    U.S. Democratic Senate hopeful Kyrsten Sinema said “I don’t care” if people go and fight for the Taliban in Afghanistan in a newly resurfaced radio interview and co-hosted a radio show with a conspiracy theorist who claimed the September 11, 2001 terror attacks were perpetrated by the government, Fox News can reveal. Sinema appeared on a radio show in February 2003 hosted by Ernest Hancock, a libertarian activist who presented “The Valley of the Sun” program on a local Arizona radio station. During the interview, Sinema told the host that she didn't object to individuals going abroad and fighting for...

    Full title: Sen. Hirono Condemns McConnell Calling Leftist Protestors a 'Mob', Says It 'Dangerously Underestimates' Them Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Thursday for using the word “mob” in reference to left-wing protestors that have been targeting GOP lawmakers over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “It is the richest of ironies that the majority leader has taken to calling those opposed to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh a mob when several nights a month the president whips his supporters into a frenzy to attack his target of choice,” she said in a...

  • Blumenthal Hits Back at Trump for 'Nonsense' Personal Attacks About His Military Service

    Tweets at link. On Monday, President Trump defended Brett Kavanaugh in part by tearing apart the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He had particularly choice words for Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who claimed that placing Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court would forever be a "stain" on the institution. He has also stated that Trump's prior reluctance to call an FBI probe into the allegations against the nominee was "tantamount to a cover-up." So, Trump took that as an opportunity to zing Blumenthal this week for fabricating his military service back in 2010. In a campaign speech Monday, Trump gave...

    Lou Barletta Releases New TV AD! #Lou4SenateHere's one of Lou Barletta's TV ads. Apparently, the GOPe has decided not to support Rep. Barletta in his challenge to Bob Casey, Jr. for the Pennsylvania US Senate seat. But this guy shouldn't go down without a fight as he is a Trump-style Republican who made his career opposing open borders. Go share this ad on social media, like Lou's Facebook page if you're on that platform, and support the campaign however you can. Without grassroots support, Bob Casey, Jr. -- who IS beatable -- will cruise to an easy victory.

    Our Framers corrected several shortcomings in the English approach to lawmaking. In England, the same people who write statutes also amend the English constitution. We can thank the Framers for their foresight in Article V. Unfortunately, in the name of a living and breathing Constitution, our government increasingly takes the easier British path to amendments, through the government itself. Whether through a formal amending procedure or not, the corruption of both constitutions picked up steam after simultaneous Progressive victories in the early 20th century. Below, we’ll find that Progressive democracy won in 1911 and 1913 in the House of Lords...

    Protesters have ramped up efforts to stop Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination in recent weeks after Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of sexually assaulting her three decades ago — an allegation Kavanaugh has vehemently denied. Dozens of demonstrators were arrested on Capitol Hill Thursday after taking over the offices of Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, Sen. Bob Corker, Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, among others, to once again call on lawmakers to reject Kavanaugh's nomination to the nation's highest court. A crowd of protesters crammed into Grassley's office for most of the day — even ordering in lunch. The majority...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California announced plans Sunday to formally oppose Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, saying justices “should not be an extension of the Republican Party.” Ms. Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said she was troubled by how the nominee had been vetted, citing a lack of documents on Judge Kavanaugh’s career with the Bush administration. But, she wrote in the L.A. Times, her decision was determined by the “very real-world implications” of placing him on the court. “We already knew that Judge Kavanaugh held highly ideological views on the 2nd Amendment,...

    A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Dianne Feinstein is a Judas goat. She, like Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Richard Blumenthal, to name just a few, are leading the Democratic Party over a cliff to its certain end among all civilized people. While there is a percentage of the left that strongly approves, in fact encourages the kind of despicable behavior we saw at the Kavanaugh hearings, people who are invigorated by groups like Occupy Wall Street, Black...

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is "screwing" over his Democratic colleagues by keeping them in session this October and therefore keeping them off the campaign trail, according to Politico's Burgess Everett. "Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to keep the chamber in session for a significant portion of October if not four entire weeks, costing Democrats key campaign trail days and allowing the Senate to continue its work into the fall, according to five Republican officials," Everett writes . Yet, Republicans say two weeks is plenty of time for their Democratic colleagues to make their case to voters. Burgess Everett...

    God bless the stupidity of the far left. In an effort to prove to America that the Democratic Party is actually the one that knows how to best govern, party leaders and protesters alike turned last week's Supreme Court confirmation hearings into a clown show resulting in fake news , theatrics , and more than 200 'resistance' left-wing protesters being arrested by Capitol police. According to NPR , "At least 227 demonstrators were arrested between the start of the nomination hearings on Tuesday and the end of testimony on Friday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police. Most of those...

Wade, affordable health care, voting rights, common-sense gun violence prevention, freedoms of LGBTQ Americans, communities of colors and immigrants are all on the chopping block, just to name a few,” Pelosi said. “And if he doesn't believe in stare decisis as...

    Democrats have spent the week trying to catch Judge Brett Kavanaugh in a lie and employ old emails to cast him as a radical conservative. But as Kavanaugh’s chaotic confirmation hearing winds down Friday, Republicans say they believe Democrats failed to land the kind of fatal blow that could derail the nomination. The office of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said in a statement that Democrats struggled “to make a legitimate case” against Kavanaugh after two days of questioning. “At the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s second day of questioning, Senate Democrats still haven’t...

    Senate Democrats closed down the chamber floor Wednesday to protest the confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The hearings were able to continue, but only after the GOP agreed to quit floor business for the rest of the day. Under Senate rules, committees need consent from both sides of the aisle to meet into the afternoon when the floor is also in session. Consent is almost always granted...

    The father of one of the victims in the February school shooting in Parkland, Florida, approached Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday during a break from his Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill. Fred Guttenberg tweeted that he went to shake Judge Kavanaugh’s hand and explain how his daughter was killed in the February massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, but said the judge pulled away because “he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence.”

    Two short videos at link. Twenty-two people were arrested Tuesday morning after they protested Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, U.S. Capitol Police said. Protesters could be heard urging senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote against Kavanaugh's confirmation and to adjourn Tuesday’s hearing. “Senators, we demand you vote no,” one protester yelled. Another urged senators to "be a hero and cancel this year." "This should be an impeachment proceeding and not a confirmation hearing," another said. The women’s rights group UltraViolet confirmed that its executive director and co-founder, Shaunna Thomas, was among those arrested on Tuesday. The...
