E. Jean Carroll’s Rape Allegation Against Donald Trump Just Got Weirder

While the claims of rape, sexual assault, or something lesser (depending on the interview) against Donald Trump from E. Jean Carroll have largely died down, the story itself has continued to evolve.

The entire ordeal can only be described as bizarre. I wrote a piece yesterday that sought to avoid much editorializing, instead choosing to simply compile many of Jean Carroll’s interviews. Here’s a sampling of that.

The things she’s said in the past week, her demeanor, and how she injected politics at the forefront just doesn’t add up. My colleague Brandon Morse reported today on the fact that her accusation mirrors an episode of Law and Order as well. It’s all becoming absurd.

But just when you thought things were weird enough, things just got a whole lot weirder.

At first, I was skeptical. Is this faked?

Nope, it’s real and here’s the direct link to Facebook’s archive of it (assuming she doesn’t delete it eventually).

So E. Jean Carroll was a massive fan of the show her supposed rapist created and starred in? I’m not sure how else to describe that except as extremely odd, to the point where I don’t believe she would have said that if the story she’s telling today was true. What woman who’s been sexually assaulted likes to watch their rapist on TV? That’s makes no sense at all.

I’m not even sure how to approach this at this allegation at this point.

I don’t want to seem like I’m dismissing any possibility that what she says happened because I can’t claim to have have all the facts. What I can claim is that there is a distinct lack of evidence coupled with some really, really bizarre behavior.

There’s a reason the media are no longer talking about this. Meanwhile, some on the right who immediately latched onto the story as credible should probably address their statements at some point. They know who they are.

Why Silicon Valley Tech Giants May Truly Believe They’re Not Being Biased When They Clearly Are

Westlake Legal Group socialmedia-620x331 Why Silicon Valley Tech Giants May Truly Believe They’re Not Being Biased When They Clearly Are youtube vijaya gadde twitter Technology Silicon Valley Jack Dorsey Google Front Page Stories Featured Story facebook Culture California bias Abuse of Power

We know that Silicon Valley is filthy with politically biased people who’ve been brought to radical forms of their leftist ideological positions thanks to a well-maintained bubble. Any position, thought, or fact-based reasoning that runs against the hard left hive mind is immediately punished and/or cast out.

You can ask James Damore about that.

Major companies like Google, Twitter, and Facebook have been demonstrating their bias left and right. To anyone paying attention, it’s not a mystery that if you lean to the right, or have a right-leaning opinion on a specific subject if you say it loud enough you might find yourself on the business end of Silicon Valley’s ire.

Live Action simply expressed pro-life views and Pinterest labeled them as “porn” so that they wouldn’t show up in feeds. It was unearthed recently that Google employees were trying to find ways to restrict sitings of figures like Dennis Prager and Ben Shapiro because they were Nazis guiding others on the path to Nazism, both of whom, mind you, are orthodox Jews.

To be sure, these are radical positions and radical actions to take on Silicon Valley’s part, but the frightening thing is that I’m not entirely sure they understand that. In fact, based on what I’ve seen and heard from them, they truly believe that their positions aren’t at all extreme and that their actions do reflect neutral stances.

In fact, YouTube just released a tweet essentially claiming that they are politically neutral right after James O’Keefe exposed Google for taking ideological stances within their business.

The ratio they are currently receiving for this tweet is nothing short of brutal.

We see this attitude being struck by industry heads and employees constantly, even in front of Congress where they deny taking any stances when it comes to how they conduct business, despite the deluge of evidence that they are.

You’re probably stunned that they could lie this blatantly to the people, and are feeling pretty insulted that they think you’re that stupid. Maybe some of them truly do think that, but I have to wonder if they actually don’t understand the extreme positions they have found themselves in ideologically.

I’m perfectly willing to believe this may be the case due to an interview I watched on the Joe Rogan Experience, where Tim Pool and Joe Rogan are essentially confronting Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Twitter “Trust and Safety” Lead Vijaya Gadde.

I can’t give you a specific quote within this back and forth because this is a 20-minute debate where every sentence said holds weight, but the summary is that despite Rogan and Pool trying to show Gadde how the rules they’ve created — this conversation specifically revolves around Twitter’s rules around interactions with transgendered people — were ideologically bent, neither Gadde or Dorsey seemed to be able to wrap their heads around their own bias.

As far as Gadde was concerned, they truly were doing the right thing by silencing and punishing people for taking a position that is ideologically different from the left’s.

I advise you to take a moment to watch this exchange, as it’s incredibly eye-opening.

Again, I don’t want to make this interaction a blanket statement on all of Silicon Valley’s movers and shakers. I think, however, it is a solid look at the lens through which they view the world.

For instance, Gadde can be ridiculed for a lot of things that she said during her interaction with Pool and Rogan, but there were times when it looked like she was being introduced to a completely foreign concept that she couldn’t quite wrap her head around in the moment.

We should consider the idea that the ideological bubble in which these tech giants live is so thick that they don’t understand or even see what’s right in front of their faces.

Their false sense of morality, fostered by their immediate peers and social structure, is a result of truly not knowing any better due to the fact that any other kind of ideological standpoint is being diligently kept out. It’s kept out because the culture demands to look at ideological stances outside of the body politic as something dangerous. This fuels a perpetual cycle and creates something akin to self-induced brainwashing.

This theory would explain why YouTube can make statements that are blatantly false with all seriousness.

I could be wrong and the people silencing, deplatforming, and punishing others for their viewpoints are truly that horrible. They may be that childish and married to their ignorance purely out of spite for those who tell them they’re wrong. However, based on what I’ve seen and heard, I’m not 100 percent certain of that.

Dan Crenshaw Puts Google Reps Through the Ringer Over Calling People Like Ben Shapiro Nazis

On Tuesday I covered how leaked documents showed an email thread within Google staff calling people such as Dennis Prager and Ben Shapiro Nazis, and brainstorming ways to limit their exposure on their platforms.

(READ: Leaked Document Shows Google Employees Labeling Ben Shapiro, Prager U, And More As Nazis)

The email only proved a longstanding accusation against Google that it was biased against conservatives, and even gave us a look into just how extreme the ideological leanings at Google were.

Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw also found this behavior from Google to be beyond ridiculous, and possibly even dangerous. During a US Homeland Security Hearing, Crenshaw had Derek Slater, Google’s Global Director of Information Policy, in the hot seat and the Texas representative unleashed the beast.

“Two of these people are Jewish – very religious Jews – and you think they’re Nazis. It begs the question, what kind of education do people at Google have that they think religious Jews are Nazis?” asked Crenshaw.

Crenshaw noted that three of these had family members killed in the Holocaust and that Shapiro is the number one target of the alt-right.

“And yet you people operate off the premise that he’s a Nazi,” said Crenshaw. “It’s pretty disturbing.”

Crenshaw then asked Slater if Google has a definition of hate speech, which Slater obliged by giving him a long-winded definition. Crenshaw cut him off after a time.

“Do you have an example of Ben Shapiro, or Jordan Peterson, or Dennis Prager engaging in hate speech?” asked Crenshaw. “Do you have one example off the top of your head?”

Slater didn’t give him a yes or no answer, and instead cited some of their rules. Crenshaw, likely understanding he wasn’t going to get an answer, moved on. He noted that we have a culture where Nazism is so hated that we allow phrases like “punch a Nazi” to be a good premise to operate off of, and given that fact, one of the largest social media companies in the world labeling people as Nazis is implying that it’s okay to use violence against them.

“What you’re doing is wholly irresponsible,” said Crenshaw.

Andy Ngo to CNN: Why Won’t You Publish Graphic Photos of Terrorist Victims Like You Did the Rio Grande Migrants?

Migrant families cross the Rio Grande to get illegally across the border into the US, to turn themselves in to authorities and ask for asylum, next to the Paso del Norte international bridge, near El Paso, TX, Friday, May 31, 2019. (AP Photo/Christian Torrez)

Red State‘s Brandon Morse wrote a powerful piece this morning about the horrifying photo revealed Tuesday of a migrant father and his young daughter who were found dead after trying unsuccessfully to cross the Rio Grande.

CNN was among a number of news outlets that made the decision to publish the disturbing image of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and 23-month-old Valeria:

As Brandon noted in his post, the photo, while utterly heartbreaking and tragic, was in turn being shared by Democrats not so much to push for change, but instead for blatantly political reasons:

The obvious answer is that they’re going to sell the idea to the American people that this is all President Donald Trump’s fault for being so racist as to not let people who want into the United States in. This will then lead to the softening of hearts, which will then allow Democrats to obtain more power in elections and pass whatever they please, such as open borders.

It should be remembered that Trump’s approval took a dip when the story of children being separated at the border hit. Democrats are counting on your emotional reaction to this photo to do the same just in time to make this a 2020 election issue.

The Usual Suspects are also using the image to paint a false narrative that the Trump administration is deliberately “punishing” migrant kids and their families at the border, which I wrote about at length at Legal Insurrection earlier today.

Because CNN and other media organizations decided to publish the photo, Quillette editor and journalist Andy Ngo had some questions for what their standards were for using photos of deceased persons in their reporting:

These are very important questions worth asking, because there’s been a debate going on about the use of these types of images in reporting since 9/11 – if not before. In the vast majority of cases where the media have either photos or videos of dead victims (or both), they choose not to publish them or air them out of what they say is respect for the victims themselves and their families.

Plus, the gruesome images are shocking in nature and are not something many Americans want to see when they open their newspapers, scroll through their social media feeds, or turn on the news.

In this case, many outlets decided to run the image rather than withholding. Considering how the mainstream media has continuously parroted the left’s talking points on immigration from day one, only one conclusion can be drawn as to why the change: The reasons Brandon mentioned above for Democrats sharing the image are the same for journalists, too. Because Democrats have a lot of allies in the press who are more than willing to do their bidding for them.

As of this writing, CNN hasn’t responded to Ngo’s questions. It’s a safe bet to say they’re probably not going to, either.

Democrats and Media Members Get Dragged for Political Flip-Flopping on Border Crisis

A strange thing has started happening over the past few weeks. Democrats, leftist media members, and some anti-Trumpers have suddenly discovered there is indeed a crisis on the border. You see, Donald Trump wasn’t in fact “manufacturing” a crisis back in Feb. when he declared a national emergency after an influx of family units started overwhelming the Border Patrol.

These flip-flops are made all the more stark by the commentary that was coming from these same figures just 3-6 months ago in regards to the situation at the southern border.

While they’d like everyone to forget their past words and hypocrisy, we haven’t and neither have a lot of people on the right. What follows is a sampling of some of the things CNN figures, Democrat politicians, Never Trump ambassadors, and editorial columnists across the political sphere were proclaiming just a short time back.

(Credit to our sister site Twitchy for helping compile a lot of these tweets.)

Here’s GOP Rep. Chip Roy quoting Democratic leadership.

Reading these is absolutely mind-numbing. All the claims that the President was lying, that there was no crisis, etc. while CBP themselves were saying they were at their breaking point. It’s political manipulation at a level that just makes you feel gross for even witnessing.

Don’t forget Jim Acosta’s famous border live hit either.

Here was Never Trump savior Evan McMullin doing what he does as well.

Almost all of these comments came only four to five months ago.

Now, some dishonest brokers may try to claim that things are different today. That there was no emergency at the border 4-5 months ago but that there is today. That’s complete nonsense. We were seeing spikes of over 70,000 crossing a month as far back as late 2018, before most of these dismissive statements were made. The total numbers were also not the only issue. CBP was not setup to handle the amount of family units that were crossing illegally. That exacerbated an already bad situation.

Meanwhile, Democrats, media members, and a lot of anti-Trump figures on the right gnashed their teeth over the suggestion we actually do something about the situation that was presenting itself. That partisanship wasn’t just politically disgusting, it has cost people their lives.

Of course, this transformation in disposition on the left (and with some on the right) didn’t come from nowhere. It’s only now happening because they have sensed the political winds shift. They know they can’t deny reality anymore so they are looking to seize the high ground again, this time by admitting there’s a crisis while seeking to blame it on Donald Trump. That’d be the very same Donald Trump who asked Democrats many months ago to provide more funding, beds, facilities, and judges to help with handling illegal immigrants. The refused, sending a message to Central American countries that it was open season to head to the U.S. and that’s led us to the horrible situation we are in today.

As a result, untold numbers of people have died, been sexually assaulted, or been injured on a dangerous journey never should have made. All because open borders advocates incentivized illegal crossings by stonewalling any attempts to fix the issue. This is on them and their sudden flip-flop won’t absolve them of their words and deeds.

Captain of US Women’s Soccer Team: ‘I’m Not Going to the F**king White House’ If Team Wins World Cup

Co-captain of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team Megan Rapinoe may be better known for her hatred of President Trump than for soccer. In a recent interview with soccer magazine Eight by Eight, she was asked, if her team wins the World Cup and receives an invitation to the White House, would she be “excited” to go.

She responded, “I’m not going to the f*****g White House.”No. I’m not going to the White House. We’re not gonna be invited. I doubt it…[Trump] tries to avoid inviting a team that might decline. Or, like he did when the Warriors turned him down, he’ll claim they hadn’t been invited in the first place.”

(Scroll down for Trump’s response.)

Rapinoe is a huge fan of Colin Kapernick and began kneeling during the national anthem in the fall of 2016 to protest police brutality against blacks. When the U.S. Soccer Federation adopted a policy which required players to “stand and honor” the flag, she began to stand. But she wants you to know that she “refuses to sing the “Star Spangled Banner” or put her hand over her heart during it.”

When Rapinoe began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016, she wrote:

I haven’t experienced over-policing, racial profiling, police brutality or the sight of a family member’s body lying dead in the street. But I cannot stand idly by while there are people in this country who have had to deal with that kind of heartache.

There is no perfect way to protest. I know that nothing I do will take away the pain of those families. But I feel in my heart it is right to continue to kneel during the national anthem, and I will do whatever I can to be part of the solution.

She said that it was “because of her utmost respect for the flag and the promise it represents” that she “took a knee.”

“When I take a knee, I am facing the flag with my full body, staring straight into the heart of our country’s ultimate symbol of freedom — because I believe it is my responsibility, just as it is yours, to ensure that freedom is afforded to everyone in this country.”

Three years later, little has changed.

According to The Washington Post, Rapinoe recently said that “just the fact that someone like her can play her way onto the team amounts to “kind of a good ‘F you’ to … the administration.”

I don’t understand the connection between the two, but that’s alright.

She also describes herself as “a walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration” because of “everything I stand for.”

It’s worth noting that Rapinoe began her protests in September 2016, two months before Trump won the presidency.

What was it again that goeth before a fall?

Clint Eastwood Defies Film Boycott Of Georgia (Because Of Course He Does)

Westlake Legal Group Clint-Eastwood-620x827 Clint Eastwood Defies Film Boycott Of Georgia (Because Of Course He Does) Hollywood boycott Georgia Front Page Stories fetal heartbeat bill Featured Story Clint Eastwood Abortion

Clint Eastwood (Image: Wikimedia Commons)

In a brain twisting bit of irony, Hollywood icon and legend Clint Eastwood will defy other Hollywood actors’ (but let’s face it, none that even approach his stature in talent or reputation) attempted boycott of Georgia over recent pro-life legislation the state passed to make a film that will likely portray pro-lifers as less than sympathetic.

I know. Wrap your head around it.

Eastwood, a filmmaker known for authenticity in his work, frankly had no better option than Georgia to make his film since its subject matter deals with the media frenzy accompanying the 1996 Olympic games bombing in Atlanta; a frenzy that helped point the finger at the wrong man, security guard Richard Jewell.

(Although I like to think Eastwood would have chosen Georgia for his film anyway because he shoots where he damn well wants to shoot. *spits tobacco*)

Clint Eastwood’s next film “Richard Jewell” is listed among the Georgia Film Commission’s projects set to shoot in the state this summer — despite the calls for a boycott of production in Georgia over the state’s new anti-abortion “heartbeat” law.

Previously titled “The Ballad of Richard Jewell,” the film tells the true story of a security guard who was falsely accused in the bombing that took place at Atlanta’s Centennial Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics. Paul Walter Hauser plays Jewell alongside a cast that includes Sam Rockwell, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde and Kathy Bates.

That cast is a little interesting as more than one of them have been known to speak out about political and policy issues on their respective social media accounts (ahem, *cough* Rockwell and Wilde).

But the actors aren’t alone. The Wrap notes Warner Bros., which will be releasing Eastwood’s film, is under the umbrella of WarnerMedia, who said in May they were watching (Big Brother-style I guess) the state and the movement of the Heartbeat Bill legislation and would “reconsider” filming in Georgia if law takes effect next year.

We’ll give you a minute to roll your eyes.

“We operate and produce work in many states and within several countries at any given time and while that doesn’t mean we agree with every position taken by a state or country and their leaders, we do respect due process,” the company said in a statement. “We will watch the situation closely and if the new law holds we will reconsider Georgia as the home to any new productions. As is always the case, we will work closely with our production partners and talent to determine how and where to shoot any given project.”

My, how bravely non-committal.

There’s a lesson here for Hollywood types: hang with the Eastwoods, not the Milanos. You won’t have to make statements you have no intention of living up to or take stances you’ll have to walk back later because Eastwoods don’t bully and they don’t deal in intimidations and threats. They just get the job done.

And they don’t feel compelled to explain themselves to the Milanos of the world.

Liberal Tears Flow After Fraudster Michael Avenatti Calls a Senator a “Fraud” and Demands Ben Shapiro Debate Him

Liberal icon and media hero (but I repeat myself) Michael Avenatti is having a no good, very bad, horrible week.

On Monday, porn star Stormy Daniels’s former lawyer weighed in on Twitter about the upcoming Maine Senate race between incumbent Sen. Susan Collins (R) and her newly-announced Democratic challenger Sara Gideon (D). Here’s what the disgraced lawyer had to say:

Gideon has tweeted out a list of endorsements she has received so far, but for some strange reason Avenatti’s endorsement is not noted on the list.

In any event, after Avenatti called Collins a “fraud” – presumably over her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court – NRSC adviser Matt Whitlock slid into the comments section of the tweet to point out the pot, kettle, black nature of Avenatti’s accusation (via Twitchy):

Whitlock, in fact, absolutely roasted Avenatti over and over again:

Unfortunately for Avenatti (but fortunately for us), things only got worse for him the next day.

On Tuesday afternoon, he tweeted this question about “The View”‘s Meghan McCain after she pushed back on AOC’s absurd claim that border detention facilities are like Nazi concentration camps:

As you can imagine, it did not go well. Avenatti took particular issue with Ben Shapiro’s criticism, and challenged him to a debate:

The responses were hilarious:

As Hot Air‘s John Sexton documented here, the two went back and forth for a bit afterwards but it’s not clear whether or not an actual debate will take place.

My personal view is that Shapiro should not waste his valuable time. For reasons Whitlock outlined and more, Avenatti is not worth it. He’s a dishonest blowhard, an exploiter of women, and a fraud who will say and do anything for attention, fame, and money – even and especially at the expense of the truth.

Here’s How Roy Moore Is Polling in the Alabama GOP Senate Primary

Roy Moore is back. He’s declared himself a candidate for the 2020 Republican Senate primary in Alabama for reasons only known to himself.

Moore was, of course, savaged in 2017 after forty-year-old allegations that he dated underage girls surfaced. Most of the allegations were more creepy than illegal (i.e. it’s not illegal for a 30-year-old to date a 17-year-old) but one involving a 14-year-old ended up being the biggest factor in his downfall. There was a later accusation of sexual assault that appeared at the behest of grifter lawyer Gloria Allred, but that one was best left out of the equation.

With Moore back on the scene, some conservatives lashed out at him for putting a solidly red seat in jeopardy once again. Those included the President’s son.

Now, we’ve got our first polling of the primary race and here’s how Moore is faring.

Moore is clocking in a distant 3rd with coaching legend Tommy Tuberville at the top. Needless to say, if Tuberville gets the nomination, he’s going to walk away from Doug Jones and win.

Bradly Byrne, a current Congressional Representative, will probably get a lot of establishment support. Arnold Mooney is currently a fringe candidate but has picked up some high profile endorsements from people like Mark Levin. The key here is that Mitch McConnell needs to not try to pick a winner by destroying other viable, conservative candidates. Stay out of it and you won’t end up with a Strange vs. Moore scenario again.

Here’s my opinion on this. Roy Moore is a clownish figure who constantly steps on his own feet and he has no business being the nominee at this point. While he may have done some good things as a judge in past decades, this Senate seat is not about him and he’s not entitled to it. The point is to win the election, not to make sure Roy Moore is given a chance at vengeance.

Alabama will have to decide for themselves, but with a tough Senate map in 2020, every seat counts. That means losing a Republican seat in deep red Alabama is simply not an option. For the moment, it looks like Alabama voters aren’t game for a do-over with Roy Moore and that’s probably a smart decision.

The next two days will be yuge for the 20+ Democrats who are running for president as the first round of pre-primary debates will be held tonight and tomorrow night in Miami.

Red State‘s Bonchie wrote earlier this week about how Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made it clear that votes on proposed legislation would not be delayed in spite of the fact that several Senators will be on the presidential debate stage. Per The Hill:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday dismissed a call by Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to delay passage of a mammoth defense bill until after the Democratic presidential debates so the entire chamber can vote on an Iran amendment.

McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor, brushed off the request from Schumer, saying Democrats missing the votes in order to take part in the Democratic presidential debates were prioritizing trying to win “the favor of the resistance.”

“I was incredulous to hear the Democratic leader call yesterday to postpone moving forward with the NDAA,” McConnell said, referring to the National Defense Authorization Act. “Apparently some of our Democratic friends need to go hit the presidential campaign trail. They can’t be here because they have to go campaign.”

As Bonchie noted in his post, McConnell’s decision to not delay votes was not just about needling the presidential candidates who were also members of the Senate but also because, you know, actual work needed to get done:

While Cocaine Mitch probably had sticking it to these do-nothing Democrats in the back of his mind, the truth is that remaining in session is absolutely crucial right now. They were already scheduled to be off the first week of July. While most of us get a single day off (and some no day off), Congress gets the entire week for some reason.

That means that there’s no way to take Thursday and Friday off, as working on immigration issues is vital right now. Trump agreed to a two-week delay in a major ICE deportation operation after Pelosi requested it. While a deal is unlikely, you can’t make an attempt at one if you take that entire two weeks off.

For good measure, though, the MccConnell campaign wished the candidates good luck and tweaked them with some pre-debate prep of their own:

As I’ve said before, Cocaine Mitch’s troll game is strong…
