Skip to comments.In attack on GOP, Sen. Mazie Hirono perfectly describes Ellison’s handling of abuse allegations
Posted on 09/25/2018 2:19:28 AM PDT by Libloather
Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, has covered herself in shame these last couple of weeks.
Her desire to see Brett Kavanaugh's chances of replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy destroyed by any means necessary has been a sickening display of petty, short-sighted partisan zealotry.
But there is one unintentionally humorous moment in the parade of awful that has vomited forth from the senators office: The moment this week when she attacked the GOP for supposedly behaving like ... Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.?
Republicans cannot face the idea that women do not sit around making these things up, Hirono said Monday on MSNBC, referring to the two allegations of sexual misconduct brought against the Supreme Court nominee.

I am sure she thinks that Bill Clinton should have been removed from office because Willey, Jones, and Broaderick must have been telling the truth.
Throughout the ages, for instance, women have lied about who is the father of their baby.
She seems enamored of the No True Scotsman fallacy. She’s got plenty of company eg AB Stoddard.
‘Why would someone lie?’ is not proof.

Why would someone lie? is not proof.<<
You are right of course, but it does lead to the court process of impeachment of the witness, explaining exactly why would they lie. That is why last minute accusations are so pernicious, no time to examine that question. Aspects like why would they cleanse their social media before going public? Why was the one woman at the scene described as a man? Did she really write the letter or did her lawyer do it? Why the salacious parts with clarity but the rest of the details murky? What happened in 2012, many years later, to make the story come out? Those kind of questions.
Proof is tough, and time only erodes evidence, especially eyewitness and victim.
This witch should either be impeached or blocked from Congress. She insulted every American male. A sexist bigot.
We ladies don’t care for dumb witch much either. Crazy Mazie needs to go.
She’s jealous no one in HS asked her out.
-——Has anyone confirmed her immigration process was perfectly legal? ——
And if it wasn’t ? Are we going to deport a sitting US senator ? And who is going to do it?
That bar or benchmark for immigration status meaning something no longer exists since Obama.
She is the people of Hawaii problem in the long run, they elected her....
Ellison will be the 800 pound gorilla in the corner the Senate hearing. The stench of hypocrisy should be burning the nostrils of Democrats. Consider that if it were not for that single damning photo, Al Franken would still be Senator.
Im with you that this POS lives in Hawaii, but there are more Mazies in this country every day. Mazie must be Japanese for Maxine. Dont take her lightly..shes of dangerous rhetoric.
My point was when we look to the immigration status of current office holders, it makes us look unhinged...like you did in your post...did you think anybody in Hawaii cares if when she immigrated as a child if was kosher ?
When they are running for office, it matters...vet them deeply...
In defense of Senator Hirono, some are saying that she is still going around kicking orphans every day, but I hear that she hasn’t kicked orphans since last Saturday.
She also says she didn’t really sexually abuse those dogs.
I dont like being critical of conservative freepers to the point of calling them unhinged. Its a free country though...and I live just across the bay from you!
Maybe you missed it, but I used the word “us” looking unhinged, not you as a person...
As in this website...
lots of different people, media, activist peruse this site looking for ways to undermine us...by pointing out silly ideas like getting duly elected representatives immigration status as a implied reason they don’t legitimately have the seat...
Crazy Maisie says: Republicans cannot face the idea that women do not sit around making these things up,
as she aggressively dissed Pubbies for their defense of allegations against Kavanaugh.
Former DNC co-chair and ex-Cong Ellison, now a candidate for Minnessota AG, is accused of abusing an ex-girlfriend.
She, at least, has police reports to document Ellison's disgusting behavior.
None of Kav's accusers have police reports though they claim to have witnessed criminal behavior.
Porn lawyer Avenatti's latest "proven accuser," Julie Swetnick, an adult attending parties with HS kids,
said she saw drinks spiked and boys waiting in line to rape girls at 10 parties she attended.
Yet she never warned young girls of possible rapes, nor did she contact the police about criminal behavior.
This is what crazy Maizie wants us to believe.
The Democrats Creed ---what they really believe (hat tip Michael Kelly)
Democrats believe President Bill Clinton. And have always believed him. Democrats believed it when Clinton said he had never been drafted in the Vietnam War and believed him later when Clinton said he had merely forgotten to mention that he had been drafted in the Vietnam War.
Democrats believed him when Clinton he said he hadnt had sex with Gennifer Flowers and believed him later, when Clinton reportedly said he did bed her down.
Democrats believed the president did not rent out the Lincoln Bedroom to celebrities, did not sell access to himself and the vice president to hundreds of well-heeled special pleaders and did not supervise the largest, most systematic money-laundering operation in campaign finance history, collecting more than $ 3 million in illegal and improper donations.
Democrats believe that Charlie Trie and James Riady were motivated by nothing but patriotism for their adopted country.
Democrats believed President Clinton when he conceded that his administration mistakenly obtained the FBI files of more than 300 people, including many top Republicans and believes it was the result of a completely honest bureaucratic snafu involving security clearances.
Democrats believed Clintons chief of staff, Leon Panetta, when he told reporters that obviously a mistake was made and apologized to the people whose FBI files wound up at the White House. Democrats believed Clinton when he said I completely support what my COS Panetta said about the affair.
Democrats believed Vice President Gore when he said that he had made dunning calls to political contributors on a few occasions from his White House office, and believed him when he said that, actually, a few meant 46.
Democrats devoutly believe in "no controlling legal authority"....but not for Nixon or Trump.
Democrats believed Bruce Babbitt when he said that the $286,000 contributed to the DNC by Indian tribes opposed to granting a casino license to rival tribes had nothing to do with his denial of the license. Democrats believed the secretary when he said that he had not been instructed in this matter by then-White House deputy chief of staff Harold Ickes.
Democrats believed him when he said later that he had told lobbyist and friend Paul Eckstein that Ickes had told him to move on the casino decision, but that he had been lying to Eckstein. Democrats agreed with the secretary that it is an outrage that anyone would question his integrity.
Democrats firmly believe in the Clinton Standard of adherence to the nations campaign finance and bribery laws, enunciated by the president on March 7, 1997: I dont believe you can find any evidence of the fact that I had changed government policy solely because of a contribution. Democrats noted with approval the use of the word evidence and also the use of the word solely. Democrats devoutly believe, as Clinton does, that it is proper to change government policy to address the concerns of people who have"given the president money, as long as nobody can find "evidence" of this being the "sole" reason.
Democrats believe president Clinton lived up to his promise to preside over the most ethical administration in American history that indicted former agriculture secretary Mike Espy did not accept $35,000 in illegal favors from Tyson Foods and other regulated businesses.
Democrats believe that indicted former housing secretary Henry Cisneros did not lie to the FBI and tell others to lie to cover up $250,000 in blackmail payments to his former mistress.
Democrats believe that convicted former associate attorney general Webster Hubbell was not involved in the obstruction of justice when the presidents minions arranged for Hubbell to receive $ 400,000 in sweetheart consulting deals at a time when he was reneging on his promise to cooperate with Kenneth Starrs Whitewater investigation.
Democrats believe, as Harvey Weinstein does, that Paula Jones is a cheap tramp who was asking for it, that Kathleen Willey is a cheap tramp who was asking for it, and that Monica Lewinsky is a cheap tramp who was asking for it.
Democrats firmly believe Monica Lewinsky was just fantasizing in her 20 hours of taped conversation in which she reportedly detailed her sexual relationship with the president and begged Linda Tripp to join her in lying about the relationship and that any gifts, correspondence, telephone calls and the 37 post-employment White House visits that may have passed between Lewinsky and the president are evidence only of a platonic relationship. Journos believe that such innocent intimate friendships are quite common between middle-aged married men and young single women, and also between presidents of the United States and White House interns.
Democrats see nothing suspicious in the report that the presidents intimate pal, Vernon Jordan, arranged a $40,000-per-year job for Lewinsky shortly after she signed but before she filed an affidavit saying she had not had sex with the president.
Nor did Democrats read anything significant into the fact that the ambassador to the United Nations, Bill Richardson, visited Lewinsky at the Watergate to offer her a job.
Democrat believe the instructions Lewinsky gave Linda Tripp informing her on how to properly perjure herself in the Willey matter simply wrote themselves.
Democrats believe, as does Hillary, that The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, Newsweek, Time, U.S. News & World Report, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS and NPR are all part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to malign the saintly Clintons.
