Three Texas Doctors: We Saw Protesters Paid in Cash to Disrupt Brett Kavanaugh's Hearing
As USA Really reported earlier, the war between supporters of president Trump and the elite groups defending the interests of international financiers is only going to keep intensifying. Decades of power and influence are at stake, meaning that Trump's opponents are willing to stoop to any low in order to defeat him. The fight for the coming appointment to the Supreme Court is a key battlefield for many liberals.
Liberals are willing to use any dirty trick or bureaucratic obstacle to stall the appointment process, including putting out thousands of pages of documents that cannot possibly be read in the time the evening before meetings, or hiring protesters to cause a scene in the court house.
Below are the testimonies of three Texas doctors who say they witnessed protesters being paid in cash to cause trouble during the appointment hearing, including in the public line for access to the hearing, this Tuesday on Capitol Hill.
This morning I was arrested with women from @womensmarch @CPDAction @lsarsour @jeppsaddison @HeidiSpeaks @woodra @WaywardWinifred. Proud to stand with them, and stand up for equal rights. #StopKavanaugh #BrettBye https://t.co/udURRL5vH5— Piper Perabo (@PiperPerabo) September 4, 2018
ADAM W. SCHINDLER: We are here in the line for public tickets to the Supreme Court hearing in Washington D.C.... day one... there has been a little bit of chaos here, some interesting things were going on in the line... These are not random protests, and we've got some eyewitnesses here to tell you what really happened in line this morning in D.C.
TOM SCHLUETER, TEXAS: Hello, I'm Dr. Tom Schlueter from Texas, we came here to participate in the hearings, and got in the line early. They told us to be here at 8:00, 8:30 at the latest, in order to have a chance to get into the hearings. We got here at about 8:15 and there was already 100 people in line, and most of them would be probably classified as 'opposing everything going on with Judge Kavanaugh,' and so we began to see things unfolding in line that prevented it from going ahead.
At a certain point I noticed that a few people had come along holding bags of money. People in the line would just hand them a piece of paper, and then they would give them money. So we know money was exchanged for some of the people to be here to protest.
There was no depth to their understanding, they were just here to serve as a disruption. They were actually told, we heard them say this, 'when you go in, we want you to yell, to scream, and even possibly to get arrested.' That is just some of what we saw happening out there.
DOCTOR CHRIS DUNDAS, CORPUS CHRISTI: Hey guys, I'm Dr. Chris Dundas from Corpus Christi in Texas, we're up here for these hearings. I gotta tell you, it was very sad. This was a very time-honored institution in the past, and these young people (mostly young people, but some old people too) they seem to have no heartfelt convictions about why they are here. If you have to pay somebody to protest, that's a good tell... Being arrested and being proud of it. Some women came back from these hearings and they seemed disappointed they were not arrested...
DOCTOR BURTON PURVIS, ARLINGTON: Good afternoon, I'm doctor Morton Purvis from Arlington. The experience I shared with these other three guys was quite an enlightening one. I took off my credentials and walked among the people to get more information and be more acceptable to those around us. It was quite interesting listening to their attitudes and hearing about why they were here and what they wanted to do.
The most telling thing was listening to them giving their names and addresses, so that if someone gets arrested, they would have a record of it and be able to celebrate those who were arrested. They had no regard for any open discussion or even the possibility of being convinced of anything, all the wanted to do was cause a disruption.
Look who joined the party today. Contrary to @CoryBooker this was not “democracy in action”. It’s paid activism in action. Which I suppose is a certain kind of democracy. Just not the kind this #texan thinks is bennificial. #KavanaughConfirmationHearing pic.twitter.com/Viv8vui2u8— Adam W. Schindler (@AdamSchindler) September 4, 2018
