Clarence Thomas’ Name on College Building

Students from Savannah College of Art and Design drafted a petition to have Justice Clarence Thomas’ name removed from a campus building. “The case between Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill in 1991 was extremely similar to what is happening to Dr. Ford today,” the petition states, “When will we learn that a victim’s trauma should outweigh politics? For women like Dr. Ford, and Anita Hill to come forward and speak out about what happened to them is extremely traumatic.” As a learning institution, the school should strongly teach a lesson about the importance of the right to due process and should not encourage a guilty-until-proven-innocent ...

Yes, women stand with Kavanaugh!

After a long and exhaustive process, Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed and sworn in to the U.S. Supreme Court. On his first day as a justice, he hired an all-female class of law clerks—making more than half of the Supreme Court’s law clerks women for the first time in history. He is a justice for women and many women saw the left’s attempted partisan-driven character assassination for what it was. Women gathered at the ceremonial swearing in of Justice Kavanaugh to show their support for a man whose career was almost ruined by baseless accusations. Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin joined Concerned Women for America ...

Mitchell: A reasonable prosecutor would not bring this case before the Committee

After hearing from both Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Senate Democrats continued to find ways to obstruct the confirmation process. In order to secure the floor votes needed for Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, GOP leadership once again caved to the demands of Senate Democrats by accepting an FBI probe. The prosecutor questioning both Ford and Kavanaugh, Rachel Mitchell, released a memo on Sunday explaining her own independent assessment based on her nearly 25 years of experience and review of the limited evidence presented. View Mitchell’s full assessment here. In a nutshell, according to Mitchell, the ...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Reacts to Judge Brett Kavanaugh Testimony

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement reacting to Judge Brett Kavanaugh testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee: “Judge Brett Kavanaugh delivered a compelling and passionate opening statement today.  He was an outstanding nominee weeks ago, and now we see he’s an excellent human being who will fight for truth and justice, and against political pressure. All of the Democrats on the committee should be ashamed of themselves. Rather than get Dr. Ford help and conduct themselves with honor, they tried to destroy a good man for their own power.” ###

Senate Republicans are in charge. They should act like it!

The Democrats and their allies in the media have turned the month-long confirmation process of a Supreme Court nominee into a back ally brawl. One side is playing by the rules and the other is pulling out knives. The Democrats are harping over the decades-old, previously unreported sexual assault allegations but their motivations are obvious and entirely political. If Senate Republicans want to play by the rules in this fight, they should exercise the power they already have. The Hill has the commentary: These folks are the ones who went hat-in-hand to disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who turned sexual assault into an Oscar-winning ...

Hate to break it to disgruntled Dems, but Kavanagh is a well-qualified nominee

Last week seemed more like a circus act than a confirmation process for a U.S. Supreme Court nominee. Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other top Democrats devised an unsuccessful plan to gridlock the process – already having their minds made up day one before even hearing from U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Sen. Cory Booker “took matters into his own hands” by releasing documents marked “committee confidential,” which was much ado about nothing since some of the documents he released were already approved to be released. Despite the attacks, interruptions, and protests from activists and Senate Democrats, Judge ...

Trump’s Supreme Court pick will uphold the Constitution; that scares opponents

Opponents are working overtime to make sure Judge Brett Kavanaugh doesn’t take a seat up on the U.S. Supreme Court. Unfortunately for Democrats, nothing damaging is sticking. Judge Kavanaugh will make a great justice because of his determination to uphold the rule of law and the Constitution – a problem for anyone who relies on the administrative state and using coercion to implement policy. The Daily Signal has the story: For those who rely on the administrative state and coercion as a policy tool—forcing people to join political organizations, forcing them to support abortion, forcing them to subsidize socially progressive sacraments, ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: President Trump delivers yet another promise to conservatives with Judge Brett Kavanaugh

On Monday, President Trump announced a Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy created by Justice Anthony Kennedy. President Trump kept his promise to conservatives by nominating Judge Brett Kavanaugh, an exceptionally well-qualified judge who will interpret and apply the law fairly. The Hill has Jenny Beth’s commentary:  Kavanaugh is a nominee with excellent academic and professional credentials. As a law clerk to three federal judges, including Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom he will be replacing, Kavanaugh began his career after graduating from Yale Law School working with some of the leading lights of the federal judiciary. ...
