Senate Votes to End Debate on Kavanaugh. Here’s When the Confirmation Vote May Take Place.

Published

on

The Senate on Friday voted to end all of the controversy and debate surrounding SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, setting up the confirmation voter for Saturday.

If you listen really closely, you can hear the sound of outraged Democrats crying, screaming, and throwing temper tantrums of epic proportions. Be prepared for extreme displays of lunacy all over social media.

Among the wavering Republicans who voted yes were Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine. Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia also voted yes. Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski voted against moving Kavanaugh’s nomination to a full Senate vote.

It is still unclear on how Collins will vote on the full confirmation. “I will be voting yes on proceeding to the final confirmation vote and I will announce my intentions on how to vote later today,” she told reporters on Friday.

Before the cloture vote, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Kavanaugh’s nomination was un-American. “The well was poisoned from the outset,” Schumer said. He claimed Republicans, not Democrats, delayed the process. “I don’t blame them. They have a flawed nominee,” Schumer said.

An angry Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican and head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on the Senate floor that “the fix was in from the very beginning.” “What left wing groups and their Democratic allies have done to judge Brett Kavanaugh is nothing short of monstrous,” he said.

Now that senators have voted to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination, they will have to allow another 30 hours for procedural debate, putting the final vote in mid-afternoon on Saturday.

This is good news not only for conservatives who will be gaining yet another judge on the Supreme Court, but also for those who believe in our judicial system and the principle of being innocent until proven guilty.

Let’s hope the confirmation goes off without a hitch and the judge is appointed his spot on the bench.

US Pop Star Offers to Pay Fines For Olympic Team Protesting Skimpy Outfits

The IOC wants the women to remain scantily clad, and this is undoubtedly on account of their incessant greed.

The Olympics may have built themselves as some sort of prestigious and untouchable global event in years past, but the last few decades have revealed just what a shady cash-grab the games have become. It all began in the 90’s when the financially-struggling Winter Olympics added snowboarding to the games, in a move that was blatantly meant to generate ad revenue from the emerging sport and its fans.  In this quest to cash in, the International Olympic Committee refused to allow any actual snowboarding organizations participate in the operations, which drove several of the world’s best to boycott.  This, in turn, completely ruined the concept that the gold medalists were truly the best in the world, and exposed the IOC as nothing more than a marketing firm. Now, in 2021, a number of female athletes are complaining that they are being forced to wear skimpier clothes than their male counterparts, (often in the same discipline), to which the IOC responded with a “be quiet and play” sort of attitude. Again, the skimpier outfits equate to more ratings, so Olympic organizers are refusing to make accommodations. This has led US pop star Pink to step up.  US pop star Pink has offered to pay the fines handed out to the Norwegian women’s beach handball team, after they wore shorts like their male counterparts instead of bikini bottoms. The team was fined 1,500 euros (£1,295) for “improper clothing” at the European Beach Handball Championships last week. “I’m very proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team for protesting sexist rules about their uniform,” tweeted the singer on Sunday. “Good on ya, ladies,” she added. “I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.” In doing so, the Olympics will get their coveted cash and these female athletes will be able to perform…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
