Given the complete nonsense exhibited by the Jackass Party during the Kavanaugh hearings, this utterance by Sen. Dick Durbin (D) is nothing more than expected.

The worry by the Donkeys is that SCOTUS is the only means of shoving Liberal/Progressive/Communist ideal and ideas down America’s throat. those perfidious politicians on the Left see the Trump Administration and the Control of Congress by the GOP as a death knell.

Durbin: ‘Rushing a Vote’ on Kavanaugh ‘Would Be a Historic Mistake’

“Rushing a vote on this nominee would be a historic mistake,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) tweeted Monday morning, as cable news shows led with an accusation, dating back to the early 1980s, against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Later, appearing on CNN, Durbin said Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has to make sure that Americans believe everyone is being treated fairly. [snip]

Earlier, the attorney for Christine Blasey Ford told various media outlets that her client — now a psychology professor in California — would be willing to testify publicly before the Judiciary Committee if she’s asked to do so.

It seems now she isn’t as eager to run her mouth since lying opens her up to perjury.

She’s willing to jabber about this. We find that her ‘lawyer’ is a big time donor to the DNC and

California professor, writer of confidential Brett Kavanaugh letter, speaks out about her allegation of sexual assault

Earlier this summer, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. Since Wednesday, she has watched as that bare-bones version of her story became public without her name or her consent, drawing a blanket denial from Kavanaugh and roiling a nomination that just days ago seemed all but certain to succeed.

Now, Ford has decided that if her story is going to be told, she wants to be the one to tell it. [snip]

This testimony should be amusing,IF SHE DOES COME FORWARD. It seems she can’t remember any important details. If that happened to you, you sure as hell would not forget.

Now the heat is falling on that fossil from CA. Feinstein might not get reelected; No loss there, that won’t shatter the planet.

Blowback: Feinstein Is Being Torched By Everyone For Sitting On Super Secret Kavanaugh Letter

Well, you have to give it to Democrats—they know how to execute a character assassination plot. This zero hour attack on Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who was nominated by President Trump to fill the vacancy by the retiring Anthony Kennedy, has both sides jacked up. Conservatives are rightfully suspicious of such a late night bombshell drop, while liberals hope to use this allegation to derail what they see as a threat to abortion, which is something they remind liberal women every day that they support and love. Here’s the gist. When Kavanaugh was 17-year-old, he allegedly tried to sexually assault Christine Blasey Ford, who currently works as a research psychologist and professor at Palo Alto University. Yes, she’s a Democrat. Yes, it’s odd how she wrote to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) office in the summer, a letter that the California Democrat sat on until last week. The Senate Judiciary Committee vote was slated for this Thursday—and Kavanaugh has the votes to be confirmed. This move has plunged the entire process into chaos. Kavanaugh has denied the accusation. Ford says she will testify before the committee. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), a key vote on the committee, now says the vote should be delayed until this is investigated. Guy suggested a closed-door session, with questions pitched by a nonpartisan attorney.

Now, oddly enough Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, who is anti-Trump and has no love for his supporters, says her client hasn’t said that Kavanaugh shouldn’t be confirmed. Right, and what does she expect with an allegation, which may be impossible to prove, like this. It happened over 30 years ago, by the way. The parties involved have given different accounts. Mark Judge, the second person who was allegedly in the bedroom with Kavanaugh and Ford when this supposed attempted assault took place denies this ever happened, [snip]

So, is Feinstein being rewarded for her sniper shot? I mean there willbe a hearingon this, which Democrats aren’t cooperatingin any way, shape, or form. The answer is no; she’s being hit from some in the media and her opponent in California, state Sen. Kevin de Leon. First, Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky asked plainly: what the hell are you doing, Dianne? [snip]

It must be a kick to the teeth for Dianne, though I don’t particularly care for her. She failed to get her state party’s endorsement. Now, she’s being dragged for botching the release of this information, which appears to be so long ago, again, it might not be able to be verified.  She positioned herself as the brigade commander to lead a charge against Kavanaugh. It looked like it was going to end up being the Pickett’s Charge of American politics.

Looks like Feinstein’s endometrium has dried up, taking her brains with it. A mental acuity test is in order to see if she in compos mentis.

This #MeToo garbage won’t stop until those accusing are drawn and quartered in court. Hefty fines and maybe some felony time for the liars. Whack their lawyers too for bringing unsubstantiated cases.

The #MeToo Kavanaugh Ambush

The woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of a drunken assault when both were teenagers has now come forward publicly, and on Monday it caused Republicans to delay a confirmation vote and schedule another public hearing. Yet there is no way to confirm her story after 36 years, and to let it stop Mr. Kavanaugh’s confirmation would ratify what has all the earmarks of a calculated political ambush. [snip]

The vagaries of memory are well known, all the more so when they emerge in the cauldron of a therapy session to rescue a marriage. Experts know that human beings can come to believe firmly over the years that something happened when it never did or is based on partial truth. Mistaken identity is also possible.

The Post reports that the therapist’s notes from 2012 say there were four male assailants, but Ms. Ford says that was a mistake. Ms. Ford also can’t recall in whose home the alleged assault took place, how she got there, or how she got home that evening.

This is simply too distant and uncorroborated a story to warrant a new hearing or to delay a vote. We’ve heard from all three principals, and there are no other witnesses to call. Democrats will use Monday’s hearing as a political spectacle to coax Mr. Kavanaugh into looking defensive or angry, and to portray Republicans as anti-women. Odds are it will be a circus. [snip]

It would also be a serious injustice to a man who has by all accounts other than Ms. Ford’s led a life of respect for women and the law. Every #MeToo miscreant is a repeat offender. The accusation against Mr. Kavanaugh is behavior manifested nowhere else in his life.

No one, including Donald Trump, needs to attack Ms. Ford. She believes what she believes. This is not he said-she said. This is a case of an alleged teenage encounter, partially recalled 30 years later without corroboration, and brought forward to ruin Mr. Kavanaugh’s reputation for partisan purposes.

A circus? The Jackasses are trying to toss a fourth ring in under the Big Top. All on those in the clown suits need to remember “Paybacks are a bitch!”
That will occur is McConnell can find his balls.

A call to boycott In-N-Out meets its own resistance

Anthony Grigore is a Democrat. But as he waited Thursday at an In-N-Out Burger in El Segundo for his meal, Grigore made it clear party loyalty would only go so far.

Just hours earlier, the head of the California Democratic Party called for a boycott of the famed burger chain after a public filing revealed that the company had recently donated $25,000 to the state’s Republican Party.

“Eating at In-N-Out is such a standard thing to do across California,” Grigore said, dismissing the boycott idea as a bit silly. [snip]

The dust-up over In-N-Out isn’t the first time that restaurants have faced political backlash. In 2008, there was a much-publicized boycott of famed L.A. Mexican restaurant El Coyote after it was revealed that a manager had contributed to a campaign for a proposition that sought to ban same-sex marriage in California.

Fast-food chain Chick-fil-A faced a boycott in 2012 after its president voiced opposition to same-sex marriage. [snip]

WV Meteorologist accused of fracturing anchor’s skull in fight

A meteorologist at a West Virginia TV station is accused of shoving a news anchor and fracturing her skull.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports 26-year-old Chelsea Ambriz is charged with misdemeanor battery. A criminal complaint says Ambriz, who works as an on-air forecaster for WSAZ-TV, shoved station anchor Erica Bivens on Sunday.

The complaint says Bivens suffered a ruptured ear drum and skull fracture in the fight. It doesn’t say what caused the dispute or where it happened.

Ambriz is set to appear in court Sept. 21. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer that can be contacted for comment. [snip]

Nothing like lively and active competition for face time. For her, it’s lucky he didn’t hit her with a chunk of anthracite.

Study tests whether seaweed in cattle feed reduces emissions

University of California researchers are feeding seaweed to dairy cows in an attempt to make cattle more climate-friendly.
UC Davis is studying whether adding small amounts of seaweed to cattle feed can help reduce their emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas that’s released when cattle burp, pass gas or make manure.

In a study this past spring, researchers found methane emissions were reduced by more than 30 percent in a dozen Holstein cows that ate the ocean algae, which was mixed into their feed and sweetened with molasses to disguise the salty taste. [snip]

Dairy farms and other livestock operations are major sources of methane, a heat-trapping gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide. [snip]

It would be more economical and faster to reduce cow numbers. We’re surprised California hasn’t banned cows.

Canadian ‘First Man’ actor defends omitting American flag planting on moon: Achievement ‘transcended countries and borders’

The late Neil Armstrong’s 1969 trip to the moon may have been “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” but it was also a massive achievement for the United States.

One of Armstrong’s first orders of business was to proudly plant the American flag, after all.

But Ryan Gosling, the Canadian actor who plays Armstrong in “First Man,” Hollywood’s rendition of the moon landing, told the Telegraph the magic moment was intentionally omitted from the big screen because Armstrong’s achievement “transcended countries and borders.”

“First Man” is getting rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival, but critics noted the unpatriotically sanitized flick is missing something important, and Gosling explained he worked with French-Canadian director Damien Chazelle and the Armstrong family to decide on its key moments. [snip]

Has anyone asked the Armstrong family about this. We don’t expect CNN or NBC to seek a comment. that would be too American.

ESPN’s Kellerman ‘Angry’ Tiger Woods Defended Trump — ‘It Really Bothers Me’

Monday, ESPN “First Take” co-host Max Kellerman responded to golfer Tiger Woods saying people need to “respect the presidency” when it comes to President Trump.

Kellerman said Woods’ remarks bother him and make him “angry.”

“I want to say something about what Tiger Woods said now,” Kellerman stated. “It really bothers me. I’m angry at what Tiger Woods said. It is a thoughtless statement dressed up as a thoughtful statement. And it either holds in contempt the intelligence of people who hear it or else it’s just a stupid thing to say. … To say you must have respect for the office — Tiger, be clear. Are you saying that the office, therefore, confers respect on to its present temporary occupant? No. Having respect for the office means principally, in my view, is the office holder should have respect for the office.”

He continued, “We are held to a standard of behavior, we at our jobs, right, people in their daily lives. The president, if anything, is held to a higher standard of behavior. It is not such that we have such great respect for the office that no matter what the behavior of its occupant, we must respect the occupant because of the office. No. Tiger Woods … is being slick. We must respect the office therefore that confers respect to the occupant. Tiger, is that is what you are saying? If that is what you are saying, that is a stupid comment.”

At ESPN, some of the “Sports” commentators are so stupid, they wouldn’t even know they’re dead. That outfit fired one cow whose brains wouldn’t fill a 32A cup.
Here we have a turkey who sets his hair on fire when the show guest won’t agree with him. Surely that made his small viewership happy.

ESPN’s base is shrinking, with time and idiocy they’ll go off the air.
Good riddance!
