The attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford, who recently accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault dating back to when they were teenagers, repeatedly tried to delay the date of her testimony, if she ever testified.

First she wanted it to wait until after and FBI investigation, that would have...

It’s too early to say how the Brett Kavanaugh nomination will end. Certainly, things are moving in his direction.

If accuser Christine Blasey Ford does not appear at Monday’s hearing, several of the wavering Republicans have signaled they want to go forward with a vote.

When The Washington Post broke the story that Christine Blasey Ford was the person who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of assault dating back to high school, there were several aspects of the WaPo story that struck me as particularly strange.

I told you Friday night that the attempt to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination with a post-hearing accusation was not over.

I expected a cameo appearance by Gloria Allred at a press conference this week with the accuser, but it didn’t take that long and it wasn’t Allred.

The Algemeiner “was founded in 1972 by famed journalist Gershon Jacobson as Der Algemeiner Journal and was originally published in Yiddish.” It’s now one of a core of “Jewish” publications, but unlike some leftist publications like The Forward, it’s more moderate in its politics.

Could you blame Brett Kavanaugh if he were angry at the malicious treatment he has received at the hands of Senate Democrats and their alt-left supporters?

Before the hearings even started, he was accused of hating women and children, of being a threat to the lives of non-whites...

We finally know what the allegation is against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that was the subject of Sen. Dianne Feinstein forwarding a secret letter to the FBI.

The FBI promptly announced that there would be no criminal investigation and that the letter had been made part of Kavanaugh’s background...

California Senator and likely presidential candidate Kamala Harris spread a misleadingly edited video of Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing testimony, falsely claiming Kavanaugh views birth control as the equivalent of abortion. From that, the argument goes, if Kavanaugh voted against Roe v. Wade, birth control would be banned.

At a Trump campaign rally in Louisville on March 1, 2016, anti-Trump protesters tried to disrupt the event, as they had done and would do elsewhere, like Chicago.

In Louisville, Trump called for the crowd to “get ’em out of here… Don’t hurt ’em, don’t hurt ’em.”

I should have known about brothers Thomas and Peter Langone.

They were from the place where I grew up, Roslyn, New York, just outside New York City on Long Island. They were just a couple of years younger, but I didn’t know them.

Like a drowning person, the opponents of Brett Kavanaugh are desperately trying to grab onto anything.

Having failed to rattle Kavanaugh, either through questioning by Democrat Senators or shouting by alt-left protesters in the hearing room, Democrats have taken to bold-faced lies, like that peddled by Kamala Harris about contraceptives. And bizarre...

The lesson of nominating Mitt Romney for president is that it doesn’t matter how objectively nice a Republican presidential candidate is, the media and Democrats will portray the person as a monster.

Romney was portrayed as someone whose main attributes were that he gave a woman cancer and kept women in binders....
