    I am concerned about comments that Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has made regarding the Special Counsel and the parameters of his investigation. . . I believe that we should bring to the Senate floor legislation that would put restrictions on the ability of President Donald Trump to fire the Special Counsel.

    After a week of hate crimes by Trump’s brownshirts, a sitting GOP Senator tweets out a false account of Pelosi inciting violence. Republicans are killing us and lying about it and appeals to decency won’t work. Only using this platform for BOO-ms added, The whole party has the blood of innocent Jews on its hands now.

    Police and a hazmat team were on the scene at the Maine home of Sen. Susan Collins (R) on Monday. The Bangor Daily News reported that police were at the house on West Broadway in Bangor as police investigated what was described as a "suspicious letter." Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Collins, told The Hill that the senator was on her way home from Washington. Collins's husband, Thomas Daffron, is currently at the house, Clark said. UPDATE: Hayward Street closed near Sen. Susan Collins home. — Nit-Noi Ricker (@MaineNitNoi) October 15, 2018 Sgt. Wade Betters with the Bangor Police Department...

    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    The latest lowest of the low in public conversation was struck last week by the American Civil Liberties Union, for its television commercial of spliced-together video clips of former President Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby denying their sexual transgressions and linking them to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein and Charlie Rose. The ACLU's stated mission is "to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in the country by the Constitution and laws of the United States," and not so long ago, the ACLU was regarded as one of the brave guardians...
  • Senate defeats measure to overturn Trump expansion of non-ObamaCare plans

    The Senate on Wednesday defeated a Democratic measure to overrule President Trump’s expansion of non-ObamaCare insurance plans as Democrats seek to highlight health care ahead of the midterm elections. The Democratic measure would have overruled Trump’s expansion of short-term health insurance plans, which do not have to cover people with pre-existing conditions or cover a range of health services like mental health or prescription drugs. It was defeated on an extremely narrow, mostly party line 50-50 vote, with Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) voting with Democrats in favor of overturning the short-term plans. Republicans argue the short-term plans simply provide a...

    Two events from the last two days stand out. The first came Monday night with President Trump’s forceful yet compassionate speech at the swearing in of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The president opened with an extraordinary apology on behalf of the country to Kav­anaugh and his family “for the terrible pain and suffering” they endured during the historically brutal confirmation process. He said the unfounded allegations violated fairness and “the presumption of innocence.” Trump also tenderly addressed Kavanaugh’s young daughters, telling them “your father is a great man, a man of decency, character, kindness and courage.” The event...

    AFTER A 50-YEAR siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in last Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it. The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat. And the triumph is President Trump’s. To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high...

    Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) promised to raise $3 million to support Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to counteract anger over her vote to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "I'm going to help raise $3 million to match that," Grassley told Marth MacCallum during an interview on Fox News Tuesday, when asked what he thought of a fundraising effort against Collins in Maine that has raked in about $3 million. Collins has come under fire from many on the left for supporting Kavanaugh in a narrow confirmation vote, who was accused of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford and other women....

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-lifers are right to celebrate the failure of the smear campaign against Brett Kavanaugh. We wouldn’t have gotten a better nominee if President Trump had withdrawn him, and surrender would have not only demoralized the conservative base but taught leftists they can get away with anything. That being said, we can’t let our euphoria blind us to the fact that we don’t really know if our newest Supreme Court justice is the automatic anti-Roe vote the president promised us, and Susan Collins’ make-or-break speech Friday was actually a damning indictment of how little...

    In a speech announcing her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) reminded me of some of the great orators of the past. Her speech was measured in tone, substantive in content and delivered with conviction. Collins is no conservative. She has voted in favor of abortion and same-sex marriage while towing a more moderate line on economics. Her speech supporting Kavanaugh and denouncing the smears against him and the distortion of his judicial record was as good as any delivered by her more conservative colleagues. She correctly labeled the process that has become...

    Activists upset with Sen. Susan Collins’s vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh say they will inflict economic damage on the Republican senator's home state by boycotting Maine products and tourism. “Dear Susan Collins – I really struggled with this but my tourist $ just voted against ever visiting Maine while you remain in office,” actor and comedian John Fugelsang said Friday in a tweet that has since been deleted, according to the Portland Press Herald. The tweet garnered hundreds of comments saying they would join Fugelsang in the boycott, with one person canceling a $2,200 reservation at Point...

    Why can't we (MA) have a U.S senator like Susan Collins? Why can't our guys make a speech like that? After all, this is intellectual, sophisticated and progressive Massachusetts, not backwoods Maine. And Collins is from Caribou, of all places, not Cambridge. She is the descendant of lumberjacks, not professors. Instead we have one senator who has been in Washington so long that he lives there, not here. That is Sen. Eddie Markey of Chevy Chase, Maryland, who cannot put two sentences together unless they are written out for him. He called the FBI investigation into the unsubstantiated charges of...

    The Hill ^ | 10/08/18 | PETER SULLIVAN
    Democrats are planning to force a vote in the Senate this week on overturning a Trump administration rule expanding non-ObamaCare insurance plans. The Democratic resolution, which will likely get a vote on Wednesday, would overturn a rule finalized in August that expanded the availability of short-term health insurance plans. Democrats decry the plans as “junk” insurance because they does not need to cover pre-existing conditions or follow other ObamaCare rules. Republicans argue the plans provide a cheaper option alongside ObamaCare plans. The resolution, which is supported by all 49 Senate Democrats, is unlikely to pass given that it would need...

    On Friday morning, Senator Susan Collins of Maine said that she would declare later that afternoon whether she would confirm or oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. For the women who opposed Judge Kavanaugh, many of whom had traveled to Washington from all over the country, her decision was their last hope. By 2:30 p.m., half an hour before she was due to announce her decision, Collins’s office on the fourth floor of the Dirksen Senate building was filled with protesters, most of them women, and members of the press. The crowd was overflowing into the...

    The President of the University of Southern Maine is putting the brakes on a course that would have given students a college credit for protesting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Women’s Studies Professor Susan Feiner attempted to offer a “pop-up course” that would allow USM undergraduate students to take a free bus trip to Washington D.C. Wednesday night. They would have been traveling with protesters and sexual assault survivors asking Senator Susan Collins to oppose Kavanaugh. “This is an opportunity for students to see history in the making,” said Feiner. It’s not clear how many students received the email advertising...

    President Trump said Monday that he expects a lot of Democratic voters to support Republican candidates in the upcoming midterms because of how the party's lawmakers handled sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we’ll end up being Venezuela. This country would end up being Venezuela. I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting voting Republican on Nov. 6," Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for a law enforcement event in Florida.
