    What if the pause wasn’t for leverage but a way to capture their king?

    What if PT instead of going for check, he now sees a faster path to checkmate?

    I think Bongino is on to something.

        There is one common denominator in your post….

        Republican

        It is time to start the MAGA Party and whitewash the word Republican from the face of the Earth.

        In 2020 it is MAGA vs Socialist

        Republican and Democrat are dying breeds

            singular – Your point is excellent. And another point to add to yours is that it takes a very long time to build a party that can win on a national level. Takeover of the GOP makes more sense. The communists (and that’s all the socialists are and we should call them by what they are) took over the Democrat Party so that proves it can be done.

          Your sentiments match mine. I no longer say I’m a Republican. I identify myself as a Conservative and a Deplorable. The GOP has no gonads, no spine, no guts, and limited brain cells functioning. The GOP fools can’t figure out how to stay on offense with the exception of Jim Jordan, Gavin Nunes, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Rand Paul, and a handful of others. The GOP is comfortable being on defense and cowering. It’s disgusting. Thank God for President Trump, General Mattis, Mike Pompeo and a handful of others in the Trump Administration.

            I agree. I hate the GOP. I didn’t vote for a Bush or Clinton. During those years I voted Perot, Perot, Buchanan. I will never forget the internal combustion at Free Republic when the revolt over Georgie the Cheerleader went viral – I was banned and never returned.

            I can’t repeat my fantasies for Peggy Noonan. Bill Kristol and George Will. [ I was really into visuals back then, when there was no hope for conservatism, but for McWormfood, Romney et al. Hint – it required sharp instruments, cuffs and horny, eager apex predators named Bravon and Dushelle…..

            Then in 2008, I was gang raped [once] by the Citicorp packaging division of Yes We Can – because I, like so many suburban housewives bought into the 3 hankie “black boy done good” and “post racial America”…..

            I will never forget the day My Donald stepped on that escalator with his elegant daughter.

            I actually LOVE my president. I fawn over him. I write to him, and caution him to get some sleep. I don’t know how he gets up every day and faces the reprobates in his own party – let alone the malevolence of the left.

            I never thought I would live long enough to be enamored by a President. I love him. I love his children, his wife, and my extended MAGA family. For all our faults, we are a family

I changed my registration to unaffiliated and remain that. But I stopped voting Dem over 10 years ago and have voted straight GOP since. I will continue voting GOP because POTUS needs us right now, but my disgust for the current Republicans is beyond words. I did just call Grassley and leave a message…wonder about calling Flake…

              Abortion is a heartbreaking thing….. first for the woman that decides to and for our society as a whole. I noticed no one else wants to touch this…..I understand …..most here are very pro life. I agree it is not an ideal situation for the mother or the child if unwanted but adoption is an alternative. As a mostly Christian Society we should help support the Mother until the Baby is adopted. Would much rather tax dollars go for that then planned parenthood. Having said all of that my solution to unwanted pregnancy is very un PC. I would offer to do free tubal L. With an upfront payment of $20000 to women who don’t want pregnancies. I know sounds crazy but I believe many who should never have children would sign up. Harsh sounding but much more humane than abortion and would save tax payers the burden of an unwanted child from cradle to grave. A sad fact,many women are not responsible enough to practice birth control …

        50/50 on caving on Kavanaugh. Republicans are like abused wives (the media are the abusers). They desperately want to do something so the abuser doesn’t beat them up. So they cave.

        They will never change but the time to dump them is not now. The time to dump them is when President Trump is out of office. THEN we can stay home or vote Third Party or sit on our hands to send them a message. Until then, they have us by the throat just like the media has them by the throat.

        Kavanaugh should, if defeated or forced to withdraw, immediately launch a defamation of character lawsuit against Christine Ford AND look into what legal action he can take against the Washington Post if the charges against him, printed in the newspaper, turn out to be false.

        I think the reason Ford won’t give an exact date of the party is she is lying and if she gives an exact date, Judge Kavanaugh may be able to prove he was not even in MD on that date.

        Remember the Duke Lacrosse charges? Those boys would have been convicted had not one of them been at an ATM at the exact time the woman claimed she was raped. This unraveled the whole case and it fell apart. But for that, they’d have been convicted and probably jailed. Duke University’s president and professors took full page ads out against these boys, taking the woman’s word against their own students. This enraged my husband, a Duke graduate.

        My guess is being a wealthy kid,if this took place in the summer, seventeen year old Kavanaugh may well have been in Europe (a lot of wealthy kids go to Europe in the summer) or at the beach or at his grandmother’s (where did she live?) or even waiting tables at a Beach as some of my friends did during HS. He could even have been in the hospital, or at an ATM (as was the Duke student) or home ill or even just home with his parents. Without a fixed date, he can’t prove he wasn’t there. THAT is why she doesn’t remember. She knows he wasn’t there, didn’t do it, and wants to be sure he can’t prove it.

          Interesting thoughts you’ve shared. The idea that Kavanaugh may be able to prove he wasn’t in Maryland on that date are probably pretty unlikely since he was in high school and not too many high schoolers travel a lot other than on family vacations (at least in those days they didn’t. What’s been said about the alleged event gives the impression was that it was during the school year, so that’s why I’m doubtful about the idea of some distant vacation being possible. But the bottom line is that there is no way they can prove it either way. Ford could be 100% truthful but there’s no evidence either way, even though the left believes that when in doubt always trust the leftist woman and convict the white conservative man. If Kavanaugh is confirmed to SCOTUS this will be to him exactly what the Anita Hill fiasco has been to Clarence Thomas. And if that happens, I can only hope that Kavanaugh handles it as well as Thomas has.

        There are a few things they – especially McConnell – stand firm on: judges and opposition to limits on free speech (aka “campaign finance laws”). I’m on – I think – the opposite side of Sundance regarding Citizens United. I believe it was correctly decided. If you can censor corporations from expressing their opinions (which takes money) how could that not apply to corporations that are in the business of speech: publishing companies, media companies, Michael Moore’s Dog Eat Dog Films, Inc., Citizens United, Inc. (producers of Hillary the Movie), Dinesh D’Souza’s corporation – which produces political speech? This is what Anthony Kennedy asked during the case. IMO there’s no qualitative difference between Amazon donating money to fund a political ad and Bezos just buying the Washington Post to BE a political ad. We can’t give the press (media corporations) free reign to make in-kind political contributions and prevent other corporations from arguing their cases.

        You could say the McConnell’s steadfast opposition to campaign finance restrictions and his support for conservative judges is self-serving – or serving the corporate interests that fund him – and you’d be right, but even if his motivation is 90% political self preservation and 10% principle, he wants Kavanaugh confirmed. The Machiavellian machinations it may take to get him on the court are what McConnell lives for. It’s why he wanted to be Majority Leader in the first place.

    Drawing a blank on Mattis and Pompeo’s advice to Pres on this, though. Thankfully, Pres ignored and made the right choice in the end.

    Report: Nikki Haley Excluded from Refugee Reduction Meeting for Pro-Immigration Views
    https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/09/21/report-nikki-haley-excluded-from-refugee-reduction-meeting-for-pro-immigration-views/

    … President Trump’s senior adviser Stephen Miller set up a meeting to discuss where the administration would set the refugee resettlement cap for next year. Ultimately, as Breitbart News reported, Trump reduced the refugee cap to 30,000 total admissions, which is solely a cap, not a target for the administration to reach.

    Haley, the sources said, was specifically excluded from the meeting on the refugee resettlement program because of her known pro-immigration viewpoints. Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo argued against reducing the inflow of refugees, despite Trump’s long-held promise to cut immigration to the country.

    While visiting India in July, Haley said America was founded as a “nation of immigrants” with “multiple cultures” and “multiple populations,” calling the multicultural worldview the “fabric of America.”

          Haley was “elevated” from her position as governor of SC, where she was doing great damage by destroying the culture and heritage of the state, to a position in the U.N. where she could, if minding her manners, serve with distinction. As you say, Tex, one misstep and she’s gone.

          One of my personal concerns about naturalized citizens running for state and federal offices is their lack of historical perspective on exactly what makes America different from other nations. It is not simply another (example) India with better job opportunities or better benefits, but an attitude about the sacrifices made by our forefathers to set forth a nation based on individual rights and rule of law. “The government shall not…” is a very purposeful use of sentence structure. We are a government OF and BY We the People.

          You don’t destroy books, flags, religious symbols and statues simply because YOU don’t understand why they are cultural symbols of the many battles fought for our nation. That is what totalitarians – be they monarchies, oligarchies, Nazis, Fascists, Communists, Islamists or Corporatists — do, not Americans.

            As a citizen of South Carolina I can assure you that Nikki Haley did not do great damage to the culture and heritage of our state.

            She ordered one flag removed from a flagpole on the Statehouse grounds, after a demented racist shot and killed nine black people in a church and photos surfaced of him displaying the Confederate battle flag.

            That flag was there as a compromise in order to remove it from flying above the Statehouse along with the state flag, and the Stars and Stripes.

            South Carolinians had a debate for a decade or more on the Confederate flag, after boycotts over the issue began to hurt the state’s tourism industry.

            It’s over now, done. The majority of citizens do not care about that missing flag.

    Dems are afraid to put this lady on the stand for some reason – there’s something deeply flawed with her that would undermine her already weak worthless case. (Bipolar? Suicidal episode? Past indiscretions? Something they know they don’t want discovered. Maybe she’d crack under pressure – who knows – but something is wrong!!)

    They have been stalling ever since her name got out on Sat. They don’t want to risk her appearing and realized it too late – stalling is all they got. But they are pretending she “wants to” take the stand. She won’t appear, but wants to pretend she’s being bullied, boohoo, etc, etc, etc until someone makes an error the Dems can pounce on – they’ll have demonstrations going within the week.

    DiFi sat on this for months then desperately threw it out there. (By the way on CNN lawyer said Ford actually spoke to DiFi personally July 30 then she retained counsel and has been only in touch with DiFi staff ever since. DiFi trying to keep fingerprints off this as much as possible!)

    Sounds like Dems told/promised lady anonymity then outed her (by accident or on purpose). Then they realized she’s too weak to put on the stand.

    What Dems have already done is establish the Republican precedent of accommodating delay. Now it’s up to Grassley to hold the line. He’s no fool and has seen years of this demo . But Senators’ concerns are their re-election races… that’s what’s so maddening for us. I trust Grassley to not let the vote slip away. We are sooo close.

Possible that mentioning the incident for first time ever to hubby and marriage counselor in 2012 then grew out of “opposition research” effort to bolster a planned “claim” to submarine the nomination. If she also tweeted searching for Gorsuch rape accuser, that might help show a modus operandum, and be one reason the Dems are using her for postponement purposes only, why DiFi won’t release letter, and she will never go under oath on this claim.

      They’ve already said they will not seat anymore judges at any level as long as Trump is President.

      In 2020, they only need to win the WH or hold the Senate. So, they just wait until 2020 or 2024 and they will seat at least 4 SCOTUS justices.

    From:

    https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=234228

    It appears Rosenstein had serious discussions with people inside the government on invoking the 25th Amendment against Trump to try to force him out of office.

    There are also reports that he “contemplated” (and maybe did) secretly record conversations, much as is claimed by Omarosa.

    There are also apparently memos, contemporaneously taken, that describe at least some of this — which the FBI has never disclosed.

    In other words there are two sets of files — one that Trump and the rest of the FBI have, and then one that has other material in it.

    In the corporate world keeping two sets of books — one for public consumption and one for private, internal use with materially different content is a serious offense. It is an instant fireable offense everywhere and in many cases is felonious.

    The so-called “denial” was amusing in that it actually confirmed the presence of the memos:

    “A set of those memos remained at the F.B.I. at the time of his departure in late January 2018,” the lawyer, Michael R. Bromwich, said of his client. “He has no knowledge of how any member of the media obtained those memos.”

    Oh, so you admit they exist?

    Now isn’t that nice…..

    Has Rosenstein been fired by Mr. Trump? Nope.

    What do you do with a subordinate who directly seeks to undermine you?

    You fire them.

    Immediately.

    Without exception, every time, period.

    Especially when it appears that they are keeping two sets of records — one set for consumption by other members of the organization and a second that contains different information you are or intend to use for some other not-above-board purpose.

      Zippy, to your one point about them “keeping 2 sets of records”, that dovetails in with Sundance’s statement:

      The OIG [DOJ Inspector General] can only report on facets of the investigation he is able to reach. If the system within the investigated agency is withholding information, well, clearly we can see how that would impact the investigative outcome and Inspector General report.

      https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/09/21/house-judiciary-committee-plans-to-subpoena-mccabe-memos-outlined-in-new-york-times-reporting/

      I suspect that Pres Trump, in booting the declassification and release issue over to DOJ Inspector General, may be preparing the ground to reveal that the Inspector General has been snowed and had information withheld from his investigation.

      If Inspector General report comes out and doesn’t include a bunch of information that Pres Trump already has in hand (as from other sources, maybe Patriot whistleblowers or Trump’s own counter-counter-intelligence operation)

      … then Pres Trump can do a reveal showing that additional level of DOJ/FBI corruption – that of interfering with Inspector General’s investigation.

      In other words, I think PresTrump is preparing to reveal that even the Inspector General function has been corrupted, by partisans hiding and withholding information.

      That would also reflect back on the 1st Inspector General report that’s already been released.

When they are over target, they do not care about ANY of the fall out, they drop their bombs and let God (or whatever their version of Him is) sort it out.

      Would like to add that the other thing giving me hope and resolve is that the President somehow finds a strategy to continue moving forward within the legal bounds of his constitutional authority and knitting together ad hoc legislative coalitions as needed, blending the faithful and feckless in the Republican Party. I am also strengthened by a belief that understanding shown here on CTH will somehow spread as voters awaken to situation by thinking for themselves.

      They’re great!

      And I love it that he’s doing them outside the WH…it makes it seem like he’s giving us a little report, an update, on some little positive bit of news.

      It reinforces that he’s One Of Us.
      Instead of reporting from the Oval Office, like all the previous presidents have done.

    So, I keep looking for a question to ask Christine Ford that would help cut through all the drama and political crap to ascertain just how serious her claim is. Here’s the best I’ve come up with —

    Q–Have you EVER contacted the Maryland police department or Maryland authority that has jurisdiction/responsibility to report this?

    Now I’m sure there will probably be lots of excuses of why she did not do so at the time(35 +/- years ago)–but that was not the question! The question was ever! Remember there is no statute of limitation for what she is now claiming(well maybe, as we don’t know exactly what she is claiming).

    So did you report this when you ‘remembered’ it in 2012? Why not?

    Did you file a report in July of this year when you reported it to the media and your elective official? Why not? But now you want the FBI, who has no authority to investigate this, to investigate? Why did your political advisers, lawyer(s), Ex-FBI polygraph examiner, and Democrat representatives, NOT suggest the proper legal procedures?

    If by chance she says yes she did, then ask what did those Maryland authorities say?

    But of Course, if she has no memory of where or when it happened–How do we even know it took place in Maryland?

    Just a thought.

      No, RR is in the right place for now: between a WH that hates and distrusts him and a NYT & dems who are turning on him viciously. RR is a a prey-class predator–he goes after small fry but has eyes on the sides of his head to see 360 degrees at all times because he is scared in his environment.

      Writes a Comey for-cause memo and then has hissy when it’s used. That’s unstable. I’m fine with letting him stew where he is. Besides, he’s a liability to the dems now. Why remove that? Why, on top of that, give them a reason to get amped about obstruction? They see it everywhere, so no need to give them more fuel in increase their mileage.

        doc,
        I think you are referring to the National SPCA.
        Not all community/City SPCAs are affiliated with the Nationals.
        I first learned of this distinction from hunters, as the National SPCA has an ongoing Campaign…stealth of course…to poison people’s minds re the evils of hunting.
        My local SPCA is a no-kill facility which has no affiliation with the Nationals.
        All such local facilities should, really, change their designations
        Innocent people think they are helping “the animals”, and when they contribute to the National SPCA, they are promoting propaganda and radical agendas.

    I’ve got a couple of perhaps dumb questions.

    Given PT’s last statements, about knowing the UK and Australia’s election interference, can we assume that he has finally read the documents and perhaps has kept his own copies?

    I am wondering if the IG will whitewash or omit some of the documents, not just redact if needed. And if PT hasn’t read or kept his own copies, how will he know what’s missing?

        He’s dealing with an organized group of political scam artists. Even though he is a politician himself, cut him some slack. His objective is to secure the affirmation of BK. If it is a bumpy ride for you, well, consider that at the end of a number of weeks or months, BK should be a seated justice. Will the ride have been worth it at that time, or will you look back and say you’d have preferred a smooth ride to no destination (i.e., no new justice)?

        Grassley is sometimes frustrating, but net-net he’s reliable ENOUGH. I’ll take what I can get from him. In the meantime, roll with it. See where this goes. The objective is two-fold: 1) BK seated, 2) PR for GOP midterms. Tell your influence group to show up and vote hard.

Have your party to get Dr. Ford a luxury Sunday night flight on Google’s plane at Moffett Field. It’s only 6 miles from her house, she can ride her bike to the airfield if she wants.
