AMERICANS STILL HAVE ALL THEIR GUNS
…and they just might need them!
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
I have a backlog of contributors’ articles waiting for publishing, but somehow this Kavanaugh nomination is demanding continued attention, so I apologise to my wonderful writers and readers and assure them that this critical US matter promises some answers by Friday this week.
There are more guns than people in America and most of those guns are legally owned by conservative diehard Republicans.
As hard as the Left Democrats have tried to dismantle and destroy the Second Amendment of the US Constitution, which determines that all US citizens are permitted to own and carry guns, that pusch has been markedly unsuccessful, mainly because, unlike the Democrats, the more numerous gun-toting Republicans believe passionately in their Constitution (and Amendments to same) … and they have a respectful fear of their government.
The Amendment includes these words: “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, (shall include) the right of the people to keep and bear arms… and that shall not be infringed.”
If you think it is unreasonable to suggest Americans fear their government then consider the Third Amendment which says, “The United States Constitution places restrictions on the quartering of soldiers in private homes without the owner's consent, forbidding the practice in peacetime”… Hmmm, that would not hold water here.
Agree or not agree with the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights (and there are many reasoned arguments against it) the fact remains that most Americans jealously defend this right and many simply do not trust their government to protect them, rather, they believe the government itself is to be feared.
We have lost our guns via PM John Howard’s kneejerk response to an horrific shooting in Tasmania by a severely disturbed murderer. Since then, knives have largely replaced guns for those who wish to kill others, and trouser belts have become the preferred method of escalating suicides. I think I would rather employ a gun in both instances.
Actually I reckon we will be okay, but our most important ally, the US, is not looking all that okay.
There is now a groundswell of dismay at how the liberal Left and the outrageous feminist “Me Too” movement seems to have developed their own Constitutional Amendments when it comes to elections and that, “the burden of proof in alleged sexual assault cases must now lie with the accused male”.
Don’t know about you but I find that appalling legally, and opposed to the very fabric of Western jurisprudence culture.
Me Too founder Tarana Burke, I say no more
An astonishing 69 per cent of Americans is now polling in favour of Kavanaugh’s confirmation if the FBI doesn’t find anything new by this Friday.
In this, the seventh FBI examination of Kavanaugh, nothing new will be found. But the Democrats will come up with other females who will claim sexual assault that “demands further lengthy examination” to stretch past the mid-term elections where they believe they can reverse the current two-seat Republican Senate majority and arrange for their own nominees to the Supreme Court.
The radical Me Too movement has morphed into a rich white force
Donald Trump has walked a very fine, and boldly responsible line in this fracas, but the Left will never accept his Presidency as legitimate, no matter what he does, and that is giving birth to a potentially serious situation that could quite easily descend into another civil war.
Make no mistake, the liberal feminist Left believes those accused of sexual assault must now prove their innocence, and that crazy belief is steeped deeply in the pro-abortion Roe v Wade case brought down way back in 1973.
They believe that case will be thrown out now that Trump has secured Neil Gorsuch a seat on the Supreme Court and they believe if the conservative Kavanaugh also gets confirmed it will shift the Court’s balance to conservative right, and present a Pro-Life Bench, potentially putting late-term abortions on the illegal list.
So why is the hard Left so committed to late-term abortions? I mean even Gillard as PM was handing out five thousand dollar cheques to all women who agreed to undergo late terminations.
Is it a critical factor in their proposed communal globalisation program? Will these late terminations allow for the communist bureaucracy to choose who inhabits the planet? Are white males really a huge problem for Brussels? I don’t know the answer… liberal feminists have peculiar minds not easily read.
Major Press, Hollywood and almost all TV networks are working around the clock to have Trump impeached. Their hatred of him is intense and knows no limits because he represents a world they are trying to destroy in favour of their communal globe to be administered by an unelected UN/EU from the European Islamic capital of Brussels.
This is no pipedream... why do think the failed Left, like Rudd and Turnbull, flee to New York's UN? Why is the Left so intent on supporting the Paris Accord which is integral to world-wide redistribution of income?
Borders will not exist and there will be no such thing as immigration… just freedom of movement with one law to fit all. Perhaps the Islamic numbers-game prophecy is already well underway and unabashed.
America was confused at Ms Ford’s and Justice Kavanaugh’s Senate testimonies… both seemed heartfelt and sincere and expressed apparently well-recovered memories. But Ms Ford was reading from a very well prepared statement written by her Democrat paid-for lawyers arranged by the despicable hard Left Senator Feinstein.
Kavanaugh spoke without assistance and without prepared notes.
Look, I was also assaulted as a kid working for the Melbourne Goods Yard and photographically recall, from over 60 years ago, the most minute details, like slippery white tiles, lights and taps.
Long since demolished
I can even recall exactly what I wore that day. I know the time (because I had just finished work). I recall the week-old ingested wine smells and raucus behaviour. But I cannot, and never could, recall a face or a date with any degree of certainty, and that I suggest, is also Ms Ford’s dilemma.
I didn’t report it either, simply because even if I knew who was involved, what was a kid’s word worth against a dozen adults? So the next day I went to a disposal store and bought a large Bowie knife that I was prepared to use. Unfortunately I was quickly arrested by railway detectives and it was taken from me.
I was fourteen (I had told them I was 21, they knew I was lying) and after only three weeks I had been promoted to a “Ganger” with a two quid a week pay rise. A Ganger was in charge of six men and controlled the correct loading of rail trucks to minimise damage in transit. As a Ganger I could proudly display a large hook slung over one shoulder as a symbol of authority. No normal worker was allowed a hook which could only be used for hessian bags and wooden stuff… not cardboard boxes.
Workers at the yard were street people who would turn up on a Monday to register for employment and disappear on Thursday with two days’ pay, which was enough money for wine flagons until the following Monday, when they would return to the yards for re-employment… it was a never-ending cycle of destitution and wasted humanity.
I did not deserve that promotion, I understood that, it was just that there was no-one else who would turn up to work to promote.
Anyway, memory is a flawed component of any testimony and Ms Ford was tutored and coached to say she remembered Kavanough as the culprit, "100 per cent”.
I don’t believe her or her Democrat supporters. To recall an identity with positivity gives a face to your abuser rather than just a cloud of uncertain memory, which gives over to the question of, “did it really happen?” and that is why Ford's concocted memory is insisted upon.
Therefore the accuser can easily be convinced by clever shrink lawyers to “remember” anything that helps her/him to deal with the trauma.
Mr Avenatti, (above) the creepy pawn lawyer (correct spelling) is out right now searching for other vulnerable females to be used as pawns by Democrat lawyers in a desperate attempt to prolong the process of killing off Kavanaugh past the mid-term elections in three weeks time.
I have never seen political vitriol and filthy tactics used to this extent in the past, by even the far Left.
This is clearly an unprincipled political war and prescient of an unprecedented division in America.
