Y’all remember when Ol’ Noway said TGM would begin to ask his supporters to “promise” to vote in November? Wellllllll…that verbiage began, for the first time, last night in Vegas. After he asked, absolute pandemonium broke out as the crowd answered in the affirmative! A woman holding a pink “Women for Trump” sign was shown to have tears streaming down her face! Ummmm…I think I’ll just abbreviate this morning…”AN!”

If I had been there I would have had tears streaming down my face as well. For very different reasons. Not good ones.

To be fair, I think Trump probably stopped after he got caught. As such, my post was clearly sarcastic. But your reply- so defensive. And full of brainwash.
Priceless.

I read the interview with James Cobb. He has some good points.
The reason the South never advanced was because we couldn’t accept defeat and tried to change the narrative. Acceptance of defeat would have freed the South to make advances in race relations, education, and commerce.
The South changed defeat into the “Noble Cause”.
Then Georgia had governors like Gene Talmadge who really drove the nail into the coffin and buried progress.

I stayed because I realized just how much help is needed in the public policy space.

I disagree. I came down here because I was offered basically a free ride to SCAD.

Ohhhhhh…so letting them keep more of their own money is a freebie?? Love that attitude of The Tapeworms!

Caroline

No, not paying for anything is called a freebie. They benefit from things but don’t have to pay for them. I’m glad to know that for all your yelling about “freebies” you are perfectly fine with them as long as the “right” people get them. They pay their school taxes in NY, never contribute in GA and it’s all FREE to them.

I love it. Forts, snow man, skiing, snow angles, ice stating. Taking my cousin’s daft Shire team pull a sled over the home farm.

I grew up outside of Philly. I remember when we were kids we used to jump off a second floor fire escape landing into the snow drifts below. My folks say there hasn’t been snow like that up there for a long time.

Caroline

I talked to some people who had moved down here and their children stayed in NH. We asked them why and one of the reasons why the kids stayed in NH is because of their love of winter sports. You gotta admit if you like those kinds of things the south is not going to be very appealing to you.

So, the Steele dossier is fake, but there is a particular used mattress at a Trump hotel (in D.C. of course) that Pruitt has to have? How does that make any sense? Unless of course that is a very special mattress. Ahem, has anyone seen Keith Schiller lately?

This has raised a number of eyebrows, but I believe Pruitt’s aides have testified to it, and that email evidence exists about it. So it happened.
But it is more than curious. I know Pruitt was paranoid (I mean hyper-sensitive) about security issues, but he also apparently had other oddities. I think most ppl are guessing it’s some sort of Single White Trump worship or something.

Dave Bearse

It’s hard to keep up with it all, Benevolus. A Pruit aide ran an errand on the taxpayers daime, natch, to purchase a Trump Tower mattreass for Pruitt. Trump grifters doing their part to MAGA.

But why would you buy a used mattress? Wouldn’t you just ask them to sell you a new one, or get the brand/model name? It’s a very bizarre thing to do. “As I remember, the Administrator (Pruitt) had spoken with someone at the Trump Hotel who had indicated that there could be a mattress that he could purchase, an old mattress that he could purchase,” . So just imagine a scenario where The Dossier is accurate, so Trump hears about someone sniffing around in Moscow (not literally sniffing) trying to locate the mattress for evidence. Wouldn’t that be a definite… Read more »

Maybe Pruitt wanted it for fun times at that $50 a night Washington lobbyist’s condo Pruitt was renting. Remember, we’re talking about a cheapskate Trump grifter. But I repeat myself twice with that phrase.

If any part of the original story true, burning the mattress in Russia- somehow- would be the obvious move. But Putin or other oligarch could have lied, and sd they sent the mattress to Trump hotel.
I think it’s just a Pruitt fetish, and maybe he thought others with the same fetish might pay. What do you think such a mattress would grab on eBay?

As far as Ford/Kavanaugh goes, they seem to be agreeing on testifying but it’s not going to be on Monday. She has said she will come next week. And she will not sit at the table with Kavanaugh nor does she want him even in the same room with her.

Nothing against Georgia Turner, but its cause to wonder why Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is creating a new public safety position bringing him out of retirement that’s going to cost north of $300,000 including benefits and administrative support. Where that money will come from remains to be determined.

Meanwhile APD is hemorrhaging officers, losing 250 annually, in part due to low pay. One new high level administrative position, or a $1,5000 a year raise for every officer. You make the call.

“President Trump on Friday hit the brakes on his demand that the Justice Department release documents and emails related to the feds’ investigation into Russian election meddling — citing concerns raised by America’s allies. “I met with the DOJ concerning the declassification of various UNREDACTED documents. They agreed to release them but stated that so doing may have a perceived negative impact on the Russia probe. Also, key Allies’ called to ask not to release,” he tweeted. “Therefore, the Inspector General has been asked to review these documents on an expedited basis.

Me: Releasing unredacted FISA documents is going to compromise sources and methods and interfere with active criminal and counterintelligence investigations. It’s a really bad idea. Burned sources might get killed. Allies won’t trust us in the future and will be less likely to cooperate in intel sharing. Again, this is a horrible idea.

I think maybe the biggest thing I’ve learned as an attorney is how to recognize and ferret out lies. I think the victim in this case sets forth clear indicators that gives her credibility- like saying that Kavanaugh’s friend should testify.

That has always been known but it’s likely that considering the leaks coming out of the white house they are attempting to figure a way to get rid of Kavanaugh. Putting him on the supreme court is something that the GOP is going to be reminded of every election by their opponents. And since the GOP is hiding so much of his background it’s entirely possible that he might not be able to stay on the supreme court once the details come out.

This is not a court of law. It is a hearing to determine fitness for a lifetime appointment to the supreme court. We have heard a lot already, first of all Kavanaugh attempting to cook up something with Whelan blaming someone else for what he did. I mean basically Kavanaugh has admitted he did it by his actions. The bottom line is does the GOP think it is okay to put someone on the supreme court who attempted to rape a 15 year old girl?

You’re the one defending Kavanaugh. Why is he refusing reopening his background investigation? Kavanaugh is his own worst enemy. And again, Ellison is not asking for a lifetime appointment to the supreme court. Ellison can easily be gotten rid of if an investigation is done and it is determined that she is telling the truth. Kavanaugh takes 2/3 of the senate to get rid of. He has a much higher hurdle he needs to pass.

Why do you keep asking the same dumb question– whether anyone speaks for anyone else? Does Noway speak for you, or do you speak for Noway?
We are all individuals.
Not monoliths.
You could ask if anyone else agrees, or disagrees, which is surely your purpose. But words have meaning, and your usage reflects a fundamental misunderstanding and prejudice (a default position that all “libs” are the same).
So, I’d start there.

Andrew C. Pope
Andrew C. Pope

Yes. Just like I believe Kavanaugh’s victim.
.
I believe women because the data has shown that they’re telling the truth in 90 to 98% of cases and this b.s. world where we treat women like liars leads to millions of women remaining silent instead of reporting abuse or assault.

bethebalance
bethebalance

Why are you excited about this? Reports of abuse are a sad thing. Just try a modicum of appropriate emotion.

As to the substance, I’m consistent. This woman reported the alleged abuse to a doctor, and I’m inclined to give her the benefit of the doubt, and there should be an independent investigation from law enforcement. While it is different from Kavanaugh’s case– in that Ellison’s case is about domestic violence, and not sexual assault– the same standards should apply.
Hooray for standards!
Now how about you have some!

A person who wasn’t sexually assaulted and didn’t experience trauma doesn’t remember a party from 36 years ago? Shocker.

As for “innocent until proven guilty” you’re aware this isn’t a court of law, right? It’s a job interview. If you’re looking to hire someone and a person comes forward and relays a story about a potential sexual assault do you go “welp, innocent until proven guilty” or do you hire another candidate?

Ummmm, it’s not JUST that she does not remember a party. It is that she states she does not even know Kavanaugh. And remember, according to Ford there were only 5 people at this party. She does not even KNOW Kavanaugh?

Do you honestly believe this?

Andrew C. Pope

If that’s the case, have her testify as such publicly and under oath.

So interesting that the same folks complaining about due process don’t want a neutral investigation of the allegations and don’t want witnesses to testify.

Oh come on. This woman, a life long friend of Ford’s, does not want to become involved in this circus. So she submitted an official affidavit, signed under penalty of perjury, as to the above statements. The same as the other 2 guys. Official, under penalty of perjury statements.

And I LOVE for her to testify before the nation. But I cannot say I blame her for not wanting to be involved in this as she had nothing to do with any of this.

So Pope, I will ask again. Do you believe Ford’s story?

Caroline

Keyser said that she does not remember the party but that she believes Christine’s account of what happened. So even though she might not recall the party she backs up Christine according to an interview done by the Washington Post. Needless to say the crackheads at the Daily Caller are playing you as usual by leaving off pertinent information.

All I see is a statement from her lawyer, and she says she doesn’t remember being at the party. So maybe she just wasn’t there.
Did Ford say it was Keyser that was def there?

Also, for the record, four or five people is not a party.
But were they just in a separate space from the rest of the party?

Also, Noway, I will assume that whatever you say is also said by DTM, and vice versa.

Andrew C. Pope

Just for the education of everyone here, Noway’s response to credible allegations of child molestation by Roy Moore was to say the teenaged victims “wanted it,” effectively labeling them as sluts out in search of an older man. Not even the Catholic Church has sunk that low to defend child molestation.

Y’all are entitled to your opinions on whether Kavanaugh or Ford is telling the truth, but if there is one person here who should be ignored, it’s the guy who blamed kids for getting molested.

Caroline

She sent the letter months ago. She contacted the Washington Post in 2017 before Kavanaugh was even named. The fact that it is all coming out now is due to the inept handling of Kavanaugh by the GOP from the beginning starting with hiding his records. Even the GOP acts like he’s a defective supreme court candidate. If the GOP doesn’t investigate this the Democrats will. So it’s best to do a full investigation and cut your losses while you can.

The GOP knew, prepped that Chicken 65 letter in advance, etc.

Let me get this straight. Ford is at a party with her long time girlfriend Keyser and 3 boys. 2 of the 3 boys supposedly attempt to rape Ford. Ford escapes and runs out. Leaving her girlfriend behind with 2 potential rapists. Not only does she leave her friend in serious jeopardy, the next day, and the next 36 years, Ford never even asks her friend if she survived the night with 2 marauding rapists.

Okay.

Sounds like you got all the details down, like you were right there. Are you the mystery attendee? Also, you’re wrong. From what I can tell, the WaPo article says Ford says there were the 2 boys with her in the room (Kav and Judge) and no one else, but there were 2 other boys and other party attendees in other rooms. Ford says she escaped the room, then later on, the party. No mention of whether she left the party with a friend or not. Nice of you to make stuff up though! Why in the world are you… Read more »

It seems to me Ford’s lawyer is not telling many details in order to kind of smoke out the excuses Kavanaugh is going to come up with. We really don’t know how many details Ford is going to testify to on Thursday. It will be interesting to see if there are more details that she will reveal.

Right. 1st of all every Judge is an activist. Judges make decisions, which are actions. If you think that they don’t have discretion to fill in the gaps of statutory ambiguity, and do so based upon the entire range of their preferences, including policy preferences, you just don’t know how the law or Courts work. Also, if you think the Court has given only “liberal” decisions over the past 50 years, you are even more clueless.

This is not my area of expertise, but I imagine a lot of state legislatures didn’t encode Roe v Wade because they didn’t have to. But if they had to, they would. And Roe v.

It is hard to imagine any law or Court that would remove the right of a woman’s choice pre-viability that could withstand any legal challenge. Although you could probably mandate procedures.

Landslides don’t happen with presidents with 36% approval ratings. Why do you think Republicans are so panicked about November?
