    What's fascinating about the coverage of the persuasive accusations against Bill Cosby, now 18 and rising, is that race doesn't dominate. There's an outcry at the abuse of women, and he's shredded the healthy black father family man image he carefully cultivated on his sitcom, but you don't read or hear notice taken of the fact that the women who say he drugged and raped them were usually white. Nor is the culture called racist for having turned Bill Cosby into an angry black man who spent his aggression against those vulnerable white women. There's anger at a celebrity's abuse...

    "...while decades old rape accusations against a black TV star named Bill are given front page headlines,more credible rape allegations against a Southern white President of the United States named Bill are ignored and the victims are savaged in the press.Liberal politics,not people, matter to our evil media.That’s precisely why they rush to their cameras,microphones and keyboards when news breaks about a pedophile Catholic priest having his way with altar boys.Not because they care about the altar boys,but because they want to discredit the Catholic Church.If you doubt that fact,ask yourself why you haven’t heard much from the Mainstream Media...

A 37-year-old woman visiting from Canada told Fort Lauderdale police on October 9th, at 12:30 a.m., she and a friend were picked up by a cab in the area of the 2400 block of E Sunrise Blvd. Investigators said when the women were in the cab they stopped at an ATM to withdraw money because driver Max Raphael, 29, refused to accept a credit card.

    Here is some legitimate overreach when it comes to prosecuting sexual abuse:New Jersey state Assemblyman Troy Singleton has drafted a "rape by fraud" bill that would make it illegal to lie your way into someone's pants. From NJ.com:Earlier this month,state Assemblyman Troy Singleton(D-Burlington) introduced the bill(A3908),which would create the crime of “sexual assault by fraud,” which it defines as “an act of sexual penetration to which a person has given consent because the actor has misrepresented the purpose of the act or has represented he is someone he is not.”The bill was inspired by the case of Mischele Lewis, who...

    The American right was at once mocked and feared by liberals for the scrutiny they devoted to the sex lives of average Americans. This impulse among conservatives culminated in George W. BushÂ’s administrationÂ’s unsuccessful attempt to enshrine heterosexual marriage into the U.S. Constitution. The critiques of social conservatism in the last decade as prudish and meddling were well-founded, but that seems like a generation ago. As American conservatism continues to embrace a more libertarian view on those policies which relate to the policing of consensual relationships, the left has become consumed with supervising sexual activity and defining more and...

    Imagine this: A man woos a woman to bed with tales of his riches, fast cars and a vacation home in Monaco. But he actually lives in his mother’s basement. Or this: A seemingly wealthy widow convinces a younger man to sleep with her on the notion that they may marry and he’ll inherit her money. In reality, she’s broke. In both cases, someone lied about his or her status in order to have sex with someone else. Under a bill recently proposed by a south Jersey lawmaker, such actions would not only be considered dishonest. They could prompt charges...

Frank Scotti told the New York Daily News that he helped Cosby funnel thousands of dollars to the women and would stand guard outside the door during The Cosby Show’s run from 1984-92. He claimed that Cosby would house those of whom he was particularly fond in apartments and give them up to $2,000 per month. Most aspired to a career in the entertainment industry and...

    Bayes’ Rule (a simple algebraic transformation of Bayes’ Theorem that converts probabilities into odds) supplies the appropriate guidance with respect to how recently announced evidence against Bill Cosby should update our belief with respect to his guilt or innocence. The Rule says that, broadly speaking, we should update our beliefs via a likelihood ratio that is formed by dividing the probability that X number of women (substitute for X however many women have testified against Cosby) would lie if Cosby is guilty by the probability that X number of women would lie if Cosby is innocent. The language “broadly speaking”...

As each new woman surfaces and recounts her alleged sexual assault by him, I am left with more questions than answers.

    If Aesop were here he might rewrite his famous fable, replacing the boy who cried “wolf!” with the girl who cried “rape!” The cry of “rape” is used so carelessly that it’s often impossible to get to the truth of an accusation. When rape was a capital offense it was a rare and vicious crime which required a court of law to apply justice. It was underreported, since the rapist usually took advantage of those who felt too vulnerable even to say anything about it. Contemporary accusations of rape are frequent, often made by women at prestigious colleges whose accusations...

On Tuesday night, Lemon interviewed Joan Tarshis, a woman who recently went public with her accusation that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1969. During their exchange, Lemon questioned Tarshis on why she didn't bite Cosby and use her teeth "as a weapon" when he forced her to perform oral sex.

    Unless he had just eaten a bad cup of Jell-O pudding, it would appear that actor and comedian Bill Cosby seems to really, really hate Republicans. The veteran entertainer made that very clear Monday morning when he claimed that Republicans not applauding President Obama’s State of the Union address in unison with Democrats was “as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation.” He also wondered aloud about whether or not Republicans today are upset that slavery is no longer legal. Cosby made these remarks on the CNN morning show “Starting Point” after soon-to-be-former host Soledad O’Brien referenced...

    He’s been a cultural icon for decades, but a number of women have spent nearly that long accusing Bill Cosby of being something entirely more sinister. Although allegations against Cosby of sexual assault have been public for decades, a confluence of accusers coming forward has pushed the story to the top of the news — and into boardrooms as well. Netflix announced that it would postpone the launch of a comedy special involving Cosby, presumably in response to the allegations, although Netflix refused to elaborate: Netflix won’t air a new Bill Cosby special after three women slammed the comedian...

    NOTE: THE LINK HAS THE FEB 24, 1999 NBC DATELINE VIDEO. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ To set the stage for why the country needs Hillary Clinton to be the next president, Democrats are trying to force-feed Americans a “war on women” pablum, when such a war–as they present it–does not exist. For the real “war on women,” however, Democrats might turn to Hillary Clinton herself and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. Juanita Broaddrick never wanted to meet the press. In February of 1999, Dorothy Rabinowitz, a member of The Wall Street Journal‘s editorial board, wrote that when the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal broke the...

    Streaming service Netflix has postponed a Bill Cosby comedy special in the wake of allegations of sexual assault that have resurfaced in recent weeks. Bill Cosby 77 was to have been streamed from 27 November. It is not clear when or if the special will now be shown. Netflix's announcement came shortly after Tuesday's airing of an interview with a model and TV host who claimed Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982. Cosby's lawyer previously said the comedian would be making no comment. John P Schmidt said the allegations were a "decade-old [and] discredited" and that he did not intend...

Following her stay in rehab, Dickinson says Cosby reached out to her during a trip to Bali and had her travel...

At a briefing for reporters Monday morning, Livingston called it “a disgusting crime,” pleaded for the public’s help in providing information and stressed that any tip could help. He asked people to...
