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

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.

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.

Mitch McConnell is Ready to Play
Hardball to Get Kavanaugh Confirmed
Daily Caller, by Kevin Daley    Original Article

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told senior Republicans that he will schedule Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote on a date just before the November elections if Democrats demand access to the full scope of records the judge produced in the George W. Bush administration. Democrats are leveraging the access dispute to slow Kavanaugh’s nomination, as it is one of the few mechanisms they have to delay progress on the appointment. Politico reports that McConnell believes scheduling a confirmation vote in immediate proximity to the midterm elections will exacerbate political pressure on embattled Democrats from red states to support Kavanaugh. “To

Pearl Harbor. Kristallnacht. Treason. High crimes and misdemeanors. These are some of the hyperventilating left’s overheated and ludicrous characterizations of President Trump’s remarks at his Helsinki press conference with Vladimir Putin. Listening to the Democrats and their wholly owned media subsidiary, you would have thought that Trump had (a) smilingly handed Putin a large red “reset” button or (b) had been caught on a hot mic during a global nuclear security summit murmuring to Putin’s representative that, after the midterm elections, he would have more flexibility in his dealings with Russia or (c) had signed off on a deal to give

For many donors, Help the Vets sounded like a great cause: The group said contributions would benefit disabled veterans by helping pay for medical care, assist with suicide prevention, even fund family retreats. As it turned out, however, Help the Vets was a “sham charity” that primarily benefited its founder and president, Neil G. “Paul” Paulson, who raised $11 million over three years by misleading soft-hearted contributors, according to a complaint filed Wednesday by federal and state authorities. Fed up with charitable scams that exploit public sympathy for veterans, the Federal Trade Commission struck back Thursday by unveiling Operation Donate

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A fellow mom friend recently posted an idyllic picture of her kids online, writing about what a magical summer they’ve had so far. She ended the post by saying “even in dark times like these, my kids are such a bright spot.” What dark times were these, I wondered? In the last week I’ve had a friend bury a brother, another returned foster children he’s had in his home for over a year and a third put their beloved family pet to sleep. So I messaged the friend concerned about the dark times facing her family, offering my prayers for whatever

A Georgia police department is in hot water over the purchase of a Hellcat muscle car. Fox 5 reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has asked the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office to pay back $69,258 that it received from a federal program that distributes seized drug money to law enforcement agencies, which was used to buy the 707 hp Dodge Charger Hellcat in May. "We have not yet responded to that letter and we´re examining all our options," department spokesperson Shannon Volkodav told Fox 5.

At a recent speech in South Africa, former President Barack Obama criticized wealth inequality, saying those who have more money should share their earnings with the less fortunate. “Right now, I’m actually surprised by how much money I got,” Obama said of the more than $20 million he earned between 2005 and 2016. Obama then chided wealthy individuals for excess, saying, “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.” “We’re going to have to worry about economics if we want to get

Putin’s goons must never be
allowed to question US citizens
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/20/2018 4:37:48     Post Reply
President Trump did the right thing by finally rejecting Vladimir Putin’s outrageous proposal to let his intelligence goons question US citizens, including a former ambassador to Moscow. Let’s hope he truly understands how unacceptable the idea is. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders Thursday claimed Putin had made the proposal “in all sincerity.” Nonsense: He made it as payback for special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian intel officers for trying to influence the 2016 presidential election. And because he’s intent on punishing those responsible for the 2012 Magnitsky Act, which can be used to sanction human-rights violators — and which

WASHINGTON — Anonymous evaluations of professors by their students can be caustic or catty. But they are also unfailingly candid, and collectively they paint a revealing picture of a teacher’s strengths and weaknesses. Over the last decade, about 350 law students at Harvard, Yale and Georgetown expressed views on classes offered by Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. With rare exceptions, they praised his mastery of legal materials, intellectual rigor, fair-mindedness and accessibility. “I honestly believe I took a class that was instructed by a future Supreme Court justice,” a Georgetown student wrote in 2007.

Scott Wallace, a liberal millionaire candidate running for Congress in Pennsylvania, has given millions of dollars to so-called population control groups. Such groups have advocated for taxing parents “to the hilt” for having more than two children, calling it “irresponsible breeding,” and said abortion is “a highly effective weapon” to combat overpopulation. Wallace, grandson of a former vice president who’s running as a Democrat in Pennsylvania´s 1st Congressional District against Republican incumbent Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, has used the Wallace Global Fund to give out nearly $7 million to population control groups since 1997. Zero Population Growth (ZPG) was among the

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing ´aid and comfort´ to the enemy. Flake´s choice of words evoked the Constitution´s definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland. ´By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy.

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording. The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohen’s office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The Cambridge, Mass., couple

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential "armed protests" against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles. In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that´s staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior."

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Michael Avenatti says he’s the “street fighter” Democrats need if they’re going to win the White House in 2020. Avenatti, a lawyer who has become a household name — or at least has sought to become one — with his media appearances representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels, says he’s “giving serious thought” to running for president. He says he’s skeptical that the politicians now seen as likely contenders in the 2020 presidential race can beat President Trump.

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest
