  • New York Times scraps 'female genital mutilation' for being 'culturally loaded' term

    04/24/2017 6:45:24 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 66 replies
    A top New York Times editor decided the paper shouldn’t use the term “female genital mutilation” because the phrase is too “culturally loaded” and widens a divide between the Western world and “people who follow the rite.” Health and Science editor Celia Dugger said she came to the conclusion to refer to the act of removing the female genitalia of young girls as “genital cutting” during a trip to Africa in the 1990s. She spoke about her decision in a Times mailbag article in response to a reader’s question. “I never minced words in describing exactly what form of cutting...
  • President Obama Says Photos of High School Drug Use Might Have Derailed Political Rise

    Washington Times ^ | - Monday, April 24, 2017 | By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times
    Former President Obama said Monday that if his checkered pre-politics life had taken place in today’s social media oversaturated world, he might not have been able to win the White House. He repeated stories about his own drug use in his younger days, saying that marijuana use was “what teenage kids did at that age when I was growing up.” And while he wrote about those experiences in his book, he acknowledged that if that behavior had been documented more thoroughly it might have derailed his political career. “If you had pictures of everything I’d done when I was in...
  • Director Rob Reiner: Russian Meddling Is ‘Greatest Attack’ on Democracy Since Pearl Harbor

    Liberal activist and Hollywood director Rob Reiner slammed President Donald Trump on Monday and suggested that Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election was the "greatest attack" on American democracy since Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. "We've had the greatest attack of this democracy since 1941, and we have to understand that," Reiner said on MSNBC. Reiner also suggested that American society might collapse given the pressure Russia placed on democratic institutions in the country. Japan drew the United States into World War II after attacking its naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, killing...

    Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos couldn’t hide his surprise at his own network’s poll results, during Monday’s show. The ABC News/Washington Post poll over the weekend revealed positive numbers for the President, going against the media’s negative narrative that supporters had abandoned Trump. Not only that, but the poll revealed Trump would win the election again, if it were taken today. A flabbergasted Stephanopoulos admitted he was surprised by the results, in two different segments on today’s show. In the first report by White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl, ABC led with Trump’s low approval ratings among the general population....

    Just as the news media missed the boat in predicting the outcome of the 2016 election, their behavior in 2017 have shown they’ve learned absolutely nothing. On Monday’s Morning Joe, the MSNBC panel was flabbergasted that the new ABC News/Washington Post poll found only two percent of President Trump’s voters regret voting for him. Floored by the “remarkable number,” the liberals and pseudo-Republicans attempted to explain away the number and infer that it was much higher because Trump voters wouldn’t be forthcoming with pollsters. Co-host Joe Scarborough kicked things off, telling panelist Mark Halperin: But when I saw in the...
  • Doctor's arrest brings attention to US female circumcisions

    DETROIT (AP) — Zehra Patwa learned only a few years ago that during a family trip to India at age 7, she was circumcised, which is common for girls in parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Patwa, 46, doesn't remember undergoing the procedure, which is also called female genital mutilation or cutting and which has been condemned by the United Nations and outlawed in the U.S. But she doesn't want to. "I have no desire to get that memory back. ... Psychologically, it feels like a violation, even though I don't remember it," said Patwa, a technology project...

  • Senate leader investigating possible FBI deception about Texas terror attack

    A powerful U.S. senator has launched an investigation into whether the FBI knew about a planned attack by ISIS-inspired terrorists at an anti-Muslim cartoon show in the Dallas area and did nothing to stop it -- and also misled the lawmaker about circumstances of the 2015 attack. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said he learned from a recent national media report that the FBI was tailing the two terrorists, Elton Simpson, 31, and Nadir Soofi, 34, and an agent was just steps away when the pair jumped from their car and began...

    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski used a portion of an interview with former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett to pine for the days that Barack Obama was the head of the Democratic Party. "Could you do a favor for me?" Brzezinski said at the end of her interview that aired Thursday morning. "Could you ask President Obama something for me? Could he come back and save the party and tell them what to do?" Jarrett laughed and said that Obama right now is working to find "the Barack Obama 2.0s" and a new generation of leaders to take his place. Jarrett...

    It seems like a week doesn't pass where I don't see something about tiny houses on my timeline. As a reaction to both the disastrous Obama economy and the climate change hysteria, people -- generally Brooklyn-style hipsters -- are building and living in comically small houses. You'd think an ever-smaller "carbon footprint" would be a hit across the Left, but we all know by now that nothing is ever good enough for the Social Justice Warrior. Because silly houses have apparently become "poverty appropriation." That's right -- your goofy home could HURT SOMEONE'S FEELINGS: This background, this essential part of...
  • #Free BBQ — Taunt a Hunger Striking Terrorist Today

    img src="http://www.jewishpress.com/wp-content/uploads/BBQ-outside-Ofer-Prison-696x696.jpeg"> Starting at 12 PM today, Thursday, April 20, 2017, “Young National Union” (Ichud Leumi) activists are hosting a FREE BBQ outside the Ofer Prison, on Road 443 just outside of Jerusalem. Grilling the food just outside the prison walls, the delicious smell wafts through the prison… and their intention is to taunt the convicted PA terrorists who are hunger-striking to receive 5-star accommodations and privileges. PA terrorists imprisoned in Israeli jails started a “hunger strike” in protest to Israel’s decision to reduce security prisoner privileges — such as no longer being able to receive FREE (paid for by...

    For all the roiling anger and energy at the grass roots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren't promising. As it became clear late Tuesday evening that Jon Ossoff would fall just short of the 50-percent mark in the first round of voting in a suburban Atlanta special election, Democrats back in Washington started leafing through their calendars and asking: When does the winning start? Ossoff’s 'moral victory' — capturing 48 percent of the vote in a conservative-oriented district — was welcome, but after two successive close-but-no-cigar finishes in House special...

    Is Joy Reid going to rap DNC Chairman Tom Perez on the knuckles for failure to abide by her anointed nomenclature? As we noted this past weekend, MSNBC host Reid reprimanded Republican Katon Dawson for speaking of the “Democrat” party. She warned Dawson that “we’re going to have a talking-to,” she instructed him, “we say ‘Democratic’ on this show.” Perez appeared on Morning Joe and CNN this morning to discuss yesterday’s congressional primary in Georgia. And—ruh-roh—Perez twice spoke of the “Democrat” party! On Morning Joe, he said, “we’re building a Democrat National Committee whose mission is not simply to elect...

    The Huffington Post’s recent publication of a blog post proposing stripping white men of their right to vote sparked widespread anger across social media. The editors initially defended the piece, titled “Could It be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?” They even crowed about how much traffic it was getting and mocked readers for complaining, before suddenly reversing their decision and deleting the post over the weekend.

    Ahh, so cute, rubbing shoulders with their celebrity friends, Tom Hanks and Bruce Springsteen no less, and on Geffen's boat! How could we get through the day without knowing where this poser was spending his exile. His only lasting effect on the office of the President of the United States was to continue Billy Boy Clinton's soiree into the world of the celebrity president. Lot's of stars at the White House, surely makes for good political policy. All he wants is to be rich and famous and all he is, is inconsequential; which will become more and more obvious as...
