I want you to think back for a minute to when Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was getting confirmed. Do you remember that? He got almost all the way through the confirmation process, and then, out of nowhere, there is this lady named Anita Hill who had claimed that he had sex with her, did lewd stuff with pubic hair and Coke cans. Do you remember that? There was no evidence, but it’s where “We have to investigate it because of the ‘seriousness of the charge'” came from.
It didn’t work then, but that doesn’t mean that the Democrats aren’t going to try it out today.
Diane Feinstein, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and is up for re-election in a state where her own party decided not to endorse her in the primary, decided she had to do SOMETHING to get this confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh at least slowed down until the elections in November. So she said that there was a woman at Stanford University that came to her and said she wanted to stay anonymous, and didn’t want this to be investigated further, but Di Fi decided that the seriousness of the charge was so great that she HAD to come forward and give the information to the FBI to investigate.
That information was that while in HIGH SCHOOL, Brett Kavanaugh made sexual advances to this woman. He may have even groped her. Wow. And the FBI missed that when they vetted him?
Look, there is only one reason for this to come to light now. First of all, Feinstein knew of this in July. Why did she wait until now to have it foisted on us? Because it was their ace in the hole. Democrats can’t vote for Kavanaugh while this is out there, and it may be enough to sway Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski into wanting to wait. IF the Dems’ were to win the Senate in the November elections, then they could delay this confirmation indefinitely and tell Donald Trump to choose someone else. THAT is the reason this is being used now.
The Republicans need to band together and stick to their guns…ALL of them. And they need to confirm Kavanaugh. They guy answered 30 hours of questions during his hearing, another 1,200 plus questions the Democrats sent him afterwards, he’s met with 65 Senators (including Feinstein), and not even the FBI rectal exam has found anything in his past to stop this from going forward. It’s a desperate move by a desperate party.
And it should weigh in on the election. If a party is this desperate to get it’s own way, they’re going to be desperate enough once in power to force anything they want through Congress and the White House. They’ll stop at nothing to feed their power trip.
When I look at the Democrat candidates around the country, I have to laugh. They aren’t politicians. They are Saul Alinsky wannabes, and a bunch of people that have been living in their parent’s basement (I’m looking at YOU Kyrsten Sinema!). It’s absolutely laughable to think these people are capable of governing anything. Hell, they couldn’t even put on a neighborhood show in their parent’s basement!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
