Jury orders blogger to pay $8.4 million
to ex-Army colonel she accused of rape

Washington Post, by Tom Jackman

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/12/2017 5:07:03 AM

Col. David “Wil” Riggins, after a highly decorated Army career that included multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, was on the verge of promotion to brigadier general in July 2013 when he got a phone call at the Pentagon from the Army’s Criminal Investigative Division to come in for a meeting. Once there, he learned that a blogger in Washington state had just accused him of raping her, when both were cadets at West Point in 1986. An investigation was underway. Riggins waived his right to an attorney and immediately gave a statement denying any sexual assault of the woman, Susan

Another case of a female admitting that she was passing-out drunk, but could definitely remember being raped while she was passed out. Thank goodness this female never was commissioned into the Army.

She sounds like a First Class Liar. So glad he won his case. He certainly was hurt financially by what she did and but will never see the money he was awarded by the Judge.

Life throws curve balls every now and then. Riggins is the kind of guy that meets the challenge and moves on. While the remedy here is based on money (as if money fixes anything), Riggins earned something that surpasses all the rest: honor and dignity. He´ll be fine.

Shannon, OTOH, is a professional victim. And a member of the fairer sex. Despite showing some early promise, her future is bleak. Too bad she has children.

This is what I am not understanding about people. Unless you are very, very certain about the character of people at a party, maybe a person should reconsider their attendance. Too much alcohol and drugs make for bad decisions. There are a ton of other fun things to do but it just seems like everyone is drawn to alcohol and drugs. I believe this ex-army colonel should have found something else to attend.

The ´left´ probably rolled her out to kill Riggin´s career when they found out he was going to be promoted...
That is the kind of stuff they do. Look at all the other claims against conservatives if you don´t agree....

And that, almost above all other reasons is why women should not be allowed in the command and fighting forces of any nation- not as a blended force. The potential damage they can do is chaotic. I would not care if they had their own branch of service- The Russians and Israelis did well with all-female brigades, tank outfits and fighter pilots. so, I´m not saying they can´t fight. It the mix in intimate circumstances, which the military by it´s very nature experiences.

Would like to read but do not give WP any clicks. Agree with #9 don´t mix the sexes when you have women alongside of men to do the job of the man, most of the time the man has to pick up the slack. My son (army) experienced this first-hand.

Slam me all you would like (I am female); but it seems women have been messing up since the Garden of Eden.

She´s an ex-girlriend and self-proclaimed "Rebel". They guy is up for promotion to flag rank. She may not read the military press, but I´d not be surprised to learn she still has friends among her former classmates who may have mentioned that her old boyfriend was up for his star. I don´t think it´s any leftist conspiracy.

I´ve seen a number of military and civilian careers destroyed or damaged after accusations of harassment. It´s been my observation that, in any large company, when a woman makes an accusation, HR comes in and dumps on the man like a ton of bricks. More than once I´ve seen HR complete their investigation without the accused even being aware or allowed to give their side of events.

As soon as Shannon decided to go public with her accusations, she needed to channel them through the justice system. Accusing somebody of rape, assault, or murder through a blog is, even in the best case, vigilante justice. Even if the accusation was true, the revenge is, at best, just as bad.

Just wanted to drop a comment vis-à-vis the "they didn´t let me put on witnesses against his character" dodge: The colonel´s character has nothing to do with whether there was "free beer" at West Point, whether the tunnel can be seen from the road, whether the Colonel had a car or was allowed to drive it on campus, etc., etc.--the kinds of factual discrepancies which convinced the jury that Shannon was making stuff up. Hopefully the appeal will go nowhere.

How Alan Dershowitz Went From Hillary
Donor to Trump’s Attack Dog on Russia
Daily Beast, by Betsy Woodruff    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/23/2017 5:32:04     Post Reply
Alan Dershowitz—a liberal Harvard law professor and ardent backer of Hillary Clinton—has emerged as one of the Russia probe’s most vocal critics. He’s likened the investigation to a KGB hunt, and special counsel Bob Mueller to a notoriously obsessed sailor. It’s made him a Fox News fixture, and that has left some of his counterparts in the legal world baffled and skeptical. But those close to Dershowitz say his vociferous criticism of Mueller’s investigation is the opposite of surprising—and that Mueller and Dershowitz have a history. That’s according to Harvey Silverglate, a criminal defense attorney who has worked with Dershowitz over the

Clearly frustrated with the slow pace of legislating in Washington and his treatment by the national media, President Trump returned to what works for him: campaigning. Trump reprised all his campaign´s greatest hits at a rally in Arizona, a state he won both in the Republican primaries and the general election, patterned after the raucous, free-wheeling events he held while running for president last year. As he frequently did during the campaign, Trump vented to the crowd about the things vexing him about the media and Washington. He was especially outraged by the characterization of his reaction to the white

Mitch McConnell has been taking quite a beating from President Trump for failing to get a health care reform bill through the Senate, but even Mr. Trump has largely conceded that John McCain, alone blew up the majority leader’s painstakingly crafted compromise. The president’s criticisms seem rather tame compared to several popular conservative pundits. Sean Hannity, for one, rails that Mr. McConnell is not only untrustworthy but “spineless” and needs to “retire,” while Mark Levin talks of the leader’s “disastrous reign.” Disastrous? Whatever his failings, a good case can be made that if it weren’t for the shrewd tactics of the

Hillary Clinton´s former campaign aides and other liberals who still lamenting the results of the 2016 election fired back at the New York Times on Monday for how the paper covered Clinton last year. Times reporter Glenn Thrush was bombarded by critics on Monday when he shared a news article on Twitter about the Secret Service running out of money to pay its staff due to President Trump and his family´s frequent traveling. "Trump´s gilded lifestyle is bankrupting the Secret Service," Thrush tweeted. One person sarcastically replied to Thrush´s tweet, "But the emails," a reference to the wide and extensive media coverage of

You catch them in several false statements about their qualifications for a credit line and their intended use of the money. The strongest part of your case, though, involves the schemers’ transferring the loot to their native Pakistan. So . . . what’s the best evidence you could possibly have, the slam-dunk proof that their goal was to steal the money and never look back? That’s easy: One after the other,

Trump Ends Obama’s ‘Water Bottle Ban’

The Trump administration is ending a policy implemented by former president Barack Obama that attempted to ban water bottles at national parks. The National Park Service announced last week it was ending the so-called Water Bottle Ban, which the Obama administration implemented in 2011 to "reduce our carbon footprint." "In its commitment to providing a safe and world-class visitor experience, the National Park Service is discontinuing Policy Memorandum 11-03, commonly referred to as the ‘Water Bottle Ban,´" the agency said in a statement.

First, cut off the birth control

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial    Original Article

In January 2012, President Barack Obama finalized his regulation banning employers from offering their staff health insurance unless it paid the entire cost of birth control. The penalty for providing coverage without birth control was set at $100 a day per worker — more than 15 times as much as the penalty for offering no coverage at all. This mandate was not part of the Obamacare law passed by Congress. It probably wouldn´t have passed if the controversial proviso had been included. In the time since, the mandate has been battered by litigation. A unanimous Supreme Court recently rebuffed the Obama administration´s

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had
