123. Yes. Let's have more history being made. A sexual predator - no, a SECOND sexual predator

installed on the Supreme Court by REPUBLI-CON presidents. No, make that... installed on the Supreme Court by a republi-CON president and a RUSSIAN ASSET who cheated his way in with the help of a HOSTILE FOREIGN POWER.

Let the games begin. How nasty and dirty can WE play? Is it time yet?

There are lawsuits. There IS a move to make in Maryland, to file a complaint, where there's NO statute of limitations.

There is activism. INDIVISIBLE. LOOK FOR YOUR LOCAL INDIVISIBLE GROUP. AND GET INVOLVED. Yes, I'm SHOUTING!!!

https://www.indivisible.org

The thing I like about the Indivisible movement is this: one of their top priorities is meeting with our reps. Senators and Congressmembers. And taking our "asks" - that is, our concerns, our issues, our demands, DIRECTLY to them. Usually it's a staffer or a local/regional manager or somebody. But as I've observed going to many of these, they take notes. They ask questions. They pass it up the food chain if it's not the rep him/herself in the meeting. Sometimes, as I have found, personally, the rep him/herself IS there or DOES show up, stop by the conference room on the way to his/her office, and takes a seat. It happened exactly that way with Richard Bloom, the state assemblyman for our district. In Dianne Feinstein's office, it was a regional manager both times I went. In Kurt Schrader's office (Oregon CD5), we meet with a young lady on staff, and she takes notes to pass on upwards. Haven't met Schrader yet.

There's LOTS of activism and outreach that Indivisible generates or sponsors - like tomorrow's canvassing for a State Senate candidate who seeks to flip his district from red to blue. That candidate actually showed up last night during our planning meeting, gave a brief talk listing his key issues and what HE'S learned from his own canvassing efforts, meeting people and engaging with them. If he wins, first of all, he offers better representation than the GOPer in that seat now. AND we all have personal connections with him, since he's seen several of us during various kinds of meetings. He's gonna be at that canvassing event tomorrow when we go to sponsor and participate.

FURTHER: Since it looks like Kavanaugh's gonna make it all the way through, seems to me we DO INDEED need to consider impeachment once we get power back.

The ONLY way we can follow through on that is if we VOTE, en masse, SHOW UP to the polls on November 6th, in numbers so big that it is NOT close enough to steal. Whether it's Kris Kobach or the Russians. Numbers BIG ENOUGH that it's beyond stealing.

That will enable us to flip the House of Reps, AND the Senate. So we can not only put the brakes on this monstrous, racist, regressive, despicable, AND deplorable "administration," and present some proper checks and balances as envisioned by our Founders when they originally set this up, but finish the job that these jackals refused to do. Call in the FBI. Get them started on an investigation.

If we're the majority in the Senate, WE have subpoena power, and WE have the power to set the agenda in all the committees because we'll have majority membership on those committees and OUR people will chair those committees and determine what's done therein.

We can subpoena jerks like Mark Judge and COMPEL his testimony under oath. We can devote the time to a full investigation, so that ALL these potential witnesses who wanted to come forward and tell their story can do so, on the record, under oath. And with OUR DEMS in the leadership positions, wouldn't it be nice to swat away any objections from what would probably be Ranking Member Chuck Grassley - the former committee chairman who now has no power to do anything except interrupt with a bunch of harrumphs. AND we can engage the FBI to do a full investigation.

And that can be only the beginning.

We can begin impeachment proceedings in the House of Reps. A Supreme Court Justice CAN be impeached. Why not him? It's been a long time since the last one. Only one justice has been impeached by the House of Representatives (Samuel Chase, March 1804), but he was acquitted in the Senate (March 1805).
Supreme Court of the United States - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supreme_Court_of_the_United_States

And frankly, if all we get is impeachment of him, and somehow the Senate doesn't follow through, that will STILL be a mark on his record, in the history books, in his biography, and more. He will be the second justice to be impeached, and many years beyond this, people can google him and go to Wikipedia and read all about the big blot on his record. He'll go down in history with that as his legacy.

And one other thing, too. If we can flip both houses of Congress, we can start dismantling the CONS' efforts to destroy our rights, our institutions, and what protects us, our privacy, our right to vote, our future, and our very survival on this planet - our PLANET'S survival! They care not. WE DO. And WE MUST.

Otherwise, the Supreme Court will from here on be permanently blemished.

This ISN'T over, and this must NEVER be over. Until true and genuine justice is done.
