Skip to comments.Kavanaugh and the Crisis of Legitimacy
Posted on 09/21/2019 5:39:27 AM PDT by Rummyfan
It is impossible to separate the latest attack on Justice Brett Kavanaugh from the political strategy of the Democratic Party. On September 16, two days after the New York Times "Sunday Review" section told of another allegation of sexual misconduct during Kavanaugh's college years, "Axios AM" described Democratic plans "to portray President Trump, Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as the three villains defining the three branches of government for the 2020 campaign." The reasoning: "Each of these white men, they will argue, symbolizes Republican corruption and rule-bending.
Because opinions of Trump do not change, the Democrats have decided to rally their base against the two other "white men." That is why all of the major Democratic presidential candidates except for Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar called for Kavanaugh's impeachment after the publication of the Times essay. It is why the media gave the accusation, heard by reporters second-hand, saturation coverage. And it is why Ayanna Pressley, member of the Squad, introduced a resolution to start an impeachment investigation

The Democrat liberals must be extremely desperate.
The Democrats think they are the Legitimaster now!?
Do you really want to start calling people out based on race? Because it won’t end well for non-whites.
DIMS/LIBS must be ridiculed 34/7, confronted in their continuous lunacy and voted-out of every office down to dog catcher. They have no place in civil society. They are pathetic malignancies.
They seek to substitute a whole new paradigm which has nothing to do with the Bill of Rights, limited, enumerated and separated powers, checks and balances, or the primacy of the individual over the collective.
So in attempting to destroy Kavanaugh, they are by extension destroying legitimacy of the Supreme Court and with it the rule of law. Certainly our fundamental founding documents. They are coming ever closer in their nihilism to their goal of systemic destruction. The closer they take us, the closer the breakdown of society into either a Hobbesian jungle or Civil War.
That is because the politics of personal destruction IS the political strategy of the Democratic Party and the Left in general.
Its extremely pragmatic. They are making the case and rallying the troops for rescinding the filibuster and Court-packing - expanding the Supreme Court and Courts of Appeal by at least as many justices and judges as Trump appointed.
You got that right. Here's the affirmation of a putrid Democrap scam:
Nancy Pelosi actually described the "smear technique" in a press conference.
Apparently destroying people is no big deal to a Democrat, as long as it gets them back in power.
In 2017, at a press conference, Pelosi blithely revealed the tried-and-true Democrat demonization tactic called the wrap-up smear.
PELOSI: We Democrats call it the wrap-up smear. You smear somebody, with falsehoods and all the rest,
and then you merchandise it to the media, Pelosi said matter-of factly, as if she were giving out a recipe for apple pie.
SOUND FAMILIAR? This patented Democrat criminal MO was used against Justice Kavanaugh.
Hillary is extremely good at thisin 2016 shed leak what she said was damaging info on Trump to the media.
Then when the smear was published-shed wave around the clipping to show how she was the superior candidate.

CONFIDENTIAL To Democrat Senator _______ ___________
Dear Senator _________:
I am writing to you with information concerning the background of the current Republican nominee to ____________.
As I am a loyal Democrat, I trust that you will keep this confidential from Republicans, especially Senator _________, until we can spring this on them at the last minute with no chance for rebuttal or fact checking.
Also, may I ask that our colleagues in the usual social media companies carefully scrub my posting history for the past ____ years.
Republican named ________ physically __________ me and sexually __________ during ___________ in the time frame ______ to ______ on at least ___ occasion(s).
These acts were performed in front of the following witnesses: ________, ________, _________, and ________ ; although I already stated I was too ________ (choose one) inebriated / frightened / surprised / transported into ecstacy to remember the details, such as the day and year, or even how many people were in the room, I am sure that ________, the current nominee to _______________, was the main perpetrator. ___________ pushed me onto ___________ where he proceeded to _______ and _________, and even _________ my _________ while the others (choose one) did nothing / took photos with their phones / joined in / pointed and laughed /
After a few minutes, __________, the current nominee to _______, stopped for a few moments to _________. The others in the room, who were not victims, but may have been perpetrators, depending on whether their memory contradicts mine, began to ask _________, the current nominee to to "Stop it already, can't you see ______ (choose one)" she's had enough / you've made your point / it's MY turn / it's almost midnight /
I don't know how I escaped, or how I made it home. It's all a blur. I was so ashamed, I didn't mention a word to any of my friends, to the police, or to my ________, until we were in marriage counseling decades later. And nobody in _______ ever talked about the incident, or gave me any funny nicknames either.
I waited until _________, ___ days before the formal Senate vote for confirmation of ___________ to ______, because I felt it my duty as a loyal Democrat to stand up against the patriarchy and for a woman's right to choose. Did I say patriarchy?
I am available to speak further to you about this should the derailment of the nomination of _________ to the ____________ be going badly for our party. Contact me through my local #MeToo local for information on any secret numbered bank accounts if you feel impelled by conscience to make a purely voluntary donation merely to show solidarity with the movement and without any hint of bribery, collusion, or conspiracy whatsoever.
Confidentially yours (Even though I will end up plastered all over the front page of every website in the Country)
______________ ______________ (choose one) New York / Massachusetts / Florida / California
PS Could I please quote you in the three books publishers have agreed to pay me $63 million to write about those nasty Republicans.
PPS And would you be interested in appearing on my reality TV show?
PPS You might be contacted by Netflix b/c the kindly, compassionate Obamas are planning a docu/drama on my experiences at the hands of Republicans.
This one failed. They have other whores ready and waiting to collect their tax free stipend as soon as they release their story about Trump.
If Trump gets to nominate someone for the Supreme Court, they have a few hookers ready for that. If it’s a woman, they will have to be more creative.
If they can’t create their version of Utopia by fair means they well do it by foul. Knowing full well that the road to Utopia is paved with blood.
Wise insights indeed from General Bedford
destroying legitimacy of the Supreme Court and with it the rule of law.
When Democrats put justices on the court, the test is will they rule in line with Democrat party doctrine? As a result the four leftists on the court are utterly predictable on every social and political issue.
Worse, the court has become an extraconstitutional, undemocratic instrument of Democrat social policy and it has increasingly been perceived to be so by the nation. As the perception increases the legitimacy of the court decreases.
As the court squanders its legitimacy, the rule of law is undermined.
Therein lies the true problem.
