    Two observations about the sexual misconduct allegations / smear campaign against the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh: 1. The evidentiary standards being pushed by Democrats and the MSM are lower than those used in the Salem witch trials. 2. Rapists, groomers, pimps and similar sexual deviants are never pro-life. These types always rely on easy access to abortion in order to cover up their crimes.

    Staffers for GOP Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), viewed as a key swing vote in the Supreme Court fight, say they are receiving "vulgar" phone calls over Brett Kavanaugh's nomination. Aides for the moderate senator, on social media and in multiple reports published on Tuesday evening, detailed calls and voicemails Collins's offices have been receiving as the battle over Kavanaugh kicks into high gear ahead of an end-of-the-month Senate vote. "We've had some very abusive callers. ...We've had some very vulgar calls and sort of harassing the staff," Steve Abbot, Collins's chief of staff, told a Maine TV station. The TV...

    Pulling away from the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing to spend two segments hyperventilating over Bob Woodward’s upcoming book on the Trump White House, CNN Newsroom afternoon host Brooke Baldwin gave CNN contributor and anti-Trumper John Dean the floor to slam Kavanaugh.  In addition, Baldwin misled viewers by not only just footnoting that Dean will testify later this week at Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, but did not mention how he would be doing it as a witness on behalf of Senate Democrats to thwart Kavanaugh’s chances of reaching the Supreme Court.CNN’s Baldwin Tees Up Dean to Trash Kavanaugh, Mislead Viewers   Baldwin...

    Democrats voted Saturday to drastically scale back the controversial superdelegate system that gives elected officials and party insiders an outsize say in the party’s presidential nominating process, delivering a significant victory for Bernie Sanders and his supporters ahead of 2020.

    On Wednesday night, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News remained aboard the proverbial liberal media party bus pushing Congress to impeach President Trump and delay or thwart Brett Kavanaugh from reaching the Supreme Court following Tuesday’s bad Trump headlines involving Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort. NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt told viewers amidst their extensive Trump coverage that just because “the Special Counsel has yet to” prove Trump-Russia collusion “does not mean prosecutors exposed criminality in the President’s universe” and quipped that White House correspondent Kristen Welker had a look at “a look at all the President's...
  • Sanders: I'm Declining Dem Nomination and Running as an Independent

    08/15/2018 9:54:01 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 53 replies
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated that, despite winning the Democratic primary, he will run for re-election in 2018 as an Independent. Sanders said, “I have always run as an Independent, and that’s what I will do. And I think people in Vermont understand that. We have a very good relationship with the Democratic Party. I suspect that this coming campaign we’ll be putting more money — our campaign will be putting more money into the Vermont Democratic Party than anybody else and supporting a whole lot of good Democratic candidates.” Host Ali Velshi...

    President Donald Trump announced on Monday night his nomination of D.C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh, who was included in The Heritage FoundationÂ’s original list of potential Supreme Court nominees, is a very promising choice.The battle lines were already drawn before Trump made his announcement, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., declaring he would not vote for any of the individuals on TrumpÂ’s short list.Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., promised the confirmation vote would happen this fall. Now, the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin the process of reviewing...

    Judges, particularly those on the Supreme Court, are expected to sit above the partisan fray. But Brett Kavanaugh, whom President Trump nominated to succeed Anthony M. Kennedy on Monday night, is much like the man who selected him — highly divisive in his decisions and rhetoric. According to a deep, data-driven survey of his writings from the bench, he is an uncommonly partisan judge, even compared to other federal appeals court judges. On the circuit court, Kavanaugh tended to dissent more often along partisan lines than his peers, according to our research. He justified his decisions with conservative doctrines far...

    It's a glorious time to be alive. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is stepping down, meaning that Donald Trump gets to pick another Supreme Court nominee, and those on the Left are having a white-hot thermonuclear meltdown which is more spectacular and beautiful to witness than any sunset...especially since this likely does represent the sun setting on many of their most beloved violations of the Constitution. Many progressives are especially bereft of hope because, judging on their social media posts, they actually believe that all laws come from the Supreme Court rather than being created by our elected officials...

    This past Thursday, Admiral Ronny Jackson officially withdrew as President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Veteran Affairs. Admiral Jackson, who served as a White House doctor for President George W. Bush and then as the official physician for President Obama and now President Trump, withdrew amid rumored accusations of very vague and unsubstantiated unbecoming professional conduct in the performance of his medical duties.Admiral Ronny Jackson said in a statement Thursday that the White House distributed that the allegations were “completely false and fabricated.” President Trump, in an interview with Fox & Friends on Thursday, himself said“ These are all false accusations. These are false....

    President Trump’s pick to head up the military health system lunged into the U.S. gun debate Tuesday during a Senate hearing, saying laws allowing civilians to purchase long guns like the Texas church shooter are “insane.” Dean Winslow, a professor at Stanford University, offered up the assessment, seemingly unprompted, amid questions from Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., about the military’s treatment of domestic violence convictions during his nomination hearing to be assistant secretary of defense for health affairs. Shaheen asked specifically whether Winslow believed a person such as Devin Patrick Kelley, who was jailed by the military for assaulting his wife...

    Hillary Clinton has spent a year crying about how the presidency was stolen from her. Turns out, she stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders. The stunning revelation from former Democratic National Committee interim chairperson Donna Brazile that Clinton secretly rigged the primary process by commandeering the DNC should come as no surprise to anyone. Clinton is nothing, if not unethical and corrupt. She always has been. This is precisely why pre-election polls consistently showed that a majority of Americans found her dishonest and untrustworthy. The critical question now is whether she committed crimes in her theft of the nomination....

    It's rich that rule of law-scoffing Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin grilled one of President Trump's judicial nominees, law professor Amy Coney Barrett, for placing her religious beliefs above the law. During Barrett's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Durbin asked her, "Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?" Apparently, Durbin thought he had Barrett dead to rights because of assertions she made in a law review article she co-wrote with her law professor in 1998 as a third-year student at Notre Dame Law School. In the article, "Catholic Judges in Capital Cases," the authors discussed...

    Senate Democrats came dangerously close to crossing a constitutional line regarding religious faith during an inquisition of one of President Trump's nominees for the federal court. Senators grilled federal judicial nominee Amy Barrett -- demanding to know how her faith would influence her decisions from the bench. Barrett is a professor at Notre Dame Law School and a devout Catholic. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), expressed grave concerns that Barrett is a Catholic in good standing. "When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern when you come to...

    President Trump announced more than three dozen appointments Friday night for key administration positions. The president intends to nominate Richard Grenell to serve as the next U.S. ambassador to Germany. Grenell served in former President George W. Bush’s administration as a spokesman for the U.S. mission to the United Nations.“For nearly two decades, he has served as the primary communications adviser for public officials at the local, state, Federal, and international levels, as well as for a Fortune 200 ranked company,” the White House statement said. “Mr. Grenell is the longest serving United States spokesman at the United Nations (2001-2008) having...

    With much of the media is fixated on Russia, Comey, and potential obstruction, other goings-on inside the Beltway are getting relatively scant attention.  The White House is ramping up its focus on rebuilding US infrastructure (a common Trump campaign refrain), Republican Senators may be forging ahead with some progress on desperately-needed reforms to Obamacare's failing status quo, and the president has unveiled another substantial roster of nominees to fill federal court vacancies.  Three names on the list are slated to serve on important and influent circuit courts of appeal -- including a woman Trump has tapped to assume Supreme Court...

    With the approach of a new baseball season the Trump administration should consider how far it is willing to go to get Neil Gorsuch on the Court. It is critical to get him approved before many more cases are argued. It should be obvious that the Trump presidency is undergoing numerous attacks in the Whack Job Judiciary. Everything it tries to do will be challenged in the courts. One of the strongest steps the Republican Senators could take would be to suspend or eliminate the Filibuster Rule. This has good arguments for it and good arguments against it. But there...

    As the Senate Judiciary Committee was hearing from witnesses for and against Judge Neil Gorsuch, his Supreme Court nomination was delivered a critical blow: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he would join with other Democrats in filibustering Gorsuch — a move that would require at least 60 senators to vote to end debate on the nomination.
