The Battle of Stalingrad was lengthy, dramatic, and decisive. Both belligerents through everything they could to win. In the end, the Soviets won, and the victory, paired with the equally critical victory in Moscow, paved the way for many victories to come. The Republicans look as though they are facing the same outcome as the Soviets but in the realm of political theater instead of a war between two socialist ideologies. Brett Kavanaugh will fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court after a long and heated battle with the self proclaimed resistance.
The battle appeared to be dramatic from the start. With all the votes and election hype in play, Mike Pence casting a tiebreaking vote was well within the realm of possibilities. Yet the confirmation hearings went smoothly. Despite Democrat outcries about information, Kavanaugh was passing with flying colors making it difficult for Democrats to resist the Trump nominee in an election year. In the eleventh hour, the Democrats and their allies unleashed an attempted rape allegation in an effort to torpedo the Kavanaugh Hearings. The Democrats, media, Twitter, and Hollywood all joined forces to take down Kavanaugh who, at the time, stood to win at least three Democrats. The Republicans led by Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley responded by tactfully catering to Democrat demands. What’s the rush? As long as he’s confirmed before election day, the difference between mid September and early October is nominal in the long run.
The Democrats wanted to delay the vote to explore the claims they hid for so long. Republicans agreed. They led an investigation and held a hearing. But that wasn’t enough. The Democrats further wanted to stall by calling for an additional FBI investigation. McConnell and Trump agreed and called for a supplemental investigation. Of course, they weren’t happy with it. Now they lost a cloture vote and every Senator has a stated position. The Republicans narrowly confirm Brett Kavanaugh.
Ask any racer, any real racer. It don’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning’s winning.
They threatened the presumption of innocence as well as impartial deliberation. The Democrats rejected reasoning and accountability. They embraced sexism, ire, and bullying tactics. The Republicans embraced due process, bipartisanship, and patience. The Republicans also strongly stood their ground in what they thought was right. The optics of the situation reflect well on the Republicans. The Republicans managed to gain a sense of unity and leadership they’ve lacked for much of Trump’s term. In an earlier post, I elaborated on Mitch McConnell’s greatest attribute as Senate Majority Leader: his shrewd command in confirming or rejecting Supreme Court nominees. After being a leading voice in the Kavanaugh confirmation battle, Mitch McConnell delivered the vote. McConnell was patient enough to make sure that he had the votes before proceeding with the vote. Conservatives must take the time to appreciate this tact. Without it, the GOP would have been betrayed by its worst Senators. Without it, the confirmation failure would have dealt a major blow to morale with the election upon us. The GOP could not afford that loss, and instead shifted momentum back on their side. According to an NPR poll, the Democrats’ enthusiasm gap is statistically evaporated. The GOP base is fired up, Kavanaugh is shoved ideologically to the right, and leftist tears are flowing, and red state Democrats are in a tough predicament. So much winning and all of it is the result of the GOP winning this political Stalingrad. This victory will lead to midterm victories as well as SCOTUS victories.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
