ZING! Sarah Huckabee Sanders Takes Down Far Left Hack April Ryan and Crooked Hillary in ONE SENTENCE (Video)

GatewayPundit - Fri, 11/17/2017 - 21:09

Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a white house briefing today after a week of explosive sexual allegations against Judge Roy Moore, Democrat Al Sharpton and more Hollywood stars.

During the briefing American Urban Radio Networks correspondent asked her about Hillary Clinton’s worried remarks on President Trump.
It was a lob ball and Sanders hit it out of the park.

April Ryan: I was talking to Hillary Clinton today about the president’s past and she said, “Look I worry about everything from his past because it tells you how he behaves in the present and the future.” What do you say to that as it relates to these allegations of the president?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: I think Hillary Clinton probably should have dealt with some of her own issues before addressing this president.

Zing!

Huckabee Sanders quickly moved on to the next question.
Too funny!

How Much Power Does The Senate Ethics Committee Have? A Lot

Newsy - Fri, 11/17/2017 - 21:08

Watch Video

The Senate ethics committee might be busy in the coming months. The committee said it's picking back up its corruption investigation of Sen. Bob Menendez, and it might look into sexual misconduct allegations against Sen. Al Franken.

So what does this process look like? And what types of punishments could the committee hand down?

Prior to 1964, ethics and code of conduct investigations in Congress didn't really exist. For a little more than a decade after 1964, various committees in the House and Senate ran investigations. Then in 1977, the Senate Select Committee on Ethics was created.

The Constitution gives each chamber of Congress the power to discipline its members, and since the late '70s, that power in the Senate has lay with the ethics commmittee.

Anyone can send a complaint to that committee, and that kicks off a preliminary inquiry. During that investigation, the committee looks for substantial credible evidence to back up the complaint.

If the committee can't find enough evidence, the complaint is officially dismissed. If there is enough evidence to corroborate the complaint, the committee has two choices: issue a letter of admonition or start a formal review of the evidence.

That formal investigation can include interviews, sworn statements, subpoenas, depositions or "any other actions that the Committee deems appropriate."

Once the committee completes a formal review, it still has the option to resolve the issue with a letter of admonition. Or it can recommend the Senate take disciplinary action.

That punishment could include restitution payments, censure or expulsion.

Since 1789, only nine senators have ever been censured — which is a formal statement of disapproval. Expulsion, or kicking a senator out of office, requires a two-thirds vote from the entire chamber. In total, only 15 senators have been kicked out, and 14 of those expulsions happened during the Civil War.

Megyn Kelly to Trump: You have some nerve lecturing anyone about sexual assault

Hot Air - Fri, 11/17/2017 - 21:01

I’m posting this mainly in the hope that it’ll help get the Trump/Kelly feud off the ground again. That’d give him a fun new target on Twitter and it’d be dynamite for her ratings. Who among us doesn’t miss the glory days of “blood coming out of her wherever”?

Besides Megyn Kelly, I mean.

She’s right about Trump’s gall in goofing on Franken, of course. I don’t know know what he was thinking posting these tweets last night. He’s waving a red cape in front of a media that was already eager to charge at him again over the allegations he faced last year.

The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps? …..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 17, 2017

.And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 17, 2017

The first tweet is especially baffling. Literally 300 million people will read that and immediately know that Trump has a firm idea of where a lech might want to put his hands on a woman.

As chance would have it, People magazine has a feature out today asking some of POTUS’s accusers how they feel a year later, having had their claims all but completely forgotten. As Trump would say: Not good!

“Things just seem to fall off of Trump, I’m extremely disappointed,” says Jessica Leeds, 75, who alleges Trump tried to kiss her, fondle her breasts and put his hand up her skirt while on a flight to New York in the early 1980s…

“I feel this issue has been ‘on hold’ all year, but not forgotten,” says [Natasha] Stoynoff in an email. “It’s been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker. But now the heat’s on and it’s going to boil and the lid is going to blast off.”…

“It’s disturbing,” [Melinda] McGillivray says in a text, “that many of Trump’s diehard supporters are so stubborn that they can’t seem to come to terms with the reality that their president is just as guilty as Roy Moore.”

Don’t worry, the GOP will eventually reckon with the charges against him. Probably 20 years from now, when a Democratic president is in the middle of a sex scandal and it’s suddenly advantageous for the party to admits its previous moral failures in order to maintain political leverage over the other team. Democrats know how this works.

A Twitter pal asks a good question, meanwhile. How can Democrats expect the Senate to expel Roy Moore if they don’t get Al Franken to resign first? The charges against Moore are worse but there’s photographic proof of one of Franken’s misdeeds. Moore’s already complaining about a double standard; that’ll only get louder if he wins the election and the Senate moves against him while Franken is still a member. Imagine Franken casting a vote to expel Moore.

But of course, none of this is as simple as “Franken vs. Moore.” No doubt there are all sorts of transgressions that have been committed by senators over the years that are known on the Hill but nowhere else. The infamous Ted Kennedy/Chris Dodd assault on a waitress wasn’t reported until many years after it happened by journalist Michael Kelly and remains unknown to the vast majority of the public to this day. If Franken goes or Moore goes — or both go — it leaves McConnell and Schumer in a position of eventually having to move against other senators in their own caucus whose misdeeds aren’t yet known, but might be soon. A “zero tolerance” policy could produce a massive sh*tstorm in which multiple senators from both parties are suddenly facing expulsion or resignation. Neither Democrats nor Republicans want to deal with that. So expect both Franken and Moore to be in the Senate next year if Moore wins next month.

Woman Asks Man to Quit ‘Manspreading’ on Subway – Gets Slugged in Face

GatewayPundit - Fri, 11/17/2017 - 20:35

A New York woman was assaulted after she told a fellow passenger to quit manspreading.

The man screamed profanities at her and then slugged her in the mouth.

A good Samaritan then stepped in to calm the man down.

The New York Post reported:

A woman says she was slugged in the face by a racist lunatic on the subway — all because she asked him to stop “manspreading.”

The aftermath of Thursday’s violent exchange was caught on video as a good Samaritan tries to defend the woman and usher her violent attacker off the train.

The victim, Sam Saia, said she was riding the N train through Bensonhurst while on her way to work in Manhattan when the man sat down and started overcrowding her around 7:45 a.m.

“He proceeded to press me against the wall and man spread me excessively,” she wrote on Facebook after the incident.

“When I asked him to give me room, he yelled ‘B–ch, you ain’t nothing! I’ve raped white b–ches like you, f—ing c–t! You ain’t nothing, you f—ing b–ch!’”

The woman said she put in her earbuds and tried to ignore the raging man as he continued his tirade.

But the man then socked her in the mouth, bloodying her lip and knocking her head into the wall behind her, she said.

Tesla's New Semitruck Might Be Playing Catch-Up

Newsy - Fri, 11/17/2017 - 20:34

Watch Video

Tesla recently unveiled its electric semitruck. So how does it stack up to the competition?

The Tesla Semi is a standard Class 8, the largest commonly used class of heavy-duty freight trucks. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said it can travel up to 500 miles on a single battery charge and will reload via Tesla "megachargers." And he guaranteed the truck will have a lifespan of about a million miles.

But while this vehicle might seem impressive, the electric truck market is already competitive. Several other companies have recently unveiled their own vehicles.

Daimler's E-FUSO Vision One is an all-electric heavy-duty truck that can travel almost 220 miles on a single charge — not nearly as far as Tesla's. But the company does already have a deal with UPS.

Bosch and Nikola Motor teamed up to develop a long-haul hydrogen-electric truck, which could be released as early as 2020. The companies claim it will have a range of 1,200 miles.

Startups are also entering the game. Swedish company Einride, for example, is developing a remote-controlled all-electric rig system for its semitrucks. The vehicle can travel up to 125 miles on one charge.

And while Musk promoted the Tesla Semi's autopilot feature, that's not unique, either. Daimler has been working to make its trucks autonomous for years. And Einride's vehicles wouldn't even have a driver's cab.

Although those other trucks didn't get Tesla's flashy rollout, production on the Tesla Semi doesn't begin until 2019. So we'll have to wait and see if it can truly stand out from the pack.
