Character Assassination is a Tactic of War



Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He will decide birthright citizenship. Christine Ford accuses him of ungentlemanly conduct--and sanitizes her history. He is a casualty of the cold war between the Democrats and America.

Hello, this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. Today I will be talking about the war that is currently being waged for the control of this nation and its people. The goals of the combatants in this war are often blurry but the goal of the side that I represent is to preserve as much of the founding principles of this nation as possible, as well as those of Western Civilization and the rule of law. The goal of the other side appears to be the destruction of the things I am fighting to preserve. To this point the war for control of the nation and the future of the nation’s 330 million people is mostly a cold one, although that seems poised to change at any minute.

Casualties of war

War normally brings casualties and lots of them, and this one is no different. One of the casualties is Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court. Today’s Report will use the battle surrounding Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination as an opportunity to discuss the war itself. Please keep in mind that the real issue is not how Judge Kavanaugh treated women when he was in high school 36 years ago. The real issue is Judge Kavanaugh’s conservative view of the Constitution when he is on the bench today.

A war of survival is a war of desperation, and the closer one side comes to losing the more desperate that side will be. Both sides might respect a set of rules for “civilized warfare”, such as the Geneva Convention, until one starts to prevail and then its gloves off for the other. Losing means the loss of everything that side holds dear for itself and for future generations, so the rules no longer apply.

The Democrats have tried very hard to destroy freedom in America. I say that with some doubt but it is true from at least one standpoint; we are no longer free to say or even think whatever we want without suffering the most dire consequences. That seems to be one of the Democrat goals then, to make only expression and thought that they agree with legally and socially possible.

Weakening of control

Despite holding all the high ground in the battlefront, such as the media high ground, the education high ground, the Silicon Valley high ground, and the high ground of Hollywood, they can see that they do not yet control a majority of America and their control of America’s future is weakening. This slipping of their control came about because of the election of Donald Trump and his unique opportunity to appoint two and possibly more Supreme Court Justices, thus swinging the ideological scale back toward the side that elected Trump to do just that.

Since there is no honest reason to reject Judge Kavanaugh, dishonest ones must be devised. Character assassination is one dishonest tactic that should be expected, after all, in war it’s quite a common tactic to use. When one has no ammunition to win a debate honestly, then one will usually resort to a personal attack against the opponent. Should we be surprised then when Judge Kavanaugh has his character assassinated, and his reputation damaged or destroyed by people who have no character but do have a lot to lose.

The character assassination campaign

The headline in my friend Richard Viguerie’s article read, “Democrats Ruthlessly Destroy Bret Kavanaugh”. Richard then went on to point out that this judge is a man of the highest honor and reputation and all that has been damaged or destroyed by this groundless attack. All true, and he has also been vetted more than any Supreme Court nominee certainly in recent years. The FBI has conducted half a dozen background checks without any notice of misconduct, but now the Democrats insist that a new investigation be conducted by the FBI, which will delay the nomination vote until they have a chance to gain a Senate majority and derail him in favor of another Ruth Bader Ginsburg or at best an Anthony Kennedy.

These are tactics of war and should be expected from this particular opponent. There are casualties in war, normally on both sides, and no general goes into a battle without the knowledge that some of his troops will die. For a good perspective on war let me quote an experienced general,William Tecumseh Sherman who said, “I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.”

War is indeed hell

General Sherman spoke correctly, war is hell and this war is no different, especially with stakes this high. The survival of the nation, the rule of law, and Western Civilization are literally at issue in this struggle. Judge Kavanaugh is just one battle, in a long war, but it is a very important battle that must be won. I will admit that this attack seems a little over the top even for Democrats and it shows that they are desperate and will stop at nothing to continue their destruction of America. To destroy a man of such sterling reputation on nothing but 36-year-old claims of a registered Democrat who donated to Hillary Clinton more than 10 times, as well as Bernie Sanders and other Democrat radical leftist causes, seems dishonorable but consider the opponent and the stakes.

I said 36-year-old claims because she thinks it was 1982 but she admits that she can’t remember exactly. There are many questions about this woman and her story and it is not my intent to smear her, as she is doing to Judge Kavanaugh.I do know however, that her claims don’t make sense and they are illogical and full of holes. Even Senator Feinstein has admitted that she is unsure of the woman’s veracity. Now the “victim” says she will not testify until there is another FBI investigation, which will never happen. This entire episode is fairly despicable, even for Democrats.

Who is using whom: Dianne Feinstein

She chose Senator Dianne Feinstein as the one to whom she delivered her anonymous letter. The way the story came out, that is piece by piece over several days, makes me wonder who is using who here. Senator Feinstein might just see a way to kill two birds with one stone, that stone being this lady’s allegations. She is in trouble in her re-election campaign and didn’t even get the endorsement of the Democrat Party in California. In addition, it is now public knowledge that for the last 20 years she has had as her driver and chief assistant a Communist Chinese spy who reported everything he learned from her chairing of the Senate Intelligence Committee back to his contacts in the Communist Chinese government. She was reportedly warned by the FBI many times over many years but kept him anyway.

She apparently has had a reputation around Washington of being in China’s pocket, so this assassination of a good man’s character might help to restore some status for her among the new members of the new Democrat Party. She could then, at the same time, possibly deny one more conservative seat on the Supreme Court. It seems that some of her tactics are for the purpose of delay until after the election in which case the Democrats could possibly take control of the Senate. Democrat control on the Senate would mean Democrat control of the Court nominee.

The left exposes itself

This smear campaign might hurt them in the long run because people will be able to see that what Senator Feinstein and the Democrats have done in their desperation is to weaponize the #metoo movement, which will serve to discredit every woman out there with a story of sexual assault whether legitimate or not. The #metoo movement has deteriorated into nothing more than an extortion racket, and for evidence just look at the recent case of Mark Cuban. Mr. Cuban, multi-billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA team agreed to pay 10 million of his personal dollars to some unnamed women’s groups to placate allegations supposedly made by some women who worked for him. So now it’s make a call and ruin a life or at least make some money.

Democrats are left scrambling on issues of national importance for after all what would they say to the American people. What they have never been able to achieve by convincing a majority of the American people of the righteousness of their cause, they have tried to achieve through other means. Take control of the appeals court system by controlling the majority of judges on the various federal circuits and ultimately control a majority of votes on the Supreme Court. When you have control of the Supreme Court, in our current view of things, the buck stops there because that court is the ultimate decider.

War, cold and hot

Just file any lawsuit you want in lower courts, on any subject you want, and then use your free or Soros-funded lawyers to litigate it up the line, and the Supreme Court will render a favorable opinion turning your heart’s desires into law. Once democrat desires are signed off on by the Supreme Court they are “settled law”, as is often said by our politicians on both sides of the aisle. A judge has to be willing to say that Roe v. Wade is settled law before he can have any chance of being nominated for anything.

Violence and chaos can also be expected as a tactic employed in the continuing efforts of Democrats to prevail. They usually have an anonymous victim, then she reluctantly comes forward and her credibility is established, she then has a spill your guts interview in a friendly to Democrats media avenue, in this case the Washington Post. Some variety of activist lawyer, Democrats are always victims, comes forward to keep the spin going and keep the process very cloudy. The weak kneed leadership of the Republican Senate starts to get cold feet and they pressure the President to pull the nomination. This time, I pray the story will be different.

Short-term gain, long-term loss

Whatever the Democrats have to do is worth the price on this issue, it’s that important to them. Present false testimony, with no evidence or substantiation, and ruin a good man’s life. Well, I guess that’s ok, delegitimize your own #metoo movement, well I guess that’s ok. What else will they invent that is deemed OK, I suppose we will soon find out, but not many things seem to be beneath them, and they obviously don’t mind the casualties.

Finally folks, I have been pretty hard on Democrats, blaming them for everything. Does that mean that Republicans are the good guys, not at all? Republicans are at best collaborating with the enemy and at worst they are co-conspirators with the Democrats in enacting the satanic agenda of the global ruling elite.

At least that’s the way I see it.

Until next time folks,

This is Darrell Castle.
