The Brew: Pelosi Gets Her Close-Up as Kavanaugh Has a Close-Call
Tune in tonight as Nancy Pelosi stars in the new mini-series Speaker Dearest.
I wonder if there’s enough caffeine in the world to wake up the DOJ and DHS to the pro-abortion violence blanketing the country.
The Thwarted Assassination Attempt on Brett Kavanaugh
The terror campaign unleashed by pro-abortion forces across this land showed up early Wednesday morning at the home of Brett Kavanaugh. An armed man was arrested near Kavanaugh’s home after expressing his desire to kill the justice because of a leaked draft decision suggesting Roe v. Wade will be overturned.
The suspect is 26-year-old Nicholas John Roske of Simi Valley, California.
The arrest comes as a string of 30 attacks and fire-bombings have struck pro-life pregnancy centers and churches in the wake of the leak.
And as Rep. Lee Zeldin noted on The Brian Kilmeade Show, the Democrats are “encouraging confrontation.” This the White House is refusing to condemn … and is, in fact, encouraging protests at the homes of the Justices.
If it was a red hat with a gun and knife arrested outside Sotomayor's residence, it would be only thing on several news stations and Pelosi would be having the Nat. Guard putting the fencing back up around the Capitol.

Nancy Pelosi’s Prime Time J6 Committee Hearings Start Airing Tonight … Bet They Won’t Talk About a New Report on the Capitol Building’s Inept Security Precautions
The Nancy Pelosi partisan production called the January 6 Select Committee prime time hearings kicks off tonight. It’s like one of those lame game shows the networks toss on during the summer so they don’t have to have real programming. Instead of Dancing With Nobodies Over a Tank of Alligators, it’s January 6: The Worst Event in History and It Was All Caused by Donald Trump. Or, Speaker Dearest, for short.
Barbara Jordan, the Texas Democrat who became a national icon for her cool reasoning and somber demeanor during the Watergate hearings, would be rolling over in her grave over this show.

One thing you will not see is any talk of the dismal intelligence and security failures at the U.S. Capitol uncovered by the Capitol Police themselves…
Just the News reports that a secret internal review by the Capitol Police found “widespread ineptitude and inadequate riot squads.” 53 areas of failure were uncovered,
Making abundantly clear that the Capitol Police under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were ill-equipped to defend one of America’s most symbolic and high value institutions two decades after the Sept. 11 attack.
This report was done within a couple months of J6. Why was it kept secret?
The review concluded that the intelligence failure was exacerbated when the new department leadership, installed after Pelosi became House Speaker again, decided to dismantle the department’s open-source intel unit:
“The social media unit was immediately and essentially dismantled under the new leadership. New office reassignments and steering away from the concepts of having subject matter experts may have contributed to the tragedy.” You can read the full “after-action” report here.
Pelosi and D.C.’s mayor blowing off Trump’s suggestion of National Guard troops didn’t help matters.
So go on and enjoy Pelosi’s prime time dramatic presentation to avoid personal responsibility for what happened under her watch. Think I’ll stick to Hallmark Channel movies I’ve seen a dozen times.
Actually, Tucker Carlson, who produced a documentary that examined the real story of what happened January 6 and the important unanswered questions, will be offering up counter programming to the Pelosi narrative.
We’re going to leave the final word on the hearings to the Defensive Coordinator of the Washington Commanders football team, Jack Del Rio.
I can look at images on the TV, people’s livelihoods are being destroyed, businesses are being burned down, no problem. And then we have a dust up at the Capitol, nothing burned down, and we’re going to make that a major deal.

How messed up is our country when a football “Commander” is making more sense about the nation’s security than our top military commanders?
San Francisco Voters Recall Soros-Funded DA Who Let Criminals Run Wild
Soros-funded, criminal-coddling District Attorney Chesa Boudin is out! San Francisco residents voted to recall Boudin Tuesday by a 60%-40% margin. In his two-year reign of terror, Boudin implemented “progressive criminal justice reform” — meaning, in practice, giving thugs the key to the city.
For example, he ended cash bail, decreased incarceration rates, loosened criminal penalties and basically refused to bring cases. Crime skyrocketed, video of massive smash and grabs went viral. The city was turning into a hellhole that even the leftists in San Francisco couldn’t stomach.
Boudin blamed Republicans for his ouster. In a city that, as The Blaze noted, is only 7% Republican.
Boudin is but one of 75 “social justice” prosecutors elected with the help of George Soros’ millions. A new report from the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund claims that Soros, through his assorted front organizations, has spent $40 million in the past decade. This includes friendly-to-criminal prosecutors in Chicago, New York, L.A., Philadelphia, St. Louis, San Antonio and Dallas.
Twitter Planning to Offer Musk the Raw Data on Tweets
Elon Musk has been threatening to walk from his Twitter deal if the social media giant didn’t open up about the presence of fake accounts on the platform. Well, now multiple news sources are reporting that Twitter is going to open up its “firehose” of raw daily Twitter data.
Twitter’s CEO says the company estimates less than 5% of the accounts are spam. Musk tweeted in May his belief the figure is closer to 20%. Ah, but what percentage are mindless automatons?
I’d also love to know just what percentage of tweets blame, insult or reference Donald Trump even when the subject has nothing to do with Trump?
Speaking of Trump, he insisted again he’s never returning to Twitter. Well, not directly. His Truth Social posts get tweeted all over Twitter.
‘I Promise We Will Have a Press Shop. Not Everyone is Leaving.’
In 1814, the British Army set the White House on fire. Even then, people didn’t flee the building like they are under Joe Biden. Three more staffers quit the White House press office in the past couple days, leaving new Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre to quip, “I promise we will have a press shop. Not everyone is leaving.”
Morale is said to be dreadful throughout the White House. They thought they were signing up for West Wing. Instead, it’s Wes Craven.
