  • Violence? It's Not Only the Right Who Will Bleed

    American Thinker ^ | 12 Oct, 2018 | William L. Gensert
    Hillary Clinton said it best: "civility can start again" only when the Democrats regain power. And "the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength." Eric Holder, the Obama mini-me, wasn't far behind when he said, "When they go low, we kick them." He meant not only Republicans but anyone who disagrees with their plans. The Democrats have overtly committed to violence. If we needed further evidence, we need only look at what Antifa did in Portland the other day, where the police faded away, ceding the streets to Antifa, whose members blocked streets and ordered...

    Bump [Philip Bump, WaPo] quotes Ford as telling the Senate Judiciary Committee, “I did see Mark Judge once at the Potomac Village Safeway after the time of the attack, and it would be helpful with anyone’s resources if – to figure out when he worked there if people are wanting more details from me about when the attack occurred.” Now Bump announces his Eureka moment. He can pinpoint Ford’s timeline thanks to Mark Judge himself. Bump quotes from Judge’s 1997 book “Wasted.” Judge wrote, “It was the summer before senior year, and by now, even though I wasn’t drinking every...

    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today called on Senate Republicans and the White House to allow the FBI to follow the facts where they lead and hold off on scheduling a vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court until Congress and the American people learn what the FBI uncovers.  In a speech on the Senate floor, Durbin also called out Republicans who have been calling Dr. Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault against Judge Kavanaugh a “smear,” or a calculated and orchestrated political hit.“I believe Dr. Ford,...

    The Michigan Wolverines, the Florida Gators, the LSU Tigers and the North Dakota Bison (no ‘s’ – see I do learning!) all won yesterday. Hope I didn’t miss anyone’s favorite team. But yes, we are still winning despite repeated fumbles, turnovers, mistakes, rain delays and plain bad calls. It ain’t always pretty but a win’s a win. Sometimes the suspense nearly kills you.So as a potential stress reliever I thought maybe we should do Sunday comics, like everyone did once upon a time in America.You know, back before the advertising industry determined that the country was predominantly minority, and possibly...

    Senator Dianne Feinstein Won’t Set Up Call for Kavanaugh Accuser to Testify It’s now official: This entire situation is a farce that needs to end immediately. Anything less shows the Democrats are profoundly unserious about the allegations being made against Brett Kavanaugh. Over the weekend, Senator Dianne Feinstein made waves by going public with accusations against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. First, she revealed that someone who knew Kavanaugh in high school accused him of sexually assaulting her. Then the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, actually came out publicly. Senate Republicans tried to pull a fast one on her by challenging...

    The New York Law Review ^ | September 13, 2018 | Christine Simmons
    In a rare move for the bar group, the New York City Bar Association is withholding a rating of Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee. The New York City Bar said Thursday that it was unable to determine whether Kavanaugh is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court “because the public record is incomplete on whether he possesses the personal integrity necessary to serve in that role.” The city bar assesses whether a Supreme Court nominee is “highly qualified,” “qualified,” or “not qualified” based on a set of several factors. It’s rare the city bar has withheld...

    It looks like I spoke too soon when I said that the Kavanaugh confirmation process never reached the nauseating lows of the Bork and Thomas hearings. The Washington Times reports that Sen. Dianne Feinstein has asked federal investigators to probe a secret complaint about Kavanaugh. The complaint, reportedly lodged by woman, pertains to an incident that supposedly occurred when Kavanaugh and the women were in high school. The woman passed her complaint to Rep. Anna Eshoo, a California Democrat. She apparently is unwilling to come forward publicly to talk about the alleged incident. Buzzfeed contacted the woman rumored to have...
  • Democrats Force Committee to Postpone Vote on Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Until Next Week

    The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh today to the Supreme Court but the panel ultimate decided to postpone a vote on his nomination until next Thursday. Senate Democrats grandstanded during today's Senate Judiciary Committee — attempting to get the committee to adjourn. Knowing Democrats would attempt to stop further consideration of Kavanaugh's nomination, Republican committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley sought and obtained a vote on a motion to delay the nomination vote for one week. The vote on Kavanaugh's nomination will now take place on SEPTEMBER 20. Republican Senate leaders now anticipate...

    Today, Diane Feinstein, Senator from California, revealed that she referred a secret letter to the FBI, for a thorough investigation. In this letter, an anonymous woman claims that Brent Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriately with her when they were both in high school. This is an extraordinarily disturbing development. And while this revelation -- known all summer and produced after he has been questioned by the full Senate -- is enough to disqualify anyone from any appointed position, there is much more to reveal. Let us all consider the momentous seriousness of this horrific accusation. There is nobody reading this column...

    Fox News ^ | September 13, 2018 | Andrew O'Reilly
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Thursday threw a cryptic curveball at Brett Kavanaugh, insinuating the Supreme Court nominee could be guilty of a crime even as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation. The vague accusation comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee already grilled Kavanaugh and other witnesses and prepares to vote on sending his nomination to the full Senate. A spokesperson for Feinstein declined Fox News’ request to elaborate on the lawmaker’s statement, but there has been much speculation that she is referring to a secret letter that has been the subject of intrigue on...

    The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein of California, said Thursday that she has referred a letter concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to federal authorities. "I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court," Sen. Feinstein said. "That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities." Feinstein's announcement came shortly after the committee set a date to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation. It followed a report Wednesday night...
  • So THIS is what Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s secret Brett Kavanaugh letter was about?

    As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced that she’d turned over to authorities a letter that had some incriminating information about SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh and a woman, possibly reaching back as far as his high school years. Of course, idiots like ThinkProgress’s Ian Millhiser floated the idea that Kavanaugh “may have committed a very serious crime — possibly even a sex crime.” A lot of people starting making #MeToo accusations. With that insinuation floating around all day, The Guardian has a source who claims to know the contents of the letter, and … well, it doesn’t even rise...

    After a week of lies, biased editing of his statements, and one fake Spartacus imitation, supreme court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh was unscathed by the left and looked to be on his way to being confirmed by the entire Senate. But the left demanded that the Democrats do something to prevent Kavanaugh from the inevitable approval. Therefore, Sen. Feinstein (D-CA) who despite being a leftist has problems with the far-left wing of her party tried a last-minute ploy to scuttle the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh that failed so miserably it ended \up making herself look like the court jester. Earlier today...
