    An pro-government commander in Afghanistan has been killed in a battle against a group of Taliban fighters that included his own son. The battle also involved two Afghan brothers who fought on opposite sides – a pro-government militia fighter who was killed and his brother, a Taliban militant, who was wounded and escaped from the battlefield. The overnight battle in Afghanistan's northern province of Jowzjan took place just hours after the slain commander, Baz Muhammad, spoke to RFE/RL about the need to end a war which pits "sons against fathers and brothers and against brothers." Baz Muhammad's involvement in the...

    FULL TITLE: Missing fathers and America's broken boys - the vast majority of mass shooters come from broken homes My most recent article about the Parkland school shooting and its connection to fatherlessness prompted a tsunami of emails. In one of those emails, a man named Fritz asked what I considered to be the root of fatherlessness. I decided to write a follow-up article to answer that question. The subject of “The Desperate Cry of America’s Boys” is a difficult one. To point out that boys need their fathers is to shine a spotlight on divorce and single mothers; and...

    There’s an old chestnut about dads that’s often — and questionably — attributed to Mark Twain, and it goes like this: When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. A dad occupies an interesting cycle in our lives doesn’t he? When we are little, he’s our hero, a giant holding us on his shoulders so we can suddenly see the world as if it isn’t...

    By Garrett Fahy & Sara J. FahyOslo, Norway - They’re everywhere, they’re handling everything, and they’re loving it. Pushing the strollers. Carrying the kids on their shoulders. Taking the daughters to brunch. Shepherding a gaggle of excited little ones down a parade route on an unseasonably hot May 17th Norwegian Constitution Day. We’re talking about Oslo’s fathers. They’re on daddy daycare and fashionably making it look easy. But two obvious questions occur: where are the mothers? And, what is Norway doing to convince and prepare its fathers to run the kid show? On the first question, the mothers are around,...

    The Green New Deal is a bold and controversial legislative initiative proposed by the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, designed to address four pressing challenges facing American society that have thus far eluded solution. They are: reforming our extremely expensive and inefficient health care system; reducing our currently unprecedented levels of economic inequality; rebuilding our aging infrastructure; and recovering our global leadership role to combat the existential threat posed by climate change. If we fail to address and resolve these problems, all talk of America as a "city on a hill" needs to cease.

    I came across Dr. Warren Farrell's work a few years ago, when I read Why Men Earn More ( ), a careful study of the many reasons for the existence of the "gender pay gap," attributed by ideologues of the identity-politics persuasion to systemic patriarchal prejudice and oppression. Farrell has recently published another book, The Boy Crisis ( ) with Dr. John Gray. We spent an intense 90 minutes discussing the crucial role played by fathers in child development, paying particular attention to play and delay of gratification. Dr. Farrell has been a target of radical left activists, who object...

    The Fiancé A young woman brought her fiancé home to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother told the girl's father to find out about the young man. "I am a biblical scholar," he replied. "A biblical scholar, hmmm?" the father said. "Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in?" "I will study," the young man replied, "and God will provide for us." "And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?" asked the father. "I will concentrate on my studies," the young man replied, "God...

    Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad Freepers! Here is a great short article about the MOST important words a dad can say to his children....hope this will be a blessing to you this day..... “Watch me, dad. Watch me.” There are few imperatives a father hears more often from his children than “watch me.” It’s a plea for us to recognize that whatever our son or daughter is doing—catching a ball, jumping off a diving board—is worthy of our full attention. They know we are often busy, often distracted, and they want, at least for a moment, for us...
  • The Racism Liberals Don't Recognize -- Their Own

    Commentators, almost always from the right, have documented liberal media bias for many years now. And the response by the perpetrators of this bias has been both constant and predictable: Circle the wagons and blame the accusers. Accuse us of bias for seeing their bias. The bias we've been talking and writing about is usually about partisan politics and hot social issues like abortion. But there's one kind of liberal media bias that hasn't gotten much attention. It's a bias that liberals both in and out of the media often attach to conservatives, but almost never to themselves. It's racial...

    CANADA, January 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – “Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision,” a feminist wrote for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in an article trashing "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines for having a fifth child. “It's not an exaggeration to say that the survival of our species depends” on population control, Kristen Pyszczyk wrote. Even though population control “carries with it associations with eugenics and other nasty historical events...we still need to talk about it.” The Gaines couple of HGTV fame announced the existence of their fifth child by posting a...

She delights in being the apple of Daddy’s eye. If she does...
  • At the cellular level, a child’s loss of a father is associated with increased stress

    08/25/2017 3:55:42 PM PDT · by PROCON · 3 replies
    The absence of a father — due to incarceration, death, separation or divorce — has adverse physical and behavioral consequences for a growing child. But little is known about the biological processes that underlie this link between father loss and child well-being. In a study (link is external) published July 18 in the journal Pediatrics, a team of FFCWS researchers report that the loss of a father has a significant adverse effect on telomeres, the protective nucleoprotein end caps of chromosomes. At 9 years of age, children who had lost their father had significantly shorter telomeres — 14 percent...
  • In Arkansas, Women Must Now Get A Man's Permission Before An Abortion

    Konbini ^ | 7/10/2017 | Kimberly B. Johnson
    In Arkansas, women are now required to get permission from men before going through with abortion services. The law is a provision of recently passed bill H.B. 1566 which states that in the matter of a person’s death, family members must all agree on what to do with the deceased person’s body. So, how do women and their bodies play into this at all? Arkansas legislators decided to include aborted fetuses into the Act, meaning both the mother and the father of the fetus must agree on what to do with the fetal remains. This essentially requires a woman to...
