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.

Swing State Getting Serious, Dumping 100K Off of Voter Rolls

This is the first such cleanup in YEARS.

Published

Over the course of the next several years, America is going to be taking a good hard look at how she handles elections, and things are likely to get somewhat ugly in the process. That’s because we’ve allowed the false dichotomy of the two-party system to stake claims to how we vote.  On the left, a free-for-all.  On the right, a far more serious application of election laws that could be commandeered by ne’er-do-wells looking to massage the electoral results. So, as we head to the polls in 2022 and 2024, we will do so under the auspices of angst, almost undoubtedly, after having seen a great deal of fussing and fudging of the system itself. In Georgia, a massive cleanup of the voter rolls are now underway, for example. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger intends to remove 101,789 “obsolete and outdated” voter files from the state’s voter registration rolls, his office announced. “Making sure Georgia’s voter rolls are up to date is key to ensuring the integrity of our elections,” Raffensperger said in a statement. “That is why I fought and beat Stacey Abrams in court in 2019 to remove nearly 300,000 obsolete voter files before the November election, and will do so again this year. Bottom line, there is no legitimate reason to keep ineligible voters on the rolls.” The more than 100,000 voter files set to be removed include 67,286 voter files linked to a National Change of Address form submitted to the U.S. Postal Service; 34,227 voter files that had election mail returned to sender; and nearly 300 that had no contact with elections official for two general elections. This is the first serious sanitation attempt since 2019, and has already seen over 18,000 dead Georgians removed from the rolls.

Poll Shows Just How Many Republicans Believe Trump Will be Reinstated This Year

The number might surprise you.

Published

Donald Trump’s first term in the White House was far from ordinary, and the aftermath of those 4 years isn’t exactly normal either. This was the point of electing him, however.  Trump ran as a disruptor hellbent on getting results – and at any cost.  If that means that the history books may take a few swipes at him, so be it.  That’s not something that The Don has ever been concerned with. But, even in the sometimes zany political theater that surrounds Trump, there are some ideas that still feel a bit bizarre, such as the continued suggestion that he’ll be simply reinstated as President sometime this year. As it turns out, there is a little more belief in this than previously recognized. Thirty percent of Republican voters say they believe former President Trump will “likely” be reinstated to office this year, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds. The results are comparable to other polling from Politico-Morning Consult released this month that showed nearly three in 10 Americans believe Trump will be reinstated. While a segment of the GOP has indicated support for the idea, the vast majority of voters across the political spectrum agree it’s unlikely that Trump will return to office this year. Seventy percent of Republican respondents in the Hill-HarrisX poll said such a scenario is unlikely, along with 74 percent of independents and 87 percent of Democrats. Meanwhile, 26 percent of independent voters said it’s likely Trump will be reinstated while 13 percent of Democrats said the same. Of course, there is no precedent for such an event in our history, and Trump’s own scheduling of a speaking tour with Bill O’Reilly in December seems to indicate that the former President is setting his sights on 2024 instead.
