    Clarence Thomas compares ‘modern-day liberal’ to a Klansman in new film Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has blasted Democrats, including former Senate Judiciary Committee and now-presidential candidate Joe Biden, over the sexual-misconduct allegations against the jurist during his 1991 confirmation hearings. Thomas opens up about the process in a new documentary and claims the “biggest impediment” to his life and legal career was not the KKK but the “modern-day liberal.”
  • Anita Hill: I Could Totally Vote For Joe Biden

    Almost thirty years after the fact, Anita Hill still holds Joe Biden responsible for not defending her enthusiastically enough in Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearing. She pointedly refused to accept a very belated expression of regret from the former VP earlier this year, and to this day sounds bitter about her interactions with the Democratic frontrunner.But would she vote for Biden if he ran against Trump? “Of course I could,” Hill tells NBC: Anita Hill said she considers Joe Biden partly responsible for how she was treated during Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearings in 1991 — but she’s...

    The look on Biden’s face. The forceful, accusatory finger. Her reaction. It all comes together in a photo that captures how certain men see the world. On Tuesday afternoon, a CUNY professor sent out a series of tweets recounting Joe Biden’s flagrantly horny interactions with women in the audience for his speech. As individual cringey lines began their echo chamber orbit through retweets and screenshots, one crucial piece of context was missing. The speech was from 1973. The American people already know where Joe Biden is coming from with regards to women. We know how he treated Anita Hill. We...

    RUSH: Do you realize it may well be the Democrat primary race is over? In New Hampshire, Joe Biden is blowing out Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders was up 30 points nationally, he was up 25 or 30 points in New Hampshire, the last poll, and Biden has just launched over Bernie Sanders. This may not be bad, by the way. Don’t misunderstand. When I say “us,” meaning the Trumpster, may not be a bad thing. A bunch of mad Bernie voters might end up voting for Trump before the end of the day, but nevertheless — and Trump’s even tweeting:...

    Anita Hill took aim at Joe Biden once again Thursday, arguing that the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct might have begun sooner if the Democratic Party's 2020 front-runner would have done a better job of handling her claims of sexual harassment against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas more than 30 years ago. Writing in the New York Times, Hill slammed the former vice president and U.S. senator from Delaware, who was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 when Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment during his Supreme Court confirmation process. “If the Senate Judiciary Committee, led then by...

    History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable “fact” with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.Hill’s testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. It’s reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters...

    It's true that Joe Biden did his best to help Anita Hill, including concealing witnesses who would have been a disaster under examination. But even he admitted to his colleague that Hill was lying. Former vice president Joe Biden repeatedly said on The View on Friday that he believed Anita Hill from the moment he heard her tale of sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas. But he previously told Sen. Arlen Specter that it was clear her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee included lies. “Not only didn’t I vote for Clarence Thomas, I believed her from the beginning. I was...

    Daily Wire ^ | 4-22-19 | AMANDA PRESTIGIACOMO
    Anita Hill made her claim to fame by accusing Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearing back in 1991. The Left painted Thomas as a misogynistic monster despite the glaring contradictions, lies and lack of evidence to support such a narrative. The U.S. House and Senate dismissed the baseless accusations presented by Hill, confirmed Thomas to the court, and the public largely viewed Hill as discredited. Despite all this, the Left, through HBO, continues to smear Thomas for the irredeemable sin of being conservative while being black. On April 16 a slanderous film called Confirmation, a “fictionalized...

    Anita Hill has confirmed that former Vice President Joe Biden reached out to her by phone earlier this month to express regret over how she was treated during her 1991 testimony regarding Justice Clarence Thomas, but said she found the conversation unsatisfying and wouldn't describe his comments as an apology. “I cannot be satisfied by simply saying I’m sorry for what happened to you. I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose,” Hill told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday. Hill told the Times on Wednesday that she...

    In countless conversations over the past year, former Vice President Joe Biden, his advisers and his broad network of friends and family have openly discussed the vulnerabilities he would face if he ran for president. A voting record that is sometimes at odds with the Democratic Party’s leftward shift. His age. And the affectionate brand of politics that has made him beloved by many Democrats and a target of Republicans for years. What Biden likely didn’t expect was to be confronting those issues so fully before even launching a campaign. On Friday, Biden will make his first public appearance since...

    Remorse for doing his job in 1991 is neither necessary nor likely to get him off the hook for being an old white male politician. After 27 years, Anita Hill is still waiting for a personal apology from Joe Biden. Apparently, the former vice president has yet to reach out for a private tęte-ŕ-tęte with the law professor who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings. But while Biden hasn’t been able to pick up the phone to talk to her about events from the fall of 1991, he understands that his connection to...

    Former vice president and likely 2020 presidential candidate, Joe Biden, attacked the United States’ “white man’s culture,” during an appearance at the Biden Courage Awards, which honors those working to combat sexual assault on college campuses. Biden said America’s racist culture is why Anita Hill wasn’t able to stop Clarence Thomas’ nomination to the Supreme Court. “A really notable woman, Anita Hill, professor, showed the courage of a lifetime talking about her experience being harassed

    NEW YORK (AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned “a white man’s culture” as he lashed out at violence against women and, more specifically, lamented his role in the Supreme Court confirmation hearings that undermined Anita Hill’s credibility nearly three decades ago. Biden, a Democratic presidential prospect who often highlights his white working-class roots, said Hill, who is black, should not have been forced to face a panel of “a bunch of white guys” about her sexual harassment allegations against Clarence Thomas. “To this day I regret I couldn’t come up with a way to give her the kind...

    In an unexpected speech shortly before the state Senate adjourned its 2019 session, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax cautioned against “political lynchings without any due process” and said “the truth is on my side” in the sexual assault allegations he faces. Referencing Virginia’s history of slavery and lynchings of African-Americans, Fairfax told senators from the dais Sunday that Virginia needs to decide what the next 400 years of state history will look like. “If we go backwards in a rush to judgment, and we allow for political lynchings without any due process, any facts, any evidence being heard, then I think...

    WASHINGTON — Team Clinton on Tuesday made it clear to Vice President Joe Biden that it will push back hard if he jumps into the Democratic presidential race against her. Manhattan Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, a Clinton loyalist, sent the first warning volley by tweeting: “Has everyone forgotten & forgiven the @JoeBiden Anita Hill sexual harassment debacle? I’m with the most qualified woman in the race — Hillary.” It was a not-so-subtle reminder that Biden’s long legislative track record in the Senate — not to mention his tenure as veep — will be fair game if he decides to take on...

    Students and alumni of the Savanna College of Art and Design (SCAD) are petitioning the school to remove Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas’s name from a campus building. Created by SCAD alumna Sage Lucero, 22, the petition “Take a Sexual Predator’s Name Off of SCAD’s Building” has racked up more than 2,200 signatures as of Monday, and takes aim at the school’s Clarence Thomas Center for Historic Preservation. The building, Lucero told PJ Media, “should be renamed after Anita Hill instead.” In a Sunday interview, Lucero said she started the petition after watching Christine Blasey Ford testify against Brett...

    After a day of wrenching testimony from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford — who has accused him of sexual assault in high school — more Americans say they believe Ford's account over Kavanaugh's denials, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Wednesday. In choosing who is telling the truth, 45 percent said Ford is, up from 32 percent ahead of her Sept. 27 testimony. A third (33 percent) said Kavanaugh is the one telling the truth, up slightly from 26 percent before he testified but not as much of a rise as for Ford. The daylong...

    Washington never ceases to amuse. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.), himself no stranger to leaking, is furious that Democrat staff memos on politicizing judicial confirmations were read and disclosed. The fact that Republicans (including myself) read Democrats' documents on an open server to which they had an affirmative grant of access does not stop his histrionics. Just as amusing, the Washington Post ran two recent editorials indignant that Republicans had read and leaked the Democratic memos. But where was the media sanctimony when, during the Clarence Thomas nomination battle, the Post took illegal possession of the Anita Hill documents, or...
