  • Ronan Farrow’s Kavanaugh story causes media meltdown

    09/24/2018 6:28:13 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 9 replies
    New Yorker writers Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer pushed back Monday against the New York Times’ coverage of the latest sexual-misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. ** The paper said it interviewed “several dozen people” in a vain attempt to find someone with “firsthand knowledge” to corroborate Ramirez’s allegations. The Times also said Ramirez contacted former classmates to see if they remembered the alleged incident — and told some she wasn’t sure it was Kavanaugh who exposed himself. But in a Twitter post Monday, Farrow said it was “not accurate” for a Washington Post columnist to have tweeted...

    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.

    Rasmussen ^ | September 24, 2018 | Rasmussen
    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.

    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...

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) says she doesn’t believe Brett Kavanaugh will overturn a landmark abortion ruling if he’s confirmed to the Supreme Court. "Well first of all I do not believe he's going to repeal Roe v. Wade," Collins told Showtime’s "The Circus," when asked about how she could potentially be "the vote" that puts Kavanaugh on the court and leads to the landmark 1973 case being repealed.

    The views expressed by contributors are their own and not the view of The Hill Several months ago, the very night the Stormy Daniels story broke, I appeared on Don Lemon’s show on CNN. The producer told the guests a few minutes before we went on air that Lemon wanted our reaction to the Daniels allegations. The first guest said something trite about how “she may be doing this to call attention to herself, but we have to treat these charges against Trump very seriously.” Next, Lemon turned to me for my reaction. I really had no opinion about this...

    The Russian Communist Party has announced it will form a coalition government with the nationalist Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) in three regions where Kremlin-backed candidates suffered rare gubernatorial election defeats over the past week. Incumbents from the ruling party in the Far East Khabarovsk region and central Russia’s Vladimir region lost gubernatorial runoffs to LDPR on Sunday. Candidates from the Communist Party and A Just Russia will compete for the governor’s seat in the Siberian republic of Khakasia on Oct. 7 after its governor’s withdrawal from the race. “We will now form a coalition government in Khabarovsk, Vladimir and Khakasia,”...

    The Hill ^ | September 24, 2018 | Jordain Carney
    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. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination—if allowed to succeed—will dissuade competent...

    The novel The Godfather tells the story of a Mafia don or boss, Vito Corleone, and how he runs "the business."  One of the most famous lines from the movie is the Godfather explaining how he'll prevail, how he'll get what he asks for: "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.” One such offer is made to a big band leader who won't release Vito's godson from a contract: $10,000 to sign the release.  When the offer's refused, Vito goes back to the band leader with his enforcer, Luca Brasi.  Luca holds a gun to the man's head, and Vito explains that...

    It’s time for the Republicans on the committee to make some hard decisions and the clock is ticking. Ford’s story is looking worse by the day – something I’ll have more on here a little later this morning – and this one comes off like a steaming pile. The Democrats have already declared that this is the hill they are willing to die on. Keeping Kavanaugh from taking a seat on the Supreme Court is their purpose in life right now and the rules are clearly out the window. It’s probably time to pull the trigger and let the chips...

    TPM ^ | Sept 23, 2018 | By Matt Shuham
    A spokesperson for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) asserted that some of the remaining conditions to be determined for Thursday’s hearing are “non-negotiable.” Lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford announced earlier Sunday that she was committed to appearing in an open hearing of the committee to testify about her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But the statement from Blasey Ford’s team noted committee Republicans’ refusal to invite other alleged witnesses of the assault to give testimony, and said it was “unresolved” whether “senators or staff attorneys” for the majority would be asking questions at...

    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...

    Unraveling: Following reports Monday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to meet with POTUS Donald Trump on Thursday, likely tied to allegations he schemed to oust the commander-in-chief, fired Deep State liar and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared to hit the panic button. And why? Over the bogus probe regarding special counsel Robert Mueller. In a statement, McCabe — who was fired earlier this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for lying on multiple occasions to investigators — expressed concern that Mueller’s probe could go away (as it should) if caretaker Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, is...

    At 1 p.m. on Monday, supporters of the women who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault walked out of their homes and workplaces. The national walkout was promoted partially in response to the backlash these and other women face when going public with stories of sexual assault and rape. The anti-sexual-harassment organization Times Up tweeted on Sunday that “WOMEN MUST BE HEARD” in a “MOMENT OF SOLIDARITY” with Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. It urged people to wear black and leave wherever they are in protest, using the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors on social media. In...
