Chicago's Third Women's March Focuses On The Polls

Protesters greeted newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for his first day of work on Tuesday dressed as characters from the TV show The Handmaid's Tale

Republicans have criticized their political counterparts in recent weeks for rhetoric they say is irresponsible and likely to spur unstable or radical citizens to acts of violence.

Senate Democrats' deal with McConnell is the second time in just two months that Schumer has agreed to help the GOP confirm a slew of Trump's federal court nominees-many of which are hand-picked by the right-wing Federalist Society-with nearly zero debate or public scrutiny.

But Kondik also added that "it's possible by time the election comes around, the Brett Kavanaugh story won't have changed anything".

More broadly, the stakes in November for Democrats are extremely high. On leaving the Supreme Court, such a removed Justice may choose to accept and fill any vacant Article III judgeship, without further nomination to that particular judgeship by the President and without the advice and consent of the Senate. And the president is now using the hard feelings stemming from the Kavanaugh battle to rally Republican voters. Republican congressional leaders like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan both had abysmal approval ratings (46 percent unfavorable and 25 percent favorable for the former, 49 percent unfavorable and 32 percent favorable for the latter), with the best showing for a national Republican figure going to Vice President Mike Pence, who had 45 percent unfavorable and 41 percent favorable. "We will increase our majorities".

Among Republicans, it has been a regular talking point, practically a piece of conventional wisdom, that confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court before the midterm elections would help motivate their voters to go to the polls. "I speak up when I think it's necessary".

"We can not accept a system that empowers a man who repeatedly lied under oath and a judiciary review process that only performs a sham of an investigation into his misconduct", the letter continues, referencing allegations of perjury and sexual assault that have been levied against the newest member of the nation's highest court, and the "charade" of an FBI investigation conducted to address the assault claims, which Kavanaugh has denied. Mark Miloscia, and the 26th District, a seat left open by Republican Sen.

"It is infuriating to women to watch that display that we watched in that Senate committee hearing, and to see that that man was still confirmed", Schiller said. All but one Democrat voted against.

British PM May briefed inner cabinet 'Brexit deal close'
Speaking to reporters in Brussels, Margaritis Schinas said: "We are not there yet". Another summit in November is planned to close the deal.

"We have lifted the voices of millions of survivors of sexual assault".

"Women are angry, and we start to feel comfortable in this anger", she said. "If Justice Roberts sits on the complaints, then they will reside in a kind of purgatory and will never be adjudicated", said New York University law professor Stephen Gillers. McConnell has marveled at the way the Supreme Court fight is animating Republican voters - who, polls showed, had been less enthusiastic before Kavanaugh advanced.

In court, Kavanaugh asked questions of both sides in arguments over increased prison sentences for repeat offenders.

Kavanaugh officially took the oath in a more hurried, private procedure Saturday, but the White House version will be a chance for the Trump administration to celebrate publicly.

Women are said to be playing a big role in the coming elections.

Later, in Orlando, he called Kavanaugh "a flawless person" and said "evil" people had tried to derail him with "False charges" and "False accusations".
