    ELVERUM, Norway — An explosion just a few feet away rocks the unmarked station wagon as it travels along a dirt road in the Norwegian woodland. Immediately, two soldiers jump from their front seats and run for cover behind the carcass of an old, rusty tank. Firing their weapons at targets along the snowcovered hillside, they call for support from the rest of their unit. This firefight is just a drill, but the soldiers taking part are battling to break down one of the final barriers to women serving in the armed forces. They are training to become part of...

    The Wicked Witch from Arkansas, or New York, or wherever she decides to hang her broom, still believes people care about what she has to say Hillary Clinton still believes she is somehow relevant in American Politics. I figured they understood that they, the Clinton Crime Family, had no more political pull or influence after her loss to Donald J. Trump, which was why the Clinton Foundation closed its doors shortly after Hillary realized she wasn’t a shoe-in for the White House, after all. How can you take money from wretched characters who want you to do their ill-will in...

    DEAR man on the street, I’m writing to ask for your help. As a female runner, I am constantly aware of my safety when I’m out on an evening run. What is behind me? Do I hear anything strange? Why is that man running towards me? What is making those bushes rustle? And I am always home before dark. Author Margaret Atwood said, “Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.” You may think that’s hyperbole, but I promise you, it’s not. Every woman I know has been in a situation at least...

    After the last Presidential deabte, WGN 9 News invited Brunell Donald-Kyei, a Chicago based lawyer who happens to be a black female who supports Donald Trump, on air to talk about her preferred candidate. Obviously looking to try and play their typical media games of discrediting Trump supporters, specifically those of us who are black, the WGN 9 anchors were left speechless after they discovered that they had bitten off far more than they could chew. In short, Brunell Donald-Kyei absolutely owned the interview, and the anchors, delivering an incredibly passionate and commonsense argument for her support of Trump. Check...

    EXCERPT Ed Klein: Here’s what I know, not my opinion. About 6:30 this morning she called an old friend. She was crying inconsolably. She couldn’t stop crying. And her friend, her female friend from way, way back said it was even hard to understand what she was saying she was crying so hard. This is Hillary we’re talking about. Eventually her friend said she could make out that she was blaming James Comey, the Director of the FBI, for her loss, and, I don’t understand exactly, the president of the United States for not doing enough.

    On Tuesday, 171 women across the United States and its territories are up for seats in the U.S. Congress. Of that group, 46 are running as Republicans. Just four are African-American. And one of those candidates is a Philadelphian. Deborah Williams, 47, a divorced mother of two, is a one-woman show, sans the political entourage, taking on the monolithic U.S. Rep Bob Brady, the nine-time representative of the 1st Congressional District and chairman of the Philadelphia Democratic Party. She’s aware of the reality.

    One of the most oft-heard claims made by supporters of Hillary Clinton is what a positive role model she would be for young girls as president. They say: "Then, my daughters will know that nothing is to too great for them to aspire to. A woman can indeed be president of the United States." So goes the argument. According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, women will vote for Clinton by 60 percent to 36 percent, a margin of 24 percent. In the last presidential election, the margin was 10 percent. If the polls are accurate concerning the lopsided female...

    Attorneys Tom O'Neal and Bryan Hoss said Monday that 26-year-old Madison Deal's death was caused by an attack by female inmates at the county workhouse and by inadequate medical care by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). District Attorney Neal Pinkston has asked for an investigation by the Sheriff's Office into the death of Ms. Deal. A spokesperson for the sheriff said a preliminary autopsy found the death was related to a medical problem and did not involve "physical trauma." The attorneys said, "On Wednesday, Aug. 10, Madison Deal, 26, of Chattanooga, turned herself into the Hamilton County Jail for...

    Pope Francis has lamented that children are being taught at school that gender can be a choice, adding that his predecessor, Benedict XVI has labeled current times 'the epoch of sin against God the Creator'. Francis weighed in with his view on gender and what he said was that of the emeritus pontiff while meeting privately last week with bishops from Poland during his pilgrimage there. The pope said he wanted to conclude his remarks by reflecting on this: 'We are living a moment of annihilation of man as image of God.' Francis said: 'Today, in schools they are teaching...

    US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has confirmed that there will be women on her shortlist for vice president, potentially making history if elected on an all-female ticket. The democrat politician's team confirmed, on 21 April, that women would make the cut, immediately leading to speculation about who the female candidate was, with liberal senator Elizabeth Warren's name coming up, although Clinton's campaign team did not put forward any names. Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, told the Boston Globe she wanted "the best person to make the case to the American people. "We'll start with a broad list and then begin...

    Speaking at an event for women in Los Angeles this week, Barbra Streisand complained that society is so misogynistic, even female laboratory mice are being discriminated against. "Gender discrimination drives me crazy," said the multiple Grammy and Academy award-winning actress and singer. "Women are still treated as second-class citizens when it comes to equal pay in the workplace and equal representation in Congress." [Snip] Streisand, who has made contributions toward heart disease research for nearly three decades, then spoke out about gender inequality in medical research. "Gender inequality even extends to mice in the labs," she said. "They're all male!"...
