Demery’s is the bar where SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh got into a fight in 1985. The fracas required police intervention and a member of his party was arrested. The altercation started when Kavanaugh tossed a drink at another patron after a verbal engagement. In close proximity to Yale, the bar no longer exists but was widely known as a wild joint known for its Friday night brawls and underage drinking.
It had been a long day at the U.S. Senate as the Judiciary Committee heard from both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Millions of Americans witnessed an incredible spectacle as both people claimed 100% confidence in their recollection of events.
During the questioning of Dr. Ford, Republicans turned over the duties to an Arizona prosecutor who seemed to miss many opportunities to highlight discrepancies in the statements of the accuser. Of course, the Senate Democrats spent almost all their time praising Dr. Ford for her courage.
The losers in the Sept. 27, 2018 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Donald Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, were the Supreme Court and women. The court took a hit because of the nominee’s erratic showing and women lost, predictably, when they mattered less to Republicans than Kavanaugh’s reputation. The majority’s patronization became clearer over time, culminating in a leading senator’s rant.
I waited for the hearing yesterday, desperately trying to have an open mind whether Brett Kavanaugh had the qualifications to be our next Supreme Court justice. Regrettably, I feel my conclusions are clear and compelling. Judge Brett Kavanaugh not only should be investigated for not telling the truth but he absolutely should not be our next US Supreme court Justice. Here is a rough sketch as to my basic reasons why I now feel so strongly.
As the hours close in upon the historic Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearing set for Thursday, with the Supreme Court hopeful faces eager US Senators, with eyes upon his accuser Christine Blasey Ford and with President Donald Trump continues to slam his opponents, other witnesses, other accusers and other attorneys, the quesion arises--in the political scheme of things, who's winning and who's losing?
Politico and the Morning Consult has released its new survey and it might be called a mixed bag. Taking a hit is Kavanaugh and Trump. But staying in the game is the US Senate. Even if somehow Kavanaugh were not to be confirmed or should resign, if the Republicans retain the US Senate, as expected, Donald Trump will get a second bite at the apple.
The confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh has clearly exposed the horrific antics of left-wing protesters. During several days of hearings, activists disrupted proceedings by screaming slogans and playing for the cameras. Their bad behavior was modeled by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee who continually interrupted Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA).
The White House today touted the Dow new record, the record breaking unemployment and other issues.
In 1991, Clarence Thomas, nominated for the Supreme Court by President George H. W. Bush, was facing unfair and unprecedented attacks from partisan Democrats.
A former co-worker, Anita Hill, had accused Thomas of making unwanted sexual advances, discussing pornography at work and making a crude reference to a pubic hair on a can of coke. Once her allegations were revealed to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Hill was invited to give her testimony. The nation was riveted as Hill, the alleged victim, totally trashed the good name of a man who had spent a lifetime building his reputation.
Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing was set to feature Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett M. Kavanaugh, and Palo Alto University and Stanford professor, Christine Blasey Ford, in examinations of memory, credibility, and teen binge drinking. It’s, probably, not going to happen because Ford has demanded an FBI investigation into allegations that Kavanaugh assaulted her 36 years ago as a condition precedent to her testimony. She’ should to stand her ground since some senators have already found her account wanting before any fact finding.
After decades in the public eye, Hillary Clinton refuses to retire and ride off into the sunset. The woman who feels that the election was stolen from her is continuing to do interviews and make incendiary comments about President Trump.
Last night on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Clinton claimed that Republicans were trying to “rush” the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court. Of course, this overlooks how thorough the process has actually been. He has provided more documents than any other Supreme Court nominee in history. Kavanaugh has also submitted to 30 hours of Senate testimony, 65 meetings with Senators and answered 2,000 questions.
The recent news explosion of allegations of rape being made by a now-Stanford professor Christine Ford against the then teenager and now Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, is raging.
It’s another issue separating left from right, Trumpers from the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd and pro-lifers versus pro-choicers. It has taken center stage. Move over drenched Carolinas. Take the bench for a while Paul Manafort.
During this age of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats sink to new levels of lunacy every day.
As Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) encourages liberals to harass Trump administration officials and supporters, several crazed activists have gone too far. This week, a GOP office in Wyoming was set on fire by an arsonist, likely a far-left Democrat extremist.
It’s not pretty, but it’s powerful.
And more than anything else, it is far from being a witch-hunt.
By now, you good readers will realize I’m referring to the Mueller investigation and its most recent major win, the guilty plea and the cooperation agreement with former President Donald Trump campaign chairperson, Paul Manafort.
I have a confession to make. And President Trump is not going to like it. I’m a southern country lawyer. Darn proud of it. In the President’s words, I may be a “dumb southern country lawyer.” I just hope the President does not have a sneering contempt for all of us Louisiana lawyers who cut our teeth practicing law in the rural areas of the Bayou State.
