    hard to take these protestors seriously when they are an actual, living meme yelling "Shame!  Shame!"

    Was reading the comments below it, saw the one that said "Shaka .... When the walls fell".  Had to look that one up, didn't know it was a STNG reference, which yielded this interesting Jeopardy moment from last year:

    Welp. I was wrong on Kavanaugh. The Democrats really blew this by trying to think they had some golden nugget to torpedo the nomination instead of doing the right thing and sharing the information they received with the Republicans on the committee at the outset.

    O-trap et.al. ………….take care:

     

     Writing in the Wall Street Journal, a much honored journalist, Asra Q. Nomani published an article in the Wall Street Journal yesterday laying out how "Saturday's protests and unlawful disruptions were brought to us by a well-funded network."

    I am a liberal feminist whose views on abortion and same-sex marriage align with the Democratic Party's.  Yet while most demonstrators are not paid for their efforts, the protests at the Capitol Saturday, and the ones that have included stalking lawmakers inside and outside their offices, are organized by groups of which Mr. Soros is an important patron.

    I started following the money for the "resistance" when it was born, hours after Election Day 2016.  I have organized my findings in a spreadsheet I have made public.  At least 50 of the largest organizations that participated as "partners" in the Jan. 21, 2017, Women's March had received grants from Mr. Soros's Open Society Foundations or similar funds in the "House of Soros," as his philanthropic empire was once called internally.  The number of Soros-backed partners has grown to at least 80.  @AsraNomani/resistance-endkavanaugh-7b577f17e41d?mod=article_inline" style="color:blue; text-decoration:underline" target="_blank">At least 20 of the largest groups that led the Saturday anti-Kavanaugh protests have been Open Society grantees. 

    On Saturday I also studied the fine print on the signs as protesters waved them defiantly at the Capitol and the high court.  They came from a familiar list of Democratic interest groups that have received millions from Mr. Soros: the American Civil Liberties Union, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the Center for Popular Democracy, Human Rights Campaign and on and on.  MoveOn.org, a Democratic organizing and lobbying group founded with Soros money, sent its army of partisan followers regular missives that led them to a Google form to ask for train tickets and places to stay. ...

    The agitators even have help with their handmade signs.  Across the street from the Supreme Court, a woman uses supplies provided by UltraViolet Action to write, in Spanish: "No more rapists in power."

    Back on the Capitol lawn, people from Megaphone Strategies, a public-relations firm founded by former Obama adviser Van Jones, manage interview requests from USA Today and other news outlets. Women's March lieutenants exchange T-shirts for completed "Legal Support Sheets" with information in case of arrest.

    Suddenly everyone stands to walk in unison to the Capitol steps.  When they arrive, the few Capitol Police officers on the scene silently watch them.  The protesters walk up the stairs – though they don't "storm" them, as the leaders have claimed.  There are no barricades, no phalanx of armed police.

    Rethink Media created a "social media strategy sheet" back in August for anti-Kavanaugh protesters.  One talking point: "Kavanaugh was hand-picked by dark money groups and their billionaire backers."  Rethink Media is itself a Soros grantee, and Saturday's protests and unlawful disruptions were part of a well-funded, orchestrated network that books buses, hotel rooms and churches for such agitation. ...

    MoveOn.org announced that its call the night after Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation would feature Ana Maria Archila, the Colombia-born sexual-assault victim who cornered Sen. Jeff Flake in a Senate elevator last month and screamed "Look at me!" She is co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy.  Her salary was listed as $156,333, with a bonus of $21,378, in a recent Internal Revenue Service 990 form.

    Not a good week for Mikey

     

    • Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said Thursday he has referred attorney Michael Avenatti and client Julie Swetnick -- who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during confirmation proceedings -- for criminal investigation regarding a potential “conspiracy” to provide false statements to Congress and obstruct its investigation.

    No, it's not a good week for him.  He better have his ducks in a row or it looks like he's going to have to pay the piper.  The court of TMZ is one thing.  A US attorney is another.
