This episode was expected and it went pretty much according to what was predicted. Ted Cruz came up for questioning and he had a board full of information which he believed would prove that SCOTUS nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was somehow “soft” on the sentencing of child pornographers — that being the equivalent of emails, i.e., the only thing that opposition research could unearth, and so you go with it.

Now Ted Cruz has no problems whatsoever with sophistry. He is only too happy to present facts and figures in such a manner as to prove the outcome he wants proven and he doesn’t really care if the facts and figures are incomplete. An honest appraisal of fact is never his goal.

True to form, this presentation he made to nominee Jackson was emotional and did not contain all of the facts necessary to flesh out what really did happen in each instance.

Cruz knows as well as anybody that on a purely pragmatic level that prosecutors will ask that the book be thrown at the defendant, in the full knowledge that the actual sentencing is going to be less. Yet Cruz hangs onto his revelation that “100% of the time” the sentencing was less than what the prosecutors asked for like this was some judicial marvel.

The tragic part of all this is that it plays into the bat guano QAnon theory and breathes the life of reality into it. That is the last thing that we need in this country, but that is a side effect of what Cruz, Hawley and the rest of them are doing. And they’re probably fine with that. It gets them the fringe crazies votes.

It will be good to get through this ordeal.

  1. I know it’s hard to swallow but these children of the devil, new testament words not mine, are talking to a group just like them…lying racist assholes. Nothing will change them except death. Let’s pray the evil child killers find a dirt nap sooner than later. Hey teddy. Keep eating those burgers. Maybe a heart attack will find ur ass. Now there’s something worth getting behind. U worthless evil man.

  2. When cancun comes face-to-face with a fact, he runs away screaming like a small child. Certainly explains why he can state so few.

    • i wonder if Teddy was a breach birth, he always seems to lead off with dumb ass statements and never apologizes for tormenting witnesses with his miss-information and grand performances … Judge Jackson had already addressed this kind of drivel earlier in the day of grilling, qualifying any decisions she made … If Ted’s head was not so far up his own butt, he would have already heard those comments of hers …

      He seems to get on a bobsled with no way to steer clear of the barbed wire fence at the bottom of the hill … somebody needs to grab his chin and slap him in the face until he apologizes to those that are so much smarter and wiser then himself …

    • He only takes on airline counter employees. He still acts like a petulant toddler. The Canadians must not believe in disciplining children. So they grow up to be pompous assholes.

  3. The party of grab them by the pussy, supporting a traitor who has 30 sexual assault allegations, along with child predator Mattie, fuck them up the ass gymbo Jordan, are suddenly concerned about sexual predators. Right. Are the American people stupid & EVIL enough to keep these pustules called ‘senator’?
