Whole testimony, huh? LOL Why has nobody investigated her years in prep school and college in order to establish some basis for believability? I’ve never seen any other legal situation where accusers don’t have any threshold for establishing their credibility, before being allowed to destroy someone else’s whole life. The media has been totally irresponsible in just running wild with unsubstantiated accusations all the way through this thing. Yet they are crickets on very real facts, like this perpetration of Saul Alinsky and Acorn tactics in the halls of our nation’s Capitol by a Hungarian billionaire intent on destroying US government and civility: https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/identity-woman-screamed-flake-elevator-revealed-soros-connection-uncovered/ https://pjmedia.com/trending/one-of-the-women-who-ambushed-flake-in-elevator-is-director-of-soros-funded-group/ October 3, 2018 12:37 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Sally you better get back in line or your account will get hacked like mine and Noway’s! Don’t be hatin”! Don’t be asking questions about another con job! This one aint working either but don’t tell the radical libs this. They think this is effective. Oh, how did CNN have a camera right there!?! Haha! They were in on it! Now get back on your plantation Sally and quit being “uppity”! And yo’ shoes is too shiny!! They might not ask you to host Saturday Night Live again! Oh and keep up the good work!! October 3, 2018 12:55 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth Yeah, I gotta do something about my shoes, scuff ’em up! Speaking of, where IS Noway? October 3, 2018 4:49 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn He is taking a sabbatical until after the election he tells us. If he follows past sabbaticals, he will be back some time before the election. He misses us. October 3, 2018 6:37 PM Sally Forth Thanks, Ellynn. 🙂 October 3, 2018 7:43 PM bethebalance And, not my expertise, but technically I don’t think you were hacked— you were spoofed. Besides one or two small details, I couldn’t tell much difference in some of the posts between the original and the copycat. October 3, 2018 7:01 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant Correct btb. For example a username could be set up using “downthеmiddlе” instead of “downthemiddle” where a different character code is used for one of the letters. Can you tell the difference? The WordPress program does and thus treats them as unique user names. This ain’t hacking, it is as you said, spoofing and ridiculously easy. October 3, 2018 9:04 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle I even highlighted the hack as the liberal candy ass was doing it… I highlighted the exact ones that were hacked or spoofed!! You saw folks from the website saying both mine and Noway’s accounts were hacked by the same person… And you know who it is. So here you are denying actual evidence in front of your llying arrogant self. You can go look at the damn post again if you were so freaking lazy. You just got caught in another lie little buddy! October 3, 2018 9:15 PM Log in to Reply Will Durant Again, this is pointless. You don’t even have an understanding of the words you type. Even when you aren’t plagiarizing others. October 3, 2018 9:23 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle The burden of proof doesn’t apply to the accused only if you are a radical liberal numb nut not interested in the truth at all but want to destroy a Supreme Court candidate you don’t like. Does anyone disagree with that? October 3, 2018 9:29 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Hi folks, lookie who just got arrested for all sorts of crimes. Heck he is just following the rest of his party isn’t he? Andrew, I bet you can excuse this behavior too cant you? He didn’t accuse anyone of rape did he? Look at the little arrogant,snowflake twit…Another crooked DNC staffer…going to the pokey. I hope they prosecute these false accusers too. Maybe this guy can get a job at the FBI or IRS. Strzok, Page and Comey are gone. Maybe Feinstein’s staff is hiring since there is an opening after her driver of 20 years, who was a Chinesee spy was finally fired… Are you okay with what is going on here? Andrew why don’t you explain to us how doxxing, Spoofing and hacking work. Most folks that don’t that kind of crap don’t know the details. Thanks. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/gop-doxxing-suspect-arrested-worked-or-interned-for-feinstein-jackson-lee-other-dems Is there an honest democrat in Washington any more? Is this just another example of the swamp? And only 2 folks have been spoofed by dishonest liberals on this site in the last week. Not bad. Is anyone seeing a pattern or is it just me. October 3, 2018 11:06 PM downthemiddle WSJ today. Remember a week ago I told folks that the libs were railoroading this judge like Tom Robinson in To Kill a Mockingbird. I would love to see any democrat say how this is not exactly what is going on. No innocent until proven guilty. Lawers on this blog brag about it. Its just a job interview. Hey if you go to a job interview and they do this to you, get a GOOD LAWYER and sue them to the wall. Will the Senate Kill a Mockingbird? Democrats, are you proud of what you have done? Don’t rationalize it. Tell us. https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-senates-job-isnt-to-kill-a-mockingbird-1538607608 October 4, 2018 7:52 AM xdog I haven’t heard Alinsky’s name mentioned in years. I guess I thought you guys finally realized he was dead. October 3, 2018 1:06 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth But his book “Rules for Radicals” is very much alive and in use today. It elaborates on tactics for his 13 Rules; the last 9 are currently being implemented flagrantly: “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.” “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” “Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.” “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” “Keep the pressure on.” “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside” “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” October 3, 2018 4:46 PM Log in to Reply xdog ‘Flagrant’ just means they work. Alinsky was an organizer and an agitator and a man of the left. He could be a royal pita if you had something he wanted. I can see why that would alarm the right. Here you go: Buckley interviews Alinsky. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZ9Si5pkAqg&feature=youtu.be October 3, 2018 6:46 PM Benevolus “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.” Another way of saying that is; It doesn’t matter what you have as long as the enemy thinks you have it. Which is why, if the Russians really do have ‘kompromat’ on Trump, they wouldn’t release it. It loses it’s power once it is exposed. Unless of course, they decide they want to destroy him. But they might not have anything, but if Trump thinks they might have something, he might be inclined to behave appropriately. October 3, 2018 8:04 PM Sally Forth Yeah, his was a fine communist philosophy that America’s constitutional structure and capitalism needed to be destroyed, and replaced with mob rule. This guy was a disgusting piece of crap who stood for the worst elements of society. He was a freakazoid who devoted his drug-addled life to creating chaos. He gleefully developed his “rules” for creating anarchy and blowing apart American civilization. Today his anarchist schemes have been adopted by Soros and his multi-million dollar organizations, “community organizers” manipulating the mindless masses into self-destruction. They engender hate for all that is good about America and thrive on divisiveness. Wake up, people! October 3, 2018 8:47 PM Will Durant I wouldn’t trust aluminum foil alone. It doesn’t block the radiation sufficiently. You should also use a layer of lead foil as well. October 3, 2018 9:13 PM bethebalance “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”: I turned a one million dollar loan into a billion dollar business. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”:. I will only hire the best and brightest. “Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.”: I am the only one who can make the best deals. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”: I know some Democratic Senators who are very mean. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”: Ask Lil Marco to find you a hundred examples of ridicule. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”: We don’t want to believe the fake lying news, do we? Drain the swamp! “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Hmmm…this one’s a tough one. It’ only been 2 yrs. “Keep the pressure on.”: We will build that wall. We will enforce zero tolerance. We will shut down the government to get the funding for the wall. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”: If I lose, the stock markets will crash. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” Same as ‘Keep the pressure on’. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.” The press is the enemy of the people. Fake new, fake news, fake news. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Hmm…? “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Lock her up! Lock her up! I think the point has been made. October 3, 2018 11:53 PM xdog Alinsky wasn’t a Communist, he wasn’t drug-addled, he was nobody’s lapdog and he wasn’t the kind of lying bullying stable genius who dominates politics today. October 4, 2018 8:00 AM Dave Bearse Remember you’re communicating with a follower of the man that said, “Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice.” October 3, 2018 10:56 PM Log in to Reply auh2o But I didn’t think there were witnesses the the Professor ‘s allegations. No one seems to back up her version. October 3, 2018 4:05 PM Log in to Reply Benevolus Even if you call that issue a draw his emotional outburst, the crying and yelling and anger, and flippant responses to legitimate questions should disqualify him anyway. Oh, and not to mention the lying. Find somebody else. October 3, 2018 4:41 PM Log in to Reply auh2o From his perspective how can he provide exculpatory evidence for an event that never occurred? And I’ll ask again, what bad behavior did he ever exhibit at his other judge position? That’s where I’m still having trouble. Some of you are continuing to suggest that his defending himself is somehow a disqualification. October 3, 2018 6:05 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse It’s tough to find exculpatory evidence for stating under oath that devil’s triangle referred to a drinking game, and that he wasn’t a puking drunk in HS when the contemporaneous yearbook time he indicated he was. . We’re unlikely to ever know with any certainty whether the allegation of sexual assault of Ford is true. But what we do know with certainty is Kavanaugh is a liar. October 3, 2018 10:47 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth ACP, you have NO idea all the things I know about. Oh, but I forgot – lack of knowledge has never stopped you before. Carry on. October 3, 2018 4:53 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Andrew you sound like a fool…with a supposed law degree!! The accused has the burden of proof !!!! To prove he is innocent! That’s never been the case in the history of this country. You might want to go back to law school .. For that reason alone don’t elect these fascist fools in November. Do you want to live in a liberal police state? October 3, 2018 9:05 PM Log in to Reply Sally Forth “He’s the one with the burden of proof “ ACP, say huh? Please stop opining on things you obviously know nothing about. It’s that old legal basic, the presumption of innocence. The burden of proof is always on the accuser, no matter what the situation. October 3, 2018 5:25 PM Log in to Reply NoParty4Me From Susan Collins’s home newspaper. Editorial “Kavanaugh is unfit for Supreme Court” https://amp.bangordailynews.com/2018/10/02/opinion/editorials/kavanaugh-is-unfit-for-supreme-court/?__twitter_impression=true October 3, 2018 5:24 PM Log in to Reply Caroline Calling him unfit seems to be coming from everywhere these days except the GOP. October 3, 2018 7:53 PM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Caroline, the only folks I see calling him unfit are folks that do not want to know the truth, don’t care about the truth and are so partisan they cant see straight. October 3, 2018 11:13 PM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse . October 4, 2018 12:15 AM Log in to Reply Caroline LOL. The people calling him unfit are the people that know him best and at one point endorsed him but yanked their endorsement after his crazed tirade the other day. October 4, 2018 4:46 AM Log in to Reply downthemiddle Caroline…who? Those that know him best have stood up for him all along. Does anyone other than Caroline here disagree with that? Enough irritation for today… Got to go play with some homies at Peachtree! October 4, 2018 8:05 AM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
