WHEN A “CRIME” OR SIN, was committed in a Puritan commune, the punishments were severe and inhumane. Probably the most tame was having to wear a sign with a crimson initial–the Scarlet letter–of your transgression where ever you went.

But that was a long time ago, surly we have moved past all that, right? Apparently not. Starting with Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein, we have seen a litany of allegations of sexual abuse and harassment. Weinstein has suffered the worse of it, with many actresses claiming he took advantage of them to advance their careers.

What’s also interesting is how the claims are being prioritized. Those made against Mariah Carey by her body guards have gotten little attention.

Not to sound callous, but the nature of the showbiz industry is not exactly a big secret. You fall in line and do what your told or you move on. This is not to say I condone it, just saying you know what you’re getting yourself into. And now is it possible to change it? Doubt it.

It’s not just Hollywood that has to be concerned, this has affected politicians as well. The two most suspicious ones are the allegations against Judge Roy Moore and Jeff Sessions. The timing is just too convenient. Moore is running for office and Sessions is on the verge of getting replaced. Dirty politics at play here? Very likely. No matter how you feel about those accused of such things, you should be worried. This silences the voice of the voters.

Another politician who has been marked is Senator Al Franken but this one is different. For starters, the accuser–Leeann Tweeden–is not asking for any form of retribution, simply trying to empower of legitimate victims of abuse. Joe Biden too, has been accused of having “friendly hands” by the Senators children.

Inevitably, President Trump has been marked, in yet another attempt by the Democrats to “dethrone” him as Commander in Chief. With numerous claims of impropriety weighing on him, how can he possibly be deemed a valid sitting president? Ask Bill Clinton how he handled it. Or one of the many other previous executive office holders before him.

In yet another lie by the Sleeping Media, during a press conference one reporter asked why the administration called out Franken but not Moore. In a tweet, Trump said that if Moore did do what he was accused of he should step down. And there is photographic evidence to back up Tweeden’s claim against Franken. While Trump is being accused of playing politics, it appears he’s the only one not guilty of that.

Such acts of assault are the worst kinds of power and control over others, and should have hefty consequences if found guilty. But should the false accusations of harassment and those do happen. It’s not even uncommon; sometimes the claims are intentionally malicious, others simply a misunderstanding. Even the harassment accusations can ruin lives and should not be taken lightly. More than that, such laws and work related repercussions are ineffective and many times useless. Think about, basically you’re asking an irrational person to act rationally. So the innocent and rational person will comply and the one capable of such acts will find an easier target. What could help with that is a more clear concise definition for harassment, one less open to interpretation.

It might seem misogynistic but asking for scrutiny of the accusers is not invalid. It’s routine in every other crime but is being scaled down in harassment cases and that’s because of the feminist movements protestations. That’s not to say they didn’t helped changed things in a good way either, by shaking up the “good ole boys” clubs but have taken it too far. There has to be a third route of reason, away from the “good ole boys” and the radical, man-hating feminists. If calm discussion can’t be held, this will one more time when the solution is more bravado than substance. At the moment the current environment feels eerily similar to that of Salem, so who’s the next to hang.

AFTER HAVING THE FIRST BLACK president in the United States, the identity politics Progressives wanted to break the next milestone–the first female president. They threw everything behind Hillary Clinton, in an effort to demonstrate to the world that America is all about change.

The campaign made it sound like Clinton was the only option for this, despite the GOP offering Carly Fiorina and Michelle Bachman. Or green candidate Jill Stein, who would have also satisfied another first being the first third-party president. This is by no means an endorsement of any of these former candidates and I didn’t support any of them because of their stances on the issues.

Even before 2016 there were female presidential candidates but they were all third-party candidates. The first was Victoria Woodhull, running under the Equal Rights Party in 1872. The first to receive an electorial vote was Libertarian Party Vice Presidential candidate Toni Nathan in 1972. The first to be on the ballot was Lenora Fulani in 1988, under the New Alliance Party. She would have been not only the first third party female president but the first black president, where were the progressives then? Cynthia McKinney was the first female candidate from the Green Party, beating Stein in that honor.

That was third-party and many don’t care about them anyways, Clinton was the first duopoly candidate right? No, to that as well. The first there was encouraged by Dwight Eisenhower in 1960, but Oveta Hobby declined to run. In 1964, the Republican Party nominated Magaret Chase Smith. Smith qualified in six state primaries and got 25% of the vote. Not bad for the “victim” candidate.

The Democratic Party doesn’t really care about advancing women in any way. It’s about maintaining control in the political climate. Its agenda is to keep the country in a coin toss decision of which party rules, heads or tails, and nothing else. Yes, they support their women Senators and touted that up, but would turn on the in an instant if they didn’t stick strictly to party lines. Gender, race, sexual preference, still comes second to that no matter what they claim.

Minorities got the “right to vote” before women, since Obama beat out Clinton, apparently race still beats out gender.
