  1. Man kicked peaceful pro-life protester, yet police aren't willing to do anything about it.

    https://globalnews.ca/news/4513068/man-roundhouse-kicks-pro-life-advocate-anti-abortion-protest-toronto/

    But, scream racial slurs at anyone - and you're arrested!

     

    At least, the employers of this man (a hairdressing salon - Noblestudio101, Toronto), had seen his photo - and he's fired. 

     

    Quote

     

    In a statement posted on Instagram on Wednesday, Noble Studio 101 – a Toronto hair salon – identified the man in the video as Jordan Hunt.

    “It has been brought to our attention that Jordan Hunt has been caught on camera assaulting an innocent bystander at a pro-life rally,” the statement said.

    “We don’t condone his actions and he has been let go. We believe that everyone has a right to an opinion and the right to voice their opinion without fear of physical violence.”

     

     

    Kudos to them.

      According to the story the police showed up a few minutes later and didn't even get out of the car, they downplayed the whole thing telling her it was minor and nothing much would come of it before leaving. They either didn't want to do their jobs or didn't want to for personal reasons. From what's been reported they were extremely negligent to say the least

  2. Deborah Ramirez was interviewed by the FBI.   They contacted the people she claimed to have witnessed her allegation.  Like Ford's witnesses - they all refuted her story too! That's what one of the Reublicans had explained at the press conference an hour ago.

      Why do the Democrats want the FBI to interview Ford AGAIN?  She already told the "truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.". What more was left?

      They wanted the FBI to investigate. They did.

      Yes, why do they have to interview her?   They didn't interview Kavanaugh, either!  Why?  Did she forget to say something?  :D

      If not for Senator Feinstein’s egregious mishandling, this investigation could have started 7 weeks ago. Attacking the FBI's valuable efforts because Senate Democrats chose to keep information from them is a mistake.

    Why don't they show them all - like they did with the pink-hat women?

  4. Democrat Schumer tries to weasel justification why Kavanaugh does not deserve PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE! 

    watch how he trips himself!

     

     

      If it's a fact-finding proceeding (and not a criminal trial) - you do not jump into conclusion that an accused is automatically guilty just because somebody accused him of a crime!

    Yes, IF - IF Ford is right, of course....Kavanaugh's credibility is shot.


    But that's the question, isn't it, moron?

    Is Ford right or not?



    The purpose of fact-finding IS TO DETERMINE WHETHER FORD IS RIGHT,
    OR NOT!




    Hey, moron.....until it's determined that she's right (through what you described as, FACT-FINDING) , that means, you don't declare the accused automatically guilty!

    You wait to see the facts!

    See? You're tripped by your own words that this so-called "fact-finding job interview," is nothing but a farce!

    You pathetic, deplorable weasel. You're no better than a con man!
    I hope voters see through these deceptions the Dems try to weave around their supporters.


    BLEEEEEECH! Sorry....I just puked.

      It's this kind of fanatical determination to ignore reality which is going to get the Republicans hammered, both in November and in 2 years. There's no reason why Kavanaugh can't be withdrawn and another conservative nominee put in his place. Continuing to push this guy, despite his pathetic performance in front of the committee, his lying, evasiveness, yelling at the committee, crying and anger management issues, is moronic.

  5. They say confirming Kavanaugh could alienate women voters and may cause Trump to lose in the next Presidential election.

    Kavanaugh, if confirmed, will be SC  judge....... for life.

    Trump can only get a maximum of two terms - just another term to go, if he wins.

    Kavanaugh was so drunk he puked in an alley! Meh.  Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe.

    Kavanaugh was so drunk he swore worse than a sailor.  Meh.  Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe. 

    Kavanaugh got in a bar fight and threw ice!   Meh.   Big deal.  He did say that he did and said things in his teen years that now makes him cringe.

    Women helped bring Trump to the White House (despite everything they said about him).

    I think, the pained, outraged speech of Kavanaugh against the Democrats.....and that speech by Graham will resonate.  Watching Kavanaugh, and listening to his angry lament,  I was moved - and cried.  What mother, wife, sister, daughter .......wouldn't?

    It could cost Democrats some seats!

      He didn't say or suggest she was lying.  He believes something happened to her....except that it wasn't him.   Ford is mistaken with his identity.   That isn't farfetched.  If she's been traumatised enough to have forgotten other crucial details about that night, why can't it be possible she's mistaken with the identity of her attacker?  

      Kavanaugh has someone to corroborate his claim that it couldn't be him - Ford's life-long friend - Leland Keyser! 

       

      Yes,  Ford was used by the Dems.   That's not a lie.  Nowhere did Kavanaugh accuse Ford of being complicit with the Dems.

      WHO LEAKED THE LETTER that outed her?

        You're bringing up a different pair of shoes.  That's not the same as what's happening here, Argus.

    3. Argus

      Argus

      Hardly unusual in these sorts of hearings. Did he expect things to go smoothly given the Republicans blocked what should have been their supreme court nominee for almost a year so they could make it instead? That's on top of the Republicans refusing to even begin hearings on ANY federal court nominees until the Democrats changed the rules to require a straight 50/50 vote. Clarence Thomas went through something not dissimilar and he didn't start snarling and snapping and crying.

    4. betsy

      betsy

      I don't really know what happened with Clarence Thomas.  Was he called "evil"  by others before the hearings?  Was he treated like he's guilty?

      You don't see me comparing Ford with those two women who accused Gomeshi, do you?

      Even so......Kavanaugh isn't Thomas, and Thomas isn't Kavanaugh.   I don't think they're clones.

      How her letter got leaked - only her lawyers, Feinstein and the person who gave the letter to Feinstein were the only ones who had access to the letter.  I find it odd that for all her stipulation that it be kept confidential - she didn't show any emotion about that letter getting leaked.  Like, there's nothing to it.

      There was also her claim about having fear of flying - and yet, Mitchell mentioned several places she's been to where-in she travelled by plane.

      If I was Ford, I don't know if I can say hello to Mark Judge after that incident.

       

      She could've been assaulted for real - but I don't think it was by Kavanaugh.   She might've really mistook him for Kavanaugh......or, she could've used that assault experience (by another man),  to help the Dems stop the confirmation of Kavanaugh.

      Her own supposed witnesses negated her claims about that party.

      The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer said she first saw Yale University alumni emails about Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misconduct in July.

      The second woman accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct — Deborah Ramirez — just went public with her story, but Yale University classmates of Ramirez and Kavanaugh were corresponding about the alleged incident well before reporters contacted Ramirez, New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer told NBC News on Monday.

      https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/9/24/17895740/new-yorker-jane-mayer-yale-university-emails-brett-kavanaugh-deborah-ramirez

       

      How did Mayer learned about these alleged emails?  Lol. 

       

      If the New Yorker already got a whiff of possible misconduct by Kavanaugh in July - why wait until now to come out with the story?  That would've been a breaking news then, wouldn't it?   With Kavanaugh freshly announced as the nominee!  Why sit on that bombshell for 2 months???  That's quite unusual for a newspaper to keep quiet about something this sensational - considering it's around the time of the height of MeToo exposures.

       

      Why didn't they come out right after Ford came out with her allegation???  What were they waiting for?

      Nah.  Something doesn't add up.

       

      Just because  they've been talking about it in July - does not mean those emails weren't deliberately planted - just in case Kavanaugh would be the one nominated.   I tend to suspect the Dems had prepared quite a while back how to delay or boot out Kavanaugh (if he was the one nominated for the position).

       

      This is well-orchestrated -  in advance.  That's how it smells like to me.

      Quote

       

      William McGowan's 'Gray Lady Down': A Devastating Critique of the New York Times

      In a brief foray into partisan politics, McGowan cites a fine media watchdog site called Times Watch, which analyzed a month of stories the Times did on Barack Obama and Republican John McCain during a slice of the 2008 campaign and found that positive portrayals for Obama outnumbering negative ones by a 3:1 ratio. When it came to McCain, that positive/negative ratio was reversed.

      "Gray Lady Down" also deals at length with what I consider the most disturbing coverage the paper has put out since I began monitoring the paper: The Duke lacrosse "rape" hoax, a sordid interlude in which the newspaper's columnists and reporters often discarded the presumption of innocence while stacking the deck against three white lacrosse players arrested for the rape of a black stripper. The paper defended its coverage even as the case imploded and it was revealed that the players were victims of lies by the stripper and misconduct by the local prosecutor.

       

      McGowan concluded by circling back to the departure of Abe Rosenthal, the symbol of the old-fashioned journalism he believes was exemplified under Rosenthal's regime. He's not a boycotter or even an enemy of the Times; most of his criticism is of the sorrowful, not angry, variety. He just longs for "a much better version of the Times than is being produced by the current regime." After reading his book, all but the most politically in denial Americans would surely agree.

  22. Populism must be rising up in Canada right now.....

    Why are pollsters quiet???

    This controversial Ontario notwithstanding clause - unprecedented - not to mention NDP caucus getting kicked out of the Legislature due to Bill 5 - also said to be unprecedented - would've gotten pollsters drooling over it!   And yet......they're all silent!

     

    CTV Power Play had polled their viewers yesterday about this.  63% agree with Ford!  Thus I looked for other polls.....but, they're all asleep.
