NYT Writer: Cancel Holiday Office Parties
So Women Avoid Sexual Harassment

Breitbart Politics, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 12/12/2018 8:00:51 AM

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed. In her article titled “The Torture of Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party,” Weiner described the holiday season as “the least wonderful time of the year.” “Why are we having holiday parties at all?” complained Weiner to Gayle King on Monday morning. “Wouldn’t you rather have an extra $100 in your paycheck than have to put on the Spanx, put on the heels, be social with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath

Maybe you should have a Christmas party instead of a Holiday party - better class of people.

I will wager that in most workplaces, the females are eagerly looking forward to the holiday party, the guys not so much.

So this Weiner babe would rather shut the party down so that she doesn´t have to "put on the Spanx" and socialize with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath."

Ruin it for everyone because you´re a dog.

How about we get women to cover their hair? Maybe wear a black tent so a man won´t look at her. Don´t allow her out of the house without a male relative as an escort. Keep her hidden and out of sight. Protect her from herself and any man that might dare to say hello. If she is not in the public then she will always be "safe". Oh, wait. That´s been tried. You might want to start with making the office party an alcohol free zone. Unfortunately alcohol gives people fake courage which really is just stupidity coming forth.

I bet she is not the favorite of the fashion industry that thrives in NY. If the women can´t dress up in their finery for an office party, when can they? Why do celebrities keep wearing dresses slit up to their crotches and down to their navels when they go out? Not for other women. This is such a screwed up culture.

I never liked office parties, except the part of not having to work. Sometimes I just left early and went home. The fake happiness, and phony atmosphere just made me uneasy. The mangers gathered together in their own groups, while the worker bees sat around and complained about the cost of the party which could have been our raises. The most common comment from most people were, " So I guess this is our bonus."

At first I suspected that this was satire. It was just too ridiculous to be taken seriously. Her name is actually "Weiner"? and she complained about somebody looking at her backside while she is supposedly wearing spanx and heels to a "Holiday" party?(notice there is never any mention of Christmas). Really? has she looked in the mirror, lately?

The discussion continued to get even more ridiculous as they mentioned wearing body cams and "a Christine Blasey Ford memorial one-piece bathing suit under the clothes, which is terrible, but here we are."

She is really lacking in self-awareness. Evidently, she´s confessing that her NY Time liberal colleagues routinely get drunk and rapey at their secularized generic "holiday" gatherings. Typical of the Times writers in their group-think bubble, since this is what they see they just assume that everyone is like them.

Either don´t drink alcohol or have one drink. Too many problems caused by drinking too much at office parties.

One year a woman who rode our commuter bus was killed crossing the road after drinking too much at an office party. An investigator was on our bus a few weeks later seeking witnesses as her family filed a wrongful death suit against her employer for serving too much alcohol to her at company Christmas party.

I spent 26 years going to office parties in various USA cities as well as overseas. The only women I saw "eagerly" looking forward to the parties and the men who would be there were those who already had a "loose" reputation anyway. We all knew who they were. Ms Weiner sounds like she might be one of them.

In my business career, over 40 years, I never worked at a place that had an office Christmas party.

Our technical group, about 6-10 specialist engineers, would get together at one of our homes for a potluck dinner, and social event with spouses a week before Christmas.

I have seen these at-the-office sort of things, paid by the company, bosses present, on TV, but never had one where I worked.

At work, the last day before Christmas, everyone brought in some food and we had a great lunch, lots of specialty dishes, pasta and bean salads, venison sausage, Swedish meatballs, cookies, fudge, cakes, pies. The boss supplied barbaqued brisket, but we covered the rest, set it up, cleaned it up, no alcohol at work.

Never a drinker, I never missed the kind of alcohol fueled craziness shown on TV shows. Of course, if it is like everything else on TV, real life is nothing like it.

Jennifer Weiner, the Grinchette who trolled Christmas. /sarc off

If women are routinely mistreated at their office Christmas parties, they can simply decline to attend. BTW, I agree that it is a bad thing when they are mistreated by some colleague. But, hey, as a Christian and a conservative, there are places and gatherings that I avoid so as not to be hassled by boors and fools.

Always enjoyed them. Its a time to loosen up a bit, meet everyones spouse, and be a little more discreet about the nasty politics. Yes, harmless flirtation happens. Its part of what makes life good.
Alcohol is essential for a successful one. The non drinking parties aren´t worth the effort as everyone is just wishing for it to be over.

Instead of cancelling the "Holiday Party" I meant "Christmas Party"...how about if we just don´t hire anymore women? You women are just too darn emotional. Just stay home and let the men have a stag party.

Besides more men and women have gotten fired over bad conduct at a Holiday/Christmas Party than any other corporate function.

Giuliani doesn’t deny Trump campaign

Market Watch, by Mike Murphy    Original Article
Posted By: M2- 1/17/2019 7:11:57     Post Reply
Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, said he doesn’t deny that the Trump campaign may have colluded with Russians in the 2016 election — only that Donald Trump himself did not. Speaking on CNN on Wednesday night, Giuliani claimed he has only said Trump himself was not involved in collusion. “There is not a single bit of evidence the President of the United States committed the only crime you can commit here, conspiring with the Russians to hack the DNC,” he said. Giuliani also said Trump has never denied there was no collusion,

The New York Times’ War on

The New York Times has never been a big fan of Israel, or non-assimilated and non-leftist Jews for that matter. But it’s hard to escape the impression that the Times has decided to intensify its hostile stance towards Israel, Israeli Jews, and American Jews who support Israel. These efforts take two forms. First, the Times whitewashes Israel’s enemies. Last month, the paper published a paean to Hezbollah, Iran’s Lebanese terror army, which controls Lebanon and remains the most powerful and dangerous terror organization in the world. In an article ostensibly about Christmas celebrations in Beirut, the paper singled out Hezbollah for praise for

Since January 1, neither CNN nor MSNBC has booked a single “Angel Mom” — mothers of children brutally murdered by illegal aliens — as guests on their networks, per an analysis conducted by the Republican National Committee (RNC). The RNC told Breitbart News it has tracked both networks since the beginning of the year as they intensely bash President Donald Trump over the government shutdown that is now the longest ever in the history of the United States. Since the turn of the year to 2019 from 2018, neither network has conducted a single interview with any family members of victims

Support for Trump´s wall
reaches all-time high: Poll

Support for President Trump´s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is at an all-time high weeks into a partial government shutdown which began over a border security dispute for funding. According to the results of an ABC News and Washington Post poll released Sunday morning, 42 percent of Americans support a wall. That is up from 34 percent one year ago and a previous high of 37 percent in 2017. With 54 percent, the majority poll still oppose building a border wall. However, that opposition is shrinking, as 63 percent opposed the wall a year ago and the previous low was

Donald Trump Jr. put CNN´s Jim Acosta in his place on Thursday in response to the White House correspondent taking a swipe at him on social media after being roundly mocked over videos he posted on his Twitter account. Acosta visited the border in McAllen, Texas, ahead of President Donald Trump´s visit, and decided to try to prove that the president was wrong about the border. The result was Acosta unintentionally demonstrating that border walls made the area safer. "I found some steel slats down on the border," Acosta tweeted.

During a heated debate about illegal immigration with former Donald Trump adviser Steve Cortes Wednesday on CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” network commentator Ana Navarro took to filing her nails. The segment began with Cortes and Navarro, a staunch critic of the president, reacting to Donald Trump, Jr.’s now-deleted tweet that said zoos work because they have walls. “At the end of the day, Donald Trump, Jr., and whatever he says, can I just file my nails? This is an entitled, rich, spoiled little brat whose only call to fame is being his daddy’s son,” Navarro said.

Fertility rate for white women plummets

Fertility rates for white women were down in every US state in 2017 - below the rate needed for the population to replace itself, a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals. However, among black and Hispanic women, fertility rates were up in 12 and 29 states, respectively. When researchers looked at fertility rates for women of all age groups and races, they found that the nationwide rate was 16 percent lower than what is considered the level for a population to replace itself. Experts say this is likely due to the fact that the

There are so many contrived outrages in a given week, let alone a year, that it can be hard to recall any individual instance of outrage after it has already passed. But the infamous Starbucks bathroom outrage was so phony, so absurd, and so disconnected from anything resembling logic or reason, that it deserves to be remembered. In case you need a refresher course: a Starbucks manager at a location in Philadelphia came under heavy fire last spring after refusing restroom privileges to two non-customers. The men, who happened to be black, asked to use the restroom...

Recently, the mainstream media gleefully reported something that many at first dismissed, quickly passing it off as nothing more than a transient morsel of cultural trivia, if not fake news. Allegedly, a recent Gallup Poll not only bestowed upon Michelle Obama the honor of being The Most Admired Woman in 2018,but also thereby declared her to be more popular than Hillary and Oprah! I would suggest this news might represent an ominous bellwether of measurable import to all of us who are hoping to see President Trump elected to a second term.

In spite of policy differences on social issues—from gay rights to gun control to abortion—the steadying core of modern-day conservatism always has been the defense of the individual over the state. During the Reagan era, the movement witnessed in real time how the disassembling of statist economic policies could resuscitate a fossilized free-market system to the benefit of nearly all Americans. Before Reagan’s election, libertarian economist Milton Friedman warned that our economic freedom is threatened constantly by the capriciousness and self-interest of politicians and their special interest benefactors—and that was not okay: “Both the fragmentation of power and the conflicting government

On Tuesday night, President Trump will deliver a prime-time address to the nation “on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern border.” It will be his first big address from the Oval Office, a signal that the president recognizes, at least on this issue, that to succeed he must reach beyond his base to rally the American people. He further promises to travel to the border Thursday to “meet with those on the front lines.” The Oval Office speech and trip to the border suggest the stakes are rising as the government shutdown is now in its third week.

The leader of the Russian Orthodox Church has said that humans’ dependence on modern technology will result in the coming of the Antichrist. In an interview with Russian state media, Patriarch Kirill explained he does not entirely oppose gadgets, but warned against “falling into slavery” to smartphones. Patriarch Kirill said that the collection of user data including “location, interests and fears” will make it possible for humans to be controlled by external forces. “Control from a single point is a harbinger of the coming of the Antichrist,” Kirill told the state-run Rossia-1 TV network on Orthodox Christmas Monday.

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed.

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday night she “doesn’t care” if the Secret Service said it was prepared to appropriately secure the State of the Union address despite the partial government shutdown.

(Photo) In a letter to President Trump, Pelosi claimed the lack of funds to Homeland Security posed a risk to the White House and the Congress during the event, but the Department of Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen released a statement refuting that. She shared that statement in a

The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

He made them look like fools sitting in the capitol at the driveway basically trying to figure out what’s coming next. He caught them in

In the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday, President Donald Trump may have suffered some among Republicans overall, but he saw a huge point gain in a different demographic breakdown, and an unexpected one by conventional wisdom. In early December, the poll had Trump’s approval rating among Latino adults at 31%. The results from the poll released Thursday show the president’s job approval among Latino adults at 50%. That is an astonishing 19 point swing. Prior results had less variance, with Latino approval numbers at 36% in their November 1st findings. It was 27% in the pollster’s mid-October survey.
