  • Anita Hill: the Left’s Modern Alger Hiss

    04/22/2016 7:24:45 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 19 replies ^ | April 22, 2016 | Mark Paoletta
    On Saturday night, HBO debuted its account of the 1991 Clarence Thomas hearings. While it was billed as “meticulously researched” by the leftist screenwriters and Hollywood executives behind the film, Confirmation rewrites history to advance the myth that Anita Hill was a victim of sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas. The fictional “docudrama” that twists and omits key facts, and in some cases, outright makes things up, is yet another attempt by the left to establish through persistence what could not be established through evidence. At the end of Clarence Thomas’s confirmation hearings, polling done by Pew and others showed that...
  • 'Confirmation' -- HBO's High-Tech Lynching

    04/19/2016 3:51:06 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 34 replies ^ | April 19, 2016 | Debra J. Saunders
    The left is masterful at rewriting history. Witness HBO's TV movie "Confirmation," which aired Saturday, about Anita Hill's accusations of sexual harassment 25 years ago, which almost derailed Clarence Thomas from becoming a Supreme Court justice. The drama's makers claim that they didn't take sides in depicting Thomas' Senate confirmation hearings, even as a trailer punctuates close-ups of actress Kerry Washington, who played Hill, with stentorian capital letters: "It only takes one voice ... to change history." Another trailer proclaims, "One woman made a choice ... to take a stand." Apparently, because HBO didn't expressly label Thomas as guilty, producers...

    The Federalist ^ | 04/18/2016 | Mollie Hemingway
    Some of us are old enough to remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation battle. We were shocked when reports first surfaced that Thomas, a well-regarded former chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, was being accused of sexual harassment. But then we heard his accuser’s ever-changing and uncorroborated testimony, and we compared it with the testimony of a dozen close female colleagues who effusively praised Thomas as a boss known for how well he treated the women around him. We learned that his accuser Anita Hill’s testimony was contradicted by data and evidence. Thomas won his confirmation battle....
  • HBO's "Confirmation" Will Smear Justice Clarence Thomas All Over Again

    On Saturday, HBO will air it's much promoted new film Confirmation, a dramatic and biased account of Justice Clarence Thomas' 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings. As many recall, law professor Anita Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment in an effort to derail the hearings and made a career out of making a number of dubious claims. HBO of course, is happy to promote them. HBO and the producers claim the film is an accurate and well researched portrayal of history. Many who were there strongly disagree: A group of former politicians and their aides are bracing themselves for a new HBO...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. For its second season, the creators of the FX series "The Americans" have chosen a new source for insight into the Cold War during the Reagan years -- one Lt. Col. Oliver North. It's a dramatic reversal from the first season, and it has infuriated some hard leftists. The show began with the shocking promise from creator Joel Weisberg that the series' heroes would be KGB agents: "We're making them the sympathetic characters. I'd go so far as to say they're the heroes." It quickly became apparent that these characters could...

    West Chester, Ohio (CNN) -- A defiant Herman Cain tried to turn the tables on his growing legion of critics and accusers Wedneday, blasting them for allegedly engaging in gutter politics and giving no indication of any immediate intent to abandon his embattled presidential campaign. "They have been trying to do a character assassination on me," Cain told an enthusiastic crowd in Ohio. "They are attacking my character, my reputation and my name in order to try and bring me down." "I don't believe that America is going to let that happen," he declared.

Cain told his campaign this week it is time to “reassess” in light of the resurfacing of old sexual harassment allegations and new accusations this week that he carried on a 13-year affair.

    Pres. George H. W. Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court on July 1, 1991. Four days later, the National Organization for Women (NOW) declared war.“We’re going to bork him,” vowed member Flo Kennedy. “We need to kill him politically.”To “bork,” according to William Safire’s Political Dictionary, is “to viciously attack a presidential nominee, blackening his name in an all-out effort to defeat his confirmation by the Senate.” The verb stems from the name of Pres. Ronald Reagan’s ill-fated nominee Robert Bork, whose confirmation the Senate rejected, 42–58, in 1987.By 1991, Republican presidents had appointed the last nine...

    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was a binge drinker who had a pornography habit or fetish in the 1980s, then changed radically when he stopped drinking alcohol, his former girlfriend told CNN on Monday. Lillian McEwen, who dated Thomas for several years before he was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1991, provided CNN's "Larry King Live" program with a harsh depiction of Thomas. She said when they first met, he might have been a "raving alcoholic" who used pornography to help fulfill sexual fantasies, but then gave up drinking and transformed into an angry, obsessive man who bullied his...

Because even though he was a conservative, at the time, the NAACP wanted to support him because he was black. Ogletree instead ended up writing a 30-page report that was a key to the NAACP's eventually vote of no confidence. In this report, it says, "Thomas's revealed hostility to principles affecting civil right protection, including the use of meaningful remedies for both past and present discrimination."

An obvious leftist who calls himself, “Optimizer”, then commented to complain that I called those who believed Anita Hill – “Stalinists”, which, of course, I did not do.

A fundraising e-mail from campaign adviser Ann Lewis urges potential donors to "take a stand against this kind of coarseness and pettiness in American culture." Focusing on women's bodies instead of their minds is "insulting. ... It's insulting to our daughters �” and our sons �” who are constantly pressured by the media to grow...

    HER name is Crystal Gail Man gum. She is the woman who falsely accused three Duke University students of rape. Yesterday, the attorney general of North Carolina came forward and flatly declared the three young men "innocent of these charges." That means their accuser is a liar. Her name is Crystal Gail Mangum. It is the policy of the news media not to publish the names of rape accusers on the grounds that they should not have to fear public shame for coming forward with word of a horrifying personal violation. That is a noble policy. But it needs a...

    Justice Clarence Thomas' Electronic Lynching Helps Harriet Miers By Kevin Fobbs One of the most unique Supreme Court feeding frenzies on record was the confirmation hearings for now Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Because of his sacrifice U.S. Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers, who is filling a key court seat, will not have to undergo his televised hardball treatment. What America saw was this seemingly uncontrolled feminist agenda on open display to take no prisoners in its attempt to destroy Thomas and polarize America for generations to come. Americans sat spellbound and watched the Senate proceedings wondering when the feminist...

    Refusing to relinquish her extended fifteen minutes of fame, Anita Hill is back in the news. After doing all she could to prevent a black man, Clarence Thomas, from becoming a Supreme Court Justice, Hill is now attacking President Bush's nomination of John Roberts, saying she fears his selection could lead to "an all-white-male Supreme Court." God forbid. Sadly, hardly anyone noticed her racist and sexist comments. The liberal press simply yawned, since white males remain the primary targets of abuse by journalists, academics and feminists. They have been victims of affirmative action, quotas and reverse discrimination. Hill knows this,...
  • U.S. Senator Joseph R. Biden of Delaware Convenes Thomas-Hill sexual harassment hearings

    When Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall announced his retirement in July 1991, President George Bush nominated Clarence Thomas, an African-American judge he had previously appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals, to take his place. Despite their shared color, Thomas, with his opposition to affirmative action and the right to abortion, could not have been more politically removed from Marshall, who in his thirty-four years on the court had helped fortify the government's liberal position on both issues. As Thomas's confirmation hearings got underway, his conservative beliefs threatened to sink the nomination, though he managed to elude controversy by refusing...

    Anita Hill, the woman who opposed Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court by alleging sexual harassment, is now blasting President Bush's selection of John Roberts, claiming it's a step back for diversity and fears it could lead to "an all-white-male Supreme Court." In a commentary published in Newsday, Hill, who is now a professor of social policy, law and women's studies at Brandeis University, writes: "[W]as John Roberts chosen because he's the best choice for the court or because he may easily be confirmed? And why not choose a woman to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman...

    From the article "Anita Hill's After Story" in the July 2005 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine:[Anita Hill's] moment in the news may not be over yet. An appointment to the Supreme Court is for life, so Thomas's position is safe. With Chief Justice William Rehnquist possibly stepping down after the session ends in late June, however, court watchers wonder who might replace him. When previously asked about federal judicial appointments, Bush has said he would select judges like Thomas and Antonin Scalia, indicating a preference for such conservatives. That leads people to wonder whether Thomas might get the nod...
