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.

UPDATED (10/1): Lindsey Graham’s “Spontaneous” Outrage

Elections, John McCain, Justice, Neoconservatism, Republicans

How Americans can believe a snake like Lindsey Graham is beyond me. It’s all about situational politics. And people fall for it—forgetting the man’s history of fecklessness. He has no principles. This is the late John McCain’s bosom buddy coming into his own, now that McCain is dead.

The man, Graham, is the foulest of politicians. But cunning. He has read the Republican base before a midterm. That’s all. Graham’s “spontaneous” outrage over the travesty against Brett Kavanaugh was so staged, likely rehearsed. What worries is that Republican voters are so desperate as to embrace the snake.

A healthy reaction to Graham should be this: “OK, you are behaving like a human being, for once. But watch it; you’re on probation. It you, Sen. Graham, agitate for wars against Iran or Syria, open borders (as has been your position hitherto), amnesty and against The Wall—you’re OUT.”

UPDATE 10/1: FACEBOOK Thread

Lindsey Graham is a snake who spent his political career writhing in the pit with another viper, John McCain. Graham has realized that his time is up; that he’d better do something right—represent Americans—aside make mainstream media love him.

And about the fem yelling at Flake the Snake:

UPDATED (10/1): NEW COLUMN: GOP Betrayal: The Cross Examination That Never Was

Constitution, Criminal Injustice, Justice, Law, Natural Law, Republicans

THE NEW COLUMN IS “GOP Betrayal: The Cross Examination That Never Was.” It’s now on WND.com and the Unz Review.

An excerpt:

By the time this column goes to press, Christine Blah-Blah Ford would’ve appeared before the coven once considered the greatest deliberative body in the world: The United States Senate.

At the time of writing, however—on the eve of a hearing conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee to ascertain the veracity of Blasey Ford’s sexual assault claim against Judge Brett Kavanaugh—I hazard that voter distrust in the Republicans will prove justified.

True to type, Republicans will deliver a disaster to their supporters—to those banking on the confirmation of another conservative to the Supreme Court bench.

To question the two adversaries, the psychology professor versus the Supreme Court nominee, the Republicans chose an unknown, unremarkable quantity—a Phoenix-based prosecutor named Rachel Mitchell. Mitchell heads the Special Victims Division of Maricopa County, which consists of “sex-crimes and family-violence bureaus.”

This slipshod selection seemed forensically tailored to Judge Kavanaugh’s alleged crime. It almost suggested Republicans believe such a crime had occurred. Or, worse: These slithering opportunistic reptiles (with apologies to the reptile community) must feel politically compelled to conduct themselves as if Kavanaugh were indeed culpable.

Days before the hearing, this writer had warned that the Republicans did not have the male bits to defend Kavanaugh themselves: “With their choice of sex-crimes prosecutor Mitchell to quiz Brett Kavanaugh and his nemesis, what are Republicans saying? That they think a sex crime occurred?”

A better choice would have been Olivia Benson, leading lady on TV’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” Actress Mariska Hargitay would’ve put on a better show than Mitchell and consulted with sharper legal minds for her script. Hargitay is a liberal, but she’s a pro.

Mitchell, a humdrum, minor state functionary, was unlikely to effect a cross examination for the ages—which is what was required if Brett Kavanaugh was to have a fair shake.

For his part, Kavanaugh is oddly obtuse for one who is said to be such a great jurist. Meek, mild and emotional, he does not seem up to the task of defending himself.

Had the Republicans, also the laggards who dominate the Judiciary Committee, chosen to meaningfully fight for their candidate; they might have opted for one of two dazzling legal scholars. (Please, gentle reader, do not, in the same breath, mention TV judge Andrew Napolitano. Napolitano is a left-libertarian mediocrity who, predictably, has taken the Left’s position on the violence-against-women sub-science.) …

Poor mom.

Blah-Blah’s Year Book:

The New American ‘Justice’

Constitution, Justice, Law, Republicans

“… never in our lifetimes have sitting members of Congress attacked our justice system as they now are. Lawmakers had never mocked the idea of due process, called for the collective punishment of American citizens or declared that the burden of proof is on the accused.“—Tucker Carlson.

“… Elected officials have announced they no longer believe in our Western understanding of justice … We accuse you of a felony. Your job is to show you’re innocent. You’re a sex criminal, prove you’re not. …”

… Senate Republicans declared in effect that all allegations against Brett Kavanaugh must be heard no matter how frivolous or obviously fraudulent they are. We can’t control the Senate Republicans, obviously. They exist in their own world. But we can remind them what is at stake here.

… You wanted secure borders. You wanted an end to ObamaCare and you wanted non-crazy people on the Supreme Court of the United States.

You didn’t get the first two. You’re starting to realize you probably never will, because Republicans in the Senate don’t care enough to protect you.

Don’t feel too bad: They don’t care enough about Brett Kavanaugh or our Constitution to protect them, either.
