    Identity Politics: Democrats, and especially Leftist feminist Democratic women, hate men, and especially white men, whom they blame for all problems not just in the United States but the world over. And another one of them, Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, made that perfectly clear again on Tuesday in her defense of Christine Blasey Ford, the Leftie activist professor who is accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually harassing her 36 years ago at some party, somewhere, at some point. In lambasting critics of Ford’s accusation, which is chock full of holes, is being refuted by scores of people who have...
  • The Sliming of Kavanaugh: Alinsky Would Be Proud

    09/19/2018 11:17:33 AM PDT · by Ed Jenner · 2 replies
    This is reminiscent of last-minute allegations of sexual harassment against Clarence Thomas, who decried the “high-tech lynching” the left attempted against him at that time to block him from sitting on the high court. These are the same people who for more than 20 years gave Bill Clinton a pass. The left began to take the principles of that Machiavellian Marxist community organizer from Chicago, Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) and apply them to virtually every position of political power. Alinsky studied organized crime and was in effect tutored by Al Capone’s successor, Frank Nitti – the boss of Chicago’s chief crime...

    FULL TITLE: Gohmert: Dems Fighting Declassification ‘to Protect the Guilty;’ Rosenstein Has ‘Strong Motive’ to Suppress The reason Democrats and the Justice Department (DOJ) are resisting President Donald Trump’s order to declassify certain Russia investigation documents is that they want to “protect the guilty,” Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) said Tuesday. “The reason for the delay has been to protect the guilty,” Gohmert told Fox Business Host Lou Dobbs. “The names are being redacted, things are being redacted to protect the guilty. So, that’s the reason that they’re being redacted. That’s the reason they’re being slow to uncover these things.” History...

"If you want the FBI to go back that far @HillaryClinton @MSNBC to investigate Ford's allegations .... let's investigate my RAPE allegations against Bill Clinton, too. Seems only fair," Broaddrick tweeted on Sept. 18.

    CBS is in talks for the rights to produce a miniseries based on "A Higher Loyalty," former FBI Director James Comey's memoir of his time in the FBI, including his service under President Trump. CNBC reported Tuesday that the network is close to a deal for the series's rights after reportedly winning an auction for the story earlier this month. CBS Television Studios declined to comment to CNBC, but a source close to the negotiations described the auction process as "a highly competitive situation," according to the report. The former FBI director's memoir was released in April amid fanfare in...

    "Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said "it's getting close" to the time President Trump's intelligence agency leaders stand up to their boss about his declassification order and quit if he doesn't back down." ""Sooner or later, we will come to a point for what the president demands is so egregious ... that the right thing for them to do, to signal the alarm, to send up the flare is to say if you want this done, Mr. President, it will have to be done by somebody else," Hayden said Wednesday morning on CNN."

    A North Side priest who says he “can’t sit well” with Cardinal Blase Cupich burned a gay-friendly flag outside his Avondale church last week — against the wishes of the cardinal he claims is trying to minimize the clergy sex-abuse crisis. Rev. Paul Kalchik says the banner, featuring a cross superimposed over a rainbow, had been featured prominently in the sanctuary at Resurrection Catholic Church but had been taken down and was forgotten in storage at the parish at 3043 N. Francisco for more than a decade. Kalchik led seven parishioners in a prayer of exorcism Friday, and the flag...

    It sounds like the opening for another stoner movie, maybe “Harold and Kumar Go to Heaven.” Giant bundles of marijuana, apparently containing individually wrapped five-kilo bricks, have been washing up on the shores of Florida since the approach of Hurricane Florence last week, possibly from a boat that was either capsized by the storm or an airplane drop that went awry.

    Nearly half in top 5 U.S. cities don’t speak English at home, record 67 million Nearly half of the residents in the nation’s five biggest cities do not speak English at home, choosing instead their native language, according to the latest Census Bureau data that details the impact of a decade of soft immigration policies. Overall, a record 67 million do not speak English at home, said the bureau. That is nearly double in 27 years. In its just-released analysis of the Census data, the Center for Immigration Studies said, “As a share of the population, 21.8 percent of U.S....

    Democrat Andrew Gillum holds a 6-point lead over Ron DeSantis (R) in the hotly contested gubernatorial campaign in Florida, according to a new poll. The Reuters–Ipsos–UVA Center for Politics poll found that 50 percent of voters surveyed support Gillum, compared to 44 percent who back DeSantis. The remaining percentage of voters said they support a different candidate or did not indicate support for any candidate. Gillum and DeSantis are running to replace outgoing Gov. Rick Scott (R), who is term-limited and running for Senate. The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election handicapper, rates the gubernatorial contest a “toss-up.” The Reuters...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown ramped up his criticism of President Trump in an interview that aired Monday – calling the president a “saboteur” in the fight to combat climate change and saying that “something’s got to happen to this guy.” Speaking to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell at an environmental summit in San Francisco last week, Brown tore into Trump for the president’s controversial tweets about the death toll in Puerto Rico from last year’s Hurricane Maria and urged voters to vote for Democrats in November’s midterm elections in an effort to thwart Trump’s agenda. “We never had a president who was...

    After the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh concluded last week, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., revealed that for six weeks she’d hidden a claim he’d sexually assaulted someone. Christine Blasey Ford then told the Washington Post that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. Although she said she doesn’t remember where or when the alleged event occurred, she said she believes it may have been in the summer of 1982 and that Kavanaugh’s friend Mark Judge was present for the assault. Notes from a couples therapy session in 2012 show that she spoke of...

    The foundation behind the planned Obama Presidential Center in Chicago has a tentative agreement with the city to pay just $10 to use 19.3 acres of city park space for 99 years, according to a report. The accord is described in legislation that Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration will send to the City Council on Thursday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. If approved, the proposals will bring the estimated $350 million project closer to reality. Per the agreement, the city will own the buildings and grounds, while the Obama Foundation will be responsible for the center’s upkeep and management, Crain’s Chicago Business...
