The Greater Good

The Ford-Kavanaugh hearings have left in their wake small lies and huge questions.

Does the country’s most adept legal mind and Constitutional scholar equate with the highest in human moral character? Apparently, not.

And, if not, then is the Republican party about to dispense with morality in favor of the power of political platform? Because, if it is, then of what value is a Supreme Court at all, if increasingly populated by amoral, political stooges (Clarence Thomas, et al) in a world wherein, as Steve Schmidt intoned, there has emerged a “collapse of trust in every institution”?

Talk about chilling. To use the urban vernacular: “We got nuthin'”.

The Senate Judiciary Committee should be about getting at all the facts and then determining the truth. So should the entire United States judicial system. Instead, in so many cases – this one included – both have become about manipulating facts to argue broader, inevitably political, agendas, often allegedly to serve the “greater good”. Expert witnesses are even paid to do the very thing.

The reason Kavanaugh wouldn’t take Senator Durbin’s challenge to allow the FBI investigation in lieu of the committee hearing is because he knew Mark Judge’s affidavit would be nullified. Here’s hoping the FBI investigation provides clear proof. If not, Senator Jeff Flake and the remaining members should send out subpoenas before they vote. Three days remain; will the majority choose merely to save the GOP, or step forward and walk with the truth?

    A Democrat sham

      I believe Dr. Ford. Thank you for the read!

    You are a pompous ass. You wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked you in the face. As far as your concerned anything and everything is fair game as long as you win, but let the other side dare to question your motives or “facts” and you raise bloody murder. Look up the word “justice” in the dictionary and try to be honest,hard for you I know, and see if what you are doing falls under that description, doubt it.

      Goodness. Thank you all, for reading. Susan! Do we know each other, personally? I don’t recognize you, by name. “You wouldn’t know the truth if it smacked you in the face…” Upon what grounds do you make this accusation? I knew a girl, who married a Schulte, and moved to….San Luis Obispo?

        Addendum: the name was Schultheis, I guess. Thank you for reading my piece. We all hope for the outcome in this case which is closest to adherence to the truth. My entire life has been about representing the truth, as those who know me best can attest. On that note, I rest.

    Your country is rotten! surprise! So is ours (UK) – but you’re making gains on us! The rabbit hole is indeed deep, as we discover, perhaps already too late?

    Doing more to harm Christian faith

    Have you posted a single thing that has any TRUTH to it. I haven’t seen any yet. 100% propaganda and opinion. Not a stitch of truth in any of your posts. Change your name to comrade bullshit. It’s much more fitting

  10. Susan Schulte October 9, 2018

    The only lies came from the left democrats.

    Small lies are you delusional, the Ford woman in collusion with the Dems laid down one hell of a lie.
