Kavanaugh Committee Vote Scheduled for Friday, First Senate Floor Vote Saturday

Published

on

In a move that signals GOP confidence in Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Republicans plan to hold a Judiciary Committee vote Friday morning and a Senate floor test vote on Saturday, according to multiple reports.

In a tense day of testimony in front of the Committee, Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct stemming from an alleged incident more than 36 years ago. Kavanaugh then defiantly testified himself, defending his reputation from accusations that have not been corroborated by any alleged witnesses.

As Big League Politics reported, there are eight Republican Senators who have not committed to voting “yes” on Kavanaugh.

With a showdown between Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford slated for Thursday, several alleged Republican senators have still not committed to voting to confirm Kavanaugh.

  • Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.)

  • Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.)

  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)

  • Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.)

Sasse indignantly questioned his Democrat colleagues during the Thursday’s hearing, expressing malcontent with how Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) handled Ford’s accusations. His defense of Kavanaugh signifies that he will vote in favor of the nominee.

Just before publication, Corker announced that he, too will vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Elizabeth Warren SLAMS Bernie’s Bros: “A Foundation of Hate”

Warren’s alliance with the democratic socialist is shattered.

Elizabeth Warren Baits and Switches College Students

Elizabeth Warren spoke in condemning terms about some of Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ supporters when speaking to NBC News on Tuesday, calling out some Sanders supporters for operating with a “foundation of hate.”

Sanders’ competitors and liberal mainstream media outlets have increasingly tried to tar his supporters in an effort to blunt the candidacy of the democratic socialist, as he appears well-positioned to take the nomination.

Warren’s previously warm relationship with the Vermont democratic socialist turned sour last month, when the Massachusetts Senator claimed Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be President. Sanders denied the accusation, and Warren went on to accuse him of calling her a liar on a live debate stage.

Warren accused Sanders supporters of organizing a harassment campaign against members of a Nevada culinary union that declined to support him.

I am particularly worried about what happened in the attacks on members of the culinary union, particularly on the women in leadership. That is not how we build an inclusive Democratic Party. … We do not build on a foundation of hate.

Warren’s line of attack is quite similar to neoliberal Democrats running implicit ‘Never Bernie’ campaigns. Authoritarian oligarch Michael Bloomberg has released ads claiming that Sanders’ movement represents a toxic mob.

Warren claims Sanders supporters are “publishing their personal addresses, their phone numbers, and then making very aggressive threats against their own safety and the safety of their families.

Joe Biden also condemned what he interprets as online hate from Sanders supporters, telling mainstream media flack Chuck Todd that the Vermont Senator bears “accountability.” Sanders himself seems skeptical of the narrative, asking who his supposedly malicious supporters are when pressed on the issue.

Heated rhetoric from online leftists now seems to be a front and center issue within the Democratic primary. It’s a bit less clear if the supposed online mobs are really harassing people, or if Sanders’ critics want a free pass from criticism.
