Left Turns to Homophobia to Attack Lindsey Graham: ‘Closeted Idiot’

By Justin Caruso, Breitbart

Following Lindsey Graham’s passionate defense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh this week, many on the left took to making homophobic attacks against Graham.

Lindsey Graham, who is unmarried, has occasionally been derisively accused of being gay by critics and pundits who engage in homophobia by using homosexuality as an implicit insult.

After Graham strongly defended Kavanaugh this week, the same homophobic jokes came back in style among liberal comics and establishment media figures.

Rosie O’Donnell started the hate train Wednesday, calling Graham a “closeted idiot” after Graham sent a tweet defending Kavanaugh.

“I very much believe in allowing people to be heard. But I am not going to be played, and I’m not going to have my intelligence insulted by the Michael Avenattis of the world. I will not be a participant in wholesale character assassination that defies credibility,” Graham tweeted.

Rosie O’Donnell replied, “fuck u u closeted idiot – this is the patriarchy exposed – this is reality deal with it !!#NoKavanaughConfirmation #NotMyPresident”


Trump calls Kavanaugh accuser a ‘credible’ witness

By Morgan Chalfant, The Hill

President Trump on Friday called the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault a “credible witness” and deferred to the Senate on whether to delay a vote on his confirmation.

“I thought her testimony was very compelling and she looks like a very fine woman to me,” Trump said following a meeting with Chilean President Sebastian Pinera at the White House.

“I thought that Brett’s testimony, likewise, was really something that I haven’t seen before, it was incredible,” Trump said. “I think it will work out very well for the country.”

Asked if he had considered a replacement for Kavanaugh, Trump responded, “Not even a little bit.”

The president’s remarks came after Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) on Friday joined other Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee in voting to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate.

But Flake called for a one-week delay in the floor vote pending an FBI investigation into the allegations brought against him this month.

Trump on Friday deferred to the Judiciary Committee on whether to reopen the FBI background investigation into Kavanaugh.

“I will be totally reliant on what [Judiciary Chairman Chuck] Grassley [R-Iowa] and the group decides to do,” Trump said. “They have to do what they think is right. They have to be comfortable with themselves.”

Ultimately, it would be up to Trump to ask the FBI to reopen its background investigation into Kavanaugh. The president has not yet done so.

The events Friday capped a dramatic week during which Kavanaugh battled new allegations of sexual misconduct.

“This confirmation process has become a national disgrace,” defends Kavanaugh

Judge Brett Kavanaugh delivered a fiery opening statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday afternoon, responding to accusations of sexual misconduct decades ago: “This confirmation process has become a national disgrace … You have replaced ‘advice and consent’ with ‘search and destroy.’”

Kavanaugh ripped the Senate — and, by implication, Senate Democrats — for  “false, last-minute smears designed to scare me and drive me out of the process before any hearing occurred.”

He read from a personal statement that he had appended to his prepared testimony, and written the day before.

In a searing indictment of the politicians before him, he mentioned some of the comments made by Democrats — including members of the committee — such as the claim by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) that supporting Kavanaugh meant being “complicit in evil.” Others, he noted, said that “people will die if I am confirmed.”

The campaign to stop his confirmation, he said, had “destroyed my good name and my family” through a “calculated and orchestrated political hit.”

Whatever the reason, — whether fueled by “pent-up anger” over the election, or for other motives — he decried the damage done to him, to the Supreme Court, and to the country.

“This is a circus. The consequences will extend long past my nomination. The consequences will be with us for decades,” he said.

However, he vowed:

“Coordinated and well-funded effort to destroy my good name, and destroy my family, will not drive me out.”

“You may defeat me in the final vote, but you’ll never get me to quit. Never.”

Kavanaugh also repeated his denials about any and all allegations of sexual assault. He seemed to choke up when mentioning his mother, a judge who inspired him to become a judge. And he teared up and paused when stating that his ten-year-old daughter had told him that they should pray for Dr. Ford.

Fox News anchors on Kavanaugh after hearing Ford: ‘This is a disaster for the Republicans’

By Jennifer Kline of AOL.com

Several Fox News anchors voiced measured support for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in the midst of her Senate testimony on Thursday.

As the hearing broke midmorning for a recess, roundtable panelists discussed Dr. Ford, and the tone a marked change for the network from even just 24 hours prior.

“You read the opening statement from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and it is one thing,” Bret Baier said. “But then you hear it, and in the way that she expresses it … it is a totally different thing after you hear it.”

Chris Wallace was even more forceful in his reaction, calling the testimony “extremely emotional, extremely raw and extremely credible”: “This is a disaster for the Republicans,” Wallace said firmly.

President Trump, a noted consistent viewer of Fox News, reportedly agrees with the panelists’ perceptions of the testimony, according to Vanity Fair correspondent Gabriel Sherman.

“Trump telling people he’s furious that WH aides didn’t have advance knowledge of how credible Ford would seem,” Sherman tweeted during the hearing’s lunch recess, citing two sources.

New Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick details parties where girls allegedly were drugged and raped

Screen Shot 2018-09-26 at 9.47.44 AM

  • The lawyer Michael Avenatti on Wednesday identified another accuser of Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, Washington resident Julie Swetnick.
  • Swetnick, in an affidavit posted online by Avenatti, claims that Kavanaugh, as a high school student in the early 1980s, with others spiked the drinks of girls at house parties with grain alcohol and/or drugs to “cause girls to lose inhibitions and their ability to say ‘No.’ “
  • Swetnick said these efforts by Kavanaugh and his buddy Mark Judge were done so the girls “could then be ‘gang raped’ in a side room or bedroom by a ‘train’ of numerous boys.” She said “I became the victim” of one such rape “where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present.”


A third accuser of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday publicly identified herself and alleged that Kavanaugh and others while in high school spiked the drinks of girls at parties with intoxicants to make it easier for them to be gang raped.

The woman, Julie Swetnick, said Kavanaugh was in line with other boys, including his close friend Mark Judge, waiting to rape those girls at many parties, and that she once became a victim herself. The allegations were detailed in an affidavit released by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

Swetnick’s stunning claims, made on the eve of scheduled testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by Kavanaugh and his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, came in an affidavit sent to a senior committe staffer. Ford claims Kavanuagh held her down on a bed and groped her during a gathering in the 1980s while Judge watched.

Swetnick’s accusations against Kavanaugh, who currently serves as a federal appeals judge in Washington, D.C., could make an already imperiled nomination to the Supreme Court even less likely to succeed.

Kavanaugh said, in a statement about Swetnick: “This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone.”

“I don’t know who this is and this never happened,” Kavanaugh said. He had told Fox News earlier this week that “I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone.”

In a letter to Judiciary Committee leaders made public after Swetnick’s claims came to light,, Kavanaugh vowed not to withdraw his nomination.

Butr Avenatti, during an interview on MSNBC, said, “There should be an immediate investigation” of Swetnick’s claims against Kavanaugh, ” and there should be no rush to confirm him to the U.S. Supreme Court.”

“The allegations in this declaration are shocking,” Avenatti said.

In addition to Swetnick and Ford, another woman, Kavanaugh’s Yale University classmate Deborah Ramirez, has accused him of exposing himself to her and causing her to touch his penis at a boozy dorm party

The White House had no immediate comment on Swetnick’s allegations, which were signed under penalty of perjury.

Judge’s lawyer Barbara Van Gelder said, “Mr. Judge vehemently denies the allegations contained in the Swetnick affidavit.”

The 55-year-old certified systems engineer Swetnick, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC, identified herself as a resident of Washington, D.C.

A 1980 graduate of Gaithersburg High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland, she said she has has held multiple work clearances for work done at the Treasury Department, U.S. Mint, IRS, State Department and Justice Department, among others.

Swetnick, in the affidavit posted on Twitter by Avenatti, claims that she saw Kavanaugh, as a high school student in Maryland in the early 1980s, “drink excessively at many” house parties in suburban Maryland. At the time, Kavanaugh and Judge were students at the the private Catholic school Georgetown Prep.

She said he and Judge engaged in “abusive and physically agressive behavior toward girls,” which “included the fondling and groping of girls without their consent” and “not taking ‘No’ for an answer.”

During the years of 1981 and 1982 she said she learned of efforts by Kavanaugh, his friend Judge and others “to spike the drinks of girls at house parties I attended with grain alcohol and/or drugs so as to cause girls to lose inhibitions and their ability to say ‘No.’ ”

Certain girls were targeted by those boys, and “it was usually a girl that was especially vulnerable because she was alone at the party or shy,” Swetnick claimed.

Swetnick said these efforts by Kavanaugh and his buddy Judge were done so the girls “could then be ‘gang raped’ in a side room or bedroom by a ‘train’ of numerous boys.”

“I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their ‘turn’ with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh,” Swetnick said.

She also said in her affidavit sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee that in approximately 1982 “I became the victim of one of these ‘gang’ or ‘train’ rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present.”

“Shortly after the incident, I shared what had transpired with at least two other people,” Swetnick said.

“During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me, I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking.”

She says that she shared the story of her own alleged gang rape with “at least two other people” shortly after it occurred.

Teacher Claims She Was Fired for Giving Students Zeroes for Unsubmitted Homework

By Nate Church, Breitbart News

Port St. Lucie, Florida, teacher Diane Tirado claims she lost her job because she would not give students a 50% grade for work they did not turn in.

“I got fired. I was packing my stuff, and I was not going to see the kids,” Tirado said. Instead of saying goodbye to them personally, she left a simple message on the classroom whiteboard:

Bye kids, Mrs. Tirado loves you and wishes you the best in life! I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in. [heart] Mrs. Tirado.

Tirado then took a picture of the message, which she posted to Facebook. Almost immediately, messages of support flooded the post. “You showed me to be responsible for my work and the things that I do. I hope you don’t forget me,” said one student. Many others called the school board’s decision “unbelievable,” and “ridiculous.

irado had assigned an “explorer’s notebook” to the students, and given them two weeks to submit it. When some of them did not, she discovered that the school prohibited grades lower than 50%. “NO ZERO’S – LOWEST POSSIBLE GRADE IS 50%” her handbook said.

She refused on the grounds that such a policy “sends the wrong message,” and now believes it cost her her job. “If there’s nothing to grade, how can I give somebody a 50 percent?” she asked.

The 52-year-old educator taught eighth grade social studies for 17 years before she was forced out, and the September 14 termination letter does not even give cause, except to say that she can be dismissed for any reason.

The story has gone viral, and peaked at the #1 spot on Reddit’s front page. Early Tuesday morning, she posted an update: “Good morning! I am reading all the posts you have written and reflecting upon them,” she said. “Teaching should not be this hard.”
