    Bookworm has noticed a very odd coincidence: after telling no one her story about the alleged incident for decades, she suddenly remembered and spoke about it in couples’ therapy in 2012, when leftists perceived the possibility that Mitt Romney, ahead in the polls, would win the presidency and appoint Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. She writes: In 2012, Romney ran against Obama. Up until his 47% gaffe, Romney was doing well. He actually had a shot of winning. For the Democrats, as has been the case since Bork, having a Republican in the White House, especially with the ever-aging...

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg promised that "this year's efforts to ensure the proper election outcome will be more successful than our 2016 intervention." "In 2016 our security safeguards didn't prevent all nonconforming content from reaching voters." Zuckerburg admitted. "Some anti-Clinton messages weren't detected and blocked. Likewise, some pro-Trump messages still managed to get through. In the intervening two years we have tightened our measures. I am highly confident that we will have the maximum possible positive influence in determining who wins." As an example of the "tightened measures" Zuckerberg pointed out that "we have banned the #WalkAway movement that seeks...

What appears to have been the selling line was that she’s Jewish, working class, and immigrated here when she was a baby from Colombia. Well, it looks like she was from a well-to-do family, born in Miami, and was a pro-life, pro-Israel supporter who appeared on Glenn Beck’s program representing Christians United for Israel.

    The federal response to Hurricane Maria is under scrutiny again after photos show what appear to be millions of water bottles meant for victims of the storm still sitting on a runway in Ceiba, Puerto Rico. The photos began circulating on social media Tuesday, the same day President Trump again praised the government's response to Maria during a meeting with top DHS and FEMA officials. Marty Bahmonde, a senior official at FEMA, confirmed to CBS News' David Begnaud that the agency delivered the water to the island. From there, the details are unclear. Bahmonde said they don't track specific shipments...

    A new report lays out how liberal nonprofits are funneling millions to Democratic governors to further their agenda. This not only brings up legal concerns, but also raises questions whether this represents “government for hire.” Democratic governors want to mobilize $50 million a year by 2020 for their climate policy agenda. Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown’s upcoming global warming activist summit is part of an effort to funnels millions of dollars from nonprofits to state politicians to advance a liberal climate agenda, according to a new report. Brown’s so-called “Global Climate Action Summit” begins Wednesday and is sure to garner...

    **SNIP** What keeps the city afloat, and allows it to maintain a robust jobs-based economy, is the ability to borrow money and deliver services. Only cities that manage their finances responsibly can hope to woo the bond market, and that’s what Emanuel has done. In municipal bond circles, he’s seen as a trusted partner whose departure is unsettling. “I’ve been pretty impressed with the mayor,” Howard Cure of Evercore Wealth Management told The Bond Buyer, an industry publication. “He inherited a very structurally weak budget and I think he’s made a lot of improvements and is striving to achieve structural...

    An attempt by loudmouth liberal Sen. Cory Booker to hijack Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing Thursday blew up in his face big time. It all started when the obnoxious New Jersey Democrat threatened to commit an act of “civil disobedience” by releasing a confidential Kavanaugh email. “I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” the arrogant senator, who had the gall to liken himself to Spartacus, bloviated during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday. While working for the administration of then-President George W....

    A judge on Wednesday ordered a Burlington County, N.J., couple to testify under oath next week about what happened to the $400,000 they raised in a GoFundMe campaign to help a homeless man, Johnny Bobbitt Jr. — money their lawyer says is gone and that Mr. Bobbitt says they squandered. Superior Court Judge Paula T. Dow directed Mr. Bobbitt's team of pro bono lawyers to request financial statements from the pair before the court closed on Wednesday. At the hearing, the couple's lawyer told the judge they wanted to invoke their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. At issue is whether...

    Tens of thousands of Californians have been registered to vote incorrectly by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, including some who were assigned the wrong political party preference, officials said Wednesday. Officials insist the errors were limited to 23,000 of the 1.4 million voter registration files sent to elections offices between late April, when California’s new automated “motor voter” system went into effect, and early August. Californians who were affected will soon receive notifications in the mail instructing them to check their voter registration status.

    Theranos Inc., the blood-testing company accused of perpetrating Silicon Valley’s biggest fraud, will soon cease to exist. In the wake of a high-profile scandal, the company will formally dissolve, according to a shareholder email. Theranos will seek to pay unsecured creditors its remaining cash in coming months, the letter said. The move comes after federal prosecutors filed criminal charges against Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes and the blood-testing company’s former No. 2 executive, alleging that they defrauded investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars and defrauded doctors and patients.

    Three years ago, which means it was before the mass murders at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs -- but after Sandy Hook Elementary and Fort Hood -- a University of Alabama professor sought to answer a chilling public policy question: Do countries other than the U.S. experience anything approaching America’s mayhem at the hands of shooters who randomly slaughter people in public places? The researcher’s name is Adam Lankford, and his answer was unequivocal. No, it only happens here, he proclaimed in a much-quoted 2016 academic paper. America, he said, stands alone. From...

    Illegal immigrants are opting out of government welfare programs out of fear of Trump Administration crackdowns coming done the pike, reported POLITICO on Monday. Due to a proposed Trump Administration rule to deny legal status to illegals on welfare, both legal and illegal immigrants have been inundating health care providers with calls demanding they be dropped from federal assistance programs like WIC. “Agencies in at least 18 states say they’ve seen drops of up to 20 percent in enrollment, and they attribute the change largely to fears about the immigration policy,” says the report.

    A battle royal is about to erupt, Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel told Sputnik, commenting on The Daily Caller's report that ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private server was hacked. According to Ortel, the Clinton email case deserves further scrutiny despite the FBI's denial of the alleged intrusion. The FBI has rebuked Donald Trump's tweet saying that Hillary Clinton's unsecured email servers were reportedly accessed by Chinese hackers; however, the agency has not yet clarified the point whether or not it had been informed by the Intelligence Community Inspector General about foreign intrusion of Clinton's private server back in 2015....
