GOP ramps up election-season warning of 'toxic' Dem tactics

President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans are forecasting nightmarish Democratic "mob rule" to amp up GOP voters for next month's critical midterm elections, flipping the script from complaints that it's Trump and the Tea Party movement who've boosted rowdy and divisive tactics to risky levels.

The Kavanaugh confirmation process is believed by many to have been the most contentious for a nominee to the high court in modern history.

"We won't know until things happen", he told TIME.

"After an unnecessarily partisan, divisive national debate, Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation was a victory for those who value fairness, process, and the presumption of innocence", Hatch said in response to the poll. Kavanaugh also exhibited a temperament not befitting a sales clerk at your local mall, let alone someone who will represent and interpret the Constitution.

Republican Susan Collins of ME joined with Democrats to support the resolution, but the vote resulted in a 50-50 tie, failing to achieve a majority.

The all-male line-up on the Republican side drew attention during the confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct in high school and college. He kept his word and, in the battle for Kavanaugh, he led from the front, even mocking the credibility of the primary accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

As Gorsuch did in his first arguments past year, Kavanaugh focused heavily on the importance of following earlier decisions of the court.

At one point, Kavanaugh could be seen having a lighthearted exchange with liberal Justice Elena Kagan, seated next to him. The court will decide what constitutes a "serious or violent felony" under the act. Gorsuch responded with a faux grimace of pain.

Iraq, Afghanistan the worst passports for travel, Japan the best: Index
The authority on global passport rankings, the Henley Passport Index , recently released its data for 2018. In this year's ranking, both United Kingdom and U.S. have slipped the charts with 186 destinations.

The day before his charity appearance he took his seat on the Supreme Court bench for the first time, and was reportedly jovial.

The cases, involving a Florida robbery and burglaries in Tennessee and Arkansas, challenged the types of crimes that qualify as violent felonies under that law and can lead to 15-year mandatory minimum sentences. Several justices asked whether pinching amounts to violence and Justice Sonia Sotomayor appeared to playfully pinch Gorsuch.

Roberts explained in the letter, addressed to Timothy Tymkovich, the Chief Judge for the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, that the complaints had originally been sent to the D.C. Circuit Court, where Kavanaugh previously sat, but that he had received requests from a judge on that court to transfer it to another circuit. President Barack Obama's health care law, which Trump and Republicans have weakened but failed to repeal, created more limited versions of those plans, lasting up to just three months. And to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. Had Kavanaugh handled the issue with more grace, perhaps the argument would have been different.

Even though she disagreed with Clinton's comments, Heitkamp stood with her on pressing the issue of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, believing that the allegations should have blocked his confirmation.

He said that "under historic scrutiny", Mr Kavanaugh was "proven innocent".

"[Kavanaugh's swearing-in ceremony at the White House on Monday resembled] a political rally that further undermined the image and integrity of the court, '" Clinton continued in her CNN interview.

Trump on Twitter on Tuesday said he was "very proud" of Kavanaugh and his family, and disparaged the anti-Kavanaugh protesters.
