Mrs. Bill Clinton Says Harvey Weinstein-Type Behavior ‘Can’t be Tolerated Anywhere’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was first lady to President Bill Clinton, told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in an interview broadcast yesterday that the sort of behavior the movie magnate Harvey Weinstein engaged in “can’t be tolerated anywhere.” [snip]

Here is the transcript of an excerpt of Zakaria’s interview with Clinton:

Fareed Zakaria: “What was your reaction when you heard the news about Harvey Weinstein?”

Hillary Clinton: “I was just sick. I was shocked. I was appalled. It was something that was just intolerable in every way. And, you know, like so many people who have come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.”

Zakaria: “Would you have called him a friend?”

Clinton: “Yes, I probably would have and so with so many others. You know, people in Democratic politics for a couple of decades appreciated his help and support. And I think these stories coming to light now and people who never spoke out before, having the courage to speak out just clearly demonstrates that this behavior that he engaged in cannot be tolerated and cannot be overlooked. And I’m hoping that the—“

Zakaria: “Do you think it was tolerated because he was powerful?”

Clinton: “I don’t know.”

Zakaria: “A lot of people say people knew.”

Clinton: “Well, I certainly didn’t and I don’t know who did. But I can only speak for myself and I think speak for many others who knew him primarily through politics. But the courage of these women coming forward now is really important because it can’t just end with one person’s disgraceful behavior and the consequence that he is now facing. This has to be a wake-up call and shine a bright spotlight on anything like this behavior anywhere at any time.

“We’ve had a series of revelations about companies in Silicon Valley, you know, just sexual harassment and sexual assault being kind of accepted. That’s the cutting edge of our economy. That’s where a lot of young people have their first or most significant jobs.

“This can’t be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s entertainment or tech or anywhere.”

Zakaria: “Senator Blumenthal says that people should give back the money that he donated to them. He donated money to you directly and indirectly. Would you give the money back?”

Clinton: “Well, there’s no one to give it back to. What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying is they’re going to donate it to charity. And, of course, I do that. I give 10 percent of my income to charity every year. This will be part of that. There’s no doubt about it.”

Why not? There isn’t a thing in the Constitution stating that one needs a permit to own or carry a gun. But journalists believe that the Second Amendment needs all sorts of controls. Why not the First Amendment too.

Lawmaker proposing media permits to show how unfair gun permits are

Lawmaker proposing media permits to show how unfair gun permits are

 A lawmaker in Indiana is proposing that the media be required to apply for a ‘journalism license.’

Indiana State Rep. Jim Lucas (R) proposed that journalists should meet the same requirements as gun owners, who have concealed carry permits, and drafted a bill that would mandate a license to practice it.“If you’re OK licensing my Second Amendment right, what’s wrong with licensing your First Amendment right?” Lucas told the IndyStar.

His bill would require that journalists apply for their license with the state police. The application process would cost $75, and each reporter would be fingerprinted. The lawmaker’s bill would reject journalists, who have a felony or domestic battery conviction.

The Indiana lawmaker equates the need for the media permit with the obligation for gun holders to have concealed carry licenses. Lucas has been a staunch opponent to gun permits and fees, but says that the media contributes to the negative stereotypes associated with gun laws. He thinks if gun owners are required to have permits, then the media should be held to the same standard saying that journalists play a significant role in the negative stigma associated with firearms.

“If I was as irresponsible with my handgun as the media has been with their keyboard, I’d probably be in jail,” he said.

Rep. Lucas, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, has been vocally against the state’s permit laws. To Lucas, Americans have a constitutional right to carry that should not require a permit.

Cynically, the lawmaker wants journalists to abide by the same rules that gun holders do to emphasize the inappropriateness of permit requirements. [snip]

Obama’s hero,Bergdahl and parents wee invited to White House.

Army Sgt. Bergdahl pleading guilty to desertion, misbehavior

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told a military judge on Monday that he’s pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

“I understand that leaving was against the law,” said Bergdahl, whose decision to walk off his remote post in Afghanistan in 2009 prompted intense search and recovery missions, during which some of his comrades were seriously wounded.

“At the time, I had no intention of causing search and recovery operations,” Bergdahl said, but he added that now he does understand that his decision prompted efforts to find him.

Bergdahl, 31, is accused of endangering his comrades by abandoning his post without authorization. He told a general after his release from five years in enemy hands that he did it with the intention of reaching other commanders and drawing attention to what he saw as problems with his unit. [snip]

This indicates that they did not reach a deal to limit his punishment, and that he may be hoping for leniency from the judge, Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance. The misbehavior charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, while the desertion charge is punishable by up to five years. [snip]

Just what we need in Congress. There are enough mental defectives sitting in chairs in DC now without another running for a space. Call he Men in Black!

Miami politician says aliens took her on a spaceship. Now she’s running for Congress.

Florida has a U.S. senator who once flew aboard the Space Shuttle.

A congressional candidate from Miami can go one better: Bettina Rodriguez Aguilera says she’s been aboard a spaceship too. But this one was crewed by aliens. As in extraterrestrials.

Three blond, big-bodied beings — two females, one male — visited her when she was 7 years old and have communicated telepathically with her several times in her life, she says. (Sen. Bill Nelson served as payload officer aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1986. All seven people aboard were from Earth. As far as is known.)

Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, a Republican who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, recounted her experience with the ETs during a 2009 television interview.

She described “going up” inside the spaceship — though whether it went into space or just hovered around town was left unclear.

“I went in. There were some round seats that were there, and some quartz rocks that controlled the ship — not like airplanes,” Rodriguez Aguilera said.

In two separate videos posted to YouTube years ago, one by local Spanish-language station America TeVe and another by a political critic with the user name DoralGirl26, Rodriguez Aguilera spoke on television in detail about her extraterrestrial experiences. She said the alien beings reminded her of the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, with arms outstretched.

Among the things she said she found out from the aliens:

  • There are 30,000 skulls — “different from humans” — in a cave in the Mediterranean island of Malta.
  • The world’s “energy center” is in Africa.
  • The Coral Castle, a limestone tourist attraction South Miami-Dade, is actually an ancient Egyptian pyramid.
  • “God is a universal energy.”

She also said that the aliens had mentioned Isis, though she didn’t clarify if they meant the terrorist organization or the ancient Egyptian goddess.

Idiot’s Corner

Teardrops falling like rain… now since Weiner has to face some serious time. This critter is a disgrace but typical of the Donkey Party; remorse only after they get caught.

Anthony Weiner gets hard time

Anthony Weiner got a stiff dose of reality Monday as a judge slapped him with a nearly two-year sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl — a heinous crime that cost him both his marriage and his freedom.

Manhattan federal Judge Denise Cote rejected defense pleas to spare Weiner any time behind bars and instead ordered him to spend 21 months in a federal penitentiary, saying she needed to make an example of the high-profile pervert.

Weiner, who had faced up to ten years in prison, hung his head in shame, covered his face and cried silently into his hands.

 He broke down a second time at the end of the hearing, as his lawyers tried to comfort him by patting his back. His mom, Frances, wept in the gallery, where she sat with Weiner’s dad, Morton, and his brother, Jason.

Weiner didn’t stop crying until after court officers had cleared the room.

Weiner, 53, had begged the judge for probation so he could continue recovering from his longtime sex addiction and “be a good father to my son.”

The serial sexter struggled with his emotions as soon as he started reading a prepared statement in which he described reaching a new low by getting involved online with the underage North Carolina teen.

According to the feds, Weiner sent her “adult pornography” and repeatedly convinced her to strip naked and fondle herself while he watched via Skype and Snapchat in February and March 2016. [snip]

“I was a very sick man for a very long time, but I’m also responsible for the damage I have done. Your Honor, I have a disease, but I have no excuse.”

Weiner said he was “profoundly sorry to the victim” and obliquely referenced the previous sexting scandals that forced him from Congress in 2011 and torpedoed his 2013 comeback bid for New York City mayor. [snip]

Since when is being a pervert a disease?
Right after being a drunk became a disease.
Yup, the disease of victimhood, this allows one to wander the streets in sackcloth and ashes beating you head with a board while wailing “I’m a victim, help me.”

Next he’ll want a trophy for confessing.

Doing the jobs Americans won’t do

How often have the Liberals offered up this as a reason why America needs open borders and unfettered immigration. Is this one of those jobs you, as an American, won’t take?

Two Illegal Aliens Raped a 14-Year-Old Girl In a Maryland High School Bathroom

Two illegal aliens raped a 14-year-old girl in the bathroom of a D.C.-area high school last Thursday, just months after arriving in the country unlawfully and enrolling in classes.

Blood pressure high, yet? There’s more.

According to the Washington Times, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez and 17-year-old Jose Montano lured the girl into the bathroom and asked her for sex. When she refused, the boys took turns holding the girl down and sexually assaulting her in the bathroom of Rockville High School, located in Montgomery County, Maryland, just a few miles outside of Washington, D.C. and the nation’s immigration headquarters.

After finally escaping the bathroom, the girl immediately reported the incident to a faculty member. Both guys were arrested at the school that same day and charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offenses. Montano, technically still a minor, is being charged as an adult.

In a report following their first hearing on Friday, the Washington Post stated that the Guatemalan-born Sanchez has only been in the country about seven months, and is the subject of a pending “alien removal” case.

 The Post noted that immigration officials refused to disclose Montano’s immigration status because he’s a minor; however, he came into the country from El Salvador only about eight months ago. You can connect the dots.

Here’s the real kicker – both of these guys, at 17 and 18 years old, were placed in the ninth grade after arriving in the United States — also known as the grade most 14-year-olds are enrolled in.

According to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, more than 153,000 illegal alien kids have been released to “sponsors” living in the United States since the start of FY2014. Of those, 3,286 were placed in Montgomery County.

Fortunately, Judge Eugene Wolfe refused to grant bond to these guys last Friday, and the two rapists will remain in prison until their trial.

Unfortunately, this young girl gets to live the rest of her life with the memory of being raped in the bathroom stall of a government-funded building by two guys who shouldn’t have even been here.

This is going to be very confusing.
In which bathroom did this assault take place? Were these unisex bathrooms? Or did the males suddenly undergo instant gender identification conversion allowing entrance to the female bathroom. Because of this ID mixup, was this considered a lesbian encounter?

In Progressive States (MD is one), a form either affirming or denying consent is usually required.
Is she racially discriminating against these males because of origin? If the assailants were white, would she have objected to the advances? Has she exhibited racial bias in the past?

If you dear readers, think I’m bulls#!ting with these questions, wait until you hear what the defense lawyers bring up in court. If the lawyers can shop the court for a liberal judge (in that area, a good chance of getting one) that trial will become a circus for the immigration agenda and every kinky educational idea the Left wants to insert in the schools.
She’ll be sacrificed for the greater advancement of the Progressive agenda.

Black Friday shopping ‘spree’

Nothing enlivens A Black Friday shopping trip like a shooting.Some beatings, a stabbing or two and of course screaming and cursing helps to round out one’s day of visiting a ‘maul’. the previous post to a WAG about the day’s shopping, before the news broke about the shooting.

At least one person is shot at a shopping mall in Chattanooga as Black Friday is blighted by violence and clashes with people fighting over everything from TVs to $1.60 towels

Another person has been shot during Black Friday madness, as people turned violent across the country during the record-breaking sales day.

The latest shooting took place at a mall in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where chaos broke out about 4pm. People were told to evacuate the Hamilton Place Mall after at least one victim was rushed away in an ambulance, WTVC reports.

The shooting reportedly took place outside of a Sears store.

Hamilton Place Mall tweeted a statement shortly after 4:30pm.

‘We are aware of an incident at the mall and are working closely with local law enforcement as they continue their investigation,’ the statement read. [snip]

As shops opened back up again on Friday morning:

  • A man was shot dead and his brother was wounded at a Macy’s store in New Jersey during an early morning shooting on Friday
  • A person was shot dead in a road rage incident in a Walmart parking lot in Reno, Nevada on Thursday night
  • A man suffered a gunshot wound after shots were fired in Memphis, Tennessee on Thursday around 11.15pm
  • Video emerged showing people fighting over everything, including towels worth just $1.60

One has to believe that if you are going to fight,it should be over something worthwhile. Do towels fall into that category?

Walmart shoppers fight over towels, toys at Black Friday sale

Some stores are starting Black Friday sales early, and that means that pandemonium is starting earlier, too.

Video from a Walmart in Bainbridge, Georgia shows shoppers fighting to grab every last towel from the display.

Multiple women stacked up as many towels as they could before they were gone.

When given the signal, shoppers began grabbing the large boxes as quickly as they could, with one man digging for the bottom box and nearly losing his pants.

He repeatedly threw elbows and slaps, and fought off another man trying to grab the box, before another tried to claim it, too. [snip]

Clothes Call

Hillary Outfit

Okay, there are many more serious issues than whatever Hillary’s nightmare outfit du jour is, but she really outdid herself with the screamingly hideous ensemble she recently wore to a liberal fundraising event hosted by Cher.

Speculation has run rampant on what the heck her garment even is: a grill cover? Oven mitt? Hospital scrubs designed by Jackson Pollock? The EEG readouts of her brainwaves while having a seizure? Nobody really knows. But one thing is known: the hideous garment was expensive – said to be costing over $12,000. Which doesn’t really suggest that Clinton is the very best person we could have making economic decisions for the nation.

Seriously, Hillary’s jacket looks as if it were specifically designed for people who plan to shoplift hams, or perhaps want to conceal a colostomy bag and a flak jacket. Which, in fairness, isn’t a bad idea considering that Hillary is a target for Bosnian snipers when and where they’re least expected.

What was expected at the event actually happened: lots of money changing hands (presumably from those too busy to actually schedule a meeting at the Clinton Foundation) and unsubtle political rhetoric.

Cher, whose last hit (recorded on cylinder by Thomas Edison) was, appropriately enough, “Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves,” regaled her wealthy cronies with the trenchant insight that Donald Trump is a Nazi. An idea which Hillary Clinton disagrees with to the extent that her most recent campaign commercial suggests he’s a Nazi and a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

Accusations even less subtle and more ugly than Hillary’s fashion sense. And that’s no small accomplishment.

Cognitive dissonance

Anyone with their feet touching the ground know that the media collectively have stripped some teeth off their gears. We get the same pap served up night after night, with the expectation that the cant will be believed and the narrative spread as gospel.

The State Owned Media attempts to keep Hillary’s medical condition hidden from view. She travels with a medical SWAT team in case she strokes out at the podium. Who knows how long she has to go before the top of her head blows off. If she had won the election, the doctors will have her resting. the Oval Office photos will look like this.In the Oval Office Just what we need to present to the World especially after this current occupant.
