The @TheIranDeal Twitter account — the official White House account for the deal — jumped into the meme-making craze for the N.W.A. film “Straight Outta Compton” after Buzzfeed called it “the most memetacular film of 2015.” The White Housereplied by saying, “@BuzzFeed And thanks to the #IranDeal, Iran will be …,” linking to a meme that read, “Straight Outta Uranium.” Buzzfeed responded to the tweet in an article titled “The White House just completely ruined the ‘Straight...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) In the fall of 2007, as Mike Huckabee was surging in the Iowa polls, Mitt Romney’s foundering presidential campaign dispatched a camera crew to Arkansas with the charge to produce one of the most brutal ads of the election cycle. The final product — a withering spot that tied Huckabee to a 2003 murder committed by a serial rapist who was paroled while he was governor of Arkansas — never saw the light of day. But the unaired ad, obtained this week by BuzzFeed News, highlights a potentially potent line of attack on Huckabee as he considers a 2016...

An entire article because of this picture, despite the fact that BuzzFeed readily admits it "does appear there are empty seats in the subway car:" How dare Hanks, writes the article's author, Alison Vingiano. "Hanks," Vingiano quips, "is probably not a frequent rider, however, because it doesn’t seem like he’s down with the MTA’s new rules...

If the Russian people do not buy their story, Putin loses the high “ratings” on which his regime rests. If he cannot convince his Western audience, Europe and the United States will take actions that spoil his Novorossiya ventures and threaten his regime.

The headline reads: “Illegal, secret, expensive, and incredibly scary. A 74-year-old grandmother tells her story.” Emphasis is original. Diana Weiner’s story is personal and in many ways does seem “incredibly scary.” The piece fails to distinguish though how an abortion today is necessary different from those things.

    Our English-speaking media were very clear after the 2012 election that the Republican Party was demographically doomed, since all the voters "of color" were shifting toward President Barack Obama and the Democrats. They echoed the mantra of GOP moderates, stating the only way to political viability was through "comprehensive immigration reform." What these analysts did not do was explore the messaging Hispanic voters are getting from Spanish-language media. Has the conservative message been rejected by Spanish-language voters -- or is something being kept from them? We've seen a disturbing set of reports on how hand in glove these Spanish networks...

The funding was approved as part of the 2014 list of state-subsidized medical items, and expands coverage for women who were previously eligible for state-funded abortions only in the case of a medical emergency or sexual abuse. Women under 20 and over 40 are already eligible for state-funded abortions regardless of circumstance. The new rule will allow for 6,300 more women to have abortions next year.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 3, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A committee has recommended that Israel expand its national funding for abortion, as well as access – giving “free” abortions to women aged 20 to 33. The recommendations are likely to be made law in 2014, thus expanding the number of abortions in the Middle Eastern state by 6,300 – and costing taxpayers $4.5 million. Current Israeli law allows abortion in almost any case, and the government pays for abortions for women under 18 and for medical reasons. Women under 20 and over 40 can have government-funded abortions under special circumstances, and women...

    WASHINGTON — Israel adopted this week one of the most liberal abortion laws in the world, and will now provide government funding for non-medical abortions for Israeli women aged 20 to 33. But Washington’s most anti-abortion lawmakers are largely silent on the new policy. These same members of Congress are also some of Israel’s loudest defenders, highlighting a peculiar aspect of the relationship between many of Israel’s ardent U.S. supporters and Israel’s domestic political landscape. Last month, a health ministry panel in Israel recommended the state pay for the abortions of women aged 20 to 33, including non-medical abortions. The...
