I´m Done With the Sex Scandals
PJ Media, by Andrew Klavan

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/9/2017 4:31:47 AM

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

This whole sexual harassment hysteria, which by the way started among the ranks of the powerful in the democrat communist party, has morphed into something similar to the Chinese Cultural Revolution of the persecution and punishment of men without due process taking place.

Once again the democrat communists are now trying to use this crisis to impose their own control over our lives and how we live them.

This article reflects what we also thinking. Enough of this garbage.

No, no, no!
It´s just the beginning.
Follow the breadcrumbs. They lead to much more than lame sexual harassment. Even rape.
These monsters love children. Not in a good way.
Think human trafficking.
Think using, abusing, and discarding kids. Not just women they have power over.
This is the tip of the iceberg.
The deep state is not just rotten to the core, it is consummate evil.
The new guys in town are rooting it out from the bottom. When it gets to the top, y´all are in for big shocks.

Some facts:

Nearly all the "MeToo!" gals bought into and propagated the ridiculous "Republican War on Women" lie against Mitt Romney.

Nearly all the "MeToo!" gals had no problem at all with BarackHussein´s many praises of Islam, the religion of female submission.

Nearly all the "MeToo!" gals helped the Enemedia coverup The Rapist-Enabler´s relationship with The Rapist during her illicit "candidacy" for the presidency, vociferously excusing or denouncing "unfounded allegations" of harassment involving the former First Couple. Not one of them has raised a voice of support or sympathy for Juanita Broaddrick.

Nearly all the "MeToo!" gals bought into and propagated the execrable Enemedia lie that President Trump is a misogynist.

Let´s take a long hard look at the sincerity and credibility of the "MeToo!" gals, based solely upon their own historical record, shall we?

Andrew never disappoints. I am always suspicious of claims of harassment that could and should have been dealt with at the time with a slap or something similar. Feminists tell us women are powerful...except when they´re wimps. Make up your mind, gals.

Here´s the thing: we have to draw a distinction here.
25, 30, 40 years ago women didn´t step forward to report sexual misconduct in the workplace because there were NO venues in place to do that. There were NO protocols anywhere. If some guy stuck his tongue down your throat, what were your options? Go to the police? It wasn´t a crime. March straightaway to your HR Dept? You would´ve been counseled to "just stay away" from a colleague who "bothered" you.
So women learned to cope by telling each other about sexual predators and yes, they learned to avoid the creep. This DOESN´T mean they ACCEPTED the creepy behavior! Women simply had no POWER in the workplace then. NONE.
Fortunately, things have changed and we are now enlightened.
But...women who are reporting RECENT incidents DID have available venues. Their reports WOULD have been taken seriously and investigated because protocols WERE in place. If they chose not to disclose predator behavior WHEN it occurred, doesn´t it make their motives somewhat questionable?
It´s all a tricky issue and I´m glad it´s come to light. We can´t judge yesterday´s behavior based upon today´s enlightened standards. I don´t know where we draw the line, though.
We all knew about Hollywood and the casting couch; we just didn´t dwell on it. At the time, we didn´t need to know all of the sordid details---just as at the time, all I knew was that Liberace was "flamboyant." But we´re living in different times and if nothing else, all of these revelations are a good indicator of just how different things are nowadays. Whether that´s "progress" or not is a whole other question.

I second that emotion. You got proof, like the Franken photos or Monica´s stained dress, then bring it on. But if all you have is an accusation, then I´m not interested. And seriously, are we back in 1692 or wheat? A flood of accusations is all it takes to destroy lives? Sorry, time to end the Witch Trials.

I couldn´t disagree more. The current wave of "sex scandals" has nothing to do with sex or scandals. It´s just the latest wave of Lefty sanctimoniousness gone awry. The Left holds itself out as the model of propriety on for all moral and ethical standards in order to gain power to restructure social and political institutions. At the same time, they accuse their opposition of representing the worst-of-the-worst. Upon any objective examination, they are objectively proven wrong and move on to the next test for witches. I, for one, am happy to stay on the current test and watch them drown, without mercy.

I was raised with the more, how shall I say it? - the Dolly Parton response in 9-5.

Changing from rooster to hen real quick - in any number of ways. MANY ways to inflict damage. Oh, how to explain that to a doc in the ED?

Always fought my own battles, and as recording devices have become more ubiquitous and easily hidden, it´s made things much easier for would-be victims. 40 years ago - you better have told numerous people in detail that can back it up. More powerful the man, the more horrid the lechery - has always been that way.

Before ruining someone´s life, due process is owed to the accused. Especially when no proof is available and the stain of politics is apparent.

Allowing an accusation to have the same weight as a conviction makes the accuser judge, jury and, effectively, the sentencer.

Fortunately, the democrats Franken, Clinton and old what´s-his-name, had proof against them.

The sexcapades are not just political scandals, they are the by-products of the Progressive Socialist moral rot. Andrew hit on an important point but failed to fully develop his insightful question, “When did women become such helpless little flowers? Slapping is a very good system of justice in these cases. Slap him, shout at him, then let the voters decide.”

I submit it was the sexual revolution that turned women into these helpless flowers masquerading as “liberated feminists.” The mission of radical feminism is to break down the traditional roles of men and women. They use raw sex as the weapon. In the 60’s and 70’s young girls and women were told the way to empowerment was adopting promiscuous sex as a life style. The quaint idea of “waiting for marriage” was denigrated as oppression from the patriarchy because men were afraid of women’s sexual powers. The Pill was the key to unlocking this long suppressed power, and should a woman “get caught” legalized abortion would erase that mistake. Good girls were caricatured as ice queens and repressed harpies. If you wanted to keep dating, instead of a kiss on the porch it was expected the guy was coming inside. And if not, “What, are you some kind of prude?”

All the wisdom of generations was lost as young women tuned out their mothers and grandmothers, “You’re so old fashioned. Things are different now!” Young women in that first “feminist” generation never learned how to slap, or even why. The only men they shouted out were respectful traditional guys, while they “favored” the bad boys who really “understood” a liberated woman. Unfortunately, this break in women understanding the sacredness of their bodies has only reaped heartache. Perhaps now respect between the sexes can be reestablished.

Please indulge a second post:

To really understand how the National Organization of Women betrayed American womanhood when they approved abortion as a political plank, I highly recommend “Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement” by Sue Ellen Browder (Ignatius Press).

Ms. Browder offers some stunning original research and never before published information. You’ll learn that Justice Blackmun did not write the Roe v Wade decision, and how an avowed hedonist Larry Lader seduced Betty Friedan and NOW into embracing abortion. The story of the second NOW convention has never been told before. This is an important book and should be read by every woman who ever asked, “Who betrayed us?”

Sorry to reiterate, but just judging from what I see around me concrete-wise, the vast, vast majority of these MeToo babes hate the guts out of President and Melania Trump and did all they could to put the Medusa-esque Rapist-Enabler in the Oval Office. That´s pretty much all the evidence I need about what´s really going on here.

First off, most people do not buy into 30 or 40 year old charges. People do not buy into accusations that are politically motivated.

If a woman is going to make an accusation, it has to be done shortly after the incident. Afraid of retribution? There are courts for that.

If the accusation is of a felony, no time limit.

If the accusation is of wolfish behavior, no longer being practice by the accused, there needs to be some time limit of its ability to derail a career. The "I was a total jerk in my youth, but I´ve grown and changed" needs to be o.k.--if true.

I am a woman. I was once treated disrespectfully by a boss and I froze him with a look. Not a word was spoken. He never treated me with anything but the utmost respect after that. Today, I could take that situation to the bank and ruin a man´s life.

If I ever start my own business, it will be staffed with white Christian heterosexual males. I will have work done without drama and will never worry about tip-toeing around the perpetual victims in the female, minority, gay and non-Christian classes.

Truth to all the threads here. But I agree with #4 and #13-- we are just getting started. There are universal principles that are being violated. There are women using sexuality for power -- it is not just men victimizing woman.

Objectification of women and sexuality violates a basic human value principle, and the standards need to be taught and integrated into society.

Should Pornography and all of its lust driven, boundary smashing derivations really be protected as "free speech", available easily to any child on the internet?

It is turning out that the biggest legal and media proponents of breaking down moral boundaries are the biggest predators in their personal lives. The view that sexual conservatism are just legalistic, judgmental controlling ideas of archaic bible banging Christians is held by these more "enlightened and educated" people who are being discovered as blatant violators of basic human rights of children, women, and men.

So, Andrew, we do not need to be "done", we need to follow through and ask ourselves as a country, what should the laws and rights be in this country to protect the basic human, sexual, and moral decency of our citizens and chidren?

It´s true that women didn´t have the resources for recourse that women have today. But I submit - if anything like that would have happened to me, the first sound they would have heard would be a ringing slap. If things continued, the next sound they heard would have been the distinctive click of a pump action 12-gauge used by my father (the guy who taught me not to put up with guys who groped). Or my husband, later in life. Perhaps it´s not feminist, but I feel sorry for women who don´t also have strong males in their lives to have their backs.

Sorry folks, I´m not bored. It DEPENDS on the accusation, the evidence, and the timing.

Forty years ago and told just before an election with an admitted faked yearbook entry and since then nothing but crickets? That one´s easy. I still have a hard time with Franken´s. Why didn´t she release the picture BEFORE Franken was elected? Now, Franken along with Conyers is a support structure for the Trump impeachment in 2019, 2021 or 2023 should the Marxists take over the House. Franken, if he steps down won´t step down before the tax bill vote and will be replaced by another Marxist, same with Conyers.

The whole sex scandals now, that started with Weinstein will end as impeach Trump support structures and that is ALL. Lolita Expresses will still keep on flying the felonious skies unabated. If you think your daughter has a better chance now from predators because we´ve suddenly begun this ridiculous public purification which exists ONLY to help impeach Trump, you´re dreaming. In fact, she´s probably in greater danger.

Negotiations over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are complicated, but at their most basic level involve Democrats asking Republicans to codify protections for Dreamers and Republicans asking Democrats to allocate more resources to border security in exchange for those protections. In a midterm election year where Democrats, especially in the Senate, are defending key seats in states the Republican president won last cycle, you would think funding border security — or supporting provisions on chain migration and the diversity lottery — would be a common-sense decision. But not for today´s Democratic Party. A loud and influential coalition of grassroots progressives has

The myth of Trump’s ‘global retreat’

An increasing number of observers argue that President Trump is orchestrating fundamental changes to US grand strategy, dismantling the US-led international order and relinquishing America’s overseas commitments. It’s not true. Joe Scarborough recently lamented “America’s dangerous retreat from the world,” drawing a parallel to the isolationism of the inter-war period. “Under the banner of ‘America First,’?” reports Evan Osnos in The New Yorker, “President Trump is reducing US commitments abroad.” Misplaced as it is, this criticism isn’t cut from whole cloth. Last year the Trump administration abruptly withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and the Paris Climate Accord, and has also approved

By the grace of God, and thanks to our robust and decentralized system of government, the U.S. has survived nearly a year with an unprepared, underinformed, incurious, incontinent narcissist as president. In fact, in some regards, we’ve even thrived during this past year. Still, the president’s character — mostly his colossal self-regard, his lack of self-control, and his unwillingness or inability to learn what he ought — made the year at times aggravating, terrifying, and certainly divisive. Trump hasn’t brought on any catastrophes yet, but he has frayed the nerves of his country. And there’s still three more years of this. I’m sure

Lawmakers want James Clapper

Some lawmakers would like to see the Justice Department prosecute former spy chief James Clapper for inaccurate testimony to Congress about domestic surveillance before it´s too late. Privacy-conscious critics say looming five-year statutes of limitation for perjury and making false statements — establishing a March 12 deadline for charges — make an urgent case for action, and that nonprosecution would set a dangerous precedent that impedes oversight and executive-branch accountability. Clapper, director of national intelligence from 2010 to 2017, testified during a March 2013 Senate Intelligence Committee hearing that the NSA was "not wittingly” collecting “any type of data at

When Donald Trump was elected America’s 45th president in November 2016 the world took a collective deep breath. This was a man derided by his critics as an isolationist, woefully out of his depth on foreign policy matters, and imbued with a supposedly dangerous and reckless nationalism. European leaders queued up to condemn the new leader of the free world in the court of international opinion. But a year into his presidency Trump’s actual record has been far more effective than his detractors predicted. “America First” has not resulted in a U.S. withdrawal from the world. Far from it. The

President Trump kicked CNN star Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office Tuesday after the network’s senior White House correspondent badgered him with racially charged questions. Acosta has made a habit of grandstanding and interrupting when Trump and his surrogates are available to the media. Tuesday was no exception, as Acosta yelled, “Mr. President,” three times before finally getting Trump’s attention. “Did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway? Did you say that you wanted more people from Norway? Is that true Mr. President?” Acosta frantically shouted. “I want them to come in from everywhere… everywhere. Thank you

In the social-media era, it may no

Though many of President Trump’s boasts of achievements far surpassing his predecessors haven’t been exactly true, it looks as if he may be about to do something no one believed possible: prove James Carville was wrong when he said the only issue voters really care about was “the economy, stupid.” In the 26 years since Carville described his strategy to help elect Bill Clinton in 1992, few have challenged the wisdom of that cliché. Until now. If 2018 is, as most now expect it to be, a year in which a Democratic wave sweeps out many Republicans, it will be because

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have

U.S. Border Patrol has been accused of causing the deaths of hundreds of migrants a year by destroying food and water supplies left for them in the brutal Arizona desert by humanitarian groups. On Wednesday, two humanitarian groups released a report, detailing how they´ve distributed more than 31,000 gallons of water along dangerous migrant paths in the Arizona desert between 2012 and 2015. In that time frame, they say volunteers have found these stashes of food and water destroyed 415 times - or about two times a week on average. ´Through statistical analysis, video evidence, and personal experience, our team has

In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, FOX Business was told that Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, will likely receive the backing of mega-donors, not just within Utah, but across the country as he gets ready to announce his candidacy. “He’s given me every indication that he’s running. He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president. The people on the same list of donors that he had before for 2012, including those from Utah, is a very good place for him to raise money,” Herbert, a

By the grace of God, and thanks to our robust and decentralized system of government, the U.S. has survived nearly a year with an unprepared, underinformed, incurious, incontinent narcissist as president. In fact, in some regards, we’ve even thrived during this past year. Still, the president’s character — mostly his colossal self-regard, his lack of self-control, and his unwillingness or inability to learn what he ought — made the year at times aggravating, terrifying, and certainly divisive. Trump hasn’t brought on any catastrophes yet, but he has frayed the nerves of his country. And there’s still three more years of this. I’m sure
