    U.S. Politics- SCOTUS 2: The Election Strikes Back

    We will never know because Trump wants no one there but Putin and his translator.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: The Prequel

    This is going to be interesting. Joss Wedon returning to TV with a new show with HBO, a sci fi epic called The Nevers.

    This indictment has so much information in it. Well worth the read if you're interested how the Russians did what they did. More indictments will come. ETA:

    Oh this is going to get interesting. Think I'm going to have to read the full indictment now. ETA: full indictment is at this link.

    For those who can't watch.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    This Peter Strzok hearing is nuts. House Republicans are trying to hold him in criminal contempt for not answering questions on an ongoing criminal and counter-intelligence investigation, the very thing they have destroyed Comey for. I think Strzok has held up well and has fired back where appropriate.

    The numbers were 60k - 199k. We're assuming it's at the high end and that the debt was entirely his. If it's related to Nationals tickets that he was splitting with another, and the number was towards the bottom end of the debt, it's not that hard to see. It's worth investigating, but I'd get the answers before all the insinuations.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    Right. But we're talking about SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh, not the finances of the Trump Administration. For the latter, I very much agree. For the former, I'm fine with digging into it but there are some aspects of it which just aren't news worthy to the extent it's being covered.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    Sure but I doubt this is one of those situations since Kavanaugh has been bred for this role by the conservative establishment. I'm fine with looking into the finances to see if there is anything there but front page stories about him going into debt to buy Nationals tickets just doesn't do shit for me. I'm much more interested in his jurisprudence and his speeches that suggest future decisions.

    I could care less about his finances. I wish they'd focus on his speeches and rulings. That's what really matters.

    Benczkowski was confirmed today to head of the DOJ Criminal Division. Unreal.

    Give credit to Anderson, he played really well after the 2nd set.

    His buddy Tom Cotton is backing it up.

    No. More than that. Republicans are living in a system where they chose the judges because they are partisan.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    This is a huge deal. Trump just ordered that all Administrative Law Judges are political appointees and can be fired for whatever they want. This includes immigration judges.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    Yup. There needs to be term limits on justices, like 18 years. Lifetime appointments is and will continue to be ridiculous when there is no need for bi-partisan support.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    To be fair to Kavanaugh, the paper was about Congress passing a law. Congress hasn't passed that law so therefore he should interpret the constitution to say the President isn't exempted.

    Football: Jules Rimet Still Gleaming

    Yup but reality is that smaller clubs hardly ever rise. The rich get richer and the smaller clubs try to stay afloat by developing young talent. The only real way a smaller club rises is a confluence of factors including luck like with Leicester or a rich oligarch/oil guy buys them and sinks a shitload of money into the club.

    That conservative reading of the constitution and the law is the only way to read the law and Dems should perfectly fine when they lose their rights (socially, economically, privately). Obviously.

    Club. Also, looks like Real Madrid is confirming Ronaldo to Juventus. Crazy.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    How is it manufactured outrage when all three of them are young, further right than almost everyone on the court and have a documented history of being against the fundamental issues that Democrats believe in? Gone are the days when you needed to nominate a more moderate judge to get 60 votes in the Senate. Now it's all about young, hyper partisan judges who can be passed with 51 votes.

    Arsenal just announced Lucas Torreira signing. I'm really excited. A true defensive midfielder who's only 23. I hope he plays.
  23. Gotta hand it to the DOJ. At least they're keeping us safe.
  24. They won't reflect on the hatred but dig in even further to the right. The only way to change anything is to vote.
