    The woman who accused Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) of emotional and physical abuse is claiming that the Democratic Party "smeared, threatened [and] isolated" her after she went public with the allegations. Karen Monahan's comments come as a growing number of Democrats have expressed support for the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, saying they find her allegations credible. Monahan on Monday tweeted that Democrats have not stood by her. "I've been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party," Monahan tweeted. "I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about...

    The fight for the House majority is over. At least that’s the sense from a growing number of Democrats who are increasingly confident in their quest to seize control of at least one chamber of Congress six weeks before Election Day. The surging optimism among Democrats, usually shared in private, has begun to spill into the open as President Donald Trump’s approval ratings sink and the Republican Party struggles under the weight of the president’s self-imposed political crises and erratic behavior. […] But with the shock of Trump’s 2016 victory still fresh, some Democrats are painfully aware that significant factors...

    As the political fight over the sexual assault allegation made against Brett Kavanaugh intensifies, Democrats are indicating that -- even if confirmed -- they intend to drag the fight over his Supreme Court nomination past November, raising the possibility of an impeachment push.

    Strategery: Late Friday Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley took to Twitter to announce he’d granted Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, another delay after she said, through her lawyer, she would not be ready to testify before his committee by early next week. The delay was hugely disappointing to supporters of Judge Kavanaugh because they a) don’t buy Ford’s 36-year-old allegations given the suspicion and controversies surrounding them; and b) believe that he will make a fine Supreme Court justice for decades to come. It’s not clear why Grassley, R-Iowa, caved again. It’s...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the college professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of groping her at a drunken party in somebody's house near a park sometime in the early 1980s when both were high school students, has been resisting Republican requests for her to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) insists that "the Republican demand that it is the accuser's responsibility to tell her story to them is an attempt to silence her. Christine has already done her part to put the ball in play with her accusation. It is now Kavanaugh's job to...

  • Democrats accused of trying to bury Ellison abuse allegations with sluggish probe

    Washington Times ^ | 9/21/18 | Valerie Richardson
    Democrats taking to the airwaves to denounce Judge Brett Kavanaugh have been considerably less focused on their own abuse investigation into Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison. The Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party said a month ago it would investigate after a former girlfriend accused Mr. Ellison of emotional and physical abuse, but since then the party has said nothing as the probe fades largely from view. That’s undoubtedly by design, said Larry Jacobs, professor at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, who characterized the investigation as an exercise in damage control aimed at providing the party with political...

    FULL TITLE: Christine Blasey Ford Published Eight studies about “Abortion Pill” and Works for Company that Produces It Professor Christine Blasey Ford, while working for Stanford University, was also affiliated with Corcept Therapeutics (2006 – 2011). Her new Wikipedia page describes her as “director of biostatistics at Corcept.” Corcept Therapeutics Inc. (CORT) has a $1.66 billion market cap (worth), with current annual sales of $216 million. Liberals and feminists are very worried that Judge Brett Kavanaugh may participate in reversing Roe v. Wade. Christine Blasey wants to stop Kavanaugh from reaching the country’s highest court.

    Christine Blasey Ford has accused Brett M. Kavanaugh of attempted rape while they were both in high school -- a charge he unequivocally denies. She can't remember the date the alleged attack took place. She isn't even certain about the year (although she reportedly thinks it may have been the summer around the end of her sophomore year when she was 15). She can't remember whose house she was in. She can't remember how she got there. She says she didn't tell anyone about it at the time, not even her closest friends -- so there are no contemporaneous witnesses...

    Difficult as it may be to believe, the 2020 election is right around the corner. Candidates began announcing they were running for the 2016 election in the first few months of 2015, so expect candidates for the upcoming presidential election to announce they are running in early 2019. The Republican primaries are likely to be uneventful. Donald Trump remains popular among Republicans, so any NeverTrump who runs against him in the primaries won't pose much of a threat. The Democratic primaries are another matter. After Hillary Clinton's defeat in the last election, the Democratic Party has been leaderless, and a...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is poised to implement a new regulation without legislative approval to join 10 other states in a climate change agreement based on restricting carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants.But lawmakers, policy analysts, and tea party activists in Virginia who oppose what they consider costly regulations of industry are raising questions about the economic and scientific arguments underpinning the proposed rule.They say the Virginia General Assembly should have a straight up-or-down vote on Northam’s plan, in part to ensure that any revenue the governor raises from “carbon trading” is collected and dispersed in a manner consistent...

    President Donald Trump has done “irreparable” damage to the United States and is “impeachable,” regardless of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, a House Democrat said Thursday. Texas Representative Al Green, who has forced two failed votes to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump, renewed his call in an interview with Hill.TV. "What he has done to this society is harmful and in some cases it may be irreparable,” Green said on the media outlet’s Rising show. He gave the example of Trump telling “police officers that you don’t have to be nice, when you’re arresting someone.” "These are the kinds of...

    As the media frenzy over unsubstantiated accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reach a fever pitch, it’s truly instructive to observe the virtual news blackout over the case of Karen Monahan. Ms. Monahan has accused Rep. Keith Ellison, the vice chair of the Democratic National Committee and the party’s nominee for Minnesota attorney general, of physical abuse during the course of their relationship. Unlike Judge Cavanaugh’s accuser, Ms. Monahan is willing to go on the record to discuss the details of Mr. Ellison’s behavior. Also unlike Judge Cavanaugh’s accuser, Ms. Monahan has produced evidence to support the claims of...

    When President Obama embraced “Medicare for All” earlier this month, it was a remarkable moment. Not because the proposal will be adopted (it won’t) or because the price tag would bankrupt the nation (it would). Rather, it was a remarkable moment because a former American president played the role of enabler for the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). Indeed, Obama’s endorsement was a moment of great celebration for an organization that for years has plotted to hijack the Democratic Party and use it as a parasitic host to remake the nation. Here’s how. Back in 2012, the Vice Chairman of...

    Protesters have ramped up efforts to stop Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination in recent weeks after Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of sexually assaulting her three decades ago — an allegation Kavanaugh has vehemently denied. Dozens of demonstrators were arrested on Capitol Hill Thursday after taking over the offices of Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, Sen. Bob Corker, Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, among others, to once again call on lawmakers to reject Kavanaugh's nomination to the nation's highest court. A crowd of protesters crammed into Grassley's office for most of the day — even ordering in lunch. The majority...

    New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker is facing accusations of hypocrisy over his calls to delay the confirmation vote of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual misconduct allegations, as he once admitted groping a friend without her consent in high school. The senator, who urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to first let the FBI conduct an investigation after California professor Christine Blasey Ford accused the high court nominee of sexual assault over 35 years ago, once wrote an article detailing an instance where he groped a female friend. “New Year's Eve 1984 I will never forget. I was 15....
