The former president of a fraternity at a private Christian university in Texas has been spared jail time after being accused of raping a fellow student at a party, in a decision which has devastated the victim and her family. Jacob Anderson, 23, was accused of repeatedly raping a woman at a party in 2016, after she was plied with drink. A Texas judge on Monday accepted a plea bargain, allowing the former Baylor university student to walk free and serve only community service. The woman, who was 19 at the time, attacked Anderson and the district attorneys in her victim impact statement – expressing her fury that they did not show up in court for Monday’s decision. "If I had the courage to come back to Waco and face my rapist and testify, you could at least have had enough respect for me to show up today,” she said. “You both will have to live with this decision to let a rapist run free in society without any warning to future victims.” Jacob Anderson, in a photo released...

The racial wealth gap is real. But a guaranteed income is not going to fix it. Yes, I feel the current distribution of wealth is grotesquely unfair. Yes, I believe that those who cannot or will not work should not be allowed to starve. Yes, I would be against plans to eliminate or cut the existing welfare system as long as it is needed. Yes, I believe that we should build a community in which everyone’s needs are met.Yet I oppose a universal guaranteed basic income.My objections have surprised many people, but they are consistent with what I think is the solution to our economic justice problem. I favor deep democracy replacing the rule of capital in our lives. This would require reparations and the reconstruction of the commons to include the Earth and the financial resources that have been created by our labor within exploiting systems.Guaranteed basic income is simply more widely available welfare. It would only help people have more access to consumption without altering a...

Steve Schmidt, former campaign strategist for former President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), slammed President Donald Trump Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” as a “vile” and “corrupt man” who runs “an illegitimate and criminal regime.” Schmidt referred to Trump’s character as “unprecedentedly loathsome and despicable.” “We have a small man, a vile man, a mean man, a corrupt man, a dishonest man. There will be no growth. There will be no slowing down of any of it,” Schmidt declared. “What we’re going to see in the months and year ahead is the resiliency of the American constitutional system, our Republican form of government which has endured since 1787 and singularly was designed by the genius of our Founding Fathers in anticipation of the moment when we would have a man like Donald Trump as president. He continued, “It would not have surprised the Founding Fathers that we have a...

The Trump administration is expected to propose weakening protections for U.S. wetlands on Tuesday, in a move sought by ranching and mining interests but one that will likely be held up in the courts amid opposition from environmentalists. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will make a water policy announcement at 11:25 Eastern Time (1625 GMT), the agency said without elaborating. The EPA is expected to relax protection standards in the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule that went into effect during the administration of former President Barack Obama.

Mueller laid out the case in a new court filing — and said his team could back it up with evidence, if need be. When Special Counsel Robert Mueller declared that President Donald Trump's former Campaign Chair Paul Manafort was in breach of his plea deal, observers were immediately asking: What did he lie about?Now we know. In a new court filing on Friday night, Mueller spelled out the subjects about which he believes Manafort was lying.Some parts of the filing were redacted, leaving much of the context a mystery, but it gives a clear outline of the issues that torpedoed the agreement. Why Manafort reportedly lied, however, remains obscure.1. Manafort's interactions with Konstantin KilimnikKilimnik is a political operative and past associate of Manafort who has worked in Russia and Ukraine, where Manafort served on the campaign of former President Viktor Yanukovych.

The First Family has broken with tradition: There’s no canine companion in the White House. In his homily for the state funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on December 5, Rev. Russell Levenson Jr. joked that Sully, Bush’s loyal service dog, had probably received more press attention in recent days than the president himself. That sentiment echoed Fala, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Scottish terrier, who was so popular with the US public that he received more fan mail than the president himself.Historically, First Canines have been a staple of life in the White House. Barack Obama had Bo and Sunny, two Portuguese water dogs. George W. Bush had Spot, a Springer spaniel, and Barney, a Scottish terrier. Bill Clinton had Buddy, a chocolate Labrador retriever. Before he needed the services of Sully, George H.W. Bush had Millie, a Springer spaniel (Spot’s mother). Ronald Reagan had Lucky, a fluffy black Bouvier des Flandres. John F. Kennedy had Charlie, a Welsh...
