Peter Yarrow, convicted in the
1970's of "making sexual advances" on a 14-year-old girl, will
perform on Friday at a rally organized by the nonprofit Code Pink: Women for
Yarrow went to prison after making
sexual advances on a 14-year-old girl and her 17-year-old sister in 1970 when
they went to his Washington, D.C. hotel room to ask for his autograph, according to the New York Post. Yarrow pleaded
guilty to taking "indecent liberties" with the 14-year-old and spent
only three months behind bars.
The performer was pardoned by
President Jimmy Carter on his last day in office in 1981.
Yarrow has extensive ties within
liberal circles: he sang at John Kerry's 1995 wedding, performed at Occupy Wall
Street for protesters, and performed for Barack Obama's campaign. Yarrow is
also godfather to one of Kerry's children.
Yarrow has a history of social and
anti-war activism. He traveled to Vietnam to "apologize" on behalf of
the United States in 2005 for America's participation in the Vietnam War.
The two-day Code Pink protest is
called "Divest from the War Machine" and the activist will
perform at the "U.S. responsibility for the legacies of war" vigil.

His participation comes amid a
current climate of strong scrutiny of sex crimes in the wake of film
producer Harvey Weinstein's downfall. Many women are coming forward to tell
their stories of sexual harassment and assault, using the hashtag #MeToo on
Over the years, the performer has
repeatedly made excuses for his behavior in 1970. "You feel terrible about
it, make your amends,’’ he told the Baltimore Jewish Times in 2006. "In that time, it was common practice,
unfortunately – the whole groupie thing.’’
Yarrow came to fame as a member of
the music group Peter, Paul, & Mary in the 1960s.
Ed. We of the older generation
remember Yarrow as the Peter of Peter, Paul and Mary.Yarrow went to PRISON after making “sexual advances” to a 14 year old
in 1970. (Undoubtedly the only time he EVER did such a thing.)Yet here he is, performing
before the leftist group, Women for Peace. Shouldn’t these women ostracize
Yarrow for his actions; hold him responsible for the grotesque abuse of a
Of COURSE not. And the
Weasel Zippers site is right on the money with the reason for the liberal
groups’ “understanding” attitude and that is, Yarrow (like ALL leftists) is
above reproach “as long as he has the right liberal credentials.”
Yarrow has spent
decades advancing the leftist agenda. He asks no questions, ignores facts and
reason, in short, he is the perfect representative of the left. Such unwavering
dedication provides Yarrow the “right liberal credentials,” relieving him of
responsibility for little character flaws such as those associated with the
gross perversion of a child molester!
Get it? As long as you’re
“thinking” right, what you do doesn’t really matter!
The following article appeared on
Breitbart on October 14th
By Katherine Rodriguez
child actor Corey Feldman has spent years calling out the practice of Hollywood
A-listers sexually exploiting young actors who try to make their mark in show
A video clip
from a 2013 episode of The View where he shares these revelations about
the abuse in the industry has resurfaced after allegations
came to light that disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed and
abused those working in the industry:
“There are people that were the people
that did this to both me and Corey [Haim] that are still working. They’re still
out there, and that are some of the richest most powerful people in this
business. And they do not want me saying what I am saying right now,” Feldman
tells TheView panelists.
The former ’80s child star tried to
explain to host Barbara Walters that he, along with his best friend Corey Haim,
had been sexually abused by older, powerful men in Hollywood. Feldman added
that he believed the abuse led Haim to drug addiction and ultimately his sudden
death in 2010.
“Are you saying they are pedophiles
and that they are still in this business?” Walters asks incredulously, to which
Feldman replies, “Yes.”
“They don’t want me here right now.
They want me dead,” he added.
After Feldman advised parents who
want their kids to enter show business not to go into it blindly, Walters cuts
him off, saying, “You’re damaging an entire industry!”
“I’m sorry,” Feldman replied.
Social media users immediately chimed
in after Feldman tweeted the 2013 clip on Thursday, acknowledging a problem
that Walters ignored.
Ed.Revealing of the leftist mind set,
isn’t it! A child is sexually assaulted by pedophiles, a common and fairly
widespread practice in Hollywood, yet Barbara Walters reacts by accusing Corey
Feldman of “damaging” the movie industry! Imagine a conservative scolding a
rape victim for damaging her attacker’s business interests! The howling left would be
The lesson is a simple one: leftists are a tight-knit club advancing an agenda which they consider infinitely more important than commonly accepted notions of right and wrong. They are shameless hypocrites; the wealthy among them must be protected as money and power are vitally important to the cause.
And it all comes down to this: if a leftist is true to the cause, he can do no wrong, for his dough and intentions are EVERYTHING. And he will be protected to the bitter end by his fellow cheats, liars, hypocrites and shameless associates.
A mother is facing charges in
connection with the violent assault of her daughter’s elementary school teacher
on the North Side.
KDKA’s Kym Gable reports that the
suspect, 29-year-old Dai’Shonta Williams, was arraigned Thursday night on six
charges: three counts of aggravated assault, and one count each of terroristic
threats, stalking and reckless endangerment. She was unable to post the $50,000
bail and was taken to the Allegheny County Jail.
Dai' Shonta Williams
The incident allegedly started
Wednesday when 46-year-old Janice Watkins, a teacher at Pittsburgh King PreK-8
School, confiscated a cell phone from a fourth grade girl. The district has a
no cell phone policy.
While confiscating the phone, the
child allegedly bit Watkins. As a result, Williams was called to the school.
During a meeting between the
Williams, Watkins and the student, the child claimed Watkins had choked her.
Williams became agitated at how the situation was being handled and allegedly
stated, “She [Watkins] is going to get it later.”
Later, investigators say Watkins was
driving home along Ohio River Boulevard. While sitting in traffic on the West
End exit off-ramp, she noticed a black male and female get out of their
vehicle. Watkins’ driver’s side window was down as she was speaking to her
mother on the phone.
The woman approached Watkins’ car and
allegedly threw a brick through the open window. Watkins was struck in the
head. She said after she was hit, the woman opened her door, dragged her out in
the road and began punching and kicking her.
The latest nonsense from the left is
that President Trump forced the collapse of Obamacare. In fact, the iceberg hit
this ship called the Affordable Health Care Act years ago, as Avik
Roy reminded us:
[T]he reason ObamaCare weighed in at
2,000 pages is because the law passed by Democrats detailed, in highly specific
language, how Washington would run the health care system from here on out.
While the HHS Secretary – in those
days, Kathleen Sebelius – would have the authority to determine exactly how to
implement Obamacare's rules, the Obama administration was (in theory) bound by
the statutory law passed by Congress.
Now, in reality, the Obama
administration was highly selective in enforcing the ACA as written.
Here are just some examples of ways
in which Obama simply ignored the ACA and decided to do what he thought
was best, regardless of the law:
The Obama administration decided not
to enforce the law's employer mandate until 2015, and then delayed its
enforcement a second time.
After millions of Americans
complained that their insurance plans had been canceled – contrary to Obama's
promise that "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan" – Obama
declined to enforce aspects of the law that required those plans to shut down –
until he was reelected.
The Obama administration decided –
unilaterally – to waive Obamacare's individual mandate, by granting a
"hardship exemption" to anyone for whom Obamacare's offerings were
The ACA forced insurers to offer
plans with reduced co-pays and deductibles for those with very low-incomes, but
didn't appropriate the cost-sharing subsidies needed to pay for them.
Facing a rebellion from insurers, who
were being forced to cover these individuals at a loss, the Obama
administration decided to spend the money anyway, even though they had no legal
authority to do so.
I could go on, but you get the point.
Last, but very important, Obamacare
divided its "customers" into two groups: the subsidized and the
others who couldn't afford the premiums!
The subsidized got a free ride, and
the others couldn't afford the ticket.
I saw this often in my circles.
On one hand, I saw people who would
praise the program because it got them the insurance they couldn't afford in
On the other hand, I met many more
people who simply could not afford the premiums and found the deductibles way
beyond their budgets.
As a friend with a wife and two kids
told me, "what's the point of paying $6,000 in annual premiums so I
get to a $ 15,000 deductible? I'd rather do nothing and pay the
As Mr. Roy points out, Obamacare did
all this damage through a total disregard for the rule of law, from
rewriting the law with executive orders and mandates plus paying money to the
insurance industry without the approval of Congress.
The bad news is that Obamacare has
messed up our health care system .
The good news is that Obamacare is
It was a flawed law from day one, and
even a President Hillary Clinton would have been forced to do a lot more than
Ed. ObamaCare never had the first thing to do with healthcare. The purpose of this massive assemblage of statutes was to assume complete control over the life of the American citizen. There can be no better way to control our actions than to claim that our very existence depends upon our willingness to submit to the necessary demands of the state. After all, Big Brother has our best interests at heart!
