Oh c'mon folks....

The new Times story gives the account of a male Yale classmate of Kavanaugh named Max Stier, who alleges that Kavanaugh, at the urging of some friends, performed an obscene act while mistreating a woman at a party.

The Times reported Saturday that Stier told the FBI about the alleged incident during Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation process but the FBI did not investigate further.

The reason they didn't investigate further is that it never happened.

The alleged "victim" has said she has no memory of the incident.  While it wasn't of a "forcible rape" sort it was, as described, certainly disgusting and the person who it was allegedly done to wasn't blind-drunk at the time either. If I had something like this done to me at some party I would have remembered it 40 years later -- easily.

Oh, and read this -- it makes clear why the FBI didn't run this down.  There is nobody who could provide first-hand corroboration of this claim.  Not one person yet there were allegedly a whole bunch of people at this alleged party.

We already did this smear job during the confirmation hearings.  Now the NY Times and the leftwing hacks who know damn well Ginsburg is about to go take the eternal dirtnap are dredging back up the same bullcrap that was run before and failed to try to stack the outcome of Supreme Court decisions.

If you want to know what sort of baseless garbage half the freaking nation is willing to engage in and what that means when things get dicey in a few years from all the deficit spending colliding with reality you're seeing it right now.  These people will commit others -- millions of others -- to die right here, in this nation.

They would be willing to provoke some other nation or group of terrorist into nuking Americans to get their way.

Yep, and this smear is aimed at future nominees as much as it is Kavanaugh.

Unfortunately @Ktrosper the only way this ends is a divorce in the nation, or a dirty Civil War in which both of the extreme polar ends of each side kill one another.

The latter is probably 10% of each side -- so we're talking 30 million dead people here, or five times, roughly, the Holocaust -- or, to put another perspective on it, somewhere around 1/2 to 1/3rd of the TOTAL WWII death toll -- and approaching ONE HUNDRED TIMES the casualties the United States took in that war.

The system simply doesn't work if one side won't acknowledge the results of an election. It takes both sides to make it function and one side to break it.

When the truth came out that the witch that accused Kavanaugh was doing it to smear any future votes on abortion, then the FBI should have immediately opened an formal investigation and dragged her in for real questioning. The left is so far out of control because it seems that they are being protected at every corner when they commit these crimes.
I don't believe that there is anyway to bring this country back together. The left along with big tech and social media daily attack the truth. Every time another accusation comes up, the candidates on the left grab it and pound the lies everywhere they go. Their is such a large part of this country that is functionally illiterate, that they believe anything that these clowns say.
We really do need a cleansing in this county. We are spiraling towards hell right now.

It is my opinion that in some ways the system is working exactly they way the swamp wants it to. We have cooperation, selling hard core drugs and setting people up to become full blown addicts. We have the hollywood people bribing and stealing so their kids can be placed at the front of the line. We have one of the most notorious (If not heinous) criminals of this century commit suicide at the exact moment all the systems in place to protect the likes him, failed.

Now bare with me a moment on this.

If you paint a face on cooperate America it is a white face. If you paint a face on the hollywood people, it would be a white face. And if you paint a face on Epstein and the vile freaks who hung out with them, it too would be white.

Did you or I or ANYONE we know commit ANY of these crimes - Not even close. Yet guilt can be an amazing thing. Not you specifically as a person, but in a group or herd setting. How many people do we know that we can have this type of conversation with them on a one to one basis, but once anyone else shows up, especially if that person is of a darker skin color, the conversation shifts and we become concerned about "offending" that person.

Cooperate America is teaching our children about the evils of "white privilege" hollywood is teach our children about the evils of Patriarchy. And our government is teach us that even Rich White Men can't be protected. So to appease our white guilt we give up our place in line to those of a darker skin tone then us. We allow our tax dollar to be used on worthless social programs "for those in need" and we cheer on Beto when ihe is screaming about raping of our Constitution.

Besides Market-Ticker, please name one other voice that is proclaiming how wrong this type of behavior is. Personally I content the system is working EXACTLY how the left and SJW want it to, people are too cowed, too afraid, too full of guilt to state what they know is true. And if we can not speak the truth, how can we act upon it?

It appears the left and the SJW i.e. The System has pushing the First Amendment juuuuuuusssssssssttttttt about as far into the corner as they can without invoking true and actual conflict and this is why they are ramping up their desire to rid us of the Second Amendment.

That side wont acknowledge the results of the election because we have an army of idiots who currently believe they are doing the right thing and the more they can suppress YOUR God Given Rights and cow you into believing you are somehow guilty for the acts of corporate America the better for them.

"a dirty Civil War" - and then some..

Yeah, there's going to be some diabolical tactics going down in the upcoming "dirty civil war"... You know, crazy ****, like, for example, some joker might just build a custom-made flame thrower (which is really easy to do for anybody with just a little mechanical aptitude) and mount it on a tricked-out bulldozer which they can operate remotely. Just imagine the possibilities? Nobody needs the the corrupt courts and $400 per hour judges during during a "dirty civil war". So somebody will undoubtedly send fourth the bulldozers and level and burn the court(s).. right along with some other government ****..

Hey, have you seen Jerry's latest video? He has a cool flame thrower?

Well, at least if a terrorist sends a nuke over they will most likely hit a big city like New York or LA. Those places are mostly full of leftist. So no real loss.

Just sit back and enjoy the decline...because it won't get any better than what we have now.

As far as a flame throw goes, you really need nothing more than something flammable and a lighter.

The MSM narrative for the past few years is ALL GUNS are evil, but they are especially focused on Big'O scary rifles and calling them names they are not. And because they are selling to the public that only nut jobs own guns, many people falsely believe only nut jobs will defend their usage.

While a real nut with a squeeze bottle full of kerosene could easily walk through the mall, a concert, just about any venue leaving a trail to set ablaze. What if the nut job picked just one victim, it truly doesn't matter who, pours the entire content of the flammable liquid on someone in a crowed and set that person on fire. Now put an actual flame thrower in that crazy persons hands while good men have decided their only viable option is to remain on the sideline and places like CVS, Walmart and the likes become fertile ground for attackers.

When we reach the point of no return is anybodies guess. But it certainly appears we are headed that way.

Karl, I'm curious about your thoughts on the Saudi oil attack. Somebody seriously underestimated the military capability of these cave dwelling Houthis. These were TARGETED AND MASSIVE attacks. Shock and awe. Who has the ability to do that?

If Iran can do this, they are way above what anybody gave them credit for. Are these Russian and Chinese weapons systems on display? Because other than Israel, nobody in the region has missile targeting capability beyond WWII level -- i.e. point, shoot and hope.

I already wrote a Ticker on this....

Something like this isn't that hard to do -- especially if the Saudis thought they were taking pictures instead of being flying bombs.

UAVs are not all THAT complicated, and putting explosives in one to hit a "soft" target is easy. Now going through plate steel or other material designed to resist an explosion is hard, but an oil refinery is not designed for that. All you need there is some explosives with some sort of contact fusing (very easy) and a drone big enough to lift the charge, which ain't very big.

Now if the Saudis thought these were armed, tried to shoot them down and MISSED, now we have something else. Or if they tried to intercept them and FAILED. But so far there's no evidence that took place.

"When we reach the point of no return is anybodies guess."

@MangyMutt

True; however, some people's guesses are more educated than others. I do wholeheartedly agree that nobody knows the future down to the day or the hour.

And nobody really knows whether or not the flamethrowers come out or the crop dusting planes deliver a deadly payload over some human-parisite infested courthouses or a souped-up drone does a Kamikaze dive right into some soft Marxist target ...

What I do know is there are lots and lots of possibilities. And I'm personally not sticking my neck out to save some Marxist prick from any of those possibilities.

Personally, I'm hoping for Mother Nature to step in and rule in Her "Supreme Court of Justice". I'm hoping the Lloyd's of London report on the worst case scenario of a solar fare event is proven correct. https://www.lloyds.com/news-and-risk-insight/risk-reports/library/natural-environment/solar-storm

I hope the scientists who examined ice from two core samples taken from Greenland are correct in that they noted a spike of radioactive beryllium-10 and chlorine-36 about 2,610 years ago. This matches prior work examining tree rings that suggested a spike of carbon-14 about the same time. Which probably means that a ****ing "unimaginable" solar flare unlike any ever previously recorded (including the Carrington Event) has hit Earth at least once and probably many times. Are the dendrologists, astrophysicists and geologists correct in their conclusions?

Nobody knows for sure.

Is The EMP Commission correct in its threat assessment? http://www.empcommission.org/

Nobody knows for sure until it happens. And, frankly, I'd rather see it happen than see America become a totally Marxist country...

John Adams said:

Quote:
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.


Obviously the Democrats think their only path to political power and victory is using lies from dishonest people to smear their opponents.

Reading Adams' quotes makes me think he had had a crystal ball to the future. In reality he was very well read, understood history, the short comings or human beings, and was not afraid to speak up about it.

A couple more:

Quote:
There is nothing I dread so much as the division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our constitution.


Quote:
There are two ways to conquer and enslave a country. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.


Please tell me we aren't witnessing the destruction of our Republic by the elected officials and power elites of this country.

There is plenty of blame to go around. I dont entirely blame the left. This could be shut down in a hot minute if the right and sane moderates got off their asses. No violence. No protests or marching.

If half the population,

1) Refused to send their kids to college, refused to cosign loans. The universities would collapse.
2) Declared ch7 banko, and then one spouse stays home with the kids that would hit the banks and tax revenue
3) Stopped eating ****, start preparing meals at home, from scratch and started walking 5 miles a day. This would destroy big pharm, medical system, junk food producers.
4) Multiple generational living. This would crash the housing market.

Hell, you would really only need 25% that isnt already doing the above. And yet conservatives and sane moderates are still sending their kids to college. Still dual income. Still eating crap. Still trying to grab one last sip of the (now) toxic american dream. Their heads are buried in the sand. Are they waking up? Yes. Many are. But they dont know what to do. They are overwhelmed with so much diversion and disinformation, they just shut down. They are trying to keep afloat by dog paddling, and are to the point of mental exhaustion. Except for a small percent of tenacious individuals.

As for breaking apart peacefully? Wasnt that kind of the purpose of the individual states? If you didnt like your state you could leave it? But federal government encroached on states rights, and now we have this mess. And breaking apart will change nothing. The marxist left will continue its onward march until sane people refuse to participate.

I have a theory. The Borg didnt originate in the delta quadrant. They originated here on earth.
