The Democrats Hit A New Low in Their Battle with Kavanaugh

It was a big weekend over in the US, with Brett Kavanaugh finally being confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice. While there was none of it on the Democrat side, common sense finally prevailed when he won the vote Saturday afternoon US time, 50-48.

I mention it because it’s a big deal anyway and also because the ramifications will soon wash up on our shores.

It’s a big deal because the conduct of the Democratic Party has been an absolute disgrace. This is a party that had been in office for eight years and nearly won with Hillary Clinton as leader in 2016.

But now, in opposition, they have dragged the state of US politics to a new low. The hit on Kavanaugh was purely political. They used someone to make allegations against Kavanaugh that not one witness could corroborate.

Then they made it about ‘believing survivors’, and if you didn’t you supported rapists. What an insulting and absurd claim. Any thinking person supports the foundation of our legal system, which is that you should have the presumption of innocence.

Put simply, the Democrats tried to destroy a man’s reputation and family for political gain. Oh, and the next Democratic hopeful for 2020, Micheal Avenatti, is now utterly disgraced after dredging up Julie Swetnick with completely unfounded claims that Kavanaugh was a gang rapist.

Can you get any lower?

What has all this got to do with Australia though? Isn’t it just a US political sideshow?

Why the democrats were desperate to stop Kavanaugh

There are very important reasons why the Democrats were so forcefully opposed to Kavanaugh’s nomination. But you won’t read about them in the mainstream media (MSM). 90% of the US corporate media is liberal and therefore biased towards the Democrats. Not just biased though, as you will see…

Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court gives the conservatives a 5-4 majority. This is important for what’s coming.

That is, it will soon be revealed that the Democrats carried out a covert and illegal spying operation on the Trump campaign, in collusion with some of the highest positions in government departments.

At the end of last week, US senators interviewed former FBI General Counsel (head lawyer) James Baker in a closed door session. These senators hinted that in the interview, Baker revealed that in 2016 he met with a lawyer from Perkins Coie. This is the firm who represents the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign!

What was the FBI’s top lawyer doing meeting with the Democrat’s law firm? Smells a tad fishy, no? And none of this was disclosed by the FBI when it applied for a spying warrant (known as a FISA) to target the Trump campaign. That means the spying attempt was illegal.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Investigative journalist John Solomon has been on this story from day one. Here’s a bit from his latest piece:

There is now a concrete storyline backed by irrefutable evidence: The FBI allowed itself to take political opposition research created by one party to defeat another in an election, treated it like actionable intelligence, presented it to the court as substantiated, and then used it to justify spying on an adviser for the campaign of that party’s duly chosen nominee for president in the final days of a presidential election.

And when, nine months later, the FBI could not prove the allegation of collusion between Trump and Russia, unverified evidence was leaked to the media to try to sustain public support for a continued investigation.’

Note the last paragraph. ‘Unverified evidence was leaked to the media…’

‘The media’ — The Washington Post, The New York Times, NBC, etc. — were all in on the sting. They didn’t want Trump to get in and were quite prepared to go outside of the law to make sure that he wouldn’t.

And besides, they never thought Hillary would lose.

But she did lose. Now, it’s all coming back to bite them. With Kavanaugh now on the Supreme Court, expect to soon see declassification of all documents relating to the Trump/Russia collusion investigation.

This will expose the attempted framing of Donald Trump by the Democrats. Expect to see some VERY big names charged with treason, a charge that now won’t be held up on the Supreme Court for years with a 4-4 deadlock.

Can you see why the Dems were so desperate to stop Kavanaugh? Why they were more than happy to destroy the lives of him and his accuser?

How does this relate to Australia?

That this is the biggest story in US political history is not in doubt. That this is not front page news around the world just goes to show the level of complicity of the world’s major media organisations.

It’s an international disgrace…an actual conspiracy. Yet they reserve the use of that word in a pejorative sense for people (like me) who dare to make that claim. What clowns.

So do yourself a favour. Turn off the news. It’s little short of propaganda. Stop being told what to think and how to think. Research and think for yourself.

While in time this will have huge implications for US and global politics, I’m not yet sure what impact it will have on markets.

There is another angle on this that I will discuss tomorrow. It revolves around China and its position in the global supply chain. As the Aussie economy is a derivative of China, it’s an important one for Aussie investors to think about.

More on that tomorrow…

Greg Canavan is a Feature Editor at Money Morning and Head of Research at Fat Tail Investment Research.

He likes to promote a seemingly weird investment philosophy based on the old adage that ‘ignorance is bliss’.

That is, investing in the Information Age means you have all the information you need at your fingertips. But how useful is this information? Much of it is noise and serves to confuse, rather than inform, investors.

And, through the process of confirmation bias, you tend to read what you already agree with. As a result, you often only think you know that you know what is going on. But, the fact is, you really don’t know. No one does. The world is far too complex to understand.

When you accept this, your newfound ignorance becomes a formidable investment weapon. That’s because you’re not a slave to your emotions and biases.

Greg puts this philosophy into action as the Editor of Crisis & Opportunity. As the name suggests, Greg sees opportunity in a crisis. To find the opportunities, he uses a process called the ‘Fusion Method’, which combines traditional valuation techniques with charting analysis.

Read correctly, a chart contains all the information you need. It contains no opinions or emotion. Combine that with traditional stock analysis and you have a robust stock-selection strategy.

With Greg’s help, you can implement a long-term wealth-building strategy into your financial planning, be better prepared for the financial challenges ahead, and stop making the basic, costly mistakes that most private investors do every time they buy a stock.
