At 10 PM in DC yesterday, McConnell filed for cloture on the #KavaNOPE confirmation. According to Senate rules, that gives us till 11 PM Friday to make our voices heard.

There has never been a more important time to call your Senators. Tell them to vote NO. #StopKavanaugh
Dozens of potential witnesses to Kavanaugh’s behavior were ignored by the FBI. Dr. Ford was not interviewed, nor was Kavanaugh himself. Corroborating witnesses for additional accusers were not interviewed.

The FBI investigation was a sham.

A letter being presented to the US Senate today: 1,000 law professors and counting insist that Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed.

This weekend, the GOP was caught trying to limit the scope of the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh to 4 people; it did not include Kav or his accuser Dr. Ford, and did not allow them to pursue leads.

They relented because of pressure. Pressure works. Keep calling. #STOPKavanaugh
If you are not calling your Senators, the time is now. Pressure them to do the right thing!

Constituents of the following Senators MUST call and tell them to vote no. We REALLY need you!

Murkowski: 202-224-6665
Collins: 202-224-2523
Flake: 202-224-4521
Manchin: 202-224-3954
A list of all Senators. Precede each number with 202-224-XXXX.

I’m calling mine EVERY DAY.

The GOP embarrassed itself today. Their nominee was blustery and belligerent, refusing to answer questions directly.

An innocent person would welcome an FBI investigation to clear his name. The GOP does not believe him, evading such calls with trumpery.
A tale told by an idiot..
“The FBI doesn’t come to conclusions.”

Of course they don’t, but it is not credible that a Judge would deny the necessity of a professional investigation. Does any Judge conduct investigations during trial? No. The RESULTS of an investigation are reported on to get at the truth.
I believe Dr. Ford. She endured excruciating questions, answering candidly. She stood to gain nothing.

In contrast, Kavanaugh has lied repeatedly, about the contents of his yearbook, drinking, & his involvement with the theft of Senate documents in 2003.

Why does the GOP promote and support Predators?

Predators find it easy to prey on any group to enrich or further empower the powerful. So, supporting those predators is a sure way to be funded.

Most of all, the nature of predation is conservative. A thread. /1
#FridayFeelings
Conservatism is the opposite of progress. Conservatives seek to maintain existing power structures, because they’re the ones who benefit from them.

Name any issue in which society has progressed, and conservatives have stood against them. /2
Whether we talk about civil, woman’s or gay rights, empowering the poor, or democracy itself, conservatives have stood against progress. They hate the concept of social justice, because it seeks to empower the powerless, and threaten their privilege. /3

Kavanaugh has a 2nd accuser. Senate GOP heard last week, & pushed to rush his confirmation. They knew of 2 accusations of assault, and wanted him on the court anyway.

The GOP intimidate victims to stay silent & protect the careers of white, male predators. Enough. #BeAVoter
Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer with the story of Kavanaugh’s 2nd accuser. The GOP knew about her, and pushed to rush confirmation.

Kavanaugh, Moore, Jordan, Trump. The GOP supports and enables predators.

“Boys will be boys,” as long as they’re white.

We are closer than ever to thwarting this nomination. Call volume is everything!

The GOP aren’t hostile to Dr. Ford because they think she’s a liar. If they believed that, they would welcome an FBI investigation to clear his name.

They’re hostile towards her because they know she’s telling the truth.
Brett Kavanaugh is a predator.
That suits them. #BeAVoter
I’m sick of men’s opinions on how Dr. Ford is mistaken, or a liar. Men who haven’t met her, don’t know what happened.

They know she’s not lying. They think women should be expected to endure what she did as a right of passage. 🤮

The time for predators is over. #TimesUp
Please don’t be sick of hearing this, because it’s so important. You need to call you Senators and tell them to vote no on Kavanaugh. There are some key GOP wavering. Call volume must be high! #StopKavanaugh
