I know what you mean, I get that same stuff all the time. Is Sinn Fein active again or are they still playing nice with England?

Sinn Fein is fine - and the IRA is currently in remission.  But, Brexit, and how to deal with the Irish border may bring out the troubles again.  A hard border, would start to alienate people again, and go against the Good Friday Accord.  A soft border, would, in many ways, defeat one of the purposes of Brexit.

Ironically, Brexit has a much better chance of unifying Ireland than the IRA's tactics.

Interesting conclusion given the fact that you have no clue what the contents of the letter contain or why it was given to the FBI.

The rumor mill has it that this is something about Kavanaugh's relationship with a woman in high school.  Obviously the FBI isn't going to go anywhere with this if that's the case.

I love it when people use their avatar to demonstrate their radical fringe views. 

How do you feel about the Democratic Socialists of America (your avatar) threatening to shoot up an event full of Trump supporters at the Trump Hotel in DC?

Do you support violence against political opponents?

Do you support domestic terrorists?

 

Plaid shirt guy is now a domestic terrorist?

Twittersphere is suggesting its a "transporting minors across state lines for sex" issue.

 

Without more, that really feels like a hail mary.  If the early reports are this involves a girl when they were both in high school - he attended Georgetown Prep - so taking a girl to Virginia/Maryland to have sex would seem to be a fairly innocuous offense - not to mention, a bit dated.

 

But, given that the Dems would need to throw a hail mary at this point, I guess I could not rule it out.

If he is indeed a Kenyan can he, by definition, be a traitor to the U.S.?  I would argue "No"!

How many marathons has Obama won?  None?  Not Kenyan.

If that's all this ends up being, Feinstein owes the guy an apology.

Obviously we don't know at this point, but it won't be long until details leak out.

Certainly that would constitute some evidence, but I do not know whether it could be considered dispositive of the issue.

I don't think we will ever know - if this is all there is.  It has been referred to the FBI - if it is credible evidence of a crime that can be prosecuted - then its more than simply having sex with a high school girlfriend across state lines.  If it is "nothing" - it dies at the FBI, and nobody knows for sure.

Well, he did double down on the abortion issue.  And everyone knows you split on the abortion issue, not double down.  So, I'd say he has a problem

Kavanaugh was the guy who racked up a hundred grand in credit card debt that suddenly disappeared because he was the captain of his Nationals season tickets group?  
Oh man, there's so many f'ed up stories in this administration I have trouble matching the story to the name.

Did she say what this paper was about, or make an accusation? I have not kept up since this morning.

If all she did was turn something over to the FBI to investigate, I'm not sure why an apology for that is owed?

In all likelihood.  I may have some reservations if he was 18 and she was 13.

Apparently the FBI already concluded that there is nothing worth pursuing here and sent the letter to the White House as a background check update.  A whole lot of nothing.

As a general comment - geez, we're now tracking people back through high school?  There has to be a cutoff age where we're not allowed to smear candidates anymore.

"He can't possibly be confirmed for SCOTUS, remember that English test he cheated on sophomore year?"  

 

There was one article not a couple months back where there was a disparaging characterization of a politician (can't find it) that talked about when they were in 3rd grade.  Is this what we're down to?

Well, she announced that she had turned an accusation over to the FBI without giving any details. She knew about the accusation/incident or whatever it is months ago but never brought it up in either the public or closed session of the hearing. So turning it over to the FBI (where they seem to almost immediately have declined to pursue) and then making a big production to having turned over some super secret accusation reeks of dirty politics.

What about the bit about him perjuring himself in his original Senate confirmation? That seems like it would be something like a big deal that the Senate would care about.

You should take this up with Feinstein for changing the subject to something stupid.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has blasted the charged Senate confirmation process for Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh as a 'highly partisan show.'

The liberal Ginsburg denounced the process, which many court observers have blasted as broken, during an event at George Washington Wednesday – on a day when Democrats who were virtually shut out of the confirmation process bombarded the nominee with 1,200 questions on issues ranging from gambling to his days as a clerk in a fruitless effort to slow down Kavanaugh's nomination.

'The way it was, was right. The way it is, is wrong,' Ginsburg said at the GW Law School, the reported, drawing applause from a crowd

The FBI didn't even investigate. They handed it over to the White House.

Quote

According to a person familiar with the matter, the FBI does not now plan to launch a criminal investigation of the matter, which would normally be handled by local authorities, if it was within the statute of limitations. The FBI instead passed the material to the White House, as an update to Kavanaugh's background check, which already had been completed, the person said. The move is similar to what the bureau did when allegations were leveled against former White House aide Rob Porter.

 An FBI official said, "Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh's background file, as per the standard process."

FBI doesn't say that. They said it's something a local jurisdiction would investigate.

Supreme Court nominations probably changed permanently with the bull#### that McConnell pulled with Garland. I don't agree that this is a positive, but I expect this to be the new normal.

This is High School decades ago. You guys remember your High School days, decades ago. This is really a stretch even for the wacky left. I had some of my best "times" during high school. Absolutely a waste of time. 

Just another worthless tactic to stop a rolling Trump Train. 

I hope he get another 2  nominations so we can watch more theatrics. :sleep:
