{} ~ The person who sent prominent dummycrats-Democrats explosive devices in the mail could spend the rest of their life in prison... Federal law states that anyone who "transports or receives, or attempts to transport or receive, in interstate or foreign commerce any explosive with the knowledge or intent that it will be used to kill, injure, or intimidate any individual or unlawfully to damage or destroy any building, vehicle, or other real or personal property" can be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison. With 10 suspicious packages currently being investigated, that's a potential 100-year sentence. Injuring someone as part of a bomb threat can lead to a maximum 20 years in prison, and killing someone can lead to a life sentence or even the death penalty. In the cases seen so far, which involve packages sent to former Secretary of State scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton, former President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama, billionaire philanthropist scumbag-George Soros, former Vice President loose lips-Joe Biden, former CIA Director scumbag/commie-John Brennan, and actor scumbag-Robert De Niro, no one has been hurt and none of the devices detonated at the scene. Federal law also provides for sentences of between five and 20 years for damaging or attempting to damage buildings or other property. That could tack on even more time. In 2014, a man was sentenced to seven years in federal prison after he was found guilty of making a threat by means of explosive material, transportation of explosive material, mailing an injurious item and possession of explosive materials by a felon... Of course, they blame Trump for the bomber.

{} ~ What are the costs of adopting socialism? It’s a good question, and one not asked frequently enough... But a new report by the Council of Economic Advisors at the White House does ask the question. The answer? Socialism destroys lives and societies. The historical record is clear: Everywhere it has been tried, socialism has done harm. It’s a cautionary tale that should be taught to every new generation. American socialists like Sen. commie-Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez overlook the misery socialism has wrought in countries like the U.S.S.R., North Korea, and Venezuela. They maintain that they want socialism without dictatorship or state brutality. But even if that were achieved, socialism would still fail. As the White House report points out...
Kill the wrong spider, go to jail!
{} ~ The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a lawsuit by environmentalist groups seeking to expand the reach of the government’s criminal statutes under the Endangered Species Act... WildEarth Guardians filed the lawsuit in 2013 contending someone doesn’t have to be aware of the Endangered Species Act or intend to violate it to be convicted, fined and jailed under the law. The 9th Circuit ruled, however, the environmentalists didn’t have standing to sue. The court said the groups “could not show that overturning the United States’ interpretation would benefit any of the environmental interests the groups cited.” The Sacramento-based Pacific Legal Foundation represented the New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association, New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau, and New Mexico Federal Lands Council...
IAEA Ignores Evidence Of Continued 
Iran Nuke Bomb Development

{} ~ According to a paper published on Tuesday by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS)... the documents recovered by Israeli intelligence from Iran’s hidden nuclear archive and revealed by premier Netanyahu in April of 2018  show Iran conducted significantly  more high explosive tests at the Parchin nuclear site than previously understood.” This leads to the fact that Iran has already overcome some of the obstacles to building a bomb which experts thought it had not yet mastered. Based on this new paper we learn Iran was a lot closer to a nuclear weapon than we thought and the work at Parchin may still be going on. The report, authored by the think tank’s director David Albright, by former IAEA Deputy Director General Olli Heinonen and other top experts, said, “The additional evidence specifically mentions explosions and radioactivity at the Parchin site, and this information far more vividly establishes Iran’s nuclear weapons-related activities there. Parchin is a crucial part of Iran’s nuclear program whose operations remained relatively secret despite the JCPOA nuclear deal and assurances made to this country by the previous administration. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has long sought access to Parchin which has long been suspected of being the location where Iran was developing it’s detonation systems for nuclear weapons. In October 2014 Iran admitted to using Parchin to test exploding bridge wires used as nuclear detonators, but they claimed the test explosions were not for weapons development. However, the newly recovered documents prove that Iran was testing detonators for Nuclear weapons at Parchin. They show that Iran had set up labs and pressure rooms at the Parchin base and conducted experiments on the creating explosion chain... 
See scumbag-Gore Admit Global-warming Warning Torqued
{} ~ Is that what people should expect from international panels expressing warnings about global warming? After all, it means to apply a twisting force, or “twisted.”... scumbag-Al Gore believes so. During a recent interview, he was discussing the recent warning from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that horrible things are ahead for humanity if it continues to use carbon fuels. It was PBS host Judy Woodruff who noted the panel members were “painting a much more alarming picture of what we face than we had previously known.” scumbag-Gore, the vice president under liar-Bill Clinton and a failed dummycrats-Democratic nominee in 2000, said, “The language that the IPCC used in presenting it was torqued up a little bit, appropriately – how else do they get the attention of policy-makers around the world?”...

{} ~ What did the Kavanaugh controversy tell us about our historical moment? It underscored what we already know, that America is politically and culturally divided and that activists and the two parties don’t just disagree with but dislike and distrust each other. We know also the Supreme Court has come to be seen not only as a constitutional and inevitably political body but as a cultural body. It follows cultural currents, moods, assumptions. It has frequently brushed past the concept of democratic modesty to make decisions that would most peacefully be left to the people, at the ballot box, after national debate. So citizens will experience the court as having great power over their lives, and nominations to the court will inevitably draw passion. And this was a fifth conservative seat on a nine-person court. 

But the Kavanaugh hearings had some new elements. There were no boundaries on inquiry, no bowing to the idea of a private self. Accusations were made about the wording of captions under yearbook photos. The Senate showed a decline in public standards of decorum. A significant number of senators no longer even pretend to have class or imitate fairness. The screaming from the first seconds of the first hearings, the coordinated interruptions, the insistent rudeness and accusatory tones—none of it looked like the workings of the ordered democracy that has been the envy of the world.

Two Republican senators this week wrote to me with a sound of mourning. One found it “amazing” and “terrifying” that “seemingly, and without very much thought, nearly half the United States Senate has abandoned the presumption of innocence in this country, all to achieve a political goal.” The other cited “a truly disturbing result: One of the great political parties abandoning the Constitutionally-based traditions of due process and presumption of innocence.”

At the very least, Senate dummycrats-Democrats overplayed their hand.

My bias in cases of sexual abuse and assault, and it is a bias, is in favor of the woman. I give her words greater weight because I have not in my personal experience seen women lie about such allegations, and I know the reasons they have, in the past, kept silent. If you know your biases and are serious, you will try to be fair—not to overcorrect but to maintain standards. On Sept. 16, the day the charges made by Christine Blasey Ford appeared in the Washington Post, I was certain that more witnesses and information would come forward. We would see where justice lay. The great virtue of the #MeToo movement is that the whole phenomenon was broken open by numbers and patterns—numbers of victims, patterns of behavior, and the deep reporting that uncovered both. In this case great reporters tried to nail down Ms. Ford’s story. But they did not succeed. The New Yorker story that followed was dramatic but unpersuasive, a hand grenade whose pin could not be pulled. The final allegation, about rape-train parties and spiked punch, was not in the least credible.

It was Ms. Ford’s story that was compelling, but in need of support or corroboration. It did not come.

It was a woman who redeemed the situation, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine. In her remarks announcing her vote, she showed a wholly unusual respect for the American people, and for the Senate itself, by actually explaining her thinking. Under intense pressure, her remarks were not about her emotions. She weighed the evidence, in contrast, say, to Sen. scumbag-Cory Booker, who attempted to derail the hearings from the start and along the way compared himself to Spartacus. Though Spartacus was a hero, not a malignant buffoon.

Ms. Collins noted that she had voted in favor of justices nominated by George W. Bush, Barack scumbag/liar-nObama and Donald Trump. She considers qualifications, not party. She reviewed Brett Kavanaugh’s 12-year judicial record, including more than 300 opinions, speeches and law-review articles; she met with Judge Kavanaugh for more than two hours, and spoke with him again for an hour by phone with more questions.

She judged him centrist in his views and well within the mainstream of judicial thought. He believes, he told her, the idea of precedent is not only a practice or tradition but a tenet rooted in the Constitution.

As to Ms. Ford’s charges, since the confirmation process is not a trial, the rules are more elastic. “But certain fundamentally legal principles about due process, the presumption of innocence, and fairness do bear on my thinking, and I cannot abandon them.”

“We must always remember that it is when passions are most inflamed that fairness is most in jeopardy.” She called the gang-rape charge an “outlandish allegation” with no credible evidence.

At this point it was understood the 
dummycrats-Democrats had gone too far.

It is believable, said Ms. Collins, that Ms. Ford is a survivor of sexual assault and that the trauma “has upended her life.” But the four witnesses she named could not corroborate her account. None had any recollection of the party; her lifelong friend said under penalty of felony that she neither remembers such an event nor even knows Brett Kavanaugh.

Ms. Collins said she has been “alarmed and disturbed” by those who suggest that unless Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination was rejected, the Senate would somehow be condoning sexual assault: “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

The atmosphere surrounding the nomination has been “politically charged” and reached “fever pitch” even before the Ford and other charges. It has been challenging to separate fact from fiction. But a decision must be made. Judge Kavanaugh’s record has been called one of “an exemplary public servant, judge, teacher, coach, husband, and father.” Her hope is he “will work to lessen the divisions in the Supreme Court so that we have far fewer 5-4 decisions and so that public confidence in our judiciary and our highest court is restored.”

And so, she said, she would vote to confirm.

It was a master class in what a friend called “old-style thoroughness combined with a feeling for justice.”

A word on the destructive theatrics we now see gripping parts of the 
dummycrats-Democratic Party. The howling and screeching that interrupted the hearings and the voting, the people who clawed on the door of the court, the ones who chased senators through the halls and screamed at them in elevators, who surrounded and harassed one at dinner with his wife, who disrupted and brought an air of chaos, who attempted to thwart democratic processes so that the people could not listen and make their judgments:

Do you know how that sounded to normal people, Republican and 
dummycrats-Democratic and unaffiliated? It sounded demonic. It didn’t sound like “the resistance” or #MeToo. It sounded like the shrieking in the background of an old audiotape of an exorcism.

dummycrats-Democratic leaders should stand up to the screamers. They haven’t, because they’re afraid of them. But things like this spread and deepen.

Stand up to your base. It’s leading you nowhere good. And you know it.
