From Jammie Wearing Fools:

Andrea Ramsey, a Democratic candidate for Congress, will drop out of the race after the Kansas City Star asked her about accusations in a 2005 lawsuit that she sexually harassed and retaliated against a male subordinate who said he had rejected her advances.

Multiple sources with knowledge of the case told The Star that the man reached a settlement with LabOne, the company where Ramsey was executive vice president of human resources. Court documents show that the man, Gary Funkhouser, and LabOne agreed to dismiss the case permanently after mediation in 2006.

Ramsey, a 56-year-old retired business executive from Leawood, was one of the Democratic candidates vying to challenge Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder in 2018 in Kansas’ 3rd District.

She was running with the endorsement of Emily’s List, a liberal women’s group that has raised more than a half-million dollars to help female candidates who support abortion rights.

Ramsey will drop out on Friday, her campaign said.

“In its rush to claim the high ground in our roiling national conversation about harassment, the Democratic Party has implemented a zero tolerance standard,” Ramsey said in a statement Friday. “For me, that means a vindictive, terminated employee’s false allegations are enough for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to decide not to support our promising campaign. We are in a national moment where rough justice stands in place of careful analysis, nuance and due process.”

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which has not endorsed anyone in the race, said in a statement that members and candidates must all be held to the highest standard.

“If anyone is guilty of sexual harassment or sexual assault, that person should not hold public office,” said committee spokeswoman Meredith Kelly.

Emily’s List said in a statement on Friday that the group supported Ramsey’s decision to drop out of the race and wished her well.

Ramsey was not a party to the lawsuit or the settlement, although she’s referred to throughout the complaint as Andrea Thomas, her name before she married her husband in late 2006. She denied the allegations to the Star in two interviews over the last two weeks and said the lawsuit is surfacing now for political purposes.

See JWF for more and reax.

It is a political feeding frenzy.  Emily’s List gets caught in the crossfire.  Eric, please pass the popcorn.

How far are we willing to go and what price will be be willing to pay in order to criminalize biology?  Film at Eleven.

President Donald Trump has achieved results.  Climate science whores move to France, from Watts Up with That:

French government broadcaster France24 claims President Macron’s offer of fifty grants is luring climate scientists away from the US to work in France.

[…]

If France is happy to step into the breach, who are we to argue? The French people set their own priorities. I’m glad US climate scientists on the brink of losing their funding have other options.

US climate scientists worried about their financial future should accept the generous French offer before the offer is withdrawn, or the French grant quota is filled.

France has become to climate whores what San Francisco is to the homeless, to wit a magnet.  Or in Watergate parlance, follow the money Has anybody in France made any discovery in science since Louis Pastuer?

From Black Man Thinkin’…

The reason some of us ain’t trippin’ about the demise of so-called “Net Neutrality”…

We remember what it was like when AT&T was the only long-distance phone game in town – ANY TOWN – and were brash enough to run ads in which they would guilt folks into using their EXPENSIVE service by TELLING you, “Call your mother”.

The Chicken Littles were out in force then as well, wondering “WHAT WE GON’ DO WITHOUT MA BELL?”

Try:

• Pagers/Beepers
• Cell Phones
• Switching and the WWW
• Routing and the continuing Internet Explosion
• Electronic Audio, Video, & Financial Services
• FREE Social Media
• etc., etc., etc.

The government made telecommunications safe for innovation back in the ’80’s and “evil” CAPITALISM did the rest.

You got more stuff than you can use & you get more powerful and less expensive stuff every year… and nobody’s trynta limit their out-of-state calls to 3 minutes because of the cost.

I’ve seen the panic movie before, I know how it ends; miss me with net neutrality angst…

(Nod)

Absolutely correct.

It demonstrates clearly that when government shrinks Freedom grows.

It’s long past time to get the government out of the Telecommunications business, out of the health care business, out of the transportation business, out of the education business, and a great deal more.

It always amazes me when I see the left complaining about governmental failures in these areas and yet their solution is to give the government more responsibilities in those areas.

From Puffington Post:

Dennis Rodman opened up about his bizarre friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Late Show.”

The NBA Hall of Famer told host Stephen Colbert that his despotic pal was more than likely unhinged, but claimed not to have seen that side of him during their multiple meetings over the last four years.

“It’s funny though that I don’t see how people can sit there and say this person a ‘madman,’” said Rodman

“It’s funny though that I don’t see how people can sit there and say this person a ‘madman,’” said Rodman.

Bless your heart Dennis, you don’t say.  Ah the perils of amateur diplomacy.  Jimmy Carter take note.

Let’s do a little examination here and see if we can learn something from recent history, shall we?

Given this long history of voter fraud attached to the Democrat Party is it outside the realm of reason to ask if the same thing didn’t happen in Alabama this week?

Are we really expected to believe that with so much on the line the Democrats were not going to pull the same trick they tried to pull for Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama?

Hey, David… Did you see this?

Sounds to me sounds to me like it’ll be interesting reading….

We just endured the senate race with Democrats screaming about how their opponent was a pedophile.

And yet, look at what two New York Democratic Senators supported while that was going on…

A snowshoe racer from India who got a visa after Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand pulled some strings was being held Friday in an upstate jail on a sex charge.

The US embassy in New Delhi rejected Tanveer Hussain’s application for a visa so he could compete in the World Snowshoe Championship last month, Fox News reported.

Local officials then appealed for help to Schumer and Gillibrand, and their offices reached out to the New Delhi embassy, which let Hussain successfully reapply for a visa…

Does anyone suppose that there is the faintest hope that this guy is going to vote for anyone but a Democrat?

Here we have as solidindication as you’re going to get that the government has gotten far beyond control…

From the New York Post:

It has long been debated whether sexual orientation is a result of a person’s biology or is determined by environmental factors and outside influences.

A new study in the US could bring experts a step closer to proving that homosexuality is rooted in a person’s DNA.

Research undertaken by North Shore University in Illinois claims to have discovered genetic markers that indicate whether or not a person is gay.

Two points, one,  what debate?  We have been told over and over the sexuality is decided at birth. It is therefore settled science that homosexuality can not be genetic.

Two, if this report were to believed to be true, the Supreme Court would immediately outlaw abortion.

Lots of Articles floating around about this, but I think we should rely on the more reliable news sources, which have been invariably the Brits of late excluding the BBC… But even here they manage to make it about Donald Trump.

A Bangladeshi national in his 20s has been taken into custody with serious injuries after a pipe bomb he was carrying malfunctioned and exploded prematurely inside a Midtown Manhattan subway station Monday morning.

It was the second time in two months that New York City was the target of a terrorist attack, and the first since President Trump sparked Muslim outrage around the world last week by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The fact of the matter is that this had nothing to do with that. Even absent our recognition of reality, we’d still be getting hit by these animals. I mean, isn’t it blatantly obvious that we’ve been getting hit all along while we put off the resolution to recognize the real capital of Israel for over 20 years?

The article in question is nothing but a cheap shot.

And here’s our hero, writhing in pain as a result of his own handiwork. Last report he was at Bellevue with what the doctor is called life-threatening injuries.

Meanwhile observe the leftist powers-that-be in New York City…

Speaking from the scene, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo acknowledged that New York City is “an international target,” but said terrorists will not win, 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reported.

Actually, Little Andy, they’ve already won. That’s how they got here. And guess who’s responsible for that?

And finally we keep getting told that this is not who Muslims are. my question would be where they keep finding all these Irish Buddhists to explode bombs in public places?

Let me get this.  Two democrat senators who caucus with Al Franken  want President Donald Trump to resign over allegation, from CNN:

Two Democratic senators called for President Donald Trump’s resignation over the weekend, citing the multiple accusations from women of sexual harassment and assault against him.

Sens. Cory Booker and Jeff Merkley both voiced the sentiment.

In an interview with Vice after a campaign rally for Democratic Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones, Booker said, “I just watched Sen. Al Franken do the honorable thing and resign from his office. My question is, why isn’t Donald Trump doing the same thing — who has more serious allegations against him, with more women who have come forward. The fact pattern on him is far more damning than the fact pattern on Al Franken.”

Senator Al Franken is has sexually groped women and has not resigned from the Senate. Former Vice President Joe Biden groped women in public, and never resigned. Former President B.J. Clinton is a committed perjury, and rape, and never resigned Brooker and Merkley need to get their own house in order before they make demands on anybody else.

What Brooker and Merkley propose is nothing more than a Gloria Allred Rule, or Anita Hill, rule. whereas any republican has to resigned based on any allegation by any aggrieved liberal.   No thanks.

One Lara Witt describes herself, from everyday feminism:

As a queer femme of color, I keep close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia, and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political.

Ms Witts misses a few apt descriptions of herself: sexist, racist, bullheaded and igorant. She has kindly provided her “10 Things Every Intersectional Feminist Should Ask On a First Date.”    Suffice to say, Ms Witts’  list does not read like a guide to dating but demands to be made in the course of job interview, editor of some left wing rag perhaps?

Witt:

7. Do you think capitalism is exploitative?

Anti-capitalism, especially in the U.S., is imperative if you have an understanding of systemic racism, the prison industrial complex, the 13th Amendment, and exploitation. Capitalism, for one, teaches us that we are only valuable if we produce capital. That means that if you aren’t contributing to the system with your labor, your life means almost nothing.

If your date says they’re anti-fascist and part of the resistance but they’re cool with exploiting labor from communities of color and they support the school to prison pipeline, then there’s a good chance they’ll only value you for your ability to nurture them without any reciprocation.

Does Ms Witt eat?  If she does not grow her own food, how does she propose to compensate the farmers for the fruits of their labor?  In fact one of the few accomplishment of socialists have been the near universal grinding poverty and starvation.  Is she aware their is but one fat man in North Korea, Kim Jung-Un?

More, Witt:

9. Do you support Muslim Americans and non-Muslim people from Islamic countries?

I can’t think of any other religion which has been vilified and lied about more than Islam in a cultural and systemic way. I am not Muslim, so I will stay in my lane, but I cannot imagine for a second even claiming to be a feminist if I didn’t stand in solidarity with my Muslim friends and family — especially now, especially after 9/11.

Muslims are noted for a few things, tolerance of homosexuals and homosexuality are not among them.  The Muslim treatment of homosexuality depends on whether they first find a rope or a pile of stones.  I doubt that Ms. Witt plans on immigrating to Muslim majority country, or even to Dearbornistan.  My personal desire to admit any Muslims to our country is about equal to the advisability of Ms Witt moving to one.

Letter to President of ABC News – Media Manipulation

President, ABC News

Re: Brian Ross manipulation of the media

Brian Ross’s latest journalistic mistake relating to Michael Flynn and the Trump Administration proves that he does not have the credibility or the judgment to continue to serve as the chief correspondent for ABC News. In 2012 before the HSBC Bank deferred prosecution agreement I interviewed with Brian Ross for a 1 hour special to air immediately. I will never forget Brian Ross shaking my hand in his office saying “it will air in two weeks.” Brian Ross never aired the tape as a strategic blocking tactic preventing CNN and 60 minutes to broadcast similar stories. I have proven to be more credible than Brian Ross; therefore, ABC news should have the journalistic integrity by airing the interview that would provide American’s the still new, relevant, and never before heard information. Why protect a bank and its executives that finance our enemies? Is it because former FBI Director James Comey used to sit on HSBC’s board? Do you not want to air that maybe the FBI didn’t shut down or prosecute HSBC Bank for financing terror was because James Comey was the head of the FBI? The largest money laundering and terrorist financing banking scandal in U.S. History and no FBI prosecutions? Is ABC news withholding information intentionally? Why not provide a real news story instead of a fake one like on Flynn?

Justice is the guardian of our freedom and the media through freedom of the press begins the process of justice. The American political system must function, so all American’s are being justly represented in Washington by their elected officials. Members of Congress are supposed to act on behalf of their informed constituents, but the process breaks down when American’s are not informed accurately by the press. The United States Constitution engrains Freedom of the Press as an absolute because of the importance of a well-informed public. American citizens must have the power to apply pressure to their representatives in government.

As the HSBC whistleblower, it saddens me that most American’s do not know HSBC Bank exists. The American public does not know about how HSBC Bank continues to put Americans in coffins all for a profit. Worse, HSBC bank was found guilty of the charge of Financing the Enemy from their operations on American soil. The amount of terrorist financing and criminal activities I witnessed at HSBC still keeps me up at night because I know it is continuing. In the interview with Brian Ross and ABC News, I explained precisely how billions of dollars of terrorist funds are intentionally wired to terrorists in OFAC sanctioned countries. I further told how HSBC Bank is responsible for killing Americans and designed a long-term system to defraud the U.S. Government. Brian and I also discussed how the FBI led by James Comey was taking NO action. The American public never became outraged because they never got the chance even to become aware of a significant national security issue. The American people would never have allowed for a “deferred prosecution agreement” if they knew of the facts mentioned above. The ABC news story would and still can give the average American a chance to understand what is happening in an HSBC banking center operating out of a former shopping mall in New Castle, DE. The ABC News story would have delivered the story to a much more comprehensive audience than the smaller previous stories issued.

Do you believe that if the American public knew and understood what is happening at HSBC Bank that the American people would allow it to continue? I ran for U.S. Senate in 2016, and I was shocked when my opponent Senator Pat Toomey (sits on the Senate Banking Committee) was taking campaign donations from a PAC that HSBC Bank formed to buy Senators; hence the bank’s get out of jail free card. I have a proven track record of fighting for what is right, uncovering the truth, and promoting justice. The big question I have is “Why is ABC news withholding a key interview relating to national security that could save American lives, but then issues a false report on the Trump Administration?

Sincerely,

Everett A. Stern, M.B.A.

For the last 60 years the Democrats have been telling us that morality didn’t matter, that it was a personal choice.

Now suddenly they consider themselves to be the Arbiter of everything moral?

Almost like they’re doing this at a political need.

And I suspect and I suppose that when Roy Moore wins his election all of this will magically disappear… And we will be back to hearing about how Islam allowing 9 year olds to marry 50 year olds is just a different culture and we should accept it.

I keep seeing chatter around the web about how how many of Millennials want to see the US become a socialist country.

I’ve always had some questions about the mentality behind such a desire. Mostly I attributed to a lack of Education about what socialism entails. I also note with some interest that such reports generally come from traditionally leftist strongholds like New York or California.

But then I run across this today….

KEY FINDINGS

– 27% of 18-34 year olds would form a relationship with a robot

– British men were three times more likely to form a relationship with a robot compared to women

… and the perception of the Millennials goes from just plain stupid to Spooky.

Clearly these are the very fruit, the very best that government education can give the world.

Houston, we have a problem.

These are the people that are going to be carrying on Western culture?
