Socialist-leaning Dems would like to see the process derailed, but the confirmation of this judge needs to move forward. Pray for Judge Kavanaugh, Mrs. Ford who is making this accusation, their families, & for wisdom for Senate leadership dealing with these allegations. 4/4
FoxNews.com reports that
…As the political fight over the sexual assault allegation made against Brett Kavanaugh intensifies, Democrats are indicating that — even if confirmed — they intend to drag the fight over his Supreme Court nomination past November, raising the possibility of an impeachment push.
Democrats have been demanding the vote to confirm Kavanaugh be delayed pending a full FBI investigation into the accusation by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party in high school in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations and has said he is willing to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
…The midterm elections loom over the debate over the timetable of Kavanaugh’s confirmation process. Should Democrats succeed in delaying the confirmation vote past November and pick up seats in the Senate in the midterms, then they will likely have enough votes to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
However, if Republicans confirm Kavanaugh before November, Democrats have indicated that the fight would not be over are raising the prospect of further investigations and even impeachment.
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., said that “as soon as Democrats get gavels”, the party will investigate the Kavanaugh allegations even if he is confirmed and sitting on the Supreme Court.
“This is such bad practice that even if they were to ram this guy through, as soon as Democrats get gavels we’re going to want to get to the bottom of this,” he said on CNN.
When pressed as to whether he was saying Democrats would investigate a sitting Supreme Court justice, Whitehouse said he was “confident of that.”
“And I think we’ll also be investigating why the FBI stood down its background investigation when this came up in this particular background,” he said.
His stance was backed up by Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif, who said in an interview with Fox News that there could not only be an investigation, but a push for impeachment.
“If the Republicans rush through a nominee where you have unanswered sexual assault allegations, I can promise you that Democratic senators will be interested in going and looking at those allegations, and if Judge Kavanaugh lied under oath, you could see a judicial impeachment, and that’s not good for anybody, so we should try and avoid that,” he said on “America’s Newsroom.”
Such a move would require a majority in the House of Representatives, something that a number of pollsters are predicting the Democrats will secure in November.
The same pollsters who predicted that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 Presidential Election, no doubt.
Gentle Readers, as I sit here writing this Sunday Morning Post and reflecting on the ongoing Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings, I am more convinced than ever that we are not just witnessing a political battle being fought over the seating of our next Supreme Court Justice, we are witnessing a fight for the very soul of our nation.
Depending on the outcome of this fight, parents of the next generation of average American boys are going to have to worry about the possibility that some female may accuse him of “sexual harassment” or “sexual abuse” for simply being a teenage boy awkwardly attempting to approach a girl whom he wants to talk to in hopes of striking up a relationship with.
If the Democrats are victorious in their attempted martyrdom of a politically active College Professor who marched in one of the Women’s Marches wearing a hat shaped to look like a woman’s genitalia, than the lives of not only grown men but young men as well can and will be irreparably damaged simply by means of an unproven accusation.
Right now, Americans are already witnessing Far Left Democrats desperately trying to regain political power by promising “free stuff” for everyone through Marxism, renamed “Democratic Socialism”, and based on a political theory which has never worked anywhere it has been tried.
Now, this same political party is trying to “radically change” our American Legal System by claiming that an American Citizen is not “innocent until proven guilty” but rather “guilty until proven innocent”.
If the Republicans allow this usurpation of Traditional American Values and Ethics to reach the conclusion which the “Party of Special Interest Groups” wants so desperately to happen, then they are no better than the Vichy French who allowed the National Socialist Party of Germany to occupy their country during World War II.
Senator Grassley and the rest of the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, this is not the time for “politics as usual”.
It is time to take a stand for what is right…
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. – Ephesians 6:12 NKJV
