  • WHATEVER IT TAKES (Classic Coulter)

    The Democrats' current position on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is: We cannot have someone addicted to beer on our highest court! What if a foreign power were to ply him with this nectar in a can? Talk about taking control of our government! Suppose they throw in a case of Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier? A bitter college roommate is going whole hog, wailing, He lied about being a beeraholic. By the media's account, Kavanaugh was a bounder, a brawler and a drunk. And yet he still managed to graduate at the top of his class, go to Yale,...

    (Full headline) tChristine Blasey-Ford Friend In Delaware Was Career FBI Agent Likely Together During Accusation Letter Construct In a letter released last night from a former boyfriend of Christine Blasey-Ford, there was a name curiously not redacted.

In addition to boyfriend noting Ms. Monica L McLean in...
  • Botham Jean's door unlocked, lights were off when Officer Guyger mistook his apartment for hers

    The Dallas police officer who killed 26-year-old Botham Jean in his own apartment got inside because the door wasn’t locked, a law enforcement official said Sunday. Officer Amber Guyger had just ended a 15-hour shift when she parked on the wrong level of the South Side Flats garage— the fourth floor instead of the third, where she lived, according to the official who has direct knowledge of the case but is not authorized to discuss it publicly. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings also said Sunday that Guyger parked on the wrong floor. She went to the door she thought was hers...

    The officer who killed a man in his apartment Thursday after she apparently mistook it for her own home also shot a suspect during an arrest in 2017. Officer Amber Guyger has not been officially named in connection with the shooting, but a source within the Dallas Police Department has identified her. Guyger, who has been with the department almost five years, was not indicted in the 2017 shooting of the suspect who had taken her Taser from her during a struggle. She is expected to face a manslaughter charge for killing 26-year-old Botham Jean on Thursday, but a warrant...

    The opening of the second span of the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge on Saturday was delayed after a piece of its predecessor, the old Tappan Zee Bridge, which is parallel to it, became destabilized and threatened to fall, officials said. The Tappan Zee was being disassembled when the “potentially dangerous situation developed” and a piece of the old bridge became destabilized, Matthew J. Driscoll, the executive director of the New York State Thruway Authority, said in a statement on Saturday. .................. As the Democratic primary in New York on Thursday approaches, Mr. Cuomo’s opponents seized on the problem with the...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | Paul Bedard | September 07, 2018 | Paul Bedard
    Sign up for Washington Secrets Should President Trump need a model to use to track down leakers inside his administration like the “anonymous” insider who challenged his authority in a New York Times op-ed, he need go no further back than the Obama administration that prosecuted leakers and shutout the media. According to reports at the time from even New York Times journalists, no administration was tougher on leakers and punishing to the media than Obama’s, a saga reinforced by reporters who have called Trump’s team more forthcoming. Criticism of Obama’s attacks on the media and leakers did not just...

    Special counsel Robert Mueller will allow President Trump to submit some written answers about whether his campaign colluded with Russia ahead of the 2016 election, according to a report Tuesday. Two people familiar with the matter told the New York Times that Mueller’s office made the concession in a letter to the President’s legal team. Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s top lawyer in the Russia investigation, declined to confirm or deny the existence of such a letter, but acknowledged that “of course we would prefer written answers.”

    The sugary praise, often from former critics, does his memory no favors. The past week has featured so much extravagant praise of John McCain that Jill Abramson, the former editor of the New York Times, had to admit “McCain would cringe over some of the glowing tributes pouring in.” Take this example from The New Yorker: In death, McCain had finally become one with the country that was the object of his deepest faith, and any praise lavished on him, during the funeral proceedings or at any point afterward, would redound to the greater glory of America. Yes, of course,...

    The Manhattan district attorney’s office is considering pursuing criminal charges against the Trump Organization and two senior company officials in connection with Michael D. Cohen’s hush money payment to an adult film actress, according to two officials with knowledge of the matter. A state investigation would center on how the company accounted for its reimbursement to Mr. Cohen for the $130,000 he paid to the actress, Stephanie Clifford, who has said she had an affair with President Trump, the officials said. Both officials stressed that the office’s review of the matter is in its earliest stages and prosecutors have not...

    CNN ^ | 08/21/2018 | By Laura Jarrett and Maeve Reston,
    Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife, Margaret, were indicted Tuesday on charges related to the misuse of $250,000 worth of campaign funds for personal expenses and the filing of false campaign finance records. The charges of wire fraud, falsifying records, campaign finance violations and conspiracy were the culmination of a Department of Justice investigation that has stretched for more than a year, during which the Republican congressman from California has maintained his innocence. Republican Party leaders had long worried that with a potential indictment looming, Hunter's traditionally safe district which makes up much of eastern San Diego County could be...

Just after 1 a.m. Sunday morning, he called for an Uber...

    08/06/2018 1:45:26 PM PDT · by CaptainK · 46 replies ^ | 08/06/2018 | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    4:21 p.m. Paul Manafort's longtime deputy has been called to the witness stand to testify against the former Trump campaign chairman. Rick Gates has been regarded as a crucial government witness ever since he pleaded guilty last year and agreed to cooperate in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Prosecutors will turn to Gates for first-hand support of their accusations that Manafort concealed millions of dollars in foreign income and later lied when he applied for bank loans. Manafort's defense has sought to blame Gates for any illegal conduct and accused him of embezzling millions of dollars. Gates and Manafort worked...
