  • Rolling Stone UVA RAPE story is identical to Senate testimony held on June 26 2014

    One of the student survivors I worked with, Jenna*, was gang-raped by five fraternity men early in her freshman year. Despite the severity of the assault and injuries she sustained, Jenna still experienced a feeling of personal responsibility. Looking for affirmation, she sought out peers and told her story. Sadly, each and every one of the friends she reached out to responded with varying denials of her experience; these responses worsened her feelings of self-blame – that she must be confused because that fraternity “is full of great guys”; that she must have made them think she was “down for...

    The Justice Department acknowledged that it misled a federal Appeals Court during oral arguments last month in a case reviewing whether the government should be able to secretly conduct electronic surveillance of Americans without a warrant. In a newly unsealed letter, a Justice Department lawyer told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that it spoke erroneously when describing the disclosure restrictions placed upon the FBI's use of so-called national security letters. NSLs, as they are often referred, can compel companies to hand over communications data or financial records of certain users to authorities conducting a national security...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is backing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his bid for a second term. Clinton appeared Thursday at a Manhattan rally with the Democratic incumbent and his pick for lieutenant governor, Kathy Hochul. Clinton says Cuomo is the "right leader at the right time." The rally was run by the Woman's Equality Party, a political organization founded by Cuomo.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton urged Democratic voters not to be complacent about the November midterm elections, saying Monday that working women and their families will lose out on a better future if Republicans gain control of both houses of Congress. The former secretary of state made the remarks during a sold-out women's luncheon in San Francisco that raised $1.4 million for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "It's truly regrettable that despite all the great work Nancy did and President Obama, given what was inherited when the president came into office that we are having to work so hard to elect and...

    Monica Lewinsky was "in love" with former President Clinton, the disgraced former intern revealed Monday. "Sixteen years ago, fresh out of college … I fell in love with my boss," the infamous former White House staffer told a business conference Monday during an eye-opening speech about her devastating experience in the public eye following the revelation of her affair with Clinton — her first public address in 13 years. "Overnight I went from being a completely private figure to a publicly humiliated one. I was patient zero," she said, according to reporters present at the Forbes magazine "30 Under 30"...

    Former President Bill Clinton returned to his old haunts of northwestern Arkansas on Tuesday and implored college students to support Democrats at risk of losing what's left of the political power they have held since Reconstruction. Next to the building where he once taught law, Clinton challenged students at the University of Arkansas to turn out for an election without a big national race. "The polls that show us in trouble uniformly believe that younger voters who voted for president will not show up in a midterm," Clinton said.

The news that Holder is going to resign should be bittersweet to anyone who cares about racial equality and the rule of law. The damage he has already done to the country leaves a turbulent wake that is ill-matched to the financial reward awaiting him at a shameless and large Washington, D.C., law firm. Our country is more polarized and more racially divided because of Eric Holder. He turned the power of the Justice Department into a racially motivated turnout machine for...

    Democratic state Sen. Roderick D. Wright, convicted earlier this year on felony perjury and voting fraud charges, was sentenced Friday to 90 days in county jail and barred for life from holding public office. After turning down Wright's request for a new trial, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Kathleen Kennedy also sentenced the senator to three years' probation and 1,500 hours of community service. He was ordered to surrender and begin serving his sentence Oct. 31. Some observers have speculated that Wright will serve little or no time behind bars, given his heretofore clean record, the nonviolent nature of...

    President Obama’s international woes give his former secretary of state good reason to seek political distance. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent foreign policy criticisms made that clear. Domestically, their interests diverge in a different way. A Republican takeover of the Senate this fall would hurt Mr. Obama for the final two years of his presidency, but it might help Mrs. Clinton if she runs to succeed him. Republican control of both the House and Senate would provide Mrs. Clinton a clearer target to run against in courting voters fatigued by Washington dysfunction. The longer an unpopular president and his more-unpopular partisan...

Sarah Palin's (R-AK) for her call to impeach President Barack Obama by saying, "She wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why." House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other senior Republicans have dismissed Palin's calls and instead have opted to file a lawsuit against Obama's executive overreach. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said earlier on the program, "We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment. He has not...

    Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate [1], her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits.No, I haven’t...

    As she launches her book tour to rebrand her image, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is becoming less liked by Americans. According to a Gallup survey, only 54 percent of Americans now view Clinton favorably, which is her lowest rating since 2008. She had a 59 percent favorability rating before her book tour. Clinton, a potential 2016 presidential contender, is less liked when she enters the political arena, and her book tour is being run like a campaign.

    When politicians have trouble spinning their own glories, that’s a problem. So it was bizarre that Hillary Rodham Clinton, asked at a forum in April about her legacy at the State Department, had trouble articulating it. That feeds into a narrative — awaiting her memoir on Tuesday — that she may have been glamorous as secretary of state but didn’t actually accomplish much. In fact, that’s dead wrong, for Clinton achieved a great deal and left a hefty legacy — just not the traditional kind.... No, her legacy is different. For starters, Clinton recognized that our future.... More fundamentally, Clinton...

That was the clear word out of Frederick Douglass High School in Baltimore yesterday as the attorney general and secretary of education announced new federal guidelines and mandates on school discipline. The goal? To disrupt the “school-to-prison pipeline” which Eric Holder and Arne Duncan say plagues our nation. Specifically, to eliminate what they call racial disparities in discipline.

    A federal judge has ruled in favor of the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice by requiring Louisiana to allow federal oversight of its school choice program, a decision that suggests the court’s acceptance of further involvement by the federal government in local school choice policies. A full 90% of the children who benefit from the voucher program are black. The remaining 10% came from 22 school districts under desegregation orders handed down five decades ago, which prompted the DOJ to state, “the voucher recipients were in the racial minority at the public school they attended before receiving the voucher.” As...

(Here’s the tax return itself, which we detailed last week.) The return, signed under penalty of perjury, specified that the grants would be used for social welfare purposes, “and not for political expenditures, consistent with the organization’s tax-exempt mission.” But that’s not what happened.

The traditional religious oath could be scrapped amid concerns that many giving evidence in criminal cases no longer take it seriously. Instead, all witnesses and defendants would promise to tell the truth without mentioning God, and would acknowledge they could be jailed if they are caught lying. It is claimed the new oath would be fairer for everyone and make it easier to understand the importance of what they are saying. But...

    The Justice Department announced Monday that it is suing the state of North Carolina for alleged racial discrimination over tough new voter ID rules. The suit claims that the North Carolina statute violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and would seek to have the state subject to federal pre-clearance before making "future voting-related changes." The suit was filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Nashville, Tenn. Attorney General Eric Holder said "by restricting access and ease of voter participation, this new law would shrink, rather than expand, access" to voting. The Justice Department will ask a federal judge...

    (CNSNews.com) - Former President Bill Clinton—who was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice and held in contempt of court by U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving “intentionally false” testimony—claimed to his former staffer George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday that Sen. Ted Cruz made multiple false statements during his filibuster on the Senate floor last week. “I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not,”...

    On a day when the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a report accusing its critics of bigotry, a Justice Department investigation reminds the public why CAIR does not merit the public's trust. Inspector General Michael Horowitz found a series of incidents in which FBI field offices knowingly engaged in outreach activity with CAIR despite a 2008 policy banning non-investigative cooperation with the Islamist group. Only (a summary) of the report has been released publicly. The rest is considered classified, but has been made available to Congress. The ban on interactions with CAIR, (first reported) by the Investigative Project on...

    What does it take for an employee to get fired in Eric Holder’s Justice Department Civil Rights Division? Certainly perjury doesn’t do it. Neither does using a government credit card to book airfare for romantic liaisons with a Miami girlfriend — that just gets you a nice buyout. Want to use civil rights laws to protect only black victims of discrimination? Ho hum. The culture of lawlessness is so pervasive at the Civil Rights Division that a former Voting Section chief felt comfortable telephoning current DOJ employees and suggesting they turn over confidential memos … because they were worth cash...

    “evidence did not support the original complaint”At a press conference earlier today, the Lake Mary, Florida, police indidated that no charges have yet to be filed against either George or Shellie Zimmerman based on available evidence. The iPad which may contain video is in such bad shape that it might be weeks or months before video is recovered. The iPad apparently was joint property. The outdoor surveillance video shows several people from the house, including Shellie, confronting George on the driveway, but not physical violence is shown. The police also just released their report. “As the on scene investigation continued,...

    Yesterday my Twitter timeline was all abuzz with excited liberals and gun grabbers chirping away with hyperbolic links and proclamations regarding George Zimmerman. The madman was threatening his wife with a gun, punching her father in the face and all manner of mayhem. George Zimmerman allegedly threatened family members with a gun! Zimmerman can’t keep his a** out of jail! Zimmerman arrested for threatening his wife with a gun! What a great story, eh? Great for anti-2nd Amendment folks who still feel a deep craving to punish George Zimmerman for something… anything … after their hearts were broken by a...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Former DNC chairman Howard Dean supports President Obama's call for a punitive military strike against Syria. “Thus far I fully support the president, including his going to Congress,” Dean said in an email to The Hill. The comments from the standard-bearer of the anti-war left during the 2004 campaign could help Obama gain more support among Democrats for votes next week in the House and Senate on his request. In the House in particular, Obama is likely to have to count on a strong Democratic vote. Dean's support for punishing Bashar Assad's regime for its alleged use of chemical weapons...

    A 23-year-old woman admitted Thursday that she lied to a grand jury investigating the long-running case of young men who left Minnesota to join a terrorist group in Somalia. Saynab Hussein pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Minnesota to one count of perjury. She admitted that in June 2009 she lied when she told a grand jury she did not know anyone who raised money for the travelers, when she actually helped raise money herself.

    The Zimmerman saga is far from over. Despite being acquitted of second degree murder charges, George Zimmerman faces federal prosecution, as the most racialist and politicized DOJ in history weighs the political implications. And his wife, Shellie, faces a trial for perjury scheduled to begin on August 21.Perjury is very difficult to prove, rarely filed, and much misunderstood. Florida statute 837.02(1) states: Except as provided in subsection (2), whoever makes a false statement, which he or she does not believe to be true, under oath in an official proceeding in regard to any material matter, commits a felony of...
