    Brett Kavanaugh is a casualty of an anything-goes political resistance. Consider the spectacle: Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, the embodiment of a modern rule of law, is being decided in the Senate by the medieval practice of trial by ordeal, such as surviving immersion in fire or ice. Trial by ordeal was outlawed by the Lateran Council in 1215. Or worse, the standards of the mob in the Roman Colosseum, turning thumbs up or down on the combatants. Though unlike the Senate Democrats, the Roman mob at least had an open mind. Incidentally, the standard trope that...

    If Senate Democrats sweep into power in November, they will likely probe the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a Democrat in the chamber. "I am confident of that, and I think we'll also be investigating why the FBI stood down its background investigation when this came up in this particular background," said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Thursday during a interview with CNN. He also acknowledged that such an effort would happen even if Kavanaugh has already been appointed to the court.

    The direction that America is heading in is dangerous. Eventually, one way or the other, there will be some sort of cultural “reset”, that will affect American society. As such, I cannot predict the future. However, it does seem like one side or the other will eventually obtain power. And, make no mistake on this, when this happens, there will be conflict. There absolutely will be strife. As we all know that in the past, there has always been conflicts during societal resets. I don’t know which side will wrest control of American society. The Socialist Progressives have already armed...

    The American socialist politicians are promising their voting constituents through such figures as Barney Sanders, the politician from Vermont whose economic fortunes have improved drastically since he ran for president, and the socialist Cortez from the Bronx who, although she has a degree from a prestigious and very expensive school, does not know anything about Economics or geopolitics, by her own admission, and shows her lack of knowledge every time she opens her mouth. But her ignorance does not stop her equally ignorant followers to support her generous promise of free rewards: health care, higher education, child care, and housing....

    With yet another drive by Democrats to smear someone over alleged sexual impropriety, we have to ask, isn’t it time to put Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, and the Democrat Party on trial, as well? There was Clarence Thomas v. Anita Hill, Roy Moore v. some teenage girls, and now it’s Brett Kavanaugh v. Christine Blasey Ford who claims Kavanaugh abused her more than 35 years ago when they were teenagers. The thing of it is, except maybe in the Moore case, it’s one person’s word against another. Then there’s the great length of time between the alleged incidents and today....

    If this is what the left pulls against a sweet nerd like Brett Kavanaugh, I can't wait for the hearings to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg! Observers of the passing scene were not surprised that the same lunatics screaming that Kavanaugh is going to impose "The Handmaid's Tale" on America also announced that he had committed attempted rape and murder in high school. His accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, remembered this in a therapy session 30-plus years after the alleged incident -- coincidentally, at the exact moment Kavanaugh was all over the news as Mitt Romney's likely Supreme Court nominee. She doesn't...

    President Trump on Tuesday night said he hopes voters are paying attention to the Democratic "playbook" amid the tumultuous nomination process for his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which has recently been plagued by sexual assault allegations. "The Supreme Court is one of the main reasons I got elected President. I hope Republican Voters, and others, are watching, and studying, the Democrats Playbook," Trump tweeted.Senate Republicans have been determined to get Kavanaugh confirmed before the November midterm elections, where Democrats are hoping to ride out a "blue wave" and retake both chambers of Congress. But Kavanaugh's confirmation, which until recently...

    If this piece is going to have any impact, it cannot be viewed through partisan eyes – conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat. Preconceived political prejudice and implacable attitudes must be cast aside. For the moment, we must view the political system, as just that, a political system without the personalities and policies we loath or the blind loyalty we show for one side and the blind hatred that we feel for the other. What I will attempt to say in the next few paragraphs are the very deep and profound feelings of my heart, fostered by my abiding love...
  • Senator Mazie Hirono Wants Men to ‘Just Shut Up’

    JUST SHUT UP!!!....wow. As the attacks on the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford continue, and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly denies the allegations made against him, lawmakers are speaking out. Senator Mazie Hirono, for one, did not mince words. She held men — especially those in government — responsible for the harrowing experience of coming forward with allegations against a powerful man. “Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country,” she said at a press conference. “I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step...

    Today’s Wall Street Journal has published an editorial on (the Kavanaugh ambush). I detect Kim Strassel’s hand in the editorial. The Journal condemns the charade staged by Senate Democrats starring Christine Blaesy Ford: [Ford’s] is simply too distant and uncorroborated a story to warrant a new hearing or to delay a vote. We’ve heard from all three principals, and there are no other witnesses to call. The only purpose of another public hearing would be a political spectacle in which Democrats could wax indignant for the cameras while Mr. Kavanaugh repeated his denials. The timing and details of how Ms....

    On top of her McCarthyite smear of Judge Kavanaugh, she’s closely tied to both Chinese and Russian operations in the United States. To date, only one fairly obscure member of Congress has asked our intel people—in this case, the FBI--to look into the alarming case of a Chinese agent becoming her office manager and personal chauffeur. An excerpt from Rep. Jim Banks’ letter to FBI Director Wray: It has recently come to light that U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the former chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, employed a staff member who was using his position to secretly report...

  • WikiLeaks Says it will Bring Hillary Clinton Down by October 21

    President Donald Trump has one campaign yet to fulfill and WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange is vowing to see that one fulfilled sooner rather later. In his words – “If Trump doesn’t take Clinton down, we will.” For almost two years, Clinton and the Deep State have been hell-bent on drumming up a ‘Trump/Russia’ collusion story that has yet to produce anything beyond made-up stories and ‘anonymous’ insiders. It seems Assange realizes time is running out for him in exile and he needs to do something to do that has evaded the President.

    President Trump on Friday pushed back against one his longtime lawyer’s criticisms of his behavior while claiming that the lawyer's upcoming book violates attorney-client privilege. Trump asserted in a phone interview with The Wall Street Journal that his former lawyer Jay Goldberg is bitter over not being hired to a position in the White House. “I’ve had nothing but victories, so it’s sad that somebody you can’t take to Washington for obvious reasons wants to write a book,” Trump said, citing economic gains and a bolstered military. Goldberg represented Trump in his two divorce cases and is releasing a memoir...

    Yes, one House committee is finally stepping onto the field in the one-sided battle against judicial tyranny. After years of endless legislative fiat from single district and circuit judges, the House Judiciary Committee is voting this week on a bill that clarifies once and for all that courts do not have the power to issue injunctions against abstract policies and statutes outside the parties before that particular court. Now the only question is whether the Republicans will unite behind a cogent message of keeping legislation within the legislature and place this provision in the budget bill or at least bring...

    The surest sign that Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court is that opposition to his nomination has devolved into a farce. Even the deepest-pocketed dark-money source for the Republicans couldn’t have cooked up the plan deployed against Kavanaugh. Opponents of Kavanaugh lost the fight when they lost their marbles. His foes on the Senate Judiciary Committee and allied activists ensured that opponents to the nomination appear to be a pack of wild cranks. Mainstream Americans unfamiliar with the ways of Washington witnessed loud activists screaming over the gentle opening remarks of Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). Grassley’s...

    A Judas goat is a trained goat used in general animal herding. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Dianne Feinstein is a Judas goat. She, like Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Richard Blumenthal, to name just a few, are leading the Democratic Party over a cliff to its certain end among all civilized people. While there is a percentage of the left that strongly approves, in fact encourages the kind of despicable behavior we saw at the Kavanaugh hearings, people who are invigorated by groups like Occupy Wall Street, Black...
