GOP decries Dems' 'mob rule,' flipping the script

The U.S. Supreme Court is seen at sunset in Washington Thursday

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 unsafe levels. Numerous most religious Americans, particularly Republicans, believe there are threats to religion, or at least threats to the Christian religion.

Top Republicans have acknowledged that television scenes of anti-Kavanaugh protesters berating senators and interrupting Senate debate have helped them.

It's not unusual for Republicans and Democrats alike to sharpen their rhetoric as elections approach in hopes of drawing loyal voters to the polls.

The newly-elected 114th member of the country's highest court was accused by California professor Christine Blasey Ford of sexually assaulting her. After White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was "denied service" at a restaurant in Lexington, Va., (she was thrown out) and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson was harassed out of a restaurant in Washington, D.C., "Republicans cast Democrats as overreacting and unable to withhold their animus toward Trump".

As of Wednesday morning, Bay County, which includes Panama City, close to where Michael made landfall, had received 133 Republican ballots, 83 from Democrats, 39 from unaffiliated voters and one from a third-party voter. On a recent swing through Texas, Trump Jr. made light of allegations that Kavanaugh, who told a Senate committee he liked beer, once was a heavy drinker.

"We were literally under assault ourselves", McConnell said. Guilfoyle, listed as cohost on almost all of Trump Jr.'s events, has drawn enough of a powerhouse reaction from their audiences that she intends to branch off and do more events on her own, according to two people familiar with the matter. They cite numerous comments about Mexicans, Muslims, African countries.

"Lose the Senate, and the project of confirming judges is over for the last two years of President Trump", McConnell said in an interview with NPR in his Capitol Hill office.

THE WHITE HOUSENot all the uncivil talk is so violent.

The Weird Rhythm Of The Christine Blasey Ford Hearing
The Supreme Court nominee has been "incandescent" - as in extremely angry - according to one person involved in his preparation. She laughed nervously when Senator Grassley, the Republican chair of the committee, replied that no one made his coffee right.

Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin used the Congressional Review Act to force a vote to overturn the Trump administration rule to expand short-term insurance plans.

As with the Vox story above, Republicans only have 25 days remaining to push their message and defend seats they believe they can win. And Democratic activists were not pleased. With Kavanaugh's addition to the bench, Democrats and liberal sections of Americans fear there will now be a pronounced, conservative tilt in the court. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., who had recently died.

And while just 43 percent of likely OH voters said they support Trump's nomination of Kavanaugh, 80 percent of Republicans said they backed the new justice.

Black lawmakers said they were targeted by racial epithets and spat upon during a smaller rally by several thousand tea party supporters in March 2010, as Congress was voting on the health care legislation.

"Right now, it doesn't seem like there's any red meat for Republican-leaning independents and straight independents to come out and vote", Paleologos said.

The video includes footage of former Attorney General Eric Holder saying, "When they go low, we kick them". And one of the reasons I was so proud of the result last Saturday on Judge Kavanaugh is that we stood up for two things.

Gunman James Hodgkinson, killed at the scene by officers, was infuriated by Trump's election.

Trump Jr.'s appeal can be traced in part to his social media accounts, where he regularly posts photos of himself wearing camouflage as he hunts big game and tries to catch sharks off the waters of Florida.
