Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing quickly devolved into a farce Tuesday morning with screeching protesters and Democrats demanding the committee be shut down immediately.
The rough beginning underscored the stakes this week for the Judiciary Committee, which was trying to begin four days of hearings on Judge Kavanaugh’s record — but ran into trouble as soon as the gavel was rapped to open proceedings.
“We cannot possibly move forward,” demanded Sen. Kamala Harris, California Democrat.
“I move to adjourn!” added Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut Democrat.
He also threatened to keep the committee in session through the weekend to finish the confirmation hearing if Democrats continue their interruptions and demands.
“If people got something to say, this chairman is going to let them say it. But it gets pretty boring to hear the same thing every time,” Mr. Grassley said.
Sen. John N. Kennedy, Louisiana Republican, asked Mr. Grassley whether senators would be allowed to interrupt each other in the hearing, and asked him about the ground rules.
“Proper respect and decorum, plus how we normally have done business in a hearing like this,” Mr. Grassley replied. “We wouldn’t be having all these motions. This is something I’ve never gone through before in 15 Supreme Court nominations. I want to be patient … but I don’t think we should have to listen to the same thing three or four times. I would like to have this be a peaceful session.”
Each Democratic objection to the proceedings drew cheers from the viewing gallery, which was stacked with protesters desperate to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s path to the high court.
A gaging experience to listen to the left today. Politicians seem not to possess a shame chip.
Not worried the Judge will become a Supreme Court Justice.
Until the confirmation vote expect constant chaos theatrics.
Take some solace that the democrat/progressives/left-wing socialist/communist are desperate.
The Dems have become nothing but reprobates...….unprincipled, depraved, and vicious! There must laws and rules to deal with them. It seems as though the Dems represent halve of the population.
Good for L. Graham and T. Cruz. Excellent speeches. This is the dems being the childish, foot-stamping degenerates they always are only louder and more vile than a dozen years ago. Ignore them like the tantrum-throwing brats they are. Patiricia is right - Kavanagh will be confirmed and they will be crying the blues for the next 30 years. (like)
