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.

FTA: ´´Kavanaugh thanked Trump for his “steadfast, unwavering support.” He’s right. The president stood firm until the end, and won. Now it’s time for Democrats to be honest with themselves about why they lost.´´


THAT will NEVER happen. The Rats live in a world of hate and lies, backed up by their totally Useless Media. For whatever reason, they think we Normals are just too stupid to notice this. We´ll see on Nov. 6th.

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.

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.

The biggest Dem campaign promise is to Impeach Justice BK. Problem is he can only be impeached, like the President, for crimes committed while in office. But give it a shot. At least if fires up their lynch mobs.

Comey, Careless and Corrupt
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/11/2018 5:07:22     Post Reply
Drunk on his own self-deluded rectitude, James Comey has become one of the most insufferable voices on the Left. He teaches “ethics” at William & Mary, but it is hard to imagine a more unethical FBI director than one who signs off on the most invasive spying warrants imaginable without bothering to verify them, or even know their rationale. That came out in his shameless testimony last Friday in closed session with Congress. It was clear from his slipshod testimony that he hadn’t even read the FISA warrants he approved. He breezily acknowledged that the Steele dossier,

Cohen’s pleas concocted by

I’m experiencing 1998 déjà vu as prosecutors once again work overtime to turn extramarital affairs and the efforts to keep them secret into impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors. Unable to get the witnesses to compose the stories they want, today’s prosecutors are discovering they can simply compose the crimes by manipulating the pleas of men desperate to protect their families. The Michael Cohen sentencing memo took aim directly at both Cohen and President Donald Trump. It was used, unethically, to cast the president as directing a criminal conspiracy to make “secret and illegal” payments. Sentencing memos are not supposed

Shakespeare famously wrote of the “sceptered isle” of Britain acting as a moat “against the envy of less happier lands.” Lately, the less happier lands are winning in a rout. Britain is suffering a political meltdown as it struggles to make good on a historic vote in 2016 to leave the European Union. The decision for a so-called Brexit was a stirring statement of independence and self-government by a people who have defined themselves down the centuries by their stiff-necked resistance to anyone — whether overweening monarchs or continental tyrants — who would threaten either.

Royce Lamberth is an outspoken and sometimes controversial federal judge. Appointed by President Reagan, he has shown no partiality in going after litigants he considers to be malefactors. This time, it is the State Department and the Department of Justice. Judge Lamberth is presiding over the lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch against the State Department, asking for emails relating to the Benghazi talking points that were promulgated after that attack. On Thursday, he issued an order blasting the federal agencies and authorizing discovery by Judicial Watch, as described below. In his order, Lamberth sets forth a long effort to deceive

The nation´s most notorious missing person´s case, the disappearance of Teamsters Labor leader Jimmy Hoffa in 1975, can be solved by the stroke of a pen. The U.S. government should order the immediate release – un-redacted and in full – of the FBI´s secret files that the bureau has compiled on the Hoffa´s case, and also order the re-testing of the blood evidence that Fox News found on the floorboards of the Detroit house where a major suspect told me that he murdered Hoffa.

Legal trouble for President Trump is coming from all sides. There’s evidence Paul Manafort was still communicating with the White House this year. There’s evidence suggesting the Russian government was offering “synergy” with the Trump campaign. There’s further evidence Trump directed Michael Cohen to make the hush-money payments to pornographer Stormy Daniels. It’s still very unclear whether Trump broke any laws. It’s perfectly clear, however, that Trump got himself in this perfectly avoidable mess through bad behavior. For starters: Had Trump not cheated on his wife with a porn actress, he would not have found himself

Many people I know in law enforcement circles shuddered when James Comey tweeted recently that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker “may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.” To them, Comey’s Twitter attack crossed that “blue line” – the one that real cops abide by, to never criticize fellow officers and to always have their backs. I had a different reaction. I found it odd that a man who started his Twitter career by quoting Bible verses about justice might have forgotten one of the golden utterances from Jesus himself:

Now that Robert Mueller and his merry band of wannabe Inspector Javerts have revealed much of their hand, we can see more clearly what their investigation is all about. Aside from the nauseatingly familiar Washington corruption of the Manafort/Podesta stripe, the Great Russia Probe of 2016-2018 (and onwards) has morphed into the even more nauseatingly familiar Washington sex scandal. If we are to believe legal-eagle Jonathan Turley--and why not; he seems pretty competent--Donald Trump´s most serious problem (possibly rising to obstruction) is not Russia collusion, whatever that is, but the hush money payoffs

The City of Lights, Paris, has been illuminated in recent days by cars set alight by thousands of protesting “Yellow Vests”—largely middle class people who earn their living by driving or who commute to get to work. The cause of their ire is a scheduled 25 cents-per-gallon increase in gas taxes, and about 10 cents on diesel, to fight climate change. French President Macron, deeply unpopular, just reversed course on the new green tax—Parisians are already paying about $7.06 per gallon for gasoline, almost half of that in taxes.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77. This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation. And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations. A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed.
