In case anyone thought the Left was interested in the facts, here is The Nation to set you straight.
Come to Monday’s U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Not to hear the charges against Brett Kavanaugh and his defense. Come to the hearing to disrupt it.
… Engage in non-violent civil disobedience on Monday
To stop Kavanaugh, you need to come to the Senate this Monday and engage in nonviolent civil disobedience with us. …
Imagine what will happen when hundreds of people descend upon the Senate at 9 am on Monday for that hearing. Imagine if wave upon wave of protesters say “no” to sexual violence, “no” to corporate control of the economy, and “no” to Kavanaugh. Imagine if the hallways overflow with nonviolent resistance fighters. They will not be able to overcome the moral force of our voices. …
Civil disobedience is an invigorating and liberating experience … There will be singing and laughing … [and] powerful stories and inspiring speeches. You will be safe. The Capitol Police may even whisper in your ear, “I support you,” as they place the handcuffs on your wrists. … You will probably not go to jail. If you do, we will have lawyers there waiting for you. — published Monday (9-17-18) in The Nation
Also today, President Trump ordered materials relating to the Russian collusion investigation to be declassified. Some publications (the Wall Street Journal is one) have been clamoring for this transparency. But liberals are aghast. When do journalists plead for government secrecy? When the unveiling of those secrets might not fit their agenda.
Here is Comrade Nichols at The Nation (when he’s not moonlighting at The Capital Times):
Donald Trump is actively obstructing justice
Donald Trump has just meddled in an ongoing investigation—seeking to force the declassification of documents and text messages that are relevant to the inquiry into Russian influence on his campaign and his presidency. The president has ordered the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National Intelligence to begin the “immediate declassification” of key sections of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act application for Carter Page … [ etc. ] — published today (9-18-18) in The Nation
It’s not just The Nation, although that publication is often on the bleeding edge of the liberal-progressive-socialist vanguard. Over at MSNBC, “Senator Richard Blumenthal talks with Rachel Maddow about the threat to U.S. intelligence sources and methods posed by President Trump’s declassifying documents in the ongoing Trump Russia investigation.” Of course, Adam Schiff is on with the ever-brittle Lawrence O’Donnell.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: It’s why the Cops Out of School/Derail the Jail crowd disrupts local government meetings here in Madison. They can’t win the argument so they try to drown it out.
