Why are faceless accusations allowed
to end men’s careers?

Spectator, by Toby Young

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 10/19/2018 6:15:22 AM

On 11 October 2017 an anonymous Google spreadsheet began doing the rounds of American newspapers and magazines — a document that would have far-reaching consequences for Stephen Elliott, a Los Angeles-based writer and editor. Called ‘Shitty Media Men’, the spreadsheet had been created by Moira Donegan, a former assistant editor at the New Republic, and named various men rumoured to be guilty of sexual misconduct. Donegan closed it down a few days later, but by that time it had been widely circulated and many names had been added, alongside a summary of their alleged crimes.

Rape is always going to be hard to prove. There are some that still think of rape as the violent act of a stranger. Most rapes are committed by acquaintances. That´s why they aren´t reported in a timely fashion, if at all. When we finally de-stigmatize the victims, hopefully more will be believed. In the meantime, reporting an assault should not be timed for the last week of someone´s senate confirmation 35 years after the fact.

This has been going on since women found out they could get away with it. You are always going to have a percentage of women who are sociopaths. Fewer than men, but nevertheless having no conscience and a delight in destroying. I once read testimony from an experienced detective who said that about half of walk-in rape accusers walk back out the door after some questions and the detectives can tell they are changing their stories, unable to provide any details which if they do get crosswise, and are cautioned that false testimony can have serious consequences. Half. And they never make it to the point where they get included in official false-rape-claim statistics.

#4, thanks for reminding us of Susan Hoerchner, who was supposed to be Anita Hill´s best witness.

Hoerchner´s story was destroyed by Arlen Specter during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. I remember the moment Specter caught her in a lie.

Specter´s Perry Mason moment was so subtle, many may have missed it. You had to be paying close attention to Hoerchner´s lengthy, boring testimony to be able to see how, suddenly, after Specter´s patient questioning, it no longer hung together.

Hoerchner herself knew she´d been caught. There was a long silence while she struggled to reconcile conflicting claims. "Oh ... I see what you´re saying" was all she could come up with in response to Specter. But the MSM ignored the aha-moment.

Perhaps because the ´college-educated´ no longer study logic, history and the empirical method. The progressives promote neo-romantic trust of feelings and emotions because their ideas would never past muster under the enlightenment regimen of hard facts, reason, logic and common sense.

To expand on #5´s excellent observation, the worker compensation referee (called Judge in California) testified that when she was still living in D.C., Anita Hill called her and said her supervisor was sexually harrassing her. The date in question proved to Arlen Specter that Anita was still working at the Education department, but Clarence Thomas had already moved on to the EEOC. (shortly after the call, Susan the nasal queen moved to California.)
(I believe I recall the facts in the situation correctly - if not, let me know.)

A college I was in had a guy whose duty was to oversee the fraternities. Late Saturday night after the usual drunken orgies a girl accused him of rape. The gendarmes were called and they put him in the squad car and were about to take him downtown to be booked. Then the girl told the officers it was all a joke and hedn´t done anything. No harm no foul. But the guy was really shaken up and quit soon after. If she hadn´t recanted he would have been fired and gone to trial. And if you are fired and busted it stays on your record forever. Am not belittling sexual assault. But the system can be abused.

Just a little side note to add to #s 5 and 9...IIRC, it was also Specter who told Splash Kennedy to shut up when testimony was going against the accuser and Ted wanted it stopped.

Stunning: Ohr Testimony Reveals Top DOJ
Officials Briefed About Steele Before FISA
Sara Carter.com, by Sara Carter    Original Article

Three top Senior Justice Department officials, two who are senior prosecutors on Robert Mueller’ Special Counsel, met with Bruce Ohr in the summer of 2016. This meeting happened well before the FBI sought a FISA warrant on a Trump campaign official. Ohr informed the trio of DOJ officials about his close contact with former British Spy Christopher Steele, whose dossier was part of the evidence used to investigate the Trump campaign. Further, Ohr warned the dossier was not vetted. The FBI, however, used as the bulk of evidence from the dossier to obtain

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence cleared the air Tuesday after several posts circulated around social media attributing to him a quote he claims he never said during his White House visit Monday. The quote he denied saying was: "President Trump got all our favorite foods. It was the best meal we ever had. Then we go and see the coastal elite media trashing it for not being organic vegan. We’re football players, not bloggers. This was a perfect blue-collar party.”

The shutdown hurts the President. Still
the anti-Trump media can’t keep off Russia
Spectator, by Freddy Gray    Original Article

Government shutdown stories aren’t sexy, everyone can see that. Nevertheless, it is curious that the journalists who most loathe Trump are so willing to distract their audiences from a political crisis which polls show is hurting the President, to focus again on the exhausting Russia conspiracy, which isn’t. This weekend, we saw another flurry of noisy Trump-Russia scoops. The latest allegations feel thinner than usual — yet still they dominated the airwaves and Twitter feeds of media VIPs. On Friday, the New York Times related that the FBI ‘became so concerned’ about Trump’s firing of FBI director James B. Comey

What the nation ought to

Mayor de Blasio gave his sixth State of the City address Thursday, and he conjured an image of a revolutionary leader prying money from terrified billionaires. That’s because, in a Democratic primary with candidates tracking increasingly leftward, he stands out for the wrong reason: When it comes to governing, de Blasio is more old-school, big-city Democratic pragmatist than new-school, Democratic Socialist. He fears his left flank. De Blasio used to talk about New York as a tale of two cities. Now, he is trying to write a tale for two audiences.

In border fight, Democrats want ´technological

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California says a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border would be "immoral." Instead, she favors something she calls a "technological wall." Another top House Democrat, Rep. Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, calls it a "smart wall." Instead of building an actual physical barrier of steel, concrete, or some other material, Pelosi, Clyburn, and other Democrats advocate employing an array of high-tech devices — drones, infrared sensors, surveillance cameras, and more — to keep track of activity at the border without physical impediments to discourage illegal crossings.

Supreme Court turns down

The Supreme Court has declined to intervene in a mysterious subpoena fight that apparently involved an unidentified foreign-government-owned company and special counsel Robert Mueller. Last month, the unknown firm asked the high court to block a federal judge’s contempt order and $50,000-a-day penalty for refusing to comply with the subpoena, arguing that the company is immune from U.S. grand jury subpoenas. The company also insisted that complying with the subpoena would violate the law in the firm’s home country.

We all knew Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer´s rebuttal to President Donald Trump´s primetime address would be nothing but a joke. None of us really knew just how bad it would truly be though. Naturally, after watching the train wreck occur, Americans – primarily conservatives – took to Twitter to mock the duo. After all, their address was one of the most awkward addresses we´ve ever seen.

Los Angeles County has agreed to conduct a purge of its voting rolls, in a move that could strip perhaps 1.5 million inactive voters from the lists of those eligible to cast ballots. The county made the deal in a settlement last week with Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest firm, saying that under a recent Supreme Court ruling, it has a duty to remove names of people who appear to have either died, moved from the county or lost interest in voting. The county committed to mailing hundreds of thousands of voters already deemed inactive

The German weekly Der Spiegel, one of the top-selling publications in Europe, is reeling from a scandal that revealed that a star reporter has reportedly faked stories for years. Many of the faked stories written by Claas Relotius were centered in the United States or in the Middle East. So far, Der Spiegel editors said Wednesday, they had found that Relotius “made up stories and invented protagonists” in at least 14 of the 60 stories examined so far. But they said the investigation is only beginning. The editors said they were “astounded and sad” by the discovery, which they called “a low point in Der Spiegel’s 70-year history.”

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted Friday that many Americans would dismiss the news media as a "bunch of leftist liars" in the wake of the BuzzFeed News story called "not accurate" by special counsel Robert Mueller´s office.

A near majority of Republicans do not have a favorable view of freshman Senator Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-UT), according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released on Thursday. The poll, conducted January 10-13, found 48% of “Republicans and conservative-leaning” have an “unfavorable” view Romney. Just 29% view Romney favorably while another 23% are “unsure” or “never heard” of him. Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol have said Romney is now the “leader of the Republican Resistance to” President Donald Trump, and the PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll again shows how unpopular of a label that is among Republicans.

Country music is the most American of musical idioms, alongside jazz. With a longer history than rock and roll or hip-hop, country has produced a powerful pantheon of memorable artists, albums, and songs. Growing up, I pretended not to like country music, even though it was the music I heard my dad listen to the most (while my mom turned me on to the incredible pop and rock of the ‘60s and ‘70s). Nowadays, I’ve shaken that youthful pretension and will admit to enjoying most types of country’s many subgenres. I also have to admit that compiling a list

Should you believe in a God? All the discord and vitriol in our culture boils down to how you would answer. Border walls, gay marriage, abortion, national defense, school choice -- where you stand on these issues and the myriad others comprising our daily tussle is for the most part defined by how you answer this question. Your answer, yeah or nay, draws a very hard line. The professional philosopher John G.

Mueller, the wall impasse, the shutdown, the "postponement" of the SOTU – all are skirmishes in the undeclared war on President Trump waged by Democrats, the Deep State, and the compliant media. A decisive battle will be enjoined if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or resigns this year. Nothing scares the left more than the prospect of Trump filling another seat on the SCOTUS with a young, fire-breathing constitutionalist who would join with Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh to form a conservative bloc for the ages. Pelosi and Schumer are praying that Justice Ginsburg survives and remains on the bench until

Just a day after rushing to judgment about a BuzzFeed story that claimed President Trump had instructed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress — a story Robert Mueller’s own office subsequently debunked, the blue-checkmark media elite had a new instant narrative to promote. It was a tale perfectly tailored to liberal biases: white Catholic teenagers in MAGA hats had harassed an old and frail Indian veteran during the March
