  • GLORIA STEINEM’S RAPE COVER-UP?

    Frontpage Mag ^ | 10/16/2018 | Rebecca Bynum
    Second wave feminism, edgy, in-your-face, bra-burning feminism reached its crescendo in the late sixties and early seventies. The Pill hit the market at the same time which immediately opened a brave new world – a world where sex was de-coupled from reproduction. Almost overnight, marriage and motherhood were deemed to be “below” the aspirations of young girls who were encouraged to pursue careers rather than eligible men. Gloria Steinem’s Ms. magazine was at the forefront of this movement. Marriage was out, children were out, free love was in, and it was definitely fun while it lasted. Soon, however, feminism...

    Carter Page, the energy consultant and Trump advisor, is finally doing what needs to be done: He's suing the Democratic National Committee. According to Fox News: Former Trump campaign official Carter Page announced on Monday a defamation lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) over the salacious dossier that claims he has ties to Russia. Page is also suing Perkins Coie and its partners, a law firm that represented Hillary Clinton’s campaign and hired Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele who compiled the unverified dossier concerning Trump, his associates, and Russia.

    BARRON, Wis. (AP) — A girl resembling a missing teenager whose parents were found dead in their western Wisconsin home has been spotted at a gas station in south Florida, police said. Authorities have been searching for 13-year-old Jayme Closs since around 1 a.m. Monday, when sheriff's deputies responding to a 911 call for help at a home in Barron, Wisconsin, discovered the bodies of 56-year-old James Closs and his 46-year-old Denise Closs. Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said there were gunshots at the Closs home, but didn't specifically say Jayme's parents had been shot to death. He said Jayme...

    Republican Carol Miller has overtaken Richard Ojeda (D) in the race for West Virginia's 3rd District House seat, according to a poll released Tuesday. A Monmouth University poll shows Miller with the support of 48 percent of likely midterm voters in the state, compared to 45 percent who say they support Ojeda. The poll's results come after previous surveys of the district in deep-red West Virginia showed Ojeda with as much as a double-digit lead. In a Monmouth poll in June, Ojeda led Miller by 9 points, according to Monmouth. Monmouth said in a press release with the poll on...

    Wilson voters made a statement Monday afternoon when they banded together to change their political party affiliation. **SNIP** Six voters headed to the Wilson County Board of Elections Monday to do just that, including 88-year-old Joyce Wells. “I’ve never felt like this before,” said Wells, who has been a registered Democrat for 70 years. “I’m going to independent.” Wells said the decision to switch followed Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct. “I can tell you how simple it is for me,” Wells said. “I believe in the Constitution and innocent until...

The Department of Justice, without any advance announcement that it would do so, suddenly released... 341 pages from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility’s report on Andrew McCabe. If you’ll recall, this is the report that resulted in McCabe, then the FBI’s #2 official, being summarily fired by Jeff Sessions back in March of this year.

    Hillary Clinton last week urged Democrats not to be civil with Republicans over political issues, prompting rare disagreement from former First Lady Michelle Obama. Voters also disagree with Clinton but, unlike her, don’t expect things to improve even if Democrats return to power in Congress. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds that a plurality (47%) disagrees with Clinton’s statement: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” Thirty-nine percent (39%) agree with the statement, while 14% are undecided.

  • Packing the Court again

    Washington Times ^ | October 14, 2018 | Thomas C. Stewart
    Faced with a 5-4 conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court, some liberal Democrats want to pack the court to reverse the balance. Once the Democrats regain control of the White House and the Senate, so the argument goes, the new Democratic president could create enough new seats on the Supreme Court to ensure a liberal majority. The last time the Democrats tried that was in 1937. President Franklin Roosevelt had just been re-elected by the largest majority in American history. He carried all but two states, Maine and Vermont, and racked up unprecedented Democratic majorities in the Senate and...
  • New York marks first shooting-free weekend in 25 years

    New York (AFP) - New York has marked its first weekend without a shooting in 25 years, police said Monday. "We went Friday, Saturday, Sunday without any shootings and homicides," New York Police Department chief James O'Neill told reporters. "That's the first time in decades, and that's something not just the NYPD, but all New Yorkers can be proud of." The last time the most populous US city of 8.5 million had a weekend without shootings was in 1993, according to police. But there have been intermittent spikes. The weekend of October 6-7, for example, was "terrible," with several shootings...

    The recent Capitol Hill hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh may have been the biggest flashpoint of the #metoo movement to date. The hearings raised the question of standards, in the #metoo era. Are women to be believed based solely on an unproven allegation? If corroboration is required, then what's good enough? And who gets to decide? Those are some of the tricky questions raised by abuse allegations made against a top Democrat official Congressman Keith Ellison by an ex-girlfriend who spoke to Sharyl this week.
  • Did prosecutor violate election laws in courtroom voter registration push?

    ATLANTA - An unusual voter registration drive inside a courtroom in session has caught the eye of our FOX 5 I-Team. An Atlanta area prosecutor offered defendants in South Fulton municipal court reduced fines if they registered to vote or had already registered to vote. But, senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell says one election lawyer says the courtroom offer violates state and federal election laws. Taylor Swift was the big winner and a big hit with the audience at last night's American Music Awards. She also used the winner's circle to promote voter registration One local prosecutor referenced Taylor Swift...

    A Republican candidate for the Minnesota House said Monday that he is recovering after suffering a concussion from an attack at a restaurant in St. George Township a few days earlier. Shane Mekeland is running for the House in District 15B, an open seat that includes parts of Benton and Sherburne County.

Benton County Sheriff Troy Heck confirmed Monday that his office is investigating the alleged assault, which Mekeland reported took place between 9 p.m....

    The key to voter enthusiasm in this midterm cycle may be the same as it is in real estate: Location, location, location. ABC News’ Rick Klein takes a look at the current generic-ballot polling from the latest Washington Post/ABC partnership and notes that the double-digit Democratic lead would normally spell curtains for the GOP. However, Klein points out that almost all of it comes in districts well in hand for Democrats — and that the battleground looks far different: It could be even worse than that from the Democratic perspective. The WaPo/ABC generic ballot result is on the outer edge...
