Tuesday Open Thread | Joy Reid Warns The High-Fiving GOP: More Evidence And Allegations Against Kavanaugh Are Coming

While Republicans take a victory lap over the confirmation of an accused sexual predator that the majority of the country doesn’t support, Joy Reid warned them that evidence against Brett Kavanaugh could jeopardize his position on the United States Supreme Court.

From the thousands of unreleased documents from Kavanaugh’s time in the Bush administration to the possibility of more accusers coming forward, the new Supreme Court justice is still not out of the woods.

In other words, it’ll take more than a sham FBI investigation to keep the truth under wraps

“We really do not have a road map for how to handle the prospect of a Supreme Court justice with so many outstanding complaints or potential complaints against him,” Reid said on Monday.

Joy Reid explained why we are in “uncharted territory” when it comes to Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court seat:

    To have Ben Carson, Candace Owens and Stacey Dash in the same room is a lobotomized dream come true for white conservatives who want to use them as the example of a Black person who condones bigotry. Well, this is actually happening at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit on October 25 through October 28 in Washington, D.C.

        It is amazing and heartbreaking how many of our leaders in government and industry are willing to overlook atrocities for a piece of the powerful pie. Money can buy many things but self respect, honor and peace are not for sale.

        Andrew Denver, CO April 6, 2018
        Yes, it still is just money that makes… Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Dwayne Johnson, Rupert Murdoch, Richard Branson, Sergey Brin, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Harvard and MIT, Oprah, Trump, and as ever the Bush/Clinton machine… all spin around just like tops on this boy prince’s desk.

        What a sad display from a once-great nation.

        I wish I was present at the party where Rupert Murdock and Mike Bloomberg were raising their wine glasses for the Price Mohammed bin Salman while he was claiming that it was the Iran revolution in 1979 which caused the Saudi Hijackers of 9/11 killing innocent passengers and people on the ground. He is been going around and telling this story at every stop on his tour. This is the kind of damage Trump’s presidency has inflicted on this country and of course, greedy vultures of this society have been instrumental in that process.

        Sean Atlanta April 6, 2018
        Who says that there’s constant discord between the Trump administration and the wealthy “liberal” elite? Looks like everyone from Trump, to arms manufacturers, public relations firms, to Harvard, Oprah, Gates, and Bezos, can’t wait to rub shoulders with this murderous tyrant.

        Fawad Palo Alto, CA April 6, 2018
        What a nauseating piece about wealthy American elites sucking up to immoral oil wealth. Prince Salman’s reforms have been little more than “lipstick on a pig” to try to get out of the oil-dependency penalty box and to appease superficial western concerns to make them allies in an irrational hatred of Iran.

        There is no semblance of a rule of law (witness the extortion of other princes), zero reforms for the rights of abused immigrant laborers, steadfast support of the worst repressive regimes like Sisi, irrational targeting of Qatar for having independent policies and continued coercion of states like Pakistan to provide generals and soldiers for imposing mindless suffering on Yemenis. Even on the personal front his lavish half a billion dollar each vanity purchases of an estate in Paris, a super-luxury yacht and Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi tell me everything I need to know about the savior prince so far. Women being able to drive and using Snapchat in 2018 may impress self-interested American officials, business leaders and gullible journos but it doesn’t impress me.

    MS ARE BIGGEST GAS LIGHTERS OF THEM ALL

    Researchers: No Evidence That Russia Is Messing With Campaign 2018—Yet
    By the first week of October 2016, Russia’s pawprints were all over the presidential race. Not this year, researchers say.

    (JUST WHO ARE THESE RESEARCHERS, PRAY TELL?)

    Kevin Poulsen,
    Spencer Ackerman
    10.08.18 8:01 PM ET

    All eyes are peeled for foreign interference in November’s elections. But amid the Senate hearings on election security and indictments, the warning sirens and reports, experts in computer security and influence operations are quietly acknowledging an elephant in the room, or, more accurately, a bear that isn’t. With just 28 days to go before the midterm elections, they haven’t found any evidence yet of direct Russian interference in 2018’s races.

    By the first week of October 2016, Russia’s paw-prints were all over the presidential race. Wikileaks had already dumped thousands of DNC emails stolen by Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate, the GRU, and was on the verge of doing the same to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. A persona created by Russian intelligence was giving press interviews and chatting with a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle. Provocateurs at Russia’s infamous troll factory in St. Petersburg had already organized pro-Trump and anti-Clinton rallies around the country, drawing hundreds of Americans into the streets to wave MAGA signs and dangle from Vladimir Putin’s invisible strings.

    This year, crickets.

    don’t you just find it amazing how the war on GOP is supposed to be all about Brett Kavanaugh?

    ‘This is war’: The fight to impeach Brett Kavanaugh is about to become a defining issue of the 2018 elections — and beyond

    “Brett Kavanaugh is a predator, and the American public knows it,” Sean McElwee, a progressive activist who founded the think tank Data for Progress, told Business Insider. “His appointment is a lifetime appointment only if progressives give up the fight.”

    McElwee said progressives who spend millions on Senate seats should be willing to spend “even more on Supreme Court seats.”

    “Pretend Kavanaugh is up for reelection every day of his life,” he said. “Disrupt his life, poll his approval, run ads attacking his record. Dig up opposition research and keep it in the media.”

    Even if Democrats were to regain control of the House, removing Kavanaugh from the bench would be virtually impossible. For him to be kicked off the court, two-thirds of the Senate would need to vote to do so, and Democrats have no shot of gaining such a Senate majority this fall.

And if he can whip up other assaulters who wish to pretend they’re ‘innocent’, the better..

      In much the same way Kavanaugh uses his poor daughters as buffers …to protect him from anticipated protests …which is why he had the poor girls missing school today to go play buffer at the SC today …against those protesting their dad’s undeserved ascent to that August body..
