Kavanaugh: A Democratic Demolition Derby and Temper Tantrum

The story of the confirmation hearings on Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court has become more about temper tantrums by the Left than about Kavanaugh himself.

He will be confirmed.

But the path the Left has chosen looks more like a failed demolition derby than a hearing for a seat on the highest court in the land---America's Court, the most powerful, blessed, free nation in the history of the world.

Have you seen a 2-year-old in a grocery cart who wants something his parents say he can't have?

Let's visit the hearing room.

But first a couple of updates:

  1. Earlier this week we told you about the California Democratic party chair calling for a boycott of In-N-Out burgers because the company donated $25 or $30 thousand dollars to the GOP state party. He now says, "There is no boycott," it was a joke tweet that he posted at 10:30 in the evening. However, he says, almost 1 million donors have sent him money to help with the boycott. You can decide what to make of all that.
  2. The Christian law firm Liberty Counsel, working with the organization Faith and Action has verified, with photos, that some of those disrupting the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh are being paid by the Left. They receive $50 plus free breakfast, lunch and bail money to disrupt the hearings.

It doesn't really matter what the Democrats and their fans in the seats do during this hearing, Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed.

Cheryl Chumley, writing for the Washington Times, says no matter what the opposition does, "even if the Democrats walk out of the hearing---as some have said they'll do--Kavanaugh will eventually win the seat vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy."

She says, "He only needs a simple majority."

And notes that Sen. Lindsey Graham told Fox News on Sunday he thinks Kavanaugh will get 55 [votes] or even higher. If true, that, of course, means that even some Democrats will vote for Kavanaugh.

No question there's a sense of inevitability on the Left.

Brian Fallon, Hillary Clinton's former spokesman, told CNN, "What's the point of even Democrats showing up. If I were them, I'd consider walking out of the hearing."

Most have chosen not to "walk out", but to stay and make spectacles of themselves.

Why is the Left acting out as they are?

The short answer is, they're desperate.

All the things held sacred to them now hang in the balance---abortion, homosexual "marriage", more secularization of our country, with less attention to our founding principles and the God who gave us freedom and liberty, socialism replacing capitalism, open borders, globalism, ---you know their list.

They have found in the Constitution "rights" that really don't exist in the Constitution. Like homosexual marriage, abortion, celebrating sexual behavior above religious freedom, and so-called "choice" or "women's health care" above the right to life for the unborn.

What's happening translates to why conservative Christians voted as they did in 2016.

Chumley says, "This is a huge win for the Republicans---for President Donald Trump---for the president's Christian and evangelical base, the voters who have hesitated for spiritual reasons to don the MAGA cap but decided, based on Supreme Court potentials, to get in his camp after all."

"Welcome to a solid conservative-leaning high court for the foreseeable future," she says.

A CNN headline summed it up like this: "A sense of inevitability for Kavanaugh, who can transform the court for decades."

The Left's reaction--A sad comedy... the tears of a clown.

During Tuesday's hearing, Democratic senators interrupted the hearing 63 times before lunch and in the audience, 70 people were arrested who followed the lead of their elected officials.

Ironically, protesters continued to shout down the nominee as he explained he has always tried to be respectful in court---"I've tried to be civil," he said.

It finally got so bad that Kavanaugh turned to Chairman Grassley and asked, "Should I proceed?"

Sen. Grassley told him to continue and said, "Let these people have their free speech and interrupt the other 300 million people listening."

Even California Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein, the committee ranking member, seemed a bit embarrassed by her colleagues and allies behavior. She said, "I'm sorry about the circumstances, but we'll get through it."

The demolition derby has also been underway outside the hearing room.

Tearful clowns and agitators who were watching on TV were tweeting false accusations about a Mexican-Jewish woman sitting directly behind nominee Kavanaugh.

They were accusing her of "making a sign of 'white power' with her fingers" so it could be seen on television.

The woman, Zina Bash, is the wife of US Attorney John Bash and herself an attorney who has worked for Kavanaugh in the past. Both have been helping Kavanaugh prepare for these hearings.

Keith Dumas tweeted this: "Who is she? What's up with the white power sign?" @MSNBC.

Medical doctor Eugene Gu tweeted:
"Kavanaugh's former law clerk Zina Bash is flashing a white power sign behind him during his Senate Confirmation hearing. They literally want to bring white supremacy to the Supreme Court. What a national outrage and a disgrace to the rule of law."

These and other similar tweets about Mrs. Bash then went viral to a waiting audience of other tearful clowns.

The "sign" she was "sending" to the TV audience involves her thumb and index finger touching to form a circle, while her hand was resting on her knee.

Her husband, US Attorney Bash, responded with this tweet:
"The attacks today on my wife are repulsive. Everyone tweeting this vicious conspiracy theory should be ashamed of themselves. We weren't even familiar with the hateful symbol being attributed to her for the random way she rested her hand during a long hearing. Zina is Mexican on her mother's side and Jewish on her father's side. She was born in Mexico. Her grandparents were Holocaust survivors. We of course have nothing to do with hate groups, which aim to terrorize and demean other people---never have and never would---Some of the Twitter comments have even referred to our baby daughter. I know there are good folks on both sides of the political divide. I hope that people will clearly condemn this idiotic and sickening accusation."

I personally wasn't aware of "the sign" either.

As outbursts continued in the hearing room yesterday, Senator Lindsay Graham said, "I wish we could have a hearing where the nominee's kids could show up. Is that asking too much?"

As a tearful clown shouted from the audience, Graham asked, "So what kind of country have we become? None of this happened just a couple of years ago. It's getting worse, and worse and worse,"

He's right. It is.

I personally believe there is a greater purpose behind the pain. I believe that God, in answer to the humble prayers of His people, is giving America a reprieve---an opportunity to reset politically and spiritually.

A renewed and restored direction is being forged for our country---one that parallels that of our Founding Fathers.

Make no mistake. There was a significant and public awareness of God's presence in the affairs of mankind.

And a reliance on His help and blessing in the birth of this nation.

Our Founders were aware of their need for Divine guidance because the preachers of their day spoke to the issues biblically---personal and cultural, of their times.

We are experiencing the pain of a rebirth politically and spiritually.

The question is not will Kavanaugh be confirmed.

It's "Will Christian preachers and leaders lead or follow? Will we speak the Truth--- or sin in our silence?"

Will we discern what the Spirit of God is doing in our times and participate, or will we, as the religious Left is doing, join the actors on stage Left and bury the talent of opportunity we have been given for these times?

A talent we have been instructed to manage and multiply not bury.

We will ultimately be held accountable.

Be Engaged. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
