It would seem that our Senate, instead of being an institute of diplomacy, common sense and patriotism has become something resembling a bloodless version of a Roman Coliseum spectacle, where political gladiators fight to the death, over, not legislation, nor the betterment of the nation, but for whatever ideology their party is embracing.
The battle lines are drawn between the Democrats and Republicans, with a few gutless cowards who, like jackals at a lion’s kill, skulk around the perimeter until the heavy lifting is done and declare their allegiance to the winner.
Respect for truth and clarity, justice and fairness have fallen prey to party loyalty and the ungodly, insatiable hunger for power that seemingly infects those who cross the Potomac for political purposes and unfortunately, the last entity standing is not America, with the only lasting effect being disunity, distrust and misunderstanding.
Confirmation hearings have become interrogations, and it would be easy to imagine that some of the Senators would gladly resort to waterboarding or worse to confirm an issue, veracity be damned.
In their latest antics, we have seen the time-honored, “innocent until proven guilty” shredded like Old Glory in Hurricane Florence as the “I believe her, though I’ve never met her or heard all her story” crowd rush to judgment, or not really “justice,” but the presumption of guilt.
Grandstanding, misandry, accusals so far afield as to be an insult to bring them up, anything and everything, no matter how low the bar, to keep President Trump from putting another justice on the Supreme Court.
For a body supposedly as august, perspicacious and erudite as our Senate is supposed to be, for them to even countenance the ridiculous dribble of a woman claiming to have witnessed multiple gang rapes, at the same places and perpetuated by the same people and continued attending these orgies until she was drugged or drunk to the point of passing out and became the main event herself, is so far removed from any kind of common sense as to be totally ludicrous.
One Senator has gone so far as to blame the whole thing on men and suggested that males should just quit and go away.
Is a woman this misandrous, and simple-minded enough to make such a broad sweeping, irresponsible and nonsensical statement as this the kind of person who should be serving in a powerful legislative body that is supposed to equally represent all colors, creeds and yes, even sexes?
Or how about the Senator from New Jersey who compared himself with a true gladiator by claiming to put himself in jeopardy by releasing privileged information knowing that it had been declassified and approved for public consumption several hours before.
If the Christ ordained, “Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone.” standard prevailed here, Judge Kavanaugh would have been facing an empty chamber.
The Democrats, through that one-eyed jack, GOP Senator Flake, suggested giving the FBI a week to do further investigation, and now, a week is just not long enough, and if they’d tell the truth, as in the case of the Mueller investigation, a decade would not be long enough unless ruinous evidence could be turned up that would completely destroy the object of the investigation
NOTE, a one-eyed jack is someone who perpetually keeps one side of his face hidden, speaks with a forked tongue and always practices CYA.
Now let’s get to the real burr in this saddle blanket.
The Democrats think they have a good chance of gaining seats in the midterms, and they could have a real impeachment party impeaching both a president and a Supreme Court Justice simultaneously, now that Kavanaugh has been confirmed.
Would this tear America apart?
Would the Democrats still do it?
Damn straight they would
Would they pay a price at the polls for the next fifty years?
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
