    The #MeToo movement has ended the U.S. career of legendary 78-year-old Spanish tenor Placido Domingo, one of classical music’s greatest ambassadors and impresarios. For nearly half a century, Domingo’s intense stage presence and warm, soaring voice captivated opera audiences; during the 1990s, he reached millions of new listeners as a member of the itinerant Three Tenors. In recent years, long after most singers have retired from the stage, he has continued a grueling international performance schedule, now singing baritone roles with remarkable pitch control and legato. Domingo’s entrepreneurial drive has been as untiring as his stage career. He was pivotal...

    Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed Wednesday to change his handsy ways after four women came forward to accuse him of inappropriate touching. “Social norms have begun to change, they’ve shifted and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset, and I get it,” said the former vice president in a video posted to his Twitter account. “I hear what they’re saying, I understand it and I’ll be much more mindful.” Biden maintained that he meant no ill will, and his penchant for hugs and shoulder rubs was “just who I am,” but conceded that it was on...

    In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour former First Lady Hillary Clinton explained the difference between the sexual allegations made against her husband and those made against Donald Trump. "First of all, Bill was thoroughly investigated," she reminded. "There was forensic evidence of his semen on Monica's dress. So it wasn't just a 'he said, she said' type of case. Second, at the time many women publicly stated that they would gladly service Bill out of gratitude for his support of abortion. Third, the media didn't make a big deal out of it. They realized he was doing a bang-up...

    Typing “kill” into Twitter’s search function currently returns a shocking result at the top of its search suggestions: “#KillKavanaugh.” It’s also currently the third autocompleted suggestion in searches for “ki” and the fourth suggestion in searches for “k” as of this writing. That’s right — by typing a single letter into search, Twitter is suggesting that its users might be interested in a hashtag about the murder of a federal judge and SCOTUS nominee. The search suggestion was spotted by Instapundit earlier today and has been confirmed by Breitbart News. “KillKavanaugh” search suggestions were also observed by Breitbart News in...

    You don’t know me, though I’ve met both Collins and Murkowski when I worked for the late Montana Senator Conrad Burns. But my life, and the lives of everyone in this country, are hanging on what you do next in the confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh. I call it a battle rather than a process because it is a battle, a fight, even a war. I know each of you think you’re doing your best to stave off that war, but you’re only making it more likely. Senator Flake, you were confronted on national television by two activists, both claiming...

    Commenting on Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that Brett Kavanaugh assaulted her at a beer party some 36 years ago and that the FBI must investigate the matter now before she will testify about the supposed incident, Juanita Broaddrick tweeted that if the FBI goes back that far then it must also "investigate my RAPE allegations against Bill Clinton, too." "If you want the FBI to go back that far @HillaryClinton @MSNBC to investigate Ford's allegations .... let's investigate my RAPE allegations against Bill Clinton, too. Seems only fair," Broaddrick tweeted on Sept. 18.

    September 26, 2018 A tawdry, disgusting, and distasteful week By John David Powell As the Grateful Dead said, what a long, strange trip it's been. And dude, the week is only half-over. I mean, like, there it was: the headline declaring that Bill Cosby, Mr. Jell-O Pudding, America's Dad, will spend the next three to ten years in prison trying to keep from being some bad boy's best girl while wearing the title of Sexually Violent Predator for the rest of his life. Will they make him sew SVP onto the front of his shirt? I received no reply on...

    Epic Fail: Conservatives were disappointed Saturday to learn that Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, had caved to demands from Christine Blasey Ford for ‘more time’ before she is prepared to testify before the panel regarding her allegations that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago. In agreeing to delay Ford’s testimony, Grassley appeared to be taking the side of one woman with a sketchy claim who appears to have been involved with Democrats in delaying Kavanaugh’s nomination to more than 75 women who have come forward to vouch for the nominee. Now, there...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for her statements about sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "Now clear why top Democrat on Senate Judiciary Committee did nothing with allegation for months or even ask Judge Kavanaugh about it," Sanders tweeted. "Senator Feinstein just said 'I can't say everything's truthful.'" Feinstein told reporters on Capitol Hill earlier Tuesday that she couldn't say that everything in Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh was "truthful." Feinstein later clarified her comments to CNN, saying, "Based on what I know at this stage, she [Ford] is...

    Federal prosecutors are backtracking on their allegation that a Russian woman accused of working as a secret agent offered to trade sex for access. WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors are backtracking on their allegation that a Russian woman accused of working as a secret agent offered to trade sex for access, according to a Justice Department court filing. Prosecutors had earlier accused Maria Butina, a gun rights activist in U.S. custody on charges she worked as a covert agent and tried to establish back-channel lines of communication to the Kremlin, of offering to exchange sex for a position with a...

    The Democratic National Committee said it is reviewing allegations against its deputy chair, Rep. Keith Ellison, three days after he was accused of physically and verbally abusing his ex-girlfriend. “These allegations recently came to light and we are reviewing them,” the DNC told NPR in a statement Tuesday evening. “All allegations of domestic abuse are disturbing and should be taken seriously.” **SNIP** Just hours after the DNC said it was reviewing the allegations, Mr. Ellison went on to win the Democratic primary for Minnesota attorney general, easily besting four other challengers Tuesday evening.

    Twitter banned the account of a pro-Trump grassroots campaign with 15 state field directors along with another prominent Trump supporter, failing to reinstate the accounts on the same day that the company came under fire from the president himself for discrimination against conservatives. Eight days ago, Twitter banned the account of a pro-Trump grassroots organization called New Right US (@newrightus.) Co-founded by political activist Mike Tokes, the account represented an organization that mobilizes Trump supporters around the country. “We have over 15 state directors and a team of social media influencers throughout the country” said Tokes. “It wasn’t just some...

    I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention. But, given the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit. I was present for everything that transpired in our house before, during, and after the alleged event. Now that the public hysteria of earlier this year has died down a little and I have some hope that the truth can get a fair hearing, I want to share my story.

(snip) -- Like many Americans, when I saw last week’s headlines about my friend, U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), I couldn’t believe them. The accusations did not describe the man of character and courage I’ve known for more than a decade. When I read the actual stories under those headlines, my reaction turned from dread to outrage. Jordan isn’t being accused; he’s being railroaded. Jordan, as you may know, was a two-time NCAA Division I national...

    Vice President Mike Pence's physician, Dr. Jennifer Peña, resigned after derailing the nomination of White House physician Admiral Ronny Jackson to become secretary of Veterans Affairs with unsubstantiated allegations of professional misconduct on his part.“The vice president’s office was informed today by the White House Medical Unit of the resignation,” Pence spokeswoman Alyssa Farah commented Friday. “Physicians assigned to the vice president report to the White House Medical Unit and thus any resignation would go entirely through the Medical Unit, not the vice president’s office.”Dr. Peña was among those who claimed professional misconduct by Jackson.

    This morning, Karen had a nice rundown of the allegations brought forth against Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson in a memo offered up by Montana Senator Jon Tester and what’s become of them since the shocking “revelations” first hit the news. Let’s just say that they don’t seem to be holding up well under initial scrutiny, to put it charitably. Not long after holes began appearing in these stories, President Trump jumped back into the fray on Twitter with a less than subtle solution to offer: Jon Tester should resign. (CNN) President Donald Trump on Saturday morning called for Montana Democratic...

    Hollywood stars are storming social media and urging their fans to turn out and vote for Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday. many of them using the hashtag #RightSideOfHistory, launched a last-minute campaign to stop Judge Roy Moore’s bid for the U.S. Senate. Will & Grace star Debra Messing posted a video offering her support for Jones’ Senate bid, as did comedian-actor Keegan-Michael Key and Nashville star Connie Britton. The left-wing celebrity support for Jones in Alabama is reminiscent of the Hollywood-heavy campaign earlier this year for Democrat Jon Ossoff, who lost his bid against Republican Karen Handel in Georgia’s Sixth...
