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.

Noel Francisco, D.C.'s suddenly most important man

- 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. Kavanaugh's confirmation has now become the left's means of publicly hating on males -- white males, in particular, at least according to "View" host Joy Behar.

Brett Kavanaugh should stay the course, stand strong

- The Washington Times

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court hearings have devolved into a cesspool of she-said, her-attorney-said accusations -- and from that, Democrats have run roughshod, demanding a postponement and wait for it, wait for it, killing of the entire nomination.

Keith Ellison domestic abuse accuser sends Dems much-needed smackdown

- 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, back with an anti-Trump bluster

- The Washington Times

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. Yawn. This is Holder's whole schtick

Democrats have scored a big one with their latest on Brett Kavanaugh, going all the way back to high school to give voice to a female who's weighing in, mid-#MeToo movement time, no less, with some scathing accusations that the Supreme Court nominee, in his teen years, once pinned her to a bed at a party.

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.

CNN poll admits 'Impeach Trump' short on facts

- The Washington Times

Ann Coulter, conservative columnist, said in a recent interview with the Daily Beast that Jared Kushner, son-in-law to Donald Trump, is the one who penned the anonymously published presidential hatchet job in The New York Times. It's a bit of a stretch. A bit of a ring toss.

President Obama's directive ordering schools to accommodate transgender students has been controversial in some places but since 2012 Seattle has mandated that transgender students be able to use of the bathrooms and locker rooms of their choice. Nearly half of the district's 15 high schools already have gender neutral bathrooms and one high school has had a transgender bathroom for 20 years. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson) ** FILE **

New York City's new genderless abomination

- The Washington Times

Members of the New York City Council and Board of Health voted to add a third gender category to birth certificates -- "X" -- beginning in 2019. With a stroke of a pen, confusion prevails. Male, female, whatever. The vote means anyone can self-identify as anything, no doctor's note needed.
