    After the latest bombshell, Congressmen and Senators are calling for the Clinton email scandal to be re-opened! Yesterday, the Trump administration quietly released even more of Hillary Clinton's previously-unreleased emails and it includes a bombshell. There is now (concrete evidence) that Hillary Clinton emailed classified information to people outside of the government and asked them to print out a hard copy for her and Bill. This is one of the emails that the Obama administration tried to hide. In it, Hillary Clinton is seen forwarding 2-3 pages worth of classified information to Doug Band. If that name sounds familiar, he...

Former Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas took to Twitter on Thursday night to voice his disapproval, tweeting: “For once, @JoeBiden and I agree: he doesn’t deserve this honor.”

    NBC's Matt Lauer says he was reduced to tears when he watched President Obama surprise Vice President Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Thursday. "I'm glad there were no cameras in my apartment yesterday because I was just sitting there weeping ... I just burst out crying when I saw that moment. It was incredible,” Lauer, who recently signed a reported $20 million per year contract extension through 2018, said Friday on "Today." The waterworks were on for Biden himself as well on Thursday when Obama shocked his vice president with the Medal of Freedom. Biden had to...

    Family members of recipients and senior Obama administration officials surrounded the stage where the honorees sat, laughing as the president discussed the most notable accomplishments of each honoree. "Ellen counters what too often divides us," Obama said of DeGeneres, a gay comedian who he commended for coming out on such a public stage nearly 20 years ago. The president recognized NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabber for standing up for his Muslim faith "when it wasn't easy and it wasn't popular."

    Comedian Ellen DeGeneres was praised by the US president for her influence on the gay rights movement as she received the country's highest civilian honour. Celebrities including Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and Michael Jordan were also among the 21 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Barack Obama said it was easy to forget the risk Ellen De Generes took to come out as gay in 1997. He said her bravery helped "push our country in the direction of justice". "It's easy to forget now, when we've come so far... just how much courage was required for Ellen to...

    Fully sixteen years after the State of Texas began honoring its military heroes with the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor, the most decorated combat soldier of World War II was finally recognized by Governor Rick Perry and the Texas legislature. Born in the Lone Star State in 1924, the 5'6", 130lb Audie Leon Murphy was told he was too small to make it in the Navy or the US Marines. So the baby-faced, underaged Texan enlisted in the Army and in early 1942 was shipped to North Africa as part of the Third Infantry Division. And in 3 years of...

    Gloria Steinem doesn’t have her facts straight, but don’t expect the media to call her out on it. On Tuesday, feminist activist Gloria Steinem appeared as a guest on PBS’ Tavis Smiley. During the show, Steinem praised abortion for giving her “my life” and bashed the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood’s practice of aborted baby parts. She blamed the “attack” on Planned Parenthood on everything from the “ultra-right wing” to “patriarchy” and a “long-term racist system.” Host Tavis Smiley hailed Steinem as a “feminist icon” and “renowned social activist” before asking about her newly published book, My Life on the Road....

    President Barack Obama has named sixteen recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which is the nation’s highest civilian honor. Abortion activist Gloria Steinem will be one of the recipients. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is “presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors,” and Obama apparently believes dedicating one’s life to promoting abortion is a part of that list. Obama said “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their...

    During her speech at a Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma fundraiser on September 21, liberal feminist icon Gloria Steinem broached an uncomfortable topic for abortion proponents: the pandemic of missing girls. In 2011, that number was estimated to be 160 million. In her book, Unnatural selection: Choosing boys over girls, and the consequences of a world full of men, pro-abortion author Mara Hvistendahl, a correspondent for Science magazine, blamed ultrasound technology and abortion for the gendercide. This is simply common sense. I give Steinem points for raising the issue, particularly at a Planned Parenthood event, since it was only last...

    Gloria Steinem, the feminist icon of the 60's and 70's who founded Ms. Magazine and serves as one of the loudest cheerleaders for abortion in America, received the Medal of Freedom today from President Barack Obama. Ruth Tam, columnist for the Washington Post, had the privilege of interviewing Gloria. Here are some brief highlights: Tam: You spent your early career fighting for abortion rights. It’s still a hot-button issue. How has the fight over abortion changed in your lifetime and what’s the next battleground? Steinem: It shouldn’t be an issue. Approximately one in three women in this country needs...

    Obama Gives Radical Feminist Steinem Medal of Freedom President Obama said that Gloria Steinem “changed how women thought about themselves.” He also labeled her a “game-changer,” a “disrupter,” and a “champion noticer.” Obama stated, “She’s alert to all the ways, large and small, that women had been and, in some cases, continue to be treated unfairly just because they’re women… because of her work, across America and around the world, more women are afforded the respect and opportunities that they deserve.” Obama did not mention Steinem’s disdain for heterosexual relationships (Steinem infamously remarked that “a woman without a man is...

    While dedicated pro-lifers work to save babies, St. Norbert College will be doing something oddly different: welcoming radical pro-abortionist Gloria Steinem to speak on campus. The talk is scheduled next semester on April 21, 2015, according to a news release issued by the college.Every pro-lifer should sign this peaceful protest todayGiven that St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin is a Catholic institution, the invitation is causing confusion and scandal. Pro-life students and alumni are deeply troubled by the decision which, if not canceled, will give a Catholic platform to a notorious activist who publicly promotes the killing of innocent...

    Not Just Cos: Take back William Fulbright’s medal, too by Daniel Clark In the aftermath of the latest Bill Cosby revelations, it has been proposed that the fallen icon be stripped of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which was awarded to him by George W. Bush in 2002. A petition, being championed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), says Cosby “does not deserve to be on the list of distinguished recipients.” Well, if we’re going to hold the honorees to that standard, we also need to take back the award from the late Arkansas Senator J. William Fulbright. Imagine if Cosby...
