Sen. Hirono Asked Barrett if She ‘Ever Made Unwanted Requests for Sexual Favors,’ or Committed Sexual Harassment

Sen. Hirono Asked Barrett if She ‘Ever Made Unwanted Requests for Sexual Favors,’ or Committed Sexual Harassment

Sorry, Senator. No Kavanaugh theater for you!

You so know they want to treat her like they did Kavanaugh.

Yes, Sen. Hirono basically asked Judge Amy Coney Barrett if she ever committed sexual crimes.

I have no words. Just watch this.

Hirono does this to every nominee, but still. COME ON. I do not believe her motives are pure in this sense. Plus her young children are sitting in the front row.

This Mazie is a complete idiot. Her constituents should be ashamed for voting for her!

    Its about time that these hearings got juicy –

    We have an office pool on which Dem concocts the most idiotic scandalous claim. Winner take all. Pot has $70 in it so far

ugottabekiddinme | October 13, 2020 at 5:04 pm

This line of questioning has got to be so as to lay the groundwork for some heretofore unheard of “witness” who the Dems will trot out on Thursday, to claim that Judge Barrett propositioned him/her at some vague time in the past.
The Dems then will demand the FBI investigate these “serious” charges, etc etc. Demand a delay, and so forth.
Same old, same old.

    Prediction: it will be a librarian from Notre Dame. She will say ACB returned a book with a salacious note in it, which is now burned into her hippocampus. Then ACB’s clique all started leaving notes in the books. She had to have a bay window installed in her house to escape the trauma.

      DaveGinOly in reply to CKYoung. | October 13, 2020 at 5:48 pm

      The librarian will even remember which book it was. Subsequent investigation will determine that Notre Dame’s library never had said book in its collection.

      What would embarrass a staunch Catholic woman who is married with children, has a spotless judicial and academic record? What would the proverbial silver bullet be that could end her nomination?

      Allegations that she:
      1) Had an affair with a law school student?
      2) Sexually harassed a ND faculty member?
      3) Illegally burnt private DVD copies of the entire collection of 50 Shades of Grey from Netflix?

      It was Tropic of Cancer!

Every day I think the Democrats can’t stoop any lower, and every day they prove me wrong. Given how spectacularly stupid this senator is, I have to question what is going on in Hawaii.

How does this woman keep getting elected? Hawaiians should be embarrassed.

How can anyone possibly say under oath that they have never made unwanted requests for sexual favors? How could they know?

Even if her husband is the only person she has ever asked for a sexual favor, and he has never turned her down, how can she be sure he always wanted the request? Maybe one day he wasn’t in the mood and only acquiesced because she asked.

I am reasonably sure that Kavanaugh has, in his time, made unwanted requests for sexual favors. I’m also reasonably sure Hirono has done so, as has every person who is not celibate and not very religious. When did it become wrong?

    TheChemist in reply to Milhouse. | October 13, 2020 at 8:49 pm

    It’s kind of a Schrodinger’s Cat dilemma: One can’t really know if a sexual advance is wanted or unwanted until it’s asked, and only then does the probability wave function collapse into a dead cat or live cat, wanted or unwanted sexual advance. Sometimes you just have to run the experiment to get the answer. Shouldn’t that be the position of a party that pretends, and has pretentions about, being the “Party of Science”?

      sidebar in reply to TheChemist. | October 14, 2020 at 6:01 am

      The question must be answered from one’s own personal perspective. If you truthfully believe you have not made unwanted advances the answer is no. Other people perceive events differently.

      What would you say if a police officer stopped you and said “Some women complained that you were harassing them; you were staring at their ..” — and you were not. They may well think you did.

        amwick in reply to sidebar. | October 14, 2020 at 7:35 am

        Maybe one of ACB’s mental skills is mind reading. She does seem wicked smart…

        Milhouse in reply to sidebar. | October 14, 2020 at 8:16 pm

        The question can’t be answered from one’s own personal perspective. Whether an advance is wanted or unwanted depends entirely on the other person. I mean by definition any advance you make is wanted by you. But it may or may not be wanted by the other person, and not only can’t you know that in advance, you may not even know it after the event, if the person chose not to tell you.

        The whole notion that it’s wrong to make unwanted advances, or even that one should be punished for making unwanted advances, is fundamentally evil, because it holds people to an impossible standard. It’s all very well to say that one must take “no” for an answer; but to say that one must never ask if there is any chance at all that the answer might be “no”, I mean how can anybody support such an idea?

    Every request from Mulhouse is unwanted. Just ask Lisa Simpson.

    You’ll need better bait…

      You’re disgusting.

      But it’s interesting that we have eight (so-far) idiots here who have some mysterious objection to my comment but none of them can come up with a reply to it, because it’s the obvious truth and they all know it.

      I’m actually very puzzled by the fact that a completely unobjectionable comment can often get many down-votes just because of the hate-filled trolls who infest this forum, and yet many of my comments get no down-votes at all. Where are the trolls there? Are they asleep on the job? How do they all pick the same comment to down-vote? It’s a mystery, but not one that makes me lose any sleep. Let the haters all go to Hell.

At least ACB became an adult. She’s handled herself masterfully. They can’t rattle her. Their idiocy is on display as always.

Senator Mazie “I Belive Her” Hirohito actually asked Judge Barrett this after her disgraceful performance in the Kavanaugh hearing? (Really makes you wish the Judge could have come back with “No, Senator, have you?”)

Just wait. At the last minute, Hirono or Feinstein will pull out a letter from a psychotic individual who says that ACB molested her when they were both in the 6th grade. Of course, the accuser won’t remember when or where the event occurred, because the lack of a time or location prevents any kind of alibi.

    mochajava76 in reply to OldProf2. | October 13, 2020 at 6:45 pm

    Yes, they can try this.
    But the question specifically asks if she did this “since you became a legal adult”

    So this should also prevent an interrogation on vague yearbook quotes possibly about farts, too.

    But with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, one never knows

Sorry Mr. Dunleavy but I disagree. Just because Mazie Hiroshima is a dolt who asks the same stupid question in any situation to everybody she sees doesn’t make the stupid question any less stupid. I guess on some level we should all celebrate how diverse the Senate is that they even have mentally handicapped people serving.

Love how Fox cut away from Ernst (who is in a tight race) but cut right back in so we could listen to Spartacus say the President won’t denounce white supremacy.

Hirono is just garden-variety stuff, though she might be setting up for something later.

Keep in mind that Communists and globalists (dba the Democratic Party) are vicious, determined, and will do anything to win. The Blasey-Fraud attack on Kavanaugh was so risible that it was hard to predict. They’ll stage one or more similarly ludicrous attacks on Barrett, while CNN and Mitt Romney tut-tut about the seriousness of the charges. I hope that the Republicans are ready for it, and that they hit back for once in their cowardly, compromising lives.

    ugottabekiddinme in reply to Dantzig93101. | October 13, 2020 at 5:42 pm

    I think they just want to scare a RINO or two, like Mittens and Murkowski, to see if they’ll waffle their way to support delaying the confirmation vote until after the election, in hopes they can cheat their way to a win of the White House or to a takeover of control of the Senate, and then deep six the nomination.

      I am not sure what delaying the vote until after the election does for them. For example, Collins could then vote for her, whether she wins re-election – 6 years until up again – or loses – no consequence at all.

2smartforlibs | October 13, 2020 at 5:43 pm

Just when you think Corny has reached the peak of embarrassment she doubles down. I’d like to ask her if shes ever had a brian

for shits and giggles, Trump should have nominated bill clinton for scotus.

I agree with others, if she asked Kavanaugh she should ask Barrett. Actually she should have asked neither, but in the circumstances, it’s fine.

What do you expect from a woman named after a cow?

Thanks for following the hearings, Mary.

There’s a reason she’s called “Crazy Mazie”.

These people are evil. In a situation like this it would be a slimy, asinine question no matter who it is directed to. It would only be appropriate (maybe) if the person being asked is under suspicion of being a harasser – and then it would be incumbent on the questioner to specify what accusations are being made. Hirono may as well have asked, “Have you ever molested a child?” or “Have you ever committed war crimes?” or “Have you ever had sex with Hitler?” or some other inane evidence-free accusation. Hirono did this solely to imply wrongdoing on Barrett’s part without having to supply proof.

I have been subjected to a number of background checks, and I was never asked a question remotely like that. Hirono’s fishing expedition – like the Senator herself – is evil.

FYI, when I open a new tab I basically get the MSN newsfeed. This showed up and I just had to check out the story. It’s slightly O/T but it is relevant to the whole ACB persecution by Dems, such as Hirono is attempting.

“After a freak accident killed her husband, mom of 6 found out she was pregnant”

Check out the pic. Three of the six kids “mom of 6” has in her family are black. AND NO ONE IS CALLING HER A WHITE SUPREMACIST “COLONIZER” LIKE ACB! Because of course she’s a former “pro-life speaker” and of course a “lifelong Republican” who couldn’t face having the child she found out about after her husband was killed all by herself. So she started to secretly plan to have an abortion. Of course she didn’t tell her Xtofascist patriarchal cruel and judgemental friends about any of it because of course she’d have been subject to a cruel campaign of judgementalism! But she had a miscarriage which solved her problem.

She was so worried about how her cruel, judgemental Xtofascist patriarchal “Handmaid’s tale” would treat her she decided to go to the national media and tell everything to them. Which doesn’t of course make me thing thing this story is B.S. in part or in whole.

Perish the thought! The Today show and other brave media firefighters would never lie to us, would they.

I mean, “devout Christian” Shannon Dingle wouldn’t be trying to sell her book or trying to widen her appeal to leftist audiences in order to book speaking engagements, would she?

“I am also open to faith- and/or adoption-related events as one deeply rooted in Christianity and as an adoptive mom, but only if they are committed to honesty and integrity rather than fluff. I also insist that any event involved a full welcome to and involvement of marginalized groups (including but not limited to adoptees, disabled people, people of color, and those who are LGBTQ+).”

Funny how there’s nothing about speaking at pro-life events on her speaking page, and her writings are decidedly left leaning.

“Adoption: Not Always the Best Option”

Because of course the God of the Bible is a big fan of sex outside of marriage, prostitution even, and single motherhood. You can read all about it in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Jesus, we all know, associated with people who religious Jews considered the lowest strata of society; prostitutes and tax collectors.

And he’s constantly giving tips to the hookers about techniques they could use in bed with the johns to keep them coming back and throwing money at them. He also told the tax collectors how to get even richer by extorting money in ways even they hadn’t thought of yet.

Here’s a classic example of Jesus’ hip, with it, sexually liberated 21st century attitudes that played so well in 1st Century Israel and Judea:

John 8:9-11, when he confronted a crowd of Judafascists about to stone a woman for adultery. And he said “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

9When they heard this, they began to go away one by one, beginning with the older ones, until only Jesus was left, with the woman standing there. 10Then Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are your accusers? Has no one condemned you? 11“No one, Lord,” she answered. “Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Now go and sin no more.”

No, wait. That can’t be right. Here he is calling sex outside of marriage a sin. Cool hipster Jesus couldn’t have possibly thought this. And he tells her to “go and sin no more?”

Not according to my Al Sharpton “Bible Lite,” now with 50% fewer commandments. The one me and Shannon Dingle who is NOT a white supremacist colonizer adopting black children for the same evil purposes as ACB. In my ASV he tells her to go and continue to screw like a horny rabbit but do a better job of hiding it from the neighbors.

The MFM loves this type of Christian.

Let’s look at the question a minute. She is after all queen of the run-on sentence. “since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?”

We have three questions: All predicate on “since you became a legal adult” Question one: Have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors? Question two: Possibly related, possibly not. It is a separate question entirely. “(Implied Have you)”committed any verbal or physical harassment? Question three: (Implied ‘have you committed an) “assault of a sexual nature?”

They are going to come up with clerks and whatnot who say that she verbally or physically harassed them, probably for not doing their job. She likely even *gasp* fired them.

it’s a real shame chuck barris isn’t around anymore–can you imagine–” here’s mazie hirono with her impression of an honorable US senator! “—gong, gong, gong

Should have told Mental Mazie that her sex life was normal and she buys cucumbers to make salads.

when they go low, mazie goes lower

does she openly advocate for releasing the names of the congressional slush fund pay off list?

Hironi is in the same pathetic league as Alexandra Cortez. Which is one step beneath above Kamala Harris.

Can we kick Hawaii out of our country? Between her and the Hawaiian judge they’ve become a huge liability to freedom.

Of course she hadn’t but if i had to be on the receiving end of such conduct, I’d have ACB do it or take the bullet instead of Hirohito…

“My husband’s said ‘Not now.’ a few times — after all, I’ve only delivered 5 children — but he’s sweet: he always makes it up to me later.”

Isn’t such a question in a public forum with her kids present abuse. She should be taking her up on ethics charges.

All my training would call this that. She could not have ask it in a private forum? Seriously.

.. harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).

(C) Notwithstanding paragraphs (A) and (B), in any matter before the Committee involving
allegations of sexual discrimination, including sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct,
by a Member, officer, or employee within the jurisdiction of the Committee,……

From Rule 412

Rule 412 has been revised to diminish some of the confusion engendered by the original rule and to expand the protection afforded alleged victims of sexual misconduct. Rule 412 applies to both civil and criminal proceedings. The rule aims to safeguard the alleged victim against the invasion of privacy, potential embarrassment and sexual stereotyping that is associated with public disclosure of intimate sexual details and the infusion of sexual innuendo into the fact finding process. By affording victims protection in most instances, the rule also encourages victims of sexual misconduct to institute and to participate in legal proceedings against alleged offenders.

    MarkSmith in reply to MarkSmith. | October 13, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    Some should question her about rule 412 and if what Hirono did would be in violation. Could you ask that in an interview for a job?

    What gives her the power to do that. It was abuse before and is abuse now.

    How about they be held accountable for their actions.

I wonder how Kamala would have answered that question..

The more I see and listed to ACB, the more impressed I am.
What I like best is how she can explain legal issues. Professors are very special people, but anyone that visits here knows that…

Hirono is a dunce, period.

There should be a Bullshit question flag that has to be raised before Senators can start to ask these stupid questions. That way a nominatee can get their young children out of the room so they don’t have to be exposed to their abusive questioning of their parent.

Barrett’s legal mind and poise is light years ahead of anything you could hope to achieve. If you are not definitive in an answer to that question you open yourself up for further probing. When the policeman asks “Have you had anything to drink tonight Sir” and you say “just a beer” you have just given the Officer probable cause to investigate further.

This question should be asked of every one in Congress

Few could pass this one

Hirono is a disgusting example of a human being.
