It seems the one thing in significantly short supply in Washington, D.C. is backbone. A country is not destroyed by the wicked. It is not necessary that people be wicked, merely that they be spineless. Such appears to be the fate that awaits America due to the cowardice of the Republican party.
President Donald Trump was advised to nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh, rather than Judge Amy Barrett because many Republicans expressed significant concern that Barrett’s social conservatism might “upset” many more left-leaning members of Congress and members of the Democratic Party. Yet neither the left nor the Democrats hold power in Congress currently, so frankly, what gets their knickers in a knot is frankly irrelevant. Yet Republicans continue to acquiesce anyway in the holds that a milder more palatable choice would avoid any potential nasty altercations with the powerless opposition party of “resistance.”
For reasons many Republicans fail to understand, the Democrats will be nasty regardless. It is irrelevant whether it is a person or policy they once supported themselves. Every single measure, piece of GOP legislation, or appointment will be treated as though the sky is falling forthwith and all of human civilization as we know it will be ending. The left is permanently stuck on DEFCON 1 with panic and pandemonium the only options. It seems that if they are going to throw tantrums complete with wailing and gnashing of teeth anyway, why not give them something to throw a tantrum about?

It truly does not matter if the Democrats do panic. Republicans are in power and with that power comes the ability to shove whatever they like down the throat of the Democratic Party. But it appears that cowardice continues to rule the day when Republicans continue to compromise, even when there is no reason to do so. The GOP seems to be content to pander, despite the fact that the opposition will settle for nothing but complete and total surrender.
Republican cowardice has made the current Kavanaugh debacle possible and that same cowardice has sustained it. Democrats complain that GOP leadership is “bullying” Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, yet the facts clearly show that to not be the case. After spending the last week groveling at the feet of Blasey Ford, making concession after concession, either pleading with her to come to Congress and tell her unsubstantiated and unverified story of supposed misconduct. A story with so many holes one could drive a truck through it.
In a clear lack of bad faith, the Democrats continue to stall with their wild and salacious accusations rooting through Kavanaugh’s closet for any skeleton, real or imagined to use against him in an effort to prevent or even just delay his confirmation until after the 2018 midterm elections to be held in November 2018.

Republicans could choose to put an end to every bit of this but for reasons only they understand that is not the case. They could have confirmed him last week. They could confirm him today. Yet they have chosen not to when there is actually nothing to be gained by this unless the utter and complete decimation of Kavanaugh’s professional reputation is what they hope to achieve? For Democrats that is a win, as it sets a precedent for things to come making Kavanaugh a cautionary tale to other conservative judges. Do not bother running. We will simply destroy you instead and Republicans are are allowing this to happen.
If Democrats take down Kavanaugh on the basis of these charges, they will have achieved the miraculous by stopping a Supreme Court nominee with two unproven and probably unprovable charges, in a smashing victory for garbage-pail politics.
Kavanaugh is an excellent jurist and brilliant legal mind with a stellar reputation after decades of public service. If his reputation is to be shredded and his career left in tatters, at least let it be for legitimate reasons, not just from vicious rumors spread by fear-mongering over the fear that their ability to continue to murder their offspring with impunity would be the best option.
Kavanaugh himself chose to break his silence on Fox News in an interview with Martha MacCallum. Appearing alongside his wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, Kavanaugh stated that he will “not be intimidated into withdrawing” his Supreme Court nomination and staunchly denying the accusations. He referred to them a “grotesque and obvious character assassination” and “a coordinated effort” to drive him out on the nomination.
Kavanaugh stated – “We’re talking about allegations of sexual misconduct. I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone. I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter. And the girls from the schools I went to and I were friends.”
“So you’re saying through all these years that you were in question you were a virgin?” asks MacCallum.
The judge responds, “That’s correct.”
The Fox News host follows up with another question, stating – “Never had sexual intercourse with anyone in high school?”
“That’s correct,” Kavanaugh responds.
“And through what years in college, since we’re probing through your personal life here?” MacCallum asks.
“Many years, many years after,” he responds. “I’ll leave it at that, many years after. I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity, and I know I’m telling the truth. I know my lifelong record and I’m not going to let false accusations drive me out of this process…I have faith in God and I have faith in the fairness of the American people.”
Ashley Estes Kavanaugh: "This process is incredibly difficult – harder than we imagined, and we imagined it might be hard. But at the end of the day our faith is strong and we know that we're on the right path." #TheStory https://t.co/ZexbiQZjf2 pic.twitter.com/KjUBtQJARh

Kavanaugh then added that he was “not questioning and has not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place but what I do know is I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone.”
His wife then spoke for the first time publically regarding the allegations against her husband and how their two daughters are dealing with this very difficult time for their family, stating – “It’s very difficult to have these conversations with your children, which we’ve had to have. “They know Brett and they know the truth and we told them at the very beginning of this process that this will be not fun sometimes, just remember, you know your dad.”
“This process is incredibly difficult – harder than we imagined, and we imagined it might be hard. But at the end of the day, our faith is strong and we know that we’re on the right path,” she added.
Mrs. Kavanaugh has received multiple threats, some of them violent and some have even been sent to her work email account. The threats have risen to such a level that all of her emails are currently being investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.
One email sent to her work reads – “Please tell your rapist, lying, cheating, corrupt bitch of a husband to put a bullet in his ugly fucking skull.”
Another email states – “My condolences to you for being married to a rapist. Although you probably deserve it.”
An email with a subject line reading – “Did you know your husband is a rapist?????” with the body of the email stating – “Hey bitch, did you know your husband was a rapist before you married him? Fuck you and your fucking family.”
Yet another email tells Mrs. Kavanaugh to “eat shit.” It goes on to read – “Fuck you, rape enabling c**t. Your husband is a liar, thief, rapist, and probably a pedophile. Burn in hell you worthless fucking c**t. May you, your husband and your kids burn in hell you fucking pieces of trash.”

New York Times Editor: We’re Switching From Russia Collusion To ‘Trump Is Racist’
The New York Times and others have repeatedly tried to take down President Trump with libelous statements on the Russian collusion front and have failed spectacularly every single time. Now, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet has accidentally admitted that for two years his far-left newspaper was “built” around spreading a hoax. Oops. But it’s never too late to shift propaganda in this political war.
He was secretly recorded saying just that and it got out. Baquet also admitted the Times’ staff is loaded with left-wingers “who cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden.” Do tell. I’m shocked I tell you. Simply shocked.
What is actually shocking is this recording comes by way of the leftist rag, Slate. They got their mitts on the recording of a company-wide meeting Baquet held with his staffers and it is an illuminating look at how leftist media utilizes and manipulates propaganda for political effect. Why Slate would let that out is puzzling, to say the least.
Baquet has now admitted that for two long years his leftist newspaper was “built” around the Russia Collusion Hoax: “It got trickier after [inaudible] … went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character. We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well.”
Truly well? Do you mean by lying and falsifying facts? They did that very well. There was not a shred of evidence that Trump colluded with Russia yet the NYT reported on it as fact for two years and in actuality, made stuff up to fit that narrative.
So the NY Times (D-NY) is back to hosting political strategy sessions on how to destroy @realDonaldTrump. Collusion failed. Obstruction came up short. Now they’ve returned to the favorite cry of every liberal who’s losing an argument: RACISM! A sad commentary on “news” in America https://t.co/en4Y8nQCOa

But the New York Times has seen the light, so to speak. The Russia collusion hoax hasn’t worked so now they are switching tactics… Trump is now a racist and everything will revolve around that lie: “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred[.]”
The truth is that if Trump were actually a racist it would have come out decades ago. This is a last-ditch effort to besmirch a sitting president so a communist can take his place in the next election. It’s subversion and in my book… a form of treason.
You can still taste the salty leftist tears from being disappointed that Mueller did not take down Trump: “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?”
So, while the NYT, WaPo, and other lefty rags spewed lies and propaganda, outlets such as Breitbart, The Daily Wire, and The Daily Caller among others did real reporting and told the truth. For their efforts, a number of them have been banned on social media.
“Baquet pretty much spends the rest of the 90 minutes meeting fielding questions from individuals who are supposed to be professionals but who only want to know how they can call Trump and his supporters racists even more often.
“You see, according to the Times’ staff, everything is racist because everything really is racist.
“You probably think that whole “everything is racist” thing is me being sarcastic. Here’s a direct quote from a staffer [emphasis added]:
“Hello, I have another question about racism. I’m wondering to what extent you think that the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country should play into our reporting. Just because it feels to me like it should be a starting point, you know? Like these conversations about what is racist, what isn’t racist. I just feel like racism is in everything. It should be considered in our science reporting, in our culture reporting, in our national reporting. And so, to me, it’s less about the individual instances of racism, and sort of how we’re thinking about racism and white supremacy as the foundation of all of the systems in the country.
“Good grief. What a dispiriting and not-at-all surprising look at the ignorant whack jobs in charge of our media — and in the case of the New York Times, not just the media, but what is considered the elite of the media elite. What are they obsessed with? What do these conspiracy-loons see everywhere in 2019 America…?
“Here we sit in the most tolerant, diverse country in the world just a few years after having twice elected a black president with the middle name “Hussein,” and the people in charge of the media are breaking down into pools of self-pity because they want to scream racist at us even more than they already have.
“And again, let’s not forget that the only way they can try to pretend America is racist is by way of massive hoaxes: the Very Fine People Hoax, the Covington Hoax, the George Zimmerman Is White Hoax, the Hands Up Don’t Shoot Hoax, the Jussie Smollett Hoax, and the countless hoax hate crimes they spread over and over and over again without scrutiny.”
Good grief is an understatement. The NYT does not cover real news anymore like the rising tide of anti-Semitism in this country. They are too busy protecting terrorists and radicals, while smearing the president and conservatives, to do their actual jobs.
The New York Times openly admits that anti-Jewish hate crimes don’t interest the Times because white supremacists are not behind them: “If anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York, it is to some extent because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy. During the past 22 months, not one person caught or identified as the aggressor in an anti-Semitic hate crime has been associated with a far right-wing group, Mark Molinari, commanding officer of the police department’s Hate Crimes Task Force, told me.”
But young white males are domestic terrorists according to these people. Geez. Not communist Antifa or Black Lives Matter or the Nation of Islam or the Black Panthers… white boys are the ticket, y’all.
Since the media is out of Russian ammo and they detest Trump, they have to have another way of smearing him and throwing the race card is their final desperate move in this political dance. Nothing else has stuck to Teflon-Don. Look for them to cry ‘racism’ non-stop for the next two years in their latest contrived hoax against the president. But you won’t hear them cover actual racism because it does not fit their political narrative. It has to be Trump, Trump, Trump! or it’s not news.
The NYT is a peddler of hate. No wonder they had to stop publishing political cartoons because the editorial staff can’t recognize blatant anti-Semitism. These aren’t journalists anymore… they are Brown Shirts. They feel they’ll get away with calling Trump a racist. After all, they got away with the Russian crap for two years.
Wow! The Deputy Editor of the Failing New York Times was just demoted. Should have been Fired! Totally biased and inaccurate reporting. The paper is a Fraud, Zero Credibility. Fake News takes another hit, but this time a big one!
