    It’s Harvey Weinstein’s brother, Bob’s turn in the hot seat. The co-founder of The Weinstein Company has been slapped with sexual harassment allegations of his own, as Hollywood continues to real from bombshell after bombshell. Variety reports: Amanda Segel, an executive producer of “Mist,” said Weinstein repeatedly made romantic overtures to her and asked her to join him for private dinners. The harassment began in the summer of 2016 and continued on and off for about three months until Segel’s lawyer, David Fox of Myman Greenspan, informed TWC executives — including COO David Glasser — that she would leave the show if Bob...

    There is much talk about sexual harassment and abuse these days. Many people are asking why victims did not come forward at the time when these events took place. Besides l'affaire Weinstein, there has been the unending saga of Bill Cosby and his sickening sexual escapades. However, I have my own story to tell.

    Harvey Weinstein has been removed as the head of the Weinstein Company following a bombshell investigation that uncovered decades of allegations of sexual harassment against him, and now The New Yorker has obtained audio of Weinstein confessing to groping a woman. In a confrontation recorded by the NYPD of Weinstein and Filipina-Italian model and aspiring actress Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, Weinstein is heard instructing Gutierrez to come into his hotel room and sit in the bathroom for five minutes and drink water while he showers. Gutierrez repeatedly tells Weinstein that she does not feel comfortable and asks him why he touched...

    Thanks to a recent speech by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, more people are discussing the real world repercussions of the eight-year war on due process waged by the Obama Department of Education. Out of that discussion, there is a consensus emerging, which recognizes that basic due process protections must be restored on our university campuses. These changes are particularly needed in the context of campus sexual harassment and sexual assault tribunals. But once due process is restored, we need to vigorously pursue campus prosecutions against those who knowingly and maliciously accuse others of sexual assault and/or sexual harassment. Proactive...

    When the 115th Congress took its first recess, members went home to their districts and in some cases to speak directly to their constituents via town halls. During recess members made news for one of two reasons: either they held a town hall which was packed with angry constituents or they opted not to hold an in-district event and were shamed by their constituents as a result. Republican members who were targeted in particular complained bitterly about organized and so-called paid protesters. They were supported by the White House in their characterization. President Trump tweeted that the protests were “planned...

    As masked leftists use clubs to shut down free speech at Berkeley and elsewhere, Democrats have unfortunately been reticent to condemn the activity. But Antifa violence is not the only kind of condemnable disruptive activity. Democrats should also disavow the organized campaign to harass Republican congressmen and stop Republican town halls. One group in the thick of this battle is “Indivisible.” The group was founded by a former staffer for Democratic Rep. Lloyd Doggett, and its COO, Matt Traidi, is the research coordinator for the Service Employees International Union. Indivisible provides these instructions on how to prevent other town hall...

    POST FALLS, Idaho — The nuns at St. Dominic's school and convent near Post Falls said teens have been trespassing on their property and verbally assaulted them for a long time. The nuns said the teens will come right into their main parking lot at St. Dominic’s. When nuns are just a couple of dozen yards away, the teens will swear and yell insults directly at them. The nuns who live at the convent said they believe the teens are going out of their way to harass them. "It's becoming more and more aggressive,” Sister Aimee Dominique said. The nuns...

    Attorneys general for the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland say they will sue President Trump on Monday, alleging that he has violated anti-corruption clauses in the Constitution by accepting millions in payments and benefits from foreign governments since moving into the White House. The lawsuit, the first of its kind brought by government entities, centers on the fact that Trump chose to retain ownership of his company when he became president. Trump said in January that he was shifting his business assets into a trust managed by his sons to eliminate potential conflicts of interests. But D.C....

    I couldn't believe it! There I was innocently watching "The Five", and the camera did a close-up on KG. Right before she started to speak, she looked deeply into my eyes with that "Hey, Big Boy" look, and I just knew she was lusting after my (68+ year old couch potato) bod. I don't ever remember having such a feeling of being cheapened 'like that' ever before. So I rewound the DVR and watched it again. Yep, I'm pretty sure that I was right. To confirm my suspicions, I rewound and watched it at least ten more times.. . ....

    Social media companies Facebook Inc., Alphabet Inc. and Twitter Inc. will have to amend their terms of service for European users within a month or face the risk of fines, a European Commission official said on Friday. U.S. technology companies have faced tight scrutiny in Europe for the way they do business, from privacy to how quickly they remove illegal or threatening content. The Commission and European consumer protection authorities will “take action to make sure social media companies comply with EU consumer rules,” the official said. The comments confirmed a Reuters report from Thursday. Germany, the most populous EU...

    Pharmaceutical entrepreneur Martin Shkreli was banned from Twitter on Sunday for alleged “harassment” after he asked a Teen Vogue writer on a date. The “harassment” began when Shkreli sent Lauren Duca, known for her piece about President-elect Donald Trump “gaslighting America” and defending the man who harassed Ivanka Trump on a plane, a private message inviting her to the inauguration as his date. Duca responded by publicly posting his message and writing, “I would rather eat my own organs.”

Ivanka, Jared and their 3 children were departing from JFK when the out-of-control passenger apparently took issue with the fact they decided to fly...
