Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s opening statement after Dr. Ford’s testimony laid waste to Democrats who have targeted him in the past weeks with uncorroborated allegations from 36 years in his past. Allegations in which every named witness has outright refuted the claims. But the facts that refute Dr. Ford’s story seemed not to have ever entered the psyche of Senate Democrats, not for one second. They saw the allegations as a way to achieve their desired political outcome, nothing more.
There was no desire to search for the truth on behalf of Democrats. We know this because when there was a search for the truth in the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats refused to join in. Instead, Democrats stayed on the sidelines because they knew if they got to the truth, they would have dulled their newly fashion shiv into a conspiratorial talking point.
Democrats are now seizing on Kavanaugh’s opening statement following Dr. Ford’s testimony in order to make him appear to be politically biased in favor of Republicans.
Now, if Democrats didn’t deploy a full-on smear campaign to not only destroy Kavanaugh’s nomination but his entire life, then I would agree that they are voicing a legitimate concern. But that is now how the process played out.
“When I did at least O.K. enough at the hearings that it looks like I might actually get confirmed, a new tactic was needed. Some of you were lying in wait and had it ready. This first allegation was held in secret for weeks by a Democratic member of this committee and by staff. It would be needed only if you couldn’t take me out on the merits. When it was needed, this allegation was unleashed and publicly deployed over Dr. Ford’s wishes.”

There is nothing politically biased about stating the facts and recognizing how this process was handled. After they failed to take Judge Kavanaugh out on the merits, Democrats in either Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) office or Representative Eshoo’s (D-CA) office leaked Dr. Ford’s confidential letter to The Intercept. Both The Intercept and Senator Dianne Feinstein have denied that the leak came from Feinstein’s office. The timing was calculated and deliberate. The one thing about the leak we can be sure of is that it came from the Democrats’ side of the aisle and that it was leaked for the sole purpose of being fashioned into a political weapon.
Feinstein had the letter on the day in which she interviewed judge Kavanaugh during the confirmation process however, she failed to bring the matter up visa vis. The decision not to ask Kavanaugh about the allegations either stemmed from her inability to believe the allegations due to their unsubstantiated nature or she was keeping it in her back pocket in order to leak it at a time that would inflict the most harm and force a delay. Either way, we will afford Senator Feinstein the presumption of innocence and allow this process to play out, as it does appear the Senate Judiciary Committee will be investigating the matter further.
“And then, and then, as no doubt was expected, if not planned, came a long series of false last-minute smears designed to scare me and drive me out of the process before any hearing occurred. Crazy stuff. Gangs, illegitimate children, fights on boats in Rhode Island. All nonsense. Reported breathlessly and often uncritically by the media. This has destroyed my family and my good name. A good name built up through decades of very hard work and public service at the highest levels of the American government.”

The only people who were attempting to destroy judge Kavanaugh were Democrats and the propaganda arm of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the mainstream media. They used cheap tactics and false claims of sexual assault, all of which they fully embraced without batting a lash, in order to achieve a political outcome. The allegations got more and more unbelievable as they mounted up. The only reoccurring theme about every allegation is that it happened over 35 years prior and could not be substantiated in any way-shape or form. Democrats and those in the mainstream media refused to afford Judge Brett Kavanaugh the same presumption that he affords every defendant that has come before his bench, the presumption of innocence.
“This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups.
This is a circus. The consequences will extend long past my nomination. The consequences will be with us for decades. This grotesque and coordinated character assassination will dissuade confident and good people of all political persuasions from serving our country. And as we all know in the United States political system of the early 2000s, what goes around comes around.”

The smears that were unleashed on Judge Kavanaugh were fully embraced by “The Resistance,” as they descended upon Washington D.C. in order to physically intimidate Republican Senators in voting against the Kavanaugh confirmation. America’s political left has fully embraced mob mentality to the point of onlookers drawing direct comparisons between their treatment of Judge Kavanaugh and Arthur Miller’s adaptation of the Salem Witch Trials, The Crucible.
Many Democrats are claiming that Kavanaugh made a veiled threat with the phrase, “what comes around goes around.” Of course, the phrase must be taken out of context in order to be considered a threat. Kavanaugh’s opening statement was very clear and contained no threats. Kavanaugh’s words “what goes around comes around” was his characterization of the treatment he was getting from the political left as a result of his past prosecutorial work. Kavanaugh was simply saying that his work as a prosecutor on the White Water scandal was a motivating reason for the Democrats’ smear campaign. The White Water scandal ultimately lead to President Clinton’s impeachment in the United States House of Representatives.
Judge Kavanaugh was incorrect about the process being a circus, because a circus is appropriate for audiences of all ages. This was much worse than a circus and if it were to be adapted into a movie it would garner a XXX rating. It was an outright disgrace that will certainly tarnish our shining city on the hill for decades to come. And that stain was incurred by one political party and one party only, the Democratic Party.
We often hear liberals accusing President Trump of being an authoritarian however, one of the most common themes among those who truly are authoritarian is the abrogation of the presumption of innocence; accuse those who stand in your political path, presume them guilty, and force them to prove a negative. The Democratic Party attempted to abrogate the presumption of innocence in pursuit of a political outcome. This is truly a chilling harbinger of what to expect should Democrats win back power. What happens when Democrats do get voted into power and the average American stands in their political path? What will happen then? If they are willing to run roughshod over Brett Kavanaugh’s rights in pursuit of political power, don’t think for a single moment they won’t do the same to you and your family.
Kavanaugh’s Thursday opening statement, laying waste to the Democrats who have targeted him and his family, shows he has the ability to see through the political tactics used to veil the reality which stands before him.
With his opening statement, Kavanaugh was able to prove that he can identify the petty political swamp for what it is. Democrats made it very clear that they had a desire to seek and destroy with regard to Judge Kavanaugh and he was able to recognize that reality and call it out before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Brett Kavanaugh should not be criticized for seeing through a facade and voicing the truth, regardless of how blind Democrats are to the reality that they have created.
