Potential for a real "bombshell"

This could be a potential real "bombshell" story for a change: Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s former boyfriend of seven years has written a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, contradicting several things she said under oath, and Chairman Grassley is demanding an explanation. The man, who asked that his name not be released (and good luck with that) claims that Ford never mentioned Kavanaugh or being assaulted to him; that she flew with him, including on a prop plane tour of Hawaii, without ever mentioning a fear of flying; that he found her a place to live that was 500 square feet with only one door, and she never mentioned a fear of small spaces or a need to have two doors; and most damaging of all, that he watched her coaching a friend on how to take a polygraph for a government job, despite claiming ignorance of how polygraphs works and denying she’d ever given anyone tips or advice on how to take a polygraph. 

Many wondered why prosecutor Rachel Mitchell asked that last question of her.  Now, there’s speculation that maybe she knew of this letter in advance.  If so, then Republicans who thought she was asking pointless questions might owe her a big apology.

President Trump sparks outrage – “OUTRAGE!,” I say! – by saying a lot of stuff about Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) that’s so patently obvious that I’ve been using one of his observations as a running gag (“but I repeat myself”) for about two years now.

Tuesday's Fake News:  Slate.com misquoted Brett Kavanaugh, then accused him of lying under oath for saying something he didn’t say?  A trustworthy journalism source like Slate.com?! Well, knock me over with a cotton ball!

President Trump's foreign policy 

President Trump’s foreign policy should come with a warning label that it might make some people feel dizzy, faint or confused, and they should not operate heavy machinery after watching CNN (if you watch MSNBC, you probably shouldn’t be trusted to operate heavy machinery at all.)  Case in point: the wild swings in our negotiations with North Korea about dismantling their nuclear program. 

One minute Kim Jong-Un is threatening to nuke Hawaii, the next he’s meeting with Trump and returning our soldiers’ remains after decades of refusals.  He destroys a missile test site, then we hear that he’s ramping up his program.  Kim sends Trump letters that Trump says are so beautiful, they made him “fall in love” with Kim; but we’re not easing up on sanctions, even though (in the past week alone), China and Russia urged us to, and North Korea’s foreign minister gave a speech defiantly declaring, "The perception that sanctions can bring us on our knees is a pipe dream of the people who are ignorant of us” and “under such circumstances, there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first” – while almost simultaneously, South Korea’s President delivered a message to Trump from Kim that he is “determined” to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

Feeling dizzy yet?  Then try this: Monday, amid all these threats and reversals, the two Koreas began removing land mines from the Demilitarized Zone for the first time since 1953. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/art-deal-2-koreas-begin-removing-mines-dmz/

If you feel as if you need to lie down (or if you’re a member of the anti-Trump media, and feel your head is in danger of exploding like a faulty 1953 North Korean land mine), then just take two aspirin, turn off the TV and think about this:

No matter what Trump says, as long as those sanctions are in place – and they are – it’s all just a dance.  Kim thinks he can keep his partner off-balance because it’s been so easy with all the other pompous diplomats with overly-inflated opinions of their skills (cough, cough, Kerry) that we’ve sent to deal with him for years.  Sooner or later, he’s going to realize that no matter how he tries to dip and twist, Trump will outdance him while the sanctions stand guard as firmly as a sharp-eyed chaperone.  I bet at the end, it will be Kim who is exhausted and begging for the dance to end.  In the meantime, either enjoy the show or sit it out. 

The unlikely worst-case scenario is that it ends with Kim still trying to build nukes and missiles, which is exactly what he was doing for years when all the critics who are attacking Trump’s negotiating style were in change of negotiating with him themselves.  Say, maybe they should sit this one out, too.

Feinstein says keep secret?!?

It’s being reported that the FBI has already wrapped up its investigation of the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh (apparently, it doesn’t take that long to analyze zero evidence) and could present it as soon as today. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly decided it should be seen by Senators only.  And for some reason, after the Democrats howled and squealed, demanding an FBI investigation, Sen. Diane Feinstein also suddenly thinks the results should be kept secret from the public.  But I know how to spread it far and wide: entrust it to Diane Feinstein.

 NYT explains

Remember that moronic New York Times expose about how Brett Kavanaugh might or might not have tossed some ice at a guy in a bar when he was in college? (If it was ice from a margarita glass with a salted rim, they could claim the guy was “a-salted.”)  Turns out they could find no police records or other evidence confirming that Kavanaugh did it, but something shady did turn up: it seems that the co-writer of the story is a virulently anti-Trump op-ed writer who is already on record as opposing Kavanaugh. The Times was forced to concede that their ludicrous “news” story should have been written by a news reporter, but still insisted that it was straightforward, fact-based, and they stand behind it. 



Sure.  And here’s the “fact-based” response of that writer to the news that the police report said nothing about Kavanugh throwing ice:  “No report of an arrest. Could have been expunged, I’m told.” 

Does that mean it actually was expunged, or you’re just spitballing that maybe it was expunged, so the total lack of evidence "could be" proof that it must’ve happened?  She should quit her job at the Times and run for Senate as a Democrat.

If you are tired of winning...

President Trump said something that inspired the perfect campaign slogan for Democrats in the upcoming election:  “Are you tired of winning?  Then vote Democrat!”

LAURA AINSWORTH:  One woman's view: Kavanaugh protesters are setting women back decades


ACLU denies reports

The ACLU denied reports that it was betraying its mission by no longer defending unpopular speech.  That’s good, because I can’t imagine that their outrageous new commercial shredding their reputation for defending the rights of the accused is going to be popular.

    You gotta know the FBI investigation turned up nothing about the Judge or feinstein and co-conspirators would be faunching at the bit to have the report released. They HAD to know the outcome since they seem to have been behind the whole farce. Maybe they thought they had the FBI in their pockets and they would release false information? Or, perhaps the investigation showed up the actions of certain Democrats and the activist lawyers--can't have the American citizens know that, you know!!! I think the only people who stand behind the Democrats are those who only listen to msm.

    Donald L. Huntsman--sounds kind of the way the msm "reported" Tea Party rally attendances. Again saying it was all white people when there were people of other races and nationality who in fact did show up. Either the msm made sure none of them got into the pictures, or perhaps they were fake pictures.

    YES! How many have to vote now for this wonderful JUDGE Kavanaugh. Now to see how will Collins, Flake and others vote? This has been the biggest scam ever even beats the Anita Hill on how far the other side will go. I have said to you already Gov I have couple of really liberal friends and they so hate Pres Trump and I believe they would say and do most anything just like maybe this Professor is not doing? I can hardly wait now for the Mueller report and how Pres Trump was never colluding with any RUSSIAN. But boy was Hillary and her husband. Where is the whole FISA report why are we still waiting? Something stinks in the Apple Barrel Gov. Now we get tossed out the whole TAX smear campaign that has been out there so this week we are past caring about Dr Ford now and lets find a way to attack and impeach Pres Trump. This is so scary and if the JD does not get off their duff going to be worse? See the vote and if not all the way for this wonderful man on the Supreme Court, I am no longer voting. Take care , Gov.

    Governor Huckabee, Thanks for all the wonderful articles today. I'm writing because of the latest tactic of the Dems and near Dems (Sen. Flake) that say how bad the comments of the President were last night.

    Since when is it permissible to enjoy and accept the lampooning of Judge Kavanaugh and Senator Graham on National Television (SNL) but not permissible to lampoon Dr. Ford during a Republican rally. Or is it only because who did the lampooning that makes the latter so very wrong. The President, in his lampooning of Dr. Ford only stated facts in a funny way while those on SNL not only lampooned the judge and the Senator but took the opportunity to tear down the two of them. The media, Democrats and those Republicans that lean that way are so hypercritical.

    Again, thanks for your letters and links to a different point from what we are bombarded daily by the left and the media.

    The press has been lying for a long time. In 1964 I attended a rally for Goldwater at the Western Livestock center arena. I was late, the parking lot was full, the arena was full. The area outside the stadium where they sold refreshments was full. We had to stand between corrals and only heard Senator Goldwater on the speakers. There were Latinos and blacks. When i got home two television news cast said "Goldwater spoke in Los Angeles. It was sparsely attended mostly by wasps (white Anglo Saxon protestants). I have watched the press lie ever since!
