Somebody tell Sandra Fluke: a Democrat state rep on Connecticut made a lewd remark to a 17 year old girl in a hearing, and also refuses to accept females as interns on his staff. Political Wire covered both incidents. Connecticut state Rep. Ernest Hewett (D) made an inappropriate remark to a 17 year old girl testifying about a program that helped her overcome her shyness and get over her fear of snakes, the New London Day reports. Said the girl: "I am usually a very shy person, and now I am more outgoing. I was able to teach those children about certain things
His picture is priceless, I can just hear him saying " Hey baby..." The audio clearly demonstrates he was making a sexual connotation. If he was a "R" he would have been forced to resign by now, but he is a "D", and for them, it´s different!
What a puke.... Fluke does´t care... She is & has been a NWO activist for population control & forced sterilization.. If you have daughters, warn hem to be wary of any new forms of so called birth control... It may be for forever. ny new sugar substitutes need to be avoided as well. Mooch & some scientists have been working on a sugar substitute for a few years now... It may be out in the marketplace now... but the scientists specialized in population control.
What a breathtakingly dirty thing to say to an obviously bright, polite, sweet young woman.
Anyone who has been in business and/or dealt with people in a professional venue for a couple decades knows for a fact that the creepy stuff people joke about a little, they think about a lot. My guess is this hewitt scumball (my apologies to all the honest scumballs out there) is a low-grade predator. He clearly has a female problem -- only boy interns -- and the off-the-hook snake comment is so gross and inappropriate that it´s almost too much to believe.
I´d say shame on him, but slime such as this has no shame. What a miserable sloven.
Personal note: I went to the link in the American Thinker article to hear the audio, on some site called Politicalwire or something like that. Most of the respondents there said that if you thought he was saying something bad, YOUR mind is in the gutter.
So my response was basically, you responders are idiots. Of COURSE it was lewd. He said "If you´re bashful, I´ve got a snake sitting under my desk here". Without a sexual connotation, the remark would make no sense. If she had said she was afraid of dentists, and the guy said "If you´re bashful, I´ve got a dentist sitting under my desk here" it would not make any sense.
Of course, everyone over there shut up, except for one reply, where the guy said I made no sense. I tried to reply to that idiot, and found I was locked out of the site.
So if this guy doesn´t like girl interns, does that mean he likes boy interns, as in preying on boy interns? Posters are correct, if this had been an R he would be in the media´s bullseye and shot with hellfire missles.
Hard though it may be to take seriously Joe Biden running for president, evidently Hillary Clinton thinks it important to dump on him. In a speech to convenience store owners (the sort of speech that yields a six figure fee), Hillary stuck the stiletto into Joe´s back and twisted it. (snip) Now that she has dumped on him in public, perhaps the gloves will come off. The upside for us is that his brain can´t keep up with his mouth, so who knows what he will blurt out? He is a born schmoozer, so he will hear lots of rumors
Many people criticize President Obama for spending too much time campaigning, traveling or on the golf course. They are wrong. He spends too much time in a far more removed and unique place: Wonderland. Indeed, he seemingly lives in Wonderland. The problem is that the rest of us live in the real world. Over the last five years it has becoming increasingly clear that Barack Obama and his crew of handpicked officials see America and the rest of the world in ways at variance with reality.
My recent post titled "America needing a white Republican president" has brought out the raving Leftist lunatics. Despite the fact that I´m black, most Leftists are calling me a racist.(snip)The gist of the article is that if America had a white Republican president, everybody would be free to criticize him without fear of being called a racist. I go on to make the point that disagreeing with a white president should have the same implications of disagreeing with Obama. Apparently not. God forbid Obama should have to actually deal with life all by himself. White Republican presidents needed no such
Two events within one recent week confirm that, on the subject of hate crime, Lady Justice now routinely sheds her blindfold, checks out the race of the accused, and judges accordingly. In that George Zimmerman looks like the kind of person who might commit a hate crime -- or at least has the name of such a person -- the investigation into his shooting of Trayvon Martin nearly two years ago remains "ongoing." So said Attorney General Eric Holder on September 30. In that Jeremiah Hill does not look like the kind of person who might commit a hate crime -- at
Mockery of Obamacare´s incompetent rollout has spread to the mainstream media, no longer able to ignore the fiasco. Case in point: The Miami Herald, not exactly a right wing rag. (snip)The first two weeks of healthcare.gov have passed, with no progress toward a usable website on which to enroll. The public is being told that they can also enroll via paper applications, but does anyone really think that the staff are in place to handle the volume of applications that must be completed to avoid the fines taxes that are part of Obamacare? Eventually, those paper applications will have to
A reader writes to us about his experience trying to sign up for Obamacare. Today I received the email below from the Health Insurance Marketplace and decided to go to the link to "preview Marketplace plans and prices." I did so, indicating I was checking plans for "You and your spouse" in Palm Beach County, Florida. (snip) Then I realized that I was never asked anything at all about our ages. So I wondered how a premium could be estimated without knowing whether we were twenty-somethings or middle aged. I went on the Marketplace´s Live Chat to find out, and here´s
Democrats tell us that ObamaCare is "the law of the land," and that the Supreme Court declared it constitutional, and that we should get used to it -- it´s here to stay. Actually, the Court found ObamaCare unconstitutional on two counts, but let it pass anyway. The problem for defenders of ObamaCare is that its court challenges just keep coming. One place to check up on them is the website Health Care Lawsuits. In September, the American Enterprise Institute ran an article by Chris Conover headlined "Will the Courts Derail Obamacare?" The article covers several of the ongoing court challenges to
It is now quite clear that President Obama is managing the shutdown of 17% of the government to inflict pain, while sparing himself and his family any discomfort. Although his media lickspittles will not publicize the worst abuses, social media offers us the chance to spread the word of his peculiar priorities. Today, we learn that the Amber Alert website, which helps rescue kidnapped children, has been taken down "due to the lapse in federal funding." Meanwhile, as Weasel Zippers points out, Let´s Move, Michelle Obama´s pet project against childhood obesity had its site, letsmove.gov still up. In a White House of skewed
Snopes.com is a website that purports to investigate the truthfulness of news reports and internet rumors. But apparently, its primary readership is stupid people. Why else would it bother to "debunk" an obvious work of satire, by well-known brilliant satirists at the website iOwnTheWorld.com? (Incidentally, a daily must-read for me). Here is the image that Snopes found to be "false" (snip)Notice that they omitted the credit to iOwnTheWorld.com, presumably because readers might have actually gone there and realized it is a satirical site. Thus, they betray their crass political motivations, to discredit critics of Obama´s handling of the shutdown. This is
What´s a leftist to do when a cherished program fails embarrassingly? Of course, create a phantom success, and publicize it relentlessly. And that is exactly what has happened with the disastrous launch of Healthcare.gov and the assorted state websites intended to enroll people in Obamacare. Obamacare found its poster boy for "success" in one Chad Henderson, who claims to have successfully enrolled where others have encountered nothing but frustration. As Chad wrote on his Facebook page: I´ve now been interviewed by The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post,Chattanooga Times Free Press, The Huffington Post, Enroll America, and POLITICO!
In an incident ignored by the media, race-baiter extraordinaire Andrea Mitchell and other big-name journalists candidly exposed their bigotry and racial prejudices at a friendly forum in the nation´s capital last year. In an unusually candid conversation, mainstream media stars Mitchell, David Gregory, and Dana Milbank let loose in an orgy of Caucasian self-flagellation during a panel discussion titled, "Media: Race & Politics - The Impact of Race in Politics 2012," at the National Action Network´s conference in Washington, D.C. The left-wing street thug group is headed by none other than Jew-hating homophobe and Obama ally Al Sharpton.
It now appears a lease with the federal government is only as good as the President occupying the White House. From an 18th century living history farm in Virginia to campgrounds in Arizona, the federal government is forcing private operators close down simply because their facilities are on land owned by the federal government. The inconvenienced customers are being told this is part of the government shutdown even though prior shutdowns never affected these facilities. How stupid is this? These operations cost the federal government nothing to maintain and most often pay a percentage of their gross fees back to the
A New York Times investigative article based on two dozen interviews with industry insiders and confidential Obama Administration documents reveals that the catastrophic $500 million Obamacare rollout "has deeply embarrassed the White House" and has the technology companies involved "publicly distancing themselves" from the Obamacare fiasco. "These are not glitches. The extent of the problems is pretty enormous," an insurance executive who participated in Obamacare conference calls told the Times. "At the end of our calls, people say, ´It´s awful, just awful.´" The Times says those closest to the three-and-a-half year-long building of Obamacare, like embattled Health and Human Services
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday admitted defeat in the fiscal debate that resulted in the government shutdown and pushed the nation toward a default, saying it was a "good fight." (Snip) But blocking the bipartisan agreement reached today by the members of the Senate will not be a tactic for us," he added. "In addition to the risk of default, doing so would open the door for the Democratic majority in Washington to raise taxes again on the American people and undo the spending caps in the 2011 Budget Control Act without replacing them with better spending cuts."
On CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday, Robert Redford said congressional criticism of President Barack Obama is racially motivated. “Don’t get me started on that,” the left-leaning actor said when asked about political gridlock in Washington, D.C. “What I wanted to see [in Obama´s second term] is turning out to be a bit of a dream that never came true. I don’t envy [Obama´s] position. I think he is a good man. I think he is an intelligent man, a compassionate man who can’t function in that environment. That environment — it is so decrepit. It is so paralyzed. And the worst
The US was scrambling to avert a potentially disastrous breach of its debt ceiling on Wednesday morning, after Republican attempts to table a deal collapsed in disarray overnight, leaving the prospects for a last-minute deal on a knife-edge. America´s divided political system now has just 24 hours to find a compromise to the budget stand-off between the White House and hardline Republicans, with the deadline to extend America´s borrowing limit falling due on Thursday. In a sign of plunging confidence in Washington on Wall Street, Fitch, a leading credit ratings agency announced that the US was now on a "negative watch"
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) says he hopes the House “will get some adult supervision from the Senate” to achieve a debt ceiling deal. (Snip)King said he would vote for that deal, and blames Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for this fiscal mess. “Ted Cruz has been a total fraud from the start,” King said. “It never could have succeeded. I can’t imagine going into battle knowing you can’t win and continue telling your people you are winning. It’s Never Never Land, parallel universes, whatever you want to call it.” Congress, King added, will be back in the same boat in three to four
It was bad enough when those teabagging Republican terrorists killed the First Lady’s Twitter account. Now they’ve taken her lovely garden hostage! Reuters: In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes – a favorite of President Barack Obama – have become worm food. It’s another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love… “Due to the shutdown, garden maintenance has been reduced considerably and only being watered as needed,” a White House official confirmed, speaking
The widow of an 80-year-old man who was shot dead by police during a drug raid on their home is suing for $50 million. On the night of June 27th, Los Angeles County deputies raided the home of Eugene Mallory and Tonya Pate. Authorities claim they had probable cause to search the premises because they could smell chemicals used to make methamphetamine while standing outside the house. Police suspected Mallory of being involved in an illegal meth ring. Mallory was asleep in bed
"Do the Republican and Democratic parties do an adequate job of representing the American people, or do they do such a poor job that a third major party is required?" A record 60% of Americans now yearn for a third major party, according to Gallup. Independents, unsurprisingly, are most likely to favor a third party, but a majority of self-described Republicans say yes, too. But what do they mean by that "yes"? Obviously, they mean many different things. Some yearn for a third party representing the Michael Bloomberg center: fiscally conservative and socially liberal like the New York City mayor. But here´s
The Left loves to think of itself as compassionate, and — indeed — many of my more liberal friends are among the most caring people that I know. So why does the Left cling so tightly to timetables and systems that not only risk rendering legal compliance with Obamacare mandates impossible but also place many families at real risk? Today, during our daily ACLJ radio show, Jay Sekulow Live, we asked listeners to call and tell us about their experiences with the exchanges. Of course we heard stories of repeated failures and frustrations, but also truly distressing stories of families dropped
President Obama has embraced “Obamacare” as the de facto name of his signature health care initiative. But the commander-in-chief believes that if the law ends up being a wild success, the moniker will disappear. “My suspicion is what is going to happen is when it’s working and everybody is really happy with it, Republicans are going to stop calling it ‘Obamacare,’” the president said Tuesday in an interview with New York´s WABC TV station. Key parts of the law — formally known as the Affordable Care Act — went into effect at the beginning of the month, but the roll-out has been marked
Psst. Anic-Pay! Bloomberg‘s Megan McArdle (who has been on an incredible roll lately**) takes issue with the idea that the Obama administration needn’t panic about Obamacare, as long as it can get its glitch-plagued health care exchanges up and running by the end of the year. Wrong, she suggests. It’s time to panic. Now. Why? Because the exchanges are the way to sign up young, healthy people and prevent the fabled “death spiral,” in which only older, sicker people sign up for insurance, causing rates to rise and healthier people to drop out, causing rates to rise even more, etc.
Nielsen has conducted an investigation into the ratings for Megyn Kelly’s new Fox News Channel show, “The Kelly File,” following grousing by MSNBC chief Phil Griffin. The investigation has revealed that the numbers for Kelly are accurate. Last Tuesday, the day after its debut, “The Kelly File” doubled its audience, crushing “The Rachel Maddow Show,” its MSNBC competition. Griffin called for a probe, dubbing the ratings feat “impossible.” Nielsen executives declined to comment.
