Starting to wonder if they purposely picked someone horrible for SCOTUS so that any alternative who *seems* halfway normal will sail right through. #reflexivecontrol Looking back on Kennedy, maybe that’s what happened with him too.
Kennedy was the first choice. At the last minute someone else was advanced as the nominee. That person ended up having to withdraw in disgrace and Kennedy...sailed right through (and helped lay groundwork for the nightmare we’re living).
They focused a lot on possible drug and alcohol use in his vetting. But I wonder if they checked for mob connections?
Aside from the terror, I think another reason these things go unreported is because at a certain point, women have had multiple harrowing/disturbing experiences, got no help when they asked, accept it as part of being a woman, and compartmentalize so they can function.
This has been true for me, anyway. I’ve been stalked *more than once,* severely harassed *more than once,* assaulted...when that Access Hollywood video came out, I started thinking back to what was the *first* time it happened. I was shocked to realize how many times it was.
The times I did say something to anyone who could do something, I was humiliated. Why heap even more abuse on yourself on top of everything else? The GOP were LITERALLY trying to deny health coverage for victims of domestic abuse. F*ck them.
What is happening with the Kavanaugh rape story follows the exact strategy outlined in Manafort's superseding criminal info: "leak the report
ahead of its official release to a prominent United States newspaper and then use that initial article to influence reporting globally."
The story they're trying to stick is that this is all Diane Feinstein's fault for 1. following the wishes of the woman who sent her the letter 2. referring it to law enforcement and 3. not running into the senate + to the press, wild-eyed as soon as she opened the letter.
The more I think about this response, I see it as PR spin bullshit. Well gosh golly gee! What a wholesome ending to something that began with "hand jobs HAHAHA" and ended with "sorry for my rage when I lost at gambling."
PS: to the sycophants at the ready with the invasion of privacy narrative re the request for names, dates and prices on baseball tix—when you’re a public servant and want to so much as spend a buck of public money for a cup of coffee, you have to...
1. Get approval in writing 2. Explain why you’re doing it. In writing 3. Write the names of anyone who was with you 4. Write down what was discussed 5. Submit for approval a second time. If you’re seeking a reimbursement, you may be SOL, unless...
“Fighting fire with fire” against the GOP would mean: cheating.
And by cheating, I mean:
-teaming up w/the mob/hostile foreign powers; utilizing their money, Intel agencies + kompromat
-stealing and weaponizing metadata of millions of people
-cyber espionage against journalists and our lawmakers
-use of mercenaries to keep people compliant
-purposely spreading false information
-smearing the people who are in the trenches trying to actually do something
-straight up voter suppression.
Bill Burck works for Don McGahn. And Priebus and Bannon. You know, because of their treasoning and mobbing and the US Govt frowning on that. He’s also the person deciding what documents will see light of day re Kavanaugh. law.com/americanlawyer…
This is way too charitable. Daily Caller was launched just in time to mobilize for the psy-op we're all suffering under, and immediately got in bed with Project Veritas. That site shares ad tech with sites that makes it obvious they're tracking potential wedges. (Contd)
Including sites in France, Spain, and Russia. If you study active measures and trolling, the pattern Roberts has laid out makes sense. A common technique is to seem reasonable/on a certain side; gain followers + trust, then slowly swing to your ultimate goal.
See for yourself: look up Dailycaller-dot-com on BuiltWith, look at all the related sites (sites that contain the same bits of unique code for ad tech). And ask yourself what kind of metadata they're collecting from people who visit them. And what they might be doing with it.
#techhearing : COTTON - do you SEE ANY DIFFERENCE between working with the US Government vs. say, RUSSIA or... CHINA? Jack: (gulp) what do you mean.
COTTON: I'm drawing a line right here, right now. You should consider very carefully what side you're on. But we know what side you're on, DON'T WE. Also: CIA, FBI, UNITED STATES. Jack: water. I need some water.
REED: Do you follow the money? RICO? Jack: um. law...law enforcement?
Something small I’m doing in advance of the elections, and you can too: I’ve had cards (business sized) printed with the following info: Election date, cut-off date for registering, and the URL/phone # for our local board of elections to register or check registration...
...and a reminder to VOTE. I also included when early voting starts. Once the cards arrive, I’m carrying them everywhere I go and will give some to friends and neighbors to do the same.
If you don’t have design chops or software, just about anyplace you can order business cards has online templates you can use. Just make sure you give out PRIMARY source information.
Weisselberg was granted immunity. Cohen is cooperating. Pecker was given immunity and has resigned. Flynn begged for immunity after your Saipan casino was raided. Manafort’s in jail. Wynn had to resign. The NRA’s being investigated for RICO. Mueller knows what you did.
When you go down, we’ll have a big-ass party. The biggest goddamn party this world has seen. People of every star and stripe will gather together in song, dance and the shared human spirit. And, being a nation of immigrants, the food will be amazing.
She’s of course entitled to wear whatever the hell she wants. It’s just visually very funny to me for whatever reason. It’s almost as funny as having on a 10 gallon hat or a feather boa (and now I’m laughing again).
Do you suppose the church might have been involved in money laundering and other mafia activities with regards to their horrific treatment of innocent children?
This is apropos of the news that came out today...
And I’m being sarcastic. Of course they were laundering money. You don’t cover up decades of abuse and keep thousands of kids/families quiet without laundering money and/or a little help from the mob. I think this is part of the roll-up we’re witnessing.
I'm sure there's a perfectly rational explanation for two of your pilots dying in two separate crashes, and another pilot being indicted for drug trafficking and then offering him a place in your tower if he pays in cash and unspecified services. Totes normal.
I'm sure there's a perfectly normal reason for there to be three major fires at your properties within 4 months - one of them deadly - plus an armed standoff at your tower in Panama to keep people from accessing surveillance monitors and servers.
I mean, who among us doesn't have a friend whose maid gets shoved in front of a train, and the murderer somehow gets assigned an attorney who works for the mob?
I'm sure there's a perfectly logical explanation for all of the head-on collisions, falls, fires, accidental overdoses, and blunt-force traumas to peoples' heads. What do you think, @ericgarlandsutori.com/s/pTTyLH39r7Fs…
Note: there were at least 16 additional incidences that I either had forgotten, or didn't know about, when I wrote the original thread, so there's new stuff in the linked TL.
