Slanderer Christine Blasey Ford honored with Empowerment Award

This news makes me despair for America.

When Americans’ perception of reality can be so completely and irreconcilably different, what hope is there for our country?

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is the woman who accused then-Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her more than 30 years ago when they were both teenagers.

Ford’s allegations and testimony at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on September 27, 2018 were ripped apart by prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, the Nominations Investigative Counsel who cross-examined Ford and Kavanaugh during the hearing.

Three days after the hearing, Mitchell submitted her legal analysis of Ford’s allegations in a 10-page Memorandum, which began with this statement:

A “he said, she said” case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them. For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard.

Mitchell then elaborated on the reasons why Ford’s accusations are not believable (for a more detailed description of the Memorandum, see “Prosecutor Rachel Mitchell rips apart Christine Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh”):

  1. Ford gave inconsistent accounts of when the alleged assault happened.
  2. Ford gave inconsistent accounts of the alleged assault.
  3. Ford could not remember key details of the night in question which could help corroborate her account, including the house in which the alleged assault took place, and how she arrived at and left the party.
  4. Ford had no corroborating witnesses. All three of the individuals she named as having attended the party denied any memory of the party.
  5. Ford was inconsistent in describing the alleged incident to her husband.
  6. Ford did not name her assailant in her marriage therapy in 2012 or in her individual therapy in 2013.
  7. Ford’s memory of more recent events was also inconsistent and hazy, including when she had taken a polygraph test about the alleged assault.
  8. Ford was inconsistent in her claims of psychological effects (anxiety, claustrophia, PTSD) from the alleged assault.

The legal definition of slander is “the oral communication of false statements that are harmful to a person’s reputation”; “an act of communication that causes someone to be shamed, ridiculed, held in contempt, lowered in the estimation of the community, or to lose employment status or earnings or otherwise suffer a damaged reputation. Slander is a subcategory of defamation.”

Being inconsistent, hazy, unsubstantiated, uncorroborated, and without evidence or witness(es), Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Brett Kavanaugh are wholly incredible, intended to harm his reputation and thwart his confirmation to the Supreme Court, and therefore slanderous. Despite all that, yesterday (October 30) in Santa Clara, California, the Silicon Valley YWCA honored her with their 2019 Empowerment Award.

Jesse Gary sycophantically reports for KTVU Fox 2:

Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford made her first public speaking appearance since the Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings in 2018.

Rarely does an award recipient eclipse the keynote speaker. At the Silicon Valley YWCA’s annual luncheon Wednesday in Santa Clara, Doctor Christine Blasey-Ford took center stage, and the lion’s share of attention. She stepped forward to accept the non-profit’s 2019 Empowerment Award.

“It’s funny, I was inspired by Anita Hill when I was deciding whether to testify. But it didn’t occur to me at the time that I would be inspiring anyone else,” said Dr. Blasey-Ford.

In September of 2018, Blasey-Ford braved a withering attack while alleging then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 1980s. While Kavanaugh went on to gain confirmation to the High Court, Blasey-Ford helped lend credence to claims made by victims of sexual violence.

“I just really applaud her tremendous courage and continuing to come out and be firm in her message,” said luncheon attendee Tonie Hansen.

Blasey-Ford’s remarks lasted just a few minutes, but had the 1,400 guests in attendance captivated. While she blazed a trail through Washington’s power-elite, the keynote speaker blazed a trail that helped change the country.

Because of Trump, American Federation of Teachers union lost 76,000 members and $18M in dues revenue

Founded in Chicago in 1916, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is the second largest teacher’s labor union in America, the largest being the National Education Association (NEA). 

Members’ dues underwrite much of AFT’s political activities.

Since 1980, AFT and the NEA have contributed nearly $57.4 million to federal campaigns, an amount that is about 30% higher than any single corporation or other union. About 95% of political donations from teachers unions have gone to Democrats:

  • In 2008, AFT donated $1,997,375.00 to the presidential campaign of Barack Obama, and $1,784,808.59 to the campaign of Hillary Clinton.
  • The AFT endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race — Hillary and AFT president Randi Weingarten are longtime friends. Some AFT members felt the endorsement did not reflect the wishes of rank-and-file AFT members because they supported socialist Bernie Sanders.

According to Department of Labor filings, Weingarten, 61, earned nearly $560,000 in total compensation during the 2013-2014 school year.

On June 27, 2018, in a landmark but narrow 5:4 decision in Janus v. AFSCME, the Supreme Court ruled that public sector union dues violate the First Amendment by compelling nonmembers to “subsidize private speech on matters of substantial public concern”. Unions will, subsequently, need to gain the affirmative consent of individual teachers before enrolling them in the AFT and NEA.

The Supreme Court’s Janus ruling led directly to the cancellation of membership by a substantial portion of teachers in the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).

Sean Higgins reports for Washington Examiner, Oct. 9, 2019, on the effects of the Supreme Court’s Janus v. AFSCME ruling in the year since:

  • AFT lost 76,000 members and $18 million in dues revenue.
  • AFT membership declined 4% to 1.7 million members, and would have declined even more if AFT had not made a grassroots outreach to build up its membership by adding 8,000 full-time teachers and 8,000 retiree members.
  • In a recent Labor Department filing, AFT reported having lost some  82,000 “agency fee” payers — from more than 85,000 the previous year to just 3,000. Agency fee payers are people who are not members of a union but are covered by a collective bargaining contract which requires them to pay a union a regular fee. The Supreme Court’s Janus ruling, however, means agency fee payers no longer are required to pay a fee to the AFT. The remaining agency fee payers are all at private-sector schools, because the Janus ruling doesn’t cover private-sector employment.

Conservatives must remember this when you find yourself unhappy with President Trump:

The narrow majority of five justices are Alito, Roberts, Kennedy, Thomas, and Gorsuch.

The landmark Janus v. AFSCME ruling and the American Federation of Teachers’ loss of members and $18 million in revenue were made possible entirely because of President Trump’s nomination and the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch, who replaced the late Justice Antonin Scalia, joined the four justices (Alito, Roberts, Kennedy and Thomas) in the majority ruling.

New book on Kavanaugh by NYT reporters bombs

Do you remember that new book on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh which made new sexual assault charges, but were almost immediately debunked when friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the attack?

The book, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, is co-authored by two New York Times reporters, Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly. Published by Portfolio on Sept. 17, 2019, the book was immediately panned by critics, and sales of the book have crashed.

Ha, ha, ha, ha!

Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner, Oct. 4, 2019, that although the book was expected to sell at least 10,000-12,000 in the first two weeks, thereby propelling it onto the New York Times’ bestseller hardcover list, it has sold about a third of that in the first two weeks — which means 3,300 to 4,000 copies.

According to a publishing source’s latest BookScan numbers, which account for about 80% of sales, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh‘s number is 3,120. The source said: “If you add in ebooks — they may have sold a total of 4,000. That’s one of the most epic bombs in political publishing over the past decade.

Another publishing source who has handled several Washington-related nonfiction works said the pushback by conservatives and supporters of President Trump and Kavanaugh was harsh and hurt sales.

By comparison, another Kavanaugh book,Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, which details the Democratic war on the Trump nominee, has sold 60,000 books and a total of 100,000 copies since its debut on July 9, 2019. It was written by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino and published by Regnery.

As of today, Amazon ranks The Education of Brett Kavanaugh #9,041. The average rating by 47 customers is 3.2 out of 5.

Below are some of the reviews that gave the book a one-star rating:

“I did not vote for Trump in 2016, and as an independent I am far more interested in factual truth than which party “wins.” … This book is very disappointing. The author’s bias is evident…. If you are looking for biased reinforcement that Kavanuagh is ‘bad’ with little concern for actual truth and facts, this book is for you.” 

Already busted for lies…nothing but an attempted SMEAR CAMPAIGN. These two women who write for the New York Times fabricated a story and hope to CASH IN. Hopefully good Americans don’t allow it and they are sued. It is nothing but a HIT PIECE…in fact they knew subject was not true and wrote it anyway. That is call LIBEL. They went about writing an investigation piece and came up empty so they tried to make it into something it wasn’t…they claim there are 7 witnesses to the penis in Ramirez’s hand, but these people do not recall or it is hearsay, or they are anonymous, or they work for the CLINTONS… PURE FANTASY COOKED UP IN THE LIBERAL BRAIN.

So far, there is no proof that Kavanaugh did any of the things he was accused of (other than drinking beer). NO PROOF. Do we want to become the country where anybody can accuse anybody of anything without witnesses or proof and destroy their career? Makes no difference whether you like him or not, whether you believe the women or not – there needs to be credible witnesses AND PROOF. If one thinks the FBI takes sides, the side they take is liberal, not conservative, and they thoroughly investigated these accusations and found NO PROOF, no credible witnesses. Remember, you might be next! This is a very slippery slope!

Justice Ginsburg received treatment at hospital that received millions of dollars from David Koch

Last week it was announced that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent another round of radiation treatment for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas.

According to Daily Mail:

“The 86-year-old underwent three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital after a routine blood test led to the discovery of a localized malignant tumor last month, the U.S. Supreme Court announced on Friday.

The tumor was ‘treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere’, and no further treatment is needed at this time, the statement said.”

Last week David Koch passed away and the left were hell bent on defaming him in the media and on Twitter. Libtard Bette Midler was one of those who promoted the “the “terrifying legacy of David Koch.”

Others said:

“David Koch had a dream, which was to make things easier for himself and a few friends while also making things significantly worse for everyone else on the planet.”

“In lieu of flowers, the family of David Koch requests that mourners simply purchase a Republican politician.”

“THEY CORRUPT AND POLLUTE OUR WORLD, THEN THEY DO DIE AND LEAVE THIER MESS FOR US TO DEAL WITH.”

“If you can only speak ill of the dead, come sit by me. Crediting Ms. Parker and, of course, the disastrous anti-human force that was David Koch.”

“You have all that money, but it cannot change the ending. Do good in the world with your time here on it. That is all I will say.”
——————————-

According to Wikipedia, David Koch donated $180 million to Memorial Sloan Kettering for cancer research.

I find it ironic that progressives who screamed about the evil “republican” David Koch probably don’t realize that their hero RBG received treatment at the very hospital which received generous donations from a man who was actually on their side.

No good deed goes unpunished.

ICE will begin deporting 1M illegal aliens with court orders to leave the US

I’ve followed the career of Ken Cuccinelli, 50, a genuine conservative who was the attorney general of the state of Virginia (2010-2014) and before that, a Virginia state senator (2002-2010). In 2013, he lost the Virginia gubernatorial election to Clinton-crony Demonrat Terry McAuliffe, by just 2.5% (56,435 votes).

In 2016, in an effort to get Hillary Clinton elected president, Gov. McAuliffe restored voting and other civil rights to thousands of convicted felons, which enabled pedophile and white supremacist Nathan Larson to run for Congress as an Independent. Larson campaigned on a platform that advocated the legalization of child porn and incest.

But I had not known that a month ago, President Trump appointed Cuccinelli as acting Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that administers the United States’ naturalization and immigration system. USCIS is a successor to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), which was dissolved in 2002 and replaced by three components within the DHS: USCIS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Tim Pearce reports for the Washington Examiner that on July 7, 2019, Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli said about 1 million “illegal immigrants” have already received court orders to leave the country, and that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, who are already hundreds of thousands of deportations behind schedule, will begin deporting them later this week.

Cuccinelli appeared on CBS Face the Nation to defend the ICE deportations, which the outlaw-enabling and post-birth abortion Left criticize as inhumane raids against immigrant families.

Cuccinelli said ICE is obligated “to go and find, detain, and then deport the approximately 1 million people who have final removal orders. [These migrants] have been all the way through the due process and have final removal order. The pool of those with final removal orders is enormous. [ICE officers] have been interfered with, effectively, and held up by the politics of Washington to a certain extent. They’re looking forward to just getting back to doing their job.”

Cuccinelli said ICE will deport illegal immigrants with court orders on a rolling basis, beginning with a few thousand.

Meanwhile, Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner that President Trump plans to have named 150 federal judges by the end of this year, boosting the total number of federal judges to some 250 in Trump’s first presidential term.

Since the United States has a total of 870 federal judges in the Supreme Court, district courts, courts of appeals, and the U.S. Court of International Trade, this means President Trump is on a pace to fill 30% of America’s federal judges, which will be “a historic legacy” in the conservative movement to restore America.

Atheist loses lawsuit to remove ‘In God We Trust’ from U.S. currency

A piece of good news, at last, in the contemporary American wasteland.

Do you remember a man named Michael Newdow?

Newdow, 65, is the Californian atheist who’s been jamming the courts with lawsuits.

Newdow’s most recent lawsuit was to have “In God We Trust” removed from U.S. currency on the grounds that the motto is a government endorsement of religion and so violates the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment. Last year, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Newdow — the judges found that the motto on currency “comports with early understandings of the Establishment Clause” and did not coerce people into practicing a religion.

See DCG’s “Lawsuit demands US remove ‘In God We Trust’ from money“.

“In God We Trust” was first put on an American coin in 1864, and added to both coins and paper bills in 1955. A year after, in 1956, President Dwight Eisenhower signed a law making the phrase the national motto.

Leah Klett reports for Christian Post, citing Fox News, that on June 10, 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected, without comment, Newdow’s appeal.

In 2013, Newdow had partnered with the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation to sue the U.S. Treasury over the motto on currency. In his petition to the Supreme Court, Nedow, a lawyer whose clients are other atheists, had argued that:

  • The government violated his clients’ “sincere religious belief” that there is no God and turned them into “political outsiders” by placing the phrase “In God We Trust” on their money.
  • The placement of “In God We Trust” on money “has real effects on real children” and subjects atheist children to the same sufferings  historically endured by black children as “second class citizens”.

In the words of Newdow’s petition, which refers to “God” as “G-d” — a Jewish practice:

Petitioners are atheists. As such, they fervidly disagree with the religious idea that people should trust in G-d. On the contrary, their sincere religious belief is that trusting in any G-d is misguided. Defendants have conditioned receipt of the important benefit of using the nation’s sole ‘legal tender’ upon conduct proscribed by Petitioners’ atheism (i.e., upon Petitioners’ personally bearing – and proselytizing – a religious message that is directly contrary to the central idea that underlies their religious belief system).

Unless this Court ends the flagrant governmental preference for belief in G-d (and the implicit concomitant denigration of Atheism), the organizations, adults and children bringing this case will spend the rest of their lives – as they have spent their lives so far – as secondclass citizens.

Mat Staver, founder and chairman of religious liberty law firm Liberty Counsel, praised the court’s rejection of Newdow’s petition: “Our national motto ‘In God We Trust’ has been on all U.S. currency for more than 60 years and it will remain there, despite ridiculous attempts by atheists to remove it.”

Newdow’s past litigation includes:

  • Several failed litigation challenges against the “under God” phrase in the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance. In 2004, after suing for the removal of “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance, his case was heard by the U.S. Supreme Court. But the court did not decide on the merits of the case but instead said Newdow had no standing to sue. See my post, “‘Under God’ stays in Pledge of Allegiance“.
  • Attempts to stop prayers being read at the inauguration of Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
  • Attempts to prevent government leaders from saying the phrase “So help me God” in the 2009, 2013, and 2017 presidential inaugurations.

Libtards who confronted Jeff Flake at Kavanaugh confirmation cheered at award event

A participation award for Gallagher and Archila/Getty Images

All they got was a hammer. We got SCJ Kavanaugh. I’d say we got the better deal.

From MSN: Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila – the two protesters who famously confronted then-Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) in an elevator about his support of Justice Brett Kavanaugh – receiving a standing ovation as they accepted honors at the 10th annual Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards in New York.

The pair made headlines in September for their filmed confrontation with Flake in an elevator at the Capitol when he was on his way to a Senate Judiciary Committee vote to advance Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination to the Senate floor.

“When we showed up on that day, and I met Maria half an hour before that interaction, I did not expect to see Sen. Flake, and that we would hold him in the elevator for five minutes,” Archila told the crowd Friday at the ceremony Borough of Manhattan Community College.

Archila – the co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy who attended the State of the Union address as a guest of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in February – praised Gallagher, saying, the moment with Flake showed “what it’s like to be a real New Yorker.”

Before the elevator encounter, Flake had announced that he would support Kavanaugh. After it, he called for a one-week delay in a Senate floor vote to allow for an FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against the judge.

Flake ultimately voted to confirm Kavanaugh, who now sits on the Supreme Court.

Also among the honorees at the awards show: Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Ndaba Mandela, former model and FEED founder Lauren Bush Lauren, and 8-year-old Nigerian refugee and chess prodigy Tanitoluwa “Tani” Adewumi.

Lock him up: Ex-DC demorat staffer admits to doxing republicans, threatening witness

The “democratic political professional student” worked for U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and previously worked for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA). He also previously worked or was an intern with the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

As reported by NY Post: A former Democratic congressional staffer pleaded guilty Friday to federal charges after he posted leaked personal information about Republican senators on Wikipedia, then threatened a witness who caught him.

Jackson Cosko, 27, of the District of Columbia, pleaded guilty to five offenses related to his “doxing” the senators — uploading their personal information online — including computer fraud, making public restricted personal information, witness tampering and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors said he went after the lawmakers after one senator fired him and he got upset with the others while watching testimony on sexual assault allegations during Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

His targets included GOP Senate Judiciary Committee members Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch, as well as Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul.

He faces nearly five years in prison when he is sentenced June 13.

Peace Cross Case Heads to US Supreme Court – Why Much More Than One Cross Is on the Line

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case about whether a the nearly 100-year-old, cross-shaped war memorial in Maryland known as Peace Cross violates the Constitution because is on government property. The case of the monument, located in the Bladensburg community of Prince George’s County, could impact hundreds of similar monuments nationwide.

First Liberty Institute is defending the cross. One of its lawyers, Jeremy Dys, told CBN News, “This case is very important for a variety of reasons. Because this area of the law is right now – as Justice (Clarence) Thomas has said – in hopeless disarray. And so there’s really needing some clarity for this.”

The legal team  believes this could be the most crucial religious liberty case the Supreme Court handles this term. That’s because if the high court eventually decides this cross has to go, it could affect thousands of other crosses, including crosses on all federal cemeteries such as  the national cometary at Arlington.

But if the justices make a broad ruling favoring the cross and other objects like it, it could put an end to judges and bureaucrats deciding – somewhat haphazardly – if a religious symbol or display is too religious or secular enough to be left alone by secular authorities.

That possibility has opponents of the cross worried about the court setting a precedent that could counter future efforts to eradicate religious symbols–especially Christian symbols– from public display.

The District of Columbia-based American Humanist Association has led the challenge against the monument. The organization and three area residents sued Maryland officials in 2014 in an attempt to have the monument torn down. They say that the cross “discriminates against patriotic soldiers who are not Christian, sending a callous message to non-Christians that Christians are worthy of veneration while they may as well be forgotten.” And they point out that other nearby memorials are smaller and across the street from the cross.

One of the people who brought the original case against the cross – Steven Lowe of the American Humanist Association – told CBN News, “The government on this piece of property is favoring a religion with this huge symbol. When you come across the bridge or approach it from any of the highways, you see nothing but this huge Christian cross.”

Journalist Renee Green spoke with Lowe and other cross opponents for her documentary “Save the Peace Cross.” In it, United Coalition of Reason officer Fred Edwords stated, “It gives the impression of Christianity and nothing else. And it gives the impression of government endorsement of Christianity.”

And Lowe told Green, “The existence of a memorial on public land is not a problem. It is just the use of the Christian cross as part of that memorial that we find contrary to the First Amendment and separation of church and state.”

Edwords added, “It looks for all the world like, ‘Okay, this is either the state of Maryland or the city of Bladensburg endorsing one religion.'”

In the suit against the cross, one atheist said he was traumatized driving by it. Green appears on camera in her documentary to point out that many telephone poles are in the shape of a cross.

“If the plaintiffs win this lawsuit, will all the telephone poles need to be modified?” Green asks, tongue-in-cheek. She adds, “I just hope they’re not traumatized by telephone poles while driving.”

The Peace Cross has drawn the support of Maryland’s governor and senators. Over the summer the state of Maryland filed an amicus brief in support of the petition to the Supreme Court, and Gov. Larry Hogan said the state was “determined to fight all the way to the highest court in the land to keep it standing tall and proud.”

The Peace Cross was completed in 1925, and it honors 49 men from the surrounding county who died in World War I. A plaque on the cross’ base lists the names of those soldiers, and both faces of the cross have a circle with the symbol of the American Legion, the veterans organization that helped raise money to build it.

Today, responsibility for the cross falls to a Maryland parks commission that took over ownership and maintenance of it in 1961 because of traffic safety concerns.

John Podesta sent an assassination email 3 days before suspicious death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

Since Scalia’s body was cremated 24 hours after death, what was in the coffin?

It is more than three years since the suspicious death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

We are told that on February 13, 2016, Scalia suddenly died in his sleep in his room in Cibolo Creek Ranch, a 1,700-acre ranch and luxury hotel in west Texas, only 15 miles from the US-Mexico border. To this day, Scalia’s death is shrouded in mystery. The things “that don’t fit together” include the following:

Adding to the mystery surrounding Scalia’s death is an email by John Podesta, the longtime Democrat operative who was the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. Dated just three days before Scalia’s death, the email made mention of “wet work” — a slang term of spooks which means assassination of a public figure.

From True Pundit:

True Pundit personnel, who have served in varying intelligence capacities and agencies for the United States, were floored this morning when combing the Wikileaks database of John Podesta emails.

Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in a Feb. 9, 2016 email makes reference to an assassination. Using the term “wet work,” Podesta sent a cryptic email to Democratic strategist and heavyweight consultant Steve Elmendorf. The term wet work is an intelligence slang term with Russian roots. Defined it means to assassinate a public figure, diplomat or someone of political note.

Elmendorf replied to Podesta’s mysterious reference: “I am all in Sounds like it will be a bad nite, we all need to buckle up and double down”

We do not want to go down the conspiracy rabbit hole here based on one or two comments. However, Podesta’s email was sent on a Tuesday. By Friday, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Antonin Scalia was found dead at a remote Texas resort. To say Scalia’s death was suspicious is putting it mildly.

  • No autopsy
  • No medical examiner on site to decipher cause of death
  • No U.S. Marshal protection detail accompanying Scalia
  • No functioning CCTV cameras on day of death
  • Scalia found clothed on bed with pillow over face
  • Scalia’s body mysteriously cremated before it could be examined
  • Resort owner large Obama contributor
  • And the list goes on and on

We are not alleging Podesta or Elmendorf played a role in Scalia’s death. That is a large leap and making such a leap is how news sites get a reputation for spreading conspiracy theories. But neither are doing themselves any favors by discussing the topic via email either. And the timing cannot be ignored, even by partisan detectives. Simply put: The optics look very bad.

When public officials and Beltway insiders, especially those working for Hillary Clinton, start and correspond to an assassination-themed email thread, they open themselves up wide for criticisms. Likewise this is the definition of poor judgment by both parties, discussing anything related, jokingly or not, to assassination. Podesta, after all, is running a campaign for the presidency of the United States and therefore his communications are held to a higher standard. And in a functioning Republic where law and order prevail, the FBI would want some answers too to the questions were are posing here. Any competent investigator would, based on the troubling timing alone. But, not Director James Comey’s FBI. Not this FBI.

Here’s the link to the Podesta email on Wikileaks. Below is a screenshot I took of the email:
