Mr. Kavanaugh will defer completely to the Executive Branch, until there's a Democrat in office; at which point he will suddenly discover judicial oversight, and apply it in the extreme. Until, of course, the next Republican.

He can't be fired. Senator Collins received a non-verbal indication from a West Wing staffer she'd just met that morning assuring her the President would never do such a cynical, self-interested thing, and as we all know, that's as ironclad as guarantees come.

Believe me, Trump is planning on blaming China for election interference once the Democrats win the house. He is already laying the groundwork. This is all pre-planned. He neglects to mention any Russian interference only Chinese interference. Trump is desperate because once the Democrats take over the house his tax returns will finally be turned over and there will finally be real oversight not Devin Nunes bogus oversight.

I really appreciate the activism and courage of these protesters. But don't forget, there are a lot more of us who might not be able to make it to the Capitol, who can make it to the polls to vote these rascals out. The protest against Judge Kavanaugh is not limited to women; there are lots of old geezers like me that are just as mad.

Apparently this guy posed a threat to Emperor Xi. A Chinese national once explained to me that these corruption investigations are nothing but a cover for political purges as the most powerful Politburo players get rid of potential political enemies and shore up their loyalists.

If you don't want a politicized SCOTUS, don't force SCOTUS to decide political questions. Most of the contentious issues cited have been decided in other countries through legislation, not court rulings.
Changing how society works is a job for Congress, not a junta of five octogenarians.

The naked power grab is complete by a party that doesn't even pretend to put the country first. What a disgrace!
Women are less safe in America because the party in power has shown us that it's OK to sexually assault them. The President will make fun of you if you come forward.

A man elected by a minority of Americans nominates another who will be confirmed by senators representing a minority of Americans. But, the majority has to suffer both.
Tyranny of the minority is not what our Founding Fathers had in mind.

The disappearance of high-level Chinese officials ought to be seen as a worrying sign. Meng Hongwei was deputy minister of public security and had control over China’s secret police, before becoming president of Interpol in 2016.
Beijing saw Meng’s election as a chance to enlist international help in tracking down corrupt Chinese officials living abroad, as part of Xi Jinping’s much-publicized anti-graft crusade. But critics say the drive is merely a way for Xi to eliminate political enemies. But critics said Meng’s appointment was “extraordinarily” worrying, given China’s longstanding practice of trying to use Interpol to arrest dissidents and critics abroad.
Western countries have also been wary of extradition treaties with China due to concerns over the mistreatment of criminal suspects, and its reluctance to provide proof of suspects’ crimes. Some countries have accused Chinese law enforcement agents of operating undercover on their territory without consent, as part of their Operation Fox Hunt. Of the country’s 100 most-wanted corruption suspects who had fled China in recent years, many of whom have since been returned.

A majority of legal experts, and people who knew Brett Kavanaugh believe he lied under oath.
A country that allows the obscenity that is Twitler to infest the white house, and abides the corruption that is the Republican congress, is going to celebrate the appointment of an exemplary kangaroo onto its highest court.

If they can rush an investigation like this through so quickly, why can't Trump set a strict timeline for the IRS to finish auditing his tax returns, so they can finally be released?
I could have done a more thorough investigation with an Ovaltine decoder ring.

As for Brexit, I think it's interesting that all of the masterminds behind the movement essentially left May to handle things, yet continue to criticize her for being unable to do it the way they want.
At this point, their only hope is that the Liberal Democrats win a majority in the next election. And to show you just how bad the situation is, that's a pretty dim hope - because it relies on the intelligence of the British voters.

China, if you are listening (and watching-and I know you are) this is exactly why we in the West do not trust China's intentions. You're actions of scooping up a handful of sand and declaring the whole of the South China Sea as belonging to China simply is not acceptable.
If anybody wants to peer into the future and see what a China Dominated world would look like, they only need look at the way China treats the South China Sea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the Tibetans and Uighurs to see the world of tomorrow.
