  • Kavanaugh accuser wants to talk to Senate; terms up in air

    The entire committee episode is easily the biggest comedy production of the past decade. An eighty-five year old woman (Feinstein) heading up the pro-Ford story...’Spartacus’ Booker doing his act...a number of journalists talking about slut-behavior without uttering the word ‘slut’...the year book for Ford’s class yanked from public sales...and suddenly people concerned about trampy girls being alcoholics?

    Isn’t part of this delay to ensure her conversation is the number one topic of the weekend, and it would serve the public more....if they delayed her another four days...to a Monday?

    Well, I think these boys you are referring to...that might have ‘been involved’ with Ford....don’t really want to come up now at age 55....married (happily), and admit that they engaged with a slutty teenage girl on numerous occasions. I think most successful guys would avoid this topic.

    Go over to a typical high school today and bring up the topic and I’ll bet that the 100 male seniors will privately point out five young ladies from the junior and senior classes who’ve done more than thirty guys in two years.

    They went to different private schools. One friend of Fords (I noticed that story from yesterday) says that she was unaware of Ford having ‘ever’ met Kavanaugh, period, during this period of high school years.

    I think if you brought in ten retired FBI guys and suggested some investigation...all ten would start laughing. There is no federal crime. This is from 36 years ago. You’d have to start each conversation with potential witnesses by asking about their drinking habits or drug habits as a 16-year old kid. Then you’d encounter that one single guy who might admit that he would show up at these parties pretending he was Kavanaugh and at least fifteen different young ladies think they slept with him. It’s a five-star circus event.

    I’ll add this one observation. A lot of people sitting at home....have to encounter and mess with this private party business with booze and drugs....almost weekly with their teenage kids. These people all know various young ladies who’ve had forty-odd guys by age eighteen. So for the Senate with a bunch of sixty and seventy year old men and women to make this into some hyped-up situation from 36 years ago....well, why won’t they waste time talking about the same business going on today....with the promiscuity, drugs and booze being commonplace?

    Yeah, it sounds like if she’s leaving the US....it’s Canada, Mexico, Honduras, Belize, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador or Panama.

    Usually people go and blab like this....never go and do it. It’s like people who talk all the time about moving to Florida and most never do it.

    Good story, but false. No dopey medical professional would confess something like this.

    Now, I will admit that I had a dentist for eight years who started up a chat about year two in the middle of a drilling job....that he was pro-Bill/Hillary Clinton. My blood pressure shot up quickly, but he was very good about pain control and it ended thirty minutes later. I decided to stick with him.

    You can go and make an announcement on Tuesday that Trump will show up in Huntsville on Saturday, and via social media....there will be a minimum of 15,000 people lined up for the show. You can go and look at tags, and there’s a mix of Alabama, Tenn and Georgia folks showing up. His people could even go and charge $10 entry fee, and I think most everyone would pay it.

    Are they using the Puerto Rico hurricane dead-people model?

    You can’t prove the 11-million number, nor the 22-million number. You can’t even prove how many dead people are registered to vote.

    Well...if she were an alcoholic for most of her life, I don’t see this make-over helping much (course, Hillary always benefited).

    For this type of episode, you need a team to assemble the 300-likely questions, then you work to develop the answers to project out, and then you bring the ‘talker’ in to train. For a project like this? I would take a guess that you need at least two weeks. Maybe if they’d started in early August, this would have worked. But I don’t think they were prepared or else they figured that Kavanaugh would fold already.

    Maybe they have been working with her and she has trouble with their scenario/script, and the ‘truth’? If you were a lifetime alcoholic, this would be a demanding session to sit through.

    Oh I think it would agree with some 35 to 50 year old woman who craves some relationship fantasy. At the end of the episode I watched...I was sitting there and thinking they need some Trump-character to show up and just fix everything. If all of the characters were as miserable as they seem in the story....most folks would get into some revolution or civil war...but they all seem to want to live miserable lives.

    The last decent and competent leader that Iran had was Mohammad Mosaddegh...deposed and jailed in 1953. The US and UK helped to dump the guy, and install their puppet (the Shah). From that point on, the clock was ticking and built to deliver some crazed religious nutcase. The Iranians have been waiting for well over sixty-five years for qualified leadership.

    I’ve been able to make it through one single episode of the Handmaid’s Tale, and will just say that it’s a pretty marginalized Sci-Fi-related story that just doesn’t deliver. The one I watched had something to do with Canada, and that that was the only place where things seemed to run normally in this ‘modern’ world.

    If you took Dallas, Planet of the Apes, Jane Austen novels, and blended them into a three-quarter speed sci-fi soap opera....this is the result. Frankly, I think the audience is about 90-percent women (under the age of forty).

    Gab’s hook is that there is no advertising and they are moving more toward a subscription service. A year ago, they hinted that they expected to be ‘blackballed via the banks, etc....so they were moving toward some cryptocurrency deal. I would suggest that come the summer of 2020, with the election business in full swing and absolute negativity about Facebook...Gab will be the alternate platform to use.

    In this case, the electric company could suggest that it’ll stop producing within the state, and do a shut-down. So then the plant in the next state over will say fine....we will sell you the power you desire...at 15-percent above the normal rate...returning the profit to it’s shareholders. After the Virginia folks generally accept the rise in rates....you raise again in 18 months another 15-percent. You repeat this again in 18 months.

  • No Hearing; Just Vote on Kavanaugh Nomination

    pepsionice to SkyPilot

    Other than the private committee hearing offer....Grassley has offered nothing much else. It’s Monday or nothing. Kavanaugh will not be denied a seat in the room. The FBI request chatter is finished...it won’t go any further.

    I don’t think she will show up at 9:30 AM on Monday, and I suspect that they will do rollcall, someone will recommend closure and vote the committee done. Republicans will have a majority, and it’ll close out by 9:45 AM.

    I also suspect that Ford is in fragile condition and probably not ready for some ‘show’ like this. Basically, they will ask her if she shows up....how much alcohol she consumed in this period of her life, and if she blacked-out any....then turn to the hundred-plus boys that she partied with and knew in a personal way. So it’ll turn into a ‘I admit I’m a drunken-sl*t’ session. It’ll be like a Jerry Springer show and pure entertainment.

    I think the answer here is that she would have had to call the FBI every Sunday morning for three years straight to report drunken behavior and sexual liaisons with various young men from the local area from each Saturday evening. The FBI would have a 1,500 page dossier on Ford and the various/multiple assaults.

    pepsionice to Bommer

    You are correct on the five questions...which she will probably decline to answer.

    I think the committee will convene at 9:30 AM on Monday, and if she’s not in the room....they will move to adjourn within two minutes after a roll-call is wrapped up. The Democrats will demand more time...the adjournment will occur in lightning speed, and the Senate will be handed the item to vote upon by Tuesday morning. Some delays might occur, but I think by Thursday of next week....the vote will wrap up and it’s done.

    The chief problem I see....based on various accounts of her level of alcohol consumption over several years of this period, you can’t rely upon her memory in any fashion. It’s possible that she’s blacked-out several times and this lapse of memory is totally screwed up.

    The other factor playing out....for November elections, do you as a voter really want some drunken slut-tramp factor that occurred 35 years ago to influence your vote? I can’t see anyone changing their vote over this.
