Never underestimate the power of women's outrage, commitment, and fierce love for ourselves and each other.

WomensMarch.com: Over a thousand women, survivors, and allies rushed the stairs of the Supreme Court ... These folks are just some of the people who put their bodies on the line today to make our last stand against Brett Kavanaugh's illegitimate appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States. Our sisters and allies are facing a greater punishment for peaceful protest than Brett Kavanaugh is for being a serial abuser. Like me, many of them are survivors of sexual violence. And they were arrested for standing on the steps of our nation's highest court in protest of giving a sexual predator a seat in it.

Over 150 people were arrested.

Kavanaugh's nomination is an assault on women, immigrants, people of color and people with disabilities - and we will fight back. Women are ready to mobilize and organize.

I think it is fair to say that millions of us feel as though we've been raped again by this illegitimate appointment. Righteous rage is powerful. I don't think Kavanaugh will last long.

Its time for us, we the people, to kick corporate ass alongside those who rape. Rape is a horror by Nature and in women, who are the Essence of Life both in humanity and the entire planet Earth and what' is beyond Earth.

Given that corroboration is hard to achieve after so many years, another level of corroboration was widely available. Excepting Kavanaugh's alcoholic drinking pals, all fellow Yale students who knew him stated that he lied under oath to the Senate and described him as a drunk who clearly had blackouts, treated all women like dirt and was an embarrassment to the school. 30 or so witnesses watched him expose himself to a woman he did not even know. It was the talk of the school for weeks. Those witnesses contacted the FBI who refused to interview them. The corporatists wanted him on the court no matter what. Only option now is to impeach him.

Everything about this nomination is a farce: non-release documents to the public, the sexual assault charges backed up by polygraph, the unhinged emotional denial, the senator voting yes on condition of an "investigation -- limited in time and scope", a Senator saying that public confidence in the supreme court will be increased by having fewer close votes by packing the court with group think judges, thousands of law professors advising he not be confirmed, the passionate outcry of citizens, and the narrow 50 to 48 vote. Then top it off with the swearing in of one of the most important offices of our democratic government in a private ceremony with only his wife and two children as witnesses. I feel sorry for them and I wonder why he withstands this amount of humiliation.
