70-year-old woman tenderizes husband’s head after catching him looking at porn

Published

on

The first validation of Utah’s declaration that  pornography is a public health crisis came from an unlikely source when a 70-year-old woman in Oswaldtwistle, England beat her husband with a metal meat tenderizer after she caught him looking at porn, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Lynda Holmes claimed that she “saw red” after catching her 78-year old husband, Gordon Holmes, with adult porn. “He hasn’t touched me for ten years,” she told police, “and now he’s watching porn? How dare he? How do I go about getting ten years of my life back?” The couple were about to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary (50 years) when the attack took place March 16, 2016.

“It should be murder. I want ten years of my life back. I saw red mist,” she said. Mrs. Holmes pled guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm on her husband. Yesterday, the court sentenced her to ten months in jail, which has been suspended for eighteen months.

Prosecutor Stephen Parker explained to the court that “There had been a breakdown some considerable time ago in their sexual relationship that had led to tension between them…” Parker said that Holmes had caught her husband with the pornographic material several days prior to the attack, but when she thought he was trying to destroy the evidence, that’s when she went after him with a hammer.

Mr. Holmes suffered injuries to his head, ear, and right hand, and escaped by running out into the street and telling his neighbors that his wife had “gone mad.” He then told neighbors that he didn’t want to get the police involved. Defense counsel Rachel Woods said that the attack was totally out of character for her client.

Mr. Holmes told the police that he felt partially responsible for his wife’s assault on him. He said that it was his “selfishness” that drove his wife to it, namely, his “playing in a band, playing golf and spending considerable time away from home and not supporting his wife.”

While Utah officials emphasized that pornography hurts the developing brains of children in its declaration of the public health threat posed by smut, BYU professor Brian Willoughby told the Deseret News that the use of pornography has a negative impact on “relationship well-being and detrimental expectations about sex.”

There is no word on whether the Holmes have reconciled.

BUSTED: CNN’s panel of women defending Trump’s racism were literally the ‘Trumpettes’

Published

on

CNN aired a panel that featured “Republican women” defending President Trump’s racist tweets, but failed to mention that they were actually part of a pro-Trump group whose members the network had interviewed in the past.

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
