  1. Poll: Half think Franken should resign A majority of voters think the Senate Ethics Committee should investigate Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), and half think Franken should resign from the Senate, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll. The poll was conducted after radio personality Leeann Tweeden alleged that Franken groped her in 2006, prior to his Senate tenure — but before a second woman, Lindsay Menz, said that Franken touched her inappropriately while he was a senator in 2010. Still, 66 percent of voters said the ethics panel should probe Franken’s conduct, while only 15 percent think the committee should not look into the matter. Fully 50 percent of voters think Franken, who has served in the Senate since 2009, should resign, and 22 percent think he should not resign. ***************************************** When the Democrat pollsters have it at 50%, you know it is more like 75%.
  2. Obama White House official bids for The Weinstein Company The Wall Street Journal reports that Maria Contreras-Sweet, who led the Small Business Administration under President Obama, is behind the bid. Film producer Harvey Weinstein was sacked from TWC after he was accused of sexual harassment and assault. One of those supporting Contreras-Sweet is lawyer Gloria Allred, who is representing several of the women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and alleged assault. Last year, Harvey Weinstein said TWC, including its film library, was worth up to $800m and had no debt. However, a number of the firm's partners have cut ties after the allegations against Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment. *************************************************** The Obama administration was the worst ever and this only proves they're as sleazy as everyone said they were.
  3. Charlie Rose fired by CBS, and PBS drops his talk show over sexual harassment allegations Charlie Rose’s CBS News career came to an unceremonious end Tuesday when the network fired him over allegations of sexual harassment. “A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose’s employment with CBS News, effective immediately,” CBS News President David Rhodes wrote in a note to staff. “This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program. Despite Charlie’s important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace — a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place.” PBS followed with an announcement that it no longer will distribute “Charlie Rose,” the nightly talk show hosted by Rose since 1991. “In light of yesterday’s revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and canceled distribution of his programs,” a PBS spokesperson said in a statement. “PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect.” Rose’s departure marks the downfall of one of television’s most venerable journalists and a major blow to CBS News, which enjoyed its greatest success ever in the morning thanks to “CBS This Morning,” which was built around Rose and his co-anchors, Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell, in 2012. ********************************************* They can always call them Charlie's angels.
  4. Report: Democratic Rep. John Conyers settled sexual harassment complaint in 2015 Washington (CNN)Democratic Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, who is the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 after allegedly sexually harassing a staffer, according to an explosive report published Monday. BuzzFeed News obtained documents, which includes four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former aides who allege that Conyers made sexual advances to female staff in his office. The repeated requests from Conyers, according to BuzzFeed, included sexual favors, inappropriate touching and transporting women who were believed to be having affairs with the congressman. Conyers office has not responded to CNN's multiple requests for comment. He told The Associated Press he hasn't settled any sexual harassment complaints with any staff members, adding he did not know about claims of inappropriate touching and learned of the story just hours earlier. ****************************************** Here is another one to add to the pot of soup.
  5. Top California Dem stepping down amid new sexual harassment claims A top California Democrat is scrapping his re-election campaign and resigning his leadership post amid growing sexual harassment allegations. California Assembly Majority Whip Raul Bocanegra announced he plans to step down next year -- after a staffer said he put his hands inside her blouse at a nightclub in 2009 and The Los Angeles Times reportedly presented him with harassment allegations from a total of six women. Bocanegra reportedly announced he would immediately step down from his post as majority whip, citing “persistent rumors and speculation” over sexual harassment claims. The decision marks the first resignation or retirement in California tied to the wave of harassment allegations that has swept the country and implicated numerous lawmakers and candidates. ********************************************* Another Democrat caught groping? This is a pandemic now.
  6. Charlie Rose Made Crude Sexual Advances, Several Women Say After allegations surfaced Monday that the longtime television host Charlie Rose made crude sexual advances toward multiple women who worked on his show over a dozen years, CBS suspended him from its morning program and PBS announced that it would no longer distribute his long-running nightly interview show. Eight women, including three who talked on the record, told The Washington Post that he made lewd phone calls to them, walked around naked in front of them or groped them. In addition, two women told The New York Times that he made unwanted advances toward them, trying to kiss them without their permission. The women spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared Mr. Rose’s power over their careers and what some described as his volatile temper. In a statement, Mr. Rose said he did not believe all the allegations were accurate but also apologized. *************************************** Another big Democrat is caught sexually harassing women. This guy has been lying on TV for years to promote his agenda, and is now busted.

    Bill Clinton is facing NEW accusations of sexual assault by four women while the former president was working with a billionaire playboy Bill Clinton is facing explosive new charges of sexual assault from four women, according to highly placed Democratic Party sources and an official who served in both the Clinton and Obama administrations. The current accusations against the 71-year-old former president — whose past is littered with charges of sexual misconduct — stem from the period after he left the White House in 2001, say the sources. Attorneys representing the women, who are coordinating their efforts, have notified Clinton they are preparing to file four separate lawsuits against him. As part of the ongoing negotiations, the attorneys for the women are asking for substantial payouts in return for their clients' silence. A member of Clinton's legal team has confirmed the existence of the new allegations. ****************************************** Him and Al Franken make a wonderful team for the Democrats.
  8. In win for Trump, Nebraska approves Keystone XL pipeline route LINCOLN, Nebraska/CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Nebraska regulators approved a route for TransCanada Corp’s (TRP.TO) Keystone XL pipeline through the state on Monday, lifting the last big regulatory obstacle for the long-delayed project that U.S. President Donald Trump wants built. The 3-2 vote by the Nebraska Public Service Commission helps clear the way for the pipeline linking Canada’s Alberta oil sands to refineries in the United States, but is likely to be tied up for years in court challenges by opponents who say the project is an environmental risk. “We are going to fight like hell to make sure this pipeline never gets built,” said Jane Kleeb, the head of anti-pipeline Bold Nebraska, a political advocacy group. The commission’s approval was not for TransCanada’s preferred route, but for a more costly alternative that would add five miles of pipeline along with an additional pumping station and transmission lines. The proposed line has been a lightning rod of controversy since it was first advocated nearly a decade ago with environmentalists making the project a symbol of their broader fight against fossil fuels and global warming. Business groups and Trump, a Republican, said it could boost the economy. **************************************** Next is the wall, so people should get used to it.

    Al Franken represents the Democrats well. If they allow him to stay in office then they can't complain about anyone else.
  13. Morrissey comments on Hollywood sexual abuse scandal, says some victims are 'just disappointed' Morrissey has invited fresh criticism over comments he made about Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. The former Smiths frontman spoke about the ongoing sexual harassment scandal in Hollywood, reportedly calling claims against Spacey "ridiculous" and arguing that definitions of harassment and assault have become too broad. “As far as I know, he was in a bedroom with a 14-year-old. Kevin Spacey was 26, boy 14. One wonders where the boy’s parents were," he told Der Spiegel, according to a translation cited by AV Club. "People know exactly what's going on," he reportedly said when asked about Weinstein. "And they play along. Afterwards, they feel embarrassed or disliked. And then they turn it around and say: 'I was attacked, I was surprised'. But if everything went well, and if it had given them a great career, they would not talk about it. ********************************** This guy Morrissey is all ready to become a Hollywood star, lol.
  14. NYC subway to use gender-neutral terms during announcements NEW YORK — When it comes to the New York City subways, there’s no such thing as ladies and gentlemen. Conductors on subway trains have been told to stop addressing passengers as “ladies and gentlemen” when making announcements about delays, detours or other things, and instead use the gender-neutral terms “passengers,” ‘’riders,” and “everyone.” The new train announcement scripts are part of an effort by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to improve communication with passengers frustrated with having to deal with a system troubled with delays, mechanical failures and even derailments. Conductors have also been instructed to give subway riders more information about delays, departing from a longtime practice of making sparse announcements that sometimes obscure the real reason a train isn’t moving. A lack of straightforward info, officials say, can leave passengers wondering if they should ride it out, transfer trains or get out and hail a cab. ************************************* They wouldn't want to confuse anyone in liberal New York, so are making it gender neutral.

    Judge Running For Ohio Governor Boasts On Facebook He's Bedded 50 Women An Ohio Supreme Court justice who is campaigning to become governor of the state took to Facebook on Friday to reveal that he has been “sexually intimate” with 50 “very attractive females.” It was a startling campaign strategy in the wake of a burgeoning number of sexual misconduct accusations across the nation and one that triggered tremendous controversy in Ohio. Democrat Bill O’Neill’s campaign spokesman quit within hours of the post. O’Neill said he revealed his sexual past to protest what he sees as a new standard, “driven by the media, that if you’re not absolutely pure you’re not eligible to run for office in America,” he told the local Fox News station. “That’s wrong.” The candidate, who is ignoring calls to quit the race — and the bench ― deleted the 50-lovers post but added a clarification Friday on Facebook concerning Franken. O’Neill called it “morally wrong” to demand Franken’s resignation after the senator apologized for a “non criminal act of indiscretion.” O’Neill concluded: “Lighten up folks. This is how Democrats remain in the minority.” *************************************** With the way the Democrats treat Bill Clinton like he's a god, no wonder he has no fear. It only shows how this "judge" and Al Franken are the faces of the new Democratic party.
