Today's Kavanaugh Roundup: A bad 24 hours for journalism.

By Silvio Canto, Jr. September 25, 2018

Since last night, we've witnessed several lessons about acceptable news reportage. First, a new woman emerged against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, but even some journalists can't believe what they are watching. The new woman's story is based on a corroborating witness who wasn't at the party. What? Apparently, he heard something about the party after it happened. Again, what? Jedediah Bila wrote this:.........

It looks as if the second woman's story has more holes than the first woman's story. How can a business continue to be this sloppy? Don't these news organization have editors or people on staff who double-check this stuff?...........Read more

We Are Living Nineteen Eighty-Four By Victor Davis Hanson
Truth, due process, evidence, rights of the accused: All are swept aside in pursuit of the progressive agenda. George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four is no longer fiction. We are living it right now. Google techies planned to massage Internet searches to emphasize correct thinking. A member of the so-called deep state, in an anonymous op-ed, brags that its “resistance” is undermining an elected president. The FBI, CIA, DOJ, and NSC were all weaponized in 2016 to ensure that the proper president would be elected — the choice adjudicated by properly progressive ideology. Wearing a wire is now redefined as simply flipping on an iPhone and recording your boss, boy- or girlfriend, or co-workers...............

The Smearing Of Brett Kavanaugh Is Truly Evil By       
Democratic senator Mazie Hirono has it totally wrong when she says we should consider the assault charges against Brett Kavanaugh credible because he doesn't support abortion. After all, who has a greater need for abortion to remain legal: a faithful family man like Kavanaugh or a sexual predator like Bill Clinton? Women like Hirono who back the sexual exploitation of women through legalized abortion are actually traitors to their sex..............

A tawdry, disgusting, and distasteful week By John David Powell
I received no reply on my social media accounts to the question of whether I missed the throng of hundreds of angry protesters demanding justice for Cosby's victims, even for one of them. Where were the TV talking heads laying out all of their moral reasons why the White House should take back his Presidential Medal of Freedom, or why the folks who hand out the Golden Globes, Emmys, and Grammys should demand he return all of them.  None of that happened. That seemed strange, given the procession of protesters and talking heads carrying pitchforks and torches while demanding justice for the women whose unsubstantiated claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh come nowhere close to sinking to the sick level of the crimes that are sending Cosby to the pen. The lack of moral outrage is its own moral outrage..................

What Brett Kavanaugh means to this country By Rick Hayes
Brett Kavanaugh not being confirmed to the United States Supreme Court boils down to the most qualified judge being rejected. It would indicate the hijacking of the selection process where truth, decency, and due process were absent throughout. And Democrat senators either ignorant of the Constitution or just filled with unquenchable hatred have gleefully embarrassed themselves and the rest of country in front of the entire world. There is a considerable disadvantage on the side of conservatives when it comes to defending and protecting the Constitution against leftist Democrats.  It's like a pilot trying to keep the plane in the air while the co-pilot is hell-bent on crashing it into the sea. When one doesn't care about the place one lives, starting a fire in the living room to keep warm for one night is perfectly fine.............

Is this the hill they die on? By Anna L. Stark
Ask yourself the following question: Is the repugnant and egregious behavior of the Democrats on Senate Judiciary Committee and their enablers the hill they want to die on? Is the hideous, unfounded, but well-coordinated attack on Judge Brett Kavanagh worth it, considering that President Trump may have the opportunity to nominate not one, but perhaps two more people to the Supreme Court during his tenure in the White House? Given the better than average chance that Judge Kavanagh will be confirmed by the Senate by the end of this week, it’s not too farfetched to imagine that future Senate Judiciary committee hearings will be tainted from the outset, clouded by doubt, much more nefarious behavior by Democrats, and punctuated with despicable vulgarity...........

Democrats have viciously overplayed their hand By Patricia McCarthy
This tragedy that became a farce is now a crime, the crime of purposeful defamation of an innocent man. Leftists are so determined to prevent Kavanaugh from becoming a justice on the Supreme Court that they have exposed themselves as the lowlife cheaters they are, without shame or any sense of decency. When they do not win, they will do anything to undo their loss. This is what has motivated the left since the 2016 election. From the moment Trump won, leftists set about their plans to remove him from office by any means necessary. The cabal that put this plan into motion cares nothing for the law, the Constitution, or the people its members set out to ruin as they have Brett Kavanaugh. There are no words to adequately describe how venal these conspirators among the congressional left are, how low they are prepared to go. To this day, not one Democrat has spoken out against this monstrous plan to destroy a fine man who has led an impeccable life. Not one. Each and every one of them knows that this is an odious campaign based on lies, but not one of them will admit to this fact. The Democratic Party is officially deplorable in every sense of the word............

Democrats Have a Gang Rape Fantasy Daniel J. Flynn
Michael Avenatti can’t help himself.  Democrats have a gang rape fantasy. “We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the early 1980s, during which Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them,” cable news personality Michael Avenatti claims. “There are multiple witnesses that will corroborate these facts and each of them must be called to testify publicly.”...........

About Ms. Blasey Ford and the Democrats Gary Lieberthal
Watching the confirmation hearings for Judge Kavanaugh I was appalled but hardly surprised by the rude and churlish behavior of the Democrats. From interrupting the proceedings some 40 times in the first hour, to Senator Harris using her time to run for President, to Cory Booker’s astonishingly comparing himself to Spartacus (Kirk Douglas must have choked over his coffee when he heard that one), the Democrats demonstrated yet again their indifference to our political institutions through their scorched earth tactics..........

Leftist Sliming Rising Michael Ledeen 
As progressives witness the death of their political fantasies, character assassination is all they have left. It’s uncanny the way perhaps the three most distinguished Supreme Court nominees in my lifetime—Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh—have all been brutally slimed.  Those nominees who sailed through, and now sit on the court, are all distinguished citizens with admirable careers, but their places in the legal history of the United States are unlikely to be as significant as those of Bork, Thomas and Kavanaugh. In other words, it strikes me as notable that the best of the best get the worst treatment. I think we’d do well to ponder this..............

Flashback: That Time Joe Biden Said You Can't Rely On FBI Reports Into Sexual Misconduct Matt Vespa
Well, look at what we have here. From NTK Network, a flashback from the Clarence Thomas hearings, who also face allegations of sexual misconduct from Anita Hill. Thomas was eventually confirmed, but by a razor thin margin. There was an FBI report, but then-Senate Committee chair Joe Biden (D-DE) said it was worthless to cite. Why?   “FBI explicitly does not, in this or any other case, reach a conclusion, period. Period,” said Biden at the time.............

Report: Ford's Team Wants to Dictate Which Media Outlets Are Present at Committee Hearing Beth Baumann
In an interesting term of events, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's attorney, Michael Bromwich, sent emails to the Senate Judiciary Committee asking them to limit which press will be given access to Thursday's scheduled hearings, The Washington Times reported. Emails obtained by The Washington Times said Bromwhich has requested:
  • Access for three robocams which he wants ran by "the CSPAN TV pool."
  • Three specific wire services.
  • Photographers from the Associated Press, Reuters and one other identified media outlet.
  • A pool reporter for newspapers and magazines.
  • Space for a radio reporter.
The only time committees tend to place limitations on press at hearings is when space is a concern or when witnesses need their identities to be kept secret................
