Mollie on the Warpath

Mollie described in detail the slimy attacks on Brett Kavanaugh during his Confirmation hearings.  She wrote the book, along with coauthor Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network.  She predicted that more slimy attacks should be expected.

Mollie learned of the upcoming book release of a book about Justice Kavanaugh, by two New York Times reporters.   She anticipated more slime to be ginned up by the Talking Snake Media.   She started monitoring their pre-launch media appearances.   (She probably had to fight a little urge to jealousy, too, since they got the sort of media appearances that were never available to her and Ms. Severino.)

Mollie planned to be able to respond at the first opportunity.  She managed to obtain a copy of the book on Saturday night in advance of the planned Tuesday release.   That was very timely, due to an op-ed the NYT ran by the authors that launched a new smear against Justice Kavanaugh.

Mollie sprang.

She began on Sunday morning with a tweet.   She followed up with a few more tweets.   She may have called a friend or two (she has friends at Fox News, developed over the past couple of years through some really popular appearances on their shows.)

I did not see the Sunday shows, but by Sunday evening there was plenty of attention to the newest slimy smear from the NYT.   Democrats all over, including several presidential candidates, were calling for the impeachment of Justice Kavanaugh.   But almost simultaneous to this Leftist orgy of hate and slime, conservative niche media was circulating Mollie’s countervailing information.   Mollie followed up with posts at her station at theFederalist.com.

Mollie gets under their skin.

Mollie gets under their skin by skipping the obvious attack on their Leftist bias.   Instead, Mollie implements a strategy from Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

Mollie pounds them for not living up to their own standards.

We are all familiar with cries from the Left about hypocrisies of conservatives.   Leftists love to catch conservatives in situations in which the conservative is not living up to conservative values.   Conservatives frequently complain that they cannot return with that strategy because “Leftists don’t have standards.”   Well, that may be true, but  journalists  have standards.   In this day and time there are no longer any journalists who came up through newspapering.   They all have degrees in journalism, from elite universities.   And every one of them got an A in the class on “The Ethics of Journalism.”

Mollie pounds them for failure to live up to the journalism ethics they all brag about.   She gets them for leaving out exculpatory information, she gets them for leaving out context, she gets them for presenting only one side or one view or one source.   She gets them for emotional rhetoric and opinion statements buried in allegedly factual articles.   She gets right down to the professionalism they have abandoned as they rush to attack conservatives.

She zinged them:

Journalistic Malpractice.”

Go, Mollie, go.   Chew them up.   They are the Enemy of the People.

  1. Mollie’s posts from Sunday:

    https://thefederalist.com/2019/09/15/alleged-victim-in-new-york-times-kavanaugh-story-doesnt-remember-incident/

     

    https://thefederalist.com/2019/09/15/new-book-christine-blasey-fords-friend-leland-keyser-doesnt-believe/

    Buried at the end of their new book “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” reporters Robin Pogebrin and Kate Kelly quietly admit that Christine Blasey Ford’s lifelong friend Leland Keyser did not believe her friend’s tale of a sexual assault at a party they both supposedly attended. Keyser was named by Ford as a witness, one of four who denied any knowledge of the event in question. …

    I was told behind the scenes that certain things could be spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the reporters, a stunning admission of the pressure to which she was subjected to by Blasey Ford’s allies. As previously reported in “Justice on Trial,” Keyser continues to think about the story in which she was supposed to have played a part. She has both “logistical and character-driven” problems with it. Focusing on one of the angles that many women had trouble believing, she says, “It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s going to get home.” The authors previously note that Blasey Ford suggested that Keyser might have driven her home, which they do not note is a change from her claim that she does not know how she got home. Keyser also reflects that the get-togethers of their youth were not like the one Ford described. She adds, “I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

  2. If this scandal results in more publicity and sales for Mollie’s book, that would be a good and just outcome. It’s nice to see leftist propaganda backfire so completely.

  3. I got a great laugh from a post at Red State.

    Since the day of the first article, President Trump has been in the forefront of the effort to stuff this story deep up the backside of the New York Times.Now the left is claiming that President Trump is [show my shocked face] milking the entire episode

    https://www.redstate.com/streiff/2019/09/19/left-accuses-president-trump-conservatives-taking-advantage-new-york-timess-libel-justice-kavanaugh/

     

    They displayed a selection of hilarious tweets from President Trump, and then cited this article:

    https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/19/trump-brett-kavanaugh-backlash-1502042

    Here is the conclusion from Nancy Cook’s post at Politico:

    Conservatives have been in overdrive trying to elevate boogeymen out of the Times’ Kavanaugh piece. They’ve used the publication’s snafus as an opportunity to bash and try to weaken the integrity of the institution, which has published a raft of critical coverage of the Trump administration.

    Just as Trump continues to view the courts as a key campaign message and part of his legacy, liberals say their base is also becoming equally riled up about judicial picks.

    “Progressives across the country are seeing what the stakes are now — with the assaults on our health care, assaults on women’s rights, protections for clean air and water, and whether LBGT have rights under the law,” said Goldberg of the Alliance for Justice. “I think the American people are seeing the stakes of what the courts mean. That is how the Kavanaugh confirmation fight really hit home to many Americans.”

    Mollie is such a delight.

    https://thefederalist.com/2019/09/23/media-corruption-on-perfect-display-in-one-washington-post-paragraph/

    “Every single assertion of this paragraph isn’t just wrong, but the opposite of right. In each sentence, Trump is being blamed for things his political opponents have done.” 

    Isn’t that the Left’s approach now: pure projection?

    “You are racist even though I’m the one with blackface and a Klan hood.”

    ”You hate women even though I expose myself and force them to have sex.”

    ”You don’t care about the poor even though the cities under my control are riddled with crime, squalor, disease, and homelessness.”

    ”You are abusing power to undermine ‘our democracy’ even though I used every trick in the book to try to steal the election, and when that didn’t work, I’ve worked relentlessly to undo its result.”

    Yes, absolutely.   I would add that the Left cries about how ‘conservatives don’t care about children,’ when it is the Left that is conducting child abuse on a massive scale through gender confusion, sex change hormones, failing schools, encouraging use of kids as immigration pawns, and murder of unborn.

    Yes, many more can added to the list. The rule applies to almost any topic. In a way, it’s surprising how universal the rule is.

  7. I wonder if the left has determined yet how absolutely terrified we were, that Clinton would make it into the White House again? I went to bed early and didn’t watch the finale, but cried tears of joy when I awoke and Trump was our President.

    Yes, and now, every day when I get up, Hillary is not my President.

    Every day.

    Mike LaRoche:
    The best part of waking up is Hillary lost to Trump. ☕️

    So, better than Folgers? Heck yeah.

    I had both!

    And then rode the bus full of angry sullen people to work, where I picked up a safety pin to wear, signifying I was a “safe listener” for anyone overcome with despair.  Oh how I waited (in vain, it turned out) all day long for someone to open up their soul and tell me of their agony!

    Later that week we had a big supportive group hug to help us make it through the impossible nightmare.  The next day, HR said we shouldn’t have done that, since we may have triggered someone by  inadvertently hugging them without their consent. But we did it, and it felt soooooooo very very good…

    Why do you think you can always be part of the group? First, you must apologize for your privilege. Then, we tell you that you cannot be part of our group.
