  • Dem Rep Refuses to Resign, Accuses Pelosi of Knowing About Harassment Allegations Last Year

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 12/5/17 | Paul Crookston
    Democratic Party leaders are calling for Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D., Nev.) to resign over sexual harassment allegations, but he is refusing to do so—and even making counter accusations. Kihuen told ABC News that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), as well as Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (N.M.), knew about the allegations last year and did nothing. "I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan—they knew about these allegations last year," Kihuen said. "They looked into them. They didn't find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars...

    There are a few topics that usually elicit startling hypocrisy from both major political parties, depending on whether or not they hold power. One is judges and filibusters (although the GOP's application of the Reid Rule seems to have ended that debate), another is deficit spending (after applauding President Obama for nearly doubling the national debt over eight years, Democrats have rediscovered this problem, wielding it to oppose a plan to let Americans keep more of their own money), and yet another is good governance 'process.' The party in control tends to prize victory over pristine process, whereas the 'out'...
  • Christian Support for Roy Moore ‘Looks Like Hypocrisy to the Outside World’

    The Atlantic ^ | 11/24/2017 | Emma Green
    Before this month, Roy Moore was best known nationally for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama state supreme-court building. Now, the aspiring senator is accused of hitting on teens at an Alabama mall and inappropriately touching a 14-year-old girl. These allegations may be the end of Moore. Congressional Republicans have started disowning him, and he’s tentatively dropping in state polls. But it’s possible that the reputation of evangelical Christians will also suffer. Despite condemnations from a number of nationally prominent Christian leaders and a few in Alabama, many of the state’s faithful continue to back the...

    The Democratic Party is trying to figure out how it feels about sexual misconduct when the accused party is an elected or prominent Democrat.  After many years of reflexive excuse-making, victim-mocking and wagon-circling on Bill Clinton's behalf, a number of Democrats and liberals are belatedly coming around to the stance that perhaps he should have been run out of office in the late 1990's after all.  Others are forcefully pushing back in his defense, while still others are contorting themselves in order to blame for their own moral confusion and inconsistency on Republican partisanship, or whatever.  Presented with 'The Bill...

    Over the last 18 months, evangelical Christians have been asked how they could vote for a serial adulterer like Donald Trump while condemning the alleged serial adulterer Bill Clinton as unfit for office. The general response has been: 1) Trump was certainly not our ideal candidate and we do deplore his past; but 2) he seems to have made some changes and is open to our input; and 3) it was either him or Hillary Clinton, and for the sake of the unborn, for the sake of our religious liberties, and for the sake of our security, he got our...

    The verdict is in. I pronounce Democrat leaders, left-wing feminists and Beltway journalists guilty of gross negligence and hypocrisy over a dirty rotten sleazeball in their midst. For the past 11 weeks, Bob Menendez has been on trial for 18 counts of bribery, fraud and corruption involving nearly $1 million in gifts and donations. The jury remained deadlocked as of Tuesday. A new Media Research Center analysis reported that ABC, CBS and NBC devoted 40 times more of their morning and evening TV newscast coverage this past week to Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore's alleged sexual assault accusers than...

We're waiting.

    An Oregon masseuse filed a complaint last year accusing Al Gore of sexual abuse following a nearly three-hour massage session at an upscale Portland hotel in 2006, reports the Portland Oregonian. The alleged incident took place at the Hotel Lucia Oct. 24... “He pleaded, groped me, grabbed me, engulfed me in embrace, tongue kissed me, massaged me, grabbed my breasts,” the woman says in her detailed complaint to Portland police officers and posted by the Fox 12 Oregon TV station. At one point, she says Gore pinned her down, resulting in an injury to her left leg and knee, and...

    Five years ago at the Democratic National Convention, I went to a Planned Parenthood rally, where one speaker was TV actress Lisa Edelstein. “Do not go to the polls alone,” she told us. “Drag somebody, if she’s a woman especially, because those women are going to vote for Obama—if they know what’s good for them.” Edelstein is hardly the only Hollywood figure to make the case that liberal policies are crucial to women’s happiness and welfare. Yet, with the media still reeling from the revelations about powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s behavior toward women, it’s time to examine both the...

    After making a public statement about the sexual-abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck is facing accusations of his own. The actress Hilarie Burton tweeted yesterday that Affleck grabbed her breast while she was interviewing him on TRL in the mid-200os. (You can see video of the alleged assault here). And this afternoon, Hollywood makeup artist Annamarie Tendler tweeted that Affleck groped her at a Golden Globes party in 2014. “He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack,” she wrote. Tendler added, “Like most women in these situations I didn’t say anything but I...

    "Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom's instruction." (Proverbs 29:18) Ancient wisdom from a Higher Authority, which is available to anyone who takes the time to consider it, was provided to constrain people like Harvey Weinstein from acts he has been accused of committing. In an age when we have cast off most restraints -- from restrictions on abortion to sanctioning same-sex marriage to normalizing the use of nudity, crude language and sex in Hollywood films, not to mention wisdom -- why is anything off limits? Who decides where the...

The “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” singer has called for tougher gun control measures in the wake of the mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this week that claimed the lives of 59 people and left more than 500 others injured. “The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad,” Sinatra wrote on Twitter in response to a Daily Kos article posted...
  • NFL owners struggled to retain control after Trump's attacks, rise of player protests

    "It certainly was my takeaway that the commissioner was looking for a way for the protests to end," Smith said Friday when asked about his 30-minute conversation with Goodell, while declining to offer specifics about what was discussed. Goodell declined to comment, but a league source did not dispute Smith's account. "Knowing the league the way I know the league, they are first and foremost concerned about the impact on their business," Smith said. "That's always their first concern. I mean, who are we kidding?" Nobody was kidding when many of the NFL's highest-profile owners, including Robert Kraft of the...

    President Trump, in an exclusive interview with "Fox & Friends," said that NFL owners are “afraid” to act against their players protesting the national anthem at games across the country. “The NFL is in a box and they have to do something about it,” Trump told Fox News' Pete Hegseth, in the interview aired Thursday morning. “I think they’re afraid of their players, if you want to know the truth,” Trump said. In the same interview, Trump also touted the newly released Republican tax reform framework, describing the plan as the “largest reduction in terms of dollars in any plan...

    Racism is widespread in English football with police having to deal with hundreds of incidents from the top of the game right down to grassroots level, an investigation has revealed. It also revealed that Chelsea supporters have been involved in the highest number of reported racist incidents as they travelled to and from matches on trains. The information, gathered from 24 police forces across the country, shows there have been over 350 incidents since 2012. But as that only accounts for around half the police forces in the country, the actual figure is likely to be much higher. The charity...

    Why is it okay to disrespect the American flag, okay to wear a t-shirt praising communist butcher Fidel Castro, okay to depict cops as pigs, but not okay to wear a Christian t-shirt? Everyone is weighing in in the disrespectful NFL flag-sitters, so I might as well. Here are several points that make the case that NFL owners and the commissioner are utter hypocrites for allowing players to disrespect the American flag: 1) The NFL is a private company — it is not the federal government. Every private company has codes of conduct. 2) The NFL forced RGIII (Robert Griffin...
