Since Judge Kavanaugh was announced as President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court Senate Democrats have opposed his nomination. Now that there are sexual assault allegations out against him they are even more opposed to him. However, certain information that is pertinent to the allegations were kept away from the Senate Judiciary Committee so that they could consider all the facts.

Fox News reported,
“President Trump briefly singled out U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein during his West Virginia rally Saturday evening, insinuating that the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee leaked a letter from a woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades earlier.
“When you look at releases and leaks and they say, ‘No, I didn’t do it.’ Dianne Feinstein, did you leak?,” Trump said to a chorus of boos from the crowd. “Remember her answer? Uh uh, uh, what? No, no, I didn’t leak. Maybe she didn’t, but that was the worst body language I’ve ever seen.”
Trump, who was in the state stumping for GOP candidates ahead of the midterm elections, was referring to the letter that Feinstein, of California, received from Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford in July. Feinstein maintains she never came forward with Ford’s claim because Ford had requested confidentiality.
“I don’t believe my staff would leak it,” Feinstein said in response to a question Thursday from Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas. “I have not asked that question directly.” Feinstein posted a Twitter message Saturday evening, denying that her office leaked the letter.
“From the moment I received Dr. Ford’s letter my actions have been consistent with her wishes,” Feinstein wrote. “We kept her letter confidential and did not leak the contents or its existence to anyone. Survivors have a right to decide how their stories are made public.”
But one way or another, news of the letter was eventually leaked, sparking a divisive nationwide debate over Kavanaugh’s nomination to the highest court and Democrats calling for an FBI investigation into the allegations.
Ford’s letter alleging Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her was first reported Sept. 12 by the website the Intercept. The Intercept reporter who broke the story tweeted: “Feinstein’s staff did not leak the letter to The Intercept.”

Ford claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students. More women have since come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. On Thursday, Ford and Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the allegations.
“Brett’s assault on me drastically altered my life,” Ford told the committee. At the hearing, Kavanaugh maintained his innocence and sparred with Democratic senators. “This confirmation process has become a national disgrace,” Kavanaugh told the committee.
Trump on Friday ordered the FBI to conduct a limited “supplemental background” investigation into the matter. Maryland lawmakers have also called on authorities to investigate Ford’s claims — and the authorities said they would do so, provided that an accuser files a formal complaint.”
Ford’s accusations are serious. She has accused Judge Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed to try and rape her while they were at a house party in Maryland. This allegedly took place in the early 1980’s while they were in school. She further alleges that he tried remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth to silence her. When this allegedly occurred Ford was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17.
Her husband, Russell Ford, has backed up her allegations. He has reported to media outlets that his wife has detailed the alleged sexual assault to him before in the past. Russell indicated they discussed it in a couples therapy session in 2012.
During the process of therapy, Russell said that his wife talked about being trapped in a room with drunken boys while she was in school and being pinned down where they tried preventing her from creaming for help.
Now, Ford is an accomplished academic. She serves as a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California where she lives with her family. Ford specializes in design and analysis as a biostatistician regarding clinical trials and other intervention evaluations.
Since 1988, she taught and worked at Stanford University, which she has been recognized for by Holton-arms, a school she graduated from in Bethesda, Maryland. In consortium, she still teaches there according to the local newspaper.
Time will tell what the outcome of the FBI investigation is, and what the Senate ultimately decides to do in voting for Kavanaugh. Regardless, Sen. Feinstein tampered with evidence and this will likely have some implications going forward.

Bernie Sanders: “There Is No Middle Ground,” ‘We’re Going To Stop Using Gas & Coal’
Gotta love when Millionaire communists lecture you on what you can and can’t do. Good thing he will never be elected President!
Via The Daily Caller:
2020 candidate and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders said that the United States has to stop using gasoline and coal, and that “there ain’t no middle ground” on the issue.
“It is no secret that we must transition away from fossil fuels, period. End of discussion. There ain’t no middle ground…There is no middle ground,” Sanders said during a speech Thursday in California.
The Independent Vermont senator released a climate plan Thursday modeled after the “Green New Deal” that called for $16 trillion in new spending to fight climate change.
A key part of the plan is “Justice for frontline communities,” which refers to “under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly – to recover from, and prepare for, the climate impacts, including through a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund.”
Sanders’ plan, which is modeled as a “Green New Deal,” also targets “environmental racism.”
“The Green New Deal must serve to address modern and historical inequities and environmental racism,” it reads.
Sanders has sought to separate himself from the field of other 2020 Democratic contenders by proposing far-left plans on a variety of issues.
On health care, Sanders supports a “Medicare for All” style plan which would eliminate private health insurance plans and give free health care to illegal immigrants. Continue Reading
Bernie Sanders Says His $16-Trillion Green New Deal-Like Plan Will Create 20 Million Jobs
Via Daily Caller:
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a $16.3-trillion plan similar to the Green New Deal on Thursday, which he says will create 20 million jobs.
The plan aims to make 100% of energy for U.S. electricity and transportation renewable by 2030 and have “complete decarbonization” by 2050, according to its outline.
Bernie Sanders just spoke at a rally in downtown Sacramento. Trump supporters showed up & they didn't attack or beat anyone. They just politely discussed their political beliefs with those in attendance. Wonder if MSM will cover that. @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @Scavino45 pic.twitter.com/e1e8gAbZPW

“As President, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of climate change and mobilize the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system,” his plan reads.

Dem Rep Says We Need Illegal Immigrants To Mow ‘Our Beautiful Lawns’ – WATCH
That is some serious white supremacy right there. The Democrats racist colors always show. They can’t hide that for long…and they sure make it clear on how they love slaves.
It isn’t conservatives that are racist…it’s the Democrat party!
Via The Daily Wire:
Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) explained to his constituents earlier in the week that illegal immigrants are necessary members of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District because they are willing to take on the jobs that the community’s teenagers will no longer do.
“We have to think about the jobs because the reason this happens is because there are a lot of jobs in our community that, like it or not, for better or worse, Americans are not willing to take,” Malinowski told the crowd while appearing at a town hall meeting.
“I mean, who do you think is taking care of our seniors? Fifty percent of the eldercare workers in the state of New Jersey are immigrants, most of them legal — most of them documented — but certainly some of them are not,” he continued. “Who do you think is mowing our beautiful lawns in Somerset County? We don’t usually ask but a lot of those workers are undocumented.”
Malinowski contended that the illegal immigrants residing in the area are able to fill the gap as teenagers who historically have been working menial jobs are now focused more on a white collar education in the technology sector.
“There just aren’t a lot of kids who — sorry — are from Montgomery High [School], who are going to be doing that full time,” the Democratic lawmaker said. “You guys are going into robotics, for goodness sake.”
Malinowski’s controversial comments come as he prepares to seek a second term in the congressional swing district. The freshman congressman, who previously served as the Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor under former President Barack Obama, successfully flipped his red district blue during the 2018 midterm elections after he edged out longtime incumbent Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ).
Four of New Jersey’s twelve House districts were won by Democrats after decades of being reliably red, including Malinowski’s newly acquired seat. Continue Reading
