In a July 20 Fox News Special Report , Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume “laid bare the essentially brutal nature of abortion.” And he did it well. His commanding denouncement of the industry followed the July 14 release of “stomach-turning” Planned Parenthood videos , which showed officials coolly discussing the traffic of fetal body parts while eating lunch. “Those revelations … have parted the veil of antiseptic tidiness behind which the abortion industry has for so long operated,” Hume declared. “Let’s be blunt,” he continued. “Abortion involves the extraction and killing of a human life, which within a couple of... continue reading
One America News Network host Tomi Lahren had a few choice words for President Barack Obama in response to the killing of four marines in Chattanooga: “be a leader.” In doing so, she clearly touched a nerve with many Americans. At the end of her program last week , Lahren slammed Obama for being “more concerned with Muslim sensitivity than the honor and sacrifice made by these marines.” Obama, speaking in response to the shooting, completely passed over the potential connection between the shooting and radical Islam. According to Lahren, “Radical Islam is becoming the rule, not the exception. Yesterday’s... continue reading
William Baude, an assistant law professor at the University of Chicago, has a rare quality these days. He’s logical. In an opinion piece written for the New York Times , Baude suggested that, following the Obergefell ruling discovering a right to gay ‘marriage,’ “there is a very good argument” that “polyamorous relationships should be next.” SCOTUS’s majority opinion “did not focus primarily on the issue of sexual orientation,” he wrote. “Instead, its main focus was on a ‘fundamental right to marry.’” Thus, the professor questioned: “is there any magic power in the number two?” After all, marriage used to be... continue reading
“After much soul-searching” and “an ocean of red wine,” Michael Sonmore became a eunuch, er, feminist. The defining moment? When Sonmore realized that his wife’s desire for an open marriage was not a rejection of him, but the “embracing” of herself. That’s right, #HeForShe! “Monogamy meant I controlled her sexual expression,” Sonmore reflected in NY Mag . “Not to get all women’s-studies major about it,” but “patriarchal oppression essentially boils down to a man’s fear that a woman with sexual agency is a woman he can’t control.” Blech. Apparently, our culture labels a woman who “only likes sex with her... continue reading
It’s one thing that GOP hopefuls and at least one mainstream reporter can agree on: President Obama’s Iran nuke deal needs more pushback and less celebration. That’s not something the liberal media is going to give him, though. The networks have lauded the “history-making deal” and Obama’s “spirited defense” of it. CBS News reporter Major Garrett bucked the trend at a press conference yesterday where he grilled the President on why he was ignoring the four American hostages still in Iran. Obama clearly bristled and liberals at CNN and even at his own network gave Garrett flak. MAJOR GARRETT: “As... continue reading
Another unconscionable skeleton was recently discovered in Planned Parenthood’s closet thanks to undercover video. The Center for Medical Progress released that video on July 14, 2015, exposing a Planned Parenthood executive explaining how the organization sells organs from aborted babies. The major abortion provider not only relies on taxpayer dollars, it is well funded by prominent liberals. One of them is Berkshire Hathaway Chairman & CEO Warren Buffett, who is a long-time supporter of abortion groups, including Planned Parenthood . He gave Planned Parenthood hundreds of millions of dollars between 2001 and 2012 and upped his giving in 2013. Between... continue reading
Feminism is constantly evolving. It started with land ownership, then the right to vote and somehow made it to free-for-all abortion rights and dying your armpit hair. Wait, what? Here are five absurd demands feminists have made to make their cause a laughing stock. 1. #Freethepits! Do you remember how modern feminists complained about the “stereotypes” of feminists of yore not shaving their body hair? Well that supposed myth is certainly making a comeback now. The New York Times devoted Tuesday’s Fashion & Style section to the “Women who dye their armpit hair.” The Times even described how to do... continue reading
According to a recent article in The Washington Post , Fusion , , Mic , Vocativ and Upworthy are not your parents’ news sources. In other words, instead of pretending to be objective (like The Post sometimes does), they are blatantly biased and proud of it. According to Mic’s editor in chief, young people “are hungry for a newer style of news,” seeing the world quite differently from older readers. So, in order to cater to the newsy needs of millennials, Mic and other rising digital media outlets focus on the environment, drugs, technology, romance and LGBT issues. Fusion’s... continue reading
During an interview following her July 11 Wimbledon victory, a radiant Serena Williams pointed to the sky and declared: “I have to give thanks to Jehovah God for today. I just really relied on His strength.” Religion News Service (RNS) had anticipated her words in the July 10 article , “Serena Williams' Secret Weapon: ‘Jehovah God.’” The story focused positively on the tennis star’s devotion and her views as a Jehovah’s Witness. The piece stood in sharp contrast to the often derogatory media treatment of Christian athletes like Tim Tebow and Russell Wilson . “For Williams,” Kimberly Winston of RNS... continue reading
Proponents of renewable energy will grab on to any sign of success. That’s precisely what The Guardian (UK) did on July 10, when it ran a misleading headline claiming, “ Wind power generates 140% of Denmark's electricity demand .” The idea presented by the headline, was far from accurate, but the hype was no surprise. The Guardian long ago abandoned objectivity on energy issues in favor of climate alarmism and activism. It actively opposes fossil fuels use with the ongoing #KeepItInTheGround campaign. The article by Europe environment correspondent Arthur Neslen made it sound like Denmark had fulfilled all its energy... continue reading
