Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. were hoping and praying that retiring Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee were going to join the POS Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins in stopping the Senate from confirming the Supreme Court nominee that our President will announce later this week.

Their hopes and dreams have gone up in smoke!

The amount of pressure that the Mormons in Utah are putting on Mitt Romney must be enormous. The fact that he has yet to come out and take the same position as the two Witches says a lot. I have a funny feeling that he knows his vote against the nominee would not be the deciding vote. It would only allow a 50-50 tie that Vice President Pence would break. He will wait to see if there is any other Republican that is waffling. Problem for him is that there isn’t going to be any of the remaining that will vote no.

At this point, our President will select either Amy Corey Barrett or Barbara Lagoa.

From the article linked above:

Two women are emerging as the front-runners to replace the late Justice Ruth Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

[…] According to Reuters,  Trump has “praised” Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the Chicago-based 7th Circuit Court of Appeals and Judge Barbara Lagoa of the Atlanta-based 11th Circuit as possible replacements for Ginsburg.

As of Saturday night, other media outlets were reporting that Barrett and Lagoa were likely picks, reflecting that Trump praised them in response to questions while leaving the White House on Saturday.

[…] He said Barrett is “very respected.”

When asked about Lagoa, Trump called her an “extraordinary person.”

“I’ve heard incredible things about her. I don’t know her,” he said. “She’s Hispanic and highly respected.”

[…] According to The Washington Post, Barrett clerked for former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Trump appointed Barrett, 48, to her current position in 2017.

She formerly taught at the Notre Dame University Law School, according to Fox News.

Her Catholic faith emerged as a bone of contention during her confirmation.

“The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern,” Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said at the time.

“It’s never appropriate for a judge to impose that judge’s personal convictions, whether they arise from faith or anywhere else, on the law,” Barrett replied, according to Fox.

Barrett was reportedly on Trump’s shortlist in 2018 when he nominated now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the court.

Lagoa formerly served on the Florida Supreme Court.

A former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida, she also was a district judge on the Florida 3rd District Court of Appeals, according to ABC.

Representative Jim Jordan gave his perspective and analysis on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and his thoughts on her replacement. He also discussed the potential for investigative findings from the Durham probe to surface prior to the election.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the expanding peace agreements in the middle-east between Israel and Arab nations.

Yesterday our President’s interview with Mark Levin which was recorded on September 17th was shown on Mark’s Sunday show on Fox; Life, Liberty & Levin.

Here are some shorter video clips:

Iran just got punched in the mouth!

From the article linked above:

All international sanctions on Iran that were lifted as part of the Obama administration’s landmark nuclear deal with the country have come back into effect as of Saturday evening, removing the last remaining vestiges of the agreement that were still in place.

The renewal of these sanctions comes after months of last-ditch diplomatic efforts by the Trump administration to ensure a United Nations ban on Iran’s purchase of advanced weapons was not lifted. This effort was unsuccessful after it failed to garner backing from traditional European allies on the U.N.’s Security Council. Following that bid, the United States exercised its right under the original 2015 accord to reimpose a litany of sanctions on Tehran that have been waived since the accord was signed and endorsed by the U.N. With the reimposition of these sanctions, the nuclear deal that President Donald Trump abandoned in 2018 is effectively voided.

Members of the U.N. Security Council were powerless to stop the United States from triggering what is known as “snapback”—a mechanism written into the original agreement that permits any member nation to reimpose international sanctions. The move is likely to further enflame ongoing tensions with Iran and also complicate America’s relationship with some its closest allies, including France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Each of these countries stood in the way of U.S. efforts to extend the Iran arms ban as they sought to keep the nuclear accord on life support.

[…] The Trump administration could use the sanctions to penalize any country or business that does not end its relationship with Iran. Pompeo indicated the administration will not hesitate to enforce the sanctions.

In addition to extending the arms embargo, the reimposed sanctions include restrictions on Iran’s processing of uranium—the key component in a nuclear weapon—and its testing of ballistic missiles, which have been a source of regional tension since the nuclear deal took effect. They also bar countries from transferring nuclear and missile-related technologies to Iran.

The Trump administration also will announce “a range of additional measures” on Iran in the coming days, according to Pompeo, a move meant to “hold violators accountable.”

ICE is continuing to pickup the trash!

What an absolutely incredible moment:

Meanwhile their Monster continues to reck havoc throughout our country! I hope and pray that they don’t stop and actually get even more crazier.

The MORONS blaming climate change for why the West Coast is on fire need to go take a hike with their BS!

From the article linked above:

At least six men in Oregon have been accused of intentionally setting blazes during the state’s devastating wildfire season, according to a report.

[…] Instead, some of the blazes were attributed to petty beef, relationship troubles and enjoying the “smell of smoke,” officials said.

  1. As a note to Flep — your chosen format will never yield the immediate gratification of other posters…….because people will actually read your posts. And maybe even think about them.

    And only then leave a comment.

    You should probably consider it more a feature than a bug.

    Thank you, again, for keeping us really informed.

    1. Absolutely agree! I look forward to these reports every morning. I don’t comment much, in fact, this is my first. But have looked forward to Flep daily reports since the Old Treehouse and before Trump was elected. Keep up the great work Flep, and thank you for all you do. Your commitment to doing this is outstanding and much appreciated. Thank you again.

        1. There is an optical illusion of a revolving silhouette of a ballerina en pointe — just black on white. It was purposely made so that it could be revolving clockwise or anti-clockwise — there were no depth clues. The amusing thing is that most people immediately seize on one direction of rotation (and the great majority choose one, probably goes with handedness) — but, through sheer force of will, many people can concentrate and perceive it rotating the other way.

          At first, I thought the rotating palm tree might be similar….but the palm fronds kept getting in the way.

    1. Have a brother-in-law who is in law enforcement in Swanton. Unfortunately he will miss the event due to medical reasons. The chief is making him worked extra shifts afterwards to relieve some the other officers who are working it with the advance teams. However, the area is massively pro-PDT and it extends well into southern Michigan.

          1. There was a tweet on yesterday’s daily IIRC, that there have been a number of justices confirmed in only a few DAYS, in three or four cases, ZERO DAYS (i.e. the same day as the nomination). So, yes, it is indeed possible. Also, Barrett has been through the confirmation process already, so she should be considered “vetted”, though the DEMONicRATS will scream and whine every step of the way.

            It’s what they do, with everything. Prolonged adolescence, though I’m beginning to think it’s prolonged “terrible twos”, as they don’t even show the relative maturity of an adolescent…

  7. The idea of picking Lagoa for hispanic and FL votes really sticks in my craw.

    It is especially egregious if the appointment is made for special interest (LBGT) political agenda reasons.

    Liked by 7 people

    1. Yep – I agree. Let’s throw down with Barrett and move on from Lagoa.

      Maybe I am just so out of the mainstream it hurts, however, a candidate needs to have enough sense to not support killing children or else they do not deserve my vote. The pro-life issue will always be the top priority on my list. We should not be intentionally killing our future who are God’s children. I want to be able to look my Savior in the face with a clear conscience on the issue. I wish I had come to this realization when I was younger and I thank the Lord for his sacrifice for my sins. I repented and desire to sin no more. As a nation we need to do the same.

      It is the same with using physicians. If they subscribe to pro-choice or are Darwinian in their thinking/training I will not use them. Once you know what you know it changes how you view life and the world.

    2. It also flies in the face of picking the best person for the job, and avoiding “political” (as it were) appointments to the court, which is supposed to be (yeah, I know) completely impartial.

      Another factor is that VSGPDJT has already said he was saving Barrett as RBG’s replacement. I fear that if he passes over her this time, she will be “an eternal bridesmaid”, as it were.

      Looking at the ages of some of the justices, and the fact that Sotomayor (and perhaps Kagan) is not in the best of health, there will probably be more openings before long, anyway. And who knows what the results of the Lolita Express will bring…..

      Liked by 4 people

        1. Yes. She’s also four years older than Barrett, who is 48.

          I think VSGPDJT should pick the most conservative, most Constitutionalist/Originalist (but I repeat myself), most competent person for the job, and leave the nit-picking for the peanut gallery. There also is the question of “attackability” (for lack of a better term, say, baggage), which shouldn’t be an issue, but, judging by the likes of Roberts (and the ChiComs’ puppets), is a HUGE issue…

          Liked by 4 people

            1. Yep. The first thought that went through my mind looking at her was, “she’s ill”. Sad, but true. Another thing that was interesting was the first pair of pictures that went up showed Barrett in a much better light as compared to Lagoa; the newer picture pair has an older-looking Barrett paired with a slightly better (as compared to before) Lagoa…

              The last thing the SC needs is another justice with health issues. I think it’s Sotomayor that has severe, albeit treatable diabetes, and Kagan is not too well (or the other way ’round). Breyer is 82, though he seems to be OK…

  9. Since we won’t have a SC nominee until Friday or Saturday, guessing…
    – Saturday. Take some steam out of YSM yammering.
    – Lagoa likely nominee. Understand Barret is or was odds on favorite.
    – Lagoa was confirmed in 2019 with 80-15 vote. Perhaps tougher for D-Rats to voate against Laoga, after voting for her.
    – Lagoa Hispanic.

    – Couple weeks of meet and greet with Senators.

    – Both Lagoa and Barrett confirmed under President Trump’s watch.
    – Both can skip the Senate Judicial committee, if Turtle and Ms Lindsey so wish. A major lus in my mind. Less YSM and hype from the likes of Hoe, DiFi, Durbin…

    – Streamlines process.

    Seated on SC well before 3 November. Likely early October.

    Yea. Not a strategist and usually wrong. But, it is my guess.. .

          I go with Barrett. And for the rest of the nominees, may the most qualified be picked, regardless of race, sex, planet of origin (OK, just kidding), etc. Pro-Life, Pro-Family, and Pro-USA from a Judeo-Christian perspective are what I care about, along with a Constitutionalist/Originalist frame of reference and a good legal mind, and the capability and propensity to ask probing questions, clearly define issues, and document/write clear, concise, and thorough decisions…
