Brett Kavanaugh

Will No One Rid Us Of This Turbulent Flake?

We urge Senator McConnell to follow through on his commitment to confirm all remaining judicial nominees and to use whatever tactics are necessary to get those judges confirmed, even if it means sidelining Sen. Jeff Flake and putting the heat on any other recalcitrant members of the Senate’s Republican Conference.

Where is Brett Kavanaugh’s apology?

Katie Pavlich, The Hill

Democratic  Sens. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) and others entered the false claims into the Congressional Record. They berated Kavanaugh in front of the country as a liar and a sexual predator. Upon his confirmation, they vowed to impeach him should Democrats ever regain control of the Senate. Based on what we know now, it’s clearer than ever Democrats owe Kavanaugh, his family and the country an apology for the smears they proliferated. It’s just too bad one will never come.

As world moves on, the Brett Kavanaugh fight continues

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley clearly believes he and the committee were being jerked around. He is not happy about it. And he is determined to ensure that it not happen again. Given what happened with Kavanaugh, it seems reasonable to predict that if President Trump has another Supreme Court opening, the opposition will throw everything it has at the nominee. The Judiciary Committee is prepared to handle accusations backed by evidence. But Grassley wants to make sure everybody knows it will not take part in another circus.

The Democrats' pro-woman fraud

Tammy Bruce, Washington Times

The legacy media carried the fraud that Justice Kavanaugh was a gang rapist. Day and night, that was all the U.S. and the world heard. Yet they, too, are silent. Wouldn’t having a rape mastermind on the Supreme Court require more outrage and more investigation? But no, everyone has run for the hills, which tells us plenty. This silence and abandonment make clear that what we were all subjected to was a political stunt. The Democrats knew what they were doing, they did not care about the impact on women overall, and they still don’t. And that is the largest fraud facing the American people: The left is not only not champions for women, they use us like cannon fodder, and need our lives to get worse.

Fight The Mean-Spirited Democrat Attack On Justice Clarence Thomas

If the Kavanaugh hearings were one brief window into the way the radical violence-prone Democrats operate, their latest campaign against constitutional conservative Justice Clarence Thomas shows just how mean-spirited they are every day. We urge our CHQ readers and friends to fight this mean-spirited attack on Justice Thomas by clicking through this link to sign Mr. Lamar Bowman’s petition in support of Justice Thomas.

The Origins of Progressive Agony

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The catastrophic yet suicidal loss in the 2016 election and the disappointment over the Obama presidency radicalized Democrats. A combative Trump himself certainly enraged them, on a variety of political, social, and cultural levels. When Democrats lost, they realized that they still lived in a Republic and not a volatile Athenian democracy — and found this also hard to take. More exasperating still was the loss of the Supreme Court, the last bastion of elite brilliance and superior morality that might yet save America from the prejudices and ignorance of the irredeemables, deplorables, clingers, and crazies.

Trump’s Kavanaugh Apology Showed True Presidential Leadership

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

It is not particularly virtuous to apologize to Kavanaugh for the attempt to destroy his life so much as the bare minimum required of decent people. In a sea of horrific behavior, Trump showed decency by apologizing on behalf of Americans. Saying true and obvious things isn’t courageous unless they’re said in the face of a threatening mob who doesn’t permit deviation from the rigorously enforced consensus. The last month was an embarrassment to Americans who care about rule of law and the presumption of innocence.

The Senate Is an 'Unfixable Crime Against Democracy'?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Liberals claimed that there are now four Supreme Court justices appointed by Republican presidents who didn't win the popular vote. Those geniuses forgot that George W. Bush nominated two justices after he won the popular vote in 2004. It's obvious that Friday night felt a lot like election night 2016 to liberals. What's so upsetting to them is that the liberal media can't successfully engage in mind control and run the country by chanting their baloney into the television set. MSNBC just hates that democracy in America doesn't have enough of a liberal bias.

Kavanaugh Casualties

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

When the Christine Ford saga finally ended, a lot of truth had distilled out, along with the evaporation of prior pretensions and misconceptions. If there was any stereotypical lesson to be had, it was that many on the senatorial panel and the legions of advisers and lawyers on the Ford Team, as well as Ford herself, by their class, education, and comportment, increasingly seem quite different, quite more privileged, and quite more self-absorbed than most average Americans of all backgrounds who have little sympathy for the psychodramas of a pampered and professional class.

Kavanaugh Killed the ‘Never Trump’ Movement

Matt K. Lewis, Daily Beast

Long on life-support, the Never Trump “resistance” movement within the Republican Party was finished off by the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight. The death of the Never Trump movement was probably inevitable. It never had a leader or a proactive vision. It turns out that shared dislike for Donald Trump does not a political cause make. The kind of people who are contrarian enough to stand up to their own party’s nominee were, perhaps, not likely to agree on anything. For some reason, things keep falling into place for Trump. Sometimes, it’s better to be lucky than good.

The Democrats’ Idea Of Civility

“In their quest for power, the radical Democrats have turned into an angry mob,” President Trump said at a recent rally. We can’t say that Rep. Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton and Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker constitute a “mob,” but they certainly prove the point the President made at Monday’s rally.

Where’s John Brown When We Need Him?

Today, peaceful “normal” Americans find themselves in much the same position as Free-Soil settlers found themselves in Kansas in the years 1856 to 1858: Democrats are attacking us in our homes and businesses, we are harried and assaulted and government officials seem powerless to defend us or in some cases are even leading the attacks.

The Democrats’ Little Bighorn

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

So, what does 2019 look like, if Democrats capture the House? Speaker Nancy Pelosi. A House Judiciary Committee headed by New York's Jerrold Nadler who is already howling for impeachment hearings on both Kavanaugh and Trump. And, by spring, a host of presidential candidates, none of whom looks terribly formidable, led by Cory ("I am Spartacus") Booker, trooping through Iowa and New Hampshire, trashing President Trump (and each other), and offering themselves as the answer to America's problems. Bring it on!

We'll Remember In November: This Kavanaugh Witch Hunt Is Radicalizing Us Normals

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We are not going to forget what happened here. And this is going to have a lasting impact, but not one the Democrats are going to like. As my friend, the fabulous Larry O'Connor, observes, Andrew Brietbart was radicalized by the Clarence Thomas hearings and the manifest injustice that this brave man endured at the hands of lying, hypocritical Democrats like noted aquatic Oldsmobile operator Ted Glug Glug Vroom Vroom Kennedy. Hey Dems, we’re woke, and your go-to tactic of destroying our people? Broke. See ya next month.

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.
