    The recent Capitol Hill hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh may have been the biggest flashpoint of the #metoo movement to date. The hearings raised the question of standards, in the #metoo era. Are women to be believed based solely on an unproven allegation? If corroboration is required, then what's good enough? And who gets to decide? Those are some of the tricky questions raised by abuse allegations made against a top Democrat official Congressman Keith Ellison by an ex-girlfriend who spoke to Sharyl this week.
  • Monica Lewinsky disagrees with Hillary on whether Bill Clinton's affair was an 'abuse of power'

    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...

    As calls mount from both the left and the right for Democratic state Rep. Jovan Melton to step down from his House District 41 seat in Aurora, supporters, including former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb, argued Thursday that a double standard is being applied to Melton by the leadership of the Democratic-controlled Colorado House and the Colorado Democratic Party chair, Morgan Carroll. ... Webb ... called out the leadership of the Democratic Party ... “Jim Crow system of justice” and a “political lynching” of Melton. And while they didn’t go so far as to tell African American voters not to vote...

The documents will be unsealed next Wednesday, except for documents or portions of them that contain "restricted identifiers" or "financial source documents." Ellison's attorney Carla Kjellberg said Friday her client will appeal for a stay of the order. "Keith and Kim Ellison remain jointly opposed to this effort to exploit the details of their personal life, and the lives of their children, for political gain," she said in a statement....

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board on Wednesday that Democrats would make exposing President Donald Trump’s tax returns a top priority if they win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in November and she is elected Speaker of the House. Democrats have been obsessed with Trump’s tax returns since the 2016 election, convinced that they will turn up information that would damage or disqualify him, though the information has always been available to the Internal Revenue Service. Last year, MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow was mocked for hyping a Trump tax return...

    For decades, Bob Vlaisavljevich voted for Democrats. But in 2016, Vlaisavljevich, the mayor of the small northern Minnesota mining town of Eveleth -- population, roughly 3,700 -- changed his tune and voted for Donald Trump. His decision was nothing short of a local political earthquake, one reflected in the final vote tally in the historically Democratic congressional district -- Trump bested Hillary Clinton by 15 points. Two years later, Vlaisavljevich does not regret his decision, and plans to vote Republican next month, in what could be a warning sign for Democrats awaiting a blue wave in in midterm elections on...

    The back seat of every Minneapolis police squad car will soon display a message in English and Spanish: You have the right to remain silent about your place of birth, immigration status and everything else. Mayor Jacob Frey has promised to keep Minneapolis safe for immigrants as federal authorities ramp up enforcement of immigration laws. After mentioning the placards in his State of the City speech in May, Frey held a news conference Wednesday to reveal them to the public. “Right now, cities have to step up and do what our federal administration and Congress won’t,” said Frey. “We will...

  • Bill Clinton’s Sexual Assault Allegations Are ‘Different’, Hillary Says

    10/09/2018 11:09:02 PM PDT · by blam · 45 replies
    The numerous allegations of sexual harassment levied against him mean President Trump is a reprehensible monster, according to Hillary Clinton, but when it comes to similar claims made about her husband, former President Bill Clinton, it’s a different story. That’s what Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour during an interview Tuesday when Amanpour prodded her about the allegations facing her husband and how she squares supporting him with her criticisms of men like Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The difference-maker, according to Clinton, is the fact that the allegations facing her husband were thoroughly investigated by a federal...

    A Hennepin County family court referee said he wants to rule by Friday whether to unseal U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s divorce file in response to a legal effort by the Star Tribune and Alpha News. Referee Jason T. Hutchinson explained after an hourlong court hearing on Tuesday that if he did decide to unseal the file on Friday, it would still not be available for immediate public view. Instead, he would set a later date for opening it that would allow time for Ellison’s attorney to appeal the decision. The motions follow allegations by Ellison’s ex-girlfriend, Karen Monahan, that the...

    Talk about a Freudian slip, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, with a slip of the tongue, voiced what anyone paying attention already knows, that being that there are no moderate Democrats left. Doing what Democrats do best, projecting and flipping the narrative, the head of the party who called un accomplished democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez its “future,” appeared on MSNBC to suggest the GOP is the party of extremists — except his tongue couldn’t keep up with his deceptive mind. “When you see the mistreatment of Dr. Ford, that’s a mistreatment of every woman across America,” Perez declared. “When...

    Amazon has approved funding for an Islamic extremist British charity called The Muslim Research and Development Foundation, through its Amazon Smile programme, The Times reports. The charity (MRDF) which according to the government’s counter-extremism commissioner Sara Khan, is the “main Salafist organisation in the UK”. It was founded and formerly chaired by Haitham al-Haddad, a 52 year old Saudi Islamic scholar. Khan also stated, “Haitham al-Haddad’s views are misogynistic, racist and homophobic. They promote a supremacist ‘us versus them’ world view that wrongly makes Muslims feel that they can’t be fully British.” In addition he has also been described as...

    SIREN: Pollsters Say Democrats Might Fall Short In Retaking the House...Which Could Trigger Another Meltdown (FULL TITLE) So, with Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court after a hellacious confirmation battle, it’s no shocker that liberals are angry. They lost. We won. Regardless, Democrats losing means it was a great day in America. Still, we’ve heard about the blue wave, the hyper-Democratic voter enthusiasm, and how some revolution will begin now that Kavanaugh has been seated, undoubtedly constrained to the most liberal parts of the country. The generic ballot advantage has favored the Democratic Party all year, though, in...

    Apparently triggered by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat Socialist running for the House of Representatives, demanded an end to the Electoral College, and in so doing, also exhibited her complete ignorance about our history and form of governance. “It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic,” she said in response to another tweet lamenting the fact that four Supreme Court justices have been appointed by two Republican presidents.
