Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, took a veiled shot at her party’s leadership in the Senate on Sunday when she announced that she would be voting against the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. “Prior to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, I stated that, should a vacancy on the Supreme Court arise, the Senate should follow the precedent set four years ago and not vote on a nominee prior to the presidential election.,” Collins said in a statement. She added: “Because this vote is occurring prior to the election, I will vote against the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.” Collins noted in her statement

The time up for RINOS predictably always arrives eventually: they just keep swinging from tree to tree so they are bound to eventually fall off and destroy themselves. .

Well, the drama that Mitch has to put up with by this RINO will end after this senate session concludes. It appears that her state is tired of her phony leadership. Too bad Maine will go to the democrats, though. But she does not deserve to be a republican member of the US Senate. It seems that those folks in LL Bean land have grown tired of her, just like the other RINO, Stowe. Surely there are better candidates that the republicans in Maine can locate before the next senatorial election.

There is a time to attack a RINO. That time, are called "The Primaries", has long passed. Loosing her vote when we need it is bad, losing the Senate is a nightmare. You can't always get what you want, but we are getting ACB... You get what you need.

Couple of questions: So when does the time in an election year for the President and the Senate to suspend their constitutional powers concerning judicial appointments, and why just judicial appointments?, Even on election day in early November itself the Presidents mandate will still have at least two clear months to run out,. Secondly, where is that "suspension" stipulated in the Constitution of the United states.?

She must be in a heck of a fight for her seat. MItch is letting her do this and I bet its based on the polls in Maine. Susan is a RINO but she saved Kavanaugh. Barrett isn't as tight a vote. I can let her slide on a sure shot Barrett if she can keep her seat. Better Collins than some frothing at the maouth Chuckie sychophant.

I understand those who don't like Collins. I am not a fan. But it's more important to keep your eyes on the prize. If this is what it takes to improve her chance of winning on Nov 3, then its a good move. A Republican Senate means more judges like Barrett throughout the system. A Democrat Senate means Trump's reform of the courts ends. Democrats know this and will do anything to win. We should too

If Collins is all about principles, they why doesn't she just Vote present!!! This would affirm her principle of not nominating a SC justice late in an election year. Voting NO is a slam on ACB. What a loser Collins is......

This is all prearranged. The Republicans have 52 votes . One more doesn't 'improve' the confirmation. The political judgement is that this will improve her vote with Maine '.women' voters. Right or not we will only know on Nov 3. I would rather have Justice Barrett AND a Sen. Collins.

If John Roberts made a ton of money from voting for Obamacare, maybe he peeled off a few bucks to pay Collins for a NO vote to confirm. Either way, she is all used up. It reminds me of the coach putting in the worst player on the team in the last quarter.

This will be the last we hear of Sen S. Collins. Many of previous supporters will not vote for her because of this. No liberals will vote for her because of this. Her challenger is a carpetbagger. Totally in line with however her Party wants her to vote. A supporter of the GND, which will kill the Maine economy. Yet the Unions has members supporting her, even though she will vote their jobs away. Its upside down world.

Collins is one of the stupidest US Senators, and the competition is brutal. You have Hirono, Murkowski, Patty Murray, Feinstein, Durbin, Blumenthal. Just stunningly brain dead morons. I mean Blumenthal actually thought he wouldn't get caught lying about Viet Nam combat experience. I'm not sure that Biden didn't set the low water mark for empty-headedness.

If we are stuck with Collins for the next 6 years, so be it. Maybe in 2026, at age 73, retirement will look attractive to her. Or she can be primaried. The problem is, is there anyone in Maine who would be any better? It's a state that leans dem. You are not going to get a strong Republican Senator elected. A wobbly Republican may be the best they can do.

My opinion for what it is worth. Amy Coney Barrett is a fine candidate for the Supreme Court. She is a brilliant lady with a fine family , her competence is proven. She deserves a yes vote from all of the senate not only Republicans. Collins isn't going to vote for her because she thinks it isn't right to vote her into the Supreme Court because the Democrats think they can put a man in the White House that is senile, and demented and they would have a chance to appoint another lesbian Justice. Collins must be desperate, she should change her political affiliation.

Susan, first you say you will not vote on a candidate this close to an election and now you say you will vote against the candidate. Which one is it? Either way you are gone I hope. You have been a disaster for the Republicans because you are not one. There are no "Fair and Consistent" decisions in these political times sweetie. You are either with one group or the other. You have made it quite obvious who you support!

Notice that she waited until after Murkowski said she would vote for ACB, thereby ensuring her confirmation, rendering Collins' vote unnecessary. Collins needs to vote "no," to bolster her re-election chances, since the Dems have had her in their crosshairs since her vote on Kavanaugh. What people who are cheering on her defeat seem to fail to realize is that we need EVERY seat in GOP hands, because we need to keep the majority.

I thought Collins was brilliant in her defense of Kavanaugh. I was happily shocked and surprised by that performance. And I absolutely understand why Mitch might give her a pass on this vote. But, what I don't understand is the actual vote. By not voting for Barrett, Collins turns off Republican voters, unless of course she thinks they have no one else to vote for. Many will just skip her name and continue down the ballot. But the Dems are not going to vote for her. Yeah, maybe a few here or there, but, that will probably be outweighed by Republicans skipping her vote. The other thing about these politicians that makes Trump so attractive to us, here she is, probably at the end of her career, and she is willing to give up any principles she might have left just to stay in office. I know being a US senator is the best job on the planet. All show with zero responsibility, but to go out as such a coward. YIKES. Trump would never, ever do that. These political and elected cowards are why we are fighting so hard to keep our beloved Republic.

i have read that she has Parkinson's - she certainly has the tremors, but those could be caused by a syndrome called 'essential tremors.' If she has Parkinson's, the medication can be extremely difficult to tolerate. If she is voting agianst Barrett because she believes her constituents want her to vote that way, we should recognize that our system expects that. She could have changed parties, like Jumping Jim Jeffords, but did not. I will sit here today, and bask in the glory of an overnight Senate debate, structured by Mitch, and praise him for his leadership. The hand of God may be guiding this nomination of Barrett. now I await the November3 election, and pray that the nasty, egotistical McGrath be defeated in Kentucky..

Most of us know the first sentence of this quotation from Ralph Waldo Emerson: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.” The first sentence applies to Collins. The rest seems to apply to our President.

Note to Suzie: The Senate is currently controlled by the Republican Party, whose members were willing to fulfill their Constitutional duty to nominate a judge and (if the nomineee is accepted by the Senate Majority) to provide Advice and Consent, followed (in Judge Barratt`s case) by a vote to confirm. In 2016 President Obama fulfilled his Constitutional duty by nominating Judge Merrick Garland, who I`m sure is a fine judge and a great guy. Unfortunately for Judge Garland and for President Obama, the Republicans controlled the Senate and took a pass, which was (and is) their prerogative. There`s no score to settle here, and no fairness and consistency" for any Republican to crow about! Leave that up the Senate Majority Leader and the President. By the way, a four-year-old "precedent" is hardly a precedent at all! Do you even understand Stare Decicis?

There in no such thing asa four year old precedent. Her reasoning is pure political BS. Your are either for or against Barrett. Anything else is just an excuse. She didn’t even have the guts to give Barrett her due, a yes or a no based on qualification as judge. Typical of worthless, useless, spineless, run-to-lose-in-the-long Republicans. Romney is another example. It’s not a swamp out there, but a garbage heap or of politicians masquerading as honest, decent human beings. I expect such behavior, but when I see it from Republicans, I want to puke. There is no place for people like her anymore in the new Republican party. You’re either on our side or your a Democrat. Good buy, good riddance, don’t come back, ever.

So Collins voted for Kavanaugh but refuses to vote for a splendid (female) SCOTUS nominee like ACB. I realize Collins claims to be a Republican, but she has now shown her true RINO colors by voting with the Democrats. Hell even that reprobate Utah elected, Romney, said he's going to vote to confirm ACB. Too bad Mitch didn't lean on her more because she will more than likely be out of the Senate this next term.

We can’t be fair with the progressive fascists. They plan on destroying our country and liberty. They are the worst enemy our country has ever faced. They are more of a threat than the Communists and Nazis for which patriots gave their lives fighting. If we try to be fair we will lose everything because they won’t be fair. We need to be ruthless until they are utterly defeated.

Seven people, all from different households, not only gathered for Thanksgiving but distributed to the media pictorial evidence of them flouting mask mandates and social distancing edicts. No governor yet claims jurisdiction over the International Space Station but the astronauts have a lot of explaining to do when they return to earth. It’s not as though they lacked for space. Governors ordering around people 250 miles above their states seems far-fetched. But so, too, did the notion of governors usurping the role of legislatures. Eight months after the initial coronavirus lockdowns, citizens docilely accept the idea of a single person dictating the laws that govern millions of people.
Trump’s leaving Biden a Christmas

Will Joe Biden and his foreign-policy team accept the extraordinary gift Team Trump is leaving for them under the Christmas tree — or is their hatred for the president so all-consuming that they will toss it in the garbage? I’m talking about the Abraham Accords, peace deals between Israel and various Arab states — the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan — that have sought the Jewish state’s destruction since its founding in 1948. Normalization has proceeded so quickly, Dubai already has a kosher restaurant, and its supermarkets are stocking Israeli agricultural products festooned with Stars of David — a science-fictional sight only a year ago.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday reflected on some of the most memorable moments during his two-year tenure heading the State Department, in a wide-ranging interview on "Special Report." "I haven't had a chance to reflect on it," Pompeo told Bret Baier. "I guess if I were to give you my quick response, it was really something to come back from Pyongyang with three Americans and travel home with them from Asia and return them to their families." Pompeo was referring to the May 2018 release of three Americans detained in North Korea -- all were accused of anti-state activities.

Two suspects in Virginia suffered non-life-threatening wounds this week after being shot by the resident during the alleged home invasion, according to reports. The suspects were identified as James Franklin, 27, of Roanoke, and Alan Douglas Mould, 26, of Lynchburg. Both men were charged with breaking and entering and assault and battery, Roanoke FOX station WFXR-TV reported. Police officers in Lynchburg responded around 1:40 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a burglary in progress, the station reported. The suspects allegedly knocked on the door of the residence and then assaulted the resident when he opened the door but the resident responded by shooting both suspects, police told the FOX station.

It was the kind of story that would once have had Matt Drudge deploying font sizes that newspapers used to reserve for declarations of war. On Oct. 14, Twitter and Facebook blocked users from spreading a New York Post article alleging that Hunter Biden had brokered meetings between his father, then the vice president of the United States, and executives at a Ukrainian energy firm where the younger Biden held an $80,000-a-month sinecure. The Post’s article included photos of what appeared to be an exhausted and intoxicated-looking Biden in various states of undress.

Research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein believes that search giant Google manipulated what content it showed users in the weeks and months before the 2020 election in a way that was highly favorable to Democrats. “We found a period of days when the vote reminder on Google’s homepage was being sent only to liberals,” Epstein said during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Not one of our conservative field agents received the vote reminder.” After Epstein made those results public, he said Google actually “shut off that manipulation” and were showing vote reminders to everyone in the four days before the election.

The practice of democracy in our constitutional republic flourishes in the presence of contradictions. Democracy, itself, is bound by our inalienable rights, bestowed to us by our Creator. These rights, not given to us by our government by any majority or by any vote, cannot be rescinded, for they were not wrought by man. Voting is a contradiction for it is both public and private at the same time. Its process is intended to be secret, but transparent. Its agency is intensely partisan, but its effect is intended to be unifying. The legitimacy of voting must survive despite the contradictions intrinsic to the process.
Trump’s Flynn Pardon:

Will Judge Emmett Sullivan accept President Trump’s pardon of General Michael Flynn? No one has suggested that possibility, other than The New York Sun. The general’s case, though, has become a bonfire of the vanities of one district judge who has denied the presumption of regularity to an official act of the United States government — meaning Attorney General William Barr’s attempt to drop the case. So why would Judge Sullivan credit President Trump’s workaround of a pardon? We understand, the pardon could be the least fettered of all the powers that the Constitution grants to the president.

I have chuckled at some of their overheated parting rhetoric — especially the widespread misunderstanding about the meaning of the word “monopoly.” A monopoly is, as the Oxford dictionary explains, “the exclusive possession or control of the supply of or trade in a commodity or service.” Quite obviously, if one stops doing business with a company and heads over to its competitor, then the previous company is not by definition in exclusive possession or control of a service.

A circuit court ruled Monday that Texas and Louisiana can exclude Planned Parenthood from Medicaid funding, a win for the movement to deprive the abortion provider of federal funding. The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overruled a district court's preliminary injunction preventing the exclusion of Planned Parenthood from Medicaid funding. The court of appeals ruled in an 11-5 majority that Planned Parenthood did not have the right to challenge the state's decisions regarding who receives Medicaid benefits. Medicaid beneficiaries "have no right under the statute to challenge a State’s determination that a provider is unqualified,"

Just in case you thought that all of the elections aside from the Georgia runoffs were behind us, well… they’re not. The counting is still going on in some of the congressional races and one of the tightest ones is in New York’s 22nd district. There, Democratic incumbent Anthony Brindisis is locked in a recount with Republican Claudia Tenney, who previously held the seat before him. The race gap between the two has come down to the point where Tenney is leading by 106 votes and the only ballots left to possibly be considered are the ones that were “set aside” during the initial count due to irregularities.

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) appears to have started to shift his views on the filibuster with remarks that he made on two news shows on Sunday morning.The shift from Manchin comes after he has repeatedly stated that he would not vote to end the filibuster, despite pressure from the far-Left. During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

In an open letter released Sunday, Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden urged him to “honor his commitment” and include the Hyde Amendment in Democrats’ $1.9 trillion COVID-19 spending package, writing “we feel used and betrayed.” The letter states: We are very disappointed about the COVID-19 relief package’s exclusion of the Hyde Amendment, a longstanding bipartisan policy that prevents taxpayer funding for abortion.

If you had any doubts that Meghan Markle is a manipulative piece of work, her bombshell Oprah interview Sunday night dumping on the British monarchy would set you straight. Prince Harry’s American wife accused his family of hateful racism against her baby, claimed they refused to protect her and drove her to the point of suicide.She made the incendiary and implausible charge that when she was pregnant with Archie, the royal family decreed that her unborn son would be denied the title of “prince” because her mixed race meant he might have dark skin.

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

President Biden on Monday seemed to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name at a White House event—calling the Pentagon chief “the guy who runs that outfit over there.” Biden was announcing the nomination of two female generals to lead US military combatant commands. “And I want to thank the sec—the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my—the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.(Snip) Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

The Royal Family was left reeling this morning after Meghan Markle tearfully revealed that the stress of royal life made her suicidal when she was five months pregnant, claimed Archie was denied the title of prince because he is mixed-race and said Kate Middleton made her cry before she married Harry in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.The couple also chose to reveal that they are having a baby girl to the tens of millions of people watching the CBS show broadcast in the US before accusing the Royal Family of racism and revealing the deep rift 'Megxit' has caused with Prince Charles and Prince William.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Without question, the vast majority of Americans who support former President Donald Trump were angry and frustrated throughout 2020 passed with barely a mention of then-U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation into the FBI’s fraudulent “Russiagate” counterterrorism operation directed at his 2016 campaign.In the weeks before the November election, word got out that then-Attorney General William Barr wasn’t going to announce any indictments or even a report on Durham’s investigation because he did not want to influence the outcome.So far, in fact, the only indictment to come out of the Durham probe is that of former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who essentially got a slap on the wrist

Rep. Steve Cohen vowed to renew the push to remove former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s name from the bureau’s downtown Washington headquarters, according to an interview released Monday. Appearing on Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast, the Tennessee Democrat said the effort is getting a fresh look after the release of a new movie highlighting the FBI’s secret program to discredit civil rights activists. The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

“There must have been a moment, at the beginning, when we could have said –-no. But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
