A Wall St. Executive’s Downfall Seemed
Sudden. It Was Years in the Making.

New York Times, by Kate Kelly and Andrew Ross Sorkin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/13/2018 5:13:53 AM

Late last year, Morgan Stanley got a tip: Reporters were asking about allegations that a high-profile executive, the former congressman Harold E. Ford Jr., had harassed a female journalist. Morgan Stanley conducted a quick investigation, interviewing the accuser and Mr. Ford, who denied the allegations. According to Morgan Stanley officials briefed on the internal process, the Wall Street bank concluded that it was a he-said, she-said situation and didn’t find proof of harassment. Then Morgan Stanley fired Mr. Ford. Why? It depends on whom you ask. The Morgan Stanley officials briefed on the process say that amid a national outcry over sexual harassment, the

Comments:
Anyone else remember when Harold Ford was supposed to be the Democrats´ bright future leading to the White House?

"Ridiculous" must be today´s news topic.

There´s a national outcry over murder. Hmmm, you look like you killed somebody.

He was probably window dressing who didn´t bring in business and turned out to be more trouble than he was worth.

I remember being really surprised when Ford´s firing was made public. Now we know the rest of the story. Morgan Stanley was trying to get rid of him for business reasons, and did it by using a pretty shaky harassment claim which did in fact destroy his reputation. Which isn´t fair.

I always liked Ford. He is an affable character who showed the ability to work across the aisle.
But he drifted left, going back to the democratic plantation.

I won´t vouch for Ford´s work habits, political pedigree or anything else. The allegation of sexual misconduct against him reflects the madness sweeping society. A one-time misunderstanding, belied by this "reporter"´s fawning email to him, now results in the destruction of a man´s reputation and the humiliation of his children. I would call it McCarthyism, but that would be a slander of Joe McCarthy, who actually had evidence on his targets.

My fellow right-wingers who express schadenfreude when a liberal celebrity gets brought down by this stuff are fooling themselves. This is a destructive anti-male jihad. It will consume them too. Watch out

The Ford family is to politics in Memphis TN what the Daley family is/was in Chicago. Harold seemed more normal, but it´s hard to tell if it was real or an act.

I don´t see where his behavior was especially egregious. As others have said, his performance probably lagged behind his salary requirements, so they used this old complaint to oust him.

Elizabeth Warren unloads another 100
CFPB questions on Mick Mulvaney
Washington Examiner [DC], by Joseph Lawler    Original Article

Mick Mulvaney hasn’t been answering Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s questions, but the Massachusetts Democrat has 100 more for him, anyway. Warren´s office released a long list of questions for the record that she submitted for Mulvaney, the acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, after a hearing this month. The questions add to the 105 that Mulvaney previously brushed off while telling Warren that it was essentially her fault that he didn’t have to answer her, based on her role in designing the structure of the agency. Mulvaney and Warren have clashed repeatedly as he has sought to overhaul the agency she

In spite of all the blame, Hillary knows

Imagine, if you would, that a Republican presidential candidate, say Mitt Romney or John McCain, had spent the next 18 months after his loss moaning and groaning and blaming everything from the FBI to Russian bots to xenophobia for the loss — and the mainstream media covered the pity party. That’s Hillary Clinton in a nutshell. The election was a year and a half ago, and Hillary is still on TV and selling out venues to hawk her pathetic book, “What Happened,” in which she blames everything and everybody but herself for her humiliating loss. If you’re not keeping track at home,

Rand Paul’s Dangerous Exhibitionism
Weekly Standard, by Editors    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/25/2018 4:56:23 AM     Post Reply
Senator Rand Paul likes to take unpopular stands. The Kentucky Republican relishes making life difficult for bipartisan majorities attempting to pass compromise legislation, and he delights in pointing out the imperfections of his colleagues’ proposals. Paul is beloved by libertarians, privacy advocates, and anti-war activists. But while conservatives may agree or disagree with Paul’s stated aim on a particular issue—we often share his views on fiscal questions, though we loathe his tactics and attitudinizing—his self-righteous exhibitionism isn’t just silly and off-putting. It’s dangerous. In typical fashion, Paul threatened to vote against Mike Pompeo as secretary of state on the grounds

The Counterintelligence Probe’s Phantom Origin
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article

The guilty note that Susan Rice wrote to herself after Trump’s inauguration takes on more and more meaning as the shocking details of Obamagate come into focus. The Obama administration’s decision to spy on the Trump campaign was not, in her words, “by the book” but scandalously irregular. It turns out, according to Congressman Devin Nunes, that not even a semblance of “official intelligence” justified the spying. It was the probe from nowhere to nowhere, undertaken simply to satisfy the partisan hunches of John Brennan and other Trump haters in the Obama administration. “The counterintelligence investigation uses the tools of our

WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Al Gore labeled Fox News a “propaganda machine,” calling for America to “restore the integrity of the conversation of democracy.” “Fox News is an example of, essentially, a propaganda operation. Now, I don’t want to tar all of them. You have people like Shep Smith and some of the others and – who was it who did that powerful interview with Scott Pruitt? Ed Henry,” Gore said during a discussion today sponsored by Axios. “There are a number of really fine journalists at Fox News who are doing an outstanding job, but the primetime shows

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

When a political figure is accused of wrongdoing, a conversation begins among journalists, commentators, and public officials. Are the charges true? Can the accusers prove it? That´s the way it normally works. But now, in the case of the Trump dossier – the allegations compiled by a former British spy hired by the Clinton campaign to gather dirt on presidential candidate Donald Trump – the generally accepted standard of justice has been turned on its head. Now, the question is: Can the accused prove the charges false? Increasingly, the president´s critics argue that the dossier is legitimate because it has

US Winter Olympians who competed in PyeongChang are heading to the White House this week, but some of the most notable names are skipping the prestigious event. The 2018 Winter Olympics were, at times, used by athletes to vocalize their dissatisfaction with the Trump administration. Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy have all spoke out against the administration. They are among a large swath of about 60 Olympians who will not attend the White House reception this year. Chloe Kim, Mirai Nagasu, Mikaela Shiffrin, and Shaun White are also not visiting the White House

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day. [Snip] Among allegedly conservative Republicans, Trump approval has climbed into the mid-80 percent range. All this despite continued stormy allegations by a

Chelsea Clinton took inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge for how to manage the birth of her first child, a new book claims. She and her aides ´studied´ how the British royal family had handled the birth of Prince George in 2013 in order to prepare for her own first baby, who was born a year later. Bill and Hillary Clinton´s only daughter Chelsea, as well as her staff, noted how press was handled and how the Duchess of Cambridge handled herself, and used it as a template for themselves, the book claims. The claim suggests that Chelsea saw herself

First Lady Melania Trump stole the show when she stepped out of the White House alongside President Trump in a stark white hat and matching belted skirt suit to greet French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron at the White House on Tuesday. Mrs. Trump wore the off-the-runway, asymmetric Michael Kors Collection double crepe jacket with a matching Kors skirt and wide brim hat by Hervé Pierre, Mrs. Trump’s personal style advisor. The wide brim hat is a first for Mrs. Trump as she normally wears her hair in her signature middle part and layered waves. The Michael Kors Collection

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is set to announce a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one,” The Washington Post reports. The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American. Sanders´s office has yet to release the details of the plan´s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.
