To the editor,

It seems our liberal professor and Herald columnist Lloyd Omdahl thinks he can adjourn the court on Brett Kavanaugh. He is trying to tell us his liberal opinions are the same as public opinion. He is wrong as usual. Brett Kavanaugh did review Roe v. Wade and on TV said it was established precedent so he would do nothing to overthrow it.

There are four branches of government. Professor Omdahl doesn't seem to know that the fourth branch is the voters. Brett Kavanaugh knows that. The voters are getting more disenchanted with Roe v. Wade.

Yes, civility was cast to the wind and polarized everyone. Sen. Feinstein held Dr. Blasey Ford as her ace card to play against Justice Kavanaugh. Dr. Ford didn't want her experience to go public. And it was obvious on TV. The questioning showed she was unable to prove her accusation. She had no corroborating witness. The FBI later never found any proof or witnesses.

But the Democrats all dutifully agreed that she was credible. Professor Omdahl, that is what threw out civility and polarized conflict. Your Democrats did it.

In the MeToo movement, we saw, as the professor says, "women are particularly sensitive to sexual abuse." The truth is that by so many of their actions, many of these women brought in on themselves. Dr. Blasey Ford said she was abused. No one forced her to go to a drinking party. She said she had only one beer. You may need to go to the bathroom after six beers, not one.

I'm surprised that a man with all the education or government Lloyd Omdahl has would be so silly to say "Trump did not really win the presidency. Hillary Clinton was elected by the people because she got more votes."

Doesn't the learned professor know that the Electoral College was devised by the authors of the Constitution to protect states like North Dakota with low populations? Otherwise, states on the coasts would always choose the president.

Now in the week's editorial, Professor Omdahl tells us "you can't trust the voters."

When you read it you see that he believes the only voters he wants to trust are the ones the Democrats can maneuver and influence to vote the Democratic line.
