    24 hr extension. The fact that everyone is highly irritated is the reason that he did it. Two months from now he can point back to today and say he bent over backwards and she still bailed. Yesterday, he was straight up. Today he is bending to accommodate them. He knows it. Let’s just ride this one out.

        The flaky republicans will vote however they decide to. That’s not within his power to mandate. If they fail to affirm BK, then the voters will register their desires at the polls. BK can be sent straight back to a new senate for another go-round with a new crew.

          ..and they will vote for him 100%..
          The Dems in Trump states like Manchin can’t vote for him now putting them into a worse position.

          It’s unfortunate for Kavanaugh and family to go through this but for the midterms this is gold.

          Aure, secure dem seats in CA will have it easier vs. their challengers but everyone on the fence with some common sense sees through this easily..

            California unamerican Liberal Kooks total 28 percent of the voting population, the 72 percent of America loving patriot voters like myself cannot stop the maddness when the vote is stolen from us.

            Hillary won San Diego. No she didn’t, candidate Donald Trump rally fill our huge convention center, Hillary had to cancel her rally because no one showed up.

            San Diego once beloved east county town El Cajon with native population 50k now is called Little Baghdad because without the communities knowledge flooded in 60k Iraq refugees we now have more Mosques than Christian churches and Sharia Law was being indoctrinated into our schools.

            The city gave them free apartment/medical/food while 40k of our veterans/mentaly and physicaly disabled/drug addicted are living in tents on the sidewalk downtown.
            They get no free apartments or free medical ( Oh but they do get free flu shots.. What the hell is going on with that ? )

            Hillary won San Diego because even though we live a spit from the border she wanted open borders and that seems like a great idea, no saftey/drugs/takeover could possibly come from open borders

            We finally have hope with the election of Donald Trump .. God bless you POTUS we love you in San Diego

              California is the model for RAT voter fraud and Marxist RAT lunatics like Moonbeam Brown (no brain cells functioning), Gavin Newsom, Kamala Harris, Madd Maxine, and the list goes on. They’re all Marxist human waste. Look at the 2016 RED counties. Not all of CA is Liberal wackjobs. As many sane Californians as possible are leaving. Some are stuck for a while. Everyone I talk to wants to move at the first opportunity.

              I’ve heard that there were at least 3 million illegal votes in CA in 2016. I have no proof of that just what I’ve heard over and over.

        He’s dealing with an organized group of political scam artists. Even though he is a politician himself, cut him some slack. His objective is to secure the affirmation of BK. If it is a bumpy ride for you, well, consider that at the end of a number of weeks or months, BK should be a seated justice. Will the ride have been worth it at that time, or will you look back and say you’d have preferred a smooth ride to no destination (i.e., no new justice)?

        Grassley is sometimes frustrating, but net-net he’s reliable ENOUGH. I’ll take what I can get from him. In the meantime, roll with it. See where this goes. The objective is two-fold: 1) BK seated, 2) PR for GOP midterms. Tell your influence group to show up and vote hard.

      I noticed our hospitals here in Canada are staffed (including doctors) about 95% female (no exaggeration). Yesterday we had an appointment with a doctor specialist who when she walked in went straight to my wife introduced herself, sat down and without looking at me said “you must be the Father.”.

      Then she continues to speak directly at my wife as if I’m not there. Unfortunately my experience in our hospitals has been like this. This was not an uncommon occurrence.

          Hi Dabigragu, my wife did speak up at and say “this is my husband his name is (redacted)” when the doctor said that but the doctor didn’t pay too much attention.

          The problem is that many women like my wife don’t like confrontation and also get very intimidated especially when their baby/children health is involved.

          We were called in for the results of some tests that were performed when my baby was sick, the doctor was trying to sell us on having more tests despite our baby making a full recovery and being healthy now. The doctor was using fear tactics to try and get us to commit to more tests.

          Socialist healthcare is very big on “screening” tests, they love doing tests. They have a big focus on “women’s reproductive health” which translates to lots of tests on pregnant women and or babies to “rule things out”. When it comes to actually treating sickness they fall down on their faces.

          I think part of it is if they see the Father come in with the baby, they know the probability of getting the parents to agree to more unnecessary tests goes way down. My salvation comes from my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, their saviour comes from genetic screening tests, government, socialist healthcare and feminism.

    Does anyone know if there is a website that lists the President’s endorsements for Congressional candidates for this coming election? Tried http://www.donaldjtrump.com and nothing there unless I laboriously comb thru all the news articles. I’ve made it my mission to send small donations to ten MAGA candidates across the country and sometimes I give more than once to any one candidate when he/she comes out strongly for MAGA in the news. So far I’ve given to Omar Navarro (CA), Corey Stewart (VA), Dave Brat (VA) and Josh Hawley (MO). Am considering Kelly Ward of AZ but she doesn’t strike me as very MAGA though. Can you suggest a few more really deserving candidates, especially those being financially starved by the establishment yet have a reasonable chance of winning? Thanks for help!!!

      I don’t know of any particular website where one can go to see every candidate that President Trump is endorsing — but here’s an idea to take things a step further.

      It would be GREAT if there was a dedicated “thread” here at the Conservative Tree House that would stay towards the top up until & including the day of the November 6th election — where Treepers could give “the scoop” on who is running in their own states/districts to help educate other Treepers on who would be best to vote for.

      For example, some top races here in PA are obvious which candidate to choose (Governor & Senator), but there are some lower level races where it would be great to have some more info on the candidates because it is not that obvious.

      Local newspapers need to not be taken as gospel, as their bias is evident. Therefore, a place to find trustworthy information would be terrific.

        Didn’t mention it in my post, Liberty, to keep it focused, but was thinking the same thing as far as suggesting a separate CTH “support our MAGA candidates” thread. That would be most helpful and I hope Sundance considers it. Would rather have a practical go-to ACTION thread than a lot of very repetitious discussion such as the pro/con Sessions arguments.

          There’s no way you are going to get 100% of what you want in any candidate. Prioritize as to what is most important and what can come along later, given more time. In my mind, Nunes is absolutely necessary for PDJT to have in order to fight the Swamp. Nunes was one of the first people in on that and has never wavered since, and if PDJT cannot win that battle now — and I mean NOW — everything else is over. If he gets through that and we have a stronger majority, PDJT will be able to do more on immigration and do his negotiating to get people like Nunes on board. I am confident that Nunes will align with PDJT on that once the political climate will make it more possible, and PDJT is going to make that happen!

Many friends and family are involved in agriculture in several states, so perhaps I have seen how difficult it is to get an immigration bill passed that assists their need for temporary labor vs. ignoring illegals to add to the voting rosters. The groups of high school and college kids seeking summer work has disappeared. Closer to my own field, I also have the same concerns about the high tech and healthcare workers’ fields, which are huge entry points for illegals or HB-1 workers who displace U.S. citizens at lower wages and never go home.

I know ag colleges offer that now but decoupling it from the traditional 4-year (now 6 or 7!) college route would be a boon.

Plus PTrump won MI and is going to supercharge their economy with his trade policies? Then add in Stabenow is not that popular (not sure on that)? Would prefer to support candidates that are on more shaky grounds but open to hearing other’s perspectives.

              The unions are realizing they don’t like being part of the Democrat plantation any more than any other progressive cutout used to segment our country for a divide-and-conquer strategy. This should make all candidates, including the GOPe crowd, get off their tails to address real issues for their constituencies.

              The union vote for PDJT only proves that all elections ARE local and decided around a food-laden dining table, be it at the country club or the favorite hamburger joint.

        If Kavanaugh wasn’t actually named during the therapy session…Ford could simply name anyone? Then go around waving “proof” ? If he was named how is this possible that he wouldn’t be required to sign off allowing the public release of his name regarding these HIPPA protected notes?

          Therapist notes ARE protected by confidentiality rules, therapists can’t release notes (unless under court order) to anyone without patient permission. However, with patient permission the therapist must release notes or summary of the notes as directed by the patient (usually that’s to other health care providers or attorneys).

          If the therapist has given copies of session notes to the patient, the patient can do what she wants with the notes including sharing with the media, politicians, etc.

    Just so everyone is prepared for the “leftist disasterpiece theatre” that will occur later this week, expect Ford and her team of fraudulent lawyers and demonrat handlers to appear outside of the Senate building the day the full Senate vote, or maybe even after the judiciary committee vote, claiming she was denied her right to be heard. You can bank on this happening.

    Grassley has played this well up to this point with extending the deadlines and showing that the Ford Fraud team has no intention of showing up to be questioned, but today’s deadline has to be it. The dems will play their after the vote is taken stunt regardless of when the vote is held.

    If Grassley does not move forward soon he will have giving the false accuser Ford the nails to nail Kavanaugh on the cross.

  44. Happy Sat all. I haven’t read all the recent comments as we are out of town this weekend. Overall, though, while I deplore the wretched behavior that is typical of the Democrats, I think in the end that Kavanaugh will be confirmed. This is very tough for him and his family, but they have a strong faith which sustains them, clearly. What a CONTRAST with the writhing of folks like Feinstein, Schumer, Hirono, Warren, Gillebrand, etc.

    In the end Grassley and McConnell are working this to accentuate the difference in how seriously the Republicans take their constitutional responsibilities. And hopefully the coveted “suburban women” demo will note this approvingly. As I said in an earlier thread, they are mothers of sons as well as women, and should not be in favor of untrue smears against anyone.

    It is a drag to wait, for sure. Hopefully this shows ALL the voters how important it is to VOTE IN NOV!!! We want to be sure there is no complacency that would allow R’s to stay home in Nov.

    I have this sinking feeling that she is going to file a police report/complaint in Montgomery County Maryland. Then they are going to scream that there must be an investigation, he can’t be confirmed, blah, blah, blah.

    Well here is an interesting story that someone on twitter has seemingly gone to some trouble to research.

    Only trouble is every one of the links come up as ……….
    Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!
    Only question now is did the twitterer take it down his self or did twitter think it was too near the truth.
