It seems the Democrats’ last-ditch Hail Mary plot to delay the confirmation of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh may be a complete bust. As the left continues to spew vile, if predictable, accusations, making every attempt to delay the nomination in the hopes that the 2018 midterm elections in November somehow, someway produce the results they desire, they keep fighting to regain Congressional control.
Now the angry left is demanding that a Monday hearing on the allegations against Kavanaugh be delayed until the FBI has a chance to investigate. Turncoat Republicans (on whom the Dems had been depending for votes) proceeded to withdraw their support and fell in line after Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley declared that he would not honor the Democrats’ request.
Grassley is refusing to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, currently scheduled for Thursday. This comes after lawyers for Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 35-years-ago back in high school, stated their client is not willing to testify or appear at Monday’s hearing.
Blasey Ford claims a hazy recollection of the incident.
She freely admits she does not specifically remember the year the supposed incident happened, where the incident occurred, whose house it was in, how she got there, and whether Kavanaugh and a witness – who denies Blasey Ford’s account in totality mind you – were already upstairs when she went up, or even how she got home on the night in question.
Sounds like a story with holes in it large enough to drive a truck through… yet Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) passed a letter bearing this vague and less-than-credible account of an alleged sexual assault some 36 years prior to the FBI demanding an investigation.
A letter that is believed to have been in Feinstein’s possession for more than six weeks in which she failed to turn it over for an immediate investigation, choosing instead to wait until the last minute of a highly contentious confirmation hearing.
Now Feinstein finds herself in a real conundrum when she was caught on a hot mic with some bombshell truths about Blasey Ford.
After a lone reporter accosted Feinstein coming out of her Senate office, the 85-year-old Senator stated late yesterday afternoon: “I have no say, I’m the lead Democrat. … I think it’s really too bad that no one called [Christine Ford], or called her lawyer,” Feinstein said.
Feinstein then slipped up big time, admitting: “This is a woman who has been profoundly impacted by this. Now, I can’t say everything’s truthful. I don’t know. But I do know that you’ve got to contact her lawyers.”
Did Feinstein have a senior moment? Or has she simply told so many lies that she has gotten confused with exactly what the truth is? She has no idea if this woman, Blasey Ford, is credible or even being truthful regarding her accusations of rape?
It seems the biggest lie of all is Democrats’ listing Blasey Ford as credible when in fact her accusations of rape have simply fallen apart. CNN and MSNBC are leading the charge as they rail at Feinstein in confusion and rage. They reported this as case closed and Kavanaugh is guilty until proven innocent, and even then? Maybe not.
Former Senator Barabra Boxer said on MSNBC, “This woman is to be believed. You can believe Dr. Ford. This was attempted rape. And this is a woman who exhibits, Dr. Ford, courage, but the classic signs of post-traumatic stress.”
Kavanaugh has denied Ford’s allegations and insisted he did not attend the party where the physical assault allegedly took place. Patrick Smyth, a fellow former Georgetown Prep student whom Ford alleges was also in attendance during the party issued a statement via his lawyer standing up for Kavanaugh.
In a separate letter to Grassley and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, not only does Smyth repudiate Ford’s allegations, but he adds that he does not remember this party ever even taking place.
Smyth's statement is being cast as a denial. It's more nuanced than that.
"I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct…"

The Washington Examiner reports:
“There are multiple parts of Ford’s story that needs to be heavily scrutinized — the fact that the only alleged witness to the event denies it, the lack of evidence except for a therapist’s note that doesn’t name Kavanaugh and isn’t evidence from the time of the alleged event. She doesn’t remember much of the day except for the attack — she can’t recall when it happened, but believes it was the summer of 1982, nor can she recall how she got to the party, how she got home, or whose house she was in. She also discredits part of the therapist’s note that says four boys were in the room during the attack and now claims it was only two, a key detail that she chalks up to an error on the part of the therapist. Her only other piece of evidence is lie detector test results, which is junk science and inadmissible in court.
“In the Washington Post, Ford claimed that too many years had passed and she couldn’t remember the details, which is somewhat understandable. Yet it does still cast some level of doubt on her accusation as does her affiliation with left-wing political organizations and a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union she signed opposing Trump’s immigration policy.
“The doubt in Ford’s story is especially strong given that it follows no pattern. Kavanaugh has never been accused of sexual misconduct in the past and has led an exemplary life both professionally and privately.
“Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., also should be scrutinized for holding on to the records for weeks before revealing them and handing them over to the FBI. According to a report by the New Yorker, Feinstein’s staff believed the incident was “too long ago to merit a public discussion,” but may have changed their mind at a more politically opportune time.”

Pelosi: ‘I Didn’t Know What Ilhan Omar Said When I Defended Her 9/11 Remarks’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did a major backpedal today when she admitted she didn’t know the content of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent remarks about 9/11. That didn’t stop her from defending Omar to the hilt in the wake of criticism from President Donald Trump. Pelosi gave an interview to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour where she rejected charges of anti-Semitism against Omar and pushed back against criticism that the Democrat Party isn’t doing enough to combat it.
“I don’t think the congresswoman is anti-Semitic. I wouldn’t even put those in the same category,” Pelosi told Amanpour in Ireland. “We have no taint of that [anti-Semitism],” she added. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean that we take that bait.” No one is making accusations… it’s all out in the open for everyone to see. This woman is delusional.
Then Pelosi went on to dismiss criticisms that she hasn’t done enough to defend Omar, conceding, “Until I talk to somebody, I don’t even know what was said.” Really? You didn’t take the time to even find out? “I do know that what the president did was not right,” she added. But not Omar. Trump did nothing wrong. In fact, he did the right thing in saying we should never forget 9/11 while Omar insulted all Americans by her “some people did something” slur.
“Omar is facing blowback for downplaying the September 11, 2001, terror attack, describing it last month private fundraiser for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a day on which “some people did something,” before adding “and that all of us were starting to lose our civil liberties.”
“In reaction to the Minnesota Democrat’s remarks, President Trump shared a video to social media of Omar’s remarks and scenes of the World Trade Center engulfed in flakes shortly after it was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists. The video’s caption reads: “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”
“She’s got a way about her that’s very, very bad, I think, for our country. I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country,” the president said at an event in Minnesota on Monday.
“Several Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and 2020 Democrat candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, said President Trump was inciting violence against Omar by tweeting the clip. In a statement Saturday, Pelosi demanded the president remove the video and said Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Omar amid a growing number of death threats.
“Following the President’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family, and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” Pelosi said.
“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video,” she added.”

This knee-jerk defense of someone simply because they are in your political party is hypocritical and just wrong. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded Trump for using the “painful images of 9/11 for a political attack” against the first-term Minnesota Democrat. So, pretend it did not happen when a leftist such as Omar intimates there were no terrorists involved and just brushes off nearly 3,000 deaths? I don’t think so.
From Fox News:
“Many Republicans and conservative outlets expressed outrage at Omar’s remarks. Fellow Democrats, including some who have disagreed with Omar in the past, defended her.
“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,'” tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas. The retired Navy SEAL lost his right eye in 2012 in an explosion in Afghanistan.
“Here’s your something,” the New York Post blared on its cover beneath a photograph of the flaming towers.”
“Several of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates condemned Trump’s tweet.
“Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, said the Republican president’s tweet was an “incitement to violence” against Omar, who is Muslim-American, and others like her. O’Rourke, campaigning in South Carolina, likened the tweet to Trump’s rhetoric about Mexicans, described in the past by Trump as murderers and rapists. O’Rourke said “there is a cost and there is a consequence” to Trump’s comments.
“Warren, a Massachusetts senator, said Republican leaders in Congress “cannot take a pass on this, cannot look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening. It is happening. And those who don’t speak out in the Republican leadership are complicit in what he is doing. It’s wrong.”
“Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar noted that a New York man recently was charged with threatening Omar’s life.
“The video the president chose to send out today will only incite more hate,” Klobuchar said. “You can disagree with her words — as I have done before — but this video is wrong. Enough.”
“Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said Omar “won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we.”‘
What a bunch of anti-American schmucks. As for Pelosi, I think she knew exactly what Omar said and what she meant. She’s trying to straddle a fence here and is going to wind up impaled on it. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving feckless Marxist.

In First Year Bernie Made Over $1 Million He Donated Less Than 1% To Charity
Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had the utter gall to go on Fox News to show off that he had released ten years of tax returns and to demand that President Trump do the same. Bolshevik Bernie is one socialist who has become a millionaire thanks to American capitalism but he doesn’t want the masses to prosper the way he did. His answer to all of this is a so-called 52 percent ‘wealth tax’.
As for charity, Sanders is lousy at it as most Democrats and leftists are. Sanders earned an average of $280,975 per year from 2009 through 2015. His income skyrocketed to $1,062,626 in 2016 due to sales of his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” Ironic, no? He gave just $10,600 in charitable contributions in 2016, making up slightly less than one percent of his reported income and falling under the $21,365 average charitable contribution for Americans who earned $250,000 or more that year, according to the latest available IRS data.
The self-avowed Democratic-socialist purchased his third home in 2016. It is a $575,000 lake-front property in Vermont, according to Fox News. He’s also got a penchant for racy cars. Bernie’s an ‘elite’ socialist don’t ya know. During his 2016 presidential campaign and beyond, Sanders declared that wealth inequality was “the great moral issue of our time.” What a hypocrite.
The following year, Sanders donated $36,300 of his adjusted gross income of $1,131,925 to charity. That’s still a pittance. Behold the benefits of being a Democratic Socialist with no morals or ethics.
The filings showed that Sanders has been among the top 1 percent of earners in the U.S. According to the liberal-leaning Economic Policy Institute. Families in the U.S. earning $421,926 or more a year are part of this group.
From The Daily Caller:
“From 2009 through 2015, when Sanders was earning on average $280,975 per year, he contributed 2.06 percent to charity.
“His charitable giving rose slightly to 2.39 percent of his income from 2016 through 2018, when his average income soared to $918,615 per year.
“My wife and I do give money to charity, and we’re proud to do what we did,” Sanders said at a Fox News town hall Monday.
“A campaign spokesperson for Sanders said in a statement to the Daily Beast that while the senator believes voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can’t make up government investment in social programs, which his platform calls for.
“Over the last decade, Bernie and Jane Sanders have donated more than $100,000 to charity. Their overall charitable giving rates have been roughly in line with the average rates in America as a whole,” Sanders’s campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones said.
“In some years, they gave more than 3 or 4 percent of their income to charity. They have given to senior centers, low-income organizations, educational entities, and environmental and housing advocacy groups. They also believe that while voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can never replace ongoing public investments in major social programs and services that improve people’s lives.”’
Sanders really meant what he said in 1981 when he told attendees at a local United Way fundraiser in Vermont, “I don’t believe in charities.” Sanders, then serving as mayor of Burlington, “went on to question the ‘fundamental concepts on which charities are based’ and contended that government, rather than charity organizations, should take over responsibility for social programs,” according to the New York Times.
Leftists like Sanders knocked Trump for charitable giving and he gave many times over what Sanders donated. Socialism is inherently anti-charity. It’s anti-job and anti-freedom. Charity is a form of love for your fellow man. Not something socialists are known for.
