A Truth Journal: Daily Show Comic John Oliver Interviews Sen. Gillibrand: Fight To Fix Military Sexual Abuse And More: 4 videos. From Denny: Did you know that the Daily Show's comic, John Oliver, is an American citizen? Did you know his wife is career military?
You can easily guess who it was who suggested he interview Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in her efforts to curb the Pentagon's so-called leadership values, refusing to give up even an ounce of command authority no matter how wide-sweeping and perverted is their corruption. But then, that's the point, isn't it, to be able to have the authority necessary to cover-up that corruption and law-breaking.
In short, the Pentagon wants to do what they want, when they want and how they want without any real oversight or any consequences. It's obvious those in Congress who should be exercising oversight are too busy with their fund-raising and insider trading to take the time to hold the Pentagon's feet to the fire and get those sexual assault and rape cases properly prosecuted.
That attitude has resulted in a rape culture that is at epidemic proportions in the U.S. military. While it's clear it's acceptable to the highest levels of the military command, like Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Dempsey, it isn't acceptable or palatable to the rest of the country or women in general.
Enjoy this Zen balancing Asian bamboo!
