Donald Trump, the sexual victim of Gloria Allred

Donald Trumps stands accused of sexually harassing innocent women.  When evidence is demanded, the women merely whimper that they are victims of society.  Its a no win for Trump; he is cast as either a victimizer of women, or supporting the society that victimizes women. 

Democratic lawyers will tell you to look for a pattern of behavior to discover the exploiter of women.  The lawyers say that so many women are coming out of the woodwork accusing Trump shows the pattern exists.  None of these women fielded a complaint at the time of the alleged harassment, none of them ever brought legal action until this moment when they could do the most harm.

There is no consistency, except that the women have all been unable to do anything to substantiate their allegations.  Maybe it isn't Mr Trump's behavior at all.  Maybe its the Democratic Party's attack mode that has the unsavory consistency.

Gloria Allred, Democratic civil rights attack lawyer, was involved in setting up the attack against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain in 2012.  Remember the allegations Cain faced, saying he molested women?  Those charges never resulted in any sort of legal action -- nothing ever happened, once Cain was out of the political picture.

Gloria Allred is back, this time accusing the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, , saying he molested women?  Those charges never resulted in any sort of legal action -- nothing ever happened, until it was politically opportune.


So there is a consistency.  Allred’s involvement in Trump accusations a sure sign charges are worthless.

All the ingredients are here. We have a potentially powerful politician, a hopelessly flimsy accusation of sexual misconduct and a predictable media, desperate to fill broadcast hours. Was there really ever any doubt that alleged civil rights attorney Gloria Allred would get involved?

The case suits her method of operation perfectly. There’s a female accuser levying a nebulous, antiquated charge against a male who holds A) wealth, B) power and C) media attention. No charge was levied when the supposed event took place, which is great news, since it makes it that much easier for the attorney to cook up a vague, yet damaging, complaint.

Once the charge is leveled, usually at a televised press conference rather than via a legal filing, she lines up interviews with anyone who will give her a few minutes to rant. Often, she won’t even bother taking her clients to court, preferring instead to do battle over the airwaves in an attempt to force settlements via the court of public opinion.

It doesn’t matter if her appearances go well. If her claims are refuted, she doesn’t care. The media blitz is solely designed to put pressure on the target. If they fail to pay out, Allred appears in front of every imaginable camera, assailing her victim until such time as her client receives a check, reality show or both.

Think of it as a sort of high-tech, FCC-approved blackmail.

Allred’s practice looks less like a legal endeavor, and more like a fly-by-night PR firm for get-rich-quick schemers and aspiring reality show stars. Her clients, most of whom occupy the lowest rung on the credibility ladder, are mostly failures, desperate to latch on to, and steal, success and lucre from others.

Donald Trump needs to keep in mind that Allred’s methods almost always require capitulation to succeed. Assuming there’s no Clintonesque stained dress waiting in the wings, he should stand and fight.

It’s time to pour some salt on the Democratic leeches.  Vote for Trump
