Democrat 'search and destroy' mission may backfire

Kavanaugh, Brett (Senate Cmte hearing)A constitutional attorney says Democrats have engaged in Soviet-style propaganda and smear tactics in an attempt to derail Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the United States Supreme Court.

During Thursday's impassioned address before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Kavanaugh called out the Democrats for the way they have treated him and his family.

"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace," he stated. "The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process, but you have replaced advise and consent with search and destroy."

Roe's legacy: The Senate 'circus'

It's safe to say that the Supreme Court confirmation process has become intensely politicized – and one organization says that's because the high court itself has become intensely politicized.

Aden, Steven (AUL)"The Supreme Court itself has become the national abortion control center and has found rights like the so-called fundamental right to abortion that never existed in the U.S. Constitution," says Steven Aden, chief legal officer and general counsel at Americans United for Life (AUL). "If it hadn't done so, we wouldn't be here. We wouldn't be arguing and letting blood over who should be allowed on the Supreme Court."

Aden believes that otherwise it would be a much more reasonable, level-headed standard day in Washington.

"But this is the legacy that Roe has given us, that nine people in black robes should decide fundamental questions of life and death for all the American people," he continues. "That's not what the framers intended and that's not the way that it should be – but until the Supreme Court fixes that, we'll undoubtedly get more confirmation hearings conducted like circuses."

And then committee member Lindsey Graham weighed in. 

"I cannot imagine what you and your family have gone through,” he said to Kavanaugh before turning his attention to the Democrats. "Boy, y'all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham."

Matt Barber, co-founder and chief counsel of Christian Civil Rights Watch, also disapproves of the way things have transpired.

Barber, Matt (Christian Civil Rights Watch)"They engaged in Soviet-style propaganda and smear tactics -- the likes of which we have never seen before in the United States," he observes.

But Barber believes even some Democrats will ultimately vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation and says, "I think that Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed by anywhere from a two- to five-vote margin."

Presidential counselor Dr. Robert Jeffress adds that the left is hurting more than Judge Kavanaugh, as he believes the Democrats' attack may backfire come November.

"Democrats are trying to destroy the most basic foundation not only of America's legal system, but of God's sense of justice that dates back to Moses, and that is the presumption of innocence," the pastor submits.

Jeffress

He says treachery in Washington has reached appalling new heights. 

"Watching these hearings is a stark reminder of why we cannot allow the left to ever be in control of anything ever again," Dr. Jeffress declares. "They care nothing about the rule of law. They care nothing about justice. All they care about is getting their way."

And as America starts to see behind the curtain, Jeffress says conservatives in particular are paying attention, and he believes what has been revealed should be "a strong motivation for everyone to vote in the midterms."
