Kavanaugh Vote Count Close: Call Senators Today

Four Republican Senators have yet to clearly commit to vote for Judge Kavanaugh: Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska (202-224-6665) and Susan Collins of Maine (202-224-2523) are the top priorities. While Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona (202-224-4521) and Ben Sasse of Nebraska (202-224-4224) need firming up.

Conservatives Concerned About Anti-Kavanaugh Violence to Block Senate Vote

A new FedUp PAC poll found a solid majority of 73.8% agree that “the radical Democrats opposing Kavanaugh will do anything to stop him, and will turn to violence if that is the only way to prevent a Senate vote to confirm him.”

The Kavanaugh Hearing: A Democrat Campaign Circus

Over the course of the long journey to 2020, the Kavanaugh hearings were just one small step toward the Democratic presidential nomination and Booker and Harris, while they often looked like clowns to conservatives, put on the show that the new Far Left Democratic Party’s primary voters crave.

Why Not Just Bomb Our Cities, Senator?

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

Rent control dramatically limits the supply of new housing units by discouraging people from building new apartments and punishing landlords for offering them for rent by limiting the price they can charge. But if you throw in government rent credits, the results on the housing stock will be even more extreme. California progressives have finally recognized the depth of the state’s housing crisis, as home prices and rents soar to obscene levels in the state’s most sought after urban areas, but their recognition of the problem comes with a price: they are likely to make things worse.

Bring It On Hillary

As much as Hillary Clinton may want a rematch, Democrats may not be ready for Hillary Version 3.0. A new Harvard CAPS/Harris June poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden beating her almost 2 to 1 among Democrats, even as the Party's feminist elite itch for a rematch with President Trump.

Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Unconstitutional “Protect Mueller” Bill

This isn’t about protecting the integrity of an investigation that long-ago jumped the rails of its original charge to investigate the non-existent collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. It is merely a Democratic campaign tactic to send a message that the Senate is willing to stand up to President Trump.

Sessions’ Asset Forfeiture Support Wrong, Hurts Police

Asset forfeiture without conviction has been described by conservative constitutionalist giant Justice Clarence Thomas as “policing for profit" while calling into question its constitutionality.

Run, Kamala, Run

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The growing chatter among Dems about Kamala Harris as a potential 2020 candidate is yet another illustration of the party’s lack of seriousness. At a time when it should be downplaying its image as an out-of-touch bi-coastal party, it deepens that image by pushing one more San Francisco radical forward. Who knows, maybe Harris can run with Pelosi.

The Democrats’ Successor to Hillary

Steven Greenhut, The American Spectator

Given Kamala Harris's embarrassing record as state AG and lack of rhetorical prowess, what’s the reason for the “extraordinarily high expectations” that have greeted Harris now that she’s been a U.S. senator for all of two days? It’s not like there’s a dearth of pabulum-speaking progressive hacks. Republicans should be encouraged if this is the best hitter so far on the Democrats’ farm team.

Top Conservatives Demand Hearings on IRS Privacy Allegations

David A. Patten, Newsmax

As if the IRS isn’t facing enough scrutiny, a dream team of conservative leaders is calling for congressional hearings into whether the IRS and the Obama administration allowed two state attorneys general to target non-profit organizations by requiring disclosure of their donor lists in return for permission to solicit donations in their respective states.

Conservative Leaders Demand Hearing On IRS Privacy Violations

Conservative leaders are fighting serious violations and evasions of the Internal Revenue Code by California Attorney General Kamala Harris and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Harris and Schneiderman have engaged in illegal disclosures of confidential donor names and addresses that a federal judge called a "pervasive, recurring pattern of uncontained Schedule B disclosures...".

Would Lois Lerner Make a Good Senator?

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, Daily Caller

Lois Lerner misused and abused the tax code as a political weapon. One of her comrades in lawlessness, California Attorney General Kamala Harris, now wants to be in the United State Senate, leaving behind underlings who could face jail for her acts and ambitions.

California AG Threatens Non-Profit Donors’ First Amendment Rights

Kathryn Watson, Daily Caller

California Attorney General Kamala Harris is being deluged with requests from non-profit officials to withdraw her “unconstitutional” demand for public disclosure of donor names because it creates a “back door” around the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United. “This is a back-door way these liberal Democrats to get around the Citizens United decision,” attorney Mark Fitzgibbons told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Supreme Court’s opportunity to tackle sinister trends on 1st Amendment

George F. Will, The Washington Post

The IRS scandal — the denial of essential tax-exempt status to conservative advocacy groups, thereby effectively suppressing the groups’ activities — demonstrates this: When government is empowered to regulate advocacy, it will be tempted to suppress some of it. 

Lois Lerner's 'Partners' and Her ‘Mini-Me’

Conservatives who now know about the lawless, arrogant ex-federal bureaucrat lawyer Lois Lerner may wish to know that her “farm team” meets at the Washington Marriott Georgetown October 5 – 7.

State Politicians and Bureaucrats Violate Rights & Attack ‘Nongovernmental Democracy’

Some regulators believe their "probable cause" required by the Fourth Amendment is merely that they are regulators.  And, when they are questioned about their actual legal authority and grounds, these regulators often turn arrogant and bullying instead of providing notice and transparency. The National Association of State Charity Officials (NASCO) could take a stand for transparency and constitutional government if it adopts resolutions proposed in this article by our colleague constitutional lawyer Mark J. Fitzgibbons.

You Wonder Why Americans Are Pissed Off

We Americans no longer live in a society where the law is applied equally and without political bias or intent – we now live in a strange oligarchy in which a self-appointed elite, starting with the President and going right down to judges, a state Attorney General and even local zoning officials, decides which laws apply to them and which laws they will follow.

NAACP v. Alabama for the 21st Century

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, Washington Examiner

Bullies with government power always seem to know how to be creative in censoring their critics, which is one reason why we have the First Amendment as part of our nation's fundamental and paramount law over government itself. California's Democrat Attorney General Kamala Harris is adding a new, extortionate twist to old tricks. She must be stopped.

Privacy Advocates Battle Ultra-Leftwing California AG

Ultra-leftwing California Attorney General Kamala Harris is demanding that nonprofits registering with her office to solicit contributions in her state file a partial list of their largest donors – an un-redacted copy of IRS Form 990 Schedule B. This is wrong for so many reasons, including violating the privacy and private rights of association of donors, and the Center for Competitive Politics is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its challenge.
