E. Jean Carroll, a longtime women’s advice columnist, has accused President Trump of sexually assaulting her more than two decades ago in the dressing room of a department store. Carroll, who was 52 years old at the time of the alleged assault, makes this allegation in a book she has just published. I have no trouble believing that Trump has improperly and forcefully touched women in the past. For one thing, he said he has (to Billy Bush). For another, more than a dozen women have accused him of this. Maybe they are all lying, but coupled with his admission, I think some of them are probably telling the truth.

Trying to sell a book is she? The timing alone makes this charge suspicious. Anyway, where is the proof? Where are the witnesses?

Good one, #3. Thick, turgid, purple prose is right. Ms. Carroll (I coulda been a contendah, dahling) is imagining herself first lady. Also, the author got it 170 degrees wrong. Trump admitted nothing of the kind. He never said he did anything. He said being rich, these New York broads would allow you do anything to them. Not the same.

"I have no trouble believing that Trump has improperly and forcefully touched women in the past." Really? Did President Trump say he improperly and forcefully touched women? Me thinks you're lying, Mr. Paul Pot. You can't even criticize Carroll without being yourself a lying hypocrite.

Didn’t get past the fourth sentence where Paul throws in the old lie. Trump never said to Billy Bush that he grabbed women’s p-words. He said that if one was wealthy and famous, they would let you. Not remotely “sexual assault”.

This "guilty until proven innocent" thing may be the new normal. That former FBI broad, beach friend of Blasey Ford, removed all the social media and criminal history stuff (evidence) to enhance the accusations against Kavanaugh. Mueller couldn't find evidence of collusion/obstruction, but refused to rule it out. This kooky trollop concocts a scenario which is free of any back-up and expects to be believed. Against the President. If we're voting, I'm in for returning to innocent until proven guilty.

I find it offensive to discuss "rape" because someone might have been touched sexually. Rape, while a proper definition can include touching, is not generally not thought of that way. It is thought of as forced sexual intercourse. There is a lot of justified emotion summoned up with rape. A touch or a grope is not of the same nature and is commonly part of dating behavior. This is the idiocy that feminists peddle the almost all women are "raped" because they might have been touched without specifically inviting it. I'm not going to say it's OK to touch someone when they don't want to be, just that it is fairly common and far from forced sexual intercourse. Further, Trump has not admitted to doing even this and there has been no proof that he has. We need to be careful when using emotionally charged words. One clarity that has come out of the #MeToo movement is that we know that women can lie about this. The lie is almost as destructive as an actual rape.

This isn't news. This isn't even opinion. Mirengoff is just whispering in the ears of all the Trump haters telling them what they want to hear. It makes them all tingley inside. He gets paid for it too. This is nothing more than a case of journalistic prostitution. Speaking of prostitutes. Will Congress call on E. Jean Carroll to testify? She has certainly given all the prostitutes running for the Democratic Presidential nomination something to talk about.

Yes, #12, there is a photo of "the two of them," actually four of them, ex-wife Ivana being one of the four, Carroll's ex-husband (I think his name was John Johnson or something like that) being in the group, with Trump's back turned, so that while it is probably he, it could also be anybody. Carroll is smiling broadly, and is probably around 40 years old in the picture. (She's pushing 76 now, born in 1943).

So there are photos? What are they doing in the photos. Were they taken at celebrity events or on a surveillance camera somewhere. There are photos and then there are photos. We saw exactly one photo of Donald Trump standing with Stormy Daniels, who was a paid hostess at a celebrity golf tournament in Las Vegas. He was a participant in the tournament. Do you know how many similar photos are taken at celebrity golf tournaments? Zillions. They tell us absolutely nothing except it was pretty trashy of the tournament organizer to use a porn star as a hostess. That’s all ….

Just like the evil, lying hatchet job attempted on Kavanaugh, another vague, ancient, unprovable, undisprovable, claim by some random broad - who cannot even ever prove that she was EVER in the same room with Trump in the last 50 years. Lies, pure and simple. Zero facts, zero proof - just laugh at them and say "Really? Another liar?" Without even the barest hint of proof this is just a fantasy.

Ain't it kinda funny that any kind of a passing reference to wrong-doing by any Republican --- but especially Trump --- no matter how minor or long ago gets beaten like a rented mule by the media. But real, first-hand testimony verified by witnesses against any Dem is quickly swept away. Whether it's Biden, Menendez, Booker, Clinton, any Kennedy, etc. Actually ... it ain't funny. It stinks!

She was married to this well-known guy: John Johnson (born June 20, 1938) is an American television news anchorman/senior correspondent and documentary filmmaker. He had been a fixture in New York City television news for many years. Johnson joined ABC News in 1968, ultimately becoming the first African American documentary producer, director and writer at a broadcast network. He won distinction for his documentaries Welfare Game and Strangers in Their Own Land: The Puerto Ricans. He was one of the first black filmmakers in the prestigious Directors Guild of America. Johnson then became a network correspondent and covered such stories as the Attica prison uprising. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Johnson_(reporter)

Excuse the additional Reply, but with just a little research one finds that this woman has spent her life trying to be the sexiest, prettiest, most outrageous woman ever. She is the star of her own stories, even if she has to fancifully recreate herself in a new image. This article about her living in the woods and shooting her bow and arrow (2015) is just one example. No wonder no one believes her. Ms. Carroll has been divorced twice, but she has no regrets about her past relationships. She says she’s simply not meant for marriage. “You’re on this earth to have as many chaps as you want,” Ms. Carroll told me. She is, mostly out of curiosity, on Tinder, even though her new game, Damn Love, is a send-up of the app, and Tawkify, her matchmaking service, is positioned as an answer to the impersonal aspects of online dating. “There’s nobody in my vicinity, because I’m the oldest woman on Tinder,” she said. “But that’s great.” Right now she is feeling and looking her age….and not gracefully. Graceful has obviously never been her thing. If this photo was taken in 2015, only four years ago, she has really aged rather badly. https://observer.com/2015/09/a-walk-in-the-woods-with-e-jean-carroll/

She talks about the 20+ men, most of them famous, who have sexually assaulted and abused her. She also talks about how absolutely boy crazy and sex hungry she has been her whole life, implying that she has bedded hundreds of men. She claims that since the Trump incident, which even in her telling seems minor compared to everything else, she has never had sex again. Not adding up. Is there a name for a psychological disorder where a woman fantasizes about the kind of sex life Carroll claims to have lived and convinces herself that she has?

Well since Stormy Daniels by going public with Democrat operatives, closed out the covert direct blackmail option to suck a lot of money out of Donald Trump by shakedown artists making claims of having some sort of past sex with Trump, either consensually or otherwise. So such shakedown artists who pop up must take a more indirect approach to making money from old and unprovable claims of having sex with Trump sometime in the distant past, like writing and hawking a fictional book.

Mirengoff repeats the slander that Trump said that he "inappropriately and forcefully touched women". Totally untrue, and Mirengoff, a lawyer, must know that it is untrue. Trump did choose a colorful way to make the observation that most women seem to be more agreeable to advances by celebrities than they are regular guys. Pretty obvious to an honest person.

‘That’s Hell’: Democrats’ Debate Prep Gets Real 10 replies

Often in the early evening over the last few weeks, Joe Biden’s team has told reporters that the front-runner doesn’t have a public campaign schedule for the next day, but that he instead “will meet with advisers.” Biden has lots of meetings to attend to, but increasingly this has been code for prep sessions as the former vice-president and his aides think through how to counter a wide array of inevitable attacks in what will likely be just six and a half to nine minutes of talking time on the debate stage in Miami on Thursday.

Medicare-for-all. Medicare for all who want it. Health care as a form of freedom. As they campaign, most of the 23 Democratic candidates for president are trumpeting bold ideas to achieve the party’s long-held dream of ushering in health coverage for every American. The problem is that many voters are not focused on such lofty goals. They want something simpler — to pay less for their own health care. Voters have plenty to sort out, with nearly two dozen Democrats running, each offering a raft of proposals on many issues. But in public opinion surveys and interviews, people rank health care as their top concern. And with insurance deductibles,

It’s an article of faith among Democrats that the President’s base consists primarily of white working class voters without college degrees, and that they must be won back in order to beat Trump in 2020. This is why Elizabeth Warren inflicted that cringe-making, “I’m gonna get me a beer,” video on a long-suffering electorate. It is why Joe Biden, who reputedly enjoys a special rapport with blue collar voters, is the frontrunner for his party’s presidential nomination despite his penchant for gaffes and plagiarism. Thus, during this week’s Democratic debates, the candidates will devote considerable effort to courting the “deplorables.” This will, however, be an exercise in futility because everything

Since the rise of the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979, Iran has been in a state of ideological, religious cold war against the United States and its allies. Desiring to become the dominant force in the Mideast, Iran has worked to export its particular brand of Islamist revolution beyond its present borders. At the same time, like the Soviet Union with its specific version of Marxist-Leninism, Iran’s leaders have sought to expand their country’s zone of influence and control beyond its current national boundaries, to encompass the entire region — looking at the outside world in Manichean terms: divided between Iran’s Twelver Shiite brand

YouTube, Facebook, and Amazon have recently come under withering criticism from journalists and lawmakers for their role in amplifying unfounded and occasionally dangerous conspiracy theories, including the false but persistent belief that vaccines cause autism. The uproar caused Facebook to pledge to make it harder to find vaccine conspiracies on its platform, and Amazon has removed misleading documentaries from its video streaming service. But as false beliefs continue to fuel an unprecedented outbreak of measles, it's not just social media platforms that bear responsibility for keeping the conspiracy alive. HuffPost, the left-leaning internet news site owned by Verizon, currently positions itself squarely against vaccine conspiracy theories.

There was a guy who came and balanced plates. There would be a stick, put a plate up, get it going, get another and then he would run back and forth just trying to keep them all up. Balancing plates is part of the tone of this administration and of this president.”

Young people are growing less tolerant of LGBTQ individuals, a jarring turn for a generation traditionally considered embracing and open, a survey released Monday shows. The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline, according to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63% in 2016. Driving the dilution of acceptance are young women whose overall comfort levels plunged from 64% in 2017 to 52% in 2018, says the survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of LGBTQ advocacy group GLAAD.

Rep. Ilhan Omar said she doesn’t understand why Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling immigrant detention facilities “concentration camps” has been so controversial, seeing that people are “being concentrated” there. “There are camps and people are being concentrated,” Mr. Omar told The Rebel Media on Friday. “This is very simple. I don’t even know why this is a controversial thing for her to say. “We have to really, truthfully speak about what’s taking place,” the Minnesota Democrat said. “And this is why it is really important for us to abolish [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and make sure that we have an agency

I thought it was satire, something cooked up by his political enemies.You couldn't put out a less attractive video than the one Gavin Newsom did for illegal immigrants on Twitter, advising them himself on how to obstruct ICE from any deportation maneuvers. And sure enough, he wasn't hacked, it really was blue-checked him.(Tweet/Video) Leave aside the fact that he's the governor of a U.S. state, supposedly there to represent the interests of that state's citizens, rather than those of the foreigners who come here without papers, quite illegally, and run up the tab using his state's services. They're his constituents, too now, in fact, the ones whose interests he chooses

It’s an article of faith among Democrats that the President’s base consists primarily of white working class voters without college degrees, and that they must be won back in order to beat Trump in 2020. This is why Elizabeth Warren inflicted that cringe-making, “I’m gonna get me a beer,” video on a long-suffering electorate. It is why Joe Biden, who reputedly enjoys a special rapport with blue collar voters, is the frontrunner for his party’s presidential nomination despite his penchant for gaffes and plagiarism. Thus, during this week’s Democratic debates, the candidates will devote considerable effort to courting the “deplorables.” This will, however, be an exercise in futility because everything

Former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) offered some praise for President Trump, saying he’s energized a base of Republican voters who didn’t previously participate in politics. “What I think people get excited about is he's not taking any crap,” Ryan said Sunday in a wide-ranging interview with PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff. “I mean, he’s taking on political correctness, he’s taking fights that a lot of people want to see fought. The forgotten man that he speaks to is a person that finally feels like they’re being taken seriously, they’re being paid attention to. And he’s concerned about their issues.”
