    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is rejecting a request from Democrats to delay a Thursday hearing where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are set to testify. Grassley sent a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the committee, saying he would "respectfully decline" her request to postpone until the White House ordered an investigation into two sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. "I respectfully decline your request. I am not going to silence Dr. Ford after I promised and assured her that I would provide her a safe, comfortable, and dignified opportunity to testify," Grassley...

    Update: Avenatti denies he was punked by 4chan trolls. Asked @MichaelAvenatti about the rumor his new client is a hoax: “It never happened. None of it. No truth to it.

The two said they were behind Avenatti going public with an outrageously false story accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his prep school...

    Discovery: House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows said Tuesday he wants Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to testify before Congress under oath regarding details contained in a New York Times report last week. The Times report claims that Rosenstein once offered to secretly record POTUS Trump inside the Oval Office while wanting to “recruit” top Trump administration officials to get rid of the president via the 25th Amendment — a majority of Cabinet members voting for removal. The Times says that Rosenstein shared those plans with “other Justice Department and FBI officials,” who of course gave the paper their details...
  • Corruption in the Senate Confirmation Process

    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...

    Russia says it will supply Syria with a version of the S-300 air and missile-defense system, despite objections from Washington and Tel Aviv. The Kremlin made the decision to supply Damascus with the potent air-defense system after a Syrian S-200 surface-to-air missile battery mistakenly shot down a Russian Ilyushin Il-20M Coot-A intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft during an Israeli raid on Assad regime forces on September 17.The Kremlin has decided to supply the Syrian regime with the potent S-300 because Moscow blames Israel for the downing of its Il-20M despite the fact that it was a Syrian-operated weapon that...

    Washington DC lobbyist Jack Burkman is offering a $25,000 reward for incriminating evidence on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers Christine Ford, Deborah Ramirez and the other woman who accused Kavanaugh of gang-rape. Burkman says discrepancies in both stories have cast doubt on both Ford and Ramirez, making the case near impossible to weigh on without investigation. WASHINGTON D.C. – After allegations of sexual assault stalled the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Jack Burkman, a D.C.-based lawyer and lobbyist, is offering a $25k reward for information on Kavanaugh’s three accusers As rumors regarding the timing and potential of political motivation...

    Fox News ^ | September 25, 2018 | Newt Gingrich
    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...

    An attorney for the woman who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades ago has raised fresh concerns about the format for Thursday's highly anticipated hearing with her and the Supreme Court nominee. The letter raising those issues once again could throw into doubt the scheduled hearing, which has been the subject of ever-changing negotiations since Christine Blasey Ford first went public. In the message, sent to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley late Monday and obtained by Fox News, her attorney took issue with apparent plans for an outside counsel to ask questions -- as well as fiery...

    An insurance agent claims he should qualify as a minority business owner, because a DNA test shows he’s 4 percent African — enough, he believes, to make him “a certified black man.” Ralph Taylor knows on the outside he looks like an average white guy, but he is trying using the results from his AncestryByDNA test to bolster his business in Lynnwood, Washington. “I’ve always known that I’m multiracial,” the 55-year-old declared to the Washington Post. The 2010 test showed that he’s 90 percent European, 6 percent indigenous American and 4 percent sub-Saharan African. This gizmo can turbocharge the DNA-identification...

The attorney, a female, has not been identified due to safety concerns. The Senate Judiciary Committee led by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) agreed to use a prosecutor experienced in sex-crimes to serve as an investigative staff counsel for the hearing.

    The Indianapolis Star issued an apology to its readers after an outcry over an editorial cartoon that skewered Christine Blasey Ford ahead of her upcoming Senate hearing. The cartoon, which was published in the newspaper’s print edition Sunday, depicted Ford sitting in front of the Judiciary Committee with her back to the reader. “Here are my demands,” she is depicted telling the panel. “No questions from lawyers, dim the lights, I want roses, sparkling water, a bowl of green M&Ms." The cartoon was mocking Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a...

    The Democrats sacrificed Al Franken in order to shore up their effort to win a Senate seat in Alabama. They knew that Minnesota’s governor would appoint another Democrat to replace Franken, so they could net a Senate seat with an upset pickup in Alabama, which is exactly what happened. Many Minnesota Democrats are still unhappy that Franken was forced out of the Senate, not by Republicans but by his own Democratic colleagues. Now it is starting to look as though the Democrats may be throwing Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison overboard in a similar manner. We noted last week that...

    From the playground to geopolitics, appeasing an aggressor invites only more aggression. This timeless truth of human nature is one that we moderns can’t seem to accept. We reflexively assume that a rational accommodation or concessions will be reciprocated by those proven to be ready to use any means necessary to achieve their aims, no matter how amoral, unfair, or vicious. Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court illustrate that this false assumption leads only to more demands, and ultimately to defeat. The last-minute accusations from Christine Blasey Ford, a woman who claims that decades ago Kavanaugh groped her...
