An Across-The-Pond Perspective on the Kavanaugh Hearings

by | Sep 28, 2018 | Politics

I couldn’t sleep last night.

I was troubled.

Yesterday, I listened to the Kavanaugh hearings while I waited on my wife and daughter. Brett Kavanaugh gave an emotional testimony live from Washington, D.C. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford gave an equally powerful and disturbing account.

This is one person’s word against another. One account true; the other false. The radio station I was listening to, LBC, invited phone-in questions. One woman called to say that she was abused as a 14-year-old but mistakenly identified her attacker many years later. The plot thickened. The LBC presenter said that he believed both individuals.

I later learned that Ford has more degrees than a thermometer, ranging from experimental, educational and clinical psychology to epidemiology. Yes, I had to look that last one up.

She studied at Pepperdine, which worries me. Upon further research, I discovered the articles she penned on child abuse and Sept. 11. This is one complicated woman.

Kavanaugh is distinguished at law, which is so complex that the twists and turns corrupt even the best of minds. I’ve also heard he kept a diary, just like his dad.

I returned home to watch the historic finale on CNN. It was like watching the modern-day Coliseum in Rome, but in Washington. It was the very worst thing I’ve seen from America, when partisan politics stood in the way of common sense.

It was democracy gone mad and an embarrassment of a great nation.

The next step is for 21 senators to vote, and politics will perhaps speak the loudest. This is a trial by non-independent jury, so perhaps a coin toss would be more fair.

This is not Democracy; it is not fair process, and no good can come from this. America reached a crossroads last night. The world watched, and I couldn’t sleep. There is nothing worse than being wrongly accused. The damage gets done; there is no way back. Even those who don’t keep a diary will not forget this day.

We live in very dangerous times. The wisdom of Solomon is now required. This is not a #METOO moment; this is as serious as it gets. The 21 senators better make sure they get it right. We need to pray they do and hope Solomon shows up in D.C. {eoa}
