    According to NBC News, a judge has rejected Rolling Stones request to throw out a defamation case brought by the accused students in the now-debunked University of Virginia rape case. In a statement made on Thursday, a circuit court judge in Charlottesville, Virginia, held that Rolling Stone magazines article on an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia could reasonably be considered defamatory. This followed a request by the magazines attorney for the court to dismiss the case.

    Republican Donald Trump should win the presidency by a slim margin according to a model that has accurately predicted the popular vote since 1988. Using several standards to make his prediction, Alan Abramowitzs Time for Change model done for the University of Virginias Center for Politics Crystal Ball shows Trump winning 51.4 percent to 48.6 percent for Hillary Clinton. He added that the model shows a 66 percent chance of a Trump victory. Based on a predicted vote share of 48.6 percent for the incumbent party, these results indicate that Trump should be a clear but not overwhelming favorite to...

    In light of the Rolling Stone-University of Virginia libel lawsuit and other rape hoaxes across the U.S., The Women Against VAWA [Violence Against Women Act] Excess (known as WAVE) issued a brief directed towards Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and her rhetoric on sexual assaults. In their brief, WAVE noted, "Gillibrand has no regard for the presumption of innocence and has repeatedly misrepresented the facts surround the issue." Additionally, Wave pointed out how the criminal justice system's purpose is to "reach a reliable determination of innocence and guilt," while the Left's rhetoric is to mostly ignore the due process rights...

    The University of Virginia (right), the location of the infamously fabricated gang-rape story printed in Rolling Stone last year, has found itself in the spotlight again thanks to another allegation of sexual assault - but this time the events surrounding the alleged rape are all too real. Sophomore volleyball player Haley Lind (left) believes she was raped at a UVA house party on August 22, 2015. The freshman athlete she was with swears it was all consensual. Both have been left distraught. And the UVA says there's just not enough evidence to do anything about it, The Washington Post reported.

Rolling Stone's Tim Dickinson does not consider any of those bloodthirsty outfits “the greatest threat to our homeland security today.” That description, Dickinson argues, best fits the National Rifle Association. “The NRA's unhinged gun advocacy,” he wrote in a Wednesday article, “has created a soft underbelly to our homeland security that radicals are exploiting to inflict mass murder.” Dickinson declared, “Make no mistake: The NRA paved the way for the Orlando attack,” given that -- “ The NRA's lobbyists and political...

The comic said that at one point in his career, the agency would provide five or six young women each week, according to depositions he gave in 2005 and 2006 for a lawsuit. Among other revelations made by Cosby under questioning by lawyers for Andrea Constand, who claims he sexually assaulted her in 2004, was the description of a 1976 encounter with a 19-year-old model named Therese Picking.

An independent review by the Columbia School of Journalism ultimately determined that in producing the article, Rolling Stone violated "basic, even routine journalistic practice" by failing to fact-check or corroborate key portions of the woman's story before the piece was published.

And the fraternity may be winning. Last August, an African-American woman lodged a complaint against Phi Delta Theta, alleging that members of the fraternity shouted racial slurs at her from the windows of their campus house. The fraternity denied that any such...

    In the 14 months since her story shocked the world, Jackie has been at the heart of a national debate about sexual assaults on college campuses, has become embroiled in a media scandal, and is the central figure in a series of defamation lawsuits. Yet there’s one important fact missing about Jackie, the young woman who concocted a harrowing story about a gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity: her full name. News organizations have declined to reveal Jackie’s full identity since her now-discredited story appeared in Rolling Stone magazine in November 2014. Her single-name identity — just Jackie...
  • ‘Catfishing’ over love interest might have spurred U-Va. gang-rape debacle

    Ryan Duffin was a freshman at the University of Virginia when he met a student named Jackie. Both teenagers were new to campus in September 2012, and the pair quickly became friends through a shared appreciation of alternative rock bands such as Coheed and Cambria and Silversun Pickups. Early on, Duffin sensed that Jackie was interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with him. Duffin valued her friendship but politely rebuffed Jackie’s advances for more. Just days after he met her, Duffin said, he was goaded into a text message conversation with a U-Va. junior named “Haven Monahan,” whom Jackie said...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Friday called Bill Clinton's sexual scandals "totally disgraceful and unacceptable" but said he would not use the former president's infidelities against Hillary Clinton. Sanders' comments came after an Iowa town hall attendee raised Bill Clinton's affair in the White House and questioned if Hillary Clinton was qualified to be president, the Washington Post reported. "My question to you is, isn't one of the qualifications to be president to have some kind of moral authority?," the attendee asked Sanders. "I mean, how can you tell a Secret Service agent that he has to be fired for...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says attacks against former President Bill Clinton's sexual history are not fair game for politicians looking to defeat his wife and Democratic primary front-runner Hillary Clinton. "I think, you know, we have enormous problems facing this country, and I think we got more things to worry about than Bill Clinton's sexual life," Sanders said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump has recently made the sexual allegations against Clinton an issue in the White House race. Sanders said Trump would be better off focusing on serious issues facing the nation, like climate change.

    Sean Hannity ^ | January 7, 2016
    Since returning to the campaign trail as an advocate for Hillary, Bill Clinton has been harried by renewed interest in his past sexual misconduct as well as Hillary's alleged role in intimidating his victims into silence. Roger Stone, author of the New York Times bestselling "The Clinton's War On Women", claims that he has personal knowledge of previously unknown victims who are preparing to come forward with accusations against the former president. "I identified 24 women who've been assaulted by Bill Clinton," Stone said on The Sean Hannity Show. "Now some of these women are still terrified. Some of them...

    The conservative nonprofit group Citizens United is comparing Bill Clinton's lurid history with women to that of accused serial rapist Bill Cosby. SNIP "We saw what Hillary Clinton is doing, trying to make this election about women and women's issues," Citizens United president David Bossie told Breitbart News.

    Donald Trump says it would be "very interesting" to ask Bill Clinton how he was different from Bill Cosby. Asked on the Howie Carr Show on Monday if there is a difference between Clinton and Cosby, Trump said, "Well, the Cosby thing is a weird deal and he's got himself some big problems, and you almost have to ask Bill Clinton that question. It would be a very interesting question to some day ask him. Certainly he has a lot of strong charges against him and it's pretty bad stuff. And it only got brought up because she said I...

    Having dodged this bullet before and because no Democrat raised this issue when she ran in 2000 Hillary must have figured the MSM would cut off discussion of Bill's record of sexual assault and rape ... and Hillary's role in silencing his victims. It is obvious the Clinton-enabling MSM wants to substitute "marital infidelity" and "consensual blow jobs" for serial rape, serial sexual assault and Hillary's criminal terror campaigns to silence Bills victims . This isn’t about infidelity or consensual sex. It's not about adultery or "pain in the Clinton marriage." It's not about Bill"s girlfriends, mistresses or one-night stands....
