    The controversy over a campaign staffer to Republican state Sen. Martin Golden inviting an alt-right leader to speak at a GOP club continued to escalate as a Bay Ridge social justice organization demonstrated in front of the lawmaker’s campaign headquarters and supporters staunchly defended him. The group Bay Ridge for Social Justice held a protest rally outside Golden’s campaign office at 7615 Third Ave. on Oct. 21 to demand that the senator fire Ian Reilly.

    Capitol Police on October 3 arrested 27-year old congressional staffer Jackson Cosko for posting on Wikipedia the private addresses of three members of the Senate Judiciary Committee—what’s known as “doxxing” (a word derived from the shorthand for “document”). Cosko is facing serious charges that include illegally posting private information of public figures, witness tampering, threats, identity theft, and unlawful entry. In the mainstream media, Cosko is being portrayed as a hapless overzealous intern who didn’t even have the smarts to cover up his criminal act. His former boss— Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) has denied she knew anything about Cosko’s activities....

    Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour on Friday launched a racial attack against Sen. Susan Collins, saying the Maine Republican was guilty of espousing “white supremacy” with her decision to support the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Ms. Sarsour, a prominent Palestinian-American activist, blasted Ms. Collins on Twitter as a “white woman” and the “mother & grandmother of white women in America who gave us a Donald Trump presidency.”

    As hinted at days earlier here at D.C. Whispers, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now preparing to launch a full investigation into the machinations of Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team and the office of Senator Diane Feinstein based upon “…recently uncovered information.” It appears that FBI supplemental investigation into Judge (Justice) Brett Kavanaugh that Senator Feinstein demanded has backfired on her – BIG TIME.

    Associate Justices of the Supreme Court Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor said they are concerned the court’s legitimacy could be undermined if it is viewed as politically divided. What did they say? “We don’t have an army, we don’t have any money, the only way we get people to do what we say that they should do is because people respect us and respect our fairness,” Kagan said in an report. “Part of the court’s legitimacy depends on people not seeing the court in the way that people see the rest of the governing structures of this country now....

    “I desire you would Remember the Ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the Husbands. Remember all Men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the Ladies we are determined to foment a Rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice, or Representation” Abigail Adams wrote that in 1776. Her words have never seemed more prescient than they do today. Surely, this is a time where many ladies wish...

    Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder reacted to the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Saturday by questioning the legitimacy of the court and arguing that it needed to regain the nation's trust. Holder -- who served as the nation’s top lawyer under former President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2015 -- said the treatment of former Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland by Senate Republicans, as well as Kavanaugh’s confirmation, meant the legitimacy of the court was in question. “With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the...

    Former US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday warned of a war with Iran after the United States pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal between the Islamic Republic and world powers, AFP reported. Kerry spearheaded the diplomacy that led to the 2015 agreement in which Iran promised Western powers, Russia and China to scale back its nuclear program drastically in return for sanctions relief. In May, US President Donald Trump withdrew from the agreement, which he has slammed as “the worst deal ever negotiated”. Trump later signed an executive order officially reinstating US sanctions against Iran. Additional US...

    FULL TITLE: Furious protesters are removed from the steps of the Supreme Court after banging on the door while Kavanaugh was being sworn in, hours after interrupting his Senate confirmation hearing – but Trump laughs off their ‘tiny’ gathering A large crowd of protesters gathered on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court and banged on its doors while Judge Brett Kavanaugh was being sworn in as a justice on Saturday evening. The demonstrators went up the steps of the Supreme Court holding signs and chanting, 'we believe survivors' and 'hey hey, ho ho, Kavanaugh has got to go.' Officers...

    South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham did not take kindly to a group of protesters who followed him to his car, yelling demeaning comments. The protesters were waiting outside of Graham’s Senate office building protesting Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The protesters ran from their position standing on the side of the road with “STOP KAVANAUGH” signs to harass the Senator on his way to his waiting car. The women yelled that Graham was “despicable” and needed to be “kicked out of office.” In response, Graham smiled and wondered aloud if the women were South Carolina voters. “We will...

    For a full week, a big black banner was posted from a sidewalk in Berkeley, California. “OCCUPY WHOLE FOODS”, it declared in large, white block letters. But the protesters who created it, a group from the animal rights activist organization Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), were not actually able to do much occupying. Just days before a weeklong protest scheduled for late September, in which the activists had planned to call attention to alleged animal welfare violations by suppliers to Whole Foods’ parent company, Amazon, the Berkeley store filed a restraining order. “We are not allowed to even step foot in...

    "Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength,” reflected longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer. The events of the last month affirm this wisdom. A Democratic Party lacking the White House, majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate, and the Supreme Court imitated strength in practicing rudeness. Now, hours before the confirmation vote that they sought to postpone, the Democrats’ boisterousness appears, belatedly at least, as camouflage for weakness. This weakness, which may seem anything but when in earshot of protesters, appears most apparent in the U.S. Senate. Democrats lack the raw numbers to win. Unable to rely on an institutional...

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) on Friday said that the U.S. Senate will be not be intimidated by "paid protesters" in its quest to vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "Our vote today was important not only because it will allow us to move forward and conclude this process," Cornyn said on the Senate floor after the chamber voted in favor of ending debate on Kavanaugh's nomination. "It was important because it showed that the U.S. Senate will not be intimidated. "We will not be bullied by the screams of paid protesters and name-calling by the mob." The line from...

    On Tuesday afternoon, hundreds of Philadelphians caused traffic, wore costumes, made lots of noise, and carried colorful signs across Center City. No, it wasn’t a pre-Halloween festival — it was yet another anti-Trump protest. ---SNIP--- These anti-Trump protests have become less about the issues at hand and more about the kind of political grandstanding that exhausts us all. I’ve attended countless protests over the years and have found the most powerful ones to be less manufactured.
