The most preposterous of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers was Julie Swetnick, who is or was a career federal-government employee and a “decorated” one at that.
What does this tell Americans about the quality of the civil servants in their government?
You might counter that the Swetnick case is an isolated incident, but the following is axiomatic; we all know this to be true:
The American government is riddled with set-asides, preferential hiring practices and affirmative action, which compromise an already compromised institution (The State).
Swetnick holds “active clearances” for her work with the US Department of Treasury, US Mint and Internal Revenue Service.
She said she also previously had security clearances with the US Department of State, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection.
An active security clearance means Swetnick has been subjected to a stringent background investigation that deemed her qualified to have access to “classified national security information … so long as the person has a need to know the information,” according to the State Department website.
More shameful is that The Economist (a real news organization) was uncritical about Swetnick’s credentials. If they were minted by the US government, well then, her credentials must be stand for something:
… the latest of [the judge’s accusers] has multiple security clearances and signed an affidavit, under penalty of perjury, that she was gang raped at a party that Mr Kavanaugh attended.

Or diabolical: NOT SURE WHY THE WRITER WON’T state the obvious: “THIS IS WHAT WOMEN OF THE LEFT SOUND LIKE.” Still, good enough for an incomplete deduction
