    A part of me wants this lady to go away, another wants her to continue to give the Democratic Party migraines; she’s also great for boosting the GOP’s enthusiasm. Hillary Clinton just continues to make her way into the spotlight. With the latest accusations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Hillary decided to give her two-cents on Rita Cosby’s radio show last week, noting that accountability has to be exacted regarding these allegations. I bet you can guess what happened next? Cosby asked about the allegations surrounding...

Nassar was accused of molesting dozens of high profile athletes -- including Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney -- while telling the women he was simply performing routine physical exams.

    Judicial Watch ^ | November 22, 2017

Various media outlets report that John Conyers, the longest serving House member and ranking Democrat of the powerful Judiciary Committee, secretly settled a sexual harassment claim by an employee with taxpayer funds from his office budget. Additionally, multiple former staff members accuse the 88-year-old lawmaker of repeatedly making sexual advances toward female staff. Democratic colleagues have already called for a House Ethics Committee probe, but theres little hope Conyers will be punished since...

    ( Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) held a forum Tuesday on the future of the Electoral College, which he claimed was rooted in slavery. We also must face up to the cold reality that the Electoral College is rooted in slavery, Conyers said in his opening statement. Conyers referenced a claim by one of the witnesses, Yale Law professor Akhil Amar, that states opposed direct elections for the president, because in a direct election system, the North would outnumber the South, whose many slaves could not vote, but the Electoral College instead let each southern state count its slaves, although...

    The House Ethics Committee announced Wednesday that it will extend its inquiry into Rep. John Conyers's (D., Mich.) payments to his former chief of staff. The committee said it needed more time to review a report by the Office of Congressional Ethics, the Associated Press reports. The report suggests that there is "substantial reason" to believe that Conyers paid his chief of staff, Cynthia Martin, for work she did not perform. In April of 2016, Conyers claimed to have placed Martin on unpaid leave, after she pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property. However, the ethics office said that she was...

    staffers were tasked with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources! One affidavit from a former female employee states that she was tasked with flying in women for the congressman. One of my duties while working for Rep. Conyers was to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources, said her affidavit. (A second staffer alleged in an interview that Conyers used taxpayer resources to fly women to him.)

But behind closed doors inside their own safe spaces, a different story unfoldsone in which the most ardent supporters of the Womens March are the oppressors. Speaking at the Womens Convention in Detroit, an event organized by the leaders of the Womens March, transgender women berated conference organizers for assuming transgender speakers were qualified to only speak on panels addressing trans-specific issues. Why is my voice confined to just one panel? asked Katelyn Burns, one of three transgender women featured on the panel, Not All Pussies Are Pink and Not...

    Maxine Waters (D-CA) has rebranded herself in the Trump Era as a strong public servant standing up to the corrupt, demagogic president. Repeatedly, she has harangued the president during speeches that range from AIDS fundraisers to LGBT Gala award dinners.Today in Michigan, Waters led a raucous chorus at a womens rally, chanting Impeach 45! Impeach 45! But, people would be wise to remember that her career is one of corruption and failure.Rep. Waters has passed just three bills in her 27 years in Congress. That means on average, Waters produces something noteworthy for constituents every 9 years. One of the...
