Kaepernick To Get Medal From Harvard For His Social Justice Work

He’s getting a medal for indoctrinating kids.

Via Daily Caller:

Harvard University announced Thursday that activist and former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick will receive the university’s highest honor in African and African-American studies for his social justice work.

Kaepernick, 30, is one of eight recipients of the W. E. B. Du Bois Medal, according to The Harvard Gazette Thursday.

“In the year of the 150th anniversary of his birth, W. E. B. Du Bois would be proud of the eight individuals being recognized at this year’s Hutchins Center Honors,” Henry Louise Gates Jr., Director of the Hutchins Center, said in a statement given to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Emerging from a variety of backgrounds and professions, each represents the quest for knowledge, freedom of expression, and pursuit of truth that are foundational to black history and culture, and that were foundational to Du Bois as a thinker and activist.”

Kaepernick is known for taking a knee during the national anthem at NFL games to protest police brutality against black individuals. He has not played in the NFL since 2017, when he got out of his contract with the 49ers, SportsMax reported Friday.

Juanita Broaddrick Offers To Testify If Kavanaugh Accuser Doesn’t

Gotta love Juanita Broaddrick. Talk about she persisted…

Via Daily Caller:

Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978 while he was running for governor of Arkansas, says she will testify before the U.S. Senate if Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser will not.

“Just a thought……If Christine Ford declines to be interviewed Monday…. I’m available to answer questions about my Rape by Bill Clinton,” Broaddrick tweeted this week in the midst of the sexual misconduct allegations which have plagued the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford’s New Reason She Might Have Still More Delay In Testifying

Vote. And I hope Collins and Murkowski have been observing and understanding all these machinations and that solidifies them voting for Kavanaugh.

Via Twitchy:

Why might Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford and the Democrats ask for a further delay in any hearings? Don’t be drinking anything when you read the latest reason:

#Spittake

From Politico:

GOP members of the Judiciary Committee held a conference call on Friday morning to discuss how to respond to the requests from Ford’s lawyers. But several elements of their offer appear to be nonstarters with Democrats and Ford’s camp, which had made clear that she could not be in the capital to testify before Thursday, according to a senior aide to the minority.

In July, Ford Advisor Teased ‘Strategy Will Emerge — Might Ultimately Defeat The Nominee’

At ~3:20:

Seidman, who advised both the Clintons and Anita Hill, is now advising Ford.

Via American Mirror:

Back in July, the American Constitution Society held a conference call about the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and a clip of it was released by the GOP on Thursday.

In the call, Democratic operative Ricki Seidman cautioned participants to stay tuned, despite the partisan makeup of the Senate seemingly being against them.

“While I think at the outset, looking at the numbers in the Senate, it’s not extremely likely that the nominee can be defeated. I would absolutely withhold judgement as the process goes on. I think that I would not reach any conclusion about the outcome in advance,” Seidman says in the recording.

Was she teasing a post-hearing surprise that was triggered by Sen. Dianne Feinstein?

Seidman speculated that Kavanaugh was chosen prior to Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement, and that liberal groups — who would oppose any Trump nominee — were caught flat-footed.

‘Will We Listen To A Woman?’ Booker Asks As Senate Considers Delay On Kavanaugh

What would Spartacus do?

Via NJ Com:

The woman who accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault should be given more time to prepare for a Senate hearing, U.S. Sen. Cory Booker said.

Booker, a member of the panel considering Kavanaugh’s nomination, said Christine Blasey Ford should not be forced to testify on Monday and there should be an independent investigation of her charges beforehand.

“Will we listen to a woman who is making a credible accusation?” Booker, D-N.J., told reporters after he delivered a rollicking address at the state Democratic Committee’s convention in Atlantic City. “We should be honoring a process that gives her time to prepare.” […]

“The way she’s being treated, to me, is unbecoming of her dignity and the goodness of the United States Senate,” Booker said. “She’s been experiencing death threats, she’s had to move out of her home and now we want to bully her into a Monday hearing? Let’s all take a deep breath, give her a few more days and let’s all hear the truth.”

Chuck Grassley’s Office: Ford’s Demands In Exchange For Testimony Are ‘Non-Starters,’ Counteroffer

Good, hold her to it, or the goalposts will keep shifting.

Via Daily Wire:

After a week of back and forth will-she-won’t-she political games, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a high school pool party is now saying she will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, but only under certain conditions.

The “asks” by her attorney include:

That Kavanaugh not be present during her testimony (he has a constitutional right to do so).
That Kavanaugh give his testimony first (no court of law allows that).
That no outside counsel can question her (allowing senators to grandstand).
That the hearing take place next Thursday, not Monday (delaying the vote closer to October).

Stormy Daniels Claims Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ‘Terrified’ Her By Demanding ‘Goodnight Kiss’ After Trump Introduced Them

She does porn and dances at strip clubs and he ‘terrified’ her with a goodnight kiss request? Woman is a whackjob.

Via Daily Mail:

Stormy Daniels has claimed she was ‘terrified’ by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s clumsy demands for a goodnight kiss.

Daniels met Roethlisberger in July 2006 at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe the night after she claims she had sex with Donald Trump, she wrote in her upcoming book obtained by CNN.

The porn star, whose real name is Stephanie Cliffords, says that Trump introduced her to Roethlisberger, who was fresh off of a win in Super Bowl XL.

Roethlisberger and Trump were chatting in the VIP section of a club at the resort hotel, and Daniels says that Trump had to leave and asked the quarterback to walk her back to her hotel room.

NY Times: Rosenstein Reportedly Discussed Wearing ‘Wire,’ Invoking 25th Amendment Against Trump

Coming from the NY Times and anonymous sources, so I wouldn’t assume this was valid.

Via Fox News:

The Trump administration was rocked Friday afternoon by a bombshell report saying Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year suggested secretly recording President Trump to expose chaos in the White House and enlisting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

Rosenstein adamantly denied the accusations.

“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” he said in a statement to Fox News. “I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda. But let me clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”

But the article is sure to roil a White House already suspicious of some elements within the DOJ and FBI, as Trump complains regularly about the Russia probe he calls a “witch hunt.” Rosenstein oversees that probe.

What We Know About FIT Student Charged With Attempting To Steal Plane From Melbourne Airport

Motive unknown.

Via Florida Today:

Early Thursday morning, a 22-year-old student pilot jumped the fence at the Orlando Melbourne International Airport and attempted to steal a vacant commercial airliner, police said, before being wrestled to the ground and arrested.

His name: Nishal Sankat, a Florida Institute of Technology senior from the twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago. He has dual citizenship of Canada and Trinidad and Tobago, Melbourne Police Chief David Gillespie said. He left the United States after that visa expired, but returned on his Canadian passport, he said. He has a Florida driver’s license.

Sankat has been attending FIT since 2014 and recently petitioned to graduate in 2019, according to university officials. He’s been studying aviation management on a part-time basis and has taken part in some flight training in the past.

ccording to the Federal Aviation Administration, Sankat received his commercial pilot’s certification in January and was qualified to fly multi-engine aircraft and was instrument rated.

Sankat’s charges include violating the terms of his visa, according to police. He had no previous arrest record. He did receive two traffic citations, one for speeding in Sept. 2017 and the other, for improper taillights, in August.

Anti-Trump Georgetown Professor Goes On Profane Tirade Against Kavanaugh, GOP

Another juvenile temper tantrum.

Via Fox News:

An anti-Trump professor at Georgetown University went on a profanity-laced Twitter rant against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of committing a sexual assault as a teen.

Dr. Carol Christine Fair is an associate professor in the Security Studies Program at Georgetown, according to the school’s website.

Fair referred to “Kreepy Kavanaugh” as a “perjurer” and a “rapist” on her verified Twitter account, adding that “nothing has changed since Anita Hill.”

Fair also said the “GOP doesn’t care about women. We knew this. F— them.”

In another tweet about Kavanaugh, Fair referred to the GOP as “pro-rape, pro-pederasty, pro-perjury, pro-corruption, pro-Russian hacking, pro-child trafficking, pro-white male supremacy, pro-VERY-late-term abortion of children with AR-15’s … a f—ing death cult” and “filthy swine.”

Fair told Fox News late Thursday that the tweets came from her personal account. “I do not follow my students’ social media feeds and I do not ask them their opinions about contemporary politics in class.”

She added: “I devote a considerable amount of time helping my students get jobs even when they explain to me that their political leanings differ from my own. I maintain a healthy set of contacts of all political persuasions on LinkedIn for the exclusive use of my students. I do not ask my students about their politics before helping them with their job search.”

Describing her teaching methods, she said: “My exams are empirical and fact-based. There are appeals processes should a student feel aggrieved in my assessments. I have been teaching since 2009 and I have never been accused of being unfair to students nor has any student challenged a grade.”

“Professor Christine Fair should remember that she has Republican students in her classes,” Amelia Irvine, a Georgetown student who is co-president of Network of Enlightened Women and president of Love Saxa, told Campus Reform. “Is she accusing them of hating women as well? I think Fair would be hard pressed to call herself unbiased in the classroom when she’s spewing hate like an immature teenager online.”

“F— Trump and f— you for voting for him,” Fair wrote on Tumblr. “What AMAZES me about Trumpanzees … apart from the fact that they are a bunch of Xphobic, women-hating, white supremacist, whiney-ass snowflakes who love a criminal traitor …”

On Tumblr, Fair has also dubbed MAGA hats “socially-acceptable Klan hoods that say ‘I heart White-Male-Christian Supremacy.’”

Democrat Women In Congress Launch Campaign To Recruit More Female Candidates

Identity politics, vote for the vagina candidate.

Via Roll Call:

A group of female Democratic lawmakers launched an effort Thursday to recruit pro-choice women to run for office, a campaign they tied to efforts to peg 2018 as the second “Year of the Woman.”

Elect Democratic Women will be chaired by Florida Democratic Rep. Lois Frankel and raise money for female candidates within the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committees “Red to Blue” program, which seeks to identify and funnel support to candidates with a strong shot of unseating Republican incumbents.

“Diversity is a cornerstone of our democracy and right now, only 20 percent of Congress is female,” Frankel said. “We need our elected officials to better reflect our country and we can do that by electing more women who will bring different perspectives and experiences, thus making better decisions for American families.”

Other congresswomen behind the project include Reps. Joyce Beatty of Ohio, Julia Brownley and Lucille Roybal-Allard of California, Cheri Bustos of Illinois, Katherine Clark of Massachusetts, and Ann McLane Kuster of New Hampshire.

The announcement is the latest sign both parties are seeking to capitalize on a surge in interest from female candidates sparked by the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, the #metoo movement and most recently, the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Those factors have resulted in speculation that the 2018 midterms could see more new female congress members than any year since 1992, when record numbers of women were inspired to run by the way Anita Hill was treated when she accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

North Korea’s Kim Wants Another Trump Summit To Speed Denuclearization: South Korea’s Moon

OMG! Trump is putting us on the brink of WWIII.

SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korea’s Kim Jong Un wants a second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump soon to hasten denuclearization, but a key goal is declaring an end this year to the 1950-53 Korean War, the South’s President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday.

Moon said he and Kim spent most of a three-day summit discussing how to break an impasse and restart nuclear talks between Pyongyang and Washington, which are at odds over which should come first, denuclearization or ending the war.

Kim, who recently proposed another summit with Trump after their unprecedented June talks in Singapore, said the North was willing to “permanently dismantle” key missile facilities in the presence of outside experts, and the Yongbyon main nuclear complex, if the United States took corresponding action.

The joint statement from the summit stipulates his commitment to a “verifiable, irreversible dismantlement” of the nuclear programs, and ending the war would be a first U.S. reciprocal step, Moon said.

“Chairman Kim expressed his wish that he wanted to complete denuclearization quickly and focus on economic development,” Moon told a news conference in Seoul, shortly after returning from the summit with Kim in Pyongyang.

“He hoped a second summit with Trump would take place in the near future, in order to move the denuclearization process along quickly.”

12-Year-Old Tennessee Boy Shoots, Kills Mom’s Husband During Fight

Last rodeo for the husband.

DEER LODGE, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities in eastern Tennessee say a 12-year-old boy shot and killed his mother’s husband during a domestic dispute.

News outlets report 56-year-old Kevron Thomas “Tommy” Durham was shot twice with a rifle Saturday night. A release from District Attorney General Russell Johnson says authorities had received at least five previous calls from the home for domestic violence, although none resulted in criminal charges.

It’s unclear whether Durham was the boy’s father or stepfather.

Johnson says authorities believe the child was coming to the defense of his mother, a repeated victim of domestic violence. He says authorities are determining what they “can do through juvenile court with the suspect.” He says juvenile court can provide counseling and services, but that if he were an adult, he wouldn’t be charged for defending a third party.

Attorney Says ‘Stay Tuned’ For News About Kaepernick Getting Signed, Hints About Which Two Teams Are Interested

Patriots? Really?

Via Daily Wire:

Is quarterback-turned-social justice activist and newly minted face of Nike Colin Kaepernick about to be back in the league he’s suing for “collusion” against him? That’s what his attorney, Mark Geragos, is teasing to the media — and he’s even dropping hints about which teams are supposedly interested.

Asked by TMZ Sports on Thursday if Kaepernick would ever get back into the league, Geragos said, “I would just say, ‘Stay tuned,’ that next week there may be some news” (video below).

“News like he might be signing?” asked the reporter.

“That’s as far as I’m gonna go,” said Geragos, who noted earlier that he was “pilloried” for predicting last year that his client was “going to get a contract in ten days.” Asked what gives him the confidence about his client’s imminent return, he said, “Have you ever heard of attorney-client privilege?”

Democrats: Even If Kavanaugh Is Confirmed, If We Get Back Power, We’ll Go After Him

She hasn’t even made an official claim yet in writing, Feinstein has refused to turn over the original letter. The reason why is because an official letter to the Committee has legal consequences if she is lying. But even if he’s confirmed, they’re still going to try to take him out, one more reason people can’t let them back into power.

Via Politico:

Congressional Democrats are threatening to investigate sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh from the highest bench in the land should he be confirmed without a probe and the party reclaim Congress.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said that “as soon as Democrats get gavels,” the party will vet the FBI’s handling of Ford’s claim against the Supreme Court nominee — even if Kavanaugh is already seated on the high court by that time. Rep. Eric Swallwell (D-Calif.), who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, also said in an interview that the party could probe Kavanaugh’s denials of the allegations against him.

“If they ramrod this nomination through, and we win the majority, we can still investigate this on the House side, and certainly the question as to whether a Supreme Court justice committed perjury is something you could look at,” Swalwell said in an interview. “Hopefully it doesn’t come to that; hopefully they do this right.”

“Because,” he added, “it’s going to get investigated either way and it would be better not to have to investigate a sitting judge.”

Their comments point to a continued Democratic focus on Kavanaugh that could help turn out liberal voters in November, regardless of whether the GOP can confirm him.

“You can’t ignore a crime victim’s claim that something happened, refuse to investigate, throw her up into the stand without the least bit of support for her, without the least bit of effort to corroborate what she says and then walk away from that,” Whitehouse told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Kavanaugh’s Accuser Is Doing Everything She Can To Avoid Testifying, Check Out Her ‘Demands’

A witness doesn’t get to dictate to the Committee. They should not cave.

Via Daily Wire:

First, the Democrats claimed that Republicans didn’t want to hear from the accuser of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Then when Republicans said they’d love to hear from her, and would she please show up and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats suggested that such a request was sexist and cruel — that no hearing could be held without an FBI investigation. Now, in an attempt to look forthcoming without actually coming forth with any credible information, the accuser’s lawyers are playing games with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

On Thursday night, lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford outlined a series of demands from the Senate Judiciary Committee in order for Ford to testify under oath. Let it first be said that Kavanaugh has denied all charges and will testify on Monday under oath; if he’s found to be lying, he’ll go to jail for perjury. So this is no game to Kavanaugh.

Women’s March, Left Wing Groups Likely Violated IRS Rules With Their Kavanaugh Protests, Non-Profit Status Could Be In Jeopardy

Go get ’em.

Via Daily Caller:

Left-wing nonprofit groups that orchestrated disruptions during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings likely violated IRS rules, which can result in their loss of tax-exempt status, according to an investigation by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

TheDCNF listened in on a conference call Monday where organizers for three groups behind the protests called on activists to continue their “civil disobedience” as part of their efforts to “shut down” Monday’s upcoming confirmation proceedings.

These activist organizations — which include Women’s March, the Center for Popular Democracy and Housing Works — provided cash for the post-and-forfeits to protesters who didn’t show up with their own money before they faced arrest for their conduct, CPD Action national field organizer Darius Gordon and Housing Works national advocacy coordinator Paul Davis both said on Monday’s call.

Post-and-forfeit payments are small cash sums paid to resolve low-level misdemeanor crimes and avoid jail time.

Rite Aid Shooter Snochia Moseley Identified As Transgender

Was she taking medication?

Via Baltimore Sun:

Authorities in Harford County were still trying to determine late Thursday why Snochia Moseley opened fire at the Rite Aid warehouse where she had taken a temporary job, killing three employees and fatally wounding herself.

Authorities have not identified the victims.

Troi Coley, a friend of Moseley’s since high school who had stayed in frequent contact with her in Facebook Messenger, said Moseley sometimes felt as if the world was against her but was not an angry person in spite of her alienation.

Coley said she was shocked to learn that Moseley had been named as the person who carried out the shooting.

“She wasn’t a monster, wasn’t an angry person,” Coley said. “I just believe this was emotional distress. If she did this, it was her last straw.”

Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said Moseley, 26, was a temporary employee at the warehouse and had reported for work as normal Thursday.

Authorities and court records identified Moseley as female, as did a Facebook profile in her name. But in Facebook messages Coley shared with The Baltimore Sun, Moseley described herself as transgender, although it was not clear whether Moseley preferred to be addressed using masculine or feminine pronouns.
