Scott Adams Takes on the #Walk Away Movement With a Truth Bomb by The Elephant's Child

Scott Adams is the creator of the cartoon series “Dilbert” with his personal take on office life. His recognition of the reality of what most of us who spent much of our lives working in offices experienced, made him a person who offered more interesting opinions than the usual ones out there. He has developed an extensive following for the videos he posts on his blog for just that reason.

Here he considered the #Walk Away movement begun by Brandon Straka. Adams admits that he did not take it seriously at first, until he  listened to Straka’s reasoned account of why he is leaving the Democratic Party, and saw that Straka was not leaving because of policy differences. Here Adams explains the difference between the right and the left. and between Trump and the organizing efforts on the Left — Fear.

It’s a more serious take on what most of us have referred to as the “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and our bewilderment at its excesses, which are not only enormous, but more or less insane. Banning ICE? The agency that removes criminal illegals from our midst, tries to get them before they commit more murders and mayhem. Because you don’t like the pictures taken during the Obama administration of children actually in cages? That, by the way is not ICE, but the Border Patrol. ICE is after the criminals, and trying to protect you.

There was just a video circulating that showed a crowd of people out to protest when ICE raided a house in an Oakland neighborhood because they thought they were after an illegal alien. ICE was actually trying to apprehend a gang of child sex traffickers, the truly despicable among illegals. Do watch Scott Adams. He makes some pretty important points.

President Trump Once Again Fulfills his Promise by The Elephant's Child

President Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Judge Kavanaugh has served for 12 years on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, and has written more than 300 opinions that involve every significant constitutional issue including separation of powers and federalism. The Supreme Court has adopted the logic of 11 of his opinions in whole or in part. He is among a younger generation of judges who base their rulings on the text of the Constitution and Congressional statute. He has the experience and intellect to be a leader on the Court, rather than a predictable vote on an issue.

Naturally, the Left has erupted with the usual silliness. Kavanaugh will end Roe v. Wade, put gay men in jail, and whatever else they can come up with.  That’s not how the Supreme Court operates. They are the court of last resort whose duty is to apply and defend the United States Constitution to the particular case before them. Mr. Trump promised to select a Justice “who will faithfully interpret the Constitution as written,” and that is just what he has done.  Judge Kavanaugh has a record that suggests that he will help to restore the Supreme Court to its proper, more modest role in American politics and American society.

The serious and thoughtful men who wrote and adopted the U.S. Constitution were intent on preserving the freedoms and rights that the country had just fought a long bloody war about. They recognized the imperfect nature of mankind and how easily freedom could be lost to bad ideas. And we always have a remarkable quantity of bad ideas in our society as in any society.

The hard Left just won an election in a safe Democratic district with a young “Democratic Socialist” who is remarkably free from any knowledge of history, politics or international affairs. Dumb as a post. And she tried to palm herself off as just a girl from the Bronx, not. She left the Bronx as a small child and grew up in a tony Westchester suburb with her successful well-to-do architect father. But she had the Hispanic name for a district that is largely Hispanic

Here’s the Wall Street Journal’s take on Judge Kavanaugh, and here is John Hinderaker at Powerline.
