Senator Makes Demand Of Ford Team
{} ~ Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley sent a letter to Dr. Ford’s legal team late Thursday night asking for all of their communications with specific dummycrats-Democratic senators... the alleged witnesses to her getting assaulted, as well as the other alleged victims. Grassley specifically asked for all direct or indirect communications between Ford or her legal team and: “(1) U.S. Senators or their staffs, particularly the offices of Senators Fein-stein and scumbag-Hirono, other than your communications with me and my staff in preparation for the September 27 hearing; (2) the alleged witnesses identified by Dr. Ford (Leland Keyser, Mark Judge, and Patrick “P.J.” Smyth); and (3) Debbie Ramirez, Julie Swetnick, or their representatives.” The chairman did not specify what spurred this request. However, the Wall Street Journal may have uncovered a possible reason for it. The WSJ reported on Thursday night that Keyser, Ford’s life long friend, was pressured to revisit her initial statement. She reportedly accused another one of Ford’s friends, Monica McLean, who is a retired FBI agent, of applying said pressure...
The Politics of Hate and the Soul of Democracy

{} ~ The politics of hate will not win. So say those who have a strong abiding faith in human decency but a frail understanding of history... As noted by Eric Hoffer, the reflective student of mass movements, hate is the great unifier of political causes, the motivator of true believers. Sometimes it does win. For now, hate is winning, and it is out of control. Kelley Paul, wife of Sen. Rand Paul, writes a heartfelt plea to Sen. scumbag-Cory Booker to dial down the rhetoric of hate and incitement. The Pauls live in a state of fear. The senator was severely beaten by a deranged neighbor and still suffers the pain and physical damage of the beating. Mrs. Paul sleeps with a loaded gun by her bed. The local sheriff makes extra patrols around their home. Rather than apologize for Sen. scumbag-Booker’s incendiary comments, his staff seized on the tried-and-true “out of context” excuse, the same grasp of rhetorical straws Madonna used when she explained away her desire to blow up the White House. scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters is unapologetic about incitement, having doubled down on the get-in-their-face tactic visited upon Sarah Sanders, now the only press secretary ever to need Secret Service protection, and more recently upon Sen. Ted Cruz, who can’t go out to dinner without being confronted by an angry in-your-face group of hooligans...

{} ~ Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, on Thursday released an executive summary of the FBI’s supplemental investigation into the Brett Kavanaugh allegations...  At the Senate Judiciary Committee’s request, the FBI opened a supplemental background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh. It’s his seventh FBI background investigation in 25 years, going back to 1993. The request was for an investigation into current credible allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. In the course of its investigation, the FBI decided to reach out to eleven people, ten of whom agreed to be interviewed. The FBI reached out to all witnesses with potential firsthand knowledge of the allegations. The FBI provided to the Senate 12 detailed FD-302 reports summarizing their interviews with the witnesses as well as supporting materials cited by the witnesses during their interviews.The Supplemental Background Investigation confirms what the Senate Judiciary Committee concluded after its investigation: there is no corroboration of the allegations made by Dr. Ford or Ms. Ramirez...
Growing National Debt Threatens the Current Economic Boom

{} ~ The federal government’s fiscal year 2018 is over. In some ways, it was a banner year: economic growth quickened, average paychecks fattened, and there were more jobs available than there were people looking for work... But there are clouds on the horizon. Washington’s soaring deficit and debt could wipe out the progress being made, hitting working Americans the hardest. The Congressional Budget Office projects that the fiscal year 2018 deficit will hit $804 billion, pushing national debt to over $21 trillion. It’s a crushing tide of red ink. To put those numbers into context, consider the typical U.S. household, which last year earned $60,336. If that typical family spent like the feds, they would have entered the fiscal year more than $300,000 in debt and piled on an additional $12,000 on top of that. It’s clearly irresponsible, and even higher deficits are just around the corner. Something has got to give...
Trump Tax Schemes? Audit the liar-Clinton Foundation!
by Daniel John Sobieski

{} When conservatives were targeting the death tax, wealthy liberals were arguing that it was unfair that successful entrepreneurs could pass on their hard-earned wealth to their children... It was unfair to those whose parents weren’t successful and wealthy. The kids would be spoiled with money they did not earn or deserve while some were leaving their kids nothing but well wishes. People should not be punished because they work hard, become successful, and want to pass on the fruits of their labor, or even their ancestors’ labor, to their children. Certainly, Donald Trump’s father believed that and to the extent he managed to pass on his success and some cash with it to his son, God bless him. But here comes the New York Times accusing the Trumps of “tax schemes” to avoid paying, wait for it, their “fair share” in taxes and not take advantage of what liberals call “loopholes” in the tax code, loopholes that the likes of the NYT and Trump’s 2016 opponent, liar-Hillary “where the heck is Wisconsin” liar-Clinton. The subject came up during the 2016 debates with liar-Clinton charging with Trump essentially with tax evasion and Trump responding that successfully reducing his tax burden through legal loopholes “makes me smart.” Indeed, it does and this country has in place a huge tax preparation industry whose purpose is to help us to legally reduce our tax burden. The whole point of neutering the death tax is to bless our children with our success without forcing them to visit the IRS and the undertaker on the same day. This is the level to which the left has sunk -- attacking the dead father of a successful businessman and successful president of a country whose economy is soaring precisely because he has applied the principles of entrepreneurship to the economy -- principles like cutting taxes, gutting regulations, getting government off our backs and its greedy paws off our wallets...
dummycrats-Dems' New Anti-Gun Laws Are Also an Attack on Due Process
by David Harsanyi

The notion that certain Americans are pre-emptively guilty of wrongdoing, whether there’s any corroborating evidence to back up an accusation or not, isn’t reserved for conservatives who happen to be in contention for a Supreme Court seat. In the hierarchy of progressive values, due process is a bottom dweller.
               Over the past decade, you could see the illiberalism evolving on college campuses, where dummycrats-Democrats subverted basic standards of justice. It was the scumbag/liar-nObama administration that demanded schools judge cases of alleged sexual assaults under a “clear and convincing evidence” standard rather than on a “preponderance of evidence” standard, allowed accusers to appeal “not guilty” findings and permitted the meting out of punishment before any investigation was even conducted, among other big problems. dummycrats-Democrats are simply shepherding those corrosive standards into the real world.

Another area of American life where we continue to see egregious attacks on the presumption of innocence is gun ownership. You might remember that a couple of years ago, Democrats engaged in a much-covered congressional “sit-in” to support legislation that would have stripped Americans on secret government watchlists — hundreds of thousands of people who had never been accused, much less convicted, of any crime — of their constitutional right to bear arms.
               Sen. Dianne Fein-stein, in fact, proposed legislation that would have restricted not only American citizens on faulty watchlists but anyone who had been on any watchlist at any time during the previous five years and anyone who had traveled to select Middle Eastern countries. Apparently, dummycrats-Democrats believe limiting the number of refugees from Syria is unconstitutional but explicitly restricting the constitutional rights of Syrian immigrants here legally is just fine.
               Then again, the entire effort was a frontal attack on about half the Bill of Rights. At the time, even the American Civil Liberties Union, which has increasingly turned away from its guiding principles, argued that policies based on flawed terror lists would undermine civil liberties.
               In much the same way they are attempting to sink the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, dummycrats-Democrats relied on theatrics, bombastic rhetoric and a compliant media, which framed the issue exactly how they had hoped. You can imagine such bills will reappear when they’re back in charge. Until then, though, dummycrats-Democrats have been doing some gun grabbing — and I don’t mean it figuratively — on the local level.
               California, a state that already features the strictest gun control laws in the country, just enacted a law that raises the allowable age to buy a shotgun or rifle from 18 to 21. The United States might be willing to hand weapons to young men and women who volunteer to protect their country, but Gov. Jerry Brown doesn’t believe those young men and women should be able to protect their own property or families.
               An even more outrageous new law bans Californians who’ve been hospitalized more than once in a year for mental health issues from owning a gun.
               Federal law already prohibits the sale of a gun to anyone who “has been adjudicated as a mental defective.” Until now, a person had an option to appeal the ban and show “a preponderance of evidence” that he would use firearms in “a safe and lawful manner.” Now California bans onetime patients from owning firearms for the rest of their lives. This is an excellent way to stigmatize people who suffer from maladies that often have nothing to do with violence or criminality.
               Now, I was going to ask the reader to imagine an alternate scenario in which Republicans pushed a bill prohibiting those who have been in hospitals — for, say, nervous exhaustion or an addiction — from being able to freely express their opinions in public ever again. If a law-abiding American can be stripped of his Second Amendment rights, then why not his First Amendment rights? But then, these days, I imagine many  dummycrats-Democrats would simply answer, “It depends on what the person is going to say.
               Another California law allows police to verbally ask to confiscate a gun rather than make their case in a written request. Under “red flag laws,” guns can be confiscated from citizens who’ve never been charged with, much less convicted of, breaking any law. And it’s getting easier and easier to do it.
               All it takes in many states is for a family member, neighbor or co-worker to accuse you of a pre-crime. One of Maryland’s many new laws (signed by Republican Gov. Larry Hogan) allows the police to confiscate weapons for up to a year — or until the next person accuses you of a crime you are only yet to commit.
               There is risible evidence that these new regulations will stop mass shootings or lower gun crime. But as William Rosen, deputy legal director for Everytown for Gun Safety, explains, “red flag laws” are needed to “step into that gap.” What gap? You know, the pesky space between protecting the ideal of presuming innocence and completely ignoring it when you feel like it.
