Mark Judge, the guy who was with Kava-Aww-Nawww in the room when he assaulted Dr. Ford, refuses to testify under oath.
In another alt-right association, Mark Judge was a contributor for the Daily Caller and has a long history with Chuck C. Johnson.
He is part of the alt-right propaganda machine. These slimy bastards are all connected and have been plotting for years. DISGUSTING!

It needs to be noted that Trump would be directing the full force of the FBI and a spectrum of law enforcement and security agencies, and Grassley the same with Senate investigators, to investigate what Kavanaugh allegedly did to Ford, if they thought it would exonerate Kavanaugh. . Bookman’s column in today’s AJC makes a point: . “From the beginning, my chief concern with Kavanaugh has been temperament, not ideology.” … “[M}y concern with Kavanaugh has been the role he played as top assistant to Ken Starr in the Clinton investigations. Documents from that era depict a partisan fanatic, eager… Read more »

David Brock said he was in the same “training” class with Kavanaugh and that Kavanaugh is vile. Kavanaugh tortured the poor family of Vince Foster and put them through heck. He is a sick individual and the more you find out about him the more Dr. Ford is believable.

We’re all supposed to receive a test “Presidential advisory” text on our phones 03 Oct.

Yeah, an advisory from a dirtbag that puts himself ahead of everything else and doesn’t know the difference between 16 and a thousand deaths is providing information you’re supposed to rely on for your safety. MAGA.

Hurricane warnings should come from NOAA or something. Why would anyone think that needed to come from the president? The only thing that MIGHT justify a message from the president would be a nuclear attack, and even then it would be better coming from Homeland Security or the Air Force.
Trump is the absolute epitome of why it shouldn’t come from the president: He’s too political, he doesn’t care about the repercussions of what he does, and every single thing he does he makes it about himself. Not the type you want handling an alert system.

Dave, no one has to release their tax returns. Why in the hell should he? To listen to you and others snivel about taking a deduction for his used underwear and condoms like Clinton?

Why don’t you focus on something worthwhile. Like making up crap like the rest of the libs.

bethebalance

You seem to continue to make good use of Clinton’s tax returns.
Plus- folks want to see if he’s lying about a whole range of things, or committing crimes, etc. Much more interesting than underwear.
But we can just presume he lied on his tax returns because he already lied about disclosing them. That’s the price you pay for the failure to present evidence.
Promises, promises….

Go ahead and assume he lied! I’m sure the IRS And their unbiased investigators never audited him!

No one has to but they do it anyway so that the questions can be cleared up. If they don’t release them the questions never end and it appears that they are hiding something. So the question really should be: Why shouldn’t he release them?
.
At this point it doesn’t matter if he releases them or not. I’m pretty sure Mueller has them and your best hope is that Trump goes ahead and pardons himself from all the illegal crap they are finding in there, because once he’s out of office it will be too late.
C’est la vie.

It’s been reported that Mueller does have his tax returns. Mueller got Manafort’s so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that he has Trump’s.

And he probably can’t pardon himself but I would laugh if he did. He can’t get away from all the state crimes he’s committed with a pardon. Remember Mueller has everything, all the text messaging, all the emails, the bank statements, tax returnsm ohone records, everything.

Just an fyi, there is a bill just introduced I believe, to require disclosure, along with other ethics reforms.

You need a better news source. Do you realize that some states are making laws that you have to release your tax return to be on the ballot?

If Clinton is being appointed to a federal position or as a federal judge, it is the FBI who runs backgrounds (but not if your elected,). Otherwise it falls under state hands. It’s that whole 10th amendment thing. If it was legal to do so; or he committed a federal crime sexual/assult crime, of course.

Note – no one has ever thought of appointing him to a federal position… cause he would never base a FBI background check.

Ivanka is saying that Trump should just cut Kavanaugh loose. So we’ll see what he does. Tweety made the comment that this would be the 2nd time the GOP puts a sexual predator on the supreme court if they put Kavanaugh on it. So that would be 2 out of 7. If you want to completely destroy the credibilty of the supreme court the GOP is doing a great job.

Conservatives need to learn that repeating a lie over and over won’t make it into the truth not will it make it factual. You certainly are an apostle of the Big Lie. No, the trial balloons are from the GOP who are in a panic as to what to do about Kavanaugh.

Don’t forget about some of the overt misogyny, and the singular focus on insult with a complete lack of content. As an example, say the Women’s March is being discussed. DTM will insist it reflect pre-inauguration desires for impeachment. ACP, you have corrected him multiple times abt the timing of the March. But there is actually more to it that can be discussed. Certainly there’s more to it than insulting Caroline and all women about womens’ “places”.

I think, like the kneeling football players protest, they just don’t want to see it on TV. TV is like their ‘safe space’. They have to ridicule it because they can’t/won’t do street protests themselves, and it impinges the notion they have that there are only about 19 actual liberals out there (so all the rest must be being paid by George Soros). There is probably something about a paternalistic ‘behaving yourself in public’ thing going on too.

Well, emotionally, conservative by definition means there is a preference for the past, or status quo, or for slow(ed) change. Being a liberal means you are more willing to risk change in furtherance of individuals’ freedom. So, really any change— i.e. any passage of time– can invoke a conservative reflex to not change. In a conservative world, change just happens on its own, I guess. Or change is unnecessary. I understand the instinct for measure and moderation, but if you’re not growing, you’re dying. Maybe that’s why some folks get more conservative in their older years- it’s just too much… Read more »

So, release all this redacted national security info, but restrict the hearing for Kav to two witnesses only, on one day only.
There is good reason to protect the national security info. There is no good reason to not fully investigate the allegations against Kav. Just do the due diligence. If she’s lying or it can’t be corroborated then so be it. But at least try to find out. Or else it looks like:

WOW!

“Denise Mueller-Korenek, it is fair to say, is not most people.

The US woman reached an eye-watering average speed of 183.932 mph (296.010 km/h) – on a bicycle.

The remarkable speed means the 45-year-old not only smashed her own world record, but the long-standing men’s one as well.

Her reaction? Somewhat understated.

“It was a crazy wild ride to 183.9 mph, but so worth the sacrifice and years of focus on becoming the fastest human on a bicycle in the world,” Mueller-Korenek said.

“We weren’t supposed to go more than 175.””

I was reading this story that intergrates the theme of the authors up coming book. I think the author interviewed Downthemiddle. She describes his attitude to a tee. DTM should read the link. It enforces every liberal feminist pink cat ear hat fantasy he could imagine.

“…. it continues to be written off as loudmouthed hysteria, or the dubious ravings of pussy-hatted suburbanites with itchy Etsy trigger fingers.”

I don’t get the obsession with the women’s march. The only thing I can figure is it makes them mad that women were not home cooking. I mean the women I know who actually marched in the women’s march moved onto talking about other things pretty soon after the march. I guess it’s their authoritarianism over women.

I think Republicans just don’t do street protests very well. Charlottesville, the ‘Get a brain morans” guy. For a respectable Republican street protest would the men need to wear khakis and polo shirts, or suits? And the women wear dresses? Only exception would be American flag clothing?
Anyway, so maybe it’s jealousy. Because protesting every friggin’ thing on internet chat rooms seems to be OK.
