#DearProfessorFord if your own two witnesses dispute your case denying they ever saw any type of behavior by Kavanaugh how is any objective person going to take your case seriously? If you can't remember when, where, or other details that hurts your case as well. If you can't remember any of those details or others and your own witnesses don't corroborate your story is it possible you are mistaken in who assaulted you, when they assaulted you or even where?

Democrats are trying to stall the Kavanaugh confirmation because they believe they can win enough seats in the midterms to stop any Trump nominations to SCOTUS. People better get out and vote those Democrats out in November if you want to see a fair/impartial SCOTUS. The last Democratic president nominated and the Senate confirmed, two liberal activist judges to SCOTUS, those being Sotomayor and Kagan. There were tens of thousands of documents related to their history that were not even requested during confirmation hearings.

Democrats: Trump should not declassify Russia investigation information, it could jeopardize sources and methods!
Translation: We don't want the American people to see how many times Steele was used as a source & how the FBI/DOJ used the media as a source. Democrats didn't seem so concerned about sources and methods when they wanted stuff declassified that could fit their narrative. They even wrote the president requesting it be done on behalf of the American people.

This woman doesn't comprehend reality. Other races do not orbit around 'whiteness'. In Asia the structure is around the Asian race, in Africa the African race, in Latin America, it is around Hispanics. In Europe around white and some mixed in southern and eastern Europe. If other races revolved around 'whiteness' as Hathaway proclaims, then there would be white power structures in every country on every continent. However, there aren't, they structured by the most populace race of those countries.

Democrats shifting to familiar smear tactic dredging up an accusation that likely can't be proven. Dianne Feinstein withholding Brett Kavanaugh document from fellow Judiciary Committee Democrats interc.pt/2xe19M3 This is an incident that reportedly happened when Kavanaugh and the woman in question were in high school together. Kavanaugh graduated around 1983. Recall how another Democrat, Tester, did this with ADM Ronny Jackson. Those accusations are still unproven today.

The left has been making this end of Roe v. Wade argument ever since it was first ruled Constitutional by the SCOTUS. Every time a Republican nominee for SCOTUS comes up they claim it is the end of Roe v. Wade. Clarence Thomas was nominated by George HW Bush in 1991 and the Democrats screamed it would be the end of Roe v. Wade. That was 27 years ago & abortion is still here and SCOTUS rejected Arkansas' restrictions on abortion in May 2018.

I don't doubt there is friction in the Trump White House. A White House without any friction is nothing more than an echo chamber of adulation for the sitting president. There should be clashes of ideas within an administration to minimize bad ideas. That's why there is a cabinet and this is also why there are aides to the president, cabinet secretaries, and career officials within every agency and department throughout an administration. During the first term of Bush 43 and both terms of Obama there was very little friction if any leading to bad policies

All of the people having a fit over President Trump not attending McCain's funeral barely batted an eye when Obama did not show up for the funeral of General Greene who was the highest ranking officer killed since Vietnam. They didn't have a fit over Obama not attending the funeral of Nancy Reagan either. They also did not have a fit over Obama not attending the funeral of Margaret Thatcher.

You didn't seem to take issue when the Obama Administration was reviewing taking away clearances. Democrats were salivating about taking away clearances from those no longer in government positions. Clapper wanted to review clearances of 5 MILLION people! Where was your voice? Clapper’s directive indicates that the Obama administration has not only begun to view the huge number of clearances as a security risk, but a serious budgetary stress. The federal government spends about $1 billion a year on background checks, according to the GAO.

Hard to impeach any president without having anywhere near enough votes for it in the HoR and even fewer votes for trial in the US Senate. Clinton's was impeached by a narrow margin on two votes (228-206, 221-212). Less likely Trump articles would get more than 100 votes now. Bill Clinton's impeachment proceedings dealt with his perjury before a grand jury. Trump has not perjured himself to warrant anything similar. Articles of Impeachment for not liking a president won't get farther than 50-75 votes, all Democrats. Nowhere near 2/3 requirement.

The liberal view: Campaign finance laws are only violations if they are done by somebody I don't like!
Nearly every campaign gets slapped with some form of campaign finance law, including Obama. politico.com/story/2013/01/… Evan McMullin faced campaign finance violations from the 2016 election cycle. dailycaller.com/2018/04/17/eva… He wasn't even a contender, but possibly an offender!

I'm sure if an angry mob of Christians tore down the baphomet statue in Arkansas, like the students tore down Silent Sam, the media would be demanding they were all identified and jailed. Just because you don't like something doesn't give you license to destroy it. I'm not defending the Silent Sam statue, it really doesn't hold any meaning for me, but it does for people who's ancestors fought for the state. The dedication of the statue was for those that were students or alumni of UNC-CH. A lot of those people took up arms in defense of NC.

I'd dismiss you as an idiot for asking the president such a question without any tangible evidence. Media thrives on division and sensationalism and pushing their own agenda. If you liked a policy you talk about how great it is, if you don't you smear & criticize ANY president. The media started losing credibility 20 or more years before Trump even ran. People get sick of the news media dissecting every word a person says for some hidden meaning or that some salacious gossip must be true & you feed the beast with more innuendo & nonsense.

John Brenna should have been fired long ago. His failures as CIA station chief in Saudi Arabia should have been a huge clue of how catastrophic of a failure he would be yet Bush & Obama had him in national security positions as Nat Sec Adviser to CIA Director. John Brennan's CIA spied on members of Congress, a gross violation of the CIA's charter. Brennan should have been fired over this abuse of power. Yet, he was kept in the position as CIA Director by President Obama. theatlantic.com/politics/archi…

Pundits are making a big deal out of #OH12 having been Republican for decades. When the incumbent steps down, the replacement wins the district by a far narrower margin or if the seat has a Democrat. Kasich, won the district 50-47 in 1982. Pat Tiberi, the incumbent that stepped down, won the district 52.87-43.83 against Democrat Maryellen O'Shaughnessy. The seat was vacated by John Kasich during that election in 2000. Obama won the district 53% to 46% in 08. Bush won it against Kerry 51-49 (not exactly a blow out).

Twitter stock plunges 20 percent following a purge of fake and suspicious accounts chicagotribune.com/business/ct-bi…
That's going to happen when you delete actual users & sites list accounts as 'shadow banned' regardless if they are or not. You're driving away a large segment of your biz. Most of the sites I've checked accounts for 'shadow ban' have only shown accounts with a right leaning slant as being 'shadow banned' but some of the worst left leaning accounts do not. Twitter has to fix this or continue to lose large numbers of users.

@ShepNewsTeam cut off the video where Dan Coats continued, "we haven't seen any evidence of election interference as we saw in 2016. This doesn't mean we aren't one click away from it." Russia & China both attempt to undermine our country in one way or another for their own purposes. Both want to change the post WWII order and replace the US as the preeminent power.

You could get one of Putin's intel officers to admit it right in front of him and Putin would still deny it. You aren't going to change Putin's behavior. Bush couldn't, Obama couldn't, and now Trump is trying is a different approach. Putin will be Putin & he'll put Russia first. Putin does not care what our president (any of them) has thought of him nor does he care if you have proof of his doing something wrong. The only way to beat Putin at something is do it better than he does.

Calling out Putin on the world stage at a summit accomplishes nothing more than exacerbating an already existing problem. Obama did not do it when he was in office. He waited until he was back at the White House to claim he told Putin to cut it out. Difference is Trump has something already prepared by the intelligence community to counter Russian interference in the midterms if Russia decides to meddle again. Which, it likely will. We had the capability to hit Iran with Stuxnet, do you really think we can't hit Russia?

Harley Davidson says it is moving overseas because of Trump policies, but it has been moving overseas since at least 2010. It has a plant in India (2011) and Thailand (2017). Harley hurt itself by not adapting its business model for younger riders. In 2011, Harley Davidson announced plans to open a factory in India to produce the new Street 500 & 750 models. The company also expressed interest in moving overseas in 2009 due to employee costs.

@ChuckGrassley & @TGowdySC should ask Strzok:
1. When were you aware of message traffic the Russians did not believe Trump could win the primary or the election? 2. When were you made aware Russia's emphasis was on damaging HRC in order to keep her administration under investigation so it would be crippled in its ability to function?
