    Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D) said late Tuesday that he believes his Republican opponent, former Rep. Ron DeSantis (Fla.), has given “too much harbor to racists and xenophobes and anti-Semites.” “He’s spoken at conferences with them,” Gillum, the mayor of Tallahassee, said when questioned by “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah about his opponent being dogged by allegations of racism. “He authored a book justifying slavery,” Gillum added, apparently referring to DeSantis's 2011 book, “Dreams From Our Founding Fathers: First Principles in the Age of Obama.”
  • NBC’s Kate Snow: Here’s why we didn’t publish that story on Avenatti’s 2nd witness until now

    NBC’s Kate Snow put up a tweetstorm Saturday explaining why NBC belatedly published a piece Thursday revealing that a 2nd witness provided by Michael Avenatti to back up Swetnick’s account directly contradicted claims Avenatti made on her behalf. Snow claims she and NBC hadn’t finished vetting the article about this 2nd witness until the Kavanaugh confirmation was over and so decided to drop it as old news. That supposedly changed this week, when Sen. Chuck Grassley referred Avenatti and Swetnick to the DOJ for investigation. That referral, Snow claims, suddenly made the story newsworthy again.

    For more than two decades, I traveled the country facilitating rape and assault prevention lectures, seminars, and workshops for women of all ages. I was passionate about this work, committed to the cause, and believed wholeheartedly that what I was doing was a wholly virtuous endeavor. I considered myself a feminist. But that was then, and this is now.All these years I silently stood by and watched third-wave feminism (with assistance from the radical left) methodically take a sledgehammer to Western society as a whole, and males in particular. Foolishly, I hoped things would eventually turn around, only to see...

    After reaching an agreement with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Az) to a one-week FBI effort to corroborate the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford alleging that somewhere at some time during her teen years a teen-aged Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, Senate Democrats rejected the findings. Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Diane Feinstein (D-Calif) called the FBI probe "incomplete. All they did was confirm that the witnesses named by Dr. Ford could not corroborate her story. They did not interview the hundreds of Kavanaugh's high school and college classmates who may have known something of events that might or...

    The lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford said Wednesday that they will only turn over documents requested by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, to the FBI in an interview with the bureau — though an interview has still not yet been scheduled and time is running short. In a letter to the Iowa Republican, Ford’s lawyers Debra Katz and Lisa Banks say that they are “prepared” to give the documents “to the FBI when she interviewed.” “We have not yet heard from the FBI about scheduling an interview with her,” they wrote.

    One question I have pondered over the last few weeks is, why are the Democrats so determined to block Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court? Realistically, he is the most moderate nominee they are likely to see from the Trump administration. If his nomination fails, the president will most likely appoint Amy Barrett, who is secure against #MeToo allegations and is both more conservative and younger than Kavanaugh. So what is the point? To some extent, the Democrats’ bizarre smear campaign against Kavanaugh is explicable on short-term political grounds. The Democrats’ crazed base demands that they #Resist, so...

    Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., used Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s emotional defense of himself against allegations of sexual misconduct to question how the judge acts when drinking. “If Brett Kavanaugh can be this angry on national TV, imagine what he's like when he gets inebriated,” the lawmaker tweeted during Kavanaugh’s opening remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

    Avenatti, however, told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that he’s “seriously considering” filing charges against Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge. He’s also seriously considering a run for president in 2020, so Kavanaugh’s scalp would be a hit at campaign rallies.

    “I remember being on the street and feeling an enormous sense of relief that I had escaped from the house and that Brett and Mark were not coming after me,” she said, admitting to only drinking one beer while at the party. “Brett’s assault on me drastically altered my life,” she added. . . . She said she is terrified to testify, but felt it was her civic duty to come forward and tell her story once she discovered Judge Kavanaugh could be confirmed to the Supreme Court without senators being aware of his past.

    Democratic Sen. Dick Blumenthal of Connecticut said Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would be “untruthful” if he fails “to acknowledge at least some” of the sexual assault allegations made against him by Christine Blasey Ford at Thursday’s hearing. . . “These allegations are made under oath by a woman, a survivor, who would lose her livelihood if she is incorrect, and … has presented corroborating witnesses,” he continued.

    Though he's yet to be afforded an opportunity to present a defense before the American people, many Democrats have already tried and convicted Judge Brett Kavanaugh on charges of sexual assault. Christine Blasey Ford is accusing Brett Kavanaugh of forcing himself on her at 1982 party somewhere in Montgomery County, Md. Kavanaugh has released statements denying the allegation. Neither party has yet to provide full testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. No matter. Kavanaugh, many Democrats say, is clearly guilty. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Thursday: "I believe her because she is telling the truth and you know it by...

    The New York Times' headline read: "Nikki Haley's View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701." The headline clearly implied that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Haley was a profligate elitist Republican unconcerned about spending taxpayer money. As a result, the reaction was swift and strong. Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., tweeted: "This is not okay. As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I call on @HouseForeign Chairman @RepEdRoyce to hold an oversight hearing on @StateDept spending on @nikkihaley and her deputy." David Hogg, a student gun control advocate, tweeted: "Dear Nikki Haley, There are starving children...
  • WHY CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD’S HS YEARBOOK SCRUBBED: Faculty Approved Racism, Drinking & Promiscuity

    WHY CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD’S HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOKS WERE SCRUBBED: Faculty Approved Racism, Binge Drinking and Promiscuity On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them. Why did I know they would be scrubbed? Because if roles were reversed, and Christine Blasey Ford had been nominated for the Supreme Court by President Trump, the headline by the resistance would be this: CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD AND THE DRUNKEN WHITE PRIVILEGED RACIST PLAYGIRLS OF HOLTON-ARMS. And it would be an accurate headline. That’s why...

    A nation gawks as Washington sinks deeper into the muck, but put aside your disgust long enough to digest what we’re seeing. Three big things are on display. First, Democrats are proving again that their force multiplier is a win-or-die zealotry. They were on a mission to kill anybody President Trump chose to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and, within minutes of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced he would fight Kavanaugh “with everything I have.” All 10 Dems on the Judiciary Committee pledged to vote no. They looked silly given the nominee’s impeccable credentials,...

    The Democrats had a problem. A young conservative judge seems headed for confirmation to the Supreme Court, and nothing they did was working. Not the screaming women who had be to evicted periodically from the hearings while shouting obscenities; not the thousands of people who called Susan Collins, told her to f--k herself, and said that they hoped that someone would rape her and her assistants; not the complaints of Gloria Steinem, who tied global warming to a dearth of abortions; not the assurance of the famed Biblical scholar Chelsea Clinton that Christianity was really about supporting abortion. And don’t...

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has hired an attorney amid fresh allegations of sexual misconduct while he was in high school, according to CNN. Citing multiple sources, CNN reported that Kavanaugh has hired Beth Wilkinson, a founding partner of Wilkinson Walsh + Eskovitz, a trial and litigation law firm in Washington, D.C. Wilkinson represents clients before the Department of Justice, Congress and other government agencies, according to her bio page. Kavanaugh said Monday that he is willing to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee against Christine Blasey Ford, the woman bringing the allegation forward. Wilkinson did not immediately...

    Martha G. Kavanaugh, the mother of Brett Kavanaugh was a Maryland district judge in 1996. In an amazing coincidence, Martha Kavanaugh was the judge in a foreclosure case in which Christine Blasey-Ford’s parents were the defendants. Now it all becomes clear. Blasey-Ford is going after Brett Kavanaugh, not because of what he did in high school. Instead, Christine Blasey-Ford is going after Brett Kavanaugh out of spite and revenge for a case rulled on by Brett Kavanaugh mother. Martha Kavanaugh, Brett’s mother was Montgomery County Circuit Court judge from 1993 until she retired in 2001. During a 1996 foreclosure case,...
