Dems fail: First vote on Kavanaugh to happen Friday morning

The first vote in the three-step process to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh will happen Friday morning, according to Senate sources.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote Friday on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, setting up a Saturday procedural vote by the full Senate and a final confirmation vote on Tuesday.

The decision to proceed with the voting came just a few hours after the conclusion of an emotion-packed hearing that aired a flimsy, decades-old, and uncorroborated sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh against which the Federal Judge more-than-adequately defended himself.

Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., said after a closed-door GOP meeting Thursday night that the leadership has not determined whether they have at least 50 votes needed to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination on the Senate floor.

“They haven’t done a whip count,” Cassidy said after the meeting.

Among the undetermined votes are Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz and all likely heard Sen. Lindsey Graham’s warning.

“To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you’re legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics.”

That same message resounds with the Republican base across the country. They should vote yes if they want us to do the same.

    If this nine hour ‘display’ yesterday isn’t motivation to, not only vote, but to become a part of the solution and get others to the polls, sadly, nothing will.

    We can not allow this most vital body of government to fail in its mission as designed by our Constitution!!!! Nor can we continue to allow aging congressional members to monopolize and claim ownership of the Senate or House. “WE the people” (you & I) ARE the government!!! NOT the governed!!

    The time is NOW to UNITE and show the powerful force of REAL AMERICANS !

    And a prayer while we’re doing it would help….”Ask and ye shall receive”
