The Kavanaugh Accusation Is a Setup

RUSH: All right. It is obvious to me, but I guess not a whole lot of people can say it. But this is a setup. It’s a thorough, entire setup. It’s gotta be a setup, and the Senate ought to deal with it as though it’s a setup. If she doesn’t show up, then go ahead with the vote — and now the accuser is saying she can’t show up, she won’t show up until the FBI investigates. Ladies and gentlemen, the whole business of the FBI investigating something that’s 36 years old is dubious at best. But beyond...

Grassley demands Feinstein turn over letter from Kavanaugh accuser: ‘I cannot overstate how disappointed I am’

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Wednesday unloaded a torrent of criticism on Sen. Dianne Feinstein for her handling of the sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, telling the ranking Democrat on the committee, “I cannot overstate how disappointed I am.” Saying Feinstein “chose to sit on the allegations until a politically opportune moment,” Grassley demanded she immediately turn over an unredacted copy of the letter from Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, that Feinstein received July 30.  Feinstein, D-Calif., shared the letter with federal authorities and other senators only last week, days before a key...

Professor Shoots Himself on Campus in Protest of Trump, AR-15’s, & Malnutrition

This week I have some bathroom humor that is…well, not funny. Sociology professor Mark J. Bird brought a gun to the College of Southern Nevada, where he is an emeritus professor. Bird proceeded to enter a bathroom and discharged his weapon into the arm of…. himself. Bird fired the self-inflicted shot to his arm in protest of Trump and his administration’s policies, including the lack of gun-control measures, malnutrition, and pollution. He had also taped a $100 bill to the bathroom’s mirror to compensate the janitor for the bloody mess he made inside the facility. take our poll –...

Kavanaugh Accuser, Twice Denied by FBI, Gets Ultimatum

In the whirlwind of maneuvers being performed on Capitol Hill over the course of the last few hours, one can get a bit lost. Trending: Massive Pedophilia Bust in NJ Snares Surprising Perps As it stands now, Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford has refused to testify in front of Congress to publicly declare her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are true.  Ford is demanding that the FBI investigate the incident first, in order to have all relevant information available. The only problem is that the FBI has denied her request on multiple occasions over the last 24 hours, as the...

Chaffetz: Dems have ‘damaged’ Kavanaugh and his family by ‘bending over backwards’ to hear accuser

Nick Givas, DCNF Former Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah said Congressional Democrats have “damaged” Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his family and have forced Republicans to start “bending over backwards” for his accuser. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of groping her at a high school party more than 35 years ago and claims he tried to forcibly remove her clothes while he was intoxicated. She has yet to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Senator [Chuck] Grassley is bending over backwards by offering this opportunity for [Ford] to publicly or privately testify,” Chaffetz said on “Mornings With Maria” Wednesday. Chaffetz said the families of America are taking note, as Democrats attack Kavanaugh personally and continue to damage his family. “I got to tell you, though, there are a lot of mothers and fathers that are looking out there at Judge Kavanaugh and saying, ‘You’re going to go back and disparage my son’ or have that vision that this person, some 36 years ago — his entire family is going to be damaged by this,” he added. ” You also look at these young daughters that he has, that he’s been coaching basketball. And I think a lot of people look at that and say, ‘What is the message to these young women.” Chaffetz also accused Democrats of putting unfair pressure on the Judiciary Committee and said they’re doing everything...

Sen. Sherrod Brown’s Ex-Wife Blasts Ad That Brings Up Old Domestic Abuse Allegations

“Disparaging my family for political gain is disgusting.” The organization #MeTooOhio released an ad last week that targeted incumbent Ohio Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown with decades-old allegations that he abused his then-wife Larke. Larke Recchie has slammed the ad and described Republicans as “disgusting” for using her family to score political points. From The Daily Caller: In 1986, Sen. Brown was in the midst of a tense divorce with his then-wife of seven years, Larke Recchie. Records from the Franklin County Common Pleas Court in Ohio show that Recchie said in her divorce complaint that Brown “has been guilty...

News Outlet Seeks Ellison Divorce Records

A small Minnesota news outlet called Alpha News has gone to court to try to unseal the records of Keith Ellison’s divorce. Normally I find the idea of unsealing divorce records repugnant, but Alpha News makes what seems a pretty good case in its press release: Keith Ellison is running to be Minnesota’s next Attorney General. As is common knowledge by now, two women have credibly accused him of domestic violence. We at Alpha News believe that the voting public of Minnesota should know the contents of his sealed divorce proceedings in order to make the most informed choice possible. That is why we instructed our attorneys to file a motion this afternoon in Hennepin County District Court seeking their unsealing. Minnesota media are usually not shy about asking for such things. For example, the Star Tribune expended time and money to get the Prince divorce records unsealed and were successful. Apart from clicks, we didn’t see much news value to the effort but it’s telling that even there, where only prurient interest could be said to exist, the court granted the newspaper’s request. Several Minnesota media outlets joined forces to compel the public release of documents relating to the tragic disappearance and murder of Jacob Wetterling. This coalition included the Pioneer Press, the Star Tribune, MPR, the Minnesota Newspaper Association, the Minnesota Broadcasters Association and others. The documents...

North Korea “ready” to denuclearize, if…

For the past two days, the leaders of North and South Korea have been in a series of rather intense meetings. From all indications, the summit went well and a few tentative agreements were reached. That’s a fairly remarkable achievement in and of itself when you consider the state of affairs between the two nations less than one year ago. While I’ve been skeptical of Kim’s true intentions all along, it’s almost beginning to look as if the Korean War may actually be over. But what about the interests of America and the rest of the world? Is Rocket Man seriously ready to completely denuclearize? The two leaders suggested that the time may have come, but such things always come with a caveat. And this is a big one. Kim claims to be ready to begin but, once again taking the opposite view from President Trump’s demands, he wants something from the United States first. (Associated Press) The leaders of North and South Korea announced a wide range of agreements Wednesday which they said were a major step toward peace on the Korean Peninsula. But the premier pledge on denuclearization contained a big condition, with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un stating he’d permanently dismantle his main nuclear complex only if the United States takes corresponding measures. Compared to the vague language of their two summits earlier this year,...

Don’t believe a gender. Believe evidence.

“Believe Women” is perilous baloneyby Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateCopyright 2018 I have a message for virtue-signaling men who’ve rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion. Stuff it. Your blanket “Believe Women” bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul. A certain class of never Trump-harumphers are leading the charge on behalf of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s memory-addled partisan accuser Christine Blasey Ford — who cannot recall the year she was allegedly traumatized, where it happened, who threw the party that paralyzed her for nearly four decades, how many were in attendance during her claimed assault, how she got there or how she left. No matter! Bush campaign hack-turned-ABC News analyst Matthew Dowd doesn’t need any data to analyze. “Enough with the ‘he said, she said’” storyline,” he declared this week. “If this is he said, she said, then let’s believe the she in these scenarios. She has nothing to gain, and everything to lose. For 250 years we have believed the he in these scenarios. Enough is enough.” Clinton/Kerry flack Peter Daou echoed the unthinking sentiment: “To everyone on the right who says I’m being selective, I BELIEVE WOMEN whether the accused is a Republican or Democrat. And yes, that includes all the names you’re throwing at me. My default in...

Rush to judgment: Pols, pundits picking sides on Kavanaugh accusation

One of the depressing aspects of the cultural debate sparked by the accusation against Brett Kavanaugh is that so many politicians, pundits and ordinary people have already made up their minds based on very limited information. I suppose it was too much to ask that people actually wait for the Supreme Court nominee and for Christine Blasey Ford to testify and see what additional information emerges. That’s no longer the way our hyperpolarized society works. Still, it is striking to see the absolute certainty with which people on the public stage, and many folks on Twitter, are declaring that...

Cornyn blasts Feinstein for ‘extraordinary hiccup’ as Kavanaugh accuser remains mum on testimony

Henry Rodgers, DCNF Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn blasted California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein for withholding relevant information regarding Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of high school-era sexual assault, calling it an “extraordinary hiccup.” John Cornyn. Image: screen grab. Cornyn said it is up to the voters and members of Congress to draw their own conclusions on why Ford has not yet responded to the Senate Judiciary Committee about testifying, after originally agreeing to do so. Cornyn also blamed Feinstein for withholding information about Ford until after Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing was concluded. He thinks Kavanaugh will still be confirmed. “There are people who want to hear what the witnesses say on Monday. This is an extraordinary hiccup in the process caused by Senator Feinstein withholding relevant information until after the hearing was concluded. So we’ll get to the hearing on Monday if it goes as I expect the judge will be confirmed,” Cornyn told reporters in the U.S. Capitol Tuesday afternoon. When asked why he personally thought Ford has not yet responded to the inquiry from the committee to testify, Cornyn responded by saying the people can draw their own conclusions about her decision. “She hadn’t responded yet. I don’t know. I guess you can draw your own conclusion, but we thought it was important to provide her the opportunity, if she wanted to take advantage of it and if she wants to do it in a...

Kavanaugh Accuser’s couples therapy records, partially leaked to WaPo, may hold the key

Odd that the memory of the alleged assault was recovered during couples therapy, and the therapist records were selectively leaked by the accuser. When The Washington Post broke the story that Christine Blasey Ford was the person who accused Supreme Court nominee of assault dating back to high school, there were several aspects of the WaPo story that struck me as particularly strange. First, there was a suggestion that this is a repressed and recovered memory case: “Years later, after going through psychotherapy, Ford said, she came to understand the incident as a trauma with lasting impact on her life.”...

5 Ways Giant Corporations Are Threatening Free Speech in America

Conservatives quite correctly consider the government to be the primary threat to their freedom in America. However, free speech goes beyond the First Amendment — and the government is not the only threat to it. As long as they’re at least lightly regulated and face real competition, corporations are not a threat to free speech. If anything, we over-regulate corporations in America, so that’s not a big worry. On the other hand, even though breaking up monopolies is a conservative idea with a long pedigree, it has fallen out of favor in recent years. That has allowed corporations in a...

This day in baseball history: Back-to-back no-hitters

1968 was the year of the pitcher. However, when Gaylord Perry hurled a no-hitter for San Francisco against the St. Louis Cardinals on September 17, 1968, it was just the fourth no-hitter of the season, not an usually high number. On September 18, when the Giants again played the Cardinals, the pitching matchup wasn’t nearly as mouth watering as the day before when Perry beat Bob Gibson 1-0. However, the game did feature two pitchers having outstanding seasons. The Giants started Bob Bolin, who would finish the season second to Gibson in the National League in ERA with a 1.99 mark. St. Louis countered with Ray Washburn, an average pitcher (his promising career was hampered by serious arm trouble) having an excellent season. Entering the game, Washburn was 13-7 with a 2.39 ERA. The Cardinals had already clinched the pennant, but were slumping. Their record for the month of September stood at 7-8. Neither Bolin nor Washburn yielded a hit through the first four innings, and both faced the minimum number of hitters possible. In the top of the fifth, Mike Shannon broke the ice with a two-out single. Phil Gagliano followed with a walk, but Bolin got Dick Schofield on a pop-up. There were no more hits until the top of the seventh. Orlando Cepeda singled with one out and advanced to second on an out by Johnny...

The threat posed by “complacent Trump voters”

It wasn’t too long ago when the President told supporters at a campaign rally that if the GOP winds up losing the House and he gets impeached, “it will be your fault.” That raised a few eyebrows (as he so often does) but it’s looking more and more like he might be right. And worst of all, Trump may be feeding into the problem. We heard rumors of this earlier, specifically when Allahpundit wrote about some data coming out of America First Action. A series of focus groups they tested showed a lack of urgency among Trump’s base, with...

Dems make new demands on Kavanaugh hearing, as Republicans cry foul

Democratic senators on Tuesday escalated their demands regarding a hearing to examine the sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh — suggesting Monday’s scheduled public session with the Supreme Court nominee and his accuser is not enough, calling for more witnesses and more time for the FBI to dig into the allegations.  Much remains up in the air, with the allegation threatening to sideline the nomination days before Kavanaugh was slated for a floor vote. Right now, the FBI apparently is not investigating further despite Democratic demands. And it’s not clear the hearing announced by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck...

Keith Ellison’s accuser says Dem party doesn’t believe her, with proof – cry for Kavanaugh’s head, with none
