Conway: ‘I’m a victim of sexual assault’
Politico, by David Cohen, Jacqueline Klimas

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 9/30/2018 4:08:06 PM

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway startled CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday by saying she herself was a victim of sexual assault. “I’m a victim of sexual assault,” Conway said on “State of the Union” as part of an extended statement in defense of both Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the rights of those who have been victims of assault. "I don’t expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that. You have to be responsible for your own conduct," she continued. Tapper circled back to Conway’s remark, offering her his sympathies.

Good Lord! Is every woman a victim of sexual assault? Define sexual assault. Define assault. There seems to be no definition of what is an assault, let alone sexual assault. Is looking at a woman considered an assault?

She babbles and rambles and never makes sense. Every time she comes on FOX I mute the sound.
She may be in the Trump White House, but I think he can do better and her husband is a loose cannon.

#1 A great number of women that I know personally have been either sexually assaulted or had someone attempt a sexual assault against them. They all knew the people who assaulted them. Assault is often interchanged for rape, but it includes groping.

#2- While Ms. Conway’s husband may, unfortunately, be a loose cannon, the comment about Ms. Conway is shameful, inappropriate, and disgusting. Ms. Conway is one of the most intelligent, articulate, levelheaded women in this country and far exceeds the intellect and grace of many women in journalism and politics—including some with presidential aspirations.

Sexual assault can often mean whatever the accuser chooses it to mean. Like Jake Tapper, few want to "go there," i.e., request a blow by blow description. Sexual assaults vary in degree of seriousness and in the way they are perceived by the victim and the perpetrator. Indeed, many so called assaults should not be classified as assaults at all.

Is it necessary to tell everything you know. I am really tired of the MeToo movement. If you didn´t say anything about it 30 or 40 years ago when it happened it´s too late now. And why must everyone know about it. Just shut up.

Nearly all of the men I have worked with are honest, decent, honorable persons.

Almost every woman I know has a story to tell of some degree of abuse, ranging from inappropriately aggressive behavior to outright rape. I have encountered my share of creeps and have worked with a couple of them.

Honestly, I believe that Christianity is the civilizing force that has protected so many of us from even more unwelcome and hurtful advances. Why the #me.dummy.too movement is so eager to bring in immigrants from cultures where women are routinely abused is a question I would like DiFi and her minions to explain.

What I recall is a cluster involving Kellyanne, Melinda Pillsbury and John Fund from years back. That´s the only thing I recall as coming forth in internet news at the time.

I have been assaulted - in college - in my boyfriend´s frat house while looking for him inside. Clobbered the hell out the his frat brother, whom my b´friend then made apologize to me. I have had numerous come-ons and outright assaults over the years. No trauma. I handled them. Or my brother did, my b´friend did...and eventually my husband. It got handled. I liked the Mrs Doubtfire approach - belt them, chase after them, make them scared.

I´m no victim. I´m so done with professional victimhood and endless torture they claim. If it was what you say it was, it better have been reported, witnessed, talked over in the moment w solid witness friends. The years have been kind to us, DNA-wise. We can find them more likely if it is reported and a kit kept.

Ramona you make good points. I think most women experience some kind of uncomfortable behavior from the opposite sex, whether one is a hottie or not. Mostly it is a part of growing up. fortunately our culture allows us to reject it, we have that freedom unlike some other restrictive cultures.
Christianity allows us the opportunity to intercede for improvement in the bad behaviors, and affords us the yardstick by which to set our own moral compass. We must never forget God´s commandment ´do not bear false witness´. In a civilized society bad behaviors that cross the line into criminal behaviors must be dealt with.

I think it´s a very loose definition. I can recall an incident a long time ago that no doubt would qualify by current standards but I didn´t make much of it at the time and it certainly never affected me going forward. I probably never would have thought of it again if Ford´s allegations hadn´t been in the news.

Just because a person appears to be credible does not mean that he or she is being truthful. Any experienced criminal investigator will tell you that. So until an accuser’s statement is corroborated by other testimony or evidence, in itself, it is not worth much to prove or disprove a fact, and if it cannot be coorborated, usually in the end it is determined to be inconclusive, or self-serving and false. It is not uncommon for people experiencing emotional or mental situations to believe what they are saying is true, even after the relating facts are shown to be without a doubt false.

I had several experiences that would be defined today as sexual assault. Am I mad about it at the boys (who are now men) who committed the assaults? Yeah. Would I testify against them and try to ruin their lives? Absolutely not. It´s part of growing up in a loose culture with too much booze too easily acquired by young people with raging hormones. I would of course feel very differently had I had an experience like Juanita Broaddrick, but I didn´t. And neither have the vast majority of American women, thank God..

I think Kellyanne Conway is awesome. She is one of the major forces that helped to elect Donald Trump. Re: Judge Kavanaugh he should be confirmed!! (He is so obviously one of the nice guys, I don´t care what dirt the Left throws at that fine man.)

If you are going to qualify what Blasey Ford claims to have experienced as "sexual assault," I think that every woman has experienced that at least once, and possibly several times.

Then there are the sexual assaults inflicted by strangers, and almost every woman who has ever been in a crowded space such as a subway or an elevator has been a victim numerous times.

To claim that those incidents were traumatizing for life is ridiculous--if they were, no woman could function in life.

The definition of sexual assault has changed from 40 years ago. Almost every female friend or colleague I knew back then had stories about some jerk who wouldn´t leave them alone. But times were different then. There was nowhere to go if we had a complaint, so we learned the art of avoidance. Today the remedy is to join a victim´s movement. Perhaps 40 years from now, #MeToo will look antiquated and an uncorroborated accusation of sexual misconduct in the future will get you a one-way ticket to Mars.
Don´t laugh. If someone had told me 40 years ago that if I felt uncomfortable about the way a guy looked at me, I would be able to tap on a keyboard and connect with millions of victims around the world and be believed solely because of my gender I would´ve thought they were nuts.
We can´t judge YESTERDAY´S actions and behaviors with TODAY´S eyes---or we´ll reach the wrong conclusion. Historical context needs to be figured into the #MeToo formula.

#7,etal- In total and absolute agreement about being fed up with women coming forward revealing their sexual assaults since the MeToo movement started—it’s almost like wanting to pledge a sorority with “me too, I belong, don’t leave me out.” Common sense suggests very strongly that the only reason Ms. Conway shared her victimhood at this point in time is because of the unconscionable assault on Brett Kavanaugh and his family to make clear that women should not use this fine gentleman as a scapegoat for their pain and suffering—take that pain and suffering to courts of law and initiate legal action against the perpetrator(s) of their personal assaults. Prayerfully, may the once-esteemed FBI conduct an unbiased, honest investigation that, hopefully, will exonerate Brett Kavanaugh of these seemingly contrived allegations of sexual assault at any point in his life and allow him the privilege and honor of being a justice on the United States Supreme Court.

RIO DE JANEIRO — Ten women in Brazil have accused a self-styled spiritual healer of sexually abusing them at a clinic in the central-western state of Goias. The accusations against Joao Teixeira de Faria, known as John of God, were made Saturday night on the Globo TV network. It was not immediately clear if Farias was being investigated by prosecutors.

New filings by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III on Friday provided fresh clues about where the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is headed. Mueller’s filing said President Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was contacted in 2015 by a “Russian national” seeking “synergy” between Trump’s campaign and the Russian government. The special counsel’s team also said Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, lied about meeting with Konstantin Kilimnik, whom the U.S. government has linked to Russian intelligence

When news broke that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about his 2016 meetings concerning the failed Trump Tower Moscow project, the chattering class instantly began talking about the failed Trump Tower Moscow project. Of course that was news. But it turns out the Cohen plea agreement also made news in what it did not cover. Specifically, it spoke volumes -- without saying a word -- about a key allegation of the Trump dossier, the charge that Cohen traveled to Prague to arrange secret payments to Russian hackers attacking the Clinton campaign.
