Thank You, Mitch McConnell!

Without you, and despite all of the hate many of the CF'ers here have thrown at you, (and I've got several issues with you myself), Merrick Garland would be a SCOTUS Justice instead of Neil Gorsuch and we'd have lost all of the recent SCOTUS decisions!

Trump is going to seat a minimum of three judges before he is through which will effectively neuter the Liberal /Socialists in this country. If anyone ever doubted there was a God, the Trump Experiment ascension is proof positive that God favors our Republic and approves of His name on our money.

of course Kavanaugh. He said that indicting a standing president would be devastating to the federal government. Perfect for whats coming trumps way. He wanted an insurance policy for when the crap hits the proverbial fan. no surprise in the pick. And he'll get congressional approval too. Mazel.

From: JL

This may actually be a two-fer for Prez Trump. If Kavanaugh does get confirmed, that will create an opening on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals....and I believe Prez Trump gets to pick that replacement too.

President Trump stated very clearly in 2016 he would appoint Justices in the mold of Scalia and Thomas. Stated he would appoint originalists. He has done that very thing, once again proving himself a man of his word as he continues to lead with a strong conservative flare. In comparison Parasite Obama did and Hilda would have appointed far to the left radical judicial activists. Next time we will be saying Justice Barrett! Thank you President Trump!!

Dick Durbin to Democrats: Sacrifice Your Senate Seats to Vote Against Trump's Supreme Court Nominee, Whoever It Is

Interesting that the left understands that the game of electioneering is secondary to securing actual policy victories, many on the right continue to insist on the contradictory claims that 1, only winning offices matter, and it doesn't matter if winning candidates sell the movement out after winning, and 2, that to prove our personal "principles" and integrity, we should give the Presidency to Hillary Clinton and the Supreme Court to the left...

If Democrats play politics and try to stall the confirmation until after midterms that’s BS. Just as it was BS for republicans stalling Obama’s nomination IMO. With that said, Trump was elected by the people and his nomination should stand based on the qualifications of the nominee. If Democrats don’t like it then more of them should have got off there butts and voted in the last election. I’m not a fan of Trump at all but he is my elected president and it is his right to nominate someone for the Supreme Court of HIS choosing. That’s the way it works. If you are an American first and a political party (liberal/conservative) second then you accept the Presidents power that is given to him by the Constitution. Anyone complaining about this nomination is a day late and a dollar short. Simply a whiner in my book.

Man, that really hurt to say...lol.

So how long are you willing to stand behind that statement? 6 months...1,2,3,4,5,10,20 years stalling nominations is ok? And please don’t give me that “as long as my side wins”stuff. The constitution gives the president the authority to nominate and the senate to confirm. McConnell wouldn’t allow confirmation hearings. It should have got a vote in the Senate. Let the qualification of the candidate be voted on as intended. I don’t remember the constitution giving the power of the Supreme Court nomination to the Senate majority leader. But that’s what happened. They did it and it worked so to-shay. I still think it’s BS but we can agree to disagree.

Kavanaugh has been in Washington for a long time and I am concerned that he may have a swampy underbelly but I will try to be patient. It will take Soros-Demons a while to go through all his work delaying things, and with so much work they will surely find things to twist and spin. Confirmation could still be very tough. If it is not I will be more suspicious.....

10-Jul-18
“Kavanaugh has been in Washington for a long time”

Then HE has a LOT of dirt on those who wish to sling mud upon him. It will be interesting to see. I’m quite sure every scenario has been played out well before the announcement, and he could also just be a pawn to get to the next (read that as real) pick.

10-Jul-18
He may not have been the smartest choice. he has a 12 year paper trail of decisions as an appeals judge that will be used against him and this has hurt scotus nominees in the past with extensive judicial records. He is also known for his opinion that no president should ever be indicted and that there is absolute presidential immunity....which is a little scary. He is going to be hard to get past the senate.

From: Trax
10-Jul-18
Kavanaugh has not been a politician. He has been a judge. I see little importance. His 300 decisions are what is telling, and he has been a staunch conservative. I believe he will be very Gorsuch like, with a flair like Scalia had. Excellent choice.

But we knew the choice would be a good one. Every single person listed of the 25 or so would have been a good choice. President Trump once again fulfilling a campaign promise and proving the direction he knows this country needs to go.

His qualifications are without question. The stinking liberals led by "Smilin Possum" Schumer will play their political game in an attempt to rile and rally their pathetic base. In the end Kavanaugh will be confirmed with a vote or three to spare.

Justice Barrett or Justice Lee next for President Trump!

From: Trax
10-Jul-18
I would add when Rehnquist, Scalia, and Thomas were first nominated there were some conservatives who questioned their true conservatism and feared they may be ones who would veer to the left once on the big bench.

Kavanaugh would not have been on the list had the Federalist Society not thought of him as a conservative and originalist. The Heritage Foundation elated with the pick. Again, any of the choices on the list of 25 or so would have been a good one.

Kavanaugh is a committed textualist with a long record in both opinion and decision to back that up. I do look more forward to President Trump's next pick. We have to remember, it isn't just the Supreme Court. Conservative judges are being placed by President Trump on the lower courts too. Thank God for that.

Bar, I’m a life long resident of Kansas. I grew up in franklin county in a small town My first job was on bucking hay and milking cows. My family is from Goodland and still farm there today. I spend a week out there every year bow hunting mulies. I’m independent and left on many social issues. Conservative on others. Many of my extended family are conservatives and we respect each other’s opinion on different issues. I don’t conform or defender Democrat or Republican platforms and form my own opinions regardless of party. Questioning my resident status in Kansas is supposed to be a comeback. I get it. There are many like you around here.

For anyone to think only the left is a hate group or that a few like antifa represent all of those who are left is disingenuous or ignorant. Should I lump you in with neo-Nazis. Both antifa and neo-nazis are extremes and have no place in our society IMO.

11-Jul-18
KS,

Obviously you are googling for negatives, that is why you keep getting the NYT as your source.

11-Jul-18
Ks, first example: "... local police told CNN. It was not clear what, if anything, prompted the attack. The assault reportedly did not cause serious injuries."

Find the follow up, answer the obvious question, and maybe......but it is most likely that there was more to the story and, way more important, it wasnt condoned by half the party, as is the case with Soros-Demons.

Number two, "...The girl was waving an anti-fascist placard last week at a protest against Shariah law in Midtown Manhattan when a scuffle broke out and she knocked an older woman to the ground."

Seems like the commie attacked the old lady with her sign and the big guy just stopped her.

Number three: "A study published on Friday appears to confirm what news reports suggested long ago: President Trump’s campaign rallies were associated with a rise in violence when they came to town."

OF COURSE!! The Soros-Demons PAID people to go there and riot!! These problems are NOT on Trump people!

Number four: The operative word is "... linked..." followed by loooong reaches to insinuate some culpability for Trump people, who Trump has most likely never even met no less.

WEAK shit, Ks, at best it is very weak, totally unlike the fact that we know Soros and his Demons recruited, via Craigslist, rioters, transported them, housed them, fed them, and encouraged them to riot on every occasion!

Sure, they may be someviolent people who supported trump in some way but that is not the MO of the party, as it is for the Demons.

From: KSflatlander
11-Jul-18
I'm glad you brought up my sources. So you want me to find a negative story about right wing conservative violence on Fox News, Brietbart, or InfoWars because those are credible sources? Good luck with that. Why don't you try to find a negative story about violent conservative groups on those source and then try to find a negative story about liberal hate groups using MSNBC, NYT, and Buzzfeed. That is really the point. There is hate on both sides but if you only get your information from all right wing or all left wing sources you will find what you are looking for.

Television viewers prefer Fox News for political coverage above all other cable news networks and trust CNN the least among them, according to a recent poll.

The Rasmussen poll shows that, when Americans were asked what channels they turn to "at least occasionally" for political news, Fox News took the top spot with 42 percent saying they watch the channel. Competitors CNN and MSNBC fell short with 35 percent and 19 percent, respectively.

The poll also asked how viewers trust the political news from each of the cable networks. Fox News again took the top spot, with 50 percent of respondents saying they trust the network's political news. Fourty-three percent of MSNBC viewers said the same, and only 33 percent of those who tune into CNN said they trust the news network.

Rasmussen Reports also found that 75 percent of likely American voters watch cable news "at least occasionally" for some of their news reception.

For the poll, Rasmussen contacted 1,000 likely voters on Jan. 2.

KS,

The WSJ reported on the violence at the Trump rallies, and most of it was started by hooligans looking for trouble. I have not been a fan of FOX or Breitbart, until recently. I admit they are definitely right leaning, but I have become more so after dealing directly with people on the left.

For example, immediately after the killings in the newspaper offices, a liberal colleague posted on FB that it looked like it has begun, but only one side was shooting. I admonished him publicly for drawing a conclusion without the facts being released.

After it became apparent this was a disgruntled nut upset about losing a lawsuit and it had nothing to do with politics, I was told I took my colleague's statement out of context. I was later un-friended from his FB, thankfully.

I also debated immigration policy, and because I do not believe in open borders was immediately called a racist, again by admitted democrat/socialists. I do not observe conservatives result to calling folks names, I see them stick to the issues and try to win based on logic. Yes, Jeff at times would prove that last statement wrong:) We all witness other conservatives asking Jeff to tone it down, myself included.

I consult several sources, and have colleagues who send me articles from the NYT. It is easy to rip apart most of their junk as it is based on emotion and not rational thought process, IMHO.

You are conducting yourself superbly here, amen to that. We just happen to be on opposite sides. Again, I will ask of any specific examples of a campus suffering significant financial loss due to any conservatives rioting. At least we are willing to show our faces. Thanks.

What I like about Trump best, and please note that I consider him a very crass individual, is his style has made challenging the extreme political correctness in our country an OK thing to do. Hopefully this is the beginning of the end to a madness that has permeated public discourse for too long, and at too high a sacrifice for the values originalists cherish, that all people are created equal and that our own efforts are what is most important to the outcomes we experience.

Sorry Habitat, I’m out on this one. No matter what example I come up with there will be some excuse as to why it’s a bad source, didn’t happen, not true, or not a conservative group. Can’t have a discussion if nobody wants to listen. To say all liberals hate is just untrue on its face without a single source.

Yes we are on opposite sides but you sound like a reasonable guy. I’m ok with just disagreeing. If that means you or JTV “wins” I’m good with that too. That’s now why I post.

Kavanaugh Threatens The Left’s Right to Cheat

The fact that the media responded to the nomination of a Supreme Court justice by obsessively covering Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Russia and NATO proves that Trump has checkmated them with Brett Kavanaugh.

Liberals know they can’t stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation, so they’d just as soon not hear any news about it at all. Please cheer us up with stories about Paul Manafort’s solitary confinement!

But there was one very peculiar reaction to the nomination. The nut wing of the Democratic Party instantly denounced Kavanaugh by claiming that his elevation to the high court would threaten all sorts of “rights.”

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., tweeted: “Our next justice should be a champion for protecting & advancing rights, not rolling them back — but Kavanaugh has a long history of demonstrating hostility toward defending the rights of everyday Americans.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., tweeted: “If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court it will have a profoundly negative effect on workers’ rights, women’s rights and voting rights for decades to come. We must do everything we can to stop this nomination.”

If only these guys could get themselves elected to some sort of legislative body, they could pass laws protecting these rights!

Wait, I’m sorry. These are elected United States senators. Of all people, why are they carrying on about “rights”? If senators can’t protect these alleged “rights,” it can only be because most Americans do not agree that they should be “rights.”

That’s exactly why the left is so hysterical about the Supreme Court. They run to the courts to win their most unpopular policy ideas, gift-wrapped and handed to them as “constitutional rights.”

What liberals call “rights” are legislative proposals that they can’t pass through normal democratic processes — at least outside of the states they’ve already flipped with immigration, like California.

Realizing how widely reviled their ideas are, several decades ago the left figured out a procedural scam to give them whatever they wanted without ever having to pass a law. Hey! You can’t review a Supreme Court decision!

Instead of persuading a majority of their fellow citizens, they’d need to persuade only five justices to invent any rights they pleased. They didn’t have to ask twice. Apparently, justices find it much funner to be all-powerful despots than boring technocrats interpreting written law.

Soon the court was creating “rights” promoting all the left’s favorite causes — abortion, criminals, busing, pornography, stamping out religion, forcing military academies to admit girls and so on.

There was nothing America could do about it.

OK, liberals, you cheated and got all your demented policy ideas declared “constitutional rights.” But it’s very strange having elected legislators act as if they are helpless serfs, with no capacity to protect “rights.”

It’s stranger still for politicians to pretend that these putative “rights” are supported by a majority of Americans. By definition, the majority does not support them. Otherwise, they’d already be protected by law and not by Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s latest newsletter.

On MSNBC, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said people storming into the streets and making their voices heard about Kavanaugh is “the remarkable part about a democracy.”

Actually, that isn’t democracy at all. Liberals don’t do well at democracy. Why don’t politicians run for office promising to ban the death penalty, spring criminals from prison or enshrine late-term abortion? Hmmm … I wonder why those “I (heart) partial-birth abortion!” T-shirts aren’t selling?

Unless the Constitution forbids it — and there are very few things proscribed by the Constitution — democracy entails persuading a majority of your fellow Americans or state citizens to support something, and then either putting it on the ballot or electing representatives who will write it into law — perhaps even a constitutional amendment.

Otherwise, these “rights” whereof you speak are no more real than the Beastie Boys’ assertion of THE RIGHT TO PARTEEEEEEEE!

Gay marriage, for example, was foisted on the country not through ballot initiatives, persuasion, public acceptance, lobbying or politicians winning elections by promising to legalize it. No, what happened was, in 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Court suddenly discovered a right to gay marriage lurking in the state’s 223-year-old Constitution — written by the very religious John Adams. (Surprise!)

After that, the people rose up and banned gay marriage in state after state, even in liberal bastions like Oregon and California. The year after the Massachusetts court’s remarkable discovery, gay marriage lost in all 11 states where it was on the ballot.

Everywhere gay marriage was submitted to a popular vote, it lost. (Only one state’s voters briefly seemed to approve of gay marriage — Arizona, in 2006 — but that was evidently a problem with the wording of the initiative, because two years later, the voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional ban on gay marriage.)

Inasmuch as allowing people to vote resulted in a resounding “NO!” on gay marriage, liberals ran back to the courts. Still, the public rebelled. The year after the Iowa Supreme Court concocted a right to gay marriage, voters recalled three of the court’s seven justices.

A handful of blue state legislatures passed gay marriage laws, but even in the Soviet Republic of New York, a gay marriage bill failed in 2009.

And then the U.S. Supreme Court decided that was quite enough democracy on the question of gay marriage! It turned out that — just like the Massachusetts Constitution — a gay marriage clause had been hiding in our Constitution all along!

Conservatives could never dream of victories like this from the judiciary. Even nine Antonin Scalias on the Supreme Court are never going to discover a “constitutional right” to a border wall, mass deportations, a flat tax, publicly funded churches and gun ranges, the “right” to smoke or to consume 24-ounce sugary sodas.

These are “constitutional rights” every bit as much as the alleged “constitutional rights” to abortion, pornography, gay marriage, transgender bathrooms, the exclusionary rule and on and on and on.

The only rights conservatives ever seek under the Constitution are the ones that are written in black and white, such as the freedom of speech and the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Mostly, we sit trembling, waiting to see what new nonexistent rights the court will impose on us, contravening everything we believe.

So when you hear liberals carrying on about all the “rights” threatened by Kavanaugh, remember that by “rights,” they mean “policy ideas so unpopular that we can’t pass a law creating such rights.”

No one said "all" - quit spinning KS.

There are TONS of examples of lefties claiming that all righties are haters, racists, bigots, killers, mysoginists, etc., etc.. It seems to happen regularly on social media and certainly at every lefty protest.

My own BIL, who knows very well I am not a racist still called me one repeatedly because I would not vote for Obama!!!

Trublu,

I agree with what you said but I am astounded that there are not more liberals who speak out against the violence or even the words of Fonda and Waters. Should we assume they are OK with it?

To me it is akin to the criticism against the vast majority of Muslims that we heard when most remained silent on the terrorism. I remember discussions centered on did this mean they supported it, or were to afraid to speak out?

I would like to see tons more left leaners distance themselves from this behavior. I remember Tim McVay, I was glad he got what was coming to him, and I remember just about everyone I knew calling him a nut job, immediately. I do see a double standard.

12-Jul-18
I think most reasonable Democrats, yes there are a few, Dershowitz comes to mind, are afraid to admit to their friends and relations that they disagree because they immediately become the recipient of all the hate.

On the upside, there is the #justwalkaway movement growing daily!

Rosenstein should be fired for his political interference that clearly breach his scope of duties, and for the many examples of blatant incompetence he has exhibited throughout his tenure as Deputy Attorney General.

And if Jeff Sessions follows thru with his recent threats to resign his AG seat if Rosenstein is fired, then I'd call that a major win-win for this nation....

Fire Rosenstein!!!
