Dianne Feinstein used alleged sexual assault victim as political weapon

An accusation has been made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. His accuser claims he sexually assaulted her while they were in high school. The alleged victim should be treated with respect and heard. In fact, her allegations should have been heard in July when she brought them to the attention of Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Instead, the “bombshell” was saved by Feinstein to be dropped at the last possible moment before a vote to move forward with Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

She had ample opportunity and a deep responsibility as the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee to question Kavanaugh about the allegations the moment they were deemed relevant and trustworthy. Based on what we know about his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, the allegations should be considered credible. That’s not to say they’re true by any means and Kavanaugh has categorically denied them, but there’s no reason to dismiss the accusations outright.

Feinstein chose to weaponize the allegations. She knew if she came forward in July or even August, that there would be enough time to examine the allegations and determine if the Senate needed to consider them. They could have questioned Kavanaugh during the confirmation hearings, during personal interviews, or in writing. Instead, we are placed in a confirmation limbo because of Feinstein’s choice to wait until the eleventh hour.

There were no factors preventing her from bringing the allegations to light earlier. She and her colleagues assessed the situation and determined it would be best for them politically to wait until now.

Many on the left will say it was a good tactic because it has the best chance of derailing the confirmation. They will ignore the ethics behind the move by justifying using dirty tricks because they’re being used against President Trump. All’s fair in love, war, and taking down Trump if you’re a hardcore leftist.

The left learned that weaponizing sexual assault allegations can be a very powerful tool in promoting their agenda. Sadly, they’re getting better at it. Feinstein should be ashamed of herself, but she won’t be. She’ll be proud of her deceit if it gives her the desired outcome.

Timothy P. Carney did a nice write-up on the topic over at Washington Examiner:

The long silences of Christine Blasey Ford and Dianne Feinstein

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-long-silences-of-christine-blasey-ford-and-dianne-feinsteinThere are many reasons to think (3) is true, even if (1) or (2) is also true. For one thing, the Democrats did the exact same thing with Anita Hill’s charges against Clarence Thomas. For another, the timing tactics here are simple: if they torpedoed Kavanaugh in July, that would give Republicans too much time to find a replacement nominee.

If explanation (3) is true, that tells us something about Feinstein–she is a dishonest politician playing dirty politics with a deadly serious charge. And if the first two are true, but she’s trotting the document out now, it tells us she’s knowingly smearing a man.

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti, his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Things were looking pretty bad for attorney Michael Avenatti last week. He was arrested for domestic abuse, making him the laughing stock on social media venues that he prizes as his public relations arm. His star client, porn star Stormy Daniels, is reportedly reconsidering her association with her lawyer. That was last week. This week is starting off badly as well.

His law firm has been evicted from their Newport Beach, California office building for skipping out on four months rent totally $213,000.

Avenatti’s law firm evicted from California offices over unpaid $213G rent

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/avenattis-law-firm-evicted-from-california-offices-over-unpaid-213g-rentMichael Avenatti’s law firm was ordered to be evicted from its California offices over unpaid rent after the judge dismissed his attempt to block the eviction, the latest setback for the embattled lawyer who was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this week.

His law firm – Eagan Avenatti – was sued after skipping four months of rent payments totaling over $213,000.

My Take

As I was saying even before this latest round of bad news, Michael Avenatti needs to take a long break from the public eye. Even the best spin doctors couldn’t salvage his reputation in the short term. If he hopes to someday emerge into the public spotlight that he craves, he’ll need to take a break from being in the news and get some solid ground underneath him.

Many leftists supported him in his quests to take down the President, block Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, launch a 2020 presidential run, and become a prominent face for the Democratic Party. It’s safe to say they backed the wrong horse.

Conspiracy Theory

Many Democrats support Mueller investigation without knowing what it’s about

“Trump stole the election!”

Two years and two elections ago, something happened that has Democrats scratching their heads even today. Hillary Clinton lost. She wasn’t supposed to lose. She was cheated some way, somehow.

This is what they hope to be proven by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 elections. The problem is a majority of Democrats think the Russians did something that Mueller’s team isn’t even investigating because there’s absolutely no hint of a possibility that it could be true.

67% of Democrats believe “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected President.”

Let that sink in.

Robert Mueller Poll

If you believe Russia attempted to influence the elections by using social media and other venues to spread anti-Hillary rhetoric, you’re almost certainly correct. In fact, the Mueller investigation has assumed that to be true from the beginning. The question isn’t whether or not Russia tried to influence the elections in this way. It’s whether or not Americans helped them, in particular members of the Trump campaign.

What’s not being considered is whether or not Russia tampered with vote tallies. They did not. It’s not even a consideration in Mueller’s investigation, yet two-thirds of Democrats believe it to be true.

67% of Democrats can’t wait for Mueller to prove their theories correct even though he isn’t even investigating vote tally tampering at all. It’s reminiscent of the days after Obamacare was launched when Democrats asked, “Wait, it’s not free?”

Andrew Gillum concedes to Ron DeSantis in Florida gubernatorial race

It was arguably the most watched gubernatorial race in the nation this past midterm election season and it didn’t disappoint. It took a recount and multiple lawsuits to finish, but in the end Republican Ron DeSantis defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum.

The mayor of Jacksonville finally conceded for the second time today, nearly two weeks after election day. He already conceded once on election fight.

Jai, a Tallahassee park in the background and both dressed in Florida A&M University orange and green. Gillum first thanked his supporters. Then, he officially acknowledged Republican Ron DeSantis as the winner.

“R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum said in the video posted at about 5 p.m.

DeSantis Tweeted acknowledgement of the concession.

Florida is a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election. The closeness of the race and the apparent corruption in the state means both parties have a lot of work to do. The state needs to get their act together before then as well.
