Save America through a Compromise of 2016
Huffington Post - 3 months
My proposal published here on Wednesday, "Hillary Can Be a Hero By Saving America from Trump," calling for a "Compromise of 2016" that would include the Electors choosing someone other than Donald Trump as the next president and the creation of a "National Unity Government" has received far more positive attention than any other piece I have ever written on HuffPo. The confirmation that the CIA has determined that it is "quite clear" that Russian intervention in the American presidential election had the goal of electing Donald Trump makes the achievement of such a grand compromise even more imperative. In July, cartoonist Marc Murphy of the Louisville Courier-Journal perfectly captured the horror that we now face: And now Mr. Trump has chosen Exxon Mobil Corp CEO Rex Tillerson, who has strong ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, as Secretary of State! Trump had previously picked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who is also close to Putin, to be his National Secur ...

God, Racism And The State Of This Election
Huffington Post - 4 months
A friend of mine called this week, a black male, a pastor, charged with inspiring and encouraging his huge congregation even in the midst of this election. He was weeping. "It is so hard," he said. "Who do the ministers talk to for encouragement? The hatred, the name-calling, the outright racism ...it is too much." "And," he said between stifled sobs, "Trump may well win. What then? How do we keep our people going?" The sentiment of my friend is one that I have heard repeatedly. That, and cries from young African Americans, despondent over the unabashed racism of Donald Trump and his millions of followers. What I hear all of the time is, "Trump isn't really the problem. He is who he is. What the problem is all of the people who follow him. How can they do that?" The young African Americans, many of whom have been in the streets fighting for justice in cases of police shootings of unarmed black people, and who have been working to find a way to curb mass incarceration of blac ...

FBI Director James Comey Defied Attorney General With Email Announcement
Huffington Post - 4 months
WASHINGTON ― FBI Director James Comey’s unprecedented decision to insert the bureau into the presidential campaign less than two weeks from Election Day has caused a rift in federal law enforcement. Attorney General Loretta Lynch wanted Comey to follow DOJ protocols and traditions and not reveal the discovery of new emails that might be pertinent to Clinton’s case, The Huffington Post was able to confirm on Saturday, following the account of a Justice Department official in The Washington Post. The U.S. Attorneys’ manual emphasizes the importance of “limited confidentiality” in “ongoing operations and investigations” to safeguard “the rights of victims and litigants as well as the protection of the life and safety of other parties and witnesses.” Julie Werner-Simon, a former federal prosecutor who retired from DOJ in August 2015 after 29 years of service, argues that Comey’s decision to make public an incremental development in the investigation with little clear significanc ...

Three Men Come Up With A Jaw-Dropping Plan For Donald Trump To Win Over Millennial Women
Huffington Post - 5 months
Donald Trump’s campaign is set to launch an aggressive strategy to convince millennial women that he doesn’t want to “grab them by the pussy,” as he boasted about in a 2005 video ― by bringing up the sex scandals around former President Bill Clinton from the 1990s and laying some of the blame at the feet of his wife, Hillary Clinton. “We’re going to turn him into Bill Cosby. He’s a violent sexual predator who physically abuses women who he assaults. And she takes the lead on the intimidation of the victims,” Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon told staff Tuesday, according to Bloomberg Businessweek. The offensive has already started. Just hours before Sunday night’s debate in St. Louis, Trump held a surprise press conference with several women who have accused Bill Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior in the past. On Thursday, those women will appear on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show ― a program that few millennial women watch ― for a one-hour special.  “With rape culture bein ...

The 5 Ways Baby Boomers Changed Sex And Desire Forever
Huffington Post - 5 months
A few years ago, Huff/Post50 ran a post boasting how the Baby Boomer generation changed sex forever and in dramatic ways. In today’s world of broadening acceptance, that post seems like a relic. Do you agree? Here’s what we wrote, edited for updates: Yes, Virginia, there was a time when everyone waited until their wedding night to have intercourse. And perhaps even more shocking: Yes, that’s actually what they called it. For real. Everything about what currently occurs in our bedrooms has completely changed since boomers came of age — including the fact that “what we do in our bedrooms” is no longer only being done in our bedrooms. Sex has spilled over on to our kitchen counters, our beaches and the front seat of our Ferraris if “The Wolf of Wall Street” is to be believed. While boomers may not have invented sex (the way we did the internet), we certainly pushed its envelope and altered the way it is done, with whom, when and where, and even why. Here are five things b ...

Why Tearing Women Down Gives Us A Thrill
Huffington Post - 5 months
A couple years ago, we hated Anne Hathaway. Remember that? Maybe you (specifically) still do. Maybe you (specifically) never did. But it’s true. We hated her big, effortful smile. We hated how she tremulously murmured “it came true” when accepting an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. We hated her molars and uvula, visible thanks to some close camera work as she belted “I Dreamed a Dream” in “Les Misérables,” the film for which she won that Oscar. We hated how she let us see her trying. We hated how she reminded us of our own need to be liked and our own carefully disguised efforts to impress. Jennifer Lawrence, the starlet who tripped over her gown at the Academy Awards and professed her love for junk food ― she was genuine, America’s effortlessly perfect dream bestie. Until she wasn’t. This cycle might feel painfully familiar: We anoint an It Girl, a beloved female icon, then rapidly begin to find things to despise about her. Soon she’s left torn and trampled in ...

Claire McCaskill: It's 'Ironic' Donald Trump Wants To Make Hillary Clinton's Marriage Part Of Campaign
Huffington Post - 5 months
Donald Trump should leave Hillary Clinton’s personal life out of the race ― both because it’s irrelevant and because his own is worse, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said on Sunday. “The American people understand that Hillary Clinton and her marriage is not what’s important in this election,” McCaskill said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And if he really wants to compare his character as it relates to how he has conducted his personal life, over his adult life, with that of Hillary Clinton, even on that score she comes out ahead.” Over the past week, Trump and his surrogates have ramped up attacks on Clinton over her husband, former President Bill Clinton’s, previous infidelity. A favorite method is to praise Trump’s restraint in not talking about the matter. Republicans have warned that going after Hillary over her husband’s affairs could backfire, as McCaskill pointed out. Plus, the thrice-married businessman’s own personal life hasn’t been spotless, nor has his treatment and s ...

    More Details Hide Details Speaking at a Forbes magazine "30 Under 30" summit about her experiences in the aftermath of the scandal, she said, "Having survived myself, what I want to do now is help other victims of the shame game survive, too." She said she was influenced by reading about the suicide of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman, involving cyberbullying and joined Twitter to facilitate her efforts.
    In July 2014, Lewinsky was interviewed on a three-part television special airing on the National Geographic Channel titled The 90s: The Last Great Decade.
    More Details Hide Details The series looked at various events of the 1990s, including the scandal that brought Lewinsky into the national spotlight. This was Lewinsky's first such interview in more than ten years.
    In May 2014, Lewinsky wrote an essay for Vanity Fair magazine titled "Shame and Survival" where she discussed her life and the scandal.
    More Details Hide Details She continued to maintain that the relationship was mutual and wrote that while Clinton took advantage of her, it was a consensual relationship. She added: "I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened." However, she said it was now time to "stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past." The magazine later announced her as a Vanity Fair contributor, stating she would "contribute to their website on an ongoing basis, on the lookout for relevant topics of interest".

Monica's maternal grandfather, Samuel M. Vilensky, was a Lithuanian Jew, and Monica's maternal grandmother, Bronia Poleshuk, was born in the British Concession of Tianjin, China, to a Russian Jewish family.
  • THIRTIES

  • 2009
    Age 35

    In December 2006, Lewinsky graduated with a Master of Science degree.

  • 2005
    Age 31
    By 2005, Lewinsky found that she could not escape the spotlight in the U.S., which made both her professional and personal life difficult.
    More Details Hide Details She stopped selling her handbag line and moved to London to study social psychology at the London School of Economics.
  • 2004
    Age 30
    After Clinton's autobiography My Life appeared in 2004, Lewinsky said in an interview with the British tabloid Daily Mail: He could have made it right with the book, but he hasn't.
    More Details Hide Details He is a revisionist of history. He has lied. … I really didn't expect him to go into detail about our relationship. … But if he had and he'd done it honestly, I wouldn't have minded. … I did, though, at least expect him to correct the false statements he made when he was trying to protect the Presidency. Instead, he talked about it as though I had laid it all out there for the taking.
  • TWENTIES
  • 2003
    Age 29
    Lewinsky was the host of the reality television dating program, Mr. Personality, on Fox Television Network in 2003, where she advised young women contestants who were picking men hidden by masks.
    More Details Hide Details Some Americans tried to organize a boycott of advertisers on the show, in protest of Lewinsky capitalizing on her notoriety. Nevertheless, the show debuted to very high ratings, and Alessandra Stanley wrote in The New York Times that "after years of trying to cash in on her fame by designing handbags and other self-marketing schemes, Ms. Lewinsky has finally found a fitting niche on television." The ratings, however, slid downward each successive week, and after the show completed its initial limited run, it did not reappear. The same year she appeared as a guest on the programs V Graham Norton in the UK, High Chaparall in Sweden, and The View and Jimmy Kimmel Live! in the U.S.
  • 2002
    Age 28
    In March 2002, Lewinsky, no longer bound by the terms of her immunity agreement, appeared in the HBO special, "Monica in Black and White", part of the America Undercover series.
    More Details Hide Details In it she answered a studio audience's questions about her life and the Clinton affair.
  • 2000
    Age 26
    Later in 2000, Lewinsky worked as a correspondent for British Channel 5 on the show Monica's Postcards, reporting on U.S. culture and trends from a variety of locations.
    More Details Hide Details
    In February 2000, she appeared on MTV's The Tom Green Show in an episode in which the host took her to his parents' home in Ottawa in search of fabric for her new handbag business.
    More Details Hide Details
    Also at the start of 2000, Lewinsky moved to New York City, living in the West Village and becoming an A-list guest in the Manhattan social scene.
    More Details Hide Details
    The company stopped running the Lewinsky ads in February 2000, concluded her campaign entirely in April 2000, and paid her only $300,000 of the $1 million contracted for her involvement.
    More Details Hide Details
    At the start of 2000, Lewinsky began appearing in television commercials for diet company Jenny Craig, Inc.
    More Details Hide Details The $1 million endorsement deal, which required Lewinsky to lose 40 or more pounds in six months, gained considerable publicity at the time. Lewinsky said that despite her desire to return to a more private life, she needed the money to pay off legal fees and that she believed in the product. A Jenny Craig spokesperson said of Lewinsky, "She represents a busy active woman of today with a hectic lifestyle. And she has had weight issues and weight struggles for a long time. That represents a lot of women in America." The choice of Lewinsky as a role model proved controversial for Jenny Craig, and some of its private franchises switched to an older advertising campaign.
  • 1999
    Age 25
    By her own account Lewinsky had survived the intense media attention during the scandal period by knitting. In September 1999, Lewinsky took this interest further by beginning to sell a line of handbags bearing her name under the company name The Real Monica, Inc.
    More Details Hide Details They were sold online as well as at Henri Bendel in New York, Fred Segal in California, and The Cross in London. Lewinsky designed the bags—described by New York magazine as "hippie-ish, reversible totes"—and traveled frequently to supervise their manufacturing in Louisiana.
    She made a cameo appearance as herself in two sketches during the May 8, 1999, episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live, a program that had lampooned her relationship with Clinton over the prior 16 months.
    More Details Hide Details
    Also in 1999, Lewinsky declined to sign an autograph in an airport, saying, "I'm kind of known for something that's not so great to be known for."
    More Details Hide Details
    On March 3, 1999, Lewinsky was interviewed by Barbara Walters on ABC's 20/20.
    More Details Hide Details The program was watched by 70 million Americans, which ABC said was a record for a news show. Lewinsky made about $500,000 from her participation in the book and another $1 million from international rights to the Walters interview, but was still beset by high legal bills and living costs. In June 1999, Ms. Magazine published a series of articles by writer Susan Jane Gilman, sexologist Susie Bright, and author-host Abiola Abrams arguing from three generations of women whether Lewinsky's behavior had any meaning for feminism.
  • 1998
    Age 24
    Clinton had also said, "there is not a sexual relationship, an improper sexual relationship or any other kind of improper relationship" which he defended as truthful on August 17, 1998, hearing because of the use of the present tense, famously arguing "it depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is" (i.e., he was not, at the time he made that statement, still in a sexual relationship with Lewinsky).
    More Details Hide Details Under pressure from Starr, who had obtained from Lewinsky a blue dress with Clinton's semen stain, as well as testimony from Lewinsky that the President had inserted a cigar tube into her vagina, Clinton stated, "I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate." Clinton denied having committed perjury because, according to Clinton, the legal definition of oral sex was not encompassed by "sex" per se. In addition, relying upon the definition of "sexual relations" as proposed by the prosecution and agreed by the defense and by Judge Susan Webber Wright, who was hearing the Paula Jones case, Clinton claimed that because certain acts were performed on him, not by him, he did not engage in sexual relations. Lewinsky's testimony to the Starr Commission, however, contradicted Clinton's claim of being totally passive in their encounters. Both Clinton and Lewinsky were called before a grand jury; Clinton testified via closed-circuit television, Lewinsky in person. She was granted transactional immunity by the United States Office of the Independent Counsel, in exchange for her testimony.
    On January 26, 1998, Clinton stated, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" in a nationally televised White House news conference.
    More Details Hide Details The matter instantly occupied the news media, and Lewinsky spent the next weeks hiding from public attention in her mother's residence at the Watergate complex. News of Lewinsky's affair with Bleiler also came to light, and he turned over to Starr various souvenirs, photographs, and documents that Lewinsky had sent him and his wife during the time she was in the White House.
    News of the Clinton–Lewinsky relationship broke in January 1998.
    More Details Hide Details
    In January 1998, after Lewinsky had submitted an affidavit in the Paula Jones case denying any physical relationship with Clinton, and had attempted to persuade Tripp to lie under oath in that case, Tripp gave the tapes to Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, adding to his ongoing investigation into the Whitewater controversy.
    More Details Hide Details Starr then broadened his investigation beyond the Arkansas land use deal to include Lewinsky, Clinton, and others for possible perjury and subornation of perjury in the Jones case. Tripp reported the taped conversations to literary agent Lucianne Goldberg. She also convinced Lewinsky to save the gifts that Clinton had given her during their relationship, and not to dry clean what would later become known as "the blue dress". Under oath, Clinton denied having had "a sexual affair", "sexual relations", or "a sexual relationship" with Lewinsky.
  • 1997
    Age 23
    In December 1997, Lewinsky left the Pentagon position.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1996
    Age 22
    In April 1996, Lewinsky's superiors transferred her from the White House to the Pentagon because they felt she was spending too much time around Clinton. There she worked as an assistant to chief Pentagon spokesperson Kenneth Bacon. Lewinsky told co-worker Linda Tripp about her relationship with the President. Beginning in September 1997, Tripp began secretly recording their telephone conversations regarding the affair with Clinton.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1995
    Age 21
    Lewinsky stated that between November 1995 and March 1997, she had nine sexual encounters with then-President Bill Clinton that, according to her testimony, involved fellatio and other sexual acts in the Oval Office, but not sexual intercourse.
    More Details Hide Details Clinton previously had been confronted with allegations of sexual misconduct during his time as Governor of Arkansas, including a civil lawsuit filed against him by former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones, alleging that he had sexually harassed her. Lewinsky's name surfaced during the discovery phase of Jones' case, when Jones' lawyers sought to show a pattern of behavior by Clinton that involved sexual relationships with other government employees.
    She moved to a paid position in the White House Office of Legislative Affairs in December 1995.
    More Details Hide Details
    With the assistance of a family connection, Lewinsky got an unpaid summer White House internship in the office of White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta. Lewinsky moved to Washington, D.C. and took up the position in July 1995.
