scribbledsilence: A woman came forward and pointed out her assaulter because she believed that it was her civic duty. A woman came forward with her allegations after years of getting therapy for the trauma she had experienced as a child. A woman came forward despite how scared she was to face her assaulter in front of a nation. A woman came forward and made a testament in front of a committee as the whole world watch, despite the hate and death threats she was getting. A woman came forward and spoke up about her assault, about what her accuser had done in detail, and had thousands upon thousands of people standing by her. Supporting her. Believing her. And yet, many people still did not listen. many people still called her a liar. many people still threatened her. many people still supported her abuser. many people still believed the word of a man over the word of a woman. Of a victim. Next time you think men are the victims and women have everything to gain by speaking up about their assault, please explain to me when you have ever seen that to be the case. All I see is that a women spoke up about her sexual assault, and yet she was pushed aside and ignored as her abuser was granted a lifetime position in the highest court in the country. All I see is an abuser has been appointed to a position in which he would be able to further control women and their rights to their own bodies. All I see is another reason why women are so frightened to and believe that they shouldn’t speak up about their assault. Because it wouldn’t matter. Because nothing would happened.

Naval Special }Warfare Group 2 out of Little Creek, Virginia conducted an investigation after a group of navyseals were photographed back in January with a Trump Flag attached to the back of their Humvee. “The inquiry was completed between the unit’s commanders and service members. It has been determined that those service members have violated the spirit and intent of applicable [Defense Department] regulations concerning the flying of flags and the apparent endorsement of political activities. Administrative corrective measures were taken with each individual based on their respective responsibility.” Lt. Jacqui Maxwell, Spokeswoman The Trump flag was attached to the back of the Humvee during a military convoy near Louisville, KY on January 29. The convoy reportedly contained 8 vehicles traveling north on Interstate 65. According to Military.com Defense Department regulations prohibit the military from endorsing or appearing to endorse any “political candidate, campaign, or cause.” Display of the large flag was also unauthorized under Navy regulations governing display of flags and pennants , Maxwell has said. In March 2016, ahead of the presidential election, the Navy published guidance reminding troops of existing regulations governing political activity. “Any activity that may be reasonably viewed as directly or indirectly associating with the DoD, or any component or personnel of the department, with a partisan political activity or is otherwise contrary to the spirit and intention of this policy guidance will be avoided,” the guidance stated. The spokeswoman did not say how many SEALS were involved in the punishment. No names were released. The original report of the flag flying from the back of their tactical vehicle went viral back at the end of January, bringing with it criticism. Thought the Navy at first said the vehicles weren’t part of an active military unit, they later backtracked and said it was an East Coast SEAL unit training at FortKnox.

Veteran journalist DanRather calls on Congress to call DonaldTrump out on his lies: Dan Rather 8 hrs These are not normal times. These are extraordinary times. And extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures When you have a spokesperson for the president of the United States wrap up a lie in the Orwellian phrase "alternative facts" When you have a press secretary in his first appearance before the White House reporters threaten, bully, lie, and then walk out of the briefing room without the cajones to answer a single question When you have a President stand before the stars of the fallen CIA agents and boast about the size of his crowds (lies) and how great his authoritarian inaugural speech was... These are not normal times. Oballeralert The press has never seen anything like this before The public has never seen anything like this before And the political leaders of both parties have never seen anything like this before What can we do? We can all step up and say simply and without equivocation. "A lie, is a lie, is a lie!" And if someone won't say it, those of us who know that there is such a thing as the truth must do whatever is in our power to diminish the liar's malignant reach into our society. There is one group of people who can do a lot very quickly. And that is Republicans in Congress. Without their support, Donald Trump's presidency will falter So here is what l think everyone in the press must do. If you are interviewing a Paul Ryan, a Mitch McConnell, or any other GOP elected official, the first question must be "what will you do to combat the lying from the White House?" If they dodge and weave, keep with the follow ups. And if they refuse to give a satisfactory answer, end the interview. Facts and the truth are not partisan. They are the bedrock of our democracy. And you are either with them, with us, with our Constitution, our history, and the future of our nation, or you are against it Everyone must answer that question Veteran journalist DanRather calls on Congress to call DonaldTrump out on his lies
