Collins Threatened Over SCOTUS Nomination

http://www.breitbart.com/video/2018/06/29/wapos-rubin-threaten-maines-ll...

Apparently the weak sisters in the Republican party, albeit just barely, have been targeted by the left to make certain they "vote the right way" or face financial retribution to their constituents. Nothing to see there, just the jackals culling the herd as usual. Seems as though the left was bleating about "being fair" just the other day. Perhaps the definition & context of the word fair was as defined by the likes of Mueller or that paragon of judicial fair play Weissmann?

BTW, for those of you that feel the left is not unhinged, it may be of some note that nobody knows on either side who the hell the "sisters" are supposed to vote against. Maybe Rubin conferred with Maxine........

Am I missing something here?

Am I missing something here?

"Instead of circling the capitol with a million people, take the million people to Maine and go to LL Bean and tell them in Maine, ‘You need to leave Maine,’ unless Susan Collins votes the right way,” she said. “That’s how you play hardball. You do it smart. You go to Alaska, you say, ‘You know what, we’re going to start boycotting Alaskan Cruises until your senator votes Trump’s way.'

Gee, do you think they'd

Gee, do you think they'd actually leave? Maybe we could get Kittery Trading Post to add a second store in Freeport. Instead of fly fishing to Bach or whatever demos they do outside there, we could knock down the separate building they tried to banish the firearms to (how'd that turn out?) and develop an ATV obstacle course. Make the Outdoors Great Again!

By forcing the vote before

By forcing the vote before the midterms, Trump is putting a lot of pressure on the red state Dems. He may not need Collins and what's her name.

"By forcing the vote before the midterms, Trump is putting a lot of pressure on the red state Dems. He may not need Collins and what's her name."

That would be an ideal way to have this work out. Not needing the likes of Collins, what's her name Murkowski, and of course McCain, is always a good thing in that the moment you need their vote is the moment they screw the party & their constituents.

Anyone expecting party or any other sort of loyalty here is simply delusional.

The process of Collins once again talking out of three sides of her two faces has apparently again begun. She yesterday said that Roe v Wade was "settled law" and today decides she will not support anyone who "has hostility to Roe v Wade" setting herself up as sole arbiter of who & what was hostile. Hardly a surprise, but none-the-less disgusting & entirely transparent.

As earlier mentioned the jackals have already begun to cull the herd, and Collins & Murkowski are the leading contenders to be the first to fall.

Yeah he's better off leaning

Yeah he's better off leaning on Joe Manchin, who is teetering on the brink and is up for election in November.

Collins has to lean left on this issue, or else risk getting crushed by a Dem.

Wouldn't it be great if he had plenty to make it happen, and not even give her any attention?

Is it just me or has Collins

Is it just me or has Collins become entirely predicable when a key vote might rely even vaguely on her vote. In not so subtle terms, something like a yowling feral cat in heat, she makes it known she is "available for courting" over her vote. If anyone were foolish enough to listen only to her, you could likely get the impression there were no other votes. Much like the attention getting devices of a bratty child, it gets more than a little tired.

It's not just you, Chachi. You're not the only half-dead misogynist here, though you certainly are the most transparent one.

Misogynist? I guess we do spend too much time slamming Silly Susan for left leaning.

Might be that she is supposedly a GOPer, you know smaller government, fiscal conservative, non-intervention or whatever that party stood for at some point.

We could criticize King but we would completely waste the effort, because there's no doubt where he stands, completely with the loony left. Why even bother.

Silly Susie is neither Left or Right.
It seems like she's standing at a fork in the road deciding whether or not to take it.

Gee "Expat" you are getting

Gee "Expat" you are getting to the point of sounding possibly to be a third reiteration of the Underminer, Jasper, Hesheit ubiquitous trolls/rhetorical warts on the butt of humanity. If you could manage a little more nonsensical spittle- faced rage, I could almost be convinced. BTW, did they fill your water dish yet Sunshine? It's gonna be hot today-may want to lighten up on chasing your own tail.

Oh BTW there Sunshine, both Collins and Agnes are on about the same level of disdain in my little world. Grandstanders who make a fetish of making themselves the center of some self-created little drama at every turn, and being entirely self-serving in every regard has nothing to do with their being of one sex or the other.

Pro-choice advocates send

Pro-choice advocates send wire COAT HANGERS to Sen. Susan Collins ahead of the Supreme Court nominee vote as a chilling reminder of what happens when abortion is illegal

SOURCE

" . . The point of sending hangers to Collins, said social media users, was to underline the fact that just because abortion is illegal doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Rather, it typically goes on in a much more dangerous, and even deadly, way . . "
_________________________________________________________________________________

I don't know. What, with the internet and all, I don't see coat hangars making a comeback.

In an odd coincidence, just a few days ago I cleaned out my closet and threw out a dozen or more. I never imagined they might come in handy some day.

Of course they should wait

Of course they should wait until she is governor someday.
If overturned it becomes a states right issue. A simple fact that seems to have been lost
on the pro side . We would be so much better off if the entire thing was put back in a closet .

I say roe wade is settled law

I say roe wade is settled law, but I find it somewhat ironic that the pro illegal immigration crowd continually say we must import more 3rd world young blood and workers into our nation to replace our declining population while... millionsof ours go into the incinerators.

Let's notice that the 3rd worlders don't abort much, they view children as valued commodities whether racing to the border and getting sympathy or later on when appling for welfare assistance.

Also let's not forget that the same that hold roe in such esteem, many also want open borders to increase the welfare roles that invariably vote liberal democrat.

That's right we are too stupid to breed and too stupid to stop that, they that do breed all so well, from bankrupting our country with more welfare costs. I've read that only a quarter of those coming here actually aren't on the welfare roll after a time.

The left is always saying

The left is always saying that a majority supports abortion on demand, even producing numerous polls purported to demonstrate this support. So why is it still just a SCOTUS decision? Stop relying on judges - put it to a vote, as Ireland did. Then at least it won't be corrupting every supreme court nomination.

Or perhaps those polls are fake, and the left either knows or fears the effort would fail?

Abortion is just another issue the poverty pimp plantation owner democrats hang their hat on. Most of them really don't care either way except when it keeps them in power.

Vote? Think back to the Equal Rights Amendment, a liberal attempt to stay in power via advocacy for it !
Any such move is full of risks for the pro side.

Ah, yes. The *other* reason.

Ah, yes. The *other* reason. Putting it to a vote would put all the details before the entire electorate, not just carefully selected details before a tiny elite group.

For the same reason you'll never see a video of an actual abortion on PBS, they'll never allow all the details to be confirmed publicly. The folks who put videos of shivering puppies before our eyes *know* how the average person would react to the truth.

In the meantime Susie has her out on vote.
She said will not ask but her vote must go to one who respects precedent !
That of course is saying Roe must stay.

Never is the speaking about precedent ,not over turned, ever include a case successfully argued the precedent has been wrong!

Susie should just shut up !

She'll be up for re-election in 2020 when Trump is.

No doubt her political calculators are going through batteries at a record clip.
