Given the New Allegation, Will Judge Kavanaugh Still be Confirmed?
Up until a few days ago, it looked like Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, would sail along to a quick confirmation to the Supreme Court. His record was impeccable. His recommendations were stellar. His endorsements were numerous.
But, the unexpected sexual assault allegation levied against Judge Kavanaugh (that was alleged to take place around 35 years ago) gave new ammunition to the Democrats and Leftists to try to stop the confirmation from ever taking place. Obviously, the Left didn’t want a Constitutional conservative to gain a seat on the highest court of the land.
How will this charge impact the Senate confirmation process?
Importantly, how will this charge impact 2018 Congressional election voters around the country?
How Will this Allegation Impact the Judge Kavanaugh Confirmation Process?
Late Monday, we learned that both Judge Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, would get the opportunity to testify under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee. It will likely be a rough and tough and intensely emotional grilling of both Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Kavanaugh.
At the end of the additional Senate hearing on the allegation next Monday, September 24th, it will probably come down to a “he said – she said” standoff. However, Ford indicated that a third party witnessed the alleged assault. However, Mark Judge (the other boy) didn’t recall the assault that Ford alleges.
Given the incredible timing of the allegation, it appears to many conservatives that this is a last-minute attempt to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. It looks so much like a replay of the last-minute Anita Hill allegations against Clarence Thomas. Recall Clarence Thomas’ terminology at the time referring to his confirmation process as a “high-tech lynching.”
Bottom line – I expect that Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation will be delayed a few days. But, he will be confirmed and begin as a Justice of the Supreme Court on-time the first week of October.
How Will this Allegation Impact the Voters in the 2018 Congressional Elections?
The American voters are deeply upset with the antics of the Democratic Party and the Left. Democrats are joining the #WalkAwayMovement and supporting President Trump and conservative pro-Trump candidates for office.
In addition, the American voters consider the Mueller investigation to be strictly political, not a real investigation of any crimes.
It’s true that some Democratic Socialists are displacing Establishment Democrats. However, that’s good for Conservative Republicans. It makes it even easier for the Conservative Republicans to win over their Democratic opponents. Plus, it contributes to the ultimate end and complete shutdown of the Democratic Party that I have been predicting.
In fact, the Democratic Party is the political equivalent of the Titantic (that is sinking) and Trump is the iceberg that hit them.
Bottom line – the last minute, sexual assault allegation against Judge Kavanaugh is seem by most voters as more negative politics. It boosts the likely election results for Republicans and hurts the chances for some Democrats in already close Congressional District races.
The Democrats continue to hurt themselves in their blatant and fumbling attempts to oppose President Trump and his policies that align closely with the American voters.
