Senator Al Franken Schedules Announcement For Tomorrow…

It appears the DNC (Perez) gender plan for the political aspirations of elected Democrats is continuing.  In a coordinated and strategically timed roll-out today, DNC Chairman Tom Perez and a host of top level Democrats began demanding Senator Al Franken resign from his Senate seat.

Senator Franken is inside the famous Democrat cross-fire ‘kill zone’.  His likelihood of re-election is very low, and simultaneously his ouster feeds a scripted useful narrative. Hence, he’s a goner…

WASHINGTON DC – […] Starting around 11:30 a.m. ET, the senators posted statements in a coordinated effort, one after the other, on social media, saying the Minnesota Democrat should step down.

Some comments were elaborate, lengthy and loaded with a moral message. Others, like that of Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, were straight to the point. “Al Franken should resign,” she simply tweeted.

Within the next 90 minutes, 16 Democrats — 10 of them women — and one Republican senator — Susan Collins of Maine — had publicly urged their colleague to vacate his seat.

Meanwhile, giants in other industries like Hollywood and the news media were being fired or quickly taken down for similar allegations. In the US House of Representatives, Democratic leaders were calling for two of their own — longtime Rep. John Conyers of Michigan and freshman Rep. Ruben Kihuen of Nevada — to step down amid allegations of unwanted sexual advances.

In the Senate, however, it was quiet. Until Wednesday. Women Democratic senators had been talking behind the scenes for at least the past week about how to deal with Franken, multiple aides told CNN. But those talks reached a tipping point Wednesday morning, they said, when Politico published a report at 9 a.m. ET of another woman alleging that Franken touched her inappropriately in 2006, before he was elected to office.

The story prompted a flurry of calls and texts between Senate offices within minutes, and it was decided sometime between then and about 10:30 a.m. ET that the women senators would go public in a show of unity with their desire for Franken to step aside. “Their patience had worn incredibly thin,” said an aide to one of the women senators. Soon after that, Franken was given a heads up about what was coming, according to an aide to one of the women senators. (read more)

    A rumor out there.
    The Senators did not call for Franken to resign until he called them and told them he was going to resign. So they get the creds for asking him to resign.
    The funny rumor:
    Someone started a rumor that Al was going to resign, even though he was not going to. The Senators ran to call for him to resign. Now Al is not going to resign. So are they going to walk it back.

      If Minnesota had a Republican governor who might appoint a Republican interim senator, all dems whether male, female, or any of those other genders, would be fighting tooth and nail for Franken, no matter how bad the optics. As it stands their virtue signaling costs them nothing. Minnesota has a democrat governor, so Franken will be replaced by a democrat, likely Keith Ellison. Sexual predators should go, no doubt. The Left detests sexual predators as much as the rest of us do, but they love their own sexual predators.

    Folks I have been saying it for the past three weeks that there is one target 🎯 the Democrats, MSM, RINOs are all after and that is our President! Notice who was given the green light to come out first. The POS Senator from NY, Gillibrand. At this point she is the front runner to win the Democrat nomination in 2020. A few weeks ago she went after Bill Clinton by stating if she had been in the Senate at the time, she would have asked him to resign. She has been at the forefront of sexual harassment in the Senate.

    They realize the Muh Russia fiasco is on its last leg. Once it disappears, all you will hear for the next 2+ years is a recycling of our President’s accusers with a few more deciding to come out with false stories. They will claim that they have taken the high road while the Republicans have not. They will use Roy Moore and our President as the example. It will be non stop 24 hours a day.

    In their minds, that is the only way they can fight him. Everything he is doing and will do in transforming our country will mean they can’t beat him on domestic and foreign policy.

    The great news for us is that our President was elected a month after these BS accusations came out. Nothing has changed since then other than the fact that our country is being Made Great Again. I hope that the Senate actually follows through with their threat to bring ethic charges against Roy Moore. He will have his chance to dispute his accusers. Gloria Allred will have to produce the document. It won’t stand up against forensics.

    The Senate will realize this and won’t move forward with an ethics review. I pray that Gillibrand is the nomination. Good luck convincing the Rust Belt, Middle America and the South that a NY Senator is the right person to run our country. America has awoken to the fact that a NY Businessman was the BEST choice in running our country not just for four years but eight years!

    Sorry…my spidey sense finds the whole Franken thing odd. Franken did some very juvenile things prior to being a Senator (as the photo on the airplane shows). His whole career was based on juvenile humor. He thought the gropes were funny. He’s a dope. I find what he did (though I don’t approve) in a completely different league than the serious abuse of power and threats to obtain sexual favors that many of the slime balls in DC or Hollywood have done (W. Clinton, Conyers, Weinstein, etc.). As a Minnesotan I cheer him resigning and say good riddance….but we are probably going to see Keith Ellison imported into that seat…I would rather have Stuart Smiley than Ellison (who is reknowned around these parts for not being too bright). I think Franken is in on whatever the master plan is. He knows he won’t be reelected and might as well fall on the sword in order for that sword to be used on a certain President. Something doesn’t smell right here.

          I must say, I was not surprised in the least by the accusations against Judge Moore. Living in the liberal he**hole of western Washingtonstan, I have come to expect these shenanigans whenever a true conservative encroaches upon the status quo. I expected this also with PDJT during the election cycle, and I was not disappointed. What truly chaps my hide is that women who truly have been assaulted will continue to be doubted because of these women being trotted out prior to an election, whether false or not. I suspected immediately it was a hit on Judge Moore, and Gloria Allred entering the picture only cemented my belief that these “accusations” were, indeed, false.

    • What do Trump and Moore have in common? They are the only two politicians that were not pre-endorsed by the swamp, and therefore can’t be controlled by the establishment. The people have woken up and are now voting for candidates they can’t control. The Deep State is terrified about this. All they have left is to fabricate accusers to bring them down for non existent sexual crimes. Something which is almost impossible to prove either way. They really do think we are as dumb as a box of rocks.

    matures which is much sooner than a male they do not get ‘damaged’ because some guy pinches their bum. Rape is a different thing. I have had attitude about this for some time. I would see/hear
    women playing fun with guys in the office, or in a bar after work then talk about them because they
    made a pass at them. No sympathy from me, as I saw them as much to blame. My story and I’m sticking to it.

  15. My two cents. I don’t think he should resign. He clearly thinks he has done nothing wrong and is torn about all this. He is being bullied out of his job.

    This, like everything else, is all getting totally out of control. Today he was accused of hugging somebody. Really??? He has never admitted he did anything wrong. He has said sorry if people were offended by his friendly manner, not that he was a predator. There are plenty of them in DC, and I have not heard anything that would put him in this category. That picture was him making a foolish joke. I don’t even think he made bodily contact with her. As a politician, it was a silly thing to do, but it wasn’t assault. He didn’t force her to have sex against her will, or leave her with a bruised and broken lip, something the DEMs have all defended in their dear leader before. Roy Moore’s accusers are all people he has prosecuted in the past. One of them even produced evidence that was a forgery. But still the media don’t care. The accusation is enough. If Moore doesn’t sue, this will never end.

    So here is my turn.

    When I went to DC, Pelosi and Schumer both touched me inappropriately. There we go. I said it. I am so brave for coming out. I can bathe in my new victim status. Tomorrow, I expect both to be gone, because I said so. Because that it how it works now.

    And how many women’s cleavages have you seen? How many women dress to make sure you can see their ass? What about a cameltoe? Is this all sexual assault on my senses? Women do dress provocatively, and they do it to turn men on, but they get offended if the the WRONG man is turned on.

    And who would investigate? The FBI? That is nothing but a whore house and a place where women go to be abused. Don’t believe me? Read this

    http://truepundit.com/as-fbi-directors-mueller-and-comey-ignored-dozens-of-female-agents-who-were-sexually-abused-by-colleagues-and-extorted-at-alarming-rate/

    What do they think of these highly paid patriotic “can’t do anything wrong” heroes we must all look up to now? And they go after Al Franken as their fall guy. We need more conservative women to start condemning this witch hunt. CheryI Sandberg has.

    I have had my rear end fondled by women many a time when I was young, and at work. I just dealt with it, there and then. I didn’t need to ruin their lives over it. And it wasn’t something that traumatized me. I was just taken aback, mainly because I am married, and thought their actions were too forward. But I never thought these people could be put into a category of sexual predators. A little overconfident – yes. Sexually promiscuous – possibly. Making a pass at me – obviously so. But a predator – never.

    Franken should fight it out. I am a staunch conservative. I agree with virtually none of his politics. But so what? It doesn’t mean he is not entitled to justice and representation just like everyone else.

    We are all going to have to live like 17th Century puritans at this rate.

    And what about this. Ivanka is being abused by her children. Or was it the other way around? When you look at the link below, don’t forget to NOT look at all the sexual images of these media whores who desperately want attention. It will make you a sexual predator.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5152623/Ivanka-Trump-slammed-photo-kids-dress.html

    The world has gone insane. Franken should fight the puritans, who are probably all perverts themselves. Most of it is projection.

      Again, disagree here. A woman making a physical pass at a man can be told, knock it off or I’ll knock you off. But a man making a physical, pretend or otherwise, pass at a woman ? No, there’s a disparity in physical force potential there that is far more threatening, so women friends say. It’s not as easy to shrug off, since as one told me, she kept wondering if the guy was next going to corner her in provate and try again, with more intent, as he was mad she didn’t “want it”.

      No, men are and should be held to a different standard because of the disparity in physique, musculature, height etc. That doesn’t exonerate or excuse women who make false or misleading allegations. It’s also not fair that women are safer in a group of other women than alone in out of the way places, but that’s just the facts of life.

      Yes, they are using Moore and Franken to go after Trump … so everyone must demand due process and not “mob justice” for ALL the accused. In a courtroom, the SJW will have to define their (idiotic) terms. Moore’s accuser said it was “Creepy” that a 30+, public sector employee, college graduate and war veteran chatted with a 22 year old salesgirl. Was it “creepy” that the publicly employed, 30+ year old, college graduate, war veteran JFK talked with the 22 year old Jackie?
      And, the Social Justice Warriors are using the word “minor” to refer to a woman who is over the age of consent … but under 21! Most of our (older and much older) Presidents met their future first ladies when their future wives were “minors”!
      Moore’s accuser said she was a 14 year old waitress when Moore constantly hung around at the counter and then molested her out back, in the dark, in his car, next to the dumpster … after 10 PM closing … EXCEPT … you had to be 16 to work there, the dumpster was on the side, the building was well lit, a car couldn’t turn around in the back, the restaurant closed after 11, the Goodyear workers who went there didn’t wear coat and ties, waitresses didn’t serve or talk to patrons at the bar … and no one ever saw Moore or her there.

The type of people who would actually know Matt Lauer’s “patterns”. You know the stories about him giving $100 tips, or sending notes to some guys son about “you dad is the most amazing guy I know.” I think he made a lot of allies that discreet places and maybe people like Roger Stone are going around coordinating some of these initial “me too’s”.
