Below is just a sample of what Jim presented to listeners on this edition of our weekly round-up and comment program.
--13 left-wing groups have scolded Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer for failing the progressive base by not blocking Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.
--New Jersey Democrat Senator Cory Booker made a scene at the Kavanaugh hearing, daring Republicans to expel him from the Senate, vowing to knowingly break Senate rules by releasing confidential committee documents and accuse Kavanaugh of having something to hide. As it turns out, the documents that Booker released had already been cleared for publication at 4am that morning. So Booker wasn't breaking any rules, he was merely 'grandstanding'.
--A new document has been released indicating that Brett Kavanaugh is possibly open to overturning Roe v. Wade.
--During questioning, Kavanaugh told the Senate that the government cannot force Christian groups to pay for abortions.
