Consider What The Dems Just Pulled On Kavanaugh — And The Country

Constitution, Criminal Injustice, Democrats, Justice, Law, Left-Liberalism

We’ve moved on so quickly from the ordeal of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

But consider: The man had lived a good life. Yet his reputation is in tatters, forever tainted, following his confirmation hearings in September of this year.

Democrats had set up a speedy Kangaroo Court for Brett Kavanaugh. It was a petty, yet lethal, rumor mill, culminating in a humiliating, ugly, character-destroying farce of a hearing, played out nationally and internationally.

Willfully ignored by the presiding Democrats were all the “recognized standards of justice” or “legal and ethical obligations”: The right to effective legal representation, the right to confront an accuser and her witnesses; the right to challenge the evidence, and the presumption of innocence.

Believing they were on the side of the angels and would be embraced as such, Democrats claimed Kavanaugh, whom they accused of the crime of sexual assault, was owed no due process of law.

Hey, a confirmation hearing is just a job interview. So what if it turned into a search-and-destroy mission against an innocent man?! No hard feelings, old sport.

Truly despotic.

UPDATES (10/16/018): Beware: Dem Witches Are Coming. The Women’s Takeover Of Society Is A Bitch

Democrats, Donald Trump, Elections, Feminism, Left-Liberalism

“The #MeToo movement … has become the defining cultural phenomenon of the Trump era,” enthuses the Economist.

On January 21st 2017, one day after his inauguration, millions of people across America (and the world) took to the streets for the Women’s March. Many of those who marched said that watching the first major-party female presidential candidate lose was painful; watching her lose to a man who has referred to several women as “dogs” and “piece[s] of ass” was infuriating.

During the previous election cycle, 920 women contacted EMILY’s List, a political action committee devoted to electing pro-choice Democratic women, about running for office. Since Mr Trump’s election, more than 42,000 have. Half the Democrats’ first-time House candidates this year are women, up from 27% in 2016 (and far higher than the Republican share of less than 20%). From a field that includes Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar, the Democratic presidential ticket in 2020 will probably include at least one female candidate.

And as quickly as women are flocking to the Democrats, many appear to be fleeing Republicans. The 2016 gender gap of 24 points (women supported Hillary Clinton by 13; men went for Mr Trump by 11) was already the largest on record. According to an average of three recent polls compiled by National Public Radio, the same gap exists for this year’s mid-terms, but with a stronger leftward lean. Women favour Democrats by 21; men favour Republicans by 3.

Since women vote at greater rates than men, that swing should worry Republicans.

The women’s takeover of society is a bitch. It’s bad.

A Deal Breaker Or Just An Ice-Breaker? Brett Kavanaugh Threw Ice In … 1985

Comedy & Humor, Culture, Democrats, The Courts

As if drinking beer in college were not bad enough, Brett Kavanaugh had taken student life to a whole new level: ice tossing at a bar.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college. A report released Tuesday by police in New Haven, Connecticut, says Kavanaugh was questioned after the 1985 incident, but wasn’t arrested.

(CBS News, Your Trusted Fake-News Outlet.)

Maybe Kavanaugh was just a different kind of ice-breaker?

UPDATED (9/17/018): Sen. Flake Steps Into McCain’s Shoes As Republican Saboteur, Forever Looking Out For … Democrats

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona has stepped into the role of John McCain as Republican scold and saboteur, forever looking out for the interests of … the Democrats, not to mention his own legacy as swamp creature.

And now, the flake from Arizona is helping to sabotage the nomination to the Supreme Court of Brett Kavanaugh. After all, when it comes to white males, there is no statute of limitation on their crimes and evil. They must be stopped. No evidence needed. Due process be damned.

By now you know that one,

Christine Blasey Ford provided a detailed and graphic account published by the Washington Post earlier Sunday recalling the sexual assault she says occurred when both she and Kavanaugh were in high school. …

… Flake … told Politico this: “If they push forward without any attempt with hearing what she’s had to say, I’m not comfortable voting yes…We need to hear from her. And I don’t think I’m alone in this.”
In response, Kavanaugh “categorically and unequivocally” denied the allegation.

MORE at Mediate.

AND, if you miss John McCain, fear not. Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) & Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) will pick up the slack. Flake, aforementioned, too. Recall how they & the late Johnny defeated legislation to scrap the Affordable Care Act?

UPDATE (9/17/018):

It’s not available yet with a Google search, naturally, but meek Mitch McConnell has just come out in a full-throated repudiation of the attack on #Kavanaugh. Good. Now LET’S HAVE A CONFIRMATION VOTE.

It makes a BIG difference how long ago accusations of rape occurred, because of EVIDENCE. At least in a western court of law, you still need evidence to mount a case against a man presumed innocent until proven guilty.
