Republican Hijinx Destroys My Party

I registered as a Republican a month after Obama won his first term. I did so because I am the Benton Family Historian. John Fremont and his wife, Jessie Benton – along with Radical Forty-eighters – founded the Republican Party.  This is the name on my late sister’s death certificate……..CHRISTINE ROSAMOND BENTON! We are kin to the Fremonts who secured the Oregon Territory from British rule.

I just watched the Republican news conference on the FBI results. Senator Warren Hatch said we are in somekind of mess “because Trump had a right to appoint him.”

The “mess” is a reference to accusations of sex abuse. All six Senators said there is no collaborating evidence of the accusations made against Brett Kavanaugh. These Senators complained about how unusual this appointment was. They only have themselves to blame because they refused to vote on President Obama’s nomination for the Supreme Court vacancy. All elected Democrats thought this was VERY “UNFAIR”. You will read this word in the transcript when it is put online.

As it stands right now, I am the only collaborated Republican Victim of Sex Abuse. I am seeking an attorney to bring a lawsuit against my party for failing to protect and preserve my right to be heard, and accuse my abusers without being harassed, demonized, and made out to own devious political motives. I have the best interests of the Traditional Republican Party at heart. The Abolition of Victims of Sexual Abuse – is the next great achievement of The Party of Lincoln.

Senator McConnell said the vote on Gorusch should be postponed till the elections in order to leave it up to The People as to what kind of Judge WE WANT! Here is the REAL HIJINX. The FBI report will not be made available to WE THE PEOPLE, so that we can make our fair judgements – as Mitch suggested! If Kavanaugh is arrested for any crime, then the legal documents would say “The People vs. Kavanaugh”. Why not put it to a vote? Or, pass a Bill that says Supreme Court Judges will be voted on – from now on?

In hindsight, the Democrats should have highlighted Kavanaugh’s abuse of alcohol. as I suggested.

I just got a call from Marilyn who gifted me with a real miracle – and healing! I will report on it tomorrow. It is 1:23 P.M. October 4, 2018

Democrats, who have led the charge against Kavanaugh since his nomination, point to a letter sent by Ford’s lawyers Thursday listing witnesses who are friends of Ford’s who could substantiate Ford’s story that Kavanaugh was her attacker.

“The FBI has gotten all the permission they need to interview whoever they think is necessary,” said Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas. “They have followed additional leads.”

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said the FBI was instructed to interview witnesses related to the credible accusations against Kavanaugh.

Republicans and Democrats are prohibited from discussing the details of the report, but it appears to exclude a third accuser who has been largely discredited after claiming Kavanaugh participated in drugging and gang rapes.

And it does not delve into stories of Kavanaugh’s college drinking despite former classmates sending letters about it to the FBI and discussing it on cable news.

A single copy of the FBI available for lawmakers to review in a vault in the Capitol basement. Lawmakers filed in and out all day with Republicans telling reporters the reports contain nothing corroborating the claims against Kavanaugh and Democrats denouncing the report as a sham.

The single copy forced eight to ten lawmakers to read the report together and then discuss its contents. Senators also have access to a stack of tips about Kavanaugh called into the FBI.

WASHINGTON ― The consequences of Republicans’ denying a Supreme Court seat to President Barack Obama became real this week, as the court dealt a sweeping blow to public sector unions and voted to uphold President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Both votes were 5-4, and Justice Neil Gorsuch voted with the conservative majority both times.

The reason Gorsuch is on the court at all largely comes down to one person: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who refused to give Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, a shot at filling the seat vacated after Antonin Scalia’s death in February 2016. Garland never got a confirmation hearing or a vote; many GOP senators refused to even meet with him. McConnell pushed the argument that the next president should get to choose the next justice.

Democrats didn’t control the Senate at the time. But as they watch the Supreme Court now hand down major victories for conservatives, with Gorsuch playing a pivotal role, some of them wonder if they could have done more to stop McConnell.

“We should have shut down the Senate,” Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) said Tuesday. “We made a calculation that we were going to win the 2016 [presidential] election and confirm a nominee. And it didn’t work out.”

“Hindsight’s 20/20,” said Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.). “I think I would have liked us to take an even harder line.”

Others weren’t so sure Democrats could have done anything differently.

“Are you trying to ruin my day?” asked Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.). “[McConnell] had the votes then. He has the votes now. Self-immolation was not an option. I have no idea what we could have really done.”

For some in the party, the problem began before Obama’s nominee even made it to the Senate. The issue was, frankly, with Garland himself. He was too moderate and too boring for some, and he just didn’t excite progressives.

“There were options to pick someone that the base would have been mobilized to support because of who they were and what they represented for the court,” said Heidi Hess, a co-director of the progressive group Credo Action. “Garland felt like a pick to play chess with Republicans, and it didn’t work because they don’t play respectability and civility — ‘Obviously this man is qualified, so we’re not going to block him.’ That was never going to happen.”

One Democratic strategist, who requested anonymity to speak candidly, faulted Obama for not recognizing the war he would be waging with Republicans and for not picking a candidate who could fight.

“That meant talking to reporters, going on the record, discussing meetings with GOP senators, visiting key battleground states and so forth,” the strategist said.
