As my family has had more than its share of alcoholics I sympathize with Roz Casarez, “Supreme Court nomination and alcoholism” however I disagree concerning Judge Kavanaugh. If everyone who drank too much in high school or college was an alcoholic the vast majority of Americans would need to join AA.
Any type of sexual abuse is horrible and the guilty should be treated harshly, but railroading the innocent because victims in the past have not had their cases treated with the requisite seriousness is not the solution.
I have been through an FBI background check for a Top Secret clearance.
While nowhere near as thorough as those done on people working in the White House if there was an alcohol or sexual predation problem it would have come out and the Judge has been through six.
Dr. Blasey Ford and Judge Kavanaugh were treated horribly and I was shocked by Senator Feinstein. Her sitting on Dr. Ford’s letter and then outing her after the hearing was closed was the cheapest of political ploys. However after the subsequent treatment Judge Kavanaugh received at the hands of the Democrats and media she looked well-mannered.
The only thing the Democrats and their activists were missing were the brown shirts of Hitler’s SA. Both use(d) intimidation, lies and brutality against all opponents to achieve what they want. Today if you are white or male or conservative or anything other than an Elizabeth Warren / Bernie Sanders leftist or a Cory Booker/Kamala Harris wannabe autocrat you are homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, misogynistic, irredeemably deplorable, smelly Wal-Mart shopper and any other smear they can think up. Yet asked what their plan for American is there is a profound silence.
While those who have been taught ideology vs fact based history (from the late 60s on when our country’s negatives began being emphasized and its positives ignored while our enemies received the opposite treatment) might not know the details concerning Germany in the 1930s hopefully all Americans in 2018 are smart enough to see where those who have hijacked the Democrat Party want to take us. If someone can be convicted based upon unsupported accusations (none of those against the judge were corroborated) we are all (whether left, right or center) in trouble. Innocent until proven guilty is the core tenant of our judicial system – lose it and you can read about what our future will be like in “1984” and “Fahrenheit 451.”
