Open Letter To The Entire US Senate GOP Caucus

To:  Entire US Senate GOP Caucus
From:  Mitch Berg, Cranky Peasant
Re:  A Big Lie


Confirm Brett Kavanaugh.  Now.

The allegations against him are of a piece with nearly every leftist narrative today – utter crap.  It’s transparent BS.  Like most lefty memes – “gun violence”, the “War on Women”, the $15 minimum wage and on and on, it is largely a set of chanting points that aren’t intended to convince the intelligent.  They are intended solely to leverage the tribalist ignorance of the masses of entitled would-be elitists who make up Big Left’s voting bloc; they don’t fact check jack; they hear things on the media, and the left’s alt-media, and parrot it like the obedient little schnauzers most of them are.

Confirm Brett Kavanaugh.  Now.

Nothing reinforces a tactic like success.  If Big Left manages to scuttle Kavanaugh, you can expect every single conservative – I almost added “male” to the list, but as we saw with Sarah Palin and MIchele Bachmann, the left hates conservative women even more – will meet the same scabrous, defamatory treatment.

Every one.

Confirm Kavanaugh.  Now.

And if Big Left tries to call out the schnauzers of “The #Resistance”, then yes, let’s meet them – in court if they choose wisely, at the barricades if they don’t.

But confirm Kavanaugh.  Now.

If you fail to do this, you will get brutalized this November.

And you will have it coming.

Confirm Kavanaugh.  Now.

  1. My ideal situation, after the hearing on Thursday call a floor vote for confirmation 90 minutes after its over. Play hardball Mitch and dont get backed into a corner.

  2. Sen. Grassely: Dr Ford, for the record, please introduce the people sitting with you.

    Dr. Ford: On my left is Carol Dewey, Ashley Cheatum and Sarah Howe from the law firm of Dewey, Cheatum and Howe. On my right is Cindy Spinnit, my publicist, and Melissa Kennedy-Gore from my future publisher Random House.

    Sen. Grassely: And those behind you?

    Dr. Ford: Oh, that’s Rebecca Blue-Moon, my spiritual adviser and Gail Adegbalola, my voice couch.

    Sen. Grassely: And the woman with the intense green eyes swinging the gold pendant?

    Dr. Ford: I can’t remember her name – but she is my hypnotist. Wait, wait, I have recovered the memory of her name…. It’s….

  3. I’ve contacted my Senators and as expected, there are no worries with them.

    All of these accusations are Bullshit, but the New Yorker hit piece was off the scale Bullshit.

    She didn’t want any part of it, but after 6 days of being coached and pressured by leftist reprobates and law talking dudes and boom! she’s good to go…WTF is that shit? It’s Bullshit is what it is.

    We really need to pull out our knuckle dusters and knock the crap out of this Bullshit. Let the miserable thot have her say, and then have the vote. Any more Bullshit from the reprobates and honestly, it’s time to go to the mattresses. If we lose this thing, we are screwed.

    And after we’re done with this Bullshit, it’s time to hire some investigators to dig into the pasts of the reprobates. They’re scumbags, you just know their teen years were filled with wild ass behavior. Bestiality, buggery; incest; all manner debauchery is sure to be in there.

    Let’s make the New Rules our own.

  4. Now *that* comment, I understand being moderated. Don’t like it; but I understand it.

  5. Ford thinks she’s in charge of the committee but actually it’s Senator Grassley. I don’t believe he will kowtow to her demands. And as a result I don’t believe she’ll show for the hearing, or if she does it will be for dramatic affect only. At that point as POD suggests Grassley should suspend the hearing and immediately go for a committee vote. I think the odds are stacked against her even showing.

    At the end of the day I think the Dems will “rue the day” they went down this road.

  6. She’ll go, make a scurrilous statement, then walk out.
    Dems know how to play the media, because they are the media.

  7. I think this agrees with (ie, reinforces) your comment, MP, but I’ll be darned if I know how.

    Kavanaugh accusers are credible because they don’t remember anything.


    “They’re credible, because they don’t say they have the dates, times and places, right? There’s nothing.”

  8. MBerg: You’re a little confused. If the Republicans weren’t terrified of the midterm results, there wouldn’t be a problem here. We’d just spend a few weeks clearing the air.

  9. Last month, the complaint was Kavanaugh was out of the mainstream of modern Constitutional scholarship. Liberals wanted him to withdraw so Trump could nominate somebody more ‘moderate’ who would be acceptable to Democrats.

    This week, the complaint is Republicans are terrified of mid-term elections so they’re ramming through the confirmation of the nation’s leading serial rapist, rather than spend a few weeks to ‘clear the air.’ After which, Liberals will declare the nominee “tainted” and insist he withdraw so Trump can nominate somebody more ‘moderate’ who would be acceptable to Democrats.

    This fiasco has nothing to do with Kavanaugh’s past, with the present scurrilous slanders, with the mid-term elections. It’s a political power play to keep Liberal control of Supreme Court justice. It’s obvious to everybody so why the pretense of caring what some Democrat activist women say?

    Because mushy-headed cis-women and RINOs like Lindsay Graham (not a real woman, just a pussy) in the Senate Republican caucus must be coddled to get their votes. Like dis-satisfied teenagers, they don’t want anything in particular to make them happy, they just want to be pampered for a while, to be the center of attention for as long as it takes for them to find some new thing to be mad about.

    Makes me long for the olden days when Senator Graft would oppose a nomination only until the majority promised him a new federal building or bridge in his district, then he’d have a ‘change of heart’ and get aboard the gravy train. Quick, cheap, easy.

  10. Credit where due, congrats PoD, but I can’t help but wonder if the apparent feckless-ness of the Republicans in general and Senators in particular was part of a plan to draw out the left into showing its hand, indeed, into showing just how nuts they are. I’ve seen a number of reports of late from people, Never-Trumpers, Not-Really-For-Trumpers, and some independents indicating that they and even some of their friends and acquaintances have become “broken glass voters” (ie, willing to crawl across broken glass to vote a certain way) *for* the Republicans.

    I mean, one of the newer memes, Cocaine Mitch, is part of this “settle down, we got this” narrative.

    … of course, Kavanaugh has yet to be confirmed and the midterms could be a catastrophe, so take this with a big ol’ grain of salt.

    Where did you get that talking point from, Emery?
    If the Democrats were interested in a full and fair examination of the facts, they would have brought this up during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. That ended on September 7.
    Kind of like the Democrats are are acting in bad faith, isn’t it?

  12. You are confusing a whole bunch of things. These hearings are not a court-of-law session and the Senators are not acting as judges. They can vote “no” for whatever reason, e.g. bad haircut.

  13. … sooo, the FBI needs to investigate (a 7th time) even tho’ the left will vote “no” because of a bad haircut.

  14. *before more women come out to smear Kavanaugh with scurrilious charges.

    Fixed you posy Emery 🙂

  15. Also Emery, what does what Kavanaugh might have done in high school over 30 years ago effect anything today or what kind of judge he’d be. Finally, where were all these defenders of women when Clintons accusers were stepping forward with much more credible and recent (relatively speaking) charges?

  16. Bah, women lie about sex all the time. Just ask Keith Ellison or Bill Clinton, Rolling Stone magazine, the Duke lacrosse players . . . the list goes on and on.

    I’ve started a pool for the first allegation of cannibalism. Saturday is taken already. Who else wants in?

  17. In politics, it is not what you say, it is what people hear.

    It is also what people see. If even more women just see this as a committee of aging white men confirming “one of their own” regardless of potentially disqualifying behavior, then a vote against the enablers of the process will have even more appeal.

    This controversy may have started with an item of personal behavior, but the repercussions are going to be collective and long lasting. This is more than a date gone wrong.

    One suspects that women who “walk” during the upcoming mid-term election are slamming the door behind them and won’t be back. This is now about the brand, not any particular individual. That’s what will make the coming divorce so irrevocable.
    By way of background, women must also sense from the revelations about powerful men in the media and entertainment over the past couple of years that much of the media slant of the past decade or two has been brought to them and the general public by a cohort of highly protected sexual predators.
    The Republicans may have an unpleasant letter waiting for them on the kitchen table the morning after the election.

  18. Referring to JD’s comment of women and those that lie about sex you have to wonder about when the time comes and interest in salacious innuendo dies out where will the Dems go for their next kabuki theatre. Allegation of cannibalism might be all they have left. Will that include the eating of their own if their current gambit backfires against them?

  19. We can listen to the testimony and come to a conclusion about its truthfulness or lack thereof. That is the purpose of public testimony and we the public fulfill the traditional jury role of trier of the fact. That is what the Republicans are afraid of — that the public will shift from politics to the more exalted role of jury.

  20. Let’s assume that as each woman came foreward, Kavanaugh had said “Yes, it’s true, I acted badly, I’m so ashamed, but it was long ago and I’ve mended my ways so confirm me to the court.” Would any Democrat vote for him? No. Because this isn’t about truth, or history, or juries. This isn’t about qualifications or credentials.

    This spectacle is about the balance of power on the Court. Neil Gorsuch was spotless but he was only confirmed 54-45 and he was simply refilling an existing conservative seat, vacated by Scalia. Kavanaugh will shift the balance of power and that absolutely cannot be abided.

    Here’s an interesting thought. Who provides personal security for Supreme Court justices? If Kavanaugh is confirmed but Democrats win the Senate in the mid-terms, we’re only one bullet away from another epic confirmation battle for Liberals to retake the Court. The Left has already demonstrated its willingness to use violence for petty squabbles over Confederate statues. This time, it’s really important.

  21. The Demographic shift towards Democrats doesn’t come from all women — just single women. Men tend to lean Republican, married or not.
    It is difficult to believe that our democracy is enhanced by the votes of women who reject the party of Kavanaugh to embrace the party of Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Chris Dodd, and Bob Menendez.

  22. Per Joe’s comment about liberals and violence, I think Jimmy Kimmel needs a visit from the police for his horrible attempt at humor recently.

  23. Sen. Grassely needs to study the exchange between Sen. Joe McCarthy and Joseph N. Welch that took place on June 9, 1954, the 30th day of the Army–McCarthy hearings.


    Until this moment, Senator, I think I have never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness. Fred Fisher is a young man who went to the Harvard Law School and came into my firm and is starting what looks to be a brilliant career with us….Little did I dream you could be so reckless and so cruel as to do an injury to that lad. It is true he is still with Hale and Dorr. It is true that he will continue to be with Hale and Dorr. It is, I regret to say, equally true that I fear he shall always bear a scar needlessly inflicted by you. If it were in my power to forgive you for your reckless cruelty I would do so. I like to think I am a gentleman, but your forgiveness will have to come from someone other than me.

  24. Emery; there’s a storm comin. And it’s comin soon. Space in the sewers will come at a premium; you best claim your spot.

    You really don’t want to be caught above ground when the thunder rolls.

  25. Ginsbeg fans take note! Yesterday Ruth Bader Ginsberg endorsed the #MeToo movement, saying “Every woman of my vintage has not just one story but many stories, but we thought there was nothing you could do about it – boys will be boys – so just find a way to get out of it.”
    Neither Ginsberg nor the writer of the AP piece so much as mentioned the name of the person who appointed Ginsberg to her job, the only president impeached for lying about his sexual relationship with an intern, and a president who paid handsomely to dismiss a sexual harassment complaint lodged by another employee.
