Because Trump 2.0


Mr King

Recommended Posts

While I didn't take it as important as some German folks who are obsessed with anything Trump-related and seriously watched the Senate hearings themselves, I was immensely entertained by the Kavanaugh circus (I'm old enough and was sufficiently interested even then to remember the Thomas show, though not the original Bork adventure). Yet I'm glad it's over and German media will find something other to report on again, though I will admit to a certain pleasure in the meltdown of the more leftist part. :D

 

Yes the hearing was strange. On one hand the meltdown of the left, on the other hand the realisation how unsuited Kavanaugh is for the job. A judge fiercely opposed to the investigation of an alleged crime and coming up with conspiracy theories as an explanation was strange. In his new job he will face strong pressure quite often, so he should have been able to control his temper a bit better.

I've no doubt that Kavanaugh's reaction to being smeared by outrageous and baseless allegations was both sincere and contrived. The media, and even Kavanaugh allies, were stating that if his innocence was to be believed he had to present an outraged persona, which by most accounts would have been out of his character. So Kavanaugh presented the outraged accused and bam, the left and people such as yourself, thus found him unsuited. Had he been measured and without emotion no doubt the media, leftists, and people such as yourself, would have found him guilty as alleged because no innocent man would have behaved with so little emotion. He was damned either way by his critics, and thus I find them unsuited to make further observations on this matter.

Good triumped over evil. Trump's great strength is showing exactly how corrupt the left and various institutions are: https://twitter.com/instapundit/status/1047678258584666112?ref_src=twsrc^tfw

And showing the Republicans how to fight and WIN.

 

 

It is going to be sad when the Trump era comes to an end because there is only one Trump, and as soon as he is gone, the Republicans will be even more gutless than before.

 

Maybe not. Pence would be a great President in 2024 and 2028 after Trump's 2020 win. An excellent opportunity to remove a large part of the cancerous secular liberalism that infects our federal judicial system. Following up on the superior moral wins of Judge Kavanaugh and capitalism, the GOP has a historic chance to lesson the terrible effects of today's Democrats.

 

 

Mike Pence will be 65 in 2024, 69 in 2028, and 73 by the time a second term ended. It might be time for a younger man by then. Still, if he's in good health, that may not be a serious issue

I wonder if Cruz would consider VP.

----

Kavanaugh's been a part of the Federal judiciary for over 12 years, with a multitude of superior judgements and positive endorsements form all sides. His 'temperament' was only mentioned after all other accusations failed. Utter bullocks. ANY human being with a spine would be angry and upset over the slanders he and his family was forced to endure.

The way leftists and spineless centrists are telling it, Judge Kavanaugh, now Justice Kavanaugh, has sole power to legislate from the bench. Do they not understand that Kavanaugh represents but 1/9th of the SCOTUS? He can no more rule as a dictator than can Trump, or Obama before him.

Is it a "conspiracy theory" when there is an actual conspiracy? Ford's allegation would have gone no where without Feinstein and the Democrat's active co-operation and management. Certainly, that the allegations were made at the end of the process in order to delay things until the new Congress rather than at the start when they could have been investigated at leisure is indicattive of this.

Remember, the other four Republican judges are neo-Nazi Christian fundamentalists as well so Kavanaugh gives them and the Sith Emperor Trump free rein to turn the United States into The Handmaid's Tale or at least the Third Reich 2.0.

I suspect that was just some minor virtue signalling on Kavanaugh's part. Saying you don't doubt she was assaulted but just mistaken about her assaulter plays better than calling her an outright liar. There's little to corroborate that any assault happened at all and being able to act convincingly is not that rare a talent.

Anyone that thinks Dr. Ford's testimony had anything to do with sexual abuse and/or survivors of sexual abuse is delusional.

The voice fry is one pointer..."

At least one body language expert says otherwise about the 'voice fry' - that Ford's was acting.

There are other emotions than anger and rage - you know?

I believe she was assaulted. Kavanaugh has said that he believes she was assaulted also. I also believe she has some form of face blindness

I believe something happened as well, and I said it a couple of weeks ago, I don't know about "face blindness" though. I do think she purposely conflated an experience she had in her late teens that took place in the mid 1980s* with a time, early 1980s in her early to mid teens, so that Kavanaugh could plausibly have participated.

 

*Reportedly this was the first version of her truth, that some kind of assault happened during the mid-1980s while she was a late teen. The problem though is that would have put Kavanaugh 300 miles away in New Haven, Connecticut making interaction between them implausible.

And which ones would you have shown if called a rapist, liar, and drunk for partisan political advantage?

Temperament eh? So all SEVEN of the prior FBI background checks he underwent in his decade++ long career as well as his performance as a Judge, Presidential staffer and carrier of 'The football' (Dubya's Nuclear codes) mean nothing to ya? Not to mention, the attempt to smear him as a full fledged felon--don't you think that would irk a fellow more than a little bit? I would think you'd be more upset by the attempt to make a political football out of 'due process in the court of law'.

Trump's character showed through, never give up, never surrender. I can't think of a single Republican in the past who would not have crumbled in the face of the onslaught of truly evil people in this nomination. Trump is the big winner, the left lost. Our Republic survives a little longer, we can never give an inch to the Left for they will destroy everything. https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/10/06/nolte-winners-and-losers-of-the-kavanaugh-confirmation/

I know what he means. Hence my wonder at how the term became so twisted.

Because the identitarian, radical leftist have hollowed out the traditional liberal dnc and are using it like a suit.

 

It's why we have to point out "classical liberal" as a term to deconflict the term. Classical Liberals like Thomas Jefferson are 'the worst sort of people ever' according to modern American Liberals.

I think it splits the baby neatly. It plays to her claim of being abused, and notes the utter lack of corroboration on the sketchily recalled events.

it's what I would say were I in the public eye. There 's no upside to saying she's lying about this as well and would make one seem unsympathetic to victims of abuse.

Granted, though it wouldn't have mattered to you, right?

 

 

Why not. I found the smear campaign unbearable and to be honest it has no influence on my life, whatever the outcome, there is a big ocean between the me and him. And granted the liberals deserved everything he said and everything they will get, but still somehow I think it was more like watching a politician than a judge. But maybe judges are different in the US.

Though according to McConnell he and Trump were preparing to rush another nominee through should the Kavanaugh vote go south.

I just wonder if they would have to kidnap a justice to put them through a ringer like Kavanaugh went through.

True, but they stood firm, and Good triumphed over evil. Thank G_d it did. The left is going to get people killed I fear, and what happens then?

If the vote had gone south it wouldn't have mattered who they shackled and brought before the senate, the Dems wouldn't have allowed their confirmation either.

Goresuch and Kavanaugh were two years apart at Georgetown Prep. They ran in the same social circles and Gorsuch was actually the same year at GP as Ford was at Holton Arms.

 

I don’t believe the rumor that there was a similar letter from Ford about Gorsuch when he was nominated. There’s absolutely no evidence of it.

 

I DO believe that, had the nominations been reversed, Kavanaugh for Scalia and Gorsuch for Kennedy, the same exact scenario (let Kavanaugh pass, go after Gorsuch with the charges) would have come to pass.
