    We Went to a Pro-Kavanaugh Rally. Here’s What 8 Women Had to Say.

    [ad_1]

    An hour before it started to rain, a crowd of women gathered Thursday on Capitol Hill just before the much-anticipated Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on accusations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    Of several late-breaking accusations leveled against Kavanaugh, only one—the claim by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both teens—was the subject of the committee hearing.

    The women who attended the Concerned Women for America’s rally for Kavanaugh didn’t come to protest Kavanaugh; they mostly came to support him. READ MORE...

    Political Theater: From Kavanaugh To The Wall

    It is doubtful that there has been a more ignominious exemplification of seedy political theater in America than what is now occurring in the Washington Beltway. While I am not solely referencing the ongoing controversy over President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, this debacle could certainly be called central to the plot thereof.

    Here we have, within days of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s up-or-down vote on Kavanaugh, an individual who appeared from the shadows making allegations of sexual impropriety against the nominee. Some pundits were quick to recognize the similarity between this ploy and the craven attempts to torpedo the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas with equally feeble charges when President George H.W. Bush nominated him in 1991. READ MORE...

    The One Statement By Dr. Christine Ford That Makes Me Question All Of Her Claims

    Let me say up front that I am not in agreement that if Judge Brett Kavanaugh is not confirmed that everything goes down the tubes.  I don’t think he is an originalist or a Constitutionalist.  One could question whether he is a historical conservative.  I think there are plenty more constitutional and conservative judges that could have been put forward, and I believe the allegations, whether they are true or not, should not even be given any weight considering the amount of time it took for her to actually name the name of Judge Kavanaugh.  However, in listening to her testimony today, I was struck by one statement that she made after saying how traumatized she was because of the incident, and that statement was how she responded to Mark Judge when she encountered him six to eight weeks after the alleged attack.

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh drew praise from his defenders for his outrage at Democrats for withholding the accusation of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford only to trot it out just as the Senate Judiciary Committee was about to vote.

    “Judge Brett Kavanaugh presented powerful testimony laced with tears of this shameful attempt by Democrats to destroy him and his family. No one should be subjected to such despicable tactics. Judge Kavanaugh deserves to be confirmed,” said Mat Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel. READ MORE...

    Brett Kavanaugh Viciously Denies Ford’s Allegations & Blasts Slandering Democrat Senators In The Process

    [ad_1]

    Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh came out swinging in his opening statement following the emotional testimony of Dr. Christine Blasely Ford.  Not only did vociferously deny the allegations against him brought by Ford and other women, but he tore into Senate Democrats for their lies about him.

    Kavanaugh was visibly angry, and understandably so, called the attacks on him calculated.  All of us can fully understand that who have paid attention to the timeline.

    “I will not be intimidated by withdrawing from this process. Your coordinated and well-funded effort to destroy my good name and destroy my family will not drive me out,” Kavanaugh said. “You may defeat me in the final vote, but you’ll never get me to quit. Ever.” READ MORE...

    The civil war in Syria has killed over 100,000 civilians, displaced millions more, and produced a historic migrant crisis that affects Europe to this day. But the situation could get even worse if things go wrong in Idlib, a city in eastern Syria. We discuss with Luke Coffey of The Heritage Foundation. Plus: One Democratic senator suggests all men should “shut up,” in reference to the accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. 

    We also cover these stories:

    Trump Tightens Grip on EPA Amid Resisting Bureaucracy

    A political appointee will become the No. 2 lawyer at the Environmental Protection Agency, in a change announced Thursday aimed at ensuring that someone committed to President Donald Trump’s agenda is in charge.

    The move comes as news reports indicate parts of the federal bureaucracy—including some who had key jobs during the previous administration—have rebelled against the elected president.

    The change in who serves as EPA’s deputy general counsel also comes as the agency seeks more uniformity in legal interpretations from its regional offices across the country, The Daily Signal has learned. READ MORE...
