I am exhausted by this man.

First, I can't tell you how often my official Google calendar deviates completely from what my actual day ends up looking like.

1/

"Brett Kavanaugh has calendars from 1982 that conflict with Christine Blasey Ford's account" twitter.com/i/events/10439…
It's not likely, after all, that #Kavanaugh was likely to have scrawled "sexually assault a fellow student" on to his calendar. Although Mr. "Devil's Triangle" probably wishes he could have.

Seriously, this dude is a class A dirtbag.

2/
Listen, I think Kavanaugh is a smart, arrogant, manipulative SOB who very likely might have imagined a day of reckoning and manufactured those calendars back then after the fact, just in case.

I can't be anything other than sickened by this situation.

In 1991 a bi-partisan agreement delayed the confirmation of Judge Thomas to allow for further FBI investigation, thus setting the precedent you claim doesn't exist @chuckgrassley #TW #StopKavanaugh #MeToo #CancelKavanaugh
In an April 2014 speech to the Yale Law School Federalist Society, Brett Kavanaugh had a clear recall of binge drinking and partying. @senbobcorker @pattymurray #TW #StopKavanaugh #MeToo #CancelKavanaugh

.@judicialnetwork is picking #SCOTUS for us, first #Gorsuch now #Kavanaugh. @ZeldaShagnasty shows here, the domain confirmkavanaugh(.)com was registered in 2/17. 3 similar sites (.net, .info and confirmkavanaughnow(.)com) in 7/18, all three on the same day. #osint #infosec
That date was 7/10/2018. Given that all domains were registered through GoDaddy’s anonymous registration service, WHOIS doesn’t tell us much. But the site is copywritten to @judicialnetwork, so we know they’re involved. Let’s take a look at the page source for the .com site:
Notice something? A template created for a Gorsuch themed site is being used for #Kavanaugh. Was there a confirmgorsuch(.)com too? Blank page currently, but sure enough one was setup 12/19/2016. And taken down 7/9/2018. Well, when did confirmkavanaugh(.)com go live?

@Lawrence @TheLastWord People seem surprised by this; find it an affront.
This GOP does 👏 not 👏 work 👏 for 👏 🇺🇸 👏 and has not since at least 2010 (citizen's united - the .1% was able to increase the pay for play $ from a trickle to a flood) and many have not for decades. And they are sociopaths.
@Lawrence @TheLastWord Prior to that they spent decades sneaking in tax loopholes for themselves (they increased the rate at which they got richer and we got poorer - little by little over years) and the the #Kochs have been quietly installing legislators of fortune from state to fed level.
@Lawrence @TheLastWord Their playbook is based on feudalism. The elite class is served by the peasants. And #CharlesKoch has been maybe one of the most brilliant men in history to have formulated the architecture for most of this decades long plan.

The GOP aren’t hostile to Dr. Ford because they think she’s a liar. If they believed that, they would welcome an FBI investigation to clear his name.

They’re hostile towards her because they know she’s telling the truth.
Brett Kavanaugh is a predator.
That suits them. #BeAVoter
I’m sick of men’s opinions on how Dr. Ford is mistaken, or a liar. Men who haven’t met her, don’t know what happened.

They know she’s not lying. They think women should be expected to endure what she did as a right of passage. 🤮

The time for predators is over. #TimesUp
Please don’t be sick of hearing this, because it’s so important. You need to call you Senators and tell them to vote no on Kavanaugh. There are some key GOP wavering. Call volume must be high! #StopKavanaugh

@SenateGOP @POTUS @GOP @TheJusticeDept @FBI of conspiracy to cover up portions of @BrettKavanaugh's history which may be detrimental to his confirmation to a seat on the @USSupremeCourt.

They have kept approximately 90% of Kavanaugh's official Archive records from the @USSenate
ostensibly because they have no bearing on his appointment as a Justice on the @USSupremeCourt. Should this determination not be made by the whole of the @USSenate?

It’s not ok if you’re drunk, or they are.
It’s not ok if you’re young, you’ll never be able to atone.
You must have consent.
It’s not, NOT ok to hold your hand over their mouth so they don’t scream.

Rape stains forever.

If you seat him, you foul the court.
We remember. #TimesUp
Tell your Senators that to seat Kavanaugh, accused of attempted rape, would destroy the court. They will ruin it’s credibility, and their own.
It’s go time. Call volume is crucial.
YOU MUST DO THIS. #StopKavanaugh
You know the drill. We need to GOP votes. Murkowski and Collins are our best bet. They accept calls from everyone.

In light of some recent comments, if you’re a constituent of Corker, Graham, or Flake, light them up. 👊

The clip on @maddow of Anita Hill talking about how the most difficult part of her congressional testimony was for her elderly parents to hear it brought me to tears. Her bravery never fails to amaze me. How wonderful to see that so many of her family members came to support her.
Almost thirty years later, some of the same condescending, misogynistic men who attacked Professor Anita Hill are still in congress and are doing the exact same thing to Professor Christine Blasey Ford. This time, we cannot let them win. #StopKavanaugh
Thank you showing this, @maddow, and for reminding us of Anita HIll's bravery and her pain but also – sadly – that we are right back here again.

The courage of #ChristineBlaseyFord to #StopKavanaugh has given me strength to speak out about an experience I had years ago.

I was dating a man 19, I was 17. We had consensual sexual experiences together.

We went to dinner, movies, & 1 night he forced himself on me. 1/4
I lived at home, my mom was out. We were in my bedroom. I knew him for months. What began as kissing, escalated a bit further, but I had wanted to call it a night. He wouldn't take no for an answer. He threw me down on my bed, & pinned my arms behind my head. 2/4
I was in shock. He became more aggressive. I was scared, but I just froze. He was laying on top of me and trying to get a response, but I didn't move, didn't fight. And then, he stopped. He got up & put his clothes on. Neither of us said a word. He left. I bolted the door. 3/4

Who can forget that proud moment that all the world learned #TraitorTrump proudly boasted about GRABBING WOMEN BY THEIR GENITALS?
Yet 62 millions Americans thought that was A-OK & voted for him anyway?
Disgusting!
I bet @RepChrisCollins is a happy man right now
After all what's being ARRESTED & a little INSIDER TRADING compared to @Rep_Hunter being arrested for FRAUD & finding out he PAID OFF FIVE mistresses with those funds?

The mocking responses from many prominent men to this news aren’t even a surprise.

They probably do not even grasp that it’s evidence of a propensity to abuse power and not about teenaged drunken antics.

Why? Because they’ve likely engaged in similar behavior at some point.

Amazing what the GOP can do when motivated. Like finding 65 women to defend Kavanaugh, accused of forcing himself on an under age woman when attending an ALL MALE HS, in a day.

Shame the people of PR, or struggling to afford health care, don’t interest them as much. #BeAVoter
Confirmation on Kavanaugh is scheduled for next week. Keep calling you Senators.

Between the perjury, the questions of how he payed off his debt, the emails showing his views on Roe, and the sexual assault charges, Kavanaugh is a no! #StopKavanaugh
Murkowski and Collins are still the best bets for the 2 votes needed to #StopKavanaugh, and they’re receiving calls from everyone.

The Republican Party is trying the old "But meet all the women he *didn't* rape" strategy with Brett Kavanaugh.

It doesn't matter how he treated anyone else. It only matters how he treated the girl that he raped. #StopKavanaugh #KavanaughIsARapist

A thread on Judge #Kavanaugh & perjury.

I’m an attorney & have followed the Kavanaugh nomination closely. I want to discuss why I think it's important to use the word perjury to discuss some of #Kavanaugh's dishonesty. Continued ⤵

A major problem with news coverage of Kavanaugh's deception is that the news relies on experts for its stories & that many of the legal experts including #NeverTrump conservatives & anti-trump progressives know #Kavanaugh to be a thoughtful lawyer. (Cartoon via @tomtomorrow)
A good example of this came from 1 of my favorite podcasts, @NSLpodcast. Hosts are 2 attorneys—1conservative/1progressive—both critical of Trump. Both set aside evidence of #Kavanaugh's dishonesty bc they believe him to be honest. They know him personally

🔥Holy Hell🔥 Kavanaugh Held A Woman Down By Force And Covered Her Mouth... 😳 OMG #StopKavanaugh newyorker.com/news/news-desk…
💥💣💥Kavanaugh tried to FORCE himself on her‼️Kavanaugh and a classmate turned up music to SILENCE HER PROTESTS😲 He COVERED HER MOUTH WITH HIS HAND 🤚
🤔In retrospect, It is now particularly interesting that Kavanaugh brought his young daughters, Margaret 13 & Elizabeth 10 to his SCOTUS hearing... Was he trying to avoid questions that might be asked about his Rub n Tug, emails and possibly this letter⁉️

THREAD: 3 weeks ago I had emergency abdominal surgery. My gallbladder was rupturing. Not my fault, but if the current administration gets its way, insurance companies & others could discriminate against me for it. This is why we must #StopKavanaugh. This is #WhatsAtStake. (contd)

My oldest niece is 12. When she was a baby, she had severe asthma. Her parents once woke at 3 AM to find her barely breathing. She is fine, but she has a preexisting condition that could make her uninsurable if the Trump administration gets its way. #WhatsAtStake #StopKavanaugh

In June of 2018, the Trump Administration said it would not defend the #ACA and actually AGREED in part with the plaintiffs, arguing that protections for people with #PreExistingConditions should be overturned.

We should've seen this coming.

It's the usual narrative shifting/both sides bullshit routine we've watched play out over & over since 2015.

Because we now know that Republican #SCOTUS nominee #BrettKavanaugh has almost certainly committed perjury multiple times.

So...

1/
What to do?

Well, if you're part of the evil fucking Republican Party cabal that has been playing footsie with #Russia and accepting money laundered donations via the @NRA you would want to draw some heat away from your guy. Right?

How?

Two words: Hillary Clinton.

No one has more reliably distracted the media from the real story for Republicans more than @HillaryClinton.

She is literally the goose who lays the golden egg for Republicans.

What are the best ways Republicans have found to get themselves out of the hot seat?

This is an obvious ploy to distract from Senator Collins weighing a vote that her constituents are against and put all Americans in peril for generations. The only question is why the press is giving it credence or airtime. #StopKavanaugh thehill.com/homenews/senat…
Duh. Profanity and threats are not cool. But what's worse is cherry picking those to dismiss tens of thousands of unanswered calls and desperate attempts of Mainers and people around the country to stop the Kavanaugh freight train headed directly for our lives and rights.
