Brett Kavanaugh

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.

Do You Trust Kavanaugh’s Inquisitors With Our Future?

David Catron, The American Spectator

Democrats don’t really seem very partial to actual justice as codified in the Constitution as well as millennia of tradition and common law. The presumption of innocence, to coin a phrase, is the golden thread of English and American common law. And it applies to the Public Square as well as the courts. You can’t have genuine justice without it, and you can’t privilege females over males in its application. That’s what the Democrats are willing to do for the sake of power, and it’s precisely why they aren’t fit to govern.

Can We Trust the FBI?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

This is the stuff of totalitarian cultures. If things were different, we could applaud an investigation into Judge Kavanaugh's activities and, I would imagine, so would he.  It would clear his name once and for all and he could go on with his life.  But no one would suggest an investigation by the NKVD or the Stasi would be fair.  What can we say about the FBI, given what we already know? Remember -- sear into your brain -- what happened and vote accordingly in November.

The vanished vestiges of civility

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Surely, traumatic incidents burn more deeply. But this is a person who could not even answer who is paying her legal bills. And we are expected to trust her precise memory from 36 years ago and use that memory to utterly destroy a man who has spent his entire adult life building an impressive career and impeccable reputation? At the very, very, very least, we should summon the spirit of the late Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, who famously invoked Scottish Law to find impeachment charges against ex-President Bill Clinton “not proven.” Only this time, the verdict would actually fit.

Media Sink To New Lows In Their Anti-Kavanaugh Smear Campaign

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

It is apparently impossible for our media to realize that promulgating nothing more than decades-old hearsay with precisely no corroborating evidence is unbecoming and cruel. It is beyond obvious that the media are willing to throw out any and all standards to defeat Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. It is absolutely soul-crushing and heartbreaking to realize that they are willing to destroy him as a husband and father to achieve that goal. Have they any decency?

The Reason For The Public Torture Of Brett Kavanaugh

The new radical Left Democrats are punishing Brett Kavanaugh for his beliefs and would like to see his nomination defeated, but what they’d like to do even more is make sure that no one who shares Brett Kavanaugh’s Christian and constitutional conservative values ever again lets their name be put forward for an appointment to the Supreme Court.

Two Women Unravel Christine Blasey Ford’s Story

In this long article stiching together the tweets of Denise McAllister, a woman who knew Christine Blasey Ford in college and Prof. Margot Cleveland, who has carefully unravelled the timeline of her claims, the holes in Blasey Ford's story are revealed in stark detail.

Democrats abused Ford (and Kavanaugh)

Editors, Washington Examiner

These left-wing political hacks purposefully victimized Kavanaugh, concealing Ford’s allegation from everyone, even in closed sessions with Kavanaugh, and then disclosing it as late as possible in the hope that it could delay or prevent a good man's confirmation. Democrats didn't want to help their star witness, they only wanted to use her. They didn't want to get to the bottom of her accusations, they just wanted to keep a Supreme Court seat vacant for two years so a Democratic president could fill it after defeating President Trump. This isn't our speculation. It's what Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, has admitted publicly.

Whatever happened to the old Dianne Feinstein?

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

California’s so-called jungle election system has pitted Kevin de Leon as the challenger against Mrs. Feinstein in the Nov. 6 general election. This excuses Mrs. Feinstein for saying the silly things, because it’s in no violation of the first rule of politics that (almost) anything goes. Politicians generally figure that they’ll be dead for a long time, so enjoy life now. For the senator at 85, it’s now or never. This excuses the new Dianne Feinstein for renouncing the original (and better) Dianne Feinstein. The original might not recognize the new, and that’s sad for all of us.

Should You Believe All Accusers?

Ben Shapiro, CNS News

The question isn't whether one ought to believe "survivors" — of course one should. The question is whether everyone who alleges sexual abuse is, in fact, a survivor of sexual abuse. Not all accusers are automatically survivors. It's our job to determine whether each individual accusation merits belief. And if the answer is no, that isn't an indicator of sexism. Sometimes it's an indicator than an allegation just doesn't have enough support.
