in 2013, Democrats used a sneaky trick. It's called the "Nuclear Option".
en.wikipedia.org...


In November 2013, Senate Democrats used the nuclear option to eliminate the 60-vote rule on executive branch nominations and federal judicial appointments. In April 2017, Senate Republicans used the nuclear option on the nomination of Neil Gorsuchending the debate.


Once that happened, it became the new way things work.

Having said that, and seeing how things happened here, I can't help but wonder if from now on, anyone who is nominated to a position of power, will be subject to being accused of rape or something close to it. And as has been seen, no proof is needed, just the allegation.

I think it's time for everyone to take a good hard look in the mirror and decide how the future will look. Because from where I stand, it's a dirty, nasty place, and good people don't belong in it.

I think Kavanaugh made that same allusion during the Blasey Ford investigation. What person would want to subject themselves or their families to such cruel inhumane machinations as were just perpetrated on Kavanaugh.

This stupid "Resistence" of Hillarys has done irrepairable damage to our nation imo.

Toxic, absolutely toxic.

Anything that moves the U.S away from their power can't hurt,
that is the way I see it. Looks like no love lost between them.

I'm not sure that this is true long-term.

Quoting Lindsay Graham:


if you were looking for a fair process, you came to the wrong town at the wrong time.”


I think this pick came at a unique point in our history and went beyond normal politics. If there is any truth to the Q phenomena, there are some corrupt and treasonous politicians battling for their very lives right now. Forced into a corner with no other options but the nuclear one. They would let their whole party burn to keep out of prison or face a firing squad.

I am tending to believe this by seeing the look on Feinstein's face. She shows a look of defeat beyond politics and ideology and she has been around long enough to suffer political defeats on numerous fronts.

the Finestines of this world have already done their dance. They have made their millions, and done the damage they planned long ago. I do hope for a better future and some MUCH MUCH better leadership.

I'm a Trump defender/supporter, but I sure don't want to see this level of vitriol and arrogance for much longer. I think Trump was a necessary evil, and I applaud his accomplishments, although I disagree with some of his methods. I would welcome leadership that appeared collected and produced the results we see with this administration. Much more of this and the fractures may be to massive to heal. And while I admit to being partisan, I can't help but think the left has come completely unglued. maybe it's just the brainwashing, but I really don't think so.

The Kav nomination had to be fought tooth and nail by the NWO Soros sphincter licking socialist; especially since he is supposedly one who rules as per the constitution instead of making up laws based on political expedience ...

The supreme court will have a longer effect on the USA's republic than any politician alive today. Hopefully we can get another supreme court nomination and conformation within the next two years..

What we are seeing now as far as a divided country is nothing compared to the late 60s and early 70s.. The nation survived that era and will survive this no matter how loudly the NWO swamp creatures protest.

I just want justice for those who lied, smeared, and obstructed due process...

Shame we do not shoot or hang corrupt subversives anymore. That would drain the swamp faster than just about anything...at least they would think twice IMO

It was Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 BC - 43 BC) in the timeless "The Traitor is the Plague" who said:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.

A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”


No one has said it any better IMO
