Aloha! How come Lisa Murkowski isn't calling for Franken to resign?

Did everyone see the new Franken accuser?

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/12/06/another-woman-comes-forward-accuses-franken-of-misconduct-its-my-right-as-an-entertainer

The woman alleged that Franken tried to forcibly kiss her after an episode of his radio show.

She said that she was there with her boss, who had just left the studio. The woman added that she was in the process of gathering her personal belongings when Franken appeared.

“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me,” the woman told the outlet. “It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked.”

She said she was “startled” by the occurrence and was able to break away from Franken.

“I just sort of booked it toward the door,” the woman added, “And he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.'”

Heh.

The Franken pile-on is all about Moore, imo

I disagree. The Trump Russian collusion fairytale has collapsed so now the Swamp is trying a different approach to destroy Trump. Once Franken is forced out, the leftwing media and DC Establishment will be nonstop painting the narrative that Trump is guilty of far worse sexual assaults than what Franken did.

How come Sen Claire McCaskell is demanding Al Franken resign? As I recall she is the Senator who said she wouldn't let her daughter anywhere near Bill Clinton but she didn't say a word about demanding he resign? Other than being a Democrat, why the double standard?

TK, I posted back in early Nov. that I had had great success following the advice of Dr. David Ludwig via his book “Always Hungry”. In 7 weeks I dropped 31 pounds, lowered my A1C from 7.2 to 6.2 and lowered my BP to 100/77. My Doc took me off most of my meds. I stayed active throughout but couldn’t really increase my “exercise” due to a failed left knee. I tell people I haven’t been dieting but have changed my nutritional approach.

I agree with all of the JOMers that recommend getting off processed carbs and refined sugars. Poison, pure and simple. Tasty, tasty poison.

I disagree with Buckeye re: avoid fruits. Ludwig says avoid tropical fruits. I eat a lot of grapes and apples. I used to be in total agreement with James D. That Weight Watchers was the only approach that would work long term as it made you think about what you were eating by using points. I disagree with JIB that alcohol must be avoided. I go out twice a week with friends but drink lite beer and drink whiskey if I feel like a drink at home.

Caveat: everybody responds differently based on their gut biome. Your results my vary.

A man goes to his Dr as he has been feeling poorly. Tests are run and the Dr tells the man he has to stop drinking, smoking and running around with fast women or he will die within 6 months. The man exclaims that he does none of those things. The Dr then tells him that if that is the case he is sorry but there is no hope for him.

Franken's replacement is going to be an interesting question.

Governor Dayton is clinically brain dead and will do whatever he is instructed. Would Tom Perez allow Keith Ellison to wind up in the Senate after their fight for DNC chair? I highly doubt it.

My money's on Betty McCollum, who represents the second most reliable DFL district in the state. Betty's dumb as a bag of hammers, but she's a female and that's all that really matters.

Wildcard choice would be State Auditor and perennial aspirant to higher office, Rebecca Otto. Big red flag would be Becky's husband, who is a screenwriter, producer, activist, and blogger for Huffpo, ie. strong candidate for the Perv Pool.

Jane

Rocco,

I'm so sorry. I never thought about my father, and know next to nothing about him, like his b-day or their anniversary because my mother refused to utter a word about him for my entire life. She also worked 3 jobs and never got a penny from the guy. I did go to his funeral and saw my 1/2 brother there who could be my twin.

When I visited my 92 year old mother last month I told her about the funeral (which was probably 20 years ago) and we laughed. My mother didn't care much for me because I reminded her so much of him. She never ever got over it. 5 years ago she told me that my, and her last name should be illegal.

Porchlight

I would have said Ellison but I think you're right, BlueOx. Got to be a woman.

Way behind, and I'm doing catch-up on the latest accuser of John Conyer's.

Morse said Conyers brought up the then-developing investigation into the disappearance of former federal intern Chandra Levy. ‘He said he had insider information on the case. I don’t know if he meant it to be threatening, but I took it that way,"

Lets ask Conyer's if he has any insider info on the Dead Intern so we can kill 2 slimeballs with 1 stone.

The calls for Franken to resign for his relatively minor infractions are because Conyers resigned (the white guy has to also), and as always, to give ammo against Republicans, mainly Moore and Trump. And of course they want to be able to replace Franken with a Democrat who will then have the power of incumbency when up for reelection.

The Franken thing bothers me. It seems like he was doing this frequently enough that something should be done about it. If this came up about someone in the workplace doing it to coworkers or outside vendors, the offending guy would be fired. But this is such minor league stuff, really best handled by the lady involved kicking guy in the nuts.

I do get the feeling that we are setting up for a season of "why can't you expel Roy Moore"? (Don't think the end game is Trump, because the Senators really don't have much say about what that guy does).

Posted by: jimmyk | December 06, 2017 at 03:56 PM

I have to tell you, jimmyk, I'm suddenly soooo unimpressed with Commentary Magazine that I took them off my sidebar.

The Democrats have been in the business of branding the Republicans since Ronald Reagan. Probably even before. Republican Culture of Corruption, Republican War on Women, Republican Tax Cuts for the Rich, and of course let's not forget that opposition to ObamaCare or anything else Obama was Racist. Conservatives have lower IQs, Conservatism is a mental condition. Democrats have been branding Republicans for the last 50 years.

Finally somebody -- Trump -- is branding Democrats. Well. Maybe GOPe and NeverTrumpers really do have lower IQS. They don't seem to get that.

And now here we are looking at the all these liberal icons going down for improper sexual behavior. Does anybody think that blood bath would be going on if Trump hadn't stuffed it right back up Hillary's ass when she accused him of sexism in the debates?

Trump has destroyed the Democrats' PC method of attack and turned it against them. Accusations of sexual misconduct were always intended to take down Republicans while leave the "feminist" Democrats standing. Proof of that is history of Matt Lauer and the fact that for 10 years or more his abuse was common knowledge, even joked about at a celebrity roast.

without Trump going on the attack, celebrity journalists would still be covering for celebrity liberals, and there's a good chance that the women who've come forward against Weinstein, Lauer, and the rest of them would not have been able to do it.

TKI am of the opinion that I need to lose the weight 1st. Previously I have shed weight quickly by fasting but now I have no idea what the impact on my cardiovascular system will be. A quick scan of the interwebs tells me that fasting will both raise and lower my BP.

Any ideas on whether a more rapid weight loss plan is in order? I really don't want to up the beta-blocker dose and I assume a lean mean TK would prevent that.

Burn him at the stake!

I’d been married for two years at the time; I don’t let my husband touch me like that in public because I believe it diminishes me as a professional woman.

Please.

It shrunk me. It’s like I was no longer a person, only ornamental. It said, “You don’t matter—and I do.” He wanted to cop a feel and he demonstrated he didn’t need my permission.

Matt Lauer has what we call in recovery circles "a dick problem."

Self-pity is a symptom of any type of addiction. So all of the "woe is me" stuff that will seep from his pie hole is just that-- self-pity.

Self-pity kills. Wouldn't be surprised if he climbs into a bottle. It's not to be played with.

Some folks here in Berkeley (north Berkeley conservatives) believe that Lauer has been shown the capital T truth about himself and has a chance to make it right for his children.

Some people scoff when they hear about "doing it for the children." Well, he is their father. And whether he believes he did or not, he signed up for the role and will play it for their entire lives. So why not, Matt. Get clean. Forgive yourself. Stop victimizing other human beings with your dick problem and rearrange your way of thinking and functioning in the world--- for the benefit of your children.

Kids can smell self-pity a mile away. So get to work and let a knowledgeable professional in he field of dick problems kick your ass and clean you out. Time for "Matt the Lauer" to die to himself and clean up his side of the street.

Chances are you're done in *that* world Matt, from whence you came. But there is a reason for all of this Matt--- and they are looking at you. You are their father.

Hold onto that truth and perhaps you'll be able to forgive yourself and be forgiven by the One Who Left You Here--- left you here for a purpose you've yet to figure out, but might before you perish.

Good luck, Matthew Lauer. I've said one prayer about you and the lives of those you've set ablaze (wife and children and perhaps even your parents if they are still with us).

No one deserves to be shamed by what you've done.

This is all up to you.

TK, I will weigh in with another perspective. I lost 130lbs (and got off metaprolol along the way, too) between Jan 2015 and April 2016 by using MyFitnessPal. I measure EVERYTHING that I eat, and enter it all into my phone. (It has turned my life into an endless chemistry lab, but, heck, it's a hobby...)

For 2015 I used the Pacer app on my phone to measure activity and earn extra calories. I got a Fitbit for Christmas in 2016 and that has made things easier.

DrF has been logging since the beginning of the year and has lost 50lbs. Since he is a physicist and teaches lab, he takes great pride in his ability to estimate the things that I measure and calculate. (One time we were standing in the kitchen, and he had a Nonni's biscotti and was trying to figure out if it was the 18g one or the 21g one. He went back and forth talking about it, until I finally hit the "on" button on the scale that was on the counter a few INCHES from his hand, snatched the cookie, plopped it on the scale, and measured it as 22g!)

In general, once you pay attention to carbohydrates, you can see that you can consume a large number of carb calories and still be hungry. The way I put it is this -- so you have 3 things you want:

1) Eat lots of carbohydrates.

2) Not be ravenously hungry.

3) Not eat more calories than you burn.

I have found that I can have any two, but not all three.

Now that I've spent 16 months at "maintain weight" it helps that I have to eat myself into the slight red territory in order that I don't lose more weight. Which I really really enjoy.

Extraneus

Proof of that is history of Matt Lauer and the fact that for 10 years or more his abuse was common knowledge, even joked about at a celebrity roast.

The woman who made the first complaint (the one that got him fired) described a situation which started out consensual, but somewhere along the way the consent ended. Probably before she blacked out from the excruciating pain she was in. Definitely by the time she had come to and needed to go to the emergency room.

(And while we are on the subject of enablers, Lauer's assistant who drove the victim to the ER is the second scummiest person in the incident. I'm speculating that it wasn't the first time, nor the last...)

Roy Moore - former ephebophile

Those who follow Thomas Wictor know what that term means. A pedophile is sexually attracted to prepubscent children. An ephebophile is sexually attracted to postpubescent teenagers (ex aged 16-18). The thing is, like pedophilia if Moore was an ephebophile that is something that he would still be affected by over the past 40 years. Joe Biden is a better example of that kind of behavior. Moore hasn't displayed that kind of behavior since the late 70s/early 80s. Society has obviously changed a lot over the past 40+ years but its an indisputable fact that for previous generations it was socially acceptable for grown men to seek out teenage girls to get married. That was one way to ensure you were marrying a virgin. In 2017 it may seem extremely odd that in the 1970s Moore was dating 17 year olds. That wasn't the case back then and the fact that Moore asked their parents permission seems to indicate to me he was looking for a spouse.

I was at a diner once at a family gathering, sitting next to my ex-wife's 95-year-old grandfather. A fetching young waitress, probably 18, walked by and old Grandpa leaned over so he could talk into my ear.

"You can almost hear the meow..."

Ephebophile or normal human male? You make the call.

Four months have passed since 20 members of the House Judiciary Committee demanded a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton. No action from the Department of Justice has been taken.

As members of the Judiciary Committee, we have demanded an investigation into the FBI’s procedures, practices, oversight and reporting. If biased agents have tainted evidence, we need to see it. If politically-interested prosecutors have an agenda, we need to know it. If our government institutions are being undermined by the deep state, we must expose it.

After all, equal treatment under the law is just one thing that makes America so special.

Special indeed!

Soon we'll see a scholarly piece about how conservatives are more likely to be ephebophiles, but I honestly have no idea about Grandpa's politics.
