The left's fulminating over Brett Kavanaugh is nothing short of insane -- and points out that no good deed goes unpunished either.

Let's remember a few things -- Bill Clinton and especially Hillary are not sitting in a federal prison right now, in all probability, due to Brett Kavanaugh.

It's been mentioned, of course, that Kavanaugh was part of the Starr investigation into the Clintons.  But who remembers Foggy Bottom and Vince Foster?

Allegedly, he committed suicide.  But to believe this you must discount the first people who came upon the body and reported two holes in him -- one bullet hole in his neck, and a second in his head.  Whichever was first either was sufficient to be fatal, with certainty, and preclude someone committing suicide from firing a second time.

The various "investigating agencies" allegedly had such horrible crime scene technique we are to believe all of the crime scene photos were so terribly overexposed as to be useless in ascertaining this after the fact.  We are also supposed to disbelieve the original account of the person who found him.  And, behind more than a bit of witness tampering and intimidating is alleged to have been..... Brett Kavanaugh.

Of course all of this was while working for Ken Starr, and it's wonderfully unbiased, untainted "investigating" that had to find something once hard, physical evidence (DNA on a blue dress in the form of President Clinton's cum) emerged that proved he had sexual contact with Lewinski.  There was no other possible explanation for how that happened other than some form of sex, so it became the blow job for the ages and ultimately impeachment proceedings predicated on perjury.  Oh, and Clinton is forever ensconced in a call-out in the pinball machine Revenge from Mars ("I'll take the stinky cigars!")

You'd think that the Democrats and Hillary in particular would be quite thankful that Brett was running interference in that manner, if indeed he did.  Someone did, but of course we never got to the bottom of that either, did we?

Of course not.

Nor will we.  It's in the past, it's a vast right-wing conspiracy, etc etc etc.

But the bodies still hit the floor, and that's a fact.

The irony of the caterwauling by the left over Kavanaugh brings a wry smile to me these days, given that it sure looks to me, in the fullness of time, that he kept their standard-bearer out of a federal prison cell decades ago.

It just goes to show you that no good deed goes unpunished, and whatever you may think of someone and their political connections and alleged "friends" in DC no such thing ever actually exists.  As soon as you're no longer useful in whatever context you're being used you're immediately wood-chipper food.  At the same time I'm supposed to believe the very same FBI can conduct an "investigation", whatever that might mean on any given day, when they can't handle properly exposing photos taken at a crime scene.  Uh huh.

Mordor on the Potomac sounds more and more accurate by the day.

Apparently it does happen:

Quote:
A woman killed three people and wounded others at a drugstore distribution center Thursday in Harford County, Maryland, before shooting herself twice, officials said.

A source close to the investigation said the woman was a disgruntled employee. She shot herself in the head in an apparent suicide attempt, but was unsuccessful so she shot herself again, the source said.

Yeah...

Did anyone else notice the exchange between him and Graham about how 'enemy combatants' are treated and that since 911, we're essentially in a state of war?

Yep. Kavanaugh's dirty secrets will be Trump's leverage, but a weaponized Kavanaugh and the potential to label anyone as 'enemy combatants' should give everyone pause.

Vince Foster was snuffed 25 years ago. I was in high school at that time and even being more newsie than your average teen I still have very faint recollection of the news around that event. Of course I've read about it much since then. Point is that with the attention span of most these days that's ancient history.

Whatever Brett may or may not have done for the Clinton's surely is never enough to get a dispensation from the anger of the left towards any white man that leans to the right of full blown socialism.

The whole Just Us System has become a sordid circus. And I really don't want to dig into this subject too deeply, because it is so sick what they have done to the three branches of government.

For those who want a good source of opinion, argument and commentary on a broad spectrum of subjects --- including the Catholic Church --- I shall provide a link to "The Thinking Housewife".

The woman is like a breath of fresh air.

A woman like her who both "thinks" and is a housewife is a rare gem, indeed.

And reading what she articulates and how classy she writes helps me to keep my gutter mouth in check --- which is a big problem for me and a sin against God.

I don't agree with everything she says, but I like the following article:

The Truth about Brett Kavanaugh:

"Brett Kavanaugh is not your friend. He is not your savior, any more than the vulgar and lying demagogue, Donald Trump, is your friend or savior. Kavanaugh is just one more lackey for an entirely creepy establishment."

Thanks again Click. Lot's of good stuff there.

I find myself whole heartedly agreeing with her commentary.

Actually I think this **** show was purposefully created to enrage the masses and hide Kavanaugh's record and legal misdealings. Someone sat down and arranged this so real questions would not be asked.

Both sides of the uniparty have trapped themselves so manufactured outrage to appeal to the mentally ill and the stupid are the best means of obfuscation of the candidate's real agenda.

The Judge Napalatino video is not very kind to Kavanaugh.


The real deep question is: what is it going to take to get someone decent? I am afraid of the answer.

No one is allowed anywhere near any position of power until and unless they have been completely compromised. If this guy gets in, he's seen how much false accusations can be rough on the furniture. He's left to just imagine what could happen if the real dirt starts getting dished out. Something like "Don't you just hate it when you wake up in the morning and the hooker is dead....?"

Judge Napalatino's video reveals something about Kavanaugh which requires a little more discussion. Growing up around a significant number of the Kavanaugh type can tell you that they are more authoritarian than right wing or conservative. as things got really bad in this country when the left took over in the late sixties as law and order and culture seemed to go the way of the Dodo bird anything that supported older authority structures or symbols like policing agencies became synonymous with the right or conservative. this bastardization of what it means to be conservative led to the worship of police, businessmen, military, disciplinarians of all types, etc. while these positions are capable of noble work and honorable behavior a reactionary stance gave them not obligation but carte blanche which results in most of the problems that we saw when they got out of control. anything supporting the country and its traditional authority structures was seen as good; they were the good guys. and the good guys always did what was right and needed the support of judges. federal prosecutor became the new white knight. this all culminated with the aftermath of 911 when federal and other local govt employees had their feeding frenzy as it was brewing for decades prior since terrorism and criminal networks were the scourge of the eighties and nineties. so many young people joined the feeding frenzy of the law enforcement growth industry and media paralleled with the hero worship in the cinema and television.

this good catholic boy comes from a tradition of blind allegiance to authority, the new conservatism, for two reasons. he comes from an ethnic group seen as outsiders that acculturated having to prove themselves to the old guard often by sucking up and his religion is very popular in dictatorial countries (see South America) as it is consistent with these values.

if he comes off as wound too tight, it is because he is. this is why these types do drink to excess often for the sake of it alone as a way of blowing off steam and temporarily freeing their minds. i have no doubt that he did nothing ****ty to this slut, however he views this trial by fire as a necessary step in fulfilling his mission to serve the power structure, not serve a higher ideal. the current ****-show eliminates any chance of discussing what he will do in the position and serves the interests that want a power structure not a constitutional republic. the slut does the authoritarians a great service and no one seems to realize it other than those who know exactly what they are doing.

his type is told to respect the police agencies not ask first if they are worthy of respect. most people do not realize that in places that seem liberal such as NYC or liberal higher education (certain law schools) run by religious orders much of life is very authoritarian and unquestioning of authority. this is the head fake.

we are living with two sides of the same coin.

are you enjoying being slow boiled like a frog?

@whitehat, you are spot-****ing-on. About 10 years ago I did some consulting work in the NE as part of an "elite" fellowship (bahaha like that means anything). Of the 50 or so "experts", I was the only non-Ivy, and one of the few from flyover country to boot. And here's the thing: I was far and away the least authoritarian of the whole group. It wasn't close, either. No one could form an opinion without referencing such-and-such "expert". Like, we couldn't have a simple discussion of policy issues without someone saying "we should bring in [insert expert here] and get their thoughts on this". It was exactly like the scene in Good Will Hunting where Will confronts the Harvard guy in the bar. What good is an education if you cannot think? Everyone spent all their energy trying to get the right answers according to their authorities.

I will also never forget the one night that one of the other members had everyone over to his apartment for a poker tournament. Everyone was drinking and gambling and smoking freely. Without thinking, I tossed a beer can in the trash. It was like bad reality TV - record scratch noise! The whole room stopped in unison and stared at me. The now dead-eyed host very steadily said "we recycle here." I had sinned! (I also finished second and left with about $50 so oh well). I moved the beer can. What I wish I had done was******in the trash can. Maybe in the next life.

And yet what we have been told, for years now, is that these people are liberated, and libertine. They are not, not by a mile. They are hard-bound to their ideologies, and therefore they genuflect to the priests of those ideologies.

Their great learning has driven them insane, to borrow a phrase.
