There Is No Limit To The Privilege Granted To Republican Men Who Have The Liar Kavanaugh's Background

If you haven't seen it yet, you should go to Vox and look at their charting of the testimony of both Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday, with the questions of Senators (mostly Democratic) and the Republican hired gun Rachel Mitchell and the speechifying and grandstanding of Senators (mostly Republican).

They color coded the times that both Ford and Kavanaugh either clearly answered or tried to deflect or not answer questions in a way you can click on and read the passages to see it.  The color coding alone is astonishing in that it shows that at no time did Christine Blasey Ford refuse to try to answer a question or to deceive or deflect, Brett Kavanaugh constantly did all of those while testifying under oath WHILE SITTING AS A FEDERAL JUDGE. 

Brett Kavanaugh is a demonstrable liar who has lied under oath, while sitting as a federal judge.  He lied to the Senate now and in his past confirmation hearings, sometimes now he has lied about his lies at his past confirmation hearings.  Yet there are Senators, Republicans, possibly Democrats, who are still not decided about whether or not to put the liar who had an unprecedented lying, partisan tantrum at the hearing on Thursday.   His tantrum would never have gotten him anything but a boot out the door if he had been a Woman, a Latina, a Black Woman, it would certainly have gotten him the boot if he had done so while being a Democrat, even a White male Democrat who had been to prep schools and the Ivys.  Merritt Garland didn't even have to have a tantrum to not get into the door, he just had to be nominated by a prep-school-Ivy-League Black Democratic President and the same Republicans, Collins, Murkowski, Flake, etc. who are on posing on the fence over Kavanaugh didn't put up any kind of real complaint about that. 

If the FBI so much as says it can't produce conclusive evidence that Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick are telling the truth, the Republicans will vote to put the known liar and very likely sex offender on the Supreme Court. And the likes of the New York Times and CNN and ABC will treat it as too late to do anything about as he sits there attacking women and Democrats, organized labor, poor people, members of minority groups discriminated against, etc. 

This is the disgrace and shame of America.  The glaring example that we have adopted a class system as evil and destructive as that in other countries, including the one the Revolution was allegedly fought for to reject.  The privilege that our elites grant each other includes everything Brett Kavanaugh is known to have done and everything he is credibly accused of doing.


  1. Axios reports this morning Dems plan to campaign on impeaching Kavanaugh ASAP.

    1. His performance at that hearing would have gotten anyone but an entitled Republican impeached. That liar, partisan hack has been on the second most important court in the country for 12 years. That, in itself, should be enough to discredit the Court.
