From just now....

 

If this is real then how did Kavanaugh pass six FBI background checks without finding any of it?

This is an allegation that Kavanaugh personally participated in and perpetrated multiple gang-rapes.  This is a direct allegation of serious felony conduct -- a claim that Kavanaugh is a violent, serial sexual predator worse than virtually any currently in prison for a similar offense.  In fact this makes Cosby's alleged 'lude game look like a damned Girl Scout picnic.

Folks, true or not this is the literal end of America.

EITHER THIS IS THE MOST-OUTRAGEOUS ACT OF LIBEL I'VE EVER  SEEN PERPETRATED AGAINST SOMEONE IN PUBLIC SERVICE OR OUR FBI IS UTTERLY ****ING WORTHLESS OR, QUITE POSSIBLY, EVEN WORSE AS THE ONLY OTHER POSSIBLE EXPLANATION IS THAT THE FBI IS AND HAS BEEN INTENTIONALLY PUTTING RAPISTS IN OUR COURTS AS JUDGES AND THEN USING THEIR PAST AS A CUDGEL TO COMPEL THEM TO **** PEOPLE LEFT, RIGHT AND CENTER TO SUIT THEIR WILL BY BLACKMAILING THEM -- AND HAS BEEN DOING SO FOR LITERAL DECADES.

WHICH IS IT AND WHY ISN'T THE ENTIRE DAMN NATION IN THE STREETS RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE, BECAUSE ONE OF THOSE TWO MUST BE TRUE.

Uh.....

A 52-year-old babysitter accused of stabbing five people—including three babies under her care—at a childcare facility early Friday morning in New York was suffering from “psychological distress,” authorities said.

Two senior law enforcement officials told The Daily Beast that the building houses a birth-tourism facility for Chinese women who give birth to a baby in the United States so that the child can automatically obtain American citizenship.

The woman, identified by a senior NYPD official as Yu Fen Wang, was found in the basement of the three-story building with a slash wound to her left wrist, authorities said. She was arrested and charges are pending.

and

The petitioner, Kuang-Te Wang, a native of Taiwan, entered the United States on January 18, 1985 as a nonimmigrant visitor authorized to remain for a period not to exceed one year.   Petitioner's wife, Yu-Fen Wang, entered the United States approximately one month later in February 1985.   Wang and his wife remained illegally in the United States beyond the expiration of the one year period.   In 1989, federal agents, without a warrant, entered Wang's home and arrested him on suspicion of transporting illegal aliens.1  

Same person or not?

I have no idea.  But the name matches, and so-called "birth tourism"........ hmmmm...

There's no way to know offhand and that is a common name -- but if it is the same woman or she's here illegally otherwise then it still remains the same issue, as I maintained with Mollie Tibbetts -- none of the offenses committed by illegal invaders would be committed if we enforced the damn law and made them all leave.

Oh oh.....

(Reuters) - A Texas man whose plan to sell blueprints for 3-D printed plastic guns spurred national controversy was charged on Wednesday with paying an underaged girl for sex at a hotel, according to court documents.

If you're going to poke the bull make sure you didn't do something really stupid first...

This is the stupidity of Demoncrats -- may the entire Senate be struck by an asteroid now.

In the email, Kavanaugh, who was working as a lawyer in the Bush White House, said he “generally” favored race-neutral security measures, but said they need to “grapple” with the “interim question of what to do before a truly effective and comprehensive race-neutral system is developed and implemented.”

And in that he was correct.

Not all Muslims or people from said nations are terrorists.  But nearly all terrorists in the modern day are Muslims!

Therefore in the context of post-9/11 until you can determine who is a potential threat and who is not, if the goal is to protect national security you must apply greater scrutiny to those who have a higher probability of being terrorists.

This remains true to the present day, incidentally.

Does this "damage" Kavanaugh?  Oh hell no -- it marks him as both a rational man and a competent jurist.

**** you Booker sideways with a rusty chainsaw; may this blow up in your (and all who supported this outrageously stupid act) face.

Oh my....

Regarding Cupich, one cannot fail to note his ostentatious arrogance, and the insolence with which he denies the evidence that is now obvious to all: that 80% of the abuses found were committed against young adults by homosexuals who were in a relationship of authority over their victims.

During the speech he gave when he took possession of the Chicago See, at which I was present as a representative of the Pope, Cupich quipped that one certainly should not expect the new Archbishop to walk on water. Perhaps it would be enough for him to be able to remain with his feet on the ground and not try to turn reality upside-down, blinded by his pro-gay ideology, as he stated in a recent interview with America Magazine. Extolling his particular expertise in the matter, having been President of the Committee on Protection of Children and Young People of the USCCB, he asserted that the main problem in the crisis of sexual abuse by clergy is not homosexuality, and that affirming this is only a way of diverting attention from the real problem which is clericalism. In support of this thesis, Cupich “oddly”made reference to the results of research carried out at the height of the sexual abuse of minors crisis in the early 2000s, while he “candidly” ignored that the results of that investigation were totally denied by the subsequent Independent Reports by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in 2004 and 2011, which concluded that, in cases of sexual abuse, 81% of the victims were male. In fact, Father Hans Zollner, S.J.,Vice-Rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University, President of the Centre for Child Protection, and Member of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, recently told the newspaper LaStampa that “in most cases it is a question of homosexual abuse."

Still wanna play "it's not a gay, and in many cases pedophile priest problem" card eh?

Even in the tragic affair of McCarrick, Pope Francis’s behavior was no different. He knew from at least June 23, 2013 that McCarrick was a serial predator. Although he knew that he was a corrupt man, he covered for him to the bitter end; indeed, he made McCarrick’s advice his own, which was certainly not inspired by sound intentions and for love of the Church. It was only when he was forced by the report of the abuse of a minor, again on the basis of media attention, that he took action [regarding McCarrick] to save his image in the media.

Still wanna claim Satan Francis didn't know and didn't explicitly protect and advance all of it, when he in fact still is, eh?

Better read that paper, end-to-end.

I strongly suggest having a leak-proof and large garbage can within arm's reach before you do as the allegations within are truly projectile-vomit inducing.

What is being described here is organized criminal activity on a grand scale that almost-certainly reaches a flat-out slam-dunk Racketeering case level against dozens if not hundreds of people in the United States.  Don't even get me started on what it ought to mean for the future of Vatican City and Pope Francis personally.
