    John Weaver, a veteran Republican operative who co-founded the Lincoln Project, declared in a statement to Axios on Friday that he sent “inappropriate,” sexually charged messages to multiple men. “To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry. They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you,” Weaver said. “The truth is that I'm gay,” he added. “And that I have a wife and two kids who I love. My inability to reconcile those two truths has led...

    Lisa Montgomery, a convicted killer who strangled a pregnant woman and then cut the unborn baby from her womb, was executed in a federal prison in Indiana early Wednesday. She was the first woman executed in the federal system in nearly seven decades. Montgomery was convicted of strangling a Missouri woman who was eight months pregnant in 2004 and taking the unborn baby, who survived. The 52-year-old woman was pronounced dead at 1:31 a.m. Wednesday after receiving a lethal injection at the federal prison complex in Terre Haute, Indiana, the Federal Bureau of Prisons said.

    Social media giant Twitter frequently censors pro-life conservatives but is refusing to remove a tweet from communist China celebrating forcing women to have abortions. As LifeNews.com reported, the Chinese Communist government celebrated a decline in births Thursday in a region where it has aggressively persecuted minorities by forcing them to abort their unborn babies. Chinese Embassy in the U.S. treated the report as good news, even highlighting how its government’s “process of eradicating [religious] extremism” contributed to the declining birth rates. The Chinese Communist Party’s eradication “process” reportedly involves massive persecution of Uygur Muslims in the Xinjiang region by detaining...

    It takes a lot to rattle Leena Ghani. As an artist turned activist helping to raise the voices of Pakistan’s women, she has often fielded abuse, threats and harassment. But when she learned, on a morning in late September, that police had charged her for criminal defamation, linked to Pakistan’s most high-profile #MeToo case, Ghani says she was shaken. “In terms of silencing and demonising people speaking out against sexual assault, it was a new low even for Pakistan,” she says. Ghani was not alone. Eight others were also named in the case, facing three years in jail for criminal...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Former Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Shauna Bishop is headed to jail for having sex with a 16-year-old boy. After she’s released, she’ll have to register as a sex offender. Bishop was arrested in 2019 after the teen’s father, who also worked for the department, expressed concern to his ex-wife about Bishop’s relationship with the boy. The father claimed Bishop was “grooming” the teen. Bishop pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse in July. The other four charges she was facing were dismissed. On Wednesday, Bishop was sentenced to one year in county jail, five years...

    Among the indignities 12-year-old Anthony Washington endured at the church camp overseen by Reverend Raphael Warnock: counselors who tossed urine on him and locked him outside his cabin overnight. Washington, now 30, recounted the events in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon and said his experience at the camp resulted in a 2003 lawsuit that ended two years later, when Washington says he and his family received a large financial settlement. Washington’s account of the 2002 events provides the first direct insight into the alleged abuse and neglect that transpired at Camp Farthest Out, which Warnock oversaw as senior...

    It's confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 is an anti-Donald Trump movie, which is something I've said about the movie for a while now.And I'm guessing that is the real reason "they" wanted it released in December and didn't want to wait until next June where "they" said the June release would be stale, which is because WW84 is getting released during the election.The confirmation Wonder Woman 1984 is anti-Trump comes from the reviews for the movie that are now out as press screenings were held and the press are allowed to post reviews.In their Wonder Woman 1984 review, Collider offers...

    On Sunday, new sexual misconduct allegations were brought forward against New York governor Andrew Cuomo by one of his former advisers. The serious allegations were made by progressive activist Lindsey Boylan who came forward in a series of tweets. “Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched,” she said. “I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.” “Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faced criticism for fundraising off of the #MeToo movement in 2018 after knowingly hiring senior aide Sam Hoyt following Hoyt's extramarital affair with a 19-year-old intern. SNIP Months later, liberal-leaning outlet Slate called out Cuomo for capitalizing on support for the #MeToo movement in a fundraising email. SNIP Shortly after Hoyt's resignation in 2017, Cuomo got into a spat with a reporter pressing him about whether his office was taking steps to curb sexual harassment in state government. Cuomo accused the reporter, a woman, of doing "a disservice to women" by asking the question.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is lucky he’s a Democrat — otherwise Lindsey Boylan’s charge that he “sexually harassed” her might lead to political challenges and media shame. “Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched,” the former Cuomo aide, now running for Manhattan beep, tweeted. It’s a serious charge, one Cuomo flatly denies. The details? Boylan won’t say. She cites no specific allegations and provides no evidence. She won’t even respond to requests for further comment. “I have no interest in talking to journalists,” she declares. “I am about validating the experience of countless women and making...

    The Democratic Party obviously enjoys this privilege; look at the protective shield they placed around Joe and Hunter Biden. But Hollywood gets Iron Dome-levels of protection, especially when homophobic rape threats are hurled. Yeah, you read that right. Debra Messing will probably not lose any acting jobs over this, but wishing that President Trump gets raped in prison is pretty unhinged. You all know that. It’s truly despicable, but the irony is thick here. "Let me be clear: I said nothing about LGBTQI/queer LOVE. Rape is an act of violence. Trump has perpetrated violence on hundreds of millions of people....
  • Democrats are Hypocrites about Sexual Assault Allegations

    f they were principled and actually cared about protecting women, then Democrats would be doing whatever they could to openly and honestly discuss the allegations surrounding Joe Biden’s conduct. That would be honorable, and, I think, widely applauded by most of America. But that’s not what they did. Instead, they’ve reneged on their principles and launched a full-throated defense of Joe Biden. Elizabeth Warren said she believes him and, in doing so, showed that she has completely forgotten what she said during the Kavanaugh confirmation. Biden, being senile, hasn’t said much other than that he denies it. Kamala Harris is...

She laments that being an out and proud lesbian is no longer cool and notes how women who like women are increasingly “coming out as nonbinary or as men” instead.Herzog noted this just days before “Juno” and “The Umbrella Academy” star Ellen Page announced on December 1 that she is...
