It’s day two of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. Democrats are still annoying. The protesters are still unhinged. And everyone on the Left cannot seem to grasp what is reality: Brett Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed. Conservatives will have a 5-4 majority on the Court. You’ve lost. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) performed a great show, wanting to release confidential documents relating to racial profiling during Kavanaugh’s time in the Bush administration. He said he was willing to be expelled for releasing this document, which by the way, was already cleared for release by the committee and the Bush team. As it turned out, Kavanaugh was not in favor of racial profiling after the 9/11 terror attacks.
On top of this nonsense, we have a senior Trump administration official who penned an op-ed in The New York Times, stating their membership in the resistance—and that they’re working to thwart parts of the Trump agenda. The arrogance of this person is quite astonishing. Who the hell elected you to be our savior? We don’t need saving. There is no constitutional crisis. Outside of the cancerous regions of America, the deep blue parts, no one cares about these so-called issues with the administration. They see a biased, elite, and anti-Trump opposition media trying to ruin this man. We don’t care. The economy is booming, paychecks are better, economic outlook is high, and only CNN-land seems to think we’re a banana republic. Whoever this person is, and a lot of people in media and the Trump administration itself seem to know who it is, better be prepared to be unmasked soon.
On a lighter note, football is back! The Atlanta Falcons are playing the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles are the reigning Super Bowl champions. The New York Giants play the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at MetLife, where Odell Beckham, Jr., the recent recipient of a much-deserved contract extension, will be facing Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsay who has been talking some serious trash on everyone this year. The Giants schedule is brutal. Storm thinks the Eagles will be back-to-back champions, a rare feat that only seven teams have accomplished since the Super Bowl was established in 1967. Since 2000, just three teams who have clinched the Lombardi have returned to replay for the championship. The National Football Conference is loaded with talent. There are more than a few teams that can deliver upsets. Injuries are also factors. No doubt, the Eagles will win the NFC East and make the post-season, but the Super Bowl—let’s take it one week at a time.
As for the Giants, we’re still in rebuild mode. We have a new coaching staff, some solid offensive talent, though the offensive line, while better, is still shaky. New coach Pat Shurmur, who has a history with the Eagles in developing QB Donovan McNabb, has cleaned house this season, ridding the Giants of most of the old regime left under former GM Jerry Reese, who was fired after a disastrous 3-13 season for Big Blue. Yes, Reese has two Super Bowl wins on his resume, but the real reason for that was because of Eli Manning. For years, the Giants offensive line has been shoddy, problems that came to a head, among other things last year. Giants probably won’t be playoff contenders, but they will have a much better season: 9-7 is a reasonable projection.
Now, what is not reasonable is Colin Kaepernick’s Nike partnership, which tanked its value by billions. Buy will it hurt them? No, but it doesn’t mean we can’t give them hell for supporting a cop hating, SJW in Kaepernick. Nike’s net approval dropped 35 points, and they had no boosts in their key demographics.

UPDATE: Sorry, I forgot to add this, folks. Here’s the dust-up that happened at city hall when Cory Booker was mayor of Newark back in 2012.
Here’s the backstory:
A behind-the-scenes political maneuver by Newark Mayor Cory Booker to fill a vacant council seat with his choice led to a near-riot in city hall tonight, with dozens of residents rushing the council stage and police responding with pepper-spray.
After weeks of jockeying for Rep. Donald Payne’s successor, Booker made an unprecedented personal appearance to cast the deciding vote with his council allies for Shanique Davis Speight, a longtime ally of power broker Stephen Adubato, over the angry objections of residents.
"In the absence of a quorum, I have an obligation to sit in," Booker said, though he was barely audible over the din.
The packed city council chamber was gearing up for a showdown over the appointment as well known figures including former Mayor Sharpe James, Amiri and Amina Baraka, former Councilwoman Gayle Chaneyfield Jenkins and former Council President Donald Bradley came to back their choices.
Baraka, Councilwoman Mildred Crump, and Councilman Darrin Sharif walked off the dais in protest, and Booker came in cast the decisive vote, as laid out in state statute.
The move was planned by Booker’s chief-of-staff, Modia Butler, to scuttle the appointment of James’ son John Sharpe James, an avowed Booker opponent, in favor of Speight. Butler had the mayor at the ready in case of a tie or if there was no quorum.
