A Carlos Henriquez Alternative Reality Timeline

Amy: Yes Doc­tor the press, asks ques­tions and the pres­i­dent answers them that’s what’s sup­posed to happen.

The 11th Doc­tor: No Amy that not what they’re sup­posed to be doing, it’s not remotely what they’re sup­posed to be doing, well I mean to say it IS what they are sup­posed to be doing, but it not what they are sup­posed to be doing.

The Doc­tor, Obama & the Press Corps Sept 142012

This morn­ing on Morn­ing Joe Mika & com­pany con­tinue to go all in on the war on women hit­ting Mike Huck­abee & now Rand Paul for dar­ing to sug­gest that a party who cel­e­brate a per­son who used his author­ity to get sex from a young sub­or­di­nate has no busi­ness talk­ing about a “war on women”.

Some­how despite my best efforts the case of Demo­c­rat State Rep Car­los Hen­riquez who stub­bornly retains his seat in Mass­a­chu­setts after being CON­VICTED two weeks ago of assault­ing a women who refused to have sex with him and being told by the judge at sentencing.

When a woman tells you she doesn’t want to have sex, that means she does not want to have sex.”

…has not become part of the entire “War on Women” narrative.

Now some might call this a local issue but those same peo­ple who do never fail to report on the lat­est escapades of a cer­tain chubby mayor in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent coun­try.

So lets play a game of imag­i­na­tion. Let’s take our TARDIS & fly to an alter­na­tive real­ity where instead of Car­los Hen­riquez being a Demo­c­rat His­panic Rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Boston he’s a repub­li­can state Rep from St. Louis Mis­souri and exam­ine what the time line of events con­cern­ing him would have looked like:

July 2012: Mis­souri State Rep Car­los Hen­riquez (R-​St Louis)arrested in St. Louis & charged with Kid­nap­ping & assault of a young women after she escaped his car in the wee hours of the morning.

July 2012: The St Louis Post dis­patch does a front page story on the Mis­souri Repub­li­can and his rise to power in a strong repub­li­can district.

July 2012: The Claire McCaskill re-​election cam­paign denounces rep­re­sen­ta­tive Car­los Hen­riquez and calls upon him to with­draw from the race and cites him as an exam­ple of the GOP war on women and calls on GOP can­di­date Todd Akin to demand Rep Henriquez’s imme­di­ate res­ig­na­tion & withdrawal.

July 2012: Around the Morn­ing Joe table the next day Mika Cites the Hen­riquez case as yet another embar­rass­ment for Rep Todd Akin cam­paign with women. David Axel­rod brings up Hen­riquez in con­text of the GOP War on Women and calls on the Mitt Rom­ney cam­paign to not only denounce him but demand that Todd Akin with­draw for not doing so.

July 2012: Later that day Mitt Rom­ney at a stop in Florida is asked about Hen­riquez, he makes a state­ment say­ing that while he doesn’t want to pre­judge the accused rep guilt not know­ing the case, given the seri­ously of the charges calls on Rep Hen­riquez to with­draw from the race

July 2012: the MSM picks up the meme and on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS & MSNBC shows Hen­riquez is made the poster­boy for the entire War on Women theme and can­di­dates nation­wide includ­ing Scott Brown in Mass­a­chu­setts are asked about it. Eliz­a­beth War­ren calls it the most extreme exam­ple of the GOP war on woman.

July 2012: Rachael Mad­dow has San­dra Fluke on her show to talk about Hen­riquez and how he rep­re­sents all repub­li­cans. Demands the RNC not spend any money on can­di­dates in Mis­souri until Rep Hen­riquez has resigned and with­drawn from his race.

July 2012: Jon Stew­art & Steven Col­bert pick up the story with the cap­tion: Hen­riquez: enemy com­bat­ant, war on women

July 2012: On all the Sun­day shows Hen­riquez is brought up, National GOP Chair Renice Priebus is asked Hen­riquez by David Gre­gory on Meet the Press.

July 2012: The National GOP & the Mis­souri GOP jointly endorse Rep Hen­riquez oppo­nent in the state race and vow to do all they can to defeat Mr. Hen­riquez if he refuses to resign and withdraw.

July 2012: After a week of over­whelm­ing national pres­sure Rep Car­los Hen­riquez resigns from the Mis­souri house in order to devote full time to his defense.

Aug-​Nov 2012: When the sub­ject of the “War on Women” is brought up Car­los Hen­riquez is cited in the list of GOP offenders.

Jan 15 2014: The day after Car­los Hen­riquez is sen­tenced to 6 months for Assault all the morn­ing shows and evening polit­i­cal shows bring up the Hen­riquez case and ask how it will affect the midterms for the GOP.

I chal­lenge any hon­est per­son to dis­pute that this is what we would have seen.

Update:  Ed Mor­ris­sey on the Rand Paul stuff:

Yes, let’s judge Hillary on her tal­ents and vision. Let’s mull over all her accom­plish­ments in the US Sen­ate … and when you find some, we’ll do that. How about her tenure as Sec­re­tary of State? It started with a badly trans­lated “reset but­ton” that pre­sumed all of our trou­bles with Rus­sia were George Bush’s fault, and ended with four dead Amer­i­cans in Beng­hazi after Hillary and Barack Obama turned Libya into a failed-​state play­ground for al-​Qaeda. Her final assess­ment of Beng­hazi? “What dif­fer­ence, at this point, does it make?”

The only real argu­ment for Hillary as a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date is Bill Clin­ton nos­tal­gia. Paul was just remind­ing us of why even that is hypocrisy on stilts.

Update 2: Wel­come Jawa report read­ers. You can see my larger post on the sub­ject here, Lis­ten to my rant about it on Saturday’s radio show below here

and my inter­view with the Mass GOP chair talk­ing about this on the radio show the PRE­VI­OUS SAT­UR­DAY here:

Hen­riquez came up at 11:30 in the inter­view remem­ber that was Jan 18th

It’s Mon­day we’re $12 toward our $345 weekly goal.

Nor­mally this would be a cause for worry but as we’ve already made the monthly goal I’m a tad less tense about it.

But given that I’ve just pur­chased my Air­fare & hotel for CPAC 2014 which will run me about $800 not count­ing any meals any­thing that puts a dent in that is cer­tainly welcome.

So I would ask you to con­sider hit­ting DaTip­Jar to get me a lit­tle ahead.

Only 55 34 more sub­scribers @ at $20 a month are nec­es­sary to secure the cost of DaM­ag­nif­i­cent Seven & my monthly mort­gage on a per­ma­nent basis. If you think blogs like this will­ing to high­light the dou­ble stan­dard of the Democ­rats & media online & on radio are worth it, please con­sider sub­scrib­ing and sug­gest­ing a friend do so as well.



Amy: Yes Doctor the press, asks questions and the president answers them that’s what’s supposed to happen.

The 11th Doctor: No Amy that not what they’re supposed to be doing, it’s not remotely what they’re supposed to be doing, well I mean to say it IS what they are supposed to be doing, but it not what they are supposed to be doing.

The Doctor, Obama & the Press Corps Sept 14, 2012

This morning on Morning Joe Mika & company continue to go all in on the war on women hitting Mike Huckabee & now Rand Paul for daring to suggest that a party who celebrate a person who used his authority to get sex from a young subordinate has no business talking about a “war on women”.

Somehow despite my best efforts the case of Democrat State Rep Carlos Henriquez who stubbornly retains his seat in Massachusetts after being CONVICTED two weeks ago of assaulting a women who refused to have sex with him and being told by the judge at sentencing.

“When a woman tells you she doesn’t want to have sex, that means she does not want to have sex.”

…has not become part of the entire “War on Women” narrative.

Now some might call this a local issue but those same people who do never fail to report on the latest escapades of a certain chubby mayor in a completely different country.

So lets play a game of imagination.  Let’s take our TARDIS & fly to an alternative reality where instead of Carlos Henriquez being a Democrat Hispanic Representative from Boston  he’s a  republican state Rep from St. Louis Missouri and examine what the time line of events concerning him would have looked like:

July 2012:   Missouri State Rep Carlos Henriquez (R-St Louis)arrested in St. Louis & charged with Kidnapping & assault of a young women after she escaped his car in the wee hours of the morning.

July 2012:   The St Louis Post dispatch does a front page story on the Missouri Republican and his rise to power in a strong republican district.

July 2012: The Claire McCaskill re-election campaign denounces representative Carlos Henriquez and calls upon him to withdraw from the race and cites him as an example of the GOP war on women and calls on GOP candidate Todd Akin to demand Rep Henriquez’s immediate resignation & withdrawal.

July 2012: Around the Morning Joe table the next day Mika Cites the Henriquez case as yet another embarrassment for Rep Todd Akin campaign with women. David Axelrod brings up Henriquez in context of the GOP War on Women and calls on the Mitt Romney campaign to not only denounce him but demand that Todd Akin withdraw for not doing so.

July 2012: Later that day Mitt Romney at a stop in Florida is asked about Henriquez, he makes a statement saying that while he doesn’t want to prejudge the accused rep guilt not knowing the case, given the seriously of the charges calls on Rep Henriquez to withdraw from the race

July 2012: the MSM picks up the meme and on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS & MSNBC shows Henriquez is made the posterboy for the entire War on Women theme and candidates nationwide including Scott Brown in Massachusetts are asked about it. Elizabeth Warren calls it the most extreme example of the GOP war on woman.

July 2012: Rachael Maddow has Sandra Fluke on her show to talk about Henriquez and how he represents all republicans. Demands the RNC not spend any money on candidates in Missouri until Rep Henriquez has resigned and withdrawn from his race.

July 2012: Jon Stewart & Steven Colbert pick up the story with the caption: Henriquez: enemy combatant, war on women

July 2012: On all the Sunday shows Henriquez is brought up, National GOP Chair Renice Priebus is asked Henriquez by David Gregory on Meet the Press.

July 2012: The National GOP & the Missouri GOP jointly endorse Rep Henriquez opponent in the state race and vow to do all they can to defeat Mr. Henriquez if he refuses to resign and withdraw.

July 2012: After a week of overwhelming national pressure Rep Carlos Henriquez resigns from the Missouri house in order to devote full time to his defense.

Aug-Nov 2012: When the subject of the “War on Women” is brought up Carlos Henriquez is cited in the list of GOP offenders.

Jan 15 2014: The day after Carlos Henriquez is sentenced to 6 months for Assault all the morning shows and evening political shows bring up the Henriquez case and ask how it will affect the midterms for the GOP.

I challenge any honest person to dispute that this is what we would have seen.

Update:  Ed Morrissey on the Rand Paul stuff:

Yes, let’s judge Hillary on her talents and vision. Let’s mull over all her accomplishments in the US Senate … and when you find some, we’ll do that. How about her tenure as Secretary of State? It started with a badly translated “reset button” that presumed all of our troubles with Russia were George Bush’s fault, and ended with four dead Americans in Benghazi after Hillary and Barack Obama turned Libya into a failed-state playground for al-Qaeda. Her final assessment of Benghazi? “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

The only real argument for Hillary as a presidential candidate is Bill Clinton nostalgia. Paul was just reminding us of why even that is hypocrisy on stilts.

Update 2:  Welcome Jawa report readers. You can see my larger post on the subject here,   Listen to my rant about it on Saturday’s radio show below here

and my interview with the Mass GOP chair talking about this on the radio show the PREVIOUS SATURDAY here:

Henriquez came up at 11:30 in the interview remember that was Jan 18th

It’s Monday we’re $12 toward our $345 weekly goal.

Normally this would be a cause for worry but as we’ve already made the monthly goal I’m a tad less tense about it.

But given that I’ve just purchased my Airfare & hotel for CPAC 2014 which will run me about $800 not counting any meals  anything that puts a dent in that is certainly welcome.

So I would ask you to consider hitting DaTipJar to get me a little ahead.
