    when my son was about 2 years old, we were at a restaurant and he was sitting in a high chair. We were being served by an extremely comely young lass who had her back to my son whilst she took my order…at some point, he touched her callipygous derriere whereupon she uttered “oooh” and quickly turned round to confront the offending male chauvinist pig. When she realized who it was, she smiled sweetly at him and I thought “that’s my boy!” Apparently now he will never be able to run for or occupy any public office, sigh

    My niece was assaulted and raped last year by her boyfriend – she had broken up with him. She had the presence of mind to realize he was off psych medication and she pretended they had “gotten back together” until he left her home. Then she called the police, requested a rape kit, and Chicago PD were immediately there with her — he is in prison now based on evidence. Yes, she is scared for his release. But is preparing herself (self defense, new apartment) to be ready for anything. Testifying against him was extremely frightening for her in open court. Her parents were heartbroken for her but everyone is on the mend. I’m proud of her. The cheapening of her tragedy by silly accusations saddens me.

      Even self defense may not be enough at times. Extreme measure may be necessary, but Chicago makes it hard for anyone to own a gun. Is she even considering moving out of Chicago for her safety?

      That’s terrible. And the Democrats who portray themselves as the protector of women tear down progress they have made as a political tool. It shouldn’t be surprising because women and other sub-segments of the population are always used and manipulated, as they can, for their political goals.

      Yes, but why has she steadfastly refused to release the video she claims she has that shows him violently abusing her? All I hear from her is “nobody believes me”. That complaint seems disingenuous if she indeed has video evidence that would prove her claims.

    Difi cant say everything is truthful. Omg…. the woman knows its all bs and just cant admit to what she has done.

    Senator Dianne Feinstein, who held from public view the letter from Christine Blasey Ford detailing an accusation against Donald Trump‘s SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, told reporters today she cannot say “everything’s truthful.”

    Speaking to Fox News reporters, Feinstein said: “No one called her, or called her lawyer. My understanding is she got emails. I have no say. I’m the lead Democrat so this is all up to the Republican side.”

    “I can’t say everything’s truthful,” Feinstein added. “I don’t know.”

    The statement, given to Fox News and first reported on Twitter by reporter Chad Pergram, included her observation that the alleged incident has had a long-term, “profound” consequence for Ford.

    Her is a copy/paste of the New Yorker article that broke the story on Kavanaugh charges:

    Feinstein’s decision to handle the matter in her own office, without notifying other members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, stirred concern among her Democratic colleagues. For several days, Feinstein declined requests from other Democrats on the Judiciary Committee to share the woman’s letter and other relevant communications. A source familiar with the committee’s activities said that Feinstein’s staff initially conveyed to other Democratic members’ offices that the incident was too distant in the past to merit public discussion, and that Feinstein had “taken care of it.” On Wednesday, after media inquiries to the Democratic members multiplied, and concern among congressional colleagues increased, Feinstein agreed to brief the other Democrats on the committee, with no staff present.

    Wow. Feinstein had “taken care of it” And these bozo’s want to run the country and pick our judges!

      “For several days, Frankenstein declined other dems requests”, how did they KNOW about it, in the first place?

      This sounds like the creation of an ‘echo chamber’, just like dossier handling.

      Generating enough ‘buzz’ about it, that ‘you have no choice BUT to investigate’,
      Yeah, we’ve seen this novel before, and it’s getting really old.

      And recognise one of the key players, AGAIN? The press.

      Really would like to see it bailed down, whether she wrote similar letter about Gorsuch, but probably will never get to the bottom of any of this.

    An observation on the Brett Kavanaugh mess and a lesson to all of us.

    This is a simple logic lesson. The woman says such and such (carefully worded). How do you disprove that?

    You can’t. At least according the rules of logic (yes, logic has rules). It is the same as saying “unicorns are real and they exist”. And then it is your job to disprove that statement. You can’t.

    In order to do so, you would have to travel to every square foot of the known universe, and make sure there are no unicorns there, however long that takes. Preposterous? Yes, and because of that it is an invalid logical assertion. The statement cannot be disproved. See the problem here?

    For a statement to be proven true, it has to be possible to falsify it. In other words, the statement has to be able to be proven as false. That is how it works.

    See how that works? Most people don’t. The courts do know how that works though and they do a good job at that. But then we, THE WHOLE COUNTRY, are now the victims of criminal judgement according to CNN.

          As well as ‘legitimate’ victims, and their families. Whole thinks stinks, and stinks of desperation.

          And I’m honestly confused as to the dems. strategy here.

          Are they honestly trying to derail the nomination? If so, HOW do they think that helps them in the midterms?

          Or, are they making a show, which they will ‘lose’, and hope that generates more votes for them in midterms?

          Are they attempting to appeal to the only ‘base’ they have left, the ‘libbers’ pro abortion group?

          Or, like a firing animal, are they just thrashing around, acting on instinct and automatically, with NO strategy?

      Big Don

      Don’s at the rally you can see him arrive.
      He stands six-foot-three and weighs two-thirty-five.
      Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip
      And everybody knows ya don’t give no lip to big Don.

      Everybody knows where Don calls home;
      He’s a New York City boy and he didn’t roam.
      He builds great skyscrapers of concrete and steel
      And became a world expert at the art of the deal.

      He saw the need – our country’s renovation.
      We needed some work to become a great nation.
      He took up the challenge and he volunteered
      Then started his plan and put it in gear.

      He doesn’t think or act like a typical pol.
      When he wants to stop something, he’ll build a wall.
      He doesn’t make a pitch for us to join him.
      He’ll join us, that’s how we will win.

      With all other pols, their talk is so cheap.
      Don tells us clear, the promises he’ll keep.
      There’s just no question, the other pols lie.
      Don’s word is his bond; no one can deny.

      Our Don’s a leader, and a man of the people.
      Other pols are wusses, just nothing but sheeple.
      When you get to know him, he’s kind and humble.
      His actions show he cares, that’s worth a bundle.

      Don’s astute and smart; he gets things done.
      He’s a man of action, second to none.
      Other pols don’t think, they just watch the clock.
      Nothing gets done, it’s talk and talk and talk.

      He’s kind and considerate, as everyone knows,
      Especially to those that are brought down low.
      To those rude and crude that so often we hear,
      He gives ‘em the thumb and “Get ‘em outta here!”

      The pols ignore us, but Don will be our voice.
      And to be sure, the pols will have no choice
      But to listen to the people when they write the laws,
      Because people know best, we’re the first cause.

      Don said it best: He’ll make America great.
      He’ll surely come through, he won’t be late.
      He’s become very dear, a man we can count on;
      So close to our hearts a big, big man – Big Don.

      The FBI actually has no jurisdiction as no crime (let alone a Federal Crime) has been committed or reported. Plus, the FBI already competed its required background check finding nothing to report. Ms. Ford has to file a complaint with the proper authorities in the State of Maryland if she wants any further investigation to be conducted.

    The senate race in TN seems to be a genuine toss up. Marsha Blackburn is not as well known around the state as Bredesen. He got some good things done as governor but what voters need to understand is that a vote for Any Dem, no matter how moderate they are, is a vote for the D majority in the Senate which is far left. On any SCOTUS appointment, border security, any partisan issue (which is almost all issues these days) Bredesen will vote with the rest of the crazy Dems in the Senate.
    If you live in TN please get a yard sign, please speak to your friends and neighbors, donate, call the campaign and ask how you can help, etc. Seems to a close on and I don’t like that!
