Lt. Col. Vindman ended his opening statement with a stirring plea that had some spectators wiping away tears: “Dad, my sitting here today, in the U.S. Capitol talking to our elected officials is proof that you made the right decision 40 years ago to leave the Soviet Union and come here to United States of America in search of a better life for our family. Do not worry. I will be fine for telling the truth.”

American Bar Association and Yale Law School Urge F.B.I. Inquiry Into Kavanaugh
The American Bar Association called Thursday evening for postponing a vote on Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court until sexual assault and misconduct allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford and others are investigated by the F.B.I.
The dean of Yale Law School, Judge Kavanaugh’s alma mater, echoed the A.B.A.’s call. “Proceeding with the confirmation process without further investigation is not in the best interest of the Court or our profession,” Dean Heather K. Gerken said in a statement on Friday.
And the magazine of the Jesuit religious order in the United States, America, withdrew its endorsement of Judge Kavanaugh, who was educated by Jesuits at Georgetown Preparatory School in Maryland. In a statement on Thursday, the editors said the nomination was “no longer in the best interests of the country.”
\ “If Senate Republicans proceed with his nomination, they will be prioritizing policy aims over a woman’s report of an assault,” the magazine said. “Were he to be confirmed without this allegation being firmly disproved, it would hang over his future decisions on the Supreme Court for decades and further divide the country.”
AMEN TO THIS:
"If you put a man in the White House who openly boasts of being a sexual predator, a president credibly accused by more than a dozen people of misconduct, you are no friend of women and the good men who love them.
If your rallies are highlighted by “lock her up” chants against a person who has never been charged with a crime, you cannot wrap yourself in due process or presumption of innocence.
If your men of God, led by the Rev. Franklin Graham, say attempted rape is not a crime because “if it was true, these are two teenagers, and she said no and he respected that,” you need a new faith in which to cover your hypocrisies.
Story follows character, as the Greeks knew, and what we’re seeing now with the Bonfire of Republican Vanities is the predictable outcome of those who enabled the amoral presidency of Donald Trump"
And if you visit any of the usual far right blogs and news sites, you will read their blood curdling howls about how unfair all of this is while at the same time never admitting to their original shame and sin of allowing an immoral, pathological lying pig to represent their party, to be their standard bearer. Somehow, the fact that they support President Porn Star Shagger is, they've convinced themselves, the Democrats' fault. That they continue to support this pathetic, broken, irrational bag of fetid fumes is their shame, not the Democrats'.
The Goopers sold whatever was left of their honor when they made the choice to support one of the worst human beings to ever disgrace the American presidency.
Let the GOP reap the whirlwind. They deserve it all.

The truth will out.
Christine Blasey Ford Is ‘100%’ Certain Assailant Was Kavanaugh
In one poignant exchange, Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, reached for a quote from a colleague across the dais, Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina. Rather than reach, as other Democrats had done, for Mr. Graham’s statements dismissing the accusations against Judge Kavanaugh, Mr. Blumenthal began reading from a passage from the senator’s 2015 book, “My Story.”
“I learned how much unexpected courage from a deep and hidden place it takes for a rape victim or sexually abused child to testify against their assailant,” Mr. Graham wrote of his time as a prosecutor. “I learned how much courage from a deep and hidden place it takes for a rape victim or sexually abused child to testify against their assailant.”
Mr. Blumenthal added, “If we agree on nothing else today, I hope on a bipartisan basis we can agree on how much courage it has taken for you to come forward.”

Trump Calls Kavanaugh Accusations ‘All False,’ but Says He Can Be Convinced by Testimony
If the accusationas are "all false," as Trump claims, how can he possibly be "convinced by testimony?"
Trump, again, is addled-brained and confused.
Never believe a serial liar. Trump is a serial liar and a self-admitted sexual assaulter.
He has no credibility in this whatsoever.
I believe the victims.
Blackout Brett needs to withdraw while he still has a milligram of decency left in him.

Trump greeted with laughter while touting his administration's accomplishments at UN
"In less than two years, my administration has accomplished almost more than any other administration in the history of our country," Trump said at the top of his speech, which prompted audible laughter in the hall.
"Didn't expect that reaction but that's OK," he responded.
Of course he didn't expect to have people laugh in his lying face. Narcissists are convinced of their magnificence, and so Trump can't imagine other human beings not as in love with him as he is with himself.
The whole world laughed at the horse's ass.
|PRESIDENT UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATOR, DONALD J. TRUMP|
TRUMP HAS COMPLAINED THAT “THE WORLD IS LAUGHING AT US.” ON TUESDAY, IT DID.
|MAKING THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY LAUGH AT US!|
SNOPES: "We don’t yet know the real identity of the injured women seen here. This picture appears to have been online for several years, posted from countries such as Russia and South Africa, and offering no descriptive information other than generic terms such as “pregnant woman beaten by her boyfriend”:
The "Democrats don't want to talk about this" because it is a FALSE, FAKE MEME. And this is how the far right morons perpetuate their lies.
This is Keith Ellison and Karen Monahan, NOT the meme above:

The current GOP is utterly without honor or credibility. They knew about the Ford accusation, and now we find out they knew about the second accusation and have tried to rush through the Kavanaugh nomination to get an alleged sexual predator on the SCOTUS. We already have one, thanks to the corrupt GOP and cowardly Dems, why do we need another?
