    Rep. Lauren Boebert's son called 911 in December to report that his father, Jayson Boebert, had gotten physical with him and was "throwing" him around the house and that he didn't know why. Minutes after the call ended — while Garfield County Sheriff's Office deputies were on their way to their home — the teen called again to take the accusations back, with Lauren Boebert jumping on the phone to say her son "doesn't need help." Jayson Boebert denied to the deputies — and to Insider — that he had gotten physical with the teen. … the congresswoman is suing...

    The Department of Justice has filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court seeking a review of a lower court decision that struck down a federal law banning people under domestic violence restraining orders from owning firearms. A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last month that people under domestic violence restraining orders retain their constitutional right to own firearms, finding that the federal law prohibiting them from doing so was unconstitutional under the Supreme Court’s landmark New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen decision. Attorney General Merrick Garland had promised to seek...

    UMOJA, Kenya — Pilot Lenaigwanai covers her mouth as she speaks. She is trying to hide her broken tooth, a bitter reminder of all she endured before finding refuge at a shelter for abuse survivors in northern Kenya. (The Sun Monster) The mother of three arrived here in July after being forced from her home by escalating violence. Her husband was abusive even before the drought that’s now ravaging Kenya’s arid north, the worst in decades. When the family’s 68 cattle — their only means of survival — died, the abuse became impossible to bear. “He was visibly frustrated and...

Every conversation we had he had to bring up vaccines or COVID or 5G or EMFs or something or just anything ridiculous you could think of,” Rebecca Lanis said. “If any of you have relatives like this you need to start monitoring them,” she said. “If they have guns you should hide them or something because these people are dangerous.”

Bauer promptly released a statement announcing he was appealing the suspension, thus becoming the first player to appeal punishment through MLB's domestic violence policy.

    On March 23, 2020 the National Task Force to End Sexual and Domestic Violence issued an Alert with a startling coronavirus claim: “Survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault are facing extreme danger and risk.” The Task Force also asserted, without providing any evidence, that “shelters and victim service organizations are now grappling with the unprecedented challenge of communally housing and providing services for survivors.” The United Nations issued even more alarming claims, predicting a “shadow pandemic of violence,” “alarming upsurge,” “one of the greatest human rights violations,” a “horrifying global surge” against women, and more.

    In 1977, 16-year-old Lliana Gay Adank and 17-year-old Eric Shawn Goldstrand, both North Eugene High School students, went fishing and had a picnic and never returned.

    A woman marries a man when she trusts him and expects to have a lifelong relationship with him (and vice versa). If a woman has not reached a level of trust and commitment with a man to make him her husband, she should also not roam around the country with him. When a young woman is murdered, it is often because she is leaving a boyfriend. She is especially at risk if she is far away from family and friends. What I have written would have been considered common sense 60 years ago but is now attached as judgmental or...

    The effort to paint California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder as a domestic abuser has failed. In reality, the whole thing was dead on the water – but as we have all learned, when a right-leaning candidate seems like they might defeat a Democrat in a high-profile race, you can always count on allegations of mistreating women.The Los Angeles Times reported that prosecutors “have declined to pursue a criminal complaint against Larry Elder for allegations of brandishing a gun and domestic abuse, in a 6-year-old case related to statements made by his former fiancée.”Los Angeles authorities refrained from pursuing a prosecution...
