The victory of Brett Kavanaugh faded quickly in my spirit. It was something President Trump asked the crowd in Kansas. “If they act this way trying to get power what do you think they will be like if they get the power?”
Then he said, “you don’t hand matches to an arsonist.”
Diane Feinstein will slander an innocent man—hold back that slander till it has the most sadistic impact on a godly family—just to win an election. If she does that now, what would she do with a Senate majority?
The left believes men should be guilty until proven guilty. They want carte blanche to investigate until the lies suffocate the truth.
And what if Kavanaugh had quit? What if that towering miscarriage of justice had carried the day? The war on men would have reached critical mass.
As it stands, all we have won is a battle. The war goes on. We will still see this ideology canonized in the courts if the left gains control.
Oh, they won’t go after every man…just your man. They won’t investigate Bill Clinton for rape or Keith Ellison for beating a woman senseless. They only want to stop men who oppose their agenda. What do you think they’d do to your Christian, conservative son, brother, husband, father, if they get in the way?
What about the street thugs of the left? With a Democratic majority they will be emboldened to expand and deepen their disruption and violence. The streets can become their reign of terror, destroying property and reputations. They will operate with impunity shielded by a Congress sympathetic to their cause.
Whatever restraint Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and all the social media platforms are showing now will go away. Instead of shadow banning there will just be banning.
Hollywood, and all the media voices of the left would churn out complete propaganda, drowning out all opposing views. Look at this tweet:
The writer of this vile tweet is a writer on the Stephen Colbert show, and has nearly 40,000 followers on Twitter. As the Senate confirmation vote was gearing up, she wanted everyone to know that “whatever happens” she is “just” glad she ruined a man’s life. Never mind if he was innocent, never mind any of the facts or corroborations or shifting stories of his accuser. The important thing to her was ruining his life. That was what mattered.
We have entered a moment unlike any in history. They only time it reminds me of is in Luke 4: 13 “When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.”
The left is a bloodied beast regrouping. Their vile behavior against Kavanaugh was just a dress rehearsal. Starting today, they will unleash deceit, intimidation and yes, violence. Dark money will fuel their dirty commercials. A tsunami of leftist sewage is about to crash into the nation.
Mario, I don’t believe you, this can’t happen. Yeah and did you ever think something like these depraved confirmation hearings could happen?
The stakes for November are beyond calculation. I have never seen, nor will I ever see a closer tie between my faith and my vote. They have become virtually inseparable. One is now an extension of the other. Every believer must storm heaven in prayer! Every believer must go and vote. If your pastor is not rallying you to pray and vote why are you still listening to them?
You don’t hand matches to an arsonist. However, if you think you are spiritual by not voting you need to realize this: while you aren’t handing an arsonist matches, you are leaving them out on the table.
“Republican enthusiasm surges amid Supreme Court battle!” That’s what Katie Glueck and Adam Wollner of the Maclatchy Report said in their article of the same name.
“Conversations with pollsters, strategists and party officials reveal that Republican voters are circling the wagons around Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Supreme Court nominee who has been accused of sexual assault, allegations he strongly denies. And now, there are concrete signs that the drama over his confirmation, complete with emotional Senate hearings and an FBI supplemental investigation, is helping Republicans close an enthusiasm gap with Democrats, which has been one of the GOP’s biggest challenges of the last two years.
‘It’s the difference between victory and defeat in a close race,’ said veteran GOP pollster Whit Ayres, who said he’s seeing a bump in Republican enthusiasm. ‘They’re pretty upset about how Kavanaugh has been treated.’”
Feinstein and all the rest crossed the one line you don’t cross with Americans: their sense of fairness. Both liberal and conservative Americans are disgusted by the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh. And there are signs that the public is going to punish the Democratic Party for this circus of horrors.
No longer can you blame Trump…you did this to yourselves. Today for example, Chuck Schumer is screaming that there is only one copy of the FBI report on Kavanaugh for Senators to read. That is a procedure Obama created with the Justice Department in 2009. Again, they did it to themselves.
The media, universities, and the Democratic Party’s credibility is imploding. The press is crying foul. They claim the president’s attacks erode democracy. The truth is, they have been caught red-handed omitting facts and giving credence to people who have lied. They have been tagged for eroding democracy, once again they did it to themselves.
Tragically, they are not only missing the point, they are basking in their self-inflicted wounds.
Secular progressives from all of these institutions have deranged themselves. Old Democratic Party leftists will not even consider self-examination. The damage is now clear. Unable to take anymore, many mainstream liberals are quietly excusing themselves …quietly because of the left’s slander-terror campaign against any liberal who openly disagrees.
The exasperating—over-the-top—leftist behavior has given the nation combat fatigue. Not to mention they look and sound just plain loony. The new radical left has trapped Democrats trapped in a twilight zone. They are too big to be an insane asylum and too small to be a national movement. They are merely an elite, out of touch group of bullies who—for the moment at least—hold the microphone. It appears however that they will have to face the facts of life.
It’s a fact of life: the public will hold you accountable when you don’t hold yourself accountable.
It’s a fact of life: silencing people does not convert them.
The Trump excuse has worn thin and the left must pay the piper. They told the lies. They colluded to elect Hillary Clinton. They own the narrative that is spewing venom. They are the ones who look unhinged.
Here’s an all points left wing loon bulletin:
The University of Michigan has banned whiteboards in the dorms to cut down on hurtful words.
From the Devolving, Democratic Congress: Maxine Waters calls the entire Trump Cabinet “scumbags.”
From the fading CNN Bunker: A father asks Chris Cuomo, “what if my twelve-year-old daughter doesn’t want to see male genitalia in the girl’s locker room?” His answer, “her overprotective father should teach her tolerance.”
A terror group in the Bay Area who call themselves By Any Means Necessary say that they break windows, set buildings on fire and beat people to silence speakers on campus. Oh, and not on just any campus but Sproul Plaza at Cal Berkeley: the birthplace of the free speech movement. They said, “Our violence is an act of self-defense.”
When you scream that the enemy is white male Christians—when you use violence to stop free speech—when you say gender is not scientific—you not only sound crazy, but you show the public that the real racism, sexism, and hate is coming from.
You are driving folks to conservatism. You are the early committee to reelect Trump. You are alienating America. A part of me doesn’t want to tell you this. Napoleon said, “never interfere with your enemy when he is making a mistake.”
Today I address you, not as Republican or Democrat, but as a human being. You need—for the sake of your sanity—to admit what they are doing to Judge Brett Kavanaugh. You need to do this to save what’s left of America.
Desperate wounded animals are hiding behind words like women’s rights and racial equality. They care nothing about these things…it is all about power. They will destroy anyone and anything to stay in power.
How else can you explain the deception, the cruelty, and the madness?
Diane Feinstein is fighting for reelection. She has lost support in California because she is not left-wing enough. She made the cold-blooded choice to destroy a man with lies, so she can stay in office. What else explains her predatory behavior?
She waits until the last minute to produce a shabby witness to an uncorroborated high school event. She screams for time to investigate. She is the one who wasted it!
She is far from the only villain in this psycho-drama. We see a parade of politicians at the end of their rope. We see the news media shedding every shred of honesty to feed the frenzy. We see politicians who have actually sexually assaulted women crucifying a man who never did.
And why do you need to see this? For two mountainous reasons:
1. This is a war on you. It is a war on your sons, husbands, brothers and fathers. Today it is Kavanaugh. Tomorrow it will be a man you love—any man who stands in the way of their power. The man in your life can be destroyed without due process. That son of yours can be wiped out in a world that treats slander is if it were evidence.
2. You have the power to punish the evil doers. The one bright light is your power to vote. Get off the fence and embrace reality—no matter how painful it is to digest. The Democratic Party has been seized by power-starved wolves. You support this by not voting. You do so at the cost of your own decency.
God has granted us two bright lights:
1. The power of prayer. Today we discard tepid prayer. This is the day of crying out to God in clear passion and bold faith. We dive into prayer. We must run to the war room. It is all out in the open. We are locked in mortal combat with devils—devils bent on destroying freedom.
2. The power to act. Prayer without action is a mockery. Intercession without obedience is a sham. Raise your voice. Call your Senator. Arm yourself with facts. The scoundrels who would destroy anyone and anything to stay in power count on your apathy. They sneer at your convictions.
This November will be remembered as the final turning point for America—toward evil and destruction, or toward redemption. A loss will be worse than if Hillary had won.
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?
I watched Diane Feinstein oversee San Francisco’s darkest night. Mayor Moscone had been assassinated by Dan White in San Francisco. 900 people from the People’s Temple were killed by Jim Jones in a South American jungle. She acquitted herself with honor, strength and wisdom.
Today, I don’t know this woman. What my heart says is that person who held a city together is still in there—somewhere. My mind tells me that what we have now is a cold, cynical, calculating politician throwing a bone to the hard left in order to win reelection.
A George Soros funded educator has gone public with an accusation that Brett Kavanagh—nominee for the Supreme Court—sexually assaulted her back in high school. A charge he vehemently denies.
I don’t expect everyone to believe me but in my soul where it matters, I know this accusation is a lie. More importantly, Diane knows this is a lie. She knows, that we know, if there was anything to this story, it would have come out a long time ago. The timing does not pass the smell test—it stinks to high heaven.
Diane has caved to the Socialist, Me Too#, Antifa, Kill Trump wing of the Democratic Party. She has lit her torch to the fire of the crazed villagers.
I picture her pounding at the mirror—knowing full well she is lying—repeating over and over again, “it’s for the greater good, it’s for the greater good.”
By running this Kabuki Theater, the Left has utterly disgraced itself. When Bill Maher admits “this makes us look bad” you know they have disgraced themselves.
How disgusting are California Democrats, if they’re telling the world this is how you win our vote in California. Diane can no longer run as the voice of reason in the wacko world of Maxine Waters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders. Her integrity has been drowned out—finally, by her own hand.
Kavanaugh will be confirmed. No proof of the assault will be found. This too shall pass. But what must never pass in the mind of any believer…is what you are doing to your soul, you country, and your children if you pull a lever for any Democrat this November. Why? Because if Diane—the last bastion of reason—is gone, the whole party is gone.
A TERRIFYING YEAR — YET THERE’S HOPE
By Ben Stein
Away from the White House and Justice Department, America has been doing great things.
This has been a terrifying year. Unspeakable brutality by Islamist terrorists in the Middle East and in Africa. A level of barbarity towards the innocent that would have made Eichmann envious. A world that in large measure kowtows to the most violent and bloodthirsty and turns on the most innocent and law-abiding (think Hamas vs. Israel). In this year, no one demonstrated in the streets of Europe’s capitals against Islamists who murdered children by the thousands but did protest screamingly against the major guardians of law and decency in the world, the USA and Israel.
In this year, man’s essential mean-spiritedness ran riot, with fanatics of various stripes and Islamists brutalizing universities either physically or by the essential evil of their tortured so-called “thoughts.” This was at prestige universities in the United States.
In 2014, the President and the Attorney-General, both men of color, sought to awaken the demons of racism for votes. That was not “just politics.” That was something like sedition from on high. People are fragile on the subject of race. To have the most exalted in the land stir up fear and anger about race over highly dubious claims of racism was in fact wildly dangerous racism in and of itself.
To see the “black power” flags run up on Pennsylvania Avenue by the mightiest of the mighty was a distressing spectacle. It got the GOP overwhelming control of Congress. I am sure it will get the GOP the White House if it continues, for even Hillary is not inevitable if the Democrat party makes itself the party of anti-white racist feeling.
Is America racist? Well, Americans are people. People dislike other people pushing them around. Black people do not like being pushed around and white people do not like being pushed around. That is not racism. That is basic humanity. Nations get into trouble when one sector pushes another sector around for grievances that were once horribly real, but no longer are.
In other words, until Mr. Obama came along to capitalize on racial feelings, poll data showed Americans feeling pretty good about race relations. Now, Americans are fearful and anxious about race. This is a colossal step backwards. This is what happens when the President is beholden to extremists and agitators and must dance to the tune they call about race-baiting. I totally see how it came about. But it’s time to walk back. Time, high time, to back down from that race-baiting cliff.
In other words, when the President of the United States listens to Al Sharpton and takes him seriously, we are in a lot of trouble. We are a glorious, God-centered nation. We can rise above racial antagonisms. We have done it in the past. We can do it in the future, if, if, if politicians can step back from mortgaging America’s future to win votes. A big “if”…
So my gloomy thoughts run on this glorious Christmas in Rancho Mirage, with the stars painting the night sky behind my palm trees.
But I also have seen great things this year. My job is, in large part, to speak at events, often business-related events. And here I see magnificent things happening. I see auto dealers who have completely changed the way selling and financing and servicing of cars works. A business notorious for sharp practice is now a business people trust and love. It is fun to buy a car.
I have seen the tenacious oil people, who fought like warriors to drill—and now they have brought cheap gasoline to America—at huge cost to themselves. When you fill your tank for roughly two-thirds of what it would have cost a year ago, it’s no thanks to the government. No thanks to Hollywood. It is thanks to those oilmen whom the government loves to criticize and lambaste.
But the most surprising and impressive people I saw were the finance people. Cursed and double-cursed by the media, they have wrought miracles. In health care especially, they have financed breakthroughs in diagnosis and cures for disease, in management of pain, in making the lives of us humans longer, more pleasant, and pain-free. It is an inspiring sight to see a room filled with the best and brightest of our young people and middle-aged people, men and women of all races, seeking to find the best medicines and diagnostic tools and anodynes to keep the world’s people’s lives brighter.
Yes, they do it for money. That’s fine. That is a perfectly good motive. But they do it, and the meds get in the pipeline and heart disease and tumors get diagnosed early. This is what finance should be.
I have seen America working together for a better life for the whole world, the intelligence and money coming out of finance and into the hearts and bloodstreams of Earth’s people. It is an inspiring sight. On TV and on the campuses, people look for trouble and ways to cause pain. In the venture capital and private equity firms, without fanfare, without the mainstream media, lives are being made better. And if profits come, they pay for the retirements of firefighters and police and elementary school teachers. Capitalism is working beautifully. If we can keep the wolves of envy away from the door, man’s world will be sunnier.
