Faces Of Evil: Bill Clinton, Al Franken, Charlie Rose and Glenn Thrush All Face New Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Have we entered a time when justice will begin to prevail in America?  For decades, celebrities, politicians and those in other positions of power have been engaging in very serious sexual misconduct, and victims have felt powerless to do anything about it.  But now thanks to Harvey Weinstein, the dam appears to be breaking and all of a sudden a flood of allegations is coming out.  On Monday, we learned of brand new accusations against Bill Clinton, Al Franken, Charlie Rose and New York Times journalist Glenn Thrush.

 

Let’s start with Thrush, because many find his case to be the most ironic.  The New York Times is supposed to be a paragon of political correctness, and yet it is being alleged that one of their most highly decorated reporters has been sexually harassing women for a very long time

Vox interviewed multiple women who alleged sexual misconduct against Thrush, including unwanted groping and kissing.

Laura McGann, the editorial director at Vox and the author of the story, described an incident at a bar five years ago, when she and Thrush were colleagues at Politico.

“He slid into my side of the booth, blocking me in,” she wrote. “I was wearing a skirt, and he put his hand on my thigh. He started kissing me. I pulled myself together and got out of there, shoving him on my way out.”

She wrote that she found a “pattern” in Thrush’s behavior through interviews with other women.

Thrush has already been suspended by the New York Times, and this is likely the end of his journalistic career.

Meanwhile, eight different women have come forward to accuse Charlie Rose of making “unwanted sexual advances”

And just minutes ago, the Washington Post reported that eight women have come forward to accuse legendary Emmy-winning broadcast journalist Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, and groping their breasts, butts or generals.

The women were either employees or aspired to work for Rose at “the Charlie Rose Show”. The alleged harassment spans from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011. The women ranged in age between 21 to 37 at the time the harassment took place. Rose, 75, has a show that airs on PBS. He also co-hosts “CBS This Morning” and is a contributing correspondent at “60 Minutes”.

Like Thrush, Rose has been suspended by both CBS and PBS, and his journalistic career is probably over too.

Moving over to the world of politics, a second woman has come forward to accuse Senator Al Franken of sexual misconduct.  According to Lindsay Menz, Al Franken put his full hand on her bottom as they were taking a photo together at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010

As her husband was getting ready to take their picture, Menz says that Franken ‘pulled me in really close, like awkward close’ and then ‘put his hand full-fledged on my rear’.

‘It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek. It wasn’t around my waist. It wasn’t around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt. I was like, ** ** ***, what’s happening,’ she said.

She said the moment last four seconds, and that immediately after the photo was taken, she left Franken’s side without saying a word.

This took place a full two years after Franken had already been in office, and it may be the final nail in the coffin that finally forces him to resign.

Meanwhile, four new women have come foward to accuse former president Bill Clinton of sexual harassment.  The following comes from the Daily Mail

The new allegations refer to incidents that took place more than 10 years ago, in the early 2000s, when Clinton was hired by Ron Burkle, the playboy billionaire investor, to work at his Yucaipa companies.

Clinton helped Burkle generate business and flew around the world with a flock of beautiful young women on Burkle’s private jet, which was nicknamed ‘Air **** One.’

The four women, who have not yet revealed their identities, were employed in low-level positions at the Burkle organization when they were in their late teens and claim they were sexually assaulted by the former president.

After all these years, is the truth finally starting to catch up with Bill Clinton?

Of course Clinton and Franken are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to sexual misconduct in Washington.  As I wrote about yesterday, 264 cases of sexual harassment in Congress have been settled since the beginning of 1997, and the total amount of money paid out in those settlements has been $17,250,854.  The American people deserve to know who was accused of sexual harassment in all of those cases, because it was taxpayer money that was used to pay all of those settlements.

In my new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I talk about the consequences of turning our back on God as a society.  Just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is multiplying all around us, and we definitely need to turn back to God.

But the fact that light is being shined in some very dark places gives me hope.  I truly do believe that we can change this nation, and that includes taking back our very corrupt government.

It is when things are the darkest that light is needed the most, and let all of us rise up and be lights at this very dark time.

Michael Snyder is a Republican candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, and you can learn how you can get involved in the campaign on his official website. His new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters” is available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.

    Naming and exposing sexual predators is a good start at draining the swamp! Let’s pray there is a lot more truth and transparency forthcoming during the Trump presidency. It is long overdue! I’m tired of TPTB sweeping crap under the rug!

  • TheLulzWarrior

    Hollywood and Washington really does have a rape culture and it isn´t just women that are the targets of it either.

    • It’s never been just women. The more an abuser abuses, the bigger kicks he needs. This will mean he devolves into girls under 18, boys under 18, or even grown dudes. JUST because they are more about hurting their victim and wielding power over them rather than being just about a consensual sexual encounter.

  • Isaac

    “Faces of evil”?

    What about Trump?

    16 women have accused Trump.

    It isn’t a coincidence that accusations against Weinstein came out in October, the same month that the tape of Trump’s “locker room talk” came out last year.

    The women are coming after Trump and they aren’t going to stop until they get him.

    • Marvin

      You’re dreaming. All these women are Democrat operatives, some being paid. Trump is not a rapist like Slick Willie. It’s not his style. All Trump has had to do is snap his fingers, and the women follow him.

      • Go back to Return of Kings. At least several of Crooked Donald’s victims are Republicans whose lives have been threatened by Crooked Donald’s minions… And until only recently Crooked Donald was a lifelong Democrat. If you have any proof of ANYone being paid or being an operative, then please provide it. I mean, I know it feels good to repeat unsubstantiated claims you get from “Gateway Pundit” (eternal LOLs at anyone who believes that site!), but people in the real world need real evidence. If you have it, please share it.

        Donald has admitted to being a vile, womanizing pig to his former best buddy, Howard Stern, NUMEROUS times… yet when a *woman* says that Crooked Donald is a vile, womanizing pig, you people flip out and call her a liar for confirming what Donald already stated.

  • Isaac

    Clinton, Franken, Weinstein, Rose and others got what they deserve. You can’t mistreat women and get away with it.

    Roy Moore may either end up losing the election or end up booted from the Senate. Either way, the women have come after him and they ain’t going to stop till they win and he loses.

  • davidnrobyn

    Don’t get your hopes up. My scam meter is pegging right now. You can be sure that if the illusion of justice is happening, it’s happening because some VERY powerful people have decided it’s to be, and are pulling the strings on their puppets. And the string-pullers are even more evil than the puppets, if that can be imagined.

    • Skywatcher57

      God has truly given you eyes to see! You are so right!

  • davidnrobyn

    Re: Bill Clinton–Huh??? What’s different now, except that he’s not Prez? Wasn’t what they knew in the ’90s enough? C’mon, this is ridiculous. It’s SO obvious that this is for show–see my comment below.

  • davidnrobyn

    Michael, if you’re hopeful that the United States will reform itself apart from national repentance, I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

    • Skywatcher57

      AMEN!

  • Skywatcher57

    Apart from judgment before the Great White throne of God, none of these clowns are going to see justice served to them. They can buy their way out of anything and everything, and this is readily apparent, as the Clintons and others have not been arrested yet, and WON’T BE!

    They and other sexual deviates and predators are like N. Korea…a smokescreen to hide the really big threatening issues behind! I’m no prophet, but I can tell you this with certainty… It is all too easy to accuse someone of sexual misconduct! Just pick up the phone or go to the cop shop and lodge a false accusation! Done! The trap is sprung and now, it is up to potentially innocent people to try to prove their innocence, while the media strongly encourages everybody to condemn them before due process!

    This is a very clever ploy being used by both sides in their attempt to have things go their own way. Innocent people will lose their careers, reputations, and yes, even their lives! The stress and pressures of false accusations and the financial burden will be too much to stand; they’ll “jump off the train of life”…all for nought.
    Once the public has found anybody guilty, it’s very difficult to come out from under that shadow of presumption and enforced guilt.

    To make false allegations of sexual misconduct are too easy, and there should be a statute of limitations! Why all of a sudden do these women and others come out of the woodwork after ALL those many years…after the accused is being offered a prestigious position or are doing well for themselves? That is the whole crux of the matter! If these things had really happened so long ago, why wait to report the crimes when the accused is in the limelight of the public eye?

    This is one of three things:
    1. False accusation to prevent what they perceive to be a hidden agenda about to be carried out…

    2. It is pure vindictiveness because of guile, envy, and or jealousy…

    3. OR they’ve been paid by George Soros to do these things. He’s a very ruthless piece of slime, and he’s not above doing such an evil thing. The lives of others mean absolutely nothing to him!

    This cancer runs so deep within the “governmental” circles of thuggery, that it can never be dealt with this side of Heaven. It is totally impossible to totally drain the swamp, when those within Trump’s own party and administration have hogtied his hands, limiting what he can and cannot do! For some reason, he doesn’t have the same executive power and authority that Ovomit had. They will pull out all of the stops and do whatever they have to do to protect themselves and each other. It wouldn’t surprise me if one morning, they are all discovered to have moved to an island in some other part of the world, with impunity, to live in the lap of luxury and wickedness. Not to worry! God has kept a perfect record of all their transgressions; nothing escapes His very watchful eyes! He will reward them accordingly in due season. We’ll let Him deal with them; what are WE doing for Him?

    • “It is all too easy to accuse someone of sexual misconduct!”

      True… but getting the police, or Human Resources, or the school dean to give any sort of ԁamn is an ENTIRELY different story. No one wants to believe that “good men” would ever do such a thing, and they immediately start making excuses for him — that’s even without KNOWING him first. That’s correct, police, deans, and higher-ups at work will immediately start gaslighting the [alleged] victim, asking if she’s 10,000% positive that she can prove it beyond any doubt, so as not to “ruin” this good man’s entire life… again, this is often before the people have ever heard of the alleged harasser.

      So sure, you think it’s easy to accuse someone of misconduct, but the victims’ lives are only beginning to spiral downward once she’s publicly come forward with her claims. The guy otoh gets all the sympathy and understanding, and the police/dean/human resource employees even try to sketch out how the girl might just regret the encounter or might just be a raving slμt, etc.

    You should watch The House I Live In.
    It’s about the war on drugs and is free to watch on Amazon Video.

    If you win please do something about the prison industrial complex. So sickening

    • davidnrobyn

      Yes, we’ve got 5% of the world’s population and 25% of the incarcerated. Prisons are big business, and they try to keep the occupancy rate up. There are four (4) times as many people incarcerated now as there were around 1980. The population is about 20-25% higher now, NOT 300%. What’s changed? The war on (some) drugs. And the prison-industrial complex.

      • 4K

        It’s crazy they have mandatory life sentences without parole for 3 grams of meth. A man in the film who was jobless & making meth to get $ will be in there till he dies! Sick.
        Big pharma has Adderall which is nearly identical but they’re protected.

  • “[…] including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, and groping their breasts, butts or generals.”

    Dang, not their *generals*, too! That’s just unacceptable!
    *Privates*, sure. But not generals.

  • I am very sorry to hear about your daughter. Please understand that because the courts dropped the ball in her case(s), there are hundreds of millions of other men somewhere blasting your daughter for being a lying wҺore slμt who begged for it and only decided to report the poor, innocent good guy(s) for vindictive reasons.
    ~~~
    As to the rest of your post, that is just so much balderdash. Please read up one what REALLY happens. You’ve been letting some seriously delusional crackpots tell you some really absurd stories there. The question is, how on Earth can you allow yourself to stick your nose up at reality and instead prefer the stories you just repeated? I guess it’s just easier to believe rape doesn’t happen. I mean, that’s what most people have always believed… luckily, by some grace of G-d perhaps, the floodgates are finally opening and light is being shone upon the reality of sexual assault.

    False allegations end up hurting the person making the accusations too, and the accuser will never get the pity and forgiveness that the innocent accused would receive eternally after the fact. The majority of allegations are real and factual, and more importantly, not even half of victims report their assaults in the first place… primarily because POSs like the ones you got your opinions from will tell them straight to their bloody, beaten faces that they are making up their claims for some magical form of vengeance against who-knows.

  • I’m not trying to attribute the “rape never happens” to anyone; what I AM certain of is that most of you are willing only to say that it only happens when it isn’t “one of yours” being accused of it. You (maybe not “you specifically”, but “you in general”) are happy to instantly believe that some ghetto thug raped some sweet innocent thing, or that dictators in other countries do it, or that non-Christians do it all the time, but when it comes out time after time after time that it’s yet another “respectable” white male pillar-of-the-community churchgoer, then the instant and very stubborn default is “SHE’S LYING! SHE’S BEING PAID! LIBRUL SHILL ALERT! GEORGE SOROS!”, etc.

    “Let’s not forget…women also rape young boys and men;”

    Oh, this useless non sequitur really irks me, and it ***ALWAYS*** shows up when yet another “respectable” man is being investigated. Pardon my language, but ummm, NO ₣ucking sҺit women/girls do it too. And sometimes cats attack pitbulls. If this was a wide open topic with no limits, then random, nameless women/girls assaulting men/boys/females(!) would not be such a useless canard here. But useless canard, it is. I hope you go to White Supremacy blogs and ‘tut-tut’ everyone that “in fact, let’s not forget that whites also commit crimes” like a useless sack of excrement. Terrible people will continue to do terrible things, like the old, “Don’t look at the [alleged] crimes of the guy I like, look at the crimes of allllll the people in the whole wide world OTHER THAN the guy I don’t want to be a criminal” like you just did.

    Crimony, I just read past that typical knee-JERK (emphasis on JERK) comment of yours to see the NEXT common lie and CANARD that no women ever get arrested in domestic violence calls… umm, YES, women DO get carted away PLENTY, the police aren’t allowed to take the man away if he wasn’t the aggressor. Yet I can’t totally blame you for doing the thing you complain about (instantly believing UNSUBSTANTIATED claims), because there are men’s woman-hating websites which love to act as though this is true; It ISN’T.

    • Skywatcher57

      You know what, Carrie, I didn’t bother to read this whole post! Sin is sin; it doesn’t respect race, nor is it bound by race; it affects everyone, but you’re now making it a racist thing. That really doesn’t say a whole lot about your reasoning ability to recognize sin for what it is…dirty, ugly, conniving, scheming, dishonest, etc. Personally, I don’t get “happy” when I hear of anyone being horribly dishonored and disrespected, and hurt by rape. Color makes no difference to me; race makes no difference to me, and wealthy or poor makes no difference to me. Rape and sexual assaults are very harmful, but as I said before, lots of these “sexual assaults” were consensual at the beginning, and then something went awry…fears or motives. I thank God that neither you or I have to judge in such affairs. And the past has proven, many are being paid to step forward after many years of allegedly harboring these hurts and injustices. I say, “Why did they wait so long to come forward?” There have been plenty of resources in place for rape victims to come forward for quite a number of years now. But no, for some mysterious reason…they feel they can be more potent if they wait for 20, 30, 40 years when that individual is at the pinnacle of his life’s successes and then they come out of the woodwork with their false accusations and lack of physical evidence. These gals didn’t hurt at all; they’re feminists who want to destroy men, regardless of their age, color of skin, or position in life. We’ve seen it time and time again. Heck! We even have a case of this in the Holy Bible, where the Pharoah’s wife tried to seduce Joseph, He wanted no part of that. When he fled, she grabbed his coat, and used that as evidence that she had been raped, when in fact, he didn’t even touch her or have any desire to do so! She still screamed, “Rape! He raped me!” This clever little ploy has been working for thousands of years. That’s all I have to say on this subject.

      • ” I say, “Why did they wait so long to come forward?””

        They DON’T wait to come forward. They (Roy Moore’s, most recently) tell their friends and family, who remember the incidents quite clearly. The reason we all hear about these “sudden” allegations now is that back then, there was no 24/7 TV news nor Internet. Women DO come forward, nothing gets widespread reportage unless the doer is famous. But you’re just too, too, too devoted to disbelieving victims unless their attackers aren’t “your tribe”. You are no friend to women, to children, or to anyone who has women or children in their lives.

        I won’t get into details, but I had a boss come in on a Saturday (when only I would be in the office) and try to “do something” to me but he was thwarted because I’d just eaten a bean burrito that was STUFFED with raw onions. After he locked the door and VERY unexpectedly stuck his tongue down my throat, he let me go, unlocked the door and raced out. Did I go to the police? The media? His family? Nope! Did I tell my friends, my female coworkers, my mother? Yep! I also told my manager, but he just laughed it off saying that a guy as good-looking and wealthy as [our boss] sure does “like the ladies”. My female co-workers shared loads of things that he’d tried/done to them; none of it was consensual… not even the completed acts. Back then, we didn’t know we could call it raρe if the raρist’s identity was known to us…

        MANY years later, when the Men-Always-Right/Women-Always-Wrong contingent started calling all of Bill Cosby’s victims liars and wҺores, followed by calling Donald’s /ᐠ。ꞈ。ᐟ-grabbed victims the same names (INSTANTLY calling them these slurs, with NO research into the claims whatsoever, just like with Roy Moore’s now-adult victims), I Googled my former boss. I found dozens more women whom he’d forced himself onto. None of them seemed to have gone to the media, many just referred to him by his first name and last initial (both of which were VERY rare). Yet YOU people will accuse us all of lying because we didn’t throw ourselves into volcanoes from the trauma and shame.

        Believe this though… just like ALL of these victims who recently braved the slings and arrows of the woman-hating culture we live in to speak out against Cosby, Donald, and now Roy, I would try to be as strong and brave if my former boss were to run for office.

        Go ahead and pretend you didn’t read all of this too.
