Democrats Just Blindsided By Congress – Orders Investigation Into Their Dirty Secrets

Published

on

“Turn around is fair play.” I was an adult before I ever heard – or at least before I heard and took note of – that saying.   I was more of a “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” kinda guy. But they both mean the same thing, I discovered: “The rules that apply to me also apply to thee.”

There are, let me say, limits to the application of this axiom. Not everything is allowed under color of so-called “political warfare”, or just because the other side does it. “Blood sport” is not automatically legitimized merely because it’s carried out in the pay of winning an election or cause.

It Is undeniably true, however, that when partisans take a particular tack against their ideological adversaries or inconvenient opposition, those decisions often can come back to bite them — and should.

King David, who knew a thing or two about facing ruthless antagonism from others, once penned these words: “They have prepared a net for my steps … They have dug a pit before me; Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen.” (Psalm 57:6)

Well, well — looks like some falling- into-the-net-they-laid might be on the way for the Democrats’ who aimed to ruin Brett Kavanaugh’s life.

BPR’s Tom Tillison has this to say: “While the media is all over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, uncovering scandalous actions like he once threw ice at someone in a bar, there seems to be no intellectual curiosity on their part to how accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s letter was leaked.”

“A letter that was in the possession of Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., chief architect of the 11th hour ambush of Kavanaugh, who may now have reason to be nervous.”

“Republicans plan to investigate Feinstein’s office to determine whether they leaked Ford’s confidential letter, according to Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.”

“Feinstein has denied that she or any of her staff is responsible for the letter getting out to the press.”

“Feinstein did push back against the GOP on the news her office will be investigated in a statement released on Monday.”

“ ‘President Trump and Senate Republicans are trying to deflect attention from Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegations by saying my staff or I leaked the letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — they’re wrong,’ said the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee.”

“ ‘I honored Dr. Blasey Ford’s request for confidentiality,’ Feinstein added. ‘It was only when reporters were knocking on her door that I referred the letter to the FBI. At no point did I or anyone on my staff divulge Dr. Blasey Ford’s name to press.’ “

“She then tried to flip the narrative, inaccurately saying that she was criticized for not releasing the letter she held all throughout Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.”

“ ‘I find it interesting that the same critics who last week condemned me for not releasing Dr. Blasey Ford’s letter against her wishes are now suggesting I did leak the letter,’ Feinstein stated. “

“But the criticism was more specific to informing the Judiciary Committee of the very serious accusation to allow it to be properly investigated, instead of springing it at the last moment.”

“During his appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Cotton said Democrats ‘betrayed’ Ford.”

“ ‘She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.’ “

“Oh, by the way, now that Democrats have the FBI investigation they wanted, they’re calling for it to be expanded — all of which proves there’s no winning with this cabal.”

A preacher I particularly like shared a story one time about his grandmother’s incurably sunny disposition: “Grandma, I believe you could even find something positive to say about the devil,” he chided her one day.

“Well,” she replied, “his is persistent, isn’t he.”

I often reflect on those words when contemplating the political and cultural Left: they simply do not give up. If they can’t win at the ballot box, they aim at victory by shanghaiing the courts – local, state or federal. If they can’t shoot down a Supreme Court nominee via attacks on his judicial record or views, they switch tactics to directing scurrilous and dubious charges against him.  Hey, whatever it takes, right?

But just because “Democrat” begins with a “D” doesn’t mean determination should be their sole preserve. I mean, “Republican” and “resolution” also kick off with the same letter as well, right? Turn around is fair play …

Again, “whatever it takes” is not a standard which decent people embrace – there are limits on what honor permits. Still, when the anti-American, anti-Liberty, anti-God ranks of modern progressivism begin playing political hardball, it’s often time for those opposing them to hold them to their own set of rules – and not back off.

It’s certainly not a call to throw in the towel, to surrender to the inevitability of it all. That’s exactly what the forces arrayed against a judge who, by all trustworthy indicators, is a decent man – Brett Kavanaugh – were counting on. They count on it regularly: hoping to wear out those who stand in their way.

That option principled persons cannot permit to happen.

So, in this case, the scoundrels among Senate Democrats – and that comprises an awful lot of people — wanted to take Brett Kavanaugh and his boosters through the investigative ringer? It’s time to subject some of them to the same.

Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES As it Approaches Border

Amazing how this happens mere weeks before the midterm elections.

Time to put military on full alert and stationed at the border. This is an invasion and needs to be stopped in its tracks AT the border.

Stop the invasion!

From The Gateway Pundit:

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trump’s warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Part of the caravan, which has split into two groups, is now approaching the Mexico-Guatemala border amidst a surge in border crossings on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, where plans to stop the caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion, according to a senior State Department official who spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

“I am certain that there will be conversations in Mexico about how we can work together on this issue,” the official said about the caravan. “We are certainly looking for concrete results and for solutions that work for both countries.”

President Trump didn’t even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

The President’s fury continued into late Tuesday evening as he fired off another pair of tweets putting Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador on notice.

Anyone entering illegally will be arrested and detained prior to being sent back to their country, President Trump said.

Democrats Just Announce Sick New Way They Plan To Dominate GOP In Midterms To Regain Control

Yet another perfect example if the tyrannical nature of the democrats. They can’t win by the rules, so they change the rules. Dishonest, lying, cheating, thieves. All that party is.

We must vote in November. Stop the democrats!

From The Daily Wire:

When all else fails, change the system.

Leftist luminaries, who weren’t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they’ve now, apparently, resorted to “reforming” the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the “balance of power,” the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size.

“Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement over the status quo — with the potential to impact all branches of government,” activist Steve Vladick opines for NBC’s “Think” platform.

“[C]hanging the size of the House of Representatives — from its current total of 435 seats to 650 seats, or one for every 500,000 constituents — would make that body far more reflective of the country at large; would dramatically affect presidential elections; and, perhaps alone among all of these proposed reforms, would most be in keeping with the wishes of the Constitution’s drafters,” he continues.

Vladick argues that “changing the size of the House of Representatives would make that body far more reflective of the country at large” by narrowing the size of Congressional districts and limiting district size based on population. In most cases, that would involve halving districts.

But it’s not clear how having more districts with fewer people makes the House more representative, since House members are duly elected and, in most cases, making the districts smaller wouldn’t improve a member’s ability to lunch with every last one of his or her constituents.

What it does do, however, is help the Democrats remain in control of one house of Congress at all times by giving larger cities and their immediate metropolitan areas (where there are bigger populations in smaller areas) more seats. Unless large cities with high populations switch to the GOP in the near future, Democrats would hold the clear majority in the House ad infinitum.

So really, the House would become “more reflective” of … Democratic strongholds.

Tricky, tricky.

Unfortunately for Democrats, none of these proposals — expanding the Senate, packing the Supreme Court, or doubling the size of the House — are likely headed for approval.
