Eric Holder to Democrats: ‘When They Go Low, We Kick Them’

Barack Obama’s former attorney general Eric Holder told a crowd over the weekend that Democrats should “kick” Republicans.

“It is time for us as Democrats to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are,” he told a crowd in Georgia. “Michelle [Obama] always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick them.”

“That’s what this new Democratic Party is about,” Holder said next, while campaigning for Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. “We’re not in this just to make a statement, we’re in this to win.”

Holder seems to be taking a play out of former President Obama’s handbook. In 2008, then-candidate Obama told his supporters: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Democrats have been ramping up calls for intimidation, harassment, and violence over the past couple of months, particularly after Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and confirmation to the Supreme Court. In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton called for liberals to stop being civil until Democrats take control of the House and Senate.

Rand Paul Accuses the Media of Hiding a Key Detail About the GOP Baseball Attacker

By The Blaze. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) made a stunning revelation about what an attacker yelled as he fired on Republican members of Congress playing baseball in Virginia in a harrowing 2017 attack. . .

Paul was speaking on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday when he recalled what the attacker yelled during the violent assault, and made a direct connection to overheated rhetoric from the left.

“I was there at the ball field when Steven Scalise (R-La.) almost died from a very, very angry violent man who was incited really by Rhetoric on the left,” Paul said.

“And this hasn’t been reported enough,” he continued, “when he came on the field with a semi-automatic weapon firing probably close to 200 shots at us, shooting five people and almost killing Steve Scalise, he was yelling ‘this is for healthcare.’” . . .

“So what happens is that when Democrats say ‘get up in their face,’ they need to realize that there are a lot of unstable people out there,” Paul explained. “There are people with anger issues, there are people who are prone to violence.” (Read more from “Rand Paul Accuses the Media of Hiding a Key Detail About the GOP Baseball Attacker” HERE)

Rand Paul: There Will Be an ‘Assassination’ If Left Doesn’t Ratchet Down the Rhetoric

By Fox and Friends. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called for Democrats to tamp down the anti-Trump rhetoric before one of their supporters resorts to violence.

Speaking on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday, Paul said the bitter fight over Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has made him increasingly concerned.

“There is going to be an assassination if this doesn’t ratchet down. The other side needs to really calm the rhetoric down,” he said.

Meantime, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared Tuesday that Democrats “cannot be civil” with Republicans any longer.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. (Read more from “Rand Paul: There Will Be an ‘Assassination’ If Left Doesn’t Ratchet Down the Rhetoric” HERE)

Watch: Crowd Reaction to Trump’s Mention of Feinstein Surprises Everyone

President Donald Trump was speaking about Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and allegations she leaked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s letter during a rally when the crowd began to cheer “lock her up” on Tuesday.

Trump was mocking Feinstein for the way she responded to allegations that she or somebody in her office was responsible for leaking Dr. Ford’s letter to the public by making wild hand gestures and rhetorically asking, “Did we leak?”

“Did we leak?” Trump asked once again, only to answer his own question by shaking his hands and saying, “No! No! No, we didn’t.”

The crowd erupted in laughter before beginning to chant “lock her up,” eliciting a smirk from the president. “I think they’re talking about Feinstein. Can you believe it?” Trump responded in dismay. (Read more from “Crowd Reaction to Trump’s Mention of Feinstein Surprises Everyone” HERE)

Nikki Haley Resigns as UN Ambassador

Nikki Haley has resigned as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Her replacement will have big shoes to fill. Haley fundamentally transformed the U.N. ambassador post while simultaneously securing major geopolitical victories for the United States. She was a widely renowned official in the Trump administration, achieving almost unanimous recognition from conservatives and moderates alike.

In an announcement in the Oval Office Tuesday morning, President Trump confirmed that Ambassador Haley has resigned her post and will be leaving at the end of the year.

During her tenure as U.N. ambassador, Haley oversaw several major U.S. policy shifts. Having developed a reputation for her aggressive, vocal, and passionate defense of the U.S. and its allies, Haley delivered several major victories for U.S. interests.

Ambassador Haley was never afraid to call out China for its hostile behavior. She slammed Russia for empowering the Syrian dictatorship with chemical weapons. She called attention to North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. And Haley took the Iranian regime to task for its worldwide funding and assistance of terrorist groups.

Haley led the fight to end U.S. membership in and funding for the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), a U.N. body with a membership roster of authoritarian nations and Islamic supremacist regimes.

She succeeded in cutting off funding for UNRWA, the U.N. Palestinian refugee body, which has promoted the destruction of Israel and helped to perpetuate Arab-Israeli hostilities.

A staunch defender of the Jewish state, Haley was also a major proponent of moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Israel’s capital city.

Haley acted as a fiercely independent branch of the Trump administration, which sometimes raised red flags in Washington. In September, she wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post condemning her anonymous colleague’s high-profile New York Times piece earlier that week bashing the president. In her Washington Post op-ed, Haley claimed that when she challenges the president, she does it “directly.” This reportedly caused some resentment in the White House, but it’s unclear whether it was the reason for her departure.

Nikki Haley will go down as arguably the most prolific and effective U.S. ambassador to the United Nations ever. She achieved a unique combination of victories. She was perhaps best known for rhetorically taking American adversaries to the woodshed, but Haley also secured major diplomatic and policy victories behind the scenes. Her unapologetic defense of America and its allies was coupled with her ability to effect real, lasting change at the U.N.

What Do Americans Really Think About Columbus Day?

People outside the Columbus fountain near Union Station in Washington, D.C., told The Daily Caller News Foundation what they thought about Columbus, Ohio deciding to stop their celebration of the man their city is named after.

While some believed Columbus Day shouldn’t be celebrated, others defended the tradition and said an Indigenous Peoples Day could be celebrated on another date as well.

Watch: Graham Throws Down the Gauntlet, Challenges Schumer in Fiery Interview

Democrats have already threatened to investigate — or even try to impeach — Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh should they retake control of the House after November’s midterm elections.

On Sunday, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) responded to the news by throwing down a challenge to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). . .

At first, when asked about the threat, made primarily by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) who is the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee, Graham vowed to campaign against his congressional colleagues in the run up to November’s elections, something he said he’s never done before.

“I’ve never campaigned against a colleague in my life. That’s about to change. I’m gonna go throughout this country and let people in these, you know, purple states, red states where Trump won know what I think about this process,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.” . . .

“Here’s my point. This is a list that was compiled in November, but [Trump] actually put it out during the campaign. There are 20-something people on this list. I’m asking Chuck Schumer: name five, name three, name one that would be okay with you,” Graham said.

ISIS Sex Trafficking Victim and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Tells Harrowing Story of What She Endured

By The Blaze. Nadia Murad was living a quiet life in Northern Iraq in 2014 when an unimaginable terror suddenly took it all away. ISIS jihadists kidnapped Murad and forced her into sex trafficking.

Murad, now 25, was recently awarded the 2018 Noble Peace Prize jointly with Congolese gynecologist Denis Mukwege. He is also an activist against sexual violence and specializes in treating women who were raped by rebel forces. Murad received the award for her activism against sex trafficking. . .

Following her year-and-a-half ordeal as a sex trafficking victim, Murad was able to escape while she was being transported out of Iraq. In early 2015, she went to Germany seeking refuge. A few months later, Murad began campaigning to raise awareness about human trafficking, the Guardian reported.

Speaking before a United Nations panel, Murad explained the part of the levity of what she witnessed:

“…the children who died of dehydration fleeing Isis, the families still stranded on the mountain, the thousands of women and children who remained in captivity, and what my brothers saw at the site of the massacre. I was only one of hundreds of thousands of Yazidi victims.”

Nobel Peace Prize: I Was an ISIS Sex Slave. I Tell My Story Because It Is the Best Weapon I Have

By The Guardian. The slave market opened at night. We could hear the commotion downstairs where militants were registering and organising, and when the first man entered the room, all the girls started screaming. It was like the scene of an explosion. We moaned as though wounded, doubling over and vomiting on the floor, but none of it stopped the militants. They paced around the room, staring at us, while we screamed and begged. They gravitated toward the most beautiful girls first, asking, “How old are you?” and examining their hair and mouths. “They are virgins, right?” they asked a guard, who nodded and said, “Of course!” like a shopkeeper taking pride in his product. Now the militants touched us anywhere they wanted, running their hands over our breasts and our legs, as if we were animals. . .

“Calm down!” militants kept shouting at us. “Be quiet!” But their orders only made us scream louder. If it was inevitable that a militant would take me, I wouldn’t make it easy for him. I howled and screamed, slapping away hands that reached out to grope me. Other girls were doing the same, curling their bodies into balls on the floor or throwing themselves across their sisters and friends to try to protect them.

While I lay there, another militant stopped in front of us. He was a high-ranking militant named Salwan who had come with another girl, another young Yazidi from Hardan, who he planned to drop off at the house while he shopped for her replacement. “Stand up,” he said. When I didn’t, he kicked me. “You! The girl with the pink jacket! I said, stand up!” . . .

Attacking Sinjar [in northern Iraq] and taking girls to use as sex slaves wasn’t a spontaneous decision made on the battlefield by a greedy soldier. Islamic State planned it all: how they would come into our homes, what made a girl more or less valuable, which militants deserved a sabaya [sex slave] as incentive and which should pay. They even discussed sabaya in their glossy propaganda magazine, Dabiq, in an attempt to draw new recruits. But Isis is not as original as its members think it is. Rape has been used throughout history as a weapon of war. I never thought I would have something in common with women in Rwanda – before all this, I didn’t know that a country called Rwanda existed – and now I am linked to them in the worst possible way, as a victim of a war crime that is so hard to talk about that no one in the world was prosecuted for committing it until just 16 years before Isis came to Sinjar.

Watch: Baby With Spina Bifida Who Had Surgery Before Birth Now Able to Walk

Doctors told an expectant mom that her son had spina bifida and might never walk. But thanks to his parents’ love and prenatal surgery, adorable toddler Roman Dinkel has become an internet walking sensation.

A video of Roman taking some of his first steps, with the aid of tiny crutches, has gone viral, seen millions of times. Last month the toddler appeared on “Good Morning America” with his mom Whitney, dad Adam, and the family puppy, Maggie. Maggie appears in the eight-second clip, as Roman squeaks, “Look, Maggie! I’m walking!” . . .

Roman was diagnosed with spina bifida, a congenital defect of the spine in which the spinal cord is left exposed through a gap in the backbone, when he was 20 weeks in the womb. His father Adam said on “Good Morning America” that the first option doctors give parents of unborn babies diagnosed with spina bifida is “termination.” But the Dinkels do not believe in it.

“I would never judge a person for making that decision,” mom Whitney told LifeSiteNews. “It is obviously not what we believe. But often times doctors paint a very grim picture of what the life of a child with spina bifida will look like. They say [he’ll have] severe brain damage, will be paralyzed, in pain their whole life, and they make you believe that you will bring them into this world suffering until they die. But those things just aren’t true. That’s outdated information.”

Adam and Whitney decided that the best thing they could do for their son was to have doctors operate on his spine before he was born. (Read more from “Watch: Baby With Spina Bifida Who Had Surgery Before Birth Now Able to Walk” HERE)

Chaos Erupts at the Capitol After Collins Assures Kavanaugh Confirmation

Protesters increased in their aggressive demonstrations on Capitol Hill after Senator Susan Collins (R-Mass.) pushed the Kavanaugh confirmation over the top Friday.

Several instances of the aggressive tactics by angry and frustrated protesters were caught on video and shared on social media.

Protesters drowned out Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) while he was trying to speak to reporters with chants of “shame on you! Shame on you! Shame on you!” Manchin was the only Democrat to indicate that he would vote positively to confirm Kavanaugh. . .

“This is what the U.S. Capitol was like today as I walked to the Senate floor for the vote on Judge Kavanaugh,” Kennedy tweeted.

Many demonstrators were targeting Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who had asked for the Kavanaugh vote to be postponed in order to allow for an FBI investigation.
