    Now that so many Democrats are convinced that Roseanne Barr is a racist, will they try to convince her to run for Robert Byrd’s old Senate seat? In 2005, the Washington Post reported the following:… a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. After Byrd had collected the $10 joining fee and $3 charge for a robe and hood from every applicant, the “Grand Dragon” for the mid-Atlantic states came down to tiny Crab Orchard, W.Va., to officially organize the chapter.Also known as...

    Voters in Alabama, West Virginia and Oregon will cast their ballots in November against or in support of bills amending their states abortion laws. Alabamas proposed constitutional amendment, Statewide Amendment 2, will ask voters to affirm that the constitution of this state does not protect the right to abortion or require the funding of abortion. It would also recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children. The real aim is to ban abortion, but thats not what you see in the language. This is just very broad. We have seen some split among conservatives...

    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, Collinss 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...

    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 well 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.

    (CNN) -- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Republican Party will still challenge Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia despite his help confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. "We appreciate his vote for Judge Kavanaugh," the Kentucky senator said Sunday on CBS's "Face The Nation." "I think it was the right thing to do. But we're trying to win seats." While McConnell said he appreciates Manchin's support, he also pointed out that he is "still a Democrat." McConnell, like other Republicans, has harped on what he calls a "mob" of left-wing protesters as an issue in the...

    President Trump revealed Saturday that he had asked Montana Sen. Steve Daines (R) to take time off to attend his daughter's wedding over the weekend, causing him to miss a confirmation vote for Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's Supreme Court nominee. The president tweeted Saturday afternoon following Kavanaugh's successful confirmation in the Senate that he advised Daines to skip the vote once Republicans learned that they had the necessary number of votes to prevail. "I have asked Steve Daines, our great Republican Senator from Montana, to attend his daughter Annies wedding rather than coming to todays vote," Trump wrote on Twitter shortly...

    Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins -- a key swing-vote whose dramatic floor speech on Friday assured Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court -- revealed on Sunday that she initially thought Kavanaugh "perhaps needed to withdraw" after she heard Christine Blasey Ford's "very compelling and painful" testimony. But then, Collins said, "When [Kavanaugh] came back with a forceful denial, the anger and anguish he showed, and then the lack of corroboration, led me back to the fundamental issues to our legal system." Both Ford and Kavanaugh testified at length in late September before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford alleged that...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) challenged Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) on Sunday to name one person from President Donald Trump's list of potential Supreme Court justices that he finds acceptable. "This is a list that was compiled in November, but he actually put it out during the campaign," Graham told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace, as he held up the list. "Twenty something people on this list, asking Chuck Schumer, name five, name three, name one that would be okay with you." Schumer and fellow Democrats tried to pressure Trump and Republicans to withdraw then Supreme...

    The Week ^ | October 4, 2018 | Brendan Morrow
    Brett Kavanaugh may have the support of at least one Democratic senator. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) now seems to be leaning towards voting "yes" on Kavanaugh, according to a new report from Politico, which also says Manchin "certainly is gettable" for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). Kavanaugh needs at least 50 votes to be confirmed (Vice President Mike Pence would break the tie), and since there are 51 Republicans in the Senate, a "yes" vote from Manchin could make up for a "no" vote from another swing senator like Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) or Susan Collins (R-Maine). President Trump clearly...

    Senate Republican leaders pressed on Tuesday to wrap up the confirmation of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, seizing on word from the F.B.I. that it would complete its investigation into allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct as early as Wednesday. Well have an F.B.I. report this week, and well have a vote this week, an emphatic Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, told reporters after the Republicans weekly policy luncheon. But Mr. McConnells promise was as much about bluffing as it was about confidence, giving the nomination an air of inevitability even as five...

    West Virginia residents pressed Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin this weekend about whether he would vote in favor of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. At the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival parade in Milton on Sunday, the senator marched alongside voters who asked him one after the other if he planned on voting or urged him to vote for Kavanaugh. Manchin would only say that he would have a final answer to those questions by the end of the week. One parade-goer continually shouted Kavanaughs name, and Manchin would only say, Thank you. Another yelled out, Vote Kavanaugh! and Manchin responded,...
