Got back from vacation and my new “USED” car came in. Shipped from Brainerd, Minnesota….I know it looks new, but it’s a one owner, 10 years old, with 37,000 verified miles!
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that all 100 senators will soon vote on President Donald Trump‘s embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, no matter what results from a closely watched Judiciary Committee set for Thursday.
‘Judge Kavanaugh will be voted on here on the Senate floor. Up or down on the Senate floor,’ an indignant McConnell said in a fiery speech.
‘This fine nominee to the Supreme Court will receive a vote in this Senate in the near future,’ he pledged.
Kavanaugh engaged in 31 hours of committee confirmation hearings. But two women have since leveled allegations of sexual assaults that they say happened more than 30 years ago, derailing his confirmation process.

How dare you not pay rapt attention to the Narcissist-in-Chief!
Barack Obama wasn’t happy those young whippersnappers apparently weren’t hanging on his every word (about himself) on Friday.
“I’m talking to you, young people!” he snapped, pointing his finger with a stern look at some kids attending his rally for Pennsylvania Democrats.
“You! Pay attention!” he lectured with the air of a disappointed parent.
During the Philadelphia appearance for Gov. Tom Wolf, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and several Democrat congressional candidates, Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself.
In the roughly 33-minute remarks, the former president said “I” 56 times, “Me” 5 times, and “My” 4 times, talking about himself a total of 65 times, or once about every 30 seconds.
Sounds like Senator Orrin Hatch has had it up to HERE with Senate Dems playing games with the SCOTUS confirmation process. He even seems sick and tired of the media supporting their games and vice versa.
Who knew Orrin would ever be our spirit animal?
This was an epic thread and takedown …
I just love Liz Wheeler!
Pretty much shows the total hypocrisy of the Dimocrats.
Senator McConnell also said that Kavanaugh will be voted on the Senate Floor–up or down on the Senate floor.
FOX News Shannon Bream reported: McConnell says: This is what the so-called resistance has become, a smear campaign plain and simple – aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate.

Read through all the bullshit and the woman can’t even remember who the person in question was, she just assumes it was Kavanaugh. This is all designed to pull away Collins and Murkowski. Once again, Republicans concerned with being fair and nice, blew it enabling Dem strategy to pull out more tricks.
Via New Yorker:
As Senate Republicans press for a swift vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Senate Democrats are investigating a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. The claim dates to the 1983-84 academic school year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale University. The offices of at least four Democratic senators have received information about the allegation, and at least two have begun investigating it. Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week and, in conversations with The New Yorker, expressed concern about its potential impact on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote. The Democratic Senate offices reviewing the allegations believe that they merit further investigation. “This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanaugh. It should be fully investigated,” Senator Mazie Hirono, of Hawaii, said. An aide in one of the other Senate offices added, “These allegations seem credible, and we’re taking them very seriously. If established, they’re clearly disqualifying.”
The woman at the center of the story, Deborah Ramirez, who is fifty-three, attended Yale with Kavanaugh, where she studied sociology and psychology. Later, she spent years working for an organization that supports victims of domestic violence. The New Yorker contacted Ramirez after learning of her possible involvement in an incident involving Kavanaugh. The allegation was conveyed to Democratic senators by a civil-rights lawyer. For Ramirez, the sudden attention has been unwelcome, and prompted difficult choices. She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.
Hoagie sandwich chain Taylor Gourmet will close all 19 of its outlets largely due to a decline in sales after its co-founder attended an event last year led by President Donald Trump, according to Washingtonian.
A Taylor Gourmet spokesperson confirmed the closures in the article. Seventeen locations are in D.C. and surrounding areas and two more are in Chicago.
Fortune was unable to reach Taylor Gourmet for comment.
While real estate costs, rapid expansion, and competition may have been factors, Washingtonian cites several company insiders who noted that sales dropped after co-founder Casey Patten was photographed with Trump. One said sales plummeted 40% the following day and “never recovered.” A Taylor Gourmet spokesperson said revenue rebounded.
Patten faced the backlash after an event in January 2017 with the president at the Small Business Administration. Taylor gave a short speech to Trump about how the food industry relies on immigrants and the American-born children of immigrants for staff, and Patten’s desire to reduce regulations that would affect his employees.
A D.C. neighborhood site, PoPville, posted an item about Patten’s attendance and a link to a photo. A social-media furor resulted.
Patten said later that he is “apolitical,” and he used his opportunity with the president to push small-business issues. President Barack Obama appeared at one of Taylor Gourmet’s outlets in 2012, and spoke about challenges facing small businesses with Patten and co-founder David Mazza.
Accuser of Brett Kavanaugh Makes Money from RU-486 Abortion Pills”
From Donna Garner
[Nobody knows how Brett Kavanaugh would vote as a Supreme Court Justice on issues surrounding abortion. However it is very likely that Christine Blasey Ford and the company for which she is a researcher (Corcept Therapeutics) do not want to take a chance. Kavanaugh might hurt their profits! Corcept Therapeutics manufactures and markets an abortion pill called “mifepristone” which is widely known as “RU-486.”
The article below written by Mike Adams is fully documented. Please make sure to look at the bios posted in the screen shot entitled “Consortium Core Faculty.” This clearly shows that Christine Blasey, Ph.D. is a Director of Biostatistics at Corcept Therapeutics and is a current professor at Palo Alto University.] – Donna Garner]
“Now the truth comes out: Blasey is a paid researcher for an abortion pill company with a lot to lose if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court.”

“Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey exposed for ties to Big Pharma abortion pill maker… effort to derail Kavanaugh is plot to protect abortion industry profits”
By Mike Adams
Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, who claims — without any evidence — that Kavanaugh inappropriately touched her at a drunken party while in high school, turns out to have ties to an abortion pill pharmaceutical company called Corcept Therapeutics [produces an abortion pill called “mifepristone” also referred to as RU-486].
This discovery brings to light an obvious conflict of interest in Blasey’s story, revealing that she works for a pharmaceutical company that manufacturers an abortion pill drug, whose profits could be strongly impacted by future Supreme Court decisions on abortion rights.
Corcept Therapeutics (Corcept.com) manufacturers and markets an abortion pill drug called mifepristone, and Christine Blasey Ford is a co-author of at least eight published scientific papers produced by the pharmaceutical giant to promote its pills. You can see Blasey’s name listed on several publications at this Corcept.com web page detailing their research papers.
Corcept Therapeutics, Inc., a $166 billion market cap company (stock symbol CORT) reportedly has current annual sales of $216 million. The company offers just one drug, mifepristone, which is widely known as an “abortion pill” or RU-486.
Christine Blasey Ford has claimed that four other people attended a small gathering at which she was allegedly assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh. Three of those people, PJ Smyth, Mark Judge, and Kavanaugh, have already denied any recollection of attending such a party.
On Saturday night, Leland Ingham Keyser, a classmate of Ford’s at the all-girls school Holton-Arms and her final named witness, denied any recollection of attending a party with Brett Kavanaugh.
“Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford,” lawyer Howard J. Walsh said in a statement sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
CNN reports that ” Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford’s.”
Keyser previously coached golf at Georgetown University and is now executive producer of Bob Beckel’s podcast. Keyser is the ex-wife of Beckel, a former Democratic operative and commentator. A search on OpenSecrets.org reveals Keyser’s only political donation has been to former Democratic senator Byron Dorgan.
Keyser’s denial, as a female lifelong friend and Ford’s last alleged witness, is the most consequential development that has occurred since Ford publicly stepped forward last Sunday and detailed her allegations to the Washington Post. Ford’s allegation of the 1982 incident was told to no one until a 2012 therapy session, when Kavanaugh was first touted in the media as the most likely GOP Supreme Court nominee.
All of Ford’s alleged witnesses of the party, both male and female, have now denied any recollection of attending such a party.
In written testimony sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee, a third named witness has rejected the allegations made by Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser. Having been asked by a Senate staffer to comment on the charges advanced against the nominee, a lawyer for Leland Ingham Keyser wrote:
Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.
Under 18 U.S.C § 1001, letters to the Judiciary Committee are subject to criminal penalty if false.
Ms. Keyer, whom CNN confirms is “a lifelong friend of Ford’s,” is the third named witness to deny any knowledge of the allegations. The other two, Mark Judge and Patrick Smyth, issued written statements to that effect earlier in the week. Thus far, nobody has backed up the account advanced by Kavanaugh’s accuser, while Kavanaugh and three other named witnesses have rejected it outright.

A team of 911 dispatchers in Borger has a new four-legged friend that’s making their jobs a little easier— Sergeant Squelch.
Assistant Administrator for Municipal Court and Dispatch, Nicole Riggle, said the three-month old pup isn’t living in the average home, but has found his forever home with the dispatch team.
“He came from the Borger Animal Shelter. He was brought to us by one of the workers there, she was just bringing him by to kind of visit and it kind of just hit it off from there,” she said.
Squelch eats, plays and sleeps at the Borger Regional Communications Center.
“Between all of us we take him for walks, we take him out to go to the bathroom when he needs, he’s so good with that,” said Riggle. “He knows when to go to the door whenever it’s time. He needs to go, he’ll go to the door. There’s a little park behind our building and so he goes and plays, runs around. Some of us have brought our kids up here to play with him so he’s accustomed to kids and people.”
The dispatcher team in Borger answers 911 calls for all of Hutchinson County.
Riggle said Sergeant Squelch is a perfect fit for an atmosphere that can become highly stressful in an instant.
“Before him, the stress relief, you would just have to just have to get up and leave the room,” she said. “Because there’s calls that can come in and it can be nice and smooth and everything can change in the blink of an eye. You never know what your next call’s going to be.”
Here is a closer look. Katz is wearing a radical Socialist T-shirt.
Debra Katz, the attorney for Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, is not just a partisan Democrat, she is The Resistance.
Katz has built her legal career on agitation of sexual harassment claims through very high profile cases. She is a committed activist on issues of discrimination. She is as likely to show up holding a sign of protest as she is wearing courtroom attire.
Katz protested the appointment of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General (we are on the same page with that!), and she regularly protests in favor of DACA and equates immigration orders to Islamophobia. Her protest of Sessions was caught on camera where she stated:
“We are going to fight back,” she told a reporter. “We are going to resist. We will not be silenced.”
What people on the Right need to understand is that these people have been at this for decades. They are light years ahead of any conservatively-minded constituents. Katz is a classic example of one steeped in social activism since at least law school. Who wouldn’t expect to have honed her skills to such a sharp point by this time?

Democrats know if they delay the Kavanaugh vote for another week his confirmation process will be over.
Tucker Carlson explained the senate procedure on his Friday show.
Tucker Carlson: Here are the basic facts about it. According to the original schedule most of us assumed was real two weeks ago the senate should have already voted on the nomination by now and Kavanaugh almost certainly would have been confirmed. He had the numbers. And then the wrinkle. Democrats leaked the name of Christine Ford to the press. For alleges that sometime back in high school, about 36 year ago, Kavanaugh jumped on her at a party and groped her over her clothes. She’s provided very few details including when and where it allegedly happened. Kavanaugh has denied the story entirely and so has the other person Ford said was present, a man named Mark Judge. That’s pretty much what we know. In order to know more we’re going to need to hear from Christine Ford. But both sides once agreed on that because it’s obvious she should have a chance to speak. Everyone thought that was a good idea. It was a consensus view. Republicans in the senate asked for her to testify this week, she refused. They offered to send a staff to her house in California to take her testimony privately and she refused that too. Finally they asked her to testify this coming Monday, she said she won’t but she won’t explain why she won’t. Ford’s attorneys now say she’s willing to explain herself in the senate next Thursday.
Thursday is a significant date in this story. Because of senate rules which are complex, if Ford testifies next Thursday the vote on Kavanaugh will be pushed back at least another week. In this environment that very well means – forever. His nomination will be over.
And So will any Trump nomination to the court. There is a time before the midterms for the White House to introduce and vet a new candidate. Democrats will have prevented the president from filling this vacancy. We’ll have just eight justices for the foreseeable future. And probably until there is another Democratic president. You may have voted for Trump in hope that he would put reasonable people on the Supreme Court. But it may now never happen!
