Democrats bank on voter ignorance by supporting FBI investigation of Kavanaugh

They hope we’re stupid, or at least too blinded by our emotional responses to realize how inappropriately they’re handling the entire Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process. Now, Democrats are doubling down on their ill-advised play by supporting an impossible FBI investigation.

As I noted yesterday, Christine Blasey Ford has already tossed credibility out the window by calling for the FBI to investigate a he-said-she-said claim from 36 or 37 years ago before she’s willing to testify.

By demanding an impossible FBI investigation, Ford tossed credibility out the window

https://noqreport.com/2018/09/19/demanding-impossible-fbi-investigation-ford-tossed-credibility-window/Nothing adds up anymore for several reasons. First, nobody would be so naive to think an incident at a party 36 or 37 years ago (she isn’t quite sure about the YEAR it allegedly occurred, let alone the date) in an unknown venue (she doesn’t recall where it took place) is something the FBI is capable of investigating. Before she’ll testify, she’s demanding the impossible.

Second, the Justice Department has already indicated it’s not their jurisdiction or responsibility to investigate this type of alleged crime. Twice. This isn’t a political refusal. It’s simply not what the FBI does. Again, before she’ll testify, she’s demanding the impossible.

It should have ended with that. The Democrats should have pulled her aside and said, “Oh honey, what you’re asking is impossible. Just testify and we’ll sort this out in the Senate.” That’s what they should have done because it’s up to the Senate, not the FBI or anyone else in the executive branch, to ultimately determine the fitness of Brett Kavanaugh to be a Supreme Court justice.

The problem they have is that they’ve already made a mockery of the process. In their attempts to stall until after the midterm elections, they’ve thrown every proper and improper procedural maneuver against the wall in hopes that something will stick. Now, the accusation is their last hope so they’re doing what they feel is necessary based upon hopes that voters won’t notice, won’t understand, or won’t care.

Let’s look at those three hopes and see if they’ll stick.

Democrats hope voters won’t notice

Of the three, this is the one that is certain regardless of how much attention is given to it by the press. Our society has devolved into a quick-hit, instant response media consumption machine. We have immediate access to so much news. Any major event is put in front of us moments after it happens.

The average American sees on their phones via Facebook or Twitter or Google News or wherever that the floodwaters are still rising in North Carolina, Democrats back calls for the FBI to investigate Kavanaugh, a mass shooting happened in Maryland, and LeBron James is going to be in Space Jam 2.

It’s a lot to take in and the attention span of the average human only allows them to really notice a tiny portion of the news put in front of them. It registers on a slight level, just enough for a quick judgment. In this case, the news of an untenable call by Democrats to investigate Kavanaugh’s alleged attack registers for Democrats as “yes, do it,” and Republicans as, “no, that’s silly.” That’s as far as news like this normally goes.

Democrats hope voters won’t understand

If they were being intellectually honest, the Democrats would acknowledge that their entire handling of the Kavanaugh confirmation has been an exercise in activism from the Capitol. They haven’t treated these hearings with anything other than contempt and they’ve put Kavanaugh through the harshest process they could muster.

Based solely on his adherence to the Constitution, his pro-life stance, and the math that’s coming together in the Supreme Court under President Trump, they’ve done things that would make past Senates cringe. Here’s just one example:

Precedents Democrats are setting during Kavanaugh’s confirmation are disastrous for the republic

https://noqreport.com/2018/09/16/precedents-democrats-setting-kavanaughs-confirmation-disastrous-republic/Take, for example, the questions they sent to Kavanaugh. To say the sheer number of them is unprecedented is a gigantic understatement. The previous 163 Supreme Court nominees have had 1247 total questions submitted to them over the centuries by the Senate. Kavanaugh has had 1278.

Democrats are acting like wounded dogs backed into a corner. They aren’t; if they played their cards right they could take the House and Senate this year. However, they either don’t recognize the position of potential strength they’re in or they lack the strategic intellect to handle the situation properly.

This truly has been the most extraordinary attempt to confirm a Supreme Court justice in the history of the nation. To say it’s unprecedented would be a gross understatement, but Democrats are hopeful that the average American voter will not realize their actions are unhinged. They hope this will play out as politics as usual with the Democrats doing their duty as Senators instead of the reality that they’re acting like petulant children trying to take someone else’s ball at the park so they can run away with it.

Democrats hope voters won’t care

In a sane world, the Democrats’ actions would be viewed as dangerous to their future prospects. From Senator Cory “Spartacus” Booker’s obvious calls for attention to Senator Dianne Feinstein’s last minute hail mary to slow or block the confirmation, they’re taking chances with actions that should haunt them on election day.

But they won’t. By the time this is over it will be spun along partisan lines as always. The details will no longer register in voters’ minds. The spectacle this has become will be removed from memory and the apathy of party politics will once again take hold.

How the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are handling this confirmation should be the last straw that gets them all voted out at the earliest possible moment. That’s the scenario if voters cared about what’s happening. The Democrats are latching their futures onto the hopes that voters really won’t care and they’re almost certainly right.

It’s our responsibility as politically aware conservatives to make our friends and family understand the debacle the Democrats have caused in the Senate. Whether Kavanaugh is confirmed or not, we can’t let the Democrats involved get out of this politically unscathed.

If only one Democrat, mainstream media shill, or Hollywood snowflake admitted they were wrong about Mueller…

If only one Democrat mainstream media shill or Hollywood snowflake admitted they were wrong about Mu

My nasty, terrible, awful secret is that deep down, I thought Donald Trump Jr. colluded with the Russians. I know what you’re thinking. “How did you fall for the media’s fake news?” As ashamed as I am of this revelation, I figured based on the information being circulated, it made sense that Don Jr. got a tip that could help his father and he likely acted on it.

Following the summary of Robert Mueller’s investigation report that claimed there was no collusion by the Trump campaign, I’m pleased to acknowledge that I was wrong. Of course, I’m not a Democrat, a mainstream media shill, or a Hollywood snowflake. I’m just an innocent conservative who fell for onslaught of “bombshell” reports.

I was wrong and I’m happy about that.

Now, try to find anyone in the opposition party in newsrooms, Hollywood, or the DNC who is willing to admit they were wrong this whole time. Anyone? ANYONE?

Here’s the thing. If there’s one thing that would help heal this nation’s divide, it would be the Democrats coming out and acknowledging they made a huge mistake following faulty reports and wishful thinking that led them to believe in something that simply wasn’t there. Aren’t the Democrats about uniting the nation? Aren’t they the ones always saying the nation’s divided and it needs to be fixed?

I’m one of those people who likes many of the things the President is doing while not liking the way he’s doing it. But I’m also the type of person who can acknowledge when I was misled, and after falling for the witch hunt hoax of the century, I have no problem doing so now.

Therefore, I call on those who helped spread the Russian-Trump collusion narrative to publicly admit they were spreading the rumors from their own echo chamber and turning it into what they would consider to be news. If they can do that, I’ll actually regain a smidgen of respect for them.

It’s hard to admit when you’re wrong. I get it. But the nation is truly divided and the Russian-collusion fake news witch hunt hoax is the primary culprit of the last two years. Grow some integrity and acknowledge your errors, Democrats.

Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if it’s clean

Releasing the full Mueller report would destroy the Democratic Party for 2020 if its clean

Let’s play the hypothetical game. Now that Attorney General William Barr’s summary of Robert Mueller’s Russian election hacking report has indicated the President and his campaign did not collude with the Russians, the only thing the left can do is hope for a release of the full report. In it, they hope to find evidence that there really was collusion and possibly obstruction of justice, but not enough evidence to indict anyone on it. In the court of public opinion, it may be enough to win the 2020 election.

But what if there’s nothing? What if the Mueller report makes it even more clear than AG Barr’s conclusion that collusion didn’t occur? In that scenario, releasing the report would give the GOP every ounce of ammunition they need to sink the Democratic Party for the foreseeable future.

Imagine all the soundbites and Tweets of Democrats, media shills, and Hollywood activists over the last 22 months declaring with a certainty that the investigation was necessary, that it would yield fruit, and that it wasn’t a witch hunt. Now, imagine a Republican Party that was actually savvy when it comes to winning elections. I know it’s difficult to picture based on RNC’s campaign illiteracy, but try your hardest to picture effectiveness in campaign messaging by the GOP. Such a scenario would put dozens of Democrats across the nation in jeopardy based solely on the gigantic waste of time, energy, and personal investment.

They promised us they were going to take down the President and prove he stole the 2016 election. They banked on the notion that the only reason Hillary Clinton lost is because Donald Trump cheated. They screamed through tears of desperation in trying to protect Mueller because they assumed the President would fire him. When none of those things panned out, they revealed their attempts to rally the people for a righteous cause were actually manifestations of their Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Can you imagine all that? Good. Now, let’s look at the reality of the situation.

If the report is not released soon, it’s very likely there are things in there that the President doesn’t want made public. There would be no other reason to keep it sealed, especially after declaring that it should be released. The shadow of the report is going to grow much bigger than the meat of the report itself. The left is already playing like the Barr summary was just a smokescreen so the administration could keep the report sealed without getting backlash.

On the other hand, holding the report back for a little while could be the 4D chess we always hear about in regards to the President’s campaign strategies. If he can get the left banking even more on the report as their smoking gun before releasing it to reveal a giant nothingburger, it may not just be a few dozen Democrats across the nation in sudden election jeopardy. It could be the end for literally hundreds of them.

Don’t assume if the report gets held from the public for a while that it has something bad in it. If it gets released in a month or two after every Democratic candidate screams for it, then the nothinburger will be a poison pill for their whole party.

First they came for the gun owners….

First they came for the gun owners

…but I didn’t say anything because I didn’t own a gun.

One of the more infuriating aspects of the Left’s game of denying reality with their little ‘That wasn’t really socialism’ is that there are distinct parallels between their agenda and that of other socialist nations, past and present. They all have a similar process of imposing socialistic slavery with a specific national agenda. A key part being the deprivation of the means of self-defense to their citizens and those who posses these means.

Denying the right of self-defense is a fundamental aspect of socialism

It is a fact of history that gun confiscation is an integral part of implementing of a socialist national agenda. The USSR required the people to turn in their guns, as did the German national socialist worker’s party. As was Fidel Castro’s response in the question of whether the people should have guns as or the United Socialist Party of Venezuela confiscating guns from the people for their own safety, of course.

These have all taken place at the onset of socialistic slavery, but somehow the new version isn’t the same because reasons. Leftists aren’t really trying to set up a governmental monopoly on the use of force, they are just trying to protect the children* [ *unborn and under 9 months old excluded ]. Even though it has been proven time and again that their repression of Liberty does not work as advertised.

The liberty grabber left is now celebrating the destruction of basic civil liberties

Where this subject not so deadly serious, it would be comical to still witness leftists parroting the ‘No one is talking about gun confiscation’ or a variant thereof. Meanwhile they can scarcely contain themselves in the glee over New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern seizing on their ‘serious crisis’ to confiscate guns with tweets looking to replicate the destruction of a basic human right in the states.

It is more than a coincidence that the tempo of the drum beat for liberty control has increased while the ideological fraud of socialism is being forced on the people. After a long winded piece gloating about leftist victories over liberty, an opinion piece in Bloomberg has even suggested that Chief Justice John Roberts seize on the serious crisis in New Zealand, using it to destroy this basic civil liberty.

Citizens turned into subjects with a change in the relationship between the people and the government

The genius of the founding fathers is that they recognized that down through history, people have had varying relationships with government. In most cases it was one of the government having a monopoly on the use of force. On occasion the people would challenge this monopoly and change the government, but only after an ensuing orgy of carnage and death.

The founders set forth a new paradigm, that of government by the consent of the people with a semblance of parity via a distributed ability to use force. The nation’s Socialist-Left would like to change or ‘reform’ that paradigm back to the old-fashioned version of the government being the sole purveyor of force. Please note that we are dispensing with the tired old line of the left that this is not what they want. They have made this quite clear over the past few years to the point that anyone that is informed of the issue recognizes that this is just another lie on their part.

“He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression.” – Thomas Paine

Relegating gun owners to 2nd class citizenship

Those of us who haven’t traded, sold or lost all of our guns in a boating accident are a persecuted class these days. The situation is much akin to a baseball pitching machine throwing fastballs over and over again without let-up. With all kinds of new laws being proposed at state and federal levels that range from invasive Intergalactic Background Checks, liability insurance requirements, gun registration and of course, gun confiscation SWATing legislation.

The destruction of basic civil liberties will only begin with gun owners

Every citizen of the nation is protected with basic Constitutional principles and civil rights including due process, the presumption of innocence and the right to face one’s accuser.

The gun owner has been excluded from these basic civil liberties in some states, and if the liberty grabbers had their way, such would be the case nationwide. With just the flimsiest insinuation of being ‘dangerous’ a gun owner [or those who are merely accused of being a gun owner] will be subjected to gun confiscation raid from the authorities.

This will be just the beginning of the ordeal – if they survive the SWAT team coming at 5:00 AM without warning. Our 2nd class citizen will have to prove they aren’t ‘dangerous’ after they have effectively found guilty in a star chamber. It will only be after spending thousands of dollars in legal fees that they may get their property back in less than stellar condition. The trend is to set gun owners below the legal status of accused criminals in the eyes of the justice system.

We’re just starting on the slippery slope

Fresh from their moves against the basic human right of self-preservation, the chief censor of the government of New Zealand has arbitrarily decided that certain ideas are beyond the pale, sparking a debate over free speech as reported by the Associated Press. This of course is another ongoing controversy in the states over the issue of political correctness and ‘Hate speech’. This shows that isn’t just about ‘military style assault weapons’ or whatever is the phrase at the moment, this is a question of liberty, something the people who use a similar sounding label used to pretend to support.

Make no mistake, the legislative mechanisms and regulations used to deprive gun owners of their commonsense human and civil rights will be used on others if they are allowed to stand. A civil liberties group in California made the point that one doesn’t have to be a gun owner to be subjected to gun confiscation SWATing. If they can go after the property of a gun owner in one instance, because they don’t like their attitude, what’s to stop them from going after a journalist or other type of activist? These orders only have to allege someone is dangerous with little evidence, much less proof that they own a gun. What’s to stop them from deciding free-speech is dangerous or ‘offensive’ necessitating that their computers or cell phones should be seized – at gunpoint no less?

The Takeaway

The whole point of the ‘first they came for’ series is that authoritarians rarely go after everyone at once. They are very careful in picking their targets for their oppression with the tactic of divide and conquer. Today it’s the people who own guns, tomorrow it will be those who don’t conform to the precepts of ‘political correctness’.

This is why President John F. Kennedy stated that: “The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”

This is why everyone should be concerned at the headlong rush to denigrate the right of self-defense. And why everyone should be horrified that the government could even consider jettisoning the basic civil liberty of due process and the presumption of innocence. The loss of basic civil rights for some will mean the loss for everyone.
