Tens of Thousands of Pics of Franken

Unlike some of the others, Franken has spent his adult life in front of cameras. There are no doubt literally tens of thousands of photos of him over the years, INCLUDING the "harassment" or "groping" incidents complained of recently.

Funny how, out of all the tens of thousands of photos of him and fans, not ONE of them shows him groping or trying to kiss an unwilling woman. Including the photos of the women who had recent complaints against him. Even those photos don't show him trying to kiss them or groping them, or touching boobs or rear ends. Funny, huh?

Just sayin'. A little investigation would have helped.

Quite a few are demanding Franken resign.

They are:

Sen. Patty Murray of Washington (the 1st one, highest ranking F senator)
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii
Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri
Sen. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire
Sen. Kamala Harris of California
Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin
Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota)
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
Sen. Cantwell (D-Wash.)
Sen. Stabenow (D-D.C.)
Sen. Jackie Speier
Sen. Hassan (NH)
Sen. Duckworth (D-IL)

Sen. Schumer (D-NY)
Sen. Bob Casey, D-Penn.
Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio
Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. (et tu, Leahy?)
Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore.
Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.
Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind.
Sen. Heinrich (D-NM)
Sen. Bennett (D-CO)
Sen. Wyden (D-OR)
Sen. Carper (D-Del)
Sen. Casey (D-PA)
Sen. Durbin (D-IL)
Sen. Udall (D-NM)
Sen. Tester (D-Montana)
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ)
Sen. Peters (D-MI)
Sen. Murphy (D-CT)

Sen. Mitch McConnell, (R)
Sen. Steve Daines of Montana (the women of the Senate have spoken)
Sen. Thune (R)
Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) ("both Franken & Moore need to find something else to do.)

Sen. King (I-ME)
Sen. Sanders (VT)

DNC Chair Tom Perez

Supports an ethics investigation:
Sen. Portman (R-OH)
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC)

"ME, TOO." I have been harassed, groped, and raped.

I have been harassed in the past, my boobs grabbed (which I would call groping), and there was a rape years ago.

As for Franken...are you fuckin' KIDDIN' ME? "He put his hand on my waist & grabbed flesh" is what an "accuser" calls groping? Are you f'in kiddin' me?

"He tried to kiss me!" ARE YOU F'IN KIDDIN' ME? (BTW, he says this is categorically untrue...her story is preposterous.)

Some women may need to read storie of REAL harassment, groping, and rape, to understand what it is. Watch the television accounts of Roy Moore's accusers.

Most of these women accusing Franken are anonymous. I can't see their televised allegations, and neither can you. We don't even know who they are. I wouldn't have believed Cosby's accusers if they were anonymous and said "He tried to kiss me" and that's it.

This is a shark frenzy. The sharks are going bananas eating their own, in the frenzy of the blood-filled waters, without regard to truth or logic or facts. One wonders why. Why throw their lion in the water to be eaten? Jealousy? Maybe so. The Senate is a club. It's possible that the one who shone during the hearings and became the most popular Senator in the nation...his name was bandied about as a possible Presidential candidate. It's very plausible there's some jealousy there, and some do not want interference with their chosen one(s) for the next Presidential election. Just trying to guess at this nonsensical approach.

Mitch McConnell: Al Franken should resign

Source: Washington Examiner

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., should resign from the Senate after seven women accused the Democratic senator of sexual misconduct.

“The daily barrage of allegations of sexual misconduct against Senator Franken are extremely concerning to all of us in the Senate,” the Kentucky Republican said in a statement. “While the Senate Ethics Committee is reviewing these serious allegations, it now appears that Sen. Franken has lost the support of his colleagues, and most importantly, his constituents.

“I do not believe he can effectively serve the people of Minnesota in the U.S. Senate any longer.”

Reminder: McConnell thinks the people of AL should decide if child molester Roy Moore should be in the Senate, but he thinks Franken (who punked a fellow conservative female entertainter with a rude pic, and who put his hand on the waist of a woman who requested a pic with him) should resign.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Up is down, and down is up, in this wacky world of politics. Sheesh.

I'm thinking Franken will resign, now that Schumer has said he should.

How does Franken continue to work in the Senate, when the leader wants you out?

And yet, Schumer has not called for Trump to resign.

How young boys are taught to view (harass?) women?

So I'm having dinner at Dave & Buster's about 7 years ago. A divorced career woman in Dallas, TX. I'm with my visiting older brother, who has brought his grandson on a vacation trip to see me and have some fun in Dallas. My nephew was about 7.

So we're having dinner, when the waitress drops off water, introduces herself & says she'll be back to take our orders.

There ...right there...ensues the behind-the-back harassment. My brother (who really does like women as people) and his grandson start giggling and commenting on the waitress and her various body parts. They think she's a babe with good boobs, giggle giggle.

This is one way it's done, IMO. How young boys are taught from an early age that women, whatever their vocation or place in life, whatever they are doing, are in the end..a sex toy for men. Primarily, or maybe solely in some instances.

Now they THINK she can't hear, I suppose, although they don't attempt to whisper. Having been a waitress in my young days, I know it's possible that she does hear.

So do I do something? Say something? Become a wet blanket, dropping a sour note on their good time?

In this instance, I did. I said something like telling them not to talk about our waitress that way, that she's trapped in doing her job and can't do anything about it, so not cool. She's just someone trying to earn a living. I looked directly at my brother. Their giggles subsided, while he says, "Yeah, well..." Then they changed the subject. The wet blanket has spoken.

My take is that my brother thought it was fine, because they were flattering her, not criticizing her appearance. I didn't say anything about that, because I wasn't having a long, drawn out discussion about it. But I was mortified that my brother was setting such an example for an impressionable young boy. Teaching him that no matter what girls did, wherever they were, whatever they were doing, their ultimate real purpose was to exist for them, the guys. There was no need even to be discreet about it. It didn't matter that the girl can't do anything about it. A belief that they had a right to say anything, and as long as it wasn't negative, she should feel flattered by their attention. Because they, the guys, are what matters.

I hope I made some small difference in my nephew's viewpoint. I doubt it, but I can hope. I think we women do need to speak up, when we do see things like that.

Deja Vu. "Dean Pleads Guilty in Deal; Will Aid the Prosecution"


WASHINGTON, Oct. 19—John W. Dean 3d, the former counsel to President Nixon, pleaded guilty today to plotting to cover up the truth about the Watergate break‐in.

He made his plea as part of a bargain with the special Watergate prosecutor, Archibald Cox, under which Dean agreed to be a prosecution witness in future proceedings against alleged participants in the cover‐up — including, potentially, against President Nixon.

Mr. Cox allowed Dean to plead guilty irk Federal District Court here to a single felony count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and defraud the United States, punishable by a maximum five‐year prison term and a $10,000 fine, with sentencing deferred until the bargain is kept.

Mr. Cox also promised not to prosecute Dean for any other Watergate‐related crime, reserving only the right to prosecute the lawyer for perjury.

Watergate, the Final Toll:

**one presidential resignation

**one vice-presidential resignation – although Agnew’s crimes were unrelated to Watergate

**40 government officials indicted or jailed

**H.R. Haldeman and John Erlichman (White House staff), resigned 30 April 1973, subsequently jailed

**John Dean (White House legal counsel), sacked 30 April 1973, subsequently jailed

**John Mitchell, Attorney-General and Chairman of the Committee to Re-elect the President (CREEP), jailed

**Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy (ex-White House staff), planned the Watergate break-in, both jailed

**Charles Colson, special counsel to the President, jailed

**James McCord (Security Director of CREEP), jailed

It's like seeing the current events in a mirror, when looking at what happened in Watergate. Same political party, too. Some things never change...except that I hope the end results are the same.

Is the ACA mandate removal still in the tax bill? I haven't read it's been pulled.


Claire McCaskill: We got a list of amendments to Tax Bill...from LOBBYISTS


This is horrible. These aren't amendments by legislators, even, she says. They are by lobbyists.

Note that there is a deduction for "religious instruction tuition," that Hatch added. OMG. The cost of private religious schooling..not only do they get some public education funds in some instances. Now they'd get a tax deduction? Separation of church and state?

In Hate Radio Land....

I was flipping radio stations in the car today and heard less than 2 minutes of a hate radio show (sounded like Rush Limpballs)...all I heard was Obama Obama Obama...

They're trying to stick the Flynn crime on Obama.

But cool Obama covered his a_s. He fired Flynn, and told Trump not to hire him. So Trump, in his anti-Obama everything practice, hires Flynn and appoints him to the most sensitive important security position in the cabinet.

Say what????
