    NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Declaring Bill Cosby doesn’t deserve a free pass because of his advanced age, prosecutors on Monday asked a judge to sentence the comedian to five to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman, while the defense argued that he is too old and helpless to do time behind bars. “What does an 81-year-old man do in prison?” defense attorney Joseph Green asked on Day 1 of the sentencing hearing for Cosby, who is legally blind and dependent on others. “How does he fight off the people who are trying to extort him,...

    Critics of the long-waited agreement between China and the Vatican on the appointment of bishop are merely a “loud minority,” a Vatican bishop said Friday. “They are very strong in their position. They are loud, but there are not very many of them. They are a loud minority,” said Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, also chancellor of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. He made the remarks when asked to comment on a reported deal between China and the Vatican on the appointment of bishops, which critics say is a deal that “sells out” the Holy See. “In our interpretation, the...

    "Take . . . the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" (Eph. 6:17). To wield the sword of the Spirit is to apply specific Biblical principles to specific situations. Jesus gave us the perfect example of skillful and precise use of the sword of the Spirit. Following His baptism, "Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, 'If You are the Son of God, command that...

    “But the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words” (Romans 8:26). Because He understands our struggles in this life, the Holy Spirit continually prays for us before the Father’s throne. In the midst of life’s many difficulties and stressful times, there is hardly anything more comforting than knowing you have a friend—someone on your side. In the legal realm, an attorney formally argues your case when you need to settle a judicial or financial dispute. This concept of friend and advocate is right at the heart of the Holy Spirit’s role as our Paraclete, one called...

    Synopsis: I’m sick of this story. I’ve barely covered it, don’t like it, think it has already set many, many horrible precedents for both public discourse in general as well as the rules of Senate procedure. But the left doesn’t care about that. No, if they get to destroy the entire United States and all it stands for, their mission will have been accomplished. Now, I’m not a fan of Senator Mitch McConnell, however, he laid out the situation on the floor of the U.S. Senate today in precise and detailed fashion.
  • Ronan Farrow’s Kavanaugh story causes media meltdown

    New Yorker writers Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer pushed back Monday against the New York Times’ coverage of the latest sexual-misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. ** The paper said it interviewed “several dozen people” in a vain attempt to find someone with “firsthand knowledge” to corroborate Ramirez’s allegations. The Times also said Ramirez contacted former classmates to see if they remembered the alleged incident — and told some she wasn’t sure it was Kavanaugh who exposed himself. But in a Twitter post Monday, Farrow said it was “not accurate” for a Washington Post columnist to have tweeted...

    NBC host Megyn Kelly has stood up for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as she made the point that he has denied the sexual harassment allegations and said his accuser was being represented by 'Democratic operatives'. Kelly, a victim of sexual harassment herself, was hosting a panel on her Megyn Kelly Today show on Monday when she fired up and said the whole situation involving Kavanaugh had become 'completely political'. It comes after a second woman came forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct decades ago. Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor, last week accused him of sexual assault in...

    Renate Schroeder Dolphin, a woman who knew Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during his teenage years, is denouncing a "horrible" and "simply untrue" insinuation after The New York Times found her referenced several times by name in his high school yearbook. The newspaper reported on Monday that the woman’s name appeared in a photo in Georgetown Preparatory School’s 1983 yearbook that featured Kavanaugh, who has been accused of committing sexual assault at a party when he was in high school, and four other men along with the caption “Renate Alumni.” According to the newspaper, the phrase was a reference to...

    **SNIP** While most Democrats are taking Ramirez’s allegation seriously — if not to the extent they're publicly backed Ford — they’re stopping far short of giving the same treatment to a third, unknown woman tied to the nominee and represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti. Avenatti has tweeted that his client is a “woman with credible information” concerning “the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs” by Kavanaugh and his longtime friend Mark Judge, whom Ford has identified as the third person in the room during her alleged assault. But Democratic senators are treading lightly on the claims from Avenatti, who also...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein faces a high-stakes meeting on Thursday with President Trump that may determine his future as the Department of Justice official charged with overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

The day began with reports that Rosenstein was headed to the White House with the expectation that he would be fired days after Friday’s bombshell New York...

    In the Democratic kangaroo court, the burden of proof is on the accused -- when he's a Republican. On today's MTP Daily, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) proclaimed "I believe Dr. Ford and Deborah Ramirez," despite the lack of corroborating witnesses. They don't have to prove these allegations, the senator said: "It is Judge Kavanaugh who is seeking a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, and who I think now bears the burden of disproving these allegations, rather than Dr. Ford and Ms. Ramirez."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
