We had a beautiful sunset in Kapalua Bay. …It looks like a cruise ship in the distance, but it’s a large lonely cloud blocking the actual sunset.
Monica Hesse’s article in today’s Times Union regarding the Kavanaugh case being a “test in believing women” reeks of hypocrisy. So now we are supposed to believe women, when we were told that Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky were simply a pack of lying bimbos. And lest we forget, Bill Clinton was either a sitting Governor or a sitting President when he was accused, not a high school student. Some of the charges against Clinton were a few months or a few days old, not a few decades. Ms. Hesse should read her own column, reflect on what was done to the women who were abused by our president, and be ashamed that she chooses to believe only those women who fit her political persuasion.
WOW!! How far will these Liberals go to stall this process?…Papa Mike
This Liberal “Liar” Is Insulting “EVERYONES” Inteligence ( Including DIMocrats if that’s possible! ) By Stalling And Not Testifying!! She Wanted A Chance To Tell Her SIde Of This “Bogus” Incident And The Senate Gave Her Just That….. It’s MONDAY Along With Brett Kavanaugh, BUT NOW SHE SAYS she wants the FBI to do an investigation and she’s not ready? You Just Can’t Make This Up Folks!!!……….Papa Mike
This tells you everything you need to know. Why would she need to wait for the FBI to tell the Committee what happened? The only reason is the political delay helps the Democrats. Have to give it to Lindsay Graham and Trump who said have her testify, they called her bluff. Way to call this bluff? Ask her to give a statement under oath to the FBI immediately. And call for a vote on Monday when she fails to do that.
As Twitchy reported earlier Tuesday, the lawyer representing Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford didn’t seem to be in any rush to respond to an offer of a phone call with the Senate Judiciary Committee like the one Kavanaugh had.
In the interim, Chairman Chuck Grassley announced that his staff had already begun conducting interviews ahead of Monday’s scheduled public hearing at which Ford was supposed to testify. However, the latest word is that Ford won’t testify until the FBI investigates her allegations.
What would you do if you were minding your own business, sitting in a shop, and three masked robbers burst in and one shoved what appeared to be a shotgun in your face?
Well, if you were an 83-year-old man in Ireland last weekend, you would stand up and fight.
The man, a grandfather named Denis O’Connor according to The Irish Sun, was caught on camera doing his part to thwart the robbery of a betting shop on Saturday outside Cork.
When the three stormed the shop, one of them pointed an apparent shotgun at the older man, who stood up from his chair while two other men ducked under a table.
When the man with the gun turned his attention on the other men, the older man went to the aid of the shop employee, who was fighting off two other attackers who had hammers.
He scared one of the hammer-wielding robbers off, and then chased the man with the shotgun out of the store as well, grabbing a chair and charging at him.
As the remaining thief began to run out, the 83-year-old charged and kicked at him as well.
The shop manager, Tim Murphy, told a local radio station that he heard O’Connor shout, “You’re cowards, you’re total cowards,” at the men.
“I just didn’t think about what I was doing,” O’Connor told The Irish Sun. “Sometimes you can just sit down and do nothing or you can stand up to people like these and that’s what I did.”
Tastes like soy.

Not since your brother-in-law’s last cookout has a slab of brisket caused so much anger.
TV writer Kevin Biegel took to Twitter last week to share his attempt at creating a vegan “brisket” from a combination of common meat alternatives like seitan, jackfruit and miso.
Vegan brisket experiment was a success! 18 hour smoke over oak. Is it beef? Nope. But the taste/texture are pretty great. Mix of jackfruit, seitan, miso, beer, Franklin BBQ sauce made w extra sugar so it carmalized to a crust — and it did! Plus I don’t feel gross after eating it! pic.twitter.com/BivCMm4D3c

But, in doing so, he generated a flood of responses from BBQ aficionados, who blasted his attempt at recreating the smoky barbecue staple.
I freaking love the lengths you fruitloops go to in order to approximate meat. “Meat sucks, but I’m going to spend months coming up with something just like it.”
Except it’s not just like it. It’s some crap you threw together in a bowl to delude yourself. Just have a salad.

Biegel, a father of two whose IMDB credits include writing for shows including “Scrubs” and “Cougar Town,” later explained in the responses that he himself isn’t vegan, but began experimenting with alternatives after suffering heart issues over ten years ago.
“I eat [meat] in moderation. I make it for people. But I’m gonna stick with my heart doctors and the experts when it comes to my health, thanks,” Biegel added.
On the flip side, Biegel also got plenty of responses from followers asking for the recipe, and commending him on trying to change his diet, even though some suggested that his ingredients — namely the BBQ sauce — were a little high in sugar.
Two former girlfriends of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh spoke out Monday on “The Story” in support of him, in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations.
A California professor named Christine Blasey Ford was named as the formerly anonymous person in a report alleging Kavanaugh forced him self upon her at a party in Montgomery County, Md. in the 1980s.
Ford’s account was brought to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s attention by Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).
He’s coming back strong.

The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of having attempted to force himself on her at a party when they were both in high school says she is willing to testify about the alleged sexual assault. Kavanaugh has responded in a statement Monday by saying he is also willing to testify under oath.
On Monday, the lawyer representing California professor Christine Blasey Ford says she is willing to testify publicly before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the “attempted rape” she says happened over three decades ago that was brought to light by Democrats in the eleventh hour of the confirmation process.
Kavanaugh adamantly denies the allegation, as does the other man named by Ford, Mark Judge.
“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” Kavanaugh said when the allegation first came to light last week.
Judge, who Ford says was there in the room, also denies the allegation, telling the Weekly Standard, “I can recall a lot of rough-housing with guys. It was an all-boys school, we would rough-house with each other. I don’t remember any of that stuff going on with girls.”
On Monday, Kavanaugh said he was willing to make his statement under oath:
“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday. I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden is asking for God’s forgiveness for not speaking up against President Donald Trump sooner as his wife Jill reassured the audience at a posh human rights fundraising dinner the couple wants to ‘pick a fight’ against bullies.
‘Barack and I agreed to remain silent for a while to give this administration the chance to get up and running in the first year,’ Biden told the crowd at the Human Rights Campaign annual fundraising gala in Washington D.C. on Saturday night.
‘God forgive me,’ he added, making the sign of the cross as the audience roared with laughter and applause.
The last time Biden spoke to this dinner was three years ago – in 2015 – as he was contemplating entering the 2016 presidential contest. He ultimately held back in the wake of his son Beau’s death.
But Beau featured heavily in his remarks to the crowd, as he weighs a challenge to Trump in 2020. He thanked the group for honoring Beau for his work as attorney general as Delaware.
And his wife Jill Biden, who introduced, talked of how the couple wants to take on bullies.
‘There is nothing that makes either of us more angry than a bully. There’s nothing that’s more unfair or unjust than people using their power to try to make other people feel small, to tell them who they are or what they are capable of, to say their identity doesn’t belong,’ she said.
‘There is nothing that makes us want to pick a fight more than that,’ she said.
Her comments came after she told the crowd how she challenged a mean boy as a child, going up to him and punching him in the nose.
But many heard her comments as a reference to Trump.
Former Vice President Biden went further in his speech, charging Trump with using the White House as a bully pulpit.
‘Instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, and safety for all, the President uses the White House as a literal, literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none,’ he said.
As Biden began his speech, a few people in the crowd yelled ‘Run Joe!’ He replied: ‘Thank you.’
A woman’s long-winded tirade blaming her friends and family for canceling her dream $60,000 wedding has gone viral on social media.
The Facebook post starts with, “It comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the [censored] Wedding. I apologize for cancelling only 4 days beforehand.”
The bride, identified as Susan, then reveals that she and her fiancé have broken up “due to some recent and irreparable problems” before going on to blame her friends and family for “ruin[ing] my marriage and life.”
The bride went on to say during her foul-mouthed rant that all the couple needed for their grand $60K wedding was “a little push.”
“Our dream wedding amounts to 60K – all included with flights to Aruba. All we asked was for a little help from our friends and family to make it happen.”
The 17-paragraph outburst said the pair “specifically asked for cash gifts” from the guests.
“How could we have OUR wedding that WE dreamed of without proper funding? We’d sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500.”
The bride also explained she “made it CLEAR. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t invited to our exclusive wedding. It’s a once and a lifetime [sic] party.”
Mystery continues to surround the sudden shutdown last week of the national Sunspot Solar Observatory in New Mexico, which remained closed Thursday with little explanation offered.
The silence has given rise to guessing games and conspiracy theories bouncing around on social media about what happened at the facility in the Sacramento Mountains, especially given reports that the FBI was involved.
The observatory, near Alamagordo, was evacuated last Thursday, reported the Albuquerque Journal and other local media outlets.
“Sunspot apologizes for the continued closure of the facilities,” a statement on the observatory’s Facebook page said on Sunday. “The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is addressing a security issue at the National Solar Observatory facility at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and has decided to temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure.
Observatory officials have not confirmed media reports that the FBI was involved in the shutdown.
“It was our decision to evacuate the facility,” AURA spokeswoman Shari Lifson said, according to the Alamagordo Daily News. . “I am actually not sure (when the facility was vacated) but it will stay vacated until further notice
They may just solidify her vote for him.

Keeping up with the unhinged tempo of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats have resorted to inundating the office of Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who is an essential vote in Kavanaugh’s potential confirmation, with threatening voicemails and vulgar props, such as a three-foot penis-shaped cutout.
Leftist and abortion enthusiasts against the confirmation of Kavanaugh have ramped up efforts to try to persuade Collins to oppose the qualified judge, including crowdfunding over a million dollars and threatening to give the money to the campaign of a Collins opponent in 2020. Now the threatening voicemails and vulgar demonstrations are pouring in, too.
