Democrats

Are we on the verge of civil war?

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.

Bombshell: Christine Blasey Ford’s Hidden High School Social Life

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If politics were fantasy football, Democrats would all be benchwarmers

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.

It’s a Set-up

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.

Christine Blasey Ford Won’t Take ‘Yes’ for an Answer

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.

The Steady Hand Of Chairman Chuck Grassley

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Democrat lynch mob shows we have a government of fools, not laws

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.

Democrats Go Full Stalin on Kavanaugh and Declassification

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

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?

The Descent into Progressive Madness

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.

Kavanaugh confirmation: Four ways Democrats' plan to derail nomination could backfire

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.

The march of the September Surprises

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.

I Call BS On Tip O’Neill's Claim 'All Politics Is Local'

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 Have Nothing Left But Violence And Chaos To Defeat Brett Kavanaugh

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why Democrats don’t mind saying the ‘s-word’ in polite company

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.

The Late Hit on Judge Kavanaugh

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.

With Christine Blasey Ford, the Democrats have descended to new lows in politicising justice

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.

Democrats Ruthlessly Destroy Brett Kavanaugh

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In today’s politics, ‘bipartisanship’ is for sadly-naïve wusses

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.

A High-Tech Lynching Redux

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.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: What skeleton will desperate Dems dig up next to stop Kavanaugh?

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?
