Let me start by cautioning constitutional conservatives on being giddy, gloating, and excessively celebrating over the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. College football head coach emeritus Lou Holtz once admonished his players that when they end up in the end zone and score a touchdown, act like you have been there before. Yes, a good man survived, withstood, the most vile, vicious, and vitriolic of assaults and character assassination from the progressive, socialist left. Already the left has evidenced that they are not done. They now want to investigate and impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The question to be asked: why?

 

Once upon a time, we taught civics in our schools, and our children were raised to understand the three branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial. We taught the rule of law, our Constitution, and its enumerated powers given to each respective branch of government. We instructed future generations on how these branches were coequal and that there were checks and balances in place to prevent any certain branch from accumulating power. As a matter of fact, the branch of government that has the most enumerated powers according to our Constitution is the legislative branch. That is because in our constitutional republic we have a representative democracy.

However, the Kavanaugh episode has opened our eyes to a very disconcerting development in America, the rise of a mobocracy. And for those who are observant, and not fearful of saying what needs to be said, we have seen this coming for some time. It has become increasingly apparent ever since Donald Trump won the presidency. 

The conflagration in America is no longer about political party, it is about the political philosophy, ideology. It is, for the progressive, socialist left, not about the three branches of government, it is about their three branches of rule – the media, academia, and the courts.

During this Kavanaugh episode, we saw the clear one-sided partisan position of the liberal, progressive media. I am quite sure if the Media Research Center was to do a positive/negative analysis of how the mainstream media covered the Kavanaugh nomination and hearings, along with the allegations and accusations of sexual misconduct it would be no surprise. The left in America must have this very important branch to rule. As it was once said by an infamous propagandist, if you repeat a lie often enough, it will eventually become the truth. To rule, the progressive, socialist left must own the narrative. They must have the capability – and the 24/7 news cycle gives them this – to promulgate and proliferate not objective analysis, but their ideological message and talking points. And it is no coincidence that the media message oft-times is aligned with the message of the progressive socialist elected officials. The media, for the leftists, is not just a fourth estate, it is a very vital branch of their rule. 

Pay attention, as you will see the talking points of the Democratic [Socialist] Party being parroted by the leftist media. Namely, the objective is to investigate and impeach Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and that is why the media will advocate political control of the Mobocrat party. 

The second branch of rule for the progressive socialists is academia. As previously mentioned, we are not teaching civics. So what is it that we are teaching? Ahh, that is the seminal question, and the answer is that our children are not being taught. They are being indoctrinated. Consider the Georgetown University professor who was censored by Twitter for her rant about Judge Kavanaugh being a serial rapist and suggesting that the entitled white men supporting Kavanaugh deserve miserable deaths. If we do not have the rule of law and due process being taught in our halls of academia, what are we producing on our college and university campuses, our High Schools? There were reports that college professors were giving credits to students going out to protest the Kavanaugh nomination. Should those students have been in class and learning about the three branches of government, the enumerated power of the executive branch to nominate a SCOTUS justice? Should those students not have been in class for earning their degree in their respective majors … not to be indoctrinated into ideological foot soldiers for the mob? Maybe, post-Kavanaugh confirmation, there should be open forums on these campuses to have intellectual discourse, debate, to better educate and enlighten these students on the Supreme Court nomination process and due process. Chances are, that will not happen, since you will only see more mob rule on these campuses and the most abhorrent behavior facing anyone that does not submit and subjugate to the ideological agenda of the progressive, socialist left. 

Let’s be honest, the left is not about to cede over any opportunity for constitutional conservatives to impact, or influence, simply to have a voice in their second branch of rule.

Lastly, the most important branch of rule for the progressive, socialist left is our courts. And this is the reason why the left has gone into a catastrophic, apoplectic meltdown over President Donald Trump’s second SCOTUS selection. The progressive, socialist left does not mind losing the legislative and executive branch. They will figure out a way, legal or not, to obtain power in those two branches, but they cannot stomach losing the ability to mandate their ideological agenda via judicial activism. And, since we are not teaching future generations that courts do not make laws – they are supposed to interpret laws – we have come to this place in America. 

What has sent the left in America over the edge is that they now realize their three branches of rule is failing. The American people have stood up to them, their threats, intimidations, coercion, and violence, and the left no longer controls any of the three branches of government, including the one that is sacrosanct for them: the Supreme Court. 

Ladies and gents, we are now fully embroiled in an uncivil ideological civil war. As I previously wrote in a commentary, it comes down to the rule of law versus the rule of the mob. It comes down to whether or not we have three branches of governance in this republic. Or do we have three branches of rule that influences and uses the culture to achieve its ends – by any means necessary. 

Always remember, after you score a touchdown, you kick the ball back to the opposing team. In the military, after a successful attack and achieving your objective, you must prepare for a counterattack. America, the choice is simple, we can choose to have governance that is based upon the fundamentals of this constitutional republic, or we can choose to be ruled based upon the whims of the mob.
