  • Democrats believe Ramirez but stiff-arm Avenatti

    Politico ^ | 9/24/18 | ELANA SCHOR, RACHAEL BADE
    **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...
  • Gore Says Trump Should Be Terminated for Ethical Reasons [semi-satire]

    Former Vice-President Al Gore advanced the notion that "Trump's Presidency should be terminated early for ethical reasons. Science has shown that climate change is the biggest threat the planet has ever seen. Not only do we see Trump denying this threat. His policies are exacerbating the threat." "The big economic boom that Trump is so proud of is a planetary disaster," the former Veep contended. "More people working and more consumerism are accelerating the march to global catastrophe. After the eight years of hard work by the Obama Administration to throttle expectations it is disheartening to see that undone. The...

    Judicial Watch ^ | September 24, 2018 | Tom Fitton
    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the latest efforts to delay Judge Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation: Americans should brook no further delay of a full Senate vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Let’s be clear: Leftists are trying to blow up the Senate confirmation process with shady smears. There is no legitimate reason that these last-minute allegations can’t be summarily evaluated, and a Judiciary Committee vote taken this week. Leftist law breaking, rule breaking, violence, and disruption have already marred the public Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. One can only imagine...

    The shocking allegations made by Deborah Ramirez against Brett Kavanaugh fell apart in record time, but that hasn't stopped Democrats from seizing on these new allegations to... you guessed it, call for a delay. Recent revelations suggest this was the Democrats' plan all along — that this whole bogus story was concocted by Senate Democrats as Christine Blasey Ford's story fell apart last week.Check out what Ronan Farrow said on Good Morning America earlier today: STEPHANOPOULOS: Why did [Deborah Ramirez] come forward? FARROW: She came forward because Senate Democrats came looking for this claim. She did not flag this. This came...
  • Nolte: Every Witness Named by Kavanaugh’s Accusers Sides with Kavanaugh

    Breitbart ^ | 24 Sep 2018 | John Nolte
    The two women making sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh claim to have witnesses, but so far, all of their witnesses back Kavanaugh’s claim that nothing happened. It might be difficult to remember this as Democrats and the media throw around phrases like “second accuser” and “attempted sexual assault” and “exposing himself” against the Supreme Court nominee. But the facts are still the facts, and every single witness named so far by both accusers say they witnessed nothing of the sort. The first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is accusing Kavanaugh of attempting to assault her at a house party in...

    The Federalist ^ | September 24, 2018 | David Harsanyi
    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...

    The Washington Times ^ | September 23, 2018 | Seth McLaughlin
    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...

    When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. In this video, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, illuminates the life of the mild-mannered 19th Century German whose ideas led to the rise of some of the most brutal dictators in world history.

    Desperation: Last week, Rush Limbaugh noted during his daily radio program that he wouldn’t be surprised if Democrats produced another woman claiming that Judge Brett Kavanaugh, POTUS Trump’s latest Supreme Court pick, sexually abused her decades ago. As usual, Limbaugh was right. On Sunday, The New Yorker‘s Ronan Farrow and Jane Meyer published a ‘bombshell’ story: The woman at the center of the story, Deborah Ramirez, who is fifty-three, attended Yale with Kavanaugh, where she studied sociology and psychology.

    Fox News ^ | September 23, 2018 | Gregg Re
    Sen. Mazie Hirono on Sunday suggested that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's "outcome-driven" conservative judicial philosophy directly undermines the credibility of his denials that he sexually assaulted California professor Christine Ford at a house party more than three decades ago. Speaking to CNN's "State of the Union," Hirono, D-Hawaii, called for an independent FBI investigation of Ford's claims, before explaining why the presumption of innocence and due process should not apply to Kavanaugh's case. "I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases," Hirono told host Jake...

    Lawyer Michael Avenatti told the Senate Judiciary Committee late Sunday that he has multiple witnesses who can say Brett Kavanaugh participated in gang rapes of drunken women during high school. “We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, D.C. area during the early 1980s during which Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them,” Avenatti said in an email to Mike Davis, chief counsel for nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee. Avenatti did not disclose...

    During his upcoming appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats are apparently going to interrogate Brett Kavanaugh about his drinking and partying in his high school years. (snip) Here’s what Hawaii Sen. Maize Hirono said on CNN’s “State of the Union”: “We want to hear — I would be wanting to hear what kind of environment it was in high school,” Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Sunday during an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Apparently, there was a lot of drinking and partying going on,” she continued. “This is why we need an investigation. We need an independent...

    The once silver-tongued Obama is not only losing his voice, he’s losing his rock star status and crowd support Odd, isn’t it, that 100 percent of the women coming forward with sexual assault and harassment stories decades after they supposedly took place are all connected, in one way or another to the Democrats? Take a look out over the horizon and you won’t find even one Republican victim of sexual assault or harassment coming forward during the Midterm Election campaign. Could that be because the #MeToo movement only embraces Democrat Damsels in Distress?

    The woman who accused Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) of emotional and physical abuse is claiming that the Democratic Party "smeared, threatened [and] isolated" her after she went public with the allegations. Karen Monahan's comments come as a growing number of Democrats have expressed support for the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, saying they find her allegations credible. Monahan on Monday tweeted that Democrats have not stood by her. "I've been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party," Monahan tweeted. "I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about...

    The fight for the House majority is over. At least that’s the sense from a growing number of Democrats who are increasingly confident in their quest to seize control of at least one chamber of Congress six weeks before Election Day. The surging optimism among Democrats, usually shared in private, has begun to spill into the open as President Donald Trump’s approval ratings sink and the Republican Party struggles under the weight of the president’s self-imposed political crises and erratic behavior. […] But with the shock of Trump’s 2016 victory still fresh, some Democrats are painfully aware that significant factors...

    Strategery: Late Friday Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley took to Twitter to announce he’d granted Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, another delay after she said, through her lawyer, she would not be ready to testify before his committee by early next week. The delay was hugely disappointing to supporters of Judge Kavanaugh because they a) don’t buy Ford’s 36-year-old allegations given the suspicion and controversies surrounding them; and b) believe that he will make a fine Supreme Court justice for decades to come. It’s not clear why Grassley, R-Iowa, caved again. It’s...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the college professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of groping her at a drunken party in somebody's house near a park sometime in the early 1980s when both were high school students, has been resisting Republican requests for her to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) insists that "the Republican demand that it is the accuser's responsibility to tell her story to them is an attempt to silence her. Christine has already done her part to put the ball in play with her accusation. It is now Kavanaugh's job to...
