The Kavanocalypse | Episode 163 (October 11, 2018)


#hostgator…NO THANKS – Worst company ever. First of all, I cancelled and switched. Come to find out after cancelling, they charged my account for 3 YEARS as if I was still using them. I am so displeased and would never recommend this horrible company to anyone. Save yourself a lot of time and money and find someone else. Emily


In this episode we’ll discuss the moment in history that will forever be remembered as ‘The Kavanocalypse,’ the day Brett Beer Boofing Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court to the chagrin of most Americans. Specifically, we’ll talk about the fallout from his confirmation; Trump’s pathetic apology to Kavanaugh, backlash against Susan Collins, Mitch McConnell’s lies and hypocrisy, the right’s preemptive #RoeVWadeIsOverParty celebrations, and the GOP’s demonization of peaceful protesters opposed to Kavanaugh’s nomination. Additionally we’ll talk about Bernie Sanders’ new corporate target, net neutrality in California, and a terrifying new report from the IPCC on climate change. Enjoy the show!

    You fucking losers have no proof of cavanaugh's guilt OR innocence and are more than happy to ruin his life and career. There is ample evidence backing the notion that Ford was in FACT lying about Cavanaugh's presence or guilt. "We believe all victims!" You're an evil person! The fbi isn't meant to investigate non federal crimes! Ben Shapiro being pro war has nothing to do with pro life when a soldier is more than capable of defending their right to life and a fucking unborn infant isn't. Ocasio-Cortez is a fucking idiot who can't answer even the most basic of economic inquiries and you are happy to support all this. I pray that the republican party finally has enough and starts feeding pieces of shit like you the exact shit you have been imposing on these senators and pundits. How can you in good conscience back up people obviously engaging in mob behaviour. I wish you nothing but the worst.

    I am becoming so tired with this Kavanaugh nonsense. #MeToo might've started out with honourable intentions doing important work, but it has since devolved into a partisan tool and a witch hunt. Look at what happened to Aziz Ansari. Look at how Rose McGowan responded to allegations against Asia Argento. Look at the response the movement had to Henry Cavill's comments not too long ago. What impression does that give the average straight guy? Men are becoming afraid to persue the opposite sex. How is that not a problem? One false posts should not entirely invalidate the concern. Even if only a small minority of allegations are proven untrue, our current cultural and political climate dictates all allegations receive massive amounts of attention (which they should) and also that these allegations should not be forgotten.

    Both Dr. Ford AND Brett Kavanaugh have been victimized by this situation. Dr. Ford had her trust betrayed by Diane Finestein likely for political gain and was subject to intense ridicule and Kavanaugh has had his name dragged through the mud, was denied the right of being presumed innocent, and has had his family subject to potentially irreversible trauma. People started shouting he was a rapist the minute the allegations broke, and the narrative still hasn't changed despite the fact that NO ONE can corroborate Dr. Ford's story. Because of all this, nobody will be able to look at him the same way ever again. Because of all this, he had to explain to his young children what roofies and gangbangs were, and they'll likely never stopped being asked about their father. How does that not bother you? This entire situation reeked of slimy democratic party politics. I really do hope we get that red wall. The democrats deserve it for what they did.

    Where was the evidence of this supposed attempted rape? Hm? You know what's stupid is women lying about rape.
    It makes it that much harder for actual rape victims to get the help they need.

    BRAVO once again on the truth you eliminate over the Kavanaugh Kalamity – it continues to boggle the mind even though it shouldn't because nothing has changed.

    read conservative tree house website for real news. the Honduras migrant caravan is like Europe migrant crisis. NGOs are terrorists, dems kill medicare by overcrowded system with illegals,but shameless give themselves exemptions/subsides to avoid negatives. this is failure of democracy. Paul Ryan=closet dem whom want to kill medicare+omnibus for foreign interest

    No charges because there wasn't any fucking evidence brought forward whatsofuckingever. Brett already went through more than one fbi investigation. You're honestly the dumbest, most unprofessional "reporter" on this site. Its not credible by saying he raped her without knowing even the year. Or the date. Or the week. Or the house. Or the party.

    Trump shouldnt apologise to either of them. Not just brett Kavanaughs life was ruined, idiot. The lives of his wife, and two daughters. Four lives ruined by the least credible allegation ive ever fucking seen. Its unbeleivable that you believe this. Im glad you dont make the laws, because innocents would be in jail with no evidence.

    Ya know, this guy is just as transparent as any politician, a person could write his script for him. He doesn't give a damn about the truth. Ohh my! Poor Blasey Ford, she is just such a Victim! I am not a judge K supporter, nor am I especially fond of trump. What is that moron doing selling 100 billion ( that's billion not million) dollars worth of war machinery to Suadi Arabia? How well does he think that's going to work out? How many thousand women and children are going to die in Yemen because of this nasty little deal that he is so stinking proud of? What an asshole. But this guy isn't much better. He's totally happy to be deceitful and one sided if it furthers his agenda.

    I do believe that kavenaugh sexually assaulted Mrs. Ford.I also believe that donald trump among is other issues ,is also a sexual predator. Just from the things he said on that tape and his actions and behavior with women.And trump would never apologize to a woman,that would be unthinkable to him.

    Btw look at how trump treats Elizabeth Warren,calling her Pocahontas. He told a crowd at one of his rally's that he would pay a million dollars to a charity of her choice if she got her DNA tested and proved she had American Indian heritage. Well she did and told trump her charity,but trump claims he never said he would make the donation.

    trump is a pathological liar, a conman,a sociopath,a narcissist,an ego maniac and probably a few other things i did not add. He has no honor nor integrity.
    And yet this is our president…

    I feel so bad for Dr Ford. And she was the quintessential "Perfect Victim" but she still was defamed and demonized. This is why female victims particularly don't come forward. The hostile treatment as liars is reserved for only female victims. It's called DARVO. And it causes PTSD according to the research.

    Bribery is when a politician is paid to vote a certain way – like the Koch brothers paying her to vote in their interest – people donating money to elect a new candidate because the incumbent is in the pocket of corporations – that is democracy.

    Oh the irony of this video. Is there going to be a side that regrets the kavanaugh shit, but it not the side your talking about. Have fun in the mid terms, iI have a feeling it going to be a very bad week for you ; )

    I still find it hilarious how unethical you are with this whole kavanugh thing, you honestly have no shame.

    We the people will never ever trust Kavanaugh and now faith in "supreme" court rulings is GONE. Kavanaugh is a tool of the powerful and has a very dark past with the Bush administration. (btw pretender Susan Collins, we ARE in a very sad place and you are one of the reasons.) Also, USA is the No. 1 propagator of war on the planet which shows exactly how "pro-life" we are.

    The legacy admissions policies of elite universities is one means by which the few impose their will upon the many. Kavanaugh is a drunkard child of the elite who never would have gone anywhere had it not been for the means of control already established by the elite crooks. Kavanaugh exposes how powerful some cheats by elites to maintain power are and people should be outraged about this special treatment these few have bought. Elites are the best cheaters, not the best people or leaders.
