One-Sided Campus-Rape Bill
National Review Online, by Caroline Kitchens

Original Article

Posted By:emilyj, 8/7/2014 10:54:20 AM

Eight well-intentioned senators, four Republicans and four Democrats, have come up with complicated and expensive legislation to address an alleged epidemic of sexual predation on campus. What could go wrong? Citing widely used but shaky statistics on campus sexual assault, the coalition of senators explained that the Campus Accountability and Safety Act (CASA) will “better protect and empower students, and hold both perpetrators and institutions accountable.”

Real narcissists always know what is best for other people. It´s called an anti-social personalty disorder. (It´s who and what they are.)

Senator Claire McCaskill will always know what is best. Her facial expression shows it.

There are criminal laws to deal with rape. We don´t need Congress passing bills about it.

If you are raped, call the police. Period.

I believe that a university should do all it can to make its students safe. That being said -- I am not sure how a university et al should be set up to handle criminal behavior. That is a police and court function. Making a nongovernmental entity interfere with the police function will just get in the way of getting justice done.

Just when I think Marco is getting his head out along comes this.

I never thought much about the others, but Rubio´s backing of this knee-jerk bill lowers my opinion of him a lot. What was he thinking? (Or WAS he thinking?)
I´ve crossed Rubio off my list of possible future Republican candidates for national office.

Perhaps these stupid pubbies think sponsoring a bill like this will immunize them against the "war on women" meme. They should should think again. . . that is assuming they did any thinking before they signed on to this.

If you´ve been raped, go to the ER at the local hospital, not the school´s health center and have the hospital contact the real police, not the campus cops.

Congress will say "Feed ´em all saltpeter and let Nature take it course".

Smart people will echo #3.

It is a local matter and should stay that way.

Congress -- go back on vacation please

Rubio! Rubio is part of this - wouldn´t you know. He is a younger version of McCain. Anything to get his face time on tv.

Is it any wonder more Americans aren´t jumping off bridges??

Half the time, the coeds decide it might have been rape when they sober up the next morning and can´t recall consenting and actively participating. If they must pass a law to reduce sexual assault at colleges, pass one that regulates alcohol consumption in frat house parties. (Unenforceable, I know.)

Whatever the punishment is for any man found guilty of rape, the exact same punishment must be given to any woman found to have falsely accused a man of rape.

Otherwise there is no real fairness or equity in this law!!!

For true Title IX equality, it should be spelled out in the school´s rules that a false accusation warrants the same punishment to the woman lying as the man would get for the rape.

Much of what we hear about the plight of American women is false. Some faux facts have been repeated so often they are almost beyond the reach of critical analysis. Though they are baseless, these canards have become the foundation of Congressional debates, the inspiration for new legislation and the focus of college programs. Here are five of the most popular myths that should be rejected by all who are genuinely committed to improving the circumstances of women.

In January 2010, University of North Dakota student Caleb Warner was accused of sexually assaulting a fellow student. Using a preponderance-of-the-evidence standard, a UND tribunal found Warner guilty of sexual misconduct and swiftly expelled him. Yet the police, presented with the same evidence, never arrested or charged Mr. Warner. After a three-month investigation, they charged Warner’s accuser with filing a false report and issued a warrant for her arrest.

Hillary Clinton has revealed that she worked through her husband’s affair whilst he was President by making him go through an agonising ´truth and reconciliation´ process. The former US Secretary of State said that she forced Bill Clinton into South Africa-style hearings where he had to be completely honest before she forgave him. She said she was inspired by the country´s former leader Nelson Mandela and that she had to act otherwise she would remain in a mental ´prison´ for the rest of her life. Mrs Clinton, 66, has rarely spoken about her husband’s infidelity with White House intern Monica

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes. (Snip) When Obama declared he had no strategy yet on ISIS a few weeks ago he was perceived as a weak and indecisive leader, but is that all the reason for his reluctance to fight ISIS? Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry. Take a look at what she wore for all that. A little too full for her figure? (Photographs).. A flattering

The U.S. government Friday defended its handling of James Foley´s case after the slain journalist´s mother told CNN that officials suggested the family could be charged if they tried to raise money to free him. Saying everything possible had been done to bring the journalist home, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters officials worked very closely with Foley´s family and with his employer, GlobalPost CEO Philip Balboni. "Any advice that this department or other departments give to the families about what they should do in these situations is based solely on what is best for returning their loved one

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

President Barack Obama´s trip to Los Angeles in July was billed as ´the last the President will be making this year.´But it seems he simply can´t stay away from California´s famously deep-pocketed Democratic donors. He will be back on October 9 for a fundraiser hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow at her home in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The evening will include a reception and the opportunity to ask questions ´at an intimate dinner,´ per an email from a Hollywood fundraiser.Tickets for the Democratic National Committee event will start at $1,000 per person for the reception. Donors of $15,000 also get a photo and

She is building stamina through tough new workouts with a personal trainer and yoga. She is talking about how to address income inequality without alienating corporate America. And she is reviewing who’s who in the Democratic Party in Iowa, a crucial early voting state in the presidential cycle. Hillary Rodham Clinton has said publicly that she will decide early next year whether she will undertake a second campaign for the presidency. But inside the Clinton operation, the groundwork is already quietly being laid for a candidacy. On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton will appear at the 37th annual Iowa steak fry hosted by Senator Tom Harkin;

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.

House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told “Real Time” host Bill Maher that Democrats are not “fear-mongers” but in the same breath said civilization is doomed if Republicans manage to take control of the Senate in November. “It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate,” the California Democrat told Mr. Maher on his show Friday night, which aired live from Washington. “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate.” Mr. Maher pointed out that voter turnout will most likely lean to the right saying, “Nobody comes out

On the one hand, California U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi claims that Democrats are not “fear-mongers;” on the other hand, she believes civilization is doomed if Republicans take control of the Senate from Democrats in November. The former speaker of the House made those dramatic, incongruous statements on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which aired live from Washington, D.C. Friday. Maher asked Pelosi about recent polling which shows that the GOP is likely to take over the upper chamber and asked, given gridlock in Washingon, why it matters that Democrats keep control. “It would be very important for the Democrats to

Adrian Peterson turned himself in early Saturday morning, FOX NFL Insider Jay Glazer reported , after authorities in Texas issued an arrest warrant for the star Minnesota Vikings running back on a charge of child abuse for using a branch to spank his son. Peterson surrendered to authorities in Montgomery County and was released on a $21,000 bond, according to Glazer. However, Peterson has been benched for Sunday’s game against New England. Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, said that the charge accuses Peterson of using a branch, or switch, to spank one of his sons, whose age was not disclosed but was widely
