The Lynching of Kavanaugh

By Rich Kozlovich

Irrespective of any reporting errors about Ford that may have occurred, let's be clear as to what's actually going on here.  This is a scam to deliberately destroy a good man's reputation, but a cabal of amoral vigilantes, whose own corruption is on record for all to see. I will be covering that also.

Here are the posts I've linked in the last few days, and as all the actual information comes out I intend to publish my own article with all the slimy nuances this disgusting performance has produced, starting with this "Cartoon of the Day".

Feinstein On Kavanaugh Accuser: 'I Can't Say That Everything Is Truthful'

Matt Vespa Sep 18, 2018

Wait a second, so Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) sat on a secret letter given to her by Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges that she was the victim of an attempted sexual assault by a drunken 18-year-old Brett Kavanaugh 30+ years ago for weeks. Feinstein obtained the letter in July and then dropped it at zero hour last week. Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who has been nominated to fill the vacancy left by Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court, looked as if his confirmation was a guarantee. Now, chaos has engulfed the process. Feinstein wants scores of witnesses. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, says he will hold a hearing on Monday.

Blasey Ford Tells Grassley Why She Has Not Accepted Invitation to Testify

Cortney O'Brien Sep 18, 2018

The Senate Judiciary Committee asked Christine Blasey Ford to come forward and testify on Monday about her accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She claims he sexually assaulted her in high school, over 36 years ago. She has not accepted the invitation to tell her story publicly in Congress, however, puzzling many senators. Tuesday night, her attorneys sent a letter to Chairman Chuck Grassley explaining their client's hesitation. They claim that the committee was trying make Ford testify at the same table as Kavanaugh. .............. A couple of spokesmen for Grassley rejected that claim..........To Read More.....

Is Germany Colluding With Islamic Terrorists?

Posted by Daniel Greenfield 0 Comments Monday, September 17, 2018 @ Sultan Knish Blog

Two million people arrived in Germany in 2015 and 1.8 million people next year in 2016.

Jawed came to Germany in 2015, while Abdul had arrived the year after in 2016. Both Jawed and Abdul were Afghan Muslim migrants. Both applied for asylum and had their asylum applications rejected.

Abdul Mobin Dawodzai was recently sentenced to eight years in prison for stabbing to death Mia Valentin, a 15-year-old girl, to death. Jawed went to Amsterdam and stabbed two American tourists at the central station.

Abdul was angry that Mia broke up with him. Jawed was angry about insults to Islam and Mohammed.

Jawed’s German residence permit enabled him to carry out a terrorist attack in Amsterdam. He mentioned Geert Wilders, the pioneering Dutch leader who was recently forced to cancel a Mohammed cartoon contest due to violent Islamic threats, and so the media has chosen to blame the terrorist attack on Islamic cartoons rather than Islamic terrorists. But Jawed is part of a larger trend of Afghan violence.

Both Jawed and Abdul carried out their stabbing attacks in public. The victims, a 15-year-old girl and American tourists, also brought more attention to a type of ordinary terror that has overtaken Europe.

In March, Hussein Khavari, an Afghan refugee who had fled to Germany in 2015, was sent to prison for raping and murdering Maria Ladenburger, a 19-year-old German student. But Hussein wasn’t fleeing Afghanistan; he was fleeing Greece, where he had thrown a 20-year-old female student off a cliff after robbing her. The Greeks sentenced him to a decade in prison, but Hussein fled to Germany instead.

Like Abdul, Hussein claimed to be a minor when he was actually in his twenties. (He may not have even actually been from Afghanistan.)

Afghans, it’s been noted, stand out for their rate of violence, even among other Muslim migrants.

A refugee expert warned in a National Interest article that, "young Afghan men... were committing sex crimes to a much greater extent than other refugees." Among the incidents she cited was, "a gang of fifty Afghans who terrorized women in the neighborhood of the Linz train station" in neighboring Austria.

Train stations are a common venue for Afghan Muslim violence and abuses. A small sampling of sexual assaults committed by Afghan refugees last year in Germany, collected by Gatestone’s Soeren Kern, included, a sexual assault on an 19-year-old woman on a train station in Hamburg, two sexual assaults by one Afghan man on two trams in Mannheim, a sexual assault on a 14-year-old girl at a station in Munich, another assault in Munster, and two Afghans who sexually assaulted a 14-year old girl in Gera.

(Not to mention the three Afghan migrants accused of sexually assaulting a 12 and 14 year old at a swimming pool, and the Afghan refugee, and repeat offender, who raped a 13-year-old girl.)

Angela Merkel, Germany’s open borders leader, had briefly ramped up Afghan deportations in response to public outrage, until a massive bombing in Kabul last year led to yet another change in policy.

The tanker truck bomb targeted the German embassy in Afghanistan’s capital, and succeeded in doing massive amounts of damage, even though German intelligence had 5 months of warning from four different sources. The German embassy had been warned 6 days before the attack and was able to evacuate staff ahead of time. Instead the bombing was exploited as a pretext for suspending the deportations of Afghans from Germany unless they were criminals or considered a serious threat.

Merkel’s deportations had removed less than 200 Afghans from the country. But the bombing put an end to even that miniscule effort.

The thousands of Taliban fighters who, according to the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), had entered Germany and applied for asylum, could conveniently no longer be deported.

Earlier this year, a German court sentenced Abdol Moghadas, an Afghan refugee, to four years in prison for his role in the death of Pfc. Christian Jacob Chandler: an American soldier serving in Afghanistan.

Abdol was one of Germany’s many Taliban fighters.

Why have so many Taliban gone to Germany? One answer might lie in the covert relationship between the Taliban and German intelligence. It was Germany who had pioneered diplomatic talks with the Taliban, and who had welcomed Taliban leaders onto German soil.

It was certainly curious how German authorities had received every possible warning about a Taliban truck bomb whose sole impact was protecting thousands of Taliban in Germany from deportation, while giving German authorities the excuse to shut down the deportations they hadn’t wanted to carry out.

The end of deportations didn’t just benefit the Taliban fighters, but failed asylum seekers like Jawed and Abdul who could no longer be deported even though their asylum applications had been turned down. Germany had sharply dropped its acceptance rate of Afghan asylum applications, while also dropping its deportation rate, leaving large numbers of legally illegal Afghan migrants to bum around Europe.

Approximately six months later, Abdul killed Mia, and over a year later, Jawed struck in Amsterdam.

"Terrorism has no borders," Merkel had declared after the bombing. But terrorism has borders. They're national borders.

It's Merkel's Germany that has no borders. And it's the European Union's lack of borders that allowed Jawed to stab two American tourists in Amsterdam. When your country or continent has no borders, then terrorism will strike deep in your cities with no borders to slow it down or stop the carnage.

Terrorism "targets all of us," Merkel had insisted. In "Manchester or Berlin, Paris, Istanbul, St. Petersburg or today in Kabul."

But it’s only when there’s nothing stopping Taliban fighters on their way from Kabul to Berlin, from Istanbul to Paris, or from Tripoli to Manchester, that Islamic terrorism is truly a universal threat.

Terrorism doesn’t have to be everywhere. Especially Islamic terrorism, which is not an indigenous political movement in Europe, Canada, Australia or America, but can only spread through migration. Without open borders, the infrastructure of Islamic terrorism, from immigrants, migrants and refugees, to mosques, which generate new converts, Islamic terrorism would be an issue in Kabul, not Berlin.

Merkel’s insistence on linking the bombing in Kabul to terrorism in Europe had it backward. The suspension of deportations cost countless lives, among them, likely Mia’s, and likely led to the stabbings of two Americans in Amsterdam by a refugee traveling with a Germany residency permit and hate in his heart. The flow of Muslim migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Pakistan brought terror to Europe.

When there are no borders, when deportations are a toothless affair, when the rights of migrants matter more than those of the native population, then Islamic terrorism truly has no borders.

The Amsterdam stabbings were a typical example of Merkel’s borderless terrorism.

Germany’s open borders attracted Jawed, Abdul, Hussein, Abdol and so many other asylum seekers. And then the EU’s internal open borders allowed Jawed to strike at American tourists in another European country. That’s what happens to ordinary people when terrorism has no borders.

Terrorism can have borders. All you have to do to save lives is protect those borders.

Stop killing wasps, say scientists, they’re just as important as bees

Sarah Knapton,19 September 2018

Wasps have long been reviled by the public and even Charles Darwin questioned his faith because he could not see why a ‘beneficent’ God would have created such nefarious creatures.  But now scientists at University College London are trying to rehabilitate their image to prevent them from dying out.

Far from being the picnic-sullying, sting-happy nuisances which have ruined many a summer gathering, conservationists argue that the insects are crucial for pollination and should be given the same respect as bees.  The team are calling on people to live with wasp nests rather than calling in the exterminators and plant ‘wasp friendly’ gardens with plenty of shelter and long grass..........To Read More....

Democrats, Kavanaugh, and ‘The End of Civilization’

If they get away with this, the only decent people in politics will be decent progressives.

By

Judge Robert Bork used to tell a prescient and darkly humorous story about watching Clarence Thomas’s Senate confirmation hearings — etched in pre-hashtag history as the “Thomas–Hill hearings,” in homage to Anita Hill’s role as the Left’s heroic accuser.

At the time, Thomas was a judge of the same eminent D.C. Circuit federal appeals court on which Bork had served. As he viewed Thomas’s “high-tech lynching” in horror, Bork recalled, a friend of his, the iconic Irving Kristol, approached and asked him what was happening.  “The end of civilization,” the judge sadly quipped..........To Read More.....

My Take - When I see that look of moral outrage on the faces of contemptible people like Dianne Feinstein, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris I want to gag.  Their personal lives have been filled with corruption and their tolerance of corruption - proven corruption - of Democrats is a absolute indicator of how disgusting these people really are.  Democrats and the left in general have a serious problem with history, facts, and consistency.   For their own political gain they're willing to destroy a good man's reputation.

Senate Judiciary Chair Grassley: Dianne Feinstein’s office refuses to cooperate on Kavanaugh accuser procedure

Chris Pandolfo · September 17, 2018  
 
Here’s yet more proof that the Democrats are playing dirty with Kavanaugh.  Senate Republicans want to follow up with Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, in the regular order of the Senate confirmation process. What’s supposed to happen is that an update to a nominee’s background will be discussed in private phone calls between each party and the committee. If necessary, additional testimony may be required, but the phone calls should come before the committee reaches that point.

But a statement from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, says that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office is refusing to cooperate in the follow-up on Ford’s accusations.   Here’s the statement:............It’s unethical. It’s disgusting. It’s the Democratic Party.........To Read More....

The Charges Against Judge Kavanaugh Should Be Ignored

Dennis Prager  Sep 18, 2018

It is almost impossible to overstate the damage done to America's moral compass by taking the charges leveled against Judge Brett Kavanaugh seriously.  It undermines foundational moral principles of any decent society.  Those who claim the charges against Judge Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford are important and worth investigating, and that they ultimately, if believed, invalidate his candidacy for the U.S. Supreme Court are stating that:

a) What a middle-aged adult did in high school is all we need to know to evaluate an individual's character -- even when his entire adult life has been impeccable.
b) No matter how good and moral a life one has led for 10, 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years, it is nullified by a sin committed as teenager.

No decent -- or rational -- society has ever believed such nihilistic nonsense..........Do not be surprised if a future Republican candidate for office or judicial nominee -- no matter how exemplary a life he has led -- is accused of sexual misconduct ... from when he was in elementary school............To Read More...

Feel the Bern: Can We Predict When Venezuela’s Statist Nightmare Will End?

September 12, 2018 by Dan Mitchell  @ International Liberty

Ever since 2010, I’ve been pointing out that Venezuela is a horrifying and tragic example of what happens when the private sector in a country is almost completely suffocated by excessive government.

And with the country now in a death spiral, you would think it’s a perfect time for further commentary. I sometimes wonder, though, what I can write that isn’t ridiculously repetitive.

But a couple of recent conversations have convinced me of the need to address two points.


First, it’s important to emphasize that not all statism is created equal. When writing recently about Denmark, I created a chart to show how that country was much more pro-market than France. And that same chart showed that France was much more capitalist than Greece.

And guess which country was the most statist? If you said Venezuela, you’re right.

And the lesson from this data is that the degree of statism matters. Venezuela is a total mess because of total statism, Greece is in trouble because of lots of statism, France is anemic because of run-of-the-mill statism, and Denmark does okay because it’s only statist in one area (fiscal policy).

Imagine you were a teacher and these countries were students. Here are the grades you’d assign for economic policy.

F – Venezuela
D – Greece
C – France
B – Denmark
 
Second, I want to answer a question that often gets asked, which is how long can the current government survive?

Unfortunately, I don’t have a good answer. That’s partly because bad policy doesn’t cause overnight collapse (Adam Smith noted more than 200 years ago, “there is great deal of ruin in a nation”).

Venezuela historically has propped up its statist regime with oil revenue, but that’s shrinking as an option because of government incompetence.
Thousands of workers are fleeing Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, abandoning once-coveted jobs made worthless by the worst inflation in the world. …Desperate oil workers and criminals are also stripping the oil company of vital equipment, vehicles, pumps and copper wiring, carrying off whatever they can to make money. The double drain — of people and hardware — is further crippling a company that has been teetering for years yet remains the country’s most important source of income. …Venezuela is on its knees economically, buckled by hyperinflation and a history of mismanagement. Widespread hunger, political strife, devastating shortages of medicine and an exodus of well over a million people in recent years have turned this country, once the economic envy of many of its neighbors, into a crisis.
At the end of the day, the regime can rely on force. And Venezuela’s politicians cleverly have put the army in charge of graft and shakedowns, thus earning at least temporary loyalty.
Venezuela’s military has come to oversee the desperate and lucrative water trade as reservoirs empty, broken pipes flood neighborhoods and overwhelmed personnel walk out. Seven major access points in the capital of 5.5 million people are now run by soldiers or police, who also took total control of all public and private water trucks. Unofficially, soldiers direct where drivers deliver — and make them give away the goods at favored addresses. President Nicolas Maduro’s autocratic regime has handed lucrative industries to the 160,000-member military as the economic collapse gathers speed, from the mineral-rich region of the Arco Minero del Orinoco to top slots at the state oil producer to increasingly precious control over food and water.
Moreover, it’s difficult for people to revolt since the regime has followed the totalitarian playbook and banned private guns.

So it’s no surprise that many disaffected people (the ones who otherwise might revolt) are simply escaping the country.
Hundreds turn up each day, many arriving penniless and gaunt… Once they cross, many cram into public parks and plazas teeming with makeshift homeless shelters, raising concerns about drugs and crime. The lucky ones sleep in tents and line up for meals provided by soldiers — pregnant women, the disabled and families with young children are often given priority. …this is happening in Brazil, where a relentless tide of people fleeing the deepening economic crisis in Venezuela… The tens of thousands of Venezuelans who have found refuge in Brazil in recent years are walking proof of a worsening humanitarian crisis that their government claims does not exist. …more Venezuelans are leaving home each month than the 125,000 Cuban exiles who fled their homes during the 1980 Mariel boat crisis.
And the ones who haven’t left still have some options besides starve or revolt.
A few years ago, there were so many donkeys, or burros, in the Venezuelan state of Falcón that they were a problem — herds everywhere, causing highway crashes and blocking airport runways. But over the past three years, the herds have shrunk dramatically as thousands of burros have been slaughtered for their meat by Venezuelans suffering through a near-famine. …The collapse of the Venezuelan economy is radically changing the eating habits in the oil-producing country, where large sectors of the population are being forced to pick through garbage and slaughter domestic animals to sate their hunger. …The clandestine slaughter of the animals also has become a sanitary and environmental problem, Stefaneli added. There are no sanitary controls, and the burro has been disappearing from its native habitats. …Years back, residents of Paraguana used to eat goat, fish and beef. And when those were in short supply they ate rabbits, grains and even iguanas. Burro meat was not liked because it’s tough and smells, even from far away, according to residents who have eaten it. But it has become a necessity for many people.
The bottom line is that Venezuela is in free-fall, but I don’t know where the bottom is. And I don’t know what will happen when the country hits rock bottom.

But if you hold a gun to my head, I’ll predict that the regime somehow collapses in 2020.

P.S. The silver lining of Venezuela’s dark cloud is that we have some grim humor from inside and outside the country.

P.P.S. Venezuela is such a disaster that even the World Bank acknowledged Chile’s market-oriented system is far superior.

Will Others Follow Microsoft's Lead on Paid Parental Leave?



An objectively good thing happened in big tech Thursday: Microsoft said it will require companies that supply it with subcontractors—think cafeteria and custodial staff—to give those workers 12 weeks of paid parental leave. In doing so, Microsoft is once again taking the lead in ensuring contractors get benefits that other big companies reserve for full-time employees.

Back in 2015, Microsoft began requiring its suppliers to give their employees 15 days of paid vacation and sick leave annually. That prompted other tech companies like Facebook to follow suit. Labor advocates hope Microsoft’s new parental leave policy inspires a similar trend.

Thursday’s announcement builds off that work. “This change applies to all parents employed by our suppliers who take time off for the birth or adoption of a child. The new policy applies to suppliers with more than 50 employees and covers supplier employees who perform substantial work for Microsoft,” wrote Microsoft VP and General Counsel Dev Stahlkopf in a blog post. It will not cover individuals who contract with Microsoft themselves...........To Read More....
 
My Take - This is "an objectively good thing"?  I don't think it is.  It takes a lot of nerve for one company to demand another company follow their social inclinations.  What if large companies all of a sudden demand all contractors support abortions, and have health care plans that pay for it?  What if large companies demand companies have classes to support homosexual causes, even if their religious views find this impermissible?  What if large companies demand contractors become Democrats, or Republicans, or Libertarians, or Socialists, or Communists irrespective of their personal preferences?  What if large companies demand contractors financially support candidates of their choice?  What if large companies demand everyone become Christians, or Muslims, or Jews, or Wiccans, or even atheists?
 
No, this is not "an objectively good thing"!  What this is, is a slippery slope called social engineering, and we really need to get that!

Professor accusing Kavanaugh is radical SJW with some damning student reviews


Whatever the truth of the matter, however, certainly true is that Ford is a radical leftist who’d be inclined to zealously oppose a Kavanaugh nomination. For example, Breitbart reports that she not only has attended anti-Trump events, but actually donned a pink “brain pu**y hat” for a 2017 anti-Trump march.

Just as telling, though, may be her student reviews.

The long silences of Christine Blasey Ford and Dianne Feinstein

What is Christine Braley Ford trying to hide?

By Monica Showalter September 17, 2018

After Democrats all but lose the prospect of derailing the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, suddenly a new accuser with a 35-year-old charge of groping abuse comes out of the woodwork. Problem is, she doesn't want to tell us everything.

Christine Blasey Ford's accusation started with a letter – an anonymous accusatory letter of bad behavior dating from high school. A letter we were supposed to believe, a guy's career we were supposed to ruin, yet we were to take only on faith that there was any merit to it.

Well, that fell apart, so the accuser came forward.  She had psychologist's notes dating from 2012. She says she passed a polygraph. And the picture she painted was imaginable, as witness stories are – there were holes in the story (she had no idea where she was or how she got home, she didn't want to say anything to anyone so as to avoid getting in trouble), and her charges – groping, clothes grabbed at, but no rape – were not over the top. All of that made her look rather believable, because, well, I am about the same age as her and know what it was like to be 17. Seventeen-year-old girls often are groped by certain kinds of boys.

But her case rapidly fell apart when it wasn't just a problem from her long ago......... Read more

Lawyer for Kavanaugh’s Accuser: My Client Isn't Saying Kavanaugh Shouldn't Be Confirmed to the Supreme Cour

Katie Pavlich Sep 17, 2018
 
The lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during a party in high school, says her client hasn't taken the position her allegations disqualify him from serving as a justice on the Supreme Court.

"She has not taken a position that he should not be confirmed," attorney Debra Katz said on CBS News Monday morning.

Katz is a major Democrat donor and called those working for President Trump "miscreants."
Blasey Ford went public Sunday as the woman behind a letter Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein referred to the FBI last week about Kavanaugh's alleged behavior. She has accused him of forcing himself on her during a party 35 years ago. She said they both had been drinking. From the Washington Post:...........To Read More....
 

Sen. Collins Criticizes Democrats' Handling of Christine Blasey Ford's Accusations Against Kavanaugh

Lauretta Brown  Posted: Sep 17, 2018
 
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) told The New York Times Sunday that the way Democrats have handled Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh was “not fair” to Kavanaugh or Ford.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) initially referred Ford’s anonymous allegations against Kavanaugh to the FBI last week although she was aware of them back in July. Ford, a California college professor, finally revealed her identity to The Washington Post Sunday along with more details about the allegations that Kavanaugh locked her in a room, groped her, and put his hand over her mouth during a high school party.

“What is puzzling to me is the Democrats, by not bringing this out earlier, after having had this information for more than six weeks, have managed to cast a cloud of doubt on both the professor and the judge,” Sen. Collins commented.
“If they believed Professor Ford, why didn’t they surface this information earlier so that he could be questioned about it?” she wondered. “And if they didn’t believe her and chose to withhold the information, why did they decide at the 11th hour to release it? It is really not fair to either of them the way it is was handled.”...........To Read More....
 
 

Before Believing Kavanaugh's Accuser

Allie Stuckey Sep 17, 2018

On Sunday, the Washington Post published the account of Brett Kavanaugh’s previously anonymous accuser. Her name is Christine Blasey Ford, she is a professor in California, and she claims Kavanaugh forced himself on her in high school—more than 30 years ago.

Ford says she contacted Senator Feinstein’s office with her story in July, and she had hoped that her story would be kept secret. Feinstein failed to fulfill Ford’s wishes when she cryptically released a letter last week stating that someone had contacted her about a sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh. Frustrated by the circulating inaccuracies following the publication of the letter, she reached out to the Post to set her story straight.

The details are disturbing. Ford alleges Kavanaugh held her down against her will, groped her, attempted to take her clothes off, and covered her mouth when she tried to scream. Ford told the Post: “I thought he might inadvertently kill me.” She reportedly told no one about the incident until couple’s therapy with her husband in 2012—a claim her therapist supports..........To Read More....

The Legal Advisor for Kavanaugh’s Accuser Is a Big Time Democratic Donor, Thinks People Who Work for Trump Are 'Miscreants'

Timothy Meads  Sep 16, 2018
 
The Washington Post reported this afternoon that Stanford professor Christine Blasey Ford is the woman behind the confidential letter given to Sen. Dianne Feinstein accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault as a teenager. According to the Post, Ford initially refrained from revealing the alleged information of a horrendous sexual assault due to privacy concerns for herself and her family. But she thought it was her duty to come forward on the record after the advice of Washington lawyer Debra Katz. Katz, however, has a long history of dismissing sexual assault allegations against liberal politicians, donating to left-wing causes, and even publicly demonizing all Trump advisors as "miscreants" who are worse than deplorables.

Ford kept the following account to herself until a 2012 couples' therapy session and declined to initially name Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge according to her therapist's notes from the appointment:...........To Read More.....

Attorney Says Kavanaugh's Accuser Is Willing to Testify in Public

Is Dianne Feinstein the Most Corrupt Senator in the United States?

By Michael Ledeen September 16, 2018

On top of her McCarthyite smear of Judge Kavanaugh, she's closely tied to both Chinese and Russian operations in the United States.  To date, only one fairly obscure member of Congress has asked our intel people in this case, the FBI--to look into the alarming case of a Chinese agent becoming her office manager and personal chauffeur. An excerpt from Rep. Jim Banks'  letter to FBI Director Wray:
It has recently come to light that U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the former chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, employed a staff member who was using his position to secretly report information to the Ministry of State Security in China. Given the type of information Senator Feinstein had access to and China's position as a top foreign adversary of the United States, this revelation is alarming.
The Chinese agent is apparently working without annoyance in California. Feinstein is running for reelection. I wonder if he is planning to vote for her.  Banks asked for an investigation and a briefing. That was last month, and I haven't seen anything since. Have you? Yet the "news" is chock-a-block with thousands of column inches on an unknown event alleged by an unknown woman who claims it happened when she and Judge Kavanaugh were in high school 35-40 years ago.........To Read More....
 
 
 
 

Maxine Waters, the New Face of the Democratic Party

Rachel Alexander Sep 17, 2018

A big part of the reason Democrats are fleeing their party in the #WalkAway movement is because of leadership like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.). The 80-year-old lawmaker has been in office since 1991, representing large parts of south-central Los Angeles and surrounding areas. She is best known for corruption and hyperbole. In recent years, she has escalated her public appearances representing Democrats. In June, President Trump declared, “The face of the Democrats is now Maxine Waters.” ............If Waters is the best the Democrats have now, they are in serious trouble. Are they incapable of finding an ethical leader who doesn’t sound unhinged? The average Democrat doesn’t want someone that nutty representing them. Waters may represent the viewpoints of Antifa and the radical left, but she is scaring away the normal people left in the party. Which is a good thing for Republicans...........To Read More.......

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

The Democrats and the Washington Post knew who she was all along.

David Catron September 17, 2018

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 “declined to come forward or press the matter further.”

But, as the Washington Post admitted yesterday, Christine Blasey Ford contacted them at the same time she reached out to Feinstein. Did she collude with the Post and the Democrats to ambush Kavanaugh?

Did Ford make a deal with the Democrats and the Post to hide behind the shield of anonymity until it was too late for the Trump administration to replace Judge Kavanaugh with another nominee who could be confirmed before the midterms?

Their obvious hope is that the Democrats will eke out a majority in the Senate and prevent President Trump from appointing any further conservative justices to the Supreme Court. The Washington Post story says, in passing, that Ford is a registered Democrat. Her social media accounts appear to have been scrubbed, but some information remains suggesting that she is member in good standing of “the resistance.”

Her name can, for example, be found among 5,000 signatures on a letter sent by “Physicians for Human Rights” to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. This tendentious missive protests President Trump’s border security policy and is typical of the hysteria surrounding the separation of some children from their parents that eventually culminated in the “abolish ICE” movement. She signed the letter under the name, “Christine Blasey Ph.D. Psychologist.” It is little more than a recitation of anti-Trump talking points, dressed up to read like a cri de coeur from a group of concerned professionals:...........To Read More....


My Take - Once again, it appears she's just another Democrat operative just as was Sandra Fluke.  Lawsuit time!  Once they get this woman into discovery her story will crumble, and this should be done even if Kavanaugh isn't confirmed as a warming to other schemers and fellow travellers. It should have been done to Anita Hill, and maybe this wouldn't have happened. 

Leftists Are All Brass, No Class, And No Answers!

Recently an article posted by Eugene Kim, entitled, “Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos's new $2 billion philanthropic fund faces many unanswered questions”, saying:
“Jeff Bezos Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos finally shared more details of his philanthropic efforts on Thursday, announcing a new $2 billion fund, called "Day One Fund," to help homeless families and create preschools. The announcement came more than a year after Bezos asked his Twitter followers for ideas on how to give away his fortune, and on the heels of growing public criticism on his lack of philanthropic activities. But philanthropic experts say the announcement — while a good start — still has many unanswered questions that need to be addressed as the world's richest person accelerates his plan to give back”……
One of the questions was, “Why only $2 billion?" Imagine that? People who did nothing to generate that capital are now criticizing Bezos for his “measly” two billion dollar charity. I gotta tell ya – that’s nerve! But that’s the left for you! All brass and no class.

First of all, why should the wealthy have to give their money away anyway? All this Corporate Social Responsibility horsepuckh is a scam to keep leftists in business. And leftism has now become "big business", getting real businesses to give away real capital created by real businessmen, in order to undermine capitalism. Can there be any doubt leftism is a form of insanity.
(Side bar - For my friend John: Leftism is the term that encompasses communism, fascism, progressivism and liberalism, which are all forms of socialism going back to the foundation of socialism, the French Revolution.  As for groups like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Occupy Wall Street loons, they're the American left's modern version of the Nazi "Brown Shirt" thugs.  Different names, same purpose!  But the underlying social philosophy is socialism. If calling them communists pleases you, I'm fine with that.)
I recommend reading Ron Arnold's book, Freezing in the Dark: Money, Power, Politics and The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy, to see just how much capital these leeches suck out of the system, who that money is coming from, how much is hidden, and how it's hidden. It's frightening!

It amazes me at the questions asked in this article, which sound a lot more like demands to me. As for the idea he “has” to give back, and he “has” to be more philanthropic, or has to explain how and what he's going to do with that $2 billion dollars is a load of horsepucky. He doesn’t have to do any of this stuff and he doesn’t have to answer to these mooches or explain anything to anyone, except possibly the IRS, but if he’s following the law, that’s not an issue either. 

Why is this so hard to get? It's "his" money!  And he can do what he pleases with it.   

When a person is amazingly wealthy they’re giving back just by the fact of their wealth, because that wealth was created by creating jobs. When not in use, that wealth has to be banked and that’s the foundation for investment into other businesses and homes, by lending institutions.  They give back with the very existence of that wealth, not to mention the huge amount of taxes they pay.

And where did this term “give back” originate anyway. What did the public give to them? They bought their stuff? Well, that’s called commerce. I sell, you buy. If I offer a product I owe you a quality product and you owe me payment for that product, and if both sides of that business deal are satisfactorily met, neither one of us owes the other anything else.

If Bezos really wants to "give back" he needs to invest that money in other businesses - then those who are willing to work and build will reap the rewards of those efforts, and won't need charity. Then those rewards will be shared with their neighbors by buying homes, groceries, going on vacations, going out to dinner, going to the theatre, buying furniture, carpeting, hiring plumbers, lawn care people, etc., who will reap the same kind of rewards based on hard work, and then they will also "give back" in the same way.  It's called capitalism!  

But he won't.  He'll keep pushing his left wing agenda, giving his money to the leftist loons that swirl around him and their loony causes, all working unendingly to undermine the very system that made him wealthy.  A system that has brought more people out of misery, suffering and despair than any system the world has ever known.  Capitalism!  Capitalism isn't perfect, but perfection isn't attainable!  Why is that so hard to understand?  That means we need to accept the most acceptable imperfection, and that's capitalism.  It's the most acceptable imperfection because it has allowed, and will continue to allow, for the unprecedented creation of capital by ordinary people.  And that allows for freedom!

Hey Bezos, have you read about Venezuela? 

Anne Hathaway denounces white privilege in award speech

By Nikki Schwab September 16, 2018

Actress Anne Hathaway told an audience Saturday night that she’s been frightened by the hatred of LGBT people that bigots spew — but a speech by former vice president Joe Biden went a long way to restoring her faith.

“I really needed this,” Hathaway said as she accepted the National Equality Award at the Human Rights Campaign’s National Dinner.  “I think I’m probably walking around like most people right now. I’m pretty shell shocked by what I see every day, what I hear everyday. And I really don’t like to admit this, but I get scared.”

Hathaway said she felt better after hearing speeches from Biden and HRC’s President Chad Griffin, who spoke earlier in the evening.........To Read More....

My Take - And who exactly is this loon afraid of?  Antifa?  Black Lives Matter?  Young rioters on the campus' of universities?  The people who harass public figures in restaurants? No, she afraid of people who stay home, go to work everyday, mind their own business, and treat others with respect.  But then she wants to “tear this world apart and build a better one.”'  Isn't that what all leftists want?  To destroy everything? And she's afraid of.............. who?

Newspaper Publishers Association honors Maxine Waters with ‘leadership’ award

September 16, 2018 By Kyle Olson

Mad Maxine Waters is a leader worthy of honor, according to the National Newspaper Publishers Association.The group honored the California congresswoman with a “National Leadership Award” on Friday, according to Diversity Inc.  During her acceptance, Waters denounced President Trump, prompting applause from the audience of media leaders..............She dismissed criticism that an ousted President Trump would lead to a President Pence. “Knock off the first one, and then go after the second one,” .........She ended her remarks by saying, “Let’s get to work! Let’s do what we have to do! Let’s show them who the real patriots are of this country!”...........To Read More....

My Take - This is a first.  Never before has an entire professional association been inducted into the Club For the Galacticly Stupid, joining Maxine as members in good standing. Congratulations Newspaper Publishers Association! 

Not all journalists are members of that Club on a personal basis though.

As Rachel Alexander noted:  "The left-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington listed Waters as one of the most corrupt members of Congress in 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2011. The House Ethics Committee accused her of at least one ethical violation in 2010 for helping a bank receive federal aid. Her husband was a stockholder and former director of the bank, and the bank’s executives were major contributors to her campaigns. The bank received $12 million in TARP funds."

As for Maxine's "real patriots".  Robespierre, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pot Pol, Chavez, and Maxine's personal favorite, Fidel Castro - all patriots, and all failures as leaders, and human beings.  These patriots caused more suffering and misery than those they overthrew.  Maxine is a corrupt disgrace, and those who have now "honored" Maxine are the same kind of intellectual elitist trash who loved Castro even more than Maxine and her fellow political "patriots".

Venezuela sues neighbors for ... not treating its flood of refugees well enough

By Monica Showalter September 16, 2018

After driving millions of Venezuelans out of their country through starvation, state terror, crime, corruption and lack of medical care, Venezuela is planning to sue Colombia, Peru and Ecuador for ... not treating them well enough.

According to Jim Wyss of the Miami Herald:
In recent days, [President Nicolas] Maduro and his cabinet have said they might sue Colombia, Ecuador and Perú for their “xenophobic” treatment of Venezuelan migrants. And on Tuesday, Maduro ordered his justice department to sue Colombia to claw back money he says his administration has spent providing social services to millions of Colombians living in Venezuela.
Whuhhh?

It sounds like the sort of thing Mexico would do - to us, after driving out its own citizens from their fair land. And of course, it has.............Read more

The Fuel Cell Corporate Scandal in Delaware:

Citizens forced to subsidize BloomEnergy Boondoggle and pay more for “clean energy” that is not very clean

The truth about the fuel cell “promise” of inexpensive, clean energy that is actually very expensive and not very clean. Who is reaping benefits if it’s not the citizens of Delaware whose taxes and electricity payments are subsidizing corporate moguls? Is it, in reality, clean energy if the fuel cells produce hazardous materials that are shipped to other states?
