    The chief of police in Montgomery County, Md., says his officers are not looking into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, appearing to contradict a local news report that "investigators" were looking at a potential second high school misconduct allegation. "I have spoken with my chief of detectives, and neither of us have any knowledge of anyone coming forward to us to report any allegations involving Judge Kavanaugh," police Chief J. Thomas Manger told the Washington Examiner in an email. The Montgomery County Sentinel reported Monday that "Montgomery County investigators" were "looking at" a " potential second...

  • Top Democrat cites Kavanaugh's 'outcome-driven' legal philosophy as reason to deny him due process

    Sen. Mazie Hirono on Sunday suggested that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's "outcome-driven" conservative judicial philosophy directly undermines the credibility of his denials that he sexually assaulted California professor Christine Ford at a house party more than three decades ago. Speaking to CNN's "State of the Union," Hirono, D-Hawaii, called for an independent FBI investigation of Ford's claims, before explaining why the presumption of innocence and due process should not apply to Kavanaugh's case. "I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases," Hirono told host Jake...

    American politics have been roiled in the last 48 hours by a last-minute attempt by Democrats and political operatives to sink Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the United States Supreme Court. After all public and private hearings were over, Sen. Feinstein revealed a letter she had in her possession since July of this year, accusing Judge Kavanaugh of some teenage, high-school groping of a girl at a party. This girl, now a woman in her 50’s, has come forward and is willing to testify before the confirmation vote. Any reasonable person, not motivated by sheer partisan politics, might wonder about the...

  • Kavanaugh to Give Senate Calendars From 1982 to Back Up Denial

    The New York Times ^ | September 23, 2018 | Pete Baker
    WASHINGTON — Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh has calendars from the summer of 1982 that he plans to hand over to the Senate Judiciary Committee that do not show a party consistent with the description of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, according to someone working for his confirmation. The calendars do not disprove Dr. Blasey’s allegations, Judge Kavanaugh’s team acknowledged. He could have attended a party that he did not list. But his team will argue to the senators that the calendars provide no corroboration for her account of a small gathering at a house where he allegedly pinned her to...

    It took the French Revolution ten years (1789-1799) to go from an idealistic fight for freedom to the one-man rule of Napoleon, but these are fast-moving times and the #MeToo movement has gone from the necessary correction of monsters like Harvey Weinstein to an all-out assault on the rule of law and hatred of the entire male sex in about eighteen months. (Well, it was men who came up with the Magna Carta.) Think I'm exaggerating? How about the nauseating misandry of the senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono? Not only, in the eyes of Ms. Hirono, is Brett Kavanaugh automatically...

    DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. -- Two Maryland police officers were shot while serving a drug-related search warrant at the wrong apartment late Wednesday, according to law enforcement officials. The resident shot the officers as soon as they opened the door, thinking they were home invaders, authorities said. No criminal charges will be filed against the man, Prince George's County Police Chief Hank Stawinski said Thursday. Stawinski apologized for the error and said he has halted executing search warrants until the department reviews its procedures, news outlets reported. "The individual that we are targeting does not live at that address ... a...

    Workers say they endured horrifying moments of wild gunfire and terror as a woman working a temporary job at a drugstore warehouse in Maryland fired on colleagues with a handgun, killing three people before fatally shooting herself, according to authorities. CBS News' Mola Lenghi reports that witnesses say the shooting followed an argument Thursday morning between the suspect and another employee. The shooting sent survivors screaming and running in all directions from the Rite Aid distribution center in northeastern Maryland. Others nearby helped the wounded, and one person tied blood-soaked jeans around an injured man's leg trying to stanch the...

    If Senate Democrats sweep into power in November, they will likely probe the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a Democrat in the chamber. "I am confident of that, and I think we'll also be investigating why the FBI stood down its background investigation when this came up in this particular background," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Thursday during a interview with CNN. He also acknowledged that such an effort would happen even if Kavanaugh has already been appointed to the court.

    Baltimore Sun ^ | September 20, 2018 | Lillian Reed and Ian Duncan
    Authorities in Harford County were still trying to determine late Thursday why Snochia Moseley opened fire at the Rite Aid warehouse where she had taken a temporary job, killing three employees and fatally wounding herself. Authorities have not identified the victims. [Snip] Authorities and court records identified Moseley as female, as did a Facebook profile in her name. But in Facebook messages Coley shared with The Baltimore Sun, Moseley described herself as transgender, although it was not clear whether Moseley preferred to be addressed using masculine or feminine pronouns. In messages that the friend said were sent in December 2016,...

    Brett Kavanaugh is a casualty of an anything-goes political resistance. Consider the spectacle: Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, the embodiment of a modern rule of law, is being decided in the Senate by the medieval practice of trial by ordeal, such as surviving immersion in fire or ice. Trial by ordeal was outlawed by the Lateran Council in 1215. Or worse, the standards of the mob in the Roman Colosseum, turning thumbs up or down on the combatants. Though unlike the Senate Democrats, the Roman mob at least had an open mind. Incidentally, the standard trope that...
  • Want to help prevent rape? Withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination.

    Want to help prevent rape? Withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination . If we care about all the sexual assaults that haven’t yet occurred, we must treat attempted rape as disqualifying for a Supreme Court justice. By Sandra Newman Sandra Newman has written widely about sexual assault and is the author of several books, including the forthcoming novel The Heavens. September 20 at 3:19 AM When Christine Blasey Ford came forward with allegations that Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a party when he was 17, it was no surprise that Republicans were quick to deny it ever happened. What was surprising,...

    "Multiple victims" were being treated after a "horrific shooting" in Aberdeen, Maryland on Thursday, authorities said. The Harford County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the shooting near Spesutia and Perryman Roads in Aberdeen. The first shots were reported just after 9 a.m. There was no immediate word on any suspects and it wasn't known if officials had taken anyone into custody in connection with the incident. "We are closely monitoring the horrific shooting in Aberdeen. Our prayers are with all those impacted, including our first responders. The State stands ready to offer any support," Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said. The conditions of...

    Since high school keg parties at the elite prep schools attended by Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey are now a matter of consuming interest to the Democrat-media complex, it is perhaps telling that the high school yearbooks of Holton-Arms, the school attended by Blasey, have been scrubbed from the web. The blog Cult of the First Amendment says: Those who are interested can examine the many pages that are claimed to come from the yearbooks and make their own judgments. I am not familiar with the blog or blogger, but the veracity of the pages is certainly subject to investigation...

    he Holton girls school promoted binge drinking and promiscuity. The yearbook clearly portrays the young girls as the sexual predators of younger men. The Cult of the First Amendment posted an extensive analysis of Christine Blasey’s elitist high school where faculty promoted an environment of binge drinking, promiscuity and elitism. The yearbook was recently scrubbed after Christine Blasey Ford made headlines over her allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. "On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them. Why did I know...
