    The world’s biggest mouth has missed his scheduled slot to speak at the UN but has just arrived now and is standing by, waiting to grandstand, by the look of it. Aljaz tv is carrying his speech live.

    He’s been tweeting as usual.

      The President of Ecuador is just finishing his speech: tRump’s waiting in the wings, next to go on. Apparently he’s made some conciliatory-sounding remarks about hoping one day to meet President Rouhani some day …

      Yup he’s up now …

        A bit of wit. His administration has accomplished more than any administration before him.
        General laughter, he said : ” I didn’t expect that reaction, but there ya go” 😀

            Yeah. I woke up for some reason, and the telly was still going, tuned to Aljaz, so I’ve just had a coffee and settled in to watch. I’ll see if I can find and post the speech later on. Typical tRump speech – we won’t tell any other country what to do and we won’t let any globalist organisation tell us what to do sort of thing. And then goes on to talk about how they are going to tell other countries what to do thanks to the US military.

              Attacking Syria and Iran’s leaders. Accusing Iran’s leaders of embezzlement and looting its people’s religious endowments.

              I’m quite proud to be a Kiwi, after our PM ignoring his BS drug rhetoric.

              Putting the boot into Palestinians and running Bibi’s lines for him – “accepting reality” about Israel.

              Basically the usual complaints about how everyone is against the US on trade and the US uber alles stuff he believes in. Will just post his speech when it’s up on line I think.

              Attacking why there are so few members of the Security Council – why aren’t all countries on it?

    Keeping in mind Mr Trump’s anti-drug rhetoric, anyone with even the most basic understanding of economics, knows that prohibition does not stifle demand, it merely raises the price for a product….

    Avenatti – continuing to “deliver”!

    “Attorney Michael Avenatti on Tuesday dismissed a rumor that he had been duped by a 4Chan user with fake allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    “There is a rumor being floated that I was ‘duped’ or ‘pranked’ by a 4Chan user re Kavanaugh,” Avenatti, who has said he has a client with claims to make against Kavanaugh, tweeted Tuesday. “This is completely false. It never happened; it is a total fabrication. None of it is true.”

    “The right must be very worried,” he added. “They should be.”

    A 4Chan user posted earlier Tuesday that his girlfriend reached out to Avenatti on a disposable cellphone, telling him that she had attended high school with Kavanaugh and had evidence that he trained other high school boys to gang rape girls at parties.

    The 4Chan user said his girlfriend then had Avenatti call a different untraceable cellphone over which they pretended to be another classmate of Kavanaugh’s who could confirm the entire story.

    At a certain point, the 4Chan user says his girlfriend wanted to stop the charade so they broke the cellphones.

    Avenatti’s Twitter account went private this morning.”

      Avenatti’s a sleazy two-bit opportunist. He needs to either put up or shut up. But he did put up Stormy Daniels so like him or not he’s delivered on his promises before….

      One think that keeps niggling at me is Ford said she doesn’t remember when or where “the party” occurred.

      Last night, Kavanaugh gave the approximate location of the house where he denies “it” happened. Thats the 3rd time he’s put it out there that he knows the time and location of this particular party, even though Ford doesn’t remember that information.

        I don’t think Kavanaugh did that. There was a strange post by someone else trying to say it was someone who looked like Kavanaugh who did it, who posted locations and occupants? That guy has been roundly condemned.

          That was a very strange series of posts by Ed Whelan an old friend of Kavanaugh’s.

          Whelan concocted his conspiracy theory with the help of at least one ‘unnamed WH staffer’, a bunch of Capitol Hill Goopers, and a pr firm CRC Public Relations, They helped him roll it out over the twitterverse

          Whelan’s now on leave of absence (lols) from the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a frothy conservative Washington think tank,

          CRC registered in 2005 as a foreign agent for Viktor Yanukovych. Yup, that’s the same Yanukovych for which paul manafort also worked as an illegal foreign agent.

          CRC was paid US$10k by Potomac Communications Group, for which Aleksei Kiselev worked. Kiselev also worked for Paul Manafort to assist Yanukovych.

          What a small, small world.

          And yes brett kavanaugh has on three different occasion made comments indicating that he he knows the time and location of this particular party, even though Ford doesn’t remember.

          The most recent occasion on which kavanaugh indicated he knew where and when was his interview with Fox a little more than a day ago now. Here’s part of the transcript:

          KAVANAUGH: this is an allegation about a party in the summer of 1982 at a house near Connecticut Avenue and East West highway with five people present.

          http://time.com/5405439/brett-kavanaugh-fox-news-interview-full/

          Recall that Ford has not made any claim about the location or timing of the party. She doesn’t remember. Kavanaugh does. Even though he claims he was never there.

          Blockheads like Wilkkkinson and David constantly belittle my comments but do none of the research. Don’t lower yourself to their level yourself by following their examples.

          I believe your next comment should be something along the lines of: Sorry Joe, didn’t mean to question you…

          but I won’t hold my breath 🙂

          and sorry to flog a dead candidate but you remember Neil Gorsuch?

          Gorsuch went to the same HS as kavanaugh.

          He just didn’t get drunk and get aggressive, belligerent, and rapey. In fact this crap didn’t happen with any other candidate for SCOTUS.

      when your Yale room mate describes you as a notably heavy drinker and an aggressive and belligerent drunk…
