Al Franken Has Long History of Sexual Misconduct Jokes Before Accusation of Groping Woman’s Breasts

Senator Al Franken’s past jokes about rape and other forms of inappropriate sexual conduct resurfaced Thursday after a radio anchor accused him of forcefully kissing her during a rehearsal and of groping her breasts while she slept on a flight fromAfghanistan following a USO tour in December 2006.
Franken rose to fame as a comedian and writer for NBC’s Saturday Night Live, and some of his quips and performances were touchy subjects well before he ran to represent Minnesota in the Senate.

Franken criticized "don't ask don't tell"

Jack Kemp

Franken is on the cover of the NY Post today, as was Anthony Weiner several times.

In this video from Rush Limbaugh, Franken is on the Senate floor talking about his not comprehending the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy. It seems to me that Franken had his own version of Don't Ask Don't Tell when it came to sexual assaults.

Everybody Knew About Al Franken
Nov 16, 2017

RUSH: April 16th, 1976, Al Franken at Harvard — this is a story posted at the Harvard Crimson, the school newspaper. "I just don’t like homosexuals… Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia.” That’s what Franken said in this Harvard Crimson story. Drudge has pulled that quote out of this story and that’s the link at the Drudge reported.

END

As Minnesotans know, Franken is up for reelection in 2020. If he loses, he now can not do ads for Target saying how there are no perverts who will enter the co-ed bathrooms at Target stores, that he insures the integrity of the place.

Goings on at Mall of America

Dana Mathewson

I'm sorry I let my sister-in-law loose in the Mall of America a few weeks ago, although she escaped unharmed. Not so for some other folks recently, though you'd not necessarily know it if your sole source of information was the infamous Star Tribune.

On Roy Moore: When did 'proof' become immaterial?

Dana Mathewson

A good Barry Farber article.From WND.

From Tim:

When a conservative Republican decided to buck the system, that's when. I remember this same thing when Clarence Thomas was accused of harassment by Anita Hill "it's not the nature of the evidence but the seriousness of the charge", a standard that was immediately dropped when Bill Clinton appeared on the scene.

Brian sends this our way. Looks like Claire mcCaskill is running scared And, as always, she is full of more balogna than a first rate deli in New York:

The Collapsing Case Against Moore

Timothy Birdnow

The all red Gloria Allred has trotted out a woman claiming she was sexually assaulted by Roy Moore forty years ago to buttress the case made by another woman who claims Moore got handsy with her teenage self. Allred's client says Moore locked her in his car and tried to force her to fellate him. She also claims he signed her yearbook (with "Merry Christmas" for crying out loud) and that she had him banned from the mall where she worked.

Well, the yearbook signiature is in two different colored inks and appears to someho experts (who have not been allowed to examine the actual article) to be a forgery. Also, the woman's stepson says she is lying for money.

Now the woman's claim that she had Moore banned from the mall is falling apart.

Why the Destruction of Roy Moore Should Bother us

Timothy Birdnow

One of the things that has me so riled about this destruction of Roy Moore is the way it is being done and the knock-kneed response of Republicans who should know better. This thing reminds me of Chamberlain at Munich in 1938; desperate to avoid any conflict with Hitler the British Prime Minister carved Czechoslovakia up and served it ala mode to Der Fuehrer in servitude and abject fear. Saying "Peace in our time" Chamberlain wound up unleashing the largest war in human history - all because he was too cowardly to stop Hitler. The little corporal had the audacity to take what was not rightfully his and Western leaders gave it to him out of fear of the very thing which they themselves unleashed.

An Agenda for Losers

"Raging against the establishment for the sake of raging is an agenda for losers, and it will cost conservatives the votes in Congress they need to achieve conservative goals.” —The Wall Street Journal (Courtesy of the Federalist Patriot.)

"Supporting the Establishment for the sake of support is an even bigger loser" - Birdnow's Aviary

Rage against the Establishment is entirely justified, as the GOP has controlled Congress for all but a couple of years since the late 1990's and has been unwilling to act. Now, given both houses of Congress and the Presidency, they still fail to act and treat the base as if it is the enemy. Apparently the Wall Street Journal thinks we should support people who are leading us down the path to hell more slowly. That is, in the insider world of the WSJ, "smart politics".

The Journal fails to understand that eternal retreat is not a winning strategy in war or politics. Oh, and energy and passion far outweigh passivity and ennui.

I've never seen a store offer to let a shoplifter keep half of what he is stealing if they catch him. Apparently the WSJ and other establishmentarian outfits disagree.  That is precisely what our friends in the GOP have been doing...

Hillary Personally Approved Visa for Moslem Rapist

Timothy Birdnow

This from P.J. Media via Judicial Watch:

Hillary Clinton PERSONALLY Overturned Visa Ban for Islamist Figure Now Accused of Rape
Source: PJ Media

European Islamist scion Tariq Ramadan was banned from the U.S. by the Bush administration in February 2004 for his financial support of a charity that funded terrorist groups. In January 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overturned that ban. Clinton personally approved a visa for the controversial grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. Now, Tariq Ramadan is facing multiple accusations of rape and sexual assault of minors.

Target Stock Dropping

Jack Kemp

Target stock is at 54.49, down over $5.50 a share today based on dissapointing pre-Christmas sales. Gee, I wonder why.

Rush is saying that Judge Moore was a DEMOCRAT until 1992. That explains his early behavior!

Moore Accuser's Iffy Yearbook Comment

Timothy Birdnow

Gateway Pundit points out that the signiature allegedly by Moore in the Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson's yearbook is in two different colored inks.

While the message is in black ink, the part that says;

"Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,”

Is in blue. Hmmmmm.

Another interesting thing, who writes this:

"To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.”

Really, who? Nobody writes DA after their name just because they are a lawyer. on a private message, nor Olde Hickory House just because that is where he signed it. And who has grown men not associated with their school sign their yearbook anyway? And the message itself is poorly worded, as it say "to" and then "I could not say" which is illogical. Moore is clearly a more eloquent and literate man than that.

Oh, and yearbooks come out at the end of the year, not at Christmas time.

The Real Target in the Moore Scandal

Timothy Birdnow

Here it is[l/lik] - the real target of the Roy Moore sex scandal.

From The Hill article:

"The Moore controversy has also reignited questions about past allegations concerning Trump. The White House's official position on the women who accused Trump of sexual harassment is that they are lying, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said last month."

End excerpt.

I told everyone when the Left allowed harvey Weinstein to be taken out that they were doing this to reinvogorate their tried-and-true weapon. Sex charges weren't working anymore, largely because the Democrats had been going hog wild while making these charges and they had to regain the moral high ground. So they tossed out Weiner and Weinstein and a few others and, in the spirit of moral righteousness, are now turning their guns on the big game.

Weinstein was always about getting Trump. Mark my words. And so is this despicable smear on Roy Moore.Sadly, the idiots in the GOP have already tossed Moore overboard and pitched the anchor on top of him. Even Mike Lee and Ted Cruz have shown their yellow backsides in this. I cannot believe the pucillanimous character of these "leaders" who should understand exactly what this is about and why it is happening. Doesn't the Wapo - Domaine de Romani-Conti of fake news - involvement in this give the game away? And the timing? And the fact that the Wapo writer just happened to overhear a conversation while down in Alabama? And all this after a bitter primary race where Mitch McConnelll spent millions to elect Luther Strange and lost. Doesn't anyone else think this is strange? Why didn't Big Luther and Mitchie the Pooh hear about this?

Why wasn't it reported by, say, a Birmingham newspaper or some other local news source? Why not by National Review? Isn't it odd that it was the Washington Post?

The Republican Party is playing with fire. This illustrates quite plainly that the Party bosses are unwilling to allow the voters to choose their own candidates. This could lead to a permanent split in the party, with voters walking out in disgust. And it should.

This is rather like being married and having your spouse not only cheat on you but then demand alimony. then expecting you to not move out. If there was ever an argument for the cration of a third party this would be it.

I am coming to believe that the GOP is like the city of Sodom; not even one righteous man.

History Repeats with Mitch McConnell

Timothy Birdnow

Mitch McConnell spent millions of dollars in a deep southern state and lost - but refused to accept the will of the voters. Not I'm not talking about Alabama and Roy Moore but a few years ago in Mississippi, where McConnell supported gerirtric pork belly Thad Cochrane.

US breaks ground for new permanent base in Israel

By:   September 18 (2017)

TEL AVIV, Israel — U.S. and Israeli officers broke ground in Israel on Monday for a permanent U.S. Army base that will house dozens of U.S. soldiers, operating under the American flag, and charged with the mission of defending against rocket and missile attack.
The American base, officers in Israel say, will be an independent facility co-located at the Israel Defense Forces Air Defense School in southern Israel, near the desert capital of Beersheba. Once completed, the base will house U.S. operational systems to identify and intercept a spectrum of aerial threats, along with barracks, recreational and other facilities required to support several dozen American air defenders.

A slam at those who tear down historical monuments -- among other things

Dana Mathewson

Received today from Martha's Catholic priest friend"

Indignation over monuments to historical figures is beginning to turn into a kind of blind hysteria. In America, the Confederate dead, former Supreme Court justices, Christopher Columbus, and even the 19th-century physician known as the "father of gynecology” are all in the crosshairs. In Germany, some have called for removing statues of Martin Luther because of his anti-Semitism. Implicit in all this is a certain naiveté and presumption: if we had been around back then, we would not have committed those offenses. Jesus’ words to the scribes and Pharisees, however, is a remedy for that kind of self-righteous, simplistic thinking.

The scribes and Pharisees, the religious elite of first-century Judaism, believed themselves the heirs of righteous forefathers. Jesus speaks directly to this presumption: more...
