    Democrat Senators Throw A Tantrum Over Brett Kavanaugh [VIDEO]

    On day one of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, Democrat senators employed toddler-style tactics in an effort to interrupt the proceedings.

    Democratic senators employed toddler-style tactics Tuesday to disrupt the first day of hearings on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    While Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) was attempting to make his opening remarks in the confirmation hearing, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) repeatedly attempted to interrupt the committee chairman in an effort to stall the hearings. When he didn’t give her floor time, Harris proceeded to talk over him.

    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-N.Y.) called the hearing a “charade and a mockery of our norms,” just before several protestors began screaming unintelligibly and making howling noises.

    FBI Disputes Claim That DOJ Used Leaked Stories It Planted To Get FISA Warrants

    An FBI agent reportedly told Congress behind closed doors the feds used the stories to justify spying on the Trump campaign.

    UPDATE: The FBI is disputing claims that the bureau leaked information to news media and then used those same stories in their applications to obtain a warrant to surveil members of the Trump campaign throughout the 2016 election.

    An earlier version of a story published by the Daily Caller News Foundation reported that FBI Special Agent Jonathan Moffa told members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees in a closed-door session on Friday that “the FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press and then used stories from the press as justifications for FISA warrants.”

    The FBI has disputed this account of Moffa’s testimony, saying that it’s “not true,” an FBI official said.

  • Why Reading Jane Austen Is Essential To Understanding Virtue And Vice

    Why Reading Jane Austen Is Essential To Understanding Virtue And Vice

    Virtues like courage and moderation are character traits that reveal themselves when one is faced with great adversity or great pleasure.

    In the first lecture of Hillsdale College’s free online Young Jane Austen course (which you can take along with me here), Larry Arnn explains why it’s important to study literature in order to understand the nature of mankind.

    History and Literature Explain Aspects of Human Nature

    In Jane Austen’s works “Pride and Prejudice” and “Sense and Sensibility” events unfold through the perspective of young women who learn about the natures of vice and virtue as they study and contemplate the characters of those around them in order to triumph over their own adversities.

  • Federal Judge Denies CNN Request To Dox Jurors In Manafort Trial

    Federal Judge Denies CNN Request To Dox Jurors In Manafort Trial

    U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis has denied a motion members of the media filed to reveal the identities and home addresses of the members of the jury on the trial involving former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

    “I don’t feel right if I release their names,” he said, adding that he has also faced threats for his role in the trial, according to The Hill.

    Ellis also denied the media’s request to make sealed sidebar transcripts public, although he added that much of those transcripts will be made public after the trial. Ellis explained that one aspect of the transcripts will remain sealed so as not to interfere with Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into whether Trump campaign officials colluded with Russian officials to steal the presidency from Hillary Clinton.

    Sen. Bill Nelson Admits He Has No Evidence Of 2018 Election Hacking

    Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson claimed the Florida voting system had been compromised by Russians, but now he’s backpedaling that claim.

    Last week, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson claimed that the Florida voting system had been compromised by Russians leading up to the 2018 elections. But on Tuesday, the Florida senator distanced himself from his earlier claim, blaming the political climate for his inconsistent statements.

    Last month, Nelson and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio co-authored a letter they sent to 67 county election supervisors within the state, urging them to be vigilant and warning them of potential threats in November. This letter did not state that voting systems had been “penetrated” by the Russians, as Nelson claimed last week.

  • CNN Sued The Government For Names, Addresses Of Manafort Jurors

    CNN Sued The Government For Names, Addresses Of Manafort Jurors

    The anti-Trump cable news network has a long history of doxxing threats and harassment.

    In a motion filed in federal court on Thursday, CNN and several other media outlets requested that the court release the names and home addresses of all jurors in the Paul Manafort fraud case. Jurors haven not yet rendered a verdict on any of the 18 charges against Manafort, who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s campaign manager in 2016.

    The motion — filed on behalf of CNN, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, POLITICO, New York Times, NBC Universal, and the Associated Press — asks the court to provide to the media organizations the full names and home addresses of the men and women who were summoned and selected by the federal government to serve as jurors in Manafort’s fraud case.

    Thousands Cheer As Argentina’s Senate Votes Against Legalizing Abortion

    Argentina’s Senate voted against legalizing abortion on Thursday in a 38-31 vote, prompting riots and cheers in Buenos Aires from assembled pro-life and pro-abortion demonstrators.

    Demonstrators in favor of the bill, which would have legalized abortion up to 14 weeks of pregnancy, reportedly threw bottles at police and started fires outside of government buildings when it was voted down in the Senate.

    Pro-life demonstrators rejoiced at the news. Thousands who stood in the cold to watch as the votes were cast cheered when news broke that current abortion restrictions, which allow the practice only in cases of rape or when it threatens the life of the mother, would remain in place.

    Jim Acosta Is Okay With Bullying A Woman If She’s Sarah Sanders

    At Thursday’s White House press briefing, CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to bully Sarah Huckabee Sanders into parroting a line after him as if she were a six-year-old child. When she refused, he stormed out of the room and angrily tweeted about it.

    In case you missed the past 48 hours of wall-to-wall media coverage, Acosta was heckled by Trump supporters at a rally the president spoke at in Tampa, Florida. While the White House correspondent was trying to do a standup report from the scene, rally-goers yelled “CNN SUCKS!” and other rude things at Acosta. For two days he was salty about it and tweeted that “the press is not the enemy,” a line  later repeated in the form of a question to Ivanka Trump at an event.

    We Knew About Her Racism, We Don’t Care

    In a statement released Thursday, The New York Times defended its most recent hire, Sarah Jeong, saying the newspaper of record knew about her history of racist tweets and hired her anyway.

    As The Federalist reported this morning, Jeong has repeatedly said disparaging things about white people, such as that they are “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins,” among other things, but this did not stop The New York Times from hiring her as the lead technology writer for its editorial board.

    Watch Ocasio-Cortez Totally Fail At Explaining How To Pay For Socialism

    In an interview with Trevor Noah on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Thursday night, candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tried to explain how the United States would pay for all of the entitlements the self-described democratic socialist has campaigned on — including fully taxpayer-sponsored Medicare, college tuition, and housing.

    “If people pay their fair share, if corporations and the ultra wealthy, for example, as Warren Buffett likes to say, if he pays as much as his secretary paid, a 15 percent tax rate, if corporations paid, if we reverse the tax bill, raised our corporate tax rate to 28 percent– which is not even as high as it was before — if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that’s $2 trillion right there,” she said.

  • Liberal Ninth Circuit Says Open-Carrying A Gun Is A Constitutional Right

    Liberal Ninth Circuit Says Open-Carrying A Gun Is A Constitutional Right

    The ultra-liberal and frequently overturned U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit just ruled that the Second Amendment protects one’s right to carry a gun openly outside of the home.

    “We do not take lightly the problem of gun violence,” the majority opinion in Young v. Hawaii reads. Here’s more, emphasis added.

    For better or for worse, the Second Amendment does protect a right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense. We would thus flout the Constitution if we were to hold that, ‘in regulating the manner of bearing arms, the authority of [the State] has no other limit than its own discretion.’ Reid, 1 Ala.

  • How The Peloponnesian War Brought Athens' Golden Age To An End

    How The Peloponnesian War Brought Athens’ Golden Age To An End

    In the seventh lecture of Hillsdale College’s course on the histories of Athens and Sparta, which you can follow along with me here, Victor Davis Hanson, a history fellow at Hillsdale College, explains how the Peloponnesian War brought Athens’ golden age to an end.

    To understand why the Greek city states fought amongst one another to the brink of imploding, one must turn to Thucydides’s account of the war to understand the causes and the context of the conflict. Thucydides, a Greek historian who lived through and chronicled the Peloponnesian War as an Athenian general, developed the idea of the 27-year-long period of intermittent conflicts and battles between the two city-states as being a singular war.

    Democrat Super Lobbyist Gets Immunity To Testify Against Manafort

    Fox News’s Tucker Carlson reported exclusively on Thursday night that Robert Mueller has offered Tony Podesta, the brother of a longtime friend to Hillary Clinton, immunity to testify against his business partner, Paul Manafort.

    FBI special counsel Mueller, who has been tasked with the ongoing investigation into whether Trump’s campaign associates colluded with Russian officials to steal the election from Hillary Clinton,  filed a 32-count indictment against Manafort earlier this year, charging him with tax evasion, bank fraud, and failing to register as a foreign agent, among other things. Manafort, who has pled not guilty, is in jail awaiting trial.

    Watch ‘The View’ Devolve Into Chaos Between Whoopi And Jeanine Pirro

    Whoopi Goldberg and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro got into a screaming match with one another over Donald Trump during a segment of ABC’s “The View” today.

    “You’re suffering from Trump derangement in this room,” Pirro says, pointing at Whoopi.

    “Did you just point at me?” Whoopi asks.

    “Yesssss!” Pirro replies.

    “Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement,” Whoopi says. “Let me tell you what I have. I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.’”

    “Listen, I’m 62 years old,” she continues. “There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with.
