A Wall St. Executive’s Downfall Seemed
Sudden. It Was Years in the Making.

New York Times, by Kate Kelly and Andrew Ross Sorkin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/13/2018 5:13:53 AM

Late last year, Morgan Stanley got a tip: Reporters were asking about allegations that a high-profile executive, the former congressman Harold E. Ford Jr., had harassed a female journalist. Morgan Stanley conducted a quick investigation, interviewing the accuser and Mr. Ford, who denied the allegations. According to Morgan Stanley officials briefed on the internal process, the Wall Street bank concluded that it was a he-said, she-said situation and didn’t find proof of harassment. Then Morgan Stanley fired Mr. Ford. Why? It depends on whom you ask. The Morgan Stanley officials briefed on the process say that amid a national outcry over sexual harassment, the

Anyone else remember when Harold Ford was supposed to be the Democrats´ bright future leading to the White House?

"Ridiculous" must be today´s news topic.

There´s a national outcry over murder. Hmmm, you look like you killed somebody.

I remember being really surprised when Ford´s firing was made public. Now we know the rest of the story. Morgan Stanley was trying to get rid of him for business reasons, and did it by using a pretty shaky harassment claim which did in fact destroy his reputation. Which isn´t fair.

I always liked Ford. He is an affable character who showed the ability to work across the aisle.
But he drifted left, going back to the democratic plantation.

I won´t vouch for Ford´s work habits, political pedigree or anything else. The allegation of sexual misconduct against him reflects the madness sweeping society. A one-time misunderstanding, belied by this "reporter"´s fawning email to him, now results in the destruction of a man´s reputation and the humiliation of his children. I would call it McCarthyism, but that would be a slander of Joe McCarthy, who actually had evidence on his targets.

My fellow right-wingers who express schadenfreude when a liberal celebrity gets brought down by this stuff are fooling themselves. This is a destructive anti-male jihad. It will consume them too. Watch out

The Ford family is to politics in Memphis TN what the Daley family is/was in Chicago. Harold seemed more normal, but it´s hard to tell if it was real or an act.

I don´t see where his behavior was especially egregious. As others have said, his performance probably lagged behind his salary requirements, so they used this old complaint to oust him.

The Speech Trump Should Give

My fellow citizens: More than 20 months have passed since you elected me your president. Unfortunately, America remains polarized by that election, which was marked by Russian interference, FBI investigations into both candidates or campaigns, and questions whether some powerful federal agencies themselves tried to influence the outcome. We still have more questions than answers. Tonight I address you from the Oval Office to tell you the step I am now taking to ensure that the American people will finally get the complete story. At the heart of our democratic system is accountability. Inspectors general and special counsels and criminal prosecutions may

In the early hours of December 11, 2016, while cruising New York City’s East Village neighborhood, 25-year-old David Martinez and his friends encountered a problem. Driving down E. 3rd Street, the group suddenly found themselves stuck behind a livery cab. Noticing an orange parking cone obstructing their way around the cab, Martinez hopped out of the passenger side door of his black Mercedes-Benz in order to move the cone and squeeze by the livery cab. Unfortunately for Martinez and his companions, that cone had been deliberately placed there by the notorious Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, who have long called that stretch

Why Trump doesn´t admit
Russian election interference

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm

John Brennan Misses Communist Russia
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/17/2018 5:03:38     Post Reply
John Brennan’s anti-Trump tweets grow more and more maniacal. His latest tweet holds that Donald Trump’s Russian diplomacy in Helsinki “rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.” That tells people all they need to know about the unseriousness of the left’s impeachment drive, not to mention exposing once again the demented malice behind the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign. The unhinged criticism is also hilariously rich, given that John Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians. At the

Donald Trump shocked the world today by showing up in Helsinki and being Donald Trump. In a joint press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin, Trump was asked whether he agreed with the conclusion of America’s intelligence agencies that the Russian government “interfered” with the U.S. presidential election in 2016. The president’s (partial) response was this: You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven´t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee? I´ve been wondering that. I´ve been asking that for months and months and I´ve

If you´re a conservative, a Trump fan*, or pretty much anybody else in 2018 who doesn´t like the Democrats or their agenda, you probably get scolded whenever you mock Hillary Clinton. Her voters are still very protective of her: "Why can´t you leave her alone? Why are you so obsessed with her?" Well, she probably wouldn´t catch so much flak for refusing to go away if she would just, um, go away. But she continues to show up anywhere there´s a microphone, an audience full of people who cried on election night, and a check with a bunch of zeroes

Kavanaugh and King Trump

Democrats are trying out several themes against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, so far with a notable lack of success. One frequent attack is that President Trump appointed Judge Kavanaugh to save him in a constitutional showdown with special counsel Robert Mueller. Adam Schiff, the Democratic answer to Republican Louie Gohmert, said on CNN: “Can the President pardon himself? Can the President pardon his own family? Can the President be held liable for obstruction of justice or is he essentially, as [Rudy] Giuliani and others argue, above the law because he is the law and he can’t be held to be

We´re now just four months, practically speaking, from the effective launch of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary season. As soon as the 2018 midterm election is in the books — win or lose — you´ll probably see a handful of the dozens of prospective candidates making moves or even launching campaigns to challenge President Donald Trump. Each quarter, the Washington Post handicaps potential candidates. Here is its latest ranking of possible contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020: Worth watching: Montana Gov.

More Potemkin Indictments From
Helsinki’s Would-Be Saboteurs
American Spectator, by Jed Babbin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/16/2018 5:01:07     Post Reply
On Friday — three days before today’s summit meeting between President Trump and Russian President Putin — the boss of Team Mueller, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, announced that a dozen Russian intelligence officers had been indicted on charges relating to Russia’s attempt to interfere in the 2016 election. These Potemkin indictments could have been announced a month earlier or a month later. Instead they were obviously timed and intended to have an effect on the Trump-Putin meeting. Mueller has no business playing around with foreign policy. The Friday indictments were a truly despicable abuse of power. Last February, Mueller conducted a

Why are greens silent over

Hamas’ recent tactic of launching fire kites and balloons over the border from Gaza marks something new: ecological war. Why aren’t the world’s greens screaming at this “assault on the planet”? Since the end of March, Hamas-spurred terrorists have flown hundreds of Molotov cocktails and improvised firebombs into Israel, setting aflame thousands of acres of farmland, forests and nature preserves. The damage to Israeli agriculture is said to be in the millions, and a drop in tourism dollars compounds that. The cost of fighting the fires, too, is enormous, not to mention the stress on locals.

A man wanted for questioning in the murder of a college student shot three police officers in Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday during a series of firefights that began at a motel and ended with his death when he bolted from a house with his rifle blazing, authorities said. The shooting erupted just after noon at a motel in the city where undercover and tactical officers were conducting an investigation into the robbery and killing at a restaurant last week of a 25-year-old University of Missouri-Kansas City student, police said. Kansas City Police Chief Rick Smith said detectives had been conducting surveillance

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

(Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter.

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen.

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.
