Response to Kelly Scoles' "Second Opinion"

Hi Kelly,
"Theater" has always been part of political debate. The challenge is always to separate phony grandstanding from attempts to highlight critical issues. Theater can be overdone, witness Senator Cory Booker's tearful acknowledgement of Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson's virtue. But the treatment of the last couple of SCOTUS nominees (Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett) was so outrageously disgraceful that I finally lost all respect for the Judiciary Committee and the process itself. This disgusting proceeding has been a Democratic "lynching" party since the 1987 rejection of the distinguished (Reagan nominated) Judge Robert Bork.

Then, there was more excruciating theater at the expense of Justice Clarence Thomas, made infamous by one Anita Hill, where Thomas accused the Committee of "judicial lynching". Remember that? But the Kavanaugh hearing was the worst, with those utterly defamatory sexual assault allegations (gang rape). Or maybe it was that Hawaiian pig, Senator Mazie Hirono, who had the insolence to ask SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett, "Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?" This swinish inquiry, of course, was Hirono's attempt to humiliate Judge Barrett. Makes me wonder whether Hirono was speaking from personal experience.

Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson will certainly be approved by this Committee because she's a ringer, a radical progressive judge who is deeply prejudiced towards criminal tolerance - in particular, tolerance of child molesters and pornographers. Most medical experts on this subject claim these felons can never be normalized, and my strong concern centers on Judge Brown's lenient sentencing for pedophiles, well under official sentencing guidelines. It's a core concern. Incidentally, Kelly, do you really doubt the existence and deadly nature of "pedophile rings"? If so, educate yourself by spending some time at our southern border where little girls are most at risk from traffickers. You think that Josh Hawley (R-MO) "showed an unusually keen interest in the details of rapes and molestations..."? "Unusually keen"? His JOB is to protect against the crimes of pedophiles and all other sex predators who aggressively ply their trade on our border.

Judge Brown really couldn't define "woman"? How difficult should that be? How about, a human being who has XX chromosomes? A quick fact check: "...also known as the sex chromosomes, determine the biological sex of an individual: females inherit an X chromosome from the father for a XX genotype, while males inherit a Y chromosome from the father for a XY genotype (mothers only pass on X chromosomes)." Brown's decisions in these cases land well below suggested judgment norms. Could her refusal to tell us what a woman is possibly hide a personal ideological conviction which rejects the scientific fact that there are only two sexes? If so, I wonder what group would benefit from such a bias.

As for the difference between the Declaration and the Constitution, the former states the reasons for seeking independence, while the latter expresses the law, the rules we follow to maintain that ideal. Together they express the foundation of our successful independence. You mock Senator Marsha Blackburn's (R-TN) education and state. I applaud her intelligence, patriotism and common sense. Much better than Jill Biden's humorous scholastic endeavors: Dec 15, 2020 Dr. Jill Biden WSJ op-ed by Joseph Epstein. This column much more authoritative than Twitter.
Lastly, you say, "We will see whether Republicans want a two-Party democratic political system..." "What you get with a one-Party system is a dictatorship. Check out Putin to see what that means." I don't have to look at Russia. I live in California! Dem. supermajority forever. Just take a look at Governor Gavin Newsom - that hair, those hands, those snappy teeth; they reek dictatorship!
