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)

    I just posted this in the other thread:

    Well, I’m not holding my breath waiting for the GROPER to resign.

    My local news (in south central Minnesota) just reported that Franken doesn’t have any intentions on resigning BUT he will make an announcement tomorrow.

    They also said that Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) HAS NOT called for Franken’s resignation, but she did speak with him on the phone this morning.

    And that was it…….. on to the next story.

    Not a peep from Governor Dayton about this fiasco. His name was never even mentioned.

    But their main concern is “The People of Minnesota” — Right!
    Well then, how about telling us the TRUTH instead of leaving us playing this guessing game?!?

    So Frustrating!

      This is a slippery slope, If we start going back years, and finding things about people, some without evidence, everyone would be guilty. If he did these things in office , like Clinton, he should resign, he and others may be pigs and vile, but if we say everyone should be gone who did something years ago, then this will be the way every election goes, a censure or a sanction would be fine, let the voters throw him out.

            Women Senators who are calling for Sen. Franken to resign are being used unwittingly (at least the the moment) by Deep State to further next possible try for our POTUS.
            Watch for ALL elected office holders to start being microscoped for ANY possible morals/non-consensual action charge even from a person who says “50 years ago”. The new witch hunt will expand to WOMEN once it proves successful against MEN (“equal opportunity morals charges”).
            Watch later on for self-inflated “morals experts” to start destroying American history because THOMAS JEFFERSON, for example, not only owned slaves but likely had sexual relations with them (the Sally Hemiings issue), WARREN HARDING had extra marital relationships while he was President, etc. But GuaranDamnTee you the Democrats WILL NOT touch Franklin Roosevelt (Lucy Mercer)—because he was “first cousin to God”.

    But strategically it would have been better to keep him around as a Senator. Provides cover for Judge Moore. Franken was up for reelection and should have been easily voted out of office. Now he’ll be replaced by some even crazier leftist who might get reelected in the mid terms.

    Above all, this gives me a really sinking feeling about the state of due process in our country. J’Accuse!

      This is very simple. We demand due process and keep demanding due process. If the Democrats want to burn their own as kindling, let them. We can actually CRITICIZE the communist Democrats for doing what they’re doing.

      My defense of Moore is that he’s innocent until proven guilty. Clearly the communists are using innuendo and fraud, lies and manufactured “evidence” to go after Moore. They are also prosecuting the past by today’s standards. This is not only designed to harm conservatives – it is designed to undermine due process, and reinstall the media as our moral minders. NO. We refuse. The media are not the courts.

      This is exactly why we have due process.

      All we have to do is sit on the sidelines, demand due process, eat our popcorn, and criticize the communist Democrats for their show trials.

          Amen!

          Even in Franken’s case, I think we need a cool head. He should be gone for having won by cheating, IMO – NOT for being a comedian his whole life, even as a politician.

          I really hate to defend Franken, but the fact is, his faux groping is no more offensive to me than a lot of Amy Schumer’s horrible stuff, nor does it even approach the comic skits of the more “R-rated” redneck comedians, who talk about a LOT worse than stuff like the Franken photos that used to be funny to Democrats.

          To me, this charade is a last-ditch effort by the Democrat Communists to keep a hold on the White House and the Senate using the “we must elect a woman” strategy.

          Forget it! We need to elect competence, and that is more likely to be a conservative woman, than one of their commie crackpots. And right now, TRUMP is the most competent thing out there. Woman card buys nothing there.

          I just say no. “Jury of our peers” is there for a reason. The Democrat-controlled media is NOT our police, judge and jury. Even Franken needs to be looked at with a cool head. What he did was “edgy but acceptable” at the time. This is confederate statues all over again – prosecute the past by today’s standards. It is RUBBISH to get around the law.

          RULE OF LAW. Trump is Rule of Law, and the Democrat Communists need to accept the law or pound sand in the pen.

            Franken is a sleeze, but the photograph is not evidence of a crime, and the unproven accusations describe pervy behavior, but not crimes a prosecutor would charge. The last one accuses him of putting his hand on her waist in their photo selfie for pete’s sake.

              Collins! LOL! FAKE REPUBLICAN!

              Yes, some of it is getting ridiculous. The left has stirred up a mixture of truly nasty stuff, but also a lot of “Lena Dunham-style revised history”, where behavior accepted (more or less) by all parties and society at the time is revised in memory because of current mindset, to create something that gets victim-reward virtue-strokes in the current moral hysteria.

              To me, it’s a form of dishonesty to restate our past feelings about things, to fit into current social standards, or our own current frame of mind. I was always flattered (though often embarrassed or put on the spot) by “inappropriate” female advances in my younger days, even though some of these things are now considered career-enders, university expulsion material, or worse. They were “OK” back then, and I think it’s not just wrong but dishonest to treat them differently now. The law has well-worn principles about judging things appropriately in time, and civilized people do well to adopt those as personal ethics, IMO.

              Interestingly, as the pace of social change accelerates in tandem with technological change, we should see this as more and more of a problem. There will very likely be multiple major social morality revisions in our children’s lives. And the Democrats will make sure there are several too many, I’m sure! 😉

However, hard work, no matter the party, still provides a chance to win. The Election Integrity Committee (or whatever it’s called) will hopefully give us fair chance to prevail.
            Above all the base needs as much energy as 2016.

        And similarly to the Russian Collusion they are so fond of, none of the accusations against Moore (except for the ones already discredited), actually involve a crime.

        People might not like him having dated 17 year olds (if true), but it wasn’t illegal then, and it wouldn’t be illegal today since to my knowledge, no credible accusation has included sexual contact.

        And part of the due process you rightfully bring up would include the statute of limitations. The reason it exists is because it becomes harder to mount a defense, the longer ago the alleged crime was committed.

    A bombshell report from the New York Times published Wednesday reveals what many had suspected for years; both Bill and Hillary Clinton knew about –and helped conceal- allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for decades.

    The article, titled “Weinstein’s Complicity Machine,” details the enablers surrounding the studio big-shot, including celebrities as well as prominent political figures; mainly the Clintons.

    The author describes the “celebrity shield” that Weinstein had created around himself, noting “Chief among them were Bill and Hillary Clinton.”

      Now – the real question – which way – or both ways – did blackmail “STFU” material flow? Was it Clinton-to-Weinstein, Weinstein-to-Clinton, or BOTH? I believe it was BOTH.

      In the chaos of Democrat and Republican misdeeds, “she who controls the sins, controls the world”. What was desired was a condition of pressure – knowledge of sins that could be weaponized on offense one way and defended the other. The net benefit would go to the communists. What is happening now is loss of the forced equilibrium, due to loss of political power.

      I would not put it past Slim’s Slimes to muddy the waters of the real crimes – that Weinstein was PROVIDING blackmail material to Clinton-world.

      Why do I say this? Because I believe (for reasons I’m sitting on) that Weinstein sought to find dirt on people who were NOT in any way a problem to him – but who WERE a problem for people like the Clintons, and globalism in general.

      KNOWLEDGE is POWER. And we know who wanted power, had power, and tried to maintain power.

    It’s hard for these Senators to want to give up the money. They’ll hang on as long as they can. Instead of term limits, we need to stop lobbyists from funding these people. Then it would not be so attractive to stay. Right now they make a ton of money in a government position. Makes no sense.

      Ain’t gonna happen if enough people feel the way I do.. that media, education and politicians (for example Clintons) were enabling sexual and other abuse for decades. People who grew up under that kind of leadership were likely to think groping and nasty jokes were “funny”.
      I’m fine with changing the culture going forward, but not fine with punishing people who went along with 1960s “cool”

      BY THE WAY: Read about the origins of “Kwanzaa” and what that the originator of that festivity (Maulana Karenga) did to women around him… will Kwanzaa be celebrated by congresscritters this year? LOL
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maulana_Karenga
      “A May 14, 1971, article in the Los Angeles Times described the testimony of one of the women: “Deborah Jones, who once was given the Swahili title of an African queen, said she and Gail Davis were whipped with an electrical cord and beaten with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. She testified that a hot soldering iron was placed in Miss Davis’ mouth and placed against Miss Davis’ face and that one of her own big toes was tightened in a vise. Karenga, head of US, also put detergent and running hoses in their mouths, she said. They also were hit on the heads with toasters.”[17]

          Karenga’s behavior wasn’t ok in the 1960s and isn’t OK now, but we have a postage stamp for Kwanzaa, and there are umpteen websites touting Karenga as a hero for children to look up to… would just love to see someone compelled to explain why his history has been glossed over/revised. And in comparison, if asking 16-year-olds to a date with mom’s permission (as a 30 year old) or making boob jokes is *verboten* — then how on earth does Karenga get a pass?

                  sunnydaze, I agree that Franken encouraged misbehavior. The entire entertainment industry encouraged misbehavior, and that’s *my* point. A majority of the population, both male and female, was complicit in encouraging and egging on Franken. Now we’re veering off in the other direction. But at the time, the “rules” were different. So let’s change the rules going forward — but I’m not prepared to crucify every fool who went with the flow in the past and was paid/encouraged to do so by popular opinion that has suddenly shifted.

                  What I’d love to see just about now is more Pence, who was mocked for tightlaced prudery only a year ago for his prudent marital behavior. I’m not a particular Pence fan and disagree with him on certain issues, but the sudden so-offended behavior from Democrat leadership is both hypocritical and awesome to behold

But my own reaction is this: As atrocious as my former high school was for sexual harassment of every variety, I would not try to punish every perp who was a sinner in that environment, towards me and towards others.

                  What I WOULD do is lay out improved expectations for behavior going forward, so that the kids don’t get the idea that gross misbehavior and disrespect is just dandy. Which was the message that way too many kids get during school and from entertainment, and then continue out into the workplace

    So what it looks like is that the demoncrats know Moore is going to win next week and they are setting themselves up as being the morally superior party by ousting their in-house perv Franken so they can then demand that the GOP oust Moore. Being perceived as morally and intellectually superior to all others is the lifeblood of being a leftist. It’s what gives their sad lives meaning. But when Moore wins, the seat will stay Republican regardless of whether Moore stays or goes, so the dems lose either way.

THEN they demand symmetry on Moore. But because they own Turtlehead, no due process. So what WE have to do is demand that Turtlehead step down. He is OWNED by the other side, just like “Republicans” Collins, McCain, Flake, and Corker.

        In fact, I always suspected that Turtlehead was owned by dirt from Weinstein. How ironic.

            Can’t give up certain specifics, because I have learned not to teach the other side how to evade my scrutiny. When they know what to cover up, they cover it up.

            However, I may make the case at some point if it proves necessary, or if I get more puzzle pieces that solve things fully.

            Kinda funny, but I actually like Mitch. Most of the time, he does the right thing, even when it appears that he’s helping the other side. He’s a bit like that cop in Casablanca. He’s a definite gray hat. White hat with a gun to his back. What is the gun? Who knows?

            Control is sometimes achieved with stuff that it not necessarily illegal or even damning. All it has to be is something that works. Self-control, like self-censorship, is always the communist goal. Get people to do their work for them. Avoid having to even make that phone call.

            They have something. Weinstein was the master of finding “something”. Who knows what it is? But Mitch often doesn’t have backbone unless WE put it there. Very telling. IMO, they have something.

          I agree that Moore didn’t do anything, and he has my full and unqualified support for that reason, but the Senate is not a jury of peers – it’s almost half communists, and more than half if you count the votes they control. The side which would defend Moore against leftist agitators is led by a spineless wimp who only cares about what he can get away with, and what keeps him in power. He would turn on Moore in a heartbeat if he felt he had to do it for his own political survival. The questions are whether Moore can remain a senator if elected (I think YES, because of our support) and can he remain effective under sabotage by McConnell (I think only MAYBE, because Turtlehead is very shrewd).

          To me, it is not a question of our support for Moore depending on anything else – it is that everything else depends on our support for Moore. We have already seen FALSE EVIDENCE used against him. THAT tells me everything I need to know. THAT is what they have. FALSEHOODS.

    *Had my (ex)wife complained to me you can bet your ass I would have put a stop to it. But she did not. It wasn’t the only time I learn after the fact of this behavior.

    Corporate lawyers with their “harassment is whatever a woman says it is so don’t talk to them if you can possible avoid it” lectures had me to the point of not even speaking to women in the work place.

    Women and their white knights will tell you “no mean no” which is a crock of you know what.

    Empirical data indicates otherwise.

    “No” often means “maybe”.
    Or “keep trying because I am hard to get”.
    Or my least favorite, “Even though I am saying no” do it anyway.
    Even NO! sometimes later elicits “Why did you stop”?.
    I literally had one woman email me and tell me I should be more physical and rape her. (her word) I still have said email. Now how does a guy with my above stated history deal with that? She was 50, college educated, church going, smart and funny, and eventually dropped me because I just couldn’t bring myself to behave in the manner she desired. I show up and she cooks me dinner and then shows me where she keeps her hand cuffs. Now how does a guy with my above stated history deal with that? I experienced this behavior on several more occasions during my between wives years..

    Do I excuse bad behavior? H No! But it sure would be helpful if women (as a group) would be a little more consistent in their behavior.

    • This is so old….the woman thing is passe….really, Dems live in the past, The women thing happened in the 60’s and 70’s and it needed to happen in many ways,

      When I was a kid I could not do many things I wanted to do because I was a girl; I could not join little league or be in the soap box derby (I grew up near Akron, Ohio and that was a big thing…and my dad only had girl kids and he would have really liked to do that thing too).

      The primary professions for women were secretary, teacher, and nurse. That’s it, The boys got to be the class president and always got to be the leaders.

      Today, women can do and be anything they want to be!!! They must not know how lucky they are.

      The sex thing has always been around; I can’t say I was ever sexually harassed at work, but I watched men get ahead of me when they were no more qualified and not as smart. I was sexually assaulted a couple of times in college, but for some reason it did not traumatize me for life…I could still get pissed off about it, but it happened so long ago, who cares…so women coming out 40 years later to cry about something is a bit of a stretch for me. Or even a few years later, for christ sake, if it was that traumatic why wait years to speak up.

      I also think women today are really messed up. They don’t want to be treated differently because of their gender, but they go to women’s marches wearing body parts on their heads…so confused. I would be very careful about voting for any women under the age of 60 today and no age if they are a Dem….all they care about is their abortions.

    I am not buying the faux outrage. What took them so long? Also, they think they can run the Dem. women as victims and heroines of sexual assault against the big, bad men. Hence, it started today with TIME Magazine’s person of the year. Don’t think that Time is not in on the plan.

    Play stupid games, win what?

    Regardless of the reasons, I can’t express how happy I am to see Stewart Smalley being served up. He received his seat via recount-until-victory and should never have become a Senator. He reeks of sleaze and to be honest the only surprising angle of this story is that he was predating women and not young men.

    Good riddance and let the lefties continue to shuffle deck chairs on the RMS Identity Politics.

    I wouldn’t say Angry Al’s “likelihood of re-election is very low”. Democrats in Minnesota will vote for and keep voting for any…..one who can get their name on the ballot (see: Keith Ellison and Sen. “Rated F” now Gov. Goofy, Mark Dayton).

  40. Hard to say – i have a different take and i’ve been bouncing back and forth, trying to figure out the true agenda here since Weinstein broke:

    i’m getting back to my first instinct lately: that the democrats are willfully sacrificing their own, perhaps with the COMPLICITY of some of the high profile accuse-ees (Franken comes to mind, and Weinstein/Lauer possibly, not that those 2 aren’t foul examples of human beings and guilty as hell), in a desperate bid to position themselves to attempt removing the President on ALLEGATIONS alone – they’re looking for moral superiority and false equivalence – we “forced” our own to step down, so Trump must too. But they’re confused (slightly mentally ill and unable to think clearly) as they claw to regain a SHRED of their tattered reputation…

    CLEARLY this call for Franken to step down is purely POLITICAL – see steinem et al and unarguably the WORST sexual predator in US political history, mr. ROD HAM, so…

    in that respect, i’m skeptical of all of it

    and btw: i’d suggest that that motivation would apply to their assault on Roy Moore too, although in no way other than that would i draw a parallel between Moore and Donald Trump

    They had to let Conyers go, because the stuff he was doing was REALLY over the line, the issue kept getting pushed, and it was being pushed by beautiful, intelligent Black Women.

    Protected minority status.

    So they had to let Conyers go. They were fine with Franken, until they let Conyers go, then everybody started saying hey they got rid of the black guy, but not the white guy.

    So now they have to let Franken go.

    They are not doing this so they have ammo against Moore. They already have all the ammo against Moore and Trump that they need in their minds, they are doing this because of their virtue signaling way of campaigning.

    They couldn’t keep Conyers because specifically black women were accusing him. They then couldn’t keep Franken because they had to get rid of Conyers.

    They’ll still attack Moore and Trump, but they’d rather do it with their two democrats intact.

      You actually think democrats have seen the light and suddenly believe in moral vurtues? With Franken in there, there is no way to go after Moore once he is elected. They look at it as a one for one deal and they are confident they can keep Franken’s seat.

    I don’t see how Franken being pressured into to resigning impacts Roy Moore. If the Senate voted to expell him that would impact Moore, but the Senate would have to actively do something, and I can’t see them doing it.

    The people of Alabama already know about the allegations. If they vote to send Moore to the US Senate anyway, then there would very little ground for the Senate to stand on because the people of Alabama would have spoken clearly. It would set a terrible precedent for the Senate to void the results of a state election, and it would open a big can of worms over States’ rights.

    There is a difference between Franken / Conyers and Trump / Moore.

    Franken and Conyers misdeeds weren’t known and vetted before they were elected, and Conyers paid hush money while he was in office.

    Trump’s Access Hollywood tape was listened to and judged as he was running for office. Plenty of people didn’t vote for him because of it. Moore the same thing, he is being vetted as he is running for office.

    I will believe Franken is resigning when I see it.

    It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Franken comes out tomorrow and says he’s going to fight to the last. That way all the virtue-signallers are on record opposing his presence, and yet Franken stays, and the Demonrats continue to benefit from his vote in the Senate.

    And much more importantly, no precedent would be set for Demonrats to resign from the Senate over sexual misconduct… because if that dam is breached, the whole lake will soon follow!

    How many male Demonrat Senators have NOT engaged in some kind of sexual harassment or other impropriety?

    0%?

    No matter how much of a perv, jerk or anything else our opposition is, some of these accusations and accusers may effect many, if not all of us. I still have a suspicion the Dem’s are weeding out, and feeding on their own, to lower the bar of sexual assault, and/or harrassment to go after POTUS himself. Something like, “thirty years ago, Donald Trump said I looked hot “. Or some other such nonsense. As it is slowly showing, the Dem’ s are lowering the bar from conviction, accusation, allegation, ;And the next step they’ll try is mere suspicion.

      I agree with you Matt.

      That may be what they’re trying to do, but it won’t (can’t) work, which means they’re either insane (hard to argue otherwise) or they’re up to something else (or both).

      With DJT, after millions of dollars of opposition research in the crucible of a presidential campaign, the very worst they could do was to find that DJT engaged in ‘locker room talk’, that he SAID something inappropriate.

      Who cares?

      There is no way to equate saying something inappropriate with physically assaulting or raping someone; there just isn’t.

      The Dems keep being exposed for committing actual crimes. DJT committed no crime at all and isn’t even accused of such.

      Roy Moore’s accusers are not just without credibility, many of them (including the most recent, see Thomas Wictor’s investigation) have been shown to be fraudulent. If I was in Alabama, I would simply expect a new accusation every hour, on the hour, between now and December 12th, because political interests are paying women to make false accusations.

      And I hope the DOJ prosecutes all of the them, and more importantly, the handlers and smear merchants behind them.

      Roy Moore has NO credible accuser.

      DJT said something vulgar, about no one in particular, but he says lots of things which delicate people find offensive. So what?

      By comparison, Al Franken is photographed grabbing a sleeping woman’s breasts, Conyers has settled sexual harassment claims with taxpayer money, and in both cases (and others involving Demonrats) there are multiple additional credible accusers.

      So it’s apples and oranges (Moore and DJT vs. Franken, Conyers, et al).

      As long as it remains apples and oranges, the Demonrats have only succeeded in constructing a circular firing squad.

      I hope they have high capacity mags, bump-stocks and red-dot sights.

      Fire at will, lol!

        Yes, Scott, I get all that, the entire construct is nonsense. But since the MSM is still anti President Trump, they’ll still distribute fake news. Heck, Maddow the other night was reporting how Deutsche Bank received a subpoena for records involving POTUS, which was fake. Unfortunately the majority of folks in our country don’t pay attention to important issues, and base their opinions on what they hear from the “Main Stream Media”, and either refuse or don’t give a flip about what is real.

          ______________

          Yes, but that particular ‘leak’ does no actual damage to DJT at all. All it did was further prove that MSM is fake news… and only for those who are paying attention anyway.

          How many viewers does Madcow have? 2 million?

          That’s LESS THAN one percent of the population. Same goes for the rest of the MSM, and most of the audience for the other shows / newspapers / websites overlap, it’s mostly the same people watching multiple shows.

          As you said, the large majority are not even paying attention.

          Which begs the question, for WHOM exactly is the political-class ‘performing’ all of this theater?

          It can’t be the PUBLIC, because the Public isn’t even engaged or paying attention, and the political-class knows it.

          So they’re ‘performing’ for THEMSELVES. All the Kabuki theater, all the narratives, all the histrionics, all their ‘strategizing’ and coordination, it’s ALL for themselves, for the artificial social construct they’ve created for themselves, for the population of their own tiny Bubble-world. Those of us who are actually paying attention are essentially just ‘voyeurs’ of their narcissism and melodrama, lol!

          They are doing ALL of these ‘maneuvers’ for the sake of ‘optics’ which NINETY PERCENT of the population could care less about and never even SEE!

          Think about THAT for a moment!
