A Headless Snake- Cenk Uygur Out At Justice Democrats!

#JusticeHypocrites

Cenk Uygur, who was the first and the loudest to shriek for the blood of former Minnesota senator Al Franken, is no longer a Justice Democrat. His own people ousted him after blogs surfaced in which Uygur and a crony are making some truly repugnant comments about women.

In the posts, Uygur claimed that he was “done” dating any woman if he hadn’t felt their breasts by the third date. There was talk regarding three teenage girls whom he described as “whores in training” and “literally looking for boys to pick them up.”

Women, they said, were “genetically flawed” if they don’t want to have sex often enough.

When the news first broke of the Justice Democrats attacking Al Franken, and Cenk leading the charge, I couldn’t help feeling a bit puzzled. It didn’t quite jive with what I remembered of the Young Turks.

Isn’t this the same organization that featured a reoccurring 2009 segment called “Guess The Camel Toe, with Ana Kasparian”How pure is that?

The whole concept of the organization was an idiotic joke from the start. The organization purported to help the causes of the Democratic Party by getting rid of our best leaders, who invariably are those who refused to line up behind Bernie Sanders in 2016.

Their plan is the administration of “purity tests“(see the Brand New Congress website) to our elected Democratic leaders. Only by way of this, Cenk and his cronies said, can we force the Democratic Party to comply with our directives.

Anyone who wasn’t “progressive” enough for the former conservative is to get in line or face primary challenges from the left, in this most crucial year of midterms.

They know full well it’ll take us all working together to unify and beat back the wave of Trumpism washing over the country. They know we want our country back on its feet more than anything, and that there’s nothing we won’t sacrifice to get it there.

So they used our fervent patriotism to try and strong-arm us into handing them over the reins of power.

This will never happen, as they have proven themselves unfit in every way. Irascibility and an exclusionary attitude will not win you the love of the people. Nor will it win you any elections. But the simple fact remains, that’s what they want.

“It is time for them to step aside and let us lead. If you want unity, we’re ready to lead,” Uygur said on his internet TV show, The Young Turks.

The sheer brazen insolence! How many Presidents have you helped get elected, Cenk? Worthless as can be. Good for nothing but hurting real Democrats.

What kind of sense does it make, to throw primary challenges at Democrats already holding office? None, of course. But that’s what they’re doing.

The Justice Democrats formally came together with the Brand New Congress back in March, with the intent of getting rid of every Democratic candidate everywhere who will not line up behind Bernie. They are the biggest, the wealthiest, and the best organized of the fake-left organizations we will have to fight this year. Of all the splintered fragments of Bernie or Bust, this one is the most dangerous.

Or at least, was the most dangerous.

So the real question now is, how long will the body live on without the head?

The famous French chemist Antoine Lavoisier is often said to have arranged an experiment before his execution by guillotine where he would try and blink as many times as possible before his head finally died. It is said he managed 15-20.

Maybe Cenk ought to hit the medical journals on the subject. He’ll have a lot of time on his hands coming up.

Although it is satisfying to watch a jerk get jerked around, it’s also important to make one thing clear. It is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that a few lewd comments made in one’s youth should not be enough, by themselves, to make a person unfit to lead.

The whole incident also provides a sad commentary on the hypocrisy of the entire organization. It is not showing signs of developing adult principles like maturity or forgiveness, or even the makings of their own progressive values which would require believing people can change.

It’s childish to cut down your own leaders over imperfections in their values so you don’t look “hypocritical.”

Liberal activist Carl Benjamin, who previously endorsed Justice Democrats, said such actions ring of a “power play” over the founder they “knocked off.”

The Democratic Party that Millennial Democrats have been fighting for has always valued due process and due diligence, rather than hasty and emotional throwing of our own to the wolves.

The great thing about being a Democrat is knowing that other Democrats can be counted on to take your back when the enemy throws a low blow at you. If we lose that, we lose everything.

This is exactly what Senator Al Franken was not able to count on recently. As a result, there has been a massive backlash against the people responsible, like our good buddy Cenk, whose own past is obviously less than admirable.

At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that all of us are people. We all said and did stupid things when we were younger. If that’s enough to disqualify you as a leader later in life, then no one can have the job. The Justice Democrats and Cenk Uygur are learning this the hard way. And too late.

A Constitutional Crisis- Mueller Under Attack.

American Hero

In the irony of a lifetime, it is us Democrats who must now defend Robert Mueller, a Republican, from the slings and arrows of his own party.

According to Democrat Jackie Speier, rumour has it on Capitol Hill Trump is planning to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller as early as later this week. This is not something that could happen in an instant, but the threat is real and the thought is grotesque. It was probably kicked up because of the panic caused by the very idea. As a distraction from the tax plan, this was undoubtedly a big help to Trump.

It’s almost an application of Henry Kissinger’s old “madman” policy, e.g. You’d better make a deal with us because the guy with the keys is crazy. God only knows what he might do. In this case, the implication is, “You’d better back off, and let us have our tax plan victory, or we’re going to destroy your democracy”.

The alt-right propaganda pipeline has been preparing the groundwork for an attack on the Special Counsel Robert Mueller for the last month or so now. It’s really quite despicable. This man held the country together during 9/11, with less than a year’s experience.

What did Trump do during 9/11? He spent the day giving interviews boasting that one of his towers might well be the tallest in the city. At the cost of the World Trade Center. And thousands of lives.

Trump is hardly even going through the motions anymore of bothering to hide that Vladimir Putin is his boss. So he spreads this rumour, and he sends lawyers Mueller’s way next week. He wants to try and bully them into giving the assurance that Trump himself is no longer under fire- ironically, the same assurance James Comey gave freely, before he was randomly fired.

The truth of the matter, though, is that Trump is very much still under fire. In fact, the fire is spreading. The trials haven’t even started yet. Those will be a disaster for Trump.

Once Michael Flynn brings down Jared Kushner, it is very hard to believe he will stay loyal to elderly Donald at the cost of his own future. He won’t be able to take jail, in there wondering what Ivanka is up to. He’ll snitch his way out of everything he can, just like George Papadoupolis.

But long before any of this takes place, they’re going to try every dirty trick in the book.

The possibility that they’re laying the groundwork to get rid of Mueller cannot be discounted. We have passed the point of paranoia. Trump lies whenever he gets the chance. We will have to keep a close eye on how he handles this and be ready to meet up with national resistance efforts coordinated to take to the streets en masse.

Look for a scenario in which he fires the attorney general Jeff Sessions or the current head of the Department of Justice Rod Rosenstein. If either of them should suddenly depart the stage, watch out.

Those are the guys who would have to sign off on the termination of the Special Counsel. As Sessions recused himself and Rosenstein has stated he’d refuse to fire Mueller without cause, it’s unlikely it will happen with the two of them in charge. If they were to be replaced by some alt-right peons wielding rubber stamps, however, it would be possible.

Going forward, it’s important to keep our spirits up and our focus razor sharp. The Republicans have just passed their own demise in the form of this tax bill. We have to focus on winning elections. Every seat is crucial.

 

Earlier this evening, a Republican lobbyist called for President Donald Trump to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. This pronouncement was made in Arlington, Virginia, to the sparse attendees of random guy Jack Burkman’s fundraiser, held to help cover the legal defenses of Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide facing several felony charges.

“I don’t like what Bob Mueller’s doing. I think Mr. Gates and Mr. Manafort and Mr. Flynn have been unfairly targeted, and I see Mueller as a desperate guy, an increasingly desperate prosecutor,” said the unhappy Mr. Burkman, sentiments that are echoed by a growing number of alt-right lunatics. These people have respect for nothing.

It has to be understood that if Trump wins this battle, our democracy will probably not recover.

This is not the same Congress that eviscerated Nixon for firing Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox. The crisis we see on the horizon is simply this: If they strong-arm this investigation closed, it will cause a rift of trust between us and our leaders that never heals. It will take hundreds of years to undo the damage.

Putin will work his tendrils in, one millimetre at a time, until they become like strong ropes, tying down a giant for thousands of miles. It is happening all around us, even now. Robert Mueller is the most powerful defence we have against it. When we fight for him, we fight for the country.

Trust Matters! The Betrayal of Al Franken and the Future of the Party.

Stand Up for Senator Franken

It was never about Donald Trump. It took me until this morning to realize that, but I finally did. Trump did not beat us last year. We beat ourselves.

This is why they speak of the impermanence of a house divided.

Over the last eleven months, an outsider would have come along and concluded that a Manichean struggle of epic proportions was taking place within our troubled borders. A pure, unadulterated, good vs. evil type of question.

On the one hand, you’ve got the greedy, wicked ogre-king, Donald Trump, grabbing for everything, eating up all the people. And on the other, his foes in blue stand small but brightly arrayed to do battle with him. Surely, in the end, justice and God will prevail, and the obscuring cloud will no more blot out stars.

In real life, things are never this simple.

Unfortunately, in our story, the truly terrifying one does not even live within our borders. The ogre-king proves nothing more than a defective robot- and it turns out there are Trojan Horses among the brave armies of blue.

It has been a week to try our souls, and there is no doubt about it. Once again, we find ourselves in the miserable position of being fragmented and disrupted by the enemy, while at the same time losing Senator Al Franken, one of the best guys we had in the Congress.  It’s a sickening state of affairs. They’re laughing at us.

The Democratic Party that Millennial Democrats have been fighting for has always valued due process and due diligence, rather than hasty and emotional throwing of our own to the wolves.

The great thing about being a Democrat is knowing that other Democrats can be counted on to take your back when the enemy throws a low blow at you. If we lose that, we lose everything.

This is exactly what Senator Al Franken was not able to count on recently, and everyone has seen it. As a result, there has been a massive backlash against the leaders of the party responsible. And rightly so.

Furthermore, when we take a look at that specific group of personnel, we’re seeing some familiar names on the list.

First and foremost, you guessed it, was none other than Rape Fantasy Bernie, who did not follow Franken into resignation.

“Sen. Franken has said that he will be making an announcement about his political future tomorrow. The right thing is for him to resign,” Sanders, I-Vt., who ran for president as a Democrat in the 2016 elections, said in a statement issued Wednesday afternoon. This from a guy who won’t even stand up for abortion.

At times like this, it is hard to hold one’s temper.

Other prominent figures aligned with the Sanders camp have also called for replacing the beleaguered Senator Franken with a fellow Minnesota Democrat, Rep. Keith Ellison, as support grew Friday for the senator’s resignation. Ellison, of course, was Bernie’s choice for DNC chairman last fall.

The so-called Justice Democrats, a group of former Sanders campaign staffers and other radical leftists, launched a petition asking Franken to resign following the release of a photo showing him gesturing crudely toward conservative talk show host Leeann Tweeden.

It was one of the greatest disappointments of my life to see names I respect join that list. It’s a stain on what has otherwise been a very heroic year for us.

Democrats have stood together in a bloc during this whole nightmare, and saved us from the worst of Trump’s tendencies time and again. Up until now, we have been really proud of all of them. They have represented the will of the people to the utmost extent of their considerable abilities.

Bernie Sanders has not. He wouldn’t even vote to sanction Russia, and that too was a small wonder, considering his campaign was near as tied in with them as Donald Trump’s.

Bernie Sanders has been on the wrong side of every one of the domestic problems encountered by the Democratic Party. From the day the election ended onward. He’s always got his nose into everything we do, all the while making sure everyone knows he isn’t one of us. It would be a joke if it was funny.

The 2016 DNC chairmanship election featured the eventual victor, Tom Perez, running against Bernie’s chosen man, Keith Ellison. It was a mess. It was the primary all over again. Acrimony, screaming, division.

Shortly afterwards, Bernie and Perez set out across America, on the Unity tour that spotlighted how ridiculous the very concept was. That tour did a great job showing everyone we had no Unity whatsoever.

Bernie’s supporters repeatedly booed Tom Perez. Bernie refused to say he was a Democrat. And Bernie used the opportunity to ask for money- for himself.

While he did pay his share of the bill for the Unity tour, he still has yet to raise a single dollar for the DNC’s crucial midterm races. It’s just the same as last year. During the 2016 presidential race, Sanders set up a joint fundraising committee with the DNC — but no money ever passed through it.

There’s no need to recite the whole grocery list; it’s a slow and frustrating process even thinking about it. Everyone involved already knows.

Bernie lied for all he was worth, during the 2016 election cycle. He was promising things that he knew there was no way to deliver. He swore up and down and all around, that in future elections he’ll be running as a Democrat, but has rebuffed invitations to join the Party time and again. He’ll be running as an independent in 2018.

And all the while, as he smiles and nods and plays the part of a kindly old Mr. Rogers, the splintered fragments of Bernie or Bust have been slowly recollecting into razors. #WeWillReplaceYou? Brand New Congress? Arbitrary purity standards to enforce mandatorily on Democratic candidates? Where does it end?

It has to be understood that the radical left hates Democrats far more than they hate Republicans.

Policies and plans don’t enter into the equation in the slightest regard. Even self-interest, or goodwill towards their fellow man, is not enough to change their minds. We have seen this time and time again since Ralph Nader cost us the 2000 election.

During wildfire season, you will sometimes encounter blazes so huge that no amount of water dumped can possibly hope to drench them. Because of the sheer amount of flammable material in its path, the fire will burn and burn until there is nothing left to burn.

For this reason, firefighters will sometimes employ a technique to put it out called a backfire. This term refers to a fire set intentionally to arrest the progress of an approaching fire by creating a burned area in its path, thus depriving the fire of fuel. While the two fires battle, the firefighters come in from behind and mop up from the other side.

It is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that the opposition has used the Sanders wing of the party as a backfire, in the hopes of smothering the #BlueWave that started building in November.

Once again, we are going to desperately implore these people- our ideological brethren!- to desist from the destructive course of action we have started on the road toward when we threw Al Franken under the bus, on their insistence. If all that it takes to chase Democrats- or anyone- out of the Congress is an unproven accusation, then we have embarked on a very dark course indeed.

“What you saw today was a lynch mob,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Wednesday on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show after at least 35 Democratic Senators called on Franken to step aside. “Let’s not have due process. Let’s not ask anybody any questions. Let’s not have any chance to have a hearing. Let’s just lynch him, because when we get done lynching him, we’ll be so pure.”

Can we not even all agree that it’s bad when Newt Gingrich is speaking on us and making sense? Is this what we want? Has Newt Gingrich become the only voice of reason speaking for Democrats?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then God help us all.

We have something to say to the leadership of the Democratic Party in general. Our trust in you- our faith in you- is the only hope you have of success, next year or any other. It is your job to convince us that our votes will be doing something good.

Your decision to abandon Al Franken in the hopes of winning over lost causes has left your entire base feeling hopeless and left floundering. How do you trust a party that will eat its own, even when they’re really good people? Which way does that leave us to go?

We suggest that you find a way to achieve these goals satisfactorily. While the Democratic Party remains the wholesome institution we have known, we will fight for it. But we will not fight for a shell. Do not be so eager to win the new blood, that you neglect the people who have brought you to the dance. Fix your mistake, and do what it takes to convince Al Franken to stay. This is what Democrats want. And if you break faith with us, we shall not rest.

#HoldTheCenter- Far Left Attacks Franken, Distracts Us From Russiagate.

ABC News reported on Sunday that within the past month, special counsel Robert Mueller requested that the Justice Department turn over a wide array of documents as part of its ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

His team is said to be particularly interested in materials that relate to Trump’s notorious firing of former FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia probe earlier this year, a source who was told about the request informed ABC News.

This is a major step. The Justice Department is getting pretty close to the Oval Office. This will be Mueller’s first records request to the very agency that is overseeing the probe.

Also, Rob Goldstone, the British publicist who helped set up the infamous meeting between members of the Trump campaign Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in June 2016 is ready to meet with Mueller’s office, according to several people familiar with the matter.

Since the indictment of Paul Manafort and the others, the news from Mueller’s office has been coming hot and heavy.

Its onrush has caused great panic and consternation among the Republicans. Most of those with consciences, like Jeff Flake from Arizona, are retiring next year. Flake was caught on a hot mic recently, speaking frankly about the Republican Party and its future. “If we become the party of Trump and Moore, we’re toast”. Well said.

It’s a promising sign that they’re throwing all their bones to us Democrats right away. Donna Brazile, Uranium One, Bernie Sanders’ Medicare for All, etc. They have been really been desperate lately. Ordinarily, they would hold these things in reserve in a vain hope that we’ll avert our gaze long enough to pull something nasty. They’ve had some awful successes that way.

Lack of public expectation was how Scott Walker was able to ravage public schools. He broke the backs of the public worker unions in Wisconsin, using vaguely worded provisions on the infamous backdoor bill known as Act 10. People just were not ready for someone to be that vicious, that fast. It’s the way things are these days, though. Koch Industries has changed the game. We cannot let that happen again.

There’s no end to the challenges we’re up against, and the way it breaks down is very simple. If we keep our focus on the big things, like Russiagate and their evil tax plan, we’re going to take the #BlueWave we’ve been building and knock them flat with it. If we let their distractions take our eyes from the prize, though, it’ll be a different story, a really nasty one.

Right now, the world needs our power combined more than ever before. The stakes could not be higher, and most people know it. It is therefore both inexplicable and unfortunate that the so-called progressive wing of the left decided recently to release a report ripping Democrats up on every level, in a manner that once again reinstates the well-known complaints of Bernie Sanders and his followers from back in 2016.

We do not agree with the Free Press Online report in a number of key regards. We consider their interpretations of these key events to be monstrously distorted. In any case, their report, which they called an Autopsy, came complete with a dead donkey, legs up, on its cover. Not even a Republican could have done as nasty or insulting a job.

Why are Sanders followers so eager to hurt Democrats? They attack us with far more passion and frequency than they do the Republicans, even though we are people who agree with them in terms of the policies they say they hold so dear. It’s reminiscent of Ralph Nader. Perhaps the worst thing is that they’ve been completely silent on Russia. Bernie wouldn’t even vote to sanction Russia.

Excesses of radical leftist rage are what the alt-right is hoping to induce, every time they hack some emails and strategically release them. The Russians are said to have been speechless with joy when Debbie Wassermann-Schultz resigned her position as DNC chairman. To finance, encourage, and incite the radical portions of both sides of the political spectrum is the M.O. of Russian destabilization tactics all through the world.

A radicalized environment is a volatile, polarized environment. You can’t get anything done in it, and that is what the Russians need. They have very little money to work with. Materially they are far weaker. But, if they can tie us all up with inaction, using traitorous Trojan Horses to infect our body politic, they can hope to realign that. All Putin wants, is to make Russia great again. At our expense.

The hostile world power that is Russia has crafted a meticulous plan to realign the European order as subordinate to the interests of the Kremlin. Their biggest obstacle was America. So they hatched a plot to remove us from the playing board. Our nation has been victimized, it’s still going on, and the latest victim of it is Al Franken.

It’s a sad thing, to watch people jump on a bandwagon.

Two prominent progressive groups, Credo Action and Indivisible, called for Franken’s resignation Monday in the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations against him. This is so idiotic, so destructive to the Resistance, that it’s frankly hard to believe it’s unintentional.

If Democrats were to actually resign their offices every time they were slandered by Republicans, we’d have packed our bags and went home a hundred years ago.

Needless to say, these homegrown attacks are coming from organizations who show every sign of extreme bitterness about the primary defeat of Bernie Sanders in 2016, the election that seemingly never ends.

This type of cheap scandal stinks of Ken Starr and Monica Lewinsky. It’s unreal that it’s coming from our own backyard. For such attacks to be coming from people who share our values would once have been unthinkable.

Everyone remembered the Bush and Reagan years. The opposition had the country completely locked down. Bill Clinton was able to take it back by the slimmest of margins. In order to break that stranglehold, the utmost cooperation among the left was necessary. It still is.

When one section of the left starts making up imaginary purity tests to administer to the other, it is all too clear that many have forgotten the importance of the coalition concept. That is why we lost in 2016.

It’s put up or shut up time. The midterm elections are now less than a year away. It has become necessary to take a side. The only options are to stand with the Democrats or stand with Trump, and only one of those has any sanity or decency in it. Taking half measures will mean leaving the status quo intact.

The most important thing for any democracy is that its lines of communication remain healthy and open. When those break down, all that remains is tyranny. We have seen its face. It is eating dinner at the White House. We understand the necessity of cooperation and coalition, and we are willing to open a respectful dialogue with anyone who realizes that we’ve got to find a way out of this mess. We have got to find a way to move forward together. #WeWillEmbraceYou. All we are saying, is give peace a chance.

 

 

 

Democrats Stand Up for Senator Franken- MD DissectFake.

The Republicans are at it again. These people can’t even spell “accountability”.

Minnesota Senator Al Franken was accused of sexual harassment today by conservative talk show host Leann Tweeden, in a particularly transparent and unfair attempt to display false equivalence.

This news comes hot on the heels of Franken delivering up to the alleged child molester and Alabama Senatorial candidate Roy Moore one of the most classic Senatorial flayings of all time.

This is just another case of the rampant “what- aboutism” that the GOP has been trying to distract us with since time immemorial.

The GOP has a clear agenda in this matter. The Roy Moore scandals are a disaster for them, and they know they can’t escape it. The only thing they can do now is to try and get us dirty too.

Al Franken is one of the most effective Senators we have. He has proven clever and reliable at countering that agenda. So now, the dirty trick thugs are being sent out to try and destroy him.

The story broke on Breitbart this morning, but somehow political goblin Roger Stone already knew that Al Franken would be accused of sexual assault hours before the story actually broke.

“Let’s just say Sen. Franken’s time in the barrel is about to come,” Stone told The Daily Caller over text early Thursday morning, hours before Leeann Tweeden came out with her claims.

Stone did not care to elaborate to TheDC exactly how he knew Tweeden was going to come out with her claims. But he did. And that means it was plotted out.

An independent observer will remember that “time in the barrel” is the exact same term he used, right before Wikileaks dumped the Podesta emails that the supporters of Bernie Sanders rioted in the streets over. That’s another time Stone was found boasting off some dirt he criminally acquired. This is his M.O.

Rob Dew of Infowars was quick to hop on the bandwagon right behind Stone.

“I predict @SenFranken will be accused of groping & sexual harassment. He is also very short and an idiot, yet people still like him ,” tweeted Dew.

Note that use of the #metoo hashtag. Conservatives would like nothing better than for women to get the message that their only advocates, the Democrats, only talk a good one and are really no different than the Republicans. Most likely, this is being employed as a way to discredit that burgeoning movement.

Senator Franken, however, must have shocked the cynics good. The statement of apology he released this morning blew the doors off the GOP attempt to ruin him.

“While I don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit as Leeann does, I understand why we need to listen to and believe women’s experiences.
“And the truth is, what people think of me in light of this is far less important than what people think of women who continue to come forward to tell their stories. They deserve to be heard and believed. And they deserve to know that I am their ally and supporter. I have let them down and am committed to making it up to them.”
Compare this with the statements of Roy Moore, when his first victim came forward with her story.When asked about his first accuser, Leigh Corfman, Moore said, “It never happened.”

“I don’t know Miss Corfman from anybody. I never talked to or never had any contact with her. Allegations of sexual misconduct with her are completely false,” Moore told Hannity.

“I never knew this woman. I never met this woman and these charges are politically motivated,” he added. Seven more victims have since come forward, and the number is rising.

Within those two statements, are the difference between the Republicans and us.

There’s no excuse for victim-shaming. That’s not what Senator Franken would want, and that’s far from what we’re after. That said, the timing on this is a gigantic red flag. The benefit to the conservatives Ms. Tweeden has cast her lifetime’s lot with is obvious and huge. It is therefore worth taking a thorough look at the circumstances surrounding this incident.

This is a really unfortunate time for such a rumor to get started. Tensions are already so high. That might lead one to wonder about all the other times this year, that such a revelation was made. Every single time something awful has happened, this entire year, someone has grabbed hold of it, politicized it, and used it as fake news.
Who was responsible for it then? There were an angle and a clear connection. Sooner or later, it always led back to the alt-right propaganda machine. Why should this time be any different?

Leeann Tweeden was a commentator on Sean Hannity’s Fox News opinion show on multiple occasions. Fox’s Red Eye program was graced by her presence as well.

That connection to Hannity would make her statement suspect under any circumstances. Combined with the timing of the release of her “bombshell allegation”, it is positively unbelievable.

The night before she decided to unburden her heart, after all these years, happened to be the day Sean Hannity himself was forced to finally concede that he has been backing up a probable child molester for about the last two weeks.

Currently, Leeann Tweeden is employed as a news anchor for 790 KABC’s morning show, McIntyre in the Morning.  She is a frequent social and political commentator on various conservative television shows. Tweeden was formerly Co-Host of UFC Tonight on Fox Sports.

However, hard times have befallen the radio industry. Cumulus Media, which owns her radio company, is billions of dollars in debt. It’s in the news right now, filing bankruptcy. It is strictly speculative, but it seems to me that cutting a deal with a few billionaires to save your company by doing a favor would be attractive to the owners of the company.
It is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that these factors make Cumulus an untrustworthy source for news.

It’s very close to keeling over entirely, and they syndicate Rush Limbaugh over 33 channels. That combination reeks of desperation.

The national news arm of Cumulus is called Westwood One. It hosts Michael Savage, who is even further out there than Rush.
Since 2009, Savage has been barred from entering the United Kingdom, for “seeking to provoke others to serious criminal acts and fostering hatred.
Before Savage was working for Westwood One, he was working at the Oregon based Talk Radio Network. It was well known as an extremist organization. Its involvement in this affair should be enough at a glance to discredit it based on dubious motive.
In the meantime, Ms. Tweeden graciously accepted the gracious apology Senator Franken offered. It seems that between the two the matter has been addressed and settled. It’s a shame that the opposition isn’t decent enough to simply leave it at that.
The bottom line is this- No way should Al Franken resign. He’s one of the best we’ve got. The thought of getting rid of him makes them chortle with ghoulish glee. That’s why Roger Stone was gloating about it hours before it broke. We refuse to let the GOP convince us to turn on our own.
Our job is to expose lies and bear witness. So please, when you see a story that looks like it could be suspect, let us know. Send it in so we can get to the bottom of it, and send it packing once and for all. Those who seek to educate will always stand as defenders of the truth. That is the purpose of the Millennial Democrats DissectFake project.
