    Ron Sullivan is the defense attorney for Harvey Weinstein. His firing set off a wave of scholars coming to his defense, but did Harvard do the right thing in firing him?

    President Donald Trump has posthumously pardoned boxer Jack Johnson for violating the Mann Act; that is, driving his white girlfriend across state lines. Trump "signed into law the bipartisan Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking (FOSTA), which websites accountable for any sex trafficking related content posted by users."

    huffingtonpost.com/entry/jack-johnson-t...

    The Huffingtong Post op-ed does bring up a serious question about the Myth of Human Trafficking. Laws like the Mann Act and Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA) are policing prostitutes, women of color and forcing to them to go further underground. FOSTA-SESTA shut down Backpage, a website which sex workers say helped them by being on the look-out for potentially violent customers. Is it time for the liberal community to re-think the term human trafficking?

    I don't think Washington Examiner would have a strong motivation to lie, despite its conservative biases. I used to read Weekly Standard and Liberty and the source shouldn't be discredited just because of its political views. If it was a general election between Kamala and Donald Trump then I'd vote for Kamala. But with the presidential election coming up next year I'm going to look at her past record because if we just ignore it, it's going to be brought up by her opponents on the campaign trail. I think we all know what happened with Mike Nifong.

    A Washington Examiner article brings up candidate Harris's record.

    washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/kamala-h...

    The article mentions, "In 2010, a judge found then-San Francisco District Attorney Harris’ office violated defendants’ rights by hiding damaging information about a police drug lab technician and was indifferent to demands that it account for its failings. It resulted in over 600 drug cases being dismissed." And as California Attorney General, "her office opposed legislation requiring her office to independently investigate fatal police shootings." Over 600 cases being dismissed.

    Danny O'Connor just netted 190 votes in Franklin County. Looks like this race is getting tighter.

    But is the Green Party slicing votes off of Democrats? This Green Party candidate is a certified nut. In the article, Joe Manchik thinks he's "a descendent of aliens from the Pleiades star cluster." I'm concerned because these useless candidates could wind up hindering the Blue Wave in this year's mid-terms.

    Joe Manchik netted 1,127 votes, which those votes could easily have gone to Danny O'Connor. In an election which only 1,766 votes separates the two did the Green Party just cost the Democrats a chance to win in Ohio?

    I would rather have Joe Manchin in the Senate than a Republican like Patrick Morrisey. Manchin has fought to protect coal miners pensions from Wall Street privatization while Morrisey would vote to privatize it leaving thousands of retired coal miners penniless.

    Alan Dershowitz is trying to be the center of attention. He puts himself into the fray in every controversial subject of the day which often times contradicts what he stands for and be a defender of. This defender of civil liberties has defended torture in the past so that tells you all you need to know about Alan. He's essentially making the case for absolute despotism in his latest defense of Trump. He's also a plagiarist.

    I blame Bernie or busters more than Stein because there is verifiable proof that more than enough Bernie to Donald voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin handed Donald the Presidency.

    However, Stein shouldn't get off scot-free because enough crazy far lefties hated Hillary so much that they threw their vote away and voted for someone who stood ZERO chance of winning.

    I was a Bernie volunteer and, after he lost, I went over to Hillary Clinton and did phonebanking work for her. So you shouldn't lump all Bernie voters in the same boat.
