The Democrats’ version of justice: The lynch mob versus the honest man…

A circus was in town in Washington last week. Barnum? Not really. Bozo the Clown? Neither. In fact, it was worse or better depending on the point of view. Brett Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Hearings for the Supreme Court presented to the American people and to the whole planet such a despicable spectacle that no regular circus in the world could have ever come up with that. It was a disgrace, a travesty, a shame and a dishonor. I must tell you that I didn’t believe a single word I heard in this Hearing, except those coming from Judge Kavanaugh himself. The whole thing was made up, it was a show and a completely fake event. The Democrats are trying to swap the current version of the justice system with their own, where the accused is considered guilty regardless of the proof presented and where lynch mobs replace the jury and deliberation. A Confirmation Hearing is not a trial. It is supposed to be an event where the qualities of an individual are tested and evaluated to make a decision on the fitness for a job appointment. Those who were there to put Kavanaugh on trial were at the wrong address.

I think I have a good idea of what is going on. You see, Democrats, in good socialists that they are, can’t win on the debate of ideas. They loose inevitably because they can’t beat us on rational grounds, since their ideas are irrational and impossible to implement in reality. So now their only way to achieve their goals is to use the good old tricks. Intimidation, harassment, violence, smear attacks, framing, etc. In this case here involving Judge Kavanaugh, a few ‘victims’ were found of crimes that he supposedly committed when he was younger. It is interesting to note that the ‘victims’ all chose this particular moment to talk while they kept silence for the last thirty years… I smell a rat. I think the Democrats are simply throwing the most dirt and s*?# at Trump to try to slow down his presidency, jam any progress in any activity whatsoever of the Administration in an effort eventually to impeach him. Democrats are trying to find ‘victims’ for crimes supposedly committed by employees, partisans, candidates or supporters of the Trump Administration, to be able to pin those ‘crimes’ on the back of Trump and pile up enough material for an impeachment. One wonders what kind of pressure is being put on these women to coerce them to come forward with these fabrications, highly damaging to the people they are targetted to. Some of these ‘victims’ must be in terrible situations, hopeless, to agree to be used like guinea pigs for political purposes. It is really a circus, in all sense of the word.

The justice system works perfectly when we respect its rules and principles. In order of procedure, the victim of a crime reports to the police; the police investigates; if there is enough evidence for charges to be pressed, the police makes a recommendation to the Justice Department to press charges; the Department evaluates the case; eventually, the Department may decide to press charges; if charges are pressed, there is a trial; at the trial the accused is represented by a lawyer and his rights are respected. That’s how justice was served until recently in America and that’s how it should be served, not like the disgusting spectacle that we have seen this week on Capitol Hill. I hope that the Senate Judiciary Committee will change its rules to make it clear that any Hearing should not be used to make a show trial. Any such attempt should be dismissed immediately, declared void or referred to criminal courts. The testimony of Christine Blasey Ford should never have happened in the first place. This was not the proper setting for it.

The debt ceiling debate: terrorist rhetoric or the end of the niceties?

In a recent article, Globe and Mail’s Neil Reynolds expressed his astonishment and perhaps even sadness as regards to the rhetoric that has been employed during the debt ceiling debate in the U.S. After presenting an almost exhaustive list of people in the media who displayed language using the « terrorist » label, he concludes the article by saying that democracy would never have come into existence in the first place with such behavior, calling it « preposterous and shameful ». Although I appreciate the sentiment that he is showing here, I am not sure that it is the proper thing that has to been understood. For me, this language is rather the expression of a « five-minutes-to-midnight » feeling where suddenly, in the face of an impending catastrophy and collapse, people abandon the niceties because there is no point keeping them anymore. A lot of folks in the Tea Party and the Republican Party want the destruction of the United States. One doesn’t need to be an expert to see that. Democrats who used to be skeptics or who didn’t want to face reality now have no longer the choice. One can deny the building is on fire, but once the flames are up to your ass, it’s another pair of sleeves, or pants if you prefer. The rhetoric of the Democrats and liberals, although unusual, is accurate and appropriate for people who start to see things as they are. If Democrats and liberals don’t do something really fast to take back control of this country, it will collapse and Balkanize. What we have to understand here is that because something is cute, it doesn’t make it right necessarily, and on the opposite, because something is repulsive at face value, it doesn’t make it wrong automatically. I think good judgement is always necessary. Democrats are awakening to the impending catastrophy. I just wish it is not too late. As a means of enriching the discussion, I propose John Moore’s analysis of the situation in a recent edition of the National Post. I think that he has a rather fair assessment of right-wing activists, or purits as the calls them, in the U.S.
