Believe Women? Stacey Abrams Backs Up Joe Biden During Sexual Assault Allegations Against Him

Published

on

On April 28, 2020, failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams defended former President Joe Biden when questioned about sexual assault allegations for Tara Reade, a former legislative aide for the then-senator.

Reade claims that Biden allegedly sexually assaulted her in a “secluded part of Capitol Hill in 1993” according to a report from The Hill.

“I believe that women deserve to be heard and I believe they need to be listened to, but I also believe that those allegations have to be investigated by credible sources,” Abrams said on CNN’s Don Lemon. Abrams is a favorite for receiving the vice presidential nominee for the Democrat Party in 2020.

“The New York Times did a deep investigation and they found that the accusation was not credible,” she continued. “I believe Joe Biden.”

The Times sustained that they found “no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden” but didn’t reach a conclusion regarding the veracity of Reade’s allegations.

In 2019, Reade was one of numerous women who stepped up and said that Biden’s long history of feeling up women had made them uncomfortable.

In March, she alleged for the first time that Biden had sexually assaulted her. Lynda LaCasse, a former neighbor of Reade’s, stated earlier this week that she remembered Reade talking to her about the story of the alleged assault incident. Reade’s brother, Collin Moulton, claims that she told him that Biden “had his hand under her clothes at some point” on a prior occasion.

Reade asserts that she confronted other Biden aides about the incident at the time, but the aides that she mentioned have gone public saying that Reade never brought up the allegation with them. Reade also recounted that she filed a complaint with the human resources office in the Senate about the sexual assault incident. However, reporters have failed to find the complaint at this juncture. Reade asserts that the complaint is in Biden’s Senate archives at the University of Delaware. That said, the university has announced that it won’t release the former vice president’s records until he has exited from public life.

Biden’s campaign has strongly denied Reade’s allegations, but the former vice president has not gone public about the comments.

“Vice President Biden has dedicated his public life to changing the culture and the laws around violence against women,” deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said to The Hill on a previous occassion. “He authored and fought for the passage and reauthorization of the landmark Violence Against Women Act. He firmly believes that women have a right to be heard — and heard respectfully. Such claims should also be diligently reviewed by an independent press. What is clear about this claim: It is untrue. This absolutely did not happen.”

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand defended Biden on April 28 by saying “when we say believe women, it’s for this explicit intention of making sure there’s space for all women to come forward to speak their truth, to be heard.”

If the U.S. had a more honest mainstream media, they would be absolutely grilling Biden for these allegations.

Alas, we don’t live in that kind of an environment.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
