The Ritualistic Lynching of Brett Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh
How odd that in Democrats historical opposition to Brett Kavanaugh from when he was first nominated by president George W. Bush to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on July 25, 2003, even though drug out nearly three years by Democrats then, there were no allegations of sexual impropriety.

For example, Democrats accused him of being “too partisan.” Sen. Chuck Schumer stating, “Mr. Kavanaugh would probably win first prize as the hard-right’s political lawyer” and “Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit is not just a drop of salt in the partisan wounds, it is the whole shaker.”

Senator Dick Durbin calling him the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics.”

Even though the American Bar Association rated Kavanaugh as “well qualified” in 2003, Democrats pressured them to lower the rating to only “qualified” by 2006.

The far left People for the American Way strongly opposed his nomination to the Appeals Court in a 15 page “report” filled with partisan hyperbole, blasting both former President George W. Bush and Clinton era Special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr.

In 2007, after finally being confirmed to the Court, two Democrats, Patrick Leahy and Dick Durbin accused him of “misleading” the Senate Judiciary Committee during the nomination process.

Bear in mind this was around the time Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer was first vowing to stop the nomination of any conservative judge to the Supreme Court by whatever means needed and Judge Kavanaugh had been thoroughly investigated by the FBI and DOJ no less than six times.

Yet, in all of the opposition to Kavanaugh, there was not one hint of any sexual impropriety of any nature until the 11th hour and 59th minute of the current Supreme Court nomination process when all other tricks deployed by Democrats had failed to undermine his nomination.

And of those ‘allegations,’ every witness claimed as being present at the alleged assaults denies any recollection or knowledge of any such event ever happening.

At best, now four people signed statements claiming only they were “told” of the allegations some years later by the accuser.

Yet another came forward with even more salacious allegations of ‘gang rape,’ stopping short of accusing Kavanaugh of actually raping her, but admitting she attended several High School parties with him.

Why would any female not report such a ‘gang rape’ or continue going to parties where she knew all of her alleged rapists were going to be in attendance?

Even the much touted polygraph results of Christine Ford seem to be on shaky ground and coming under scrutiny.

This is nothing more than far left attacks on the right in an effort to keep courts leaning left by seating only left leaning activist judges that will legislate from the bench what Democrats cannot pass in Congress.


This is an outright assault upon the constitutional process of presidents nominating judges to the high court by Democrats when the president is not a Democrat. Already Democrats are fundraising by labeling him a “Serial Sexual Assaulter.”

Where did due process go as Sen. Chuck Schumer declared “There's No Presumption of Innocence for Kavanaugh?” How are we at the point that an uncorroborated, salacious allegation is all it takes to destroy a person’s reputation and launch all out attacks on their family and children and the basic tenet of our justice system is thrown into a garbage pail by Democrats?

It’s little more than part of a larger coup d’├ętat to undo the 2016 election that Democrats were convinced they deserved to and were going to win, but lost.

And in spite of their admonitions to conservatives to just accept the outcome prior to the election, they have shown once again, it is they unable to come to grips with the loss of an election, but much worse this time than after George W. Bush defeated Al Gore in 2000.

But I must note this is a new low, even for leftist Democrats to keep parading woman after woman, each with a more salacious allegation than the last, just as a previous accuser’s story is coming unraveled due to no corroboration

And now, after complaints that it will be a “bunch of old white guys” questioning the accuser and Congressional Republicans enlisted a respected female prosecutor well versed in sexual assault cases to question Ms. Ford, she is coming under attacks by leftist pinheads.

It must not be forgotten that back in the latter 1990’s as women were coming forward accusing then President Bill Clinton of sexual assault and sexual impropriety, it was some of the same Democrats today demanding Judge Kavanaugh be withdrawn and investigated that circled the wagons around Clinton, even denigrating and demeaning the women accusing him.

Such is the double standard we continually see coming out of the left

Where and how this will end up is unknown at this point. Some have posited it very well may cost Democrats in the coming mid-term elections.

I for one cannot imagine a more fitting outcome for this ritualistic lynching of a well respected Federal Judge.

UPDATE:

Nothing shows the depravity sunk to by Democrats than the words of Senator Lindsey Graham spoken on Sept 27, 2018


How correct Judge Kavanaugh was when he stated, "advise and consent has been replaced by search and destroy."

Oregon Shouldn’t be Given Washington’s 3rd Congressional Seat

Carolyn Long
It’s no secret that Oregon, Portland primarily has for many years tried to control Clark County Washington while looking down upon us as “Vantucky” and essentially backwater, inbred interlopers muddying their version of Nirvana with our gasoline powered monster cars.

Okay, maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but yes, we all know Portland looks down on Clark County, never hiding their disdain for us, but has shown in the past how much they would love to tap into our revenues on this side of the Columbia River to fund projects and policies they have overextended themselves on.

Think Millions of dollars in income taxes Clark County residents employed in Portland must pay each year while not being given any degree of voice in Oregon’s political scene or think of the failed Columbia River Crossing and the Millions wasted as they worked diligently to force Clark County to accept and fund their light rail a short distance into the community with the promise of a new bridge to replace the aging Interstate 5 Bridges. Remember “No light rail, no bridge, no kidding” from then Governor Kitzhaber?

Suffice it to say Oregon has long felt they should have a say in how we operate north of the Columbia River, even though we are not in Oregon and live under different state laws. And unfortunately, by all appearance Democrats are showing a propensity to again cave to Oregon by electing a lifelong Oregon resident to Washington State’s 3rd Congressional District seat currently occupied by Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler, born and raised right here in Clark County Washington first elected back in 2010 to the seat.

Jaime Herrera Beutler
Very soon after taking the oath of office in 2011, far leftist organization Moveon began their assaults on Jaime at a rally attended and taped by this blogger castigating her actions less than two months in office.

Democrats have failed in every election to unseat her and they have had some pretty good Washington State Democrats up against her that just couldn’t pull it off. Even this year we saw three other actual residents of Washington State throw their hats in the ring only to be slighted by their party and local media, the Columbian aka “The Lazy C” in favor of Lifelong Oregon resident, Carolyn Long.

Ms Long’s claim to Washington is her teaching a class in politics at Washington State University from some 22 years. No doubt an expert when it comes to leftism, Liberalism and Progressivism, but who hopped in her car every night to head back home in Salem, Oregon.

That is, until purchasing a condo on this side of the river in July 2017, just getting in under the wire to establish legal residency to qualify for running. In the meantime her family remained behind in Salem, “awaiting a job transfer” we are told.

Long is very crafty in her bio claiming she “grew up in a rural community on the coast,” “Working at her father’s store at the age of 12,” and “working at Safeway to earn the money to pay her way through the University of Oregon.” Other than the UofO, she makes no mention that her history was all within Oregon, other than Rutgers University.

Email campaign endorsements also use crafty language to give the impression of roots in Washington State with claims of her 22 years teaching at WSU, followed by claims of “deep involvement in her community,” again giving the impression she has been involved in issues and matters of concern to the district over the years.

I have held the belief that an elected Representative should have roots within the district, that they have supported the needs of the district, been involved in interests of the district, paid taxes and voted in the district.

Other than co-hosting a couple election night broadcasts on CVTV, I've never seen her participate in council meetings, campaign for any candidate, attend any political rally for either party and never participated in a single Veterans event I have attended on this side of the river nor participate in any Washington State election. Of course she’s much too smart to have voted since she would have violated voting laws by being an out of state resident.

But now, all of a sudden, she is the “Great White Hope” for Democrats in Washington’s 3rd Congressional District?

Or are they hoping she gets in and grants Oregon one of Washington State’s Congressional seats and vote how Oregon desires?

I was recently told in a facebook discussion that any vote she took would be AS a Washington State Representative, but there is no indication in her history that any vote would be FOR Washington State’s 3rd Congressional District over Oregon.

Is holding a job in Clark County really establishing roots and being involved in the community, when every night and weekends for 22 years was involved in her home in Oregon?

Bear in mind that Oregon already has their full allotment of Congressional Seats, so why should they be given one in Washington, especially in Southwest Washington where we have seen many times over the years efforts to tap into revenues from our community to be used and spent south of us in Oregon?

I also note her slogan of “People over Politics.”

Nice sounding words and heard often by politicians that carry no real meaning once in office. Just as her call for more “civility” and “respect” for the other side.



To this end I emailed her campaign back in December 2017 asking for her view on her party’s incivility shown towards President Trump. To date there has been no response of any kind, none, nada, zip.

I have received dozens of campaign emails from her campaign, every last single one of them straight party line, even to condemnations and slinging mud towards the incumbent and Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice BEFORE the hearings on his nomination even began. It has to be recalled that the House doesn’t vote in confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justices, the Senate does.

Carolyn Long makes claims of the type of Representation we deserve in Southwest Washington and making the district better somehow. But she has absolutely no relevant history of any involvement whatsoever in Southwest Washington, never voted, campaigned, spoken before any council, held even the smallest of office, just teaching leftwing politics at WSU for 22 years and scurrying back across the Columbia River to get home to Oregon.

It must be noted here that Jaime has been under constant fire from the left and Democrats claiming she “votes lock-step with Trump.”

She’s also been under fire from the more radical far-right fringe that has been trying to highjack the Republican Party and conservatism for “not voting with Trump.”

That tells me that Jaime is the centrist Representative both sides have long called for.

We deserve someone actually rooted in the district. Someone that has a history of working for constituents in some manner or involvement with citizens in the community in issues and matters concerning the district.

We don’t need Oregon slipping in and taking over our Congressional District seat by fooling voters into voting for Oregon’s Carolyn Long.

I-1639 Must Be Defeated!


I-1639, the most egregious and intrusive anti-gun effort we have seen to date has been approved for the ballot this election. It goes without saying that those of us who appreciate our constitutional right to defend our homes from bad guys must band together to ensure it is defeated.

To that end, the National Rifle Association has joined the effort to see it go down in flame with their website, Initiative1639.org

In announcing the website the NRA said,

“ ‘Law -abiding gun owners in Washington State need to understand the impact I-1639 will have on their Second Amendment right to self-defense,’ said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA’s new website, Initiative1639.org provides the facts on how this gun-control initiative will infringe on law-abiding citizens’ constitutional rights and make it more difficult to protect themselves and their families’.”

Make no mistake, this is but another effort by anti-gunners to completely strip us of our right to privately own a firearm for any reason. Yes, they claim they don't want to confiscate our guns and only want “common sense” gun restrictions, but we are never told just what they mean by “common sense” restrictions or at what point they will be satisfied in restricting our right to a firearm.

It is obvious to me that since they succeeded with I-594, this Alliance for Gun Responsibility has returned nearly every election with yet another effort to further restrict our right to firearm ownership.

After I-594 passed on the ballot in the 2014 election, the Alliance for Gun Responsibility, in an email titled “We’re Not Done Yet” stated,

“Moving forward, we here at The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility will be working closely with the Center for Gun Responsibility to continue educating the public and helping pass commonsense gun laws that will make us all safer.”

Efforts since then have seen degrading and demonizing words directed at the NRA, labeled “the gun lobby” in an apparent effort to paint the NRA as some lobbying arm for firearm manufacturers with no regard to safe operation of firearms.

Any NRA member can attest that claim is bogus.

Of late we saw how signature gatherers thumbed their noses at laws governing petition signature gathering, leading a judge to disqualify the initiative for the ballot, only to see his ruling shot down by one of the most liberal leaning state Supreme Courts in the country.

So it is up to us, law-abiding citizens that appreciate and enjoy having rights other countries do not enjoy that must turn out this November and defeat this aggressive assault on our most basic right. Not only do we need to vote no, we must educate our friends and neighbors and other voters to defeat his monstrous gun grabbing effort.

If not, we may find ourselves facing the same despair as did Venezuela when they allowed themselves to be disarmed for their own safety and well-being.


 Links to articles below

If you think it could never happen here, Venezuelans likely thought the same thing when they surrendered their right to protect themselves.

Consider too an article recycled at left-leaning Vox.com that states,

“America’s attention to gun control often focuses on a few specific measures: universal background checks, restrictions on people with mental illnesses buying firearms, and an assault weapons ban, for example. It is rare that American politicians, even on the left, go much further than that. Something like Australia’s law — which amounts to a confiscation program — is never seriously considered.” (emphasis added)

And;

“What America likely needs, then, is something more like Australia’s mandatory buyback program — essentially, a gun confiscation scheme — paired with a serious ban on specific firearms (including, potentially, all semiautomatic weapons).” (emphasis added)

Banning is ludicrous and accomplishes little but further bans as see proposed in London, England where guns have been banned, then knives as bad guys began using them to perpetrate criminal acts to now proposing banning of cars where other bad guys have used them to run down innocent people.

We must push back on this incremental steps aimed at disarming us too.

If we allow one right to be taken away, what stops them from taking away other rights too?
