Stormy Daniels is a feminist hero

And we owe it to her to give her the respect she deserves in her fight to break her silence

If American history has taught us one important lesson, it’s that sex scandals — in all their forms — can be more powerful than whispers of corruption when it comes to pushing a politician out of office.

By: Nicole Karlis/Salon.com

While this isn’t always the case, it seems to be true more times than not. Blame it on the country’s puritanical roots, America’s obsession with private lives or the increasing intolerance for abusive men in positions of power. When one’s sex life becomes public knowledge, and it reflects poorly on that person’s character, it’s likely their days in office are numbered. This trend dates back centuries. As every Lin-Manuel Miranda fan knows, Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton had an affair while married. A journalist exposed him after he served in office, but he still had to issue a public apology, which reportedly harmed his reputation and future in politics. Then there’s Bill Clinton, who set a new standard of what the implications are when you lie about an affair under oath.

 

When news broke that adult film star Stephanie Clifford (whose stage name is Stormy Daniels) allegedly had an affair with President Donald Trump in 2006 while he was married to Melania Trump, gasps and glimmers of real hope arrived for many who are utterly exhausted by Trump’s misogyny, racism and bullying. Unlike the many would-be scandals that have followed Trump all the way into the Oval Office, Clifford has a real chance at thwarting Trump’s position of power.

OMAROSA!!! will not die


Donald Trump with Omarosa Manigault, then the Trump campaign's director of African-American outreach, in September 2016

 As for the state of the country? “It’s going to not be okay. It’s not.” “Its worse than anyone thinks? Omarosa Maigault Newman

Omarosa Manigault left the White House for the Big Brother house and she is spilling the White House tea with cast members and the rest of the world.  Take a look at the video.

 

Ms Manigault has made quite the career for herself, being a supreme villian on and off Realty Televison.  There are unofficial reports say, she was dragged off  White House grounds, reports the Secret Service has not denied.

After being fired, she said she had a story to tell.  Is her apperance on Big Brother a sample of what to come?

I’m sure the former Director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison for the Trump Adminstration is earning more, MUCH MORE than her cast mates on Big Brother and her presence will result in high ratings for the CBS reality show. 

She shares many similarities with her first former boss. Like Donald Trump, she was a Democrat. She worked with Vice President Al Gore.   She has been routinely called a pathelogical liar, combative, a horrible person.   She is known as the Top Reality Villian of all time.    When she was fired, the black community was silent.

 

Despite all negativity that surrounds her, Omarosa will not die, NEWS @ 11

Winning the Battle and Losing the War

More than 30 Republicans have announced they planned to retire by 2019. The latest, is California’s Darrell Issa.   Issa was first elected to Congress in in 2001. For many years his  district representing Western San Diego Country was considered safe district for the Republican Party. The demographics have changed ,there are more Hispanics and Asians in his district then ever before.    In 2016’s general election Issa beat his Democratic challenger Doug Applegate by 1600 votes.

The challenge for many Republicans in 2018.  Incumbents will need to alien themselves with Presidents Trumps to survive the primaries and then broaden their appeal to win the General Election.

The Current GOP is viewed as Racist,Sexist, and Cruel by  Millennials.  This large demograpic went to integrated Schools, they tend to support LGB issues. While there are not enamored with the Democratic Party, they are more likely to vote with the Demos.

The Republican Party Needs a few Superheros 

Image result for superheroes gif

31 Republicans not seeking re-election in 2018. That number will likely grow, as Republicans in competitive districts have to make decisions about whether to run in an election year where their president has a low approval rating.

Choosing Party Over Personal Political Aspirations

President Trumps words, tweets is having a profound negative effect on the nation and his party.   His adminstration has alienated nations and racial groups throughout the world.  America is no longer viewed as a welcoming place.   The White Houses isn’t welcoming to many Americans.

The GOP is in desperate need of Superheros.  George W Bush and Arizona’s John McCain and Bob Corker, Jeff Flake cant do it alone.   The party needs SUPERHEROS Men and Women who will say Donald Trump’s views do not reflect the Republican Party.   Proud Republicans who will say his positions on Muslims, Mexicans, Gays, and the Poor is not who they are as a party!   The GOP dangeriously is teetering near edge.

Memories are long and the pain is deep.  The recovery is likely long,the healing process may take decades.

The Trump Administration’s basement doesn’t appear to have a bottom. Paul Ryan, The Speaker of the House of Representatives response to Donald Trumps latest faux pas was to say it was “Very unfortunate and unhelpful”.   The future of the party isn’t promising.

Author Michael Wolff Spills the Tea in the White House


The Trump Administration says it will Sue to Stop Publication of the Book!

Steve Bannon Better Shut his Filty Mouth or he will get Sued!

   Sarah Huckabee Sanders is losing her pearls and her voice. She may come down with a mysterious aliment.

The book is the first tell all about Trump White House and its anything but a snoozer. Its so juicy it has to be fattening.

Someone should expect a BIG box of chocolates from FBI Director Robert Mueller

On the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller into alleged collusion with the Kremlin to get Trump elected, Steve Bannon predicted: “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” He said that the investigation will focus on money laundering. “You realize where this is going,” Bannon said of the probe by special counsel Mueller. “This is all about money-laundering. “Their path to fucking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner… It’s as plain as a hair on your face,” he said. “It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit… The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that.”

Is it fake news? 

How did the author “Michael Wolff get the tea?

Donald Trump may have brought this one on himself.  DT’s lack of experience and not wanting to play by the rules, made it easy for Wolff.    

Shortly after Trump’s inauguration, Wolff says, he was able to take up “something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing” — an idea encouraged by the president himself. Because no one was in a position to either officially approve or formally deny such access, Wolff became “more a constant interloper than an invited guest.” There were no ground rules placed on his access, and he was required to make no promises about how he would report on what he witnessed.

Probably following the Presidents lead:  Sources would fail to set any parameters on the use of a conversation, or would provide accounts in confidence, only to subsequently share their views widely. And the president’s own views, private as well as public, were constantly shared by others.

The author chronicle the Trump administration from Election Day to October.  He has conducted more than 200 conversations and interviews over a period of 18 months with the president, most members of his senior staff, and  the many people to whom they in turn spoke.

  Waaaait One More!!!!

2018 isn’t kind to da Prez.  Yesterday, he shut down a White House commission he had charged with investigating voter fraud.   You remember, there was NO way Hillary had 3 million more votes!!    FRAUD!  he said , that’s what he said!

There were illegal voters and he the commission demanded the states turn over detailed voter data, including the names, addresses, birthdates, partial Social Security numbers, party affiliation, felon status and other data for every registered voter.     JEDI WARRIORS IN THE STATES REFUSED!  There were meetings and lawsuites. Lawsuites and Hearings.

Da Prez place the blame on the blue states .  But the Red Jedi Warriors pushed back as well.  The Jedi Warrior from Mississippi, Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said that when he received the data request, his response would be to tell the commission to “go jump in the Gulf of Mexico.

Tear down the mountains
Yell, scream and shout
You can say what you want
I’m not walkin’ out
Stop all the rivers
Push, strike, and kill
I’m not gonna leave you
There’s no way I will

And I am telling you, I’m not going

Its official, Doug Jones is the Senator from Alabama. 

 Roy Moore says no!   Voter,Voter Voter Fraud.   They have witness that have seen with there own eyes five busloads of African-Americans from Mississippi voted OR that three van loads of Mexicans (you know difficult it is to tell THEM apart)  voted in the election.He says claims that out-of-state residents had voted in the election and voters tried to cast more than one ballot.   

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, a Republican who supported Moore have all been vetted and all been cleared” by his office and “there was no fraud in those particular instances.”  In total, Merrill said his campaign had received just over 100 complaints, with 60 already adjudicated and 40 still under investigation.

Merrill also said his office tracked down one man who claimed in a video that he came from another state to vote and that the man was discovered to be an Alabama Rresident.

“Roy Moore took a polygraph and released the findings after the election

The results of the examination, confirmed he wasn’t a perv, a molester and didn’t  know, nor had he ever had any sexual contact with any of these individuals.”

There is no report provided from the polygraph administrator, no notes about how questions were asked or even who conducted it. There is much debate over accurate polygraph tests can be, anyway, and they aren’t admissible in court in most instances. But thanks buddy! 

He still struggles with math.  The age of his current wife when he started dating her.

How Mainstream media gets Palestine wrong


Israeli forces detain Fawzi al-Juniadi during a protest in the West Bank city of Hebron on December 7 [Wisam Hashlamoun/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images]

The photo of 16-year-old Fawzi al-Junaidi blindfolded, bruised and surrounded by a dozen Israeli soldiers went viral on social media. It was touted as the emblem of Israeli oppression.

But for Western mainstream media, it was difficult to accommodate this photo, amid all the talk about “anger”, “rage”, “violence”, and the regularly recycled imagery of burning tyres and young men with hidden faces hurling stones.

Fawzi’s arrest was presented as a singular case, an exception, and what happened to him after the photo was snapped did not interest mainstream media. There was little mention of the thousands of children currently imprisoned or the fact that they are the fifth generation of Palestinians living under a military occupation.

Likewise, while many foreign correspondents were saying that US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel had thrown “gasoline in the fire“, there was little mention of the fact that that same city has been systematically ethnically cleansed for the past 70 years.

In Western mainstream reporting, Palestinians yet again were presented as irrational “angry” actors, their oppression yet again denied the coverage it deserves.

Palestinians usually make it into mainstream coverage only when they are protesting or physically confronting Israeli aggression. Their outcry is referred to as an “escalation of violence” in the region. There is no “escalation of violence” when Israel steps up its night raids on Palestinian homes or settlers attack Palestinian farmers.

daring to listen (Political Addition)


 

Image result for divided government

Lets be clear the nation IS divided.  It’s Democrats against the Republicans and Fox News against other cable networks.

The polarization between the two parties has grinded our government to halt, our government isn’t working.  Most of the states have closed primaries not only binding the hands of voters but severely limit the reach of politicians.

The polarization has spilled over into our daily lives with some Democrats believing  Republicans are inherently evil and Republicans believe Democrats are attempting to eliminate traditions and values they hold dear.

At a resent social event, a gentleman announced his family would LEAVE if there were any Republicans there.

She watches MSNBC and can’t be trusted.  He’s clearly a right winger, because he watches Fox News, they all are.

Throughout my travels it’s not uncommon for people I know to say.  Why are you going there?  Its dangerous for black people or I wouldn’t visit that state because they are (fill in blank)  The reality is most of these people who have developed these strong opinions have never visited these places.  Or get all their information from one source.   They make their decisions based on rumors or wise tales ” I know this women who went there and “

If its printed it has to be true.

It isn’t difficult to manipulate people who rely on one source for their information. Fewer people read newspapers today, the credibility of the stories created by the organization. can damage that organization.

There is no such standard online.     An blog say Sacratomatoville post can create a story and that can be shared with millions of people within minutes.  Only a very small segment on social media fact checks a story with a few established media outlets they simply share the story.

Last year a blogger created at story that accused Hillary Clinton was running  a child sex ring out of a Pizzeria in Washington DC. One man was arrested for firing a gun into the restaurant.  A poll conducted by Public Policy Polling on December 6–7, 2016, asked 1,224 U.S. registered voters if they thought Hillary Clinton was “connected to a child sex ring being run out of a pizzeria in Washington DC?” The poll showed that 9% said that they did believe she was connected, 72% said they did not.     The Russians were very astute as there are millions of Americans who get most of their news via social media, manipulation isn’t difficult.

Everyday People

Last year I visited 17 states .  I left the interstate and got lost on the smaller highways and roads linking rural communities. Visited places like Ozuna,Texas, Missoula, Montana, and Clines Corners, New Mexico.  You get a good sense of what the community issues are at local a non-chain restaurant.  Where some of the locals gather everyday, you hear their opinions about local and national issues.

One man in a restaurant  didn’t see me in the diner in Sweetwater Texas when he said “that Nigger Obama has ruined his country.  While he didn’t didn’t noticed the 6.4 350 pound black man, everyone else did.   One waitress said, she thought he was a good man .   Most of the conversations ended in the restaurant as the patrons waited  for my reaction.   I continued to read my book and eventually things returned to normal.

The man who made the comment, stood by my table and slowly apologized for calling Obama  a nigger.  He just didn’t like him, he was too high and mighty.  He wanted to take away  guns from good law biding people. He has had a gun since he was six year old.  Everybody in his town did, its how people lived in small towns.  He made it clear that he didn’t hate black people and he wasn’t prejudiced or anything like that .  He knew all black people voted and loved Obama.  He just didn’t like all things he changed around, notably “Gay Marriage.  He said, he didn’t hate the gay people, he just believed marriage was between a man and a women.   He said he had no faith in the Supreme Court because they get everything they want and they ignore God believing people.

Before we knew it, he was sitting at my table exchanging views.   He knew I was from California because of my accent and that I was educated because I sound like the blacks on TV.      We talked about Gay Marriage, crime, Donald Trump ,  black lives matter (he supported Ted Cruz and had a thought Ben Carson was a decent black man) .

I learned the world was moving too fast for him.  He grew up in a world a personal checks and pay phones.   Throughout the conversation he kept apologizing for saying nigger in my presence.  It was Black people who helped pull big truck out of the mud during a downpour.  Even though he will never visit California, especially San Francisco.  We sort of had a meeting of the minds. That gay people being married wont affect him or his family.  We learned from each other, no opinions were changed but we both left with greater understanding and respect.

I met many amazing people in 2016 in places I wouldn’t imagined and made a few friends along the way.   My only agenda was to listen, not to convert.  Every person, town or community has a story.  Being a very curious person, I simply wanted to hear the story.

In 2018, I hope to have an extended visit in the south and to visit Appalachia.

“Dare to Listen”

I believe its important to hear the other side.     We can learn from many things from anyone at anytime.  If we dare to listen freely and without judgement.

Until enough of us are willing to hear the other side , we will continue to be divided.
