Republicans Have A Choice: Vote To Confirm Kavanaugh Or Get Slaughtered In November
The Federalist ^ | 9/24/2018 | Sean Davis

Posted on 09/24/2018 9:24:09 AM PDT by mojito

The rubber is about to meet the road for Senate Republicans. They have a simple choice: they can vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, thereby ending the baseless and unsubstantiated Democrat- and media-fueled smear campaign against him, or they can kiss House and Senate majorities goodbye for the next decade, if not longer.

[....]

A refusal to vote to confirm Kavanaugh in the face of a blatantly obvious Democrat smear campaign, orchestrated in concert with a compliant and obscenely partisan national media, will be strike three, and there will be no more at-bats. I have spent a career working in and covering politics, and I have never witnessed the kind of anger among rank-and-file GOP voters generated from a combination of the unsubstantiated Democrat attacks on Kavanaugh and the flaccid response of emasculated Republicans.

The stakes of the current battle over Kavanaugh are far bigger than a single Supreme Court seat, and Republican voters understand this, even if their elected lawmakers don’t. It’s bigger than Roe v. Wade, Obamacare, or Second Amendment rights. Democrats are trying to turn the rule of law on its head, to destroy the presumption of innocence — not for themselves, mind you, but for anyone who dares to oppose their totalitarian political agenda.

From Paul Sperry’s piece in the NY Post:

“This spring, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign press secretary Brian Fallon hired one of Feinstein’s top aides on the Judiciary Committee to help tank Trump’s Supreme Court picks from the outside. Together, he and Feinstein’s aide — former deputy general counsel Paige Herwig — launched a liberal nonprofit group called Demand Justice to lead the left’s attack on GOP nominees....”

“Blasey Ford’s lead attorney, Debra Katz, at the same time heads a leftist advocacy group funded by liberal megadonor George Soros, who also is funding Demand Justice, which has raised $5 million to sink Trump’s high court picks...”

https://nypost.com/2018/09/22/how-feinstein-is-conspiring-to-destroy-kavanaugh/

So Soros funded “Demand Justice” last spring no doubt got an email list of possible Kavenaugh classmates, and probably emailed each asking for rumors. Some responded with rumors, made up or not. Then they went digging, and set this whole thing up. Spent 6 days working on the drunk Peurto Rican anti-Trump social justice warrior.

If the FBI gets involved, they better arrest Soros.

But people will also be disgusted at the Democrats too. Could hurt them as much as the Republicans.

"...or they can kiss House and Senate majorities goodbye for the next decade..."

And that is just what the Repubs want - cushy jobs and never have to do any hard work. Simple when you're the minority party.

Probably so but the real issue is Kavenaugh is a good man. I don’t want my country run by Michael Avenetti.

So, if Susan Collins and Jeff Flake don’t support him, that means Ted Cruz should be punished. Sound logic.

Just heard it myself.... Just exactly what I and others have been posting. We took some hits for doing so, but the truth is the truth. I don’t blame the dems.... I blame Grassley. He needs to stand up and call this whole thing for what it is. If Ford doesn’t show under his rules... hold a vote that day. He should announce it now.

Yeah, well the problem is that a number of “Republicans” would be happy to get slaughtered in November. Flake, Collins, Murkowski, and others hiding in the weeds, are really Democrats masquerading as Republicans. If they think they can get away with gumming up the works (and still keep their political or lobbying careers viable), they will be happy to do so.

This is truly what it comes down to: A matter of whether Republicans in the House and Senate want to preserve their jobs -- and their legislative power -- more than they do not like the fact that President Trump does not act like a "normal politician".

What's sad is that what is best for our Republic -- for our Constitution -- does not appear to hold much sway into their political calculations.

Incorrect, Flake, Corker and Collins have a choice. Screw Trump and get slaughtered or vote yes. Flake is a Mccain clone. Flake might do what Mccain did on the obamacare vote. Mccain voted to screw Americans just to get back at Trump. Flake is certainly capable of this.

The conservative base is not about to let Democrats back in if they can help it. That guarantees a catastrophe for the country.

These issues are going to have to be handled in the primaries...We either vote for the most conservative or have to vote for whatever republican candidate there is...

We CAN’T vote for a friggin’ democrat!!!!!!!
