'Listen to the People!' Democrats Walk Out of Committee Meeting in Protest as GOP Pushes Toward Kavanaugh Vote

'Listen to the People!' Democrats Walk Out of Committee Meeting in Protest as GOP Pushes Toward Kavanaugh Vote

Julia Conley, staff writer

As Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley indicated that he would push through a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a number of Democrats walked out in protest after condemning Grassley for violating the panel's rules.

…just walk-out, wherever you are or what you are doing, just walk out…there are no more tears…

The Truth doesn’t matter to the Republicans.

Women don’t matter to the Republicans.

The Law doesn’t matter to the Republicans.

The only thing Republicans care about is Power.

It’s time for all of us to start peaceful protest at our nearest senate offices and federal court buildings. We need to have a visible objection to this man’s selection from now until he is sworn in and every time SCOTUS meets

Where ever you are swamp the phone lines of every cretin ready to confirm this sexual abuser.

Then get ready for a national strike to begin the fireworks. The machine must be brought to a halt for the love of Mother Earth!

Keep in mind that the republicans would never let the democrats adopt anything unilaterally. But we are letting republicans bully the process of SCOTUS confirmations.

Looks like the corrupt will vote for Brett to be con/firmed! What a travesty this dog and pony show called a " con/firmation process" is!

Now we know why there are so many UFO sightings. With the possibility of a new “Civil War” here in the U.S. they are choosing their seats to watch the crazy earthlings fighting with each other because we cannot see eye to eye .

They know exactly what an FBI investigation would reveal; the fact that are recommending a sexual predator and drunkard for position on the Supreme Court.

Glad to hear Avanatti is going big media this weekend. Especially in this “drug and train rape” situation women are more likely to get pregnant. Next step for GOP is to control women’s reproductive system forcing them to deliver these babies regardless of their health. And remove some birth control pills. With the system so corrupt only going outside GOP control makes sense now. Plus hoping for an honest vote and the Fox-heads stay home in November…

Judge Kavanaugh will likely be confirmed by a very close vote. It’s important to remember he was picked by Justice Kennedy, for whom Kavanaugh clerked. Also, Trump and the Republicans need someone very much like Kavanaugh, owing to the judge’s already publicly stated beliefs on various topics, not the least of which amount to a belief that a sitting President cannot be indicted. judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation will shove the Supreme Court very far to the right, for at least decades, if not generations. Justice Kennedy also has a son, who works for Deutschbank, and his(Justice Kennedy’s, as well as his son’s, name, would likely be attached to any probes of the banks laundering of Russian mob money). Trump and the Republicans are about to purchase a very costly rubber stamp.

I suspect there’s even more damaging material in those 100,000 pages than that (not that what you posted is not bad enough).

Warning: the takeaway talking points for foxheads will be that the true rape here was by the left, the rape of K’s “reputation”. Be ready for it.

As always since Fuckface von Clownstick became leader of the brotherhood,
Step 1. Deny reality.
Step 2. Attack the Victim
Step 3 “Play the Victim”, and simply reverse roles—the rapist is now the raped.

is the very best way to protest, rather than randomly clogging up streets, blocking traffic (especially during rush-hour), and causing average run-of-the-mill people to be late to jobs, important medical appointments, bringing pets to the veterinarian on an emergency basis, or picking up kids or other people from school or day-care, and thereby arousing people’s tempers, and alienating potential support for a legitimate given cause.

This is stupid. It’s like the protector of the hens leaving the chicken with a pack of wolves still in it. There’s some irony and sarcasm in that remark…

It is always good for Democrats to be so obedient

Hope Avenetti is successful in this next ploy. Would be sad if he had to get relegated to doing sex in prison movies in order to make ends meet
