Hillary Clinton loyalists are looking to peel off moderate Republican senators Dean Heller and Cory Gardner in their effort to stop President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh.
The makeshift liberal group We Demand Justice is running anti-Kavanaugh ads in Alaska and Maine to pressure Republican senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to back off their support for the nominee due to professor Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against him stemming from high school.
Former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesperson Brian Fallon highlighted a key piece of the Democrat strategy. We Demand Justice is also running ads in Nevada and Colorado aimed at Republican senators Dean Heller and Cory Gardner, the latter of whom supported Marco Rubio in the GOP presidential primary. Gardner supports Ford being heard and pushed to delay the confirmation vote.
Democrats know they can pick off establishment Republicans, which Republicans could never pull off in reverse because Democrats march in lockstep. Dean Heller is up for re-election in 2018 and the Nevada Republican base is unlikely to rally around him if he blocks Trump’s Supreme Court pick. Gardner, on the other hand, is not up for re-election until 2020 and he has consistently shown his willingness to rebuke President Trump — possibly to set up his own presidential campaign, which he no doubt dreams about every night like all politicians do.
Close observers are worried that Democrats are using their anti-Kavanaugh momentum to force President Trump to withdraw his executive order and re-classify the documents related to Operation Crossfire Hurricane, the “Russia”-themed set-up operation carried out by Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce and Nellie Ohr and others. That would put the Trump White House back on the weak end of Robert Mueller Era politics in Washington.
Dean Heller should answer for why he would support a sexual abuser.
Cory Gardner should answer for why he would support a sexual abuser.
This is not just about Collins and Murkowski anymore.https://t.co/G42xeihebk

Former Defense Secretary ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis Endorses Rioting Leftist Mobs, Blames Trump for Division
Trump said he was a Democrat, and he wasn’t kidding.
Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis has endorsed the rioters who are laying waste to America while blaming his former boss President Donald Trump for being responsible for all the division in the country.
“I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” Mattis wrote. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand—one that all of us should be able to get behind.”
He made excuses for the widespread rioting and violence, essentially pissing on the faces of everyone who has been victimized by the mob.
“We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values—our values as people and our values as a nation,” Mattis wrote.
“We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution,” he added.
Mattis put the blame on the violence being perpetrated by the savages in the streets solely on the shoulders of his former boss.
“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Mattis wrote. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”
He then compared Trump’s style of governance to that of Hitler in Nazy Germany, showing his ideology is no different than the ANTIFA terrorists who have led the violent displays throughout the country.
‘The Nazi slogan for destroying us … was “Divide and Conquer.” Our American answer is “In Union there is Strength.”’ We must summon that unity to surmount this crisis—confident that we are better than our politics,” Mattis said.
He said that cities should be allowed to burn, and the military should do nothing to help people who are losing everything to the mob. Mattis only believes that the military should be used to play world place, never to protect the homeland.
“We must reject any thinking of our cities as a ‘battlespace’ that our uniformed military is called upon to ‘dominate.’ At home, we should use our military only when requested to do so, on very rare occasions, by state governors. Militarizing our response, as we witnessed in Washington, D.C., sets up a conflict—a false conflict—between the military and civilian society,” Mattis wrote.
“It erodes the moral ground that ensures a trusted bond between men and women in uniform and the society they are sworn to protect, and of which they themselves are a part. Keeping public order rests with civilian state and local leaders who best understand their communities and are answerable to them,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on how Mattis’ carefully crafted public image is a fraud. He pushed for taxpayer money to be used for elective surgery for mentally-ill transgender military personnel:
President Donald Trump has resurrected an idea pitched early in his presidency. He is planning to remove individuals from the military who do not want to be recognized by their birth gender, a move that was previously obstructed by former Defense Secretary James Mattis, within the next 30 days…
Politico explains how Mattis abused his authority to stand in the way of the Commander-in-Chief’s order:
“When Trump tweeted his order that the military ban transgender personnel, Mattis tried to walk it back but ultimately failed. After the White House followed up the tweet with formal guidance, Mattis ordered a six-month policy review headed by his top deputy and generals from each of the military branches.
While the reviews were underway, the existing Obama-era policies that allowed troops to be open about their transgender status — and in some cases receive government-funded sex-reassignment surgeries — remained in place.
But the review ended with Mattis largely acquiescing to Trump, recommending in a memo to the president that “persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria” be “disqualified from military service except under limited circumstances.”
Trump followed through in March by formally ordering a ban based on Mattis’ recommendation — although that policy is now being contested in several court cases.”
It seems Trump was right when he said that Mattis was a Democrat all along.
