And God created…every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:21

I am thankful I have found a promise from the God of all grace that deals with the “long term” and the eternal. I belong to a body of plain people who believe the truth revealed in the Bible. These are the people who believe that God in the beginning made the heavens and the earth and all things that are therein.

Yes, these plain, believing people will tell you that God created the flowers to be beautiful and the birds to sing, so that men and women could enjoy them. We believe that God made the birds to warble and harmonize as though they were tuned to a harp.

But the scientist disagrees, saying, “It is simply biological. The bird sings only to attract a mate.”

Actually, the God who made the birds is the Chief Musician of the universe. He made the harps in those little throats and said, “Go and sing!” Thankfully, the birds obeyed, and they have been singing and praising God ever since they were created!

I praise You, Lord, for the beautiful world You created for Your enjoyment and ours. I pray that Your Spirit will move in the hearts of scientists and physicists who recognize the earthly wonders but who refuse to believe in a Creator God.[1]

So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

—Romans 14:12

What we need very badly these days is a company of Christians who are prepared to trust God as completely now as they know they must do at the last day. For each of us the time is surely coming when we shall have nothing but God. Health and wealth and friends and hiding places will all be swept away and we shall have only God. To the man of pseudo-faith that is a terrifying thought, but to real faith it is one of the most comforting thoughts the heart can entertain.

It would be a tragedy indeed to come to the place where we have no other but God and find that we had not been trusting God at all during the days of our earthly sojourn. It would be better to invite God now to remove every false trust, to disengage our hearts from all secret hiding places and to bring us out into the open where we can discover for ourselves whether or not we really trust Him. That is a harsh cure for our troubles, but it is a sure one. Gentler cures may be too weak to do the work. And time is running out on us. PON013-014

Lord, may I indeed live this earthly sojourn in such a way that I have no fear or dread of standing before You, giving account of my life and having nothing but You. Amen. [1]

Chinese government preparing five-year plan to conform Christianity to Socialism, Will “rewrite” the Bible

Chinese government preparing five-year plan to conform Christianity to Socialism, Will “rewrite” the BibleThe Chinese government is supervising a five-year plan to make Christianity more compatible with socialism in which there will be a “rewrite” of the Bible, a prominent religious freedom activist has told Congress. The Rev. Bob Fu, a former Chinese house church leader who immigrated to the United States in 1997 and founded the persecution watchdog organization China Aid, provided great detail during a House hearing Thursday about a plan enacted by leading state-sanctioned denominations in China to “Sincize” Christianity.

As China’s crackdown on religion has seen many house churches demolished and thousands of crosses removed from churches nationwide, Fu warned upfront that what is happening right now in China represents the highest degree of persecution for independent faith groups the country has seen in decades. “Religious freedom in China has really reached to the worst level that has not been seen since the beginning of the Cultural Revolution by Chairman Mao [Zedong] in the 1960s,” Fu told members of the House Foreign Affairs’ Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations.

Will Congress Finally Pull The Plug On Brutal Yemen War? by Ron Paul

• Ron Paul Liberty Report

After three years of US-supported Saudi and United Arab Emirates war on Yemen – with thousands of civilians dead and millions facing starvation – some Members of Congress are looking to curb US facilitation of the genocide. Will new measures taken in Congress result in an end to the US participation?

An Initial Exploration of the Diminishing Role of Facts and Analysis in American Public Life

Source: RAND Corporation

Why is America facing such unusual challenges? Rand found 4 major factors:

1. Increasing disagreement about facts and analytical interpretations of facts and data;
2. Blurring of the line between opinion and fact;
3. Increase in the relative volume, and resulting influence, of opinion and personal experience over fact;
4. Declining trust in formerly respected sources of factual information.

Some Things Aren’t Funny, ‘SNL’ — The Kavanaugh Family’s Pain Is One of Them

In classic fashion, “Saturday Night Live” kicked off its new season on Saturday night by using Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s emotional testimony this past Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee as fodder for its cold open.

Actor Matt Damon played the nominee (he’s seen in character in the photo above) — and he portrayed him as a hot-tempered beer lover who doesn’t “know the meaning of the word ‘stop.’”

We shouldn’t be surprised, of course.

Much of today’s pop culture offerings strip the poignancy and heartbreak out of any event or ignore it altogether, and “SNL” is one of the “best” at that (and that’s not a compliment, just to be clear).

Related: ‘SNL’ Cuts Off Kanye West’s Pro-Trump Speech, Tells Him Not to Wear MAGA Hat

The NBC comedy staple (though it hasn’t been funny in a long time) also likes to turn real heartbreak into comedic material that muffles outrage as it deadens compassion.

Brett Kavanaugh, his wife, his children and his parents are all truly suffering. They wear it on their faces. Christine Blasey Ford seems to be in misery, too.

You won’t see “SNL” or other liberal shows or outlets using Ford’s misery as fodder, however — and they shouldn’t.

But poking fun at her is verboten right out of the gate; first, because most media and many Americans are already on her side to the exclusion of anything Kavanaugh can say, and second, because she’s a woman — and women are to be believed, celebrated and held aloft to the exclusion of even truth and decency in today’s super-charged political environment.

Today, it is OK for kids to see and hear women say the most base, alarming things because, well, they’re women. So their voices must be heard in the perfect storm that is the #MeToo movement and after the election of a Republican president who espouses traditional values.

The theme of the “SNL” riff on Saturday night? That Kavanaugh is a big drinker with a bad temper who is too attached to his old calendars and his high school friends.

The actor in the skit portraying Kavanaugh’s wife was shown sitting behind Damon, her mouth downturned, her eyes sad as she stared at Damon as he talked.

What’s funny about that? Hearts were breaking around the country in real time as Ashley Kavanaugh’s pain played out across her face and her entire being during Thursday’s emotional testimony. For “SNL,” that pain is used to prop up punchlines.

“SNL” also set about trashing innocence.

“First of all, I showed this speech to almost no one, not my family, not my friends, not even P.J. or Tobin or Squee,” Damon said, referring to Kavanaugh’s high school friends.

Kavanaugh himself, who treasures his friends, is mocked for bringing up his calendar and his high school buddies in his testimony.

A male’s virginity was also up for derision in the cold open.

“I didn’t have sex for many, many, many years,” Damon as Kavanaugh said. “All I did was drink a lot and not think about having sex at all. I was the proudest, drunkest virgin you’ve ever seen. And everyone can relate to that.”

There was, of course, a pointed reference to how liberals believe Kavanaugh would act on the bench.

“You think I’m angry? You’re damn right I am,” Damon’s Kavanaugh raged. “But you think I’m angry now, you just wait ’till I get on that Supreme Court, because then you’re all going to pay.”

Let’s not fall for this. Let’s not laugh at things that deserve neither laughter nor our precious time.

We need to hang onto our outrage and our empathy no matter what such liberal outlets as “SNL” or others do or say. We defend the qualities of empathy and compassion in the seemingly smallest of decisions, such as turning off the television when it is warranted.

We can’t afford to squander our humanity on cheap jokes made at the expense of good people — or at the expense of their honest pain.

America’s Disgrace

by David Robertson, theweeflea:

 I didn’t mean to do it. I didn’t have the time and I was not that interested. But once I started I found it hard to stop. It was a bit like watching a train wreck, or a really bad reality TV show – you know you shouldn’t and you know it’s a waste of time – but somehow you continue. What am I talking about? The reality TV show that is the American Senates hearing into the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.  Dr Christine Blasey Ford has accused the potential Supreme Court Judge of sexually assaulting her when he was a 17 year old at a drunken party 35 years ago.   She appeared before the Senate Judicial Committee yesterday, as did Kavanaugh.

It made for great TV drama and theatre – and was incredibly revealing of just how much trouble America is in. This was trial by media with the jury deciding on the basis of their politics and who was the best actor.   The facts are really difficult to ascertain but let me offer the following as certain.

[…]  America is in a mess. Kavanaugh was right to state that the confirmation process had become a national disgrace. He was also right to state that the Senate judicial committee Democrats had replaced “advise and consent with search and destroy”.   The politicization of the judiciary (on all sides ) is the end of the rule of law and democracy. One of the most disturbing facts to come out of this whole debacle is that millions of dollars are being spent in campaigns both for and against Kavanaugh.   George Soros, the Hungarian billionaire, has apparently given $5 million to the campaign to prevent the judge being appointed. What does the fact that a foreign billionaire can use money to influence an American judicial appointment say about the corrupt nature of American politics just now?

In the USA just now we are watching what happens when a nation loses its Christian foundations. It also loses its civilization, its law, its politics, its morality and perhaps above all, its mind.

Brett Kavanaugh Hearing Judge Jeanine Opening Statement: Pirro Rips Democrats

In her Opening Statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro said the hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh showed the hypocrisy among Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Judge Jeanine Says Establishment Republicans Have ‘Buckled, Caved and Bowed’ to Dems

In a powerful opening statement on her Fox News program “Justice with Jeanine Pirro” on Saturday night, host Jeanine Pirro minced no words in going after the Democrats for their actions this past week in regard to the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

She also went after the Establishment Republicans in her statement — and she was clearly referring to, among others, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) for his 11th hour request for a short-term, “limited in scope” FBI investigation into the claims of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Judge Kavanaugh dating back to the early 1980s when they were both teenagers in high school.

Kavanaugh has already been subjected to six previous FBI investigations.

“Is it just a ‘he said-she said’ [scenario’] — is it really that simple?” said Jeanine Pirro on her show.

“And why is this now in the hands of the FBI? Why? Because the Establishment Republicans have buckled, caved and vowed to the Democrats — or should I say demon rats; that’s what I said, demon rats … The spectacle we saw this week was one [of the] most pathetic, disheartening, saddest displays for which the nation has stood witness,” she also said.

She continued, “It was all for intents and purposes a crucifixion of a man. I’ve been a prosecutor and then a DA [district attorney, in Westchester County, New York; she served in that role from 1994 to 2005]. Sex crimes and crimes against women and children were my crusade. I assessed whether cases should go forward, whether the accused should be charged, convicted, and if so as a judge, what the sentence should be.”

She also said, “[So] so one sympathizes more than I when it comes to women who are the silent victims of crime. I created the first domestic violence unit in the nation, which was a Department of Justice pilot program.”

“Christine Blasey Ford is a lovely lady who is credible,” Pirro went on, “and I believe something happened to her. But she’s in over her head and she is being used.”

“She waits 36 years — not telling her mother, a friend, high school counselor or anyone before now.”

“No matter how many brain comparisons she made, she couldn’t remember the fundamentals, whose house it was [where Ford has alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh took place], where it was, when the party was, how she got to the house or how she got home.”

And “she waits 36 years — not telling her mother, a friend, high school counselor or anyone before now.”

Life in a Gynocracy

False rape claims are placing us at peril of witch hunts and then, in time, against all who will not bow to leftist rule.

The performance of women this week – from Senator Dianne Feinstein to Christine Blasey Ford to the howling mobs on Capitol Hill – made me seriously consider surgically altering my sex.  They are demanding special treatment because of their sex and in the process placing all of us – male and female alike – at peril of witch hunts against men and then, in time, against all who will not bow to their rule.

My Facebook friend Alex Bensky reminded me of the advantage to me of transgendering:

Ah, then we’d be unable to criticize your politics, your social viewpoints, your choice of teams to root for, and anything else you say because we’d be transphobic.

‪As a footnote, I’ve seen an estimate that the transgender population is about 0.05% of the population.  This is hardly a warrant for beating up people but it is not clear to me why unless we substantially alter social arrangements that have existed in almost every known human society and celebrate…not just accept but celebrate…transgenderism, we are mean, hateful people.

Victor Davis Hanson offered up the most succinct summary of Blasey Ford’s testimony:

The “process” of memorializing Ford’s testimony involved a strange inversion of constitutional norms: The idea of a statute of limitations is ossified; hearsay is legitimate testimony; inexact and contradictory recall is proof of trauma, and therefore of validity; the burden of proof is on the accused, not the accuser; detail and evidence are subordinated to assumed sincerity; proof that one later relates an allegation to another is considered proof that the assault actually occurred in the manner alleged; motive is largely irrelevant; the accuser establishes the guidelines of the state’s investigation of the allegations; and the individual allegation gains credence by cosmic resonance with all other such similar allegations.

Unless, however, you do not want to transgender, I want to note how we came to such a place, a place both ridiculous and dangerous.

I want you to pay attention to the distortions of language and statistics used to advance the gynocrats’ agenda.

Since when do those accusing others of crimes become “survivors” rather than “accusers”?  How you frame your self-description affects views, doesn’t it?  If you claimed that someone had raped you, why must we always believe you just because you tag yourself “a survivor”?  Do we do this with those who claim to have been robbed or beaten?  “I’m a robbery survivor, so you have to believe me when I say X robbed me.”  The shift in language is to message that accusers must always be believed.  It is, at heart, based on a gross distortion of statistics.

It is difficult for many reasons to determine the percentage of false rape claims, to be sure, but like the claims about 97% of “climate scientists” and global warming, the assertion that only 2% of women’s rape claims are false is itself demonstrably false.  We don’t know the answer, and since we don’t, we should not upset laws and precepts guaranteeing due process for all those accused of the crime – men and women alike.

Healthy Shame Woefully Absent in Washington, DC

How did the Senate process of “advise and consent” deteriorate into a Supreme Court nominee having to detail his teenage sexual chastity on an international media stage?

Righteous and appropriate indignation was on full display at last week’s Senate hearing over sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  From the Democrats, it was the usual outrage they have had since Donald Trump won the presidential election in 2016.  From Judge Kavanaugh, we witnessed a heartfelt human reaction to a good and decent man being accused by the despicable left of being a serial rapist in high school, between his time studying, going to church, and playing sports.

How did the Senate process of “advise and consent” deteriorate into a Supreme Court nominee having to detail his teenage sexual chastity on an international media stage?

Shaming a guiltless person before others inflicts humiliation, disgrace, and disrepute on an entire family – shame without guilt.  This is what the left has been throwing at Judge Kavanaugh and his family for weeks, shaming him through allegations and insinuations of being a sexual predator, a rapist, an alcoholic, even a pedophile, along with death threats to him and his family.

Ironically, these claims are diametrically opposed to the impression millions of Americans have after hearing Kavanaugh’s opening statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Or from the scores of Kavanaugh’s friends and classmates who have rallied to his defense.  Or from his former law clerks and legal associates.

Is it any surprise that he came out swinging before the Senate committee?  He was shamed on an international stage, humiliated and disgraced over bogus, politically motivated, and unsubstantiated accusations of sexual impropriety.  Imagine any of us being in his position, or any of our sons, fathers, husbands, or brothers.  A weaker person than Judge Kavanaugh would go into seclusion or commit suicide under the withering attacks occurring on a daily basis, blasting from every television and newspaper.

What is obvious is that the American left has no shame, no conscience.  From Democrat senators Blumenthal, Feinstein, and Booker to Republican counterparts Flake, Collins, and Murkowski, all are happy to participate in the destruction of a decent man and his family to protect abortion or for revenge against a president they don’t like – followed in lockstep by the media, driven by a rabid obsession to destroy anything and everything related to President Trump.

And don’t forget NeverTrump Republicans, happy to sit quietly on the sidelines while everything they have embraced for decades is thrown on the scrap heap, as long as Trump’s agenda suffers.  Where are Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney?  Wasn’t Kavanaugh on top of their list of Supreme Court nominees if they won the White House in 2012?  Why aren’t they leading the charge to defend Kavanaugh?

What drives such hatred and lack of healthy shame, conscience, or human decency?

Committee Democrats, channeling their inner teenage mean girl personas, nitpicked over 30-year-old entries in Kavanaugh’s calendar, suddenly interested in each and every word or expression from a teenage boy’s diary of events at the time. They accused him of being a passing-out drunk, not remembering the rape train parties that were part of his Jesuit high school life, between football practice and church.

Not finding the smoking gun they sought, some senators preferred to bloviate.  One in particular stepped in it big time, based on his own personal life story.  His words illustrate clearly his own lack of healthy shame and represent so much of what’s wrong in Congress and the Deep State.

Connecticut’s Senator Richard Blumenthal is best known for repeatedly lying about serving in Vietnam.  Even far-left Snopes confirmed Blumenthal’s “handful of false and misleading statements.”  Perhaps this is an affliction of New England senators, as John Kerry also misrepresented his Vietnam war activities, and his tall tales backfired on him during his unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2004.  And don’t forget the late Ted Kennedy, another New England senator.

During the Kavanaugh hearings last week, Senator Blumenthal invoked a legal concept, “falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.”  Translated, this means “false in one thing, false in everything” – that a witness who is untruthful in one portion of his testimony is not credible in any matter.  The one falsehood disqualifies any further assertions, regardless of the veracity of any further testimony.

Senator Blumenthal, forgetful of his previous Vietnam falsehood, stepped in it bigly, actually impugning himself during his remarks.  Trying to impugn Judge Kavanaugh, he actually disqualified himself from rendering judgment on virtually anything.  False in one thing – his Vietnam service – false in everything – his arguments against the Kavanaugh confirmation.

This was the same Senator Blumenthal who, like most of the Hollywood hyenas, was convinced that Kavanaugh’s accuser, Dr. Ford, was credible before ever meeting her or hearing a word she had to say.

Will the media notice this?  No way.  Instead, they are apoplectic over Kavanaugh’s heartfelt self-defense, believing that Republican men deserve scorn and derision simply because they live and breathe.

The hypocrisy is lost on the hypocrites.  Smarmy Senator Blumenthal legalistically destroyed his own credibility over his previous whopper of a lie.  There is also Senator Cory Booker, sitting in judgment of Judge Kavanaugh and allegations of sexual impropriety when Booker himself admitted to sexually groping a high school classmate in 1992.

There is also Senator Feinstein, with more Chinese connections than even the Clintons, daring to render judgment on Justice Kavanaugh – much like those senators who lionized Ted Kennedy or Bill Clinton despite their long history of sexual indiscretions and worse.  Those same senators are now screaming “j’accuse” at Brett Kavanaugh, without any sense of hypocrisy or shame.

Now these senators demand another FBI background check, the seventh for Kavanaugh, a background check that many of them would not pass.

As an aside, did anyone notice that President Trump had no reluctance or objection to another FBI background check – that in fact, he seemed eager?  Such investigations can go both ways.  The accusers may also find themselves investigated, as well as those who financed and abetted them.  What if the FBI uncovers some surprises or perjury?

As author Sarah E. Ball put it, “Healthy Shame is a balance between knowing what is morally right or wrong and having remorse for our actions and taking responsibilities for our mistakes.”  Going farther, she says, “a person with zero shame is a sociopath.”

Sociopathy has been on full display from the Democrats and the media ever since Donald Trump was elected president, escalating to the point where they are happy to go scorched earth, destroying a decent and accomplished man, a longtime public servant, someone who worked hard and arrived at the top of the legal profession.

All because they can’t abide losing the 2016 election to someone they deem unfit for the presidency – with no regard for the short- or long-term damage they are doing to the country and the Constitution.  No shame, indeed.

The real takeaway from the Kavanaugh hearings

If you look closely, you’ll see who’s really in charge here.

Just step back from all the noise and look at what is happening with the “news” coverage about Brett Kavanaugh. The root of this story is simply one woman’s partially recovered memory of something she says happened 36 years ago. The story is completely unsupported by any other evidence. All of the people who she says were at the party have denied under oath that it happened.

People who say “we need to get to the bottom of this” need to understand that the unsupported story is the bottom of this, the top of this, and the middle of this. The memory, with no support, is all there is.

There is no “where” to investigate. There is no “when” to investigate. There is just a story that cannot possibly be proven, which is why no prosecutor would ever bring charges on this case.

Republicans should have simply stated in the beginning that the vote would not be stopped by this woman’s recovered memory. They could have said Senator Feinstein showed the correct judgment initially when she withheld the unsupportable accusation and did not mention it for months.

But they didn’t do that, and the extremely destructive circus ensued (just the way the Democrats had hoped). It is far from being over. Just watch.

What I would like to focus on is not the flimsy case against a good man, but how the media and the Democrats (redundant, I know) control the narrative. Evidence has almost nothing to do with the narratives they sell. The political goal is always primary; facts are secondary and unnecessary. The Kavanaugh case is a good example, but there are many other “big” stories that are based on little or nothing.

Trump’s collusion with Putin is probably the longest running, fact-free “scandal” in history. Despite huge amounts of time and money spent looking for evidence, this “huge story” remains completely unsupported by facts. As in the Kavanaugh case, we have huge numbers of “journalists” and politicians, up in the air, detached from reality, elaborating endlessly on nothing concrete. They have done this every day for years.

In both of these cases and in others like them, the media control two things:

1. They control the daily narrative, the story they want us to hear and want us to talk about.

2. They control the volume knob for any story. The Kavanaugh and Trump stories are played at very high volume. Stories with corroborative facts, like Keith Ellison’s or Bill Clinton’s abuse of women, may be played at low volume. Many stories that could legitimately be played on high volume are muted instead because they do not serve the leftists’ political goals.

Google, Twitter, and other information sites are fine-tuning their volume and mute controls to diminish or silence the political opposition. This is book-burning for the modern era.

It is disturbing to see how easy it is for leftists to control their sheep, who simply believe the propaganda. Millions of Americans apparently now believe that Brett Kavanaugh is a dangerous rapist and child-abuser. Many believe he regularly organized gang-rapes at parties. This does not speak well of the sheep or of their reckless, destructive shepherds.

Sheep like this can be convinced that President Trump is “virtually Hitler.”

The sheep are being prodded to turn violent. They are being taught to hate and being told their hatred is morally praiseworthy. There are clear parallels here to the creation of Mao’s Cultural Warriors. Mao unleashed masses of ignorant, self-righteous, and violent fools to make things right. Overwhelming death and destruction were the result.

Democrats and the media are playing with fire. They don’t care who is burned by their propaganda as long as they are in power after the destruction.

These are dangerous times.

To Kill a Mockingbird, Kavanaugh edition

Fiction becomes reality.

Hollywood’s new cause – the #MeToo movement – is reaching epic proportions.

Every man accused is guilty until he can prove himself innocent.  (Side note of advice: Men, carry a bodycam with you everywhere you go and travel in packs, even on dates.)  Women are to be believed, no matter what.  Who cares if they have no proof?  Who cares if the man was in Disney World on camera when the alleged incident took place?  Who cares if the accused actually died a year before the so-called attack took place?  It doesn’t matter, because women don’t lie about sexual assault.

Hollywood’s usual suspects – Alyssa Milano, Chelsea Handler, Bill Maher – may actually want to watch one of the classics, To Kill a Mockingbird.  Set in the South during the Great Depression, it is a coming-of-age story about brother and sister Jem and Scout Finch.  Their father is a white lawyer defending a black man on trial for…you guessed it: raping a white woman.  The whole town believes the woman, Mayella Ewell, who says Tom Robinson raped her.  The so-called evidence is the bruising on her face, and her father claims he caught Tom with his daughter.  The woman was actually a loner who wanted attention and sought Tom Robinson because he was nice to her.

The town literally becomes a lynch mob.  The police have to post armed guards by Tom Robinson’s cell so he is not killed by the mob.  This group of thugs are ready to kill this man without any proof.  It is a he-said, she-said.  We come to find out that Mayella actually came on to Tom, and when her father found out, they both made up the story to hide the guilt and shame.  To Hell with Tom Robinson’s life.

By all accounts, Tom Robinson is like a mockingbird, an innocent creature.  I argue that Brett Kavanaugh is also like a mockingbird.  Nowhere in his past have there been any black marks other than the normal teenage shenanigans.  By all accounts, the people who are closest to him have nothing but kind and glowing words.  His character is attacked by a woman who says he tried to assault her – not last week or last month or last year.  No – it was over 30 years ago.  Her friends can’t even say they witnessed it.  Yet the mob, the American left, is willing to believe this woman without any evidence just because she said it.  Could it be that Dr. Ford is lying just like Mayella Ewell?

Hollywood – you made this movie as a point that everyone should be given the benefit of he doubt.  Everyone is innocent – black, white, male, female – until proven guilty.  Everyone should be considered a mockingbird until we absolutely see that he is a vulture.  Hollywood women, would you want your fathers to go through this if you knew they weren’t capable of this behavior?

I think we all need to be a bit more like Atticus Finch, the white lawyer, and a lot less like Bob Ewell and his gang of thugs – the modern-era group of paid wackos.

Lindsey Graham Announces Plans to Investigate Democrat Antics and Improper Behavior During Kavanaugh Confirmation Process (Video) — The Gateway Pundit

Senator Lindsey Graham joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures this week to discuss the ongoing Kavanaugh confirmation process.

Lindsey Graham told Maria he wants an investigation of the deplorable Democrat Party antics and obstruction during the Kavanaugh confirmation.

Sen. Lindsey Graham: Here’s what’s going to happen. I’m going to ask Senator Grassley to get to the bottom of how this hearing process was so hijacked, the unethical aspects of it. The slash and burn aspects of it, the effort to delay it, to abuse, I think, Dr. Ford’s trust. So, let me tell you. We’re going to start with the following concept. Dr. Ford said at the hearing that she did not know that the committee was willing to come to California to take her testimony in a private setting… So I’m going to find out why she did not know her options. I’m going to find out who in Feinstein’s staff recommended Katz to be Dr. Ford’s lawyer. It’s improper for senators to recommend lawyers to constituents. I’m going to ask if she thought she needed a lawyer as a staff member why didn’t you come forth to tell the committee about the allegation.

Donald Trump Trashes ‘Saturday Night Live ‘ and Praises Kanye West

President Donald Trump made it clear that he is no fan of “Saturday Night Live” following the leftist show’s 44th season premiere over the weekend.

“Like many, I don’t watch ‘Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it)’ — no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems,” the president tweeted on Sunday.

Trump did have some praise for Kanye West though, who made waves for performing on the show while wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

“Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told ‘no’), was great. He’s leading the charge!” Trump tweeted.

West, 41, not only wore a MAGA hat while performing on the the show, but he also stood up for Donald Trump and conservatives in a speech that was cut off by “SNL.”

“The blacks weren’t always Democrats. You know, it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan,” West said during his final performance of the night.

He added, “There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could you like Trump? He’s racist.’ Well, uh, if I was concerned about racism I would’ve moved out of America a long time ago.”

West also said later about Trump, “Thank y’all for giving me this platform. I know some of y’all don’t agree, but y’all be going at that man’s [Donald Trump] neck a lot, and I don’t think it’s actually that helpful.”

West revealed to the audience that he was “bullied” and told backstage not to wear his MAGA hat in front of the cameras. It was a request he obviously denied. He called the hat his “Superman cape” and said he would not be told what to do.

The rest of “Saturday Night Live” was as leftist as ever with a cold open that included Academy Award winner Matt Damon making Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh look like an angry buffoon and a Weekend Update segment where hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, like usual, aimed all of their jokes at the GOP and conservatives.

Donald Trump hosted the fourth episode of the 41st season of “SNL.”
