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.
One tea party leader is still looking for answers from the IRS. Lawyers for Lois Lerner, who resigned under fire as a division chief at the Internal Revenue Service, argue that more details of her reported targeting of tea party groups should not be revealed because her safety is in danger. But Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote, a nonpartisan organization dedicated to election integrity, said she wants to see such documentation released. True the Vote was one of hundreds of conservative, nowsnprofit organizations whose applications for tax-exempt status were unfairly slowed or spiked by the IRS, and Engelbrecht said she
The U.S. has long used international broadcasting as a tool in public diplomacy. Yet the nation’s international broadcasting agency—the Broadcasting Board of Governors—has been a distinct, freestanding agency within the U.S. government since the International Broadcasting Act of 1994. The reason often given for this independence is a fear of political influence from either the State Department or the White House. It is assumed they cannot be trusted to keep their hands off the news broadcasts. Ironically, the greater risk may not come from within Washington, but from abroad, where foreign governments can use the threat of denying visas or
On Tuesday, former CIA Director John Brennan dropped multiple bombshells on Democrats hoping to squeeze information from him that would confirm any collusion or attempted obstruction of justice by the Trump administration with regard to Russian manipulation in the 2016 election. Democrats failed signally in their goal. [snip] First, Brennan told House lawmakers that the plethora of leaks coming from the Trump intelligence community “hurts our national security, compromises our intelligence capabilities, and needs to be investigated, needs to stop.” The statement throws a wrench into the gears of Democratic conspiracy-mongering – Democrats say that leaks are just a way of
British indie rock legend Morrissey tore into the leaders of his country Tuesday for their apparent hypocrisy and inaction in the wake of the deadly Manchester terror attack. In a post published to his official Facebook page, Morrissey — whose full name is Steven Patrick Morrissey — expressed his “monumental” anger at British leaders who talk tough, but do nothing to stop future terror attacks. “For what reason will this ever stop?” the former Smiths frontman said after noting the attack, which struck an Ariana Grande concert and left 22 dead, occurred while he was celebrating his birthday. He first turned his ire
No exception to the perennial folly of American administrations, regardless of party, President Trump dreams of forging peace between Israel, our ally in the Western democratic tradition, and the Palestinians, an amalgam of sharia supremacists and hard-Left kleptocrats, for whom the obliteration of the Jewish State is the ne plus ultra. Thus, did the president have the misfortune of being in the company of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas when news broke of the terrorist attack targeting children and young adults at a concert in Manchester. Trump and Abbas stood side-by-side
Fox News certainly finds itself in a situation of flux in the wake of Bill O’Reilly‘s departure and adjustments to its prime time line-up, but the network is far from being out for the count. The cable news outlet slid to third in the 25-54 age demographic during a recent period of five days, its worst showing since June 2000. During the first two weeks of May 2017, however, Fox News led its competitors at CNN and MSNBC in key areas. During the week of May 1, which was the debut week for the line-up on the network, FNC was
Observe, first of all, that President Donald Trump took the battle to the enemy. By contrast, and in order to not let bygones be bygones, President Barack Obama let the enemy define the battle. The 44th president, a Democrat, took the terror out of Islam; for this, he won a Nobel Peace Prize, as the world stayed at war and came closer, during his watch, to the all-out war of civilizations that Samuel Huntington so profoundly explained would take place absent the combination of resolve and prudence that, throughout his career, he counseled. The 45th president, an Independent Republican, defined the enemy
Capping his first day in Israel on his first international trip, President Trump expressed optimism Monday about a “new level of partnership” among the US, the Jewish state and the Arab world. “There are many things that can happen now that could never have happened before,” Trump said during a visit to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s home. “We must seize them together. We must take advantage of the situation,” he told the prime minister, who welcomed him warmly and gave him a 150-year-old Bible as a present. Trump said he met many Arab leaders during his stop in Saudi Arabia, where
Last month he slapped a Kevlar helmet and flak jacket over his chinos and blue blazer and visited Baghdad to talk with Iraq’s top military leaders. This week details emerged that he played a major role organizing his father-in-law’s first foreign trip despite his lack of diplomatic experience. Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and special adviser, influences the White House in ways that send U.S. diplomats and journalists scrambling for answers. With Mr. Kushner now traveling alongside Mr. Trump on the nine-day U.S. presidential tour of holy sites in Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican, it’s no surprise that the
President Donald Trump´s trip to the Middle East and Israel has been remarkably successful. Trump became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall, he gave a rousing speech against terrorism in Saudi Arabia, and he took a strong stance for peace with Israel and its neighbors. This has brought praise for Trump from some rather unlikely corners. Here are six figures who praised the president for his Middle East trip. [snip] On Sunday, NBC News´ White House reporter Ali Vitali praised President Trump on MSNBC, explaining "his attempt to solidify personal relationships" across the Middle East and with countries like Japan
TRENTON — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that former FBI director James Comey is not a “nut job” and also criticized the hiring of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, saying he wouldn’t have let the man set foot in the White House. In a roughly 75-minute, freewheeling press conference in his state’s Capitol building, the Republican governor continued to defend President Donald Trump — but also began to put some daylight between the two men. Christie, who initially ran Trump’s transition team, said he disagreed with comments Trump reportedly made to Russian officials in which he called
There is a campaign, which ironically started in the United States, but which has now spread all over the world, to have PayPal, the internet payment processing company, extend its services to Palestine. No matter what happens, this proposal is fraught with landmines. PayPal offers its services to over 200 countries, in at least 25 currencies. So its scope is pretty much universal, with the exception of a few areas. There ia a rogue´s gallery of countries which are not connected to PayPal, but only a few. Many of those are pretty much totalitarian. The rest are prohibited because of
Climate change” and “child marriage” are “interconnected” issues, said Chelsea Clinton on Monday. Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of
Michelle Obama has been enjoying her Italian vacation in style—and got a welcome fit for a star as she and her husband visited the city of Siena, Tuscany today. The former First Lady looked especially glamorous as she stepped out in a flirty shoulder-baring top, paired with a high-waisted khaki-colored pants. Her husband, who previously went out for a scenic bike ride in the countryside, had ditched his sporty outfit for a polished shirt and pants. A massive crowd cheered after spotting the former presidential couple, with some fans yelling: ´President Obama!´ Scroll down for video The pair, who arrived in Italy Friday
While Barack was hitting the links in Tuscany, Michelle Obama was hitting the sights about 67 miles away ... and looking good in pink doing it. The former First Lady was strolling around in Montalcino, Italy this weekend -- and she appeared to be the talk of the small town. You can´t blame the locals ... she kinda stood out with the pink and white. Plus ... it´s Michelle Freakin´ Obama. She´ll always turn heads. Michelle snagged a second for herself during a food break, but then it was right back into the international spotlight. Togliti di mezzo!
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal
Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is
Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote. Calling it a “culture of exploitation,” Lewinsky blasted the environment at Fox News and other cable news outlets — where
UPDATED: June 14, 2016: The Washington Post reports "Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee." On what did the paper base this claim? The Post cites "committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach." These "security experts" are with CrowdStrike, a private cyber security firm hired and paid by the DNC. While reading the following chronology, it is important to bear in mind that the FBI has never examined the DNC computer network because the DNC prohibited the FBI from doing so. Also, that the FBI, under former Director Comey, not to mention President Obama and
Fox News dolt, Juan Williams praised the people in government who are leaking to the media in order to damage the Trump administration. He also told the leakers to call him because leakers are ‘good for democracy’. (Snip) Juan Williams: “Just give me a moment here to say if you have a leak please call me at FOX News. I’m all for leakers. I think leakers are good to contribute to democracy. I don’t think trying to undermine government but I don’t think we condemned Obama for going harshly against people who were disclosing information acting as if they were
The brother of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich wrote a letter on Tuesday to the executive producer of Sean Hannity´s Fox News show pleading with him to find "decency and kindness" in his heart and stop spreading an unproven conspiracy theory about the unsolved murder. "Think about how you would feel losing a son or brother. And while dealing with this, you had baseless accusations of your lost family member being part of a vast conspiracy," Aaron Rich wrote in the letter to "Hannity" executive producer Porter Berry, a copy of which was provided to CNN. "As the family, we
A University of Hawaii assistant math professor who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University has a new racist equation she wants to promote: white + man + job = her order for white males to quit or be demoted. Piper Harron wrote on a blog for the American Mathematical Society (AMS), titling her piece, “Get Out The Way.” Harron began with her demand: Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else.
Somebody, please explain to Jake Tapper about Arabs and the “strong horse.” Osama bin Laden explained it pretty economically years ago, but that’s a message that is difficult for liberals living in a fantasy world to grasp. After all, Barack Obama had a Muslim father, and he’s a “person of color” (one of the most annoying expressions in the English lexicon, casting Caucasians as colorless), so there must be some kumbayah, right? Jen Psaki, to whom Tapper asked his question, is in no position to explain, as she first tries to grab credit for the arms deal Trump just announced
Former FBI Director James Comey´s father says his son was fired because President Trump was "scared to death of him," according to CNN. J. Brien Comey spoke to CNN by phone on Saturday about his son´s dismissal as the nation´s top law enforcement officer. "[Comey] didn´t give him 100 percent loyalty, and he demands that of people who work with him," he said, according to CNN. "[Comey] said he would give 100 percent honesty, but not loyalty." "Why he was fired, I think, is Trump changes every day," he added. "He had three reasons three days in a row." Comey´s
