Kavanaugh and the GOP

So….the rumor is that IF KAVANAUGH ISN’T APPOINTED, REPUBLICANS WILL STAY HOME IN NOVEMBER.   We’ve all heard it.  What a delicious thought for Democrats!  What a culmination of their dreams in this whole Kavanaugh-attacking nightmare!  And look at this!

@realDonaldTrump

Rush Limbaugh to Republicans: “You can kiss the MIDTERMS goodbye if you don’t get highly qualified Kavanaugh approved.”   

So that’s the story from Limbaugh and the White House?  There are people who’d hand this country to the far LEFT because Kavanaugh wasn’t appointed?   Is that what Republicans ARE?   If Kavanaugh is screwed in this process, I’ll be TERRIBLY disappointed, too, the Left will have won, but are we going to hand it to them?

IS THAT HOW YOU FEEL?

    Well . . . lemme say dis about dat:

    Ridiculous new normals, gender confusion, runaway debt, selective law enforcement, endless political tantrums, smear campaigns, failing educational system, sanctuary cities, 50% of the population totally dependent upon government for their daily survival, people offing themselves with meth and opioids, encroaching Islam, the siren call of “free-stuff” socialism, uncountable millions of illegal immigrants . . . what could possibly go wrong with that paradigm!

    To me the analogy starts with Hollywood: for years now, to be successful a movie has to have faster high-speed chases, more spectacular explosions, higher body counts, larger numbers of F-bombs, gorier gore, and gratuitouser frontal nudity than its predecessors.

    Any logical, reasonable, sane, self-respecting individual who for even a moment toys with the idea of running for PotUS, or SCotUS, or Congress would take a look at the 2016 presidential campaign media behavior, the collusion probe, and the confirmation hearings and say, “Geeez, there’s GOTTA be a better way to live.”

    Or put another way, if a true patriot, an unselfish and independently wealthy manager with no skeletons in his closet, shows up to run for the job, you’ll know he’s the right man because all the whiners and embezzlers and party hacks and race-baiters and Muslims and snowflakes will line up against him.

    But . . . it’s entertainin, ain’t it. I mean . . . I can’t WAIT for another vacancy to appear on the high court and DJT nominates a conservative FEMALE to fill it. Imagine the types and levels and numbers of deliciously salacious accusations the left will throw at HER! Better’n a Hollyweird movie.

    I understand that Mr. Trump and Limbaugh are trying to motivate people to vote. We heard similar admonishments from the left, particularly Hillary saying to her fellow communists, “If you don’t like the price of gasoline, vote for a democrat.” LOL –and how did that work out?

    In reality, we as individuals have no power, but collectively we do. Yet, presidents and radio announcers seem unaware of the fact that the qualification to serve of most house candidates are abysmal. There are only two kinds of politicians in the USA: those who are rabid communists, and those who will tell you anything to get elected. That flake in Arizona comes to mind. I would rather the president and radio announcers encourage voters to repudiate voting party and instead really know who it is they are voting for and understand why they are voting for him or her. In the absence of this … business as usual inside the beltway.

    @ AOW … it is possible, of course. I am amazed by how many “conservatives” have nothing but disdain for Trump; those are the people who may very well stay home on election day. I used quotation marks around the word conservative because I don’t believe such people are conservative at all.

    I can’t write much here because I need to get out of here for half the day, but I will say that MUSTANG reminds me of something I’d thought of but forgot yesterday; Yes, by saying Republicans will stay home if Kavanaugh’s not in (and the wall’s not built, and immigration is still a mess, etc.), that COULD make non-voting Republicans the impetus TO VOTE… let’s hope.

    TRUMP DID THE GREATEST THING YESTERDAY;

    At a press conference, CNN’s John Acosta actually told the president, as he’d stood to ask a question, “Would you please call on a woman to answer the next question?” The president looked a bit like “What?” And so Acosta repeated it, feeling very full of himself for showing the world he’s a feminist (Oh, God…!) …..and then Trump said “Of course, I’ll pick a woman, why wouldn’t I? Makes no difference to me..” I was SO THRILLED.
    What Trump basically said was “Acosta, you know I call on woman all the time, for you to ASK me to pick a woman today shows what a silly lib you are trying to expose me as if I don’t…I call on men AND women, and you KNOW that, so……..please…”
    that was a GREAT MOMENT on Trump’s part!

    I hadn’t heard that rumor, but if anything, it motivates me even MORE to vote because the fate one man shouldn’t be the deciding factor in the upcoming election. In watching Mrs. Ford testify this a.m. I must admit she sounds credible. However, we are about to hear from the accused so we’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. There still are the witnesses that said it didn’t happen, too, so there is a lot yet to be covered.

    The examination of Ford by Democrats and Republicans is the worst I have ever seen in an adversarial inquiry. If Ford seems credible, it is because there was no cross-examination.

    I don’t feel that way, but I believe Limbaugh is right. The left KNOWS they can wear down and wear down until we lose so much spirit we just want to withdraw. Even with my situation here I don’t want to withdraw from this fight. But the left is ENERGIZED by the ‘struggle’ and we get sick of it and pull out. That’s what I fear.

    Mustang…I left a meeting and got in the car JUST as Kavanaugh was beginning his presentation…..I only heard Ford for 30 minutes and none of the questioning, darn.

    I will say this: As I just came upstairs here during the break Kavanaugh asked for, I heard Baer on FOX say that they were all surprised there that REPUBLICANS ARE NOT QUESTIONING! ONLY the woman they hired to interrogate…WHY?
    My first thought was : ARE YOU SUCH WIMPS YOU COULDN’T ASK QUESTIONS, TOO? ARE ALL YOU REPUBLICAN MEN SO NERVOUS YOU MIGHT APPEAR INSENSITIVE YOU HAD TO GET A WOMAN TO ASK THE QUESTIONS YOU COULD HAVE HELPED KAVANAUGH WITH?

    I didn’t see Graham’s performance. What I did see was the entire majority of republicans relinquishing their responsibility in the process of consenting to a presidential nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States. In their place, they hired a female prosecutor who does not litigate in the court-room, and all of her questions were milquetoast. So where was Graham, Hatch, Lee, Cruz, and Sasse when Kavanaugh needed them most? I didn’t include Grassley because the man is a total wiener. Well, here’s what I think: no true red-blooded American will vote for any of those senators ever again. They disgraced themselves, they disgraced the US Senate, and the country is ashamed of them. Well, at least I am.

    Mustang…the Republicans ARE weighing in ….Graham just blew up. Grassley actually beautifullly protected Kavanaugh as that jerk Durbin kept saying “Will you look at the White House lawyer sitting next to you and tell him you want the FBI to investigate?” Obviously, Kavanaugh was really stalling…and Grassley came in and blew up, appropriately reading aloud the Biden quote from the Clarence Thomas hearings “The FBI does nothing but get facts, they DO NOT DECIDE”…excellent.
    I haven’t heard Cruz yet, but I THINK Hatch spoke…??
    THE FACT THAT THEY DIDN’T VOTE THE OTHER DAY IS STUPID AND YOU ARE SOOOO RIGHT ABOUT THAT, BUT I’M ADDRESSING THIS HEARING I’M LISTENING CAREFULLY TO.

    If no Republican will vote for a Republican senator again, we can kiss this country goodbye..

    Any Republican who doesn’t vote in November is a Republican I can’t speak to ever again. One doesn’t hand one’s country to the far Left because a few Republican senators are jerks (which they are, as you say!)

    Was off color today so stayed home and actually watched this excrement circus.

    Mustang (and everyone) Repubs were useless as usual, led by Otis Grimsley (Grassley) who could hardly make a point without pulling his pants down and kissing kamalla harris’s backside first.
    ………………………………….

    Bottom line (As is my preferred tact)

    Ford – Doesn’t remember shit, doesn’t know shit, still a california perfesser though. Typical beady eyed – ugly as an opossum at 51 ( my wife is 67 and looks 1000 times better) lying sack of shit defecrat activist.

    Brett Kavanaugh – KILLED IT ! In a good way. What he said should have made every defecrat in that hearing slink away like the vermin they are, but they didn’t proving they are sociopath. As it was he reduced the dems to the point of Begging him to ask for an FBI investigation that wouldn’t move the football 1000th of an inch downfield even on a good day.

    Anyone who watched this and side with the defecrats should have to wear an insignia that denotes they are legal kill 366 days of the year.

    Kid, TOTALLY agree with you………hoping you agree with some of my comments above on it. I really enjoyed watching it because the Left was SQUIRMING> But, it also REALLY hurt me to see Kavanaugh, such an obviously good guy, SO upset. When he said (and he’s right) “I love coaching and teaching more than anything in life and I may never do either again because of YOU!” (to the Dems), my heart broke.
    A man doesn’t CRY in public unless he’s been really holding it in and this stuff has REALLY got to him, poor man.

    I loved that KAVANAUGH got so many Dems to quit before their time was up!

    Well, after Ford’s testimony I blogged she looked credible but we hadn’t heard yet from Kavanaugh, but he really aced it.. He was even MORE credible, esp. when he said he doesn’t doubt having these things happen to her. Only that it wasn’t him, for sure. Thats a whole lot better than calling her a liar, esp. with the performance she gave (but he didn’t watch, per his statement). Justice calls for him to be confirmed NOW, before the left has time to buy even more “victims”.

    Years ago I actually listened to Geraldo from time to time. On occasion I’d think, “Damn, that was a powerful and penetrating insight” when he gave his analysis of someone or some thing in the news.

    Finally I decided that he’s just a schizoid attention whore who prefers the sound of his own voice to the sounds of all others’ . . . kinda like Shep Smith, or Rosie O’Donnell, or Joy Behar, or Bill O’Reilly.

    Just off the top of my head which s probably 10% of what I could lay down on Ford.

    She is afraid of flying but flies all over the place on vacation and for her oceanography hobby. Most of it over water.

    She doesn’t remember shit about anything that could be countered with BK’s calendar. She doesn’t remember shit about pretty much anything. What she doesn’t remember, she doesn’t understand, like what Senators actually coming to Her locale actually meant. “Yes, I know they offered to come to me but I didn’t know what that meant”. 2 questions total on the “polygraph”.
    College perfesser. Par for the course I guess.

    Enjoyed the last part of the hearing when the dems were so neutered and spayed by B K.’s opening that they were reduced to begging him to ask for a [useless] FBI investigation.

    See this is why I don’t watch this crap. Like I didn’t hate them enough already. But I happened to be home today. I’m going to have to lick my own butt for weeks to get the taste of this out of my mind.

    Being out of the country, I didn’t see any GOP questioning; only the female prosecutor’s questions. As I said, it was soft-soap from the beginning of that. And I did see the Democrats including the names of 12 other members of the American Psychotic Association identifying and supporting Christine Ford … wondering all the while, HUH?

    Given what Z has added in, I may have been too rash earlier. Here in the UK, all the BBC is talking about is how Trump’s presidency hinges on the senate’s approval of the Kavanaugh nomination, but of course the BBC is CNN-East. I will just say that no person should have to undergo the kind of low-ball politics that has been heaped on Thomas and Kavanaugh by the communist political machine … and I do think those GOP senators should have taken on the task of questioning Ford. That’s their job … and because the Ford accusation is such an affront to decency, I wanted to see these GOP senators defending their president’s nominee.

    Thanks for the updates, Z.

Always leftwing. No Conservative talk radio in either country. They ONLY hear the Left. I agree with you, and they’re apparently not smart enough to wake up OR, they’re like our media, and simply don’t WANT truth in the news if it doesn’t fit their politics. PRAVDA..
