Sorry children, your tantrum’s over. Time for the grownups to vote for his confirmation.
They threw every scorched earth tactic they could muster against the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
The left’s last hope was that they could dig up something — anything– against Judge Kavanaugh.
The FBI report has come back, and the activists are sure to be disappointed. Let’s recap just HOW hard they’ve been fighting to discredit him from the beginning until now.
Protesters were in full gear denouncing Kavanaugh (and the other short-list candidates) even before he was named. They were determined to oppose ANYONE nominated.
Got my first activist email opposing Kavanaugh, from Democracy for America. Spot the find/replace problem:
SCOTUS: DFA will fight Kavanaugh, says she "represents a generational assault on justice, freedom, core democratic values"

They threw together a protest group — Demand Justice — and Soros proxies dumped a metric crapton of money into it. This of course, helped organizers do stupid things to pressure the vote to go ‘their’ way. We’ve covered the claims that people were paid to cause a scene and get themselves arrested during the Hearings.
There were public confrontations in restaurants (and elevators). There were Doxxing incidents. We now know that a prof from one University in Maine was even offering a ‘popup’ credit to go to DC and harass their Senator.
But their BIG play was Feinstein. She had the opportunity to use the Senate’s resources to honor the privacy of Professor Ford, and have closed-door hearings, whether in DC, or elsewhere to determine what her claims were, and whether they could — or even should — be raised in context of these hearings. Instead she connected Ford to an activist Democrat lawyer who may have just represented her in with such expert counsel so as to set her on a course to perjury charges.
The time of hearings came and went. Feinstein sprung this when a vote was to be called. She and Kavanaugh were both thrust into the national limelight where they became a spectacle. What will become of her reputation — now that holes are emerging in her story — remains to be seen.
They made a play and pushed for an FBI investigation, even though it would change nothing.
Judge Kavanaugh — until now, a public servant with a spotless reputation — has his personal and public reputation reduced to tatters. He will hear the word ‘rapist’ muttered under strangers’ breath as they pass him on the street even though his own ACCUSER stopped short of calling him that.
But for all that, the investigation went forward. The Prosecutor that asked questions of Ford gave her report. (It pointed out a LOT of questionable details in her testimony.)
And today, Senators in the Committee will seeing that FBI report. And then, only under tightly controlled circumstances.
The White House has found no corroboration of the allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after examining interview reports from the FBI’s latest probe into the judge’s background, according to people familiar with the matter.
Raj Shah, spokesman for the White House, said in a statement early Thursday morning: “The White House has received the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s supplemental background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh, and it is being transmitted to the Senate.”
He added that senators “have been given ample time to review this seventh background investigation.” Mr. Shah continued: “With this additional information, the White House is fully confident the Senate will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
President Trump late Wednesday tweeted praise for his Supreme Court nominee. “Wow, such enthusiasm and energy for Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” he wrote, calling the judge “a fine man and great intellect.”
