    A third woman is expected to publicly make accusations of sexual misconduct against supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh this week, her attorney Michael Avenatti said, plunging the judge’s confirmation to America’s highest court into further uncertainty. “She reached out to me. We vetted her claim and she satisfactorily passed that vetting,” Avenatti said of the new accuser in an interview with the Guardian on Monday. Avenatti said the woman has also asked to testify at a hearing before the Senate judiciary committee on Thursday, which will hear from California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has alleged the judge drunkenly sexually...

    Can't understand why are people so worked up over an alleged sexual encounter that happened 36 years ago to Supreme Count nominee Kavanaugh and Ms Ford when President Obama had a homosexual lover Larry Sinclair and another gay lover Donald Young. Donald Young was a black choirmaster who was killed execution-style in Chicago in 2007. Rumors were that Young had been having a homosexual relationship with Obama and was murdered so the story couldn't get out. Op's sorry Obama was gay, black and a Democrat

    Several months ago, the very night the Stormy Daniels story broke, I appeared on Don Lemon’s show on CNN. The producer told the guests a few minutes before we went on air that Lemon wanted our reaction to the Daniels allegations. The first guest said something trite about how “she may be doing this to call attention to herself, but we have to treat these charges against Trump very seriously.” Next, Lemon turned to me for my reaction. I really had no opinion about this story, so I just blurted out the first thing that popped into my head: “Gee,...

    In tonight’s interview with Martha MacCallum, it would have been easy for Brett Kavanaugh to play the legal equivalent of a prevent defense. He’s a smart enough lawyer to understand the state of the evidence. None of his accusers have been able to come forward with a single witness who can offer first-hand corroboration of their stories. Indeed, they can’t even come forward with a single witness placing him at the scene of either alleged crime. In circumstances like that, the safest course is to simply repeat a blanket denial and repeat all the different ways the accusers’ cases are...

    FULL TITLE -- Christine Ford Demands Hearing be Held in Small Room – “Doesn’t Want Hearing to Become Media TV Show” …Really? --------------------------------------------------------------- On Monday evening, the Senate Judiciary Committee officially sent out its notice for the hearing Thursday. As usual, accuser Christine Ford is being a demanding diva because she believes she runs the Senate Ford is demanding the hearing be held in the Dirksen Senate building rather than the larger Hart Senate building to limit media. The Dirksen Senate building is not TV friendly–Ford says she “doesn’t want the hearing to become a media TV show.” REALLY?? It’s...

    The autumn equinox is upon us. On Saturday (Sept. 22), the sun will shine directly on the Earth's equator, autumn will officially begin in the northern hemisphere, and the length of day and night will be nearly equal across the globe ... or, "across the disc," if you're a flat-Earther. For flat-Earthers — the vocal online community of folks who believe the world is actually flat and science is a conspiracy — the equinox can be tricky to explain. Without axial tilt, the phenomenon in which the rotating, spherical Earth angles its poles toward or away from the sun, how...

    (The other day) Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was in Israel to receive an award for her commitment to tikkun olam (“to heal the world” in Hebrew,) a spiritual concept that progressive Jews have long (distorted) so that their malleable religious views could better align with leftist orthodoxy. It’s the sort of convenient philosophy that allows traditions to be subsumed by the vagaries of contemporary politics. So it is with an increasing number of Democrats and the Constitution: a document they seem believe must bend to the will of their policy preferences rather than preserve legal continuity, limited government, individual liberty,...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Monday threatened to bring articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if he won't testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee. Gaetz said on Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" that Rosenstein needs to testify regarding the bombshell New York Times report that he allegedly discussed wearing a wire to record President Trump. Gaetz said that he and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) are prepared to bring impeachment articles against Rosenstein if committee leadership won't force him to testify. "If our leadership will not put Rod Rosenstein in that witness...

    Army gave No. 5 Oklahoma all it could handle on Saturday, nearly pulling off a huge upset. The Black Knights totally controlled the time of possession and had a chance to take the lead late in the ballgame. An Army interception, however, plus a missed field goal by OU, forced overtime and the Sooners eventually prevailed, 28-21. After coming so close to pulling off one of the biggest upsets of the season so far, the Black Knights had to be disappointed, but that did not stop them from showing tremendous respect for their host. This is what the visiting locker...

    Dr. Christine Blasey Ford‘s legal team has sent a letter (which can be seen below via NBC’s Frank Thorp) to the Senate Judiciary Committee amid continuous negotiations ahead of Thursday’s scheduled hearing. In the letter addressed to Sen. Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Ford’s legal team cited Sen. Majority Leader’s Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) speech on the Senate floor on Monday afternoon as “flatly inconsistent” to Grassley’s promise of a “fair and credible process.” “In our view, the hiring of an unnamed ‘experienced sex crimes prosecutor’ as Mr. Davis described in his email, is contrary to the Majority’s repeated emphasis on...

    On Sunday evening, just as The New Yorker revealed the identity of a second woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, attorney Michael Avenatti announced that he, too, had “credible information” about Kavanaugh and his high school friend, Mark Judge. The media-savvy lawyer told The Daily Beast on Monday that his client would be coming forward “in the next 48 hours” with details and accusations that mirrored those already leveled and could, in his estimation, torpedo Kavanaugh’s confirmation—all of which would seem helpful for Democrats as they make the case that Kavanaugh is morally unfit to sit...

    A lawyer for Christina Blasey Ford—the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault—raised concerns on Monday about the setup for a public hearing where Ford will testify later this week. Michael R. Bromwich, a lawyer for Ford, said in a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that the plan for Thursday's public hearing "does not appear designed to provide Dr. Blasey Ford with fair and respectful treatment." The letter casts some doubt on the deal Ford's team made with Senate Judiciary leaders to appear at a hearing on Thursday. Bromwich in...

    With the sex culture and the MeToo anti-sexual harassment looking as anti-male to some, what would you do if your child/grandchild's teacher was teaching your child/grandchild that all men are evil, there is no need for a man, and that they should pursue women instead and have a lesbian relationship. "Toxic masculinity, etc" are the catchphrases. What would you do? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/mar/09/men-after-metoo-masculinity-fundamentally-toxic

    In 1968, on the eve of the presidential election, Lyndon Johnson found out that Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger were actively working to stop his administration from concluding a peace deal with the North Vietnamese. Nixon didn’t want that kind of October surprise to shift the election to Johnson’s vice president, Hubert Humphrey. Unfortunately for LBJ, he couldn’t reveal that kind of political hanky-panky because he found out about it by illegally wiretapping the Nixon campaign. In 1980, rumors were rampant that the Reagan campaign had actively worked to ensure that Iran wouldn’t give back the American hostages right before...

    The Democratic Party’s advantage among American women suffered a six percent swing over the past year, according to a Gallup poll released Monday. Women are still more likely to view the Democrats favorably than they are Republicans, but the difference has contracted. A year ago, 35 percent of women said they viewed Republicans favorably. Democrats had a 14 point advantage, with 49 percent viewing the party favorably. In the latest poll, the GOP favorability rating rose to 40 percent. The Democrat favorability fell by one point. That leaves Democrats with just an 8 point advantage.Democrats have completely lost their advantage...

    GOP Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), a critical swing vote in the Supreme Court fight, said on Monday that she believed a woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct should speak with Senate staff under oath. "I believe that the committee investigators should reach out to Deborah Ramirez to question her under oath about what she is alleging happened," Collins told reporters, when asked what she made of the latest allegation against Kavanaugh. Asked if she believed Ramirez should appear at a Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for Thursday, Collins added that she didn't. "No because there hasn't even been an interview...
