    Melissa Klein, co-owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, in Gresham, talks with a customer on Feb. 5, 2013. (Everton Bailey Jr./staff) The owners of a shuttered Gresham bakery fined by the state after refusing to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple want to take their case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Lawyers for Aaron and Melissa Klein, the former owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa, filed a petition Monday asking the high court to overturn the state's order to pay $135,000 in emotional damages to the couple they turned away.

    In recent months Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, and many other prominent Democrats have advocated for violence. They threw open Pandora’s box labeled MOB, and their calls to action are bearing fruit. They happily unleashed the whirlwind, yet refuse to accept responsibility for the destruction they are causing. Ricin laced letters are sent to Senators homes. Shrieking mobs attack innocent drivers and passersby in Portland and elsewhere. GOP candidates and staffers have been physically attacked, leaving one with a concussion. Shrieking mob harpies turned the Senate building into a zone of insanity with their chants, screams, and...

    You could see the protesters gathering outside the Hex on Brett Kavanaugh from the edge of an industrial block in Brooklyn. They could be heard from even farther down the street. The mainly Christian-identifying crowd condemned the group of antifa witches who made headlines this week for planning to conjure misfortune onto the new supreme court justice. The hex was hosted by Catland, an occult shop that sells spiritual literature, healing crystals, tarot cards, burnable incense, and other occult accoutrements.

    Kevin Daley | Supreme Court Reporter 2957 Justice Neil Gorsuch has made pleas for good faith and civility a watch word of his early tenure on the U.S. Supreme Court, regularly decrying the decline of respect in civic life. Gorsuch’s latest entreaty came Wednesday when he made a brief opening statement at a Supreme Court Historical Society lecture on former Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes. According to SCOTUSblog, Gorsuch lamented that decency, good will, and kindness are “under assault in our society right now, and in our profession,” and feared that appeals to dignity have become blasé. He went on...

    OANN ^ | 21 Oct 2018
    Democrat New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is now being accused of sexual assault by a man. On Saturday, an anonymous man released a detailed four page document on Twitter, claiming the incident happened when Booker visited his workplace back in 2014. He claims Booker followed him to the bathroom, touched him inappropriately, and approached him for oral sex. The man says he reached out to two lawyers earlier this month disclosing his name, date, location, corroborating evidence, and two possible hearsay witnesses. The reported victim also said watching Booker’s defense of alleged sexual assault victims was “laughably ironic, jarringly cringe-worthy,...

    Emily Heil reported on October 18 that Georgetown Prep was hiring a director of alumni relations, and wrote that the school posted the advertisement for the position this week. The article further suggested that the school was adding the position because of the news surrounding the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Georgetown Prep alum, to the Supreme Court. However, Heil was informed prior to publication of her article by a spokesperson for Georgetown Prep that the position was posted back in July. Heil specifically asked spokesperson Patrick Coyle when the alumni director job was posted, according to a copy...

    The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Friday it had filed a complaint against lawyers for Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, arguing that they hadn’t kept their client properly informed about her options for testifying. The complaint was filed “to the Board of Professional Responsibility of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals of Debra S. Katz, Lisa J. Banks, and Michael R. Bromwich for violating the rules of professional responsibility in their representation of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee during the hearings on the nomination of the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh,” the group...

    The Kavanaugh confirmation circus is over and the fighters have gone back to their corners, but not before drawing massive amounts of blood. The Kavanaughs were injured, but they now have Secret Service protection and secure employment for life. There's someone else, though, who was beaten and bloodied and left for dead on the side of the road. Mark Judge, the other man accused by Christine Blasey Ford, has lost his job and his home. He is raising money on a GoFundMe alternative site called Funding Morality and has received $48,549 to date. Judge is a cancer survivor and Catholic...

    Could Republicans do the unthinkable on November 6th and keep a majority in the House? Politico’s Rachel Bade calls it “unlikely,” but not impossible. Bade hears from Republicans and “even a few Democrats” that the political winds have shifted enough this month that it might result in a slight GOP majority once all the votes have been counted. ....Just about every poll predicts it won’t happen: Suburban voters are too fed up with Donald Trump, and Democrats too awash in cash, for Nancy Pelosi’s party not to seize the House on Nov. 6. And yet House Republicans — and privately,...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is predicting the backlash against newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh will continue well into his tenure. Speaking to Black Hollywood Live before the 2018 Merge Summit in Los Angeles on Friday, Mrs. Waters had some words of encouragement for people who feel dejected by the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, who faced allegations of committing sexual misconduct more than 30 years ago. “Never stop,” she instructed liberals, according to a clip flagged by NTK Network on Monday. “That is what we have to do with what happened to Kavanaugh and this confirmation process. “It...

    This NIH contract was originally signed with UCSF for a one-year period starting on Dec. 6, 2013 with the government retaining the option to renew the contract for up to six additional one-year periods running through Dec. 5, 2020. The next renewal deadline is Dec. 5 of this year. The contract--using federal tax dollars--creates a demand for organs taken from late-term aborted babies and its fulfillment is dependent on the continued legality of late-term abortions.

    Last week, a federal judge in California dismissed a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union had filed in 2016 challenging the government’s award of grants to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide services to unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and trafficking victims. In the lawsuit, the ACLU argued the grants violated the Establishment Clause because the Department of Health and Human Services allowed the Catholic organization (and its sub-grantees) to deny girls and women in their care contraceptives and abortion. The court rejected the ACLU’s Establishment Clause claim in a methodical 34-page opinion, explaining that the federal funds...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told a gathering at the 92nd Street Y in New York on Sunday that there may have to be “collateral damage” to those Americans who do not agree with the Democratic Party agenda. Pelosi was being interviewed onstage by Paul Krugman, the left-wing New York Times columnist and Nobel economic laureate who predicted, the day Donald Trump won the presidency, that Trump would trigger “a global recession, with no end in sight.” In a long, rambling monologue, during which she stumbled on her words and appeared to lose her train of thought, Pelosi said:...

    The repeated calls from top Democrats leaders and influential leftists to harass and even attack conservatives and Republicans are having their effect. GOP officials and conservatives have been attacked and threatened anywhere and everywhere. And the attacks aren’t just aimed at national figures such as Senator Ted Cruz, who was driven from a restaurant by #MeToo vigilantes during the confirmation hearings of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Leftists are attacking state and local GOP officials as well. Meanwhile, unhinged university professors have joined top Democrats in calling for an end to civility.

    SONIA SOTOMAYOR, ASSOCIATE JUSTICE, UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT: Ah, a very complicated question. After becoming a lawyer and judge of two courts, before going to the Supreme Court, the greatest difficulty is the expectation of others that, because I was Latina, I didn’t have the intelligence to be able to do this job. I don't know if you know that during this process of confirmation to the Supreme Court there were many who said, ´she does not have the intelligence to do this job well.’ There are many who have changed their minds about that, with the passage of time.

    Former President Jimmy Carter harshly criticized newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, calling him "unfit" to serve on the court. Speaking to a class at Emory University in Atlanta on Wednesday, Carter said that Kavanaugh's behavior during his confirmation hearings demonstrated that his appointment was "a very serious mistake," according to Emory's independent, student-run newspaper, The Emory Wheel. "Whether or not [Kavanaugh] attempted to rape [Christine Blasey Ford], I thought he was temperamentally unfit to serve on the Supreme Court because of his outburst during the hearing," Carter said, according to video taken by a student during his remarks....

"You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the court is a victory for women?" one of the women can be heard asking Cruz in a video posted to Twitter. Cruz responds, stating that he believes in due process.

    This year’s high-stakes midterm elections are fast approaching, and much ink has been spilled about a surge in women candidates running for office. Unfortunately, most of the hype has focused on only one type of woman: anti-Trump, pro-abortion, and angry about it. What about the millions of women and men who are eager to see more protections for unborn children and their mothers – who revere the Constitution and want more fair, impartial judges like Justice Kavanaugh appointed? Who is running to represent folks who not only decline the pink hats and handmaid outfits, but are happy about the direction...
