Alarming claims have surfaced against the Boy Scouts of America, accusing thousands of leaders of abuse

The allegations came to light and a group of alleged victims will hold a press conference in NY to speak out publicly, claiming a pattern

The BSA said in a statement that they ‘care deeply about all victims of child sex abuse and sincerely apologize to anyone who was harmed’

Thousands of Boy Scouts of America leaders face new charges of sexual abuse, claims that are expected to be revealed in detail Tuesday in New York and New Jersey. Names of nearly 200 of the accused are also expected to be released.

The allegations came to light Monday night and a group of alleged victims was expected to testify about the widespread pattern abuse within the scouting organization later Tuesday.

The victims’ attorney, Jeff Anderson, called it a system of denial and cover-ups. He claims the Boy Scouts have files on child abusers within their ranks dating back to the 1940s.

“The lives of the survivors and their families have been shattered and destroyed in so many ways,” Anderson said. He says the new allegations accuse more than 7,000 leaders of abuse, with more than 100 in New York.

Wall Street’s New Rule Is ‘Avoid Women At All Cost’


It’s amazing how “empowered women” seamlessly transition into “damsels in distress” whenever it suits them.


#MeToo Backfires: Wall Street’s New Rule Is ‘Avoid Women At All Cost’

No one could have predicted this!
From Bloomberg:

No more dinners with female colleagues. Don’t sit next to them on flights. Book hotel rooms on different floors. Avoid one-on-one meetings.

In fact, as a wealth adviser put it, just hiring a woman these days is “an unknown risk.” What if she took something he said the wrong way?

Across Wall Street, men are adopting controversial strategies for the #MeToo era and, in the process, making life even harder for women.

Just ignore the fact #MeToo made life infinitely harder for men.

Call it the Pence Effect, after U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who has said he avoids dining alone with any woman other than his wife. In finance, the overarching impact can be, in essence, gender segregation.

Interviews with more than 30 senior executives suggest many are spooked by #MeToo and struggling to cope. “It’s creating a sense of walking on eggshells,” said David Bahnsen, a former managing director at Morgan Stanley who’s now an independent adviser overseeing more than $1.5 billion.

Many are also having their lives destroyed due to false accusations.

Now, more than a year into the #MeToo movement — with its devastating revelations of harassment and abuse in Hollywood, Silicon Valley and beyond — Wall Street risks becoming more of a boy’s club, rather than less of one.

“Women are grasping for ideas on how to deal with it, because it is affecting our careers,” said Karen Elinski, president of the Financial Women’s Association and a senior vice president at Wells Fargo & Co. “It’s a real loss.”

Just pull yourself up by your bootstraps!

There’s a danger, too, for companies that fail to squash the isolating backlash and don’t take steps to have top managers be open about the issue and make it safe for everyone to discuss it, said Stephen Zweig, an employment attorney with FordHarrison.

“If men avoid working or traveling with women alone, or stop mentoring women for fear of being accused of sexual harassment,” he said, “those men are going to back out of a sexual harassment complaint and right into a sex discrimination complaint.”

This is the ridiculous situation we now find ourselves in.

Being accused of sexual discrimination is nothing compared to being falsely accused of rape, so don’t expect this trend to reverse.

Interest in Alternative “Traditional Christian” Boy Scouts Skyrockets


Available via the Wayback Machine.

Over the years, the Boy Scouts of America has been making steps to become more “accepting” and “inclusive” — at the risk to its traditional values.

In 2013, the organization allowed members to identify as gay, then a couple of years later, the group welcomed gay leaders. And beginning this year, “transgender” scouts — girls who pretend they’re boys — were allowed to join the once all-male group.

Not everyone has viewed these changes as positive. A new group that recognizes the traditional values that the Boys Scouts left behind is gaining popularity because of the BSA’s shift to serve a liberal agenda.

Trail Life USA, which focuses on “traditional Christian values” already has more than 20,000 members across the country.

The Scouts’ Inclusion Of Girls Is A DISASTER For Both Boys And Girls


Don’t claim you weren’t warned, fathers of America. Why aren’t you up in arms over this ? ? ?

Gary Bauer | President, American Values

The Boy Scouts of America dropped the word “Boy” from its name this month following an earlier decision to begin allowing girls to participate in its programs. The organization will now be known as “Scouts BSA.”

So like KFC (formerly Kentucky Fried Chicken), the SAT (formerly Scholastic Aptitude Test) and NARAL (formerly the National Abortion Rights Action League), the Scouts have clumsily turned its name into an acronym whose letters officially stand for…nothing.

Which is appropriate, actually, given the Scouts’ recent departure from the values it once stood for. In 2013, the organization began admitting openly gay scouts. And in 2015, it ended a prohibition on gay Scout leaders. Last year, it even began allowing girls who identify as boys to participate.

This is a shame. The Boy Scouts used to be a place where boys learned to become men. They were taught not only how to tie a knot and build a fire but also how to work in a team, manage their time, control their emotions and stay fit. They were even taught about the value of faith and patriotism.

When I was growing up, to call someone “a boy scout” was to say that he was morally upright, resourceful and honest—someone you could trust to help your mother out of a jam or would approve of dating your sister or marrying your daughter.

Boy Scouts On Verge Of Bankruptcy

The Boy Scouts of America is considering declaring bankruptcy, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

The Wednesday report comes in the wake of sinking membership and multiple controversies surrounding the 108-year-old organization, including sex abuse allegations and its controversial decision to change its program name from Boy Scouts to Scouts BSA and allow girls into that program.

Chicago law firm Sidley Austin has reportedly been hired to assist in what would be a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

As the organization has made decisions deemed to be more inclusive, such as allowing openly gay scouts in 2013 and scoutmasters in 2015 as well as the 2018 decision to allow girls, membership has continued to decline sharply, from over 4 million members at its peak to a claimed 2.3 million members at present.

Those numbers will likely continue to decline. Earlier this year, the Mormon church announced the end of a long-standing partnership with the Boy Scouts and the formation of its own program for boys beginning in 2020, a move that could cost the organization almost a third of its members. The church was reportedly “deeply troubled” by the group’s decision to allow openly gay leaders. (RELATED: The Scouts’ Inclusion Of Girls Is A DISASTER For Both Boys And Girls)

Additionally, the Boy Scouts have come under criticism of late for keeping records of sex abuse perpetrated by scoutmasters — called the “perversion files” — under wraps for decades instead of revealing them to the public.

Mike Roe wrote in May of the “death of the Boy Scouts of America.”

In my opinion, this kind of attrition can only explained by an increasing lack of relevance, or, the perception of irrelevance. Right now, there’s a perception that The Boy Scouts have gone soft. That’s the real tragedy, Sharon, because I can’t think of anything more needed in our country today, than a youth organization that offers kids the same experience I underwent in the basement of Kenwood Church. Why? Because our country’s current obsession with ‘safe spaces’ is destroying character faster than the Boy Scouts of today can build it.

The Den Chief’s Warrant


Recognize and honor your Den Chiefs with a beautiful presentation plaque!

Here’s a beautiful recreation of the traditional boy scout Den Chief’s Warrant. I spent a good amount of time tracking down the original font used in the 1950s and am sure you’ll be delighted with the resulting presentation. The signature is of the current BSA Inc CEO but you can abolish it with a graphic editor if desired.

This Warrant is for cub scout and Webelos den chiefs.  The Den Chief cords are blue and gold except for Webelos Den Chiefs who wear red, yellow and green cords matching the Webelos colors.

I mounted copies of the Warrant on high grade thin plywood, similar to the process used by National Supply in years gone by. It makes a great presentation and your Chiefs will be proud to hang it on the wall when they get home!

Beautiful reconstruction of the 1950’s era Den Chief’s Warrant. Note the authentic typefaces.

After making controversial decisions over the past few years, the Boy Scouts of America is now facing bankruptcy and a massive decline in membership.

The organization has “hired law firm Sidley Austin for assistance in a possible chapter 11 bankruptcy filing,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Daily Caller reported that at its peak, the organization had a membership of approximately 4 million. Now that number has dropped to an estimated 2.3 million. The controversy the organization has faced in recent years and legal costs for sexual abuse lawsuits are both believed to be factors in the decline.

The trouble may have begun in 2013 when the organization decided to allow openly gay boys to join the ranks. From there, the changes continued to bring outrage across America.

In 2015, the Boy Scouts of America lifted the ban on openly gay scout leaders. In 2017, the changes continued and transgender boys were allowed to be members.

Girls were allowed in the program in 2018 — despite the fact that they have their own Girl Scouts program. The new program was given the “gender-neutral name” of Scouts BSA.
