Gillibrand: Kavanaugh accuser
shouldn´t participate in ´sham´ hearing

The Hill [Washington, DC], by John Bowden -

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 9/19/2018 11:59:35 PM

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) says that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who came forward with a sexual assault accusation against Brett Kavanaugh, should not be "bullied" into testifying Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee without an FBI investigation being performed. In an interview with CNN, the Democratic senator says that committee members are bullying Ford by calling for her testimony without the support of corroborating witnesses or an FBI investigation into the credibility of her claim. "I don´t think she should be bullied into this scenario, where it´s a ´he-said, she-said´ when many of the committee members

Comments:
24 hours ago they were demanding a hearing. Now they demand the accuser avoid any hearing. Their rhetoric just keeps getting more crazed and nonsensical.

In other words, everyone on both sides knows this is a sham, but maybe we can pretend it is real and delay this into oblivion.

CNN is a magnet for fools so Gillibrand fits right in.
She´s but one of many who seem to sound reasonable when they are actually just tools spouting the Alinsky Liar Party line. NY deserves her.

The Democrats know they cannot stop Kavanaugh from becoming a SCJ. Their tactic now is to claim that Republicans are mistreating a woman and ignoring a sexual assault. They are counting on the outrage to bring out the female vote against Republicans in the midterms. This will become the main talking point and you will hear it called the war on women again.

Nobody is fooled by any of this scam.

The Dems know it is a scam, but like it. The Repubs know it is a scam, and they are really angry.

Dems are really screwing up here. Only the lunatic fringe like the idiot Sen from Hawaii and Gillibrand are buying this BS story.

Because the hearing for a Supreme Court Judge is a serious matter the process should be dignified, true, honest and filled with integrity. The democrats have made a circus out of it. (That´s the "SHAM")

What? The accuser should be able to make accusations and that´s all we need to hear from her? No, lady, we need to question you and you need to answer. That´s how it works here in this country.

But, so far, the few "witnesses" she has claimed were there have all said that she is LYING!!!!!!

All LIE-berals are EVIL!!!!! All Demon-RATs are EVIL!!!!!! Kirsten Gillibrand is trying really hard to be the queen of EVIL LIE-beral Demon-RATs!!!!!!! She has my vote (but that is the ONLY thing that I would vote for her for!!!!!)

Hearing about what? No one has yet provided the accuser´s July 30, 2018 letter to to US Senate Judiciary Chmn. Grassley. Grassley wouldn´t even know her name except he read it in the Washington Post. Grassley has asked ´bully´ Feinstein for the letter numerous times, but she refuses. To date Grassley has only seen a redacted version that was included in FBI files. Trump has a 47 approval rating among Likely Voters per Rasmussen as of 9/19/18. Obama had 45 on this date in his first term.

Gillibrand is not a good spokeswoman for the Democrat party. Her voice sounds like a wee little girl - no authority. Notice how Feinstein has taken a powder? She´s a key player but is staying out of the limelight - no doubt couldn´t face the questions she´d rightfully be asked. She owes it to the American public to be grilled in front of cameras. Why do the Dems keep harping on an FBI investigation? Didn´t they get the message that this alleged incident is not covered by the FBI, that they declined to investigate? What witnesses are Ford and company talking about? The only two (Judge and P.J.) have already weighed in. To compare Anita Hill (22 witnesses) to Ford (2 who are not in her camp, zero who are) is ridiculous. How about more publicity around Ford´s students´ comments about her?

House Democrats’ hope for wave election
diminishes as Republicans rebound
Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 10/20/2018 9:43:38     Post Reply
Democratic hopes for a wave election that would carry them to a significant House majority have been tempered in recent weeks amid a shifting political landscape and a torrent of hard-hitting attack ads from Republicans. Democrats remain favored to win, but GOP leaders believe they can minimize the number of seats they would lose — and, perhaps, find a path to preserving their advantage in the chamber. The tightening, with just over two weeks left, reflects how President Trump’s rising approval rating and the polarizing fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh appear to be boosting the party’s candidates

Giant ´Beto´ sign stays, Houston-area

A Houston-area homeowners´ association says an order to remove a giant sign painted on their front lawn isn´t a political matter, but one of the HOA´s bylaws. A Katy couple thinks it´s because their neighbors don´t like Senate candidate Beto O´Rourke. Matthew Duffy, a retired Marine, and his wife, Shannon Bennett, started painting the sign that reads "Beto" in giant letters Oct. 14 and ran afoul of the Chesterfield Community Association shortly after that, the Houston Chronicle reported. O´Rourke, a Democrat, is challenging incumbent Republican Ted Cruz in a hotly contested U.S. Senate race. The couple received a visit from

Since storming into Texas politics six years ago, Ted Cruz has drawn national attention as a political giant killer, tea party champion, Senate firebrand and Donald Trump’s last rival in the battle for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Now, with the approach of the 2018 mid-term elections, the junior senator from Texas is cast in yet another role — that of a threatened incumbent. In a race that was initially expected to easily return Cruz to another six years in the Senate, he instead finds himself under attack from a popular Democratic challenger who has raised a jaw-dropping

AUSTIN, Texas — Democratic Senate hopeful Beto O´Rourke told a national television audience Thursday night that he´d vote to impeach President Donald Trump and believes Texas can lead the way to a national embracing of relaxed immigration policies and gun control — unapologetically liberal positions that may be hard for some in his deep-red state to stomach. O´Rourke, an El Paso congressman giving up his seat to challenge Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, had previously suggested that he´d support impeaching the president over alleged collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice. But he went further while appearing at

The day after a CNN public opinion poll ranked Elizabeth Warren fourth among possible Democratic 2020 hopefuls, the Massachusetts senator released the results of a DNA test along with a campaign-style ad defending her family’s story of Cherokee heritage. Warren’s decision to cave to President Donald Trump’s demands was an affront to many Native Americans, who have long stated that DNA tests cannot be used to claim Native heritage or relationship to a tribe. (Snip) As Cherokee genealogists have researched, and I have repeatedly written about, Warren descends from a long line of well-documented white people. While Warren no

If Senator Elizabeth Warren thought that releasing her DNA test results showing Native American ancestry would neutralize a Republican line of attack, she was wrong. The test — part of her strategic preparations for a likely presidential campaign — did not placate President Trump, who has mocked Ms. Warren as “Pocahontas” and once promised $1 million to a charity of her choice if a DNA test substantiated her claims of Cherokee and Delaware heritage. And her announcement of the results angered many Native Americans, including the Cherokee Nation, the largest of the country’s three federally recognized

He also criticized the Senate for being “subservient” to President Trump.

Now, she’s curious about the reporters covering Trump and has been putting out the occasional feeler.
