It seems like such a long time ago now, but it was only September 2nd, when I published an essay on the Liberty First Foundation site entitled, Coming Soon to a T.V. Screen Near You, The Kavanaugh Crucifixion.
In it, I predicted that, “we will witness political theater of biblical proportions. The worst features of American politics will be on display for the world to see and this hearing is expected to make the high-tech lynching of Justice Thomas and the character assassination of Judge Robert H. Bork look like child’s play.”
Actually, it was far worse that I predicted. The Thursday spectacle, held purportedly to investigate vague charges of sexual misconduct by the nominee when he was a teenager, was despicable and deplorable. We have just witnessed the unfortunate conflation of the “Anti-Trump Resist” movement” with the more recent “Me Too” women’s movement and the politics of personal destruction were on full display in all of their inglorious splendor!
The basic American values of fairness, due process and innocent until proven guilty were recklessly abandoned by a committee of radical Senators sitting in Judgment of a sitting Federal Judge, in favor of a cockamamie social philosophy mandating that if a women makes an allegation of sexual misconduct by a man, it must be true!
Think about the irony of this situation. A Judicial nominee to Supreme Court of the United States was denied the presumption of innocence!
And hanging in the balance of the fight for the high ground in the Supreme Court, is our right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment is under constant attack by the Political Radicals in Constitutional Subversion on the left! So, for those who may still be confused about Judge Kavanaugh, please know that he is a highly regarded jurist who applies the Constitution as it was written and respects the important Second Amendment precedents established by the Supreme Court in cases like Heller (2008) and McDonald (2010).
As Judge Kavanaugh described it, the radical Senators have taken their Constitutional duty of Advice and Consent and turned it into Search and Destroy! Clearly, they willingly chose to destroy the honor and integrity of a highly regarded Federal Judge for political gain, rather than confirm him to be the next Supreme Court Justice.
The Liberty First Foundation believes that there is no place in our Federal government for this type of extremist and fanatical behavior. Accordingly, we implore our readers to do two things. First, register to vote if you haven’t already done so, and second, cast your vote this November 6th only for your Senator and/or Representative who reveres and respects the U.S. Constitution the way that Judge Kavanaugh does.
The Second Amendment will only survive with a conservative Supreme Court! We need to purge the Congress of the extremist radicals and put Kavanaugh on the bench. Please share this essay for maximum circulation.
