Desperation: a state of despair, typically one which results in rash or extreme behavior
FoxNews.com reports that
More than five dozen women came forward Friday to defend Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh against an alleged high school incident, calling President Trump’s pick for the high court “a good person.”
The 65 women, who claim to have known Kavanaugh for more than 35 years, penned a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee to vouch for his character.
“We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983. For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect,” the letter read. “We strongly believe it is important to convey this information to the Committee at this time.”
The women wrote that while Kavanaugh attended Georgetown Preparatory School, an all-boys high school in Bethesda, Maryland, they knew him through “social events, sports, church, and various other activities.”
“Many of us have remained close friends with him and his family over the years. Through the more than 35 years we have known him, Brett has stood out for his friendship, character, and integrity,” they wrote. “In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect. That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day.”
They added: “The signers of this letter hold a broad range of political views. Many of us are not lawyers, but we know Brett Kavanaugh as a person. And he has always been a good person.”
The letter comes amid a controversy ignited by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who released a statement this week saying that she turned information about Kavanaugh over to the FBI. She did not detail the accusation, and Republicans accused her of trying to orchestrate a last-minute smear.
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in a surprise statement. “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”
Fox News confirmed that the letter involved an allegation about Kavanaugh while in high school in the 1980s. A woman who was also in high school at the time, accused Kavanaugh of holding her down and trying to force himself on her during a party, before she got away. The details were first reported by The New Yorker.
The woman also claimed Kavanaugh was joined at the time by a friend who turned up music to conceal her protests. The unnamed classmate, quoted in the New Yorker article as having “no recollection of that,” is Mark Judge, Fox News confirmed. His identity was first reported by The Weekly Standard.
“It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way,” Judge said, adding that he still does not know the identity of the woman who made the allegations.
Kavanaugh denied the allegations Friday.
“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” Kavanaugh, 53, said in a statement.
The White House blasted the charges on Thursday.
“Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him,” White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement.
What Senator Feinstein did was the act of a desperate politician.
According to an article posted on July 4th at LATimes.com,
Though California primary voters supported U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein by a huge margin, state party insiders are readying for a fight over choosing a favorite in her general election race against fellow Democrat state Sen. Kevin de León.
Feinstein, in an apparent attempt to avoid what could be an embarrassing loss, called for unity on Tuesday and urged party leaders to decline to endorse anyone at the upcoming executive board meeting where the endorsement question will be decided.
“Republicans would like nothing more than to see Democrats fighting each other, and a formal endorsement in our race will divide our party at the exact time we need to come together and focus on the general election,” Feinstein, who is seeking a fifth full term, wrote in an email to state Democrats.
The drama over an official endorsement is another indication that California’s Democrat-on-Democrat fight for the Senate seat, born out of the state’s top-two primary system, is exposing fractures among the party’s moderates and progressives. Neither candidate won a primary endorsement but De León came close, winning 54% of votes, shy of the 60% needed to secure the nod. Feinstein received just 37%.
And, don’t forget her fondness for Red China (but never with a blue tablecloth)…
An alleged Chinese spy reportedly infiltrated Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) office by posing as her driver for 20 years, according to multiple reports.
Reports from Politico and the San Francisco Chronicle revealed the alleged Chinese government mole posed as a staffer in Feinstein’s San Francisco office— serving as the California Democrat’s driver, Asian-American community liaison, and stand-in for the senator at Chinese consulate events.
Politico reported that the staffer allegedly delivered non-top-secret political intelligence to Chinese consulate officials in San Francisco. Five years ago, the FBI told Feinstein—who served as chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee—that her staffer was a spy.
The California Democrat was reportedly “mortified” by the news and fired the staffer but did not disclose the news to the rest of her staff.
The FBI could not charge the individual with espionage because none of what he leaked was considered to be classified information, making it difficult for the agency to prosecute him.
Feinstein is definitely from the old school of Democrats.
She has done quite well for herself as a professional politician. However, just like Nancy Pelosi, she finds herself in the twilight of her career, seeking desperately to hold onto what little power within her state and within the New Far Left Democratic Party while somehow remaining relevant.
Through a strategy born of desperation, she attempted to slander a very good man who is destined to be our next Supreme Court Justice.
Her strategy has failed miserably as even members of her own political party are seeing it for the weak sauce that it is.
Feinstein and her fellow Democratic Senators could not make Judge Brett Kavanaugh look bad during the Confirmation Hearings. In fact, he made THEM look silly.
Of course, that doesn’t take much. However, Judge Kavanaugh still more than held his own and looked impressive while doing so.
Feinstein, through her attempted slandering of Kavanaugh has actually provided us with a prime example of the present mindset of the Democratic Party Hierarchy.
They are all so desperate to somehow damage President Trump, to somehow, someway derail “The Trump Train” which is bringing back our economy and accomplishing more in less than two years than his predecessor did in 8, that they will unashamedly slander anyone connected with him in order to do so.
This ineffectual strategy by Feinstein and her fellow Democrats has already grown old and tiresome in the eyes of average Americans and will be one of those responsible for the political “Red Wave” which will occur in less than two months in the Midterm Elections.
Even “Sainted” ol’ Jimmy Carter, himself an ineffectual Democratic President, warned the Democrats this past week against their current political strategy of moving to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum.
However, I doubt that they were listening to the 90-something year old from Plains, Georgia.
They did not listen to us average Americans in 2016, why should they listen to him now?
After all, they are way too smart for that.
Just ask President Clinton.
Until He Comes,
