The atrocity of the Kavanaugh hearings


© 2018 Jim Spence - “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

Every U.S. Senator takes the above oath. And according to this oath, the U.S. Constitution is the centerpiece of our nation’s governing framework. Sadly, Democrats don’t care much for the U.S. Constitution. It gets in the way of their obsession with making government and crony capitalists more and more powerful. Despite all the security and prosperity our U.S. Constitution has brought, not just to U.S. citizens, but others around the world, Democrats constantly emphasize what is wrong with America to the point of destroying what is right with America. Astonishingly, Mr. Obama called for the "fundamental" transformation of the most successful nation in human history, as if there is something fundamentally better about more powerful bureaucrats and crony capitalists.
It is time to delve into the factors that have made absurd last minute accusations become the political weapon of choice of Democrats. In the wake of an utter repudiation of many Obama policies by the electorate in 2016, in 2018 Democrats demonstrate the same sort of rage they did one hundred fifty-eight years ago when they suspected that slavery as an institution, was living on borrowed time. The Democrat's rage prior to the civil war was also triggered by the election of a Republican. Like their slave holding ancestors, in 2018, Democrats are engaging in increasingly violent acts of aggression that could lead America to civil war. And strange as it might seem, slavery is once again the issue. Democrats have a vision that citizens ought to become the slaves of bureaucrats. Examples of this are how citizens are treated at veteran’s hospitals, departments of motor vehicles, and security checkpoints in airports. Democrats pretend these bureaucracies provide adequate service. Citizens know better.
Politics is mostly about having good ideas regarding public policies. Winning politicians must provide superior historical evidence that their ideas/policies work better than those of their opponents. And in civilized societies, after elections are held, the incumbent losers transfer power to the election winners. And they do so peacefully.
Here comes the problem for Democrats. Increasingly, in America it is obvious that Democrats think it is acceptable to react to their huge losses at the ballot box with violence instead of peaceful concessions. It comes as no surprise that what we have seen since 2016, is hardly a peaceful transfer of power.
The reasons for the frustrations of Democrats are obvious. When it comes to proposing ideas and policies to the electorate, policies that work……Democrats are bankrupt. They simply cannot provide convincing evidence that anything they are in favor of, actually works. This reality began to become pretty clear in 2010 after Democrats were handed control of the White House, the House of Representatives, and a super majority in the Senate in 2008. In less than two years Democrats screwed up their chance to show they had intelligent priorities. They screwed up in an epic way. Instead of looking to grow opportunities for those citizens who are willing to work, they hijacked the nation’s healthcare system and put it in the hands of lazy bureaucrats and crony capitalists. Thanks to Democrats, lazy bureaucrats and crony capitalists still control the healthcare system. While citizens hate what they did to healthcare, Democrats remain undeterred. Democrats want to do to most aspects of life in America what they did to healthcare under Obama.
As was likely to happen, all of these realities came crashing down on Democrats in the 2016 election. And since the news media is composed of 90% partisan Democrats and only 10% journalists, the fires have been stoked and raging for the last 23 months.
This brings us to the utter atrocity of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. Can you imagine being falsely accused by some lunatic prosecutor and being forced to draw from a jury pool consisting of Democrat Senators? Can you say life in prison?
The Kavanaugh hearings were a prime example of what unprincipled bastards do. Democrat’s great hopes for continuing to empower bureaucrats and crony capitalists were with corrupting the court system and promoting judges they know will ignore their oaths. Democrat appointees to the courts, as a matter of routine, can be counted on to refuse to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Make no mistake, Donald Trump dashed these putrid hopes. Accordingly, you don't have to like Trump the person, to like what he has done. Putrid hopes should be dashed.
Next month the American people will once again have a choice in the mid-term elections. They can not only deny support for those who refuse to defend the Constitution of the United States, they can also talk to the undecided in their ranks and help them understand what is at stake.
In the end, the atrocity of the Kavanaugh hearings served as an alarming illustration of the depth of evil out there. America has  too many sleaze balls in the U.S. Senate, including both New Mexico senators, who rank among the most unprincipled elected officials in America.
