"Republican women who support Sex Predator Trump ...Abusers, Sluts, Racists, Drunks or Stupid?"

I for one am shocked at this blatant display of sexism as well as misogyny. For a SFF member to call women the above names is totally unacceptable. To base it on their political views is even more asinine. I would think that all the women here on SFF would be up in arms and demanding this knot head issue an apology to all women regardless of their politics. Democrat, Republican or Independent, this attack is totally below the standards of decent debate.

Angry is not the correct adjective to describe my rage over this "blog" LIVID, Acrimonious, Apoplectic are much more descriptive.

I urge all the women members here to DEMAND an apology as well as to ask SFF to consider a ban on this person.

The whip was the first human invention to break the sound barrier. The cracking sound a bullwhip makes when properly wielded is, in fact, a small sonic boom. A sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves created by an object traveling through the air faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding much like an explosion. The end of the whip, known as the "cracker", moves faster than the speed of sound, thus creating a sonic boom.

Another Problem for Mrs Clinton

In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

"I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case," Lamberth said during Friday's hearing.

The Department of Justice's Inspector General (IG), Michael Horowitz, noted in a bombshell report in June that it was "inconsistent with typical investigative strategy" for the FBI to allow Mills to sit in during the agency's interview of Clinton during the email probe, given that classified information traveled through Mills' personal email account. "[T]here are serious potential ramifications when one witness attends another witness' interview," the IG wrote.

On Friday, Lamberth, who was appointed to the bench by President Ronald Reagan, said he did not know Mills had been granted immunity until he "read the IG report and learned that and that she had accompanied [Clinton] to her interview."

The transparency group Judicial Watch initially sued the State Department in 2014, seeking information about the response to the Benghazi attack after the government didn't respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Other parallel lawsuits by Judicial Watch are probing issues like Clinton's server, whose existence was revealed during the course of the litigation.

The State Department had immediately moved to dismiss Judicial Watch's first lawsuit on a motion for summary judgment, saying in an affidavit that it had conducted a search of all potentially relevant emails in its possession and provided them. The affidavit noted that some more documents and emails could be forthcoming.

But Lamberth denied the request to dismiss the lawsuit at the time -- and on Friday, he said he was happy he did, charging that State Department officials had intentionally misled him because other key documents, including those on Clinton's email server, had not in fact been produced.

"It was clear to me that at the time that I ruled initially, that false statements were made to me by career State Department officials, and it became more clear through discovery that the information that I was provided was clearly false regarding the adequacy of the search and this – what we now know turned out to be the Secretary’s email system," Lamberth said Friday.

He continued: "I don’t know the details of what kind of IG inquiry there was into why these career officials at the State Department would have filed false affidavits with me. I don’t know the details of why the Justice Department lawyers did not know false affidavits were being filed with me, but I was very relieved that I did not accept them and that I allowed limited discovery into what had happened."

During a tense exchange with Justice Department lawyer Robert Prince, Lamberth pressed the issue, accusing Prince of using "doublespeak" and "playing the same word games [Clinton] played."

That "was not true," the judge said, referring to the State Department's assurances in a sworn declaration that it had searched all relevant documents. "It was a lie."

Four Americans were killed in the attack on the Benghazi embassy, and the Clinton State Department was faulted for ignoring security concerns in the run-up to the attack, contributing to the poor defense posture at the post.

The independent government Accountability Review Board that examined the tragedy concluded there were “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels” at the department that “resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.”

Then-national security adviser Susan Rice claimed on several talk shows that the attack was caused by a YouTube video, even as e-mails uncovered after the fact revealed that administration officials knew the incident was the result of terrorism. Officials the State Department were stunned by Rice's appearances, according to the emails, with one State Department employee suggesting Rice had gone "off the reservation."

Rice has since openly suggested she is considering running against Maine moderate Republican Sen. Susan Collins because of her vote to support Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation. Rice called Collins' speech announcing her vote a "paean to disingenuousness and incoherence."

But Collins has downplayed any potential challenge from Rice.

Alberto DeSalvo is best known for confessing to be the "Boston Strangler". It was the 1960s and single women across Massachusetts were the target of a serial killer and ra&ist. When it was over, the Boston Strangler had killed 13 women. DeSalvo was never charged in the case and was found dead in his prison cell in 1973. However in 2013, a plastic water bottle that was discarded by DeSalvo’s nephew, gave police the DNA evidence they needed to bring closure to a case that had been a mystery for nearly 50 years.

CBS Grossly Misquotes Trump, While Their Own Video Exposes Their Fake News
Posted:Oct 17, 2018 6:02 am

It really speaks to how vehemently opposed the media is to Trump that they’re more interested in boldly tarnishing their own reputation as journalists in order to smear Trump than they are in simply reporting on the truth.

On Sunday, CBS aired Trump’s “60 Minutes” interview which meant, of course, they feigned shock at anything they said that they could possibly interpret as even mildly controversial.

And then dominate the news cycle with their endless feigned shock.

In the “60 Minutes” interview, the moment they zeroed in on was when Trump was asked about Christine Blasey Ford and and replied, “It doesn’t matter. We won.”

Cue the pearl-clutching.

Never mind that this moment was unfairly characterized, not surprisingly.

As usual with the media, the context in which Trump made this comment is far different than they’d like you to believe:

When being grilled by interviewer Lesley Stahl on how Christine Blasey Ford was treated by the Senate Judiciary, he said:

“Well, I think she was treated with great respect, I’ll be honest with you.”

“Do you think you treated her with respect?” Stahl then asked.

“I think so, yeah,” Trump replied. “I did.”

“But you seem to be saying that she lied,” Stahl pushed.

“You know what? not going to get into it, because we won,” Trump said. “It doesn’t matter. We won.”

While the President wasn’t exactly stunningly articulate and graceful, his comments were most definitely taken out of context by controversy-hungry CBS.

To say “ not going to get into it, because it’s over” is actually a pretty reasonable response to whether or not Blasey Ford lied, and the proper one for the President to make.

The left may certainly yearn to resurrect the Kavanaugh stuff, but there’s absolutely no good reason to, so POTUS replied appropriately by wanting to lay it to rest.

The media, on the other hand, has absolutely no shame.

The American Civil War (also known by other names) was a war fought in the United States (U.S.) from 1861 to 1865. The Union and Confederacy quickly raised volunteer and conscription armies that fought mostly in the South over the course of four years. Intense combat left 620,000 to 750,000 people dead, more than the number of U.S. military deaths in all other wars combined

Fauxcahontas’ 1/32 Cherokee claim debunked
Posted:Oct 16, 2018 5:14 am
Last Updated:Oct 19, 2018 4:55 am

The Cherokee Nation responded to the results of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's DNA test on Monday, arguing that “a DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship.” The response came after the Democratic senator revealed that, based on tests, she has Native-American ancestry “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.”

"Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America," Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a press release.

"Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation," Hoskin continued. "Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage."

Warren took the rare step of sharing DNA test results examining her long-challenged Native-American bloodline earlier Monday. According to the analysis, as first reported by The Boston Globe, “the vast majority” of Warren’s family tree is European and there is “strong evidence” she has Native-American ancestry - albeit anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1,024.

Warren, who is mulling a 2020 presidential run, repeatedly has been mocked by President Trump for claiming Native American heritage. The president has called her "Pocahontas" while criticizing her on the campaign trail.

In an apparent response to those jabs, Warren produced a video for her Senate re-election campaign playing up the results of her latest DNA test.
