Big League Politics Editor-in-Chief Patrick Howley appeared on “The Conservative Cartel” radio show Thursday to give an update on the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation drama. Joining Matt Locke on the nationally syndicated show, Howley detailed the last-minute vote-guessing on Capitol Hill.
With the vote going down to the wire — dependent on the three RINO senators Flake, Collins, and Murkowski — Howley said that the Kavanaugh case is a “turning point” for the energized Republican base to finally lead the cowards on Capitol Hill in decision-making. Conservatives are not allowing Kavanaugh to be disgraced over completely unsubstantiated allegations. The will of the people is finally becoming the will of the party.
Listen to the show:
Democrat North Dakota senator Heidi Heitkamp will be voting NO on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, keeping the vote in the Senate close.
Focus turns to West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin, who is being pressured in his home state to vote for Trump’s pick. Republicans hold a 51-49 majority, but that includes RINO senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Jeff Flake.
If Manchin goes YES, then all three RINO’s — Flake, Collins, and Murkowski — would have to vote NO in order to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination by preventing a Mike Pence tiebreaker vote. If Manchin votes no, then only two out of the three RINO’s would have to vote NO in order to sink Kavanaugh.
Republican insurgent Rep. Kevin Cramer, who is running against Heitkamp in November, is seizing the opportunity to criticize his incumbent rival.
“A spokeswoman for Heitkamp’s campaign confirmed the embattled senator’s position on the high court nominee in a phone call with CNBC. Heitkamp first announced her position on the vote in an interview with local media outlet WDAY on Thursday.
In a statement released shortly after, Heitkamp said, “After doing my due diligence and now that the record is apparently closed, I will vote against his confirmation.”
Heitkamp, who had voted for Trump’s prior Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, also lashed out at lawmakers for their handling of Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“Both sides horribly handled the process around this nomination,” Heitkamp said. “We must learn from these mistakes.”
Heitkamp, facing re-election in a state President Donald Trump won by nearly 40 percentage points in 2016, is considered the most endangered Democrat in the Senate. She supported Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s first Supreme Court pick, last year.
Heitkamp faces a difficult path to re-election against Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, who along with national Republican groups had hammered the Democrat over her indecision on Kavanaugh. Two recent polls showed a double digit lead for the GOP representative.
Cramer,in a statement given first to CNBC, said: “I’m deeply disappointed with Senator Heitkamp’s decision to vote no on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Clearly, she has decided to vote with Chuck Schumer, and not the people of North Dakota.”
CNBC passage ends
Charles Koch is turning his back on the Republican Senate candidate in North Dakota, continuing his covert agitation against President Donald Trump and his policy allies.
Rep. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota is in the crosshairs for Koch, who is going after Republicans on the issue of “trade.” The Kochs are clearly hoping that his Democrat opponent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp wins and holds a seat up north for Chuck Schumer.
“He’s inconsistent across the board on these issues and that makes it hard to support him,” Americans For Prosperity president Tim Phillips stated.
“He’s not leading on the issues where this country needs leadership right now, issues like spending … or trade,” said Phillips.
“We can’t support him at this time and we’ve met with his team, explained this and lobbied them on this.”
The globalist Koch Brothers benefit in their business activities from a “free trade” agenda, and they refuse to acknowledge that other countries have been ripping off the United States for decades.
President Donald Trump recently used the threat of steel and aluminum tariffs to gain major concessions from the European Union, with the EU agreeing to buy massive amounts of American soy beans and other produce.
Trump also provided $12 billion in relief to farmers to defend against any retaliatory tariffs by other countries.
The Koch Brothers are disingenuously claiming that they are targeting Republicans who voted for the $1.3 trillion omnibus. That’s all a bunch of nonsense, because it was Paul Ryan and his cronies who snuck the omnibus through last time without allowing anyone to read it. Paul Ryan is a staunch Koch Brothers stooge, and the supposed budget wonk has done absolutely nothing as Speaker of the House to stop the federal government’s pattern of runaway spending.
The 2012 Will Ferrell movie “The Campaign” depicted the globalist “Macht Brothers” trying to import Chinese workers into the United States to staff a Chinese manufacturing plant in North Carolina.
Prosecutors Want Stricter Bond Restrictions for Kyle Rittenhouse for Hanging Out with Proud Boys
The Proud Boys are proud of their boy, Kyle.
Kyle Rittenhouse, out on bond after shooting three ANTIFA rioters and killing two at a Kenosha, Wisc. riot scene last summer, is under scrutiny from authorities for merely having a good time at a bar.
Rittenhouse was at a bar with his mother wearing a “Free as F*ck” t-shirt when he was approached by some local Proud Boys. They took pictures together doing the “OK” symbol, which has become controversial due to left-wing hysteria.

As a result, prosecutors in Kenosha County are hoping to modify Rittenhouse’s bond to prevent the young man from enjoying his freedom. They reportedly want to prevent him from being “serenaded” by Proud Boys and other adoring followers.
“Within a few minutes of entering the bar, the defendant was loudly serenaded by 5 of the adult males with the song “Proud of Your Boy,” which is an obscure song written for the 1992 film, “Aladdin.” The violent white supremacist group called the “Proud Boys” was named after this song, which is sung by its members as an anthem and for self-identification,” the Kenosha County District Attorney’s office wrote.
“The defendant later posed for several photographs with these adults in the bar. In each of these photographs, the defendant and the other adults flashed the “OK” sign used by white supremacists,” they added.
The surreal letter from the DA’s office that looks like it was written by an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) operative can be seen here:

The letter from the DA’s house shows how the government is painting ordinary conservatives and Trump supporters by as white supremacists and terrorist threats based on left-wing propaganda.
Big League Politics reported on how Rittenhouse posted bond in November after spending months confined in jail for exercising his right to self-defense against ANTIFA terrorists:
Illinois teenager Kyle Rittenhouse has been freed from the Kenosha County Jail in Wisconsin, after posting a $2 million bond set by a judge on Friday.
Rittenhouse is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot in August. He’s also charged with a count of being a minor in possession of a firearm.
Rittenhouse was assailed by Rosenbaum while present at the scene of the riots, carrying an AR-style rifle and planning to prevent looting and rioting in Kenosha. Rittenhouse shot and killed Rosenbaum, arguing that he acted in self-defense when Rosenbaum attempted to grab his rifle. Rittenhouse would go on to shoot two men- one of them armed with a gun- who chased him as he tried to flee the scene of the riots.
Rittenhouse had been extradited from Illinois to Wisconsin to face charges. He posted bond through his attorney, Mark Richards, on Friday at 2PM.
Rittenhouse will be remembered as an American hero whether or not he is acquitted in the courts or ultimately made a martyr by a biased and unjust system. The Proud Boys are right to be proud of their boy Kyle in this instance.
