    Some people say we’re on the verge of another civil war. I think the Kavanaugh hearings have demonstrated that we’re already there. As nasty as politics gets, what we’ve been witnessing the past few weeks has left me more disenchanted than ever. Democrats are desperately trying to maintain their hold on the judicial branch. Since Donald Trump took office, almost every major policy decision he’s made has been met with court challenges, with radical activist judges taking it upon themselves to thwart Trump’s constitutional authority. Democrats are also still licking their wounds over the inability to get Merrick Garland on...
  • Lindsey Graham: FBI And DOJ Waging ‘Bureaucratic Coup’ Against Trump

    09/23/2018 9:21:54 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 13 replies ^ | 09/23/2018
    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham asserted Sunday that the Department of Justice and FBI are waging a “bureaucratic coup” against President Donald Trump. “During the campaign it’s clear the Department of Justice and the FBI were tipping the scales for [former Secretary of State Hillary] Clinton. This revelation after President Trump was sworn in shows they were trying to undermine the election. There’s a bureaucratic coup going on at the Department of Justice and the FBI and somebody needs to look at it,” Graham said that Rosenstein should not be fired until an investigation is conducted into the matter. But...

    “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace said Sunday that all 10 Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats refused invitations to appear on his show — for the second week in a row — to discuss the allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Wallace spoke to Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham about the ongoing back and forth between the attorneys for Blasey Ford and Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, who most recently claimed he felt like he was “playing 2nd trombone in the judiciary orchestra.”

    Denis Norden was a writer and performer who parlayed an East End boy's love of words and word-play into a seven-decade career. As a writer, he was responsible for the all-time greatest Carry On gag and the makings of a worldwide phenomenon whose latest iteration is playing my nearest multiplex even as I speak. With respect to the former, the interminable Britpic series of cheap'n'cheerful trouser-droppers (second only to 007 in longevity)- Carry On Nurse, Carry On Constable, Carry On Up the Khyber, etc - reached its peak with the moment in Carry On Cleo, when Kenneth Williams as Julius...

    When it comes to denying Brett Kavanaugh justice, Democrats have now gone from the merely hyper-partisan and entered the realm of the utterly Kafkaesque. On today's State of the Union with Jake Tapper, former Michigan governor and Christine Ford defender Jennifer Granholm actually said that the fact that none of the "witnesses" that Ford named have any recollection of the alleged incident, "actually corroborates Ford's story."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Ellison accuser: Dems 'smeared, threatened, isolated' me

    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.

    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

    09/23/2018 8:09:14 AM PDT · by Enterprise · 29 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...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 9/23/18 | USA Features
    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...

    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 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...
  • From Marxism/Communism to Post-Modern Liberal Fascism

    The USSR died an ugly death in the 1990s. Yet, such an ugly political collapse proved to be very opportunistic for many communist leaders throughout the Soviet Union who hated the Marxist ideology that actually placed some restrictions on their behavior. Many of them privatized state companies to themselves and thus became the biggest mafia the world has ever seen. Putin, as a former KGB spymaster, is now in relative control of this mafia in spite of all the clans competing with one another from the Ukrainian Crimea to the Russian Far East. As has been recently demonstrated on a...
