    Enough of the obstruction from democrats.

    Christine Ford and her lawyer have been too wishy washy on their decision to testify before the Senate Judiciary.

    Ford’s lawyer, Debrah Katz initially said her client would testify, but decided against it at the last minute.

    In response, according to Senator Orinn Hatch, Chairman Chuck Grassley will proceed on confirming Brett Kavanaugh for SCOTUS as planned

    Now yer talkin'

    Plan A: Trip up Kavanaugh in the initial hearings and kill the nomination in committee.
    Plan B: Come up with phony accusations of groping.
    Plan C: Insist on an FBI investigation.
    ... delay, delay, delay, delay...

    I'm glad Republicans have finally figured out the Democrats' game plan.

    There need to be criminal charges brought for unwarranted accusations & blatant obstruction. Make it hurt when they pull this crud and it comes to nothing

    It causes me to wonder 1) WTF took them so long? 2) Are they really that stupid or naive? 3) why haven't they been more active to get Kavanaugh confirmed and seated? It's only a SECOND sc justice they could get AND take credit for. Are they that stupid to not see/want this?

    Absolutely! Like making the plaintiff pay when they tie up courts with BS suits and lose. No getting away without paying for it would go a long way to stop that BS.

    McConnell and Grassley really screwed this up. They should have known the dems would pull stunts like this and given the process an extra 2 weeks of cushion time.

    IIRC, the Supreme's session begins on OCT 1. The best case I can see is Kavanaugh being confirmed by the 1st or 2nd. That's assuming Schumer won't pull out another delaying tactic on the floor vote. Quite likely he will.

    I really need to look up SCOTUS' rules for a Justice that is seated late. Can he become a part of a case that has already begun the process or does he have to recuse on those cases? Having a 4 to 4 divide may lead to some bad case law on important cases, as lower court rulings would stand in a tie.

    At this point, I guess I'll be happy if Kavanaugh is just seated on the court. The GOP screws up every thing they touch. :steamed:

    The only reason to hesitate is that they are fearful of the coming MSM backlash and it's effects on the mid-terms. But trying to appease the MSM is mission impossible - no matter what, the MSM will vilify Republicans.

    But the most important question of all is this: Is it more important to get a generational conservative majority on the high court, or win a mid-term election? Republicans should not have any problem answering that.

    I'm sure that they will have scheduled hearings on the most important cases for later in the session. Shouldn't be that big of a deal if he's seated a few days late.

    That is great, except according to the texts in the linked article, Hatch did not say:

    "In response, according to Senator Orinn Hatch, Chairman Chuck Grassley will proceed on confirming Brett Kavanaugh for SCOTUS as planned."

    He said "We should proceed as planned."

    The article says one thing then shows tweets that say another.

    It aint "OVER" till it's "OVER", but Grassley gets a big SALUTE from me if this is true.

    All comes down to whether or not they have the votes to confirm. That idiot Flake might be a problem. If they are confident that they do I think they will vote this week.

    Since when does a wacko dictate the schedule of the senate? Her lawyer says she will testify on her schedule. BS!!!

    If the democRATs get away with this and the vote is delayed or he doesn't get confirmed, this will become their MO for EVERY Republican nomination. Forget the facts. Just have a list of women to be paid off to make false allegations against Republicans.

    It's up to you Republicans. Unless you want this to become the norm you better have the vote this week.

    Good. Do it today.


    I can hear the socialist now "Not my judge".

    I am sure that Hillary and Obama will have to give us their opinion.

    Oh, Hillary already is. She's on MSNBC saying Trump should ask the FBI to reopen Kavanaugh's background check.
