    Hillary Clinton wants to makes something very clear about her and Donald Trump: "We were not friends." "We knew each other, obviously, in New York," she told People magazine in an interview released on Wednesday. "I knew a lot of people." With daughter Chelsea by her side, the former secretary of state dismissed Trump's recent comments about her husband's infidelity. Trump has said that former President Bill Clinton is "one of the great abusers" of women. Clinton shrugged off Trump's comments as "politics," though not "the brand I approve of."

    A Pennsylvania judge has waved the starting flag on a sex assault trial for Bill Cosby -- ruling Wednesday night that there is no "immunity deal" barring the comedian from prosecution, as defense lawyers had tried to claim.

Cosby, 78, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of assaulting the woman, Andrea Constand. It will be the first criminal trial by a woman claiming he'd sexually abused her;...

Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump has recently made the sexual allegations against Clinton an issue in the White House race.

    Along with a haggard physical appearance and a lackluster speech, Bill Clinton did not exude much enthusiasm or energy on the stump this week.

Since that time, he remained in the public eye through a full schedule of lucrative speeches and the work of his non-profit foundation. He should be enjoying retirement and the riches that are associated with a career as a successful politician. Instead, he is facing increased scrutiny...

On Comedy Central, leftist "fake news" anchor Larry Wilmore said even if Cosby isn't convicted, a trial is a good thing.

    Bill Cosby, accused by more than 40 women of sexual assault, has filed a lawsuit claiming that several of them lied about him for financial gain. Mr Cosby, 78, is seeking unspecified monetary damages and said the women inflicted emotional distress. He called their accusations "nothing more than an opportunistic attempt to extract financial gain from him". He filed the countersuit after seven of his accusers went to court seeking damages from the actor...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has been the target of some particularly bizarre attacks in recent days by mainstream publications such as the New York Times and Rolling Stone Magazine. On Thursday, Jeb Lund wrote an article for Rolling Stone Magazine lamenting, for example, that Ted Cruz's book A Time for Truth "possesses only 66 end notes." Lund's article, which links to Soros-funded hyper-partisan publications ThinkProgress and MediaMatters, further complained (hysterically): Lund seems to make the point that Cruz's brilliance is "exceptionally nasty" because Lund can't really find anything in his book to dispute. Contrast Cruz's book with Barack Obama's...

    Given that there are so many legitimate incidents to choose from, why have so many high-profile cases ultimately fallen apart? If you were to ask an average person today to name a prominent story about rape on college campuses, odds are pretty good that among the top four or five replies would be the Duke lacrosse case, the Rolling Stone cover story about Jackie and the University of Virginia, Columbia University "mattress girl" Emma Sulkowicz and one of the stories from "The Hunting Ground." Yet in all of these stories, either the accusations were later shown to be a complete...

    Toward the end of the century, Westerners who fled their home countries to fight in Afghanistan or Bosnia shared a common characteristic: They were practically all men. Today’s militant recruits, however, represent a dramatic demographic shift. Most are just entering adulthood. They often meet terrorists online. They’ve asked in covert chats: Do you have hair dryers, or should I bring one? One in seven are women, according to a new report. An estimated 4,500 Westerners have ditched home for the Islamic State or other Sunni jihadist groups in Syria or Iraq. Researchers at New America, a nonpartisan think tank in...

    (CNN)—A court granted a motion Monday allowing for Bill Cosby and his former attorney to be deposed as part of a defamation lawsuit filed by model Janice Dickinson. Dickinson is one of dozens of women who have publicly accused Cosby of sexual misconduct over several decades. The comedian has said that Dickinson fabricated her story. He has not been charged and has vehemently denied wrongdoing. "In her complaint, Ms. Dickinson alleges that Mr. Cosby defamed her when he called her a liar after she publicly disclosed that Mr. Cosby had drugged and raped her in or about 1982. Ms. Dickinson...

    Legendary actor/comedian Bill Cosby talks about his support for President Obama in 2008 and now in 2012. "I'm disappointed at people who don't look at the woes and the trouble given to this man. People blatantly speaking out against his color, wasting time, starting up new stories about whether or not he was born here, saying things that they can't prove. ... People want to make [his job] as difficult as the one that Sisyphus had. And then when you see that he made promises and said things and the people who were supposed to be working with him didn't....
  • Dear Whoopi Goldberg: What the Bible Has to Say about Abortion

    Recently, Whoopi Goldberg made the bold announcement that the Bible has nothing to say about the subject of abortion. An audacious statement, especially since Ms. Goldberg has no scholarly credentials in the field of theology. But it should be noted that Ms. Goldberg is not alone in this belief; other abortion advocates have made such pronouncements as well as made the claim that since the Bible is silent on the issue it must, therefore, be licit.While it is true that the Bible certainly does not explicitly use the term abortion that does not mean that it has nothing to say...
