Ok, class, let’s turn our attention to our book, titled: “No, Duh!”, where we will find Claire McCaskill, the outgoing Democrat Senator from Missouri, actually admitting that the way the Democrat Party handled the Kavanaugh confirmation process and his sexual assault allegations might’ve cost her her re-election.
McCaskill recently told NPR that “I don’t think my vote [against Kavanaugh] hurt me as much as the spectacle that occurred. There were mistakes made by my party in terms of how that was handled. I don’t think that communication [from Ford] to the judiciary committee should have been kept private as long as it was. The FBI deals with a lot of confidential information, and that would have absolved [Feinstein] of the very real perception that this was an 11th-hour attempt to gut a guy.”
Okay, there are a good amount of things to go through here.
First of all, I would argue that her vote against Kavanaugh did hurt her an awful lot. Those who voted against Kavanaugh’s confirmation (that is, all but 1 Democrat, who just-so-happened to win his race in November) essentially voted in favor of allowing someone’s entire career and life be derailed by the simple accusation of sexual assault. No evidence is necessary. No corroborating witnesses need apply. If a woman says a man sexually assaulted her, that guy should be thoroughly punished, evidence be damned.
Almost all Democrats voted for that sort of world when they voted against Kavanaugh (and this includes Lisa Murkowski, who is a supposed Republican. No, she didn’t vote against Kavanaugh, but planned to before abstaining). The Democrat Party’s mindset was the utter disregard and destruction of due process for the simple reason that they do not like the guy’s political leanings.
Second of all, the Democrat Party did not make “mistakes”. It was an outright assault on a highly-qualified candidate strictly for political reasons, and their murder weapon was a sloppily-constructed sexual assault allegation, a second, even more sloppily-constructed sexual harassment allegation, and a rape allegation that is so outlandish and unbelievable, it would be found in the fiction section of a library, were it to be written into a book. Granted, the same could be said for the other allegations, but that rape allegation was particularly incredible.
The Democrat Party did not make a mistake when it came to the Ford allegation, since Feinstein sat on it, waiting until the 11th hour to release it. It was a calculated plan of attack. Of course, they still did not have the proof for the claims, but that was not necessary in their minds. With the way the media was going along with it, flat out calling Kavanaugh a serial rapist, evidence was not something they thought they would need. And they came incredibly and uncomfortably close to succeeding too.
Frankly, the only mistake I could see regarding the whole thing was allowing the creepy porn lawyer to release an even more mentally disturbed person to make such outlandish allegations that they practically sunk the previous allegations made.
Turns out that not many people will believe a college-aged woman would attend high school parties in which the boys would regularly run rape trains on the girls and that said college-aged woman would ATTEND SUCH A PARTY TEN DIFFERENT TIMES!
Not to mention that the entire thing pretty much fell apart when Swetnik flat out said she did not remember Kavanaugh actually participating in the raping of girls.
But aside from that, since the main focus was Blasey Ford, whom the Left elevated to the status of a survivor bravely sharing her story (*whispering* after pretty much not telling anyone for about 30 years), one can hardly say that the Democrats made a mistake here. They knew what they were doing and the media was in on it as well. After the test run that was the Iran nuke deal, the Democrat Party figured out they could literally tell the media that JFK was revived using unicorn magic and the suckers would buy it hook, line and sinker.
As a result, they knew that any allegation that the Democrat Party ran with, the media would run with it as well and even more strongly.
Lastly, and just about the only good thing I could say about this woman and what she’s saying, I can appreciate the fact that she is admitting that this was an “11th-hour attempt to gut a guy.”
I don’t imagine very many Democrats, even the ones that have since lost their elections, would be so willing to admit that the Kavanaugh witch hunt was just that. So I will give credit where credit is due.
Unfortunately, the damage has been done. Kavanaugh was so sought after with false allegations that were uncorroborated and unproven that his name will forever leave a sour taste in people’s mouths. Despite the fact that there’s been no evidence to prove even one of the allegations made, the Left, Hollywood, and Democrat voters will forever see Kavanaugh as a sexual assaulter and rapist.
That’s the sort of damage they’ve caused. Sure, he’s in the Supreme Court for life now, but there are a lot of other cases where a man is accused of something that he didn’t do and is punished for the mere allegation. In fact, Democrats are trying to challenge a bill that would return due process on college campus, allowing for people accused to be innocent until proven guilty as it works everywhere else in the country.
This is the path the Left wants to take. Their rampant “feminism” has led to the belief that all women, regardless of credibility or even evidence presented, must be believed at all costs. And the only time that doesn’t happen is when a prominent Leftist is being accused of it (*ahem* Neil DeGrasse Tyson *ahem*). Of course, in the case of DeGrasse Tyson, and even Michael Avenatti’s accusation of domestic violence, the two of them deserve due process and deserve to be seen innocent until proven guilty. That’s just the way it works and the way it should work, regardless of political leanings.
But the point here is that those very same people will ignore that if the target is someone to the Right of Marx.
And this double-standard goes farther than sexual assault or domestic violence. Paul Manafort is in prison for things a lot of Democrats have also done, but they enjoy their freedom. Now, Manafort SHOULD be in prison since he did break the law, but so should anyone else WHO BREAKS THE SAME EXACT LAWS!
Hillary Clinton sold 20% of our Uranium supply as Secretary of State, colluded with foreign agents to steal an American election, and wiped a server full of over 30k emails containing highly confidential information. She’s currently going on a coughing tour and selling tickets for less than the price of popcorn at a movie theater. And even then, the Clintons can barely sell any tickets. If I had any interest in going, I would buy a ticket and wear a MAGA hat just to tick them off.
But in any case, there exists a painfully clear double-standard in our injustice system (yes, I will call it that until I see some actual justice being served). Those who are helpful and an asset to the Left and the Leftist agenda are allowed to break more laws than Al Capone, while those who are a challenge to the Left, a liability, or even a good sacrificial lamb will be punished to the fullest extent of the law, and simple accusations, regardless of evidence or lack thereof, will be enough for them.
As for Claire McCaskill, she would not have come even close to admitting this had she won her election and especially had the Democrats gotten away with destroying the career and life of an innocent man. Only once the dust has settled and there is no more fighting does she come to accept the fact that this was a last-minute and last-ditch attempt at destroying someone they didn’t like.
For the record, I am a little bit surprised that she would admit this, considering she has nothing to gain from it, and I do give her credit for actually admitting this, which is more than I ever expected out of any Democrat, but the sentiment that maybe what they were doing wasn’t right shouldn’t have come in this late. Kavanaugh’s already in the Supreme Court and has been for a couple months now.
I guess hindsight really is 20/20.
