  • Senator Mazie Hirono Wants Men to ‘Just Shut Up’

    09/18/2018 6:00:17 PM PDT · by RevelationDavid · 18 replies
    JUST SHUT UP!!! As the attacks on the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford continue, and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly denies the allegations made against him, lawmakers are speaking out. Senator Mazie Hirono, for one, did not mince words. She held men — especially those in government — responsible for the harrowing experience of coming forward with allegations against a powerful man. “Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country,” she said at a press conference. “I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step...
  • TV Guide on Tom Arnold: ‘Bob Woodward and I’ ‘Are Basically the Same Guy’

    Newsbusters ^ | September 18, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    Tom Arnold's The Hunt for the Trump Tapes premieres on Tuesday but unfortunately there seems to be nefarious forces out there trying to hinder his quixotic quest. According to Arnold, one of those trying to stop his hunt is the former producer of The Apprentice, Mark Burnett, whom Arnold is accusing of choking him at a pre-Emmys party in Los Angeles on Sunday night. In another interview, TV Guide summerized the comedian: "Bob Woodward and I" "are basically the same guy."  A barely coherent red-faced Arnold describes the confrontation to a flock of reporters who might be wondering if the former...
  • VANITY - An Alternative Narrative

    Self | 9-18-18 | Gtwizard
    I propose a different narrative ... Kavanaugh might have been at a party where, by her own admission, Christine Blasey Ford was so stumbling drunk she doesn't even remember the date, the location, or how she got home. While at this party she stumbled into a sober and gentlemanly Brett Kavanaugh who, recognizing her vulnerability, guided her away from the party and toward a quiet bed room where she could sleep it off. On the way, she puked, leaving a steaming pile of vomit (sort of like this accusation) on the carpet and dribbling bile from her mouth. Brett, stopped...
  • Jeff Flake: If Kavanaugh Accuser Fails To Show Up, I'll Support Move To Push Nomination Forward

    09/18/2018 5:49:01 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 23 replies ^ | Sept 18
    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, sits on the Judiciary Committee and had previously said the committee should hold off on voting until they hear from the accuser. However, Flake said Tuesday that if Ford fails to appear at the hearing scheduled for Monday, he would support his party's push to move forward on a vote on Kavanaugh. "I think we'll have to move to the markup," he told CNN. Flake said he's hopeful Ford will accept the committee's invitation and speak at the hearing. "I hope she does. I think she needs to be heard," he said.

    Google's new pollution police, coming to patrol near you By Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times - Tuesday, September 18, 2018 ANALYSIS/OPINION: Google’s Street View cars — the global cruisers that collect data for the making of more accurate maps — now have a new mission, and it’s one that’s sure to make the Green groups cheer. The tech company’s bolstering its fleet with updated pollution-recording devices from the San Francisco company, Aclima, to patrol streets in Europe and in the United States, and monitor fluctuating levels of air quality. And all those findings will no doubt soon find...

    Jim Cramer says that the latest round of tariffs on China-made goods sends the message that the “game is over.” Cramer, who is the most popular personality on CNBC, defended the latest round of tariffs the Trump administration announced Monday night. “I think the president is saying, ‘Hey, listen guys, you are not going to make as much money in China as you used to. That game is over because we have to win the trade war,'” Cramer said Tuesday. Cramer also said that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was correct that the China tariffs would not hurt U.S. consumers. “Wilbur...

    Please accept this post as an observation: explaining, not complaining. Hopefully, Mark Levin's absence from The Mark Levin Show since abruptly departing the third hour on Thursday, 9/13 with Dan Bongino finishing the show are not for his own or his parents' health reasons. But after going on six days with no explanation on his web site, Twitter, Facebook or elsewhere, his fans may start to wonder what is going on. Ben Ferguson hosted the Friday 9/14 show and Dan Bongino again hosted the Monday 9/17 show and both said Mark would be back by Tuesday 9/18, but instead the...
  • There are new signs North Korea is serious about denuclearization

    Great Power War ^ | 9/18/18 | USA Features
    The biggest hurdle to complete denuclearization is related to security guarantees. Kim has always viewed a nuclear capability as a means of ensuring that he will retain power and that his family’s ruling dynasty would continue in perpetuity. The last thing he would want is to give up the only means of retaining power if he wasn’t absolutely certain that neither South Korea nor the U.S. wouldn’t take advantage of his denuclearization to invade and change the ruling North Korean regime. Another obstacle could also become an asset: China. In past years, Beijing has used North Korean belligerence and unpredictability...

Trump says that he's considering the idea and that Poland has offered more than $2 billion to the U.S. to pay for such an effort. The comments came at a joint White House press conference by the leaders Tuesday. Trump says they agreed to bolster defense, energy and commercial ties. And he...

    Police say a career criminal ripped off a downtown Seattle Target store three times in four days, even after being arrested and released for his crimes. Surveillance video from August allegedly shows 41-year-old Jason Lewis confronting sales workers on the electronics floor of the department store. At one point, he head bumps an employee. The terrorized employees left him alone after that. Lewis then destroyed display cases and grabbed as many electronics as he could over 15 minutes. “He then begins to push over and drags store displays and he uses one as a weapon, swinging it like a sled...

    President Trump's name appears on dozens of buildings worldwide, but if the leader of Poland has his way, properties like Trump Tower and Trump International Hotel may soon be joined by a conspicuously named military installation: Fort Trump. Speaking with Trump and reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday, Poland's president, Andrzej Duda, told Trump that he'd like the U.S. to create a permanent military base with that name in Poland -- and that Poland would pay more than $2 billion for the project. Duda emphasized that his country was "willing to make a very major contribution to the United...
