Actually, he is a disappointment to constitutional "conservatives." He is proving to be more of a "centrist" than a textualist.

Just curious, which SCOTUS Judges do you consider politically neutral?

i know. the liberal myth of the angry white male. in their minds, it’s not possible to have a principled disagreement with them. it must be based on some kind of character flaw.

How is it a liberal myth when you constantly claim all liberals do this and all liberals do that? So you can't have a disagreement without insulting everybody who has the opposing viewpoint. look at Post 31. That is typical of your posting Style

investigate what? a 25 year old
party where most of the kids were drunk, where the victim is t saying anything happened, and where one accuser who just happems
to be well connected to the Clintons, says Kavanaugh was pushed. no one is saying kavanaugh did anything.

and the democrats running for president aren’t asking for an investigation. they’re saying kavanaugh should be impeached. you’d think a prosecutor and a harvard law professor would have a cursory understanding of
jurisprudence. Nope.

how traumatized can one be, if one chooses to go to a naked party with drunk college kids, and someone’s private’s touch your hand. i’m sorry, thus isnt from the screenplay of The Accused. how many times
did you go to an alcohol fueled party in college and not have physical contact with anyone there. she’s lucky she didn’t get gang raped putting herself in that idiotic situation. there might have been a Kennedy there, in which case she’d be swimming with the fishes.

that is a spectacular argument in favor of judges that only conservatives appoint. put personal politics aside
and do what the constitution says, whether you happen to like it or
not.

using your litmus rest, sotomayor could never have gotten confirmed, she was routinely overturned
by higher judges.

worth noting that the “credible witness” to this event, also isnt speaking, and didn’t talk to the NYT. they spoke to friends of his, who claim he told them that he witnessed this.

so it’s a second hand account, that at a drunken
naked party 25 years ago, that someone pushed kavanaughs private’s into a woman’s hand, and the woman won’t corroborate.

this is an absolute joke.

We report tonight the real bombshell: Christine Ford’s close HS friend (who Ford says was at the party when Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her) said Ford’s story is not believable and told the FBI Ford’s allies pressured her, threatened her with a smear campaign to say otherwise.

Keyser told the writers, “I was told behind the scenes that certain things could spread about me if I didn’t comply,”

Not only did Christine Blasey Ford’s key witness and friend — Leland Keyser — state that she didn’t recall the party where Ford claimed she was assaulted, she also says she doesn’t remember “any others like it.”

“I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

keyser shared texts with the fbi, from kavanaugh opponents who threatened to smear the single mom, claiming she was a druggie, if she didn’t back the allegations against kavanaugh.

this is part tds, part warning to any other conservative judges out there to think twice about trying for the supreme court, because they’ll
never stop trying to sink their teeth into you.

funny thing, is kavanaugh has shown to be less
conservative than many would like.

And whose supporters issued death threats to Ford, that she shared with the FBI?
Posted from my iPhone/Mobile device

Senate Republicans may both fear Trump and use him for their own ends, but they have very little love for him. Almost all of them would privately vote for an act-of-God scenario where Trump drops dead — not violently but peacefully, without suffering, ideally surrounded in his bed by a loving retinue of Fox News personalities, Ivanka, and perhaps a tasteful array of magazine covers bearing his likeness. The trouble for the Republican Senate has always been how they get from here to there.

you got me. because right up until
this moment, i had always said that all republicans are wonderful
people. i never said otherwise. nope.

Paul, our politics has gotten much uglier since the left turned on Bush. It got worse with Obama, and much worse with Trump, we’ve never seen anything like this.

The latest kavanaugh claims are a joke, and the NYT made fools of themselves for editing the story the way they did. journalism doesn’t get much more yellow than that.

No, but the converse does not make Keyser's memory or lack thereof true or false.

The Supreme Court nominee has been adamant that while he enjoys beer and perhaps at time drank “too many,” it was never to the point of passing out, blacking out, or even causing slight lapses in memory.

He grew “belligerent and aggressive” as a drunk, according to Chad Ludington, one of Kavanaugh’s former classmates.

Liz Swisher, another former Yale classmate “There’s no problem with drinking beer in college. The problem is lying about it.”

In 2004, Kavanaugh said he did not “personally” handle the nomination of Judge William Pryor, who currently sits on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals (which covers Alabama, Georgia, and Florida).

Kavanaugh, who worked in Bush’s White House counsel office in the early 2000s, distanced himself from Pryor’s nomination in 2004, saying during his own confirmation hearing, “No, I was not involved in handling his nomination.”

Between 2002 and 2003, Kavanaugh is included in several emails referencing the Pryor nomination. In one exchange between Kavanaugh and White House aide Kyle Sampson, Kavanaugh is asked: “How did the Pryor interview go?” He responded, “Call me.” In another email chain, Kavanaugh is included in a conversation about a conference call to “coordinate plans and efforts” around Pryor.

There’s also the case of the improperly obtained Democratic files, detailing strategies for opposing Bush’s judicial nominees in the 2000s, which a Republican Senate aide circulated with White House staff.

In 2004, Kavanaugh claimed that he had never seen “any documents that appeared ... to have been drafted or prepared by Democratic staff members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.” But an email between the Republican staffer and Kavanaugh showed him receiving some of the documents.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Kavanaugh directly: “Are Ramirez’s allegations about you true?”

Kavanaugh responded with a little slithery lawyer speak, “None of the witnesses in the room support that. If that had happened, that would have been the talk of campus in our freshman dorm.” And apparently interviewing his dorm-mates is not worth doing.

Senate Republicans may both fear Trump and use him for their own ends, but they have very little love for him. Almost all of them would privately vote for an act-of-God scenario where Trump drops dead — not violently but peacefully, without suffering, ideally surrounded in his bed by a loving retinue of Fox News personalities, Ivanka, and perhaps a tasteful array of magazine covers bearing his likeness.

What was Keyser threatened with to change her story?
Would that be impossible for the people who employed Cohen, Stone and Roy Cohn. Paid the Enquirer to buy and kill stories.

Yeah, that "appears" thing can be a large problem and can lead to a very expensive, waste of precious congressional time spent on things like Russian collusion.

It's ironic to me that lying to Congress is a crime while these reprobates that occupy those congressional seats lie to us in order to get elected, and when they win, they continue to lie to us nearly every time they speak politically. And, if we support them, we understand and accept why they have to lie, just so long as they do it in a skillful, polished, sophisticated manner.

It went right over your head.

So, who successfully threatened her?

Could it possibly be the person or people who employed Cohen, Stone and Roy Cohn. Paid the Enquirer to buy and kill stories.

Classic Trickster move
