Democrats Immediately Dial Up Another Witch Hunt After Kavanaugh Confirmed

devin-nunes-washington-deep-state capitol Democrats witch hunt KavanaughThe noise has barely died down from the Senate’s confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court — a lifetime appointment — and Democrats are already calling for his impeachment without cause, mirroring the left’s reaction to the election of Donald Trump in 2016.

Readers will recall that almost instantly upon Trump’s win, the effort to delegitimize and prevent Trump from taking power began. First, the effort was to convince the Electoral College Trump electors to overturn the outcome of the election, using now-discredited charges that Trump was a Russian agent.

When that didn’t work, the FBI’s ongoing surveillance of Trump world—which began in Oct. 2016 as an “insurance policy”—was used to foster a series of leaks to the news media, which in turn became leads for the FBI to follow up on, all signaling to the country that Trump was under active investigation as he was headed into office.

A leak about incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn speaking with Russian ambassador Sergei Kisylak in Dec. 2016 about sanctions became an excuse to question Flynn and then eventually charge him with lying to investigators by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, even though the agents that questioned him at the time did not think he lied.

But that wasn’t enough. Trump couldn’t necessarily be removed for something that occurred before he came into office. They needed something more.

Faced with the constitutional conundrum that the new administration was under investigation that had been ordered by the previous administration, Attorney General Jeff Sessions soon recused himself, allowing the Justice Department to in essence operate independently absent oversight by the Attorney General — and continue the witch hunt.

And when the President attempted to intervene — his constitutional prerogative as the sole executive under the Constitution in Article II to lead or conclude investigations by law enforcement — they falsely screamed obstruction, leading to the appointment of Special Counsel Mueller.

Extraordinary means have been used to overthrow Trump, and they continue to date.

Under the Constitution, of course, these measures are all unnecessary. Elections happen in the House and Senate every two years, and for the presidency every four years. In addition, presidents are term-limited by 22nd Amendment. So the constitutional solution is for Democrats to just wait until 2020, run for president and attempt to beat Trump.

Same with Kavanaugh. If Democrats are upset at the 5-4 constitution of the Supreme Court, the solution is to again win elections and attempt to change the balance of the court. They thought they had that opportunity when Antonin Scalia died in 2016, but lacking a Senate majority, they were unable to get Merrick Garland confirmed.

All they had to do was beat Trump and they would’ve had their way. If Hillary Clinton had won, her choice for the Supreme Court would be sitting there right now. But they couldn’t get it done. Now, it’s over.

Which might mean that Democrats have to wait a generation to change the balance of the court, but so be it. That’s our system. Elections have consequences.

Arguably, prior to the current conservative majority on the court, it had been a liberal majority since the Great Depression and the New Deal. That was at a time when Republicans were politically annihilated to the point of near-extinction. But nothing lasts forever. As can be seen today, eventually Republicans regained power.

What the current Democrats of today lack is faith in the system and the patience to see through their agenda. The scorched earth campaign against Kavanaugh proves it.

They do not look to the next elections to solve their problems. They cannot. Scalia and Kennedy are now both replaced and the oldest Republican-appointed justice, Clarence Thomas, is only 70. Their plans are now conceivably years if not decades away.

So they look for imagined crimes and conjure tribunals to hear allegations and it is up to the defendants to prove their innocence, ala Trump and Russia or Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assault. The presumption of innocence has been the first victim in all of these inquisitions.

Never mind the fact that neither Trump nor Kavanaugh were ever charged with let alone convicted of the crimes they are alleged to have committed. Simply the weight of the allegations are intended to remove their political opponents, if stated loud and often enough.

But that is not our constitutional system of laws. It’s just an end-run around the Constitution. If they cannot win elections, Democrats have a history of resorting to extraordinary, undemocratic means to implement their political program. But elections are our safe harbor. The society of laws is a delicate construct; it won’t take much to break it.

It is so difficult to try to follow the Liberal/Democrat paths of Logic (or lack of paths). I have tried to see their side & my brain does not work that way. I sit with my mouth open at the hysteria, lack of or twisting of facts, whimpering & sniveling, & need to embrace VICTIMHOOD. Who wants to be a victim? How can you hate so much that you would destroy your Country? The American Constitution is the greatest document of laws ever written. Do they really believe we would be better off as a Socialist-Communist-Marxist Country? Millions of us are so proud to have leaders like Trump, Spence, Kavanaugh, Gowdy, etc. Thank GOD we still have thinking Americans!

Is anyone surprised? Where’s their “moral” outrage about Ellison, Franken, Clinton et al? To express moral outrage, you must first possess morals. The left, as they constantly demonstrate, are completely bereft of any morals or ethics. Their almighty god is political power and an ever expanding and controlling government. Choose very, very wisely in 28 days. You and your families’ future depends on it…and that ain’t leftist hyperbole.

Teri Smith

Enough already. The left are like a bunch of kids that don’t get their way. And such poor sports. It is awful to watch and a disgrace to this great country.

Cynthia Lemke

There are good people I know that have always voted for the democratic party; I wonder how they feel about the liberals within the party willingness, even eagerness, to destroy a man who has strived to maintain his integrity and morals in his private and professional life. I pray eyes, ears, hearts and minds be opened to Truth.

Everyone should be focusing on our youth. Start holding the parents responsible for their actions. For too long these parents have given in to their children’s demands. Most of these parents don’t know where they are at or whom they are with. They don’t even know what they do on the internet. The youth of today goes to the dark web and they make it sound like la la land. Most of the youth are starving for attention from their family. I praise my son and daughter-in-law because their kids have a lot of things, but they had to earn them. They have chores and are expected to get good grades in order to continue having these things. Most of us today grew up like that. Some of us had less, but we turned out good. When you keep giving in to the demands of your children, you are teaching… Read more »

Excellent summary of the facts. The dems and libs are so over-the-top crazy and stupid, their actions are extremely embarrassing to the USA all around the world. They have to be deranged to conduct themselves in such a hysterical, degrading and illogical manner — and they are doing it in front of the world for everyone to see!! They scare me greatly in regard to the future of our country and the world should they ever gain majority control. Thank God for the reasonable, solid and intelligent majority who are making America great again!

Barbara S.

This is even more reason to get out and vote….a straight party RED line!!!!

Michael

They have no clue as to how close AmeriKa is to Civil War 2.

The Democrats are a disgrace to our Country!. There motto is play dirty. I think it is time for all the Democrats to go jump in the lake
and cool off. If they don’t, God help us with what they will do next governed by their pal George Soros.

Martin

When will the American ever learn that the Democrats are at their best when they accuse others of what they are doing.
Socrates is right.

The Democrat’s agenda is to tear this Country apart. They are doing anything and everything to get control to complete the job. It’s time they are solidly defeated and cease to exist.

Lawrence Catchpole

There seems to be NO doubt about the crimes The Hillary commited. So why isn’t she being prosecuted?? Who is supposed to pursue this?

Kay Rinck

This reminds me of the Rwandan genocide back in the 1990’s. The Hutu’s so hated the Tutsi’s for no reason at all, that they decided to annihilate them. God forbid the hatred of the Democrats for our Republican president, his court nominees confirmed by mostly Republican senators, and our Republican Congress should eventually lead to such a hatred for all the rest of Republican citizens that they would seek to annihilate us. I no longer trust any Democrats, even friends and relatives.

Wayne Peterkin

Fair article and true. My response to what the left is doing against our President and Kavanaugh is to initiate a very in-depth, thorough FBI investigation against every congressional Democrat starting with Pelosi and Schumer. That investigation should begin with their high school years right through today, and any indiscretions uncovered will be made public and prosecuted if any crimes are found. Any! After all, what’s good for the goose… Let’s see how much these lefties support the very same investigations into their past that they demand of conservatives!

Trump made his biggest mistake when he let the Democrats and their press handmaidens talk him into appointing a Special Counsel. So far Mr. Mueller has managed to keep the investigation going well after the original charge of Trump collusion has been showed to be phony and he is wildly searching for anything else he can find (with no real success so far). Why would he be in a hurry to end the investigation when he and his cohorts can continue to draw fat paychecks at taxpayer expense? Any future President should learn the lesson: never appoint a Special Prosecutor (which is not authorized in the constitution) because they can drag on forever with no real results.

Have you asked your senator to remove Sen Murkoski from any committee positions. She is part of this Dem turmoil.

The democRats are already counting on taking back at least one part of Congress to stop MAGA in its tracks. Only thing stopping them is our vote.

The Left can’t be this stupid. They have to be really working on it!

With all of the Marxist posturing of the Democrat Party in the past few weeks in particular and since before the 2016 elections in general the question arises how long a party which, based upon its central goal and and agenda now has at its core the destruction of our Constitution and form of government in its sight can, or should be allowed to participate in our country’s civic life and government? For at least the duration of the Cold War Marxist Communism was banned in the U.S, from such participation because its goal was the destruction of the free world, economic prosperity, and individual freedom. The goal of Marxism hasn’t changed just because the Soviet Union was dissolved; as a matter of fact the USSR’s follow on state is once again taking the hostile lead against the United States in alliance with an even bigger Marxist/Maoist threat in the… Read more »
