Watch: McConnell Rips Democrats To Pieces Over Kavanaugh Smear Campaign

Good, McConnell, now hold to it.

Via Daily Wire:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Senate Democrats on Monday for running a “choreographed smear campaign” against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

“Let me start with a quote: ‘I’m going to fight this nomination with everything I’ve got.’ That was the Democratic Leader on television mere hours after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court,” McConnell began.

“Others pledged their opposition before he was even named,” McConnell continued. “Before they’d reviewed a lick of evidence. Before they’d heard a minute of testimony. The Democrats had already made up their minds and chosen their tactics: delay, obstruct, and resist. Whatever it took — whatever the truth really was — they were going to do whatever they could to stop this qualified, experienced, and mainstream nominee.”

Kavanaugh Sends Defiant Letter To Grassley, Feinstein: ‘I Will Not Be Intimidated’

Here’s where the rubber hits the road, Republicans. Either you stand against the dirty tricks or you might as well pack it in now.

Via Daily Caller:

Brett Kavanaugh sent a defiant letter Monday to the Senate in the wake of a new sexual misconduct allegation brought against him Sunday. Kavanaugh sent the scathing letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein on Monday afternoon.

Kavanaugh wrote that he will not be “intimidated” by the “smear” accusations against him.

“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats against my family will not drive me out. The character assassination will not succeed,” Kavanaugh said.

The letter called the accusations against him a “grotesque and obvious character assassination.”

Yale Law Professors Cancel 31 Classes So Students Can Protest Kavanaugh

To hell with the Constitution, social justice will prevail.

Via Free Beacon:

Professors at Yale Law School, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alma mater, cancelled class on Monday to allow students to protest Kavanaugh’s confirmation in light of sexual assault allegations made against him.

One professor, James Forman, cancelled his Criminal Law class in an email to his students, writing “I just received a request to cancel class on Monday. I understand that some students want to go to D.C. to protest or otherwise engage with the Kavanaugh hearings. Criminal Law is cancelled”

Not all classes were cancelled though, according to Yale Law spokeswoman Debra Krozer.

“Yale Law School did not cancel all classes,” she said. “Many faculty members chose to reschedule or cancel their own classes today. And some held classes as usual.”

Law & Crime reports that 31 classes were cancelled due to the protests. Yale Law School students and alumni have organized “sit ins” against Kavanaugh’s nomination both on Yale’s campus and in Washington, D.C.

On Monday morning, Yale Law School’s main hallway was lined with students wearing black and sitting in silence.

Poll: 71% Of American Voters Think Politicians Only Raise Race Issues to Get Elected

Looking at you, Dems.

Via Rasmussen:

As campaigning for November’s midterm elections ramps up, voters are split over the level of racial discussions on the campaign trail but think those issues only come up in the first place to get votes.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 71% of Likely U.S. Voters think most politicians raise racial issues to get elected, not to address real problems. Just 15% think they raise those issues because they want to address real problems, but 14% are undecided.

Trump Set To Double Down On His Commitment To ‘America First’ When He Speaks At The United Nations On Tuesday

The UN is anti-American.

Via Daily Mail:

President Donald Trump is poised to redouble his commitment to ‘America First’ on the most global of stages this week.

In the sequel to his stormy U.N. debut on Tuesday, Trump will stress his dedication to the primacy of U.S. interests while competing with Western allies for an advantage on trade and shining a spotlight on the threat that he says Iran poses to the Middle East and beyond.

One year after Trump stood at the rostrum of the U.N. General Assembly and derided North Korea’s Kim Jong-un as ‘Rocket Man,’ the push to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula is a work in progress, although fears of war have given way to hopes for rapprochement.

Scores of world leaders, even those representing America’s closest friends, remain wary of Trump.

In the 12 months since his last visit to the U.N., the president has jolted the global status quo by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, starting trade conflicts with China and the West and embracing Russia’s Vladimir Putin even as the investigation into the U.S. president’s ties to Moscow moves closer to the Oval Office.

Long critical of the United Nations, Trump delivered a warning shot ahead of his arrival by declaring that the world body had ‘not lived up to’ its potential.

‘It’s always been surprising to me that more things aren’t resolved,’ Trump said in a weekend video message, ‘because you have all of these countries getting together in one location but it doesn’t seem to get there. I think it will.’

If there is a throughline to the still-evolving Trump doctrine on foreign policy, it is that the president will not subordinate American interests on the world stage, whether for economic, military or political gain.

Swiss Voters Approve ‘Burka Ban’ In St. Gallen Region After Two-Thirds Back Veil Crackdown

Part of the assimilation process.

Via The Sun:

A Second region of Switzerland has today voted to ban burkas in public places.

The regional government, which had opposed the measure, now has to implement the result of the vote, which drew turnout of about 36 percent.

It is expected to follow the example of the southern canton of Ticino, where a law was introduced two years ago.

Full-face coverings such as niqabs and burqas are increasingly across being banned in Europe.

It is argued they symbolise discrimination against women and should be outlawed.

Others feel it risks public safety if people cannot be visually identified.

The clothing has already been forbidden in France and Denmark.

But Switzerland’s largest Islamic organisation, the Islamic Central Council, recommended women continue to cover their faces.

It said it would closely monitor the implementation of the ban and consider legal action if necessary.

Pompeo: Trump Dissenters Should ‘Find Something Else To Do’

Such as get a life.

Via NY Post:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said administration officials who feel they cannot back President Trump should find “something else to do.”

“If you can’t be on the team, if you’re not supporting this mission, maybe you’ve got to find something else to do,” Pompeo told “Fox News Sunday” in an interview aired Sunday.

“We need everyone who’s engaged in helping achieve President Trump’s mission,” he said, ticking off a list of federal agencies, including the Justice Department.

Pompeo was reacting to a question about deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who according to a story in the New York Times last week, raised the idea in May 2017 of secretly recording Trump and then trying to invoke the 25th Amendment to have him removed from office.

While Pompeo wouldn’t address Rosenstein directly, Fox anchor Chris Wallace asked if a person who tried to record the president and use the 25th Amendment is on the team.

“Not remotely,” Pompeo said.

The secretary of state said he’s relayed the same message to junior and senior colleagues in the State Department and other federal agencies.

“I’ve been pretty clear since my beginning of service here in this administration,” he said.

Rainbow-Flag Burning Priest Removed From Chicago Parish

That didn’t take long, can’t have a rainbow flag burning priest in the parish for year. Update to this story.

Via Fox News:

A Chicago priest who defied orders and went ahead in burning a rainbow flag – commonly known as the flag for LGBT pride – has been removed from his parish in the city’s Avondale neighborhood.

Cardinal Blase Cupich had cautioned Father Paul Kalchik of the Resurrection Parish not to burn the flag, but he reportedly went ahead with it and recited a prayer of exorcism before fleeing.

The Archdiocese released a letter saying that “Father Kalchik needs to take time away from the parish to receive pastoral support,” amid a swirl of allegations that Cupich had threatened – through his vicars – for Kalchik to be forcibly committed to St. Luke’s Institute for further evaluation and treatment.

New York Times, Other Media Turned Down Second Allegation Story No One Could Confirm It

Again, no evidence that it even happened.

Via Twitchy:

From the NY Times:

In a statement, Judge Kavanaugh denied the allegation from the woman, Deborah Ramirez, and called it “a smear, plain and simple.” The New Yorker did not confirm with other eyewitnesses that Judge Kavanaugh was at the party.

The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.

Grassley Promises Evaluation Of New Claims Against Kavanaugh, Hits Dems For Withholding Info

The dems will keep finding alleged victims with help from the journalist at Rolling Stone.

Via Fox News:

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, late Sunday slammed Senate Democrats for withholding information from the committee regarding new sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Iowa Republican said the committee will attempt to evaluate the new claims, but said in a statement “it appears that they [Democrats] are more interested in a political takedown” than “pursing allegations through a bipartisan and professional investigative process.”

His office released the statement after two new allegations emerged against Kavanaugh.

Deborah Ramirez, 53, a former Yale classmate, said he exposed himself and thrusted his penis in her face during a drunken dormitory party, according to an article in The New Yorker.

Ramirez claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while she was intoxicated during a drinking game in the 1983-84 academic year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman. She also claimed she inadvertently touched Kavanaugh’s penis when she pushed him away and says the incident left her “embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated.”

The report stated that the magazine had not corroborated that Kavanaugh was at the party in question. An anonymous male classmate said he was told that Kavanaugh had exposed himself to Ramirez within the following days.

Ramirez admitted to the magazine that she does not fully remember the alleged incident because she had been drinking at the time. The magazine also reported that Ramirez spent six days “carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” before telling the full version of her story.

Kavanaugh says the event “did not happen” and that the allegation is “a smear, plain and simple.”

A White House spokeswoman adds in a second statement that the allegation is “designed to tear down a good man.”

Grassley’s office said the committee’s majority staff learned about the allegations in the magazine’s article. His statement read that Democratic staff were aware of the allegations, but did not inform Republican staffers.

Yale Law Professor Says Reports That She Groomed Potential Kavanaugh Clerks Are ‘100% False’

Another case of gossip is gospel.

Via Daily Caller:

A top Yale professor is strongly denying allegations that she advised her students seeking judicial clerkships with Judge Brett Kavanaugh that they needed to look a certain way, calling the reports “100% false.”

Amy Chua was alleged to have told her students that it was “not an accident” that Kavanaugh’s female clerks “looked like models,” according to multiple reports by The Guardian, Huffington Post and Above the Law.

The reports seemed to suggest that Kavanaugh, whose nomination to the Supreme Court has been halted by sexual assault allegations from high school, chose his female law clerks based on their physical appearances. (RELATED: Kavanaugh’s Confirmation In Limbo For Foreseeable Future)

“Everything that is being said about the advice I give to students applying to Brett Kavanaugh — or any judge — is outrageous, 100% false, and the exact opposite of everything I have stood for and said for the last fifteen years,” Chua said in a statement she posted Saturday on Twitter.[…]

The reports about Chua’s advice also alleged that her husband and fellow Yale law professor, Jed Rubenfeld, once told a student that Kavanaugh “hires women with a certain look.”

“I always tell students to prep insanely hard – that substance is the most important thing,” Chua’s statement reads. “My record as a clerkship mentor, especially for women and minorities, is among the things I’m most proud of in my life.”

Joe Kennedy’s Tweet On Sexual Assault Insensitivity Is A Bit Much

Joe should have sat this one out and went for a drive in the family Oldsmobile.

Via Boston Herald:

Should any member of the Kennedy family be lecturing any other politician about insensitivity to the rape and abuse of females?

I’m talking to you, Rep. Joe Kennedy III — JoJoJo — my congressman.

On Friday morning, the president tweeted out, re: the Kavanaugh-Ford contretemps: “I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time and place!”

To which JoJoJo responded:

“2 of 3 sexual assaults are never re­ported. Might have something to do with the fact that for every 1,000 rapes, 994 perpetrators walk free. And the fact that men in power make statements like this one.”

Maybe I missed it, but has JoJoJo tweeted out any denunciations of his House colleague, Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, who is also vice chairman of the DNC? Ellison, a Muslim who used to hang out with rabid anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, has been accused by two of his ex-girlfriends of physical abuse, and there are 911 calls from the terrified, bruised women on the record.

Has JoJoJo ever commented on Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware, who has admitted using his ex-wife as a punching bag, giving her a black eye — “it caused some discoloration of her left eye and some puffiness.”

Better put some ice on it, Mrs. Carper. Oh sorry, wrong Democrat pol — that was President Clinton’s medical tip to Juanita Broaddrick after he allegedly raped her. JoJoJo has never tweeted about that Democrat sex crime either.

How about Sen. Sherrod Brown, extinguished Democrat of Ohio. His ex-wife once filed court documents saying that “he struck and bullied me on several occasions.” Lucky for Brown the cops didn’t also charge him with impersonating a Kennedy!

How about New Jersey, where Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker has admitted to groping a woman at age 15? And how old were those working girls Sen. Bob Menendez was accused of partying with down in the Dominican Republic? How about the Democrat sheriff of Bergen County who was recently recorded on tape speculating about the sexual preferences of the state’s new unmarried female lieutenant governor?

More crickets from JoJoJo about all the above stalwarts of the Garden State Democrat party.

But it’s even more disingenuous for JoJoJo to be pitting the blast on anyone else, given his own family’s sordid record of abusing women.

Starting with his own father, a hot-tempered moron named Joseph P. Kennedy II. He put Pam Kelley in a wheelchair for life in 1973 on Nantucket in a Jeep accident. Then he hooked up with JoJoJo’s mother, Sheila Rauch. JoJoJo’s mom later detailed in a book how his father had “bullied” her and how frightened she had been by his misogynistic thuggery and volcanic temper.

Then there’s your cousin William Kennedy Smith. I once saw cousin Willie strolling into St. Edward’s in Palm Beach one Sunday morning with your dad. Willie needed divine intervention, because at the time he was on trial in West Palm for raping a young mother in Palm Beach.

Willie beat that rap after the judge refused to allow the jury to see sworn depositions from four other young women who claimed Cousin Willie had attacked them.
