This key Senator just let the world know how she’s voting on Kavanaugh

The Senate vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation is imminent.

It’s going to come down to the wire.

And one senator – who was previously on the fence – just made an announcement that changes everything.

Susan Collins (R-ME) is a self-described “moderate.”

Many have speculated that she could vote “NO” on Kavanaugh because of her ardent support for Planned Parenthood and abortion.

But she stepped up to the mic and announced she intends to vote in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Fox News reports:

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, on Friday said she intends to vote in favor of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation — a crucial vote that likely secures Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the nation’s highest court.

“I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh,” she said on the Senate floor.

She said the confirmation had resembled a “caricature of a gutter-level political campaign” and criticized Democrats for announcing their opposition to Kavanaugh before his name was even announced. She also criticized outside groups for distorting Kavanaugh’s record and “over-the-top rhetoric.”

As she began her speech, she was interrupted by protesters urging her to vote “no.” The Senate was flooded by protesters in the days leading up to the vote, with activists hounding Republicans and urging them to vote against Kavanaugh’s confirmation, citing decades-old sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

The vote is scheduled to happen on Saturday evening.

But with several senators still yet to proclaim their final intentions including Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), anything could happen.

Just consider last week’s vote out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Early morning reports said never-Trumper Jeff Flake was a “yes” vote.

But later changed his tune after being confronted in an elevator by leftwing activists.

He ultimately voted Kavanaugh out of committee after caving to the Democrats’ demands for yet another FBI investigation.

George Soros-backed protesters have all but blockaded senate offices.

Will their intimidation tactics flip another senator to their side?

    I TOTALLY Agree,But I want to say that truly GOD used Susan Collins yesterday with her speech on the floor to show Judge K . case .It took courage.And to me she is a HERO.She has had death threats.It is horrible.I was raped also but this was not from God I wish I could Thank Her.

  2. I firmly believe that our Lord and Savior had a hand in getting Brett Kavanaugh confirmed. The DIMMS played every dirty trick and none worked. They will have to answer for this at the Golden Gates when it’s time. Meantime, we are patiently awaiting for his swearing in and are so happy and thankful.

  3. Francisco Machado says:

    The Democrat talking point on Roe v. Wade is Kavanaugh will vote to remove it. He has said he does not expect to do that. It still must be considered that it will depend upon a case or cases brought against it and how they are argued. It is Constitutionally a very questionable law. Removing it, however, despite what the Democrats say, doesn’t make anything at all illegal, it just leaves the lawmaking to state legislatures which conforms to the Tenth Amendment – or to the people, who elect their representatives to Congress whose legislation can amend the Constitution to create a national law regarding it, also conforming to the Tenth Amendment.

  4. I dislike saying this but I hope Ms. Collins isn’t waiting for a big pat on the back for doing the right thing. It seems to me, this little group of three, are always trying to leverage or take advantage of the situation in some way. This not what team play is about.

    i guarantee if they don’t vote in favor of Judge Kavanaugh they will not be getting a positive vote when up for re election. the democrats who have no standards and values in life do not belong in office of anykinDd in serving our nation and government.

    Senator Collins is a good senator, Murkowski, Heitkamp and Flake have their mind made up, don’t bother me with the facts,

    The Democrats are disgusting with their tactics

  8. n wilson oliver says:

    Is the palace coup working or is it failing? The RINO’s on the fence have a few more hours to decide–and that goes for the West Virginia senator as well. Choose wrong and it’s a long winter.

    Two factors here appear of far less concern to these “statesmen and stateswomen” as they think they portray themselves, rather than the political whores most are, toeing the party line and all that implies.

    The first factor concerns the accusation itself–I repeat myself, but had Finestone truly believed this was a valid accusation, SHE would have presented it AT THE BEGINNING where the time would have been ample to INVESTIGATE (as they now so fervently claim is needed?!)–She knew this was “headline-grabbing” yellow press material at best–(even with the best coaching for the maximum salaciousness such as fearing for her life–give me a break–poor B-rated scripting).

    However the KEY point is HOW the LEFT has conducted itself–Debate?! Hell no, yelling, mob demonstrations, threats–I ask the fence sitters “Is this the America YOU want? Or, as Senator Collins states, this “gutter-level politics” is UNACCEPTABLE! Let those who choose this path wallow in self-dysfunctionality and delusion–this is NOT the way to conduct government in a REPUBLIC!!

    I as well I will never vote DEMOCRAT AGAIN as long as I live they are very selfish and win at all cost even if there is no proof of wrong doing the one voted against him will be remembered at the poles thats a promise

    • M says:

      Robert wyatt, #WalkAway to the Republican party, we want and need you!

    • Sandra Thompson says:

      Unfortunately, the Democrats have abandoned the Constitution. They have become feral, and not to be trusted. I find it troublesome that when these individuals have to represent the constituents of their home states, the people will know that they cannot trust these individuals, individuals for whom they voted. We are in shaky times. May God have mercy on us.

      • M says:

        Sandra Thompson , You would think their constituents would get so sick of the Dems unethical un-American, even criminal, activities they would not vote for them again. My Mom used to say, there are “die-hard” Dems who would vote only for Dems even if “old Billy hell” (whoever he was) was running! Unfortunately, she was correct!

  10. Fr Tom Martin says:

    I have a problem with Democrats or Republican who support a party line when they think or know it is not right. I am a staunch Republican but I do not agree with all the Republican leaders say. I am a staunch Catholic but I do not agree with a lot of things the hierarchy says and does

  11. Fr Tom Martin says:

    You cannot tell me there is no way they cannot keep these protesters out of government meetings when they are disrupting and keeping the officials from carrying out their duty

  12. Mike says:

    Collins enjoy the balance of your time in the senate. You won’t be returning!

    • Joanna says:

      You Tom are so wrong!!! Susan Collins will be returning to the senate!! Collins has what seems to be lacking from the rest!!! COMMON SENSE!! you seem to lacking the same loss!!!! GROW UP!!!!!

    • Mike, You are so wrong! Senator Collins, by her vote for Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, she has shown tremendous fortitude and strength in doing what is right for not only her home state of Maine but of the whole COUNTRY (U.S.A.). I again salute her for her bravery.

    • Maxine R. Phillips says:

      Don’t be so sure if that! What this woman had to say about what the Democrats are doing is spot on. She told it just like it is and people liked what she had to say. So we may keep her!

  13. Thank you Senator Collins. You are truly a great representative of not only your state of Main but of the United States of America in the matter of confirming judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. I salute you!

    I was amazed at Senator Collins decision! Before she spoke, I felt sure she would not be able to bring herself to vote yes in the final vote Saturday evening, knowing she is a moderate deeply immersed in feminism. I hope everyone realizes all the time and research she delved into to pull all those facts and stats together for her speech. I am sure she did all that work to find her way to vote to confirm, or not She was so meticulous and it was obvious it was a very hard decision for her to make but, thank God she decided she must vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh! There have been times in years gone by I could have twisted Senator Collins’ head off and handed it to her based on some of the decisions she has made but, this time, she came through for all of us. Thank you, Susan!

  15. Dianna says:

    Thank you Susan Collins! you listened to evidence & not nonsense Democrats & left have been trying to destroy Judge Kavanaugh & his family with! God bless America!

  16. Steff says:

    Senator Collins delivered a very thoughtful and contemplated speech testifying why she was voting for Judge Kavanaugh. I am very impressed with her deliberation and reasons for her vote. MAGA!!!

  17. BajaRon says:

    Ok. I am for the Kavanaugh appointment. But this is not the reason I would like to praise Senator Collins.

    I give Collins kudos because she has had the fortitude to rationally consider the ‘evidence’, or frankly the lack thereof, and come to a reasonable, logical and thoughtful conclusion. Kavanaugh should be should be afforded the same right of being ‘presumed innocent’ until enough plausible, verifiable evidence is brought forward to give valid reason to decide otherwise. When considering our basic human rights, this has to be right at the top of the list.

    If any, and (likely in the case of conservative appointments) every person can be destroyed with nothing more than Mrs. Ford presented. Then there is no reason to ever put forward a conservative for confirmation. It would simply be much to easy to destroy the character of anyone who might attempt it.

    Thank you Senator Collins for doing what every Senator has a sworn obligation to do. Consider the verifiable facts and apply them to the situation regardless of the pressure applied by those who simply live to promote their agenda. Regardless of the means.

    Good for Susan Collins. In my opinion, aggrieved females that conveniently show up just in time to throw a monkey wrench into a Supreme Court confirmation decades after the alleged incidents are automatically suspect. If they are sincere, they had/have whatever legal remedies are available to them. Personally, I ‘m not concerned about what ever happened 36 years ago. The foundation underlying Brett Kavanaugh’s qualifications to sit on our Supreme Court has been built on his many years of exemplary service in previous judicial posts.

    Collins speech was Churchillian!
