    In case you were looking for an actual “war on women” as opposed to some fictional hysteria constructed for the entertainment of daytime cable news soap operas, you might want to take a look at Turkey. The new president of our “ally” in the region near Syria, Tayyip Erdogan, decided to opine on the subject of gender relations this week and he really wasn’t worried about mincing words. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said women cannot be treated as equal to men, and has accused feminists of rejecting motherhood. “You cannot put women and men on an equal footing,”...

    Marion S. Barry, Jr., the sharecropper's son and civil rights activist who became Washington, D.C.'s most flamboyant and divisive mayor for four terms, died early Sunday at the age of 78. United Medical Center spokeswoman Natalie Williams said Mr. Barry arrived at the hospital around 12:30 a.m. and died at 1:46 a.m., following a brief stay at Howard University Hospital. No cause of death was given, but Barry had suffered many health problems over the years, including prostate cancer, diabetes, anemia and kidney ailments. Among Washington's poorest residents, Barry was viewed as a symbol of hope for the attention he...

    When the new Congress is sworn in next year, Michele Bachmann will no longer be serving. And it will be a major loss to America. Bachmann has been a rare and nearly lone voice sounding the alarm about the threat of Islam and about government infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood. And for speaking the sobering truth, she has been mocked, ridiculed, dismissed, and/or ignored. Not just by those on the left, but by those on the right, as well. In honor of Congresswoman Bachmann, I’ve selected a few interviews and articles that highlight her courageous voice.

For the real “war on women,” however, Democrats might turn to Hillary Clinton herself and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. Juanita Broaddrick never wanted to meet the press. In February of 1999, Dorothy Rabinowitz, a member of The Wall Street Journal‘s editorial board, wrote that when the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal broke the...

    The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week, yet it remained near a 14-year low in a reminder that the labor market appears to be moving toward full health. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose 12,000 to 290,000 for the week ended Nov. 8, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast a smaller increase. Claims have now been below 300,000 for nine straight weeks, and in October hit their lowest level since 2000 at 266,000. "This increase is nothing to worry about," said Ian Shepherdson, an...

    [O]ur media is not guided by the lofty principle of what it is supposed to be about; because history shows that when it comes to these kinds of allegations some powerful men like Bill Cosby are taunted and hunted, while other powerful men with the first name Bill, who have faced similar allegations, are protected. I am of course talking about former-President Bill Clinton, who like Bill Cosby has been accused of rape and has settled a sexual harassment lawsuit. There is also another woman who has accused Clinton of groping her in the White House. All of this is...

    Bill Cosby was asked on NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday whether he had anything to say about the resurgence of allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women years ago. He didn't. Instead, he shook his head, and refused to say a word. Cosby's long comedy career and pedestal as one of America's favorite TV dads have been overshadowed in recent days, as the allegations have gained new attention, though they are not new. One of his accusers wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post on Thursday, an attempt at a Cosby meme generator was overrun with negative comments and Cosby's scheduled...

Tarshis, a former actress, music industry publicist, and journalist, wrote that Cosby, whom she met through mutual friends, would routinely invite her to his room on the Universal lot where the taping of The Bill Cosby Show took place. According to her, the comedian would offer her food and drinks, and although Cosby never drank alcohol in front of her, he would often pour her Bloody Marys. In regards to...

    Unless he had just eaten a bad cup of Jell-O pudding, it would appear that actor and comedian Bill Cosby seems to really, really hate Republicans. The veteran entertainer made that very clear Monday morning when he claimed that Republicans not applauding President Obama’s State of the Union address in unison with Democrats was “as bad as the people who were against any kind of desegregation.” He also wondered aloud about whether or not Republicans today are upset that slavery is no longer legal. Cosby made these remarks on the CNN morning show “Starting Point” after soon-to-be-former host Soledad O’Brien referenced...

Netflix's announcement came shortly after Tuesday's airing of an interview with a model and TV host who claimed Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982. Cosby's lawyer previously said the comedian would be making no comment. John P Schmidt said the allegations were a "decade-old [and] discredited" and that he did not intend...

Netflix announced that it would postpone the launch of a comedy special involving Cosby, presumably in response to the allegations, although Netflix refused to elaborate: Netflix won’t air a new Bill Cosby special after three women slammed the comedian...

Goldberg asked why Ms Bowman didn't go to the authorities for proof that she was raped.

Her response to the massive defeat of the phony baloney War on Women campaign? Republicans won the night but Democrats won the argument. As Ken Shepherd of Newsbusters responded, “Oh, sure, Republicans like Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) might be winning the night, but Democrats have “won the argument.” That’s a piece of ridiculous spin that Rachel Maddow employed during live MSNBC election night coverage shortly...

    This was a year when the War on Women messaging — previously employed so successfully by the Democrats — failed to yield the desired results. Most of the discussions about that failure have focused on Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado. Udall’s obsessive focus on the “War on Women” playbook became so annoying that journalists and even his own supporters dubbed him “Mark Uterus.” But it is absolutely unfair that Udall be tarred with all the failures of the War on Women messaging. No one better encapsulates the Democratic playbook than Wendy Davis, who ran for governor of Texas. Her campaign...

    In a recent Democratic National Committee email, actress Scarlett Johansson said if Republicans win control of the Senate they will take away a woman’s right to choose. Johnansson, who has starred in Hollywood hits including Iron Man and Lost in Translation, is no stranger to the pro-abortion movement. In 2008 and 2012, she campaigned for Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion president in U.S. History; and she has repeatedly supported Planned Parenthood. In fact, in August she designed a t-shirt on behalf of the abortion giant. As LifeNews previously reported, the pink t-shirt read, “Hey Politicians! The 1950s called …” on...

    Democratic Senator Tom Harkin recently opined on the campaign of Republican Joni Ernst and made a comment that touched on her looks. He said, “I hear so much about Joni Ernst. She is really attractive, and she sounds nice. Well, I got to thinking about that. I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”

    Former President Bill Clinton joined some of the biggest Democratic names in North Carolina to fire up a crowd of supporters here Friday afternoon with a simple message: Get as many people as you can to the polls, or else be prepared for Sen. Kay Hagan’s defeat and a GOP takeover of the Senate. Clinton — along with former Gov. Jim Hunt, the longest serving governor of the state, and Reps. David Price and G.K. Butterfield — hailed Hagan as the choice for working families, women and minorities. The former president name-checked issues like education, equal pay for women, voting...

    Nasty New York Times editorial writer David Firestone pretends to care about campaign scare-mongering. But what he and his elitist ilk really fear are independent-thinking women who have dared to exercise their First Amendment powers to defend their Second Amendment rights. This week, Firestone took aim at “attack ads” sponsored by the National Rifle Association. The “worst commercial,” he says, “features a rape victim describing her assault and accusing” former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg “of wanting to take away her right to defend herself.” That rape victim has a name and a story Firestone couldn’t even bother to...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Republican John Katko has seized the momentum and surged past U.S. Rep. Dan Maffei to open up a 10-point lead in their race for Congress, according to a new poll by Syracuse.com/The Post-Standard and Siena College. In a stunning reversal from five weeks ago when Maffei had an 8-point lead in the joint poll, Katko now leads Maffei among likely voters 52 percent to 42 percent. Only 6 percent remain undecided... The poll of 704 likely voters in the district underscores the volatility of the race, with wild swings in the candidates' popularity. Voters were contacted by...

    The “War on Women,” as a political message, has been relatively effective for Democratic candidates even in spite of its intellectual emptiness and its fabricated premises. But the attack on Republicans as hostile to women’s health issues have thus far been largely successful, in no small part due to a credulous and uncurious media which has repeated them uncritically. That has not been the case this cycle. Republicans deserve most of the credit for dismantling this baseless and cynical political attack; the most effective of which has been a stance adopted by candidates like Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis,...
