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.
