New Poll Has Bad News For Red-State Democratic Senators And Their Plot Against SCOTUS Pick

Published

on

A new poll of constituents in four red states has some very bad news for Democratic senators who might be thinking of revolting against President Trump’s SCOTUS pick, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Don’t do it.

The poll states that individuals in these states want their Democratic senators to back Kavanaugh, regardless of how they feel about his policies, something that no doubt sends a ripple of fear up their spines as they realize they may not get reelected if they don’t comply.

The poll, administered by North Star Opinion Research on behalf of the Judicial Crisis Network, surveyed voters in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia, all states with incumbent Democratic senators which also voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Three of those Senators—Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), and Joe Manchin (W. Va.) are up for reelection in November.

According to North Star’s poll, significant majorities of voters in all four states want to see Kavanaugh confirmed. In North Dakota, 60 percent of voters support confirmation while only 22 percent oppose it; West Virginia is 55 to 30, Alabama 54 to 30, and Indiana 52 to 34.

Support for Kavanaugh is even stronger among self-identified independents. 60 percent of independents support confirmation in North Dakota, versus 18 percent opposing; 59 support and 23 oppose in West Virginia; 54 to 30 in Alabama; and 48 to 34 in Indiana.

“Judge Kavanaugh is a fair and independent judge who bases his decisions on the Constitution, which is why President Trump nominated him and why a lopsided majority of voters in key states support his confirmation,” Said Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director at the Judicial Crisis Network.

These results may put further pressure on red-state Democrats facing pressure from their Republican colleagues to back Kavanaugh. Heitkamp, Manchin, and Donnelly all voted for President Donald Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch; Sen. Doug Jones (Ala.) was not in the Senate at the time of the confirmation, but is likely dealing with similar lobbying from colleagues across the aisle.

This is the only way you can put significant pressure on Democrats and get them to fall in line with the president’s agenda. You have to make them fear for the stagnation of their political careers — which translates into hitting their wallets — in order to get through to them.

This, of course, exposes the general hypocrisy of the left, which is that while they talk about wanting to make the world a better place, at the end of the day they really just want votes so you’ll keep them in office, having an easy, cushy job. It’s sad, but true.

DOJ Making Moves To Break Up Google, Calling It The ‘Most Important Antitrust Case In A Generation’

Published

on

The Department of Justice is moving to file an antitrust lawsuit against Big Tech company Google on Tuesday after a very thorough investigation was launched into the company over alleged monopolistic behavior. This lawsuit will allege that Google has been engaging in practices deemed to be “anticompetitive” in order to help insulate and protect its search and search-advertising businesses, according to a source from the Justice Department. via Daily Wire: Google has frozen out competitors through contracts between the tech giant and browsers, carriers, and mobile phone manufacturers that give Google such prime standing as the default search engine across a variety of platforms as to bar any competitors from beginning to compete with the tech giant. Googles search queries make up roughly 80% of all those in the U.S. Google has argued in the past that billions of people choosing to use its product every day is evidence of the company’s competitive edge, not monopolistic behavior. The legal battle between the tech giant and the U.S. government is likely to span years. The lawsuit follows an investigation into the company that lasted for more than a year and took place in a wider investigation into Silicon Valley tech giants for alleged anticompetitive practices. The president himself has been among the most ardent voices speaking out about the monopolistic behavior of tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as drawing attention to their censorship of conservative views. Some of Trump’s most loyal supporters, like Sen. Josh Hawley, were very pleased to hear about the lawsuit. “Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation. Google and its fellow Big Tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information,” the…

Trump Tells Barr To ‘Act Fast’ And ‘Appoint Somebody’ To Look Into Hunter Biden Business Dealings

Published

President Donald Trump told Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday that he needs to “act” and “appoint somebody” to start digging into Hunter Biden’s rather shady business dealings. The urging comes after almost a dozen GOP House members have been suggesting the president tap a special counsel to launch an investigation into all of the alleged documentation and information that was recently pulled from a water damaged laptop believed to have belonged to the younger Biden. The president mentioned all of this during an interview on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning where he slammed Joe Biden and his son saying he “walked around like a vacuum.” via Fox News: “This is the laptop from hell,” Trump said. “Even if he didn’t get all of this money, you can’t go to China and have the son walk out with $1.5 billion. … You can’t go to Ukraine with $83,000 a month. … You can’t get $3.5 million from the mayor of Moscow’s wife.” “And you didn’t have a job before your father was vice president,” Trump continued. “You can’t go and go with your father and every stop you make, you pick up $1 billion.” He added: “The vice president got a kickback, and everybody knows it, and they’ve known it a long time.” One of the emails that supposedly belongs to Hunter Biden, which was obtained by Fox News, is dated for May 13, 2017, and includes talk of “renumeration packages” for six different individuals involved in a business deal with a Chinese energy company. According to the message, Hunter Biden is the “Chair/Vice Chair depending on an agreement with CEFC,” which was a reference to the now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Company. That same message also contains a note that says “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” There’s…
