  • Cosby Case Can Help Victims

    By Shari Botwin A Montgomery County judge ruled last week that the sexual assault case against Bill Cosby may proceed. For countless people who have suffered in silence, including more than 50 women who have alleged that Cosby attacked them, the prosecution shows that the world is starting to condemn this kind of behavior and listen to its victims. My hope is that this will help many more survivors speak up soon after a crime occurs.

    The powerful reaction to Ray Rice’s elevator assault against his then-fiancé raises an awkward question for the media and feminist groups. Where were they when news came out that Juanita Broderick was assaulted by Bill Clinton, and advised to “put some ice on it.”? The list of women abused by Clinton is long, and includes Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and the young star-struck intern Monica Lewinsky. Yet Bill Clinton remains a revered figure in Democrat circles, just yesterday lionized in Iowa as his wife made a “will I or won’t I?” appearance at a political event.

    Boasts about sexual conquests on a now-deleted Web page could trigger felony charges against a popular Rogers High School student athlete and others, the latest twist in a swirl of accusations, comments and protest involving social media.The furor in the Elk River Area School District on Tuesday transcended the dispute over a controversial tweet by the student and exposed the sexually explicit and often vicious exchanges that fill popular online pages created by students at many Minnesota schools. The anonymous posts include bragging messages, accusations and insults directed at students, teachers and others.Rogers Police Chief Jeff Beahen said the “Rogers...

    Clinton: 'I'm very sorry' Posted by CNN's Ashley Killough (CNN) – Bill Clinton regrets the swirl over comments he made earlier in the week in which he appeared to suggest he would be open to extending the so-called Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, the former president said Thursday. "I'm very sorry about what happened," Clinton said in an interview to air on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." "I thought something had to be done on the 'fiscal cliff' before the election. Apparently nothing has to be done until the first of the year." Republicans seized on Clinton's...

    Gore to young advocates: Battle industry lobbyists to turn the tide on climate By Ben Geman - 04/15/11 09:10 PM ET Al Gore told young green energy advocates Friday that progress on global warming must come from a strong grassroots movement that can counter the oil and coal lobbies, which he alleged have “paralyzed” governments. Gore – who compared action on global warming to the Civil Rights movement – was the keynote speaker at Power Shift 2011, a Washington, D.C. conference attended largely by college students. “It’s true that governments by and large have been politically paralyzed because the energy...

    Knowing the hazards of “road rage,” I recently experienced “parking-lot rage” when confronted by a bumper sticker that read: “I’m a Republican. Not everybody can be on welfare!” For the person on whose vehicle that appeared: I’m a socially liberal Democrat who’s not spent a single second on welfare. For those of you on the right whose arch-conservative stance has been allowed to dictate county and city government, nestled as they are in the bosom of the Ronald Reagan Library, who think that bumper stickers are cute and funny and want to know where you can get yours, I proudly...

    ‘Someone wins, someone doesn’t win, that’s life,” Nancy Kopp, Maryland’s treasurer, told the Washington Post. “But women don’t want to be totally dissed.” She was talking about her political candidate, Hillary Clinton. Democratic women are feeling metaphorically battered by the Obama campaign. “Healing The Wounds Of Democrats’ Sexism,” as the Boston Globe headline put it, will not be easy. Geraldine Ferraro is among many prominent Democrat ladies putting up their own money for a study from the Shorenstein Center at Harvard to determine whether Senator Clinton’s presidential hopes fell victim to party and media sexism. How else to explain why...

    LOS ANGELES — Have we gone from the "Year of the Woman" to the "Year of the Sweetie"? So it appears. It's not the "sweetie" part that gets me, and I suspect a lot of other women. It's the concern that, not to sound trite, some of the guys out there, maybe including the probable Democratic nominee for President, just don't "get it." If you can remember that far back, this was supposed to be another one of those "Year of the Woman" elections, the first time a woman was entering the race as the frontrunner for her party's nomination,...

    Kathleen Willey, who famously alleged that Bill Clinton fondled her in the Oval Office in 1993, is hoping to return to the national spotlight. The former White House volunteer is set to publish "Target: In the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton" through the conservative World Ahead press in November. "The timing is intended to hurt Hillary in her Democratic primary campaign, by getting negative stories out there," according to a source. The book promises new details on what Willey claims were physical and verbal threats from the "Clinton machine" to silence her allegations of sexual assault. A rep for...

Media outlets that report on food safety have been punished. In such an atmosphere of state-sponsored media crackdown a US delegation arrives in Beijing today on a mission to improve food and drug safety. The Publicity Department of the...

    Bill Clinton has lashed out against an old ally, the New York Times, saying the paper wasn’t giving his wife Hillary "a fair shake.” At a fund-raiser for Hillary on Tuesday night at the Trump World Tower in Manhattan, the former president spoke for two hours and devoted much of that time to attacking the Times, according to the New York Post. WABC radio host Curtis Sliwa, one of the attendees, told the Post: "He said his wife wasn’t getting a fair shake from the Times.

    WASHINGTON - Ex-President Bill Clinton exploded yesterday when asked why he didn't get Osama Bin Laden - and revealed that he had invasion plans drawn up to topple the Taliban and get Al Qaeda. Clinton was clearly annoyed when Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace said viewers had sent e-mails urging him to ask, "Why didn't you do more to put Bin Laden and Al Qaeda out of business?" After a string of related questions, Clinton became red-faced and, in a finger-jabbbing tirade, blamed a conspiracy of media and right-wingers for trying to blame him for Bin Laden's survival. When Wallace...

    Channel surfing and Chrissy Matthews mentioned that Tim Russert is going to "interview" Bill Clinton this Sunday after the Ryder Cup coverage(which is happening in Ireland) at 1:00 PM EDT this Sunday. Gee I wonder if Timmy will be more pleasurable to be around in Bill Clinton's mind than Monica. The answer is probably yes.
