It seems fitting to add my own little bit to the storm that raged in the political landscape for several solid weeks. I may be a bit later than most news outlets to weigh in on the matter, but one of the things I want to bring to light, is the silence that has followed the outrage against Brett Kavanaugh.
As apparent as it was to me and many others, that the media concern over sexual misconduct allegations brought against Brett Kavanaugh by Ford, were politically motivated, it should now be glaringly obvious to those who were on the fence. If reporters and democrats were really concerned about justice for Ford, then their outrage and demands should have either preceded or outlasted the senate confirmation process. Neither is the case.
The issues came up right in the middle of the process, and evaporated soon after Kavanaugh’s confirmation. I guess Ford’s problems and injustices simply don’t rate anymore. They have no more potential for political gain on the part of the Democrats.
With all that having been pointed out, I would like to turn to a more positive angle. Trump promised there would be so much winning we would get tired of it. Well I’m not tired of it yet, but there certainly is a lot of winning going on and a lot to be thankful for.
On the top of the list of things to be thankful for is the fact that Republicans in the senate grew a back bone for the first time in many years. Lindsey Graham led the charge interestingly enough, but Mitch Mcconnell soon took up the fighting spirit as well and held the line.
Before this happened it looked for quite a while like just another show, where the Democrats set up a phony crisis and are outraged and demand acquiescence simply based on allegations. Jeff Flake and a few other swing voters almost gummed up the works, but all is well that ends well.
Now that the dust has settled, the bottom line is, the Republicans held their ground, the rule of law and the presumption of innocence was upheld, and we have a great judge on the bench.
I am a person who believes God is interested in our national welfare, and that He intervenes from time to time in our nation’s doings. This may have been such a time. The way everything played out, compared to the way they usually play out, is most likely beyond coincidence. Especially considering the pivotal role that is to be played by Kavanaugh who brings a constitutional conservative majority to the supreme court.
So on the one hand it is very sad that many Americans have stooped to the level of hatred that was leveled against an apparently upright man. But it is very encouraging also that there are people left with the courage to do what is right in the face of evil.
