Kavanaugh, drunk, party boy and confirmed liar under oath for the SC

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

When a nominee is this polarizing, might be time for a new nominee.

Nope. Bret lied last week,
We don't know that for sure. An investigation is shortcoming. If he lied, then it goes from there
We do know that for sure. He mischaracterized his drinking and hard-partying ways, painting himself almost as a "goody two-shoes." Numerous people who knew him at the time have publicly disagreed.

I don't think what a person did in high school is necessarily applicable for a job consideration at age 50-something. He might have started with something like (condensed version) "I was a hard-partying teenager in high school, and certainly if I had it to do over again I would conduct myself differently. I don't recall ever meeting Dr. Ford, nor do I recall an incident similar to what she described. However, if I did anything that harmed anyone, I sincerely regret it."

But a flat denial of what his life was during that time, coupled with a level of rage and disrespect he wouldn't tolerate in his own court pretty much indicates he's still the same guy he was in high school.

Brett Kavanaugh got into a college bar fight after seeing UB40

I can see it after a thrash metal or cowboy music show, but it takes a seriously aggressive drunk to turn a UB40 concert into a reason to fight.

Not being a seriously die-hard con or lib, I don't know. I ceased delving into politics several years ago. And I never spent every waking moment gushing over some political figure while surfing the web looking for poop to smear on some opposing figure.
We'll let the chips fall where they may. I've stated my piece.

... Whatever one thinks of the sexual assault allegations, Kavanaugh remains a serial liar (under oath!) and anti-American extremist.
More Yale classmates come forward claiming Brett Kavanaugh has been lying

Kudos, though I'm not sure what it takes to sway the GOP.

Kavanaugh: 31 Lies and Counting

The Unbearable Dishonesty of Brett Kavanaugh
Interesting, thanks. There are some serious questions floating around about how thorough the FBI is being.

Text messages suggest Kavanaugh wanted to refute accuser's claim before it became public
A former classmate of the Supreme Court nominee has reached out to the FBI but hasn't received a response.


Leaving aside matters of opinion, if some of the hard evidence about Kavanaugh that's appeared in the media is not in the FBI report, GOP Senators may feel they have the political cover to vote to confirm.

The petition to Sen. Jeff Flake reads:

"Brett Kavanaugh has repeatedly lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee. You have said that lying would be disqualifying. Publicly confirm your no vote on his confirmation to the Supreme Court."

So Leo, why are you having a hard time defending Kavenaugh on his own merits instead of having only "butwhatabout..."
Again, I'm not defending Kavanaugh. I'm defending the principle of the 14th. Amendment.

And you never held the opinion during the O. J. murder trial that he was guilty?

And I suppose that you now support his innocence?

Definitely doesn't look like they will force him to face a lie detector


As Bret ruled the FBI has the right to do when someone is suspected of lying.

According to SPLC these are the swing votes:

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)
Phone: (202) 224-2523

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ)
Phone: (202) 224-4521

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV)
Phone: (202) 224-3954

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
Phone: (202) 224-6665

There had been a couple of wavering Dems besides Manchin, but I guess they're now anti-Kavanaugh. So, it comes down to getting Manchin and 2 Repubs to vote 'No', or losing Manchin and getting all 3 Repubs to vote 'No'. It remains a long shot, but a month ago there didn't seem to be any doubt.
Planned Parenthood still thinks that Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) is a question mark. It's asking us to ask our friends in these states to make the calls.

Are we really going to have a SC justice forever to be called Boof Kavanaugh?

Will he ever rule (vote) unfavorably toward trump?

Will trump call him Boof, if he does?

Will we have a Boof Kavanaugh thread?

Will spell check automatically suggest Kavanaugh after I type Boof ? Why yes it certainly does.

Planned Parenthood still thinks that Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) - No. :thumbup: - is a question mark. It's asking us to ask our friends in these states to make the calls.
So, it comes down to Collins and Manchin. Either they both vote 'No', possibly tomorrow, or he's confirmed.

Never mind, that was based on what I caught a glimpse of on the TV news. At 10:36 AM there was:
Question: On the Cloture Motion (Motion to Invoke Cloture Re: Brett M. Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States )
Nomination Description: Brett M. Kavanaugh, of Maryland, to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
Vote Counts:
YEAs 51
NAYs 49
https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/ ... vote=00222
Collins and Manchin both voted 'YEA'. Final vote is tomorrow.

Protests tomorrow, so far:

My guess: No violence at all and Leo Lyons is just being a Henny Penny. Women's, civil liberties and green groups rarely get violent and I'm unaware of violence over any SCOTUS pick, ever.
