Kavanaugh Must Be Confirmed

I don’t think I’ve ever been made so angry by political events. At least in the case of Moore they had the yearbook: thin, but at least it was a contemporary document which verified that Moore had some contact with his accuser. All we’ve got in Kavanaugh’s case is a letter which doesn’t even state clearly when and where it happened. And, now, word is his accuser is pushing back against the idea of testifying before the Senate and her lawyer is claiming the accuser has no burden of proof. I’d say this was Soviet-style slandering, but the Soviets weren’t this dishonorable.

Kavanaugh completely denies any such event took place – not just with the accuser, but at all. The other person claimed to be there also denies it happened. There is no way to actually investigate the matter because we don’t know when and where it happened – which is just terribly convenient for the accuser because if she gave a specific date, then Kavanaugh might be able to prove he was elsewhere at the time. Rather astonishing that such a searing event in her life doesn’t come with the date within a week of the event and a place at least within a few blocks of where it might have happened.

Meanwhile, some – but not all – of the Never Trumpers are all “this is serious and we have to listen”. As if that is what the Democrats want. They don’t want that: they want Kavanaugh to be axed. And, then, if they win the Senate, they’ll just keep that seat vacant for two years hoping that a Democrat wins in 2020. This is all about the exercise of raw, political power. The Democrats want to win – and this is their last, desperate gambit to do that. If we let them win, then we’re cooked. If mere accusation is enough to kill Kavanaugh’s nomination, then no one is safe…and very many people will refuse to even get involved in politics for fear that someone will just make something up about them.

The only way we win this is to put Kavanaugh on the Court – no other outcome works. If we fail, we’re doomed. They’ll just keep doing this and keep doing this and keep doing this until the only “dissenting” voices in politics are those who will never actually challenge the left. This is the hill we must fight on: there is no tomorrow. We either win and get Kavanaugh on the Court, or our political future is finished.

    The Democrats are safe — safe from recriminations because they know Republicans would never stoop this low.

    We either win and get Kavanaugh on the Court, or our political future is finished.

    Well put.

    FIGHT !!!

    Dem. Rep. Ruben Gallego of AZ yesterday called all republicans “cowards” and that he would like to “kick the shit out of them”

    I have left a message for him at his office and have messenged him on Facebook accepting his challenge. I have yet to hear back and will let you know when I do. I will not stop until Gallego responds to me or apologizes. They want the thunder? We will bring it.

    Let’s shove all their shit right down their throats people …… who’s with me??

    I hope Trump declassifies everything related to this issue:

    Judicial Watch announced that, in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the Justice Department admitted in a court filing last night that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held no hearings on the FISA spy warrant applications targeting Carter Page (a former Trump campaign part-time advisor who was the subject of four controversial FISA warrants).

    In the filing the Justice Department finally revealed that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court held no hearings on the Page FISA spy warrants which were first issued in 2016 and subsequently renewed three times:

    Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton: “It is disturbing that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court rubber-stamped the Carter Page spy warrants and held not one hearing on these extraordinary requests to spy on the Trump team. Perhaps the court can now hold hearings on how justice was corrupted by material omissions that Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the DNC, a conflicted Bruce Ohr, a compromised Christopher Steele, and anti-Trumper Peter Strzok were all behind the ‘intelligence’ used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team.”

    Using oppo research docs to rubber stamp the surveillance of a US citizen and political opponent. Does it get any more fascist than that?

      Does it get any more fascist than that?

      Yeah, actually, it does. Paige and Strzok then leaked the contents of the dossier to the media and then used the media accounts to bolster the validity of the fake dossier by saying, “see Judge, even the media knows there’s something going on here.” YCMTSU!!

    I wonder if Di Fi feels any responsibility …… or is taking down Trump worth a few casualties?

    Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford and her family are forced into hiding after receiving DEATH THREATS over her claims the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her as a teenager

      No one should condone death threats, but it is a bit of karma to see it happening to a Liberal for a change. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least to find out that the death threats are actually coming from other Liberals, knowing that they will be blamed on Conservatives. As Rush pointed out the other day, Conservatives, by and large, don’t engage in the smarmy, over-the-top behavior that has become so prevalent on the Left.

        If she’s got such threats, lets see her report to the police on it. I’m doubting everything about this.

    How I’d love to have every recent politician and judge be scrutinized even 1/3 as much as Kavanaugh has over these past several weeks, and to be held to the same standard they’re demanding of him. Let any allegation of misconduct, no matter how long ago or how unsubstantiated, deter their ability to hold office until such allegations are thoroughly investigated and proven without merit. I doubt many of them would still be in their position of authority. For that matter, we would probably jail 10 – 20% of current & recent past politicians and judges with the KNOWN corruption, abuse of power or purposeful evasion / obstruction / breaking the law. Dose of double standard anyone? I sure hope either, Sessions makes a fairly large splash with investigations & charges after the elections, regardless if the Republicans hold the majority, -or- Trump replaces him with someone who will !!

      How many of us could really survive an in-depth examination of our lives?

        I had a top secret SCI clearance for 21 years, went through a 9 month FBI background check in the beginning and an update check every 5 years. I found out they interviewed people I had forgotten I even knew, including former neighbors from when I was a kid. If the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh were true, it’s highly likely the FBI would have uncovered it.

      • M. Noonan September 19, 2018 / 11:47 pm

        Almost certainly. I believe that Kavanaugh didn’t do any such thing – I don’t existentially know this, of course, but I believe it. There would be a pattern of behavior if he were an abuser.

    Ms. Ford is propagating a lie, and is seeking help from the FBI and others to help her make her fabricated story seem more “believable.”

    The Democrats should think twice about torpedoing Kavanaugh’s nominations, short of a MAJOR SUBSTANTIAITED issue coming to light. They are reaping the consequences / rewards of utilizing the nuclear option back when they held the majority. I’m sure many of them would love to go back and undo that decision. I’ll make a prediction that forcing the dismissal of Kavanaugh under the current conditions will have greater ramifications than what came from exploiting the nuclear option. The Democrats are walking straight into a mine field with no map. Beware what you wish for.
