    A communications adviser to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) during the Supreme Court confirmation fight has abruptly resigned after an accusation of sexual harassment — an allegation he denies. Garrett Ventry submitted his resignation Friday night, he said in a brief phone interview Saturday morning. He said he denies the allegation but stepped down “in order to not be a distraction” as Senate Republicans continue to work to get Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh confirmed.

    When NeverTrump pundit Erick Erickson suggested that the accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford was the result of a PR job, there was both laughter and disdain from the left. There isn’t much mirth or contempt now that it’s been revealed who Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser has retained. According to Politico, Christine Blasey Ford — the 51-year-old California psychologist who says the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her while they were in high school in Maryland — is receiving advice from Democrat activist Ricki Seidman. “Seidman, a senior principal at TSD Communications, in the past worked...

    I have a message for virtue-signaling men who’ve rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion. Stuff it. Your blanket “Believe Women” bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul. A certain class of never Trump-harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s memory-addled partisan accuser Christine Blasey Ford — who cannot recall the year she was allegedly traumatized, where it happened, who threw the party that paralyzed her for nearly four decades, how many were in...

  • Joy Reid Guest: 'Claim' Against Kavanaugh Should be Sufficient to Force Him Out

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    C'mon, Kavanaugh, why won't you walk the plank? After all, someone has made a "claim" against you. That, in a nutshell, was the complaint of a guest on Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. Said Maya Wiley: "Douglas Ginsburg was the person that was nominated by Reagan, after Bork got borked. Within a matter of days, he was honest about marijuana use, and had to step down. But a claim of sexual assault is not sufficient?"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Vice President Mike Pence praised Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a “man of integrity” and said it has been “disgraceful” how some Democrats have handled the confirmation process. Speaking at the Values Voters Summit, Mr. Pence said Mr. Kavanaugh has “impeccable credentials and a proven judicial philosophy” and said he has established a “strong record of support for limited government, religious liberty and our Second Amendment.”

    Yesterday evening, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) gave attorney Debra S. Katz an ultimatum - agree to reasonable testimonial terms for her client and alleged sexual assault survivor Professor Christine Blasey Ford by 10:00 PM Friday or the Senate would go ahead and vote on Monday to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. In return, Katz accused the senator of establishing an "arbitrary" deadline and flatly declined to comply with his request and instead asked for one more day. Shortly after midnight, Sen. Grassley agreed to give Katz and her client one more day.
  • Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford moved 3,000 miles to reinvent her life (T)

    When Donald Trump won his upset presidential victory in 2016, Christine Blasey Ford’s thoughts quickly turned to a name most Americans had never heard of but one that had unsettled her for years: Brett M. Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh — a judge on the prestigious U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia — was among those mentioned as a possible replacement for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in 2016. When Trump nominated Neil M. Gorsuch, Ford was relieved but still uneasy. Then Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced his retirement and Ford, 51, began fretting again. “Her mind-set was,...

  • Week of multiple shootings shows danger of ignoring gun violence (barf alert)

    Chicago S-T ^ | 22 sept 2018
    The string of mass shootings across America this past week should cause all of us to demand new laws to reduce gun violence. There are sensible ways to do that; we’ve written about many of them in our recently published 31 bullets campaign. But too few people are raising their voices. Perhaps they think they can find safety simply by avoiding places where numerous people are likely to be shot. To people who think it’s that simple, we suggest
  • Expected: Hawaii Files For Ninth Circuit En Banc Ruling On Right To Bear Arms

    Ammoland ^ | 18 September, 2018 | Dean Weingarten
    On 24 July, 2018, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld the right to bear arms outside the home. As expected, the State of Hawaii waited until the last possible day, then filed a petition for the Ninth Circuit to hear the case en banc, that is, by the whole court.Because the Ninth Circuit is so large and awkward [President Trump should break this court up] compared to other circuits, an en banc hearing of the Ninth involves 11 judges chosen at random, out of the 23 or 24 judges (depending on confirmation hearings) on the Ninth Circuit....

    Associated Press ^ | Sep. 21, 2018 10:32 PM EDT | Jonathan Lemire
    President Donald Trump issued an ominous warning about the Justice Department and the FBI on Friday, promising further firings to get rid of a “lingering stench” following reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording the president. Trump, speaking at a rally in Missouri, did not explicitly mention the Rosenstein furor, which was first reported by The New York Times and confirmed by The Associated Press. But Trump lashed out against what he sees as anti-Trump bias in the Justice Department, touting the firings he has orchestrated, unnerving many in federal law enforcement and sparking fears about the...

    Ruh-roh: sounds like the Dems have a hesitant, ill-prepared accuser on their hands in the person of Christine Ford. On this evening's Hardball, Politico reporter Annie Karni said: "She is not used to the public spotlight. She is not used to Washington politics. She is from what I understand not yet at all ready for this kind of grilling that she's going to be walking into. Which is part of the delay, which is part of the back and forth whether she wants to do it or not."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The liberal bastion of Massachusetts is sweating over a ballot initiative that could overturn a 2016 law that opened women's public restrooms to men. Bay State voters will see several issues on their ballot in November, including the results of an underdog, grassroots effort to fight the bill signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker. The grassroots effort, begun by 21 people just weeks after Baker signed the bill, meant collecting 50,000 signatures in 45 days. Yet the group now known as Keep MA Safe successfully gathered enough certified signatures by the deadline, and that effort is listed as Question...
