Trump Gets to the Heart of Why Dems Continue to Target Kavanaugh, Urges the SCOTUS Justice to Sue for Libel

The coordinated mainstream media/Democratic party smear attempts at getting then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh disqualified from consideration for the Supreme Court failed in a big way last year. But even though the left lost that battle, they made clear that the fight against a potential vote against Roe v. Wade was not over.

Back in May, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) – who was a presidential candidate at the time, made clear that “action” should be taken against Justices Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch in the event they voted to overturn the 1973 abortion ruling. Here’s what she said at the time:

“That is the law of the land, and I think both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh lied to the Judiciary Committee when they said they would uphold precedent. And if they then go back on this — this statement they made during their confirmation hearings — I think we should look towards what we will do to address it, because we need far more oversight and accountability over these Supreme Court Justices, and if they lied in their hearings, then we should take action.”

In a nutshell, Gillibrand was advocating the impeachment of either or both of the Justices if they struck down the left’s most precious of all SCOTUS rulings. It was a clear attempt at intimidating the Justices to vote a certain way or else. That idea is not off the table just because she’s dropped out of the presidential race.

Around the same time Gillibrand was making this argument in May, other presidential candidates who are still in the race as of this writing like Sens. Elizabeth Warren (MA), Kamala Haris (CA), former El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg advocated for expanding the Supreme Court as a way of nullifying the votes of Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.

The messages these former and current Democratic presidential candidates were sending to Kavanaugh and Gorsuch was clear: You better not rock the boat at the Supreme Court on our signature issues, or you’ll be sorry.

The left’s/media’s latest attempt at a smear came courtesy of the New York Times over the weekend in a clear hit piece designed to make an old, discredited sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh become new and relevant again. In response to the story, the Usual Democratic Suspects lined up to call for an investigation and his impeachment.

Unfortunately for them, the New York Times had to issue an embarrassing correction to the story – namely that Deborah Ramirez, the woman who was allegedly assaulted by Kavanaugh – reportedly does not recall the alleged incident.

President Trump responded to the Times’ reporting on Sunday by suggesting Kavanaugh start suing for libel:

While it’s highly unlikely for a variety of reasons that Kavanaugh will take such advice, the bigger point Trump was getting at in his tweets is that Democrats in Washington, DC and those who work for national news outlets under the guise of objectivity are using bogus stories like this one in order to try to influence Kavanaugh into voting their way on future high profile cases in hopes that they’ll finally leave him alone.

Democrats and the mainstream media alike know that their loudly-voiced hypocritical complaints about the politicization of the Supreme Court have likely influenced Chief Justice John Roberts to vote with the court’s liberal Justices, so why not try it on Kavanaugh, too?

New York Times Corrects its Kavanaugh Hit Piece and Exposes the Orchestrated Hit By the Democrats and Media

 

Westlake Legal Group d2bf8fb0-122d-4440-9765-867da6293429.v1-620x421 New York Times Corrects its Kavanaugh Hit Piece and Exposes the Orchestrated Hit By the Democrats and Media Supreme Court sexual harassment SCOTUS News New York Times media collusion Media Mainstream Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post fake news donald trump democrats Brett Kavanaugh Allow Media Exception

Ironically, as the press ignores a lack of proof, there is ample evidence of Dem/Media collusion today

Sunday the news nets and social media were all aflame with the “news” of breaking Brett Kavanaugh information. The New York Times released excerpts from an upcoming book written by its reporters on the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation affair, and it was a napalm blast that ignited a firestorm of conjecture. It was also completely unfounded, but unfounded speculation has never stopped the media before, and this latest is just an example of ongoing media malpractice.

The new revelation was that a former classmate of Kavanaugh at Yale recalled seeing a rather graphic episode involving forcing the genitalia of Kavanaugh on an unsuspecting and unwilling female victim. There were a number of issues with this revelation, beginning with the fact that it took decades to arrive. Additionally this charge was not lodged by the woman in question, but by a man who claims to have seen the incident, Max Stier. That Stier worked as a lawyer in the Bill Clinton impeachment process is a side note; that he has never said anything about this incident in the past few decades is notable.

The first sign of trouble for the New York Times was pulling down its tweet Saturday night about the penis-thrusting incident.

This of course did little to stem the wave of outrage from our thought leaders. The amazing thing to watch was how many in the press were insisting this was a new revelation, and it somehow cast ALL of the prior speculation into a new light, when instead it was a charge against Kavanaugh that was as baseless as any of the others that have been tossed aside due to lack of evidence. Somehow a claim from a Clinton operative, not the victim, that was never previously reported is now being held as “proof” by journalists. Those are some loosely held ethics.

Then, as the press was in loud concert in declaring “credible” new evidence has been revealed, the Times relied on its now-common practice — the Quiet Correction. All of a sudden, in the middle of all of the tumult, a small detail was revealed by The Paper of Record regarding this new and blazingly significant revelation in its upcoming book: the supposed victim of the Kavanaugh sex crime has no recollection of this event.

Consider the significance of what has taken place now. This means we have the New York Times promoting items from its own book as revelatory and potentially scandalous, that have been completely disproven — by items inside of the very same book. The Times knew this was the case, and yet it pumped out the allegation, allowed the mainstream media to bleat and screech over this, and then subtly corrects itself with a “by the way”-level correction that it had been in possession of the entire time.

And many in the press have gone on screaming about cover-up of the Kavanaugh details, and how the administration has forced through a “guilty” Supreme Court nominee. To further illustrate the coordination look through this list of Democrat politicians and media players who have all come out with a tellingly similar read on the hearing and investigation into the Kavanaugh charges.

Note how many have jumped on board with calling the FBI investigation into the accusers here was all a “Sham”: Sen. Mazie HironoSen. Amy KlobucharHarry Reid’s COS Adam JentlesonRobert Reich — as well as a number of journalists and reporters, and even an actress. All echo the same “sham” messaging.

There is something even more revealing. Note that all of these vaunted names who are energetically lambasting the Federal Bureau of Investigations are in fact violating one of their own previous coordinated outrages. Recall that it was not too long ago the thought of President Trump being critical of the FBI was an affront to our very democracy?

Ah, those shifting moral standards on the left. Who would dare think that their current outrage would be in direct opposition to their past outrages?! Well…anyone who is paying attention.

Beto O’Rourke Lashes Out After Mayor Pete Adds His Name to Chorus of Dems Criticizing His Gun Grabbing Plan

Beto O’Rourke has been on a mission since the El Paso mass shooting to convince the American people that his gun confiscation plan is the only way to stop mass shootings.

He amplified his position during last week’s Democratic debate when he said “Hell yes” in response to ABC News debate moderator David Muir’s question about whether or not he was going to take away people’s guns:

MUIR: Some of the stage have suggested a voluntary buy-back for guns in this country. You have gone further. You said, quote, “Americans who own AR-15s and AK-47s will have to sell them to the government, all of them. You know that critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?

BETO O’ROURKE: I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high impact, high velocity, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that so you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers. When we see that being used against children and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa, there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against a fellow American anymore.

Since the debate, a growing number of Democrats have criticized O’Rourke’s remarks, suggesting that 1) it’s not doable and 2) they will hurt Democrats for years to come.

Sen. Chris Coons (DE) is one of several Democrats speaking out against O’Rourke’s debate comments. South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, also a presidential candidate, is another:

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and agreed with Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., saying the clip of the former O’Rourke’s statement about AR-15s and AK-47s “will be played for years at Second Amendment rallies with organizations that try to scare people by saying Democrats are coming for your guns.”

Buttigieg said, “Look, right now we have an amazing moment on our hands. We have agreement among the American people not just for universal backgrounds checks, but we have a majority in favor of red-flag laws, high-capacity magazines, banning the new sale of assault weapons. This is a golden moment to finally do something.”

Buttigieg went on to say, “When even this president and even [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell are at least are pretending to be open to reforms, we know that we have a moment on our hand. Let’s make the most of it and get these things done.”

Watch:

Here’s how O’Rourke responded:

The general consensus I get from moderate liberal commentators and even the Democrats who have criticized Beto’s plan and remarks is that what happened in his hometown of El Paso last month is motivating him to take action and be bold, and that his plan and remarks come from a place of emotion and frustration.

That’s precisely why he belongs nowhere near the White House. Because no matter how passionate, emotional, and personal an issue may be to a candidate, an unconstitutional plan is still unconstitutional.

The RedState Box Office Report – A Hustle to Challenge the Clown

Arrivals from Toronto deliver mixed results

It was all but concluded that this weekend would see a repeat champion at the top, but an upstart release with some strong word-on-the-street was threatening things. It is a sign we may have crawled from the post-summer doldrums like emerging from a sewer.

So in the ramping up of the Halloween frame and moving towards the holiday season here are this weekend’s performance figures.

IT: CHAPTER TWO – $40.7 Million
No shock at all that a repeat was to be had with the monster hit from last week. The second balloon ride was actually slightly better than expected. Horror films are notorious for being first-weekend performers and having a quick drop off, even more so if it has a stronger opening. There was a sign of strength here as this weekend is around a -55% dip, much better than the predicted -60,65% drop. Saturday was a stronger than anticipated return, propping up an already powerful performance. This follows close to the original, that also had a stronger second week than predicted. To date this sequel has drawn $150 million already.

HUSTLERS – $32.1m
A highly raved-about film that debuted at the Toronto Film Festival has been getting all kinds of attention. Jennifer Lopez is getting rave reviews as she heads a cast of actresses who have impressed in this tale of strippers who conduct a heist on their rich clientele. The predictions on this title have been constantly scaled upwards and some speculated it had the chance to dethrone the money-making Pennywise. This opening is the best ever seen by Jennifer Lopez, and the best for the studio, STX Entertainment.

ANGEL HAS FALLEN – $4.2m
A slight recovery, after the monstrous opening of IT last weekend, sees Gerard Butler dipping only -29% this week. Soon this second sequel will have earned more than LONDON HAS FALLEN.

GOOD BOYS – $4.1m
Universal continues to see good returns, as this has now climbed over the $70 million mark.

THE LION KING – $3.6m
The clear king of the summer is still a fixture as we enter into Fall.

HOBBS & SHAW – $2.77m
Globally the boys who despise physics have taken in $760 million.

OVERCOMER – $2.7m
The little faith-based-movie-that-could has been chugging along, now earning $30 million in its run.

THE GOLDFINCH – $2.6m
Here is proof that not every awards-hopeful movie to come out of the Toronto Film Festival is gold. This one got beat up a little bit at TIFF and it flamed out. A $50 million co-production between Warner Brothers and Amazon Studios it has Nicole Kidman heading an all-star cast in an adaptation of a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Not only is this a dismal debut on that budget but it was a wide-release disaster. This stands as a top-10 worst opening for a film that debuted in at least 2,500 screens.

THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON – $1.9m
On the other side of the arthouse spectrum is this film with Shia Labeouf. Given a low and gradual rollout and adding screens with each successful week it has tacked on just under another 200 screens this weekend to take its run now to almost 1,500. Along the way it has gently built up a respectable $15 million haul for this small picture.

DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD – $1.85m
Lost might be the key word in that title. It will be interesting to see how much gold Paramount may end up losing on this venture.

Desperate Presidential Candidate Julian Castro Fundraises off His Cheap Shot Memory Attack on Joe Biden

Julian Castro proved one thing beyond a shadow of a doubt at Thursday night’s Democratic debate.

He’s as classless and nasty as his twin brother Joaquin, who is a member of Congress.

You’ll remember last month that Julian endorsed his brother’s despicable campaign to intimidate Trump donors in his Congressional district into silence by way of doxxing those who had contributed the maximum amount to the President’s reelection campaign.

As if that wasn’t sleazy enough, last night during the debate Castro delivered a low blow to Joe Biden that had pretty much everyone coming down against him. For those who didn’t watch the debate, here’s what happened:

At issue is Biden’s plan to allow for a so-called “public option” for Obamacare that would allow people to have government-run health insurance or keep their private insurance plans. He said anyone could qualify and “buy in,” and that “anyone who can’t afford it gets automatically enrolled in the Medicare-type option,” meaning they wouldn’t have to pay.

But Castro, pointing to his poor grandmother’s struggles with diabetes, criticized Biden’s plan for leaving 10 million uninsured people and said former President Obama “wanted every single person in this country covered. My plan would do that. Your plan would not.”

Biden bristled: “They do not have to buy in. They do not have to buy in.”

That’s when Castro sprung.

“You just said that two minutes ago. You just two minutes ago they would have to buy in,” Castro said.

Biden started to say that “poor people anyone like your grandmother who has no money,” but Castro was busy zeroing in on his memory as jeers and cheers erupted from the crowd.

“Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago? Are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago?” Castro said. “I can’t believe that you said two minutes ago that they had to buy in and now you’re saying they don’t have to buy in. You’re forgetting that.”

Watch:

As it turns out, a review of the tape showed Castro was the one who forgot what Biden said “two minutes ago”:

Castro’s vicious attack against Biden based on his age reminds me of other Democrats who question President Trump’s mental health. There’s just no call for it.

I know conservatives and Republicans alike have joked about Biden’s numerous gaffes over the years, but over the summer so many of them happened in a row that I stopped chuckling and started wondering if there was something else going on, something more serious and troubling concerning Biden’s health and age.

Also, while it’s true that Castro’s attack on Biden is a blue on blue thing, and as a Republican I should be rooting for the candidates to destroy each other, I feel that there are some lines that shouldn’t be crossed – and this is one of them. If these types of attacks between candidates are allowed to stand in the primary unchallenged, imagine what it would be like during the general election campaign season when the floodgates open with Democrats lining up to smear Trump with questions about his mental health and Republicans questioning Biden (assuming he’s the nominee) about his memory?

There are ways for people to raise questions about Biden’s health and age without making complete a**ses out of themselves. But just like his brother Joaquin, there are no lows to which Julian will not sink, and no apologies in the aftermath which will be given.

In fact, Julian Castro is so proud of himself over his attack (which he absurdly claimed was not about his age), that he is now fundraising off of it:

“I had a critical choice to make on the debate stage last night,” Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary, said in an email to supporters. “I could either play it safe and give Vice President Biden a free pass like everyone else. Or I could speak up, challenge the conversation, and demand answers for you and your family.”

“I’m not in this race to play it safe. This fight — our fight — is too important to me to stay quiet when what I hear doesn’t add up,” he continued. “I spent every second on that stage fighting for you — and now I’m being attacked for it.”

“This is now the biggest obstacle I have ever faced. Can I count on you to take a stand for me with $5?”

Got that? Castro says he selflessly (and erroneously) took an cheap shot against an aging candidate because he’s looking out for the voters, not for himself.

What bull crap. I know they say all is fair in love, war, and politics, but these type of gutter tactics are what people whose polling numbers have consistently been in the basement do when nothing else works.

His desperation shows. And it stinks.

South Florida Porn Provider Makes Effort to Sponsor NBA Arena

Westlake Legal Group Bang-Bros-2-620x385 South Florida Porn Provider Makes Effort to Sponsor NBA Arena Sports sexual harassment NBA miami Front Page Stories Front Page Florida Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment basketball

Fire up your entendres!

In a move of pure PR that will not close the deal a Miami-based pornography outlet has made a bid to secure the naming rights for the home court of the Miami Heat. The adult entertainment outlet Bang Bros has issued a formal bid with the authorities to have the arena on South Beach named after them.

In a tweeted announcement the company released yesterday they declared their intentions to secure sponsorship of the basketball facility. ”We’ve officially Submitted our $10,000,000 bid for the naming rights to the Miami Heat Arena. We wish to thank American Airlines for their past support of the @MiamiHEAT We intend to change the name to the BangBros Center aka ‘The BBC’ #BangBrosCares.”

As unlikely as this will become there is a level of legitimate effort. The 20-year arrangement with American Airlines to be the named sponsor of the arena is coming to a close. In a deal being brokered by the local government the new effort is underway to secure a new sponsor. The arena is owned by Dade County and last year the commission announced that the naming rights, which had been in control of the Heat ownership would revert to the government authorities. They have until the end of 2019, after which the deal stipulates they must pay the team $2 million in annual naming revenue.

The county, therefore, is seeking a deal well in excess of that figure, and as soon as word was announced that the American Airlines Arena would be shopping for a new sponsor The Bang Bros arrived with its announced bid of $10 million. In the released statement the porn company also included a mock-up photograph of how the arena would be proposed to appear.

Currently the roof of ‘The Triple-A” has an image of an airliner, with the American Airlines logo. This was intentional, as the nearby Miami International Airport has some flights going overhead, and the airline uses Miami as one of its hubs. The Bang Bros created an image with their company logo – a van with the doors open – shown on the roof. The porn outlet made a name for itself with videos of sex scenes taking place in vans that were driving through the area.

It is not expected that this proposal will be taken under consideration. Miami-Dade County already has a standard in place that any contracts or sponsorship agreements must be with businesses that are regarded as family-friendly. This meant that the stadium was not permitted to be sponsored by any companies affiliated with alcohol, or tobacco products. It is safe to say that a porn purveyor – albeit a local one – would be prevented from doing business under this guideline.

A new ad from California Republican Elizabeth Heng’s “New Faces GOP” PAC that ran Thursday night during the Democratic debate has got people talking.

The ad, which was broadcast on a local ABC affiliate in the Washington, DC area, portrayed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as the “face of socialism.” It’s what happened next in the ad that outraged AOC and her online mob:

A dramatic ad targeting Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aired during the third Democratic debate on Thursday, comparing Ocasio-Cortez’s support for democratic socialism to the brutal Khmer Rouge communist regime in Cambodia.

The ad shows a picture of the young congresswoman bursting into flame to reveal a picture of a pile of skulls. The narrator of the ad, onetime Republican congressional candidate Elizabeth Heng, is the daughter of Cambodian immigrants.

“This is the face of socialism and ignorance,” Heng says in a voiceover as the picture of Ocasio-Cortez burns. “Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez know the horror of socialism?”

Watch the full 30 second ad below:

Naturally, AOC’s default response was the play the race card:

The next day, the self-described “democratic socialist” continued to play the race card against Heng – who is not white:

Not only is Heng the daughter of Cambodian immigrants (which kinda disqualifies her from the white supremacy club), but the ad was paid for by Heng’s PAC, not any elected GOP official.

But AOC wasn’t done. Next on her list of people or things to sic her digital lynch mob on was Sinclair Broadcasting:

Ocasio-Cortez’s meltdown was largely responsible for the #BoycottABC hashtag that has trended on Twitter today.

If the leader of the so-called “Squad” thought her Twitter rant was going to get Heng to back down, she was wrong:

Later, Heng made it clear to AOC that facts don’t care about your feelings:

I’m sure it’s not lost on the many people reading this who have kept up with Ocasio-Cortez’s frequent unhinged rants against her critics that she is the last person in this country who should be complaining about making provocative comparisons to evil regimes. To this day, the woman who compared detention centers for illegal immigrants to concentration camps still believes what the United States is doing at the southern border is no different than what took place in Nazi Germany.

Beyond the bogus accusations of racism and white supremacy, what the freshman Democratic Congressman willfully ignored was the real point behind the ad:

My question is: How long will it be before Facebook and Twitter pull Heng’s video? They did it to her before when she ran for Congress last year in what Red State’s streiff speculated was more about “interfer[ing] in a federal election campaign” than a benign attempt to shield Facebook users from sensitive imagery.

Stay tuned:

Video: Pelosi Gives Bizarre Hot Take on NC-9 Bellwether Race, Says Dem Who Lost Election “Won the Campaign”

After Republican State Senator Dan Bishop won Tuesday night’s hotly contested special election for North Carolina’s 9th congressional district, the spin from the mainstream media and Democrats was both predictable and hilarious.

The race had been billed as a bellwether race for 2020 for months in advance of election day. If Democrat Dan McCready won, it would be a repudiation of President Trump. If Bishop won, it would … mean nothing.

In the aftermath of Bishop’s victory, journalists and liberal commentators switched gears by saying the race contained a mixture of good news and bad news “for both sides.” Also, they asserted Bishop’s win was also a repudiation of Trump or something because the Republican candidate didn’t win the solidly red district by overwhelming numbers.

Like I said: Predictable and hilarious.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) gave what was perhaps the most bizarre spin on what happened when she spoke about McCready’s loss on Thursday, telling reporters McCready “won the campaign” but lost the election:

“I’m very proud of Dan MCready. He’s a great patriot, he’s an independent voice for the district he would have represented,” Pelosi said in press conference on Thursday.

The California Democrat said because MCready performed better than past Democratic candidates in previous elections, “he won the campaign. He didn’t win the election, he won the campaign.”

Watch:

As Bonchie noted the day after the election, the election was actually not good news at all for Democrats.

I speak from firsthand experience when I tell you the atmosphere in this state, in the district, was that McCready was going to win in spite of polls showing a close race. Bishop was the underdog. He was outspent. He had much less time to campaign for the seat than McCready. Bishop was hammered by Democrats and local (liberal) newspaper editorial boards for his support of Trump.

Democrats were mad as hell over the tainted results of the November 2018 race that led to fraud indictments against an ABM ballot harvester affiliated with the original Republican candidate Mark Harris. There was a lot going against Bishop, even in a district that had been in Republican hands since the mid-60s.

He won it anyway, and in the process flipped two counties that had gone for McCready in 2018.

This election does not mean that 2020 will be a cakewalk by any stretch for Republicans in 2020. It means there is a lot of work to be done between now and then in Congressional districts across the country. The fight is on.

But spinning McCready’s loss as a “campaign win” is about as pathetic as it gets for Pelosi. Stacey Abrams must be proud.
