Oh yeah, such valorous behavior.

The Justice Department will present one of its most prestigious awards to the lawyers who worked on the highly contentious Supreme Court nomination process of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh.

Next month, Attorney General William P. Barr will present the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service to those who worked “to support the nomination” of the judge, according to an email reviewed by The New York Times.

Mr. Trump nominated Judge Kavanaugh in July 2018 to replace Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who was retiring. Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed to the court last October.

That team being awarded includes prosecutors and lawyers from the department’s tax division, the environment and natural resources division, the civil appellate section and several United States attorneys offices.

Lawyers who worked in the office of legal policy, which carries out significant policy initiatives, and in the federal programs branch, which defends the administration in court, were also part of the team.

The announcement of this award came literally on the same day as new allegations were reported concerning Kavanaugh’s history of sexual misconduct.

Also from NYT:

Deborah Ramirez had the grades to go to Yale in 1983. But she wasn’t prepared for what she’d find there.

At Yale, she encountered students from more worldly backgrounds. Many were affluent and had attended elite private high schools. They also had experience with drinking and sexual behavior that Ms. Ramirez — who had not intended to be intimate with a man until her wedding night — lacked.

During the winter of her freshman year, a drunken dormitory party unsettled her deeply. She and some classmates had been drinking heavily when, she says, a freshman named Brett Kavanaugh pulled down his pants and thrust his penis at her, prompting her to swat it away and inadvertently touch it. Some of the onlookers, who had been passing around a fake penis earlier in the evening, laughed.

That story actually came out during the Kavanaugh hearing but now the Times has found seven people who heard about it around campus at the time it happened.

But this one is new:

We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)

This got the attention of Trump who tweeted out this advice just this morning:

Sexual predators got to stick together I guess.

You know I’m old enough to remember when awards like the ones described above were given for actual accomplishments and not just for helping to get an accused sexual molester into a position of power. 

I’m just surprised that Senator Susan Collins was not also nominated for such an award. 

After all they could never have accomplished this without her help.

    “As Stormy Daniels does LGBTQ fundraising in New Orleans, she talks about ‘smearing’ Michael Avenatti, supporting Elizabeth Warren, and why ‘shit is about to hit the fan again.’” _ “Regarding queer issues, Stormy explained she was raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, by two gay dads, Keith Munyan and J.D. Barrale, and she’s “always been bisexual.” Stormy said she had her first relationship with a girl when she was in high school and has dated men and women since then. ” – ““I want to do a battered women’s event,” Daniels said. “I want to be wildly inappropriate and do a fish fry and the logo will be, ‘Batter your food, not your women.’ Sometimes I’m funny.”

    “(The Daily Beast reported Friday that House Democrats were leaning towards not calling Daniels to testify.)”

    ““Having a penis thrust in your face at a drunken dorm party may seem like harmless fun,”
    “I want to know which man wrote this tweet. It reads like a confession of guilt.”

      I am so sick of the lies people are spreading about this good man
      Why don’t democrats talk about Comey, McCabe, Strock , Page and others who tried to overthrow a duly elected President of the United States instead of talking trash.

        you must have missed his hearings, because he is a nasty liar and there are too many similar stories about him concerning his behavior towards women to be a lie.

    “They want to scare him into turning Liberal!”

    ““I strongly oppose him, based on his views on the executive power which will continue to haunt our country, as well as how he behaved, including the allegations that we are hearing more about today,” Klobuchar said. “My concern here is that the process was a sham.”

    Democratic hopeful Kamala Harris followed a similar line, tweeting that she had attended the confirmation hearings. “Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people,” she wrote on Twitter. “He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.””

    I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice.

    He must be impeached.

    What is frightening to many of us, is the influence that the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation have in the appointment of judges, not only to the Supreme Court but other lifetime judicial positions.

    “Of the nine members of the Supreme Court of the United States, five are current or former members of the organization.” – Wikipedia – Federalist Society.

    Add Bill Barr to the mix.

    Mitch McConnell has successfully picked from these 2 organization lists to fill the vacant positions left over from the Obama Administration, which McConnell blocked every step of the way. There are 2 things I believe when it comes to Mitch McConnell: (1) McConnell is completely corrupt, and, (2) The IRS should initiate a forensic accounting (audit) on Yertle’s personal finances to prove his corruption.

    Evidently, you liberals weren’t watching the same hearings that the rest of us watched! Stop drinking the Kool aid or smoking the crap you’re smoking because it’s trusting your mind, along with the TDS you already have to deal with. Absolutely no cooberation on any allegations. Only in the fantasy in your demented little minds. Wake up and quit following like little angry sheep. Grow up!!!

    The LA Times reported Monday, “Lawyers for Ford and Ramirez, however, sent letters to Wray that, together, named more than 50 individuals that the bureau’s agents should interview. Only nine were ever contacted — all of them from the list that the Republicans had submitted.

    “A nation of women watched as a known rapist and aggressive sexual predator was put into the highest judicial position possible. ”
    ~IT~ matters that this account is by a male witness, because our media – which is a reflection of our culture – only believes men when it comes to sexual assault.” -“This isn’t “bias,” it’s actually called expertise. An expert is someone who has authoritative knowledge. A sexual assault victim has this knowledge, and if she or he was not brainwashed to believe this is all their own fault, they won’t hate and disbelieve other victims automatically – unlike the public, the media, and our lawmakers.

    Actual victims, aka experts, were silenced.” _”Not just by Republicans, who rammed Brett Kavanaugh down this country’s throat like they apparently proudly get off doing to women in their spare time” – “Our media pushed themselves into the role of moral arbiter, lecturing rape victims that it was inappropriate to try to be heard by Republican lawmakers who had already decided that all of these women coming forward, these brave women whose lives would be forever changed for the worse for it, were lying.”
    “This wrong can’t be allowed to pass like the other sexual predator on the Supreme Court.” – “Our media needs to be better. It needs to do better. They brought us Donald Trump and his Court of Predators, and they continue to enable them with their false equivocations and smarmy conflations.”
