Moral bankruptcy???

Who’s next???

Weinstein, a senior executive at Amazon, O’Reilly, Tambour, Halperin, Rose, Franken, Spacey, Conyers, more Hollyweird types, Clinton redux, another NPR executive, Garrison Keillor, and now Lauer…

And Moore’s accusers are no longer on the front page, but the fallout is ‘rather’ interesting.

The Dems leadership (Pelosi) are continuing to ‘excuse’ the behavior, BUT…

A bill was introduced today to expose all the secret settlements, and get that information out.

“Enough is enough,” Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, one of the bill’s sponsors, said. “For far too long sexual predators have roamed freely through the halls of Congress — the people’s house  — while survivors of sexual harassment and assault have essentially been isolated, bullied and shamed into silence.”

Full article, HERE. Interestingly, this effort is being led by a young female Dem!

And apparently there is/was yet another set of hush funds, HERE.

The oddity is that the pedofile cases seem to have ‘disappeared’ from the news, but I’m betting they will be back, and Hollyweird will have some house cleaning to do in short order.

It seems the swamp is a LOT deeper than anyone knew… Personally, I think there should be some recalls starting up, and the silent majority voting them out. As the old saying goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely…

And it’s sadly being proved true, yet again,  not only in politics, but the MSM, the entertainment industry, and big business.

Personally, I find the behavior abhorrent, and I think every damn one of them needs to go to jail for their actions, regardless of who they are, where they are from, or who they represent.

  1. I agree. But everyone is acting like this is a new thing. Young starlets since the silent films have had to do the couch auditions in hopes of the big break. And why are the coming out now? Money! Now it seems that it is an honor to say you were molested. Part of the soiled brave. I honestly believe that the majority of them willing spread’em for the reward.

  2. Yup, Democrat – Republican – Liberal – Conservative – Progressive and others who have committed acts like this need not only be fired but prosecuted to full extent of law, just like any one else who has committed such acts.

  3. I have a problem with the current dictum of all men = evil; all women = blameless. Absolutes are dangerous when applied to only half of the human race.

  4. Note the media that’s having such a field day reporting all this are the same people who ridiculed the Vice President’s policy of never being alone with a woman who’s not his wife.

    • There you go. My Pastor at church has the same policy, and it had nothing to do with his moral character and reputation. A person in his position had to be beyond reproach at all times, so – never be alone with anyone.

  5. Seems to me that if the program to pay off/shut up, women who accuse Congress critters of sexual improprieties is opened up and the payoffs revealed, then we pretty much get a new congress, not a bad thing. Add to that the fact that the Democrats will be reborn as the Communist Party of the USA, what’s not to like?

    • Maybe not. If you remember back to ABSCAM, so many Congressmen got caught taking bribes that Congress circled the wagons and said nothing until the media spotlight moved on to something else.

      Note that ABSCAM itself was a response to complaints, accusations, and charges so numerous for so long that the FBI finally bestirred itself to investigate.

      And for that matter, this isn’t the first time around for mass sexual impropriety in Congress. They rode it out last time, and there were probably others before that.

  6. Funny you should mention Hollywood pedophiles. Milo has a book out next year; the related website just went live. Here’s from the blurb at dangerous.com, his publishing company’s website.

    “Harnessing an exclusive network of high-profile sources, DESPICABLE takes readers on a journey into the sordid, sexually abusive, hypocritical world of Hollywood and the connected worlds of music, the media and Democrat politics. The book will share first-person accounts of abuse of actors, musicians and other friends in the author’s address book who will, in DESPICABLE, name their abusers. DESPICABLE is the true story of Hollywood that only Milo could tell, taking aim not just at Hollywood’s abusers, but at the women who protected them.”

    Milo’s shy, retiring nature will probably make it difficult for him to get much publicity.

  7. Yep. It is a sh*t storm. Crazy. I will not hold my breath on any new policies or legislation coming out which will make this issue any better. It’s all smoke and mirrors in my opinion. Why am I so jaded? Hmmm…let me count the manila folders that once occupied my desk. But…let them carry on and go forth to good deeds. I hope they are successful, but I think it will all blow over once they expose (no pun intended) a few more and it just becomes numbing news like mass shootings. Boy. I have a very cynical attitude.

  8. One thing has changed, tho. You have to be extremely careful how you talk to people, how you work , and all that. I think working from home on the computer is a getting better sounding every day.

  9. Oh, and you should not grope people without permission. And definitely keep your hands and your privates to yourself. Hey…are multiple comments considered harassment?

  10. One problem I have with all of this is that the accuser is automatically believed, and the accused is guilty and should be sentenced in the next five minutes. Well, most times the accused is sentenced in the next five minutes, but the caveat of cruel and unusual punishment gets in the way.

    Having been unjustly accused of sexual misconduct in the past, I can tell you that there’s nothing quite like it. My first thought was that my jellyfish of a boss was joking. He wasn’t. When I discovered he was serious, and that I wouldn’t be allowed to confront my accuser, I demanded a reputable witness and lit into him with everything I had – verbally speaking. My accuser said that I stared down her blouse, which was not true. What was true was that I was a new hire, she had protected ‘her’ PC with a password which no one had, and which I demanded she turn over to me. I later demanded that she remove the password protection on her PC immediately and never reinstall it. She hated my authority, and so complained. Not about me performing my job, oh no. About something that could get me fired.

    The complainant was terminated a few months later for gross lack of performance. She was a secretary who insisted on being called an administrative assistant, and who felt secretarial duties were beneath her. What a jerkette.

    This entire witch hunt is headed in the same direction. Sure, some of the complaints are probably legit, but I’m betting about half are prompted by women who are hostile to their ex-employer for one spiteful reason or another.

  11. Pretty much agree with Mad Jack. I think most of us here have taken the same oath to the same Constitution. I cannot emphasize enough that all the “ACCUSATIONS” are despicable and the violator and should be dealt with in the harshest form of law WHEN FOUND GUILTY. In our form of government and law everyone has a right to confront their accuser. NO ONE has been found guilty in anything anywhere but the court of public opinion. I am not defending any of the accused of anything, all I am saying is if we convict on accusations no matter how revolting the accusation is, are we any better than Germany in the 30’s or the Sov’s under anyone from Lenin to Breznev?

  12. All- Thanks for the comments. MJ/George, these seem to go beyond just accusations, since there were actual cash settlements… But your point IS valid!

    Posted from my iPhone.

  13. Pass the bill which would expose who is paying off allegations. Folks who are making settlements to keep things quiet do not do that if they are innocent of the allegation.

    Let the rest of us know who is paying out our tax dollars for hush money.

    The vast majority of women in this country who have worked in business…any business… has run into one of these slime balls. At least once. Which make us respect and like the gentlemen we work with all the more.

    The politicians forget that 51% of the population is female. Or maybe they haven’t. If word gets out about who has got “Russian Hands and Roman fingers”, my guess is their days in the people’s house are limited.

    Morals are such an old fashioned concept these days. Right along with manners. Both need to come back into style.

  14. Moores accusers are being exposed one by one. And yes, this is a big problem – the automatic assumption that all accusations are valid. I foresee innocent men other than Moore being taken down.

    It’s wild, though. It’s happening so fast that it’s new names every morning. I wonder if bookies are taken bets on who is next?

  15. Some years back I was having a few drinks with a group of attorneys, CPAs, and the like. We were strangers to each other and just happened to congregate in the bar, having a drink. This is one story I heard from an attorney:

    In this town there’s a twenty-something man of color (negro) who is unemployed most of the year. He lives on social programs of one kind or another. When the Christmas rush hits and the stores start advertising for extra help, he applies as a sales clerk and gets himself hired. He works hard for a month or so, then he develops a stutter – followed by poor work habits. He gets himself fired, but claims that the store fired him because he’s black and has a stutter, which is discrimination. Rather than take him to court, the store settles for $500 or so. That’s his Christmas bonus. He then goes right back to unemployment, welfare, whatever.

    This guy pulls the same stunt every single year, but it costs more to fight him than to buy him off.

    And that, I think, is what may be happening here. It’s more trouble to fight it than it’s worth, even if you win. Just pay her off without admitting any guilt, and that’s the end of it.
