SCOTUS Pick Brett Kavanaugh’s Hearing Repeatedly Interrupted by Democrats. Here’s What’s Going Down.

The Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh has more or less transformed into a huge circus, devolving into all kinds of chaos moments after it began early on Tuesday.

The majority of the interruptions happening during the hearing are the result of whiny Democrats who are rapid-firing their objections to his appointment to the bench. However, a group of rowdy protesters are also looking to get in on the action, screaming and making fools of themselves as a means of disrupting the hearing.

The chaos led Republican Sen. John Cornyn to remark, “This is the first confirmation hearing subject to mob rule.”

More than an hour and 15 minutes after the hearing began, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, moved past Democratic attempts to delay and delivered his opening statement, over the sustained shouts of protesters who were being escorted out of the room.

“Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most qualified nominees – if not the most qualified nominee – I have seen,” Grassley said.

The disruptions continued as lawmakers attempted to make opening statements. Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch struggled to deliver his prepared remarks, as protesters audibly shouted over him.

“I think we ought to have this loudmouth removed,” a frustrated Hatch said. “We shouldn’t have to put up with this kind of stuff.”

Grassley rejected the protests, saying there will be “plenty of opportunities” to respond to the Democrats’ complaints and said he would “proceed accordingly.”

“We have said for a long period of time that we were going to proceed on this very day and I think we ought to give the American people the opportunity to hear whether judge Kavanaugh should be on the Supreme Court or not,” Grassley said.

Ever notice how Democrats seem incapable of actually being able to engage with the issues facing the country? It seems that no matter what the topic of discussion is, these folks just cannot put together a coherent argument supported by facts to present a counter proposal to the ideas being presented by conservatives.

Instead, they just throw temper tantrums, being as loud and obnoxious as possible, as if they are nothing more than spoiled children. Guess that’s easier than putting forth the effort to present a logical argument.

Or, maybe, they recognize that the facts and data that exists makes their policy positions untenable, therefore, they just ignore it all and opt to throw fits instead?

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
