    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) All the BetoMania SJWs and snowflakes be all like “Say whaaaaaaattttt?”. – In their debate on the SMU campus Friday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz forced gun-grabbing Democrat challenger Irish Bob O’Rourke into saying, multiple times, that “I fully support the second amendment.” No word if the all-abortion, all-the-time Congressman from El Paso also now claims to somehow be “pro-life”, but it would be an equally honest statement. Hooboy. 11/9 appears to be roughly its box office gross. – Michael Moore’s new Trump-bashing film, stupidly titled “Fahrenheit 11/9” is tanking at the...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said late Friday night that he is giving Christine Blasey Ford more time to decide whether to testify on her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Grassley wrote on Twitter that he had "just granted another extension to Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed [with] the statement she made last week to testify to the [Senate]."
  • Christine Blasey Ford to speak with FBI about death threats

    The Denver Channel ^ | Sept. 21, 2018
    Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, will speak to the FBI on Friday in San Francisco about the death threats against her, a source close to Ford tells CNN. The FBI investigation pertains only to the threats Ford has received since coming public with her allegations last weekend; it is not about the assault accusations against the Supreme Court nominee. Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s by pushing her into a bedroom at a party and attempting to remove her clothes. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegation....

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Event #1 – The newsfakers at the New York Times suddenly decided they needed to change the overriding narrative heading into the weekend, issuing an obvious bit of #fakenews claiming – according to anonymous sources, of course – that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein wanted to wear a wire to his meetings in mid-2017 with President Donald Trump, and also told Robert Mueller that he could recruit cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment as a way to remove Trump from office. Rosenstein blasted back with an outright, unqualified denial of both...
  • CNN Hosts Women’s Panel On Kavanaugh Accusations And It Doesn’t Go As Planned(HAHA)

    CNN isn’t exactly known for presenting a balanced view of things, and the hearings regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are no different. However, a recent attempt at a women’s panel likely meant to further drive opinion of Kavanaugh down, given CNN’s history, did not go the way it was supposed to. Instead of speaking out against Kavanaugh, the CNN panel of women not only defended him but said they have no sympathy for his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. The women first discussed how it’s hard to believe the word of a woman who is talking about something that happened...
  • Blasey Ford’s Sister in Law: ‘She’s Preparing Mentally to Embrace Her Truth

    EXCERPT: BRUCE (voice-over): "Despite the President questioning the timing of these allegations, Blasey Ford’s sister-in-law says coming forward at all is not easy." PETERS: "Part of what I understand is that she felt sort of emotionally derailed for a couple of years. I’m sure she’s preparing mentally to embrace her truth and kind of get past the things that have made her feel like she has to hide it and be silent."

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Annnndddd the race between Cruz and O’Rourke is…still all over the damn place. – A polling group that calls itself Vox Populi came out with a poll in the Texas senate race on Thursday, showing Ted Cruz and Irish Bob O’Rourke tied at 50-50 in the race. In its sample, Vox Populi included 39% Republicans and 36% Democrats, a sample that the group apparently feels is reflective of the Texas voter population. Think about that for a minute. Texas is a state in which no Democrat has won a statewide election in...
  • A Person's Character Can Now Be Determined By What He Did In High School?

    09/21/2018 4:56:46 AM PDT · by Saveourcountry · 47 replies
    Regardless of the guilt or innocence of Kavanaugh, it is ridiculous to think that what someone did in high school, should determine his character after leading an exemplary life for the next 40 years. The average person looking at this is intelligent enough to look at this for what it is, no matter what they claim. To me it is like the "hanging chad" controversy when they were trying to claim that George Bush was elected illegitimately because the people in Florida were too stupid to vote correctly. Both of these tactics are pathetic and defy common sense - but...

    The media’s lies have a price.Politico, the media outlet of choice for flacks and hacks, has declared that Ron DeSantis, the conservative Republican running for Governor of Florida, against the media’s favorite new socialist, suffered his “fifth race-related” controversy.  That fifth “controversy” is about something that somebody who isn’t DeSantis tweeted. The fourth controversy also involved a DeSantis donor. The third controversy falsely smeared the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Restoration Weekend attended by DeSantis (and Medal of Honor winner Clinton Romesha). The second involved a GOP official who also isn’t DeSantis. And the first was that DeSantis had been added...

    New York Times ^ | September 20, 2018 | Ronald J. Krotoszynski Jr.
    Charles Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, seem determined to call a vote next week on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court, even in the face of this week’s sexual assault allegations against him. Senate Republicans assume, correctly, that if they can hold the party line, his installation on the Supreme Court is a sure thing. This is certainly true — even if the Democratic caucus in the Senate holds firm against Mr. Kavanaugh, they simply lack the votes to block him....

Now, the likes of Julianne Moore, America Ferrera, Gabrielle Union, Amber Tamblyn, Eva Longoria, Jamia Wilson, and Marisa Tomei, along with many other women from different situations, all read the same supportive letter to Ford, in a video posted to Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday with the hashtag #DearProfessorFord. It's signed collectively from "your sisters."

    Nikki Haley, President Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, said Thursday that The New York Times knew she had not been involved in the purchase of expensive curtains for her New York residence when it printed a story implying she did. "They knew the facts and they released the story anyway," Haley told Fox News' "The Story." "I hadn't even taken the job when these curtains were picked out," she said. "We told the reporters that these were the facts." The Times issued an editor's note at the top of its piece, which was originally titled "Nikki Haley's View of...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, is reportedly willing to publicly testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee next Thursday. Lawyers for Ford told committee staffers during a call Thursday evening to negotiate details of a potential hearing that she wanted Kavanaugh to testify before her and she does not want to be in the same room as him, according to multiple reports. A source told CNN that Ford's lawyers are also opposed to an outside counsel being used to question her during a hearing, something that was being discussed by...

    The dean of Yale Law School on Thursday responded to reports that a prominent professor at the school had advised students seeking judicial clerkships with Brett Kavanaugh on their physical looks, saying the reported allegations of faculty misconduct are "of enormous concern" and calling on anyone affected to come forward. According to reports in The Guardian, the Huffington Post and Above the Law, Amy Chua, a professor at the law school, would advise students on their physical appearance if they wanted to seek a clerkship for Kavanaugh. Specifically, Chua would help potential applicants to have a "model-like" appearance.

    More American voters now oppose Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination than support it after he was accused of committing sexual assault while he was in high school, with opposition increasing 9 points since last month, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the accusation, which delayed his scheduled confirmation vote before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and which has roiled American politics less than seven weeks before the 2018 midterm elections. In the poll — which was conducted Sunday (when the accusation from Christine Blasey Ford was first made public) through Wednesday — 38...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is a great American and a fine senator. With the notable exception of his destructive obsession over preserving the ethanol subsidies and mandates that benefit his state’s corn farmers but distort all manner of markets and ruin thousands of engines every year, he is right on pretty much every issue and has been a stalwart warrior for truth, justice and what DC Comics used to admit was the American Way. But even this great American has found himself treading on very thin ice in his ongoing cowtowing...

    According to an email sent by Ford's lawyers and obtained by The New York Times, she would appear as long as senators provide “terms that are fair and which ensure her safety." In the letter Thursday, Ford's attorneys wrote that it “is not possible" for Ford to testify on Monday. The lawyers added that "the Committee’s insistence that it occur then is arbitrary in any event.”

    President Trump’s declaration that “I don’t have an attorney general” was not merely the cry of an executive feeling betrayed by a subordinate. It was also a raw expression of vulnerability and anger from a president who associates say increasingly believes he is unprotected — with the Russia investigation steamrolling ahead, anonymous administration officials seeking to undermine him and the specter of impeachment proceedings, should the Democrats retake the House on Nov. 6. In a freewheeling and friendly interview published Wednesday, Trump savaged Attorney General Jeff Sessions, mocking the nation’s top law enforcement official for coming off as “mixed up...
