What Tip O’Neill really meant was that focusing on local issues is what wins elections for Democrats, because they can’t campaign on their state and national agendas of raising taxes, opening the borders, enabling sanctuary cities, giving benefits to illegal aliens, cutting national defense and nationalizing health care and anything else they can get their hands on.

Democrats, by their tactics in opposing Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, have gone way beyond what has been, even for them, considered to be the base level of savagery and ruthlessness established in the Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas hearings. After this, there is nothing left but violence and chaos to enforce their will upon a country that rejected them at the ballot box.

The ordeal Democrats are forcing Judge Brett Kavanaugh to endure reveals the utterly soulless character of today’s political opposition. When there’s a party openly advocating socialism over adherence to the Constitution only bad things happen. We’re all witnessing it right now.

Update: Democrats have refused to participate in a conference call with Judge Kavanaugh scheduled for today, forcing the Committee to postpone hearing from Judge Kavanaugh and his accuser until Monday, Sept. 25.  Anyone who thinks the next Democratic administration will be a benign era in American history should take a good look at what is happening to Brett Kavanaugh and recognize that the new Far Left Democratic Party’s impulse for power recognizes no limits in its ruthlessness. We urge CHQ readers to use the call list in this article to demand the prompt confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

Most Americans were conservative; TV news very liberal.  That spelled opportunity for an entrepreneur like Rupert Murdoch.  (Excerpt 33 of 45 from America’s Right Turn.)

You can’t blame dreamers for believing it’s still possible for Democrats and Republicans to work together to solve America’s pressing problems, but the immature antics of one party indicates otherwise. Politics isn’t exactly a collegial undertaking any longer – it’s more like Bloodsport.

It is not surprising to us that since July Democrats have been sitting on these uncorroborated allegations of sexual misconduct during Judge Brett Kavanaugh's high school years. Democrats tried the much the same kind of last minute "high-tech lynching" to derail Justice Clarence Thomas' nomination.

As we have often said, no voter in their right mind – and these polls show the conservative voters the GOP needs to win are more attuned than ever – is going to vote to continue Paul Ryan’s legacy of betrayals, lies and failures.

Time will tell whether anything comes from Democrats’ latest desperate attempt to defeat Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. Republicans have it within their power to confirm him before the Supreme Court term begins next month; will they ignore the noise and just get it done?

Here is our Kavanaugh confirmation phone list, we urge CHQ readers and friends to start with the four Republicans who need shoring up. RESPECTFULLY urge them to vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. After those four phone calls we urge you to call the Democrats who have yet to voice a position on Kavanaugh’s confirmation. See the article for phone lists and details.

While our institutes of higher learning preach, “question authority”, they don’t actually teach questioning anything but Western Culture and its values. No longer do students debate tough issues; no one wants to take the side of the non-politically correct.

America’s culture war will rage on as long as there are liberals supplying ammunition for both sides’ rhetorical weapons. Caught in the middle are average citizens who see the melee and wonder what happened to the good ‘ol days when men were men and women loved them for it.

    America has very different traditions from Russia or China. We are supposed to be immune to totalitarian government because of the magnificent democratic principles enshrined by our founders. But are we? Could it come in through the back door under the banner of people who say and even think they are doing the opposite, who think the other side is the fascist side? Or is it as simple as the fact that to some, the ends still justify the means, even though we have seen on multiple occasions the mass murder that leads to?

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    The dinosaurs of the party desperately seek relevance by sounding crazier than the new unhinged base that disrupts Senate hearings, loudly pronounces a new socialist future, and envisions octogenarian Maxine Waters as more the future of the party than is septuagenarian Nancy Pelosi. All that we can say about this new progressivism is the same as what we can say about the cult of sanctuary cities, ensuring universal Medicare for all, and the idea of abolishing ICE: It operates outside the realm of reason and truth as it descends into collective madness.

  • Curt Levey, Fox News

    Failing to deliver might be a risk worth taking for Senate Democrats if they had a reasonable chance of preventing what they say they most fear – the replacement of Justice Anthony Kennedy with a solid conservative. Headlines suggest that if Democrats can delay confirmation then win control of the Senate on November 6, that goal could be realized. However, a close analysis of the ways in which the new Democratic strategy could play out says otherwise.

  • Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

    Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, is doing the right thing, arranging for the committee to hear out Mrs. Ford and to hear Judge Kavanaugh’s rebuttal. If the Democrats plead for more time, they’ll reveal their true game. How much time would hardworking senators need? Christine Blasey Ford may have been led to believe she could merely accuse and the Democrats would take care of the rest. But that’s not how it works. She may have a September Surprise coming herself.

  • Michael Goodwin, New York Post

    Donald Trump, to 63 million Americans, was the antidote to both parties. Warts and all, he still is. Trump has created many of the dynamics that make him a lone ranger. He doesn’t always return loyalty and trusts no one as much as his own gut. Given his druthers, he would like to govern as a bipartisan president and cut deals like a Lyndon Johnson. Maybe in the next life. In this one, Trump is the only defense against the left’s smash and smear agenda. It’s either him or the deluge.

  • William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

    By all means let’s hear what Ms. Ford has to say. But let us hope Ms. Collins insists it not be at the expense of fairness to Judge Kavanaugh. Because right now the effort to put off his confirmation votes seems aimed at establishing an odious, new post-hearing precedent, whereby a single, inconclusive and uncorroborated #MeToo accusation can upend all Senate norms and leave a man with an otherwise sterling reputation twisting in the wind.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

    Palpable here is the desperation of the left to derail Kavanaugh, lest his elevation to the high court imperil their agenda and the social revolution that the Warren Court and its progeny have been able to impose upon the nation. If Kavanaugh is elevated, the judicial dictatorship of decades past, going back to the salad days of Earl Warren, William Brennan, Hugo Black and "Wild Bill" Douglas, will have reached its end. A new era will have begun. That is what is at stake.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    Is there a single person of any political persuasion who would vouch for everything he or she did in high school? Nevertheless, we live in a time of consummate selfishness and evil.  Almost nothing is done with clean hands or pure motivation. Few, if anyone, think about others -- in this case even about their very young and impressionable sisters. Christine Blasey Ford is a poster woman for the worst, most narcissistic end of the #MeToo movement.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    Luckily, the Republicans are getting woke to the okey-done, and recognize this as a Hail Satan play by Democrats who realize that the Brett Kavanaugh Express is rolling toward the confirmation station. Brett Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed. And when he is a justice on the Supreme Court, I hope he remembers what these people did to him. I hope he gives them the same kind of lesson in the power of payback that Clarence Thomas has delivered for nearly three decades.

  • Roger Kimball, The Spectator

    Everything we know about Kavanaugh — and we know a lot — suggests that he is telling the truth. Is there a more honourable, charitable, and public-spirited public servant padding about Washington today? If there is, I do not know him. Kavanaugh has been through six — count ’em — FBI background investigations and none turned up this allegation. I suspect that, whatever traumas Ford claims to have experienced, none has damaged a rich fantasy life.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    This questioning shouldn’t be in public, which would recreate the shameful circus of the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill hearings, which is what Democrats want, of course. It should be behind closed doors with no television cameras. The likes of Feinstein and Schumer, and Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, have shown how happy they are to smear and impugn Kavanaugh dishonestly for political points. Major media have shown themselves too credulous or keen on these theatrics.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    One of the many wonderful and spectacular things about the Trump presidency is how the mere existence of Mr. Trump in the White House causes his most rabid enemies to reflexively reveal themselves. They become their truest, most disgusting selves. So, when Hurricane Florence began gathering in the Atlantic Ocean, the press dispatched an army of reporters-turned-activists to the Carolinas so they could blame the storm on Mr. Trump, against a dramatic backdrop of staggering winds and ferocious storm waters.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    This event happened 36 years ago among adolescents. The victim and the villain were under the influence of alcohol and the former can’t remember half of the details — yet somehow recalls enough to ruin the latter’s career. The latter says it never happened. This is why we have the Sixth Amendment, folks. Anonymous accusers enjoy little credibility and less respect among honorable people. These are characteristics they share with Democrats and journalists. The Senate should confirm Kavanaugh next week.

  • Michael Ledeen, PJ Media

    Funny world. So many things are backwards. We have apparently hard evidence of Chinese espionage in the office of the number one senator on the Senate Intelligence Committee—the FBI told her about it five years ago, and she did nothing (nor did the bureau)—but nobody seems concerned. Meanwhile, there is no evidence of any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, yet half the world constantly frets about “it.” Feinstein is also part of the Russian story.

  • John Fund, National Review

    Even if Brett Kavanaugh takes his seat on the Supreme Court, liberals will have extracted a pound of flesh. Just as with the Florida recount of 2000 and the Trump election of 2016, any confirmation will be branded as suspect and accomplished only through brutish tactics and the wholesale disregard for the truth. The effort to sink Kavanaugh is not just a naked attempt to change a confirmation vote but to forever brand him as illegitimate.
