Brett Kavanaugh being haunted by a demon

Radio host Bryan Fischer called on Christians to “provide a wall of protection” against the “demonic forces that are coming after Kavanaugh.”


In the wake of numerous sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, one Christian radio personality apparently has reason to believe that the devil and his henchmen are trying to tank the nomination. American Family Association (AFA) radio host Bryan Fischer took to the airwaves recently to contend that not only is Kavanaugh innocent of these accusations, but that “Satan and the demons of hell” are the ones working against him. Speaking about the scandal, Fischer told his listeners:

“This is the biggest conflict between good and evil that we have seen in the last year. This is big league spiritual warfare. This is major league spiritual warfare. This is Satan and the demons of hell coming against one man because he stands for what is right and stands for what is true. And all the forces of hell are arranged against him and we, ladies and gentlemen, have to stand in the gap for Brett Kavanaugh.”

Fischer continued: “We are the warriors that God has alerted and God has called us to stand in the gap for [Kavanaugh]. Evil is pouring through this gap, targeted at Brett Kavanaugh; we’re there to stand in the gap and provide a wall of protection in the spirit for the demonic forces that are coming after him.”

Holding Ranks

Despite the disturbing allegations, the many religious groups backing Brett Kavanaugh have remained by his side. After decades of a Supreme Court that leaned left on many social issues, these groups clearly see an ally in Kavanaugh – a judge who they expect to be sympathetic to their cause in areas such as religious freedom and pro-life policy. With so much on the line, they’re refusing to let a few accusations derail his appointment.

Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick

Julie Swetnick says Kavanaugh was present at a party where she was gang raped.

But at what point will this position become antithetical to Christian values of compassion and helping those in need? Hypothetically, how many accusers would it take to convince people like Bryan Fischer that Satan is not spending his free time orchestrating an anti-Kavanaugh campaign?

New Accuser Speaks Out

This morning, a third woman came forward claiming that Brett Kavanaugh was present at a party where she was gang raped and that he frequently sought to get girls drunk and take advantage of them during his high school years. These latest accusations – coming on the heels of two other women’s claims that they were assaulted by Kavanaugh – have put a black mark on the judge’s reputation and placed his Supreme Court nomination in serious jeopardy.

No word yet from Bryan Fischer on the new allegations – though it’s safe to assume he’ll just dismiss the victim and accuse Satan of being responsible.

    If Satan is the father of lies then yes Satan along with his best buddy, George Soros, are behind the accusations.

      Satan, really? Sounds like something out of the middle ages. What about these girls’ lives that were ruined by the spiked drinks and the guys spreading stories of their conquests about the campus? Would you want this for your sister or your daughter?

      And about why did it take so long? I saw you all post about the Catholic priests raping those “poor boys.” Well, what took them so long to report this abuse? They could have stopped it when it occurred and think of all those boys who did not have to suffer rape because they waited 20, 30, 40, 50 years to report the priest had raped them. Everyone is saying how “brave they are to finally be able to tell their story of abuse….” Is it because they’re men that you identify with that trauma?

      Kavanaugh is a nasty drunk, i.e., his friends at Yale say he gets “aggressive, and mean” when he gets drunk. Is that Satan also?

      What about his gambling debt in Atlantic City that threatened his career? It was at Trump’s casinos—yes, the same casinos that went bankrupt—where his debt was forgiven. What do you think about that? Was that Satan also?

      If Kavanaugh has a problem with Satan, then the problem must be with Kavanaugh—no schemes, no corrupt Democrats, no jezebels, or anything else. Gorsuch went to the same school as Kavanaugh and there are no open issues for him! He’s a Trump appointee. This is a man who has no problem in lying to get his job; that was his problem when Bush appointed him, and the Republicans knew he was lying and gave him the job. Those same questions arose in this hearing and he lied again.

      So, we know Kavanaugh has no problem with lying, drinking, carousing and whatever other sexual proclivities he may have. That bull about being a virgin through college and that’s why he could not have raped someone is just that a pile of bull. If you believe that, then I have a bridge to sell you. The people that want him in are no better than him and that is where this country has taken a turn for the “good old days when men ruled and women were ignored and had no rights.” I guess that is what MAGA means. Enjoy it while you can, because as your President disbands the FBI, CIA, NSA, Secret Service and other security agencies, there will not be a shot or nuclear discharge for Russia to walk in and take over.

        Prove it oh Liberal One. These so called women deserve to have their lying tongues cut out.

            Good One!! LOL!

        2. John D. Partin says:

          Jolene Marcella Travis, what could ever possibly prove anything to a Trumpophile, who thinks that anything that Donald J. Trumpelstiltskin does is just FANTASTIC!!!! and WONDERFUL!!!! and just “SO VERY GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY”?!!!! So, of course, you take this LYING DOG!!!! Trumpelstiltskin’s word and this LYING DOG!!!! Kavanaugh’s word for it over these women’s word for it in the matter of his raping them, and say that “these so called women deserve to have their lying tongues cut out”, while the President and Kavanaugh get to keep their lying tongues, which they will still have plenty of use for in the years to come!!! I mean, if you and other Trumpophiles had any objectivity and discernment about the Donald, you (and the Electoral College) wouldn’t have elected him President in the first place and even now you make excuses for everything that he does and nothing can EVER!!!! prove anything to you against him. You, as a woman, should have some sympathy and commiseration for these women who are accusing Kavanaugh of raping them and take their side a little or a whole lot, and not take the side of the person whom they are accusing of this crime, the same as you would want other women (and men) to sympathize with you and take your side against some man whom you were accusing of raping you, and not just blow you off and dismiss your charges against him out of hand. I believe that your alleged “Christianity” says “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you”. So, if you really believe in following that teaching, let’s see some of that in your attitude and words about this matter and your taking these women’s words over the man whom they are accusing, the same as you would want them and others to do for you. They deserve to be believed or, at least, have their charges seriously considered and investigated—again, the same as you would. Why is it left up to a man (myself) to stand up for these women and do your job for you?!!!

          1. James Jimbo Jones says:

            No one has said the word “rape” but YOU.

          2. Kenneth J Hale says:

            I never knew an idiot could write that much!!

          3. Todd Copeland says:

            Anger. Hatred. Judgement. Condemnation. This is what you have responded with. We can’t give in to these things as they only cause more pain, to ourselves and others. We are looking at a situation in which we are on the outside, looking in…and only what we see on media. We can’t judge anything, that isn’t OUR job. Unfortunately, much of the media does everything they can to sway our opinions, because of their own biases…and not because of fact, either. I am with you in standing up for women who are abused and that they should be heard. In this situation, unfortunately, it follows a pattern by a political party to advance their own agenda, not in any way to support of stand up for her. That doesn’t make me a “Trump” lover. That simply makes me an outsider, looking in, objectively. Sadly, there may or may not be truth to any of the claims. We may never know…looking back 30-36 years and with no concrete evidence or proof. He said, she said, isn’t it. We need to do more to help women moving forward – to help them report things, right away…to help them be heard…and even more than that, to stop sexual assaults, overall.

            Shalom

            You tell them brother.we are suppose to be a nation of Justice. Let Justice be served.liars should not be elected to the supreme court,they should not sit on a judicial bench.

          5. Faith Robert says:

            Any one getting their tongues cut out should be the proven liars and there are plenty of them in this administration and the first one cut should be the great proven liar of over 5000 lies, Donald Trump.

          6. Gwendolyn Lord says:

            NOTHING WORSE THAN A WOMAN WHO BETRAYS HER GENDER BY SIDING WITH MOLESTERS AND RAPISTS. trump is a sex offender as is his pet nominee. The Good Ole’Boys stick together…men of wealth who never heard the word “NO” even when it was screamed at them as they pinned some woman down against her will. May the Deity shine a bright light of shame on all evil-doers and hypocrites.

          7. Iconoclast says:

            So you are saying there is no way this woman (Ford) can just be a lying Democrat operative who is being suborned to defame a man who never did anything to her? EVIDENCE (something about which you do not seem to care) has already made everything she has alleged suspect. There is NOTHING credible about her story.

            Do young men try to rub on young women and pin them, hoping they will get all hot and bothered and respond with eagerness? Yes, they do.
            Should they do that? No, they should not.
            Did she say he tried to take off her clothes, or make her touch his penis, or suffocate her to keep her quiet? No.
            Does it appear that anything she has alleged has any credibility at all? No.
            If Slick Willy did it, would you give a damn? No.

        3. Father Thom says:

          Victims never lie! Stupid people assume!

          1. John D. Partin says:

            Conversely, Father Thom, according to you and other people who don’t want to believe the victims of rape and sexual assault, “they always lie and the people whom they are accusing never lie”. That is equally stupid!!! Yes, sometimes, “victims of rape” are lying and those whom they are accusing are innocent. Sometimes, that happens and that much is true. But genuine victims of rape aren’t lying and accusations of rape aren’t proven to be “lies and made up stories” just because you need them to be that and don’t want to believe them—because, as in this case, you can’t believe anything that is said against Trumpelstiltskin or the man that he has nominated for the Supreme Court. Then, it is you who are lying and distorting the truth for your own bias and agenda. I just saw Dr. Ford testifying in the Senate hearing and she was sincere and crying there, and I will believe her over that LYING DOG!!!!! Kavanaugh and LYING DOG!!!!!! Trumpelstiltskin definitely every time and any day of the week, since they aren’t sincere or credible and are notorious LIARS!!!!!

          2. Kenneth J Hale says:

            Gulable people believe lies!

          3. John D. Partin says:

            Greg, thank you for your agreement with me on my post. You are right in saying that “liars should not be elected to the supreme court, they should not sit on a judicial bench”. To James Jimbo Jones and Kenneth J Hale, rape is also just holding a woman down on a bed and feeling her up, not only penetrating her, against her will, and it takes a lot of writing to fight against stupidity, which is intelligent, and not idiotic, to do!!!

          Wow. Neither living or nice. So why are you here?

        5. Minister paul says:

          This satan is myth. What is truly evil is this amoral ultra conservative Republican evangelical christianity that has little to do with Jesus teachings of loving your neighbor as your self. This is what happens when religion is weaponized by politicians.

          1. Paul says:

            Totally agree. You nailed it.

        6. Lisa says:

          Three fact that these women are willing to face these horrible people that would shot shame then behind their backs. I’m a survivor of rape. I have up my twin daughters who were the result of rape. It is one of the most difficult things to do and these women are courageous to me.

          You, however Jolene, you I’m ashamed of. You are taking the side of a sexual asalant and a liar and his hopeful boss who has 14 counts against him. You are no Christian. You are one of those people that sits there and judges others and hides behind the Bible. You don’t know the Bible because Jesus would have taken these women to him and he would give them comfort because that’s the man he was. You are no Christian.

          1. Iconoclast says:

            Would Jesus have condemned this man with no evidence?

          Mighty Christian of you. Did you get that piece of wisdom after prayer and fasting or after being bit by the snake you have been handling that has wrapped itself around your brain!

        9. pablo Fumero says:

          Wow.. which part of Love God and Treat others well do you ignore? That guy did all those things and many more are being hidden by the Amoral Republicans and McConnel. That is why the longer they wait the more things will come out. Kavanaugh is there only to give Trump cover for his criminal behavior.

          1. Gerardo Defendini says:

            And you are giving as much evidence of your words as Ford gave. NONE

            OK here’s a challenge.

            How about someone tell me why should I believe her and not him? (and it can’t be because she is a woman. We are looking for equal treatment no?) Can anyone answer that? NO?

            I am happy that you have opinions, just don’t push them as facts. Because they are not. You state “That guy did all those things and many more are being hidden by the Amoral Republicans and McConnel’.

            Were you there? NO, then how do you know? You don’t do you? Not one piece of evidence.
            “Trump cover for his criminal behavior” Any evidence of this either? No.

            Let’s hope no one ever accuses you of a crime and you land in the court where a judge thinks just like you.

        10. Gwendolyn Lord says:

          Jolene you are a DISGRACE to all women, and a traitor to our sex. So all victims are liars>all men are innocent? Statistically, almost 100 percent of allegations that are multiple prove TRUE.

        11. metoosupporter says:

          prove? are you invited to watch crime? how many rape tapes come along with these things aye?

        12. RENIE says:

          I WHOLE HEARTLY AGREE WITH YOU REGARDLESS IF THIS IS FOR SUPREME COURT OR A FREAKING PARKING TICKET. WE ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. IT IS NOT THE BURDEN OF THE ACCUSED TO PROVE INNOCENCE IT IS THE BURDEN OF THE ACCUSER MEANING THE STAATE PROSECUTOR TO PROVE GULITY AND DEPENDING WHAT COURT A PERSON IS IN MAKES IT BEYOND A REASONBLE DOUBT OR BEYOND A DOUBT. AND OF COURSE JURY INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED BY THE JUDGE. MOST CITIZENS HAVE NEVER SAT IN A COURTROOM OR HAS NO IDEA HOW OUR COURTS OPERATE. GREAT THAT COULD MEAN YOU ARE GOOD CITIZEN NOT BREAKING CIVIL OR CRIMINL LAWS.

ALSO ALL THOSE WHO ARE CRYING OUT AGAINST WOMEN OR MEN WHO SUPPORT THE NOTION INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY THEN I SUGGEST EACH OF YOU TAKE SOME TIME AND CAREFULLY READ THE SALEM WITH TRAILS. . THIS IS A STORY THT WILL EXPLAIN EXACTLY WHY BELIEFS AND EMOTIONS AND KNEE JERK REACTIONS ARE NOT A GOOD BARAMETER IN JUDGING FACTS. SO TO THOSE ON THIS BLOG WHO CANNOT SIT FOR MORE THAN ONE HOUR AND SLOWLY USE THIER BRAIN NOT “FEELINGS: AND EMOTIONS BUT THOUGHT FACTS AND GOOD JUDGEMENT. STOP REACTING AND DO SOME RESEARCH ON ALL THE FACTS. FOR INSTANT DID YOU ALL KNOW THAT THE SAFEWAY STORE DR FORD TESTIFIED THAT HAD TWO DOORS AND SHE HAD HER MOTHER GO IN ONE DOOR AND SHE ANOTHER AND SHE RAN INTO MARK JUDGE…. WELL WOULD YOU BE SHOCKED IF I TOLD YOU THAT SAFEWAY STORE WAS NOT BUILT UNTIL 1986 NOT 1982 AS FORS INDICATED AND ALL SAFEWAY STORES NARION WIDE HAD ONLY ONE DOOR IN AND OUT UNTIL 1990 WHEN SAFEWAY HAD DONE REMOLDS ON THE FEW STORES LEFT OPEN AFTER A HUGE DOWNSIZE. THEIR IS SO MANY OTHER THINGS TO THINK. IF YOU HAD YOUR BESTEST GIRLFRIEND AND LETS SAY THAT HAPPEND TO FORD AND SHE TAN OUT OF HOUSE. IF THAT WAS YOU WASK YOURSELF WOULD YOU LEFT YOUR BESTEST FRIND ALONE IN THE HOUSE WITH THOSE RAPER BOYS ALL DRUNK? HELL NO YOU WOULD OF ATLEAST SCREAMED TO HER RUN GET OUT FOLLOW ME.

        My, my my praying that God reliveaves you of that Reverend title because it is clear by your ignorant statement that you are far,far, far from being a “Reverand”. This is a spiritual battle, make no mistake! I’m not certain you fully understand the consequences of your actions. If you are leading in this manner the blood of those that follow you are on YOUR hands and YOU will judged for it by Jesus. It says so in the Word of God, which you obviously don’t comprehend.Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived,God is NOT mocked, whatever a man soweth that also shall he reap. Praying for complete salvation, in Jesus name…Amen!

      7. Todd Copeland says:

        I think it is ironic, when people come to their own conclusions and judge another person, based on “media” reporting. The beautiful part of this country is that you are innocent until “proven” guilty, in a court of law. He said, she said is not evidence. As a matter of fact, there has been absolutely NO evidence produced so far. Claims are merely heresay and must have something else to validate.

        Sadly, we live in a society that convicts a person on public opinion and “claims” – despite fact. The Democrats know this and have exploited social media, as well as news media, to destroy anyone who stands in their way. That has been proven, over and over again. But, by the time their part in it is proven, it is already too late. Lives are destroyed.

        You are obviously speaking from emotion and given the claims, who wouldn’t be? The accusations sound pretty bad. But, consider the fact there is no real proof of anything. Consider the fact that it is 30-36 years after and that not even eye-witnesses that have been suggested by the accusers, have any knowledge of the events or actions of the accused doing anything. Consider the multitude of FBI investigations the accused has been through, over the last 12 years especially…that resulted in nothing being found. Nothing. Then, consider the fact that, the Democrats knew about the accusations for nearly 2 months and said nothing. Democrats did not bring questions up regarding any accusations, during any questioning…until last minute, right before Kavanaugh was about to be approved. The Democrats referred and secured the attorney for the accuser. Finally, consider the fact that the Democrats have done the same things with other Republican nominees, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT. Then, after elections, all these accusers just disappear. This is not a coincidence. This is an agenda.

        I am the first person to stick up for women, who have been abused or assaulted. I am a father of 5, with 3 daughters – 1 of whom was killed by her boyfriend. I do not take accusations lightly. However, in this situation so far, this only fits the pattern of the agenda and campaign by the Democrats, to regain power and they have proven time and time again, they do not care about laws or ethics…they do not care who they hurt…to get the outcome they believe they will get. This is most likely, given everything so far.

        Satan “does” have a part in all this. He makes us quick to anger, quick to judgement and quick to negativity overall. The path the Democrats have been on has been one of power, money, corruption, lies and manipulation. They give words of caring, but have a history of not. It is not God leading them into the actions they have taken. Whether or not there is any validity to any of the claims mounted on Kavanaugh, the Democrats chose to use this to further their own agenda – NOT because they care so much about the accuser(s).

        Shalom to you and yours.

        1. Karl Haye says:

          Unfortunately I can’t help but believe that many otherwise sincerely believing evangelicals having named the name of Christ and purposefully departed from evil have fallen into the clutches of a modern antichrist who has blasphemed the word of God through his filthy, heathenish lifestyle, perpetual arrogance and foolhardy embrace of the gods of this world. They have been blinded and have fallen away. To support the vile policies of those currently in power is to cede free agency to debased ruthlessness. The moral center cannot hold and everywhere the ceremony of innocence has been drowned in a sea of political hypocrisy. I pray God opens the eyes of true believers before it is too late.

        2. Lauren says:

          You are so right. Do not judge until proven guilty. Why did it take so long to expose themselves. I do not believe these women until I see prove. Stop believing the Media.

        3. Justin Martin says:

          I am sick of people saying this is a case of innocence versus guilt- ANYONE AND EVERYONE with this notion has this situation wrong right from the start. The Supreme Court Nomination IS A JOB INTERVIEW PERIOD!!!!! If you go to a job interview and someone questions your integrity at it is it professional to YELL at them and ASK THEM IF THEY HAVE THE SAME ISSUES? Is it right for part of the interviewing panel prevent background information from the rest of those performing that interview? Is it right for when over 50 people wanted to prevent information to these individuals via through our FBI department to only have 9 out of the 50 have their evidence presented. But yet this Kavanaugh hearing was fair for any of 3 the individuals with claims, right? Now with this said if I was at a JOB INTERVIEW and anyone performing my hiring process found ANY SINGLE FLAW with so many people eligible and qualified for THIS POSITION, do you think I would of gotten this job, PERIOD? AS I SAID AT THE BEGINNING THIS WASN’T A INNOCENCE UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY COURT CASE BECAUSE NO CHARGES WERE ON THE LINE THAT WILL COME IF IMPEACHMENT CHARGES COME AGAINST KAVANAUGH DOWN THE ROAD. THIS WAS A FLIPPING JOB INTERVIEW THAT YES BOTH SIDE SCREWED THESE VICTIMS OVER BY AND FOR POLITICAL GAINS. THE DEMOCRATS FOR NOT STARTING THIS INVESTIGATION CORRECTLY AS SOON AS IT BECAME WIND OF AND BY THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BUT TRULY WERE SCREWED BY THE PARTISAN POLITICS OF THE LAST 2 YEARS BY THE OLD FARTS WHO HAVE PROVEN AGAIN THAT THEY BELIEVE THEIR MONEY AND INFLUENCE AS REPUBLICAN SENATORS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE TRUTH. I HOPE EACH AND EVERYONE THAT VOTED YES DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN ALIKE ENJOY THEIR NICE PLACE IN HELL FROM THEIR DECISIONS IN THIS REGARD. BUT MCCONNELL HAS SAID FOR 2 YEARS HIS JOB IS NO MATTER THE CONSEQUENCES IN DOING SO WAS TO HOLD OFF ALL DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATIONS FOR SUPREME JUSTICE UNTIL WE HAD A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT AND COME HELL OR HIGH WATER HE WAS GOING TO GET 2 JUSTICES CONFIRMED IN THIS TIME. CONGRATULATIONS MCCONNELL MAY GOD NOT HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL BY ALLOWING 2 LYING SCUMBAGS CONTROL YOUR ACTIONS AND HAVE THOSE 2 COERCE YOU INTO VOTING KAVANAUGH AS A MEMBER OF OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM.
          With this said from here out every hearing in and involving this Supreme Justice should point to the over 250 judges and professors of the judicial system to point where none of these individuals feel he is fit for his position to hear or vote on any cases from any point of view since he is so partisan by the RIGHT WING (CONSERVATIVE MORALS) using his own words that there will be no way to get a fair and just trial in any of his court proceedings going forward.

          GOOD JOB MCCONNELL AND THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS FOR THROWING AWAY YOUR CAREERS FOR SOMEONE WHO IF THE LAWYER REPRESENTING IN CLIENT IN HIS COURT WILL USE THIS ALL TO HAVE HIM REMOVED FROM ANY HEARINGS GOING FORWARD.

          1. Gerardo Defendini says:

            Your language. Very pastoral of you. Let me see. I work for the unemployment office so I know what a job interview is like. A job interview may NOT ask if anyone has accused you of anything. In fact, the applications for employment only ask about CONVICTIONS, not even arrests. Got that? Tell me, if your ex, or someone does not like you, calls an employer and simply alledges you did something to her, no evidence, 4 wittnesses that do not back her up, and the employer states he or she will not hire you because of that, what would you do? This person waited over 30 years, not one single witness willing to back it up, and we should believe her because of what. I we are to have equality when it comes to gender, we have to understand that women are EQUALLY capable of making mistakes and even lying. I myself, believe evidence, and there is no evidence here.

          2. Iconoclast says:

            Very astute response, Gerardo. Graci tanti.

        Trump, as a serial adulterer, is standing right there with Satan, oh, and With Kavanaugh as well.

        1. Bruce Sutka says:

          Right on brother.

        2. Lauren says:

          Why are you judging the president. Others presidents have had affairs. Bill Clinton, John F. Kennedy and many more. So why are you picking on Trump.

          1. Donald Schmidt says:

            That’s just an excuse for evil to thrive. By that logic, others have killed people, committed atrocities, etc., so I guess it’s moral and acceptable for anyone else to do it too.

          2. Justin Martin says:

            AFFAIRS = CONSENT, SEXUAL ABUSE, SEXUAL HARASSMENT, RAPE = NO CONSENT. IS ADULTERY WRONG, I BELIEVE SO AND THE CHRISTIAN TEACHING SAY SO BUT RAPE, SEXUAL ABUSE, AND SEXUAL HARASSMENT IS MORE THAN AN AFFAIR-PERIOD!!!

          3. Gerardo Defendini says:

            Unaware of any president that “killed people”. Aware of one senator, Ted Kennedy, that did kill someone and he remained a democrat senator.

      9. Hoss Green says:

        Are you ignorant,or just stupid?

      10. Donna Shinn says:

        Satan is such an easy out for those not yet grown into being accountable for their own urges, emotions, and actions. Evil is a strong word to throw about at things we dont want. Thrown at those especially that might hold our feet to the fire of honesty, responsibility, and our repressed issues. How one has treated others before it was important to their professional life is important for an appointment to such a high seat in our nation. His judgements and perceptions will effect many lives for the rest of his life.
        He demonstrated I think more than just anger for being falsely accused as he flabber jawed around and lied to the Senate about his drinking – so rude and disrespectful to the authorities. He lied to the Senate about his degree of drinking in college/highschool. Made jokes about it? Why would an intelligent well educated man with such legal knowledge do that? Makes me wonder just what he feels so guilty about or fearful about?
        Lots of guys drink inappropriately at that stage of life, so telling the truth and giving direct clear answers would have better served. I could see clearly his leaning towards rage indicating repressed issues. Can only imagine what it would have been like if he were drunk. He lost control and shot himself in the foot trying to evade something really bothering him. Maybe it was embarrassment about his drinking or maybe more. So he coped with his stress by misleading and lying, trying to eat up the Senators time to question. I dont call that functional coping.
        So putting aside the charge of sexual inappropriateness, does this guy have the dispossession to have a top level critical position in our nation for life? Could there be another who’s ability to be impartial / objectively fair, and cope better under stress available for this position? We the People deserve the best for this high ranking position in our nation. This is his job interview.

      11. Veronica Deevers says:

        Look to Hillary Clinton if you want to see a nasty drunk. MULTIPLE photos of her taken while campaigning no less, chugging away on alcoholic drinks. Kavanaugh did no wrong. This whole thing is because he is pro life. And so am I.

          You are so correct, people are always ready to judge why do they not look at themselves in the mirror. Iam sure they are not perfect. Lots of college kids drank and made stupid mistakes. But like I said I do not believe these women until there is some prove.

      12. preacher richard h. says:

        A Christian Preacher talks about Satin an Evil among us and people have a fit or talk about the Middle ages.
        THE BIBLE SAYS Evil and satin walk the earth to find weak folks to manipulate and we See it Everyday

        Mass hysteria is just around the corner when ANYONE can be accused of Horrific deeds Without any proof and is Presumed GUILTY Just on Hearsay . It is happening everyday a false story or accusation is uttered out of someone’s mouth, It takes a heart an spirit Filled with hate and EVIL To Lie .

        Think now to your high school or college days, Someone You don’t EVEN Know but went to School with can Accuse YOU or your Children of Rape or assault An Could destroy your Whole family , Or your job, Even wind you up in Jail.

        It will spread to Men accusing Women of these Same acts Just for personal Gain. This is All due to EVIL Demons Doing SATINS WILL , with impunity This so called victim some want to believe for Political Reasons only Has Profited Immensely She has 5 ” GO Fund ME ” accounts totaling over 500,000 Bucks
        Now DEMS want to keep the FBI investigation SECRET.

        SOUNDS like The evil lies are to be kept from the Public, BECAUSE they are false Accusations n Politically Motivated at Election Time..

        The DECLINE of MORALS will increase Quickly over the next Decade and Will end in a Bad way for America.

      14. Gerardo Defendini says:

        It is amazing to me how some of the so called “ordained” people talk in blogs.
        Listen, bottom line is what counts. THERE IS ON EVIDENCE AT ALL AGAINST THIS MAN. Ford talked about 4 witnesses, none of them backed her up NOT ONE!!!! What you or I believe about how credible someone sounds is irrelevant as Kavanaough sounded credible also. So, if we can’t use opinions to get to the truth since opinions are just that, opinions, we have to rely on facts and evidence. Does not matter if a person is on trial or applying for a job.
        In a trial, a person is innocent until proven guilty. This keeps the courts from taking uncorroborated accusations and convicting someone that is innocent when your neighbor doesn’t like you and reports you for child abuse without evidence.
        In a job interview, and I know about this being a recruiter for more than 10 years, an employer may ask about CONVICTIONS, not even arrests, much less an accusation that someone made without any evidence.

        Mr. Kavanaough was not even arrested. no arrests, no convictions, a heresay from someone that does not remember the date, the place, does not remember how she got home, does not remember anything and never told anyone for more than 30 years.
        Listen, if we are pushing for equality of treatment between men and women, we have to recognize that a woman is as likely to lie or recall an event wrongly just as much as a man. No gender is more capable than the other. If this happened to you, accused by someone of abusing your child, for example, you would also ask for proof, witnesses, anything. And you would demand, rightly so, that, in absence of proof, whatever accusation is made against you is dropped and not even considered.
        This is not about Trump, Republicans or Democrats. This is about what is fair. I believe the conclusion was fair, and I am extremely disappointed in the way it was poorly handled.

        What is fair for men (We are seeking equality) is fair for women and vice versa.

      15. Lauren says:

        Do you have any prove, no you are just believing the media. Stop judging. You were not there, have you seen him drunk no.

    2. guidvce4 says:

      Wow! Now that we are a few days beyond th hearings and the fur has yet to settle, we are finding out a few things. Factual things, not wishful things.
      The accusers in the Kavanaugh case seem to have some difficulty keeping the stories on track, especially in the bright light of interviews where they suddenly realize anything they say may land them in jail for lying.
      The Ford woman can’t seem to recall the time, place, persons involved(expect for Kavanaugh), and there is no one to back up her story. She also lied about being a “psychologist”. In the state of CA she cannot claim that without being tested and licensed by the state as such. There is evidence of Ford being a leftist activist.
      The Ramirez woman has a similar problem. Unsure of many of the things she swore to just weeks ago. Oh, and did she mention she received an award from a Soros backed organization? And is a leftist activist.
      The Sweatnik(sp?) has recanted her version of her assault from her sworn affadavit so that it barely resembles the original accusation. And, then there is the testimony of an ex-boyfriend who has described her as nuts. Apparently, she has also lied about her college and employment history to get a job. Then sued the company who hired her for some imaginary charge. And is a leftist activist.
      Can any rational thinking human being see the connection between the left and these women? To believe a charge with no facts nor evidence(blue dress, anyone?) because the left is trying to destroy a decent man with an impeccable record is simply nuts. And against the “rule of law” on which this nation is founded.
      Of course, the left has already moved on to other possible avenues of subverting the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh. Like the “ice cube” incident when he was in college. And Trump’s tax records and stuff from 20 yrs ago, or longer. They are desperate.
      Oh yeah, Rev. Dash is entitled to his opinions, and I respect that he has them even if we don’t agree and he seems to believe anything at first sight. Without verifiable facts nor evidence outside of “she said, he said”.
      Just stick to the Constitution and go with the “rule of law”. Facts and evidence do count in any accusation of anything, even sexual assault. Otherwise, we return to witch hunts and the dunking pond method of justice.
      Thank you.

    3. C says:

      It is sick that anyone would defend him at this point. He clearly lied under oath and I frankly believe Ford. He is a wolf in sheep clothing

      1. Gerardo Defendini says:

        You use the word “clearly’ way to broadly. Clearly relies on facts. The only facts are:
        Ford made an accusation she can’t back up, 4 wittnesses she mentions. Not one backs her up, she can’t remember dates, places, how she got home, she claimed to be a psychologist but is not licensed in her state, she waited over 30 years, including all the time Judge Kavanaough served as a judge, to say anything, not one piece of evidence at all.
        Seems to me THIS should be clear to you since Hillary Clinton has been accused dozens of times of wrong doing during her life and no charges brought because “there was not enough evidence”. Following your logic she was “clearly” guilty of Benghazi, the IRS Gestapo, looting the white house when she left, Filegate, etc. Since any of these cases (take your pick) had more evidence, maybe we should have disqualify her to even apply for the job of president based on any or all of these.

        I am sorry but if we all, men and women are to be treated equally, we have to acknowledge that women are as likely to lie, misinterpret or wrongly recall events as men. Evidence must be present and have nothing to do with the accuser’s gender. We should not believe one gender above the other. If you are a true feminist, you have to understand that.

    6. James grainger says:

      What BS….This is not Satan….The Women’s movement is afraid his vote will over legislation concerning women’s rights….
      So out come accusations from thirty plus years ago…If these accusations are true, why did they not surface when he first became a Judge?

      1. John D. Partin says:

        James Grainger, can you seriously not understand why some women wouldn’t immediately come out and accuse their rapists and try to empathize with them at all and put yourself in their place because every man should try to do that and relate to his woman and women, generally, in order to have a successful relationship with them? Most women who have been sexually assaulted or raped (about 2/3rds) never come out with accusations against their attackers at all because of embarrassment, “guilt” or “shame” over it and because police, quite often, victimize them all over again and accuse them of “asking for it—by their clothing or where they were or what time they were there, etc.” and penalize them far more than the attacker!! So, a woman, such as Dr. Ford’s, not coming out with her accusation against Kavanaugh before this openly or even for 30 years is understandable. Besides which, she said that she came out with the accusation because Kavanaugh had been nominated for the Supreme Court and she felt that this information needed to be considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee, so that a sexual predator wouldn’t be put on the highest court in the land!!!! A mere Circuit Court judgeship, quite obviously, even though his appointment to that was terrible, too, wouldn’t be as disgraceful as his appointment to the Supreme Court would be!!!!! He could be any other Conservative, who hadn’t committed this crime, and there wouldn’t be all of this righteous firestorm against him. So, the President should just pick another nominee for the Supreme Court, since there are many qualified individuals who could fill that position (or qualified women candidates). Some women or men might not like any candidate that would be offered by the President for the position, but, at least, we wouldn’t have all of this mess that we are having now about the accused sexual predator Kavanaugh!!!!!

            PS: “A vengeful KID can accuse you of Rape with NO proof, What then?”
            Well, that is one of many reasons that we adult males should avoid associating with kids outside of the company of a responsible adult 3rd parties who can bear witness to the innocence of the circumstance… I practically run away in terror when the too mature (sexualized) for her own good teenage checkout girl asks me if I want help carrying my groceries.

      2. Jason Bender says:

        James grainger, one very obvious reason they did not surface when he first became a Judge: nobody would have cared , paid attention or reported on it when he first became a Judge… and, until now, it wasn’t important enough of an issue to force these brave women to speak up… (removable lower court peon judge is misogynistic almost-rapist prick= yawn-fest, as there are too many worse things to worry about… but, lifetime supreme court judge is misogynistic almost-rapist prick= super urgent and important issue demanding action)

    The people who are going to push this confirmation through are the same people who voted against the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Mostly because it appears they are for violence against women. I am an old white guy, and am ashamed to be such in the company of such dunderheads.

  3. Allen Alexander says:

    I believe that a man who drugs and seduces young women is the one in the employ of the devil. We all abhor lies and the wantabee Supreme Court Justice has told many over the past several days. He needs to step down from his perch and go and try to make amends with God, his wife and his daughters. Furthermore the people pushing so hard for his confirmation need to take a good look at their treatment of the people they have been elected to represent. They have forsaken the people and are only looking out for big business and themselves. They are not representing Americans or America as they have lost their path.

    1. John says:

      You have chosen guilty before innocent – you are not representing American values, as a typical Dem.

      1. William Waugh says:

        Negative. In consideration for such a high authority position it is neccessary to clear the court of public opinion. He ain’t applying for a hotel manager job.

    2. Val Jester says:

      Allen please tell me you are not that shallow. We all thought the first plane into the WTC was an accident. The second plane was a coordinated plan. Same here. The third women? “I observed boys lined up outside the bedroom where a girl was waiting to rape her… eventually the same thing happened to me…”. Are you freaking kidding me? You are falling for a con job perpetrated by the democrat party. The same people who held this information from July waiting for the right time the harm Judge Kavanaugh. The timing was not meant to help the victim. This is a con job by people who believe that any means justifies the end.

      1. Jason Bender says:

        Incorrect analysis. Per usual, the screed coming from the conservative Trumpsters is, to a point, 100% either lies, incorrect, intentionally distortive or bat $^&% crazy – often all of the above.
        (1) That accuser 3 is possibly not credible has ZERO relevance on the credibility assessment of accusers 1 and 2. Likewise your invocation of the 9-11 attacks, (Shame on you for the latter, BTW.)
        (2) There is ZERO evidence of co-ordination or similar origins between the accusers.
        (3) re “waiting for the right time to harm Kavanaugh, that most definitely is not the case, The info releases were far, far to late for maximal “harm.” The way it happened (the way it is now) things are JUST BEGINNING to snowball just days or hours before the critical vote…
        (4) re “not meant to help the victim” – nobody claims it was meant to help the victim.
        (5) re “believes any means justifies the end.” – ha! PROJECTION MUCH? That so much describes you better than us liberals that I am tempted to use the words “textbook example” and “delusional lack of self awareness” and “bordering upon frank clinical psychosis”.

        1. Lori says:

          And all three women wanted the FBI investigation. Kavanaugh would not say he wanted that. That seems a bit strange for a guy that claims innocents. Now he has no choice. I hope the truth is found.

        2. Gary Minnis says:

          You completely lost me with your ‘Trumpster’ comment. With that you show your complete bias. You are part of the problem.

          1. Iconoclast says:

            Oh yes. He just did everything he accused the Trump administration of doing.

  4. Jim D says:

    Well, I guess if Satan and the demons is synonymous with Senate Democrats, then I guess he is right.

    Now, if we can grow up for a second and stop believing in invisible forces, good or evil, exercising influence over us, let’s look at the facts. There are a lot of people that are jumping on the #metoo movement and claim that every woman is to be believed. That said, ipso facto every accused man is guilty of whatever crime a woman says. What is the likelihood of that? Every man guilty? Your sons, brothers, fathers, all guilty of sex crimes? Yeah, I don’t think so.

    The timing of all these allegations is also troubling to me. If Diane Franken-Feinstein is such a champion of women, why did she bury this allegation for over six weeks? She could have presented it right away and didn’t. She could have asked Kavanaugh about it when she had the private meeting with him and didn’t. She held on to it until right before the vote, and threw into the proceedings like a kid throwing a stink bomb into a church service. A shameful tactic for a sitting senator, IMHO. But then again, she is from California.

    Let’s look at the nature of Ford’s accusations. It’s all hazy bits of nothing. She doesn’t know when or where it happened. She doesn’t know who owned the house where the party was held. She doesn’t know how she got home. I believe SHE believes something happened to her, and she needs to work that out for her own sake. The facts are she did not attend the same school as Kavanaugh. He claims he did not attend such a party, and his friend corroborates his statement. She has no one that witnessed the alleged event, and apparently told no one of it after it happened. Hmmmm…

    Ford named several people that could corroborate her story. So far, at least one of them said they have never seen Kavanaugh and knew nothing about him participating in such an act. I have a feeling more will cave in.

    Let’s also remember that Brett Kavanaugh’s mother was the judge that presided over Ford’s parents’ case regarding the foreclosure of their home, and sided against them, causing them to lose their home. Motivation? Could be.

    As for the polygraph, let’s remember, it’s not a “lie detector”. There is no such thing. We don’t know what questions were asked, and what the actual results of the test showed. All we’ve been told is “she passed.” By the way, who paid for the test? Surely it wasn’t her idea. If she never had the notion to come forward, why would she want the test? Doesn’t make sense. Follow the money, people, and much will be revealed.

    The second accuser said she was very drunk, and there are significant gaps in her memory. Oh yeah, she’s credible… NOT!

    The third accuser, Swetnick, was brought in by Avenatti, the textbook definition of scumbag lawyer. Her accusations of gang rape are so outrageous, I don’t know how anyone can take them seriously.

    Strangely, no one ever went to the police. No one ever told their friends. No one has a shred of evidence, not even a picture of Kavanaugh at any of these parties. The Dems keep calling for an FBI investigation. The FBI does not investigate crimes of this nature. That is the duty of local, and sometimes state police. Besides, Kavanaugh has been investigated by the FBI not once, not twice, but six times! And nothing of this nature has ever come up. And when the FBI does a background check on you for the positions that Kavanaugh has held, they aren’t just looking to see if you’ve been balancing your checkbook. Those investigations are extremely thorough. After all, he had access to the White House. He sat on one of the highest appellate courts in the land. They don’t just let anybody do that.

    I honestly feel bad for all parties involved. His accusers have been caught up in a political s#!t storm, and they are going to wind up paying dearly for being played by the Dems. I believe something happened to Ford, but it wasn’t Kavanaugh. The others? I’m not so sure. The may be nothing more than political pawns. And you know what usually happens to pawns in chess.

    Kavanaugh has one shot at having a quasi normal life and career after this. He has to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Everything else is off the table. If he is not confirmed, his career is over. He will be the pariah of a process that was once revered and has now turned into a three-ring circus. He will have lost all respect from colleagues, friends and family. No one would be able to look at him and not think to themselves, did he?”. Even his wife and daughters will have their doubts. It’s a sad day for all involved. It’s a sad day for our country. Thank you, Senate, for turning our once great nation into a global joke.

    4. Bro. Chas says:

      Jim D., thank you for your rational and mature comments.

    5. Brother Phil says:

      Jim,

      This process is nothing new. Political nominations have always been toxic and will only become more so as our country becomes more polarized.

      Kavanaugh lied on the stand to the Senate. That right there disqualifies him for a lifetime appointment. His own friends claim he was a drunk. Having a drinking problem shouldn’t disqualify you but lying about it means that you should not be on a court where you control the fate of millions.

      There seems to be an awful short memory as of late about the Senate and judges. Republicans refused hundreds of judge appointments under president Obama and refused to vote on Merrick Garland. The old adage you reap what you see is more apt than ever.

      Baby boomers are seeing the future of this country and scared at what it looks like. Baby boomers have been very poor stewards of the legacy left by their parents. Tragedy and decisiveness is the legacy they have left. History will not be kind to the Republicans or so called Christians of convenience and intolerance.

      1. Jim D. says:

        Brother Phil, I feel like I keep repeating this, but hey, I’ll do it one more time. There is no proof that Kavanaugh lied. There is no proof that Ford lied. This is a case of he-said-she-said. it would be nice if there was a modicum of proof, some little tidbit of evidence to affirm one way or the other, but there isn’t. At least not yet. How credible someone appears on the stand isn’t going to cut it. Kavanaugh has admitted all along he likes to drink beer. I don’t doubt that there were times he was quite drunk, and I don’t think he suggested otherwise. He only said he never blacked out, never woke up somewhere he didn’t expect, never woke up missing his clothes. He admits to having a weak stomach and throwing up. That’s about it.

        I believe something happened to Ford, but maybe she has the details wrong. It strikes me odd that the only detail she’s 100% sure of is who. The when, where, and how?.. she has no idea. That’s not enough to find someone guilty.

        It’s unfortunate that women have felt in the past they could not come forward with accusations of sexual assault. But that was their choice, like it or not. I believe that is changing, but I’m not sure what anyone expects law enforcement to do about it 36 years later. I’m sorry if that sounds harsh, but that is the cold reality of choosing to remain quiet for so many years. I’m not suggesting Kavanaugh did it or didn’t do it. I’m just saying that by delaying making the accusations public for three and a half decades has resulted in the person or persons that are responsible will most likely never be brought to justice.

        Certainly, Christine Ford is a victim. I think she was assaulted many years ago, and it may not have been the episode she described. Her memory is Swiss cheese, and after so many years, the mind tries to fill in holes, even if those holes are filled with erroneous information. But she’s also a victim of the times. In the 1970’s a woman did not always get a fair shake. Many times the victim seemed to be on trial. In court they were asked about drinking and drugs, their manner of dress, if they were flirting or being misleading… All of which was designed to make the witness less credible. I think it’s getting better these days, but I don’t have any first hand knowledge other than what’s in the news.

        I think Ford is also a victim of the machinations created by Senate Democrats. She approached them about her story with one request: Keep it out of the media. And they did… until it was to their advantage to leak the story. Suddenly she is thrust into the spotlight and every detail of her life exposed. Does anyone really think this is going to work out for her in the end? In my opinion this is just another assault on her.

        And like it or not, Kavanaugh is a victim. An unsubstantiated accusation has ruined his life, his family, his career and his reputation. No one on the left wants to admit that the man could be completely innocent of these accusations. But they don’t care. They don’t care that he’ll never be able to teach law again because no university will touch him. He can’t go back to the appellate court. They are even trying to get him booted as a girls basketball coach as if to imply he is also a pedophile.

        But the biggest loser in all of this is the American people. This is a process that has existed for over 200 years, and in the past has been handled with respect and honesty. Now it’s a three-ring circus full of clowns. It’s a shame and an embarrassment to our nation. I’m at the point where I almost don’t care which way it turns out. I just want it over with. As a nation, we’ll get past this. Something else will grab the media’s attention like a dog suddenly seeing a squirrel. Either Kavanaugh will be our next Supreme Court justice, or it will be some other poor bastard that’s going to subject him or her self to this freak show. Either way there is one thing for absolute sure: There are two families, the Fords and the Kavanaughs, that will be irreparably damaged by this event. Neither will walk away feeling like they got what they expected when they entered this circus.

      New York woman, 20, who lied about rapes, appears to roll her eyes in court as she’s jailed for a year. Did any of you read this story Standing beside her lawyer Ryan O’Neill, Nikki Yovino is sentenced one year in jail in Superior Court in Bridgeport, Conn. Thursday, Aug. 23, 2018 for making false rape accusations against two Sacred Heart University football players. Police say Yovino made up the claims because she thought the consensual encounter would damage her relationship with another student. (Brian A. Pounds/Hearst Connecticut Media

    7. Pastor Ron says:

      And, the ignorant minions praise the fool. You started off nicely, then it went south. You have something against people from California? I guess you didn’t like Reagan, huh? Here’s the deal. Conservatives will stop at NOTHING to get their yes men in the Supreme Court.

      These “Ayatollahs of the Christian-Right” (right is a word which here means right-wing, not to be confused with right and wrong) will use any ploy on the ignorant, pseudo-religious Christian minions to foist their belief system on them in order to spread their doctrine of hatred.

      This is nothing new. Republicans promoting their poster-boys for bigotry is a long standing practice (think Clarence Thomas and Robert Bork). At least this newest miscreant is not disguised by his own race as was Clarence Thomas who basically said the NAACP were a bunch of whiners.

      Ted Kennedy’s description of Bork I believe could easily be applied to this, the newest installment of the republican crony.

      Of Bork Kennedy said:

      “Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists would be censored at the whim of government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is often the only protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy.”

      Of course, censorship has found a new form. These days the wild-right can simply dismiss the truth by chanting their newest mantra: “Fake News, Fake News.”

      So, I feel there is evidence enough to show that during his formative years Brett Kavanaugh viewed women as objects to be manipulated, who’s preferences and rights should be viewed as irrelevant. His voting record would prove that his earlier attitudes have persisted. He is quoted as saying: “Obamacare’s mandate for contraception coverage infringes on the rights of religious organizations.” As was Bork’s position, Kavanaugh follows the belief, and I quote: “critical national security need outweighs the impact on privacy occasioned by this program.” This program is a term which here means spying on citizens.

      In Kavanaugh’s America, workers don’t have rights: Kavanaugh wrote a 2016 opinion saying employers can require workers to waive their right to picket in arbitration agreements.

      Under Kavanaugh’s America, the constitutional right to freedom of religion (not just ONE religion) would end. He supported Chief Justice William Rehnquist’s efforts to reverse prior Supreme Court attempts at “erecting a strict wall of separation between church and state.” And this is why the absurd “fake minister” (or minister of hate) Bryan Fischer is hurling these absurd “The Devil is behind it” rants at Kavanaugh’s accusers.

      Kavanaugh’s America would stymie the EPA and have us all breathing polluted air: Kavanaugh wrote a decision that rejected EPA’s attempt to curb air pollution that crosses state lines.

      In Kavanaugh’s America, big banking would be forever be able to bilk the American people with impunity. He wrote an opinion declaring the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a powerful banking industry watchdog first envisioned by Elizabeth Warren, to be unconstitutional. Writing for a three-judge panel, Kavanaugh said the 2010 Dodd-Frank law had wrongly placed “enormous executive power” in the CFPB’s single director, which Republicans and the banking industry want to replace with a multi-member commission. Supporters of the CFPB accused Kavanaugh of acting as a partisan activist, and the constitutionality of the CFPB’s structure was later upheld.

      And, on civil rights? Not good. Civil rights groups and teachers unions were quick to blast the nominee within minutes of Trump’s announcement. The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights decried him as “a direct threat to our civil and human rights,” adding that “he has consistently ruled for the wealthy and powerful.”

      Supreme Court Justices are supposed to be impartial. I know this is a bit of a Utopian dream. But they should NOT be so far to the right that they threaten our constitutional rights and the civil liberties we as Americans hold dear. Men like Kavanaugh would stand behind the Christian version of Sharia law to rule the US. Would witch-burning be far behind? Before you know it, there would be laws against blasphemy, like some third world country. Google: The Christian governor of Jakarta, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, being found guilty of blasphemy against Islam in Indonesia.

    Such nonsense. Given nobody has any actual empirical evidence for “Satan” (which only means ‘adversary’), apparently, ego-driven arguments and accusations are “devil-inspired”? There is nothing supernatural about this situation. It is ego-driven only.

    If anyone can actually prove there is a literal “Satan”, please offer up your evidence with citation. I look forward to it.

      The scriptures refer to Satan as a sentient being. Good enough for me. If you don’t believe scripture what’s the point?

        The mythical story refers to Satan as a sentient being. If you do believe in mythical stories as factually true you are in deep “do do” and will believe anything you read if it suits your mythical belief structure.

        The Harry Potter books make wonderful reading. If you do decide to read them, just know that the stories aren’t true. I’m telling you that, just in case you might want to believe they are.

The old guy white establishment is running scared they may not be able to turn the clock back to 1950’s America, via an overwhelming force on the high court.

      Rev. Rene, you hit the nail on the head. What this proves: there is that group of white guys who go to these private schools, do their dirt, and it’s all fun and games. When they get caught, it is always the woman’s fault. She’s a jezebel or a whore/prostitute who they could not avoid their spell. If this were true, you would not have so many single mothers raising children after the deadbeat dads leave to have another family because this one was too hard, or didn’t work out, or they never wanted children, or their wife wants too much, or they are finding their way.

      This is a potential rapist sitting on the high court overturning Roe v. Wade which means products of rape cannot be aborted. What better way to torture a woman than to have her carry to term the product of rape? He will not like the system when his daughters are preyed upon will he? God gave him daughters for a reason!

  9. BethKCZ says:

    We’re back to the “droit de signeur” (Right of the Lord). During the middle ages, it was the right of the Lord of the Manor to have sex with any bride in his fiefdom on her wedding night. Thus, it became customary to have premarital sex and marry a pregnant bride – the Lord of the Manor might exercise his right, but at least he wouldn’t be raising the nobility’s children!

    This is in Catholic (Christian) Europe. We’re going back to “the good old days”.

    Rape, including rape of children (both boys and girls) happened, but was not discussed. Now, it’s not even under the radar! Men in high places are discovered raping children, raping their own children, raping underlings. The most anti-gay activists are discovered having sex acts with other men.

    We still pay lip service that “it’s wrong”. We still vote for them. Now we’re appointing them to the highest courts. I guess it’s okay then if somebody rapes your daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother – and you. Boys will be boys.

    It’s somewhat taboo to talk about. It’s not at all taboo to do, even openly.

    1. Jason Bender says:

      Why just the wedding night?

      1. Gwendolyn Lord says:

    3. Jim D says:

      So I take it you feel Kavanaugh is guilty, without an investigation, without a trial, without any real evidence. What if you’re wrong?

      1. John D. Partin says:

        Jim D, what possibility of an investigation or trial or real evidence is there that would be able to convince you or anyone else when the Senate Republicans refuse to let the FBI investigate these women’s charges, and appoint a special female prosecutor to question Dr. Ford and any other witnesses (so that they can hide behind her skirts!), and blow off and dismiss these women’s charges, anyway, and side with an accused rapist over them—-just because their fellow Republican President Trumpelstiltskin nominated him, and otherwise manipulate and distort the process here? Let those Republicans start fully cooperating with the Democrats and stop playing political games and then we can if we are right or wrong about Kavanaugh. Until then, we won’t be able to see about it. Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen!!!

        1. Jim D says:

          John, the Senate Republicans are not preventing the FBI from doing anything. Senate Republicans do not control the FBI. The truth of the matter is the FBI does not investigate allegations of sex crimes unless they take place on federal property. And as I stated in an earlier post, the FBI has already conducted six extremely thorough background investigations on Kavanaugh, and not even a whiff of sexual abuse has ever surfaced.

          Also, the timing of how this all shook out has to ring the suspicion bell in everyone’s head, especially considering the length of time Sen. Diane Franken-Feinstein held on to this allegation before making it public. She did not bring it up during the confirmation hearings, nor did she confront Kavanaugh with it during their private meeting. Why the delay? Because it makes for a good tactic when the hearings weren’t going her way.

          John, you clearly seem passionate that Kavanaugh is guilty. Too bad you are not as passionate about truth and justice. I realized this three-ring circus is not a court of law, but it would seem to me the presumption of innocence until proven guilty should still apply. If anyone is turning the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice into a political dust-up, it’s the Senate Democrats and people like you… people who are so adamant not to have Kavanaugh as the next justice because it would mean another conservative jurist… another clear thinking individual and not someone that believes the Constitution needs to be “reinterpreted” (read “should be abolished in favor of socialism”), that you would believe Brett Kavanaugh is literally from another planet and therefore cannot sit on the highest court in the land.

          1. John D. Partin says:

            Jim D, were you watching the same Senate hearings that I was watching? The hearings that I was watching had Democratic Senators repeatedly asking Judge Kavanaugh if he would like the FBI to investigate the allegations by Dr. Ford and these other women against him and clear this matter up and would tell the Senate Republicans to permit that to happen, which he repeatedly refused and hemmed and hawed about and tried to pass the buck to the Senate Judiciary Committee about. The hearings that I was watching had Senator Grassley saying that the FBI doesn’t need to investigate this matter and so doesn’t need to be brought in to investigate any further. But what does Senator Grassley or any other Republican Senator have to say about the FBI’s investigating anything, if the “Senate Republicans do not control the FBI”? If the FBI “does not investigate allegations of sex crimes unless they take place on federal property”, then I guess that all victims of sexual assault and rape should try to struggle their way over to the nearest post office or other federal property while they are under attack, so that their charges can be investigated by the FBI, and the Senate Democrats were “talking nonsense” when they kept asking Judge Kavanaugh to have the FBI investigate this matter, since they must not know the law, obviously, as well as you do. That was facetiousness, in case you don’t know. The assault on Dr. Ford took place at a party, not federal property, and the Senate Democrats were still asking him to invite an FBI investigation of it, and so, quite obviously, the FBI can investigate sex crimes at other locations than just federal property. You said that the FBI “has already conducted six extremely thorough background investigations on Kavanaugh, and not even a whiff of sexual abuse has ever surfaced”, but “not a whiff of sexual abuse has ever surfaced”, according to you and everyone else who just automatically believes anything that Kavanaugh says, and none of that in reality are, quite obviously, two different things—-because there wouldn’t still be any demand for more investigation of this matter if everything had really been investigated fully and ALL!!!!! witnesses questioned by the FBI. So, obviously, more still remains to be investigated and there are still more questions and loose ends that need to be answered. Your claiming, along with Kavanaugh, that this is “all just a left-wing conspiracy against him” is ridiculous because Dr. Ford doesn’t have any political agenda or a political bone in her body and isn’t being used for any left-wing political agenda, but just spoke sincerely and tearfully and openly, whereas Kavanaugh was angry and partisan and even questioning the Democratic Senators there about their drinking habits (they were there to question him, not him there to question them!!!), which I have seen experts on sex crimes say on TV is typically “entitled and belligerent” behavior from sexual predators. These experts said that if Kavanaugh were on trial for sexual assault, his behavior alone would convince a jury of his guilt. Where there is smoke, there is fire!!! Why doesn’t Kavanaugh’s behavior at the hearing convince you that he is the one with the right-wing political agenda and the pawn of a right-wing conspiracy against Democrats and the country. Dr. Ford was credible in her testimony and Kavanaugh wasn’t. That is all that there is to it!!! How can you honestly look at both of their appearances in the Senate hearing and compare them and not also see that she was far more credible than Kavanaugh was?!!! There is another week long investigation by the FBI of Kavanaugh being called for by the Donald and we can only hope that it won’t be just another token and show “investigation” in order to get people off his back and so that he can say “See, I investigated it!!! What else do you want? You are just never satisfied!!! Let’s have a vote now”. I don’t have a problem, more than usual, with Kavanaugh’s being conservative, but only with his not being open to more investigation of this matter and transparent. He could be the King of All Conservatives, for all that I care about that, just as long as he and Trumpelstiltskin let the FBI fully investigate this matter and question everybody involved in it or who knows anything about it and not tie their hands or limit them in any way. If Kavanaugh is really innocent of these charges, then he has nothing to worry about and no reason to not let the FBI do whatever it does here and if he isn’t innocent of these charges, we all need to know that and he doesn’t deserve a seat on the Supreme Court. Let’s find out, one way or another, and then he can conservatize his ASS!!!! completely off, for all that I care about that——until he gets impeached, that is!!!

          2. Jason Bender says:

            John Partin – Awesome post! Typed or voice to text? (just curious… lol 😉

          3. Jim D says:

            John D. Partin, you have argued your viewpoint with all the illogic of my ex-wife. From my experience with her I have learned there is nothing to be gained by further debate since you will pick and choose what you like and disregard the rest.

            For example, Kavanaugh did not ask for an FBI investigation because he has no authority to do that. He did, however, say he would fully cooperate with any investigation the committee deems appropriate. The fact that you are so pissed that he didn’t jump up and scream, “FBI, INVESTIGATE ME!” is utterly ridiculous.

            Another example, the TV “experts” that said Kavanaugh’s behavior alone (meaning no other facts in evidence) during the hearing “would convince a jury of his guilt.” Seriously? Were these so-called “experts” featured on CNN (Corrections, Not News)? I’ve heard other experts say he was understandably angry, even defiant, because was being accused of a heinous crime, his family threatened, his name and reputation dragged through the mud. Wouldn’t you be a bit angry if you were wrongly accused and all of that crap happened to you?

            How about the six FBI investigations that were already done? They did not find any incidents of sexual abuse because, according to you, because “… [I] and everyone else who just automatically believes anything that Kavanaugh says…” It’s not what I and everyone else believes. It’s the FBI’s findings from the six investigations. What part of that don’t you get? They didn’t find anything. Get over it.

            I could go on and on, shooting holes in that diatribe of crap you wrote, but I won’t because it won’t do any good. It is clear to me that you hate the President, this administration, and everything associated with him. You still haven’t gotten over the election, and my guess is you never will. And your hatred runs so deep that it compromises your ability to evaluate ALL the data, not just the stuff you like, and render a thoughtful conclusion. As I have stated all along, I feel bad for Ford, Kavanaugh, and the American people. I don’t think Ford has any agenda other than to try to figure out her past and heal the wounds. I wish her good luck with that. This whole circus is going to set her progress back for a long time. She was used by Senate Democrats. She wanted all of this to remain out of the public, and it was leaked by Franken-Feinstein’s office, which makes sense since her office was the only party that had the information.

            John, I’m not suggesting you jump off the Democrat ship. It’s not my place to tell people their politics. But I will suggest you put your obvious anger aside. Go back and really evaluate what everyone actually says. Don’t get caught up in Christine Ford’s meek and mild demeanor, her deer-in-the-headlights look, her vocal fry. Don’t be swayed by Kavanaugh’s anger, his belligerence, his tears. Listen to what everyone says, put that together with the facts, the REAL facts, not just what you or anyone else believes to be true. Use your own brain with no influences from the media or anyone else, and come up with an answer. I’m not suggesting it will be the same as mine, but at least you can say it is honest.

      Why just on the wedding night?

      1. BethKCZ says:

        Effectively, they could. The reason that it was “okay” on the wedding night was that the women were married, therefore no longer were they protecting “their virtue”. Plus, if they got pregnant, the woman would not be unmarried and pregnant without support, but would have the support of her husband – who knew it was possible he was the father. It was an attempt to spread their genes farther. It was an attempt to terrorize the young brides and to offend the young bridegrooms who had nothing to say in the matter, nor could he protect his wife from this.

        Thus, they married already-pregnant women, who were no longer virgins, and thus could not be impregnated by the Lord’s semen.

        1. Jason Bender says:

          WOW! As messed up as the world is, and it *is* pretty messed up – those people that are fortunate enough to live in the present day in a nation that is a 1st world industrialized liberal democracy (classical use of the word ‘liberal’) truly live in a utopian paradise compared to our ancestors whose lives predate the era of industrialism, electronics and modern medicine.

      2. John D. Partin says:

        Jason Bender, my post was typed. Thanks for asking and I’m glad you liked it.

      3. John D. Partin says:

        Jim D, your “response” here is a common tactic of the right and, apparently, misogynists, too, that “you have argued your viewpoint with all the illogic of my ex-wife” and “from my experience with her I have learned that there is nothing to be gained by further debate since you will pick and choose what you like and disregard the rest”. It certainly sounds as though your thinking is affected by your anger at your ex-wife and so you are merely projecting all of that on to other people. Why would you assume that all other thinking on this matter than your own must be “illogical” and, especially, that all women’s thinking about it must be “illogical”? That certainly is very misogynistic on your part—or, if not, will pass for it until actual misogynism comes along!!! Your argument against that thinking is what is referred to as an ad hominem argument, which means attacking the person who made the statement, instead of just dealing with the statement itself and considering it on its own merits and leaving the person out of the consideration, and ad hominem arguments are notoriously illogical and prejudicial. You can’t argue against someone else’s “illogic” while using actual illogic yourself, since that is trying to have it both ways!!! “There is nothing to be gained by further debate since you will pick and choose what you like and disregard the rest” is merely evasiveness and your saying that somebody has to already agree with you in order “not to be picking and choosing” and to be “really honest”. Why would you assume that and make yourself the center of the universe around which everyone else must revolve, in order to be “thinking clearly and honestly”? Yes, Kavanaugh said in his opening statement that he was “open to any investigation of him”, but then, in the course of his testimony, he undid all of that by not stating that he wants an FBI investigation to just clear this matter up once and for all and get it over with and behind him. He can’t have it both ways, anymore than you can, and say that he is “open to any investigation of him” and then turn right around and not come right out and agree unreservedly to an FBI investigation of himself. Yes, I know for a fact that an innocent man would come right out and say “FBI, INVESTIGATE ME!!!! BRING IT THE HELL ON!!! I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE AND CAN ONLY BE PROVEN INNOCENT BY THAT AND SO LET’S DO IT!!!!”, which is the opposite of what he did: hemming and hawing and trying to pass the buck and shift the responsibility to the Senate Judiciary Committee!!!! I have no doubt that a genuinely innocent man would also be very angry at being falsely accused and at the damage done to his wife, mother, and family by all of this that has happened to Kavanaugh, but the difference between an innocent person’s anger about this and a guilty person’s anger about this is what they do: the innocent person’s saying “BRING ON THE INVESTIGATION!!!!” to clear his name once and for all and the guilty person’s trying to dodge the issue and pass the buck and shift the blame!!! No doubt, Kavanaugh is genuinely angry AT GETTING CAUGHT AND LOSING HIS CHANCE AT A SUPREME COURT JUDGESHIP”, not because he has been “unjustly accused”, which he hasn’t!!! He was asked directly if he would want an FBI investigation of him and this matter, not what the Senate Republicans want, and he just refused to directly answer that question and say “YES!!!”. That might sound like an “innocent” man to you, but not to me or anyone else who just doesn’t automatically accept everything that Kavanaugh says or does as true. Again, even six or 6,666 investigations of Kavanaugh aren’t full investigations, if there are still questions that remain to be answered and people who know something about this case left to interview and question about it—and even you, hopefully, can’t believe that all of that has already been done!!! Those six “investigations” were merely token and show “investigations”, so that the Donald could say that he “looked into it, alright, and now let’s have the vote!”. When a sincere, tearful, and open woman like Dr. Ford’s testimony doesn’t stack up, according to you, against this angry, belligerent, and former (or even current) beer drinker’s (who could have forgotten what he did to Dr. Ford in a drunken stupor and blackout) testimony to prove to you that she is telling the truth and he is lying, then it can only be your conservative and Republican bias and misogyny that is keeping you from seeing that and admitting it!!! I could shoot holes in your arguments and “thinking” all day long, too, but feel that it would also be useless, since you have already made up your mind about this and don’t want to be bothered with any actual logic or the facts or common sense!!!!

        1. Jim D says:

          Like I said, John, I’m not wasting my time with you. You claim I said things that is did not say. You claim I have anger towards my ex-wife. I do not. You do not know her or me, and you are an idiot for even making such a statement. You rely on non-existent facts and statements that are not said. He’s guilty because he did NOT say “investigate me?” Are you seriously going to lead with that? Well, at least I know you’re not a lawyer. You call me a misogynist and that I think all women are illogical. I am not a misogynist and I never said all women are illogical. I only applied that description to two people: my ex-wife and you. Don’t claim I said things I never said.

          I never said someone has to agree with me, or they are “just picking and choosing.” I never said you have to agree with me. I did say that you pick and choose facts and statements that bolster your opinion and leave out anything that disagrees with you. Don’t claim I said things I never said.

          The six FBI investigations he has already been through were not “for show” for Trump’s benefit. They are what is required by law, and I’m sure the FBI would be less than thrilled with your assessment of their efforts. And at least five of those investigations took place before Trump was even President. Your statement is… oh, what’s the word… oh, yes… ILLOGICAL.

          As far as this being an ad hominem argument, it may appear that way. I am more than capable of refuting nearly every bit of non-evidence and illogic you put forth. The other side of it is that your ignorance and obstinance annoy me.

          I will spell this out one last time because.. well… you’re a dumbass. This is a simple case of he-said-she-said. There is no evidence to prove Kavanaugh is guilty of the crime with which he has been accused. I’ve said all along I believe something happened to Christine Ford, but I think she has the details wrong. After 36 years, that’s understandable. The handful of people she has named cannot corroborate her story. The burden of proof is on her. Kavanaugh cannot prove a negative. No one can. He has at least 100 people that have known him throughout his life and career, all of whom have vouched for his character, and some that knew him at the time of the incident cannot give any credence to her accusation.

          Contrary to what you believe, I have not made up my mind on this matter. I look at the evidence, which right now only seems to be Kavanaugh’s calendar (not much to go on, but it’s the only bit of physical evidence either one has presented), and I listen to their statements. Based on that, I’m inclined to believe him. I will wait for the seventh FBI investigation and see what they can find. You, however, like the Senate Democrats, have already made up your mind. He is guilty, and there’s nothing anyone can say or do to change your mind. That’s your right. Enjoy it. But I am curious what your opinion will be if the FBI comes back with absolutely nothing… or better yet, evidence that completely exonerates Kavanaugh.

          Now go, and annoy someone else for a while.

            I come from a different time than most of you people. I was a Democrat most of my earlier life and come from the Winston Churchill observation of life. I spent some time in the Pacific in 1945 as a teenager. I spent thirty years in police work, retried as Chief of Detectives. I am in my ninety’s and have seen it all. I am associated with this mission believing that each of you receive what ever prefix you use based upon the teaching of Jesus, He attracted disciples from the reservoir of the common man. This is the mantle that you gain your beliefs from. My association is based on my humble conviction that all Christians are disciples. It is forged in the furn ices of life. There never was nor is there now any of you that is perfect. Jesus’s said let you that are nor guilty of sin cast the first stone. I am disappointed in the under lying disdain that exists below the surface that permeates some of these comments. From my place at the table I can state that this whole circus by my former political associates does not measure up to Christian dictates, nor does it not have problems with the the charges involved.

            I would council all to remove the rose colored glass that you view this situation and view this with fairness and objection.

            I love my country, my Constitution and especially my Bill Of Rights

          2. Iconoclast says:

            He does that a lot. There are no credible accusations here. Neither his, nor hers.

          3. John D. Partin says:

            Jim D, I’m not concerned about annoying you at all because, quite frankly, you annoy me as well and one good turn deserves another!!! As for your calling me a “dumbass” and “idiot”, I couldn’t care less about your dumbass and idiotic opinions about me because anyone, such as you, who would believe a drunken, beer-loving and swilling, belligerent, mean-tempered (as he showed at the hearings!), “entitled” feeling, lying, and arrogant RAPIST!!!! over a sincere and honest woman, such as Dr. Ford, is the KING OF ALL IDIOTS AND DUMBASSES!!!! No reasonable or logical or discerning person would do that and so that excludes you from the ranks of reasonable people in this world and makes your calling me any names the whole pot factory calling a single kettle “black”!!! You are showing Kavanaugh’s same feeling of “entitlement” by your “thinking” that you can tell me not to talk to you or anyone else in this blog, as though you own it!!!! I will tell you, as I have told other people here, if you can’t stand the heat or a response to your post, stay out of the kitchen and the blog because you just don’t get to tell me anything here and I’m going to respond to you or anyone else here that I wish and YOU CAN GO STUFF YOURSELF!!!! You have made up your mind on this matter, no matter what you say, because you can even compare his testimony to her testimony and still come out taking his side against her, which, again, no reasonable person would do!!! She swore under oath in the hearings that she was “100% certain that it was Kavanaugh who sexually assaulted her”, knowing full well that she would be convicted of perjury and go to prison if she was caught in a lie. She has absolutely nothing to gain from lying about him and everything to lose by doing so. Kavanaugh, on the other hand, has everything to gain by lying in this matter (the Supreme Court Judgeship!) and nothing to lose by it, since he will just go back to his DC Circuit Court bench, inasmuch as his Republican friends in the Senate won’t send him to prison for perjury when they won’t even come out against him on this allegation. So, again, you are taking the side of someone with nothing to lose by lying and everything to gain by it over the side of someone with everything to lose by lying and nothing to gain by it, which shows how really STUPID!!! and GULLIBLE!!!! you are!!!! I can trade insults with you all day long, if that is what you want, because nobody is better at it or loves it more than I do, or we can have a reasonable and respectful conversation. Whichever of those two sounds best to you is what we can go with!!!! It makes more “sense” to you that Dr. Ford is “mistaken” about identifying Kavanaugh as her attacker than it does that Kavanaugh is mistaken in his memory of this incident—-even though drunks commonly don’t remember things that they have done, after passing out or blacking out. That is how truly UNREASONABLE!!!! and UNDISCERNING!!!! you are because no sensible person would believe a drunk who forgets things that he has done routinely over someone who swore under oath that he did it and has no reason to lie and every reason not to lie!!!! It doesn’t matter at all that 100 people who have known him throughout his life vouch for his character and cannot give any credence to Dr. Ford’s allegations because every serial rapist and killer who has ever lived, before their crimes were discovered, had people vouching for them and saying “I never would have thought that he (or she) would ever have done anything like that because they always seemed so nice and pleasant to be around” and everybody has areas of their lives and things that they have done that other people (even close friends and family members) don’t know about, since we all need our privacy, sometimes. What can happen with serial rapists and killers can happen far easier and more often with someone who has only committed his crimes a few times—-that we know of. According to your “thinking”, Grigori Rasputin and even Adolf Hitler would have been saints because they weren’t even suspected of ever doing anything wrong by their friends and loved ones, either—-even when the wrongs that they did were right in front of these people and shown to them, since they just made excuses for it and “justified” it. This sort of thing has happened many times throughout history with many people. What can be done with something right in front of you can certainly be done far easier and more often, of course, with things that you don’t know anything about. Your misogyny is proven, despite your denials of it, by your characterization of Dr. Ford’s (and I quote) “meek and mild demeanor, her deer-in-the-headlights look, her vocal fry” and your dismissal of these other women’s allegations and your saying that we should not “be swayed by Kavanaugh’s anger, his belligerence, his tears”, the same as an alcoholic is proven to be an alcoholic, despite his protests that he “isn’t”, by his behavior and statements. No more than I would believe that an obvious alcoholic isn’t one just because he says that he isn’t would I believe that you aren’t a misogynist just because you say that you aren’t when your words and thinking are telling me the exact opposite!!! That would just be too gullible on my part. No more, either, do I believe that Kavanaugh didn’t commit these sexual assaults against Dr. Ford and these other women just because he, too, says that “he didn’t” (when drunks pass out and black out all of the time and forget what they have done) because that would also just be gullibility on my part, as it is on your part!!!! His not remembering doing those things and his not having done them are, quite obviously and realistically, two different things. It doesn’t matter, either, that five of the FBI investigations took place before the Donald became “President” (he stole the election, the same as George W. Bush did!!!), but only that they weren’t complete investigations, since if they had been, they would have uncovered Kavanaugh’s guilt in these matters. The proof is in the pudding! When they do quality investigation, I give them credit for doing so, but when they do slipshod “investigations”, I call them on that, too, and don’t care about their opinion of my appraisal of their “work”. If the FBI comes back this time with nothing again against Kavanaugh, that will be proof of more slipshod “work” in their “investigation” of this matter, as it was the six previous times. The proof will still be in the pudding!!! Your or their “thinking” that “Kavanaugh is innocent of these allegations” and his actually being innocent of them are, quite obviously and realistically, two different things. Now, if you don’t have anything intelligent (unlike what you usually post) to say in response to this post or more to say, you go away and annoy someone else!!! What works for you works for me, too!!!

          4. Jim D. says:

            John, there is an old saying that goes, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.”

            You talk too much.

            Amen.

      4. John D. Partin says:

        Jason Bender, thank you very much for your comment on my posting! I’m trying my very best here!

        1. James Jimbo Jones says:

          You are a politiminister and there is no place for that. Titus 3:9
          “But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.”

        2. John D. Partin says:

          Jim D, you “think” that everyone who disagrees with you here or anywhere is a “fool” and “talks too much” and that you and your ilk are the only “wise” people here and talk “the right amount of words”, and so, of course, you say that I’m a “fool” and “talk too much”, too. I just consider the source and the pot factory calling the kettle “black”!!! It takes a mountain of argument to fight against stupidity!! That is the reason for my long post.

          1. Jim D. says:

            The reason for your long posts is that you are a babbling fool that says the same thing over and over and offers nothing in the way of analytical and logical thinking.

            I won’t tell you to keep quiet. Please, keep right on babbling.

          2. John D. Partin says:

            Jim D, once again, a blithering idiot, such as yourself, calling me or anyone else a “babbling fool” is really just the biggest joke of all and the whole pot factory calling a single kettle “black”. Only obvious blithering idiots, such as you and Iconoclast and John Owens, could possibly believe that a drunk is more credible than his accuser who isn’t a drunk or that someone who has every reason to lie and no reason to tell the truth (Kavanaugh) is more believable than someone who has every reason to tell the truth and no reason to lie (Dr. Ford)!!! I won’t go through all of the other reasons again to doubt Kavanaugh’s testimony and believe Dr. Ford’s testimony because that would just be more pouring water over a rock and casting pearls before swine, since nothing ever gets through to a conservative, anyway, and sinks through all of the mud and rock up in your heads!!!! The main thing that conservatives conserve is thinking because you don’t do any of that at all!!!! No sensible person can possibly be a conservative because that is a contradiction in terms!!! Now, that Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court, the only thing left to do about it is to impeach him!!! It isn’t over yet.

        3. John Owens says:

          You massive twat! There is not one scintilla of EVIDENCE of anything that woman said involving Kavanaugh, and aside from college and high school antics, no evidence he is a drunk. I have intentionally left your neurotic ass alone for over a week and you are the prejudiced, ignorant one here who just goes on and on and on and on like a broken record. You are a brainwashed lefty and nothing you say comes from your own mind, but washes up out of the sewage that fills your cranium.

          1. John D. Partin says:

            JO, well, I’ll try yet again—even more calmly. Your not accepting the evidence presented by Dr. Ford and her evidence’s not actually being evidence are two entirely different things. As I’ve told you before, you don’t even accept basically logical and reasonable things as being true and so your not accepting her evidence as evidence and true is just par for the course with you. She swore under oath (with the penalty of perjury and prison time if she was caught lying hanging over her) that she was 100% certain that it was Kavanaugh who sexually assaulted her. That is evidence, even if you don’t accept it as evidence, the same as you don’t accept other basic logic and facts as true and reasonable. Why would this be any different—-with someone such as you!!! If you don’t accept her sworn testimony that Kavanaugh did it and have to blow out another smoke screen and evade the issue yet again with your temper tantrum here and phony “sympathy” for Dr. Ford by saying that “she probably was attacked, but just not by Kavanaugh”, then you have to, consistently (if you are ever consistent at all!!!), discount all other women’s accusations against their rapists and sexual assaulters with those same tactics and then no man would ever be convicted of rape or sexual assault and go to prison over it!!! I called you some rotten and obscene names, too, and said the most hateful things against you that I could come up with, but ULC didn’t post it here, which is probably for the best, since all of that is only a distraction from and evasion of the issue at hand—-and you need to learn that, too!!!!—-and nobody here wants to read any of that garbage from you and I or any other people here, except those who get off on that kind of thing and whom neither you nor I should want to entertain and give them what they want and a show for their benefit!!! My posts here aren’t dependent on your postings to me, so that I would have to wait for that to happen in order to post here. My posts have nothing to do with you and I will go right on posting here even if you never post to me again, which I would greatly prefer. Nobody was even talking to you. I was talking to Jim D, not you!!!! I will post to whomever I want in here and talk about you or whomever I want in here, whether you like it or not, and you have just nothing to say about it and it is none of your business!!! So, don’t get your panties in a bunch over it, take a chill pill, and pinch your bag and get glad!!! You are the brainwashed one here, when you can just follow conservative and Republican party lines, propaganda, and indoctrination, by comparing Kavanaugh’s and Dr. Ford’s testimony and still come out on Kavanaugh’s side. Dr. Ford has 40 other witnesses that she wanted the FBI to investigate to corroborate her story, but they only bothered with 9 of them—-and even them only half-assedly!!! Questioning (half-assedly) 9 out of 40 people might seem like a “full investigation” to you (because that is what you already want to believe and won’t listen to anything else and it isn’t difficult at all to convince you of something that you already want to believe), but that isn’t, quite obviously, a full investigation to anyone else who actually thinks about it. The FBI only conducted a token and show “investigation” this last time because the President wanted Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court and was directing their “investigation” and he wasn’t going to let anything stop Kavanaugh from getting on the Supreme Court—-as is quite obvious to everyone, except you and other indoctrinated, brainwashed, and blindered Trumpophiles!!! Dr. Ford had every reason to tell the truth and no reason to lie, whereas Kavanaugh had every reason to lie and no reason to tell the truth. Yet, despite that obvious difference in motivation in their testimonies, you and your ilk still side with Kavanaugh over Dr. Ford. That is how unthinking you and other Trumpophiles are about this matter!!! I keep repeating myself over and over and over again to you and other conservatives here “like a broken record”, as you say, in the hope of getting through finally to, at least, some of you, the same as Jesus constantly railed against the Pharisees, trying to get through to some of them. I’m not usually successful at getting through to any of you because you are too brainwashed and indoctrinated by conservatism (a mental illness and defect!!!) to permit that happen, but, at least, I get through to some other people here and find others who agree with me, and that is enough!!!

          2. John Owens says:

            Sorry, John. Hate to burst your bubble, but you are not “getting through” to anyone here. A few, who actually share your psychoses (plural), will encourage you from time to time, but nobody is going to read all your hysterical babbling. It’s like an English translation of the Koran. Boring, repetitious, and mostly false. Your attempts at reasoning are sad. I pity you.

      5. John D. Partin says:

        Iconoclast, I “filibuster”, as you put it, “on nearly every comment” that I make because it takes a mountain or whole mountain range of argument to fight against a mountain or mountain range of STUPIDITY!!!! You can’t do that with just a few sentences, but I do pack “more logic and intellectual firepower into just a few sentences than you can muster” or anyone else here musters in your statements (thank you again, Jason Bender!!!) and am “dropping a TRUTH MOAB on all Y’all Trumpster Turdettes” ( that is DELIGHTFUL!!! and FANTASTIC!!!! and thanks again!!). I hope that that wasn’t too much for you to take in or understand!!!

        1. Iconoclast says:

          Dream on, Sphincter.

        2. John D. Partin says:

          JO, as usual, you didn’t understand what I wrote to you because I already told you that you are too brainwashed and indoctrinated by conservatism for anything to ever get through to someone such as you!!! According to you, anyone who doesn’t agree with you is “psychotic” and any arguments other than your own or those who agree with you are “hysterical babbling” and their reasoning is “sad”, but since you don’t even know the truth about yourself and your own “thinking”, obviously, you couldn’t know the truth about my or anyone’s thinking, either. Well, that is obvious to everyone to whom it can be obvious, anyway, and if it isn’t obvious to you, there is a very obvious reason for that. You’re just too bone stupid, brainwashed, pig-headed, and indoctrinated in conservatism to get it!!!! Everyone else who doesn’t have all of your mental and spiritual limitations and afflictions understands me immediately and doesn’t consider my posts here “hysterical babbling” and so the only reason for your doing so has to be those mental and spiritual limitations, defects, and afflictions of yours, which are seen by everyone here, except yourself and those who are similarly afflicted, defective, and limited as yourself!!!! Even schizophrenics “think” that everyone else is wrong-headed and that they are the “sane” and “right-thinking” people, and you feel the same way about yourself as they feel about themselves. Well, why wouldn’t you, since like minds think alike and birds of a feather flock together?!!! You just said that “a few who share your psychoses will encourage you from time to time”, which proves that you “think” the same way as schizophrenics do and “think” that other people are “sick” and you are the “sane” one. Schizophrenics pity other people, too, the same as you do me and other people, no doubt, which is more proof of your similar condition to theirs, and their pity of other people is as delusional, pathetic, ridiculous, and self-deceived as yours is!!!! Quite obviously, you couldn’t be a realistic judge of any statement’s being true or false when you don’t even know the actual truth about yourself—-well, again, it would be obvious to anyone, other than yourself, who could actually perceive the obvious!!! It is a given, of course, that nothing will ever get through to you and all of the indoctrination, brainwashing, mud, and rocks there between your ears and that all attempts to do so will be “understood” by you as “boring, repetitious, and mostly false”, but, again, your “thinking” them to be such and their actually being so are two entirely different things. So, I will leave you to your safe little cocoon of close-mindedness, bigotry, and self-righteousness, as I have done many other similarly afflicted and limited persons here, in order that you may go on in your fantasies and delusions that you are “right” and everyone else who disagrees with you is “wrong”—to your heart’s content, and not waste any more of my time on you or cast any more pearls before swine such as you and concentrate, instead, on people who can still think correctly and non-delusionally. Have a nice dream!!!!

          1. John Owens says:

            I don’t think EVERYONE who disagrees with me is wrong, John. Just most of them, which includes you. You are the close-minded one, accusing me of being that way. Your own bigotry and prejudice are monumental. I’ve never been associated with any people as bigoted as you are, except for a few Muslims who hate Jews. Your fanatical zeal would be admirable if you had any nobility about you.

          2. jason says:

            I do not associate with anti-semites! neither should you!

          3. John Owens says:

            Jason, I had college classes with them. I didn’t have spend-the-night parties with them. Also, as an adult, I choose with whom I will associate and to what extent.

  10. Alan Meunier says:

    “Satan”- the go to when you don’t expect someone else to take responsibility nor take responsibility for your own actions. Satan, as this guy describes, does not exist; “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”- Isaiah 45:7

    1. Rev Robin says:

      WOW! I have never, since 1980 seen a Scripture taken as far out of its context as you just did!
      I really don’t understand why no one has even mentioned this.
      I’ll leave you to your studies.
      WOW!

      1. BethKCZ says:

        Please explain the context under which God would say that He creates evil.

        Furthermore, Satan in the OT was an adversary to God. Not the ultimate evil.

        If I were an omniscient omnipotent God, saw either women being drugged and raped, OR saw “good men” accused of such, I would stop it. Can God stop it? Doesn’t He want to?

        1. Carl Elfstrom says:

          It seems impossible to me that anything can exist that is totally evil, which would make it totally void of love,and would be totally the opposite of constructive, by which it would be totally destructive, even unto itself, therefore it would destroy itself and cease to exist without ever having existed, for nothing totally in a constant state of destruction create or construct, or be created. It eliminates itself.

          1. Jason Bender says:

            “It seems impossible to me that anything can exist that is totally evil”
            well, you, sir, have obviously never met my ex-wife.

        2. Carl Elfstrom says:

          Everything must become and will be balanced, in fulfilling its existence through karma. Whatever seems good or bad is simply balancing itself. There is nothing supernatural. Everything is contained within nature, and is subject to natural laws. Nothing can possibly escape the laws of nature, but the laws can be transmuted.

          1. Carl Elfstrom says:

            For further explanation study the Kybalion by Three Initiates, which can be purchased from Amazon.

          2. Lionheart says:

            Yes and also study Harry Potter, and also the Three Little Pigs. Fascinating stories all composed by human beings. You will find they contain no logic to this posting, just like the Kybalion, and other such books of rubbish.

          3. Bud Kruger says:

            Listen my friends. God is Truth. You espouse all the vitriolic diatribe you want. In the end it comes back to truth. Our lord created the garden of Eden and we in our little egocentric cocoons are screwing it up. Our country is founded on the principle that you
            are innocent until proven guilty. We must stay true to that foundation or vigilante justice will rule once again.

          4. Lionheart says:

            Bud, how on earth can you say a mythical god is truth, and then follow that up with the garden of eden myth, and THEN say “in the end it comes back to truth”. There is NO truth, or evidence, any god exists, and there is NO truth in the mythical story of the garden of eden. We all know the age of the earth, with evidence, that the earth isn’t 6000 years old, which it would have to be if you falsely believed in the Garden of Eden.

    2. John D. Partin says:

      JO, once again, as conservatives and homophobes ALWAYS!!!! do, you try to turn everything around and say that I and other people are the “bigoted” and “prejudicial” and “closed-minded” ones, while saying that you are the “reasonable” and, I suppose, “open-minded” one. That is a well-known and long practiced tactic of right-wingers, conservatives, and homophobes, such as yourself. The Pharisees even tried to turn everything around on Jesus and accuse him of “casting out devils by the prince of devils” and “being possessed by devils himself”, and if that can be done even to Jesus, there isn’t anyone that you right-wingers today can’t do that to, as well. What an incredible inversion of reality!!!! You are the one who is against gay marriage and gay rights, generally, and yet, according to you, I’m the “bigot” and “close-minded” person here and you are the “open-minded” person here!!! You are the one who takes the side of an accused sexual assaulter over his accuser, the same as male chauvinists and paternalistic men have always done, but, according to you, you aren’t one of those guys (no matter how much the evidence of your words here says that you are!!!!!) and you are the “fair-minded” and “reasonable” one here, while anyone who stands up for women, generally, against their sexual assaulters and for Dr. Ford, specifically, “must be a bigot and closed-minded” person”!!! And on and on and on, with every other case of the person who is for acceptance of and rights for other people’s “being a bigot and closed-minded” person, while those, such as yourself, who are against acceptance of gay and some other people and against their having full equal rights are “really the open-minded and fair-minded and reasonable” people!!!! Only by standing reality on its head and turning everything completely upside down can you and other conservative and homophobic people stay in business and maintain your fantasy about yourselves that you are the “righteous” and “reasonable” ones, while those who insist on reality’s staying right side up and “bigotry”‘s not just meaning whatever you want it to mean, to suit and “justify” yourself, and still only being rightfully applied to people who are against acceptance of and full equal rights for all people are the “unreasonable, bigoted, prejudicial, and closed-minded” people. Your ilk was doing this same thing during the Pharisees’ time (when they went right on “thinking” that they were the “righteous ones”, despite Jesus’ telling them that they weren’t!!!) and you are still doing it today!!!! No matter what you “think”, though, bigotry and prejudice don’t mean just whatever in the Hell that you want them to mean, to be applied against whomever in the Hell that you want to apply them, but still ONLY!!!! fit those who are against acceptance of and full equal rights for all people, such as yourself, since, otherwise, we would have to say that the Nazis were “really the open-minded and accepting” people when they were committing genocide against six million Jews and all of their other “inferiors” that they killed and Ku Klux Klansmen were “really the open-minded and accepting” people when they were lynching black people and committing other crimes against them and supporting denial of full equal rights for black people, while all of those who fought against the Nazis and against Klansmen and racial bigotry must “actually have been bigots and racists themselves”!!!! Even the Communists, according to your inversion of reality, would be called the “reasonable and open-minded and accepting” people while they were oppressing their people and denying them their human rights!!! And so on for every other group that has opposed acceptance of and full equal rights for some other group’s being called, according to you, “open-minded” and “reasonable” and “accepting”, while those who fought them would be called “bigots” and “prejudicial and closed-minded” people!!! You might want to live in such an inverted and ass-backwards world because it makes you and everyone who agrees with you “right” and “reasonable” and “fair-minded”, but I would far prefer to live in a right side up and truly reasonable world (to the extent that we can achieve that, in this world) of acceptance of and full equal rights for all people (not just for your or this or that or another group). No doubt, all of this that I have just wrote to you here will go through that blender and filter and distorter in your head and come out, once again, meaning something other than what I have actually said here and being misunderstood, once again, by you and you will “justify” yourself, once again, against this straw man of what you “think” that I’m saying here—-because it just wouldn’t be convenient for or conducive to your continuing in conservatism or homophobia for you to actually understand what I’m saying to you here, and you will just come back with more smoke screens, evasions, deflections, changing of the subject, and all of your other usual tactics, as you always do. I told you many posts ago that you should try to argue a hard-core neo-Nazi or Klansman out of their bigotry against Jews or black people, so that you could get a taste of what you give to the rest of us here about gay people and acceptance of them and equal rights for them and about believing Dr. Ford and other women against their accusers, and see if you thought that this neo-Nazi or Klansman was any more “reasonable” or “open-minded” than we think that you are—-and get a taste of your own medicine and attitude toward people. You will, of course, never try that experiment with a neo-Nazi or Klansman and try to open their mind and make them more accepting of Jews or black people because it would hit too close to home for you and, possibly, open your mind as well (and you won’t ever risk that!!) and, besides, you can’t give to neo-Nazis or Klansmen something that you don’t even have yourself: open-mindedness!!! You say that you “don’t think that EVERYONE who disagrees with you is wrong, just most of them”, but, no doubt, that is only a very general statement, and in actual practice and specifically, in every case of someone’s daring to disagree with you, “they are, of course, always wrong”, according to you. I’ve read your posts here to many other people, not just to me, and I have yet to find any case of someone’s here disagreeing with you where, according to you, they weren’t the “wrong” one and you, of course, the “right” one. That doesn’t sound as though you really only have a problem with me or “think” that I’m “more bigoted than anyone else”!!! I’m done, again, trying to reason with you, since I know that it has, yet again, been an exercise in futility and you are just not capable of understanding or accepting anything that I’m saying to you here, because of your actual CLOSED-MINDENESS!!!! and INDOCTRINATION!!!! against it, and so if you choose not to respond to this post, that would be just fine with me, and I won’t have to waste any more of my time pouring water over the rock of your head, trying to get it to seep into it, or casting any more pearls before swine, lest you turn again and rend me with your words (or try to!) and you can go on in your safe little cocoon of self-righteousness, closed-mindedness, and bigotry, until your dying day, and not have to be bothered ever by any light or doubts of your position getting through to you, as I told you before!!!!

      1. John Owens says:

        JP, once again, as heterophobes and Christophobes always do, you rant and rant and pontificate and virtue signal, like the absolute WORST hypocrite on the planet, calling names and hurling accusations in a judgmental fashion, as though you are somehow superior as you rant and rave in a manor worthy of an angry klansman, much more self-righteous than I. If you could ever possibly read your own lunatic ravings and compare them to my responses to you, you would see that I have been more than patient, more than kind, and not been ANYWHERE near as judgmental or self-righteous as YOU. You are the one in darkness, Sir. Please examine your own attitudes while lambasting mine.

        1. John D. Partin says:

          JO, instead of directly replying to my questions and statements here, all that you do is parrot back at me paraphrases of what I have said to you and scream and babble and froth at the mouth incoherently yet again, as you always do, as an evasion and smoke screen to keep from answering and dealing directly with the points that I raised in my post to you!!! That isn’t your behaving like a reasonable person here, but only like a spoiled brat and very immature so-called “adult” who when he doesn’t get his way or get people to agree with him throws a temper tantrum, as you are doing!!!!! You are proving me 100% correct about you with this fit that you are throwing here and that you are just a dishonest, self-righteous, and closed-minded bigot who can’t think of anything else to say here in your defense!!!! Why is it “bigotry”, according to you, to be in favor of gay and other people’s having equal rights with the rest of the people in society, but, again according to you, “it isn’t bigotry” to be against their having those equal rights when common sense, logic, and reason tell us that those who are against other people’s having equal rights are the real bigots and those who are in favor of other people’s having equal rights are the fair-minded and fair-dealing people? Whenever your beliefs are questioned or challenged by anyone here (and I have read your posts to many other people in this blog), you always resort to these same screaming and belligerent and insulting and accusatory tactics that you have resorted to here with me because they shake up your little world and threaten your sense of identity, as I have done, and that is the only kind of “response” that you know how to give (though you pretend to yourself and other people that you are a “reasonable” and “intelligent” person), since you really have nothing truly reasonable or intelligent to say to them to defend yourself!!!! Why haven’t you tried to argue a hardcore neo-Nazi or Klansman out of their bigotry against Jews or black people, as I suggested to you, and let him give you a taste of what you give to other people here and a taste of your own medicine and attitude toward people when they talk to you about gay rights or believing Dr. Ford and women, generally, when they accuse men of sexual assault or rape and see if you think that they are any more “reasonable” and “open-minded” than we know that you are—except that you are far too COWARDLY!!! to ever try doing that and don’t want to risk opening your own mind, too?!!! Give me a direct and reasonable answer to these questions and stop hiding behind evasions, smoke screens, screaming, frothing at the mouth, parroting back at me what I have said to you, deflections, changing of the subject, and all of your other usual tactics or just don’t bother posting back to me at all, since there is no point to your posting more of your shit in this post of yours to me here, which answers NOTHING!!!! What is the point of my having any further conversation with someone like you when all that you ever do is resort to these evasive, smoke screening, and deflective tactics, and I can never get a straight answer from you about anything?!!! There really is no point to it at all and, as I told you before, I’m not wasting any more of my time on someone like you and pouring any more water over the solid rock of your head to try to have some of it seep into it or casting any more pearls before swine such as you!!! If what you have written to me in this post here is really all that you have to say and the only kind of “response” that you have to give to me or anyone else when they challenge your beliefs (and that is all that you have ever had to say!!!), then just keep all of that to yourself or go bother somebody else with all of that because I’m just not interested in any of that at all and won’t respond to any more of that garbage if that is what you post back to me again and will stick with people here who actually respond to statements and questions and don’t blow out smoke screens, evasions, deflections, and the rest of your tactics!!! Don’t waste your time or mine because I won’t respond to any more of this!!! That’s all!!!!

          1. John Owens says:

            I’m GLAD you won’t respond anymore, but I think now you will seem more rational, since you will not be ranting and accusing and hurling bigoted, ignorant remarks in these terribly long sentences and paragraphs. Now you will appear to at least be intelligent enough to be more introspective and see that you are wrong, wrong, wrong about everything, everything, everything.

      2. John Owens says:

        See? You accuse and accuse and accuse and accuse. You label, and talk about things concerning which you have NO CLUE. You are the prejudiced one. YOU are the bigot. YOU are the hater. YOU are the ignorant one. Try to read your own rants. Just try. I will try to pray for you to understand yourself a little bit.

  11. Waya5 says:

    Bryan is a nut. Anything that contradicts his particular narrow view of Christianity is automatically Satan. The battle, if any, is for this nation of Freedom to become a theocracy, with any other religious views other than Christianity rejected and outlawed. This is what these idiots want. After they get their way, they will then fight over which Christian Denomination is “the” official religion. This is not what our Founding Fathers, who were mostly deist, would have wanted. My people were not permitted to practice our traditional Native American faith– which has nothing to do with either animal/human sacrifice or peyote– until the 1979 law that gave us our Freedom was passed. I am not willing to surrender my God to these lunatics. No way.

  12. Lea Weisenbach says:

    Its not Satan…I’m tired of people blaming the invisible man for everything and not taking responsibility for their own actions.

    I was raised Catholic and I’m a survivor from Christianity..I’ve witness a lot of garbage from the church from men and women. There are a lot of good people but those good people don’t want to beleive that their belief system can be wrong..

    Our country’s law is not guilty till proven guilty..He was young and maybe stupid just like all of us..And so was she..I’m just tired of this witch hunt on both sides of the fence…I’ve been a victum in the past..But I would not do this after so many years to my family or his.

    1. BethKCZ says:

      This is a job interview, not a trial. He won’t be declared “guilty”, but rather does he have the background showing he would make a good Supreme Court Justice. However, if there is an open-ended FBI investigation – not the farce of them being told who they can interview about what topics, it could lead to charges, a trial, and the possibility of prison if declared guilty.

      You and I could not dictate to the police who they could interview or what they could ask if we were accused of a crime. If the police found evidence for another crime during that investigation, they would prosecute those. Why should Kavanaugh be different?

      If these accusations are viewed as possibly credible, PLUS Kavanaugh’s demeanor in the hearing, the worst that can happen as a result is that he stays a judge on the court of appeals.

    2. John D. Partin says:

      JO, not to get into a whole other harangue with you, which I’m not interested in doing AT ALL!!!!!, but “one credible accusation” or “any evidence”, according to you, and a credible accusation and evidence in the view of non-biased and non-conservative and non-Republican yes men (that is, fair and open minded people) are, quite obviously, two different things. Anyone who would take this angry, belligerent, and beer-drinking Kavanaugh’s word, even though he could very well have passed out in a drunken stupor and not remembered what he did to Dr. Ford (as commonly happens with drunks!) over the sincere, tearful, and open testimony of Dr. Ford could ONLY!!!! be doing so because of conservative and misogynistic bias against her and the Democrats. She was credible and Kavanaugh wasn’t! That is all that there is to it, in the eyes of honest and open-minded people, and she doesn’t have a political bone in her body, unlike Kavanaugh, who is, quite obviously, partisan and biased against the Democrats, as his “left-wing conspiracy” rant proves!!! Read my post to Jim D for more about this.

      1. Iconoclast says:

        For any accusation to be credible, it must come from a credible accuser and/or have corroborating witnesses or evidence. Like I said, no credible accusation AT ALL.

        1. John D. Partin says:

          Iconoclast, have you been watching the news on TV? Dr. Ford has 40 witnesses, besides herself, that the FBI haven’t even bothered questioning in their fast-food so-called “investigation” this week, not to mention all of the other witnesses who have called the FBI repeatedly and not been replied to. These people are doing their part and want to testify, but the FBI isn’t doing its part by talking with these people. Quite obviously, witnesses, testimony, and evidence that the FBI refuses to look into or follow up on, in their very circumscribed, token, and show “investigation” (just so the Donald can say “See, I looked into it! What more do you want? Let’s have the vote now!!!”) aren’t the same thing AT ALL!!! as “no credible accusation or corroborating evidence or credible accuser”!!!

          1. Iconoclast says:

            Ford has not ONE person to back her up. I don’t know if you get your info from NPR, or CNN or the View, but you are living in a fart-bubble if you believe what you are saying.

  16. Jim D says:

    “She was credible and Kavanaugh wasn’t!” No basis in fact. It’s simply your opinion. That, and a buck and a half, will get you a cup of coffee at Dunkin’.

  17. dave says:

    Think of it this way: Had Brett been a liberal leaning judge these allegations would have become real almost instantly. MIRACLE!!

    IF anyone is behind the demons it is the guys trying to get the judge into the bench. People who refuse to listen to the vulnerable are risking Gods wrath not satans.

  21. themarketminstrels says:

    Ford loved being the center of the stage and acting out her poor little me victim role while actually committing the only assault we have witnessed between these people – the public rape of Kavanaugh by the hateful people of the Left, none of whom on that committee could have likely survived a microscopic exam of their past anymore than the proven sexual predator bill clinton did. But they liked him. He probably only raped women of the right.

  22. oldbill says:

    Both sides of the issue cannot be telling the truth.

  23. Eric says:

    Like separating children from their mothers is Godly, like having adulterous affairs and cheating and lying are family values. This isnt Satan its men who are greedy for power….They are against abortion yet put children in cages. Love one another does not mean anything to our present Leader.

  24. Donald Schmidt says:

    With all that’s gone on in the Trump administration, this is certainly not, as hyperbolic Bryan Fischer stated, “the biggest conflict between good and evil that we have seen in the last year.” radio host Bryan Fischer got the roles mixed up, e.g., While he may be correct in that “This is big league spiritual warfare,” he certainly has the roles mixed up. Factually and morally, this statement should read, “This is major league spiritual warfare. This is Satan and the demons of hell coming against one WOMAN because SHE stands for what is right and stands for what is true. And all the forces of hell (and the Republican majority) are arranged against HER and we, ladies and gentlemen, have to stand in the gap for CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD.”

    Now, is that a “he said, she said” argument? Well, without the corroborating statements from other accusers and the fact that only Kavanaugh, not Ford, stands to gain anything their testimonies, it would be. However, the truth weighs on the side of Ford who credibly recounted the incident whereas Kavanaugh obviously relied on one-person denials and emotional outbursts to try to make his case. The subsequent FBI investigation is now showing that he lied to Congress during his testimony, as well. This propensity to lie and his heavily weighted partisan comments combined with his displayed emotional instability during testimony, is not indicative of the kind of level-headed, unbiased Justice we want sitting on the highest court of the land.

  25. Bro. Chas says:

    Who are the ghost writers of these articles for ULC? Obviously the writer(s) have no interest in true journalism, where the facts are laid out on all sides of a story, which allows the reader to intelligently weigh all the accurate information and then draw logical conclusion and draft a rational comment response. Every article that I have read from this forum is written from a very obviously biased position that lacks all the facts and blatantly does not address any truths that are counter to the writer’s views and personal beliefs. This one is no exception.

    I thought I was getting ordained through an organization with integrity and character, but I’m seeing now how far from the truth that really is. Besides the writers, I am disappointed with what seems to be a majority of my fellow “ministers” who respond to these articles with hate, anger, bias and ignorant remarks. I do applaud the few “ministers” who regularly are capable of putting together a mature and rational comment based on truth and facts, which actually promotes thought and discussion. I’m embarrassed to tell people that I’m ordained through ULC. This is not what I was looking for when I became a member. Very sad and disheartened!

    1. Don Linville says:

      I agree, some of these responses are disturbing. However, the world is full of diversity. I suppose it’s not too unusual for us to see this divisiveness here too.

  26. Bob says:

    It’s time we place a higher priority on integrity for our elected officials and Supreme Court nominees. I don’t really have a problem with Kavanaugh’s drinking antics during his high school or college years – a person can mature out of that. However, his recent testimony under oath revealed a person, from my perspective, with little integrity or moral compass. He was at best very disingenuous in describing the reports of his vomiting as being due to a weak stomach for Mexican food, “boofing” as meaning flatulence, that he fell asleep from drinking but didn’t pass out, that the Devil’s Triangle was a drinking game, etc. If reports of his text messages to classmates at Yale Law are true, he clearly lied about not knowing about the allegations of his exposing himself until he read it in the New Yorker. He does not have the character that I expect of a Supreme Court Justice (and this is not even considering the sexual assault allegations). We have become a society in which the end justifies the means. Tell the truth and let the chips fall where they may.

    1. Pastor Ron says:

      Exactly. The issue here is not whether this character is guilty of sexual assault when he was younger, but whether or not he’s guilty of moral turpitude in general, which I believe he is. I believe the evidence in the accusations, the supporting testimonies, as well as his own deceptive rejoinders, all expose a person who does not represent the high standards that the people expect of *any* judge, let alone a Supreme Court Justice.

  27. cbcuff says:

    I’m wondering if Fischer had a broader spiritual view, might not a more appropriate position be to ask his ‘followers’, “Are we to interfere with Judge Kavanaugh’s ethical conflicts, or let Karma decide his fate?”

  28. Donald Schmidt says:

    If Satan IS the father of lies, Trump must be Satan or at the very least Satan’s minion (see https://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/statements/byruling/false/ ).

    Interesting facts: Trump’s personal address at his “tower” in New York is, in fact, 666 Fifth Avenue. The Dow’s biggest drop since the Great Depression (under Trump’s tenure) was 666 points.

    Trump drops “God’s” name and invokes Christianity while disparaging other religions when it suits him to pander to his base. In essence, he is a false Christian. In spite of his words, his behavior is not Christian and that should be obvious to those who truly know Christian teachings.

    Aside from his own behavior, he deceives otherwise devote Christians into embracing a counterfeit Christianity and, through his example, gives them a license to act in opposition to the teachings of Christ. Trump is a “great deceiver,” a sower of discord who shields himself in a cloak of Christianity while doing Satan’s work.

    Biblical teachings have warned us of one whose behavior defines the spirit of antichrist. As prophesized in 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul who describes the antichrist as a “man of sin, a liar and deceiver whose natural abilities Satan enhances by supernatural power in order to confuse people in the end time.”

    Trump’s behavior of constant lies, degradation of people (including victims), pitting Americans and global citizens against each other, his deviant sexual behavior, his quest for worldly things, and his lack of empathy for those who suffer is the perfect example of Paul’s description of the spirit of the antichrist.

    The greatest trick of Satan is to make you believe he doesn’t exist. It is disheartening that so many of Trump’s supporters are blind to his true nature and are therefore, as described in Mark 4:12,”ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven.” May God help them all if it is in His plan to do so.

  29. hYMDxzd2LH says:

    “Trump is clearly not a religious man, unless you believe being compulsively devilish is a form of religiosity. He is mean and surly. He is a bully. He is a pathological liar. He cheats. He is an adulterer. He is twice-divorced with children by three different women. He bragged, on tape, about assaulting women. He says he doesn’t think he has ever asked God for forgiveness. Trump was a walking, talking rebuke of everything the Christian right had ever told me that it stood for.” – Charles Blow, NYTimes.

    Sounds like Satan to me. If he isn’t the father of lies, he’s his brother.

  30. Herb Kleinfeld says:

    I’m getting tired of these lies and questionable accusations bogging down our government. We need a statute of limitations for this sort of thing.

    We’ve heard too much of “You’re not a woman. You wouldn’t understand.” I understand just fine. Justice delayed is justice denied for EVERYONE involved.

    If you believe you were violated, report it ASAP! That’s what the police and the courts are for. If you choose to remain silent then, REMAIN silent! Something that happened in the past doesn’t magically become criminal because you suddenly become angry at someone.

    If I used the mascot to describe a girl it could be that she was the one who worn a custom and made people cheer at the football game or she was the locker room shower treat.

    I first came to ULC with much respect for the philosophy. I believed I would be in the company of the truly spiritual; ones that followed their faith in something greater that themselves; those far from the madding crowds. Regretfully I am mistaken. With that I feel my faith shaken. I feel as I have strayed from the path. I feel called to somewhere else.

    May that which you hold most holy bless you, and embrace you in its grace, now and forever.

  33. Robert Bruce Kelsey says:

    How ironic that the Protestant church should now have become as repressive and corrupt as the Catholic church from which its founders broke. As the saying goes, those who would fight with monsters had best beware becoming monsters themselves. How pathetic that the ULC boards should erupt in vitriolic character assassination of its own members. How sad that for a religion founded (in one of its traditions at least) on the notion of substitutionary sacrifice, so many of its members appear to think that hating and debasing others is a virtue. If indeed Jesus died for your sins, maybe it’s time for you to stop wasting His efforts.

  34. Minister Barbara says:

    Honestly this is just the typical “Lets keep everybody fight and against one another”
    There are so many great post on this thread. This is just another example keeping people separated or fighting so that we cannot join as one. Be it faith, race religion and any label. I for one am glad that the fake news has been called out FINALLY. People are waking up FINALLY.
    One of my best friends reports I love Hillary and am a staunch Liberal FINALLY. I love her dearly and always will but would not ever announce anything like that. Why have thinsg gotten so out of control that everything has to be separate. ‘
    That to me is the tru evilness.Satan is feeding off of all of this. Once people truly wake up FINALLY they will see that it is like the Wizard of Oz, a big smoke and mirror screen. The Fake media is in the sidelines raisning and closing the curtain each time.
    Sheeple, do your homework. and no it is not found on CNN and Fox.
    History repeats itself and sadly grwoing pains are a part of the process.

  35. carrie says:

    First, let me say that I don’t believe in “Satan”, that seems to be a Christian problem so I won’t go into any of that. Please don’t insult me because I don’t believe as you do, my Faith is my own and I won’t go into that either.
    Brett Kavanaugh has not been charged with any crimes, thus far, and I have no idea if he ever will be. He is not being investigated for crimes, except lying on his job application. If he lied, and there is ample proof of that, he shouldn’t be hired for the job. If anyone lies on their job application, that is grounds for immediate dismissal. There are plenty of other, much more qualified applicants out there.
    Yelling at one another here, and calling each other names is NOT what this was designed for. Spirited debate is one thing. Spitting hate is another. I am quite sure that each of us has our own viewpoint and each one has deep meaning to us. All of us, no matter the faith, are devout to what we feel is right and proper.
    We should never, in this forum, become degrading and mean spirited. If all of us believe in a Universal Love, we should strive to see it shine, even in a war of words. I can play scrabble without calling my opponent names.
    The media is the media…..some may seem more reasonable than others but, listen to all sides. My father always told me a few things that I use every day. 1. If you want to know the truth, look at it from all sides. Each side tells the truth as they see it, the real truth is somewhere in the middle. 2. Those who refuse to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Study the past, see what worked and what didn’t, then go in the proper direction. 3. I may not like what you have to say but I will fight to the death for your right to say it. He was a combat veteran of 2 wars and still had faith in this country. Let us do the same, with faith in ourselves and our country.

      1. Jason says:

        Kavanaugh was smart enough to say a bunch of things trump wants to hear, like trump can fire whomever he pleases without consequence, thats why trump likes him.

  36. carrie says:

    And so it begins….I have never said one word about your “faith”, and yet you question mine. I never said anything political and yet you find a way to twist it into something gross. You can not, and never will convince me that the demon inside you has anything to do with me. No one died for my sins, they are all my own. I sit in final judgement of me, no one else can ever claim that right.
    There is ample proof he lied. One small example, the drinking age when he was 18 was 21 in that state. If that is not a lie then what is it? So what if he has a high I.Q.? He proved himself to be a pompous ass by yelling at, and insulting those who were interviewing him, (If he was looking for any job, that would disqualify him) and he refuses to apologize. I never said anything about whether I thought her testimony was true or not, YOU are the one that makes the issue. I speak from fact, not fallacy. Pray for yourself, I have no need of you, your spiteful little god, or the devil within you.

  37. Mosea L Harris says:

    It is quite sad to see so many people who are not the least interested in any kind of justice and speak such ignorance and vile nonsense in the name of Jesus. Kavanaugh failed to show any mature compassion in his testimony in that farce of a hearing. He did not come across as being a fair minded judicious individual and by his own behavior shames our justice system with what will likely be his appointment. Integrity means something and as people of God I would hope it would mean much. A mature, fair minded, compassionate and honest response would have recognized the hurt of people who have been assaulted, admitted to youthful indiscretion but redirected to the person he claims to be today and his tenor would not have been as an entitled brat. His appointment is a shame and the republican leadership has no integrity!!!

      Rick: There’s the problem with religion, RIGHT THERE!!. Your comment is typical of religionists who try and PUSH guilt onto people and get them to do things they don’t want to do. Priests are experts in doing this with boys. They convince the boys they are full of sin and guilt and the only way to god is to do as the priest tells them. Shame on you Rick! Shame on you! You, and others like you, appall me! If there is a Hell, it’s people like you that’s heading right there. You have a first class ticket! Shame on YOU Rick!

      Amoral conservative and political christianity is about as false as they come. They have zero compassion for anyone and are in bed with possessed pastors and evangelists. If jesus acted like they are in his name, they would never get to Heaven.

    Leaving aside the issue of whether or not he did as these women claim there is a more important issue to consider. I work in the criminal defense field. I am a Criminal Defense Investigator. I have interviewed hundreds of suspects some of whom have been proven guilty and others who have not. I’ve had several clients convicted on no more “evidence” than their accusers accusations. I consider myself a fairly good judge of when a person is telling the truth and when they are, if not lying than being at least deceptive. The clients who are most adamant, vociferous and indignant about being accused of a crime that they swear they did not do are in my experience the most likely to have committed the offense. A truly innocent person is resolute, determined and level headed enough to know that emotional outbursts are not what sways a jury. If there is truly no evidence they welcome any and all investigations and want no stone unturned. Mr. Kavanaugh exhibited all the hall marks of a person terrified that the truth will out. His demeanor and attitude before this committee was deplorable and unbecoming a jurist of the highest order. This and this alone should disqualify him for the position.

    I just LOVE the way those who vote Democrat believe, imagine, fantasize all sorts of evil regarding those who do not vote Democrat, but excuse, overlook, minimize all the proven foibles, sins, vices, and crimes of those who label themselves Democrats. Totally childish hypocrisy.

    1. Donald Schmidt says:

      Um…those attributes more correctly apply to the president speaking and Tweeting daily as THE representative of the Republican Party. Both Reps and Dems have gotten so hypocritical in their rhetoric, as well as mean and nasty, that this is no longer the America of relatively civil discourse that I grew up in and no longer the country politicians put the good of the nation over party or hold American ideals sacred.

      1. Iconoclast says:

        The President reacts to stimuli from the propaganda wing of the Marxist arm of the Democratic Party, better known as the MSM.

        1. Donald Schmidt says:

          While I have no issue with you characterizing Trump as someone who is a reactionary president rather (rather than a thoughtful one), perhaps you should learn more about what constitutes propaganda before making such a statement.

          While there is no actual “Marxist arm of the Democratic Party” (other than in the minds of conspiracy theorists), I concede that the Dems, just as the Republicans, continually go way over the line with petty accusations of the other party.

          However, that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Trump is, as 2 Timothy 3:2-9 describes, a “lover of self, lover of money, proud, arrogant, abusive…ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, one who does not love good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, a lover of pleasure rather than lover of God,” and, to his followers, “having the appearance of godliness,” but denying its power, all of which are readily apparent by his words and deeds to those who choose to see through their own bias. So, yeah…thanks for your Russia-inspired and unsupported comments designed to further divide our nation.

          1. Iconoclast says:

            Oh yeah, Donald. Your little Russia remark shows what you are. People like you are the ones dividing the nation.

        2. John D. Partin says:

          Iconoclast, you and John Owens and Jim D have to be among the most stupid people in this blog because things that don’t even exist count as “evidence” with you, while things that do exist don’t count as evidence at all with you. I just told John Owens that I wouldn’t waste my time talking directly to him anymore and will keep my word to him, but I didn’t say that I wouldn’t talk about him or you or Jim D or anyone else here that I please to my heart’s content. John Owens is stupid enough to think that my not talking directly to him will, somehow, shorten my posts in here or posts about him, but he is in for a very rude awakening, as are you!!! There is no Marxist arm of the Democratic Party, except according to idiots such as you and John Owens and Jim D and your ilk and that is certainly a right-wing fantasy on all of your parts!!! I’ll have more to say to all of you later about this and many other things because, as Al Pacino said in the movie The Scent of a Woman: “I’m just getting warmed up”!!!

          1. John D. Partin says:

            Iconoclast, your handle means a destroyer of icons and idols, but, in your case, you are only a very selective destroyer of icons because you only go after what you perceive to be “icons and idols of the Left Wing”, while you leave the actual icons and idols of the Right Wing untouched and even help to adorn and adore them even more!!!! Trumpelstiltskin or “Our Fearless Leader”, as Boris and Natasha would call him, is one of those many Right-Wing Idols that you leave untouched and help to adorn and adore even more. He said that he loves Kim Jong Un, despite that tyrant’s atrocious human rights violations in North Korea!!! That is how “objective” and “discerning” you are about one of your many idols, which is, actually, not objective and discerning about him at all!!! You don’t care about the “President”‘s (he isn’t really the President, since he stole the election, the same as George W. Bush did!!!) affair with Stormy Daniels, but you and your ilk were all over Bill Clinton’s “affair” with Monica Lewinsky (mainly, just her giving him blowjobs in the Oval Office). That is the kind of double standard and dishonesty and stupidity that you conservatives operate on!!!! You can’t, honestly, claim that Stormy Daniels just “made up the whole affair with him” because she wouldn’t have been paid not to talk about something that never happened, but that doesn’t stop all of you from dishonestly claiming that “she just made it all up and it never really happened”, since dishonesty is what you are all about and constantly practice every day and waking hour!!!!! Quite obviously, it did happen, but nothing ever proves anything against Trumpelstiltskin to you idiotic and lying Trumpophiles!!!! Many people in his own White House staff and cabinet have called him an IDIOT!!!! (and they should certainly know far more about him from daily dealings with him than you or any other Trumpophiles, who are merely looking at him and blindly and gullibly believing and swallowing hook, line, and sinker anything that he says about himself from a distance, “know” about him!!!), and STILL!!!, despite that first hand testimony of these people who are daily dealing with that MORON!!!!! in the White House, you go right on believing in and following that BLOWHARD!!!! and FOOL!!!!!, like the stupid sheeple people that you are!!!!! That is how blind and gullible all of you are about Trumpelstiltskin and how actually non-iconoclastic you are about him!!! He only had to nominate this sexual predator Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court and cheat and play political games with his cronies the Republican Senators to get him appointed to the Supreme Court to know that all of his slaves (you and all other conservatives) would immediately bleat and fall in line behind his choice and actions in this matter, like the dumb little sheep that you all are!!!! If you aren’t even objective and discerning about this “President” himself, how could you possibly be objective and discerning about anyone else that he is merely nominating for a post on the Supreme Court?!! What you aren’t capable of doing for the greater matter, you can forget all about doing for the lesser matter, which can slip by much easier!!! The Russians meddled in the so-called “election” that put him into office and he only tries to “excuse” that by saying that “Well, China has meddled in our elections, too” (as though, even if it is true, that, somehow, makes it any better!)—and you sheep again just say “Baaaa, baaaa, baaaa” and follow him!!! He got his money from his father and has NO!!! actual business acumen or ability at all, as the New York Times article on him proves. If he can’t handle even his own businesses, why would any reasonable people think that he could run the business of this country’s government. No reasonable people would, but, fortunately for Trumpelstilskin, he doesn’t rely on reasonable people and didn’t need them to get into office, but only all of you obviously unreasonable and gullible people!!! John Owens has a problem with my long posts because they are too much for him to understand and respond to adequately, since I don’t stop at the word “If”, and so let’s see if you are any smarter than he or any other conservative is, which isn’t really very bloody likely at all!!!! John Owens has admitted that he is incapable of intelligently answering my posts and doesn’t actually have an intelligent answer for them because all that he ever does is give me evasions, deflections, changing of the subject, smoke screens, and other such tactics. Let’s see if you can give me any reasonable responses to this post and not just more of his same tactics. John Owens is too afraid of trying to talk a hard-core neo-Nazi or Klansman out of his bigotry against Jews or black people and let that guy give him a taste of his own medicine and attitude toward people when they talk to him about gay rights and gay marriage or about standing up for women and believing Dr. Ford and other women who accuse men of sexual assault or rape. He is afraid that that would open his own mind, too. So, how about you? Why don’t you try to talk to a hard-core neo-Nazi or Klansman and argue them out of their bigotry and let them give you a taste of your own medicine and attitude toward people when they talk to you about these issues or are you too afraid to do so, too? Let me know how it goes, if you’re actually brave enough to try it. Was this long enough for you or too much for you to understand, too? John Owens is extremely childish, since his final parting shot to me was that I am “wrong, wrong, wrong about everything, everything, everything” (like he is a six year old!!!) and that is why I won’t waste any more time trying to reason with him directly because he is far too childish and stupid to understand me!!! So, let’s see if you are any more adult and sensible than he is and can give me some actually intelligent answers to my post here, if it gets posted. In the meantime, you might want to qualify your handle a lot more precisely by stipulating that you aren’t actually a destroyer of all icons, but only of those few that you perceive to be “icons of the Left”—-and not even those very well at all!!!!

          2. Iconoclast says:

            Ouch! Ewww! That smarts so much, John! Your scathing commentary has cut me to the core! Oh, the inhumanity!

            Umm, just in case you have not noticed, Johnny P, the “icons and idols of the Right Wing” have very few defenders on this blatantly left-leaning ULC Monastery Blog, and are pretty much the only ones being slandered and mindlessly attacked. If you tell blatant lies or speak in slanderous bigotry concerning a Democrat or outright Communist, I will defend them also. I despise Jane Fonda and Bernie Sanders, but if you just make up terrible things to say about them which have no foundation, I will speak up on their behalf. Maybe you should learn a little bit about balance, honesty, being just, which obviously are not part(s) of your repertoire.

    Hear-hear. Unfortunately in our current state of discourse, truth is only that which affirms ones established beliefs.

    I am taking my toys and going home way to much negativity here. Once again y’all are going down the path of separation just what “they” want

    religion, race or economics😴
    This is my take on all of the post so far:
    The lefties on this post are going to add to the made up global warming oh my!
