I have been out of the political loop over the last couple
of weeks, and I find myself concerned
with what I’ve seen happening in my absence.
It appears the sexual assault accusations against the powerful have
continued and are now reaching those in business and Washington DC, as well as
more in Hollywood. I cannot say these
reports surprise me in the least, as we’ve all heard the stories of wrongdoing
throughout the years. However, the
surprising part is how those who had once circled the wagons around Bill
Clinton are now so quick to throw him and others accused of sexually
mistreating women under the bus. I do
worry, though, this can also be used as a tool to destroy a political opponent
in the vilest way.
Years ago, my son faced such a young woman. Angry because he would not have sex with her,
this underage girl decided to cry rape.
After hiring a lawyer to protect him from facing 30 years in prison and his
passing a lie-detector test and she facing taking the same test, she finally
confessed how she had made the story up because she was angry at his
rejection. The exact words of this
13-year-old girl were, “No one tells me
However, the damage to my son’s name and reputation was
already done. The whispers of his guilt
continued until he was forced to drop out of his junior year of high school.
Then to add insult, NOTHING happened
to this girl for filing a false report. Yes, that’s right, she walked away free
and clear to do this to another young man.
As a victim of rape, myself, I find a woman who cries
wolf only makes it difficult for women who are actually attacked by sexual
predators to be believed. I assume this
is why so many women never come forward and file charges against their
attackers. I was raped in the early 1980’s, and because I was on a date with my
attacker, I remained silent. I was led
to believe by those in the media no one would believe
my story, so I held my anger and pain inside and continued on with my life. I
must tell you when my son faced false charges of rape only to have the girl
claim it was done out of revenge, I burned with rage. It took all the strength
I could muster not to slap the smug expression off her face.
Now we watch those who had protected Bill Clinton from the
claims of sexual assault from NUMEROUS
women use this method to destroy their political opponents. To use this horrible act as a tool for
political gain is truly sickening and
those guilty of this should face legal punishment. Women need to wake up and
stop being used. We have tried to prove
our worth over the years as strong, self-sufficient women. We have moved into the world of business and
politics as leaders. So, WHY would
we let ourselves get used in such a manner?
When women allow themselves to be used as political pawns, we are
letting ourselves to be raped in entirely a different
way. We only lesson the strength
and believably of the TRUE claims
Years ago, women marched and struggled for our place in the
world. However, now we have taken a step
backward and dishonored the women who stood against those who would lessen them as human beings. Shame
on women who cry wolf for they are no better than those who treat women as
Sorry, I haven't posted in a while, but I've been buried under work. However, I felt the need to crawl out of my cave for a bit and voice my opinion on the current events transpiring in DC.
I'm sure you have heard the old saying of whenever you point a finger of guilt at others, there are three pointing back at you. Well, that's something the MSM and Democrats are learning with the news coming out over the last few days. I must admit I enjoy watching them twist themselves into knots in the futile attempt to save face. Now, they are even grabbing onto the lie it was the Republicans who paid for the infamous dossier.
I watched all the evening shows on Fox News last night and was pleased to see how this story of collusion with the Russians is now taking a complete turn and is landing in the laps of the Democrats, Hillary Clinton, and the Obama administration. I then watched President Trump on Lou Dobbs. The President seemed so relaxed and I loved the sparkle in his eyes. He had proclaimed his innocence from the beginning. We, as Patriots had believed in his and his campaign's innocence. We all knew how the Democrats play the game. Why win on your merits when you can cheat and steal victory at the ballot box?
So, here we are, my fellow Patriots. Those on the far-left had lied, threatened, cheated, and colluded with the Russians in the quest for power and money. Everything they had accused President Trump of doing, they, in fact, are guilty of themselves. Today, I felt a collective sigh across this great land. Not only is President Trump vindicated, but we are as well.
However, now is not the time to relax because this battle is not over. The Democrats are wounded and cornered which makes them even more dangerous. Stay strong, my fellow patriots, we may have won this battle, but the war is not over. The swamp in DC is still FULL of rats, and the draining has only begun.
By Linda L Barton I must admit that I'm not surprised, but as a published author myself, I find this rather upsetting. We've all heard about Hillary Clinton's latest book, What Happened. And any of us who followed the 2016 Presidental campaign saw for ourselves how the Clinton campaign was not working on all cylinders. She ignored several states and couldn't seem to fill a room, let alone an auditorium with thousands of excited supporters like President Trump did. We repeatedly heard, how a Hillary win was a certainty and anyone who thought Donald Trump had a chance was just plain stupid and delusional. But rally after rally only proved the support for a potential President Trump was strong and growing. Then we all saw the rallies for Hillary Clinton. I don't know about you, but when I saw pictures of empty auditoriums where they had everyone all huddled together for the photo-op, I laughed myself silly. Now, we have her latest book release. First, we all saw the picture of her in Costco for a book signing. Sorry, Hillary, NONE of us believe this whole 'I'm one of the people' ploy you're doing. Then I received an email today with an article on how Amazon is removing her 1-Star reviews. WHAT??? How is this even possible? As an author, myself, I find this beyond offensive. How many of us who have sold our books on Amazon would love to have those nasty 1-Star reviews erased from our book page? I know I would. I remember the first time I read my first 1-Star review. I was damn-near suicidal. The problem was I didn't get them because my story sucked. No, I got them because of a stupid act on my part of not making sure my debut book was free of typos. I didn't learn of my mistake until I did an Amazon Free-Days promo and 26,000 copies of my typo loaded masterpiece were sitting on kindles around the world. Yeah, that's a tough lesson to live with, but my writing career survived. So, why does Hillary Clinton get to hide her 1-Star reviews? I hate to break it to her AND Amazon, readers want honesty. They don't want to be tricked into buying a book with false reviews. Here is a quote from Amazon on the subject: “Amazon said it has mechanisms in place to ‘ensure that the voices of the many do not drown out the voices of a few.’”
What??? Did I read that correctly??? If that's the case, they need to remove all the 1-Star reviews on my debut novel. Here's a taste of Hillary Clinton's reviews for What Happened - It’s the same tired list of excuses why Hillary lost. Nothing new that we haven’t heard from her and her minions before. It’s a very fast read, but a waste of money. Cheaper just to Google, Hillary Clinton’s excuses. She blames everyone but herself - Michael V.
I wrote a verified purchase review, and it has been deleted 3 times. If Amazon doesn’t like what we have to say, don’t ask for input -BabaLaon
I’m a non-partisan who has actually read this book and have to agree with many of the negative reviews here. This pretty much sums up the book: 1) It was MY turn 2) The campaign was absolutely impeccable..without any flaws whatsoever 3) It was everyone else’s fault - Manuel Beiroo
This book is exactly what we all expected, full of anger and bitterness and no actual remorse or even the hint of personal responsibility. Sure she writes the ubiquitous " I take full responsibility blah blah blah...". In fact, she blames everyone but herself. From the Russians to her emails to Kellyann Conway and fake news, no one is left alone. The only good part of this book is the ability to relive the experience of the total and complete take-down of a woman who dedicated her entire life to her own enrichment from a guy who is the exact opposite. It's nothing but poetic justice and this book is great at reliving every moment of it - Michael.
So, there you have it. Amazon is propping up a book in an entirely dishonest way. I realize that I don't have the name recognition as someone like Hillary Clinton, BUT we are both offering a product to the reading public. Readers deserve the right to leave an honest review, and it's up to the writer to take those reviews and move on.
Now, I hope you don't decide to boycott Amazon for this because there are authors who have excellent books on there for your reading enjoyment. We work hard and spend hours sweating over our computers bringing our stories to life on the pages. I just needed to voice my opinion of this practice by Amazon of handling certain people differently than the rest of us. The sad part about all of this is we all know she had a ghost-writer do the all work for her.
Okay, I'll jump down from my soapbox now. I just wanted to voice my protest at the way she is ALWAYS given cover. Come on, Hillary put on your big girl panties and face the music like the rest of us must.
I wanted to share a Podcast I recorded for my Deadly Reads Radio YouTube Channel.
The events of that day 16 years ago touched the lives and hearts of all Americans. We, here at Deadly Reads Radio, share our thoughts and where we were on the day that forever changed our country. Some may find our words offensive because we do not adhere to the rules of Political Correctness. Opinions are our own and were spoken from our hearts.
I was someone’s mother, sister, wife, daughter.
Don’t forget me.
I was someone’s father, brother, husband, and son.
We went to the towers that day
not expecting what was headed our way.
Some of us died instantly when that plane
crashed into the World Trade Center.
Death toyed with our lives, but, at least,
some of us were able to say our last good byes.
When 9/11 comes round again, hear my plea.
Please, don’t forget those who died, please don’t forget me.
Okay, I don't even know where to start. Ever since January 20, 2017 those on the Left have lost their freakin' minds. All we've heard is Resist, Resist, Russia, Russia, Trump cheated, Impeach him, and now we have this crazed outburst over what happened in Charlotteville, VA.
While I don't like the KKK any more than anyone else, since when did they become part of the Alt-right? (Whatever that is) That last thing I remember was the KKK was founded by the DEMOCRAT PARTY. So, unless the Democrats are now part of the right-wing, that claim is utter BS. Then the MSM and Democrats are pointing fingers at the White Supremacists/Neo-Nazis. Well, I hate to tell them the Nazis were NOT right-wingers, they were Democratic Socialists. Do you see where I going with this?
From my understanding, there was a group of people who got a permit to protest the removal of a Gen. Robert E Lee statue and the renaming of a park. They said the statue was part of Southern History and should remain. The night before they gathered peacefully... then the Party-Crashers showed up...uninvited and ready for violence.
I'm sure those who got the permit to protest did not want such hate groups, crashing their gathering. It destroyed their protest and cost a young woman her life. What upsets me is people are overlooking the other side of protesters. Who invited BLM and AntiFa to this gathering? Who bussed them in? Who organized their group? We all know who...George Soros!!
I am SO SICK of how Americans are allowing the ALT-Left to control the narrative. I'm sick of the lying media, spinning everything to fit THEIR agenda. I'm also sick of those weak and cowardly Republicans who say whatever they can to appear PC, so as not to offend anyone.
Well, here's a newsflash...I'M OFFENDED WITH ALL OF THEM. Fox used to be somewhere to go and get the truth, but they appear to be joining this steady destruction of the United States of America through lies and fear.
Those people wanting to destroy our history because it offends them through violence and destruction are NO DIFFERENT than ISIS. There will come a day when those same fools will wonder what happened to their freedom. They'll learn what it's like to live in a country where the government decides who lives or dies; a country where your life is not your own. I used to think Agenda 21 and the New World Order was a bunch of stupid conspiracy stuff, but no longer. My fellow Patriots, we are seeing its evil first hand.
Our Founding Fathers gave We, the People this Republic, now it's up to us to protect it. Can we do it, or is it already lost?
