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.

TDS Leaves WAPO Mindlessly Attacking President

…and his family

The Washington (com)Post is a far left wing newspaper that is in bed with the liberal establishment politicians and it serves as part of the media wing of the Democrat Party. The WAPO is more like a stenographer for the left.

For years the WAPO ignored the indiscretions and illegal actions of Democrat Presidents, explained them away or provided cover. The same paper never missed a beat when attacking Republicans. Nixon was a target of the WAPO and they got him.

It is not that Nixon did not deserve to go down (it depends on how you look at it) but is more about how the WAPO ignores the same or worse from Democrats like say, Bill Clinton who actually did go down, so to speak. Obama and Clinton have basically received a pass (and continue to receive it) from the WAPO while that publication continues to hammer away at Republicans.

The target this time is Donald Trump. The WAPO is all over him for anything he does and the paper even uses hacks to attack Trump’s daughter Ivanka. The hat trick is that the WAPO attacked Trump and included a Nixon reference while suspiciously ignoring Clinton. It appears in an article by Lawrence Tribe who is supposed to be a Constitutional Law Professor at Harvard Law School. Considering that is what they said about Obama I have no hope this guy is competent.

In any event, here is what Tribe had to say in his article detailing why Trump must be impeached:

No American president has ever been removed for such abuses, although Andrew Johnson was impeached and came within a single vote of being convicted by the Senate and removed, and Richard Nixon resigned to avoid that fate. Washington Post

Notice anything missing? Tribe did not mention that Slick Willy Clinton, the serial rapist and sexual predator, was also impeached. Now later in the piece Tribe mentions it but in the context that Nixon did really bad things and Clinton just had an embarrassing tryst and even those pesky Articles of Impeachment demonstrate that. Actually the articles are quite similar and it is important to note Clinton was not impeached for his sexcapade, he was impeached for lying under oath and obstructing justice.

Tribe suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome so much so that he wants Trump impeached for things he might do or could do or has allegedly done. Tribe is also full bore on the debunked collusion with the Russians probe. You see, there is no evidence, as stated by a number of officials including outgoing Obama appointees, that Trump colluded with the Russians. The professor is doing the same thing the democrat controlled media and the stenographers at the WAPO are doing. He is conflating the story that Russia tried to influence the election (no doubt about it as they have done for decades) and the unfounded allegation that Trump colluded with Russia to win in order to confuse the public and have them think that because Russia tried to influence it must have been working with Trump when that is not the case. Perception is reality for these people and if they can alter reality to harm a Republican president they will.

Trump fired James Comey, big deal. Democrats wanted him fired months ago and those bashing Trump for firing him openly admit that if Hillary had won and fired him they would be OK with it. These mindless morons, Tribe included, have become the mindless drones of the left and the hypocritical thought police who want punishment for what others were alleged to have done or because they might do something bad in the future.

Keep in mind the folks who want Trump impeached are the same who defended Bill Clinton, who ignored the lies of Hillary and Obama regarding Benghazi and who think Hillary did nothing wrong when she sent classified information through a private server. These people ignored scandal after scandal involving the Clintons and Obama but are now manufacturing scandals to take down Trump.

I just wonder how long it will be before Trump returns fire and takes out a whole lot of people.

Tribe is not the only deranged liberal to attack a Trump. Some deranged liberal chick named Christine Emba has written a hit piece about Ivanka Trump. The piece discusses how much hope people had for Ivanka and how, despite her father, was a hard working successful business woman who, though born of privilege, made her way in the world. Emba is disillusioned and now claims Ivanka is not hard working, does very little, hawks her products, is outclassed and outmatched in dealings with other women in other countries and wrote a terrible book that was shredded by other columnists. To Emba, Ivanka came in with so much hope but demonstrated she had no real business acumen and was only able to get by because she was born into money and used daddy’s name to make her way.

I would like for someone to find me the article Emba wrote describing Chelsea Clinton is similar fashion. The description Emba paints of Ivanka would be more fitting for Chelsea Clinton. She was not necessarily born into money but the family had a ton of it before she became an adult and that money helped her immensely. Clinton has had a number of jobs she was not qualified for just because her mommy and daddy are well connected. She was paid handsomely for doing little actual work and is not much of a business woman.

Ivanka is a successful person with her own business and her own direction. She is unfairly attacked because of the TDS caused by her father and the liberal hatred for him. Chelsea Clinton is loved by the left and any attack on her is met with a swift response. She continues to be honored on magazine covers and with awards that she did nothing to deserve. So please, show me where this hack Emba wrote something similar to the Ivanka hit piece about Chelsea.

Tribe and Emba suffer from TDS and they write for a publication that has a huge case of it. These people are working in concert to take down President Trump no matter whether they have an actual case or not. They are manufacturing the stories to impede him and they are abetted by the Obama holdovers left in government for the sole purpose of attacking Trump.

This will all come to a head and it will not be pretty. I just have two things to tell people like Tribe and Emba. If you and your libtard followers keep causing problems you will not like the response and there will be no crying from you or those who suffer the consequences.

Political violence has been increasingly common as left-wing organizations have whipped up mobs against Republicans and supporters of the president. The Daily Caller

And two, one day a Democrat will retake the White House and Democrats will control other branches of government. I don’t want to hear a word from either of you if violence starts and you are treated the same way you are treating Trump and the Americans who support him. Keep in mind, we have the people who actually know how to prosecute and win wars. So keep it up. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

Nancy Pelosi’s Selective Outrage

It is no secret that politicians in general and Democrats in particular are hypocrites. They rail against something the other party is doing until they themselves do it and then it is OK. They are quick to condemn a person who has a misstep and just as quick to accept the same kind of misstep by someone in their own party. As an example we can take Schmuck Schumer who cried when he discussed how mean and hateful President Trump’s Executive Order curtailing immigration from 7 nations that have little to no functioning government or are state sponsors of terror. This is the same Schumer who only a few years ago claimed we might have to temporarily halt immigration. No tears then…

It is how politics works and it is why Congress has such a low approval rating.

Nancy Pelosi is no different. She talks out of both sides of her mouth and can contradict herself in the same paragraph. She is a moron who has no moral or ethical compass (how does her husband get so rich off government contracts) and she does not care that her idiocy is in full view for all to see.

This past weekend a Democrat Representative made a disgusting joke about Kellyanne Conway saying how “familiar she looked on her knees” a reference to the photo of her sitting on her feet on a couch in the Oval Office. Asked about this Nancy Pelosi said she was not aware of what he said but was more worried about a vile guy like Trump being in office. What she stated was; “But I do, every day, marvel at the fact that somebody who said the gross and crude things that President Trump said — he wouldn’t even be allowed in a frat house, and he’s in the White House.”

She was referring to the recording of Trump that everyone is familiar with. I have a few things to say about the recording of Trump. The first is that it was a private conversation, or at least he thought it was. He stated that in private to another person. I spent enough time in sports and in the Army to know what guys say when it is guy talk (women are just as bad). I would not want some of the things I said then to be the thing people judge me by today. The other important thing is Trump never stated he actually grabbed women by a body part, only that he could.

None of this makes what he said any less vile but it needs to be put in perspective. It seems to me that Pelosi should have said what Donald Trump said was in a private conversation and we should not pay attention to it and respect his privacy.

What? Am I some kind of nut? (possibly)

Well, Nancy Pelosi did not find Bill Clinton receiving oral sex from an intern (who was around 21 years of age) in the Oval Office to be disgusting and that he should never be in the White House. Pelosi and many other Democrats were of the mind that it was a private matter between Clinton and his wife. Even after Billy BJ Clinton was caught in the lie and forced to admit he did in fact have sex with that woman and then lied about it Pelosi and the Democrats supported him. None of them thought he should be out of office or never let in to begin with. In fact, Pelosi (who voted NO on all counts) and nearly every other Democrat in the House voted NOT to impeach Clinton. It is important to note Clinton was impeached for perjury and misuse of power, not for having sex. These liberals still voted NO so they have little credibility.

No, they supported the sexual predator and Hillary Clinton made it her mission to destroy any woman who claimed Bill acted inappropriately. One would think Pelosi would have been as outraged by Clinton ACTUALLY having an adulterous affair as she was at Trump saying what you COULD do to women because of fame.

Pelosi is like the rest of the liberal twits. She does not care about the country, only her party. She protects disgusting vulgar people all the time (Clinton and Cedric Richmond, the guy who made the Conway Joke) and she ignores unacceptable behavior from people in her party. She is a hypocrite who uses her position to enrich her family while enslaving the American people.

President Trump might not be a person Pelosi likes but I think she is going to find out he is not going to back down.

She might wish she had kept her mouth shut when this is all said and done.

Quite honestly, Pelosi’s selective outrage is laughable.

Use the Stick

There is an old adage about a carrot and a stick indicating that one can be enticed or forced to do something. In the case of politics it would be wise for Donald Trump to use the stick.

Mr. Trump won the national election by winning the most electoral votes. I don’t want to discuss popular votes or any other non Constitutional issue. We use electoral votes, they are the best way for us to do things and they are not going anywhere barring an Amendment to the US Constitution in which case we will no longer be a republic,

During the campaign Mr. Trump indicated that if he won he would pursue criminal charges against Ms. Clinton for her illegal activities. After the election he softened that stance by refusing to say if he would prosecute her.

I understand how it works and it would be unwise for Trump to say he would prosecute her since that is not his job. It would be up to his DOJ, his Attorney General, to decide. Trump would need to stay out of it and let the DOJ do its job.

We now have this demand for a recount in three states. It is clear Trump won those states and it is also clear that the person asking for the recount, Jill Stein, could not possibly win no matter what a recount showed. The only person who could possibly benefit would be Hillary Clinton and her actually winning enough changed votes to matter is nearly impossible.

This is all being financed by George Soros in an effort to make Mr. Trump seem illegitimate. The goal is to have a hand recount take so long that there would not be enough EVs certified to give Trump 270 thus denying him the presidency. But Clinton would not have the 270 either so the reality is either the person with the most out of those available (the recounting states would not have theirs in in time) would win or the House and Senate would decide and Trump would still win.

However, this would tarnish him and the feeling is it would weaken him in the eyes of the public. Soros is unhappy that he could not buy this election and he is working to disrupt it in any manner he can (like paying for riots and recounts).

The Clinton campaign is now on board with the recounts. They are interested in assisting in the Soros project. Clinton knows she will not win even with the recount but she will help in the attempt to weaken Trump.

So Mr. Trump should make it clear that he expects his DOJ to go investigate and prosecute anyone who engaged in illegal activities including any co-conspirators. He should make it clear that anyone who did anything wrong will be prosecuted and sent to prison. He should make sure that all the lackeys know that they will be targets as well.

Mr. Trump does not appear to be a wallflower. He demonstrated that he can take a punch and return one quite effectively. He did not wither under the unrelenting attacks.

Now is not the time for Trump to go easy on opponents particularly those who are working to undermine him.

Mr. Trump needs to put the carrots away and wield a very big stick.

From Watergate To Water Under The Bridge

I have not posted in a month. In late September my father died and 12 days later my brother died as well. It has been a tough time for our family and I ask you to pray for us

The Washington Post went after Richard Nixon and the cover up of the Watergate break in. Reporters Woodward and Bernstein were relentless and they finally got the goods. Their pursuit of the truth led to the resignation of Richard Nixon.

While there is evidence to indicate Nixon was not the one doing the bad things the reality is the blame fell on him and he ended up resigning. This never would have happened if The Post had not investigated. They, if you are to believe them, looked to expose government corruption.

If Nixon had not been forced to resign under threat of impeachment it is hard to imagine The WaPo would have ignored all of it and endorsed him for office (he was in his second term and could not run again but if he could it is hard to imagine The WaPo would ignore it and endorse him).

The WaPo though is no longer interested in government corruption. Truth is The WaPo was never interested in it when it involved a Democrat. Can you recall any in depth investigation into Bill Clinton’s sexcapades?

Hillary is corrupt. She has a long history of lying, doing illegal things, lying some more and then getting away with her misdeeds. There is no doubt about this and one only need look as far as her server and email issue to see it. She set up the server to avoid having her emails archived per the LAW. She did it for one reason, to skirt the law. Then when she got caught she deleted over 30 thousand emails that had been subpoenaed. That was also a violation of the law.

Hillary supporters will tell you that she was cleared of any wrong doing but that too is a lie. She was not prosecuted for her wrong doing. The FBI director laid out a case of point by point issues where Hillary Clinton broke the law. He also showed where she had lied about classified information and it has been shown that she lied to Congress. Amazingly, the FBI director decided not to push for charges claiming no reasonable prosecutor would indict such a case.

Maybe in his world that is true. It also helped that the Attorney General met with Hillary’s hubby and that these folks are all liberals. The fix was in and the reasonable prosecutor claim was the nothing more than the No True Scotsman fallacy. Plenty of prosecutors would have taken the case.

In any event, The WaPo has ignored all of the evidence of corruption and endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Hillary made Nixon look like a piker and the very same newspaper that relentlessly pursued Nixon over government corruption is ignoring the mountains of evidence showing the corruption of Clinton and endorsing her.

They toppled Nixon.

They want to elect Clinton.

And this folks, is why most people do not take them seriously and why newspapers are going the way of the Dodo.
