Mazie Hirono

The Big Lie That Barr Lied

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Democrats are unnerved. Attorney General Barr is pursuing an inquiry into the Obama administration’s decision to conduct a foreign counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign. The time is now, they figure, to reprise the Ken Starr treatment: the ad hominem withering of an accomplished, highly capable official — in this instance, one who is daring to press questions that would have been answered two years ago if an incumbent Republican administration had spied on — er, monitored — a Democratic presidential campaign.

Democrats Are Just Too Darned Smart

David Catron, The American Spectator

Sen. Mazie Hirono's posturing, along with the antics of her accomplices, almost certainly killed the 2018 reelection bids of four Democrat senators who voted against Kavanaugh. And it helped enlarge the GOP majority in the Senate to 53-47. That means a lot of conservative judges will be confirmed during the next two years — and perhaps another Supreme Court justice. Finally, if her fellow brainiacs in the House impeach President Trump, she has helped to kill any chance that he’ll be convicted. Smart? Well, it’s just too complicated to explain to mere voters.

Senator Hirono Didn’t Always Tell Men to ‘Shut Up’ and Believe Accusers

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.
