Desperate Democrats Trot Out Children
to Testify Against Kavanaugh
PJ Media, by Paula Bolyard    Original Article

If you want proof that our system is broken, you need only look at today´s hearing on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, where children who aren´t old enough to vote testified against the nominee. The great sages of the Democratic Party are kids who know little-to-nothing about the role of the Supreme Court, as their testimonies demonstrated today. First up was Parkland shooting survivor Aalayah Eastmond. "I am very concerned since learning Brett Kavanaugh’s views on guns, and how he would strike down any assault weapons ban," she explained — an opinion no doubt informed by her

Obama´s bitter sore spot:
The Trump economy

Back on center stage and partisan as ever, President Obama leaped back into politics Friday with a stemwinder stump speech on behalf of his fellow Democrats, declaring Democrats the fount of all progress, bringing up his favorite hobbyhorses, and, most notably, blasting Trump for his economy...before saying the economy was all his. I think we know what Obama´s sore spot is now. His whole speech shows he has no idea how economies work. According to the Daily Caller citing the speech: Obama mentioned the financial crisis

Anaheim, California - Former President Barack Obama, a day after delivering a stinging critique of President Donald Trump´s years in office, will headline his first rally of the 2018 midterm elections on Saturday, stumping with seven Democrats looking to turn their congressional districts blue in November. The event, a 750-person rally for seven Democrats running in districts Hillary Clinton won in 2016 but which are represented by the Republicans in the House, will officially end Obama´s absence from the campaign trail, a months-long absence that has angered some Democrats who believe he is not engaging in a

The young man booted from a Trump rally in Billings, Montana on Thursday said he wasn´t trying to mock the president with his overly-dramatic facial expressions. In a viral video, a man in a plaid shirt is seen snickering, throwing puzzled looks at the camera and mouthing disagreements during Trump´s speech. At one point in the clip, a brunette-haired Trump rally staffer approaches the man and makes him leave. Soon after, another Trump rally staffer appears on camera and makes two more guests leave. High school student Tyler Linfesty came forward as the plaid shirt guy telling KTVQ that

DNC lawyers say Joseph Mifsud,

“Dead men tell no tales” is the motto of ruthless and bloodthirsty miscreants throughout history. And, if the court papers filed by lawyers for the Democratic National Committee are correct, we will never hear what London-based Professor Joseph Mifsud had to say about how and why he set-up George Papadopoulos with the information that Russia had “dirt” on the Hillary Clinton campaign. Papadopoulos later passed along this information from Mifsud to Alexander Downer

Beto O’Rourke Is the National Democrat
of Texas, But Will That Help Him Win?
Texas Monthly, by R. G. Ratcliffe    Original Article

Someone needs to tell Beto O’Rourke that he secured his party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate months ago. He’s still running as the National Democrat of Texas, while Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and his allies are building a campaign to crush him in November. With his youthful drive, O’Rourke has drawn large crowds of Democrats to rallies across Texas and generated national media coverage that he converted into a record fundraising haul of $23.5 million through the end of June. But only 40 percent of O’Rourke’s total of $23.5 million raised is itemized money from Texans.

VATICAN CITY — A 2006 letter from a top Vatican official confirms that the Holy See received information in 2000 about the sexual misconduct of now-resigned U.S. cardinal, lending credibility to bombshell accusations of a cover-up at the highest echelons of the Roman Catholic Church. Catholic News Service, the news agency of the U.S. bishops´ conference, published the letter Friday from then-Archbishop Leonardo Sandri to the Rev. Boniface Ramsay, a New York priest who made the initial allegation. Ramsay informed the Vatican in a November 2000 letter about then Cardinal Theodore McCarrick´s misconduct with seminarians

Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Examiner about a report from the Committee to Protect Journalists laying out the Obama administration’s “paranoid” attacks on the media and leakers, including the use of lie-detector tests on its own staffers: Should President Trump need a model to use to track down leakers inside his administration like the “anonymous” insider who challenged his authority in a New York Times op-ed, he need go no further back than the Obama administration that prosecuted leakers and shutout the media.According to reports at the time from even New York Times journalists, no administration was tougher on

Fact Check: Obama’s Speech Attacking

President Barack Obama returned to the political fray on Friday morning, delivering a speech at the University of Illinois, which gave him an award for “ethics in government. Leaving aside, for now, the question of whether Obama deserved an ethics award, all should agree that the University of Illinois had no business giving one. That corrupt institution hoped to use Obama’s speech to rewrite history — as did Obama, who portrayed a false and fanciful portrait of America, then and now.The entire speech was based on a false conceit.

A federal judge has ordered 32 counties statewide to provide sample ballots in Spanish to accommodate thousands of Puerto Ricans who moved to Florida after Hurricane Maria. Federal Judge Mark Walker issued an order Friday, calling English-language ballots a detriment to voters who only speak Spanish. "Voting in a language you do not understand is like asking this Court decide the winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry — ineffective, in other words," Walker said in the opinion. The lawsuit was filed by a coalition of groups that advocate for civic engagement for Latino voters against the Department of State

The former part-time volunteer Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos has been sentenced today to 14 days in prison for lying to FBI investigators about the timing of his contact with the sketchy Maltese professor Joseph Misfud. Special Counsel Robert Mueller had recommended 30 days in prison. (Snip)Papadopoulos pleaded guilty in October 2017 to lying to FBI agents about the timing and significance of his contacts with Russians, including a professor who told him the Russians had “dirt” on Trump’s Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

The 2018 Mid-Term elections are sixty days away. Today, September 7th, if traditional institutional protocols are followed, is the technical end of any opportunity for FBI and DOJ to publicly release any investigative material that would influence the political landscape.While it is unknown if Special Counsel Robert Mueller will follow the customary tradition within the 60 day window, it is virtually guaranteed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will.

A marred confirmation hearing

The hearing involving Judge Kavanaugh has provided the American public with a firsthand glimpse of the confirmation process in action. While the hearing was supposed to provide the senators with an opportunity to question Judge Kavanaugh about his thoughts on different issues (some have done this), it has (so far) been marred by childish and partisan conduct embarrassing for the participants and the country as a whole. "In past hearings, the questions have centered around the nominee´s legal qualifications, decisions as a judge, positions on political issues, interpretations of the Constitution, general legal philosophy and current legal controversies." These are




´Handmaid´s Tale´ protests are just theater—

When I saw the images of women in red robes and white bonnets protesting the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the first thing I thought of was, where do they buy those silly getups? (Apparently you can get them at Spirit Halloween for $37.) The next thing I thought of, gazing at the photo of nine robed women, was that it was seven men in black robes who brought us to this ludicrous and polarizing moment in our nation’s history. Those seven men in robes — belonging to the now much-maligned group known, collectively and pejoratively,

The presidents of Iran and Russia have backed a military offensive to retake the last rebel-held area of Syria, as Turkey´s president pled for a ceasefire in perhaps the final chance to avoid what activists warn will be a humanitarian disaster. A trilateral summit in Tehran between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had been viewed as a chance for a diplomatic solution before unleashing a full-scale assault on Syria´s northwestern Idlib province. Instead, Friday´s summit further highlighted the stark differences between allies of convenience in

The newly appointed Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun, will travel to Asia next week to meet with counterparts in Beijing, Seoul, and Tokyo to discuss denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. As the Trump administration works to mitigate the nuclear threat posed by Kim Jong Un, North Korea has other dangerous tricks up its sleeve: cyberattacks and chemical weapons. Although they tend to occupy less space in the public imagination – no mushroom clouds and not nearly as many blockbuster movies – and lack the same capacity for devastating destruction, cyberattacks and chemical and biological

Last Wednesday, the FDA threw its hat into California’s eternal does-or-doesn’t-coffee-cause-cancer fight. “Requiring a cancer warning on coffee, based on the presence of acrylamide, would be more likely to mislead consumers than to inform,” the federal agency’s statement read. That’s because scientists are in near uniform agreement that coffee doesn’t cause cancer – its safety is reinforced by some of the most comprehensive data available. But since coffee contains a chemical called acrylamide, California´s Proposition 65 law requires the beverages to bear a warning. The law is broken, and its inconsistency is just part

This election is a tale of two chambers. In the House, Democrats are primed to make large gains, sweeping into a majority thanks to suburban voters who are sick of President Donald Trump’s antics. In the Senate, on the other hand, the Republicans appear to be in good shape, thanks to a highly favorable map that includes such GOP pickup opportunities as North Dakota, Missouri, Florida, and New Jersey. Wait . . . New Jersey? No, that is not a typo, nor is it a fever dream of a conservative deeply invested in the idea of keeping Chuck Schumer in the minority. New Jersey may very well be in play this year because the Democrats

"I’ve decided not to seek reelection.” These words are spoken far too seldom in American politics, but few have spoken them with better reason than Rahm Emanuel. In his nearly eight years as Chicago’s mayor, he has failed by almost any metric. He was once a rising star of Democratic politics. Emanuel served as senior adviser in the Clinton White House, caucus chairman in the House of Representatives, and Barack Obama’s first chief of staff. When he won the mayoralty of Chicago, Emanuel was commonly talked about as a potential presidential contender. He may still entertain

The US Air Force is looking into Elon Musk after he smoked marijuana during a wild, rambling two-and-a-half-hour podcast streamed live onto YouTube, it emerged on Friday. Marijuana use is prohibited for people with government security clearance, which Musk gained in 2015 when his company SpaceX started launching satellites for the Pentagon. The US Air Force told DailyMail.com a formal investigation is not underway at this time, but would not rule out that members of the department were looking into the incident. An Air Force source confirmed to CNBC that staff were examining the podcast.

The total cost of the trips, not including the officers´ overtime, topped $28,000.

Obama cracks up with Trump
Derangement Syndrome

On September 7, Barack Obama gave a speech in Illinois bitterly attacking President Trump and talking about his favorite subjects: himself and slavery. Obama is angry. He called on his followers to get out and vote in November to defeat Trump. He is angry that the voters rejected him in 2016 by electing Trump instead of Hillary. He knows that this was a rejection of his policies, and more importantly, it was a rejection of Obama personally. Obama cannot accept this. He and Joe Biden campaigned for Hillary daily, and Obama even said he would take it as a personal insult if black voters didn´t vote for Hillary.

Cory Booker is Spartacus! Cory Booker is the Saint of Newark. Cory Booker is your friend. Wait long enough, and Cory Booker can be your hero, too. This week, the future presidential candidate defiantly claimed to put his Senate job on the line during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh, announcing that he would illegally release confidential emails sent by the nominee in 2001 and 2002 concerning racial profiling — a topic that could potentially derail the president’s pick. Never mind that the emails weren’t confidential or that the documents merely demonstrated that Kavanaugh had expressed
