The Supreme Court Justice nomination process has been a disaster. Especially given the divisive nature of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings. However, Republican Senators have now revealed information regarding the negative machinations of Democratic Senators to undermine the Kavanaugh nomination.
Chicks on the Right reported,
“If Dianne Feinstein cared about Christine Ford and protecting women from the “monster” that is Brett Kavanaugh she would have moved forward when she heard about the allegation months ago. If she really cared about women she would have immediately shared the information with Chuck Grassley and the FBI because Brett Kavanaugh could have attacked more women.
Feinstein cares about protecting women, right? Of course not. She knows Brett Kavanaugh isn’t a sexual predator and she held onto the information until the last second when it was clear that Democrats wouldn’t be able to defeat Kavanaugh on the merits.
That’s one of the biggest takeaways from the hearing on Thursday. Feinstein has become a national embarrassment. Orrin Hatch and Lindsey Graham called her out for it. From Conservative Tribune:
Democratic Sen.Diane Feinstein knew about the allegations from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as far back as July. Despite this, she never uttered a word about it until the 11th hour when it appeared Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh would be confirmed.
As Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Orrin Hatch pointed out Thursday, Feinstein could have asked Kavanaugh about the allegations privately or publicly. She did neither.
Graham and Hatch stood up for Kavanaugh against what the Democrats have been saying and doing throughout the confirmation process. Graham reminded Democrats he and other Republican senators voted for Obama SCOTUS nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagen because of their judicial qualities.
From Washington Times:
Jabbing his finger at Democrats sitting across the dais, the South Carolina Republican said they had made clear from the start that they would use any tactics to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and they have lived up to that dark promise.
He particularly singled out Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the panel, saying she was coaching Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford to hire an attorney a month earlier but sat on the allegations only to spring them at the last moment through press leaks, ensuring the unproven claims played out in stark public fashion.
According to the timeline presented at the hearing, she was first alerted to Ms. Blasey Ford’s allegations in a July 30 letter. She reached out to the accuser and encouraged her to lawyer up, but she did not share the allegations with the rest of the committee.
She also didn’t ask for an FBI investigation, nor did she confront Judge Kavanaugh at any of several opportunities — their private meeting, in a closed-door session senator held with the judge earlier this month, or during four days of hearings.
But just before the committee was scheduled to vote on the nomination, word of the July 30 letter leaked to the press. On Friday morning, Feinstein had the audacity to call Republicans out for how they handled the process. Feinstein held onto the information until she needed it. There’s no doubt about that. She’s running for re-election in California and even though she’s running against a candidate even more liberal than her it’s probably time for her to go away.”

Feinstein is known for being controversial. In January of this past year, she caused problems when as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee she purposefully released a transcript of a Committee interview from 2017 with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson. It was about the dossier related to the 2016 presidential election and Russian interference.
Recently, reports were confirmed that she had had a Chinese spy employed in her office as her personal driver. He was a gofer, a liaison, and an Asian-American in the community for 20 years. Intelligence agencies found that he had reported in the past to China’s Ministry of State Security.
Despite being warned five years ago by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Feinstein kept him on. After being interviewed by authorities, then Feinstein forced him to resign, not quit. Yet, no criminal charges were filed and he was let go.
It is not just her ethical history that raises concerns but her history regarding Supreme Court Justice nominations. Kavanaugh is not the first conservative nominees she has voted against just for being conservative. In late 2005, she was one of only five Democratic Senators who voted against John Roberts in the Judiciary Committee.
Early in the next year, she confirmed that she would not vote for Samuel Alito. Yet in 2009 she vociferously supported nominee, Sonia Sotomayor. Again, in March 2016 she supported President Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland and criticized Republicans for refusing to vote on his nomination.
Share if you agree that Feinstein’s record proves she is not reliable.
Share if you believe that Feinstein has been hypocritical in the SCOUTS nomination process.
Share if you think that Sen. Hatch and Sen. Graham exposed Sen. Feinstein for who he really is.

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.
