Out of everything that’s happened during these past few weeks, THIS is what angers (and terrifies) me the most.

The Palpable, Existential Danger Among Us spectator.org/337085-2/
The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process has exposed the Democrats for the threat to the American constitutional republic they are.
(Surprising too, as the Democrats have been telling us for two years that TRUMP would be the one to destroy our democracy. Innumerable articles have been written about what Trump “may” do, while @TheDemocrats are right now, actually DOING it).
On Monday, Brett Kavanaugh, the distinguished federal appeals court judge nominated by Trump for Supreme Court judgeship, the confirmation of which has become perhaps the ugliest, most nakedly political horror show in history, went with his wife to an interview on Fox News.
“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process,” Kavanaugh said following a weekend in which 1 allegation against him, that he sexually assaulted Christine Ford, fell apart when all 4 of the witnesses she named to corroborate her accusations rebutted her claim.
“The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats against my family will not drive me out. The character assassination will not succeed.”
Kavanaugh was right. But when the Ford allegations died, up came a New Yorker piece outlining another fish story, in which Deborah Ramirez alleged that Kavanaugh, as a freshman at Yale, had dropped his pants and displayed his manhood to her during a drunken party at the school.
The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer offered the story almost apologetically...
After the requisite clickbait headlines and lede, it spent the second half of its text largely admitting Ramirez’ story lacked any corroboration to speak of and even went so far as to recognize that Ramirez herself wasn’t sure Kavanaugh was the expositionist in question.
And no sooner did the Ramirez gambit meet with a tepid response even from the partisan Dem legacy media than the “creepy porn lawyer” @MichaelAvenatti resurfaced.
No sooner than his 15 mins of fame from his chaotic and not-quite-dignified performance as Stormy’s ineffective legal counsel were mercifully over, Avenatti conjured himself back into the headlines with a new client who alleges Kavanaugh was a gang-rape specialist in his youth.
Bear in mind this is a distinguished jurist who had endured no less than SIX background investigations by the FBI which uncovered none of these scurrilous allegations;
...if there was a pattern of sexual misbehavior by Kavanaugh our premier investigative agency would surely have uncovered it.
No red flags turned up — not until a bunch of partisan Democrat political operatives desperate to prevent a doctrinaire constitutionalist judge from taking Anthony Kennedy’s swing vote seat on the Supreme Court decided to pull out all the stops in pursuit of that agenda.
In the face of these merciless smears Kavanaugh is forced to confess the kind of sexual truths which, in our current society, are socially disqualifying more than just embarrassing, just to discredit a story a sexual predator concocted purely out of partisan political avarice
What these people have done to Kavanaugh isn’t the usual Washington political antics — and that says much. After all, it’s still very much in the national memory what Democrats in the Senate tried to do to Clarence Thomas, and what they did to Robert Bork.
In the case of Bork the Dems, led by serial sexual abuser Ted Kennedy, whose drunken extramarital antics included an actual body count, focused on Bork’s recognized opposition to infanticide as a primary justification for defeating his nomination — and had the numbers to do so.
Lacking such numbers a few years later, the Democrats went deeper on Thomas, finding a middling university professor named Anita Hill who had worked with the judge in the federal bureaucracy to spin yarns about his supposed ribald behavior in the workplace.
Thomas’s response was forceful and convincing, enough to put him on the Court and banish the Anita Hill imbroglio to partisan quarters of discussion for the next 25 years.
Which is what Kavanaugh’s Fox News interview was aimed at doing. But in the interview Kavanaugh lacked the fire of Thomas, who scalded his tormentors for the “high-tech lynching of uppity blacks” they had planned.
Instead, he refuted the allegations of his sexual misdeeds by claiming he spent his high school and early college years as a virgin, a contention which was by turns believable, and tragic.
I don’t want to know Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual history. And if you do, there is something egregiously wrong with you.
It’s quite obvious Kavanaugh himself is no more comfortable with the discussion of that information than any of us are, but he’s forced to bear his soul to achieve the pinnacle of his life’s work.
And this is disgusting on a scale we may never have experienced in modern American history — for which one side in our politics is responsible.

What consequences do we impose on the Democrat Party for stooping to this level?
Let’s understand that this isn’t just about Brett Kavanaugh — though if it’s restricted to him the events of the past week are destructive and outrageous enough. Who will consent to running for office now? Who will stand for a federal appointment confirmable by the Senate?
Who will be willing to crawl through the mile of rancid sewer-pipe that is the American political process just to achieve a government job?

The answer is the one the Democrats want it to be. Namely, that no conservative will tolerate what Kavanaugh is fighting through.
In the future, our options will be restricted to polite progressives or the Democrats’ pet RINO’s, if not the hard-core socialists and cultural Marxists the Left would like to impose on us.
There is a stark choice — either to go gently into this good night of American dissolution, or fight. Hard. Now.

And this is where this fall’s midterm elections come in.
It takes 11 members of the 21-member Senate Judiciary Committee to move the Kavanaugh nomination to the Senate floor, and there are 11 Republicans on the committee.
Only one of those 11 — Arizona’s @JeffFlake, who has embraced the #NeverTrump conceit as his personal approval ratings have descended to hellish levels — appears to be problematic for Kavanaugh’s nomination.
And only 3 Republicans on the Senate floor are questionable votes.

@senjudiciary‘s @ChuckGrassley has to insure he has Flake’s vote before he can move forward, and Mitch McConnell has to insure he has the Flakes, Collinses, and Murkowskis before he can hold a floor vote.
It’s not yet time to declare the Republican establishment weak and ineffectual on the Kavanaugh confirmation; this isn’t as easy as we’d like it to be.
However, time is running out — and this is the Republicans’ Super Bowl. They sold their voters the idea that if we gave them the House, Senate, and White House, things would finally be made right from the frightening abuses of the Obama years, and we delivered.
Republican voters tolerated the poor performances of Senators like Corker, McCain, Collins, and Murkowski on the assurance that where it came to judicial appointments they would be a marked positive difference from Dem alternatives.
In Trump’s case we were told that whether his history was that of a conservative or not, he’d clearly present America with better judges than Hillary Clinton would.
Well, so far Trump has been immaculate in nominating conservatives to the federal bench. And if the GOP Senate, populated by swamp creatures who for decades have feasted at the expense and adulation of Republican and conservative organizations, can’t confirm Kavanaugh, well…
Let’s remember that Kavanaugh, as sterling as his reputation as a jurist might be, is the very epitome of an establishment Republican.
In fact, we can say that he might be the single most salutary example of an establishment Republican — someone who, on balance, Trump conservatives can appreciate alongside the old Bush guard.
And even the more sober-minded liberal (note, liberal, rather than progressive, because increasingly there’s a difference which can’t be ignored) Democrats can concede is qualified for the Supreme Court.
If the GOP establishment can’t see Kavanaugh’s nomination as a hill to die on, then may everlasting shame — and electoral apocalypse — fall upon their heads.
It won’t come to that, because it can’t. This week will see Kavanaugh dragged through the Senate into the Supreme Court, whether his dignity survives intact or no. And when it happens, it will be gut-check time for the GOP voter base six weeks from the 2018 midterm elections.
It’s been said, and of course it’s TRUE, that should Kavanaugh’s nomination fail there is zero justification for voters to bother showing up to head off the much-ballyhooed “blue wave” the media is so hard at work trying to gin up in November.
Those voters put Trump in the White House as a signal that the corrupt Hillary Clinton-led Washington in-crowd was unacceptable.
And if the soft coup signaled by the Mueller investigation hasn’t been enough to infuriate them into reprising their 2016 efforts the Kavanaugh confirmation process should certainly do the job.
Because what the current circus — complete with Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife being assaulted in a Washington restaurant over the Kavanaugh nomination — shows is that today’s Democrats will stop at nothing to achieve political power.
There is no limiting principle to those people, just as there was no limiting principle to the Left’s aims in Cuba, Nicaragua, Chile, Venezuela, or Grenada.
If Kavanaugh isn’t a wake-up call dictating to America that they must be rebuked at the ballot box, we don’t want to see the next iteration and what might be necessary to preserve our society against the threat it presents.
That might not even be an electoral question. It might be something we do not wish to contemplate. It’s clear that the other side is more than willing to transcend normal politics to have power over us — and that means EVERY SINGLE ONE of us MUST vote in November.

Democrats Die Again on the Wrong Hill

There seems to be no strategy (there ISN’T) other than Trump rage, and despite going nuclear on a man's life, they just can't win. theamericanconservative.com/articles/democ…
The soiled Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process put Democratic strategy for the 2018 midterms in plain view. The question is: will what hasn’t worked to date do any better for the Dems a month from now?
This week’s FBI investigation was never going to turn up any new information. Apart from liberal Twitter, who are all apparently trauma memory experts (last week they were scholars of perjury law), most normal people have a hard time conjuring details from long ago.

Trump stays on task as Democratic panic escalates m.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/oct/…
“...worst of all for Democrats is the fact that the midterm elections are now 29 days off. That’s just 696 hours away, using simple math. Democratic panic is escalating, even as some surprising positive news coverage about Mr. Trump emerges from unlikely sources...”
... such as an accounting of Mr. Trump’s “winning streak” from CNN:

“Trump may have never had a better time being President.”

Jamie Lee Curtis Links (Fictional) Stalking By Knife-Wielding Psycho to Kavanaugh bit.ly/2zYy3Sw
Appearing on The View, Curtis said the heroine of Halloween is a woman who suffered “trauma at 17, like Ford when she was 17.” Trying to make the connection, the actress touted the topicality of the new Halloween: “It’s actually about something. The movie is about trauma.”
She clarified, “Because, what happened to Laurie Strode when she was 17 — it is fiction. I want everyone to understand that I’m not saying that this happened to me.”

No, the Trump administration never predicted 7 degrees of global warming washex.am/2CyjSpF
Last Friday, the @washingtonpost printed a fake news whopper: “ Trump administration sees a 7-degree rise in global temperatures by 2100.”
Within the blink of an eye, several other media outlets ran the story, spreading a false story like a forest fire. The New York Post, for example, published an article titled, “ Trump administration says climate change will make Earth a living hell by 2020.”

Looking forward to your tweet ‘eloquently’ telling GOP/GOP voters “FUCK. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL.” I cheer a sane GOP protecting presumption of innocence that Dems disdain. Dems are the party of angry, violent, bullying, deranged psycho mobs #ItCanHappenToYou
The blatant hypocrisy of Dems who say #BelieveAllWomen don’t believe @KeithEllison’s accuser, @RepKihuen ‘s accuser, @BobMenendezNJ sex with underage girls, and more. They want Dems elected no matter what-and in doing so, they say “Screw #MeToo
