"...official reassurances about this and other dangers have become worthless." Especially when they are followed by references to "the current crisis."

"Attorney General Eric Holder has picked the perfect time to resign, in terms of his own self-interest." And by the time his lecture circuit is over, at least one Supreme Court slot will have opened.
I agree. The authorities are much better at crime investigation than Leftist bureaucrats with an ideological-driven agenda. With the exception of such academic offenses as plagiarism, cheating, etc., the campus should be not be governed by an unconstitutional separate legal code IMHO.
This is tantamount to a bill of attainder against males. In an employer required lecture on sexual harassment, I asked what management did with those who filed false charges. "Nothing, because invariably we find the victim felt wronged in some way," was the answer. What this means is that guilt or innocence of the accused is determined, not by the reasonable person, but by the accuser, who is probably not all that reasonable. Making the legal process the wholly subjective expression of such a mind ends the possibility of people agreeing about anything and converts the objectivity of the law into an expression of individual beliefs. And that means the end of the rule of law.
8. The accused is not permitted to confront his accuser.
I think the purpose for these regulations and the lowering of proof is to create a bill of attainder against men. Think about it.

“It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged.” – G.K. Chesterton, 1921
My English professor said he'd give anyone an "A" for the class if they could draw a map of the area where the events took place in the novel we were reading. This was impossible because there were so many contradictions in the various statements throughout the book describing the geography of the locale. Like the descriptions of the geography, all the statements used by pro-abortion folks cannot be reconciled with each other.

"Another president chosen for demographic representation ... and further insulated from criticism and from reality, is the last thing we need." No, the last thing we need is a president chosen for his eloquent oratory skills. “Many people may have voted for Barack Obama in 2008 because of his charisma. But anyone familiar with the disastrous track record of charismatic political leaders around the world in the 20th century should have run for the hills when they encountered a politician with charisma.” – Thomas Sowell
