Liberal MSM’s about-face: Bill Clinton is a rapist

Something interesting is going on with the liberal MSM — they’re turning against the Clintons, specifically Bill Clinton.

At least three mainstays of MSM  — MSNBC, The Atlantic and The New York Times  — are calling Bill Clinton a rapist. Finally.

MSNBC

Last Friday night, November 10, 2017, the rabidly anti-Trump MSNBC host, Chris Hayes, sent out this tweet:

“As gross and cynical and hypocritical as the right’s ‘what about Bill Clinton’ stuff is, it’s also true that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against him.”

The Atlantic

Three days later on November 13, 2017, The Atlantic magazine’s contributing editor Caitlyn Flanagan writes about Bill Clinton at the 2016 Democratic National Convention:

“With a pencil neck and a sagging jacket he clambered gamely onto the stage after Hillary’s acceptance speech and played happily with the red balloons that fell from the ceiling.

When the couple repeatedly reminded the crowd of their new status as grandparents it was to suggest very different associations in voters’ minds. Hillary’s grandmotherhood was evoked to suggest the next phase in her lifelong work on behalf of women and children—in this case forging a bond with the millions of American grandmothers who are doing the hard work of raising the next generation, while their own adult children muddle through life. But Bill’s being a grandfather was intended to send a different message: Don’t worry about him anymore; he’s old now. He won’t get into those messes again.

Yet let us not forget the sex crimes of which the younger, stronger Bill Clinton was very credibly accused in the 1990s. Juanita Broaddrick reported that when she was a volunteer on one of his gubernatorial campaigns, she had arranged to meet him in a hotel coffee shop. At the last minute, he had changed the location to her room in the hotel, where she says he very violently raped her. She said that she fought against Clinton throughout a rape that left her bloodied. At a different Arkansas hotel, he caught sight of a minor state employee named Paula Jones, and, Jones said, he sent a couple of state troopers to invite her to his suite, where he exposed his penis to her and told her to kiss it. Kathleen Willey said that she met him in the Oval Office for personal and professional advice and that he groped her, rubbed his erect penis on her, and pushed her hand to his crotch.

It was a pattern of behavior; it included an alleged violent assault; the women involved had far more credible evidence than many of the most notorious accusations that have come to light in the past five weeks. But Clinton was not left to the swift and pitiless justice that today’s accused men have experienced. Rather, he was rescued by a surprising force: machine feminism. The movement had by then ossified into a partisan operation, and it was willing—eager—to let this friend of the sisterhood enjoy a little droit de seigneur.

The notorious 1998 New York Times op-ed by Gloria Steinem must surely stand as one of the most regretted public actions of her life. It slut-shamed, victim-blamed, and age-shamed; it urged compassion for and gratitude to the man the women accused. Moreover (never write an op-ed in a hurry; you’ll accidentally say what you really believe), it characterized contemporary feminism as a weaponized auxiliary of the Democratic Party. […]

The widespread liberal response to the sex-crime accusations against Bill Clinton found their natural consequence 20 years later in the behavior of Harvey Weinstein: Stay loudly and publicly and extravagantly on the side of signal leftist causes and you can do what you want in the privacy of your offices and hotel rooms. But the mood of the country has changed. We are in a time when old monuments are coming down and men are losing their careers over things they did to women a long time ago. […]

The Democratic Party needs to make its own reckoning of the way it protected Bill Clinton. The party needs to come to terms with the fact that it was so enraptured by their brilliant, Big Dog president and his stunning string of progressive accomplishments that it abandoned some of its central principles. The party was on the wrong side of history, and there are consequences for that. Yet expedience is not the only reason to make this public accounting. If it is possible for politics and moral behavior to coexist, then this grave wrong needs to be acknowledged. If Weinstein and Mark Halperin and Louis C. K. and all the rest can be held accountable, so can our former president and so can his party, which so many Americans so desperately need to rise again.”

New York Times

Writing in today’s (November 14, 2017) print version of the New York Times, Op-Ed Columnist Michelle Goldberg is more mealy-mouthed and protective of Hillary Clinton than The Atlantic‘s Caitlyn Flanagan. That being said, Goldberg nevertheless admits that:

“In this #MeToo moment, when we’re reassessing decades of male misbehavior and turning open secrets into exposes, we should look clearly at the credible evidence that Juanita Broaddrick told the truth when she accused Clinton of raping her. […]

Of the Clinton accusers, the one who haunts me is Broaddrick. The story she tells about Clinton recalls those we’ve heard about Weinstein. She claimed they had plans to meet in a hotel coffee shop, but at the last minute he asked to come up to her hotel room instead, where he raped her. Five witnesses said she confided in them about the assault right after it happened. It’s true that she denied the rape in an affidavit to Paula Jones’s lawyers, before changing her story when talking to federal investigators. But her explanation, that she didn’t want to go public but couldn’t lie to the F.B.I., makes sense. Put simply, I believe her. […]

It’s fair to conclude that because of Broaddrick’s allegations, Bill Clinton no longer has a place in decent society.

Joe Biden called out men who don’t stop sexual assaults

joe biden and bill clintonTHIS. IS. RICH.

From Yahoo (via Teen Vogue): There’s a whole lot of reasons we love Joe Biden. The former Vice President has stolen our hearts many times over with his compassionate politics. His beautiful friendship with Barack Obama and the memes it created got us through many days. On top of that, he’s been a champion for women for a long while. Lately, he’s been continuing this awesome work with his campaign “It’s On Us”. “It’s On Us” encourages men to step up in preventing sexual assault.

Biden recently sat down for an interview with Teen Vogue to talk more about It’s On Us, and it’s amazing!

There’s so much good in this interview, and it just backs up why Joe Biden is the greatest. First of all, he consulted young women on how to best move forward with the It’s On Us campaign!

It might sound like a no-brainer, but with current politics it’s all too familiar to see decisions that affect women decided by only men. This obviously makes no sense, because if you’re trying to help women, you should listen to women. Biden spoke with thousands of girls in high school and college to figure out how best to combat sexual assault on campuses. Here’s what they told him:

“The overwhelming, spontaneous response without any prompting was, get men involved. Get men involved…that’s when we started the “It’s on Us” campaign, going out to college campuses because bystanders who see something happen, in my view, if they don’t holler, scream, pick up the phone and call and intervene, they are complicitous in the commission of a crime. They are complicitous.”

Biden, as a politician, has given voice to something women have understood about the nature of preventing sexual assault for basically all of human history. You cannot put the pressure on victims to prevent their own assaults.

A lot of the advice people hear about preventing sexual assault is put towards the victims. By calling out male bystanders who see an assault about to take place and do nothing, Biden is putting the pressure to prevent assault in the right place.

Biden pulls no punches when calling out the men who see assaults about to happen and do nothing. He really calls out the men who hear other men perpetuating rape culture, by pointing out that silence will make them complicit. By not speaking up when they hear someone talking about assault, they become complicit. Biden puts it this way:

“Being a man means respecting a woman’s autonomy, not invading a woman’s autonomy. You want to be a strong man? Respect.

Biden also reminds college leadership that they need to step up to prevent campus sexual assault. He acknowledges that colleges might be scared to report the numbers, since it might downgrade their standing. However, he points out that their students’ safety is way more important.

Many colleges act this way, and that’s part of why campus sexual assault is such a widespread problem. Biden puts this into chilling perspective with this quote:

“No father or mother should drop their kid off this late August, early September at their first day at college and drive away worried [if she is] going to be safe.”

We cannot thank Joe Biden enough for being a spokesman for this important campaign. Calling out men who see their friends participate in assault, and college leadership who aren’t doing enough to prevent assault, are steps that need to be taken!

Hillary’s narcissism on display: She blames FBI Director James Comey for her loss

hillary-clinton

Last Saturday, on a call with top campaign donors, Clinton said her campaign was winning until FBI director James Comey sent a letter to Congress on Oct. 28 announcing that the FBI had uncovered emails possibly related to its earlier probe into her use of a private server as secretary of state.

Watch your back Comey...

Watch your back Comey…

According to the Seattle Times, Clinton told the donors that her campaign was leading by large margins in nearly every battleground state and was tied in Arizona, a traditionally Republican stronghold, until Comey released his letter. (Never mind the fact that on October 18, 2016, the hacker(s) Anonymous claims that “a source inside the [Hillary] Clinton campaign has leaked an internal polling document that shows her support is gone”.)

Why do you suppose that the most qualified womyn for president, who has the most impressive record, can’t take responsibility for her own loss? I blame Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). From Wikipedia:

“NPD is a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others’ feelings. People affected by it often spend a lot of time thinking about achieving power or success, or about their appearance. They often take advantage of the people around them.

People with narcissistic personality disorder are characterized by their persistent grandiosity, excessive need for admiration, and a disdain and lack of empathy for others. These individuals often display arrogance, a sense of superiority, and power-seeking behaviors.”

Here’s a look at how Hillary clearly exhibits NPD traits:

Hillary Clinton what difference does it make

Hillary had no empathy for the the parents and families of those murdered in Benghazi. Her “what difference does it make” statement said it all.

erica-garner

Hillary wanted to take advantage of Eric Garner’s family to push an anti-Second Amendment agenda. In late October, WikiLeaks emails exposed that the Clinton campaign had conversations about using Garner’s death to protest gun violence. Garner’s daughter was not happy about the revelation. “I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use’ my dad,” tweeted Erica Garner, as reported by CNN.

hillary-clinton-and-secret-service

Hillary has a disdain for those hired to protect and even take a bullet for her. Former Secret Service agent Dan Emmett describes Mrs. Clinton as treating the Secret Service like hired help, never saying “thank you” to agents, unlike her husband, Bill, and their daughter, Chelsea.

hillary-supporters-crying2

Hillary didn’t care about her devastated supporters. On the night of her election loss, Hillary didn’t even bother to address her supporters. She sent her lackey John Podesta out on stage to give a lame speech to them. They were in tears and she couldn’t even go out and thank them for their support.

clinton-and-her-maid

Hillary’s sense of superiority lends her to believe she is above the law. As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos showed. If any soldier had done what Hillary did, they’d be in Leavenworth.

hillary-clinton-and-war-on-women

In her quest for power, Hillary has no empathy for women who are victims of sexual harassment and assault and who could bring down her husband. She once tweeted that “every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard”.  Unless of course, you are a woman who Bill Clinton loved to prey on. Then those women are just part of the “vast right-wing conspiracy.”

These are just a few of the MANY examples of Hillary’s NPD traits. I could go an and on yet I’m not trying to write a novel here.

Thankfully we dodged a bullet on November 8, 2016. Hillary will not be our president. And for that, according to Hillary, we can thank Comey 🙂

Women – anti-Trumpers – Are Boycotting Ivanka Trump’s Brand

And how many of these womyn boycotting Ivanka have supported Broaddrick, Jones or Wiley? Yeah, didn’t think so.

ivanka-trump

From Cosmopolitan Magazine: Lindsey Ledford, a 29-year-old student at the University of Maryland-University College, is a self-described “Maxxinista” who shops at her local College Park, Maryland, T.J. Maxx at least three times per week. But about a week ago, her favorite store abruptly lost her business: Ledford was checking out a black blouse with a stripe down the center when, suddenly, she felt like her throat was closing and she couldn’t breathe.

 “My first thought was, Grab them by the pussy. We can do anything we want. Don’t even ask,” Ledford told Cosmopolitan.com.

The blouse was triggering traumatic flashbacks to physical abuse she’d suffered in the past, and to times she’d been grabbed or groped by men without her consent. “None of them ever asked how I felt, what I was thinking, or what I wanted. They didn’t wait,” she wrote in a flurry of tweets at T.J. Maxx after fleeing the store. “That is what ‘Trump’ means to me,” she told me: complete disregard for women and their bodies. “It doesn’t matter if Ivanka’s name is in front of it, or Donald’s.”

disregard

Speaking of disregard for women…

Ledford is now one of a passionate group of women joining forces to boycott both the Ivanka Trump fashion and accessories brand and, unless they drop Ivanka’s line from stores, the retailers who carry it. The list includes T.J. Maxx, Amazon.com, Zappos, Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, DSW, Macy’s, Marshall’s, and Saks Off Fifth. “As much as I love shopping at T.J. Maxx, I can’t stomach seeing that name front and center,” she said. “Supporting a brand — Trump — that condones sexual assault and makes excuses for it is wrong.” (Ledford also logged a complaint with a phone call to customer service; she said a rep politely listened and promised to pass along her feedback.)

Shannon Coulter on a mission against Ivanka

The boycott was hatched on Twitter by Shannon Coulter, CEO of a boutique marketing agency in San Francisco, on October 10, in the wake of Trump’s now-infamous Access Hollywood tape; since then, Coulter’s tweets about the boycott, including tweets aimed at the retailers who carry Ivanka Trump products, have earned an estimated 1 million impressions on Twitter, according to her analytics report.

For a long stretch of the campaign, “[women] were ready to give Ivanka a pass because she’s his daughter and it’s hard to be objective about your dad. But the Trump tape just sent people over the edge,” Coulter told me. “I think [women] took particular offense, as I did, to the fact that Ivanka tries to make feminism a part of her brand but is standing by, as an official campaign surrogate, a guy who is an alleged serial sexual assaulter of women. The disconnect was too big. And they were ready to speak up about it and flex their consumer power about it.”

I'm sure this daughter can be objective about her father

A father and daughter who the proggies always give a pass

Though Ivanka insisted this week at a Fortune Most Powerful Women event: “I am not a surrogate. I’m a daughter,” the lines between Ivanka and her father’s incendiary politics have been blurred beyond recognition for some former fans and customers. Ivanka and her eponymous line are “inextricably tied to a movement that denigrates women,” Amy Andelora, a 52-year-old high school teacher in Mesa, Arizona, told me.

Days after the tape’s release, Andelora tweeted a plea to Neiman Marcus, asking the retailer to remove Ivanka’s line. She is also boycotting her favorite store, Nordstrom, where she says she formerly spent “hundreds of dollars per month,” because, similar to Ledford, she felt triggered by a pair of Ivanka shoes.

drama

“It’s a visceral response, when I see the name ‘Ivanka’ nestled inside a shoe,” she said. ”The man who assaulted me used almost exactly the method Donald Trump described in his conversation with Billy Bush. I can’t see a Trump-related label without remembering what happened to me three years ago in a house I couldn’t escape.

Though some customers are defecting, Ivanka Trump’s eponymous line — an estimated $100 million operation in the last fiscal year, according to a July report in Forbes — has thrived in spite of her father Donald Trump’s wildly controversial presidential campaign. (Trump has made damning comments about women, Mexican and Muslim immigrants, and Gold Star families, while Ivanka, an executive vice-president at the Trump Organization, has consistently defended him as a “feminist,” insisting she knows him to be different.) As a private company, the Ivanka Trump brand does not release sales or profit numbers. But an Ivanka Trump brand PR representative told Cosmopolitan.com that sales and revenue grew 37 percent over 2015.

“Over the past year many more women have discovered and become loyal to the brand, leading us to experience a significant year over year revenue growth,” said Abigail Klem, chief brand officer through the representative.

According to annual and quarterly reports by her licensing company GIII, sales at the Ivanka Trump brand grew $29.4 million over last year, and increased $11.8 million in the last six months. “Whether or not people are saying good things or bad things, her name is getting out there,” Madeline Hurley, a retail industry analyst at market research firm IBIS World, said. “She can’t really pay for the press that she’s getting.”

But for some, the fact that Ivanka’s business has appeared to profit from the exposure of the Trump campaign is all the more reason to boycott. “[Ivanka] is supporting one of the most offensive, sexist, racist, xenophobic human beings to ever run for president,” Ledford said. “She is making a buck off it.”

Though Ivanka said at this week’s Fortune event that she’s “always tried to maintain complete separation between [her brand] and the campaign,” Ledford and others point to what they feel is a notable example to the contrary: after introducing her father at the Republican National Convention (in a speech filled with traditionally Democratic policies like equal pay, paid leave and affordable childcare), Ivanka tweeted a Macys.com link to buy the blush-pink shift she was wearing from her collection with the line: “Shop Ivanka’s look from her #RNC speech.”

text

Don’t you DARE inquire as to where to buy this dress…(at least it wasn’t blue!)

“Do I think it’s appropriate for her to tweet out a link to where you can buy the dress that she was wearing? No, definitely not,” said Dini von Mueffling, founder of an eponymous public relations and strategy agency in New York. “Instead of tweeting about her dress, I think the message that she should have put out there was how honored she was to be part of a moment in our nation’s history, and to be part of trying to improve the lives of Americans everywhere.”

Gloria Ratcliffe, once a faithful customer, threw out a pair of Ivanka Trump pumps after another of Ivanka’s high-profile campaign appearances — when she attended the second debate in support of her father, just days after the release of the now-infamous tape. Ratcliffe also decided against buying bridesmaids dresses for her spring wedding from Nordstrom, as well as shoes for the wedding party from DSW, because both carry the Ivanka Trump brand.

Some anti-hate attire for the wedding, perhaps?

Some anti-hate attire for Ratcliffe’s wedding, perhaps?

“My wedding is a day of love. I’m not going to wear clothes that represent hate,” Ratcliffe said. “[Trump] doesn’t respect women at all, and I’m not giving my money to people who are supporting him, because it’s going to inevitably end up in his pocket.” (Ivanka’s line is a sub-brand of the Trump Organization).

So far, none of the retailers who carry the Ivanka Trump brand have dropped the line in response to the boycott. Cosmopolitan.com reached out to 12 retailers; only two replied. A representative for Nordstrom said: “We have received some feedback from customers, though we don’t currently have plans to stop offering this brand.” (When asked about the nature of that feedback, the representative didn’t answer). Zappos declined to comment.

But Coulter and the women boycotting Ivanka’s brand aren’t giving up. Ledford, for instance, is still steering clear of T.J. Maxx: In addition to voting for Hillary Clinton and donating to her campaign, Ledford feels the boycott is another way of taking concrete political action. It’s “something I can do to say ‘enough is enough,’” she says. “I can not give my money to them.”

Coulter continues tweeting, every day, multiple times per day, and calling retailer customer service lines to complain about the Ivanka brand. She says she has received backlash for the boycott on Twitter — some men, in particular, argue that Ivanka shouldn’t be held accountable because they believe she’s being manipulated by PR people or by her father.

“I don’t think that’s true,” Coulter said. “She’s the head of an international, $100 million dollar a year brand. She’s sophisticated. I think she’s smarter than Donald Trump. Part of why I started the boycott is because I respect her as a businesswoman. We should hold her to a higher standard.

And just how many liberal women were triggered by this?

Exit question: How many liberal women were triggered by this fine example of a “higher standard?”

Bill Clinton’s look of guilt

Last Sunday, before the second presidential debate at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, Donald Trump convened a meeting of four of the Clintons’ victims:

  • Juanita Broaddrick, who claims Bill Clinton raped her in April 1978 when she was 35 years old.
  • Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee who sued then  President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment (he reportedly called her to his hotel room, exposed his penis, and ordered her to perform fellatio), which precipitated Clinton’s impeachment in the House of Representatives in 1999. Although Clinton was acquitted, he paid Jones $850,000 in an out-of-court settlement.
  • Kathy Shelton who, when she was 12 years old, was raped by Thomas Alfred Taylor, whose defense attorney was Hillary Clinton, the feminist, who knew full well her client was guilty. In a recording about a decade later, Hillary laughed while recalling her defense of Taylor.
  • Kathleen Willey, a former White House volunteer aide who in 1998, on the TV news program 60 Minutes, claimed that Bill Clinton had sexually assaulted her on November 29, 1993, during his first term as President. Willey was subpoenaed to testify in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case.

Then Trump seated the women in a front row of the debate room.

kathleen-willey-juanita-broaddrick-kathy-shelton-sat-near-him-at-2nd-presidential-debate-10-9-2016

This was the haunted expression on Bill Clinton’s face when he saw the women — the “ghosts of his Christmas past”:

bill-sees-ghosts-of-his-gropper-past

Doesn’t look like Bill has learned from his frightening near-death experience during his quadruple bypass surgery in 2004. As he recounted in an interview on ABC’s Primetime Live, he found himself in a dark hellish place:

“I saw, like, dark masks crushing, like, death masks being crushed, in series, and then I’d see these great circles of light and then, like, Hillary’s picture or Chelsea’s face would appear on the light, and then they’d fly off into the dark.”

Why Trump supporters don’t care that he made a lewd remark about a married woman 11 years ago

It’s all over the MSM.

Yesterday afternoon, NBC News released an audio and some video of Donald Trump in 2005 using vulgar language to describe how he attracts women and his sexual conquests. The recording in question was not actually part of an interview of Trump with Billy Bush of Access Hollywood, but a private conversation between the two on board a bus.

At the time, Trump had been married to Melania for only 3 months.

In the tape, Trump is heard saying, “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab ’em by the p****.”  Trump then described how he had tried to seduce a married woman:

“I moved on her actually, she was down in Palm Beach and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try to f*** her, she was married … and I moved on her very heavily. I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture and I told her ‘I’ll show you where you can get some nice furniture.’ I moved on her like a bitch, and I could not get there, and she was married. And all of a sudden I see her and she’s got the big phony tits, she’s totally changed her look.”

Trump has issued an apology:

“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”

While I’m disgusted by what Trump said 11 years ago, this is blown out of proportion by Hillary’s bitches in the MSM. As Trump said in his apology, Bill Clinton said much worse. Actually, Bill Clinton has done much worse, sexually harassing — exposing his penis to Paula Jones and ordering her to fellate (BJ) him — and raping women, e.g., Juanita Broaddrick, for which he had neither apologized nor even admitted.

And then, there’s Hillary Clinton’s spewing of foul language worse than Trump’s, according to the testimonies of Secret Service agents, all documented in books. See “The filthy mouth of Hillary Clinton“.

Hillary foul-mouth

In response to the MSM’s orgy over Trump’s lewd remarks, this was posted on Facebook which perfectly describes why millions of Americans support Trump. Help make it go viral! (Note: I corrected the Facebook post’s spelling errors.)

“We don’t care if the guy swears… or how many times he’s been married…or who he voted for, or what his income tax return shows. We want the problems fixed. Yes he’s an egomaniac, but we don’t care. We know he’s not a racist, or bad to women, or all the other things the liberal media is trying to label him with. We know he’s raised a good family, and that says a lot about him.

The country is a mess because politicians suck, the Republican Party is two faced & gutless, and illegals are everywhere and Muslims are openly trying to hurt this country and make the civilized world adjust to them. We want it all fixed!

We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he has changed positions, we don’t care that he fights with Megyn Kelly, Rosie O’Donnell, and so many of the elected establishment. We don’t care that Rubio, Ryan, the Bushes, and so many other top old and new Republicans refuse to endorse him for their own selfish reasons, and we know what they are. We don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslim terrorists, we don’t care that he tried some businesses that didn’t work out.

This country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegals, we are becoming a nation of victims, where every Tom, Ricardo and Hasid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in, AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED. And TRUMP is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.

We’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic and Republican Party. We’re angry about the Iran deal, the budget, treatment of Israel, military weakness, lobbyists, special interests, overpaid politicians with their self serving bills and back room deals, trade deals, loss of jobs, manipulated economic numbers, businesses fleeing, and even the phony pay-for-play Clinton Foundation.

Americans are no longer going to be fooled, and the movement is out to change the direction we’re taking. Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn’t have lobbyist money holding him, he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him, and all you know is that he has been very successful, a good negotiator, he has built a lot of things, he’s flexible, and he’s also not a politician. And he says he’ll fix it. And we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.

Public service has become elected greed. This may be our only chance to have a non-politician, despite his flaws, try and correct the mess, at least for 4 years. We must take the shot, because the consequences of putting Hillary Clinton in office are frightening. There is a tidal wave happening, and it’s going to overcome much of what’s happened to this country.”

In response to a challenge from an anti-Trump Republican, former RedState editor-in-chief Erick Erickson, Dilbert-creator Scott Adams sent this hilarious tweet to the redundantly-named Erick Erickson:

scott-adams-to-erick-erickson

This is what Adams said about Trump’s 11-year-old lewd remarks:

I assume that 75% of male heads of state, including our own past presidents, are total dogs in their private lives. Like it or not, Trump is normal in that world. […]

Another rich, famous, tall, handsome married guy once told me that he can literally make-out and get handsy with any woman he wants, whether she is married or not, and she will be happy about it. I doubted his ridiculous claims until I witnessed it three separate times. So don’t assume the women were unwilling. (Has anyone come forward to complain about Trump?) […]

Most men don’t talk like Trump. Most women don’t either. But based on my experience, I’m guessing a solid 20% of both genders say and do shockingly offensive things in private. Keep in mind that Billy Bush wasn’t shocked by it. […]

Trump wasn’t running for Pope. He never claimed moral authority. His proposition has been that he’s an asshole (essentially), but we need an asshole to fight ISIS, ignore lobbyists, and beat up Congress. Does it change anything to have confirmation that he is exactly what you thought he was?

For the rest of Adams’ thoughts on Trump’s 11-year-old lewd remarks, go here.

Hillary Clinton’s website removed promise to ‘believe’ all sexual assault survivors

She probably wiped the web site clean, like with a “cloth.”

hillary-clinton-winking-AP-640x480

From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton’s campaign website removed a pledge to believe all sexual assault victims earlier this year after historic rape allegations against her husband re-emerged.

On January 29, her website’s page on campus sexual assault said victims have ‘a right to be believed, and we’re with you.’ On February 4, that quote was gone.

The alteration came after the re-emergence of 73-year-old Juanita Broaddrick’s claim that Bill Clinton had raped her in 1978 and Hillary had threatened her to keep quiet, BuzzFeed reported Monday.

The Internet Archive Wayback Machine, which stores old versions of webpages for posterity, shows a quote attributed to Hillary Clinton on her site’s campus sex assault page on January 29.

hillary tweet

I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault: Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you.’ But on a version of the page from February 4, that last sentence is completely missing. As of Monday the shorter quote is still on the page.

That change occurred at the same time as Broaddrick’s historic rape allegations – which she had made decades before – were back in the media spotlight, and she herself was tweeting about her claims.

broaddrick tweet

On January 5 Broaddrick tweeted ‘Was dreading seeing my abuser on tv campaign trail for enabler wife……but his physical appearance reflects ghosts of past are catching up.’

clinton2

And on January 6, she said: ‘I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.’ That same day she came out in support of Donald Trump in an interview with The Hill.

Broaddrick, a former nursing home administrator, claims that Bill Clinton, then 31, raped her in 1978, in a hotel where a nursing seminar was being held. She had previously met him while campaigning for him as Arkansas attorney general, and says she had arranged to get coffee with him to talk business. At the last second, she says, he asked if he could meet her in her hotel room, where he bit her lip so hard she bled, raped her on the bed and left.

She also says that she bumped into Hillary Clinton shortly after at a political rally, and that Clinton shook her hand and thanked her for everything she had done. Bill Clinton was ‘the main person that regulated my business and my income,’ Broaddrick told BuzzFeed, and so the remark felt like a threat to her.

The former President denied Broaddrick’s claim through his lawyer in 1999, and has never been charged.

The 73-year-old signed up to Twitter in 2009, but aside from three brief messages about her daily life she remained silent on the website until September 2015.

On the 14th of that month Hillary Clinton tweeted: ‘To every survivor of sexual assault…You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.’ The following day, Broaddrick made her first tweet in six and a half years: ‘Thoroughly disgusting–Hillary’s comments on rape. Shame on you, Hillary, shame on you!!

She then began a twitter campaign to bring her claims back into the spotlight, also making media appearances and performing interviews. The re-emergence of Broaddrick’s claim was joined by those of Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey, both of whom accused him of sexually inappropriate conduct in the 1990s.

In May Clinton was asked in a New Hampshire appearance: ‘You say that all rape victims should be believed, but would you say that about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and/or Paula Jones?’  ‘Well,’ she chuckled, ‘I would say that everybody should be believed at first – until they are disbelieved based on evidence.’
