What’s really behind the storm of sexual harassment allegations inundating the entertainment, news and political worlds?
When mainstream media hypes up a topic, they’re diverting the public’s attention from other subjects by convincing society that this is the most pressing issue we are facing. They’re also conditioning society to accept institutional policies, regulations and control as a solution to the problem. Mainstream media is roughly 25 percent truths and 75 percent distorted information/lies and media has always been one of the most effective tools to control how the public thinks.

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the #MeToo hashtag exploded across social media. Women who had experienced sexual harassment and abuse came forward to make sure that everyone knew they had experienced suffering at the hands of men.
However, one writer for The Federalist thinks that the hashtag has gone too far.
In a sure-to-be-controversial piece titled “Ladies, You Haven’t Been Raped If Someone Catcalled At You,” Inez Feltscher said that the #MeToo social media movement hasn’t made a bit of difference for perverts like Weinstein while putting men without perverted designs on edge.
“It’s not a real solution to suggest, as the Left does, that society should just ‘teach men not to rape,’” Feltscher wrote.
“The Weinsteins of the world won’t care, and the men who do need a better script for how to express interest in women should not be punished for ever-more-minor infractions in a culture that thinks that all displays of masculinity, whether gentlemanly or inappropriate, are equally sexist.
“Meanwhile, the sleazeballs don’t give a rip about #MeToo, but good men are forced into questioning their own innocent interactions,” she said. – Continue Reading
France’s “Me too” campaign may come with legislation
Marlène Schiappa, France’s gender equality minister (yes, that’s a thing), has proposed putting forward a bill in parliament that would fine people for engaging in street harassment — including aggressive catcalls.
“The point is that the whole of society has to redefine what it will accept and what it will not,” Schiappa told La Croix, a French Catholic newspaper. On French radio she explained that policing behavior on the street is “completely necessary because at the moment street harassment is not defined in the law. … We can’t currently make a complaint.”
Pressed on what behaviors would be considered harassment, she replied, “We know very well at what point we start feeling intimidated, unsafe, or harassed in the street.”
“Seriously? So now teaching our kids to show affection to FAMILY is basically child abuse?” one commenter wrote. “Unless something inappropriate is going on, this shouldn’t even be a topic to discuss… and if that is the case, that is an entirely different discussion.”
Notice the formulaic talking points being rolled out at every level of government.
Ryan called the hearing an “important step” in efforts to combat sexual harassment and added, “As we work with the Administration, Ethics, and Rules committees to implement mandatory training, we will continue our review to make sure the right policies and resources are in place to prevent and report harassment.”
“These are very important first steps,” Dayton said of their resignations. Since those allegations first came to light, Dayton launched a review to overhaul the executive branch’s training and reporting procedures for sexual harassment.
It’s interesting to note that Rep. Tony Cornish was the chair of the House Public Safety Committee for the past three years and Dan Schoen was a democratic member of the Judiciary and Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee.
The Minnesota House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee oversees and funds all areas within public safety, including the court system, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and other corrections and justice programs.
The Judiciary and Public Safety Committee is a standing committee of the Minnesota State Senate. The Judiciary Committee has jurisdiction over all bills relating to the judiciary, human rights, family law, property law, remedies, crime prevention, law enforcement, criminal justice, and corrections
On November 21, 2017, Cornish announced that he would resign from office on December 1 due to sexual misconduct allegations levied against him by state Rep. Erin Maye Quade (D) and lobbyist Sarah Walker. In a statement announcing his resignation, he apologized for his behavior.

At the time his resignation was announced, Schoen denied the allegations against him. Schoen’s resignation is effective December 15. To read more about the Schoen allegations and other instances of sexual misconduct at state capitols in 2017, click here.
EVERY U.S. SENATOR WILL BE REQUIRED TO UNDERGO SEXUAL HARASSMENT TRAINING
“[T]his resolution will simply require that all Senators and staff receive sexual harassment training, as well as on other forms of harassment, at least once every 2 years.”
(CNSNews.com) – Every member of the U.S. Senate and all staff members are required to undergo sexual harassment training in the next 60 days and at least once every two years after that under the terms of a resolution that the Senate approved on Thursday evening.
The resolution was sponsored by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D.-Minn.), the ranking member of the Senate Rules Committee, and co-sponsored by 19 others. Among the co-sponsors were Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.), Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R.-Iowa), Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D.-Ill.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Texas).
“[T]his resolution will simply require that all Senators and staff receive sexual harassment training, as well as on other forms of harassment, at least once every 2 years—in addition to that, 60 days after it passes,” Klobuchar said on the Senate floor shortly before the resolution was approved.
“What happens if Senators do not receive this training?’ said Klobuchar.
“The American people will know.”
Good old Amy never misses an oppotunity to seize on current events to publicize her virtuous feelings!
The mainstream media is saying taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for congressional sexual harassment settlements. Taxpayers should however, have to pay for training with no evidence that this training has had any effect on preventing workplace harassment.
Mainstream media is also injecting President Trump into these sexual harassment stories every chance they get. Since the Russian collusion coup d’etat isn’t working, it’s time to try sexual harassment claims in an attempt to force Trump from office.
“Some of the women who accused Donald Trump of sexual harassment or assault during the presidential campaign wonder when the president might finally pay a price for what he allegedly did to them.
I feel this issue has been ‘on hold’ all year, but not forgotten,” says Stoynoff in an email. “It’s been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker. But now the heat’s on and it’s going to boil and the lid is going to blast off.”
That blast off may come with help from a defamation lawsuit filed by Summer Zervos, a former Apprentice contestant who has alleged Trump began kissing her very aggressively and put his hand on her breast without her consent in 2007.
Zervos filed the suit after Trump repeatedly called his accusers liars. Through her attorney, Gloria Allred, she declined to be interviewed for this story.
Norm Eisen, former chief White House ethics lawyer for President Barack Obama, says the lawsuit is “critically important” because “the president’s alleged offenses against women, of sexual harassment, sexual assault, are very serious, much more serious than many of those that have resulted in people losing their jobs.
Trump, meanwhile, has called the ongoing legal case against him “totally fake news. It’s just fake. It’s fake. It’s made-up stuff, and it’s disgraceful.”
In a statement to PEOPLE, his attorney Marc Kasowitz says the lawsuit is “based on allegations of events that never occurred.”

The hashtag #MeToo has gone viral sparking a revolution. Those that post it are announcing that they too are a victim of sexual assault. The general thrust behind the movement is to illustrate the pervasiveness of predatory perversion upon the female population. Males have also taken to using the tag to highlight their victim-hood. Prior to this trend sexual assault victims had a hard enough time. To seek justice victims had to publicly come forward and face their accusers in court as they recounted their traumatic experiences. The veracity of claims have been further scrutinized because of the significant number of false accusations and the magnitude of injustice that results when these false accusation lead to a conviction. It is my opinion that #MeToo will further discredit real victims. This effect will be hyper amplified by the velocity and volume of social media. Any Twitter/Instagram user with any agenda at no cost and no risk can now claim victim-hood. Sympathy, genuine or not, will be achieved through social media solidarity. The authentic victims of sexual violence will be marginalized drowned out by a sea of social sympathy. Unfortunately for them and the rest of society there is a more sinister second phase to this social engineering operation.
Sexual Assault is a serious societal issue with insidious long terms effects. Efforts should be made to reduce this scourge in society. The social media witch hunt is being presented as a way to take down powerful villains. Harvey Weinstein is currently being eviscerated by social media. Whether these sensationalized scandals are actually happening or they are completely scripted doesn’t really matter. The world believes that the King of Hollywood is being tarred and feathered by the unwashed masses. The elites can use their war chests to mount a defense should one ever really be required. But it won’t.
The true target of all this public finger pointing is the general public itself. Anyone’s reputation can now be destroyed by synchronizing bawdy tales of sexual assault. These stories can be created via computer algorithms and cast widely across numerous platforms. Likes can be manipulated and retweets can be accelerated bolstering public condemnation. ‘Victims’ backstories can be corroborated and their timelines coordinated through the backdating of a newly created social media presence.. Unlike the wealthy entertainers currently being confronted most folks can not afford to fight such allegations. Employers will fire the accused. Spouses will divorce them . Friends will turn away. This is the new world we are creating . Enemies of the powerful, challengers of the system and investigators of the truth will be destroyed with a key stroke. The justly motivation of saving women and empowering the voiceless is being used against those it seeks to protect. Proponents of #MeToo say a revolution is underway. They are mistakenly doing the bidding for those they oppose creating a much more dangerous reality for all woman (& all men). A world where everyone can be silenced. The desired empowerment will not occur. The opposite will happen. There is a term for that. It is enslavement.
