    Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., used his opening remarks at a Thursday debate for South Carolina's 5th Congressional District to make an off-color joke about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. "Did y’all hear the latest, late-breaking news from the Kavanaugh hearings? Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out [saying[ that she was groped by Abraham Lincoln," he said to some laughs and applause. Norman, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump, later defended his remarks on Twitter, saying they were "meant to add a bit of levity to a very serious debate between me and my Democrat opponent and to point...

    Washington Times ^ | 9/19/2018 | Cheryl K. Chumley
    Look at what’s going on with Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings for the Supreme Court, and the fingerprints of George Soros are all over it. First there was a report from June in the Daily Caller that found “a new political advocacy group that vowed to put $5 million behind an effort to stop … Kavanaugh’s confirmation has significant ties to the liberal financier” Soros. What are those ties? The group, Demand Justice, established in 2018, gets its money from the Sixteen Thirty Fund — and the Sixteen Thirty Fund received roughly $2.2 million from the Open Society Policy Center,...

    So Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser has finally come forward: In a Washington Post piece, 51-year-old research psychologist Christine Blasey Ford says that she was sexually assaulted by the Supreme Court nominee in high school back sometime during the early 1980s. ...snip... This led to a predictable backlash on social media. It also led to a predictable phrase that appeared in a lot of tweets by prominent liberals. See if you can notice — and figure out why NeverTrumper conservative pundit Erick Erickson thinks this was the work of a PR firm.
  • Socialist Leaders Clarify: ‘We Only Want Socialism For Everyone Else’-SATIRE?

    The Babylon Bee ^ | 9/17/18 | Staff
    U.S.—Many people seem confused by socialist leaders, who are often well-off, amassing wealth and luxuries for themselves while complaining about the excesses of capitalism, but those socialists have clarified that they never intended socialism for themselves, just for everyone else. “I’m doing pretty well for myself and don’t need socialism,” Bernie Sanders, who is a member of the one percent and owns multiple houses, explained. “Other people aren’t doing so well, and we should redistribute their wealth amongst each other, but I’m fine as I am.” This was reiterated by multi-millionaire Jim Carrey. While the salary he gets paid could...

    Beloit College ^ | 09-09-2018 | Staff
    The Department of Critical Identity Studies seeks to develop students’ understanding of how social identities—like race, gender, sexuality, class, dis/ability, nation, non/religiosity—have formed historically, along with the ways those identities play out in the complex and multicultural worlds in which we now live—and this includes the College's campus! Combining a variety of academic disciplines (gender and women’s studies, ethnic studies, queer studies, disability studies, postcolonial studies), Critical Identity Studies (CRIS) investigates the ways identities are shaped within structures of inequality and through systems and practices of power and resistance. From the introductory course, “Sex and Power,” to the advanced theoretical...

Over the summer Harvard College “worked with House building managers to install a [menstrual product] dispenser in each upperclassman House and freshman yard that will provide tampons and pads,” The Harvard Crimson reports.

    I Love My Freedom.org ^ | September 12, 2018 | Chris Donaldson
    In a school shooting incident that you absolutely won’t hear about on CNN, a leftist professor decided that it would be a good idea to express his anger toward President Trump by shooting himself in a campus restroom. With the nation’s colleges now having been completely taken over by radicals who are able to brainwash receptive young minds with their hatred of capitalism and promotion of cultural Marxism, institutions of higher learning now serve as incubators for the raging anti-Americanism that has manifested itself on the socialist left. One of those “educators” apparently just had too much and in what...

    JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s Jamie Dimon picked a fight with President Donald Trump -- and immediately regretted it. “I think I could beat Trump” in an election, the Wall Street executive said at an event Wednesday morning that was supposed to celebrate his firm’s philanthropy. “I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is.” By noon, the bank sent out a statement from its chairman and chief executive officer backtracking completely: “I should not have said it. I’m not running for president. Proves I wouldn’t make a good politician. I get frustrated because I want all sides to...

    The Hill ^ | 09/11/18 10:28 PM EDT | John Bowden
    Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) on Tuesday night released documents appearing to show the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) diverted nearly $10 million from the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The documents, first reported by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, detail the agency’s funding redirections for fiscal 2018 and show that millions of dollars were diverted to ICE from several agencies. Those diverted funds, totaling $33.1 million, “will provide funding in support of higher priority detention and removal requirements than those for which originally appropriated,” according to the documents. According to MSNBC, Merkley believes the transfer from...

    """Trump Admin Releases Rule We’ve Been Waiting Years For: Obama’s Catch-and-Release Loophole Finally Closing""" Donald Trump is president because of his immigration platform. There are other reasons but there’s no doubt that immigration was the issue that he was strongest on. Republicans and rational Democrats believe in securing our border, enforcing our laws, and protecting the American worker. Those aren’t radical ideas. 10-20 years ago we all believed that pretty much. Sadly, liberals have become more and more radical on the issue and it’s gotten to a point where open borders, ignoring the law, and eliminating the agency that’s in...

    During questioning today by pro-abortion Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono, Judge Brett Kavanaugh defended his decision in a key case ruling against the Obama HHS mandate that forced Hobby Lobby, Little Sisters of the Poor and other Christian-run businesses and organizations to fund abortion drugs in their employee health care plans. Priests for Life, a pro-life organization, was one of many that filed suit against the mandate and Kavanaugh ultimately sided with Priests for Life in its case against the HHS abortion mandate.The appeals court judge indicated the mandate was a substantial burden against the pro-life group’s religious views because it...

    “We’re doing a great job,” said President Trump yesterday in a surprise endorsement of his own success. “The poll numbers are through the roof. Our poll numbers are great. And guess what? Nobody is going to come close to beating me in 2020 because of what we’ve done.” Though Trump can always be counted on to testify to his unblemished record of winning, it was odd he chose to focus on poll numbers right at the moment, because one place they are not going is “through the roof.” In fact, Trump’s numbers are dropping to near the lowest point of...
