Just keep repeating to yourself: The darkness hates the light, the darkness hates the light…
That would seem to be the lesson from the latest turn in the Democrats’ scheme to annihilate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, his family and Republican hopes for a more constitutionally framed U.S. high court.
Over at YoungConservatives, Nick Arama writes:
“Sen. Dianne Feinstein just made a move that shows how hypocritical the Democrats can be after all this drama.
“Democrats have gone out of their way to throw all kinds of dirt at Judge Kavanaugh in the hopes that something would stick and they’d be able to stop his confirmation … [T]hey were all about disruption, delay and ‘Spartacus’ moments … [and] the letter from Christine Blasey Ford, dropping it at the last minute to delay the first vote.
“Then as the allegations remained uncorroborated, they started to move the goalposts, talking about Kavanaugh’s drinking in school 30 years ago.
“Now Feinstein is moving to have the FBI report sealed and not made public.”
.@SenFeinstein indicates that the FBI report on Kavanaugh should NOT be made public: “It would seem to me that if people are going to be identified this ought to be held very close and not."
"I think the investigation ought to be closely held," she reiterated.

More details from the Conservative Tribune stating that CNN reporter Elizabeth Landers has tweeted:
“(Feinstein) indicates that the FBI report on Kavanaugh should NOT be made public: ‘It would seem to me that if people are going to be identified this ought to be held very close …”
“Funny, Feinstein didn’t seem all that concerned about keeping people’s identities ‘closely held’ when the letter sent to her from Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford was leaked to the media, nor did she exhibit any such concern when she publicly spoke about some of the other individuals named by Ford, or the other accusers who have popped out of the woodwork in Ford’s wake.”
YoungConservatives’ Arama echoes the puzzlement, quipping: “Wait, didn’t the Democrats demand that there be an FBI investigation and now they don’t want the public to know the results?”
Yep, knowing Feinstein and Co.’s track record, it should indeed be no surprise they seem determined to have it both ways — heads they win, tails Kavanaugh (and the GOP and America) lose:
“So in other words, if the FBI report isn’t good for them, sit on it. If there’s anything they can spin, let it out. Smear him in public, but clear him in private.” (Arama)
“Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), who supposedly played a role in getting Republican Sen. Jeff Flake to back off from his initial support of Kavanaugh, threw in these thoughts:
“‘I think that the work product of the FBI should be kept confidential to the Senate, but all senators should be able to review it,’ Coons told reporters.
“‘That’s typically what’s the case in any background investigation, the FBI delivers investigatory work — facts, not conclusions — and then senators review those files. But those are committee confidential files typically,’ he added.
“Also “typical” would be for the Senate Judiciary Committee to quietly investigate allegations against a nominee by itself, without dumping all of the disgusting details into public view via a coordinated media campaign.”
Don’t miss that last observation from CT’s Ben Marquis; it’s crucial: There has already been in place a process by which those original, scandalous, potentially ruinous – and now increasingly dubious — charges against Kavanaugh could have been vetted and brought before him discreetly by concerned senatorial parties. This would have occurred IN PRIVATE and WEEKS BEFORE the potentially defamatory information about the fifty-three-year-old jurist leaked. Moreover, it may have forestalled last week’s incriminating Senate Judiciary Committee circus which broadcast before millions of TV viewing Americans (and likely a hefty global audience, to boot. Lovely PR for the American system, by the way!)
“But,” wraps Arama, “because the Democrats leaked confidential information into the media and blew this whole thing up into a drama with the explicit purpose of stopping Kavanaugh, they don’t get to dictate now how he should be cleared.”
Indeed, as Boston radio talker Howie Carr might say, a “standing headline” could well be: Democrats’ Double Dealing Raises Its Head Again! Or: Lefts’ Hypocritical Standards Keep Changing the Terms of the Discussion! Or: ‘Party of Transparency’ Wants to Keep Info Hidden from American People.
Don’t forget, just short weeks ago the news cycle was dominated by Democrats’ complaints that not every grocery list and doodle Kavanaugh had ever generated — “100,000 pages of documents” — wasn’t made available to the committee.
Early in the prospective Justice’s hearings, Fox News quoted Sen. Patrick Leahy, (D-VT), “We don’t know what is being hidden.”
Then, these mordant musings from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer: “President Trump’s decision to step in at the last moment and hide [100,000] pages of Judge Kavanaugh’s records from the American public is not only unprecedented in the history of [Supreme Court nominees], it has all the makings of a cover-up.”
We’re witnessing a Friday night document massacre. President Trump’s decision to step in at the last moment and hide 100k pages of Judge Kavanaugh’s records from the American public is not only unprecedented in the history of SCOTUS noms, it has all the makings of a cover up. https://t.co/TgBAjOBRrW

Today’s Dems? Shhhh — keep the FBI findings shuttered away from the regular folks.
No denying, those Dem “goal posts” keep moving around like a Las Vegas chorus line on crack:
— Kavanaugh is a sleazy rapist – a gang rapist, in fact! Oops, well, never mind …
— But he WAS a high-school and college-age drunk, who’ll threaten the security of the Republic because he once allegedly threw ice on a fellow imbiber. Oh, not buying that, either?
— Okay, would you believe he was a belligerent maker of fart jokes when he was seventeen, eighteen?
— Hey, we need to bruit all this stuff around for those who might take it seriously – until it’s better to keep the details in the shadows, away from the delicate eyes of John and Jane Q Public. (They might decide wrongly, after all. Leave the deciding up to us, thank you very much.)
How do these characters reconcile themselves to their whipsawing lack of intellectual and moral integrity? How do they sleep at night? (Maybe they’re suffering exhaustion from all that never-ceasing, ruthless scheming, and scrambling.)
Meanwhile, American patriots DO need to reconcile themselves to something else: Leftist bad faith and duplicity ain’t going away anytime soon. It’s not that good people should grow to tolerate it, but they must be prepped to expose and meet it when it surfaces.
Or when the Democrats try to keep it from surfacing.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:
Posted by Douglas Nicholls, Yuma Mayor on Tuesday, April 16, 2019
“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
