Wondering whether it matters if Kavanaugh is innocent or guilty, and why isn't he withdrawing his nomination voluntarily, because, in no particular order:

He would put his fellow Justices in the untenable position of never knowing whether his opinions rest on the shoulders of a rigorous examination of the law or on those of someone with seriously questionable character who therefore may not be able to make reasoned determinations of law.

He taints, going into the position, the entire procedure of confirmation a Justice because we may never know what actually happened, unless, of course, the other men supposedly in the room come forward.

It now draws into further question his apparent belief that POTUS is above the law, because, apparently, if he himself did what he is accused of doing, he thinks he, too, is above the law. Is his belief about POTUS based on his belief about a Justice of the Supreme Court?

Nor is his an elected position, a limited term from which he could be ousted by a Vote of the People against him next election.

And, finally, all this stuff about TROTUS thinking Kavanaugh is one of the 'finest' people is meaningless, because, well...Paul Manafort.

If Kavanaugh is to sit on the bench, it would be good to know without question that he did not do what he is accused of doing.

Seth Klarman was once the biggest donor to the Republican Party in New England. This year he’s giving some $20 million to Democrats. “One of the reasons I’m willing to come out of my shell and talk to you is because I think democracy is at stake. And maybe I’ll be able to convince some other people of that. And get them to support Democrats in 2018.”

"Ohio billionaire and longtime Republican donor Les Wexner says he is officially done with the party, and was prompted to leave after former President Barack Obama visited the state. Wexner, the CEO of retail conglomerate L Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works, announced at a leadership summit in Columbus on Thursday that he “won’t support this nonsense in the Republican Party” anymore, The Columbus Dispatch reported."

The bottom line is that if the more women who run for office, the greater the chance there will be more women in the House, the Senate and as Governors. Put another way, if ZERO women run for elected office, there is ZERO chance there will be any more women representing our populace than there are now. It's a complex mix of gender, numbers, the time in history, the pendulum, the response to the current occupant of the WH and his cronies, the movement. Women, Our Time Has Come.

Ahhhhh...now I know why I'm a Contrarian. I graduated from St. John's! ;)

Calling those of you who have a Liberal Arts education and love to read and write, and spend your life devoted to conversing, discussing and exploring literature, poetry, art, science, math, film, music, politics, culture and every sort and manner of intellectual, philosophical and spiritual topic imaginable.

At St. John's College students don't memorize concepts and take tests. Students read original texts and write papers, with long hours spend discussing books around a seminar table, instead of spending their years in college worrying about grades.

My St. John's education has served me well my entire life. Long live the Liberal Arts.

Opinion: I am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration

"The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. I would know. I am one of them." Anonymous Op-Ed piece for the New York Times, written by a Senior White House Adminstrator

ALL THE PRESIDENT'S BEST MEN

Michael Cohen, TROTUS's longtime personal lawyer, pleaded guilty in Federal Court on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, to multiple counts of bank fraud and one count of tax evasion, also admitting in court that he made a payment to Stormy Daniels, at the direction of Donald Trump, to silence her in advance of the November 2016 election.

Paul Manafort, TROTUS's former Campaign Chairman, found guilty on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, of 8 counts of tax evasion and bank fraud (with 10 counts outstanding).

Michael Flynn, TROTUS's former National Security Advisor, was charged and pleaded guilty in December of 2017 of making false statements to the FBI.

The actions of our Dictator-in-Chief, making certain that no one who disagrees with him, that no one with more experience than him, will have access to information that could be harmful to our country. The TROTUS bubble grows ever larger, with a smaller and smaller group of people breathing the air inside of it.

I hope that all of the men and women whose security clearances Trump revokes, are invited by the networks to do a National Town Hall about the danger of this fear-and-insecurity-based behavior and action.

"Mr. Trump has questioned the loyalties of national security and law enforcement officials and dismissed some of their findings — particularly the conclusion that Moscow intervened in the 2016 election — as attacks against him."

TROTUS has a problem with LeBron James, who has started the I Promise school (240 third and fourth graders presently, with plans in 2022 to have grades 1-8) in his native Akron, Ohio... Because LeBron is a better basketball player? Because LeBron is a better man? Because LeBron is more respected? Because The LeBron James Family Foundation has a powerful vision and Mission? Because LeBron would sit down and talk to Barack Obama but not TROTUS? Or because LeBron is black and has said that TROTUS is dividing this country along racial lines.

Read about LeBron's Foundation and his school projects here:
