Trump losing patience over Democrat stall tactics in Kavanaugh confirmation hearings

Trump losing patience over Democrat stall tactics in Kavanaugh confirmation hearings

“Get on with it”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqTEjriSeI4

Trump is losing patience with the Senate Judiciary Committee. What should’ve been an easy round of confirmation hearings has turned into a complete sideshow thanks to Spartacus and crew.

Thursday, Trump shared his disappointment with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Roll Call has the story:

President Donald Trump has a message for Senate Democrats and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser about an upcoming hearing to discuss the sexual assault allegations against the judge: “Get on with it.”

“I don’t think you can delay it a little longer,” Trump said of that session during a Thursday interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. “I have been accommodating,” he added, saying Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, should be allowed to speak to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“Let’s see how it all comes out,” he said in Las Vegas before a rally. “They’ve delayed it a week and they have to get on with it.”

Ford, now a California professor, has said Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her during a 1982 party when they were high school students; he again denied the charges in a Thursday letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley.

The Judiciary panel has been working with Ford’s lawyers about a hearing for both to state their cases. They had planned a Monday hearing, but the accuser’s camp wants that session held next Thursday, Sept. 27, at the earliest as negotiations continue about the format and date of that highly anticipated hearing.

Trump and Senate Republicans are eager to either hold the hearing or move to a committee vote that would set up a floor vote. Both are expected now to fall along party lines, but Republicans have enough seats to narrowly make Kavanaugh the ninth high court justice.

For the second time in as many days, Trump called the entire matter is a “sad situation,” expressing regret that someone was trying to “besmirch” his second Supreme Court pick.

Once on stage for the campaign rally for several GOP House and Senate candidates, he dubbed Kavanaugh “one of the finest human beings you will ever have the privilege of knowing or meeting.” The crowd cheered each time he mentioned the embattled nominee.

So far, committee Republicans haven’t blinked and continue to move along unhindered by the gaming on the other side of the aisle.

Sen. Grassley, the committee chairman set a 10 AM Friday deadline for Ford (Kavanaugh’s accuser) to decide if she will testify.

Thursday evening, Kavanaugh’s legal team indicated she was willing to testify, but only under certain ridiculous and unfair conditions.

What happens if she says she will testify—November 8th? She met his demand, just not his schedule. Why is she the one dictating to the federal government? Oh, wait! White privilege!

    The Senate Committee Rules require Ford to submit a biography and any formal statement she wishes to make before the committee, with her commitment to appear, 48 hours before the scheduled hearing. Chairman Grassley has stated that the rule will be observed and ten AM today (Friday) is 48 hour deadline before Monday’s hearing for Ford.

    Not white privilege, which is really just getting shaken down to support lazy and/or stupid people. This is MeToo privilege.

    I suspect that at least half of these MeToo claims are false. Many are are probably motivated by a desire to set the stage to sue and get a windfall.

    Perhaps it is time to turn the tables, where those who are accused and there is no evidence to support those claims are immediately sued for libel-defamation.

    I bet that Ford’s pockets are deep enough to make suing her worthwhile.

It’s a classic move…..make many unreasonable demands, get denied, then claim the other side is unreasonable. She won’t testify….and the Dems already have the stories written ready to hit the media and reported by their lap dogs. So predictable.

On a better note, the media Trump hater dial has been turned down from level 10 to level 9 for the past 8 days or so. What a welcome break!

Things will not change until Republican men have more balls than Democrat women. Why do the D Actress performances by Gillibrand, Hirono and company strike fear in the hearts of these geldings?

    RINOs are NOT republican, they are NWO/globalists.
    USA’s 5th column, RINOs and ALL democrats:
    Obama, McCain, Boehner, McConnell, Clinton, Kerry, Graham, Bush, Ryan and Rubio (and ‘their’ puppets like Comey, Jeh and Lynch) answer ultimately to this ‘boss’ and who is enabled by Soros’s NGOs:
    Ignore the stupid music in the beginning, after watching both short videos, it is not hard to see the real agenda of MSM, Obama/Clinton/Bush crime families, Soros, many of the Obama populated judgeships, progressive left infested alphabet Federal agencies (CIA, DHS, DOJ etc. Obama insider hold overs). ALL globalist RINOs and all democrats fight and undermine Trump every inch of the way. By the way, the above; ‘Paid for by Taxes to Subvert President Trump’, yep, we’re paying for this sedition on a massive scale.

    … and why never Trumpers wanted the treasonous, fellow globalist criminal Hillary:
    When listening to this short speech below, put it in context with her emails (did she say ‘inbox’?) and the fact that our foreign enemies also, with “100 percent certainty”, hacked into her and her aid’s ‘top secret’ emails.

    This explains it all, the GOP RINOs haven’t been ‘caving on everything’ as Sean Hannity and Rush keep saying, the GOP RINOs are COMPLICIT.

You’ve watched the tactics, But here’s what I want to tell you: In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court… Don’t get rattled by all of this. We’re gonna plow right through it and do our job.” pic.twitter.com/nmVJVHvrVV

    Not exactly how I would have phrased it, but spot on, dystopia.

what Grassley should do is simply say is the committee is holding a meeting Monday to either hear testimony from Dr. Ford first then any rebuttal from Judge Kavanaugh

but if Dr. Ford does not show up at the 10am Monday deadline, then the committee will push a full vote on the Senate floor

there is no reason to accept any demand Dr. Ford is making such as wanting no lawyers there, Kavanaugh to testify first, and a pushed back date because she is the one with the burden of proof

giving her an extra 3 days from the (already) Friday deadline is more than ample time for her to clear her schedule, get her ridiculous story straight, and show up to DC

giving Ford anything more than that is ludicrous

    Nice idea, but dystopia above!

    The FBI should investigate…her, her lawyer, and Fineswine.

      oldgoat36 in reply to Elzorro. | September 21, 2018 at 9:39 am

      Even if she doesn’t show for the Monday hearing, the FBI should dig into all this. There are too many things which stink to high heaven about this, the redacted letter, the scrubbing of social media Ford had, the timing of the actions Ford took prior to claiming wanting to remain anonymous. The funding of her lawyer should also be a source of investigation as to why they are doing this.

      These people need to be burned big time. It will stop this from happening again and again from the left. The left saw they were effective using these tactics against Moore, so you know they view this as a move to put in play whenever they can. Stomp on it with lead filled boots and make those who do this pay a heavy cost and it won’t likely happen again.

    No, today’s deadline is the rule requirement I noted above. Chairman Grassley has set the deadline in accordance and says the rule will be observed. I hope he doesn’t cave, he and the Republicans will be toast with the base if they do.

To understand what would happen if communists took over the democrat party. All you have to do is look at todays democrat party.

Got to give Trump credit for not going wobbly.

But then he’s not really a Republican, he’s a Man.

News flash! Ford’s attorney has issued new non-negotiable demands for her client to appear before the” Senate Judicial Committee. Before Ford testifies the Republicans on the committee must play I’m A Little Tea Pot” on kazoos while Sen Grassley dances in a pink tutu. Sen Grassley replied that the committee will consider having two musically talented Republican members play a medley of patriotic tuns on the harmonica and Jews harp while the others hum along, but only if its done in a way that preserves the dignity of the Senate.

Now This! This is bad, not a Trump win nor for the world

The left states that Ford has the right to be “believed”; but when the right offers her a platform to outline her claims, the left then accuses the right of “bullying”. Is this the logic we want from those who want to control the government and the country?

Keep this one phrase in the forefront:

“The first Tuesday in October.”

Explains everything.

Duh Donald has been uncharacteristically restrained and quiet about this. Good for him.

Grassley has played this well, and he’s free now to make a minor concession or two but also hold Ford to Monday. (Nobody really would care if Kavanaugh were in the room at the same time Ford was, for instance.)

Even Collins has been a positive force here. Her suggestion that questioning be done by lawyers was pretty brilliant, as it would deprive Team Spartacus the sound-bite generator panel questioning would be.

“What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Admiral Ackbar to the Senate chambers. Admiral Ackbar to the Senate chambers…

Or Tuesday. Give it one day for negotiation time but that’s it.

The nagging thought throughout this entire ordeal is that the GOP is the party of stupid, adept at seizing defeat from the jaws of victory. I’m nervous, to be honest.

Plato was right and we’ve cycled into anarchy if the mob wins this one.

I wonder if Kavanaugh can file a claim of tortious interference against CBF.

Or the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

turned into a complete sideshow thanks to Spartacus and crew.

To be fair, Sparky and friends are just doing their jobs. We have the sideshow because a couple of RINOs are not doing their jobs, and instead amusing themselves by playing hard-to-get.

They are simply trying to delay. I do not beleive a word she/they say.

Has it occurred to anyone that this is a “Pelikan Breif” type action.
There is something on SCOTUS docket to be heard in oral arguments in the first few weeks of the Fall session that Dems do not want BK ruling on?

    The idea being that they cannot stop BK appointment but can prevent him from ruling ona certain case.

“Pain Promotes Change.” This kind if injustice is going to continue until somebody makes it painful for slanderous accusers.

Justice Clarence Thomas should have sued Anita Hill for slander and defamation as Hill had the burden of proof, not Justic Thomas. She would have lost and all the book and movie deals she reaped because her lie was not challenged would never have happened. His rulings relating to Sex would not be the subject of ridicule because the issue was not concluded in a Court of Law that requires EVIDENCE to be produced and would have help shut down the present day doctrine of, “Guilty Until Proven Innocent.”

Judge Roy Moore should have sued his accusers. While the lawsuit may not have been settled in time to save his attempt at being elected to the U.S. Senate, it would have served notice on others that there is a consequence to making unfounded claims of slander and defamation.

And if both of the aforementioned men had sued and most assuredly won because there was no EVIDENCE, then the present day attempt that has added to the Democrat’s “Circus”, would not have been delayed in confirming Judge Kavenaugh. The latest abomination is that the Republican Controlled Committee and Senate is held hostage to Dr. Ford who is a proven partisan activist and hack deciding when SHE wants to appear and under what conditions. MESSAGE TO REPUBLICANS: PLEASE GROW A SET AND ACT LIKE YOU ARE IN FACT IN CONTROL OF THE SENATE.

My sense is that as usual, the Demtards have overplayed their hand and they are going to regret this latest abomination and they are going to regret this sooner than they may think, i.e., like this November.

    “Judge Roy Moore should have sued his accusers. While the lawsuit may not have been settled in time to save his attempt at being elected to the U.S. Senate, it would have served notice on others that there is a consequence to making unfounded claims of slander and defamation.”

    He has. He also dropped one of his lawsuits last week. He’s got nothing.

    He’s also being sued for calling one of his accusers (at least) a liar.

    You need to keep up…

      Typical. You can’t just correct the record, you have to make it personal.

      Why are you so insecure? Maybe you’re not as sharp as Milhouse, but you are obviously intelligent and articulate.

      So why do you need to bully people here?

      And why does Professor Jacobson allow guests in house to be subjected to your bullying?

      I was born on Usenet, so I’m fine with getting down in the mud and we wrestling pigs, but I thought the Prof was trying to run a classy joint here.

        Welp, you managed two truthful statements. BIGGGG improvement over the last several days.

        Keep ramping that truth thingy up…!!!

I suspect she won’t testify because she doesn’t want to be subject to the laws of perjury. Grassley should have just sent her and everyone she accused of being there subpoenas for the Monday hearing.

They are having a special Senate hearing just for her. When she snubs them because they don’t meet her “demands,” they need to go on about their business. A last-minute accuser doesn’t get to tell the Senate how and when to run their business.

I hope the Republicans are taking notes. They need to learn to use these same tactics. In a close election (or appointment), you should develop some scurrilous information on the Democrat. Then, wait until it’s too late for an investigation (or for the Dems to select another candidate), and bring out the accusations. It worked for the Dems with Roy Moore.
