Just another opinion, analysis and speculation job by E. Pat – In 1970 David Horowitz was a 31-year-old leader of the New Left and co-editor of the radical magazine Ramparts.
In the July 1970 issue, he and his co-editor wrote: “The system cannot be revitalized; it must be overthrown. As humanly as possible, but by any means necessary.”
In the 1960’s Horowitz was a founding intellectual member of the New Left in the 1960s, and an advocate for civil rights and equality. This makes him somewhat of an expert on how the left thinks and to what lengths they’re prepared to go to achieve their goals.
It was this realization that led Horowitz to become a leading intellectual conservative, in large part because while he realizes there’s plenty of room to improve society, the left simply has no answers
We have watched this play out over the past decade. Barack Obama, the left’s cherished leader, seemingly turned the government into a hammer to be used against his political opponents.
The Obama administration apparently weaponized the IRS for political targeting; weaponized the DOJ and FBI for political targeting; weaponized the intelligence community for political activism; created new legal theories around ‘disparate impact’ to weaponize the National Labor Relations Board; and generally used embedded officials to advance far-left political interests across the spectrum of govt, or so it seems from where I sit.
Now they are targeting Justice Brett Kavanaugh to delegitimize the Supreme Court and, with that, the decisions that will be forthcoming. Particularly the potential for a decision that overturns Roe v. Wade.
Abortion has become the sacrament of the left.
(Catholic Journal) “… Supporting abortion has become a non-negotiable requirement for every Democratic candidate above the level of dogcatcher…
“But there is another, even more substantial reason for referring to abortion as the Democrats’ sacrament—because they treat their approval of it as an article of faith rather than a matter of judgment or opinion.”
In a speech Christine Blasey Ford’s attorney Deborah Katz gave after Kavanaugh was approved by the Senate, Katz said their goal was to put an “asterisk” on a prediction that Kavanaugh would rule to limit Roe v. Wade.
She did not say that their goal was justice, her statement, to me, sought to imply they came forward specifically to delegitimize future Kavanaugh decisions and, more broadly, delegitimize future decisions of the conservative court.
To that end, Marxist mouthpiece, The New York Times claimed Saturday that a new accuser witnessed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh committing an act of sexual misconduct as a freshman at Yale University.
The Times‘ Robin Pogrebin & Kate Kelly reported:
We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. [Deborah] Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)
Read that again. The writer’s “corroborated” Stier’s story with two unnamed sources whose source is… Stier. This appears to me to be the same level of circular reporting that allegedly underpinned the FBI’s abuse of the FISA process based on a phony dossier.
Oh… and this: The alleged victim HERSELF denies any knowledge of it.

Who is Mr. Stier?
Is that the same Max Stier who was one of Clinton’s defense attorneys? Yes, yes it is. https://t.co/JAM4rdDViy

Well, Stier cut his teeth with the law firm of Williams and Connolly. Sound familiar? It should. David Kendall is a partner at Williams and Connolly. He’s also the attorney who represented Hillary Clinton during the FBI’s bogus investigation of her email scandal.
Yes, I believe it was bogus, and I am not alone in that belief. Kendall, who also represented other targets of the same investigation (Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, et al) was allowed to cull through their emails and decide what would be turned over to the FBI.
Kendall was potentially allowed to scrub the evidence before the FBI got their hands on it. In what world is that acceptable? As well, from what I can gather, neither Kendall, nor the associates who assisted him, had the necessary security clearances to even view the former secretary of state’s emails.
By comparison, Sidney Powell, attorney for Michael Flynn, has been refused the clearance necessary to view what may be exculpatory evidence against the lt. General.
This is Williams and Connolly, and these are apparently the politically connected lawyers they breed.
And this is Max Stier:
Stier’s wife, Florence Yu Pan, was nominated to serve as a federal district judge for the District Court of D.C., but her nomination expired with the end of the 114th Congress. That had to have been a bitter pill to swallow for both Yu Pan and Max Stier.
Yu Pan also had ties to the U.S. District Court for the SDNY during the Clinton administration (1993-1994), currently a hotbed of virulent anti-Trump activity.
Support for Stier came from the likes of Jennifer Rubin and Elizabeth Warren:
This Jennifer Rubin:
I know Max Stier. He is scrupulously honest and nonpartisan.

“It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose — we have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican party. We have to level them because if there are survivors — if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again.”
Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him. Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.
— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) September 15, 2019
Sorry Elizabeth, but there was nothing rushed about the Kavanaugh nomination.
The Senate Judiciary Committee under its chairman, Charles Grassley (R-IA), had delayed the confirmation vote in order to give Blasey Ford ample time to appear and present her case, and for the FBI to conduct a second investigation of her allegations.
As CNN reported at the time:
“I’ve ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh’s file,” Trump said in a statement.
New Yorker Kavanaugh allegation story has it all: 35 years ago. Accuser was drunk. 'Significant gaps' in her memory, recovered recently with help of lawyer. Memories fuzzy all 'round. Some say never happened. Accuser 'never described incident until Brett's SCOTUS nomination.'

"It’s as if liberal editors reined in neo-Marxist writers but couldn’t do so coherently, and lost the plot at times. Which is a good way of understanding the NYT as a whole right now."
— Andrew Sullivan (@sullydish) September 13, 2019
(Conservative Treehouse) “… In the last few months the Supreme Court has been moving toward eliminating the ability of Lawfare allied federal judges from ordering nationwide injunctions. The latest SCOTUS decision was 7-2 to stop this Lawfare practice. If activist judges are stopped from blocking executive branch policy, this creates a serious problem for the Lawfare Alliance.
Simultaneously, President Trump is filling vacancies on the federal bench at a strong rate. President Trump has now appointed 150 federal judges into the judicial bloodstream. This further impedes the ability of the ideological Lawfare Alliance to achieve their objectives.
With the Supreme Court tenuously holding a 5-4 conservative outlook, and the strong possibility the loss of Justice Ginsburg might create a 6-3 court, the Lawfare group is now lashing out and planning for ways to retain their position.
Update: Fox News reports “NYT updates Kavanaugh ‘bombshell’ to note accuser doesn’t recall alleged assault”
Fox News goes on to claim that:
“The New York Times suddenly made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh.
The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no other comment about the episode.”
Sounds like the Dems are willing to burn the nation down, and anyone in their way, but why would they be so bold and in need to this to happen now? DECLASSIFICATION? Time will tell ….
