Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court has been subject to the predictable barrage of criticism and apocalyptic language (Hillary Clinton thinks he’ll set us back to the 1850s, for example, which is as hyperbolic as it sounds).
So as they claim millions will die once he’s confirmed and that he simply cannot serve because he once enjoyed eating spaghetti with ketchup (wut), it was only a matter of time before he somehow got sucked into the modern-day witch trials that are the #MeToo movement.
Now, not to belittle the sexual harassment and abuse that women who have come forward during the #MeToo movement have experienced. Very real victims with very troubling stories of very real abuse have bravely shared their stories.
But it is impossible to deny that the #MeToo movement has very much mimicked the famed Salem witch trials, in which it became all too easy to accuse anyone of being a witch and watch them tried, convicted, and punished entirely in the court of public opinion.
So sooner or later, someone was going to go after Kavanaugh with this accusation–and it’s honestly surprising it didn’t come sooner.
Seemingly inspired by the political campaign against Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) who coached a wrestling team at Ohio State while a doctor who would later be accused of sexual abuse attended his team, Kavanaugh has also been hit with claims that he “had to have known” about sexual impropriety committed by a former boss.
The Daily Wire has the story:
Kavanaugh had previously clerked for 9th U.S. Circuit Judge Alex Kozinski from 1990 to 1991. Kozinski abruptly retired last year after 15 women accused him of sexual harassment. Now [feminist group] Ultraviolet is tying Kavanaugh to Kozinski by demanding an investigation into whether the Supreme Court nominee knew about his former boss’ alleged abuse.
“Judge Kozinski’s office had a long history of being a toxic and dangerous environment for women,” chief campaigns officer for UltraViolet, Karin Roland, told McClatchy in a statement. “The American public deserves to know what Kavanaugh saw and heard, and if he did witness or hear about any harassment, what he did or could have done to report it.”
Unlike the rumors surrounding Jordan, no one has come forward to claim Kavanaugh knew about Kozinski’s abuse but did nothing, but critics wrote in a memo prior to Kavanaugh’s nomination that he must have known.
Kozinski was accused of “abuse, including showing them pornography in his chambers, forcibly kissing them and inviting them to have sex,” according to McClatchy.
Unfortunately for UltraViolent and Kavanaugh’s enemies on the left, the allegations aren’t holding much water when you consider how many women have worked with Kavanaugh and have jumped to his defense.
Multiple former colleagues and employees of Kavanaugh have now reached out to defend the judge.
Eighteen women who formerly clerked for Kavanaugh also signed a letter on his behalf and sent it to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is responsible for holding a hearing on Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“We know all too well that women in the workplace still face challenges, inequality, and even harassment. Among other things, women do not enjoy a representative share of prestigious clerkships or high-profile legal positions,” the women wrote. “But this Committee, and the American public more broadly, should be aware of the important work Judge Kavanaugh has done to remedy those disparities. In our view, the Judge has been one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers.”
Indeed, when Kavanaugh, who one former clerk described as a “gentleman”, was first nominated he mentioned how proud he was to have had so many women clerk for him.
Sexual abuse allegations should not be a club to beat ideological opponents over the head with; it is a very real sin against one’s fellow man that should be taken seriously, outside the realm of politics. The very fact that left-wing feminists try to make it political speaks to how very little it has to do with actual women’s equality and how much it has to do with a specific ideology.
Kavanaugh has been the SCOTUS nominee for exactly one week.
Can you imagine what else they’re going to try to fling at him between now and his confirmation hearing in October?
DC Statehood Incoming: House Set to Vote Within Days
Biden and his team are wasting no time setting up ways to stack the electoral deck in their favor.
Joe Biden and his cohorts in the Democratic Party are doing everything in their power to never lose another election again, and they are doing so with all the subtlety and grace of a three-legged hyena that stepped into a yellow-jacket nest. First and foremost, there are their recently-revealed plans to pack the Supreme Court with several new justices during Joe Biden’s first term. Now they’re looking to make good on their long-held pipe dream of making Washington DC its own state…and they are wasting no time. The House of Representatives will vote Tuesday on whether to make Washington, D.C., a State. The House Oversight Committee, chaired by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), voted the bill, H.R. 51, out of committee by a vote of 25-19 to create D.C. statehood Wednesday. But there are likely constitutional issues at play here. The ultimate argument seems to be whether the 23rd Amendment guarantees the federal Capitol at least three electors in presidential elections, Rep. Any Biggs (R-AZ) suggested Wednesday. Biggs’ view is supported by legal scholars, who opposed D.C. statehood’s feasibility without a Constitutional amendment to the 23rd Amendment. The Office of Legal Counsel in 2007 believed it was unconstitutional, the Justice Department under former President Reagan and former President Carter stated the transformation was unconstitutional, and so did Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, when he sat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The move is highly controversial, and twenty-two state attorney generals have already sent a stern letter warning President Joe Biden about the danger of moving forward.
Dems Begin Assault on 2A with Bill to Confiscate Suppressors
Here comes the heat from the left.
When it comes to the right to bear arms, there truly is no foreseeable future in which the Constitutional guarantee will disappear entirely. It’s a logical fallacy to suggest otherwise…just look at how well outlawing guns went in Chicago starting back in 1982. There will likely never be a full repeal of the right, either, as the idea of disarming the American people, particularly as Russia and China grow ever bolder in their international devilishness, leaves the world’s greatest nation feeling like sitting ducks. So, instead of working toward a total nullification of the inalienable right, the Democrats simply work to make if more difficult, more annoying, and more expensive to own the sort of firearms equipment that they want. This year will be no exception. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) introduced legislation on Wednesday to ban the sale and possession of firearm suppressors. His legislation, the Help Empower Americans to Respond (HEAR) Act, is co-sponsored by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), among others. It would ban the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer, and possession of firearm suppressors. Menendez commented on the legislation, saying: Gun silencers are dangerous devices with one purpose and one purpose only – to muffle the sound of gunfire from unsuspecting victims. The sound of gunshots is what signals you to run, hide, take cover, call the police and help others save themselves; however, this is nearly impossible when a gun silencer is used. That is why we must pass the HEAR Act, commonsense legislation that will prevent armed assailants from using these deadly devices to make it easier to shoot and kill another person. Of course, there was no definitive plan as to how confiscation would work, or what the left believes an acceptable amount of casualties would be for…
