    An anti-Trump professor at Georgetown University went on a profanity-laced Twitter rant against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of committing a sexual assault as a teen. Dr. Carol Christine Fair is an associate professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown, according to the school’s website. Fair referred to “Kreepy Kavanaugh” as a “perjurer” and a “rapist” on her verified Twitter account, adding that “nothing has changed since Anita Hill.” Fair also said the “GOP doesn’t care about women. We knew this. F--- them.” In another tweet about Kavanaugh, Fair referred to the GOP as “pro-rape,...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump pressed fellow Republicans in Congress on Thursday to "get tough" and push to fund his proposed border wall in the current spending bill, raising the specter of a government shutdown when funding lapses later this month. In a post on Twitter, Trump called the bill "ridiculous" for not including funds for a planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, and blamed Democrats for blocking it in the plan passed by the Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday. The Senate-approved massive spending package included a provision to fund the federal government through Dec. 7 in...

    Hollywood actresses and women from around the U.S., some being key members of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, have shown their support for Christine Blasey Ford. Blasey, a professor at California's Palo Alto University, who recently accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has seen significant public support after she made the difficult decision to publicly share her story. Now, the likes of Julianne Moore, America Ferrera, Gabrielle Union, Amber Tamblyn, Eva Longoria, Jamia Wilson, and Marisa Tomei, along with many other women from different situations, all read the same supportive letter to Ford, in a video...

    Identity Politics: Democrats, and especially Leftist feminist Democratic women, hate men, and especially white men, whom they blame for all problems not just in the United States but the world over. And another one of them, Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, made that perfectly clear again on Tuesday in her defense of Christine Blasey Ford, the Leftie activist professor who is accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually harassing her 36 years ago at some party, somewhere, at some point. In lambasting critics of Ford’s accusation, which is chock full of holes, is being refuted by scores of people who have...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for her statements about sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "Now clear why top Democrat on Senate Judiciary Committee did nothing with allegation for months or even ask Judge Kavanaugh about it," Sanders tweeted. "Senator Feinstein just said 'I can't say everything's truthful.'" Feinstein told reporters on Capitol Hill earlier Tuesday that she couldn't say that everything in Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh was "truthful." Feinstein later clarified her comments to CNN, saying, "Based on what I know at this stage, she [Ford] is...

    President Trump on Thursday night doubled down on his statements about the 3,000 death toll in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria last year. Trump retweeted a segment from Fox Business host Lou Dobbs praising the president's statements. "The numbers were inflated and the president was right to call out the organizations who threw out science, statistics, and evidence to discredit the Trump administration," Dobbs claimed during the segment. Dobbs pointed to the source of the 3,000 number, a study from George Washington University's Milken Institute, which estimated the number of "excess deaths" that occurred from Hurricane Maria, as opposed to...

    Karen Monahan, the woman accusing Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse, responded to a Twitter user on Monday who asked if Democrats believe Monahan’s allegations, saying they don’t, and that she’s been threatened and isolated from her own party. The user was following up on a tweet about Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Peter Daou, a Democratic strategist and former advisor to Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, tweeted on Monday that Ford will be “attacked, smeared, and demonized” and that people must “BELIEVE WOMEN.”

    Here's another collection of my tweets to my Bishop, mostly about --- what shall we call it? --- The Situation. These won't all be recyclable, but I hope some of them will. Feel free to use any of them. It's just tiny way, I suppose, to offer filial correction or support. We must obey God, not men --- as our first Pope, St. Peter said. God bless Bishop Strickland. Abp Vigano had the courage to speak up clearly and pay up personally. Let the Pope answer Vigano's Testimony if he can. The silence -- Omerta --- is not going to...

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says in a new interview that his company's conservative employees are afraid to express their opinions. "We have a lot of conservative-leaning folks in the company as well, and to be honest, they don't feel safe to express their opinions at the company," Dorsey told Recode in an interview published Friday. "They do feel silenced by just the general swirl of what they perceive to be the broader percentage of leanings within the company, and I don’t think that’s fair or right," he added, though he did not specify to what extent or how many of...

    It just occurred to me that I should share all my tweets to my Bishop on FR too, so FReeper Catholics can tweet them to your bishops as well. I am not much of a social media maven, but if 60 million Catholics do the little we can -- well, you know how this gospel works: you give your 2 little fishes and 5 barley buns, and the Lord will multiply it out. So here, please free free to use my hand-crafted artisanal right-sized tweets to my bishop over the past couple weeks: Speaking of "news": USCCB statement saying that...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attacked Twitter on Thursday after the company mistakenly barred some tweets from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a think tank that favors restrictions on immigration. “Does Twitter now ban the plain text of federal law?” Cruz asked on Twitter, in reference to CIS’s claim that several of its tweets were not allowed to be promoted on the platform for using the term “illegal alien.” The think tank, which has been labeled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty and Law Center, said that after several of its tweets were denied paid promotion status, it...
