We owe a huge apology to Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey

Published

on

Juanita Broaddrick was known as “Jane Doe No. 5” for years, having accused President Bill Clinton of sexual assault in a hotel room years before. Clinton, after having survived impeachment on the backs of Senate Democrats and even a few Republicans, called Broaddrick’s accusation “false and outrageous.”

“It was 20 years ago and I let a man in my room and I had to take my lumps,” Broaddrick said in an interview as she described why she waited so long to come forward. “It was a horrible, horrible experience and I just wanted it to go away.”

Sound familiar?

Clinton supporters hopped all over Broaddrick because previously she testified in the Paula Jones case that Clinton made no “unwelcome sexual advances toward her in the late 1970s.” From the Washington Post in 1999:

Broaddrick, who owns a nursing home in Van Buren and a facility for mentally retarded children in Fort Smith, Ark., said she first met Clinton in April 1978 when he was the state’s 31-year-old attorney general making his first run for governor and she was working as a volunteer for the campaign.

In 1998, Clinton settled with Paul Jones for $850,000. From the Washington Post story:

Robert S. Bennett, Clinton’s chief attorney in the case, said the president still insists Jones’s allegations of a crude proposition in a Little Rock hotel suite seven years ago “are baseless” but agreed to make the payment in the interest of finally putting the matter behind him.

Five Democrats voted yes on three of four articles of impeachment against Clinton. Democrats in the Senate unanimously voted to acquit. He was literally one vote short of being removed from office.

Since that time, Hillary Clinton and her coterie of defenders have spared no opportunity to smear the women who nearly cost her husband his presidency. Even normally friendly James Carville said of Paula Jones:

“If you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find…”

He was paraphrasing Hillary, who previously called Gennifer Flowers “trailer trash.”

Now Republican supporters of Roy Moore can be heard echoing Hillary on the now-five women who have gone on record with stories of how 30-something district attorney Moore showed them special attention as teenagers, one only 14 whom he allegedly fondled.

That’s galaxies short of what Bill Clinton was accused of doing–flat out rape. The fact that Clinton had extramarital sexual relations is not in dispute. Clinton is easily one of the most prolific serial sexual abusers ever to inhabit the White House. While the allegations made of Clinton were covered by the press (he was president, what else could they do?), none of the full-throated denials and smearing of these women was ever truly condemned.

Both Democrats and Republicans have been guilty of playing team sports with people’s lives–lives that have been profoundly affected by people in power. Whether all the stories are true or not, coming out publicly to accuse a president, or a Senate candidate and former Alabama chief justice, is no bed of roses.

If the leftwing media is going to treat the five women who have made allegations about Roy Moore as saints, then they all owe Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey a huge apology.

Democrats are guilty of apologizing for Clinton when they shouldn’t have. At the same time, looking back at the smear campaign against the Clintons shows we can’t treat the feminist injunction to “believe women” as absolute.

Mrs. Broaddrick has since been vocal about what she claims happened to her at the hands of Bill and Hillary, making her pinned tweet:

On the day in 1998, the Republican-led House voted to proceed with impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton on charges of lying under oath and obstruction of justice. As part of a sexual harassment lawsuit, the president had denied having the affair.

The agreement, which will be filed with a federal appeals court considering whether the lawsuit should go forward, requires the president to pay within 60 days.

That nobody wants to hear from them, that nobody wants to believe them, and nobody wants to have the comprehensive services that they need. Clinton’s remarks reflect the consensus of many feminists who believe activities like examining evidence and interviewing witnesses before pronouncing guilt are tantamount to denying that rape exists.

Roy Moore must pass the Cemetery Gates, but Al Franken is a progressive so he is OK

Published

on

I would be cool with both Roy Moore and Al Franken walking passed the cemetery gates, but it should not surprise any moral-minded freedom liberty loving conservative that Franken gets a pass.  Even from the Great Mitch McConnell.  Yes, there is a double standard, but what matters is that the progressives and their collaborators continue to maintain power in our government.

Shame that its only Moore that must pass those dreaded gates of the dead.

Meanwhile, we have to push for Article V and/or new political party to take the place of the do nothing Republican Party.  Otherwise, it will have to take a civil war to get our freedom back and I don’t know if we are strong enough for even that.  Don’t get me started about Edward “Ted” Kennedy who truly got away with murder.  At least it kept Ted out of the White House, but I doubt would have been the case now.  What matters is that we create the kingdom on Earth and prove God a liar and that we don’t need his help or his forgiveness or above all honor his ‘oppressive’ law.

Until further notice, I stand by Roy Moore.

The only seeming consensus from his colleagues and party leaders is that Franken should go before the Senate Ethics Committee.

“Between 2007 and 2016, the Senate Ethics Committee imposed zero sanctions against anyone. Zero — despite 613 allegations and 75 preliminary investigations. Zero,” Shapiro wrote Thursday.

Whoopi is right about the behavior of UCLA Basketball players in China

Whoopi Goldberg

I’m not a big fan of Whoopi Goldberg, okay but I have to tell you that I agree with her regarding the following statement.  This is in regards to a couple of UCLA basketball players who thought they could take something from a store in China and not pay for it.

You embarrassed your families, you embarrassed the country, and you embarrassed the president. Now I’m not a big fan of the president, but the fact that he had to call and get your asses out of there is not anything to be proud of or think is cool.  If this isn’t the stupidest thing a young person has done, particularly if you’re over six-feet tall, and black… is this just the ridiculous stupidity of youth?

Let me add one more thing. You’re an embarrassment to UCLA itself, and their athletic department as well.  Now I am not a big fan of those who run academia, but if these jerks are given the right punishment, I shall give the university credit and praise for doing it.  All right UCLA, the ball is in your court.  Do something right for once.

The Obamacare Debacle: Why we need a second political party

Published

on

By

Sometimes you simply hope that your predictions will be wrong and that events will miraculously turn out differently; unfortunately, this is not one of those times. Most people with a modicum of common sense anticipated that the Republicans would now take the blame for the troubles of Obamacare, and that has come to pass.  The aphorism ‘You broke it, you bought it’ comes to mind, and while somewhat unfair to the situation, perception is reality in the world of politics.

Tear it down and start over.

While not endeavoring to reign blows upon a deceased equine, this is why the Republican party needed to keep its promise on Obamacare. It’s also the reason why it’s time to sweep away the old and begin anew with a brand new second major political party. That phrase was deliberately used because it has become quite evident that the Republican and Democratic parties have started to merge in far too many ways.

The Obamacare debacle is a prime illustration of this unfortunate merging. O’Sullivan’s First Law explains this to a fair degree since the denizens of a certain party will – over time – want to keep the bureaucratic levers of power with the false idea that they can have it run more efficiently. Besides the simple expedient of term limits, a new party could start anew with a mandate to avoid this political trap.

An illustration from the world of engineering seems more than appropriate in this instance. There are times when a machine or structure has become so riddled with worn out or failed components that it is far better to simply scrap or tear it down and build something from scratch. The aphorism is to start with a clean sheet of paper such that the old assumptions and constructs are swept away in favor of something entirely new and innovative. “We’ve always done it this way” is replaced with questioning skepticism with regard to what works, and what doesn’t.

Existing components that have proven to be of service can be utilized in the new construct but only if they meet certain criteria, not simply because they are carried along with everything else of the old. By the same token, members of the old party can become a vital part of the new but only if they are up to the task.

The final word on the Republican party.

It is more than likely that the people responsible for that bureaucratic mess will use it to good political advantage against those who opposed it in the first place. We should be getting rid of governmental interference in the free market, but instead will see a complete control with national socialist healthcare [i.e., the ‘single payer’ deception].

There is no other choice than to limit the damage now with a new party that will stay true to conservative principles. The results of the alternative are too horrible to contemplate.
