NO SURPRISE HERE: So, it turns out the woman who sent the letter to Democrat lawmakers accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct three decades ago is a far left activist and California professor named Christine Blasey Ford. Yeah, SUCH a solid source for last minute slander against a Trump nominee. Pblt.
FEINSTEIN: Washington Examiner columnist Tim Carney says it’s not unusual for victims to remain silent about an attack for several decades. “The silence of Dianne Feinstein is another thing. In July Feinstein heard this story from Ford. Yet she didn’t act on it. She didn’t ask Kavanaugh about it in committee, in closed session, in written questions, or in a one-on-one meeting.”
OCTOBER SURPRISES: Dems aren’t the only ones who can play this game. Jim Holt at Gateway Pundit tweets, “OMG! Just met with @JamesOKeefeIII and @charliekirk11 to view The upcoming BOMB James is about to Drop on Deep State!!! @TheDemocrats should be VERY WORRIED!!”
SPEAKING OF FEAR: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said this week that Democrats and the media are likely to be “frightened” by the information contained in Trump-Russia documents that Republicans are asking President Trump to declassify.
Prager University: What is Hezbollah?
KARMA: Greg Craig is a lawyer who served in the Obama and Clinton administrations. He is now likely to face federal charges for failing to register as a foreign agent. The irony is that this probably would never have come up without the investigation of Paul Manafort.
DIVERSITY: Back atcha, Democrats! On Saturday, about a group of about two dozen, all-white Antifa Marxists turned out to protest the Gateway Eagle Council conference in St. Louis. Conservative gay activist and Twitter star Scott Presler ragged on them: “Where’s your diversity? We have a gays, Jews and blacks. Where’s your diversity?”
FAKE NEWS: A Weather Channel reporter who pretended to struggle to stay on his feet while “braving” the apocalyptic winds of Hurricane Florence was busted when two guys casually strolled by in the background. Stilton made this perspicacious observation: “What a perfect visual metaphor it is for the way every news story seems to be reported these days. Everything is an emergency and looming disaster. Everything is a grave risk to our freedoms and our way of life. And everything depends on paying very, very close attention to the hyperventilating talking heads rather than what we can see with our own eyes in the background.”
HURRICANE MARIA UPDATE: Luis G. Rivera-Marin, Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of State of Puerto Rico, writes that nearly one year after Hurricane Maria, the island’s recovery has been spurred by the “extraordinary operation” of our federal government. “More than $44 billion for housing, small businesses, temporary shelter, disaster unemployment, public assistance and community-development purposes has been secured by President Trump — the largest amount by any administration assigned to the island.”
UNBROKEN SEQUEL: Many filmgoers remember the 2014 film Unbroken, which tells the epic story of how Louis Zamperini crashed in the Pacific Ocean and survived nearly three years as a prisoner in a Japanese POW camp. A new movie, Unbroken, Path to Redemption, tells the second half of the story as he returns home from war. Zamperini suffered from post-traumatic-stress-disorder and began drinking heavily. His life and marriage were spinning out of control — until he embraced Christianity.
