aside GOP Grumpy Old Perverts Have Been Gas-lighting You About Voter Surge Due To Kavanaugh Saga

As I have previously stated, when a group of people who support a leader of the ilk of the republican President Donald Trump, singularly committed to a white, nationalistic Evangelical theocracy that continually vilifies Muslims, degrades women, condemns LGBTQ people, and shuns foreigners—accuses you of identity politics, mob rule for daring to protest, then you know their claims to victim-hood is fake news. They rule all three branches of government to where this assertion has no merit.

Protests have always been part of the American fabric dating back to our inception as a country.  There have been no major signs of progress in expanding the rights of citizens without this American ritual of getting out to civilly protest / fight to bring attention to injustice, unfairness and to create the climate of change for the better.

The GOP are counting on their outright lies which have no basis in reality and fact to be accepted at face value.

Currently, the GOP are trying to disseminate the lies of how the protesters acted as a mob, and how their behaviors only spurned/ motivated their base of supporters to get out to vote.  Guess what? This is a total fabrication.

Their propaganda campaigns are becoming a bit too obvious.

The truth is that those GOP Grumpy Old Perverts operating in the US Senate, the White House and elsewhere are scared to death where they’re shaking in their boots. Those angry women chasing some who were trying to escape into the men’s congressional restrooms,  are beginning to pay attention, and rightfully so.

Most women were not happy about how this confirmation process of the president’s SCOTUS pick, Judge Brett Kavanaugh went down, and they definitely didn’t approve of how Dr. Christine Blasey Ford had been discounted over her allegations that she was sexually assaulted by a drunken Judge Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge during their high school years.

The latest polls as of 10/9/18, show that 63% of likely women voters plan to vote for Democratic Party candidates.

But wait, there’s more positive news for non-Trumpian women and the men who support them. There are cracks appearing in the Evangelical base’s women as described in the below NY times article.

I had recently commented elsewhere, that who knows what hard line Evangelical women will do in the privacy of the voting booth. After all, what happens in the voting booth, stays in the voting booth.

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S EXAMPLES OF INCITING VIOLENCE

Here’s the rest of the story…

On October 10, 2018, Laura Clawson of the Daily Kos penned the following report, “Nope: Poll confirms Kavanaugh did not create a Republican surge

Excerpts:

“Republicans insisted—and got a number of gullible media figures to believe—that confirming Brett Kavanaugh was a huge political win that would energize and unite the Republican base going into November’s elections. This was a highly dubious claim to begin with, and polling suggests it was more than dubious. It was more like total nonsense, actually.”

“A new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds 46 percent of voters saying Senate Republicans and Joe Manchin “made the wrong decision” in confirming Kavanaugh, to just 40 percent who say it was the right decision. But wait! That’s not all!”

“And following the GOP-led effort to push through his nomination, enthusiasm among Democratic voters has surged. More than 3 in 4 Democrats (77 percent) say they are “very motivated” to turn out and vote in the midterms — more than the 68 percent of Republicans who say they’re “very motivated.”

“These results are similar to a CNN poll that found 51 percent saying Kavanaugh should not have been confirmed, with a similar percent believing Kavanaugh’s accusers. The same poll pegged Democratic enthusiasm above Republican enthusiasm.”

“Republicans insisted—and got a number of gullible media figures to believe—that confirming Brett Kavanaugh was a huge political win that would energize and unite the Republican base going into November’s elections. This was a highly dubious claim to begin with, and polling suggests it was more than dubious. It was more like total nonsense, actually.”

“Republicans may have been able to win a couple hours of news cycle with their insistence that Kavanaugh was Great For Republicans, but it looks like a bit of stagecraft and not an organic upswelling of Republican pride.”

Carol Rains, left, an evangelical Christian in Texas, doesn’t regret her vote for President Trump but would like to see another Republican run against him in 2020. Her friend Linda Leonhart agrees: “I will definitely take a look to see who has the courage to take on a job like this and do what needs to be done.”CreditCreditAllison V.

On October 9, 2018, Elizabeth Dias of the New York Times penned the following report, “Beto O’Rourke May Benefit From an Unlikely Support Group: White Evangelical Women

Excerpts:

“After church on a recent Sunday, Emily Mooney smiled as she told her girlfriends about her public act of rebellion. She had slapped a “Beto for Senate’’ sticker on her S.U.V. and driven it to her family’s evangelical church.”

“But then, across the parking lot, deep in conservative, Bible-belt Texas, she spotted a sign of support: the same exact sticker endorsing Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat who is challenging Senator Ted Cruz.”

“I was like, who is it?” she exclaimed. “Who in this church is doing this?”

“Listening to Ms. Mooney’s story, the four other evangelical moms standing around a kitchen island began to buzz with excitement. All of them go to similarly conservative churches in Dallas. All are longtime Republican voters, solely because they oppose abortion rights. Only one broke ranks to vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. But this November, they have all decided to vote for Mr. O’Rourke, the Democratic upstart who is on the front line of trying to upend politics in deep-red Texas.”

“In the Senate race, one of the most unexpectedly tight in the nation, any small shift among evangelical voters — long a stable base for Republicans — could be a significant loss for Mr. Cruz, who, like President Trump, has made white evangelicals the bulwark of his support.”

“To Democrats nationwide, who have largely written off white evangelical voters, it also sends a signal — not just for the midterms but also for the 2020 presidential campaign — that there are female, religious voters who are open to some of their party’s candidates.”

“The women, who are all in their 30s, described Mr. O’Rourke as providing a stark moral contrast to Mr. Trump, whose policies and behavior they see as fundamentally anti-Christian, especially separating immigrant children from their parents at the border, banning many Muslim refugees and disrespecting women.”

“I care as much about babies at the border as I do about babies in the womb,” said Tess Clarke, one of Ms. Mooney’s friends, confessing that she was “mortified” at how she used to vote, because she had only considered abortion policy. “We’ve been asleep. Now, we’ve woke up.”

“Ms. Clarke, who sells candles poured by refugee women in Dallas, began to weep as she recalled visiting a migrant woman detained and separated from her daughter at the border. When an older white evangelical man recently told her that she couldn’t be a Christian and vote for Mr. O’Rourke, Ms. Clarke was outraged.”

  1. Your first picture, the collage of all the angry republicans making obscene gestures and with their faces contorted in anger, says it all. They have left dignity and respect behind. The vitriol that can even be felt in the air in this country today is unsustainable and counter-productive. I do hope that the projections of democrats coming out ahead next month are correct … they have to be! Surely the bulk of this nation cannot support the sort of behaviours we are seeing from the republicans at these events, or the leaders who have encouraged it.
    Hugs!

    • Dear Jill,

      No one is counting their chickens before their hatched on November 7, 2018. But it does look good. And I love thinking about those women scaring those GOP Grumpy Old Pervert in the senate to where they run into the men’s room to escape.

      If those women protesters had been like a mob as described by the president, they would have gone into the men’s restrooms.

      The president is up to lying again but now it’s so transparent that he looks like he’s just so full of gas where his pants are getting stinky when he pontificates about anything.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • I, too, love that image of the tough old perverts being afraid of a few women. I do not like Trump’s constant referral to it as a ‘mob’, however, for it sets a dangerous precedent and you know his supporters will jump right on that bandwagon. Such mature behaviour for a 72-year-old man, eh?
        Hugs!!!

        • Dear Jill,

          As I was commenting to Keith, the president with his rally in PA. is a tell when there is a devastating hurricane occurring in the panhandle of Florida and then Georgia. He was very critical of President Obama when he did likewise after the clean up process was well under way for Sandy.

          He is desperate to mitigate for the expected losses the GOP are expecting to occur this Nov. 2018. This is why, it is so important that everyone with an ounce of decency get out to vote for Dems. The GOP lawmakers need to be crushed for Dems to have a real chance to be a check on the president.

          We’re close.

          Hugs, Gronda

  2. Gronda, as more is revealed about who the FBI did not talk to and reporters do their job, it will be further embarassing. Trump is adding gasoline on the fire by saying that the accusers are evil, after first saying Ford was credible and then mocking her later in the week. Evil, really?

    Also, the GOP leadership purposefully avoided having Debbie Ramirez come in at all. Her story is credible and actually Yale students rumored about the event at the time. Julie Swetnik has just been put down as not credible. Why? Maybe she is, but as an American citizen, I would want to know she had to say to see if she was credible. But, the FBI not interviewing Kavanaugh was an oversight. He lied under oath to the Senate. That should have been followed up on.

    This is a microcosm of Trump’s misogyny. Even complimenting Nikki Haley, he said she brought “glamor” to the UN Ambassador position – what does that mean? Would he have described a man that way? Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      It’s telling that the president decided to hold his campaign rally in PA. despite his having criticized President Obama for having held an event when the clean up process was well under way for Sandy.

      He and his GOP minions are running scared. He’s trying to mitigate for the expected losses in Nov. He is fighting for his life as he knows the Dems. will subpoena his tax records which will devastate him.

      President Trump sees the train coming. He’s trying to whip up his base to get out to vote even if it means throwing more fire with his ugly rhetoric onto the #MeToo movement.

      I agree with you. All three women deserved to be listened to, a proper investigation conducted and then a decision made. If the GOP Grumpy Old Men had gone through this process, they would have picked another conservative justice and the Dems wouldn’t have a prayer to remedy this situation.

      Hugs, Gronda

  3. this is so easy to prove, just look at the posts on here, Facebook, Twitter, the people on the right side of the political spectrum don’t believe in being politically correct, but it’s worse than that, they don’t believe in being respectful or courteous
