Thursday is shaping up to be the Trump presidency’s “Gunfight at O.K. Corral.”

That day, the fates of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and much else, may be decided.

The New York Times report that Rosenstein, sarcastically or seriously in May 2017, talked of wearing a wire into the Oval Office to entrap the president, suggests that his survival into the new year is improbable.

Whether Thursday is the day President Donald Trump drops the hammer is unknown.

But if he does, the recapture by Trump of a Justice Department he believes he lost as his term began may be at hand. Comparisons to President Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre may not be overdone.

The Times report that Rosenstein also talked of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump suggests that Sen. Lindsey Graham had more than a small point on “Fox News Sunday”: “There’s a bureaucratic coup going on at the Department of Justice and the FBI, and somebody needs to look at it.”

Indeed, they do. And it is inexplicable that a special prosecutor has not been named. For while the matter assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller, to investigate any Trump collusion with Russia in hacking the emails of the Clinton campaign and DNC, is serious, a far graver matter has gotten far less attention.

To wit, did an anti-Trump cabal inside the Department of Justice and the FBI conspire to block Trump’s election, and having failed, plot to bring down his presidency in a “deep state” coup d’etat?

Rosenstein’s discussion of wearing a wire into the Oval Office lends credence to that charge, but there is much more to it.

The story begins with the hiring by the Clinton campaign, though its law firm cutout, in June 2016, of the dirt-divers of Fusion GPS.

Fusion swiftly hired retired British spy and Trump hater Christopher Steele, who contacted his old sources in the Russian intel community for dirt to help sink a U.S. presidential candidate.

What his Russian friends provided was passed on by Steele to his paymaster at GPS, his contact in the Justice Department, No. 3 man Bruce Ohr, and to the FBI, which was also paying the British spy.

The FBI then used the dirt Steele unearthed, much of it false, to persuade a FISA court to issue a warrant to wiretap Trump aide Carter Page. The warrant was renewed three times, the last with the approval of Trump’s own deputy attorney general, Rosenstein.

Regrettably, Trump, at the request of two allies — the Brits almost surely one of them — has put a hold on his recent decision to declassify all relevant documents inside the Justice Department and FBI.

Yet, as The Wall Street Journal wrote Monday, “As for the allies, sometimes U.S. democratic accountability has to take precedence over the potential embarrassment of British intelligence.”

Thursday’s meeting between Trump and Rosenstein will coincide with the Judiciary Committee’s hearing into the charge by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that, as a 15-year-old, she was sexually assaulted by 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

This weekend brought fresh charges, from a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, Deborah Ramirez, that at a drunken party in their freshman year, Kavanaugh exposed himself.

Kavanaugh has fired off a letter to Sens. Chuck Grassley and Dianne Feinstein, chairman and ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, calling the accusations “smears, pure and simple.”

Kavanaugh continued: “I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last-minute character assassination will not succeed.”

ORDER IT NOW

What is at stake in Thursday’s appearance by Kavanaugh and Ford is huge. A successful defense of his good name could mean Kavanaugh’s swift elevation to the high court, a historic victory for the GOP’s judicial philosophy, and the culmination of a decades-long campaign dating back to the Earl Warren era of the Supreme Court.

As for the judge himself, the issue is not just his behavior as a teenager and university student, but his credibility and honor as a man.

He has asked friends and allies to trust and believe him when he says that he is a victim of a character assassination steeped that is rooted in ideology and lies.

Thus far, no credible individual has come forward to corroborate the charges against him when he was at Georgetown Prep or at Yale. And almost all who knew him testify to his character.

We are often told that the moment we are in has historic significance and will be long remembered. Yet, how many can still recall what the “resister” in the Trump White House or Cabinet wrote in his or her anonymous op-ed in The New York Times?

How Kavanaugh conducts himself Thursday, however, and whether he is elevated to the court, could decide the fate of constitutional conservatism and the Republican Congress in 2018.

Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of a new book, “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made and Broke a President and Divided America Forever.”

    Even a leader of unparalleled integrity and probity would likely be outmatched and outflanked by what we call “the Swamp” and alas, that’s not Mr Trump to begin with. I do believe that Trump is patriotic and wants what’s best for the country but 1) that’s not enough–he also has colossal personal liabilities and issues of character and 2) our nation’s capital is full of people who are neither patriotic nor do they want what’s best for the country.

    in more ways than one

    we all understand the stakes vis-a-vis the Constitution and the serial criminality of that utterly corrupted institution for decades now.

    Yes, having originalists (men and women of integrity who actually honor their sacred oath to their nation, to its people, and to the principles of the rule of law), vs. the ideologues, who would toss the freedoms bequeathed to us – by the struggle of centuries of heroic men and women, willing to kill or die to wrest arbitrary power from the bloody hands of unaccountable tyrants, monarchs and fools, culminating with the Magna Carta…

    .. these ideologues would eagerly betray all of that struggle for human dignity, and toss it all out the window in pursuit of their narrow, identity politics, self-serving agendas. Even to the point of subverting the very Constitution itself to that nefarious end, while betraying the people who exalted them to that esteemed and sacred trust- only to abuse that trust to impose tyranny and arbitrary rule of the few – on the American people once again. The rule of law, the Constitution, and their sacred oaths ~ be damned, as far as these robed scoundrels are concerned.

    It’s hard to overstate the significance of that, and the stakes involved with this confirmation, it’s true.

    But there’s another lesser side-issue here as well.

    For as long as Hollywood has existed, and powerful men in general, women and girls have been exploited and abused sexually.

    Finally, (and perhaps not coincidentally) with the advent of the Trump administration, (and perhaps some powerful women therein), some of these serial predators are being held to account.

    Bill Cosby was recently sentenced to prison time. Something I would have considered impossible only a few years ago, because of his sacrosanct status as a black icon of Americana.

    The only reason that something like that was able to happen, in the land of serial preditor Bill Clinton and ‘it wasn’t rape / rape” Hollywood, was due to the new credibility America is now giving women, who come forward.

    And then right on cue, what do American women do?

    They take up their new empowerment, only to dash it all on the rocks of ideological identity politics, in a crass and flagrant display of rank political McCarthyism, and squalid false testimony .

    Displaying for all the world to see, that these women, given the ear of the nation, will without hesitation, lie, cheat and vindictively smear an innocent man, in order to impose on the country their narrow, ideological agendas. Veracity, honor, truth, integrity, morals ~ all be damned.

    What then, are we to make of the next woman who comes forward with tales of sexual abuse?

    When it seems like the sisterhood, doesn’t give a rat’s ass about whether or not such charges are true, so long as making them advances the great agenda.

    ‘serious’ in the way the guy with the gun pointed at your head and demanding your money is ‘serious’ …. he may be breaking all kinds of laws, but ‘legality’ is not involved in the outcome here …

  10. I’m spreading this information as widely as possible: Christine Ford is on record, claiming that Brett Kavanagh “attacked” her in 1982 and that she immediately called her close friend on her cell phone to tell her about it.

    I just got an interesting letter from an acquaintance with considerable knowledge of cell phone technology. I’ve included a paraphrase here:

    A little research demonstrates that the cell phone technology which Christine Ford fantasizes, didn’t exist when Ford claims to have used it. The first portable cell phone, the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x, was first marketed on 13 March 1984 with a retail price of $3,995 ($10k today).

    Before 1984 cell phones were called “car phones” because they were big, expensive,and had to be installed in cars by federally licensed technicians. The Motorola DynaTAC 6000 cost $9,000, installed in a car trunk with its handset near the driver on the end of a 32-wire cable.The DynaTAC 6000 dominated the market from its release in February of 1983 until March of 1984.

    Before 1983 (Ford called her friend on her cell phone in 1982) your car phone choices drew on pre-cellular technologies, “IMTS” for instance, and the individually FCC licensed car phones that cost more than the car in which they were installed. An example: The TD 1100 (1963 to 1983, about $13,000 with a mandatory $250 annual service agreement)

    I had one of those car phones, in the 70s & 80s.

    They were ‘party-lines’. Anybody who cared to ‘listen-in’ could do so.

    Anyone else remember the antics of frat rats like Brettie? Those of us residing at the university coop got to witness the nearby greek row pledges in action . They would come streaking by in broad daylight performing “elephant ears” i.e. their pockets pulled out and they tiny trunks hanging out their flies. Another time, witnessed several pledges pushing pennies down the concrete walk with their noses. To attract recruits, frats would schedule an appearance of the famed campus coed luminary, BJ Carol, an exhibitionist of very rare virtuosity. Despite the pleadings of St. Pat, it is very difficult to summon a lot of sympathy for a Georgetown preppie, Yale frat rat, Bush family toadie shyster.

  15. Schumer framed the issues against Kavanaugh at the outset: it was all about Roe v Wade.

    imo that was a diversion, as is the Ford business, of course.

    Kavanaugh’s real offenses against the American people and Republic are far more serious: he stood by and said nothing while George Bush engaged in an illegal and ruinous war in Iraq.

    Is there any offense more serious than taking a nation to war based on lies (as FDR did, and as Wilson was sexually blackmailed to do)?

    I wouldn’t read too much into that.

    Cosby gained the undying hatred of the PC-SJW crowd for his NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) speech (May 2014) where he told blacks that they were responsible for most of their own failure and to do something about it.

    I see your point about the advantage of having california’s far-left white-hating US Senators be lower in seniority.

    But we shouldn’t overstate the case. No matter what the seniority, CA’s Senators will actively work to destroy our culture, Liberty, and sovereignty, and they’ll always have a vote in the full senate on legislation, conviction on articles of impeachment, and judicial and Cabinet nominations.

    Mainly for the reason you stated, I’m considering voting for De Leon over Feinstein. But that’s a bitter pill to swallow.

    (Voting for Feinstein is, of course, not an option. I’d write someone in, if I could, but as an Angeleno you know that our overlords don’t allow that anymore in the general election.)

    Calling the accuser a “slut” is a distraction at best and counterproductive at worst. We should concentrate on what we can prove: The woman is almost certainly a liar.

    Why is her memory so conveniently bad about the place and date of the alleged attack, and how she got home afterward? And why did she demand a “full investigation” by the FBI before she gave her testimony? If the accuser is telling the truth (or even believes she’s telling the truth), why doesn’t she simply tell what she knows? It appears that she is being very careful to avoid saying anything that can be disproven.

    no one that I know of is calling her a “slut’, in the sense that she’s sexually wanton.

    what we (I) am calling her, is an intellectual whore.

    Which is much, much worse than being a sexually loose woman/slut. (arguably a good thing in the right context ; )

    An intellectual whore sells their soul, not their body. They put their integrity on the line, and then peddle it to the highest bidder, or simply give it away, if they believe that by doing so they can destroy the reputation and prospects of another person who they simply do not personally approve of.

    If the lying cunt were saying what S2C said in an above comment, that the man isn’t qualified to serve due to character issues based on observable facts (support for the Iraq war), then that would be honorable, if not down right noble.

    But instead, what this lying skank is doing, is prostituting her soul, for petty reasons of political disagreement, (if not for her 30 shekels, which if so, is really just as bad).

    But she’s not alone. Every single POS who goes on the record as demanding that ‘she must be believed!, because she’s a woman!, and so her testimony is inviolate and indisputable!

    ~ because she’s a liberal female serving their agenda, rather than one of Bill Clinton’s myriad rape victims…

    betrays the corruption of their own sordid and grubby souls.

    Truth is truth. Lies are lies. And if there was a shred of credibility to this woman’s claims, they would have passed the ‘straight face test’. But they don’t, do they? Instead they reek of dirty tricks and ‘last minute’ underhanded duplicity and treachery.

    I would never compare a common slut with a disgraceful lying skank of that order.

    A common slut is a thousand times more noble and virtuous than a filthy, rotten, privileged, educated, lying skank, willing to put her gaping gash of lacking principles open wide, for all the world to gasp at.

    Some of them are ugly as a rotten pit of maggot infested dead flesh, at least on the inside, even it they’re comely enough on the outside.

    What kind of shitty house it was that it did not have a bathroom on the ground floor.
    And if there was a bathroom on the ground floor, why she did not use that one instead of going to the upper floor.
    If you are guest in the house you usually have to ask if you want to use bathroom on upper floor.
    Also is missing (and that is the most important thing) how it happened for her to be there.
    She was obviously odd girl out. And so who invited her, or told her about the party.
    In my opinion she is simply coached dirty filthy liar.

  51. Anyone who uses quotes from NYT or Zerohedge looses my attention . One is the tribe the other pretends to not be but is.. DITCH ZH folks . .Tyler Durdenstein is NOT your friend. That being said.. This is all about getting a Jewish majority supreme court … then you can kiss your guns goodbye and its hello Gaza 2.0

  52. Instead of first expressing my complete agreement with the content of your posts on this thread, I am going to go right to my nit pick:

    Your conception of an intellectual whore and its application to Mx. Ford and her ilk.

    First, you are entitled to conceive and define a topic as you wish, but, let me challenge your conception. Is not a whore a whore? A whore is a whore and she will spread her legs for the Honky, the Hebrew, and the Harlemite if they can pay the access fee. Put another way, as long as a niggah has the Benjamins, he be in.

    Thus, an intellectual whore, should, in my view, care not about the ideas, the ideology, or the message she is paid to promote. She should be, ceteris paribus, equally happy to cheer for race realism as she is spreading the gospel of miscegenation. She should, to borrow from Josey Wales, be able to sing with equal fervor the Battle Hymn of the Republic and Dixie ( btw, I fucking love that scene).

    Rurik, I submit that Professor Ford, Senator Feinstein, et al, would have a great deal of difficulty singing Dixie with any where near the same fervor they would sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic. I would even include a power driven Hillary in that she would truly never abandon her progressive mindset.

    The above should not be confused with double standards and hypocrisy. Of course, fourth wave feminists and the #metoo mafia, specifically, and progressives, generally, will excuse a slick Willie or a Keith Ellison or the hippo from Hyannis. They may even refer to the “survivors,” in Clinton’s case as trailer park trash.

    This does not mean that there are no intellectual whores as you define the term. There are. Its just that I think you are discounting the ideological core of the likes of Ford, Gloria Allred, Rachel Maddow, Senator Harris, the feminist academicians, et al.

    …and sold them to Wikileaks…

    First time I’ve heard that. Craig Murray:

    Murray insisted that the DNC and Podesta emails published by Wikileaks did not come from the Russians, and were given to the whistleblowing group by Americans who had authorized access to the information.

    ‘Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,’ Murray said. ‘The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.’

    He said the leakers were motivated by ‘disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.’

    Murray said he retrieved the package from a source during a clandestine meeting in a wooded area near American University, in northwest D.C. He said the individual he met with was not the original person who obtained the information, but an intermediary.

    It amazes me there’s so little dirt on Trump. All they could find after scouring decades of background was the “grab ‘em by the pussy” comment and a stripper/hooker he had sex with once. If there was anything else we’d have seen it by now.

    Blackmailers have their power through the threat of revealing information, not by revealing it.

    There’s the theory that politicians are promoted with a view to their blackmail potential, and then there’s active entrapment. A lot of politicians were sent through Jeffrey Epstein’s underage sex island and the Pizzagate pedophile ring and they were no doubt filmed and recorded.

    Trump is acting now like he’s being blackmailed (like Clinton and Obama before him) and he’s elevated John Bolton who looks exactly the same, with his a history of swingers clubs (Plato’s Retreat & forcing his wife into group sex) that somehow the MSM never noticed.

    Bolton’s become an automaton for an Iran war the same as “Songbird John” McCain.

    This has changed me.

    I have lost respect for people, and especially women. Too many are incapable of restraining their prejudices and emotions.

    That accusation was backed up by no evidence at all. Charade does not come close to describing it. If women are not capable of more rational behaviour than this, then they should not have the vote.

    America is a hysterical and silly country.

    Britain is worse.

    In my former home town of Oxford in England, hundreds of children really were beaten, pimped, tortured and raped. I was there. It was obvious. No one gave damn, least of all women. The social services are entirely female.

    Being penetrated in every orifice at the age of twelve and then having your tongue nailed to a table is a lot worse than being fumbled by a teenage boy at a house party.

    I don’t believe she became too claustrophobic to fly, or she wouldn’t have jetted off to Costa Rica and Tahiti on surfing holidays. Because she is a pampered Western female, she wasn’t called out on her lies.

    If a woman who is not a friend or a close relative ever tells me she’s been raped, my reply will be, “So what?”

    I no longer believe it is that traumatic for a woman.

    It disgusts me to belong to the same species as Chuck Schumer and Maisey Hirono.

    The Moslems are right to treat women as they do. A Moslem father would know what to do if his daughter sneaked off to go to a drinking party.

  58. Call it what you will .. the lady got gang banged yesterday by a bunch of old castrated howling tom cats.

  59. @Jus' Sayin'...

    Christine Ford is on record, claiming that Brett Kavanagh “attacked” her in 1982 and that she immediately called her close friend on her cell phone to tell her about it.

    But is this correct? I don’t think so.

    Even from memory I can remember seeing my first VCR recorder in 1981, first ATM in Bermuda in 1982, first compact disc in 1983, first Sony discman which could play 4 CDs on 4AA batteries in 1984, my first computer with modem to connect to world wide web in 1997 and so on.

    Such a glaring error in chronology would have been picked up in moments by anyone who was alive at the time.

  60. What I should have included/added is that IMO “the lady” what took place was ‘more’ than an AH redux. As for who, why,

    [MORE]
    or what side has their fingerprints on what took place I’ll leave others.

    Hey Mike,

    Thus, an intellectual whore, should, in my view, care not about the ideas, the ideology, or the message she is paid to promote.

    Rurik, I submit that Professor Ford, Senator Feinstein, et al, would have a great deal of difficulty singing Dixie with any where near the same fervor they would sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

    Yes Mike, I blurted out ‘intellectual whore’ -with reservations -for the lying slag. It isn’t the perfect designation, to be sure.

    An intellectual whore is, as you point out, someone who will take any position they’re paid or otherwise bribed to take. And the bribes aren’t always money. They can be equally ‘respectability’ within the DC/LA/NYC cocktail-party circuit. Or something just as banal.

    Like the political/intellectual whores on the SCOTUS. ‘Justices” Roberts for instance, and so many others, who betray their honor, their oaths, their nation and their souls, just to continue to be invited to DC cocktail parties and schmooze with vapid celebrities.

    But there are many examples of the quintessential ‘intellectual whore’. George Will, for example, or William Buckley, Fredo Freed, Bill O’Rielly, and so on. And you’re right, they’ll use their talents to shill whatever fetid offal they’re prompted to- with sufficient reward.

    So using that term was perhaps lazy.

    I would even include a power driven Hillary in that she would truly never abandon her progressive mindset.

    In this case Mike, I would nitpick.

    I suspect that the war hag is the quintessential gorgon of legend. A castrating battleaxe who’ll do anything for power. If her path to power is calling urban black teenage criminals = super predators, then so be it. If it means smearing rape victims as harlots and opportunists, then nothing is off the table on the path to raw power. Murder, treason, atrocities, betrayal, mass-murder and even destroying entire nations. All to wield power, and power for its own sake.

    She’d just as happily bomb the shit out of brown people in Africa as she would white folks in Serbia or burn alive Americans in Waco, TX. (I’ve always consider that ultimately her handiwork)

    For her, power is the end all, be all of her life. (And God damn but do I love Trump for snatching it out of her hands, just when it was sooooo close! :)

    But you’re right, that Ford cunt was not so much as a “intellectual whore’, of the Fredo Reed stripe, but rather a rabid, psycho, castrating partisan- roiling in boiling menstrual fluid on the war path for White men’s scrotal contents.

    Thank you for setting the record straight.

  62. We are slowing coming full circle to the patriarchal attitudes of the past. Women have little moral fiber; in effect they are emotional children till they die.
    Social constraints such as shaming are necessary to prevent self-destructive behaviour. Ford is clearly a lying whore. Women routinely make false accusations of rape. Giving them the right to vote? Most of them have no clue why or what to vote on/for and are easily manipulated by emotions. They destroy democracy.
    If our ancestors had simply said no at the turn of the century this mess would not have occurred.

    I’ve seen Cosby’s main accuser twice on TV. My first impression was: lying coke whore.

    First ((( they))) attacked old white men: Archie bunker. Now we see the true agenda of the Jew. Destroy our women via Feminism, weaponize blacks and browns against us, media attacks White’s relentlessly.
    It’s pretty clear who is behind this. They are vermin.
    We will have our countries back but not without a fight. Jews will leave out of fear. Then the rest will be much easier to deal with.

  63. @Rurik

    Upon second thought and reading your post, I agree with your assessment of Hillary.
