McConnell Stands Firm, The Atmosphere In D.C., Collusion

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: McConnell Stands Firm - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has sometimes frustrated conservative activists. But right now every conservative in America owes McConnell a huge debt of gratitude.

Not only did McConnell stop Barack Obama from filling Justice Antonin Scalia's seat, but he's also ensured the confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch and a record number of crucial circuit court judges over the past 18 months. Just as important, McConnell has been resolute throughout the Kavanaugh controversy.

Yesterday, McConnell went to the Senate floor and delivered a blistering indictment of the left's campaign of intimidation and violence. Here are some excerpts of his remarks:

"Sometimes this intimidation campaign [against Kavanaugh] has been aimed at the nominee. . . and when that didn't work, then the far left tried to bully and intimidate . . . Republican United States senators. They've tried to bully and intimidate us. . .

"I'm not suggesting we're the victims here. But I want to make it clear to these people who are chasing my members around the hall here or harassing them at the airport or going to their homes, we'll not be intimidated by these people.

"There's no chance in the world they're going to scare us out of doing our duty. I don't care how many members they chase, how many people they harass here in the halls, I want to make one thing perfectly clear: We will not be intimidated by these people!"

It is never pleasant to be confronted publicly or to have complete strangers screaming at you. But this is happening to many Republicans who still have fresh in their minds what happened last year on an Alexandria baseball field. One of the people doing the screaming decided to open fire.

It is by the grace of God that we did not have dozens of dead congressmen and a real constitutional crisis.

How much more blood must be spilled before fair-minded Americans reject the far left? When will Democrat leaders speak out against the thuggish behavior in the streets of D.C.?

The Atmosphere In D.C. - Thanks to the left, Mrs. Kelly Paul, wife of Sen. Rand Paul, now keeps a loaded gun by her bedside. Here's a quote from an open letter to Sen. Cory Booker that she just published:

"It's nine o'clock at night, and as I watch out the window, a sheriff's car slowly drives past my home. I am grateful that they have offered to do extra patrols, as someone just posted our home address, and Rand's cell number, on the internet -- all part of a broader effort to intimidate and threaten Republican members of Congress and their families.

"I now keep a loaded gun by my bed. Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life."

As Mrs. Paul alluded to, a Democrat staffer was arrested yesterday for "doxxing" Republican senators. Doxxing is the posting of their home addresses and other personal information online so they could be harassed by left-wing activists.

These are fascist tactics, my friends. This is what tyrants do with power. They abuse it in order to disrupt the regular political process and silence their political opponents.

Yet, there is considerable irony here: The only person arrested in the Kavanaugh controversy is a liberal Democrat activist.

Let me give you a sense of what is happening in this city right now:
Left-wing demonstrators are flocking to Washington.

Police are attempting to cordon off Capitol Hill to ensure the safety of U.S. senators.

Linda Sarsour is staging a demonstration right now. A radical anti-Israel, Farrakhan-loving, left-wing activist is the face of the anti-Kavanaugh movement. That speaks volumes. Sadly, the party of Harry Truman and JFK has been hijacked.

Nancy Pelosi compared Kavanaugh to Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin.

Sen. McConnell was back on the floor this morning, delivering the most emotional remarks I can ever recall from him. McConnell said, "It's the Senate that's on trial here. . . We will not be hoodwinked by those who have tried hard to smear this good man."

One left-wing group plans to encircle the Supreme Court tomorrow.
Predictably, Senate Democrats who demanded this additional FBI investigation are refusing to accept the results -- just as the left has refused to accept the results of the 2016 elections.

Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein denounced the FBI report as "limited" and "incomplete." They demanded even more delays knowing full well that the left will only escalate its aggression if given more time.

Collusion, Anyone?
With all the focus on Judge Kavanaugh lately, there are other important stories going unnoticed. Here's one I don't want you to miss.

Yesterday, House investigators heard testimony from James Baker, the FBI's former general counsel. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said that Baker's testimony was "explosive," adding, "This witness confirmed that things were done in an abnormal fashion. That's extremely troubling."

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said that Baker revealed that "there was another source giving information directly to the FBI" in the early stages of its Trump/Russia investigation, a source that they did not know about before yesterday.

Investigative journalist John Solomon thinks he knows who that source was. Consider this excerpt:

"Former FBI general counsel James Baker met during the 2016 season with at least one attorney from Perkins Coie, the Democratic National Committee's private law firm.

"That's the firm used by the DNC and Hillary Clinton's campaign to secretly pay research firm Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence operative, to compile a dossier of uncorroborated raw intelligence alleging Trump and Moscow were colluding to hijack the presidential election."

If Solomon's reporting is accurate, then the FBI knew early on that it was dealing with Democrat dirt and was not simply relying on the reputation of a trusted foreign intelligence operative (Steele) as previous narratives have suggested.

That would be political collusion and corruption of the worst kind.

The left's house of cards may be close to collapsing.

But if Democrats regain power in November, the first thing they will do is shut down every investigation into the deep state.

To drain the swamp, we MUST defeat the left!
