Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists known as "antifa" had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous, so much so that the Department of Homeland Security formally classified their activities as "domestic terrorist violence," according to interviews and confidential law enforcement documents obtained by POLITICO.

For nearly 40 years ExxonMobil publicly raised doubt about the dangers of climate change even as scientists and execs inside the oil giant acknowledged the growing threat internally, according to a Harvard University study.

"We conclude that ExxonMobil misled the public," the researchers wrote in the peer-reviewed studythat was published on Wednesday.

The Harvard study could add to the controversy and legal scrutiny surrounding Exxon's (XOM)handling of climate change.

Based upon a few things you've revealed about yourself, I am guessing your are in your mid-30's.
If I am correct, you didn't live through the Clinton stuff as an adult.
Obviously you can read, but there is a difference between reading history and living it - it's why first-person testimony is so valuable in law, reporting, historical accounts, etc.

I just turned 35 and was WELL aware of everything going on as related to Billy Boy Clinton. From his first election (my neighbors threw election parties for the Dems every 2 years) to his reelection and the craziness that followed.

Do NOT discount someone's opinion simply because he/she was younger than 18 when an incident took place. Although Clinton's accusers were -------- in my house and my neighbor's house, that doesn't mean I wasn't capable of seeing it for what it was: Potential deviousness on part of a campaigning POTUS and then on part of an elected POTUS. Turns out it was my own parents' --------- (can someone offer a better synonym?) of the allegations that made me think there was a ring of truth to them. So goes being the only-child, rebel of the family, right? Just like my parents' religion, I eschewed their political beliefs solely on the grounds that they were theirs. Maybe some folks were unable to do similar, but you shouldn't ------ (see?! Can someone assist me here? I'm three IPAs deep already) an opinion simply because they weren't considered an adult when said events took place.

And for the record, I've always considered Clowny to be older than me just by his opinionated, articulated perspective. That may expose something about me, or maybe something more about him. Either way, his opinion matters just as much as mine, or yours, JEFFJ.

I like Allred's demand for a congressional hearing on the matter. Get the women to testify under oath and get Moore to testify under oath.

I don't think these women would have ANY problem testifying against their predator. They clearly didn't mind risking their personal lives in coming out with accusations against him, which doesn't carry as much risk as testifying, but is DEFINITELY risky.

9 of them now?

And Moore is right, it is VERY interesting timing. These woman are riding the same wave Terry Cruise is on with the timing of his accusation: it's a sign of the times and these women feared Moore, being the molester he's accused of being, having even more influence and power than he already has.

So yes, timing is a BIG part of this and it has mostly to do with making sure a pedophile does not gain congressional power. The rest of it is explained by the tidal wave of women standing up not just for themselves, but for all the other victims who did not feel powerful enough to come forward, to speak their truth.

If Terry Cruise can be shamed and intimidated into silence, there's no reason to believe all these women (including the 9 Moore accusers) of also having similar feelings. Timing is an issue here, but it's not the issue Moore would like you to believe it is.

It is in fact POSSIBLE that 9 women came forward with lies just to undermine Republican senate seat. That is indeed possible. However, it is HARDLY probable! Which is why so many Moore apologists are eager to perceive and voice parallels between the Moore case and the Duke Lacrosse case. Too bad those folks struggle with arithmetic; they may have had an opportunity to save that senate seat for a Republican. Now? It's not looking to good for Moore or the Republicans at the WORST time possible with tax reform on the table.
