Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court

October 6, 2018

  Unless you are living under a rock you have already heard that after a long, hard, dirty, and nasty battle Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the Supreme Court by a vote of 50-48. In an interesting turn of events Lisa Murkowski voted “present” instead of “no.” This did not really change the outcome but saved Steve Daines a trip to Washington to vote later tonight after the wedding of his daughter was over.

  I have reservations about Brett Kavanaugh, mostly with some things I have read about his support for the PATRIOT Act and privacy rights, but I do have to say it was good to see a person on the right stand up for himself against a line of attack the Democrats have used so successfully before. 

  We saw the Democrats use this same tactic against Herman Cain and most recently Roy Moore to great success. Both candidates dropped out of their respective races and then the accusers disappeared forever.  They thought they could do it one more time but apparently they underestimated the resolve of Brett Kavanaugh and now we are learning that, just like in those other cases, Christine Blasey Ford has announced she has to plans to push this any further. I wonder why…

  For weeks, if not months, we have been hearing about the “enthusiasm gap” between Democratic and Republican voters but in another interesting turn of events it would seem as if the Democratic attacks on Brett Kavanaugh have galvanized the right and might just be enough to motivate Republican voters to go to the polls, thereby erasing the gap. This is speculation on my part but we are only a month away from heading to the polls and I think it should be interesting to see how this develops.

    I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your blog. Don’t get discouraged … keep it up!! My husband was an active blogger on WordPress for over 10 years at

    He followed you for years & introduced me to your blog. He passed away 8/30/18 after battling ALS for 5 years. His last blog was November, 2017 as the disease came on like a freight train. While his voice here on earth is silenced, I am glad his influence can continue through the blogs. But I want to encourage you to print all of your blogs so that if WordPress ever goes down, all of your writings will not be lost. I am doing that now with my husband’s.

      I am so sorry to hear about your husband, I remember him and I hope you and your family are doing well.
      Thanks for the words of encouragement, I have to admit it has been tough lately to keep staying upbeat but I am trying. Also, great advice, there are a few posts in particular I want to hold onto if anything ever happens to WordPress.
