  1. I would just like to remind everyone that in 2014, the election before the police report about Josh's assault of his sisters and the unnamed 5th victim came to light, Michelle Duggar fixed her thin, shriveled, fascist lips to record a campaign robocall saying that transgender women were scheming to get access to women's restrooms for the purpose of assaulting minors. She did this knowing this sickness was festering in her own family. Vaguely off-topic, I know. But also, not at all.

  2. I am sick. I cannot wrap my head around the fact that Jim Bob and Michelle put boundaries concerning Jill coming around, but hey, lets just leave Josh be around everyone! How dare they. How dare Anna stay with him and continue to produce more children. I hope this is the end of it all. The show, the attention on babies and weddings in the media, them being influencers, etc. I hope that mother fucker is convicted and locked the hell up.

  3. My late BFF David and I used to get multiple beef and cheddars and binge watch 90210. He died in his sleep recently. After fighting HIV successfully for 25 years, he could not find it in him to fight cancer. Some things call for a beef and cheddar with extra Arby’s sauce.

  5. FFS DO NOT NAME CP WEBSITES HERE. What is wrong with you? I redacted it, but if I see people naming places where people can go for this stuff I'll start throwing people into moderation. STOP IT!

  6. In all fairness, the sisters were brainwashed and gaslighted into believing that their abuse wasn’t abuse but a “curious little boy.” As much as I don’t care for Derrick, at least he helped Jill realize she needed (real) therapy and that wasn’t the case. Maybe now the other sisters will get actual help.

  7. Hunter Biden has no sex scandals and he is not a politician. Epstein was a big buddy of Donald Trump. And he was not an elected official. Clinton was 30 years ago and as a life long Democrats from generations of Democrats (it's actually the old party, not the GOP), I thought he was an ass and should have told the truth. He was wrong. But he was not: Matt Gaetz, child trafficker and elected official Donald Trump, serial molester and multi-accused rapist Roy Moore, pedophile and elected official David Vitter, diaper wearer and illegal prostitution customer and elec

  8. I get that if you identify as a Republican, you don’t want “Republicans don’t care about sexual assault” to be true, but that doesn’t make it not true. Since 2016, the GOP party line has been that sexual assault - even of children - is not disqualifying and barely warrants a mildly disapproving statement. If you don’t buy into that philosophy (and I sincerely hope no one here does), then perhaps it’s time to realize that the Republican Party as it used to exist no longer does. The Trumps, Gaetzs, Roy Moores, etc aren’t outliers and outcasts anymore.

  9. Josh is 33. The first offense that we know of occurred when he was 14. For nearly 20 years Jim Bob and Michelle have actively kept him from meaningful accountability and skilled help. This is a tragedy and a damn shame.

  11. Maybe the republicans on this site should take a look in the mirror and ask themselves why they support a party that hates and attacks women, minorities, and the LGBTQ community while supporting white male victim hood at every opportunity. Jfc. “Attacked”? Get over yourself.

  17. Wanted to add to the cheering up posts. This is my little cherub Dixie. She is three weeks old and we pick her up in another five weeks and I know she will be the light of my daughter’s life. I’m a first time (adult) dog Mum. I am more nervous about getting this dog and messing her up than I am worried about parenting my own kid. The puppy Mum guilt has already set in because I am away from home a minimum of 9 hours a weekday and where as I can send my child to subsidised childcare, it’s not really an option for my dog. I’m worried she won’t bond with us I’m worried she won’t train well.

  18. This is the only personal detail I'm comfortable offering right now, but when I was in a similar situation, the agents didn't give a fuck who was home. I was home alone, and my name was not on the warrant. At least ten dudes with guns drawn kicked down my door, screaming at me, and put me up against the wall to pat me down. I'm like 100 pounds and don't own any weapons, but they handcuffed me. I was wearing nothing but a camisole and short pajama shorts, and after they'd finished patting me down, they wouldn't even uncuff me to let me put on a sweatshirt. I remained handcuffed for over an hour

  19. And let’s not forget how they haven’t said a word about Madison Cawthorn who 150 of the people from his small Christian college said he was a sexual predator. And he admitted to grabbing a 17 year old and trying to force her to kiss him but claims that is normal behavior. Josh smiled because he is part of the party who heard a candidate brag about sexually assaulting women, it was downplayed as normal behavior and the people flocked to act like the man was a god. Josh is steeped in a political party where no one cared about Trump saying he was “allowed” to go see the contestants of beauty

  22. Wow. I hope Jeremy isn't taking his anger out on Jinger right now. And you know the Bates family is collectively shredding every document related to Medic Corps as we speak. I don't like Anna, but I seriously hope someone is staying with her tonight. This could send a person over the edge. [Side Note: My kids could not be more needy tonight (not serious needy, but like "Where's my shoes? Can you make popcorn? Tell [the other kid ] to share with me!") And 10 minutes ago I saw this for the first time, and told them they could build a fort in my bedroom, stay u

  25. Can we please stop feeling sorry for people who willingly enable this shit. She could have told her husband no, she could have told the court she wasn't willing to watch him. She yammered on about waiting to pray and preach at him or something. Seriously - if they aren't responsible for their actions than neither is Josh and we should all send them big baskets of muffins in a show of support.

  29. I say this realizing I might skew younger than a lot of other people here, but I'm getting real tired of Bill Clinton getting brought up any time we try to point out the GOP's problem with sexual abuse. Look, you won't hear any kind words about him from me. I am extremely disappointed that he wasn't tossed out by the part at the time, but you know what? I was seven years old when that happened. I am sick of being called a hypocrite for condemning republicans who are supporting predators like Trump, Moore, Kavanaugh, and Gaetz RIGHT NOW because democrats were on the wrong side over 20 years ago

  31. Oh, I’m so excited to finally share the story and pictures of my girl!! I’ve been waiting for one of these threads to pop up while I’m active. Meet Vrbnik (pronounced like VERB-neek, but do your best to swallow the e in verb and you’ll come close 😉). It’s Croatian, the name of the town nearest to where we found her - or she found us, is perhaps more accurate. She was a full-fledged rescue. While on a camping trip last June, Hubby and I were on a bike ride on a very hot day, and stopped for a moment (in literally the middle of nowhere, I might add) to confirm which way to go next. Sud

  32. @nelliebelle1197 Here is the article from Thriving Forward. Emily Elizabeth Anderson was one of the plaintiffs against Gothard. It looks like she was also on Called to Peace Ministry discussing the Duggars. Her blog is under spoiler where she explains why Anna won't leave smuggar. She also discusses ATI curriculum and why it is so harmful. https://www.facebook.com/ThrivingForwardBlog https://www.calledtopeace.org/

  35. Can you imagine how awkward this must be for the host family (though I have zero sympathy for the vampire lacount). Especially the women. And who knows how long he’ll be there. JB and Michelle must’ve been scrambling through their phone book to find a friend who has no minor children and is willing to take on their douchebag son. I’ll throw in a pic of kittens that are maybe mine. We moved recently and our new house came with a mama cat and kittens living behind our garage. The plan was to trap the kittens and find them homes and trap the mama and spay and release her and then later

  36. It isn't an attack to point out that Josh is part of a political party that recently embraced with open arms a man who bragged about getting away with sexual assault. A party that has collective shrugged over people like Madison Cawthorn. A party that hasn't even been too harsh with a guy currently being investigated for raping a child. A party that hasn't exactly embraced the Me Too movement. Josh is part of a political movement that doesn't seem to take sexual assault seriously as long as it is one of their own Stuff like this is discussed here. It is kind of what we do. The problem is

  37. There is a difference between a hand on the shoulder and rape - Trump and Kavanaugh have been accused of RAPE. Biden has been accused of being to friendly and touchy when he is attempting to connect with people - and he self corrected after Me Too. To compare these things is actually quite terrible and the fact you can do it unironically says a lot.

  38. She is a grown ass woman and doesn’t need to be treated as a child who can’t grasp the concept of child porn. I am sure investigators have spoken to her about the severity of these crimes. If she can’t figure out assaulting children sexually is unforgivable then she doesn’t need custody of her own children. The days of sticking her head in the sand so she can keep her reality tv lifestyle are over. No one better defend her standing by her man after this or come up with excuses for her if she does.

  39. they didn't just get a bad egg, they enabled a bad egg. He has continued to escalate his deviant sexual behaviors for decades with slaps on the wrist and no proper treatment. He has been given everything - a home, a business, a sweet and docile wife, 7 children, a TV show, a job in DC, etc. They got a bad egg and let him fester for years.

  41. This is just a personal milestone but I was discussing this with my mother yesterday and my mom is a deeply religious woman. She got sucked into a cult when she was 25 years old and didn't leave until she was 53 years old. She is still very much bound by her faith. I mentioned that Josh Duggar had gotten arrested for CP and she interrupted me to say that she's always hated that term because it puts all porn on the same level, when that's not the case. She said she didn't agree with porn at all but at least it's generally consenting adults participating in it. She said CP should really be calle

  43. I don't know why everybody thinks this. This being called a "close call" for a case like this is extremely unusual. Presumed innocence is a good thing in the legal system. The length of the hearing and the closeness of the call all point to the strength of the evidence the prosecution has provided. Getting bail/bond is normal because we've decided that it is not right to hold somebody for a crime they haven't been convicted of. It's frustrating here (but only because we feel we know these people better than the magistrate), but it's the right decision for the system overall. Edit:

  44. I’ve been here since the news broke. TBH, until last night when i became convinced that JoshGate 3 wasn’t going to follow JoshGate 1 and 2 in crashing the shit out of my beloved server, I was reading, but not posting because I was too busy obsessing on traffic. I’m proud of my little server that could right now. Thanks to the upgrade in ... February was it? It chugged along just fine at nearly double its former red line for people online.
