  • More Details Emerge on What Joe Paterno Knew of Sandusky Child Rapes

    New York Post (at Foxnews.com) ^ | Sept. 10, 2017 | New York Post
    A previously unreleased police report written 10 years after the most infamous incident in the Jerry Sandusky child-rape scandal at Penn State revealed more evidence that Joe Paterno knew about his assistant coach’s horrific behavior before 2001. The report, which CNN obtained and released Saturday, says when assistant coach Mike McQueary told Paterno he had seen Sandusky with a young boy in the showers at Penn State’s football facility, that the head coach told him it was “the second complaint of this nature he had received.” After the news broke of Sandusky’s behavior and his arrest, Paterno, his family and...

    Judge slams Paterno, McQueary as he sends Spanier, Curley and Schultz to jail over Sandusky child-sex case Senior Judge John Boccabella spared no one, not even Mike McQueary or Joe Paterno, as he sentenced former Penn State President Graham Spanier and two of his top aides to prison Friday for fumbling a chance in 2001 to stop child-sex predator Jerry Sandusky. Spanier, former PSU Athletic Director Tim Curley, ex-vice president Gary Schultz, Paterno or McQueary, the man who claimed he saw Sandusky molesting a young boy in a university shower room, could stopped Sandusky with a single phone call to...
  • Is It “Deeply Offensive” to Enforce the Law?

    It is, apparently, if the law relates to immigration. At Penn State, someone put up posters urging students and others to report violations of the immigration laws. This is the poster:Is it a civic duty to report illegal aliens? That is certainly a defensible position. In general, citizens should cooperate with law enforcement. But Penn State’s administration didn’t see it that way: “The posters are unsigned and appear to be designed to provoke anger, fear and hate. The university finds them deeply offensive,” Penn State said in a statement. Is enforcing the law really a sign of “anger, fear and...

    Students all over Penn State University agree on this much about Hillary Clinton: "She’s slimy," said Anay Pope. And Pope, 25, is a Clinton supporter. For the moment. Clinton’s poll numbers are sagging, and the biggest reason is that she’s plunging among young voters. A Quinnipiac University poll this month found that in a four-way race, Clinton is up 5 points nationally with 18- to 34-year-old voters, down from a 24-point lead just a month before. Just days ahead of the first debate Monday and less than two months before voting ends, she faces two challenges: Many young voters are...

    Ex-Penn State players still support Paterno While more testimony surfaced Tuesday that former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno and two assistants knew about Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse of children and did nothing to prevent it, a former Nittany Lions player said he still believes accusations against Paterno are without proof. The Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas on Tuesday released previously sealed depositions that indicate Paterno knew in 1976 of abuse by Sandusky, a former longtime assistant coach who in 2012 was convicted on 45 counts. “The claims are just that: They are claims. They're accusations,” said Brian Masella, who...

    A Students for Trump event at Portland State University was greeted with hostility Saturday when campus police officers tried to kick Trump’s supporters to the curb while protesters reacted hysterically to chants of “USA! USA!” Students for Trump began the event by erecting a wall on campus but campus security attempted to force the students to leave on the grounds that the wall was a “structure” rather than a “sign,” and thus violated university policies. However, the students were ultimately allowed to remain on campus but were harshly ridiculed by their peers, who called them “pathetic,” “idiot,” and members of...

    At Pennsylvania State University, no hurt feeling is too small, no slight too inconsequential, no unintentionally biased statement too unimportant. Administrators want to know it all. The public university is in the midst of a massive campaign that encourages students not only to watch what they say, lest they offend someone, but also to report any and all biased statements to campus officials. “There is no place for hate, overt or subtle, at Penn State – such actions do not represent our mutually held values,” Eric Barron, president of Penn State, stated in a recent message to the campus community....

    As world leaders in Paris scramble to reach a climate agreement aimed to mitigate the consequences of untamed greenhouse gas emissions, they have been dealt a rare dose of good news. Scientists writing in the journal Nature Climate Change estimate that for the first time in the last 15 years, global carbon dioxide emissions have flatlined, and possibly even declined. "It is difficult to overstate the significance of this development," said Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University. "What it shows is that we are indeed now turning the corner in transition from a...

    The stage is set for another meeting between Stanford and Penn State. It’s the fourth matchup between the teams in the last three seasons, and unsurprisingly, the major storyline is the same. The two teams will once again battle for the No. 1 overall ranking in the nation. Though this time, the more intriguing storyline might be of the matchup on the sidelines. Penn State head coach Russ Ross and Stanford head coach John Dunning are not only coaching legends in collegiate volleyball but they’re also long-time friends. And this season, both have faced challenges in restructuring their lineups and...

    Devon Still, whose daughter Leah's battle with cancer captified a nation, was released by the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported according to a source informed of their plans. The organization showed a lot of compassion in how they handled Still's status throughout the last year. But the cold reality of NFL rosters caught up to him Saturday. The 2012 second round pick has been on the roster bubble for a while now, starting last year on the team's practice squad. Still did not get much attention as a free agent this offseason, ultimately re-signing with...

I brought this on myself. This is my fault.”Olbermann saw a tweet from a Penn State fan, and didn’t know there was a link...
