All Your Latest Kavanaugh News

This story long ago jumped the shark and is now attempting to jump past Pluto.  Seeing the mainstream media in full blown hysteria is amusing if not edifying.

  1.  Kavanaugh is being taken to task for what was written in his high school yearbook.  Go here to read about it.  If I were ever nominated for a Supreme Court vacancy now I would definitely first shred my high school yearbook for 1975 to protect the innocent and the guilty, since stupid remarks at 18 are now deemed to have significance for that post.
  2. A far left history Professor is claiming that he can recall a conversation with Kavanaugh in his freshman year in which he denied being a virgin.  Go here and read all about it.  Sounds reasonable to me.  I am constantly recalling from my freshman year at college in 1975 random conversations I had with near strangers.
  3. Michael Avenatti, better known perhaps as “creepy porn lawyer”, the attorney who represents Stormy Daniels, hotly denies being the dupe of a 4Chan hoax and he really, really will be providing proof that Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge ran a secret conspiracy to have teenage girls gang-raped at house parties.  Go here for his sober response to the hoax claim.
  4. Surprise.  Deborah Ramirez of New Yorker fame does not want to testify tomorrow.  Go here to read about this truly shocking development.
  5. Mark Judge was tracked down by intrepid newshounds who gave us the important detail that his car had dirty clothes in it and a Superman Comics collection.  Go here to read this stop the presses blockbuster!  Once a nerd always a nerd?  I can empathize with that.

I have been unable to confirm that today it will be revealed that while in Kindergarten Kavanaugh would never take his nap and  liked to steal the cookies of a little girl who was scarred for life as a result.

  1. ” If I were ever nominated for a Supreme Court vacancy…”

    They would do to you exactly what they are doing to Kavanaugh. Slander. I posted this on FB. All my family – Pentecostals – and all my friends – conservative Catholics – agree.

    Amici, Americani, Compatriotae,

    The current debacle over Brett Kavanaugh reminded me that the first sin committed in the Garden of Eden was perpetrated by the Serpent and it was the sin of slander. When I was a child, my father (a devout Pentecostal Christian) would always remind us four children that this was the most heinous crime of all. Let us look again at the beginning of that story in Genesis 3:1-5:

    1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” 4 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not die. 5 For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

    Note that the Serpent called God a liar. The Serpent slandered God. And my father hated that with an unbridled passion. Yes, my father was a hater. He hated slander because it always resulted in all the other downstream sins. We know this is true because of what succeeding verses 6 and 7 state:

    6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.

    Note again what Sacred Scripture states: The tree was good for food (the lust of the flesh), and it was a delight to the eyes (the lust of the eyes), and that the tree could make one wise (the pride of life). This is exactly what 1st John 2:16 says:

    16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.

    Slander inexorably and inevitably leads to all the other sins that exist. Indeed, slander murders by destroying one’s good name and reputation. Furthermore, there is not one shred of evidence against Brett Kavanaugh today just as there wasn’t against Clarence Thomas more than two decades ago. But their good names and reputations are murdered! And this slander is the exact same kind of evil with which the Serpent beguiled Eve in the Garden of Eden. The Serpent tried to murder God, and that’s what happened at Calvary when our slander murdered His only begotten Son.

    This is an old, old story, and I sincerely wish today that my father were around to remind everyone of the heinous evil in which we are engaging. God is NOT a disinterested spectator in the affairs of men. He will respond in mercy for the innocent, and that will mean judgment for the guilty. So let us be careful when we ask for God’s mercy because we just may get it and it won’t be what we expect or anticipate, but it will be what we need.

  2. It’s funny. And yet it’s not. I was asked if, as the father of four sons, I’m concerned by what I’m seeing. I said no, it has nothing to do with having four sons. If I had no children at all, common sense dictate that I should be concerned. Because this idiocy isn’t being driven by some strange social media page. It’s being driven by our educators, journalists and lawmakers.

  3. “I have been unable to confirm that today it will be revealed that while in Kindergarten Kavanaugh would never take his nap and liked to steal the cookies of a little girl who was scarred for life as a result.”

    I also have it from good authorities that as a child he would not eat his peas when his mother told him. Does his disrespect towards women know no bounds?

  4. To see what big media is not printing, google…. Dr. Blasey Corcept mifepristone ru 486. She has ties to a company that uses mifepristone for e.g. Cushings syndrome so that the argument is that she is not involved in its use as a 50 day abortifacient. But shouldn’t the tie at least be explored by the NY Times as to the future prospects of that company in that 17% of abortions now are these medical abortions wherein mifepristone from one manufacturer are used by doctors in their office only. What then are the prospects that Corcept and others being allowed in the future to enter that market as the percent of abortions done this way increases. The coincidence of her having been a paid director for Corcept and Kavanaugh’s potential to affect the future of mifepristone at least warrants the large media outlets exploring this issue.

  5. Let’s hope this back-fires to the point that the Dems loose more seats come midterms. Let’s see the public become disgusted with the media’s biased slant and the wicked witch hunt to burn Kavanaugh becomes fuel to move some voters to the right.

    It’s possible.

    Senator Feinstein may have helped the Republicans come November. Wouldn’t that be poetic justice?

    ( unrealistic expectations…but I can hope. )

  6. I read recently that the Republicans have loss control of the Nomination Committee, that may be so, but the Democrats have certainly loss control of how this whole story ends. My sense is that the public is disgusted: my conservative friends are disgusted and my liberal friends are too -none take this seriously.
    Look for a Red wave. More fun of two years ago when the Media was projecting a huge loss and turned out to be totally wrong.

  7. This is a political (all deceit and coercion) knife fight.

    The end justifies the means.

    The lies and hysterics are 100% about keeping Roe, gay privileges, transgender dementia, etc. It evinces the ongoing repudiation of democracy – the court-imposed national abominations were not, could not have been, enacted by elected legislatures. Jefferson wrote something like if a court of judges is the final arbiter on Constitutional questions . . . we are under the tyranny of an oligarchy.

    The hypocrisy is mind-numbing. Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, groper Corey Booker, Keith Ellison, . . . Read Howie Carr’s book, Kennedy Babylon, and experience nonfictional bad people in action.

    Tee shirt seen on another website said, “Make Orwell Fiction Again.”

    Also, “1984 and Fahrenheit 451 Are Not How-To Guides.” Except for the hate-filled, lunatic democrats.
    Here is an Orwell (referring to reporting on the Spanish CW) quote appropriate to ALL the false accusation. He wrote that he read stuff that did not contain, “even the iota of truth found in the common lie.”

  8. “More fun of two years ago when the Media was projecting a huge loss and turned out to be totally wrong.” -David

    Amen.
    The unrighteous will be seen for what they are.
    Question is how long will it take for them to wake up? Each man has a spark of the Divine, freewill and the ability to change. Conversion is a life long process. Let’s hope many of your Dem friends will be moved by the spark and return to the light.

    Feinstein and Ford… agents of conversion.

  9. I’ve long thought the liberal mentality has been such that they saw the world at large as one big high school. They used to be subtler about it than this.

  10. My sense is that the public is disgusted: my conservative friends are disgusted and my liberal friends are too

    It all depends on what they do with that disgust, doesn’t it? Me? I’m disgusted with the Democrats and their willing enablers in the media & with these women who let themselves be used like . . . , like . . . ,

    . . . well, like whatever these kind of women are I guess.

    But I’m also pretty annoyed with the Republicans for going along with this farce. So if they get rolled & Kavanaugh doesn’t get confirmed, I’m taking it out on them, not the Democrats.

    -none take this seriously.

    .

    That’s the problem. Because it needs to be taken seriously if we expect to stop slouching toward the tyranny of liberal fascism.

    I was never enamored of the Graham family’s enterprise, but The Post seemed for about 15 years there to have retained some residue of professionalism while Pinch Sulzberger was ruining The Times, and for decades they had just about the finest Op-Ed page in the country (while the Sulzberger’s were feeding their readers Anthony Lewis). The Bezos-era Post is astonishingly repulsive. Keep in mind that the revenue streams for news properties have dried up so their manpower is much more circumscribed than it once was. They put that limited manpower to work on tasks like dumpster dives through Sarah Palin’s e-mails and school yearbooks from Brett Kavanaugh’s past. Is there anyone of any integrity at all working for The Times, The Post, or CNN?

  12. For the so-called journalist, Integra-tea like Hones-tea are only beverages to be swallowed up and eventually discharged. They finish their brew and gaze upon the tea leaves.. hence their conclusions.

    In all in the tea.

  13. I understand that the MainStreamMedia is owned and controlled by one world tyrant George Soros. George Soros funds the mobs in the street such as Occupy Wall Street and Antifa. The First Amendment of peaceable assembly is violated. Soros is hell bent on owning the world. Soros’ bloated face looks like he died two or three weeks ago and forgot to lay down.
    Kavanaugh or no Kavanaugh, the people are seeking peace, Justice and FREEDOM.

  14. LQC: The devil promised Adam and Eve something he, the devil, did not have to give and something that Adam and Eve already had, that is, sovereign personhood, made in the image of The Supreme Sovereign Being, “their Creator”, God. The devil promised Jesus something he did not have to give. Jesus Christ is God, sovereign over all nations. Had Jesus not sent the devil away Jesus would have affirmed that the devil had sovereignty over all the nation to give to any of his minions. NOT. Lucifer disassociated himself from sovereign personhood when he, the devil, disassociated himself from the Supreme Sovereign Being.
    God does not contradict Himself. The devil has free will to roam the earth seeking the ruin of souls. The devil makes GARBAGE out of good. It is called ruin.
    The sovereign personhood of the human being made in the image of The Supreme Sovereign Being, obliterated by crime and evil, will conquer all evil besieging mankind, starting with Bret Kavanaugh

  15. Mary De Voe.
    Yes. Keep your rosary in motion. I too pray it faithfully and believe it’s the reason why vice can be replaced with virtue. Our Mother helps us so much.
    I’m so sorry for the atrocities your family has suffered from disordered individuals. Keep helping souls Mary. Deacon Philip?
    That must be for some other Philip.
    I’m just trying to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
    When souls are moved to become Catholics it’s because of the Holy Spirit.
    “Lord, help me to decrease so you may increase in me.” ..is a regular in my prayer Arsenal. Your prayers have helped my friends to come home.
    We had our second class last night. God bless you Mary.

  16. I’m a husband and the father of two daughters, so I am by no means anywhere near believing that “all women lie about rape” or “even if she’s not lying she must have been asking for it somehow” or ” even if she wasn’t asking for it, the tramp still deserved to get raped.”

    But the Democrats and the media are pushing me that way.

    And this my friends, is the true cost of politicizing the personal. Because the last thing we should be asking in these cases is “who’s the Democrat? who’s the Republican?” instead of the first.

    Also: I’m sick and tired of Rod Dreher’s virtue signalling. Either you’re part of the public square or you’re not. You can’t step in and out of it as you please.

  17. “If Ford’s letter to Feinstein is an example of academia’s writing skills then I weep for the future.” -Ken

    Her grammar, sentence construction, syntax etc does not at all comport with her scholarly papers’ writing: Two examples of the 65 or so articles she has participated in, in which she heads the article (so likely she wrote up the research):
    Blasey, C. M.; Block, T. S.; Belanoff, J. K.; Roe, R. L. (2011). “Efficacy and Safety of Mifepristone for the Treatment of Psychotic Depression”. Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology. 31 (4): 436–440.doi:10.1097/JCP.0b013e3182239191. PMID 21694614.

    Blasey, Christine; McLain, Carina; Belanoff, Joseph (2013). “Trough Plasma Concentrations of Mifepristone Correlate with Psychotic Symptom Reductions: A Review of Three Randomized Clinical Trials”. Current Psychiatry Reviews. 9 (2): 148 – 154. doi:10.2174/1573400511309020009.

    So the Blasey Ford “letter” is likely a write-up of notes by a Feinstein staffer, giving her deniability.

  18. Outgoing AZ Sen Jeff Flake has nothing to gain by a vote for Kavanaugh, since as clueless and truly sanctimonious as he is, he (1) mistakenly believes AZ is going “blue” politically and that this McCain-style “maverick” vote will (2) keep him in the good graces of the political conoscienti in that state or in Washington DC, for a long, long time, likely in some worthless progressive think-tank where he will get a fat salary forever and ever, a Defender of Women Who Came to His Senses, and who finally shed his Republican reptilian skin.

  19. If constituents put enough pressure on their Senators, as in, “if Kavanugh goes down, you’re going with him at the soonest opportunity”, the rest of the caucus can pull him back into line, as in, you screw us on this and we’ll make it impossible for you to make a K street living.” Something like that.

  20. Deacon Philip? If you are not, why not? Rosaries. I am thinking of Nineveh. The king ordered even the cattle to wear sack cloth and go without food and water.,,,and poor Jonah went out of his gourd.
    It is incumbent upon every gentleman to make a lady of the street walker, unless of course, the lady refuses. It is still a gentleman’s vocation to be gracious.

  21. Mary De Voe.

    It takes husband and wife in that beautiful calling. She has some issues with the Holy Church which she will not, at this point, allow herself to be open to. It’s my cross. We love each other. The disordered definition of same sex couples is a stumbling block. She has many liberal friends and her siblings are all liberal. Some of her friends are homosexual.
    I have been very gracious with her friends, however, I have spoken of the acts that separate God from man. Adultery for instance.
    And that there is no such union as gay marriage regardless of man’s law.
    This is where the bullets fly.

    So my bride has stopped taking the sacraments. It’s been a handful of years now.
    At Christmas I had to ask her not to receive holy communion unless she has partaken in reconciliation. Yup. That didn’t fly either.
    Father Libby has tried to reach her as well.
    At this point my Mary believes that her relationship with God is healthy. No reason for Catholic Church and it’s statutes.

    Please keep her conversion in your prayers.

    St. Monica is close to me in prayer.
    She is a great source of comfort.

    Peace.

    (I apologise to the others who didn’t expect to be taken off the line of this thread. )
