    Michigan Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Gary Peters (D-MI) has launched a new advertisement that falsely claims GOP candidate Terri Lynn Land wants to cut women’s access to various female health services. The new ad comes as Peters and his campaign have completely publicly ignored an investigation by Breitbart News into Peters’ military background, in which documents and interviews with military leaders—including one of Peters’ former commanding officers—have shown that he fabricated much of his service record for political gain on the campaign trail. “This is an important election for women,” a woman in the Peters campaign ad says. “And...

The $20,000 donation was made by Leslie Dach -- whose son Jonathan has been linked to the scandal -- on Sept. 19, 2012, to the Obama Victory Fund.

    College students overwhelmingly swung for President Obama in 2008 and 2012, but they’re now finding their on-campus work hours cut back, thanks to Obamacare. The latest example comes from the University of Colorado Boulder, where administrators posted an online notice last week informing students that their university-provided employment would be capped at 25 hours per week as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

    The White House had information two years ago indicating that one of their advance travel volunteers, the son of a major Democratic donor with ties to the White House, was involved in the Secret Service prostitution scandal. That former aide now works for the State Department's Office on Global Women's Issues. State recommends a "zero-tolerance" government policy on prostitution even when, as in this case, it is legal in the country in question. The Washington Post published a blockbuster story Wednesday night which alleges that 25-year-old Jonathan Dach, a White House volunteer working on the advance travel team for the...

    Earlier this week we looked at how one poll does not a game changer make when it comes to the Kentucky Senate race. But the lackluster performance by Alison Lundergan Grimes has left a lot of Democrat strategists scratching their heads. Surely a stodgy old Republican white man should be getting his clock cleaned in the women’s vote, right? What about the War on Women? Matt Lewis, writing at The Week, breaks down the numbers. In two Bluegrass Polls, conducted in July and August, respectively, by SurveyUSA, Grimes led among women by a single measly percent. This was corroborated by...

A team of NYPD crime-scene specialists then moved in and began scouring for evidence.

    The Attorney General of Virginia recently released an opinion sure to delight rapists, sex traffickers, and pedophiles all over the state, freeing them to do more of their deeds without fear of being known. No longer do medical personnel–which includes abortion clinics–need to report suspected rape when a teenage girl is found to have an abortion. According to Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, those reporting laws only apply if someone thinks a parent or guardian raped a girl.The opinion, which includes, “prenatal or abortion services” as possible rape indicators that no longer have to be reported to law enforcement, was...

    Health insurance policies in California will have to cover all federally approved contraceptives for women by 2016 without charging copayments under legislation signed this week by Gov. Jerry Brown, countering trends in other states and the U.S. Supreme Court. The bill, SB1053 by Sen. Holly Wanker, D-Los Angeles, expands state laws that required coverage for most birth-control drugs and devices approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The new law mandates coverage for all FDA-approved contraception, prohibits co-payments and includes managed-care Medi-Cal plans, which are not expressly covered by current laws.

    The phony "war against women" has taken a strange and unexpected turn. Republican candidates are promoting expanded access to birth control, with contraceptives available over the counter. Democrats in varying shades of blue dismiss something they've always wanted as mere Republican politics. You would think Democrats would be grateful for enhanced access for women, a dream come true. This is the catch 22 of the 2014 campaign. Democrats and Planned Parenthood are obviously afraid that if Republicans get credit for this pip of an idea, they'll fall into the diminishing gender gap and never be heard again. The latest polls...

He begins by claiming race was not an issue in the targeting of victims. “He argues that evidence suggests that victims were not targeted because they were white but because they were vulnerable and their vulnerability caused them to seek out 'warmth,...

    As the late, great Eric Hoffer once said, "Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket." So it is with feminism. There was a time in America when women couldn't vote, when they weren't allowed to work in the same professions as men and when they weren't really considered the equal of a man. Feminism grew in response to that and even many men embraced it because they saw the inherent unfairness of society. These men also had capable women they loved and respected -- their mothers, their wives, their daughters –...

    Democrats want to talk about "personhood" and reproductive freedom. They want to tell voters about a stubborn pay gap and women hurt by a low minimum wage. But what they don't want to do is talk about a "war on women." Indeed, the party that so effectively deployed the "war" rhetoric to help defeat Mitt Romney in 2012 has now sworn off its catch phrase, dropping it almost completely from a campaign strategy that, in so many other ways, is still very much about women's issues. "[Saying] 'Republicans are waging a war on women' actually doesn't test very well," said...

Specifically it was former GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin who got chomped. “She’ll weigh in on anything,” said cast member Kristin Bauer van Straten disdainfully of Palin revealing that she turned down the attempt HBO made to get the ex-Alaska governor on the show for its most recent broadcast. Besides a bloodbath at a fictional fundraiser for real-life Texas Senator Ted Cruz, the July 20 episode had...

    The militant group Islamic State (Isis) has ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations says. The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, Jacqueline Badcock, told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Irbil.

    Sally Quinn founded the “On Faith” section of The Washington Post, and she’s shown a repeated pattern of loathing conservative Christians, especially Sarah Palin. In Saturday’s , she went there again, trashing Sarah Palin as selfishly ruining our political culture, insisting she recommends a “long long silent retreat for her.” Rather typically, Quinn was cooing over a feminist Buddhist lecturer named Tara Brach: Brach quotes the spiritual teacher Swami Satchidananda as saying that the difference between illness and wellness is the I in illness and the We in wellness. What has been happening in politics in Washington lately is symptomatic...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin rejected overtures from True Blood's producers for a cameo role on the conservative-bashing vampire show. Her instincts proved to be correct after Sunday's HBO episode in which Republican women were once again demeaned when one of the lead characters said in horror, "Oh my God, I'm a Republi-c*nt." Palin told Breitbart News after she heard about the misogynistic episode that she simply wondered, "'True Blood' or true gall?" "The brilliant minds of 'True Blood' were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman...

    It was bad enough that the alleged rape took place in the sanctity of a mosque and that the accused man was a mullah who invoked the familiar defence that it had been consensual sex. But the victim was only 10 years old. And there was more: The authorities said her family members openly planned to carry out an honour killing in the case – against the young girl. The mullah offered to marry his victim instead. This past week, the awful matter became even worse. On Tuesday, local policemen removed the girl from the shelter that had given her...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Shortly after the Sunni militant group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) retook control of Raqqa earlier this year, it created the al-Khansaa' Brigade, an all-female unit operating in the city. Its purpose is to apprehend civilian women in Raqqa who do not follow the organization's strict brand of Sharia law, including a mandate that all women be fully covered in public and that they be accompanied by a male chaperone. "We have established the brigade to raise awareness of our religion among women, and to punish women who do not abide by the law," says Abu Ahmad,...

    More than 30 years ago, Congress wisely passed the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. Yet today, many pregnant women still experience unfair and unnecessary challenges on the job. Nondiscrimination has been the law of the land for over three decades, yet, in some workplaces, the standard for treatment of pregnant women has remained in the dark ages. Some are fired or demoted, with no hesitation, when a modest accommodation would allow them to continue to work and support their families. The stories are heart-wrenching and preventable. There's the pregnant woman who was terminated when, in violation of company policy, she started carrying...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s (D-CT) overreaching bill, ironically called the “Women’s Health Protection Act” (S. 1696). This bill, co-sponsored by 35 Senate Democrats would overturn the vast majority of state pro-life laws. It is a radical, extreme, pro-abortion bill. If passed, this one federal law would invalidate most state pro-life laws, common-sense laws that have been passed to protect women and their babies. It would further prohibit states from introducing new pro-life laws in the future. The following is a short list of laws this bill may invalidate: - Abortion facility health and...

    In a unanimous decision last month, the Supreme Court struck down a Massachusetts buffer zone law prohibiting pro-life free speech outside abortion clinics. The decision was a huge victory for pro-life sidewalk counselors who provide women with abortion alternatives. In their ruling, the Supteme Court struck down a Massachusetts law that created a 35-foot “buffer zone” restricting pro-life advocates from speaking with people entering abortion facilities. massachusettsSaying the abortion buffer zone is “inconsistent with the First Amendment,” the Supreme Court ruled that that the buffer zone violated the First Amendment because it “restricts access to ‘public way[s]’ and ‘sidewalk[s],’ places...

    Just when you thought there couldn’t be another Planned Parenthood scandal, the pro-life group Live Action finds this: an employee encouraging a 15-year-old girl to engage in sex fantasy games with her boyfriend. In the second episode of a series entitled “SexEd: Planned Parenthood’s Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids,” a Live Action volunteer went undercover at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado, to see how workers would react to her questions about Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission (BDSM). Unfortunately, this particular employee was all too eager to give the young girl advice about how she and...
