Republicans ‘Empowered’ Bill Clinton Sexual Misconduct by Getting Clarence Thomas on Supreme Court
freebeacon ^ | November 20, 2017 | Conor Beck

Posted on 11/20/2017 7:37:18 AM PST by MarvinStinson

ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd said on Sunday that the efforts of congressional Republicans to confirm Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court amid sexual harassment allegations levied against him "empowered" former President Bill Clinton's alleged sexual misconduct.

Dowd, a former Republicans strategist who now identifies as a "proud independent," made the remarks on ABC's "This Week," Newsbusters reported.

"Some things are not about the tribe we're in," Dowd said of sexual misconduct allegations in general during a conversation about Clinton, who some liberals and journalists have criticized in recent weeks amid the ongoing national discussion about sexual harassment.

Dowd cited the confirmation of Thomas to the high court as evidence that Republicans helped "empower" Clinton's sexual behavior in the White House.

"We saw this in '91, the Republicans gave up their values in order to get Justice Thomas on the court," Dowd said. "They basically called Anita Hill a nut and a liar in order to get Justice Thomas on the court."

Anita Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment in 1991, when the Senate was considering then-President George H.W. Bush's nomination of Thomas to the Supreme Court.

"They empowered Bill Clinton," Dowd added, referring to congressional Republicans. "They decided the ends justified the means. They decided that a tainted person was better to get what they wanted."

Conservative journalists quickly ripped Dowd for his comments.

Another DemocRat twisting like a leaf in the wind, trying to defend the part of the KKK, Jim Crow and Segregation and sexual predators.

Anita Hill was a phony, fake fraud agent of the DemocRat left who tried and failed to slime a great American.

So Bill Clinton legacy is if you can I can?
The only thing is Clarence Thomas was innocent.
Bill Clinton is guilty.

Clarence Thomas was Borked.

He never did anything to Anita except perhaps indulge in some coarse jesting about a coke can. If even THAT was true, which probably isn’t, but a huge exaggeration of what really happened.

This is the Merriam Webster official definition of the verb “To Bork”:

Definition of Bork
Borked or borked; Borking or borking; Borks or borks
US politics, slang
:to attack or defeat (a nominee or candidate for public office) unfairly through an organized campaign of harsh public criticism or vilification

In 1987, conservative judge Robert Bork endured such virulent criticism … that to this day, a nominee sidelined by activists is said to have been “borked.” —Claire Suddath, Time, 18 May 2009

Thus, with Bush determined to name an anti-abortion conservative, any nominee may end up Borked. —Rowland Evans and Robert Novak, Washington Post, 1 July 1991

The Left has again grown tired of lying on behalf of the Clintons.

They didn’t defend these things in 2008 when she was in the primary.

They’d much rather see the Clintons exit the stage because of decades old and aired sex scandals than to have the primary collusion with the DNC & msm investigated or the collusion with Russian compromising their own Russian conspiracy narrative.

[I think WJC was Bo Diddling long before 1991]

This is a pathetic attempt to “rehabilitate and inoculate” the image of one of the most corrupt Democrats to inhabit the oval office.

Anita Hill was a tool of NPR’s Nina Totenberg, who thought she owned the US Supreme Court.

Totenberg successfully got Judge Douglas Ginsberg to withdraw after reagan nominated him, by publicizing that he had used marijuana years earlier, and presented Judge Bork’s record of movies rented from a Virginia video store.

The dems tried to destroy Clarence Thomas the same way they are trying to destroy Roy Moore.

Anita Hill’s big ‘complaint’ was that Clarence Thomas said “there’s a pubic hair on my coke can” in response to finding a hair.

I am old enough to have been alive at the time where it was fashionably funny to refer to ‘pubic hairs’ as being funny, for about 6 month time period. I don’t remember who started the trend, but it was similar to “all your base are belong to us”. Suddenly everyone was joking about pubic hairs. It was also right after threatening to grab someone by the “short and curly’s” was considered funny, for a few months.

So... The democrats have ALWAYS been hypocritical slime balls.

Twisted logic from twisted people. Evil. They went after Thomas with everything they had. Then a short time later they defended BC with “feminists” wishing they were Monica. Disgusting double standards and we all know it.

If a Supreme court judge can “empower” a man to become a pervert, what did a perverted President empower?

1. Eileen Wellstone (1969)
Allegation: Sexual assault

An article published on a site called Capitol Hill Blue in 1999 asserted that “Eileen Wellstone, 19-year-old English woman, said Clinton sexually assaulted her after she met him at a pub near the Oxford where the future President was a student in 1969. A retired State Department employee, who asked not to be identified, confirmed that he spoke with the family of the girl and filed a report with his superiors. Clinton admitted having sex with the girl, but claimed it was consensual. The victim’s family declined to pursue the case.”

While these allegations have never been proven and no woman has come forward to claim the story as her own, no sources have been able to reliably go so far as to claim the story is false, and Snopes only notes it as “unproven.”

2. Anonymous female student at Yale University (1972)
Allegation: Sexual assault

The same article on Capitol Hill Blue further alleges that “a 22-year-old woman told campus police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton, a law student at the college. No charges were filed, but retired campus policemen contacted by Capitol Hill Blue confirmed the incident. The woman, tracked down by Capitol Hill Blue last week, confirmed the incident, but declined to discuss it further and would not give permission to use her name.”

3. Anonymous female student at the University of Arkansas (1974)
Allegation: Sexual assault

Again from Capitol Hill Blue: “A female student at the University of Arkansas complained that then-law school instructor Bill Clinton tried to prevent her from leaving his office during a conference. She said he groped her and forced his hand inside her blouse. She complained to her faculty advisor who confronted Clinton, but Clinton claimed the student ‘’came on’’ to him. The student left the school shortly after the incident. Reached at her home in Texas, the former student confirmed the incident, but declined to go on the record with her account. Several former students at the University have confirmed the incident in confidential interviews and said there were other reports of Clinton attempting to force himself on female students.”

4. Anonymous female lawyer (1977)
Allegation: Sexual assault

According to Roger Morris in his book Partners in Power, “A young woman lawyer in Little Rock claimed that she was accosted by Clinton while he was attorney general and that when she recoiled he forced himself on her, biting and bruising her. Deeply affected by the assault, the woman decided to keep it all quiet for the sake of her own hard-won career and that of her husband. When the husband later saw Clinton at the 1980 Democratic Convention, he delivered a warning. ‘If you ever approach her,’ he told the governor, ‘I’ll kill you.’ Not even seeing fit to deny the incident, Bill Clinton sheepishly apologized and duly promised never to bother her again.”

5. Juanita Broaddrick (1978)
Allegation: Rape

Reports state that Broaddrick “claimed that Bill raped her when she was a volunteer on his campaign for governor while she was at a nursing student conference in Little Rock. She claimed that he forced himself on her while she screamed “please stop,” and he bit her lip. Norma Rodgers, a friend who was sharing a hotel room with Broaddrick during the conference, confirmed her claims that she had been sexually assaulted. Broaddrick did not come forward with the claims for two decades, claiming she was intimidated and ashamed.”

6. Carolyn Moffet (1979)
Allegation: Sexual assault

Moffet has stated for the record that “she met Gov. Clinton at a political fundraiser and was invited to his hotel room. ‘When I went in, he was sitting on a couch, wearing only an undershirt. He pointed at his penis and told me to suck it. I told him I didn’t even do that for my boyfriend and he got mad, grabbed my head and shoved it into his lap. I pulled away from him and ran out of the room.’”

7. Elizabeth Ward (1983)
Allegation: Unclear

Former Miss America Ward initially accused Clinton of forcible rape, but recanted in 1998 with an apology to Hillary for what she said was a consensual relationship.

8. Sally Perdue (1983)
Allegation: Unclear

The former Miss Arkansas Perdue has told the press that she while her sexual relationship with Clinton was consensual, “in 1992 she was visited by a Democratic Party staffer [who made it clear to her that they] ‘knew that I went jogging by myself and he couldn’t guarantee what would happen to my pretty little legs.’”

9. Paula Jones (1991)
Allegation: Sexual harassment

Paula Corbin Jones, then an Arkansas state worker filed a sexual harassment suit against Clinton, in which she included the following details under penalty of perjury:

“He came over by the wingback chair close to where I was at. Then it’s like he wasn’t even paying attention to what I was saying to him. Then he goes, ‘Oh, I love the way your hair flows down your back. And I was watching you,’ and stuff like that. Downstairs. And then he did it again. Then he started — he pulled me over to him while he was leaning up against the wingback chair and he took his hands and was running them up my culottes. And they were long. They were down to my knees. They were long, dressy culottes. And he had his hand up, going up to my middle pelvic area, and he was kissing me on the neck, you know, and trying to kiss me on the lips and I wouldn’t let him. And then I backed back. I said, ‘Stop it. You know, I’m not this kind of girl.’ I mean. And it still — and then I ran right over to where the couch was. I thought what am I going to do? I was trying to collect my thoughts. I did not know what to do. I was trying to collect my thoughts. I did not know what to do. After the second time — after the first time, I had rebuffed him. And then when I got over there and I kind of sat right there by the end of the couch on the — seemed like on the armchair part. And the next thing you know it, I turn around because he was kind of back over here, and he come over there, pulled his pants down, sat down and asked me to perform oral sex… He asked me would I kiss it. He goes — you know, I can see the look on his face right now. He asked me, ‘Would you kiss it for me?’ I mean, it was disgusting.”

10. Sandra Allen James (1991)
Allegation: Sexual assault

Back to Capitol Hill Blue, political fundraiser James alleged that Clinton “pinned [her] against a wall and stuck his hands up her dress. She screamed so loud that the Arkansas State Police knocked on the hotel door and asked if everything was okay. When she told her Democratic fundraising boss about the incident, he told her to ‘keep your mouth shut.’”

11. Christy Zercher (1992)
Allegation: Sexual assault

In Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson’s book, Dereliction of Duty, he states that Zercher, then a female stewardess on Air Force One, “complained that Clinton ‘sexually molested” and ‘cornered” her on [a] flight. Per Patterson, the woman only “wanted an apology.’”

12. Kathleen Willey (1993)
Allegation: Sexual assault

Willey claims that when she was working as a volunteer in the White House social office, Clinton “fondled her breast and placed her hand on his clothed, erect penis in the Oval Office while she was asking him for a White House job.”

An article titled “The Trashing Of Clinton’s Women” appeared in The Village Voice in 1999 closed with this:

“The president’s acolytes — such as Alan Dershowitz — continually bray, ‘Sex lies! It’s all sex lies!’ They insist that these thrown-away women are making all this up, including the threats and intimidation. But is every one of these women lying?”

Well, that is an excellent question. Indeed.

Monica smartly kept the blue dress for DNA matching...

Did Anita keep her evidence for DNA matching? For those that don't recall, it was a pube on a coke can (really, Eeeeuuuww).

It was probably her own hair, from her own head, from leaning over her own can of coke.

But, I digress from your valid point of....did she keep said evidence?
