Yale Alumni and Staff Hysterically Meltdown Over Kavanaugh…The Reason Why is Absurd

Published

It’s crazy to think that as we sit in the freest and prosperous nation on earth, as the normal functions of our republic tick away as they were designed to do, some of the most privileged and wealthy people are acting like they’re staring down the barrel of totalitarianism because Trump. 

In Nigeria, Christians are being brutally slaughtered. In the Middle East, entire regions are destabilized and terrorized by Islamist extremists. In Russia, it’s illegal to display pro-LGBT propaganda. Even in the UK, once a beacon of light for civil rights and liberty, free speech becomes more limited by the day.

And yet, because our lawfully elected President appointed a Constitutional originalist to the Supreme Court, somehow millions of people are going to die.

You know how parents tell their kids to be grateful for the food they have because there are children starving in Africa? I feel like every leftist needs to have the grown-up version of that lecture right about now, especially the group of adults who penned an outrageous open letter regarding Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court this week.

The Daily Wire’s Paul Bois has the story:

Yale Law School had the temerity to publish a press release praising Brett Kavanaugh for his career accomplishments, which then prompted a furious response from the school’s alumni.

According to HuffPo, “as of Tuesday night, more than 200 students, staff members and alumni of Yale Law School signed an open letter calling for the institution to rescind its apparent support of Kavanaugh.”

Addressed to the law school’s leadership and Dean Heather Gerken, the letter said that Kavanaugh’s “emergency” SCOTUS nomination puts American democracy in danger.

“The press release’s focus on the nominee’s professionalism, pedigree, and service to Yale Law School obscures the true stakes of his nomination and raises a disturbing question,” the letter reads. “Is there nothing more important to Yale Law School than its proximity to power and prestige?”

The letter goes on to complain about Kavanaugh’s stance towards indictment of a sitting President which troubles them considering they’re some of the millions of leftists positively convinced that Trump was involved in Russian meddling despite the blatant lack of evidence to him having done any such thing.

But their hysterics reach fever pitch as the letter goes on:

Some of Kavanaugh’s past decisions that the letter takes issue with are those pertaining to abortion and religious liberty, which give them “grave concern that he will consistently prioritize the beliefs of third-parties over the oppressed.”

The letter presses Yale Law School to find some “moral courage” and rescind its support for Kavanaugh, accusing the leaders of exploiting his nomination for future prestige. If the school does not condemn Kavanaugh, the letter hilariously claims that “people will die,” even though the authors clearly support abortion.

“Perhaps you, as an institution and as individuals, will benefit less from Judge Kavanaugh’s ascendent power if you withhold your support,” the letter concludes. “But people will die if he is confirmed. We hope you agree your sacrifice would be worth it.”

I can’t figure out if this is completely hilarious or bitterly ironic, considering that, on the chance that Kavanaugh would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade (every facet of which is entirely hypothetical), people will die…as though lives are saved by the murder of unborn children?

How can a group of such highly educated people fail so completely at basic logic?

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

Published

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…

Former White House Doc Says Biden’s Mental Health Will Force Him Out of Office

And he did not mince his words.

Published

As soon as Joe Biden found himself on the path to the presidency, the murmurs about his mental health began. Biden has always been a gaffe-machine, providing our nation with a ridiculous number of bizarre and unfortunate statements throughout the years.  But, in 2021, it appears that Biden’s issues are no longer funny or jovial, with many suggesting that his mental health is in a serious decline. This includes a former White House physician, who painted a terrifying picture of where all of this could be headed.  Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX), formerly the White House physician, said Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that he believes President Joe Biden will be forced to resign or be removed with the 25th Amendment. And Jackson didn’t pull any punches. “I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now. And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?” Jackson added, “Where are the people in our academic medicine that were out there calling for President Trump to have a cognitive test? Where are these people? There’s something seriously going on with this man right now. And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now. There’s some serious stuff going on right now.” Jackson’s underestimation of political biases aside, he’s certainly not the only one wondering just how fit Biden’s mental…
