    A judge who suggested that a woman seeking a restraining order could close your legs to prevent a sexual assault was removed from the bench Tuesday by the New Jersey Supreme Court and permanently barred from presiding over a courtroom. The unanimous decision cited repeated and serious acts of misconduct by state Superior Court Judge John Russo Jr. Chief Justice Stuart Rabner wrote that it would be inconceivable for Russo to preside over domestic violence or sexual assault matters after those comments. [] The woman appeared before Russo in 2016 seeking a restraining order against a man she said sexually...

    A conservative group is urging more Joe Biden victims to come forward in a digital ad campaign featuring former Biden Senate staffer and sexual assault accuser Tara Reade. The 60-second ad produced by Club for Growth Action features Reade accusing Biden of assaulting her in 1993 and directs viewers to the website to, Fill out the form below about your experience with Joe Biden. The pro-free market group generally supports Republican candidates and worked with the Trump administration to reduce business regulations. The group told The Post it is initially spending $2,000 with a focus on promoting the ad...

    * Official figures show offending in women's prisons by criminals born male * Male-born trans prisoners were first allowed to transfer to women's jails in 2016 * Attacks at HMP Low Newton, Foston Hall, Peterborough, Bronzefield, New Hall Transgender prisoners have carried out seven sex attacks on women in jail, it can be revealed today.

Yet despite the risks, prison governors are still allowing trans inmates to move into the...
  • Joe Biden would be found guilty of rape under the Title IX standard he supports

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 11, 2020
    Despite evidence supporting charges that he raped a subordinate in 1993, Joe Biden deserves the benefit of the doubt. Or he would deserve it, were he not such a hypocrite as to deny that benefit to others. In 2011, the Obama administration, in which Biden was a boastfully proud member, released a Dear Colleague letter instructing colleges and universities on how to handle sexual assault allegations under Title IX. In practice, this "guidance" threatened to withdraw federal funds from colleges that failed to convict and expel all students accused of sexual assault. Biden enthusiastically supported the measure. Anyone can make...

    YouTube ^ | 5/8/20 | Megyn Kelly on YouTube
    I had not seen the FULL interview posted anywhere (only bits & pieces), so here it is, from YouTube. The interview has a lot of new details of harassment in Biden's office and discusses other people who knew (uses first names only). I find Ms. Reade totally believable. She makes eye contact and addresses every question. Looks like the reason we did not hear more from her earlier is because she had a child, had a bad marriage with domestic violence she ended with a restraining order and a change of identity, then went to law school and became a...

    Writing in the New York Times, Linda Hirshman says she believes Tara Reade but shell vote for Joe Biden anyway because of Donald Trump. Yesterday in a New York Times column Linda Hirshman said she believes Tara Reade, but shes going to vote for Joe Biden anyway because anything is better than Donald Trump. That is to say, she believes Biden sexually assaulted Reade in a locker room when Reade worked on his Senate staff years ago. Its nonsense at this point to try to discount or denigrate every new corroborating witness who comes forward to bolster Reades claim, Hirshman...

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whose name has been mentioned as a possible running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, spoke early Friday about the sexual assault claims against the former vice president. Women should be able to tell their stories, Whitmer said, apparently supporting the right of former Biden Senate staffer Tara Reade to go public with her claim of having been sexually assaulted by Biden in 1993 a claim Biden denies. Whitmer shared her remarks during an appearance on ABCs Nightline just hours before Biden addressed the claims on MSNBCs Morning Joe." **SNIP** Whitmers most...

    Ive known Joe Biden a number of years. He has always been straight forward and true to his word, so I accept his word. Cuomo pointed out that just in general, its a political time, people make accusations. They dont need any basis for it. Anybody can say anything, and then if youre in elected office you can defend it to the best you can, the governor said. But the do you beat your wife? When did you stop beating your wife? You know those accusations, theyre just ugly, they can have no basis to them but you know people...

"If you think only the GOP is responsible for this topsy turvy world, look no further than #FireChrisHayes trending because @chrislhayes had the journalistic integrity to cover an important #MeToo story against a Democrat," Daou tweeted Thursday. "This level of rape apology from Dems is APPALLING." Daou's comments came after #FireChrisHayes trended on Twitter in response to his coverage of Reade's allegations.

    A massage therapist claims former Vice President Al Gore made unwanted sexual advances at her during an appointment in his hotel suite in Portland, Oregon, back in 2006, when Gore was in town to deliver a speech on climate change. After the allegations were made public in a National Enquirer story on Wednesday, police officials in Portland offered a statement that no charges were filed in the case due to a lack of evidence. . According to District Attorney Michael Schrunk, an attorney for the alleged victim, who has only been identified as a 54-year-old woman, contacted police after the...

    MSNBC host Chris Hayes sparked backlash from the left when he became the first primetime host on the network to cover a former aide's sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, with the hashtag #FireChrisHayes trending on Twitter. The "All-In" host welcomed New York magazine's Rebecca Traister to his program Wednesday night after she penned an essay, titled "The Biden Trap," that critical of the former vice president for not addressing Tara Reade's allegations in any interviews, thereby leaving Democratic women supporting his candidacy to answer questions about the allegations for him.

    In a new interview with U.K. publication The Sunday Times, Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette made some revelatory comments concerning the #MeToo movement in the music industry as she reflected on her decades-long career. With her iconic breakthrough record Jagged Little Pill celebrating its 25th anniversary in June, Morissette who began her career as a teen pop star said that the female rage she famously exhibited in the album is needed now more than ever. Female rage gets such a bad rap, but its part of being human, Morissette said. Not punching someone in the face, but anger channelled...

    Former Georgia state Rep. Stacey Abrams has strongly defended former Vice President Joe Biden in response to questions about sexual assault allegations against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. I believe women deserve to be heard, and I believe that has happened here, Abrams told HuffPost in an article published Tuesday. The allegations have been heard and looked into, and for too many women, often, that is not the case. The New York Times conducted a thorough investigation, and nothing in the Times review or any other later reports suggests anything other than what I already know about Joe Biden: That...

    Actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano, who was criticized for her continued support of presumed 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden amid sexual assault allegations levied by Tara Reade, may have changed her tune in a Monday night tweet. Im aware of the new developments in Tara Reades accusation against Joe Biden. I want Tara, like every other survivor, to have the space to be heard and seen without being used as fodder, Milano tweeted. I hear and see you, Tara. The new developments are presumably Reades former neighbor, and a self-described supporter of Biden, telling Business Insider that she was told about the...

    In March, when a former aide to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden accused the candidate of sexually assaulting her in 1993, two people came forward to say that the woman, Tara Reade, had told them of the incident shortly after it allegedly occurred her brother, Collin Moulton, and a friend who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. Now two more sources have come forward to corroborate certain details about Reade's claims. One of them a former neighbor of Reade's has told Insider for the first time, on the record, that Reade disclosed details about the...
