Public must not give predators free pass
Boston Herald, by Jessica Heslam

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 9/2/2018 5:05:37 AM

The dust hasn’t even settled yet, but many of the powerful men accused of sexual misconduct against women in the #MeToo movement are already creeping out of the woodwork in desperate bids to make a comeback. And shame on us for letting them. The latest is comedian Louis C.K., who cracked jokes to an adoring crowd at a New York City comedy club Sunday night. Ex-U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said last month he hasn’t ruled out a political comeback. Fallen “Today” show host Matt Lauer recently assured some doting female fans he’d “be back on TV.”

I am very tired of women who hope to cash in on decades-old incidences of bad behavior by men, incidences that are now supposed to be categorized as sexual predation. I wonder what percentage of these cases are actual sexual abuse as compared to run of-the-mill flirting.

Idiotic. Al Franken was a capable comedy writer and a bad Senator, neither of which makes him a predator.

Matt Lauer was a dishonest pseudo-journalist and a terrible husband. He behaved badly towards women, and took advantage of them whenever he could.

These things are not crimes, and it is a serious mistake to treat them as if they were. Meanwhile, President Clinton, who beat and raped a woman in a hotel room has had a free pass from people like Jessica Heslam for decades.

The hypocrisy is staggering.

Matt Lauer´s misconduct was criminal if done in the workplace with lower level staffers. As were Bill Clinton´s actions with Monica Lewinsky. The EEOC issued regulations against sexual harassment in 1980. When someone continues to flirt after being told to buzz off, it constitutes harassment.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Fresh off its bungled machine recount, Broward County’s second day of manual recounting temporarily stopped about an hour after it began Saturday when lawyers from both political parties pointed out that volunteers were counting the wrong ballots. Hundreds of volunteers spent most of Friday sorting through 32,000 overvotes and undervotes in the Senate race between incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson and Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Broward officials announced Friday night they had finished their manual recount. On Saturday, the volunteers started sorting about 22,000 undervotes and overvotes in the contentious contest for Florida Commissioner of Agriculture.

The language we use to cover news events says a great deal about our editorial judgment. And the Associated Press’ handling of the long-shot recount efforts in Georgia and New Mexico says its judgment needs serious reconsideration. In the Peach State, Democratic House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams is hoping against hope that her recount efforts will upend the results of the state’s gubernatorial election, taking away Republican Georgia Gov.-elect Brian Kemp´s victory. On Friday, the AP covered Abrams’ campaign to overturn the election results with a headline that reads: “ Abrams prepares push for new Georgia Gov. vote.”

I’m fine with women in power, just not
this one specific woman currently in power
Washington Post, by Alexandra Petri    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 11/17/2018 4:51:03     Post Reply
The first thing I need to make clear is that I love and support women. I am eager to see more women rise to positions of power. Hashtag pink wave! Hashtag pink hat! But I have to say, I’m a little frustrated that we keep putting forward this specific woman who really grinds my gears. Not because she’s a woman. I would know if that were why. It is not that. It’s just — ugh, her, you know? She just doesn’t excite me, and I feel that she is too compromised. That’s not a woman thing, though.

Noted Vatican Theologian Calls for Examination
of Validity of Pope Benedict’s XVI’s Resignation
PJ Media, by Debra Heine    Original Article

In an important interview that was overlooked last month, a Vatican theologian said that unless Pope Francis corrects himself and reaffirms Church teaching on morals, the faith, and the sacraments, "the apostasy will deepen and the de facto schism will widen." To address the current crisis, he suggested that an examination of the “juridical validity” of Pope Benedict’s XVI’s resignation was in order to “overcome problems that today seem insurmountable to us.” The theologian consultor to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints was implying that further study of the situation could reveal that Francis is not

Ocasio-Cortez´s rise reveals rampant

Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), made headlines when she revealed that she wouldn’t be able to afford Washington, D.C. rent until her government salary kicks in. The lack of affordable housing in Washington is no joke, but the predicament also speaks to the young lawmaker’s financial literacy — or lack thereof. The 29-year-old didn’t think to consider something as basic as the relocation expenses of a new job opportunity. If she doesn’t know how much an apartment costs, how much confidence should taxpayers have in her ability to effectively deliver trillions of dollars in campaign promises?

Stan Lee´s Work a Reflection of His Times

Stan Lee, the reinventor of the comic book, died Monday at the ripe old age of 95. Comic books get a bad rap, although not nearly as bad as they used to. There was a time when comic books were the cause of an all-out moral panic. After the release of psychiatrist Fred Wertham´s book "The Seduction of the Innocent," the Senate held hearings to grapple with the alleged moral rot of comics, which were supposedly fueling juvenile delinquency and moral degeneracy. Batman and Robin, you see, were secretly gay. Superman was an un-American ersatz fascist.

Melania Trump: America’s Iron First Lady

Ivanka Trump holds rather more sway in the White House than a First Daughter should — that much is well-established. Yet this week we see that it is her step-mother, Melania, who calls the shots in her husband’s administration. Mrs T is the real force behind the throne, as Mira Ricardel has discovered to her cost. Palace intrigue doesn’t get more intriguing. Ms Ricardel, a close ally of National Security Adviser John Bolton, made the mistake of clashing with Melania over her ‘Be Best’ trip to Africa. Ricardel allegedly insisted a member of the security council

Michelle Obama’s money-making

CHICAGO — To read the worshipful press coverage you’d never know that, for Democrats, the unthinkable has happened: Michelle Obama has revealed herself as just another guru for sale. On Tuesday night, the former first lady kicked off her 10-city North American book tour, which more closely resembled a cult-of-personality-propaganda-rally, at the United Center in Chicago. (Dates have been added in London, where scalped tickets are going for over $90,000 each, and Paris.) A sliver of the 20,000 seats available for the Chicago event were priced at $29.50, and those sold out within five minutes of going on sale in September.

Last week Justice Brett Kavanaugh attended his investiture ceremony, further solidifying his rightful seat on the Supreme Court. President Trump and Kavanaugh’s fellow justices, with the exception of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was absent due to a fall, attended in his honor. “This special sitting of the court is held today to receive the commission of the newly appointed associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Brett M. Kavanaugh,” Chief Justice John Roberts said at the beginning of the ceremony. “We are pleased to have with us today the president of the United States.

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out. Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Jim Acosta´s First Amendment press rights trump the administration´s right to have orderly press conferences. He declared that the White House failed to give Acosta ´due process,´ something guaranteed in government proceedings under the Fifth Amendment. ´I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week,´ Acosta told other reporters outside the federal

She said Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate, would win the vote count which was due to be certified at 5 p.m., just as she made the speech. But she ended her bid to be the nation´s first black female governor defiantly saying that she would be suing in federal court over the election´s ´gross mismanagement´, taking a bitter election with claims of racist voter suppression into a new arena.

The judge said Acosta’s credentials would be returned immediately and reactivated to allow him access to the White House. CNN had asked the judge to force the White House to immediately hand back the credentials that give Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, access to the White House complex for press
