This isn’t about Brett Kavanaugh's abstract qualifications; his intellect, his knowledge of the law and the quality of his judicial product. This is a religious war over abortion and it is time to recognize Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations for what they are – the Far Left’s first female suicide bombing.

For all those tired of déjà vu in American government it’s time to band together to force changes. The freak show surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has tarnished the reputations of our political institutions. Isn’t it time to say we’re not going to sit by and take it any longer?

Every step of land in America had something from the past occur on it. Proponents of Heritage Areas are using our great love of history as an emotional sledgehammer to impose a massive federal pork barrel scheme that enriches the pockets of private advocacy groups by helping to impose draconian controls over the dreams of average American homeowners.

Does any of the wild partying and promiscuity documented in the hidden Holton Arms yearbooks excuse a sexual assault, as alleged by Dr. Blasey Ford? Of course not, but what it does do is to put into context the allegations of a privileged, and perhaps troubled young woman, whose relationship with alcohol casts a great deal of doubt on her memory and her claims of powerlessness.

President Trump is fortunate to have a strong “bench” full of Republican political players he can call on in times of need. The GOP “fantasy team” includes not only a dream starting lineup but also capable backups who contribute. The Democrats? They’re all hopeless benchwarmers.

The Trump administration appears to share the belief of prior administrations that it can transform the Middle East in America’s image. But Washington’s record in the Middle East is catastrophic. It is time to bring home America’s troops.

Cable TV overtook the broadcast TV networks as the main source of political and campaign news after 2000—and Fox News dominated cable TV.  (Excerpt 34 of 45 from America’s Right Turn.)

In handling the Kavanaugh confirmation Chairman Chuck Grassley has displayed an incisive strategic mind at work, allowing the Democrats to, not only overplay their hands politically, but to have two of their presidential aspirants implode on national TV.

America is on fire because of Democrats’ zeal to trash the reputations of good people just to preserve judge-made “rights” like abortion. The United States was supposed to be a government of laws, not fools. That’s impossible to accomplish in today’s unhinged political environment.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
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.

    Anyone who believes that the way to punish RINOs is to give Congress back to the Democrats needs to stop skipping her medication. The sane strategy for getting rid of weak Republicans is to replace them with strong Republicans. What we are seeing now is nothing compared to the crimes against democracy the Democrats will commit if they capture a majority in either house of Congress. The only way to stop them is show up at the polls in November and crush them like the insects they are.

    The endless tap dance about how and when Ford should testify - and the absolutely astonishing demand that Kavanaugh should testify first, before his accuser, turning the rule of law on its head - completes this picture of the #MeToo movement gone berserk.  Genuine victims of abuse will, of course, suffer as people become increasingly fed up with this charade. Did Feinstein, Schumer et al think of that in their zeal to get Kavanaugh?  If he does go down, it will be a Pyrrhic victory anyway.

  • John Fund, National Review

    Spare us the hyper-moralizing speeches, the condemnation of half the human species simply because they are male, and the insistence that women who say they’ve suffered sexual assault must automatically be believed. Senator Mazie Hirono today poses as a brave feminist cultural warrior, but when it really counted in her own backyard in Hawaii, she was AWOL. The same holds true when Bill Clinton’s predations were in the news in the late 1990s.

    Anita Hill's feminist fictions have been made into glowing liberal TV movies by Showtime and HBO. The media eagerly forwarded Hill's latest statement: "I have seen firsthand what happens when such a process is weaponized against an accuser, and no one should have to endure that again." To them, the "truth" always has a liberal bias. These guardians of "facts" cannot imagine that the accusers of Thomas and Kavanaugh have been "weaponized" by liberals to spread lies about offenses that never happened.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    The 25th Amendment was not ratified as an end-run around the required votes for impeachment and removal, but rather as a safeguard of the executive capacity in cases such as presidential assassination attempts or grave physical or mental illnesses. Even a president’s grave moral turpitude or the commission of high crimes, the likes of which would seemingly justify impeachment, could never justify invocation of the 25th Amendment. Even if the president clearly and indisputably committed treason on national television, the 25th Amendment would not be the remedy.

  • Charles Hurt, Washington Times

    When President Trump talks about making America “great” again, he is talking about returning to the ideals of a United States of America governed by the people. Not a cabal of unelected, power-drunk swamp heathens such as yourself. You also owe it to the American voter. Get out of Washington. Travel this country and you will not meet a single voter who says Donald Trump is perfect. But you will find endless streams of voters who say that Donald Trump is the best thing to happen to this country — and Washington in particular — in more than 30 years.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    If Democrats had not abused the process, there would already have been a vote on the nomination. In other words, what Democrats have sought is delay. What Republicans are allowing them to have is delay. The contemptuous stall strategy is being rewarded. there is no reason to have a hearing. The only time it is necessary to hold a hearing is when some potentially dispositive issue is capable of resolution. Ford’s allegation is not capable of resolution. It is inevitably destined for an inconclusive outcome, regardless of whether Ford testifies.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    With a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court on the line and allegations of sexual assault rattling the nation’s capital, the truth really is more important now than on many other occasions. The one thing the media's reports and misleading tweets all have in common is that they cast Kavanaugh in a bad light. This is the greatest indicator yet that many in news media are less interested in facts and more interested in achieving a political end. Curious, considering the truth is supposed to be more important now than ever.

    Look. They’ve taken Hollywood. They’ve taken the media. They’ve taken the college campuses. And they’ve messed them all up. We can’t give up burgers, too. My upcoming book contains no burger recipes, because normal people don’t need burger recipes. Normals take meat, throw it on a grill, put it on a bun, put some stuff on it, and eat it like the heroes they are. And liberals? They screw up everything they touch. The arts. Academia. Dinner. So, confirm your normality by rejecting burger mutations. And confirm Kavanaugh, too.

  • Ben Shapiro, CNS News

    What should the standard of proof, or even the standard of believability, be? We should all be able to agree that some standard beyond mere belief is required here — and we should all be willing to hear evidence that implicates our favorite political figures. But if we insist on applying a politically motivated double standard in the name of #MeToo, the support for #MeToo will crumble. Politics should not be allowed to override basic human decency. Yet again, that's what's happening.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, Washington Times

    Will America keep dividing and soon resort to open violence, as happened in 1861? Or will Americans reunite and bind up our wounds, as we did following the upheavals of the 1930s Great Depression or after the protests of the 1960s? The answer lies within each of us. Every day we will either treat each other as fellow Americans, with far more uniting than dividing us, or we will continue on the present path that eventually ends in something like a hate-filled Iraq, Rwanda or the Balkans.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Our share of the global economy is much shrunken from Reagan's time. Our deficit is approaching $1 trillion. Our debt is surging toward 100 percent of GDP. Entitlements are consuming our national wealth. We are committed to containing the two other greatest powers, Russia and China. We are tied down militarily in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Yemen, with the War Party beating the drums for another and larger war — with Iran. And we are sanctioning adversaries and allies for not following our leadership of the West and the world. In looking at America's global commitments, greatly expanded since our Cold War victory, one word come to mind: unsustainable.

  • Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

    The idea is to stock the courts with nothing but progressives and mediocrities willing to roll over for progressives. It is a disgrace that this should happen in this republic, and in connection with the courts, which are not supposed to be political forces, but which have been converted into an uber-political institution that progressives are desperate to control. The short-term goal is to delay Kavanaugh’s nomination. Democrats should not be allowed to get away with it. No more delay. It only rewards the mugging and encourages more of it.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    Judge Kavanaugh has, of course, accepted the invitation and is anxious to deny under oath that he has ever done anything resembling the behavior described in Ford’s lurid tale. If his accuser fails to meet the deadline, or Feinstein continues to withhold the letter that launched this farce, the Monday hearing will be canceled and the Judiciary Committee will hold a vote the next day. Let the Democrats continue to bray. It’s time to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

  • David Harsanyi, The Federalist

    A simple accusation is, it appears, all that Democrats need to presume someone guilty. Since Kavanaugh has already been smeared as a sexual predator by Democrats, what’s the purpose of an investigation—other than a transparent attempt at delaying the vote? Now, perhaps circumstances change if Ford shows up on Monday and offers new evidence or some other compelling information. If she doesn’t, though, there is no reason for Republicans to delay a vote.
