Jan 6 Committee Subpoenas The 4 Horseman of the GOP Apocalypse: McCarthy, Brooks, Biggs, and Gym Jordan

Republican Rep. Jim Jordan Named in New Ohio State University Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

In a new class action lawsuit on behalf of former male university students extreme right-wing Republican Jim Jordan has been named for failing to prevent sexual abuse perpetrated by a university doctor.

Via Rolling Stone:

Jordan, the jut-jawed Republican and anti-gay crusader in the House, is singled out in the suit: He’s one of only three former school officials named, including Strauss, though the action is aimed at all the coaches, administrators and others in positions of responsibility at OSU who, it claims, stood by while students and student-athletes were repeatedly “sexually abused, harassed, and molested,” and “forced” to seek treatment from a well-known predator even after they complained. (Strauss was the sole team doctor for the wrestlers; the men say they either had to choose to let injuries go untreated, as the lawsuit says some did, or subject themselves to yet another assault.)

The lead plaintiff, “John Doe,” says he was groped, assaulted and molested at least 20 times. The other wrestlers have told reporters how Strauss allegedly used any excuse to make them expose themselves and grope them, and the lawsuit adds some sickening details:

“On one occasion, Plaintiff suffered a rib injury while wrestling and made an appointment to see Dr. Strauss for treatment. Dr. Strauss instructed Plaintiff to drop his pants so he could examine Plaintiff’s scrotum for a hernia. Plaintiff was young and believed that Dr. Strauss’ actions were medically necessary, but felt violated and helpless.”

The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that Strauss also took photographs of the men he was forcing to disrobe unnecessarily. It describes how he “regularly touched students’ genitals and breast areas, often at the same time, regularly measured students’ scrotums, all for the purpose of his own sexual arousal and gratification, and for no legitimate medical purpose and for no other reason than to satisfy his own sexual desires.

And Jim Jordan who was the wrestling coach at the time knew all about it.

*CAVEAT: This article originally appeared in Rolling Stone of September 2019. We call this news “new” because this issue and Jordan’s involvement has flown under the radar of many and has been ignored. While of course we expect the horrid Republicans to stay quiet on this sexual abuse case and Jordan’s involvement it’s extremely disturbing that the #MeToo movement has not said a word about this. Be sure if the abuse happened to female athletes instead of males they would lose their minds.

Boston’s Cardinal Bernard Law, the Face of Church Child Sex Abuse Scandal, Dead at 86

 

Cardinal Bernard Law, the former Boston archbishop who resigned in disgrace during the church’s child sex abuse scandal, has died in Rome, where he served as arch-priest of the Papal Liberian Basilica of St. Mary Major after he was forced to resign as archbishop of Boston in 2002

Revealed by the Boston Globe’s investigative reporting team  it was uncovered that Law and other bishops before him had covered for pedophile priests in the Boston Archdiocese.

n a news conference, Law apologized to victims of abuse by a priest, John Geoghan, who had been moved from parish to parish, despite Law’s knowledge of his abuse of young boys. Law continually insisted Geoghan’s abuse was in the past even after over 30 former victims came forward.

Geoghan was eventually convicted of indecent assault and battery on a 10-year-old boy

Law never faced criminal sanctions for his role in allowing abusive priests to remain in church parishes. The scandal reverberated through the church, exposing similar allegations worldwide that compromised its moral authority and led to years of multi-million-dollar settlements. After his resignation his second career at the Vatican was a slap in the face to victims of church sex abuse, one that further undermined the church’s legitimacy.

The Vatican issued a press release early Wednesday confirming the death of Cardinal Bernard Law, with one line reading “Cardinal Bernard Law died early this morning after a long illness.”

Good.

Keith Olberman Tells Jimmy Fallon About John Boehner Scandal Rumours: Boners Next

There have been rumours for many years around Capitol Hill of John Boehner (R-OH) having affairs for years,on top of his alcoholism and finally someone is beginning to drop hints publically about it.  And that man is Keith Olberman!

“You know what’s next, right?” Olbermann asked Fallon. “Something with John Boehner. Boehner. B-O-E-H-N-E-R. You know what his nickname is? Is — is ‘boner.’ He answers to that.”

Boehners infedelity is being investigated and both the Enquirer and the NY Times are in a race to nail down all of the details. The Times bailed in early 2010 when the conservative media pushed back ahead of the anticipated release.  But now after Anthony Weiner…..

Homo Say What? – Vatican Compares Pedophile Priest To Holocaust Victims

I am just stunned at the gall ……..

“Pope Benedict XVI’s personal preacher is likening accusations against the pope and the church in the sex abuse scandal to ‘collective violence’ suffered by the Jews. The Rev. Raniero Cantalamessa said in a Good Friday sermon, with the pope listening to him in St. Peter’s Basilica, that a Jewish friend has said the accusations remind him of the ‘more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism.’ The remarks came in a prayer service at the Vatican a few hours before Benedict XVI was scheduled to take part in a Colosseum Way of the Cross procession commemorating Christ’s suffering before his crucifixtion.”

How ANYONE Gay or Straight could still belong to the Catholic Church is beyond me.

Catholic Church’s Top Exorcist States "The Devil Lives In The Vatican" – Yeah And He’s Called THE POPE!

Father Gabriel Amorth  who has conducted over 70,000 exorcisms in the last 50 years and is the Catholic Church’s top exorcist says Satan himself lives in the Vatican. (No shit there Gabe, we can’t get anything past you.)

In the last few months, the Catholic Church have been rocked by a series of sex scandals in Ireland, Holland and, most recently, Germany. Even the Pope’s brother, Father Georg Ratzinger, has admitted he hit choir boys. Italian priest Fr Amorth said: “His Holiness fully believes in casting out evil. “The Devil lives in the Vatican. Naturally it’s difficult to find proof but the true consequences are visible. “We have cardinals who don’t believe in Christ, bishops connected with demons. “Then we have these stories of paedophilia. You can see the rot when we speak of Satan’s smoke in the holy rooms of the Vatican.” Fr Amorth was speaking yesterday during the launch of Memoirs Of An Exorcist, written by Italian journalist Marco Tosatti. Fr Amorth, the basis for the priest in hit horror movie The Exorcist, said he had “six or seven assistants” to help him hold down possessed people while carrying out exorcisms.

Personally I think it would be more effective to burn Vatican City to the ground and sow the ground with salt.
