TKC MUST READ!!! CONSERVATIVE JACK CASHILL COMPARES ROCKHURST GRADS: SENATORS HAWLEY VS. KAINE!!!

Apropos for #TBT and because I'm a grad of a local B-list Catholic school, I wanted to make a quick confession and/or statement of belief to start this post.

This one is for the cheap seats . . . 

NOBODY CARES WHERE YOU WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL!!! KANSAS CITY DEBATE OVER THE ROCKHURST ROOTS OF SENATOR HAWLEY ILLUSTRATES THE PATHETICALLY CLIQUISH WORLDIVEW OF MIDDLE-CLASS COWTOWN HACKS!!!

Alas . . .

I've tried to ignore the story of Hawley's Rockhust connection because it's so petty and provincial.

Moreover, the Rockhust myth of "achievement" is just a typical hypocrite Catholic hype to obfuscate endemic American wealth disparity.

Grant me one bit of nostalgia . . . Don't count this intro as jealousy because I've never envied the Rockhurst grads who imagined themselves as champions of the "white man's burden" whilst low-rent Catholic school thugs like TKC had much more fun practicing drinking, dating and crafting elaborately stupid jokes.      

But all of this is just a fun digression which sets the scene for a much more relevant and ingenuous article by Kansas City's most prolific right-wing scribe . . . 

Mr. Cashill turned Senator's Hawley's Rockhurst connection and overwrought quotes from pompous school officials on its ear with a really great juxtaposition of two grads and a comparison of their political record. 

The money quote to start . . .

Wary of phone calls with reporters, especially from the Star, I texted back. "Here is a quote. 'Josh is a super stand-up guy, a presidential contender. Rockhurst should be proud.'"

Then, Mr. Cashill goes on to roast the Prez of Rockhurst and Hawley's alumni Eskimo brother Senator Tim Kaine . . . 

"I would recommend too that President Laughlin take a look at what Vox encouragingly called "Tim Kaine's evolving views on abortion." Nothing quite says "hypocrisy" like "evolving."

"As Hillary Clinton's running mate in 2016, Kaine had a lot of quick evolving to do. Although he was still claiming he "personally opposes abortion as a Catholic," he somehow managed "a perfect pro-choice voting record, according to NARAL Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood."

"The Catholic Church considers abortion murder. So firmly held is this belief that even Jesuit Pope Francis upholds it."

And so, rather than dredging up some vague local connection to Senator Hawley . . . Mr. Cashill uses the link to talk about CURRENT public policy debate and distinct differences betwixt Republicans Vs. the Democratic Party beyond talk show pandering. 

We might not always agree with Mr. Cashill but in this instance he took a hack newspaper hit job and turned it into a valid comparison betwixt two political viewpoints what will continue to divide the nation and Kansas City.

You decide . . .

Great column by Cashill.

He's right to bring up the issue of abortion. It's a question that Biden consistently dodged. The Democrats always lose elections on it because most Americans don't want to defend it. Way too depressing.

You heard it here first said...

Hawley will be president.

And yet it's quite possible to personally opposed to abortion while allowing others to decide for themselves. The fact Cashill doesn't understand that is truly weird.

Whatever ethics and morals Hawley may have been developing at Rockhurst High School, he apparently lost at Yale and Stanford as he "matured".
The mindless ambition and entitlement preached at "elite" colleges and universities seems to have influenced Josh far more than his experiences at high school.
It's a shame he's brought such "values" to public life, but he has lots of company.
In fact, some right here in KCMO.

Well, Cashill can say what he wants, but George Will, someone who people have actually heard of, promoted Lil' Joshie to the position of "America's Most Ludicrous Senator", ousting Lindsey Graham.

I oppose abortions, so I don't get them. See how fucking easy that is you dumbfuck rubes? Mind your own fucking business assholes.

Hey 9:37 - Biden hasn't dodged shit. He's pro-choice. He's been clear on it. He doesn't think the fact that his religion is against it means shit. Because you know what, the Catholic church doesn't have any say in our government. How fucking hard is it for you fucking nimrods?

I'd love to see the percentages of Congress members who are out here every damn day extolling their piousness who have banged some broad on the side and paid for or encouraged an abortion. Abortion for me but not for thee.

Nice equivalency Oswald. A clump of cells vs. a living, breathing child.

Hey, ever been told the fetus you're carrying at say, 15 weeks in, isn't viable and will be dead on delivery? Yeah, you should definitely be able to tell those parents "tough shit, carry that child to the end".

Head start on shit 12:32. That kook can file anything she wants, it'll be summarily dismissed by the adults in the House. Sure, Matt Gaetz or some other dipshit will co-sign but the rest of the normies will shit all over that garbage.

I can't wait to see that moron try to string to sentences together supporting her stance. It'll probably have some reference to some weirdo website that will have you fucking clowns jerking off saying "yeah, I done saw that on there website too"

NEVER DONATE MONEY TO ROCKHURST HIGH SCHOOL. I ATTENDED ROCKHURST IN THE EARLY 1980S. THE OBVIOULSY DO NOT TEACH RIGHT OR WRONG. JUST HOW TO OBJECT OVER SMALL DETAILS AND NOT USING YOUR MIND TO MAKE CRITICAL DECISIONS. ANYONE WHO BELIEVES IN THE CANNIBALS OF Q-ANON OR A THROWN ELECTION AFTER 60 COURT CASES AND THE SUPREME COURT AND BARR RULES NO FRAUD IS CRAZY.

DO NOT MAKE ANY DONATIONS OF ANY KIND TO ROCKHURTS!

Josh Hawley = Traitor

Al Qaeda failed on 9/11 to attack / crash a airliner into the capital, Hitler failed to attack the Capital / or conquer the USA. Japan failed to attack the Capital or set foot into the USA, Timothy McVey envisioned attacking the Capital but was caught/failed, Iran and North Korea have both threatened but failed to attack the Capital, Russia had many ballistic missiles in the 1960's pointed at right the Capital and yet not 1 scratch they placed on it...

Trump assembles a group at a place and time of his choosing and attacks the Capital, stops the lawmakers from choosing a President and kills police. We are ONLY impeaching him? He is a traitor and should be tried for treason and murder!

I went to Rockhurst. They are so very liberal, that your not allowed to call anything wrong. If you do call something "morally wrong", your judged as closed minded and told "judge not, lest you be judged". There is always an excuse why "wrong" can not be condemned.

But say you steal an item from the school, then they go ape shit wild and make you out to be a mobster!

Rockhurst raises cavemen. Rocks that do not think. Dont support or send your kids there.

So your theory of good people coming out of Rockhurst is BS

6:11 so you’re saying that with undeniable proof Nancy peebrain wouldn’t file charges against chyna joe for abuse of power that she did to President Trump? And did that without any proof.

You’re probably right though, the most corrupt, crooked, lying cheating party on the planet earth wouldn’t do the right or lawful thing would they?

By the way, calm down violent left wing nut job, you’re gonna stroke out if you keep screaming at your computer like that! Hahahahaha!

2004 - Lets Rumble Rockhurst boys!

Eric Givans, of Kansas City, had been charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action.

Under the terms of a plea deal, he admitted to voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action in the death of Richie Restivo, 19, a singer for the popular band the Uprights.

He died of stab wounds after a February 2004 fight outside his Rockhurst High School.

Givans could face a sentence of between three and 15 years when he is sentenced Feb. 3 in Jackson County Circuit Court.

The prosecution and defense, along with Restivo’s family, called the plea deal fair.

“The Restivos sought justice, not vengeance,” said Kevin Regan, a lawyer and spokesman for the family.

The defense argued that Restivo arranged for the fight and that Restivo and his friends arrived at the high school armed with baseball bats.

But the prosecution noted in filing the original charges that Givans stabbed Restivo seven times, including twice in the neck from behind. Court records said a set of brass knuckles with a 3 1/2-inch blade attached was used in the attack.

"so you’re saying that with undeniable proof Nancy peebrain wouldn’t file charges against chyna joe for abuse of power that she did to President Trump? And did that without any proof."

And yet there is no evidence, undeniable or otherwise regarding the Bidens, but there was evidence Trump strongarmed Zelenski, just like he did Raffensperger. Even Mueller said he was not exonerating Trump.

You may now return to the planet tinfoil radio station.

Revelation knowlege from God and dicernmement needed. You must have the mind of Jesus Christ.

There's demons in d.c. and over big cities assigned to possess people in leadership. Look at the faces of pelosi, McConnell, swallwel, liz chaney, and both sides that hate righteousness and truth. So soon many will know whose who and the fake cleaver included. Whether or not you are a believer in God, Jesus or the holy spirit, these imposters will be exposed. Right appears wrong and wrong right. This hawley, cruz and a few where standing up for truth. Search your soul and the Bible for truth. Trump was a wall between good and evil. God can use whoever he wants to do this.

D.c. has been corrupt for 100 years but now the world watches fake election that biden admitted he gained office with obama before in video and seen on cnn, fox news october 2020. Never denied it.

Biden has power of attorney since 2014 in place, his former law partner in control over all affairs not his wife. Media hid these facts.

D.c. insiders allegedly knew about this. This is the burabus crowd. Lindey Graham is another unsavory guy.

Just stop and look at what your hearing and seeing. None of this is right or just or normal.

Covid 19 another scam.

Fauci went to obama for funding of this tester made for hiv malaria in 2013 for hivaids funding for 1.9 billion for use in Africa. Sebellius hhs secretary in office then. They should of asked where tester came from in april 2020. Turned around got funding for ID NOW tester 750 million from Trump administration. Testers created in 1999. Lawsuit in 2011 amanda wu vs. Alere inc in maryland district federal court. Giving false positives. Kamala harris plaintiff in suit. Tester point of care. Bought by bill gates in 2013. Big scam and agenda. Roll out of deadly vaccines behind lie.
