  • Hillary: Women Cannot be 'Establishment'

    02/07/2016 3:34:18 AM PST · by Libloather · 28 replies
    Lifezette ^ | 2/05/16 | Brendan Kirby
    Hillary Clinton on Thursday said a woman cannot be considered part of the Establishment. Clinton offered the claim during a Democratic presidential debate with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in Durham, New Hampshire. Sanders said Clinton "has the entire Establishment or almost the entire Establishment behind her. That's a fact." But Hillary said her sex makes that impossible. "Well, look, I've got to just jump in here because, honestly, Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the Establishment. And I've got to tell you that...

    Tradcons and feminists have more in common than either would care to confront. Browsing popular alt-right outposts, I’ve found that a significant number of them — not all; I don’t mean this to be a sweeping indictment of the tradcon right — share with feminists a misunderstanding of sex differences and of the functioning of the sexual market (hint: it’s transactional in nature, and sneering at the messenger won’t change that fact).

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin referred to Madeline Albright's somewhat well-known saying, found on a Starbucks coffee cup, that "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women." At the time, Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, huffed: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics." She naturally followed that statement with an intense political attack on Palin and GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Now that Democrat Hillary...

    We’re having ourselves an historic presidential campaign in case you hadn’t noticed. Sure, we’ve only had one state vote so far, but a new record has been set. We now have not one, but two Hispanic candidates who have received more votes and more delegates than any other in the history of presidential primaries. This is a truly great day for diversity and the future of the American melting pot. Or at least it would be if either of them had been Democrats. Sadly, the Party of the Donkey is running two very white senior citizens so the groundbreaking nature...

The generals, Robert Neller, USMC and Mark Milley, US Army, told the committee that women should no longer be exempted from the Selective Service program. The integration of women into combat position without a long term study by the defense department is being forced...

    "To Muslim women's rights activists fighting for equal access to mosques as part of a broader campaign for reform — from equal education for women and girls to freedom from so-called 'honor killings', the president's visit to a mosque that practices such blatant inequity represents a step backwards." That was from Asra Q. Nomani and Ify Okoye in the New York Times. They were referring to President Obama's visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore Wednesday, the first visit to a U.S. mosque he has made as president. Nomani and Okoye stood outside protesting the president's choice of venue. "While...

    The first woman in Tennessee and the fourth in the nation to enlist as a combat engineer in the Army went AWOL last month and is now considered a deserter, according to a military spokesperson. Erika Lopez made headlines in July when she enlisted for a role that could put her on the front lines of battle, just after the U.S. Army lifted its ban on women in combat roles. Ms. Lopez was in basic training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, by September but was placed on convalescent leave by the end of the year, according to a local CBS...

    Imagine your seventeen-year-old daughter fighting for her life in hand-to-hand combat with battle-hardened enemy soldiers. How long would she survive? Two minutes? One minute? There is a resurgent movement to push female military personnel into ever more intimate contact with hostile forces. The few arguments mustered in support of doing this focus narrowly on manpower issues or misplaced feminist vanity. In all the literature on this subject that I have collected over several years, not once have I found a proponent of women in combat who would speak honestly about the consequences of thrusting our daughters into man-against-woman festivals of...

"Every American who's physically qualified should register for the draft," said Neller at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday. "I think...

President Obama's recent executive action will make implementing our brilliant moneymaking plan almost impossible to accomplish. When we released the video announcement about creating an engineering firm staffed only with women, the response was almost overwhelmingly positive. The idea was genius: exploit the pay gap between men and women to generate obscene profits. Investors, like you, lined up by the dozen, up to the point that we had to turn interested parties away.

    Ms. Clinton has placed at the core of her campaign the fact that she is a woman and that it would be so nice to have a woman in the White House. As in any presidential run it is fair game to analyze whether that precept represents something Americans should vote for when they go to the ballot box. That makes the relationship with her husband Bill Clinton a matter for discussion. Let's make this clear from the start; Bill Clinton's support by Democratic women like Debbie Wasserman Schultz is based on him being a supporter of the pro-abortion orthodoxy....

Trump wrote that he once considered an open marriage with his first wife, and in his book "The Art of the Comeback" he said: "If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller." Not only did he commit mass adultery, but he bragged about it. Should such an immoral man be elected President? But it is a private affair, you may say. His private life,...

    As we confront a hostile Russia today, the West is unsure what to do. For guidance, perhaps we should look back to the Soviet era, when we possessed a decidedly stronger sense of allied purpose. In February 1984, Margaret Thatcher flew home from the Moscow funeral of the Soviet leader Yuri Andropov. Frustrated by his equally aged successor, Konstantin Chernenko, the British prime minister told her aides, “For heaven’s sake, try and find me a young Russian.” She was searching for change. In London in April 1975, as leader of Britain’s opposition, Thatcher had her first one-on-one meeting with a...

    WASHINGTON -- It is apparently a little-known fact in the Obama administration that girls are weaker than boys and that grown women are weaker than grown men. Moreover, women training for combat positions suffer physical injuries at twice the rate of men, and they suffer significantly higher rates of mental disorders such as depression and anxiety after exposure to combat. Of course, you probably knew this by simple observation or by reading the sports page and noting that women's athletic records are significantly lower than men's records. But then, you are not in the Obama administration. The administration is being...

"The Female Protection Forces of the Land Between Two Rivers" is comprised of roughly 50 Christian women – hairdressers, cultural society workers and mothers back home, according to the UK's Independent – who are taking up arms to protect fellow Christians in the region and stand up to what ISIS propaganda labels a woman's "divinely appointed right" to stay at home.

    Completely voluntary of course. One of the unfortunate side effects of importing over a million (mostly male) refugees from a misogynist third world hell-hole is that their views of women have a tendency to be ...archaic. We’re not talking about a “woman’s place is in the home” level of chauvinism, either. This is more of a “women are property” mindset. With that comes widespread issues of violence and sexual abuse. So Norway is offering asylum seekers a course, in which they will be challenged to master difficult concepts like “rape is wrong.”

    Women are paying thousands of dollars more over the course of their lives than men to purchase similar products, according to a study of the gender pricing of goods in New York City, which revealed widespread gender-based pricing disparities. Comparing nearly 800 products with clear male and female versions from more than 90 brands sold in store and online, NYC's Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) which carried out the study into gender pricing, found that the women's version of products cost more than men's. [Snip] The DCA found that, on average and across five industries, women's products cost 7 percent...

    How Hillary Clinton Is Building An Army Of Millennial Women Supporters As Democratic frontrunner continues a young-female-focused pop culture blitz, her diverse team intensifies voter strategy to keep campaign wheels turning 20 December 2015 If you’re a woman of a certain age (say, 18-34), you may have noticed that Hillary Clinton has been spending a lot of time hanging out with members of your cohort: Uzo Aduba, Lena Dunham, Abbi and Ilana from Broad City, to name a few. This fall, the Democratic frontrunner has gone full-on millennial female, talking about Planned Parenthood on Snapchat, race and The Good Wife...

    SANDNES, Norway - When he first arrived in Europe, Abdu Osman Kelifa, a Muslim asylum seeker from the Horn of Africa, was shocked to see women in skimpy clothes drinking alcohol and kissing in public. Back home, he said, only prostitutes do that, and in locally made movies couples "only hug but never kiss." **SNIP** Henry Ove Berg, who was Stavanger's police chief during the spike in rape cases, said he supported providing migrants sex education because "people from some parts of the world have never seen a girl in a miniskirt, only in a burqa." When they get to...

    Three days after the terrorist attack in which 14 people were killed at a holiday party in San Bernardino, California, a crowd of 1,500 Republican faithful streamed into the sunny lobby of Cedar Rapids' U.S. Cellular Center, passed through metal detectors, and took their seats for a four-hour oratory marathon by four presidential candidates, ostensibly focused on economic issues. But people's minds seemed elsewhere -- flags, as you drove through the city, waved at half-staff, and murmurs about homegrown terror were amplifying quickly. He wasn't in attendance that day in Iowa, and it would be two more days before he...

    The men in the U.S. military's most dangerous jobs care little about political correctness or gender equality. And they have a message for their political leadership. When they are fighting in the shadows or bleeding on the battlefield, women have no place on their teams. In blunt and, at times, profanity-laced answers to a voluntary survey, more than 7,600 of America's special operations forces spoke with nearly one voice. Allowing women to serve in Navy SEAL, Army Delta or other commando units could hurt their effectiveness and lower the standards, and it may drive men away from the dangerous posts....

    I was born a Muslim and lived all my life as a follower of Islam. After the barbaric terrorist attacks done by the hands of my fellow Muslims everywhere on this globe, and after the too many violent acts by Islamists in many parts of the world, I feel responsible as a Mus-lim and as a human being, to speak out and tell the truth to protect the world and Muslims as well from a coming catastrophe and war of civilizations. I have to admit that our current Islamic teaching creates violence and hatred toward Non-Muslims. We Muslims are the...

    Sergeant Major Lehew, a 27 year veteran of the United States Marine Corps, speaks the honest truth that no one wants to hear about women in combat. Sergeant Major Justin Lehew is a beast among men. At a time where the entire military is absolutely terrified of speaking their minds, he personified moral courage. This man is a leader of Marines, and when it comes to protecting the combat effectiveness of the United States Marine Corps, he let his words speak without the fear of repercussion.

    As the Islamic State amped up attacks around the world, the Pentagon responded by bravely announcing that American women will now be put in direct ground combat. Whereupon "military intelligence" secured a permanent place in the Encyclopedia of Oxymorons...SNIP...There's plenty of evidence that women and men as groups aren't equal in the demands of combat, even if some women may be and some men may not be. The few and far between shouldn't be the basis for institutional overhaul, though this seems to be our template for mandates these days. Among the evidence ignored by Obama, Carter and others are...

    The key data Obama's move to force women into combat roles ignores In a move that reeks of political correctness, Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced Thursday that all combat positions in the U.S. military will now be open to women, with no exceptions. “They’ll be allowed to drive tanks, fire mortars and lead infantry soldiers into combat,” Carter declared. “They’ll be able to serve as Army rangers and green berets, Navy SEALs, Marine Corps infantry, Air Force parajumpers and everything else that was previously open only to men.” As the Center for Military Readiness (CMR) explains, Carter could only make...
