This is not going to happen

Hot Air: "Report: House Dems Weighing Contempt Charge Against Corey Lewandowski Over Tuesday’s Hearing."

C'mon, man, this is all posturing.  The Democrats want to bury the memory of that hearing in a shallow grave.

Faux-conomics

ABC News: "Buttigieg calls Warren 'extremely evasive' on health taxes."

Warren is terrible when she's pushed off her well-rehearsed talking points.  The media is going to protect her all the way up until her first debate with Trump and then it's all going to fall apart once that bubble is popped.

Yes, it's amazing she hasn't been pressed on this

Since the media won't do its job, it took Stephen Colbert to finally at least try to pin Elizabeth Warren down on the inevitable middle class tax hikes that would necessarily come with Medicare for All.  (Spoiler alert: he failed)

Hot Air: "Elizabeth Warren Won’t Tell The Truth About Middle-Class Taxes Despite Stephen Colbert Pleading With Her To Do So."

Federalist: "Elizabeth Warren Has a Plan—For Avoiding Your Health Care Questions" - "Telling people they will lose their coverage, and figuring out how to pay for this $30 trillion-plus system? Elizabeth Warren doesn’t want to bother answering questions about those minor details."

Americans have steadily lost faith in the press

New York Times: "Hold my beer."
To summarize, the Times had information that Ford’s account was essentially nuked and discredited. Instead of running that as the lead story delved from this garbage book, they reran old allegations and included a new one which lacked any credibility at all, to the point where even the alleged victim has no recollection of it.

“Journalism.”

Are we supposed to believe that was just an honest editorial decision? Come on. The authors of this book were so partisan, so wrapped up in their own narrative that they did everything they could to frame things in a way to hurt Kavanaugh. It just so happens that they did such an awful job at it that their claims fell apart within hours.
Trump has driven the lamestream media absolutely insane and this latest hit job against Kavanaugh is just more of the same. 

Gee, why is there a housing shortage?

Reason Online: "Minneapolis Doesn't Want Landlords to Check Tenants' Criminal History, Credit Score, Past Evictions" - "The Minneapolis city council just made the rental business a lot riskier for property owners."

Dude's never gonna make it

Twitchy: "Joe Biden says his child care tax credit would put 720 million women back into the workforce (video)."  Oh yeah, the video is very clear.

Salad fork Amy

I'm linking this post just for this line:
Meanwhile, Amy Klobuchar has assaulted more women in her senate office than Kavanaugh has.
Heh.

What we've come to expect from the media

National Review: "The New York Times Anti-Kavanaugh Bombshell Is Actually a Dud."
The book isn’t released until Tuesday, but Mollie Hemingway got a copy, and she writes on Twitter: “The book notes, quietly, that the woman Max Stier named as having been supposedly victimized by Kavanaugh and friends denies any memory of the alleged event.” Omitting this fact from the New York Times story is one of the worst cases of journalistic malpractice in recent memory.
And yet, it's all so familiar.  The "Democracy dies in darkness" crowd isn't even trying to cover up their advocacy anymore.

Extra - Mollie Hemingway's twitter reaction: "I'm actually kind of enjoying how bad this is."

The Paper of Record:

ICYMI

The Intercept: "Joe Biden's stunningly racist answer on the legacy of slavery has been overlooked."

I have predicted that Biden will lose both New Hampshire and Iowa and then his support in South Carolina will wither because of these early setbacks.  (When your entire argument is "electability" it's subverted when you can't get elected.)  These latest gaffes will not endear him to the very South Carolina voters he's depending on.

Which leaves, what, Warren?  There won't be an U-haul trucks at the White House anytime soon.

Drop out, Joe

Rolling Stone (!): "Why It’s Time for Joe to Go" - "Democrats need an antiracist nominee to run against a racist like Donald Trump. The third debate confirmed Biden isn’t up to the task"

When i saw this same article earlier in the day, the title was "Drop out, Joe Biden."  This revision drops the imperative tone.

The cringe

Kamala Harris' performance in the debate last night was cringier than "Scott's Tots."  It was full of uncomfortable laughing and dead-cat-bounce "zingers."

Legal Insurrection has it right: "Kamala Harris’ campaign should have ended tonight at #DemDebate."  I can't believe I once believed that she had a chance at the nomination.  She's all done now.

These plans suck

David French: "Elizabeth Warren’s ‘Plans for Everything’ Consistently Violate the Law."

Confirmed: Christine Blasey Ford lied

At least her own father thinks so.  How else to explain this story from the Federalist: "Christine Blasey Ford’s Father Supported Brett Kavanaugh’s Confirmation" - "After Christine Blasey Ford publicly alleged that Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape her, her father repeatedly communicated to Kavanaugh's father that he supported Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court."

During the confirmation hearings, the media barely covered the very strange detail that nobody in her blood family would go on record supporting poor Christine.

Not even bothering with the law anymore

Fox News: "Supreme Court allows Trump asylum restrictions to take effect, ending 9th Circuit injunctions."
Only Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented.
No kidding.  The only two who thought it was good law to force you to bake a cake also opposed this decision.  The cynic in me believes that these two don't even care about the law; they only care about their SJW credentials.

Extra - Hot Air: "The point is, she cast her vote based, in part, on tradition rather than law."

Some airplanes did something

PJ Media: "NYT: 'Airplanes Took Aim' on 9/11."
I'll never understand the mindset. They know Islamic terrorists did it. Yet their first impulse was to say that the "airplanes took aim." As if nobody would notice. They had to be publicly shamed into grudgingly admitting even a partial truth about what really happened.
In their defense, they were probably preoccupied with yet another breathless story about Trump drawing on a weather map.
