I am trying to remember, did Liz Warren sexually offend me? Not sure. There are some gaps in my memory, but that should be enough to disqualify her from re-election, no?

The Democrats are about as transparent as Scotch tape in their battle plan to prevent Judge Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. When you can't win on the issues, throw a grenade. Then keep tossing the grenades until the other side can no longer fight back. Not that they do anyway.

This is, as I have said from the start, all about protecting abortion rights, which they perceive to be at risk. The left will stop at nothing if they think that abortion rights are at risk. They believe Judge Kavanaugh presents a threat to those abortion rights and will destroy him and anyone else who they perceive to be a threat.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley has weak and wobbly knees. Grassley lost control of the confirmation proceedings on day one. The Democrats took over the show from the get-go and never looked back. Grassley has no idea how to take control.

What is most sad here is that the presumption of innocence is lost. Unless, of course, you are Keith Ellison, a Clinton or a Kennedy. Then you get to skate. But the fear of offending women has men (and Republicans) cowering in a corner too afraid to assert themselves.

Think about it. All it takes now is for someone to accuse you of something with no proof and no witnesses, and just like that, your career is over and your reputation is shot. It's that easy.

And this is just the beginning. If the left gets away with this, it gets worse. It could happen to anyone at any time. It could happen to you.

Character assassination, the new lethal weapon of choice. Kills instantly. No evidence or witnesses needed.

What is happening is dangerous. Isn't this how dictatorships work? Discredit and marginalize your enemy? If the radical left is able to get control of the government, just imagine how extensive the abuse of their power will become.
