    Warning: only read this post if you really like a good conspiratorial "inside politics" scenario...ūüėĀ Per Article 1 Section 5 of the Constitution, "Neither House, during the Session of Congress, shall, without the Consent of the other,¬†adjourn¬†for more than¬†three¬†days, nor to any other Place than that in which the¬†two Houses shall be sitting." So McConnell fed up with the Kavanaugh contretemps gets the Senate to vote to adjourn till after the midterm elections... BUT Ryan refuses to let the House adjourn, because they are, "doing the people's business." So, the Senate cannot adjourn by this section... BUT This type of...

    We may now know the real reason that Christine Blasey Ford has come forward to stop Brett Kavanaugh from joining the Supreme Court. She feels that it will affect her wallet. She has written or co-written 8 studies on the abortion pill, known as RU-486, which contains the ingredient mifepristone and is sold under the name of Korlym. It is the one and only product sold by Corcept Therapeutics. Ford works for Corcept Therapeutics and promotes Korlym. Should that product be outlawed by the Supreme Court, the company would likely be out of business. That seems like a very powerful...

    I know the title is confusing, you probably think you know who Iím talking about but in fact, this is an art post. I was inspired by the art work contained in yesterdayís comments: from Son of Sobieskiís fine skeletor street art to Claireís little granddaughterís hand drawn and painted cartoon characters. So Iím just going to drop this lesson in optical illusion here for you to study. It seems a very helpful skill to have in todayís climate. So get your paper, pens, crayons (Iím talking to you Jetti) and rulers out so you too can practice the fine...

    Today my son brought up that they're having a "Peace Day" "celebration" tomorrow at school with stations to do things at. Such as "painting rocks with peace signs" and origami (wanted to do "peace" sign but wouldn't work he thinks). I.e., looks like they're pushing the stupid UN idea and of course, the hippie norm.

    Hollywood actresses and women from around the U.S., some being key members of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, have shown their support for Christine Blasey Ford. Blasey, a professor at California's Palo Alto University, who recently accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has seen significant public support after she made the difficult decision to publicly share her story. Now, the likes of Julianne Moore, America Ferrera, Gabrielle Union, Amber Tamblyn, Eva Longoria, Jamia Wilson, and Marisa Tomei, along with many other women from different situations, all read the same supportive letter to Ford, in a video...

If you're not, Judge Kavanaugh, take the lie detector test.Ē Behar spat, ďOr are you a coward?Ē

    The Oregonian ^ | September 19, 2018 | Kathleen Parker, The Washington Post
    In one of Brett Kavanaugh's responses to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl when he was in high school, a charge he has denied "categorically and unequivocally," he suggested that, perhaps, this was a case of mistaken identity. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a member of the Judiciary Committee reiterated this notion, saying that perhaps the accuser was "mixed up." And, on Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal's editorial board also floated the possibility of mistaken identity. As crazy as that sounds, it wouldn't be unheard of. And, given the high regard in which Kavanaugh has been held throughout his...

    In a last ditch desperate attempt to derail Judge Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court, democrats have sunk deep in the doo-doo. They risk ridicule and derision within their own party. Even democrats wearing 'coke bottle' glasses see through the pathetic charade orchestrated by the handlers of Christine Blasely. They have conjured up absurd allegations to destroy a very fine gentlemen's impeccable character, his family, and his judicial career. Democrats are both secretly and publicly ashamed of Diane Feinstein, the aged senator that tossed the 'Hail Mary' pass to destroy Judge Kavanaugh. They're wondering why an incredibly wealthy elderly senator...

    Well this is news to millions of fans of the beloved PBS franchise. Then again, maybe not. The topic of Bert and Ernieís homosexuality has been a subtle joke over the years. Saltzman recalled a comical story from the San Francisco Chronicle awhile back that mentioned how one progressive child picked up on the not-so-subtle clues. He stated, ďa preschooler in the city turned to mom and asked, ĎAre Bert and Ernie lovers?í ďThat coming from a preschooler was fun, and that got passed around,Ē he mentioned

    Kavanaugh Accuserís Brother Worked for Law Firm that Paid Fusion GPS For Work with Russian Lawyer Who Set Up Trump Tower Meeting Ralph Blasey III, Christine Fordís brother was formerly employed at the D.C. offices of Baker & Hostetler LLP. Thatís the same firm that made payments over over half a million dollars to Fusion GPS. Ralph Blasey III left Baker & Hostetler LLP in 2004. Still, itsí just another rather odd twist to the case of the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh. First it was revealed Ford is a far left, Northern California professor.

    Tom Arnold is on a gonzo mission to save the world from Donald Trump. On Sunday night, this two-year odyssey took a violent turn when Arnold got into a scrap with Mark Burnett, the TV mogul and longtime friend of the U.S. president. As Arnold tweeted just after midnight: ďMark Burnett just went apes--t & choked me at this huge Emmy party then he ran away with his torn Pink shirt & missing gold chain. Iím waiting for LAPD.Ē According to Variety, the scuffle happened as both men entered the Evening Before Emmy party. Although details remain fuzzy, Arnoldís lawyer,...

The adult film star, who shot to fame after claiming she had an affair with Donald Trump, was due to appear on the reality show but pulled out at the last minute.

    "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris is the latest public figure refusing to be owned by our current political climate. Like Colin Kaepernick, he will not sacrifice his voice to conform to a system that caters to President Donald Trump and his supposedly profitable fan base. Barris recently told The Hollywood Reporter he is departing ABC, a network the magazine describes as led by executives "forthright about their desire for more red-state programming since Trump's win," for Netflix. Barris revealed that his last straw with ABC was the network's shelving -- and as the magazine adds, all but erasing from existence, with...

On MSNBC, host Chris Hayes invited meteorologist Eric Holthaus on to argue global warming is making hurricanes worse, and that President Trump is to blame. "We have a president that is denying the impacts of, you know, this hurricane season last year and this year and actively making the problem worse by, you know, not addressing this root cause of worsening storms,Ē Holthaus told to a nodding Hayes.

The DOJ announced the meeting last week,...
