My guess would be that the Chemical Weapons came from Iraq — from Saddam Hussein.

Re: I would remove myself from an uncomfortable situation, without suing anyone.
So, she should lose her job (by quitting to “remove herself from the uncomfortable situation”) because she is getting hit on?
I sure would want my daughters to have to do that — NOT!

Speaking of “mistakes”, Ann . . . how about the GOP nominating Trump for president?
That has GOT to be the #1 mistake of the year.
Yup pretty much any of the 16 other GOP candidates would be doing better against Hillary
@Chuck: YEP...Nailed it, sir!

I'm seeing a general theme in these comment sections. The Trump-Humpers are not as enthusiastic, and in your face, as they used to be. Why? WE ALL KNOW WHY. Everything we said this guy would do after the primary(move even further to the Left, like his whole life), he is doing. And now, his supporters have to go through the AA stages, after getting over denial.
We don't expect apologies(although they'd go a long way), we expect you guys to LEARN FROM THIS. What Trump has done, and is doing, is how dictators go elected. You can now either pull the rip cord, or smack face first into the ground of remorse. Doesn't matter to me, my soul is clean from not believing his fools gold the whole time. Like many here. That's what happens when you hold onto something tangible, like principles, things tested over time and human behavior.
Next time somebody screams "Wall", see if he hired illegals to build his in Manhattan.
Ann Coulter's apology tour, 2017.
Coming to a town near you.
I remember watching Ann (Skeletor) Coulter on some stupid show on Fox. She said then that she was a one issue voter this coming election. The issue being immigration and that is why she was supporting Trump. How is that working out for you now Ann? You must feel stupid (you should because you are) for supporting Trump when you could have supported the one guy who has a record of keeping his word and had just as strong of a position on immigration as Trump.

Every group (religious or ethnic) is happy about “their kind” immigrating to America
that is a bit of a shocker.
maybe that $2 per issue is paying off?

Agreed, usfreeman. 100 percent.
Just wanted to note an important fact that is often overlooked.

Re: “You can’t prove a negative.”
True — and slander/libel/defamation law takes that into consideration.
A slanderer — upon being accused of slander in conversation — will typically retort with “truth is a defense!” Well, truth IS a defense, but it is an “affirmative” defense. That means that a defendant in a slander suit has to assert “truth” in the answer to the complaint AND that the defendant has THE BURDEN OF PROOF as to truthfulness.
RE: “Trump’s war on speech”
That war on speech is all talk.
Remember when Trump was going to sue Bill Maher for the contract violation (and where did that go?)
How about Trump’s suit against Cruz for “lying”?
Trump talks a big game — shame on those who believe him with his record.

Re: “I remember reading about this case. The captor was a devout Mormon.”
Huh? If by “was”, you have to mean something like like “in his youth.”
When Mitchell abducted Smart he had been out of the LDS church for a very long time and was stridently and vocally opposed to it.

Re: “Why does anyone even waste time trying to keep up or make sense of any of this”
Well . . . SOME of the “anyones” are those whose stock in trade is offence.
So, for them, it is their occupation. Now, as to why anyone else goes along with it — now THAT is the big question.

Hillary gets donations from “pay to play” types.
Trump gets money from the sort of folks who got degrees from “Trump University”

Watch for Obama to call for banning churches:
“If it would just save ONE life!”
This is obviously an attack by Alex Jones, Illuminati and the Jewish held World Bank, all fighting against Glenn Beck and Buckaroo Banzai, and fighting for the Free Airwaves of the 8th Dimension..............
Preacher: "God, if you are truly out there, give me a...huh...what was that?"
This is proof that we need common sense “Church” control? I mean to limit assault churches and if it saves just one child!!!!
Prayers for strength, comfort and peace for the family.
There is not much difference between porn and drugs
They can both be used to control the mind
Those who like to rule and control us would like to make porn and drugs openly available
Now do you understand why the WAR ON DRUGS can never be won by the govt?
Because they don't want to win
I can’t imagine the courage it takes to advocate for what she does with what she went through. I’m not sure I have it. Where’s her accolades? Where’s NOW? Where’s Time with woman of the year?
I know how much courage it takes to pretend to be something you are not. I use more courage than that to run a brush around my toilet every week or so.
Wow, it’s great to see people taking a stand to keep others from harming themselves and others. Not only can porn, drugs, and alcohol have an ill effect on sociality and brain chemistry so does sugar and soft drinks by causing obesity.
Let’s continue to use the government to legislate morality and save people from themselves. Here is someone that is setting a great example that it seems most of you Gladys Kravits types may be interested in joining to help people protect them from themselves.

This girl had a truly horrible experience, but if you replace "pornography" with "guns", this sounds like a typical gun control argument
Anyone that does anything thing like this to a Child, should be put to Death………….
As a Libertarian I strongly disagree with banning pornography. Nevertheless, I feel for this young lady, and think the couple that kidnapped her and raped her should have faced the death penalty for what they did.
The democrats are not going to like her talking like this.
There is an epidemic of this crap online. Look at the stats on the ages of children when they are exposed to it via pop ups or deceptively worded sites - it will scare you if you are a parent. Btw, Hillary wants to use taxpayer dollars to give internet access to millions more kids - thereby increasing those stats.
Posters arguing "freedom of speech" either don't have kids, or don't care that kids are getting seriously affected by this stuff. The Internet is awash in unrestricted free porn. Decency dictates we use technology to find a way to clean up the web, and keep pornography away from young eyes.
symptom vs causality
Both Brian David Mitchell and his wife should have been executed for what they did to this beautiful girl…
Things will change when politicians kids are getting Raped and Abused
Pornography inflames the imaginations and the carnal lusts of men, binding them as slaves to their own “deceitful lusts” (Ephesians 4:22). Movies, television, billboards, modern advertising will tap into these fleshly and impure imaginings for the purpose of making a buck off the public at large, using even subliminal techniques to entice people to spend their money, under the false pretext that people will be healthier, wealthier and happy for doing so. But lust can only bring death to an individual (Romans 8:13). The apostle Peter says that “…they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness” (II Peter 2:18), and that “these fleshly lusts…war against the soul” (II Peter 2:11); so these lusts will destroy your mind, conscience and will. Examples of such slaves to sin are Hollywood “stars,” rock “stars” and politicians who desire more and more, and revel in wantoness; but they are actually bound to their own wicked lusts. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can completely free a person of such delusional and evil desires:
“And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” (Galatians 5:24-25)
LIBERTARIANS? I've read through hundreds of comments here and am finding a common theme by self-proclaimed libertarians. Folks, Libertarians are about limited govt., not zero govt.! Confusing this with anarchy?
I would argue that blocking porn falls within sensible limited govt. responsibility. Yet I am anti-govt. regulation of the internet... for the most part. Keep reading...
Some have said I can choose to filter and secure my own house for my kids. Yes, I have internet filters, cell data blocked, etc. BUT... my kids don't exist solely in the confines of my own house. Sometimes (when not on minecraft) they venture outside. This is where govt. plays a role.
To argue I can sufficiently protect my family from porn by my own home network filters is like saying I can sufficiently protect them from a drunk driver on I-5 by simply choosing not to buy beer and put it in my fridge. Absolutely ridiculous. Govt. plays a roll here... and btw, we ALREADY have laws that block access to porn! So I'm not asking for MORE laws, I would just like existing laws to be enforced.
For 50 years, porn has been blocked from children - they cannot venture into an adult store, or strip club. But the TECHNOLOGY has changed, and the laws have not kept up or been applied here. Furthermore, laws block porn (and even swearing - hint, 1st amendment) on public TV. Why can't we block it on the internet? "Because, internet", and "because, 1st amendment" is not a sufficient argument.
Islam is NOT an Abrahamic religion. Ishmael was the illegitimate son of Abraham but he did not share the Jewish faith of his father.
She gives an inspiring talk here:
She is a positive force for good. I am very sad this happened to her, but she is using her wisdom to uplift and teach others. I was inspired by the lesson she shares in the talk.
