“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.” (2 Timothy 3: 1-9).
In the recent Senate confirmation hearings midway through the afternoon session, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) recited to Kavanaugh a Latin phrase that appears in jury instructions: Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus. “False in one thing, false in everything,” he translated. Senator Blumenthal apparently was suggesting that if Judge Kavanaugh where to make the least falsehood it would be grounds for his rejection to the Supreme Court. But I think he may have had a deeper more sinister objective. Mr. Blumenthal had lied consistently over a long period about service in the Vietnam war. It was exposed that this had been a lie, but nothing was done about it. Elizabeth Warren had promoted a similar falsehood about being a Native American. Obama was caught in several lies, but hypocrisy is acceptable if you’re a darling of the fascist media. Clearly, this Latin legal instruction applies to Sen. Blumenthal. So, when he posed this question to Judge Kavanaugh it was to bait him into attacking the Senator in hope that an attack would bring dishonor upon Kavanaugh. Even though, television commentators brought this hypocrisy to the viewer’s attention, the Judge did not fall for the trap, he answered the question with poise and respect.
I didn’t hear one word about this later, but it was one among many similar deceitful, repugnant, and shameful devices used by the Democrat senators on the committee whose sole aim was to “Bork” Judge Kavanaugh. The public debate today is stark in contrast, one side promotes a return to national greatness – the principles that made America a lighthouse to the nations. The other side holds the nation in contempt, seeks to tear down its borders, eliminate its defenses and transform it into a socialist state with no constitutional protection against tyranny. Democrat politicians urge their supporters to attack their opponents wherever they can find them and “let them know they are not welcome here anymore.” If the opponents of the Democrats begin to behave in a similar fashion, there may be riots, murders, and civil unrest in the streets. Of course, this would please the Democrats, as it would be a step closer to America’s demise. Like justice Kavanaugh we should not take the bait, but maintain our honor and see these evil people as they are, “of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.”
