(1) The President's latest Ambassadorial nominee is John Rakolta Jr, to the UAE. Quite an important post at this time. I think John and Terry Rakolta will fit in well there. She led a boycott of TV sitcom "Married... with children" in 1989 for "obscenity."
(2) All four of Rakolta's grandparents were from Romania. His father established a construction business in Detroit at around the same time Fred Trump joined his mother's business in NYC. John Rakolta Jr & DJT joined their family firm around the same time, 1970.
(3) Rakolta has been a mega donor and fundraising chairman for several Michigan statewide and national campaigns incl GWB in 2004, Mitt Romney in 2008 & 2012. In 2016 started with Rubio then gladly backed Trump in July that year. Contributed funds to the Trump transition.
(4) Rakolta is a Mormon, *shocked face*, his wife Terry's sister is Ronna Romney, the mother of Ronna McDaniel, current RNC Chairman. Ronna Romney (Sr) is divorced from Scott Romney, the brother of Mitt. So, Terry Rakolta is Ronna McDaniel's aunt.
(5) Hopefully he'll become Ambassador Rakolta in less than, say, the 6 months and counting that we've been waiting for Ambassador @RichardGrenell. IMO Rakolta will be an outstanding representative for America in the UAE. Like Grenell in Germany.
(6) The UAE is one the inner-circle of allies that are of great importance to the USA at this time. They are an essential part of the historic geo-political-economic-strategic changes being led by that region, for that region, with strong US support.
(7) Not only is the UAE critical to US peace-through-strength in the region, it is an economic powerhouse, particularly in urban development and construction deals, where Rakolta's proven record will be respected. He's achieved a lot more in his life than just being a CEO.
(8) Every President nominates campaign donors to senior posts. You should see some of the crooked, inept or mediocre people nominated by Bill Clinton & Obama. I pay attention to the people Trump nominates at the senior level. They're incredibly skilled and share #AmericanValues.
(9) A key lesson I've already taken in the Trump era: #GOPUnityWinsElections. I don't indulge in hating on the "GOPe" (except for McCain, but he's a Dem anyway so doesn't count). I admire people like John Rakolta Jr who have been working in the GOP behind the scenes for years.
(10) This President puts an enormous amount of time into his relationships with anyone and everyone in the GOP who is willing to make a deal with him, on our behalf. He's not naive, he knows what he's up against, but he never, ever gives up. Nor should we.
(11) I look forward to the severe case of Senatorial-confirmation constipation being relieved soon. I don't want to know how, I just want it done! Yesterday!

(1) Live tweeting the swearing in of Justice Kavanaugh, October 6, 2018.

The White House and then the Supreme Court will host the two ceremonies necessary for the Justice to take his seat on Monday.

#ThankYouSenators #GodBlessAmerica #Originalism 🇺🇸👨‍⚖️
(2) Brett M. Kavanaugh will soon be the 102nd Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the USA. He has earned this highest honor throughout his life, inspired by his trailblazing mother, Judge Martha Kavanaugh.

His title for these few hours is Associate Justice Designate.
(3) This statement from the Supreme Court explains the two ceremonies:

(1) #ConfirmKavanaugh updates thread #3 starting from 10/4/18.

A directory of my 10 Kavanaugh threads, and counting. (I know, I surprise myself sometimes.)

#JudgeKavanaugh will soon be #JusticeKavanaugh and the American Republic will be preserved. 🦅
(2) This WaPo reporter is incorrect about the vote being "scheduled for" Saturday. The earliest time a vote COULD be held is Saturday pm. There's no reason not to hold it on Sun/Mon IF we need Daines. I think we won't. Read my 5 tweets about him here:
(3) An excellent short explainer about the fact that Mitch has the votes:

(1) A directory of my Kavanaugh threads since July 9, 2018.

I never planned more than a couple of threads about him this year but, I shoulda known the Dems would try to destroy whoever was the nominee this time.

Well, he fought back. #AmericanOfTheYear #JusticeKavanaugh 🇺🇸
(2) Like Democrats, I'd already decided how I felt about him before his nomination was announced. I live-tweeted the announcement, which was a great event in itself.

(3) I followed Kavanaugh's progress over the summer and on September 22nd, I finally wrote a thread about the preparations for the all-important hearing on September 27th. It covers the hearing before the next thread started the day after.

(1) #PhotoThread for the #ConfirmKavanaugh process starting 10/3/18.
(2) Mitch laughing to himself about how absurd it is that he has to push his way through the crowd of reporters on 9/25/18.
(3) Sen Grassley is 85 years old. (Democrats have senators around that age, too.)

Today he had to hold onto a Capitol Police officer to reduce the risk of a reporter knocking him over. This has to stop. Senators must return to being able to walk around freely at work.

(2) First Lady Melania Trump is a natural in this important role.

She's one of those women whose face lights up whenever she is around children. God Bless our great First Lady.

(3) FLOTUS left Joint Base Andrews in her trademark high heels and arrived in Ghana wearing practical flats. She still looks sensational, whatever she happens to wear!

(1) Live tweeting the Senate tonight. @SenateMajLdr has to file cloture by a deadline tonight in order to hold the #ConfirmKavanaugh vote Saturday.

Watch the livestream and videos here:

(2) Cloture in the Senate is a procedural step that you can learn more about at the link below. The senate.gov website is the best resource for learning about Senate procedure and a lot more. Same for house.gov.

(3) Watching live Senate floor proceedings is boring as hell, as they pass bills for naming Post Offices, & so on. But every now & then, they confirm a SCOTUS judge. And this time, they will affirm our great #BillOfRights #DueProcess & the hard-won #RuleOfLaw. Seriously. 🇺🇸🦅
