And now CBS CEO allegations, as CBS stock plummets.
I don't understand any of this. I mean, I "get" that companies are scrambling to cover their asses, and it's not the law costing jobs so much as the fear that they "might" be founded, and how it would look if they didn't take immediate action, but... Whatever happened to "slander/libel"? It used to be, if you claimed someone wiped their ass in the stall without proof, they'd sue you for defamation. So why aren't the accused fighting back with lawsuits, as they have for decades?
Unless the proof exists in every single case, and these people are being blackmailed? I suppose it's possible, but that's a conspiracy in and of itself.. Who would have access to proof of every single celebrity and high powered persons sexual misconducts?
I've seen some on the left pushing a theory that Michael Cohen's lawyer is now walking back his claims that Cohen was going to testify that Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting because Trump had people threaten him lol.

I suspect many, many businesses are either fronts for laundering and other activities.
This is based on learning how, once upon a time, a guy from New York, in a suit, with a ton of money bought just about every small business in town. The old timers talk about it all the time, how they really didn't want to sell yet, asked for some ridiculous amount, dragged their feet any way they can, and they were just offered too much to not take it. Of course, they all assume he was a "wise guy" representative.
Could also have been a Wall Street or big business success story with deep pockets buying the small timers out, I guess. Just because a guys rich doesn't mean they're a gangster..
The "national conversation" is a fraud. Collision between big media, government, education, ect ect.
This includes key "operatives" on both "sides". "Rabble rousers", or "actors".
The general public is duped into believing the only talking points are the ones they hear about every day. No one ever asks what ISN'T being discussed. (Ever hear about pro life liberals? They do exist. No one ever talks about them.
Pro choice conservatives also exist. You never hear about them.)
If aliens came down and gave us a utopia where all needs were met, all problems solved, and money having no value due to nothing anyone anywhere needs or wants, I believe there would be a lot of unhappy people.
Because some humans need to dominate other humans. With no way to do this, you'd end up with many frustrated "wanna he's", who fancied themselves as masters of the universe..
"I know it's common practice to pick from insiders, but the government shouldn't be run like a crime family.
.....poor choice of words."
Chuckled. because I'm highly suspicious that our government is, in fact, run by crime families. I mean, think about it, they infiltrated the unions because of the money potential. Why not the government? They have the funding, they have a support structure, and anyone can run.
If I was a crime boss, I'd try and invest in politics.
