Kerry Washington promoting abortion on her TV show Scandal

Kerry Washington has only one perspective: That of a rabid proggie. From the Daily Beast (in 2016):

“Four years ago, acclaimed actress Kerry Washington penned a stirring op-ed for The Daily Beast about why American women should support the reelection of President Barack Obama.

President Obama knows the importance of women’s rights and women’s health. He was raised by a single mom, and he has been surrounded by smart, strong women ever since—he’s married to one and he’s a father of two. So for our president, women’s issues aren’t just political, they’re personal for him as well,” she wrote.

On Friday night, less than two months away from the general election, a pregnant Washington made an appearance on HBO’s late-night talk show Real Time with Bill Maher in order to make another plea to American women: vote for Hillary Clinton over women-bashing Donald Trump.”

That was rather rich considering that the real #waronwomen exists in Hollywood.

Kerry has appeared in the TV show Scandal as Olivia Pope. In 2015, her character had an abortion. From the Washington Post:

So Thursday night’s “Scandal” stunned quite a few viewers when D.C. fixer Olivia Pope had an abortion, a storyline that came out of nowhere. The audience had no idea that Olivia, finally together with President Fitz (Tony Goldwyn), was pregnant. Fitz didn’t even know she was pregnant.

In the middle of the episode, viewers suddenly saw Olivia arrive at a medical office and then lie down on an operating table as a doctor began the procedure. There was no dialogue from Olivia — just the sound of “Silent Night” playing in the background, along with voice-over of Olivia’s father Rowan (Joe Morton) delivering this speech in another scene:

“Family is a burden … a pressure point, soft tissue, an illness, an antidote to greatness. You think you’re better off with people who rely on you, depend on you, but you’re wrong, because you will inevitably end up needing them, which makes you weak, pliable. Family doesn’t complete you. It destroys you.”

“It’s (the abortion) not spoken of in the episode at all,” Beers said. “It just happens, there’s no lead-up.”

“That’s what I thought was so brilliant about it,” Goldwyn added.

Expect Kerry’s new show to push another liberal agenda. And seeing how the show is based in Chicago, I would not be surprised if that agenda was gun control.

From Variety: Facebook is continuing its push into scripted programming with an order for a drama series that boasts “Scandal” star Kerry Washington among its executive producers, Variety has learned exclusively.

Titled “Five Points,” the series is set on the South Side of Chicago and takes a look at high school students from five unique points of view. When a life changing event occurs, all of these different perspectives will be necessary to understand the truth. The cast currently includes “CSI: Cyber” alum Hayley Kiyoko and actress and model Madison Pettis. It will air on Watch, Facebook’s new platform for original shows.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Indigenous and Facebook in order to tell this important, thought provoking and compelling story,” Washington said.

The series was created by Adam Giaudrone, who will serve as writer and executive producer. Along with Washington, Jon Avnet and Jake Avnet of Indigenous Media will also executive produce with Indigenous’ Sage Scroope and Ben Fast will also producing. Rodrigo Garcia and Thomas Carter will also executive produce, with Carter also directing the 10-episode series. Indigenous Media is the studio. Pilar Savone, executive vice president of development and production for Washington’s Simpson Street Productions, will also executive produce.

“We are thrilled to have the incredibly talented Kerry Washington join our producing team,” said Jon Avnet, co-founder of Indigenous Media. “Her strong perspective coupled with Thomas Carter’s gifted direction will take ‘Five Points’ to the next level.”

The real U.S.-Russian conspiracy: Russia gave multi-million $ bribe to Clinton Foundation for 2010 uranium deal

Yesterday, while on her book tour in the UK, pathological liar Hillary Clinton claimed to have broken her toe while “running down stairs” in heels and fallen backward. (As astute reader MomOfIV points out, it’s quite a feat to break a toe by falling backward.)

I pointed out in my post that Hillary’s story is incredible because:

  1. Hillary’s spokesman initially said she’d sprained her ankle.
  2. In 9 days, Hillary will be 70 years old. Not only are 70-year-olds unlikely to run down stairs, that Hillary did so while wearing heels is even more preposterous given that during last year’s months-long presidential campaign, she was in such bad shape that she had to be propped up while standing, hoisted up a short flight of stairs, and collapsed into a van at the 9/11 memorial in New York.

April 16, 2016 at Southwest College, Los Angeles.

February 4, 2016, in Charleston, SC.

Using the story of a broken toe, Hillary’s spokesman throws doubt on whether she could continue her book tour, which I predict she will discontinue, if she hasn’t done that already.

Here’s the real reason why the “broke a toe running down stairs wearing heels” cover story was concocted.

The news broke today that the Obama administration’s FBI and DOJ had known, as early as 2009, about a multi-million $ payoff bribe that the Russian government “routed” to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary was secretary of state, prior to the State Department’s approval of a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium.

report for The Hill, October 17, 2017, that according to government documents and interviews, federal agents had evidence as early as 2009 that Russian nuclear industry officials, in particular an official named Vadim Mikerin, were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Russia’s atomic energy business inside the United States, including:

  • Bribes and kickbacks to an American uranium trucking firm in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
  • Millions of dollars “routed” (via money launderers) by Russian nuclear officials to the Clinton Foundation during the time Hillary was secretary of state.

The FBI’s evidence consists of an eyewitness account, and extensive financial records, secret recordings and intercept emails gathered by a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry.

Rather than bring charges in 2010, however, Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ), under Attorney General Eric Holder, continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, all the while leaving the American public and Congress in the dark, as the Obama administration made two major decisions benefiting Russia’s commercial nuclear ambitions:

  1. The first decision occurred in October 2010, when the Hillary Clinton’s State Department and Obama government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States unanimously approved the partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, giving Moscow control of more than 20% of America’s uranium supply.
  2. The second nuclear deal was made in 2011 when the Obama administration approved Rosatom’s Tenex subsidiary’s sale of commercial uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants in partnership with the U.S. Enrichment Corp.

Speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials, “a person who worked on the case” told The Hill:

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions.

Congress was kept in the dark.

Former Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), who chaired the House Intelligence Committee during the time the FBI probe was being conducted, told The Hill he had never been told anything about the Russian nuclear corruption case even though many fellow lawmakers had serious concerns about the Obama administration’s approval of the Uranium One deal:

“Not providing information on a corruption scheme before the Russian uranium deal was approved by U.S. regulators and engage appropriate congressional committees has served to undermine U.S. national security interests by the very people charged with protecting them. The Russian efforts to manipulate our American political enterprise is breathtaking.”

In 2015, conservative author Peter Schweitzer and The New York Times documented how Bill Clinton had collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees and his charitable foundation collected millions in donations from parties interested in the Russian nuclear deal while Hillary Clinton presided on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

The Obama administration and the Clintons defended their actions at the time, insisting there was no evidence that any Russians or donors engaged in wrongdoing and there was no national security reason for any member of the committee to oppose the Uranium One deal — all of which is a lie.

FBI, Department of Energy and court documents reviewed by The Hill show the FBI in fact had gathered substantial evidence well before the committee’s decision that Vadim Mikerin — Moscow director of Rosatom’s Tenex and the main Russian official overseeing Putin’s nuclear expansion inside the United States — had been engaged in bribery since 2009.

Despite the FBI’s knowledge of Russian bribery, then-AG Eric Holder, who headed the DOJ (and therefore the FBI, an agency within the DOJ), was on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States together with Hillary Clinton when the committee approved the Uranium One deal.

Neither the spokesman for Holder nor for Hillary returned calls from The Hill seeking comment. The Justice Department also didn’t comment.

Absurdly, the same figures who were in charge of the FBI investigations of Russian bribery since 2009, are now involved in the investigation of alleged, but still unproven after more than 8 months of investigation, collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign:

  • Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee who, as U.S. Attorney, had supervised the FBI investigation into Russian nuclear bribery, now serves as President Trump’s deputy attorney general.
  • Andrew McCabe was assistant FBI director in 2009 and now deputy FBI director under Trump. Ironically, McCabe himself is under congressional and DOJ inspector general investigation in connection with money his wife’s Virginia state Senate campaign accepted in 2015 from now-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe at a time when McAuliffe was reportedly under investigation by the FBI.
  • Robert Mueller was FBI director in 2009, and now the special counsel in charge of the Trump investigation.

Hillary Clinton fell ‘running down stairs’, breaks toe

Brooke Singman reports for Fox News that yesterday, Oct. 15, 2017, while on her book tour in the UK, Hillary Clinton “apparently fell and injured her foot,” which led to her canceling or delaying interviews with British journalists before she resurfaced on a BBC program with her right foot in a cast.

Singman writes: “As with previous Clinton health scares, the details are a bit unclear.”

Hillary’s spokesman initially said she “twisted her ankle.” He tweeted a picture of Clinton wearing a special boot during an appearance on the BBC’s “Graham Norton Show.”

But according to the Daily Mail, Hillary gave an entirely different account. She said she broke her toe “running down the stairs” in heels and falling backward.

Hillary’s piggy toes

Born on October 26, 1947, Hillary will be 70 years old in ten days. No 70-year-old runs down stairs, heels or no heels. Certainly not 70-year-old Hillary Clinton who, during the presidential campaign last year, could barely walk or stand without being propped up.

Remember this?

February 4, 2016, in Charleston, SC.

And this?

April 16, 2016 at Southwest College, Los Angeles.

Or this?

How about this, on September 11, 2016?

Do you know how you can tell if Hillary’s lying?

Answer: Whenever she opens her mouth.

That woman can’t tell the truth even if it’s about a simple thing like whether she’d brushed her teeth this morning.

According to Hannity.com, Hillary “is currently receiving medical attention, and is expected to receive an x-ray” this afternoon “to determine if she should continue her book tour or cancel all future events.”

Jimmy Kimmel says good riddance to losing 30% of Republican viewers

Definition of “good riddance” or “riddance”: Relief or deliverance from being rid of something undesirable.

Attention, Republicans!

Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t care if you watch his ABC late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. In fact, he’s glad to be rid of you.

So you’d be a fool to watch his show.

Naomi Lim reports for Washington Examiner, Oct. 15, 2017, that Kimmel told CBS’ Sunday Morning that because of his on-air rants about healthcare and gun control, his show is losing Republican viewers. He said:

“Three years ago, I was equally liked by Republicans and Democrats. And then Republican numbers went way down, like 30 percent, or whatever. And you know, as a talk show host, that’s not ideal but I would do it again in a heartbeat.

When conservative critics like Ben Shapiro slam him for parading as a “moral arbiter,” Kimmel told CBS:

“I’m not. I mean, I agree with him. I’m nobody’s moral arbiter. You don’t have to watch the show. You don’t have to listen to what I say.”

Then Kimmel defiantly added that while he preferred that everyone with a television watch his show:

“But if they’re so turned off by my opinion on healthcare and gun violence then, I don’t know, I probably wouldn’t want to have a conversation with them anyway. Not good riddance, but riddance.

Kimmel earned both high praise and sharp rebukes for his foray into the healthcare debate in September, an issue that he insists is important to him because his six-month-old son Billy was born with a rare congenital heart defect. Kimmel’s portrayal of his son as a victim of President Trump’s efforts to reform/repeal Obamacare is puzzling, given the fact that with an annual salary of $10 million and an estimated net worth of $35 million, Kimmel easily can afford his son’s healthcare costs under whatever health care system.

Kimmel also garnered similarly polarized reactions when he choked up during a monologue imploring Congress to act on gun control in the wake of the October 1 Las Vegas shooting massacre.

Jimmy Kimmel to woman: Put your mouth to what’s in my pants

Over the past month, ABC late-night TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has forcefully spoken out on the need for gun control and against President Trump’s efforts to reform/repeal Obamacare.

The Daily Beast points out that Kimmel, however, was noticeably silent on Harvey Weinstein’s sexual molestation and rape of women. Although the New York Times‘ Weinstein exposé was published on Oct. 5, Kimmel and his late-night counterparts Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon and James Corden did not cover it until four days later on Oct. 9.

Kimmel defended himself on Good Morning America, saying that “the Harvey Weinstein thing, people like this false equivalence of that’s somehow equivalent to what happened in Las Vegas,” arguing that Weinstein’s alleged assault of dozens of women does not deserve the same attention as the killing of nearly 60 people in Las Vegas. In so doing, Kimmel presented a false either/or choice, because there’s no reason why Kimmel couldn’t have spoken out on both Weinstein and Las Vegas.

Kimmel then said that Weinstein is “not a friend of mine” because “I’m not in the movie business,” which is absurd on its face because of Kimmel’s hosting of the Academy Awards and his friendship with many of the movie stars in Weinstein’s orbit.

The video below of a so-called “comedy sketch” explains Kimmel’s reticence on the subject of Harvey Weinstein.

Transcript:

Kimmel to woman: “I’ve stuffed something in my pants, and you’re allowed to feel around on the outside of the pants. You have 10 seconds to then guess what is in my pants.”

The woman bends down to feel Kimmel’s crotch.

Kimmel: “You should use two hands, two hands.”

To another woman squatting down and groping his crotch: “Maybe it would be easier if you put your mouth on it.”

Later, Kimmel reveals what was in his pants — a zucchini with a rubber band around the top, to simulate a penis.

This is what passes as comedy in America today. What a commentary on “feminism” that there are women so desperate to be on TV that they willingly degrade themselves — and right in the open, on a public street.

Hillary Clinton in talks to become a professor at Columbia University

hillary clinton nasty woman

I’d rather poke a pencil in my eye than listen to an hour-long lecture from this serial liar.

From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton is ‘in talks’ to become a professor at Columbia University in New York City. Sources speaking with the New York Daily News said the school is considering multiple options with her. These include giving her the role of ‘University Professor’ and housing her archives there.

The former Secretary of State could teach in one school – such as Columbia Law School or the School of International and Public Affairs – or across many different schools.

‘No decisions have been made, but there are talks,’ one source told the New York Daily News. Columbia University declined to comment on the matter.

The former First Lady and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate would join her daughter, Chelsea, at the Ivy League school.

Chelsea has served as an adjunct professor in the Mailman School of Public Health since 2012. The former First Daughter and Clinton Foundation board member received an undergraduate degree from Stanford, master’s degrees from Oxford and Columbia and a doctorate from Oxford.

Hillary Clinton received her undergraduate degree in 1969 from Wellesley College, where she wrote her senior thesis on the organizing tactics of activist Saul Alinsky. She later attended and received a Juris Doctor in 1973 from Yale Law School, where she met her husband, Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States.

She wrote in her memoir, ‘What Happened’ that she declined to attend Harvard because a professor there told her: ‘We don’t need any more women at Harvard.’

What Michelle Obama said when she left the White House: “We’re free!”

Michelle_Obama

Girl bye…

That’s pretty much what I said, too.

From Daily Mail: When former President Barack Obama finished his term in the White House last January, his wife and First Lady, Michelle, exclaimed ‘We’re free’, according to Richard Branson’s new autobiography.

The former US leaders traveled down to the billionaire Virgin executive’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands shortly after Obama handed the White House over to President Donald Trump.

Upon greeting Branson on the Caribbean island, Michelle Obama told him, ‘We’re free’, and told his staff to call her and her husband by their first names rather than their formal titles.

‘It’s so nice to have my name back after eight years’, Branson recalled Michelle Obama saying in his new book, Finding My Virginity, which also mentions his other famous friends including Bill Gates and the late Nelson Mandela.

Branson said that at the end of their ten-day trip, the Obamas treated his staff to a thank you party. They were ‘dancing with us, getting the party going, making everybody feel at home and welcome’, Branson wrote in the book.

The vacation also marked Obama’s return to his love of watersports, activities he couldn’t participate in while he served as president. He learned how to kite surf while on the island and challenged Branson to see who could stay up the longest. The president won the challenge.

Michelle Obama spoke out about what life was like in the white house during a tech conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, last month. ‘It’s like being shot out of a cannon while drinking from a fire hydrant blind,’ she explained as she told of how she got used to her new way of living. ‘You have to tell The White House what kind of toilet paper you like. You don’t know where your forks are.’
