Former Dem rep fired by Morgan
Stanley after harassment investigation

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Brett Samuels

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2017 1:07:34 PM

Former Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-Tenn.) was fired from his job at Morgan Stanley after an investigation into a harassment complaint from a female co-worker, HuffPost reported Thursday. The woman, who requested to remain anonymous, alleged that Ford forcibly grabbed her one evening in Manhattan several years ago. She also accused Ford of harassment and intimidation, according to HuffPost. A spokeswoman for Morgan Stanley confirmed Ford’s firing, telling the news outlet he was terminated “for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies.” The report comes amid a wave of sexual misconduct allegations in recent weeks against prominent politicians.

Comments:
Another one bites the dust. While it is satsifying to see all these Democrats exposed for the animals that they are, it is a bit disturbing how many there are and it makes me wonder how many are really accurate. This is turning into madness with those who are accused unable to defend themselves. I´m sure not defending Democrats, but with all the witch hunts going on in this country you have to wonder which ones are true and accurate.

Lived and worked in Memphis and the Ford´s were the bargain basement version of the Chicago Daley family. Crooks none the less, but small town crooks. This is no surprise either, power corrupts.

I bet the democrats wish they had never opened this can of worms, just to try derailing Roy Moore´s election. Lots of collateral damage from that boomerang.

This ain´t nothing though, compared to the boomerang from the special council investigation. The follow-on to that will end up snaring a number of democrat heavies... Many already identified and the evidence in hand!

Saw Ford many times on Morning Jomika.
Very smooooth presentation.
Almost gave the impression of being reasonable and avoided the bad attitude built into so many of our melanin gifted brethren. He has a very polite and polished bearing...soft spoken...southern gentleman.

I´m surprised at this charge.

Not knowing much about his actual political povs, I too liked his less abrasive and more seemingly moderate demeanor. I´m surprised at the charge against him, and disappointed to read that more knowledgeable LDotter´s know that he and his family are crooked. Darn!

"Several years ago.........requested to remain anonymous........terminated "for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies".

HUH......??? I´m sorry, women are having entirely too much fun at this time in history. I´m 74 a great grandmother, and don´t like the way this witch hunt is going. These guys and I´m sure most if not all have enjoyed being powerful creeps..........BUT, where does it stop? Right now any woman seems to be able to get away with accusing a man of whatever she wants anonymously if she wants, and it is taken as fact. Most women at one time or another has been in a situation where she was uncomfortable or even mistreated. It happens, it has always happened, but the pendulum is swinging high and wide and I´m not sure society is ready for all the repercussions, if this is allowed to continue without brakes.

Several years ago?! and she refuses to give her name? Nope. I am disbelieving. The time to complain was "several years ago."

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep.

Roger Goodell’s NFL contract is a slap

The decision by the NFL Compensation Committee on Wednesday to give Commissioner Roger Goodell a five-year contract extension that could top out at nearly $40 million a year is pure craziness. NFL owners are watching their brand implode and TV ratings for games plummet under a reckless commissioner – and they fail to see that Goodell is running the wrong game plan. Giving Goodell a huge compensation package like this – 90 percent of it tied to incentives – is like giving Hillary Clinton an award for outstanding email practices and honesty.

The first of four Chicago suspects accused of beating and torturing a disabled teenager and broadcasting the attack on Facebook has pleaded guilty, but a judge let her off without prison time, a report says. Brittany Covington, 19, pleaded guilty to a hate crime in court on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune. The suspect also “pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and intimidation charges. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped additional charges, including kidnapping,” the Tribune said. Despite the guilty plea, Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks released Covington without jail time. Telling Covington, “Do not mess this

Hillary Clinton´s Russia collusion
doesn´t interest the media
Washington Examiner, by Eddie Scarry    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 12/9/2017 11:19:38     Post Reply
If the media are defining “collusion” as President Trump’s team being willing to accept potentially beneficial information from Russia in the 2016 election, all future cable news analysis on the issue should include a disclaimer: Hillary Clinton’s campaign did precisely the same thing and more! There is no real consensus about what any collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia would have entailed (which is helpful for Democrats and self-interest-driven Republicans like Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in maintaining a scandalous fog over the White House) but news reports typically discuss it with ominous references to campaign advisers and aides who had any

Case Closed: FBI says Sessions

The FBI has put to bed a controversy whipped up by liberal critics of Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his contacts with foreign officials including Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 presidential campaign. An FBI email released through the Freedom of Information Act said that Sessions had no obligation to reveal any contacts with foreign officials unless he “developed personal relationships” with them. The bottom line: His two contacts with Kislyak in 2016 did not have to be revealed to the FBI on his SF-86 security clearance application, part of his confirmation process. Sessions has repeatedly denied that he

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday.

Rep. Hakeen Jeffries (D-N.Y.) blasted President Trump’s Friday campaign rally in Pensacola, Fla., in a tweet Saturday, labeling it a “hatefest.” The tweet also appeared to blast Roy Moore, the GOP Senate candidate in Alabama, as "a racially insensitive homophobe." “Is he referring to the HATEFEST on the Alabama border designed to bolster a racially insensitive homophobe?” Jeffires tweeted. (Snip) Trump’s rally came just days before the Alabama special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former seat. While the White House maintained Trump wouldn’t go to Alabama to campaign for Moore, the Pensacola rally took place just miles away

   

 



 
Robert Mueller and his politically biased

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has sabotaged his own investigation of Russian meddling into the 2016 election. He has only himself to blame for ruining what could have been a credible probe. (Snip) Because Mueller improperly stacked the deck of his special counsel staff with biased crusaders, he transformed what was supposed to be an impartial investigation into an illegitimate and seemingly corrupt one. To restore integrity, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should un-recuse himself from the case for the limited purpose of cleaning up Mueller’s mess. There is no law that prevents the attorney general from doing this. Sessions should remove all of

n the past few days, some on Fox News have invoked the KGB and “secret police” in denouncing the FBI, and MSNBC’s Ari Melber noticed a lot of this “noise” today. With more conservative media figures amping up criticism of Robert Mueller, Melber took a note of the “noise” and said it’s “getting louder.” He showed clips of Fox Newsers like Gregg Jarrett and Sean Hannity (taking a shot at the latter’s chart), expressing astonishment at the “secret police” rhetoric.

In early November Judge Roy Moore from Alabama was leading ultra-liberal Doug Jones by 20+ points in Alabama. Then the Washington Post published allegations of Roy Moore courting a young teenager 38 years ago in Alabama. That sent the liberal media on a frenzied attack against Judge Moore. Today Democrats think they have a shot at the Alabama race and several Republicans like Mitch McConnell are supporting Jones. Now this… According to Big League Politics former Jeb Bush spokesperson Tim Miller leaked the anti-Moore stories to the Washington Post. Is anyone surprised?

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.

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.

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

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,

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
