51-49 Split Holds, But Steve Daines Should Keep The Plane Ready

Published

on

Maine senator Susan Collins announced on the Senate floor Friday that she plans to vote YES on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, which is likely to be held Saturday evening.

Collins talked about how she was forced to watch “special interest groups whip their followers into a frenzy by spreading misrepresentations and outright falsehoods” about Kavanaugh.

Though she went on for a long time and defended Dianne Feinstein from the investigation into her alleged leaking of Christine Blasey Ford’s letter, Collins eventually came around to YES.

With Murkowski voting NO on the Republican side and Joe Manchin voting YES on the Democrat side, and Flake verbally committed to YES, that keeps it 51-49.

With Steve Daines going to his daughter’s wedding in Montana, that makes it 50-49.

Which means it would only take one more Republican defector — Flake? — to defeat Kavanaugh on the Senate floor. However, Daines says that he has congressman Greg Gianforte’s private plane ready to go to take him back to Washington, D.C. to cast his vote if something unexpected happens.

That would tie the vote at 50-50 and send it to Mike Pence for a Kavanaugh-confirming tiebreaker.

Republicans are not out of the woods yet, but their chances are looking a lot better.

TRAITOR: Pro-ANTIFA Congressman Denver Riggleman Threatens to Vote for Joe Biden Over ‘Conspiracy Theories’

Riggleman was always a Never Trumper.

Published

Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) is doing everything he can to prove the skeptics correct who said he was a Never Trumper that never cared about the Republican Party, just his own ego and bottom line.

Riggleman showed his extreme contempt for Trump-supporting patriots during a recent appearance on CNN, which the left-wing blog Blue Virginia was happy to cover. Riggleman said he would consider voting for Joe Biden unless President Donald Trump said conspiracy theories were bad, or something.

“I think there’s going to be a lot of people voting for [Libertarian] Jo Jorgensen or looking for somebody else right now…I want to vote for President Trump based on USMCA…but if he doesn’t come out and repudiate this type of insanity, it’s hard for military members like me to vote down that line; you have to vote for what’s right, and I’m going to look for integrity first…and if people don’t like it, I really don’t care,” Riggleman said while appearing on the fake news leader.

“I would consider [voting for Joe Biden]; I’m a free-thinking American…I think you’ve got to put people over party at some point…We have got to stop the insanity of conspiracy theories…that are anti-Semitic and are fictional…combines the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ with ‘Dr. Sleep’ from Stephen King; that’s ridiculous…I don’t even have the words,” he added.

Riggleman is enraged about the QAnon movement that is raising awareness of child sex trafficking and pedophiles within the highest levels of government. Interest in the movement has spiked due to the mysterious death of pervert Jeffrey Epstein along with the public release of thousands of court documents related to his pedo ring. This has resulted in Riggleman and other lawmakers springing into action to discredit the global movement that is putting predators in the spotlight.

Future congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has called out Riggleman’s transparent agenda. Riggleman refuses to condemn ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorists who are waging war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution while bashing QAnon to score points with mainstream liberals.

After Riggleman’s humiliating defeat in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District GOP by Christian conservative Bob Good, the libertine lawmaker has dropped the veil and shown exactly how much he loathes President Trump and his supporters. He even pulled a Hillary Clinton after his loss and refused to accept that he lost fair and square, causing division within the Virginia Republican Party that may cost them elections.

“Voting irregularities and ballot stuffing has been reported in multiple counties in the #VA05. Voter fraud has been a hallmark of this nomination process and I will not stand for it,” Riggleman said following his loss, refusing to accept his failure gracefully.

“Republican Party of Virginia needs to reevaluate their priorities. We are evaluating all our options at this time,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on Riggleman’s history as a Never Trumper, refusing to vote for the president in the 2016 election, and only acting like a Trump supporter when it benefited his political career:

Freshman Congressman Denver Riggleman (R-VA) is starting up his first re-election campaign, and he is counting on support from President Donald Trump to help him keep his 5th District Congressional seat. He even participated in a photo op earlier this month delivering paperwork to put Trump on the ballot for 2020 in the state of Virginia.

Riggleman has quickly gained a reputation as a Republican who will not stand for conservative values. He officiated a gay marriage, thumbing his nose at the Christian conservatives of Virginia who supported him, as one of his first high-profile moves as a sitting Congressman last year.

“My real belief is that government shouldn’t be involved in marriage at all, but if it is, everybody has to be treated equally before the law,” Riggleman told the Washington Post. “And that is part of our Republican creed. And it also comes down to love is love. I’m happy to join two people together who obviously love each other.”

Riggleman’s libertarian brand of politics also caused him to not support President Trump during his presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Riggleman called Trump a “buffoon” and said there was little difference between he and Hillary Clinton in a social media post shortly before the 2016 election.

“I will be writing myself in for President,” Riggleman declared with just a couple of weeks before the election.

In his post, Riggleman noted that he had “no problem with Trump being investigated by the media” before giving Clinton credit for having a “much better political machine” than Trump.

Riggleman is auditioning for a job on CNN right now. When he is out of Congress, he will not be missed by anyone except maybe the Koch network backers who he served.
