Herman Cain announced Saturday that he is suspending his campaign for president, telling a crowd of supporters in his home state that the allegations of sexual harassment and infidelity had become too big a burden on his family.
His wife Gloria standing by his side in a rare public appearance, Cain decried the sustained accusations as false and declared he is “at peace” with his wife and with himself. But he said the claims have “sidetracked and distracted” from his ability to present a new vision for the country, as well as impacted his ability to raise money.
“I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction, the continued hurt caused on me and my family,” Cain said, adding that he reached the decision “with a lot of prayer and soul-searching.” FoxNews.com, 12/03/2011
Are history and the nasty Chicago-style Politics of the Democratic Party repeating themselves?
FoxNews.com reports that
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faced a storm of new sexual misconduct allegations Sunday after attorney Michael Avenatti said he had knowledge that Kavanaugh and high school friend Mark Judge targeted women with drugs and alcohol in order to “allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them”.
Avenatti, who represents adult film star Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Trump and has hinted at a possible presidential run, made the claims in an email to Mike Davis, the chief counsel for nominations on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He did not state the source of his “evidence” and did not name any alleged victims.
In Avenatti’s email, a screenshot of which he posted to Twitter, the lawyer told Davis that he had “significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington D.C. area during the early 1980s” where Kavanaugh, Judge and others “would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs.”
Avenatti included a list of questions for Senate investigators to ask Kavanaugh, including: “Did you ever attend any house party during which a woman was gang raped or used for sex by multiple men?”
Neither Kavanaugh nor Judge immediately responded to Avenatti’s accusations.
Meanwhile, the New Yorker magazine reported late Sunday that a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh claimed he exposed himself to her at a college party. Kavanaugh strongly denied that claim as a “smear.”
The woman, Deborah Ramirez, has called on the FBI to investigate the alleged incident. The magazine’s report, which is co-written by Pulitzer Prize winner Ronan Farrow, states that four Democratic senators have received information about Ramirez’s allegation and at least two have begun investigating it.
The report was published days before Kavanaugh is to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about an allegation of sexual assault against him dating to his days as a high school student in the early 1980s. The accuser in that case, Christine Blasey Ford, has agreed to go before the committee and tell her story.
“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so,” Kavanaugh responded. “This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.”
White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said: “This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man. This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say. The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh.”
The answer to my earlier question is a resounding, “YES!”
According to The Washington Times,
First there was a report from June in the Daily Caller that found “a new political advocacy group that vowed to put $5 million behind an effort to stop … Kavanaugh’s confirmation has significant ties to the liberal financier” Soros.
The group, Demand Justice, established in 2018, gets its money from the Sixteen Thirty Fund — and the Sixteen Thirty Fund received roughly $2.2 million from the Open Society Policy Center, one of Soros’ outlets, between the years of 2012 and 2016.
And Demand Justice’s entire mission is to advance a progressive agenda through the courts.
“[Our goal is to] sensitize rank-and-file progressives to think of the courts as a venue for their activism and a way to advance the progressive agenda,” DJ’s executive director, Brian Fallon, said to The New York Times.
But that’s not all.
Debra Katz, the attorney representing Kavanaugh’s accuser — Christine Blasey Ford — is vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight, an organization that has been directly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
Katz is also a hefty Democratic donor, giving thousands of dollars over the years to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other leftist candidates, as Front Page Mag reported.
Another prominent member of Ford’s legal team in Michael R. Bromwich. If his name sounds familiar, here’s why:
Bromwich was a prosecutor in the Iran Contra affair and became the Justice Department’s inspector general during the Clinton administration. He entered federal service again during the Obama administration, serving as the first director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.
Before all of that, however, Bromwich was a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and served as associate counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel for Iran-Contra. Bromwich was one of three lawyers for the government in the case of United States v. Oliver L. North.
That particular U.S. Attorney’s Office has been in the news a lot this past year.
The raid on the office of Former Trump Attorney Andre Cohen was conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Southern District of New York and was based at least partly on a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Back when the raid happened, I reported in a post titled, “FBI Raids Trump’s Attorney’s Office…Are We in the Middle of a Coup?” that
The Interim Federal Attorney for the Southern District of New York, whom Mueller got to facilitate yesterday’s raid on the offices of Trump’s attorney, is Geoffrey Berman, who was appointed by AG Jeff Sessions last January.
Berman was the co-managing shareholder of the New Jersey office of the law firm of Greenberg Traurig when he was appointed.
Per OpenSecrets.org, Greenburg Traurig has donated $291,498 to Democrats and $138,739 to Republicans so far in the 2018 Election Cycle.
Do you see a pattern here, gentle readers?
You have Washington Insiders, Deep State Operatives if you will, working to overturn the will of the American People, as expressed in the Presidential Election held on November 8, 2016.
And now, a third stooge has crawled out of the woodwork, Michael Avenatti.
For those of you who have forgotten about what a sleaze this guy is, allow me to refresh your memories,
Michael Avenatti is a high-profile American attorney, commentator, and entrepreneur who is based in Los Angeles. You can routinely see him on television and in the print medium as a professional pundit on a bunch of issues. He’s considered one of the foremost trial lawyers in America with victories across the country.
According to the biographical page on his website, he has been responsible as lead counsel for over 1 billion dollars in verdicts and settlements, including many which were well in excess of 10 million dollars.
Also according to his own biographical page on his website, during college and Law School. he worked at a political opposition research and media firm, which was run by Chicago Mayor, Clinton confidant, and former White House Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel. While with Emmanuel’s research and media firm, Avenatti worked on over 150 campaigns and 42 States, including multiple gubernatorial and Congressional campaigns, such as Joe Biden’s US Senate campaign.
3 years after graduating from Law School, he joined Greene, Broillet, & Wheeler, a Los Angeles boutique litigation firm. While he was there, he was spearheaded a successful idea theft lawsuit which involved, drumroll please, the reality show “The Apprentice”and its producer, Mark Burnett, as well as Donald Trump.
As an aside, it you look at contributions made in Santa Monica, CA, where Greene, Broillet, and Wheeler are located, to local Democratic Candidates, you will find several donations from lawyers with that firm.
Yes, indeed. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is indeed getting “Cained”.
The desperate, starving political vultures of the Far Left Democratic Party are giving the finger to the millions of us who voted Donald Trump into office as the 45th President of the United States of America.
They could care less about “Due Process”, “innocent until ‘PROVEN” guilty”, and the right of an American President to fill a Supreme Court Vacancy with a candidate of his choosing.
And, that is what it is all about, gentle readers…MONEY.
Billionaire Financier George Soros has a lot of it and he’s being using it to attempt to control America’s future by changing us into a Democratic Socialist country…something that America was never meant to be.
This whole “Resistance” against the Presidency of Donald J. Trump and his efforts to “Make America Great Again” positively reeks of Soros’ money and influence.
Just as Democrats have done time and again in the past several years, they are attempting to manipulate the law to thwart the will of average Americans.
Grassley should have called the vote last week.
I thought that the G.O.P. Elite would straighten up some when they saw how successful Trump was being as President.
Unfortunately, they are still acting like the “Vichy Republicans” that I identified them as during the reign of King Obama The First.
They need to all grow spines and start calling the Democrats and Soros by name and on the record, ending this travesty of justice being perpetrated on a good man who will make a fine addition to the United States Supreme Court.
Until He Comes,
