It’s Judge Brett Kavanaugh turn before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Christine Blasey Ford gave lengthy testimony about her allegation against the judge, where she says he tried to rape her at a high school party in 1982. Kavanaugh has strongly denied these allegations. Ford isn’t the only one. Two more women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct. In all three cases, there is no evidence and no corroborative witnesses. These charges are unprovable. They’re three decades plus old. And all of this reeks of a coordinated political hit job by Democrats and anti-Kavanaugh forces to get a scalp before the midterms and derail the Trump White House’s attempt to get a solid conservative majority on the Court. That’s the prize. The Left fears Kavanaugh will be part of the voting bloc that ends their favorite hobby: aborting babies. The Right sees their base issues being protected for the next 25-30 years. This is why it’s a street fight.
Remarkable how much Kavanaugh remembers from those days. Vivid, sharp, detailed. Quite the contrast with the first witness.— Kimberley Strassel (@KimStrassel) September 27, 2018
Brett Kavanaugh: "When I accepted the president's nomination, Ashley and I knew this process would be challenging. We never expected that it would devolve into this.

Brett Kavanaugh: "This whole two week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked abut judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons." pic.twitter.com/DGhcwPJL06— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) September 27, 2018
Brett Kavanaugh: "This confirmation process has become a national disgrace."— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) September 27, 2018
"Since my nomination in July, there's been a frenzy on the left to come up with something, anything, to block my confirmation," he adds https://t.co/kFr2EJ9Z1F #KavanaughHearings pic.twitter.com/LNSX7m2pyI
Kavanaugh gave an impassioned and fiery opening statement in which he was defending his character, remarking that this whole process has become a national disgrace, and that advise and consent has been replaced with search and destroy. He again strongly denied the allegations, carefully detailing his past, admitting to drinking some beer in high school, and at times, being brought to tears over how his life, family, and career are being destroyed because some people can’t accept election results.
This is so incredibly idiotic I’m just going to leave it here. https://t.co/drbuDjyZ3l— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) September 27, 2018

The most cowardly people in politics on both sides are wondering why he is angry.— Lee Doren (@LDoren) September 27, 2018
As he made these remarks, Kavanaugh was mocked by left-wingers because this is who they are, and some congressional Democrats engaged in the schadenfreude as well. If Kavanaugh were calm and collected, the Left would take that as a sign of guilt as well. Kavanaugh needs to do what he’s doing now: fight and don’t take the Democrats’ crap.
Friendly reminder: Democrats hate us and they're not our friends.
Here are some of the reactions to his opening remarks. They’re quite awful:

Kavanaugh's unhinged, entitled rage is making it easy to imagine him grabbing a teenage girl, throwing her on a bed, and forcing himself on her while muffling her screams— Sarah Kendzior (@sarahkendzior) September 27, 2018
