Senator Hirono Doesn´t Understand ´Corroboration,´
Won´t Condemn Attacks On Republicans

Daily Wire, by Ryan Saavedra

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/8/2018 12:30:58 PM

Democratic Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono claimed on Sunday that there was no corroborating evidence to back up Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh´s claim that he never assaulted Christine Blasey Ford and that there was corroborating evidence supporting Ford´s story (Snip) Hirono´s assertion that there was corroborating evidence that supported Ford´s story is false, as prosecutor Rachel Mitchell specifically noted in her 5-page memo on Ford´s testimony. All the witnesses Ford claims exist have "either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them." Hirono later suggested that the presumption of innocence should not apply to Kavanaugh because "this

I don´t usually make assumptions based on the "look" of a person.
This one is different, she just LOOKS like some hateful, pushy, bullying, person. One who if they don´t get their way become violent.

I wouldn´t trust this person

Why I do not wish ill will upon her family it would be interesting if a male member of her family was accused of gang rape, etc. Wondering if she would feel the same way? Yes, people in her position are dangerous when they do not understand the simple concept of innocent until proven guilty. The cornerstone of America. She needs to be aggressively challenged by those who interview her but that is not going to happen. Our candidates need to mention the rule of law so the citizens understand what the dems want to take from us.

It´s really hard to offer evidence about something that didn´t happen. For instance, there is no corroborating evidence that I have never seen bigfoot. In the instance of Justice Kavanaugh, how can he provide an alibi when his accuser can´t offer date, place, or time?

Hirono´s an attorney. She knows very well that hearsay, 30 years after an alleged event, is entirely different than corroboration. And she also knows that proving a negative (i.e. that Justice (yay!) Kavanaugh didn´t attack Ford) is impossible, especially with no date/time/place specified by the accuser. Therefore, like all the Dem senators, Hirono is weaving a distorted tale designed to mislead listeners. Democrats build their edifices on sand. And glorify flawed false heroes, e.g. Ted Kennedy, Anita Hill, Bill Clinton, Trayvon Martin, Hillary Clinton and now their new queen: Christine Ford.

Police sources: New evidence suggests
Jussie Smollett orchestrated attack
CNN, by Ryan Young and Brad Parks    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 2/16/2019 7:35:40     Post Reply
Chicago - Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault. The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of "new evidence." The sources told CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement. Smollett told authorities he was attacked early January 29 by two men who were "yelling out racial and homophobic slurs." He said one attacker put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in the aftermath of Amazon’s 25,000-job snub of the city, believes New York’s workers can do better than toiling for the internet giant. Speaking at her delayed inauguration in the Bronx, the first-year congresswoman received a raucous greeting from some 300 giddy constituents Saturday at the Renaissance School for Musical Theater and Technology. “We do not have to settle for scraps in the greatest city in the world,” said Ocasio-Cortez two days after Amazon backed off its commitment to open a new Queens facility offering thousands upon thousands of new jobs. “We did see that this

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

The Amazon blame game continued Friday with Mayor de Blasio ripping into corporate critic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying the popular Queens congresswoman is missing what it means to be a progressive. “As a progressive my entire life — and I ain’t changing — I’ll take on any progressive anywhere that thinks it’s a good idea to lose jobs and revenue because I think that’s out of touch with what working people want,” the mayor said on WNYC radio. De Blasio, a self-styled progressive with national ambitions, was an equal opportunity critic, spewing barbs at both Amazon for nixing a

Beto O’Rourke is in talks with Democratic strategists about a likely 2020 presidential run, according to two sources.

Amazon’s announcement Thursday that it is abandoning plans to construct a second corporate headquarters New York City is a catastrophic loss for the city, New York state and the metropolitan region. As a New Yorker, I find it immensely disappointing to see the immediate economic impacts and future economic losses of this unfortunate move. I wholeheartedly believe that New York is a global city that should always strive to diversify its economy and compete on the world stage. Amazon would have created more than 25,000 jobs in New York City with an average annual salary of over $150,000. The

In remarks to the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday, Sinema praised Liburdi’s credentials, describing the nominee as a “well-respected attorney” and noting his role as general counsel for Republican Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. Sinema added that while she did not share “all of the same political beliefs” as Liburdi, he was still “professionally qualified" for the role. Trump nominated Liburdi to become a judge for the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona in January. But

A new generation of Democrats is using far-reaching policy ideas and a brash social media presence to upend the party — pushing it to the left on divisive issues such as health care and climate change while it charts a path aimed at taking the White House in 2020. But the liberal shift, and the lawmakers driving it, are also creating challenges for Democrats in more-conservative areas, and they are giving President Trump and congressional Republicans fresh opportunities for political attacks. The GOP has been particularly focused in recent days on hammering Democrats over draft details of a broad

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep.
