Judge Neil Gorsuch’s former law student who is accusing the Supreme Court nominee of encouraging firms to engage in sexist and possibly illegal hiring practices has close ties to the Democratic Party, The Daily Signal has learned. Jennifer Sisk, a 2016 graduate of the University of Colorado Law School, wrote a scathing letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sunday. In the letter, Sisk detailed her account of Gorsuch’s telling his law students that “many” women manipulate their employer’s maternity benefits after giving birth. Multiple media outlets including NBC News, NPR, and Think Progress first reported on this allegation without any mention
#5, I disagree...Libtard law firms will be lining up to offer her a plum position, IMHO.
Just like the liberal prof at Mizzou, who made a fool of herself inciting rioters at the infamous student protests. ("We need more manpower over here!!") She was fired, and now has been hired @ liberal Gonzaga U.
Come on folks. This woman is an attorney. Veracity, integrity and the such are to be avoided like the plague, but always impersonated. No one does it better than an attorney, of any gender of which there are now many to choose.
Even if he didn´t say it, the fact remains that many women use the maternity leave to pay for their time off, and once it runs out, they never return to their former employer. It´s just how life works.
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., made headlines this week when he told reporters the intelligence community incidentally collected information on Donald Trump´s transition team following the Nov. 8 election. The congressman´s surprise claim raises many questions, including whether the alleged collection was legal and who was involved. As the issue is a confusing one that likely won´t disappear anytime soon, I´ve compiled a list of the 11 questions you most likely have about this chapter in the ongoing saga involving Trump and the intelligence community: 1. Who is Congressman Devin Nunes? Nunes is chairman of the House Select Intelligence Committee,
Autoplay: On | Off Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, argued Thursday that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has made it very difficult for all future Supreme Court nominees to move in the Senate because he thinks the ideology of the nominees is enough of a reason to vote them down. "I wish he had a chance to see [Neil] Gorsuch over the past two days, and anybody observing that is quite seriously voting against him just for political reasons. That´s the conclusion I come to," Grassley said, referring to Gorsuch´s hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I think that we´ve heard Sen.
The Secret Service is bracing for the impending appointment of a new director with a senior military rank, the first time an agency chief would come from outside the service in modern history. Agents and officers are expecting Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marine general and former head of U.S. Central Command, to tap another general to head the Secret Service and help reform the agency and impose more rigorous and even-handed discipline, according to two knowledgeable sources. President Trump´s appointment of a general to the top Secret Service post, at the behest of Kelly, is expected
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is calling on his GOP colleagues on Capitol Hill to move forward with the Trump administration’s plan to overhaul the nation’s health care system. “House members need to vote to repeal Obamacare today,” Mr. Walker said Friday on Twitter. “This is their chance to move process forward to get rid of the collapsing govt program.” Mr. Walker is chairman of the Republican Governors Association and also has strong ties to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, who, along with President Trump, is lobbying lawmakers to get behind the Republican plan to move the nation away from Obamacare.
The head of the Department of Health said Friday he believes President Trump will follow through on his plan to move on to other issues if the GOP’s health care bill dies in the House. “Well, I think this bill is going to pass today, but I would take the president at his word,” Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I think he has done as much as anyone could expect a president to do to get a piece of legislation passed.” Mr. Trump and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan are urging
Indonesian police fired tear gas on Friday to disperse hard-line Muslims protesting against the construction of a Catholic church in a satellite city of the capital, Jakarta. Several hundred protesters from a group called Forum for Bekasi Muslim Friendship staged a rowdy demonstration in front of the Santa Clara church in Kaliabang, a neighborhood of Bekasi city, after Friday prayers. Witnesses said police fired tear gas as the protesters tried to force their way into the church, which has been under construction since November. Some also threw rocks and bottles into the site. Raymundus Sianipar, a Catholic priest, said police
A day after a terror attack in his city left three people dead and as many as 40 wounded, London Mayor Sadiq Khan says he has more important things to do than respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr. Wednesday, President Trump´s son tweeted, "You have to be kidding me?!" in response Khan´s assertion in 2016 to The Independent newspaper that terror attacks are "part and parcel" of living in a major city. "I´m not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr.," Khan told CNN´s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday. "I´ve been doing far more important things
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus went to the White House today for their first official meeting with President Donald Trump. The meeting, which comes five weeks after Trump asked a reporter at a press conference to help set up a discussion with the group, was organized primarily to discuss Trump’s new budget proposal, which Chairman Cedric Richmond, D-Louisiana, said at a press conference this afternoon would be “devastating” for the African-American community. Rep. Karen Bass, D-California, said that the group raised “several areas of concern” but added that it was a “positive first start.” According to Bass
American couple Kurt and Melissa Cochran were out for a romantic afternoon stroll across the River Thames on Wednesday to wrap up a dream tour of Europe for their 25th anniversary. At the same time, homegrown terrorist Khalid Masood was behind the wheel of a rented Hyundai barreling toward the span, bent on death and destruction. The couple from Utah never had a chance. The impact sent Kurt, a 54-year-old musician, plunging to his death onto a stone landing below the walkway. Melissa, 46, was left splayed out on the roadway, with a broken leg and rib and blood
The top U.S. general in Europe told lawmakers Thursday that he sees evidence Russia might be supplying the Taliban in an effort to undermine the United States, in what could be a significant turning point in the Afghanistan conflict. "I´ve seen the influence of Russia of late, increased influence in terms of association and perhaps even supply to the Taliban," Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, the head of the U.S. military´s European Command and the Supreme Allied Commander for NATO, told the Senate Armed Services Committee. Scaparotti did not specify what Moscow may have been supplying to the insurgents. Until now,
When it comes to repealing and replacing Obamacare, defenders of President Barack Obama´s signature domestic law constantly ask, "What about those with pre-existing illnesses?" After all, the most popular feature of Obamacare is that it prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage because an applicant has a pre-existing illness. And President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan insist that those with pre-existing conditions will be covered. But by agreeing with Obama on the issue of pre-existing illnesses, by promising to replace Obamacare "with something better," Republicans are making a massive concession: That access to health care insurance should be guaranteed by
It’s been a while since I’ve agreed with the Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, but he’s spot on here: [snip] Indeed, Speaker Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) could do worse than cancel the floor vote today on the American Health Care Act (a.k.a. RINOcare). In fact, expect the vote to be cancelled if the GOP leadership is far short of the 216 votes needed to pass RINOcare. If the vote goes forward, then they either have the votes or are just a handful away and will try to twist some arms on the House floor. How many votes the GOP leadership has is
Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
Chelsea Clinton´s chief of staff complained on Thursday that her boss just can´t catch a break. Bari Lurie is Clinton´s chief of staff at the Clinton Foundation, where the former first daughter is vice chair. Lurie took to Twitter on Thursday to lament that Clinton, like her mother, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, "never gets a break." (Tweet) The tweet included a link to a op-ed published Thursday in the Los Angeles Times, titled "Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break." The article´s author, Ann Friedman, defends Clinton from her critics, arguing that she and her
British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,
In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to
Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
Last night on his eponymous Fox News program, Tucker Carlson interviewed David Moyse, an attorney hired to defend 18 year-old Henry Sanchez-Milian, who is in this country illegally, against a charge of rape against a 14 year old girl in a bathroom at a Rockville, MD, high school. Moyse is one of those youngish (in his 30s) lawyers who gets himself on lists of up-and-comers, like this one, and is a name partner in a criminal defense firm.In going on TV to make the case for his client, Counselor Moyse found himself being cross-examined and saying something he soon had
Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and
Freedom Watch notifies congress of a “Deep State” intelligence community whistle blower, Dennis Montgomery, with hundreds of millions of documents showing CIA and FBI and Intelligence Committees were spying on, and conducting surveillance on, American citizens for political purposes. Mr. Montgomery is trying to use a legal “whistle-blower” process and not follow the same approach as Edward Snowden. (Photos/Copy of letter)
