Senate Democrats: Kavanaugh's classmate must testify

Source: The Hill

Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and other top Democrats in the Senate are demanding that a classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testify at a high-stakes hearing set for Monday.

Democrats said Mark Judge, who was allegedly in the room when Christine Blasey Ford says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party in the early 1980s, needs to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee and provide testimony.

Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Monday announced that the panel would hold a public hearing with Kavanaugh and Ford to discuss the allegations.

ďLetís not rush the hearings,Ē Schumer said Tuesday on the Senate floor. ďLetís not repeat the mistake made in the Anita Hill hearings. Letís call the relevant witnesses, not just the two selected by Chairman Grassley who did not want to call the hearings to begin with.Ē

2. Schumer's going to FORCE him to testify?

Or is this just a suggestion/demand from Schumer to Grassley?

3. Too bad for Donnie he doesn't have his bag-man "Mike The K*ke" anymore ...

(I'm imagining a nickname f***face would come up with, no offense intended!)

I could see him ordering MC to pay off this clown to take the fall, get up and say it was really him, she was drunk, she's 'mixed up' on who it actually was ... after all this guys already written the book on his debauchery, posted all kinds of pics of hot young women on his instragram and such ... he's already compromised, and it's past the SoL ... so ... what a perfect 'fall guy' situation.

Esp. if Dems get him up there to testify, can you imagine the egg on Dem's faces if he got up before the Senate ... and publicly took the blame? OMG ... the shitshow that would come after!??

It's really TOO perfect, ergo I fully think Donnie would DEFINITELY attempt that move ... if he still had Cohen around to run interference.

6. Mark Judge.


(Judge left, Kavanaugh right)

Judge wrote the book "Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk," where he details his experiences of extensive drinking while attending Georgetown Preparatory School. Judge writes that he is "shocked" about what he got away with in high school -- recalling beach parties that hundreds of people would attend. At another point he describes his high school as "positively swimming in alcohol." Judge also references a "Bart O'Kavanaugh," who he writes vomited in someone's car. It has not been confirmed whether this is a reference to Kavanaugh.


Separate from his book, Judge -- in a 2013 piece for The Daily Caller -- says of former President Barack Obama that he "doesn't have just a streak of the feminine in him; he seems to be a woman, and a feminist one at that, with a streak of man in him." In the same Daily Caller article, he compares Michelle Obama with Laura Bush, writing: "With her love of violent movies, her fixation on fitness and death glare that appears when she doesn't like what she's hearing, Michelle is actually more man than her husband. Oh for the days when president George W. Bush gave his wife Laura a loving but firm pat on the backside in public. The man knew who was boss."


"Of course, a man must be able to read a woman's signals, and it's a good thing that feminism is teaching young men that no means no and yes means yes. But there's also that ambiguous middle ground, where the woman seems interested and indicates, whether verbally or not, that the man needs to prove himself to her. And if that man is any kind of man, he'll allow himself to feel the awesome power, the wonderful beauty, of uncontrollable male passion," he wrote.


In [his] yearbook, Judge's page included the quote: "Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs".

10. He'll lie under oath.

He is a GOP white, privileged man so he will lie like his pal Kavanaugh.

11. Yep. But lies upon lies upon lies can often lead to the truth.

I think we will benefit from his testimony even if he is lying most of the time. It will likely be obvious to most sane people.

14. Hard Case Crime: the Beauty of Male Passion

Mark Judge

Todayís social justice warriors donít like a sexy damsel in distress.

(Snip)

Every man whoís fit to live has his own stories about the time, like a Hard Case character, he ducked the police, got in over his head with money, or abandoned himself in pursuit of love or sex. Weíve all climbed up windowsills, driven all night, and gotten into fights over a girl. Of course, a man must be able to read a womanís signals, and itís a good thing that feminism is teaching young men that no means no and yes means yes. But thereís also that ambiguous middle ground, where the woman seems interested and indicates, whether verbally or not, that the man needs to prove himself to her. And if that man is any kind of man, heíll allow himself to feel the awesome power, the wonderful beauty, of uncontrollable male passion.

Hard Case Crime, and pulp fiction in general, is not about controlling and hurting women, although thereís some of that. Itís an expression of authentic male passion, of sweaty sexiness, in a world of pajama boys, government-mandated health food, and reactionary conservative blowhards.
