Crazy Right? 

He’s come unhinged again, but its not the Muslims or the Fake Fake Media or Obama’s birth certificate.   It’s Mikey Flynn and Russia! Russia! Russia!  Who is Mueller and Company gonna call next?  Its the great unknown and he has no control and the Prez is FREAKING OUT!!!    If only he could say, off with their heads!

The Prez is playing directly to his ever shrinking base. Some Ultra Conservatives who believe immigrants are the downfall of America especially Muslims who are inherently evil and wants to kill Americans.  Anyone named “Obama” cant be an American?

 

Trumpy Hate’s Joe Scarborough

If there is one name in news Prez Trump mentions over and over with so much venom its Joe Scarborough at MSNBC.   The truth is he wants the former and highly respected Congressman from Florida respect more than any other news personality.

The former conservative republican is highly respected by current and former politicians on both sides on the aisle.    He is less of a fan of his co-anchor and fiance Mika Brezinski who some consider a liberal democrat.

Yesterday the Prez in a tweet, floated a conspiracy theory surrounding the 2001 death of one of the congressional aides who worked for Joe Scarborough.

The Devil’s Messenger


Sarah Huckabee Sanders

 

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said it didn’t matter whether the anti-Muslim videos President Donald Trump retweeted on Wednesday morning were real.

These his retweets were widely condemned in the US but especially in Britain

Britain’s Prime Minister Teresa May condemned Trump, staying he was “wrong” to share videos by a group that “seeks to divide communities through their use of hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions.”

Trump in a tweet response .@Theresa_May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!

Some 1.8 million people in Britain have already signed a petition urging the government to rescind the invitation May made to Trump just weeks after his inauguration last January.
State visits are typically characterized by pomp and ceremony, and generally include a banquet with the Queen but one by Trump is unlikely to prove popular in Britain.

The Operating Hours of the Boys Club may change without notice

If your over 50 and currently employed your nights are a bit restless.   The world you knew changed a few months ago.   Women are coming forward with memories that spanned decades.  Their memories are clear and often detailed.   So you wake up in a small panic, was I inappropriate?  EVER?

The face of 66 year old Minnesota Senator Al Franken best represents a lot of baby boomers.   Did I?  Are there others?  How do you defend a brush or a touch (not grab) that took place 30 years ago ?

As a manager, I can clearly remember two female employees telling me they did not  want to be touched or hugged. I respected their wishes and there was no retaliation. Women rarely came forward in my years in management.  Are there women out there who feel that I was inappropriate in the 90’s or 2000? and what it the appropriate response?

There were members of the Boys Club who abused their power.  Everyone knew who they were and while you may not have been comfortable as they boasted about conquests you remained silent .

Throughout the years if a female staffer had a complaint you took it seriously.  But that was before the fall of 2017.

The question for many is why now?   If there was a problem in 2010 why wasn’t addressed in 2010. 

 

1991

It was sometime after the Anita Hill, Clarence Thomas hearings.  I was given a directive.  I was to personally spend the next few days speaking directly to employees about the company’s new sexual harassment policy.   There were no real directions, just a box of brochures and business cards.  This was the nineties, there were no smartphones or laptops.

My words brought confusion and concern.   Uttering those words “Sexual Harassment” resulted in many red faces. What do you mean sexual?    Is this from the union ?   No.  Should we contact the union?  You can if you like.   “If you ever feel uncomfortable for any reason by anyone you can call the number on the card 24 hours a day.

No one was quite sure what to do, one thing was clear, the company was serious.    Locations had five days to respond to any complaint and to forward all complaints to headquarters.  Failure to follow the new mandate would result in disciplinary action.

Before the mandate, there really wasn’t an official response to an individual who said he or she was being sexually harassed.  Quite often she was told someone would keep an eye out for her.   Yes, there were outdated guidelines from human resources  but the truth was no one was was equipped to respond to questions of sexual harassment.   It was my experience the victim wasn’t taken seriously.

2000 something

It has been a Boys club since the beginning of time.  The club had long resisted female members.   Once  you  became a member you quickly learned when to speak in the meeting and when to simply go along.

While you have never been inappropriate with a female, you know managers and professional who were.  In fact all the managers knew who the perpetrators were as many boasted about their actions.   As a member you may have participated in the banter as your male colleges have made comments about women who work for the company, you have laughed in the presence of female managers who seemed okay with the shenanigans, boys being boys.

A common question is why didn’t women speak up.  Why now?  

I was a black man wanting to move up.  I don’t speak for all black men or women.   When you a minority or a women the dance is very delicate as you move up the ladder.  Most clubs are filled with white men, with an occasional minority or woman. If your objective is an office upstairs, you played the game. You smiled when the boss or the majority of the room is being inappropriate.  Objecting could result in a delay in your ascension or halt it all together.

At a business dinner to honor our clients.    My boss loudly announced they were serving watermelon and which should make me happy!   Many of my colleagues  and clients were embarrassed.   Inside I was hurt and embarrassed, outside I was professional,”oh that guy”

I could have complained , could have sued the company, there were more than one hundred witnesses.   But it would have ended my career.   From that moment on, I would have been branded.   Nice guy, but!    Didn’t he sue? Didn’t he file a complaint?  I’ve been in those meetings,so I knew what the consequences were.

Women know this all too well.  They are outnumbered in the Boys clubs. So when one of the boys comments on the tits on the new girl in the mail room, they may smile uncomfortably or  look away.

Fall 2017

The abuse of power in the Boys Club is well known. Abuse comes in many forms, it is fueled by power.    From the fast food manager asking for  sexual favors in exchange for hours.   To department heads who s access to slush funds to pay for and elected members of our government who have made it very difficult for someone to complain.

The abuse by some of the members of the Boys Club was tolerated  if the member was generating income for the organization.   Beginning with the 100+millions in payouts from the Fox News Corporation followed by the  Weinstein scandal the stakeholders /shareholders declared there weren’t  any sacred cows.  NBC’s  Matt Lauer was being fired today.

Some members of the Boys Club are in shock.  The abuse of power is  so deeply ingrained in the culture.   After Donald Trump infamous Access America tape was released. some of his supporters dismissed it as being simply locker room talk.  His son, Eric, said it’s just what happens when men hang out together.  Its simply, Boys being Boys.

There are many men who believe while these actions against women were wrong.  They view the punishment to severe.

The Mee too movement is a beginning, however real change will not take place until the Boys Clubs becomes the Boys and Girls Club.  The institution has to change.

  There needs to be more than just one or two women setting policy.  One or two women in a sea of men.  This change needs to take place today.  The irons are hot!

Gobble Gobble Gobble: Texas Congressman Joe Barton Say those are his giblets on social media but he may be a victim of revenge porn


Joe Barton, seen during a 2010 House committee hearing on the role of BP in the Deepwater Horizon Explosion and Oil Spill.

 

“Well Hello There” 

joe-barton-300x225

Elected in 1988 he is the most senior Representative in Texas, Dallas area constituents has seen a lot of Congressman Joe Barton in the last few days.   You don’t have to look hard, he’s everywhere on Social Media!  In the last few years he has sent several explicit pictures and messages to a women he was interested in .   Those pictures have made it on to the net.

Embarrassment 

 While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women. Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down.

Before the grand Reveal?

This women who he was involved with( years before his divorce from his second wife) has received  many explicit photos, videos and messages from him throughout the years

Anger

A woman whom the Washington Post did not identify told the newspaper of Barton’s threat over the sexually explicit photographs, videos and messages he had sent to her. The woman described sexual encounters and contact extending over five years, beginning with her posting a message on Barton’s Facebook page in 2011.

She also shared with the Post a secretly recorded telephone conversation with Barton in 2015 in which he warned her against using the material “in a way that would negatively affect my career”.

Victim?

Texas Rep. Joe Barton may have been the victim of revenge porn, after an anonymous Twitter user posted explicit photos and texts of the longtime congressman.

In a statement Wednesday night, he said that he had suffered “a potential crime.” A Texas law, the so-called revenge pornography law, makes it a misdemeanor to intentionally publicize images or videos of someone’s genitals or sexual activity without consent.

 How many reports has there been on high profile or elected women sending pictures of their genitalia in the last five years? 

Zero

Woman Unseats GOP Lawmaker Who Made Sexist Joke About Women’s March


sacratomatovillepost-wms13.jpg.jpg

On Tuesday, life came at John Carman fast.

By: Inae Oh/Mother Jones

Nearly 10 months after the New Jersey Republican legislator shared a meme asking if the historic Women’s March would be “over in time” for its participants to “cook dinner,” a woman and first-time political candidate who expressed anger over the sexist remarks has ousted Carman from office.

Democrat Ashley Bennett will now take Carman’s seat on the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders, a nine-member governing body that oversees politics in the South Jersey county. She was one of thousands of women around the country to dive into politics after Trump’s victory last year

“I was angry about [the Facebook meme], because elected officials shouldn’t be on social media mocking and belittling people who are expressing their concerns about their community and the nation,” Bennett  said in October.

Last month, Carman drew fresh outrage for sporting a Confederate flag patch in the shape of New Jersey on his denim vest. He denied the racist implications of the patch, calling it the “South Jersey Rebal Patch”

_______________________

Here’s Carman’s Facebook post reacting to Tuesday’s loss:

I just want to thank everyone who supported me and worked diligently for this election. My thanks goes out to everyone, I am truly humbled by your support. Apparently the good Lord has other plans for me, so I will continue to seek and serve in another direction. May God bless you, John

he wasn’t a terrorist because he was an American…dah!


This was one of the answers on social media to why Stephen Paddock isn’t a terrorist.  After killing 59 people and injuring nearly 600 others in Las Vegas.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov is a terrorist after killing 8 people and injuring 15 others in New York.  For many his crime is more heinous because he is foreign and from one of those countries  AND he gets 10 bonus points if he says he is a member of Isis. 

The Don said, extreme vetting (gun control) wouldn’t have mattered in Texas because the shooting ” was a result of mental health”.  Perhaps the Don could benefit from some mental health treatment. BECAUSE many states do not have a provision that prevents someone with  mental issues from buying a GUN!

What is it?

Is it easier to accept an acts of terror if the terror is perpetrated by a non European?

Terrorist acts at abortion clinics were justified because the terrorist did what he did because of his religions passion.   He was saving babies when he killed those five people.  

45 wants to limit people coming into this country from CERTAIN countries.  A gentleman on a cable news show defended 45’s position.   The fact that his was RADICALIZED in America, was ignored.   When asked, should we vet people who’s profile fits the Las Vegas shooter ( Terrorist) he said that wouldn’t work here.

If someone killed someone you knew, your not likely to say he/she was emotional, passionate, or out of control!

Image result for stupidity is real it will always be with us

Never! 

People get into lengthy passionate and sometimes hate fill speech .  I’ve never understood it.  These are strangers people I’m not likely to meet. I’m not going to change an opinion or belief.   So I’m arguing Y? 

Duh!

 

In a perfect world.  The overwhelming majority of NRA members who support gun control and the elimination of Automatic Machine Guns would withhold their dues until NRA changes their position.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta #Rhoa S10 EP1 50 Shade of Cynthia


Image result for the real housewives of atlanta

 

First things first, Nene is back with a hardcore Georgia swagger.  I was mixed about her return, when she shines, there is no housewife like her anywhere.  When the light fades she can turn very dark and bring an episode to its knees and while I’m happy to see her, its still a wait and see.    Last night Nene was vintage Nene and from the  high quality commercials on last night.  Nene deserves every stack of cash Bravo pays her.   All the other housewives in the city’s will just have to hate her!

Atlanta has been suffering of late, the drama was drawn out and last years Kandi, Porsha, Phaedra storyline went on for much too long.  New York is the currently the best franchise, the housewives are older and the issues end after a few episodes and with the drama, the show has humor.    In the ratings  New Jersey is second only to Atlanta and like Atlanta the storylines lumbered on .  This season the ladies are older and this year New Jersey is much improved.    Atlanta’s “OG’s , Nene who is now 49, Kim and Sheree may stabilize Atlanta.   I’m encouraged after last nights episode.

Season ten opened with the crowds at the OLG restaurant.  Kandi ,Todd’s baby is a hit!  The downside of  success is Kandi feels, she isn’t spending enough time with her children and she’ll see even less of the kids when she goes on tour with Xscape.

The season is on. We see Cynthia Bailey in full makeup in an expensive kaftan blowing leaves at her home on Lake Bailey.  She is preparing for her 50th birthday party (she admits her birthday was a few months back)  at this party attendees will come dressed as her.

Next scene we see Mrs Leakes, arriving in her Black Rolls Royce, Bitches!   (Warning:  I will be saying Bitches a lot!)  She walks in with air kisses and its now down to business.   She want’s to get down with Kenya business.  Is da gurl married or is he the latest rent a man?       Nene struggles with Cynthia, who is happy! happy! happy! for Kenya.  Her happiness for Kenya trouble’s Nene as Cynthia doesn’t anything about her close friend husband, including his name.  For now its baby?    In addition to not knowing his name, Cynthia doesn’t know how long Kenya has known her man. Answers a besty would have right ?  But she is happy, happy, happy, for Kenya.  Kenya doesnt know Nene is going to lunch with them.

Kenya arrives, in her white convertible Bentley.   She walks in, and Nene is like bitch sit down lets get this interrogation going and tell me EVERYTHANG about your Husband!    Kenya is all smiles but not giving up shit!  His name is baby,  They’re looking for a house together because Moore Manor has ghosts . ( I think we know his name and he breaks windows!)    Nene goes in for round two and gets nothing.

BeWeave it or Dont!

Porsha has a podcast giving out marital advice with her sister and cousin!

One thing is clear this episode, Phaedra Parks is gone but is still very much a part of this episode.    Porsha is the outsider for now and possibly other episodes.  She says  Sheree is the ONLY housewife who has reached out to her.  Meanwhile, Phaedra has texted her and seems to want her friend back.  Porsha isn’t feeling it and her sister and cousin are shooting looks that say, leave that bitch ALONE!

Porsha gives us one.

Some one wants to know if they should introduce their man to the family.   The women is in her twenties and her man is 49, three years older than her dad.  First, Porsha says an old man cant make a baby.  The ladies correct her, and tell her a man in his eighties can father a child.   Porsha, our 265 days a year, THE QUEEN OF ALL KNOWLEDGE WHEN IT COMES TO THE UNDERGROUND RAILROADS SAY’S  “Does that mean they would have old looking kids.” ?

Its Sheree! 

Nene has a boutique in Atlanta call Swagg. She does a few seconds of promotion and Sheree walks in.  The reunion is great, these two run hot and cold.  We get a quick montage of  their fights.  Nene senses Sheree may be seeing someone.  Sheree is not giving it up and in her confessional she made it VERY clear Nene would be the LAST person she would tell.  They talk about Phaedra and Porsha and while Sheree is giving Porsha a break, Nene says Porsha isn’t so innocent  She says Porsha is running around talking about her.   Nene thinks the root of the problem was some advice she gave Porsha on the reunion a few years back.  Sheree says, Nene is surrounded with yes people.  People who agree with her and she doesn’t like people who disagree with her.

Later we see Sheree with Porsha shopping at  a wig shop for Cynthia’s Party.  The two talk about  the status of Porsha and NeNe? Porsha is pissed, she says NeNe said she should be fired on  Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happen’s Live.  As for the advice, Porsha said NeNe could have done that privately.

The Phantom Groom 

In her Bentley, Kenya calls her dad.  He is being questioned about Kenya’s posts on the internet.   Kenya’s dad is very outspoken and she did not want her dad to say anything to upset her future husband.   He tells her he just wants her to be cautious.

Peter

Noelle, loves her former step dad and asks Cynthia did she invite him to the party.?  Its clearly uncomfortable and she calls him.   He tells her he cant make it and you can tell it made her sad.   Its her first birthday without him .

50 Shades of Cynthia (The Party) 

Most of the attendees were in various shades of Cynthia.   There was a little Bravo cross pollination with  Toya and Quad from Bravos’s Married to Medicine.  However, Cynthia’s good friend Nene was awashed in white. She wasn’t trying to look like her good friend.

Sheree and Porsha arrive late.  Porsha, hugs Kandi and someone of the other women, but ignores Nene.   Kandi isn’t cool with the hug and say’s she cant be phony and leaves the area.  Meanwhile, Sheree wants Nene and Porsha to fix whatevahs wrong in housewives style at someone party.

Before I go on, this probably the only fail of the night.  The confrontation between Porsha and Nene at the party looked staged.   Nene’s hubby is sitting behind the ladies as  they go at it.  The camera focused he reactions of compete strangers  Ok Bravo, what’s that all about?

Nene want to know whats going on.  Porsha, said that Nene said on WWHL that she wanted her fired.  How can you want your friend fired right?  Nene said, I never used the words fired!   Before the fight escalates, Nene walks away.    On twitter, a lot of people was surprised!

Fans know, a vintage Nene would have gone off on Porsha, and she would end until Porsha left.   She would get in a verbal sparring match with anyone at anytime, taking no prisoners!   What we saw last night was a mature Nene.

Nene, is entertaining, and I’m liking the mature Nene.  Time will tell .
