WATCH: Sen. Tom Cotton has Bad News for Feinstein After Leaking Ford Letter

Published

on

Arkansas conservative Sen. Tom Cotton has stated that Dianne Feinstein’s office is going to be facing an investigation for leaking the letter penned by Christine Blasey Ford, which was a message that was supposed to be kept confidential.

Cotton made an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” where he told host John Dickerson that both Feinstein’s office and Ford’s attorneys in D.C. would be investigated for allegedly not informing her about Senate Judiciary Committee staffers who were willing to travel to California to interview her about the allegations she made against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“Those lawyers are going to face a D.C. bar investigation into their misconduct. Dianne Feinstein and her staff is going to face an investigation for why they leaked that. All of this could have been done discreetly, it happens hundreds of times … hundreds of times every year in the Judiciary Committee,” the Arkansas Republican said during his exchange with Dickerson.

Feinstein — who serves as the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee — received Ford’s letter in July, describing an alleged encounter with Kavanaugh. Despite requesting anonymity, the letter was leaked to the press in September. Feinstein has denied any involvement in the leak.

During her Senate testimony on Thursday, Ford revealed that she was unaware committee staffers had offered to meet her in private in California, a move that would have avoided a public hearing. Ford’s lawyers had apparently kept her unaware of the offer.

Cotton said Ford has been “victimized” by Democrats who have sought to exploit her allegations for political gain, many of whom had announced their opposition to President Donald Trump’s nominee before the allegations became public.

“They have betrayed her,” he stated on CBS. “She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.”

It’s pretty obvious that Ford is nothing more than a political pawn being used in a manipulative game of chess where Democrats hope beyond hope to be able to delay the confirmation vote for Kavanaugh until after the midterm elections.

They are clinging to the absurd notion that perhaps they will have a “blue wave” and be able to gain enough seats to overturn the vote and prevent Kavanaugh from being put on the bench.

Why so much concern about Kavanaugh? If he gets on the Supreme Court, there’s a remote possibility of returning abortion to a state issue, which means the vast majority of states would outlaw it. Yes, that’s right. Democrats want to keep baby murder legal and are willing to employ every dirty tactic in the book to see that it happens.

Social Media Giant Permanently Banishes Pro-Life News Outlet

So much for free speech.

1984

Our nation appears destined to fall into the clutches of a technological oligarchy, headed by the likes of Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, and there is very little that can be done about it. These two men, who run Twitter and Facebook, respectively, have been ruling their public forums with an iron fist, hiding behind the concept that their private status is a workaround for the First Amendment.  Their gargantuan reach and influence has made it possible for them to act with impunity, steering the narrative on any number of subjects, from Donald Trump to the wonder of maternity. The latest affront to free speech comes to us from Facebook, where a pro-life news organization has been completely banished. Facebook permanently banned LifeSiteNews, a popular pro-life news outlet, for publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.” As justification for unpublishing LifeSiteNews, Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, titled “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.” Facebook said they erase Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.” The site’s staff was livid. “This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” said LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” Roberts said. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots.” This is just the latest in a long line of Orwellian moves by these social media mavens, and may in fact be just another harbinger of something far more sinister to come.

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…
