    Full title: Washington Post admits gaffe after putting story on Kavanaugh coaching basketball in ‘Public Safety’ sectionThe Washington Post admitted it made a blunder on Wednesday by placing a story about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh coaching youth basketball under the “Public Safety” section online. Kavanaugh, who recently returned to coach his daughter’s basketball team, was famously accused of sexual assault during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Kavanaugh denied all allegations and was confirmed after an FBI investigation. Media watchdogs were then shocked when Ann Marimow’s Nov. 27 piece on his youth coaching appeared in the “Public Safety” section. However,...

    The Washington Post published a story on Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh returning to coach his daughter's basketball team again under its “public safety” category, drawing howls from conservatives. Kavanaugh returned to coach his daughter's team over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend after telling Senate Democrats last month that he “may never be able to coach again” due to charges of sexual misconduct, which he denied, that were lobbed against him during his confirmation hearing. National Republican Senatorial Committee member Logan Dobson flagged the Kavanaugh story while questioning its placement in the public safety section. It was placed above a story...

    Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her testimony against then-Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh in September dominated the news cycle, with her every word scrutinized by both sides of the political aisle and the media. Since the hearings, Ford has been mostly silent. Ford released a statement on a GoFundMe page collecting donations for her last week. The page was created on Sept. 18 with an initial goal of $150,000. It has raised nearly $650,000 on her behalf. "Words are not adequate to thank all of you who supported me since I came forward to tell the Senate that I...

    Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, a woman who hates this country so much that she could be charged with perjury when taking the oath of office, won the senate seat in a manner that would have gotten a thumbs up from the late Richard Daley. The GOP has made accusations of voter irregularities and outright fraud. In response, election officials simply said “Nah-uh” and went along their merry way as the press predictably declared there was nothing to see here. The problem with Arizona is there IS something to see here and if Democrats were being intellectually honest (which would be like...

    Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is taking the high road regarding Justice Brett Kavanaugh, stating he is already part of the “Supreme Court family,” despite the intense criticism her liberal supporters have lathered upon him. Appearing on CNN with David Axelrod, Sotomayor noted that the court adjusted very quickly to the addition of Kavanaugh to their bench, CNN reported. “When you’re charged with working together for most of the remainder of your life, you have to create a relationship,” Sotomayor told Axelrod during an interview that will air Saturday evening. “The nine of us are now a family, and we’re...

    Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor says that newly appointed Justice Brett Kavanaugh is already like “family.” Sotomayor recently sat down with David Axelrod, for an episode of CNN’s “Axe Files” that will air Saturday, and spoke about welcoming in the new justice. Kavanaugh was confirmed after a highly publicized Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in September. He was accused by Professor Christine Blasey Ford of sexual assault in the 1980s when they were both teenagers. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the accusation and was eventually confirmed with a 50-48 vote in the Senate. Sotomayor said among Supreme Court justices, typically a lifetime appointment,...

    President Trump announced Tuesday he is nominating Neomi Rao to fill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s vacant seat on the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Rao currently serves as the administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA). She is a vocal advocate of Trump’s efforts to slash government regulations, crediting them with stimulating job growth. “I think the reform efforts are part of what has stimulated economic growth and job creation and promoted technological innovation. And from my perspective, our reform efforts have really focused on promoting the rule of law and emphasized the...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., NY) said Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation helped more than hurt the Democratic Party in last week's midterm elections. . . . "I think the president lost more votes because of the Kavanaugh issue than gained throughout the country," Schumer added. Schumer was responding to a question from "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper about whether the Democrats got "outplayed when it came to the Kavanaugh nomination."

    Day after day after day, constant protests against conservative values are happening. Where is this coming from? Who is paying for it? How do you get that quantity of people together to protest for things for which they are protesting? How come almost ALL of the media are behind this movement to crush conservatives? How? The government (lol) should investigate and see who is organizing all of this. When public school teachers/professors push liberal, Godless ideas in the schools, it is nearly impossible to get anyone together to go to a school board meeting and protest it, much less GO...

    Today the Supreme Court held an investiture ceremony for Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh took the oath of office on October 6, shortly after he was confirmed, and he began to participate in the Supreme Court’s cases two days later, so this morning’s six-minute ceremony is largely a formality, at which the court will officially receive Kavanaugh’s commission; the ceremony, which is followed by a reception, also gives Kavanaugh a chance to celebrate with his family, friends and colleagues.(snip) Many (if not all) of the judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where Kavanaugh was...

    The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee was overheard Wednesday discussing Democrats’ plans to investigate and try to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. New York Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler took a series of phone calls while riding the Acela train from New York to Washington, D.C., not knowing that the The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway was also on the train and within earshot. Nadler is set to take over as judiciary chairman as a result of Democrats flipping the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections. Nadler claimed in one call that “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury,” claiming...

    With Democrats set to reclaim control of the House in January and President Trump already infuriating them with the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speculation is rampant over whether they will use that power to pursue impeachment against the president -- or even Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who wants to be speaker, has pushed back on pressure from the base to pursue impeachment, saying earlier this week "that's not what our caucus is about" even as Democratic lawmakers make clear they will pursue other investigations of the administration. But that pressure from...

    Every red state Democratic senator who voted against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation in October lost their re-election bids. Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Joe Donnelly of Indiana voted against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick – all three lost on Tuesday. The only red state Democrat to support Kavanaugh was rewarded with a re-election victory. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin won Tuesday night against Republican state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. His success allowed the Democratic Party to salvage what was otherwise a lackluster performance up and down Senate races. Trump campaigned...

While it repeated many previously known facts, the report included several new tidbits that further expose the fraudulent nature of the claims of sexual misconduct. Here are the top seven takeaways.

    It was supposed to be a blue wave. And yes, we got divided government, for better or for worse. But we can't really call it a blue wave given that the Republicans strengthened, significantly, in the Senate. One can argue it came of a lot of things, from good candidates, to Republican advantage in which seats were up for grabs, to the popularity of President Trump. But it sure doesn't explain everything, given that earlier predictions, based on historical patterns, were that the Senate would flip along with the House for the Democrats. Multiple signs point to the Brett Kavanaugh...

    Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee late Saturday released a 414-page report in which the panel members say they found no supporting evidence for any of the allegations of sexual misconduct made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation. “Committee investigators spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements relating to the various allegations made in the course of the #SCOTUS confirmation process,” the Senate Judiciary Committee tweeted Saturday. “The revelation of last minute allegations tested the committee in many ways. But these investigative efforts rose to the occasion and were critical to helping us obtain...
