    Caption: 'Sex Slaves in the Catholic Church' German-French channel Arte says it will fight to overturn a court injunction that prevents it from rebroadcasting the documentary, which accuses rogue priests of sexually abusing French nuns. A French television documentary that accuses Catholic priests of sexually abusing nuns has been pulled from the French-German television channel Arte after a priest filed a complaint with a German court. French director Marie-Pierre Raimbault and investigative journalist Eric Quintin shot the documentary, Sex Slaves in the Catholic Church, over three years, basing it on firsthand testimony of nuns who claim they were used as...

    Joe Biden made the issue of sexual assault on campus his own. He forced a new interpretation of “Title IX” onto universities that required them to investigate and dole out unfair verdicts in sexual harassment and assault accusations. Unqualified bureaucrats took the place of police, lawyers, and judges, and as a result, a rash of false allegations were championed by victim advocates who had no understanding of the law or respect for due process. It’s been almost a decade of this appalling overreach. The lawsuits on behalf of these falsely accused young men and women are still working their way...

    Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, accuses Democratic Party supported Planned Parenthood of what Rev. Dr. Clenard H Childress Jr. calls "Black Genocide." King points out “The leading cause of death in the African-American community is not gang-violence, gun violence, heart attack, stroke, HIV, high blood pressure, diabetes. People will name all these. No, it’s abortion. And the reason we have come to that conclusion, statistically, you’ve got 60 million plus abortions legal in America since 1973. About a third of those occur in the African-American community. That means dead babies. And, with us being 13 percent or...
  • Ocasio-Cortez vows to 'run train' on progressive agenda in bizarre turn of phrase.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., used a strange – and sexually charged – phrase to describe to The Washington Post her plan for implementing a progressive agenda. “... enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda,” the newly minted congresswoman told the newspaper. The choice of words sent the Internet into a tizzy, as it has a well-known and highly disturbing connotation. According to the Urban Dictionary, to “run train” means “to gangbang” someone. The phrase was injected into more mainstream parlance in October, after a client of adult film industry lawyer Michael...

    The University of Missouri has claimed that a male asking a female out on a date could be sexual harassment – if she is smaller than him. Mizzou officials made the claim as doctoral student challenged them in a lawsuit surrounding his suspension in 2016 for the romantic proposal to his student dance instructor Annalise Breaux. The college claimed that posing the question could violate Title IX, which serves to prohibit sexual discrimination on any federally funded education program, after Jeremy Rowles sued them for racial and sexual discrimination.

We are stronger than this bullshit. We can fight and fight and we may not see the results right away, but we will see them. Our daughters will see them. Don’t give up. Fight harder,” former Netflix host Chelsea Handler fumed on Twitter.

    The number of reported sexual assaults at colleges and universities around the country is rising amid new tools for students to report sexual abuse, according to statistics reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. In the data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the Journal reports that trends of reported sexual assaults are rising while the number of lawsuits universities face over mishandling such claims is also rising. University officials now say that conflicting guidance from courts, the Obama administration, and the Trump administration on battling sexual assault on campus have left schools confused over how to handle such claims....

    Women cheer as Sweden's man-free music festival kicks off Matilda Hagerman laughs with her friends as she queues at a man-free music festival, which kicked off in Sweden on Friday in protest against a wave of sexual assaults at festivals in recent years. "This festival was necessary because of everything that happened during festivals last year," says the 27-year-old student with long pink hair and purple lipstick as her friends nod in agreement. Held in Sweden's second-largest city of Gothenburg, the two-day Statement Festival, forbids men but not transgender people. It was announced last year after police received four rape...

    In her new children’s book “She Persisted,” Chelsea Clinton tells the story of 13 inspirational women in American history and in our contemporary times who never took no for answer. Now, those women — including Harriet Tubman, Nellie Bly, Sonia Sotomayor and Oprah Winfrey — will become characters in a new musical presented by the Bay Area Children’s Theatre. “She Persisted, the Musical,” is one of four new works being created for the Oakland-based theater’s 15th anniversary season. In the stage adaptation, Emani and Peter’s third-grade field trip to a museum turns into an adventure in time travel, during which...
  • How campus politics hijacked American politics

    The defense of free speech has always been a bedrock bipartisan principle. So it’s unusual to hear a veteran liberal politician excuse campus outrage squads that shout down dissent. But that’s exactly what former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean did in a recent appearance.. Dean’s take on this was that there are “consequences to free speech.” He caricatured Erika Christakis’s thoughtful, sensitive letter as an ugly screed mocking “snowflake” students and defending racist costumes. He also described the protesters as well-behaved, despite their screaming and bullying. ... Dean is hardly alone...progressives on and off campus are...

    Juanita Broaddrick had almost given up by the time she called her grandson from her house in Van Buren, Arkansas, on January 6, 2016. She had been trying, since seeing a video in late November, to send a single tweet, with no success. Her grandson, Ridge, then 13, diagnosed the problem immediately. “Nana, are there red numbers at the bottom?” Broaddrick remembers him asking. When Broaddrick said yes, he explained this meant that the message was over the maximum 140 characters then allowed by Twitter. Broaddrick didn’t tell Ridge what she was trying to tweet when he gave her the...

    The United Nations has allowed sexual harassment and assault to flourish in its offices around the world, with accusers ignored and perpetrators free to act with impunity, the Guardian has been told.Dozens of current and former UN employees described a culture of silence across the organisation and a flawed grievance system that is stacked against victims.Of the employees interviewed, 15 said they had experienced or reported sexual harassment or assault within the past five years. The alleged offences ranged from verbal harassment to rape.Seven of the women had formally reported what happened, a route that campaigners say is rarely pursued...

Not to play by someone’s rules, not to wear abaya, not to be accompanied getting outside and altogether not to...

    With allegations of sexual harassment, assault, and other forms of misconduct sweeping through Hollywood in recent weeks, at least one Republican congressman is calling for Congress to hold hearings on entertainment industry practices. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview Thursday that Congress should help expose the widespread “criminal conduct” that has taken place in Hollywood and across the entertainment industry over decades. “I think Congress — both the House and Senate — should hold hearings and expose what’s going on, and make sure people understand that Hollywood and the entertainment industry have a serious problem...

    CNN has reported that five women have accused Mark Halperin of sexual harassment during his time at ABC News some years ago. Halperin has been an MSNBC contributor for years, and a regular on the Morning Joe panel. Mika Brzezinski addressed the story this morning: "CNN is reporting allegations regarding our friend, Mark Halperin . . . I'm sure we'll be talking about it again when we know more about it." My take: it might sound like a cliche, but I was surprised and saddened to see the story. It's easy to lump all MSM figures in the same biased...

    Good news for college men: You’re welcome again on campus. On Friday, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ripped up the Obama administration’s one-sided rules on how colleges and universities handle accusations of sexual assault and misconduct. The rules, imposed in 2011, were so stacked against the accused — usually young men — that dozens of innocent male students were branded as rapists, kicked out of school and robbed of future job opportunities. Those with sufficient money and fortitude managed to get their names cleared in real courts of law — where rules of evidence, due process and reasonable standards of proof...
