US Education Dept. ends Obama-era guidance on college sex crimes

Published

on

The U.S. Department of Education has withdrawn guidelines on how colleges should investigate sexual assault that were issued by Barack Obama’s administration and released new interim guidelines, according to an announcement on Friday.

“This interim guidance will help schools as they work to combat sexual misconduct and will treat all students fairly,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement. “Schools must continue to confront these horrific crimes and behaviors head-on. There will be no more sweeping them under the rug. But the process also must be fair and impartial, giving everyone more confidence in its outcomes.”

Bill Barr slammed for his ‘incredibly disturbing’ — and false — attack on secularism

Published

During a speech at Notre Dame’s law school this Friday, US Attorney General William Barr disparaged the rising tide of secularism in America, saying that a lack of religion is tied to societal ills like violence and drug abuse.

“Along with the wreckage of the family, we are seeing record levels of depression and mental illness, dispirited young people, soaring suicide rates, increasing numbers of angry and alienated young males, an increase in senseless violence and a deadly drug epidemic,” he continued.
