Rugian, with due respect seb is not saying we should believe the woman without evidence. He is explicitly saying we should ”examine it”. I am 100% sure that we do ”examine it” then seb will find something he thinks is evidence. And so is seb. Well, we will see, between finding something and knowing how low seb bars for ”evidence” goes, I like the odds :-)

Nim:

I don't think we need to examine it to conclude he's unfit for office. There's plenty of evidence for that already.

Rugian:

How about his statement to sen Hatch that he definitively did not even attend the party where the sexual assault occurred, despite the party not bring specified?

It's pretty close to:
"Your honour, I could not have left fingerprints for I wore gloves when I definitely didn't stab the victim".

Not enough to convict of course, but clearly one way or another he's not being truthful.

I'm sure you can find another partisan hack that doesn't stink.

But is also a bit fishy, that she just so happened to be a professor in _psychology_. First of all we know with 99.99% certainty that she is NOT a Trumps supporter. Just by adding her gender to her profession. Secondly, her profession actually makes her an expert in human psychology as told from among other trauma. She may actually be very informed about the stories and emotions of sexual trauma victims. If she tells her story, I bet it will be, very compelling :)

Rugian:

To answer your question in the other thread:

The point is "he said she said", not the 36 years ago.

And frankly given what he said to hatch, that shows the merit of it being considered. I'd err on the side of caution - better not to take even a small risk of appointing him. Find a better candidate.

The point of Senate hearings is to ensure you've picked the best candidate, not merely reject only those that can be proved criminal.

"How about his statement to sen Hatch that he definitively did not even attend the party where the sexual assault occurred despite the party not bring specified?"

I think you're making a bigger deal about off the record paraphrasing than is warranted.

Why don't you just come out and say that you just don't want Kavanaugh on SCOTUS because you really love Rowe v Wade? I'd appreciate the honesty at least.

Taking a skeptical stance to accusations is not an endorsement of rape delude. Any accusation of anything needs to be treated skeptically. Be it Stacy saying brad raped her in the locker room, or Mike saying Joe stole his quesadilla out of the office fridge.

Humans need to be a left to trust each other for society to function. Part of this trust is to believe everyone follows the rules, and punishing harshly those who break the rules. The fact that punishment, particularly for sex crimes, is so harsh makes necessary the burden of proof being upon the accuser, not the accused. Nobody should be forced to argue the negative. That they DIDNT do something. It needs to be shown that they DID.

If we don't preserve this mentality then there is no longer any trust and society cannot function. We already see this with male managers refusing to mentor women, and male professors refusing to tutor their female students. There is a growing breakdown of trust between men and women, and it is precisely because #metoo has made the accusation all that is necessary to carry out the social punishments.

So I am not "implying" that #metoo is a self serving power grab that is being pushed by liars out to run a witch hunt

I am explicitly saying that is what it is.

Why does it have to be all or nothing? I believe most of the accusations because it is incredibly hard for the women and their lives are definitively worse afterwards. Why would anyone subject them to constant public bullying if the accusations aren't true? All these women face constant death threats by cuckservative men.

A lot of cuckservatives seem to think that these women's lives are better or something afterwards and that billionaire SJW's shower them with money and praise. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Now there is also room for interpretation too. Like what happened to Aziz Ansari was revenge porn and unfair and most people believe this. Most of the cases usually have differing degrees of assault in the accusation.

But what Kavanaugh is being accused of is not simple grab ass but actual assault which is very serious. We'll never know for sure if it's true but from a legal standpoint; the facts do warrant further investigation.

Here's conservative Max Boot's comments:

"-- Conservative columnist Max Boot, who has been supportive of Kavanaugh, is calling on Republicans to delay the vote. “Her story is amply documented: She told it in couples therapy all the way back in 2012, long before Kavanaugh’s nomination, and the therapist’s notes reflect that, even though they don’t mention Kavanaugh by name,” Boot writes in today's paper. “She even passed a polygraph test administered by a former FBI agent in August. That may not be admissible in a court of law, but it has already been admitted into the court of public opinion. That makes Ford a credible witness and renders inadequate the denial issued by Kavanaugh last week … If Republicans try to muscle Kavanaugh’s nomination through now, without any further investigation, they will be guilty of gross deflection of their duty to ‘advise and consent.’”

********************************

What's weird is all these poor white men so scared of the #metoo movement. Most of the people taken down are rich assholes who thought they were above the law. These are people who have walked all over you your entire lives and yet by throwing in some catch words and some exaggerated anecdotes; you're also suddenly in their corner.

Deep down you know you've been cucked which is why you try so hard to call other people "cucks" and project.

"The point of Senate hearings is to ensure you've picked the best candidate, not merely reject only those that can be proved criminal."

No it isn't. Best candidate has nothing to do with it or they would have had hearings for multiple people instead of the one nominee.

THe process for finding the best candidate happens before the president submits the nomination. The Senate then looks at the nominee and decides is he qualified or not. Kavanaugh has gone through a number of very thorough background checks and has been vetted by the FBI a few times.

There has been nothing found in any off the extensive background checks nor in the two days of questioning that in any way begins to disqualify the nomination. If anyone had evidence to the contrary it should have been provided long ago.

"I think you're making a bigger deal about off the record paraphrasing than is warranted."

Precise use of language is the hallmark of a senior justice.

If the dude is, like for example Nim and Hood here, incapeable of saying what they mean, that's incompetence when it comes to law.

If in an interview on his suitability he's incapable of not saying something that has the meaning he intended to convey, really not fit for the job.

I think the US approach to having politicians directly appoint judges is a legal and democratic abomination. The fact that your case law hinges on whether or not the ruling party can engineer a party hack to be appointed to your judiciary is a fucking joke.

it's not just roe versus wade, it's very clear (this being the most egregious case) that to some degree most of your most senior "indepenent" judges owe a degree of fealty to a political faction.

That's absurd. But Kavanaugh looks to be next level on this point. You'd be absurd to appoint him.

The guy didn't even have the integrity to report to appropriate authorites that he was in receipt of stolen information. He did not pass over the evidence. He appears to have used it instead.

You want to put a man who deliberately did not report a crime into a position of legal authority? but it's ok because he's got the right qualifications? Are you nuts?

Put it another way, suppose you discovered that he had a friend who he knew had committed fraud, but had chosen not to report it. And that friend had bought him a gift using the stolen property.

There would be no question at all, even if he was not party to the crimes commission, that this man is unfit to be the highest judge in the land.

The problem is you fucktards in the US have normalised corrupt practices in your politics, most egregiously the Republicans, because fundamentally you don't think either side are legitimate holders of power.

Congress had done everything they needed to do to approve Kavanagh except the committee vote and the Senate vote. All other procedures were done and finished.

Now comes this woman from the distant past with a murky claim about being touched 36 years ago.

Congress has bent over backward to accommodate her and she comes up with a demand that Congress is not able to comply with.

As soon as the FBI said that they do not investigate claims such as hers, she demands that the FBI investigate her claim even though she does not know exactly when or where the party was. Oh, and her only witness said it never happened.


That leaves me with just one question.

"...and all questioning will be to score political points rather than a goal of determining the facts"

A sex-assault victim in the same room with her attackeris not warranted especially when the reason is so 11 out-of-touch old white guys on the Senate Judiciary committee can harass her and try some "gotcha" questions.

These guys know what up. They had that signed 65-women letter ready right away ... only when the same women were asked about it later; some had no idea what it was for and someone would take back their signature given what they now know.

Republicans hope pretending to give the accuser a forum is enough to rush their shithead nominee through. It just might be at this point but the rest of the world can see it for what it is.

Hence you conflate the fact the guy benefited and had evidence of a crime (hacking) and did not report it which should flat out remove anyone from consideration as a judge; and the sexual assault issue.

You'd have more credibility if you weren't so obviously partisan.

The accusation is not that they were drunkenly groping each other. One person was drunkenly groping the other. The accused does not claim it happened but was consensual, he says it didn't happen period.

So why are you trying to downplay the nature and seriousness of the assault rather than the likelihood it took place?

What the FBI can do is interview, conduct checks etc. They can do a better job at obtaining a sensitive overview of the credibility of the witnesses based on whatever corroborating facts can be found.

Whether that's the right approach I don't know. But again, the question isn't "can the fbi secure a conviction".

And should Ford show up on Monday they can question her then ask Kavanaugh to respond.

"Background checks are not the FBIs job?"

Yes they are. In fact they have already done six background checks on Kavanaugh. One of them was ongoing while Feinstein was sitting on the letter. During that background check would have been the time to submit it to the FBI.

"Many of us heard a buzz about it indirectly with few specific details."

"The FBI in a local crime can be asked by the local department to assist if the local department feels they lack the resources to complete an investigation. Nothing about this is something the FBI would be involved in unless asked to do so by local authorities. "

Lack of resources are not a prerequisite. FBI can investigate at the request of the White House. This involves a current Federal Judge, which by default would be an FBI investigation. The background can still be conducted, despite it being finished, it can be reopened.

"That being said what is there to investigate? There is no crime scene. There is no timeline. There is no evidence to be examined. All potential witnesses are known and can testify before a Senate committee. There is nothing for the FBI to do here."

Very little, that is no doubt. But still have witnesses to piece together, involves other classmates of hers, and his. Which coincidentally be more focused as a background check more so than a crime. But I understand if you don't fully understand how investigations work because it's painfully clear that you are ignorant on this topic judging by your previous statements.

If you are calling me a communist, you really haven't being paying attention. "Lost the plot" is an idiom meaning, broadly, to mean you have gone crazy. Lost your marbles. Round the bend (so far you can't touch it with a barge pole).

"My prediction was that, you disliked the guy, even prior to this."

No, your prediction, very clearly, is that I would seize on the flimsiest piece of trivia in any investigation of his alleged sexual assault and claim it was evidence of guilt.

To quote you directly:

"He is explicitly saying we should ”examine it”. I am 100% sure that we do ”examine it” then seb will find something he thinks is evidence."

That's pretty unambiguous, how stupid do you think people are Nim?

I'm saying actually, we shouldn't have any need to even examine this issue to determine whether he is fit as frankly, if you have even the slightest bit of sense, he's already admitted to things that out to bar him from being considered.

I dislike the guy because he's a candidate to be a judge, and he not only failed to report a crime he was aware of, he actively benefited from it (and possibly encouraged it). This is putting your party above the law. How can you possibly be a judge when you have shown you will put your parties interest above the law?

Frankly, I don't even think anyone who pays in cash to secure a "discount" for handywork should be a senior judge. It speaks to honesty and integrity vs turning a blind eye to criminality. But to do so for party benefit is a huge red flag when it is a political appointment to a post that is supposed to be impartial.

He's stone cold admitted to behaviour that shows he is prepared to set aside the law in favour of his party.

This is a fundamental role in society - it shouldn't be a political appointment anyway, the Americans have fucked that one up royally as it is - but that makes it all the more important that candidates be impeccable in putting the law above all else.

Whatever his mastery of the law, he's demonstrated (and admitted to) the wrong attitude, behaviours and principles.

Seb: do you care about camera? If not, get a Nokia. If you do, I don't have any cheap but quality recommendations at the moment.

I read alot (including the newspaper via pressreader) so tend to like a big screen. Decent camera (doesn't need to be super duper) is good too - use it to snap notes, and walls full of post it notes.

I think I was vaguely sold in an HTC phone.

Check out Nokia. Something in the 6-7 range (model #) might work pretty well for you.

Huawei p20 looks nice. I would get that if I was looking to replace my p8.

lol @ the retards ITT whining about the FBI "investigating".

Best they can do with 40 year old memories is potentially place them at the same location.

The only witness denies the event taking place.

"Huawei p20 looks nice."

If you're a fan of Chinese spyware, sure. And that's established fact, not fearmongering.

Htc is fairly bland, but acceptable.

HTC is old. Even an old note 4 would do well for Seb. A newer note would be better given what it seems like is his work flow. A pixel 2xl is also nice but lacks storage. An LG v30 is also a nice value fun with a good screen. I have a strong preference for OLED phones because you can have a fully black page and then white text on it for minimal eye glare.

@Forwyn - Wrong again.

Only witness who is also possibly a co-assaulter now says he has no recollection.

This is a pretty credible accusation but republicans are still stuck in the past.

While I don't agree with the excesses of metoo, you can't deny it's also outed a lot of shithead asshole serial rapists and assaulters.

The facts of this case line up with a credible case and are corroborated by other individuals.

jergul, Huawei phones have literally been found to have spyware on them. There's no tinfoil needed.

"Coming from a poster who thinks project veritas is credible."

Coming from a poster who ignores that the raw footage has led to the oustings of two dem operatives, two NPR execs, and the total collapse of ACORN. Feel free to ignore his editorialized initial releases, but to deny their impact and efficacy is naive.

"who is also possibly a co-assaulter"

Only if the "victim" is now changing her story to include two perps instead of one.

"This is a pretty credible accusation"

Not really. There is zero corroborating evidence; as I said, best you can hope for is to put them at the same place.

Witness testimony is unreliable for this; ask yourself if you remember all of the guests from a drunken party you remembered 5,10 years ago; now ask if you remember 2-3 people slipping away to a bedroom.

Now make it 40 years. The claim is laughably unprovable, even for the FBI.

Dukhat:

I loved the notes, had a 2 and a 3, but too expensive to be good vfm, and I think I'll go for a new one Vs second hand. A note 4 would be older than this nexus 6!


Jergul:

Huwawi p20 was the one I was thinking of, not HTC. But yeah, hoods right. We've been warned off them. By people who would know.

Forwyn:
Again, are we asking them to prove beyond all reasonable doubt or assess witnesses and leave the senate to decide on the Ballance of probabilities?

Hood is not correct. The security concerns are conjecture.

We know China's goverment is fond of information control. We know Chinese companies have to care what China's government thinks. Therefore it is entirely possible that at some future date, Chinese phones will provide data to the chinese regime.

Which is fair enough, particularly if you have a government job (boy would you be the fool if there ever was a security event).

Norwegian cell-phone infrastructure is supplied by Huawei, so I guess it would be best not to even use a cell-phone in this country from a pre-cautionary perspective :).

For actual practical security:

I use a vpn and an f-secure security package for my cell-phone.

That's not enough given what might be the issue at the chip level. Put it this way, that's exactly what a corporate provider would do in their architecture anyway, so if that solved the issue we wouldn't be having this conversation.

Dunno about infrastructure - I assume there's more monitoring of national infrastructure by security services?

Anyway, given next Friday is my last day i don't think personal use of a huwawi is problematic.

"Hood is not correct. The security concerns are conjecture."

No. They had, unequivocally, spyware on their phones that sent data back to Chinese servers. Please note I didn't implicate the Chinese government, which is what you seem to be fixated on.

If you're alright with that, but Huawei. If you like at least a veil of privacy, buy from a company that hasn't explicitly squirreled your data away to their servers.

Government concerns are just future (or unbeknownst current) conjecture/worries.

I was pointing to practical security (how users screw up and compromise their data). Vpn and a security package plugs a lot of holes. It will also catch aps and some os functions doing spyware stuff.

Hood
That some phone model was bundled with something that sent data to servers? I am sure that happened.

I always do the due dilligence thing on new stuff. I do not even remember if I initially uninstalled stuff for that reason.

Does it happen now? It seems exactly the kind of stuff huawei would not be doing these days.

Hood and I might be talking about different things. I hadn't heard about the malware - but I think the concerns raised were more fundamental and specific to that co as far as I know (though of course the details were not gone into). e.g. using Lenovo kit was not a problem.

Spyware. Not malware. The concerns are likely just rehashed NSA junk passed across the Atlantic to privileged counterparts. Congress has formulated them as best it can (they are conjecture).

That is my take on it. Though cell-phones are by definition not secure in any event.

Chipset flaws are not actually the domain of security agencies. Its computer geek stuff.

And yes, you will get security vulnerabilities if you google chipsets.

The assumption of malice (this is intended backdoor weaknesses on the off-chance the regime desires access) is far-fetched.

In sum: Western intelligence sucks donkey balls. I could conjecture better theories using my left brain.

Um. You dont think that gchq - for example - is at all interested in compromising phones?

All I can say is we didn't go with our first choice on a number of devices, and it wasn't just their phones. Nor was it "yucky china". Could be a flaw, but then NSA and GCHQ have been known to have flaws introduced into commercial products. It wouldn't blow my mind if what at the time was China's premium phone brand had similar shenanigans.

"Coming from a poster who ignores that the raw footage has led to the oustings of two dem operatives, two NPR execs, and the total collapse of ACORN. Feel free to ignore his editorialized initial releases, but to deny their impact and efficacy is naive. "

Indeed, let's talk about the NPR execs and their heavily edited video;

1. The two Schiller's unrelated resigned because they expressed their opinion about the Tea Part Movement, in an undercover video, which was shown to be heavily headed.

2. Though with the video conservative media outlets, including The Blaze, despite the fact of their personal opinions expressed by the execs of tea party members; stated that NPR is a balance organization especially in regards when it came to donations that leads to this point number 3.

3. The criminal O'keefe was attempting to exploit how completely imbalanced NPR was because they receive charitable donations from George Soros, which is true, but it is also true that NPR receives charitable donations from a various organizations, and individuals, which includes the Koch brothers who are your conservative edition of Soros.

Yes, two NPR execs who got caught up in an edited video to exploit them for unfair charitable actions or that they receive funds from an Muslim organization and Soros in an attempt to display them as some ultra liberal muslim loving organization where in fact it was their opinion of the tea party movement that was their cause for leaving.

Yes, integrity at it's best. Aren't you an advocate of free speech? I would think if you were, opinions of execs wouldn't matter. But that's right, since it is the pillar of integrity and journalistic standards project veritas, their resignations show how great PV was. Yep, you showed us.

ACORN:

"This was despite several independent investigations that by December 2009 began to reveal no criminal activity by ACORN staff had taken place"

"ACORN Vindicated of Wrongdoing by the Congressional Watchdog Office"

"Brooklyn prosecutors clear local ACORN office"

"Report of the Attorney General on the Activities of Acorn"

"California AG Determines ACORN Broke No Criminal Laws"

"Fake pimp from ACORN videos tries to 'punk' CNN correspondent"

"Brown Releases Report Detailing a Litany of Problems with ACORN, But No Criminality"

"Preliminary report clears ACORN on funds"

All because of the heavily edited video produced by PV. Yes, once again, journalistic integrity. You expect an organization with such negative publicity would be so able to easily recover when something like that completely presents then in another way? Even after being clear of wrongdoing. If you're basing the success of ACORN's bankruptcy from a very skewed perspective guerilla journalism, sure Forwyn projecti veritas hands down made a difference. Except it being fabricated.


'denying their impact' is 'naive'


If you think they are credible, you're retarded.

Yes I think you have a flimsy bar for evidence in support of your position and something else or as I have called it, empirical nihilism for everything you disagree with.

But that isn’t the prediction, that is the theory based on interacting with you. I base my prediction on this theory or knowledge about you.

And no. I am calling you a communist because I am paying a lot of attention to what you say. The conclusion is that I am going to meet people where they want to meet. No sense in me being cautious presenting data and making inferences, no sense in me paying attention to nuances and acting in good faith and getting peoples story straight, if I am the only one. If I am surrounded by idiots, when in Rome, as they say.

So this recent whining about bad faith and misunderstanding you, I feel it is too late for you to start caring about stuff like that.
