I was in shock, but I kept walking.” ============================================================================== A former staffer for Democratic New York Gov.

    Bill Clinton secretly met socialite-turned-accused sex-trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell for an “intimate” dinner in 2014 — well after reports that she and perv pal Jeffrey Epstein had abused at least one teen, a report said Tuesday. The former president joined Maxwell — who is now cooling her heels in a Brooklyn jail cell on charges involving the alleged sex abuse of young women — and a small group of friends for the meal in Los Angeles after a celebrity gala that February, sources told the Daily Beast. “This is an intimate dinner with Clinton in LA,” an aghast source told the...

    On Netflix the new documentary ‘’Athlete A’’ is a very well made and smartly constructed documentary covering the recent exposure of the longterm sexual abuse that was taking place with USA Gymnastics. The title refers to the initial witness who anonymously came forward to state on the record how she, as a gymnast, had been the victim of abuse, and it is a detailed account of how the institutionalized permissiveness of abuse in the organization was exposed. The tale of how an official USA Gymnastics doctor was able to abuse young girls for decades, and be shielded by those who...

    The news about Joe Biden has taken on a completely surreal quality. For a long time, the headlines were about his declining mental state, which is becoming hard to ignore. This was bizarre enough in a presumptive Democrat candidate for the presidency. Then, Tara Reade dropped a bombshell, alleging that the same politician known for publicly groping and sniffing women and children had sexually assaulted her. The media assiduously ignored Reade's allegations as long as they could and eventually reported on them only to dismiss both Reade and the allegations.

    LEBANON, Ohio — UPDATE: 3/13 9:38 a.m. John Austin Hopkins's trial resumed Friday morning with both sides presenting closing arguments. Before court let out Thursday, jurors heard from Dr. Fred Peterson, Ph.D. “[Hopkins] acknowledges some type of sexual behavior occurred," Peterson's written report said. "His results suggest he has numerous sexual 'thinking errors' which he uses to help him explain the sexual behavior that occurred.” Peterson's report also said Hopkins's mental behavior does not allow him to accept responsibility for his actions, which could hinder any treatment which might be suggested. Once both sides present closing arguments Friday, the jurors...

    Anyone telling you that drag culture is okay for children is downright insane. The American Library Association has forced drag queens into public libraries under the guise of "inclusivity" and it has now devolved into whatever the hell this is (spoiler alert: it's a crime called "corruption of a minor"). -snip Matt Walsh is taking some heat for linking libertarian conservatism to the decline of Western culture, but is he wrong? The libertarians I know have zero concern for the morality of our nation. Some that I know don't believe in any age of consent, nor do they believe pornography...

    HARRISBURG — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg filed for bankruptcy Wednesday, becoming the first diocese in the state to seek protection from financial claims in the aftermath of a 2018 grand jury report that revealed decades of sexual abuse and cover-up by the church’s top leaders. And, said a lawyer for the diocese, it’s not likely to be the last. Citing the fallout from that probe and recent court decisions that opened new avenues for some victims with time-barred claims to sue, attorney Matt Haverstick said Harrisburg, like each of the state’s eight other Catholic dioceses, faces the prospect...

He has since lost his job. Diggs was also a pastor at the Hananiah Lutheran Church in Buffalo. “There are human frailties in life and people make bad decisions and mistakes,” Defense Attorney Tom...

    Ohio congressman and former Ohio State assistant wrestling coach Jim Jordan has been accused of participating in the cover-up of widespread sexual abuse in OSU’s wrestling program. Jordan was accused by Adam DiSabato, who was the team captain in the late 1980s and early 1990s. DiSabato was appearing in front of a hearing in the Ohio legislature as a witness for House Bill 249, which would waive the statute of limitations and allow the OSU athletes who had been abused to sue the university. DiSabato told the House Civil Justice Committee that several team officials, including Jordan, were aware that...

    Kristine Johnson is suing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for reporting her husband’s sexual abuse of an underage girl. The lawsuit is an attempt to hold the church responsible for “loss of income, emotional distress and her family’s loss of her husband’s companionship,” to the tune of $9.5 million — plus $40,000 to cover their legal expenses. Johnson claims the church went against its principles of confidential confession when it reported her husband’s admission that he sexually abused an underage girl. Johnson learned of her husband’s crime in 2016. She and her husband responded, according to the...

    Planned Parenthood lobbyists may have killed a California bill that would help protect young women from sexual abuse. California Assembly Bill 1030 received bipartisan support when it passed the state Assembly earlier this year. It was written in response to sexual abuse allegations against a University of Southern California (USC) gynecologist who is accused of abusing at least 700 patients in the past 30 years. The bill is informed consent legislation. It would ensure first-time gynecological patients understand what is supposed to happen during a pelvic examination and provide contact information to report abuses. Despite seemingly strong support, the bill...

But Mr Gilio’s immediate grasp of the situation saved the little girl lying bound behind the toilet door. .... With the scalpel-style knife in his hand, Sampieri lunged at Mr Gilio, slashing his stomach.

    CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WBOY) — West Virginia State Police have charged a Lewis County man with sexual abuse of a minor after receiving a complaint of his actions involving a 1-year-old girl. In May, troopers conducted an interview with Daytona McClain, 22, of Horner, regarding allegations of sexual abuse against him, according to a criminal complaint. The investigation into McClain began when an unnamed individual told troopers that McClain had told her during a phone conversation that he performed lewd acts on the 1-year-old child, while at an apartment in Clarksburg, troopers said.
