The Kavanaugh saga shows we have not yet
plumbed the depths of Democratic ruthlessness

Washington Post, by Marc A. Thiessen

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/11/2018 4:57:27 AM

President Trump apologized to Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh and his family for the “terrible pain and suffering” they endured during his confirmation process, declaring that “what happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process.” Democrats seem to be taking the opposite lesson from the Kavanaugh fight. As Politico recently tweeted, “After failing to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Democrats wonder if it’s time to be more ruthless.” More ruthless? There are a lot of reasons the effort to stop Kavanaugh failed, but a lack of ruthlessness is not one of them. Kavanaugh’s opponents

FTA: ´[the Democrats] once decried the politics of personal destruction.´

Is there a fancy name for pretending to accept the enemy´s premise?

Democrats have never been about anything else. The Clintons´ constant moaning (which continues to the present) about being attacked was/is even more annoying given their tactics.

Somebody help me out here. What´s more ruthless than dragging out a quasi-professor and assorted sex pervert clients of their resident creepy porn lawyer to lie and smear a decent candidate for the Supreme Court for weeks? Maybe actually shooting Republican politicians while they´re playing softball? Oh wait, they´ve already done that too.

I´m just looking forward to their going "Ruthless", as in Buzzy Ginsberg taking her final nap.

I guess nothing Democrats do next would surprise us now! I DO think Trump should shut down the Mobs the next time they decide to attack people who are trying to go about their daily business. I think it´s time for Consequences for getting arrested. Do not just put them in Handcuffs and then let them go free without a FINE. They might be getting paid, but will the group paying them step up and bail them out of Jail? That should the next deterrent to Mob Rule!

The leaders of the Democrat party in Congress comprise an entire spectrum of deceit, deception, and manipulation. On one end they have folks like Schumer and Schiff. These are men who can lie, prevaricate, and equivocate in a smooth, emotionless, almost robotic cadence. At the other end, they have poseurs who feign anger and outrage, and make fiery but totally illogical statements and demands like Hirono and Gillebrand. In the middle, often exhibiting the corrupt traits from either or both ends of the spectrum are Pelosi, Harris, Booker, Durbin, Feinstein, Warren, and a score of others. These folks were shocked, disappointed, and incensed by the loss in 2016. They had plans for us, which they still intend to implement, given the opportunity to seize power over us again. Since they had become used to dealing with mild mannered Republican opponents, like Romney, both Bushes, McConnell, and Linsey Graham, they were not prepared for Donald Trump, a barbarian, who didn´t give a damn about their persistent insults, moral preening, virtue signaling, or name calling. IMO, it´s the stark contrast that Trump has provided to the tepid behavior of the Republican in the past, that has caused the democrats to drop the pretenses and show their true natures, their true tactics, and their corrupt goals. And, happily, as a result of the abysmal behavior of the democrats, some of the Republicans like McConnell and Graham have found some personal courage. Both men had a Mr. Smith comes to Washington moment during the Kavanaugh hearings. So, like a cornered, gut shot, weasel, the democratic party is not dead, but it´s wounded and desperate. As they demonstrated over the last few weeks, there is NO depth of depravity too deep for them to plumb.

In To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus is called upon to shoot a rabid dog. Afterward he warns the children not to go near it. He said that dog was more dangerous than when he was alive. A good analogy for today´s Democrats. They´re wounded, but now we see how dangerous they really are.

Execellent analysis #7! My thoughts exactly.

It thrills my soul to see some Republicans finding a wee bit of courage. My hope and prayer is that others will have an epiphany soon because we certainly need warriors on our side who will not accept further demented democrat shenanigans. The democrats have been so disrupted by this President they have, indeed, shown their true colors. It’s about time they were taken down a peg or two. We no longer will accept their arguments, their arrogance, and most of all their violence. The country will not be ruled by sanctimonious tyrants posing as public servants. We have had enough! November 6th we send that message loud and clear.

We are witnessing the fruits of Obama presidency. For 8 years Obama divided this country along special interest groups. We were no longer a country to Obama, we were groups. We were placed into buckets. We were labeled as whites, blacks, gays, straight, transgender, union, non-union, illegals, middle class, the one percent and the elites. We were no longer Americans. To Obama America doesn´t exist. All groups were pitted against each other to create chaos. The bpurpose was to create an atmosphere of uncivility and violence. This is how you turn a great country into a banana republic. Violence. We have a choice on Nov. 6th. Either make America great again or tutn into a banana republic. Got it.

I have watched rabid left-wing mobs daily disrupt our representatives and try to prevent them from governing. They’ve followed them throughout the halls of Congress screaming hysterically, and as loudly as they would in a sports arena. They’ve pinned them in elevators like trapped animals where they have let loose with disrespectful tirades periodically interjected with, “LOOK AT ME WHEN I’M TALKING TO YOU!” They broke into a Republican Congressman’s office and physically assaulted him! These vile individuals even tried to break down the door of the Supreme Court during the solemn swearing in of a new Justice.

I’ve got a pretty simple mind, and I always look for the easiest solution first, so it seems to me that a crackdown by the Capitol police would have prevented a lot of this. If they can’t prevent future incidences, they’re just overpaid window-dressing.

Fortunately for sweet reason, Trump´s serial quashing of good news and good policy with his tweets was not present in this controversy.
Now, if his staff could just convince him that few things worth saying can be said in a tweet, perhaps we might some actual movement in the right direction.
My guess is: Trump won´t take the solid advice to reduce his use of Twitter to an irreducible minimum.

There are no depths to the depravity of the demoncrats. The party began a civil war, with hundreds of thousands of deaths, to continue to enslave people they consider non-human.

When that didn´t work, they dreamed up Jim Crow, the Klan, and Segregation. They took credit for Civil Rights legislation, something they vehemently opposed for a century.

Then they continued discrimination with Affirmative Action and group preferences. They are actually proud of murdering millions of innocent babies, and the depravity of the more militant and nihilistic homosexuals. How much lower can they go? All the way to hell, it seems.

If they loved truth and good, then they would love God and his son, Jesus. They belong to their father, the devil, and carry out his desires. Murder, lies, and accusations. Community organizing to sow dissent, resentment and hatred.

Concerted opposition to the independent judiciary has begun to percolate on the left with little scrutiny. Last week, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, Hillary Clinton’s former spokesman Brian Fallon, and Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna rallied activists seeking to enervate judicial independence through proposals like court-packing and term limits for justices. Left-wing influencers like Democratic Rep.-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and attorney Michael Avenatti have endorsed the former proposition already. Progressive websites like Vox.com have repeatedly challenged the notion of judicial review. And dozens of leading lawyers on the left are organizing support for such ideas. The list goes on.

There is so much wrong with Sports Illustrated’s decision to have Christine Blasey Ford present its 2018 Inspiration of the Year award, it is hard to know where to begin. For starters, there’s the issue that the magazine’s treatment of Ford is more befitting a celebrity athlete than a 52-year-old woman who alleges she was sexually assaulted nearly 40 years ago in high school. (tweet) Ford was not chosen for having any sort of meaningful affiliation with the award recipient, former gymnast Rachael Denhollander, whose testimony eventually led to the downfall of convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar.

After a year rocked by the #MeToo movement and months of negotiations, Congress is on the verge of reforming its own sexual harassment regulations. House and Senate negotiators reached an agreement Wednesday to overhaul congressional regulations governing sexual harassment, clearing the way for a vote on the measure in both chambers over the next two weeks, before Congress adjourns for the year. Under the terms of the compromise announced Wednesday, members of Congress would be held personally liable for sexual harassment and retaliation settlements, requiring them to reimburse the Treasury. It would also publicly identify members

In his federal court sentencing hearing Wednesday, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen cut a tragic figure of his own making as he tried to convince a judge to spare him from prison for a host of crimes ranging from tax fraud to bank fraud to lying to Congress. He claimed he was a trusting soul undone by the ambition and the machinations of an evil man – Donald Trump. It played out like a modern take on the Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire.” All that was missing

Congressional Dems are butting heads with President Trump over his demand for ­$5 billion to continue building a wall along the southern border. Likely incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vows she won’t spend one dollar for a wall and calls the idea “immoral.” Not building the wall is what’s truly immoral. Allowing poor migrants to flood across the southern border forces taxpayers to toil longer and pay more taxes to feed and house them, accommodate their children in public schools and pay for their medical care. Americans are already maxed out caring for our own needy, including the homeless

House Democrats are eagerly eyeing the chance to revive earmarks when they take the majority next year, saying it is Congress’s duty to siphon the money to pet projects — and hoping a return to pork-barrel spending will help keep back-benchers in line. But they’re wary of taking the leap alone and say they’re hoping Senate Republicans will join them in reversing an eight-year ban. Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, poised to become House majority leader when the new Congress convenes in January, told reporters he expects bipartisan support for a return to earmarks.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who arranged the bureau´s interview with then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 — the interview that ultimately led to Flynn´s guilty plea on one count of making false statements — suggested Flynn not have a lawyer present at the session, according to newly-filed court documents. In addition, FBI officials, along with the two agents who interviewed Flynn, decided specifically not to warn him that there would be penalties for making false statements because the agents wanted to ensure that Flynn was "relaxed" during the session.

He´s clearly a very handsome, charming man with a talent for promoting himself on social media and an abundance of that most mysterious and amorphous political quality: charisma. I mean he´s a loser in the precise sense that his singular accomplishment in American public life (besides getting himself elected to a House seat in far-west Texas four years ago) has been to lose a Senate race to the stupendously unpopular Republican Ted Cruz.

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability.

She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.
