  • Monica Lewinsky disagrees with Hillary on whether Bill Clinton's affair was an 'abuse of power'

    Business Insider ^ | 3/15/2018 | Alex Loxkie
    Hillary Clinton has defended her husband, Bill Clinton, over his affair with Monica Lewinsky by directly contradicting Lewinsky's characterization of what happened. In 1995, when Lewinsky was a 22-year-old White House intern, she had multiple sexual encounters with the then-president, which he later lied under oath about. After the affair became public, Lewinsky was targeted by pundits belonging to both parties and reported feeling bullied to the point of feeling suicidal. Back in March, a few months into the #MeToo movement of women coming forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, mostly against powerful men, Lewinsky wrote that she had been...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Actor Alec Baldwin followed up his latest parody portrayal of President Donald Trump with a serious call Sunday night for voters to use the Nov. 6 midterm elections to peacefully "overthrow" the government. After reprising his role as Trump on "Saturday Night Live," Baldwin flew to New Hampshire, where he was the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's annual fall fundraising dinner. "The way we implement change in America is through elections. We change governments here at home in an orderly and formal way," he said. "In that orderly and formal way and lawful way,...

On the subject of #MeToo, she told the publication: 'I just think they're douchebags. They're not champions. I just think they're losers. I don't like them. … 'How do I explain the fact that I got a GQ Man of the Year award and no women's magazines and no women's organisations have supported me? 'It's all bullshit. It's a lie.

    Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour on Friday launched a racial attack against Sen. Susan Collins, saying the Maine Republican was guilty of espousing “white supremacy” with her decision to support the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Ms. Sarsour, a prominent Palestinian-American activist, blasted Ms. Collins on Twitter as a “white woman” and the “mother & grandmother of white women in America who gave us a Donald Trump presidency.”

    The media's last resort is as inevitable as it is hilarious. "The Kremlin’s For Kavanaugh: Russian State Media Back Trump's Supreme Court Nominee" - The Daily Beast Why settle for McCarthyism as a metaphor? Does Moscow have any of the tapes of Kavanaugh's mass rapes? Mueller must investigate, after indicting Mark Judge on a dozen unrelated charges until he turns state's evidence and is willing to parrot back anything Mueller's minions tell him to say. Trump’s disregard for human rights and values is balm to the Kremlin’s sanction-wounded heart, which is why the Russians were quick to jump on the...

    BISMARCK — A Minnesota woman pleaded guilty to voting twice during the 2016 election in a Cass County (N.D.) court Tuesday, Sept. 25, marking a rare prosecution of such an offense in North Dakota. Hannan Yassin Aboubaker of Shakopee, Minn., entered an Alford plea on a Class A misdemeanor "election offense," meaning she didn't admit wrongdoing but acknowledged she may have been found guilty based on the evidence. Her sentence was deferred and she was placed on unsupervised probation for six months, two months after which the case would be dismissed and the file would be sealed.

    FULL TITLE: Not All Women: GOP Women Are Furious Over Democrats' Anti-Kavanaugh Smear Campaign; UPDATE: Dem Strategists Worry The Democratic Party is the one that supports women, is for women, and is fighting for their rights. And yet, some of their biggest supporters in business and media are absolute pigs. Look at disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, former CBS News Executive Les Moonves, and of course, former Hollywood media mogul Harvey Weinstein. There was JFK, Ted Kennedy, and Bill Clinton. All parties above treated women like garbage. They’re sleaze. Yet, it surely helps to keep news of...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 10/5/2018 | John Kass
    Future historians probably won’t devote entire volumes to Hollywood actor Matt Damon for his part in the grotesque savaging of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Sadly, Damon will most likely be just a footnote, some jester in motley, participating in the American political circus. It is that circus in which Kavanaugh, a man of exemplary public reputation, has had his honor stripped by the political left, accused without evidence or corroboration, as a high school sexual predator, a gang rapist, a drunken bully and boor. If Damon is remembered at all in this, it will be for a bit part, his mimicry...

    Reminiscent of Al Franken on the Late Show last October, on Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO, actor Ben Affleck charged that President Bush “probably also leaked” Valerie Plame's name and so “if he did, you can be hung for that! That's treason!” In full rant, an apoplectic Affleck asserted: “You could be killed. That's not a joking around Tom DeLay 'I'll do a year, I bribed the state officials with corporate money.' That's like they shoot you in the battlefield for doing that.”

    Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live gleefully piled on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and did so less than a year after this very same SNL came out in full-throated support for credibly accused serial groper Al Franken. Let’s back up a bit… The reason Democrats and their establishment media allies are now launching conspiracy theories about Kavanaugh “lying” about his teenage drinking is that the sexual misconduct allegations against him have collapsed. Simply put, by any objective measure, Kavanaugh has been wrongly accused, smeared, a victim of sexual McCarthysim. In my four decades of watching politics, never before have...

    ...But some seem to welcome a slide in that direction. “Tell me again why we shouldn’t confront Republicans where they eat, where they sleep, and where they work until they stop being complicit in the destruction of our democracy,” tweeted Ian Millhiser, justice editor at ThinkProgress. “Because it is both wrong & supremely dangerous,” replied Georgetown Law professor Randy Barnett. “When one side denies the legitimacy of good faith disagreement over policy — as well as over constitutional principle — the other side will eventually reciprocate. Neither a constitutional republic nor a democracy can survive that.” Princeton’s much-admired political theorist...

    The Democrats sacrificed Al Franken in order to shore up their effort to win a Senate seat in Alabama. They knew that Minnesota’s governor would appoint another Democrat to replace Franken, so they could net a Senate seat with an upset pickup in Alabama, which is exactly what happened. Many Minnesota Democrats are still unhappy that Franken was forced out of the Senate, not by Republicans but by his own Democratic colleagues. Now it is starting to look as though the Democrats may be throwing Deputy DNC Chairman Keith Ellison overboard in a similar manner. We noted last week that...

    President Trump in an exclusive interview with Hill.TV said Tuesday he ordered the release of classified documents in the Russia collusion case to show the public the FBI probe started as a “hoax,” and that exposing it could become one of the “crowning achievements” of his presidency. “What we’ve done is a great service to the country, really,” Trump said in a 45-minute, wide-ranging interview in the Oval Office. “I hope to be able to call this, along with tax cuts and regulation and all the things I’ve done… in its own way this might be the most important thing...

    Debra Katz, the attorney for the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, said that it is not her client’s job to corroborate her claims. Katz said on CNN on Monday that investigators should be responsible for proving Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh held her down and drunkenly groped her while at a party in high school. During the interview, Katz revealed that there was another girl present at the party, which allegedly took place in 1982 while Kavanaugh was attending Georgetown Prep. Ford previously told the Washington Post that there were four boys at the party but never...

    Attorney Debra Katz made the rounds Monday on morning television to argue her client’s sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be taken seriously, an appeal accepted even by the White House. But while her client's claims have raised bipartisan concerns about Kavanaugh, Katz, a longtime Democratic donor known for representing sexual harassment accusers, also has a history of downplaying or dismissing accusations made by women against Democratic politicians -- including former President Bill Clinton and former Minnesota Sen. Al Franken.

Can you imagine that "Sex Predaters", Weinstein & Morgan were abusing and using women without their consent for their weird sex escapades while they were financing and shouting out to Americans to support and elect both Obama and Clinton as POTUS. Clinton and soon, Obama will have been found to have committed worse crimes against the people and nation of the United States of America. If you don't think so...just just tuned...

    Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she didn't know what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand "was trying to say" when she suggested this week former President Bill Clinton should have stepped down over his affair with Monica Lewinsky that tarnished his presidency. "I don't exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say," Clinton told host Rita Cosby on WABC Radio in an exclusive interview Friday while promoting her new book "What Happened." When asked if she could have been more supportive of women who claimed to have been sexually harassed by her husband, Clinton said each...
