Defense bill includes years-long proposal to combat sexual assault in military

Source: npr






December 8, 20225:01 AM ET




With the new bipartisan defense bill working its way through Congress, the military is one step closer to historic changes that will impact how its sexual assault cases are prosecuted.

The move comes after an effort led by New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand for nearly the last decade to force such cases and other serious crimes such as murder and domestic violence out of the chain of command and under the purview of trained prosecutors.

Sexual assault cases in the military have been plagued with concerns from victims who fear coming forward to see prosecutions led by their own commander. Overall, a very low share of such cases go to trial or see convictions.

This year's NDAA also includes the repeal of a mandate requiring all service members to be vaccinated for COVID-19. With the vast majority of the military already vaccinated, Democrats said they reluctantly agreed to the move in a compromise with Republicans.

"We believe it is a mistake," White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, stopping short of saying Biden would veto the bill as a result. ................

As some of the tweets said........shame on them [using Walker]

I really do not know about Walkers mental ability--sometimes he seems lucid and so often he does not. But from what I have read he was like this before he entered the race. And the GOP did use him for his name.




Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham pumping the qualifications of GOP puppet Herschel Walker on Fox News while sitting on either side of a silent, grinning Walker, is a flashback to the American carnival barker ripping people off at the circus 🤡 🎪.

No more GOP CLOWNS in Congress!

Girls who escaped Arizona polygamist group found in Washington state

Dec. 6, 2022, 5:42 PM CST


A “self-proclaimed prophet” had more than 20 wives, including minors, and said it was the “Heavenly Father’s will” he participate in sex acts with them, according to an FBI affidavit.

Samuel Rappylee Bateman, of Colorado City, Arizona, said it was the will of God to encourage his followers, “including the minor children, to engage in sexual acts," according to the affidavit filed Friday in federal court in the Eastern District of Washington.

Bateman was the leader of a branch of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the affidavit said.

The affidavit was filed one day after authorities tracked down eight girls — who had been under Bateman's care but were placed in state custody in Arizona — to an Airbnb in Washington state. The girls had escaped from their group homes in Arizona, the affidavit said.

.......................................

“I have reviewed a number of the journals seized during the search warrants, and there are details referenced by several of the girls about sleeping with Bateman, kissing him, and touching him,” the affidavit said.
........................

The federal charges allege destruction of records or an attempt to destroy records in an official proceeding; tampering or attempting to tamper with an official proceeding; and destruction of records in a federal investigation, authorities have said....................................................https://twitter.com/moonbreeze2/status/1600464431288180737?s=20&t=pQtsIahy7XIn2HZ6Hd0gnA





Lawsuit against Saudi crown prince dismissed after Biden administration recommended he is given immu

Source: cnn

Updated 5:46 PM EST, Tue December 6, 2022


A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia’s crown prince after the Biden administration recommended he be granted immunity in the case brought against him by the fiancée of murdered Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Judge John Bates said in an opinion that despite his “uneasiness,” the US government told the DC District Court that Prince Mohammed bin Salman is immune since he also holds the title of prime minister and so he is “entitled to head of state immunity.”

That unease was not only due to the prince’s involvement in Khashoggi’s murder, the judge wrote, but also the timing of his appointment as prime minister of Saudi Arabia. Bin Salman, known as MBS, was only made prime minister – and therefore the technical head of the government – in late September in what observers saw as a ploy to secure head of government immunity in the lawsuit brought by Hatice Cengiz and Khashoggi’s advocacy group DAWN.

Bates noted the “suspicious timing” of the prince’s appointment and the plaintiffs’ argument that until now, only the king was the country’s prime minister.
........................


.........................


Had the administration not made that recommendation, Bates wrote Tuesday, the court would have considered the arguments that the case against MBS should not be dismissed. Instead, going against the will of the administration would “unduly interfere” with their diplomatic responsibilities. ..............................
