All Members Resign From White House Arts Committee in Protest Over President Trump’s Charlottesville Response

“But it is our role as commissioners on the PCAH to do so. Members typically come from the arts and entertainment community. “Speaking truth to power is never easy, Mr. Kal Penn speaks to the audience at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina, on September 4, 2012 on the first day of the Democratic National Convention. Some Obama-era members quit when Trump was elected last year. The remaining 16 members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities resigned in protest on Friday, capping off a dramatic week that included a stream of CEO resignations from two of President Trump’s business councils. Politicians, educators, lawyers and business leaders round out the committee. “Reproach and censure in the strongest possible terms are necessary following your support of the hate groups and terrorists who killed and injured fellow Americans in Charlottesville,” the members wrote in the letter.

Actor Kal Penn on Friday tweeted an official resignation letter that read as a sharp rebuke of the President’s actions in the wake of the attack in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend that led to three deaths and dozens of injuries. We cannot sit idly by, the way that your West Wing advisors have, without speaking out against your words and actions.”
The PCAH was created under President Ronald Reagan in 1982 with the purpose of advising the White House on issues around arts and humanities, according to its website. Art is about inclusion.”
This committee’s decision on Friday bookends a week that started with the President fighting backlash over his remarks on the Charlottesville attack. “The false equivalencies you push cannot stand. First Lady Melania Trump serves as the committee’s honorary chairwoman. The members also used the letter to slam Trump for policies they say threaten to diminish civil rights, damage the environment, cut funding to arts and risk the overall safety of the country. Hollywood and Broadway appear to be taking a page from Wall Street’s playbook. Update:All members have now resigned. The Administration’s refusal to quickly and unequivocally condemn the cancer of hatred only further emboldens those who wish America ill. President,” the letter read. A rush of CEOs quit one of two business councils in the wake, prompting President Trump to disband both on Wednesday. The remaining members are holdovers from the Obama-era who agreed to stay on until Trump finds their replacements, according to sources who spoke to The Washington Post.

‘#War,’ Breitbart Editor Tweets After Bannon Ousted From Trump Administration

“I’m not sure exactly when he’s out officially or if he’s coming back,” Marlow wrote. “He can be helpful to POTUS on the outside. He has already held the most powerful job he will ever have — unless, of course, his new job is to destroy Trump from the outside.”
In messages from the company’s internal Slack channels obtained by CNNMoney, Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow instructed his staff to also “round up hysterical reactions and gloating” by the mainstream media and Hollywood. “It will be Bannon the barbarian,” the person said. It’s most likely the site will not — for now at least — directly attack the President, but will focus its fire on people in Trump’s circle who had clashed with Bannon, or who are viewed as Democrats or “globalists.”
A senior administration official told CNNMoney that Bannon will indeed fight for nationalism and populism on the from outside the White House. But Marlow told his staff he was in the dark on that particular matter. Others may need to duck,” the person said. “He’s not going to go out peacefully.”
Following news of Bannon’s exit, Breitbart started to prepare stories critical of people in the Trump White House, a person at the website told CNN. Ben Shapiro, a former editor at Breitbart who has been critical of Bannon and the website since he left, wrote in a column, “Bannon is deeply vengeful, and supremely ambitious. Matthew Boyle, the website’s Washington editor, who has been close with Bannon, was told to “start putting together a narrative story.”
There has been speculation that Bannon will return to Breitbart after parting ways with the White House. Breitbart had been almost unfailingly supportive of President Trump, first during his campaign and then during his presidency. He gave Breitbart employees a “friendly reminder” that “tweeting tends to do more harm than good.”
A spokesman for Breitbart declined to comment. One Breitbart headline drew a comparison between Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former California governor, who is not viewed positively among the conservative base. A person who recently spoke with Bannon told CNNMoney that the now-former White House chief strategist will not stay quiet on the sidelines. Joel Pollak, a senior editor-at-large at Breitbart, tweeted “#WAR,” a reference to the site’s early days and the mission statement of its founder, Andrew Breitbart. 37.090240

Child Rape Victim Unknowingly Gives Birth After Family’s Plea for Abortion Rejected by Court

Denied an abortion
Under India’s Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, the country doesn’t allow abortion after more than 20 weeks of pregnancy, unless they receive permission from the courts. In May, the high court allowed a 10-year-old from the northern state of Haryana who had been raped to abort her fetus at nearly 21 weeks into the pregnancy. The family, did not approach the authorities about the girl’s pregnancy until the 26th or 27th week, said Alakh Alok Srivastava, a lawyer who represented the girl’s family, to CNN in a previous interview. Despite attempts by the government to increase penalties for sexual assault, the number of reported rapes rose by 50% between 2011 and 2016. Indira Jaising, a senior lawyer for India’s Supreme Court and a leading voice on sexual assault and domestic violence, told CNN in July that the case was indicative of the types of problems faced by people who belong to the “poorest section of the society and the remotest part of India.”
“It is a class issue, it is an issue of access to medical services,” she said. “[The] first verdict the Supreme Court made was that the pregnancy cannot be terminated at this stage based on the opinions of the medical board,” Srivastava said. The parents of the 10-year old girl, are now looking for ways to put the baby up for adoption as they’re worried about the stigma. Both the girl and her baby are in stable condition, according to Dasari Harish, one of the doctors caring for the girl. Indian students of Saint Joseph Degree college participate during an anti-rape protest in Hyderabad on September 13, 2013. Her parents told her that she needed surgery for a kidney stone problem, and refused to allow medical professionals to tell their child the truth, according to Harish. The 10-year old delivered a baby girl via Caesarian section at the Government Medical College and Hospital in Chandigarh, a city in North India. The girl was forced to have the baby after India’s Supreme Court rejected the family’s plea for an abortion three weeks ago, based on the opinions of eight doctors and an examination of the girl. In this particular case, it was the girl’s uncle, who had allegedly raped her over a period of six to seven months. (Credit: NOAH SEELAM/AFP/Getty Images)

Grim record
India continues to grapple with the issue of sexual assault following the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape case — a particularly brutal incident that resulted in protests and a renewed debate around the status of women in the nation. As is the case with the vast majority of reported rapes in India, the rapist was known to the victim. “The father was saying he wasn’t willing to carry the newborn baby, not even for a minute,” said Srivastava. India has a grim record of sexual assaults on minors, with 20,000 cases of rape or sexual assaults reported in 2015, according to government data reported by AFP. “It is an issue of access to proper information about how to deal with this situation.
