It Was 20 Years Ago Today

Twenty years ago today Matt Drudge released a blockbuster story about a White House intern and her sexual affair with then President Bill Clinton. The story was investigated and filed by Michael Isikoff at Newsweek but that publication quashed the story allegedly because it could not confirm some of what Monica Lewinsky was heard saying on recordings of phone conversations and because some of her words led them to question her credibility.

Drudge had no such worries when he released the story to his then 85,000 subscribers. In no time flat that story was the talk of the town and Drudge’s page received so many visitors that it could not be accessed by some who wanted to read the story. It is quite possible that story jump started what is now the most formidable news aggregating website.

Newsweek decided not to run with the story and the rest of the MSM ignored it until it got too big to dismiss. All must have decided that the then 23 year old intern was not as credible and a man known to be a serial philanderer. His initial run for the presidency was clouded with sexual exploits (sexploits?) including a long term affair with Gennifer Flowers. Clinton denied the affair and his wife set up a war room to handle so called bimbo eruptions. As the world would later find out, not only was Lewinsky telling the truth but so was Flowers.

Clinton lied about everything until he was cornered with a DNA stained dress. He was impeached for committing perjury but found not guilty by a Congress we now know has a slush fund of taxpayer dollars to quash sexual allegations levied against its members.

Clinton was never held accountable for the sexual misconduct and the rapes reported by other credible victims. To this day he is a free man and cherished by many liberal women who quickly react when others are accused of the same things.

It looks like Lewinsky, Flowers and others were all #metoo before it was the in thing.

Twenty years! Can you believe that? They grow up so fast. It seems like it was just yesterday Monica was crawling around the Oval Office putting things in her mouth.

The government has needed an enema for a long time.

Worst Bill Evah?

Nancy Pelosi is screaming about the tax reform bill making its way through the Congressional sausage machine and she is not happy. When she is able to put words together and express a semi cogent thought she manages to rant about the tax bill being the worst ever. Yes, San Fran Nan is upset with the bill because, get this, it will add to the deficit and it will get rid of the Obamacare mandate. According to the dim bulb known as Pelosi, this will cause Armageddon. It will result is a lot of deaths.

Best I can tell from the news is that all human life on the planet will be extinguished when the tax bill becomes a law.

Good thing Democrats are not dramatic…

So Nancy Pelosi is worried about the debt. First of all there is no concrete evidence that the tax bill will cause the debt to rise. There are some reports but these are by the same organizations who told us Obamacare would save us money and was debt neutral. Obamacare is raising the debt and 2.2 TRILLION dollars looks like the net added to our ever growing debt. The reality is if taxes are cut more people will get to keep more of their money to spend and that will be great for the economy which will in turn get revenue flowing to Treasury.

The problem is not in tax cuts but in spending. Congress and the rest of the establishment government absolutely refuse to cut spending. If more revenue comes in they will spend even more. This has been demonstrated time and again and most recently during the Obama reign of terror. Record amounts of money were paid into the Treasury in many months and our debt still went up. Each time there is more money the government can’t resist spending it and more. This is one major reason our debt increases. Couple this with the fact that a lot of money is spent on programs that the government has no Constitutional power to be involved in and one can see why we continue to owe more money.

The national debt doubled under Obama. We went from just about 10 TRILLION dollars when Bush left office to just about 20 TRILLION when Obama left office. Nancy Pelosi and every other worthless liberal Democrat screaming about the debt were in office when this happened. They happily raised the debt ceiling, happily spent more and happily looked away as out debt continued to rise. Their concern now is nothing more than political theater. If Hillary Clinton had won (perish the thought) they Democrats would be pushing for more and more spending and more and more debt. They are absolute hypocrites.

Which puts me on to the next item. Brain dead Pelosi claims this is the worst bill in the history of Congress. I guess she is even including all the racist Democrat Jim Crow bills that became law and harmed the black population of our nation. Democrats were responsible and Democrat Pelosi thinks allowing YOU to keep more of YOUR money is worse than bills designed to keep blacks oppressed.

You folks who pay no taxes don’t get to scream about who benefits because you have been benefiting all along as the rest of us paid and continue to pay your way.

Obamacare is one of the worst legislative pieces ever produced. It enslaved people, caused them harm, caused them increases in what they spend and forced them to buy a product whether they wanted it or not. It did this by forcing some tax payers to pay for others (in addition to their own) and it forced people to buy insurance or be fined (or taxed if you are John Roberts). It added to the national debt, resulted in people losing coverage and doctors they were promised they could keep and it did little more than make most people slaves to the government.

Nancy, the tax bill allows those of us who earn money and pay taxes to keep more of what we earn and pay less to the government. THIS IS NOT A BAD THING. It is certainly not the worst bill ever.

Unless of course your life revolves around waiting for your taxpayer funded handouts…

Oh My, Already Gay? Blame It On The Russians

It appears that liberals were ok with sexual harassment, rape and other inappropriate behavior from other liberals until they were not. But in some cases they still tolerate it.

In the case of any Republican accused liberals have no tolerance. The Republican is immediately guilty even when the claims turn out to be false. In fact, this is a tactic of the left. When someone is running for office they trot out some woman to claim that [insert Republican candidate’s name here] grabbed, touched, harassed, or otherwise acted inappropriately, Gloria Allred shows up out of nowhere (and usually digs up a few more accusers along the way) to represent this downtrodden and forgotten soul who was abused by said Republican, there are calls for that person to exit the race, assuming he does, then the woman making the claims slithers back from whence she came and the issue is not brought up again. Herman Cain had that happen to him. The left tried it with Donald Trump but he said it was not true and he was going to sue the accuser. She and her lawyer probably realized Trump has more money than her DNC backers so that claim went nowhere real fast.

I looked to see how Allred spells her name and there is a news story that she is holding a press conference with another person making accusations about Roy Moore. It is like they only know the same tired routine.

In any event, for years and years liberals tolerated the sexual misdeeds of other liberals. Liberal women still tolerate what Bill Clinton did. Women offered to give him the same thing Monica did as long as he kept abortion legal. Liberal women routinely ignore the fact that he raped a number of women. The very same liberal women who are screaming about Roy Moore and allegations about things that allegedly happened 40 years ago completely ignored what Bill Clinton did and they knew about it not long after it happened. Those women were not deemed credible so Bill got, and continues to get, a break.

Look at Anthony Weiner. It took a while for him to be put in jail and I bet that was more because he hurt Hillary’s campaign than the fact he was sending pictures of his junk to under aged women (remember, liberals are OK with that and often applaud sexual deviants).

Harvey Weinstein got away with harassment for decades as did Kevin Spacey. These liberals got away with it because people in Hollywood were more interested in making sure they had good careers than in making sure they reported bad behavior. As a result of their inaction more people were abused by these cretins.

There are some liberals who speak out when things happen but there are not many. There are far more folks still defending Polanski than are speaking out about abuses. Now it could be that many of these liberals have skeletons in their closets as well and don’t want to rush to judgment in fear that the next fingers pointed will be at them.

It is strange to me that all of the sudden sexual misbehavior is popping up all over the place in Hollywood. It seems like every day some new allegation is made against some liberal entertainment big shot. I don’t find it strange that there is sexual misbehavior, I find it strange people are now reporting it.

I usually try to give the benefit of the doubt in these things. I believe in innocent until proven guilty so many years ago I was skeptical about an intern and a president until she showed up with a blue dress. I wondered if Weinstein’s engagements were consensual as he claimed but after claiming that he went into sex rehab (whatever the hell that is) so he basically admitted there was a problem. To me that is like saying you don’t have a drug problem but you are going to drug rehab anyway.

Then there is Spacey. This guy claims he does not remember, if he did do it he was drunk and oh yeah, he identifies as gay. That is supposed to be his, I’m gay so it’s OK now leave me alone, defense.

Among the people who have things to say about these abuses is the one and only ambassador to gaydom, the spokesperson for all that is homosexual, Mr. Sulu himself, George Takei, Oh my…

George has been outspoken about a number of things and he is not happy with anything that stands in the way of the gay agenda. He has made some very foolish statements in the past year (Donald Trump does that to people) but for the most part he is trying to remain relevant.

Looks like George is now in a bit of hot water of his own. He has been accused of sexually assaulting a model (a male one) many years ago. George cannot pull a Spacey and come out of the closet because that ship sashayed long ago. So he had to resort to what liberals have been using to explain Hillary’s loss.

The Russians did it.

Takei is saying that Russian bots are to blame for the story getting traction. Mr. Chekov, was that you?

I have seen no proof that Takei actually did anything. So far there is an accusation by a model. Lacking some kind of proof this will always be he said, he said.

I am sure many liberals will look at it that way though some of George’s fans are finding it tough to stick by him.

Maybe Roy Moore will get a fair shake and if there is no proof it can be chalked up to he said, she said.

Who am I kidding? I started this by saying liberals have tolerance (though now less so) for their other liberals misbehaving sexually but come prepared to hang when it is a Republican.

It will be fun watching George go through this and listen to his responses (if anything, he is entertaining). Maybe if he is real nice Mr. Trump will explain to him how to handle a Russian problem.

Phasers on stun George, it is going to be a bumpy ride.

Not Me Too

There is a campaign now (a hashtag campaign since they work so well) to have women who have suffered sexual harassment or abuse to use the hashtag #metoo to indicate they were victims. The issue with this campaign is that it includes people who were the targets of something said (disgusting but not as horrible as what physical abuse entails) and the tag gives this impression that everyone around has been physically abused. It would be helpful if there was a response that said #notme.

I am in no way minimizing the abuse that monsters like Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton have done (done rather than said you could do like the current occupant of the White House) because these abuses, whether they be on women, men or children (and that is the next big thing that will break out of Hollywood) are horrible and should not be tolerated.

Actress Alyssa Milano started this campaign to have women speak up if they have been victims and that is an issue because it relegates these folks to victim status. It is horrible that it happened but being a victim is not empowering. Having women disclose to everyone under the sun that they were victims also takes away a privacy they can never get back.

I think it is just as or maybe more important to be a survivor rather than a victim. Hashtags, if that is the way to go, should include things like #neveragain, or #notme, or #ifoughtback, or any number of other slogans that indicate that the subject is not a victim.

Speaking of being victims and empowerment how about these vocal advocates push for less stringent concealed carry laws? Imagine the outcome had one of Weinstein’s RAPE victims had a firearm. There might not have been so many victims. I will also point out that many victims remained silent about the abuse and emboldened Weinstein to continue his predatory ways. That is not to lay blame upon them but to point out that saying it happened WHEN IT DID is vital to ensure there are no other victims.

It is not enough to say you were a victim (and maybe counterproductive). You MUST indicate that you are a survivor and that you will never be a victim or never be one again. Powerful people knew of the abuse, engaged in the abuse and facilitated the abuse. Some of the abused went along in order to further careers and others stood up to the monster but remained silent.

It is not lost on me that the people who hashtag metoo are the ones who ignored the women who claimed Bill Clinton raped or otherwise sexually harassed them. I also think it is likely that if Hillary Clinton (who likens Harvey to Trump rather than her own husband) had won the presidency we would not be hearing about Harvey Weinstein, #fogeddaboudit.

The victims, of course, are not to blame for the behavior of people like those mentioned in this piece. But it is difficult to scream about the sexualization of women while dressing in clothing that, well, sexualizes you. Dressing that way is NOT an invitation to being abused or raped but it does take away any claim that Hollywood sexualizes you or that you don’t want to be thought of that way. Talking about your sex life, what you like or don’t sexually, who you have or would sleep with and your fantasies coupled with clothing that exposes more than it covers sexualizes you. That does not mean you should be attacked in any way shape or form but it removes the argument that someone else sexualized you or is at fault for people thinking that way. Your sexuality empowers you and is an important part of the human experience but it is not a reason to be attacked and certainly not an excuse to be a victim.

If you want to be empowered then get away from the victim mentality and fight back. But fight back when it happens, not when it is convenient or trending and make sure you hold all abusers to the same standard.

If the reaction to Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby (at the time of their actions) had been as intense as the reaction to what Trump said in a recording (not what he did but what he said you COULD do) then it is likely these men would not have abused for so many years. The same outrage Hillary [and the I’m with her liberal crowd] had for Trump when the tape was released should have been the outrage she had when her husband was diddling an intern nearly the same age as his daughter. Her response to the allegations of rape by her husband should have been as strong (or stronger) than her response to Trump. She and the movement lose credibility when the response is selective outrage.

So hang tough and be empowered. Do not be victims. Yes, you can tell us #metoo but let us know #iamstronger and #neveragain. Let us know so it is not just a #politicalstunt.

And if you have not been a victim let us know #notme. Your strength might help others.
