Dems Calling for FBI Investigation Into Kavanaugh Go Silent After Shocking Video of Biden Surfaces

Published

on

If you have been around politics for any length of time, you know what a piece of work Joe Biden is. His buffoonery and penchant for hugging and kissing women are legendary. However, as comical as he seems, Biden has been involved in legislation over the years such as the Patriot Act that has changed this nation forever. It’s enlightening to view his remarks from years ago that now hold relevance in the Kavanaugh mess.

Democrats have feigned the moral high ground over how there just has to be an FBI investigation into the Swiss cheese allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh dating from an alleged sexual assault 36 years ago.

That’s ridiculous. How can the FBI investigate an incident that all of the witnesses said never happened and one in which the proclaimed victim can’t remember the year, the place, who hosted the party, who was there, how she got there and home, etc? Exactly what would they find? Nothing. But it would stall the nomination indefinitely, which was the point all along.

If you listen to former Democrat Senator Joe Biden in 1991, you will hear and see just how much the left’s stance has shifted since that time. Biden’s rude lecture was given to Clarence Thomas at the time over Anita Hill. Thomas would go on to be confirmed and be the staunchest constitutional originalist on the high court, which is why they were so desperate to stop him at the time.

Biden was and still is an unmitigated disaster. He claimed back then that FBI reports were a waste of time. Now he’s demanding one on Kavanaugh. His political stances shift with the winds of change just as the rest of the Democrats do.

From Fox News:

“Former Vice President Joe Biden voiced regret Friday over how he handled sexual misconduct allegations brought against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas by Anita Hill more than 25 years ago, amid similar accusations today against Brett Kavanaugh.

“In an interview with NBC News aired Friday, Biden suggested he would apologize to Hill, who accused Justice Thomas in 1991 of making sexually explicit comments and unwanted advances toward her while she worked for him at the Education Department and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the 1980s.

“Biden, at the time, was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, leading the Thomas confirmation proceedings. Biden has been criticized for his handling of that process.

“The woman should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be you know, abused again, by the system. My biggest regret was I didn’t know how I could shut you off if you were a senator and you were attacking Anita Hill’s character,” Biden said. “Under the Senate rules, I can’t gavel you down and say you can’t ask that question. Although I tried.”

“Biden added: “I believed her when she came forward. I encouraged her to come forward. We were in a position where we go the FBI to do an investigation and I voted against Clarence Thomas.”

“Thomas at the time denied the allegations and famously described the process as a “high-tech lynching.”

[…]

“I think they should do an FBI investigation. We did that for Anita Hill,” Biden explained Friday. “Most importantly, Anita Hill was vilified when she came forward by a lot of my colleagues, character assassination. I wish I could’ve done more to prevent those questions, the way they asked them.”

“Biden added: “She deserves to be treated with dignity. It takes enormous courage for a woman to come forward.’”

So, now that it is politically expedient, Biden wants the FBI in on the Kavanaugh hearing. Back in 1991, an FBI investigation was meaningless, today, it is imperative. This is such breathtaking hypocrisy and it is blatant obstructionism on steroids.

Kavanaugh’s first accuser, Ford, is set to testify tomorrow on The Hill. Maybe, we’ll see. His second accuser, Ramirez, refuses to testify. But Biden said he did not think there should be a vote to confirm Kavanaugh if Ford decided not to testify. Sorry Biden, Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote is Friday morning. He better be confirmed or the Republicans face a rout in the midterm elections that will be epic.

For a brief heartbeat, after the shocking Biden video surfaced, the Dems went all quiet. Even they see the hypocrisy in all this. However, lacking any moral fiber whatsoever, they quickly recovered from that and resumed their witchhunt. They can’t stop Kavanaugh with this crap anymore. The Republicans will get their chance Friday. Don’t drop the ball guys.

Top Dem Caught Red-Handed Trying To Steal Election – She’s In YUGE Trouble Now!

Published

* By

Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams filed a lawsuit in federal court Sunday in the hopes she could legally force a runoff election in her race against rival Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp.

Abrams, who has not conceded to Kemp despite him gaining 50.3 percent of the vote with 100 percent of precincts reporting as of Monday afternoon, filed a lawsuit Sunday to block two counties from rejecting provisional and absentee ballots with slight errors, the Washington Post reported.

The lawsuit also calls for county officials to accept provisional ballots from voters who have not updated their current addresses when registering to vote, and seeks to extend the deadline for certifying election results to Wednesday.

The lawsuit also asks county officials to count provisional ballots from voters who have changed addresses but not updated their voter registration and seeks an extended deadline to certify the election results.

Georgia’s counties have until Tuesday to certify their election results.

Kemp declared victory even though Abrams refused to concede, and his campaign has called Abrams’ actions “a disgrace to democracy.”

“Stacey Abrams’ antics are a disgrace to democracy and completely ignore the will of the people,” campaign communications director Ryan Mahoney said in a statement. “Georgia voters have spoken. It’s time for Abrams to listen and concede immediately.”

Abrams said she is refusing to surrender the election because she is “fighting” for democracy.

“I am fighting to make sure our democracy works for and represents everyone who has ever put their faith in it,” Abrams said. “I am fighting for every Georgian who cast a ballot with the promise that their vote would count.”

Abrams campaign says there are enough ballots that have not been counted to force a runoff election. Under Georgia law, if Kemp’s percentage of the vote falls below 50 percent, a runoff election would be required.

FACT CHECK: Are Illegal Aliens Less Likely To Commit Crimes Than US-Born Citizens?

Published

* By

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Daily Caller

Many people claimed recently that illegal immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than native-born U.S. citizens.

Verdict: Unsubstantiated

Many studies suggest that immigrant populations do not drive an increase in crime. Critics point to government data, however, that show a disproportionate number of those convicted or incarcerated for federal crimes were non-citizens.

Few studies look at crime rates for illegal immigrants specifically, and those that do exist are limited in their scope. Some only examine more severe types of crime, and they do not account for crimes that were not reported.

Fact Check:

People said that illegal immigrants were less likely to commit crimes after President Donald Trump’s campaign released an ad Oct. 31 that featured a migrant caravan headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border alongside footage of an illegal immigrant who killed two police officers. Several companies, including Fox News and NBC, pulled the ad. CNN called it “racist.”

“People who were born in America actually commit most of the crimes. Immigrants don’t usually commit as much crime,” CNN anchor Don Lemon said in a segment Nov. 4.

“Illegal entrants especially because they want to stay low on the radar,” CNN’s Chris Cuomo responded.

Dorothy A. Brown, a law professor at Emory University, wrote in a CNN op-ed Nov. 1 that the ad is not grounded in reality. “The research is clear. Undocumented and legal immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than native-born American citizens,” she wrote.

Singer and actress Barbra Streisand made the claim on Twitter. “To reiterate… Crime rates are lower amongst unauthorized immigrants than American born citizens,” she tweeted Nov. 4.

Studies examine the relationship between immigration and crime in two main ways: by exploring whether there’s a correlation between immigration and crime rates, and by examining the makeup of those convicted of crimes to see if immigrants commit crimes at a higher rate than U.S-born citizens.

Many studies suggest that immigrant populations do not drive an increase in crime rates and that immigrants are not more likely to be convicted of crimes.

A study of violent and property crime rates in 200 metropolitan areas found that crime stayed stable or fell in 136 areas from 1980 to 2010 even though the immigrant population increased. Another analysis of studies on the immigrant-crime relationship published from 1994 to 2014 in the Annual Review of Criminology found that “overall, the immigration-crime association is negative – but very weak.” And a 1997 study found that among 18- to 40-year-old men, immigrants are less likely to be incarcerated than native-born citizens.

However, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), which favors reduced immigration, identified figures from the U.S. Sentencing Commission that show that immigrants make up a disproportionate share of those convicted of federal crimes. Non-citizens make up about 8.4 percent of the adult population in the U.S., CIS said, but 44.2 percent of those convicted of federal crimes between 2011 and 2016 were not U.S. citizens. Excluding immigration crimes, the figure was 21.4 percent.

A Government Accountability Office (GAO) report published in July also shows a disproportionate share of federal inmates. About 21.5 percent of those incarcerated in federal prisons in fiscal year 2016 were non-citizens.

These studies have limitations. They do not distinguish between legal immigrants and those in the country illegally. Some studies account for only violent crime and property crime. The U.S. Sentencing Commission and GAO figures only account for federal crimes, while most crimes are prosecuted at the state level.

Other studies examine crime in relation to illegal immigrants specifically. Brown cited one of them in her op-ed: A 2018 study of crimes rates from 1990 to 2014 found that “the relationship between undocumented immigration and violent crime is generally negative.”

That does not mean, though, that illegal immigrants commit violent crimes at a lower rate than U.S.-born citizens – only that areas with more illegal immigrants are not necessarily more dangerous.

To determine whether illegal immigrants commit crimes at a higher or lower rate than U.S. citizens, researchers must estimate the size of the illegal immigrant population – most analyses say that there are between 11 million and 13 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. – and how many crimes were committed by illegal immigrants.

Limited data makes the latter difficult. Government sources generally don’t say whether incarcerated non-citizens are in the country legally or not.

“Crime data in the United States are awful,” Alex Nowrasteh, senior immigration policy analyst at the libertarian Cato Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email. “Government should directly identify illegal immigrants who are incarcerated.”

Research from Cato, a pro-immigration think tank, attempts to quantify the number of incarcerated illegal immigrants to compare their incarceration rates to U.S.-born citizens.

Nowrasteh said that Texas is the only state that keeps data on the number of convictions for illegal immigrants for specific crimes. He found that the criminal conviction rate was higher for U.S. natives than for illegal immigrants in Texas in 2015 – 1,797 per 100,000 compared to 899 per 100,000.

A second Cato study from Nowrasteh examined nationwide incarceration rates based on data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS). Because the ACS only distinguishes the incarcerated population by nativity and naturalization status, not whether an immigrant was in the country illegally or not, Cato used statistical methods to identify illegal immigrants. The analysis found that illegal immigrants were 47 percent less likely to be incarcerated than native-born U.S. citizens.

One study on Arizona conviction rates from John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, contradicts the Cato findings. “Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans,” the study said.

Lott’s study is disputed. Nowrasteh said that Lott mistakenly included legal immigrants in his analysis, and the Arizona Department of Corrections said that its data does not distinguish between legal and illegal immigrants. Lott maintains that he did not misinterpret the Arizona data. He told TheDCNF in an email that the Cato study, not his, “mixes together legal and illegal immigrants.”

Many articles, including Brown’s, cite the Cato studies as evidence that the crime rate for illegal immigrants is lower than for U.S.-born citizens. However, incarceration and conviction rates do not account for crimes that were not reported. The Bureau of Justice Statistics found that 52 percent of violent victimizations from 2006 to 2010 went unreported to police. About 51 percent of Hispanic and Latinos victims did not report a violent incident, a slightly lower proportion than white victims – 54 percent.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at CIS, noted that the studies omit many types of crimes committed by illegal immigrants. “At least half of illegal aliens committed a crime in entering the United States illegally,” she told TheDCNF in an email. “Moreover, we estimate that about half of all the illegal aliens who are employed are working on the books, but they obtained their jobs by fraudulently claiming to be here legally. These crimes are not all prosecuted, but they still committed them.”

A 2009 CIS report on immigration and crime notes that the deportation of criminal aliens may play a role in reducing their incarceration rates because many will not re-enter the country and commit more crimes, whereas native-born criminals may commit repeat offenses. “Prosecutors are known to sometimes drop pending charges against non-citizens once ICE indicates it will deport the alien, thereby sweeping the case off the prosecutor’s docket,” it said.

“Incarceration rates is only one of several different possible measures,” Nowrasteh said. “I wish that I could measure the crime committed by illegal immigrants that is either not reported nor prosecuted. Doing so would give a full and complete understanding of crime in the United States. Unfortunately, that’s impossible.”
