The Kavanaugh spectacle yesterday made me furious. To see a good, brilliant man like Kavanaugh dragged through the political muck like he was yesterday is simply disgusting. What you saw yesterday was a permanent fracture in Congress between the left and the right. Game on.
A key witness is now coming forward just hours before the vote on Kavanaugh takes place and he has a game-changing statement. It literally changes everything at play here.
Mark Judge, Kavanaugh’s old high school friend, penned a letter yesterday that says he does “not recall the events” described by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during her testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. I have no doubt of that because I personally don’t believe they ever happened. I think this is an actual conspiracy cooked up by the left at the eleventh hour to stop Kavanaugh and get back at Trump.
“I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes,” Judge wrote. Neither did anyone else it would seem. There’s no tangible evidence that any of this ever happened and it used to be in this country that you had to prove your case. It was ‘innocent until proven guilty’. What happened to that premise?
As Mark Judge wrote that letter he knew it was “under penalty of a felony.” He sent it to the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Diane Feinstein, through his attorney Barbara Van Gelder. “I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved,” the letter said, and referred to his previous letter sent on Sept. 18.
Judge didn’t want to be involved, but he also could not in good conscience just stand by and watch an honorable man like Brett Kavanaugh be destroyed by the left like this. The letter was released hours before members of the Judiciary Committee are set to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. The actual vote is expected to take place at about 10:30 a.m. ET. A successful committee vote is not essential to send a nomination to the floor.
Judge’s lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder, stated on Thursday that he “does not want to comment about these events publicly” and “will not respond to any media inquiries.” Judge “is willing to answer written questions, and he has. In addition, he is willing to participate in a confidential, fact-finding investigation.” Understandably, he does not want to expose himself and his family to harassment and interrogation over this.
“As a recovering alcoholic and a cancer survivor, I have struggled with depression and anxiety,” Judge’s letter said. “As a result, I avoid public speaking.” His attorney says that Judge needs to stay out of the spotlight for his health.
“I told him to leave town. He is being hounded. He is a recovering alcoholic and is under unbelievable stress,” Judge’s attorney told the media. “He needed for his own health to get out of this toxic environment and take care of himself.”

Judge did make it clear in his letter that though he and Kavanaugh were friends in high school, they have not seen or spoken to each other directly in years. They obviously went their separate ways to lead their lives. Now, they find themselves thrown together over a concocted scandal that is devastating everyone it touches.
From Fox News:
“Ford claimed Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed during a party in Maryland, attempted to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming. She said he and Judge had also turned the music up to a loud volume.
“Ford claimed she was able to escape to a bathroom and then outside of the house when Judge jumped into the fray and sent everyone in the room “tumbling.”
“Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., asked Kavanaugh during the hearing if he was one of the characters, Bart O’Kavanaugh, in Judge’s book called “Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk,” which was written in 1997. Kavanaugh said the book is a work of fiction and Leahy would “have to ask him [Judge].”
“Judge has become an author, filmmaker, and journalist who has written for conservative outlets including The Daily Caller and The Weekly Standard, according to reports.”
This will now hinge on several key swing-vote senators who remained outwardly undecided on Kavanaugh’s fate late Thursday. After the hearing, moderate Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) as well as Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) huddled to discuss the nomination, Fox News confirmed.
The fab progressive four talked for approximately 30 minutes before a GOP conference meeting Thursday evening ahead of Friday’s planned Judiciary Committee vote on whether to recommend Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the full Senate.
Fox News is reporting that the first floor vote to debate the nomination is scheduled for Saturday, a vote to end floor debate and overcome a filibuster would be Monday, with a confirmation vote on Tuesday.

New York Times Editor: We’re Switching From Russia Collusion To ‘Trump Is Racist’
The New York Times and others have repeatedly tried to take down President Trump with libelous statements on the Russian collusion front and have failed spectacularly every single time. Now, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet has accidentally admitted that for two years his far-left newspaper was “built” around spreading a hoax. Oops. But it’s never too late to shift propaganda in this political war.
He was secretly recorded saying just that and it got out. Baquet also admitted the Times’ staff is loaded with left-wingers “who cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden.” Do tell. I’m shocked I tell you. Simply shocked.
What is actually shocking is this recording comes by way of the leftist rag, Slate. They got their mitts on the recording of a company-wide meeting Baquet held with his staffers and it is an illuminating look at how leftist media utilizes and manipulates propaganda for political effect. Why Slate would let that out is puzzling, to say the least.
Baquet has now admitted that for two long years his leftist newspaper was “built” around the Russia Collusion Hoax: “It got trickier after [inaudible] … went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character. We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well.”
Truly well? Do you mean by lying and falsifying facts? They did that very well. There was not a shred of evidence that Trump colluded with Russia yet the NYT reported on it as fact for two years and in actuality, made stuff up to fit that narrative.
So the NY Times (D-NY) is back to hosting political strategy sessions on how to destroy @realDonaldTrump. Collusion failed. Obstruction came up short. Now they’ve returned to the favorite cry of every liberal who’s losing an argument: RACISM! A sad commentary on “news” in America https://t.co/en4Y8nQCOa

But the New York Times has seen the light, so to speak. The Russia collusion hoax hasn’t worked so now they are switching tactics… Trump is now a racist and everything will revolve around that lie: “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred[.]”
The truth is that if Trump were actually a racist it would have come out decades ago. This is a last-ditch effort to besmirch a sitting president so a communist can take his place in the next election. It’s subversion and in my book… a form of treason.
You can still taste the salty leftist tears from being disappointed that Mueller did not take down Trump: “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?”
So, while the NYT, WaPo, and other lefty rags spewed lies and propaganda, outlets such as Breitbart, The Daily Wire, and The Daily Caller among others did real reporting and told the truth. For their efforts, a number of them have been banned on social media.
“Baquet pretty much spends the rest of the 90 minutes meeting fielding questions from individuals who are supposed to be professionals but who only want to know how they can call Trump and his supporters racists even more often.
“You see, according to the Times’ staff, everything is racist because everything really is racist.
“You probably think that whole “everything is racist” thing is me being sarcastic. Here’s a direct quote from a staffer [emphasis added]:
“Hello, I have another question about racism. I’m wondering to what extent you think that the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country should play into our reporting. Just because it feels to me like it should be a starting point, you know? Like these conversations about what is racist, what isn’t racist. I just feel like racism is in everything. It should be considered in our science reporting, in our culture reporting, in our national reporting. And so, to me, it’s less about the individual instances of racism, and sort of how we’re thinking about racism and white supremacy as the foundation of all of the systems in the country.
“Good grief. What a dispiriting and not-at-all surprising look at the ignorant whack jobs in charge of our media — and in the case of the New York Times, not just the media, but what is considered the elite of the media elite. What are they obsessed with? What do these conspiracy-loons see everywhere in 2019 America…?
“Here we sit in the most tolerant, diverse country in the world just a few years after having twice elected a black president with the middle name “Hussein,” and the people in charge of the media are breaking down into pools of self-pity because they want to scream racist at us even more than they already have.
“And again, let’s not forget that the only way they can try to pretend America is racist is by way of massive hoaxes: the Very Fine People Hoax, the Covington Hoax, the George Zimmerman Is White Hoax, the Hands Up Don’t Shoot Hoax, the Jussie Smollett Hoax, and the countless hoax hate crimes they spread over and over and over again without scrutiny.”
Good grief is an understatement. The NYT does not cover real news anymore like the rising tide of anti-Semitism in this country. They are too busy protecting terrorists and radicals, while smearing the president and conservatives, to do their actual jobs.
The New York Times openly admits that anti-Jewish hate crimes don’t interest the Times because white supremacists are not behind them: “If anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York, it is to some extent because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy. During the past 22 months, not one person caught or identified as the aggressor in an anti-Semitic hate crime has been associated with a far right-wing group, Mark Molinari, commanding officer of the police department’s Hate Crimes Task Force, told me.”
But young white males are domestic terrorists according to these people. Geez. Not communist Antifa or Black Lives Matter or the Nation of Islam or the Black Panthers… white boys are the ticket, y’all.
Since the media is out of Russian ammo and they detest Trump, they have to have another way of smearing him and throwing the race card is their final desperate move in this political dance. Nothing else has stuck to Teflon-Don. Look for them to cry ‘racism’ non-stop for the next two years in their latest contrived hoax against the president. But you won’t hear them cover actual racism because it does not fit their political narrative. It has to be Trump, Trump, Trump! or it’s not news.
The NYT is a peddler of hate. No wonder they had to stop publishing political cartoons because the editorial staff can’t recognize blatant anti-Semitism. These aren’t journalists anymore… they are Brown Shirts. They feel they’ll get away with calling Trump a racist. After all, they got away with the Russian crap for two years.
Wow! The Deputy Editor of the Failing New York Times was just demoted. Should have been Fired! Totally biased and inaccurate reporting. The paper is a Fraud, Zero Credibility. Fake News takes another hit, but this time a big one!
