´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.

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

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.

As Monday’s throwdown in the White House press room made clear, relations between the President and the press corps are as bad as they have ever been during the Trump administration. Most journalists seem to put the blame on the administration’s criticisms of the press, with CNN’s Chris Cilizza saying Press Secretary Sarah Sanders’ condemnations were “disheartening” and made him “angry.” A couple of weeks ago, disgraced ex-CBS anchor Dan Rather called the President’s attacks on the news media “disappointing.” “If you look over the arc of history,” Rather lectured MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle in late November, “presidents who have been

Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E.

He singled out Brett Talley, an Alabama district court nominee, and Jeff Mateer, a Texas district court nominee. “I’ve advised the White House they ought to reconsider,” Mr. Grassley told CNN. “I would advise the White House not to proceed.” Taylor Foy, a spokesperson for Mr. Grassley, told The Washington Times the senator has had concern about some of the statements the nominees have made, and he’s raised those

From America’s Catholic bishops to prominent Christian pastor Jim Wallis, congressional Republicans’ push for an overhaul of the tax code has been called nothing less than ungodly. The debate about tax rates and income numbers has taken on pointedly religious overtones, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, citing Pope Francis and St. Augustine in attacking the bill and saying it would signify Armageddon. Mr. Wallis led a protest against the tax plan at the Hart Senate Office Building, reading Bible verses before he was escorted away by Capitol Police. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops released a lengthy

Thousands of Angelenos whose movements, clothing and even relationships were tightly restricted under gang injunctions were released from those court orders this year, marking a dramatic reduction in the use of a crime fighting tool once hailed as an innovative answer to the city´s violent street gangs.The purge of names comes amid growing debate about whether the injunctions still make sense in an era of declining crime and gang activity.

Recognizing the problems inherent in the hysteria surrounding the #MeToo campaign, which the media and politicians are heralding as a pivotal moment in our culture, should not require a difficult intellectual exercise. It was once conventional wisdom gleaned from history. But given that modern media narratives serve more to reshape history than to appropriately understand and learn from it, perhaps a brief history discussion is in order. All you have to do is remember the first famous #MeToo campaign to take place in the Americas. Salem Village, 1692.Young girls, caught up in the frenzied hysteria of rampant devilry and witchcraft

On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work.

Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies.
