NYT smears Nikki Haley over
Obama´s $53,000 UN curtains purchase

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Lacking a catch of late, the New York Times decided to pull a Scott Pruitt on United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, accusing her of being Extravagance Woman, a regular Stateside Imelda, based on a $53,000 purchase of customized and mechanized curtains for her United Nations apartment. It´s got more than a whiff of the jobs they did on former EPA Director Scott Pruitt for his first-class airfare, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Tom Price for his chartered flights, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke for his office doors, Housing and Urban Development

In its bid to Get Trump, the NYT falls flat on its face again.

They purposely avoid verification because they don´t care if it´s true or not. What´s the worst thing that happens when they are wrong? The people outside the bubble have another data point to reinforce what they already know and people within the leftist bubble won´t ever find out that they have been lied to, again.

Either the Slimes thinks WE are incredibly stupid that we might believe this or they ARE incredibly stupid to try such a transparent scam. OR they KNOW that their readership IS incredibly gullible and stupid.

It must be heady to be a senior executive at Google, the fabulously profitable king of Silicon Valley, and the biggest source of information in the world. Tucker Carlson (below) calls it “the most powerful company in the history of the world[i].” Google can control what information becomes available to those searching for it, so it is not an exaggeration to suggest that it can heavily influence voting behavior, and therefore influence decision-makers in democratically-elected governments.

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.

Democrats´ Big Lie About

Across the U.S., Democratic campaign ads are telling voters a big lie. Dems are falsely claiming they´re protecting people with pre-existing medical conditions and warning that Republicans will take that protection away. The ads would have you believe Obamacare is the only way to protect people with pre-existing conditions. That´s false, and the outcome of the midterm elections could turn on this falsehood. The Democratic super PAC allied with Senator Chuck Schumer is behind many ads, including one targeting Republican Josh Hawley, who is challenging Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, in a tight race.

OAS Secretary-General, Luis Almagro, should “prepare his rifle” if he wants to invade his country, Maduro during a press conference in Caracas on Tuesday, adding that “we are waiting for you here.” The Venezuelan leader called Almagro a “piece of trash” belonging to the “dump of history.”

Back in the Occupy days, "free education for all" was the daily socialist battle cry. And sure enough, New York´s Gov. Andrew Cuomo eventually handed it to them in a much ballyhooed rollout, of free scholarships to all New York residents, to any state school, in 2017. Free stuff! The protestors won! Here´s what NBC reported at the time: New York will be the only state in the country to offer universal public college tuition coverage for working- and middle-class residents after the program was included in the budget package approved Sunday night.

The latest on the Supreme Court confirmation saga of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a doozy, according to this headline from the Washington Post: Woman who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault wants FBI to investigate incident before she testifies to Senate That´s because it represents yet another effort to move the goal posts in wrapping up this nomination for the Supreme Court. And they´ve done that a lot, something like four times. None of us are dumb. We all know that the Democrats´ plan is to run the clock on the nomination and hope the Senate shifts

Suppose that you start college with a keen interest in physics, and you quickly discover that almost all members of the physics department are Democrats. Would you think that something is wrong? Would your answer be different if your favorite subject is music, chemistry, computer science, anthropology or sociology? In recent years, concern has grown over what many people see as a left-of-center political bias at colleges and universities. A few months ago, Mitchell Langbert, an associate professor of business at Brooklyn College, published a study of the political affiliations of faculty members at 51 of the 66 liberal-arts colleges

A pack of street dogs were discovered fighting over a discarded human head late last week in Tijuana. Tijuana Municipal Police were summoned to colonia Amparo Sanchez last Thursday after citizens observed a pack of street dogs fighting over a severed human head presumably dumped there. Residents reported the incident at approximately 6:30 pm, according to local media. Police were later able to secure the head and handed the scene over to the forensic medical services team from the state attorney General’s office. No information was available on the identity of the victim, nor were other remains located.

American popular culture is dominant worldwide. Many people outside the U.S. have heard about Colin Kaepernick and his anthem protest. Lower-class young men in the Middle East like to wear track suits and other sports gear with logos. They see traditional garb as dowdy, while the tailored white thobe of the Gulf Arabs represents a different social stratum. Track suits are comfortable, sleek, and classy. Fashionistas will disagree, but there´s a kind of formality in a track suit.

Amazing everyone, and not in a good way, Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro has been Instagrammed pigging out on a big prime steak dinner by a Turkish celebrity chef famous for serving $275 meat plates at the Miami version of his restaurant empire. Maduro was Instagrammed dining from Istanbul. Which makes quite an impression as he bears responsibility for a nation where the locals are forced to dine on spoiled meat, zoo animals, rats, and family pets, if they can get anything at all, and who otherwise fight with machetes over garbage scraps to avoid starvation.

You´d think Democrats would have learned their lesson about the electoral hazards of denigrating large numbers of voters. Hillary Clinton should have with her "deplorables" descriptor about Donald Trump´s voters. She didn´t, even after the example of the GOP´s Mitt Romney, who lost his election with his off-the-record "47%" remark. Now here comes Joe Biden. Sure enough, he just came out denouncing President Trump´s voters again, this time calling them the "dregs of society" to a gay special interest group that opposes Trump on Saturday.

Since high school keg parties at the elite prep schools attended by Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey are now a matter of consuming interest to the Democrat-media complex, it is perhaps telling that the high school yearbooks of Holton Arms, the school attended by Blasey, have been scrubbed from the web. The blog Cult of the First Amendment says: On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them.

Eviscerating Kavanaugh: Sen. Feinstein,

Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind: Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein? Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.

In an email to committee staffers obtained by CBS News, Ford´s lawyer Debra Katz wrote that Ford "wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.

Christine Blasey Ford´s allegation that Brett Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her when they were teens has thrown his Supreme Court nomination into doubt. But as senators spar over the terms for a new hearing which may or may not happen, inconsistencies in the story have emerged that could embolden Kavanaugh´s defenders. (Snip) "There are an awful lot of questions, inconsistencies, gaps, and that´s why to be fair to both, we need to know what happened," Maine Sen.

Christine Blasey Ford´s legal team has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to certain terms before she sits down for a potential interview over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago, two sources told Fox News on Thursday night. Among the terms: Only members of the committee -- no lawyers -- can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford´s testimony. The requests, some of which appeared to be negotiable, capped a whirlwind

Giving Christine Blasey Ford the opportunity to testify about her unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is, somehow, silencing her, Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (R-NY) declared Wednesday night. Refusing to launch an FBI investigation into Ford’s claims is also “silencing her,” Sen. Gillibrand said in a tweet: “Denying Dr. Ford an FBI investigation is silencing her. Forcing her into a sham hearing is silencing her. And pushing through Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation is silencing her.” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has offered Ford four options: A public hearing; A private hearing; A public staff interview;

Snochia Moseley, 26, was at breaking point when she killed three people and herself in a shooting at a Rite Aid warehouse on Thursday, friends say. Moseley opened fire at her workplace at 9.06am, after arriving at the distribution facility in Enterprise Business Park. She shot outside the building, before continuing her rampage inside. Friend Toni Coley, who has known the woman since high school, told the Baltimore Sun Moseley often felt alienated, but she ´wasn’t a monster, wasn’t an angry person´. ´I just believe this was emotional distress. If she did this, it was her last straw,´ she said.

Paul (and Senator Orrin Hatch) has already mentioned the possibility that Dr. Ford’s allegation of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh may be a case of mistaken identity, based in part on Ed Whelan’s cryptic tweets that Kavanaugh is going to be fully exonerated. This has set off of firestorm of rumors and expectations. Whalen has just now (6 pm eastern time) provided one specific scenario of this on Twitter, offering up a specific name (though careful to note that he makes no allegation of implication that the other person, Chris Garrett, assaulted Ford as claimed).

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) says that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who came forward with a sexual assault accusation against Brett Kavanaugh, should not be "bullied" into testifying Monday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee without an FBI investigation being performed. In an interview with CNN, the Democratic senator says that committee members are bullying Ford by calling for her testimony without the support of corroborating witnesses or an FBI investigation into the credibility of her claim. "I don´t think she should be bullied into this scenario, where it´s a ´he-said, she-said´ when many of the committee members
