  • ‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar claims Hillary Clinton was 'real victim’ of Monica Lewinsky affair

    Fox News ^ | 09/22/2021 | Brian Flood
    "The View" co-host Joy Behar on Wednesday dismissed the notion that Monica Lewinsky was a victim of her high-profile affair with former President Bill Clinton, declaring that instead Hillary Clinton and America are the ones who deserve the most sympathy. The daytime gabfest discussed Lewinsky as one of the first victims of cancel culture after the former White House intern’s affair with Clinton and his subsequent impeachment in 1998 for lying under oath. But the liberal host said Hillary Clinton suffering consequences in 2016 over the saga was the real tragedy.
  • Candace Owens Says Juneteenth Gives Black People 'Perpetual Victim Mentality'

    Conservative political pundit Candace Owens said she won't be celebrating the new federal holiday of Juneteenth, suggesting that the move to commemorate the end of slavery in the U.S. is just the Democrats trying to "repackage segregation." In a series of tweets posted after President Joe Biden signed the bill officially making June 19 a national holiday, Owens said she will only be celebrating Independence Day on July 4 instead of the date on which the last slaves were told they were free in 1865. Owens also suggested the holiday will train Black people to see themselves as "being separate...

    The mass shooting in Atlanta on March 16, which took the lives of six Asian women among the eight victims, appears to be a one-off event – the violent act of a deeply troubled 21-year-old man who, according to what he told the police, was trying to wipe away sexual temptation, in the form of massage parlors that he felt guilty patronizing.But that’s not how the incident was treated by the Asian American commentariat. Instead, a consensus quickly formed among journalists, scholars, and cultural figures writing op-eds and giving broadcast interviews that the shooting represented a pervasive, historical victimization by...

    A woman who allegedly crashed into a New York City Police Department officer during a drunk-driving incident, killing him, apologized as she was led away from a police precinct in handcuffs. Jessica Beauvais, 32, was charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter, reckless endangerment, leaving an accident resulting in death, and driving while intoxicated, the NYPD told news outlets on Tuesday. The crash left 14-year NYPD veteran Anastasio Tsakos dead. The Epoch Times has contacted the NYPD for comment. Beauvais was driving on a suspended driver’s license during the time of the crash, officials said, adding that in all, her...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Goodbye, sunshine. Hello, study sessions. Colleges around the U.S. are scaling back spring break or canceling it entirely to discourage partying that could spread the virus and raise infection rates back on campus. Texas A&M University opted for a three-day weekend instead of a whole week off. The University of Alabama and the University of Wisconsin-Madison also did away with spring break but are giving students a day off later in the semester. Even some students who have the time to get away aren’t in the mood. Michigan Tech’s weeklong break began Friday, but 21-year-old...

  • (White) Girl beaten unconscious in food court of Coastland Center mall in Naples (by black male)

    A man was arrested at the Coastland Center mall Tuesday after a witness said he beat a girl unconscious for spurning his advances. An officer from the Naples Police Department responded to a call at around 4 p.m. regarding a fight in the food court. Bruce Gordon, 37, told the officer that he had struck the victim, who police say is a juvenile, in self-defense after she had accosted him unprovoked. But a witness reported that Gordon had responded violently after the victim had refused Gordon’s flirtation with her in the Panda Express line. The witness said Gordon swore at...

    BELTON, S.C. (WSPA)- Belton mayor Tiffany Ownbey is pressing for a revenge porn law in South Carolina after she says she was a victim. Years ago, Tiffany Ownbey was in a relationship with a man who used his cell phone to secretly record a private intimate encounter with her without her consent, according to Ownbey’s attorney Druanne White. White said the man later revealed to Ownbey that he had the recording and threatened to distribute it if she broke up with him. Ownbey told him she would press charges. “I felt violated. I felt hurt, anger,” Ownby said. “There’s no...

    Believing they had stopped a stolen car after a miles-long pursuit, two California sheriff’s deputies tried to arrest a carjacking victim... Body camera video from the November incident begins mid-chase, during which authorities said David Ward, 52, twice stopped for deputies only to flee again. Speeds at one point reached 73 mph before a deputy, trailed by two officers from the Sebastopol Police Department, stopped Ward at a dead-end in Bloomfield, about a 30-minute drive southwest of Santa Rosa. Deputies Charlie Blount and Jason Little, veterans with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, tried to extract Ward from the car, but...

    Alan Dershowitz has filed a federal defamation claim against Virginia Giuffre, attacking as maliciously false her assertion that she was sexually trafficked to the famed Harvard professor by Jeffrey Epstein when she was a minor. Dershowitz says he had never even met Giuffre, much less had sex with her. It is a counterclaim to Giuffre’s own defamation lawsuit against him, which says Dershowitz has repeatedly and falsely branded her a liar for accusing him of using her for sex. **SNIP** Among the Epstein friends she says she was instructed to have sex with were Dershowitz and Prince Andrew, both of...

    One thing lawmakers should consider when they pass a law isn’t just how it will be enforced but also how that enforcement will sway people’s behavior. For example, the idea behind the death penalty is, in part, that executing people will dissuade others from committing such heinous crimes. That’s the goal.However, sometimes the enforcement may actually push people into behaving very differently than originally intended.A case last week in Connecticut is just such an example. Sgt. Jennifer Pinto said police were called to Reynolds Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday on a report of a car burglary that involved...

    An excellent in-depth article about the tribalism and victim pandering current in our society. ...The Virtuous Victim possesses a basic goodness that brings life to members of the multiculturalist clan. But as ­Durkheim observed, totems operate in a binary system: The sacred is under constant threat by the profane. The profane forces are in radical opposition to the totem, and they can sometimes take on form as an anti-totem. Members of the clan honor the totem by protecting it from pollution by the anti-totem. The Twitter discussion of the Smollett case brought out some of the multiculturalist clan’s anti-totems. Celebrities...

    April Ryan, the White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks and a CNN analyst, said Friday she has to fight for her "survival" asking questions at the White House. CNN host Wolf Blitzer was leading a discussion about regimes around the world that suppress and even kill journalists when Ryan made her comment. Blitzer asked specifically about President Donald Trump joking with Russian President Vladimir Putin "about so-called fake news" at the G-20 summit in Japan. "Wolf as someone who has to fight everyday for her survival for asking questions at the White House, it's atrocious," Ryan said. Ryan,...

This year’s recipient, Hillary Clinton, is a role model for women in politics, in the workplace and in society as she strives to make our democracy equitable for all people, especially women and girls. Who other than the AFT would give an award to a woman as corrupt (and tired) as old Hilz? Hillary begins speech: “I’m so tired, I can barely...

    I don’t wish to be unkind. But facts are facts. A victim is someone who has something bad happen to him, totally against his will and without any say or control in the matter. Suicide does not “happen” to someone. It’s something one does to oneself. Most of us are drowning in virtue-signaling and political correctness — so much so that we can’t even see it. It seems cool to mourn people who kill themselves even though you never knew them. How do we know we would have liked and admired them had we even known them personally? Consider some...

    The New York Times is facing blowback on social media after publishing an essay by an African-American reporter who accused white women of racism for not ceding space on city sidewalks to black men. In a Wednesday essay titled "Was That Racist," reporter Greg Howard singled out white women for forcing him "off the sidewalk completely" when walking towards him, not allowing a straight path. "In seven years of living and walking here, I’ve found that most people walk courteously — but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not," Howard writes.

    Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about...

    The former director of data science for the Democratic National Committee on Wednesday snapped back at Hillary Clinton after she accused the DNC of giving her "nothing" during the 2016 presidential race. Andrew Therriault took to Twitter to defend the DNC against accusations Hillary Clinton made on Wednesday during a Q&A session at Codecon, the Washington Examiner reported. "DNC data folks: today's accusations are fu%# bulls&A, and I hope you understand the good you did despite that nonsense," Andrew Therriault tweeted. "Private mode be damned, this is too important," he wrote in a second tweet. "I'm not willing to let...
