  • GOP: Respect Women or Keep Losing [FLASHBACK]

    The Daily Beast ^ | November 8, 2012 | by Kirsten Powers
    The verdict is in: the Democrats’ "War on Women" drumbeat, with a healthy assist from a few knuckle-dragger GOP Senate candidates, helped win the election for Barack Obama. On Tuesday, the electorate turned out once again to be more female than male, by the same 6-point margin as in 2008. Nationally, the ladies overwhelmingly preferred President Obama, 55 to 44 percent. GOP, you have a problem. The media treated the “War on Women” as being primarily about reproductive issues, but not so the Obama campaign. Team Obama knew that the issue that women cared about the most was the economy,...

    On Sunday, July 2, President Trump tweeted out a meme of himself wrestling WWE Chairman Vince McMahon with the CNN logo over his face. That same day, CNN’s Brian Stelter took to his show Reliable Sources where he and his panel of liberal reporters decried Trump as “dangerous” and a “fascists.” A full week later, Stelter and another stacked panel of journalists were defending CNN’s legally questionable tactics of tracking down the meme creator and threating to reveal his identity. In addition to that, they slammed the outlet’s critics and conflated them with those sending threats of violence to journalists....

    Political pundit Kirsten Powers appeared on CNN late Wednesday to discuss Bill O’Reilly’s departure from the Fox News network amid sexual harassment claims levied against him. Powers told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that she had her own personal experience with O’Reilly, in which O’Reilly made remarks that many would have considered to be overtly sexist. “I was thinking about an incident that had happened early on in my career there where I was on-air there with Margaret Hoover, who’s at CNN now, on a regular segment, we were on every Monday,” Powers said. “And he got Margaret’s name wrong, and Margaret...

    Kirsten Powers, a regular on Fox News for the past decade, is switching channels. Powers is joining CNN as a political analyst, effective immediately, CNN announced Monday morning. She will continue to write columns for USA Today. Her first appearance will be on "Anderson Cooper 360" Monday night. Powers is the fourth Fox personality hired by CNN in the past 18 months, joining co-host Alisyn Camerota, liberal commentator Bob Beckel and conservative commentator Mary Katharine Ham. The timing of her move is newsworthy because it comes one month after the founding CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes, resigned under pressure...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers explained why it was her view that former President Bill Clinton’s past being raised in this presidential campaign could be a problem for Hillary Clinton’s bid. According to Powers, the Bill Cosby situation shows that attitudes across the country have changed about allegations of rape and that could be problematic for Hillary Clinton’s bid. “I think that what was once referred to as Bill Clinton’s bimbo eruptions, which now sounds like something that people wouldn’t say today, are going to become problems for Hillary during the campaign,”...

    She worked for the Clinton administration, became a liberal pundit for the Daily Beast and a regular Democratic contributor to Fox News. On top of that, all her friends were agnostics or atheists. So when God pursued and won her reluctant heart, she was more surprised than anyone else. "If there was one thing in which I was completely secure, it was that I would never adhere to any religion-especially to evangelical Christianity, which I held in particular contempt," writes Kirsten Powers, in a first-person account of her conversion published in Christianity Today. The daughter of archeologist parents, she attended...

    Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers take on the leftist establishment Democrats are known for many things, but chief among them is the relentless determination to maintain a rigid progressive orthodoxy within their ranks. Bucking that orthodoxy requires character and conviction because those who do can expect a certain level of contempt directed their way from their oh-so-tolerant brethren. Campbell Brown and Kirsten Powers are two women who have demonstrated a willingness to take positions decidedly at odds with the progressive establishment. Brown’s Democratic roots can be traced back to her father, Louisiana Democratic State Senator and Secretary of State James...

    Rally in front of Planned Parenthood in Columbia, Mo., on July 28, 2015. Democrats like to talk about the importance of being on the “right side of history.”...Yet when faced with a series of videos detailing grotesque human rights abuses against unborn children by Planned Parenthood doctors, Democratic Party forces have eschewed all concern for historical or moral rightness. Pope Francis has correctly described the unborn as “the most defenseless and innocent among us.” But in the sordid tale of strategic crushing of the unborn to better harvest their hearts, lungs and livers, many Democrats have incredibly cast an...

    I recently had the pleasure of interviewing liberal Kirsten Powers for C-SPAN about her new book, The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech, which takes on what she calls the “illiberal left” for using bullying, intimidation and political correctness to silence opinions that differ with their own. Really, she is criticizing the unAmerican and unconstitutional trend–whether by liberals or conservatives–to censor all opinions with which they disagree. She has amazing stories of the happenings on college campuses with kids being given “trigger” warnings on books and articles that might offend their sensitivities or give them PTSD by evoking...

    Columnist and Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers' new book, "The Silencing: How the Left Is Killing Free Speech," links her snugly to the cause of unfettered thought and expression -- important for conservatives, certainly but also for non-conservatives. As it should be for any American, come to think of it, as the "progressive" left pounds and pulverizes anyone of differing mind and purpose. The politicization of almost everything has put at some risk, in the most talkative of ages, the broadly assumed right of First Amendment-cherishing Americans to speak their pieces. "The illiberal left," says Powers, "... believes that people...

    RUSH: Now, I mentioned a couple of books. You know, Zev Chafets has written a mini-biography of me in a New York Times Sunday magazine profile of me, and he's also put together a book of conservative commencement addresses. It's based on the fact that conservatives are not asked to give commencement addresses. They just are frozen out. Some have. He's compiled them. He went to a bunch of high-powered conservatives and asked for permission to reprint their commencement addresses. I have not given a major college commencement address. I have at a couple of high schools. He said, "But...

    In a stunning slap at her team, liberal pundit Kirsten Powers is charging in a new book that the left is so intolerant of alternative views that it will use sexist and even racist language to shout down women and blacks who don't champion Democratic causes. Kirsten Powers, a USA Today and Daily Beast columnist and designated "liberal" on Fox, confessed in her new book that the left aggressively tries to "silence people" who don't fall into the liberal line. In The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech, she calls out the lefty tactics, especially how they belittle...

    In March 2014, pioneering Internet company Mozilla announced the appointment of co-founder Brendan Eich as CEO. That same day, a Twitter mob exploded with criticism of Eich. Gay rights supporters were angry about a 6-year-old donation of $1,000 to the “Yes on 8” campaign, which sought to ban same-sex marriage in California in 2008. It’s OK to be angry about Eich’s donation. Screaming for Eich’s head on a pike for his failure to conform to Mozilla’s majority view on same-sex marriage is not. Liberals are supposed to believe in protecting minority views, even when they disapprove of those views. Instead...

    There’s much talk about free speech, and the right to it. Now comes a major book explaining who and what is eroding this most basic tenet. Out Monday, it’s “The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech” by Kirsten Powers, a lifelong liberal and daughter of a feminist who converted to Christianity as an adult and is now a frequent contributor to Fox News. She points out that leftist methodology is to simply shut down public debate with the help of a compliant liberal news media and a secular culture — while squawking about tolerance and values. “It’s easier...

    On October 3, on the Fox News program Outnumbered, Kirsten Powers said she was very surprised that the vomitus and feces of Liberian national Thomas Duncan were not immediately cleaned up, but remained in an apartment complex in the Dallas area for about 10 days. She said, in effect, surely there are people standing ready in the United States to clean up immigrants’ lethal bodily fluids. Thomas Duncan is not to blame for the crisis of viruses popping up across the United States – the politics of Kirsten Powers are to blame. In her widely read articles and statements, Ms....

Who was the worst of those three on competence issues? KIRSTEN POWERS: Clinton was the most competent, obviously. And then, I don't -- you know, Carter, I was a child, so I didn't live through that. So I don't know if I have as much as a sense of that and I also have a little affection for him because of his human rights work... It is...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)On Thursday’s “Outnumbered” on the Fox News Channel, panelists Tucker Carlson and Kirsten Powers had a heated exchange over the ongoing border crisis and whether or not it was this country’s so-called Christian duty to grant those unaccompanied minors entering the United States asylum. Carlson questioned Powers’ suggestion as it being the Christian obligation of the country to accept these minors into the United States. He argued that it wasn’t “Christian” to shirk those cost onto the American people through the use of their tax dollars and called out church groups encouraging those fleeing Central American countries to seek government...
