Kavanaugh vs. Strzok

This week, Americans got to see the political divide in the flesh as two men took turns on the political stage. On Monday, President Trump introduced Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his choice for the Supreme Court.

He stood as a remarkably calm, all-American dad at the White House, He gave a short and grateful speech, then posed for cameras with his wife and their two daughters.

Judge Kavanaugh is a boring ordinary guy. He did keggers in college. He was the guy who got the tickets to the ballgame for everyone. They paid him back at the park. Now he coaches his girl's basketball team.

On Thursday, defrocked FBI agent Peter Strzok testified before Congress. He came off as the Sheldon Cooper or Pee Wee Herman of the FBI.

He just had to act normal for a few hours, but he could not pull it off.

Americans like to believe their government is staffed by good, sane, and intelligent people like Judge Kavanaugh. For the most part, that is true.

Sadly, we also have a few toxic cases like Strzok. He and his cronies at the FBI -- both current and former -- are trying to bring down the president in an effort to overturn the last election. They know better than those smelly deplorables who voted for Donald John Trump.

In two news stories, Americans got to see the difference between President Trump and The Swamp. Who do we want serving America, Kavanaugh or Strzok?

Democrats sided with the latter.

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut tweeted, "Brett Kavanaugh is an anti-consumer zealot, an opponent of preexisting condition protections, a critic of abortion rights and access to contraception, a Second Amendment radical, and a bad choice for the Supreme Court."

Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia tweeted, "The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party."

Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi of California tweeted, "“If he proves as eager an executor of the president's bitter campaign to overturn Roe v. Wade and sabotage Americans' health care as his record suggests, a woman's right to choose will be repealed and the health coverage and economic security of 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions will be in grave peril."

130 million people have pre-existing conditions? And here I thought Americans were a healthy breed.

But after saying insane things about the very stable Judge Kavanaugh, Democrats embraced the weirdo Strzok.

Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee told him during the hearing: "If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one."

Seriously, Memphis, this is the best you can send to Washington?

My hope is the rest of America notices what I noticed this week. Opposing Kavanaugh and supporting Strzok are the signs of an illness that has yet to run its course.

The peaceful transition of power -- which Democrats so far have denied President Trump -- serves the party ceding power by giving it time to reflect on where it went wrong in the last election and how it can repair that damage. Refusing to take time to heal has cost the party and the nation dearly.

We will see how this plays out on November 6, but my guess today is Democrats won't like the outcome.

  1. The Left is so eaten by TDS that they are no longer capable of rational thought. Sadly there are also some pseudo-Conservatives in the same boat.


  2. "The Gift That Keeps On Giving" ...

  3. Those that can’t see the difference have my sincerest sympathy. They are truly insane

  4. Sad to say I live in Memphis and that clown Cohen has been embarrassing us for years. He knows his throne here is shaky as a black Democrat will claim it in the near future. He knows that and does everything he can to appease his base. I'm surrounded by Dems and virtue signalling liberals, so it is quite difficult. Envy you, Don, for your great Trump West Virginia!

    1. Republicans in Memphis should encourage some black, any black in Memphis to run against Cohen and go vote for the guy, Democrat or not.

      Get rid of the legacy Democrats.

  5. This is not a spoof:

    This is what TDS does to people.

    1. Good God almighty! I never would have believed it, but they're actually serious. Seriously deranged!

      SMH. I wonder what color the sky is in their world?

    2. I couldn't possibly bear to follow that link, but it sounds just like that interview Samantha Bee did with Eric Schneiderman.

  6. Steve Cohen certainly is not the best Tennessee can do, but he is far better than the previous representatives from Memphis. Seriously, you ought to read up on the Ford family sometime when you need a laugh. They give the Conyers family from Detroit a run for the money.

  7. “Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee told him during the hearing: "If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would.”

    Read one way, that’s a threat.

    1. I'd go along with him getting a Purple Heart, but only if I get to shoot him first!

  8. It's the optics thing.

    Stick (or whatever his name is) had to show off.

    1. I gotta feeling that that smirking clip is gonna figure big time in some Republican TV election ads.

  9. Lemme get this straight. Roe v Wade is a SCOTUS decision from the early '70s. Hence, it's not a "law" as I understand it. From my narrow knowledge a (federal) law is something passed by both the House and Senate and signed by the President.
    A SCOTUS decision has never been voted on by the Congress. It was a short-circuiting of the lawmaking process.

    Another thing I understand is that it'll take a court challenge to something to do with RvW to make its way to the SCOTUS for a review of the 7-2 decision.

    If, indeed, RvW was vacated, it doesn't mean that Abortion is outlawed, it just means that it's returned to the states for decision through vote or legislation (remember Amendment 10?).

    What we need is more of our side stating the facts that 1) a case would have to make it to the SCOTUS, and 2) if overturned, it goes back to the several States for their action. Each state would decide for itself/its population.
