    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California again demanded Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing to the Supreme Court be delayed, hours after Christine Blasey Ford agreed to testify about her sexual misconduct accusations against Kavanaugh. “I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh,” Feinstein said in a statement late Sunday evening. Feinstein’s letter was in response to a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, who came forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct decades ago. The California senator’s demand came hours after Ford agreed to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee following...

    The Federalist ^ | September 24, 2018 | David Harsanyi
    Whatever happens to Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats have normalized yet another illiberal position in their pretend crusade to save the Constitution from Donald Trump. “Doesn’t Kavanaugh have the same presumption of innocence as anyone else in America?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono this past Sunday. “I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases,” was her unexpectedly honest answer. Plainly put, Hirono argues that because Kavanaugh—who earned the highest rating from the ABA during his time on the DC appellate court—has a record of originalist...

    Arminta “Cleo” Jeffryes wants Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to realize some things are bigger than football. In a phone interview Wednesday, after spending 2 1/2 days in jail for protesting outside a Cowboys game over the weekend, the 25-year-old Lyft driver and self-described “radical” activist criticized Prescott for not following the example set by Colin Kaepernick. “He’s so wack for that,” Jeffryes said of Prescott. “As a black man you should want to speak out against police brutality and racial injustice. You have a black father. One day you will have black children.” Prescott told reporters in July that...

    OK I posted two threads in the last week with discussions about the Ford "woman" and DiFi getting censured for making a mockery of the SCOTUS pick process, and bother were deleted. Why? I will grant the first one was iffy (It was about For bragging that she 'pulled the train" in high school) But the 2nd was a valid discussion of Di Fi getting censured for her behavior and removed from the committee. What was wrong with THAT? I posted it in chit/chat

    Predictions of a looming Democratic “blue wave” haven’t soured Christian conservative activists, who say President Trump has notched so many surprise wins that they have faith he will again defy the naysayers and deliver Republican victories in November. Leaders on the religious right are more measured, saying Republican control of the House is very much in jeopardy and warning the Republican faithful not to become overconfident in Mr. Trump’s ability to deliver the impossible. The midterms could be much closer than many expect, Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, told reporters last week. “I think what you are...

    Hillary Clinton has a message for Donald Trump: You’re not above the law. On Friday, the former First Lady and Secretary of State discussed the legal challenge of indicting a sitting president, which Trump’s legal team has claimed cannot happen, on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Clinton was present to promote the paperback release of her best-selling campaign memoir, What Happened. “If you’re not president and you’ve committed a crime, you should be able to be indicted,” Clinton explains to Colbert. Trump and his campaign are under federal investigation for obstruction of justice and potential collusion with the Russian...

    The emergency report (video and article) I posted on Sunday got picked up by InfoWars and received a huge amount of attention, creating quite a stir over my analysis of Trump invoking “martial law” in order to carry out the mass arrests of deep state traitors.What most people fail to realize is that we’ve been living under many forms of “martial law” put in place by Obama that are still damaging America and its citizens to this very day. For example: The tech giants’ deplatforming of InfoWars, Natural News and other pro-Trump channels is an extremely dangerous form of...

    SDSS J1050+0017, also known as ClG J1050+0017, is approximately 6 billion light-years away from Earth. The gigantic mass of this galaxy cluster creates the fascinating phenomenon of strong gravitational lensing.SDSS J1050+0017’s gravity bends light coming from behind it in a similar way to how the base of a wine glass bends light.The effects of this lensing can be clearly seen as curved streaks forming a circular shape around the center of the Hubble image.Astronomers can use these distorted galaxies to calculate the mass of the cluster — including the mass of the dark matter within it — and to peer...

    Prominent Bergoglio Archbishop in Troubles Archbishop Mario Delpini of Milan, Italy, the biggest diocese of the world, is in troubles after Father Mauro Galli, 32, was condemned to six years and four month in prison. In December 2011, only month after his ordination, Galli abused the 15-year-old Alessandro, a teenager with learning difficulties. Galli’s parish-priest immediately informed Delpini who at the time was an auxiliary bishop and the episcopal vicar responsible for the area. As a consequence Galli was moved to another parish. Milan diocese justified this move with the argument that at the time nobody was speaking about [homosexual]...

    Evangelical College Azusa Pacific announced last week that it will be allowing LGBT relationships for students on campus following years of pressure. Zu Media, the student paper, reported last week that officials at the Christian university in California have decided to remove language from the student standard of conduct that previously prohibited such relationships on campus. APU has said that despite the change, set to take effect in the Fall 2018 semester, it still backs the "Biblical principles of human sexuality," in the belief that "sexual union is intended by God to take place only within the marriage covenant between...

    The Syrian government first began receiving S-200 systems around 1983. By the time the civil war began, the Syrian army still operated several S-200 sites, but on at least one occasion, rebels overran one site that contained a fire control radar in disrepair. Beginning in 2015 after Russia joined the war on the side of Syria, efforts were made to rehabilitate these systems. In November 2016, Defense Minister Shoigu announced that Syria’s S-200s had been restored. Thoughout 2017 several were fired at Israeli aircraft, and while the Syrians claimed to have downed an Israeli fighter and a drone at one...
