Snarky Masked Reporter Who Kayleigh McEnany Shredded This Afternoon Was Fired From Previous Job Over Sexual Misconduct Allegation

May 27, 2020

Some people are better off hiding behind a mask.

Such is the case with Ryan Lizza, chief Washington correspondent for Politico, and CNN political analyst, who attempted to take on the diminutive in stature, but deadly in her responses, White House Press Secretary Kaleigh McEnany.

The masked Ryan Lizza asked McEnany what was possibly the most ignorant question of the day, “By election day, what does the White House view as the number of dead Americans where you can say we successfully defeated this pandemic?”

Kaleigh McEnany responded by saying that although one death is too many, “We never want to see a single individual lose their life.” She continued, by explaining that to be significantly under the 2.2 million deaths experts predicted the Wuhan coronavirus would cause in America if we didn’t shut down the economy, is an achievement.

“But when the voters go to the polls in November, and they want to judge this president on his response this pandemic, what is the number that Americans should tolerate, where they can argue that ‘yes,’ he successfully controlled this pandemic.”

“I think that you’re asking the wrong question,” McEnany responded.

Lizza abruptly interrupted her, telling her, “Please don’t tell me I asked the wrong question!”

Ryan Lizza was fired from his previous job as a reporter for the New Yorker over allegations of sexual misconduct. He was also released from his contract with CNN, who in 2018 rehired Lizza. The few people who watch CNN, the low-ratings cable network channel, are fully aware that CNN hosts are not known for their moral character.

In December 2017, The Daily Beast reported that The New Yorker let go of its star reporter Ryan Lizza amid allegations of sexual misconduct, the magazine.

“The New Yorker recently learned that Ryan Lizza engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct. We have reviewed the matter and, as a result, have severed ties with Lizza,” a spokesperson for the magazine said. “Due to a request for privacy, we are not commenting further.”

Lizza denied the claims.

Wigdor LLP, the law firm representing Lizza’s accuser, issued a statement in response: “In no way did Mr. Lizza’s misconduct constitute a ‘respectful relationship’ as he has now tried to characterize it. Our client reported Mr. Lizza’s actions to ensure that he would be held accountable and in the hope that by coming forward she would help other potential victims.”

 

‘SQUAD’ MEMBER AYANNA PRESSLEY TO INTRODUCE IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION AGAINST KAVANAUGH

'Squad' Member Ayanna Pressley To Introduce Impeachment Resolution Against Kavanaugh

Despite latest debunked accusation, freshman congresswoman determined to unseat Supreme Court Justice

  – SEPTEMBER 17, 2019

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), a member of the “Squad” of far-left freshmen congresswomen, will introduce a resolution calling for an impeachment inquiry of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh following a debunked New York Times hit piece against him alleging sexual misconduct.

“I believe Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors,” Pressley said in a statement, reported WBUR.

“Sexual predators do not deserve a seat on the nation’s highest court and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process set a dangerous precedent,” she said. “We must demand justice for survivors and hold Kavanaugh accountable for his actions.”

Pressley plans to introduce the resolution even after the Times issued a major correction noting the accuser of the alleged misconduct claims she has no memory of the alleged incident even taking place, and refused to be interviewed.

The Squad’s leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) also called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment on Twitter before the NYT’s clarification, deleted her post following the clarification, then curiously, reposted her impeachment call on Monday.

The latest accusation against Kavanaugh has been outright debunked. So why is the left still moving forward with efforts to remove Kavanaugh?

The answer is because their aim has always been about preventing Kavanaugh from serving in the court due to their belief that he will attempt to outlaw abortion and repeal Roe v Wade.

The lawyer of Kavanaugh’s original accuser Christine Blasey-Ford said just weeks ago that her client’s motivation to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct was rooted in her desire to protect abortion.

Pressley’s impeachment resolution has virtually no chance of passing, as it requires a majority of the House and two-thirds of the Republican-led Senate to unseat Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court.

HIDE YOUR CHILDREN: Sexual Predator Anthony Weiner Released From Federal Prison

 

Disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner has been released from prison and placed in a residential re-entry facility. He had been sentenced to 21 months in prison for sending sexually explicit messages to a minor.

Weiner had been sending graphic and sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old North Carolina girl in 2017.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons has Weiner listed as being in the custody of a Residential Re-entry Management office in Brooklyn, New York, according to a report from the Associated Press.

The investigation into his chats with the girl led to a laptop being seized from the home Weiner shared with his wife Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton. Two weeks before the election, FBI Director James Comey announced that emails related to the candidate’s private email server may have been found on a laptop used by both Weiner and Abedin, prompting the agency to reopen their probe into the scandal.

Weiner’s predatory messages to the teen were not his first sex scandal.

In 2011, Weiner tweeted a photo of his crotch, which lead to his resignation from Congress.

During his run for mayor of New York, Weiner’s weiner made headlines once again after porn star Sydney Leathers went to the media with their explicit chats.

During the 2016 election season, the New York Post obtained new graphic chats between Weiner and a “busty brunette,” including a photo of his crotch — taken with his five-year-old son sleeping in the bed in the background.

Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin has worked closely with Clinton since the 1990s, during Bill Clinton’s presidency. She has been a top aide to the former First Lady ever since.

Weiner’s sexual scandals were chronicled in a now-popular documentary called Weiner, in which Abedin’s contempt for him was impossible to miss.

#MeToo: Admitted Sexual Predator Cory Booker Joins Presidential Race

Will the FBI investigate his admitted sexual misconduct?

By Peter D’Abrosca

Screen Shot 2019-02-01 at 10.55.27 AM

A heterosexual U.S. Senator from New Jersey announced Friday morning that he will join the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential field.

“In America, we have a common pain,” said a video posted to Twitter by Sen. Cory Booker. “But what we’re lacking is a sense of common purpose. I grew up knowing that the only way we can make change is when people come

The announcement was typical of a Democrat. The main message is this: America is a fundamentally bad place and I will fix it. It is reminiscent of the eight year message of do-nothing President Barack Obama.

Booker, though, has some problems of his own to contend with. Mainly, he admitted to sexual misconduct with a teenaged girl in an op-ed he wrote in Stanford University’s newspaper.

Big League Politics reported:

New Jersey Senator who has been sharply critical of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh wrote a 1992 column in which he bragged about groping a high school friend.

“As we fumbled upon the bed, I remember debating my next ‘move’ as if it were a chess game,” said Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker in the column. “With the ‘Top Gun’ slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast. After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my ‘mark.’”

Booker admittedly ignored his female friend’s rejection before moving forward in his column called “So Much for Stealing Second.” Apparently “no” means “yes” in Booker’s mind.

Booker’s column surfaced while he, playing the role of male feminist, grilled Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for unprovable allegations of sexual assault during Kavanaugh’s September confirmation hearing.

Booker enters an already-crowded field which includes Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kristen Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro, among other lesser-known candidates. Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has teased an independent run.

Disgraced NY AG used campaign cash to defend against sex abuse claims

screen shot 2019-01-30 at 10.57.48 am

Former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman used funds from his reelection campaign to pay for his legal defense during an investigation into allegations he slapped, choked, and otherwise abused multiple women.

Schneiderman, who portrayed himself as a champion for women and gallant #MeToo supporter while in office, resigned suddenly last May, hours after reports from four women claiming he’d slapped or choked them surfaced in a New Yorker article. It was the ultimate irony for the state AG, who had filed a lawsuit seeking better compensation for the women accusing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and misconduct earlier that year.

Using campaign funds to pay for legal defense does not break any rules in New York, as long as it involves matters related to an elected official’s duties. Responses to the revelations – reported by AP, based on Schneiderman’s own campaign finance reports – have not been kind to the fallen prosecutor.

“What a luxury to be able to assault women who donated to your campaign and then use the money to defend yourself,” said Michelle Manning Barish, a Democratic activist who accused Schneiderman of abusing her while they were dating in 2013. She was horrified to find out he’d paid for his legal defense out of the contributions of women like her, saying: “That money was given in good faith by donors who expected Mr. Schneiderman to help women.”

screen shot 2019-01-30 at 11.00.15 am

Schneiderman made his last payment to law firm Clayman & Rosenberg LLP in December, for a total of $339,710, a month after a special prosecutor closed the investigation without filing charges. The ex-AG did release a somewhat equivocal statement afterward, declaring he accepted “full responsibility for my conduct in my relationships with my accusers, and for the impact it had on them.”

One could say Schneiderman got his money’s worth, dodging charges for a sum amounting to less than half his re-election committee’s spending in the eight months following his resignation. He also continued to rent a Manhattan office and pay employee wages.

“Once the committee has honored all its commitments, the remaining funds will be donated to worthy and appropriate causes, consistent with the law,” a spokeswoman for Schneiderman said. The committee did refund about $1.5 million in contributions, but still has about $6.5 million in the bank. Barish called on donors to demand that the rest is given to charities for battered women and abuse survivors.

Spending campaign cash on legal defense is almost an institution in New York politics. Both former State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R) and former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D) spent millions of campaign dollars fighting corruption charges in recent years, though they were both eventually convicted.

“The system is a scandal,” said Blair Horner, executive director of the New York Public Interest Research Group.

#MeToo Comes For Former MSNBC Host Touré

 Toure takes part in SiriusXM's 'Town Hall' with L.A. Reid at the SiriusXM Studios on February 1, 2016 in New York City.

“You can’t be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators”

By PAUL BOIS

The #MeToo movement has come for music journalist and former MSNBC host Touré, who is alleged to have sexually harassed one of his colleagues in 2017.

According to Essence, the accusation of sexual harassment erupted against the famed journalist this week when he appeared on the “The Clubhouse with Mouse Jones” podcast to discuss disgraced singer R. Kelly in wake of the Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly that profiled several young women who claim to have been abused by the singer.

When the show advertised the episode featuring Touré on Instagram, a comment appeared from a make-up artist named “Dani,” who alleged that the former MSNBC host sexually harassed her while working with him on a People/Entertainment Weekly show in 2017. “He couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f–k me,” she said in the post.

Dani said that Touré’s sexual harassment disturbed her so much that she would have crew members in the room with them as she would prepare the makeup. She eventually quit and reported his behavior to human resources. She claims that he was fired; Touré’s reps claim that her agreement had expired.

Speaking with ESSENCE, Dani said that she worked with him in most of 2017 before leaving in October of that year, which was right around the time that sexual misconduct allegations broke against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Touré also allegedly apologized to her in several Instagram messages she shared with the outlet. As to why she reported him to HR after she quit, Dani says that she could not stomach seeing him go on talk shows to discuss the allegations against Weinstein.

“He went on Hot97 to talk about Harvey Weinstein (after he apologized). I accepted his apology and was ok to move on but, you can’t be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators,” she said. “When I saw him going around as R. Kelly’s docuseries spokesman to different radio stations, the lies had to stop. I’ve worked with Mouse Jones before and wanted him to know the truth.”

In a statement released through his rep, the former MSNBC host said that he regularly engaged in “edgy, crass banter” and is sorry for making Dani feel uncomfortable.

“On the show, our team, including myself, engaged in edgy, crass banter, that at the time I did not think was offensive for our tight-knit group,” the statement said. “I am sorry for my language and for making her feel uncomfortable in any way. As a lead on the show, I should have refrained from this behavior. I have learned and grown from this experience.”

Germany: Number of firearms licences more than doubles during the migrant crisis

Germany is seeing a large surge in the number of basic firearm licences, Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND) reports.

While in 2014 there were 261,332 basic firearm licences, this number has grown to 600,000 this year. This equals an increase of 130 per cent.

According to RND feelings of insecurity are an important factor for the increase of the licences. Since the start of the migrant crisis in 2015, Germany has seen several terror attacks on festivals, trains and a Christmas market.

“We must be careful not to get American conditions in Germany,” the deputy chairman of police union (GdP) said. “There is a danger that weapons will not be used properly and that their owners will endanger themselves.”

A member of the far-left Green party warns of escalating conflicts:

“More private weapons do not create more security,” said Irene Mihalic, the Green parliamentary group’s spokeswoman for internal affairs. “On the contrary, they have the potential to escalate conflicts into violence.”

Since 2015 Merkel ‘invited’ around 1.5 million migrants from the Middle East and Africa into Germany. It has led to scores of murders, rapes and terror attacks.

1,400 ‘No-Go’ Zones For UK Ambulances, Attacks on EMTs Skyrocket

See the source image

By Dan Lyman

Over 1,400 locations across England have been red-flagged as ‘no-go’ zones for ambulances without police escort, as the rate of violent attacks on paramedics has risen to a staggering eight per day, according to UK media.

More than 2,800 emergency medical personnel were attacked while on duty in 2017, up 36 percent in the last five years, latest data reveals.

“Paramedics are being stabbed, throttled, and sexually assaulted as shameful new figures show assaults on crew members have risen by a third,” the Mirror reports.

See the source image

“About eight serious attacks a day take place on NHS ambulance crews and more than 1,400 homes in England are now red-flagged as ‘no-go’ areas without police protection.”

A list of injuries suffered by paramedics in London includes dislocations, fractures, asphyxiation, severe burns, concussions, and even spinal cord damage.

Union leaders are blaming politicians for cutbacks in funding, leading to a severe shortage of personnel, as well as police support.

“These terrifying figures underline that ambulance workers, along with all those who work in the emergency services, are forced to work under an increased threat of violence,” said GMB union national secretary Rehana Azam.

“Cuts in funding mean our ambulance workers are more likely to be working alone. Cuts to police services mean back-up isn’t always there.”

Incredibly, the vast majority of perpetrators reportedly do not face legal consequences for assaults upon EMTs.

The crisis facing British emergency services highlights the effects mass immigration can have upon safety, security, and infrastructure as crime continues to rise while the government’s capacity to properly enforce the law and tend to the needs of its citizens diminishes.

This is what you call “must-see TV.”
Democrat Party Chairman Tom Perez went on with Jake Tapper on CNN on Sunday.

Perez twisted himself into a pretzel trying to defend the party’s Deputy Chairman Keith Ellison over the current abuse allegations against him.

At one point Jake Tapper asked Perez if the victim Karen Monahan is believable.   Perez couldn’t give a clear answer.  It was awkward.

Blackface only for liberals? NBC cancels Megyn Kelly’s show amid uproar about double standards

Blackface only for liberals? NBC cancels Megyn Kelly’s show amid uproar about double standards

NBC’s ‘Today’ show with Megyn Kelly is on the way out, making her departure from the network official. But the reason for her exit – comments she made about ‘blackface’ costumes – has come under scrutiny.

NBC has said it is canceling ‘Megyn Kelly Today’ and will replace her show with ‘Today’ anchors.

The ‘Today’ show – which Kelly co-hosts – disclosed on Friday that their soon-to-be ex-colleague “is in talks with the network about her imminent departure.”

Today show correspondent Morgan Radford stressed that the “exact details” of the negotiations remain unclear. Kelly was more than a year into a three-year, $69 million contract with NBC.

Her departure comes just days after the host made what many described as insensitive and racist comments about ‘blackface’.

“You truly do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween,” she said during her show on Tuesday. She added that when she was growing up, wearing blackface was acceptable “as long as you were dressing like a character.”

Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and made an on-air apology on Wednesday at the start of her program. She did not appear on air on Thursday – sparking reports that she was already on her way out at the network. Kelly has apparently also fired her talent agency, ACA, and hired a powerful Hollywood litigator to help her with negotiating her exit.

But some have pointed out that other well-known television personalities have done far worse than Kelly – and have seen their careers blossom, as opposed to getting the boot. A friendly reminder from the Daily Caller reveals that Kelly’s alleged misdeed is small potatoes compared to the antics of other celebrities – who have actually donned blackface.

Jimmy Kimmel, who hosts a popular late-night talk show broadcast on ABC, once did a skit on his now-defunct comedy program, “The Man Show,” in which he portrayed former Utah Jazz basketball star Karl Malone. Kimmel wasn’t just in blackface – his entire body had been painted black.

Comedian Sarah Silverman donned blackface in a comedy sketch from 2007, and television host Jimmy Fallon once portrayed Chris Rock in a Saturday Night Live skit from 2000 – wearing blackface, of course.

While these stunts received their fair share of criticism, all three of the liberal-minded celebrities have become common fixtures on American television. Kelly – despised by American liberals as a Fox News turncoat – was apparently not afforded the same wide berth.

Kelly’s imminent exit also coincides with a bizarre segment on Dr. Phil – which was apparently allowed to air because it has ‘entertainment value.’

Kelly herself reportedly believes that her coverage of #MeToo controversies, including those involving NBC stars like Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw, may be the real reason that she is being forced out of the network. Her lawyer has reportedly asked that Ronan Farrow, who left NBC News last year after the network refused to run his story on Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, to attend Kelly’s exit negotiations.
