    Reuters ^ | June 30, 2015
    The hardline Islamic State group has beheaded two women in Syria, the first time it has decapitated female civilians, the founder of a group monitoring the war said on Tuesday. The beheadings took place in the eastern Deir al-Zor province this week said Rami Abdulrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. One of the women was beheaded along with her husband in Deir al-Zor city. In al-Mayadeen city to the south east, the group beheaded another woman and her husband. All of them were accused of sorcery, the monitor said

    There are many ways to spot a fanatic, but a particularly damning one is when, on the rare instance where one admits to acting fanatical, it’s still somehow the victim’s fault. This was on full display in a recent Salon column by Catherine Landis, a Planned Parenthood of Middle & East Tennessee board member and Knoxville Advocates of Reproductive Rights community action team leader. In a piece that stunningly alternates between confessions of abominably unjustified incivility and suggesting it was totally justified, Landis recounts an encounter with a pro-lifer at Tennessee early voting station last November in which she “didn’t...

    A 23 year-old Syrian woman and Islamic State defector now offers a chilling account of the treatment of female recruits by terror leaders. Using the alias “Um Asma” and fully covered by a niqab with only a slit for her eyes, the young woman told German press: “The caliphate is not what you think it is. Women are whipped, sold and stoned. Corpses are on display publicly for weeks,” reports Fox News. Before outbreak of the Syrian conflict in 2011, Asma says she led an ordinary life, listening to music, dancing and even hanging out with Christians. But after the...

    ISIS has already committed countless unspeakable acts on Yazidi and Christian girls and women in Iraq, but the terrorist army may have reached a new low with a twisted new contest in which female slaves captured in war are given away as "prizes" to fighters who show the have mastered the Koran. The shocking practice of giving away human beings as prizes, called "sibya," was organized by the Da'wa and Mosques Department in Al-Baraka province in Syria in honor of the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan and was announced June 19 on ISIS Twitter accounts, according to the...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said this week that he was prepared to sign a measure banning abortion at 20 weeks without an exception for rape or incest because it’s only “in the initial months” that victims are “most concerned” about access to care. Walker, who is expected to announce his run for president at the end of the month, said that such an exception didn’t matter and that he would sign the bill regardless. “I mean, I think for most people who are concerned about that, it’s in the initial months where they’re most concerned about it,” Walker said. “In...

    DES MOINES — A mere 240 people live in the rural northeast Iowa town of Kensett, so when more than 300 crowded into the community center on Saturday night to hear Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, many driving 50 miles, the cellphones of Democratic leaders statewide began to buzz. Kurt Meyer, the county party chairman who organized the event, sent a text message to Troy Price, the Iowa political director for Hillary Rodham Clinton. Mr. Price called back immediately. “Objects in your rearview mirror are closer than they appear,” Mr. Meyer said he had told Mr. Price about Mr. Sanders....

    WHAT THIS country needs, says Bernie Sanders, is less deodorant. The 73-year-old senator from Vermont, now running for the Democratic presidential nomination, told CNBC's John Harwood in an interview on Tuesday that because American consumers can choose from so many brands of personal-care products, kids are going to bed with empty bellies. "You don't necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country," Sanders lamented. He didn't explain exactly howthe profusion of toiletries and athletic footwear leads to childhood hunger, but for the only self-described socialist...

    Sometimes, religious accommodation is hard. Reasonable people will disagree. Is it an affront to secular society to allow a Muslim congregation to organize Friday prayers in a public school cafeteria? Or is it simply a practical way of minimizing disruption to the school day? Kirpans in schools? Public servants in niqabs? The Lord’s Prayer at city council? Hmm, well on the one hand, but on the other hand … Sometimes, though, religious accommodation is not complicated. Sometimes you don’t even need those two words. Sometimes it’s just a soccer team refusing to play another soccer team. That’s what CityNews reports...

    Left-wing Marxist Sen. Bernie Sanders penned a disgusting anti-woman ‘rape’ screed in ’72, but he’ll probably get away with it because, after all, he’s not a conservative It will be interesting to see what the mainstream media will make of an essay written by avowed socialist (and Democratic presidential contender) Sen. Bernie Sanders in 1972, in which he claimed, among other things, that a woman “fantasizes being raped by three men simultaneously.” Here’s a forecast: Sanders, because he’s on the Left side of politics like the mainstream media, will get a pass. Still, his campaign has already begun trying...

    The Hill ^ | May 29, 2015 | Elliot Smilowitz
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) sought to distance himself Thursday from an essay he wrote in the 1970s that discusses rape fantasies. Michael Briggs, a spokesman for the 2016 White House contender’s campaign, called the essay a "dumb attempt at dark satire in an alternative publication,” according to CNN. Briggs added that the writing "in no way reflects his views or record on women,” saying it “was intended to attack gender stereotypes of the '70s.” The essay, published by the Vermont Freeman in 1972, discussed violent sexual fantasies. In it, Sanders wrote that a man’s “typical fantasy” is “a woman tied...

For months now, we've heard appalling testimony from women who escaped the Islamic State's clutches, many of whom endured rape and other hideous acts of violence.

    During the early years of the Reagan administration, a Washington news conference was held for me for my first book, "The State Against Blacks." Before making summary statements about the book, I offered the reporters assembled that they could treat me like a white person. They could ask me hard, pressing questions. They could demand proof of the arguments that I was making. People such as former NAACP President Kweisi Mfume and former Chairman Julian Bond and the Rev. Al Sharpton can make ludicrous statements. An intimidated news media just swallow the nonsense. They are probably afraid to challenge, lest...

    A key figure behind New York’s statewide ban on hydraulic fracturing says that losing out on oil and gas jobs is no big deal because the industry only creates work for women as prostitutes and hotel maids. In an April 6 lecture at the University of Pittsburgh, biologist Sandra Steingraber of New Yorkers Against Fracking described the fight over oil and natural gas development as a feminist issue. “Fracking as an industry serves men. Ninety-five percent of the people employed in the gas fields are men. When we talk about jobs, we’re talking about jobs for men, and we need...

    (LiveActionNews) — A common narrative in our society is that, by opposing abortion and infanticide, Christians are conducting a “war on women.” However, in a fascinating study entitled “The Rise of Christianity,” published by Princeton University Press, sociologist Rodney Stark argues that the phenomenal growth of “the obscure, marginal Jesus movement” was due in large part to women. Stark argues that early Christianity was “especially attractive to women” because “within the Christian subculture women enjoyed far higher status than did women in the Greco-Roman world at large.”Furthermore, Stark argues that the Christian opposition to abortion and infanticide was one of...

    In exposing the liberals war on women we must begin with their physical killing of females (and males).

These acts of violence bring terror to the most helpless and innocent of human beings who are pro-choice — they choose to live. There’s is a "silent scream" as the abortionist pulls the baby apart limb by limb, or injects into the womb a powerful solution that slowly burns and suffocates the infant. This is child abuse at its worst — the sentencing...

    The wording of the judgment is brutal. An appeal court judge has effectively told the ex-wife of a wealthy veterinary surgeon to “get a job, love” (my abbreviation). It is imperative, said the judge, “that the wife go out to work and support herself”. Tracey Wright, a 51-year-old former legal secretary, riding instructor and mother of two, has lost her appeal against a family court ruling to reduce the maintenance she receives in future from her former husband. The case is seen as a landmark ruling for ex-partners of wealthy spouses. The gravy train has come off the rails.

The sermon was delivered on January 23rd, but has only just come under broad public scrutiny after a video of the address surfaced on Sunday. The imam went on to say that women should...

Some of the shelters are given police protection to ensure the girls remain safe. Minister of Labour and Employment Gaudensia Kabaka called on traditional leaders to use their influence to stop “this retrograde...

But yesterday 22-year-old Christian Ferdinand was sentenced to 29 years to life for murdering 14-year-old Shaniesha Forbes whom he was convinced was pregnant but who would not get an abortion. “After telling Ferdinand that she was pregnant and would not get an abortion, [Ferdinand] smothered the teen with a pillow, sprayed the corpse with Axe body spray and ignited it,” wrote John Marzulli for the New York Daily News. “Then he stuffed Shaniesha inside a suitcase and tossed it into Gerritsen Creek.

    Abortions reached a historic low in 2013 in Pennsylvania [32,108–a decline of 7%], as unsafe abortion centers shut down and women had better access to life-affirming pregnancy resources. A lot of the credit goes to the thousands of dedicated pro-life volunteers across the state who work to protect every child and mother from the devastation of abortion. Still, 32,108 abortions happened in 2013, and that means we have a lot of work to do. The report from the state Department of Health points to key areas where we can focus our efforts. Here are ten important facts from the report:...

U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson entered a permanent injunction and final judgment Wednesday siding with Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky and barring the 2013 law because it violated the constitutional Equal Protection Clause. She ruled preliminarily last month.
