Post Kavanaugh--Women Rising
Okay, well, I moved Yogagirl's post supposedly to the"Trump Unraveling" thread, but the app has a mind of its own and it took it to the thread called: Hope for Wildlife Due to Rising Consciousness. You can read it here:
Yogagirl, as Laura said, you can copy and paste it and just post it in the thread of your choice. Sorry about the error, but it's an interesting cyber error.
Yogagirl, you are not alone in your unhappiness.
These are incredibly challenging times for all of us as one thing after another piles up and creates so many challenges individually and collectively.
We hear you, feel you, reach out to you but you have to admit--sooner or later the absurdity of it all, especially when our digital world (and especially Jeanne's lovely world here) gets out of control with bizarre glitches --we just have to laugh!
And putting your comment into a really old topic on raising consciousness to protect wildlife is such a "what in the world is the Universe trying to show/tell/teach us?" example.
I just have to laugh because crying isn't a very fun alternative especially during these hard times when we cry too much over too much.
Love to you fellow travelors 💜
Love, light, and healing prayers,
Jeanne's call to stand in the light and Cindy's descriptions of the complexity of the challenge always speak to that quintessential dilemma I encounter on my life path. When I examine my navigation of the confusing roadways I encounter in interactions with my family members and colleagues, I so often feel remorse about my impulsive words and actions. The only way I can rebirth myself following such experiences is to focus on the wisdom someone once shared and that always whispers up over the devastation--focus on what you are doing, NOT on what others are doing. I don't know where the knowing comes from but the only way I have found the energy to go about healing from such situations is some form or other of decording from others and washing in the light. It's a sort of gardening; pulling out the thick roots, tubers, and tendrils of the weeds that cling to my being and releasing them to the light. These dramas are like wet clay; they suck away the breath of life and sometimes things just have to dry out before I can even begin the business of getting on again.
Gracesinger, your post speaks directly to my own struggle and heartache. You’ve shared such wisdom in your beautiful imagery. You touch my heart and lift my spirit in an amazing, surprising way. I’m taking your words with me and am sending you my gratitude, love and healing for your own personal journey in this life in this world. Peace to you, my heart friend. Namaste.
@saibh, You're talking about the latest sexual misconduct allegation, correct? I am glad that came out a day after it was announced that Barr is giving the AJ's Award for Distinguished Service, the second highest honor in the department, to the DOJ lawyers who worked to support the nomination of Kavanaugh. This is not the purpose of these prestigious DOJ awards. The awards typically go to prosecutors who make the biggest cases against terrorists, organized crime enterprises, etc. For example, last year it went to the prosecutors who secured the conviction of the ringleader of the Benghazi terrorist attack.
It's heartbreaking to witness what has happened to the DOJ under Barr.
And yes -- I'd love to know who mysteriously paid off Kavanaugh's debts.
I am assuming you mean this article
I am not sure it will start a ball rolling but it will keep the issue alive until we can get more political will moving to do something about it. My thought is that more people who were at Yale when Kavanaugh was there will come forward now. It was a good article. I hope a lot of people read it which helps expand the buzz about it.
If we get a blue wave in the Congress and executive branch, his removal will be on a bucket list.
I think this will restart the investigation into Kavannah. What will take him down isn't the women but the fact he lied under oath. A Supreme Court Justice lying under oath can only happen under Barr and Dump. (by the way I have a couple of new nicknames). I also think that they will investigate where the money came from to pay off all his debts. My guess would be the GOP, or blackmail of former Justice Kennedy.
Ask and ye shall receive. I was looking for the thread that contained the name of the narcissist therapist who had a YT channel for days. I gave up. I came to the site today, and found that this thread had been revived, and lo and behold, on page one there is the name I'd been seeking. Thank all of you who had a hand in this!
I have read or listened to a number of psychics who said from the time Kavanaugh got onto the court that he'd be short lived. One said within three years. It resonated with me. There's more that will come to light about how he was pushed through. It's a real shame that being a serial sexual assault perpetrator isn't enough to get him off the court. It will be the lies under oath. But it will be a lesson that has far reaching aftereffects.
The NY Times authors are publishing a book on the subject, which will mean a book tour and more stories.
But the NY Times essay left out a key component and now the Times has had to apologize, so now the Right has a counter argument they will use: that the woman at the center of the new allegation told friends she doesn't have complete recall of the incident due to drinking. However there are others who were around at the time that have said that they had heard the story.
It's turning out to be a very bad, no good, terrible day for Brett Kavanaugh who's the hot topic of discussion on Rachel Maddow's show and on Lawrence O'Donnell's show tonight. Maddow interviewed Kamala Harris who said Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing was a sham and how many people are stll extremely bitter about it because justice wasn't served. She's calling for either an impeachment investigation or for an independent counsel to do an investigation. O'Donnell talked to the two authors of the new book about Kavanaugh who said they interviewed many people from Kavanaugh's college and high school days who personally witnessed his bad drinking and sexing behaviors. Some of these people were so apalled and horrified that Kavanaugh might be confirmed, they repeatedly tried to make contact with the FBI to tip them off. Apparently, the FBI was ordered by the WH not to pursue any of these leads.
Earlier in the day Jerry Nadler was on video saying the judiciary committee had it's hands full with impeachment activities for trump and didn't have the time to do a 2nd impeachment investigation into Kavanaugh. That said, this marks the beginning of one never-ending bad day after another for Kavanaugh. The book hasn't even been released yet, and it's already re-ignited the stench and furor around Kavanaugh's confirmation process to the supremes. In the short-term, an independent counsel investigation is probably the most likely outcome.
