    Students and alumni of the Savanna College of Art and Design (SCAD) are petitioning the school to remove Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas’s name from a campus building. Created by SCAD alumna Sage Lucero, 22, the petition “Take a Sexual Predator’s Name Off of SCAD’s Building” has racked up more than 2,200 signatures as of Monday, and takes aim at the school’s Clarence Thomas Center for Historic Preservation. The building, Lucero told PJ Media, “should be renamed after Anita Hill instead.” In a Sunday interview, Lucero said she started the petition after watching Christine Blasey Ford testify against Brett...
  • Kavanaugh and the Crux of a Cold Civil War

    American Greatness ^ | October 7th, 2018 | Thaddeus G. McCotter
    We are in the midst of a cold civil war. The crux? Realizing politics is part of life, one side believes America is fundamentally a good country requiring some prudent improvements upon which reasonable minds may differ. On the other side, the Left, thinking politics is life, believes America is a hopelessly unjust nation requiring “fundamental transformation” and this is a point on which no reasonable minds can differ. The Kavanaugh confirmation evinces the political abyss between us; and the bathetic depths to which this divide drives the Left to “win.” Employing the subjective term “credible” for an accusation that...

    After a day of wrenching testimony from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford — who has accused him of sexual assault in high school — more Americans say they believe Ford's account over Kavanaugh's denials, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Wednesday. In choosing who is telling the truth, 45 percent said Ford is, up from 32 percent ahead of her Sept. 27 testimony. A third (33 percent) said Kavanaugh is the one telling the truth, up slightly from 26 percent before he testified but not as much of a rise as for Ford. The daylong...

    Biden said the behavior of Republican members of the committee was “a degree of invective, blind rage, and brute partisanship that threatens not only the Senate and the Supreme Court — it threatens the basic faith in fairness and justice that binds this country together.” Calling Ford “courageous” and “credible” in detailing her allegations, Biden said she deserves to have the FBI conduct an investigation into the alleged incident.

But still, if you find anyone still insisting the FBI must investigate, please show them this clip of Joe Biden back during the Clarence Thomas hearings.

    “Senator, I would like to start by saying unequivocally, uncategorically, that I deny each and every single allegation against me today that suggested in any way that I had conversations of a sexual nature or about pornographic material with Anita Hill, that I ever attempted to date her, that I ever had any personal sexual interest in her, or that I in any way ever harassed her. “A second, and I think more important point. I think that this today is a travesty. I think that it is disgusting. I think that this hearing should never occur in America. This...

    Conservative Tribune ^ | September 21st, 2018 | By Cillian Zeal
    When NeverTrump pundit Erick Erickson suggested that the accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford was the result of a PR job, there was both laughter and disdain from the left. There isn’t much mirth or contempt now that it’s been revealed who Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser has retained. According to Politico, Christine Blasey Ford — the 51-year-old California psychologist who says the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her while they were in high school in Maryland — is receiving advice from Democrat activist Ricki Seidman. “Seidman, a senior principal at TSD Communications, in the past worked...

    Ricki Seidman, the Democratic operative who is advising Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, predicted in July that there would be a “strategy” to defeat Kavanaugh’s nomination. Seidman interviewPolitico reported on Thursday that Seidman, who also advised Anita Hill to testify against Clarence Thomas in 1991, is giving advice to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. On July 10, Seidman said on a conference call with the American Constitution Society that she believed a “strategy will emerge” that would upend Kavanaugh’s nomination. Audio of the call was recorded and uploaded by the GOP on Thursday. “I do think that over the coming days and weeks...

    Associated Press ^ | Sep. 21, 2018 4:32 PM EDT | Thomas Beaumont
    Weighing a 2020 campaign for president, former Vice President Joe Biden says he should have protected Anita Hill from what he called “character assassination” during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Justice Clarence Thomas more than a quarter century ago. Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee during the contentious 1991 hearings. As sexual misconduct again shadows a high court confirmation, Biden said he failed to prevent the all-male committee from putting Hill on the defensive. “Anita Hill was vilified when she came forward, by a lot of my colleagues,” Biden said during an interview on NBC’s Today. “I wish I...

    Matthew Dowd, the chief political analyst for ABC News, smeared Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas with a “sexual predator” allegation on Monday. Doing his part to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, Dowd tweeted that America already has one “sexual predator” on the Supreme Court — meaning Thomas. “It was despicable and outrageous what happened to Anita Hill more than 25 years ago, and a sexual predator was given a lifetime seat on the SC,” Dowd wrote. “Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself in 2018.”

    It’s not as if we haven’t seen this before. Twenty-seven years ago, a last-minute accusation of sexual harassment prompted the Senate to re-open Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas’s confirmation hearings; the ‘he-said, she-said’ confrontation was a media spectacle, including prime-time coverage on the broadcast networks. When it was over, the Media Research Center analyzed the coverage, and found journalists criticized Republicans for being too harsh on Anita Hill, while criticizing Democrats for being too soft on Thomas. Here is that study, as originally published in the November 1991 edition of the MRC’s MediaWatch newsletter: Just when Judge Clarence Thomas looked...

    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...
  • The Dems “Anita” Brett Kavanaugh: How low will they go?

    It’s uncanny how closely the Democrats are following the Anita Hill playbook as they try to “Anita” Brett Kavanaugh, looking to prevent his confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice. Like Hill, Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford is a professor who made her accusation in the expectation of anonymity, never dreaming that newspapers from coast to coast would blazon her name across Page One. Hill had received assurances from a Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee staffer that, in all likelihood, Clarence Thomas would quietly withdraw his name from consideration, to spare himself and his family embarrassment. After all, Hill’s friend, administrative law...

    Saving Our Institutions: Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has always been a man of brilliance and integrity, but something he told an audience recently really resonated with Americans who are growing weary of the Left’s destruction of our culture and society. During a speech at a Federalist Society conference in Fort Worth, Texas, on Saturday, Thomas needled Democratic Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey over his “I am Spartacus” clown show during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings last week for Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas poked Sen. Cory Booker over the New Jersey Democrat's much-mocked invocation of "Spartacus" during last week's confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh. Booker was roundly ridiculed after threatening to defy the Senate rules and release what he thought were confidential documents concerning Kavanaugh’s past, “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment,” said Booker. Thomas, who called his own contentious confirmation hearing back in 1991 a "high-tech lynching," took a jab at Booker during a conversation with the Federalist Society that aired Wednesday on C-SPAN. “Honorable...

    A Massachusetts Democrat has added a plank to her campaign platform: Impeach Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Barbara L'Italien, a state senator running in a crowded field to replace retiring Rep. Niki Tsongas, is declaring her intention to file an impeachment resolution against Thomas as part of an effort to address sexual assault if elected to Congress. L'Italien said she is also calling for congressional hearings into President Donald Trump's alleged sexual misconduct. “There is an elephant in the room for Congress in the #MeToo era. Our leaders have to start talking about it. Two of the most powerful men...
