Hey CNN, Bernie Sanders is Running For President of the United States!!

One would think they would know this, right? Especially considering Bernie just interviewed on the "network" Reliable Sources" Program. Which make this picture, taken from my cell phone either full of straight up propaganda, done on purpose or better yet - a combination of both!

Take a look at the headline. See anything inaccurate about it?



Just in case my kids trophies are blocking a full view, it says: "Martin O' Malley to Become Clinton's First Rival".

Who's Defending the Duggers Girls - The Real VICTIMS!

This post will be a LONG READ, and I'll try to limit my commentary.

It is disappointing to read some (a very small amount of folks) on DU question why folks are discussing Duggargate. These folks have wrote in just, "There is a Piling On" occurring and so on and so forth.

However, as questions rightfully are raised about who knew what when in the Duggar household, more than a moment of reflection needs to focus on the ACTUAL VICTIMS. Four of Josh's Sisters are those victims.

Jim Bob, Michelle and yes Josh are not in anyway more important than the YOUNG FEMALE VICTIMS who were taught by their "parents" all Men are the head of the household and to OBEY them.

Yes, OBEY which means if Jim Bob refused (which it is likely he did) to allow these VICTIMS who were his Daughters to have Counseling, Michelle Obeyed -- covered up this SICK PERVERTED behavior for not only her "Husband" but for Josh, the TLC Royalties, a new house (Built by TLC), fame and publicly. All of this at the expense of ignoring the VICTIMS -- Jim Bob and Michelle's Daughters - who were taught to OBEY, SHUT UP and SMILE.

These folks have no defense, period and should be charged with multiple crimes. Furthermore, I believe more than inappropriate touching likely occurred in the Duggar household and time will reveal the rest of this SICK story.

Meanwhile, the report from Gawker is damning -- to say the least:

"According to the police report released by InTouch, Josh’s father Jim Bob (referred to in the report as “James”) first learned of Josh’s behavior in March 2002, when one victim approached Jim Bob and said that Josh touched her breasts and genitals while she slept.

Jim Bob appears not to have acted on the accusation. In July 2002, Josh, then 14 years old, admitted to the behavior to his father, prompting Jim Bob to “discipline” Josh but not report the incident to the authorities.

In March 2003, according to the report, Josh fondled a victim while he read a book to her. Jim Bob was made aware of this and several more accusations—victims accused Josh of touching their breasts and genitals while they slept, and sometimes while they were awake.

The police report suggests that four of Josh’s sisters were victims. In 2002, there were five sisters living in the Duggar house: Jana, then 12; Jill, 11; Jessa, 10; Jinger, 9; and Joy-Anna, 5.

In March 2003, Jim Bob met with “church elders” to discuss Josh’s behavior, and they decided Josh needed to enter a treatment program. He was sent to a “Christian” program consisting of “hard physical work and counseling” from March 2003 to July 2003. Josh’s mother Michelle later admitted to police that Josh did not see a counselor, and was instead sent “to a family friend who was in the home remodeling business” in Little Rock, Arkansas.

When Josh returned home in July 2003, his father and church elders took him to a state trooper to confess what he’d done. The trooper, Cpl. Hutchins, gave Josh a “very stern talk” but did not charge him with any crimes.

InTouch reports that Hutchins was later arrested on child pornography charges and is currently serving 56 years in prison.

Most of the rest of the world was first introduced to the Duggar family on September 6, 2005 with the one-hour Discovery Health special, 14 Children and Pregnant Again! The show followed the family as they prepared for their 15th child, Jackson, and paved the way for many similar specials, and, ultimately, 19 Kids and Counting on TLC.

According to the police report and InTouch, a Duggar family appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2006 was cancelled after a “61-year-old woman” emailed Harpo Studios to warn producers about Josh’s sexual misconduct. Harpo Studios forwarded the information to the Department of Human Services hotline, which trigged an investigation by the Springdale Police Department.

It’s not clear who tipped Oprah off and how she knew about Josh’s misconduct, but Jim Bob and Michelle told police that when Josh was accused of molesting his sisters, a family friend wrote down the accusations in a letter that was then placed in a book in the Duggars’ home. Sometime during 2006, the Duggars loaned the book to another person and the letter was discovered.

Throughout the Springdale Police Department’s investigation, three more Duggar specials aired on Discovery Health in 2006: Raising 16 Children on March 13, 16 Children and Moving In on March 15, and On the Road with 16 Children on June 11.

In December 2006, Springdale police interviewed the Duggars about Josh’s behavior. Jim Bob would not produce Josh for questioning—per InTouch, “when police asked Jim Bob to bring Josh in for an interview in 2006, he attempted to hire a lawyer and refused to produce his son for questioning. At least two lawyers refused to take his case.”

Police ultimately did not file charges against Josh because the three-year statute of limitations had run out.

2007: Duggar message boards reveal Josh’s sexual abuse

Though Jim Bob and Michelle decidedly hid Josh’s misconduct from the press and protected him from arrest, the secret had gotten out. They told police in 2006 that “several members of their church were aware of the situation and had been supportive of the family.”

In May 2007, the allegations surfaced online in a comment on a blog about the Duggars. Commenter “Alice”—who has since been referred to on various Duggar message boards as the originator of the rumor—wrote (emphasis added):

Let me tell you something about the precious Duggars that you don’t know. ... In January, the whole family went to Chicago and taped Oprah Winfrey show. Oprah wined and dined them for one week. You know that had to cost some pretty pennies. As you may have noticed, that show never aired and it never will. Oprah was informed that Josh, the oldest son, had been molesting his sisters. Yes, this is the truth. Oprah turned them over to the Arkansas State Police Child Protection Agency and the Washington County Child Protection Agency.

They have been investigated to some length. Jim Bob Duggar told the producers of the show that he built a small church out back for his followers. HIS FOLLOWERS. GET REAL. THE MAN IS A FRAUD. In April, they were in court with their story. They have to report to Arkansas Department of Human Services every six months..

They have lied and lied about their son to protect him at their daughters expense.

For some unknown reason the boy is still in the home with the girls. God only know if this is still going on. In my eyes he is a CHILD MOLESTOR. HE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE HOME. What kind of parents cover up for one child and hurt the others. I do not believe that this is what God has in mind for them. Frauding the American people and taking their money and living off of it.They did not build their home by themselves. They hired it done. TheDiscovery Health Channel and the TLC channel wrote them a check for over $200,000. for the to build the house. Everything inside the house was given to them except the kitchen. They did buy that themselves. The rest is all free. ...


Alice added, “God’s honest truth that the molestation happened. It happened to four of his 5 sisters. The oldest daughter was not touched. The second daughter is the one who caught him doing this. There was no rape involved, but molested. I could go into detail, but I won’t. Of course, you can find nothing about the charges. The Duggar’s want to keep this hid. Wouldn’t you?”

There is NO DEFENDING this FAMILY and this is a story which should indeed be talked about!

State Senator Virgil Smith Should Not Resign: Michigan Politics is a Messy Business

"Michigan State Senator Virgil Smith is experiencing a real life based version of Scandal. Someone needs to call a Detroit based Olivia Pope clone to the rescue.

The details are quite messy.

An Jealous Ex-Wife, a Bed, a New Partner, a Young 35 year old State Senator, a 2015 Mercedes Benz, Windows, front door Greetings in a Birthday Suit, alleged Multiple Assaults and a Automatic Shotgun.

According to WDIV-Detroit Channel 4, Smith has been charged with domestic violence, felonious assault, malicious destruction of property and felony firearm and litany of other charges by Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy in connection the incident involving his ex-wife at his Detroit home.

On Sunday, Smith's ex-Wife alleges the State Senator greeted her at his home's front door, in his birthday suit, after she showed up in the middle of the night. Smith allegedly had the company of another Woman in his home when the ex-Wife arrived.

According to the ex-Wife, State Senator Smith beat her with his fists, chased her outside and shot at her four to five times as well as firing at her car, at and near 18000 block of Wexford on the Detroit's east side."

The Last Word - Michigan Progressive Bloggers Unite: Vote NO on Proposal 1

Back to the statement by a resource Democrats, Liberals and Progressives electing to vote NO on Michigan Proposal 1 are Tea Partiers or Tea Baggers.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Opposing a Regressive Tax Increase is a core principle of a majority of Democrats, Liberals and Progressives.

Taking income out of the pockets of those who can least afford it under normal circumstances would not gain little if any support of voters aligning with policies of FDR or the creation of a "Great Society" touted by President Lyndon Johnson.

However, in desperate times strange bedfellows morph a highly questionable existence leaving the masses baffled, confused and unfortunately called "Tea-Partiers" by some as a bottom of the barrel scare tactic.

The REAL Bottom Line on Michigan's Proposal 1 of 2015: Just Say NO!

"Over course of the last month, there has been plenty of Mudslinging in the Michigan Proposal 1 of 2015 debate.

From large pieces of asphalt being smashed into the window of a "mock" school bus, paid for at some point or the other by taxpayers dollars. To the drumbeat of some Democrats calling other Democrats and Progressives strongly against Proposal 1 "Teabaggers".

Also, confusing some voters by using a Ex-Senator from Michigan - Carl Levin in a commercial supporting of Proposal 1 claiming he is the current Senator from Michigan."

The Most Ineffective Strategy To Elect Hillary.....Attack Bernie Sanders and his Supporters

This post will be kept short and to the point.

There are many Progressives who are either Democrats or Left-lending Independents that are too proud Senator Bernie Sanders is giving it a go to run for President.

He has every right considering Senator Sanders has stood with the Middle and Lower Classes in regards to sound economic policy nearly every time.

Many Progressives admire Bernie who does not take corporate, lobbyist or Wall Street "Quid Per Quo" money to turn around and support a job killing trade policy called the TPP.

Senator Sanders Caucasus with Democrats, however, is not afraid or timid to call out Democrats when their potential votes, policy or politico speak are with the 10% instead of 90% of folks who are not ultra-rich, have tax havens off-shore or who owe a "political favor" to those making big dollars (by cheating the rest of us) on Wall Street.

Yet, SOME not all but SOME Hillary Clinton supporters -- feel threaten by Senator Sanders running for President. So much so, they are calling him Ralph Nader or worse a spoiler candidate.

And others are going as far to nearly label Progressives of both Democratic and Independent Left Lending ties -- Junior Teabaggers for supporting a Senator Sanders Presidential Candidacy.

Here are the raw facts: Keep this Modus Operandi up -- i.e. Attacking Bernie Sanders as Ralph Nader II -- and watch your candidate of choice LOSE come the first Tuesday in November of 2016.

Why?

Unjust attacks and lies on Senator Sanders will do NOTHING but encourage those who MIGHT consider voting for Hillary Clinton, if Bernie Sanders cannot win or secure the Democratic Nomination to -- JUST STAY HOME. Or worst, skip right pass the ballot where voting for President is a option.

So, for those Ultra-Pro Hillary -- allow Bernie to run without deploying a scorched earth, PUMA style 2015/2016 attack on Senator Sanders. No one wins by using this highly ineffective strategy -- except possibly a Republican -- which neither side should NOT want.

#FoodForThought
