Kavanaugh report shows why the
presumption of innocence is key

The Hill, by Thomas Jipping

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/8/2018 9:37:05 AM

“All the presumptions of law independent of evidence are in favor of innocence,” the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts said in 1850. “Every person is presumed to be innocent until he is proved guilty.” (Snip) One of the most disturbing things to emerge from the failed campaign to keep Justice Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court is the willingness of some, including powerful senators, to abandon this human right. They gambled that, by weaponizing sordid gossip, they could simply bully their way past the presumption of innocence. That is why the principle is innocent until “proven” guilty, not

Comments:
Proven guilty, not accused guilty.

You won’t hear Democrats talking about the Kavanaugh report… 414 pages of Dem chicanery carried to the level of institutional corruption.

I am 100 percent pro-Kavanaugh, but our side keeps getting one thing wrong. Testimony -- including the testimony of accusers -- is "evidence." The problem is that the testimony of the accuser was negated by the testimony of Kavanaugh. And, there was no other evidence to tip the balance away from the presumption of innocence. In fact, the opposite was true. Everyone she named as a corroborating witness either failed to support her, or contradicted her.

Why they hate Matthew Whitaker

On the surface, Democrats going all in to fight the appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general makes little sense. It is perfectly legal. Republicans control the Senate which confirms nominations. Going after Brett Kavanaugh backfired. But Sundance at the Last Refuge (aka, Conservative Treehouse) offered evidence that Whitaker has given them cause by exposing Democrat skulduggery in the Department of Justice. As chief of staff, Whitaker had access to everything that crossed the desk of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sundance thinks Whitaker leaked stories to reporters that embarrassed Democrats, and asked eight questions:

Pete Gust took a picture of his son and about 60 other high school senior boys on the steps outside the Sauk County Courthouse in Baraboo, Wisconsin. He told them to wave to their parents. Then he posted the photo online. Nazi Salute! Jules Suzdaltsev of Vice Media declared. (Tweet)And now the police are investigating, the high school is investigating, and the father who took the photo is apologizing.(Snip)The boys have joined the Duke lacrosse team and Brett Kavanaugh´s boofing brothers in being unfairly maligned.

CNN’s Acosta vs Trump White
House Lawsuit Reads Like It

CNN, apparently not satisfied with merely having nearly cornered the market on fake news, is going for the most incompetent news network as well. Most have likely heard about its attempt to sue the Trump White House (and a Secret Service agent—stay classy, CNN) for having revoked bratty correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass. Funny thing is, that lawsuit is now exposing CNN for how little it actually knows about anything—including the U.S. Constitution, the truth, and basic good manners.(Snip) CNN and Jim Acosta’s lawsuit against the White House, which alleges First and Fifth Amendment violations, contains several factual inaccuracies.

Florida Recount Chugs Along as
More Irregularities Surface

Florida’s election recount is chugging along as more irregularities are uncovered and a judge asked the warring sides to “ramp down the rhetoric,” saying it erodes public confidence in the election for Senate and governor. One county revealed Monday that it had allowed some hurricane-displaced voters to cast their ballots by email — a violation of state law. Another had to restart its recount after getting about a quarter finished because someone forgot to push a button. And in oft-criticized Broward County, additional sheriff’s deputies were sent to guard ballots and voting machines, even though a judge

This week could go down in history as the time so-called journalists finally embarrassed themselves beyond all redemption. While nothing could top CNN’s Jim Acosta making a complete fool of himself at a presidential press conference, Vogue magazine ran a close second for publishing a patronizing story titled “Why Do White Women Keep Voting for the GOP and Against Their Own Interests?” Yet again, the liberal media elite attempt to explain away those pesky Republican women who just don’t seem to get it, especially the overwhelming number of white women who voted for Republican Brian Kemp

Fox News Channel announced Wednesday it will support CNN’s lawsuit against the White House over the temporary suspension of White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” press credential, revealing the company will file an amicus brief in defense of the partisan network. Fox News issued a statement accusing the White House of “weaponizing” Secret Service passes for reporters: FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized.

Arizona Illustrates the RINO Revenge
American Greatness, by Henry Olsen    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 11/14/2018 7:45:42     Post Reply
Arizona’s Senate race was perhaps the most surprising, and disturbing, midterm result for Republicans and Trump fans. Many struggle to understand how Barry Goldwater’s home state will send a former pink tutu-wearing antiwar activist to Washington. The answer is instructive regarding what Trump Republicanism must do to build a majority. The biggest reason Martha McSally lost is the same reason Republicans lost control of the House: RINOs. Across the nation, moderate college-educated independents who had frequently backed Republicans in prior elections switched sides. We can see this trend both in the Arizona exit polls and the results reported to date.

Mueller Grand Jury Witness Accuses
Clinton-Linked Prosecutor Of
Conflict Of Interest

An attorney who appeared as a witness before the Mueller grand jury is accusing the special counsel’s office of a conflict of interest because one of the prosecutors involved in the special counsel’s case has worked for Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. (Snip) Rhee questioned Tyler Nixon, an attorney for Stone, just before his grand jury appearance on Nov. 2. “[Rhee’s involvement] was not disclosed to me prior to my testimony, and I find this to be deeply troubling and certainly Ms. Rhee should be recused or removed from the investigation,” Nixon told TheDCNF.

The Prime Minister has betrayed the principles of Brexit and is subjecting the United Kingdom to political slavery at the hands of Brussels, Brexiteers have said, as the details of the Prime Minister’s deal leaked to Irish media Tuesday afternoon. Brexiteers within the Conservative party met Tuesday as the news emerged of a “technical level” agreement emerged — apparently leaked to Irish journalists sympathetic to the European Union but not to figures within the United Kingdom — and spoke of launching a “coup” against the Prime Minister, Britain’s The Times reported in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Five million poor Central Americans want to migrate into the United States’ communities and workplaces, according to a report by Gallup. The caravans of economic migrants moving northwards to the U.S. border “actually represent a relatively small fragment of a much larger group of people in their own region — and around the world — who say they would like to move to the U.S. if they could,” said Gallup. The five million number is one-in-three adults in Central America, the survey firm said.

An illegal alien accused of killing three people has been a recipient of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program, immigration officials say. A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson told the Springfield News-Leader that Luis Rodrigo Perez, 23, a Mexican national accused of killing three people in Missouri after jail officials released him on domestic violence charges in New Jersey, was a recipient of the DACA program in 2012 and 2014. It is unclear whether he was no longer eligible or did not re-apply for the program in 2016.

Democrats netted another Senate seat Monday night after Republican Martha McSally conceded Arizona’s race to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

Republicans, meanwhile, netted three seats are their candidate is leading — though facing a recount — in a fourth race, in Florida. With her victory Ms. Sinema becomes the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in Arizona in nearly a quarter century. She’s also the first openly bisexual person to be elected to the Senate, gay-rights group Human Rights Campaign said.

Protesters are calling on Democratic leaders to put forward a “Green New Deal” that includes a swift transition to 100 percent renewable energy in line with findings of a recent report on climate change by United Nations. Some protesters were being arrested Tuesday after refusing to leave a hallway outside Pelosi’s office.

Christine Blasey Ford is no longer in the headlines, but she’s still collecting cash through GoFundMe accounts set up by friends and fans who wanted to show their support for her attempt to derail Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s path to the Supreme Court. As of Monday, more than $850,000 had been pledged to the two biggest online solicitations, with one of them, personally blessed by Ms. Blasey Ford, still raking in more than $4,000 over the weekend. The organizers of the funds have been strikingly secretive about their operations, declining to respond to messages about the cash they’ve raised.

The election results for Arizona are in, and Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema has won, winning the seat held by outgoing Republican Sen. Jeff Flake. It´s a puzzling result, not the least because the vote count took a week. In mitigation, there were far fewer warnings of fraud than we are currently seeing in Florida, and the delay was solely the result of 640,000 mail-in ballots that had yet to be counted. (snip) McSally may have lowered her own voters´ enthusiasm factor by acting standoffish from Donald Trump at first
