Major donor reconsiders support for

A prominent donor to the Democratic Party says she is considering withdrawing support for senators who urged their colleague Al Franken to resign after he was accused of sexual misconduct. The donor, Susie Tompkins Buell, has been one of the Democratic Party’s most generous supporters for decades. In particular, she has been a champion of female politicians, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Maria Cantwell of Washington. (Snip) “In my gut they moved too fast,” she wrote. Franken “was never given his chance to tell his side of the story.” “For me, this is dangerous and

Suddenly the spin is to make disrespecting women OK. Is the Media so enamored with itself that it cannot see wrong is wrong?

Like with all LIE-berals, to her the ends justify the means.

Any Republican even accused of something like this must be crucified!!!!! It doesn´t matter if there is any proof, or if it is all a total pile of lies.

But if a Demon-RAT is caught in video (like Franken) sexually harassing women (and worse), then we have to be patient and ultimately ignore what he did since it is for the greater good of the Lie-beral overthrow of our Constitution!!!!!

That tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about the mindset of the average LIE-beral!!!!! And, yes, you should be very, very afraid!!!!!

Yes, I´m sure holding dems accountable for their actions seems VERY dangerous at the moment. Why, they might be held accountable for corruption in the DOJ, FBI, Intelligence agencies, State Department, IRS, EPA, and numerous other government agencies.

Who KNOWS where it might stop.

Don´t worry Susie. Go find Al. I´m sure he would love to grab you, errr ... GIVE you a hug and make you feel better.

Japan accepted just 20 asylum seekers last year – despite a record 19,628 applications – drawing accusations that the country is unfairly closing its door on people in genuine need. Since 2010, Japan has granted work permits to asylum seekers with valid visas to work while their refugee claims were reviewed, a change the government says has fuelled a dramatic rise in “bogus” applications from people who are simply seeking work.

Albany, N.Y. — New York state would make it illegal for police officers to have sex with people in their custody under a proposal gaining momentum in Albany. The idea picked up the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday, who said he’ll amend his state budget proposal to include language saying that people in police custody cannot legally give consent to engage in sexual activity. Current law bars sex between correctional officers and inmates, but it doesn’t apply to police and people in their custody. Cuomo, a Democrat, called that omission an “egregious loophole” that must be closed.

Retailers have removed at least 31 types of dog food mostly owned by Smucker´s after an investigation triggered by a canine who died of poisoning discovered they contained traces of a euthanasia drug used to put down other animals. Lab tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration showed that many brands of dog food were found to have been contaminated with pentobarbital. Pentobarbital is a drug used to put down animals, including dogs, cats, and horses.

IRS still paying bonuses

The IRS is still paying bonuses to nearly 2,000 bad employees, including more than two dozen who were actual tax-cheats themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a new report this week. The audit suggests the tax agency’s efforts to crack down on bonuses have not fully succeeded, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. IRS screening did stop more than 1,000 employees with tax problems from getting bonuses, but 1,962 employees with discipline problems — and 26 who had been found to have intentionally cheated on their tax returns — were still paid bonuses in 2016 and

New York — The flu vaccine is doing a poor job protecting older Americans and others against the bug that´s causing most illnesses. Preliminary figures released Thursday suggest the vaccine is 36 percent effective overall in preventing flu illness severe enough to send a patient to the doctor´s office. There´s only been one other time in the last decade when the flu vaccine did a worse job. Most illnesses this winter have been caused by a nasty kind of flu called Type A H3N2. The vaccine was only 25 percent effective against that type. This kind of virus tends to cause more suffering

Senate deal grants
amnesty to future illegals

The Senate’s new immigration compromise not only grants legal status to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before, but creates a new future amnesty that would even protect illegal immigrants who managed to sneak into the U.S. over the next four months, experts said. Not only would the bill enshrine Obama-era deportation rules, protecting most of the current 11 million illegal immigrants from fear of removal, but it extends those same protections to any illegal immigrants who can jump the border between now and June 30. The Homeland Security Department said the plan “destroys” their ability to enforce immigration

The bone-chilling cold and icy winds in Pyeongchang have contributed to any number of wipe-outs for Olympic skiers and snowboarders, not to mention a public-relations face plant for the climate-change movement. Its dire warnings about how the Winter Olympics face an existential threat from global warming have been all but buried by the flurry of reports about frigid conditions at the 2018 games in South Korea, which are expected to set an Olympic record for cold temperatures. Climate activists have also been frustrated by a lack of global-warming coverage by NBC Sports, prompting a social-media campaign

President Trump’s legal team is citing a three-pillar argument to convince investigators, and the public, that President Trump shouldn’t sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Mueller wants access to the president as part of an inquiry into suspected obstruction of justice in the firing of the special counsel’s longtime friend, FBI Director James B. Comey, in May. The president’s legal team has resisted but not given a firm no. Here are the arguments against an interview. • The White House has given Mr. Mueller unprecedented access to White House documents and people. • There is no stated crime. •

He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons.

He had been bragging to them about having a personal armory and implying he would use it, justifiably frightening them. Subsequently he posted a photo of that armory, including assault weaponry, on Instagram as well as a photo of a target riddled with bullet holes with the recommendation to try it as "group therapy."
