Lena Dunham, UVA, and False Rape Accusations

Rape is a horrific crime. A false accusation of rape is also a horrific crime. Both can alter your life, tragically — and perhaps forever. One, however, is tolerated while the other is not.

There was a recent scandal that, as much as anything else, illustrates the intellectual emptiness and moral ennui of the modern liberal man. It occurred in Britain but reflects a wider phenomenon; what can be said about it can be said about happenings in Sweden, France, Holland, Canada or Belgium — or the United States.

When CPS Kidnaps Children for Money

Are Child Protective Services agencies essentially kidnapping children for money? With all the federal cash that comes their way every time they seize a child from his parents, many are alleging that this is exactly the case.

A Washington state couple has had their children seized by CPS, allegedly because they refused to take them to a hospital for a check-up and treat their older child with steroids — for eczema.

In what has been called a shocking example of a call to vote fraud, the father of Mary Landrieu's chief of staff has been caught on video encouraging Democrat Louisianans to "vote twice."

In a shocking display of reportage that many observers would characterize as journalistic fraud, CNN has been whitewashing Ferguson protester violence.

Whether or not a murdered Ferguson man was targeted for being a "snitch" in the Michael Brown affair, one thing is for certain: Many black witnesses to the teen's shooting were reluctant to give testimony for fear of community retribution.

The church Michael Brown once attended was burned during the Monday Ferguson protests. Was the crime the handiwork of white supremacists, as the church's pastor suspects?

A recent investigation found that Islamic indoctrination in some British schools is so egregious that students did not know whether they should follow U.K. law or Sharia law — or which is more important.

With threats of violence in the Ferguson shooting incident being serious enough to scare policemen and their families into hiding, how sure can we be that the grand jury is not subject to the same kinds of fears?
