The lead up to installation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in the US, could have been mistaken for the movie series ‘The West Wing”. Machinations, intrigue and skullduggery abounded. It ended in tears, mixed with rage for the left (the Democrats, boy are they sore losers), but rejoicing and euphoria by the right (the Republicans).
The 90-day battle to install Mr Kavanaugh was concluded in the first week of October, with a razor thin margin 50-48. It proved to be the most dramatic fight in a quarter-century, a showdown of epic proportions, that tested the president’s resolve, drove a wedge through the Senate, gripped a nation, ignited protests and demonstrated just how polarized American politics is. And most of all just how fragile democracy is.
If it Sounds too Good to be True- It Probably is.
Things were looking dire for Kavanaugh. When what appeared to be two credible witnesses accused him of serious sexual misconduct. You know the usual, he tried to rape me while drunk (Dr Blasey 51yrs, female) and then he exposed his genitals (Deborah Ramirez 53yrs, female).
The mud was starting to stick, despite Kavanaugh’s fervent denials. But then came a gift from heaven.
Michael Avenatti, a left leaning Californian (of course) lawyer, stepped into the fray. He produced a third witness, Julie Swetnick who alleged that Kavanaugh frequently attended parties where women were gang raped, and that she’d been raped at one of these parties, though not by Kavanaugh.
Well this set the feminist blood boiling, they wanted Kavanaugh’s head on a pike.
Oops, let us digress, for a moment. It should be noted that a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. In the case of Kavanaugh this time honoured- tradition can be set aside, because after all he is a Conservative, and Trump’s nominee. Therefore he must be guilty.
Back into the fray. On further investigation (yes! even the FBI got involved) it was unearthed that Ms Swetnick’s claims didn’t add up. Why would she as a college student repeatedly go to high school parties where young women are raped? And in addition it was discovered that she a penchant for litigation.
Then the spot light turned to Mr Avenatti, wasn’t he the lawyer representing the salacious, porn-star Stormy Daniels, who’s been in pursuit of Trump. The credibility of the third witness sunk the ship for the Democrats, it was all over. Kavanaugh won the day.
A Respected Edifice Falls
The once venerable, The American Civil Liberties Union poured over $1million into its campaign to impugn Kavanaugh’s character. In fact, lately the ACLU has been awash with cash. Well that is since Trump came to power.
In case you’re unaware, ACLU was or is meant to be non-partisan ie neutral when it comes to politics.
Interestingly, when Obama (a Lefty) was president, the ACLU was the defender of individual freedoms par excellence. Everyone from Nazis to Christians were included in its purview. It was also poor.
However, the funds came pouring in from the Left, when Trump won the presidency. Silicon Valley and Hollywood billionaires have put around $450 million into the coffers of the ACLU, from the advent of Trump onwards.
And as its current leader Faiz Shakir (a Democrat operative) said, “People have funded us and I think they expect a return (for their money)” That “return” is to attack Trump, Conservatives and Christians.
The problem that the Left has with Kavanaugh is that he represents Christian values, which means Trumps attempts to drain the swamp” of its nefarious life-forms will no longer be blocked by the Supreme Court.
Women’s right to abort (kill healthy babies), Euthanasia and LGBT rights will all be open to challenge with Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, and he’s there for life.
Oh no. Let’s protest.
