Sexual Harassment: Weinstein, Spacey, et al and creepy stuff of Joe Biden **edited

I’ve kept silent about the Weinstein/Spacey/add a name here harassment claims because I smell something rotten.  These are rich powerful men who usually get away with harassment…so I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak, to see why this is coming out now.

There’s a reason, folks, because the Cabal is controlling the media now so if you are seeing something prominently displayed, it’s either punishment for not going along with the Cabal or it is to distract you from something terrible going on behind the scenes…

So today I click on yahoo news, and there is Joe Biden trying to yet again to make himself out to be some sort of proponent for women.  After the videos I have viewed recently on Anita Hill and Biden, he makes me sick.

The video below is a compilation of creepy moments with Joe Biden.  Pay close attention to where his hands are, how he continually puts his hands around the women’s waists.  NOTE TO BIDEN AND OTHERS: PUTTING YOUR HANDS ON A WOMAN’S WAIST IS AN INTIMATE GESTURE AND IS NOT WELCOME UNLESS YOU ARE HER MATE!!

Biden also continually strokes the women/girls hair and inappropriately kissing women on the cheek, as if they were family members.  He also continually admonishes the young girls, who aren’t even thinking about boys at this point, to not date until they are thirty!

So Biden clearly does not know boundaries and he sure the hell should not be consulted for rules regarding such.  He deliberately thwarted Anita Hill in order to curry favor with George H.W. Bush.  That alone should negate anything this man says.  It makes me angry that I believed in Biden when he advocated for the VAWA (Violence Against Women Act).  The joke is on me and other women who trusted a man who did not deserve it.

 

Here’s another one that just sends chills down the spine at the openly molesting of the little girls.   The young red haired girl is clearly uncomfortable with whatever Biden is saying to her (by the way, there are many videos asking WTH he was whispering in her ear — he was whispering so low that none of the microphones could pick it up).  This poor girl reminded me of me when I was young and creepy men used to do that sort of thing to me.  I reacted the same way as she did.  I very distinctly remember hiding behind my mother’s skirts when men would wink at me.  Even as a five year old, my instincts were telling me to get away from these men.  Unfortunately, we women are told to be nice and friendly and dismiss our instincts…to our own peril.

There’s also a video out of Jeff Sessions swatting Biden’s hands away from his granddaughter.  I don’t care for Sessions, but I admire his protecting his granddaughter from being molested.

So I don’t know about Roy Moore….it just feels wrong about what is happening to him.  I tend to believe women when they say they have been raped or molested, but my instincts are telling me that this woman is not telling the truth.  I could be wrong, but it just feels like he is being attackedRed flags on this are:  every single media outlet is on it –that is a huge flag to everyone when they are ALL saying the same thing since the media is controlled by the CABAL now.

**edited:  12.7.17 — the more I read of Roy Moore, the more I feel that he is no innocent victim.  So I amend this post by saying that I am not sure why he is a human ping-pong between conservative and liberal viewpoints, but I feel less sure about my initial concerns that he was being bullied.  As a matter of fact, it seems that with the addition of Matt Lauer (sp) and Al Franken, that it is now being used for goals other than to seek justice for women.  Matt Lauer was known to be a sexual predator.  They even joked about it at roasts, collectively humiliating Ann Curry by racist Asian women jokes.  #$%&!  So his firing had NOTHING to do with sexual harassment…and probably had everything to do with the fact that their ratings were going down and he was waaaay overpaid.

The second red flag is when I was flipping through the channels and landed on Faux news with the four women talking on Outnumbered.  Faux is trying so hard to make it look like they are giving women a voice, when these women are wearing skin tight dresses with the hemlines up to there, high heels, make-up, and clearly are sexualizing their positions. This flies in the face of respect and honor of women in a sacred way.

One was saying that she “would not want someone in Congress with these allegations against them…”  This sentence alone makes me think the allegations are false and they don’t want him in Congress because he is not going to go along with the rest of them.

As an American citizen, you are guaranteed the right to appear in court and face your accusers and be allowed to present your own evidence against the allegations.  It’s called justice.  Allegations are just that — somebody saying something against someone else.  Without the 6th Amendment, anyone could say anything against another without fear of being punished for lying about someone else.  It’s also in the Commandments:  Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness.  How wise God is…

All of this brings up Anita Hill, who was horribly and relentlessly harassed by Clarence Thomas while employed by him.  She went through hell after coming forward with her testimony of the graphic nature of the harassment.  Incredibly, there are those who said that she changed everything.  No. No, she did not.  The viciousness that is still evident today if you read the comments under the youtubes with her testifying, was so awful that it made it even harder for women to come forward.  It gave a green light for men to not only go on harassing women, but not to fear punishment because women knew they would pay dearly if they breathed a word…so it was highly unlikely they would come forward.  But if they did, men had new means of discrediting her.  That alone is why I am so skeptical of Weinstein, et al, now being called out for their behavior.

Joe Biden was key to the outcome of the Senate hearing on Thomas.  A documentary about it was on youtube, and I have been trying the find it the past two days, with no luck.  In it, Biden behind the scenes persuades other Senators to vote in favor of Thomas’ confirmation, so he can curry favor with then President George H.W. Bush.  Biden throws Anita Hill under the bus…and we see by the above videos that Biden doesn’t know boundaries any better than Clarence Thomas.  It’s the wolf guarding the hen house…

Anita Hill’s opening statement when she protested Clarence Thomas’ appointment to the Supreme Court:

Abusive men don’t take NO for an answer.  Abusive men will continue to abuse a woman FOREVER when they fail to see women as sacred creations of God that deserve honor and respect.

Daniele Watts

Has claimed that she was handcuffed because of racism.   She was kissing her white boyfriend in public and was handcuffed….when she refused to give identification.

I don’t know if race is involved.  I know that this nearly happened to me in Fort Wayne when I refused to give my social security number or my birthdate to an out of control fire fighter.

She was absolutely within her Fourth Amendment rights not to give her identification if she was not being arrested.  I have paralegal training, and the attorney teaching the class on the Fourth Amendment told us that unless we were under arrest, we did not have to give out any information, and did not have to have our persons or our vehicles searched without our permission.  He said all the client had to do was ask if they were under arrest.

This Amendment was put into place to protect us from a police state–so we would not become Russia, China, or Nazi Germany.

In my case, I was the Fire Captain of my five story building.  I was the one who jumped out of bed at 2 a.m. when the fire alarm went off.  I would communicate to the fire dept and to our maintenance on-call person that everything was okay…or not.

On this particular day,  someone had set off the alarm three times that day.  I called off the fire dept each time, but for some reason, they showed up anyway at the third instance.

I was already back in my apartment when I got a knock on the door from one of the residents telling me the fire dept was here and wanted to speak with me.

The fire fighter immediately began accusing me of setting off the alarm, of making a false report, and other stuff that i can’t remember at the moment.  He said he was going to shut this building down.  Then he demanded to know my soc. sec. number.  I refused.  He then demanded my birthdate, which I also refused, as I had done before with the other fire fighters.  Alarm bells were going off in my head by this guy’s irrational behavior, and I started to walk away.

He threatens that he is going to call the police as I was walking down the hall.  He does.

Three squad cars pull up within minutes. Three.

They, too, were bullying me into giving up personal information that they had no right to.  I didn’t set off any alarm, only reported what I saw, as was required of my job.

This went on for an hour.  They intimidated me to the point I was in tears.  I finally had to give this arrogant, irrational fire fighter my birthdate…because they threatened me with jail if I did not.

Afterwards, the police officer sarcastically said, “There, was that so hard?”

I said that it was none of the firefighter’s business.

He then shot back that I should not be the Fire Captain if I did not want to give out that info.

I had been a reliable Captain. I gave up nights and weekends to be in the building when the staff was gone.  I sure the hell didn’t need this grief.

And I’m not down on the fire fighters.  They’re good guys, for  the most part.

One of them even quietly thanked me for standing up to this creep.

And, no, racism wasn’t involved in this–I am white, the fire fighter and all of the police man were white.  It’s a civil rights issue,  for sure.

I beg to differ..

President Obama was featured on MSNBC talking about the sexual assaults on college campuses.

One thing that bothers me is the focus on one area of a woman’s life….

But the thing that bothered me the most was when the President said that nations that treat women unequally…do poorly.

I beg to differ.

Our nation being one that has thrived because of women being treated as second class.

When you’re second class, it is easier for employers to justify paying you less…because you’re a woman and your work is inferior, or simplistic (anybody could do *that*), or seen as demeaning (cleaning houses).

The wealthiest of corporations have been built by paying low wages, mostly to women workers…Walmart being the best example of that.

President Obama should understand that, more than most, because of his African American ancestry.  Corporations also were built by paying blacks much less than whites.  Plantations are the best example of that.

Related to this is the Columbia University student who has been carrying her mattress around the school in protest of the schools’ handling of her rape by a fellow student…who still attends the university.

And the NFL spouse speaking out on the code of silence.

Happy Labor Day, Mom

Wow. what a great piece.

When I first saw the title, I thought it was going to be a piece on the unsung workforce of women who take care of the home and children…with nary an acknowledgement by law or wages…but I was pleasantly surprised that even though it was about a mother who works outside the home, it held such a great depth and context.

I disagree with the author’s assertion, however, that the education “reformers” don’t seem to grasp the hard-won battles women have had to fight for the same rights that men enjoyed without resistance….

…the “reformers” know EXACTLY what they are doing.  They know that the teacher’s unions have protected working women with equal pay for the same work performed as men teachers, with protection of being dismissed for asserting the same equal rights enjoyed by men such as being able to be married, have children, have reasonable work hours and good pay.  You have to remember who the “reformers” are and their indifference towards women, or worse, loathing of women.

(By a weird circumstance, I belonged briefly to the American Federation of Teachers and was amazed at their strength, unity, and benefits.    It was like nothing I had seen before. )

 

 

 

The fallout in Ferguson

When I saw the video on MSNBC Friday of Michael Brown stealing from a store, and shoving the clerk by the throat…and then threatening him with more of it…I had to take a step back.  I knew that if I came on here, I would say something I’d regret because I feel that I was played for a chump.

And then I hear on the news yesterday morning that they trashed the convenience store that Michael stole cigars from.

Outrageous.  Now the owner of the store has been victimized again.  Does he/she deserve that?

I watched Melissa Harris-Perry this morning, and got upset again.  I know this is close to home for her, but to deny Michael’s criminal behavior and how that played a roll in what happened is disingenuous. She insisted that people’s rights were being violated by the curfew.  Don’t the people who own businesses there also deserve to be protected?  They are not saying folks cannot protest at all–they are protesting during the day.  With the looting, I feel the curfew is justified.  No matter how angry you are, that does not give you the right to steal.  Nor is being poor give you a right to steal.  I can speak to that because I’m poor and been on food stamps, so I’ve felt the sting of people’s prejudice.

It upsets me…especially because of what happened to me in Fort Wayne.  Flashbacks of how I was essentially shunned by the black folk in the building after reporting the harassment of one of the black men.  He was evicted.  Others came forward after I filed my report–other women….black women–were also intimidated and harassed by him.  Some of them just accepted it as “just the way things are” and refused to file a report (probably afraid she would be shunned).  Another black lady whom had run the cafeteria reduced cost meal program was intimidated by him so much that she just gave him free food.  I suspect that the other black folk came down on her for speaking out–she left not six months after the guy was evicted.  The others didn’t care what this guy had done–and that disturbs me to this day.

I now question the validity of Michael’s friend who was with him when he robbed the convenience store…he should have come forward with this information from the start.  The fact that he and everyone else kept it hidden speaks volumes.

Do I think the officer was justified in shooting Michael multiple times? Hell no.

We have yet to hear what happened, but if the officer was in fear of his life, that is the only justification.   The convenience store video lends credibility to the officer stating that Michael struck him, causing his face to swell.  And perhaps he was trying to get the officer’s gun…I’m not as inclined to believe Michael’s friend’s account of what happened.

I’m hoping that in the coming weeks, we get at the truth.

 

 

 

 

 

The words of third grader…

….only they’re uttered by a leader of a country…or I should say, the state-controlled media…

Actually, the title is an insult to all third graders.  My apologies.

I mean, really…your lack of intellect is showing.  Not only that, but the ad hominem attack only shows that you have nothing of substance against the person you’re attacking.

Classless.

 

Obama High School and Affirmative Action

Fred Klonsky posted his viewpoint on Barack Obama College Preparatory School and Obama’s silence on a Supreme Court decision on Affirmative Action.

President Obama, however much I disagree with his education policies, is entitled to his opinion…whether it be for or against Affirmative Action.  I presume he is for it, but chose not to speak out at this particular decision.  I really don’t recall him speaking out on much regarding Supreme Court decisions— so because he’s black, he should speak out on this particular decision?

Perhaps I’m misinterpreting things…but this piece just struck me wrong.

As a side note~ Cabrini Green?  Really?  That was the housing project that was famously featured when former Chicago Mayor Jane Byrne *cough* moved in….the press was all over it…but what they forgot to tell people was that she wasn’t moving in as in moving all her household…but rather, she kinda sorta stayed there one night a week./snark

Or perhaps it was a few hours in the daytime./snarkier

Or perhaps she just drove past the place…on her way to her real home…./snarkiest

We need jobs, not eggs.  Funny how it’s been thirty years and not much has changed, eh?

Oh, wait…

Rahm builds an elite high school on this historical spot….not only do you not get jobs, but you get thrown out.
