[THREAD] Kavanaugh’s confirmation today is just 1 part of Republicans’ decades-long campaign to subvert our democracy. They put their relentless pursuit of a Supreme Court controlled by radical right-wingers ahead of brave women who have told their stories. #KavanaughConfirmation
By taking extreme personal risk, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford & sexual assault survivors galvanized this process. Disturbing and credible allegations against Brett Kavanaugh were brought to light by several courageous women. None of it mattered to Republicans. #KavanaughConfirmation
Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be disbarred and investigated, not elevated to the Supreme Court. He has the lowest approval rating of a SCOTUS nominee since Robert Bork.

Title: URGENT: Kavanaugh Finances

To The Editor:

How did Brett Kavanaugh, who lived for a decade above his means, swimming in massive credit card debt, manage to get back in black in a single year?

1/ We’ve spent months on the front lines fighting this nomination. From mobilizing for rallies, sharing stories of survival & making thousands on thousands of calls to senators—including 15,000 @HRC members today.

We’ve left nothing on the field in the fight to #StopKavanaugh.
2/ And we have done that because the stakes of this nomination—for LGBTQ people, for women, for people of color, for survivors of sexual assault—could not be any higher. Across the country, we have turned out to say we #BelieveSurvivors and we must #StopKavanaugh.
3/ Unfortunately @SenatorCollins, @Sen_JoeManchin and others in the U.S. Senate made clear today that they will nevertheless back this dangerous, unqualified nominee. This is a slap in the face to Americans everywhere. #StopKavanaugh

There is no way to sugarcoat how bad things just got, and if there was, we shouldn't. This is a loss that will haunt this nation for decades.

The confirmation of #BrettKavanaugh has managed to confirm more than just a man, for many, its confirmed our worst fears.

1/
It has confirmed that the @GOP is the most corrupt ruling party at the federal level in our nation's history. That they will do anything and everything to protect itself, including putting the survival of our Republic itself at risk.

2/
Its confirmed that the real decisions are made before the questions are even formally presented, and that they really do not care what our opinions of those decisions will be.

And it has also confirmed that Donald Trump has a lot more power than we imagined.

I've been off the grid but has anyone pointed out that "I wouldn't have had to do that if you hadn't made me so mad" is what ALL abusers say? #StopKavanaugh
Exactly. If everything in the WSJ piece is true, why couldn't he say it under oath?

Wow, YES!!

(Will you go post this on my Facebook post?)

Thought he’d just focus on Kavanaugh. Instead he gave best response on rape culture I’ve ever heard from a man!
I aspire to be this reflective. Damn!

I usually don’t want live hearings and instead read the synopsis later. I have an anxiety disorder and I’ve found this helps manage it. But last week I stayed home and watched every second of Dr Ford and Kavanaugh. I still haven’t recovered #StopKavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors /1
I wanted to bear witness to Dr Ford’s story. Part of me believed that all the women watching could collectively send support her way. Dr Ford was brave and patriotic and I’m deeply grateful she opened her trauma to try and save us #BelieveSurvivors #StopKavanaugh /2
I watched the gaslighting of the fake politeness of the prosecutor and GOP senators claiming they believed Dr Ford and thanking her for her testimony. But it was Kavanaugh’s testimony that I can’t shake #StopKavanaugh #BelieveSurvivors /3

If you're unable to watch what's happening on the floor, I'm gonna be updating this thread with the latest the best I can.

Just now:

Sen Grassley sd Dems doctored a video of Kavanaugh saying B.C was "abortion inducing drugs".

#VoteNo #StopKavanaugh #CancelKavanaugh
Sen Grassley:

The democrats had "one last card" to play with regard to Dr. Ford. Suggesting they sat on the allegations merely as a ploy.

People should see this for what it is- political play.
Lawd have mercy.

I just took my anxiety medication and bloop pressure pills. 😄😄

Grassley is on my fucking nerves. He is lying and lying and lying about the same stuff they've lied abt for a month.

I wrote something for men about the #StopKavanaugh fight. It's about the lies men are told by patriarchy and how it makes you think you're complicit. It's about identifying with women and seeing through the bullshit.

shondaland.com/live/a23587789…
I believe men are justly horrified that a man accused of assault has been nominated by a man who’s admitted to it.

I think they just don’t know what to do about it.
Part of the way that white male supremacy continues to perpetuate itself is by making every man feel complicit, in the same way that women internalize sexism and cut down other women.

At 10 PM in DC yesterday, McConnell filed for cloture on the #KavaNOPE confirmation. According to Senate rules, that gives us till 11 PM Friday to make our voices heard.

There has never been a more important time to call your Senators. Tell them to vote NO. #StopKavanaugh
Dozens of potential witnesses to Kavanaugh’s behavior were ignored by the FBI. Dr. Ford was not interviewed, nor was Kavanaugh himself. Corroborating witnesses for additional accusers were not interviewed.

The FBI investigation was a sham.

A letter being presented to the US Senate today: 1,000 law professors and counting insist that Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed.

On July 16, 2018, Concord Management and Consulting LLC filed a motion to dismiss Robert Mueller's indictment against the company.

Attorneys for the Russian company listed 4 reasons to dismiss. What judge was cited 9 times...and another 2 times?

#KavaNo
courthousenews.com/wp-content/upl…
🔥🔥Yes, Brett Kavanaugh. The judge cited twice=Gorsuch. Is this a coincidence?

▶️One of the 4 reasons Concord's lawyers moved to dismiss was that they claimed Concord had no knowledge that the crime they were committing was actually a crime. Kavanaugh supported this theory.
9⃣Yes, Brett Kavanaugh's opinions are cited NINE times by a Russian company seeking to get Mueller's charges dropped.

Mueller charged Concord, 2 other Russian companies and 12 foreigners associated with Russia for illegally using social media platforms to SOW POLITICAL DISCORD.

HEADS UP:

There appears to be a new army of troll accounts deployed to harass and try to silence women speaking out against Trump and Kavanaugh.

Please do NOT engage them in my mentions.

(My recommendation is you block them immediately, as they are not who they claim to be.)
I have the “quality filter” on, which works okay (but also filters out real people) so do not tend to see these accounts except for when others engage with them and “reply all” in their responses.

However, some more sophisticated ones seems to be getting through the filter now.
You can recognize these trolls because their tone is attacking/mocking right out of the gate, and they’ll call you crazy and use terms like TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome).

They also engage in sealioning if they successfully suck you into a “debate” (en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sealioning).

Ok, all. It's officially Wednesday, so here's what's next w/ #Kavanaugh.

1. The FBI investigation will likely be concluded today. The report will likely be filed (TBD) w/o an interview Dr. Ford, or classmates listed by Deborah Ramirez, and no Julie Swetnick.
E.g. A story covering how the FBI won't interview Dr. Ford. cnbc.com/2018/10/02/fbi…

In other words, we can hope for the best when it comes to the investigation, but we're mostly likely going to get the worst.
There's also debate on whether the report will be released to the public. Mitch McConnell says hell no. Other Senators disagree. Keep this in mind for some of our next steps.

If you want to live in a nation that is "led" by a man who would mock someone who was the victim of a violent sexual assault then we are very different people.

Trump's behavior today was that of a playground bully. They were the words that a bully utters and then laughs.

1/
The bully imagines, and may even hear, the world laughing with him, but the chuckles are only from his hangers-on and those hoping to impress the bully.

The rest of the world only turns its head to look away. They hope that someone, anyone, will intervene.

2/
They almost always get away with it, though, bullies.

And Trump will likely get away with this, like always.

#ChristineBlaseyFord passed a lie detector test on the day of her grandmother's funeral. No one non-partisan or credible has questioned her credibility.

Sen @JeffFlake said Kavanaugh wouldn't be confirmed if he lied to the Senate. Well @WeDemandJustice counts 20+: medium.com/@demandjustice…

Needs more attn, so I made a thread of 20+ sources proving his lies. Cont⤵
washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/…
1/
Lie: Kavanaugh said “When this allegation first arose, I welcomed any kind of investigation."
Fact: “Kavanaugh did not publicly welcome an investigation in two public statements denying the allegations and an in-depth interview with Fox News."
nbcnews.com/card/fact-chec…
2/
Lie: Kavanaugh said he “never attended a gathering like the one Dr. Ford describes in her allegation.”
Fact: Kavanaugh admitted that his calendars “show a few weekday gatherings at friends’ houses after a workout or just to meet up and have some beers. washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/…

This weekend, the GOP was caught trying to limit the scope of the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh to 4 people; it did not include Kav or his accuser Dr. Ford, and did not allow them to pursue leads.

They relented because of pressure. Pressure works. Keep calling. #STOPKavanaugh
If you are not calling your Senators, the time is now. Pressure them to do the right thing!

Constituents of the following Senators MUST call and tell them to vote no. We REALLY need you!

Murkowski: 202-224-6665
Collins: 202-224-2523
Flake: 202-224-4521
Manchin: 202-224-3954
A list of all Senators. Precede each number with 202-224-XXXX.

I’m calling mine EVERY DAY.

They told us @HillaryClinton was just as bad as @realDonaldTrump.

Hell, @SusanSarandon said she was worse.

She should really never open her mouth about politics again, ever.

U.S. to partners of U.N. LGBTQ staff: Get married, or get out nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-ou… via @NBCNews
That anyone ever fell for that ridiculous lie is beyond disgraceful.

Even if Clinton were guilty of the types of corruption they claimed she was she would still not be comparable in this way to Donald Trump.

Not even close.

But she's clearly not.

As the nation braces itself for the @GOP's latest betrayal in the runup to the #BrettKavanaugh confirmation vote, it is becoming clearer that even those we once believed retained some recognizably moral standards, simply don't.

@SenatorCollins, @lisamurkowski--we see you.

🔥LIAR🔥

#Kavanaugh HIMSELF + his team contacted his @Yale friends BEFORE the @NewYorker article on Deborah Ramirez👉🏼asked friends to go on the record to defend him.🙄

Kavanaugh LIED when he testified he learned of the allegations from the article‼️

nbcnews.com/politics/supre…
Kavanaugh told @SenJudiciary UNDER OATH that the 1st time he heard of Ramirez’s allegation was in the Sept. 23 article in The New Yorker.🤨

But texts show that Kavanaugh & his team knew as early as *July*‼️

#StopKavanaugh #KavaNOPE
*Multiple* people have contacted the @FBI with credible evidence that #Kavanaugh **LIED repeatedly** to the Senate, which is a #felony‼️

There is NO WAY that #Kavanaugh should sit on SCOTUS.🤬

Hidden motive behind Republican attempts to fast-track #Kavanaugh:

“Under the doctrine of separate sovereigns, federal & state govt are considered to be "separate sovereigns", so Double Jeopardy Clause does not apply to prosecution of the same crime by both fed and state courts”

Here’s what I just shared with @GMA: Maria and I wanted @JeffFlake to hear our pain. Both of us said: we’re going to make him hear our stories. /1
The history of this country is one of people struggling to be included. /2
That interaction @JeffFlake had with Maria and I was significant, but it was only significant because thousands of people had come forward to tell their stories and take risks for this country. #StopKavanaugh #ElevatorWomen /3

If there is one thing you take away from yesterday’s hearing, it’s this: Brett Kavanaugh is no Supreme Court Justice. #StopKavanaugh
While the fact that Trump only nominated Kavanaugh because he would gut Roe v. Wade was enough to disqualify Kavanaugh, yesterday further proved he is unfit to be a Supreme Court justice.
While the fact that Kavanaugh has already blocked access to abortion & birth control and would threaten access to affordable care was enough to disqualify Kavanaugh, yesterday further proved he is unfit to be a Supreme Court justice.

JFC. This is disgusting. A sitting member of congress is publicly demeaning a sexual assault victim who was brave enough to give testimony in front of the whole world yesterday. No one has disputed that Dr. Ford was assaulted. NO ONE.

Fuck you, @LindseyGrahamSC. #StopKavanaugh
Lindsey Graham: "Ms. Ford has got a problem, and destroying Judge Kavanaugh’s life won’t fix her problem."

That's DOCTOR Ford, @LindseyGrahamSC, and her problem is men like you who support sexual assaulters and silence victims.
