The Two Witches Caption Contest

This is the 186th world-famous FOTM Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic (h/t DCG):

About the pic: The pic of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), 85, apparently badgering Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), 61, was taken around the time of the Kavanaugh hearings. Murkowski was the only Republican senator who voted against Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

You know the drill:

  • Enter the contest by submitting your caption as a comment on this thread (scroll down until you see the “LEAVE A REPLY” box), not via email or on Facebook.
  • The winner of the Caption Contest will get a gorgeous Award Certificate of Excellence and a year’s free subscription to FOTM:D
  • FOTM writers will vote for the winner.
  • Any captions proffered by FOTM writers, no matter how brilliant (ha ha), will not be considered. :(

This contest will be closed in a week, at the end of next Tuesday, October 30, 2018.

To get the contest going, here’s my caption:

Feinstein: “Remember the dead horse’s head scene from The Godfather?”

By the way, according to an Italian government report, the country’s mayors and local administrators received 212 threats from organized crime in 2010, especially in Italy’s underdeveloped south. The most common ways to threaten administrators who refuse to collude with the Mafia are to burn their cars, mail them envelopes containing bullets, or send boxes with severed animal heads, an act reminiscent of a memorable scene involving the head of a racehorse in “The Godfather.” (Reuters)

Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as Supreme Court Justice!

UPDATE (Oct. 9):

Justice Brett Kavanaugh is already at work! He hired his clerks — all women — and will participate in oral arguments before the Supreme Court today.

This afternoon, Brett Kavanaugh, 53, was sworn in as 114th Supreme Court justice, hours after the Senate voted 50-48 to confirm him.

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the constitutional oath and retired Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial one.

The quick swearing-in enables Kavanaugh to begin work immediately in advance of arguments at the court Tuesday.

The Senate voted today to confirm U.S. District Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be the next Associate Justice on the Supreme Court, replacing pro-abortion Justice Anthony Kennedy following his retirement.

Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote:

  • All Democrat senators, except Joe Manchin (WV), voted “no” against Kavanaugh’s nomination.
  • All Republican senators voted “yes,” except pro-abort Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), who voted “present”, and pro-life Steve Daines (Montana), who supported Kavanaugh but was absent due to his daughter’s wedding.

Kavanaugh secured enough votes yesterday when Senators Susan Collins (R) and Joe Manchin (D) agreed to support him.

Last night, Sen. Collins delivered an extended defense of Kavanaugh’s record and announced her intention to vote in favor of his confirmation. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) took to Twitter to praise Collins’ “strongly held principles” and to denounce the Left’s threats against Collins:

“Most will never know the full extent of the efforts to intimidate & threaten @SenatorCollins on the #Kavanaugh vote. I am not talking about political pressure or people screaming at her in an elevator. I am talking about vicious, vile & dangerous actions.”

On Twitter, deranged Leftists call Collins a “traitor to women”, a “rape apologist”, and demand she be forever harassed in public as a punishment for her vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Yesterday, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed for cloture on Kavanaugh’s nomination, he said:

“This evening, the Senate will receive the results of the FBI’s supplemental background investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. This is now the seventh time the FBI has looked into Judge Kavanaugh’s background. And this information comes on top of what has already been one of the most thorough, most exhaustive Senate reviews of any Supreme Court nominee in our nation’s history.

Five days of public hearings. Sixty-five private meetings with Senators. More than 1,200 responses to written questions from members. More than 500,000 pages of documents for review — the most produced for any Supreme Court nomination in history. And the 300-plus opinions Judge Kavanaugh has issued during his 12 years on the D.C. Circuit. And now, Senators will have the evidence collected by this additional [FBI] background investigation for their consideration as well.”

Boom! FBI has completed investigating Kavanaugh!

This afternoon, two senior Senate sources told Fox News the FBI has completed its investigation on sexual allegations against Supreme Court nominee U.S. District Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The FBI’s supplemental background report on Kavanaugh concluded, “There is no corroboration for the allegations made by Dr. Ford or Ms. Ramirez”. The report will be sent to the White House before it goes to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The report will be secured in a Capitol Hill basement room for all 100 senators and 9 staffers to come and read.

It is not clear whether any part of the FBI report will be made public, but Thune acknowledged “some of it will probably make its way out into the public and into the mainstream. But most importantly, at least right now, is that all senators who are going to have the responsibility to vote on this nomination have an opportunity to review it, assess it and come to their own conclusions about what’s in there.”

In a letter today to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team said she has not yet heard from the FBI about scheduling an interview with her.

The FBI has not interviewed either Kavanaugh or Ford. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said there is no need to interview either Kavanaugh or Ford, who have each given one media interview and faced questions from the Judiciary Committee, because the FBI “pretty well know what both of them are going to say.”

Sen. John Thune (R-SD), the third-ranking Republican in the Senate, told Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” that “obviously,” the FBI report “will enable the process to move forward and we hope that we’re going to have the votes to get [Kavanaugh] confirmed when it’s all said and done.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) set up a procedural vote for as early as Friday on the Kavanaugh nomination. McConnell has filed a petition for a  cloture vote, which if successful would limit debate on the nomination and start the clock ticking on a final 30-hour waiting period before the Senate votes to confirm the nominee. McConnell said, “It’s time to put this sickening display behind us. The Senate will vote on this nomination this week.

Assuming at least 50 senators agree to end debate, Kavanaugh’s final confirmation vote will come Saturday.

Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 advantage in the Senate and can only afford to lose one vote before Kavanaugh’s nomination would be scuppered. Vice President Mike Pence can cast a tiebreaking vote. Thune said, “It’s an audience of three that we have to win over, at least at the moment,” referring to the three RINO senators Jeff Flake (Arizona), Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska). No Republicans, however, have said they will vote against Kavanaugh.

Four senators blocked Senate from passing bill to defund Planned Parenthood

A June 2018 Gallup Poll found that although 60% of Americans support legalized abortion during the first three months of pregnancy, most oppose it in the later stages. Only 28% and 13% still support abortion once a pregnancy reaches, respectively, the second and third trimester. In the third trimester, the unborn baby is often viable outside the womb with medical support.

Put another way, the Gallup Poll found that 40% of Americans — 4 of every 10 — oppose legalized abortion. The population of the United States in 2018 is 327.123 million. That means 130.85 million Americans oppose legalized abortion.

It is bad enough that 4 of every 10 Americans believe abortion is immoral and should not be legalized. We are compelled by our government to give financial support, by way of our taxes, to the killing of unborn human beings.

Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America, kills some 320,000 unborn babies every year, 900 babies every day. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion — $400 million of which came from taxpayers. As Senator Rand Paul said in his speech on the Senate floor:

“Planned Parenthood received over 400 million dollars of taxpayer money, the government with a wink and a nod tells us that Planned Parenthood doesn’t spend the money on abortions but everybody knows that the taxpayers are really cross-subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills.”

LifeNews reports that on Thursday, August 23, 2018, another effort to defund Planned Parenthood — a pro-life amendment sponsored by Sen. Paul that would revoke taxpayer funding for the abortion mill — failed in the U.S. Senate by a narrow 45-48 vote.

Republicans hold a narrow 51-seat majority in the Senate. Were it not for four senators — two Republicans, and two Democrats who had touted themselves as pro-life — the amendment to defund Planned Parenthood would have passed. By their votes against the amendment, these four senators are forcing 130.85 million Americans to subsidize the killing of the unborn with our hard-earned tax dollars:

  1. Susan Collins (R-Maine)
  2. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)
  3. Joe Donnelly (D-Indiana)
  4. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia)

After the vote Thursday, Planned Parenthood leader Dawn Laguens personally thanked Collins and Murkowski on Twitter:

“Huge thank you to @SenateDems, @lisamurkowski, & @SenatorCollins for standing up & protecting access to health care.”

Last year, the Senate also fell short of enough votes to defund Planned Parenthood, in part, because of Collins and Murkowski. In a letter to her constituents last summer, Murkowski vowed that she is “committed” to forcing taxpayers to fund the abortion chain. Earlier this week in an interview with Politico, Collins proclaims her fealty to the abortion mill, “I have voted for 21 years now for funding for Planned Parenthood. And yet, they continue to question my commitment. And that is extremely aggravating and unfair.”

Neither Murkowski nor Collins has indicated if they will support U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Although both pro-abort anti-life senators voted to confirm Justice Neil Gorsuch, they are facing huge pressure from abortion activists to vote against Kavanaugh.

Planned Parenthood has launched a $30 million political spending campaign to “take over Congress” in the November midterms. The only way the abortion business will be defunded completely is if pro-life voters head to the polls this November and provide the pro-life side a few more votes in the Senate to be able to achieve victory.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

RINO Lisa Murkowski Wants Obama to Succeed

Joe Miller and the spoiler


The Senate election in Alaska is still undetermined because of the slow counting of thousands of write-in ballots, but it looks increasingly likely that spoiler Lisa Murkowski may win.
Murkowski had lost the GOP primary to TEA Party favorite Joe Miller. Addicted to power as a member of the bipartisan political ruling class (her father was Alaska’s former senator and governor), Murkowski stayed in the race for the Senate as a write-in candidate, determined to split Alaska’s conservative and independent votes.
In a sit-down interview with CBS’s Katie Couric — she who disdainly called Middle America the “unwashed” –Murkowski exposed her RINO nature for all to see.
She said the message she’s hearing “loud and clear” from Alaskans is COMPROMISE:

“I will tell you, I am not one of those who wants Obama to fail. If he does well, that means the country’s doing well. We don’t have time as a nation to spend all of what we do blocking. We have got to figure out how we get to a point where we can be sitting around the table and talking about these difficult problems and advancing some solutions.”

In other words, Murkowski wants Obama to succeed — in destroying America. Grrrr…. I will say no more before I get myself banned from my own blog, but here’s a hint:

Corruption of Alaska's Senate Election

The election to the Senate in Alaska is still unsettled because some 80,000 write-in ballots and 31,000 absentee ballots, many of which are military votes, are still to be counted. It’s a neck-to-neck race between Republican nominee Joe Miller and sore loser RINO Lisa Murkowski who had lost the GOP primary but insisted on staying in the race as a spoiler write-in candidate.
Now, there is video evidence, aired by FoxNews’ Huckabee, of a federal government contractor at an Alaskan airbase openly urging his employees to write in Murkowski’s name in order to protect funding for their jobs. The contractor even provided cards for the employees to take with them to the polls.  

What this government contractor did is against the law. Federal law prohibits electioneering.
Furthermore, the Miller campaign discovered that Demonrat VP Joe Biden is a good friend of ostensibly Republican Lisa Murkowski. In an interview with the Associated Press, Murkowski bragged that Biden had called and congratualted her. In other words, she is not a true Republican, even less a Conservative. Murkowski instead is a member of the bi-partisan self-designated Political Ruling Class who care about their own interests but have only disdain for We, the “little” People.

Elitist spoiler Lisa Murkowski


Murkowski is a reminder of Thomas Jefferson’s warning to us down the ages:
“If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves.” -Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Carrington, 1787.
Murkowski has friends in high places in DC and Alaska. Her father, Frank Murkowki, was the state’s Senator for 20 years (1982-2002) and its Governor from 2002 to 2006. Lisa’s tentacles evidently extend into Alaska state government because last Friday, the Division of Elections began validating absentee ballots without notifying the Miller campaign. This directly conflicts with the state’s Election Observers’ Handbook that states the Division of Elections must “notify” the campaign “24 hours in advance of the time of ballot review….”
Not only did the Division of Elections not give a 24-hour advance notice, it never even notified Joe Miller, who learned about this from an Alaska Republican Party official on Friday morning after the validation process had already begun. Given that, there is every reason for Joe Miller to wonder about the integrity of the voting and vote-counting process in Alaska.

Bitch Can't Spell

We’ve finally found the really dumb broad in Alaska — and it’s not Sarah Palin.
RINO Sen. Lisa Murkuwski Murkowski lost Alaska’s GOP primary to conservative Joe Miller. So now she’s determined to be a spoiler and split the Republican vote by running as a “write-in” candidate. (See my previous post, Bitch“)
Alas, her write-in campaign is off to a less than stellar start, notes a source who points to the URL at the bottom of this image from her first ad. (Politico)

Bitch

 

Her name is Lisa Murkowski — daughter of a former Alaska governor and an elitist.
As Alaska’s senator, she scores a dismal conservative rating of 53/100. She was defeated by Joe Miller, a true conservative, in Alaska’s recent GOP primary. Now, she’s coming back as a write-in candidate and, in so doing, will jeopardize Miller’s chance to be elected on November 2 as Alaska’s senator by splitting the GOP vote.
If you’re a Republican or Independent voter in Alaska, is this the sort of person you really want to represent your state in D.C. — someone who’s a sore loser, a spoiler, and who loves power so much she is determined to claw onto it?
And to all Conservatives who don’t live in Alaska, please donate to Joe Miller’s campaign, even if it’s $1 or $5!
~Eowyn & Steve
From an e-mail by conservative Sen. Jim DeMint:
Last night, Senator Lisa Murkowski announced plans seek re-election as a write-in candidate in Alaska. Rather than accepting defeat and working to unite Republicans behind Joe Miller, she has decided to put her own personal interests ahead of everything else.
The establishment loves to lecture conservatives about how we need to support liberal candidates to “expand the tent” and win seats for Republicans. But when these candidates lose their primaries, many leave the party and join the opposition. When conservatives lose their primaries, however, they accept defeat and support the nominee. Murkowski’s betrayal provides more proof that big-tent hypocrites don’t really care about winning a majority for Republicans.
Support Joe Miller for U.S. Senate
Each of the three candidates that we endorsed who lost their primaries gracefully accepted defeat and supported the nominee. Marlin Stutzman endorsed Dan Coats in Indiana, Chuck DeVore endorsed Carly Fiorina in California, and Ovide Lamontagne endorsed Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire and even declined a recount which he could have demanded. But when Arlen Specter faced defeat in the Pennsylvania, he left the party. When Charlie Crist faced defeat in Florida, he did the same. And now Lisa Murkowski is following in their footsteps.
This is why Republicans shouldn’t apologize for supporting principled conservatives in primary elections, even in states like Delaware. Conservative candidates are in it for their country while too many establishment politicians seek office to preserve their status and power.
Murkowski’s move puts this seat at serious risk. Many experts believe she could split the Republican vote and hand victory to the Democrats in November. Murkowski’s decision is also a major reversal from her statement following the primary that she would “return home” later this year.
Principles have never been that important to Murkowski. She supported a massive cap-and-trade energy tax that would permanently destroy millions of jobs in this country. She has waffled on whether she would support repeal of Obama’s health care take over. She is one of the worst abusers of the pay-to-play earmarks system. And she doesn’t support the sanctity of human life. With positions like these, it’s no surprise she’s leaving the party.
Support Joe Miller for U.S. Senate
