Sunday News Roundup: France Violates Its Own Climate Accords as Gas Prices and Gun Sales Rocket Skyward

Oh. You don’t saaaaaayyyyy… – I’ve pointed out in several pieces the fact that the United States, the only nation on earth that was not a formal participant in the Paris Climate Accords thanks to the foresight of Donald Trump, was also the only industrialized nation on earth that has not only met its unenforceable “targets” under that sham wealth redistribution scheme, but exceeded them.

The U.S. has surpassed its emissions targets all the way through 2025, in fact, mainly thanks to the fact that clean natural gas has displaced huge amounts of coal in power generation. At the same time, European nations that had forced their economies heavily into wind and solar with massive government programs have been falling far short.

One of those countries is Germany. Another, of course, France – ironically where the agreement was consummated years ago – whose leaders were also among the most petulant and snarky in their condemnation of America’s non-participation. France has fallen so far and obviously short that a court in Paris actually found the country guilty this week of this imaginary “crime.”

No, I’m not making this stuff up:

Here’s an excerpt from the CBS News piece:

Paris — Four environmental groups are crying victory after France was found guilty of failing to meet climate change goals it committed to in a historic accord signed in and named after its own capital city. The Administrative Tribunal in Paris ruled Wednesday that France had fallen short of its promise to reduce greenhouse gases under commitments made in the 2015 Paris Agreement, and was “responsible for ecological damage.”

While the court declared the government guilty of inaction, it rejected a claim for damages by the four NGOs that brought the suit, ordering the government to pay just one symbolic euro to them instead. The tribunal also said it would decide within two months whether to recommend any measures for the government to resolve its failure to meet its own commitments.

In January, the court called the proceedings the “first major climate trial in France.”

[End]

Thus, just as with the Paris Accords themselves, this climate “trial” ends in an empty gesture involving a lot of hot air, pontificating and toothless threats of future action.

Things are not good in America right now, but it could be worse: We could be France.

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – Speaking of climate-related scams, remember that your clean, pretty and very expensive electric vehicle derives most of its power from the burning of fossil fuels:

That isn’t Gina McCarthy, as @LawyerForLaws incorrectly claims, but it is fun to watch her squirm nonetheless.

Do you get the feeling that it’s costing you more to fill up your gas tank at the local station? Yes? – Well, that’s because it is. The price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas, which plummeted to decades-long lows under Donald Trump, has now risen by 37 cents per gallon since Election Day as traders drive up the price for crude oil in anticipation of the Biden/Harris socialist policy onslaught:

Thanks, Democrats! You voted for this!

The Babylon Bee just keeps getting better. – Here, America’s best satirists (eat your heart out, Saturday Night Live) perfectly capture the public pronouncements of the little menace to society, Anthony Fauci:

Here’s an excerpt from this hilarious story:

WASHINGTON, DC—In a development no one saw coming, Dr. Anthony Fauci has again changed his recommendation about what to do with masks by consulting his tested and proven “Wheel of SCIENCE.”

“Now I know it confuses people when the science changes so quickly, as if we are just making all this up as we go along,” explained Dr. Fauci from his bunker full of neckties. “That’s why I developed this handy ‘Wheel of SCIENCE’ for us to spin every morning, so people can really see that this isn’t just me saying whatever pops into my head!”

“Now– let’s give this puppy a spin!” he exclaimed as he gave the wheel a mighty turn.

“What will it be today, gang?” asked a giddy Dr. Fauci. “‘Masks Cause Bladder Cancer?’ ‘Eating Dirt Prevents Halitosis?’ hmmm…”

The dial slowed, clicking just past “Cover Your Kids With Grocery Bags” and finally came to rest on: “Attach A Live Octopus Directly To Your Face.”

“There it is, folks!  Science has proven that the best way to prevent COVID transmission is to affix a live octopus directly over your mouth, nose, and probably eyes. I’ve been keeping this little guy here for this very moment,” said Dr. Fauci, reaching into an aquarium and plastering the surprised sea creature’s tentacles directly onto his face.

[End]

Go read the rest. It gets even funnier.

If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying close enough attention. – In a bit of positive news, Americans continue to exercise their gun rights in record numbers. Barack Obama used to be the all-time record-holder for stimulating sales of guns and ammo in America, until the COVID-19 pandemic and the government’s brutish response to it, along with last summer’s endless BLM/Antifa rioting, came along, . But China Joe Biden is threatening to surpass all previous records as his barrage of onerous executive orders and radical leftism continue to sow a rising level of fear among the public.

January, in fact, was the busiest month on record for gun and  background checks in the U.S., a clear indicator that the month likely also saw record sales of guns and bullets.

From a story at JustTheNews.com:

Gun background checks in the United States shattered monthly records in January, blowing past the four million mark for the first time in U.S. history.

Americans underwent nearly 4,318,000 checks for firearm purchases last month, handily defeating December’s then-record of nearly 3,940,000 checks and recording over four million checks in one month for the first time in the 23-year history of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

The four-million-plus checks performed in January total nearly 11% of the roughly 39,700,000 checks performed in the entirety of 2020. January of last year, for comparison, saw just over 2,700,000 background checks nationwide.

Last year’s record checks came amid sustained national unrest driven by often-violent protests led by Black Lives Matter in numerous cities nationwide, as well as record-high unemployment and economic devastation stemming from COVID-19 lockdowns and closures.

[End]

The establishment elite have over the past year destroyed Americans’ right to free speech, our right of free assembly, our right to go to church and our right against unreasonable search and seizure. But they have not yet been able to destroy our right to keep and bear arms, or to go out and buy a bunch more of them at the local gun shop. When they make their inevitable effort in the next few years to send out soldiers to confiscate everyone’s guns – and believe me, that’s coming, and sooner than you expect – they’ll find that the only way to do that will be to pry them out of the cold, dead hands of millions of ordinary citizens.

Good luck with that.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: America Moves Into its Brave New Facist World

Interesting little fact this morning… – Go to your browser’s address bar and type in “www.antifa.com”. As of 5:30 a.m. today Central Time, you would be redirected to “www.whitehouse.gov”.

Weird. But hey, Antifa certainly played a big role in helping to get China Joe Potato Head Biden installed into the White House, so why not?

What Antifa endorses, Antifa destroys. – While that bit of fun symbolism was going on, the Portland, Oregon chapter of Antifa was tossing rocks through the windows of the local Democrat Party headquarters, letting the new party in power know that the terrorist’s group’s support is … ummm …. conditional:

Such a fun bunch of young people.

Speaking of the White House website – it now asks for users to identify their preferred pronouns.

No, really, I swear I do not make this stuff up:

Image may contain: text that says 'PRONOUNS 無血無 -select an item- The Administration -select an item- she/her he/him they/them Other Prefer not to share PHONE' (123) 456-7890 COUNTRY" United States'

Just fyi, my preferred pronouns have been and always will be “Tex” and “Bubba”, but I answer to a variety of cusswords as well.

China Joe just set a new glass ceiling for your school-age girls. – In a flurry of mindless stupidity and mendacity on his first day in office, China Joe Potato Head Biden dutifully performed his job as the designated sock puppet for the DC Swamp, signing a variety of egregious executive orders. As almost an afterthough amid orders to rejoin the worthless Paris Climate Accords and kill the Keystone XL pipeline, our new dementia-ridden POTUS also signed an order that will require schools receiving federal funds to allow biological males to compete in girls’ sports.

No kidding:

Oh, guess what else? All those biological males need only “identify” as female, and will no doubt be allowed to shower with your girls as well.

This is an atrocity. But hey, it’s what you Democrats voted for. Aren’t you proud?

Just in case some of you labor under the illusion that the rank and file in the U.S. armed forces just timidly accept the results of this clearly stolen election, take a look at this view from the Biden motorcade as it proceeded down a Pennsylvania Avenue devoid of ordinary Americans:

Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder is about Hunter Biden:

Just as a reminder, that crackhead son, who made millions selling U.S. government influence to China while China Joe was Vice President, was allowed to just stand right up there next to Jill Biden as the Big Guy took the oath of office yesterday. Meanwhile, this poor little girl in Arkansas – who will be forced to shower with and compete against boys when she reaches school age thanks to the Big Guy – went to bed with with no father figure in her life.

Unity, my ass.

Required Reading for Today. – Over at DailyWire, Ian Hayworth pens a terrific piece this morning that everyone should spend 5 minutes reading. Hayworth points out the fact that the American electorate rewarded Democrats for holding the nation hostage to brutal COVID edicts, nightly BLM/Antifa riots and destruction of our major cities and previously unthinkable assaults on free speech in 2020, and then asks why anyone would expect the Democrats to ever change?

It’s a great question. Here’s an excerpt from that piece:

In 2020, the Democratic Party applied three strategies with one single objective: to win. These three strategies were hugely — if not irrecoverably — damaging to American society, and were applied with a full understanding of their consequences.

In the end, the Democrats succeeded. Joe Biden will be the president, and the Democratic Party will control the entirety of Congress.

How can we ever expect them to change their tactics when they are clearly so effective?

COVID-19 Lockdowns

When COVID-19 appeared on the international scene in 2020, the Democrat’s quickly recognized it as a political opportunity. “Never waste a crisis,” as the saying goes. Criticism of China’s regime was dismissed as xenophobic, Trump and other Republicans were blamed for every case or death, and Democrat-run cities and states forced businesses to close under draconian lockdowns. Almost overnight, the American economy was intentionally placed on life support and much needed relief was intentionally delayed in Congress, all while Democrat politicians flaunted their own “rules.”

[End]

Go read the rest. You’ll be glad you did.

A blue-check dimwit media figure asks the burning question. – Grance Franke-Ruta, a leftist journalist who no doubt voted twice to make communist Democrat Bill de Blasio the Mayor of her city, had a bad experience with her husband trying to get a COVID vaccine shot on Tuesday. So naturally, she did what all leftist dimwits do, and took to Twitter to whine about it.

Here is part of a long thread she posted:

“Why is everything in NYC so badly run?” she asks, obviously without ever taking even a second to step back and examine whether or not her voting decisions might – just might – have something to do with the fact that everything in NYC has gone so horribly wrong in recent years. Meanwhile, the answer to her question is blindingly obvious:

Image

Political leftists are simply incapable of learning. They utterly lack the ability to engage in the introspection necessary to understand that they are in fact the problem, for the simple fact that they have been taught to believe that they are better and smarter than the rest of us.

And so, after four years of Bill de Blasio and all of his epic failings, they go out to the voting booth and re-elect the Big Doofus to screw up their city for four more years, and then act surprised when that happens. Or they watch communist Democrat Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler presides over 100 straight nights of violent riots and go out and vote to re-elect him for four more years. Or they go out and mindlessly vote for an addled lifetime politician who has been in federal office for 47 years and never solved a single problem, and then are shocked to learn that he’s going to make their daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters take showers with boys who are sporting penises.

Yes, it’s bizarre behavior, but that’s who these people really are. Sadly for the rest of  us, it’s the sort of mindless, bizarre behavior that takes free countries and turns them into fascist prison states that look exactly like Washington, DC looked on inauguration day.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Trump Disrupts the Swamp With Veto Threat, Pardons

[After a week in the dumpster with technical issues, DBDailyUpdate is back up and running this morning thanks to the sterling efforts of an excellent firm that provides an array of fully-managed hosting services. I have retained their services going forward, so the days of me struggling to try to get these problems figured out myself are over. 

I had previously considered just taking the rest of this terrible year off, but let’s face it: There’s just too much going on for that to really happen. So, enough small talk: Let’s go to the Wednesday News Roundup.]

Dear Congress: Donald Trump is still your President. Deal with it. – At least, he’s still the President until January 20th, a fact that is causing a great deal of consternation among the Democans and Republicrats in congress this morning, after the President released a 4-minute video clip promising to veto the atrocity of a $900 billion COVID spending bill they sent over to his desk on Tuesday.

That clip and a full transcript of the President’s remarks are contained in a separate post this morning. Suffice it to say, congressional Democans and Republicrats are not real happy this morning as they awake to the reality that their own planned two-week vacations are being interrupted by a POTUS who won’t just sign off on their latest effort to loot the American taxpayer.

President Trump is also threatening to veto the separate, $1.4 trillion defense/spending bill congress also passed on Monday evening. Lindsey Graham tweeted last night that the President would reconsider both vetoes if the bills were amended to include a larger payment to U.S. citizens and to include repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, language that enables the big tech social media monopolies to engage in rank discrimination:

The problem the Democans and Republicrats in congress have here is that, at this point, the President has nothing to lose by vetoing these bills, given the current “official” status of the election outcome, in which China Joe Potato Head Biden has been declared the “winner” by Dominion Systems and corrupt election officials in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada.

President Trump doesn’t have to worry about ever standing for re-election again, and hey, what’s one more bad media day for this man? Yes, unemployment benefits are scheduled to expire on Saturday unless a bill is signed into law to extend them, but the President has placed that ball squarely back in Congress’s court.

So, senators and representatives who rushed out of DC on Monday evening and during the day on Tuesday are probably going to have to rush back out to the Swamp to do a little damage control, and that will not make them happy, not at all.

Cool.

Pardon me? – No, but the President did issue pardons for 15 Americans on Tuesday, including George Papadopoulous, who was one of the main subjects of the illegal spying operation mounted by Obama’s FBI and Intelligence Community against the 2016 Trump Campaign. This is great news, as Papadopoulous did nothing wrong, but was bullied by the Mueller Gestapo into pleading guilty to a meaningless perjury charge back in 2018 in order to avoid his family members being targeted, just as they did to General Mike Flynn.

Other Trump pardons included former GOP congressmen Duncan Hunter and Steve Stockman, demonstrating that even Trump himself is not immune to the political demands of the Swamp. Those pardons were definitely undeserved.

The President also pardoned two former Border Patrol officers who were subjected to an entirely political prosecution over the killing of an illegal alien during the George W. Bush administration. Their sentences were previously commuted by Bush, but these full pardons finally give them some real justice, although nothing can ever undo the harm caused to their lives by the corrupt Department of Justice.

The rest of the pardons are detailed in this Business Insider piece:

Among the former lawmakers Trump pardoned was Duncan Hunter, who pleaded guilty last year to one count of misusing campaign funds. He was sentenced to 11 months in prison but has not yet begun serving out his sentence.

Also on the list was former GOP congressman Steve Stockman, who was convicted in 2018 on 23 felony counts of fraud, money laundering, conspiracy, and false statements. Stockman was sentenced to ten years in prison and ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution. Trump commuted the remainder of Stockman’s sentence on Tuesday, citing his age, his pre-existing health conditions, and the fact that he contracted COVID-19 while in prison.

Trump also granted a pardon to former Rep. Chris Collins, who pleaded guilty last year to making false statements to the FBI and conspiracy to commit securities fraud. He is currently serving out a 26-month sentence.

The four Blackwater guards Trump pardoned on Tuesday were found guilty in connection to a deadly shooting in Baghdad that killed 17 Iraqi civilians. One of the former contractors, Nicholas Slatten, was convicted of first-degree murder and is serving out a lifetime prison sentence. The other three defendants were convicted of multiple counts of voluntary manslaughter, attempted manslaughter, and firearms offenses.

The two former Border Patrol agents the president pardoned, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, were convicted in 2006 for shooting and injuring an unarmed undocumented immigrant. Their sentences were later commuted by President George W. Bush, and Trump granted them full pardons on Tuesday.

[End]

The real shame in all of this is that Papadopoulous had to wait so long to have his name fully cleared. But that’s how the DC Swamp works.

Fantastic! How can I help? – The corrupt news media will be all verklempt about it, but this is wonderful news for America: Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz are trying to convince President Trump to submit both the Obama Iran Nuclear deal and the Paris Climate Accords to the Senate for ratification:

Graham and Cruz know without any doubt at all that neither deal – which Obama executed as “executive agreements” during his 8-year reign of terror against the American Republic – could possibly garner the 2/3rds approval of the senate needed for ratification, thus killing them completely dead before China Joe Potato Head can assume office and re-implement them as executive agreements.

It’s a fantastic plan, and we should all hope that President Trump takes advantage of it.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at the UK Independent:

Republican senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham have reportedly urged Donald Trump to submit both the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris Climate Agreement to the Senate, in a last-minute attempt to stop the US rejoining the accords once the president leaves office.

In a letter obtained by RealClearPolitics, Mr Cruz, from Texas, urged Mr Trump and US secretary of state Mike Pompeo to submit the accords to the Senate before President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated on 20 January.

Mr Cruz said that submitting the international agreements would trigger votes to ratify them, which are unlikely to pass with a tight Senate, as they would need the support of two-thirds of senators, according to iran-nuclear-deal-republicans-aim-to-block-biden-rejoining”>The Guardian.

The senator claims that if the accords fail to be ratified, it would effectively block Mr Biden from rejoining them, as he would have to contradict a recent decision from the Senate.

A senior congressional aide told RealClearPolitics that submitting the accords to fail in the Senate “would be the final nail in the coffin.”

In his letter to the president, Mr Cruz wrote: “I urge you now to remedy the harm done to the balance of powers by submitting the Iran deal and the Paris agreement to the Senate as treaties.”

He added: “Only by so doing will the Senate be able to satisfy its constitutional role to provide advice and consent in the event any future administration attempts to revive these dangerous deals.”

[End]

Understand that all Cruz and Graham are advising President Trump to do is to subject these two treasury-looting deals to the normal course of order that Obama should have been required to follow. Constitutionally, this is the process required to commit the United States of America to such international agreements, a process that has been bastardized and corrupted by decades of horrible Supreme Court decisions enabling Obama’s betrayals.

Do it, Mr. President. After all, what have you got to lose?

That is all.

Bob Mueller: Nude Selfie Inspector Extraordinaire

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Mueller “Investigation” reaches rock bottom. – Yesterday, it came to light that the upright, stalwart man with the “unimpeachable” reputation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, has now resorted to the collection of “nude selfies” in his Captain Ahab-like quest to indict as many Russian ham sandwiches as he possibly can.

Of course, in the case of Concorde Management, it turns out that our abusive counsel wants to indict the ham sandwich, but he doesn’t want to actually prosecute the ham sandwich.  Mainly because he and his evil band of Clinton/Obama hacks know they are holding a big bag of nothing in their case against this consulting firm.

In their feverish efforts to avoid an embarrassing day in court, Mueller and his minions have been trying to convince the judge in the case that the normal rules of production and disclosure do not apply.  Their claim is that they should be able to conduct their prosecution of the case without sharing evidence with the defense due to … wait for it…NATIONAL SECURITY REASONS.  Mueller argues that revealing his evidence could also reveal his “sources and means,” the standard excuse used by the FBI and DOJ in redacting documents in order to avoid embarrassing themselves.  Oh yeah, you betcha.  You just cannot make this stuff up.

Remember, Concorde is the company that is accused of basically setting up a handful of fake social media accounts and spending about $100,000 in messaging during the 2016 election. Can it really get any more absurd than this?

As it turns out, yes, it can. In a filing to the court made public on Thursday, Concorde’s lawyers argue against Mueller’s absurd demand, in the process including the following statement:

“Could the manner in which he collected a nude selfie really threaten the national security of the United States?”

Yes, friends and foes, your Special Counsel is deploying the old “sources and means” argument to avoid revealing how he and his band of thugs came to be in possession of a nude selfie.  I’m really not sure what else needs to be said about that.  Other than, holy crap.

Paris Burning Update: Speaking of things you just could not make up if you wanted to, the news out of Gay Pareee this morning is that the Macron government is now being sued by radical fake green groups GreenPeace and Oxfam for…wait for it…oh, you gotta wait for this one…AGREEING TO RESCIND MACRON’S CARBON TAX!  I swear I do not make this stuff up:

“Four NGOs—Oxfam, Greenpeace, Notre Affaire à Tous, and Fondation pour la Nature et l’Homme—have initiated legal proceedings saying France has defaulted on its environmental obligations. The initial Dec.18 filing gives the government two months to formulate a response, after which the organizations can choose to move forward with their lawsuit (link in French) in administrative court.”

This is climate-scamism at its finest:  Bind your country to some international “accord” (not a treaty) that would do literally nothing at all about the “climate”, but would redistribute trillions of dollars from Western nations to the rest of the world, and you suddenly find that, no matter what action you try to take related to it, you’re angering large segments of your society. Try to implement the socialist policies that the globalist community demands, and half your population riots in the streets.  Try to rescind those policies, and the fake green groups (which are really just socialist fronts) have millions of dollars or francs they will use to sue your butt off.

There is no graceful exit available for Macron in this situation. He must take a side, and you can be sure that he will ultimately side with the fake greens and globalists, because that is who he is.  And honestly, this is the fate he richly deserves.

The Left’s War on Women Just Keeps Building

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

A fitting farewell to 41. – It is no secret by now that those who have held the office of the presidency are allowed to plan their own funerals, to include the use of national facilities such as the Capital Rotunda and the glorious National Cathedral. It is a real testament to the personal character of George Herbert Walker Bush that his funeral – in stark contrast to that of a late senator who recently was allowed to disrupt the nation’s business for nine full days – was dignified, serious, understated, filled with self-effacing humor and humility, and completely lacking in any hint of lingering bitterness.

It should also surprise no one that every one of the four eulogists for yesterday’s event – biographer Jon Meacham, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, former U.S. Senator from Wyoming Alan Simpson, and of course, Bush 41’s son, George W. Bush – were all pitch perfect in their remarks, capturing the essence of the man and building on one another until the final climax. It was an historic day – the first time a presidential son was able to eulogize his presidential father – a somber day, and in the end, a joyful day that celebrated not just the career of the man, but also his essential character.

And that, after all, is what Bush 41 will most be remembered for by most Americans: His character, which was marked by overwhelming love and unending forgiveness. His love for his wife Barbara; his family and friends; his cities of Kennebunkport, Maine and Houston, Texas; and for the country he served throughout his adult life.

There is so much to be learned, so many lessons about the wrong way and the right way to do things from these two recent state funerals, and we can only hope that most Americans learned the most from this week’s events.

Paris Burning Watch:

If you thought the Macron government’s decision to “suspend” the implementation of its confiscatory carbon tax for six months would calm the public and end the protests in Paris, well, think again.

Again, it’s important to remember that the motivation behind Macron’s carbon tax is his fool’s effort to meet the emissions targets to which the French government agreed in the Paris Climate Accords. The other key aspect to remember about that agreement is that developing nations were promised $100 billion per year to help them pay to get their own emissions in line.

And here’s the rub:  Most of that money was going to come from the taxpayers of the United States of America. That’s what America’s Worst Mistake – Barack Hussein Obama – committed us all to doing.  Which is why President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) pulled our country out of that massive wealth redistribution scam last summer.

So, without America and its deep pockets footing the bills for that redistribution, guess who gets to take up the tab? France and the other “developed” nations of Europe, of course, along with maybe a little help from Canada, Australia, China and Japan.

Most French citizens probably haven’t even figured that part out yet. If you think the past two weeks have been troublesome on the streets of Paris, just wait until they all figure out that these massive new taxes aren’t just to try to pay for France’s participation in that deal, but also to help pay for the participation of the same third world countries who have been flooding France and most of Europe with “refugees” over the last decade.

Just food for thought.

From our You Seriously Just Cannot Make This Stuff Up Department:

This is real, I swear it…

You Seriously Cannot Make This Stuff Up, Part II:

Hey, Bloomberg caught onto this reality just yesterday:

So think about this: The #MeToo movement has ensured that in today’s corporate environment, any man who is accused of anything that could be remotely defined to be “harassment” will be automatically presumed guilty and most likely summarily fired by the company, unless he is a very well-known liberal senior executive, in which case it takes a little while longer for him to be fired, plus he gets a huge severance package like Les Moonves.

What, someone really believed that that environment would not create some sort of backlash? Hell, the stuff talked about in that article isn’t even really a backlash – it’s simple self-defense.

And the truth is, this is nothing new – the focus on sexual harassment in the workplace and the need to find ways to avoid it came about in the 1970s. I worked in the corporate world for 40 years, starting in 1979. More than 20 years ago, I made the personal decision to never take a one-on-one meeting with a female peer or subordinate in an office with the door closed. It wasn’t that I didn’t trust and respect the women I worked with – it was just that you couldn’t take the risk of being accused of anything like that. Because once an accusation is made, whether it is true or not, your reputation at that company is forever damaged.

Having said all of that, sexual harassment in the workplace is a despicable act that needs to be punished. It is honestly mind-boggling to me that we are here in the year 2018, after 40 years of focus on this issue, and there are still men who think this kind of boorish behavior is somehow acceptable. It isn’t, you clowns.

But the way to punish it is not to suspend rules of evidence and the presumption of innocence for the accused, as the leftists in the #MeToo movement insist. What the Bloomberg article truly demonstrates is that this rush to persecute, regardless of how many innocent people become ensnared, actually does more harm to career women than it helps.

It’s just one more aspect of the political left’s war on women, and that war is very real. The rights of genetic females are being diminished in our society every day.

You have the Democrat Party and its judges fully in support of the effort by our news media and pop culture to normalize Sharia Law and the genital mutilation practices of some Muslim sects; you have Democrats passing laws that allow people with male genitalia to use the same public restrooms as your wives and daughters; you have people with male genitalia and musculature being allowed to take athletic trophies away from little girls and share locker rooms with them at many schools. You have a supporter of Sharia Law serving for two years now as co-chair of something called the Women’s March, and a woman-abusing buddy of Louis Farrakhan recently getting elected as the Democrat Attorney General of Minnesota.

It’s a real war, ladies, and you’re the target. And head’s up: It isn’t conservatives who are fighting it.

That is all.
