    2017 FBI report Maine: 121 incidents of violent crime per 100,000 residents. Vermont: 165.8 incidents per 100,000. New Hampshire: 198.7 incidents per 100,000 New Hampshire is once again in an enviable spot following the release of the FBI’s latest crime rate data. The Granite State had the third-lowest rate of violent crime in 2017 — 198.7 incidents per 100,000 residents — trailing only Vermont (165.8) and Maine (121). Violent crime was down slightly nationwide, and it was the second year in a row that New Hampshire’s rate decreased... That disparity has long been the case — without any clear explanation...

    WASHINGTON - Republican senators have selected Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the woman who has accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, a top senator announced Tuesday.

A registered Republican, Mitchell has worked for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office for 26 years.

    Hundreds of teens identified as Somalis rampaged through the Valley Fair Amusement Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. It was the first night of the ValleyScare activities. Police said, “The number of individuals running throughout the park increased substantially and was difficult to control.” They had to shut the park down early as the numbers of teens in the mob grew to hundreds. People described them fighting, terrorizing children, pushing children, knocking over Halloween props. One victim said the media doesn’t want this out because three Muslims are running for office.

    The Democrats are demanding there be an FBI investigation. Funny, Joe Biden in 1991 tells us why an FBI investigation is pointless. "The reason why we cannot rely on the FBI report [is] you would not like it if we did because it is inconclusive. They say, 'He said, she said, and they said. Period."

    A Houston-area man is now suspected of killing three people and seriously injuring four others in a series of brutal assaults in Los Angeles and Santa Monica that caused widespread panic in the region’s sprawling homeless community, authorities said Tuesday. Investigators believe Ramon Escobar, 47, savagely beat three homeless men with a baseball bat while they slept on the street in downtown Los Angeles on Sept. 16, Capt. Billy Hayes of the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division said at a downtown news conference. Two of those men have since died, and a third remains in critical condition. Four days later, police said,...

    Facebook has decided to censor evidence that CNN producer Scott Bronstein is cold-calling Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s former classmates in a bid to dig up dirt on the President Trump pick. Mark Zuckerberg’s platform has also decided to ban the user who posted the audio. “This is what happens when you post an actual recording of a CNN producer’s dirty journalism on Facebook. #banned So wrong!,” tweeted Amy Dryden, who posted the Bronstein clip on Facebook after a friend sent it to her. Dryden also made clear that the number Bronstein provided on the audiotape was not Bronstein’s personal...

    Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers have asked senators to limit the press who will be allowed in the room to cover Thursday’s hearing with her and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and sought to dictate at least some of the outlets.Coverage is one of a number of issues Ms. Blasey Ford’s lawyers are negotiating with Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.Michael Bromwich said in emails sent Tuesday afternoon that he was requesting access for three “robocams,” three specific wire services, photographers from the Associated Press, Reuters and one unspecified service, and a pool reporter for newspapers and magazines.

    Powerline ^ | September25,2018 | JOHN HINDERAKER
    Why might Ms. Ford want to dodge a Committee appearance? Grassley’s admonition with regard to the criminal penalties for lying to Congress apply to Ford as much as to Ramirez, and, while there is probably zero chance of Ford facing criminal prosecution–however much she may deserve it–lying under oath is uncomfortable for most people. I think it is entirely possible that Ford may not appear on Thursday, in which case the Democrats’ delaying tactics will collapse and Kavanaugh will speedily be confirmed. Alternatively, if Ford does show up, she will face cross-examination by an actual lawyer, which could have the...

    Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have brought in "an experienced sex-crimes prosecutor" to handle questioning on Thursday, but declined to identify her. Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans said Tuesday that they had hired an outside counsel to question Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexually assaulting her, at the committee's hearing on Thursday — though they would not reveal the lawyer's identity, drawing criticism from Democrats and women's advocates. In a letter to a lawyer for Ford on Monday, Mike Davis, who handles nominations for Republicans on the committee — all of...

    Nghia Hoang Pho, 68, of Ellicott City, Maryland, had pleaded guilty to willful retention of national defense information. At his sentencing in federal court in downtown Baltimore, Pho explained that he took copies of U.S. government documents and writings containing national defense information so he could work from home and boost his resume. He told the judge he was trying to earn a promotion. “I do not betray U.S.A. I do not betray this country,” Pho, who was born in Vietnam and is a naturalized U.S. citizen, said in unsteady English before sentencing. Regardless of his motivation, federal authorities asserted...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a Friday morning vote on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, according to a committee notice. The vote on Kavanaugh is slated to come just one day after he is scheduled to testify in front of the panel on allegations of sexual misconduct. One of the two women who has come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of misconduct, Christine Blasey Ford, is also scheduled to testify on Thursday. “As a procedural matter, the Judiciary Committee today noticed a potential executive business meeting for Friday, September 28 at 9:30 a.m,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's...

    What’s happening to Judge Brett Kavanaugh — who, for the record, I do not know — recalls the confirmation battle over now-Third Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Brooks Smith in 2001-2002. And as I discovered, the confirmation process itself has been corrupted by Senate Democrats and their special interest allies. As a young Reagan political aide — and a non-lawyer — I wound up working on five Reagan Supreme Court nominations. That would be Rehnquist for Chief Justice, Scalia, Bork, Douglas Ginsburg, and Anthony Kennedy for Associate Justice. In 2001, well out of government, I received a phone call...

    If not Judge Kavanaugh, then who? This is the question Republicans should ask themselves as they prepare for Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. If this decent human being, with an exemplary record as husband, father, friend, and judge can be smeared and maligned, who is going to be capable of surviving the left’s ruthless dishonesty and willingness to lie, intimidate, and destroy? If the left can succeed in vilifying someone with Judge Kavanaugh’s integrity and record, they will be in a position to say to President Trump, “nominate a moderate who is acceptable to us or we will smear your...

    Bill Cosby’s PR team put on a brave face Tuesday after the once-beloved comedian was sentenced to three to 10 years in Pennsylvania state prison. “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened,” publicist Andrew Wyatt told reporters outside the courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, after Cosby was taken into custody following his April conviction for three counts of aggravated sexual assault. “Not saying Mr. Cosby is Jesus,” Wyatt quickly clarified. “But we know what this country has done to black men for centuries. So Mr. Cosby is doing fine. He’s holding up well and everybody that wants to say anything negative,...
