Loretta Weinberg stood by sucky sucky in the oval office

State Senate Democrat Leader Loretta Weinberg is a shameless old thing.  She sits and refuses to speed up firearms permits for women who need self-protection and watches as they are knifed to death in their driveways.  Oh well, it wasn't me, she consoles herself. 

Then Weinberg refuses to hold government accountable for failing to protect its citizens:  No, we don't need to protect you, she argues, and no, we won't let you protect yourselves.  Weinberg's message to people is this:  Die for my cause.

Of course, Weinberg posts on Facebook pictures of her in Israel surrounded by the men with guns who protect her.  She works in buildings protected by dozens of men with guns.  Loretta Weinberg LOVES guns... for her.  The rest of us can, well... die.  As a member of the Politburo, we should understand that she deserves more protection than the rest of us.  Her life is more valuable than the lives of your children.  Go Loretta!

Weinberg refuses to allow the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Prevention Act to come to a vote.  Why?  Because it might cut into the profits of the donor class and money is more important than some kids being sold into sexual slavery.  Just change the subject and point to a flag... can you feel the virtue?

Loretta Weinberg's current outrage is over Republican Assemblyman Parker Space.  He said the word "bitch."  For this infraction, Weinberg has suggested that the Republican's nuts be placed in a jar and made an offering to her.  Rather barbaric but then she has never been one for culture.  Fashion statements, yes, culture, not so much.

Apparently, Loretta forgets her indefatigable support of President William Jefferson Clinton in the face of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, lewd behavior, sexual molestation, and rape.  Come on, he's a Democrat, give him a break.  Besides, in Loretta's world, coercing a young intern into providing an elected official with oral sex in a government office is small beans when compared to saying that infamous five-letter-word.  Hey, the fellow who said that word is a Republican... and we hate them Republicans, don't we?

Back when Clinton was up to his sexual mischief, Senator Weinberg said she was "angry" with those who mentioned it and blamed the prosecutor for "invading this portion of our government."  Defending President Clinton after his sexual improprieties came to light, Weinberg said that she had "enormous respect for his ability as the President."   His ability?  What a poor choice of words.

And speaking of President Clinton's "ability," here's a partial list of those he was "able" with:  Juanita BroaddrickPaula JonesKathleen WilleyMonica Lewinsky...

Which brings us to the latest scumbag Democrat  -- Senator Bob Menendez.  Now over the years Loretta has just slobbered all over the state's senior senator.  Now that we all know the tale about how he helped a mega-rich scumbag import some girls into the good old U.S. of A. -- you would think that Loretta Weinberg would be out there, every day, holding a sign up and calling for his immediate resignation.  Not Loretta. 

Remember what Senator Loretta Weinberg called this case of sexploitation:

"Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg said today that the burgeoning scandal surrounding U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez is a 'distraction' from what’s important to Garden State residents right now."

Is that a classic or what?

Think of the kind of perverted, upside-down mind you need to have to call for the resignation of someone who uses a word that Senator Weinberg herself has used many times but then to argue against the resignations of critters like William Jefferson Clinton and Robert Menendez.  She has power, she has money, she has a dirty weird kind of icky political "celebrity" but she has no integrity.  People respond to her, for the present, because of the former.  She will be quickly forgotten, because of the latter.

Mark Matzen used improperly obtained recordings

On Wednesday, the executive director of the Assembly Democrats issued a Fatwa on Republican Assemblyman Parker Space (Sussex-Warren-Morris) demanding in the name of his caucus that the Republican resign because he used a five-letter word:  B-I-T-C-H.  Curiously, Matzen was a key New Jersey apologist for William Jefferson Clinton when all those women were coming forward claiming to have been sexually molested by him in the 1990's. 

Let's be clear.  According to Mark Matzen, an elected official can use an intern for oral sex in the oval office, and he should NOT lose his job for that.  But if an elected official says the word "bitch" then Matzen just can't contain himself, loses his ass, and demands that he be fired.  UhhhHuh...

Matzen played the shill for the molester-in-chief, but he called Republican Space "an example of what can happen when a political party embraces the worst of human impulses and turns a blind eye to the ugliness brewing in its own backyard."  And you wonder why people think political spin artists like Matzen suck?  You wonder why people think those who employ them suck?

If using the word "bitch" is the "worse of human impulses," then where does that leave Mr. Elton John?

Or Meredith Brooks?

Matzen was only too happy to suck up money from his fellow Clinton sexual molestation apologists at MoveOn.org.  Get it.  It was right to "Move On" from the sucky sucky at the White House (everyone does it!) but you have to make a federal case out of the word "bitch" (how outrageous, nobody EVER uses THAT word...).  Funnier still is that Matzen himself is known for having a rather salty tongue and has been known to heap abuse of a far worse kind.  Matzen is a real champ when it comes to pissing on people.

We do not know from what source Matzen obtained his copy of the improper recording of a personal conversation between Parker Space and a friend, but it is clear that the friend -- a woman who happens to be the Executive Director of the Sussex County Democratic Committee -- is very unhappy that she and Parker had their privacy stripped from them by Matzen and his allies.

We note that this is not the first time that Matzen has come under fire for the improper use of a recording.  The last time involved a congressional candidate.  We hope a pattern is not forming.

We all remember how Democrats and, it must be said, some Republicans, spoke about Governor Christine Todd Whitman (and how even Democrat women chortled at this).  The hypocrisy, and the purple prose, and the false outrage are about as believable as a claim that the average Democrat legislator has never paid for sex.  And you know what that means?  It means that they probably participated in human trafficking -- the modern slave trade.

Now that is truly "disgusting conduct" and a "regressive worldview."  That shows a real "lack of respect for women" or anyone with less money and means than your average double-dipping Democrat.  It indicates that someone is "absolutely unfit for public office."  And, if we may use the words provided in a different context by Mark Matzen, such a legislator should be "denounced" and asked to "resign."  Those Legislative leaders who do not ferret out those among their caucus who use the innocent victims of human trafficking "are complicit in promoting" modern slavery.

So ends the sermon Mark Matzen should have delivered to his own people.  We wish him the best in uncovering the less than virtuous amongst his flock.  If he needs assistance, we will be happy to provide it.

In the meantime, if Democrat Matzen would truly like to do some good and show respect for women, end disgusting and regressive conduct, and show that he is fit for the office he holds, he could ask the Democrat caucus to allow the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Prevention Act to the floor for a vote.  No purple prose, hysteria or hypocrisy... just let it come to a vote so that children may be saved from sexual slavery.

Exchange outs Politico reporter as anti-Catholic bigot

Read this exchange between a woman from Sussex County and Politico reporter Matt Friedman.  It perfectly illustrates what is wrong with so-called "journalism" today.  Politico's Matt Friedman behaves like an ideological combatant -- as if he were the media wing of ANTIFA. 

In this exchange, Friedman places our Judeo-Christian tradition alongside Wicca (the worship of Satan) and trashes Roman Catholicism.  Friedman defends Islam and its practices, including Sharia Law,  as "no worse" than what Christians and Jews get up to.  Friedman also trashes Buddhism. 

Friedman willfully ignores modern day slavery -- with its human trafficking and child exploitation.  He clearly shows that he would rather try to attach someone to the slavery that happened over 150 years ago than to address the slavery happening today.  He even stoops to trashing the Roman Catholic church in an attempt to deflect blame away from his ideological comrades. 

No Republican, conservative, decent Democrat, or traditional liberal should ever be foolish enough to place their trust in this shill again.

Good afternoon Matt,

Take a look at this.  Can you believe our Democrat candidates are standing next to a flag with Wiccan symbols on it?  The purpose of this flag is to show that witchcraft is on equal footing with our Judeo-Christian tradition.  Please look into this and let me know what you are doing about it.

This is one of the dumbest exchanges I’ve ever had.

You’re painting an entire religion with the actions of a few. If Wicca is responsible for child molestation because a Wiccan priest committed the act, then by your logic Catholicism is responsible for the child molestation committed by some of its priests. That’s your logic, not mine.

And why do the abhorrent labor practices in Qatar represent the entirety of the world’s biggest religion? You’re not going to get an argument from me on how horrible Qatar and some other oil-rich middle-eastern countries treat migrant workers. But don’t you think you could find examples of horrible labor practices and atrocities in predominantly Christian countries? Hindu countries? Buddhist countries? And yet, you’re not holding those religions responsible for the sins committed by some of their practitioners. Why’s that?

Why the insults?  Matt, the Roman Catholic church recognizes evil.  Wicca witchcraft does not.  You put forward YOUR argument that Roman Catholicism and Wicca are on equal footing.  YOU attempted to paint the worship of God and the worship of Satan as one in the same.  It is not my logic, it is your logic.  You raised it.  You argued it.  You own it.  That makes you a bigot.

As for your deflection on behalf of Islam.  Name some religious states (Qatar is an Islamic state) that are doing the same as Qatar?  Name some Christian countries? Hindu countries? Buddhist countries? Name some.  

Now why don't you do your job as a journalist and report fairly on this?  I remember when it was BIG NEWS that a Republican Senate candidate in Delaware was involved in Wicca (but then became a Christian).  Her PAST was a BIG DEAL and got lots of ink.  This is the present.  Report on it.

Kind of amazing that you don’t even recognize you threw the first insult. Look back at the exchange.

It’s also funny that you’re generalizing about entire religions and calling me a bigot. You can find atrocities committed by people in virtually every major country in the world, by people of virtually every major religion. Yet you only demonize a couple of those religions.

Here’s an example of religious oppression going on in a Buddhist country right now: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/05/rohingya-muslims-driven-myanmar-pictures/. What about ethnic cleansing in Serbia in the early 90s?  It goes on and on and on and on…  

Our constitution does not elevate any religion above any others. If you do, that’s your business. But it’s not my concern.

There is nothing newsworthy about some people holding a banner with the symbol for every religion they could think of. There is something newsworthy about an elected official standing in front of the symbol of the confederacy, which launched a war to separate from the United States so it could perpetuate slavery. That’s my news judgement. I really don’t care if you disagree.

Did you forget Hansel and Gretel?  Yeah, it is amazing.  

I guess you never read up on Wahhabism.  Under some of the most wealthy, dominant sects of Islam, slavery is not only doctrine but it is practiced.  Nations like Qatar practice state slavery.  You don't care.  You called it in one of your emails a "migrant worker" problem and a "labor practices" problem.  No, not "migrant workers", they are slaves.  They have been trafficked.  No, not "labor practices", it is called slavery.

Am I "generalizing" about Sharia law and what it means to women who must live under it?  In your "news judgment" (whatever that is) I guess I am.

Then there is Wicca.  You call it a "religion" and place it on the same level as our Judeo-Christian tradition.  That's sick.  There is nothing religious about the worship of evil.  

Then you smear Buddhism by claiming that a "Buddhist country" is committing religious oppression.  You obviously don't understand Buddhism, because to do that is a rejection of Buddhism, not the practice of it.  That is not the way with Islam, which clearly instructs believers to wage jihad.  When Christians act un-Christian, you cannot blame the teachings of Christ.  But you do and that makes you a bigot.  You look for an excuse to hate and nurture your excuses.

It is much more important for you to play with symbols because you lack the balls to take on the real evil around you.  Wally Edge taught you well.

What is most shocking about this exchange is that Politico's Friedman refuses to call what is happening in Qatar by its real name -- slavery.  In Friedman's eyes it is an issue about how "Qatar and some other oil-rich middle-eastern countries treat migrant workers."  Friedman likens it to an immigration issue (the better to bash Trump?) when, in fact, the United Nations and groups like Amnesty International have clearly identified it as a case of human trafficking and slavery.   But Friedman dismisses it as merely an issue of "labor practices."  So on top of being a bigot, Politico's Matt Friedman is a slavery-denier too. 

Migrant workers in Qatar helping to construct offices for the 2022 World Cup reportedly haven't been paid after a year of toiling in the desert heat in slum like conditions. Sharan Burrow from the International Trade Union Confederation thinks Qatar should be boycotted until fundamental labor laws are in place.

Sussex Democrats use vigil to attack opponent

candlelight-vigil.jpg

Last month, dozens of Sussex County residents met on the Green in Newton to hold a vigil in support of efforts to end opiate addiction.  Most were there for an honest, solemn purpose.  Some were there to get dirt on their neighbors.

It is no secret that Kate Matteson wants Parker Space's job.  She wants it bad enough to try to damage his business.  She wants it bad enough to try to turn a solemn vigil into a political sting operation.  While everyone else was praying to end the community's curse of opiate addiction, Matteson was trying to screw somebody over.

In a Politico column published yesterday, Democrat candidate Matteson admitted that her operatives used the vigil to try to lure her opponent into a conversation, tape it, and then use it as a kind of blackmail.  Perhaps the goal is to force Assemblyman Space out of office, much as the Left has attempted to force President Trump out of office?  This would represent a direct challenge to democracy and the will of the voters because Assemblyman Space is one of the highest vote-getters in the Legislature of either party. 

The question is this:  What kind of person would use a vigil for this purpose?  The vigil was to be a non-political gathering of concerned residents.  Who would authorize such an action?  Who would attempt to sell it to the media?

Democrat Senate candidate Jennifer Hamilton dismissed the whole affair as a personal clash between Matteson and Space, telling Politico that she believed it was about "Parker Space venting his frustration about what he perceived as an attack on his family business.  And that was the premise of the conversation. That was the build-up to that moment.  I don’t feel I need to be brought into peoples’ personal disagreements or battles with one another in terms of their personality conflicts. I think it’s clear from what we’ve seen in our local media that there is conflict between the two of them [Space and Matteson]."

hamilton-matteson.jpg

As it turns out, the recording is not a very professional one and contains a number of garbled voices.  It is unclear if Assemblyman Space's is even among the voices present on the tape, while another voice (a woman's voice) apparently agrees with a negative assessment made of candidate Matteson, and still another voice repeats the phrase "elitist one-percenter" when referring to Democrat Matteson, the well-to-do-spouse of a wealthy doctor.

In the article, Matteson, who only began voting in 2016, actually tries to compare Assemblyman Space to President Trump -- fiercely attacking both in the process.  She may have only started voting last year, but she seems determined to make up for it with an extra dose of venom.

This isn't the first time candidate Matteson has used a solemn occasion for political purposes.  On September 11th, she and her running mate, Gina Trish, attended their first 9/11 observance and promptly turned it into a campaign photo opportunity.  It was rather disgusting and occasioned the remarks of many present for its gross lack of class.  Candidate Matteson might be upper class when it comes to having money, but she lacks it when it comes to manners.

New UN report finds 40 million slaves across the globe

The International Labor Organization (ILO), part of the United Nations estimates that more than 25 million people are in forced labor and 15 million people are in sexual slavery.  The report, called the 2017 Global Estimates of Modern Slavery notes that it is "impossible to know exactly how many people are living in modern slavery, and different studies have produced different estimates."

human trafficking 1.jpg

According to the report, women and girls accounted for 71 percent of slavery victims, including 99 percent of those in the commercial sex industry and 84 percent of victims of forced marriages.  Children made up around 37 percent of those forced to marry, as well as 18 percent of forced labor victims and 21 percent of victims of sexual exploitation. An estimated 4.1 million people are victims of forced labor imposed by authoritarian governments.

The report found that modern slavery was most prevalent in Africa (7.6 victims per 1,000 people), followed by Asia and the Pacific (6.1 per 1,000).  Forced labor was most prevalent in the Asia and the Pacific region, (4 victims per 1,000 people), and forced marriage was most prevalent in Africa (4.8 per 1,000), followed by Asia and the Pacific (2 per 1,000). The report warns that these regional figures should be interpreted with caution, because of a lack of available data in some regions, notably the Arab States and the Americas.

sex trafficking case.jpg

The report identified forced labor in all kinds of industries.  In the cases where the type of work was known, 24 percent of adults were domestic workers, 18 percent were in construction, 15 percent in manufacturing, and 11 percent in agriculture and fishing.

An estimated 3.8 million adults were victims of forced sexual exploitation and 1 million children were victims of sexual exploitation.  A recent CNN documentary focused on one American metropolitan area -- Atlanta -- and found that the illegal sex industry there generates around $290 million a year.
