  • Bad memory: Jackie testifies on Day 7 of Rolling Stone trial

    10/26/2016 7:43:44 AM PDT · by outpostinmass2 · 9 replies
    If “yes, to my great regret” has become the stock answer for remorseful Rolling Stone reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely, then her protagonist in the now-discredited gang rape tale—the one who sent a college into chaos two years ago—has found a mantra of her own: “I don’t remember.” Before a hushed courtroom in downtown Charlottesville, a federal jury and a gallery of 24 spectators gathered Monday to hear over two hours of Jackie bobbing and weaving around questions in her videotaped deposition. This wasn’t the chatty Jackie of yore, the one who enthralled the visiting Erdely over dinner at the College...
  • Day 8: Rolling Stone fact checker, Jackie’s friends testify

    For a second day, former Rolling Stone fact-checker Elisabeth Garber-Paul took the stand to explain why she believed Jackie, the student whose fake gang rape story sent the University of Virginia campus into uproar two years ago. “She seemed to really care about getting this story right,” testified Garber-Paul. “She was totally comfortable with having her peers know she was the Jackie in the story.” Unlike other witnesses in this trial, now in its eighth day, Garber-Paul turns directly toward the jury to explain that she conducted a pair of two-hour conversations with Jackie. “Four hours in one week is...

In addition to actual ballot, she and her husband, David, noticed multiple pieces of advocacy from Democrats. “I found a letter from the governor of Virginia asking me to please vote Democrat and ‘help keep Virginia blue’ this year. Then I got a letter from the Fairfax County Democratic Committee, giving me a step-by-step, yes-and-no what I should vote for as far as the meal tax and all those other things on the ballot,” Jena explained to WND and...

    Barack Obama and Democrats lied for years about how Obamacare would save you money and not affect your health care choices. Obama famously told Americans, “You can keep your plan if you like your plan.” That was probably the most memorable line of his presidency – and it was a bald faced lie. Obamacare was forced into law with 100% of the votes coming from Democratic lawmakers. This week we learned premiums would increase an average of 22% this year. Here are the average increase in premiums in battleground states. -Ohio: 13.12% increase -Florida: 17.40% increase -Pennsylvania: 32.5% increase -Nevada:...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/23/2016 | JEREMY LOTT
    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an important ally of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, funneled nearly $700,000 in donations and support to the campaign of the spouse of an FBI official who then oversaw Clinton's email investigation. The Virginia governor's office was full of denials about the connection on Sunday. "Any insinuation that his support" for state Senate candidate Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, "was tied to anything other than his desire to elect candidates who would help pass his agenda is ridiculous," a spokesman for the governor told the Wall Street Journal. McAuliffe's PAC donated $475,000...

    With more than 50 Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents assigned to investigate Hillary Clinton’s criminal use of a private email server, how did she avoid charges? Now, the smoking gun has emerged.

McAuliffe’s political action committee gave $467,500 to the state senate campaign for FBI agent Andrew McCabe’s wife. He is now the deputy director of the FBI.

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today, as part of its ongoing Election Integrity Project, announced that Judicial Watch volunteer poll observers will monitor polling sites in Virginia on Election Day. Judicial Watch poll monitors will be in Virginia in response to significant concerns about the integrity of the election process there: 1,046 aliens , or residents who are not U.S. citizens, were on the voter rolls in 8 Virginia counties. If that rate of non-citizen registration held in the rest of Virginia’s counties, that would mean that about 6,500 non-citizens are registered to vote in Virginia. A September 2016 report...

    The results of the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections have shown that whoever wins Loudon County wins Virginia. The county in the past 16 years has seen significant growth of the Indian-American community, mainly on account of the emergence of an IT corridor near the Dulles Airport. There were 1,200 Indian-Americans in 2000, which increased to 12,000 in 2010. The number is estimated to have jumped to 30,000 in 2016. The neighboring Fairfax County too has an estimated 20,000 strong Indian-American community members.

    American Thinker ^ | October 7, 2016 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Liberal Catholic candidates for public office such as Democratic nominee for vice president Tim Kaine often proclaim their Catholic identity to curry favor with this constituency, but when it comes to practicing the doctrines of their faith often are what are called “cafeteria Catholics”. They pick and chooses from what they might call the “Ten Suggestions”, particularly when it comes to a woman’s “right to choose”. Unfortunately for Tim Kaine and fellow cafeteria devotees, there is no right to choose on what are called “doctrines of the church”, even if he seems to think so. On the issue of same-sex...

    During a debate Thursday at the National Conference Center, the audience openly laughed at Virginia Democratic congressional candidate LuAnn Bennett when she attempted to tout Obamacare’s affordability. “For the last 50 years, both parties have agreed that we have a health care crisis,” Bennett said. “By 2005, we had 47 million uninsured Americans, and health care costs had grown to 16 percent of our GDP. The Affordable Care Act has made health care more affordable [laughter] –and it’s created access,” she said.

  • Tim Kaine: “Make America GRATE Again”

    The good news is Tim Kaine finally answered an age-old, world-class mystery - “How does anyone make Hillary likeable?” The answer? “Just watch Tim Kaine for a few minutes.”After watching the Vice Presidential debate on Tuesday night, Kaine puts a new spin on “Make America GRATE again.” The man’s personality clearly grates on the nerves of every living human being. Kaine defines “grateness.”I’ve watched political debates my entire life. I’ve been in quite a few myself- including a presidential debate in 2008…and a vice presidential debate after I won the Libertarian vice presidential nomination. I’ve never seen a more unlikeable,...

    Let’s get the easy, obvious point out of the way first: Mike Pence won that debate, and won it handily. Does it matter? Well, I’ll get to how it might in a moment. But let’s first talk about why and how Pence won. Pence is of course a successful politician, but he’s never really been seen as – how to put this – well, he’s never been seen as one of the sharpest minds the GOP has in its roster. He’s not a guy you associate with intellectual depth, like Paul Ryan, or having new ideas on where to take...

    There’s a famous old fable known as “Belling the Cat.” For those who haven’t heard it, it goes like this: A bunch of mice are threatened by a vicious cat, and they call a council to figure out how to solve the problem. One mouse proposes that they place a bell around the cat’s neck. That way, they’ll hear the cat approaching and have plenty of time to run and hide. The mice applaud the plan. They love the plan. It’s a great plan. One mouse asks who’s going to volunteer to place the bell around the cat’s neck. Suddenly,...

    A 15-yard penalty apparently wasn't enough punishment for Josh Norman's bow-and-arrow celebration, so the NFL decided to fine the Washington Redskins star cornerback $10,000 on Wednesday. Norman, who was fined last week for his hit on Giants wideout Sterling Shepard, said he will appeal his latest punishment, which was doled out after he celebrated his fourth-quarter interception in Sunday's win over the Browns.

    Putting convicted criminals to death is an issue Sen. Tim Kaine said he had to “grapple” with when he served as governor of Virginia. Kaine chose the death penalty, not abortion, as the issue that posed the biggest conflict with his Roman Catholic faith. “For me, the hardest struggle in my faith life was, the Catholic Church is against the death penalty and so am I,” Kaine said at Tuesday night’s debate. “But I was governor of a state, and the state law said that there was a death penalty for crimes if the jury determined them to be heinous....
