Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has rightfully filed a police complaint over a fake sexual harassment complaint against him, including the forged signature of a former aide. This is a vicious attack on Schumer that vividly illustrates the hatefilled madness that has taken so many citizens on both the left and the right in today’s poisonous political environment. I am heartened by the filing. Finding the culprit or culprits behind this fake complaint would take a small but meaningful step to bringing a element of responsibility back to our political discourse.
The fake complaint smeared Schumer with lurid, false details. It has been handed over to the Capitol Police. The 13-page, password-protected PDF file was sent to various media outlets under the name “Schumer_Complaint.” It was written to look like a 2012 filing in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The woman who allegedly filed the complaint is a staff member who worked with Schumer from 2009 to 2012 and now works for the federal government. It details dates of sexual misconduct in Washington when Schumer was actually in New York.
Two controversial conservative bloggers Mike Cernovich and Charles C. Johnson posted on social media that they had a bombshell sexual harassment complaint against an unnamed senator.
Both now deny being the sources of the story and Cernovich insists that he “did his homework” and ultimately rejected the story as a hoax. He has a rather poor record on hoaxes. He was one of those pushing the bizarre Pizzagate conspiracy, a claim that Hillary Clinton and her aides were part of a pedophile ring operating out of the basement of a Washington pizzeria.
Hopefully, police will find an trail on this Schumer attack and we will expose part of this dark element on the web. What is interesting is that this is a forgery designed to look like an official document (which would be serious federal and state crime if filed), but it was never actually an official document. That could knock some potential criminal charges. It could constitute mail and wire fraud and other crimes. There can also be civil liability for false light, defamation, and other torts. In other words, this person or persons may have thought that this was just more trolling on the Internet, but could soon discover that there are consequences for actions . . . even on the Internet.

I wholeheartedly agree. If someone forges a document that supports years old lurid claims of sexual harassment by a politician around election time they should be disbelieved — unless it’s a yearbook in Alabama.
Schumer was in an advantageous position. He was presented with merely a forged document, and not a physical women accusing him. You cannot deny a female accuser without looking like you are bullying a victim in the court of public opinion. In addition he had access to proof that the document was a fabrication. The very woman named as accuser denied any involvement, if I understand correctly.
In Moore’s case, he should have immediately submitted still images of the yearbook to a handwriting analyst and released a statement that it was forged. I suspect that he may have signed the first part, up until his first name, which is why his response was anemic. All words and no action. I do not know if there has been any movement on the case – if there has been any evidence put forward that he made advances to underage girls, or anything nonconsensual.
The timing at this late date was suspect. These women might have cared enough about opposing his policies, regardless of their own politics, that they came forward at the 11th hour. Simply a motivation for justice would have arguably induced them to say something decades ago. Or perhaps they just didn’t want to be the first one. There is a consequence for not reporting an assault or other crime at the time, and for waiting decades. In cases of bonafide abuse, it is tragic, and there are often reasons, but you cannot choose not to report a crime, wait decades after evidence is lost, and then be dismayed that your word may be doubted.
I hope they find out the truth one way or another. It tends to come out, eventually.
And then there is Gillibrand who is receiving great press in the MSM- a proponent of women who took $$ from the Clintons for 20 years then said Bubba should have resigned just this year.
She pushed for Franken to resign and “is planning to donate the money she has received from Sen. Al Franken’s PAC after an accusation of sexual misconduct against the Minnesota Democrat. Gllibrand is planning to donate the $12,500 she’s received from the political action group to Protect our Defenders, a group dedicated to ending the “epidemic of rape and sexual assault in the military.”
Her biggest top contributor is her former law firm – Boies, Schiller And Flexner – they have donated since 2005 $820,893.
Since she is so concerned about sexual assaults on women in light of the fact that that firm is not only defending Harvey Weinstein, but hired a team from Israel (at his behest) to spy on reporters covering the story, will she be returning at least some of the $$$$$??
“The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow reported Monday that lawyer David Boies, working on behalf of Weinstein, contracted with a team of private investigators, including former Mossad agents, to try to kill a negative New York Times story about Weinstein. Boies firm, Boies Schiller Flexner, has represented the newspaper three times in the last 10 years. The firm was reportedly defending the Times in a libel suit at the same time it was hiring private investigators to target its journalists.”
A investigation is coming for da Assaulter in Chief. Da hearing room will be filled with da Blondie women that he attacked
I have something to tell you and it might make you very sad. You see, there is no Easter bunny, and lawyers defend clients; some of whom you may not like…
This it to “but isn’t he’s a baddy, daddy?!” Autumn
Marky Mark Mark – this is going to come as a great surprise to you, but Autumn already knows about sleazy lawyers and that there is no Easter Bunny. I don’t know why you feel the need to state the obvious except that you are so insecure about living in your mother’s basement, it deflects attention from that.
Merriam Webster Definition of Marky Mark:
“Narcissistic Personality Disorder”
Individuals with this disorder exhibit a lack of ability to empathize with others and an inflated sense of self-importance.
The hallmarks of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) are grandiosity, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration. People with this condition are frequently described as arrogant, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. They may also concentrate on grandiose fantasies (e.g. their own success, beauty, brilliance) and may be convinced that they deserve special treatment. These characteristics typically begin in early adulthood and must be consistently evident in multiple contexts, such as at work and in relationships.
People with narcissistic personality disorder believe they are superior or special, and often try to associate with other people they believe are unique or gifted in some way. This association enhances their self-esteem, which is typically quite fragile underneath the surface. Individuals with NPD seek excessive admiration and attention in order to know that others think highly of them. Individuals with narcissistic personality disorder have difficulty tolerating criticism or defeat, and may be left feeling humiliated or empty when they experience an “injury” in the form of criticism or rejection.
Senator Gillibrand Campaigned With a Rapist and Should Resign
December 12, 2017
Senator Gillibrand, a local hack with the right family ties appointed to fill Hillary Clinton’s seat, who has no conceivable qualifications for the job, has done nothing to justify her time in the Senate and would never have been able to keep her seat if New York elections weren’t becoming as hopelessly one state as California, is calling on President Trump to resign.
If Gillibrand wants to get the resignation train going, she can start with herself.
Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) said Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency over his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, although she campaigned alongside him for both her and Hillary Clinton’s runs for office after he left the White House and previously said she was “truly honored” by his support.
Gillibrand goes way back with the Clintons. She worked for Hillary Clinton’s successful 2000 U.S. Senate campaign, and Bill Clinton campaigned for her first run for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2006. Gillibrand has also spoken glowingly of Hillary influencing her to get involved in politics, and she has frequently complimented Bill over the course of her career.
“I was lucky enough to receive guidance and mentorship from Hillary during that run, and was truly honored that President Bill Clinton campaigned for me in my first run for Congress in 2006,” she wrote in an op-ed explaining her endorsement of Hillary’s White House bid.
Gillibrand and Bill Clinton campaigned together in New York in April 2016 on behalf of Hillary Clinton, and Gillibrand tweeted they had a “great time.”
“I hope you’re as excited as I am that we have President Clinton here in Watertown!” Gillibrand said as she introduced the 42nd president in Watertown.
Gillibrand has already admitted that Bill Clinton should resign. Too late for that. But she can resign for campaigning with a rapist.
Then everybody that worked for da T rump should resign right now. What did he do to da Omoorosa?
He fired her.
MMM – sure they do. But since she’s running as a defender of wymen shouldn’t she return some of the money?
Sure there is an Easter Bunny – it brings me a basket of goodies every year!
12-Year-Old Girl Whose Rape Hillary Laughed About Comes Forward
August 9, 2016
This is a genuinely horrifying story that raises serious questions about whether Hillary Clinton even has the ability to empathize with other people.
In the early hours of May 10, 1975, the Springdale, Arkansas police department received a call from a nearby hospital. It was treating a 12-year-old girl who said she had been raped.
The suspect was identified as Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old factory worker and friend of the girl’s family.
The lawyer he would end up with: Hillary Rodham.
“It was a fascinating case, it was a very interesting case,” Clinton says in the recording. “This guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old. Course he claimed that he didn’t, and all this stuff.”
“I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” she added with a laugh.
Clinton can also be heard laughing at several points when discussing the crime lab’s accidental destruction of DNA evidence that tied Taylor to the crime.
In a July 28, 1975, court affidavit, Clinton wrote that she had been informed the young girl was “emotionally unstable” and had a “tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing.”
Now the girl at the center of the case has come forward.
A child rape victim says she cannot forgive Hillary Clinton for defending her rapist in court 40 years ago, saying the Democratic presidential candidate attacked her credibility despite knowing that her assailant was guilty – and later laughed about it in a taped interview.
Kathy Shelton was just 12 years old when a 41-year-old drifter raped her on the side of a desolate Arkansas road in 1975.
‘It’s put a lot of anger back in me,’ said Shelton, now 54, in an exclusive interview at her Springdale, Arkansas, home in August. ‘Every time I see [Clinton] on TV I just want to reach in there and grab her, but I can’t do that.’
Taylor pleaded down to ‘unlawful fondling of a minor’ and served less than a year in prison after Clinton was able to block the admission of forensic evidence that linked her client to the crime.
That ought to be remembered every time Hillary claims to be a defender of women.
In a lengthy interview with the Daily Mail Online, Shelton said Clinton is ‘lying’ when she claims to be a lifelong defender of women and girls.
Shelton said Clinton accused her during the case of ‘seeking out older men’, and demanded that the 12-year-old undergo a grueling court-ordered psychiatric examination to determine whether she was ‘mentally unstable’.
‘I don’t think [Clinton’s] for women or girls. I think she’s lying, I think she said anything she can to get in the campaign and win,’ Shelton said. ‘If she was [an advocate for women and children], she wouldn’t have done that to me at 12 years old.’
Hillary is strictly an advocate for Hillary.
‘I heard you on tape laughing,’ said Shelton. ‘I just want to know, you’ve got a daughter and a grandbaby. What happens if that daughter of yours, if that would have been her [who was assaulted at age 12]?’
Shelton said she ‘wasn’t surprised’ that Clinton has yet to express sympathy for the plight she went through as a victim.
She said: ‘If she brought it up there would probably be some questions asked that she wouldn’t be able to answer.
‘Because after laughing on that tape, she’s pretty much stuck in knowing that she lied, knowing that it happened to me. And that tape’s out there to be listened to by anybody.’
On May 10, 1975, Shelton, an outgoing 12-year-old tomboy, had been riding her bike around the neighborhood when she first encountered Taylor – who worked at a paper factory at the time – and an underage male at one of her friend’s houses.
Shelton got into Taylor’s truck after he said he would take her to get a soda.
Taylor drove to a ‘weedy ravine’, where he and his 15-year-old male acquaintance raped her.
Taylor and his 15-year-old accomplice denied raping Shelton, although one unnamed witness of the attack told prosecutors that he overheard Taylor sexually assaulting Shelton, according to court records.
‘They denied it and said I asked for it,’ said Shelton. ‘Do you think I would ask to have several stitches down there and not have kids? No, I wouldn’t.’
Shelton said she was a virgin before she was raped, and her mother was very strict about her relationships with members of the opposite sex.
‘My mom didn’t even let me start dating until 18 and then I didn’t want to because of what happened,’ said Shelton. ‘I didn’t deserve it…I was a virgin, let’s put it that way, when it happened. And I was totally freaked out.’
Shelton said she was physically beaten during the attack.
‘I can’t cuss, but [Taylor] was calling me the ‘b’ word, and [saying] ‘You like it, you know it’,’ said Shelton. ‘Slapping me and hitting me with his fist.’
Shelton said she managed to escape her attackers to a nearby house that had a light on, and later woke up in the hospital.
helton recounted the brutal assault that she said left her with severe internal and external injuries. She said she was knocked into a coma, and later required stitches in her genital area.
‘When I came out of the coma, I had several stitches down there. They tore me up bad,’ she said. ‘The doctors said there was a 99 percent chance I couldn’t have kids. I have been with a couple men after that, it took me a long time to grow there. But I never had any kids.’
As a result of the attack, Shelton said doctors told her it was unlikely she would ever be able to have children. She said she was devastated by the prognosis.
‘When I was younger I really wanted a kid so bad,’ said Shelton, who has never had children. ‘I love kids.’
In the photo, Shelton looks younger than her 12 years. Today she looks older than 54, with wrinkles and heavy bags under her piercing blue eyes.
She said she sometimes finds it hard to talk about the attack, all these years later.
‘Sometimes I still break down and cry, since it’s been brought back up,’ she said. ‘I’m trying right now not to tear up, but it’s kind of hard sometimes.’
But she said that won’t stop her from speaking out about what she went through – even if it is politically uncomfortable for one of the world’s most powerful women.
‘I’m being restored for something that was stolen from me,’ she said.
The Clintons have stolen from all of us. From Shelton perhaps more than anyone else.
Stop the presses! Alert the media! Great Scott, man, criminal defense lawyers zealously defend accused criminals!
This is to “but my lawyer didn’t get me such a sweet deal” bammy
Marky Mark Mark – isn’t that what happened to OJ. His defense team zealously defended him? They got him a not guilty verdict in almost record time. However, in this case, Schumer is filing the criminal complaint. He is not the defendant, he is the accuser, and it makes a big difference. Now the onus is on him.
It was addressed to bammies story about mean ole Hillary
Marky Mark Mark – I told you several times that you are my especial project and will continue to be until you stop insulting people. Once you stop insulting people you will become Mark M., an adult. If you had a legitimate thought, I would be happy to discuss it with you, but so far all we have seen are insults. That is your character flaw.
Focus, focus (and reading comprehension), my “address” statement pertained not at all to your participation, as sticks can easily be poked into your cage as well. My statement pointed out that your Schumer reference was irrelevant as my statement was a reply to Bammies woeful tale of mean ole Hillary, who had put soap in the fountain or stolen his lunch money or some such.
This is to “oh, ya…uh, never mind” georgie.
Marky Mark Mark – insult one person at a time, speaking of focus. Focus is something you do not have.
PCS, one does not negotiate with the toilet, one flushes it.
Interesting, Darren. . .what happened to my comment from 11:03 am this morning? You didn’t care for my idea that this may be a set-up, by Chuckie, to paint all accusers, that may come forward against him, as being associated with whomever it was that forged this document? You didn’t like it, or, your handlers didn’t like it, so you just deleted it?
I did not delete your comment but since you asked in such a disrespectful manner, I won’t look for it.
I’m going to lose sleep over it.
Anti-Trump PBS Host Accused of Sexual Misconduct
December 14, 2017
Tavis Smiley feared that slavery might make a comeback under President Trump.
PBS personality Tavis Smiley stopped by Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, a private “Hidden Ivy” with a modest $45K tuition and was asked about whether slavery might make a comeback.
“Mr. Smiley, do you believe that given the crisis state of our democracy, we black folk could ever find ourselves enslaved again?” a student at this elite institution asked the millionaire.
Smiley assured readers of Time Magazine, the flagship product of a multi-billion dollar corporation headquartered near the World Trade Center, that slavery could very well make a comeback.
Maybe a kind of slavery did. On Smiley’s watch.
PBS has suspended late-night talk show “Tavis Smiley” amid misconduct allegations against its host and namesake.
According to sources, MSK took reports from 10 witnesses, a mix of men and women of different races and employment levels in Smiley’s organization, most of them former staffers.
That will make the racism defense that much harder.
The investigation found credible allegations that Smiley had engaged in sexual relationships with multiple subordinates, sources said. Some witnesses interviewed expressed concern that their employment status was linked to the status of a sexual relationship with Smiley. In general, witnesses described Smiley as creating a verbally abusive and threatening environment that went beyond what could be expected in a typical high-pressure work environment. Several expressed concerns about retaliation.
It was almost like… slavery.

I’m no fan of Chuck Schumer, but if he is falsely accused then he should fight back and hopefully win.
I severely dislike the loathsome Chuck Schumer, but good for him for beefing on this
I just sent out some Chucky dolls as Xmas gifts. No batteries needed. It’s play time, DNC style.
Chuck probably planted this story himself!
Although he is an incredibly sleazy man who has done a great deal of evil over his career, he has every right to go to the police about this issue. As of yet, no one knows where the story came from so it doesn’t appear to be accurate to blame it on right wing media.
It is necessary to wait for the investigation to see who created the story and who shopped it around.
BTW–may I, as an ordinary citizen, go to the police with all the fake news put out by this govt. and the MSM which has resulted in the death of our soldiers and civilians in other nations, along with the destruction of several whole societies? Because if I can do this, I certainly will.
Jill – let’s not forget DWS and Awan working for her when he wasn’t supposed to. And then when she demanded the computer when the police asked if it was her computer, she backed off. Very funny, peculiar, not haha. The DNC has problems that go deep.
Please post more materials on this mysterious and little-known conspiracy of ne’er-do-wells which you have uncovered through dogged sleuthing.
This is to “I walk barefoot because my shoes are bugged” paulie
Marky Mark Mark – you really need to keep up with what is going on. I am sure you can find all the info you need on the Awan conspiracy if you use a search engine like Duck Duck Go. Duck Duck Go is an app you can add to Chrome and it leaves no traces. 🙂 Your friends will never know you looked for it.
BTW, it is in the 70s here so I am wearing sandals. I rarely go barefoot and I don’t think my shoes are bugged because I have had the same shoes for the last 10 years. I am not as paranoid as you, living in my mother’s basement. I don’t even have a basement. 😉
yup Paul, and” A federal judge in Washington, D.C. has recused herself from a second case involving Trump dossier firm Fusion GPS.
Tanya S. Chutkan, an Obama appointee, recused herself on Monday from a case involving a dispute over subpoenas issued for Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the dossier.”
“Chutkan recused herself last month from another case involving Fusion GPS. The firm had filed suit against its bank, TD Bank, to keep it from complying with a subpoena issued by the House Intelligence Committee, which sought Fusion’s bank records.”
“Prior to her appointment to the federal bench, Chutkan was a partner at Boies, Schiller & Flexner (BSF), an international white shoe law firm founded by David Boies”
Gillibrand was also a partner at this same firm which has contributed $820,893 to her.
Small world ain’t it?

Jill, I had no idea that you were writing this. Check out my comment at 11:03 am. Precisely what I believe may, in fact, be transpiring.
It could be BB! I certainly put nothing past Chuckie!!!
Paul, I don’t disagree that DWS is a criminal sleazy person but this isn’t just a problem among Democrats. Plenty of Republicans fit the bill! A whole lot of war criminals all over the place, just to name one heinous crime.
“BTW–may I, as an ordinary citizen, go to the police with all the fake news put out by this govt. and the MSM which has resulted in the death of our soldiers and civilians in other nations, along with the destruction of several whole societies? Because if I can do this, I certainly will.”
That would certainly be a nice Christmassy time, wouldn’t it? Talking about how our press enables the good times to roll. Like their expert reporting on yellowcake and WMDs (well, except for the ones we gave to the holded-up’ critter…), secret deals with African neo nazi gangs to prosecute our war against a standing leading, then assassinating him via rectal bayonet placing, and he did die, as Ms. Clinton likes to gloat about.
Sip of eggnog…
Snicker lightly as we remember a President makes light of using drones for assassination around the world as a reminder to a young man who requested a date with his daughter. Assassination of an investigative reporter as shared by Noam Chomsky…
More light-hearted laughter…
The DNC, Fast ‘n Furious, and, here’s a good one… let’s sit quietly by while the enemies are at the gate in Benghazi…; that pesky Awan and the laptop… Seth Rich gotted suddenly…
That’s a lot for one time. Think I’m ready for bed.
I think some eggnog and chuckles will be the only thing that happens when revisiting all the proven lies over the past couple of admins.
slohrss29 – do you really like eggnog or is it because you spiked it with booze? I could never tolerate either way, 🙁

Ken – he allegedly molested someone. You are setting yourself up for a libel suit.
Vince Foster’s ghost is gonna sue me. Laughing out loud.
Ken – he might have a family who will file suit on his behalf.
Who is he?
Ken – so now he doesn’t exist. Is that going to be your defense?
He exists but since I did not name him how could he sue. I thought this was a legal blog not an illegal blog.
Ken – you described him enough to lay yourself open for a suit. If I were his family, I would sue on his behalf.
Can’t libel the dead.
Linda – you know I thought you couldn’t legally abort a baby, but Roe v. Wade taught me a lesson. Who knows what the SC will say about libeling the dead since you could make the claim their estate could be injured.
Wrong answer. Why don’t you think the United States Constitution applies to women?
This is to “merica was a better place when women were chattel” georgie
Marky Mark Mark – do you see any place in the Constitution that allows anyone to either perform or be the object of an abortion. You claimed to have gone to law school. You should have taken both Con 101 and 102, You should be able to answer this if you are who you say you are. If not, find the US Constitution on the internet and read it. Then get back to me with your answer.
Your belief that anyone here is concerned with what you know, or don’t know, about constitutional law is sorely misplaced. However, on the off chance that you are reaching outside your Pravda Faux News cage by taking baby-steps to think for yourself, I will point you in the direction to begin your own journey on your own time. Start by internalizing and synthesizing Griswold v. Connecticut.
This is to “wow, a whole new world has opened up for me now” georgie
Marky Mark Mark – refer to my comment to you on the Constitution, this is a reference to case law which is a mishmash of bad court decisions over the years. Just answer my question.

Good Lord, slohrss29. That is a truly sad story. And totally unbelievable. Surgeon stabs himself in the chest, so he can bleed out on the floor and have his 11 year old daughter find his body? He chooses to leave his 3 children orphaned? Will the Clintons EVER be made to answer for their crimes????? ( In this world, I mean.)
Da Clintons are responsible for every suicide in da world.
No, not da suicides. Just da murders.
Get Jimmy O’Keefe on da case.
A casual scan of reputable news sources will sooth your agitation regarding suicide; unless of course, you simply like being agitated.

It’s soothe, not sooth.
This is to Mark-I-can’t-spell-for-the-life-of-me.
Marky Mark Mark – there are NO reputable news sources anymore. They are all tainted.
Yet you state made up fact after made up fact to support your views. This is to shoeless paulie, May the bugs be with you.
Trump’s FCC Chair is eliminating net neutrality today with a Senate vote. After passage, corporations like Fox will be able to tar and feather any candidate who doesn’t agree to concentrate wealth for the oligarchs, blocking and slowing down other sites.
That whole expectation of police “exposing the dark part of the web” will be rewritten as corporations “voluntarily policing themselves” i.e. GOP deregulation.
Unqualified judges for sale to the highest bidders will make defamation suits un-winnable, echoing the trend in court decisions that allowed candidates to lie in campaign ads.
yep, Pai is a corporate stooge. Used to be a Verizon exec – he’ll get a million dollar job at one of the providers as pay back when he exits the FCC chair position.
T rump appointee Pai to wreck da internet.
This is what happens when you think PACER is one of Santa’s reindeer, harnessed between Dancer and Vixen.
The only way to end these witch hunts is for those who are falsely accused to stand up for themselves in the court. If he is innocent I applaud his taking action. Before anyone’s life and career are destroyed there needs to be more than just unsubstantiated accusations, especially when those accusations are coming from those with an obvious political ax to grind.
Having said that, does anyone believe that if the media outlets had received a similar report on a conservative that they would not have rushed into print without any vetting.
“If he is innocent”
See, that’s the problem. A forged complaint, not created or filed by the person named within, is not even an accusation, yet because of the subject matter people will insist on treating it as one.
There is no “if”. There is no accusation for him to be guilty or innocent of.
Drew – it is like the Trump dossier. I wonder if Fusion GPS prepared this.
Recently, a GOP state legislator faced allegations of an incident with a 17 year-old- girl. (He was a pastor at the time working at a shelter). He could have filed a defamation suit, but took a different route. It’s ironic that he was in the news prior to his election, for reportedly posting a comparison between the Obama’s and monkeys. What a surprise it will be for him, if God’s demographic presence, is a 17-year-old Black girl.
I wonder if she’ll bring up his public denials and the need to admit to one’s transgressions to gain entry into the pearly gates.
Linda, you’re gloating over a man’s suicide?
Shedding light on the phony Republican brand of “Christianity”, which was part of the package that brought evangelicals to the thrice-married and divorced, Bannon.
There is no Republican brand of Christianity. Christianity consists of people who follow Jesus. Mocking someone’s faith is not a good look.
Racial bigotry is not Christian. Bearing false witness against one’s neighbor is not Christian. It is not Christian to treat the vulnerable as you would not want to be treated.
What were those allegations that Bannon’s 2nd wife made?
You are describing behaviors of imperfect people. There has only been one perfect, sinless Christian in the history of the universe.
BTW, have you read the 10 suggestions? One of them suggests that one should not covet what others have. You might want to ponder that one.
The people you champion are thieves. There’s a commandment that covers that.
The people you champion are liars. There’s a commandment that covers that, also.
Research showed Trump lies an average 5 times a day.
That’s such an easy claim to make, isn’t it, Linda?
The excuse, “I’m not perfect” is invalidated when it is delivered with smugness. “Nobody’s perfect” ..”everybody does it” is not the humility prescribed in the religious message of forgiveness for transgressions. Sincere contrition is the intent.
Talking to yourself again?
Chuck must be worried.
If Schumer thinks he is right, then good on him. Time to fight back. If he is wrong, this could get messy.
It appears the Cernovich operation used fake documents. They messed with the wrong guy.
He’s guillty of much more than that.
More likely NYT WaPo and the DNC.
“This is a vicious attack on Schumer that vividly illustrates the hatefilled madness that has taken so many citizens on both the left and the right in today’s poisonous political environment.“
What? I thought America was being made great again. It’s a tremendous-fantastic success now, the likes of which no one has ever seen, believe me.
You thought wrong he’s a progressive and by defintion a progressive has rejected the Constitution and taken alleigiance to a foreign ideology there by violating the oath of office . That’s enough for me and any decent citixen of the our representative Constitutional Republic. And that goes for their supporters who in doing the same have rejected the social contract and with it their citizenship. They are undocumented illegals at that point and should having rejected our country should have been ejected. Schumer and Pelosi at the head of the list.
Yet, all of the recent political and/or business cuddling up with a “foreign ideology” (e.g. the Russian contacts that Trump’s team won’t admit) are between a Republican administration and people who are linked to Putin
and to an Israeli agenda.
“Decent” citizen? As if you know any. Pro tip: being intolerant, hateful, small-minded, spiteful, incurious, ill-informed, misogynistic, gullible, paranoid and bigoted aren’t considered the characteristics of “decent” citizens. As a bonus, engage someone to hold a spelling, grammar and sentence structure seminar down at the klavern hall prior to the next pillowcase fitting and hayride.
This is to “even my fake name is secret” half-bracket guy
Marky Mark Mark – funny (peculiar) you should complain about someone not using their full name when you don’t use yours. How you missed the irony is beyond me. Maybe the fumes from the mold in your mom’s basement are getting to you. After Xmas, you might want to get a check-up.
