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:
There 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.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
