Tucker Carlson: This is how DEMS plan to kill Kavanaugh nomination

(National SentinelStrategery: Late Friday Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley took to Twitter to announce he’d granted Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, another delay after she said, through her lawyer, she would not be ready to testify before his committee by early next week.

The delay was hugely disappointing to supporters of Judge Kavanaugh because they a) don’t buy Ford’s 36-year-old allegations given the suspicion and controversies surrounding them; and b) believe that he will make a fine Supreme Court justice for decades to come.

It’s not clear why Grassley, R-Iowa, caved again. It’s also not clear why he would complain that he believes Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is running the Senate rather than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., especially since McConnell told a gathering in D.C. on Friday — in no uncertain terms — that Kavanaugh would “soon” be seated at the high court.

What is crystal clear, however, is that the Democrats are using Ford to permanently kill Kavanaugh’s nomination — and any subsequent nomination that POTUS Donald Trump would make.

As Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained on his program Friday night, there are only days left before Kavanaugh’s nomination expires per Senate rules — and that’s what Democrats are playing for.




He noted:

Here are the basic facts about it. According to the original schedule most of us assumed was real two weeks ago the Senate should have already voted on the nomination by now and Kavanaugh almost certainly would have been confirmed. He had the numbers. And then the wrinkle.

Democrats leaked the name of Christine Ford to the press. Ford alleges that sometime back in high school, about 36 years ago, Kavanaugh jumped on her at a party and groped her over her clothes. She’s provided very few details including when and where it allegedly happened. Kavanaugh has denied the story entirely and so has the other person Ford said was present, a man named Mark Judge. That’s pretty much what we know.

In order to know more, we’re going to need to hear from Christine Ford. But both sides once agreed on that because it’s obvious she should have a chance to speak. Everyone thought that was a good idea. It was a consensus view. Republicans in the Senate asked for her to testify this week, she refused.

They offered to send a staff to her house in California to take her testimony privately and she refused that too. Finally, they asked her to testify this coming Monday, she said she won’t but she won’t explain why she won’t. Ford’s attorneys now say she’s willing to explain herself in the Senate next Thursday.

Thursday is a significant date in this story. 

Because of Senate rules which are complex, if Ford testifies next Thursday the vote on Kavanaugh will be pushed back at least another week. In this environment that very well means – forever. His nomination will be over.

And so will any Trump nomination to the court.

There is no time before the midterms for the White House to introduce and vet a new candidate. Democrats will have prevented the president from filling this vacancy. We’ll have just eight justices for the foreseeable future. And probably until there is another Democratic president.

You may have voted for Trump in hope that he would put reasonable people on the Supreme Court. But TOUGH!

Now, no doubt that McConnell, Grassley, and the entire Republican caucus in the Senate is also aware of this.

The problem is, too many Republicans in power seem far too willing to believe the BS polling they’re being given regarding the mood of the country when it comes to Kavanaugh’s nomination and Ford’s allegations.

Beyond that, a Supreme Court nominee should not be based on internal or external polling. It is the prerogative of the President to nominate whomever he chooses. It is then the prerogative of the Senate to consent or not.

In this case, non-consent would be based not on substantial evidence that the nominee is tainted legally, but on the mere allegations of wrongdoing — and on Democrats’ oft-stated strategy to do whatever they can to kill off Kavanaugh’s nomination.

This entire ordeal with Ford seems like that strategy is being played out. 

The question is, why are Republicans playing along?

    I dont buy this. The senate can confirm Kavanaugh anytime they are in session.

    • What is Tucker talking about, “… days left?” Kavanaugh’s appointment has until the 114th Congress expires on January 3, 2019.

  2. So what did they get on grassley?

  3. I am so sick of old, weak, white RINOS sabotaging our president! Boo Grassley, Boo Sessions!

  4. If he isn’t confirmed on monday it’s over, checkmate.

  5. It’s Monday or Never.

    • If Monday ends up being another disaster then Kavanaugh will seriously consider giving up due to cowardice of republicans. And then the senate is in jeopardy.

  6. Al of these short delays are for the purpose of giving the accusers democrat
    handlers time to prep and practice answers to GOP questions.

  7. WOW! By her logic when she comes East it will be the PERFECT chance for me to collect the $1,000.00 she owes me from back when she was 18 & 1/2, and it is on HER to prove she doesn’t, even though I have no proof, no paperwork, no witnesses, and no WITNESSES! Oh – and about 10,000 other people have the same issue with her!

  8. What a bunch of incompetent boneheads. Start the voting and give the dems the middle finger, including that political hack Ford.

    • Cowards Grassley and McConnell, if they were not cowards, would force the senate to vote. It’s hard to believe that there would not be 50+ votes. It’s unlikely that those 3 wavering republicans would vote against Kavanaugh. It’s unlikely that those 4 wavering democrats would all vote against Kavanaugh. Force senators to act like leaders and cast votes.

  9. In the upcoming strife, we shall find answers to questions unasked.

  10. Thiscis all being played for sn audience of 4… Senators Flake, Corker, Collins and Murkowski. All 4 should sign a letter saying that Ford’s team has one hour to agree to the latest Republican proposal or the discussion is OVER and there will be a vote on Monday. Get these four senators on board and Kavanaugh will be confirmed without the Dems being able to stop it.

  11. this is ALL BS.
    THE COMMUNIST DEMORATS have been calling for a DELAY FROM DAY ONE.
    THE JUDGE JUST NEEDS CONFIRMED AND BE DONE WITH THIS HORSE AND PONY SHOW.

    The Democrats, made fools of their selves with their paid protestors and rabid outbursts, not to mention their shameless, uneducated gotcha questions. Yet, in his love for the Law and democracy, Kavanaugh turned to his daughters and her team members and quietly stated with a smile “this is democracy in action and it gets very noisy at times”.

    Dr. Christine Blasey heads Stanford University’s CIA Undergraduate Internship Program. She is accusing Supreme Court nominee Judge Britt Cavanaugh of misconduct. …. Dr. Ford at a pool party 3? years ago http://themillenniumreport.com
