Title: What Democrats Have Become; Brett Kavanaugh is a casualty of an anything-goes political resistance.

It is still true: What begins as tragedy can end as farce. So it is with the case of Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting her when she was 15 and he was 17.

As of the most recent available moment in this episode, Ms. Ford’s lawyer said her client would not appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee until there is a “full investigation by law-enforcement officials.” Like the Mueller excavations, that could run to the horizon, unable to find anything but unwilling to stop until it finds something.

Let us posit that the one thing not at issue here is the truth. As a matter of law and fact, Ms. Ford’s accusation can be neither proved nor disproved. This is as obvious now as it must have been when Dianne Feinstein and the other Democrats came into possession of this incident.

Surely someone pointed out that based on what was disclosed, this accusation could not be substantiated. To which the Democrats responded: So what? Its political value is that it cannot be disproved. They saw that six weeks before a crucial midterm election, the unresolvable case of Christine Blasey Ford would sit like a stalled hurricane over the entire Republican Party, drowning its candidates in a force they could not stop.

In #MeToo, which began in the predations of Harvey Weinstein, Democrats and progressives finally have found a weapon against which there seems to be no defense. It can be used to exterminate political enemies. If one unprovable accusation doesn’t suffice, why not produce a second, or third? It’s a limitless standard.

The Democrats’ broader strategy is: Delay the vote past the election; win the Senate by convincing suburban women that Republicans are implacably hostile to them; seize power; and—the point of it all—take down the Trump government.

This is the “resistance.” This is what Democrats have become. Resistance is a word and strategy normally found in a revolutionary context, which is precisely the argument made by the left to justify its actions against this presidency since the evening of Nov. 8, 2016. Anything goes. Whatever it takes. Brett Kavanaugh is not much more than a casualty of war.

Rather than try to argue or win public issues on substance, the Democrats have become a party that seems to think it can win with muscle alone. Environmentalism emerged in the 1970s as a worthwhile idea that attracted the interest and support of both parties. From Al Gore onward, it became a bludgeon to beat up the other party. Now sexual abuse, an issue originating in utmost seriousness, has been quickly captured and fashioned into a political weapon by the Democratic left.

Politics as trench warfare has relieved the Democrats of the burden of thought. Extending the Pelosi Rule—we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it—we now have the Gillibrand Standard.

Commenting this week on Ford v. Kavanaugh, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, another 2020 presidential aspirant, said, “I believe it is disqualifying, given what we know.” In other words, what she believes is based on next to nothing.

Put on defense by these accusations, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley unsurprisingly agreed to a hearing in which Ms. Ford would tell her story and Judge Kavanaugh would speak. Then the senators would vote.

Consider the spectacle: Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, the embodiment of a modern rule of law, is being decided in the Senate by the medieval practice of trial by ordeal, such as surviving immersion in fire or ice. Trial by ordeal was outlawed by the Lateran Council in 1215.

Or worse, the standards of the mob in the Roman Colosseum, turning thumbs up or down on the combatants. Though unlike the Senate Democrats, the Roman mob at least had an open mind.

Incidentally, the standard trope that Donald Trump has degraded our politics? We don’t need to hear that anymore. Or about the moral certitudes of the religious right.

Is there a sadder figure in the modern Democratic Party than Sen. Dianne Feinstein? Elected to the Senate in 1992, Mrs. Feinstein has produced a creditable career. Her above-it-all reputation was never quite deserved, but she has at least performed with dignity.

Now, seeking re-election at 85, she is getting heat from the progressive- dominated Democratic Party in California, the world capital of identity-only politics. By withholding from the committee the accusatory Ford letter that came into her possession nearly two months ago, Sen. Feinstein ensured the nomination’s descent into such a hapless, cynical moment. This will be the most remembered event in Sen. Feinstein’s career.

The Kavanaugh nomination, “given what we know,” has come down to an undiscoverable accusation. The defeat of a Supreme Court nominee on this basis would be a victory for a level of conscious political nullification not seen in the U.S. for a long time. Republicans in the Senate shouldn’t allow it, and voters in November should not affirm it.


Poster Comment:

The words Democrat and Asshole are synonymous! I hate and despise all Democrats, but have nothing but disgust for more than a handful of Republicrats.

The Democrats see it as a no lose game. Heads they delay or scuttle Kavanaugh’s nomination. Tails they create an issue for the fall election which they assume will attract suburban female voters and can be demagogued to death. (1 image)

There's only one simply reason 'The Resistance', rabid Feminism, and the suspension of Due Process/Rule of Law even sees the light of day:

THE LEFTIST-GLOBALIST MEDIA MONOPOLY

It is THEY who have become NARRATOR of THE BIG LIE, then JUDGE & JURY.

It is THEY who've created this insane War On Men, War of Masculine Men, War on Truth, War of Whitey, War on Trump, War on the Founders, War on the US Constitution, and War on Trump.

But who is their REAL target??:

If America is to be "America", they must be destroyed. Without prejudice.

" If America is to be "America", they must be destroyed. Without prejudice. "

I will agree with the above statement.

Mr Trump, I think you have very good intentions, and are doing a lot of good things: Taxes, withdraw from NAFTA, TPP, Iran "deal", attitude about immigration, etc, etc, etc.

However, I think you have screwed up on some things: Keeping so many Obutthead / Clinton holdovers, saying " Hillary is good people & she has suffered enough ". That has shown the left that they can run over you, and will continue, as that shows there really is no rule of law, and that many of them are above the law.

If the rumors of there being stacks of sealed indictments are true. Then it is past time to unseal them, and start rounding up those treasonous bastards, and locking them up !! The time for talking / tweets is over. Now it is time for appropriate action !!!

Stoner, I fully understand your frustration; I share it. ALL 0bama Holdovers SHOULD have been jettisoned ASAP.

But here's a notion that must be considered which might explain why Trump can't do exactly what needs to be done. YET:

For 8 long years, 0bama, Jarrett, Brennan, Comey, Lynch and their Dem-Terrorist-Minions infected and filled EVERY SINGLE personnel-position of power in this vast Gummint with those who share their own America-Hatred. Trump couldn't well replace ALL of those tens of thousands all at one time.

Thus out of those tens of thousands of saboteurs and holdovers still undermining Trump, the number must still be whittled down BEFORE he can take MAJOR ACTION (which is exactly why the mid-terms are so crucial for Dems. AND FOR US).

I believe he's gonna bleed them gradually, holding on to an ace as his own political "October Surprise" before the mid-terms election.

Trump is a bad-azz. Don't underestimate this guy. He's already beaten the GOPe, Dems, and MSM at their own game.

Would be like Christmas morning as a kid, wouldn't it? HEH! (The majority of MSM need to be Frog-Marched as well)

But at the least, we need Trump's October Surprise(s) to be launched in order to heavily damage the Dems in time for the mid-terms. Frog-Marching these domestic terrorists (D) - and yes, that's exactly what they are, aren't they -- will ONLY come about IF the GOP wins or holds serve in these crucial midterms.

Yes it would !! As Liberator said, it would be like Christmas morning for a child. It would be wonderful !!

That said, if it does not occur, it will prove to be just more mental masturbation. And, then on this board, and others, there will be some dragging out / making up excuses for why it was not done !!

Sooner or later, the talk must stop. I do not follow twitter, and I damn sure do not intend to start !! It is time for action !!!

We must restore justice in the USA !!! Now, not in 8 years !!!

" Trump is a bad-azz. Don't underestimate this guy. He's already beaten the GOPe, Dems, and MSM at their own game. "

In some ways yes, and in some ways no.

Still a ton of Obama & Clinton holdovers in place, Hillary has not been " Locked UP ", nor have any deep staters, Fed spending is way up instead of down, the deficit is higher, none of the sealed indictments have been executed, no US troops deployed overseas have been brought home, no wall yet, etc. I admit he has done some good, but the above is seriously lacking. The bureaucrats seem to be running rings around him. Unfortunately, to me, many times it just seems eerily too, too much like scripted theater !! Very unsettling !

I think many people are just so glad that Obutthead is gone, and that Shitlerly did not win, that in their blind zeal, they think he walks on water, and are very quick to make excuses.

Just like a lot of people did with Shrub. They were so glad Clintoon was gone, and that Gore did not take over, they thought Shrub was manna from Heaven, and blindly overlooked his short commings.

I am still glad the witch is not in the oval office ! But, things could be better.

Let's hope this November, the Demonrats suffer their " Little Big Horn " !!!

But don't underestimate the stupidity of American voters, or the cheating skills of the Demonrat party !!

Trump is a bad-azz. Don't underestimate this guy.

A good one that he pulled this past week was to say that a police report must have been filed and that is should be produced to let everyone know when and where the alleged incident took place.

It was an open invitation to attack Trump as stupid for not knowing that Christine Balsey Ford did not know the when or where, or even the year of the alleged event. In service of the great, the magnificent President Donald J. Trump, these nitwits help spread the word near and far, even to the low information crowd, that not even Christine Balsey Ford knew when or where the alleged events allegedly happened.

It is fun to watch him do his thing.

Los Angeles (AFP) - The United States was to begin construction in Texas on Saturday of part of President Donald Trump's border wall designed to curb illegal immigration, which he calls a security threat.

Running along four miles (six kilometers) of the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, the new section will replace existing fencing along the boundary between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, US Customs and Border Protection said in a statement.

"This new wall will be far more durable and far more effective in deterring would-be illegal entrants," Aaron Hull, Chief Patrol Agent in the El Paso sector, said in the statement.

It said the existing fencing will be replaced by an 18-foot (5.4 meter) steel post barrier which allows Border Patrol agents to see through to the other side.

The $22-million project is to be completed in about seven months.

In April, the Border Patrol announced the start of construction of a 20-mile stretch of wall to replace an existing barrier in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.

Much of the border already has fencing or other barriers, but Trump has ordered a "contiguous, and impassable physical barrier," which scientists say would threaten more than 1,000 species of animals.

Congress has so far approved $1.6 billion of $25 billion Trump had sought for his wall.

He initially demanded that Mexico pay for the barrier, which added to tensions between the two neighbors.

Many of the migrants trying to reach the United States are fleeing gang violence and poverty in Central America. https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-border-wall-going-texas-144815835.html

We ALL agree with your fervent wishes. We're all impatient.

However...

I think we've all obviously misunderstood and overestimated the power of authority of an incoming President. (Especially one who was so bitterly hated and opposed by the PTB of BOTH political parties.)

I'll merely reinforce what's overlooked or just not considered:

Yes, Donald Trump was elected President. But he took command of a gummint political infrastructure that was fully booby-trapped with 0bama-holdovers and Globalist-Firsters, openly hostile to Donald Trump. This was unprecedented. They were so arrogant that they launched a coup him (ongoing).

Because Trump was elected President, it does not mean he can locate and fire 40 years worth of THOUSANDS of deeply embedded Globalist-Firsters and Leftists from the bowels of Foggy Bottom and the gazillions of layers of gummint agencies. It will take a long while to peel back this onion. It IS happening, but this was a YUGE ONION.

A great, wise leader must always assess his enemy and KNOW he's got the numbers, the tactical advantage, AND especially loyalty to make his Big Move. That Trump has gained any higher tactical ground to this extent has been more miraculous than you can imagine. Situation: Trump = Battle of the Bulge.

TRUMP IS OBVIOUSLY NOT THERE YET. When he IS, he will bust his promised moves.

Yeah, it was amusing. FAIL! CNN and their shills boggles my mind...

But despite our side winning ALL of the battles (like this), the Left always has lies and repetition AND 24/7 propaganda outlets to fall back on.

We are winning 99-0, but thanks to this Fake MSM Monster, they keep on insisting The Game isn't over.

At what point can or do we sue for defamation, slander, damages, etc? The Left is smearing and lying with 110% impunity!

Trump is great at assessing and projecting the way the dominoes fall. And leading the chase straight to the scene of the crime.

That "5-D Chess" people used to joke about with respect to Trump's ability to stay way ahead of his Tricksters? It's true.

The MSM-Terrorists have been burying any and all of Trump's accomplishments and plans. Precisely to create division in the GOP/Conservative ranks. And will continue to do so. This is yet another case. There are a lot of those proverbial, "If a tree falls in the forest...." happening. Even IF not reported.
