(Senator) Merkley seeks injunction to stop Kavanaugh vote

Hey Dumbass, Thats not how this works

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) on Wednesday announced that he's seeking an injunction in federal court designed to stop a final vote on Brett Kavanaugh, asserting an obstruction of his constitutional duty to advise and consent on nominees.

Merkley's filing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes as Senate Republicans vow to push ahead with a vote on President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee in the coming days — and hours before a landmark hearing slated with Christine Blasey Ford, who has alleged a decades-old sexual assault by Kavanaugh.

Another example of an Elected Moron who doesn't know or care about the Constitution. The Judiciary will not interfere with the Legislative Branch when its doing its Constitutional Duty. If he wants to Vote No on Kavanaugh he can ...that's the extent he can voice his dissent

Christine Blasey Ford believes an untruth (Some good Legal Anaysis)

All four people allegedly at the party deny it, but Ford has convinced herself it happened based on her professional understanding of how the brain saves traumatic events.

Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony is completed. Brett Kavanaugh comes later.

Here are some quick takes (in no particular order):

1. Republicans hiring THIS prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, to question Ford was a mistake. Hiring an outside attorney to do the questioning was fine, and hiring a women to do that was politically expedient. But Mitchell was meandering, as if she had several hours to question the witness when she had only about an hour, broken up into 5-minute segments. Mitchell elicited important information, some of which poked substantial holes in Ford’s story. For example, Ford over the last three months has given different accounts as to the year or time frame, how many people were present, and so on.

But this was a political event and Mitchell didn’t try, even respectfully, to score political points. Meanwhile, Democrats turned their 5-minute segments into made-for-TV and made-for-the-internet soundbites. This is what happens when Republicans run scared.

2. Ford believes what she is saying, and that has a lot to do with her profession of being a clinical psychologist. She volunteered a number of times that her memory is certain as to the trauma because — in her clinical assessment — such traumas are preserved by the way the brain works. That was a convenient explanation for why she remembers the minutes of the alleged assault, but very little in the time before and after the alleged assault.

I think Ford has convinced herself she experienced what she experienced, but the need to inject psychological terminology makes me conclude that it is a memory that, while believed, is not necessarily the way the rest of us remember things.

3. Ford has many anxieties that contributed to her claimed PTSD and fears, but those are off limits because she won’t share the therapist notes she showed to WaPo. She admitted there were other “contributing” factors, but fell back on her clinical psychological analysis to dismiss the other factors.

4. Every person Ford identified as being at the party has signed sworn statements that it didn’t happen, including Ford’s female friend who supposedly was there that night. Those are facts that are not dependent on what Ford subjectively believes. She happens to believe something that is not true, which is why she might avoid a polygraph result reflecting deception.

5. Ford’s lawyers and Democrats repeatedly lied to Republicans on the committee. Ford’s lawyers said she wasn’t available to testify earlier because she is afraid of flying. But the testimony was that she flew to D.C. earlier in the summer and regularly flies on airplanes, including long flights overseas. Republicans offered to travel to interview her in California, which offer was rejected, but she didn’t even know it had been offered. Just more cases of Republicans on the committee being played for fools.

6. Ford going public was much more planned than we were led to believe. She hired lawyers and took a polygraph during late July and early August. Why do that if not expecting to go public? That really wasn’t pursued.

7. Ford basically accused her best friend Leland Keyser of submitting a false statement about the party not happening. She said Leland has health problems and just wanted her lawyer to take care of it. Mitchell never followed up on this bombshell. Incompetent.

That Ford turned on her lifelong friend this way says perhaps more about Ford’s credibility than anything else that happened today.

8. Brett Kavanaugh is going to have to argue his case during his testimony, because the prosecutor Republicans hired does not appear to view that as part of her job.


9. 30,000 foot view: I don’t think Ford did any more damage on substance to Kavanaugh than existed prior to the testimony. So if Republicans goal was to first do no harm, it might have been accomplished. I doubt many minds were changed. I can’t imagine this changed Trump’s mind. The minds that also matter are Collins, Murkowski, Flake and Corker, and probably 2-3 Republican Senators who have not been heard from. Just two minds need to be changed to sink Kavanaugh.

False Allegation against Kavanaugh passed to Judiciary Committee by Senator

On Tuesday morning, a false allegation of rape launched against Judge Brett Kavanaugh was phoned into the office of Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), which passed it on to the Judiciary Committee. On Wednesday, only hours after the media jumped on the story, the man reportedly responsible for the allegations recanted his accusations, tweeting, “Do (sic) everyone who is going crazy about what I had said I have recanted because I have made a mistake and apologize for such mistake.”

Both The Hill and CNN ran with the story. The allegations stated that a rape occurred on a boat in 1985, and that a "close acquaintance" of a Rhode Island constituent "was sexually assaulted by two heavily inebriated men she referred to at the time as Brett and Mark." That was an apparent reference to Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge. The apparent constituent of Whitehouse’s who made the phone call stated he realized that Kavanaugh was one of the men allegedly involved "when he saw Kavanaugh's high school yearbook photo on television over the weekend.”

When the Judiciary Committee asked Kavanaugh about the Rhode Island allegation, he responded, "I was not in Newport, haven't been on a boat in Newport. Not with Mark Judge on a boat, nor all those three things combined. This is just completely made up, or at least not me. I don't know what they're referring to.”

Sure enough, as Heavy reported, “A Twitter account using the name Jeffrey Catalan has issued a recantation after a Senate transcript of an interview with Brett Kavanaugh indicated that the person with the Catalan Twitter account made one of the new accusations against Kavanaugh that were widely reported by major news outlets on September 26, 2018.” Heavy added, “The Senate Judiciary Committee redacted Catalan’s name and Twitter handle in the publicly released transcripts of its interviews with Kavanaugh. However, the transcripts that detail his accusation to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) contain verbatim quotes of tweets that still appeared on Catalan’s page as of September 26.”

Sheldon Whitehouse deserves a kick in the Balls

Kavanaugh is Killing it

Watching Judge Kavanaugh’s statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I think he is killing it. He demonstrates indignation and appropriate emotion, every but as much as Ford. He has rightly focused his remarks on the game against him played by the Democrats. Here he has nailed it. He called them out in every respect. He omitted only their names, but we know who they are. The truth shall set us free.

I will add further observations to this post later when he completes his statement and takes up questions

Daily Caller notes Blasey Ford fear of flying

Despite Dr. Ford's reported fear of flying (which was her excuse for not being able to testify in a timely manner before the Senate Judiciary) she admits she traveled to DC in a plane.— The Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) September 27, 2018

Caught red handed!
