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 […]

Cory Booker Stunner: 17-Year Olds Too Immature to Be Held Accountable for Actions

 

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has a very interesting view of Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged actions. You might even call this a “Spartacus” moment for the Senator, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. As the world knows, Judge Kavanaugh, 17 years old at the time, is being accused of assaulting a 15-year-old Christine Blasey (now […]

Notes From an Intergalactic Freakshow

 

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Sen. John Kennedy (R-Louisiana) referred to the mess the Senate Judiciary Committee on which he sits had become as an “intergalactic freakshow.” “I’m fairly confident that our Founding Fathers did not intend the process to work this way,” said Kennedy of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. “The only thing missing was […]

When Will Cardinal Wuerl Let Me Return to Mass?

 

I wrote last week about Cardinal Wuerl’s decree that I be included, Willie Horton-style, in a wanted poster at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. He instructed his security guards to call police “immediately” upon seeing me at the Shrine. In the past, his ass-kissing goons, such as auxiliary bishop Barry […]

Letters From Catholic Mothers (Part III)

 

Today we present our third installment of letters from mothers living in the diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina. (For part one, click here; part two, here.) These faithful Catholics have drawn the line and expect real leadership from their bishop, a sentiment Brittany Makely, author of today’s missive, couldn’t be more clear in expressing. The […]

Let Sleeping Radioactivity Lie

 

Leaders always like having something new to brag about and put their own name on. You don’t get a lot of cheers by saying, “Let’s just keep doing what we’re doing,” even though sometimes staying the course is the best plan. Just because an idea is new doesn’t mean it’s better, and just because an idea is […]

Dirty, Dirty Dirt

 

“Dirt is dirtier than clean is clean,” observes one of John O’Hara’s characters — a history prof, I think — remarking on the observed partiality of the human race for darkness and grime in their news diet, over sweetness and light. Note the uproar over Brett Kavanaugh’s behavior — nice or nasty — at a […]

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 […]

Sabotaging Trump on Iran’s Behalf

 

Just two weeks shy of 77 years after Neville Chamberlain returned from his Munich meeting with Adolf Hitler, waving an agreement he said guaranteed “peace for our time,” then-president Barack Obama proclaimed that his new deal with Iran would block “every pathway” Iran had to obtain nuclear weapons. Called the “Joint Cooperative Plan of Action” […]

On Spartacus and Crucifixion, Democrats and Kavanaugh, and Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

 

I rarely publish political or social commentary during the Jewish Holy Season. I just do not have the time. Not only do I have a law practice of twenty-plus years, a second simultaneous career of fifteen years as an adjunct professor of law, a family and friends, and a Yankees team to sweat over while […]
