Democrats sowed the wind and they are about to reap the whirl wind. They demanded an FBI investigation without realizing that they will be held accountable for the results. They have repeatedly told everyone that only an FBI investigation can be trusted. That makes it almost impossible to discount the results of that investigation when it is finished. Baring some shocking and unexpected development, the FBI is almost certain to interview all the people and they will say the same things they have already said. To some extent, they have no choice, because if they change their story now, they can be charged with perjury. The result is that NONE of the allegations against Kavanaugh will be confirmed. The only thing that will have changed is another delay and Democrats running out of excuses.
The FBI investigation will give wobbly RINO Republicans cover to vote for Kavanaugh. While Democrats have been crowing on TV that everyone must believe Ms. Ford, they are not trying that with Republican Senators. That is because they know that this is not true, and even RINO Republican Senators are not that stupid.
Democrats will make one more attempt to resist the confirmation by claiming that because Kavanaugh told the truth about them that he lacks the temperament to be on the Supreme Court. Some will even argue that because he probably drank too much beer on occasion while in High School that should disqualify him. Few members of congress can even make that argument with a straight face. It is doomed to failure.
Baring a major bombshell, Kavanaugh will be confirmed. It probably won’t even be that close with a least a few Democratic Senators crossing party lines to vote for confirmation. But the effects of this hearing will linger on for a long time.
I listened to a couple of Democratic strategists who think that Democrats will be outraged and will show up in droves to vote in the mid-term elections. They all commented on how rage is a major motivator. They are right about rage being a major motivator, but they missed a few things. One is that if you say it is absolutely necessary for you to win, and then you lose, few people will believe you anymore. Yes the left will be angry, but at least some of that anger will be directed toward the leaders in the Democratic Party. The other is that Democrats were already outraged, because the Democrats party has been taken over by the liberal left that has always been fueled by outrage. Liberals aren’t happy unless they are unhappy. That is why you see so many liberal activists screaming “shame on you” at anyone who disagrees with them. The most recent victim was Ted Cruz and his wife while out for dinner. That hasn’t changed.
What has changed is that for the first time, in a very long time, it is conservative Republicans who are outraged. When Lyndsey Graham just couldn’t take it anymore and he exploded at Democrats he struck a chord all across this country:
Boy, you [Democrats] all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham.
These hearings exposed Democrats in a way that is impossible to ignore. This reminds me of something George W. Bush said during an address on September 21, 2001:
“We’re not deceived by their pretenses to piety. We have seen their kind before. They’re the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions, by abandoning every value except the will to power, they follow in the path of fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way to where it ends in history’s unmarked grave of discarded lies.”
Liberal Democrats did not kill Brett Kavanaugh, but they certainly created an environment where he and his family where subject to death threats. They were absolutely willing to destroy him. They are willing to abandon every value except the lust for absolute power.
I believe people will be shocked by the results of this mid-term election. Perhaps I am wrong, but I can literally feel a seething anger among people who have never been that way before. If Republicans fail to get this good man approved, they will feel that anger. But if they do get him confirmed, it will be a great victory and that anger will be directed, where it belongs, to those who simply do not share our values.
