Imagine that you’re a veteran politician who thinks the world revolves around you. You have used your political position to enrich your family to the tune of tens of millions of dollars. You champion an issue that you can’t ever win because it’s a right enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, but you oppose it anyway with ever fiber of your being. You believe that the best way to help the poor is to eliminate them from ever being born. You are running for re-election and things have not gone as you had hoped. Your own party endorsed your opponent and the once friendly media was more than glad to report that you had a spy from a foreign country on your payroll for over 20 years.
Give the above, what do you do to save yourself? Why shift the blame, change the narrative, or as we used to say in the Navy, “Deny everything and make counter accusations”.
What Diane Feinstein chose to do is create a media circus where she is the star and someone else gets thrown under the bus. Cue music because our sacrificial victim this political season is Brett Kavanaugh.
Democratic leaders and their liberal aides, along with professional agitators, are all intermingled and conspiring together to achieve the same objective — in this case, to spike the confirmation of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
Hill Republicans claim Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein engineered the kneecapping of Kavanaugh from both inside and outside Congress — and they have a strong case, though Feinstein insists she merely dealt cards she was handed.
For starters, they argue that Feinstein, who is the top Democrat on the Senate committee vetting Kavanaugh, orchestrated an “11th-hour ambush” of the conservative nod by withholding a letter from the committee’s Republican majority alleging sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh until the day the panel was preparing to take a vote to confirm him — almost two months after receiving the letter and well after the vetting and hearing process.
But one thing is for sure: Feinstein and her former aide’s fingerprints are all over the smearing of Kavanaugh — and that’s an ironic shame, given that Feinstein was swept into Congress as a reaction to the then-Democratic Senate’s mishandling of the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas sex allegations. The San Francisco-based senator has made her own missteps some 25 years later.
Senator Feinstein has decided that this political witch hunt is best lead by a witch dedicated to drowning her victims in the Washington Swamp the she loves so well. From what I hear about San Francisco, both cities have an abundance of excrement which they are happy to export.
Kavanaugh seems like a decent guy but Feinstein’s path to six more years in the Swamp is over his mangled and dead body. When you position yourself as the leading advocate for killing unborn children, what’s another corpse?
