On October 6th, DC Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as an associate justice of the United States Supreme Court shortly after the US Senate voted 50-48 to confirm his nomination after a series of the ugliest confirmation hearings in American history that included completely false allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh by three different women. However, the Democrats are mistaken if they think that Kavanaugh's confirmation will help them win the midterm elections. If anything, their behavior throughout the process didn't just hurt them, it hurt everything associated with them.
Even before President Donald Trump named Kavanaugh to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on July 9th, the Democrats were going to be against anybody Trump nominated, using every excuse they could think of, like "It's an election year" or "Trump's under investigation and shouldn't nominate anybody until it ends." Gee, wasn't Bill Clinton under investigation when he nominated either Ruth Bader Ginsberg or Stephen Breyer to the US Supreme Court?
The Democrats and their allies did everything in their power to ruin Kavanaugh's reputation. They tried to paint him as far right at first, even further right than the late Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas. However, NBC News killed that narrative when they reported about 24 hours after the announcement that Justice Kennedy, a moderate, signed off on Judge Kavanaugh being his replacement, partly since Kavanaugh was once a law clerk under Kennedy.
The initial confirmation hearings became a circus with so many paid anti-Kavanaugh protestors sneaking into the room to disrupt the proceedings, which begged the question why the hearings were even open to the general public in the first place, that Kavanaugh's wife and young daughters were moved out of that room for their own protection.
Then the far left tried to paint Kavanaugh as "uncaring towards victims of gun violence" because gun control scumbag Fred Guttenberg(whose daughter was killed earlier this year in the school shooting in Parkland, Florida) tried to walk up to Kavanaugh during one of the recesses only to be turned away by security, then he falsely claimed that Kavanuagh refused to shake his hand. Even if that were remotely true, I wouldn't have shaken that motherfucker's hand either. Mainly because I find people like Guttenberg to be lower than canine feces since he and others have or are attempting to politically and financially profit off his daughter's death. It'd be like how Mick Foley said in his first autobiography that he felt a feeling of shame when he shook the hand of the guy that murdered Bruiser Brody and got away with it.
About a week after the initial confirmation hearings, when it became obvious that Kavanaugh still had the votes to be confirmed, they went back to what sunk actual religious zealot Roy Moore's US Senate bid last December: allegations of sexual misconduct whether those accusations are true or not because the far left lynch mob doesn't care if it's true or not.
The first accusations against Judge Kavanaugh were leaked to the tabloid trash news media most likely by Sen. Dianne Feinstein(D-California) or a member of her staff since she sat on the letter by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford sent to her in July about the incident while both were still in high school and Feinstein claims she's the only person in the US Senate who knew about the letter because Dr. Ford wanted the allegations kept confidential. If that is the case and if Sen. Feinstein truly believed Dr. Ford's claims, why didn't Feinstein go directly to the FBI and ask for an investigation until it became politically convienent to do so? Wouldn't that be considered aiding and abetting Judge Kavanaugh?
The first accusation against Kavanaugh also exposed how the Democrats and the far left no longer respect the constitutional right of due process under the law and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Scumbags like Sen. Kristen Gillibrand(D-New York) and Sen. Mazie Hirono(D-Hawaii) outright said they believed the allegations without seeing any evidence at all. Hypocrite Hirono even said that "all men should shut up and step up", even though she shut up and did nothing while her friend Sen. Daniel Inuoye(D-Hawaii) was himself accused of sexual misconduct. Then they tried to say Kavanuagh has the burden of proof because he's not actually on trial or some bullshit like that. That's wrong.
When Dr. Ford finally agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee after about a week of negotiations, a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, tells Ronan Farrow at The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed his Mr. Cocko at a party in college. So he pulled a Ric Flair. Whatever. Then a third woman, Julie Swetnick, with Stormy Daniels' creepy attorney Michael Avenatti in tow, makes a claim so ridiculously over the top that it actually damaged the credibility of both Dr. Ford's and Miss Ramirez's allegations. Swetnick's allegation was that Kavanaugh regularly hosted parties in college where he and his friends would get girls so drunk and drugged up that every guy that wanted a turn with the girl could get a turn, so to speak. The thing that made Swetnick's claim unbelievable was that she claimed to have gone to TEN of these parties and she just so happened to be the victim in the tenth party that she went to.
Any rational thinking person would look at that and say, "if you knew what was going on in the first party, why did you keep going to these parties in the first place? Or even call the police?" These were the questions Senators Lindsey Graham(R-South Carolina) and Susan Collins(R-Maine) had. I mean, somebody on 4chan claimed he and his girlfriend pranked Avenatti. That alone made me question the credibility of the third accuser. But if the Democrats and the far left thought that Kavanaugh or President Trump would be shamed into withdrawing his name from consideration, they were foolish to think that.
On Sept. 27th, the hearing into Dr. Ford allegations came and went and it's not every day when you get to witness a live reinactment of the Salem Witch Trials. I tuned out on her testimony because all it really became was the Republicans asking questions through a special prosecutor from Arizona who specializes in sexual assault cases and the Democrats being more interested in kissing her ass. When Judge Kavanaugh began his testimony and denied all allegations against him, all hell broke loose. After Sen. Dick Durbin(D-Illinois) basically tried to get Kavanaugh to call the FBI on himself, Sen. Graham went all fire and fury on the Democrats, calling the proceedings a "political sham" and telling the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, "I hope to God you never get power."
Sen. Orrin Hatch(R-Utah), who is retiring at the end of his term in January like Sen. Jeff Flake(R-Arizona) is, said that he never thought that it would get worse than the confirmation hearings for Robert Bork or Clarence Thomas. Sen. Ted Cruz(R-Texas) called for an investigation into Sen. Feinstein's handling of Dr. Ford's allegations, which Sen. Graham would later call for himself. Hell, I think someone(might have been Sen. Hatch from what aI remember) also quoted the Senator that told Rep. Joe McCarthy way back when, "Have you no decency? Have you no decency at all?"
Sen. Cory Booker(D-New Jersey) was the worst of the Democrats that day. I initially disagreed with Styxhexenhammer666 that Booker should have been expelled from the Senate for his weird "I am Spartacus" moment during the first hearings where he released documents that he claimed to show that Kavanaugh supported racial profiling because it would just make the Jace Turner* clone a martyr, but his behavior Sept. 27th made me change my mind on that. Booker asked Kavanaugh if he wished Dr. Ford never came forward with her allegations. Kavanaugh didn't answer and I wouldn't have answered that leading question either. Then again, by the Democrats' own standards, since Cory Booker admitted to groping a girl in high school, if Kavanaugh's not fit to sit on the Supreme Court based on something that allegedly happened in high school, then Booker is equally unfit to be in the Senate and should resign his seat like Al Franken did.
The next day, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 11-10 on party lines to forward the nomination to the full Senate, but after the vote, Sen. Flake asked for a week-long FBI investigation on Dr. Ford's allegations, presumably after he was accosted in an elevator by a woman claiming to be a sexual assault survivor(it has since come out that the woman was a paid protester by a group funded by scumbag George Soros; seriously, President Trump should do like Obama did and sic the IRS on Soros and every group he's giving money to; Does anybody still think the Citizens United case was a good decision by the US Supreme Court?). Which President Trump did order since Kavanaugh wouldn't have had the votes to be confirmed without it.
On Oct. 4th, the FBI released its findings to the full Senate(not the public), and it went about as expected. Most Republicans saw that there was no evidence to corroborate Dr. Ford's claims and the Democrats making excuses(as I predicted), whining that the investigation was incomplete and a sham. Then they tried to use Kavanaugh's behavior and temperment at the second hearing as another desperate excuse for voting against Kavanaugh.
So, because of Sen. Feinstein leaking allegations of sexual assault against him without any evidence to back those claims, a crime he fully believes in his heart he did NOT do, and everybody who does not know him personally completely shitting on him and fully believe his accusers without any evidence to back up those claims over him, Brett Kavanaugh doesn't get to lash out at his attackers or even get to face his accusers? What, Kavanaugh is supposed to act like Kevin Bacon in Animal House and say "Thank you, sir, may I have another?" I don't blame him for lashing out against the Democrats.
Ultimately the vote was 50-48 because one Republican senator was unable to vote since he was going to his daughter's wedding and Sen. Lisa Murkowski(R-Alaska) chose not to vote either way. One Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin(West Virginia) voted to confirm Kavanaugh along with Sen. Flake and Sen. Collins, who had a speech on the Senate floor after the cloture vote the day before explaining why she planned to vote yes to Kavanaugh by outlining and dissecting every aspect of the allegations against him. Every witness Dr. Ford claimed was in the house with her either didn't remember or denied everything she alleged. At least two different men told the committee that Dr. Ford might be mistaking Judge Kavanuagh for them, even though she claims that she was 100% certain it was Kavanaugh. Dr. Ford couldn't even remember how she left the party or even got to the party in the first place. The prosecutor the GOP brought in to do the questioning for them told them that Dr. Ford gave her less evidence than a normal "he said, she said" case.
While the Democrats, their supporters, and their paid-off fake protestors continue their temper tantrum, they fail to realize that they awoke sleeping dragons. Sen. Lindsey Graham was seen as the recently deceased Sen. John McCain's puppet, but since McCain succumbed to his brain tumor, it seems like Graham regained his balls and brains. If the Republican base weren't already energized and angered by the Democrats' behavior before the Kavanaugh confirmation insanity, they are now. And not only did they piss off the Republicans, they pissed off the independents and even moderate Democrats who are tired of their fellow moderates' kowtowing to the far left regressive socialists like idiotic scumbag Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, racist ideologues like Mad Maxine Waters, or their psycho supporters like everybody in Hollywood. When an idiot writer for Stephen Colbert's late night talk show tweets that he was glad that Justice Kavanuagh's life was ruined by these false allegations, it shows rational thinking people how unhinged some of these people really are becoming, moreso since President Trump won in 2016.
These false allegations against Justice Kavanaugh also irreparably damaged the so-called #MeToo
movement, which is starting to be seen as the witch hunt that Paul Joseph Watson and others were warning us about when Roy Moore was falsely accused of sexual misconduct. Notice how those allegations disappeared the minute Moore conceded the US Senate election and when he sued the accusers for defamation of chacter. Which I think Kavanaugh should consider doing to Ford, Swetnick, and Ramirez. It's interesting that Dr. Ford has stated through her attorneys(who were recommended to her by Sen. Feinstein to begin with) that she does not want Kavanaugh impeached from the Supreme Court if Democrats did somehow retake control of the House of Representatives.
I find it funny that the left has already started eating itself in the wake of Kavanaugh's confirmation and swearing in. They started going after Michael Avenatti. The New York Times posts an op-ed blaming all white women because more white women voted for Donald Trump in the last Presidential election.
I think it's time for every one of these protesters to put down the crackpipe, grow up, and get a real life.
*-I think Cory "Tears of Rage" Booker has an uncanny resemblence to the guy that plays former Sentinel Services agent Jace Turner on the Fox TV show The Gifted.
