The US Senate voted yesterday on whether or not to allow sanctions against Russia to be lifted. All Democratic Senators voted to retain the sanctions. I was pleased to see these Republican Senators vote with the Democrats to retain the sanctions:
I am still scratching my head trying to figure out how all the Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee can turn their back on non-investigated sexual assault charges and vote to pass along SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh for a full Senate vote. Maybe it is because of the invisible glasses that Orrin Hatch wears that allows him to see the truth that we cannot see.
Maybe it is because Lindsey Graham can’t imagine sexually assaulting a female. I wonder what kind of kompromat the Russians are holding over Graham’s head that have made him take such a 180 degree turn and become such a Trump toadie. Just look at the change …
With the Republican primary in New Hampshire less than a month away, New Hampshire taxpayers will be absorbing a higher than normal cost for the election.
Once again, the upcoming Republican candidate debate will be preceded by a debate among the candidates that didn’t make the cut for the main debate. Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham will meet in the junior debate before the ten top candidates debate. In an effort to generate interest, any interest, in the undercard debate, the four candidates have agreed to change the format of the debate to a strip poker game during which they will casually debate the issues. This format was only approved under the condition that NJ Governor Chris Christie not be allowed to participate under any circumstances.
