There is a ton of ground to cover in this episode. From the breaking news about Nancy Pelosi facing the kind of treatment Maxine Waters has promoted, to the question if Elizabeth Warren should make a reparation for the benefits she received for claiming to be a Native Indian. How about the revelation that a candidate for Sheriff supports the domestic terrorist group Antifa - and has been hiding this fact from voters. Or the fact that a former Congressman, widely seen as a problem is about as much of a benefit as touting an NRA rating that was stripped away. Oh yes, there is a lot to discuss and ask in this episode.

M V Consulting president and Republican political commentator Michael "Vass" Vasquez was invited onto Southern Tier talk radio - Binghamton Now - on WNBF this morning October 17, 2018. The reason was to address the apparent attack by the host to a tweet by Vasquez, and generally to Republicans in this election cycle. Along the way the latest NRA ratings, the FOIA email and eminent domain scandal in Utica, and the Antifa attack in New York City were addressed. Then the Citizen Action supported candidate for Broome County Sheriff, Matt Ryan, answered Vasquez question if Ryan supports the domestic terrorist Far Left organization Antifa. The answer may surprise some but voters deserve to know the answer.

There are a multitude of things that can be said about Kanye West, but racial slurs should not be among them - unless its said from the Far Left apparently. Going far beyond microaggressions, the Left abandons the pretense of open mindedness as a 1 man revolt from their views incites racism. This is of course not to be outdone by the furthest Left fringe, as Antifa breaks the law in an efforts to intimidate Republicans by vandalism and threats of greater violence to come. We need to share this and our comments.

This episode reviews the question of civility in politics. Not from the perspective from just this week, but going back in time to 2011 and tracking it to today. What has changed? What has devolved? Who has failed to be civil and who has called for it?

This is the 18th Saturday Facebook Live simulcast, where we speak directly to the public, and the topic is how the Brett Kavanaugh confimation vote - and the nomination circus - is affecting the 2018 mid-term election and setting the stage for 2020. Who will be the candidates, what platform will they run on? Why are Democrat leadership in a panic? How will the new precedents affect you? We attempt to address all this with our live audience in this simulcast.

We have a unique theory, that none have yet considered. While the Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court may not have started as a political circus, with the allegations from Dr. Christine Ford and others, it has become one. But this circus of partisan politics has revealed, in our opinion, not just the the platform and theme of the 2020 presidential race, but quite possibly who will be the top of the ticket for the Democrat nomination race. Gov. Andrew Cuomo is so far out of the realm we don't even mention him. But we do go through other likely front-runners; who will make the cut and who won't and why. Plus, the unstated potential impact on the 2018 mid-term elections. Comments are welcomed - what do you think of the theory?

In a direct conversation with the public, we delve into the Senate Judiciary Hearings on the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Ford. What are the inconsistencies in testimony? Do they matter? How is this affecting America? Do you believe her, him, or both? Is your belief based on facts, gender, or political preference?
