World Turkey Israel Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that Israel’s controversial “nation-state” law is evidence that the state is the world’s most fascist and racist country, adding that the spirit of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler had reemerged among the Israeli ministers who voted for the new legislation, Reuters has reported. Erdogan, a nationalist, populist, and increasingly authoritarian leader is currently overseeing an extensive power grab, voiding the position of prime-minister and giving himself extensive new powers.

By Washington Post PUBLISHED: July 24, 2018 at 7:31 am | UPDATED: July 24, 2018 at 7:40 am By Matt Zapotosky | The Washington Post WASHINGTON – Alex Kozinski had largely retreated from public life since allegations of sexual misconduct prompted him to retire as a federal appeals court judge last year.

Peyton Manning resurfaced in a lawsuit filed last week. Six unidentified women are suing his alma mater, The University of Tennessee, for the way it handled (or didn’t handle) claims of sexual assaults by student-athletes. None of the plaintiffs were alleged victims of Manning, but their suit did mention a 1996 incident when he was accused of rubbing his bare genitals and butt on a trainer, Jamie Ann Naughright.That claim has gained new traction, according to a Monday report by Good Morning America. All in all, the women say UT acted with “deliberate indifference in its response to incidents of sexual assault.” In their suit, they mention almost a dozen examples of student-athletes acting out of bounds, which the University allegedly downplayed.“Even if it’s 20 years old, even if he was in college, I still think it resonates in large part because of the image he has created for himself,” Christine Brennan, USA Today columnist, told Good Morning … [Read more...] about Peyton Manning Sexual Assault Claims Reemerge in New Suit
