Will there be consequences?

Democrats ask for the FBI and now they’d better be prepared for the consequences. Ed Timperlake – “America will live through this week long FBI “sprint” trying to shed as much light on the most infamous “He said/She” said moment in American history.”

“More than a few of our elected officials have a very nasty character trait in that everyone is expendable in their keeping power.

The vicious enemies of Judge Kavanaugh got what they asked for, now the FBI is involved, and it is time for sunlight, transparency, and possible legal payback.

Many commentators speculate that after the FBI finishes their week-long investigation, Americans will not know any more than they did after the Hearing. I bet that is true for Judge Kavanaugh: his words personified “the truth is the truth” However, for many of his nasty enemies in one of the ugliest conspiracies in American history, their day of reckoning may be fast approaching.

Sheldon’s Folly – Chairman Chuck Grassley Requests Criminal Investigation of Kavanaugh Accuser Jeffrey Catalan. Sundance – “Mr. Jeffrey Catalan accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting a woman on a boat in Rhode Island. Mr. Catalan first sent the accusation to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, one of the primary Democrat operatives who was helping to construct the attacks against Judge Kavanaugh.”

“Grassley has called on the Justice Department and the FBI to review the matter as a possible violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1001 and 1505, portions of the U.S. code criminalizing the sharing of materially false information with committee investigators and obstruction of proceedings of congressional committees.

Healthy Shame Woefully Absent in Washington, DC. Brian C. Joondeph – “Righteous and appropriate indignation was on full display at last week’s Senate hearing over sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”

“How did the Senate process of “advise and consent” deteriorate into a Supreme Court nominee having to detail his teenage sexual chastity on an international media stage?

Shaming a guiltless person before others inflicts humiliation, disgrace, and disrepute on an entire family – shame without guilt. This is what the left has been throwing at Judge Kavanaugh and his family for weeks, shaming him through allegations and insinuations of being a sexual predator, a rapist, an alcoholic, even a pedophile, along with death threats to him and his family.

What is obvious is that the American left has no shame, no conscience.

What drives such hatred and lack of healthy shame, conscience, or human decency?

Now these senators demand another FBI background check, the seventh for Kavanaugh, a background check that many of them would not pass.

As an aside, did anyone notice that President Trump had no reluctance or objection to another FBI background check – that in fact, he seemed eager? Such investigations can go both ways. The accusers may also find themselves investigated, as well as those who financed and abetted them. What if the FBI uncovers some surprises or perjury?

The Moral-Panic Phase. Jonah Goldberg – “Why is the Kavanaugh nomination causing people to lose their minds?” Goldberg, slowly and reluctantly, seems to be ‘finding his way to Jesus’ – maybe. Here’s a letter filled with angst.

“finally, there was a left–right fight about which I am largely un-conflicted. This wasn’t a brouhaha about Trump or any of the usual stuff. The issue here was that the Democrats and their abettors in the media simply behaved atrociously.

I actually agree that Kavanaugh’s anger towards Democrats in the hearing — though morally and emotionally justified — isn’t a good thing over the long run if he were to make it on the Court. But this idea that he can’t be a Supreme Court justice because he wasn’t dispassionate in the face of multiple bogus allegations that he’s a rapist is both grotesque and grotesquely dumb.

contrary to the tsunami of smug sorrowful opining, judges are not expected to be cold and dispassionate in the face of charges about themselves. That’s why they recuse themselves from cases in which they have personal interests.

It’s no secret that I’m a Trump critic, but I do my best to stay rational and fair about it. … when you actually look at how the Democrats have behaved . . . Great Odin’s Raven, I don’t want anything to do with any of that.

you can’t blame him [Trump] for Democrats believing that Brett Kavanaugh ran a rape gang in high school. Nor can you blame Trump for all of the liberals who know it must be a lie and refuse to say so. That’s on them.

I truly and sincerely don’t want to make light of sexual assault. Rape is evil. Which also means that false accusations of rape are evil. And treating each additional, wholly unverified accusation as if it is more proof is evil.

Anti-Kavanaugh media and Hollywood bias explodes in a bad week for America. Dan Gainor – “Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh was targeted for demonization in a disgusting display of media malpractice this past week, as he was depicted in almost every disparaging way possible in coverage of uncorroborated sexual misconduct allegations against him.”

“The bias was so bad all week that conventional media spin was shoved aside and countless smaller examples of a craven media culture went largely ignored. One such example is The New York Times apologizing for asking readers if they found Ford’s “testimony credible.” This is the woke era, and even the most liberal paper in America can’t ask such blasphemous questions.

Empathy, Accuracy, and Credibility. Victor Davis Hanson – “The “process” of memorializing Ford’s testimony involved a strange inversion of constitutional norms:”

“The idea of a statute of limitations is ossified; hearsay is legitimate testimony; inexact and contradictory recall is proof of trauma, and therefore of validity; the burden of proof is on the accused, not the accuser; detail and evidence are subordinated to assumed sincerity; proof that one later relates an allegation to another is considered proof that the assault actually occurred in the manner alleged; motive is largely irrelevant; the accuser establishes the guidelines of the state’s investigation of the allegations; and the individual allegation gains credence by cosmic resonance with all other such similar allegations.

The lesson of the hearings transcends the Kavanaugh confirmation. We were presented with two radically different and now competing versions of American jurisprudence and due process, one traditional and constitutional, one fluid and revolutionary. It will be up to Americans, ultimately, to decide by which version they wish to conduct their lives.

Dear Senators Flake, Collins, and Murkowski. Derek Hunter – “I call it a battle rather than a process because it is a battle, a fight, even a war. I know each of you think you’re doing your best to stave off that war, but you’re only making it more likely.”

“The same people who’ve been threatening all of you and your staffs are the same people you’re hoping to placate. There is no process that ends with anything other than what they want that will quell this angry mob.

What will be enough for people who verbally attacked Senator Ted Cruz and his wife in a restaurant? Or Secretary Kristjen Neilson? Or anyone else with an (R) as their political affiliation who’s been on the receiving end of the liberal mob’s rage?

Unless everyone named by Dr. Ford was, under penalty of felony, lying to you and the press, the FBI will return quickly with the same statements you’ve already read.

There is nothing remotely resembling proof of anything alleged, yet these partisan guttersnipes don’t care, they want his head because they are terrified he reveres the Constitution.

The Democrats’ playbook is to keep people in an emotional frenzy over everything to prevent rational thought. Have you heard widespread condemnation of Republicans being confronted in public by Democratic leaders? Passive, yes, but consistent rebuking of each event? No, you have not.

I wrote a book on this very subject. I’d send each of you copies, but I know how the Senate mail system works and how the radiation used to render any chemical or biological agents harmless destroys paper. But trust me, none of this is spontaneous, and none of this will end as long as there are people who stand in their way.

Life in a Gynocracy. Clarice Feldman – “The performance of women this week – from Senator Dianne Feinstein to Christine Blasey Ford to the howling mobs on Capitol Hill – made me seriously consider surgically altering my sex.”

“Or maybe, like me, you can vow to never vote for a Democrat again and fight tooth and nail against such efforts to distort our constitutional rights to due process.

Pedophilia Isn’t The Main Problem With Catholic Priests, Homosexuality Is. Maureen Mullarkey – “Inadequate—and blameworthy—are expressions of sympathy for the abused that disguise the elephant in the rectory. The first responsibility is to call things by their right name.” A story of a consequence that can’t be ignored but must be rationalized somehow. Misdirection etc provided a comfortable start but hasn’t solved the problem.

“To casual readers, duly angered, the Times’ charge sounds about right. More thoughtful ones, however, will hesitate over the word pedophilia. With few exceptions, sexual abuse by priests has been visited overwhelmingly upon pubescent boys, and young men, most often teenagers. This is pederasty, not pedophilia. And pederasty is endemic to gay culture.

Homosexuality has been normalized, officially approved, ratified, and okayed. Since the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from the roster of mental disorders in 1973, activists have parlayed homosexuals into a protected species, more like black rhinos or orangutans than moral beings. The church’s ancient description of homosexuality as an “objective disorder” is dismissed as the last gasp of the 19th-century Society for the Suppression of Vice.

Down the centuries, stigma against same-sex activity—and all non-marital sex—was universally accepted by a society that was Christian by birth, including those to whom censure applied.

Those constraints are gone, the brakes shot. They have been psychologized and conjured out of existence.

Much denial. Evasion. Avoidance. … Consequences?
