    “McAuliffe-Linked Law Firm Fighting Virginia Student Who Said She Was Gang-Raped”

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/exclusive-mcauliffe-linked-law-firm-fighting-virginia-student-who-said-she-was-gang-raped

    “A law firm that employed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe is being paid handsomely to fight victims of alleged sexual abuse in schools, on behalf of a school system that the girls say failed to protect them.

    In one case the Hunton Andrews Kurth law firm, where McAuliffe served as a senior adviser from 2019 until recently, is battling a young woman who says that she was repeatedly raped on her Fairfax County middle school campus as a 12-year old and that she was slashed with a knife, burned with a lighter, anally penetrated, and gang raped.

    The law firm and McAuliffe’s campaign did not return request for comment, but McAuliffe reported income apparently linked to the firm in 2021, after announcing his run for governor of Virginia on December 8, 2020. Later advertisements from the firm for McAuliffe fundraisers refer to him as a “former colleague.”

    The girl in the middle school case said she was afraid of having her real name attached because one of her alleged tormentors had threatened to kill her if she came forward. The law firm is seeking to have the lawsuit thrown out because it was filed under a pseudonym, even though there is no dispute that the school system knows who she is. A judge rejected Hunton’s argument, but it filed an appeal on behalf of its client, the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS).

    In a separate case, a girl alleged that after FCPS administrators were told of an unwanted sexual incident on a band trip, a school security officer told her there was no point in seeking criminal charges, and the school gave an award to her alleged abuser. Hunton told the court that the school system lost documentation showing its investigation of the allegations – which occurred in part because it was not using a sexual harassment allegation database that it had promised to use pursuant to a federal settlement in the other girl’s case. In both cases, a women’s rights group filed “amicus” briefs to express opposition to Hunton’s arguments.”

    “Mexico-based US Embassy staffer who drugged, sexually assaulted and filmed attacks on at least 24 women was CIA spook, FBI admits”

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10133655/Embassy-staffer-accused-sexually-assaulting-24-women-14-years-CIA.html

    “Brian Jeffrey Raymond, 45, of La Mesa, California, worked for the CIA for a number of years while he sexually assaulted at least 24 women over 14 years

    The FBI confirmed Raymond’s employment with the CIA and urged other victims to come forward as not all the women in the photos/videos have been identified

    Raymond, who was based at the US Embassy in Mexico City at the time of his arrest, pleaded guilty in July to federal sexual abuse

    He also admitted transportation of obscene material charges

    He was stationed in Mexico City between 2018 and 2020, and it is unclear where the other attacks – which date back to 2006 – took place

    He will be sentenced in February and could potentially face life in prison”

  6. “The Left Is Everything They Hate”

    “The Left’s policy prescriptions are the black mirror in which their own personality is reflected and amplified.”

    https://amgreatness.com/2021/10/26/the-left-is-everything-they-hate/

    “If there is one lesson I learned working in the startup industry, it’s that people tend to assume everyone else will behave the way they behave. This was a revealing education in human behavior. Someone who accuses everyone of cheating is likely to be a cheat. Someone who tends to be trusting is likely to be trustworthy.

    Unfortunately, of course, trusting types don’t always make the best businessmen: This quirk of human nature, the tendency to see everyone else through one’s own reflection, often makes victims of the best people. There is nothing quite as rotten as seeing a crook accuse an honest man of being a crook.

    And it does make me wonder about many of the things the Left says: Do they accuse people of “not paying their fair share” of taxes because they know, in their Silicon Valley mansions, that their own lifestyles are wildly divergent from the economic views they espouse? Do they think that parents can’t be trusted to raise and educate their children because they themselves raise Hunter Bidens?

    Do they believe people can’t be trusted with guns because they themselves can’t be trusted with guns? Anyone who has grown up around guns—before he fires his first shot—learns that every gun is to be treated as loaded: Sweeping someone with the muzzle even of an unloaded gun will get you banned for life from any firing range I’ve ever visited. But perhaps if you don’t have the training or the common sense, you assume nobody has.

    Does the Left claim that society is irretrievably sexist because they themselves are sexist? They talk a good game on women’s rights, but they side with the alleged rapist and against the victim in the Loudoun county rape case. Bill Clinton continues to be welcomed and adored in polite Beltway company and elite academia, even though he has an epic record of sexual predation. And his wife Hillary was perfectly willing to help disparage and discredit Bill’s accusers for the sake of her own power. All of Hollywood knew for years everything the public now knows about Harvey Weinstein, but they still went to his parties, and continued to do so right up until their private knowledge became public.

    But there is something beyond the Left’s usual odd behavior when their affection for a rapist exceeds their sympathy for a victim: The Left has broken away from equality of rights into a bizarre sphere where they claim everything men have traditionally done is what everyone should want to do. They claim that everything women have traditionally done is worthless. Validation is on an exclusively male scale. The Left isn’t just sexist in this respect—it is misogynist. It loathes womanhood and envies manhood (while understanding neither and failing at both).

    Does the Left claim that we are all racist, and born racist, because they themselves are racist? I am speaking here not of casually offensive remarks, or even a certain governor’s blackface costumes: I mean the deeply held conviction that certain races are inferior, and can succeed (i.e., can “be like us”) only with extensive and patronizing assistance. What conclusion should we draw from statements such as “poor kids are just as bright as white kids” or the suggestion that blacks and Hispanics don’t necessarily “know how to get online” (both courtesy of Joe Biden)? American blacks were gaining in wealth faster than any other demographic when LBJ enacted the Great Society. Since then, the Left has used minorities as a permanent underclass who are expected to supply votes and menial labor in exchange for handouts on which dependence is encouraged.

    Finally, does the Left accuse everyone of trying to overthrow democracy because that is precisely what the Left is doing? How does #TheResistance of the Trump years square with gulag-style prisons where January 6 protestors can be punished and tortured before trial? How does General Mark Milley’s concern that Trump would attempt to remain in power past the end of his term square with Milley’s decision to take the executive power into his own hands? How does the claim that Republicans want to suppress voter freedom square with the Time article on “a well-funded cabal of powerful people” that spent hundreds of millions guaranteeing a “proper” result in 2020? How does the proposal for a vaccine passport square with opposing photo ID for voting?”

  8. Correct!

    ““We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business. This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive.””

    But the Covid scolds cheer for such idiocy….

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/10/second-california-in-n-out-dining-room-closed-after-refusing-to-play-vaccine-police/

    “Contra Costa County Health Services shut down the In-N-Out in Pleasant Hill after the company refused to check the vaccination status or negative test results of its customers.

    Officials claimed the burger joint created “a public health hazard by repeatedly violating a county health order intended to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

    The county gave In-N-Out numerous violation notices and fines totaling $1,750: [“]There is no attempt to single anyone out,” he [Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia] said. “In fact, it is In-N-Out that wants the special treatment.”

    No, In-N-Out doesn’t want the government to interfere with its business:

    “On Tuesday, October 26, our restaurant at 570 Contra Costa Blvd. in Pleasant Hill, California, was closed by the Contra Costa Health Services Environmental Division. The reason for the closure is that In-N-Out Associates were not actively intervening by demanding COVID-19 vaccine or testing documentation and photo identification from each dine-in Customer before serving them. Rather than acting as enforcement agents, our Associates were allowing our Customers to be responsible for their own compliance with the divisive local regulations.

    “As a Company, In-N-Out Burger strongly believes in the highest form of customer service and to us that means serving all Customers who visit us and making all Customers feel welcome. We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant Associates to segregate Customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.”

  9. They lied to protect terrorist groups they were knowingly working with.

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/10/israel-pushes-back-against-biden-admins-claims-it-didnt-get-heads-up-on-blacklisting-terror-linked-ngos/

    “President Joe Biden’s administration faces pushback from the Israeli government after State Department spokesman Ned Price repeated the White House’s claim that Jerusalem did not give a heads-up before blacklisting several Palestinian NGOs linked to a terrorist group.

    On Friday, the Israeli government designated six NGOs linked to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) as “terrorist organizations.” These NGOs operated as front groups and had funneled millions of dollars in foreign aid to the PFLP, a U.S.-designated terrorist group.

    The PFLP, a Palestinian-Marxist terrorist group, gained notoriety in the 1970s when it carried out a series of deadly aircraft hijackings and high-profile terrorist attacks — many of them with the help of far-left European terrorist organizations. The terror outfit is committed to the destruction of Israel and continues to wage terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians and military personnel.

    The Israeli foreign ministry is “baffled” over the Biden administration’s claims that it did not receive a heads-up on the blacklisting of terrorist-tied NGOs, The Jerusalem Post reported on Tuesday.

    Jerusalem is willing to clarify the matter further and plans to send a delegation to make its case to the Biden White House. “Officials from Israel’s foreign ministry and the Shin Bet are planning to send a delegation to Washington to present the Biden administration with information about the named Palestinian NGOs and their ties to the Popular Front of the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which was designated a terror group by the United States in October 1997,” the news agency Jewish News Syndicate reported on Tuesday.”

    “The Times of Israel reported the Biden White House’s dogged response to the banning of the terrorist-linked NGO network:

    The Biden administration is standing by its assertion that Israel did not give it a heads-up before its controversial decision last week to blacklist half a dozen Palestinian human rights organizations.

    “It is to the best of our knowledge accurate that we did not receive a specific heads-up about any forthcoming designations,” said US State Department spokesman Ned Price, who was asked at a press briefing Monday to respond to the Israeli claim that it had in fact notified administration officials ahead of time of the decision to classify six Palestinian rights groups as terror organizations. (…)

    “We believe respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and a strong civil society are critically important to responsible and responsive governance,” Price added, in what appeared to be a tacit rebuke of Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s decision.

    But it was the spokesman’s assertion on Friday that “the Israeli government did not give us advance warning” that set off a firestorm in Jerusalem.

    On Sunday, in a briefing to reporters, a senior Israeli official said that a Foreign Ministry official traveled to Washington and notified the US State Department’s Bureau of Counterterrorism of the impending decision and handed it relevant intelligence ahead of Gantz’s announcement.”

  10. A colleague posted the Hazard High School story this morning — obviously teachers were horrified and condemned it. Some joked if the Dukes of Hazard were involved, whether Florida Man had moved to Kentucky, and made the usual stereotypical jokes about the US South. I was curious how AJ would react and I’m not disappointed. Somehow, this is part of the culture wars and a result of social liberalism. That’s impossible.

    First, given the fact the school athletics dept posted the pics on their website suggests events of this nature had occurred before and the local community was aware. A local community which voted over 75% for Donald Trump. Even now, parents and students are holding rallies in support of the principal and mayor.

    Girls wearing Hooters shirts is definitely not okay by any leftists. In fact the chain and other like it are despised as sexist etc. Having straight boys/men dress as women for a joke or “spirit” is offensive to many in the LGBQT community as it can be viewed as mocking their sexual and gender preferences. Not to dissimilar to why dressing as a “sexy” Native during Halloween is offensive.

    I live in one of the most socially liberal places on the planet. However, consent is a really important concept and a student cannot consent to this activity even if he or she wanted too or was over 18. A student-teacher relationship is viewed as a power imbalance in which consent is impossible.

    What I see is a bunch of irresponsible adults encouraging older teens to act in an inappropriate manner and encouraging sexism, misogyny, and mocking of the LGBQT community. Sorry, social liberals do make stupid decisions and actions but this isn’t one of them — this belongs to a small town Republican community.

  11. The Republicans are pulling out all the stops on the Virginia election. A lawyer is not responsible for whom their firm represents unless they themselves accepted the case or were a senior partner who okayed it. If my school board employs a pedophile am I responsible — of course not. With large law firms its impossible to tie one lawyer to a case they didn’t work on. And for law firms, they defend even the basest of claims and persons — its their job.

    Why restaurants think they are standing up for freedom in refusing to check for vaccine certificates is weird. They enforce public health regulations concerning customers wearing shirts and shoes or cutting of their customers if they consume too much alcohol; why would a vaccine requirement be any different — all of them are public health regulations; you can’t pick and choose when you run a restaurant. If a restaurant chooses to not enforce one rule, are they also not following other public health rules — proper meat storage, hair nets for cooks, dishes washed at the right temperature etc? I’d rather eat in an establishment that follows public health rules.

    Your 8:28 AM post “The left is everything they hate” is very similar to lift wing comments on the right. The most strident homophobic religious or political leaders are often accused of being deep in the “closet”. Trump and other Republican claims of voter and corruption are often cited in the sense that their accusations mirror what they themselves would do.

    And the equating of Silicon Valley and Hollywood to the left is even more bizarre. Its leftist like Bernie Sanders who want to tax Bezos and company and corporate Democrats and Republican who keep supporting tax cuts for the rich. Finally, the amount of attention fixated on Alec Baldwin and his criminal negligence is beginning to eclipse the attention given to school shootings. Both of course point to the need for more stringent regulations and education on gun use. Obviously if you can’t trust Baldwin to use a gun properly without a training course than you can’t trust teen high school students. I’m sure the left would support mandatory gun training for both Hollywood and high school kids. If conservatives are arguing that Hollywood needs to be properly educated in gun use prior to a movie shoot, I’m sure they would have the full support of the left especially if said regulation is extended elsewhere.
