    GOP Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), a critical swing vote in the Supreme Court fight, said on Monday that she believed a woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct should speak with Senate staff under oath. "I believe that the committee investigators should reach out to Deborah Ramirez to question her under oath about what she is alleging happened," Collins told reporters, when asked what she made of the latest allegation against Kavanaugh. Asked if she believed Ramirez should appear at a Judiciary Committee hearing scheduled for Thursday, Collins added that she didn't. "No because there hasn't even been an interview...

    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.

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation has been top news for weeks, but voters don’t think the media is trying to do him any favors. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters think when most reporters write or talk about Kavanaugh, they are trying to defeat his confirmation. Just eight percent (8%) think most reporters are trying to help Kavanaugh win the Senate confirmation, while 37% think most reporters are simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner.

  • Wendy Martinez: Police Believe Stabbing May Have Been Racially Motivated

    Police believe the brutal stabbing of a Washington D.C. jogger may have been racially motivated. Anthony Crawford, 23, was arrested Thursday in connection with the murder of 35-year-old Wendy Martinez. He’s been charged with first-degree murder. Investigators mentioned that Martinez's murder might have been “racially motivated” because Crawford “does not like white people,” according to WUSA9. Police said the attack was “unprovoked,” and did not appear to be a robbery. Crawford did not cooperate with police, authorities said. Video footage captured Martinez, who was newly-engaged, stumbling into a Chinese take-out restaurant on Tuesday, covered in blood. She then collapsed. Police...
  • Judge champions ‘lenient’ sentence for black man in crime because of systemic racism (Ottawa)

    An Ontario judge voices his — and the justice system’s — struggle balancing a public outcry over gun violence with systemic racism against young black males in a remarkable, lengthy and lenient judgment against a Toronto man caught with a loaded handgun after fleeing police. “It seems like not a day goes by without the media reporting yet another gun tragedy, sometimes very horrible ones. It happens in every neighbourhood. It happens in my own. None are immune from gun violence. People are rightfully outraged and bewildered by it. They feel powerless in its onslaught. Afraid,” writes Ontario Superior Court...

    Brett Kavanaugh on Monday said he will "not be intimidated into withdrawing" from his Supreme Court nomination after a second woman came forward with a sexual misconduct allegation against him. Kavanaugh sent a letter on Monday to Sens. Chuck Grassley(R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) — the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, respectively — saying the accusations against him are "smears, pure and simple." "They debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country.

    Jane Mayer said on Monday that Deborah Ramirez, who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexually harassing her, told her New Yorker colleague Ronan Farrow that she couldn’t be sure of the Supreme Court nominee’s guilt. Confronted with a New York Times report indicating Ramirez expressed doubts about Kavanaugh’s guilt to former Yale classmates, Mayer said Ramirez shared those doubts before they published their bombshell report on Sunday. “To Ronan she said she wasn’t absolutely certain, she needed to make certain before she was going to say anything publicly. She remembered the specifics, the graphic specifics, and she tried to remember for...

    Labor unions make up a dozen of the 25 largest outside spending groups in the 2018 midterm elections, and they are donating overwhelmingly to support Democrats, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics. Of the twelve unions, four donated money to conservatives. The Carpenters and Joiners Union, Laborers’ International Union of North America, Operating Engineers Union and American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees donated a combined total of nearly $1.8 million to aid conservatives versus nearly $43 million to aid left-wing candidates. The data were first reported by The Washington Free Beacon.

    Washington ballot initiative I-1639 puts a 10-day waiting period on AR-15 purchases and raises the minimum age for AR-15 purchases to 21. The initiative also puts special background checks in place and adds other controls to such a degree that the Seattle Times reports the initiative’s passage will make “Washington’s firearms laws…among the strictest in the country.” Washington state made news by passing universal background checks via ballot initiative in 2014. The initiative was bankrolled by millionaires and billionaires such as Steve and Connie Ballmer, Nick and Lenore Hanauer, and Bill and Melinda Gates, among others. The campaign supporting the...

    Whatever happens to Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats have normalized yet another illiberal position in their pretend crusade to save the Constitution from Donald Trump. “Doesn’t Kavanaugh have the same presumption of innocence as anyone else in America?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono this past Sunday. “I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases,” was her unexpectedly honest answer. Plainly put, Hirono argues that because Kavanaugh—who earned the highest rating from the ABA during his time on the DC appellate court—has a record of originalist...

    Predictions of a looming Democratic “blue wave” haven’t soured Christian conservative activists, who say President Trump has notched so many surprise wins that they have faith he will again defy the naysayers and deliver Republican victories in November. Leaders on the religious right are more measured, saying Republican control of the House is very much in jeopardy and warning the Republican faithful not to become overconfident in Mr. Trump’s ability to deliver the impossible. The midterms could be much closer than many expect, Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, told reporters last week. “I think what you are...
