  • Kavanaugh redux: John Bolton is Julie Swetnick II

    You might remember that during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings democrats were constantly finding “new” evidence and last second witnesses. Just when a witness was dealt with and it was time to move on, democrats would magically “discover” another witness, each succeeding one less credible than the last. Julie Swetnick was the classic example. Well, it’s deja vu all over again. We have a new magic act at hand. Back in October we learned that former National Security adviser John Bolton was writing a book about his time in the Trump administration.  Publication was said to occur prior to the 2020 election. It seems that date...
  • 21 Reasons Not To Believe Christine Blasey Ford’s Claims About Justice Kavanaugh

    The Federalist ^ | 2 Dec 2019 | Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino
    The ACLU recently awarded Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford. It is unclear why politicians and pundits still claim to believe Ford, given the lack of evidence in support of her serious accusations. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California recently presented Christine Blasey Ford with its Roger Baldwin Courage Award. Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape, nearly derailing his Supreme Court nomination. Many Democratic politicians and members of corporate media proudly announce that they “believe” Ford and believe that Kavanaugh should be impeached. ... 1. There Is No Evidence that Ford and Kavanaugh Ever Met...

  • Those Sexual harassment charges against Gordon Sondland look like Kavanaugh-esque smear

    Ambassador to the EU and recent House "impeachment inquiry" witness Gordon Sondland vehemently denies allegations of sexual harassment made by three women, concerning behavior before he entered public life, and has announced that he is not resigning. The allegations carry a strong odor similar to the smell that came from Christine Blasey -Ford and other women who attempted to derail the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.  Ashe Schow, writing in The Daily Wire, connects the dots: YouTube screen grab (cropped). The media are once against using sexual misconduct claims to tarnish the reputation of a man connected to the Trump...

    Pete Buttigieg’s high-flying presidential campaign said Wednesday it would refund the donations it received from two lawyers who represented Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his contentious Senate confirmation hearings. His campaign made the move after reporters from Britain’s The Guardian raised questions about the contributions from attorneys Alexandra Walsh and Beth Wilkinson, who are law partners. The two donated a combined $10,000 from the pair, $3,150 of which had already been returned because it exceeded contribution limits. “With nearly 700,000 donors, a contribution we would otherwise refuse sometimes gets through,” the campaign told the publication in a statement. “We...

    What do you call a Planned Parenthood supporter, anti-Kavanaugh activist, social media titan and supermodel known for “baring it all," who's also a feminist? Well normal Americans would call her a catwalk strutting oxymoron, but the media would call her “influential” and lavish heaps of praise on her for her “whirlwind career,” while giving her a platform for her wonky lefty politics. You know, politics like insisting that wearing a burka or supporting Planned Parenthood is the epitome of feminism. ABC’s Nightline gave celebrity supermodel and social media mogul Emily Ratajkowski an absolutely glowing promotional segment on Monday night. Rebecca...

    The DACA cases squarely present the question of whether Congress delegated the authority to resolve such a major question about immigration policy This morning, Justice Kavanaugh issued a statement respecting the denial of cert in Paul v. United States. He praised Justice Gorsuch's "scholarly analysis of the Constitution's nondelegation doctrine" from Gundy. Kavanaugh observed that the nondelegation doctrine "may warrant further consideration in future cases." Kavanaugh carefully and concisely describes the relationship between the nondelegation doctrine and the major questions doctrine. He writes: "JUSTICE GORSUCH's opinion built on views expressed by then-Justice Rehnquist some 40 years ago in Industrial Union...

    Christine Blasey Ford accepted the Robert Baldwin Courage Award on Sunday night from the Southern California chapter of the ACLU, thanking the organization for its “leadership in the struggle” in a rare public appearance since coming forward last year to accuse Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. “When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous.” Blasey Ford said. “I was simply doing my duty as a citizen, providing information to the Senate that I believed would be relevant to the Supreme Court nomination process. I thought anyone in my position would of course do the...

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — In a rare public appearance to pick up an award, the woman who accused U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault says she had a responsibility to come forward, NBC News reports. Christine Blasey Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, spoke Sunday after she accepted the Rodger Baldwin Courage Award from the ACLU of Southern California in Beverly Hills. She said: “When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous. I was simply doing my duty as a citizen. I understood that not everyone would welcome my information,...

    Protesters hounded Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday night outside an event in Washington, greeting him with shouts of “Impeach Kavanaugh” and a large screen replaying accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s congressional testimony. The demonstration outside the annual Federalist Society gala, where Kavanaugh was a featured speaker, continued a string of public harassment against conservatives in recent years. The screen playing Ford’s testimony -- in which she accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were teenagers -- was on a truck rolled up to the event by liberal activist group Demand Justice, The Washington Post reported.

    Protestors wheeled a big screen and speakers in front of Union Station Thursday night before Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's expected appearance at the Federalist Society's black tie event. Playing on the screen was the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford from Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings last year. In her testimony, Ford alleged that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her while the two were at Yale. Ford's allegation wasn't the only sexual assault claim against Kavanaugh, but he vehemently denied the allegation in front of congressional committees and was eventually confirmed to the highest court in the country.

    WASHINGTON — A bare majority of the U.S. Supreme Court appeared likely Tuesday to let the Trump administration follow through on its plan to shut down DACA, the federal program that has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as dreamers, to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S. With hundreds of DACA supporters rallying outside — so many that police shut down the street in front of the Supreme Court — the justices heard nearly an hour and a half of oral arguments. Based on their questions, it appeared that the court's five conservatives were inclined to rule that the...

    As House Democrats plan to hold public hearings in their Trump impeachment inquiry this week, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh is warning supporters of the president to expect something similar to what took place last year during then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings. "I really think that the model for what’s gonna happen this week is the Kavanaugh hearings. I mean, if you recall, here comes Christine Blasey Ford, she has her charge, and what were we told? She didn’t want to come forward," Limbaugh said on his radio show. "Then, it didn’t have the impact they...

Let’s remember what ABC, NBC and other media did to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing just a year ago, destroying his reputation, smearing him without evidence because he wasn’t on their political team.

    A second aide to Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., has been sentenced in a scheme to break into Hassan's office to obtain and publicly post the personal information of several Republican politicians amid contentious confirmation hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The 24-year-old former aide, Samantha Deforest Davis, was sentenced to two years of supervised probation with 200 hours of community service, with a suspended sentence of 180 days in prison. She was ordered to "stay away from [Hassan's] office to include current and former staff, and to not use Tor or anonymized computer applications," the Justice Department said in a statement....

    (snips) -- In response to Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski voting *not* to advance the supreme court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Sarah Palin sends the following tweet: Hey @Lisa Murkowski – I can see 2022 from my house. ___________ Do it, Sarah. Long term CTH readers will well remember how Tea Party candidate Joe Miller was backed by Sarah Palin when he stunningly defeated Lisa Murkowski during the republican primary in 2010. However, Murkowski would not accept the primary defeat and the entitlement-minded incumbent ran as a write-in candidate, and enlisted the assistance of democrats in Alaska to retain...

    Full title: Senators Follow Up With DOJ: What Happened to Our Criminal Referrals for People Who Lied About Kavanaugh? Last year then Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred a number of individuals to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution after they lied to congressional investigators about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Two of those individuals were Julie Swetnick and disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti. "While the Committee was in the middle of its extensive investigation of the late-breaking sexual-assault allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Avenatti publicized his client’s allegations of...

    All of the usual anti-Kavanaugh protesters showed up in D.C. this past Sunday to mark the one-year anniversary of Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court. Women's March promoters partnered with NARAL, the Center for American Progress, and Demand Justice to train demonstrators in the art of screaming, "Impeach the m-----------" and chanting, "Tell me what democracy looks like! This is what democracy looks like!" To show what their version of democracy looks like, this scuzzy bunch of mostly female agitators took to the streets around the Supreme Court building. They blocked traffic and created a mess before marching...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a 2020 presidential contender, on Monday issued a judicial ethics plan that would close a loophole and allow misconduct investigations of federal judges to continue even if they are elevated to the Supreme Court or resign from the bench. “It’s time to ensure that judges do not hear cases where they have conflicts of interests, strengthen our nation’s ethics rules for judges, and ensure accountability for judges who violate these rules,” Warren wrote in the proposal. Closing the loophole would have ramifications for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has faced sexual assault allegations, which he...

    The effort to sink Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation cries out for investigation. The Senate Judiciary Committee has already made a criminal referral to the Justice Department regarding alleged material misstatements by lawyer Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick. And a new book by two New York Times reporters contains a potentially explosive revelation. In “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh,” Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly report that Leland Keyser —who was unable to corroborate high-school friend Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of youthful sexual misconduct—says she felt pressured by a group of common acquaintances to vouch for it anyway. The book...
