TOM COTTON BELIEVES CHUCK SCHUMER IS BEHIND FORD’S LEAKED LETTER
Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas accused Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday of being involved in the operation to leak Christine Blasey Ford’s letter to the public.
from Piers Morgan at The Daily Mail:
Yes – anti-gun liberal, U.K. nut-job Piers Morgan, who I now find I agree with more than less. Funny ole world isn’t it!
There’s only one winner in Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly’s gutless surrender to the howling Twitter mob – President Trump
Why, why, WHY?
Just when I thought you were the only sane celebrity left in this increasingly mad world of frenzied partisan bulls**t, you suddenly decide to go all ‘woke’ on me.
As you once sang: ‘Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?’
Of course, we all know the answer.
Taylor Swift, who is hugely popular in middle America, hasn’t chosen this moment to abandon her very sensible apolitical stance and come out as a Democrat because she genuinely thought: ‘Oh, I must alienate half my audience today.’

Many opponents of MMA claim they are due to safety concerns for the fighters. I frankly don’t give a crap. Oh sure, as a Christian, I don’t want anyone to be hurt, but as a freedom loving conservative, it’s their right to be as moronic as they wish and beat the crap out of each other for profit and the amusement of the masses.
As an aside, in my opinion as a martial artist, calling this “sport,” Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is an affront to the discipline and dedication of martial arts. Training oneself in some aspects of various styles of martial arts for the sole purpose of beating the hell of another is decidedly not martial arts. But, as I said, that’s just my opinion.
Many have called them modern day Gladiators, but it’s much worse than that. In the early days of gladiatorial contests, none of the fighters had a choice to “compete.” They weren’t Romans. They were men captured from conquered territories, or slaves or indentured servants. These men were conscripted into Gladiator schools and trained to fight. They didn’t have a choice.
It wasn’t until later, as the spectacle grew in popularity, that free men and even women volunteered, due to the lure of fame and fortune. Some from Rome’s upper crust political class tried their hands, drawn by the allure of the roaring and fawning crowds. Even a few Roman Emperors entered the ring. Although their matches resembled a fixed WWE match rather than a real battle.
Anti-Trump, Far-Left California Judge Shows Why Judicial Nominations Matter
A federal judge in — where else? — California has ruled that the U.S. can’t send temporary refugees back to their countries because, basically, he doesn’t like President Trump. In doing so, he’s shown why both elections and judicial nominations matter.
Federal Judge Edward M. Chen is a classic President Obama appointee to the bench. A legal leftist from the University of California, Berkeley, his first years in practice were spent as a staff lawyer for the ACLU.
His credentials from then on out remained impeccably progressive, all the way until Obama named him to the federal bench.
This week, Chen ruled that the Trump administration’s decision to return 262,000 people back to Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Sudan who were here under Temporary Protected Status (TPS) was somehow illegitimate because, in Chen’s opinion, Trump is racist.
It’s hard to tell whether the left is confident or concerned regarding the upcoming midterm elections – but I suppose we can say the same of the right.
For example, my man Sen. Ted Cruz is running for re-election in Texas against Democratic challenger and monumental phony “Beto” O’Rourke. Any reasonable person would think that Cruz will wipe the floor with this guy and beat him by double digits.
And that may happen, but one would never know by the email alerts sent from Cruz’s campaign. The alerts paint a picture of desperation – as if he is down by double digits.
Speaking of email alerts – nice segue, eh – I also receive alerts from the far-left radicals MoveOn.org. I think it’s good to keep a finger on the pulse of Marxists – to really know what they consider important without the media filter.
I’m not sure what to make of this last alert. It’s the first time I’ve seen anything like this from MoveOn. They are always asking for money to push one leftist cause or another, but that’s all they do: beg for money.
Yet this time they’ve stepped up their game by offering a MoveOn spatula. Yes, a spatula:

What If Kavanaugh Was a Liberal Muslim Accused of Terrorism?
As a law professor for half a century, I tested the consistency and strength of my students’ arguments by constructing thought experiments in the form of challenging hypothetical cases — we called them hypos. So let’s construct one to test the arguments being offered in the Kavanaugh case.
A thought experiment: President Hillary Clinton nominates the first Muslim-American to the Supreme Court. Let’s call him Amir Hassan. He is highly qualified and his nomination is widely supported by most Democrats and some centrists.
Most Republicans oppose him and accuse him of being a judicial activist. Then several witnesses place him at a mosque at which terrorism was advocated. He claims he went there to hear all sides of the issue. One witness places him in a terrorism training camp but that account is not corroborated. One final witness identifies him as the man who planted the bomb that blew off his leg at a demonstration. He categorically denies any association with terrorism.

A civil liberties attorney has a problem with two Indiana public high schools. The schools announced that they will randomly drug test 10 students who wish to engage in extracurricular activities, for 10 drugs.
The attorney claims this is a Constitutional violation under the Fourth Amendment.
