Winners and Losers of the Kavanaugh Confirmation


WINNERS
:



The Rule of Law

As Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Sean Hannity Friday, we were at the edge of an abyss, an abyss where smears and the dark art of character assassination were about to become legitimized. Yes, I am a bit uneasy that we came so close to going over that abyss, and even more anxious over the fact that not a single Democrat or member of the establishment media had the moral courage to be the Joseph Welch of their time, to point to their own and ask, “Have you no sense of decency?”

But for now we have a reprieve, and maybe even a little hope that the hangover from this crushing loss might awaken the conscience in just one Democrat or just one adult in the media.



Associate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh’s unforgettable testimony in defense of his own character and future was like the last 20 minutes of Rocky III. One man against all the odds, against the indomitable power of the state, the corrupt power of the media, and then he looked both in the eyes and sneered, “You ain’t so bad.”

His raw testimony was not only a turning point for Kavanaugh when things looked darkest (in the immediate wake of Ford’s testimony), it was a catharsis for those of us who had spent a week being force-fed bitter lies and injustice.

With the previous Sunday night’s triple sucker punch of Ford, Ronan Farrow, and Michael Avenatti, the left pushed all their chips into the middle of the table, certain Kavanaugh would fold.

He didn’t. He called their bluff.

“You will never get me to quit,” he said … and evil gulped.



President Donald J. Trump

Simply put, with this, his second Supreme Court Justice, Trump has secured his presidential legacy. The dream of a 5-4 conservative court is as old as I am, and only Trump could have ensured this, because Trump is the only Republican president who would have ever had the courage to not sacrifice Kavanaugh in the hopes of getting someone else approved before the midterm elections.

President Trump showed enormous character where no one else would have.

Let me repeat that word… Character.


Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)


As agonizing as the suspense of the last 72 hours were, Senate Republicans planned it to perfection….

Put all eyes on Susan Collins, put all the media attention on Susan Collins, and then have this moderate, pro-choice, anti-Trump woman use the national spotlight to deliver a devastating closing argument in favor of Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

It was a brilliant political move, and she was brilliant, and serious, and informed, and above all… American.

That was the most American speech I have ever heard on the Senate floor, a speech based on facts, eternal principles, and basic human decency.

The pressure Collins was under to go the other way, the incentives from the media to be a feminist hero, the threats, the emotional blackmail and bullying… God bless her.


If Brett Kavanaugh was Rocky III, Susan Collins was Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Her speech should be taught in every high school in America.


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)


Since no Democrat or member of the media would do it, Graham did. These four minutes and twenty-six seconds of moral clarity funneled through righteous rage asked the question as forcefully and as clearly as anyone ever could: “Have you no decency, sir?” From that point, there was no going back. The truth had been released.

From then on, Graham was our happy warrior, our Jiminy Cricket dashing through the halls of Congress, popping up on cable news, and spreading the good news about truth and decency in ways that could no longer be denied.

I cannot wait for Graham to become Trump’s next Attorney General.


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)

Never flinched. Never wavered.


Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ)


When Flake threw the wrench in the confirmation gears last week with his call for an FBI investigation devoted to the sexual assault allegations, the nasty “Flake Flakes” headlines flew. Again, I kept my mouth shut. Some part of me believed he had done the right thing. As symbolic as this investigation would be, sometimes symbolism matters.

From the sound of it, Collins probably would have voted “no” without the FBI report.

But look at the country… only 37 percent said they wanted Kavanaugh confirmed, but that number jumps to 60 percent if the FBI investigation comes back clean… as it did.

Flake said he believed it was good for the country to wait a week, and he was 100 percent correct. What’s more, that week was of enormous help to further proving Kavanaugh’s innocence because all the new information came out in his favor, and there was a lot of it.

This left the monstrous media sputtering about virginity and farting, which again seemed to only piss Susan Collins off all the more.

Had Kavanaugh won confirmation last week, it would have looked rigged and unjust to a lot of people.

Jeff Flake was not only right, he did a courageous thing.


Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA)


The hero behind the scenes, the man saddled with the paperwork and Avenatti nonsense, and appeasing McCarthy-ite Democrats in the name of Senate decorum.


But the FBI backed up the work of his committee’s investigators, and the tireless 84-year-old even found time to compose some of the most satisfying takedowns of the whole sordid affair.


The Republican Party


To paraphrase a former First Lady, for the first time in my life I’m proud of the Republican Party — even some Never Trumpers.



The Federalist Society

They found a man so qualified, only a witch hunt could bring him down.

They found a man so decent, the witch hunt failed.


Rachel Mitchell

The Maricopa County sex prosecutor was widely criticized for her cross-examination of Dr. Ford, but she wasn’t there to preen for the cameras or to play Perry Mason. She wanted Ford on record, she asked all the correct and pointed questions, and if you don’t think her devastating, fact-based report didn’t help to sway Susan Collins, you have not been paying attention.


Breitbart News and New Media

Those who wanted facts over hysteria, evidence over innuendo, and truth over emotional blackmail only had one place to turn and that was New Media, specifically online new media.

And yeah, I’m going to toot our own horn, because I am also a consumer of news, and as a voracious consumer of Kavanaugh news, it was Breitbart where I always clicked first. Our team did an extraordinary job, not just of documenting the circus and the politics, but in examining the evidence and cutting through the media bullshit.

Yay, us.



LOSERS:



The Organized Left

When you read about things like the Salem Witch Trials, McCarthyism, and blacklists, you assume we are too well educated, mature, and ashamed of this history to ever repeat it. Well, repeat it we did, and now, after pouring all their hopes, dreams, schemes, hate, rage, integrity, endless hours of work, and piles of money into this cause, these godless fuckers lost… and like the vampires they are, the sunlight of decency has them hissing and howling and writhing in a state of complete shock because their own arrogance and provincialism assured them it could never happen.

Oh, and they’re stupid too, just plain dumb. Anyone with a room temperature IQ understood from the beginning, way back in July, just how important Susan Collins was going to be in this confirmation effort. And what did these idiots do? To prove they were bought and paid for, to prove they had no principles whatsoever, they showed up at their first protest with “Stop Kethledge” and “Stop Hardiman” signs. Collins immediately saw through them and, other than contempt, never gave them another thought.

Eager to double down on their indecency, eager to prove they are anti-science conspiracy theorists immune to facts and evidence, still they protest and rage against the “serial rapist” like a horde of crybabies who have nothing left but to wish that everyone else gets hit by a train. And by doing so, they are forcing Democrats to promise they will impeach Kavanaugh if they win in the midterms — which will only ensure this issue doesn’t lose its potency with Republican voters.

Rage on, you simple-minded swarm of spoiled sheep, your tactics not only no longer work — they backfired spectacularly.


Democrats

Because nothing they held most dear — open borders, gay marriage, abortion, etc. — was able to win at the ballot box, they abused the courts to force their agenda down our throats.

The days of transforming our country through judicial activism are over, and that is a catastrophe for the left.


The Establishment Media


This loss is as devastating to the CNNs, NBCs, NPRs, and Washington Posts as Trump’s presidential victory.

Every single one of these liars (who have harbored dozens of their own #MeToo perps for decades) went all-in to destroy an innocent man, and now they have lost the remaining ticketholders of their kabuki theater of objectivity… At long last, even Never Trump sees them for the monsters they truly are. And yes, they are the enemy of the people. Well, decent people.

What’s more, for at least ten days, all of the power of the media — print, online, and broadcast — was targeted at only a handful of senators. Naked, shameless, 24/7 propaganda and appeals to emotion directed at a half dozen people, and still they belly-flopped — primarily because alternative media was just as tireless in putting out the facts.

The establishment media vastly out-funds and out-mans alternative media, but we can still kick their candy asses because truth and decency are on our side.


Michael Avenatti

Even the far-left Washington Post had to concede that Avenatti parachuting into this debate with a fistful of lies about Kavanaugh being a serial rapist backfired big time.

Anyone looking for proof the organized left had constructed a campaign of character assassination against an innocent man could not only look at what Avenatti was up to, but how seriously his confederates in the media took his outrageous claims.

CNN built Avenatti, so don’t forget to thank Jeff Zucker.


Lisa Murkowski

The only Republican Senator to vote against Kavanaugh made up her mind while walking in to vote on cloture, and her only explanation was, “He’s not the right man for the court.”

You can do better, Alaska.

Fox News

The opinion line-up was fine, it was the news part of Fox News that disgraced itself with a litany of fake news about Dr. Ford being “credible.”

It is not about the politics or the even the fate of the Supreme Court — the fate of a man was on the line, a whole man, and Fox News, of all places, threw him to the wolves by declaring — without a shred of evidence, without hearing his side — that the sexual assault allegations against him “credible.”

That is as un-American as it gets.

Fox News is dead to me.


Never Trump Dead-Enders

David Frum, Jennifer Rubin, Joe Scarborough, Bill Kristol… These are not conservatives outraged over Trump’s this or that, these are hysterics and principle-free egomaniacs.


Cory Booker

The only thing we learned about Spartacus throughout all of this is that he is no Obama. Say what you want about our former president, he was unflappable, intelligent, composed, and nearly impossible to catch off guard.

Booker is a quarter-witted deer in the headlights, and watching Trump eat his lunch in 2020 is going to be GLORIOUS.


#MeToo

Now that decent people know that the left and media are willing to exploit and pervert what had been a just cause into an obscenity against people who are guilty only of holding “incorrect” beliefs, #MeToo will never be what it was, not even close, and that is a shame.


The Matriarchy

I am not arguing The Patriarchy is perfect, but we have just spent 18 days living inside The Matriarchy only to discover it is a circle of hell built on a foundation of nightmares — of shrill injustice led by mindless mobs cheered on by brown-nosers like Jake Tapper who conceal their bullying behind “virtue” as they proclaim we’ve “heard enough from men.”

Overall, I cannot think of a worse three weeks for those who wish to put an end to the stereotype about women being spiteful, driven by emotion, and lacking in reason.

Hollywood

The industry with a whole lot more #MeToo perps than stars is now so universally despised, their thoughtless rants and snobbish peacocking actually do more to help Trump’s cause than any super PAC ever could. We now welcome their unhinged ravings, their mean-spiritedness, their willingness to spoil every good time by strutting in with a soapbox. Which brings me to…


Alyssa Milano

Who’s the boss now, cupcake?

I wonder if that was the same digit that Kavanaugh used when he pushed a 15 year old Ford into a bedroom and locked the door behind them.

There is a great deal to be outraged right now: Russian interference, ICE raids in hospital rooms, Eroding LGBTQ rights, Vanishing environmental protections, Puerto Rico still in shambles, Flint still without clean water, unparalleled gun homicides, a compromised Evangelical Church, raising hate crimes, the sabotaging on the Affordable Care Act. - John Pavlovitz [B]Their blood is on YOUR hands.[/B]

You don't understand the liberal double standard. Liberals don't need proof because women never lie. They may conveniently forget everything but they never lie.

That does seem to be the case.


Also, you forgot Western civilization is nothing but tyrannical patriarchal oppression & toxic masculinity.


When I retire in 2 years and get settled into my new town, I'll give you a heads up.  I, and some of my friends, are going to take over a small town in Washington state.  Current residents of that town are a bunch of surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism, who've managed to stop their town from dying when the sole major employer, a lumber mill, shut down.  That's the kind of folks I like.


Might be you will want to join us although, oddly enough, I'm thinking this whole kavanaugh debacle may have been a good thing.  The postmodern, neomarxist and 3rd wave feminist types have been pushing their luck for quite a number of years now.  Good folk have been watching their shenanigans and antics and shaking their heads in astonishment and irritation.


Might be that irritation has finally turned to anger and the realization that we have to do something about these people, they've become dangerous.  The midterm elections next month may reveal whether my suspicions are correct. 


We can see here from some of our more pathological members, that they haven't learned a damned thing from losing control of the house, the senate and the presidency.  The antics of their brethren in the public sphere recently suggest the lesson remains unabsorbed throughout their ranks.  I suppose the question is, numbers. 


Numbers can overwhelm anything.


Ah.  An update.  It looks like the media is going to do a little damage control and pre-emptive narrative manipulation.  Angry leftist mobs are not really angry leftists mobs... they're peaceful gatherings being deliberately misrepresented as "angry, violent mobs", by devious republicans.

Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies. The advantage of insinuations over hard arguments is that they bypass critical thought. No one can respond precisely to a charge that is utterly vague or to accusers who will envelope any reply in a poisonous fog of further insinuations. ~ David Warren, The Guardian There was a time when there was enough freedom that it hardly mattered which brand of crooks ran government. That has not been true for a long time and that captures an important point. The more powerful the government becomes, the more people are willing to do in order to seize the prize, and the more afraid they become when someone else has control. ~ Glenn Harlan Reynolds “The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve.” ― H.L. Mencken
