a non-predator
Geoffrey Rush awarded £1.6m in defamation case
Bernard Lagan, Sydney
May 23 2019, 12:00pm, The Times

The actor Geoffrey Rush has been awarded almost £1.6 million in a defamation case, a record in Australia, after he sued over reports that falsely accused him of sexually harassing a co-star.

The owner of Sydney’s Daily Telegraph newspaper is to pay the actor almost A$2 million (£1.1m) for lost earnings, on top of an A$850,000 payout, plus interest.

The award, recorded in Federal Court document, follows a series of reports in the newspaper that accused Mr Rush of “inappropriate behaviour” towards an actress who appeared alongside him in a Sydney stage of production of King Lear.

In a “world exclusive” the tabloid printed the allegations in November 2017 with a front-page picture of the Australian actor, headlined “King Leer”.

Mark Heller, his attorney, said during a press conference that his client has been very cooperative with police and expects to be fully exonerated.

Hideous Men- Donald Trump assaulted me in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room 23 years ago. But he’s not alone on the list of awful men in my life.

https://www.thecut.com/2019/06/donald-t ... s-men.html
After almost two years of drawing and redrawing my list, I’ve come to realize that, though my hideosity bar is high, my criteria are a little cockeyed. It is a gut call. I am like Justice Potter Stewart. I just know a hideous man when I see one. And I have seen plenty. For 26 years, I have been writing the “Ask E. Jean” column in Elle, and for 26 years, no matter what problems are driving women crazy — their careers, wardrobes, love affairs, children, orgasms, finances — there comes a line in almost every letter when the cause of the correspondent’s quagmire is revealed. And that cause is men.

Viz.: the man who thinks 30 seconds of foreplay is “enough,” the man who cheats on his wife, the man who passes women over for promotion, the man who steals his girlfriend’s credit cards, the man who keeps 19 guns in the basement, the man who tells his co-worker she “talks too much in meetings,” the man who won’t bathe, the man who beats his girlfriend’s dog, the man who takes his female colleagues’ ideas, the man who tries to kill his rich wife by putting poison in her shampoo. Every woman, whether consciously or not, has a catalogue of the hideous men she’s known.

As it turns out, a Hideous Man marks practically every stage of my life. And so, Reader, from this cavalcade of 21 assholes, I am selecting a few choice specimens. One or two may not be pleasant for you to read about, I apologize. But if we all just lean over and put our heads between our knees, the fainting feeling will pass. No one need be carried from the room.
About Trump-
I am astonished by what I’m about to write: I keep laughing. The next moment, still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me. It turns into a colossal struggle. I am wearing a pair of sturdy black patent-leather four-inch Barneys high heels, which puts my height around six-one, and I try to stomp his foot. I try to push him off with my one free hand — for some reason, I keep holding my purse with the other — and I finally get a knee up high enough to push him out and off and I turn, open the door, and run out of the dressing room.

Donald Trump is trying to gaslight us on E. Jean Carroll’s account of rape
The president’s response to the advice columnist’s accusation is to make us doubt our own eyes.

By Laura McGannlaura.mcgann@vox.com Jun 21, 2019, 8:22pm EDT

Donald Trump deployed half a dozen tactics in a press release on Friday that any abuser would recognize.

Trump’s goal was to get us to question our own eyes and discredit columnist E. Jean Carroll, who described an encounter with Trump in the 1990s that ended in rape.

Cosby's lawyers file 348-page appeal claiming unfair trial

Lawyers for Bill Cosby filed an appeal of his 2018 conviction on three counts of sexual assault on Tuesday, arguing that the comedian faced an unfair trial.

Law and Crime reported Tuesday that the 348-page appeal filed by Cosby's attorneys argued that Cosby's trial was tainted by the testimony of other women who accused him of sexual assault but were not related to the three charges on which he was convicted last year.

Cosby was convicted in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former employee with Temple University where Cosby had received an honorary degree that has since been rescinded.

He is behind bars after being sentence to three to 10 years in state prison by a judge last September.

The 81-year-old former star of "The Cosby Show" tweeted Tuesday that it was a "beautiful day" and thanked his "millions of supporters," while including a picture of his attorney wheeling stacks of boxes containing his appeal into the courthouse.

This is a beautiful day and it’s delicious. You’re seeing it as it was described to me by Mrs. Cosby — a photo showing the “Wheels Of Justice” delivering my appeal to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. Thank you to my millions of supporters (the freedom fighters)...

Bill Cosby ✔ @BillCosby
Thank you to my lawyers; thank you Sharp Shooter (Andrew); thank you to my family; and thank you to my Beautiful Bride, Mrs. Cosby... for these strong words, “America will be great when it fulfills the last four words of the revered Pledge of Allegiance....."and justice for all.”

"Justice for all" means justice for Cosby's many victims.

Keep him locked up and throw away the key.
