CNN's Don Lemon made me cry when he cried on TV just now.

He said he was sexually assaulted and didn't speak about it until he was 30, then this past week a relative contacted him and said the same thing happened to her and she kept it secret due to shame. This is real to men and women. It ruins lives. Patti Davis (Reagan's daughter) is on now talking about her experience. The FBI MUST INVESTIGATE Kavanaugh! Call your senators, call the Senate Jud Comm.

Call the Senate NOW! This means men too!
87% of the calls have been made by women...why is this considered a woman's issue? It is a human rights issue!
Call the Senate Judiciary Comm this week...

Call them and tell them that they will NOT get reelected by the majority of the US who is against Kavanaugh.
Call all senators and tell them that they are HYPOCRITES and you only vote for reps who have morals and values and who respect women. RESISTANCE WORKS!

The group/$$$ behind the Kavanaugh ads.

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/brett-kavanaugh-supreme-court-dark-money-727706/

The Judicial Crisis Network has fast become one of the most aggressive dark-money groups on the political landscape when it comes to the courts. The group has already spent more than $4 million to support Kavanaugh’s confirmation, with much of that spending happening in states like Indiana and Missouri, where vulnerable Democratic senators are on the ballot. In earlier Supreme Court battles, the group said it spent $7 million to block the confirmation of Merrick Garland, President Obama’s pick to replace Scalia in 2016, and another $10 million to back the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first SCOTUS pick.

The JCN’s big-money donors are a mystery. As a so-called social welfare group, it doesn’t have to disclose its funders. That means that individuals or companies that could one day appear before the Supreme Court may also be bankrolling the campaign to confirm the court’s next justice.

What we do know is that the JCN is the beneficiary of massive anonymous donations by deep-pocketed conservative groups and individuals. Tax records show that in 2016 JCN received $23.5 million from a group called the Wellspring Committee, a sort of ATM for right-wing causes that include the Federalist Society, the conservative analytics outfit Data Trust and the 45Committee, which spent heavily to support Trump’s presidential bid and is affiliated with the Ricketts family, who owns the Chicago Cubs. And Wellspring, in turn, received a jaw-dropping donation of $28 million from a single donor

I heard an interesting theory (and scary)on MSNBC.

A guest, Nick Confessore, said that he thinks the GOP will push Kavanaugh through and is OK with losing one or two terms in the Senate and House since the SCOTUS is more important to the GOP in the long run. They would rather take a small set back in losing the midterms and keep the SCOTUS filled by GOP as their rule over the country for 30 years.

1:00 NATIONAL WALKOUT STOP KAVANAUGH

RESISTANCE WORKS!

Women and men across the country are planning a national walkout on Monday afternoon in a show of solidarity with sexual assault survivors, as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford prepares to testify regarding her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

More than three dozen progressive organizations—including NARAL Pro-Choice America, CREDO, and Planned Parenthood Action Fund—announced the event late Saturday,

calling on survivors and allies to wear black on Monday and to walk out of their workplaces, schools, and homes at 1:00pm EST. Supporters will also be posting photos of their participation online with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors.

"Dr. Blasey Ford has bravely come forward with her story of sexual assault at the hands of Brett Kavanaugh, despite knowing this will come at great cost to her life and her family," said NARAL in a statement.

"Her willingness to testify in the face of relentless bullying, victim-blaming, and unfair Committee process by Republicans is yet another symbol of her courage and her willingness to speak her truth. She is not alone. Allies want her to know they have her back."

Donald Trump could be preparing to put himself above the law. We won’t allow it.

Trump will create a constitutional crisis if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller, or attempts to compromise the investigation by other means. (See The Plan for details.)

Our response in the hours following a potential power grab will dictate what happens next—whether Congress will stand up to Trump or allow him to move our democracy toward authoritarianism.

That's why we're preparing to hold emergency "Nobody Is Above the Law" rallies around the country, in the event they are needed—900+ of them and counting, in every state, with 400,000 RSVPs to date!
Join us.

87% of the calls made to senators this week were made by women.

The majority supported Dr Ford. These women are voting in the midterms and are NOT HAPPY! Even if the Sen Judic Comm picks another nominee the female voters will have this fresh in their minds.

Wash Post also is reporting that the other two party guests

deny being at Kavanaugh's party. If the FBI investigated this they could get to the bottom of this in a few days. Only 5 people were there and they either deny it or say they don't remember. Why won't the Senate Jud Comm allow them to testify then?

Sen Whitehouse said the Dems will investigate the allegations

against Kavanaugh when they hold the gavel again. I know it takes 2/3 of the Senate to impeach him, but if the Dems investigate it can they also have the FBI investigate it later AND if he is found guilty, can a sitting justice be arrested and charged with a crime instead of impeaching him?


"Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) says that if Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed and "as soon as Democrats get gavels," they will "get to the bottom" of the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh."
