    On Friday morning, Senator Susan Collins of Maine said that she would declare later that afternoon whether she would confirm or oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. For the women who opposed Judge Kavanaugh, many of whom had traveled to Washington from all over the country, her decision was their last hope. By 2:30 p.m., half an hour before she was due to announce her decision, Collins’s office on the fourth floor of the Dirksen Senate building was filled with protesters, most of them women, and members of the press. The crowd was overflowing into the...

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m exhausted from the month-long circus. Police look on as protesters are arrested in the Hart Senate Office Building during a rally against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill on Oct. 4 So I’m laying low today in order to catch up on routine chores that have fallen by the wayside while the Circus was in town. Besides, today is the national holiday-previously-known-as-Columbus-Day but now known as Indigenous Peoples Day by Coastal Elites.Honestly, is there anything the Left can’t/won’t destroy?Anyway, tomorrow we’ll be discussing important issues again but till...

    Talk about desperate. On Monday, the New York Times published a shocking report that says Judge Brett Kavanaugh was once questioned by police after he allegedly threw ice at someone in a bar. According to the Times: The incident, which occurred in September 1985 during Mr. Kavanaugh’s junior year, resulted in Mr. Kavanaugh and four other men being questioned by the New Haven Police Department. Mr. Kavanaugh was not arrested, but the police report stated that a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him “for some unknown reason.” A witness to the fight said that Chris Dudley,...

    "Evil is a make-believe concept we've invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans." A progressive young American couple was killed in an Islamic State-claimed terrorist attack last month while on a bike trip around the world. Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, who were both in their late 20s, quit their jobs in 2017 to embark on a trip around the world. Austin, a vegan, and Geoghegan, a vegetarian, decided that they're were wasting their lives working. "I’ve grown tired of spending the best hours of my day in front of a glowing rectangle, of coloring the best years...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that he wouldn't be "intimidated" by protesters who have confronted him in public several times this year. "I'm not sure what about my career has led them to believe that I am easily intimidated. ... This is all about intimidation. It's not about persuasion but about intimidation. And I assure you I will not be intimidated by these groups of socialists who apparently prefer open borders," McConnell told reporters in Kentucky. McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, were confronted as they left an event near Washington last month by protesters over...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he'll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade. Gov. Cuomo has been calling on lawmakers to increase protections in New York. "We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there," Gov. Cuomo said. During the 2016 election, Donald Trump regularly stated that he would only appoint judges to the Supreme Court that would overturn the ruling.

    Sen. Kamala Harris’ office bluntly rejected a courtesy call from the White House in the run-up to Monday’s Supreme Court nomination, according to a senior White House aide. According to the account, the Democratic California senator’s office told White House Counsel Don McGahn, “We want nothing to do with you.” The senator's office has since denied saying that. Asked about the claim, her office confirmed that the senator's chief of staff, though not Harris, spoke with a McGahn aide -- but denied the quote. But according to the White House, the brusque response came as McGahn reached out to each...

    Six LGBT activists have found a way to fly the Pride flag in Russia - by wearing football shirts in the rainbow colours. The country has had a law banning the spreading of "gay propaganda" among under-18s since 2013. The Pride flag is a symbol celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, but displaying it in Russia can get you arrested. The group got together and wore their nations' football tops around Moscow. It meant the shirts of Spain, the Netherlands (who weren't in the World Cup), Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Colombia collectively made the colours of the stripes of...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is the latest Republican to learn going to a restaurant in this political climate is dicey. McConnell was taunted by protesters Saturday as he left the eatery in Louisville, Kentucky ... confronted over immigration policies that include separate children from their parents. As McConnell strolled out with Kentucky House Majority Leader Jonathan Shell, protesters screamed, "Where are the babies, Mitch?" and "Abolish ICE," and "No justice, no peace." Shell called the protesters "a small group of extremists" and said their comments were "out of the Maxine Waters playbook."

    An estimated 60,000 people gathered in and around Daley Plaza at 11 AM this morning, including a marching band, voter registrars, Captain America, and a family who might have been Aztec warriors. The heat index was above 100 degrees, but thousands stayed through the hour-long rally and the march afterward. (The column of marchers was so long that as some were returning to the plaza at the end of the 15-block route, others were still just leaving.) There was a handful of speakers, though the crowd was so vast that their voices didn't carry very far. One young woman spoke...

    "This president is the subject of a criminal investigation," Booker said. "Here you have a president that's making a whole lot of loyalty tests and other things from people." While Special Counsel Robert Mueller told Trump's lawyers in March he is under investigation, Trump is not considered a "criminal target," . . . Booker testified as a character witness on behalf of his colleague Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), when he was on trial for public corruption for accepting bribes from his long-time friend Dr. Salomon Melgen, in exchange for political favors.

    As Kristinn Taylor of the Gateway Pundit reported, a protester ‘got very close’ as he threw Russian flags at President Donald Trump as he walked though the Capitol Building with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) on his way to a lunch meeting on tax legislation with Republican senators. CBS News posted a video clip of Trump and McConnell walking as the flags were thrown. A voice can be heard yelling about “treason”. Security at the scene was apparently quite lax as the protester had clear aim at the President and it was several seconds before any apparent reaction took...

It is unclear at this time whether the shooter was killed or is currently in police custody. In the wake of the shooting, lots of people on the Internet lost their minds. Several progressives even went out of their way to suggest the victims deserved to get shot because they have the wrong views on gun control, or Obamacare, or Donald Trump. Here are some of the most insane reactions to...

After comedian and CNN pundit Kathy Griffin received huge backlash for sharing a photo of her holding a bloody, severed head of Donald Trump, One America News host Liz Wheeler posted about the impact the photo had on Barron: “TMZ reports: Barron Trump was watching TV & saw @kathygriffin holding the severed head. He thought it was his dad. My heart is broken," wrote Wheeler. O’Donnell, however, was not sympathetic towards the chilling thought of an eleven-year-old boy seeing his father decapitated on TV.
