The rather odious stuff of the past week or so has been met with a very stern response by Senator Chuck Grassley, the Chairman of the Senate Committee debating the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This is following the inability to reach agreements with attorneys representing a lady accusing the nominee of sexual assault as a teenager.

One thing about politics, when I think it can't get much nastier, it seems to.

I wonder if there ever was an intention of the accuser testifying under oath. We will see where this goes. As of now, the vote on Kavanaugh, up or down, is scheduled for Monday. Sen. Grassley seems to have had enough of the current kerfluffle.

DavidE,

Inasmuch as EVERY DIMocRAT senator & all but 2 GOP members have already announced that their minds are made up, WHAT is the point of another question/answer session?? = I don't get it.

STOP wasting time/money, VOTE & let the chips fall as they may on MONDAY or TUESDAY.

Per the daily fish wrap, the offer for her to testify is still open, her attorney's haven't replied to the last message. This was, per MSM, "We'd like a female attorney (Judiciary staff?) to question the witness, the witness will testify on Wednesday and she will go first." Essentially a put up or shut up with an offer for security.

Perhaps Monday is the vote to continue without her? Anguished screams of outrage from the usual suspects.

William R Moore,

IF Ms. Ford is cross-examined by a SMART/TOUGH female prosecutor and she actually admitted that the alleged incident NEVER HAPPENED, the MORON LEFT & the "mainstream media" would still carp, whine, complain, howl & whimper about, "How utterly unfair that it to question the veracity of any female victim".

Btw, I've asked Darla & several of her GF about "the alleged incident" & almost all of the ladies said that Ms. Ford is LYING. = ImVho, I believe that the DIMs have, once more, "overplayed their hand".

Personally, I think that the committee/senate should just vote UP/DOWN & without further delay.

yours, sw

I am guessing that this is just to tar the court and to whip up the Left wing base for the midterms.

I just watched about 15 minutes of MSNBC, and they were talking about unfair deadlines, a rush to confirm a confirmed assaulter, and how this is proof that evangelicals and republicans hate women and want them assaulted.

It's a joke.

I am reminded, in a way, of something James Carville once said. If a party or candidate is only concerned with firing up their base, they are in trouble. You need more than that base to win nationally. I hope that is correct here, they have crossed a very serious bridge. Of course, they have been crossing those for years.

This is worth a read:

I never liked Senator Feinstein but with her attempt to bork Judge Kavanaugh stinks. Chappaquiddick Ted pulled the same crap when Justice Thomas nomination was being considered by the Senate.

There's information going about that the family of the "victim" has an axe to grind with the nominees mother, who ruled against them in a civil case.

Now about the alleged victim....if a non-driving teen was riding with others, she might not actually know exactly where the alleged incident took place. Beyond that, what we appear to have here is political theater-or maybe psycho-sexual theater twisted to political purposes. OK, such incidents do go under reported. That said, that still doesn't make every complaint automatically true. Just ask any member of the Duke Lacrosse Team. While there's a natural tendency to be at least somewhat sympathetic to the AV, one has to wonder about her thought (?) processes. Anyone really believing they could provide that type of information to a politician/news person (is there a difference?) and remain unidentified obviously has some issues.

SW, there won't be a Perry Mason minute on the stand. I'd take either side of a bet that she'll never testify, citing the unfair/sexist/ bias of the old white male deplorables on the committee.

There was an interesting article about how much Ruth Bader Ginsberg deplores how the judicial confirmations have become so politicized.

Well No Balls Grassley has indicated that now Thursday is the day with details too still be worked out?I thought Thursday was the point of no return that day is a kill for the vote according to Senate rules.:dunno:

From the American Thinker how respectful we are when they hold the power :

Nominees are usually confirmed without much fanfare, even those who are ideologically out of the mainstream, such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, confirmed 96-3. Barack Obama's two nominees were confirmed, but by a closer margin, Elena Kagan 63-37 and Sonia Sotomayor 68-31.

I say let the hearings go forth, and let the cards fall where they fall. If he's a letch, then he's not whom we want on the court. If it's complete BS like it was with Thomas, then let's make sure the Democrats pay a heavy price...IMO they didn't pay nearly enough with the Thomas BS.

GunGeek,

Have you NOT "gotten it" YET?? = The accusations are a pack of LIES, out of the dirty tricks department of the DNC.
(ALL that I wonder is how much did Ms. Ford GET PAID??)

Tonight about 1800, TWO more women "came forward", who CLAIM that they were "molested by" Judge Kavanaugh when he was an undergrad. = I hate to say to everyone, "I told you so". Nonetheless I did last week.

yours, sw

I call BS same MO "I was drunk" " I really do not remember it all" and then this

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels, on Sunday alleged that he had knowledge that Kavanaugh and high school friend Mark Judge targeted women with drugs and alcohol in order to "allow a 'train' of men to subsequently gang rape them."

Really and Again no PR to back it up :dunno: The PD is not involved the women do not remember and the only other male pick out is Judge?BS!!!!

Senator Feinstein has been involved in all three smears by the Democrats; first Judge Bork then Thomas and now Judge Kavanaugh.

Maybe that's why she was too busy to notice that she had a Red Chinese spy on her payroll for 20 years.

The funny part is Feinstein is in trouble with her increasingly Leftist district.
Turns out, to her shock, she's not Lefty enough.

This is something that people are often surprised to see when a lefty is suddenly not Lefty enough.
The situation is this...... The one thing the Left is better at then anyone is infiltrating and taking over an organization from the inside then purging everyone else.

In the 1920's and 30's the big city mayors and union bosses got a good look at the Communist Left, so they drove the Left out of the Democrat party and kept them out.
That is, until the 60's when McGovern decided to open up the party to "the people" and end the old smoke filled room brand of politics where the party bosses decided who'd run.

He opened the party and the hard Left poured in, and began what they do best.
It starts with the Left getting a foot in the door, then begin taking over.
At first they just make certain to attend all meetings and vote in a block to get what they want.
Most other people don't block vote and often have what they think is more important business then attending some boring meeting.

Since the Left show up and stick together they soon start voting themselves into key positions.
As they gain power they start moving obstacle people out of the way by giving them lateral moves into positions that are out of the way, or give them promotions into positions that sound good but have no real power to interfere with the Left.
It's common for people in very high positions in an organization who never realize that they're really nothing but figureheads.

As time passes and the Left gain more authority and power to direct the organization, people who are not one of them find themselves moved out of the organization either by putting them in a position where they feel they have to resign, or by simply kicking them out.

As we've recently seen, a person can start a company and build it to great wealth, only to say something the real powers don't like, and find himself kicked out of his own company that he built.

Once the Left has the power they simply force people out by whatever means.
A classic is Joe Lieberman.
He wasn't a proper True Believer, so one year he's a highly respected power in the party and the party candidate for Vice President, and two years later he finds himself booted out of the party.

What many who consider themselves good Leftists sudden realize with shock is that they aren't True Believers enough.
Such is Di-Fi.
She's was a power in California and US politics since the 60's, but never suspected that there was another level of Leftist hidden from view that was working themselves up the organization.

These are the ultimate True Believers.
Once they get sufficient power they begin yet another purge, this time of the not True enough Believers.
Di-Fi is now on the to be purged list to clear the way for the inner circle of True Believers.
These are the real hard core Leftists and the ones we need to really worry about.
These are the groups that are very willing to use whatever means necessary to get power and keep it.
In less stable countries, that includes the usual gulags, midnight arrests, "People's Courts", and basement shootings.

The final purge is when the ultimate True Believers begin purging each other.
All this was amply illustrated in the Soviet Union's early days.
The Communist Left actually usurped the revolution because, while they were a very small group, they were the most ruthless and willing to use any technique to get power.
Once they had power they began purging everyone else. Then they purged their own who might be in the way of the inner circle, ending up with Stalin murdering even his own family because they might be a threat.

Di-Fi just discovered that she's not really one of the inner circle like she thought and is fighting to hold on to her seat and power by playing to the new hard Left in California by trashing Kavanaugh with smears.

I'm sure she feels at least some regret at what she's doing to Kavanaugh, the Senate, and America, but power is power and like a true Lefty, the ends do justify the means.
I'm sure shame doesn't even occur to her, it never does when a Lefties power is threatened.

Be certain; These people lust after power and will do anything to get it and keep it.
Right now all the havoc you're seeing from the Left is like taking an addicts heroin away from them. They'll do anything, no matter how low or disgusting to get it back.
For some people it's lust for money, sex, or drugs. For the Democrat party it's raw power.
That's why they're attacking Trump with everything they have. He's a threat to their power and they'll do anything to stop him.

The American hard Left has successfully made their Long March through the entertainment industry, education now down to a kindergarten level, and popular culture. Now they're infiltrating even sports and any other institution
that can be used.
Politics has always been a prime target along with the mechanisms of the government bureaucracy.
That's how you wind up with a corrupt Justice department and FBI.

They were closing in for the kill until unexpectedly the American people began to revolt and push back with Trump.
The mistake the Left made was to think they had it all nailed down and we were beaten down enough not to talk back to our betters.

We're now entering a time of great peril to the Republic.
The left will fight back like rabid animals to stop us from tearing down all they've spent 100 years building in America.
They understand the stakes, even if most ordinary Americans don't.

Win or lose this November I expect increasing and open violence from the Left to try to intimidate anyone standing against them.
This will not happen in middle America were people are reasonable (and armed), but will be in the large cities and areas were there are colleges that can be used as battlegrounds and safe houses for them.

Be prepared for anything, and above ALL....TALK BACK. Don't let them cow you with social media or charges of racism or any other "isms".
Remember that these people are cowards.... moral and physical.
They can only face you when it's a mob against one person.
If you stand tall and are prepared to defend yourself verbally or otherwise they're like vampires facing the sun.

VOTE like your very life depends on it...... because the life of America does.

I sense that Lucy is about to yank the Kavanaugh derailment football away from the kooks.

Fake scandals just don't have the power they once did.

I hope you're right, Walt. I heard a bit of Limbaugh in a news clip and I think his' spot on. If they don't get Kavanaugh on the Court they can kiss the mid-terms goodbye as well as the House and Senate.

With good reason.
The rubes have wised up and seen the trick.
The old RINO Repubs had it easy. All they had to do was come home during elections and tell the voters all about what tough guys they were and how they were going to fight the Dims tooth and nail.
In truth, once back in Washington it's "My good friends across the aisle", and out to dinner and drinks in their favorite water holes.

Truth is, many of the RINOS actually much prefer being in the minority.
They don't have to do anything but talk a good game and sound tough to the rubes at home.
They collect their pay and obscene retirement benefits, and get all the prestige and bowing from the other DC swamp dwellers.
Not only do they not do anything we want, they actually work against us with the lobbyists and Chamber of Commerce types to give them what they want, which is tax breaks and cheap immigrant labor.

Their trouble is, unexpectedly we gave them the power and now we expect them to deliver what was promised for so many years.
Now the spotlight is on them and there's no where to hide.
Now we expect them to produce as promised.

Possibly they intend to throw the power away so they can go back to the good old days of not having to do anything.
The problem there is, it ain't the good old days.
The good old days were the days middle America had good jobs and a good life earned by hard work.

That's over now and the Deplorables are fed up with being ignored and are demanding action.
If they fail to deliver on Kavenaugh the jig is up and it isn't going to go back to making promises every election.
This time they're going to be OUT, and I think most of them know it.

Like the Dims, the Repubs also lust after power and don't want to loose it.
The difference is, the Repubs just like the prestige and perks that come with power.
The Dims want to USE the power to "fundamentally change the country" into a Socialist hell hole none of us would recognize.

People often don't understand why the Left wants to destroy the most free and fair country in world history.
They wonder how people like the Rosenberg's could sell out America's secrets to a monster like Stalin.

The reason they do this is because America isn't a perfect paradise.
Religious people believe in a paradise after death.
Lead a good and decent life and when you die you go to paradise.

The Left believe in a paradise of the future.
That's a future where America is perfect. No racism, everyone totally equal, no poor, no rich, justice for all.
Since America is not perfect now, there's no reason to be loyal to it since it's imperfect and therefore not worth loyalty.
It should be torn down so it can be replaced with their perfect paradise.
That excuses a lot.

Our problem right now is that we were too busy working, building, and taking care of our families.
We failed to notice or do anything about the Left's Great March through all our institutions and traditions.
Now about half of the country is either active leftists or useful fools who'll go along with the hard core.
More people are taking then earning and paying taxes.
They get to vote just like we do and have excellent reasons to elect the left.
Too many of us are still asleep at the wheel to notice that the mob is closing in on complete control.
No one seems to notice that they're turning our own children against us.

We all better wake up and get our heads UP.
The Left is perilously close to being able to take complete control, and if they do, they'll make sure we'll never be able to vote them out.
It'll be one man, one vote, one time and never again.
Oh, there'll still be elections but we'll have no real choices and nothing will ever change.

Personally, I'm an old guy now and probably won't have to see it, but I still don't want my beloved America turned into another stinking "People's Republic".
This time there's no frontier to escape to.
