First there was Bill O’Reilly. Then there was Harvey Weinstein. Now there’s Mark Halperin.
All of those dudes thought themselves invincible. No one is invincible. No one has the right to touch anyone else without their consent. Just because they may be stronger does not allow one to do whatever they want to someone else. Just because they may be the ‘boss’ doesn’t allow them to do what they want.
Bill O’Reilly, the most popular figure on Fox news is gone. Harvey Weinstein used to run Hollywood – he’s gone. Mark Halperin is a political pundit we often watched on Morning Joe – he’s gone. This is the tip of the iceberg. The first women to come forward paved the way for the rest to find their inner strength and voices. High profile men who were or are sexual predators better find caves to hide in. It’s over for them.
Blanche’s prediction is that we will be hearing from more and more women and we will see more and more men fall from their high horse. What’s interesting about these men is that they don’t even have short-man syndrome. They were just plain entitled pigs. Feh.
There are two massive scandals brewing, both with the Clintons in the middle of them. We apologize for the length of this piece, but it’s well worth the read.
Here’s the first one: …The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about Donald Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin.
…Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C., firm, to conduct the research. Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community. Elias was paid by an unknown Republican donor who obviously did not want Trump to be president
….The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’ research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.
…When the Republican donor stopped paying for the research, Elias, acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, agreed to pay for the work to continue.
Scandal #2 Bill and Hillary are about to learn that they were not entitled to anything, let alone a few hundred million dollars in selling uranium to Russia.
The fact that CNN and MSNBC chose to ignore it this morning will not make it go away. Here’s the story in point form as it’s pretty complicated.
…The Department of Justice has lifted a gag order on a former FBI informant who is expected to have serious information about an agreement that allowed Russia to control about one-fifth of the uranium mining in the U.S. – and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s involvement in it.
…In 2013, Rosatom, backed by the Russian state, acquired a Canadian uranium mining company, now called Uranium One, which has assets in the U.S. Uranium and is key to making nuclear weapons.
…Through the deal, Russia is able to own about 20 percent of U.S. uranium production capacity.
…The agreement was approved by nine US government agencies including the State Department when Clinton was Secretary of State.
Here’s the clincher: ...Some investors involved in the deal reportedly donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Former President Bill Clinton also received a $500,000 speaking fee in Russia and reportedly met with Vladimir Putin around the time of the deal. Who knew?
The former FBI informant is going to be singing like a bird and will have documents to support what he will be saying.
What to look for: For the past ten months we have been hearing the media go after Trump and his sons for colluding with the Russians to fix the election. It now looks like it was the Democrats and the their party who, all along, was in bed with the Russians.
We have heard that people could go to prison for this. Blanche, you can be certain that greasy slimy Hillary and Bill will remain free and keep their money. They are truly disgusting people.
At Monday’s general assembly of the Students Society of McGill University, Noah Lew, was not ratified as a board director because a) he is Jewish and b) due to his opposition to the BDS Movement (Boycott, Divest and Sanctions Movement). When the vote was announced, it was roundly applauded.
While McGill principal Suzanne Fortier says McGill takes this matter very seriously, the student society is free and clear of any sanctions, have their own charter and can give Fortier the finger, which they have done in the past. Basically she is impotent in this matter.
If you went to McGill, may we suggest you voice your opinion and then talk with your check book – send them a check like this: $0.00.
Quebec politics has always been crooked. Nothing seems to go in a straight line. For example the non-working escalators in the metro. Seems it’s going to take about six months to get the parts to fix them. Seriously? It will only take six months if the company that has those parts made some kind of deal with the Quebec government.
Yesterday a many by the name of Guy Ouellette was arrested. Who is he?
A distinguished individual who worked for the Provincial police for over thirty years. His expertise was on the very scary world of criminal biker gangs and his testimony was used in several landmark court cases against the gangs. He co-founded the Wolverine squad — Quebec’s reaction to the increasingly bloody gang war that wracked the province for almost a decade.
Until yesterday, he was a member of the caucus of the Quebec Liberal Party, an MNA who had represented the Laval riding of Chomedey since 2007. Yesterday morning he was arrested by UPAC, Quebec’s anti-corruption unit. Premier Couillard was rendered paralyzed.
It is believed that someone disclosed information to the media about a confidential UPAC investigation into Liberal Party financing, an investigation that involved former premier Jean Charest.
Quebec politicians have long been believed to be on the take. So far, Charest, the former premier has been able to dodge those accusations. Perhaps Ouellette knows something and that’s why he was arrested. Or perhaps he knows others who know things. Stay tuned. This ain’t over yet.
Good Shabbos We’ll talk…
