    The chief judge of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that he has opened a misconduct inquiry into a judge accused of inappropriate sexual conduct and comments by six women. Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Sidney R. Thomas issued the order based on allegations against Judge Alex Kozinski in a Dec. 8 Washington Post article. The women were clerks and others at the largest federal appeals court in the country. Kozinski is a prominent judge, serving as chief judge of the 9th Circuit from 2007 to 2014.

    In the 1970's something occurred, an event occurred in the U.S. that ultimately caused businesses, government, etc. to perform mandatory sexual harassment classes. I can't remember what it was at the time in I believe the latter 1970's that caused the glorious waste of time (IMO) that to this day is a requirement in most workplaces. Was it something similar to what is inundating the headlines today? Is what we are subjected to daily now simply deja vu?

    The #MeToo moment has now morphed into a moral panic that poses as much danger to women as it does to men. #Metoo, of course. Women are not going nuts for no reason. We’re fed up with feeling prickles down our spine as we walk alone on dimly lit streets. Fed up with thinking, “If he feels entitled to send me that message, what might he feel entitled to do to if he knew where I lived?” Fed up with strangers who smack their lips and murmur obscenities at us. Fed up with thinking, “No, I don’t want to go...

    Judicial Watch ^ | December 13, 2017
    It turns out the government secretly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to resolve a sexual harassment case filed by Judicial Watch against a Florida congressman with a long history of unscrupulous behavior. The veteran Democrat, Alcee Hastings, is most famous for getting impeached by Congress as a federal judge following a scandal involving the solicitation of a $150,000 bribe in return for favorable treatment for defendants in a racketeering case before him. The disgraced judge was an unindicted co-conspirator, but there was enough evidence against him for Congress to boot him from the bench. Hastings is one of only...

    America is having a reckoning and its long overdue. Im talking about the movement to hold sexual harassers accountable for their actions. This important movement is now shaking the halls of power in Congress and state capitols and I am determined to help lead it. I remember my first year in the Tennessee House of Representatives. It was 1998, and having spent my career as a nurse and an educator, I had a lot to learn about the legislative process. I immediately figured out that the state House had a good ol' boy culture - and learned about the inappropriate...

    Before this egregious epidemic goes further and the Democrats among us continue to spit on the Constitution they loathe, some grown-up should step forward and speak up for due process Its become de rigeur for public figures and media personalities to repeat the tired mantra: Always believe the women. This refers, of course, to any accusation of sexual harassment, no matter how far in the past it took place and even if it was interpreted at the time as innocent flirting. Leftists seized on the harassment lawsuits that took place at the Fox News Network last year, when Andrea Tantaros,...

    Georgetown, amid years of reports that its Middle East Studies were compromised by apologists for violent extremists, if not outright terrorists, has, if anything, doubled down on its approach. "Breaking news on the discipline of Middle East studies is seldom kind to Georgetown University," a report from Campus Watch notes. "In July 2017 came word that the Bridge Initiative of the Saudi-funded Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU) had hired former Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) national legal director Arsalan Iftikhar as a senior research fellow." "With the appointment, Bridge/ACMCU has effectively become a branch of...

    Harold Ford, Jr. a former U.S. Democratic lawmaker turned investment banker, threatened to sue Morgan Stanley after he was fired from the bank for inappropriate conduct. A spokeswoman told Reuters on Thursday that Ford had been fired, saying that he was let go for "conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies." The news of Ford's departure was first reported by the Huffington Post, which cited interviews with an unnamed woman who claimed Ford harassed her on a night several years ago. Ford issued a statement to multiple media outlets that denies any allegations and threatens legal...

    It’s not the first time I’ve heard it, but after reading this op-ed from Jay Kaganoff in the Washington Post, I’m guessing we’ll be seeing more of it. After the cacophony of calls for Hollywood moguls and media figures to lose their jobs and elected officials to resign or be removed following allegations of sexual assault and harassment, it was inevitable that Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas’ name would eventually come up. Kaganoff titles his piece, Fellow conservatives, it’s time to call on Clarence Thomas to resign. The author makes at least a partially convincing case, depending on where...

This kind of marketing scheme is the reason we currently have a sexual predator in the White House, Tingle continued, pleading in the note for the ice cream parlor to reconsider the logo design.

    Well, it looks like the sexual harassment quake that’s rippled through various industries is taking another shot at the Democratic Party. This societal moment in which scores of women are coming out of hiding to detail their experiences with sexual harassment and abuse has taken down Hollywood moguls, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, Mark Halperin, and other big names in media. Roy Moore, the Republican Alabama Senate candidate, was a high-profile target for the Left. That’s been blunted after Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) faced sexual misconduct accusations; Conyers settled a claim in 2015 to the tune...

    Houston, TX — It was 2013. Kermit Gosnell had just been convicted of murder and illegal late-term abortions when Operation Rescue released its shocking report on similar behavior at a Houston, Texas, abortion facility based on eye-witness accounts of several clinic employees. Making headlines were the sensational allegations that abortionist Douglas Karpen had twisted the heads nearly off late-term babies who survived abortions done beyond the legal limit. Yet, the credible allegations of sexual harassment and abuse also made by these same women were missing from the reporting.It was actually the sexual harassment of female clinic employees that prompted one...
