Less than an hour ago at the time of this posting, President Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh as his choice to replace Justice Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court. Last Friday we recorded a podcast (skip to minute 6 if you like) about how the Left plays the game during times like this. We mentioned that the Left would use the word “extreme” in their pre-fab press releases and talking points to describe anyone that President Trump would choose.
Well, true to form, here are some of the immediate tweets since the announcement, and the word “extreme” is in each one of them:
#BREAKING: Trump just selected Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court—an extreme judge who would threaten our health care, marriage equality, and Roe v. Wade.
BREAKING: Trump just nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Here's why you need to tell your senators to block this extreme nominee: (855) 999-1663 #SaveSCOTUSpic.twitter.com/jLF2OlXYAy
Who in Montana can replace Jon Tester? The filing deadline has already passed, and there look to be 3-4 Republican Senate candidates. Those in the know, what can you tell us about any of the Republican candidates?
Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false. The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family. Tester should resign. The…..
….great people of Montana will not stand for this kind of slander when talking of a great human being. Admiral Jackson is the kind of man that those in Montana would most respect and admire, and now, for no reason whatsoever, his reputation has been shattered. Not fair, Tester!
Secret Service has just informed me that Senator Jon Tester’s statements on Admiral Jackson are not true. There were no such findings. A horrible thing that we in D.C. must live with, just like phony Russian Collusion. Tester should lose race in Montana. Very dishonest and sick!
As we discussed last year, Salena Zito was so keen at watching and listening to real people, that she was one of the few journalists in America who saw what was happening and reported it correctly all along. She has written two pieces this week that look back at the past year and they are both “must reads” that need a little bit of your time and attention. Salena offers valuable feedback on what the American voter is thinking and feeling right now.
America still hasn't recovered from Trump win (I went to Michigan and Western Maryland the differences striking) https://t.co/NY4w9bOkCZ v
Hopefully you at least partially followed the recent U.K. national elections. There is a lot of examining and explaining to be done as to what happened, and why it happened. The day after the election, on a London talk radio program, host Iain Dale took a call from a man named Martin. Martin went on an epic diatribe of voter frustration and disgust. Fortunately for us, the call has been archived and we can enjoy it over here on this side of the pond. Scroll down once you’re on the page and listen to the 9 min 40 sec version of the call. Enjoy!
Donald Trump has been elected President. This also means that Indiana Governor Mike Pence will now be the Vice President. In all likelihood, Vice President Pence will drive the domestic agenda, and will utilize his close friendship with people like Speaker Paul Ryan to really get great things done.
Mike Pence has called himself a Jack Kemp Republican, so you can see why we admire him.
When Jack Kemp died in 2009, Mike Pence was in Congress and he was able to deliver this brief address on the floor of the House of Representatives. Congressman Pence closed his memorial speech with this:
“I will always be proud to have known this good and great man. And I will always, first and foremost, refer to myself as a “Jack Kemp Republican.”
