    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.

    Am Thinker ^ | Sep 23, 2018 | Clarice Feldman
    There were two compelling stories this week: The Kavanaugh confirmation to the Supreme Court and the dueling tales respecting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The latter was brilliantly handled by this site’s owner, Thomas Lifson, and I have little to add to his recitation of the events though I urge you to read it for a  concise analysis of what was reported this week. The account in the New York Times. which first reported that Rosenstein had offered to wear a wire to record his conversations with the President and suggested the 25thAmendment might be pursued, strikes me at first glance as Andrew McCabe’s last-ditch attempt...
  • Rosenstein's Fate Could Turn on Which Account Trump Believes

    09/23/2018 8:09:14 AM PDT · by Enterprise · 22 replies ^ | September 23, 2018 | Unknown
    The fate of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein could turn on whether President Donald Trump believes the account of an ex-FBI official who, as Trump once asserted in a tweet, had "LIED! LIED! LIED!" Rosenstein discussed secretly recording Trump, though one person who was present at the time said Rosenstein was just being sarcastic, and reportedly suggested removing the commander in chief from office. Rosenstein issued a swift denial to both claims. The revelation that the second-ranking Justice Department official had even broached those ideas has created even more uncertainty for him at a time when Trump has railed against...

    She (Monahan) tweeted this: "Four people, including my supervisor at the time, stated that I came to them after and shared the exact story I shared publicly, I shared multiple text between me and Keith, where I discuss the abuse with him and much more. As I said before, I knew I wouldn't be believed." And this: "I expected everything that has taken place, before I decided to break my silence. I even stated it in my original statement. I showed up for myself & that was a huge piece of my healing." And, this: "My grand baby deserves a...

    Cody Wilson, the public voice and face of Defense Distributed, is in serious legal trouble.Cody Wilson has a warrant for his arrest, signed by a judge in Texas. Wilson is said to be in Taiwan, and may stay there depending on the outcome. The warrant is based on credible evidence that Cody Wilson paid for sex with a 16-year-old woman. It is unknown if Wilson has been legally served. It seems unlikely. Cody Wilson has been a thorn in the side of those who want a disarmed population for the last six years. His exploits with 3D printed guns...

    In written testimony sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee, a third named witness has rejected the allegations made by Judge Kavanaughs accuser. Having been asked by a Senate staffer to comment on the charges advanced against the nominee, a lawyer for Leland Ingham Keyser wrote: Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.Under 18 U.S.C 1001, letters to the Judiciary Committee are subject to criminal penalty if false.

    Democratic insurgents hoping to topple House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) lack a key ingredient in their master plan: a formidable challenger. Pelosis detractors have argued for years that Democrats need an image overhaul by empowering newer members at the very top of the party. But they suffered a big setback when Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.), thought by many to be Pelosis heir apparent, was unseated himself in an astonishing primary defeat earlier this year.

    A green card is no longer an immigrants insurance policy against deportation in the Donald Trump era. Documented immigrants can now be deported from the United States if they break the rules of federal and state programs that offer public benefits to immigrants. New guidelines implemented last week by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services say that immigrants who abuse any program related to the reception of public benefits will be summoned to appear before an immigration court. Immigrants will be subjected to removal procedures if theres evidence of fraud or willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter or application...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CN) Five months after authorities cracked a decades-old cold case by nabbing the Golden State Killer, law enforcement officials announced Friday the capture of another notorious California predator, the NorCal rapist, who is accused of raping at least 10 women over 15 years. Officers arrested 58-year-old Roy Charles Waller Thursday morning as he arrived at work at the University of California Berkeley. Authorities found Waller by applying the same method used to catch the Golden State Killer matching old crime scene DNA with data uploaded to the website of a Florida-based genealogy company called GED match....

    Statement from Debra Katz: "As Dr. Ford has said, she did not share her story publicly or with anyone for years following the incident with Judge Kavanaugh. Its not surprising that Ms. Keyser has no recollection of the evening as they did not discuss it.... 1/2 .. Its also unremarkable that Ms. Keyser does not remember attending a specific gathering 30 years ago at which nothing of consequence happened to her. Dr. Ford of course will never forget this gathering because of what happened to her there. 2/2

    NC Warn (and several newspapers) ^ | Sept 19 2018 | Jim Warren
    The latest in a string of monster storms of recent years, Hurricane Florence punctuates the fact that the cost of climate pollution is accelerating. Duke Energy executives bear much of the blame for Hurricane Florences devastation. The Charlotte-based corporation is one of the worlds largest climate polluters, its been aggressively expanding its use of climate-wrecking fracked gas (methane), opposing requirements to curb methane venting and leakage, impeding the cheaper, clean-energy solutions that are ready to replace fossil-fueled electricity, and suppressing attention to these interrelated factors. In short, Dukes Energys natural gas expansion is amplifying global heating at the worst possible...

    DFL candidate Keith Ellison continued to deny allegations of domestic abuse Friday night, at times fending off questions from both moderators and opponent Doug Wardlow during the first post-primary debate for Minnesota attorney general hosted by TPTs Almanac public affairs show. Ellison, a six-term member of the U.S. House from Minneapolis, has been accused by former girlfriend Karen Monahan of domestic abuse. She has said he dragged her off a bed by her feet during a fight before they separated in 2016 and alleges years of emotional abuse. During the Almanac debate, Ellison said it simply isnt true. **SNIP** Will...

    Christine Blasey Ford has named several people who would be witnesses to, or have knowledge of, what she says happened to her. Patrick Smyth denies it. Mark Judge denies it. Brett Kavanaugh denies it. People have claimed these are all men who went to school together, so they must be protecting themselves. What about any female witnesses? Christine Blasey Ford said there was one. Her name is Leland Keyser. She was Ford's classmate. She was not an eye witness, but Ford said she had knowledge of the party and assault. I have obtained Keyser's attorney's letter to the Senate Judiciary...

    With rising unilateralism challenging its very existence, the United Nations convenes its annual meeting of world leaders Monday and will try once more to tackle problems together as a community of nations, addressing threats ranging from Mideast conflicts to the effects of global warming and also encouraging the glimmer of hope over the nuclear standoff in North Korea. This year, 133 world leaders have signed up to attend the General Assembly session, a significant increase from last years 114. Secretary-General Antnio Guterres called the expected large turnout eloquent proof of the confidence of the international community in the United...

    Its a kangaroo court. Understand, this is not about Christine Blasey Ford. Shes a tool a quite willing tool, but a tool all the same. This is not even about the eminently qualified federal circuit-court judge Brett Kavanaugh it would be no different regardless of which nominee President Trump selected in consultation with White House counsel Don McGahn, the Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, and the rest of the originalist, conservative legal community come of age. Democrats do not want a model of constitutional fidelity and judicial restraint elevated to the Supreme Court. End of story. And who...
