The Court of Public Opinion

(Hat tip: Scissorhead D-Cap)

It begins, as it always does, with a tweet from a twat:

and about an hour later, improved with an ominous threat that Prznint Stupid is going to sic the Justice Department on… well, someone:

…and thus intrigued, I wondered what’s the news with the Virgin Mayor of Keg City, Brett Kavanaugh, that has Prznint Stupid’s panties in a bunch on the floor as he tweets at us. And just seconds later, the Google tells us Prznint Horndog’s tweet came after the NYTimes reported that a male former classmate said he witnessed Kavanaugh flash and frottaged his junk against a woman without her consent.

And of course, the NYTimes, as always carries water for the powerful:

But I digress. The story seems to confirm the allegations made by Deborah Ramirez, who claimed that Kavanaugh shoved his junk in her face when she was drunk. She struggled to get away from him, and it was at that point that she unwillingly touched little Brett.

You can almost see this as two stories, on about Kavanaugh and the other about the failings of the NYTimes.

Anyway, the NYTimes article suggests the FBI’s investigation was even less thorough than we imagined

“Ramirez’s legal team gave the FBI a list of at least 25 individuals who may have had corroborating evidence. But the FBI interviewed none of them, though we learned many of these potential witnesses tried in vain to reach the FBI on their own.”

I recall at the time it was widely reported what the FBI could and could not investigate, and it was clear then that the fix was in. This story, which comes almost a year later (Kavanaugh is sworn in on October 6), only confirms our worst thoughts: we have a serial sexual abuser on the SCOTUS and he perjured himself to get there.

Castro is exactly right. The court of public opinion might have been overruled a year ago, but justice should grind on. We got another mother-eff’er to impeach.

USAF Gives Trump’s Turnberry 2-Stars on Yelp!

Grifters Gotta Grift

Coffee, Tea, or Trump?

The Air Force says it has lodged crews at Trump’s resort in Turnberry, Scotland up to 40 times since 2015.

“The tally represents the preliminary results of an Air Force review launched after POLITICO reported last week that an Air National Guard crew stayed at Turnberry in March. Congressional Democrats have also been investigating military stays at the property, but have yet to receive any information from the Pentagon.”

I’ll note that it is 20 miles from the Prestwick airport to The Russian Usurper’s golf club, and that there are plenty of other, lower-cost hotels between them.

We Call It ‘The Aristocrats!’

‘I’ll be here all week! Try the veal!

WSJ:

“Inside a room of the ornately decorated Hotel du Palais during last month’s Group of Seven summit in Biarritz, France, President Trump awaited a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi. “Where’s my favorite dictator?” Mr. Trump called out in a voice loud enough to be heard by the small gathering of American and Egyptian officials. Several people who were in the room at the time said they heard the question.

“The witnesses said they believed the president made the comment jokingly, but said his question was met by a stunned silence. It couldn’t be determined whether Mr. Sisi was present or heard the remark. The White House declined to comment. Egyptian officials couldn’t be reached for comment….

“Mr. Sisi has drawn criticism for his authoritarian rule since taking power following a 2013 coup. Under Mr. Sisi, Egyptian authorities have been accused of detaining thousands of political opponents, of torturing and killing prisoners and of stymying political opposition, according to reports by the United Nations, U.S. State Department and nongovernmental groups.”

Area Arsonist To Award Fire Starting Merit Badge

What? Me worry?

Strategic hire AG Bill ‘Low’ Barr wants to give his team of brigands and seditionists an award for subverting the rule of law to install the Virgin Mayor of Keg City to the SCOTUS:

NYTimes: Justice Dept. to Honor Team That Worked on Kavanaugh Confirmation Process

“Next month, Attorney General William P. Barr will present the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service to those who worked ‘to support the nomination’ of the judge, according to an email reviewed by The New York Times. …

“That team being awarded includes prosecutors and lawyers from the department’s tax division, the environment and natural resources division, the civil appellate section and several United States attorneys offices. …

“Typically, the distinguished service honor, the department’s second highest, is given to employees who worked on significant prosecutions, rather than on judicial nomination processes. In addition to the award to the Kavanaugh nomination team, 10 other distinguished service honors will be presented this year. Those recipients include the prosecutors who worked to end a bid-rigging conspiracy against the Defense Department.”

If you didn’t think that the Kavanaugh nomination was bad enough, now we learn that the 4th Reich was so invested in elevating this rapist (ALLEGED!) to the highest court that they are giving themselves assorted honorarium and employee-of-the-month style recognition for a mission accomplished.

News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News Briefs

Dennis Prager, he of the 5-minute propaganda videos who has previously claimed that being a conservative in America is the same as being a Jew during the Spanish Inquisition, answers the question that is on all of America’s lips: Is PragerU actually a university?

PragerU’s on-line videos promoting a right-wing take on everything from feminism to climate change, gun control to socialism, have racked up more than one billion views. That’s a lot of eyeballs, and a lot of propaganda!

As a compare-and-contrast, McDonalds Hamburger University “is an intensive five-day crash course education in management, leadership, and company culture.” And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that “Hamburgerology is an actual thing; not just a thing, but a degree you can earn upon graduating from McDonald’s Hamburger University,” which is “a sprawling 130,000 square foot Chicago campus.”

Two clowns but only one teaches at a legit school, and it ain’t PragerU.

The First Shady Tries Stand-Up

Oh, Honey, that’s now where it goes.

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) alert us to maybe the unintenionally funniest moment of 2019:

At a mid-August fundraiser in Jackson Hole, Wyo., Ivanka Trump was asked to name the personality traits she inherited most from her parents.

Without much of a pause, Trump told the crowd of roughly 120 high-end donors that her mother gave her an example of how to be a powerful, successful woman.

And her father? He passed onto her his moral compass, she said, according to two event attendees.

And Eiron squealed with laughter and ran down the hallway, crop-dusting the entire way.
