President Trump said Sunday he’s considering making a change to as many as five Cabinet positions amid speculation that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House chief of staff John Kelly could depart imminently.

Trump: “I have three or four or five positions that I’m thinking about. Of that, maybe it’s going to end up being two. But I need flexibility.

On DHS Nielsen:

I like her very much, I respect her very much, I’d like her to be much together on the border. Much tougher. Period.

On COS Kelly:

We get along well. There are certain things I love what he does, and there are certain things I don’t like that he does that aren’t his strength.

I haven’t even thought about John in terms of this. But John at some point is going to want to move on.

Jeff Sessions submitted his resignation as attorney general the day after the midterm elections.

It was a long time coming.

Now, the top two candidates to replace Sessions are big names in conservative circles.

From Newsmax:

President Donald Trump may tap former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie or Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions, CNN reports.

[…]

When [Fox News host Laura] Ingraham brought up Christie, diGenova said he “would be fine. He’s experienced, he’s smart, he’s intelligent. He would have the full confidence of the president of the United States, which is to me, what was missing from the relationship with Jeff Sessions. The president is entitled to have a full-time attorney general and Christie could fulfill that role very nicely.”

It is also being reported that a woman considered for AG is a former colleague of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

From Fox News:

President Trump is considering a retired federal appeals court judge who also served on the California Supreme Court as the next U.S. attorney general following the Wednesday resignation of Jeff Sessions, according to reports.

Janice Rogers Brown, who is African-American and well-liked in conservative circles, served alongside Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and spoke to the White House about the job in recent weeks, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Democrats will have a field day if Trump chooses Brown.

They’ll find a way to make it a big issue.

Others potentially being considered for AG?

-Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (who just lost his bid for governor).

-Retiring Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

-Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar.

-Former Attorney General William P. Barr.

-Trump personal attorney (and former NYC Mayor) Rudy Giuliani.

When women make up stories of sexual assault in order to destroy the lives of men with whom they disagree, all they’re doing is hurting the arguments for women who have actually been abused.

Take this woman, for example. She accused then-SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

She now admits she made up the whole story because she didn’t want Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court justice.

Here’s the letter released by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA):

On September 25, 2018, staffers for Senator Harris, a Committee member, referred an undated handwritten letter to Committee investigators that her California office had received signed under the alias “Jane Doe” from Oceanside, California.

The letter contained highly graphic sexual-assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh. The anonymous accuser alleged that Justice Kavanaugh and a friend had raped her “several times each” in the backseat of a car. In addition to being from an anonymous accuser, the letter listed no return address, failed to provide any timeframe, and failed to provide any location — beyond an automobile — in which these alleged incidents took place.

Committee investigators began investigating Ms. Munro-Leighton’s allegations. Given her relatively unique name, Committee investigators were able to use open-source research to locate Ms. Munro-Leighton and determine that she: (1) is a left-wing activist; (2) is decades older than Judge Kavanaugh; and (3) lives in neither the Washington DC area nor California, but in Kentucky.

Continued:

Under questioning by Committee investigators, Ms. Munro-Leighton admitted, contrary to her prior claims, that she had not been sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh and was not the author of the original “Jane Doe” letter. When directly asked by Committee investigators if she was, as she had claimed, the “Jane Doe” from Oceanside California who had sent the letter to Senator Harris, she admitted: “No, no, no. I did that as a way to grab attention. I am not Jane Doe . . . but I did read Jane Doe’s letter. I read the transcript of the call to your Committee. . . . I saw it online. It was news.”

She further confessed to Committee investigators that (1) she “just wanted to get attention”; (2) “it was a tactic”; and (3) “that was just a ploy.” She told Committee investigators that she had called Congress multiple times during the Kavanaugh hearing process – including prior to the time Dr. Ford’s allegations surfaced – to oppose his nomination. Regarding the false sexual-assault allegation she made via her email to the Committee, she said: “I was angry, and I sent it out.”

When asked by Committee investigators whether she had ever met Judge Kavanaugh, she said: “Oh Lord, no.”

In short, during the Committee’s time-sensitive investigation of allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, Ms. Munro-Leighton submitted a fabricated allegation, which diverted Committee resources. When questioned by Committee investigators she admitted it was false, a “ploy,” and a “tactic.” She was opposed to Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Virginia Democrats Take A Step Back From Gun Control Plan After Receiving Major Backlash From Gun Owners

Published

on

Democrats in the state of Virginia have discovered that a great many folks who make up their constituency are supporters of the Second Amendment right to bear arms after they received massive backlash from gun owners after unveiling their gun control plan. Now, in light of the all the criticism, Democrats in the state have decided to take a step back from the proposal. Check out the details from TheBlaze: Democrats will assume control of the Virginia General Assembly next year, and lawmakers quickly began submitting gun control bills that previously had little-to-no chance of passage. Gun-rights advocates statewide responded by forming “sanctuary” counties in which enforcement of new gun control laws would be de-emphasized or neglected altogether. Monday, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam and incoming Senate Majority Leader Dick Saslaw said they were adding a “grandfather clause” into the proposed assault weapon ban, which would allow gun owners to keep weapons under the policy that were already legally owned — as long as they register them. “I’m not going to lock up a large part of Virginia,” Saslaw told the Virginia Mercury, acknowledging that a grandfather clause would “make sense.” Gun-rights activists in Virginia are not letting their guard down after what seems like a victory, being well aware of the fact that the left will keep pushing for further restrictions on the Second Amendment. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League said, “We’ve been down this compromise road and their version of a compromise is they never give up anything. We are expected to give up something every time and we’re not doing it anymore. I think gun owners are tired of this and they’re gonna stand up and fight this stuff.”

President Trump Set To Create New Executive Order To Protect Jews On College Campuses

Published

on

President Trump has decided to take action against the rampant anti-Semitism that is rising up on college campuses across the country by signing an executive order designed to protect Jews on college campuses. The order will redefine Jews as more than a religious class, making them a nationality or ethnic group according to a new report that has been published by the Washington Post. Here are more details from TheBlaze: The updated classification will have a significant impact, allowing the government to consider anti-Semitic discrimination a violation of the Civil Rights Act. Specifically, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and national origin. “There’s been a lot of unclarity surrounding the application of Title VI to Jewishness, basically, because of a question of about whether Jewishness is primarily a religion — in which case Title VI would not apply to anti-Semitic discrimination — or whether it’s a race or national origin. This EO will clarify that Title VI applies to anti-Semitism,” an administration official told reporters Tuesday, according to the Post. The New York Times reported that Trump decided to take action because Congress has long stalled bipartisan legislation meant to combat the problem. “Today’s executive order will have a real, positive impact in protecting Jewish college students from anti-Semitism,” Republican Jewish Coalition national chairman Norm Coleman told the Washington Free Beacon. The Post went on to report that the executive order mandates that the Department of Education use the definition of anti-Semitism created by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. That particular definition includes a bit that calls out folks who consider the existence of a State of Israel to be a racist endeavor, something that critics of the executive order have said will stifle the free speech of Palestinian activists who might desire…
