Michael Avenatti, not Julie Swetnick, helped get Brett Kavanaugh confirmed

Michael Avenatti not Julie Swetnick helped get Brett Kavanaugh confirmed

In the aftermath of the announcements by three swing Senators to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court tomorrow, a battle erupted based on Senator Susan Collins’ assertion that the third sexual misconduct allegation against Kavanaugh may have swayed her towards supporting him.

“This outlandish allegation was put forth without any credible supporting evidence and simply parroted public statements of others,” Collins said in her speech on the Senate floor.

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for third accuser Julie Swetnick and coincidentally the lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels, took to Twitter to attack Collins.

So far, Collins hasn’t replied to the Tweets. Hopefully she won’t.

Thanks to Collins, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), and all Republican Senators other than Lisa Murkowski in Alaska, Kavanaugh is almost certain to be confirmed Saturday. What role did Avenatti play in this? Quite a bit, to the point that some on the left are even questioning Avenatti’s loyalties and motives:

The third accusation

When Christine Blasey Ford came forward, nearly everyone on the left called for a full stop while some on the right wanted to hit the pause button on Kavanaugh’s confirmation. She accused him of attempted rape when they were in high school. The second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, had a story in New Yorker Magazine that drew criticism from even leftist publications like the NY Times and Washington Post for lack of corroboration, but it was a plausible story in light of the Ford accusations. Allegedly at a college party Kavanaugh exposed himself and touched Ramirez with his penis.

Avenatti orchestrated the grand unveiling of the third accusation by Swetnick. Instead of doing what any good attorney would do in this situation, he instead teased its release on social media to shine the spotlight on himself. He promised a bombshell. What he delivered was Swetnick’s story of over ten parties she attended where Kavanaugh and his cronies gang raped teenage girls and at least one adult – Swetnick herself.

The obvious questions started popping up such as why an adult woman would continue to attend parties where she knew teenage boys were constantly gang raping girls. Her sworn statement was loaded with outrageous accusations that seemed to be peppered in with an intended focus on Swetnick’s accusations that Kavanaugh would get very drunk and aggressive towards girls.

It didn’t make sense. Why focus the attention on aggressive drunken behavior with brief mentions of gang rapes? Then, Swetnick did an interview on Kavanaugh-hating MSNBC. Reluctantly, the interview had to place a disclaimer ahead of the interview because she and her producers realized there were multiple inconsistencies between her sworn statement and the answers she gave during the interview.

Avenatti botched the sworn statement. Then he botched preparations for his client ahead of the interview. While Democrats rightly wanted to focus on Ford’s accusation and testimony, Republicans were able to invoke Swetnick’s gang-rape-ringleader accusation to point out how outrageous ALL of the claims were. It played well for supporters of Kavanaugh and left his detractors in a lurch.

It’s very possible that had Avenatti properly guided his client through the process from sworn statement to interview, Kavanaugh may have lost a vote or two. Collins’ indications and history would make her a prime candidate to vote against if it weren’t for the gang rape allegations that seemed too outrageous to be anything other than a smear by Democrats.

If Swetnick had a good lawyer, her sworn statement would have done a better job at portraying the events as Swetnick remembered them. A better lawyer would have prepared Swetnick to deliver an interview that matched the story in her sworn statement. A better lawyer would have allowed Swetnick to be the focus of the story instead of himself.

Do you know the names of Ford’s or Ramirez’ lawyers? I’d need to look them up.

The unhinged left, of which Avenatti is a card-bearing member, will do anything to discredit conservatives. Americans are learning this and realizing they can’t just take their words at face value.

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

Published

The anti-MAGA hoax epidemic

There’s a trend that’s been quietly, consistently rearing its ugly head against the President of the United States and his supporters since before the 2016 election. We’ve seen it among unhinged journalists, virtue-signaling celebrities, and Democratic politicians. We’ve seen it manifest in the ugliest form of hatred – the common hate-hoax – and it’s doing more to divide America than the source of the perpetrators’ anger.

They hate President Trump. They hate the people who got him elected. The hate the idea of making America great again because as much of the MAGA agenda comes to pass, they’re learning they’ve been wrong the whole time. I know first hand. I’ve been proven wrong myself.

No, I’m not a hate-hoaxer, but I’ve been against the President to varying degrees for over three years now. Before he officially won the GOP nomination in 2016, I opposed him because I felt he would do too much damage while delivering only a moderate amount of good policies. He wasn’t as bad as John Kasich or Jeb Bush, but we had Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul as better candidates. Nevertheless, he won the nomination, prompting me to spend the final leg of the 2016 election without a horse in the race. I didn’t like the idea of Trump being President, but under no circumstances did I want Hillary Clinton to be President, either.

100% crowdfunded news. Please help.

After he won, I became a cautious but hopeful watcher. While we worked on alternatives to bring limited-government federalism to the forefront of local, state, and national politics, I took a case-by-case stance on the President himself. When he did well, I praised him. When he did poorly, I criticized him. This stance has remained until this day, though there have been times when I was more supportive or more critical, depending on the policy discussion of the day. Tax and bureaucratic cuts – good. Tariffs and bump stock bans – bad. The recent cave on the border omnibus – very bad. Most foreign policy moves (leaving Iran deal, leaving Paris accords, moving embassy to Jerusalem) – very good.

Unfortunately, it seems many on the left have been unwilling to recognize even the remotest possibility anything the President is doing is good. What’s worse is that some have been so aggressive in their desire to prove their point that they’ve pretended to be victims for the sake of getting their “victims’ perks” of love and affection from their peers while painting anyone wearing a MAGA hat as bigoted and hateful.

Thus, the anti-MAGA hate hoax was born and it’s been so prominent over the last two-and-a-half years, one must wonder how mainstream media and Democrats became so gullible that they fall for it every single time.

Andy Ngo at Quillette put together a comprehensive list of hate hoaxes that leftists have perpetrated to paint the President and his supporters as racists. It’s absolutely stunning when you see the magnitude of the hatred – THEIR hatred – that makes them willing to tell bald-faced lies just to prove the movement they oppose is as bad as they think it is.

I’ve had ideological disagreements with nearly every presidential candidate (let alone every President) since I became an adult. There’s nothing wrong with disagreement as long as one is willing to not be blinded in one direction or the other. There are plenty who blindly follow President Trump to approximately the same degree that supporters blindly followed President Obama. The herd mentality seems to have become the way of the political world in America for our last two presidents. But that blind devotion is simply an annoyance. The blind hatred that drives people to commit these hoaxes is far more dangerous.

It’s likely when the details are fully revealed regarding Jussie Smollett’s hate-hoax, it was driven more by a narcissistic desire to advance his career rather than pure hatred for the MAGA crowd or the President, but obviously the latter hatred played a role in his decision-making process. This type of action is never acceptable. We have enough outrage in America. There’s no need to manufacture even more for false reasons.

It’s time for the unhinged left to stop assuming every MAGA supporter is racist and start asking how the actions of those on their side of the political aisle drove massive amounts of people to support President Trump. Perhaps then, they’ll realize the hatred is coming mostly from them.

6 illegal aliens, rivals of El Chapo, arrested in massive drug sting

6 illegal aliens rivals of El Chapos arrested in massive drug sting

A massive drug trafficking operation by law enforcement in North Carolina resulted in the arrests of six illegal immigrants with connections to a Mexican drug cartel. The organization, which is a competitor of the Sinaloa cartel made famous by its jailed leader, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was operating along the east coast pushing drugs ranging from cocaine to methamphetamine.

Oscar Rangel-Gutierrez, Raul Rangel-Gutierrez, Regulo Rangel Gutierrez,  Rodolfo Martinez, Rigoberto Rangel-Gutierrez and Francisco Garcia-Martinez were arrested and tied to the Jalisco New Generation cartel.

“Members of the investigative team believe — based on wire intercepts, surveillance and other facts discovered from the investigation — that Oscar and Regulo transport illicit proceeds, derived from the sales of narcotics, when they travel from Myrtle Beach to Charlotte,” according to federal court documents, as WMBF reported.

My Take

What makes this so concerning is that Jalisco New Generation cartel is known to operate mostly out of Tijuana on the west coast of Mexico, shipping drugs along the porous southern California border. For them to be reaching all the way to the east coast is telling of their influence and reach.

Unfortunately, leftists believe in Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s solution, which is to stop drug trafficking by making it harder to cross the border at the ports of entry.

Progressives often refer to statistics that show most drug busts happen at the ports of entry, ignoring the obvious fact that fewer drug traffickers are caught when they breach the border away from ports of entry.

Sex offender Anthony Weiner released from federal prison early

Sex offender Anthony Weiner released from federal prison early

Disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has been released from federal prison ahead of the completion of his 21-month term for good behavior. He is currently in a Residential Re-entry Management facility in Brooklyn, New York, where he will remain until his full release in May.

He will be on probation for three years after his release and must register as a sex offender.

My Take

Something tells me this isn’t the last we’re going to see from Anthony Weiner. He’s not only a sick, sexual pervert, but he’s also a narcissist who can be easily made to believe the people want him back in public office.
