REBEL BUZZ: Congressional harassment costs taxpayers $17M, PLUS: A voice of sanity in Hollywood

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

Here are three stories the mainstream media tried to ignore this week:

* A bombshell report revealed that Congress paid out $17 million in taxpayer funding for settlements to federal employees, for violations including sexual harassment.

Taxpayers have been unknowingly footing hush money bills for decades, yet the identity of the abusers in Congress often remains secret to the public.

However, we now know the identity of one:

Top congressional Democrat John Conyers paid a female staffer $17,000 in taxpayer funding, after he allegedly fired her because she refused his sexual advances. Conyers is from Michigan, and is the longest serving member in the House.

* While we're on the subject of Conyers, let's look at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's reaction to this scandal.

Pelosi, a symbol of the left, calls herself a feminist. A defender of women.

Yet this weekend Pelosi defended Conyers as an "icon" amid the allegations that he fired a woman on his staff after she refused to engage in sexual activities with him.

But this is hardly the first time Pelosi has defended a sexual predator.

In the 1990s she regularly offered full throated defenses of then-President Bill Clinton, even when he was accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick.

And while she was Speaker of the House, Pelosi ignored sexual harassment by former Democratic congressman Bob Filner, who sexually harassed female veterans who were victims of rape. Abusing his position of power, Filner offered the rape victims "help" in return for "dates."

* Finally: we all know that Hollywood is overwhelmingly liberal. That's why it came as a surprise to hear one famous actor express a view that doesn't fit neatly inside the left-wing thought box.

Denzel Washington is getting backlash from the left after he blamed black-on-black crime on the lack of a strong family unit, rather than on the prison system in the U.S.

Not surprisingly, left-wingers took to Twitter and immediately attacked Washington, calling him a traitor to the black community.

What Washington said was not anti-black at all. The black community, like all Americans, deserve to be lifted up with policies that help promote solid family units and economic stability.

And before we can put uplifting policies in place, we need to honestly and accurately identify the problems.

So many of these so called ICONS have been accused of sexual harrasment and aggressive advances and behaviour that I think they might have to retire the term ICON for a while.

PAUL MCCULLOUGH—-“In defense of Nancy Pelosi, she seems to have Dementia as well.”
Paul, its not dementia, during one of her many facelifts, they mistakenly took part of her brain out.

- Make the taxpayers pay for the sexual misconduct of those in congress. Sounds like the sort of thing we should be surprised about. Sadly, it’s far too unsurprising.

- In defense of Nancy Pelosi, she was always a mindless Democrat shill & now she seems to have dementia as well.

- The Democrats believe it’s racist to talk about black on black crime, or single parent black families, or the exceptionally high number of black babies being aborted, or about how welfare dependency has contributed to all of it.

Sounds Like Denzel Washington is looking for logical solutions to a serious social problem – rather than just seeking personal attention as many in his Industry seem to do.

Now Matt Lauer wants a $30M payout. Probably severance pay.

I wonder how much Canada’s slush fund is for sexual payoffs. Amazing how there hasn’t been a peep out of Cdn. MSM.

Nancy Pelosi, Jimmy Kimmel, Biden, Caine, Colbert, etc etc are a disgrace to Catholicism. If anyone says Christians are delusional, tell them people like Pelosi and Tim Caine etc are the only ones delusional, since they have their own version of Catholicism. Some day they’ll have their own bible, priests (no Nuns) and popes (no caps required here).
(Jimmy Kimmel’s hired comedian who caused the uproar in Church during Roy Moore’s gathering and was removed.)

Liza Rosie it was very refreshing to see Denzel speak up honestly. Good to see the floodgates open , but like you say there will be phonies out for attention , it will be hard to distinguish what is true or not for a while.
Sickening that the taxpayer has paid even one cent for scummy actions of any politician from any party, that is insanity.

I hope more people with a platform stand up the way Denzel Washington has.

I’m glad the perv’s in Washington D.C. are going down. It’s about time. I hope those men who are innocent don’t get caught in the crossfire. This whole thing is kind of distracting from the many other things of the utmost importance to the country and the free world though. As usual many on the left won’t let a good crisis go to waste and feminazis, as well as the Islamic/globalist alliance will use this to paint all men, vilify the patriarchy and indeed western culture as a whole.
