    “Women are very special. I think it’s a very special time, a lot of things are coming out and I think that’s good for our society and I think it’s very, very good for women and I’m very happy a lot of these things are coming out. I’m very happy it’s being exposed.” — President Trump, remarks to reporters, Nov. 21, 2017 Sexual misconduct by powerful men has all but taken over the news, with Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and senatorial hopeful Roy Moore (R-Ala.) among the politicians on this growing list. Trump vociferously has...
  • Washington Post Reports On 'Regretful' Trump Voters To Fit Their Narrative

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/22/17 | Daniel Allott
    The Post identifies the participants as “Trump voters,” which is ostensibly true. But they are an unrepresentative sample. What better way to find Trump voters who regret their vote than to talk to non-Republicans. The majority of Trump voters are Republicans, but only a third of the Trump voter focus group participants are Republicans, which may explain why only one participant said she was still fully supportive of the president. The headline says, “Trump voters” but the piece focuses only on women, with the opinions of one man tacked on at the end. The Post doesn’t explain the gender breakdown...

    Sunday night, I watched Ian Bremmer on Charlie Rose’s show discussing the goings-on around the world on his one-of-a-kind all-black background television set. Little did I know that that was likely Rose’s last show of his famed career. There seems to be a new revelation each and every morning these days. A new grotesque story about a man with power and influence taking advantage of a vulnerable woman. After Harvey Weinstein’s story finally came to light and opened us up to the true underbelly of Hollywood’s predators, we have heard the unbelievably tragic and heartbreaking stories, then subsequent downfalls of...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    A pervasive anti-Conservative attitude has long been present in awards shows and ceremonies, but the exclusion of women who do not lean full tilt for the “progressive” ideology is more damaging to society than most. It is sad but true that young women look to places like Glamour for role-models and information, yet all they are being presented is carbon-copy ideologies in the guise of “strong women.” This year’s winners included such divisive figures as Maxine Waters, the organizers of the Women’s March, and Samantha Bee (who started the “Nasty Woman” T-shirt campaign to raise $1 million for Planned Parenthood)....

    Newsweek ^ | November 19, 2017 | Jason Le Miere
    Donald Trump would not win the presidential election if it were held today because of the numerous sexual allegations against him and the “Me Too” movement that has swept the country in recent weeks, Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier said Sunday. More than a dozen women came forward during last year’s presidential campaign to accuse Trump of sexual assault or harassment. He was also caught on an infamous “Access Hollywood” recording bragging about sexually assaulting women. Yet, just weeks later, he was elected president following a victory over Hillary Clinton. However, in the wake of a wave of women coming forward...

    GADSDEN, Ala. – This evening, the Judge Roy Moore Campaign for U.S. Senate released the statements of twelve women who are coming forward as character witnesses for Roy Moore. Here are their statements: “I have known Roy Moore for about forty years. Roy and I briefly dated when I was in my twenties. While I was around Roy, either just the two of us or with other people, he was always a true gentleman treating me with respect and courtesy. I can honestly say that I never have seen or heard any inappropriate remarks or behaviors while he was around...

    Army Radio reporter Hadas Shteif at a Shabbatarbut event in Ness Ziona claimed former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert sexually harassed her several years ago. Speaking to Amalia Dwek, the event organizer, Shteif said the incident occurred when she worked at the Israel Broadcasting Authority's studios. After the Shabbatarbut event, Shteif tweeted, "It is all true. I spoke the truth to many people. I was grossed out. I have not forgotten. Because of what I went through, I believe the words of every woman who dares to speak up 30 years later." .....

    Two Fort Hood soldiers who went for a hike Monday evening at Chalk Ridge Falls Park ended up staying the night after getting lost, according to the Bell County Sheriff’s Department. The two soldiers, both women, were hiking at the park along Stillhouse Hollow Lake when it began to get dark and they lost their way, said Bell County Sheriff’s Department spokesman T.J. Cruz. They called 911 when they got lost. Deputies searched with dogs for the soldiers. “They were hiking along the fence line when they took a left instead of a right,” Cruz said. “They were never in...

    RUSH: Okay. I just have one more thing here before we swerve back into the sexual harassment story. And I have to tell you, folks, there’s a part of this that is beginning to make me nervous, as an umbrella thing, not specifically. I’m just spotting a trend, and I know you have too. I’m sure I’m not the only person in this crowd. But you know, this business of sexual abuse is quickly approaching the same dynamics as racism in our culture. And just as racism is a horrible thing to be accused of, and depending on how it’s...

    The New York Post ^ | November 17, 2017 | Bob Fredericks
    A young woman whose brutal rape and lengthy fight for justice spurred Sen. Al Franken to sponsor a law to help sexual assault victims wants his name off the legislation after a woman accused him of groping her. Abby Honold, 22, said she was stunned on Thursday when she learned of the arch-liberal Franken’s piggish behavior — and said she decided to part ways with the hypocritical creep. “He was one of the few people who listened to me and actually let me talk,” Honold told The Washington Post. “It felt really validating to be heard and to see something...

    Outnumbered male college students in Texas have created a sharp gender gap in statewide completion rates – and, according to the state’s higher education commissioner, a campus cultural problem for men. “We’re getting to the point where males feel uncomfortable on some college campuses,” said Raymund Paredes, who leads Texas’ higher education coordinating board. Paredes spoke Thursday at the University of Houston System’s board meeting to address progress toward broader statewide goals of having 60 percent of young adults in Texas earn a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2030. He identified several target populations that are lagging in achieving those...

    How different are we in the ways we think when comparing us fun loving gun concealed carrying guys to our counterparts/our loved ones. There have been many articles and educated papers on the subject. Yes, men are from Mars and women are from Venus, so they (sociologists) say. Most of the time me and the misses are totally on topic. But once in a while when we’re getting ready to head out, we’re just totally not thinking the same way. As my priority is safety in mind for me and the family. Have a look at this video of whats...

    Twitter has a daily dosage of women and men who are speaking – from decades ago to last week –about being sexually assaulted. More often than not, they are speaking in great, precise detail and naming their attackers. It's like, as one Twitter user said, that Hugh Hefner's creepy ‘pervdom’ was serving as a force field of protection and now that he's died, everything vile has come out to play in the sunlight outside of the Playboy Mansion.

    Donald Trump. Bill O'Reilly. Harvey Weinstein. Michael Oreskes. Kevin Spacey. Casey Affleck. Louis C.K. Roy Moore. Larry Nassar. The list keeps growing, and we know that for every big name accused of sexual misconduct there are countless more in the stories of millions of women who have been coming forward to say “me too.” In this moment, it is crucial for men to be speaking publicly and unequivocally in support of standards for sexual behavior based on respect, meaningful mutual consent, and awareness of differences in power. But the scope and depth of the problem require more than this.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Three of the four Democratic women who represent New Hampshire in Congress voiced support Thursday for an ethics probe into allegations that Minnesota Sen. Al Franken forcibly kissed and groped a woman more than a decade ago while they were on a USO tour of the Middle East. The fourth delegation member, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, is a member of the Senate Ethics Committee, which may be conducting an investigation, and said she could not comment on “specific cases that may come before the committee.” WMUR has learned that Shaheen, Sen. Maggie Hassan and U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter...

    But rewrite-room excuses didn’t fly in the 24/7 reality of the campaign, and the “joke” almost killed Franken’s campaign. It landed on the eve of the Minnesota convention where he hoped to be chosen as the Democratic nominee to face Coleman. He made the dangerous move of addressing the controversy in a raw convention speech. “It kills me that things I said and wrote sent a message to some of my friends in this room and people in this state that they can’t count on me to be a champion for women, a champion for all Minnesotans, in this campaign...

    While others in my family are already planning Christmas Eve dinner, I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Halloween has come and gone. At this point, I am simply thankful that my husband and son threw away the carved pumpkin on the front step rather than leaving it to decay in place, as happened a few years ago. Thanksgiving arrives next week, and, though we are hosting a dinner, I am not sure how many guests will show up, I have not laid out the seating chart, and I have no idea what...

    According to reports that former Vice President Joe Biden is making no attempt whatsoever to deny, the internet’s favorite uncle is moving closer and closer to a formal 2020 presidential bid. Of course, his vigilance in criticizing the dealings of the Trump administration, increasingly frequent appearances on late night shows, vocal social media presence and, most recently, an appearance at Glamour’s Women of the Year summit in New York on Monday hardly leave room for doubt, but Politico’s report last week made it start to feel real. And yet, speaking of the women’s summit, beneath the former veep’s cuddly and...

    After Chelsea Clinton's mother, Hillary Rodham Clinton, lost a historical, and contentious, presidential campaign, women everywhere were responding to sexism not only in politics, but across our culture. Senator Elizabeth Warren launched a feminist rallying cry around "Nevertheless, She Persisted," a statement used against her by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell when she tried to speak up against Jeff Sessions' confirmation as Attorney General. For her part, Chelsea Clinton announced that she would be foraying into picture books, and it seemed like just the right move for the advocate and author. Already the author of It's Your World, a middle...
