Awaiting Bill O’Reilly’s Take

I have been checking twitter and eagerly await what Bill O’Reilly thinks about this photo:

You might remember that Al Franken and O’Reilly have nothing but contempt for one another. On The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly referred to Franken as Stuart Smalley, the name of a character he played on Saturday Night Live. It was his way of pointing out how unfit the former comedian was to hold a Senate seat and the contempt he had for him.

It appears that a lot of people have joined the tribe of ousted guys from important jobs. O’Reilly and Fox’s Roger Ailes were removed from their jobs at that network quickly and fiercely. Then followed Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and other Hollywoodites.

Looks like politicians are getting in on the action now, too. Aside from Bill Clinton, the guy who showed the way, so to speak when it comes to sexual harassment and even rape charges, there is Senator Menendez. He seems to like young girls on his trips to Orgy Island with a benefactor. Vice President Biden has been shown lately why he is referred to as “Handsy.” He likes ’em young, too. Of course there were Senators Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd who ordered a waitress sandwich at a certain restaurant they frequented.

Will there be any comeuppance for Franken? Not if the networks and newspapers have their way. It will be blacked out, just like everything else harmful to Democrats is. (See Menendez trial coverage – if you can find it.)

Someone else besides O’Reilly will be enjoying Franken’s discomfort. Remember Senator Norm Coleman? He was the Republican Senator from Minnesota who ran against Al Franken. He lost in a very tight election only because some ballots that were clearly marked for him were declared ineligible. Coleman should have kept his seat, but like always, the GOP (the governor was a Republican at that time – Tim Pawlenty) didn’t go to bat for him.

Have a good laugh, Senator Coleman! It’s the rare time Al Franken has been funny.

Moore Is Less

When President Trump went to Alabama to stump for Luther Strange in the primary, I listened to his speech.

Many conservatives had asked why he was backing the more GOPe candidate Strange instead of Judge Roy Moore. Moore would have been a natural for a Trump endorsement, since he leans right, too, but he spoke up for Strange. Many believed Trump had cut a deal with Strange backer Mitch McConnell.

Listening to Trump’s speech, I thought there is something Trump knows about Moore that we don’t. There is something that makes him want to distance himself from Moore. Now it turns out there is.

Perhaps McConnell – who I believe is the one behind the outing – told Trump that should Moore win the primary, bad things would come out about him. That’s what happened.

I’m not for the GOPe getting a scalp in this race, but I do agree with Hannity that in the next 24 hours Moore should either bring out absolutely conclusive proof of his innocence or get out of the race. Right now he is harming himself, his family, his state, his party and his nation.

If the Democrat were to win this race, Alabamians would regret having chosen him for the next three years. He could be an awful obstacle to the agenda they would prefer. I do believe something will be worked out to stop Moore. In addition, he’s standing in the way of the message on taxes and Obamacare’s repeal.

Freeze Her Out

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was given a jacket on her trip with the President to Asia. Her father, Mike Huckabee, wrote his appreciation on Twitter. A University of Memphis professor who saw that followed up with her own tweet:

The professor is Judy Cole, an assistant professor in the Loewenberg College of Nursing at the University of Memphis.

What kind of person, particularly in the medical field, would write something like that? She immediately got condemned on Twitter, as she should. Here are some of the responses she got:

“Please tell me you’re not allowed near the patients.”
“And you are trusted teaching young people?”
“This is a disgraceful comment – poor representative of a caring profession.”
“What a sick sad person you are. We’ll be sure to point this tweet out to your employer.”
“What do you expect a Democrat pos like Judy to say?? Karma will visit her soon.”

And Huckabee himself replied:

The University of Memphis promises a full investigation. We’ll see.

More on Moron Carusone

The man behind the Keurig attack on Hannity, Media Matters’ Angelo Carusone (picture in the story below) really ought to watch throwing stones at others. Or in Hannity’s case, coffee beans.

He’s been behind the campaign of Stop Rush, Stop Beck and Dump Trump projects of Soros funded Media Matters. But evidently, he’s not the compassionate, sensitive soul he expects others to be.

In October 2014, Daily Caller writer Patrick Howley found a lot of quotes from him that don’t make him look so nice.

“Question: What do Robert Downey Jr. and a random Banladeshi [sic] businessman have in common? Answer: They both love transvestites,” Carusone wrote in a Nov. 14, 2005 post entitled “Tranny Paradise,” his response to an article about a transvestite gang in Thailand. Carusone objected to the article’s description of transvestites as “attractive” and made racist remarks about Bangladeshi men.

“Uhhh. Did you notice the word attractive? What the f–k is that doing in there? Is the write[r] a tranny lover too? Or, perhaps he’s trying to justify how these trannies tricked this Bangladeshi in the first place? Look man, we don’t need to know whether or not they were attractive. The fucking guy was Bangladeshi. And while we’re out, what the hell was he doing with $7,300 worth of stuff. The guy’s Banladeshi!” Carusone wrote.

“Shouldn’t the police officer give at least some details. Such as: stay away from tranny bars, stay away from placese where Eddie Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. have/are visiting, don’t fucking kiss a transvestite, don’t bring a group of transvestites back to your room, etc…,” Carusone added.

In another Oct. 20, 2005 post, Carusone made an anti-Semitic remark.

“Thanks to my adorable boyfriend (come on, despite his jewry, you KNOW he’s adorable), my interest in Comedy Central’s hit TV show South Park has begun to pick up (again),” Carusone wrote.

On Nov. 18, 2005, Carusone turned his criticism toward “ugly” gays and female bartenders.

“Wednesday night I hit up the club 2686, formerly known as Luxe and for some odd reason still referred to by homos as Luxe,” Carusone wrote. “I went with my good friend Mike, who’s quite the badboy/notorious homo, although despite his omnipresence, he manages to live a reasonably drama free life. It’s almost shocking…”

Caursone’s “reasons not to go” to the club included “Bartenders are not attractive (*gasp* they even have some female bartenders)” and “Long Island gays are primarily ugly, except for a select few.”

Carusone also mentioned his onetime Republican Party leanings in archived blog material, transcripts of which were reviewed by TheDC, and praised Condoleezza Rice as “sassy, smart, and I like her politics” and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (a target of Carusone’s post-Media Matters hiring criticism) as “brilliant.”

Carusone sounded more like a future Media Matters employee when he called Dick Cheney “evil” or wrote, “I am infatuated with the power, politics, prestige and personal elements of The Presidency. A position which I will lust after my life and never obtain; it will forever tease me.”

So when you can’t compete, you just throw trash at others. What a guy!

Time for a Cup of Sanity

More developments broke yesterday on the boycott of Keurig products instigated by Hannity supporters after the company pulled their ads. Keurig had been informed by Media Matters for America president Angelo Carusone that Hannity supported Judge Roy Moore and pedophile/sexual harrassment.

Here’s a photo of Carusone. Was this selfie taken in his parents’ basement?

Hannity said yesterday and last night that Keurig had walked back their threat. Have they continued sponsorship? That is not sure yet.

Disturbingly, In an article Monday afternoon, “The Wrap” put the number of sponsor defections at eleven. Keurig was still on the list.

Disturbing, too, is how quickly all this escalates. In the current climate, allege sexual harassment and the herd starts running. The Left is masterful at creating chaos and panic. They desire to hurt the opposition and morality has nothing to do with their practices in achieving it.

More Than Moore

The false outrage about something Judge Roy Moore might have done 40 years ago is, in itself outrageous.

The Democrats and GOPe act as if they have the high moral ground. They don’t. I don’t know if Moore did something, but I do know there have been plenty of outrageous capers going around in D.C. Take former Vice President Joe Biden. He can’t keep his hands off women, as evident in this clip.

The behavior of Ted Kennedy, which even involved the death of a young woman, didn’t get him kicked out of politics. Today he’s regarded as the “lion of the Senate.” No outrage there. Doesn’t seem like he acted too nobly towards his wife, Joan. After marrying him she succumbed to alcoholism and ended up living on the street.

Then there is currently Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ). He’s on trial for bribery in addition to his dubious behavior reported around young girls on flights to the Caribbean. In fact, his whole trial has gone dark. The jurors couldn’t reach a conclusion and one decided it was more important that she keep her vacation plans than participate in our justice system.

Such as her participation was. She confessed she didn’t know what a senator was and asked for a definition. She blabbed about jurors’ verdicts.

Yet Moore may have to pay a price? What’s the definition of insanity?

Backlash Brewing Against Coffeemaker

If you’re taking a sip from coffee made in the popular Keurig machine, you might want to set it down.

That is, if you’re a fan or supporter of Sean Hannity. It might leave a bitter taste in your mouth. After Hannity’s radio interview with Judge Roy Moore and then his panel analysis of it on his TV show, the liberal rag Media Matters for America was spitting mad. Or at least they pretended to be.

MM tweeted “Good afternoon @Keurig. You are currently sponsoring Sean Hannity’s show. He defends child molester Roy Moore and attacks women who speak out against sexual harassment. Please reconsider.”

Keurig then replied, “Angelo, (contact at Keurig) thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.”

They did pull their ads. Frankly, I thought Hannity was circumspect in his treatment of the Moore situation. He didn’t harass the Judge on his radio show and he didn’t particularly defend him when Greg Jarrett and Geraldo Rivera of Fox News attacked Moore’s comments and viewed him as guilty of going after a 14-year-old girl.

None of that matters to liberals. They see an opportunity to get a highly popular conservative off the air. Smears + boycott might = Fox pulling the show.

Fans didn’t see it that way. They’ve been using twitter to encourage people to return their coffeemakers and/or threaten to stop buying them. #BoycottKeurig is trending.

Hannity enjoyed the backlash. He tweeted, “I am humbled and speechless and frankly laughing my ass off. I love all my deplorable friends. Thank you and Game on!!”

If you want to let Keurig know what you think, their number is 866-901-2739.

The company is risking a lot with this boycott. They’re already on shaky ground after the Huffington Post reported “Your Keurig Machine May Be Covered In Bacteria And Mold.” The report says ”Your Keurig coffee machine may be a bacteria breeding ground, according to a recent test performed by CBS stations in Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Chicago. The news outlets swabbed the various parts of 29 Keurig coffee makers, sending samples to a lab to be analyzed. One swab from a machine in Pittsburgh contained 4.6 million colonies of bacteria and mold, and E.coli showed up on a machine in Dallas. More than half of the machines came back with bacteria counts in the millions, CBS Pittsburgh reports.”

The company is reacting stupidly. They won’t get it until coffee sales are down to a trickle.

Cohen’s Latest Idiocy

Whenever someone comes up with an idea to change voting, you can smell something foul in the air.

It’s usually a Democrat who announces he/she/cisgender wants to change when, where or how we vote. That’s because they like to manipulate the system in the hopes that it will eek out a few more ballots for them.

Steve Cohen says he wants to change the day we vote. He writes in his weekly email:

On Tuesday, I joined Martin Luther King III and Congressional colleagues representing districts from around the country, as well as Martin Luther King III, to promote the Weekend Voting Act.

Making voting days convenient for more citizens is the right thing to do. We need to do everything we can to increase voter participation, truly make democracy work and to make it a beacon for the rest of the world.

Those who don’t vote, especially hard-working hourly workers, often cite their inability to get away on a Tuesday, or having to wait hours during the work week, as reasons for not exercising their precious right to make their policy and candidate preferences known.

The Weekend Voting Act would move Election Day to the first Saturday and Sunday after the first Friday in November in every even year for elections of Representatives to Congress, and in every fourth year for the election of President and Vice President. It would make it easier and more convenient for all Americans to exercise their right to vote, helping to reduce long lines at the polls and increasing voter participation.

The tradition of holding federal elections on the first Tuesday of November is an outdated requirement that began with an act of Congress in 1845. Tuesday was selected for its comparative convenience because it was a designated “court day” and the day in which land-owning voters would typically be in town to conduct business. The tradition was based on the then-agrarian American society.

Well. He brings race in it immediately by name dropping King.

He says we need to encourage voting. Why? Let the informed vote and let the others who don’t care or don’t have an opinion stay home. There is no need for everyone to have to make a decision. In fact, not voting is actually a way of voting in that you can also be expressing your disdain for the candidates or the system. I heartily disagree that more people must vote.

I also don’t think there is any problem whatsoever in finding the time to vote. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Tennessee. If by some odd chance you work these hours without a lunch break, you can opt to vote early. Polls are open for early voting for about three weeks. If you care enough to vote, you’ll work that out.

Why do we need two days as he is promoting? Sunday is for most Americans, the day to go to church. Then that is disrupted. Saturday is a day for other religions to attend services; they don’t need that messed up either. Can’t the Lord have one day? Would he like two days so that his party can check vote totals and play hanky panky with the results?

Cohen then appeals to modernity. Surely we don’t want to be back in the agrarian age by voting on Tuesday? Tuesday strikes me as the right day. A day after business resumes on Monday yet before the week hurries to its conclusion. Just because other countries do it doesn’t impress me either. So what.

Next he’ll want voting online. You can imagine the opportunities for hacking with that method. Or, he’ll want mandatory voting, which is gaining traction among Progressives.

Rather than wasting time on improbable causes, why doesn’t he try some real issues, like crime? I’d vote for that.
