Defining Kirsten Gillibrand

Here is a Tweet from Trump on Dec. 12 after our Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand called on the president to resign: “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Gillibrand responded with a Tweet of her own: “You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office.”

God, how I wish she would silence herself.

So, in preparation for this column I went to my dictionary to look up the definitions of a couple of words. I looked up fraud, then phony, then hypocrite. Guess what I found? A picture of Kirsten Gillibrand after each word.

She was doing good when she took it upon herself to highlight sexual harassment and worse in the military. This led her to think of herself as the self-appointed champion of abused women. Under every rock, no matter whether innocent flirtation or the real thing, she found harassment.

Not only has she called on the president to resign, she was the first sitting senator to call on Al Franken to resign. When asked whether Bill Clinton should have resigned back in 1998, during the height of his scandal, she said yes. On the topic of Clinton, she was asked why she now feels that way after staying silent all these years. She said that times have changed. Wow!

It was only last year she was campaigning with the former president and taking his money during her re-election bid. I figured out what changed. Bill Clinton, like Al Franken, is no longer of use to her. With Hillary’s loss last year, the Clintons are yesterday’s news. If either were still able to advance her career, she would have remained silent, as she has in the past.

She recently did an interview in which she said she has been harassed in the halls of Congress. The problem is she would not name names. This is because she still needs to be a member of the club in good standing. She will continue to protect those who harassed her as long as it is a benefit to her. Always remember what I have said: Liberals are liberals first. The agenda comes before anything else. Everything else is tied for second.

Since last week, the press and Democrats have been in a tizzy over Trump’s use of the word “begging” in his Tweet. In fact, Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused Trump of “slut-shaming” her. Gillibrand said that the Tweet was sexist. Other than being true, where is it sexist? Where did Trump call her a slut? I will tell you where.

The Democrats and the media are so wedded to identity politics they could not fathom any other meaning. However, think of it this way: Let us say Trump was talking about Senator Schumer, who also used to call upon him for money, and said, “Chuck Schumer came to my office and he would do anything for campaign contributions.” What would people think Trump meant? Would not the natural thing to think of Trump’s meaning be that Schumer would work to pass laws favoring the contributor? Remove a regulation? Grease a wheel? So, why is it so difficult to believe that was the same meaning of Trump’s tweet?

This is all part and parcel of what I have been writing about for a while now. Remember the end game: Nullify last year’s election. The reality is that this is ginned up! It is a political opposition research strategy! Starting with Harvey Weinstein, they have been building up to this. It’s all structured. It is all manufactured. Al Franken was jettisoned because the governor of Minnesota is a Democrat and he will appoint another Democrat to that seat. Besides, Franken is not gone yet. Do not be surprised if a couple of weeks down the road he rescinds is resignation. Remember, he won his first race by 300 votes that magically appeared after the umpteenth recount. I would not put anything past this person.

With John Conyers and Franken gone, the Democrats now say Congress needs to investigate Trump? Do you know who is doing the digging up of information for this? None other than Robert Mueller. The whole thing is bull.

This is what I say. What say you?

I Do Not Make Stuff Up!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote in my column, “Watergate analogies apply to Obama, not Trump,” that President Obama’s Justice Department planted a spy in the Trump campaign. I said I used the term “spy” because this was a counter-intelligence operation, not a criminal investigation, where the term informant would have been proper.

That statement has been brought ...

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
