´Ready?´: Democratic senators and staffers shed
tears during Al Franken´s resignation speech

Washington Examiner, by Al Weaver

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/7/2017 4:08:57 PM

Sen. Al Franken took a quick glance up at a jam-packed Senate press gallery as he entered the chamber Thursday, preparing to ask Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan, who was presiding over the chamber, to allow him to make the speech that would end his political career. A senator who has long dodged questions from reporters, he finally had one for them. "Ready?" And with that, Franken, D-Minn., set out on his farewell address to the Senate — a 12-minute speech where he continued to proclaim his innocence against eight women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.

His short speech was self indulgent and self absorbed.

"Some of the charges are inaccurate and I don´t have the same recollections as some others have had."

That´s because you were all jacked up having just copped a feel!

What a dumb son of a gun! Does he really think the public is that stupid?

Good riddance to this worthless sniveling disgrace from the great state of Minnesota. I hope to heaven they elect or name a better example as his replacement.

He didn´t resign and he didn´t apologize for anything (essentially calling his accusers liars). He sort of said he would leave in a few weeks. I suspect that means if Roy Moore wins, Franken will create a hostage situation. "Either Moore goes or I stay". He will claim that Moore´s accusers are more believable (after almost 40 years) than his accusers and he shouldn´t have to leave if a guy that almost raped a teenager can stay. Whatever he said today was not definitive in the least.

"I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate."

He did not resign. He only announced that he WILL BE resigning without specifying when.

Nothing has actually happened, yet.

There are two reasons they are getting Franken and Conyers out... to show that they cleaned house so Roy Moore has to go too. And second, to show that they are the women´s champion and then run Michelle Obama or Kamela what´s her name.... gak!!!

The people of Minnesota, especially Republicans, who allowed this creep to steal a senate seat seven years ago are to blame. Franken was and will always be a comical fraud. He cost the people of this country untold damage including the passage of Dumbocare.

Franken will try to stay on until the Senate Ethics Committee completes its investigation. If they hammer him, he´ll go; if they slap him, he´ll try and stay.

If he goes, the Minn governor will likely appoint a woman to fill his seat.

It´s obvious that the progs are setting the table to go after our POTUS on this issue. There will be big money available to any woman willing to claim Trump touched her 20-30 years ago after she flirted with him because he´s rich. Bonus if she has a signed yearbook or weeps easily.

This is spreading like a California wildfire. It could get uglier.

These people are hostages to stupidity. Franken is a bad Senator because he believes things that are bad for America. He is a dishonest politician who leveraged his way into power on the back of a dead man by stuffing ballot boxes. For all of these reasons, Franken should not be a U.S. Senator.

But that´s not why the Democrat machine is getting rid of him. He´s being pilloried to appease a feminist mob because lunatics run the Democrat Party and politically unprincipled cowards lead it. They need the lunatic vote to stay in power.

Question: If the governor of Minnesota was a Republican right now, would Franken be resigning? To ask is to answer: There is zero chance that the Democrats would forfeit a Senate seat to a Republican-appointed successor over a principle.

I have two things to say, and they are in response to quotes from Franken:

1. "Let me be clear -- I may be resigning my seat, but I am not giving up my voice." Voice, used in this context, was made up by Oprah, and sounds very effeminate.

2. "But Minnesotans deserve a senator who can focus with all her energy on addressing the challenges they face every day." Well, there you go. He´s apparently referring to himself as "her", so I guess it makes #1 moot.

I´m so confused.

Just exactly what did he do that was so bad? Pose for a photo in front of a sleeping co-entertainer, pretending to reach for her breasts? Rehearsed USO skits with women, kissed them on the lips?
Have the wretched hags in the senate grown so powerful that they can wave their brooms and cast out the jerks, for any reason?? The first to call for Franken´s resignation was Kirsten Gillibrand, who was appointed to her senate seat by the biggest horndog in politics, ex Governor Paterson of NY. Kirsten never said a word about Paterson´s behavior.
We are entering a danger zone.

At the conclusion of U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley´s interview with CNN´s Jake Tapper yesterday, Tapper wished Haley a "merry Christmas and happy new year." Haley responded by wishing Tapper "a merry Christmas." But in the Trump era, nothing is ever as it appears to be. Tapper is Jewish (first I´ve heard of that), and, according to lefties on the internet, she should have wished him a "happy Hanukkah."Crooks and Liars: At the end of an interview with Haley about President Donald Trump´s decision to accept Jerusalem as the Israel´s capital, Tapper concluded by acknowledging Haley´s Christian faith.

Lois Lerner: ‘Exceedingly low’ public

Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that there’s “no legitimate” reason why the public should see her testimony about her role in tea party targeting, pleading with a judge to keep her deposition permanently sealed. Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment. They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out

President Trump has understandable reasons for distrusting the U.S. intelligence community, according to a former CIA official who led the agency under former President Barack Obama. Mike Morell, who served as acting director of the CIA from 2012-2013, took some of the blame for Trump’s feud with the CIA. Morell lamented that he failed to consider how Trump would consider his endorsement for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, especially when paired with other officials’ criticisms and a series of unflattering leaks. “And [Trump] could rightfully have said, ‘Huh, what’s going on with these intelligence guys?’ Right?” Morell told Politico’s Susan

Titled “Why These Alabama Voters Are Sticking By Roy Moore,” Luntz’s Vice News focus group aired on Vice News Tonight on Dec. 8 on HBO. “Are you all Christians here?” Luntz opens the seven-and-a-half-minute long segment. “Yes,” all of the focus group participants, who joined Luntz in a Birmingham area restaurant, replied. “Is Roy Moore a good Christian?” he followed up. “Yes,” one woman replied. “Absolutely,” another said. “Absolutely?”

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for
