Thune: Deeply Disappointed in Democrats for Treatment of Kavanaugh

“It is clear that from the beginning Democrats operated without a shred of real concern for either the individual who made the allegation against Judge Kavanaugh or for the integrity of the confirmation process.”

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) today discussed Senate Democrats’ hyper-partisan attempts to delay and derail Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Thune also discussed the thriving economy, the result of Republicans’ pro-growth, pro-jobs policies.

    Speaking of “treatment,” I still waiting for the Garland hearings.

    You watch, Kavanaugh will not be confirmed. The Democrats will then take over the Senate in 2019, which will mean a eight member SCOTUS until January of 2021, at which time, the 46th President, Joe Biden of Delaware, will once again appoint Garland to the SCOTUS with the help of a Democratic Senate.

            I suggest a wager, JKC. If it’s Biden in 2020, I’ll buy you a hearty steak dinner + chislic, the official state nosh. No eco-vegan nonsense.

            If it’s NOT Biden, you’ll buy me one café Americano from whatever dissident Trotskyite coffee house you frequent.

              I don’t drink coffee, so I have no “Trotskyite” coffee house. And I prefer diet-coke and McDonalds like the orange mess in the Oval Office.

      Didn’t Schumer and Biden say that a president shouldn’t appoint a Supreme if that president is in the last year of the presidency? Ah, how convenient it is that Liberal hypocrites have selective and/or poor memories.

      Are you so in love with abortion that you demand only an anti-constitutional “judge” be appointed? Typical of leftwing loons.

        You are assuming that I agree with everything that Biden has ever said or done, which is not true. And I wrote the comment above and not Biden, so where is the hypocrisy?

        No one loves abortion, but sadly some would rather we live in a Taliban Afghanistan or a communist China, than the good old USA, but not I.

      Yeah, if the Dems win the Senate (which I doubt) they wouldn’t stand by “advise and consent” since they are devious and dishonorable. Do people like you love the false right of abortion so much that it is the overriding reason for your being? Murder of unborn babies isn’t very noble, but then I guess that is the state of today’s Democrat party.

        First of all, its the “Democratic” party and not the “Democrat party. Unless, you want us to start calling you the “Repubs”.

        And as far as the “false right of abortion,” which you suggest, then why did the great conservative, Barry Goldwater, understand reproductive rights, but not a conservative like yourself?

    The reason the Democrats don’t want a special female outside counsel to question Ford is because it will deprive them of grandstanding opportunities under the ruse of “questioning.”
    They won’t ask her anything, they will just blather about the victimization of women and tell her how brave she is.
    And when the Republicans actually ask questions, they willl be accused of being insensitive and abusive.

    Sen. Grassley needs to shut this circus down.

      During the Thomas hearings, then Senators Grassley and Hatch wanted a thorough FBI investigation into that matter, but here, not so much, but why not?

      The “circus” is the inconsistancy of the GOP Senators.

        Simple answer JKC: Anita Hill accuses Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment in a federal workplace.
        Dr Ford’s complaint concerns an incident which occurred in Montgomery County Maryland. That’s not a federal jurisdiction.
        The Sheriff of Montgomery County can investigate it.

          JKC I hope the Sheriff of Montgomery County does investigate it. A few questions: where did it happen? Whose house was it? Were the parents at home? We will need to talk to them. Are they dead yet?
          Did your parents know you were there? We will need to talk to them. Are they dead yet?
          You were 15? Did you consume alcohol? Did you drive yourself to the party and home again? Without a license? Drunk? Or did you get a ride? Who gave you a ride home? We will need to talk to your driver. Is your driver dead yet?
          Where’s the bathing suit you were wearing? We need it for evidence. Did you destroy it?

      What party did the protesters-a/k/a obnoxious jackasses-affiliate with at the Kavanah hearings? Democrats are so silly when they try to claim any moral high ground like when Meeshell Obummer said “when they go low we go high”. I think, regarding her hubby, Barack, she meant, “we GET high”.

      I get frustration with Majority Leader McConnell deciding to invoke the “Biden Rule” outlined by 1992 Senate Judiciary Chairman Biden against an Obama-Biden nominee.

      I get frustration with Majority Leader McConnell deciding to invoke the “nuclear option” outlined in 2009 by Senate Majority Leader Reed of approving SCOTUS nominees with a simple majority.

      It hurts I’m sure having the rules the Democrat’s made turned against you.

      However, if you find it ethical to retaliate against being treated as Democrats have treated Republicans by this type of “ends justify the means” destruction of another person’s reputation, it is obvious you have no line which you won’t cross to get your way.

      The treatment of Garland (who was never personally attacked) and Kavanaugh are not the same.

      Just remember Karma is a B**ch, which I guess you are finding out.

      One of two things are going to happen this week (whether Ford testifies or not):

      1) Flake and Collins (and probably Murkowski) will vote for confirmation giving Kavanaugh sufficient support to take a seat on SCOTUS. The red-state Democrats will vote no and several subsequently defeated on Election Day.

      2) Flake, Collins, Murkowski, Heitcamp, Donnelly, and others will vote for confirmation giving Kavanaugh sufficient support to take a seat on SCOTUS. And those Democrats who cross over will likely be re-elected.

        You are right, instead the Republicans attacked the Constitutional process, didn’t they? Whatever happen to “advise and consent?”

              No, I mean the Senate Rules govern the process and the rules do not require a hearing, or a vote to be scheduled.

              Ask Tom Daschle & Harry Reid how that works.

                But the Constitution does. You can invoke any names you want as a form of affirmative defense, but that does not make it right. Plus, your Daschle and Reid suggestions have to do with a Senate vote and not whether hearings were held.

      Do you REALLY want to compare the two? The Democrats set the rules and the Republicans followed it. Now they are screaming. The Republicans simply did not bring up Judge Garland for consideration as per the Biden rule. After Trump nominates a man with impeccable credentials and reputation and the Democrats bring out all kinds of unfounded accusations (the pill is an abortion inducing pill). When that does not work, they bring in an accuser who the Democrat in charge kept under wraps for two months. This accuser does not know when the attack occurred, where it occurred, and how many were even there and the alleged attack was over 35 years ago. Please explain your comparison.

    Confirm Kavanaugh. These are lies about a good man and a purposeful 11th hour ambush. If this is allowed to happen to him, it can happen to anyone. Who’s next for Democrats try and destroy?

        Sadly, I believe that’s been in the works for some time. There’s already been attempts to degrade him for refusing to eat alone with women other than his wife – who can blame him?

        Even more tragic is our husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles, sons, grandsons are also targets for the lies embedded in #MeToo; mothers fear sending their sons to college. The lie “all men are rapists” stems from feminism and is carried by many weak, leftist men. No man is out of reach from the toxicity of feminism.

        Is Thune willing to stand up to this craziness, these lies being told about men? Seems he may have finally decided this has gone too far and must speak up. He does know many SD women would stand with him?

            Feminists. Have you ever visited their twitter pages or websites, listened to one of their podcasts? What am I thinking, if you had, you wouldn’t need to ask that question. Silly me.

            Start with Julie Bindel and she’ll help lead you down the toxic hole of feminism.

            After that, check out colleges requiring students attend workshops about their white privilege. You may be even more shocked to know students are forced to confess their white privilege.

              Just to be sure, are you saying that ALL feminists subscribe to the ideology that all men are rapists? If not, do you think that the majority do? If not, how big do you think the problem is?

        If you dared to crawl out from under your CNN rock, you may have noticed there are women who stand with Brett. They held a press conference and it’s worth a listen, maybe not for you though, it will destroy your “all men are rapists” narrative.

    The treatment of Judge Kavanaugh is a new low in tearing a nominee down. It is true that Garland was mistreat (there should have been a vote and the opponents should have gone on record voting no if they opposed). But no sane person can think the treatment of Kavanaugh is good for the Court or the process

      I don’t think it is either. But it is the reality of a Garland world and a world where a President, who has to live with his Acess Hollywood comments, has brought us to.

      And you cannot blame all of this on the Bork nomination either, because else how can you explain all of the nominees who have been confirmed over the last 30 years?

          If you like Trump, Anne, that’s fine. But we all know he didn’t keep his pants on. Find a better argument.

            I didn’t say Trump never dropped his pants, just that he has the self-control to keep them on when the situation warrants. Kennedy and Clinton could never control themselves. Both of them engaged in extremely risky, stupid behavior.

      The top two names I’ve heard floated were either Hardiman or Amy Coney Barrett. If eliminating abortion is your thing, Coney Barrett might be a smart pick so dems have less ammunition with “a buncha men telling women what to do with their bodies” claim.

    I have my Constitution right here. I can’t seem to see where it says hearings and votes MUST be held on anything much less SCOTUS nominees.

    Judge Kavanaugh 3rd accuser now. It’s over for him and time to wait till the mid terms are over and then bring forth another nominee. Otherwise it is just another case of power over people and power over country.

            As I see the comment to be a joke, I do know some people are uptight and lack a sense of humor.

            There does seem to be some truth in what was said. How often the MSM has to retract stories. One that quickly comes to mind is the Nikki Haley lie that she purchased over $50,000 curtains, but the truth is the Obama Admin did. Be aware of the lies, but a balance is important; know thy enemy.

    This will be a millstone for Senator Thune. Sadly, the Dems play so poorly on the field that it will not result in Thune losing an election, but history might be a harsh judge.
