    British authorities knew that a network of predominantly South Asian men was grooming vulnerable children in Manchester, but failed to act to stop dozens of girls from being abused -- according to a damning new report released this week that details yet another Asian grooming scandal in the U.K.... .... “ There was clear evidence that professionals at the time were aware these young people were being sexually exploited, and that this was generally perpetrated by a group of older Asian men,” the report says. “There was significant information known at the time about their names, their locations and telephone...

    For months, parents and citizens in Chula Vista, CA, a suburb of San Diego, have insisted that their City Council take action to stop any more “Drag Queen Story Hour” events from targeting children in the public library. On September 10, 2019, the Chula Vista library held a particularly hideous and perverted “Drag Queen Story Hour” event.

    Four years ago, I wrote about my decision to live as a woman in The New York Times, writing that I had wanted to live “authentically as the woman that I have always been,” and had “effectively traded my white male privilege to become one of America’s most hated minorities.” Three years ago, I decided that I was neither male nor female, but nonbinary—and made headlines after an Oregon judge agreed to let me identify as a third sex, not male or female. Now, I want to live again as the man that I am. I’m one of the lucky...
  • Lawsuit: Famed Jesuit Priest With Connections to Mother Teresa Abused Boy 'More than 1,000 Times'

    KTLA ^ | Monday, December 30, 2019 | The Associated Press
    One day in May of 1970, an 11-year-old boy and his disabled sister were sitting on the curb outside a Chicago tavern, waiting for their mother to come out. When a priest with crinkly eyes and a ready smile happened by and offered the family a ride home, they could not have been happier. The boy, Robert J. Goldberg, now 61, would pay dearly for the favor, enduring what he describes as years of psychological control and sexual abuse he suffered while working as a child valet for the late Rev. Donald J. McGuire. He remained in the Jesuit's thrall...

    Fourteen years ago November, God answered my wife's prayer in an unusual manner. I had been laid off from my job after 19 years. We had been hit by Hurricane Wilma. Our power was still out after two weeks. My wife and I had decided to sell the house and move to New Mexico. We had lived our whole lives in South Florida and moving over 2000 miles away from friends and family was going to be difficult. As was her custom, when faced with a big decision, my wife turned to prayer. She asked God for clarity. God answered...

"I think Christopher Wray's problem is he doesn't seem like he is that upset about what happened," Hemingway said .. I think people are looking for someone who is extremely serious about this, who understands the significance, who takes it like the serious thing it is." ...

    A pastor at Jubilee Baptist Church in Chapel Hill, a “quasi-socialist” congregation featured in Buzzfeed last week, is on paid leave following an allegation of online sexual misconduct. The Buzzfeed article described the church as an anti-racist, queer-inclusive place where Karl Marx is read during Bible study and contributions are used to pay off people’s debts in the community. Shortly after the article was published, the church became aware via Twitter that co-pastor John Thornton Jr. “had engaged in abusive sexual behavior via online and text correspondence” with a person not affiliated with the church, according to a statement given...

    New York clergy sex abuse victims are suing the pope — claiming in a landmark lawsuit filed Tuesday that he and the Vatican were aware that a significant number of priests were molesting children and kept it secret. The class-action lawsuit, brought in Manhattan federal court by seven survivors who previously settled with the Catholic Dioceses in New York for “pennies on the dollar,” alleges sole defendant “the Holy See” acted negligently by instructing its bishops around the world to cover up cases of sexual abuse.

    They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. I think many readers of this article will respond with outrage, and many will see it says things they already knew to be true—and I think these two groups will largely overlap. The most powerful obstacle to confronting a destructive addiction is denial, and collectively we are in denial about pornography. Since it seems somehow relevant, let me state at the outset that I am French. Every fiber of my Latin, Catholic body recoils at puritanism of any sort, especially the bizarre, Anglo-Puritan kind so prevalent in America. I...

    Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University and the sole Republican witness at Wednesday's impeachment hearing, cautioned against impeaching President Trump for obstruction and said that Democrats would be abusing their power by not allowing the courts to rule on subpoenas. "Recently there are some rulings against President Trump, including a ruling involving Don McGahn. ... That's an example of what can happen if you actually subpoena witnesses and go to court. Then you have an obstruction case because a court issues an order. And unless they stay that order by a higher court, you have obstruction. But...

    UCF has suspended sorority Pi Beta Phi after receiving an anonymous complaint of hazing, including members forcing others to use drugs and drink alcohol until they blacked out. An anonymous person alerted the University of Central Florida on Nov. 16 about a post on the website greekrank.com that described a friend’s experience in Pi Beta Phi. UCF sent the sorority a letter Nov. 21 demanding it cease all activities, including business meetings, fundraisers, socials, mixers, intramural competitions and recruitment events while the university investigates the allegations. A hearing is scheduled for Dec. 5. The accusations are “of utmost concern” to...

    Supergirl star Melissa Benoist revealed she is a victim of domestic violence in a new video. “So I don’t normally do things like this but I’ve written something that I want to share,” the 31-year-old actress said in a 14-minute video posted to Instagram Wednesday. Taking a deep breath Benoist said, "I am a survivor of domestic violence, or IPV, intimate partner violence, which is something I never in my life expected I would say...” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “intimate partner violence” (also known as domestic violence) involves physical and sexual violence, stalking or...

    To hear college students and corporate consumer-product commercials tell it, gender fluidity is so normal, popular even, that they’re simply communicating these ideas as a way to reflect the new progressivism in America. Only that’s not exactly the case. Their ideas aren’t at all in sync with the rest of the country. Still, that doesn’t stop college students from talking about the “infinite” number of genders, or corporations from selling Sprite with a commercial about transgenderism and breast-binding to boot, minus any mention of the soft drink itself. A June 2019 Gallup poll reported Americans greatly overestimate the size of...

    Jeffrey Epstein, the high-profile sex-trafficking suspect who died in a Manhattan jail, asked for nude photos from one of his victims a month before he was arrested, according to a lawsuit filed this week. The claim against the disgraced financier's $577 million estate says Juliette Bryant initially met Epstein in 2002, when she was a 20-year-old aspiring model living in South Africa. She says she went to a restaurant with Epstein, after being introduced by a model turned journalist, and then attended a speech in Cape Town he gave the following day, according to the suit. Epstein asked Bryant to...

    The usurping group of FBI and DOJ officials we have called “the small group” have an established set of media operatives and outlets aligned to assist their narrative.  Tonight Devlin Barrett (Lisa Page and Peter Strzok’s favorite narrative engineer) publishes a report in the Washington Post highlighting their concerns. According to the WaPo Inspector General Michael Horowitz is not allowing the ‘small group’ to provide written rebuttals to the IG report on FISA abuse during their principal reviews.  The outline by Devlin on behalf of the group also confirms our timeline. (Via Washington Post) The Justice Department Inspector General’s office...

    The Rev. Hugh Lang, a priest for 63 years, was convicted Friday of indecent assault and unlawful contact with an 11-year-old boy while he was pastor at St. Therese of Lisieux parish in Munhall. Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Mark V. Tranquilli announced the verdict, ending a three-day bench trial that played out before a courtroom filled with nearly 30 of the priest's supporters. The 88-year-old priest took the stand Friday morning and vigorously denied the charges. But the judge said testimony convinced him that the incidents described by the 30-year-old accuser were true. The man, who lives in Southeast...

Sheriff Gregory Tony suspended him without pay until internal disciplinary procedures are complete. School security video shows Miller standing and texting inside an office at Cross Creek School when the 15-year-old walks behind him and uses her left foot...
