“One Look Admits So Much Guilt”: Bill Clinton’s Reaction As Trump Names Ex-Pres Rape Victims

The debate became an all out forum for both candidates to attack each other. Though the appearance of civility and the general drama of the election means that much is being held back, the Clinton’s are having much of their sordid and disreputable past thrown back in their face publicly. Such is the price for seeking power. But perhaps no one in American political history – or anyone since Roman times – has been so widely accused of misbehavior, and yet remained in the political spotlight as Bill Clinton, and his enabler wife. Trump brought rape victims and Bill Clinton accusers Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones to the debate, alongside Kathy Shelton – whom Hillary Clinton laughed about being raped at 12-years old as a defense attorney, as she deflected prosecution for her client, who she clearly believed was a rapist. Just before the debate, Donald Trump […] Read More

Why Is Accused Sexual Predator Bill Clinton Getting a Pass?

(Same girl) When dozens of women came forward to accuse Bill Cosby of rape, most Americans believed them, so why is Bill Clinton getting a free pass when a similar number of women are accusing Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct? As you will see below, new allegations continue to come out, and it has become exceedingly clear that Clinton is still chasing women that he is not married to even though his wife is in the middle of a presidential campaign.  Of course Hillary Clinton knows exactly what is going on, and she has been serving as his enabler by doing all that she can to cover up Bill’s escapades whenever one of these “bimbo eruptions” happens.  Ultimately, Bill and Hillary Clinton have together victimized countless numbers of women, and yet public opinion polls continue to show that most women voters plan to vote for Hillary Clinton in November.  […] Read More

The Horrifying Consequences of Our National Rape Kit Backlog

Kali Holloway is a senior writer and the associate editor of media and culture at AlterNet. Thousands of sexual assaults are unsolved thanks to policies that leave kits untested, misplaced or destroyed. In 2008, two Berkeley, California, teen girls, ages 15 and 19, were brutally raped and robbed at gunpoint. In the hours following the crime they went to a local medical center, where they informed staff of what happened so that evidence could be collected for rape kits. For six years, those rape kits remained untested in an Alameda County evidence room, and correspondingly, the assailant in the case remained on the street. When the kits were finally processed in 2014, the DNA they contained matched Keith Kenard Asberry Jr., a repeat offender who later sexually assaulted another woman. Asberry now sits in prison, awaiting trail on multiple charges of kidnapping, sexual assault and robbery. The case is […] Read More

Arkansas Republican Who Gave Girls to Rapist ‘Regularly’ Performed Exorcisms on Unruly Preschoolers

A former teacher of Justin Harris’ school spoke about bizarre rituals performed on students. The Arkansas Republican who gave his adopted daughters to a man who raped one of them was apparently in the habit of attempting to cast “demons” out of the children in his federally-funded pre-kindergarten. According to KNWA news, a former employee of Justin Harris’ Growing God’s Kingdom — who was also a mother of a student in the school — came forward Wednesday to discuss the bizarre pseudo-religious rituals Harris and his wife Marsha would perform on students as a routine part of daily life at the school. The former teacher — who asked to be identified as “Amber” — said that the Harrises would perform an exorcism ritual when children were acting up. “If they got in too much trouble they would pray on the kids, do a circle around them, put their hands […] Read More

Thousands of Rapists Are Not Behind Bars Because Cops Focus on Marijuana Users

Every dollar and police hour spent on nonviolent drug offenders takes away from real crime. A piece in the Washington Post highlights the growing backlog of untested rape test kits that are sitting in police storage units while rapists run free and victims suffer.  Missing from the story, however, is one of the biggest contributors to this backlog, the enormous amount of police and tax resources spent targeting drug crimes, particularly marijuana possession. The backlog is a disgrace. The total number of rape test kits that have never been sent to laboratories for testing exceeds 100,000. In some cases, the kits have been sitting in storage for decades. From the Washington Post: “In 2009, authorities found more than 11,000 unprocessed kits at the Detroit crime lab after it was closed for improperly handling weapons evidence. After testing the first 2,000 kits, authorities identified 127 serial rapists and made 473 matches overall to known convicts […] Read More

2014: The One Story You Ever Need to Read to Demand and End to All Wars

Like a lot of soldiers, Pvt. Steven Dale Green‘s heinous acts in Iraq led him to PTSD and suicide. U.S. Army Pfc. Steven Dale Green was found hanging in his cell at the federal maximum security prison in Tucson last week. The name may mean nothing to you, but his crimes probably ring a bell:  He’s the guy who raped and killed a 14-year-old Iraqi girl in 2006 after shooting and killing her parents and younger sister. Then he and some other soldiers from a nearby U.S. Army checkpoint set the girl’s corpse on fire. U.S. Army Pfc.
