The Department of Education will change its approach to campus sexual misconduct and begin a public notice and comment process to issue new regulations, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced today. In a speech at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School, DeVos decried “a system run amok,” “kangaroo courts” and repeatedly emphasized the plight of the accused. “One rape is one too many … one person denied due process is one too many,” she said. Outside, protesters yelled, “Stop protecting rapists!”

Barack Hussein Obama expanded the program as he did every socialistic idea to say that Title IX protects girls and women from the threat of sexual assault, harassment or a hostile environment while pursuing their educations. The elephant in the room is Sexual misconduct definition was greatly expanded.
In letters from The Office of Civil Rights colleges and K-12 schools were told to adopt a “preponderance of the evidence” standard, a lower burden of proof than is normally required in court.
And, OCR stepped up its own investigations of campuses over Title IX complaints. If colleges didn’t comply, they stood to lose access to federal student aid, which almost no school can afford to do.
Colleges and Universities had to hire Title IX compliance officers and create, new rules, policies and procedures. All of these new rules and regulations adding to the cost of every student’s college education.
I have three daughters, I would not want any of them to be the object of legitimate sexual harassment in college. I also have a son, I would not want him unfairly labeled for the rest of his life because some school is looking for everything that could possibly be labeled harassment.
As Secretary Devos stated “If everything is harassment, then nothing is harassment”. Just like if everything is racism, then nothing is racism. Related post Racist solar eclipse of 2017
In an emotional address, DeVos told anecdotes about accused students contemplating, and committing, suicide. She mentioned a controversial case in which a University of Southern California football player was expelled for what his girlfriend says was merely “playful roughhousing.”
She also denigrated sexual harassment codes that “trample free speech rights.”
President Trump on Monday suggested that he still supports raising minimum age to buy guns despite the idea being left out of a White House proposal over the weekend.
In a series of morning tweets the President said he supports strengthening background checks, arming school officials and banning bump stocks.
The president also said he supports raising the age for purchasing rifles to 21, but said there is not enough political support to make the idea law.
“Very strong improvement and strengthening of background checks will be fully backed by White House. Legislation moving forward. Bump Stocks will soon be out. Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to conceal carry, subject to State Law. Armed guards OK, deterrent!” Trump tweeted.

The President added “On 18 to 21 Age Limits, watching court cases and rulings before acting. States are making this decision. Things are moving rapidly on this, but not much political support (to put it mildly).

The White House announced on Sunday that it is expressing a federal commission to examine how to better address gun violence in schools. It is clear however that Trump will not be proposing raising minimum age on gun purchases. He is going to leave proposing any bill up to Congress. And there is no political support for raising minimum age on gun purchases.
This is the truth of the matter on guns. There is no support whatsoever on raising minimum gun age. If the Democrats want to listen to that young punk David Hogg and propose federal gun control we have mid-term elections coming up, let them run on gun controls. It will be a slaughter of epic proportions. Running on gun control is even less popular than running on tax increases which the Democrats have tried a few times with poor results.
Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein victims keep coming out. Former President Obama responded on Tuesday to the allegations of sexual harassment.
“Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein,” Obama said in a statement. “Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.
“We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories,” he added. “And we all need to build a culture — including by empowering our girls and teaching our boys decency and respect — so we can make such behavior less prevalent in the future.”

Obama’s statement follows one released by the worst loser in American politics Hillary Clinton, who said of Democrat donor Weinstein such behavior “cannot be tolerated.
Over the years, Weinstein raised millions of dollars for Democratic organizations and candidates, including Obama and Clinton, and hosted a number of fundraisers that Obama attended while in office. The Obamas’ 19-year-old daughter, Malia, interned for Weinstein Co. this year.
Since last week’s New York Times story detailing accusations against Weinstein, numerous conservatives have pointed to Weinstein’s support for Democratic causes and lobbed charges of hypocrisy given previous attacks from the left on the likes of Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump over issues of sexual harassment.
The list of Democrats giving Weinstein donations to charity is growing every day. So far Senator Charles E. Schumer, Elizabeth Warren and Al Franken along with Clinton will be giving to charity. No doubt some of them for the first time.
Clinton said in an interview with CNN (Communist News Network) that she was “sick” and “shocked” when she found out about the sexual assault allegations against the Democrat donor.
