    “I did suffer from sexual harassment from older men and men in power. And they made it very clear some of the exchanges that would have to happen in order for me to be promoted there. And I was so young, so naive. I didn't even really understand what was going on. I knew that I had to leave,” Emily Miller told Fox News’s Howard Kurtz on Sunday. . . . The New York attorney general’s office is reportedly investigating how the network handled sexual harassment allegations. The revelation came after NBCUniversal announced that NBC News Chairman Andy Lack was...

    Three potentially interesting background notes on the Tara Reade story: 1. She is not merely alleging "sexual assault". She is alleging rape. The FBI definition of rape is as follows: “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.” https://www.justice.gov/archives/opa/blog/updated-definition-rape If Biden were a Republican the press would surely know the correct word. They might even rediscover their dictionary if he were a Democrat who already served two terms and was no longer potentially eligible to...
  • We'll Never Be Allowed to See Tara Reade's 1993 Sexual Harassment Complaint Against Joe Biden

    For the first time, Joe Biden personally denied Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against him during an appearance on “Morning Joe.” “It never happened,” Joe said. Multiple witnesses have come forward corroborating Reade’s claim, saying that they were told about it after it happened, or some years later in the mid-1990s. Reade’s allegations were bolstered when she said that her mother called in to Larry King Live to anonymously ask for advice about her situation—and the Media Research Center uncovered video of the call.Reade says she filed a complaint about Biden’s actions at the time, but nothing was done about...

    Bill Clinton claims that his affair with Monica Lewinsky was one of the 'things I did to manage my anxieties'. The former President suggests, in an explosive documentary seen by DailyMailTV, that he had the fling with the ex-White House intern while he was in office because it helped with his own issues. Bill reveals that at the time he met Lewinsky the pressure of the job made him feel like a boxer who had done 30 rounds and he looked at Lewinsky as 'something that will take your mind off it for a while'.

    While every single 2020 Democratic presidential candidate avidly supports a woman’s “right” to abortion, it seems some are considerably more comfortable with calling the procedure what it is: killing a child. Old sins cast especially long shadows when you run for president, as former New York Mayor and latecomer to the 2020 Democratic primary race, Michael Bloomberg has discovered, and an incident in the 90’s in which he rather crassly referred to abortion is making headlines once more. According to The New York Times, the former New York City Mayor was recently forced to address the heartless, decades-old statements made...

    Ronan Farrow says twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton iced him out upon learning of his investigation into the accusations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein, noting how people will turn “if you threaten the centers of power or the sources of funding around them.” The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ronan Farrow told the Financial Times that Clinton slowly iced him out upon learning of his investigation into Weinstein, a Clinton ally and major Clinton Foundation donor. Weinstein also donated to groups that supported Clinton’s failed presidential bid

    Ambassador to the EU and recent House "impeachment inquiry" witness Gordon Sondland vehemently denies allegations of sexual harassment made by three women, concerning behavior before he entered public life, and has announced that he is not resigning. The allegations carry a strong odor similar to the smell that came from Christine Blasey -Ford and other women who attempted to derail the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.  Ashe Schow, writing in The Daily Wire, connects the dots: YouTube screen grab (cropped). The media are once against using sexual misconduct claims to tarnish the reputation of a man connected to the Trump...

    Heidi Brown, a retired U.S. Army major general, argued sexual assault allegations Gen. John Hyten (nominated to be the next Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) lack merit in a piece for the Wall Street Journal published Thursday. "Army Col. Kathryn Spletstoser's accusations are graphic and nauseating. But they are discredited by evidence," Brown writes in the Journal. "I have reviewed the written record of the case, including a redacted report from the Army Inspector General Office, and spoken with people involved. I served at Stratcom headquarters in Omaha, Neb., with both Gen. Hyten and Col. Spletstoser, including...

    On Monday, The New Yorker printed a lengthy piece by reporter Jane Mayer about the sad fate of former Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn. Franken resigned from the Senate in 2017 after a bevy of women accused him of sexual harassment; their accounts ranged from unwanted kisses to unsolicited a-- grabbing. In the midst of the #MeToo movement, Franken stepped down, all the while decrying President Trump's own record of allegations concerning mistreatment of women. At the time, there were two possible interpretations of events. The first was more inspiring: After decades of defending sexual misconduct by powerful Democratic figures, Democrats...

    A faculty member at Cape Breton University has been terminated for demanding sex, moose meat and lobster from a student who was struggling in his course in exchange for better grades. In an emailed response, university spokeswoman Lenore Parsley didn’t answer questions about the firing, the nature of the offence, details about the employee’s position and whether there had been other complaints about the employee. “Cape Breton University is committed to a safe and respectful campus for all of our community members,” Parsley said. “Any and all complaints follow a formal process, as indicated in our respectful campus policy. “We...

    Her allegations against her boss, who goes by the single name Muslim, as is common in Indonesia, began in 2013 when he took over as principal at the high school she worked at. According to the New York Times, Muslim made vulgar remarks against her and spread a rumor the two had been carrying on an affair. Nuril complained multiple times of receiving lewd phone calls from her boss and, in one instance, recorded him using explicit language and hounding her to have an affair – all without his knowledge. She gave the recording to a third person and eventually...

    What if I told you that Congressmen settled over 250 sexual harassment lawsuits using taxpayer money, and there was no way to find out who these Congressmen were? Would you believe me? The truth is that the situation is as described in the question. For decades members of Congress would use your taxpayer dollars to buy their way out of bad publicity. (Read, She Said A Powerful Congressman Harassed Her. Here’s Why You Didn’t Hear Her Story.) When a member of Congress was accused of sexual harassment, the case went to a secret court known as the Office of Compliance....

    McDonald’s has responded to mounting complaints about sexual harassment with employee training programs and a new anonymous reporting hotline. The Chicago-based fast-food chain sent a letter Monday to Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth detailing its efforts, in response to a letter Duckworth sent the company in December expressing her concerns about multiple sexual harassment complaints made by its restaurant employees.

    A former Secret Service agent assigned to the Vice President Joe Biden residence claims that the Service often had to protect female agents from him. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, “We had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President’s house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend’s asses.” The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family. “He would mess with every single woman or teen. It was horrible,” the agent said. According to the source, a Secret Service agent...

    A former Montgomery Township teacher could serve up to nearly a year in jail Somerset County jail after pleading guilty to third-degree endangering the welfare of a child for sending nude photos to students. Michelina Aichele, 30, of Hillsdale, a former English teacher, was arrested and charged in October after police and high school administration discovered sexual photos and conversations over text, email and social media between February and April 2018.

    Pressure has been mounting for congressional leaders to release the names of lawmakers who have settled sexual harassment claims at the taxpayers expense. House members from both parties as well as President Donald Trump have said that they believe Congress should disclose the settlements as it involves taxpayer money. Congress is a place that notoriously protects their own so many in the public don’t know what is exactly going on on Capitol Hill. Rep. Ron DeSantis from Florida said in an interview "It's taxpayer dollars at issue; taxpayers have a right to know how their money is being spent," He...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a “highly profitable scam” that “never lived up to the values it espoused,” according to former SPLC staffer Bob Moser. The New Yorker on Thursday published a scathing essay from Moser, now a Rolling Stone reporter, accusing the left-wing non-profit of “ripping off donors” while turning a blind eye to sexual harassment and racial discrimination within its own ranks. The SPLC fired co-founder Morris Dees on March 13 over unspecified conduct issues. The SPLC announced Dees’ firing after roughly two dozen SPLC employees previously signed a letter to the organization’s leadership expressing their...

    A good rule of thumb is that the more pious the progressive, the worse the hypocrisy. And behind every successful glass ceilling breaking Dem running on feminism and fumes, is a creepy male aide. Senator Kamala Harris had her #MeToo problem. Now it's Senator Gillibrand's turn. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), one of the most outspoken advocates of the #MeToo movement who has made fighting sexual misconduct a centerpiece of her presidential campaign, spent last summer pressing legislators to update Congress’ “broken” system of handling sexual harassment. At the same time, a mid-20s female aide to Gillibrand resigned in protest over...
