    PBS’s Judy Woodruff asked former president Bill Clinton Thursday whether he thought it was a “good thing” that norms have changed when it comes to sexual harassment. Woodruff’s example was former Minnesota senator Al Franken being forced to resign his post after accusations that, Woodruff said, were less serious than what happened in the Lewinsky scandal. "Well, in general, I think it's a good thing, yes," Clinton said about norms changing. He then proceeded to defend Franken and question the legitimacy of some of the accusations against him. "I will be honest,” he said, “the Franken case, for me, was...

    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...
  • Chelsea Clinton tweets she spent a year in Joe Arpaio’s tent jail — the reaction is priceless

    Chelsea Clinton really stepped in it on Saturday when she tweeted a Washington Post essay from someone who spent a year in Joe Arpaio’s infamous Maricopa County jail. Only problem was, Clinton tweeted the story headline without quotes, making it read as if she was saying that she spent a year in Arpaio’s jail. “The year I spent in Joe Arpaio’s tent jail was hell. He should never walk free,” the tweet said with a link to the Post essay. The essay details the horrors that Francisco Chairez faced while he was in Arpaio’s jail for a drunk driving conviction....
  • Remember that 'Republican Woman for Clinton': She's a lobbyist married to a Clinton operative

    Washinton Examiner ^ | 8/19/16 | Timothy P. Carney
    Sometimes our media can be so incurious. After Jennifer Pierotti Lim spoke at the Democratic convention last month, the New York Times interviewed her, describing her only as "the founder of the volunteer group Republican Women for Hillary." Cosmo and the Huffington Post, to their credit, mentioned Lim's employer: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. None of these publications, in their positive profiles of the Clinton backer, mentioned her occupation: Lobbyist. A lobbyist for the largest lobbying entity in the country gets on stage to praise a presidential candidate, and her job is basically omitted from descriptions of her. That seems...

    In a January 22 Al-Majd TV interview, Palestinian scholar Samir Said talked about what he called the "criminal and Satanic nature" of the Jews and said that they were "the enemies of Mankind," who had "killed 70 prophets in a single day." Said is a member of the Jerusalem Committee of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS). Following are excerpts: Interviewer: Let's talk about the well-known history of Jewish crimes, since the days of the Israelites, and their crimes against the most noble people of those times – the prophets and messengers, against whom they committed grave crimes, including...

    NEW YORK, July 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Until the eve of his presidential campaign, Jeb Bush was director of a philanthropy that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and financed its advocacy of "unrestricted access to abortion" around the world. The charity also approved money to global abortion providers while he sat on its board. In 2010, Jeb was named one of the founding directors of the Bloomberg Family Foundation, established as a tax-exempt foundation to advance the vision of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He resigned from the board at the end of 2014...

    A hunter stumbled upon a bizarre sight on a 75,000-acre ranch north of Las Vegas, N.M., on Aug. 27: the remains of more than 100 dead elk. Livestock deaths are not unusual, but so many animals dying off, and doing so in what seems to be under 24 hours, was puzzling to scientists. Related StoriesOfficials with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish investigated the mysterious elk deaths and ruled out several possible causes for the elk deaths, including poachers, anthrax, lightning strikes, epizootic hemorrhagic disease (an often-fatal virus known to affect deer and other ruminants), botulism, poisonous plants,...

    A 10-year-old US girl suffering from cerebral palsy is too afraid to leave her house because her neighbours continually mock her disability. Ohio girl Hope Holcomb has regularly been bullied by her nine-year-old neighbour, but recently the boy's father has also begun teasing the young girl with both being captured on film mocking the limp Hope suffers as a result of her illness. "It started last year we had trouble on the bus, she was miserable she didn't want to ride the bus, cried every morning," Hope's mother Tricia Knight told Fox 8 News. "He treats her like crap, and...

    The cover of this week’s GLOBE reveals that "Bill and Hillary – The Final Split." Globe has the shocking details of how Hillary is moving in with a woman. Over the past several years there have been rumours that the Clinton marriage was in name only and in fact they were essentially leading separate lives. In detail, GLOBE claims that Hillary, 64, who was recently in South America for the Sixth Summit of the Americas, made the most of the country’s nightlife at Café Havana. She was at the salsa hotspot, and Hilary was seen dancing with her hands in...

    Sources close to Polanski, 76, and Emmanuelle Seigner, his French wife of 20 years, say that a regional officer noticed Polanski's name on a database of wanted criminals. Realising the director was due to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Zurich Film Festival, he contacted the Swiss Federal Department of Police and Justice. The Swiss phoned their US counterparts, who have had an arrest warrant out for Polanski since 1978, and they eagerly requested he be held as soon as he flew into Switzerland from France. Mystery surrounds the compensation that Roman Polanski has paid to Samantha Geimer. Court...

    Man, Ed Rendell is so screwed -- literally. I don't normally listen to Opie & Anthony looking for breaking news, but astonishingly that's what I just got. A few minutes ago, the cast of the show on Sirius XM radio were interviewing Kristin Davis -- not the one from Sex and the City, the former Manhattan Madam who spent four months in Rikers in connection with the Eliot Spitzer hooker scandal from last year. There's been quite a bit of speculation that her operation at one time serviced another high-profile governor, besides Spitzer, and up until now she's been largely...
