Thank you

Thank you Senator Susan Collins for not caving in to the mob and upholding Constitutional core of presumption of innocence, due process, and equal protection. You did something most of the Dems didn't do. You actually read the Constitution.

Peggy Sue RIP

It's been 59 years since "The Day the Music Died," when Buddy Holly perished in a plane crash with Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper.  And now, that early rock 'n' roll era really is passing into history, as Peggy Sue goes to see Buddy again.  But the song she inspired remains immortal.

Brett Kavanaugh's Op-Ed

Brett Kavanaugh has written an op-ed apologizing for getting too emotional in his testimony (as if he didn’t have plenty of reason to) and saying things he shouldn’t have said (like calling it a partisan smear campaign by Democrats, which is like apologizing for saying the sky is blue), and promising that he will decide cases in a thoughtful, impartial way based on the Constitution and the law – just as he’d done for the past 12 years, earning him a sterling reputation for integrity until some Senate Democrats pulled a Hail Mary pass and tried to claim that he was a drunken gang rapist. 

You can read the entire article at the link, but I think I both summarized it and annotated it pretty well in one sentence.

 Unhinged

Remember, all of the angry protests and unhinged rhetoric you’re seeing and hearing over Brett Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS nomination is based on the premise that women never lie about sexual assault allegations.  Tell that to this teenage boy, who I hope had no dreams of ever being on the Supreme Court 40 years from now.  

https://triblive.com/local/regional/14142176-74/lawsuit-accuses-seneca-valley-mean-girls-of-targeting-teen-boy-with-false

Imagine how that boy's mother feels.  Now imagine all the women who have sons, husbands, fathers and brothers who would be potential targets of the same kind of Salem Witch Trial justice that the left is trying to bring back to America if the Democrats win back Congress next month.  Now you know why, despite claims that the Kananaugh story will spur women to rush to vote for Democrats, polls show a huge leap in motivation to vote among Republican women. 

Here is an interesting op-ed by one of those women for whom the Kavanaugh hysteria has proved to be “the last straw,” and she’s now officially “done with feminism,” as least as it’s being distorted and used as a political weapon by today's left.

https://chicagoboyz.net/archives/58174.html

In a possibly related story, Rasmussen reports that President Trump’s approval rating among African-Americans has jumped from 23% this time last year to 35%.  I imagine that’s mostly because of the improved economy and jobs, and a crackdown on illegal immigration, which hurts black workers more than any other demographic group.  But I also can’t help wondering how well the Democrats’ embrace of the idea that an accusation alone is evidence enough to find someone guilty of rape is playing in the black community.  It must sound scarily familiar (the Innocence Project reports that of wrongly-accused people they’ve freed from prison with DNA evidence, over 60% were African-American.)

 More Lindsay Graham awesomeness

Graham seems to reached his Captain Kirk "I have had! Enough! Of YOU!" moment.

https://www.redstate.com/brandon_morse/2018/10/04/lindsey-graham-schools-leftist-protester-confronts-kavanaugh-vote/

 

With Kavanaugh, Leftists show us what they really are

Calling all sane people.  We have to stand up, draw the red line, make America sane again.  Because the Left will never stop.  Even after Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed (at this writing, it seems likely to happen on Saturday), they will do anything they can to get him off the Court or delegitimize him.  Since there is no corroboration whatsoever of any sexual misconduct on his part, they’ll try to impeach him on allegations of over-indulging in adult beverages when he was a teen and lying about it.  That’s quite a stretch, because it seemed to me that he was quite forthcoming under oath about his great fondness for beer as a teenager –- maybe even going a little overboard on that point.  But it doesn’t matter.

 

Or they’ll try to get him for his very understandable rant --- his "temperament" --- when he was called before the Judiciary Committee to defend himself against unsubstantiated allegations of attempted rape.  (And, of course, he couldn't win.  If he'd been calm, they'd be saying an innocent man would have been angry.)  He has written an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal explaining his “emotional” and “passionate” reaction to his youthful behavior being “ridiculously distorted” in front of his family and expressing the hope that he would be evaluated on the merits of his usual calm demeanor.  Leftists are already ridiculing him for writing it.  His usual calm demeanor doesn’t matter.

 

https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/04/brett-kavanaugh-wsj-op-ed-emotional-testimony/

 

Or they’ll just keep screaming in elevators, even after Kavanaugh is confirmed.  As long as George Soros’ money is flowing, and the leftist organizations he supports can be emotionally and financially prodded, the hysteria will continue.  Even now, they’re trying to lecture women, specifically white women (yes, this is also about race –- didn’t you know?), about the evils of supporting Kavanaugh.  The fact that the vote will have already been taken doesn’t matter.

 

Some have speculated that certain states will even ignore Court decisions in which Kavanaugh’s opinion was not to their liking.  That is anarchy –- potentially the beginning of the end of federalism.  But it doesn’t seen far-fetched, considering that California has already done something similar by declaring itself a “sanctuary state.”  The fact that this signals a breakdown in our system of government doesn’t matter.  (I'll go further to say that's exactly what they want!)

 

The ACLU (Anti-American Clueless Leftists Union) has done a “180” and said that, in Kavanaugh’s case, he should have to prove that he’s not guilty.  It even ran a shocking ad likening him to Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby, who’ve been proven guilty of sexual misconduct and lying.  The ACLU is over.  It's actually saying that since “this isn’t a criminal trial,” basic principles such as individual rights and presumption of innocence don’t matter.

 

Tammy Bruce (who also happens to be sick of liberals lecturing women) made an excellent point to FOX News’ Tucker Carlson on Thursday, echoing what we’ve been saying here:  “We [women] know what our lives have been, we know what we require, and we require a justice system that is fair.  And we require due process.  We do want to be taken seriously, but the only way we will be taken seriously is if the system can be trusted.”  Are you listening, ACLU?  Of course not, because conservative women don’t matter.

 

It’s clear now:  NOTHING matters to these people other than getting their way.  They don’t care how they do it.  They’ll use whatever argument is useful to them at the moment, and they can turn on a dime and say the opposite thing if they need to.  When the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee tried to drag out the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process forever by calling for an FBI investigation, they all followed certain talking points.  (That’s just what they did when calling for a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign’s “collusion” with Russia, but I digress.)  One of them was that the FBI represented the pinnacle of professionalism, independence and objectivity --- that if the investigation was left to them, they would do a better job than anyone else at getting to the truth.  And Trump stepped back and gave them the go-ahead.

 

When experts tried to tell them that the FBI essentially just talks to people and takes notes, making no determination of guilt or innocence, it didn’t matter.  (Only when then-FBI Director James Comey came to his own conclusions about not prosecuting Hillary Clinton did they depart from that policy, but I digress again.), They wanted the FBI.  All the Democrats got the memo.  Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris, the whole crowd; it was all they could talk about.  The fact that Kavanaugh had already undergone six FBI background checks in his career and qualified for the highest security clearance known to man didn’t matter.

 

And the Democrats got their way, of course.  They got the FBI, and when the FBI didn’t reach the conclusion they demanded, the Bureau was condemned by the very people who had exalted it.  Some even said it was conspiring with the Trump administration to cover up its findings.  (Wow, that would be a switch.)  They said they wouldn’t accept the results of the FBI investigation until they interrogated Dr. Elizabeth Blasey Ford.  Of course, that was just another attempt at stalling; trust me, they do NOT want the FBI interrogating Dr. Ford.  She has so many inconsistencies and fuzzy memories in her testimony that she barely made it through the Senate hearing.  The more she talks, the worse it’s going to be for her case.  Now that more people have been questioned for the record, she’s never going to be able to reconcile her testimony with what they’ve said.  In fact, I think the Democrats realize this and wouldn’t be calling so loudly for her to be questioned if they thought there was even a remote possibility of that happening at this point.

 

Sen. Chuck Grassley, in a press conference following the announced wrap-up of the FBI investigation, called the process “a demolition derby.”  He said “it really just about destroyed a good person...”  We can’t allow this kind of thing to become standard for Supreme Court nominees.

 

Andrew C. McCarthy has an outstanding column in NATIONAL REVIEW about the complaints the Democrats have now about the FBI investigation.  Of course, he correctly said at the start that this was all about delaying, nothing more.  On the chance they might (shudder) win back the Senate at the midterm election, they’ve got to keep Kavanaugh from being confirmed for another month.  So, of course, they want more time, but the FBI has done its job.  McCarthy points out that the Senate has more information about Kavanaugh than it has ever had about any judicial nominee in history, and he goes into detail about that.  It’s just exhaustive.  As for Kavanaugh’s fitness for the job, that’s the Senate’s call, not the FBI’s.

 

The liberals we know who insist on lecturing us about why the Kavanaugh investigation wasn’t thorough and why it needs to be extended for “as long as it takes” (translation:  at least one more month) should be pointed to McCarthy’s column.  It refutes the objections point-by-point.

 

The time has come for us to draw the line.  The Kavanaugh confirmation process has shown us what leftists really are, in High-Def, 3D, CinemaScope and Technicolor.  We conservatives are the adults in the room, and we are tired of being dictated to by toddlers who can't stand not being in control.  Their tantrums will continue, of course, until they start realizing their behavior is not working and is, in fact, working against them.

    I've seen all the candidates that you've been giving donations to but won't you please send a contribution to my candidate...CHARLOTTE BERGMANN is running as a Republican in Tennessee 9th District against STEVE COHEN. The RNC won't give her any money b/c she is not an "incumbent" but that doesn't make sense to me since EVERYONE WANTS TO GET STEVE COHEN OUT OF THERE. Star Parker was even on your show about him and you played the clip of him insulting her as being ignorant. Please give to Charlotte's campaign at electbergmann.com

    Mike, loved your commentary. I had an opportunity (as a male Kavanaugh supporter) to join a group of strong female Kavanaugh supporters (Concerned Women for America) who were planning to take at least two bus loads of women to the Capital today. I was pretty sure he would get nominated so I passed on the bus ride. I can feel the red wave building....

    I watched Senator Hatch's remarks and statements on the floor of the Senate. So refreshing to hear what he has spoken, all the while the liberal left is protesting in the hallways outside Senator Flake's office and other locations. Watch the protest and protestors for a few minutes if you can stand to, but more so watch Senator Hatch and the voice of reason and accuracy about all that has happened with the confirmation hearing and constant delays by the Democrats. And I have recently gained a new found respect for Senator Lindsey Graham and his outspoken remarks against the Democrats and their low down tactics. More Republicans should be speaking out, not just these two, but too many of them have the backbone of an eel, though they could have plenty to same about the political party (Democrats) that will stoop so low to do anything to continue being the obstructionist they are. Then you have that phony Diane Feinstein and other Democrats questioning Judge Kavanaugh's anger and emotions and that should be enough to disqualify him. Absurd. These same Democrats would probably question Jesus's righteous anger in the Temple, that's if they even believe in Him !!!! Judge Kavanaugh made statements of righteous anger and spelled out exactly what was happening, yet now he is the unstable, emotional and angry one!!! In my opinion Judge Kavanaugh should not have to apologize for anything, he was in his right to be angry against the character assassination and smearing of him in front of millions. The Democrats are absolutely disgusting, sickening and evil. Remember that on November 6th and vote to try to save our nation, not see it destroyed by the Democrats !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I for one am extremely grateful some of these politicos have finally grown a set of balls and are actually following the constitution which is the law of the land, The democRATS have set their own set of laws to be used strictly for only themselves, this needs to be changed, constitutional laws only for ALL, then Gitmo would be full of RATS very quickly with H & O among it's first guests in orange, followed rapidly by many of their buddies. Our President signed an E.O for military tribunals, time to start using it, term limits of no more than 8 yrs all branches same as Presidents, secret service details only for length of time a Pres. held office, Pres. libraries, each one can pay for their own not we the tax payers, all Govt. positions must use same medical care they pass for us peons, no special benefits for anyone. Final ZERO pork barrels into out budgets, plain simple no extras/buy-offs. National debt would be paid off ASAP. End of my rant.

    The following appeared on the Glenn Beck website: “The law requires all Americans to pay our fair share of taxes,” said Craig Carpenito, U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey. “These defendants deliberately flouted this requirement, acting as though fame and celebrity status placed them above the law. They are not.”

    So my question is: Why hasn't Al Sharpton been likewise charged?

    People such as yourself who's request will be more readily accepted have got to "step up" and be counted.

    10/05/2018 05:48 PM

    Here is the body of my letter I will sent to Sen. Cotrtes Masto (D-NV)
    When you first took office, I sent you letter giving you my assessment of the Obama Administration and the conduct of your predecessor, Harry Reid. If you remember the one thing Harry taught me was that you could never believe a Senator speaking from the well of the Senate because there are no consequences for any lie or slander. Chuck Schumer learned his craft well as there must be something in the air surrounding that podium!
    Shortly after the November 2016 election, Sen. Schumer along with Nancy Pelosi vowed to be the “Resistance” against anything put forward by the Trump Administration. That meant deny, delay, obstruct, and subvert any Trump policy. Democrats have held true to that promise – there has been NO bipartisan work done on any meaningful legislation that would benefit the American people. The only things that have been accomplished have been on a one party basis where 60 votes are not required. Thank Harry Reid for that! You should also take great comfort in the fact that George Soros and Tom Steyer are donating millions of dollars toward bringing down the Trump Administration. Soros groups can produce hundreds of paid protestor / agitators in short order to disrupt any gathering – riots sometime ensue!
    I have been intently watching the “Circus in the Swamp” as Congress is now referred to. I pay close attention to the main Circus Ringmaster, one Charles Schumer to gage where we are headed. Unfortunately that has been a good predictor.
    Even before President Trump submitted his nominee for Supreme Court Justice Sen. Schumer announced that he would do everything to prevent any SCOTUS nominee from being confirmed. When Bret Kavanaugh was nominated the Democrats with Assistant Ringmaster, Diane Feinstein, kept their promise. Without reciting the actions of the Senate Judicial Committee, I can only say that the conduct of the Democrats was absolutely despicable. Failing to find any job performance reason over almost 30 years to deny the confirmation, Democrats resort to the politics of personal destruction. What a disgrace! For one I agree with everything that Sen. Lindsay Graham said!
    I cannot imagine that the Senate can ever recover from the vile statements, bitterness, and the rancor of this exercise. The Senate has become the most dysfunctional, hyper-partisan, ineffective, and useless legislative body in the world! Shamefully, it is a byproduct of pitiful, petty, pouting, partisan beltway elitists that have been stripped of their power.
    You have been in the legal profession most of your working life and I can’t imagine that you could support the conduct we have witnessed. If you now believe that an accusation means guilt and that as some of your colleagues professed the guilty must prove their innocence, you have no business in the Senate! If so resign now and we will find someone who believes in the rule of law to represent us. Before there was ever a SCOTUS nominee you were going to vote NO! Once identified your No vote was predicated on the fear that he would overturn Roe vs Wade. You failed to listen to the well-reasoned speech by Susan Collins who addressed all those issues.
    In my lifetime I have been a registered Democrat, a registered Republican, and am currently an Independent. I am an Independent as I believe that neither of the two major parties have represented me or others like me for over a decade. I will make you a promise:
    As long as I see the Resistance in operation where Democrats refuse to work together with Republicans to solve the country’s problems, I will never ever consider or vote for another Democrat!
    I cannot imagine what it is like to walk the Halls of Hypocrisy (sometimes referred to as Congress) where uncontrolled irrational hysteria seeps from every nook and cranny. I also can’t imagine what it is like to collect a big paycheck for essentially doing nothing. Writing Las Vegas Sun Op-Eds and “hey look at me emails” is not my idea of a positive contribution and earning your keep, I do have a solution though for all the Resistance members trying to undermine the Trump Administration.
    Recruit a group of people with an IQ somewhere between freezing and room temperature. Teach them how to punch the NAY button every time a vote is called for. Pay them what they are worth and save the American taxpayer 100’s of millions of dollars as you folks stay home!
    If you want to know what I really think, give me a call!

Tammy Bruce (who also happens to be sick of liberals lecturing women) made an excellent point to FOX News’ Tucker Carlson on Thursday, echoing what we’ve been saying here:  “We [women] know what our lives have been, we know what we require, and we require a justice system that is fair.  And we require due process.  We do want to be taken seriously, but the only way we will be taken seriously is if the system can be trusted.”  Are you listening, ACLU?  Of course not, because conservative women don’t matter.

 

It’s clear now:  NOTHING matters to these people other than getting their way.  They don’t care how they do it.  They’ll use whatever argument is useful to them at the moment, and they can turn on a dime and say the opposite thing if they need to.  When the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee tried to drag out the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process forever by calling for an FBI investigation, they all followed certain talking points.  (That’s just what they did when calling for a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign’s “collusion” with Russia, but I digress.)  One of them was that the FBI represented the pinnacle of professionalism, independence and objectivity --- that if the investigation was left to them, they would do a better job than anyone else at getting to the truth.  And Trump stepped back and gave them the go-ahead.

 

When experts tried to tell them that the FBI essentially just talks to people and takes notes, making no determination of guilt or innocence, it didn’t matter.  (Only when then-FBI Director James Comey came to his own conclusions about not prosecuting Hillary Clinton did they depart from that policy, but I digress again.), They wanted the FBI.  All the Democrats got the memo.  Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris, the whole crowd; it was all they could talk about.  The fact that Kavanaugh had already undergone six FBI background checks in his career and qualified for the highest security clearance known to man didn’t matter.

 

And the Democrats got their way, of course.  They got the FBI, and when the FBI didn’t reach the conclusion they demanded, the Bureau was condemned by the very people who had exalted it.  Some even said it was conspiring with the Trump administration to cover up its findings.  (Wow, that would be a switch.)  They said they wouldn’t accept the results of the FBI investigation until they interrogated Dr. Elizabeth Blasey Ford.  Of course, that was just another attempt at stalling; trust me, they do NOT want the FBI interrogating Dr. Ford.  She has so many inconsistencies and fuzzy memories in her testimony that she barely made it through the Senate hearing.  The more she talks, the worse it’s going to be for her case.  Now that more people have been questioned for the record, she’s never going to be able to reconcile her testimony with what they’ve said.  In fact, I think the Democrats realize this and wouldn’t be calling so loudly for her to be questioned if they thought there was even a remote possibility of that happening at this point.

 

Sen. Chuck Grassley, in a press conference following the announced wrap-up of the FBI investigation, called the process “a demolition derby.”  He said “it really just about destroyed a good person...”  We can’t allow this kind of thing to become standard for Supreme Court nominees.

 

Andrew C. McCarthy has an outstanding column in NATIONAL REVIEW about the complaints the Democrats have now about the FBI investigation.  Of course, he correctly said at the start that this was all about delaying, nothing more.  On the chance they might (shudder) win back the Senate at the midterm election, they’ve got to keep Kavanaugh from being confirmed for another month.  So, of course, they want more time, but the FBI has done its job.  McCarthy points out that the Senate has more information about Kavanaugh than it has ever had about any judicial nominee in history, and he goes into detail about that.  It’s just exhaustive.  As for Kavanaugh’s fitness for the job, that’s the Senate’s call, not the FBI’s.

 

The liberals we know who insist on lecturing us about why the Kavanaugh investigation wasn’t thorough and why it needs to be extended for “as long as it takes” (translation:  at least one more month) should be pointed to McCarthy’s column.  It refutes the objections point-by-point.

 

The time has come for us to draw the line.  The Kavanaugh confirmation process has shown us what leftists really are, in High-Def, 3D, CinemaScope and Technicolor.  We conservatives are the adults in the room, and we are tired of being dictated to by toddlers who can't stand not being in control.  Their tantrums will continue, of course, until they start realizing their behavior is not working and is, in fact, working against them.

    I've seen all the candidates that you've been giving donations to but won't you please send a contribution to my candidate...CHARLOTTE BERGMANN is running as a Republican in Tennessee 9th District against STEVE COHEN. The RNC won't give her any money b/c she is not an "incumbent" but that doesn't make sense to me since EVERYONE WANTS TO GET STEVE COHEN OUT OF THERE. Star Parker was even on your show about him and you played the clip of him insulting her as being ignorant. Please give to Charlotte's campaign at electbergmann.com
    Than you...

    Mike, loved your commentary. I had an opportunity (as a male Kavanaugh supporter) to join a group of strong female Kavanaugh supporters (Concerned Women for America) who were planning to take at least two bus loads of women to the Capital today. I was pretty sure he would get nominated so I passed on the bus ride. I can feel the red wave building....

    I watched Senator Hatch's remarks and statements on the floor of the Senate. So refreshing to hear what he has spoken, all the while the liberal left is protesting in the hallways outside Senator Flake's office and other locations. Watch the protest and protestors for a few minutes if you can stand to, but more so watch Senator Hatch and the voice of reason and accuracy about all that has happened with the confirmation hearing and constant delays by the Democrats. And I have recently gained a new found respect for Senator Lindsey Graham and his outspoken remarks against the Democrats and their low down tactics. More Republicans should be speaking out, not just these two, but too many of them have the backbone of an eel, though they could have plenty to same about the political party (Democrats) that will stoop so low to do anything to continue being the obstructionist they are. Then you have that phony Diane Feinstein and other Democrats questioning Judge Kavanaugh's anger and emotions and that should be enough to disqualify him. Absurd. These same Democrats would probably question Jesus's righteous anger in the Temple, that's if they even believe in Him !!!! Judge Kavanaugh made statements of righteous anger and spelled out exactly what was happening, yet now he is the unstable, emotional and angry one!!! In my opinion Judge Kavanaugh should not have to apologize for anything, he was in his right to be angry against the character assassination and smearing of him in front of millions. The Democrats are absolutely disgusting, sickening and evil. Remember that on November 6th and vote to try to save our nation, not see it destroyed by the Democrats !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I for one am extremely grateful some of these politicos have finally grown a set of balls and are actually following the constitution which is the law of the land, The democRATS have set their own set of laws to be used strictly for only themselves, this needs to be changed, constitutional laws only for ALL, then Gitmo would be full of RATS very quickly with H & O among it's first guests in orange, followed rapidly by many of their buddies. Our President signed an E.O for military tribunals, time to start using it, term limits of no more than 8 yrs all branches same as Presidents, secret service details only for length of time a Pres. held office, Pres. libraries, each one can pay for their own not we the tax payers, all Govt. positions must use same medical care they pass for us peons, no special benefits for anyone. Final ZERO pork barrels into out budgets, plain simple no extras/buy-offs. National debt would be paid off ASAP. End of my rant.

    Who let the protestors into Senate area?? Isnt some spaces Secure, Blame Capitol Police??
    Fix this, seal off Capitol then.
    Or host select sites for protestors alone.
    Update CCTV array.
    No wonder they were besieged, blame Schumer for this??

    The following appeared on the Glenn Beck website: “The law requires all Americans to pay our fair share of taxes,” said Craig Carpenito, U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey. “These defendants deliberately flouted this requirement, acting as though fame and celebrity status placed them above the law. They are not.”

    So my question is: Why hasn't Al Sharpton been likewise charged?

    People such as yourself who's request will be more readily accepted have got to "step up" and be counted.

    Here is the body of my letter I will sent to Sen. Cotrtes Masto (D-NV)
    When you first took office, I sent you letter giving you my assessment of the Obama Administration and the conduct of your predecessor, Harry Reid. If you remember the one thing Harry taught me was that you could never believe a Senator speaking from the well of the Senate because there are no consequences for any lie or slander. Chuck Schumer learned his craft well as there must be something in the air surrounding that podium!
    Shortly after the November 2016 election, Sen. Schumer along with Nancy Pelosi vowed to be the “Resistance” against anything put forward by the Trump Administration. That meant deny, delay, obstruct, and subvert any Trump policy. Democrats have held true to that promise – there has been NO bipartisan work done on any meaningful legislation that would benefit the American people. The only things that have been accomplished have been on a one party basis where 60 votes are not required. Thank Harry Reid for that! You should also take great comfort in the fact that George Soros and Tom Steyer are donating millions of dollars toward bringing down the Trump Administration. Soros groups can produce hundreds of paid protestor / agitators in short order to disrupt any gathering – riots sometime ensue!
    I have been intently watching the “Circus in the Swamp” as Congress is now referred to. I pay close attention to the main Circus Ringmaster, one Charles Schumer to gage where we are headed. Unfortunately that has been a good predictor.
    Even before President Trump submitted his nominee for Supreme Court Justice Sen. Schumer announced that he would do everything to prevent any SCOTUS nominee from being confirmed. When Bret Kavanaugh was nominated the Democrats with Assistant Ringmaster, Diane Feinstein, kept their promise. Without reciting the actions of the Senate Judicial Committee, I can only say that the conduct of the Democrats was absolutely despicable. Failing to find any job performance reason over almost 30 years to deny the confirmation, Democrats resort to the politics of personal destruction. What a disgrace! For one I agree with everything that Sen. Lindsay Graham said!
    I cannot imagine that the Senate can ever recover from the vile statements, bitterness, and the rancor of this exercise. The Senate has become the most dysfunctional, hyper-partisan, ineffective, and useless legislative body in the world! Shamefully, it is a byproduct of pitiful, petty, pouting, partisan beltway elitists that have been stripped of their power.
    You have been in the legal profession most of your working life and I can’t imagine that you could support the conduct we have witnessed. If you now believe that an accusation means guilt and that as some of your colleagues professed the guilty must prove their innocence, you have no business in the Senate! If so resign now and we will find someone who believes in the rule of law to represent us. Before there was ever a SCOTUS nominee you were going to vote NO! Once identified your No vote was predicated on the fear that he would overturn Roe vs Wade. You failed to listen to the well-reasoned speech by Susan Collins who addressed all those issues.
    In my lifetime I have been a registered Democrat, a registered Republican, and am currently an Independent. I am an Independent as I believe that neither of the two major parties have represented me or others like me for over a decade. I will make you a promise:
    As long as I see the Resistance in operation where Democrats refuse to work together with Republicans to solve the country’s problems, I will never ever consider or vote for another Democrat!
    I cannot imagine what it is like to walk the Halls of Hypocrisy (sometimes referred to as Congress) where uncontrolled irrational hysteria seeps from every nook and cranny. I also can’t imagine what it is like to collect a big paycheck for essentially doing nothing. Writing Las Vegas Sun Op-Eds and “hey look at me emails” is not my idea of a positive contribution and earning your keep, I do have a solution though for all the Resistance members trying to undermine the Trump Administration.
    Recruit a group of people with an IQ somewhere between freezing and room temperature. Teach them how to punch the NAY button every time a vote is called for. Pay them what they are worth and save the American taxpayer 100’s of millions of dollars as you folks stay home!
    If you want to know what I really think, give me a call!
