The Tennessean Editorial: Mayor Megan Barry Must Resign for Nashville’s Sake (VIDEO)


The Tennessean, the liberal newspaper of record of Nashville, TN who endorsed the mayor, is now asking her to resign. Mayor Megan Barry’s extramarital affair has not only been an embarrassment to Nashville and herself, has caused another marriage to go to divorce, but also most likely broke laws and her own ethics standards. There are four current investigations into the actions of Mayor Barry, one of which is looking into there was misappropriation of funds where her boy toy, now retired Metro Nashville Police Department Sgt. Rob Forrest, was paid tax payer dollars and claimed to have been working when having their affair.

A leader must put the interests and the needs of the people she serves above her own.

We thought Nashville Mayor Megan Barry was doing just that.

However, it has become abundantly clear in recent weeks that this is not the case after the revelation of her affair with her subordinate and former head of security, retired Metro Nashville Police Department Sgt. Rob Forrest.

This is a confounding and disappointing situation:

How he could rack up more than $170,000 in overtime pay over three years, which included extended domestic and overseas trips with her alone and overtime charges in Nashville for hours after the mayor’s calendar showed official events of the day had ended.

How her Chief Operating Officer Rich Riebeling let the Mayor’s Office approve and pay for security detail travel requests – and how those trips grew from one with just Barry and Forrest alone to nine more after Chief of Staff Debby Dale Mason started supervising those requests.

How despite promises of cooperation with authorities and transparency with the public, Barry and her administrative team have only done so when forced to. Several public records requests are still unfulfilled with the mayor’s office citing a “deliberative process” exemption.

On Feb. 4, the Sunday after Barry confessed to her affair publicly, the Tennessean Editorial Board chose to rebuke her in an editorial entitled “Megan Barry betrayed Nashville.”

The truth of the matter is, Tennessee may be a red state, but Nashville is as liberal as it gets. Mayor Megan Barry thinks she is just going to go on business as usual. However, that is far from the case. What Mayor Barry has not figured out because she is surrounded by “yes” individuals is that it is the LEFT that is now against her and her political career is over. I personally know people who actually voted and campaigned for Mayor Barry and they want her gone. Even women on the LEFT think she is an embarrassment. We have not even got to the possible crimes that she has committed where her boy toy security guard was paid a ridiculous amount of overtime while having this affair. Rob Forrest was on something, I don’t believe it was the job. All things considered, when the liberal newspaper of Nashville comes out against the liberal mayor that they endorsed … MEGAN, HAVE SOME DIGNITY WITH WHAT IS LEFT AND RESIGN.

Megan Barry has debased her leadership position, acting selfishly and deceitfully for nearly two years in a secret affair with her head of security.

She shocked and angered the community. She tore apart two families.

This would not be any of our business if she were an ordinary citizen. And, to be clear, the relationship between Barry and former Metro Nashville Police Sgt. Robert Forrest Jr. was consensual. It was not sexual harassment.

The Tennessean endorsed her in 2015. We commended Barry, a Democrat and former corporate ethics and compliance executive, for her empathy, her inclusion and her accessibility.

So Much for Credibility … Beverly Young Nelson, Roy Moore Accuser Now Says She Added Notes Below Moore’s Yearbook Signature


ARE YOU KIDDING ME … Beverly Young Nelson, a woman who has accused Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexual misconduct and claims she is sickened by Moore’s lies now says she made her own notes below a yearbook signature she claims was made by Moore. WHAT?!? Who is the liar? So first Nelson says Moore signed the year book and used it as proof that she knew Moore, now says she made additions to the year book, so called notes. Why in the hell would she have added notes? A better question is why she didn’t admit that when she first made the accusations against Moore and why her attorney, Gloria Allred, didn’t do the same. During the interview with ABC News  Nelson did not clarify what notes she made in the yearbook or when she made them. Why not. wouldn’t that have been easy to do and a rather easy follow up question by ABC? Unless you don’t want to know.  Roy Moore tweeted Friday, “Now she herself admits to lying.”

So just how much did she alter in the year book and why? Maybe this woman needs a lie detector test? And why didn’t she state this at the outset? Because she never thought anyone would question her accusations, that’s why. The “DA” was not signed by Moore, he was not the DA at the time this was supposed to have taken place. Those were the initials of his assistant when they signed his signature for Moore. But how would Beverly Young Nelson have ever known that? The answer is, she wouldn’t have when she conveniently added that to her year book. What a crock.

Beverly Young Nelson Notes

A woman who has accused Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexual misconduct says she made her own notes below a yearbook signature she claims was made by Moore.

Beverly Young Nelson, who has accused Moore of sexually assaulting her decades ago when she was 16 years old, told ABC News in a Friday interview that she made notes underneath Moore’s alleged yearbook signature, but defended the veracity of the message itself.

“Beverly, he signed your yearbook?” ABC News reporter Tom Llamas asked.

“He did sign it,” Nelson replied.

“And you made some notes underneath?” Llamas followed up.

“Yes,” she answered.

When Nelson accused Moore of sexual assaulting her after offering her a ride home from work, she produced a high school yearbook she says was signed by Moore as proof that she knew him at the time.

More from Patterico’s Pontifications of the accuser’s attorney Gloria Allred trying to spin her client’s lies.

Take a good listen to how accuser’s attorney Gloria Allred is answering the questions as to whether Judge Roy Moore signed the year book. She never says yes she did. Yes she saw him sign it. Sorry, this is BS. We all know now what the “DA” means.  It has nothing to do with the title of District Attorney.

Conservative Radio Talk Show Host Mark Levin Discusses the Allegations Against Judge Roy Moore and Asks, “Why Now?”


Take a good listen to Mark Levin laying out the facts of the case that have been leveled against Judge Roy Moore. Before we jump to conclusions, let’s analyze the accusations at hand. What is up with the timing of this story? Are we really supposed to believe that the WAPO just learned of this news or were they holding on to it for an October surprise? Or in this case because of a special election for Senate in December, a November surprise.

Listen to Levin’s analytical approach. No one knows the truth, these are accusations that are 40 years old. This is not a dirty little secret like the Harvey Weinstein sexual assaults that the MSM helped cover up. This is a shocking event.

We are a victim’s right site; however, I learned a long tome ago during the Duke Lacrosse Rape allegations to not jump to conclusions. How do we find out the truth before the special election? The truth is, we can’t.

From Mark Levin:

Whether innocent or guilty the problem with the Roy Moore accusation is that there is no way to resolve the issue one month before the election. The timing of this makes it impossible to sort through the facts and find the truth. Also, the Washington Post reported that the 4 women didn’t come forward, the Washington Post found them. This whole thing doesn’t smell right. This story was planted and perfectly timed in their hopes to doom Moore’s campaign. We don’t know anything more than what the Washington Post has told us. How did the Post even know there were 4 women, who they were, and how to contact them? You don’t just hear that, especially since the women didn’t know each other. The Post was fed this information by someone or some group. Also, Mitch McConnell is asking Roy Moore to step aside if he is guilty of the accusations against him. You have Bob Menendez a sitting U.S. Senator who is on trial for corruption charges. Why is it that Republicans don’t demand his resignation? Isn’t it amazing that Republicans knew what to say right on cue? They are ready to recruit Luther Strange as a write-in guy.

Liberal Media Accuses AL Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore of Illicit Advances on 14 Year Old Girl in 1979 … Moore Denies Charges


roy moore-sex-accusations

From the liberal WAPO comes the following bombshell, accusations that Alabama HOP Senate candidate Judge Moore of dating a 14 year-old girl in 1979. Judge Moore served on the Alabama Supreme court. The Alabama judge won the Republican senate primary to replace Jeff Sessions in September by defeating the GOP’s establishment candidate. Roy Moore is hardly a new comer and has been controversial for years. Now, just one one before a special election to elect the Alabama senator to replace Jeff Sessions comes this bombshell. A story that is 4 decades old. If the accusations are true, I will ask, why now? If they are not, I will ask the same question, why now?

Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.

It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.

“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

UPDATE I: Judge Moore denied the accusations and blamed the seedy Democrat Party in Alabama and has called this story fake new. Judge Roy Moore released the following statement:

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Today, the Judge Roy Moore Campaign for U.S. Senate issued a statement responding to yet another baseless political attack by the Washington Post, a paper that has endorsed Judge Moore’s opponent. Moore campaign chair Bill Armistead released the following statement on Thursday afternoon:

“Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today’s Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake. National liberal organizations know their chosen candidate Doug Jones is in a death spiral, and this is their last ditch Hail Mary.

“The Washington Post has already endorsed the Judge’s opponent, and for months, they have engaged in a systematic campaign to distort the truth about the Judge’s record and career and derail his campaign. In fact, just two days ago, the Foundation for Moral Law sent a retraction demand to the Post for the false stories they wrote about the Judge’s work and compensation. But apparently, there is no end to what the Post will allege.

“The Judge has been married to Kayla for nearly 33 years, has 4 children, and 5 grandchildren. He has been a candidate in four hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief justice. He has been a three-time candidate for local office, and he has been a national figure in two ground-breaking, judicial fights over religious liberty and traditional marriage. After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they would have been made public long before now.

“Judge Roy Moore is winning with a double-digit lead. So it is no surprise, with just over four weeks remaining, in a race for the U.S. Senate with national implications, that the Democratic Party and the country’s most liberal newspaper would come up with a fabrication of this kind.

“This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation.”

On Thursday, Judge Moore called the allegations by the Post “completely false and a desperate political attack.”

UPDATE II: Roy Moore calls allegations against him ‘completely false.’

Moore denied knowing Leigh Corfman, who alleged she had a sexual encounter with Moore when she was 14 years old, according to The Washington Post.

“Allegations of sexual misconduct with her (Corfman) are completely false.” Moore said. “I believe they are politically motivated. I believe they are brought only to stop a very successful campaign, and that’s what they’re doing.”

Moore backer and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon compared the allegations against the Republican Senate candidate to the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape that was released during the 2016 election.

If this story turns out not to be true, then stories like this should never be believed again.

Flashback – Barbara Walters on ‘The View’ Scolds Corey Feldman For Exposing Hollywood Sexual Abuse in 2013 (VIDEO)


From 2013 comes the interview below from The View, see below video. As actor Corey Feldman is telling the sordid tales of pedophilia in the acting business and Hollywood, all Barbara Walters can do is be more concerned with Hollywood’s reputation, rather than child exploitation. She replied to Feldman’s terrible claims, ”You’re damaging an entire industry.” UNREAL. Hmm. this the media was not covering up for this disgusting and criminal behavior? I guess Barbara was more worried about her meal ticket than children.

 Barbara Walters was more concerned with Hollywood’s reputation than Corey Feldman’s allegations of sexual abuse against him as a child.

In a recently resurfaced “The View” interview from 2013, Walters shoots back at Feldman’s story of pedophilia in the business, declaring, “You’re damaging an entire industry.”
