HOBGOBLINS OF THE LEFT

When it suits their purposes, liberals like to roll out that creaky old adage about consistency being the hobgoblin of small minds. But the line in its entirety, as written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, is: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.”

Those on the Left would like us to believe that when they go, for instance, from reviling James Comey one day to adoring him the next, they have simply garnered additional information about the man and changed their opinion accordingly. None of that little-minded consistency for them!

But the truth is, the only thing that changed about Comey is that Donald Trump fired him. Because they despise the President more than I hate kale, anyone he attacks automatically becomes a political martyr worthy of sainthood.

That is the nature of their consistency. They are as predictable as the sunrise. If Donald Trump is in favor of lower taxes, they insist they be increased to record levels. When Barack liar-nObama indicated a willingness to sit down with dictators, they applauded his statesmanship; when Trump agrees to sit down with Kim Jong-un, their heads explode. When liar-Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, a fugitive who had bilked American investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars, they yawned, turned over and went back to sleep. When Trump considers pardoning Gen. John Kelly, a man who had dedicated his life to defending America, their hair goes up in flames.

Or consider what happened to Roseanne Barr for pointing out that Valerie Jarrett, Barack liar-nObama’s gatekeeper, bore a certain resemblance to a gorilla, compared to what happened to Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump, whose only sin would seem to be that she’s related to the President, a vile obscenity. Ms. Barr had her top-rated show canceled by ABC in the blink of an eye, whereas that same evening, Ms. Bee was applauded at a TV awards event and honored for her political courage.

It’s also noteworthy that whereas the Left is always deeply concerned with collateral damage when it comes to our battling Islamic terrorism, the fact that the cancelation of “Roseanne” cost a hundred innocent people their jobs didn’t concern them in the least.

⦿  Perhaps nothing underscores Trump Derangement Syndrome more than the fact that porn slut Stormy Daniels and her sleazy mouthpiece Michael Avenatti were able to raise $550,000 for legal expenses from America’s most obliging pinheads.

⦿  Until I read an article in an old copy of The New American, I hadn’t been aware that there is a worldwide movement devoted to aborting Down Syndrome babies.

There is a part of me that can understand and even empathize with parents who don’t wish to undertake the raising of a mentally-handicapped human being. And, yet, people suffering from the disease always seem to be smiling and happy. They take pride in accomplishing those tasks they are able to master and seem to be, without exception, friendly with strangers and affectionate with their family members.

We’ve all been touched by the video of the competitors at a Special Olympics who all stop running when one of them falls during the race. They all help him to his feet and then link arms so that they cross the finish line tied for first.

I have had more experience with these people than most. Years ago, because a producer wanted me to write a TV movie about a Down Syndrome teenager, I researched the subject and got to meet several of them. They were all very sweet and polite. I don’t mind mentioning that I had a very different experience when I sat in on a support group meeting of homosexuals for another TV project I had been signed to write. For reasons that never make sense, neither movie wound up being green lighted by the network, but I was only disappointed in the first instance.

Years later, Yvonne and I wound up living next door to a group home for Down Syndrome victims. There were half a dozen of them ranging in age from late teens to mid-20s. There was an older woman who oversaw the house, but the guys all held down jobs and were proud of that fact. Again, they were very nice, very helpful and extremely appreciative of every bit of neighborliness that came their way.

That’s why I am so angry to hear that in Iceland, the abortion rate for embryos found to have Down Syndrome is 100%; in England, 90%.

One can’t help thinking that Margaret Sanger, the satanic founder of Planned Parenthood, whose theory of eugenics was turned into state policy by Adolf Hitler, would be so very glad to hear the news.

Interestingly enough, Jerome Lejeune, the French geneticist who discovered the chromosomal premise for Down Syndrome, acknowledged that there was a price to be paid by those who had it and by their parents. But as a devout Christian, he went on: “But we can assign a value to that price. It is precisely what a society must pay to remain fully human.”

ALERT ALERT

 Kavanaugh Accuser Donated   To Hillary Clinton  10 Times,  60+ Liberal Groups 

Reportedly attempted to conceal political activity by scrubbing social media accounts

Over the weekend, a name and face were added to the previously anonymous sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is now threatening to derail his nomination. Those looking to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation certainly saved their best for last, as the prior attempts included pathetic stunts such as:

– Claiming to file perjury charges against Kavanaugh, which only Jeff Sessions would have the ability to file.

– Packing the hearings with hysterical protesters, resulting in hundreds of arrests.

– Threatening female Republicans with extortion.

– Cory Booker comparing himself to Spartacus, the escaped slave who led a revolt against the Romans.

The identity of the accuser was revealed as Christine Blasey Ford, who has agreed testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford reportedly made the allegations back in July in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Feinstein waited until it was close to the vote to confirm Kavanaugh before making the accusations public.

There’s a record of Ford making the accusation in a 2012 therapy session, though Kavanaugh isn’t named in the session notes that Ford gave to the press. Ford alleges that in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh entered a room drunk, pinned her to a bed, and groped her over her clothing. Kavanaugh “categorically denied” the allegations.View image on Twitter

Fin Gomez @finnygo   NEW: Statement from Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

There is a slight discrepancy in the account Ford provided in her letter to Feinstein and in her therapist’s notes, but that could simply be due to an error on her therapists part.

There are however some other questions that need to be answered which call into question Ford’s motives.

As Grabien reported, they include:

1. Why Ford deleted her public social media accounts before revealing herself.

Ford deleted all of her public social media before she came forward, making it difficult to see the advocacy and partisanship she was engaged in the time leading up to her making her allegation public. Of course, Ford may simply value her privacy, but the act of deleting her public postings will inevitably make some wonder what she didn’t want seen.

2. That Ford may have an unrelated grudge against Kavanaugh, as his mother, once a circuit court judge, ruled against Ford’s parents.

In August 1996, Christine Blasey Ford’s parents, Paula and Ralph Blasey, were foreclosed upon. Kavanaugh’s mom, Martha, was then serving as a judge on the Montgomery Country Circuit Court, and she ruled against Christine Ford’s parents.

3. That Ford is a Democrat who donates to left-wing causes, attended the anti-Trump March for Science, and previously signed an open letter challenging Trump’s border policy.

Ford is a political activist who has made dozens of donations to left-wing causes. According to OpenSecrets, she has made more than 60 donations to liberal causes, with almost four dozen to the pro-abortion group, Emily’s List, alone. Ford also donated to the DNC, Hillary Clinton (more than 10 times), Bernie Sanders, and the progressive organizing group ActBlue.

Ford likewise attended the anti-Trump March for Science, where she wore a hat knitted like a human brain, but inspired by the feminist “pussy hats” worn at the Women’s Marches. Ford also added her name to an open letter from health professionals who argued the U.S. border policy resulting in temporary separation of some families was harmful to children’s development.

There’s no statute of limitations on sexual assault in Maryland, where she claims that the assault happened. Rather than go to the police, Ford went to Dianne Feinstein. If her accusations are true, she should immediately file a police report against Kavanaugh and take him to trial. If she doesn’t, perhaps that’s because she knows the consequences of filing a false police report.
