As you know, now Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the SCOTUS 50-48 on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 in a bipartisan vote. Every Republican but one, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), voted for him. Every Democrat but one, Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), voted against him. This will backfire on the Democrats in the mid-term elections.
If you missed President Trump’s great rally speech in Topeka, Kansas last night, I highly commend you watch it. It was truly excellent!
The vote would have been 51-49, but Murkowski, whose vote will be recorded as “no,” agreed to vote “present” during the actual vote as a favor to Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who supports Kavanaugh but was away at his daughter’s wedding. By voting “present,” and with Daines out, the final tally was 50-48. Their paired vote, as it’s called, maintains the same two-vote margin and does not change the outcome.
Most of the fake news headlines today have some variation of the theme that Republicans voted against the MeToo movement which is nonsense except in the context that Kavanaugh was unfairly and falsely accused without evidence and therefore the FemiNazis in the MeToo movement were out for his head. They tried to ruin him and his family just because Ford accused him and not because there was any proof of her accusations.
The truth was just the opposite. There is a great deal of evidence that Senate Democrats and leftist operative allies colluded to spin lies against Kavanaugh. Their motive was not to help Ford but to try to insure Kavanaugh didn’t get confirmed and to thwart President Trump. Kavanaugh’s innocence didn’t matter. Chuck U Schumer demonstrated their hate and vitriol towards this confirmation in stating the presumption of innocence until proven guilty e.g. Due Process did not apply in this case because it wasn’t a trial. Apparently the truth didn’t matter to the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee either – Feinstein, Blumenthal, Durbin, Harris, Booker, Leahy, Hirono, Coons, Klobucher & Whitehouse should all be ashamed of their conduct and complicity.
Here’s what I have to say to you Schumer and your whole gang of Democrat thugs on the Senate Judiciary Committee – we WON, you LOST and now be prepared to lose under the red wave in the mid-terms. You sure as hell will NOT be the new Senate Majority Leader nor new Chairperson of Senate Judiciary Committee nor will the wicked witch of the west, Nancy Pelosi, become the Speaker of the House again.
