    U.S. Senator Susan Collins gave an eloquent speech about the events surrounding the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    U.S. Senator Collins revealed a lot of hope and faith in Brett Kavanaugh's promises to her during their 3 hour phone conversations and Trump's scam FBI investigation that 4 people had severe cases of amnesia when they testified that they didn't have a clue about the Dr Ford incident and the truth is the FBI investigation was nothing more then a cruel farce.

    U.S. Senator Collins conclusion was to believe Brett Kavanaugh's testimony and so must have believed that Dr Ford was lying when in truth millions of Americans believed Dr. Ford and one can only be shocked about the total gullibility of this U.S. Senator.

    One could only feel disgust when Trump made fun of Dr Ford and his maniacal followers laughed hilariously along with Trump.

    Dr. Ford remembered that the males sexually assaulting here were laughing about it.

    Since Republicans think sexual assault is funny and it is A-OK America's women must impress upon these callous cruel males exactly how women feel about sexual assaulters by supporting laws that will allow every female assaulted to decide if she would want to have her sexual assaulter castrated.

    The Republicans once again got their 5 Supreme Stooges that will do the bidding of those Capitalist, Corporatist Robber Barons at the expense of the American people.

    Those 5 Supreme Stooges have already destroyed our Republic with their Citizens United decision and by destroying the voting rights act and these rotten decisions have turned our Republic into a corrupt Oligarchy and there is no doubt these 5 Supreme Stooges have committed treason.

    There was no proof that Kavanaugh committed the crime Dr Ford claims. Just her saying it happened is not enough. She did sound somewhat believable but that is not enough. There has to be proof. What she said could very well be true but there was zero evidence to support her claim. It was sad to see her come before the committee when she could have been allowed to tell her story in private and her identity be kept private. The letter was released without her permission which she stated she Never gave. Her life is now turned upside down because of this. Who's to blame for that? Diane Feinstein the other representative gave the letter to? She's owed an apology from someone on the Democratic side.

    B.S. Like I've said so many times, this "system" here is super corrupt ; there never has been an proper vetting for anyone in high functions; put people like that on lie detectors all the time. Especially the "evangelicals" always lie, because they can be forgiven by the pastor; hand on the "bible" means nothing in these times, ask Trump about his oath.

    Do you believe Kavanaugh lied during his confirmation hearing? Did he lie about devil"s triangle or boofing or an alumni to Renate? Two of Judge Kavanaugh’s classmates say the mentions of Renate were part of the football players’ unsubstantiated boasting about their conquests. When Renate herself spoke she didn't confirm Kavanaugh's explanation for Renate Alumni where he said it was an expresion of affection and respect. She said:

    “I don’t know what ‘Renate Alumnus’ actually means. I can’t begin to comprehend what goes through the minds of 17-year-old boys who write such things, but the insinuation is horrible, hurtful and simply untrue. I pray their daughters are never treated this way. I will have no further comment.”

    She didn't say what and endearing expression of affection Kavanaugh expressed toward her. No she said:

    " the insinuation is horrible".

    There were a lot of insinuations and allegations that were glossed over and purposely omitted from an investigation into Kavanaugh's background. I think a thorough investigation would have vindicated Ford and sent Disgraced Kavanaugh to jail.

    Trump's interview with Lesley Stahl was very revealing, especially the portion related to Brett Kavanaugh:

    But Trump argued he wasn't really mocking her.

    'I didn't really make fun of her,' he said.

    'Well, they were laughing,' Stahl said of the crowd at the rally.

    'What I said the person that we're talking about didn't know the year, the time, the place,' Trump said.

    'Do you think you treated her with respect?,' Stahl asked.

    'I think so, yeah. I did,' he said.

    Stahl pressed the president: 'But you seem to be saying that she lied.'

    'You know what? I'm not gonna get into it because we won. It doesn't matter. We won,' the president said.

    Kavanaugh denied the allegations and Trump mocked Ford's testimony on her accusation before the Senate Judiciary Committee in what he called his 'famous Mississippi speech.'

    'Had I not made that speech, we would not have won,' the president told '60 Minutes.' 'I was just saying she didn't seem to know anything.'

    His comments about Russia were also a little, shall we say, astonishing:

    'Do you really think I'd call Russia to help me with an election? Give me a break. They wouldn't be able to help me at all. Call Russia. It's so ridiculous,' the president said.

    He also conceded, when asked, that Putin is 'probably' involved in political assassinations.

    'Probably he is, yeah. Probably,' Trump said.

    British officials claim Russian militants were dispatched to the United Kingdom to kill Sergei Skripal, a former Russian spy who had given information to British intelligence, charges Moscow has denied.

    Blanket admission of guilt when Trump said:

    '"You know what? I'm not gonna get into it because we won. It doesn't matter. We won,' the president said".

    The Washington Post analysis of the interview is VERY interesting to read:
