Michael Steele didn’t hold back … he blamed President Trump for forcing the RNC’s hand to resume funding to what Steele calls a pedophile’s campaign for U.S. Senate. We got the former RNC chief on Capitol Hill Friday and asked…
Anthony Weiner will probably be viewed as a pedophile and therefore a major target for violence by other inmates … and THAT’S why he wants to avoid serving time in a hardcore Brooklyn prison. Weiner’s lawyer damn near begged the judge NOT to…
Last week, we reported on the news that Josh and Anna Duggar have welcomed their fifth child, a boy named Mason.
The news that a healthy baby has entered the world is typically met with universal congratulatory sentiments, and certainly no one wishes any harm upon the mother or child.
But feelings toward the father are a bit more complex …
As you’re probably aware, Josh molested five young women, four of whom were his sisters, while he was still in his teens.
His family has built a wildly lucrative media empire by projecting an image of wholesomeness and unflappable piety, so naturally, the Duggars have done everything in their power to put Josh’s sex scandal behind them.
Incredibly, following the cancelation of their reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, the Duggars were given a second shot television at stardom on the same network.
But while the narrative pitched by the Duggars and TLC is one of redemption, many former fans have not been so quick to forgive Josh’s horrendous transgressions.
Part of the problem, of course, is that Josh was never punished for his crimes, as his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, helped him to avoid prosecution.
That means there’s been no real effort toward rehabilitation.
And that in turn means that the possibility of Josh repeating his past behaviors remains disturbingly high.
As a result of this troubling scenario, fans have flooded the Duggars’ official Facebook page with comments condemning Josh and urging his family to vigilantly protect the children who are under his care:
“I pray that God blesses everyone but it should be illegal for an admitted child molester to procreate and create children,” wrote one follower.
“Josh admitted to molesting 4 different sisters so it did not happen just once; it happened multiple times. Any woman that would have children with an admitted child molester and pedophile I would have to recommend an intensive psychological examination.”
Another detractor addresses the fact that Josh went to rehab for sex addiction after it was revealed that he used an Ashley Madison account to try and cheat on Anna.
A mother of four, the commenter points out that a few months in an un-accredited, faith-based rehabilitation facility of his own choosing is hardly a guarantee that Josh won’t subject his children to the same abuse suffered by his sisters.
“People say Josh went to rehab and I will be honest here,” the follower wrote. “I have 4 children. If my son molested his siblings I don’t care what therapy he received I would never trust him again.”
“My kids mental and physical well-being comes first. Once you decide to be a child molester and pedophile I never want to see you again. I was molested as a child so I know the severe damage it does.”
Since Josh was never charged with a crime, there’s no action that concerned parties can take from a legal perspective.
The best any of us can do is hope that Josh’s family will heed the call to keep a close watch on Josh’s wife and children and report anything even remotely suspicious to the proper authorities.
Perhaps there’s some comfort to be taken in the fact that the Duggars live their lives under a constant microscope, and the world knows to be on the lookout when it comes to Josh.

Approximately one year after he beat Jared Fogle nearly to death, the man responsible for bludgeoning this disgraced former Subway spokesman has finally spoken out.
In the following letter, he explains why Fogle deserved what happened to him.
First, however, a refresher:
In November of 2015, Fogle was sentenced to 15 years behind bars after an investigation determined that he often partook in some truly reprehensible behavior.
According to authorities, Fogle texted over a dozen victims (all of them minors), offering to pay them money for various sex acts, often receiving illicit photos from several of the young girls.
A raid of his home turned up child pornography on Fogle’s computer, while court documents stated he had traveled between Indiana and New York City several times between 2010 and 2013 to pay for sex with teenage girls.
Like we said: truly reprehensible behavior.
With such strong evidence against him, Fogle didn’t even go to trial.
He pleaded guilty in late 2015, hoping to reach a deal with prosecutors that would result in only five years in jail.
But a judge saw things differently. Hence the 15-year punishment.
Fast forward to January of last year and reports that Fogle was savagely beaten in the prison yard.
According to a TMZ report in March, James Nigg – a 60-year-old serving numerous year on a weapons charge – reportedly pushed Fogle while outside with him and then repeatedly punched him in the face.
Shortly after news of this assault went viral, family members of Nigg’s said they were not surprised by the confrontation.
Nigg had reportedly been complaining about the presence of child molesters in the minimum security prison for awhile… and he simply could not handle such a famous one being in his presence.
Now, in a letter obtained by TMZ, Nigg has basically confirmed this assertion.
In the message, Nigg says “Jared is [a] hero” to other pedophiles in prison, writing in disgust:
“You would not believe how arrogant Jared was. He hired bodyguards and the other child molesters looked at him as if he was a god.”
This perception was altered, briefly at least, when Nigg left Fogle with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches on his neck early last year.
Following his pummeling of Fogle, Nigg was moved to an Oklahoma prison.
He says he’s since “lost good times [that is, time off his sentence] and spent many months in the hole, plus the loss of commissary and email” due to the actions he took against Fogle.
Still, “I have no regrets,” Nigg concludes.
We don’t want to ever encourage violence and we never want to take the side of someone in jail on a weapons charge.
So we’ll just stop writing words now in that case.
Farrah Abraham’s not sorry over coming to blows with fellow Teen Mom Amber Portwood, who said “f–k” MTV earlier this morning, referencing the fight.
She’s not even “sorry not sorry,” it seems.
In an exclusive interview with TooFab, Abraham told the website that she’s standing her ground and maintaining her innocence.
“Look, I don’t make anyone run out there,” she reasoned, talking about the Teen Mom beatdown.
“I’m not going to play the high school game of ‘let me beat your ass.’ “
“That’s where [my co-stars] are and I respect where they are in their lives and their journeys but that’s not how I’m conducting myself,” she sniffed.
“As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think Matt [Baier] genuinely has Amber’s best interests.”
“He’s always talking to little girls on the stage and on our sets, pays more attention to everyone else than Amber,” she said, still insinuating that Matt Baier is a pedophile.
“If I’m the only one that’s going to be honest and up front and give a real s–t about someone, I guess you can call me hateful, I’m horrible, I’m not a real friend, but I am a true friend.”
She’s … not a “real” friend, but she’s a “true” friend.
Why not let that one sink in for a second, shall we?
The bit about Baier is definitely disturbing — but that’s not even all of the worst of what’s to come.
“Production can’t hide it anymore,” she said.
“I feel production has hid Catelynn, has hid Maci, and has hid Amber’s behavior for — how many f—king years have I worked on this show? — it’s been about 8 years and I think it’s sad.”
But is Farrah leaving Teen Mom — the franchise that made her famous?
Because it sounds like she’s had just about enough of the other stars’ antics.
Abraham reveled in growing up, while she claimed that the other girls are stuck in high school mode.
We’re not sure about that first part, but the second part?
She might very well have a valid point there.
Farrah said, “If they just allowed themselves to show what’s really going on in these women’s lives, then maybe they could grow out of this high school, stagnant, criminal behavior that they’re in.”
“They cover up them going to jail, they cover up drug things, they cover up what’s really going on with their children, and how they are as parents,” she went on.
“How many years to expect someone to be stuck around all this?”
“It gets stagnant and it gets boring. And I don’t want to be around it,” she concluded.
Is it the end of Teen Mom as we know it?
Or just the end of Farrah Abraham on Teen Mom?
Nope. Nope on all counts.
Ever the Queen of Contradiction, Farrah continued, “As far as I’m concerned, I will always be a part of something I started and no bullies, no criminals, no violent sh-t is going to take me away from a show that I started.”
“When it’s my time to go, I’ll go, but the only time that’s going to be for Teen Mom is when the network takes it off the air.”
“I’ve been pro-take it off the air for many years, because I’m not okay with seeing women who are getting pregnant worried about being famous like Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry,” she slammed, contradicting herself again.
“It’s sad to me that these women who I meet/see, so eager to be famous.”
Do you smell the hypocrisy in here?
We’d say that The Rock was probably cooking it, but he wouldn’t even touch this dramatic mess.
As for Farrah’s final word, she claimed that she could take all three of the Teen Mom girls in one fell swoop.
Which is very obviously something we’d pay to see.
She said, “I’m not scared of anything, I’m not worried. I could probably slug all three of the Stooges in one breath and knock them all out.”
“That’s how little they are compared to me,” she said.
“I don’t have the energy or time, I’m working and I’m running businesses,” she said, waving them off.
“If I’m ever concerned about something, I’ll have security deal with it.”
All we know is that the very next season of Teen Mom: OG is gonna be great.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians seems to slowly be eking its way out of the nethersphere of celebrity, and frankly, Teen Mom is still there, and would be a great void-filler.
Subway knew Jared Fogle was a pedophile more than a decade before he was arrested … so claims his ex-wife in a new lawsuit. Kathleen McLaughlin says in new legal docs — obtained by TMZ — back in 2004, a senior exec at Subway received a complaint…
Unexpected Teen Mom dude feud alert!
Yes, it’s usually the ladies kicking up drama on MTV’s most bonkers reality series, but this week it’s been Farrah Abraham’s unhinged boyfriend Simon Saran stirring the pot.
Saran must be starved for attention, because he’s been posting controversial content to social media for several days straight.
Earlier this week Saran posted a nude photo of Farrah Abraham on Snapchat.
Prior to that, Saran slammed his Teen Mom: OG co-stars in a series of bizarre Twitter rants.
At first, Maci Bookout was the primary target of Saran’s ridicule:
“How can you talk about balance when you can’t even balance walking a straight line cause you’re too f–ked up?” Saran tweeted, apparently in reference to rumors that Bookout drank while she was pregnant.
Shortly thereafter, Saran turned his attention to Amber Portwood and her fiance, Matt Baier.
If you watch Teen Mom: OG online, you’re probably aware that Baier makes quite the easy target.
It’s been rumored that Baier fathered nine children with seven different women and spent several years on the run from child support payments.
Baier denies the reports, but they haven’t exactly endeared him to fans of the show.
Interestingly, Saran decided to ignore all that and take a different tack when attacking Baier online, insisting that the 45-year-old is a pedophile who shouldn’t be trusted around women.
Commenting on a scene in which Amber’s daughter Leah seemed nervous in Baier’s presence, Saran snapped:
“I would be nervous too sweetheart. You don’t want to sit on that man’s lap.”
Saran later added:
“He’s a red dot in the community,” an apparent reference to online sex offender registry maps.
Not surprisingly, Portwood was less than amused by Saran’s trash talk.
She engaged Saran in an online war of words that went down like this:
AMBER: Simon your a little bitch who lets a girl talk mad sh!t to you. Your weak and irrelevant. Your a little boy toy puppet.
SIMON: @AmberLPortwood you let a pedophile into your house congratulations
AMBER: how is he a pedophile lol.. Where does that even come from? Stfu and be the little boy toy weak ass person you are.
SIMON: lol you win!!
Needless to say, the dude is taking the art of savagery to new and exciting places these days.
Saran says that as a thanks for the traffic generated by his online burns, he’ll donate $ 10,000 to the Ronald McDonald House.
We’re not sure how that makes sense, but it has us feelingl slightly less guilty for laughing about all this, so we’ll take it!
