Open Thread | So Kavanaugh Is Who We Thought He Was

When the fraud of the Confirmation Hearing for Brett Kavanaugh was happening, there were those of us who knew that is was a crock. That he was a crock. That everything around the hearing smelled and just screamed FRAUD & SCAM. The rushing of it; the denial of documents from his time in Government; the questionable financial problems; the sexual assault accusations. He was a rotten candidate, being put forth by a rotten Administration. Him being on the Supreme Court is a disgrace. A new book points out how much a fraud the hearings were, and that Kavanaugh perjured himself.

LarryO had a good segment on it:

    As Dems raucously push the Biden is a ‘cognitively-declined, virulent racist gaffe machine’ narrative, the hustling coons are busy targeting disenfranchised, low-info audiences and actively helping sell a dumb, incurious, insecure, grifting, treasonous con and virulent racist as not.. casting a treasonous buffoon as ‘savior’ ..and as doing for black folks, what ‘Obama wouldn’t and couldn’t’..

    Do not underestimate the effectiveness of misinformation, disinformation like this.. or of deliberately muddied waters.. and what I call the

    And just like Mark Burnett successfully helped create, spin and sell a morally and financially bankrupt grifting loser as a ‘serious, successful billionaire’, don’t be surprised when folks start believing that the callous racist narcissist is somehow an open-minded, all-embracing, caring, selfless, benevolent, God’s saint on earth much the same way his immoral, hollow, callous, self-involved, gold-digging, illiterate moll turned birther 3rd wife is somehow an honorable, virgin, selfless, caring, deep, polyglot, intellectual Mother Theresa saint..

    Betsy DeVos Loses Student Loan Lawsuit Brought by 19 States
    By Andrew M Harris and Daniel Flatley
    September 12, 2018, 4:42 PM CDT

    U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos lost a lawsuit brought by 19 states and the District of Columbia, accusing her department of wrongly delaying implementation of Obama-era regulations meant to protect students who took out loans to attend college from predatory practices.

    A Washington federal court judge on Wednesday ruled the department’s postponement of the so-called Borrower Defense rule was procedurally improper.

    Fake court dates are being issued in immigration court. Here’s why


    So why are made-up court dates getting issued in the first place by agencies like USCIS and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement?

    Immigration authorities send notices to people who have been denied residence or citizenship. But until June of last year, USCIS would send the notices without dates, because the function of putting the cases on the calendar was left for the local courts to do at a later time. The forms just said the time and place was “to be determined,” which often occurred years later.

    The reason USCIS sends the notices is because it is the official charging document that makes a foreign national deportable. Immigration lawyers sued, saying notices without court dates and times are defective. Last November, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed, ruling that in order for the government to claim that an immigrant is deportable, the notices have to list a date and place to appear in court.

    In order to comply with the ruling, immigration officials began sending notices with a time and place — even if they were fake. The reason, lawyers say, is because having a notice with a date and place allows the government to stop immigrants from qualifying for deportation relief.

    According to immigration law, a foreign national is eligible for relief from deportation if the person has lived in the U.S. for a period of 10 years prior to the receipt of the notice to appear. That’s why the date that’s printed on a notice to appear is important: If an immigrant gets a notice to appear that provides a date and time anytime before the 10 years are up, the government can claim that it’s enough to begin the process of deportation and stop the clock toward eligibility for deportation relief.

    “It’s arbitrary,” Fox-Isicoff said. “This causes the line at the immigration court to be quite lengthy, as these individuals cannot find their case on the docket. They have no way of knowing without going to the immigration court if the date is real or not, spending extensive funds on counsel, and often traveling huge distances.”

    Making it even more difficult is the fact that USCIS doesn’t communicate with the courthouses in real time when issuing the dates, so the courthouses don’t know to put it on the court calendar.

    “It’s creating chaos, inside the courthouse and out. People are showing up to court and discovering that their date was fake, and clerks are being overwhelmed by the masses who aren’t even supposed to be there,” said Kelli Stump, an immigration attorney whose practice is based in Oklahoma City. “It’s basically a ploy to disqualify people from certain immigration relief in court, and perhaps even to spark waves of fear and anxiety.”

    Republicans Don’t Believe in Democracy


    What can Democrats do about this situation? They need to win elections, but all too often that won’t be sufficient, because they confront a Republican Party that at a basic level doesn’t accept their right to govern, never mind what the voters say. So winning isn’t enough; they also have to be prepared for that confrontation.

    And surely the first step is recognizing the problem exists. Which brings me to the Democratic presidential primary race.

    The leading candidates for the Democratic nomination differ considerably in both their personalities and their policy proposals, but these pale beside their differences from Donald Trump and his party. All of them are decent human beings; all would, if given the chance, move America in a notably more progressive direction.

    The real chasm between the candidates is, instead, in the extent to which they get it — that is, the extent to which they understand what they’re facing in the modern G.O.P.

    The big problem with Joe Biden, still the front-runner, is that he obviously doesn’t get it. He’s made it clear on many occasions that he considers Trump an aberration and believes that he could have productive, amicable relations with Republicans once Trump is gone.

    Which raises the question: Even if Biden can win, is he too oblivious to govern effectively?

    Trump’s Homeland Security purge isn’t over just yet
    09/18/19 09:20 AM
    By Steve Benen

    With all of the litigation surrounding the Department of Homeland Security and Donald Trump’s immigration policies, it seems like a curious time to fire DHS’s general counsel, but that’s what happened yesterday.

    The White House on Tuesday fired John Mitnick, the general counsel for the Department of Homeland Security, after months of shake-up at an agency responsible for carrying out President Trump’s immigration agenda. […]

    Mr. Mitnick’s exit comes as the department fights off multiple lawsuits challenging Mr. Trump’s immigration policies.
