  • A mistress is now a friend if you use the AP stylebook

    The Berkeley Independent ^ | May 5, 2021 | Julie Smith
    Dear Reader: The Associated Press Stylebook, aka the Bible of journalism, has decreed that the word “mistress” shall no longer be used by journalists because “it implies the woman is solely responsible for the affair.” Instead — and much to the relief of unfaithful men everywhere — we are to use “friend,” “companion,” or — if we dare — “lover.” How many divorce actions, filed for the cause of adultery, will use those terms? “Mrs. Jones found out Mr. Jones was keeping Stankyho, a long-term friend, in a New York apartment for 10 years.” Nope, the legalese will say “long-term...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - With one week until the election, polling shows North Carolina’s closely watched Senate race tightening. In early October, the RealClearPolitics average of polling in the race showed Democrat Cal Cunningham leading incumbent Sen. Thom Tillis (R) by five to six percentage points. That’s dropped to 1.8 points on average in the final days of the campaign. “There has been an erosion in Cunningham’s numbers,” said Dr. Andrew Taylor, political analyst at N.C. State University. “It’s hard to attribute it to much other than the scandal surrounding Cunningham.” Control of the U.S. Senate could hinge on which...
  • Charles Jones: By military standards, Cal Cunningham's conduct is inexcusable

    Greensboro ^ | 10/18/20 | Gerry Broome
    **SNIP** Given my experience, I find Cunningham’s conduct offensive in four dimensions. One is legal - he violated Article 133 of the UCMJ by sending sexual text messages to a woman who is not his wife. If he had sex with the woman, he possibly violated Article 134’s prohibition against adultery. Two, his misconduct set a poor example for juniors. Officers are held to a higher standard than enlisted members and are expected to lead enlisted and officer subordinates by example. Officership is so important the UCMJ has one article, Article 133, that applies only to officers: conduct unbecoming an...

    North Carolina Senate candidate Cal Cunningham’s (D) sex scandal, that originally broke late Friday night, is reportedly expansive to multiple women outside of his marriage. Cunningham admitted to sending a series of sexual messages to Arlene Guzman Todd, a California-based public relations strategist, planning to meet up and “kiss a lot” during a campaign stop. Following Cunningham’s weekend scandal, that has gained national attention, the National File reports that the Senate hopeful allegedly has a second mistress. The report shows a Facebook comment from a woman named Erin Brinkman, who claims that a close friend also engaged in a multi-year...

    CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATIC SEN. Kamala Harris is widely seen as a frontrunner for a spot on the ticket with presumptive nominee Joe Biden, with vetting well underway. Presidential vetting operations have entire teams of investigators, but for the public, when the pick is announced, the most common source for information about the person chosen is Wikipedia. And there, a war has broken out over how to talk about Harris’s career. At least one highly dedicated Wikipedia user has been scrubbing controversial aspects of Harris’s “tough-on-crime” record from her Wikipedia page, her decision not to prosecute Steve Mnuchin for mortgage fraud-related crimes,...

    We now say not to use the archaic and sexist term "mistress" for a woman in a long-term sexual relationship with, and financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion or lover on first reference. Provide details later.

    While California is the nation’s most populous and richest state – and has been for a half-century – it hasn’t wielded the level of national political power one might expect from that status. New York, still the nation’s financial center, and Texas, California’s chief cultural and economic rival, have been much more successful in projecting themselves nationally. That’s been especially true in presidential politics. New Yorker Donald Trump sits in the White House, having defeated New Yorker Hillary Clinton three years ago. The Bush family from Texas won the presidency three times in the past three decades. But California hasn’t...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris said she supports having a third gender option on federal ID forms as she continues to campaign heavily on social justice issues. The California Democrat was asked about the issue during an event at Keene State College in New Hampshire on Tuesday. “Sure,” she replied, according to multiple media reports.
  • Washington Post Touts 'Impressive' and 'Sharp' Kamala Harris as Democrat Front-Runner(PUKE)

    Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake ranked the 2020 Democratic presidential nominees on Saturday, and it became clear that the Post is looking for an ultraliberal nominee, and somehow cannot see how that leaves a lot of room for voters to sniff extremism and vote to re-elect the president. Blake handicaps Kamala Harris as the front-runner: Sen. Kamala D. Harris (Calif.): Nobody’s launch has been as impressive as Harris’s, save for Sanders’s fundraising haul. The California senator seems comfortable in her own skin, on-message and sharp, and it has made her a somewhat surprising early favorite in betting markets. The...

    en. Kamala D. Harris of California joined the 2020 presidential contest on Monday, thrusting a daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India into the Democratic race two years after she arrived in the Senate. Harris, a 54-year-old former prosecutor raised in a state that has been the crucible of the Trump resistance, expanded a growing field of candidates fighting for the nomination of a party that is increasingly nonwhite and fueled by women alienated by the president. She made the announcement during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and in a video that her campaign posted online.

    Obama in a dress is really off to a great start, spending a lot of money on planning her presidential campaign, while strongly hinting that anyone who isn't on board is a racist. Sen. Kamala Harris accused critics of “identity politics” of weaponizing the term to diminish issues of race, gender and sexual orientation, pressing Democrats on Friday to address those issues head on. “I have a problem, guys, with that phrase, ‘identity politics,’” Harris told the progressive gathering Netroots Nation, wading into a messaging debate roiling Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. “Because let’s be clear, when people say...

    Sen. Kamala Harris said Monday that firing special counsel Robert Mueller is still a “red line” for senators on both sides of the political aisle. “Based on the conversations I’ve had, private conversations I’ve had with colleagues on both sides of the aisle, I do believe that this would be a red line. It has to be,” Ms. Harris, California Democrat, said on MSNBC. She said the biggest problem with Rep. Devin Nunes’ memo is that the publication showed a systemwide breakdown and disregard for institutions and process.

    A married hedge-funder wooed his beauty-pageant mistress with the promise of an ostrich farm in Uganda — only to gift her with an STD, a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit says. Former Miss Germany International Aline Marie Massel, 31, revealed the alleged seamy details of her two-year illicit relationship with Autonomy Capital CEO Robert Charles Gibbins in new court documents. The beauty queen-turned-Tesla model met Gibbins while dining at Le Bilboquet in Manhattan in June 2014, her suit says. Gibbins, who is in his 40s, told Massel he was unmarried and said he wanted to have four children with her, the...

    Sen. Kamala Harris of California was introduced before a crowd in Atlanta, Georgia Sunday by a speaker who smeared Attorney General Jeff Sessions, implying he is a part of the KKK. Harris, was introduced to a black church by Eugene Duffy, described by AP News as a “personal friend of Harris.” Duffy reportedly introduced her by lauding her questioning of “that white supremacist Jeff Sessions,” saying he “pulled [Sessions’] sheet off.” Harris also used the speech to talk about what she saw as a more united America than some think. The senator said, “I believe it is time we replace...

    Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., evidently would have let Ray rot in prison. If she was president, Harris wouldn't hand down pardons or grant clemency. That's because Harris is either the stupidest or the cruelest senator in the country. "Joe Arpaio was convicted because he committed a crime," Harris tweeted in reference to the notorious ex-Arizona sheriff. "He should not be pardoned."

    Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D.) said California Sen. Kamala Harris (D.) will be "knocking on doors in Iowa," indicating Saturday he expects she will run for president. Villaraigosa, who is running for Governor of California in 2018, was asked by MSNBC host Hugh Hewitt about Harris, a newly elected senator considered a rising star in the Democratic Party. Hewitt predicted she would be the nominee for the Democrats in 2020. "Has she got a stake in this governor's race?" Hewitt asked. "Well, not yet," Villaraigosa said. "I hope she will support my candidacy, but as you say, she...
