Brett Kavanaugh

A savage, frothing Left has united Republicans around Trump

Noemie Emery, Washington Examiner

Democrats en masse turned their backs on the presumption of innocence, willing to wreck one man’s life over one allegation that never seemed grounded in fact. Everything the Never Trumpers had feared was about to take place was indeed coming at them, but not from Trump. It was coming from the people who claimed that they were his opponents. This has changed the Never Trumpers’ ideas about who was their enemy. How long they can hold to this formulation depends on the Left, and on him.

One Ford Narrative Too Many

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

Taken as a whole, Ford’s problem was not just that she couldn’t remember key details, but that she remembered all sorts of different things depending on when and to whom she related the latest narrative. More incriminatingly, her narratives seemed to change key facts about the number and sex of apparent partygoers and the vague date and general area of the assault in ways that might enhance her latest iteration of the story. What destroys credibility is not just a lack of memory, but more so the presence of too many memories that are selective, self-serving, and mutually contradictory.

New Poll: Kavanaugh Is Only the First Victim of Democrat Smear Campaigns

President Trump and a defiant Judge Kavanaugh refused to cave in to the pressure of Democrat politicians, the media, and left-wing mobs.  Even though the tactic failed, most conservatives expect the Left to use smear campaigns against future Trump appointments, according to a new poll by FedUp PAC.

The Party of Screaming Women

Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator

The Democrats’ failure to stop Kavanaugh produced scenes of shrieking women who mobbed the Capitol on Saturday. After the Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh, the deranged horde descended on the Supreme Court building, where Daily Wire reporter Emily Zanotti witnessed their final paroxysm of impotent rage. The women “broke through a police line and barged to the Court’s chamber, where they proceeded to wail, gnash teeth, and pound at the doors while Kavanaugh was being sworn in inside.” The hysterical protesters “tried desperately to claw their way” through the heavy locked doors.

Brett Kavanaugh Should Sue Christine Blasey Ford And The WaPo For Defamation

Daniel Oliver, The Federalist

Could the next Senate confirmation hearing of a Supreme Court nominee be worse than the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing? Who would have thought that a hearing could be worse than Chappaquiddick Teddy Kennedy’s attack on Judge Bork, or the “high tech lynching” of Clarence Thomas? Here is what ordinary Americans have to understand: It can always get worse, and it will, until we change the culture. Until then, there’s a Ford in all our futures.

Susan Collins Saved the Senate (For Now)

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Susan Collins saved the Senate, at least for now, with her superb, well-reasoned speech explaining her support for Brett Kavanaugh Friday. The left in our country has gone mad, as if they were a collective of lobotomized lemmings. Let's hope they don't take us all over the cliff with them. Or get somebody or somebodies killed. But for now we have a reprieve in the fine speech of Susan Collins and the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh.

The Left Criminalizes Politics by Weaponizing Investigations

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The Left is destroying investigative norms. If we do not insist on these norms and defend them, then investigations become a political weapon from which only the Left will be spared. The moral of the story: When politics is involved, we can no longer presume that investigations are being sought and will be conducted in good faith. We should not agree to them in the absence of enforceable norms that limit scope, protect privacy, and ensure that decent people of all ideological persuasions are not discouraged from participating in the political life of a free, pluralistic society.

OK, Now That Kavanaugh Has Been Confirmed…

Conservatives have a two-step process to achieve a conservative Congress: First, keep the House and expand our numbers in the Senate. Second, put pressure on the Republican House majority to elect Jim Jordan Speaker to keep their promises on the Trump agenda going into 2020.

Susan Collins: The Old Republican Establishment’s Finest Hour

Maine’s Senator Susan Collins, is the last of the old-fashioned Northeast establishment Republicans to serve in high public office. We conservatives often disagree with Senator Collins, and we will continue to do so, but one thing we can agree on is that stability, predictability, reliance and fairness are still virtues worthy of admiration and respect during our disagreements.

So, What Are The Rules Anyway?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

I think there actually are no rules anymore. I think the elite is so terrified it is losing its power that it is tossing out the foundations of the society it is supposed to organize and manage, that is, the rules. I think our elite actually does not believe in rules, that their attempts at enforcing the rules are merely a grift designed to jam up Normals and provide a way to keep them in line.

Kavanaugh FBI Report: No Hint Of Misconduct

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senators to urge Judge Kavanaugh’s prompt confirmation, starting with four Republicans who need shoring up. RESPECTFULLY urge them to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh:  Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska (202-224-6665) and Susan Collins of Maine (202-224-2523), Jeff Flake of Arizona (202-224-4521) and Ben Sasse of Nebraska (202-224-4224).

The Establishment Media’s Despicable Attempt To Destroy Brett Kavanaugh

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer told Fox News on Wednesday that Kavanaugh isn’t getting a fair shake because most members of the mainstream media “want the Republicans to lose,” and reaction to the FBI probe isn't exactly proving him wrong.

The Kavanaugh Allegations Are Psychological Terrorism, And It’s Time They End

James Simpson, The Federalist

Democrats will continue to use these tactics until the American people scream “Enough!” — because they are effective. The real goal is psychological terrorism—that is, engaging in a scorched-earth effort to destroy the target, and in so doing intimidating anyone willing to enter public service, or even just support a public figure that does not parrot the politically correct line. Such excommunication has real consequences on reputations, jobs, relationships, even survival. The real goal is to threaten the rest of us into silence.

It's All Gone: The Democrats' Dead Ideals

Roger Kimball, PJ Media

It is not yet clear what the snarling, incontinent attacks on Brett Kavanaugh will mean for him and his family. Early indications are not encouraging. The travesty that was the smear campaign against Brett Kavanaugh is disintegrating. He will be confirmed, but the mephitic stench of the attack against him and the rule of law will linger. I wonder if the Democrats will remember it when the tallies come in on November 6 and their vaunted blue wave turns out to be a moist, impotent trickle.

Join Us Today In A Day Of Prayer For Judge Brett Kavanaugh And Family

As part of this national day of prayer for Judge Kavanaugh and his family we offer the following prayers and Bible verses as inspiration to assist you in helping to pray Brett Kavanaugh and his family through this ordeal and to a successful confirmation vote.

The judge versus the vigilante

Daniel Oliver, Washington Times

Christine Blasey Ford’s “high” motives justify her conduct. She has damaged her victim, Judge Kavanaugh, by, inter alia, telling her story to The Washington Post, and he is entitled to redress. Normally, a public figure who sues for libel or slander must show actual malice. But accusing someone of a crime 36 years after it allegedly happened without a shred of corroborating evidence, and not even verified by people the victim named as witnesses, should be deemed constructive malice. Vigilante justice is not justice.

New Poll: Conservatives Say Senate Should Be Voting on Kavanaugh

Conservatives believe that Senate Republicans should have proceeded to vote on and confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court this week, rather than surrendering to Democrat demands for another delay in the process, according to a poll by FedUp PAC.

A Dress Rehearsal for Impeachment

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

For what is being done to Kavanaugh is, if Democrats take control of Congress in November, a harbinger of what is to come. The assault on Kavanaugh, turning a man known for his integrity into a youthful Jack the Ripper in 10 days, is the playbook for what is planned for Trump. The Kavanaugh lynching is a dress rehearsal for the impeachment of Donald Trump. And the best way to fight impeachment is the way the judge fought on Thursday.

'Appalled,' 'pissed,' and 'frustrated': Female Trump supporters react to Kavanaugh-Ford hearing

Daniel Allott, Washington Examiner

It would be easy to dismiss these women as conservative die-hards and Republican Party loyalists who would support the president’s nominee no matter who it was. But even though all the women are Trump supporters, they’re not all conservatives, or even Trump voters. The group includes a woman who voted for Bernie Sanders, another who voted for Evan McMullin, at least three former Barack Obama voters, and a Muslim immigrant who only recently gained the right to vote. While geographically and ideologically disparate, the women are united in their belief that Kavanaugh is being treated unfairly.

Make Thursday A National Day Of Prayer For Brett Kavanaugh And Family

With Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination coming to the Senate Floor this week we urge all our CHQ readers, friends and followers to join us on Thursday for a special day of prayer for God’s grace to be upon Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his family and that he be brought through this ordeal to a successful confirmation vote.
