        As a woman of the seasoned citizen age group, my observations of all these claims of sex abuse by women leave me with some points of view in particular that may make sense to others. Maybe not, but here goes…

        Of course, rape, unwanted, forced contact is always wrong and should never go unpunished. But I don’t see the value of sitting on the stories for years and enabling the attacker to continue to harm others. By that time, there’s no evidence to back up the claim so it’s a he said/she said deal and the victim simply gets used as a political tool. Where’s the healing in that?

        Another observation is that the Gloria Steinem’s, Meryl Streep’s and Jane Fonda’s failed miserably as proponents of equal rights for women and making women strong and able to take care of themselves. These women presided over all the “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar” business. They may have taught women to roar, burn their bra’s, abort their babies and take center stage in the sexual revolution and Free Love Society, but apparently, they never taught women how to defend themselves, fight back and have the courage to report assaults when they occurred.

        Our society sexualizes little girls from a very young age. Go shopping for a teen girl and good luck finding anything that speaks to modesty, full coverage of the essentials and plain old good taste. The role models our young girls have are stunningly vulgar. Madonna, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus. When these women degrade themselves and tell young girls to do the same, are we really surprised that men don’t respect women that don’t respect themselves? Men should, but all of them don’t.

        Neither the human body nor the human soul have any value in today’s world. Parents dress their kids in sexy outfits, others have decided to pump their little boys with hormones because they believe there’s a daughter hiding somewhere in that male anatomy. We see troubled teens and college kids everywhere. There is no faith based instruction and no moral grounding and yet we can’t understand why some attack and abuse others. Everyone is disposable and dispensable.

        Don’t know how to change the world except through prayer but my final observation is perhaps the most important. We don’t hear of a lot of attacks on women that have been trained and are members of the NRA. Women that can and do protect themselves with deadly force if the situation arises have a very good chance of not being sexually assaulted. Same with women trained in martial arts. There’s all kinds of female self defense opportunities available. I prefer NRA certified instructors but if we want to lessen the chance of being a victim, whether we work in Congress, in our homes or out Christmas shopping, be proactive. Get trained and get your female family members trained. Be ready and able to fight like hell for your dignity and especially, for your life.

        Don’t act, look or talk suggestively. Don’t appear weak or afraid. Be tough, be clear in your conversations, intentions and have the training to back it up. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, be prepared to roar. Not all attacks are preventable but seems to me if women spent less time at the nail salon and more time at martial arts class or the shooting range, the victim statistics might well change for the better.

What I don’t understand is why any parent would actually pay for tickets to a concert from one of these women and then be surprised when their child wants to act / dress like they do. It’s appalling.

          I don’t think there is anything wrong with a woman wanting to appeal to whatever type of man she desires. Men just simply need to learn how to understand the sensibilities of the women they are with and act appropriately. If one views a woman as a valuable asset then the behavior flows from that.

          These 40 year old accusations get me too, especially considering that most of them were adults when it happened. 40 years ago it was even more of an appalling act and sexually was not even out there like it is today.
          When one looks at the TV shows of today it’s hard to believe that there are not more abuse problems out there. Take a look at the hallway behavior, dress and talk in high schools now a days. So often its like walking into a brothel. As a substitute I have found that even regular teachers and administration have pretty much given up on toning it down.

        You can bet that the denizens of the Swamp are working toward setting up Trump for Impeachment. If they can’t find a smoking gun they will create one.

        The only way we will save the Republic will be through the massive firing of entrenched enemies of the state. Shift power from the Deep State Bureaucracy back to the elected executive and his appointees. The Big Ugly is shaping up to be one big bloody battle.

        Obama ‘s statement in Chicago yesterday calling Trump Hitler was his way of warning that the Big Ugly is going to come down and the inside the Beltway left wing liberals better be prepared to have their rice bowls broken. The Big Ugly is coming.

            I agree. It is unbelievable. What really irks me is that so many talking heads go on TV including Fox and keep claiming that the President is an admitted sexual assaulter per the tape. NOONE EVER CORRECTS THEM. He admitted NO SUCH THING- showing off about what some women “let” you do, presumably because of one’s money and power; does not make one a sexual predator, assaulter, etc. Al Franken just repeated the same lie on the Senate floor. This lie is so pervasive it will soon be the “truth” -kinda like climate change.

              No, I did not date within those circles, but I know women who did.
              Also, anyone who wants a better idea can read Sex And The City by Candace Bushnell or Story Of My Life by Jay McInerny.
              Jay’s book is based on real people, and Candace’s book is a series of essays from which the show was derived.
              Also there is Seinfeld.
              My point being, a lot of behavior we would find depraved and disgusting is considered perfectly normal in other social settings.

      my biggest and most controversial IG inspections took close to a year to complete, write, review, and brief to the tasking authority. And then, the report was always For Official Use Only and could not be released outside IG channels without specific permission from the Inspector General himself. It’s complicated as some might say…

        Hardly worth the trouble. Spend a year working an investigation, chisel out a report that nobody outside the office will read, or even know you spent a year investigating. I assume the little people are just supposed to have faith in what you did, how you did it and what consequences if any were suffered by those under investigation.
        When somebody in the government says “trust me, we did our job” I dont think the line of believers is very long. Just sayin.
        I do appreciate your posts Corwin, but I dont get a real fuzzy feeling that any justice ever comes at the end of these internal investigations. You get the same jaded outlook as when the police investigate and clear themselves of wrongdoing.

        I wouldnt imagine it is a fake investigation or report. However skepticism enters the equation when we learn that the DOJ/FBI have been thumbing their noses at congressional document requests and subpoenas for the better part of a year, but jumped right to attention to start an IG investigation off of a couple of complaints one week before Trump is inaugurated.
        What it did do was prevent Trump from firing the IG and installing his own to conduct the investigation, and allowed Obama appointees to determine the scope of the investigation, and virtually prevent further investigations by the DOJ into the activities of those involved, who all are well aware of the investigation at this point.
        Not sure why it takes so long to investigate Democrats. Mueller has indicted and flipped 4 members of Team Trump in 5 months and is moving up the ladder. You dont have to have all the evidence on every crime commited by everybody before you indict somebody on the evidence you have for any specific crime. Keep investigating and adding charges and defendants later. The evidence of guilt on some of these crimes is already overwhelming, and far far more than the evidence a prosecutor would require to charge anybody else.

          You do if you want it to lead to prosecution – especially when you are not dealing with civilians committing the crime. YOU nor I have any clue to the size and scope of things, or what is or isn’t happening behind the curtain.

          If only our society wasn’t trained to be so impatient and lack the ability to slow down their desires & expectations to a realistic place. There wouldn’t be so much hyper ventilating, tantrums and mis-information.

          Not to mention that the IG is just there to find evidence of malfeasance that management should have taken care of if they were doing their job

          For example, IMO, there is no way that Strozko should have been detailed to Mueller’s investigation after his work with Comey and the Clinton investigation.

          So. Let’s assume the IG does a bang up job. Actually from the little that I can see being released publicly, he is.

          As I understand it, he doesn’t have any real enforcement capabilities, but will report and make recommendations to Congress and DOJ AG.

          I’ve never seen Congress take any real action, so that leaves DOJ AG which will be Sessions where he is not recused and Rosenstein elsewhere.

          I have zero expectations of Rosenstein doing the right thing.

          People here have varying opinions on Sessions, so I assume there will be varying expectations of how he would respond.

          Adding up all the variables, there are lots of ways for this to end in a less than satisfactory way; yet still the possibility that the law will prevail.

I didn’t realize it at first, but I think he’s right. It’s not just the text messages that got him kicked of Crooked Mueller’s team. It seems very likely that Strzok was the person who drafted the FISA request.

      Can’t PDJT declassify the dang FISA warrant application to find out what evidence was used to obtain it? Why wouldn’t he do this?
      I don’t think he is afraid of what might be found out. I recall Comey testifying that PDJT asked for an investigation into the FISA warrant, but Comey convinced him that people might think he (PDJT) was being investigated.
      Is there a legal reason why he can’t declassify it? Would this be considered obstruction of justice again?
      Wouldn’t declassifying the application give some answers? Is this part of teaching the Repubs “how to win”? Like, file the subpoenas and get the info you need.
      Does Congress need evidence to file a subpoena or can they demand information to perform oversight?

      It would seem that Ohr got the dossier from Steele and passed it to Strzok, who then drafted the FISA request using the phony dossier as justification. The sheer depth of corruption by the DOJ and FBI chiefs during the 2016 election is astounding. This was a plot to destroy candidate Trump and when that didn’t work the plot is continuing with an attempted coup. Everyone involved with the phony dossier should be indicted for election tampering.

    A shockingly even handed article regarding Pres. Trump on the effects of the Jerusalem recognition in The Atlantic. As an added bonus it takes a hard look at Arab Regimes and the Palestinians. It includes pros and cons but in the end comes to the conclusion there won’t be a backlash. Mending Fences with King Abdullah of Jordan will be the hardest part.

    “In effect if not in intent, few are as indifferent to Muslim life as Arab countries are. It may be hard for Arabs to admit, but Israel, for all the suffering it has inflicted on the Palestinian territories, has proven—in relative terms—more respectful of Muslim life than most Arab regimes. Nothing Israel has done, or probably could do, can compare to the ongoing Saudi-led intervention in Yemen, which has been roundly condemned as a moral and humanitarian catastrophe of unusual proportions.

    No one, then, should fall under the illusion that declaring Jerusalem Israel’s capital will harm America’s alliances with most, or even many, Arab nations (Jordan being a notable exception). The fact that most Arab countries are autocracies, though, complicates the matter, since unelected, unaccountable regimes do not generally reflect popular sentiment, particularly when it comes to the Palestinian conflict. Arab leaders have been content to use Palestine and Palestinians for rhetorical effect and to absorb or deflect popular anger over their own failures and missteps. But for Arab populations, Palestine still matters, even if primarily on a symbolic level (and if we’ve learned anything in recent years, it’s that symbols matter).

    To be sure, Arabs are preoccupied with their own domestic problems, and the centrality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has always been overstated. But the status of Jerusalem, Islam’s third holiest site, has a way of resonating and sharpening divides. Why even test the proposition? Trump’s move on Jerusalem isn’t the end of the world or even the end of the peace process—which has been a fiction for some time now—but why give extremists or even non-extremists another way to stoke anti-American sentiment? Why further undermine an already undermined Palestinian Authority? If only there were Arab governments that were confident, cared about actual Muslims, and could reflect and convey the frustration that no doubt many Arabs will be feeling in the days and weeks ahead. That Arab world, as we’ve been reminded this week, does not exist. ”

      I imagine from King Abdullah’s perspective (not speaking for him though), the Palestinians are ethnic Jordanians but they’re politically heavily influenced by Iran and Lebanon and backed by the paramilitary group Hezbollah. At home Jordan is more aligned with the Western-backed peace coalition. I would think that Jordan would take a position of deescalation in the Jerusalem matter.

      In the end I don’t think the Palestinians are after peace similarly to how the Democrat party isn’t interested in economic independence for African Americans because they would lose political leverage without grievances.

      I agree. Everyone lies. Women lie. Kids lie. Men lie. I literally watched Dustin Hoffman get grilled for a bad joke to someone he didn’t know was a teen from 40 years ago as if he’d raped her.
      –I’m scared as hell of Leftwing witch hunts. Or any witch hunts, but when they’re driven by Leftwingers I just can’t believe something good will come of it.
      –I think rape will continue at the same rates as before, but now good people’s careers will get ruined without any trials by accusers with agendas.
      –The rules are now that you just accuse a person up to 40 years after an event and they lose their job?
      –This is frightening. They’ve already said that universities are next. I fear they’ll go after doctors, teachers, coaches, ministers and other people before all is said and done.
      –I also think this is all to impeach Trump over nothing and win the Alabama seat.
      –Dems are totally insane and amoral. There’s no way this is headed to something good.

    Bernie Sanders now calling for President Trump to resign.

    Let’s review Bernie’s written rape fantasy:

    “Well, the creepy essay is real, but it was not written by a Republican. The imaginary tale of sexual assault, pleasure and pain was penned by presidential candidate Bernard “Bernie’’ Sanders, 73, the independent junior senator from Vermont.

    A self-described “democratic socialist,’’ Sanders champions such leftist causes as ending global warming and combating income inequality.

    The reaction from members of the Democratic Party?

    Silence.

    The piece, titled “Man — and woman,’’ was published in the Vermont Freeman, an alternative newspaper, in 1972, when Sanders was 30 years old. He wrote it after studying psychology at Brooklyn College in his native borough, after he embraced socialism as a student at the University of Chicago, and before he was elected mayor of Vermont’s largest city, Burlington, in 1981.

    “A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees. A woman tied up. A woman abused,’’ it begins.

    “A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.”

    And more…. ( http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2015/05/young-bernie-sanders-liberty-union-vermont/ ) See the photo of Bernie here practicing his Franken move.

      And President Trump signed an EO last month (or so) directing that aid to Christians in the ME will be done directly instead of through the NGOs.

      We all know that there has been an all out war on Christianity for some time now. Hopefully, the tide can be turned… but it will take a monstrous effort. Anti-christians are everywhere in the State Dept and embedded in many Fed Govt offices.

      There is so much to be done in such a short period of time! If anyone can do it, it is President Trump!

        Then let the people doing the ditch digging have time and space to do their darn job!!!

        “…Spanning more than a decade, former FBI directors Robert Mueller and his successor and protégé James Comey relied on their inner circles to help cover up a surging and troubling amount of sexual misconduct complaints filed by physically violated and emotionally battered female FBI agents….Then there’s the pending concern for blackmail. Yes, blackmail. Inside the FBI. Employed as a political or nefarious tool by FBI brass. What better leverage would a superior use to get an unwilling agent to do dirty work – even break the law — than to threaten that agent to expose his infidelity with a FBI colleague – or multiple colleagues — to his wife?…One well-placed FBI source, however, said Grassley’s office is aware of the growing number of harassment cases involving women employed by the FBI. And his committee could be investigating that as part of its sweeping ethics examination of Comey and McCabe.

        Grassley likely understands the cost to taxpayers here is beyond staggering….”

      If Scott Pruitt calls someone a “polluter” then they must be really bad.

      As AG of Okla, Pruitt sued the EPA several times for overreach and overregulation.
      So he is far from being an ‘environmental zealot’.

      Pruitt is systematically taking the EPA back to what it was originally created to do…protect our lands from polluters.
      It was not created to kill off all manufacturing and commercial enterprise, as the leftoids have been using it to do.

      Don’t bet the farm on it. Look at past history. NO IG report has EVER, EVER resulted in reform of anything. Just as no congressional committee investigation ever led to anything nor has any committee appointed to investigate anything in gov’t. ever led to any thing being reformed. It’s all a CYA endeavor.

      Wray is apparently not the Director of the FBLie. The IG somehow got appointed as the director w/o POTUS and asleep at the wheel Sessions knowing it. Had I been able to question Wray, I would have stated to him, “are you the FBI director or is the IG the Director? If the IG is the director, then why do we need you? The IG has been conducting an investigation before you were appointed. Perhaps the POTUS should have let the FBI director’s job remain vacant until the IG’s report was submitted, since you have turned the dept. over to him. Seems as though taxpayers have been paying you to do nothing.”

        In a statement provided to HuffPost, Ford denied the allegations: “This simply did not happen. I have never forcibly grabbed any woman or man in my life. Having drinks and dinner for work is part of my job, and all of my outreach to the news reporter making these false allegations was professional and at the direction of my firm for business purposes. I support and have tremendous respect for the brave women now speaking out in this important national dialogue. False claims like this undermine the real silence breakers. I will now be bringing legal action against the reporter who has made these false claims about me as well as Morgan Stanley for improper termination.”

        John Singer, Ford’s employment counsel with the firm Singer Deutsch LLP, said “Morgan Stanley has still not told Harold directly of his termination, and unlike every other circumstance I’ve been in the company has refused provide me with a reason.”

        He added: “This all demonstrates how this was a matter of convenience during a hyper-sensitive time and not based on real facts.”

        One of the things President Trump… and Don Jr. understand, though… is that NOBODY reads the full story. For every 1 person that reads the full story, 100 more will look at the byline and never click it.

        Understanding stuff like that is one of the big reasons President Trump won the election. So for instance, Billy Joel made a sarcastic joke about him at a concert, President Trump says “Billy Joel, just heard about your remarks this evening, thank you so much. You’re a real star!” or something.

        Most people never actually looked at what Billy Joel ACTUALLY said, just Trump’s tweet about it. He did the same exact thing to Cher.
