7:45 P.M. ‘Inappropriate, humiliating !!! ‘ … Oh BOO FUCKING HOO !!! …

A Liberal MP has called out a Conservative MP for making “humiliating and unwanted” sexual remarks she says caused her great stress in the workplace.Sherry Romanado made the accusations in the House of Commons on a point of order, just hours after Manitoba Conservative MP James Bezan apologized for making an “inappropriate and insensitive” comment in her presence.Romanado, a Quebec ( KBec !!! ) MP and parliamentary secretary to the minister of veterans affairs and associate minister of national defence,​ said the comments were made in May…

“These comments have caused me,” she said.Her office declined to provide more details about the comments. Romanado said she had nothing further to add as she left a meeting of the Commons defence committee late Monday afternoon.

Late this afternoon, Bezan issued a statement detailing his take on the events of May 2, 2017, at a public event at Ottawa City Hall when he was posing for a picture with Romanado and another person….

“While standing for the picture I made an inappropriate and flippant comment by saying,.. ‘This isn’t my idea of a threesome,’ which was intended as a partisan comment about being in a photo with a Liberal member of caucus,” his statement reads. “I realized that this comment was inappropriate and attempted to apologize the following day but was not afforded that opportunity. On May 10, 2017, the chief human resources officer received a formal complaint about his comment from the MP. Bezan said he immediately offered to enter into mediation so he could apologize, but the request was denied…

A subsequent review was launched by HR into the comment, during which Bezan said he apologized in writing.On Aug. 16, 2017, the chief human resources officer (CHRO) confirmed in writing that his report “did not support a claim of sexual harassment” and that no disciplinary action was recommended against Bezan.An email from the officer to Bezan provided to CBC News says: “After careful consideration and discussion with the Whip’s office, I have concluded that, since the Final Report did not support a claim of sexual harassment, remedies beyond the recommendation in the report are not required by the Code,” reads the note provided to CBC News.”This file is therefore considered closed.”

Bezan said he apologized again with an agreement of the two party whips in question, and completed sensitivity training offered by the House of Commons.As a further measure, I agreed to mediation with the member after the CHRO issued his findings and again, apologized to the member.”  Shortly after 11 a.m. today, four hours before Romanado’s statement, Bezan stood to say sorry in the House of Commons.”I have nothing but the greatest respect for this member, for this institution, and I sincerely apologize,” he said ..

Sources tell CBC News that Romanado raised the incident during a Liberal caucus meeting last week. She was shaken and cried as she recounted the incident, and said that it affected her dramatically and affected her ability to do her job !!! …

Late Tuesday Romanado issued a statement calling Bezan out for “never once” personally apologizing to her over the incident. “He never once apologized to me personally despite our working in the same standing committee in the House of Commons, participating on media panels and sitting across from each other in the House,” the statement issued by Romanado’s office said. “There was ample opportunity for him to do so.”

*MORBNOTE ; Methinks she doth protest too much !!! …

OH WAAAAAAH !!! … I’M HURT !!! … HURT !!! …

Back in May, Bezan and Romanado were being photographed together at Ottawa City Hall, along with another person. Bezan, standing for the photo, made a comment he now admits was “inappropriate and flippant” — “This isn’t my idea of a threesome.”

Bezan said he meant the comment as a partisan joke … Romanado said it was an “unwanted and humiliating” sexual remark that is still causing her problems today … “ These comments have caused me great stress and negatively affected my work environment,” she told the Commons on Monday.

*MORBNOTE;  Note the ‘ humiliating ‘ … the ‘ great stress ‘ bullshit !!! … He’s just making a wise crack you stupid bitch !!! … Roll with it … or get over it !!! … Don’t try to sore money or political points over a million times daily flippant remark just can’t come up with a suitable comeback !!! … FUCK !!! this is snowballing !!!…

The incident landed with the chief human resources officer of the House of Commons soon after it happened, and Bezan offered to go into mediation (as the code provides) so that he could apologize. The request was denied.

Well that’s because it lessons the political value of the entire nonsensical subject in the first place !!!…

7:56. A.M. Donald Trump is actually DOING something finally !!! …

Jan21BlogAppalHead

Yesterday , December 6 2017 , President Donald Trump stated that he had decided to ‘ act ‘ on a piece of legislation that was created by a vast majority of senate votes , under then President Bill Clinton , in 1995 !!! … 22 years ago !! … He pointed that out in his speech as well as stating it was ‘ reaffirmed in legislation 6 months ago … Unanimously in the House.

Trump_Jerusalem

Now … Ever since Donny boy was duly elected president , the media seem to be intent on only one thing … Not report the news … But to opine that he is full of shit !!! … After reading the entire article … It is obvious to me that he was totally correct in his statements … Yet the wording from this news outlet HAS to leave a little dig in there to attempt to cast some doubt for weak minded , impressionable voters to grab onto …

This from the PolitiFact news site , that , supposedly , ascertains the accuracy and truthfulness of politician’s statement … From a ‘ bi-partisan ‘ position ;

The Jerusalem Embassy Act “passed Congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority”For this portion of his statement, Trump is on solid ground.In the Senate, the bill passed on Oct. 24, 1995, by a 93-5 margin. Later that day , the House followed suit , passing it by a 374-37 margin.

Let’s see here … 93-5 in the Senate … 374-37 in the House of Representatives … Altogether … 467-42 !!! … I would agree that most certainly qualifies as a ‘ vast ‘ majority !!! … But PolitiFact attempts to cloud the issue somewhat …

The law was “reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months ago.”This part requires more explanation.The non-binding resolution from earlier this year involved “commemorating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem” during the Six Day War in 1967. ( MORBNOTE ; Realize this folks !!! … These two factions have been arguing and killing each other over this for half a century !!! … It’s clear they will not agree !!!… Donald is rightly fed up of the costly stalemate and is attempting to initiate REAL action .) One of its’ provisions specifically referenced the 1995 law. A portion of the 2017 resolution “reaffirms the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 (Public Law 104–45) as United States law, and calls upon the President and all United States officials to abide by its provisions.”On June 5, 2017, the measure passed the Senate by a 90-0 margin.Here’s the caveat: The same resolution that passed the Senate 90-0 also included this provision: The Senate “reaffirms that it is the longstanding, bipartisan policy of the United States government that the permanent status of Jerusalem remains a matter to be decided between the parties through final status negotiations towards a two-state solution.”Did Trump do or say anything contrary to that provision? There’s some disagreement on that.Trump in his remarks offered some language reaffirming the substance of this provision. 

Now 90-0 is a TOTAL majority !!! … Yet again PolitiFact throws in a provision that is something completely separate from Donald’s statement , ignoring his clarifying remarks that went with it !!!…

Specifically, he said, “In making these announcements, I also want to make one point very clear: This decision is not intended, in any way, to reflect a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace agreement. We want an agreement that is a great deal for the Israelis and a great deal for the Palestinians. We are not taking a position of any final status issues, including the specific boundaries of the Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem, or the resolution of contested borders. Those questions are up to the parties involved.”…

To Michael Koplow, policy director of the Israel Policy Forum, this “made clear that his decision doesn’t prejudice final status issues, so it seems to still be consistent with the Senate resolution.”Others, however, contend that an embassy move may imperil future Israeli-Palestinian negotiations over Jerusalem.”Not only is this a reasonable caveat, it is a critical one,” said Samer S. Shehata, a professor and acting director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Oklahoma.

“If you’ve been following the British, French and many of the other reactions to President Trump’s move, almost all note this critical point.”In their public remarks, both French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May made a point of reaffirming the need for future final-status negotiations about Jerusalem, which suggests that they are worried about the impact of Trump’s move in that context.

Macron, in a phone call to Trump before the announcement, “expressed his concern with the possibility that the United States might unilaterally recognize Jerusalem as capital of the state of Israel,” the French government said. “Mr. Macron reaffirmed that the status of Jerusalem must be resolved through peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians, and particularly those relating to the establishment of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security with Jerusalem as their capital.

“May said that she’s “intending to speak to President Trump about this matter. The status of Jerusalem should be determined in a negotiated settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Jerusalem should ultimately form a shared capital between the Israeli and Palestinian states.

“Our rulingTrump said that the Jerusalem Embassy Act “passed Congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority and was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months ago.”He’s right about both pieces of legislation and the margins by which they passed. However, it’s worth noting that the 2017 Senate resolution also reaffirmed that “the permanent status of Jerusalem remains a matter to be decided between the parties through final status negotiations towards a two-state solution” — a position that Trump rhetorically backed in his speech, but that some believe could be endangered by his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the embassy.We rate the statement Mostly True.

Although PolitiFact had pretty much no choice but to admit that the statements were true … They felt the need to throw in the adjective ‘ mostly ‘ … From where I stand , he’s dead on accurate !!! … Right on Donald !!! …

2:39 P.M. Electric Jags ?!!!…

Jaguar Land Rover will offer electric options across its range of sleek sedans and upscale SUVs as the tradition-rich British carmaker pivots toward electric vehicles under pressure from the U.K. and other governments. By 2020, the entire range of Jaguar cars and Land Rover sport utility vehicles will be available in fully electric, plug-in hybrid and so-called mild hybrid variants, Chief Executive Officer Ralf Speth said Thursday in a Bloomberg Television interview with Manus Cranny and Anna Edwards. Underscoring its electric shift, Jaguar will start selling the I-PACE battery-powered performance SUV next year. The company has 25,000 orders for the vehicle already, Speth said.

Authorities in France and the U.K. outlined plans in July to ban the sale of diesel and gasoline cars by 2040 as a means to reduce air pollution and carbon-dioxide emissions, which are linked to global warming. The move is less aggressive than plans by Volvo Car Group. The Swedish brand intends to offer only hybrid or battery versions of its new models as of 2019. The hybrid autos reduce fuel burn by being able to drive short distances or boost performance with the help of electric motors. To showcase the U.K. carmaker’s intent, Speth is unveiling designs for a battery version of Jaguar’s iconic E-Type roadster at the Tata Motors Ltd. division’s tech fair Thursday in London.

Jaguar Land Rover is also presenting a concept for a voice-activated, detachable steering wheel. Dubbed the Sayer, after E-Type designer Malcolm Sayer, the device is part of a futuristic vision in which cars will be used interchangeably with consumers taking personalized steering devices with them. “We are on the brink of the most exciting revolution in mobility in our history,” Speth in a speech opening the fair, which will include panel discussions on millennials’ car ownership, the gender gap in tech recruitment and possibilities in automation.

“We have the ideas to make it liberating, and transform lives, but it will require us all to make profound choices.”
