Democrats Desperately Need ONE Swing Vote – They Just Learned Their Fate

Published

on

In the thick of the Brett Kavanagh whirlwind of reporting and commentary, Young Conservatives’ Nick Arama contributes some information of which you may not be aware; something that hasn’t gotten as much attention as it probably deserves:

“There are swing Republican votes in the Kavanaugh debate, but there are also swing Democratic votes.”

Possible iffy GOP holdouts have garnered the lion’s share of focus – Merkowsky, Collins, Flake – but at least a smattering of Dem Senators have given the impression they might support Kavanaugh’s nomination in the crunch.

“And”, writes Arama, “one of those potential swing Democrats just gave a very revealing statement.”

Then, from the Daily Wire:

“Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), another potential swing vote in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, strongly signaled a “Yes” vote on Wednesday … .”

“According to Manchin, he will base his vote on Kavanaugh’s life from age 22-53, not his life in high school, which Democrats have increasingly scrutinized … .”

“ ‘I am looking at the gentleman as an adult from 22 to 53, thirty-one years of professional service,” Manchin told Al-Jazeera. “I am looking at him as a father. As a person in a community, how he interacts with his community. I am trying to put the human side to it.’ ”

Well, that’s a knee-knockingly sensible way to see things. (Haven’t seen boatloads of that from the Democratic caucus for quite a while now, have we?) Good for the Senator from West Virginia!

“Now, while that’s not a definitive,” cautions Arama, “… it does suggest he’s not going to be influenced by things before then.”

News is Manchin was “politely” flooded with input from his home state constituents urging him to pull the “Yes” lever on President Trump’s Supreme Court pick.

“They would not be happy with him if he voted “no” as Kavanaugh is supported in West Virginia by 58%.”

“Prior to the sexual allegations, Manchin had been looking like a “yes.” Manchin was one of three Democrats who voted to confirm Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.”

Imagine that! “We the People” letting their elected Honorable know their feelings about an important public matter. Letting him know in big numbers. Doing it respectfully. And having an impact.

I recall a prominent former politician from up in the New England area saying on a radio talk show that when an official hears personally from those who hold the power to keep him in or shoo him out? It does get his attention. She particularly stressed hand-written – or typed out –  and mailed letters (as opposed to email) strike home. Just a few of them would serve the attention-getting purpose, she insisted. If memory serves, she used the term “freak out” to describe the politicians’ reactions. And I’d imagine a face-to-face, firm but civil interaction would be even more compelling for most pols who have an interest in keeping their post.

“Manchin has made previous statements saying he would not allow Ford’s allegations to exclude Kavanaugh if they remained unsubstantiated and uncorroborated.”

Well, after completion of this SEVENTH FBI inquiry into the misty long-ago of the fifty-three-year-old Appeals Court judge, corroboration remains blindingly lacking for the most scurrilous accusations levelled against him. So, I guess we should count on a thumbs-up for Brett Kavanaugh from the Mountain State’s second term Senator and former governor?

And the good news keeps comin’: “And now”, adds Arama,   “more indication [Arizona’s Senator Jeff] Flake may be a yes.”

I’m assuming Flake has been hearing cascadingly from pro-Kavanaugh Americans so, if that last statement about him proves trustworthy we’ll have seen a demonstration of a heartening dynamic: Wild and tumultuous opposition from the Left rattling a Senator (Flake looked like he might throw in with the Dem opposition after a pair of progressive anti-Kavanaugh firebrands cornered him in an elevator) only to be neutralized by clear-thinking, fair-minded folk making known their minds to their wobbling Senator.

Once more: notwithstanding the hopelessness too often stoked by cut-throat Leftists and woe-is-me Republicans, when God-and-Country-Loving people get involved in the civic churn? It can make a practical and meaningful difference.

It’s in that spirit that Arama admonishes, “The GOP has 51 senators, Democrats have 49. But they may be missing [a] GOP Senator if the vote goes on Saturday because Steve Daines of Montana has his daughter’s wedding on that date and can’t be there. So keep contacting Manchin and all the swing senators to encourage them to vote to confirm.”

Thing is, right now it looks like those who revere the Constitution and America’s founding principles are gaining the edge in this Kavanaugh clash. Of course, it’s still possible to get smug, get distracted, lose that edge, let our efforts falter – and days from now find ourselves stunned, scratching our noggins and wondering bewilderingly, “Howcum Manchin and Flake ended up dropping the ball on Kavanaugh?”

Sometimes our elected leaders blow it, because those they are allegedly representing blow it themselves.

 

The 1 Swing Vote Democrats Desperately Needed Just Signaled He’s a ‘YES’ on Kavanaugh

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
