Congratulations to judge Brett Kavanaugh for his confirmation as an associate justice of the US Supreme Court. We conservatives look forward to hearing his common-sense rulings for decades to come.
Democrats have harmed themselves badly with their smear campaign against judge Kavanaugh. They are going to pay for their radicalism for many years in many ways.
You can be sure that these attacks have made justice Kavanaugh even more confidently conservative in his outlook than ever before.
Nikitas3.com believes that this historic attack on a good man is going to boomerang on the Democrats in the November elections as a result of the “enthusiasm” that Republicans suddenly are showing to vote.
‘Enthusiasm’ is always important in elections. It played a huge role in president Trump’s 2016 election victory – his massive rallies showed great enthusiasm for his candidacy while Hillary could hardly turn out 200 people in a gymnasium.
McClatchy DC reported about surging Republican enthusiasm:
… Republicans are seeing tangible evidence of a spike in GOP enthusiasm that has eluded them …
“It’s got to be Kavanaugh,” said Republican pollster Robert Blizzard, coming to the same conclusion as GOP operatives nationwide: the Democrats’ efforts to block President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee are backfiring with Republicans who were previously apathetic about the midterms but are now angry—and engaged.
Conversations with pollsters, strategists and party officials reveal that Republican voters are circling the wagons around Brett Kavanaugh… And now, there are concrete signs that the drama over his confirmation… is helping Republicans close an enthusiasm gap with Democrats, which has been one of the GOP’s biggest challenges of the last two years.
“It’s the difference between victory and defeat in a close race,” said veteran GOP pollster Whit Ayres, who said he’s seeing a bump in Republican enthusiasm. “They’re pretty upset about how Kavanaugh has been treated.”
So there you go. Stuart Varney of the Varney & Co. TV show on the Fox Business network reported on October 4 about another aspect of ‘enthusiasm’ – the spike in fundraising for Republicans:
This last week compared to the same week in August (before the Kavanaugh hearings) – donations up 175%… The amount raised is up 194% …The average gift given to the Republican party is up 111%.
And this came after repeated warnings that Republicans were becoming complacent without president Trump on the ticket, a common political phenomenon for either party in the election cycle (2018) after their candidate has won the White House (2016).
Indeed complacency – which is the opposite of enthusiasm – doomed the Hillary Clinton candidacy as 2016 pre-election polls showed Trump so far down that Hillary hardly bothered campaigning. Meanwhile Trump was building enthusiasm among his voters right up until election day with his rallies.
Nikitas3.com believes that another significant force is emerging – that millions of independents and even some Democrat voters are taking an extremely dim view of Democrats in the Kavanaugh debacle. And that this will also help Republicans by tipping many crucial races. Meanwhile Fox News reports:
The historic partisan rancor surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh could wind up helping Republicans keep control of the Senate in November, new polls and on-the-ground data suggest, as the controversy appears to galvanize conservative voters.
Political headwinds normally work against the part of incumbent presidents in their first midterm elections. According to an analysis by former George W. Bush administration official Bruce Mehlman, in the past 11 such midterm seasons, new presidents saw their party make net gains only once in the House, four times in the Senate and zero times in state gubernatorial contests.
But a new round of Fox News battleground polls, released Wednesday, suggests the 2018 midterms might buck that trend — at least in the Senate, where the 35 seats up for election largely are in GOP-leaning states.
The surveys show a noticable uptick in Republican enthusiasm across the board in the past several weeks, concurrent with the increasingly heated confrontation between both parties over Kavanaugh’s confirmation and the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him.
President Trump joined the fight directly, as expected. He tweeted:
The harsh and unfair treatment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is having an incredible upward impact on voters. The PEOPLE get it far better than the politicians. Most importantly, this great life cannot be ruined by mean & despicable Democrats and totally uncorroborated allegations!
Wow, such enthusiasm and energy for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Look at the Energy, look at the Polls. Something very big is happening.
Meanwhile we know that Democrats have been in a catatonic rage since president Trump was elected. They cannot get much more angry and fired up than they are today so their hysteria over justice Kavanaugh should be seen as more of the same and nothing to be concerned about.
Remember the Golden Rule: Left-wing activists and their zombie followers need a continuing target for their psychotic rage. The target can change hourly, daily, weekly, monthly. That is what they live for – to hate people like unborn children, white men, Christians, gun owners, oil companies, and most of all president Donald Trump.
But their hatred for and attacks on judge Kavanaugh have awakened the sleeping tiger in the Republican electorate. Thus Democrats already have taken a big blow with Kavanaugh confirmed; they now are going to get slammed again in the November elections in either losing seats or not winning seats that they normally might or would be expected to win. Fox News reported:
Compared with early September, the number of Republicans feeling “extremely” interested in the upcoming election is up by 2 points in Arizona, up by 9 points in Indiana, up 8 points in both Missouri and North Dakota, and up 11 points in Tennessee. In each state, Republicans are now just as likely as Democrats to say they are extremely interested — erasing an edge Democrats had in several states last month.
Those are big numbers, particularly in those crucial states. Nikitas3.com predicts that Republican candidates are going to win the US Senate elections in all of those states. Fox News continued:
… At a rally Tuesday in Montana, Vice President Mike Pence’s vocal support of Kavanaugh got a bigger rise out of the crowd than anything he said about tax reform, ObamaCare or even 2016’s most reliable rallying cry – a promise to build a border wall.
Very interesting. At the same time, the historically accurate Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday, October 5, showed president Trump’s approval rating at 51%, which is a fantastic number and higher than Obama scored at this point in his presidency. This comes after the Fake News media have done everything in their power to undermine Trump. Even the liberal Daily Beast reports:
With Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court looking more likely, some top strategists in the Democratic Party have begun warning members to quickly move off the nomination after it comes up for a vote.
… there are growing fears among Democrats that the epicenter of the national political conversation has moved away from more friendly terrain and that Republicans have become mobilized by the Kavanaugh fight in even more dramatic ways.
“The truth is that in nationalized elections—most of which are presidential but some of which can be midterms—if the dominant issue terrain is around the cultural (non-economic) sphere, Democrats lose,” said Kenneth Baer, a former Obama administration official and founder of Crosscut Strategies, LLC. “I cannot think of any election in the postwar period where Democrats have won when that was the case.”
For the first time since the Kavanaugh accusations surfaced, a fissure has become apparent within the Democratic ranks over what the best political strategy is moving forward. While Baer said he was heartened that Democrats were still running their campaigns on economic issues, he and others expressed fear that the party was becoming too consumed by the Supreme Court fight
Good news. And finally we could never have a complete political discussion without considering the timeless wisdom of the most corrupt figure in the US Senate, Democrat Bob Menendez of New Jersey. He said about the FBI investigation of judge Kavanaugh:
“If that’s an investigation, it’s a bulls**t investigation. The reality is, that is not a full and thorough investigation.”
So there you go. The Democrats wanted an FBI investigation and got it. They didn’t like what it said and now they are mad.
Too bad. If Mr. Corruption thinks that something is wrong then all must be right with the world.
