Dianne Feinstein Gets Very Bad News About Voter Response to Her Handling of Kavanaugh Assault Allegations

Published

on

Since the first story broke about the woman who claimed that Brett Kavanaugh had attempted to rape her at a party sometime in the early 80’s, it was clear the Democrats thought they had a slam dunk.

They began immediately to milk it for all it was worth, relentlessly slandering Kavanaugh’s name, enthusiastically throwing their support behind his accuser (and eventually, accusers), with no apparent sense of how fake their outrage looked considering they’d been vowing to stop his confirmation by any means necessary for months on end.

One Democratic Senator, however, took the cake when it came to a blatant betrayal of her agenda: Dianne Feinstein.

Feinstein, who received the letter from Dr. Christine Ford about the alleged assault, sat on this knowledge for months, throughout the entire confirmation process, only to most likely allow her staff to leak it to the press just days before Kavanaugh was set to be confirmed.

Throughout the last few weeks, Feinstein has tried to remain cool and confident as she watches Kavanaugh’s life be destroyed.

But voters are unconvinced.

Conservative Tribune reports that not only have the Democrats sat back and watched the advantage they had in the upcoming November midterms all but disappear, but Feinstein has taken a considerable hit in favorability–from all sides:

A shockingly high number of Americans have voiced their disapproval with how Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein handled the kangaroo court — er, sorry, Senate proceedings.

“A majority of voters believe that Kavanaugh’s confirmation process was politicized and mishandled, with 69% calling it a ‘national disgrace,’” a poll from the respected Harvard CAPS – Harris group just found.

Voters are surprisingly unified when it comes to one thing: Chastising Feinstein for her role in the debacle.

“75% of voters believe that Senator Diana Feinstein (sic) should have immediately turned over the letter from Christine Ford to the Senate Judiciary committee in July, when she received it,” the Harvard CAPS – Harris poll found.

It’s worth noting that you can barely get people to agree on whether water is wet, let alone come together on a political question. The fact that a staggering 75 percent — that’s Republicans and Democrats — fault Feinstein on this issue speaks volumes.

In other words, if Feinstein was trying to use these accusations against Kavanaugh, it blew up in her face, and no one is happy.

It turns out that even the easily hyped-up “believe all women” left think it was wrong of Feinstein to withhold this information from the rest of the committee and the public. This is most likely because even those who would be happy to see Kavanaugh go dislike that it appears to have been brazenly employed as a political tactic.

So, whether you’re out there protesting Kavanaugh today or looking forward to having a beer in his honor when he is confirmed, it’s nice to know Americans can all agree that using sexual assault allegations as a political ploy is embarrassing, even for a Democratic Senator.

Trump Channels HBO Blockbuster to Troll Democrats After Mueller Report’s Release

The President’s tweet carried with it a lot of bravado…but was it premature?

Published

Trump Twitter

The Mueller report has arrived, all 400+ pages of it, and the media at large is attempting to scour through it as quickly as possible at this early hour. Pundits are sitting around their special, “big news” sets, laptops ablaze like a well-lit Stonehenge, as these entertainers of “the news” attempt to breathlessly interpret the report in their own partisan language before the President and his lawyers speak on the subject. Trump, however, is a master media manipulator who will invariably get his point across, with or without the television media’s help. Such is that case today as the President piggybacked on the hype surrounding HBO’s Game of Thrones to bolster his base’s belief in him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1118876219381026818 Critics of the President have been quick to point out that Mueller’s report specifically states that Congress is still able to work on the ten instances of “obstruction of justice” that the Special Counsel investigated, despite the President attempting to call “game over”. Attorney General Bill Barr said something quite different in a statement this morning. As for obstruction, Barr said that the report recounts 10 episodes involving Trump and “discusses potential legal theories for connecting these actions to elements of an obstruction offense.” But he said the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation, and that he concluded that the evidence is not sufficient to establish an obstruction-of-justice offense by Trump. Regardless of whether you believe that President Trump is “exonerated” through this Mueller report, it would be foolish in any case to believe that this is “game over”…especially now that the democrats have a hold of this massive trove of information.

The Trump of Indonesia

Does all this sound familiar?

[The following was written by Flag & Cross contributor Steve Sherman.] Across the planet, the political establishment and their mainstream media supporters are being disrupted.  While populist revolts were bubbling beneath the surface for years, the election of Donald J. Trump supercharged and empowered opposition to the ruling elite and set in motion a worldwide reset of our politics.   The next bout in the international struggle against the establishment is playing out tomorrow in Indonesia.  Incumbent President Joko Widodo ran a pseudo Obama campaign of “change and hope” in 2014, riding the then-dominant political strategy to victory in the world’s third largest democracy. Widodo now faces a challenge to his failed regime from Trump-like challenger, Prabowo Subianto.  There’s lots to challenge.   The economy has been stagnant.  Corruption is rife.  And Widodo has morphed into the very thing he ran against in 2014 – a corrupt potentate interested only in enriching his cronies and maintaining his power. Worse, Widodo has introduced into the mix the People’s Republic of China.  Whereas his predecessors resisted the invasion of Chinese capital and personnel, Widodo has facilitated China gaining an historic stronghold in this archipelago nation of more than 17,000 islands. While his detractors have yet to produce proof that Widodo has been personally compensated and compromised through infamous Chinese government payoffs, the invasion from the mainland has severely unsettled his political coalition. Further complicating matters for the incumbent is his inability to deal with religious intolerance in this largest Muslim nation.   While Widodo tries to use the specter of Islamic fundamentalism to his advantage, he is undercut by his own missteps and those of his followers.  The world continues to reel over the pernicious jailing in Widodo’s political base province of former Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, an ethnic Chinese and a Christian.  Purnama has been imprisoned only because he is a…
