Sarah Palin threatens to primary Murkowski over Kavanaugh no vote
Sarah's not perfect, but I think she'd do a hell of a lot better than Murkowski's no vote. The problem, I think, is that Murkowski is in good standing with the Deep State and has some sort of clout. She lost the primary before and won her seat on write-ins. That's crazy, but she did it. (I suspect that there were, as James Baker would say, "abnormalities" in the vote count).
Unlike the usual examples, this guy appears to be on the right and is actually a gun owner. He says he was making fun of liberals. His friends seem to support that.
I'm posting this to note that the violence is escalating on both sides. Even if this guy wasn't serious (and since he was arrested without incident, I'm inclined to think that's the right take... but that doesn't necessarily mean he shouldn't face consequences for the threats), the constant actual violence and threats coming from the left are starting to get a response on the right. And that's a significant danger signal.
While the Democrats are trying to make a big deal out of a college student who liked beer 30 years ago, someone should point out that Ruth Bader Ginsberg, one of their favorite justices, has a bit of a drinking problem. It certainly looks like she was "drunk to the point of passing out", doesn't it?
Ford's ex-boyfriend destroys her story and reveals her lies
Ace has the details. Sure, he's an ex and may thus has a motive to be vindictive, but he doesn't sound especially angry. He reveals a few things that contradict her Senate testimony, which could get her in legal trouble if she lied. (New Rules: we should absolutely prosecute any lies).
Halper paid $250K for a report his advisors don't remember
Interesting. It seems likely these "studies" were simply excuses to cover up the payments for his help with the spying operation on Trump. If nothing else, he may be vulnerable to charges of fraud totaling nearly a million dollars.
Mueller makes invalid arguments to defend his appt
The problem here is twofold.
First, the statutes have changed. That makes precedents about the old statute invalid unless they can be easily applied to the new one.
Second, Mueller's appointment did not comply with the new statute, which requires that specific crimes must be identified for the investigation. The current law does not authorize a counterintelligence investigation by a special counsel.
