A masterclass in dealing with the left

It’s not over yet, but so far you’d have to say that PDT has provided an example of how to deal with the left and its insane media corp of liars. Give ’em enough rope, etc. Plenty of rope, and a genuine possibility that they have overreached themselves. There is no denying that half of the American population is itself now entirely out of its mind, and care not a jot whether any of it is actually true, but are content to use any means to achieve an end. And what an end: the preservation of abortion as an absolute right through until the ninth month of pregnancy. If there is anything else that matters, no one seems to have brought it up. So where are we now? First from Drudge.

CHRISTINE GETTING COLD FEET? 

Along with this.

KAVANAUGH DEFIANT: Lifelong record of promoting dignity…
‘I was a virgin’…
Never Been Involved In Gang Rape…
‘I have faith in fairness of American people’…
LIMBAUGH TO REPUBLICANS: CONFIRM OR LOSE MIDTERMS!
MCCONNELL: FLOOR VOTE NO MATTER WHAT…
BUCHANAN: Huge stakes of Thursday’s confrontations…
WASH POST PAGE ONE: Fight takes on symbolism in divided era…
YALE cancels classes to accommodate protests…

Not to mention this.

FLASHBACK: Obama speechwriter photographed groping Hillary Clinton likeness.

Nor this.

We are dealing with lying nutters. If a self-governing democracy is the ideal, it will only work with a population that shows prudential caution when others make decisions they do not happen to agree with. As for advice on how to respond to the vile attacks on his name and reputation, there was this advice following from Kavanaugh’s interview on Fox News.

I would have liked to see Kavanaugh go after the two women who are lying about him–I think there is little chance that they believe the tales they are peddling–but realistically, that job will fall to others when Kavanaugh and Ford, assuming she shows up, testify on Thursday.

Kavanaugh’s testimony will only be relevant insofar as viewers are convinced he is telling the truth. If he comes across as he did tonight, I think a large majority will believe him. Meanwhile, Judge Kavanaugh may want to review tapes of Clarence Thomas’s Judiciary Committee testimony. As I recall, Thomas put on a master class in how to respond to Democratic Party smears.

And back then, even some Democrats voted for Thomas. That will not happen again for a Republican nominee for a long long time to come.

    If anyone had any residual reason to regard Amnesty International as other than a despicable organisation, this should remove all remaining doubts.

    And what an end: the preservation of abortion as an absolute right through until the ninth month of pregnancy.

    And beyond. “Partial birth abortion” means that the baby gets a second or so to look at the world, while on its way out of the womb, before the “women’s health professional” smashes its skull in.

  3. I heard from a very good source that Kavanaugh is secretly a member of the KKK (the K gives him away).

    Amnesty International touched me in bad place when I was 13. I demand all of their funds be frozen until they prove they didn’t do it.

    a genuine possibility that they have overreached themselves.

    That is doubtful.
    More likely is that another issue will be overlaid on those of the present, obscuring the unsuccessful tactics or outcomes enough to detract from the same, while allowing any perceived gains from the present template to form part of the foundation of the overlay. In a sense, continuity is maintained.

    We perceive their ‘plays’ as discrete and linear, and thus convince ourselves that once the issue-of-the-moment fails, it and the processes behind it will be discarded in their entirety. So it really isn’t worth the effort, is it? They’ll trip themselves up soon enough.

    I don’t believe we know our enemies as well as we think we do.

    I’ve been listening to Tom Woods’ latest interview with Michael Rectenwald. The kind of treatment he is getting from his colleagues shows just how out of control this whole leftist cause has become.

    https://tomwoods.com/ep-1244-the-professor-everybody-shuns/?omhide=true

    “Springtime for Snowflakes: ‘Social Justice’ and Its Postmodern Parentage is a daring and candid memoir. NYU Professor Michael Rectenwald – the notorious @AntiPCNYUProf – illuminates the obscurity of postmodern theory to track down the ideas and beliefs that spawned the contemporary social justice creed and movement. In fast-paced creative non-fiction, Rectenwald begins by recounting how his Twitter capers and media exposure met with the swift and punitive response of NYU administrators and fellow faculty members. The author explains his evolving political perspective and his growing consternation with social justice developments while panning the treatment he received from academic colleagues and the political left.”

    We can’t all be (or want to be) PDTs but we all have to find ways to deal with this.

    It too, sometime back, stuck its nose into the abortion debate. Some adventurous, brave, caring womyn taking the festering organisation into realms where it has no business to be. To think, way back when, I parted with hard earned to support what they once stood for.

    Now that you bring this us I just recalled today that he raped me also! It’s outrageous, I’ll write a letter to the Dummyspits right away while the memory is fresh in my mind.

    Amnesty is against landmines but sees abortion as a human right.

    Landmines are potentially useful as a defence in the very unlikely invasion of Australia. Some of the more imperialistic nations of the 20th and early 21st century have had some rather draconian population policies.

    They’re well past a useful organisation and diverged so far from their purpose it is probably a good idea to wind things up.

    Disagree Steve. Trump’s strategy has never been give them enough rope. Trump attacks the Dems and the Left non stop, which is exactly what Republicans have not been doing over the Kavanaugh nomination. Now the Left and the media are smelling blood in the water because of Republican weakness.

    The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!

    Yes the Dems are working hard to destroy him, and the Republicans are enabling it.

  12. hzhousewife

    Geez – why do these people eat out!!!

  13. a happy little debunker

    Ford won’t show – but will claim she cannot because she is being ‘bullied’ or some such.

    Ramirez (wasn’t he chief metallurgist to king Charles the 5th?) won’t appear either.

    Avanneti’s ‘surprise’ might be a show, depending on how much crowd-funding he can channel.

    The Dem hope is that this crap derails a vote before the midterms – nothing else matters.
    For surely if candidate suitability did matter then Ellison would no longer be a democratic candidate.

  14. Tel

    Amnesty International used to be a respectable organization dealing with serious things like torture (generally torture by either government, or by gangs sponsored by government) also people imprisoned without trial, people imprisoned for their speech by governments that hated free speech.

    Now the leftists have gutted it and inverted the whole meaning of “human rights” to become opposed to free speech, and supporting frankly ridiculous causes like this. They also started supporting the gun grabbers. Very sad end. Heartbreaking.

  15. mh

    This is no Masterclass.

    Steve, you’ve linked to Rush, do you believe him or not? Confirm or lose mid-terms. The Left are running over the poor bastard every hour of the day and the Republicans are standing by watching.

    If there is anything else that matters, no one seems to have brought it up.

    It’s the Leftist march through the institutions. It is all important to the Left. And the judiciary is the most important part of it.

    Having written draconian, free speech restraining laws, they fear what those laws would become in the hands of right wing judges. Who wouldn’t be afraid to have such laws turned on them?

    Reverting the Leftist march through the institutions needs to be the primary objective of the Right. Nothing else the Right does will be effective if it doesn’t do this.

    Very interesting commentary:

  18. The BigBlueCat

    Sean Hannity nails it – the Dems are hypocrites. Hannity: Judge Brett Kavanaugh is fighting back

    Megyn Kelly also calls out the rush to judgement and lack of due process. Megyn Kelly Discusses Brett Kavanaugh’s 2nd Sexual Misconduct Allegation

    The left in the US (as they are here) are totally unhinged. Accusations are facts, denials are declarations of guilt, women need to be believed “because”, and men should just shut up. Yet they have tin ears when it’s one of their own. We can only hope the Dems are decimated in the mid-terms – they should not be rewarded for their lies and obfustication.

  19. Critical Mass

    The Dementocrats are playing the game of brinkmanship to the nth degree on this. Let’s hope they go too far and fall over the edge.

  20. Nob

    Amnesty is another organisation destroyed according to O’Sullivan’s law.

    I haven’t been following the Kavanaugh thing but doesn’t his party understand the saying, “the process is the punishment” .

    The minute you engage, you’re playing by their rules and they have won at least a small victory.
    Everybody in business learns that eventually. Are politicians so naive?

    Republicans in the US and May in UK are hopeless negotiators on this basis.

  21. One ScoMo doesn’t make a Spring

    Kavanaugh Has a penchant for standing on a grassy knoll
    where was he when MH-370 disappeared?
    Has he ever sung or listened to the song Kung Fu fighting?

    The Avenatti troll has given even Mr Trump a lesson.

    World class.

  27. Jef

    Ford has revenge on her mind. It was reported one of her family members was prosecuted and convicted for a crime by the mother of Kavanaugh who was the Judge at the time quite long ago. Quite recently she was shown in a video in a Gary Franchi show where she was actively and vocally involved in a left-wing protest rally against Trump. I certainly would not believe a single word she utters..she’s an ultimate liar, I believe.

  28. faceache

    Where are Kavanaugh’s parents? Are they still alive? Are they keeping proof that at the time the family was holidaying in Timbuktu, until the last minute?

  29. Kneel

    “where was he when MH-370 disappeared?”

    MH17 – interesting tidbits.

    Russian MOD has shown hand-written logs, official docs etc, that show that the so-called “Russian” missile that downed the aircraft was, in fact, in the possession of, and under the control of, the Ukrainian Army.
    They had about a 30 min presentation where they went through part serial numbers to military serial numbers, delivery etc. They also have recordings they claim are of a Ukraine military high-up saying along the lines of “… we’ll bring down another Malaysian airliner…”. I have no idea if any of it’s true, but it looks pretty convincing. What stinks about this, apart from the total lack of coverage of this in the western yellow-stream media, is that Ukraine is part of the investigation, while Russia has been excluded.

    “May you live in interesting times”.

    Are you sure, faceache?

  31. A couple of things.

    Kavanaugh can not do a Thomas Clarence (High tech lynching counter attack) because Clarence is black. i.e. he also had a victim card to play.

    Many Republican Senators are standing idle because they want to lose the mid-terms.
    These PoS belong to the Uniparty owned lock stock and barrel by the US Chamber of Commerce. It makes no difference to them who has the majority in Congress.
    These people are also known as the Never Trumpers.

  32. LGS

    What the hell does this business have anything to do with Amnesty International?
    In any case, I would have thought that organisation, of all people, would have upheld the principle of “innocent until proven guilty,” including in Kavanaugh’s case.
    Amnesty International has destroyed any credibility it had left, with its outrageous bias.

    AI thinks Kavanaugh is responsible for human rights abuses like torture and rendition, and physically attacking women. It’s another leftist attack meant to smear Kavanaugh and embarrass Trump.
