Gender gap hurts GOP, but Kavanaugh helps - McConnell

Brett Kavanaugh is the first member of the Supreme Court to hire an all-female class of law clerks

It would have taken only one Democratic senator to say "no" to letting the nominees through this week, but none did.

The Democratic candidate 45 percent.

Using regulations, Trump has moved to let people buy short-term insurance that could last one year - and up to three years if renewed. But the Democrats knew there was no there there from the beginning. But with a handful of endangered Democrats up for re-election this year, they agreed to vote immediately on three Circuit Court judges and 12 District Court judges, who were all successfully confirmed on Thursday, and head home on recess. The courts, at all levels, with activist judges who legislate from their benches.

Republicans argue top Democrats have only been fueling that characterization, signaling lately that they won't abide by the mantra that former first lady Michelle Obama famously used in the 2016 campaign - "when they go low, we go high".

President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are forecasting nightmarish Democratic "mob rule" to amp up GOP voters for next month's critical midterm elections, flipping the script from complaints that it's Trump and the Tea Party movement who've boosted rowdy and divisive tactics to risky levels. The correct term to describe our current Supreme Court is originalist.

Nearly a decade ago, Democrats also assailed the Tea Party, grassroots conservatives who rallied against President Barack Obama's health care law and who angrily shouted down lawmakers at town hall meetings. Supreme Court justices only answer to Congress.

The other eight justices were all in attendance for Monday's swearing-in by retired justice Anthony Kennedy at an entirely ceremonial event. At another point, liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor appeared to pinch Gorsuch, sitting next to her, to playfully illustrate her point about what constitutes a violent act. The senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional.

"But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength".

But Merrick Garland! Democrats just can't get over the past.

2017-2018 Flu Season: The Deadliest in 40 Years
This is mostly due to the mobility of our modern population, but also due to more people opting out of the flu and other vaccines. Medicago Inc., a biotechnology company, owns the first plant-based seasonal flu vaccine to reach late-stage clinical trials.

Grassley's comments appear to put him at odds with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who would not rule out considering a nominee in 2020 during an interview with Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.

More broadly, the stakes in November for Democrats are extremely high.

Legal experts told the Post the complaints may be dismissed.

Kavanaugh was confirmed Saturday to the Supreme Court in a vote of 50-48, ending the acrimonious battle that tackled sexual assault allegations and challenged the #MeToo movement in a nationwide reckoning. Had Kavanaugh been a black, atheist, immigrant, gay, cultural Muslim constitutional originalist, the Democats would have opposed him.

Julia Guo, CC '22, said that she has seen many of her fellow first-years struggle with violations of consent, specifically in the presence of alcohol, and noted how these experiences often mirror Kavanaugh's alleged behavior. The "Gorsuch wasn't accused of rape, but Kavanaugh was; therefore, Kavanaugh is guilty" tactic was an age-old gaslighting play from the Democrats' and DMIC playbook.

And the American Bar Association has reopened its evaluation of Justice Kavanaugh's temperament.

Maybe the Senate should just do away with Supreme Court nomination hearings. "Four weeks is an eternity in campaign politics, so Republicans are likely looking for a way to maintain the existing intensity level", Spain said. Kuckoo Kamala Harris and New Jersey Sen.

Mr Nadler did not address the impeachment question, telling the New York Times the investigation would look into whether Senate Republicans had "whitewashed" the FBI inquiry.
