The New York Times Owes
its Readers an Apology

New Republic, by John B. Judis

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/9/2014 5:52:12 AM

I have tried to steer clear of the controversy created by the publication by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof of an open letter by Dylan Farrow alleging that Woody Allen molested her when she was seven years old. I have read some of the older news stories and Allen’s response today in The New York Times, but I haven’t studied the matter closely. Dylan Farrow’s account of molestation was vividly disturbing, and there are obviously cases where these kind of allegations have proven true. But there are also instances where childhood memories have proven fallible. (I had my own

FTA: – he should have at least included a coherent account of what the other side of the argument was.

I not aware of the left media presenting coherently both side of an article very often.

The self-indulgence of "stars" (and their children and relatives) never ceases to amaze me. I don´t care what the problems are. Child-molestation is a particularly heinous act this story is how old, with no new evidence?

Enough.

Its a shame that Woody and Mia are no longer together. It appears they were made for each other.

He admits he "steered clear of the controversy", "read some of the older stories and Allen´s response today in The New York Times, but I haven´t studied the matter closely,..."

That is when he should have shut down his article on this.

Another man going for "fair and balanced" at the expense of a child, who could not testify in court to what had been done to her because she was believed (at 7 years!) to be too fragile.

Judis should go and read the judge´s opinion, word for word, all 33 scathing pages. He might rethink what is "fair". And whether Dylan´s childhood memories have proven "fallible".

A physician found her to have sufficient physical evidence of abuse that he reported it to law enforcement, as he was required by law to do.

Judis believes that because no new evidence (not related to the Farrows) has emerged, this should be a closed matter. How he gets around the fact that Dylan Farrow - the victim - is the one who has brought this forward again. She did not get her first shot at justice because of her age and fragility - and probably Allen´s celebrity. Does that mean she can never have justice of any kind?

Dylan wrote her letter because she was sickened by Allen´s receipt of some sort of lifetime award at a recent awards show, along with gushing accolades from the likes of Diane Keaton and Cate Blanchett.

Her letter lead us to the facts of this case which had been buried in court and media archives. They are here, including a link to the scathing decision of the judge who denied Woody Allen custody and made it clear that Woody should not be with Dylan. Read it.

There should be no statute of limitations when it comes to child abuse. Having been unable to testify in court when she was a little girl, she took her case to the court of public opinion. A brave act.

From the article linked at #7:

9. The state attorney, Maco, said publicly he did have probable cause to press charges against Allen but declined, due to the fragility of the “child victim.” Maco told me that he refused to put Dylan through an exhausting trial, and without her on the stand, he could not prosecute Allen.

Is Judis a Clinton fan? The award given Allen made it news again. As Kristof noted about the story When we bestow an honor for a lifetime´s achievement shouldn´t that life have been honorable to begin with?

It´s a very important question for the leftoes in the press who seem to think Hillary is entitled to the Presidency as a form of lifetime achievement award.

There are also cases of children being manipulated into saying whatever the parent wants them to say as a revenge against the other person. I know, I´ve been there, have the bloody T-shirt because it happened to me.

But most people are so horrified at the thought of it that they cannot possibly render a fair judgement. This thread and others Ldot comment threads prove that beyond doubt. However, and thank God there are people who can sit on a Court Jury and see the lies and manipulations from the players first hand and not from the news stories to sell papers and make monsters out of innocent people.

I keep trying to follow this story, have been for a couple of weeks, but I´m not having much success. The conclusion I keep coming to is that no one is ever going to know the entire story or the entire truth. One truth --undeniable, is that Allen is a platinum-plated creep and Mia Farrow is crazier than an out-house mouse.

The kids didn´t stand a chance.

The problem with these cases is there is a portion of society that want anyone accused to be horribly punished regardless of the evidence. The 1990´s were full of such cases. Many innocent people went to jail.
All with little regard to the well known fact that this kind of abuse is the most falsely reported crime. And it seems this case dates back to that horrible era.

In the 1990´s I saw a statistic for my state that 99% of 200+ thousand charges per year of child abuse were dropped because the wife admitted she was just trying to get back at her husband or because it was so obvious to the sheriff that she was lying that they knew not to proceed.

After looking at the statistics over the years preceding that era it was clear that the greater problem was the epidemic of false reporting of child abuse.
Child abuse is bad enough but to lie about it in order to destroy someone you want to punish is just as bad. And I have an issue with those cases that the sheriffs let drop after the wife admits lying. False reports should be punished. Twana Brawley and Al Sharpton should have served jail time.

What´s rapidly becoming tantamount to being labelled a child molester? Being called a racist or a homophobe! No evidence is required in either case and you are guilty until proven innocent. People best watch what they wish for because while it´s your pet issue that is important to you, it is easily extrapolated to something not remotely of your liking.

From people much more eloquent than I:

In criminal law, Blackstone´s formulation is the principle that: "It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer". Benjamin Franklin stated it as, "it is better 100 guilty Persons should escape than that one innocent Person should suffer".

Defending British soldiers charged with murder for their role in the Boston Massacre, John Adams also expanded upon the rationale behind Blackstone´s Formulation when he stated:
“ It is more important that innocence should be protected, than it is, that guilt be punished; for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world, that all of them cannot be punished.... when innocence itself, is brought to the bar and condemned, especially to die, the subject will exclaim, ´it is immaterial to me whether I behave well or ill, for virtue itself is no security.´ And if such a sentiment as this were to take hold in the mind of the subject that would be the end of all security whatsoever.

I guess the only thing left for some people is to argue over the proper ratio.

We are never going to know the truth.

#5, I have read that the a physician is required to report the suspicion of abuse merely on the word of a child. No "evidence of abuse" is necessary.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley.

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party.

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine. Biden, set to travel to Kiev on April 22, will become the most senior U.S. official to visit the country since the crisis began there.

North Carolina answers Democrats’
question ‘What vote fraud?

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published
