  • Hirono: FBI investigation on Kavanaugh was a 'sham'

    “Brett Kavanaugh should never have been confirmed to the Supreme Court. It was plain to me and many others at the time that the FBI ‘investigation’ into the serious, corroborated allegations of sexual assault by Justice Kavanaugh was a sham. New reporting from the New York Times further proves it. “In normal times, I would call on the Department of Justice’s Inspector General to fully investigate the FBI’s failures in this matter. But these are not normal times. The House Judiciary Committee should immediately begin an impeachment inquiry to determine whether Justice Kavanaugh lied to Congress and why the FBI...

    In a written declaration released Tuesday and obtained by Fox News, an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, directly contradicts her testimony under oath last week that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph examination. The former boyfriend, whose name was redacted in the declaration, also said Ford neither mentioned Kavanaugh nor mentioned she was a victim of sexual misconduct during the time they were dating from about 1992 to 1998. He said he saw Ford going to great lengths to help a woman he believed was her "life-long best...

    Rudy Giuliani and his wife, Judith, are divorcing after 15 years of marriage, the former New York mayor confirmed first to Page Six. Giuliani, who married Judith in 2003, said, “It is with great sadness I can confirm that Judith and I are divorcing. We hope to do this as amicably as possible, and hope that people will respect the privacy of our children at this time.” Judith on Wednesday filed a contested divorce proceeding in Manhattan Supreme Court, which indicates she’s readying for a fight over their marital assets, which include property in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Fla.

    RUSH: There’s an ABC poll out. You will not believe… Well, you will when I tell you why this ABC poll is so damned distorted. You know what this polling stuff is doing? This misrepresentation… They take and put together a faulty sample that oversamples Democrats. This ABC/Washington Post poll that has Trump’s approval number plummeting? Do you know what the plus Democrat number is? It’s 12%! There was a plus-12% additional Democrats sampled in this poll. Well, hell’s bells! And if you look elsewhere, you find that barely 9% of Trump’s base is having some problems with him. He...

    Via the Blaze, a clip that raises an important question: Can one be properly “woke” without having killed a baby? Skip to 13:30 below. Someone whose cultural cachet doesn’t depend on being a young feminist and provocateur would have turned this into a more thoughtful bit of commentary. She’s a loud and proud abortion warrior, she says, but she’s uncomfortable (or used to be uncomfortable) with people thinking that she might have had an abortion herself. How come? Had she unconsciously adopted an unjust social stigma against abortion, as she assumes, or was she experiencing a moral intuition about abortion...

    The Pentagon acknowledged on Monday that Iraqi forces could have discovered a cache of U.S. weapons and missiles seized by Islamic State (IS) militants operating in the country, according to U.S. officials and regional media reports. Iraqi forces combatting IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) are said to have found a stockpile of U.S. weapons, including ammunition and anti-armor missiles, hidden at sites controlled by terrorist forces, according to foreign military sources who spoke to Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency. This is said to include a “huge volume” of advanced TOW II anti-tank missiles.

    Two topless feminists have stormed the stage at a Muslim conference in France. The activists, from hard-line feminist outfit Femen jumped on stage, with “Nobody makes me submit” scrawled across their bare chests. The most prominent protester shouted, “Nobody makes me submit, me nobody owns me, I’m my own prophet!” before being dragged and kicked off the stage by angered Muslims. The video, below, shows the incident that took place at the Muslim Salon in Pontoise, France, a town just outside of Paris, which ended “violently” according to one eyewitness. The activists stormed the stage, leading to two embarrassed looking...

    KXLY recently reported that Patrick Rushing, mayor of Airway Heights, Wash., is facing increased pressure to resign after a Facebook comment about the Obama family was criticized by some locals as racist. “Gorilla face Michelle,” he wrote in the now-deleted post, “can’t disagree with that. The woman is not attractive except to monkey man Barack. Check out them ears. LOL.” When the backlash that followed reached city hall, five of six council members present at a recent meeting voted to ask Rushing to step down. Airway Heights Police Chief and Acting City Manager Lee Bennett explained why local leaders felt...

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - Speaking to reporters in Washington Tuesday, Sen. Harry Reid called on Nevada higher education officials to consider changing the University of Nevada, Las Vegas' mascot and sports nickname. The statements came after a shooting in South Carolina that claimed nine lives sparked debate about displays of the Confederacy. On the campus of UNLV Tuesday, it was difficult to find anyone who believes the mascot, Hey Reb!, should be changed. “What happened over there is a tragedy of course, but what's happening here on campus is what's happening on campus. Go Rebels,” student Billy Watts said. “I...

    The alleged fried rat that was found by a KFC customer is nothing more than another piece of chicken in the bucket. Last week, a California man named Devorise Dixon claimed that a piece of meat that came in his KFC meal was a fried rat. “It was very nasty,” he said. “I spit it out. I looked down at my hand and I realized that it was in the shape of a rat with a tail and everything in it.” Independent lab results showed that the breaded lump was, in fact, a piece of chicken. KFC spokesman Rodrigo Coronel...

    Wall Street's generous supply of funds to U.S. oil drillers helped create the American energy boom. Now that same access to easy money is keeping them going, despite oil prices that are languishing around $60 a barrel. The flow of money into oil has allowed U.S. companies to avoid liquidity problems and kept American crude production from falling sharply. Even though more than half of the rigs that were drilling new wells in September have been banished to storage yards, in mid-May nearly 9.6 million barrels of oil a day were pumped across the country, the highest level since 1970,...

    MADISON, Wis. -- A white Wisconsin police officer won't be charged for fatally shooting an unarmed 19-year-old biracial man, a prosecutor announced Tuesday, prompting peaceful demonstrations but none of the immediate violence that has hit some other U.S. cities in similar cases. Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said he wouldn't file charges against Madison Officer Matt Kenny in the March 6 death of Tony Robinson, saying the officer used lawful deadly force after he was staggered by a punch to the head and feared for his life. Ozanne, mopping his brow repeatedly but speaking forcefully for some 25 minutes,...

    FLINT, Mich., April 30 (UPI) -- Michael Moore turned to Twitter Thursday morning to voice his demands to society in the wake of civil unrest in Baltimore. "Imprison u, shoot u, sever your spine, crush your larynx, send u to war, keep u poor, call u a thug, not let u vote. But u can sing for us," the controversial film director tweeted to his 1.83 million followers. He went on to demand that all African-Americans currently incarcerated for non-violent or drug crimes to be released immediately. "I don't believe 50% of them did what they're accused of," he said....

She added, "We are committed to operating the Foundation responsibly and effectively to continue the...

    The parents of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old killed last year by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., filed a civil lawsuit against the city Thursday. This lawsuit alleges that the officer’s actions violated Brown’s civil rights, and goes on to state that the city’s broader law enforcement practices “led directly to the unjustified killing.” Brown was shot and killed last August by Darren Wilson, a Ferguson police officer. This shooting set off frenzied protests in the city, demonstrations that flared up again in November when a grand jury opted not to indict Wilson and again last month when the...
