President Trump’s remarks at the UN were noteworthy, not so much for their radical departure from the interventionist policies of the two Bush presidents, and their rejection of the weakness and globalism of Obama, but for their return to the principles of George Washington.

We agree with the President that there is a “lingering stench” at the Justice Department and FBI, however, it is unclear whether Rod Rosenstein will resign, be fired or stay in his position. The question is, is firing Rosenstein a set-up as Sean Hannity suggests, or something that needs to happen right away, as Judge Jeanne Piro and Laura Ingraham have urged.

The best solutions to problems aren’t always the ones that cost the most money, something Washington politicians have a hard time realizing. Republicans would accomplish a lot more if they’d cast off their phony “bipartisan” appearances and act more like Democrats…and hang together.

Contrast Brett Kavanaugh’s description of himself in high school and college, and that of the women who dated him and knew him well, with the feminist hatred of “the patriarchy” and “white male privilege” and the sexually commoditized alcohol-fueled party scene described in Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks from Holton Arms and you see the perfect target for feminist fury.

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
With the rise of the alternative media, conservatives have a seat at the table, which they didn’t have when newspapers were dominant and confined them to largely unread editorial pages.  (Excerpt 35 of 45 from America’s Right Turn.)

Should Republican senators fail to pass Kavanaugh through the system and confirm him there will be consequences for the GOP as a whole. Voters want leaders who stand up for what’s right, not elected cowards who shiver at rumors and scurrilous gossip. Will the truth prevail here?

This isn’t about Brett Kavanaugh's abstract qualifications; his intellect, his knowledge of the law and the quality of his judicial product. This is a religious war over abortion and it is time to recognize Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations for what they are – the Far Left’s first female suicide bombing.

For all those tired of déjà vu in American government it’s time to band together to force changes. The freak show surrounding Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has tarnished the reputations of our political institutions. Isn’t it time to say we’re not going to sit by and take it any longer?

Every step of land in America had something from the past occur on it. Proponents of Heritage Areas are using our great love of history as an emotional sledgehammer to impose a massive federal pork barrel scheme that enriches the pockets of private advocacy groups by helping to impose draconian controls over the dreams of average American homeowners.

Does any of the wild partying and promiscuity documented in the hidden Holton Arms yearbooks excuse a sexual assault, as alleged by Dr. Blasey Ford? Of course not, but what it does do is to put into context the allegations of a privileged, and perhaps troubled young woman, whose relationship with alcohol casts a great deal of doubt on her memory and her claims of powerlessness.

President Trump is fortunate to have a strong “bench” full of Republican political players he can call on in times of need. The GOP “fantasy team” includes not only a dream starting lineup but also capable backups who contribute. The Democrats? They’re all hopeless benchwarmers.

The Trump administration appears to share the belief of prior administrations that it can transform the Middle East in America’s image. But Washington’s record in the Middle East is catastrophic. It is time to bring home America’s troops.

    Republicans who are allowing this travesty to continue have no idea whatsoever how it will end. They have allowed it to go on to the point where they are now in danger of completely losing control of the Kavanaugh hearings. We cannot say how many people can come forward with lurid stories, but we can say that this late in the game the Democrats will claim everyone should get a hearing. No matter how many questions they cannot answer. Or how many questions make them uncomfortable. Or how many questions make them vaguely nauseous.

  • Editors, Washington Examiner

    The nation is nowhere near the point at which armed rebellion could be justified, but it has suffered a lot under rulers who failed to put America first. For those who believe that Trump’s policy is incoherent, or just a mish-mash of inherited conservative ideas with some anti-immigration and anti-trade rhetoric thrown in, this speech should make them think again. Trump has a coherent view of the world, and it’s very helpful to hear it spelled out in this way.

    I felt a bit sorry for Bredesen. I'm willing to accept local talk that he was a decent mayor and governor. I think he actually believes he can "make a difference" in a party that, for some time now, has been running off the partisan rails. But watching the lockstep near Stalin-like behavior of the Democrats at the Kavanauagh hearings, you realize joining that crew thinking you could change them is like joining the Politburo in the Thirties for the same reason.  That's how people got shot. Oh, by the way, Marsha supports Brett.  Phil is waiting to see.

  • Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

    Never has the reality that we are living in a surreal age been clearer than during the strange cycles of Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. According to some polls, about half the country believes that Brett Kavanaugh is now guilty of a crime committed 36 years ago at the age of 17. And that reality reminds us that we are no longer in America. We are already living well into the socialist totalitarian Hell that Orwell warned us about long ago.

  • Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

    Once the hearings are over Mrs. Ford will be forgotten and she can return to her couples therapy and continue to put her troubled marriage together. The judge should understand that there was noting personal in the Democratic destruction of his reputation, the humiliation of his wife and the breaking of the hearts of his two little girls. Collateral damage, and all that. Win or lose Mrs. Feinstein will go home a heroine in San Francisco, where the streets in the sanctuary by the Bay are paved with human excrement. (If you live there you have to get used to excrement of all kinds.)

  • Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

    Thank God that Republicans didn’t kill the Garland nomination by tearing down the man and spending months trying to find high school classmates to claim attempted rape and near-death experiences. At some point one must consider whether evil means are justified for progressive ends. The bottom line is that this media-enabled Democratic smear campaign simply can’t be the standard by which we destroy people. Watching this miscarriage of justice is radicalizing those who care about rule of law and political processes that have a semblance of sanity.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    Thursday is shaping up to be the Trump presidency's "Gunfight at O.K. Corral." That day, the fates of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and much else, may be decided. We are often told that the moment we are in has historic significance and will be long remembered. Yet, how many can still recall what the "resister" in the Trump White House or Cabinet wrote in his or her anonymous op-ed in The New York Times? How Kavanaugh conducts himself Thursday, however, and whether he is elevated to the court, could decide the fate of constitutional conservatism and the Republican Congress in 2018.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    Team Ford also expressed unhappiness with Grassley's decision to hire "an experienced sex-crimes prosecutor to serve as an investigative staff counsel for the hearing" and conduct the questioning of both Ford and Kavanaugh. Ford's lawyers said the hire -- a move with plenty of precedent in Senate investigations -- is "contrary to the majority's repeated emphasis on the need for the Senate and this committee's members to fulfill their constitutional obligations." The Ford legal team requested a meeting about the new counsel on Tuesday. Are the new protests a prelude to Ford rejecting yet another hearing date? That's not yet clear. But if she does, she'll have the support of Senate Democrats.

  • Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

    What’s the rule? You can slap around your spouse as an adult, and you get a pass? Credible rape claims as an adult, and hail to the chief? Leave a woman to drown, as an adult, a senator, and you’re the Lion of the Senate? Booze it up and hit the gas – as an adult – but who cares? That seems incongruous. Gosh, what’s the common thread between all these malefactors? Adults, Democrats, up to kill babies. Gee, I’m seeing a pattern. But minor, Republican, not wanting to kill babies – unforgiveable!

  • James Freeman, Wall Street Journal

    Current polls suggest that Republicans could be in for a rough November, but not as rough as one might expect among a key voting constituency. Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report writes today that Democrats are confident about their support among suburban women, but enthusiasm among female Democratic voters “isn’t being replicated among another group of voters that theoretically should be as motivated — or more — to vote for Democrats: Latino voters.”

  • Stephen Moore, Washington Times

    Republicans should be for legal immigration. The “big beautiful wall” Mr. Trump wants to erect should also have big, beautiful gates for immigrants to enter orderly and lawfully. The last thing Democrats want on the eve of the midterm elections is to have to go on TV and explain why they won’t vote for funding the government because they don’t want Mr. Trump to secure America’s borders. And if House and Senate Republicans don’t want to go to the mat on this issue, then Trump voters are probably right in asking: What’s the point of having a Republican Congress anyway?

  • Sean Davis, The Federalist

    If GOP lawmakers show that they do have a spine and are no longer willing to let the other side get away with reputation murder, they might actually keep both their House and Senate majorities in November. As Trump has shown, even discouraged Republican voters are willing to stand behind somebody who’s willing to stand up for them. If Republicans do the right thing, they will be rewarded at the polls. If they continue to cower and allow themselves to be bullied by tinpot totalitarians like Chuck Schumer and Mazie Hirono, then they’re going to deserve everything that’s coming to them in November.

  • David Catron, The American Spectator

    Anyone who believes that the way to punish RINOs is to give Congress back to the Democrats needs to stop skipping her medication. The sane strategy for getting rid of weak Republicans is to replace them with strong Republicans. What we are seeing now is nothing compared to the crimes against democracy the Democrats will commit if they capture a majority in either house of Congress. The only way to stop them is show up at the polls in November and crush them like the insects they are.

  • Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

    The endless tap dance about how and when Ford should testify - and the absolutely astonishing demand that Kavanaugh should testify first, before his accuser, turning the rule of law on its head - completes this picture of the #MeToo movement gone berserk.  Genuine victims of abuse will, of course, suffer as people become increasingly fed up with this charade. Did Feinstein, Schumer et al think of that in their zeal to get Kavanaugh?  If he does go down, it will be a Pyrrhic victory anyway.

  • John Fund, National Review

    Spare us the hyper-moralizing speeches, the condemnation of half the human species simply because they are male, and the insistence that women who say they’ve suffered sexual assault must automatically be believed. Senator Mazie Hirono today poses as a brave feminist cultural warrior, but when it really counted in her own backyard in Hawaii, she was AWOL. The same holds true when Bill Clinton’s predations were in the news in the late 1990s.
