Ginsburg “Cheered On” by Allegations Against Kavanaugh

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg chimed in on the Kavanaugh controversy during a speech at a Georgetown University Law Center Event on Wednesday, revealing she’s “really cheered on by this,” a reference to the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. “#MeToo was also an example of women coming together in numbers, so it was one complaint, and then one after another the complaints mounted, so women nowadays are not silent about bad behavior,” gushed Ginsburg. What’s interesting was the lack of “cheer” for the complaints of serial rape against Bill Clinton both before, during, and after his tenure in the White House.

Ahead of Thursday’s hearing on sexual misconduct allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg applauded “women coming together in numbers” with #MeToo reports.

“I am really turned on by this #MeToo because these #MeToo complaints are – every woman of my vintage has not just one story but many stories, but we thought there’s nothing you could do about it, boys will be boys, so let’s find a way to get out of it. #MeToo was also an example of women coming together in numbers, so it was one complaint and then one after another the complaints mounted, so women nowadays are not silent about bad behavior,” Ginsburg said during a Georgetown University Law Center event with first-year students on Wednesday, the evening before the hearing with Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, was set to take place.

“But what Justice O’Connor said, she said women have to get out there and do things that make an impressive show.

Obama’s Secretary of Ed: Americans Love Guns More Than Kids

Barack Obama’s Education Secretary Arne Duncan is claiming that Americans “value our guns more than we value our children.” Duncan says that rabid gun control countries, such as Australia, Canada, England, and Japan, love their kids more because they have fewer guns and less gun violence. He then claimed that Americans especially do not love black or brown children, and that’s why we did nothing to change gun laws “until white kids were killed” (see Sandy Hook massacre). Duncan is, yet again, reminding us about how ineffective leftist education policy is, particularly in the realm of statistics. His hometown of Chicago boasts some of the most onerous gun control laws in the nation, yet simultaneously is notorious for the highest annual murder rates. Of course Duncan and his ilk see no connection.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

WASHINGTON – Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who served in the Obama administration, argued that the U.S. does not “value our kids the way other nations do” and that Americans “value our guns more than we value our children.”

Duncan named Australia, Canada, England and Japan as other countries that do not have the same level of gun violence when compared to the U.S.

“We don’t lack the intellect; we lack the political will and courage to keep our kids safe. In fact, we’ve now raised a generation of teens on mass shootings and gun violence,” Duncan, author of the new book How Schools Work: An Inside Account of Failure and Success from One of the Nation’s Longest-Serving Secretaries of Education, said on Thursday at the National Press Club.

“So, for me, the lie here is you’ll never find anyone who says we don’t value kids.

Rosenstein and Mueller Investigation May Sink Together

As we reported, Dept Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “verbally resigned” from the DOJ, which formally ends his oversight of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. According to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, Rod “Wear of Wire” Rosenstein isn’t out of Washington yet and appears to be wrapping up loose ends at least through Thursday when he and the President are scheduled to meet. “At the request of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, he and President Trump had an extended conversation to discuss the recent news stories,” Sanders explained. This also means a major shake-up for Mueller, making the collusion case even more tenuous.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s tenure at the Justice Department (DOJ) may be coming to a close and with it his oversight of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation after a series of reports Monday.
News of Rosenstein’s potentially imminent departure broke in an Axios report Monday morning that he had “verbally resigned” in a conversation with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. This conversation took place days after a report emerged Friday alleging that Rosenstein had discussed taping his or others conversations with President Donald Trump last spring, shortly after Rosenstein took office, with an eye to helping remove the president. Rosenstein has steadfastly denied that report in public, with other sources at the Justice Department claiming the comment was really made, but was a joke or sarcastic.

Trump Jumps in to Defend Kavanaugh

President Trump is going all in to defend his SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, who is clearly the victim of a relentless assault by manufactured, unsubstantiated, and impossible-to-investigate sexual misconduct claims from decades ago. The latest claim is that Kavanaugh exposed himself. Thirty-five years later this drunken undergrad’s “memory” has resurfaced within days of a scheduled confirmation vote by the U.S. Senate. Trump called the accusations “totally political” and affirmed his support for Kavanaugh, saying “I am with him all the way.” Unfortunately for Democrats, if Kavanaugh is successfully “borked,” it will merely force the backup nomination of Amy Barrett.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The White House press office went into overdrive on Sunday night after The New Yorker published a report from a college classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh alleging sexual misconduct when the two attended a boozy party 35 years ago.

Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh exposed himself during a a drunken dormitory party, then thrust his penis in her face. Kavanaugh vehemently denies the accusation.

On Monday, President Trump, attending the annual meetings at the United Nations in New York, backed his nominee, calling the accusations “totally political.” Trump said the allegations were unsubstantiated, made by accusers who come “out of the woodwork.” He also told reporters, “You should look into the lawyers doing the representation.”

On Kavanaugh, Trump said: “I am with him all the way.”

GAO Auditor Wants to “Destroy Capitalists”

A recent installment of Project Veritas’ “Deep State” project reveals a U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) employee admitting to being a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). According to the undercover footage, he’s not alone but actually part of a broader effort to “destroy capitalists.” The GAO has since released a statement revealing this person has been “removed from any ongoing GAO work.” That doesn’t necessarily translate to “fired.” In typical bureaucratic fashion, the offending member has moved to a less public facing position, confirming his bold assertion that it’s “impossible to fire a government employee.”

Here’s more form Breitbart…

In the latest installment of Project Veritas’ undercover video series into the “Deep State,” a U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) employee purportedly admits to breaking agency rules and being a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).
UPDATE: According to Project Veritas, GAO has issued a statement saying that this employee has been “removed from any ongoing GAO work.” The statement reads:

[W]e cannot comment on his personnel status due to privacy laws. But he has been removed from any ongoing GAO work and cut off from access to GAO equipment. We have a rigorous quality control process with many reviewers that prevents one person from biasing our final reports. But we will also examine his work product as part of our investigation.

Trump on Lack of Border Wall Funding: Ridiculous

President Trump blasted the Senate’s latest funding bill this week for its glaring lack of ample funding for border security and for even a pittance for the wall. He accused Democrats of obstructing the process and threatening to derail it altogether if anything approaching a wall is addressed, but that’s no surprise to us at all. Keeping the issue alive for November is exactly what the Democrats’ doctor ordered. The problem for them is that polling still shows American voters squarely in favor of more security . . . including a wall.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner… 

President Trump complained Thursday that a spending bill passed by the Senate this week doesn’t do anything to boost funding for the border wall he promised voters in 2016.

“I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms? Dems are obstructing Law Enforcement and Border Security,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning. “REPUBLICANS MUST FINALLY GET TOUGH!”

Trump has had an uphill battle since taking office in gaining funding for a southern border wall, which he promised voters during the campaign would be built to increase border security.

The Senate passed a final spending bill this week for fiscal year 2019 that accounts for more that half of the expected federal spending for the year.

NPR Railroads Movie About Abortionist Kermit Gosnell

National Public Radio has rejected six figures’ worth of advertising revenue from John Sullivan, executive producer of the new film Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer (in theaters Oct. 12). Sullivan was trying to purchase a sponsorship for the Peabody Award-winning interview show Fresh Air for the following ad:
“Support for this NPR program comes from the film Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer. The film is the true story of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, a story the mainstream media tried to cover up because it reveals the truth about abortion.” NPR took issue with the term “abortionist” as well as “abortion doctor,” which were deemed not neutral enough for its sponsorship requirements. The problem is that NPR itself has used these terms numerous times in stories about Gosnell and other abortionists. The bottom line is that NPR doesn’t want to offend its overwhelming liberal audience by supporting an obvious conservative film.

Here’s more from The Daily Beast…

Early last month, John Sullivan, executive producer of the new film Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer (in theaters Oct. 12), reached out to National Public Radio to purchase a sponsorship for the Peabody Award-winning interview show, Fresh Air.

Sullivan, who was prepared to spend as much as six figures, crafted his ad copy to answer the question you’re probably asking: Who is Gosnell? The proposed ad was as follows, “Support for this NPR program comes from the film Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer. The film is the true story of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. A story the mainstream media tried to cover up because it reveals the truth about abortion.”

No dice. According to e-mails provided to The Daily Beast, NPR’s representative ran it up the legal flagpole and came back with a disappointing answer.In addition to other minor tweaks to the wording, their response stated, “The word ‘abortionist’ will also need to be changed to the neutral word ‘doctor.’”

Socialists Bureaucrat Brags: “Resist Everything”

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has just revealed yet another alarming video of an avowed socialist not only working at the State Department but also working to “resist everything” at “every level” . . . while on the clock. “I’m careful about it,” he says in the footage. Stuart Karaffa also boasted shamelessly about working for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) by monitoring Virginia campaign finance and election news: “Maybe someday I’ll go to board of elections jail, probably not,” Karaffa pooh-poohed. “I have nothing to lose. It’s impossible to fire federal employees.” Um, except when an employee admits fraud on camera.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released their first dose of undercover footage allegedly revealing the shadowy actors of the “deep state.” In Tuesday’s footage, an employee of the State Department and a member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) admits to working on DSA work while on the clock and makes it clear that his goal is to “resist everything” at “every level.”

State Department employee Stuart Karaffa tells undercover Project Veritas reporters that he drafts communication for his DSA activism on the taxpayers’ dime, though he’s careful not to leave a “paper trail.”

“I’m careful about it,” he says in the footage. “I don’t leave a paper trail, like I leave emails, and like any press s*** that comes up I leave that until after 5:30. But as soon as 5:31 hits, got my, like, draft messages ready to send out.”

Karaffa also boasts about assisting the DSA by monitoring Virginia campaign finance and election news while on the clock.

Kavanaugh Accuser Willing to Testify, and so is Kavanaugh

Thus far, SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh is holding his ground against Democrat activist and Palo Alto professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has come forward with “attempted rape” accusations from more than 35 years ago. Ford has since raised the stakes, saying she is willing to testify about the incident from high school. Kavanaugh, too, has said he is willing to testify under oath about the accusation, releasing the following statement: “This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.” One might wonder if this is simply a warmed over version of the Anita Hill “scandal,” which threatened to derail the confirmation of Justice Clarence Thomas nearly 30 years ago. Despite “hope and change,” some things never change.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of having attempted to force himself on her at a party when they were both in high school says she is willing to testify about the alleged sexual assault. Kavanaugh has responded in a statement Monday by saying he is also willing to testify under oath.

On Monday, the lawyer representing California professor Christine Blasey Ford says she is willing to testify publicly before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the “attempted rape” she says happened over three decades ago that was brought to light by Democrats in the eleventh hour of the confirmation process:

Kavanaugh adamantly denies the allegation, as does the other man named by Ford, Mark Judge.

“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” Kavanaugh said when the allegation first came to light last week.

Breitbart’s Leaked Google Video Stuns Media

Earlier this week, Breitbart broke the story of a meeting among Google powers-that-be held the day after the 2016 presidential election. In that video, the group conveyed, without reservation, their ‘dismay’ at the election of Donald Trump. Reports Breitbart: “[the] eye-brow raising footage shows Google co-founder Sergey Brin contrasting supporters of President Trump with fascists driven by ‘boredom.'” Other officials effused anti-Trump sentiments along those lines. It’s yet another hit to the Silicon Valley elitism which unequivocally sought to aid the election of Hillary Clinton. Things are not going well for Google, Twitter, Facebook, et al.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Journalists, media executives, and political figures reacted Wednesday afternoon to a Breitbart News report revealing leaked footage of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 presidential election in which executives of the Silicon Valley giant expressed disillusionment with President Donald Trump’s victory.

As reported earlier by Breitbart News’Allum Bokhari, the eye-brow raising footage shows Google co-founder Sergey Brin contrasting supporters of President Trump with fascists driven by “boredom.”

“The Google co-founder then asks his company to consider what it can do to ensure a “better quality of governance and decision-making.” VP for Global Affairs Kent Walker argues that supporters of populist causes like the Trump campaign are motivated by “fear, xenophobia, hatred, and a desire for answers that may or may not be there,” writes Bokhari.

Yelp’s Senior Vice President of Public Policy Luther Lowe was among the first Silicon Valley executives to share the story, tweeting: “[U]mm… WOW. Breitbart just dropped video of a full TGIF (Google’s confidential company-wide meeting) the day after the election. Might send a bottle of scotch to Google D.C. What a nightmare.”
