Back When Roy Moore Was, You Know... A Democrat...

Let’s All Savor The Democrats’ Pervgate Pain

This scandal poses some unique problems for our liberal friends. The Democrats spent decades telling women how Republicans hate them and now, well, it appears the Democrats like women, just the wrong way, and they like obtaining consent not at all. Pervgate is generating gross revelation after gross revelation, and basically America’s ladies are being asked, “Show me on the doll where the bad party touched you.”

They’re answering, “Everywhere, and also on my houseplants.”


But, of course, thanks to the giant hard left progressive faction within the Democrat Party, they have a problem. The crony centrist Clintonish contingent is perfectly happy to ignore Dem abuse of women because they don’t actually care – it is all a pose. But the prog wing has an incentive to continue to pretend to care about women because their faux outrage is a weapon they can wield in trying to win the party civil war. So now, they have Albatross Franken to deal with – some of the Democrats aren’t going to go along quietly with the usual three-act script that dictates a first act of fake concern, then a second act of fake contrition, and that climaxes with fake consequences. Franken may well be sacrificed on the altar of wokeness.

Gosh, I love blue-on-blue fratricide.

Roy Moore is a pain to the GOP for what he allegedly did back when he was a Democrat, but the Donkeys are doing all they can to neutralize the fallout. Franken and Menendez also provide the GOP with a ready-made response to all those Roy Moore ads the Democrats are slobbering to drop. Stuart Smarmy was dumb enough, and tacky enough to, doggone it, let himself get caught on film doing it. The GOP might be the Party of a Perv, but the Democrats are the Party of a Bunch of Pervs.

Here’s the thing everyone sees clearly now. The Democrats never actually believed all that stuff they shovel about women. It was a pose, a scam, a grift run on the suckers. And now, thanks to the likes of Al Franken being unable to interact successfully with women who are awake, the curtain has been thrown back. What it reveals is a pathetic collection of losers trying to leverage their positions to get a few cheap gropes.

New Mexico is Bullied Into Retaining "Science Facts" Which are Ideology

New Mexico changed references that previously were asserting that evolution, the Age of the Earth, and AGW are "scientific facts".
New Mexico Has Deleted Basic Science Facts From Their Education Standards

References to climate change, the age of the Earth and evolution have been removed

Apparently all Hell broke loose as "scientists" and "educators" and legislators swarmed furiously, demanding the "scientific facts" be restored.

And so they were:
New Mexico Restores Evolution And Climate Change to Education Standards After Scientists Protest


The concept of science as testable empiricism per Bacon, Locke, Newton, Maxwell, Boltzman, Carnot, Joule, Hume, Einstein, Feynman is now merely history, at least as far as the Atheist "science fanboys" are concerned. None of the three concerns - climate change, age of the earth, evolution are empirically testable, and at best are supported by unprovable processes of suspicious applicability.

Climate change is probably not happening, since the concept has required data modifications such as an added slope, a denial of historical data, cherry picked data sources, and questionable measurement methods, fudged data and manipulated measurements (at the cold end) and far insufficient earth coverage. Icons of climate change such as ice melt at the poles and sea level rise don't support the premise. The population of polar bears is increasing. Desertification is not increasing, it is decreasing.

The age of the earth is "determined" by the use of radio-active decay in certain layers or layer substitutes. The decay presumes that the daughter ions of the decay process did not exist at the time of the creation of the layer, an assumption which is not in the least provable nor reasonable to assume. It also assumes a totally continuous and predictable decay from parent to daughter, an assumption that is not only not provable but has known, proven exceptions. All premises for earth's age are indirect, proxy measurements, where the proxies are highly questionable.

Evolution is supported by untestable "Just So Stories" which are hypotheses that not only are not testable, but also change from time to time. Incompatible data is placed into a category called "Problematica" where it is subsequently ignored. Descent is no longer thought to expand species, but under "cladistics theory" descent collapses into "clades" of similar sister groups. The Cambrian Explosion completely deflates the concept of descent from a common ancestor, since all main categories of living things occur at roughly the same geologic time, and none of these categories spawns new, unrelated categories, even over the projected "millions of years". What actually is observed is the elimination of categories of creatures, creatures which first appear fully formed, not partially evolved.

All of these "sciences" are non-empirical, non-Enlightenment, non-testable hypotheses which happen to be useful to Atheism. Atheism and the self-worship of man as the intellectual apogee of the universe is the unprovable religious cant of most "scientists" and sufficient numbers of educators and legislators to save the Materialist Ideology from being called what it is: not actual scientific, objective, provable knowledge.

In fact, Materialism is itself an unprovable premise, one which leads directly to "No Free Will" and when examined is found to be logically non-coherent. That fits well with Atheist ideology.

Apple: Diversity is About Race and Sex and Nothing Else.

Apple fires Diversity Chief for suggesting that intellectual and life diversity is important too.

Apple’s diversity chief is stepping down after only six months on the job — after causing an outcry by saying that being a minority or a woman are not the only criteria for diversity, according to reports.

Denise Young Smith, who was named vice president of diversity and inclusion in May, made controversial comments last month during a One Young World Summit in Bogotá, Colombia.

“There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” the inaugural diversity chief said.

“Diversity is the human experience,” she said, according to Quartz. “I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.”

Her comments appeared to defend Apple’s overwhelmingly white and male leadership at a time when the company’s makeup is markedly uneven.

The 20-year Apple veteran, who previously served as the company’s head of worldwide human resources, later apologized for her remarks, telling the staff that they “were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it.”

“For that, I’m sorry,” she said in an email. “More importantly, I want to assure you Apple’s view and our dedication to diversity has not changed.”

Smith will leave the company at the end of the year, TechCrunch reported. Taking over as VP of inclusion and diversity will be Christie Smith, who spent 17 years as a principal at Deloitte.

“We deeply believe that diversity drives innovation,” an Apple spokesman told TechCrunch in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome an accomplished leader like Christie Smith to help us continue the progress we’ve made toward a more diverse workplace.”

THIS is actual education.
Undoing the Dis-Education of Millennials

I teach in a law school. For several years now my students have been mostly Millennials. Contrary to stereotype, I have found that the vast majority of them want to learn. But true to stereotype, I increasingly find that most of them cannot think, don’t know very much, and are enslaved to their appetites and feelings. Their minds are held hostage in a prison fashioned by elite culture and their undergraduate professors.

They cannot learn until their minds are freed from that prison. This year in my Foundations of Law course for first-year law students, I found my students especially impervious to the ancient wisdom of foundational texts, such as Plato’s Crito and the Code of Hammurabi. Many of them were quick to dismiss unfamiliar ideas as “classist” and “racist,” and thus unable to engage with those ideas on the merits. So, a couple of weeks into the semester, I decided to lay down some ground rules. I gave them these rules just before beginning our annual unit on legal reasoning.

Here is the speech I gave them.


Before I can teach you how to reason, I must first teach you how to rid yourself of unreason. For many of you have not yet been educated. You have been dis-educated. To put it bluntly, you have been indoctrinated. Before you learn how to think you must first learn how to stop unthinking.

Reasoning requires you to understand truth claims, even truth claims that you think are false or bad or just icky. Most of you have been taught to label things with various “isms” which prevent you from understanding claims you find uncomfortable or difficult.

Reasoning requires correct judgment. Judgment involves making distinctions, discriminating. Most of you have been taught how to avoid critical, evaluative judgments by appealing to simplistic terms such as “diversity” and “equality.”

Reasoning requires you to understand the difference between true and false. And reasoning requires coherence and logic. Most of you have been taught to embrace incoherence and illogic. You have learned to associate truth with your subjective feelings, which are neither true nor false but only yours, and which are constantly changeful.

We will have to pull out all of the weeds in your mind as we come across them. Unfortunately, your mind is full of weeds, and this will be a very painful experience. But it is strictly necessary if anything useful, good, and fruitful is to be planted in your head.

There is no formula for this. Each of you has different weeds, and so we will need to take this on the case-by-case basis. But there are a few weeds that infect nearly all of your brains. So I am going to pull them out now.

First, except when describing an ideology, you are not to use a word that ends in “ism.” Communism, socialism, Nazism, and capitalism are established concepts in history and the social sciences, and those terms can often be used fruitfully to gain knowledge and promote understanding. “Classism,” “sexism,” “materialism,” “cisgenderism,” and (yes) even racism are generally not used as meaningful or productive terms, at least as you have been taught to use them. Most of the time, they do not promote understanding.

In fact, “isms” prevent you from learning. You have been taught to slap an “ism” on things that you do not understand, or that make you feel uncomfortable, or that make you uncomfortable because you do not understand them. But slapping a label on the box without first opening the box and examining its contents is a form of cheating. Worse, it prevents you from discovering the treasures hidden inside the box. For example, when we discussed the Code of Hammurabi, some of you wanted to slap labels on what you read which enabled you to convince yourself that you had nothing to learn from ancient Babylonians. But when we peeled off the labels and looked carefully inside the box, we discovered several surprising truths. In fact, we discovered that Hammurabi still has a lot to teach us today.

One of the falsehoods that has been stuffed into your brain and pounded into place is that moral knowledge progresses inevitably, such that later generations are morally and intellectually superior to earlier generations, and that the older the source the more morally suspect that source is. There is a term for that. It is called chronological snobbery. Or, to use a term that you might understand more easily, “ageism.”

Second, you have been taught to resort to two moral values above all others, diversity and equality. These are important values if properly understood. But the way most of you have been taught to understand them makes you irrational, unreasoning. For you have been taught that we must have as much diversity as possible and that equality means that everyone must be made equal. But equal simply means the same. To say that 2+2 equals 4 is to say that 2+2 is numerically the same as four. And diversity simply means difference. So when you say that we should have diversity and equality you are saying we should have difference and sameness. That is incoherent, by itself. Two things cannot be different and the same at the same time in the same way.educ

Furthermore, diversity and equality are not the most important values. In fact, neither diversity nor equality is valuable at all in its own right. Some diversity is bad. For example, if slavery is inherently wrong, as I suspect we all think it is, then a diversity of views about the morality of slavery is worse than complete agreement that slavery is wrong.

Similarly, equality is not to be desired for its own sake. Nobody is equal in all respects. We are all different, which is to say that we are all not the same, which is to say that we are unequal in many ways. And that is generally a good thing. But it is not always a good thing (see the previous remarks about diversity).

Related to this: You do you not know what the word “fair” means. It does not just mean equality. Nor does it mean something you do not like. For now, you will have to take my word for this. But we will examine fairness from time to time throughout this semester.

Third, you should not bother to tell us how you feel about a topic. Tell us what you think about it. If you can’t think yet, that’s O.K.. Tell us what Aristotle thinks, or Hammurabi thinks, or H.L.A. Hart thinks. Borrow opinions from those whose opinions are worth considering. As Aristotle teaches us in the reading for today, men and women who are enslaved to the passions, who never rise above their animal natures by practicing the virtues, do not have worthwhile opinions. Only the person who exercises practical reason and attains practical wisdom knows how first to live his life, then to order his household, and finally, when he is sufficiently wise and mature, to venture opinions on how to bring order to the political community.

One of my goals for you this semester is that each of you will encounter at least one idea that you find disagreeable and that you will achieve genuine disagreement with that idea. I need to explain what I mean by that because many of you have never been taught how to disagree.

Disagreement is not expressing one’s disapproval of something or expressing that something makes you feel bad or icky. To really disagree with someone’s idea or opinion, you must first understand that idea or opinion. When Socrates tells you that a good life is better than a life in exile you can neither agree nor disagree with that claim without first understanding what he means by “good life” and why he thinks running away from Athens would be unjust. Similarly, if someone expresses a view about abortion, and you do not first take the time to understand what the view is and why the person thinks the view is true, then you cannot disagree with the view, much less reason with that person. You might take offense. You might feel bad that someone holds that view. But you are not reasoning unless you are engaging the merits of the argument, just as Socrates engaged with Crito’s argument that he should flee from Athens.

So, here are three ground rules for the rest of the semester.

1. The only “ism” I ever want to come out your mouth is a syllogism. If I catch you using an “ism” or its analogous “ist” — racist, classist, etc. — then you will not be permitted to continue speaking until you have first identified which “ism” you are guilty of at that very moment. You are not allowed to fault others for being biased or privileged until you have first identified and examined your own biases and privileges.

2. If I catch you this semester using the words “fair,” “diversity,” or “equality,” or a variation on those terms, and you do not stop immediately to explain what you mean, you will lose your privilege to express any further opinions in class until you first demonstrate that you understand three things about the view that you are criticizing.

3. If you ever begin a statement with the words “I feel,” before continuing you must cluck like a chicken or make some other suitable animal sound.


To their credit, the students received the speech well. And so far this semester, only two students have been required to cluck like chickens.

Today's Second Absurdity

With nearly 100% of the recent cases of objectifying women, the misogynists are Leftists. NOT Republicans. So for all their "protections of women's rights and freedoms", those are not internalized by the self-righteous, moralizing Left, which is full of sex offenders, Leftist sex predators on women. And the Left, and probably most of Congress, Hollywood, etc., KNEW about it and did NOTHING.

Irrationality is a marker of having taken the blue pill. It makes internal contradictions OK.

Sexual Assault in the Military

Pentagon issues data on sexual assault reports at its bases

The Pentagon defines sexual assault as anything from groping to rape. It adds that an estimated one-third of sexual assault cases involving service members go unreported, Reuters reported.

For fiscal year 2016, 270 such cases occurred at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia, while a total of 211 occurred at a combined group of U.S. facilities in South Korea, the data show.

In 2015, Norfolk had 291 cases.

Other major bases that processed a high volume of sexual assault reports included Fort Hood in Texas with 199, Naval Base in San Diego, Calif., with 187 and Camp Lejeune in North Carolina with 169, according to Reuters.

Secrecy surrounds sexual harassment settlements in Congress

Washington State governments’ practice of spending taxpayer funds to settle sexual harassment lawsuits against legislators and staff has created an uproar in California’s Legislature and other statehouses around the country. Now a picture is emerging of how the U.S. Congress is doing the same thing, with less fanfare and even less transparency.

Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier of Hillsborough said Wednesday that over the last 20 years, Congress has settled 260 complaints of workplace discrimination “at a cost to taxpayers of this country of $15 million,” reiterating a figure she quoted on NBC Tuesday. But it’s unclear how many of those complaints were related to sexual harassment, versus racial or other forms of discrimination, because Congress doesn’t release that information, nor is it subject to Freedom of Information Act requests.

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".

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.
