May, 2018, Part 4, Political Class Insanity: A D-List Celebrity Breaks Campaign Laws, An Idiotic Foreign Leader Blames Jews for the Holocaust, and Another Politician gets #METOOed

It is another month which means it is again time to review the latest political class insanity from Washington and around the world. Political class insanity takes many forms including the wasting of taxpayer wealth, criminal fraud within government programs, inane and stupid political quotes and actions, the inability to create and implement effective and efficient government programs, stupid and ill performing economic policies and strategies, and other forms of insanity that continue to evolve and surprise and shock us.

Let's get started:

1) Rosie O’Donnell is a D-List celebrity that has had a running public battle with Donald Trump for a long time. Given that Trump is Republican President, it is no surprise that O’Donnell is a heavy election contributor to Democrats, maybe a little too heavy:
  • According to a recent article by the Fix This Nation website, she has been caught making illegal campaign contributions to Democratic politicians.
  • New York Post reporting stated that she made at least five illegal campaign donations to Democrats.
  • These donations exceeded the maximum $2,700 contribution that the Federal Election Commission has established that an individual can give for each candidate in each election.
  • Of course, she claimed ignorance as her defence: “Nothing nefarious. I was not choosing to over donate. If 2700 is the cut off, they should refund the money. I don’t look to see who I can donate most to. I just donate assuming they do not accept what is over the limit.”
  • Nice try but since she donated using different addresses and variations off of her own name, this claim of ignorance really holds no water.
  • She then jumped to another reason for breaking the law, using breaking donation laws as a form of self medication: “My anxiety is quelled by donating to those opposing trump [and] his agenda — especially at night — when most of these were placed.”
As with politicians and famous people, laws are often merely suggestions for them while punishable, finable, and jailable offences for the rest of us if we broke election laws.

2) We often talk about how stupid and ignorant American politicians are. But borders to not stop political stupidity and ignorance from occurring all over the world:
  • According to another Fix This Nation report, the head of the Palestinian Authority recently claimed that bad Jewish banking practices caused the Holocaust.
  • Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas recently said that Jews brought the Holocaust on themselves with their “social behavior, charging interest, and financial matters.”
  • He went on to make sure everyone knew that he was not interested in a peaceful settlement of tensions with Israel.
Nice guy, Holocaust denier and actually blaming the victims for getting six million of their kind killed and shutting the door to any kind of peace deal, ensuring that his people and constituents will continue to suffer for years to come while he continues to live the good life. Typical politician.

3) It seems that almost daily now, American political figures are seeing their careers go down the drain or up in smoke because they suffer some form of being a sexual predator, a fate most deserve. Earlier this month one of our political class insanity posts covered just the recent and numerous flameouts for just the state of California, from a sitting U.S. Congressman to state government politicians.

But this sexual affliction is not restricted to California or some obscure local or state politician:
  • According to a recent Independent Journal Review article by William Steakin, the state of New York Attorney General was recently forced to resign.
  • New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned when news reports surfaced that reported multiple women accused him of assault.
  • The reports started at The New Yorker magazine, which detailed abuse allegations from four women, two of which went on the record with their identities to make their accusations.
  • These two women accuse Schneiderman of choking and hitting them so badly that they had to seek medical attention.
  • The two unnamed women said he slapped them.
  • The ironic thing if these accusations from four different women are true is that Schneiderman fancied himself as a crusader against this type of abusive behavior, vocally supporting the #METOO movement and going after one of the alleged premier sexual predators of our time, Harvey Weinstein.
  • Schneiderman denied the accusations: “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me. While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office's work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”
As always, he is innocent until proven guilty. And as always, when many women make the same accusations about similar abuse and the alleged perp immediately resigns or decides not to seek reelection, the outcome is likely already been decided.

That will do it for today: another accused politician faces abuse accusers (this is really getting tiresome even if it is necessary to weed those that are actually this scummy), a foreign politician in denial or just plain stupid when it comes to the causes of the Holocaust, and another famous celebrity thinks the laws of the land do not apply to her. More insanity to follow.
