Disney Executive Thomas Schumacher Accused Of 'Decades' Of Sexual Misconduct Against Men

Following accusations of sexual misconduct against famed animator John Lasseter, another Disney executive has been accused of "decades" of sexual misconduct.

The Wall Street Journal reports that a number of Disney representatives, including employees, say they witnessed executive Thomas Schumacher, an openly gay man, making sexually explicit remarks to male employees in incidents going all the way back to the 1990s. He also, allegedly, spoke about the “sexual prowess of black men” and “has continued to use sexual language in the past two or three years.”

"Another side of his success as a creative executive has been a harsh demeanor and tendency to cross the boundaries of appropriate workplace behavior, people who have worked with him said," reports The Wall Street Journal. "Mr. Schumacher has offended numerous employees over the years with explicit language and behavior, including comments about subordinates’ sexual attractiveness, discussions about pornography and walking through the office in a bathrobe while boasting he had nothing on underneath, according to people who said they witnessed the episodes."

A close friend of Schumacher told the WSJ that Schumacher denies the accusations made against him, saying that Schumacher “at times acknowledged using inappropriate language, expressed regret, and committed to being more mindful and adhering to company policies going forward."

According to one former Disney employee, Bruce Williams, Disney knew of Schumacher's behavior back in 1994.

“We’ve spoken to Tom and he apologizes,” Williams, now 60, said HR told him at the time, “this time I think he’s heard us.”

WSJ reports that a Disney spokesperson claims the company has no record of Williams' complaint. WSJ corroborated his claims with five former Disney employees.

Jane Buchanan, another former employee, claims that when she brought her bi-racial son to the office, Schumacher “made jokes about the sexual prowess of black men." Buchanan signed a non-disclosure agreement when...


RALEIGH, NC (WRAL) – A Raleigh man charged with breaking into a home and sexually assaulting a child was previously deported as a result of similar charges, officials said Thursday.

Oscar Paez Uribe, 39, of 4623 Vendue Range Drive, is charged with breaking and entering with the intent to terrorize and injure, indecent liberties with a child and first-degree kidnapping.

According to an arrest warrant, Uribe restrained and sexually assaulted the victim at a home on Buffaloe Road n Feb. 17.

Authorities said Uribe was charged with statutory rape and statutory sex offense in Texas on in February 2007 and was immediately deported.

He returned to the country under the alias of Oscar Paez Uribe, and authorities were able to link the two crimes using fingerprints.

Uribe was being held at the Wake County jail under an Immigration and...

Conservative Nonprofit PragerU Is Suing Google For Discrimination

  • Digital media organization PragerU is suing Google
  • The conservative nonprofit alleges YouTube restricted and demonetized 50 videos
  • “Google/YouTube … deemed them inappropriate for younger audiences,” a PragerU employee said

Prager University (PragerU), a conservative nonprofit that creates educational videos, is suing Google for allegedly discriminating against the digital media organization for its fairly moderate ideological slant.

Specifically, PragerU is accusing YouTube, which is owned by Google parent company Alphabet, of restricting or “demonetizing” videos even though they all appear to be innocuous and compliant with the platform’s rules.

PragerU’s videos include: former and current professors and scholars from Stanford, Harvard, and Yale, like Alan Dershowitz; prominent athletes, like Cobi Jones; popular celebrities like Mike Rowe; and influential figures like Steve Forbes. The majority of the people featured — sans political commentator Dinesh D’Souza — are not usually considered exceptionally controversial. Neither are a lot of the topics, some of which are likely studied in classrooms across the country.

Topics include “Is The Death Penalty Moral” and “The Progressive Income Tax.”

“If you’ve seen any of our videos, they’re very educational, and are very appropriate for ‘young viewers,'” said Craig Strazzeri, chief marketing officer for PragerU, addressing accusations from Google.

YouTube’s help page clarifies that videos containing certain “mature content” will be blocked for users who...

NRA's Dana Loesch: Liberals 'Call Trump a Tyrant’ But Want Him to Confiscate Our Firearms – ‘Figure That One Out!'

In her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Thursday, conservative author, radio host, and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch noted that in many criminal incidents, including the horrific school shooting in Parkland, Fla., "the government has proven that they cannot keep you safe."

Ironically, she added, the same people who "call Trump a tyrant " also want to confiscate our firearms. Try to figure that one out!"

“I want to make this super obvious point," said Loesch. "The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe, and yet some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall [on CNN] last night -- they cheered the confiscation of firearms, and it was 5,000 people."

"I had to have a security detail to get out," she said. "I wouldn’t have been able to exit that if I did not have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming ‘burn her.’ I came there to talk solutions and I am going to continue to talk solutions as the NRA’s been doing since...

Report: Four of Sheriff Scott Israel’s Deputies Waited Outside Douglas High During School Shooting

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring.

On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place.

Now CNN reports that the Coral Springs police officers claim three other Broward County deputies were outside the school but failed to go inside as well. They quote “Coral Springs sources” who said the three “deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles” when Coral Springs officers arrived. They said “not one of [the deputies] had gone into the school.”

The sources indicate other Broward County deputies arrived on scene, and two of those new arrivals joined with Coral Springs officers and entered the building.

The sources said, “Coral Springs police were stunned and upset that the four original Broward County Sheriff’s deputies who were first on the scene did not appear to join them as they entered the school.”

Coral Springs Police Department public information officer Sgt. Carla Kmiotek would not comment on what Broward County deputies did or did not do. Rather, “The Coral Springs Police Department will speak on behalf of our officers and their response in that incident,” she said. “We will not speak on...

Mexican Gun Control Ensures Cartels Outgun the Good Guys

2017 may have been the worst year for homicide in Mexico since the government began keeping track in the 1990s.

It's a safe bet that the homicide rate isn't coming anywhere near what it was in the years surrounding the revolution 100 years ago. But it may be the worst rate in several decades.

German news site DW reports:
The Interior Ministry said authorities across Mexico opened 29,168 murder cases, saying that it put the country's homicide rate at 20.5 per 100,000 inhabitants.

The highest figure ever recorded in Mexico before last year was in 2011, during the peak of the Mexican government's war on drugs. That year, authorities recorded 22,409 homicides.

Unfortunately, some observers think the Mexican state is fudging the numbers:

However, experts have cast doubt on the latest figures, saying the homicide rate is likely much higher.

Mexican security analysts Alejandro Hope told AP news agency that the figure is based on the number of murder investigations opened last year, not the number of victims.

Hope added that it also doesn't take into account that a killing may result in more than one victim. He placed the homicide rate closer to 24 per 100,000 inhabitants.
According to the official stats in recent years, the homicide rate in Mexico hit 22.6 per 100,000 in 2011, and then declined after that. If critics are right, and the current rate is near 24 per 100,000, that would be a new peak.1

By comparison, the homicide rate in the United States was 5.3 per 100,000 in 2016 (the most recent data available) ranging from 1.3 per 100,000 in New Hampshire to 11 per 100,000 in Louisiana.

Homicide rates vary far more wildly in Mexico, with rates ranging from...

Loesch Slams Sheriff Israel For Hiding His Deputy's Inaction From Town Hall: You 'Said NOTHING'

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch called out Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel on Thursday for hiding the fact that he knew one of his deputies refused to act to protect students from the Parkland school shooter.

Israel admitted Thursday that Deputy Officer Scot Peterson was caught on surveillance video doing "nothing" for four minutes as kids were being massacred.

As a reminder, Israel led a lynch mob against Loesch and said police needed even "more power" than they already have to keep people safe -- even though they failed on all fronts despite having more than enough information and legal authority to act.

As the Miami Herald reported Thursday:
In November, a tipster called BSO to say Cruz “could be a school shooter in the making” but deputies did not write up a report on that warning. It came just weeks after a relative called urging BSO to seize his weapons. Two years ago, according to a newly released timeline of interactions with Cruz’s family, a deputy investigated a report that Cruz “planned to shoot up the school” — intelligence that was forwarded to the school’s resource officer, with no apparent result.

Sheriff Israel used the Broward County Sheriff's Office's Twitter account as his own personal propaganda outlet to send out this gem on Wednesday after the town hall:

Loesch responded:
You didn’t stand up for them when they repeatedly reported that this murderer was threatening them in messages that violated FL law, his parents reported he “held a gun to others’ heads;” 39 visits and 2 FBI reports and NOTHING. It’s literally your job. Not mine. https://twitter.com/browardsheriff/status/966515820481347584 

Additionally, @browardsheriff sat on that stage with me last night fully aware that his deputy had been outside and armed while this madman had four minutes to massacre — and said NOTHING.

This is just the latest example of government failure and it is why we fight for the rights of law abiding people to protect their children the same way we protect our politicians and our celebrities.

I also want to thank the honorable and upstanding Broward County Sheriff’s deputies I met last night, some of whom are NRA members, who exemplify the very best we’ve come to expect and love about LEOs.

This disgusting propaganda stunt is blowing up in their faces.
