(National Sentinel) Closed Minds: Without question, tens of millions of Americans are sickened by what Democrats have turned Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation into: A circus replete with disgusting allegations of sexual misconduct offered by a half-dozen women, none of whom have offered any proof or corroborating evidence for their claims.
And the fact that Democrats have managed to delay Kavanaugh’s vote with one of the least credible of all the accusers, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, is worse than a sick joke. It’s a disturbing affront to our political process.
What’s more, Kavanaugh’s testimony today is completely unnecessary and worthless, by virtue of what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., told CNN on Wednesday.
Namely, it didn’t matter what he said; she’d already made up her mind to believe Ford.
“Based on everything I have heard to date, no,” she told that hack, Chris Cuomo, when asked if she was even open to changing her mind.
“And before these allegations came to light, I thought Judge Kavanaugh’s record was disqualifying. His view on women’s rights, the fact that he doesn’t see women’s reproductive freedom anywhere in the Constitution, the fact that he believes insurers have more free speech rights than you and I, if you have a preexisting condition, they should be able to charge you whatever they want, the fact that he believes my boss should decide whether I have access to contraception, all of those things, to me, are disqualifying,” Gillibrand continued, distorting a good man’s — and a good judge’s — record.
“Because his views are so far outside the mainstream, so conservative, that I can’t imagine him being a force for good on the court, and I can’t imagine him actually having the kind of judicial character that is necessary to be a justice on the Supreme Court,” she claimed, despite the fact that a majority of Americans oppose abortion and identify as conservatives.
“Then you just add to that all these allegations. So, no, whatever he says tomorrow, it will not change my view. And I’ve already read Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony and I believe her.”
So, what exactly was the point of today’s hearing? Gillibrand foreshadowed that she and her party have already determined, without evidence, that Kavanaugh’s a sexual predator and Ford is the saint.
This is yet another reason why Democrats cannot ever be trusted again with the reins of power.
