Bill Clinton: A Reckoning

Feminists saved the 42nd president of the United States in the 1990s. They were on the wrong side of history; is it finally time to make things right?

The most remarkable thing about the current tide of sexual assault and harassment accusations is not their number. If every woman in America started talking about the things that happen during the course of an ordinary female life, it would never end. Nor is it the power of the men involved: History instructs us that for countless men, the ability to possess women sexually is not a spoil of power; it’s the point of power. What’s remarkable is that these women are being believed.

Most of them don’t have police reports or witnesses or physical evidence. Many of them are recounting events that transpired years—sometimes decades—ago. In some cases, their accusations are validated by a vague, carefully couched quasi-admission of guilt; in others they are met with outright denial. It doesn’t matter. We believe them. Moreover, we have finally come to some kind of national consensus about the workplace; it naturally fosters a level of romance and flirtation, but the line between those impulses and the sexual predation of a boss is clear.

New Mexico Democrat Congressional Candidate Arrested AGAIN For Allegedly Stalking Women

His accuser claims that he sent her repeated text messages “suggesting that he was watching her, other messages professing his love for her, and one picture of his genitals.”

Police arrested a Democratic congressional candidate on stalking charges after a woman accused him of watching her, following her, and sending her pictures of his genitals.

Authorities arrested David Alcon on Friday at an apartment complex in Albuquerque nearly two weeks after an arrest warrant was issued for him on October 30 in Santa Fe, KRQE News 13 reported.

Alcon, who was running for New Mexico’s open District 2 Congressional Seat, is accused of stalking a woman attending a Halloween party on October 28.

His accuser claims that he sent her repeated text messages “suggesting that he was watching her, other messages professing his love for her, and one picture of his genitals.” Later that night, he allegedly began texting her that he was outside of her apartment.

Police arrested Alcon in Albuquerque after they were called to an apartment complex late on Friday afternoon. The Albuquerque Police Department did not give details on what happened when they arrived on scene – only that they took Alcon into custody.

Political Stockholm Syndrome | Rev. C.L. Bryant and Stefan Molyneux (Video)

C.L. Bryant joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss the trajectory of the black community, trading freedom to comfort, the dangers of fatherlessness and a unique perspective on political Stockholm syndrome.

Donna Brazile: Clinton Campaign ‘Was a Cult’ (Video)

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile called Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign “a cult.”

SCARBOROUGH: Bottom line it for us. Why did they lose? Was it, at the end of the day, arrogance?

BRAZILE: Yes, Joe. It was a cult, I felt like it was a cult. You could not penetrate them. I mean, I — look, you can — I’m a grassroot organizer. I know street politics better than I know suite politics. I know how to touch people where they live, work, pray, and play. But I cannot help a candidate, Joe, if I don’t have the resources, if I cannot spend the resources that the party is raising because there’s a blind agreement between —

BRZEZINSKI: Exactly—

BRAZILE: A campaign—

BRZEZINSKI: Unspoken even—

BRAZILE: And, again, I want my party to come back from this stronger. I like what Tom Perez is doing. I know he said this is not about my book. Baby, I know it’s not about my book. But it’s about making much-needed changes and reform inside the party. I’ve sat at the table. I want to make room for others to sit at the table, but you have to come into the room knowing you have to change the recipe. Yesterday was a wake-up call for the Democrats, too. Because you know what? It’s coming from the bottom up. It’s not top-down anymore. It’s bottom-up politics now.

Democrat Doug Schoen: ‘My Party Is Rotten to the Core’ (Video)

Between this, the Uranium One deal, and other scandals surrounding the Clintons, Schoen says “we need a special counsel to look at Secretary Clinton and her campaign and her activities as we are Donald Trump. We need to clean up our system.”

During an appearance on “Hannity” Friday, Democrat and political analyst Doug Schoen said his Party is “rotten to the core.”

This was in response to last week’s revelations of a funding agreement between 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee that may have tipped the scales in Clinton’s favor.

Schoen had once worked for the Clintons over the years.

Jerry Brown and the state Democrats’ legacy is crime and homelessness

Mass release of criminals combined with the decriminalization of petty crime has led to encampments full of the desperate and dangerous. This mess is so bad that the Santa Ana River is now known by local residents as “Skid River.”

There’s not much the state of California does efficiently. If you need to get your license plates in the mail, want your tax refund, or God forbid need Sacramento to fix a clerical error, you need the patience of a saint — the bureaucrats will do things in their own sweet time, whether you like it or not.

But when it comes to the wholesale emptying of the prisons, they’re Johnny-on-the-spot.

Whether it’s Assembly Bill 109, Proposition 47 or Proposition 57, Gov. Jerry Brown and the Democrat-controlled state Legislature seemingly can’t put violent criminals on the streets fast enough.

Just think of them as being the O.J. Simpson jury with term limits.

Recently, I wrote a column about Senate Bill 620 — which would strip mandatory sentencing enhancements for criminals convicted of committing a felony with a gun — and noted that legislation like this has resulted in a ballooning crime rate and homeless population.

I made this claim based on various conversations I’ve had with local law enforcement, city officials and litigators, but was having a tough time finding hard data.

And as it turns out, I’m not the only one.

L.A. Marches Against Trump — Where’s the March Against Sexual Abuse in Hollywood?

Tens of thousands of protesters are expected to gather in downtown Los Angeles and around the country Saturday for a march against President Donald Trump. But there has yet to be any kind of public demonstration against sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood, several weeks into a scandal that has implicated some of L.A.’s most powerful personalities — many of whom are also among the Democratic Party’s biggest backers.

Ironically, Hollywood has made way for the anti-Trump protest, with local authorities suspending film production in downtown L.A. for two days as police focus on the demonstration, according to Deadline.

The demonstrations in L.A. and nationwide are being organized by a group called Refuse Fascism, which is loosely aligned with Antifa. Refuse Fascism has defended Antifa’s use of violence, calling it self-defense against violence from the far right.

In a blog post last week justifying Saturday’s protest, RefuseFascism.org proclaimed: “We are right to do this. For the survival of millions of people around the world, we must do this. For the rights of women to determine the course of their own lives, we must do this. For a future on this planet for all of our children, we must do this.”

And yet nothing is being done to protest on behalf of women, and even children, victimized by Hollywood superstars.

The leftists marching in Los Angeles have not marched against Hollywood studio heads, “A-list” stars, and media companies who are among 63 accused of misconduct thus far.

They have not marched against Harvey Weinstein, against whom a New York Police Department detective reportedly says there is enough evidence for an arrest.

Gregg Jarrett: Hillary Clinton’s scheme in ‘rigging’ the nomination may have been criminal (Video)

According to Brazile, the DNC went broke under the leadership of Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This dire circumstance presented a perfect scenario for Clinton to seize command of the party apparatus by paying off its debt of roughly $20 million dollars. But in exchange, the DNC executed a written, albeit hidden, agreement transferring to Clinton the committee’s finances, strategy, and money raised — all to the benefit of Clinton and to the detriment of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, her primary opponent.

Hillary Clinton has spent a year crying about how the presidency was stolen from her. Turns out, she stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders.

The stunning revelation from former Democratic National Committee interim chairperson Donna Brazile that Clinton secretly rigged the primary process by commandeering the DNC should come as no surprise to anyone. Clinton is nothing, if not unethical and corrupt. She always has been. This is precisely why pre-election polls consistently showed that a majority of Americans found her dishonest and untrustworthy.

The critical question now is whether she committed crimes in her theft of the nomination.

The Scheme

According to Brazile, the DNC went broke under the leadership of Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This dire circumstance presented a perfect scenario for Clinton to seize command of the party apparatus by paying off its debt of roughly $20 million dollars.

Rep. DeSantis: ‘We Know Now Without a Shadow of a Doubt’ Hillary and Democrats Colluded with Russia (Audio)

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Thursday regarding a proposed Mueller amendment to limit the special counsel investigation to between March 2015 and the present, and also tax reform in the House.

“We know now without a shadow of a doubt that the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, paid Fusion GPS and Steele to acquire this dossier, which required colluding with Russian operatives and Russian nationals. So, they produced this dossier and I believe, yesterday I called for the FBI, the Justice Department to declassify all the FISA applications involving Trump associates because what I think happened is, I think they used the information from this dossier to be able to get surveillance on Trump and his associates.”

“And then the fruits of that,” he continued, “formed the basis of what had been leaked to the press over the first three or four months of Trump’s White House.”

DeSantis also discussed the Uranium One scandal and the pending tax reform bill in detail. The full audio is available below.
