I used to put on my clown stuff and visit children's wards in hospitals. Can we use a better word for these POS? Clowns serve a purpose, these worthless shits don't.

I will try to restrain myself.

Perhaps Actors, Comedians, Newscasters or Congressmen.


Thanks for your service.

Apparently the democrats are having difficulty finding legitimate reasons to oppose Kavanaugh.

Let them fire up the base that voted for Trump for the SCOTUS nominations.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

On second thought, they tend to bring more entertainment to more people than I ever did. I'm going to miss Al Franken at the Kavanaugh confirmations.

that's my thinking also.... let the left continue having the biggest world-wide hissy-fit in history... they know their house of cards is crumbling and the more animated they get to satisfy their radical supporters, the more they expose their failed agendas to the rest of the population

it's going to get worse after Nov when they take another shellacking

What is clownish here is the claim that there are not viable reasons to oppose his confirmation.

There are good reasons, even for purely jurisprudential philosophical reasons, even before the other factual matters of his history prior to ever making rulings on the federal bench.

MK believes in an imperial presidency, not subject to the law, like a king. He thinks no president should have any criminal investigation of him, and no special counsel should ever be looking at any president.

More, he has written they should not be subject to any civil suits. The presidency is just too important to be bothered by any of that, he says.

The SCOTUS ruled 9-0 that the Paula Jones civil suit v Clinton could proceed, in his presidency, for offenses before he took the office. He stands outside that unanimous verdict, which is how outside consensus reasoning he is about what the COTUS says about presidential immunities.

If he gets in, he will vote that a president stands above the law, untouchable by it. Generally speaking, most people think that is a dangerous and incorrect theory. Even the Rs favoring him would say that, and probably most people here, if the question was posed about anyone but their current dear leader.

Then there is his past history of committing felonies to consider. It is true, those are old enough that the statute of limitations bars prosecuting him for them. But that technicality cannot make such a history acceptable for nominee for associate justice of the Supreme Court.

One felony was unlawfully leaking grand jury matters to the press on background, during his time on IC Ken Starr's investigation. Another was committing perjury during his prior hearings for confirmation as a judge to the federal bench.

It is more conjectural, but also, his pick seems to have been a secret corrupt bargain, to get Anthony Kennedy to resign at this time. Offering anything of value in return for an official act is bribery, per se. When it is kept secret, the guilty knowledge of those involved is confirmed.

All of these secondary things (if found true) should see his nomination denied. But the first thing, his wildly wrong notions about presidents being above the law, should deny him this seat before considering anything else.


The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.

....

WHILE they are President!! those "imperial presidency" and "king" labels are your terms, not his

as it is, or has become, every President can expect an "investigation" designed specifically to handcuff an administration for years... from/on BOTH sides.... every time... not just Trump

the President has a job to do and he can't do it effectively if he is dancing around issues due to some Trumped-up () legalese/political reason

it would lower the temp of those who have trouble handling a loss.... on either side

go after him personally afterwards if you want... oh wait, that negates the point of the "investigation" to begin with

The Congress can run a president and his administration ragged, and if they want to, inappropriately, for partisan reasons. Cf: 65 investigations of WJC by the Congress from 1995 onward. Approximately $100 million in expenses for drilling dry holes that found nothing.

A criminal investigation can only be from his OWN appointed special counsels, or by his own AG's appointments-- that is, by some inferior appointed officer in the executive branch itself-- and so, the claims about partisanship in that are risible.

But thanks for being honest that you want a president to be above the law, during the time they are in office. (No, of course, BK doesn't put it in those words, or say 'imperial presidency,' but that's what it amounts to.)

To clarify, though, you mean just the R presidents, right? If the office ever again comes into a D's hands, then by golly they better not claim to be above the law then, right?

You realize it applies both ways? And had Clinton not been compelled to comply with legal processes (under, remember, the 9-0 vote he must), then he would have never been subject to the situations that led to his impeachment (and acquittals).

Pretty thin Sofla.

I also see conjecture on your part.
