2. This week a student watched #DrChristineBlaseyFord and gained inner strength to tell her truth about the teen boy who attacked her.

Tonight she sits in her bedroom crying and praying the pregnancy test she just purchased will be negative.

3. This week a woman packed her bags, and after 30 yrs, was finally leaving her abusive husband. For 30 yrs she wore long sleeves so no one would know.

Tonight, she unpacked her bags, and made plans to purchase more long sleeve shirts.

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!

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

The president of the USA has been accused by at least 20 women of sexual assault.
A candidate for congress had been accused by at least 6 women of sexually molesting them when they were teenagers.
And now a man accused of attempted rape is up for a seat in the Supreme Court.
And remember that one judge on the Supreme Court was confirmed despite being accused of sexual harassment.
When sexual harassment and assault are at the highest levels, it gives a green light that women’s bodies are fair game.
#Patriarchy #USA
When 60 million Americans still vote for you despite your boast that when you’re famous women “let you grab them by the pussy,” is it too surprising that an attempted rapist is still being considered as a judge for life on the nation’s highest court? #Patriarchy #USA #SCOTUS

If #BrettKavanaugh is confirmed he will be the most hyper partisan & corrupt Justice to ever be seated on this nation's highest Court.

David Brock has written that Kavanaugh belonged to a group of toxic conservatives who were all groomed to radicalize our discourse.

1/
And we aren't talking semi toxic. We are talking Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Ann Coulter, and Matt Drudge among others. Each of them recognized as forces to be reckoned with among even the most powerful in conservative circles.

2/
This group of cohorts have much in common. Each has lowered the bar of decency, civility, and honesty in this country in very specific ways.

More disturbing is the obvious and dangerous racism that permeates the professional output of every single one of them.

1. @PreetBharara @KamalaHarris @SenatorLeahy #StopKanavaugh #KavanaughConfirmationHearings Mr. Kavanaugh -@POTUS has slept with pornstars? Should he get a break? Can you define abhorrent?
2. Has @realDonaldTrump aka @potus done the same?
3. What questions would you like @realDonaldTrump to answer? Similar to these? Can we replace Lewinsky with Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal?

Update: @SenSchumer just used procedural tools to (briefly) delay Kavanaugh hearings. This might seem like Schumer is fighting to #StopKanavaugh, but it's *not* the most important thing he could be doing if he wanted to win this fight. thehill.com/homenews/senat… 1/
To recap, Democrats have few tools when they're in the minority to stop bad bills or nominees from moving forward. But one tool at their disposal is "withholding consent". Here's our explainer on it: indivisible.org/resource/senat… 2/
That's exactly what Schumer did today -- he withheld consent on McConnell's request to continue with the Kavanaugh hearing beyond the time allowed. Normally, we'd applaud this kind of resistance. 3/

Men have been accusing us of hysteria for hundreds of years for deigning to speak up for our rights. I have spent much of my adult life arguing against the hysterical label, explaining how sexist it is. At this point fuck it. Damn straight I'm hysterical #StopKanavaugh /1
I'm hysterical because this accusation has always been used to control women. We were burned at the stake for being witches, put in sanatoriums, had forced hysterectomies & oophorectomies, were sterilized, & we're too emotional to decide if we want an abortion #SaveRoe /2
I'm hysterical because our pleas were dismissed and ignored for the past 3 years. We were deemed dramatic, silly, and too focused on "women's issues" because we begged people to listen to our rational fears that Roe could be overturned #StopKavanaugh #WhatsAtStake /3

In answer to their critics, Dems showed up to the Kavanaugh hearing and hammered the GOP for rushing confirmation with a fraction of this reactionary judge’s WH documents released.

With no way to block this nomination on their own, they can still make their argument to voters.
Booker hammers Senate GOP for rushing through a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land with just 10% of his documents reviewed, and for ceding it’s duty to evaluate the documents for release to a partisan lawyer.
#WhatAreTheyHiding?

In Kavanaugh’s court, the same people always seem to win: the powerful, the privileged, the corporations, and the special interests. The rights of everyday people, the oppressed, the workers, women, always lose.
