Human. Being.

I grieve this historical day for the United States.

This is an historical day in the United States.

1. The Judiciary Committee lawyers fail the Senate's historical mission of providing a FULL AND FAIR PROCESS in the advise and consent process for the American people.

Hatch, Graham, Grassley have engaged in cover up of 90% of Kavanaugh's record, and refused FBI investigation of, and testimony by all relevant witnesses.

2. Judicial integrity is the people on the courts. Kavanaugh's lack of integrity and poor temperament disqualify him for SCOTUS the rest of his life.

Kavanaugh's confirmation rests on AT LEAST five lies about the facts:

-- Kavanaugh denied using thousands of Democratic Party documents Kav knew his staffer, Manuel Miranda, stole
-- his whereabouts on July 1, the time Dr. Ford was unsure of --
his calendar laid out date, place and names, including Keyser
-- who was at the gathering -- Keyser said she was there when Dr.
Ford claims he attempted to sexually assault her; Kav claimed
he'd never met her
-- his habitual drunkenness, according to his former roommate
-- wanting an FBI investigation

Per Trump's coaching by phone, Kavanaugh went contemptuous, political, along with his Republican cheerleaders on the Judiciary Committee.

The GOP of the Judiciary Committee KNOW that Kavanaugh went political because he's ALWAYS BEEN POLITICAL.

Here's a summary of his past:

AFTER he did all that studying and churching in his school years, he

1. clerked for Anthony Kennedy,
2. argued to the Supreme Court to disregard attorney
client privilege in the Vincent Foster death case , which
he lost; he spread the rumor that Hillary was Foster's murderer;
3. got Kenneth Starr to ask Clinton sexually explicit
questions in the impeachment hearings;
4. lead writer of the Ken Starr report that led to Pres.
Clinton's impeachment;
5. lied to Democrats about formulating Bush's enhanced
interrogation policies;
6. was part of Bush's recount team in the 2,000 Florida
recount;

Kavanaugh has been a political judge since he got on the bench. His rulings, arguments and overrulings show that.

For all his claims of the Democratic Party hatching an evil plan to ruin his life, one can see from his past political operative lawyer's work, that he and the majority party are the dishonest conspirers of turning the SCOTUS corporate and right wing.

The Jesuits reject Kavanaugh.
The American Bar Association rejects Kavanaugh.

3. Democracy is buried as
a) law and order warps into order for the patriarchalists and the rich,
b) the highest court is a tool of the ideological rich.
What remains for The People is life under a corporate military junta, and a superfluous constitution.

An Article V convention -- 28 states have voted for it, 38 are needed -- may rewrite the Founders' Constitution to include 2/3 supermajority legislating, at which point this will no longer be the "United" states of 51% majority rule democracy. It will become Pinochet's Chile.

BILL MAHER: I want to see Al Franken Debate Donald Trump -- and so do you.

Tip: click on the timeline and move it to start the video. It won't start by itself.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SPEAKS AT THE U. OF ILLINOIS -- VOTE, BECAUSE OUR DEMOCRACY DEPENDS ON IT

Hope to help us endure dark days ahead.

Start at the 5:00 mark.

Grassley's Kavanaugh nomination hearing is out of order.

It's plain to see.

Giving Dems 40,000 pages to read on Kavanaugh the night before the nomination hearing makes Grassley lack decency, integrity. 102,000 unvetted documents still exist.

This fact alone makes his whole hearing OUT OF ORDER. It disallows senators to do their constitutional duty to review these documents under Article 2 Section 2 for advise and consent.

One man -- Bill Burck (representing witnesses in the Russia investigation -- Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon and Don McGahn) -- should never have gotten to decide which of the nominee's papers the nation's senators get to see, which is over 147,000 documents.

Grassley should be brought up on ethics charges. The minority senators are not obstructionists. The majority party is.

This process is unethically fast tracked after Obama's Merrick Garland did NOT EVEN GET A HEARING. SCOTUS nominations have been turned into political strategy.

Sixty-nine citizen observers were arrested on Thursday, a slight decrease from the 73 arrested on Wednesday and 70 arrested on Tuesday, according to figures released by the Capitol Police. In total, 212 people were arrested.

It's plain to see. This kangaroo hearing is designed to put this obviously ideologically-driven nominee as a lifetime judge on the Supreme Court. The nation's interests matter not.


Chris Hedges, "America: The Farewell Tour" -- What's Ahead Of Us

His book talk is long, but is a good overview of the major problems that have sown the seeds of our empire's demise.

I intend to read and add it to my other Hedges books.

Please refrain from comments, challenges or questions if you don't spend the time to view this first.
