The inevitable is happening
to the #MeToo movement

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/9/2018 8:24:57 AM

Anger-driven social movements do not moderate themselves, but they all eventually run into obstacles and begin to decline. #MeToo may be entering a new phase as stories like the following proliferate. The #MeToo movement has been very, very good to California Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, providing a national profile for the ambitious solon: In December, when Time magazine announced that “Silence Breakers” who spoke out against sexual harassment were its Persons of the Year, Garcia’s face was prominently included in the art accompanying the cover story.

More Libtard crap. If it was so bad why didn’t women file charges when it happened instead of many years later?

I am not surprised that Garcia had to use her position to get attention. Without her position and power she would need a pork chop tied around her neck to get the hound to pay her some attention.

Schneider schadenfreude surplus

Posted By: magnante- 5/8/2018 9:01:52     Post Reply
President Trump famously warned us during the campaign that we may not be able to handle all the winning. But I am already running into a related non-problem: so much schadenfreude over the disgrace and resignation of New York AG Eric Schneiderman that I am overwhelmed with shameful joy in the richly deserved reckoning for an uber-hypocrite. Best of all, two separate groups are deeply compromised: abortion-worshiping feminists and the get Trump cabal. (snip) Schneiderman joins Andrew McCabe and James Comey in needing to lawyer up for prosecutions that seem inevitable now. The Manhattan district attorney has already opened an

Why the Media Are Mum About
Comedy Central´s 2011 Trump Roast

In March 2011, the cable channel Comedy Central staged a celebrity roast of Donald Trump. Hosted by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, the show featured a crew of B- and C-list entertainers mocking each other and, of course, Trump, the subject of the roast. What stands out seven years later is how the Democratic-media complex (DMC) seems to have erased its past and changed its standards for no greater purpose than to make Trump´s occasionally crude behavior seem aberrant, if not downright un-American. (snip) Nothing Trump has ever said or done, however, measures up to the relentless vulgarity on seemingly hilarious

The winds of the special counsel are blowing hard. A big tempest is brewing, and it´s not clear what is happening. (snip) Too much is known about what the leftist cabal has done. Too much factual information on their ugly, evil intent is out there. Too many of their top soldiers are gone or neutered. Clinton has no power. Obama has no power. Their surrogates have been outed. The media have been outed; a huge number of people in this country have been rightfully convinced the mainstream media is colluding with all this wrongdoing. The "fake news" has been branded

Busted! FBI/DOJ caught using redactions
of House Intell Committee Report
to protect their posteriors
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 5/5/2018 8:02:32     Post Reply
The release of a less-redacted version of the House Intelligence Committee Report on Russian active measures (aka, “collusion”) has exposed abuse of the redaction process to protect the bureaucrats at the FBI and Department of Justice. In theory, redacting of official documents prior to public release is supposed to be solely to protect confidential sources, or protect ongoing prosecutions, or otherwise serve legitimate government interests. Redactions to prevent embarrassment or potentially illegal activities on the part of federal officials is not legitimate. Yet, that is clearly what happened when the House Intelligence Committee report was first redacted by the DOJ

Andrew Carnegie made billions in steel, sold his business, and switched to philanthropy. He built 2,500 libraries, at least. In his 1889 essay The Gospel of Wealth, he said that "the rich have a moral obligation to distribute their money in ways that promote the welfare and happiness of the common man." Where are the people who feel like that today? Here´s the first step they would take. They would ensure that all kids in our public schools learn to read in the first grade. Then those children could go to Carnegie´s libraries and enjoy the books. We have to ask:

It is staggering to witness the Justice Department go off the rails and barrel toward a showdown with our president over innuendo and manufactured misdeeds. From the beginning of the special counsel appointment and despite Jeff Sessions´s recusal, I felt confident that Trump and Sessions had a behind-the-scenes plan to navigate this quagmire. (snip) There´s too much information to cover all the DOJ corruption that is in the public domain at this point. Does none of this compel the attorney general of the United States to take action? Wasn´t his recusal expressly for Russia-Trump campaign collusion before the election? So

The Democrats’ long knives are going to be unsheathed on Hillary Clinton’s back even sooner than I anticipated. Driven mad by the crash and burn of her “inevitable” presidency dream, she continues to come up with excuses that avoid the real reason: her personal repulsiveness. Yesterday, in the latest installment of her “it’s not my fault I lost” speaking tour, she revealed embarrassing truth about her party.

And her remarkable change in body language suggests that she realizes this transformation of her own party is a real electoral

Michelle Wolf: In Her Own Words

My first take on seeing the live broadcast of Michelle Wolf’s comic speech at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner at the Washington Hilton last Saturday was revulsion and disgust. Like many conservatives, I felt like this was the intolerable last straw of an elitist left wing mainstream media gone bonkers. (snip) I noticed that – other than the unedited live broadcast of the dinner – subsequent news reports used clips of what Wolf said that were all edited, censored, or bleeped, making a serious evaluation impossible. I located a transcript online of her presentation, but it was flawed.

James Comey, the smiling weasel

Have you ever wondered how people of the caliber of James Comey ever rose to the lofty heights of the Department of Justice and the FBI? (snip)So how does a self-righteous pr*ck get so far in life? The answer, I am afraid, is based on the iron law of bureaucracy. No matter how noble ostensible goal of any bureaucratic agency – helping the victims of natural disasters, for instance – inevitably the organization ends up serving the interests of the members of the bureaucracy. Self-interest comes first, and those who best protect those who make decisions on career advancement rise to

Randa Jarrar, the Freson State University tenured professor who demonized Barbara Bush shortly after her death and mocked her critics by pointing out that she has tenure and cannot be fired from her six-figure job shaping young minds, ought to become a poster child for the depths to which academia has sunk. Her status is under review according to University officials, no doubt worried about alumni giving declining, so there is a decent possibility that she could become a cause célèbre on the left, should she lose her job.

It´s been drilled into everyone that "past performance is no guarantee of future results." That piece of wisdom is a double-edged sword. Most Trump critics, be they Democrats or NeverTumps, miss the second edge. However bad Trump´s pre-election behavior is perceived to be, it has almost no value in evaluating the obvious success of his presidency. (snip) Trump´s negotiating style is the key to understanding his success. During the campaign, Trump-supporters continued to emphasize his business acumen. Many people found the claim absurd. I was certainly among them, but the group included highly successful investors like Mitt Romney. Trump´s investment

It would have been nice if Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, one of the gods of totalitarian tech, had been sitting next to iconic conservative bloggers Diamond and Silk as they testified on Zuckerberg´s censoring of their Facebook page and heard the opinions the dynamic duo expressed there. But the internet gatekeeper would have had to leave his safe space of corporate and even congressional sycophancy.

Arizona Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain is reportedly making preparations for his own funeral, with requests that former presidents George Walker Bush and Barack Obama attend the ceremony and eulogize him. McCain, 81, was diagnosed last July with primary glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. The tumor was discovered during a routine physical the senator underwent in early July. After complaining of fatigue and double vision, McCain was given a CT scan, which revealed a clot just below his left eyebrow. While some patients can, with aggressive treatment live, as long as 5 to 10 years,

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told an audience in New Zealand Monday that she gave “some thought” to permanently leaving the United States and settling in that country after Donald Trump scored his upset victory over her in 2016. “I want to thank some of you for sending good wishes a very long way during my campaign and the months that followed.

Hillary Clinton has been spotted on multiple occasions lately wearing long jackets paired with colorful scarves that cover her neck and drape down over her back. But Clinton´s style choice, which she has even worn out in 80 degree temperatures, has prompted speculation that she has something to hide... a back brace. Eagle-eyed social media users noticed a strange protrusion coming from Clinton´s back when she was photographed visiting her daughter Chelsea´s apartment in New York last week. The supposed back brace was clearly visible under her blue jacket as she left her daughter´s building and headed back to her

When does a gross indiscretion, aimed at undermining President Trump through private negotiations with a sworn enemy of America, become something bigger? Former Secretary of State John Kerry, deep into his months-long “shadow diplomacy” with Iran, is testing the point. Truth is, the antiquated Logan Act – which bars exactly that sort of extra-legal, unofficial and patently officious and offensive behavior – has never been enforced, although referenced as late as 1991 by the Supreme Court. That does not make Kerry’s behavior acceptable, patriotic or defensible. In fact, at a time when everyone from President Trump to America’s national security

Former Secretary of State John Kerry recently told a confidant of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that he is considering a second run for the presidency in 2020. Kerry ran unsuccessfully against President George W. Bush in 2004. His comments, reported by the Israeli newspaper Ma´ariv, came during a London discussion about the Middle East peace process with Hussein Agha, a Lebanese academic who is close to Abbas. Kerry, 74, said his advanced age wouldn´t be an impediment to mounting another White House bid, and urged Agha to tell Abbas to ´stay strong´ and ´play for time´

Former President Barack Obama had some barely veiled criticism for President Trump at a Monday talk in San Diego, implying that American values “are not being upheld.” “I’ve been trying to be careful about not editorializing too much. When I get worried about our country, or the world, it is not around a particular issue,” Obama said, according to NTK Network. “I worry when our values are not being upheld,” he said. Obama added, “Our democracy, just like any organization, can’t work if, for example, we don’t insist on facts. Like, facts are really useful. We can’t make good decisions
