Marsha Blackburn Opens Up 8-Point Lead In Tennessee Senate Race On Heels Of Trump Rally And Kavanaugh Confirmation – Gateway Pundit

Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn has jumped out to an 8 percentage point lead over democrat Phil Bredesen for the open Senate seat in Tennessee.

According to the latest CBS/YouGov poll, Blackburn earns 50% of the vote, against Bredesen’s 42%. Additionally, 54% of the respondents say Blackburn is “Honest and Trustworthy,” while she wins on immigration by 15 points, 47%-32%.

Just 31% of the voters agree with the democrats gun control schemes. 81% of the voters are happy with the economy. 1,002 likely voters were polled.

This is a stunning turn of events, as Real Clear Politics had Bredesen leading through most of the year, right up until around the time the Kavanaugh hearings started. Until late September, Bredesen was up by a few percentage points.

Then another poll in late September and early October showed Blackburn up by 5 points. And now a week later she’s extending her lead…

Alaska GOP Considering Whether To Throw Murkowski Out Of GOP For Opposing Kavanaugh – Daily Wire

The Alaska Republican party has requested that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) submit any information she has that might dissuade them from reprimanding her for opposing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

As AP reports, “Party Chairman Tuckerman Babcock says the committee could decide to issue a statement. Or he says it could withdraw support of Murkowski, encourage party officials to look for a replacement and ask that she not seek re-election as a Republican.”

Babcock noted that the Alaska GOP has, in the past, withdrawn support for other Republicans who caucused with Democrats.

After Murkowski voted against cloture last Friday, indicating she would vote against Kavanaugh in the Senate vote for confirmation to the Supreme Court, Babcock said he was “surprised.” He added, “It’s significant enough that I’m going to convene the whole state central committee, which is about 80 grassroots volunteers around the state, and we’ll start drafting what our response should be.”…

Partying MPs Told Off After Cleaners Find Used Condoms And Vomit In Their Westminster Offices – Daily Record

Partying MPs face strict new rules about their behaviour after cleaners complained of finding used condoms and vomit in their Westminster offices.

Disgusted cleaners are sick of being forced to clear up after partying members and staff, it has been reported.

Commons authorities are now considering introducing a “service agreement” about the appropriate use of workspaces in the Houses of Parliament, according to the Sunday Times.

“It’s the type of behaviour you would expect from students enjoying freshers’ week, not MPs and their staff,” a source told the Sunday Times, “but cleaners are being confronted with vomit and used condoms in offices used by MPs and their staff”…

Columbus Should Be Celebrated; Here’s Why – Matt Walsh

On this wonderful Columbus Day, please be sure to ignore the historically illiterate, preening dimwits who will spend their time screeching about a fictional version of history where Europeans were the first to introduce rape, pillage, and slavery to the universally peaceful and noble inhabitants of the New World.

It would of course be quite impossible for the Spanish to introduce rape, pillage and slavery to many cultures where rape, pillage, and slavery had been utterly commonplace for centuries.

Notice that these self-hating, white-guilt-ridden folks would never suggest that the nightmarish brutality of many Native American tribes outweighs whatever they accomplished. Even the propensity for cannibalism among some tribes must be understood in context, we’re told.

Yet, somehow, the sins of some Europeans settlers automatically negate what the European explorers achieved and discovered…

Leftist Insanity Update: Columbus, Ohio Has Turned Its Back On Christopher Columbus – Fortune
.

.
The largest U.S. city named after Christopher Columbus has decided against celebrating Columbus Day.

Columbus, Ohio’s mayor’s office said recently that it will be open for business and will not observe Columbus Day. Instead, the city will close its offices on Veterans Day on November 12, according to a report from a local NBC News affiliate. It’s likely the first time in the city’s history that it hasn’t observed Columbus Day, a spokesperson for the mayor told NBC News.

Columbus Day, which is being observed today, has proven to be one of the more controversial holidays in recent years. Many cities, including Los Angeles and now Columbus, among others, have either stopped observing the holiday or changed it to Indigenous Peoples Day…

University Lecturer Under Fire For Saying Muslims Commit Terror Attacks – Frontpage

A lecturer at the UK’s Lincoln University, Michael Blackburn, has been accused of “Islamophobic” tweets, and the predictable controversy has ensued.

Blackburn has deactivated his Twitter account, but that isn’t enough for the slavering academic mob – they want his head, just as they want the head of anyone and everyone who dares to say anything that even comes close to the truth about the jihad threat.

According to the Lincoln Tab, Blackburn is not a one-time offender, but a habitual criminal: “Between 2012-2018 Michael Blackburn, who teaches English at Lincoln University, tweeted a series of Islamophobic and anti-feminist tweets.

One said: ‘If the left hadn’t told me the EDL were the real threat I would have carried on thinking it was machete-wielding, Koran-quoting Muslims.’ More recently in 2017, the English lecturer said: ‘I know the media haven’t told us but I suspect these terror attacks were carried out by Muslims because of Islam.’”…

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket executed its first on-land touchdown on the West Coast tonight after sending Argentina’s SAOCOM 1A satellite into orbit, putting on a show punctuated by a sonic boom for Southern California.

After a trouble-free countdown, the two-stage rocket blasted off right on time at 7:21 p.m. PT from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base, leaving a post-sunset contrail glowing in the cloudless skies above.

Minutes after launch, the rocket’s second stage separated from the first-stage booster and continued rising spaceward. The booster, meanwhile, relit its engines to maneuver itself for the return trip to SpaceX’s landing zone, not far from the launch pad…

Justice Brett Kavanaugh Gets To Work With All-Female Law Clerk Staff – Washington Times

Newly confirmed Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh jumped into work with his team of all-female law clerks. The group of four women prepped with their new boss before he joined the Supreme Court on Tuesday, as it begins the second week of its term.

Only one clerk, Kim Jackson, worked with Justice Kavanaugh in the past. The other three – Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy and Sara Nommensen – are new hires but previously worked for appeals court judges appointed during Republican presidencies.

The group fulfills a promise then-Judge Kavanaugh made during the confirmation processes to hire an all-female law clerk team. He is the first on the Supreme Court to have a team of all-female law clerks, The New York Times reported Sunday night.

Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate with a narrow 50-48 margin on Saturday after a bitter and hard-fought political fight over the nomination and sexual assault allegations. He was sworn in Saturday night by Chief Justice John G. Roberts…

Interpol Chief Reported Missing Resigns Amid Beijing Investigation – The Independent

The missing Interpol president Meng Hongwei has resigned as the agency’s president. The news comes hours after Chinese authorities said Mr Meng was under investigation for unspecified violations of the law.

Mr Meng disappeared 12 days ago after he went to China for a work visit. His wife, Grace Weng, responded to the news by calling it “political ruin and fall!”.

“I can’t believe because the rule of law (in) China is his lifelong pursuit,” she wrote in a text message to the AP.

The news of Mr Meng’s resignations came hours after Mr Meng’s wife said that he sent her an emoji of a knife before his disappearance. Ms Meng said she believes that sending the image was her husband’s way of trying to tell her that he was in danger.

She also said that four minutes before her husband shared the image, he sent a message saying “wait for my call”…

The far-right Brazilian populist Jair Bolsonaro has secured a resounding victory in the first-round of his country’s presidential election, but fallen just short of the majority required to avoid a second-round run-off.

After a campaign as improbable and electrifying as any Brazilian telenovela – although infinitely more consequential for the future of one of the world’s largest and most diverse democracies – Bolsonaro secured 46.93% of votes – with 94% of all votes counted.

The second-placed candidate, the leftist Workers’ party Fernando Haddad, won 28% of the vote, according to Brazil’s superior electoral court, the TSE. Behind him came the Democratic Labor party’s Ciro Gomes with 12.5%…

Kavanaugh Confirmed To Supreme Court Despite Vile Democrat Smear Campaign – Fox News

The Senate voted Saturday to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, marking the end to one of the most rancorous confirmation fights in modern times and securing a rightward shift on the nation’s highest court.

The chamber voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh, mostly along party lines, after a weeklong FBI probe helped settle concerns among most wavering senators about the sexual assault allegations that nearly derailed his nomination and led to a dramatic second hearing.

Saturday’s roll call marked the tightest successful Supreme Court confirmation vote in over 100 years, closer than even that of Clarence Thomas who similarly faced sexual misconduct allegations.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. was the sole Democrat to vote “yes.” Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, was a “no,” but voted “present” as a courtesy to Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., who was attending his daughter’s wedding in Montana…
