    Graham, R-S.C., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also made clear that Republicans "are not going to turn the hearing over to her lawyers" by allowing them to dictate which witnesses to call, or in what order to call the witnesses. If Ford's lawyer's persist, Graham said, "there won't be a hearing." The South Carolina Republican specifically took an apparent shot at Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who received Ford's allegations in a confidential letter in July through a Northern California congresswoman. Ford only went public last week after news of the letter's existence leaked to the Intercept -- a...

    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...
  • GOP heading for midterm wipeout as Blue Wave scenario gives Democrats 12-point generic ballot lead

    CNBC ^ | 10-22-2018 | John Harwood
    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.

    Okay—so, the Brett Kavanaugh drama is heating up. Christine Blasey Ford has lobbed a grenade at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of a drunken episode in which he attempted to sexually assault her at a party some 30-plus years ago. Kavanaugh was 17-years-old. It’s a serious charge—and it should be dissected before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Give Ms. Ford her day to detail this episode…if she can find the time. The committee and Ford’s lawyers, one of which, Debra Katz, is publicly anti-Trump (she’s and more of an operative) are still trying to hash out the details. Par for the...

    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...
  • Gowdy: Declassified documents unlikely to change anyone's mind on Russia investigation

    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said Sunday that the documents President Trump ordered declassified related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation are unlikely to change anyone's views on the probe. Gowdy said on CBS's "Face the Nation" that "99.9 percent" of the documents Trump ordered declassify are unrelated to the president. "I generally am on the side of transparency, with the caveat do nothing that jeopardizes national security or impacts or relationship with our allies," said Gowdy, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee. "I've seen all of it, and with the exception of one document, I don’t think anybody’s mind...
  • Rosenstein's Fate Could Turn on Which Account Trump Believes

    https://www.newsmax.com ^ | 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...

    Epic Fail: Conservatives were disappointed Saturday to learn that Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, had caved to demands from Christine Blasey Ford for ‘more time’ before she is prepared to testify before the panel regarding her allegations that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago. In agreeing to delay Ford’s testimony, Grassley appeared to be taking the side of one woman with a sketchy claim who appears to have been involved with Democrats in delaying Kavanaugh’s nomination to more than 75 women who have come forward to vouch for the nominee. Now, there...

    Should any member of the Kennedy family be lecturing any other politician about insensitivity to the rape and abuse of females? I’m talking to you, Rep. Joe Kennedy III — JoJoJo — my congressman. On Friday morning, the president tweeted out, re: the Kavanaugh-Ford contretemps: “I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time and place!” To which JoJoJo...

    It has been 17 years since the Islamic jihadists conducted their terrorist attack on America, 11 September, 2001, killing almost 3,000 innocent Americans who were doing nothing more than going to work. What was the ideology that drove these Islamic jihadists to carry out such atrocious acts? Our political and military leadership who have been thoroughly indoctrinated in “political correctness” still remain incapable of identifying the ideology and the enemy. Clearly, the plague of jihadi terrorism has its roots in Islam. However, due to our former president’s obfuscation of the scriptures of Islam found in the Quran and Shariah law,...

Eighteen years ago Michael Rose wrote GOODBYE GOOD MEN describing the recruiting of homosexual men into the priest hood and rejection of conservative heterosexual men. Certainly what he said was true then and continues to unfold. This information was available then and earlier. What happened? So I am puzzled why this information is so hot right now?

    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...

    Trump administration officials announced Saturday that immigrants who legally use public benefits like food assistance and Section 8 housing vouchers could be denied green cards under new rules aimed at keeping out people the administration deems a drain on the country. The move could force millions of poor immigrants who rely on public assistance for food and shelter to make a difficult choice between accepting financial help and seeking a green card to live and work legally in the United States.

    In written testimony sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee, a third named witness has rejected the allegations made by Judge Kavanaugh’s 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.

    While sitting in Yom Kippur services, I was focused on the essence of the holiday -- Jews atoning for their sins. The (10) Days of Awe conclude with Yom Kippur – a joyful beginning to the remainder of the year. Despite that, I, like many Americans, was seething about the charges lodged by Christine Blasey Ford against Brett Kavanaugh that became public a week prior to the Senate committee vote on his Supreme Court nomination. I am a dedicated supporter of women. When I started my political involvement, I was mentored by a woman. Patty Cafferata, from Reno, Nevada, was...
