Nothing can stop Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg! She remains hospitalized after a fall broke three ribs, but her nephew said that the Notorious RBG is up and working today. From Reuters:
“The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes,” her nephew Daniel Stiepleman said at the premiere of the film “On the Basis of Sex”, about a gender-based discrimination case Ginsburg tried as a young lawyer in 1972.

Sorry, but Minnesota has turned into a suicidal shit hole.
When we reported on Los Angeles in early October, the city was experiencing an outbreak of the bacterial disease typhus. At that point, 20 cases had been reported.
One month later, the number of recorded cases has risen to over 100.
The number of flea-born Typhus cases in Los Angeles has hit 107.
So far this year 72 patients have been recorded by Los Angeles County Department of Public Health with a further 15 in Long Beach and 20 in Pasadena.
In the 2000s there were around 20 cases recorded per year and analysts are putting the dramatic rise down to a 47 per cent increase in homelessness since 2012.
One official in Long Beach told NBC News that almost half a million potential cases are ‘under investigation.’
The explosion of the homeless population is the root cause of this outbreak. Local leaders are clamoring for this epidemic to be treated as an emergency.SNL sinks to new low, mocks veteran and GOP candidate who lost his eye in Afghanistan
Saturday Night Live used to be funny. Remember Roseanne Roseannadanna or Chevy Chase being politically incorrect on Weekend Update and the catchphrases that permeated our culture: “Jane, you ignorant slut,” “You look mahvelous,” and “could it be . . . Satan?”?
SNL is no longer funny. Case in point, this week they mocked Navy SEAL veteran Dan Crenshaw, a Republican congressional candidate who lost an eye in an IED explosion in Afghanistan.
Among some of the reasons: They don’t like post offices, don’t know where to buy stamps, doesn’t have a printer (why they don’t register).
The youth vote may determine the Democrat Party’s destiny, which may not be as majestic as the party hopes. New York Magazine published interviews with 12 young people explaining why they probably won’t vote in these midterms.
I’ve seen articles spouting youth enthusiasm for Democrats, but the magazine claimed that “only a third of people ages 18 to 29 say” they plan on casting ballots for the midterms.
A few reasons? The big blow failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took in November 2016. Another feels “like the Democratic Party doesn’t really stand for the things” he believes in. One person gets anxious when he has to mail anything.
The radio ad, which has been airing for about a year, attempts to paint Sen. McCaskill as a centrist Democrat and “not one of those crazy Democrats.”
You know it’s bad when a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat is trying to portray herself as anything but a Democrat.
The Daily Dot summarizes:
The ad features two men talking about McCaskill and her opponent, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley. While one says he doesn’t always agree with McCaskill, at least she works hard and does her job, unlike Hawley, who, they claim, makes wine runs and heads to the gym during work hours.
“[McCaskill] works hard, fighting against those tariffs, doing all those town halls,” one narrator says. “Claire’s not afraid to stand up against her own party.”
“Claire’s not one of those crazy Democrats,” the other man adds. “She works right in the middle and finds compromise.”
On Monday night, the Supreme Court granted the Trump administration’s request to shield Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross from being deposed in a lawsuit over the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census. But the Court declined to block the deposition of acting Assistant Attorney General John Gore, as the administration had also asked.
It’s tough to say whether the White House should view this compromise — presumably brokered by Chief Justice John Roberts—as a win, loss or draw. Time will tell what impact it has on the census litigation.
But more broadly, the Court’s split-the-baby approach certainly doesn’t bode well for anyone hoping that the reinforced conservative majority will soon put an end to the lower courts’ ongoing power struggle with the Trump administration. Indeed, in a partial dissent, Justice Gorsuch, joined by Justice Thomas, criticized the majority for not going all the way, saying that they would’ve halted both depositions and all discovery outside the administrative record.Crazy rips up Ted Cruz signs.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s office in California was vandalized Monday, according to an Instagram post by the congressman.
McCarthy, whose local office is in Bakersfield, Calif., posted photos of the suspects and some of the damage. Two young men were caught on surveillance camera outside of the office, which had its window smashed in by a large boulder.
“Does anyone know these two guys? They threw a boulder thru our office window and took office equipment,” McCarthy wrote on his Instagram account.
McCarthy’s office is not the first GOP office to be vandalized in recent weeks. A Republican Party office in Wyoming was intentionally set on fire just two days after it opened in September. (RELATED: Wyoming GOP Office Set On Fire)
Vandals later hit The Metropolitan Republican Club on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in October, smashing windows and spray-painting anarchist signs on the doors.
Beto O’Rourke is a cult.
This “flash mob” dance video is making the rounds on social media.
Britain’s defense secretary says his country stands “absolutely resolute” with the United States as President Donald Trump says he’ll pull out from a landmark arms control agreement with Russia.
Gavin Williamson blames Russia for endangering the treaty. He’s calling on the Kremlin to “get its house in order.”
Trump says he’ll exit the agreement because Russia has violated it “for many years” and it’s preventing the U.S. from developing new weapons.
Backing Trump, Williamson tells the Financial Times that Moscow has made a “mockery” of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.
The 1987 pact prohibits the United States and Russia from possessing, producing or test-flying a ground-launched cruise missile with a range of 300 miles to 3,400 miles
The Wall Street Journal and NBC News just released a new poll, and it shows Trump surging to a 47% approval among registered voters.
Nearly two thirds of registered voters showed a high level of interest in the election—the highest ever recorded in a midterm election since the Journal/NBC poll began asking the question in 2006.
…In the aftermath of the bitter confirmation fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Republicans have closed the once-large gap between their voters’ and Democrats’ interest in the election. Now, 68% of Republican voters and 72% of Democrats say they are very interested in the election—the highest recorded for either party by the survey in a midterm election.
Also helping Republicans is a rise in President Trump’s job-approval rating to 47%, the highest mark of his time in office, with 49% disapproving his performance.
Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyer resigned from his law firm because partners objected to his decision to represent her
According to Bloomberg, Bromwich, 64, resigned from Robbins, Russell, Englert, Orseck, Untereiner & Sauber LLP, as some of the partners at the firm had objected to his decision to represent Ford.
Bromwich, a Harvard Law graduate and former federal prosecutor, was known before this hearing for assisting the investigation of the Iran-Contra affair and, more recently, for representing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired in March by Jeff Sessions two days before his scheduled retirement and for whom Bromwich helped crowdfund legal fees. According to Bloomberg, President Obama picked Bromwich to reform the offshore drilling regulations after the Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010.
Assuming this DNA test is accurate, Warren can still make no claim to membership in a Cherokee tribe. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has a minimum threshold of 1/16 “blood quantum,” and the United Keetowah Band’s threshold is 1/4 blood quantum. The Cherokee Nation does not have any minimum threshold for ancestry, but for membership, it does require that an individual “provide documents that connect you to a direct ancestor listed on one of the Dawes Final Rolls of Citizens of the Cherokee Nation.” The Dawes Rolls do not include any of Warren’s ancestors.
Much more hilarity at the link.
Antifa Website Promotes HOME ABORTION CLASSES to ‘Dismantle White Supremacist Bio-Medical Patriarchy’ In Response to Kavanaugh
The website Its Going Down claims that “autonomous pelvic care” is a “radical alternative to state sanctioned reproductive health.”
“Currently, in the tradition of gynepunk and folk herbal medical practice, the Knoxville Abortion Doula Collective and Plume & Seal Botanical Medicine are offering two workshops in Autonomous Pelvic Care for the lower Appalachian region. This radical community healthcare weekend is facilitated by trainers who are trans and queer, and this workshop will reflect a range of pelvic (reproductive/generative) support services. This is a space for queer/trans folks and all bodies, but the workshop focus is centered on services for people with uterine systems,” the website’s word salad claims.
“Topics discussed include menstrual support and regulation, herbal remedies for common vaginal complaints, self-managed abortion, how to safely offer radical pelvic care in a home-based setting, and more.”Deranged media gets Trump advisor Stephen Miller’s 3rd grade teacher to badmouth him (Legal Insurrection)
So many lines have been crossed by Democrats and their supportive media, I’m not sure there are any lines left.
Stephen Miller, advisor to Trump, is hated by Democrats and other leftists because of his role helping elect Trump and Miller’s strong positions on immigration.
Now The Hollywood Reporter has jumped on the bandwagon, running a column by Miller’s 3rd grade teacher Nikki Fiske badmouthing Miller’s 3rd grade conduct, focusing on glue again, Stephen Miller’s Third-Grade Teacher: He Was a “Loner” and Ate Glue:
Do you remember that character in Peanuts, the one called Pig Pen, with the dust cloud and crumbs flying all around him? That was Stephen Miller at 8. I was always trying to get him to clean up his desk — he always had stuff mashed up in there. He was a strange dude. I remember he would take a bottle of glue — we didn’t have glue sticks in those days — and he would pour the glue on his arm, let it dry, peel it off and then eat it.
I remember being concerned about him — not academically. He was OK with that, though I could never read his handwriting. But he had such strange personal habits. He was a loner and isolated and off by himself all the time.
Today at approximately 12:30 PM EDT, President Trump will host a working lunch in the private dining room off the Oval Office with award-winning Rapper, Producer, and Fashion Designer, Kanye West, Hall of Fame Running Back, Jim Brown, Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor, Jared Kushner and Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor, Ivanka Trump.
The discussion will be centered on President Trump’s historic work to benefit all Americans such as urban revitalization, the creation of Opportunity Zones, new workforce training programs, record highs in African American employment, the creation of manufacturing jobs, ideas from his meeting with African American pastors, potential future clemencies, and addressing the massive violent crime surge in Chicago.

I don’t know about you, but I lost more than half of my 2018 gains yesterday, and it looks to be another bad day in the markets:
Dow Jones Industrial Average Continues to Fall After 832-Point Loss
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell another 100 points in pre-market trading as indexes continued to sell off in the face of unstable global markets. Yesterday marked the Dow’s largest decline since April.
With European and Asian markets shedding value, U.S. stocks are likely to continue fall during Thursday’s trading. As losses continue to mount, we’re taking a close look at what’s driving the decline – and how you can protect your investments. Check out our analysis here…
Duluth, Minnesota getting hammered by waves and flooding:
A brief romantic encounter at UC-Davis triggered a Title IX investigation after the female student changed her mind about it weeks later.
James, a freshman at the University of California-Davis, was on his way to math class when he received an email that would derail his life for the next few months: The university’s Title IX office, which handles sexual misconduct disputes between students, was investigating a complaint against him…
In the midst of the Kavanaugh battle, President Donald Trump remarked that it was a “very scary time for young men in America,” which drew indignant scoffs from the left. The president’s interest in due process and the presumption of innocence is, as always, highly selective. But this doesn’t mean Trump’s critics should completely reject the sentiment. There are many victims of sexual mistreatment, but there are victims of bad-faith accusations as well. James was lucky to get through his “very scary time” unscathed, and those who carry the banner of #MeToo should denounce excesses and overreaches like the one he experienced.
Moral of the story? Caution your sons, as well as your daughters, about what can happen.
President Donald J. Trump‘s schedule for Wednesday, October 10th:
· Meeting with Secretary of Homeland Security and Administrator of FEMA
· Lunch with Secretary of Defense
· Signing ceremony for S. 2553 – Know the Lowest Price Act and S. 2554 – Patients Right to Know Drug Prices Act
· Travel to Erie, PA
· Roundtable with supporters
· Make America Great Again rally
· Travel to Washington, D.C.
‘Handmaids’ Protest Brett Kavanaugh’s First Day on Supreme Court
Protesters greeted newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for his first day of work on Tuesday dressed as characters from the TV show The Handmaid’s Tale.
“Say it loud, and say it clear: Kavanaugh’s not welcome here!” they chanted, dressed in long red robes and white hats in temperatures slated to reach 80 degrees.
Randall Marquis has lived in California for 31 years, but he knew it was a mistake when he received a notice last month that said he was newly registered to vote. He may have a state driver’s license, but he’s a citizen of Canada.
“When I saw that card, I just threw it out,” Marquis said. “I know I’m not going to vote. I’m not allowed to vote, it’s stupid that I should be registered to vote.”
The Newport Beach resident, who has a green card and is married to a U.S. citizen, was one of some 1,500 people who the California Department of Motor Vehicles said on Monday were wrongly registered to vote between late April and late September. These errors, which included other non-citizens, are in addition to the roughly 23,000 registration mistakes disclosed by the DMV last month.
