aside Writings In Judge Kavanaugh’s High School Year Book Explained And Other Jaw Droppers

The GOP Grumpy Old Perverts on the US Senate Judiciary need an education the next time they question anyone at a hearing about their high school years. Words which are utilized like “Devils Triangle” and “boofed” are not used by boys writing in a high school year books who are not fully informed as the meanings of these sexual terms. These are not commonly used phrases that could be mistakenly referenced.That’s why I was agape as I watched the Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh smoothly and deftly lie about the meaning of these words as he was questioned by senators regarding the usage of these terms in his high school year book. He indicated that “Devils’s Triangle” was a card drinking game and that being “boofed” had to do with farting.

KLOBURCHAR

Another jaw dropping moment was when he was questioned by Senator Amy Kloburchar about if he had ever recalled his drinking to excess to where he blacked out, he not only didn’t answer but he turned the question on her.As per the 9/27/18 Washington article by Jennifer Rubin, “The worst moment was his confrontation with Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) who questioned him about blackout drinking. She explained that she understood alcohol abuse because her father was an alcoholic. Have you ever blacked out? she asked. He sneered in response, “Have you?” It was a moment of singular cruelty and disrespect. One saw a flash in the exchange with Klobuchar the same sense of entitlement, cruelty and lack of simple decency that Christine Blasey Ford allegedly experienced way back when, the memory seared in her brain of two obnoxious teens laughing at her ordeal.””After the break, no doubt advised by a White House minder, he apologized. But the damage was done. The spontaneous reaction was the real one.

JUDGE KAVANAUGH (R)
Here’s the rest of the story…On September 27, 2018, Alex Abad-Santos of VOX penned the following report, “Brett Kavanaugh’s questionable definitions of “boof” and “Devil’s Triangle,” explained” (“He says “boofing” is about farting and “Devils Triangle” is a drinking game. Many people don’t believe him.”)Excerpts:“During his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was asked about his familiarity with the word “boof,” a slang term that many have defined to mean anal sex (and others to be a kayaking technique) — and declared that it was a reference to (flatulence) farting.”

“I don’t know if it’s ‘buffed’ or ‘boofed,’ how do you pronounce that?” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) asked Kavanaugh during the hearing, intended to address sexual assault allegations brought against Kavanaugh, which Kavanaugh has denied.”

“That refers to flatulence,” Kavanaugh responded. “We were 16.”

“Kavanaugh was also asked about the meaning of the phrase “Devil’s Triangle” — which many believe refers to sex between two men and one woman, but which Kavanaugh said was a drinking game akin to Quarters.”

“The reason that “boof” and “Devil’s Triangle” were cited during the hearing is that their meanings may help paint a portrait of what Kavanaugh was like during his teenage years — a point of contention in the aftermath of three women coming forward against him to accuse him of sexual assault and misconduct.”

The phrase “Judge, have you boofed yet?” appears on Kavanaugh’s 1983 senior yearbook page. It seemingly corresponds to the phrase “Bart, have you boofed yet?” which appears on his longtime friend and former classmate Mark Judge’s page. On Kavanaugh’s page, the phrase is one of many that appear to refer to heavy drinking (“100 kegs or bust” and “Beach Week Ralph Club”) and sex (“Devil’s Triangle” and “Renate Alumnius”).

The boofing exchange between Kavanaugh and Judge, along with other terms like “Devil’s Triangle” in Kavanaugh’s yearbook entry, bears significance because it presents a specific picture of the men as having spent a lot of their time drinking, partying, and pursuing sexual exploits in high school — a reputation that followed Kavanaugh to Yale.

This is the reputation that comes into play in the account of Christine Blasey Ford, who also testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday about her allegations that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her, rubbed his genitals against her, tried to remove her clothes, and covered her mouth while she tried to scream for help during the summer of 1982. Ford also alleges that Judge witnessed the incident.

For his part, Kavanaugh has maintained since Ford’s allegations broke that he was a respectable, churchgoing gentleman in high school who was also a virgin. However, many believe his yearbook entry full of innuendoes suggests otherwise.

In saying during Thursday’s hearing that “boofing” refers to farting and that “Devil’s Triangle” is a drinking game — in addition to stating that the yearbook entry was full of exaggeration (“Many of us went along in the yearbook to the point of absurdity,” Kavanaugh said) — Kavanaugh appeared to cast himself and Judge as more immature than nefarious.”

But his definition didn’t ring true to many people watching, nor did it fully align with what his classmates at Georgetown Prep have reportedly said about what “boof” and “Devil’s Triangle” mean and how the terms were used when Kavanaugh was in high school in the early ’80s.

Based on extensive interviews by me and @katekelly with Kavanaugh’s former Georgetown Prep classmates, what he just said about the meanings of “boofed” and “Devil’s Triangle” is not true.

Though his classmates and peoplewatchingthehearingdisputed Kavanaugh’s definitions of “boof” and “Devil’s Triangle,” there were no follow-up questions for clarity.

VOX’s Alvin Chang and others on 9/28/18  went through the transcript of the hearing and noted every single time a question was asked of Ford and Kavanaugh. (They didn’t include the times a questioner didn’t ask an explicit question.) Then they noted every instance in which answered the question or said they didn’t know the answer — and we also noted every time they either refused to answer or gave an answer that didn’t address the question.

    • Dear Holly,

      I concur with everything you said. My question is what’s the real reason that these GOP lawmakers in the US Senate are rushing through this nomination despite all the red flags that we are not aware of yet.

      By now, they could have nominated a more qualified person for the job and had him/ her confirmed by November 2018 election time. What’s the big deal about this one and why the rush which is beyond reason.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • I can only imagine that it is the desire to work with ( or more likely, for) the Federalist Society and other Christian groups that seek to empower the executive branch and Kavanaugh has assured them ( which is how he quickly rose to the top of the list) that will be a priority for him in making his decisions as judge on the Supreme Court. It’s a fact that our SCJ on the right are leaning toward the big corporations in 70 % of cases involving them that come before the high court, we are looking at power and greed.

    • Dear Jill,

      He is obviously so flawed that one has to think that there is another reason as to why these GOP Grumpy Old Perverts in the US Senate are so intent on rushing this confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh by mid October 2018 which we are not aware of yet. They had time to find another qualified nominee who could be confirmed by Nov. 2018 elections. But they want this one. It’s time to start checking out what cases are up for review by the US Supreme Court in October 2018.

      Crustyolemothman had mentioned one case before the Supreme Court, Gamble v. United States which I will start researching.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • I haven’t heard of Gamble v United States, and will eagerly await the results of your research. Meanwhile, my a.m. post posits what may also be a part of the push to get Kavanaugh confirmed pre-November … the citizenship question on the 2020 census. There may be way more pieces to this puzzle than we first thought!
        Hugs!!!

  1. Dear Mz. Gronda,

    How about a few moments of humor to help ease the pain of so much frustration? Here is a U-Tube video that is a pretty good parody of the testimony of Kavanaugh… Warning set your coffee cup down before you start the video..

  2. From this side of the world, this seems to be yet another example of unworthy, corrupt, power mongering taking over the US government and legal systems, against the morality, fairness and honesty that people deserve. Honestly, this is yet another deterioration in civilisation. 😕
