If you missed yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, you missed some real fireworks. Here are a few of the most revealing and significant moments from yesterday’s hearing.
Judge Kavanaugh first became emotional when sharing a story about his 10 year-old daughter, Eliza, saying they should pray for Dr. Ford during her nighttime prayers.
What does that tell you about the atmosphere in the Kavanaugh household during what must have been one of the worst weeks of their lives?
It tells you that those young girls were not hearing bitter parents berating a woman who was being used by the left to destroy their father. What they likely heard was compassion and grace from Brett and Ashley Kavanaugh.
But as Judge Kavanaugh was telling this story, I couldn’t help but notice the anguish on Mrs. Kavanaugh’s face, who was sitting behind her husband as he struggled at times to speak.
Watch this video of Ashley Kavanaugh. I think you can say with certainty that every liberal senator in that room and every left-wing commentator have abused Ashley Kavanaugh and her daughters.
“I intend no ill will toward Dr. Ford,” a tearful Brett Kavanaugh says. “The other night, Ashley and my daughter Eliza said their prayers, and little Eliza, all of 10 years old, said to Ashley, ‘We should pray for the woman.’ That’s a lot of wisdom from a 10 year old.” pic.twitter.com/sdhkgXiTTy

I wrote yesterday that Judge Kavanaugh indicted the left’s “rule or ruin” agenda more effectively than even my friend Clarence Thomas did.
He looked at one left-wing senator after another and denounced their outrageous statements. He called out senators for saying Kavanaugh and his supporters are evil. He called out the left-wing groups that are smearing him. And he called out the Clintons for seeking revenge for his service on Ken Starr’s team.
No doubt one of the most powerful moments was Senator Lindsey Graham’s epic rant. I believe those five minutes will go down in American political history.
I know Graham has often disappointed conservatives. But he nailed liberals to the wall and put wavering Republicans on notice. Here’s some of what he said:
“If you [Democrats] wanted a FBI investigation, you could have come to us. What you want to do is destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020. You’ve said that, not me. . .
“This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics. And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to this guy. . . Boy, you all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham. . .
“To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you’re legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics.”
I was also struck by the way the hearing ended. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Judge Kavanaugh if he believed in God. He immediately answered, “I do.”
So Kennedy told the judge to look him in the eye and swear “in front of God and country” that he did not assault Christine Ford, Deborah Ramirez or Julie Swetnick. It was a great bookend to little Eliza’s prayer. Watch it here.
Not Over Yet
My friends, steel yourselves. You must understand how big this battle is.
This is not normal politics anymore. This is not about governing. This battle is about control. And if the left gets power again, it is making it clear that there will be no more “constitutional niceties.”
Believe it or not, progressive politicians are vowing to investigate Justice Kavanaugh if he is confirmed and if they regain power after the elections.
But that’s not all. Hillary Clinton’s supporters and former campaign aides are already plotting to impeach Justice Kavanaugh if he is confirmed.
The Constitution was meant to limit government, to protect the people from government control. Yet we have heard time and time again that there is no presumption of innocence for Judge Kavanaugh. Who’s next for the left’s kangaroo courts and mob justice?
This must not be America’s future!
