Can Cindy McCain be sued for her false human trafficking allegation?

In short, Cindy McCain called the cops on a mother because she didn’t look like her daughter. I am Hispanic and my son doesn’t look anything like me, because my wife is Caucasian and my son looks like her.
Being confronted and questioned by police is a very stressful situation for both parent and child, and we should not allow White ipeople (Or any person) to just sic the cops on us because we look different from our kids.
Cindy McCain is a racist

National Organization for Women also called for Keith Ellison to drop out of AG race

I read here that NOW (National Organization for Women) is calling for Justin Fairfax to resign due to an allegation of rape..
The organization also demanded that Keith Ellison drop out of the AG race that he later won.
The accuser in that case said she had video, but later said it was deleted by a hacker.
Their standard for guilt seems very low.

Dana Milbank: Trump is the one who needs to apologize the most

I found this column great:

Asked once about clearing up various falsehoods, such as claiming President Barack Obama tapped his phone, Trump replied, “Why do you say that I have to apologize?” Told that he could boost his legal argument for his travel ban by disavowing his anti-Muslim campaign rhetoric, he replied: “There’s no reason to apologize.”

On the other hand, he has demanded apologies from, among others, Hillary Clinton, Warren, bearish forecasters, the “fake news” media, CNN, ESPN and the cast of “Hamilton.” He has hailed an apology the New York Times didn’t offer him. And he expressed jealousy that ABC apologized to Valerie Jarrett for Roseanne Barr’s racist remarks but not for “the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC.”

Trump’s few apologies tend to be ironic: for bringing jobs back too quickly, for calling women beautiful, for the “terrible pain and suffering” Democrats caused Brett Kavanaugh, for insulting the real Pocahontas by calling Warren that name.

For Trump, apologizing is weakness. After years of mocking Obama’s “apology tour,” Trump boasted at a campaign event a year ago: “Last eight years, we’ve seen a lot of apologizing. Not any longer. We don’t apologize.”

My opinion of Vanessa Tyson's allegation against Justin Fairfax

I've always thought that the following factors would help the cause of a sexual assault victim.

1) Filling a police report
2) Did she sustain injuries during the alleged assault?
3) If the alleged victim chose not to file a police report, did she text friends not long after the encounter?
4) Did the alleged victim speak out against the alleged aggressor before he became famous?

In her statement, Ms. Tyson made it clear that she did not file a police report.
She makes it clear that she "first began telling friends about the assault" after learning that Mr. Fairfax was running for Lieutenant Governor in 2017.

In light of the absolute absence of proof or contemporaneous corroboration, I cannot believe Ms. Tyson at this point.
I would support Fairfax for Governor of Virginia.

Update: Fairfax says she stayed in touch with him for months after the incident. Tyson didn't say that in her statement, but if it's true, I will change my opinion from "I don't see evidence" to "She's straight up lying"

Northam vs. Republican governor

If you knew that the final result of Ralph Northam's resignation would be a Republican Governor in Virginia, what would you prefer? That Northam resign or stay?

Tulsi Gabbard refuses to tell NBC reporter whether Assad is our enemy or friend


There is more. In her interview, Gabbard said that a recent NBC News analysis finding she's Russian media's favorite has been "debunked". It wasn't.

Newly unearthed video shows Trump 'meeting with Russians in Moscow in 1995' over 'building project'

Source: Independent UK

The former mayor of Moscow has confirmed Donald Trump met with officials in Russia in the 1990s to discuss a possible building project after archival footage of the meeting was posted online.

The video, allegedly aired by Russian state television in 1995, shows the US president meeting with members of the former mayor’s administration.

“Trump was in Moscow,” Yury Luzhkov, the mayor of Moscow from 1992 through 2010, told the Interfax news agency. “He had contacts…on matters related to the construction of the Okhotny Ryad underground mall on Manezh Square.”

The video adds new insight into Mr Trump’s business dealings in Russia well before the 2016 presidential election. It had previously been reported he visited Moscow in 1996 — a year after his alleged meeting with the former mayor’s administration — when he announced plans to invest upwards of $250m into the city.

Warning: Tonight pundits will say Trump was Presidential

Trump's speech writers wrote something cute and bipartisan for him to read tonight.
Trump will read it and then he will call people names on Twitter immediately afterward.
Pundits will declare this day "The day Trump became President" as he "acted Presidential".

Be ready to fight back against the mainstream media bullshit.
