Michael Medved: Dems Deeply Damaged Themselves in Kavanaugh Fight


For three reasons, confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh has been a damaging disaster for Democrats.

First, those Democrats have been indignant in defeat, and America hates sore losers. New talk of impeaching Kavanaugh, or continuing to smear him, only makes the Democrats look extreme and vicious.

Second, the whole Kavanaugh fight united Republicans more than ever before, with even Trump skeptics appreciating his strong defense of a good man and outstanding judge.

Third, the Democrats’ implacable and irrational hysteria toward Kavanaugh shows that Trump’s not the only one to blame for our present polarization.

The president may be rude and crude, but even the most main-stream, polished conservative – like Kavanaugh – will draw the irrational wrath of the apocalyptic left. Republicans learned we can only survive by working together– and fighting back.

Hugh Hewitt: Brett Kavanaugh and the Shifting Calculus for the 2018 Election


The national scalding of the confirmation proceedings around Judge Brett Kavanaugh has changed the election calculus for many.  We already knew – Democrats told us -that if they took back the House they’d move to impeach President Trump. Now we know courtesy of the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee – New York City’s Jerry Nadler – that he intends hearings going after Brett Kavanaugh if he gets the gavel.

Democrats seeking revenge for 2016’s still unthinkable-to-them defeat of Hillary Clinton are not hiding their agenda. Vote for a Democrat and you are imperiling the magnificent economic boom, the re-armament of America, and the re-stocking of the federal judiciary with judges who are not political actors.  A vote for any Democrat for any House seat is a vote for Nancy Pelosi.

It’s that simple.

Michael Medved: The Real Basis for Anti-Kavanaugh Hysteria


Hysterical opposition to Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court isn’t based on the alleged sexual assault of a teenager in the distant past; it’s based on fears of judicial assault on the purported “right to abortion” in the near future.

The determination to defeat Kavanaugh stems from the misinformed idea that any revision in Roe v. Wade would render abortion illegal in every state of the union. In fact, even a full reversal of Roe v. Wade would give states more choice, not less: there is no chance that every abortion would become illegal, just as under Roe no state has made every abortion legal.

In the end, Americans can only come to terms with this complex issue by trusting the people of each state to make their own decisions through their elected legislatures.
