    Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) said Tuesday that the Senate Judiciary Committee should subpoena a former classmate of Brett Kavanaugh as it examines sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. Jones weighed in shortly after the former classmate, Mark Judge, told committee leaders through his attorney that he won't testify and that he has no recollection about the alleged incident from the early 1980s. "You can count on the fact that that letter, his response, is going to be entered into the record by someone, and that needs to be tested as well," Jones, who is not a member of...

    Back in 2004, John Kerry and George W. Bush squared off in their second debate. In one question, an audience member asked whether her tax dollars would be used to support abortion. Kerry gave a rambling, two-minute answer that ended with the affirmative. Bush stood up, walked over to her, and said directly to her, "Your tax dollars will not be used to support abortion." The next day was "Respect Life" Sunday for the Catholic Church. Not even a mention by the priest although he certainly discussed the issue of life. Kerry would go on to lose the election... but...

    There is a lot of funny stuff going on right now with regard to the Ford-Kavanaugh brouhaha. Prior to going public with her accusations against Kavanaugh, Ford scrubbed her social media. Today we learn that her high school has wiped clean the yearbook from Ford's attendance there. https://twitter.com/_ImperatorRex_/status/1042004460543672320But the thing that really caught my attention was a statement from Ford's lawyer Debra Katz. A California psychology professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school wants to cooperate with federal lawmakers considering the nomination, but doesn't want to be part of a Washington "bloodletting," her...

    Let’s face it, the Democrats pick bad poster children. Michael Brown, Jr is the face of the Black Lives Matter movement. And Hillary Clinton ,the wife of a rapist appears to be the mother of the modern-day Women’s Movement. Porn star Stormy Daniels heads up the #MeToo movement, while her porn attorney plans for a presidential run on the Democratic ticket. And now they have a new poster child, this one part of the plot to bring down men. Professor Christine Blasey Ford finally came forward as “anonymous” to accuse Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault 36 years ago, when...

    Too PC: If you needed more evidence that taxpayer-subsidized National Public Radio was just another Left-wing propaganda mill for the Democratic Party, this is it. Producers for the upcoming Indy film, “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” wanted to run an advertisement on NPR to promote the picture, which is a dramatic biopic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the infamous Philadelphia abortionist who was convicted on multiple counts of murder. But NPR refused the six-figure buy because the ad copy contained the word “abortion."

    The former classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was said to have been in the room when Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted a woman decades ago, has told senators he will not testify at next week's hearing. Mark Judge wrote in a brief letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that he "did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved." "In fact, I have no memory of this alleged incident," he wrote. Christine Blasey Ford has said that Judge was in the room...

    Senator Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) accused the White House Tuesday of “victimizing” Christine Blasey Ford by asking that she testify under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding her allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. “The White House is victimizing this person. She has no obligation to appear at a smearing. . . . I want to say to the men of this country: Shut up and just step up and do the right thing,” Hirono told reporters during a press conference on Capitol Hill. The White House has joined Republican lawmakers...

    Senator Mazie Hirono thinks Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is not telling the truth about the sexual assault he allegedly committed as a teenager. She thinks he wasn’t telling the truth to the Judiciary Committee when he claimed not to remember any sexual misconduct by a judge he clerked for who was forced to resign last year after allegations from more than a dozen women. And the Hawaii Democrat says that if she gets to question Kavanaugh in another hearing, she’s going to tell him that the revelations over the weekend—when Christine Blasey Ford came forward to accuse Kavanaugh of...

    Imagine a world with affordable, clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, and decent work and economic growth for all. That is the world the United Nations imagined when it defined the 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development with “the desire to create a future where there is no poverty, the planet is protected, and all the people enjoy peace and prosperity.” But the reality is, that world can’t exist without the equal participation, and leadership, of women—as business and political leaders, investors, and contributors to the global economy.

    Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. Disguised under the illusion of seeking “truth”, Rather admitted that the character assassination of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in the 1980’s was what happened to Justice...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said the Democrats could keep Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court seat vacant for two years if need be should the nomination fail and should Democrats take the Senate in November. Hirono said if a replacement for Kavanaugh needed to be found, President Trump should nominate a less conservative ideologue, or else be ready for Senate Democrats to keep the court seat vacant until after the 2020 presidential election if they win the chamber in November, according to an interview with Politico Magazine. “I think we’ve had those kinds of vacancies before, and we certainly...

    Today’s Wall Street Journal has published an editorial on (the Kavanaugh ambush). I detect Kim Strassel’s hand in the editorial. The Journal condemns the charade staged by Senate Democrats starring Christine Blaesy Ford: [Ford’s] is simply too distant and uncorroborated a story to warrant a new hearing or to delay a vote. We’ve heard from all three principals, and there are no other witnesses to call. The only purpose of another public hearing would be a political spectacle in which Democrats could wax indignant for the cameras while Mr. Kavanaugh repeated his denials. The timing and details of how Ms....

    On top of her McCarthyite smear of Judge Kavanaugh, she’s closely tied to both Chinese and Russian operations in the United States. To date, only one fairly obscure member of Congress has asked our intel people—in this case, the FBI--to look into the alarming case of a Chinese agent becoming her office manager and personal chauffeur. An excerpt from Rep. Jim Banks’ letter to FBI Director Wray: It has recently come to light that U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the former chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, employed a staff member who was using his position to secretly report...

    democrats have been desperate to stop the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Chinese spy in the Senate, Dianne Feinstein, has thrown a Hail Mary in the form of a decades old accusation from one Christine Blasey Ford. […]  While his friend watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth. “I...
