Kavanaugh Is A Liar. Period.

Maybe it was his phony act of outrage that was clearly put on to impress Tr-mp and rally the cultists who surround him. Maybe it was his flippant discussion of drinking beer and his inability to know when too many is too many, were it not for some blood alcohol chart. Maybe it was his loss of composure throughout his testimony, hiding his dark deeds behind a wall of theatrical anger, unfit for a judge at any level. Maybe it was his invoking the Clintons and a left-wing conspiracy. Maybe it was his embarrassing evasion of asking for, not to mention demanding, an FBI investigation into the matter. Or maybe, just maybe, it was the moment he swore to God he didn’t do it, didn’t do any of what he was accused of doing. After all, what Jesus-loving, Jesus-obeying Christian would do that? Consider the words of Jesus from Matthew Chapter 5:

Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

There you have it, as far as I’m concerned.

One cannot do, as Republicans all did yesterday and continue to do today, say she was credible and also defend Brett Kavanaugh. It simply isn’t possible. You cannot believe she was the victim of a sexual assault and also believe that Kavanaugh was telling the truth. Why? Because she clearly and with a sound mind named him as her attacker. To try to have it both ways, to try to say she was credible and also to either believe Kavanaugh or give him the benefit of the doubt, is logically and morally inconsistent. If you credit her and then give him the benefit of the doubt, you are necessarily saying she is either a liar or is suffering from a serious mental disorder causing her to believe a lie, causing her to publicly name Kavanaugh as her attacker in a case of a deranged mistaken identity.

Yet today, the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee ignored all decency, ignored what they saw and heard, and voted to move his nomination to the full Senate, where we will now find out whether there are any Republicans, including Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, who have even an ounce of decency left in their tanks.

After Jeff Flake’s vote this morning, my expectations are not high.

Remarks And Asides, 9/25/18

I watched this morning as the United Nations General Assembly laughed, out loud, at Tr-mp. Yeah, sure, they can laugh. They don’t have to live with him. We Americans are sentenced to more unfunny hard times.

Speaking of sentencing, Bill Cosby, newly anointed as a “sexually violent predator,” will serve three to 10 years in prison for the shameful things he did to women, in this case one woman named Andrea Constand, who trusted him. Slowly, ever so slowly, women are angry.jpgwomen are winning some major battles in the longstanding war against their dignity. The battle over Brett Kavanaugh, who should be impeached rather than given a Supreme bump in status, has yet to be decided. But women are on the rise.

Speaking of Kavanaugh, Senate Republicans are in hot pursuit of the truth surrounding the allegations against him, including the attempted rape of Christine Blasey Ford. They are such earnest truth-seekers that they have even asked O.J. Simpson to stop his hot pursuit of his ex-wife’s killer and help them find out what the hell is going on with the Boy Scout who said he didn’t drink much or ever, ever, ever have sex in high school and well beyond.

________________________________________________

It’s possible, of course, that Kavanaugh has never had sex with anyone at anytime. Never. His two lovely kids could have been, following the history of the Catholic Church he so fervently follows, immaculately conceived, which is at least as believable as the story he told on Fox last night.

________________________________________________

It turns out that not only are there at least two female accusers of Kavanaugh, there is also Kavanaugh’s old college roommate, James Roche, who said,

although Brett was normally reserved, he was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk.

As for whether Kavanaugh could have possibly used his penis, belligerently or otherwise, as a potential weapon—which Deborah Ramirez, who also went to Yale with Kavanaugh, alleges—James Roche said:

I cannot imagine her making this up. Based on my time with Brett, I believe that he and his social circle were capable of the actions that Debbie described.

For the record, Tr-mp, the world-class comedian, said Debbie Ramirez was “too messed up” to be believed and that, “This is a con game being played by the Democrats.” Nah. Not a chance. Such a con game would require a) guts and b) organization, two things Democrats often lack. So, uh, no.

________________________________________________

Image result for senate members all men on judiciary committeeIt appears that neither Ramirez nor Roche nor Mark Judge nor anyone else who could help get to the truth of the matter will appear at that sham of a hearing on Thursday, a hearing so shamefully incomplete that it won’t even feature Republican members of the Judiciary Committee making fools of themselves in front of the world. They have now hired a penis-less attorney to do the dirty work for them.

________________________________________________

And, finally, speaking of dirty, it’s not enough that Senate Republicans, at least most of them, don’t give a damn about the truth surrounding Brett Kavanaugh, now we have House right-wingers threatening to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteen-I-mean-stine. As you know, Rosensteen-I-mean-stine’s career is on life support at this point for allegedly proposing a 25th Amendment remedy for our Tr-mp problem and offering to secretly tape the disturbed subversive in the Whites’ House. At this point, Rosensteen-I-mean-stine should welcome impeachment. Maybe that would help us all get his name straight before his career dies.
