  • UK: State schools isolate non-Muslims

    Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham and...
  • Pro-abortion Wendy Davis losing among women voters in Texas: new poll

    AUSTIN, TX, April 16, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A new survey by a liberal polling firm is bad news for Wendy Davis, the Democratic would-be governor of Texas who rose to national prominence after filibustering a bill to restrict abortions in the state. Although Davis promotes herself proudly as a candidate who cares about “women’s issues” – a euphemism for legalized abortion-on-demand, or as the Davis team describes it, “expanding access to women’s health care” – it seems women in Texas aren’t interested in what she’s selling. According to Public Policy Polling, 46 percent of Texas women view Davis “unfavorably,” and...

    Are conservatives linguistically challenged? Or are they just naïve enough to think they can win the battle of ideas with — ideas? Okay, and money. Conservatives, like liberals, will spend huge amounts of money this year to get their ideas across to voters. But what they fail to do is bundle their thoughts into a bright, shiny linguistic package that explodes in the face of their enemies when opened. The left has assembled a rich lexicon of phrases that serve either as stilettos that can be turned again and again in the guts of their opponents, or shields that obscure...

    April 14, 2014 (Tanya Granic Allen) - At the UN’s 47th Commission on Population and Development, the message from some Non-Governmental Organizations with vested interests couldn’t be clearer: nothing will stop them from conducting more abortions. The tone of these meetings has, at times, been uncomfortable to anyone who holds life to be sacred, or believes maternal health initiatives is an excellent way to support women, especially those in the developing world. While at an UN affiliated meeting hosted by International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and Ipas, two abortion supporting and providing global powerhouses, I was targeted, discriminated against, man-handled,...

    The "war on women" political slogan is in fact a war against common sense. It is a statistical fraud when Barack Obama and other politicians say that women earn only 77 percent of what men earn — and that this is because of discrimination. It would certainly be discrimination if women were doing the same work as men, for the same number of hours, with the same amount of training and experience, as well as other things being the same. But study after study, over the past several decades, has shown repeatedly that those things are not the same. Constantly...

    "HONOR DIARIES" might not be coming to a theater near you, at least not if CAIR gets its way. The award-winning documentary about "honor" violence against girls and women in much of the Muslim world was released last month in honor of International Women's Day, and it didn't take long for the Council on American Islamic Relations to slap its all-purpose "Islamophobic!" label on it. The film has been shown in dozens of venues, but CAIR has raised enough of a stink to get screenings cancelled on several college campuses, including the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois....

    After months on the defensive over his health law, a more combative President Barack Obama has emerged to fight about gender politics, leading to an election-year competition with Republicans for support from women. No single group will be more important to Democrats’ fortunes, say White House advisers, than unmarried women, who are likely to go Democratic—if they vote, and that’s far from certain when trust in Washington is low. The president is trying to convince women that Democrats are more concerned about improving their financial standing in difficult economic times, and he charges Republicans with standing in the way. “Republicans...

    Radical feminism is passé and in disarray. From pushing the wage gap myth to dismissing personal responsibility, our leftist sistas are clueless about true women’s rights. How did birth control access become the only issue women care about? Who decided it was acceptable to destroy human life? More importantly, why should we look to big government policies to advance our gender? Now, the feministas are going after Hollywood actresses. In an interview for the May 2014 U.K. issue of Harper’s Bazaar, actress Kirsten Dunst defied the status quo and did the unthinkable: she came out against blurring gender differences! "I...

    In Pakistan, according to a report released by Movement for Solidarity and Peace, 100 to 700 Christian girls are forced to convert to Islam each year. The girls are usually between the ages of 12 and 25; they are abducted, forced to convert and then married to the abductor or to a third party. What commonly happens is that the family of the abducted girl files a First Information Report (FIR) for kidnapping to the police, and then the abductor files a counter FIR that accuses the girl’s family for harassing their ‘willfully’ converting daughter. The girl is forced to...

    Politics: This fall, Democrats will no doubt resurrect the "war on women" theme to try to hold the Senate. But they don't really care about all women, just the unmarried ones. The IBD/TIPP poll shows why. According to the Washington Post, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is building a huge computer database that will let it predict women's marital status. That way they can "pinpoint unmarried women as the target of specific, poll-test messages," according to one source quoted in the story. Despite all the talk among Democrats and the media about the "gender gap" that has supposedly resulted from...

The main reason that the serial killer managed to elude detection for so long was that the state of Pennsylvania didn’t bother to inspect his facility for seventeen years, even though state law required it — and even though previous inspections showed significant causes for concern. The grand jury report specifically blamed politics in Pennsylvania for a lack of action. Had federal investigators not started probing Gosnell for his illegal trade in drugs, he’d still be cheerfully murdering babies that survived abortions and a few of their mothers, too.One might think that other states would have learned...

    Several months ago, a confusing call was placed by a Planned Parenthood worker in Houston to 911 dispatch during complications following an abortion. A 33-year-old woman continued to lose a dangerous amount of blood at the behemoth abortion mill on the Gulf Freeway as Planned Parenthood tried to circumvent the fact that the woman was bleeding out. It is likely that Planned Parenthood knew that pro-lifers would be pulling the call records to find out what had prompted the ambulance to arrive at Planned Parenthood, and wanted to obfuscate the facts for the public. But in so doing, the worker...

    The Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case has abortion activists extremely riled up. The way they carry on, you’d think that David Green was personally mandating whether or not his female employees could have sex and use birth control. Of course, Hobby Lobby already covers 95% of prescription birth control — they’re just not willing to cover abortifacients like IUDs, Ella, and Plan B. And they aren’t preventing anyone from using it, either. They just don’t want to pay for it. This is evidently unthinkable, and predictably, the pro-aborts are losing their minds over it.

The congressman's lawyers revealed video of the domestic incident that played out at the Grayson home Saturday, which they said proved that Lolita Grayson committed an attack, not her husband. "He was hoping that this matter would stay in the courts and outside of the press, but since horrendous accusations have been made against him ... he believes that the truth must come out," Grayson's attorney Mark NeJame told reporters during...

Grayson's office released a statement denying his wife's accusations. Grayson says he never touched his wife,...

    Bill Clinton has really whore'd himself out this time -- surrounding himself with real prostitutes. Slick Willie probably had no clue ... but the women Bill posed with at an L.A. charity event Thursday night are two star hookers at the famed Nevada Bunny Ranch brothel. The brunette goes by Ava Adora and the blonde goes by Barbie Girl. According to her bio on the BR website, the blonde is very flexible and specializes in de-virginizing.

    UNICEF activists are campaigning to educate Somaliland communities about the harms of female genital mutilation. But the stigma of being ‘uncut’ is still so strong that many leaders say they will not stop practicing FGM.The 30 Somali teenagers - both boys and girls - all agreed: Female genital mutilation is harmful and the practice should be abandoned. But what they really meant, they revealed moments later, is that girls should have their genitalia cut - just not sewn shut. "It's our tradition and if the girls are not subjected to suna(cutting) she will not be accepted for marriage," said Asthma...

    How Facebook Exploits Underage Girls in its Quest for Ad Revenue Sophie Bean, 14, of Sequim, Wash., said she was thought she was “liking” a Facebook ad related to fashion modeling. Instead, it promoted a Facebook page that recruited adult webcam models. “I just thought it was for modeling, and I’m interested in that, and I thought it would help me out,” Sophie said. Sophie wasn’t the only teen connecting with the page, which Facebook statistics show is most popular with users 13 to 17. Clicking on it didn’t pull the teens into nude webcam modeling, but did mean they...

    No pro-lifer doubts the political muscle of Planned Parenthood’s “political entities”– the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes. As a key component of the Democratic Party’s “left of center” coalition, they have access to gazillions of dollars and a voice—a large voice—at the table. But besides the usual self-congratulation and soft-peddle treatment by the mainstream media, what else can we learn from Alexander Burns’ “Planned Parenthood reveals big 2014 game plan,” which ran in Wednesday’s POLITICO? For starters, they take credit for—and are given credit by Burns for—the election of pro-abortion Terry McAuliffe over pro-life Ken Cuccinelli in...

    The Democrats’ 2014 campaign strategy should surprise no one: They don’t want voters dwelling on Obamacare’s broken promises or our unabating economic doldrums, so they are doubling down on the War on Women campaign tactic that worked so well in 2012 and in the 2013 Virginia gubernatorial contest. The substance of the Democrats’ women agenda is an afterthought, and for good reason. There will be the expected hand wringing about the wage gap and calls for yet another round of “equal pay” legislation. Never mind that honest liberals admit the wage gap is a product of women and men’s different...
