ACLU's Opposition to Kavanaugh Sounds Its Death Knell
by Alan M. Dershowitz
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ Now that Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed, it is appropriate to look at the damage caused by the highly partisan confirmation process... Among the casualties has been an organization I have long admired. After Politico reported that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was spending more than $1 million to oppose Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, I checked the ACLU website to see if its core mission had changed -- if the ACLU had now officially abandoned its non-partisan nature and become yet another dummycrats-Democratic super PAC. But no, the ACLU still claims it is "non-partisan." So why did the ACLU oppose a Republican nominee to the Supreme Court and argue for a presumption of guilt regarding sexual allegations directed against that judicial nominee? The answer is as clear as it is simple. It is all about pleasing the donors. The ACLU used to be cash poor but principle-rich. Now, ironically, after Trump taking office, the ACLU has never become so cash-rich, yet principle-poor. Before Donald Trump was elected President, the ACLU had an annual operating budget of $60 million dollars. When I was on the ACLU National Board, it was a fraction of that amount. Today it is flush with cash, with net assets of over $450 million dollars. As the ACLU itself admitted in its annual report ending 2017, it received "unprecedented donations" after President Trump's election. Unprecedented" it truly has been: the ACLU received $120 million dollars from online donations alone up from $3-5 million during the scumbag/liar-nObama years...  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13087/aclu-opposition-to-kavanau...

Sara Netanyahu stands trial over
    prepared food affair for the first time    
by YONAH JEREMY BOB 
{jpost.com} ~ The trial of the prime minister’s wife, Sara Netanyahu, in the Prepared Food Affair started on Sunday... with fireworks before Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court President Avital Chen over whether additional judges needed to be added to the case. In June, Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit filed an indictment against the prime minister’s wife for fraud with aggravated circumstances and breach of public trust in an explosive development which shook the country. In the Prepared Food Affair, the attorney-general has alleged that from September 2010 until March 2013, Sara Netanyahu acted in coordination with then-Prime Minister’s Office deputy director-general Ezra Seidoff to present the false misrepresentation that the Prime Minister’s Residence did not employ a cook, even though it did during that time. Prosecution lawyers Erez Padan and Jenny Avni pressed for a three-judge panel, saying that the fate of the prime minister’s wife and issues of misuses of public funds have serious significance for the broader public. They said that the court has wide discretion to add judges to a case and asked rhetorically: “if not in this case, then when?” Sara’s lawyer, Yossi Cohen, slammed the prosecution’s position saying “this case over food never should have been filed and now they are trying to over complicate it.” Cohen said one judge was more than enough just as it had been enough for the Holyland trial of former prime minister Ehud Olmert...  https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Sara-Netanyahu-stands-trial-over-...

FBI uncovers potential dummycrats-Dem
coordination against Kavanaugh nomination
{conservativeinstitute.org} ~ The FBI investigation that Senate dummycrats-Democrats so passionately demanded as a condition for holding a vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh has backfired in multiple ways... Not only did federal investigators fail to corroborate any of the claims of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh, but the Wall Street Journal is now reporting that the FBI uncovered evidence of a coordinated effort by dummycrats-Democratic operatives to manipulate witnesses. Authorities have learned that Monica McLean, the “beach friend” who convinced Christine Blasey Ford to come forward with her allegations of 36-year-old sexual assault, may have tampered with a key witness in the case. A day after completing their report into allegation brought by Dr. Ford and at least two other accusers, the FBI sent a follow-on package to the White House and Senate containing key evidence detailing McLean’s attempts to influence their investigation. Included in this supplementary trove of evidence were text messages sent from Ms. McLean to Leland Keyser, Dr. Ford’s “best friend” who she maintains was present during the 1982 gathering where she says Kavanaugh assaulted her. Keyser’s persistent denial of having any knowledge of a party which fits Dr. Ford’s description has served to undermine Ford’s allegations and foster legitimate doubts her story. During her interview with FBI agents, Keyser said she felt pressured to revise her original statement and bolster Dr. Ford’s account. The Wall Street Journal reported that mutual friends of Keyser and Ford contacted the witness “to warn her that her statement was being used by Republicans to rebut the allegation against Judge Kavanaugh.”...  https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/conservative-news/fbi-coordin...

 Lindsey Graham Discusses Campaigning
Against Colleagues
by sundance
{theconservativetreehouse.com} ~ Senator Lindsey Graham 2.0 appears on Fox News with swamp gatekeeper Chris Wallace to discuss the Justice Kavanaugh confirmation and the upcoming elections...  *As with all things swampy, caution is advised until the 2.0 operating system is fully validated. One of the more interesting takeaways from this interview is a shift in perspective for Senator Graham 2.0 where he says he will now campaign against senate colleagues who joined in the smear campaign against the Supreme Court nominee.
Seedpods from the Garden of Stupid
by Clarice Feldman

{americanthinker.com} ~ Greg Gutfeld looks out on the sea of demonstrators against Brett Kavanaugh this week and characterized the display as "seedpods from the garden of stupid are blooming," and it's impossible not to agree... The people who planted those seeds include more than 1,700 law professors who said Kavanaugh should be denied confirmation because he "displayed a lack of judicial temperament" in responding to the baseless, uncorroborated charges by Christine Blasey Ford of sexual misconduct. Reviewing this campus insanity, Heather Mac Donald contends – with ample basis: The Kavanaugh hysteria has provided the country with a crash course in academic victim politics. The tribal denunciations of "privileged white males," the moral panic over fantastical accounts of sexual predation, the spectacle of Ivy League law students claiming to feel "unsafe," the assertion that a single uncorroborated outbreak of male teen hormones should cancel a lifetime of achievement in the law – all originate in the anti-Enlightenment ethos of the academy, embodied in critical race studies, feminist legal theory, and the attacks on the Socratic teaching method as anti-female and anti-"survivor."  The #BelieveSurvivors mantra is a cornerstone of the campus grievance industry but inimical to everything that a law school should teach. It's a religious gesture, not a legal one: Such belief is independent of proof, arising out of a pre-existing commitment to a narrative of ubiquitous female abuse by patriarchal white males. The "survivor" label presupposes the conclusion that evidence should establish: that the accused is guilty of an offense. The fact-finder, if there even is one, regards contradictions or holes in a woman's story as evidence of "trauma" and thus as further corroboration. According to #BelieveSurvivors logic, the Innocence Project, which exists to vacate wrongful convictions and has a presence at law schools across the country, should be disbanded.  Examples abound of student rape allegations arising out of voluntary drunken hookups, following which the self-described victim sought further sexual contact with her alleged rapist. Even if such cases weren't so common, to presume the guilt of the accused based on an accusation alone would still be an affront to due process. The current generation of elite law students will one day become judges themselves.  If they remain committed to the circular logic of #BelieveSurvivors, the rule of law is in trouble.

Americans United Against Sexual Misconduct

by Paul Jacob

{townhall.com} ~ Had Brett Kavanaugh done something terrible, he should have paid a terrible price. On that point, Americans are much more united than we seem on television, Twitter, and in your Facebook feed.

And now, after what seemed like a million-year confirmation march, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed yesterday as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, by a 50-48 Senate vote.

Many on the Left will continue to believe our newest justice repeatedly lied under oath, having abused at least three women when in high school and college. Many on the Right will view all “three” of these female accusers as political players or pawns, who probably should be punished in some way for lying about such a fine man. Someone is not telling the truth. But consider that both of these “manys” could be 100 percent mistaken.

Accusations made three and four decades after the alleged incident are certainly more difficult to prove, but we also know that traumatic memories can be hidden for decades. And even when not hidden, such memories can be too painful for a victim to express — especially in open court, or even worse, before our modern Star Chamber, a U.S. Senate committee. We also know that sometimes those memories, recovered or just finally stated publicly, are not entirely accurate.  

You might be surprised to learn how often even eye-witness identification is wrong. “Eyewitness misidentification is the greatest contributing factor to wrongful convictions proven by DNA testing,” the Innocence Project reports, “playing a role in more than 70% of convictions overturned through DNA testing nationwide.”

What do I think about who is telling the truth and who is lying? I’m part of that small minority admitting that we do not know.

Having said that, we do know a few things worth remembering.

The U.S. Senate is an embarrassment. 

Nothing new.

Also an embarrassment? The standard accounting of accusations: there were not three women accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, there were only two. That our media insistently says three accusers suggests they are missing at least 33 percent of their good sense.

“I cannot specifically say that he Brett Kavanaugh was one of the ones who assaulted me,” Julie Swetnick told NBC News. “But before this happened to me at that party, I saw Brett Kavanaugh there. I saw Mark Judge there. And they were hanging about the area where I started to feel disoriented and where the room was and where the other boys were hanging out and . . . laughing. I could hear them laughing and laughing.”

Swetnick may indeed be telling the truth — and a horrible truth at that — and yet it still doesn’t carry any weight against Kavanaugh. A maybe, could have, might have, I don’t know, I cannot specifically say . . . is not an accusation.

Further, there has so far been no corroboration for this non-accusation, and an ex-boyfriendhas spoken out to discredit Swetnick. But she does that herself: “Because i fBrett Kavanaugh was one of those people that did this to me, there is no way in the world that he should go scot-free on this and that he should be on the Supreme Court. . . . If he does, I, uh — there’s no justice in the world.”

There may be little justice in this world, but hers was a big IF. And perhaps some indication that Kavanaugh might be the unlucky stand-in for other men.

On that count, Sen. Senator scumbag-Mazie Hirono (D-HI) argued that, “Not only do women like Dr. Ford, who bravely comes forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed.” 
scumbag-Hirono went on, “I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”

“In dummycrats-Democrat’s feminist kangaroo court, Kavanaugh is a man,” Fox’sTucker Carlson responded, “and that makes him guilty.”

At National Review, John Fund explained that when Senator scumbag-Hirono’s 
dummycrats-Democrat benefactor, the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, was accused of sexual misconduct, she had sung a different tune. Very quietly. 

And more generally, we know most 
dummycrats-Democrats just effortlessly believed the decades-old, uncorroborated accusations against Kavanaugh, while struggling to pay any attention whatsoever to more substantiated charges made against dummycrats-Democratic Congressman scumbag-Keith Ellison. Perhaps just as Republicans had no trouble buying into the accounts of abuse hurled at President liar-Bill Clinton, but were not as quick to believe charges made against Alabama Judge Roy Moore . . . or Clarence Thomas . . . or the president. 

 Or Justice Brett Kavanaugh. 

Maine Senator Susan Collins not only contributed a key vote, she made a critical statement: “The facts presented do not mean that Professor Ford was not sexually assaulted that night or at some other time, but they do lead me to conclude that the allegations failed to meet the ‘more likely than not’ standard.”

You see, that Brett Kavanaugh is male or white or Republican does not make him guilty. That he was accused does not make him guilty. It is not just in court, but in the world at large, that people should be treated as innocent until proven guilty.

While there was a lack of corroboration for the charges of the other two women, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, those too deserved attention, just not the kind provided. It is more than just too bad that Senator Dianne Fein-stein did not forward on the initial accusation letter from Professor Ford to the FBI during the initial bout of investigations. Had she done so, Ford’s confidential accusation, anyway, might have received the precise consideration it merited.

In the wake of this bitter partisan, political battle, let us hope altogether that the #MeToo Movement survives. Not as a political movement, but as a non-partisan movement of people sick of the level of sexual abuse and misconduct going on.

The first item on a post-Kavanaugh #MeToo Movement should be to end the congressional slush-fund for sexual harassment and discover exactly which politicians spent $17 million of our money to hide their misconduct.

Accusers must always be heard. And believed? When their specific cases warrant belief.

CRIME!! -> ICE Deports Quarter Of A Million Illegal Aliens, 6K Gang Members In 2018

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency in Fiscal Year 2018 deported more than 256,000 illegal aliens out of the United States, including about 6,000 suspected or known gang members.

Between September 2017 and October 2018, ICE agents deported 95,360 illegal aliens living throughout the interior of the U.S. and 160,725 illegal aliens who were caught by Border Patrol crossing into the country.

Most significant are the number of deportations ICE agents conducted for the more than 95,000 illegal aliens who were living throughout the interior of the country. There are anywhere from 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. at any given time, straining the capacity of ICE.

This year, though, ICE increased deportations of illegal aliens living in the U.S. by more than 45 percent since President Obama’s last year in office, when only about 65,000 illegal aliens living in the U.S. were deported.

The number of ICE deportations of convicted criminal illegal aliens and those with pending criminal charges has increased about 11.5 percent since Fiscal Year 2016, with more than 168,000 convicted criminal and suspected criminal illegal aliens being deported out of the U.S. this year.

In a tremendous increase, ICE hiked the number of illegal alien gang members deported by more than 185 percent compared to Fiscal Year 2016. This year, nearly 6,000 illegal aliens who are known or suspected gang members were deported out of the U.S. by ICE. Compare that to the only about 2,000 illegal alien gang members were deported in Obama’s last year in office.

Likewise, ICE deported a steady level of suspected or known illegal alien terrorists, totaling about 42 deportations for Fiscal Year 2018, a slight decrease from the 45 who were deported last year.

The ICE data also reveals the effectiveness of Trump’s visa sanctions on foreign countries refusing to take back their nationals. Throughout this year, the Trump administration placed visa restrictions on Cambodia, Cuba, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, as all those nations would not take their nationals back from the U.S.

This Fiscal Year 2018, after all five nations were hit with visa sanctions, the number of nationals deported to the foreign countries skyrocketed with a 279 percent increase in deportations from the U.S. to Cambodia, a 189 percent increase in deportations to Cuba, and a nearly 150 percent increase in deportations to Guinea.

As Breitbart News most recently reported, illegal immigration to the U.S. has continuously risen over the last three months to record levels. Last month, illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border soared to levels that the country has not seen since Fiscal Year 2014, when more than 51,500 illegal aliens tried to cross the border in April 2015.

Meanwhile, illegal immigration costs American taxpayers about $116 billion every year, and the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens — granted birthright citizenship — cost taxpayers about $2.4 billion annually. There are about 300,000 “anchor babies,” the common name for U.S.-born child of illegal aliens, born every year which exceeds U.S. births in 48 states.
