Steven Colbert and his writer, Arial Dumas, prove they are not worth watching

Something (other than the speech noted below) tells me that she gives herself too much credit.
In contrast, Justice Kavanaugh proves his worth as a peacemaker
Although the things done by Democrats and their minions in the Senate chambers may have severely tested the patience of Brett Kavanaugh, Justice Kavanaugh showed a willingness to become the impartial justice that conservatives expect when he said:
The Senate confirmation process was contentious and emotional. That process is over. My focus now is to be the best Justice I can be. I take this office with gratitude and no bitterness. On the Supreme Court, I will seek to be a force for stability and unity. My goal is to be a great Justice for all Americans and for all of America. I will work very hard to achieve that goal.
I was not appointed to serve one party or one interest, but to serve one nation. America’s Constitution and laws protect every person of every belief and every backgrounds. Every litigant in the Supreme Court can be assured that I will listen to their arguments with respect and an open mind. Every American can be assured that I will be an independent and impartial Justice devoted to equal justice under law.
Although the Senate confirmation process tested me, as it has tested others, it did not change me. My approach to judging remains the same. A good judge must be an umpire, a neutral and impartial decider who favors no litigant or policy. A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. A judge must interpret statutes as written. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.
In the wake of the Senate confirmation process, my approach to life also remains the same. I will continue to heed the message of Matthew 25. I will continue to volunteer to serve the least fortunate among us. I will continue to coach, teach, and tutor. I will continue to strive to be a good friend, colleague, husband, and dad.
As in the past, our nation today faces challenges and divisions. But I am an optimist. I live on the sunrise side of the mountain. I see the day that is coming, not the day that is gone. I am optimistic about the future of America and the future of our independent judiciary, the crown jewel of our constitutional republic.
As a Justice on the Supreme Court, I will always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.
This not only shines as an example of a jurist, but also reminds Christians that we must forgive those who have trespassed against us.

Excuses from the Portland Police Department
According to Portland, Oregon local CBS affiliate KOIN, the reason that the Portland police did not protect the populace from Antifa was as follows:
PPB Sgt. Chris Burley said officers were monitoring the protest. Asked why police didn’t step in when protesters went into the streets and affected traffic, Burley said the bureau “weighs the ability for people to gather to practice their First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and assembly, as well as the impact it places on the rest of the Portland community. Throughout this event the police bureau was monitoring the crowd.”

“The Police Bureau respects the rights of community members to practice their First Amendment Right to free speech as well the desire of community members to remain safe while traveling and living in the area where free speech events occur” Sgt. Burley, Portland Police PIO.

Portland Police want to charge the senior citizen whose car Antifa damaged
In a 10 October 2018 Gateway Pundit post, news on how the Portland PD wants to charge the senior citizen who sped from Antifa attackers comes to light.
As the videos from last weekend’s protest in Portland have gone viral, namely due to the dereliction of duty on the part of the Portland police allowing the violent leftist mob to take over the city, one particular video has caught the attention of police and Multnomah County district attorney Rod Underhill.
The video in question shows a man in a silver car getting caught up in the protest. Apparently fearing for his safety, the man starts to drive through the protest. One genius decides he’s going to jump in front of the car and try to stop it, as other members of the mob converge on the car, shouting obscenities at the driver and beating on his car. The driver eventually made it through, but stopped at the red light up the block. There, the protesters chased him down, smashed a window out in his car, and started threatening him.
Now police are encouraging the protesters to come forward as “victims” so they can charge the driver of the car with crimes. The police refer to the violent thugs as “pedestrians.”

The middle school teacher who encouraged the assassination of a Supreme Court Justice leaves her job
In a 10 October 2018 Fox News article, the employment woes of Ms. Ness have reportedly multiplied.
A Minnesota special education teacher has resigned after she posted a message on Twitter exhorting her followers to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The teacher, identified by multiple social media users and local outlets as Samantha Ness, had been placed on paid administrative leave after the message was widely shared online.
Mark Zuzek, the superintendent of Independent School District 917 in Rosemount, confirmed that an employee whom he did not identify had voluntarily resigned and is no longer employed by the district.
“The actions of the employee did not occur at school, and there were no school devices, equipment, or other school staff involved in the actions,” Zuzek added. “At no time were students or staff in danger.”
The tweet, which read: “So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?” was posted from the account @lookitsSamm on Saturday, hours after the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh, 50-48. The judge was sworn in that same day as the high court’s 114th justice after a bruising confirmation fight highlighted by allegations of sexual misconduct dating back to his high school and college days in the 1980s.
A second tweet from the account, which was later deleted, read: “Brett kavanaugh [sic] will be dealing with death threats for the rest of his life being on the Supreme Court. I doubt my mid-west [sic] ass is a real threat.”
The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that the teacher worked at the Alliance Education Center, which serves students with behavioral and developmental issues and disabilities.
While I don’t like seeing anyone losing their job to a stupid remark on social media, I really recoil at the grammar that a teacher used in these tweets. I certainly hope that this middle school teacher held classes in Japanese, Calculus, Russian, or any subject that does not broach English communication.
