Claire McCaskill is Voting Against Kavanaugh. Her Reason Why is Surprising.

Published

on

Democrat Claire McCaskill, who is a Democrat, has decided she’s not going to be voting in favor of Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Shocker, right?

McCaskill said her decision not to support Kavanaugh wouldn’t be based on the paper thin allegations of sexual assault against him, but rather, on an entirely different issue.

Free speech. She disagrees with him because he supports free speech.

“He has revealed his bias against limits on campaign donations which places him completely out of the mainstream of this nation,” McCaskill wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. “He wrote, ‘And I have heard very few people say that limits on contributions to candidates are unconstitutional although I for one tend to think those limits have some constitutional problems.’”

She also suggested that Kavanaugh would “give free reign [sic] to anonymous donors and foreign governments through their citizens to spend money to interfere and influence our elections with so-called ‘issue ads.’” She later tied him to Russia, stating that a Russian company “indicted for election interference is currently using Judge Kavanaugh’s opinion to argue for their innocence.”

McCaskill further said she was “uncomfortable about his view on Presidential power as it relates to the rule of law, and his position that corporations are people” but that his support of “unlimited donations and dark anonymous money, from even foreign interests” was the “determining factor” in her decision to vote against him.

McCaskill is alluding to the Citizens United Supreme Court case, which determined that political campaign spending was protected by the First Amendment. The Left disagrees with this, and continuously rails against the decision, even while accepting so-called dark money allowed by it.

The whole idea of limitations on campaign finance is ridiculous to begin with. The government has no right to tell someone what they can and cannot do with the money they work hard to earn. It’s their personal property, which means they can do whatever they want with it.

The fact that an elected official, who is supposed to be upholding the Constitution, would support such limits placed on free speech is extremely troubling. Perhaps this is why she’s struggling in her re-election campaign?

Just a theory.

WATCH: Biden Tells Crowd That Trump’s Strong Economy Is All Because of Obama – & HIM

Joe’s doing stand-up comedy, now?

Joe Biden is quite the card, even after all these years. Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack Obama are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes. Check this out… WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Pitiful, Joe. Just pitiful. Late Senator John McCain (AZ) is a war hero who served his country with honor for the vast majority of his life. By refusing to leave his fellow soldiers behind during the Vietnam war and enduring endless amounts of torture, McCain put his true character on display. While it is evident that McCain swung violently left on certain issues (even refusing to repeal Obamacare shortly after Donald Trump became president), every American owes him a debt of gratitude. Let’s be honest: Trump was entirely wrong when he said of McCain in 2015, “I like people who weren’t captured.” That was pretty bad. McCain and Trump never saw eye-to-eye, prompting the senator’s outspoken daughter, Meghan, to constantly attack POTUS in defense of her father. Now, it looks like the McCain family will support former Biden over Trump come 2020. From Washington Examiner: The late Sen. John McCain’s family plans to support former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid, backing the Democrat not only in his party’s crowded primary race but also in a general election matchup with President Trump, the Washington Examiner has learned. In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him…

WATCH: Bernie Proves He Doesn’t Have A Clue, Compares Teacher Salaries to Baseball Contracts

IS THIS REAL LIFE? It can’t be…

Okay, even for radically far-left Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders this one is a doozy. According to the 2020 presidential candidate, teachers can be paid as much as Major League Baseball players. Or something like that. Check this out… Self-confessed socialist candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, recently ripped pro-baseball because its players make more than teachers. But to many Americans, it looks like Bernie lacks any understanding about the economics of the matter. He tweeted: If we are a nation that can pay baseball players hundreds of millions of dollars, don’t tell me we can’t afford to pay teachers the salaries they deserve. https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1129791583220588546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129791583220588546&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Just in case you don’t see the problem here, check out these reactions: Did I miss something or has the government started paying the baseball players, or is it still private entities? He is as dumb as his minions who are not bright enough to think for themselves. https://twitter.com/KevinKlynch41/status/1129949064265703425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129949064265703425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F As someone that covers sports business, let me say that Bernie is woefully off here on why the difference. As sad a commentary as this is, baseball is entertainment. It’s why there are multi-billion TV deals and 70M+ attend games in person. I thought Bernie understood economics. https://twitter.com/BizballMaury/status/1129840709320626176?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129840709320626176&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F There are 750 Major League Baseball players. In the world. 70 million fans voluntarily paid to watch MLB players perform in 2018. This is an apples and asteroids argument. https://twitter.com/RyanSchuiling/status/1129968264879017985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129968264879017985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F I think teachers should be paid more, but you do understand players are only paid well because people are paying to go see them… right? I’m not gonna drop $80 to go see a 3rd grade teacher for 3hrs. https://twitter.com/FauxDucky/status/1130139959346782208?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130139959346782208&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Baseball players are paid in the private sector, teachers are predominantly government employees. Perhaps we should privatize education and make it competitive so there is demand for exceptional teachers and…
