McConnell: Incivility seen during Kavanaugh confirmation process did not come from Republicans
Oct 12 2018
But the president noted that some Democrats are talking about impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who surmounted decades-old accusations of sexual assault to be confirmed last week.
President Trump took the rare step of publishing an op-ed in USA Today slamming universal medicare proposals, or Medicare for All, as an extremist proposal fashioned by progressive Democrats.
To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high court nominees from lists prepared by such judicial conservatives as the Federalist Society. According to private polling within the GOP, Heitkamp has been down by double-digits for weeks and this was even before her eventual decision to vote against Kavanaugh's appointment despite her constituents tending to favor his confirmation. Sen.
In court, Kavanaugh asked questions of both sides in arguments over increased prison sentences for repeat offenders.
Sharing the honors with Trump is Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. For the first time in generations, the Supreme Court has a conservative majority.
New Justice Brett Kavanaugh says the U.S. Supreme Court "is not a partisan or political institution", and is promising to "always be a team player on a team of nine". The court will decide what constitutes a "serious or violent felony" under the act.
First, I was disappointed with the response from the republican party. And the presence on the court of octogenarian liberals Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, both appointed by Bill Clinton, suggests that McConnell may have an opportunity to ensure the endurance of his great achievement.
Top Republicans have acknowledged that television scenes of anti-Kavanaugh protesters berating senators and interrupting Senate debate have helped them.
How united is the GOP? Voters must consider how Kavanaugh's confirmation affects issues that they are passionate about, and then take those passions to the polls to support candidates who will fight for them.
For the Democratic Party, the Kavanaugh battle was the Little Bighorn, as seen from General Custer's point of view. That is, of course, unless the Schumers, Pelosis, Nadlers and Feinsteins of our American government wake up and smell the coffee and realize the very bad place they are taking us to.
In a statement issued Saturday, D.C. Circuit Judge Karen Henderson said the complaints only 'seek investigations. of the public statements he has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court'.
A Democratic measure aimed at eliminating short-term health care plans that don't cover pre-existing conditions failed in the Senate on Wednesday in a tied vote of 50-50. "Maybe we ought to go back and correct our own mess". She said they "do not pertain to any conduct in which Judge Kavanaugh engaged as a Judge". This latest round gives him a 2-point lead which means the race could still go either way. They have been all year.
In the Senate, Republicans are trying to hold on to three Republican-held districts where the Democratic aggregate vote in the primary was higher than the Republican vote: Miloscia's seat, Republican. Sen.
So, what does 2019 look like, if Democrats capture the House? Roberts has previously said that assignment is a way of bringing a new justice "back down to Earth after the excitement of confirmation and appointment". But the defendants in the two cases - Victor Stitt of Tennessee and Jason Sims of Arkansas - were convicted under state laws that allow prosecutions of burglaries of mobile homes and other vehicles in which people sleep.
