Sad Clown Departs?

 

 

 

Al Franken, Minnesota’s unfunny prank on the nation, may well depart from the Senate today.  Franken first slinked into the Senate courtesy of a stolen election in 2008.  His tenure in the Senate has been marked by a fervent devotion to the Democrat left, interspersed with occasional clueless buffoonish asides.  To be fair, and it is hard for me with the loathsome Franken, in office he has not been much more buffoonish than the usual Senator.  I would like to say that 22 of his fellow Democrat Senators, realizing that the presence of Franken in the Senate adds a bit to the bad clown act that the contemporary Senate so often evokes, have called for his resignation in some small form of reparation, but alas that is not the case.  The reason is because Franken likes to grope the hind ends of women, and prior to being in the Senate often acted like a buffoonish, groping clown around women.

As to his churlish behavior with women prior to being elected to the Senate, that was no secret for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.  As to his behavior after the election, the women involved were so damaged by his handiwork that they said not a peep, until we entered our current Salem Witch Hunt hysteria in which alleged male gropers are to be swiftly cast out into the outer darkness to wail and gnash their teeth.  Thus Franken is persona non grata now to the same people who had hitherto lauded him as an ornament to the Senate, and who have usually spent their political careers supporting and defending Bill Clinton, who did far worse than grasp the occasional part of a woman’s posterior, and his Enabler-in-Chief Hillary.  Thus this has absolutely zero to do with morality, and everything to do with politics.

If I were Franken I would announce that I was going to resign, but not before August of 2018.  I would also then announce my candidacy for the Senate in the special election that would be held in November of next year, and that the people of Minnesota could then judge if they would want me in the Senate.  I would then advise that I was currently writing a list, and checking it twice, detailing the misdeeds of every member of the Senate and the House with the opposite sex that I was personally  aware of, and would be releasing it as a Christmas present for the nation.  I guarantee that when he released the list Franken would draw a far larger audience than he ever did at SNL.

 

Update:

 

In a sad speech Franken says he will resign in a few weeks:

Bad enough being sent to prison for a crime you committed.  Imagine being sent to prison for twenty-one years for a crime that you did not commit:

The only physical evidence against the Kellers was the testimony of Dr Michael Mouw, who examined the girl in the emergency room of a local hospital after the therapy session and said he found tears in her hymen that potentially indicated that she was molested.

Mouw signed an affidavit last January in which he affirms that he now realises his inexperience led him to a conclusion that “is not scientifically or medically valid, and that I was mistaken.”

In an appeal filed on behalf of Fran Keller earlier this year, her lawyer, Keith Hampton, also argued that the state presented misleading evidence about the cemetery, relied on a false witness confession and the testimony of a “quack” satanic abuse “expert”, and that suggestive interview techniques had encouraged the children to make “fantastical false statements”.

According to police reports and trial records, the children said that Dan Keller killed his dog and made children cut it up and eat it, “baptised” kids with blood and disembowelled pets, forcing children to drink the blood.

The Kellers were also said to have decapitated and chopped up a baby, put the remains in a swimming pool and made the children jump in. In one account, the Kellers were said to have stolen a baby gorilla from a park and Frances cut off one of its fingers.

The pair, who apparently liked to wear robes, were said to have dug graves in a cemetery to hide dead animals and a passer-by who was shot and carved up with a chain saw.

The children were supposedly taken to military bases and on secret aeroplane trips, including to Mexico, where they were abused and returned to the centre in time for their parents to pick them up as normal. They said they were coerced into videotaped sex acts and drugged so they would forget what they had seen.

In court, the jury heard about the extensive attempts by Austin police to substantiate the stories – and Hampton believes that lent them credibility. Police conducted inquiries at nearby airfields, took the children to a cemetery and examined graves from a helicopter using an infrared camera that they said could detect “hot-spots” on decomposing corpses.

In a letter of support for the Kellers dated March 17 this year, James Wood, a psychology professor at the University of Texas at El Paso, wrote: “There is now general agreement among reputable scholars that the Daycare Abuse Panic was a twentieth-century manifestation of ‘witchcraft fever’ of the same kind that swept Salem, Massachusetts in 1692 and Western Europe in the centuries before that.” Continue Reading

Witch Hunt in Philadelphia

Witch Hunt
As the UVA rape story hyped by Rolling Stone falls apart, Ralph Cipriano at Big Trial notes that the author of the Rolling Stone story was involved in another story that may have sent three innocent priests and a teacher to prison:

 

In the Billy Doe case, what Erdely didn’t know [or bother to find out] was that Billy had already told his story to the archdiocese, police, and a grand jury, and would subsequently retell it to two different juries in two criminal cases. And every time he told his story, the details kept changing.

 

 

In the case of the alleged University of Virginia gang rape, The Washington Post discovered that although the victim claimed she had endured three hours of rape, which supposedly left her blood-splattered and emotionally devastated, no event was held at the frat house the day of the alleged rape.

 

Jackie’s defenders also reported that “key details of the attack” had changed over time and that they were not able to verify those details. For example, one alleged attacker belonged to a different fraternity. The fraternity also reviewed a roster of employees at the university’s swimming pool where the alleged ringleader of the attacked supposedly worked and discovered that roster did not include the frat member cited by Jackie, or anybody else who matched the physical description that Jackie gave.

 

 

But when it comes to details that keep changing or don’t add up, Billy’s got Jackie beat by a long shot.

 

 

In the Billy Doe’s case, Billy initially claimed that he was:

 

 

— Anally raped for five hours by one priest in the sacristy and afterwards the padre threatened to kill him.

 

 

— Punched in the head and knocked unconscious by another priest, after which Billy came to and found himself naked and tied up with altar sashes; after which he was anally raped so brutally he supposedly bled for a week.

 

 

— Punched in the face by a school teacher and strangled with a seat belt before he was raped in the back seat of a car.

 

 

Then, Billy dropped all those details about the anal rapes, being punched in the head and knocked unconscious, being tied up with altar sashes, getting punched in the face and strangled with a seat belt, and being threatened with death. And then he invented a whole new story about being forced to perform strip teases, oral sex and mutual masturbation with the same trio of assailants.
