BREAKING: Former Top Obama Official Just Arrested By Investigators

Published

on

And in the #metoo front, NBC News is reporting that a former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was accused of grabbing a woman’s behind.

NYPD confirmed that Dr. Thomas Frieden was arrested Friday morning on sex abuse charges and is currently awaiting a court appearance on later this afternoon in connection with the incident that happened on October 20, 2017, at his Brooklyn home.

The woman reported it in July, and he was taken into custody after an investigation. The accuser is said to be a 55-year-old woman who is an acquaintance of Freiden. The woman told police that Freiden grabbed her buttocks.

Frieden, who in the past was also a former New York City health commissioner, is charged with forcible touching, sex abuse, and harassment.

Here is more via CNN:

“Dr. Thomas Frieden, the former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was arrested Friday and charged with forcible touching, according to the New York Police Department.

A law enforcement official told CNN that authorities filed three charges against Frieden stemming from an alleged incident in his home in Brooklyn Heights in October.

Frieden, 57, who left the CDC in January 2017, is expected to appear in front of a judge in Brooklyn Criminal Court to face one count of forcible touching, one count of sex abuse in the third degree and one count of harassment in the second degree, the law enforcement official said.

The law enforcement official said that allegedly, there was a dinner party at Frieden’s home, and as things were wrapping up and people were leaving, Frieden reached over and grabbed the woman without her consent. Both have known each other for several years, the law enforcement official said.

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office interviewed the alleged victim and found her to be credible, the law enforcement official said.

A spokeswoman for Frieden told CNN, “This allegation does not reflect Dr. Frieden’s public or private behavior or his values over a lifetime of service to improve health around the world.”

Frieden was appointed by President Barack Obama as the head of the CDC in 2009, known for coming in and implementing sweeping changes at one of the world’s premier health agencies with an annual budget of $10 billion. He came in at a time of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic and would see the agency through the Ebola crisis in 2014. He had previously served as the New York City health commissioner, known for banning smoking in restaurants and public places and tackling trans fats in the city’s restaurants.

When Obama tapped Frieden for the CDC, the president praised him as “an expert in preparedness and response to health emergencies” who as the New York City health commissioner had been “at the forefront of the fight against heart disease, cancer and obesity, infectious diseases such such as tuberculosis and AIDS, and in the establishment of electronic health records.”

Frieden resigned from the agency on the day President Donald Trump was sworn into office.

After his stint at the CDC, Frieden became the president and CEO of Resolve to Save Lives, a $225 million initiative aimed to save “millions of lives from cardiovascular disease and make the world safer from epidemics,” according to its website.

Jose Castro, president and CEO of Vital Strategies, the parent nonprofit of Resolve to Save Lives, said he was informed in April by Frieden “that a non-work-related friend of his and his family of more than 30 years accused him of inappropriate physical contact.”

“I have known and worked closely with Dr. Frieden for nearly 30 years and have seen first-hand that he has the highest ethical standards both personally and professionally,” Castro said. “In all of my experiences with him, there have never been any concerns or reports of inappropriate conduct.

“Vital Strategies is committed to a workplace that is free of sexual harassment. As such, even though she is not an employee, earlier this month we conducted a thorough investigation by an external expert, which included an in-depth interview with every staff member on the Resolve to Save Lives team to determine whether there are any concerns about inappropriate behavior. This assessment determined there have been no incidents of workplace harassment.

“Vital Strategies greatly values the work Dr. Frieden does to advance public health and he has my full confidence.”

Frieden became New York City’s health commissioner back in 2002 and was well known for his aggressive measures to attack chronic diseases. In an effort to control people back in 2003, New York banned smoking in almost all workplaces, an effort which started a nationwide trend amongst left-leaning areas. In 2006 he continued his reign of control when New York became the first U.S. city to ban restaurants from using artificial trans fats and required eateries of a certain size to advertise calorie on their menus.

Since he was so “efficient” at his job President Barack Hussein Obama tapped Frieden to head the CDC. Frieden led U.S. public health efforts during a range of high-profile national and international health crises. Especially when the Obama administration thought it was a good idea to fly Ebola patients from Africa into the U.S.

Frieden resigned as CDC director in January 2017 as part of the turnover to President Donald Trump’s administration.

A spokesperson for Frieden hasn’t responded to a request for comment. A CDC spokesperson said they had no information about the allegation.

Trump Admin Considers Narrowing Legal Definition Of Gender – Corey Booker In Trouble??

Published

on

...

* By

According to the New York Times, Trump’s administration may redefine the definition of gender, much to the horror of NPCs everywhere.

Seeing as Dem Senator Corey Booker was just accused of sexual assault by a gay man, it’s possible he won’t be able to claim he’s transgender if he comes out of the closet in the future.

The Daily Wire is reporting:

“Judging from the breathless headline in the New York Times, President Trump’s administration is going all out to obliterate transgenderism.

“Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence,” said the Sunday headline.

“The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law,” said the story’s lead.

The piece goes on to say that a series of decisions by the administration of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, “loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs,” which led to “fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept.”

So, in an attempt to clarify the law — and to ease the “fights” — the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking to define sex under Title IX, which is the federal civil rights law that outlaws gender discrimination in education programs.

“The department argued in its memo that key government agencies needed to adopt an explicit and uniform definition of gender as determined ‘on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.’ The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft reviewed by The Times. Any dispute about one’s sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing,” writes the Times.

In its memo, HHS said “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth. The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.”

HHS is expected to present the proposed guidance of to the Justice Department by the end of this year.”

VIDEO: GOP’s New Election Ad Unloads On Democrat Party’s Increasing Threats, Attacks and Mob Violence

Published

...

* By

Democrats have become increasingly violent since the 2016 election. It doesn’t look like they will let up any time soon.

That bodes well for Republicans, though, as many believe that violence from the left is part of the reason Trump was elected.

Finally the GOP is showcasing Dem violence to the country. Make sure everyone sees this!

The Daily Wire reported:

“The Republican National Committee released a new campaign ad on Friday that highlighted the political violence that has occurred against Republicans in recent weeks; the ad comes just as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi endorsed “collateral damage” against conservatives.

The ad comes after several violent attacks have been launched against Republicans in recent days, including:

Suspicious envelope causes ricin scare at Sen. Collins’ home

Dem Operative For Soros-Funded Group Attacked Female GOP Campaign Manager

Two Republican Candidates Attacked While Campaigning In Minnesota

Wyoming GOP Office Set On Fire Less Than Two Days After Opening — Police Say It Was Intentional

Sen. Cory Gardner’s Wife Allegedly Received ‘Beheading’ Video Prior To Kavanaugh Vote

Pelosi, a California Democrat, said earlier this week that if collateral damage happens against those who disagree with the political agenda of the Democratic Party, then “so be it.”

“We have to have total clarity about what we do when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage … whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate …” Pelosi said earlier this week. “I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.”

The Gateway Pundit added:

“The latest Republican Party midterm ad highlights the increasing violence of the Democrat Party.

Democrats decided this year to forego a platform and just threaten, harass, beat and vandalize Republican candidates and property instead.

This ad mentions JUST A FEW of the violent attacks on Republican lawmakers this year. Of course, NOT ONE Democrat leader has called on party faithful to stop their violence. Just this weekend Democrats harassed and threatened Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chou while they were eating out.

Democrats need to call off their thugs before someone gets seriously hurt or killed!”
