If MB gets classified as a gang I'm supporting it and will plan bank robberies and ****.

Instead of all the passionate conjecture about FBI investigations, why don't we just wait and see how it advances? Rostasi is the only poster who has contributed some detail that has the ring of first-hand truth to it. He is understandably coy about saying how he knows this. My guess: the FBI checked him out before he was seconded to work for MI5 alongside James Bond.

Those Thursday hearings:-

They're not a trial, many people have said, they are Kavanaugh's job interview. If that's the case, Kavanaugh failed spectacularly by:-

i) raising the irrelevant topic of his daughter's prayers and then weeping about them
ii) claiming to be exhonorated by witnesses who don't remember. It's a glaring failure in a judge if he can't grasp that there is a distinction between "That person doesn't remember" and "That event didn't happen."
iii) evading and ultimately declining to answer certain questions.
iv) ranting about a partisan conspiracy dating back to the Clinton era
v) calling the commitee process "a circus"

In trying to defend his suitability for the Supreme Court he actually exposed just how unsuitable he is. If this was indeed a job interview I wouldn't give the job to someone who was by turns maudline, self-pitying, partisan and belligerent , I'd give the job to a candidate who was polite, cooperative and respectful throughout: Dr. Ford.

Indeed. If nothing else, the next week is going to allow people to go back and watch his "performance" again. In hindsight it was worse than seeing it in real time.

This is priceless (sorry if it's already been posted)

^ I thought of this post this morning when I read the following in the autobiog of a guy called Jeremy Bowen, who worked as a BBC war correspondent for many years:-

Quote:
A traditional British newsroom follows a terrible arithmatic. Generally speaking, the furthur away from London, and the poorer the people, the more deaths it takes to qualify as a big story. In 1991 a cyclone hit Bangladesh. The first reports said that around 10,000 people had been killed. I was put on standby to go, in case it turned out that more people were dead. By the afternoon the reported toll was over 50,000, but that was still not enough. A day or two later Bangladeshi authorities were saying that more than 100,000 had died. Within hours, I was on a plane for Bangladesh. Six figures had done the trick.

I'm down, as long as our gang colors are this gay blue background.

Bruh, we're an internet crime syndicate. We'll use an ever changing series of meme tattoos.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/georgetow...anaugh-hearing

An anti-Trump professor at Georgetown University is taking heat for a tweet saying white Republican senators who were at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's hearing Friday should be castrated and endure a miserable death.

Honest to **** - how does a professor at Georgetown actually come to believe that she is not “entitled” as all ****?

Sure chop off there nuts but she’s going to be ****ing next in her fancy ****ing office living a bourgeois life while doing ****ing nothing

It’s like hello bitch that same hatred is coming for youuuuuuuu
