Shame About That Country You Used to Have

If you look at everything that has happened in the last twenty-four hours, the conclusion that makes the most sense to me is that the Russians now control Trump, the rule of law doesn’t mean jack/shit, and unless a bunch of Republicans that have previously shown no courage suddenly find some, no one is going to save us.

The American people need to vote in such overwhelming numbers that any malfeasance or manipulation falls short. I highly doubt that will happen until we have massive unemployment, mass starvation, or a complete ban on Internet porn.

Seriously, what the fuck is it going to take for Americans to understand that their government doesn’t function anymore because it is inconvenient for the hapless clown who used Russian help to steal the presidency?

Brett Kavanaugh Likes to Get Kinky

What is it with Republicans who want to tell other people how to live their lives?

Senate Democrats are probing a new sexual-misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, The New Yorker reports.

The allegation stems from his time as a freshman at Yale University and is reportedly being investigated by at least two Democratic offices on Capitol Hill. Republican staffers were reportedly made aware of the allegation last week.

“This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanagh. It should be fully investigated,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told the publication.

The woman, 53-year-old Deborah Ramirez, alleges that Kavanaugh “thrust his penis in her face” during a party. She said she pushed him away after his penis touched her. She claimed Kavanaugh was laughing, adding: “I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.”

Ramirez was initially reluctant to go public, she says. But according to The New Yorker, she spent six days “carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” and eventually felt comfortable with coming forward. Now she wants the FBI to investigate the alleged incident.

“I wasn’t going to touch a penis until I was married,” Ramirez said. “I was embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated.”

Republicans don’t even know how to properly introduce themselves before exposing their genitals and shoving them in other people’s faces. This is the behavior of a young man who is entitled to forcing himself on others. If there’s one takeaway from the New Yorker article, it is that our elites are made up of some seriously fucked up people who should be registered as sex offenders.

Why would an entire political party go to bat for a jackass like this?

If the nomination isn’t pulled by noon on Monday, then it means there are no standards anymore. It’s not about putting an accomplished jurist on the Supreme Court. It’s about dancing around like a frat boy with no pants while liberal tears rain down.


Seriously, fuck these people. If Kavanaugh was a Democrat, they would have already burned down the government trying to stop him from being heard before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

High and Mighty Hypocrites

Kavanaugh Story.jpg

Reporter Dan Eggen has a great piece out today about the efforts behind the scenes to prop up the nearly-obliterated reputation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It certainly appears to me that Kavanaugh felt it was beneath him to give the people trying to help him some sense of what was in store for them when they were going to have to go to bat for him in this process. By refusing to tell them straight what it was that could sink his nomination, he effectively cut them off at the knees. I wouldn’t be surprised to see these people leak damaging information in retaliation if Kavanaugh fails to be confirmed. They are going to want to destroy him in order to show others that they need to play ball.

What strikes me about all of this is that no Democrat anywhere would ever be allowed to refuse to talk about their private life. We’re seeing this in Texas right now. Beto O’Rourke is having ads run against him because of a drunk driving incident in the last century. What you did in the Nineties and Eighties isn’t going to go away, man. And, with regards to Kavanaugh, it doesn’t matter if he was in high school. The Republicans love it when a juvenile is tried as an adult for their crimes; they love to see young African-American men blown away or sent to prison for seventeen life sentences. It’s this curious embrace of the rule of law that has them all hot and bothered to establish Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court where he can cover their Law and Order loving flanks.

Let’s examine the hypocrisy that exists right now:

What more do you have to say? This guy was a pervert’s pervert in his day job working for Ken Starr. And you’re telling me he should be trusted? Really?

There’s no way any Democrat would be allowed to proceed to a vote based on what we already know about Kavanaugh. Grassley, Hatch and McConnell would have burned down the Senate and thrown the desks into a pile by now. We all know this. We know they are just fucking hypocrites, through and through. They only care about getting a win that causes pain to others. If Kavanaugh had been Bill Clinton’s Staff Secretary, you’d already have every piece of paper he ever touched in a searchable database, ready for the perusal of a few thousand wannabe sleuths.

My guess is that they’re going to hang him for not telling them what they needed to know. He should have been more candid about his private life. If they go to war for him, they’re going to be hoisted on their own petard if someone somewhere has a critical piece of evidence that makes Kavanaugh look like a rapey, flaming douchebag.
