For the past week, everyone I have come in contact with says they are furious. I am furious. Anger over the clearly politically driven power grab and coup attempt hijacking a constitutional process that was about to seat a Conservative appointee on the Supreme Court. Granted, most of my circle are right of center. My monthly cigar group is a seething, frothing group of men of a certain age who are incredulous over the blatantly political, rank accusations. However, what has surprised me are those friends who dislike, even despise President Trump, who are deeply uncomfortable with this sad, disgusting chapter in our country’s political history. They also believe this is a horrific political hit job on a decent man.
I am old enough to remember Obama’s liberal appointees — Justices Kagan and Sotomayer — enjoying their confirmation process with dignity and respect.
I remember Justice Clarence Thomas being branded and still being accused of sexual assault with zero proof.
I remember Chappaquiddick Kennedy making a new verb out of Nominee Bork’s name.
Now, for less than a handful of Republican Senators, namely Flake, Collins, and Murkowski, the committee is jumping through hoops to placate these wavering flowers.
Judicial Committee member Flake just suggested he doesn’t believe these accusers are part of a “left-wing conspiracy.”
This completely ignores Feinstein strategically holding the complaint for 45 days before submitting before the vote.
This completely ignores and defies common sense which would suggest the reported 10 teenage gang rape parties would have been reported or discussed sometime, by some person over the past 35 years.
This completely ignores the messenger is the self-serving, vile porn lawyer, Michael Avenatti who CNN and MSNBC seem to have made a media sensation, but who reminds the rest of us of every insulting joke we ever heard about lawyers.
Avenatti is Saul Goodman without the charm. He is Alex Jones on meth. Shakespeare suggested what to do with lawyers like Avenatti in Henry VI.
Sen. Flake, if you prevent a vote from taking place in the Senate, you will cause the losses of Republican seats across the country. This will allow the growing massive Marxist wave to crash onto our land and the cultural impact will affect our liberty, free speech and freedom for generations. The Left has no desire for justice. They only seek power.
SCOTUS is the city of Verdun in WWI and the Republicans need to fight for every square inch of ground. Sen. Flake, you carry the weight of an entire country’s future in your considered vote.Published in
