  3. When you follow evil you become evil. And in my viewpoint the evil is the so called "leader" also known as the "President". What looks like, smells like, IS.

  8. LOL Maybe he should watch the hearing, watch his comrades not question his new justice but have a constant show of hysteria, besides this wasn't a trial but a hearing not to prove guilt or innocence but to decide if someone should be promoted or hired to fill a honorable position
    Hell, if I needed a babysitter and I was given a list of sitters I doubt that I would pick the one with 12 complaints that were up for review, could possibly have a drinking problem, and has been accused of sexual improprieties. But if you are that kind of a mother, I probably wouldn't want to look at you while I ate either, just sayin'.

  10. Republicans have been creating the divide for a long time and Mitch McConnell has much to do with the divide.

  12. McConnell, "For goodness sake. I think we know who the culprits are here when it comes to the quality of discourse… and it's not coming from the Republican side of the aisle." Trump is not a Republican? Trump has displayed major incivility since he ran for office.

  17. For me the Republicans got their man by stealth and misuse of the unwritten rules and generally agreed principled of running the government. That has set the new rules and they cannot do it if they do not have power. Add the half baked FBI fraudulent investigation and that led to the response for the appointment so they cannot place all the blame on the Dems shoulders.

  18. What was the point in this video? To allow Mitch talking points that would try to deflect the blame of hostility. Mitch blocked Obama's federal judges and the supreme court judge nominee until the Republicans had the power. Again, what was the point Washington Post for this video. To make lies seem truth! Is this why your reporter was allegedly killed by Saudi Arabia agents? I'm just saying??????

    Your Jesus: Your transition from this earth into My New Kingdom will be painless, instant and will be so sudden that you will barely be able to take a breath
    -Wednesday, March 27th, 2013 @ 23:15

    My dearly beloved daughter, come all of you and join with Me in remembrance of the day when you were given the great Gift of Redemption.

    Good Friday must be remembered as the day when the Gates of Paradise were finally opened to welcome God’s children from their exile from Him.
    My death secured for you a future you would never have, had My Father not sent Me as the Messiah.
    My Body was crucified but My death brought you life.

    In this, the time for My Second Coming, My Body will endure the same Crucifixion – only this time it will be My Church, My Mystical Body, which will suffer.

    You must know that I would never allow the crucifixion of My Church to destroy the faith of God’s children.
    So now, I call on every person, every creed, every colour and every race to listen to Me.
    You will soon experience all the signs on earth, which will prove to you that you are the Creation of God. You will know soon that you will never die if you call out to God’s Mercy.

    The future for all of you, who accept that you are a cherished child of God, is bright. I invite you, your family and friends to join in My Kingdom and eat from My Table.

    Your transition from this earth into My New Kingdom will be painless, instant and will be so sudden that you will barely be able to take a breath before its beauty is revealed to you.

    Please do not fear My Second Coming, if you love God. God loves you. I love you.
    The Holy Trinity will embrace the earth and all those, who accept My Hand of Mercy and who show remorse for their sinful lives, will be safe.

    The strong in faith, amongst you, will be taken swiftly. The time for those who lag behind, lacking in faith and who find it impossible to reach out to Me, will be longer.

    You, My faithful followers will have to help the weak and those who are lost.

    My Mercy is so great that I will give all those souls the time needed to take them into the eternal life I have promised all.

    Never feel downhearted when all seems hopeless, as sin continues to devour the souls of the weak.

    We must work, in union, to save those who are so far removed from Me that very little will entice them into My Arms.

    Through your love for each other, miracles will be used to convert those lost souls. This is My Promise to you.
    Prayer, and much of it, will be part of your duty to Me to save those souls from the terrible end, which is being planned by Satan against God’s children who he detests.

    He must not be given these souls.

    My Call is for everyone. These Messages do not exclude any religion. Instead they are given to each child of God with great Love, as you are all equal in His Eyes.

    Be at peace and trust in the Love of God.

    Your Jesus

  20. You caused in civility when you did not rein in Kavanaugh during the inquiry. That could have helped. You did not rein in in civility when Lindsey Graham went into a very ugly hissy fit. The only order was when Dr. Ford spoke and answered. The good old boys let all hell break lose themselves by allowing Kavanaugh to address the hearing with in civility. That is when, instead of letting him be dismissed, you joined him using in civility. You should be ashamed of how that was allowed to get out of control. Yet, none of you were lead away in handcuffs. That was when you confirm yourself using tribalism. You lost yourselves in front of the world. Cementing America as the laughing stock of NATO, that is when Haley choose to leave. You showed the world your truest colors. Old men, empty suits, playing like the children you are.

  21. Yeah the Republicans are the victims here aren't they. Because they decided to impose a nakedly partisan judge with extreme views on the Supreme Court, they conspired to hold back a vast amount of Kavenaugh's background records until just 14 hours before the Judiciary committee started debating him, on Labor Day weekend, they then rammed through the process whilst hammering down on any attempts to scrutinise his record, they were then forced – but only by the media outcry – to admit Blasey-Ford's testimony to be heard, which every single Republican then gave lip-service sympathy and belief to before voting for Kavenaugh anyway, and even Jeff Flake conjoured up a pathetic idea for an FBI inquiry which then never even interviewed either Kavanaugh or Blasey-Ford under caution!

    So I guess you could say it was a bad couple of weeks for America but the GOP have strained to push this appointment through no matter what. Because guys winning is the only thing that matters isn't it? It doesn't matter that the supreme court now has a judge whose temprement and impartiality in dispensing the law is now in tatters. It doesn't matter that Kavanaugh's judgement and ability to rule is going to be objected in many cases going forward. It doesn't matter that the GOP have made themselves look like asses. It doesn't matter that you are all now openly calling Blasey-Ford a hoaxer, a liar and a Democrat stooge. It just matters that you won your game. It matters that Kavanaugh will clearly try and nix any attempt by the FBI or the Senate to bring any possible charges against Trump by the Mueller enquiry regardless of merit.

    The Republicans have handled this whole thing disgracefully. With luck you will get some real justice next month. Don't complain because you created it and you've got it coming to you,

  23. Republicans being the blame for incivility or not is irrelevant as they are perpetuating it by being disrespectful and hostile towards anyone that questions them or their methods. You only have to listen to Fox News broadcasts of the Charlottesville protests or review the questions they put to Bill Clinton during his impeachment hearing to see examples of that. This is not new, what is new is that the Democrats have decided not to be the punching bag the Republicans want. The Republicans are the party in power in all three chambers and they can set the tone but choose not to because it serves them better to be able to lash out and say nasty things when they feel like and to whomever they like. You cannot beg for civility while giving none without looking like a fool. Clearly Republican memories are short. You cannot be seen as reasonable when you unwarrantedly spit in my face one day and then seem to be bewildered the next when I am hostile to you and claim that I am the uncivil one. In social discourse you reap what you sow, start being civil and you may be treated civilly eventually, but it will take a while and with each slip the clock starts over. Respect is built on the promise of being respected, failing that there is no respect for either and you are then only inches above the animals.

  27. MIdterms WILL be the reckoning.
    A GOP that places party over COUNTRY, lies over TRUTH and ONE person ABOVE the law doesn't deserve the PRIVILEGE of holding office. Absolute HYPOCRISY and a DIRECT THREAT to DEMOCRACY.
    2/3 of the American People will determine potus and the GOP fate.
    Make no mistake GOP, midterms WILL be a referendum on BOTH potus and the GOP.
    Expect the DEMISE of the GOP and the coming IMPEACHMENT.
    A BLUE WAVE IS COMING. Bet on it !!

  29. Incivility began with Trump's conversation with Billy Bush. Began with mocking a physically challenged reporter. Began with mocking Gold Star parent's. Began with undercutting the FBI, the real media, the Constitution. Began, 8n fact, with holding up Judge Garland's nomination. McConnell is in no position lecture on civility.

  30. Who was the last Democrat driven from a restaurant by a bunch of lunatics? What Conservative College was set on fire by students denying the right of free speech? What Republican Senator was giving a speech to a crowd of sheep telling them to get in people's faces like that criminal Maxine Waters did? The Dems are desperate AND despicable!
