    One could well understand if President Trump’s fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was a tad confused. [snip] Sullivan’s harsh attack on Flynn was a surprise. It left Flynn in the position of someone being hit by a train – when the train was miles off its track. [snip] Sullivan also asked prosecutor Brad Van Grack: "Hypothetically could he have been charged with treason?" [snip] Significantly, none of what Flynn and Kislyak discussed had anything to do with alleged Russian collusion. [snip] Yet the judge cited Flynn’s lobbying on behalf of Turkey as an aggravating factor he was considering in...
  • Trump judicial nominees stall on Hill, as Flake digs in over Mueller plan

    Confirmation proceedings for President Trump’s judicial nominees have partially stalled on Capitol Hill, as outgoing Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake is standing firm in his vow to oppose all Trump nominations until the Senate votes on legislation to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Flake, a frequent Trump critic who opted against running for re-election this year, followed through on his threat Wednesday afternoon and joined Democrats in opposing a bid to advance Thomas Farr’s nomination to serve on the federal bench for the Eastern District of North Carolina. Vice President Pence was then forced to break a tie on...

    Is it any wonder that Lance Mason believed that he could get away with killing his wife? On the way back from a funeral, Judge Lance Mason beat his wife so badly that he broke her orbital socket.  A woman who called 911 had described a horrifying scene of “fists flying” inside the car. Their two children, ages 4 and 6, were in the SUV when their father assaulted their mother, choked her and bit her on the ear and the cheek. According to Aisha, Judge Mason "struck me in the face, yanked my hair, slammed my head into the...

    Meanwhile, it’s a dog-eat-dog world of which braying donkeys approve Proving the old adage that “The Law’s an ass”, a federal judge on Friday granted CNN’s request for a court order that would temporarily reinstate ‘correspondent’ Jim Acosta’s White House press pass. In this case, the law’s not only an # but donkeys are riding all over it because it, in effect, gives a bullhorn back to a badgering blowhard.

    A federal judge on Friday granted CNN's request for a court order that would temporarily reinstate network correspondent Jim Acosta's White House press pass, which had been suspended indefinitely in the wake of a fiery exchange between the reporter and President Donald Trump a week earlier. The ruling from Judge Timothy Kelly, who was appointed by Trump, was a first victory for CNN in the ongoing case. CNN's lawsuit, announced Tuesday, argues that Acosta's constitutional rights had been violated by Trump and five other members of his administration, as well as by the U.S. Secret Service. The other defendants include...

    The Kavanaugh confirmation circus is over and the fighters have gone back to their corners, but not before drawing massive amounts of blood. The Kavanaughs were injured, but they now have Secret Service protection and secure employment for life. There's someone else, though, who was beaten and bloodied and left for dead on the side of the road. Mark Judge, the other man accused by Christine Blasey Ford, has lost his job and his home. He is raising money on a GoFundMe alternative site called Funding Morality and has received $48,549 to date. Judge is a cancer survivor and Catholic...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/12/2018 | Thomas Lifson
    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is about to become about ten percent less crazy.  President Trump has nominated three new judges for the 29-seat circuit court, over the objections of the two senators representing their home state of California.  Until Trump discarded the practice, home state senators were allowed to veto judicial nominations for courts in their states, a custom known as the "blue slip."  That seems quaint these days, a relic of a bygone era in which actual qualifications, not ideology, were the issue in Senate confirmation votes that, anyway, required a filibuster-proof 60 votes.As a result, President Trump and...

    In the off-chance Christine Blasey Ford actually shows up and testifies – I give it under 50% – the wussy GOP senators on the Judiciary Committee are going to treat her with kid gloves, which is awful. No one making an accusation with such potentially catastrophic consequences for the accused (here, the accused may properly be called “the victim”) should escape harsh, penetrating cross-examination. This is particularly true when the Jenga tower that is her lunchmeat story is teetering on the edge of collapse. But they will instruct their questioners to use kid gloves nonetheless, because they are terrified of...

    You don’t know me, though I’ve met both Collins and Murkowski when I worked for the late Montana Senator Conrad Burns. But my life, and the lives of everyone in this country, are hanging on what you do next in the confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh. I call it a battle rather than a process because it is a battle, a fight, even a war. I know each of you think you’re doing your best to stave off that war, but you’re only making it more likely. Senator Flake, you were confronted on national television by two activists, both claiming...

    There is this thing called due process, where someone accused of something has a right to defend himself, except liberals don’t like it very much. They sometimes play lip service to it, but only when it has to do with covering for the criminals they consider victims of society. You Normals are “society,” by the way. But regardless, when it is politically useful to let super-convenient accusers trash people from a distance by feeding talking points to eager media allies, forget due process. Allowing someone to effectively challenge fake charges gets in the way of the liberal elite’s ability to...

    September 28, 2018 Bahia Beach, Puerto Rico In 279 BC, the vast army of King Pyrrhus of Epirus was met by Roman forces at the Battle of Asculum in southern Italy, in what would be one of the costliest military engagements of ancient history. Pyrrhus fancied himself the second coming of Alexander the Great and believed that he was a descendant of Achilles. Many of his peers and contemporaries believed Pyrrhus to be the greatest military commander of all time. His exploits were legendary. And when he set sail for Italy in 280 BC, the Romans did not underestimate him....

    The rubber is about to meet the road for Senate Republicans. They have a simple choice: they can vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, thereby ending the baseless and unsubstantiated Democrat- and media-fueled smear campaign against him, or they can kiss House and Senate majorities goodbye for the next decade, if not longer.In case the election of one Donald J. Trump was not enough to compel the D.C. Republican establishment swamp creatures to wipe the muck from their eyes and see what’s happening with their own constituents, Republican voters have had enough of feckless do-nothings whose careers...

If Grassley waits long enough, the Democrats will come up with the woman claiming to be Kavanaugh’s secret Russian wife. — he’s a bigamist, too, don’t you know — and Trump paid Kavanaugh’s second wife to hire a bunch of prostitutes to urinate on the bed Obama slept in while in Moscow. If Grassley doesn’t get a handle on this and just...

    Two observations about the sexual misconduct allegations / smear campaign against the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh: 1. The evidentiary standards being pushed by Democrats and the MSM are lower than those used in the Salem witch trials. 2. Rapists, groomers, pimps and similar sexual deviants are never pro-life. These types always rely on easy access to abortion in order to cover up their crimes.

    The judge in the Bill Cosby sexual assault case on Thursday denied a prosecution request to allow testimony at his sentencing hearing from women who say he molested them but whose accusations never led to criminal charges. It was not immediately clear whether the judge intended to block all testimony from women who had given their accounts at Mr. Cosby’s trial in April because he asked for clarification on whether prosecutors intended to bring the women forward as part of the sentencing hearing. He asked them to clarify that point within 24 hours. Prosecutors in Pennsylvania had asked that an...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—As the Senate holds hearings to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court justice, Democrats have come up with a new tactic — the only tactic left to them since Harry Reid “nuked” the filibuster: impotently shaking their fists in disapproval. “We won’t take this lying down,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed. “Nor will we take it while standing. We plan to take it while sitting and shaking our fists. Let the last thing Kavanaugh sees before his lifetime appointment be a number of fists bobbing about, expressing a threat no one here is capable of...

    Allison Jones Rushing has a sterling academic record, high-profile clerkship experience, and doubtless a solid vote for protecting the rights of fetuses as, based on her résumé, she still is one. Rushing graduated from Wake Forest in 2004 and Duke Law School in 2007. After three clerkships — with then-Judge Gorsuch, Judge Sentelle, and Justice Thomas — she joined the ranks of Williams & Connolly where she’s practiced actual law for a mere seven years. Doesn’t anyone think we’re, forgive me, “rushing” this? She could go to her 10-year Gorsuch clerkship anniversary already a federal appellate judge herself. Before this...

    Vote Howard Friedman for Orange-Osceola circuit court judge. Please! Do not allow incompetent, boorish Jeff Ashton become a judge of the good people of central Florida! Ashton was instrumental as Casey Anthony's prosecuting attorney in letting the murderer of her own child get off Scot free!! Howard is a great friend and a fantastic judge and attorney. He has been a magistrate for over 14 years hearing domestic type cases so he is very experienced at discerning lies. HOWARD FRIEDMAN - YES! Jeff Ashton - NO! NO! NO!

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., joked about how somebody saving a drowning President Trump would be a "catastrophe" at the start of an event in Sunshine, Fla., on Sunday. In a video reported by the Daily Caller, Hastings said he first learned of the joke from Ari Silver, whose father is former Florida state legislator and rabbi Barry Silver. “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?” Hastings said, retelling the joke. "A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim,” Hastings said. A "catastrophe," he added, "is anybody saves his ass.'” Cheers...
