  • Former DNC Chairman Calls For Clinton Contingency Plan

    09/12/2016 11:24:38 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 17 replies ^ | 09/12/16
    “Now is the time for all good political leaders to come to the aid of their party,” said Don Fowler, who helmed the DNC from 1995 to 1997, during Bill Clinton’s presidency, and has backed Hillary Clinton since her 2008 presidential bid. “I think the plan should be developed by 6 o’clock this afternoon.” ... Fowler noted that at one of his first-ever DNC meetings, in 1972, he supported a decision to nominate Sargent Shriver — a member of the Kennedy clan — to replace Thomas Eagleton as George McGovern’s vice presidential nominee, the only time either major party has...
  • Shriver Report Is the New ‘War on Women’ Manifesto

    If there was every any question of whether the Left would recycle the “War on Women” campaign effort for 2014, there isn’t now. The release of the Shriver Report – with its the lengthy, anecdote-filled document; catchy website and social-media campaign; day-long events; and presidential pow-wow – shows that the Left is doubling down on the message that women are under siege in America, and only bigger government can save them. The publication ably describes some of the hardship and challenges facing American women, though there is the obligatory use of exaggerated statistics. Beyonce (who is naturally a lead author...

    The Center for American Progress partnered with Maria Shriver on lib, NBC promoted report. Not only did NBC allow their special anchor Maria Shriver to promote her own report on “Nightly News,” they did it without disclosing that it was made in partnership with a group that liberal billionaire George Soros gave $7.3 million to. In “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From the Brink,” which was published on Jan. 11, an outspokenly liberal nun, Sister Joan Chittister, took aim at religious attitudes in America that “devalue” and marginalize women. Shriver was invited to the White House on...

    Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's marriage might not be completely terminated, according to one report. The couple, who filed for divorce in July surrounding a messy infidelity-and-love-child scandal on Arnold's part, could get a second chance thanks to Shriver's religious beliefs. Shriver's Catholicism forbids divorce, so Maria is second-guessing the split, a TMZ source said Monday. The report also alleges that the former governor of California "desperately" wants his bride back and has been wooing her with gifts. The pair spent the Christmas holiday together

    LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger appears to be using his wardrobe to send a message to estranged wife Maria Shriver. The former governor recently donned a t-shirt that read, "I survived Maria." Schwarzenegger was spotted wearing the shirt during a bike ride Sunday in Santa Monica. The garment was designed by Shriver's staff as a joke and given to Schwarzenegger last November during a farewell party for his staff, TMZ is reporting. The shirt, which originally had the dates 2007-2010 printed on the bottom, was altered to list the dates 1977-2010. Schwarzenegger and Shriver began dating in 1977. The...

    Betrayal -- that's what living a cafeteria lifestyle means, so it's hard to feel too sorry for proud, self-proclaimed "cafeteria Catholic" Maria Shriver who is experiencing the reality of betrayal from her cafeteria husband. In 2008, Shriver told the world, via the Washington Post's religion blog, that she chooses what she wants from Church teaching: "Even though I consider myself a Catholic in good standing, I disagree with a lot of the teachings of the Church....I don’t believe that if someone’s divorced they shouldn’t get Communion; I don’t believe that people who are gay shouldn’t be accepted into the...

    Ahnold's cheating may put him into legal trouble. The California Attorney General will conduct an “inquiry” into former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s alleged misuse of taxpayer funds to cover up his sexual liaisons, it was reported today. Probers are conducting a "preliminary evaluation" into Schwarzenegger’s double life, which allegedly included using his "state-funded security details to cover up women being escorted into his hotel room," according to Veteran hotel security officer William Taylor said he witnessed Ahnold using California Highway Patrol cops and vehicles to carry "scantily-clad women in-and-out of his suite" at the Sacramento Hyatt Regency, where he and...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 5/24/11 | Carla Marinucci, Chronicle Political Writer
    California's former first lady Maria Shriver has made it her hallmark to celebrate women as "architects of change" - but the author, activist, journalist and mother of four always offered a more circumspect view of herself as simply "a work in progress." What comes next for Shriver - personally, professionally and politically - may now be played out on the public stage in the wake of the scandal involving her husband, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who last week admitted having a child with a housekeeper more than a decade ago while married to Shriver. The couple announced their separation earlier...

    After 25 years of marriage we learned last week that Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenneger are separating. Now, this week, we have heard the revelations that the former California governor fathered a child with a household employee over a decade ago. As surprising as this news is to some, I doubt it can come as a complete shock to Ms. Shriver and I believe it need not signal the end of her marriage. Infidelity on the part of a husband or wife is not a reason to erase one's marital vows. In fact, in the aftermath of an affair, even...

    In 2005, Maria Shriver told Vanity Fair that many people were surprised that a Kennedy clan member would marry Hollywood bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger. "People at first were like, 'You married the other side of the tracks.' " She said, "They have trouble with the class thing. ... Everyone assumed that I was supposed to marry someone like a John Kerry, some preppy that had gone to Harvard or Yale. I didn't want to marry those boys - I did not like them. I had been around them my whole life. I interrupted the story line." Tuesday the Los Angeles Times...

    After announcing his separation from wife Maria Shriver this week, a woman has alleged she was just one of many mistresses that shattered Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 25-year marriage. The 63-year-old Terminator actor denies an affair with Gigi Goyette, but the 52-year-old woman has said: ‘There were so many other women. About 13 have come out of the woodwork.’ She claims she met Schwarzenegger in 1975, when she was a 16-year-old child actress on Little House On The Prairie. Gigi claims that she slept with the star once in that year but did not see him again until 1989, during which...
