    Call me crazy, but I think having 17 year-olds worry that any sexual assault they commit now might follow them around for the rest of their lives would be a GREAT thing

    MEMO REVEALS BEN CARSON NOW UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR ETHICS VIOLATIONS

    Source: TPL News

    Mr. Carson enlisted his son to help organize a “listening tour” in Baltimore. Per The Washington Post, Carson had been warned by department lawyers last summer that doing so was to risk violating federal ethics rules. The same report indicates that “…career officials and political appointees raised concerns days before the visit that Carson’s son, local businessman Ben Carson Jr., and daughter-in-law were inviting people with whom they potentially had business dealings, the documents show.”

    Ben Carson’s son put people he’d invited in touch with his father’s deputies. He also joined in with agency staff on official conference calls about the listening tour. He went so far as to copy his wife on related email exchanges.

    The Washington Post was able to obtain, via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, a copy of a 2-page memo written by Linda M. Cruciani, HUD’s deputy general counsel for operations, in which she expresses her concerns. He memo reads, in part, “I expressed my concern that this gave the appearance that the Secretary may be using his position for his son’s private gain.” The memo also details conference calls and meetings that Linda Cruciani and others had with Carson, his son, and other senior HUD officials in effort to urge Ben Carson not to allow his son to be involved in the “listening tour.”

    In addition to his son, Carson’s wife, Candy Carson, attended official meetings. So Ben Carson has involved his wife, his son, and his daughter-in-law in otherwise official HUD business.

    Alaska Natives Press Lisa Murkowski To Reject Brett Kavanaugh

    https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5...b04d32ebfd1225

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) was already under pressure from Alaska Natives to oppose Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    It just got more serious.

    The Alaska Federation of Natives ― a massive statewide Native-American organization that represents more than 20 percent of the state’s entire population ― went from taking no official stance on Kavanaugh to announcing its opposition on Sept. 12.

    “The questions and colloquies that came out of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate Judiciary hearings last week have necessitated us taking a position,” the group said in a recent statement. “AFN joins our colleagues and friends across Indian country in strongly opposing Judge Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court because of, among other things, his views on the rights of Native peoples.”

    Now we hear that Ford is stonewalling any appearance in front of the committee. She's stalling for time. It's all a charade. She's got an agenda. And Feinstein is complicit in this farce.

    The only group of people I've ever seen Trump truly show empathy for is men accused of assault.


    empathy :the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

    identification : psychological orientation of the self in regard to something (such as a person or group) with a resulting feeling of close emotional association

    This was identification, not empathy. In simple words, he's just feeling sorry for himself.

    She also said:

    Feinstein on Ford: I believe that she is credible..what we wanted was investigation carried out to look at the facts before there was a hearing..I hope people will let her be and her lawyers will let her come back and straighten this out.


    https://twitter.com/ChadPergram/stat...76130399313925

    So, is it an unreasonable statement that she believes a witness is credible, but that she can't say everything is truthful? Who can say more than that about anyone, unless they have direct knowledge of the facts involved? Yes, she has an agenda. She is lobbying for an official investigation to more fairly and completely present the facts, an approach with which you may be unfamiliar. Thanks for another useless post.

    Mark Judge refusing to testify on behalf of Brett Kavanaugh means one of two things:

    (1) he knows he will perjure himself and say he saw nothing
    (2) or he will have to say that he saw his friend sexually assault a 15 year old

    If NOTHING happened, he would testify willingly

    Committee vote cancelled. And Sen Hirono is en fuego. I hecking LOVE her.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/thehill...-step-up%3famp

    Guess who's perpetuating all these kinds of actions?" Hirono said, referencing the alleged assault. "It's the men in this country. And I just want to say to the men in this country, just shut up and step up."

    "Do the right thing," she said, pausing before adding, "for a change."

    "You can see I'm a little bit upset by this, the unfairness of it," Hirono, who is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is presiding over Kavanaugh's hearings, said.
    Preach.
