This thread reminds me of another poster that continuously criticized Obama and how much his vacations cost the tax payers
The ridiculous assertion that the Liar in chief the one that will never ever in the history of his life has ever apologized for the numerous lies and inaccuracies that he has said. and seeing  now a thread that can actually state that there where a lie or a mistake whatever you want to call it and  criticize it .?

At least we should require that posts should be credible and not ridiculouis

The public wasn't given all the facts during the Kavanaugh hearing. Senators McConnell and Collins suppressed testimonies of witnesses who could corroborate Dr. Ford's and Ms. Ramirez's allegations of Kavanaugh's inappropriate sexual conduct by not having them questioned during the Senate confirmation hearing. Although these names were provided to the Senate Investigation Committee by the FBI, the information they provided was not made public. Their actions, along with Kavanaugh’s portrayal of the "victim" pushed through his nomination. McConnell also held another Supreme Court seat open during the 2016 election so Trump could fill it after he won. Now he's saying if another seat on the Supreme Court opens in 2020, he will do everything in his power to fill that vacancy with a conservative Justice.

Good morning to all-

 

Mitch McConnell criticizing anyone for not being honest is the best example of the pot calling the kettle black that I've ever heard.

 

The repub. appraoch to life is simple: Lie, lie, lie  and lie some more, then lie about lying.

 

Vote the garbage out. We can do much better.

 

good day to all- Ed

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell , (R-KY), described the democrats attempt to remove Justice Kavanaugh as a familiar “pattern” involving New York Times allegations: “Shoot first, correct the facts later.”

 
 


Full Text of Mitch McConnell speech:

 

“For anybody who’s been reading the news the past few days, it’s probably felt a little like Groundhog Day. Because, over the last couple of days, leading Democrats have tried to grab onto yet another poorly-sourced, thinly-reported, unsubstantiated allegation against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. There they go again. Call it a one-year anniversary re-enactment. Senate Democrats re-opening the sad and embarrassing chapter they wrote last September.

 

“The latest allegation was blasted out by a major newspaper despite the apparent lack of any corroborating evidence whatsoever. The reporting was so thin, the story ran not in the news section, but on the opinion page. In fact, they’ve already had to issue an enormous correction. The writers conveniently failed to note that the supposed victim herself declined to be interviewed. And several of her friends say she has no memory of any such thing happening.

 

“We all remember this pattern from last time around: Shoot first and correct the facts later. And here’s another familiar pattern: Just like last September, little things like facts and evidence didn’t stop Democrats from rushing to exploit this. Even as the media was trying to backpedal, a number of the Democrat presidential candidates were hysterically calling for Justice Kavanaugh to be impeached. That includes several of our own Senate colleagues. And even after the massive correction, no one in that group has backed off of their ridiculous threat.

 

“This laughable suggestion is already earning scorn throughout the country, across the political spectrum. A majority of Senators — and the American people — rightly rejected these politics of unsubstantiated personal destruction last year. It’s just as transparent and self-serving today. But it would be a mistake to dismiss this as a bad case of sour grapes. This is not just a left-wing obsession with one man. It is part of a deliberate effort to attack judicial independence.

 

“Six of the Democrat presidential candidates — plus one who has now quit to run for the Senate — have publicly flirted with packing the Supreme Court. Court-packing. Today’s bold new Democrat idea is a failed power grab from the 1930s. Just a few weeks ago, some Senate Democrats nakedly threatened the Supreme Court justices in writing. Our colleagues sent the Court an outlandish brief, gravely intoning that ‘the Supreme Court is not well.’ Here was the punchline: Either issue rulings we like or we’ll pack the court. This is not normal political behavior. These are the actions of a political party whose agenda is so alien to the Constitution that they feel threatened by fair and faithful judges.

 

“Well, I would say this: When the simple notion that judges should be faithful to the Constitution looks like an attack on your agenda, maybe it’s your agenda that needs a makeover, not our independent judiciary. When you are this willing to launch unhinged personal attacks, you reveal a whole lot more about your own radicalism than about the men and women you target. This is my commitment, and the commitment of all my Republican colleagues: As long as we remain in the Senate, we will fight to preserve our fair and independent judiciary.”

 

 


Why are you starting a new thread on a subject that has already been posted. Could it be you want to distract from the back story which explains what really happened, and Trump is in the process of taking over the SC with deals, jut like the deals he used when he ran his mob type business. Looks like a disctraction trying to keep people from important things.
