    Sep 23 2018 Washington—Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today sent a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley calling for an immediate postponement of the Brett Kavanaugh nomination.“I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh,” Feinstein wrote. “I also ask that the newest allegations of sexual misconduct be referred to the FBI for investigation, and that you join our request for the White House to direct the FBI to investigate the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford as well as these new claims.”Full text of the letter follows:September 23,...
  • The Takedown of Brett Kavanaugh Started with 2012 Fake Planned Parenthood Ad

    Planned Parenthood meticulously stared planning the takedown of Brett Kavanaugh as long as six years ago The takedown of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh didn’t start with Christine Blasey Ford or Senator Dianne Feinstein. It started with a Planned Parenthood photoshopped ad i way back in November of 2012 that depicted Kavanaugh as a “newcomer”. With all the histrionics of Ford now jarring front page headlines, it is not easy too see that she’s only the bit player in the #MeToo assassination of Brett Kavanaugh, a prop moved forward by Planned Parenthood when the time was right.

    WASHINGTON — Over the years, Sen. Dianne Feinstein has come to view herself as a China hand. And now, amid mounting tensions between China and Taiwan, the California Democrat is increasingly asserting herself behind the scenes as a would-be peacemaker. In the process, Feinstein is playing on a rare set of personal relationships that she has nurtured with the three men now at the center of the standoff: the presidents of China, Taiwan and the United States. To each, Feinstein has been dispensing strong and unequivocal advice. "I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese," Feinstein...
  • In a rebuke to Trump, ...Brown signs bans on short-term health plans, Medi-Cal work requirements

    L A Times ^ | Melanie Mason and John Myers
    As a left-leaning state that has embraced the expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, California is unlikely to pursue work requirements for that program. But with the Trump administration backing efforts by a handful of states to impose such requirements, backers of the measure said it was important to enshrine in state law that California would not do the same. Critics have said that work requirements will limit the care of those unable to work, including those with chronic physical ailments, mental illness or substance abuse problems. Four states have already taken action to move toward work mandates,...

    Gavin Newsom, Democratic candidate for governor of California, said on liberal podcast "Pod Save America" that the state government should pay for universal health care for illegal immigrants. In the episode, released Tuesday, the candidate and current lieutenant governor of California touted his involvement in San Francisco having "the only universal health care plan for all undocumented residents in America." "I did universal health care when I was mayor—fully implemented, regardless of pre-existing condition, ability to pay, and regardless of your immigration status. San Francisco is the only universal health care plan for all undocumented residents in America. Very proud...

    Former San Francisco mayor and current Democratic candidate for governor of California Gavin Newsome has pledged to make health care free for all illegal immigrants if he wins in November. “When I was mayor I extended the boundaries of freedom beyond what is provided in any other city in America,” Newsome boasted. “The most well-known of these freedoms is, of course, the freedom to defecate in public without fear of penalty. But an overlooked freedom was using public funds to ensure that every undocumented person residing in the city received the same benefits that citizens are required to purchase under...

    Democrats are so corrupt, and such vile liars and cheaters, they will do anything to win Sen. Dianne Feinstein has much to be ashamed about in her lengthy political career… but first comes to mind is her reprehensible attempt to prevent Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court… a tactic right out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. No doubt, on behalf of the entire radical Democratic National Committee, Feinstein (D-CA) advanced the 36-year old naked allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, brought by Christine Blasey Ford. Yet DiFi sat on Ford’s letter for...

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California again demanded Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing to the Supreme Court be delayed, hours after Christine Blasey Ford agreed to testify about her sexual misconduct accusations against Kavanaugh. “I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh,” Feinstein said in a statement late Sunday evening. Feinstein’s letter was in response to a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, who came forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct decades ago. The California senator’s demand came hours after Ford agreed to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee following...

Dianne Feinstein for her handling of high-school-era sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh... ....snip.. The chairman explained that “the standard procedure for updates to any nominee’s background investigation file is to conduct separate follow-up calls with relevant parties. In this case, that would entail phone calls with at least Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford,” adding, “I asked Senator Feinstein’s office yesterday to join me in scheduling these follow-ups. Thus far, they have refused. But as a necessary step in evaluating these claims, I’ll continue working to set...

    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...

    Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate intelligence committee had a Russian spy working on their staff. Think it would cause a political firestorm? .. Feinstein (D-Calif.) had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for about 20 years, was listed as an “office director” on payroll records and served as her driver when she was in San Francisco, all while reporting to China’s Ministry of State Security through China’s San Francisco Consulate. The reaction of the mainstream media? Barely a peep. ... asked several former senior intelligence and law enforcement...

    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...

    The GOP fears a political backlash from female voters, à la what unfolded in 1991 following hearings with Justice Clarence Thomas and law professor Anita Hill...Feinstein’s comments crystallize the Kavanaugh/Ford narrative. We have two credible people who have risen to the tops of their professions. Yet, no one’s certain about who’s truthful. And, there’s no guarantee we’ll know for sure even after a public hearing. After all, people still wonder about Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill, 27 years later.

    New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has a very interesting view of Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged actions. You might even call this a “Spartacus” moment for the Senator, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. As the world knows, Judge Kavanaugh, 17 years old at the time, is being accused of assaulting a 15-year-old Christine Blasey (now Ford) when both were in high school. Blasey did not report the incident to authorities or apparently anyone else at the time. Thus, no charges were filed much less was Kavanaugh prosecuted. Again, if the charges are true — and there is zero evidence that...

    A report this morning in Axios calls the Kavanaugh- Ford situation "ugly." Republicans are privately worried about the risk unleashed by an explosive allegation of a teenage sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but still hope to push ahead to a final confirmation vote next week.What they're saying: "This is the ugliest situation imaginable," said a source close to Senate Republican leaders. Yes it is ugly. And the person to blame is Dianne Feinstein. A third person alleged by Christine Ford to have been present at the "party"-  now also denies any knowledge of it:  A third high school...

    If North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was searching for the perfect propaganda set piece, something designed to show his people that he's a strong leader pushing inexorably for the long-delayed, long-promised prosperity they deserve, then visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in might be providing him with a unique opportunity. Moon believes that his deep engagement with North Korea is crucial after last year's fears of war, when Washington reacted with fury to a torrent of ever-more-powerful North Korean weapons tests. He argues better ties with North Korea will help South Koreans, and the region, by settling the standoff over...
