    A pair of protesters confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an airport over his vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, USA Today reported Wednesday. "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. The women then press Cruz about his support for Kavanaugh and ask the senator whether he believed the judge committed perjury during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee late last month regarding allegations...
  • Feinstein wants Kavanaugh sexual misconduct investigation reopened if Dems take Senate

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday that if Democrats took control of the Senate following November’s midterm elections, she would be in favor of reopening an investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations levelled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. “I’d be in favor of opening an investigation into the allegations,” Feinstein, the ranking minority member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said during a debate in San Francisco with her challenger, state Sen. Kevin de León. A fellow Democrat, de León emerged from California’s hectic jungle primary system to challenge one of the Senate’s longest tenured members for her seat. Feinstein...
  • Why Brett Kavanaugh Should Sue Christine Blasey Ford For Defamation

    The Federalist ^ | October 17, 2018 | Chris Murray
    The controversy over Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court didn’t end when he was sworn in. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations will haunt Kavanaugh for the rest of his career. Critics say his elevation to the court will cast a shadow of illegitimacy over the institution for years to come. This is why Kavanaugh should consider suing Ford for defamation now: Not to retaliate or seek damages, but in the public’s interest. The Senate Judiciary Committee’s proceedings involving Ford’s accusations left many observers unsure what to think. Also, a defamation case would give both Kavanaugh and Ford access to judicial...

    The University of Southern Maine apologized Wednesday for the “rogue behavior” of a retired professor who offered credit for participating in a protest against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, announcing that she has since been barred from teaching at the university. Susan Feiner, who retired in September but continued to teach some classes, offered students one credit for taking a pop-up course called “Engaged Citizenship,” which would bus students to Washington to participate in a protest urging Republican Sen. Susan Collins to oppose confirming then-Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    The despicable treatment now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh received at his Senate confirmation hearing proves conclusively that the Democratic Party is not the party of women – it is the party of exploiting women for political gain. In their eagerness to pander to women by saying absolutely anything that might win their votes, Democrats were even willing to throw out the centuries-old concept that is the foundation of our legal system: the presumption that we are all innocent until proven guilty. Democrats insisted that women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct should automatically be believed with absolutely zero evidence to back...
  • Liberal Professors Launch Campaign To Pack Supreme Court After Kavanaugh Confirmation

    Less than a month after the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh entrenched a 5-4 conservative majority on the Supreme Court, leading law professors are urging Democrats to expand the size of all of the nation's federal courts and pack them with liberals. Far-left Harvard professors Mark Tushnet and Laurence Tribe are lending their support to the so-called "1.20.21 Project," which was launched by political science professor Aaron Belkin on Wednesday to counter "Republican obstruction, theft and procedural abuse" of the federal judiciary. That rhetoric reflects the professors' apparent surprise after Democrats lost the 2016 presidential election, which they had...

    American Greatness ^ | October 17, 2018 | Deion Kathawa
    It’s no secret that the American polity really doesn’t care about, nor does it fully understand, the role or demands of classical virtue—and that it hasn’t for a very long time. But many, especially (and hypocritically) those who derive an unhealthy thrill from scorning, mocking, and deriding any and all expressions of traditional virtue, are absolutely certain of one thing: President Trump emphatically is neither a virtuous man nor a virtuous president. I think they are right he is not a virtuous man. But I also think that’s not a terribly relevant observation. Why? Because the country (at their behest!)...

    Front Page Magazine ^ | October 17, 2018 | Daniel Greenfield
    Why did the Democrats launch an unprecedented smear campaign against a Supreme Court nominee? The matrix of motives centers on a cynical midterm ploy to boost turnout, appeal to suburban female voters in swing states and, hopefully, defer the nomination to a Dem Senate. But that’s the short game, not the long game. The attack on Brett Kavanaugh was not just an assault on a man, but an attack on an institution. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85 years old and Stephen Breyer is 80 years old. Presidential incumbents tend to win reelection. Even if the Democrats take the Senate, the...

    "It was heartbreaking. But I think women are not going to recede," Waters said. "Women are going to continue to confront what took place in that confirmation and him. And he won't rest easy in his job." . . Waters has encouraged harassment of public officials in the past, famously telling supporters to "create a crowd" when they see Republican officials to "tell them they're not welcome." This comment led to some censure from leaders in the Democratic Party, but Waters said she will continue to back such direct action.

    North Dakota Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp apologized Tuesday for publishing a Sunday ad listing alleged sexual assault survivors, a number of whom said they had not given their permission to be in the ad or were not survivors of sexual assault. “I deeply regret this mistake and we are in the process of issuing a retraction, personally apologizing to each of the people impacted by this and taking the necessary steps to ensure this never happens again,” Heitkamp said in a statement

    On the heels of the Kavanaugh hearings, some teachers have wondered aloud — via Twitter — how they should handle the contentious topic in their classrooms. While some teachers have no interest in touching the issue with a 10-foot pole, others may find it nearly impossible not to make mention of an event that consumed the nation for weeks. But we can learn a lot about how one educator in particular asked the Twitterverse for suggestions. “I’m a teacher, and I don’t know what I’m going to say to my students if Kavanaugh gets confirmed. Do I tell them that...

    Republican strategist Patrick Ruffini said Monday that Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings gave the GOP a much-needed boost ahead of November's midterm elections by taking the focus off of President Trump. "I think what was interesting with the few weeks we've gone through with the Brett Kavanaugh nomination is that for a long period of time, it wasn't about [Trump] exclusively," Ruffini, co-founder of Echelon Insights, told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." "That has helped Republicans, right? I think the fact that ... we have moved from an issue — Trump has been an issue that has almost,...

    Sasse went on to first praise the “#MeToo” movement as “really important,” saying that Ford “needed to be heard,” but he said that the investigation and lack of corroboration from 4 alleged witnesses led him to vote to confirm Kavanaugh. Behar tried to argue with Sasse claiming the people named simply “didn’t remember it” and were “probably drunk.”

    1. Kavanaugh is Catholic. The judge is a regular lector at his church, the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, D.C., near his Maryland home. He also volunteers for the St. Maria’s Meals program at Catholic Charities, according to his biography on the court website and has tutored at the Washington Jesuit Academy. 2. He has ruled on issues important to religious conservatives, including abortion rights. Among them: Kavanaugh dissented last year on a controversial decision that allowed an undocumented teenager who had crossed from Mexico into Texas as an unaccompanied minor to get an abortion while living...

    Republicans are ecstatic and Democrats are livid about Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation as a Supreme Court justice. But while the Supreme Court is important, many Americans tend to exaggerate its powers. Democrats still firmly control the nation’s district courts and circuit courts of appeals, where virtually all federal judicial decisions are made.

    A former volunteer for New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy's (D) campaign has accused one of his former staffers of sexually assaulting her during the 2017 gubernatorial campaign, raising questions about the state's protocol for handling such complaints, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. Katie Brennan, the chief of staff for New Jersey's housing agency, detailed to the news outlet that Albert Alvarez allegedly forced himself on her in April 2017, when both were working on Murphy's campaign. She said she contacted the police the next day, told friends and family about the incident and went to the hospital for a...

    Beyond party and ideology, let’s meet the challenge to care for women and children. There’s a scene in the new movie Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer that should launch candid conversations around the country. Alexis McGuire (played by Sarah Jane Morris), the lead prosecutor in the case against the Philadelphia abortion-clinic doctor Kermit Gosnell, is depicted at home with her husband, distraught at the reality of the horror she’s had to face in the investigation. She explains: Mother’s Day 1972. Gosnell and this psychologist bussed in 15 pregnant women from Chicago. Second trimester. They were doing this...

    ... For Democrats, this return to normalcy is intolerable. They are doubling down on their war against the new Justice. They have several related goals: Undermine Justice Kavanaugh’s authority on the Court, argue that his presence undermines the legitimacy of the Supreme Court itself, drive Justice Kavanaugh off the Court through impeachment if they win control of the House of Representatives, and, most fantastic of all, consider expanding the size of the Court if they regain control of the government. At his political rallies, President Trump has taken to calling out “the radical Democrats.” Democrats are appalled at the President’s...

    President Donald Trump gave unusually strong praise for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his role in Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court at a rally in Richmond, Kentucky, Saturday evening. "There's nobody tougher, there's nobody smarter," Trump said of McConnell to a cheering crowd of some 6,000 supporters in the senator's home state. "He stared down the angry left-wing mob." McConnell briefly took the stage and praised Trump for his judicial nominations, asking him to keep it up. Trump said that Democrats "demonized" Kavanaugh before knowing anything about him. "What happened to him was so unfair, I've...
