Senator Lindsey Graham Discusses Kavanaugh Nomination – Outlines Political Standard for Nomination Withdrawal…

Senator Lindsey Graham discusses the current status of the Kavanaugh nomination with Fox News host Sean Hannity. Senator Graham says he feels confident that Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Senator Mitch McConnell is confident there will be a vote by the end of the week.

However, Mr. Hannity ponders what happens if two of the GOPe votes withdraw. If 49 yea votes are forecast, Graham does the infamous triple-lindsey

Senator Graham outlines his advice to President Trump if two-of-three Senators (Jeff Flake, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins) do not support the nomination at the end of the week. Graham would advise President Trump to pull the nomination and campaign in the 2018 mid-term election with Kavanaugh as the primary issue. Oddly enough, that’s the same goal held by the Democrat wing of the UniParty.

.

Whenever there is deep contention -actual risk of political exposure- the UniParty always maneuvers back into the shadows and away from actually taking a vote.

If the GOPe pull the vote, republican voters will be angry/disappointed. If the GOPe vote and cannot confirm the nominee, republican voters will be angry/disappointed. Oddly enough, when the UniParty is successful, it always seems to be republican voters that are angry/disappointed.  [See: budgets, shut-downs, Obamacare, Omnibus, Go8 Amnesty]

        I sent the following email to Senator Graham and urge all “Treepers” to email him as well as your Republican Senators with something, anything-we need to help this good man.

        Senator Graham:

        I saw your interview with Sean Hannity and thought you were excellent right up until he asked what you would do if Senators Collins, Murkowski, and Flake were going to vote against Judge Kavanaugh. Your response was to have the President withdraw the nomination and use it against the Dems in the midterms. That is the same old Washington nonsense which proves there is but one party with 2 marketing arms and invariably helps the Dems and frustrates conservatives. The Republican party is the majority party–no matter how you spin it, you will have allowed Judge Kavanaugh to pledge to fight and then pulled the rug out from under him. It is not the Dems that will have destroyed Brett Kavanaugh and his family, it will be you and the Republican party. He deserves all true Republicans to fight for him as he has done to the best of his ability for himself. By GOD don’t you dare continue laying the groundwork for cowards in your party to shirk their responsibility. Simply put, if they vote against Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, they should be removed as members of the Republican party. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! We expect nonsense from the Dems and we expect and demand better from Republicans.
        Please share this email with all your fellow “Republicans”.

          Couldn’t they as well have McConnell recess the Senate for a short time, allowing President Trump to install Kavanaugh during a recess appointment (with a fine, rip-roaring, emphatic, prime time speech to explain why it’s sadly necessary) and then campaign on keeping him there at the SCOTUS by keeping Congressional control in Republican hands?

            Not sure if that’s legal. Even if it were, it would be extremely dangerous to do as it would set a precedent that would become normal, whereby even the most radical justice could be put on the court.

            The Dems remember doing something similar when they removed the filibuster for judicial appointees not long ago. Had they not done that, we would be looking at 60 votes for any SCOTUS nominee. That one really bit them in the ass. Gorsuch wouldn’t be on the court today and Trump probably would never get a single nominee of his choosing on the Court in two full terms as president.

    An Anon posted this,
    I was looking at the Committee on the Judiciary Rules, and I found something interesting regarding the quorum rules.

    As can be seen in the attached screenshot, and also found at https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/about/rules, it seems that the rules require that 9 members, including 2 MEMBERS from the minority party, must be present to constitute a quorum for the purposes of transacting business. Thus, in order for the committee to have sent Kavanaugh to a full senate vote, they would have needed at least 2 democrats to be present to constitute a quorum. Without two democrats, the vote could not take place.

    Does this explain Flake’s actions? Is this why the democrats were caught off guard when they realized that Grassley had called for a vote to send Kavanaugh to a full senate vote?

    Remember, a lot of the democrats had stated that they would not attend the committee’s vote. If none had showed up, the committee would not have had the 2 minority members necessary to conduct business under the committee’s quorum rules.

    Was Flake used to push Kavanaugh out of the committee and to a full Senate vote? Did the dems return with expectations that Flake would not vote to send Kavanaugh to a full Senate vote without a further, week long, investigation by the FBI?
    Seems like a plausible explanation to me. So Flake is part of the corrupt DeepState or at least one of the Senators who are attempting to cover his arse for something, Trump is aware of it, Trump says to Flakelets “Make a Deal”= Kavanaugh Floor vote.

      I agree. The Democrats got Flaked and out maneuvered by Grassley all in the same moment. First Grassley cut off the discussion before the democrats could crater the senate committee meeting and then Flake voted yes when put in the hot seat by Grassley.

      The look on the faces of the democrats was priceless in that they thought they had craters the committee vote but instead were outmaneuvered and the vote moves to the floor where there are more parliamentary rules for Mitch to use.

      Murkowski and Collins need to tread carefully due to changing public sentiment on the Judge Kavanaugh appointment, plus: The spending bill just passed with allot of tax money being spent in their states and for their causes. Those dollars have not yet been spent or obligated by the president.

      Not sure of the hot buttons that would put Flake on the spot. Just wondering if there is a way to scuttle his future income flow and job opportunities.

    • Bingo now you get it…word was the Democrats had planned a boycott of the Committee vote Friday which would effectively block Kavanaugh vote. It was critical to move the Comm report to the full senate. Flake was the sacrificial lamb given the mission to negotiate a compromise with Democrats out in the hall. He effectively was able to get concensus of Democrats on FBI extended background check into the witnesses Ford brought forward. Flake was used by Trump. POTUS once again out-maneuvered the Democrats. He played their same game – pretend to give what the other side wants and then define it in your own terms. That’s why the FBI scope is so limited and why POTUS continues to say “let the FBI talk to whomever they want” but it has NO effect on the FBI order from Mitch McConnell that limits the scope to specific witnesses David Judge, PJ, Leeland Kaiser and the artful POTUS expansion, Swetnick.

      I think you have to be correct, or at least very close to the target.

      When that scene went down, with Flake out of the room, I was watching. There was A LOT of weird stuff going on. At one point, someone came and asked Grassley if he wanted to put off the re-start time of the hearing because of “what was going on in the hall.” Grassley said no.

      I think Flake made a deal with the Demoncrats to get them back into the room. Grassley really rushed it. He is a slow and deliberate talker, but he got that Flake is going to speak as a “point of person privilege” right out there quick. And he called the vote quick, too.

      He called the vote over Chi-Fi’s objections and obvious confusion. After the vote Coons immediately asked for the floor to ask that the one-week investigation be included as a motion from the committee. Chi-fi jumper in to say that it was her understanding that the delay was to be included in Flake’s request (it was not) and that she supported that motion. At that point, Graham spoke up and stated that it made no difference what the committee recommended, they “are not the majority leader.” It is up to McConnell whether to delay a vote. Flake AGREED with him. And then a bit later, Flake stated that he only made the recommendation because that is what would make him comfortable voting yes on the floor of the Senate.

      I thought at the time, and I still believe, that the Democrats got HAD by Grassley, Flake, and our President. They were pissed that Grassley called the roll. Watch it again. Start at about 4:13.

    I find the intellectual dishonesty of the Left tiresome.

    They don’t like Kavanaugh, any reason (or no reason) will do to keep him off the court despite him being about as bland, mild-mannered, and dull gray a man as you can find.

    So they pretend to believe these nonsensical tales of debauchery told by lunatics, but even when forced to admit the charges against him are dubious they solemnly intone that a supreme court justice should be held to a higher standard. “Surely we can find a qualified candidate who isn’t tainted with allegations of sexual impropriety and binge drinking”. That last is the fallback after the sexual assault allegations dissolved.

        I was arguing with a Prog yesterday; he kept moving the goal post as I pointed out Ford wasn’t credible and stating the burden of proof is on Kavanaugh to prove he didn’t do it.

        I finally told him I couldn’t believe anything he says because an anonymous accuser has come forward alleging that he had child porn on his computer. There was a party or gathering sometime between 2015 and 2018, at a house or apartment, with between 4 and 10 people present, where he and a friend were viewing pornographic images of prepubescent children and laughing about it. The accuser seems highly credible, and has provided the names of witnesses who will corroborate the story. Now, prove it DIDN’T happen.

        I followed that up by saying that when I contacted the witnesses none of them remembered the incident, and people who knew him well said unequivocally he would never have anything to do with child pornography.

        But, I said, despite all the accuser still seems credible.

        That’s when he moved on to “Kavanaugh perjured himself by denying his binge drinking problem …”

        I told him that’s about what I’d expect a diddler to say.

I don’t mean that we should stoop their level. Truth and the law still have the upper hand (no thanks to the Democrats) and truth and the law are the weapons that will defeat the crazies. We have been too conciliatory but they have a whole different agenda and pandering to them only empowers and enables them. This battle can be won but it will involve using those weapons against them fearlessly and ruthlessly. This will also clean up the swamp. When the eyes of the whole nation are on them and nothing is taken for granted. Everything needs to be scrutinized and questioned. Don’t give them any place to hide. Look at what the FBI and DOJ almost got away with because we trusted them to do the right thing. In the meantime they resisted and obstructed the only oversight designed to keep them honest.

    CBS reports: Flake decision came after he spoke to DOJ Rod Rosenstein.

    CBS: “Flake’s decision came after he spoke to senators of both parties and withstood pressure from some Republicans not to take such a step. As he considered his course of action, Flake also had a conversation with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is in charge of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. And, at the top of his mind was the previous day’s testimony from Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were both teenagers.” https://www.cbsnews.com/new

    Remember at the hearing Brett Kavanaugh says he’s a target of a ‘revenge’ plot ‘on behalf of the Clintons’
    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh accused Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday of leveraging anti-Trump sentiment following the bruising 2016 presidential election into a smear campaign designed to tarnish his reputation and sink his confirmation.

    “This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election. Fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons, and millions of dollars in money from outside, left-wing opposition groups,” Kavanaugh said during opening remarks before the panel. https://www.washingtonexami

It’s not a nominee’s job to expose the corruption up on that panel. It’s his job to be confirmed by that panel, and answer their questions in a forthcoming way, hopefully with style and wit. Kavanaugh did a very poor job of that the other day.

Also, he’s mentioned being bipartisan, not sure with the Dems being much worse, it would be best to have him in charge of the judiciary. He says the Dems were his “friends”. Is he that braindead he hasn’t noticed all the Dems B.S. after all these years and how they use the judiciary for extremist agenda? No wonder he voted for Kagan and Sotomayer.

      The fix is in for Trump. It is ALREADY too late for the Dems. They are screwed. Trump/Grassley completely rolled them by getting it past the committee. If the Dems manage to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation, these red state democrats are in a world of hurt: Donnelly, Heitkamp, McCaskill, and Joe Manchin. And that’s just some of them. Feinstein, Tester, and unexpected others could lose due to the anger this has generated. And then Trump can just renominate Kavanaugh after the election and ram him though. The Dems can’t win at this point.

      The best result for the Dems would be for Kavanaugh to be confirmed, since stopping him now won’t stop Trump from renominating him after the midterms when he has the votes – more votes than he will have if this issue goes away. If he’s confirmed, the Dems can fund raise off it for years.

      But the problem is that this is ALL about FISA. Some of these Senators are in BIG, BIG trouble. If the rumors are correct, they will be facing charges of treason and they have EVERYTHING to lose by his nomination and nothing to gain. They don’t care about Murkowskin or Manchin or the Democratic party. They care only about themselves. Desperate men….

Watch them turn on the FBI investigation next. No leaks from the FBI. Did Trump and wray outmaneuver Bomwich? Comey tried to send a signal for leaking. Nothing. Brennan. Nothing. Has POTUS taught the GOP how to fight hardcore? He just beat the resistance on NAFTA. The world knows who is in charge now. Finish these punks!

    Oddly enough, when the UniParty is successful, it always seems to be republican voters that are angry/disappointed. [See: budgets, shut-downs, Obamacare, Omnibus, Go8 Amnesty]

    An astute observation. The UniParty is actually the Democrat Party. It consists of about 50% of the membership self-identifying as Democrats, while the other 50% of the Democrats masquerade as Republicans in an attempt to fool the rubes. I believe if I looked hard I might find about 10 of the “Republicans” that aren’t Democrats.

    Whatever happens, take the vote. If Kavanaugh is defeated, we’ll at least know where everyone stands. Then a plan can be devised for the future based on that information. Pulling the nomination guarantees defeat without even playing the game to its conclusion and lets the senate off the hook.

    I’d bet that if a guy like Manchin didn’t have to cast a vote because the nomination was pulled, he’d go back to his constituents and claim he would have voted for Kavanaugh if only he’d been given the opportunity to do so. This would be delivered with a hang-dog look to convey the sorrow he felt for not being given the chance to do the right thing and vote for this honorable man.

    Am I missing something? I thought Lindsey said they should take the vote, and if they didn’t get enough votes, then Trump should renominate Kavanaugh and campaign hard against everyone who voted against him to defeat them in the midterms, then vote him in when we have more republican senators. He didn’t suggest backing down or pulling the nomination, and he wanted to get the no voters on record.
    Isn’t that what we want?

      Graham is a fraud. It amazes me how many cite his diatribe last week in “defense” of Kavanaugh. His 2020 bid for that that expensive taxpayer subsidized leather chair he’s been farting in for 15 years too long. A Fraud.

    Stay out of the weeds like committee “rules” and such. They only exist for those who respect them.

    No person can explain in less than 5,000 words how Obamacare passed, but it did. The DemonizingRats will do whatever it takes and the entire Obama administration is a catalog of “whatever it takes.” They “win” by various shades of cheating.

    The Republicans are not only wimps, but they roll over on the mere hint of a tummy rub.

    The Supreme Court does not get into the rules that Congress has adopted for their operation since that violates the separation of powers. When Chief Justice John Roberts ruled that Obamacare was a tax, he was making a determination based on Article I, Section 8, Clause 1: The Congress shall have Power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.

    The Supreme Court would not (can not) involve itself in the rules of the House and the Senate which the Constitution clearly says are the sole responsibility of each house to create and support.

    That said, President Donald J. Trump should send Kavanaugh back for confirmation as many times as it takes to get him approved.

    Until the Republicans take enough “Growaset” for determined opposition to become a natural instinct, we will have to continue to push and prod them across the finish line.

    Congress has forfeited its legislative responsibility to powerful interests which pay them for the right of shadow government created legislation. We The People must ass-kick the Republicans into taking a chance of irritating the shadow government. The Democrats are part and parcel locked into the shadow government and have bought into the philosophy that the Constitution is just a malleable concept which suggests how government could be run.

    We are at the front lines in the battle over whether the Constitution will endure or fade into history.

    Paraphrasing graham and hannity today on the latter’s radio show, hannity wanted graham to expand on the ‘huge bombshell’ and ‘pretty interesting and thoughtful idea that I kinda like.’
    Graham talks about taking it to the states in the mid-term election. Then, he says that Kavanaugh has never quit, and that President Trump’s view might be different than the traditional view of pulling a nominee, and may want to make it a referendum issue.

    So basically from my view, it’s an expansion of last night.

    Obama’s Cocaine Confession Won’t “Blow” His Chances
    https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/BothSidesAllSides/story?id=2773754&page=1

    Excerpts (blood pressure warning!)
    ——————————————-
    At the moment, Republican strategists and Clinton loyalists share a common dream, an identical yearning and an increasingly forlorn hope: wishing with prayerful fervor for some revelation or scandal or personal weakness that will block Barack Obama’s candidacy for president.

    In that context, The Washington Post raises the pre-emptive question of the senator’s direct confession (in his intimate memoir, “Dreams of My Father”) that he used cocaine and marijuana in high school and college.

    Much to the disappointment of his rivals in both parties, these disclosures stand no chance of derailing his potential campaign and may end up adding to Obama’s unconventional appeal. Obama suggests in his books that he used marijuana and “blow” to ease the pain of his ongoing struggle to define his racial identity, and that association makes it all but unthinkable that even the most ruthless political operative would attempt to make an issue of long-ago substance abuse.

    In fact, Obama’s pre-campaign confessions only add to the seductive sense that there’s something fresh and unprecedented about his candidacy. He’s not only the first serious candidate of color and 10 years younger than any of his prominent rivals. He’s also the first presidential possibility in memory who admitted to his drug involvement long before he embarked on a national campaign.

    Barack Obama, Asked About Drug History, Admits He Inhaled – Americas – International Herald Tribune

    Excerpts:
    ———-
    PHOENIX, Arizona — Senator Barack Obama, the Illinois Democrat who said Sunday that he was considering running for president in 2008, has created a little sunlight between himself and both Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    For one thing, he said, “When I was a kid, I inhaled.”

    “That was the point,” Obama told an audience of magazine editors.

    The direct admission was in contrast to Bill Clinton’s denial in his 1992 campaign for president that he had smoked marijuana. “I didn’t inhale,” Clinton said, cementing the idea that he liked to have things both ways.

    Obama had written in his first book, “Dreams From My Father” (1995), before entering politics, that he had used marijuana and cocaine (“maybe a little blow”). He said he had not tried heroin because he did not like the pusher who was trying to sell it to him.

    In an interview here at a meeting of the American Society of Magazine Editors, Obama said he was not making light of the subject.

    “It was reflective of the struggles and confusion of a teenage boy,” he said. “Teenage boys are frequently confused.”
    ========================

    Obama admits he struggled with emotional and mental confusion as a teenager. By Democraps own new standard, he was not suitable to become POTUS.
