Republican Roy Moore is on the hot seat for alleged bad behavior around women and girls some 40 years ago. Why aren´t Democrats Joe Biden and Bob Menendez as well? Former vice president Biden, recall, has a long history of groping women, touching them inappropriately in public, making them obviously uncomfortable, as some of these photos show. Biden is in line as a top Democratic Party contender for the presidency, and nobody´s saying a thing about this. Substantially worse than Biden is Democratic senator Bob Menendez, now on trial in New Jersey for corruption. He´s been accused of having a penchant for
Comments: Because they are leftists who still have their uses to the left.
If it weren´t for double standards, the Dems would have no standards at all. It is just the Deep State. Ryan, McYertle, McLame, and all the other RINOs who want to remain at the feeding trough. Besides, Clinton and T Kennedy got off! That proves they are not guilty (really, it means not convicted though guilty). And Menendez will get off. And Moore will be forced to resign, although he is guilty of nothing. The Revolution must continue. MAGA must happen. Perhaps some additional primary challenges? Just because a pol is a Dem means that pol is innocent. Just because a pol is a Pubbie means that pol is guilty. Remember Sen Byrd of West Virginia, the Conscience of the Senate and the Exalted Cyclops of the KKK. How many buildings are named for him, again? We need to throw some more rascals OUT! Capiche?
They are hoping Biden will run for president. The Elites won´t touch anyone they think might promote their slave-owning agenda. Now that Hillary and Bill are fading, notice they are beginning to discuss ´condemning´ their past behavior, as that gives them credibility against folks like Roy Moore. If Moore steps down, expect that noise to quickly muffle.
These perverts who are the Washington Elite will never condemn someone who is useful, nor shrink from taking their pleasure wherever they want, secure THEY are above punishment.
Scratch a RINO, you´ll find a Democrat. Scratch a Democrat, you´ll discover a Marxist, scratch a Marxist, you´ll discover a murderous, self-absorbed pedophile pretending to be something else.
In ever so lacy, delicate and pious tears-and-flapdoodle language, former President Obama basically suggested President Trump is Hitler. According to the Daily Mail: Barack Obama appeared to compare Donald Trump´s presidency to Hitler´s rise to power during a speech in Chicago on Tuesday. The former president was speaking at an event thrown by the Economic Club of Chicago at a Hilton hotel when he made the remarks. Without mentioning the current president, Obama told the gathered audience of 1,800: ´We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.
A wind-driven wildfire tore over hundreds of acres near Fallbrook Thursday, gutting at least 20 structures while threatening hundreds of others, closing roads and forcing evacuations and power outages. The blaze dubbed the Lilac Fire erupted about 11:15 a.m. amid gusty,arid weather just west of Interstate 15 and north of Lilac Road in Pala Mesa. American Red Cross established an evacuation center at East Valley Community Center, 2245 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido. Cal Fire officials said two civilians were being treated for burn injuries suffered in the Lilac Fire and are being taken to a hospital. The extent of the injuries isn´t
Brush fires in southern and eastern Tijuana sent plumes of smoke into the San Diego sky Thursday. “For the moment, it’s just grass and brush,” Baja California Civil Protection Chief Antonio Rosquillas said. He said the only evacuations by mid-afternoon involved nine residents of a drug rehab center off of Bulevar 2000, a thoroughfare that runs from Otay Mesa and Rosarito Beach. The center is located in a sparsely-settled area known Rancho Cuero de Venados.
To climate change fanatics, polar bears are the eye candy for the worldwide call for action on global warming. There have been news reports about the sad shape they are in, with their coats going brown, their food supplies drying up, and their ice floes melting. Conclusion: The bears are set to starve. Welp, turns out there are too many of them now. According to Marc Morano´s Climate Depot: 2 New Papers: 92% Of Polar Bear Subpopulations Stable, Increasing – Inuit Observe ´Too Many Polar Bears Now´ ...and... Inuit observations of polar bear ecology: "Last year he said that there´s
Lena Dunham isn´t the most reliable of narrators, but the New York Times is reporting that she, along with bigshot magazine editor Tina Brown, both warned the Hillary Clinton campaign all about Harvey Weinstein´s depredations and got ignored. Hillary Clinton says she had never heard of any Weinstein problems until she read them in the news. Now, all by herself, Dunham might be suspected of publicity-hounding at this late date, but because Brown is making the same charge, she probably isn´t. "I just want ... to let you know that Harvey´s a rapist and this is going to come out at
LaVar Ball told ESPN that he has pulled his son LiAngelo out of UCLA. "We are exploring other options with Gelo," LaVar Ball said on Monday. "He´s out of there." "I´m going to make him way better for the draft than UCLA ever could have." LaVar Ball LiAngelo Ball, a freshman, is one of three UCLA basketball players who were indefinitely suspended after a shoplifting incident in China in November. Ball, the middle Ball brother, did not play a single game in college after being suspended from the team -- along with teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill. "I´m not
According to the Washington Post, anyone who finds the Kate Steinle verdict upsetting can only be a white nationalist or a neo-Nazi. Any questions as to why the public so vehemently despises the press? In an article that had to be amended because it was apparently so badly sourced, the Washington Post reported on the aftermath of the verdict exclusively through the point of view of neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Kid you not. Implication: if you´re angry about the Steinle verdict, then you must be a neo-Nazi. The only other implication is only Nazi views matter. Then to drive the
To considerable pearl-clutching by global elites, the U.S. has pulled out of the United Nations´ global framework for migration, known for now as the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. And President Trump and his United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley have done it for all the right reasons, making this as applause-worthy as anything the Trump administration team has done. Just listen to the kvetching from the Guardian in its lede: The Trump administration has pulled out of the United Nations´ ambitious plans to create a more humane global strategy on migration, saying involvement in the process interferes with American sovereignty, and
Miss him yet? Former President Obama is back, taking big-dollar speaking engagements in places like Paris, and unintentionally reminding us why we elected Trump. Based on his speech for a group of communications executives called ´Les Napoleons,´ he thinks women make better leaders than men, men are ´having problems´ with sex harassment, global warming´s Paris Treaty is coming back, and ´global challenges´ must be faced. Retch. Agence Presse-France has a couple of versions of the ex-president´s Paris speech yesterday and it´s godawful. They can be read here and here. What Obama´s speech was full of provides a handy checklist for why we voted for
In February, 2017, the novelist Emma Cline received a fifteen-page letter from the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP containing a list of accusations against her. Cline had recently found literary success with the publication of her first book, a novel called “The Girls.” Random House had paid an advance of close to two million dollars for worldwide rights to the book—an extraordinary sum for a first novel—and the Hollywood producer Scott Rudin had optioned the film rights. During the summer of 2016, when “The Girls” came out, it was rare to enter a bookstore without seeing the book’s psychedelic
In a purge as dramatic as that of Saudi Arabia or the Hollywood-media industrial complex, Venezuela has booted the most powerful names in its oil industry, with 65 officials arrested for corruption. Unlike the other purges, this one isn´t about change or lawbreaking – just gang warfare to consolidate President Nicolás Maduro´s socialist grip on power. Powerful names in Venezuela´s oil industry, people who´ve been in and out of the picture for years, went down like bowling pins in Venezuela this week. Nelson Martínez, Venezuela´s chief of the state oil company, Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA), was one. Eulogio del Pino,
Watching the Republican tax plan race through Congress, one is reminded of a big apparent difference between President Trump’s program and other populist movements in the Western world. In the United States, Trump is leading something that is best described as plutocratic populism, a mixture of traditional populist causes with extreme libertarian ones. Congress’s own think tanks — the Joint Committee on Taxation and the Congressional Budget Office — calculate that in 10 years, people making between $50,000 and $75,000 (around the median income in the United States) would effectively pay a whopping $4 billion more in taxes, while people making
A number of US athletes have spoken out against Donald Trump during his presidency -- and skier Lindsey Vonn has become the latest to have her say. Targeting Olympic gold at February´s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she spoke passionately about what it means to compete for the US ski team. "Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president," Vonn told CNN´s Alpine Edge. The 33-year-old Vonn is getting ready for the final act of a long and illustrious career. As well as competing for a second Olympic gold
Rumors that the Republican National Committee was built on the site of an ancient moron burial ground gained new credence this week when it confirmed that it was renewing its support for Alabama´s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. I shouldn’t joke, because the worst thing about the RNC’s decision isn’t the stupidity — though the stupidity is real, and spectacular — but the moral obscenity. Last month, the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee pulled out of their joint fundraising agreements because Moore had been credibly accused by several women of having preyed upon them when they were teenagers,
One of the women who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of making advances on her when she was a teen and he a local prosecutor admitted Friday to forging part of the yearbook inscription she offered as proof. Beverly Young Nelson told ABC News she wrote part of the disputed note in her high school yearbook that she and famed attorney Gloria Allred presented as proof the then-30-something Moore sought an inappropriate relationship with her in the late 1970s. Nelson still insisted that Moore wrote most of the message and signed the inscription, but said she made “notes” to
On Tuesday night, Barack Obama did the inevitable when speaking at the Economic Club of Chicago: he dropped the worn out “Trump is Hitler” comparison for everyone’s enjoyment. Obama spent a lot of time talking about being a “citizen of the world,” according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The former president boasted about saving “a million lives” thanks to his efforts in the Ebola outbreak in Africa. (Snip) The danger is "grow(ing) complacent," Obama said. "We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly." That´s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy
DEVELOPING: Calling it “the worst day of his political life,” Sen. Al Franken said Thursday he will resign from the U.S. Senate following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him. Minnesota Public Radio reported late Wednesday he would resign, though Franken’s office pushed back saying it wasn’t a done deal yet. It will be up to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a successor. (Snip) Multiple sources reported that the likely candidate could be Democratic Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, a close ally of Franken. Any successor, if he steps down, would serve until a special election is held in
Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) former presidential campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said early Thursday that President Trump was "clearly slurring his words" during an announcement that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, adding that "the impairment is chilling." "I don’t know the cause of it, but when you combine it with [Sen.] Bob Corker’s critique that the president of the United States is unstable, that he’s dangerous, when you look at the private comments that are made by members of Congress around his stability, you look at his actions in recent weeks," said Schmidt, who is also an
Al Franken’s resignation speech on Thursday seemed less heartfelt than grudging. He cast it not as an act of atonement — he continues to deny the charges largely and acknowledged through his stifled rage that his previous quasi-apologies had hastened his demise — but a reluctant act of gallantry. He was submitting docilely to the “broader conversation” on sexual harassment, he said, while signaling that his replacement, to whom he referred as “her,” would be a female pol embodying that conversation. The speech followed the usual pattern of lying pols: I didn’t do it, I’m only quitting because I am a
MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Thursday night that "the worst you can say about Democrats is that they´re too pure" in light of recent resignation announcements made by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Conyers (D-Mich.) amid sexual harassment allegations. Franken, 66, on Thursday, announced his intention to resign from the Senate by defiantly stating that some of the eight accusations of sexual misconduct made against him were false while saying he remembered other encounters differently.
How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was
We already know Steve Bannon believes that politics is war. But during the course of his speech at an Alabama rally for Roy Moore this week, he gave the country an ugly lesson in what scorched-earth political warfare really entails. (Snip)Still, despite all the fun he’s having attacking his favorite targets and boosting Moore, Bannon has to be aware that he isn’t winning his war on McConnell. Try as he might to deny it, he knows McConnell is now more important to Trump than the Breitbart attack machine is. It was McConnell’s successful maneuvering and negotiating that gave Trump his
Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump. At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.” The stock market has gained about 30 percent in value since
Sen. Al Franken took a quick glance up at a jam-packed Senate press gallery as he entered the chamber Thursday, preparing to ask Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan, who was presiding over the chamber, to allow him to make the speech that would end his political career. A senator who has long dodged questions from reporters, he finally had one for them. "Ready?" And with that, Franken, D-Minn., set out on his farewell address to the Senate — a 12-minute speech where he continued to proclaim his innocence against eight women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.
