Bombshell: Christine Blasey Ford’s Hidden High School Social Life

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?

Democrats Have Nothing Left But Violence And Chaos To Defeat Brett Kavanaugh

Democrats, by their tactics in opposing Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, have gone way beyond what has been, even for them, considered to be the base level of savagery and ruthlessness established in the Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas hearings.

Democrats Ruthlessly Destroy Brett Kavanaugh

Judicial Watch Asks Federal Court to Reopen Lawsuit Seeking Information on Top Clinton Aide

Citing misconduct and misrepresentation by Hillary Clinton and the State Department, and following up on revelations of the secret email accounts created by Secretary Clinton and other top State Department officials, Judicial Watch announced that it has asked a federal court to reopen a closed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case that sought records about Huma Abedin, who had been Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary State Hillary Clinton.
