    Washington Examiner ^ | Sept. 24, 2018
    The chief of police in Montgomery County, Md., says his officers are not looking into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, appearing to contradict a local news report that "investigators" were looking at a potential second high school misconduct allegation. "I have spoken with my chief of detectives, and neither of us have any knowledge of anyone coming forward to us to report any allegations involving Judge Kavanaugh," police Chief J. Thomas Manger told the Washington Examiner in an email. The Montgomery County Sentinel reported Monday that "Montgomery County investigators" were "looking at" a " potential second...

    NY Post ^ | September 22, 2018 | John Aidan Byrne
    Ten years ago, it was too-easy credit that brought financial markets to their knees. Today, it could be a global debt of $247 trillion that causes the next crash. After a decade of escalating US household debt brought on by low wages and the national debt more than doubling over the same time frame, to $21 trillion, debt could soon put the brakes on this economic recovery, analysts warn. We think the major economies are on the cusp of this turning into the worst recession we have seen in 10 years, said Murray Gunn, head of global research at Elliott...

    Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) So its not the Clarence Thomas playbook after all, its the Roy Moore playbook. The Campaign Update was wrong 10 days ago when it noted that the Democrats were going to give Brett Kavanaugh the Clarence Thomas treatment, and mount another high-tech lynching to gin up their demented voter base. Instead, as Sundays events clearly demonstrate, its the Roy Moore treatment instead. Which makes sense when you think about it: The Democrat effort to kill the Clarence Thomas nomination by bringing forward a single accuser spinning tall tales was an abject...

    Now with bogus claim number two against Judge Kavanaugh, Republicans are busy taking notes about using the Democrats Dirty Play Handbook. At some point in the future Democrats will be in charge (God forbid!) and will bring forward their leftists nominees for important appointments. Republicans will have fun finding women or men to come forward with some bizarre accusation that will delay, or end, the appointment. Won't it be fun! Two can play the game!

    Voter support for Brett Kavanaughs confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court is down in the wake of Christine Fords assault allegations, as more believe her than him. Currently, 40 percent of voters would confirm Kavanaugh, while 50 percent oppose him, according to a Fox News poll. Last month, views split 45-46 percent (August 19-21)...White voters divide by education: those with a college degree believe Ford by a 14-point margin, while those without a degree side with Kavanaugh by 17...The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,003 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted...

    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.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee has reportedly reached a tentative agreement for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, to testify next week. The deal, struck hours after Ford's lawyer responded to an early afternoon deadline saying that she would testify before the panel, would have her testify on Thursday, according to multiple reports. The person briefed on talks between the Judiciary Committee and Ford's lawyers told the AP that talks would continue into Sunday. Tweet: Nicholas Fanos: NEW: Per multiple sources familiar, lawyers for Blasey Ford, Grassley and Feinstein have tentatively agreed to...

    Attorneys for Ford and aides to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley are said to have reached a tentative agreement for the professor to testify Thursday during a brief phone call on Saturday and plan to speak again Sunday to flesh out additional details of her testimony. Members of Sen. Dianne Feinsteins (D-CA) staff were also a part of Saturdays negotiations. Negotiations could still falter over those details, which include who will question the woman, Christine Blasey Ford. But in tentatively agreeing to a Thursday hearing, Republicans made a significant concession that suggested they were working to ensure that the session...

    The fight for the House majority is over. At least thats the sense from a growing number of Democrats who are increasingly confident in their quest to seize control of at least one chamber of Congress six weeks before Election Day. The surging optimism among Democrats, usually shared in private, has begun to spill into the open as President Donald Trumps approval ratings sink and the Republican Party struggles under the weight of the presidents self-imposed political crises and erratic behavior. [] But with the shock of Trumps 2016 victory still fresh, some Democrats are painfully aware that significant factors...

    The Cook Political Report ^ | September 21, 2018 | Jennifer E. Duffy
    As the political environment continues to favor Democrats and likely to rob Republicans of their majority in the U.S. House and a handful of gubernatorial seats, the conventional wisdom is that the fate of the GOPs Senate majority will rest more on political geography than the way the partisan winds are blowing. Maybe. The map continues to favor Republicans as Democrats are defending 10 seats in states that President Trump carried, four of which are in the Toss Up column, while two others are in Lean Democratic. In keeping with the notion that geography is destiny this cycle, the one...

    The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Man, what a week this was. The circus in Washington, DC reached an even higher fever-pitch than normal as the Democrat Party continues its efforts to literally destroy our nation from the inside out. It was the week that the funeral of one of the biggest film box office stars of all-time, Burt Reynolds, received almost no notice at all from a fake news media that remains laser-focused on carrying out the orders of its Democrat benefactors. It was a week in which the public got even more proof of the...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) All the BetoMania SJWs and snowflakes be all like “Say whaaaaaaattttt?”. – In their debate on the SMU campus Friday night, Texas Senator Ted Cruz forced gun-grabbing Democrat challenger Irish Bob O’Rourke into saying, multiple times, that “I fully support the second amendment.” No word if the all-abortion, all-the-time Congressman from El Paso also now claims to somehow be “pro-life”, but it would be an equally honest statement. Hooboy. 11/9 appears to be roughly its box office gross. – Michael Moore’s new Trump-bashing film, stupidly titled “Fahrenheit 11/9” is tanking at the...

Grassley wrote on Twitter that he had "just granted another extension to Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed [with] the statement she made last week to testify to the [Senate]."

    Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, will speak to the FBI on Friday in San Francisco about the death threats against her, a source close to Ford tells CNN. The FBI investigation pertains only to the threats Ford has received since coming public with her allegations last weekend; it is not about the assault accusations against the Supreme Court nominee. Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s by pushing her into a bedroom at a party and attempting to remove her clothes. Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegation....
