sexual harassment

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Spare the sex lectures, bring back the Founders’ morality and religion

John Adams was right – the Constitution can only thrive among a moralistic and religious people. If America is to be brought down it will occur from the inside-out. Our political leaders would do well to take Adams’ words to heart and act accordingly before it’s too late.

Franken's Phony Finale

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Franken didn’t so much confess to wrongdoing as naïveté at the fury of this purge. His attempts to honor the “conversation,” he wimpered, had given the “impression” of guilt. Finally understanding that he couldn’t stop his expulsion, he took refuge in the last act of a male feminist pig — adopting the airs of a victim while pulling out his chair for a female successor.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Roy Moore’s holier-than- thou critics prove elections have consequences

Regardless of one’s personal opinions on candidates, elections do have consequences – President Donald Trump is an excellent example. Good policy follows from sound votes – don’t let the integrity-less naysayers like Jeff Flake convince you otherwise. Vote for Roy Moore on Tuesday.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could today’s media report on what really happened at Pearl Harbor?

Pearl Harbor Day deserves its remembrances as a tragic event that eventually brought a nation together. Back then Americans recognized a common enemy and got to work destroying it. Journalists helped in the endeavor – they were a long way from today’s jaundiced news reporters.

Cruelty and Sexual Harassment

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The malicious men currently in the news knew that too often the slow-coach Human Resources Department would merely catalogue their assaults and weigh the costs and benefits of endangering the careers of rich, powerful, famous predators. Given that fact, lots of cowards like Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, or Harvey Weinstein did what all cruel bullies do. They attacked and humiliated the vulnerable without worry of repercussions — and they did so with wanton meanness apparently as sick relish.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: In politics is there really such thing as the ‘lesser of two evils?’

Political races should be judged on their own merits. Candidates by and large aren’t sinister and therefore can’t really be deemed “the lesser of two evils.” Roy Moore deserves a fair hearing by Alabama’s voters next week and despite what the media claims it appears as though he’ll get it.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Football team analogy explains why D’s & R’s won’t ever get along

It’s nice to see GOP congressional leaders willing to play a little hardball with the budget. No doubt having Trump acting as the “coach” is giving them some additional confidence. No one but the media expects the parties to get along; whoever wins will be the best “team.”

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Despite media claims the voters care about taxes, not Flynn’s FBI problem

The controversy surrounding Michael Flynn will no doubt prove to have little staying power. The GOP’s upcoming battle in conference committee over the tax bill will dominate the headlines. Media “ants” will continue their wayward scurrying but the public knows what really matters.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Media culture that accepts everything honors & appreciates nothing

No one expects much truth-telling from the media anymore but some of these recent stories have really gone over the top. Since they can’t get to Donald Trump they’re now smearing First Lady Melania. It’s all part of the larger cultural war to reclaim what was once a great America.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Lauer is just the latest establishmentarian destroyed by his own libido

Matt Lauer is gone and people will get over it. The real question now is where does all the “inappropriate sexual behavior” end and how do we determine who’s telling the truth? Harvey Weinstein unknowingly opened Pandora’s Box and there’s no way to seal and lock it again.

The Pelosi Rule: Our Pigs Are Better Than Their Pigs

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The logic of the Steinem rule laid the groundwork for the Pelosi rule, in that if words are more relevant than deeds, then thought is more important than conduct. In the end, this means ideology is more important than morality. Only by clinging to such warped criteria of who is and who is not fit for public life could feminism turn its pigs into icons and conservatives into pigs.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: If GOP tax reform fails, prepare the way for President Bernie in 2020

It’s fair to surmise Bernie Sanders will never be president. With that being said, the GOP still has a long way to go in selling its tax plan and the benefits of the Trump agenda to the public. It could begin with passing a tax cut/reform bill by Christmas. As for the rest, wait and see.

Why Have Liberals Been Such Horrendous Hypocrites on Women's Rights?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

To ask the question why liberals have been such hypocrites about their treatment of women and about women's rights is not to say that conservatives haven't been. They have. And some of their actions have been pretty bad. But by comparison, GOP hypocrisy in this area has been quite literally dwarfed by the Democrats.

Democrats’ depravity laid bare by Bill Clinton

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

What is breathtaking is how partisan and politically transactional Democrats are when it comes to harassing, molesting and raping girls, interns and women. If it’s someone on their team wearing one of their jerseys, its just crazy Uncle Joe or randy Bubba. It is how you wind up with people like Sen. Albert Franken, the television comedian who prefers his prey asleep.

Mark Levin to Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan: ‘Resign’

Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times

Conservative radio star Mark Levin sent a blunt rebuke Republican leadership’s way, calling on Sen. Mitch McConnell and Rep. Paul Ryan to step away from their offices and resign. It’s all about the sexual harassment charges that have surfaced on Capitol Hill — the many, many allegations and accusations that have surfaced by various female congressional members, staffers and interns against seated congressmen and staffers. Levin blames leadership for the atmosphere.

The Manipulative Feminism of Megyn Kelly

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Kelly’s attempt to put herself in the middle of the “discussion about sexual harassment” only undercuts its seriousness, reducing it to bickering among overpaid, egotistical celebrities. Lost in all the ponderous talk about the need for “systemic change” is the glaring irony that figures such as Megyn Kelly gained, not lost, jobs from that system. Were that system abolished, Megyn Kelly wouldn’t have a career.

Ingraham: Clintons Pioneered the War on Women

Daniel Greenfield, Truth Revolt

"Democrats claim to champion women's rights in the workplace, against sexual harassment and date rape, but the instinct here was to duck, cover and blame the young intern. The Clintons pioneered the war on women in the 1990s," Laura Ingraham concluded.
