Default Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination secures votes for passage

Well unless something changes between now and tomorrow, it looks like he's made it. It's been brutal.

I doubt he will sue Christine Blasey Ford for libel.

Unfortunately, there will be navel-gazing from the Left...In fact, I'm guessing a double-down...

I hope they keep it up through election day. They are doing nothing but exposing themselves for the partisan hacks that they are.

There will be some residual demagoguery over the confirmation in an attempt to motivate white women to vote Democrat in the midterm election. But the furor will die down quickly.

It's important to make way for Mueller's October surprise. He's not going to let his witch hunt for Russian collusion languish in the background when he can do election meddling of his own.

I read an article yesterday that said the left will riot if Kavanaugh is confirmed. I don't know where the article is now, but I just found this:

Quote:
Former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo warned on Sunday that African-Americans will “riot” if Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed.

Caputo made the surprise remark during an interview on CNN about the FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

“When he is confirmed — and I think he will be,” Caputo explained to CNN host Fredricka Whitfield. “We don’t know what’s going to come out of the FBI investigation. I think it will be over in a week.”


“It’ll just take a week,” he predicted. “But when he is confirmed — if he is — I’m concerned. We see, you know, social media accounts associated with Black Lives Matter talking about how they’re going to riot!”

Due to the left's despicable behavior lately when things don't go their way, I expect this will happen, and not just from Black Lives Matter.

They will keep it up after November and beyond. They are still fighting the Hillary loss. It's all they got.

I saw this morning some Senator, I don't remember the name, stating the Senate would reopen Kavanaugh investigations after the midterms.

Republicans, if they're smart, will parlay Kavanaugh into a win in 25 days, in 2020, and the Ginsburg replacement. But I never claimed Republicans were smart.

They're just way ahead of whatever's in second place.

Let them riot. They're going to do that no matter what. At some point the rioters will find people rioting back. They will lose.
