Sen. Cory Booker made it abundantly clear what kind of “fundamental change” America will undergo if he and like-“thinking” “Progressives” get their paws on the levers of power: one in which not only basic Constitutional due process rights but also bedrock standards of fairness and decency are all flushed down the toilet in the name of political gamesmanship.
In a bizarre rant, Booker denounced Judge Kavanaugh for showing understandable anger at having his reputation and family attacked by shocking, last-minute, unverified allegations and claimed that showed he doesn’t have the “temperament” for the job (even though his judicial temperament has never been criticized during years on the bench.) That would be laughable enough coming from someone who represents a state in the US Senate yet behaves like an unbridled jackass during Supreme Court confirmation hearings, comparing himself to Spartacus for his courage in revealing classified documents that aren’t really classified.
One woman's view: Kavanaugh protesters are setting women back decades
By Laura Ainsworth
A few days ago, I wrote about being mortified --- once again, embarrassed to be female --- at the sight of two hysterical women cornering Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator. He stood there cowed, stricken like a child whose puppy had just been stomped on, as they cried and shouted nonsense like (I’m paraphrasing), “If Kavanaugh is confirmed, it means victims of sexual abuse are not being heard!!”
See, RIGHT THERE, that is an example of the kind of cracked “female logic” that smart women for generations have tried to rise above. I’m (barely) old enough to remember that women of my grandmother’s generation were thought of as fragile, emotional, irrational, and likely in need of medication (“mother’s little helper”) just to get through the day. There’s an old song I've never liked, called “Roses and Lollipops,” about how men should treat their wives, with lines like “One day she’ll smile, next day she’ll cry...minute to minute, you’ll never know why”...and “Fourteen or forty, they’re kids in their hearts.” It was meant in a loving way, I know, but even as a little girl I found it condescending, though lollipops were fine (then).
The ricin story
By Mike Huckabee
More news that wasn’t deemed worthy of breaking through the Kavanaugh chatter: after someone sent a letter with a mysterious white powder to Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign office in Houston (fortunately, it was found to be harmless), two letters suspected of containing the deadly poison ricin appeared at the Pentagon, addressed to the Secretary of Defense and the Chief of Naval Operations. After being quarantined and examined, the envelopes were found to contain not ricin, but the seeds from which ricin is made. They're not poison in that form –- nobody was harmed. Looks like someone was "sending a message" meant to be interpreted as a threat.
This should serve as a wake-up call to anyone who thinks that there are no serious threats out there in the world, so we can safely hand over the government to a crowd of overgrown three-year-olds who yell that things “aren’t fair,” demand free candy and throw tantrums when they don’t get their way.
Now we know: FBI met with DNC/Hillary lawyer about Trump/Russia "collusion"
By Mike Huckabee
You might want at sit down for this.
In the latest installment from investigative reporter John Solomon, we learn that during the 2016 campaign season, then-FBI general counsel James Baker met with at least one attorney for Perkins Coie, the law firm for the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign that paid about a million dollars to Fusion GPS, which hired British ex-spy Christopher Steele to create that nasty, uncorroborated anti-Trump Russian “dossier.”
Congressional investigators have confirmed that they met to discuss allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Why would the FBI be meeting with a lawyer for the DNC and Hillary about THIS? Stunningly, the meeting took place before the FBI got a warrant from the FISA court to spy on Carter Page, an associate of the Trump campaign. In fact, it was the dossier that was used as a pretense to get that warrant.
According to Solomon’s source, this meeting has been confirmed by contemporaneous evidence and also through testimony gathered by a joint investigation by Republicans on both the House Judiciary and Government Oversight committees. Baker was interviewed behind closed doors on Wednesday of last week. And what this tells us is that the FBI had even more reason to suspect that the dossier was completely political in nature, part of the Democrats’ effort to defeat Trump, yet they failed to disclose this to the FISA court. They simply have no excuse for that.
According to a knowledgeable source, “This is a bombshell that unequivocally shows the real collusion was between the FBI and Donald Trump’s opposition --- the DNC, Hillary, and a Trump-hating British intel officer --- to hijack the election, rather than some conspiracy between Putin and Trump.”
House committee members who have been pushing for Trump to declassify all relevant documents think that these will uncover FBI abuses of the FISA court. Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows even says there’s evidence that the FBI had sources secretly record members of the Trump campaign.
At this writing, the story just broke. Stay tuned.
Your Fake News For Thursday:
By Mike Huckabee
The AP issued a correction to a story about a federal regulation change whose headline claimed the Trump EPA says “a little radiation is good for you.” After that raised the usual wave of “OUTRAGE” among various liberal media outlets, the AP was forced to admit that the quote came from a Massachusetts toxicologist, not anyone in the EPA. The actual policy changes don’t even mention radiation, and that headline is contrary to what the EPA told the reporter directly. And yet, it was the headline -- which got it lots of attention as it was repeated by liberal media outlets, many of which haven’t bothered to run the correction.
Never mind radiation, maybe the EPA should be studying the dangers to society from toxic partisanship. It seems to eat away at the brain.
