CHARLOTTESVILLE TO PITTSBURGH

Trump Never Gets It Quite Right

When something bad happens, there are people we can count on to give us sympathy, administer some empathy and help us through a tragedy. Then there are people who we can never count on when times get rough and friends just can’t be found. I think most of us would rather be alone instead of hearing the blaming and gaming of a soulless politician.

As the climax to a dark and terrible week of targeted pipe bombs across the nation and innocent people being gunned down in Pittsburgh by a murderous ingrate, we have been challenged once again. Is hate winning?

When Donald Trump read his prepared response, he said that anti-Semitism and violence has no place in America. However, he has never said that Neo-Nazis, White Nationalists and the failing KKK have no place in the United States. He never confronts them with his words. His lack of indictment of hate groups is reprehensible. It feels like he is colluding with them. He refuses to define the cause of the hate or ever think about his role in this movement.

This is what we get from this disgusting President, “The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country. Actually, it is their Fake & Dishonest reporting which is causing problems far greater than they understand!”

Blaming the media for what is happening in America is worse than deflection, it’s unamerican. The media will always ask important questions. If our leaders’ answers make no sense, the press should and will simply keep asking. To be a true statesman, a leader must be transparent and tell the truth. Trump fails this test time and time again.

If the Donald was smart, he would realize that his “blame deflection” is teaching Americans to seek a boogieman rather than the truth. When Trump doesn’t have a fact to back up his outrageous points, he invents one. When our citizens are hurt in some way, Trump’s finger pointing prevents the proper processing of sad and demoralizing information. Why would the President of the United States talk about the death penalty before anyone was charged in the shooting of eleven people in Pittsburgh? Didn’t he preach recently about Brett Kavanaugh being innocent before being proclaimed guilty? At best, Trump is the most inconsistent President, ever!

Trump’s words after mass shootings and hate crimes proves he lacks the ability to communicate a message of reason and hope. He just wants to throw the person in the electric chair and get back to those rallies with his adoring fans. He lacks compassion for those suffering and he doesn’t get that his words have given these actors their motivation.

It is true that a crazy hater did fire bullets into a group of Republicans practicing baseball, but that doesn’t answer this question. What do we do about it? When questioned about gun control, Trump quickly promotes the tired NRA messaging. There should have been a guard to defend the Temple in Pittsburgh. More guns. Good guys with guns. Semi-automatic guns, like the AR-15 used in this most recent massacre, will always do more damage and cause more death than a hand-gun. Can we at least start there?

It’s not a coincidence that the hate-filled social media posts of the alleged shooter in Pittsburgh used the word “invaders” instead of “illegals” to describe the people in the caravan walking through Mexico. The alleged murderer may have criticized Trump for being a “globalist,” but the fact Trump vigorously declared himself a “nationalist” the other day sent a message to White Nationalists that Trump is their guy. When does Donald Trump become “our guy.” You know, the president for all Americans.

And finally, on the way back from a rally on the same day eleven Jewish souls were lost, Trump’s priority was the criticizing of a baseball manager. Look at this tweet, “Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!”

REALLY? When a whole city was mourning, this was Trump’s focus? He just had to blame someone for something. I am sure Dave Roberts, the L.A. Dodger’s manager, would never tell Trump how to do his job. We know that Trump hates anyone telling him what he needs to do. As anyone can clearly see, there is no empathy in the Trump White House.

DENIERS AND DINGBATS

Trump Ignores Domestic Danger

What kind of President do we have? What kind of person blames the press for what has happened in the last 72 hours? The mailing of explosive devices to Democrats and critics of Donald Trump puts him is a precarious position. His mild condemnation of these findings was nullified by a reintroduction of his blast at the press. If you follow his tweets, you can easily see his redirection rather than leadership.

Last night’s tweet gave us, “Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, ‘it’s just not Presidential!’”

This is the second attack on America that Donald J. Trump is choosing to ignore or attempt to use for his own gain. The “leader” of the free world still doesn’t believe Russia tried to wreak havoc on our 2016 elections, and now he is swatting away the criticism of his harsh rhetoric with more divisive bombast. Why doesn’t he just admit that the list of those receiving the devices contains the names of many people on his shit list?

Trump sends out his dingbats, like Sarah Sanders, to agree with this assessment that the free press is somehow to blame for the deeds of a crazy person. If he and his deniers would just SHUT UP and wait for the facts, they would better serve the American people.

And then this morning (10-26-2018), the President of the United States responded to two additional bombs being sent to Former CIA Director James Clapper and NJ Senator Cory Booker with this tweet, “Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows – news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!”

By putting the word “Bomb” in quotes, it’s clear that Donald Trump doesn’t take these terrorist acts seriously. I thought he was the President. Isn’t that what a president is supposed to do?

The terrorist mailed several bombs to people using the mail address of CNN. This shows the playbook of the nutcase is intended to disrupt the news network that Trump fears and hates the most. It’s almost like Trump is blaming CNN because their mailing address was used.

In the end, we will not gain any insight from the White House. We cannot depend on Donald Trump to tell us the truth, even when citizen lives are at risk. There is a voice in my head that whispers, “He likes what is happening.” Why would I think that? Maybe because President Trump has done nothing to make me think otherwise.

I am ashamed that Donald Trump is president.  He is just a politician who cannot see anything that happens outside of the context of elections and his own reputation. It’s all so sad for America.

DEMONONIZATION MATTERS

Trump’s Vitriol Being Acted Out

We have been writing this blog since Donald J. Trump became president, and in many of these missives we have warned that when an extreme ideolog stirs up his base, bad things happen. Trump rallies show us just how violent people can get when they are urged to hate journalists or anyone with a different opinion. With Trump holding the highest office in the land, we seem to have a domestic problem. It’s almost as if Russia has their hand in this great divide of America. It’s exactly what they would execute if they had the power. Maybe they have the power.

President Trump has multiple personalities and all of them lie. When confronted, he tries to be “presidential,” but he continually tweets messages of negativity and hate. The Donald has his enemies list, and it’s become apparent today that the crazies are attempting to gain his love by doing bad things to those on that list. When someone sends bombs to former presidents, actors and news networks, we are at a serious crossroad. Something must be done.

Trump’s harsh rhetoric, stupid conspiracy theories and hate speeches have pushed the fringe element to the edge. It’s time for Congress to comprehend that Donald Trump is bad for America. Trump has never even started to bring America together. Instead, he has divided us and turned basic traditions, customs and laws upside down. His thoughts and actions are not good for our country. He mocks decent conduct and has abandoned the respect and responsibility of the office. He has not fulfilled his pledge to protect all Americans.

We will learn more about the pipe bombs being sent to former presidents, movie stars and a news network, but Trump has can no longer brag about the lack of terrorism in America since he was elected. That was just another lie. STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT; the targets of these acts are Trump’s targets. The enemies of this terrorist appears to be the same people Trump doesn’t like.

I would urge everyone to google this reference in Wikipedia. I cannot believe that I would even think about what Hitler did to gain power when we are being attacked on our soil. I do not trust Trump and I am saddened to think he would ever promote this kind of activity.

We need to make sure that Trump is not complicit. We need to find out if these evil people are being motivated by Trump and, if so, they need to be condemned by the President. Trump has got to stop the vile demonization of Democrats and unnecessary bullying of our free press. If he cannot stop weaponizing his position, he should be impeached. He is inciting violence. And now we have proof.


WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

Trump is the problem

I hate elections and campaigns. For one thing, it’s all the posters on every corner which, under law, cannot be taken down until after the election. Then there’s the ton of TV spots telling us not to trust the other guy. Because of a previous Supreme Court ruling, we don’t even know who is paying for some of these ads, but we do know they are filled with venom, lies and misinformation. Most people in America just shake their heads and grin and bear these lies rather than doing something about them.

Things will never get better while Donald Trump is the President of the United States. If I was giving Trump advice, the first thing I would tell him to do is shut up. He talks too much and he comments too early in just about every situation. He’s not only the worst President, he is also the worst client for any attorney. Maybe that is why his legal team is in constant flux.

The murder of a Washington Post columnist in Istanbul is proof that the alliances Trump has made and hyped are not in the interest of the United States. Clearly, the Crown Prince ordered the assassination of the royal family critic and our Great Orange leader showed his complete lack of understanding by his flawed messaging during this tragedy. In short, his big mouth blew it.

The Donald gets played by dictators and tyrants, while distrusting allies and proven honest leaders of countries needed to maintain the world order. Trump, like a hormone fueled teenager acting out, is more interested in disrupting things rather than getting things done.

The stock market is wildly bouncing day to day. Experts present theories, but deep down inside they know it’s all about the uncertainty of Trump’s actions. No one can predict the short term, intermediate or long-term effects of his tariffs on steel and aluminum. The global economies are so entwined that forensic investigators are needed to determine the origin of the various parts of each car a nation produces. Donald Trump has disrupted manufacturing in America, and not in a good way.

Our president yells at his rallies that he is going to push a 10% tax cut through Congress before the midterm election, when Congress isn’t even in session. Not to rain on the president’s lies, but we cannot keep cutting taxes and get things done in America. TheBalance.com web site says the national debt has seriously risen. “Trump plans to add $4.775 trillion, a 29-percent increase from the $20.245 trillion debt at the end of Obama’s last budget for FY 2017.” During his campaign, Trump pledged to eliminate the national debt in eight years. That was just another lie he pumped out to get elected. In reality, he has so far added almost $5 trillion to the national debt. What a liar!

Donald Trump believes that truth, facts and actual government stats don’t matter, and that’s what aggravates me the most. If I was in the House of Representatives, my most important criteria for Trump’s impeachment would be his constant barrage of lies. How are we ever going to eliminate the political scum of politics and government without making politicians pay for their lies?

Could it be that Trump’s claim of journalists being the enemy of the people caused Jamal Khashoggi’s death at the hands of the Saudis? Did the tax cuts that Trump gave to large corporations and the wealthy give them a green light to buy back stock without properly rewarding their workers? The stock market wobbles, and Trump sends out Larry Kudlow to say the reason is a fear that Congress would be returned to the Democrats. Really?

To create fear and uncertainly, Trump claims the caravan coming from the Honduras through Mexico is a Democratic plot. This man talks about mobs, while creating a gang mentality in his followers. All the bad that happens cannot be blamed on Obama or the Democrats. Isn’t Trump the President?

Will this man ever understand that history will chronicle the turmoil he promoted as president instead of the wonderful things he initiated during his time in office? When wages don’t increase, that’s on him. When journalists are harassed or killed, that’s on him. When the cost of goods skyrockets, that’s on him.

Trump wants only credit and points to a scapegoat when anything goes bad. This President blamed Puerto Rico’s financial problems and weak infrastructure for the hardships and deaths suffered on the island during a catastrophic storm. What kind of person does that? And now he wants to say that Transgender people don’t know what they feel. How does he know what they feel?

Trump is the problem. As things get worse, we must hold him accountable for his bad decisions, lack of leadership and harsh language that hurts our allies and helps those who want a less powerful United States. Under some definitions, our president is a traitor. And traitors must be prosecuted.

ROGUE KILLERS

Transactional Trump Doctrine 

Every human life is important. Every U.S. President has understood the principles of never putting a price on human life and not negotiating with terrorists or governments for the release of hostages. In the past, we haven’t paid ransoms to kidnappers.

Even though we have an on again, off again relationship with the death penalty here in America, we do keep a watchful eye on human rights violations around the world. That makes what happened in Turkey at the Saudi Arabian consulate even more outrageous. Sixty-year old journalist and legal U.S. resident, Jamal Khashoggi, entered the Saudi consulate to finalize his marriage documents and has not seen since. To be clear, a consulate or embassy is the responsibility of the country that owns it, NOT the responsibility of the country on whose soil it stands. The Saudi government is accountable for happenings at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

In business, a profit and loss analysis is deployed in every decision. With Khashoggi, President Trump has been pushed into a corner. According to the Turkish government, the journalist was killed inside the consulate and then dismembered and taken out for disposal. The Turks claim they have audio and video proof. If this is true, America would have to redefine its relationship with Saudi Arabia. What will President Trump do?

When Trump was first asked about this situation, he flinched and said that this would not stop sales of arms to the Saudis because it would hurt jobs here in the U.S. Really? During a press conference he claimed, “We would be punishing ourselves by canceling arms sales to Saudi Arabia. The U.S. was competing against China and Russia for the $110 billion deal with the country”. So, I guess we are the country that will take the money and run. We are the country that says a journalist’s life is not worth $110 billion dollars. You see, it’s all about money. HUMAN RIGHTS is just something you talk about to seem moral.

As Trump started to waffle on this a bit, he introduced the cover story that was fed to him by that Saudi King that it might have been “rogue killers” who killed Khashoggi. Marco Rubio stood tall and said retaliation might include NOT selling arms to the Saudis. Both the Saudis and Trump should be worried. The Turks claim that have a tape.

How silly the Donald and Jared Kushner look now for making such a big deal about their relationship with the new ruthless Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS). This is the guy who, right after talking to Jared on the phone, rounded up all his relatives he disliked and put them under house arrest at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Trump even tweeted that he had full confidence in the new Saudi Prince. The President of the United States in an enabler of dictators and thugs.

While Saudi Arabia wages a complex war in Yemen, smart diplomatic minds know this war has nothing to do with Yemen interests. It’s is a proxy battle between the Saudis and Iran. Russia backs Iran, the U.S. backs the Saudis. And just like a guy who goes down to his basement to play with his model trains, the Crown Prince works the war in his backyard. Yemen is a pastime for a bored Prince playing army and killing people.

The Saudis want our guns and bombs, so they can continue this war without world conflicts getting in the way of the one million barrels of oil they pump each day. Now, if they have killed the Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi, they will reveal the intolerance they have employed for years as a Wahhabi Islamic state. They put people to death everyday for any breach of protocol or independence. Maybe they believed that Trump would do nothing. After all, in the Donald’s words, “Journalists are the enemy of the people.”

We know that Donald Trump is a misinformed, narcissistic, pathological liar. We also know that all he really wants is to be loved. It’s a flaw quickly overshadowed by a constant desire to fight back for even the slightest disparaging remark. He seems to think that defensiveness makes him a real man. He cannot stand to be wrong and he punches back at every challenge, even if he might be proven wrong. He typically forgets words he spoke just a few minutes ago, so he might not even know that he’s lying.

In this conundrum, money might trump human rights. Without an action by the Congress, Trump will do the deal with the Saudis and make America just another political whore in the world. What happens when someone like Putin kills critics and journalists? Oh, that’s right, he already has. What happens when a U.S. citizen and journalist is killed on foreign soil? What will the great Orange Leader do then? In some ways, Trump is very transparent. He will do nothing that hurts his base.

Our President is always looking for a scapegoat to accuse of some terrible thing. He can say black is white, blue is red, and right is wrong. While many Americans are embarrassed by this fake man in makeup, others believe Trump is a savior.

Sadly, the death of a journalist might just be racked up as the cost of doing business; a small price to pay to keep American workers producing more death and destruction around the world. The transactional Trump Doctrine is bad for America. He’s made a deal with the devil and murderers in the Middle East. What happened to America’s moral leadership in the world. Trump has killed it.


BRAIN DEAD DONALD

Trump’s Ignorance on Climate Change

Donald Trump profusely complimented Nikki Haley, the soon to depart U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, while almost brushing aside the latest report from the U.N. that we have ten years to fix the planet.

We know Trump has trafficked in the lie that Global Warming is a hoax created by China to take an advantage of our country, but that doesn’t stop Mother Nature from slapping us up the face. Maybe Trump will finally get it once his prize jewel, Mar-a-Lago, becomes flooded.

Now that we have a Category 4 storm ready to wreak havoc on Panama City, someone in the government should speak up and make sure that the President knows that this city is in Florida, not Panama.

Maybe Trump can divert from another of his time and fuel consuming political rallies to deliver the paper towels right after Michael destroys the panhandle. It’s clear to me that this president, between golf and rallies, has little time to read the U.N. report. Then there are some cynics who think he isn’t capable of reading at all.

According to The Guardian newspaper and web site, “The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.” For those of us who deal with Fahrenheit temperatures, that is 2.7 degrees F. Increases above that will bring more droughts, thus more fires, which then creates more global warming.

Any increases in the next ten to fifteen years would lead to the point of no return, meaning further floods, warmer ocean temperatures, more disastrous hurricanes and additional deaths. But Donald Trump is too busy using Twitter to put down his enemies. The more time Trump wastes, the less time to be a real leader.

The withdraw from treaties, such as the Paris Climate Accord, have nothing to do with what is really needed. It’s all about Trump’s conspiratorial nature and inability to use facts to make decisions. As Rex Tillerson said, “He’s a fucking moron!”

The Republican party is more than complicit. They are slowly becoming environment terrorists. History will show that these self-serving old white men have no regard for the planet or human life. They all must go unless they adopt a Paris Accord mentality. They are the problem. They are enabling the idiot in the White House.

Donald Trump doesn’t care about pollution and climate change. He wants to turn the clock back to 1950, burn coal and pollute our cities. With a carbon tax, we will never face the problem. Without understanding how bad it is, Trump will never do anything about Climate Change. He’s a one-man wrecking crew. Just look at what his E.P.A. has done with rule making. They are poisoning our world, and no one is speaking up. Time to get radical. Time to become the mob. Time to get rid of the guy.

REPUBLICAN WOMEN COMPLICIT

Trump’s Red Misogyny Spreads Across the Land

There was a time when Kanye West took the microphone on the stage of a Katrina Disaster Relief benefit and screamed, “George Bush doesn’t care about Black people.” Where is he now to stand up and say, “President Trump doesn’t care about women.” Oh yeah, he’s too busy wearing his red “Hitler hat” on TV, ineffectively trying to explain himself to everyone who made fun of his proclamations. In the end, evidence will prove that Mr. West has no worthy opinion about anything.

In Donald Trump’s world, men get to decide things and most, if not all, women with claims of sexual misconduct against any man, are NOT to be taken seriously. He mocks them, denies their accounts and to make matter worse, adds, “the Kavanaugh allegations show it’s a very scary time for young men in America.” The President of the United States went on stage at one of his redneck rallies and mocked the Senate Judiciary Committee testimony of Christine Blasey Ford. Our great Orange Leader doesn’t care about women. There, someone had to say it.

The group I would like to address today are the Republican women who go to Trump’s rallies and are complicit in the devaluation of women. If you have watched the HULU TV series The Handmaid’s Tale, you can imagine what would happen if those women, claiming to be patriots of America, stood by while Trump and his Supreme Court ruled against women.

The TV series is based on the best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood and is set in a place called Gilead, a totalitarian society that broke away from the United States and is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. The justification for taking power over women is a plummeting birth rate. In the story, the few remaining fertile women are forced into sexual servitude, so that the powerful people in the land can procreate. The religious overtones and language of this plot shows that a society could be taken over by zealots, you know, like Islamic states. Only in this one, it’s the far-right Christians who have all the power.

There is a flaw in our current reality when good Christian people get sucked into the dogma of The Donald without any regard for the fact the he personally could care less about Christianity. He worships money. And if we take the latest reportage from the New York Times to be only half true, Trump was taught by his father and crafty lawyers how to cheat the system long before he was able to talk in whole sentences. Well, he’s still struggling with learning how to do that, but the fraud and deception is hard-wired into the Trump Organization. Surprise, Surprise!

The Trumps have been stealing from the U.S. Treasury for more than a half century. When we finally get to see his tax returns, it will likely become clear that he hasn’t coughed up his fair share of taxes, ever. Since playing fair and being treated fairly is such a common theme with Donald Trump, it’s contra to the very martyr complex this anarchistic moron embodies. But I didn’t vote for him, like the majority of America.

Once women side with the men in every instance of sexual harassment, misconduct or violent attacks, who will be left to pray for the casualties? The lifelong psychological burdens placed on these women are unimportant to these red state lunatics. When it comes to getting one certain judge on the high court, the end justifies the means with these ladies. And we thought that women had progressed in these United States. I guess the orange man trumps logic, equal rights and control of women’s’ bodies.

When the government becomes the vehicle for religious goals and rules, we are no better than those religious states we occasionally put down with our words and actions. Brett Kavanaugh is a pawn in the passion play of government taking away more power from both men and women. He doesn’t have to be the chosen person to get the job done.  There are many overly conservative zealots on the court already, just pick one and put him in there. Why are we making this choice about whether you believe a woman who says he’s not fit to be there? He’s proven that he doesn’t have the temperament and is way too political to hold the post.

I can’t help but wonder why our new Supreme Court candidate is not a woman. It must be hard to find a female jurist who would be a guarantee to overturn Roe Vs. Wade for the Evangelicals. I don’t believe in the Supreme Court. Why would a supposed impartial group of deciders have built in bias in its selection process? Can’t a president just find someone who doesn’t have political bias?

If only the women of America would come together and help the men decide these things. But, unfortunately, millions of women in this country are complicit. It’s all politics, and they don’t see the light until it happens to one of their sons or daughters.

If you mock Dr. Ford, you are dismissing the power your grandmothers and mothers gained with their right to vote. Do you dismiss Jerry Sandusky and what happened at Penn State? Do you dismiss what happened to all those boys and girls at the hands to the Catholic Church? Do you dismiss what happened to thousands of gymnasts treated by their so-called male doctor? Why would you laugh at Dr. Ford at your Trump rallies? Have you no decency?

We’re seeing the results of people looking the other way with this white washed investigation of Kavanaugh’s misconduct. This complicity needs to be brought into the purifying light of a new day. How do you believe a man when his con job takes away your rights and gives him more power? Donald Trump doesn’t care about women who don’t give him what he wants. You’ve been warned, sisters.

COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION

Trump’s Vindictive SCOTUS Pick

Why are there so many controversies with the Trump presidency? Why have so many people departed the administration to date? Forget all that, here’s the most important question. Are we better off with Trump?

If you think that the administration’s policies are driving the stock market, then you probably think the Donald knows what he is doing. Tax cuts that benefit businesses and the very wealthy will always pump money into the stock exchange. Real growth appears to be happening, with unemployment at its lowest levels. Consumer confidence is high and there are some signs that we are running out of workers for our firms. So, what is the problem with Trump?

President Trump is a horrible judge of character and he picks the wrong people to work in his administration. With bad people in powerful positions, he’s doing more harm than good. The Brett Kavanaugh caper shows the lack of thoroughness of FBI vetting and partisan blindness of those in Congress, especially those on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Remember, Trump didn’t pick Kavanaugh. He jobbed that out to the Federalist Society. They have 70,000 conservative members and, quite frankly, the society is the NRA of judges.

Trump and his offspring are arguing that women have weaponized accusations against men for some dark and devious goal. Donald and Don Jr. are clearly demonstrating their disrespect for women, while pushing a false narrative that if you let women tell their story good people will not want to participate in the business of government. Wouldn’t that mean that appointing more women would be a better bet for America? This promotion of male privilege only serves to anger thinking women. You’ve been warned, Trumps.

Once Brett Kavanaugh claimed that his confirmation problem was some deep state conspiracy and payback from the Clintons, he lost any support I might have objectively given him. He showed that he thinks like a politician and not a judge. His anger under oath is being mocked because he portrayed himself as a victim. Is he a target of Democrat strategy or the truth? It’s a little of both, and he didn’t handle either very well.

Chris Wray, FBI Director

The President said that Brett Kavanaugh may have had a drinking problem when he was younger, even though Kavanaugh denied that under oath. It’s bad when your sponsor changes what you said and makes things worse, but that is the Donald’s biggest flaw as a person. He can’t just shut up and let things naturally progress. He believes that if he keeps talking everyone will agree with him. In fact, the more he reveals, the less credible he becomes.

Some have said that Kavanaugh was a sloppy drunk. Some have said that when he drank too much he became belligerent. His testimony demonstrated his fury and now his temperament is being called into question. Does he have the temperament to serve on the highest court? This is the same question we had about Trump and the presidency. Gee, how did that work out?

If this was a murder, an investigation wouldn’t be limited to one week. We all know that if the FBI comes up with the wrong answer for Trump, he will continue to put them down and challenge their veracity. If the FBI comes in with a “nothing to see here” review of Kavanaugh, not only will he be appointed to the Supreme Court, but Democrats will believe that Trump and White House lawyer Don McGahn scrubbed the report to get their man in.

Now we see a New York Times article that says that Brett Kavanaugh was questioned in the matter of a barroom fight in New Haven when he was at Yale in 1985. The record allegedly shows that young Brett threw ice at another man’s face during the melee. This public document points to the question of temperament and brings up the question, is it the drinking or the basic personality of the person that we should examine under the microscope?

And finally, when Kavanaugh said the words, “What comes around, goes around,” he dealt a card that disqualified him for a place on the Supreme Court. The pure meaning of the expression is, if someone treats other people badly then he or she will eventually be treated badly by someone else. I am concerned that his role on the Supreme Court will become that “someone else” who will use his decisions to get back at Democrats, or worse, anyone who challenges him. If Kavanaugh survives this week and gets voted onto the court, we are less a democracy and the #MeToo movement will explode.
