Bad week for the Democrat circus

First, let’s talk about the circus at the Kavanaugh hearing.  Nothing is going to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation.  So the question was whether Democrats would act civilly like a bunch of elected US Senators, or if they would go off the rails into crazy town.  They chose the latter.  In fact, Democrats in the committee mirrored the paid protesters in the crowd in their level of crazy.

Corey Booker took the cake with his “I am Spartacus” moment.  Booker tried everything he could to throw his Senate career away as a martyr for the cause.  But surprisingly, he failed.  Booker, in a moment of epic grandstanding, promised to release confidential emails even though he knew the consequences were expulsion from the Senate.  He then released 12 pages of emails that did absolutely nothing but show Kavanaugh as an impartial observer who focuses on complete accuracy.  So did Booker succeed in getting himself crucified?  Not quite.  The emails were already cleared to be released.

The next clown to get out of the car was Kamala Harris.  Senator Harris hit Kavanaugh with a line of questioning that amounted to “have you ever talked to anyone about anything”.  When Kavanaugh tried to clarify the question, she mocked him saying “I just asked it a minute ago, I can’t believe you forgot already.”  When he tried to answer by pointing out that he used to work with Bob Mueller and that Russia is on the news every day so of course he has talked to fellow judges about it, Harris gave up in frustration and said “I’ll move on, clearly you aren’t going to answer the question”

She asked Kavanaugh if he had a conversation, but wouldn’t say with who.  She implied he knew who.  Why wouldn’t she just say the name?  Because she didn’t have one.  Kamala Harris was fishing.

Skip to 5:45 in the video to to get to the idiocy of her questioning.

The anonymous Op-Ed in the New York Times is continuing to make fools out of Democrats.  In fact it has had the opposite effect.  Trump senior officials have been quick to not only deny that they wrote the Op-Ed, but to strongly support the President and point to the successes of his administration.  In fact, the Op-Ed has been such an abject failure that some have speculated that Trump wrote  or had it written to have the opportunity to demonstrate the strong support he has in his administration.

What is clear is that if the anonymous author had any hopes of invoking the 25th amendment to have Trump removed from office as incapable of carrying out his duties, that effort has miserably failed.  The author would have had better luck naming himself and calling for a vote.  But I suppose if he did that, then he would completely destroy the credibility of the Russian investigation, which is his only other hope of getting Trump toppled.  Because it’s Rod Rosenstein.

And right on cue, out comes another Democrat clown.  On Thursday, Democratic Socialist Elizabeth Warren was asked if the President should be toppled with the 25th amendment based on the anonymous Op-Ed.  Warren said yes.  She is actually suggesting that the cabinet, along with the Senate and the House, remove the President from office and put Mike Pence in charge because somebody wrote an anonymous Op-Ed.

Do people realize how dangerous this is?  Our constitutional democracy has survived based on the peaceful transfer of power and the vote of the people.  If Democratic Socialists want to cheat to topple a Capitalist President, then the voters will rise up to restore our democracy.  I think Warren perhaps underestimates the voters in her coup attempt.  But socialists toppling free governments and turning them into banana republics is nothing new.

She might want to consider which side all the second amendment supporters are on before starting a civil war.

Need to know 7/20/18

Fact checking the factcheckers: Politifact had an article out yesterday giving Kamala Harris a “True” rating for her statement that “nearly 2,600 children who are separated from their parents” on June 17th.  Harris also said “these children are in prison”, a completely false statement that wasn’t fact checked by Politifact.  In fact, the very reason children are separated from their parents at the border is the Flores decision which says you can’t put kids in jail.  Obama ran afoul of this ruling and we ended up with the now infamous photos of kids in cages from the Obama era.

Back to Politifact.  The first problem with with their analysis is that this number is a moving target.  The number Harris is using is from July 13th testimony, but since family reunification has been ordered by Trump and the courts, that process continues.  That number was very likely inaccurate when she said it and far less accurate now.

But the bigger problem is that many of the children held by the state didn’t come with their parents or won’t be reunified with their parents because their parents are criminals.  According to Politifact’s own article, nearly 50% of children under 5 were not reunified because they were brought here by traffickers or because their parents were violent criminals.  If you extrapolate that out over Kamala Harris’s figure, we are looking at about 1,250 children who hadn’t been reunified days before she made her statement.  We rate Politifact’s analysis to be 75% biased.

Rumor has it: Tony Podesta is being offered immunity to testify against Paul Manafort.  If you remember, Manafort is in trouble for laundering Russian money to two US lobbying groups.  One of them was run by Democrat and Clinton ally Tony Podesta.  Podesta and Manafort worked together to lobby for the Ukraine in the United States.  Isn’t it interesting that Robert Mueller and his team of Clinton supporting lawyers would offer immunity to Tony Podesta in order to bring down Paul Manafort for the same crime?

Gallup has a new poll out.  Apparently no one cares about Russia.  The biggest issues on the minds of Americans are the economy, dissatisfaction with government, illegal immigration, and race relations.  Russia garnered less than 1% as a concern in the poll.  Seems like Schumer should consider this since the DNC seems to be running on obstruction, economy crushing tax hikes, open borders, racial division, and Russia.
