Capitol Cesspool: Dem Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?

Capitol Cesspool: Dem Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?
The California Legislature has declared and legislated sex “a contractual event,” and redefined consensual sexual relations as “rape” if it occurs on a college campus—but not in their own offices. Perhaps lawmakers should have turned their attention inward to their own Capitol offices where lawmakers have been accused of a great deal of non-contractual sexual events.

Headlines Monday by KTLA screamed, “San Fernando Valley Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra to Resign Next Year Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations.” But the devil is in the details. The article then states, “Bocanegra announced he will not seek reelection Monday, citing ‘persistent rumors and speculation’ regarding sexual harassment claims.”

Lib-left Working on Framing Trump as a Lecher

Lib-left Working on Framing Trump as a Lecher
Ever wonder why the lib-left world has lurched itself, full bore into lechery, suddenly outing all the alleged sexual predators among their midst?

It was Hollywood’s 20-year-later outing of Horrid Harvey Weinstein that opened the floodgates exposing the innumerable lechers in today’s amoral society.

CA’s Capitol ‘Unwanted Sexual Advances’ Problem and Official Cover Ups

CA's Capitol 'Unwanted Sexual Advances' Problem and Official Cover Ups
With the casting couch being front page headlines in Hollywood, New York, Washington D.C. and in California’s State Capitol,“unwanted sexual advances” has become the latest unfortunate phrase in today’s news pages. Common to most stories is how perpetrators have protected themselves, with the help of high placed accomplices.

My previous article, “Capitol Cesspool: Dem. Sen. Nancy Skinner Involved in Cover-Up of Sexual Harassment?” identified just how deep the California Capitol swamp is, with then-Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, head of the Assembly Rules Committee, covering up sexual harassment in the Assembly in 2009.

Video: North Korean guards cross border into South in pursuit of defender, shoot him four times

Amazing Video: North Korean guards cross border into South in pursuit of defender, shoot him four times
I guess the reason we can see this is that South Korea has excellent security video at the border, and from a high enough vantage point that you can see pretty well into the North.

Whatever the reason, this is extraordinary.

German police arrest 6 men, posing as refugees, who planned to carry out a Christmas terror attack

German police arrest 6 men, posing as refugees, who planned to carry out a Christmas terror attack
Last December, Germany was rocked when a semi plowed into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin. 12 people were killed, dozens more were injured. The attack was eerily reminiscent of the Nice truck attack, and was eventually determined to have been carried out by a Tunisian asylum seeker on behalf of ISIS.

Angela Merkel (who many believe to be responsible for Germany’s immigration crisis) took a hit in the polls, but it wasn’t enough to derail her political fortunes.  She was elected to a fourth term in September.  At the moment, she’s in political hot water. So, the thought of yet another terror attack tied to the refugee crisis must fill her with dread.

‘P Is For Palestine’ Children’s Book Extolling Intifada Sparks Outrage in New York

TEL AVIV – A children’s alphabet book titled “P is for Palestine” has had women from New York’s Upper East Side up in arms over what they say is nothing more than anti-Semitic propaganda.

The book includes a line that says, “I is for Intifada, Intifada is Arabic for rising up for what is right, if you are a kid or grownup!”—More…

How Grace accelerated the removal of Mugabe from power

Grace Mugabe — 41 years younger than her husband — was once dismissed as a lightweight shopping addict.

But she became increasingly active in public life in recent years, and became the frontrunner to take the top job when Mugabe last week sacked her arch-rival, vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa.—More…

Israel’s Red Lines on Iran’s Foothold in Syria

Israel’s Red Lines on Iran’s Foothold in Syria
The understandings reached recently between the United States and Russia regarding Syria accept the deployment of Iranian forces and Iranian-controlled militias (proxies) on the range from the Golan Heights border – a situation that is entirely unacceptable to Israel. It seems that the time is coming when Israel, if it wants to stop Iran’s influence and consolidation in Syria, will have to become actively engaged in the Syrian quagmire. Israel must demonstrate determination in its demand to remove Iranian forces and Iranian-controlled Shiite militias from the Golan Heights and prevent the establishment of Iranian military infrastructures in Syria that would provide military means to Assad, the Shiite militias, and Hezbollah. For Israel, this is an imperative, as otherwise there is far greater potential for escalation in the northern arena and on the Syrian front, as well as possible spillover to the Lebanese front.

LET THE LEFT DESTROY ITS OWN

LET THE LEFT DESTROY ITS OWN
The left used to protect sexual predators like Bill Clinton and Roman Polanski while mercilessly going after conservatives like Justice Clarence Thomas with false allegations of sexual misconduct.

Today, accusations of “sexual assault” and misconduct against liberal men are finally seeing the light of day.

Israeli researchers discover how sponges build glass skeletons that protect them from their environs

Israeli researchers discover how sponges build glass skeletons that protect them from their environment
The technology for forming and shaping glass requires the application of heat at extremely high temperatures. So how do some marine organisms form their own glass “skeletons” in cold water?

That mystery has now been partially solved by a team of Israeli and German scientists. And while the researchers admit that what the marine organisms are doing “is far beyond the abilities of current human technology,” further study may bring us closer to the ability to mimic the mechanism at room temperature in a lab.

Sexual Harassment––Puhleeze!

Sexual Harassment––Puhleeze
I have a vivid memory of putting on my mother’s high heels and covering my head with the veiled hat she wore on special occasions. All decked out, I made my way up The Boulevard in New Haven to our neighbor’s home about four houses away.

And on that sojourn, I have an equally vivid memory of a man sitting on his porch and stopping me in my tracks with his comments. “Well well well, Missy, don’t we look pretty! And where would you be going today looking so beautiful?”

Marshawn Lynch proves NFL commish Goodell should go
Well, here comes another tempest the National Football League can ill afford.

Running back Marshawn Lynch, playing for the Oakland Raiders in a game against the New England Patriots in Mexico City, sat during the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” but stood up during the Mexican anthem.

On cue, that brought a tweet from you-know-who:

 


Stanford dean caught on film engineering disruption of Robert Spencer speech on Islam

Stanford dean caught on film engineering disruption of Robert Spencer speech on Islam
I spoke at Stanford University last week, and Stanford administrators and Leftist students made sure that as few people as possible heard me. In The Coming of the Third Reich, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts) “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.”

And here we are again.

Advocates of Abortion, Euthanasia, Invited to Speak at the Vatican

Advocates of Abortion, Euthanasia, Invited to Speak at the Vatican
Since 2013, many Catholics have been in denial about Rome’s collusion with abortionists, despite the fact that notorious abortion advocates like Paul Ehrlich and Jeffrey Sachs have repeatedly been invited to speak at the Vatican.

Once again, several advocates of abortion and euthanasia were given a platform to voice their views at a two-day “end of life” conference co-hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life on November 16-17. The conference was conjointly organized by the World Medical Association, which supposedly opposes euthanasia, the German Medical Association, and the Pontifical Academy for Life, but it unfortunately provided a forum for the enemies of life to advance their agenda.

Aircraft carrying 11 crashes in Pacific en route to USS Ronald Reagan; 8 recovered, Japan says

Three people remained missing Wednesday after a U.S Navy plane crashed in the Philippine Sea shortly after takeoff from the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, as early indications point to some kind of engine failure as the cause of the mishap, multiple defense officials told Fox News.

Eight people who were on board the C-2 cargo plane were rescued in “good condition” by U.S. Navy helicopters, according to a statement from the U.S. Navy’s 7th fleet. The aircraft crashed about 575 miles southeast of Okinawa as it was heading from Japan to the aircraft carrier.—More…

Fusion GPS paid journalists, court papers confirm

Newly filed court documents confirm that Fusion GPS, the company mostly responsible for the controversial “Trump dossier” on presidential candidate Donald Trump, made payments to three journalists between June 2016 until February 2017.

The revelation could be a breakthrough for House Republicans, who are exploring whether Fusion GPS used the dossier, which was later criticized for having inaccurate information on Trump, to feed anti-Trump stories to the press during and after the presidential campaign. The three journalists who were paid by Fusion GPS are known to have reported on “Russia issues relevant to [the committee’s] investigation,” the House Intelligence Committee said in a court filing.— More…
