Collins, Kavanaugh, and the
Rewards of ‘Moderation’

American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 9/14/2018 5:04:21 AM

We have all seen those grisly stories in the news about people who adopt dangerous predators as pets only to be torn limb from limb by the very creatures they have cosseted for years. This is analogous to what is now happening to Susan Collins. The Maine Senator has frequently curried favor with the left by taking “principled stands” against her fellow Republicans on issues like Obamacare, and basked in the praise of progressives. Collins presumably thought this meant she was safe from the left’s innate brutishness when she took a perfectly reasonable position regarding SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Voting for the lesser of two evils always gets you more evil.
We,the people,have never needed the guidance,wisdom and intellectual superiority of the cluelessly compromised weak willed and morally bankrupt "moderates"...

This is the perfect analogy.

Despite her “Republican” credentials, Ms. Collins is a liberal. Hence, she’s able to take “principled” stands against her friends because she “feels” certain things.

It’s a shame she’s grown so old and stayed so dumb.

"it is extraordinary to me that people would want to participate in trying to essentially buy a Senator’s vote."

Hahahahaha - This is hilarious. Half of the Senate would be shocked to hear this statement and the other half would be running scared. How else do they end up rich and corrupted after a couple of terms?

Collins is losing her faculties. Her head was shaking uncontrollably in the same way that Hillary shakes. She won´t be with us much longer and we can find a real conservative to replace her. She has done us as much damage as the recently departed war hero.

FTA: “And it is extraordinary to me that people would want to participate in trying to essentially buy a Senator’s vote.”

Got a good early morning belly laugh outta that one! Don’t even bother denying buying votes is an anomaly. We all know that money is the major motivator in how our dedicated public servants will vote. Influence peddling is the grease that facilitates the movement of the gears in our corrupt government.

Evidently, our esteemed FBI is not interested in extortion being committed on a sitting member of the Senate any longer. Since they have gotten into the sedition business, they really have no time or inclination to actually investigate extortion. Looks like Susan is on her own.

A few million here, a few million there then senators make their real money by becoming lobbyists. Unfortunately for Susan she is too old for that kind of work and her position in the middle of the road only gets people hit by cars. Good luck keeping them off your back, sweety, your career path just nosedived.

There is a better than even chance that Collins will bow to the left again, but with a few Dems and Pence in the tiebreaker, Kavanaugh will win the vote.

Ayn Rand had a thing to say that both Collins and the late ´Maverick´ & the rest of the Rino herd,should have been made to memorize;


"There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil. The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice. But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway. In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. "

The Republican Senate has the votes to confirm Kavanagh. If any of the closet-Democrats chose to raise their ugly heads, and defect, the Republican party is dead. There is no excuse not to confirm Kavanagh. The Republican party is suppose to be an acceptable alternative to the Democratic party. If too many of them side with the Democrats, what use are they? The Republican party is useless if it cannot stand apart from the Democrats.

The Kavanaugh hearings should have erased any doubts about the true nature of the Senate. As currently constituted, it is nowhere near the "august deliberative body" it purports to be. It is a Club for Clowns. That includes Spartacus as well as McConnell. Virtually all are despicable little twerps who never held a real job but sucked off the public trough for most of their lives. Any doubts? Look into the "Stock Act" to understand how they voted to give themselves insider trading rights. That is how they all come in poor and leave rich. It is a joke....

Fight for Democratic leader is a
battle for party’s future
The Hill, by Douglas E. Schoen    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/19/2018 4:27:00     Post Reply
There is a fight now for the soul of the Democratic Party. That fight runs through the contest for the next speaker of the House, between former speaker and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and the former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Marcia Fudge of Ohio. While only as many as 20 incoming and incumbent House Democrats have said that they will oppose Pelosi, this maneuvering within the party does raise the possibility, under the arcane voting rules by which representatives can vote for a candidate or simply vote as present, that Pelosi may be denied

As expected, Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives. But the much-anticipated "blue wave" failed to appear. History shows that the first midterm election for the party in the White House usually results in a loss, often a big loss, in that party´s House members. President Barack Obama, for example, lost 63 seats in the House and 6 seats in the Senate in the 2010 midterms. (Snip) The 2018 GOP House lost seats, more than the 23 seats Democrats needed to flip, but not nearly the thumping the Democrats hoped for.

What do Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, and Bill Nelson have in common? Each asked the voters for important positions of leadership and promptly proved themselves unworthy of those offices when the answer was “No.” It isn’t necessary, of course, to revisit Gore’s reluctant acceptance of reality or Clinton’s querulous hypocrisy. The tawdry details of those episodes are well known. But the long-term harm they wrought on the republic merits consideration. The extent of that damage was demonstrated Friday, when Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams finally admitted that the laws of mathematics could not be overcome by frivolous lawsuits.

So it looks like Michael Avenatti has been busted for busting some woman’s face. The Los Angeles Police Department, not a Trump stronghold, arrested him on Wednesday on charges of felony domestic violence. According to TMZ, a publication that somehow not only breaks the inside scoops on these outlier celebrity incidents, but that also has emerged as a consistently more reliable and trustworthy source of honest news than are CNN or other Left Media outlets, Pornography’s Lawyer is alleged to have left his alleged victim with a “swollen and bruised” face punctuated by “red marks” on both her cheeks.

   

 



 
´Nelson has no path´: Democrats
admit Scott beats Florida icon

Sen. Bill Nelson has run out of time, run out of favorable court rulings and is about to officially run out of votes. After losing to Gov. Rick Scott on Election Day, losing after an automatic recount and appearing to not make up the gap following a manual recount Friday, Nelson’s campaign was dealt a mortal blow later that evening by U.S. District Judge Mark E. Walker, who crushed the Democrat’s last major hope by upholding a Florida law that forbids county election offices from counting vote-by-mail ballots received after 7 p.m. Election Day.“It’s done.

Bill Nelson needs a miracle
in Florida Senate race
Washington Examiner, by Susan Ferrechio    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/17/2018 10:40:52     Post Reply
Sen. Bill Nelson has no viable path to winning a recount of ballots in Florida’s U.S. Senate race, but he´s still refusing to concede. Nelson, a Democrat who has held the seat since 2000, remains about 12,600 votes behind Republican Gov. Rick Scott after a machine recount concluded Thursday. Neither an ongoing hand recount nor an extended deadline for rejected mail-in ballots is likely to produce enough votes to put Nelson on top. But he’s not giving up.“I truly believe we can win this race together,” Nelson told supporters in a fundraising email Friday.

Tucker Carlson’s ‘Ship of Fools’

A truer examination of a serious American problem could not be had. In his new book, Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution, Tucker Carlson gets to the heart of the seriously bad situation that confronts America. Ship of Fools is, says the opening flap of the book, “the story of the new American elites, a group whose power and wealth has grown beyond imagination even as the rest of the country has withered. The people who run America now barely interact with it.

Years ago, years and years ago, actually, while attending basic training for the U.S. Army, one of my drill sergeants allowed a couple of the female recruits to cheat on the firearms’ range test and to report more targets than they actually hit. The awareness that even drill sergeants cheat came as a bit of a shock at the time, not because I was particularly naive — not because my own past was so polly pure that it made it inconceivable to picture anybody cheating — but because, well, these were drill sergeants, for crying out loud.

Just hours after Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general last Wednesday at the president’s behest, #TheResistance found its newest target for destruction: Sessions’ interim replacement, Matthew Whitaker. Negative coverage about the acting attorney general has dominated national publications and cable news outlets. Reporters have portrayed Whitaker as a Trump lackey, a crackpot, and an “attack dog”; Democratic leaders are demanding that he recuse himself from overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation; on Tuesday, incoming House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) warned that if Whitaker fails to step aside from the probe, “his actions will be exposed.”

In the early evening following the midterm elections, Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s wife was home alone when she suddenly became startled by a loud thumping at her door. The thumping came from a group of Antifa radicals, whose desire it was to strike terror into the hearts of Mr. Carlson’s family. Susan Carlson ran upstairs as the mob of vigilantes that CNN prefers to refer to as “protesters,” screamed disgusting threats at the Carlson residence, spray-painted the driveway and continued to try to force entry through the front door, which they broke.

Tuesday evening Hillary Clinton told a crowd that Stacey Abrams, the apparent loser in Georgia’s recent gubernatorial election, would have won the race if not for Republican chicanery. She claimed—without evidence, to use a term much beloved of the media lately—that the “people on the other side” were guilty of undermining the rights of Georgia voters: Stacey is really in the arena and she is fighting for the right to vote and have your vote counted … If she had a fair election, she already would have won.

A frequent complaint from reasonable Americanos is that political races and the annoying campaigns that accompany them last waaaay too long. Sometimes it seems they’re a permanent feature of our public landscape. Now it has become reasonable to object that election vote counting is too lengthy and tortuous as well. Take what’s happening in Florida. Please. The Middle Ages eventually ended. So do the NBA playoffs. Heck, even Fidel Castro’s speeches came to their exhausting ends. But will the Florida elections? Who will be first in with their results and conclusions? Florida or the Mueller investigation?

Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them.

The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public. The lawsuit was part of a broader Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that came about in October 2016 when Clinton refused to

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was
