I don't trust Brett Kavanaugh and I don't mean I am judging Kavanaugh's testimony yesterday during the absurd Capitol Hill hearing about a charge of attempted rape against him that supposedly occurred, yes, 35 plus years ago where little in the way of evidence currently exists.
Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser, appears at a minimum to suffer from serious phobias, who really knows how serious her crossed wires may be?
At the same time, it appears that Kavanaugh in his high school and college years put away many, as he put it on his calendar, "[brew]skis."
Either one of them could have been telling the truth and either one could have been lying yesterday.
There is just no way for an outsider 35 plus years later to really know what went down, if anything.
No, the reason I don't trust Kavanaugh is he is an elitist establishment man. He is a surface level member of the Deep State. When the chips are down, like a loyal frat member, he will support his team, the Deep State. He has revealed as much in his role in the creation of the evil Patriot Act.
That said, if his nomination fails, the clueless intellectually shallow President Trump will just nominate another elitist establishment Deep State man for the Supreme Court.
Liberty lovers are going to get nothing out of this nomination regardless of what happens.
But from a realpolitik perspective, it is important to note that the Left is off the rails in their attack on Kavanaugh. They don't want this guy on the Supreme Court. They seem willing to do anything to stop the nomination at any cost, and there is even talk that if he gets confirmed and the Democrats gain the House, there is going to be an attempt to impeach him.
In other words, Kavanaugh is a great bird dog. He will smoke lefties out of the weeds and it will reveal their "by any means necessary" approach. It is better to attack them when they are out in the open. So bring on the confirmation.
I hasten to emphasize that this is not because I support Republicans or conservative power seekers. They are just as bad as the Left, just from a different direction.
As I have previously noted, Vladimir Lenin, who knew a thing or two about revolutionary success, wrote long before he gained control:
We are surrounded on all sides by enemies and we have to advance almost constantly under their fire.This is the case now for libertarians, we are under attack by the power-hungry Right and power-hungry Left. A Kavanaugh confirmation can help expose the power-hungry Left. It is an ideal opportunity to expose them (at least their evil sex war). This won't knock the left out, not even with regard to the sex war, but it would create excellent terrain from which to engage in battle. We can go after the power-hungry Right when an opportunity presents itself in the future but for the here and now a Kavanaugh confirmation is a useful tool to use against the Left as they would continue their unprincipled by any means necessary attack against him, especially if they win control of the House.
