This past week, pollster Frank Luntz theorized that the longer the Democrats delayed the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, the more Republicans would be energized to vote, thereby increasing the GOP’s chance of retaining one or both house come November. But it’s diehard not Republican voters the Democrats need to fear. It’s the far-left faction of their party, for whom anyone — including Democrats — is toast unless he falls in line with their radical agenda.
Take yesterday’s “bargaining” session in the Senate Judiciary Committee. After meeting with Democrats for the better part of an hour, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) announced to the committee that he would vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh only if the leadership could persuade the president to call for an FBI investigation.
The Democrats on the committee seemed almost humbled by Flake’s act of collegial magnanimty. Flake’s friend, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) spoke of a bipartisanship, which sounded strange in the immediate wake of the Democrat’s brutal ten-day assault on the character and reputation of Brett Kavanaugh.
Nevertheless, a deal was struck. Jeff Flake should have left the committee chamber a hero of everyone on the Left. Instead, he was assailed outside an elevator minutes later by a pair of women claiming they were victims of sexual assault and accusing him of paving the way for a Supreme Court accused of “violating a young girl.” It’s no surprise that Flake’s attackers turned out to be George Soros-funded activists.
But this wasn’t the only far-left assault on the senator. The Women’s March responded to Flake’s gesture by calling him a “rape apologist.”

The fact that Judge Brett Kavanaugh has not been accused of rape is of little consequence to the hard Left. They dream, as did their spiritual leader, Barack Obama, of a European-style socialist democracy in the U.S., and anyone who subverts that dream in any way is their mortal foe.
