Sexual Harassment in Hillary and Bernie Campaign Organizations

Workers on Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders Campaigns Claim Sexual Harassment

by Adam Shaw17 Nov 20175,868
Campaign workers on the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders Democratic 2016 presidential campaigns alleged in a report published Friday that they were harassed while campaigning for their respective candidates and that the campaigns failed to address the claims properly — the latest sexual misconduct revelations to rock the Democratic Party.

Lilian Adams, a Clinton campaign worker, and Zoey Jordan Salsbury, who worked for the Sanders primary campaign, both told HuffPost that they were sexually harassed by fellow campaign workers and that the campaigns were “ill-equipped” to cope.

Adams, who relocated to Colorado to work for the campaign as a paid organizer, said she was subject to homophobic remarks (Adams is bisexual) which went on to comments about her body and attempts to force her into one-on-one situations and get her to drink alcohol. Adams, then 19, said her harasser also encouraged her not to wear bras.

While her abuser was eventually fired months after Adams first complained to superiors in June, he was reportedly later rehired in October to work on the campaign for a different state party, leaving her disillusioned. Clinton made the fair-and-equal treatment of women a central part of her campaign as the first woman to win the presidential nomination for a major political party.

“You have a lot of young passionate people who want to help change the world through Democratic politics,” Adams said. “Older Democratic operatives see this passion and exploit it, putting us in an extremely stressful and unhealthy work environment.”

However, she said she did not blame Clinton herself:

“When I criticize the Hillary campaign, I am not criticizing her,” she told HuffPost. “She was actually a source of inspiration during the hard days.”

Salsbury, who worked as a volunteer as president of American University Students for Bernie, told HuffPost a campaign intern made unwanted advances, but the campaign had no structure to deal with issues among volunteers. In her account, she blasted “a culture that didn’t discuss office policies with volunteers or make it clear that harassment wasn’t tolerated.” She was 18 at the time of the alleged harassment.

She said she was contacted by a Sanders campaign lawyer this week, but the conversation made her uncomfortable, treating her as if she was a “roadblock” to a possible 2020 run for the Vermont socialist.

“It firmly felt like the kind of call you make when you’re trying to feel out if someone has the interest and/or standing to bring a lawsuit,” she said.

Clinton aides did not respond to HuffPost, while Sanders told the outlet he does “not tolerate sexual harassment” in his Senate office or on his campaigns. However, his office admitted that volunteers were not given information on detailing harassment reporting process and that that will change in the future.

The allegations are the latest sexual misconduct claims to rock the Democratic Party and come a day after a picture emerged of Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) groping a journalist on a two-week USO tour in 2006. The journalist, Leeann Tweeden, also claimed that before that picture Franken had kissed her during a skit rehearsal without her consent.

Franken apologized for his actions, although he said he remembers the rehearsal differently to Tweeden. Franken called for the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate his actions after coming under heavy fire from both Republicans and Democrats.

CAA Agent Accused of Sexual Assault

CAA [Creative Artists Agency LLC] Sued Over Agent's Alleged Sexual Assault of a Client

In June, Mann says Mitchell told her he needed to come to her home to give her a "present." When he arrived, he said he needed to take a shower and then came out of the bathroom in a towel. Despite her shock, Mann says Mitchell then sat on her love seat and talked to her about entertainment executives and projects before grabbing the back of her head and forcing her to perform oral sex. Afterward, he got dressed and told her they would "talk later."

Then, in August, Mann says Mitchell demanded she come to a late-night event to discuss a contract. Throughout the night, she says, he urged her to consume "drink after drink." He then told her he needed to speak with her inside his car about a project she was up for and told her he wanted to book a trip with her for her birthday. Mann says she told him she only wanted a professional relationship with him and reminded him that he had a wife and children. This upset him, according to the complaint, and he again grabbed her head and forced her to perform oral sex before she escaped the vehicle, crying.

In September, Mann says she met with Mitchell at SkyBar in West Hollywood. Later that night, the actress claims she woke up in her own bed with no memory of what had happened and with Mitchell laying next to her, naked, and pulling her on top of him.

Mann says she reported the incidents to CAA's human-resources department on Oct. 13, but representatives of the company refused to meet with her. She also claims the company's sexual-harassment and assault training for agents is "woefully inadequate" or nonexistent.

"Moreover, in response to Ms. Mann’s statement to CAA that she feared for her safety in light of Defendant MITCHELL’s conduct, his ability to find her, and his repeated attempts to be in close physical proximity to her, CAA coldly divorced itself from the matter, refused to take any action, and advised Plaintiff in no uncertain terms that she would have to be solely responsible for her own safety," writes attorney Paul Philips in the complaint. "CAA’s position on this matter constituted a perpetuation of its policy of allowing and permitting its agents to engage in wrongful and unlawful conduct unchecked."

Florida Democratic Party chair apologizes after 6 women complain of 'demeaning' behavior

TALLAHASSEE — Six former Florida Democratic Party staffers and consultants say that current party Chairman Stephen Bittel has created an unprofessional workplace environment for women that includes persistent inappropriate comments, leering at young women and even inviting them on his private jet.

The women, who were reached independently by POLITICO and insisted on anonymity out of fear for their jobs, said Bittel never inappropriately touched or threatened them. But he made them feel so uneasy that they didn’t want to be alone with him due to his body language, suggestive remarks and even the breast-shaped stress squeeze-ball he has been known to keep on his desk.

Depending on the circumstance and the person discussing Bittel, they said he would make references about women cooking dinner, showing their breasts, their age, whether they wanted to ride on his plane, come to his hotel room or if they thought he was attractive.

This Week in Silly

Six Dems Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Trump
Even Pelosi agrees that this is useless.

What Is The Difference Between These?

Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Bill Cosby, Louis CK, Al Franken, Roy Moore, Anthony Weiner, Harvey Weinstein, George HW Bush.

The difference is that Bill Clinton, Louis CK, Anthony Weiner, Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, GWH Bush all either admitted to or were caught out in their offenses, while Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, and Roy Moore deny the accusations.

So Cosby, Trump, and Moore are "he said, she said" situations which require analysis of both sides of the issue.

And that means that assigning "Truth" to the accusers is logically false, legally a violation of "presumption of innocence", and a blatant indication of the moral morass in which the political and media hyenas live and play.

The accusers of Moore are self-righteously attempting to disrupt a local election by offering their condemnations in a political war, not a civil discourse of right or wrong based on actual fact and empirical evidence. Now the accusers of Moore find that they must, in the name of equity, either hyena howl at their own abusers and take them down as they wish to do to Moore, OR they must admit to their own egregious behavior in their mob attack on Moore, who deserves at least a fair hearing and a logical analysis of the accusations and the accusers.

The accusers of Moore are not likely to, en mass, admit to their own foul behavior. So the Leftist icons, Clinton, Franken, Cosby will most likely be sacrificed to the Self-Righteous "believe the women" meme that they helped create. Swarming sharks sometimes eat their own. The Left runs as a mob, albeit controlled by their own Narrative; the mob will devour anyone that deviates, or even worse, illuminates the hypocrisy of Leftism.

So two decades after the fact, the Left will devour Bill Clinton. That's two decades of total hypocrisy, logical and moral and political.

Dems’ ‘reckoning’ with Bill’s sexual offenses is the final nail in the Clintons’ coffin

9. Cathy Heller:

Trump made the rounds greeting members of his club. When he stopped at their table, Heller recalled, and her mother-in-law introduced her, she stood and extended her hand.

“He took my hand, and grabbed me, and went for the lips,” she claimed.

Alarmed, she said she leaned backwards to avoid him and almost lost her balance. “And he said, ‘Oh, come on.’ He was strong. And he grabbed me and went for my mouth and went for my lips.” She turned her head, she claims, and Trump planted a kiss on the side of her mouth. “He kept me there for a little too long,” Heller said. “And then he just walked away.”

“I was angry and shaken,” she continued. “He was pissed. He couldn’t believe a woman would pass up the opportunity.” She added that he seemed to feel “entitled” to kiss her.

The Guardian heard accounts that matched Heller’s from two other people: Susan Klein, the friend who was emailing with Heller, and a relative seated at the table with Heller that day. The relative, who declined to be named for fear of retaliation, recalled that Heller sat back down with a stunned look on her face.
Trump legal response:
"The reality is this: for the media to wheel out a politically motivated Democratic activist with a legal dispute against this same resort owned by Mr Trump..."
A Leftist with something to gain by badgering Trump. (I think that being a Hillary supporter is tantamount to supporting abject corruption).

He made those comments “as though I was an object rather than a person,” she said, reading from a document. “He then walked up to me and reached his right arm and grabbed my right arm. Then his hand touched the right inside of my breast. I was in shock. I flinched. ‘Don’t you know who I am? Don’t you know who I am?’ That’s what he said to me.”
Sounds as if his hand brushed her breast, possibly as he was turning her arm loose. More info needed. Where exactly is the "inside" of the "breast" located?

12. Jessica Drake, Porn Star
Claim: Trump hugged and kissed her, non-consensually. Trump offered her $10k plus use of his private jet after inviting her to his room for dinner, and she refused.

Although she rejects cultural moral standards, she does have a scruple. After 300 porn movies (reminder, she was paid $ for sex with various people) she insists on "consent" for sex acts. That's fine. But Trump isn't accused of non-consensual sex (rape), he is accused of a non-consensual hug and kiss. So her accusation, even if true, doesn't rise to the violation of her own scruples. How, then, is she abused, judging by her own standards? Well, she isn't using her own standards here, she is using the cultural standards which she rejects in her personal and professional life. Why would she do that? Simple. Either she hates Trump for reasons other than she claims, or she wants the free publicity that Gloria Allred gets for her, or both. After all, she goes by the appellation, "Wicked".

Franken; Part2

Melanie Morgan: After TV appearance, Al Franken harassed me too

Exclusive to the Media Equalizer
With additional reporting from Martin Walsh

Immediately raising questions about double-standards in the media and on Capitol Hill, a Los Angeles radio news anchor today accused Senator Al Franken (D-MN) of sexually assaulting her.

Now, Media Equalizer Co-Founder Melanie Morgan has come forward as well, recounting her own experience with the onetime comedian, liberal radio host and activist. Morgan’s disturbing encounter was sparked by daring to disagree with Franken during an August, 2000 edition of ABC’s Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.

Earlier, a bombshell report published by KABC on-air personality Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of kissing and groping her without her consent while she was asleep.

Shockingly, Tweeden even provided a photo as evidence, which shows Franken with his hands on her breasts while he smiles for the camera.

Tweeden said the sexual assault occurred in December 2006, when they were both on a USO Tour to support and entertain U.S. soldiers.

“It wasn’t until I was back in the U.S. and looking through the CD of photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one,” Tweeden wrote about the photo on in her KABC article.

“I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated,” she wrote. “How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny?”

Tweeden said Franken had written a skit in which he would kiss Tweeden, where she said she “agreed to play along.”

“When I saw the script, Franken had written a moment when his character comes at me for a ‘kiss’. I suspected what he was after, but I figured I could turn my head at the last minute, or put my hand over his mouth, to get more laughs from the crowd,” she wrote.

Tweeden wrote that Franken insisted that they rehearse the kiss several times before the show, which she said made her “uncomfortable.”

“He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth,” she wrote.

“I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time,” she added.

According to Newsweek, Franken has since released a statement saying he didn’t recall the incident.

“I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann. As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasn’t. I shouldn’t have done it,” he said in a statement.

In response to the disturbing allegations made against Franken, Media Equalizer and Media Equality Project Co-Founder Melanie Morgan has come forward to recall her own frightening encounter, sparked by a seemingly-mundane and even obscure topic of political disagreement.

Morgan, who was a ABC Radio talk show host for KSFO / San Francisco at the time, appeared August 19, 2000 on ABC’s late night show Politically Incorrect.

She was joined by Franken, William Baldwin, and then-Colorado Lt. Governor Joe Rogers on the panel.

Morgan and Franken had a dispute over the OMB’s budget numbers.

“I was invited and unaware of who his guests were going to be that night. I’ve since learned that though few know this, Al Franken was actually a writer for the show,” Morgan said.

“I made a statement about the budget numbers, Franken challenged me, I challenged him back. It was about spending priorities, actually just a mundane discussion. But he obsessed over it.”

After the show, Morgan said Franken wouldn’t leave her alone, insisting on continuing the argument.

“He approached me backstage, angrily called me out on those numbers and insisted he would prove he was right. He wouldn’t leave me alone, he kept following me. As a woman, his presence and proximity to me felt very threatening and intimindating.

“I didn’t realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.

“He approached Carol, the show’s producer and demanded my home phone number, which was a clear violation of network protocol. I had thought that was the end of the story and was shocked when he started calling my home, badgering me repeatedly.

“I became fearful and called Carol to complain and asked her to tell him to back off. But he made another call after that. I thought that he might end up stalking me at my home in Northern California, it was that bad.

“By the third phone call I was outraged and terrified, as he is really disturbed,” Morgan recounted.

Morgan said Franken finally left her alone, but only after she pushed back and threatened “to call the police and make a report that he was harassing me.”

To this day, she says she is haunted by it: “I never forgot that experience and it informed me of his lack of character and obsessive personality. I believe every word Leann wrote.”

With many calling on Republican Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore to step aside following claims of sexual misconduct from decades ago, will Franken be asked to resign as senator?

“I will happily testify before the Senate Ethics Committee, should a hearing be held regarding Franken’s behavior,” Morgan added.

If They Try To Unseat Moore...

...They will have to unseat Franken, too. And who else will get called out?

Most interesting time in politics, EVAH!

Busted: Al Franken, in Color Selfie

Sen. Al Franken, accused of sexual harassment from 2006, apologizes and agrees to an ethics investigation

Sen. Al Franken apologized Thursday after a Los Angeles radio show anchor said that he had forcibly kissed her and later groped her on a 2006 USO tour, and said that he would “gladly cooperate” with an Ethics Committee investigation into his actions.

“I respect women. I don’t respect men who don’t,” said Franken, who joined the Senate in 2009 after a career as a comedian. “And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed.”

Leeann Tweeden, a news anchor on KABC’s “McIntyre in the Morning,” said in a post on the station’s website Thursday that Franken had written a skit for the USO tour in which they kissed, and he demanded that they rehearse the scene.

After Franken aggressively kissed her, Tweeden said, “I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time. … I felt disgusted and violated.”

Tweeden said she found out later, from a CD of photographs taken of the tour, that Franken had groped her while she was sleeping on the plane ride from the Mideast to the United States. It is not clear from the photo whether Franken touched her, but Tweeden said he had.

“I couldn’t believe it. He groped me without my consent while I was asleep,” she said.

Franken: Sad.

Trump's Accusers; Part 1

According to Leftist cant, female accusers cannot be challenged. Apparently the Left believes that females are all 100% innocent of any and all wrong-doing. After all: Hillary.

That is not accepted here. There is a tsunami of sex-abuse accusations from Hollywood to Congress to cultural elites. Many of those who are accused have admitted it, or at least have definitive evidence against them (e.g. video). Some are merely he said/she said imponderables.

Are the accusations against Trump imponderables? Here I accumulate data from the internet (I know, I know) regarding the accusers, who are either legit, or have ulterior motives.

1. Jill Harth:
Woman who accused Donald Trump of trying to rape her and turn her into his 'sex slave' says she would now vote for him

Jill Harth filed a lawsuit in 1997 claiming Donald Trump tried to rape her

Now the businesswoman says she would vote for the Republican hopeful

Her suit claimed Trump repeatedly sexually assaulted her in 1992 and 1993

She alleged that he touched her 'intimate parts' and 'forcibly kissed and fondled' her in Ivanka Trump's bedroom in Mar-a-Lago

Once she was so disgusted by his advances that she vomited, she claimed

Ms Harth dropped the lawsuit just weeks after filing it - at around the same time her former husband and Trump settled a separate dispute

Trump spokesman said claims in the dismissed lawsuit were 'nonsensical'

Looks more like a blackmail move against Trump, to me.

2. Now for Ms Taggart:
Trump accuser says he kissed her twice
"I had excused it. I've been through a lot worse with guys since then," Taggart said.
When asked if she was coming forward to aid the Clinton campaign, Taggart replied: "Not one bit," and said she was not planning on voting for either candidate
Two observations. First, Trump kissed her unexpectedly. Twice. That violates the current ethos that all conversation and contact must be preceded by a written contract with explicit descriptions of the intent and action to be expected, for every contact which is made. Not sure if it must be notarized. Trump is guilty.

3. Now for Ms Crooks:
BUSTED! Fake Trump Accuser Rachel Crooks is LYING According to Family and Friends
OK, then.

4. Next up, Jessica Leeds:
Gilberthorpe Claims He Was on the Plane With Leeds & Trump & Never Saw Anything Inappropriate

5. Well, then, how about Mindy McGillivray:
McGillivray told the Post that she has a criminal record, which includes traffic violations and two felony arrests. She received probation when she was 17 for breaking into a school. In 2012, she had a DUI and was also charged with child neglect
McGillivray says that she is not a registered Democrat or Republican and wanted Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic nomination. Now, she will vote for Clinton.
All of a sudden I felt a grab, a little nudge. I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct,' she told the newspaper. 'I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly.'

Trump Accuser Said He Abusively ‘Nudged’ Her at a Concert That Never Happened
…Critical details of McGillivray’s story don’t add up.

McGillivray claims that when she was nudged in 2003, Trump and his wife Melania were engaged. But a quick Google search proves this is false: Trump proposed to Melania in April 2004. Why didn’t the Palm Beach Post or McGillivray check this obvious detail?

Perhaps because they never bothered to verify a Ray Charles concert at Mar-A-Lago even happened on January 24, 2003. A Getty Images search shows Trump and Melania posing with Ray Charles at Mar-A-Lago … in a photo by Davidoff Photos Studio, created on January 1, 2003, more than three weeks before McGillivray claimed she was “grabbed” at a Ray Charles concert. A Ray Charles concert chronology shows that on January 23, a Ray Charles concert in Seattle was canceled, but nothing was scheduled for January 24.
OK, a far Leftist with a felony record, and detail issues. A "nudge"? Really? Bumping someone is "sexual assault"?

6. Who's next? OK it's Natasha Stoynoff:
Revealed: 6 People Who Corroborate Natasha Stoynoff's Story of Being Attacked by Donald Trump
Six "corroborators"? That's odd because she said Trump attacked her when they were alone in a room:
Natasha Stoynoff: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
“We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us,” she writes. “I turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat.”

The author says that she tried to unpin herself from Trump, and he finally let her go when his butler interrupted. She goes on to recount how she felt incredibly violated and how she was afraid to say anything because a man with so much power might try to discredit her or sue her publication.
It is demonstrably false that six other people can corroborate this story. So. What's the butler say?

7. And now Kristin Anderson:
She Says Trump Reached Up Her Skirt and ‘Did Touch My Vagina’

Her recollections of the details beyond Trump’s grab of her genital area are hazy. She said she does not recall the group of friends she was with, and it was only through research that her memory was jogged about the actual nightclub — The China Club — where the groping took place.
“He was so distinctive looking — with the hair and the eyebrows,” she told Tumulty. “I mean, nobody else has those eyebrows.”
So. Not sure about a. the people she was with; b. the location; c. the year; but identified Trump by the eyebrows. Really.

Too Funny (and Sad): Hillary Says...

Hillary: Calls for Investigation Into Me ‘Personally Offensive’ – It Would Be ‘Abuse of Power’ Like In a Dictatorship

Hillary said, “I regret deeply that this appears to be the politicization of the Justice Department and our justice system. This Uranium One story has been debunked countless times by members of the press, by independent experts. It is nothing but a false charge that the Trump administration is trying to drum up in order to avoid attention being directed at them. I mean, even Trey Gowdy, somebody who’s hardly a fan of mine, said that there doesn’t seem to be the basis for a special counsel. Of course, there isn’t.”

She continued that it is “personally offensive that they would do this. But taking myself out of it, this is such an abuse of power, and it goes right at the rule of law. … And if they sent a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have that we can trust our justice system.
So let's see. The person who is responsible for the investigation of Trump based on paid-for allegations created ad hoc just for the purpose of getting her elected... is offended that she has gotten caught taking bribes and selling American uranium to Russia (you know, "OMG! Russia!").

Of course it wouldn't take a special prosecutor. Any garden variety prosecutor who is not corrupt should suffice. Anyone else but a Clinton would be in Rikers Island prison now.

Democrats: They Knew and Did NOTHING

Not even an "open secret": it has been very open and obvious for decades.
Liberals’ Sudden Concern About Bill Clinton’s Behavior Is Cynical And Self-Serving
It takes no courage to retroactively condemn the former president.

By David Harsanyi
November 15, 2017

In the past few days a number of notable liberals have decided to take allegations of sexual assault against former president Bill Clinton seriously. Let’s just say that discarding the Clintons when they’re no longer politically useful to retroactively grab the higher moral ground isn’t exactly an act of heroism. But if we’re going to re-litigate history, let’s get it right.

“That so many women have summoned the courage to make public their allegations against Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, and Bill O’Reilly—or that many have come to reconsider some of the claims made against Bill Clinton—represents a cultural passage,” says David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker (my italics). It takes plenty of courage to face powerful men with sexual assault allegations. But how much courage needs to be summoned to “reconsider” Bill Clinton’s behavior now, more than 20 years after we first learned about it? Zero. Democrats pay no political price for going after the former president, nor will Clinton face any consequences.

In The New York Times, Michelle Goldberg spends around 75 percent of her column titled “I Believe Juanita” rationalizing why it was okay not to believe Juanita Broaddrick, who credibly accused Bill Clinton of rape decades ago. You won’t be surprised to learn that Goldberg faults conservatives because their hardball politics and conspiracy-mongering provoked skepticism among liberals — excuses that will be awfully familiar to anyone following the justification of Roy Moore’s supporters.

One problem with Goldberg’s contention is that the Broaddrick allegation was uncovered by NBC News, not Richard Scaife. Well, specifically, it was uncovered by NBC News after the network sat on the story throughout the impeachment proceedings against the president. According to the network, the story had to be put through an arduous factchecking process that included figuring out where Clinton had been the day of the alleged rape — something that had been worked out in a few days’ time.

Then again, the myth that most of the media was enthusiastic about uncovering damaging stories relating to Clinton’s background persists today. The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times, for example, both had their hands on Broaddrick’s rape allegation in 1992 but dropped the story. It’s also worth remembering that Michael Isikoff was fired after fighting with his editors at The Washington Post after they dragged their feet on the Paula Jones story in 1994. Again in 1998, Isikoff’s reporting on Monica Lewinsky for Newsweek was shelved until The Drudge Report brought it to the public’s attention. Only after that point did the reporting take off.

In any event, Broaddrick’s story had a short shelf life despite the fact that five witnesses claimed she had told them about the rape right after it happened. There were other credible sexual assault allegations against Bill Clinton that went largely ignored. In his book “Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America,” published in 1996, Roger Morris, who was hardly a right-wing conspiracy theorist, reported:

A young woman lawyer in Little Rock claimed that she was accosted by Clinton when he was attorney general and that when she recoiled he forced himself on her, biting and bruising her. Deeply affected by the assault, the woman decided to keep it all quiet for the sake of her hardwon career and that of her husband. When the husband later saw Clinton at the 1980 Democratic Convention, he delivered a warning. ‘If you ever approach her,’ he told the governor, ‘I’ll kill you.’ Not even seeing fit to deny the incident, Bill Clinton sheepishly apologized and duly promised never to bother her again.

For those who followed the Clinton stories in those years, the “biting and bruising” will sound familiar. The woman was never found by reporters.

Yet, however reluctant editors might have been in moving forward with these stories, the fact is that most of them were ultimately brought to the public’s attention by established news organizations, not shady right-wing outlets. Still, Democrats weren’t merely skeptical of these women, they often treated them with disdain and smeared them for political expediency.

Enabling Serial Sexual Perversions: The Massive Hypocrisy of Saturday Night Live

For the Left there is no hypocrisy, because there is no moral grounding. If there is no right, then there is no wrong, either.
Nolte – Alec Baldwin and Louis C.K.: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Is Part of the Problem

On May 15, 2015, Gawker published a story detailing comedian Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct toward women. On May 16, 2015, Louis C.K. was allowed to host Saturday Night Live. In June of 2016, comedian and television icon Roseanne Barr called out Louis C.K. over his sexual misconduct. In April of 2017, Louis C.K. was again allowed to host Saturday Night Live.

The rumors about C.K. masturbating in front of women without their consent, rumors that were confirmed last week by Louis C.K. himself, have been talked about in comedy circles for nearly a decade. Moreover, there was a culture within these circles where the women feared being blacklisted if they spoke up.

Nevertheless, while Saturday Night Live lectured America about the war on women and President Trump’s “disqualifying” locker room talk, they welcomed C.K. as a guest host, which enabled his behavior by enhancing his power and reputation.

In May of 2007, Alec Baldwin attacked his own 11 year-old daughter as a “pig.”

In December of 2011, Baldwin lashed out at a female airline staffer and was escorted off the plane.

In April of 2012, Baldwin declared a female journalist a “nutty bitch.”

Baldwin’s ex-wife Kim Basinger claims Baldwin was verbally abusive toward her.

In just the last few weeks, Baldwin has admitted to being a sexist bully, admitted he heard rumors about Rose McGowan’s alleged rape at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, and then victim-blamed McGowan for taking a settlement.

Despite all of this, not to mention countless instances of the very worst kind of homophobia, Alec Baldwin is currently the biggest star on Saturday Night Live.

This past weekend, though, this very same Saturday Night Live, the powerful enabler of a serial-exhibitionist masturbator and a homophobic, sexist bully, mocked the people of Alabama with bigoted stereotypes over the Judge Roy Moore scandal.

Saturday Night Live has not only ceded all of its moral authority on the issue of sexual misconduct, the left-wing show continues to be part of the problem, a firmly entrenched institution within Harveywood willing to ignore indefensible behavior for money, ratings, and partisan point-scoring.

Merle Was "Proud and White and Had a Song to Sing"

This might go good at the next rally...

No, Because: Clinton

While swinging wildly at the Lefty males plus Roy Moore, shouldn't they address the Biggest Lefty Rapist as well? Except that rapist is protected by a death squad. And it really doesn't make that much difference because they'll all apologize, rehab in luxury for a couple of weeks, and then be back on the prowl, all forgiven by the cognoscenti (accomplices and abettors). We know full well from Polanski, Woody Allen and Clinton that all Lefties get a pass, because after all, no truth = no morality.

Lamborghini with Body-Super Capacitor

Lamborghini creates world's first 'self-healing' sports car
Super Capacitors have existed since at least the 1990s, when I first heard of them. So in its limited understanding, perhaps the hype is correct, so far as the use of that single component is concerned. If it is true, the use of the body of the vehicle to host a huge super cap is somewhere between brilliant and potentially deadly. What happens when the body incurs more than just a crack fracture in a crash? Shorting out such a huge charge container might be... um... spectacular/fearsome. We'll see. If it is self-driving too, then that might be soon.

The Perfect Shot

One of Trump’s tweets read:
“Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me ‘old,’ when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat?’ Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!”
Not just a perfect riposte by keeping the upper (moral) hand, but designed to keep Kim Jong-un off-kilter, and emotional. In other words, more prone to mistakes. Not to mention funny as hell.

An insult buried within a denial of being insulting. Brillig.

CNN Management to Employees: Destroy Brazile

CNN is already facing other racial discrimination lawsuits. Now they're purposely trying to take down Donna Brazile.
Another CNN Race Problem: Employees Directed to Destroy Donna Brazile’s Credibility
CNN is pointing out that Donna Brazile gave the list of questions that Hillary would be asked, to Hillary's campaign.

Well, sure. When a Lefty tries to tell the truth, all the dirty laundry is dumped on them - by their own Lefty buddies. And that certainly does provide a cognitive barrier to believing anything a Lefty says, ever. But the circular firing squad is always interesting to observe, from a distance.

Brazile is a twofer: a black woman. So there is a possibility of a lawsuit regarding both racism and sexism in CNN's attack on her.

Still the most interesting time in politics, great for the popcorn industry.
