Brett Kavanaugh passes cloture vote

October 5, 2018

  By a tally of 51-49 Brett Kavanaugh passed the cloture vote earlier today setting up a final vote on his nomination tomorrow. One Democrat, Joe Manchin, voted in favor of cloture while one Republican, Lisa Murkowski, broke ranks and sided with the Democrats.

  If all the votes hold true Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed by the slimmest of margins tomorrow. However I will not believe it until I see it after the theatrics we have seen since this process began. There is still the chance Joe Manchin can change his mind and I simply do not trust Jeff Flake at all. In what would be his “Spartacus” moment he could show up to vote tomorrow channeling his best John McCain to give Brett Kavanaugh the thumbs down. 

  If one vote peals away Vice President Pence will cast the deciding vote, but if two do we get to start this whole process over again. Won’t that be fun…

    Murkowskisrein hopefully will go down in flames next time she’s up for re-election. Who knows what bone her lefty buddies threw her and she accepted even knowing Fraud lied through her teeth.

      Now I am reading the votes are there even without Murkowski but I am still leery until it is over. I also read Palin is floating a run against her.

        I know, right? Palin has been relegated to obscurity and irrelevancy and she must want to get back into the limelight. Also, it looks as if Susan Rice might be challenging Susan Collins.

    I am with you. Haven’t gotten the bubbly out yet… If you get a chance, do go over to Conservative Tree House. Breaks down and follows the thread of the Deep State and Ms Ford.
