I am not kidding you. A man robbing a convenience store—while holding a gun to the clerk’s head—called the police to complain that the clerk would not open the till, unless the thief first purchased something.
Democratic leaders are exactly like that armed bandit. While committing a crime—they not only falsely accuse the victim of a crime—they call the FBI.
As a nation swimming in moral confusion—we can’t see the towering injustice of this entire lurid affair against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. But that is not even the worst of it.
Now imagine if the police had sympathized with the armed intruder and investigated to see if the clerk had behaved properly. Imagine if members of his own family questioned the clerk’s reluctance to give into the robbery. (Jeff Flake.)
Republicans should be outraged in the face of tyranny—they should push for the vote, confirm Kavanaugh, and let the chips fall where they may. They should heed the words of Abraham Lincoln, “Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.”
Now, wouldn’t you love to hear the original recording of the robber to the police? “I am trying to rob this store and the cashier not cooperating.” That is precisely what Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the committee felt like to me.
Julie Swetnick—the other Brett Kavanaugh accuser—was sued for misconduct allegations at a Portland company.
In the suit, Webtrends alleged Swetnick claimed to have graduated from Johns Hopkins University but the company said it subsequently learned the school had no record of her attendance. Webtrends said she also “falsely described her work experience” at a prior employer.
The suit also alleges Swetnick “engaged in unwelcome, sexually offensive conduct” while at Webtrends and “made false and retaliatory allegations that other co-workers had engaged in inappropriate conduct toward her.”
The suit alleges Swetnick “engaged in unwelcome sexual innuendo and inappropriate conduct” directed at two male employees during a business lunch, with Webtrends customers present. Swetnick claimed two other employees had sexually harassed her, according to the suit.
Webtrends’ suit said it determined Swetnick had engaged in misconduct but could not find evidence to support her allegations against her colleagues. Later, the company alleged, Swetnick took medical leave and simultaneously claimed unemployment benefits in the District of Columbia.
Diane Feinstein is as irrational as the now over-referenced robber—holding back false accusations until they would inflict the most pain. Turning a blind eye to the collateral damage to an innocent family. This man watched his children traumatized, and his sparkling reputation besmirched. He got mad. Which leads me to the heart of this blog.
The left—in the stupidest argument ever—says his anger proves he is unfit to be on the Supreme Court. Listen to the Los Angeles Times editorial by David G. Savage: “Determined to clear his name, he did not just argue that Ford, whom he says he had barely known, had mistakenly identified him as the attacker she feared would rape her, or suffocate her by muffling her cries. Rather, he portrayed the accusation as a politically motivated attack by vengeful Democrats, arising from “the frenzy on the left” to “blow me up and take me down.”
Should he be confirmed, however, at a minimum his nationally televised remarks are likely to linger in Americans’ memories, further undercutting for many the notion that the high court’s decisions reflect a fair, impartial reading of the Constitution, history and precedent — and not the nine justices’ political leanings. In particular, Kavanaugh’s judicial temperament has been called into question.” After that, Saturday Night Live had a skit satirizing the Judge’s anger.
An unnamed source put this all in proper perspective: “In watching the testimony of Brett Kavanaugh, I am as angry as Mr. Kavanaugh for the absurd questions asked of him by the assortment of senators. These are the very people we elect to be fair but instead choose to embarrass themselves with questions about drinking beer, parties, his groping – all of which took place 35 years ago. If I were Judge Kavanaugh, I would tell them all where to go and walk out. The Democrats are on this rant because they want to hold the seat open just in case they win in 2020. Disgusting!”
My question to you is…what kind of a Judge, husband and father would Brett be if this did not make him angry? And what kind of people are we if we don’t plug this open sewer hearing in Washington?
