Blind Item #12

I don't think it would shock any of you that southern politicians of both parties have visited the house on St. Charles. I don't think it would shock any of you that a certain southern Senator who is completely 180 of who he used to be less than a year ago has visited. The thing is, the people who would do the leveraging of him would want something completely different than how he is acting. It makes you think that perhaps the people in charge are willing to sell their product to the highest bidder.

Lindsey Graham

A man acutely aware of how brownstone ops and blackmail work!

Bob corker is 100% different than what he was last year but he's getting out. Graham is a bit different. Ted Cruz is shitting bricks now everyone single day maybe him.

Doug Jones from Georgia

This is 100% Lindsey Graham.
And MDAnderson... Jones is from Alabama, not Georgia.

MDAnderson said...

Yup got them mixed up.

Akbar Johnson said...

180 from where he was a year ago? John McCain?

Nutty_Flavor said...

Ted Cruz got lucky that he was harassed in that restaurant. It's the only thing I've ever seen that's made him look sympathetic.

Still, I think Beto's running away from a drunken accident will ultimately bring him down. Lots of things that happened 30 years ago don't show character - like just getting into a drunken accident - but running away from one does.

Geeljire said...

What do you do with red hot kompromat to which your target no longer responds, CDAN?

I think Beto is who they're talking about here, he's shady.

Turd Cooze could be dowsed in gasoline and set on fire and I would still have a hard time being sympathetic for the Zodiac Killer.

Nah. Republicans are grasping at straws to keep harping on that DWI. If he loses, that won't be a factor.

Nutty_Flavor said...

It would be for me. Just like with Teddy Kennedy. Everyone can make mistakes, but people who run away from their mistakes aren't their cup of tea.

Oh FFS all politicians are puppets with more strings than a pedal harp and far more easily played.

Beto could have drunkenly run over a nun yesterday and I'd still vote for him over Rafael "Ted" Cruz.

DDonna Tarttty said...

It's Lindsay Graham. One of the most blackmailable men in Congress! He saw what happened to McCain!

Nutty_Flavor said...

What, brain cancer? I don't get it.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Gadfly, Beto has a fake name too: he was Bob for most of his life. And his dad was a heavy-hitter judge, which certainly helped him when it came to that accident.

But hey, vote as you choose, one vote per person.

Personally, I just printed out and filled in my mail ballot today as my tiny protest against this Kavanaugh crap. I've voted for my (female) senator twice before, but she's been totally opportunistic and gross during this entire process, and I got a great deal of joy in filling in that little circle for her (female) opponent.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Anyway, this isn't Beto because he's not a senator.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Also, I don't even understand this blind. So whatever.

cebii said...

I'll vote for Beto. I've sent Cruz several letters over his career asking to explain his stance on certain issues, and all have been blatantly ignored.

" all politicians are puppets "

Then maybe we should be working to insure they are our puppets, how about?

Aw, lookee there, Kavanaugh is crying.

God, this man went to law school???? He talks like a teenager.

He hasn't run away from it. He's written and talked extensively about it

"It's Lindsay Graham. One of the most blackmailable men in Congress!"

At least Linds admitted, unlike other Republicans, that his computers were compromised by Russian hackers.

He was certainly positioning himself as a firebrand against Trump...until their mysterious golf course meeting. About switch!

There was no Charles House about it. It's all out in the open.

Back in the day, my sister a school teacher, asked a union big wig why they kept endorsing our Senator. She said, "He's such an a**hole." They replied, "Yes, but he's OUR a**hole."

Bob Corker also ended the Chattanooga experiment with treating internet access as an independent public utility. They was going to construct high speed internet without any participation of any ISP or cable company involvement.

Can't have that!

Weekittylass said...

The breathy, baby-voiced valley girl, vocal fry from a woman with 3 post-grad degrees and extensive international travel is better? Her deer in the headlights testimony rang false to me. Way too many inconsistencies. How can a woman with her CV still be so woefully unsophisticated to legalities when it comes to matters of sexual assault. Particularly when she has published material on childl abuse and it has affected her every breathing moment since. She said she could never fly to Australia because of her phobia, yet publicly threatened to move to New Zealand due to Trump’s alleged unfair funding cuts to scientific research. She admitted to couples counseling with her husband because she demanded another front door due to her PTSD from her alleged assault. Wouldn’t a back staircase leading to a back door make more sense given her testimony? If that wasn’t possible, then find a house that did. Two questions were asked on her lie detector. Whether, after telling her story, did she make it up or if she was lying. She replied no to both and was found to have passed. This is one of the reasons why lie detectors are inadmissible in court. If the subject truly believes the incident happened, even if all the evidence shows it didn’t, they can pass. She has never filed charges in Montgomery County. There have been no corroborating witnesses and many to the fact that it never happened. I, too, wish no ill will to Dr. Ford, but my gut instinct tells me she is a little batchit crazy.

What State?

Cail Corishev said...

Seems like running your entire enterprise on blackmail can backfire, if the other side ever gets someone in charge who understands to fight fire with fire. Oops.

@Weekittylass, they were counting on Trump and Kavanaugh to nobly pull the nomination if they came on strong with accusations, because that's what Republicans usually do. When that didn't happen, they should have dropped it, but Creepy Porn Lawyer has more ambition than sense, and Feinstein is senile, so they doubled down. I feel kinda bad for Ford, because she does seem like someone who was hurt in the past, and they used her to try to pin that on an innocent man. So I don't feel *too* bad. Hopefully the whole story of the scheme they tried to pull will come out soon, and the people responsible will face justice.

Nutty_Flavor said...

New York State. I voted for Kirsten Gillibrand twice before, in 2010 and 2012, and for Hilary Clinton for that Senate seat twice before that. Gillibrand’s manipulation of #metoo to advance her own career has been no short of vile. I know almost nothing about her opponent and Gillibrand will probably win anyway, but this whole Kavanaugh thing has made me sick to my stomach.

Weekittylass said...

Nah, Montgomery County Maryland. No statute on sexual assault. Trust and believe, that county is full of little Alexandria with the occasionally functioning cortex socialist wannabes. If they thought they could grab him, they would.

Weekittylass said...

ITA, Cail. Feinstein is losing her grip on her seat and will do anything, ANYTHING, to hold onto it. Especially by pandering to the baying, socialist, millennial mob. Same with Pelosi. You just know she spends her every waking moment plotting to get that speakership back. I believe she would even Arkanicide any Dem that dares to even think of challenging that old buzzard.

rosie riveter said...

@Week

Well, thank god we have other investigative measure other than your esteemed gut.

So, you support an FBI background investigation then, that would cover everyone?

@Cail

"they used her to try to pin that on an innocent man"

Why so sure he is innocent? What FBI investigation presented evidence of that?


Kavanaugh talks like the belligerent, spoiled, entitled kids he has always been and will always be.

Oh but his TEARS!!!! I'm convinced!!!!

plot said...

@Week

" wish no ill will to Dr. Ford"

After insulting her on a message board, based on your personal Gut of Total Accuracy, you claim this?

I don't believe you.

Cail Corishev said...

It was fun to watch every leftist on social media turn on a dime from "OMG what a rapist" to "OMG what a crying baby" in about a ten second span. Gotta give the commies credit for group-think if nothing else.

And they might as well drop the FBI investigation nonsense. Six (6) FBI background checks, and they had plenty of time for an investigation since Feinstein has had the letter in her claw since July. They waited because their WHOLE PURPOSE was to delay the nomination until after the midterms so they could use it to motive their base. It could all have been handled quietly weeks ago, with no need for DOCTOR Ford to face any public questions. But Avenatti thinks he could be president, so he needed the publicity.

It worked once in Alabama. It won't work again. The unfortunate thing is that REAL victims of sexual assault may now find it harder to get people to believe them. Many who watched this farce today will be more skeptical. Hollywood rapists must be pleased.

Sara, Making It Work said...

"I don't know if she thinks underage sex is big deal as we saw what went down with Kylie and Tyga. "

It is? Bet you like the best forms of music and read the best books.

"And they might as well drop the FBI investigation nonsense."

Why? If there is nothing there, the FBI will find nothing there.

"Six (6) FBI background checks"

Not for a Supreme Justice position, however. Do you know the extent of most minor background checks? I do. It amounts to surveys sent out to people of your choosing to vouch for you. It's not a full FBI investigation into the seriousness of charges or insinuations. It's a fucking survey of your buddies.

"They waited"

Who is "they"? Chuck Grassley who stalled at every opportunity for a hearing? Is that who you mean?

"It worked once in Alabama."

Damn right it did! When a pedo goes stalking teenaged girls in a shopping mall, it SHOULD cause him to lose elections...unless one feels that White Men should be entitled to do whatever they please. But ain't that kinda what Weinstein and Singer and Woody Allen believe?

Curious what you choose to believe Cail, and what you don't. Gosh, could it be all GOP White Men are blameless of all crimes, and all Hollywood is guilty?

OOPS! Copy pasta tragedy!

So Cail takes her fun in strange ways, almost the same elite sources as 4chaners, hm. Oh the Friday nights they must enjoy together.

Cail Corishev said...

By the way, check out the incredible dishonesty of Avenatti here. He brings forward a couple more accusers at the last minute when it's too late to get them in to testify. One has a shocking tale of gang rape, which everyone hears about even though there's no charge to face. So then when Ford testifies to something much milder, people who are inclined to believe her automatically bundle in the gang rape. Presto, they've convicted a man of serial gang rape in their minds (and their Twitter feeds), and no one had to swear to it and he never got a chance to defend himself against any specific charges.

That this was possible and applauded by half of our political class and most of the other elites in this country (and dingbats like Alissa Milano) should disturb all Americans.

Now they'll double down (again) and make this the issue of the midterms. We could tell them how that'll go too, but they wouldn't listen.

LEANNE NORMAN said...

Funny how lot's of the people who are normally decrying Hollywood for there sexual predators going unpunished, are desperate to see them in the white house or the courthouse.
You needed no proof to convict people in Hollywood who have never been accused by a victim or anyone else other than enty or other alt-right trolls. Yet you automatically write off what Dr Ford and the other women have said. She spoke about this in therapy years ago, was she plotting then in the hope he got nominated for the supreme court? If he admitted it like Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women you'd still support him because you like his politics in the same way you did Trump.

LEANNE NORMAN said...

Trump must have a ton of shit on Lindsey he's done a complete flip and obviously lost his mind along the way if today's performance is anything to go by.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Convicted in their minds, boo fucking hoo. Considering rapists rarely get convicted in any way, let alone serve time, forgive me if I shed few tears.

ON ANOTHER NOTE, I went to a house party in the late 80's and another person pointed out this rather plain buxom curly haired lady and told me" bunch of guys ran a train on her last year and she wants to do it again". Having led a sheltered life with an overprotective BF, they had to explain to me exactly what it meant. To say the very least, i felt sorry for the girl and nothing happened that night. Thank God. Feinstein is just doing her job .💕

Jack Rabbit said...

Why should Kavanaugh withdraw and let this braying mob of animals win with this filthy tactic of bringing out a parade of lying whores? By accounts tonight from within the Senate, he has the votes in the committee, as the four "moderates" have decided to vote to confirm, and he has the votes in the Senate to win confirmation. Here's a clue to successful parade of whores strategy...have some of the people named by the lying whore NOT disagree with what the lying whore is saying. Gotta find those liars who will corroborate. Fuggin' dumbocraps have done nothing but enrage and energize the conservative base, who will turn out in droves and deliver the toddlers another gut punch. Americans do not want lying, hysterial, violent nutcases running anything. Dems need to put the insane far left out of business and until that happens, they are out of power. Enjoy 30 years of conservative rulings from SCOTUS, dummies!

Jack Rabbit said...

Yes, Graham is likely a closet case. He is also acting...rational and somewhat amazing. Like a man who's been released from his restraints...no doubt empowered since that POS McCain croaked. He acts like he gives no f&cks about consequences and is speaking his mind now. I don't care if he was filmed raping puppies in the middle of Times Square...he was amazing today and spoke for millions of Americans who are disgusting by what has been done to that exemplary man and his family. I truly hope that degenerate hag Feinstein drops dead from the stress of the bs she pulled.

"Why should Kavanaugh withdraw"

Because he would be an extremely shitty Supreme and he would try to destroy this country for his own belligerent entitled rich-boy pleasures.

Unknown said...

The Kavanaugh thing has made me sick to my stomach as well. But as a sexual assault survivor, I’m far more disgusted with how Republicans are handling this. Above all, this is a job interview, not a court of law; if a normal person behaved the way he behaved yesterday in a job interview, there is no way he would get the job. There are too many questions about the integrity of his character.

DDonna Tarttty said...

I'm no fan of Kavanagh and I'm frustrated that there is zero focus on his pro-corporatist decisions, his investigation into Vince Foster, his work for the Bush Administration, and his support for censorship of alternative media.

That said: He's better than DiFi, who is controlled by the Chinese, who had a spy in her camp for nearly 20 years and nobody's talking about it.

DiFi is a treasonous liar and needs to be in jail instead of running for re-election. She is a monster.

The Chinese spy story should be huge, much bigger than the Kavanagh story. Yet the NYTimes hasn't even bothered to write about it and the Washington Post has spent a couple articles telling us it's no big deal.

https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/08/01/details-chinese-spy-dianne-feinstein-san-francisco/



plot said...

@DDonna

The reason Kavanaugh is way worse than DiFi is because for the last 18 months he has been writing decisions that basically side with Trump to curry favor. Those decisions have uniformly stated that presidents are essentially kings for 4 years and can do whatever the fuck they want. Kavanaugh argues that this was the intention of our Constitution. Do you agree?

So, Kavanaugh will be presiding, sooner or later, over one of the many court cases mounted against Donny and his family. Trump is placing him on the SCOTUS because he will fall in line and decide without fail against anyone who threatens Donny or the Trumps.

Not only that but Kavanaugh is worse than Mitt Romney in his belief that corporations are the most special people of all who deserve all the special rights of personhood. Good-bye individual Constitutional protections for all of us, though it will be framed as a black versus white issue so us white folk will buy in...like we always seem to...which is how Trump was elected in the first place. Aren't we grand!

You may be right about DiFi, I don't know. I consider her one of the dinosaur Boomers. She votes mostly in favor of things I care about but often steps outside the lines for corporate favors. Except for standing and filibustering for so long last year, I can't think of anything impressive she has done.

Spies are everywhere. Chinese, Russian, Vietnamese, Mexican, the only country backing off on it's spy activities is the USA over the last 2 years. Wonder why.

Update on our Bret -

More college classmates are coming out of the woodwork to describe him as a stumbling and belligerent drunk (well no shit, he was being interviewed for a job and screwed that pooch with his irrational anger, I think. Something tells me the cork ain't back in the bottle for old Bret.)

The vote in committee has been delayed one week for an FBI investigation.

The ABA had concerns about our Bret 12 years ago during a background check. They were ignored by the GOP. So much for Bret's claims that he passed every background check with flying colors. He did not.

New evidence that the Senate staff refused to meet with the 2nd accuser or pass her name on to the Judiciary Committee.

Top Catholic publications dropping their endorsement of Kavanaugh.

Just thought y'all would like to know.

FYI his DUI case was dismissed. Meanwhile, George W had one and was elected president so...
