Three Things You Need to Know - November 10, 2017

What Really Happened With Rand Paul and His Neighbor?

What really happened between Rand Paul and his neighbor? It’s now been exactly one week since Paul was attacked in his front yard, but the story remains a mystery.

The inconsistencies are what’s so strange. It was initially reported that Paul’s injuries were minor. Just a few nicks and scratches on his face and a sore side. We now know that those injuries were severely under reported. Paul suffered SIX broken ribs and bruises on his lungs. Three of his broken ribs were displaced fractures which could have led to internal bleeding and even death. These are not quote “minor injuries” as was reported. There’s only one way to describe this: VICIOUS.

The next inconsistency was the motive. Initially it was said that the attack was the result of a long-running feud the two men had over leaves and lawn clippings. Paul’s neighbors are saying this is ridiculous. One neighbor said that two men hadn’t even spoken to each other in several years. This seems to back up the statement made by Senator Paul’s advisor, Doug Stafford, who said, “The first ‘conversation’ with the attacker happened when Sen. Paul’s ribs were broken. This was not a ‘fight,’ it was a blindside, violent attack by a disturbed person.”

Another neighbor told reporters yesterday that the motive couldn’t have been about leaves or stray grass, saying the Paul’s had one of the most trim and tidy landscaped yards on the street.

An FBI investigation has begun to determine if the attack was motivated by politics. We know that the attacker hates Donald Trump, the GOP, follows Occupy Democrats social media, and makes anti-Republican posts on Facebook. The left is increasingly becoming more violent, and not only is it getting worse but it’s becoming more accepted. An unnamed person in Congress told a CNN reporter this about Paul:

“Can you imagine living next door to that guy? I’m pulling for the neighbor.”

Is this Congressman actually glorifying a possible politically motivated attack on a sitting Senator that resulted in 6 broken ribs and a bruised lung? Welcome to the new norm in violent US politics.

Pedohpile or Political Target?

Is Roy Moore a pedophile or a political target?

Yesterday, The Washington Post alleged that in 1979, when Moore was a single, 32-year-old prosecutor in Alabama, he invited a 14-year-old girl to his house where they had sexual contact, though not intercourse, according to the woman.

Moore is currently running against Democrat Doug Jones in a December 12 special election for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post interviewed four women who say they dated Moore in the late 1970s when they were teenagers and he was in his early thirties.

One of the women, Leigh Corfman, says Moore drove her to his house on two different occasions. Under Alabama law, the contact she says happened on the second visit would be considered a felony with a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. The age of consent at the time, and today is 16. Corfman never filed a police report or a civil suit, so the statute of limitations has long since expired.

The other three women were between the ages of 16-18 when they say Moore took them out on dates. All three say nothing more than occasional kissing ever occurred with Moore.

In 1985, Moore married Kayla Kisor. He was 38, she was 24. They are still married.

Moore has won elections in Alabama before and none of this ever came out. So why now? The special election is just one month away and the stakes are high – Democrats badly need this Senate seat. But, on the other hand, the culture has changed and perhaps these women are motivated by the idea that they are more likely to be believed.

Some are arguing this is a classic last-minute smear campaign. However, The Washington Post story is convincing. The reporters say they interviewed “more than 30 people” for the story, and there are a lot of details.

.

If Corfman’s allegation is true, it’s way beyond just creepy, its against the law, and Moore should drop out of the race. Donald Trump said the same on his trip to Asia.

One thing is clear – some of Moore’s supporters aren’t really helping his situation. Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler said, “…take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”

Uh… that case was just slightly different. He didn’t mention the virgin birth part.

Ziegler continued, “There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

If true, "unusual" is the least of his worries.

The Joke's On Him

Some people accomplish big things in life.

Comedian Louie CK is one of those people.

He has written jokes for the David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, Dana Carvey, and Chris Rock.

He has won six Emmy awards.

He has sold out Madison Square Garden...eight times.

And this week, his first film in sixteen years, was set to premiere.

But it was abruptly canceled due to “unexpected circumstances.”

That “unexpected circumstance” was an article published in the New York Times describing five women and their accusations against Louie CK’s sexual misconduct.

The accusations all detail similar behavior- basically he asked women if he could do things to himself in front of them.

But it really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has ever listened to Louie CK’s standup.

Jokes about that sort of thing are a regular part of his stage show. In one bit, he even admits that he is a prisoner to his perverse thoughts and that it makes him into a moron.

He has been using the stage as a confessional for years—as most comedians do.

What Louis CK is accused of is gross and perplexing for a myriad of reasons.

Did he do these things? Louie CK hasn't commented yet, but these incidents have been rumored for a long time.

There are more questions than answers at this point.

Here's what we know:

We need to empower women to say no. We need to empower them to tell their stories at the time they happen, and know they will be taken seriously.

And we need to teach men to be men. To live up to a moral standard. To not give in to their animal instincts.

Oh. And also-- don't ask women if they want to see you do stuff to yourself. THEY DONT.

MORE 3 THINGS

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
