He would make a fine opponent for Trump in 2020.

Kamala went to the wall and grilled Kavanaugh on his conversations with that law firm (250 lawyers there) about Mueller and Kavanaugh not knowing which of the 250 she may be speaking of. Yesterday on Maddow She was on talking about that line of questioning and couldn't substantiate anything she was asking about.  Complete whiff.  The cheapest of cheap political theatrics.

In the balance we can only assume it was made up out of whole cloth to garner headlines.

That's an odd characterization of someone saying they wouldn't reveal the identity of a confidential source on a television show.

Yeah...Maddow and Trump's tax returns, Part Deux.

She and Booker both came off looking a little dumb.  You set something like that up, you need to deliver.

If being a shameless political grandstander makes one a fool and a fraud, perhaps we can all look with fresh eyes on many of our representatives up the chain and agree that from local school boards to the Presidency we have made it clear that we prefer fools and frauds.

Myself, I prefer buffoons and hucksters, but to each their own.

jon, jon, jon, you really need to enrich yourself. I am sure I could find a few online courses that might really help you out. Maybe some US History mixed in with some Civics. Most people covered this stuff in-depth during high school. That is assuming you started and finished. I don't want assume too much if you are still in middle school or something. If you are, I apologize in advance and you should post when your high school graduation is coming up. We could probably have a real discussion then.

I disagree with almost of all of jon_mx's political views, but don't do that. Don't talk down to anyone like that. Be on this board or in real life

Last year Mike Pence flew to Indiana to attend an NFL game with the secret service in tow on the public's dime in order to hear the national anthem and then leave the stadium immediately thereafter in mock disgust because one of the players kneeled during the song in protest of police brutality and racial bias.

Yes, and imagine how expensive that was for the taxpayers.  Not cheap at all.

If she can't bring the allegation with any credibility she shouldn't have brought it.  Heck, the NYT has had to tighten anonymous source rules lately after getting burned again and again.

Nice whataboutism.  Not terribly analogous, but definitely a good effort.

It’s a perfectly valid point. You said it was “the cheapest” of political stunts.  I chose one of literally thousands of options from the last three years to demonstrate that there have been plenty of far cheaper political stunts.

Trump has nothing to say about it. You do realize that if Roe v Wade gets overturned it only sends the decision to the states.

I personally don't think it will be overturned and don't relay want it to be but late term and partial birth both needs to go in my opinion.

An abortion is a medical procedure that should be decided on between a woman, her doctor, and the doctor's ethical obligations.  If a woman is potentially going to die, be maimed, or be forced to carry a dead fetus in her body for weeks/months in the absence of a procedure, anyone who advocates against her being able to legally get it takes a big notch down the humanity ladder in my opinion.

Actual pictures!  That verifies a story by Gateway Pundit.    There were people in them and everything.  Were they photoshopped?  She sure is holding her "money" like a cell phone. Since they all come from the same source, and he claims he saw this with multiple people over two days and listened to the conversations, why does he only have one photo and no video?

I assume you realize exactly what partial birth abortion is. I will not discuss it here because it is that bad.

This is seriously one of the most offensive posts I've seen on these boards.   I'd like you to meet any number of my female friends IRL and have you say this to them.  

Then you could play a fun game of "how many teeth did I just lose?"

It is no worse than the MSM which we all know is the propaganda arm of the DNC.

Do I need to put these posts in Little Orphan Annie decoder code for you to understand them or something?  Is there a less filtered way of taking in these hearings other than to watch the actual hearings themselves that I am unaware of?  I am all ears.

So, no follow up on this dumb assertion of yours? @Qanon ?  I'm all ears and could be doing it wrong, but don't think I am.

The term "partial birth abortion" is not a medical term and your question is therefore difficult to answer with any real precision.  There are varying definitions used in various laws across the country, but the short answer is "under federal law, unless the life of the mother is threatened by the pregnancy, nothing does."

Indignation doesn't supplant truth.  If you take out obvious (and fairly rare) exceptions the vast majority of unplanned pregnancies are "whoopses".  In this day and age there are birth control methods that are damn near 100% effective.
