Jeff Flake's astonishing admission of no principles

- The Washington Times

Sen. Jeff Flake said in an interview on "60 Minutes" that if he were running for re-election, there'd be no way he would call for the FBI to investigate Judge Brett Kavanaugh. This is astonishing. What Flake is admitting, in essence, is that he is unprincipled.

Christine Blasey Ford testimony still leaves questions

- The Washington Times

Christine Blasey Ford has spoken -- and first impressions? Her voice is like a little girl's. Her professional credentials are extensive. And she's scared to death at the can of worms that's been opened. And her testimony still leaves question marks in Brett Kavanaugh supporters' minds.

Ted Cruz restaurant confrontation backfires

- The Washington Times

The uncalled-for and inappropriate verbal attack on Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife at a D.C. restaurant has backfired, it seems, and now the owners of the establishment say they're getting death threats. This is not a 'hey-ho, that's what the left gets' moment. Nobody deserves death threats. But it is a wake-up call to the Democrats.

- The Washington Times

Noel Francisco is about to become one of the most important men in Washington, D.C. Why? The solicitor general will be the leading guy in the whole Russia collusion theory the left's been peddling against President Donald Trump since -- well, since the dawn of Trump's political career.

Christine Blasey Ford is not the victim here -- Brett Kavanaugh is

- The Washington Times

The left has been having its usual field day with truth, drumming a beat that Christine Blasey Ford is a victim, simply because she pointed a finger Judge Brett Kavanaugh's way, and therefore she has a right to remain hidden in the shadows, shielded from questioning and criticisms and prying eyes into her past because, after all -- she is the Victim. But at this point in time, it's Kavanaugh who's the victim.

Kavanaugh nomination moves into bizarro male-bashing land

- The Washington Times

The Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh has moved out of the field of nomination and into the bizarro field of male-bashing.

Brett Kavanaugh should stay the course, stand strong

- The Washington Times

The Democrats may think they're about to sink their shark teeth deep into Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, via an out-of-left-field sexual assault allegation from a woman, Christine Blasey Ford, touting a decades-old high school party story. But here's a "hey you guys" moment from none other than the woman who accused Keith Ellison of -- get this -- domestic abuse. And who has supporting statements and medical records to prove it.

Eric Holder came forward at a recent Human Rights Campaign dinner to say, shock of all shocks, President Donald Trump is a fear-mongering disaster who's busily selling so-called patriotic lines to like-minded bigots as part of a desperate political ploy to keep ahold of his White House power.

David Hogg, the headache that keeps on coming

- The Washington Times

David Hogg, the teenage Parkland-shooting-sufferer-turned-political activist, took to Twitter to call out U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley as an audacious failure who ought to resign her post pronto. If only Hogg's reasoning were sound, maybe he wouldn't be such a headache.
