The Real Victims of the Kavanaugh Smear

 

President Trump’s predecessor famously justified his high-handed governing style by gloating, “Elections have consequences.” That axiom, it seems, doesn’t apply when Republicans win. According to exit polls, 75 percent of those who cast ballots for Trump in 2016 said Supreme Court appointments were “either the most important or an important factor” in their votes. In other […]

Christine Blasey Ford Won’t Take ‘Yes’ for an Answer

 

Key GOP Senators who have tried to give Christine Blasey Ford the benefit of the doubt are losing patience. She keeps moving the goalpost concerning what she wants done about her claim that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her 36 years ago. In fact, her July letter to Democrat Dianne Feinstein outlining her accusations […]

Is Christine Blasey Ford Afraid to Face Kavanaugh?

 

When Christine Blasey Ford finally admitted that it was she who had leveled the uncorroborated charges of sexual assault against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she was immediately asked if she would be willing to repeat her charges under oath. Her lawyer, Democratic activist Debra Katz, claimed her client was willing to testify before Congress. However, according […]

Did Christine Blasey Ford Use Anonymity to ‘Get’ Kavanaugh?

 

If you smelled the stench of skulduggery emanating from Dianne Feinstein’s “anonymous” letter concerning sexual misconduct by SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, your nose didn’t deceive you. Feinstein has had the letter since July but waited until after Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings ended before referring it to the FBI. The Senator claimed its author had “requested confidentiality” and […]

Collins, Kavanaugh, and the Rewards of ‘Moderation’

 

We have all seen those grisly stories in the news about people who adopt dangerous predators as pets only to be torn limb from limb by the very creatures they have cosseted for years. This is analogous to what is now happening to Susan Collins. The Maine Senator has frequently curried favor with the left […]

Joe Manchin: Mountebank From the Mountain State

 

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is nervous. He’s a Democrat defending his seat in a state that President Trump carried by 41 points and his single-digit lead over GOP challenger Patrick Morrisey is shrinking. Even worse, the latest polls show his support below 50 percent while the “undecided” percentage grows. Consequently, like all Democrats with […]

Anonymous: Ye Shall Know Him by His Fruits

 

The most surprising aspect of the furor surrounding the infamous unsigned New York Times Op-Ed, ostensibly written by a member of the Trump administration, is that anyone believes its author is a senior official. Assuming this person isn’t an employee of the Times, and it is by no means unknown for the Gray Lady’s journalists to fabricate quotes […]

Senate Democrats Prove They’re Unfit to Govern 

 

During the first two days of the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee demonstrated why their party lost control of Congress, and that they still can’t be trusted with a majority in either house. In addition to interrupting the proceedings countless times on hopelessly frivolous grounds and engaging in outrageous demagoguery, […]

Pelosi Haunted by Women Her Party Suppressed

 

Nancy Pelosi recently spoke at the Public Policy Institute of California, where she repeated a story about a supernatural visitation she claims to have received in the Oval Office. Yes, you read that correctly. She says she was meeting with President Bush shortly after being elected House Minority Leader where she was joined by the […]

Trump Policies Push Obamacare Rates Down

 

The Democrats and the media have repeatedly accused President Trump and the GOP Congress of “sabotaging” Obamacare, claiming that changes to the “Affordable Care Act” would result in unprecedented premium hikes in 2019. In July, for example, Nancy Pelosi made the following claim: “Their latest assault on health care will significantly increase premiums for millions […]
