    Monica Lewinsky announced this week that she is launching a new anti-bullying campaign by changing her Twitter name to the long list of names she has been called over the decades. Lewinsky unveiled #DefyTheName with a new PSA as part of National Bullying Prevention Month, People magazine reported Friday. The campaign calls for people to change their user names on social media for the month of October to the names with which they’ve been bullied.

    Twenty years after recommending to Congress that then-President Clinton be impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, Kenneth Starr has written a book about it. Surely, with the passage of time and many other books exploring the Lewinsky affair and the other Clinton scandals, Starr can be treated with dignity and respect. Back then, he faced ABC's Diane Sawyer calling his Starr report "demented pornography, pornography for Puritans." Twenty years later, nothing has changed. In a Sept. 10 interview on "CBS This Morning," anchor Norah O'Donnell brought up one of his lawyers: "One of the things we've learned the Supreme...

    Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern turned anti-bullying activist, gave an emotional speech in Jerusalem on Monday night before abruptly leaving at the start of an interview. Lewinsky addressed the Channel 2 news conference about her experiences in the wake of the revelations of her affair with then-US president Bill Clinton. Following her speech, Lewinsky sat down for a scheduled talk with news anchor Yonit Levi. Levi asked Lewinsky if she was still expecting a private apology from Clinton after all these years. Lewinsky simply answered: “I’m sorry, I’m not going to be able to do this,” and quickly walked...

    Pro-Trump mother and businesswoman, Chele Farley is running for the United States Senate in hopes of replacing Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who she says has embraced a socialist platform. Farley spoke to the Gateway Pundit to explain why supporting her in this race is so important for New Yorkers and our nation. When asked if she will support President Donald Trump from the Senate, Farley explained that she voted for him and thinks that his treatment by certain parts of the media has been very unfair. Farley is also a hardcore advocate for term-limits, so much so that she has personally...
  • Kirsten Gillibrand Received Over $20,000 From A High School In California

    12/14/2017 7:59:39 AM PST · by gaggs · 30 replies
    Kirsten Gillibrand received over 20,000 thousand dollars from Palo Alto High School. Why is a California high school giving $20,400 to a Junior New York Senator? This really makes no sense. Why is a public school giving taxpayer money to ANY campaign? Is the high school name BS and meant to hide the real donor? Is this a money laundering scheme? Palo Alto High School is in one of the richest neighborhoods in the U.S. It is a pipeline to the University of California system, Stanford, and Ivy League schools. What’s more even the teachers are extraordinarily well-connected. For instance,...

    Etiquette question … is it tacky to give someone a birthday gift paid for by campaign donations, rather than your own vast personal wealth? I ask only because it looks like Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., used money donated to his campaign to buy Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a present from Tiffany for her 50th birthday last year.

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) became the first senator to call for the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to be abolished during an interview on CNN with Chris Cuomo Thursday night. “I believe that it has become a deportation force,” Gillibrand stated. “And I think you should separate out the criminal justice from the immigration issues.” “I think you should reimagine ICE under a new agency with a very different mission, and take those two missions out,” she continued. “So, we believe that we should protect families that need our help, and that is not what ICE is doing today.” I...

    Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) on Monday hesitated to call out Hillary Clinton for ignoring recommendations to fire a top adviser accused of sexual harassment moments before saying "no one is above criticism" when it comes to sexual misconduct as she castigated President Donald Trump and former Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) for alleged misconduct. Gillibrand, whose named has been floated as a potential 2020 presidential candidate, appeared on ABC's "The View" to discuss her efforts "leading the charge to take on sexual misconduct in Washington, D.C." The senator first called on national Republicans to return any campaign donations they...

    Senator Gillibrand, a local hack with the right family ties appointed to fill Hillary Clinton's seat, who has no conceivable qualifications for the job, has done nothing to justify her time in the Senate and would never have been able to keep her seat if New York elections weren't becoming as hopelessly one state as California, is calling on President Trump to resign. If Gillibrand wants to get the resignation train going, she can start with herself.

    Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she didn't know what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand "was trying to say" when she suggested this week former President Bill Clinton should have stepped down over his affair with Monica Lewinsky that tarnished his presidency. "I don't exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say," Clinton told host Rita Cosby on WABC Radio in an exclusive interview Friday while promoting her new book "What Happened." When asked if she could have been more supportive of women who claimed to have been sexually harassed by her husband, Clinton said each...

    Former Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines on Friday called it "strange" that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) waited nearly 20 years to say that former President Bill Clinton should have resigned as a result of the Monica Lewinski scandal. "Her point was strange to me because she probably didn't come to this feeling and thought and position yesterday," Reines on Fox News' "The Story with Martha MacCallum." "Why she wouldn't have in the last 20 years vocalized it is strange to me. Nothing was stopping her." Reines' comments came after Gillibrand told The New York Times in an interview on Thursday...

    Those comments came during a discussion a New York Times reporter was having with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York for an upcoming podcast. Asked point-blank if she thought President Clinton should’ve resigned from office, the Times reported that Gillibrand “took a long pause” and conceded,“Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” Gillibrand went on to characterize today’s culture as somehow less permissable of this behavior then it was twenty years ago when Clinton was in office, hinting that President Trump should face the same fate.  https://www.mrctv.org/videos/abc-ignores-gillibrand-saying-clinton-shouldve-resigned   “Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who holds the seat formerly occupied by Hillary Clinton, said today that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with Monica Lewinsky came to light. That’s mighty enlightened of her. But what took her so long to reach, or articulate, this view? The answer is, it took the fall of Clintons plus a crucial Senate race in which the Republican is being accused of serious sexual misconduct. We know that Gillibrand would never have called out Bill Clinton if he still wielded influence. We know this because she didn’t when he did. To...

    New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a long-time political ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton, said Thursday the former president should have resigned after his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky was disclosed, according to a report. Asked if the 42nd president needed to step down nearly 20 years ago, Gillibrand told the New York Times: “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.”

    The young attorney decided the president deserved to be forced from office for “his pattern of revolting behavior” and the “sheer number of his wrongful acts.” “The president has disgraced his office.… He has lied to his aides. He has lied to the American people,” Brett Kavanaugh wrote in a 1998 memo to his colleagues. “I’m strongly opposed to giving [him] any ‘break’ … unless he either resigns or … issues a public apology.” Kavanaugh, a fast-rising Republican legal star, then 33, went back to work on a 132-page memo to his boss, independent counsel Kenneth Starr, that outlined the...

    PBS’s Judy Woodruff asked former president Bill Clinton Thursday whether he thought it was a “good thing” that norms have changed when it comes to sexual harassment. Woodruff’s example was former Minnesota senator Al Franken being forced to resign his post after accusations that, Woodruff said, were less serious than what happened in the Lewinsky scandal. "Well, in general, I think it's a good thing, yes," Clinton said about norms changing. He then proceeded to defend Franken and question the legitimacy of some of the accusations against him. "I will be honest,” he said, “the Franken case, for me, was...

PBS's Judy Woodruff followed up on widely criticized comments Clinton made Monday and asked the former president how he thought the scandal impacted Lewinsky. "You paid a price. Do you think Ms. Lewinsky paid a higher price, a harder price?" Woodruff asked. "Oh, I don’t know. I think she paid quite a price. But the price that...

    CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert grilled former President Clinton on Tuesday about his recent comments about Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement. Colbert asked Clinton why he appeared surprised by questions about the Lewinsky affair during a recent interview, claiming that the incident was the most famous example of workplace sexual misconduct. "You seemed surprised that that question would come up," he asked on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." "That somehow, this had all been adjudicated in the past and that there was no reason to talk about it again, when it seems that the spirit of the #MeToo...

    Tipper Gore was more enraged about Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky than even Hillary Clinton, according to a new book. “Tipper Gore was furious at Bill Clinton, angrier than Hillary Clinton was,” author Kate Andersen Brower told The Post. Her new book, “First in Line: Presidents, Vice Presidents and the Pursuit of Power,” comes out Tuesday. With Lewinsky being the same age as the Gores’ eldest daughter, Karenna, Tipper “felt personally offended by the scandal,” said ex-Gore aide Jamal Simmons. The White House intern was 22 when the affair with Bill Clinton began. “In Gore’s case there’s no way...
