Of Course: Allegations of a Pattern of Sexual Harassment and Actual Rape at the DOJ, and of Course All the Attendant Cover-Ups

Nothing but straight-arrow professionals who eat, drink, and piss justice.

"They Allowed It": A Justice Department Employee Said She Was Raped By A Senior Official. New Documents Show A Pattern Of Harassment At The Department.

Documents and interviews reveal new details about a pattern of sexual harassment by a senior Justice Department official, and what the department did -- and did not do -- in the year since he resigned.

WASHINGTON — In December 2018, the Justice Department’s inspector general dropped a bombshell: Investigators had “substantiated” allegations that a senior DOJ official was a repeat sexual harasser.

The official, who had retired by that point, harassed five women under his chain of command, the inspector general announced. One woman reported that she was not only harassed, but also sexually assaulted. Another woman reported that she was pressured into having sex to get a promotion.

Few details were available at the time. The inspector general's summary of the investigation was barely two pages.

But now BuzzFeed has gotten hold of the full report, and it's filled with previously-unreported allegations.

The Deep State is a guild that protects even rapists. Once you're in, you're in.

Let's cut to the chase - every DC bureaucracy is corrupt to the core and beyond reform. The notion of the "rank and file" is a myth - at best, they do as they're told in return for a pension. They're just as much part of the problem as the leadership.

No exceptions. Yes - the Pentagon is corrupt as fuck, we get a taste of that whenever we hear tidbits about procurement. All Federal Law Enforcement is corrupt as hell. Every cabinet level agency is a cluster-fuck. Every. Single. One.

If we knew all the truth - I'm willing to bet a paycheck that public opinion would freak the fuck right out and demand an end to them all.

So ... the $64,000 question. At the end of the day, is the ruling class going to agree to disagree - because they just can't stand the thought of all these structures going away ? And how many here would rather not know how deep the rot goes ... because it just feels better assuming that the college-educated suits with guns and the generals with all the shiny medals are more or less still the good guys ?

I just learned that "Irish Wolfhounds" are so named because they were actually used to hunt and kill...wolves! That's how badass they are. Or were. The original Irish Wolfhound breed actually went extinct after they literally killed off ALL the wolves in ireland, and were no longer needed. Apparently the current dogs called "Irish wolfhounds" are a recent attempt to recreate the breed, though I;m sure sure exactly how. Perhaps by "backbreeding" - -trying to tease out attributes by crossbreeding various mutts that contained some real Irish Wolfhound DNA.

Barry wasn't a Bond Villain. He didn't bring DC over to the Dark Side in eight years.

Just like all these agencies weren't Heroes during Reagan, then Villains during Clinton, then Heroes again during Bush, only to be Villains once more during Obama. Hell, pro-wrestlers didn't switch from Face to Hell that many times. Why does anyone believe the FBI, CIA, DOJ, and such do ?

What did I say above ? The idea that bureaucracies can't be controlled is disturbing to some. It means - quite literally - that you can't save society by building powerful entities. The more powerful the entity, the faster it gets out of control.

These agencies aren't bad because of Obama - and they aren't bad because the right people weren't put in charge or the right oaths weren't taken. They're bad because that's what big entities do - they take on a life of their own. They preserve themselves above all other things.

At the dog park we used to frequent there was a guy that had two elk hounds, they were brothers. They entered and exited the dog park by jumping over the four foot fence. They made the jump from a standing start, no running or start steps, just walked up and went over with room to spare.

They also worked together to "hunt" the other dogs in the dog park. They never hurt any dogs but they would single a dog out, separate it from the others and work it.

I knew law enforcement officers were afforded early retirement privileges, but assumed Aponte would not be under any less stringent rules than McCabe, who was denied retirement a day or so prior to retirement, immediately before his 50th bday. Think someone offered him the Early Out option to get rid of him and he wisely took it. But, Aponte would not even have been 50 yet, until last month. They pulled major strings w his age. Probably put him on Admin Leave until his bday.

278 "The last wolf in Ireland was killed in Co. Carlow in 1786. It is thought to have been killed at Myshall, on the slopes of Mount Leinster by a pack of wolfdogs kept by a Mr Watson of Ballydarton. The wolfhounds that remained in the hands of a few families who were mainly descendants of the old Irish chieftains were now symbols of status rather than used as hunters, and these were said to be the last of their race.

Thomas Pennant (1726-179 reported that he could find no more than three wolfdogs when he visited Ireland. During the 1836 meeting of the Geological Society of Dublin, Dr. Scouler presented the "Notices of Animals which have disappeared from Ireland", with the wolfdog mentioned.

Modern wolfhound

Captain George Augustus Graham (1833-1909) of Rednock House, Dursley, Gloucestershire was responsible for creating the modern Irish wolfhound breed. He stated that he could not find the breed "in its original integrity" to work with..."

281 I just learned that "Irish Wolfhounds" are so named because they were
actually used to hunt and kill...wolves! That's how badass they are. Or
were. The original Irish Wolfhound breed actually went extinct after
they literally killed off ALL the wolves in ireland, and were no longer
needed. Apparently the current dogs called "Irish wolfhounds" are a
recent attempt to recreate the breed, though I;m sure sure exactly how.
Perhaps by "backbreeding" - -trying to tease out attributes by
crossbreeding various mutts that contained some real Irish Wolfhound
DNA.

Thanks to brothers and their friends who taught me how to brawl as a Southern Belle. I may look nice, but don't push me. Never had a boss who tried anything with me. There was one history teacher, talking to me in his office and bringing in another young teacher, who mourned that I was underage. They did this in front of my naive self. Now I know. pfft

The "use it or lose it" mentality is due to the fact that unspent money gets cut from next year's budget, even if you know that you'll need that money (for example, for a planned expenditure).

Your proposal would just end up with necessary spending being cut by unscrupulous managers to pocket a bonus before they clear out.

Mexico is experiencing the collapse of authority right now. The biggest problem is always the fact that when one authority collapses, a much more brutal one immediately rises to fill the void. It's easy to sink back to a feudal state of affairs where Warlords and various local strong men run everything in their own fiefdoms. That's been the default human government for most of our history.

Yeah what reporting on it did she do after that initial squashing. And was the reporting she did do after the news was already out by others so it's stupid to try to keep it secret?

She's probably pissed that she was a source for O'Keefe. Probably thought she was just venting to one of her fellow liberal stooges.

Well, I hope Mrs Diogenes feel better soon and the test comes back clear.

Funniest story I have about "Honey Do" list is from someone in my congregation. She is a secretary in a public school and they have Thursday and Friday off for teachers convention. She doesn't go to that, but she tells her husband-who will be working all week- that she only has one day off because otherwise he will give her a
"honey do" list for the other day. Apparently she is like Oscar Madison and he is like Felix Unger and he always has a list when she's not working.

That's too soundbitey. The quid pro quo was that Trump expected to deliver on his anti-corruption campaign promises. This is not THE quid pro quo that he was asking for Biden to be investigated, which is what dems are hoping for, and which is not even a crime.
Posted by: flounder, rebel, vulgarian, deplorable, winner at November 05, 2019 04:31 PM (1CjJc)

Again, the quid pro quo was with the Federal bureaucrats not the Ukrainians.

Trump is was holding back the money to Ukraine (which the American bureaucrats wanted to give) until the American bureaucrats agreed to work on investigation in 2016 corruption.

386 301 Let me dispel some bullshit about Irish Wolfhounds.

They are not stupid, they are totally loyal, they don't eat that much, and they are not high maintenance.

Disclaimer, I had 4 at one time and would have 4 more in a heartbeat.
Posted by: Ben Had


Long ago I once found myself (and a friend) invited to sleep over at a house in Ireland (long complicated story) owned by two old gay guys who, once we arrived, I learned were irish Wolfhound breeders. Except they didn't have a "kennel" or any special place for the dogs - -their house WAS the kennel. So they lived there with about 15 or 20 Irish wolfhounds just wandering around inside the house. it was surreal -- they were absolutely huge. When we sat at the dinner table we were surrounded by a dozen or so immense dogs that were taller that we were while seated.

The dogs were all very polite and harmless, though. once one got used to the size/intimidation factor, they were quite friendly.
