    It didn’t take long at Friday’s impeachment hearing before Rep. Elise Stefanik, the House Intelligence Committee’s only Republican woman, was gaveled down by the panel’s Democratic chairman. Republicans kept the 35-year-old Harvard graduate from upstate New York in the spotlight all day. Among other things, they gave her a prominent slot to question the day’s witness, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, even though Stefanik ranks only seventh among the committee’s nine Republicans. “We know clearly you’re going to interrupt us throughout this hearing,” Stefanik complained within minutes of Friday’s opening gavel. Though she was breaking committee rules with...
  • Dems cared about sexual politics a few months ago. Now they want Fairfax's accuser to shut up

    We have still more news to bring you from that chaotic developing nation formerly known as the Commonwealth of Virginia. As of Wednesday night, Virginia's three highest ranking public officials, all of them Democrats, are embroiled in potentially career-ending scandals, and it seemed to come out of nowhere just last week. First, you'll remember, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam casually endorsed infanticide while defending a Democratic bill to legalize abortion right up to the minute of birth. Then just hours after he said that, a little over a day, I think, Northam was found to have a picture of man wearing...

    Humorist and long-time radio host Garrison Keillor, of A Prairie Home Companion fame, says he might have to move out of the country after being ousted from the Minnesota Public Radio for inappropriate behavior. Keillor, the 75-year-old veteran broadcaster who is married, confirmed his firing on Wednesday, claiming that it stemmed from an incident from years earlier in which he says he accidentally touched an acquaintance’s bare back while attempting to console her. Keillor later took to Facebook, bemoaning his downfall after five decades of ‘hard work’ and lamenting that he was feeling ostracized everywhere he went. The post has...

    Left-wing writers are taking the victim narrative to a new level this week, decrying “straight black men” as the “white people of black people.” In a column for The Root's “Very Smart Brothas,” writer Damon Young accused straight black men of having the “type of privilege created for and protected by whiteness.” Black men, while victims of the white man's oppressiveness, are the oppressors of the nonheterosexual/male black person.

    Some girls at La Guardia HS of Music & Art and Performing Arts were not amused that a boy stole their stiletto-heeled thunder and became this year’s prom queen — and their claws have come out on social ­media. “I know I go to LaGuardia because a boy won prom queen,” snarked Asia Pierre in a Facebook post that attracted 500 homophobic comments and 100 shares before it was removed. “It just sucks that men win everything and we thought we at least deserve that,” wrote a classmate under the name Taj Mahal. Matthew Crisson, an 18-year-old Staten Islander who self-identifies...

In a letter hand delivered to McCrory on Friday, PepsiCo head Indra Nooyi called the law inconsistent with how her company treats its employees. …

    In the space of barely a week, Palestinian Arab terrorists have singled out and stabbed Israeli women in three different cities, murdering two and wounding two others. There's no point in mincing words: this is a Palestinian "War on Women." [...] Women's rights groups around the world should be outraged. Feminists should be picketing the Palestinian Authority's offices. Anyone who is genuinely concerned about "wars on women" at least should be issuing angry press releases about the Palestinians' war on women. But they won't. Just as they were silent every previous time that Palestinian Arab terrorists have waged war on...

    1) Polls show that, by a large margin, Americans feel we're on the wrong track, both economically and as to foreign policy. Yet none of you offers any criticism of President Barack Obama, who has been in charge for the last seven years. Why, then, should Americans believe that four more years, under your leadership, would be any different from the last seven? 2) Sen. Sanders, you've called for a $15-per-hour minimum wage. But even Vice President Joe Biden's economist, Jared Bernstein, considers a $15 hourly rate so high that it would cause an unacceptable loss of jobs. Is he...

    On her fledgling, and embarrassingly low-tech, network, Sarah Palin interviewed Donald Trump, and managed a feat no journalist has yet. She made it boring.As in-focus civilians flowed up the Trump Tower taking selfies in the background, an inexplicably out-of-focus Donald Trump sought to explain his rising poll numbers on Sarah Palin’s janky new program on an unknown right-wing news network. “We’re bringing back—I use the term again, (as) it hasn’t been used in a long time—the silent majority,” he told Palin at the tail-end of her 10 p.m. newscast, On Point with Sarah Palin, on Friday night. Of course, Donald...

    On August 13 Florida League of Women Voters (FLWV) Gun Safety Committee chair Patti Brigham will hold a conference for leaders who oppose arming women and other law-abiding citizens on college campuses for self-defense. Brigham’s conference comes as Florida state senator Greg Evers (R-Baker) and representative Greg Steube (R-Sarasota) prepare to renew their push for women with concealed carry permits to be able to carry guns on college campuses for self-defense. Evers and Stuebe both offered bills that would have allowed women to arm themselves in 2015, and both bills were defeated by opposition from gun control groups geared toward...

    There were 56,085,000 women 16 or older who did not participate in the nation’s labor force in June, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 56.7 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This means that 56,085,000 women did not have a job or actively seek one in the past four weeks. The civilian labor force, which consists of all people in the civilian noninstitutional population who either had a job during the month or actively sought a job declined in June to 73,547,000 from the 73,577,000 in the labor force in May. …

    It was just a few weeks ago when Black gangs were being praised by clergy and authorities in Baltimore for doing a better job than police of keeping the peace in the wake of the Freddie Gray riots. Since then the murder rate has skyrocketed as criminals have free rein in Baltimore as police, in response to being demonized by elected officials and the community, have held back from aggressively enforcing the law. Last Sunday morning, two reputed members of the Black gang the Bloods horrifically raped and murdered a sixteen year-old Black girl in the basement of her...

    … In the hands of Islamic State there are now 5,000 women, mostly belonging to the Yazidi syncretistic minority. If you change country and go to Nigeria, the situation is the same. Now it is the turn of “Chibok girls” who unleashed Twitter’s mobilization of the first lady, Michelle Obama. Most of these girls have been raped and are now pregnant. Even the corrupt United Nations has spoken, while the Western feminists keep silent. This is the revolting double standard of Western feminists, who are always ready to denounce the “homophobic” Christians, sexism on the US campus or the Israeli...

    On a recent bright spring morning, students admitted to the Barnard College Class of 2019 gathered on campus. As blue-and-white balloons fluttered in the breeze, the prospective freshmen attended panels and lunched on the lawn, chatting animatedly with current students. There were, of course, young women from a variety of backgrounds, but at least one category wasn’t included: transgender women. Barnard, like other women’s colleges, has traditionally admitted only students born female. But that might be changing. Next week, Barnard’s trustees are expected to vote on an issue that has arrived loudly and emphatically on the front burner for women’s...

    The Clinton Foundation will continue to accept donations from foreign countries—but not from Saudi Arabia, donations from which have set off an embarrassing protest movement against newly-declared Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Clinton resigned from the Foundation’s Board of Directors last week as protests mounted in the media and on the campaign trail over the family foundation’s acceptance of donations from Saudi Arabia, which denies women many of the rights Clinton and the foundation claim to stand for. …

    Chelsea Clinton has given an interview about life in the public eye, being a new mother and her hope that the US one day elects a female president. While she stops short of naming a potential runner there can be little doubt – given the timing of her comments – about who she means. It is no secret that her mother, Hillary, is due to announce her run for the White House on Sunday. Ms Clinton told Elle magazine: “One of our core values in this country is that we are the land of equal opportunity, but when equal hasn't...

    A Michigan woman's gym membership was revoked because she refused to stop complaining about a transgender patron. According to Michigan Live, the incident started when a Planet Fitness member named Yvette Cormier went to use the women's gym's locker room at the Midland location. "I was blocked, because a man was standing there," Cormier told Michigan Live. "It freaked me out because why is a man in here?" Cormier sought out a gym employee to complain, but was told that members are allowed to use whatever locker room they want to, based on the gender they identify themselves as, ABC...
