Amid all the tRump clusterfucks going on, the lessons of the Great Recession aren't being given

enough attention by the MSM, up to, and including the actions this greedy, incompetent administration is taking that are accelerating the risk of an even bigger economic catastrophe.

Can a complaint be filed against Kavanaugh for lying under oath in his confirmation hearings?

According to Slate in the below article

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/09/judge-brett-kavanaugh-should-be-impeached-for-lying-during-his-confirmation-hearings.html?__twitter_impression=true&__twitter_impression=true&__twitter_impression=true

Lisa Graves is urging impeachment proceedings of a sitting judge. I agree that Kavanaugh should be impeached but it it unlikely to happen (for the same reasons tRump isn't being impeached). The impeachment process is described here

But maybe there is something else that can be done and that is by filing a complaint against a judge for judicial misconduct.

http://www.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/jud_conduct_and_disability_procedure-2.pdf

One example of misconduct is "engaging in partisan political activity or making inappropriately partisan statements." I just haven't figured out who would be the best party or parties to file such a complaint/s.

Any thoughts?

Telling pictures from the Kavanaugh hearings.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/04/politics/gallery/brett-kavanaugh-hearings/index.html

There were three pics that caught my eye.

1. The close-up shot of Kavanaugh's mug. His mouth is very pinched.

2. The picture of Kavanaugh refusing to shake Mr. Guttenberg's hand.

3. The one of McGahn's expression as he was fixedly looking at Kavanaugh.

Anyone care to share their impressions?

WTF is up with all these Kavanaugh ads lauding him as a wonderful person to be a Supreme Court

justice? (I am in California) Can anyone remember if this type of PR blitz was done for any other SC nominee?

After Cohen's admissions that implicate tRump, the implication being that tRump is an unindicted

co-conspirator, what might that mean for the Kavanaugh nomination hearings? Any thoughts?

Why is Russia dumping it's US Treasury holdings?

https://wolfstreet.com/2018/07/17/russia-dumped-most-all-its-us-treasury-holdings-disappeared-from-list/

The “grand total” of US Treasury bonds, notes, and bills held by official foreign investors (central banks, governments, etc.) and non-official foreign investors rose by $44.6 billion to $6.17 trillion at the end of May, according to the Treasury Department’s TIC data released Tuesday afternoon. This is in the middle of the range of the past 12 months.

But Russia stands out by its sudden absence.

Russia was never a large holder of US Treasuries, compared to China and Japan. In March it was in 16th place with $96.1 billion in Treasury holdings. In April, it liquidated $47.4 billion of its holdings, and ended the month with $48.7 billion. That was down 69% from May 2013 ($153 billion). It knocked Russia into 22nd place behind the UAE and Thailand.

And in May, Russia liquidated more of its holdings and disappeared entirely from the TIC’s list of the 33 largest foreign holders of Treasuries. The smallest one on the list was Chile, with $30.2 billion. Russia’s holdings fell below that amount.

So we go to the TIC list of all countries that hold US Treasuries, and find that Russia’s holdings have plunged to $14.9 billion:

Russia’s holdings have plunged to $14.9 billion:
