However, I don&rsquo;t want to look like Senate Republicans are ramming through a nominee when such serious charges are hanging like a cloud. My liberal friends are beating me up asking what&rsquo;s wrong with spending a little more time to clear this up? I&rsquo;m having trouble arguing the point; can you help? &mdash;&nbsp;California Conservative<br />\n Dear California:<br />\n Thanks to Senator Jeff &ldquo;The Snake&rdquo; Flake, your friends have gotten their wish. The Senate will now delay the full body&rsquo;s vote for one week to allow the FBI to investigate. The best way to win any argument with liberals is to simply ask pointed questions and watch them become so frustrated they call you a racist and run for their safe space.<br />\n Case in point: Ask your friends why Senator Feinstein didn&rsquo;t call for an FBI investigation back in July when she received Ms. Ford&rsquo;s letter. They will attempt to change the subject, but don&rsquo;t allow the conversation to proceed until they answer that question. More than likely your friends will say to protect Ms. Ford&rsquo;s anonymity, so then ask why Feinstein leaked her name to the media. Boom, they&rsquo;ll grab their pink hats and run for the nearest Starbucks.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n I watched the Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford Senate hearing on Thursday. Many from the left and the media are claiming Dr. Ford was credible and that Judge Kavanaugh must be guilty as a result. I&rsquo;m sorry, but I don&rsquo;t feel that way as Judge Kavanaugh made an outstanding defense of his life and career. Do you think Dr. Ford&rsquo;s testimony was credible? &mdash; Matlock in Montana<br />\n Dear Matlock:<br />\n Christine Blasey Ford&rsquo;s testimony may have been compelling and even pulled the emotional heart strings at times, but it definitely wasn&rsquo;t credible. Ms. Ford&rsquo;s story combined with the Democrats&rsquo; timeline of events contains holes the size of Dick Blumenthal&rsquo;s ego. There were too many memory lapses, contradictions, and missing puzzle pieces in Ms. Ford&rsquo;s statements for her testimony to be considered &ldquo;credible&rdquo; by definition. But since when do modern day journalists worry about facts and honest reporting? Don&rsquo;t get me started on how the media and Democrats have misused the word &ldquo;corroborate.&rdquo;<br />\n The Democrats have all been about lies and false accusations and dragging their feet since President Trump was elected. First Russian collusion, then Russian obstruction and now this. I don&rsquo;t think we&rsquo;ve seen the last of the Democrats&rsquo; new strategy which is to make a wacky accusation and then call for the FBI to prove them right, all in the name of making it to the next election.<br />\n Looking at the bigger picture, the Dr. Ford episode is showing the country what could happen if the left wins. If all white men are guilty simply based on an accusation, think about what could happen to conservatism if liberals controlled the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, the presidency, the mainstream media and now social media, not to mention the corruption of the FBI and DOJ. Yikes!</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n Although it&rsquo;s not getting any coverage, there appears to be a movement among Democrats to vote out Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker if the Democrats win back the House in November. As much as I hate to say it, if Democrats win back the House that would at least be a silver lining. Is this even possible? &mdash; Wishing Well<br />\n Dear Wishing:<br />\n Unfortunately, I believe Pelosi will survive and become speaker again. I don&rsquo;t know how she remains in power, but Democrats will tell you that Pelosi is a great fundraiser. I find that hard to believe because she&rsquo;s not articulate and seems about as smart as the typical San Francisco man-bun-wearing liberal. My gut tells me she knows where the bodies are buried in Washington and anyone who crosses her, even fellow Democrats could find out the hard way.<br />\n However, there&rsquo;s no reason for Democrats to jump through procedural hoops when a solution is so obvious. The next time Pelosi holds a news briefing, get a Democrat intern to hit her with a bucket of water and the last words we&rsquo;ll ever hear from San Fran Nan is &ldquo;Who would have thought that some little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
