Closing Thought–05Oct18

This Judge Brett stuff has gotten out of hand……and in all that time Trump was silent on his usual brand of of bullying toward the women in Brett’s early life….(did not last long after all)

But of course this civility could not last… just could not……

As President Trump exited the White House for a flight Tuesday, he spoke with reporters on the South Lawn about the topic you’d expect: Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the allegations against him. Some standout lines, per Time, the AP, and the Hill:

  • “You can be an exemplary person for 35 years and then somebody comes and they say ‘you did this or that,’ and they give three witnesses, and the three witnesses at this point do not corroborate what she was saying. It’s a very scary situation where you’re guilty until proven innocent. … That is a very, very difficult standard.”
  • “It is a very scary time for young men in America, when you can be guilty of something you’re not guilty of.”
  • “What’s happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice. … You could be somebody that was perfect your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something. Doesn’t necessarily have to be a woman … but somebody could accuse you of something and you’re automatically guilty, but in this realm you are truly guilty until proven innocent. That’s one of the very, very bad things that’s taking place right now.”
  • As for what kind of a time it is for women, “Women are doing great,” he replied when asked if he had a message for them.

CNN sees parallels between Trump’s statements and comments Donald Trump Jr. made in a Monday interview with the Daily Mail in which he said that, in light of the Kavanaugh allegations, he is more afraid for his sons. “I mean, right now, I’d say my sons. I’ve got boys, and I’ve got girls. And when I see what’s going on right now, it’s scary.”

There were a couple of silly things said…..”when you can be guilty of something you are not guilty of”….think about that one!  (That Trump is such a great wordsmith, huh?)

And then there is the ‘scary times for young men today”….really men should be scared…not the women that will be treated like shit if they step up.

First young men should have nothing to worry about if they keep their wankers in their pants……kinda like the “perjury trap”….the way to avoid that is to tell the truth.

But never fear…there are enough GOPers saying all the right crap to get him confirmed.  This person does not have the temperament to handle being a Supreme Court judge….it is that simple.

  1. I agree with the condemnation of individuals like this judge, and others like him. However, I do think it is time that ‘trial by media’ should be stopped. If someone has a case, then it should be prosecuted by the police, and tried in a court of law, not on television. For every ten of those accused, there is a possibility that at least one is innocent. So lives should not be allowed to be ruined, by rumour and speculation. The same thing has been happening here for a long time now, and I have never been comfortable with it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. We are living in frightening times–all of us. Everybody’s scared. We are scared of each other. It’s a cold civil war. I really believe it.
    I don’t want anyone to be falsely accused. But the Blasse (however you spell that)Ford allegations ring true. I mean come on. She brought this up before anyone knew about this guy to her therapist. I mean, really…How hard is it to nominate a conservative Supreme Court Justice that hasn’t been accused of sexual assault? And we have two of them? Geeze, cut the guy loose and move on to the next one on the list. If they accuse him or her of sexual assault than…”Houston, we have a problem.”

    1. I agree and the problem is that the SCOTUS is now a political appointment and that is not what the Founders intended……plus the GOP has never been all that women friendly and I do not understand women that supported it…chuq

      1. I understand moderate Republicanism, but the Tea Party, nationalism, Breitbart, the far-right…No I don’t understand and I especially don’t understand how women–even weak women–could support such things.

      2. Most of this began with the election of Bill Clinton and to understand you need to understand Newt’s attacks on the presidency. chuq

      3. Oh yes. You are so right. The Republicans–crazily, idiotically–thought they had the presidency all to themselves. Bill Clinton’s presidency pissed them off and they still haven’t recovered. Of course Barack Obama rubbed their noses in it.
        I actually align with some Republican policy (I’m probably more, of a natural Republican than I am a Democrat) but their sense of entitlement, their cowardice, their intolerance and, above all, their hypocrisy makes me rail against them.
        There aren’t words to describe the contempt I have for Newt Gingrich.

      4. I guess in my later years I would be called a liberal repub….but I never much cared fir titles….today’s GOP has crapped on everything it once stood for…how can anyone with a conscience vote for these people? chuq

      5. Ha! And I classify myself as a conservative democrat. We are the disenfranchised and the sane…at least we are on the spectrum of sanity. We need a third party of contentious dissenters/castoffs of both parties. The party of the sane.

      6. I agree and I have looked into several 3rd parties…..but the problem is they need national exposure local is good national is better….chuq
