    What a terrible price there is to pay for a judge who naively questions whether unelected bureaucrats should have the final say on what the law means to the rights and livelihoods of their subjects. Mother Jones recently sounded the alarm that Brett Kavanaugh threatens the power of unelected “agencies to implement rules and regulations, even when the statutes—often vague—do not obviously call for them, or when judges would have personally interpreted the law differently.” You see, these agencies have “expertise on the complex issues they regulate, are better positioned” than judges or lawmakers to “create workable rules.”

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says Republicans on the Judiciary Committee can’t be trusted to conduct an impartial review of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer says voting on Kavanaugh scheduled for this week must be delayed so these “serious and credible” allegations can be investigated by the FBI.

    Distressed by what he called the “human rights disaster perpetrated by President Trump,” former President Jimmy Carter said “I may have to come out of retirement to save the nation from his reelection.” “My main grievance is the blatant inequality Trump is willing to foist on this country,” Carter complained. “When I was president the entire country suffered through a malaise, but we did it together as one united people. The prosperity Trump is forcing on the country has shattered this unity and encouraged individuals to compete to get ahead. I don’t believe this is what Americans truly want. Otherwise...

    Democrats in Congress are calling for legislation to reinstate a pay increase that President Trump canceled by executive order. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md) labeled Trump’s pay freeze “an indefensible attack on the hard-working government employees who keep the country going.” The reasoning behind the federal pay freeze is that government workers already earn far more for comparable work than their private sector counterparts. According data from Bureau of Economic Analysis, annual wages for federal government employees is nearly $89,000 vs. $59,000 for similar jobs in the private sector. When fringe benefits are counted, the gap widens to $127,000 vs. $71,000....

    The Democrats on the committee are not exactly the best and brightest, or the most ethical… and THEY are passing judgment on Brett Kavanaugh Sen. Dianne Feinstein has once again put her own self interest above the country in a shameless character assignation of United States Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. My dad used to have a phrase to describe just how low someone’s behavior is: “lower than squid sh*t on the bottom of the ocean.” This is just how low Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein has gone with her scheme to halt Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the United States Supreme...

    After Democrats all but lose the prospect of derailing the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, suddenly a new accuser with a 35-year-old charge of groping abuse comes out of the woodwork. Problem is, she doesn't want to tell us everything. Christine Blasey Ford's accusation started with a letter – an anonymous accusatory letter of bad behavior dating from high school. A letter we were supposed to believe, a guy's career we were supposed to ruin, yet we were to take only on faith that there was any merit to it. Well, that fell apart, so the accuser...

    And the Democratic Party has not actually become a band of radical leftists Conventional wisdom says that the middle is disappearing from American politics: The Republicans have moved far to the right, the Democrats far to the left, and woe to any moderate voters looking for politicians to represent their views. Well, the conventional wisdom is wrong. The Democrats have not actually become radical leftists, or anything close to it. You keep hearing this story partly because Republicans have an obvious interest in promoting it and partly because large parts of the news media find it irresistible. It’s a “both...

    Full title: The Legal Advisor for Kavanaugh’s Accuser Is a Big Time Democratic Donor, Thinks People Who Work for Trump Are 'Miscreants' The Washington Post reported this afternoon that Stanford professor Christine Blasey Ford is the woman behind the confidential letter given to Sen. Dianne Feinstein accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault as a teenager. According to the Post, Ford initially refrained from revealing the alleged information of a horrendous sexual assault due to privacy concerns for herself and her family. But she thought it was her duty to come forward on the record after the advice...

    Let’s hope Democrats do not win the mid-term elections for if they do the actions of the last few weeks will be a mere foreshadowing of what we can expect for the next two years. They will stop at nothing in the 2020 election to defeat Trump During this age of Trump Derangement Syndrome, Democrats sink to new levels of lunacy every day. As Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) continues to encourage liberals to harass Trump administration officials and supporters, several crazed activists have gone too far. This week, a GOP office in Wyoming was set on fire by an arsonist,...

    The arguments for doing the converse are getting a little silly. If you’re a long-time Republican voter, you’ve likely by now heard the growing and insistent and highly concerned media refrain: Republicans who truly care about America will vote for Democrats this fall. In RealClearPolitics last month, columnist Froma Harrop addressed the woes of Republicans in the age of Trump, offering her take on the only honorable options for this fall: “You can follow the lead of GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, conservative columnist George Will and others who have fled the party. Or you can stay in and help a...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised that "this year's efforts to ensure the proper election outcome will be more successful than our 2016 intervention." "In 2016 our security safeguards didn't prevent all nonconforming content from reaching voters." Zuckerburg admitted. "Some anti-Clinton messages weren't detected and blocked. Likewise, some pro-Trump messages still managed to get through. In the intervening two years we have tightened our measures. I am highly confident that we will have the maximum possible positive influence in determining who wins." As an example of the "tightened measures" Zuckerberg pointed out that "we have banned the #WalkAway movement that seeks...

    One month ago, Michael Avenatti—the Stormy Daniels lawyer, Donald Trump antagonist, and yes, potential 2020 presidential candidate—spoke at an Iowa Democratic Party fundraiser and declared to a cheering crowd that there was “no greater question facing our party and our nation” than “how” Democrats fight. He chastised Democrats for having “a tendency to bring nail clippers to a gun fight” when they should be fighting “fire with fire.” Avenatti is the lead storm chaser in a little-noticed front in the 2020 Democratic presidential campaign: Who can out-Trump the sitting president by going the furthest to break procedural “norms”? Even if...

    Insurgent Democratic women running for Congress are pushing the party to rethink its approach to politics if they retake control of Capitol Hill in the fall. At the annual meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus Friday, black female candidates who prevailed in primaries over established incumbents said it’s time for a conversation about how the party is structured. They expressed frustration that the party is tilted against rising politicians — especially those of color — and argued that if Democrats flip the House in November, it would be the result of organization and turnout amount black voters, particularly women.

    Vanecko and Davis. Their firm made millions in fees even as retirement plans for teachers, cops, other Chicago city workers suffered big losses. A dozen years ago, five financially strapped city of Chicago pension funds invested $68 million in a shaky real estate deal put together by a former boss of resident Barack Obama and a nephew of Mayor Richard M. Daley. It was a high-risk investment. Allison S. Davis — who once headed a small Chicago law firm that gave Obama his first job out of Harvard Law School — and Daley nephew Robert G. Vanecko even warned in...

I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” Judge Kavanaugh said in a statement. ~snip~ Dozens of women who say they knew him from high school, having attended all-girls schools in the area, came forward Friday to defend the judge in a public letter.

    A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Dianne Feinstein is a Judas goat. She, like Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Richard Blumenthal, to name just a few, are leading the Democratic Party over a cliff to its certain end among all civilized people. While there is a percentage of the left that strongly approves, in fact encourages the kind of despicable behavior we saw at the Kavanaugh hearings, people who are invigorated by groups like Occupy Wall Street, Black...

    The socialist insurgency against establishment Democrats in New York emerged triumphant as no less than 6 far left candidates defeated establishment Democrats in races for the state senate. New York Times: Years of anger at a group of Democratic state senators who had collaborated with Republicans boiled over on Thursday, as primary voters ousted nearly all of them in favor of challengers who had called them traitors and sham progressives. The losses were not only a resounding upset for the members of the Independent Democratic Conference, who outspent their challengers several times over, but also a sign that the...
