Today's vote was on a vote to proceed to the actual vote. Collins in going to announce her final vote later this afternoon. I bet she votes yes, along with Flake and that democrat I forget his name. More than likely he will be confirmed despite his lies and his erratic partisan behavior, which will more than likely play out during his lifetime of being on the supreme court. Ain't life grand with Trump as President?

@revelette1,
I typoed the thread title. Sorry. You're right. It's a mere procedural vote but I suspect the actual vote on Saturday will be a literal repeat (tally and number wise) making this a rubber stamp/copy and paste job for the actual vote.

@tsarstepan,
Agreed on the rubber stamp. What is really the most tragic consequence of his confirmation is his seat is usually the deciding factor in all the major big decisions. Including voting rights lawsuits. We can kiss any future elections goodbye if there are any (and there always is) voting rights issues to come before the court. Already voting rights have been falling with the supreme court we got, adding Kavanaugh to the mix, just cements it in stone for years to come. Pretty soon, every to the left of hard right republicans will have no say in our country. That is not hyperbole, but a fact, if we can't vote fairly, then we have no one to represent our interest.

Quote:
WASHINGTON — Federal actions to enforce voting rights for minorities have declined sharply since the Supreme Court struck down the core of the 1965 Voting Rights Act five years ago, the federal Commission on Civil Rights says in a sweeping new report on voting issues. Even enforcement of the act’s remaining provisions has dropped markedly, the report states.

In an interview before the report’s formal release on Wednesday, the head of the commission, Catherine E. Lhamon, called the present state of discrimination against minority voters “enduring and pernicious,” and said it was poorly addressed under federal law.

What characteristic or quality did this post have that made it deserve to be the "selected answer?" Did it use logic and build a case? Did it contain well researched facts? Did it provide evidence to support its contention that Kavanaugh lied (and, no, "everyone knows" is not an argument)? I suspect, having been around here for a long time, that the most articulate, well researched, logical, carefully constructed conservative answer would never become the "selected answer."

@KingReef,
I take it you mean the right to vote any way but the republican way.

@RABEL222,
I honestly don't believe that the Leftism currently borne in the Democrats is capable of being consoled. Every time I see an investigation, agreement, even winning an election, the Democrats react like they still are not happy. When Obama was president, they weren't happy with his feckless centrism.

So right now I don't think there are any happy Leftists, who have also scooped up unwitting liberals in their own party. This has brought me to the conclusion that the Democrats are going to only get worse, because they have been conditioned by Democrat negativity for decades now.

I am not a Republican. I'm more closely associated to conservatives, though I am not really one of those in the strictest sense. I am LGBT.

Is "voting rights" code for "letting Democrats cheat in elections"?

How Kavanaugh Will Change The Supreme Court

Quote:
It has been difficult to precisely measure the ideology of federal appeals court judges such as Kavanaugh, mostly because of the large number of courts and the wide variation in issues considered by them, so there is some debate over just how conservative he will be when he reaches the highest court in the land. But every available measure, and the entries on his résumé, indicate that Kavanaugh will be conservative, and perhaps very much so. Judicial Common Space scores, for example — which use the ideology of nominating politicians for measuring the ideology of appeals judges — put him adjacent to the arch-conservative Justice Clarence Thomas, as seen below. And Kavanaugh did little during his confirmation hearing to disabuse observers of this possibility — at one point, he called the allegations against him (which he vehemently denied) “revenge on behalf of the Clintons.”

Wherever Kavanaugh ends up within the court’s ideological spectrum, he will quickly get to work. The court is currently working through a “quiet docket,” one that lacks the kinds of cases that would match the drama of the confirmation process. But larger issues will eventually bubble their way up through the judiciary — hypothetically, and most prominently, abortion rights and Roe v. Wade, the Affordable Care Act and maybe even a case related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in Russian interference in the 2016 election. How Kavanaugh’s conservatism and Roberts’s concern for the image of the court might interact remains to be seen. The laws of the land will be shaped by it.


The above is the last two paragraphs, the rest and graphs are at 538.

From what I've been seeing, the Leftists are doing more to harm the Supreme Court than Kavanaugh ever will. What they are doing now is insurrection.

So I see Kavanaugh as not being the true controversy. It's how successful the Democrats will be in staging a coup. That is the real story here. A while back I figured I was watching the extinction of the Democratic Party. Now I'm thinking I was right to think that.

Kavanaugh is just a distracting element, as I see it. He is what everyone is supposed to be talking about. I think it was Schumer who wanted to bring up "guilty until proven innocent", like he didn't know any better. He knows better, I don't think the Democrats are seriously trying to win any elections at this point. I think they mean to attempt a coup.

@KingReef,
There hasent been a liberal president since Kennedy. Almost all legislators are owned outright by big money, proof? The majority of tax laws have favored the rich for the last 50+ years. We have a conservative party and a centrist party. The liberal democratic party died after Johnson's term.

@RABEL222,
I'm thinking you don't know what a liberal is. And that you are completely ignoring the Leftist shift in the Democratic Party.

Basically you are saying to me, that the last liberal president was a man who thought it was okay to assassinate the leaders of other countries, which he did, and now that is not the case. Your understanding of history could be comedic if there was anything funny about it. I don't think there is.
