Resign, Frankenstien

The Democratic wall begins to crack. Two DFL officials call for (((Al Franken)))'s resignation for sexually harassing Leeann Tweeden:
Two prominent members of Minnesota's Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party are calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign his Senate seat following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Although many other Democrats have called the former comedian's actions disturbing, state auditor Rebecca Otto and Megan Thomas, president of the party's official Feminist Caucus, say he should leave office.

The allegations were made Thursday morning by radio host Leeann Tweeden, who said Franken harassed her during a 2006 USO trip to the Middle East, before he was elected to the Senate in 2008.

Tweeden said Franken wrote a play to be performed in front of troops featuring a kiss, and then forced his tongue into her mouth after insisting on practice. A photo also shows a grinning Franken's hands over Tweeden's breasts while she was asleep.

Otto, a candidate for governor in Minnesota, said in a statement that "I believe it's in the best interest of Minnesotans and of women everywhere for Senator Franken to resign, and to set an example to powerful men across America that sexual harassment will not be tolerated."

Thomas, meanwhile, told the Washington Examiner that Franken's misconduct was "every woman's nightmare on a bus." In a Facebook post, the longtime party organizer wrote that while she appreciated his progressive vote record, the fear Franken will instill in women is enough reason for his departure.

"The 'political' answer is to wait and not overreact. But I also know that the next time I see him in person I will, however fleeting or unneeded, be afraid because of what he is doing in that picture. No one should fear their elected representatives, so, sadly, for me, I think the Senator should resign," she wrote.

After the initial allegations, Franken called for an ethics investigation into himself, and many Democratic colleagues called the allegations disturbing, but stopped short of demanding his resignation.

Otto's statement was the first from a major officeholder to demand his resignation. Many state Democratic officials are standing by Franken for now, while expressing concern about the allegations.
Fish Lips Franken has to go. I don't see any way he can reasonably survive that photograph and the credible details of the accusation by Tweeden. And, of course, there are already other credible accusers coming forward, so there will probably be more material evidence forthcoming. The difference between the Franken case and the Moore case is that Franken's accusers have evidence and are credible, while Moore's accusers have nothing but "evidence" that was clearly faked and are not credible.

Moreover, the accusations of Franken are consistent with his known public behavior, whereas the accusations of Moore are not.

That being said, the craven response of the Democrats, especially the female Democrats who talk such a big game about feminism and sexual harassment, is going to hurt them. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, in particularly, looks pathetic and cowardly.

The God-Emperor, on the other hand, has got this one down cold.

“The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?”

Trump is the fire spotter of Alt-Left forest fires who points out where to drop the water. The Alt-Left fire suppression plane then waterbombs the target with napalm and is shocked -- shocked! -- at the results.

It doesn't matter. We're well beyond ethics in high officials.

Franken did what he needed to _eight_ years ago: steal the Senate election from Norm Coleman and pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act with 60-vote majority.

He could have resigned Jan. 1 2010 and his damage would have been complete.

He's not going to resign, there will be an ethics investigation in which he'll be censured - vigorously censured, oh noes! - and he will serve out his term.

He may not seek reelection. Or he might. He might survive this term or he might not. But one of the worst pieces of legislation in the history of bad legislation was done by his hand, and we've seen just how difficult it's been to remove.

If Franken stays then we have bludgeon on the Democrats anytime they try to railroad one of the good guys. This also applies to Bitch McConnell and his double standard in favor of the supposed opposition party.

If there is an investigation it could take till long after Moore is seated in the Senate. At that point Senator Moore can take a look at the obviously stolen election by Franken, and how the Soviets, I mean Democrats cheated to force Obamacare on us.

Trump is using Alfred Hitchcock's technique of letting the audience's minds fill in the horror that is off-screen. Much more terrifying than what the director could put on screen.

Clearly that election was stolen.

We can't settle for that. Remember that blugeon we were supposed to have with Bill Clinton? Remember it never really stopped them or even hurt them all that much. Democrats were simultaneously defending him while making all kinds of accusations against the right. They are throwing him overboard, this week to try and get at Moore.

If Franken chooses to stay they will do the same with him. The picture is campaign gold and will be more effective than anything on Clinton but it won't stop the Democrats from defending him while making accusations against others.

This is where the SJWs tactics must be used against them. The calls from our side for his resignation need to loud, persistent and unyielding. If Franken lasts more than 3 weeks without resigning he is never going to and the MSM and the Democrats will bury the story and look confused when people bring it up in the future.

Clearly Rebecca Otto and Megan Thomas have their finger on the pulse of how the women of American are feeling at this emotional time. Their tireless efforts to demand that the US Senate be safe place for women should not go unheard. Grabby Al Franken is the embodiment of the evil oppressive Patriarchy that Feminist across the world have been fighting for decades. Equality for women will never be achieved unless persons on both sides of the aisle decry these heinous acts of violence against women. That this kind of behaviour can still occur in 2017 is shameful, and it shows how much more work we have ahead of us moving forward. Al Franken must resign.

I had questioned what the end-game was for all the sexual assault me-tooing. I realize that it is the same as it has been for decades. Used to smear enemies, ignored when revealed about their (((fellow travelers))). Just take it off the back burner when necessary and return it to the back after successful use. Accepted as absolute truth when about (((their))) enemies, requiring thorough investigations and understanding of human frailties or "jokes" when (((friends))). Women are all saints and are brave for coming out 40 years later about their "assault" by a conservative, everyone knows that women can be hysterical liars when they make an allegation about the (((good people))).

One of the biggest and most obvious sites for paid trolling to support the narrative is Scott Adams' blog. I went there the other day to see the left's take on Franken (I have avoided the site for weeks because it is "Did not!" "Did too!", "You're a liar!" "No, you're a liar!", ad nauseum). What I found was the same repetitive responses from the left. Franken's actions were insignificant, especially in light of Roy Moore's "confirmed" blatant, and horrible sexual predation or Trump's "pussy grabber" admission of "sexual harassment". Once the ((media))) has introduced disinformation into the record, it is gospel and can be quoted for centuries if necessary. Truth is a non-factor. Only propaganda is real.

And who should be surprised. President Trump is an admitted sexual abuser and adulterer.

Trump must resign.


Trump is a good man. Senator Fish-Lips Franken, on the other hand, must spend time in jail after he is booted from the Senate forcibly.

If turning this against Trump was the plan, it's not working. There's no way they planned for this much backfire.

One of the big reasons it's a bad idea to structure an organization as a secret inner party who knows the truth, that lies to everyone else including the rest of their organization, is that the organization will eventually be entirely staffed by people who believe the lies. There's too many liberals now who truly believe that sexual misconduct is a reason to eject someone from their position now, who did not get the memo that this is only supposed to be deployed against the other team.

Also, don't just look at the people, look at the reputation damage. This is why I don't necessarily but the "planned burn" theory, because the reputation damage has still been enormous and ongoing. (I totally believe they are trying to manage the burn, just not that where we are now was "the plan all along".) I don't think there was a clever plan to set up a moral panic about sexual immorality, but to catch this much of the media, Hollywood, and Democratic politicians. Honestly, Trump just isn't that bad enough for the PTB to burn that much of their power on getting rid of him.

Part of the reason I don't believe this is that I've seen the precisely targeted moral panics that just affect Republicans in my lifetime. It is plausible to me that "they" thought they could pull it off again, not realizing that they've built too much stupidity into their ideological zombie hordes for the hordes to realize who the correct target is.

All,

I'm a daily reader and sometimes commenter at VP. Glad to see Franken under the microscope and I agree that he's probably finished, but I'm honestly surprised by the blanket assumption of Moore's innocence here. For the record, I believe that the yearbook signature is probably faked, which would knock a leg out from under Nelson's story and make her story much less believable.

But what prevents me from getting fully on board with the "Moore is innocent" crowd is the fact that both Nelson and Corfman shared their experience with family and friends at, or near, the time of the alleged assault. And those with whom they shared these stories have confirmed it. That, to me, is pretty damning since it effectively obviates the suspicious 40-year silence. It would mean that these women DID implicate Moore during this period, but simply chose not to make it public for understandable reasons.

Yes, it's possible that the WaPo and others have struck deals with these women and their families to get them to lie. However, considering the fact that there is undisputed proof of Moore attempting to date 15-16 year old girls which is, at best, questionable for many people, it's not much of a stretch to think that he may have attempted to take advantage of a girl who had no power to stop him. After all, this kind of power differential between adults and young people is one of the primary reasons modern society doesn't typically condone relationships like this.

The White Witch is defeated, and Aslan is on the move.

In the Gospels, there is a group of stories called "controversies" where the Pharisees try to trap Jesus, but he reverses things and they are caught in their own trap. Like the Woman caught in adultery. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone". Basically they asked Jesus do you rebel against Moses order to stone her, or against Caesar that banned it? Jesus reversed it - he always said the Pharisees were sinful, so if THEY don't stone her, they admit Jesus is right about their sinfulness. If they DO stone her, the Roman Legions would treat it as an insurrection (while Jesus can claim to be innocent of any incitement). That is why the oldest - wisest - went away first.

I'm not sure of everything going on in the spiritual battlefield, but the charged are presented before judgment, and I think there will be much, much, more revealed, especially this kind of hypocrisy, in the coming weeks and months.

There have been accusations about sexual misconduct, but no one talked about Bill Clinton on the left until recently, or Weinstein's "I'll give $5M to work against the NRA" would work.

The SJWs, and their convergence, and virtue signalling have done us this favor. The Democrats are trying to play Trotsky when Stalin is rising. It might be Crazy Bernie, but realize he has followers who are at least consistent that white males shouldn't be allowed a pass at sexual misconduct. A parallel might be Theranos or Yahoo that were destroyed by an incompetent Woman CEO. Since with SJWs it is never enough, there will be escalation.

That one creepy picture has reframed the Moore situation. Has Moore's opponent called for Franken to resign?
The Democrats have lost their pass on sexual misconduct.
As has Hollywood, the Media, etc.
Go long popcorn.

Blogger tz November 17, 2017 11:17 AM  

@80 - there were 30 interviews. Let the WaPo release the RAW audio so the questions and answers be heard with full context. Not just the highly edited prosecutor's brief. What DID they actually say?
Allred is heming and hawing on the Yearbook - setting ridiculous conditions for a real forensic exam.
Look up "recovered memories" - where therapists caused women to remember rapes and other abuse during their childhood and teen years that never happened.
Also interesting that it was 40 years ago - Moore was a cad but suddenly was cured? Nothing over the last 30 years.

Finally, the alternative, Democrat Devil Doug Jones wants the murder of babies in the womb to continue as well as the Gomorrahization of the USA. Moore wants to stop both. Churchians and Cucks somehow can't bring themselves to see Jones as a pervert and murderer.
Somehow something which MIGHT have happened 4 decades ago is more important than the slaughter of innocent babies and making it a right for a man to use a woman's locker room today?

So, did he fuck them? Did he squeeze their titties? Did he cum on their face? Did their families object to them dating an older man? If not, no harm, no foul. Questionable is not actionable.

Blogger Revelation Means Hope November 17, 2017 11:57 AM  

Are the associated media who took the picture now denying loudly that there were pictures 2, 3, 4 etc?

Because that is what I'd expect. Their denial just reinforces the meme in people's minds that the action was serious, and that it may have been so serious that the cameraman deleted them. Or kept them for his private collection. The more they double down on the one picture, the more it resonates in the heads of people. And then they wonder how many times he did this where there wasn't a camera man around.

This is why you don't apologize or defend false accusations like a cuck boy. Give them nothing. Don't ever accept their frame, immediately reframe it back onto something else.

From the "I don't think this was the plan"department, I see now that the Frankenstein accuser says that it should be left up to the people of Minnesota to decide.

If the left is forced to fall back to that standard by their own malfeasance, then this whole thing will be of zero utility in attacking Trump.

And I'd say, why let them fall back to that standard? This hurts them a great deal more than the MAGA crew. I can name some Republicans we can afford to cut loose...

These comments from Thomas are why women are going to be driven out of politics and public life. If we're very very lucky, we'll retain the right to hold a job without our husband's permission and own property.

Franken forced his tongue down a woman's throat and posed for a photograph while committing sexual assault WHILE ON A USO TOUR. And her feeble reasoning as to why this warrants his resignation is that the next time she's around him, she will feel uncomfortable. I get the impression this would be her closing argument at Ted Bundy's trial: "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this man gives me bad, bad feels. I would be extremely uncomfortable if he were released and I ran into him at the grocery store. Even though he probably wouldn't murder me right then and there, I'd have a fleeting moment of fear, which I believe the entire world should revolve around. Please vote to ease my fear. Thank you."

I'd love to see an fMRI of this woman's brain just to see if she's even capable of activating logical thought processes anymore.

tz,

In 81 the Pharisee overlay on the Law ensured that all men were guilty of something, so none is without sin. But wait, there's more.

The reply was allegorical rhetoric also. Rethink the reply as "Let 'He Who Is Without Sin' cast the first stone."

Kill shot, literally.

Only the Messiah is without sin. Pharisee picks up a stone after that phrase and title are invoked, it's blasphemy. Stoning to an "accidental" death, no recourse.

"the fact that"? It's a fact because her (no doubt liberal) friends "confirmed" it 40 years later? If liberal reporter "Beth" was offering money for women to come forward to accuse, WHY would you think these "my friends can validate what I said 40 years ago!" are not JUST as much paid liars? Do YOU remember what a friend said to you 40 years ago? And where were these "so upset" women ten years ago over the Ten Commandments thing? NEVER said or reported anything in 40 years? Nope, sorry' they're as much liars and the "accusers"!

@98 nailed it, of course.
Eliminating people like Franken is important, but unless they can be replaced by the people voting for a MAGA candidate then the job is only halfway done (if that). The replacement will be cowed and unwilling to do much more than follow the carefully scripted appearances the Democrat leadership provides and not the party line on command. This is doubly true if they have something like Franken's photos to hang over the replacement's head.....

I love the misspelling on purpose of Frankenstien, its 7-d level chess.

It's endearing and humanizes Trump (oh look, he misspells, just like us) so he doesn't come off like some Twitter bot. But it totally and clearly makes visual and obvious ties to Harvey WeinSTEIN on the micro level, and to all jews on the macro level. He has cover for calling him "Frankenstien" like the monster for the obvious parallels in the photo with his arms stretched out. Trump guided the memes on this one. He knew after tweeting this, people would photoshop al franken to look like the green monster from the horror films with plugs in his neck, so he has cover. This way WHEN the international frugalists cry and bleed out their 888 on to blog posts (wapo, wsj, ny times, et al.), he uses the international frugalists themselves to point out how there is a strong link between jews and sex crimes as they blame Trump for anti-semitism vapors. The average person reads Trump's tweet and says :

:mel: "'Al Frankenstien', haha, I get it, It's a funny joke about a green scary monster.....but whats this the ny times say about jews constantly being targeted for sex crime allegations....hmmm......where theres smoke......"

So then to the normal americans, they are learning about the obvious link between jews and the inclination to be the driving force behind sex crimes. Jews are the real rape culture.

Trump reduces the JQ down to a level that average Americans can understand. God Emperor! All hail Trump!
