Betsy DeVos Ends a Campus Witch Hunt
New York Times, by Bret Stephens

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 9/9/2017 2:47:03 PM

Suppose you’re the kind of thoughtful liberal who concluded from Donald Trump’s election that you’ve been living in a bubble and need to better understand the causes of America’s distemper. Suppose, too, that you have friends who voted for Trump — and who you know for a fact are neither bigots nor buffoons. Why are they so angry? How could they feel so desperate, politically speaking, to cast their ballots for him? For a sense of the answer, look no further than Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s announcement Thursday that her department would revisit the Obama administration’s Title IX guidelines on

Comments:
I salute Ms. DeVos. Remember when Hillary Clinton said women don´t like about sexual assaults?

I honestly am shocked that this was published by the NYT. I guess once in awhile they let one slip by.

I really liked Bret Stephens´ articles in the Wall Street Journal, and lamented that he joined The Times.
Now I am joyful that NYT has a writer not in the hard left column.

Another of the mind boggling overreaches by the previous administration. Sexual assaults do occur on campus, but so do false accusations.

Bret Stephens had better watch his back if he´s writing sensible opinion pieces like this for the NY Times. The daggers will come out, especially for anyone who declines to genuflect before the holy name of Barack Hussein Obama.

Good article. Like the earlier poster, one wonders how it made it into the New York Times. There are the usual outraged Libs in the comments, but there are a surprising number of commenters who agree with the article. That must be why they closed the comments.

Wealthy Conservatives enter politics to actually do good.

The swamp panics at the thought that they can´t be bought.

Both Trump and De Vos may not be the Libertarians I might like but one goes to war with the army one has...not the army one might like.

....and yes, Donald Rumsfeld will always be a hero of mine.

Remove all taxpayer money from colleges and universities. Privatize them. Any taxpayer assistance goes directly to students and parents of students, which may only be applied to institutions that demonstrate freedom of thought, freedom of speech, absence of political correctness, absence of anti-european-american racism. and intellectual diversity reflecting the same ideological proportions as the general public, i.e., majority non-liberal faculty and administrative staff.

An accusation of rape belongs at the local police station, not in the Dean´s office.

For the college to handle these cases in a "tribunal" is a severe miscarriage of justice.
The accuser doesn´t even have to be present? Or face questions from the accused´s attorney?

How a decade of the Kardashians
radically changed America
New York Post, by Maureen Callahan    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/24/2017 4:37:44     Post Reply
What better way to mark ten years of the Kardashian scourge than a well-timed scandalous rumor? On Friday, two days before tonight’s two-hour “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” special on E!, TMZ reported that 20-year-old Kylie Jenner, the youngest of matriarch Kris Jenner’s six children, is pregnant by 25-year-old rapper Travis Scott. In August, matriarch Kris Jenner and her five clients/daughters posed for The Hollywood Reporter, as siblings do, in flesh-toned lingerie, draped over and around each other seductively. It’s America’s new normal, established by Kris. In the piece, she recounted hijinks from the show’s pilot. “The watercooler chatter from the first episode

First ladies are usually, but not always, eager to establish themselves as separate but equal personalities. Some of them are content to be the “wife of,” but nearly all of them leave their mark on a presidency, even if only their husbands know the details of how and when the mark was applied. (Snip)Melania Trump, our first immigrant first lady, harks to the traditions and verities that were the strength of an earlier time. She wants to promote good and effective family life, and a recognition of the effect good families have on the nation’s comfort and security. “Show me

President Trump rallied with his Alabama supporters on Friday evening for more than an hour in a last-ditch effort to push incumbent Sen. Luther Strange across the finish line in next week’s tight Republican runoff. During a campaign rally in Huntsville, the president said he appreciated how Strange agreed to vote for ObamaCare replacement legislation this summer without asking any favors from him. “I called him up a week ago and I said, ‘You know, I think you’re down by a few points,’” Trump said. “But I’m going to come to Alabama and I’m going to make a speech for

The end is still nigh -- just not as nigh as it was earlier this week, a Doomsday writer says. David Meade, who claimed the world is ending Saturday when a mysterious planet collides with Earth, is now backtracking on the calamitous claim. Meade said the world won´t end on Sept. 23 after all, but instead Saturday will only mark the beginning of a series of catastrophic events to occur over several weeks. “The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending,” he told the Washington Post. “A major part of the world will not be the same

One of my favorite kinds of news stories is the report of a new scientific study that verifies the obvious. You’ve seen them. New research finds that heterosexual men are attracted to very attractive women. Evidence collected by wildlife researchers has confirmed that bears really do use the woods as toilets. But some research that corroborates the obvious is exciting because some people refuse to accept the obvious. Which brings me to the work of Dr. Gregory Berns, a neuroscientist at Emory University and the author of What It’s Like to Be a Dog. Berns has, from what I can

In just 12 days Mexicans have experienced two powerful earthquakes that have killed at least 300 people. Mexico City is no stranger to earthquakes, on the day the latest one struck, residents had just completed an earthquake drill marking the anniversary of one of the country’s most devastating quakes, an 8.1 magnitude quake that happened 30 years ago and killed more than 10,000 people. An earlier quake that hit on September 7 was also a magnitude 8.1 quake and hit mostly in the southern part of the country in areas like Oaxaca and Chiapas. It was the most powerful to hit Mexico in

After Harvey and Irma, states grapple

Three weeks after Hurricane Harvey made landfall, Texans who first endured storm-force winds followed by historic flooding now have another mountainous problem on their hands: millions of tons of garbage. According to the latest estimates, nearly a half-billion dollars will be spent hauling away the trash – twisted, shattered and waterlogged remains of families’ former lives – to landfills. Local, county and state officials in Texas quickly have mobilized procedures for debris removal, aiming to make President Trump and Gov. Greg Abbott’s pledges of revival a reality and not follow the example of New Orleans, where the slow-moving Hurricane Katrina response has

Congress, fix and pass this
Obamacare replacement
Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/21/2017 5:14:28     Post Reply
It should be axiomatic among Republicans that Obamacare must be repealed and replaced during the current Congress. The last opportunity to do so appears to be the Graham-Cassidy bill. That being so, it must pass, and it must be improved before it passes. Specifically, the bill´s experiments in actual health insurance markets, need to be made more robust. It is only by passing a repeal and replace bill that Republican politicians can avoid breaking the cardinal promise they have made to voters for the past four election cycles. It was the central rallying cry of John Boehner´s successful retaking of

Multiple women in relationships with Imran Awan, the indicted former IT aide for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, have recently called Virginia law enforcement and alleged being abused by him, police reports obtained under Virginia’s Freedom of Information Act show.

Rand Paul´s Epic Obamacare Flip-Flop?
Weekly Standard, by John McCormack    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/21/2017 4:58:18     Post Reply
At the end of July, Kentucky senator Rand Paul advocated and voted for the so-called "skinny repeal" bill of Obamacare. "Skinny repeal is better than no repeal," Paul said on Fox News. "The reason I will advocate and vote for skinny repeal is that it´s the best I can get." But now that Republicans are trying to take one last shot at Obamacare by passing the Graham-Cassidy bill, Paul is adamantly opposed to the "better than nothing" argument. "It keeps 90 percent of the spending of Obamacare and reshuffles it," Paul told reporters on Monday, dismissing Graham-Cassidy as "Obamacare Lite." "If you

Anthony Weiner, three-time perv
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 9/21/2017 4:38:00     Post Reply
Boy, did New Yorkers dodge a bullet when Anthony Weiner first pressed the wrong “send” button on his Twitter feed. That became even more painfully obvious Wednesday when federal prosecutors unveiled new details of the two-time mayoral candidate’s sordid sexting sessions with a 15-year-old girl. This, as they asked Manhattan federal court Judge Loretta Preska to send Weiner to prison next week for 21 to 27 months — because letting him remain free, as he’s proposed, would be “simply inadequate.” Yet if he hadn’t mass-tweeted that first errant photo of his aroused underwear shot in 2011, the public might never have known

A student from the Kyrgyz Republic was arrested Monday for allegedly using a penny to engrave the letters “HYPT MAEK” into the fifth pillar on the north side of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, Fox 5 DC reported. Nurtilek Bakirov, 21, was arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property, the report said. If convicted, the maximum penalty he faces is 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine. The report — citing U.S. Park Police — said an officer caught Bakirov the act. Last month, the Lincoln Memorial was tagged with red spray paint with an anti-law message. A

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC).

Sen.

Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen.

His pre-dawn raid was meant to intimidate Manafort, not just to collect evidence. Robert Mueller’s sprawling special-counsel investigation is playing hardball. It was not enough to get a search warrant to ransack the Virginia home of Paul Manafort, even as the former Trump campaign chairman was cooperating with congressional investigators. Mueller’s bad-asses persuaded a judge to give them permission to pick the door lock. That way, they could break into the premises in the wee hours, while Manafort and his wife were in bed sleeping. They proceeded to secure the premises — of a man they are reportedly investigating for tax and financial crimes, not gang murders and Mafia hits — by drawing their guns on the stunned couple, apparently to check their pajamas for weapons. Mueller’s probe more resembles an empire, with 17 prosecutors retained on the public dime. So . . .
