Kavanaugh Case Reveals Demo Strategy for Whole Judiciary

All legal cases are the “powerful” versus the Left’s preferred victimized identity group.

Is this how our judicial system will die?

As things stand in the he said/she said debacle once known as the confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh to take a seat on the Supreme Court, Democrats maintain that Kavanaugh is “guilty until proven innocent” of alleged sexual assault when he was 17. Joe Biden, who orchestrated the Anita Hill character assassination of Clarence Thomas in 1991, insisted that “you’ve got to start off with the presumption … of what she’s talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts.” Other Democrats, including Hillary Clinton (!), argue likewise. For her part, Hill contended in a New York Times op-ed that Kavanaugh “has the burden of persuasion.”

All the while, the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is refusing to testify in the Senate until an FBI investigation is conducted. Her attorney, Democrat activist Debra Katz, first declared that Ford was “willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth.” Republicans took her up on the offer, and now another attorney, Lisa Banks, laughably asserts that Ford testifying this soon would be “contrary to the Committee discovering the truth.”

By the way, the FBI, which has already conducted six background checks on Kavanaugh, has no jurisdiction with this allegation because it isn’t a federal crime.

Moreover, Georgetown law professor Jonathan Turley (a Democrat) observes: “Ford’s demand is, to put it simply, out of line. … There is no precedent for a quid pro quo demand for testimony by a witness. … There are basic principles of due process that establish a right to be heard, not a right to be believed.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) wrote in a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the corrupt choreographer of this cynical charade, that the committee “has extended invitations to Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh to testify on Monday, September 24. They have until this Friday at 10:00 a.m. to let us know whether they are coming.”

As for the merits of the case, we’re not necessarily arguing who’s right. Ford may be correct that Kavanaugh attempted a drunken assault on her in 1982. Men are known to have done such things while under the influence. A classmate of hers said she “heard a buzz about it” at the time and the “incident did happen.” But then she admitted, “I do not have first hand knowledge” and deleted her original Facebook post. Later Thursday, she told NPR, “That it happened or not, I have no idea. I can’t say that it did or didn’t.”

Or it may be exactly as it appears — the 11th-hour staged takedown of Donald Trump’s SCOTUS pick by a Bernie Sanders-supporting leftist. Kavanaugh categorically denies the allegation, as do two of the other three boys supposedly at the “gathering.”

Perhaps the truth is somewhere in the middle. Either way, our judicial system is set up to handle those questions. The court of public opinion is not. There is no due process in the court of public opinion, which is precisely why Democrats want to try this case there. Indeed, Democrats have very cynically and very successfully used the latter to subvert the former.

As Mark Alexander wrote yesterday, “The accusations will, as was the case with late accusations against Justice Clarence Thomas, follow Kavanaugh to his grave, whether appointed or not.” In other words, if Kavanaugh is confirmed, every opinion he writes — particularly those dealing with “women’s issues” — will be tarnished in the eyes of many Americans.

Why does that matter? Because leftists have weaponized the American judiciary to achieve their ends. Can’t persuade a majority in the states to legalize abortion? Have seven black-robed despots create a “right” out of thin air. Fail to win the argument about same-sex marriage on the merits? Have five justices do it for you. And the list goes on.

Furthermore, Democrats want Americans to view all legal cases as leftists’ preferred victims battling some powerful, corporate, white, conservative menace. The merits don’t matter; the “victim’s” identity group does. And Kavanaugh is the worst kind of person — a conservative white man.

Democrats want to subvert Rule of Law with the rule of men. Or in this case, rule of angry women.
