, but the abilities and talents of a demonic character are committed only through sexual intercourse.

    Therefore, the followers of Lord Voldemort do not need the magical half-bloods, because their magical abilities may turn out to be the Gift of God, and it is from this important detail, which very few people pay attention to, that such phenomena as Nazism, which again raised its head, on the pages of Harry Potter, but also in the ruins of Ukraine, as well as in the Valley of the Dead in Afghanistan and in Dura-Europeus, where it actually appeared almost 2,000 years ago

    For those who carefully read this post, it should be clear how radically the present picture of history differs from what can be found in history textbooks written by people on the basis of sources written by the official historiographers of the Fourth Crusade, such as the Saxo Grammaticus.

    At the same time, I want to draw your attention that the facts cited by him are not subject to revision, only the method of their assembling into a single whole has been changed, that is, the perception of history, which in this case is the assertion that Orthodoxy was and conducts its genealogy from Christ and his apostles. But Catholicism was formed as a result of the Great Schism, which itself was not so much the result of the Filioque, but a result of the efforts of the Black Project undertaken over several centuries

Well, the British have all taken it personally, and it seemed particularly humiliating that Angela Merkel used the laws of the European Union and instructed Poland to say it, which Churchill called the Hyena of Europe.

    Further you understand…

    And that goes well with the choice between the two hurricanes that I wrote about when the biggest hurricane in the history of hurricanes, Hurricane Florence, was approaching the coast of the United States as a choice that the Higher Powers put before the people of the United States, but as it turned out as a result of shooting down of the Russian IL-20, they put this choice before all mankind, and first of all before the peoples of Russia.

    And now I need to start analyzing in detail the minute layout of the IL-20 disaster, the failure of the mission of Theresa May as a sleeping agent of the European Union, the world government, Nazi Germany or the Islamic State, as well as the events with the announcement of Hillary Clinton War on Russia in an interview with Stephen Colbert and on page 407 of her book and also at the 4:16 mark of this video:

      I haven’t taken it personally. Like vast numbers of other rational people, I knew it wouldn’t work long before the Maybot went to the EU with it. She was warned.

      Incidentally, what is your specific proposal for the conundrum of the Irish/Northern Irish border, Finca? One that keeps everyone happy and not shooting or bombing, including the Rottweiler leading the DUP who was paid £10m for her cronies to support May in the House of Commons?

    Bloomberg is running for president in 2020! He would be the first confirmed Billionaire president because he will release his tax returns to prove he is not a millionaire with a history of bankruptcies and debts. Bloomberg is not a Russian covert agent colluding with Russian intelligence to undermine democracy. Bloomberg does not have a history of pussy grabbing (which is sexual assault), or prostitutes or golden showers. Bloomberg is pro-choice and pro-women.

    The people of the USA are screwed. The Federal government is about to take total power over everything that we do. Individual liberty is dying on the vine as individual responsibility declines to zero. The shame though belongs to the people, who are racing to the “Finished Line” like shrews being driven by the Left. I cannot believe the BS I am hearing, the Dems have convinced a majority that the tax cuts are bad??? That females are always pristine and never lie,, that one of the best judges of this generation is not worthy, if the Dems do as well as the polls say, it proves how gullible and stupid the American people are and that they do not deserve the gifts of liberty that have been given to them by the Founding Fathers. All the illegals, and darker people can have what will be left of this country. It will be interesting where the elite goes to escape the debacle that is coming. The great American experiment is dying quickly now. And like all prior civilization experiments, dying by its own hands. Watch the capital flow when Trunpism is defeated this fall.

      Shift the paradigm of workplace culture. From what to what. Whatever they want is what!

      Sorry to have to point this out to you then.

      Not a single identified victim can be identified. Not only that a specific category or type of abuse also can’t be pinpointed. This is the mark of zealotry out of control. Without names and specifics, accusations of wrongdoing in a general sense are nothing but virtue signals to identify tribe members in an experssion of a pathological ideology.

      Have to explain the hate to you suggests that you are empathically challenged. General non-specific crimes are assigned to another social group of tribe non-members and the tribe members doing the hating and accusing are getting their jollies from it.

      Meaning from life resulting from the suffering of another is a manifestation of hate. Schadenfreude is the experience of pleasure, joy, or self-satisfaction that comes from learning of or witnessing the troubles, failures, or humiliation of another but that is specific to the feeling and does not address cause. When the one enjoying is the one causing the suffering and humiliation hate is involved.

      The socially pedantic attitude allows such hate to be justified under certain circumstances (child molesters) but that is a rationalization which indulges victim-hood. You might begin to start to understand all this by reading ‘Lord of the Flies’. This might also help you if such a thing is possible.

This liberal country wants everything handed to them, no effort required. When you are talking about fiscal responsibility, don’t. Dems do not understand the concept. Their motivation of acquiring power is to buy it with debt. Not a good discussion subject for you Janet. At least with the tax cuts the money went into the market, with its retirement contingent, bonuses for a while, expanding businesses with the increase in jobs that accompanies it. Do not give anything to the government who wastes, extorts, warmongers, pays itself exorbitant wages and pensions, and many other forms of evil.

    “The courage of survivors will always be stronger than Donald Trump’s hate. The lives of survivors will always be more important than Brett Kavanaugh’s career.

    When I was sexually assaulted, I wasn’t that much older than Christine Blasey Ford — now a PhD in psychology — was when she was allegedly assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh (Kavanaugh denies the incident occurred). I’ve watched, horrified as politicians and pundits refused to believe or take seriously these allegations.

    Then, on Friday morning, President Trump tweeted that if Ford’s words were true, she would have filed a report with local law enforcement years ago. This statement chilled me to my core.

    Far too many of us know that what President Trump said is simply not true. Victims of sexual assault often don’t report what happened because they know all too well that our stories are rarely taken seriously or believed — and that when it comes to sexual misconduct, our justice system is broken. Now, we are seeing our worst nightmares realized when we see the disbelief, pushback, hate, and death threats Ford is receiving just because she had the courage to speak up.

    It took me years after my assault to voice the experience to my closest friends. It took me three decades to tell my parents that the assault had even happened. I never filed a police report. I never told officials. I never tried to find justice for my pain because justice was never an option.

    For me, speaking up meant reliving one of the worst moments of my life. It meant recognizing my attacker’s existence when I wanted nothing more than to forget that he was allowed to walk on this Earth at all. This is what every survivor goes through. Telling our stories means being vulnerable to public attacks and ridicule when our only “crime” was to be assaulted in the first place.” –Alyssa Milano

      The following women also gave deep painful heartfelt testimonies of their terrible rape ordeals—that never happened…

      Girl made false accusation of rape after her ex-boyfriend rejected her

      So what’s your point? The only “pushback” here is that politically-motivated liberals want to convict Kavanaugh with a mere allegation.

While in prison, they could learn some vocation that wouldn’t require speech and be well fitted for their new lives once they leave.

And don’t buy what the fake progressives are selling! Lots of women in this country want men to succeed but you’re not going to hear it in the mainstream.

          • K-Dog September 23, 2018 at 7:23 pm #

            I think the procedure is to tie Christine Blasey Ford up and through her into a pond.

            If she sinks and drowns she is not a witch and must be believed. Kavanaugh does not get the job.

            If she floats we know she is a witch and the normal procedure is to pull her out and burn her at the stake. Kavanaugh gets the job.

    The Dulles Plan

    The “plan”, written in the form of a villain’s exposition, describes how the [United States] will destroy the [Soviet (Russian)] people from within by means of a “fifth column” seeking to corrupt basic cultural values of the [Soviet] society.

    This is to be accomplished by subverting the carriers of this culture (literature, theaters and cinema) to promote violence, depravity and other vices.

    In addition, these agents will work to plunge the governmental structure into chaos, bureaucracy and corruption, as well as sow nationalism, ethnic hatred and mistrust among the general populace.

    A sidebar to all this discussion. The GOP is the most incompetent political group in the history of this country. Also, the most cowardly. The Dems, as much as this hurts to say, are much superior politicians and Deep Staters than the GOP. The handling of the Ford legal team by Grassley this week was a supreme example of their incompetence. I can see national Dem conferences laughing their butts off at the GOP. Two years controlling both houses of congress, and the presidency and the only significant change has been the tax law change. Which, by the way, the Dems have turned around and duped the public into thinking was a bad thing. Think about that, convincing the public that higher taxes are a good thing. The GOP should be ashamed. And I am ashamed at my votes for two of the worst, McCain and Flake.

    • FincaInTheMountains September 23, 2018 at 3:28 pm #

      I think, John, you’re making a mistake forgetting that bipartisan political system in US have ceased to exist, receiving a mortal blow during the presidential campaign of 1992 when Hillary Clinton used as a spoiler Ross Perot to steal 20% of Republican votes, and culminating in 2012 presidential campaign when Bill Clinton actively called democrats to vote for “republican” Mitt Romney. And don’t forget that the most rabid Clintonoid used to be “republican” senator McCain.

      Democratic Party has to restore its distinct political philosophy and adopt some positive, constructive platform before things could return to the normalcy of the Jeffersonian Democracy and two opposing political parties.

    Recognize the crisis as a crisis

    Get out as much information as possible as soon as possible, particularly any negative information

    Avoid saying anything that has to be withdrawn

    Avoid doing anything that looks like a cover-up

    Ford wants the FBI to investigate. Kavanaugh doesn’t.

Its Sunday edition (today) is another stunning example of what contemporary print journalism is capable of achieving. The purchase price is well worth it.

          Notable today, along with always great Book Review is the Voyages edition of the sunday Magazine. It a photo log from all over the world meant to be accompanied by audio:

          “According to the Department of Education, during the 2013-14 school year, more than 110,000 American students, disproportionately black, were subjected to corporal punishment.”

          In 1997, the Supreme court decision, Ingraham v. Wright, upheld corporal punishment.

          A further challenged in 2008.

          “In San Antonio in 2004, an 18-year old charter school student left her campus to purchase a breakfast burrito. When she returned, on time, for her first-period class, the principal, a man in his early thirties, told her she had violated the school’s closed-campus rule. She was restrained and beaten with four-foot-long wooden paddle nicknamed ‘Ole Thunder’. She bled and later visited an emergency room.”

          The court declined to hear the case, upholding Ingraham v. Wright.

            Crikey. I started teaching in 1984 – corporal punishment in schools had just been pretty much stopped in all education authorities before I started, and was legislated out of existence in 1987.

            As for the 18-year-old girl being ‘paddled’, I understand there are very popular porn sites where men who like that sort of thing can go. They should leave genuine schoolgirls out of their grotesque fantasies.

          Yes, exscotticus was so confident three weeks ago. He proudly predicted the immediate confirmation of Kavanaugh and said the Dems could do nothing about it because the Republicans had the majority.

          Now the Republicans are negotiating, have postponed the vote several times, and are in danger of changing midterm election outcomes with their bad behavior, especially if Kavanaugh’s confirmation is rammed through in a way that alienates suburban Republican women.

          Three weeks ago exscotticus was haughty and arrogant and certain. Now nobody can even say with certainty when, or if, a vote will be taken, or whether a forced confirmation will affect midterm election votes to favor electing Democrats, even “socialist” Democrats who favor open borders!

Mueller now has the cooperation of witnesses to Trump’s crimes, people who were very close to Trump and his family, for a very long time, people who know exactly where the bodies are buried, people who know how Trump has broken and continues breaking laws, people who managed Trump’s finances, people who managed Trump’s cover-ups, people who minimized the damage from Trump’s fuckups. Trump is toast.

        Oh right, the witch hunt. Trump’s only crime was becoming President. The elites still can’t move on.

    THURSDAY HEARING MIGHT BE CANCELLED

    Now other women are starting to come forward to share what kind of person Kavanaugh is. Kavanaugh took down his pants and exposed his penis to women at parties.

    New Yorker magazine has reported that Debbie Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Yale University, said he exposed himself at a party when they were both first-year students.

    “I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh,” –Diane Feinstein, in a letter to Sen. Charles E. Grassley, the committee’s GOP chairman.

    As more and more women have the courage to share what Kavanaugh has done to them, more and more women voters will be disgusted with the idea of Kavanaugh becoming a Supreme Court Justice. That disgust, among both Republican and Democratic women voters, will be reflected in about a month in the midterm elections.

      Fake news and unsubstantiated claims :-p. We have due process and allegations must be proven with evidence. You seem happy to convict without evidence. It’s a turn off.

      • janet September 23, 2018 at 10:29 pm #

        Evidence is the reason for investigations. Republicans do not want any investigations by FBI (they might turn up evidence!)

        • hmuller September 23, 2018 at 11:42 pm #

          Yes, the FBI has such a splendid track record for pursuing truth and justice. NOT!! It’s an agency riddled with globalist, Luciferian haters of humanity cut from the same cloth as yourself, dear Janet.

      In some states early voting for the midterm elections has already started. As of January 30, 2018, 34 states and the District of Columbia permitted no-excuse early voting. Another three states utilize all-mail voting systems, eliminating the need for early voting.

      Early voting opportunities make the voting process more convenient for citizens, thereby increasing turnout and diversifying the electorate. Diversity rules. Diversity is strength. The diversity of demographic trends will determine who will win in the midterm elections.

      She [Deborah Ramirez] recalled another male student shouting about the incident. “Somebody yelled down the hall, ‘Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face,’ ” she said. “It was his full name. I don’t think it was just ‘Brett.’

      So someone who knew both Brett and Debbie used Brett’s first AND last name, but only Debbie’s first name? Does that sound plausible?

      If you were at a party, and someone you and everyone else knew did this, would you shout out their entire name? And if you didn’t know them, then how would you know their full name to shout out?

      “Hey everyone! Look! Over there! It’s Brett Kavanaugh repeat Brett, that’s B-R-E-T-T Kavanaugh, that’s K-A-V-A-N-A-U-G-H, trying to assault a woman with his penis, and his social security number is…”

      And if it did happen, then there should be a busload of witnesses both male and female, both Republican and Democrat, both conservative and liberal. A guy whips out his penis at a party, repeatedly thrusts it into a woman’s face, and only one person remembers it? NOT POSSIBLE.

      Recall that the original allegation involved an upstairs bedroom, seclusion, and a party in which there was only four drunk older guys and a 15-year-old wearing a bathing suite.

      But this new allegation is the very definition of in flagrante delicto.

      She recalled remarking, “That’s not a real penis,” and the other students laughing at her confusion and taunting her, one encouraging her to “kiss it.”

      Key words: and the other students. So let them come forward and corroborate.

    In her letter, Feinstein asked “that the newest [Debbie Ramirez] allegations of [Kavanaugh’s] sexual misconduct be referred to the FBI for investigation, and that you join our request for the White House to direct the FBI to investigate the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford as well as these new claims.”

  97. janet September 23, 2018 at 10:54 pm #

    then there should be a busload of witnesses both male and female, both Republican and Democrat, both conservative and liberal. –exscotticus

    Exactly! That is why it is of utmost importance for the FBI to investigate and take statements from those witnesses… or throw Debbie Ramirez in jail if she lies to FBI agents. But an investigation is necessary or this becomes a kangaroo hearing.

  98. janet September 23, 2018 at 10:57 pm #

    and a 15-year-old wearing a bathing suit –exscotticus

    Under her clothes. She was wearing a bathing suit under her clothes. These claims, all of the claims from all of the women coming forward to besmirch Kavanaugh’s reputation… all the claims need to be investigated by the FBI, as Feinstein has requested.

    • SoftStarLight September 23, 2018 at 11:06 pm #

      And the allegations of Keith Ellison’s accusers deserve FBI investigations immediately. I am sure you agree!

    • Exscotticus September 23, 2018 at 11:13 pm #

      Why was she wearing a bathing suite under her clothes? Stands to reason that she was ready to slip out of her clothes into a watery environment, yes? Or she had just come from a watery environment. Either way, too bad Dr. Ford can’t remember any details to shed some light on why she was at a party all alone—wholesome girl that she was—partying with four drunk older guys, with her bathing suite in tow…

    Why won’t Republicans permit an investigation? Afraid evidence might be uncovered harmful to Kavanaugh? Want to ram through the confirmation without an investigation and take your chances at the ballot box? Good luck!

    A goal of drinking 100 beer kegs by the end of senior year. A party with a stripper. A student falling through ceilings at house parties. These are new details coming to light in Mark Judge’s descriptions of his days as a Georgetown Prep student.

    One of Brett Kavanaugh’s close friends during his early years, Mark Judge, has come under scrutiny for his descriptions of his party-hearty high school days at Georgetown Prep, the elite school that Judge and Kavanaugh attended just outside Washington, DC. All the claims of Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct need to be investigated by the FBI, as Feinstein has requested. That includes putting Mark Judge under oath.

      Why didn’t Fecesstein go to the FBI herself?

      She’s a big powerful senator?

      Why did she sit on the complaint with her big fats ass for 6 weeks until it was time for a vote?

      This is a high tech lynching of an uppity white man.

      Yes, but those are just corroborating facts. Conservatives don’t care about those.

    In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and three other classmates, Dino Ewing, Louisa Garry, and Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: “We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett’s Supreme Court nomination was pending.

    • So – it was a drunken orgy, and not “a party”. Got it.

      Brett soldiers on in his quest to don rubber robes with all-powerful Nine and adjudicate, dispassionately, questions of vaginal, and national, authority.

      Some things are more important than family. Wives. Daughters. You, and Me.

      Its that sacred wooden hammer.

      With it he will be able to maniacally pound on the bench, spittle flying, and lay siege to vast numbers of vaginas.

      Every day he’ll walk past that blindfolded femme warrior and mentally tweak that marble nipple.

      From the looks of it, Ramirez is “taking a hit for the team.” Based on the assertions of Kavanaugh’s college associates, it seems highly unlikely that her accusations will stand. But what will stand is the smear against Kavanaugh. So, my guess is that Ramirez is willing to sully her own reputation (by association with a vulgar, base, event) in order to smear Kavanaugh. Why would a person do this? Simple. She’s racking up points for when “they” take over. She figures she’ll get her payback then. This just goes to show how low some people will go to gain a little advantage.

    “It couldn’t be more firmly established that she doesn’t remember what year or what place the alleged necking happened in.”

    Very disappointed to see that Jim has joined the ranks of (attempted) rape apologists. Yes, attempted rape, not some innocuous teenaged “necking” as Jim inaccurately chooses to distort it. I imagine if the shoe were on the other foot and it was a democratic nominee facing the same accusations (which itself is funny, since democratic nominees never even get a hearing under Mitch McConnell), Jim would be demanding he immediately withdraw and be replaced.

    But, hey, republicans get to play by different set of rules.

    Oh, and by the way, there are two more accusers (apparently from Kavanaugh’s college days) who have come forward since last week. But I’m sure they’re both Soros paid liars, right?

    The Good Old Boys network still firmly entrenched as always.
