The cover story New York published this week centers on the stories of women and men who came forward about sexual abuse and harassment — and one who has not yet done so. In the issue, a woman who says former U.S. senator Al Franken groped her buttocks at an event in 2006 explains why she’s kept silent until now, and why she still fears using her name. “I was just out of college in my first job, working for U.S. senator Patty Murray,” she told New York. Franken, then exploring a run for the Senate, was the guest speaker

Franken is an arrogant, elitist pig. He became a Senator because of liberal Minnesota judges, not by Minnesota voters.

Really at this point, what difference does it make. He's creepy and an unconvicted sex offender and a lousy comedian. His failure as a funny man is his biggest character defect. His obsession with sexual contact with unwilling women is a serious mental disorder and leads to criminal conduct. His comedy leads to criminal conduct as well.

I see what we are doing here. We are hitting the communists with their own methods. I am very uncomfortable with it. I like to think we are better than those inner city street thugs and to use their low life tactics just seems...wrong. Have we really won anything if we become them?

I just have a question. Are there still women left in the world that would just smack his hand, slap his face, and tell him to keep his hands to himself...and then move on? Most of the women I know would not hesitate to make their displeasure known in similar conditions regardless of how important the jerk was. I guess they are just more submissive these days.

While I'm not doubting her story or believing it, if she worked for patty murray, that was the one person in Congress she definitely should have gone to. Murray became a senator because the previous senator, Democrat Brock Adams was more or less forced to quit when he was credibly accused by many women of being drugged and molested by him. Nothing was done until he (allegedly) did it to a young woman whose family was politically connected.

Working for Patty Murray; groped by Al Franken; both from the Pervert Party. Shouldn't she have enjoyed every second of the groping?

Leaked audio comments from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg include him saying that the tech company would likely have no choice but to sue the U.S. government to stave off being broken up if Elizabeth Warren becomes president. The comments, obtained by The Verge, span a wide range of topics and deep insight into Zuckerberg's thinking, going much further than the usually stoic CEO appears in public.

Have you ever sat down in a restaurant and felt instantly drawn to a particular dish on the menu? The reason might be something as simple as that you love the dish’s main ingredient, but it’s often more than that. It could be the item’s placement on the menu, its name, even whom you saw eating it as you crossed the restaurant. Understanding all the factors that attract us to certain foods is a growing area of research, with enormous potential for addressing something unexpected: climate change.

Cruise ships are big business for port cities around the world. But starting next year, Cannes, one of the world's most famous ports-of-call, will no longer welcome them unless they comply with strict pollution controls. Passengers who choose to sail on dirty vessels will have to disembark elsewhere. So far, the industry doesn't seem worried. It should be. Increasingly, consumers are voicing concerns about the environmental effects of their travel and pressuring companies that don't meet their heightened standards. In Europe, "flight shaming" has dented airlines’ earnings as travelers look for low-carbon alternatives. The cruise industry, far less necessary to

BIDDEFORD, Maine — Former Democratic President Bill Clinton and former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are pining for the days when the two parties worked together. The two appeared together to talk about strengthening America’s commitment to education on Friday at the University of New England. Partnering with the George & Barbara Bush Foundation, the university used the 30th anniversary of the late President George H.W. Bush’s 1989 Education Summit as the jumping-off point for the discussion. Clinton and Bush also spoke of the elder Bush’s “kinder, gentler” brand of politics during an era of bipartisan achievements.

A collection of luxury cars seized from Equatorial Guinea’s vice president, Teodorin Obiang Nguema, will be auctioned off in Switzerland and are estimated to bring in 18.5m Swiss francs ($18.7m). “This is an exceptional sale,” Philip Kantor, of British auctioneers Bonhams, told AFP. “It’s a private collection of supercars, with very low mileage.” Among the cars to go under the hammer at a Geneva golf club on Sunday are seven Ferraris, three Lamborghinis, five Bentleys, a Maserati and a McLaren. The most expensive lots are a Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, valued at between 4.8m and 5.7m euros ($5.2-6.2m) and a yellow

A new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows a majority of Americans do not think President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office. Only 37% of respondents think the president should be impeached and removed, while 57% do not. In a clear partisan divide, 4% of Republicans and 73% of Democrats surveyed support impeachment. Those who responded against impeachment include 95% of Republicans surveyed and 21% of Democrats. The poll was conducted between Sept. 19 and 23, just as Trump was in the thick of a controversy after news of a whistleblower complaint from within the intelligence community

The Kiowa County Press in Eads and The Chronicle-News in Trinidad refused Polis spokesman Conor Cahill's request this month to "unpublish" the story, a straightforward account about a new state office dedicated to the future of labor that Chicago-based The Center Square wrote. Cahill didn't ask for a correction but objected to the group's affiliations and said the story

One of the greatest public services President Donald Trump has done for the nation is forcing institutions and people to reveal their true character. While this has been the most valuable when it comes to the media, it has also been valuable when it comes to unmasking globalist Republicans. This was again on display this week, most notably in the revelation that Paul Ryan was inciting Fox News from his position on the board of Fox Corporation to "decisively break" with President Trump.

Joe Biden’s corrupt dealings in Ukraine and those of his son must be investigated, and the time has come for him to drop out of the presidential race. While Biden served as vice president, his son Hunter was unaccountably making $50,000 a month “consulting” in an industry with which he was totally unfamiliar ­(energy), in a notoriously graft-prone country where he didn’t speak the language (Ukraine). Hunter made similarly sketchy deals with China. President Trump’s phone call this summer with his Ukrainian counterpart may have been ill-advised, but it simply didn’t rise to an impeachable offense. Meanwhile, the American people deserve to know the truth about the Biden family’s lucrative dealings

A northern Virginia girl has recanted her accusation that three classmates grabbed her and cut her dreadlocks on the playground of a northern Virginia private school. The Washington Post reports that the girl’s family issued an apology Monday to the boys, the school and the community. Last week the 12-year-old girl told multiple media outlets that three of her sixth-grade classmates at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield called her hair “ugly” while they assaulted her at recess. The girl is African American and said her attackers were white. The story received national attention.

Much to the ire of certain corners of the Right, Twitter has evidently suspended the account of "Mini AOC," an 8-year-old girl who lampoons liberal firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Any self-actualized conservative ought to admit that the tech giant was unequivocally right to do so. We rightfully criticize the Left when they prop up Greta Thunberg as an authority on climate change. Thunberg being a 16-year-old Swedish girl with a number of mental health problems renders her uniquely susceptible to the pressures of the global political stage. We understand that hiding behind children to voice the political opinions of adults is grossly disingenuous, and even more important, we know

Schumer, speaking at his Manhattan office, called on Trump to “prove to the American people that he can still govern” and is not “consumed” by Democrats’ push to impeach him. “Amidst the impeachment inquiry the gears of government can still move,” Schumer said. “Anyone who suggests otherwise is advancing a false narrative.”
